    We're being bombarded with this type of sh!t lately in time for the 20th anniversary of Port Arthur and a 'review' of the current gun laws. Sounds like we're going to screwed again.

    Interesting.

    Let us know what you need the REAL story on (if you don't happen to know it), and I'm sure the information will be forthcoming.
