DisarmThemObama. Nonsense. It is precisely to prevent the majority of the people from taking undo advantage of the minority that we have a republic rather than a democracy. Of course the government can be oppressive beyond what 'we' deem fit. All you need do is consider how fearful you would be of a Republican President/Congress having the same powers you are comfortable granting to a Democrat. I am not being ideological here Addison. never grant the government authority you would not want it to have when the opposition is in power. That is what the Constitution is all about.

What is the essence of freedom? Property and a gun.

I never met my grandfather, but that's the lesson I took from his life. He was one generation out of slavery and bought property and guns.

It's so predictable that today's discussion on gun control is similar to the noise we hear from liberals every time there is a mass shooting. What is new this time is that the NRA, under the direction of Wayne LaPierre, David Keene and Asa Hutchinson, has put forth a concrete plan that most American parents should appreciate will keep children safer at school.
