Here in beautiful Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, there is a stone wall just after you cross the Route 903 bridge into the east side of town, where people hang banners noting someone’s 40th birthday, or a wedding anniversary, or other things. There’s a banner up, right now — of which I meant to get a picture, before I caught the flu — advertising the gun show this weekend, in Memorial Hall, which is just across the baseball field from Jim Thorpe Area High School.

In support of the 2nd Amendment and the blatant attack on it by the Obama regime, firearms owners and gun advocacy groups around the country headed to gun shops, shooting ranges, and state capitals today as part of “Gun Appreciation Day.” The organizers were encouraging gun-rights supporters to “send a message” to President iWonTwice two days before his second Immaculation by “lining up around the block” at gun shops, ranges and shows with a copy of the Constitution, U.S. flags and a “Hands off my Guns” signs.

The part that disturbed me the most is that she stated that her children were asked these questions, every year, during their annual physicals. I don’t know how old Karen’s children are, but if they are old enough to be able to resist such questioning, I hope she is teaching them to tell the doctor that it’s none of his business.
In the meantime, again on our right to keep and bear arms, Phineas noted that technology has already made New York state’s ban on ammunition magazines capable to holding more than seven rounds obsolete.
