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

Better to Have it and Not Need it...

A young Palmview, Texas woman is now glad that her husband insisted on getting a handgun, and also insisted on her learning how to use it:
She told us she heard a man banging loudly on her front door while another walked around to the back.

"I'm a young woman, I'm pregnant, I'm home alone. I'm not going to answer the door - I mean, I know better," said Alex.

Alex said her husband had just left 20 minutes before. Immediately, she knew something wasn't right and made the split decision to grab her husband's handgun.

"By myself with 911 on one hand and the gun on the other and I'm just a nervous wreck. I don't know what to do ...I yelled and I told the 911 'Oh my gosh, he broke in!'"

Alex said she's never felt comfortable with the idea of using a gun.

Still, her husband insisted on showing her how to use one just a few months ago.

"Nervous...It took me a very long time to pull the trigger and he said, 'when you're in a situation like that- you're not going to think twice,'" recalled Alex.

She said that exactly what happened.

It could have ended very badly.  It did not, because she had a gun and was willing to use it.  I wonder what Piers Morgan would have to say to her.  (Not really.)
