8. Would it be possible to bring back dueling?



As long as it is only open carry, no concealed. I would like to see who would take advantage of such a situation.

9. I think Jim Webb used to?

There have been several shootings in the Capitol over history. But they can't be trusted with canes, even.

10. OC should be legal anywhere.

We know our servants have many enemies, so why not allow them to protect themselves while at work.

12. Oh yeah. Because those teabaggers would NEVER try to use the opportunity to

pull off a coup a la The Handmaid's Tale.

The liberals would all think it was foolish, and the teabaggers would come armed, and that would be the end of democracy in the US.
