    If you wonder how the NRA has the influence that it does, consider that they spent 20 million lobbying (contributing) to congress and many, many democrats are on their “A” list. The gun control lobby spent 4 thousand. Lots of democrats from heavy gun owner states are going to be in a bind for the 2014 election if they are seen as supporting gun control.

    There are reasonable limits to the 2nd Amendment as there are to all the amendments. Otherwise, someone could project a porn movie onto your house. Or do you support an equally unlimited (and non-historical) interpretation of the First Amendment?

    Don’t worry; I’m sure Gresch belongs to a well-regulated militia.
    Ultimate gun nut reductio ad absurdum: “If a politician isn’t perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash — for any rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything — without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn’t your friend no matter what he tells you.” (L. Neil Smith, sourced at Wikiquote)

    At a gun-buyback in a city nearby someone brought in two rocket launcher tubes and got $75 plus tickets to a baseball game and a hockey game for each one.
    The news report said that the launchers wer one-time throw away items, and were not useful for anything.
    Turns out, other cities have had similar rocket launchers turned in. My question is where did the rockets go?

    “There is a need for more state, fully independent from all federal control, well regulated militias.”
    Really? Why is there a need for this?

    As an African used to hearing charges levelled at the entire continent being rife with corruption, I’m ever so bemused to see it is little better in the ol’ U.S. of A. Weren’t you a beacon on a hill or something?

    Yesterday I was at my local Kroger buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Jake, the Wonder Dog and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

    What did she think I had an elephant?

    So because I’m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

    I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)

    Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned me.

    I told her no, I stopped to pee on a fire hydrant and a car hit me.

    I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

    It’s the supreme court that says what the 2nd amendment covers, not the NRA or other death merchants, and reasonable restrictions on arms (bomb making equipment, surface-to-air missles, and high-capacity magazines) are still perfectly okay with the supremes.

    Do you support the constitution? Liberals can’t stand it when “It” stands in their way. I’d not vote for any pansy that can’t abide free citizens….

    You can purchase the used tubes off of govt auction sites… for scrap metal prices, because, that’s all they are… a simple tube (that one time had a single use rocket propelled grenade in it). You can’t (believe it or not!!!) rockets in this country… background check or not.

    Yeah, I need a flame-thrower so I can combine hunting & cooking into one neat package.

    Alos, I’ll be prepared for the zombie horde.
