what laws do

There are laws against murder.  People are still murdered every day. 

There are laws against exceeding the speed limit.  People still speed every day. 

There are even laws against serving alcohol at bingo games.  … Well, I got nothin’ on that one, actually. 

The point of all of this is to observe, and hopefully educate, that laws do not stop crime.  They cannot.  They have not.  They will not. 

Ever.

all i am going to say

Do not expect much of a post from me about the shooting at the school in Newtown, CT last Friday; I, for one, do not believe in using the blood of victims as a fuel to further my political goals, unlike your average "gun control" fetishist. My thoughts and prayers are unquestionably with the families of those killed in this horrific crime, though, and if you do want something to read, you should read this. […]

3. I should do this because it is the right thing to do.

I am, of course, grossly oversimplifying the theory, […]

quote of the day – amballtrip

Through various graphical representations (inspired and created by a fellow pro-rights advocate), we firearm owners have been attempting to express to the public as a whole how irrational "gun control" is given its purported goals – if "gun control" supporters (otherwise known as anti-rights cultists ‘round these parts) really wanted to reduce the criminal use of firearms, why are their proposals largely things that will not significantly impact criminals, but will detrimentally impact the tens […]

quotes of the day – oleg and tam

I have been saying things like this for about as long as I have been weblogging, but, as usual, throw a pretty girl into the equation and the comments suddenly become that much more attention-grabbing… At any rate, Oleg Volk wins today’s first quote of the day by way of the afore-linked graphic, quoted below:

Collective Responsibility is a Totalitarian concept.

I will not be held responsible for misdeeds committed by people who look like […]
