With this amendment, it seems reasonable enough.

Too lazy to read. Does the bill bar bar owners from having a no gun policy?

Finally, I will be able to fulfill my lifelong dream of opening a saloon and blowing away troublemakers with the 12 gauge double I'll keep behind the bar.

I always thought location-based gun control was stupid.

Yep, that was my thought. So instead of law abiding, American citizens being able to buy guns a bit cheaper, we'll get to have American soldiers getting shot by American made guns... well done Obama.

Dems just don't seem to have or want any education on firearms. Pelosi herself had .50 cal exorbitantly priced and tried to get it banned, while the price of .22 is ridiculously cheap. Yeah, criminals are going to kill you with .22 in the first place, you stupid cow.

So you have to own a gun...unless you're a felon...or crazy...or you don't want to...

Well you take all the fun out of it when you say it like that.

This is long, but very, very interesting.


And then there's this.

I have a sneaking suspicion that this Gun Control discussion is far from over.

That HB69 seems interesting. I wonder if it still restricts fully automatic weapons.

Did anyone read the article that a man committed suicide by shooting himself in the head at the Nascar race this past Sunday?

The race was in Texas and it was the NRA 500. The NRA sponsored the race.

For those curious in the "Stand Your Ground" aspect of the Zimmerman case, you can find the relavent Florida statute here: http://www.leg.state.fl.us/statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0700-0799/0776/0776.html

Specifically 776.013.3 is the statute that seems to apply to the case.

Doesn't matter anyway, it wasn't a stand your ground defense strategy.
