Po'd, I called them all today from my state rep right through Simmons, Dodd and Liberman. But I'm getting tired. I am after all a Grandpa to 5. :-}

I'm heading for bed in a few minutes. I need to make some phone calls tomorrow as well... I spent so much time on FR this afternoon (and firing off emails about this ruling to every non-FReeper friend and relative I know) that I didn't even think of making any calls until it was too late. Probably just as well... I could use the 24 hours to cool down.

I don't know when the wrecking ball is scheduled to demolish these unfortunate people's houses, but I really want to be there when it happens... perhaps standing with a large American flag (upside down?). I'm hoping and praying that somehow it won't ever happen...

Good night, and regards to your family and your lovely grandchildren. ;-)

They are only allowing us to retain our firearms legally for right now to keep people calm.

The attempt to remove firearms from private hands will be the signal for the Chinese PLA to invade. They may get some of mine, but they will never get them all.

The only thing laws written to counteract a bad law do is to make it easier to find another loophole, not to mention creating a a labyrinth of baby rulings that are incomprehensible and incoherent.

Give me a bad ruling that has been made better and I will give you lots of bad rulings made worse.
