... "The editors of The Toledo Blade recommend fear-driven inaction against and compliance with evil. Because there are no 100% guarantees and something could go wrong. In the future."

FULL TEXT BELOW:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has committed, apparently, to a UN small arms Treaty. An international treaty, if ratified, would over-ride the Second Amendment's constitutional guarantee of the individual right to own and bear arms.

Gun Owners of America, the National Rifle Association, and Mensa Gun Owners will fight Senate ratification of any UN Treaty that threatens the Second Amendment.

The Founders foresaw that a well-armed citizenry would be the ultimate guarantee of freedom. It may not be enough but it is too precious to surrender.

"A tax holiday can boost a state's economy and perhaps help people make badly-needed purchases."

"More energy efficient appliances? Those can help people cut their utility costs and at the same time help the environment, as well as give retailers a boost. West Virginia occasionally drops the sales tax on those items."

"Dropping the tax for a period in the late summer before school resumes? West Virginia has done that, too, to help residents cope with the added costs of getting clothing and supplies for their kids before classes start."

"Now, the state might add another tax holiday, this time for the purchase of guns. After all, surveys show that only 55 to 60 percent of West Virginians own guns." ...

"This statement is a talented use of fear-mongering and racism. ..." ...
