GUNS: Concealed Carry Recognition Bill

Rep. Paul Broun Introduces Concealed Carry Recognition Bill

*** begin quote ***

Pro-gun champion Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) recently introduced a concealed carry recognition bill, H.R. 2900, that allows law-abiding citizens who can legally carry concealed in their home state to carry all across the country, as well.

It would seem that since driver’s license are accepted across the fifty states that gun licenses would the same thing.

Of course, a proper reading of the Second Amendment would make this law unnecessary.

Guns are just another tool.

And, as Heinlein wrote: “An armed society is a polite society.”

Why should the Gooferment monopolize the right of self-defense?

RANT: The essence of the struggle for the soul of America

Free to Die
Published: September 15, 2011

The second is that very few of those who die from lack of medical care look like Mr. Blitzer’s hypothetical individual who could and should have bought insurance. In reality, most uninsured Americans either have low incomes and cannot afford insurance, or are rejected by insurers because they have chronic conditions.

So would people on the right be willing to let those who are uninsured through no fault of their own die from lack of care? The answer, based on recent history, is a resounding “Yeah!”

Think, in particular, of the children.

Analysis and criticism of America’s most prominent public intellectual and champion of Keynesian economics. I am part of the Austrian School of Economics, and I critique Krugman’s writings from that perspective.

Krugman and the New Moralizing

*** begin quote ***

According to Krugman, ONLY the Welfare State can ensure the moral outcomes; anything else is immoral, and those who object to any aspect of the Welfare State are immoral monsters who just want to see others suffer and starve. Am I exaggerating? Read the column and you will see what I mean.

*** end quote ***

Upon reflection, it seems to me that:

(1) The Welfare / Warfare State fueled by the Federal Reserve Bank’s printing press and controlled by all the “BIG” groups (i.e., the military industrial complex, Wall Street, the trial lawyers, Big Unions, Big Banks, Big Pharma, Big Auto, Big Gooferment, …) impoverishes everyone. The elite rich have the capability and resources to ride the storm that the poor, old, and middle class don’t.

(2) American’s are the most generous people on the planet. Even with inflation and high taxes, they continue to support charities. Why would that change when more wealth is retained by those who create it?

(3) The Gooferment is excluding all private efforts and transferring that control to bureaucrats. How can that be good?
