"How did Utah's gun-toting lunatic fringe manage to shake me down for some extra change to purchase courthouse gun lockers? I mean, what brilliant politicians thought this one out?

Reasonable restrictions on gun ownership make sense, as do reasonable regulations of child pornography. Both guns and kiddie porn can cause serious harm.

But those who favor gun control rarely like porn control, because the First Amendment absolutely protects speech (as well as flag burning and lap dancing), while they believe that the Second Amendment guarantees the right of the people to keep and bear only cap pistols and BB guns - or something like that.
