    I like the above but...

    I don't think in the current congress this bill has a snowballs chance in DeathValley, Ca. in August of getting passed and signed into law....

    Obama and the Bradycats will fight it tooth and nail.

    I sure hope they prove me wrong though!
    RIGHTS don't exist without RESPONSIBILITY!
    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.
    I will strive to stand for the rights of ANY person, even those folks with whom I disagree!
    As said by SVG--- "I am not anti-COP, I am PRO-Citizen" and I'll add, PRO-Constitution.
    If the above makes me a RADICAL or EXTREME--- So be it!

    2nd amendment says.... "...The right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!"

    The only reason there are any guns anywhere in the world is because they are being bought at gun shows using the "gun show loophole" and smuggled all over the world. If we'd stop making guns here in the States, they'd magically disappear, dontchaknow? :celebrate
