"'The nutty notion that a citizen can be heavily enough armed to fight off the government went up in smoke near Big Bear Lake,' George Skelton opines at latimes.com. 'This may sound crazy to most normal people, but there are some obsessed gun owners — although a minority, surely — who believe they need to arm themselves to perhaps combat government oppression.' Skelton proceeds to quote readers’ emails to paint gun owners as deranged right wing racists and proto-terrorists. Which doesn’t really matter because they’ve already lost the argument over the Second Amendment, apparently . . ." ...

Never mind that The Land of Hope and Glory has the highest violent crime rate in Europe, far higher than the U.S. Never mind that Britain’s subjects are not citizens. That the North Sea islanders don’t have the right to silence or, for that matter, a written constitution protecting any of their natural or God-given rights.

"Politics is the art of the possible and this is one possibility the President and his supporters just can’t let happen. Debbie Halvorson’s a Dem and avid past Obama supporter running for Jessie Jackson, Jr.’s House seat in the gun-free utopia of Chicago (500+ murders in 2012). She’s a former state senator and was a congresscritter for Illinois’ 11th from ’09 to ’11. But despite her past support for the President, there’s a fly in this Mrs. Smith Goes Back to Washington story. Halvorson’s pro-2A and carries an NRA A rating. And she’s said in no uncertain terms that she opposes an assault weapons ban and magazine capacity limits because they won’t do a damned thing to reduce crime. ..." ...

"'Here’s what you do with guns…you federalize all gun crimes, number one. You take it out of the local jurisdiction and state and you federalize it, right? So therefore if you’re caught in a gun crime holding up a 7-11, you get a mandatory 10 years if you’re convicted in a federal pen, on top of whatever Slurpee you stole…The second thing you do is, if you buy a gun, you have to register the gun ..." ...
