First handgun I ever bought and the only one that is registered because I bought it in California in 1969/70 right after I got married, poor sailors couldn't afford expensive guns or good neighborhoods so this H&R 922 had to do double duty as wife's house gun and rabbit getter for the pot.
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.
