Quote of the Day

"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood."
-- James Madison

Mr. Madison made this statement in the late 1700s. What would he think if he saw the tens of thousands of firearms laws currently on the books. Or worse, today's U.S. tax code?
