Rights

Jared Marcum, a 14-year old eighth grade honor student, is staring down the possibility of spending his next year in jail … for the crime of wearing an NRA t-shirt.

It's Rule 5 Sunday Monday!
"This isn't to say that stop-and-frisk doesn't have its place. It could be an invaluable tool for protecting New Yorkers and Americans in general — provided cops use it correctly. But they'll need to move their gangs of rapists from tenements and poor neighborhoods to the halls of legislatures, bureaucracies, governors' mansions, the White House, courts, and Congress."

Reason samples some the latest absurdities of busybody lawmakers who "make it their business to mind your business."...

Infamous Rule 5 Sunday!

"Well does the State know Mao's dictum: "political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." The rulers realize that the only way to retain their control over the people is to monopolize the firearms. The powers-that-be perceive that the people can never exercise their right to be free if they have no might to be free. Thus it is in part by gun control that Big Brother perpetuates his hegemony."

Rule 5 Saturday!

"[T]he right of secession lies at the heart of our country's legitimacy. Deny it, and you must reject the American founding."

I especially encourage you to copy and pass on this strong statement about firearms ownership to friends, colleagues, undecideds, and other firearms rights supporters. Your grassroots pamphleteering can counter the propaganda blitz now going on by introducing some reason to the debate. This essay is one of our best weapons.

The government is so pathetic that really, the best thing you can do is laugh at them.

Here's The Government Is Pathetic Exhibit #11,223:

It's Rule 5 Sunday!

"To attain genuine enforceable rights, people need to reject the moral legitimacy of government interference in their lives."
Worship of the Mob
Several months ago, I was visiting some friends in Sydney and was invited to the house of a friend-of-a-friend for some late night drinks and a chat. My host and his friends were left-wing bohemian types and had been informed by my friend that I am a "free-market anarchist," or something like that. They found this notion intriguing, and so they quizzed me on what that means, and this naturally led into a discussion of the merits of a free market versus a democracy.
