Jeff Elkins: "MSNBC, in its documentary The .50-caliber militia has been kind enough to reveal the true nature of one of the state’s most noxious congresspersons: Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA)... Waxman wants to reclassify all .50 caliber rifles as either destructive devices or Class III weapons, thus making them effectively unavailable to commoners. Actually, what Waxman really wants is to take away all your guns… so he can enslave you – or kill you."

"Handguns are inherently dangerous." -- Opinion of the 'San Jose Mercury News'

"That is the gist of a licensing bill, AB35, sponsored by Assemblyman Kevin Shelley (D-San Francisco), and its companion Senate bill, SB52. It would treat handguns for what they are: inherently dangerous consumer products."

NV SB172 Allows Multiple Concealed Weapons To Permit Holders

The (Nevada) Assembly on Monday approved 32-8 a bill to let those with concealed weapons permits carry as many guns as they want.

Assembly Minority Leader Lynn Hettrick (R-Gardnerville), contended that only law-abiding citizens will secure the permits to carry multiple concealed weapons. He maintained they have a constitutional right to have those weapons. Criminals will do as they wish, regardless of any law, he said. "A deranged person never will be stopped by a piece of paper," said Assemblyman Bernie Anderson (D-Sparks).

Assemblyman Morse Arberry (D-N.LasVegas), spoke against Senate Bill 172, saying it would lead to black men being shot by police. Arberry said police "aren't going to ask for papers" or concealed weapons permits when they see young black men with five guns.

One of the world's leading advocates for non-violent conflict resolution told students it would be "reasonable for you to shoot back with your own gun" if someone were trying to kill you.

The Pope has said the same thing.

Why don't American "liberals" (certainly not liberty advocates) get it?

Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers, No. 46
