Ther are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. Ronald Reagan, (from an article in Guns & Ammo, 9/75)

"If you live in a country where you're never required to take responsibility for yourself, where you never even have to ask whether there's something you should be doing to solve your own problems, then people are kept in kind of a permanent state of collective immaturity and it becomes quite easy for them to believe that someone else's success is the cause of their distress. " -- Bill Clinton

That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United states who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms... - Samuel Adams, in "Phila. Independent Gazetteer", August 20, 1789

Lawyers have taught people that someone else is always responsible. I cant believe someone would pay their own money, sign all kinds of waivers that tell you that you could DIE, and then jump from a plane/ bungee jump/ white water raft etc... THEN when they get hurt, they sue saying its not their fault. What ever happened to taking responsability for ones own actions? That sshit just PISSES me off. BP
