I know, and I'm not trying to bash your personal beliefs. To be honest, we don't own any guns for political reasons. We have them for hunting and protection purposes. I've said before, but we live in an area where if someone broke in here and victimized us, first responders would be about 15-20 minutes away, and no neighbors in earshot. I value our right to protect ourselves. When we had our business in the city, even, I've had to deter a potential robber with my 1911. At the time, my daughter and I lived in a small area above the club/retail area. I don't make any apologies for that.

I understand your feelings, it's just weird to hear an anarchist be for federal regulations, that's all.
Look at these eyebrows. These are attack eyebrows! They could take off bottle caps!
