    ((( Remember that whenever they say "Peace", it translates as "No Guns!" )))
    ((( Where was the NRA on this one, this time? )))

    Another probable slap in the face for our veterans ..........

    "The Peace Alliance" describes a bill to establish a "United States
    Department of Peace" -
    http://www.thepeacealliance.org/content/view/76/68/ . A feelgood
    attempt to "save the world for our children's children" and about
    as unrealistic as trying to spare 200 (desolate) square miles of
    ANWR from oil drilling.

    There is much talk about providing nonviolent solutions to the
    problems of domestic and international conflict but this is
    idealistic more than practical as it ignores the realities of
    modern times as well as history and the nature of the basic human
    animal. Reference is also made to treating and dismantling the
    gang psychology - there is a naive approach if ever there was one,
    showing a near total lack of understanding about gang culture. A
    sweeping cure for poverty and bad parenting might be a marginally
    better approach! Then there is "rehabilitate the prison
    population" ... another head-in-sand objective which totally fails
    to comprehend the criminal mind. Recidivism is the magic word!

    While it is doubtful the majority of rational people seek violence,
    it is equally a fact of life that violence exists and always will.
    We should be very concerned however as, carefully concealed within
    a bill such as this will be inevitable proposals to increase gun
    control, which always only affects the law abiding, and probably
    fitting in very nicely with the UN stance of banning guns world
    wide! "The gun" gets all the blame and always will but we have to
    remain vigilant as stealth attempts at attrition and erosion of the
    second amendment continue - often right under our noses.

    The act is named "Department of Peace and Nonviolence Act" - H.R.
    808 - see here for details ...

    I think this was discussed back when it was drafted in 2007. Not exactly a timely alert from JPFO.
