Any questions?

August 23, 2012

“It is clear from the words of the founders of this country that the right to ‘keep and bear arms’ is an inviolable personal right. They protected this right by the Second Amendment to the federal constitution and by provisions of the constitutions of the states. This is a subject for debate only by those ignorant of our history, or those that purposely wish to deny us our rights and, ultimately, to subjugate us under the tyranny of government perverted from its constitutional foundations.” – George Mason, Father of the Bill of Rights

“We find it perplexing that there are people who do not realize that a right may be neither granted nor withdrawn by the State. If the Bill of Rights were repealed, the right to keep and bear arms would still exist, since it was to defend that right that the Constitution was established. (See the Declaration of Independence.) Thus the state may destroy me, but it may not rescind my right to self-defense. This all seems pretty clear, but frequently I find people who do not understand it.” – Jeff Cooper

Why isn’t this front page news?

August 8, 2012

From the Columbus Dispatch

AURORA, COLO. —The psychiatrist who treated suspected movie-theater shooter James Holmes contacted a University of Colorado police officer to express concerns about Holmes’ behavior several weeks before the rampage, ABC News reported, citing unnamed sources.

The sources did not know what the officer approached by Dr. Lynne Fenton did with the information she passed along, ABC said in a report late Monday on its website.

Under Colorado law, a psychiatrist can legally breach a pledge of confidentiality with a patient after becoming aware of a serious and imminent threat that the patient might cause harm to others, ABC said. Psychiatrists also can breach confidentiality if a court has ordered them to do so.

University spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery declined to comment on what, if anything, the university police officer might have done with information provided by Fenton.

So, the gun laws worked exactly the way they were supposed to the liberals demanded (he was legally permitted to purchase firearms)…the psychiatrist did what she was supposed to do, with plenty of time to spare, but a public employee, sworn to protect the safety of citizens, did nothing and people died.

And of course the cries from the left immediately after the shooting, all the way up the chain, were for more reviews of existing laws (read more gun control).

The government apparatus dropped the ball on this one.  That doesn’t give anyone the right to use this tragedy as a call to further infringe my rights.

Slippery Slope Much?

Next step for body scanners could be trains, boats, metro

The next step in tightened security could be on U.S. public transportation, trains and boats.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says terrorists will continue to look for U.S. vulnerabilities, making tighter security standards necessary.

“[Terrorists] are going to continue to probe the system and try to find a way through,” Napolitano said in an interview that aired Monday night on "Charlie Rose."

“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?”

One of these days the talking will be over and the citizens of the United States will decide whether or not to remain free.

"They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759.
