    perfectly legal.
    What those 87 gun stores in Phoenix (responsible for about 50% of guns sold to Mexican criminals) is perfectly legal.
    Why would we raid them when they're not breaking the law?

      I thought they were already illegal.

      Imagine my surprise to find out they are legal.

      Apparently, even though people are complaining about them, they aren't illegal and people can do as they wish.

      Why would we want to continue to tolerate such things?

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

    •  Is it? That would be different from drug law. (0+ / 0-)

      It may be perfectly legal for all I know, but if you owned an apartment building and there were hundreds of meth labs in it, the DEA would wonder about you (and cause you trouble).

      •  Are meth labs legal where you are? (0+ / 0-)

        My point was that we need to change the laws, not raid gun stores for doing something the law now allows.
