    Too much to ask?

    During the recent debate leading up to the U.S. Senate’s shameful rejection of gun background checks for gun purchasers, some gun owners insisted they needed their weapons in order to be able to protect themselves from the federal government. But if that’s truly the case, given the advancement in weaponry since the Second Amendment was crafted more than 200 years ago, shouldn’t we at least be able, as a free people, to have access to tanks. Or, even better, how about drones?

    That’s what I want, my own personal Predator Drone (then we’ll see what’s what).
