The worldwide terrorist activity directed from abroad against the United States has given birth to a Homeland Security Department to help fulfill one of the primary responsibilities of government — provide for the public safety.
But if we honor the charge in the Preamble of our Constitution to "ensure domestic tranquility," it is surely not beyond the purview of this new agency to direct some of its attention to the domestic terror resulting from the guns overflowing our streets. Imagine the enormous uproar if the 30 murders daily from domestic gunfire resulted from al Qaeda terrorism.

Again we see the ludicrous lie that the militia is the national guard, which was not formed for over 100 years after the Bill of Rights was adopted.
Why don't they ever quote George Mason, who said "I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials." Then he said "to disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." Not very ambiguous!
And this lame brained writer doesn't know much about the English language. The first clause in no way changes or mitigates the primary clause. "The moon is made of green cheese, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
Or as the point is sometime illustrated, (paraphrased)
"A well educated electorate being necessary for the advancement of a free nation, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infinged."
In this idiot's interpretation, only government educators could keep all types of "dangerous" books. Books containing that were deemed especially dangerous ideas could be banned for possession by common folk, they would have to be kept and explained by officially sanctioned educators.
If these idiots continue pushing their half of the nation (the sheeple half yearning to be protected only by Big Shepherd)in this direction, we are eventually going to have to settle this issue with a war. That's the basic premise of my novel.
I pray we can avoid that ... but these fools are so ignorant of history and the very meaning of liberty and freedom ... and they think they are so insulated from the consequences and results of their foolishness that they will run headlong into the brickwall because they never look up to see that one is there.
... as to the handlers that are using such useful idiots ... well, they too sorely underestimate the effectiveness of the 15 million hunting rifles.
These people can read. I've worked with enough of these cretins to know they deliberately play word games to avoid debating from a logical stand.
If gunowners were as uncivilized and vicious as they would like us to believe, or if just they alone believed it, they would be hiding out and keeping their mouths shut tight. They obviously feel safe enough to speak out. Therefore, whatever plans and designs they have which would seriously rile up the gunowners, haven't been clearly revealed.
Hope all is ell with you.
... it's good to be home in Idaho.
Is it me or did this village idiot Alex Gerber just shoot himself in the foot with that statement ? I believe the current state of the world advocates RKBA for exactly the same reason. Your'a'peeins and their handlers are still such a form of goobermint IMO.
Just my take on the matter....
What the he** is that supposed to mean? Would that be a good or bad thing overall? How many automobile accidents, drug overdoses, suicides, workplace accidents, cases of cancer or other diseases do these 'other Western industrialized societies' have?
...were it not for our disproportionately higher homicide rate, chiefly due to firearms."
Blah, blah, blah.....(sounds like a liberal, eh?).
The people who come up with this crap love to use emergency room stories to try and bolster their arguments. They never mention the fact that most emergency room visits in most communities are not a result of someone being shot.
"This aberration, brought into sharp focus by the recent spree of sniper shootings, suggests an urgent need to review our gun-control laws."
That's what it is. An aberration. In any society you have those nut jobs who cause trouble, but I'd rather live in a society where an individual has the right to protect themselves by whatever means necessary than rely on a joke of a government and their set of ever increasing useless and ineffective laws that only keep honest people honest.
Review, he**!!!! Repeal is the correct word here.
And if the ones that are categorized as 'children' (under 21?) who have been "a 'victim' of 'gun violence'" in these urban environments were correctly categorized as criminals (When do some of them join gangs nowadays, about 11 or 12?) the stats would definitely be different.
Big Media lies!
Truth cannot live on a diet of secrets, withering within entangled lies. Freedom cannot live on a diet of lies, surrendering to the veil of oppression. The human spirit cannot live on a diet of oppression, becoming subservient in the end to the will of evil. God, as truth incarnate, will not long let stand a world devoted to such evil. Therefore, let us have the truth and freedom our spirits require... or let us die seeking these things, for without them, we shall surely and justly perish in an evil world
I started to print this piece, then I realized that it would only be good for lining a bird cage or training a puppy where to do his business.
People like this moron don't get it and likely won't ever get it, until it's too late.
I do, however, like his suggestion about augmenting our firearms with mortars and rockets and such.
I'm still on the soap and ballot box but it seems that the RKBA is enroute to the jury box or it's equal at SCOTUS.
Lord help us all if it plays out to the ammo box.
