Will Gun Control Work?

The Premise of gun control is that outlawing all guns means that the law breakers will have no access to any guns. Some surmise that if we made all guns illegal in the entire world, the bad guys would not be able to get any guns at all. Problem Solved! Or is it?

My neighborhood has been declared as a "Drug Free Zone." There is even a yellow street sign to prove it (or remind everybody?). Yet, a house in this same neighborhood was found to be a Meth lab. To my knowledge, this drug is not legal in any part of the country. Not just the city. Not just my home state. But the entire country. And they were making the drugs here.

May I go another step further? Crime is illegal in this country, yet it still happens. Why? Because there are people that choose to NOT obey those in authority for anything.

Gun control laws don't disarm criminals. They only disarm law abiding citizens. Criminals know this. And even if the criminal does not have a gun, he/she knows that their victims do not either. Virginia Tech was advertised as a Gun Free Zone. Perhaps the outcome would have been different if there had been some law abiding citizen there who was armed. Perhaps the outcome would have been different if the killer had NOT known that all his victims would be un-armed.

One Sheet per Sit?

Whoa! You gotta be careful when you say that. I guess that's ok if your sheet don't stink.

That was singer Sheryl Crow's joke at some global warming gathering recently, “I propose a limitation be put on how many squares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required.”

I suspect she meant it as a joke but she's gotta know that some liberal legislature is going to take her serious and try to make it a law. And when they get hold of that, they'll want us to use both sides.


But then maybe she's just trying to think outside the pot, er ... I mean box.

Resurrection Sunday 2007

Even so, come Lord Jesus.

I watched "The Nativity Story" for the first time last night. (I think Easter and Christmas are so closely tied together, I have no problem with watching Christmas Movies near Easter. Or singing Resurrection songs on Christmas.) I like how it portrayed the possible problems that Joseph and Mary had with their relationship with each other and their neighbors. And how God provides more then enough just in the nick of time.

The King of Kings and Lord of Lords delivered to man in such a meager way. God choose Joseph and Mary but He also tested them. A Bible teacher recently showed me that we read of the Biblical Saint's victories and defeats after the fact. They lived it. They were being tested when only God knew the outcome. We can learn a lot from their victories. Maybe even more from their mistakes.

God, I want to make less mistakes.

He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming quickly." Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20 NKJV)

The Speaker Speaks and Syria Laughs at U.S.

Nanny Pull-Out-See's visit to Syria was more then humiliating.

  1. She defied the President. (No big deal in the eyes of the libs.)
  2. She overstepped her Constitutional limits. (Being the Constitutional experts they are on the left, how could they miss this one? Is this part of that "living-breathing document" philosophy?)
  3. She "LIED" about what the Prime Minister of Israel said. (I guess it depends upon how you define "peace" talks.)
  4. She cavorted with a despot who supports and aids our enemies.
  5. AND, I am assuming, that she made the US taxpayers pay for this trip.

I do not see how her actions shows her support for our troops. I think she has made this world more dangerous for them and for U.S.

And it looks like it was illegal.
