"The Opinion piece by E.J. Dionne charges that 'Reckless politicians fail to act after Trayvon killing.' His byline says he offers 'reasoned political analysis from an energetic progressive viewpoint.' That's a lot of words to say 'mainstream liberal who hates guns.' Perhaps he gets paid by the word. His reasoned political analysis absolutely parrots the Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) to the point that Dionne barely had to type the words. Cut and paste would have saved him considerable effort." ...

"Earlier this week, the federal government announced that the Air Force might be dispatching drones to a backyard near you. The stated purpose of these spies in the sky is to assist local police to find missing persons or kidnap victims, or to chase bad guys."

"If the drone operator sees you doing anything of interest, the feds say they may take a picture of you and keep it. The feds predict that they will authorize about 30,000 of these unmanned aerial vehicles across America in the next 10 years. Meanwhile, more than 300 local and state police departments are awaiting federal permission to use the drones they already have purchased -- usually with federal stimulus funds." ...

No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. -- Ayn Rand
