    the right to bear arms should not be modified behind fleeting emotional issues...amazing how the govt took god outtah schools only to place guns in them...so much for atheist policy change...our founding fathers got most things right...stop throwing the baby out with the bath water...ill-formed conscience for politicians is nottah good combination!
