Guns Don't Kill People, Terrorists Kill People 

...with the guns we sell them.

I know that mentioning regulating the gun industry at any level at any time is one of the seven deadly sins punishable by 24 hours of forced viewing of E! and/or death by being tossed into the Pit of the Sarlac.

Indeed, I've been somewhat swayed to the side of a more spirited defense of the 2nd Amendment. There's something about having people in power who frighten you for an extended period of time that will make you reconsider that whole "armed populace" thing. Plus, it's harder to argue for a strong Bill of Rights while completely ignoring one of the amendments.

That said, don't you think it might be a good idea if we didn't, you know, provide guns to the enemy within our borders?

Now I have a problem with the whole terrorist watch-list thing and a lot of the Big Brother-type shit that's going on in the name of the War on Terror. But if we're going to have these lists, don't you think that gun stores might be a good place to use them?
