Personal Liberty Digest™
Mass shootings at public schools in this country were extremely rare prior to 1995. That was the year that Congress approved the national Gun-Free School Zone Act. The assumption was that banning anyone from carrying a weapon into any of our public schools would make them safer. It didn’t. All it did was make them sitting ducks for deranged lunatics.
Don’t believe the hype from liberals or the media. The fact is: GUNS SAVE LIVES. But, every time there’s a crisis, politicians learn the wrong lesson… come up with the wrong solution… and always use the crisis as a reason to take away our freedoms and grow government bigger.

Even at Christmastime (perhaps because it’s Christmastime, because it’s a time for prayer and reflection), I think it’s important to remind you what America could become: the collision course toward disaster we are on.

December has been a tough month in the National Football League and not just because of the hard-fought games that were played by teams racing to the playoff finish line. The NFL was rocked by a gun crime, and now some around the league are advocating tougher gun laws.
The only advantage of a long, drawn-out disintegration of the overall economic system is that as the years pass, it becomes possible to discover a pattern through which we can gauge where we really stand today and will stand tomorrow.
