It would be funny if it weren't so sad.
Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one. The road goes upward toward the light; but the laden traveller may never reach the end of it.  - Ursula Le Guin

Exactly. If they really believed that "weapons of war don't belong on our streets," they'd confiscate the very guns they actually have Constitutional authority to confiscate, and give them back their revolvers and shotguns.

Just another example of guns for me, but not for thee.

"Shelter in place" is simply a softened term describing Martial Law.

Diane Feinstein was asked about whether it may have been a good idea for Watertown residents to have guns, while the mad bomber was at large. She basically said yes, but not "assault weapons."

The interviewer failed to ask why not, when the police were using them.

Because it makes perfect sense for private citizens, who do not have body armor, select-fire weapons, and a radio connection to armed, trained, and rapidly-available backup in the event of a criminal attack, to be restricted to artificially-low-capacity and low-power weapons for defensive purposes against such an attack, of course!  :facepalm:

If I was in Boston, I would have just stepped out on the porch and fired my shotgun into the air  :angel:

Of course!  It's one of those high capacity double barreled shotguns.
