Dear gun controllers of America,
Every one of you learned the libertarian non-aggression principle in Kindergarten. What happened to you?

The world of political correctness is a fantasyland in which mature-appearing adult human beings insist on pretending that words and the realities to which they refer are the same thing so they can remain cloistered little children forever.

Well, I would like to live in Ireland and even with the bad economy, give it a go, however I'm not sure just how bad it is.
I don't require a lot to be happy. A small town, good fishing, perhaps hunting (optional), quiet green cool hills to relax and read good books, good neighbors, a nice supporting job of repairing or perhaps a little shop on the main street in town to sell goods and talk with the people. All without permission from a government to do so.

The Libertarian News Examiner has confirmed that longtime libertarian rights activist Julian Heicklen fled the United States on May 22 for Israel where he was granted political asylum and Israeli citizenship.
Responding to an inquiry from the Libertarian News Examiner, Heicklen said, "I decided to leave the US on January 1, 2012, when Obama signed the NDAA of 2012, which gave him the authority to arrest and detain indefinitely any person without charges or a trial."

In an article about soaring gun sales MSNBC explained why Americans are buying guns in record numbers this way:
"Many point to fears stoked by gun-rights advocates that President Barack Obama, if elected to a second term, will push legislation to rein in gun ownership."
Notice the typical collectivist groupthink in that sentence. People don't buy guns after thinking about it; they rush to buy guns because their fears were "stoked by gun-rights advocates."

"The US government really wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. They’re mad at him for releasing video of the military’s murder of civilians in Iraq and more recently a list of sensitive diplomatic cables too long to get into here. A grand jury has been empaneled in Alexandria, VA to consider criminal charges against Assange. He may never be extradited to the US for trial, but what if he is?"

For fifty years generations of what we know as the Freedom Movement have struggled to obtain the blessings of liberty, affirming our inherent rights, and living in peace. How much progress has there been? As someone who has volunteered and donated take our survey.

Medlock said his daughter was at her mother's house when Ozark police Officer Dustin Bradshaw shocked her in the back with a Taser and arrested her.
"If you can't pick the kid up and take her to your car, handcuff her, then I don't think you need to be an officer," Medlock said.
"He had no other choice. He had to get the child under control," said Ozark police Chief Jim Noggle.
Ozark police said it is their policy to use a Taser on someone who is a threat to others, no matter their age.

"The threat of 'private nukes' is non-existent, and would be so even in the absence of laws forbidding them. Anyone who pulls out the 'private nukes' argument in favor of 'gun control' -- or the continued existence of the state -- is, by doing so, confessing that they're all out of real arguments and grasping at straws."

Madame Speaker, I rise to introduce two pieces of legislation restoring the First Amendment rights of consumers to receive truthful information regarding the benefits of foods and dietary supplements. The first bill, the Health Freedom Restoration Act, codifies the First Amendment by ending the Food and Drug Administration (FDA)’s efforts to censor truthful health claims. The second bill, the Freedom of Health Speech Act, codifies the First and Fifth Amendment by requiring the Federal Trade Commission’s (FTC) to prove that health claims are false before it takes action to stop manufactures and marketers from making the claims.

Government has been mismanaging medical care for more than 45 years; for every problem it has created it has responded by exponentially expanding the role of government.

On April 15, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer dipped his pen in gun oil and signed the "Exempt Montana-made firearms and ammunition from commerce clause" bill into law.
The legislation, better known as the Montana Firearms Freedom Act (MFFA), goes into effect on October 1.
What the new law says, once the text has been disinfected of legalspeak, is that all firearms, firearm related accessories and ammo that are produced, sold and retained within the boundaries of Big Sky Country are not subject to the Constitution's interstate commerce clause.

An incident happened in Yazoo County, Mississippi, that makes gun control advocates wet their dark gray suit pants.
A 14-year-old girl got on a school bus and "pulled out a chrome-plated .380-caliber semi-automatic handgun and began shouting and threatening the other students." (Jackson Clarion-Ledger)
But this isn't what loosens the urethral sphincters of firearm phobics. These sorts of episodes happen all the time, everywhere, which is fine because the more it happens the more funds get funneled into the fingers of antigun groups from supporter's dues and donations and taxpayer-subsidized liberal legislative largesse.
What precipitated the precipitation in the pants was what happened next.
Quarterback and defensive end Kaleb Eulls of the Yazoo County High School Panthers, sleeping on the bus, was woken by one of his three sisters. He walked purposefully up the isle of the bus toward the girl while confidently repeating, "drop the gun" several times, then tackled her, rode her to the floorboards and took the gun away.

I've chosen, in a world where there's never enough time and energy, is to focus on the one political issue which most clearly and unmistakably demonstrates what any politician—or political philosophy—is made of, right down to the creamy liquid center.
Make no mistake: all politicians—even those ostensibly on the side of guns and gun ownership—hate the issue and anyone, like me, who insists on bringing it up. They hate it because it's an X-ray machine. It's a Vulcan mind-meld. It's the ultimate test to which any politician—or political philosophy—can be put.
If a politician isn't perfectly comfortable with the idea of his average constituent, any man, woman, or responsible child, walking into a hardware store and paying cash—for any rifle, shotgun, handgun, machinegun, anything—without producing ID or signing one scrap of paper, he isn't your friend no matter what he tells you.
