militias need to be able to overthrow the government at the drop of a hat.  sometimes you don't have time to go to your car or house to retrieve your rifle, you need that handgun NOW   :roll:

It is just too cumbersome to transport long rifles and/or shotguns while riding in our fancy new bike lanes.

I haven't read the dissent yet, but does anybody know if they used my dissent:

There's only one purpose for a handgun - to kill another human being.
That's all I would say. [/b]
I've been many places in this world, some developed, some developing, some not developed at all.  And in only one place have I ever had a hand gun drawn on me: Washington, DC.
 
 Coincidentally, it happened no more than 5 minutes after I decided to move to San Francisco with Smackette, not before.  It simply reaffirmed my decision.  Best $100 I ever "gave" away.

But I must first pass along this rather brilliant observation from professor Stephen Wermiel from American University, who wonders why none of the dissenters cautioned the majority that today's decision "will almost certainly cause more Americans to be killed."

Is it worth having a discussion when people don't seem to know the difference between concealed carry and being able to possess a handgun IN YOUR OWN HOME without fear of prosecution?

what makes you think people dont know the difference, I am against both, i repeat, where in the right to bear arms do you find the right to possess a handgun in your own home without fear of prosecution

Let me know how that golf club and your threatening voice works if you ever are unfortunate enough to be the victim of a home invasion.
