Quote Of The Week

Screen shot 2014-06-30 at 9.31.31 AM
“It is both illogical and inconsistent for a government to say people have a right to life and a right to self-defense but no right to own the tools necessary to defend their lives. It is illogical for a government that says its police have no obligation to provide individual protection to deny people the means to protect themselves. It is immoral for a government that repeatedly releases predators to prey on people to tell those victims they cannot have a weapon for self-defense. It’s stupid for a government that can’t control criminals, drugs or illegal immigrants to claim it can take guns away from criminals only if honest folks will give up theirs. Gun-control proposals are also an insult. Gun control by definition affects only honest people. When a politician tells you he wants to forbid you from owning a firearm or force you to get a license, he is telling you he doesn’t trust you. That’s an insult. The government trusted me with a M-48 tank and assorted small arms when it claimed to have need of my services. It trusts common Americans with all kinds of arms when it wants them to go kill foreigners somewhere—usually for the financial benefit of some corporations. But when the men and women take off their uniforms and return to their homes and assume responsibility for their own and their families’ safety, suddenly the politicians don’t trust them to own a gun. This is pure elitism. … Gun control is not about guns or crime. It is about an elite that fears and despises the common people.”

    Reblogged this on Dead Citizen's Rights Society.

  2. I always enjoyed reading Charlie Reese….spot on as usual.

  3. Power is the ability to kill the non-compliant.

    I think that the author is quite wrong … there is nothing illogical or stupid about gun-control. It makes perfect sense, if you wish to wield power over others.

  4. Gun control is a prerequisite for genocide. Act accordingly.

  5. I don’t give a shit if they trust me or not, I’m keeping them.

  6. The anti-gun plebs show their support for gun control by writing editorials, posting their opinions on social media sites, and having an overall circle-jerk with their like minded wastes of carbon.

    The pro-gunners support the 2nd Amendment by buying more firearms and ammo.

    I wonder who has more leverage in this fight…..

    The above, while entertainingly heartening, will only cause the cult & its Imperium/non-Imperium allies to attempt something even more ‘newsworthy’ to regain their power. Desperation’s a powerful spur & these, people, are in it to the end regardless of the consequences.
