    changes the fact that gun ownership is a Constitutionally-protected right.

      'Constitutionally-protected right' infallibly correct into perpetuity. See the 13th Amendment.

      KV and you keep saying just repeal it, and "Good luck with that."

      Repeal isn't necessary. Modification is, and that can be done legislatively and judicially. Executive orders work, also.

      I know you say you favor expanded background checks at least. However, your continued intransigence on other aspects is disappointing.

      Does it make you feel more righteous knowing your 'right' to a gun was predicated on maintaining slavery?
      which is sheer unadulterated inflammatory South-bashing BS, and will therefore become heroic defense of the truth at DK.

      •  Thanks, BlackSheep1. (0+ / 0-)

        But I doubt anyone else will ever repeat it, since the efforts by the President have been announced.

        Although if I wanted to bash the South, I'd use much more current and pointed arguments.

        However, since Mississippi, Missouri and Florida are all making Texas look almost-kinda-sorta-not-quite-so-regressive I won't.

        This week, anyway.
