Not a chance! Not a chance! Especially in Maine where the gun is a way of life. But handguns? I have yet to see a hunter with one and I’ve been living in Maine for all of seven years. (“Ha Ha!”, laughs the Mainer.)
Ah, but it’s the first step on the road to banning all guns — and, more importantly, to putting the National Rifle Association out of business. No, it’s not! Handguns can be banned and rifles, above 30 inches in length, say, not banned. See this interesting blog for a specific proposal. Well, the NRA is agin any bans, period, exclamation mark!
And the NRA together with the Republicans and the Bush administration rule the roost.
Hey, don’t the dems control both branches of Congress now? Well, they wouldn’t for long if they proposed banning handguns.
How many decades will have to pass in America before the handgun will have gone the way of the DoDo bird, like in England?
