"It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt." -- JP Curran, 1790

The Top of the Slippery Slope

H.R. 45 - Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009

And so it begins, the liberals are now not only calling to reinstate "fairness" (read: liberal bias) to the radio waves where they see Conservative successes, they probably sense that the only way to do this is to first take our guns. I mean, after all, that's how the Nazis and the Soviets did it, why should Democrats be any different than their mentors?

Those of you vaguely familiar with the concept of logic (liberal visitors to this site may want to Google the term or read some of the works of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle) will understand that the slippery slope of complete government control approaches. They start with a seemingly innocuous piece of legislation, tied to a "Save the Children Act of [insert current year here]" as an addendum, which creates some new type of government bureaucracy to monitor or control your freedom. Liberals, socialists, and communists understand that our founding fathers knew full well the dangers of government oppression, and that the 2nd Amendment was put into place to ensure that overzealous bureaucrats didn't dare tread on the rights and freedoms of Americans. They will tell you it's for your own good, and it's the best philosophical argument in their mind. After all they "probably have a much higher I.Q. than you do." (Biden quote to reporters) Of course, this doesn't apply to government, by any means. You'll see what I'm talking about in a minute.

Ladies and gentlemen, enter the 111th Congress, stage left. After passing a "stimulus" bill that spends $800 billion dollars that we don't have, calls for "fairness" (censorship), and a series of blunders by the Executive Branch in its handling of cabinet positions, we now have H.R. 45, which is step 1 in the liberal agenda of removing guns from all citizens.

Not a licensed gun collector of dealer? Well, you better have a license, or agents will be at your door, confiscating your weapon, and sending you to prison for 2 years!

Got kids? Well, you may not have guns if the government has anything to do with it. By a loose interpretation of this vague law, we may see such restrictions.

After an entire bill of restrictions on citizens' rights (which will be duly challenged in the Supreme Court if this bill comes to pass), here's my favorite section:



    This Act and the amendments made by this Act shall not apply to any department or agency of the United States, of a State, or of a political subdivision of a State, or to any official conduct of any officer or employee of such a department or agency.

"I've been to Georgia on a fast train honey, I wasn't born no yesterday, Had a good Christian raisin' and an 8th grade education ain't no need in ya'll a treatin' me this way!"
--Texas Outlaws

Keep a track on the House here.

--J. Dallas Brooks, *unlicensed Gun Owner

*this will be "outlaw" after passage of the bill, I presume

I believe in the 1st Amendment. Say whatever you want. If you're a moron, I may point that out...if I have time. :P
