I went Christmas shopping for my daughters Saturday morning. I Purchased a Springfield Armory competition 1911-A1 with all of the B's & W's for my youngest and a Mossberg 930 guard dog home defense shotgun for the oldest one. (she is recently married, nice addition to the household). After I passed the background check and paid I was informed that I would have to return to the store on Thursday to pick up the 1911. Waiting for the pistol is no biggie under the circumstances, but considering that I was allowed to leave with an 18 1/2", extended capacity, assault shotgun with rails and a laser sight, plus 10 boxes of ammo, struck me as a bit strange. If I had a bone to pick with someone I would consider myself MORE equipped for violence than i'd be with the 1911. I consider this as (1) an example of really stupid and ineffective gun legislation, (2) an "infringement" of a constitutional right that says in its very text "shall not be infringed" (3) something that makes me wonder just how stupid politicians can actually be. I could have walked out with a bull-pupped AR, Aug, AK or my pick of sawed off shotgun (which I did). I should have been able to walk out with the 1911 too. I'm definitely triggered and feel sick and alone. Please WR, rub some ointment on my pussy by enlightening me on how this law is for the greater good of our society and my sore twat is an overreaction to having my rights fucked with.
