"There is still time for Congress and the president to take steps to keep loaded firearms away from the valleys of Yellowstone, the cliffs of Yosemite, and the Statue of Liberty -- but they need to act quickly," said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.It won't take long after the enactment of this law that nothing will happen. There won't be blood in the streets or anything of the sort, but sometime years down the road some poor citizen will gun down a violent scumbag or starving diseased animal and it will have been worth it. If it saves one life!!
On another note, it is fully presumed that the first family was protected by at least two dozen guys with guns during their trip to Yosemite this weekend.
In other news, seven people were shot in the "Gun Free" bastion of our nation this weekend. The Metro police are no doubt scouring their new gun registration for the whodunnit, as well as talking with local NRA members.
