    From an Aug 1992 LA Times piece:

    U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is catching hell for his attendance at the raunchy Tailhook convention.

    Not the raunchy 1991 convention, but the raunchy 1987 convention. In the current political climate, there is no statute of limitations on raunchiness.

    McCain's woes started with a reference in a recent Newsweek magazine to a 1987 issue of Hook, the house organ of the San Diego-based Tailhook Assn.

    Hook reported that McCain, a former Navy fighter pilot, was "no stranger to Tailhook reunions" and had "participated in the camaraderie of the third deck" at the 1987 convention in Las Vegas, where supposedly much friskiness took place.

    Just google Johnny, guy's a carpet bagger who married into AZ liquor distributor money...

    US servicemen, raunchy? Gee, who woulda thunk it possible?
    If at first you don't succeed, give up.
    Anything that can't be done easily, probably isn't worth doing.

    I get that you are not personally calling for gun bans. However, I think it is worth pointing out to the antis that the time when serious restrictions were possible has come and gone. There are so many firearms in circulation right now....in responsible hands....that gun bans that have been implemented elsewhere are effectively impossible here. I grew up in NY state and the SAFE act has not been complied with in a state with a history of tolerating excessively restrictive gun laws.

    I just hope we never get to a place where someone is actually dumb enough to try implementing a ban because things would probably get UGLY.
