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

Mea Culpa

Oh sweet jebus.

In my previous post on the AJC's screed, I said, in response to the AJC's claim that "the gun industry has...spun the myth" that semi-automatic rifles are "the best guarantee of personal safety": "Hardly, and anybody who knows guns knows better."

Well, apparently not everybody.

This guy believes it.

"Probably the optimum gun for the defense of a home is the civilian version of the military M-l6 (e.g. Colt AR 15 Sporter, ArmaLite AR-10, others)."


He makes some reasoned arguments, but they hardly convince me.

(But then, he's a lawyer.)

I vote for the handgun and the pump shotgun. I'm not at all enamored of the idea of firing a rifle indoors, and I have neighbors who might object to the result of a miss from one.

Score one for the AJC, though.
