The New Inquisition
by L. Neil Smith
It's more than likely that old villains can't learn new tricks. But they can learn old tricks from one another, and from previous generations of villains. And now an old trick has come to what used to be the freest country in the world, imported straight from Josef Stalin's Soviet Russia—especially for the benefit of American gun owners.

"Insanity" Is Now Gun Control—Are You Nuts?
by Alan Korwin
America's largest national gun-rights groups are moving quickly to "normalize" mental health records—however defined—as a disqualifier for gun ownership. Names of disqualified people are typed by clerks into the NICS Index controlled by the FBI. The Attorney General is working to change the definition of mental health and mental disability to cast a wider net around innocent people—who used to be disqualified from gun ownership—ONLY— after a complete court hearing with lawyers, appeals, and due process. That is being erased.

Guns and Deaths, a Non-US Problem
by C.D. Michel
"America has the highest death by guns rate per capita in the world.... fact." That comment—left on a YouTube video—shows the ignorance of people not in America, and those in the Oval Office or the California state legislature. It is a persistent talking point of gun ban activists, and is adopted as fact by people predisposed to believe that (as the same fellow continued) "America is a screwed up society that has an unhealthy obsession with all things violent."

by Neale Osborn
We shall start this with a most excellent quote on the Constitution and our government. Quote of the day—Standing Wolf—The Constitution is a restraining order against the federal government. I'm not going to say a word about the effectiveness of restraining orders against criminals.

Take a look at:

We need a new Internet. The old one was more or less in the hands of Americans, so at least lip-service was given to liberty. Turning it over to a bunch of stinkin' ferriners who don't even know the meaning of the word will no doubt remove liberty from consideration in the administration of the ol' 'net. Of course, most of the actual running of the 'net is in the hand of the Internet Engineering Task Force, a bunch of mostly American geeks, so maybe nothing will change. But we should keep an eye out on 'em.

It is time for reflection on Revolution, and what better way than to pledge some of your hard-earned money to Giovanni Martelli's Independency Productions plan to put on that splendid musical 1776 in Fort Collins, Colorado. If they can raise enough money. See "Don't You Know There is a War On?" for more information, or go right to Kickstarter to lay your money down.
