The price of freedom is often too high for those who claim to want it. They need to understand that it only works if freedom extends to peaceable actions they disagree with and may not even like.

Liberty is cruel. She requires you to stand and take responsibility for your choices. Tyranny is a kind master who requires only that you kneel and surrender your choices. Those who want to take your guns will be holding the leashes of those who get to keep theirs. Linux comes with a compiler. Windows comes with Solitaire.

Kurt Hoffman I judge a man by his works, not his faith or lack thereof. In Christianity there is no room for Atheists; in Atheism there is no room for Christians. In Individualism there is room for all. Of course I carry a gun! It gives me a chance against the sinners and protection from the righteous. -- Armed, Godless Heathen.
