It wouldn’t have to be such a quest if I lived in a state that respected the US Constitution and the rights of the people.

"President Obama is disappointed by the waning prospects for federal civilian disarmament proposals. And so the Petulant in Chief played the scold in this morning’s speech. In front of a gaggle of mothers who’d lost children to 'gun violence,' Mr Obama hectored his audience from on-high. He brazenly claimed that an assault weapons ban, ammunition capacity limits and federal gun registration would not be 'taking away anyone’s gun rights.' He criticized pro-gun rights supporters for 'running out the clock.' And admitted that no matter what, 'there would still be gun deaths.'

Even more despicably, Andy blamed 'bad' bits of the bill on Mayor Bloomberg and the Brady Campaign—indicating that the Governor’s minions has surrendered legislative power to the civilian disarmament industry.

... "Yet, it's within the purview of government to put reasonable restrictions on constitutional rights. Libel and slander laws restrict the First Amendment freedoms of press and speech. Zoning laws restrict Fifth Amendment property rights. As for the Second Amendment, automatic weapons in the hands of private citizens have been all but banned since 1934, and few people object. Similarly, it's illegal for private citizens to own mortars or Stinger missiles. Other than a handful of extremists hanging out in the wilderness, nobody's arguing against such restrictions." ...
