Correct. And look at all the other personal and local community responsibilities we've freely given to Uncle Sam. Pretty soon we'll all be fat dumb and happy peasants, with free food stamps for all, free health care for all, free cell phones for all, etc, etc. If we can get all we want for free, why would any of us need to protect ourselves from thieves, we and they can get the same stuff from our benevolent dictators. And once all of us are getting all that we want, there'll be no reason to rise up against our benefactors - so why would we want a gun?
Today I discovered an app called Glympse. I was able to follow my vendor, via his gps enabled cell phone, as he drove down the interstate to deliver a product to me. Anyone want to bet the NSA didn't also record his trip?

Here's and interesting report, by NPR no less. It turns out that gun related deaths have fallen substantially since 1993. They split the data into several categories. When they talk about homicides, this would not include those killed by police, or accidental shootings. What's interesting is that suicide accounts for over half. This group would probably use another method if guns weren't available. But the one thing that the anti gun crowd won't discuss is that, prior to the establishment of gun free zones, school shootings were almost unheard of.
I was in Savannah a couple of years ago and saw two guys ransacking a disabled car on the bypass in broad daylight, so I know what you mean. One carried off the radio while the other had a set of golf clubs from the trunk. But I doubt these guys vote at all - they just have the libs vote for them - multiple times if necessary - and spout society's culpability if they're caught.
Many restaurants also have bars, so allowing someone who is not drinking to carry protection in such a place, sounds reasonable to me. And what about the designated driver in a bar?
Paying for birth control via insurance is like having your car insurance pay to fill up your tank with gas.
Women are freaking out because now they'll have to pay $20/mo for birth control instead of a $15 co-pay - and since the insurance company won't have to process the claims, the premiums will be $10 less - for us men as well? $20-10= does anybody know the new common core math answer?

Congressional Approval at Record Low

The 7% who approve must be supporters of communist dictatorships. Still, it's amazing that these 7% would approve of a bunch of politicians drawing big salaries to do nothing. Then again, while they're doing nothing only the prez is finding ways to waste more money that we don't have on unconstitutional programs and regulations. Maybe congress is doing better than normal after all.

Dear Hillary: Run

The dem's know that the rep's will always run a me too progressive, and they know that the voters will do as Truman said, "Why vote for a dime store democrat when you can get the real thing?" Romney, McCain, Dole, Ford - a long line of RINO's to lose. Reagan won by running as a conservative, and won re-election by doing the same. HW won by promising to continue Reagan's agenda, then lost after he showed his true big government colors. W won by pretending to be a conservative, and only won a 2nd time as lesser of two evils. O has done such a bad job that many rep's may feel that Hillary would be a relief. C'mon rep party! When are you going to realize that more big government candidates will only lose, and the country will get to bankruptcy, moral and economic, even faster? We need to present a stark alternative for a change, a real conservative! The author listed a couple of good possibilities, but Jeb Bush is the best and brightest? Give me a break!
