I'll have what they're having

And make it a double:
Favoring the constitutional right to bear arms over others' concerns about gun safety, Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill making Arizona the third state allowing people to carry a concealed weapon without requiring a permit.

The measure takes effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends, which likely puts the effective date in July or August.

"I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well," Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement.
Take that, you mealy-mouthed, panty-waisted, half-wit hoplophobes!

Damn, but don't it feel good to win one now and again. I think I'll look at some real-estate in Arizona, as it just vaulted itself into the upper reaches of my list of desirable places to inhabit on a semi-permanent basis.

Had to look that one up.

Good one to remember.

And yes it does feel good to "win one" every once in a while.

Although I am encouraged at the number of states that are nullifying federal firearm laws within their borders.

I can't take credit for that, although I wish I could... It's a Jeff Cooper creation.

Arizona passed their Firearms Freedom Act on the fifth, I believe, and Idaho on the eighth. I harbor no illusions about what the Feds think their Divine Right to be as it applies to (intra-)interstate commerce, but it'll be interesting to watch.

No doubts. Beauty in politics is rare. Now, to see beauty bloom and other, many other, pick up the ball. It is time states began playing hard ball, as well as citizens. There is no time like the present, though the past was much preferable. No time to cry over spilled milk while there is a chance to save it.

Blah, blah... blah... But I try.

Doom, there's no doubt that in this system, the People entertain a certain inertia that must be overcome in order to countermand the constant nibbling that the Parasitic class engages in. Considering the sum of the encroachment over the last century or so (and beyond), even those that do not recall the lack of their ancestors' chains are growing weary of the weight.

It continues.

I had heard this. Let us see how many protesters there are next year. lulz
