    Thank you for telling me. How could I have been unaware of this important occasion? This is definitely a national holiday-quality historical event. We could declare it “Gun Nut Day” and all the gun crazed could shoot each other without fear of retribution. We could have arenas dedicated to the event … televise them, make billions and rerun them endless forever. Live slaughter on teebee!! Holy moly!
