    We need to understand the people who are trying to re-write the Constitution. Attached is a link I ran across on another website. Scary thought process, but this is what we are up against..!

    Thanks to all who administer this site and to all the members who post here. I have been reading the posts here for a number of years and just recently joined the board. I appreciate the opportunity to converse with like-minded Americans.. Thanks!

    That's a shame. Kurt Eichenwald wrote a wonderful expose on dialysis practices in America in about 1996 if I remember correctly for the NY Times. The article is still quoted today in dialysis circles.

    However, he tortured himself with slanted grammar in his essay on gun control and the 2A. Unfortunately, there are getting to be more sheeople in the US. We are in for a battle where the other side doesn't play by fair rules.

    Well, that's a very typical lib who seems willing to allow us to keep our guns but wants us to buy insurance, like we do when we drive a car. No comprehension of what the 2A means as he over-analyzes pecayune semantics.

    you're right, the thought process of the anti crowd (in this case, "reasonably" pro crowd) can get very scary. the fact that there are a growing number of people that have returned to the point of wanting a monarch, with a divine right to rule its subjects, is a frightening thought indeed.

    Midnight Oil: They don't care a whit about the form or process. They want civilians disarmed, and they want it now.

    If it can be accomplished by executive fiat, they're fine with unitary tyranny.

    If it can be accomplished by muscling a bill through the legislature, they're fine with oligarchical tyranny.

    If it can be accomplished through ballot initiatives, they're fine with the tyranny of the majority.

    We cannot project our values (rule of law, due process) onto them. They respect neither. Ends matter to them, not means.

    Even though i don't agree with Kurt Eichenwald, the writer of the essay, I have to say it's one of the most Intelligent arguments supporting firearm control I've read in some time. I’m starting to believe that if there is any major firearm control legation passed in the next few years an argument such as the authors may be the basis for it.

    I would argue trash like this article harms more people, guess we should ban the first amendment too?

    The 1st has been being stomped on for while now along with the 4th and 5th.
