Blue Force Gear Quote of the Day: Meet the Second Amendment Strawman

“Like his favorite presidential candidate, Donald Trump, [Republican Congressman Dave Brat of Virginia] sees any limited, reasonable restriction on immediate access to guns, even to prevent potential murderers or terrorists from gaining access to weapons, as a violation of ‘our fundamental right to keep and bear arms’. Do Dave and Donald really believe that the drafters of the Second Amendment meant it to be a guarantee that criminals or the mentally ill could get weapons or that the United States must commit suicide by allowing access to weapons to potential terrorists?” – Bert Berlin in Dave Brat: Extreme on Guns [via]
