The Symbolism of Gun Control

As both sides understand, of course, gun control has far less to do with crime than with control. Timothy Carney has a good take on the issue.

"just the beginning" of the Assault on the 2nd Amendment

So what else is new?

There is no secret that any of the subversions of the Constitution are anything other than "just the beginning."

That's why the assault on the 2nd Amendment is so important to both sides.

Preppers Are Crazed, Marginal Types

Crazed and marginal like Los Angeles Fire Battalion Chief Larry Collins:
Residents were urged to prepare for a number of disaster scenarios, including how to cope for being at least “two weeks on your own”.

“The message for a lot of us needs to be, ‘Be ready for anything’,” said Battalion Chief Larry Collins. “The message used to be 72 hours, but we’ve seen in disasters like [Hurricane] Katrina, even [Hurricane] Sandy recently, that, really, if it’s wiped out your infrastructure, and your electricity grid and your communications, it will be very likely be more than three days before you start getting food, water and other supplies coming in from outside.”
Two weeks is a long time, but not at all difficult if you have access to

Really now, not having a couple weeks food and water is just irresponsible. Who do you think should take care of you if you can't be bothered?

Washington County, Wisconsin, Sheriff on Citizens, Guns, and the Constitution

Sheriff Dale K. Schmidt apparently believes that the government ought to submit to the US Constitution. As he points out, that puts him on the wrong side of Milwaukee Police Chief Flynn. Good for him.

As Sheriff Schmidt wrote:
Recent comments on gun control by Milwaukee Police Chief Flynn highlight, for me, a problem with law enforcement in this country. Too often, law enforcement leaders confuse all citizens with criminals, and see themselves as “kings” of their jurisdiction instead of employees of the people...

...Law enforcement in America was never supposed to be about “ruling the people.” We are hired by “the people” to do that part of crime fighting they cannot do themselves. The citizens never gave up their protection against unlawful search of their persons, or seizure of their property, or the right to own guns and defend themselves, in that process...
Sheriff Schmidt just threw away any chance of running for mayor of anywhere on the Democratic Party ticket.

Thanks to CLK for the tip.
