And what I meant to say was that it would not be surprising....
The 2nd Amendment is an anachronism.
What I find so amusing is the contradiction between those who (apparently) truly believe Trump will usher in a dictatorship and their desire to see gun ownership curtailed or ended altogether.
Nevertheless, I am comforted by the fact that many of my very responsible fellow citizens are armed.
Wow! BillW actually has a dictionary.
It's an unusual notion which the great majority of citizens in the US and particularly in the rest of the advanced world deem exactly backwards. Comfort, we feel, comes with almost nobody anywhere near us who is armed to the teeth with human-killing devices.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) is under fire after tweeting a gif from US TV show Parks and Recreation.
In a post thanking spokeswoman Dana Loesch "for being the voice of over 5 million NRA members", the gun rights advocates included a gif of main character Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler.
The show's co-creator, writer Michael Schur, responded by asking the NRA to remove the post.
His comments have been widely shared.
"Please take this down," Mr Schur wrote.
"I would prefer you not use a gif from a show I worked on to promote your pro-slaughter agenda."
Ms Poehler, who featured in the gif, does not have a Twitter account. But Mr Schur said she had asked him to pass on some choice, sweary remarks.
“I understand that you’re standing up for the NRA … but you just told this group of people that you’re standing up for them,” he said. “You are not standing up for them until you say, ‘I want less weapons.’”
The sheriff’s words were met with cheers and a standing ovation.
The difference between a serf and a free man.
As if the NRA is responsible for passing legislation ! Always looking for a scapegoat, but never addressing the real issue.

Sad to say he was likely a coward. [the Florida sheriff who didn't enter the school] Shouldn't have had the job. Of course, that doesn't mean the job isn't a worthy one.
The director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services informed employees in a letter on Thursday that its mission statement had been revised to “guide us in the years ahead.” Gone was the phrase that described the agency as securing “America’s promise as a nation of immigrants.”
