Jason's situation has generated a lot of comments around the blogosphere. Most have been supportive but a few haven't been. It's interesting how gun owners can turn so quickly on their own kind because of seemingly minute differences. Disagreeing with...

Happy B.O.R. Day

Happy Bill of Rights Day. (Although I find it kind of ironic that the great socialist bastard of the 1930's & 1940's was the one to have signed the resolution acknowledging them, considering the blatent disregard he showed for them.)...
