If the innocent honest Man must quietly quit all he has for Peace sake, to him who will lay violent hands upon it, I desire it may be considered what kind of Peace there will be in the World, which consists only in Violence and Rapine; and which is to be maintained only for the benefit of Robbers and Oppressors.

Responsible gun ownership
Our great nation has a rich history of fostering responsible gun ownership. We pledge to continue doing our part to ensure that our rights are never infringed upon.
On this day is history: Eugene Stoner discovered that putting a pistol grip on a small-caliber rifle made it so deadly it was suitable only for use on the battlefield. Military experts now agree that if the M1 Garand had had a pistol grip, the U.S. would have won World War II.
Guns are our friends
Guns are our friends because in a country without guns, I’m what’s known as ‘prey.’ All females are.
How to ensure your freedom
A people who mean to be free must be prepared to meet danger in person, and not rely upon the fallacious protection of armies.
On assault weapons and hate speech
Assault weapons laws resemble hate speech laws. Hate speech laws usually begin by targeting a few words that almost no one approves. Once the system for controlling and punishing “hate speech” is put into place, there is little or nothing to stop it from expanding to punish more and more types of everyday speech. Similarly, once an assault weapons law is on the books, there is little to prevent politicians from vastly increasing the number of weapons banned under the law. The main effect of banning assault weapons is to give government an excuse to arrest and imprison millions of Americans while doing little or nothing to reduce crime. America has a limited number of police, and politicians must decide who the real public enemies are. If Mr. Clinton signs an assault weapons ban, it could signal the start of an attack on gun owners’ constitutional rights that could far surpass all previous gun bans.
Freedom is precarious
What happens after a people are disarmed? They become compliant and obedient. Just ask people who lived in Chile under Pinochet, or those who are currently living in Egypt, or the people who have lived under any other regime that the U.S. national-security establishment has installed or supported. They will tell you why a disarmed citizenry meekly and passively complies with any and all orders issued by a regime’s national-security establishment, including orders to submit to arbitrary arrest, indefinite detention, torture, rape, or execution.Continue reading “Freedom is precarious”
The great object is, that every man be armed.
Master and servant
Laws disarming honest citizens proclaim that the government is the master, not the servant, of the people.
Violence by proxy
If you believe it reprehensible to possess the means and will to use lethal force to repel a criminal assault, how can you call upon another to do so for you?
