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

"26 filing cabinets of gun control data"

"26 filing cabinets of gun control data"

This site will bear watching: Extranos Alley. From this post:
My friends and I have examined every American gun control law, and every law that permits, allows, encourages, or requires citizens to own guns. All 22,309 of them. On the way, we gathered 26 four drawer filing cabinets of information on crime reporting, crime statistics based on crime reporting, and a host of other things. At the end, I intend to bring it all together and explain why I describe gun control advocates in just two words and a prefix. Pro crime activists.
And this post:
I have mentioned digitizing my files on guns and gun controls. It's going to take a while. Weighing the papers in what we decided was a typical file drawer, it seems there are seven reams per drawer, more or less. There are 104 drawers, total, so I probably have 400,000 or so pages to scan. Many of those pages are "duplex" printed on front and back. And then there are the many newspaper clippings. At 500 pages on a good day, none on a bad one, it's going to take a while.
I'd imagine. But what a treasure-trove! I look forward to it. And if he's willing to index it all and burn it to DVDs, I'd probably be willing to buy a copy when he's done.
