Very interesting read KLB! Thanks for posting. :tiphat:

It contains a lot of what the forum members already know, but it's good to see it in print.

I'll bet the MDA's & Bloombergers will get a stomach ache after reading the article. :lol:

The cultural shift may also help to explain the U.S. Supreme Court’s sudden discovery of the Second Amendment in 2008, when it invalidated Washington D.C.’s handgun ban.
I got a little chuckle out of this line. Emphasis mine.

So did I! I had to read it 2 times to fully appreciate the humor.....kind of out of context humor from such a serious article.
