Maine Sen. Ethan Strimling working months to ensure the rights of gun owners (May 16)?

I don’t think so.

Rep. Deborah Simpson teed off at the National Rifle Association?

I’m glad it got involved.

The police don’t know how to treat people’s firearms when they confiscate them. The people should be able to be reimbursed for damage police cause.

And why doesn’t Rep. Simpson introduce a bill that would really help victims of abuse? Such as providing the proper training in the use of firearms and/or a big discount on the purchase of a gun so that they might protect themselves?

Oh, I keep forgetting, that would make way too much sense. The thought of the people protecting themselves? I must be crazy.
