In the wake of last week's unimaginably horrific murder of innocents in CT, you'd have to be an unfeeling robot not to think, "something must be done to stop this." But in the true Chicago-thug spirit of "Never let a crisis go to waste", the Left is using it to try & push yet another plank of their agenda - one that would have done nothing to prevent such tragedies.

No "assault rifles", (whatever they are), were used in this heinous crime & preventing law-abiding citizens from defending themselves would remove the only possibility that someone might be able to mitigate any future ones. The police can't be everywhere & we wouldn't want them to be in a free society. Unfortunately, there will always be sick bastards amongst us & evil murderers will ignore any restrictions they might pass. You have to ask yourself if, God forbid, someone broke into your house & threatened the lives of your children, would you want to be able to save them or wait for the police to come & draw the chalk outlines around their bodies?

Here is a link to many of the statistics involving the relationship between gun restrictions & violent crime. As you might imagine, the more restrictive the laws that, by definition, only law-abiding citizens obey, the greater license it gives to violent criminals who know it's less likely they'll face any resistance. Here is a link to scores of incidents where people & children were able to use legal weapons to successfully defend themselves from such evil doers.

But the worst has to be the president's invoking these murdered innocents not just to promote gun control - but as the reason why the GOP should "take off their partisan war paint" and raise taxes, increase spending & give him unlimited borrowing powers. It says a lot, (in fact frighteningly too much), about this president that he would enthusiastically use the blood of innocents for yet another selfish political power grab. The children of Sandy Hook did not die to promote Socialism.

"Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and given him triumphal processions.

Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the "new wonderful good society" which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean "more money, more ease, more security, and more living fatly at the expense of the industrious".

- Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC)


"It does not take a majority to prevail - but an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

-- Samuel Adams

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

-- Ronald Reagan

"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened".

-- Norman Thomas
Socialist Candidate for President of the United States 1944
