    Graystar's thread about "the People" and "individual rights" got me to browsing the internet. I came across this interesting webiste titled:

    International Infromation Programs
    USINFO.STATE.GOV

    So I'm browsing around and click on the "Right to Bear Arms" chapter. What does it say?
    Every other chapter has nice long essays. I checked. But not this one. Hmmm? I wonder how long this site has been up and this chapter has been empty? I'm going to put it in my favorites and check on it once in a while. Maybe it's all new and they just haven't got to it yet. Or maybe it's been up for a couple of years and it will never be posted. Is it just a coincidence that this particular chapter is missing? You think?

    Interesting, no?

    As a scientific wild-assed guess, it might be because the new Secretary of State has a bit different take on RKBA than the last one. :)

    I suppose "unalienable" and "shall not be infringed" are flexible too. :scrutiny:

    That essay's been "under review" for most of a year now, it was taken down after complaints by gun owners that it was deceptively anti-gun.

    here's an archived version of the essay, from before it got removed.

    Thanks Brett. I'll be reading that as soon as I can.

    So more than a year, eh? Interesting.

    I could only read that drivel for a few paragraphs until my dinner began to protest.
