    Same here in Houston. Actually when I pulled into the complex this afternoon saw a guy with 3 rifle cases with tags on em. not sure if they were full - but three new cases = there is 3 rifles or soon will be.

    I'm just an occasional lurker, but I thought I could pass on some useful information. That goal is on the Obama campaign webiste:

    http://origin.barackobama.com/issues/urban_policy/

    "Address Gun Violence in Cities: As president, Barack Obama would repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, which restricts the ability of local law enforcement to access important gun trace information, and give police officers across the nation the tools they need to solve gun crimes and fight the illegal arms trade. Obama and Biden also favor commonsense measures that respect the Second Amendment rights of gun owners, while keeping guns away from children and from criminals who shouldn't have them. They support closing the gun show loophole and making guns in this country childproof. They also support making the expired federal Assault Weapons Ban permanent, as such weapons belong on foreign battlefields and not on our streets. "

    i know its been brought up many times...but do people really lack the common sense in thinking that if there is a "ban" in place people already committing crimes with deadly weapons not commit another crime and acquire the guns illegally?!

    way too many of those jackoffs around...

    rational thought is apparently a thing of the past.

    Unfortunately, yes, they do have that mindset.
