What Needs to be Done

Now it is time for this:

Great Job South Carolina

"The Brady Campaign has long accused South Carolina of having weak guns laws as well. In the organization's 2008 state scorecards, released this week, South Carolina earned just nine points out of a total of 100."[link]

Excellent job down there South Carolina. 9 out of 100 on the Brady Scale is near perfect. The only fault I have is not allowing reciprocity of other states CCW licenses. Other than that keep up the good work. You still have a little way to go, KY is darn near perfect with a score of 2 out of 100.[Brady Campaign State rankings page, just a heads up in case you don't even want to go there, link] And Deo Vindice my friends!

Scrap This Useless Firearm Regulation

"Since the implementation of this program in 2001, this program has cost New York State taxpayers approximately $30 million with no results. Example: 212,080 firearms have been entered into the database with only two matching hits found. Neither of these hits resulted in arrest."[link]

Let's see a little calculation here... that comes out to .000009% of every firearm entered coming up a match and a 0% chance of an arrest. That seems like an excellent expenditure of $30million to me. Wouldn't you all agree?

Corzine the Idiot

"He said a federal assault-weapons ban was needed to complement New Jersey's restrictions. A national ban "in theory" would have blocked Brian Hinkel from amassing such a large arsenal at his Franklin Township home, Corzine said."[link]

Don't you like the "in theory" part. I really enjoy that. It never ceases to amaze me that these people do not understand the answer is not more laws, but clean up the confusing clutter we already have, and have true "common sense gun laws". Of course my definition of common sense gun laws are far from what a gun-grabbers definition is. My definition would be to allow any law abiding citizen who has never been convicted of a violent crime to be able to own, purchase, carry, shoot, sell, etc... whatever they want to. Then enforce strictly the law for any violent offender caught in possession and/or attempted possession, or anyone who uses a firearm in a violent crime. This would be true "common sense" gun laws.

Quote for the Day

"Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage, and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty - and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies. It is, indeed, only the exceptional man who can even stand it. The average man doesn't want to be free. He simply wants to be safe ... What the average man wants in this world is the simplest and most ignominious sort of peace - the peace of a trusty in a humane penitentiary, of a hog in a comfortable sty." -- H.L. Mencken
