About halfway down is the part where the firearm thefts are talked about. I didn't realize this had happened.
Did I ask my legislators to introduce bills prohibiting the confiscation of otherwise legal weapons during civil disturbances? Did I support my legislators during the floor debates on their bills? Did I support them afterwards, including helping them get re-elected?
Did I write letters to the editors here at home and out there where this stuff was happening, decrying the abuse of power? Did I send a buck or two to the homeowner who is trying to sue to get his guns back, once I heard he was in court o the issue? Did I snap at the heels of NRA, GOA, JPFO, VCDL and everybody else to make the biggest stink possible over this abuse of power?
In case anyone wants to know, the answer is I used to be a lot better at doing that stuff, and I'm off to make amends right now. The line for kicking my butt for falling off starts right here -> "X" <- behind me.
