“I’m pleased to work with Senator Boxer on this bill, which creates a new grant program to encourage states to allow family members and others to seek court orders to temporarily prohibit dangerous individuals from possessing a firearm. The bill would allow those who know the most about the condition of someone who poses a risk of committing violence to take steps to remove firearms from that individual’s possession.”

I love my brother. This late in the game, I’m not going to get any more brothers. I can live with what I did.

When you go to tinkering around with the mighty engine of justice, you just might get your hand caught in the fan blade.
