Wait? The "Iron Pipeline" runs North?

That's weird. Last I heard, that sucker was flowing like a river of deadly goodness to the South, where drug fueled crazies were using those easily purchased M16s and RPGs to take out the Mexican po-po.

Apparently, the gun control crowd was either wrong about the pipeline's direction, are stealing some other gun bigot's brilliantly clever term, or maybe they are just not creative enough to come up with a term of their own.

And how does a river flow from Georgia to New York anyways? That's like, against gravity and stuff. Come to think about it, iron doesn't really make a good river.

Silly people.

Notice that the prior restraint imposed on regular peaceable folk - which are legion in Georgia from my personal experience - in the form of instant background checks, wherein the gun shop owner calls the FBI about the buyer, is not really all that effective at stopping the bad guys. These laws were supposed to be the ticket for stopping the scumbags once and for all, and we just have to put up with the inconvenience because stopping scumbags saves babies. Period.

I'm not convinced.

This one particular store sold over 4,000 guns in three years, and had 83 sales denied. Not 83 felons convicted, or even caught for that matter, but sales denied, for whatever reason. I'm curious as to how many of those denials were overturned - probably most - and how many legitimate criminals were stopped from buying the gun because the ATF arrested them. My guess is somewhere around zero.

So why are we being inconvenienced again? Seems to me that the most logical way to stop this massive pipeline of molten hot iron from traveling in two directions simultaneously is to annihilate Interstate 95.

That put a smile on your face, didn't it?!?!
