"Assault weapons laws resemble hate speech laws. Hate speech laws usually begin by targeting a few words that almost no one approves. Once the system for controlling and punishing “hate speech” is put into place, there is little or nothing to stop it from expanding to punish more and more types of everyday speech. Similarly, once an assault weapons law is on the books, there is little to prevent politicians from vastly increasing the number of weapons banned under the law. The main effect of banning assault weapons is to give government an excuse to arrest and imprison millions of Americans while doing little or nothing to reduce crime. America has a limited number of police, and politicians must decide who the real public enemies are. If Mr. Clinton signs an assault weapons ban, it could signal the start of an attack on gun owners’ constitutional rights that could far surpass all previous gun bans."-- James BovardAmerican author, lecturer
We have been fortunate in riposting these efforts. So far. But there is a tendency to lump us all together those of us who value Freedom, into knuckle dragging 'right wingers'. The list of offenses is long and egregious. I hate these real haters.
They finger point and cherry pick re hate. And in that plus their tendency to lump us all together is their weakness and downfall.
I urge you to counter them and show them as they really are.
Whatever you believe, there is a Biblical passage encouraging people to 'hate what is evil'.
What is more evil than the illogic and thin skin of our accusers?
Be sure, shine the light on real hatred and get ready to have 'rhino skin' against the slings and arrows of outrageous fools.
The attacks continue and what Bovard said is ever recrudescent.
Be even moreso.
