Rules tyrants follow:

1) Control travel - freedom requires FREE TRAVEL

2) Control guns- Disarmed citizens are subjects - armed ones are equals

3) Tax all aspects of anything that results in freedom

4) Control thought.

Where is the liberal outrage? Where is the liberal suspicion about powerful, unchecked governments? Where is the liberal unflinching devotion to individual liberty?

We have a president who has radically reshaped the landscape of American government so that it is more of a behemoth than at any time in history and more involved in every aspect of our lives. It is also more unanswerable than ever before.

Now this president is issuing 23 new edicts aimed at curbing individuals’ gun rights. At the same time, his federal agencies are stockpiling more and more weapons and ammunition.

And for what, exactly? To go hunting? To shoot the Chinese when they come to collect their debts? To shoot Mexicans tumbling over the Southern border? To shoot the Canadians?

What does the Department of “Homeland Security” suddenly need 1.4 billion more rounds of ammunition at the very point the same government is making it harder for citizens to arm themselves?

There are only 300 million of us. How many bullets do you need? That’s more than four bullets for every American man, woman and child. Is your aim really that bad? I mean, have you seen us lately? We are too fat to run very far.

You can say these concerns are some sort of Alex Jones, wack-nut, black helicopter paranoia or you can simply ask, “Why does the government need a billion more rounds of ammo just as it is trying to disarm citizens?”

And the lists. The lists of people who are deemed too mentally unstable to own a gun.

A principled liberal would be horrified at the notion that the government is going to keep giant lists of people who are criminals or who are deemed crazy or dangerous. And even more breathtaking is that these lists will be used to determine the degree of freedom those individuals will be granted by the government.

Do you remember the liberal outrage over the huge government list to keep people deemed dangerous from flying on airplanes? I guess my dad was right.... the libs are a bunch of liars that love authoritarianism.

Really good post Rob! And very true!
"Stand with anybody that stands RIGHT. Stand with him while he is right and PART with him when he goes wrong." --Abraham Lincoln
Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up, and shake off the existing government, and form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world.

You cannot run into a crowded theater and yell FIRE, right? That is not protected under the 1st amendment. see 

Schenck v. United States

Brandenburg v. Ohio

So basically all speech is protected unless it incites imminent lawless activity.  So the last two massacres that took place both individuals were known to either watch violent movies or play violent games.

So my question is, can we start to require that any doctor treating someone for a mental condition, report it to the feds, so they could then remove all the games and movies from their home and ban access to them for that household?

Can a therapist treating someone like maybe Chris Matthews turn him in and have him taken off the air because he may incite imminent lawless acts? He might not have done that up until now but if he is receiving treatment for a condition you never know what he may do.

The 1st amendment is the one that allows people like him and all the other people that sell violence for entertainment to slander the hard working people that think that the second amendment is how we keep the first amendment.
