"It is at this time of the year that some sentimental Americans reflect on the greatness of the Founding Fathers." ...

"September 11, 2001 should have awakened America to the harsh realities of life, and the need to reassess its priorities for the sake of its future.

"Yet, whether prompted by their indifference or the hope of political gain, all who do so are begging America's enemies to strike once again."

In fact,' Michel added, 'the major ammunition manufactures are warning that if SB 357 is passed, they will abandon the California market.'"

"...Council is helping keep alive the national Democratic Party's gun control agenda, which has lost credibility nationally and in Ohio, and cost that political party election after election. ...study after study has proven that these failed social experiments do nothing to control crime. Add to that the city's own statistics show that the police property room is being flooded with 9mm handguns, and that so-called 'assault weapons' are the least of the financially-strapped city's worries. This issue cost Columbus taxpayers dearly when politicians rammed this through 16 years ago. Once again, it does not seem that Council cares that taxpayers and businesses will suffer for their actions."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution... The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down... a person cannot be compelled 'to purchase, through a license fee or a license tax, the privilege freely granted by the constitution.' —MURDOCK V. PENNSYLVANIA 319 US 105 (1942)
