Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Here's an Interesting Quote from a Law Enforcement Officer

From the Rockford Register Star, (Rockford, Illinois)
Cache of weapons found at residence

ROCKTON — A man who shot at the owner of a pizzeria because his pizza was delivered late Sunday was housing a small arsenal.

Police seized 45 handguns, 21 rifles, several hundred rounds of ammunition, a bulletproof vest, two black ski masks and suspected narcotics from Robert Moye’s home Wednesday night.
Yeah, even I would call that a small "arsenal." But that's not the money quote. Read on.
The Winnebago County state’s attorney office issued a warrant Thursday for Moye’s arrest, and the Rockton Police Department displayed the impressive haul of mostly military-style assault weapons.

“In 22 years of law enforcement, this is the largest amount of weapons I’ve been involved with,” Rockton Police Chief Steve Dickson said.

Representatives from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the Drug Enforcement Administration and an Illinois State Police crime lab technician helped catalog the weapons.

“Very few of these weapons have hunting applications,” said Rockton police officer Ron Dippel, eyeing an Air-15, similar to the military’s M-16 assault rifle. “Home defense. That’s the only reason for having weapons like that.”
Holy s&!t Batman! A COP said that?!?
“The bulletproof vest is particularly disturbing,” Dickson said. “They’re supposed to be hard to get.”

Moye, 45, of 901 Armstrong Ave., owner of Goldie’s Tattoo & Body Piercing parlors in Rockford and Lake Geneva, Wis., was first arrested on a charge of unlawful discharge of a firearm late Sunday for allegedly shooting at Sam’s Pizza owner Tony Pipitone and his cook, Santiago Rivera.

Moye bonded out of jail early Monday. He turned himself in again Thursday night and faces a charge of unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon.

His new bond was set at $200,000.
Now, this is ILLINOIS, where in order to purchase a gun or ammo you have to have a FIREARM OWNER ID CARD, and this guy is apparently a FELON who has acquired 45 handguns and 21 rifles.

Boy, that Illinois gun control really works, doesn't it?

Just about as well as the Chicago handgun ban.

But I can't get over that even cops are now saying (and newspapers reporting!) that military-style semi-auto's are "Home defense" rifles!
