Quote of the day—Violence Policy Center

An objection continually raised to gun control is that the Second Amendment to the Constitution somehow forbids it. This is pure myth. No gun control law has ever been overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court on Second Amendment grounds. Federal bans on machine guns as well as city ordinances banning handgun possession have remained on the books for decades—despite vigorous court challenges.

If Congress or individual states want to ban handguns, they can do so constitutionally—all they need is the will.

[Of course the Heller and McDonald decisions falsified these claims. But don’t ever forget these people want to ban guns and pay others to forcibly take them away from us. And given the correct Supreme Court they will try.—Joe]

    Judges, Judges, Judges, Judges.

    The other:
    Take non-gun folks to the range. The opinion “conversion” rate is very high.
