Re: Gun Ban

I would not look at it as being fed a line.
I would look at it as a reality.
The problem is it's seems like they hand out licenses like it is a right. How some people drive a car or an 18 wheeler it's amazing how they get a license.
All in the name of making money.

Re: Gun Ban

To compare being allowed to drive a car and owning a gun is two different things. The legal ability to drive a car is a privilege. The ...

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. This is the 2nd amendment.

Re: Deep State &^%$

I would agree that it will probably not see the light of day.
Depending how much was to be redacted, congress should make it public and let those out there do their homework.
It could be misleading, but if the A.C.L.U. has an interest in it then maybe there is something more to it.
We may never know.
