"We should establish shooting galleries in all the large public and military schools, should maintain national target ranges in different parts of the country, and should in every way encourage the formation of rifle clubs throughout all parts of the land. The little Republic of Switzerland offers us an excellent example in all matters connected with building up an efficient citizen soldiery." Theodore Roosevelt, 1906 Do you think we will ever hear a President utter such words again? That is only a rhetorical question. I know answer. Future and current speeches will go something like this: "We need to expand the powers of so as to make our country secure". docmac86

I'm waiting for non-PC politician (I know, oxymoron) to run for some sort of office. I want him/her to stand up & say, "By gawd, I tired of these anti-gun types hawking coddling thugs. I'm sick of liberal types lambasting the police for arresting too many of a particular race type even though they are proved to have committed a crime.I'm sick of tree huggers wailing against a good sized truck or SUV & they want everyone driving a Yugo or Escort. I'm sick of welfare types who stay on it for years even though they're healthy enough to work." THAT would then be someone to vote for!!!
