For all their dysfunction, the Republican Senate and House have managed to act with lightning speed in striking down a sensible Obama administration rule designed to stop people with severe mental problems from buying guns.

And how right you are, O Congress! The 2nd Amendment by its very Words and Original Intent perforce applies to homicidal maniacs such as Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa may be.
None can cite one jot or tittle of the Constitutional excluding homicidal maniacs from the beneficent application of the 2nd Amendment.
What a piece of work is the 2nd Amendment! How noble in reason! In form how express and admirable! In action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god! The beauty of the world. The paragon of Words on Paper.
How blessed are we that Man is endowed with The 2nd Amendment, and with Mad Senator Grassley! We now have nowhere to go but Up Into The Heavens!
