In PA Gun Case a Judge’s Opinion is Just That. An Opinion.

By Bob Rogers | GUNPROPLUS.COM  February 21, 2017 — A lawyer’s greatest wish is planting a three-word winning thought – “In my opinion….” – into the mind of a judge just before the judge rules on a case.

CA – Gun News – Loophole Lets Criminals Buy Untraceable ‘Ghost Guns’ On-line

NBC NEWS.COM February 9, 2017 – A legal loophole means that anyone, including criminals, can order a so-called “ghost gun” off the web without a background check – a gun with no serial number that can’t be traced.

NJ.COM December 26, 2016 – While everyone was busy flogging the Legislature last week for trying to champion Gov. Christie’s profitable and vengeful self-interests, lawmakers did something to prevent the mailman and the pizza delivery kid from brandishing Glocks. The governor had unilaterally changed state gun regulations by expanding the types of people who could carry firearms in public in April, after his handpicked commission decided that the “justifiable need” standard…
