  • Quotes of Note…

    "Anyone who clings to the historically untrue--and thoroughly immoral-- doctrine that 'violence never solves anything' I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The Ghost of Hitler could referee, and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more disputes in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms." -Robert Heinlein

2nd Amendment under attack again, it seems…

Posted by emeraldgryphon on Wednesday, 14 February 2007

Via the Instapundit

Apparently the House has introduced a renewal of the original ugly gun law.  H.R. 1022 (text of bill not yet available) has been introduced by Rep Carolyn McCarthy, D-NY .   For what it’s worth, thanks large to all the repubs who decided to ‘teach the party a lesson’ on leaving limited gov’t behind.  This is the kind of crap a Democrat-led congress puts out. I guess that means its time to find it in the budget to pick up a few more assault rifles for the house.  (and don’t forget the high-capacity magazines!)

Really, i don’t expect this to fly too far this session, but watch out if the Dems get a larger hold on congress and/or (gods forbid) the presidency in 2009.

 Lots to think about….. more on this later.

    Imagine what could happen if a RHINO such as Rudy wins the Republican ticket. It would be the same thing as a DemonRat winning the office. I hope the NRA is watching all this.

  2. Thats true to a point, wytammic, but GWB already stated (back in 2004) that he would sign the AWB if the congress renewed it. They didn’t then, but if they do now? I can’t be confident that he would veto it.
