That right, however, is running headlong into a political realm that's rapidly spinning out of control.
Formerly respected generals band together with anti-gun nuts. Why would military figures be so intent on disarming us?
Nothing to suspect there, eh?
We are deluged with the increasingly false idea that we should not judge the entirety of the islamic cult by the actions of those who seek out ways to kill us.
And we are also somehow held responsible for the actions of those very cult members who are spilling our blood.
I remain troubled that those who've led many of our armed forces have come together with anti-gun hypocrites like Gabby Gifford's husband, Mark Kelly, to do their best to convince us that we have no right to own or operate so-called "assault rifles."
They will, no doubt, join Bloomberg's anti-gun, weaken-the-people empire. (Are these clowns being paid to sell us out?)
