33. Care to substantiate that?
"Court records show Maldonado has a juvenile criminal history dating back to 1998. He has been convicted of burglary, theft and trafficking in stolen property, and the records indicate he had been ordered by a judge not to possess any weapons.
Another co-worker, Edward Zeke, described Maldonado as a gun enthusiast who was "unstable, with a drug problem.""

So he can't legally so much as touch a gun, or a single round of ammunition, couldn't pass the background check to buy a gun, and whoever gave him the gun probably committed a felony...

I suppose the 18-year-old who murdered that girl's parents last week was just a typical blogger, too...he had a blog, he committed a murder, ergo bloggers are murderers...

Absurdly, due to the gun lobby and the corrupt GOP, Bullseye remains open for "business" and gun laws have been changed so that it no longer is required to have a written inventory...and cannot be sued for "losing track of guns".

Care to substantiate that? Please show me in the text of the law where it repeals the recordkeeping requirements of the Gun Control Act of 1968. You can find the text of the law at

Betcha can't...
