I just knew the liberals would go after ammo in some form or another... "oh no, we won't take your guns away, you just won't be able to buy or afford the ammo for them! Aren't we clever???"

Bunch of fuckin' assholes is what they are... bastards!!! My wish: may the next home invasion, rape, robbery, murder or brutality of any kind be visited upon those people. See how fast the police can get there afterwards, to protect them.
