"We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans to own handguns and rifles that we are unable to think clearly about reality."-Bill Clinton
"If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees."-Bill Clinton

You are not allowed to own a gun and if you do own a gun, I think you should go to prison.'"

Those quotes are prime examples of how our elected officials, past and present, disrespect the laws and the constitution they have sworn to uphold. What kind of egotistical personality does it take to put ones self above the great minds that drafted the foundations of this country that have withstood the test of time? But more importantly, how did those idiots get elected?
