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

Reasoned Discourse and The Other Side

Reasoned Discourse© and The Other Side™

There's been some discussion around the gunblogosphere recently about the typical Reasoned Discourse we experience with the gun-control side of the argument, but Xavier has found a video of someone who truly put her beliefs to the test. (In associated news, Morgan Spurlock is not, apparently, a complete wanker.) As Xavier put it:
Got 42 minutes and 32 seconds?
It's worth your time if you're any kind of activist at all.

My favorite part? Seeing the difference between the activist's first shot (with a shotgun) and her later emotions when she was learning to fire a handgun.
