Star laments (in her last sentence) that we again must defend our liberty. The only reason we have to again defend is that the elected officials, bureaucrats and police no longer fear us. The various gun control laws being drafted in D.C. and in many state legislatures (actually passed in NY) are clear violations of the oath of office taken by public servants and as such these folks are guilty of an executable offense. And until we start killing them, they will continue to endanger our lives. We do not need to rise up as a mob; if an official in your state has committed such an offense (and their vote is evidence enough), quietly and covertly put a bullet in their brain pan.
