This Is What Being Made My Bitch Looks Like

Anyone want to call this clown and find out if he'd defend someone on firearm charges?

My reply:

It's not surprising to read an editorial comment that decries criminal use of "automatic weapons," which have been strictly federally controlled, effectively banned, since 1934. It's not surprising to see them conflated with tragedies like VA Tech, which involved common pistols (and a ball bat would have served as well, with our cultural victim mentality). It's not surprising to see the tired old idiocy that our Founders never foresaw "automatic weapons" when they wrote the Second Amendment, even though rapid firing and automatic guns did exist in the era of flintlocks.

What is surprising is to see such blatant misunderstanding from Robert Hammerle, an alleged attorney. I've always understood that attorneys follow a code of ethics and professionalism and research the subject before making statements, so as not to make errors that would lose them a case in seconds once rebutted.

In counter, I'd like to suggest a five day waiting period on publication, while the government background checks facts for accuracy, after which time Mr Hammerle can spout off in a paper he prints with lead type and distributed on horseback, just as our Founders intended.
