Montana's stand for 2nd and 10th Amendments

I find it interesting (but hardly surprising) that the Obama administration has taken a position of opposition to these laws. What makes this interesting is that Obama, you may remember, once said during the 2008 campaign, in reference to gun laws, that "what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne." Never mind that what he claims "works" in Chicago, works so well that Chicago was the "murder capital" of the U.S. in 2008, and that this past summer, Chicago violence was so pervasive and brutal that hospitals were running out of blood.

Never mind all that--consider instead the disingenuousness of advocating a need for different gun laws in different locales, while trying to drum up support for more restrictive federal gun laws, which would apply everywhere. Then, consider the fact that when states take the one measure that would allow them to opt out of gun laws that do not "work" for them, the administration opposes them. Is it not the case that "what works in Hoboken may not work in Helena?" [More]
That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner column. Hope you like.

Linked to your post from Foundations of Government, States with a quotation.

Is there anything more important from our Government than the Bill of Rights that can be handed down to our children? I don't think so.

I also linked to your article. This article is a good summary of what has happend with the FFA so far, and the utter, bald faced hypocrisy of the Administration's reaction to it.

Interesting times.

By the way, Kurt, it's good to see you up and taking nourishment. Welcome back.

Best Wishes,
PolyKahr
