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

Now That's Service!

I received my M1 Carbine from the CMP a couple of weeks ago, and I noted then that the serial number on the Certificate of Authenticity didn't seem right to me. According to the information I could find, the serial number the CMP thought the rifle carried would have made the receiver a Saginaw, but it (and the barrel) were clearly marked "IBM CORP." So I fired off an email noting that I thought they'd misread the second digit of the S/N as a "6" rather than an "8", where the "8" would have made it a 1943 production IBM unit.

I just received a new receipt and a new Certificate of Authenticity in the mail with the correct serial number. That's pretty good service!
