An expression of personal freedom designed to educate people about the meaning and importance of freedom and personal responsibility. Topics will include current events, historical analysis, gun control and firearms rights, education, politics and more. I write in support of freedom lest darkness fall upon our society in the form of dwindling rights, apathy and oppression.
I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

Books I Am Reading
A Feast For Crows This latest installment of Gearge R. R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series isn't quite as gripping as the previous books but is still a pretty good read.
Phantom Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.
Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed A follow up to Guns, Germs, and Steel that explains the geographic, environmental and socio-economic reasons that can cause civilizations and communities to collapse.
The title link is to an interesting Guardian Unlimited Article on gun control issues. It lists a brief summary of gun control legislation, and follows up with various state laws that have recently passed or are being considered. Here's an excerpt:
Violence hasn't subsided this year, from courthouse shootings in Atlanta and Tyler, Texas, to the school killings at Red Lake, Minn., the most deadly since Columbine. But the reaction has spurred something far different, drawing on the idea that if the victims had weapons they might not be victims.
``At the scene of these crimes, despite all the good intentions of the police, the prosecutors, the courts, the judges - they're all coming in later,'' said Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association. ``The country as a whole is taking another look, across the board, at the idea that maybe it makes good sense to allow people to protect themselves in as many situations as possible.''
Although I don't think the overall statistics support the author's claim that "Violence hasn't subsided this year", the article does address the fact that many people throughout the U.S. are considering the benefits of firearms for self defense. It's encouraging to see how many different states are seeking to expand firearms ownership and self defense rights for the average citizen.
