    Hypocrisy?

    Am I the only one who thinks it is the very heighth of hypocrisy that those who are calling most stridently for "gun control" are those who either have 24/7 armed security for themselves and their families or, as in the case of one certain Senator, hold concealed carry permits and are known to carry?

    nope, it's painfully obvious.

    If my house has to become a gun free zone, then so should the white house. If I don't need any semi-autos to protect myself, then Mr. O does not deserve the same.

    Good ole Fine-swine has her own gun and CCW also; but she wouldn't dare let us serfs have guns!

    hypocrites...

    No. But, I don't particularly get upset about it.

    Hypocrisy seems to be a pretty common human condition; most folks are a bit hypocritical about something. I don't give it much thought anymore.

    Oh, don't pass up the chance to use it as a counter-argument. Just don't let it bother you too much.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    You are actually trying to equate your need for protection with that of the CIC? Astounding! Also, I haven't heard about any effort to make private homes gun free zones.

    Yes I am, and more importantly so is the need of our children, families, and friends. I hate to break this to you but Obama is not royalty or a god. He is supposedly a citizen like the rest of us, only he is our employee. The employers should make the rules not the employees.

    Ummm Chicago homes was a gun free zone and so was DC until SCOTUS corrected that glitch.

    I don't swear, so I'll tone it down. DARN FREAKING RIGHT I WOULD!!!! The CIC is nothing more than a person who is to lead. And not to be a conspiracy nut, but the world will go on even if he is killed. I'm not advocating any violence against any leaders at all. But no person in this country deserves MORE protection than I do by nature of their position. Bottom line, I have the right to protect my self equally to that right of the president. The president is NO BETTER human for having been elected. He is still a person and has the right to self protection. SO AM I.
