“The right to keep and bear arms is not conditional. It is based on sound, moral principles, which do not change with the weather or with any other circumstances as some would have us think.”

Tim at Gun Nuts Media has written a must read article. The Idiocy of “Outdated” discusses Michael Bloomberg’s idiotic comments about the Bill of Rights being outdated and needing to be rethought.
Go. Read. Now.
Jay gives us something to think about:
Right now, as I write this, the streets of Boston are empty. On a Friday afternoon – a beautiful day in the high 60s/low 70s – the city should be just filled with life; instead it looks like something out of a zombie apocalypse movie. Police officers in armored cars roam the streets with automatic weapons, and Blackhawk helicopters search overhead, all for a person suspected of an act of terrorism and the death of an MIT police officer.
And yet I cannot buy a new Glock or a standard capacity magazine.
If things are so dangerous out there that we need attack helicopters patrolling our skies, then I should be able to buy a 15-round magazine for my M&P, don’t you think? If one person – one person – is so dangerous that people are being told to stay in their houses, businesses are closed, posse comitatus has fallen by the wayside, etc. – how can anyone tell me I shouldn’t own an AR-15?
Go read the rest. Then think about what he is saying.
From Caleb at Gun Nuts Media:
Now, I’m no gun expert like Joe Biden, but it occurs to me that if a known terrorist who’d already displayed a willingness to shoot it out with the cops and use explosives was on the loose in my neighborhood, I’d probably want a little more defensive firepower than a double barreled shotgun. I might even want a rifle like what the police likely used to shoot at said terrorist with. But that’s crazy talk, right? Dianne Feinstein said there’s no reason for me to own a military style weapon, because we have cops and the military to protect from things like terrorists running around shooting up neighborhoods.
The situation in Boston presents an excellent teaching moment. When the emergency broadcast system comes on and tells you there’s a terrorist loose in your neighborhood, do you want to lock the doors and cower in fear hoping for the best, or would you rather lock the doors and go about your life as normal, knowing that you have a rifle and the skill to use it?
From Joe’s Quote of the Day – President Barack Obama post:
Yes. It was shameful that so many people put so much effort into attempting to infringe upon a specific enumerated right. This forced millions of other people to put their own effort into stopping that attempt. The entire country, especially the politicians, had important other things to do and we had to take time out to fight the statist scum.
