"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

Gunwalker Scandal

. . . Is a lot more important than Wiener's wiener.

The story started circulating in the blogosphere months ago upon the death of agent Terry.  I didn't comment on it until now, because I was afraid that, like the scandal over the two border agents who got railroaded into Federal prison for shooting a drug dealing, illegal Mexican, it would just get swept under the rug and nobody would pay attention.

But when I started seeing it on blogs that don't talk a lot about 2nd amendment issues, I thought maybe there would be hope that some people would wake up to what our government is trying to pull, flagrantly allowing people to die, in the hundreds to carry out policy that would rob us of our constitutional rights.

Read the most recent stuff on it here, and then do some more research on your own.  And don't you dare tell me I should have anything BUT contempt and derision for this administration and anyone in Congress who knew anything about it and didn't blow the whistle.

I was tipped off to this most recent story by Ann Barnhardt, and I like what she has to say about it as well.  She doesn't have permalink on her site so if you are going to read her comments on it, you will need to index her post by today's date:  June 17, 2011
