Keep Your Dirty Ape Hands Off My Beer!
by L. Neil Smith
It says here, that the Food and Drug administration, not content merely to murder countless individuals every year by denying them medicines whose manufacturers haven't jumped through all the expensive bureaucratic hoops, has now decided to go after that substance which Benjamin Franklin said is "proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy". Beer.

Meanwhile, Down at the Gun Confiscation...
A work of fiction by Paul Bonneau
...Old John was standing in line with his shotgun, on the first day of the mandatory turn-in. He looked at the others, all with sad or disgusted expressions, much like his own. He would also grimace in pain once in a while, the cancer finally finishing up on him soon. The damn government made it difficult to get morphine to help relieve his suffering. Obamacare was a joke. "Government," he thought, "always ready to lend a helping hand."

The Enemies List
by Jim Davidson
There's always a great deal of irony being emitted by Washington, DC. And it seems exceptionally ironic that people who were killed by the error of going into a gun-free zone and not carrying essential tools for self-defence, who were killed by criminals willing to break laws, are being honoured by the flying of a flag that, since at least the 1840s has symbolised aggressive war, violent conquest, the destruction of liberty, and mass murder, at the order of the president, the head mass murderer in charge.

An "Edict" of My Own, From Flyover Country
by L. Neil Smith
Dannel P. Malloy, Democrat Governor of Connecticut is a criminal. This is not merely an opinion, it is a fact: a criminal, I recall, from Criminology 101 in college, a thousand years ago, is anyone who violates a written statute. The one Malloy is violating is the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, the highest law of the land. Q.E.D.: Dannel P. Malloy is a criminal.

Mr. A.X. Perez sent us this quotation for the quote of the day, which we hereby quote:

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.

Can it be supposed that those who have the courage to violate the most sacred laws of humanity, the most important of the code, will respect the less important and arbitrary ones, which can be violated with ease and impunity, and which, if strictly obeyed, would put an end to personal liberty... and subject innocent persons to all the vexations that the guilty alone ought to suffer?

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. They ought to be designated as laws not preventive but fearful of crimes, produced by the tumultuous impression of a few isolated facts, and not by thoughtful consideration of the inconveniences and advantages of a universal decree.
—Cesare Beccaria (1735-1794), Dei delitti e delle pene,
[On Crimes and Punishments] ch.38 (1764)

Mr. John Walker writes:

Islam and Political Freedom
by John Walker

There have been a number of contentious discussions about admitting refugees from the conflicts in the Muslim world, the immigration of Muslims in general, and admitting Muslim visitors, students, and guest workers on temporary visas. An undercurrent in many of these discussions is whether Islam (whether defined by religion, culture, or the majority religion of country of origin) is in some way incompatible with individual liberty and political freedom as defined in the West.

I decided to crunch some numbers on this.

And Mr. A.X. Perez again notes:


Remember Operation Fast and Furious?

Remember how the Obama Administration facilitated the smuggling of 2500 or so semiautomatic rifles to the narcotraficantes in Mexico? Remember that this was done just to see at which crime scenes they would turn up?

Remember how Mr. Obama's BATFE helped smuggle guns into a nation with gun laws much stricter that in the US?
Remember how Mr. Obama acting with Ms. Clinton's advice provided fund nd weapons to "moderate Syrian Rebels" who turned them over to ISIL?
So now Mr. Obama and his supporters want to ban semiautomatic rifles and large capacity magazines to civilians in the US for the purpose f keeping these out of the hands of terrorists. Because the only place terrorists can get their weapons is the neighborhood gun shop.

What am I missing here?
