I thought this was going to be about rifles, shotguns and handguns. My rule is don't shoot nothing you don't want shot and all will be well. If you aim that empty gun at things you don't want shot someday it won't be empty and you will have a very bad day.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
