"Allow dangerous people to carry"??????????

People allowed by the state and approved by the
Feds to carry a weapon are "dangerous people" ???????? I think Helmke's mind set is what is dangerous.

Lois Capps also needs to be better informed.

This will be the first test for President-elect Obama to prove to gun owners that they have nothing to fear from his administration. When he reviews 'all eleventh-hour regulations' by the Bush administration as has been said he'll do, this is the first Second Amendment related one to be decided upon.

It will send out a clear message as to his true future intentions, and will either [temporarily] calm down the buying frenzy or send the frenzy into overdrive. Maybe he'll just wait 6 months and tie in the revocation of this rule change with some other change(s) after the masses aren't paying attention any longer.
