In its petition to the Supreme Court the District of Columbia made the absurd argument that banning handguns was o.k. because the people could still have shotguns and rifles.
The D.C. ban defines handgun as a firearm that can be operated with one hand. My grandfather lost an arm in WWII. So the D.C gun ban would disarm him because he lost an arm in defense of his country???
Many disabled veterans and stroke patients only have use of one arm. Why should this handicap remove their ability to defend themselves?
Shame on the D.C. Council. DisabledVets deserve better.
He wore his gun outside his pants for all the honest world to see. Pancho & Lefty
The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us....There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! ...The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, Sir, let it come …………. PATRICK HENRY speech 1776
