Joe Paterno, who racked up more wins than anyone else in major college football but was fired from Penn State amid a child sex-abuse scandal, has died. He was 85.

Now we won’t have his testimony about what happened. Was he deposed? What about statements that he made to investigators?

Will we ever know?

GUNS: Politicians and bureaucrats harass gun owners for oversights

KNOX GUN-RIGHTS REPORT

States still ‘gun’ for unsuspecting firearm owners
by Jeff Knox

*** begin quote ***

A decision to carry a gun for defense brings with it a raft of responsibilities. The defensive mindset that should accompany carrying – situational awareness and avoidance strategies, competence with the firearm and the moral implications of using deadly force – needs to extend to the legal and political environment as well. It must be understood that even a clearly justified defensive use of a firearm – which saves your life – can easily cost your home and life savings. Deadly force is serious business. No one should take the decision lightly, and threat recognition needs to include recognizing the threat posed by state power – particularly in states like New York.

*** end quote ***

We don’t need “State” or “Local” Gooferments playing “gotcha” with responsible gun owners.

Crimes committed with, or without, a gun deserve restitution. It may be harsher than what we do today. Actions have consequences. Oversights that harm no one should be ignored.

How did we lose so many of our rights?

Argh!
