“Hi there–I wanted to know if you or any of your ‘conservative’ peers at

“Is it all about John Kerry and gay marriage with you people? Do any of you
even own a gun or have an opinion on why the Second Amendment exists?
“Do any of you care?

who wouldn’t really mind a renewal of the AWB or any other ‘reasonable gun
“Sorry for all the ’scare quotes.’
Can you field this one, Jonah? I’m just heading out for a facial.
