    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    The new MSM and anti gun definition of "assault weapon" is whatever you want it to be.

    I had a anti gunner tell me once that an "Assault weapon" was anything capable of killing more than one person without reloading. I replied, "So a single shot or double barrel shotgun with buckshot is potentially an assault weapon then? What about a blunderbuss from the Revolutionary war?"

    What? The guy didn't fill out a federal form and have a background check? But I thought universal background checks were supposed to be the cure for all this? That's what all the politicians on both sides are claiming.

    The MSM when doing a story never gets to the bottom line when interpreting a story like this. The bottom line, the guy was stopped when good guys with guns showed up.

    Of course he would have failed the background check as a felon...of course that's only if the "authorities" sent the data to NICS.
