Michael E. Cook: Gun Control is a Pipe Dream

"...You see there are people in this country who would love to see our way of life and freedoms lost forever. This all started prior to us being a nation when the British wanted to control the people here in America. Back then they were called patriots by the British and traitors by the Americans who wanted freedom. One way to control any civilization is to remove any form of weapons from them so they have nothing to defend themselves with. With weapons they can fight back and make it very difficult for an oppressive government. They can feed themselves when they need food, they can keep criminals from invading their property and harming the family and friends, and most of all they can call themselves free people. Those who would take our right to bear arms from us don’t want any of these things for other people. They want you to need all these things from them. They want your government to control your property, your family, even your food supply. In other words they want to make you and your family slaves forever to be controlled by them. ..."

"The papers are filled with tears from the crying towel of liberals who just don’t get it: the NRA is not an extremist group as intentionally mislabeled, it is a liberty advocacy group, the things liberals used to be for, and it is one of the oldest in the nation, if not the very oldest civil rights group."

"Still, the Columbus City Council cries foul, unable to see how they bite the hand that feeds them: commerce and liberty."

"Ohio is a right-to-carry state, which means that the People have elected to permit law-abiding to carry weapons. There are no bad weapons, only bad people who use them. And why shouldn’t people carry? The law-abiding don’t commit crimes. A rational city council would have nothing to fear from law-abiding citizens. Only irrational, unwell public servants fear the public when they should fear criminals."

"President Bush's nomination of Judge John G. Roberts of the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. to succeed retiring Associate Justice Sandra Day O'Connor on the U.S. Supreme Court will give Senate Democrats an opportunity to demonstrate their long-claimed support for the Second Amendment."

"There have been no clear-cut rulings by Judge Roberts to suggest one way or the other how he looks at the Amendment, but his history shows a strict constructionist view of the Constitution. Alan M. Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF), suggested that during the confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary Committee, the nominee be quizzed on his interpretation of this important individual civil right."

"Legislation that would insulate the gun industry from lawsuits based on the misuse of its products is again on the list of bills that have made it out of committee and are eligible for a vote on the floor of Congress."

"The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act would pre-empt state laws for most negligence and product liability actions in which the defendant is a gun manufacturer, gun seller or trade association."

"Supporters, like the National Rifle Association, say such protection is long overdue and part of much needed tort reform."

"Critics, like the American Bar Association, say the liability bill will immunize an entire industry against negligence lawsuits and undermine government's ability to revoke rogue gun dealers' licenses."
