    "The way to stop a bad buy with a guy is with a good guy with a gun." Reading that just makes me think of the disastrous massacre waiting to happen when a crowd of people all pull out guns and initiate a circular firing squad. What's even worse about it is the proliferation of the "stand your ground" laws around the country. If someone makes a mistake, then no one can be held accountable because the "feared for their life."

    I think right to the pursuit of happiness outweighs the delusional paranoia of a survivalist wanting to be the next David Koresh.

    We expected something like 19 executive actions from the Imperial President. I own a lot of guns but none of the type that seem to horrify liberals. This is to be expected from the regulation King. Liberals love regulatons and limiting FREEDOM. I can't say I would be mad about it but it sure would help fund organizations that promote liberty.
