Quote of the Day

Posted by Lissa on March 3, 2010

Citizen access to firearms has reduced crime rates time and again, but this is more than a matter of practicality. It’s a question of principle. The people of an orderly nation surrender the business of vengeance to the government, replacing it with the rule of law. They cannot be expected to surrender the right of defense. The right to protect yourself, and your family, from injury and death is an essential part of your dignity as a free man or woman. Without the First Amendment, you are a slave. Without the Second, you are a child.

(BTW, the author does not own a firearm, which does not keep him from supporting the right to do so.  That describes many of my readers!)

    The author must be some crazy tea-bagging wingnut or something. We should send the welcome wagon around! 😉
