Quote of the Day–Bowers v DeVito(02/08/2011)

The Constitution is a charter of negative liberties; it tells the state to let people alone; it does not require the federal government or the state to provide services, even so elementary a service as maintaining law and order. – Bowers v. DeVito

[Some would read the above and think of it as a bad thing.  I read the above and see freedom and liberty.  The reason I see freedom and liberty in the above is because both of those require personal responsibility.  I am personally responsible for my family and I’s safety, there is no one else to pass the buck on to.  As such the state has absolutely no business what so ever limiting or restricting my access to commonly used tools for this purpose.  -B]

H/T to Kevin.
