I watched Stephen Halbrook give his two cents on C-SPAN this morning. After Mr. Halbrook was done speaking, Senator Leahy proceeded to grill him on why his home state of Vermont was so much more accepting of gun rights than the state of Virginia where the Senator lives when he is doing his Congrssional business. Completely missed the boat since this is about someone who will enforce federal laws, I thought.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” - Samuel Adams
