2. I don't believe either of those amendments apply to issuing municipal permits

Especially not the second amendment. Where is this chief stopping or stripping anyone from their guns?

3. Yeh, that's a real shame.

Because I'm sure all those guns sold were going to be part of a well-regulated militia.
Why don't you just stay in your gungeon.
