And, the next time I hear somebody saying that the Founders never wanted you to practice your Second Amendment rights with a semiautomatic weapon (my sig), kindly ask them if they are exercising their First Amendment rights with a quill pen.”

Well said.
Since I only recently coughed up $70 for three years, I have a question that you might have a merited opinion on.

Bersa Thunder UC 9mm - or - Smith & Wesson Shield 9mm? (I can't purchase until 2013 so I have time to weigh my options.)
