But then, as the saying goes, even a broken clock is right twice a day. (For all you young’ns out there, clocks used to have ‘hands’ that pointed at static numbers on a circle of numbers 1-12.)
According to an article referenced in John Sigler’s TownHall article, Obama is quoted as saying:
National legislation will prevent other states’ flawed concealed-weapons laws from threatening the safety of Illinois residents.
in a February 20, 2004 Chicago Tribune story.
What I agree with is the first part of that. Let’s have national legislation that codifies the incorporation of the Second Amendment against the states. Part of that should be elminating states flawed conceal-weapons laws on the books and just, by golly, getting out of the way of citizens exercise of their God given right to bear arms. Vermont style.
