  •  Matt, what a great piece! It captures more than (0+ / 0-)

    all the discussions and pie fights we have had about giving up some rights and balancing some rights versus others.

    Sadly the irony is lost to many that to preserve a "sacred freedom" we must sacrifice all others; it kind of reminds me of Vietnam: "we had to burn the village in order to save it.".

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

    •  Well get this: The Pen is mighter than the sword (0+ / 0-)

      Especially if the pen wrote a US Army technical manual titled "Improvised Munitions Handbook".  Created back during the Cold War when we were training terrorist...er Freedom Fighters.   Widely available on the Internet.
      Unless you want to ban the First Amendment as well.

      You can ban every gun in existence and you are still going to have massacres if some moron is willing to die.  As I noted above, the schools were just as vulnerable 100 years ago --but we didn't have so many sick sonsabitches, for some reason.

      We need to protect the schools, the teachers and the kids.  Now.
