US to sue California over gun database
Who can tell the difference between Onion stories and reality any more? Segregationist Ashcroft, lounging about with too much free time on his hands (if he could only find something worthwhile to do in these peaceful times) is threatening to ... well, let me just quote directly:
The U.S. Department of Justice has threatened to criminally prosecute California's top firearms official over the state's continued use of a federal databank to hunt down illegal gun users, The Chronicle has learned.To their credit, California officials are staring down Ashcroft, shouting back "bring it on!"
I have this fantasy where California, Oregon and Washington (and perhaps Brittish Columbia) all break off and create the new progressive nation of Pacifica. But where would that leave New England and the Great Lakes states? Abandoning those poor souls would be too cruel.Posted February 28, 2003 01:40 PM | Comments (47)
