    (hmm...on 2nd thought......Just kidding!!)
    Specifically on the marriage license, that was created initially to ban inter-racial marriage. It went to the SCOTUS which found that you couldn't require the marriage license of specific couples, and that's when it got expanded past inter-racial couples to everyone. The marriage license is not necessary, but the government took that power and once government usurps power it's damned hard to get it back again.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    From Firearms Laws for California:

    The waiting period and dealer application do not
    apply to
    transfers to police officers, other gun dealers,
    manufacturers, or importers, antique firearms, and rifles
    and shotguns which are classified as curios or relics by the
    federal government, infrequent gifts or transfers to one’s
    “immediate family,” an infrequent temporary loan not to
    exceed 30 days to a person who is not prohibited from
    possessing a firearm, and a transfer of a rifle or shotgun at
    auctions by nonprofit or public benefit corporations.

    ANTIQUES AND REPLICAS
    Antique firearm means any firearm not designed or
    redesigned for using rimfire or centerfire ammunition and
    manufactured in or before 1898
    (including any matchlock,
    flintlock, percussion cap or similar type of ignition system
    or replica thereof, whether actually manufactured before
    1898) and also any firearm manufactured in or before 1898
    using fixed ammunition which is no longer manufactured
    in the U.S. and is not readily available in the ordinary
    channels of commercial trade.

    Yeah, that was uncalled for. Way to rise above the crassness, pal.

    You don't follow history much, do you?
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    Preceding a statement with "not being mean but..." does not in any way mitigate the total lack of class and maturity of what followed it.

    Okay, so you've proven that at least two police officers in the history of America have been disarmed, so what? Besides rebutting Kor, what is your point? Is this meaningless aberration supposed to prove a trend of some sort? I mean, according to your logic we should disarm the police officers, too, since the risk of their being disarmed is so much greater than a teacher's.

    Oh, and unless you plan on showing me some actual data pertaining to the disarmament rate of police officers, don't bother with the red herring of telling me to search Google. If the disarming of police officers is reason enough to keep competent teachers from possessing a firearm then there should be some significant data to support that.

    Another point. Only in your non-thinking world would "Miss Landers" get a gun. Why not give one to Coach Kooi, my old trigonometry teacher? I'd like to see you take his gun...
