Patriot Act I & II and the post 9/11 terrorism policy!!
1930's Germany! You got an Administration that was not elected in.
And NOBODY asked any questions?
The question should be, are the gun enthusiasts willing to do civil war
to keep and bear ams? Because here in the USA in the not too far off
future, we will lose that right, then what?
I'm fully qualified on several military style weapons via U.S. Navy
Seabees once upon a time and I don't have a gun in the house! Here in
NY State there is no justifiable reason to kill somebody with a gun, let
alone other weapons. If you do, jail time it will be, unless you are a
prominent person with connections and lots of dough!!
Nobody makes a big deal about it, like during WWII, but the USA is at
war currently in Afghanistan and Iraq and if the powers that are,
suspect USA security is at risk, you bet your life people will be
investigated. Be careful who your friends are and who you associate
with. Sounds like the way Germany and Russia used to be. Scary stuff!!
Glad I don't have kids.
Comment on your Trefor Thomas quote: I disagree. In my experience,
what I saw a la USA Navy basic training, up above Chicago, my own
people, anybody can cause unimaginable mayhem and terror. All you gotta
do is push the right buttons in the right sequence at a bad time in
one's life. Anybody can snap! On a simpler scale, brainwashing does
the job nicely. You can very nicely take the domesticated and make
warriors out of them, the military does it every day. True some don't
cut it and wash out, but most go thru without hardly even a fight. It's
about comradship, tribe mentality and all that good stuff: Duty, God,
Country, Honor. And PTSD for the survivors to deal with later, the rest
of their lives.

Late evening breaking story...
KABA Writer Investigated for Questioning Civil Authority
Police say Investigation "Ongoing"
"Did you know that writing a rhetorical letter to the civil authorities
in California challenging their hypocrisy results in a police
investigation that includes not only calls from detectives but two black
and white police cruisers coming to your home?"
"That's what happened to longtime gun rights activist and professional
writer David Codrea this week. What follows is a link to the
investigation-inspiring letter, a detailed description of what
transpired and a description of how trying to get our own answers from
the investigators resulted in unwillingness to respond to our simple,
reasonable inquiry." ...

COMMENT ON THIS SITUATION
What do you think about having the First Amendment Police knocking on
your door for the high crime of asking questions in defense of gun
rights? We'd love to hear from as many people as possible.

incapable of committing mayhem is not the mark of the civilized, merely
the domesticated." - Trefor Thomas
