You might notice that something seems off about a Democratic state senator sponsoring a bill loosening firearm restrictions, that law speeding through a Democrat-controlled legislature, and then a feverishly anti-gun governor stamping it with approval.

This is merely a case of the city and state colluding to keep the Court from settling the matter once and for all.
