  •  I've wondered for years now why that (0+ / 0-)

    whole well regulated militia language has been basically ignored.

    Here in GA where Joe Bob down the street, who kicks his dogs and whacks his kids and beats his wife and hates liberals with a passion untold, associated with hate groups and sites on the web, has the "right" to own a gun, but my right not to be subjected to someone so unstable, who is armed, doesn't exist.  (Sorry to all the good Joe Bobs of the world - this is hypothetical, and I've lived here half my life, so I've seen it.)  That pisses me off.  I basically have the right to stay home and off the streets and highways, out of the malls, away from the post offices, etc.  Huh?    

    (Just for the record, I am about as anti-gun as one can get and think all hand guns should be melted down and molded into a memorial statue in memory of all those we have lost unnecessarily and tragically to gun violence, erected in a memorial park in DC)

    The GOP will destroy anything they can't own.
