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

I'm Gobsmacked - in a GOOD Way


Arizona's House of Representatives voted today, 36-19, to allow permitless "Vermont" concealed carry. The Senate passed the bill on March 29, 20-10. Jan Brewer, our Republican governor who took office when Janet Napolitano was elevated to Secretary of Homeland Security, is running for election, and running hard.

I think she'll sign it.

I'm shocked. Arizona will probably become the third "Vermont Carry" state in the nation at the end of July.

Like Alaska, Arizona will still offer permits that allow reciprocity with other states, and our recent "guns in restaurants" legislation requires anyone who carries into a restaurant that serves alcohol to be a permit holder. The AP reports that more than 154,000 permits are currently on issue in the state. Our population is about 6.6 million, so about 2.3% of us have permits, which is about par for the course among the states with "shall issue" laws.
