The implication of the above stories is that there's some massive protest going on, even shades of "revolution". The story seems only to be reported in conservative media. I think the story resonates very differently depending on how you feel about gun control.

The law:

You even found an article on it on Infowars. I looked for there but didn't see it. I sure would like to have you as a detective on my team if I were in charge of police investigations... but you would probably be my boss instead. If you would even allow me to be on your team. :)

US striving for a better mechanism of gun control has born much bunk and rightly wrongly or sadly the bunk is winning the higher ground

the NRA use a bit of word smithing editing down the 2ndA from "A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."


reducing it down and only proclaim over NRA headquarter office that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

Slightly missing the 1791 idea of few blokes with muskets keeping, we the people bit safer
