How will the "gun grabbers" respond to this act? Try and closet it under 2nd amendment which they want to eliminate ??

If someone was to attack me with a bat I would hope it would be a player from the Cubs. I wouldn't have to worry about getting hit. Maybe I would grab the bat and hit the balls over the fence.
