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 Was Interesting

THIS Was Interesting

National Public Radio's Weekend America show tomorrow will have a segment I wanted to listen to. Here's the blurb for it that I received via email this morning:
In This Week's Show, We...

... Shoot a Gun.
Weekend America Correspondent Sean Cole is terrified of guns. The only thing that scares him more than guns is the idea of falling asleep with one beside him. This weekend, Sean goes to the shooting range for the first time.
Actually, he went some time ago, but the segment airs this weekend. But there's more to it than that. At their website, this is the blurb:
This weekend in Manchester, N.H., you can shoot a machine gun for $25. If you don't have your own, you can rent one. And actually you can do that any day of the week in Manchester. Weekend America's Sean Cole was recently invited up to one of those ranges by his friend Nick, who called the trip a "man-cation." Unfortunately, Sean is what was referred to on the playground as a "girl."
The New Hampshire shoot is a machine gun shoot to benefit the New Hampshire GOP. Very anti-PC. Twenty-five dollars lets you shoot an Uzi. I wonder if Mark Steyn will be attending?

The Sean Cole story is currently available as streaming RealMedia here.

Cole didn't react like Emily Yoffe did, though I am not surprised. This is the second piece on guns and shooting (that I'm aware of) that Weekend America has done. The last one was surprisingly positive. This one was surprisingly not negative.

And Heller wasn't mentioned once.
