"As of late Sunday afternoon, my latest column [Before bearing arms, bare your soul, Viewpoints, Sept. 21] had generated 256 comments at OakPark.com, the clear majority coming from arms-bearers baring their souls.

Interesting souls."

"As I predicted in my column, their reactions ranged from 'explosive rage to derisive contempt to arrogant condescension.'"

"Generally, people react that way when they're afraid, and what a frightful universe gun extremists live in. Their obsession with guns is matched only by their obsession with all the bad guys out there just waiting to mug them. They inhabit an alternate universe where every day is combat — the great gunfight at the I'm OK, You're Not Corral." ...

"I'm glad to see Rep. Darrell Issa agrees with me that a special prosecutor is needed to investigate Operation 'Fast and Furious.' As I recently told a crowd at CPAC in Florida, Barack Obama and Eric Holder are stonewalling two congressional investigations, shrugging their shoulders and saying, 'I didn't authorize it. Don't ask me.' Meanwhile, DOJ and ATF employees are being moved back to D.C., where higher-ups can keep a close eye on them. Several of the ATF field agents who first blew the whistle on the scandal say they've been moved to dead-end jobs as retaliation for speaking out.

"This is the biggest cover-up since Watergate and it's time to ask the Watergate question: Who authorized Fast and Furious and how high up does it go? ..." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
