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

Quote of the Day - Canadian Perspective

This was in my inbox when I returned from lunch today:

I found your blog earlier today by accident, and have enjoyed the ensuing perusal. I wanted to add a smidgen of perspective to your already-comprehensive discussions.

I am Canadian, a long-time shooter, and a student of history. I have extensive knowledge of the anti-gun machinations of my own government, beginning with the FAC program incept in 1978.

During the implementation process of our gun control measures, the plan was at every step argued against by well-reasoned, rational, calm, logical and effortlessly sensible persons who took great pains to carefully explain why further gun control measures were worthless and most certainly would not achieve the results being sold to the general public as their justification.

It eventually dawned on me, as I watched the government repeatedly ignore these eminently commonsensical explanations and forge ahead with complete disregard for logic, that the whole thing wasn't about what was logical or rational. It was about what the government wanted to do. End of story.

I determined then that when governments do things that make no sense and fly in the face of logic that even an utter simpleton could comprehend, it does not mean that senses have been taken complete leave of. It simply means that there are portions of the operative agenda that you have not, for whatever reason, been made privy to.

Gun control is not, and never has been, about what is logical or reasonable. It is far worse than that, because what remains after removing those two as potential justifiers, must be the truth.......

Yours Most Respectfully,

...and I would've gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for those meddling kids...
Hear, hear for us meddling kids!
