At one point during the recent hearings on Capitol Hill Wayne LaPierre says, “....nor do we believe that government should dictate what we can lawfully own and use to protect our families....” Wow. He does not get that it is precisely the role of government to do exactly that, to decide, to legislate what people can lawfully own and use. Wake the hell up, Wayne! That is PRECISELY the roll of government.
