SF no longer under gun ban: http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2006/06/12/MNGQ9JCVC15.DTL

A comment by user crayonbeam illustrates the whole thing wery well:
I've always liked this rewording:

A well regulated library, being necessary to the education of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books, shall not be infringed.

I read that and I can't find anything in there to indicate that people should not be allowed to keep books in their own homes and outside of a government-sponsored library.
As a bibliophile as well as a hoplophile, I like the simile. Books in many ways are more dangerous - they contain different ideas, persuasive words, and information on how to create weapons - from flint knives to massive explosives.

If some folk didn't consider books to be dangerous, why would they ban them. Anyone remember Farenheit 451?

Now you've done it - I have to change the icon I'm using to my 451 icon.
