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

This site was last updated May 27, 2005. Although Join Together's gun violence project has ended, we encourage those interested in the issue to visit the action center and national directory to locate national, state and local organizations working on this important issue. Former subscribers to Join Together's email news service on gun violence prevention may be interested in similar services from the Freedom States Alliance.

Michael Barnes is leaving the Brady Campaign because of continuous legal setbacks, the Million Moms are losing chapters for lack of interest, Jointogether has ended its "gun violence project," next thing you know, the Violence Policy Center will be shutting its doors!

(Well, one can hope.)

I can't help but wonder if Jointogether's decision to end its gun violence project had any relation to these two stories on their archived page,

Nonprofits Cry Foul Over Government Scrutiny


IRS Reports Widespread Tax Abuse among Nonprofits

Y'think? I do have to wonder if the VPC has anything to fear from an audit...
