New Year's resolution: Become a 'Militia of One'

"The end of the year has arrived, and with it, the time to make New Year's resolutions. Being far less, er . . . resolute than National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea, I will not cover nearly as much ground as he did last year, but I will offer this one resolution: become a 'Militia of One.' (The Army has moved on from its 'Army of One' recruiting slogan, so I figured they wouldn't mind my adaptation.)

"What do I mean by that, though? ..." ...

USA Today offers gun-ownership poll

"Mainstream media outlets rarely address gun ownership in a positive way, but a new USA Today poll actually asks what readers believe the Second Amendment means, the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance announced today." ...
-------

Submitter's Note: I really wanted to vote 'No', because the question asks if the Second *gives* Americans a right. As any journalist should know the Bill of Rights does not give any rights, it protects pre-existing individual civil and human rights.

"... We were awakened around 7:30 AM by very loud thunder and very bright flashes of lightning. But we didn’t panic. We live in an area that gets lots of tornadoes, and we have a well-rehearsed and well-practiced tornado reaction plan. We know our plan backwards and forwards . . ." ...

"The other day I received two versions of an excellent piece of equipment called the GobSpark produced by Ron Fontaine of FireSteel.com."

"Not sure what’s up with this, exactly. The Illinois gunmaker put the image on ar15.com for a while, without drawing any speculation from the site’s firearm faithful. Check the fluted barrel. I reckon ArmaLite’s going in for some .50 cal. sniper action. All will be revealed at the SHOT show ..."

"It’s been a few days since I’ve posted anything here on TTAG. My apologies, my daughter was in town, and my 12-year-old offspring is a force of nature, and not to be denied when she in for the holidays. But all good things must eventually come to an end (all too soon, if you ask me) and so we made our pilgrimage to Love Field to put her on a plane to Amarillo. But before that, we’d planned to come over a day early to see friends, let her get in a little shopping at her own version of Mecca (Sam Moon Importers, if you must know), and attend a party billed as 'Pistols and Pizza,' where a bunch of friends go to a gun range and shoot holes in pieces of paper, then indulge in some really good pizza ..." ...
 

Three Slices Of Life And Death

... "The American judicial system is filled with liberal, politically correct and touchy-feely judges. The real crimes here are against the American public. Police officers are killed by people who should already be dead. Young girls are repeatedly molested and raped and no one notices. Teenagers are let off from obvious assault charges with: “Don’t let me catch you doing anything like that again young man!” I believe it is time for me to exercise my Constitutional right under the Second Amendment to purchase a nice big gun to protect me. The American judicial and punishment system just isn’t doing the job."

"Last night, I was browsing through Kennesaw Patch when I came across an article entitled 'Don't Shoot: A Criticism of Kennesaw's Gun Laws' by our esteemed columnist, Mr. James Swift."

"I knew right away I was going to take issue with the article because Mr. Swift stands much further to the Left in politics than I do. I am a journalist, however, and I try my darndest to examine both sides of any argument, so I gritted my teeth and resolved to read it all the way through." ...

"He was being honest."

"He does not believe in the Constitution."

"He is cynical about it and he projects that same cynicism onto those who disagree with him." ...
 

Ezra Klein Is More Confusing Than That 'Old' Constitution
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

... "The Constitution is not confusing -- Ezra Klein is confusing. The ‘issue of the Constitution’ is not that the language is confusing; it’s that people like Klein are so readily willing to disregard the parts of the U.S. Rulebook that they don’t like (like the Second Amendment) and make up parts to suit their own purposes (like the ‘right to privacy’). The issue is that there are people that believe that the Constitution is a binding document, an agreement among a nation of people that broke from tyranny and decided to give self-government a try, and other people that believe it’s a living, breathing document open to reinterpretation whenever the wind shifts direction." ...

"With the recent enactment of a federal policy that allows its passengers to ride the rails with their guns, Amtrak created nearly 150 'bullet trains' overnight. The change, which went into effect December 15, was mandated by legislation passed in December 2009 and lifts the weapons ban Amtrak put in place in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks." ...

"'House Republican leaders want to lift a ban on guns and other dangerous weapons in the New Hampshire Statehouse complex put in place last year by Democrat,' boston.com reports. After that killer opening (so to speak), reporter Norma Love chronicles the legislative wrangling between the gun rights right and the all-guns-left-behind left. Which is to say the article devolves into the kind of deadly dull journalism charting the changes at your School Board (aside from the Florida shoot-out). Mercifully, Love ends her piece by presenting the pros and cons of the matter, giving the prize position to . . ." ...
 

OH: Governor-elect Kasich appoints anti-gun Highway Patrol bureaucrat to superintendent position

"The Columbus Dispatch reported recently that Governor-elect John Kasich has appointed Maj. John Born to serve as the next superintendent of the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP)."

"The name John Born is quite familiar to pro-gun rights activists who were in the Buckeye State for the fight to pass a shall-issue concealed carry law, and his appointment to the top post in the bureaucracy of the OSHP is likely to provoke fears of dark days ahead for pro-gun legislation." ...

"Eric Strausbaugh of Kenosha, Wisconsin, a 34-year-old husband and father, killed himself last October 31. Friends recall that he was experiencing marital difficulties and a great deal of job-related stress. A large part of his emotional burden was the result of his actions on November 9, 2004, when he was an accomplice in the murder of Michael Edward Bell."

"Strausbaugh, an officer with the Kenosha Police Department, confronted Bell in front of his home at about 2:10 a.m. He has never provided an unambiguous legal rationale for the stop ..." ...

"About 1,000 students from high schools throughout Southern Nevada participated in the 54th annual Sun Youth Forum on Nov. 23. The students were divided into groups to discuss various topics. ... Chad Clemens of Palo Verde High School writes about issues covered by his group, 'Law and Crime.'" ...

"On the next issue, gun control, the room almost completely favored tighter restrictions. Some argued the safety of our citizens should be considered top priority. Although most argued for stricter ownership laws, the consensus was in favor of the Second Amendment." ...

Submitter's Note: Sorry Chad, you can't be in favor of restrictions and the Second Amendment.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Gentlemen may cry, 'peace, peace'—but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! Is life so precious, or peace so dear, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death! — Patrick Henry to the Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775.
