A Novel Approach to Gun Control

I'll be damned. Illinois has figured it out. Keep an eye out folks, before long we will see FOID legislation being pushed in Congress. If they can't ban our guns they will tie us up in red tape to keep us from purchasing any that way. Then they can say we're not keeping you from buying anything, we just have a huge backlog, just be patient, your paperwork will come through within the next 75 years.[link]

Quote for the Day

"Try this thought experiment. Pretend you're a tyrant. Among your many liberty-destroying objectives are extermination of blacks, Jews and Catholics. Which would you prefer, a United States with political power centralized in Washington, powerful government agencies with detailed information on Americans and compliant states, or power widely dispersed over 50 states, thousands of local jurisdictions and a limited federal government?" -- Walter E. Williams
