PreviewThe people shape their own destiny
-- either as free people or as slaves.

If they remain self-reliant, they stay free.
Ever expanding state power destroys lives.

Government panacea is a defective idea.

Sorrows

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot yesterday.

The local authorities claim the gun man was targeting Representative Giffords, but she is expected to survive.

But we have dead to mourn -- U.S. District Judge John M. Roll; Greene; Giffords aide Gabe Zimmerman, 30; Dorothy Morris, 76; Dorwin Stoddard, 76; and Phyllis Scheck, 79.

Please pray for the families and the survivors. We need to trust again.

~~~~~~~~

The gunman ranted, hated religion and loved dope, and did heinous violence. May his name be forgotten.

The authorities say he targeted Giffords, but that doesn't make sense. More likely he saw a crowd as his target.

~~~~~~~~

The leftist totalitarian press has already started beating the drum for more stupid firearms restriction. AP repeatedly makes a point the gunman used a "Glock 9-mm handgun semi-automatic." Why name the brand? Why name the caliber? Why mention the type? What difference does it make?

But continuing AP vile guilt-by-association: The AP gasps that Sarah Palin had Representative Giffords on her 'target" list. For the AP's information, that was a target for un-election, not [character] assassination.

Filled with deception and malice, the AP wallows in their fresh blood, vilifying the liberty loving people of the land.

~~~~~~~~

This is a time for measured responses. Ever opportunistic to move against freedom, the Obama government may insist on presidential edict, more "emergency" gun regulation, and violation of the US Constitution. Mr Obama has shown himself willing to act without legislation in order to further the destruction of free society.

Please be careful that we don't set up a "can't win" scenario where there is no way out. The haters must lose.
