We're being victimized by elected officials

“A level playing field.” How many times have we heard this coming from the Obama administration? There's nothing level about a playing field where our elected officials have the best retirement that taxpayer money can buy, when they're exempt from Obamacare and have the finest health care our money can buy, and have made themselves exempt from some of the same laws that we must abide by.

Now these lawmakers are considering limiting our access to certain weapons. This limitation will apply only to those who abide by the law. The drug dealers, street gangs and other criminals won't abide by any such law, making the rest of us vulnerable. If I'm allowed only a double-barreled shotgun, as Joe Biden suggested, then I'm at the mercy of the outlaws with assault rifles, machine guns (as the street gangs have) and high-capacity magazines. What's level about that playing field?
