Quote of the day–James Bovard

The creeping political repeal of the right to self-defense is a huge decrease in the modern American’s liberty because the government has completely failed to fill the void.  The government has stripped millions of people of their right to own weapons–yet generally left them free to be robbed, raped, and murdered.  Gun bans are one of the best cases of laws that corner private citizens–forcing them either to put themselves into danger or to be a lawbreaker.
