Homeland Security?

Subject: Homeland Security?

Mr. Ridge would get a copy of this, too, but I can't find an email address for him yet.

Today, Tom Ridge said:

"…everyone in the homeland must play a part".

"…while the effort will begin here, it will require the involvement of America at every level." the job "calls for a national effort. We've seen it before, whether it was building the Trans-Continental Railroad, fighting World War II, or putting a man on the moon."

So, when is the general schedule going to be opened up so Real American Men can buy M-16s? Oh, that's right, we can't be trusted with effective weaponry. What about 5.56mm ammunition in case lots at GSA schedule prices to go with the emasculated versions of these rifles we CAN buy? Just make sure there's flash retardant in the powder since muzzle brake, good, flash suppressor, bad - and I'm sure A.G. Ashcroft will have no problem trying to put Real American Men in Leavenworth for 10 years because the shape of the piece of steel on the end of their rifles isn't quite right. Or the barrel might, GASP, be threaded, just like the one's you're sending our teenagers to the Middle East with. Will you ever learn?

Perhaps you in the U.S. government will get it through your thick skulls that a well-armed populace is "NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE" and remove the unlawful prohibitions on firearm purchases.

Oh, Mr. President, how about removing that asinine ban on "new" machine guns your father enacted.
I am all for increasing homeland security. Let's start with the Real American Men, aka the militia.

It's funny how a SEMI-automatic rifle in the hands of a Real American Man is called an "Assault Weapon" while the FULLY-automatic rifle in the hands of a soldier is called a "rifle."

No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
