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

Well, Looks Like New Jersey Will Be Disarmed Soon

According to, New Jersey passed a "Personalized Handgun" law last year:
After a 90-minute debate, the New Jersey State Assembly passed the Childproof Handgun Bill, which calls for stricter controls on firearms, the Montclair Times reported Nov. 21. (2002)


The bill calls for all guns to be equipped with technology that only permits the weapon to be fired by the owner, once such technology becomes available.

Smart-Gun Deal Cut

An agreement between an Australian gunmaker and a U.S. university paves the way for the manufacturing of smart guns, the Associated Press reported Aug. 30.

The agreement between gunmaker Metal Storm Ltd. and the New Jersey Institute of Technology will combine Metal Storm's electronic handgun with the institute's "dynamic grip-recognition" technology to create a firearm that can only be fired by its owner.

"It is a very robust system that can work in all kinds of extreme conditions, left or right hand, whether you are wearing gloves or not, and even whether you are in muddy or wet conditions," said Ian Gillespie, Metal Storm's Australian general manager. "It can also be programmed for multiple users if required."

Donald H. Sebastian, vice president for research and development at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, said the gun would meet standards set under the New Jersey smart-gun laws passed last year.
Well, there you go! No more new handguns in New Jersey! Now, the question is does the law really call for "ALL guns" to be so equipped, or merely all new guns?

And are the police exempt from having to use this incredible technology that will keep them from being shot with their own weapons?
