It's not going to happen. Everyone simply needs to register as a member of the Evil Party, then there is a chance to steer the election towards non-socialist candidates.

Joe Curran also referenced the discredited research of Michael Bellesiles and soon after an inquiry of distinguished historians found Bellesiles "guilty of unprofessional and misleading work".

I'd be willing to bet our tax dollars were used while he wrote this report.

I laugh when the media does the dirty work of the government and then cry crocodile tears when one of their own gets arrested for filming something they don't want you to know about. Yet, they've been instrumental in allowing it to get this far, in the first place.

Yea... It's like that.

The best part is that people are so ignorant of history that they will never understand the rights that we used to have, and the government that didn't exist in the past.

We didn't have income tax 100 years ago.

You could have an automatic weapon shipped to your house 100 years ago.

Because of course, if guns are outlawed, all the criminals will immediately stop using guns, and we'll all be safe.

Curran meant well. Like the old (lousy) joke goes, 'so did Hitler'.

I'm no lawyer, and don't play one on TV, but couldn't the SAF use Curran's supposedly state-sponsored writings on the restriction of rights to our benefit in a court case?

. Yep.

Sad that the majority of news stories involving guns are about accidents or criminal use. Overwhelmingly guns are used to deter crime and protect people. You almost never hear reported when a would be home invader/rapist knocks on a door and finds an armed home owner. I wonder how many close calls happen before the criminal finds someone sufficiently defenseless to become their victim.

Too many people walking around with a false sense of security. If someone decides to not be aware, avoid problems, and be prepared to defend themselves, I can accept that and respect their right. But for these sheep to deny your right to take a different path and not be a willing victim, that's wrong, and can not be accepted.
