22. Your analogy is interesting.
Edited on Thu Jul-17-08 09:08 PM by Dimensio0
Why do you suggest that a Washington DC issued firearms permit "should" be like an implementation that was ruled unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court? Do you believe it is preferrable that the District of Columbia expend further financial resources, supported by taxpayers, upon an ultimately doomed legal battle? Additionally, why do you advocate practices that demonstrably violate the United States Constitution?
