    A friend of mine brought this up to me this morning. I thought this was good brainfood.

    "Interesting question. This [health care] bill "created a right" to health insurance. Therefore they are going to mandate that everyone purchase health insurance or pay a fine. If the Supreme Court rules that the Federal Government can compel a citizen to make a purchase to exercise this "right" then why can't the government compel a citizen to exercise other rights? The 2nd Amendment is a right, why can't the government compel every citizen to purchase a gun or pay a fine?"

    I see good old Brady being forced to buy a 1911 and it makes me laugh.
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." -John Stuart Mill

    There's nothing stopping them, but how would arming citizens further the cause of socialism and a nanny state?

    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?
