The gun grabbers figure that even if they can't win a suit, they can run them out of business by forcing them to spend a lot on lawyers and whatever else it takes to defend themselves. Meanwhile, the illegal gun dealers keep on selling guns to criminals on the street."

"The restaurateur was a victim in a pattern of crime in the city in the past month. Six restaurants, including his, have been robbed by armed men in the last four weeks.

And what cowardly piece of "advice" do the cops give these victims?

" 'We don't want anyone to resist. We don't want anyone to be harmed,' Campbell said. 'Give them the money and act as a good witness.' "

"Recently I visited Potomac Arms, a gun shop on the Potomac River in Alexandria, Virginia. Making my way past the samurai swords and shotguns, I found the 17-inch Anzio Ironworks .50-caliber "take-down" rifle--named because it can be disassembled in less than 25 seconds--on display. Another brand of .50-caliber, an ArmaLite, was available in the back, a clerk told me. Buying either gun would not be difficult: Under the Brady Bill, I'd need to show identification, after which my name would be run through a computer to check my criminal and immigration status. With a clean record, I could pay and take the gun with me-- with no permanent state or federal record of the sale required."

Lies, lies and more lies from the fascist left. In order to purchase said firearm he must fill out Form 4473 - a federal record of the sale, which the dealer must keep until hell freezes over.
