Ah, those ridiculous little politicians. Where do they come up with there ideas? There is the leader of the small Italian town that ordered the people in his village "not to die" this past week! And then there is German Chancellor Angela Merkel. She wants to tax sites like Drudge, just for showing up in her country via the internet. They are such lovable types, aren't they. (Insert chuckle here.)
Of course U.S. leaders are no different. They can gut the Bill of Rights on the national level, and force everyone to have health care and death panels that lets the government determine when your time is up (just the opposite of the Italians, that want you to keep on living). At the state level, they can let criminals and illegals carry firearms anywhere they want, as long as they don't get caught. Citizens can carry firearms too, as long as they don't put a sweater over them. Then, you need a government sanctioned permit, because after all, you are a law-abiding citizen. Ahem.
These are the thought processes of people in government today. Remember that when you question candidates. The right to carry firearms means just that. You have one, you carry it. Period. You are a citizen, not an illegal that seeks permission from the government to breathe! The government should protect the borders (something they aren't doing a good job at), provide for interstate transport with a few roads, and butt out! But that is just Sam's opinion. Perhaps though, it would be a good place to start the dialogue with friends and neighbors...and politicians these days. After all, they are telling us when to live and when to die. Shouldn't we be telling them a few things while they listen for a change?
