a little linkin' while I'm thinkin'

My friend TBolt has a good piece on the what-ifs of a federal ban on concealed carry. Worth a read.

( & while you're at it, take a look at this cool new thing from Google, too. They're hosting millions of photos from the Life magazine archive.)

Call me paranoid, but I believe the true purpose of such a ban is to increase crime. This will then be used as a call for more gun control.

If such a law does pass, I will abide by it and simply open carry everywhere it is legal for me to do so.

BTW, my word verification was "kilit."

I think it’s considered chic to refer to “Godwin’s Law” if comparisons to Hitler are made, and that is intended to show how just ridiculous such a comparison is, thereby taking it off the table.

But, that dude forecast, in his own writings, just what he was going to do, long before he actually did it.

Barry’s made his positions clear a long time ago.

As with his predecessor, people simply couldn’t accept that he was serious, that he actually meant it.

They probably still wont accept it, even while he does it. After all, he is practically worshiped as the leader of a revealed religion.

Perhaps, Jim Jones would be a better comparison.

(UPDATE - After posting this on another blog, with that line above, I just learned that someone named Jim Jones is on Obama’s short list for National Security Advisor. You just can't make this stuff up.)
