I tend to agree, even though I personally do not own any guns, nor do I intend to. I do, however, get irked by a presumptuous government that deems it necessary to tell me what I can and can not own, particularly when gun ownership is pretty clearly permitted in the big document we are forced to read in 4th grade history class but the majority of us seem to forget before 5th grade starts. Furthermore, it seems to me the people who are most dangerous around guns are the people who know the least about them.
Which reminds me, if one more anti-gun zealot brings up the “you are more likely to hurt yourself with a gun than anyone else” to attack the self-defense reasoning for gun ownership, I am gonna have a minor aneurysm. No kidding folks. And guess what. You are less likely to accidentally electrocute yourself in the bathtub with a hair dryer if you do not own a hair dryer (or a bath tub for that matter- which may be plausible for some of the WTO hating crowd). Maybe there is more to their argument than that, but usually the drool and sanctimony gets so thick from these Handgun Control, Inc. fruits that I may miss the rest of their argument.
At any rate, even though I choose not to own one, I say “Lock and load, America!”, and just remember Ted Nugent’s sensible rules for gun safety. For the lazy, I will post them here:
1.) ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.
2.) NEVER POINT A WEAPON AT ANYTHING YOU’RE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.
That wasn’t too hard now, was it?

“If you were forced to live with the Clinton’s day in and day out, you’d throw yourself in traffic, too!” from Laura Ingraham.
Alrighty. Making progress. Added a hit counter and that tell-a-friend thing. It is kinda ugly (although I appreciate the service Bravenet), so I am not sure if it will last. If I can figure out how to modify the colors, I will. I will keep you posted.
The folks at The Libertarian Samizdata express some of my sentiments on the Euro far more succinctly that I have… All I managed to muster is I thought it was dumb and ugly. They agree, but they state it much more eloquently.
Everyone is talking about Cornell West and the Harvard Flap. CheckInstapundit, check the Economist, check all the other blogs. I refuse to talk about it. My stance is, and will be, that Cornell West is a Bleeding Idiot and should be ignored. Of course, by talking about him I have failed to follow my own advice.
National Review Online documents the death of the Kyoto Treaty now that Japan has deep-sixed it. In other treaty news, read this little story about the real losers in 2001, International Treaties. Both articles were written by Nick Schulz, editor of techcentralstation.com. In the aforementioned techcentralstation is this little piece about the dwindling popularity of the Kyoto Treaty. Ding dong, the witch is dead.
