But don't hold them to that.
Can you say 'abuse of authority'?
I knew you could.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley appears to have used his executive power
to get the personal emails of citizens with hunting licenses in order to
push gun control. The second-term Democrat is using the information in
an attempt to divide gun owners to build support for his extremist
legislation to abridge Second Amendment rights.
Just a few quotes from the enemy:
"If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for
an outright ban, picking up every one of them... 'Mr. and Mrs. America,
turn 'em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here."
U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) CBS-TV's "60 Minutes," 2/5/95
"Banning guns is an idea whose time has come."
U.S. Senator Joseph Biden, 11/18/93, Associated Press interview
"Yes, I'm for an outright ban (on handguns)."
Pete Shields, Chairman emeritus, Handgun Control, Inc., during a 60 Minutes
"We must be able to arrest people before they commit crimes. By registering guns and knowing who has them we can do that. If they have guns they are pretty likely to commit a crime."
Vermont State Senator Mary Ann Carlson
"I am one who believes that as a first step, the
United States should move expeditiously to disarm the civilian
population, other than police and security officers, of all handguns,
pistols, and revolvers... No one should have the right to anonymous ownership or use of a gun."
Professor Dean Morris, Director of Law Enforcement Assistance Administration, stated to the U.S. Congress
feel very strongly about it [the Brady Bill]. I think - I also
associate myself with the other remarks of the Attorney General. I think it's the beginning. It's not the end of the process by any means."
William J. Clinton, 8/11/93
"The Brady Bill is the minimum step Congress should take...we need much stricter gun control, and eventually should bar the ownership of handguns, except in a few cases."
U.S. Representative William Clay, quoted in the St. Louis Post Dispatch on May 6,
"I don't believe gun owners have rights."

Totally unrelated to anything political, Shermlock had a link to this video(probably NSFW a lot of places)
which reminded me of something: ever see The 7 Faces of Dr. Lao? I think I was about twelve when I saw it, and this scene, well, made an impression
I wasn't sure what it was about Barbara Eden in this, but I liked it.
I still do, for that matter.
