Kentucky ranked 49th out of the 50 states

Darnit! We're just going to have to work harder here in the Bluegrass State to garner that top honor - the 50th worst gun laws of any state in the country.

The Brady Campaign considers that score a bad one.

I don't. I consider it an indication of a people who value individual freedom and the God-given right to defend oneself.

Actually, there was no 50th state ranking. We're tied with Oklahoma for 49th place.

Okay, that's one more think I love about Kentucky. One of their statements was "No state restriction on the sale or possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons. Assault weapons are as easy to buy as hunting rifles." I've yet to find anyone that can tell me the supposed difference between a semi-automatic "assault" rifle and a semi-automatic hunting rifle, except for the way it looks.

That's the leftist way, Fish. Feelings trump logic every time.

And it is indeed a great state. My nephew, a expert welder, buys kits from Centerfire Systems in Versailles and a few days later has himself another AK-47 or M-16 clone (semi-autos) to add to his H-U-G-E collection of that particular genre.

My brother bought the semi-auto version of the M-16 and asked his Marine son to show him how to dismantle it. The Marine took it apart so fast my brother had no clue as to what he'd done. He said, "now can you do it again slow enough I can see what you're doing?"

Well I think that is great and stay at 49. These kool-aid drinkers are out of control. Leave it to them we would all be wearing green, hugging trees, and eating lettuce only. You know come to think of it - perhaps it is a good thing that there are cars - can you imagine PETA if were still using horses and buggies to get around. Horse abuse I suppose. This is all so freaking nutz. We have the right to protect ourselves yet the constitution is ignored everyday by local law makers interjected thier personal bias of interpreting the law instead of just upholding it, which is their job to do only that.

I hope Kentucky can keep her status and not end up like the other PC states - politically nit picked.

Thankfully, Layla, common sense seems to prevail here in the Commonwealth or at least out here in the sticks.
