    "... , Shall Not Be Infringed." Means:

    There are no resealable restrictions.

    Let not forget the Poll Tax.
     

  3. My hat goes off to Ms. Miller for not taking no for an answer.

    There is a cure but it is vicious.

    Remember the Liberator pistols from WWII? The millions that were made for $4/ea, to be dropped to the Resistance in France and other Nazi occupied areas?

    We need to get another contract to make several million more, and hand them out to registered voters in Illinois and Washington DC.

    They would make fairly decent personal defense handguns. They are certainly better than nothing.

    It would be fun to watch Bloomberg and the other gun control idiots have a simultaneous heart attack and stroke, when they got the news.

    Yeah, I know it won't happen, but it's a nice mental picture, anyways.

    The Fox News article you referenced is two months old. Emily Miller's most recent article indicates that positive changes are coming as soon as this summer.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/apr/17/dc-a-bit-more-gun-friendly/

    Also, she details a D.C. City Councilman's first shooting range trip. Attitudes of the politicians might be slowly changing as well. Indicates that the best way to get people on our side is show them what law abiding citizens actually do with firearms.

    Emily isn't stopping until there's CC in D.C. though.

    It's good if they keep placing restrictions. Every time they place a restriction, it can be challenged. Eventually, the SCOTUS will erode every little attempt to bar gun ownership, and the jurisprudence will be clear that you can't do a, b, c, d, or e. Right now there isn't much jurisprudence at all. These new ordinances in Chicago and DC need to be challenged the exact same way they challenged the ban originally.

    Or Obama could get re-elected and put a couple new liberals on the court and they could reverse all the progress we have made...

    The GT libs contend that O isn't anti-gun or will not push anti-gun legislation. Regardless of whether that is true or not we know his SCOTUS picks are. Does anyone really think that will change?

    We have guns here in Illinois. We just can't use them.

    Registered voters are the problem. Just look at who they elect in those places.
