Quote of the Day

"I hate to break this to you, but as long as I have a brain and two functioning hands, I have that right and the ability to exercise [the right to bear arms]. The desk lamp next to me, or the pencils in the cup on my desk, all have the capacity to be used as weapons. I can go outside, break a stick off a tree, and sharpen it into a spear–or spend a bit more time and turn it into a projectile-launching weapon–and there’s absolutely no law that can eliminate that ability. Whether you like it or not, people have the desire for personal weapons, and the ability to make them out of stuff we find around us at a moment’s notice. And by the way: it’s not up to you to decide what should be “allowed” to me, thank you very much."
