The rule of law should reign supreme in any peaceful society, and when the law is broken society’s enforcers should do their duty to the best of their ability. But what if a law is oppressive or unjust?
What Libertarians didn’t count on was they way legalizing pot would shore up the current efforts in blue states, and at the federal level, to incrementally disarm Americans–that is to literally take away their firearms and leave them passive and without means of defense against either criminals, foreign invaders, or their own government.
Progressives equate guns with violence, while advocating abortion as an acceptable “choice” which needs no rationale other than a woman’s whim. Despite the progressive proclivity to inflict violence on the unborn, they simply cannot understand the Conservative ethos of protecting life with an effective mechanism for defense. But Life and Guns are two rights, that to the moral citizen, are in complete harmony.
President Obama, just entering into his third term indicated in a press conference earlier today that he would do everything in his power to ban the products that have injured and killed ham sandwich consumers, and that he would punish the perpetrators of such reprehensible food.

It does not have to be that way, but it is and it is going to get much worse. Politicians throughout this country are testing the political winds, posturing and making speeches about how much they care about the victims of this latest round of executions at school.
As beneficent as it sounds to create showcases of collective “healing,” such public displays–complete with remarks by politicians and agendas formulated by various advocacy groups–find their true purpose in chronically opening old wounds to revive political issues. In the cases of Aurora, Newton, and Columbine, the issue is gun control.
When you consider the actions and attitudes of the Democrat majority in Colorado’s legislative bodies, it is clear that they would rather keep guns out of the hands of good people, and allow criminals access to easy prey, than take the chance that a criminal’s civil rights might be violated. Colorado’s Democrat legislators would rather protect the rights of sexual predators than enact tough laws to protect the innocence, safety, and very lives of children.
Colorado Democrats won in 2012, not on the power of their ideas, but because too many Republicans stayed home. Their hard-left ideology represents a small geographical and numerical swath, which I will call the “commie belt,” that runs like a ribbon through the center of the state.
