    Interesting segment on NPR's 'On Point' w/ Tom Ashbrook about McDonald/Chicago.

    A fair amount of bad information from the anti's (go figure), but some rebuttal from Eugene Volokh. Unfortunately they did not have a more spirited pro-2A commenter.

    -__- I can't take anything this article/recording says seriously after reading that.

    It's the dreaded single-shot bolt-action assault weapon!

    It's flat-black with scary-looking holes and a scope. Therefore, it is dangerous. Get with the program.

    Yes, and let's hope that Mayor Daley is at the other end of the barrel!

    It would be appreciated if you properly attributed the quote On Point Radio.

    I'm fairly confident that "Chicago Mayor Richard Daley points to...." will not be taken as a direct quote from Jack House.

    For anyone confused by this, let me explain: Jack House did not say that, On Point Radio did.

    Edit to add: The vB quoting system is one of the reasons I wish that John and Mike had chosen an open source forum. The vB quoting system is second in suckiness only to mywowbb.

    Does it have a thing in the back that goes up?
    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.
