It's a bold strategy, Cotton, let's see if it pays off for 'em. Enforcing laws that have been on the books for decades? Give them full credit for thinking outside the box.

That's a flaw in the system, but if the old man's lawyer can't get the protective order blocked or removed, the law nonetheless says that the old man is a prohibited person. IMHO we can't be hypocrites. We constantly complain that we don't need new gun laws until they enforce the ones on the books and see if that makes a difference. Well -- here's a U.S. attorney who wants to enforce one of the laws that are on the books.

I feel sorry for any innocent men (or women) who might get Hoovered up in this but, overall, I can't legitimately object to a U.S. attorney prosecuting people who break the law.
