In statehouses across the country, though, the N.R.A. and other gun-rights groups have beaten back legislation mandating the surrender of firearms in domestic violence situations. They argue that gun ownership, as a fundamental constitutional right, should not be stripped away for anything less serious than a felony conviction — and certainly not, as an N.R.A. lobbyist in Washington State put it to legislators, for the “mere issuance of court orders.”Because goodness knows, the most mentally stable person in the world is the guy who gets a restraining order -- surely that fellow needs a gun to exercise their rage.

Then I'm just pimp-slapping, and that is immoral."
