There's licenses for everything nowadays, from marriage, to adding a bathroom in YOUR house. Speeding tickets and speed limits make us "criminals" for going 66 in a 65 zone, even if nobody else is on the road. Motorcyclists and bicyclists get tickets and fines for not wearing a helmet, and then there's seatbelt laws... We've become a society of laws that force people's "good ideas" on everyone else, regardless of constitutional freedoms. Here, we'll discuss our freedoms and how to keep them.

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force;
like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master.
Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.

To all who cry "peace at all costs":
"NO WAR" you say? We tried that.
Fifty-five million people died.
It was called World War II.

Shooting at Virginia Tech

In a sick sense, it seems that my post on March 15th was simply a foreshadowing of what was to come. It was only a matter of time before some crazed nutjob went on a shooting rampage where there were no off duty police officers who randomly happened to be in the area. Unfortunately, it happened on April 16, 2007 on the campus of Virginia Tech.

At present count, at least 30 people were killed on Monday when a lunatic went through the campus of Virginia Tech with what I believe to be two pistols and a vest full of spare clips. He went first through the dorms, then to random classrooms, opening the door and murdering people, firing 30+ shots at a time into a room as students ducked for cover, then moving on. Eventually the rampage ended when the gunman killed himself, only after leaving 30+ people dead.

Unfortunately, unlike the recent rampages in Utah and Manhattan, there was no off-duty police officer with a gun nearby. And due to the highly restrictive laws on posession of a firearm on a school property or in a public building, there were no students with a gun in those rooms either. Do you know what that means? That means our "good willed" liberal friends bear a large part of the responsibility for the deaths of those 30+ students and faculty members, and the wounding of many more. But you'll never hear that on the news.

Just look at this typical liberal spouting off about guns in the classroom, in posession of an off-duty police officer no less. I bet Mr. Brandon Wilson is swallowing hard right now, except that he's so blinded that he doesn't see how a gun in the hands of HONEST citizens could have stopped this rampage cold.

The really stupid thing about this is, as the world reacts with horror they say "Oh those lax gun laws in the US caused this". Give me a freaking break. Oh, great idea, let's ban the guns, then nobody will have them (except all the criminals). If a person wants to get a gun, they will get a gun. They've been around since the 1600's. They can freaking MAKE a gun on their own if they wanted. It might not be highly accurate, but it'll work. What are you going to do next? Ban steel because people can machine it into a firing chamber? Oh, how about we ban bullets too!! Then we can ban brass so people can't form them into bullets. Oh, then we can ban Potassium Nitrate, so they can't make gunpowder!!! Not like people haven't been making that on their own for centuries...

This is all ridiculous. Liberals have been trying forever to explain away why supposedly "good" human beings do bad things, by saying it's not the person's fault, it's their environment (aka it's the gun's fault. Just like it's the spoon's fault that Rosie O'Donnell is fat). They assume that human beings are by nature good, which is one of the fundamental flaws in their belief system. For the best example of this, just look at kids. I love my kids like no other, but they're a perfect example of the "evil" nature of human beings. By their very nature, until we teach them different, they are selfish, greedy, lazy, etc... I mean, just watch them... Tell them they need to give the neighbor kid's toy back... Or even worse, explain it to them, and then when they don't listen, you have to take it out of their hands... What's their response? "NO!!!! {WHACK}... MINE!!!!!"

You get the point. Liberals (and funny enough, socialists, anarchists, communists, evolutionists, and a host of other "ists") also believe that humans are good by nature. Unfortunately, it doesn't jive with anyone's experience.
