Missouri Cities Take Aim at Your Second Amendment Rights and Hunting Heritage!
Tuesday, August 07, 2007
On August 2, in a speedy and quiet manner, the City of Maryland Heights enacted a far-reaching, ominous ordinance that bans all discharge of firearms within the city limits. In taking this draconian swipe at law-abiding gun owners, the City Council has effectively stripped gun owners of their ability to sport shoot, hunt and defend themselves and their loved ones from a violent attack! That’s right, under the new ordinance, even the discharge of a firearm in self-defense is banned in Maryland Heights!
What kind of stupidity is this?

Letter From Lawyer Describing Real Estate During the Great Depression
The following (courtesy of Tom at CometGold.com) is an excerpt from letter written from a lawyer from Mason City, Iowa in the Corn Belt, recounting the impact of the Great Depression of the 1930s on his town. Foreclosures galore. Tom’s Comment: “Anything sound familiar?” Just substitute residential real estate for farm land, when reading the following:
“The boom period of the last years of the World War and the extremely inflationary period of 1919 and 1920 were like the Mississippi Bubble and the Tulip Craze in Holland in their effect upon the general public. Farm prices shot sky high almost over night. The town barber and the small-town merchant bought and sold options until every town square was a real estate exchange. Bankers and lawyers, doctors and ministers left their offices and clients and drove pell mell over the country to procure options and contracts upon this farm and that, paying a few hundred dollars down and expecting to sell the rights before the following March brought settlement day.
A sobering read. Neither a borrower nor a lender be? Especially when you’re old and gray.

This Hurricane Season
by Sean Gangol
Yes, George deserves his share of the blame. However people seemed to forget that the local governments didn’t handle the emergences any better. The mayor of New Orleans is the one I blame the most. The man acted surprised when his city ended up underwater. Gee, who would ever think that a city that was built below sea level would be prone to flooding? I remember going to New Orleans ten years ago and hearing the locals dread the day that the big one would hit. Apparently the locals have known for a long time that New Orleans was destined to be hit with a catastrophic hurricane. So why is it that a city official never thought to plan ahead for a disaster like Katrina?
Then there were members of the New Orleans’ PD that showed compassion for their citizens by going door to door confiscating legally owned firearms. Of course they had to take the guns out of the hands of law-biding citizens; so that they could protect the officers that participated in the looting.
When one plans your personal recovery effort, where you cache your weapons is a critical choice. Considering how the gooferment quickly confiscates them, you should have some spares put away.
Remember the Jews being rounded up and sent to the camps.
Can’t happen here? Have you forgotten the Japanese Internment, Katrina, and all the other demonstrations of the gooferment’s SOP.
Yup, I believe deep in my heart, that if each Jewish family had a gun when the storm trooper broke in and just killed the first thug, the Nazis would have run out of thugs very quickly.
So to, here in the new USAMERIKA, there will come a time when they will be coming. How will you meet them? As docile as a sheep, or like a porcupine?

Arrests at the IRS office
The FreeStaters are taking on the IRS and Homeland Security. No First Amendment Rights in Federal Buildings? That’s news to me. And, I bet it would shock most lawyers.
