Somebody needs to publish a list of the Right's predictions during the campaign that have come true. Throughout the campaign, people sounded warnings about Obama and his agenda, and they were soundly ridiculed as paranoid racist fools. It'd be interesting to see an analysis of how many of those warnings have proven true, and how many of the rebuttals have been exposed as smokescreen.
Personally I hope he continues to break promises as I found his agenda distasteful. So far he has left the 2nd amendment out of the equation, however, no one expected that to be first on his list. Let's hope he continues on this path of leaving us alone.
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
