    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    Principals with principles do seem in short supply.

    A meaning of principle, that I appreciate, is that which is not compromised.

    97.268% No and still climbing.

    The page is interestingly arranged, with tracking cookies calling other tracking cookies, likely why some have had difficulties visiting the poll.

    Absolutely, I would support stricter gun laws!!! I firmly believe every eligible adult should be required to own at least one firearm and learn to operate it correctly and safely!!! Each member of the "Unorganized Militia" should practice at the range on a regular basis, and sign a pledge to honor his duty to protect himself, his home, and his family against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    I think when a person registers to vote, he should be told, "You have the right to a gun, and if you cannot afford one, a gun will be provided to you at public expense."

    How you like THEM apples?

    By the way, nothing I say on this website as "user" should be taken as either advertising for attorney services or legal advice, merely personal opinion. Everyone having a question regarding the application of law to the facts of their situation should seek the advice of an attorney competent in the subject matter of the issues presented and licensed to practice in the relevant state.
