The USCCB--"Mentoring" Mayor Tom

The USCCB (or, perhaps, the Hive infesting the offices built at Catholic expense) has opinions on everything, including handguns.

We support the development of a coherent national handgun control policy that includes: a several day cooling-off period between the sale and possession; a ban on "Saturday Night Specials"; the registration of handguns; the licensing of handgun owners; and more effective controls regulating the manufacture, sale and importation of handguns. We recognize, however, that these individual steps will not completely eliminate the abuse of handguns. We believe that only prohibition of the importation, manufacture, sale, possession and use of handguns (with reasonable exceptions made for the police military, security guards and pistol clubs where guns would be kept on the premises under secure conditions) will provide a comprehensive response to handgun violence.

Good luck with that, fellas.

Let's have some fun with them. Instead of dropping a check into the annual USCCB appeal, drop a box of .45 ammo, instead.

Yes, it will make it much easier for criminals to target, rob, maim, and murder innocent civilians and they won't have to worry about getting shot by some evil civilian daring to protect his property, family, or life.

Because, you know, the laws against handguns stopped the thugs from murdering the Miller exec a few weeks ago; or murdering 5 women in Tinley park; or how the "gun-free zones" at schools and colleges deterred maniacs from taking lives.

Sometimes I wonder what's in the water at the USCCB headquarters.

Isn't prohibiting handguns what Hitler did before he took over?

An armed populace is the biggest threat to a corrupt government.

The answer to your question is: yes.

Yes, I agree.
