What is the point of a petition, seems like it would be better for pro gun people to contact your congressional representatives, do you kno whow a bill becomes a law?

Very melodramatic and useless action, but at least it consumes your time.

Sorry. I don't get goaded into reading links. I doubt anyone here does. If you have to coerce someone into reading your links I'm thinking that's a sign your links aren't exactly compelling.

I did read what Di Fi proposed by looking at her web site before this thread began. She also has a bill to combat the tunnels illegals use to cross into this country. Going to give us a link on that? How about a petition to deport Diane Feinstein because she doesn't want illegals tunneling into this country?

Heller vs DC, for one of the most recent.

"2. Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose."

Yes, that's a quote from the court's opinion.

I'd bet you or most NRA types who cite that case didn't know that.

As to what venue, what jurisdiction, I already stated the Supreme Court. I hope I don't need to tell you their jurisdiction.

I read alot more. Not relying on those blogs, fyi.

You may want to google and read the other 90,000 points of view in america these days.Its not wise to assume everyone buys the msm. I tuned out CNN and korporate media years ago.
