Chuck Baldwin: The Arizona Shootings, The Second Amendment, And Aaron Zelman

Chuck Baldwin at ChuckBaldwinLive.com:

The shootings of at least 18 people (6 killed, at least 12 wounded) in Tucson, Arizona, has predictably ignited a firestorm of anti-gun, anti-right, and anti-anything not “liberal” diatribes from the typical big government talking heads in Washington, D.C., and New York City.

Wayne Root – Lessons from the Giffords Tragedy

The Lesson: Get More Guns in the Hands of Law Abiding Citizens!

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”

LP: Obama, McCain don’t get free passes on gun issue

Curiously, although the Gun Owners of America takes a much more hardcore position on the gun issue which is far more in line with the LP platform (yes, even after Portland and Denver), this press release quotes the much more milquetoastish, reliable Republican sycophants at the NRA instead. GOA created the F- category in its rating system specifically for John McCain.… Read more ...
