Exactly right, Legal Texan. The gun itself isn't what determines legal/illegal status. It's the use and possession that determines such. When a criminal obtains a firearm illegally, the firearm isn't illegal - the act of obtaining it is.
The only one "blind and stupid" here - and bigoted - is Geraldo. "Just as protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children." Actually, Geraldo, a federal background check when applying for a permit (as I would have to here in NJ) would prevent "domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list" from obtaining said permit. And what constitutes an "all-around dim bulb"? As to your question, "What was she training for, revolution? Invasion? Service in the coming post-apocalyptic social disorder?" Is every "gun nut" one who is preparing for such things? This is the type of stereotyping you typically claim to be against. Owning and training with a firearm can't simply be about self-defense? Granted, I do agree that in no way should a 9yr old be holding, let alone firing, an automatic Uzi - but the end result serves as the example as to why. Not to mention, the most basic of protocols when having a young child fire ANY firearm were broken left, right, and center. I just wonder, after reading your comments, Geraldo, who exactly is the "blind", the "stupid", and the "nut"?

Knee-jerk politics exhibited by Obama, re: Henry Louis Gates: "...not having been there and not seeing all the facts..... the Cambridge police acted stupidly."
....which is why I wrote-in "No Confidence" his first time around and I'll do it a second time. "...an astounding accomplishment for any conservative in a Democratic stronghold like New Jersey..."? Aside from the mainstream media who refer to ALL Republicans as "conservative", who the hell thinks he's "conservative"? Usually when anything with an "R" next to their name wins in a "D" dominant state, chances are that the "R" is short for RINO and anything but "conservative".
To a law-abiding citizen, a gun-free zone means you can not bring your firearm(s) into that particular zone or you will be punished by law. To a criminal wanting to commit robbery or mass murder, a gun-free zone is merely a target-rich environment in which he/she knows in advance where to go in order to meet the least resistance. I think every lawmaker who advocates such blatantly dangerous (if not outright stupid) laws should themselves live in a gun-free zone... no protection at their office, no protection when traveling, no protection at their homes, etc. And like gun-free zones, let's advertise WHO has been designated "gun-free" and who doesn't have security.
