    On this day in 1966 ( Gun control legislation)

    The 50th Anniversary of the sniper attack at the University of Texas at Austin. Then President LBJ wrote a letter to Congress urging the enactment of
    "gun control" legislation.

    Actually, the shooting was August 1, 1966. It took LBJ a month and a half to write the letter to Congress. He had already pushed for gun control before the shooting as it was. It wasn't until MLK and RFK in '68 did anyone jerk a knee in response. Bloody shirt wagging, indeed.

    Never read the legislation, was not able to object to it, and it does not apply as all gun laws are void.

    Simple, yes?

    The preponderance of evidence is obvious.

    I didn't know how to spell "for"..

    Here is a great quote that surely applies to Mr.Word Salad aka nightmare-- " He has Supreme Vanity" per William Faulkner.

    Also again for Mr.Word Salad "never argue with an idiot for he shall kill you and beat you down with experience."
