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.
I found the video in the title link entertaining and just had to share it. There are two minor problems with this film, though.
Unless she was using special ammo, bullets from that weapon very likely would have passed through the intruder and into the surrounding neighborhood, posing a threat to innocent people and property. As much fun as it would be own one of those, for urban home defense she probably would have been better off with a shotgun firing shot or a handgun firing hollowpoints or safety slugs to reduce the risk of over-penetration and background damage.
From a legal standpoint she should have probably waited another 3 seconds for the intruder to slightly breach her outer defenses before taking him down. The courts will go easier on her if there was some broken glass inside her home, or if the lock or door was damaged from the outside. This would have made for more creditable "reasonable" fear for her life if she had to deal with a jerk District Attorney. Since she received the harrassing phone call, and since the police will find the knife on his body and evidence of tampering with her home wiring, she still probaby won't have any legal problems, unless she lives in an anti-gun place like California. Given that she had a full auto weaon, chances are she was in a gun-friendly state as Class III firearm permits aren't exactly easy to obtain in anti-gun areas.
