Quote of the Day

Today's quote is from JayG, who is Stuck in Massachusetts in case you hadn't heard:
We don't like the laws, no; but we certainly have to abide by them.
Jay highlights something that I think distinguishes responsible gun owners from the criminals we get lumped in with by the anti-gun crowd.  We may disagree with a law, believe that that it is unconstitutional, and scream to heaven while we fight it in the courts and legislature, but we will follow it. We didn't wholesale disregard the AWB.  We don't subvert NFA '34 or GCA '68.  We follow them.

What the anti-rights movement doesn't understand is that the people who will do evil with their firearms don't follow the existing laws, and won't follow any new gun laws.  The only people who will be inconvenienced and stripped of their rights by any new gun restrictions are the law abiding citizens who are already following the existing laws.
