Quote of the Day – Sebastian (3/19/2013)

The passage of SAFE in New York, the bills currently in Congress, and Colorado should be a wakeup call that they will pass whatever they can get away with. Gun control must go the way of the temperance movement.

[I couldn’t agree more.  It disturbs me no end that people are bitching about Google Glass and the dangers posed while walking around with their smart phone.  Yet at the same time they turn around and say we should throw more money and technology at something like this and then say with a straight face it could never be used for evil.

Yeah tell me, how many houses were robbed thanks to the database of gun owners created by that New York newspaper?  Tell me, how many houses will be robbed by the state when the state legalizes the theft of a particular piece of property by members of the state?  How many people will be killed in that process and in the aftermath as they try and create their “utopia”.  Thanks but no thanks, I’ve seen this movie before.   -B]

    Yep, distractions while the real ‘stuff’ goes on in the back rooms… And more freedoms go away!

    Careful what you use as an example. The Temperance Movement is still very much with us. I maintain that the 18th amendment is was never “repealed” but that it was merely modified. Out of that modification came the BATF– government entities largely took over the role of the Prohibition era gangs, such that THEY get a piece of the action and THEY protect their turf rather than the free-lance gangsters. Try selling your own liquor without all the special licensing, taxation and inspections, see what happens, and then tell me the Temperance Movement is dead.
