... "... Because apparently, all imaginable campus defense situations involve active mass shooters, and besides, the cops train themselves when encountering a firefight to make no distinction between aggressor and defender, but instead to just kill ‘em all and let God sort ‘em out."

"'At night, Petit sleeps only because the pills make him sleep. Sometimes even with the pills he lies awake, thinking about the same questions. Working slowly and without rest, he has built ramparts around his mind to keep out the what-ifs, because the what-ifs can drive you insane. What if that bulkhead lock had been working properly? Sometimes the haunting questions break through and he has to shake them away.' And that’s it for 'what-ifs' from the Esquire feature on the Petit family massacre. Yes, well, what if the magazine had addressed the central question for millions of Americans. Which is . . ."

"Say the word 'militia' in polite company these days, and you're apt to draw looks that would seem more appropriate for someone who was extolling the virtues of cannibalism. That's because the term, held in such esteem by the Founding Fathers that it was considered necessary to the security of a free state, has by now been hijacked, in the perception of much of the public, into meaning 'hate-filled, bigoted armed mob.'" ...

"I’m a gun guy. I’m not just a supporter of the Second Amendment, but I’m a guy who loves guns and loves shooting. I’ve shot competitions and shot for fun. Just this past Saturday, I shot so much my trigger was almost to hot to touch. It’s the only reason I left the range. For some, this is a sign of some kind of mental disorder. In reality, it just means I understand a few things that the anti-gun crowd just doesn’t grasp." ...

"The Czechs are pretty well known for their firearms designs. With the CZ-75 as the poster child for their firearms industry; it’s pretty safe to say they know what they’re doing over there in the land of the Slavs. After all these years of playing around with their various versions of firearm preeminence I oft wondered, why don’t they have a machine gun? Well, this humble scribe wasn’t doing his research because it turns out they do, and it’s a monster." ...

"Last December, I brought you the story of noted fantasy and mystery writer Joel Rosenberg who, in addition to his work ion fiction, had pursued a lifelong effort in support of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution, specifically as a firearms safety instructor and activist. His actions and beliefs occasionally created friction among those who knew him as well as with local law enforcement, as is evidenced by the headline of our story from last year: 'Joel Rosenberg Arrested.'"

"One of Minnesota’s heroes of personal liberty, a man who was a good friend to me when I needed him, unexpectedly passed away last night from complications arising from a heart attack the day before. Joel Rosenberg literally wrote the book on concealed carry — in fact, he wrote several of them. To call Joel a key figure in the effort to get must-issue carry permit legislation passed in Minnesota is underestimating his importance to the cause." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order. — Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942. (Source: "Hitler's Table-Talk at the Fuehrer's Headquarters 1941-1942", Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951).)
