Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."
This story (and I do mean STORY) about "Kentucky's new gun law" is getting dumber with every retelling as each new TV and newspaper rewrites it to be more salacious. Gutshot and I are old enough to remember when the news was actually journalism, where facts were at least somewhat important. Now, it seems that facts are inconveniences to be avoided when advancing an agenda and selling advertising.
I tried to post some facts under the WCPO story, but the page refreshed and my text was wiped clean. It's just as well, as I don't have a Facebook account so I couldn't sign in, and any facts posted over there would be pearls before swine.
I know not to underestimate incompetence, but can the media really be this clueless? Could this be the media spin to portray KRS 65.870 in a negative light, as some sort of secret law hurriedly passed by gun nuts while nobody was watching? Cue the shrill cry of "won't somebody puhleeeese do something, for the children!"
Shame on the proprietor of the local gun store and gun range for being so clueless. He should be more interested in gun rights and more informed... but that's apparently true of 95% or more of gun owners. I'm getting very frustrated with gun owners scrambling around lately like spooked sheep, stampeding into panic buying before they can't get guns and ammo anymore. If 10% of that time was spent calling their legislators and explaining the concept of unalienable rights to them, the 2013 gun ban legislation would be gone like a bad dream the next morning.
Buy rice. Buy beans. Buy guns. Buy ammo.
This is your final SHTF warning.
