Good ruling for gun owners

I don't have the time or the inclination to read lengthy D.C. Circuit rulings but this appears to be good news for Second Amendment advocates. This is an issue I don't know enough about to really opine on and I have to admit that some of these black rifle gunbloggers scare the bejebus out of me, but the one thing I feel certain about is we don't want to allow our government to disarm law-abiding citizens.

The way I figure it, if my favorite conspiracy theory ever comes true and the government does declare martial law for political reasons rather than national security, these are the guys that will be fighting on the side of the people

I listened to a speech from a former congressman where he preached how bad the Republicans are in communicating there message to their base and to the public, and how the public does not know anything about what the republicans got done in the 109th congress. And while he was going on about the issues that the Republicans got done, he was also talking about the "earmarks". He explained to the conservative crowd, that "earmarks are les than one tenth of a percent of the federal budget" witch is a stunning fact that makes me wonder why this is the concern of our time in the conservative community.

As he finished his speech, I walked up to him and told him "Mr. Congressman, I might be wrong but I recall reading an article in the Wall St. Journal, about an official in CO criticizing an earmark that Sen. Allard (R-CO) inserted in a spending bill, saying that it takes away the money the State gets from the federal government." So I asked the Hon. Congressman "Is it true that when a congressman or senator inserts an earmark in a spending bill, he does not raise spending? That he just takes away the liberty from one bureaucrat to decide how to spend the money and decides himself where the money should go?"

The answer was yes.

So if earmarks do not raise spending and it's not more then one tenth of one percent of the budget, why is there so much noise about it?

Because we do not communicate, and nobody amongst us is aware of the facts. We have to start communicating, and shouldn't be afraid that someone will slam us, because if you fight back, you have a chance of winning, and if you don’t fight you don’t even have a chance of winning.

Prohibition wouldn't work any better for guns than for drugs anyhow.

Zoom - welcome to my little world. I'm not sure what this has to do with guns but I'd agree that communication is everything.

Whig - how true. I've taken flack for my SA support but I can't fail to see if they ban guns, only criminals will have them. I have to admit though, I'm a new convert to the so-called assault weapons. I still don't get why people want to hunt with them, but I've come to understand why a gun person would like to shoot them at the range.
