“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” – Thomas Jefferson, Second Amendment of the Constitution
The gun debate rages on with no end in sight and other than platitudes no politician has the courage to touch the perennial third rail. If you think Obama is coming for your guns, chill. It simply isn’t going to happen and almost no one suggests it should.
Hebrew National Hot Dogs likes to advertise they “answer to a higher power“. Even though the slogan isn’t exactly non-controversial – some orthodox Jews claim they aren’t Glatt Kosher – they are, after all, in the business of making sausages.
