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 Guy has Testicular Fortitude

THIS Guy has Testicular Fortitude

Forget the guy in the beach chair. I just received this via email:
Dear Friend of Gun Rights,

I wish I could rejoice in the recent Supreme Court ruling. I can't.

The fact is, in many ways, it is bad news for gun owners and gun rights.

The Supreme Court's Heller decision wasn't even an hour old before anti-gun activists began revealing exactly what they had been plotting for months.

As Nancy Pelosi said regarding the Supreme Court's decision, "they left a lot of room to run . . ."

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter, a member of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun coalition, said the Supreme Court's decision "is an explicit statement of support" for their gun control efforts.

My friend, we are about to see a tsunami of anti-gun activism.

That's why it's vital you act TODAY! Support us at

You see, while the U.S. Supreme Court did strike down Washington, D.C.'s gun ban (and maybe Chicago's) they gave the GREEN LIGHT to virtually every other anti-gun regulation, licensing scheme and restriction on the books.

Justice Scalia writing for the 5-4 majority said, "nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on [restricted persons] ... or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in [restricted places] ... or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms."

And it gets worse. And that's only five of nine judges.

Don't be misled. That's what anti-gunners count on.

Even as I write you, Nancy Pelosi, Michael Bloomberg and their anti-gun pals at the federal, state and local levels are preparing a torrent of new and sweeping gun control legislation.

So those who have been running around claiming the Supreme Court's decision will ultimately lead to Second Amendment utopia are DEAD WRONG.

Among other things, all the following anti-gun laws are A-OK according to the Supreme Court:

*** Mandatory licensing to purchase firearms;

*** Bans on the open and concealed-carry of firearms;

*** Bans on private sales of firearms;

*** Bans of so-called assault weapons and other "unusual" weapons (that's the actual language Scalia uses);

*** Bans on firearms on government property;

*** Bans on certain calibers of ammunition;

*** Bans on high-powered hunting scopes;

*** One-month waiting periods;

*** One-gun-a-month schemes;

*** Mandatory ammunition fingerprinting.

That's why your help today is so vital.

You see, the gun-grabbers have been raising millions of dollars for months, hoping for a Court decision they could "work with." And they got it.

While so many folks on our side are being distracted by a national press claiming "PRO-GUN FORCES WIN," anti-gun forces are ready to use the Court's decision to take even MORE Second Amendment freedoms away from you and me.

And with millionaire Hollywood honchos and billionaires like New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg on their side, I'm afraid they have all the money they need to do it, too.

And don't think Bloomberg and his gun control pals will stop short of TOTAL gun bans!

By the time any newly-passed gun control scheme makes its way back to the Supreme Court, every current Justice could be retired or DEAD!

That's why your help is needed IMMEDIATELY.

By turning up the heat on politicians now -- especially in this critical election year -- you and I will send the clear message to the politicians that they MUST oppose any new gun control scheme or pay the price at the polls.

That's the only real way to get politicians to listen.

So please agree to act TODAY, visit our website at

The National Association for Gun Rights is set to expand the following three-part program to capitalize on the Supreme Court's decision:

>>> Phase 1 -- Recruit 325,000 new National Association for Gun Rights members in key areas across the country that will be most vulnerable to the gun-grabbers' schemes;

>>> Phase 2 -- Work with pro-gun legislators and the media to put the anti-gunners on the defensive and expose their lies and manipulations;

>>> Phase 3 -- Launch a full-scale direct mail, internet and phone blitz targeted at Second Amendment supporters in key areas to create a grassroots wildfire in favor of our full gun rights.

But none of this can happen without your financial support.

As I told you, the national gun control crowd has been raising millions and planning for this exact scenario for months.

They could launch a full-scale assault on our gun rights at the federal, state, and local level within just a few weeks.

What will stop them is the grassroots efforts of pro-gun folks like you -- folks who realize the Supreme Court's Heller decision does NOT stop gun control.

But this effort will not be cheap, and that's why I must ask for your financial support, as well.

Will you agree to a special one-time contribution of $1,000?

Perhaps you can afford more.

Believe me, I know that's a lot to ask, but I can hardly overestimate just how important this fight is.

If $1,000 is not possible, I hope you'll agree to make a contribution of $500, $100 or at least $50.

Visit TODAY and support our efforts.

The Supreme Court has ruled. Battle lines are being drawn.

The knock-down, drag-out, tooth-and-nail fights against the gun-grabbers begins immediately.

I hope I can count on you in our corner.

Your IMMEDIATE help is crucial. Please act TODAY! Go to


Dudley Brown
Executive Director

P.S. While the U.S. Supreme Court did strike down Washington, D.C.'s gun ban, they gave a GREEN LIGHT to virtually every other gun control law imaginable. Too many pro-gun folks just don't understand what is about to happen.

Emboldened by the Court's decision blessing their efforts, gun control zealots like Michael Bloomberg and Nancy Pelosi are preparing to launch an all-out assault on our gun rights.

They are counting on us to go to sleep and not notice what happens. That is exactly what I and everyone else at your National Association for Gun Rights REFUSES to do.

So please help the National Association for Gun Rights fight back with a special, one-time contribution of $1,000 (or even more if you can afford it), $500, $100 or at least $50 -- whatever you can afford --TODAY! Go to
Wait, wait... I'm supposed to believe Dudley Brown over, oh, say David Hardy or Alan Korwin? Or my own reading of the decision?

Who the hell is The National Association for Gun Rights? Yes, the battle is not over, it's just begun, but St. Peter on a pogo stick, some group I've never heard of begging for $1,000 because Heller didn't go FAR enough?

Sorry, Dudley. My money will go where I think it will do the most good.
