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

Not Intending to Leave Anyone Out...

My post immediately below was my list - in order - of the first ten sites I visit every day. It's hardly the only ten sites, and here's an excellent example of others I frequent. I read SayUncle and Publicola regularly, too - two more "gun bloggers" (there are a lot of us!) Well, via SayUncle I find this post by Nicki over at Publicola's site. It seems that a British reporter is a bit incensed that Nicki (who posts newslinks on is irate that his stories are being used to illustrate the fact that British gun control is a dismal failure, and has threatened legal action if that practice is not stopped.

Guess he doesn't understand the concept of a free press.

Go read the links. Amusing and sad at the same time.

It would seem that Greg Truscot suffers from the same cognitive dissonance I described in my post below. Obviously he's one convinced that weapons are the cause of violence, and if they just try harder at banning them, they'll all be safer.
