Douglas Evans writes:

People, this doesn't have anything to do with whether or not you think it should be legal it has to do with whether or not you believe the government has the right to use guns against non violent people for a plant. Put your own personal feelings aside and live by the founding principles of this country called freedom. If you don't like freedom then move to a different fucking country. So tired of cry babies sissies trying to make laws (aka government goons with guns) to prevent people from doing things they don't like.
