That infamous movie line is the latest battle cry (ok, in this case it's more like whining) coming from the Massachusetts Legislature, whose state motto is, ironically enough, "By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty."
Apparently swords are acceptable, but BB Guns are out of the question.
In their endless attempts to save you from yourselves, those "socially conscious" folks have decided to "make New England an area free of pellet guns and BB guns," complete with a buy back program for those who dared to own such an evil product.
(Yes, I'm serious.)
The Fast Squirrel has the details as part his new blog series, which can be found under the very appropriate title: "Consequences."
And if you have plans to visit this "fair"state in the future, don't even THINK ABOUT licking a flagpole in December!
