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

Another Incident You Won't See in England

A man attempted to rob a bank yesterday in Spokane, Washington. "Attempted" being the operative word.

Instead of getting away with the cash, he was jumped by the customers in another "pack not a herd" action:

A customer hit the robber and took him to the floor. Customers took his gun, and he was held until police arrived. He was taken to an area hospital for treatment and examination, and is under arrest by Spokane Police.
Unsurprisingly, the robber had a long record - twelve previous convictions, and he was a registered sex offender.

Would this be "Thirteenth strike, and you're OUT!"?

(As an aside, this was the ONLY reference to this story found on Google. Guess the other media outlets are waiting for the Spokane Police Dept. spokesman to release a statement advising the sheep citizenry not to attempt anything similar since we're not qualified.)

Want to reduce crime? FIGHT BACK!
