Proof positive why draconian firearms laws should allow only cops to have ARs: This particular cop only wounded three students in his safety demonstration.

Dick Heller, famed for the Heller gun law SCOTUS decision, is suing Washington, DC over their gun registration laws.. That's the ticket. More people's judges deciding your Gawd given rights. I have a lot of faith in our legal system to undo draconian gun laws.

The rumor is that in New York so far compliance with the new gun laws is less than 10 percent at the moment. Even so, gun owners are worried about what the state will do next. New York is a exemplar of what happens when a political entity tightens gun laws so much that confiscation becomes the end purpose. Those who haven't registered their guns still get to vote.

Finally, another bit of invective against Lt Col. Robert Bateman's oath, or disregard for it, regarding taking guns from your cold, dead hands. I am sure Col. Bateman is shaking in his jackboots.
