Because who would even consider bearing arms to defend the homeland? Obama Removes “Bear Arms” Clause from Citizenship Oath – “The climax of the process is taking the oath of citizenship. This is the point where an individual becomes a full-fledged member of American society. For anyone going through the process, it is a momentous occasion. While it is a joy to do this, it does not come without a certain responsibility. In the citizenship oath, a person must, as part of the pledge, maintain a willingness to bear arms on behalf of the United States in defense of the homeland; certainly no small responsibility. However, the Obama administration is removing this clause from the oath, and is thus taking away a huge part of the responsibility associated with being a citizen.” This should surprise precisely no one.

What if we regulated drugs the way we regulate guns? – “The gun lobby’s logic is fatally, and tragically, flawed. By the same reasoning, we should stop requiring drug prescriptions because most people don’t abuse drugs and the system does not entirely prevent drug traffickers from selling powerful pharmaceuticals. This is, of course, pure madness, especially when you consider the methamphetamine epidemic involving nonprescription drugs and the recent crisis around the abuse of prescription painkillers.” Anyone have a Xanax?
These Members Of Congress Used Campaign Funds To Buy Guns – “More than a dozen Republican members of Congress used campaign contributions to buy guns, ammunition or tickets to gun-related events, a public interest group said Wednesday.” What’s wrong with the rest of them?
