Deciding who owns 'Right To Bear Arms'

"[I]f the Bush administration's Second Amendment theory becomes law, some changes are likely. The Washington, D.C., handgun ban, for example, would probably be struck down as too broad. Similar bans in Chicago and other cities also would be vulnerable, provided that the Supreme Court follows its past practice and applies the restrictions of the Bill of Rights not only to the federal government, but also to the states."

Who Possesses The Right To Bear Arms?

"The Bush Justice Department's May 6 decision to support an individual's right to own guns independent of a militia is a reversal of previous administrations' positions. But the author argues that there is ample evidence to show that the individual right to own guns was well-accepted in the 1700s and 1800s. He lays out his evidence in the chronology below, and also shows how opinions shifted in the 1900s, when the first major federal gun-control laws were passed."

“One week after the Ashcroft Justice Department formally adopted the National Rifle Association (NRA) view that the Second Amendment guarantees a broad individual right to keep and bear arms, the defense team for accused American Taliban terrorist John Walker Lindh has used the government's arguments made to the U.S. Supreme Court to urge dismissal of the gun charge filed against him.”

"The White House on Thursday defended its decision not to alert Americans before the Sept. 11 attacks that Osama bin Laden's terrorist network might try to hijack airplanes. White House officials said such a warning would have risked shutting down the country's airline system ... not only did the government have prior knowledge, but a warning DID go out to the airline industry."

"Why Bush wants Russia to be a friend. And the NRA, too."

"The NRA isn't the nation's largest lobby: It has 4 million members vs. the AARP's 35 million. But those members care so passionately about keeping their guns that they vote on that issue come Election Day. Now that so few people even bother to show up at the polling booth, any group that can promise thousands of voters pointed in one direction is a group that wields real power."

THE PROSPECTS FOR LIBERTY

"The reason I am not optimistic about the future of liberty is because the freedom gains of the last two decades have come dishonestly. There are ulterior motives behind statist leaders’ efforts to partially dismantle certain aspects of Socialism. ... free market reforms are only the bait in the globalist trap of international regulatory control. Because of this ulterior motive, our enthusiasm for recent gains should be cautious."

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
