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

No, I Am NOT Surprised.- More "Guns for Me But Not For Thee"

Joel Rosenberg is on top of it again . (h/t to Instapundit)

Seems the gun control crowd just can't seem to understand that to be ideologically consistent, they themselves shouldn't possess guns. At especially not illegally modified ones. And they certainly shouldn't carry out vigilante attacks with guns:
Well, we had Million Mom March organizer, spokeswoman and activist Barbara Graham gunning down a man in an attempt to avenge the murder of her son (she shot the wrong guy, and crippled him). And then we had antigun activist Annette "Flirty" Stevens keeping an unlicensed handgun, with the serial (number) filed off, in her home -- along with some narcotics.

And now we've got antigun activist Sheila Eccleston calling the police about a burglary next door, and encouraging them to make it quick because she had a sawed-off shotgun in her home, one that she admits had been there for six months.

I think some of these folks are unclear on a lot of concepts.
Ayup. That they are.

Of course she was just "waiting to hand it in," she says.

For six months. Awaiting a gun turn-in amnesty, she says.

I wonder how long she'd have continued to wait?

Speaking of hypocrisy, there's also Diane Feinstein, who has (or at least had) a CCW - one of damned few issued to a resident of San Francisco. And Carl Rowan, gun control activist and newspaper columnist who shot a kid who had jumped his fence and used his pool, and who defended his actions by arguing that "he had the right to use whatever means necessary to protect himself and his family." He did, but apparently nobody else does? This is the same Carl Rowan who is quoted as saying:
There aren't any embarrassing questions -- only embarrassing answers.
I guess he would know.

Hoist on their own petard, so to speak.
