Quote for the Day

"Nowadays, for the sake of the advantage which is to be gained from the public revenues and from office, men want to be always in office." -- Aristotle

Cowering in Fear = Safe to Some

"A six-hour lockdown prompted by a fatal shooting near a Virginia campus was lifted as police continued a search for the gunman.

In a series of phone calls, e-mails and text messages, students were being warned that the university was on lockdown.

Police searched buildings on the sprawling campus of 7,500 students for the gunman, but at 3 a.m. students received a message stating the lockdown had been lifted and the campus was safe." [link]

Well as safe as you can be I guess if you are not allowed to arm yourself for your own personal defense. But this is what these people want. They do not like personal liberties, personal responsibility, and an ability to fend for oneself. They prefer to have all the power over each and everyone of us. They don't care if that gets innocents killed, because they can always then blame someone or something else and "make things better".

Canada Looks at Ending Gun Control

"The federal government introduced a bill in the Senate on Wednesday to abolish the long-gun registry.

"It's totally inefficient and ineffective against crime," Public Safety Minister Peter Van Loan, told reporters on Parliament Hill." [link]

"For years now researchers at places like the American CDC, for instance, have found absolutely no evidence to suggest that gun control is at all tied to reductions in crime rates. Gun control isn’t about safety or crime. It’s about, well, control." [link]

Well it seems that our northern neighbors (at least a few of them) are starting to get it. Wonder how long it will take for the rest of America to understand as well.
