Quote of the day—John M. Snyder

What we really need are policies that penalize politicians and managers who undermine the right and ability of law-abiding citizens to get, carry and use the guns and ammunition they need to protect the right to life itself from the madmen and criminals who burden our society.

  1. By “policies” I assume we are talking about law. We already have the constitution, the Oath, and the impeachment process, plus 18 USC 241 and 18 USC 242 and no doubt there are others. As with Eric Holder being asked to investigate the Justice Department, the problem is we are expecting the guilty to enforce laws against themselves. We could pile on a thousand more such laws, statutes, rules and provisions and it wouldn’t make any significant difference.

    Same goes for the immigration laws that are not being enforced and were never intended to be enforced. We call for more laws to not enforce, on top of the thousands already being not enforced.

    This is not a legal or legislative problem. We’ve been fooled by slight-of-hand into looking to legislators while the problems grow in other areas, but mostly it is a cultural problem. As I heard this morning; we’re hacking away at the outter branches of evil, can’t see the trunk of the tree, and we’re totally unaware that the roots even exist.

    Also; there is no need to “protect the right to life itself” as it is as imutable as the law of gravity. As such, true rights can be neither created nor destroyed. You can protect life, or take it away, but the right to life remains unaltered. I thought we had established this long ago.
