That post is pretty chicken-hearted. "I believe in something, but not enough to do anything about it."

Maybe he just believes freedom of speech is not intended so we can all talk about puppies and flowers.

I like the Yammamoto quote the best. It illustrates the fallacy of the anti-gun control paranoia, because the same fate would await any government that tried to "take away our guns."

But I do think it is reasonable to treat firearms like automobiles, requiring completing some sort of training course to get a permit, and registering the guns so they can be traced when used to commit crimes.

It seems as soon as something is registered it soon is taxed. If a tax was added to firearms and ammo that provided training on firearms safety, well maybe. At least in our state the tax is used for something entirely different.

Presumably, unless you bought your gun from a private owner (not a dealer), you already paid sales tax on it, and your bullets as well. For that matter, if the NRA stopped spending millions on anti-gun-control propaganda and lobbying, they could fund free gun-safety classes for all. When I was ten years old, I took an NRA class at my local Boys' Club, and I really think something like that should be required for everyone.

An old Herb Block cartoon -- I've tried to find it, if I could, I'd post it here! -- shows four men: One is walking his dog; another has a fishing pole; the third is driving his car, and the fourth is carrying a rifle. The caption: "Which one of these men doesn't need a license?"

That really is absurd, when you get right down to it!

Bob, I'll make a deal with you. You lobby the Dems to halt their gun grabbing ways and I'll lobby the NRA to stop fighting them and start giving out gun safety courses. Oh, and the answer to the caption: the one who has a constitutionally protected right to engage in his activity, right up until he uses it to shoot an animal at which point he needs a license. You're right, the cartoon is absurd.

This traveler was wandering an island occupied entirely by cannibals. He comes upon a butcher shop.

This shop specialised in human brains. The sign in the shop read:

Artists' Brains $9/oz
Philosophers' Brains $12/oz
Scientists' Brains $15/oz
Republicans' Brains $19/oz
Democrats' Brains $2,000/oz

Upon reading the sign, the traveler asked, "Why are the Democrats brains so expensive? They must be a much higher quality brain" The butcher replied, "Are you kidding! Do you have any idea how many Democrats you have to kill to get a ounce of brains?!"
