"'The concept of a 'monopoly on force' might sound foreign or even frightening to Americans that take great pride in our revolutionary beginnings,' Horwitz continues, 'but it is the fundamental organizing principle of any political entity, including the United States.'"

"To back up this assertion, he cites, 'German political economist and sociologist Max Weber.'”

"What he doesn’t cite is Weber's support for approving Article 48 into the Weimar constitution, establishing 'emergency powers' to bypass Reichstag consent, and allowing Adolf Hitler’s rise to unchallenged power. ..." ...

"Thursday’s confirmation of Elena Kagan as the 112th justice to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court was one more signal that the court system, because of the people elected or appointed to the bench, is in serious trouble if not completely off the tracks, if one listens to the critics."

thing to buy; a machine gun that doesn't actually shoot."

"But for collectors this really isn't such an odd thing. Consider that military airplanes in museums don't exactly fly ... So while it may seem like heresy to the faithful gun collector, one alternative when it comes to machine guns is actually getting one that is 'non-gun' or 'dummy gun.' But there is a lot more to it.

"Actually until the last decade even machine guns that couldn't fire had been strictly regulated in many states. However, the [ATF], now sees that the only part to be concerned with in a machine gun is the receiver. ..."

"Today the rules have changed, and that 'receiver' is the key to the puzzle." ...

Temperatures were estimated at mid-90s to 100 degrees ambient, with a 'real-feel' heat factor estimated at 107 to 110 degrees.

But over the last few years I've been pretty disgusted that there's not more than a dime's worth of difference between most Democrats and Republicans anyway... so for BFA to endorse Strickland over Kasich PROVES that Ohio gun owners are serious about the subject of gun rights." ...
