So their stats come from the NRA and the Cato Institute, from a National Review columnist, eh? Gonna go out on a limb and guess that some independent confirmation is needed.

Yes, it's true - you need to worry about "defending yourself" against all the evil thugs out there.

Unfortunately, what you don't get, is that those "thugs" are not who you think they are. the people who are REALLY going to hurt you usually wear suits and carry briefcases, not guns...and shooting them is illegal.

As director of homeland security, Jan Brewer promises to crack down on improper use of HTML tags. She has already passed "a href without /a" legislation in Arizona, aimed at preventing a proliferation of badly formatted links. Does it make any sense for legislation to favor drooling idiots who can't insert a link without displaying a faulty URL and selecting a line and a half of text, all while making the actual link a meaningless redirect?

Propoganda brought to you by the gunz 'n ammo industry, which enjoys fleecing rubes by booga booga scary stuff and by lobbying at the state and national level to get gun laws like this passed.

Hooray: more money for the fat cats, laughing all the way to the bank while idiotic rubes part with their hard earned cash for unneeded weapons.

The amazing thing is that I've lived as long as I have, and I've never, ever needed a gun. Not once. hmmm....
