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

0 for 7

Well, I've been attending the Gun Blogger Rendezvous since its inception.  The first year the top prize at the Saturday night raffle was a pistol - a High Point 9mm.  Each year since the prizes have gotten better and better - more guns, more neat swag.  I even gave away a gun at the 2009 GBR.

But I've never won one.

I'd hoped that last year would end my dry streak.  Bea had donated a Ruger Blackhawk that she said she wanted me to win, but it was not to be.  Molly Smith took home the certificate for that one.

This year, Ruger Engineering Johnson donated a .45LC Vaquero I really wanted.

My nemesis took it once again.  (Meddling kids!)  And she's sponsored by Smith & Wesson!

Oh well, I guess winning a gun will be a once-in-a-lifetime event for me.

Buth there's always next year.

(Typos corrected.  I was in a hurry and typing on my EeePC keyboard.  Sue me.)
