Inspirational Quotes of the Week:
“This battle for “common-sense” gun control laws pits emotion and passion against logic and reason. All too often in such a contest, logic loses. So, expect more meaningless, if not harmful, “gun control” legislation. Good news – if you’re a crook.”
“It’s not a gun control problem; it’s a cultural control problem.”
