    I agree that it was stupid but the wording handed down from the Supreme Court alludes to the fact that localities can regulate how they want as long as it isn't an outright ban.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Stop being dishonest. That decesion was based on race not sexual preference.

    As far as this goes, I'm not really sure what legitimate state interest is served by the 1-per-month limit. How often do people buy 12 guns per year anyway? Couple years of that and you've got a serious arsenal. The people who do this are probably collectors or serious hobbyists, (or run a gun store, but I imagine a business is exempt?) not exactly the sort of people who go out and rob liquor stores.

    The training part I'm ok with. Too many idiots out there with no idea how to properly handle a gun. Trigger discipline, what's that?
    Always amazing how liberals like you are all for supressing rights spelled out literally in the constitution but when its something you want not defined by the constitution then its a right.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    More lies. No surprise considering the source.

    The judgment was based on race not sexual preference. Pretty sad to see you continue to lie about this despite being exposed every time you try it.

    It shouldn't take the SCOTUS to convince people that state and local governments can't circumvent The Constitution.

    Obama says that the Arizone immigration law is illegal. That logic makes every single gun control law in the country, illegal.

    I cant imagine the trauma of only being able to buy 1 gun a month.

    More like gays insist that launch weapons are "firearms" exactly the same as a rife in every way.

    I often suspect that they write such laws precisely so that SCOTUS can shoot them down and add Judicial precedent to the existing statute's credibility.
