From a few years ago.
Every couple years a horrendous act occurs spawning the next round of gun control measures from willing sheep throughout the nation. Dr Suzanne Gratia Hupp explains through her own experience WHY we should not have restrictions on our ability to carry and self defend.
Her 'lesson' was as tough as any others that have been received recently.
However she actually learned from it.

Promoted for Ruth Johnson mention
To anyone with whom I've been in regular contact for the past eight months or so, what I'm about to say won't come as a big surprise: My wife, Christie, is about 33 weeks pregnant.
I mention that to say this: I was with my wife in the doctor's office a couple of weeks ago, and the USA Today headline caught my eye.

Well, it almost has for me anyway. I'll be frank and to the point with this even though it smacks in the face of today's mollycoddling agenda of discussion. I honestly don't believe that the Republicans that were overwhelmingly elected to power just two months ago have grasped the core value reason that they were sent to their elected Offices. That charge was fiscal responsibility. The taking down the disastrous bird feeder mentality that has infested this once great State over the last eight years of Liberal social net spending, mythical green jobs and to create an environment conducive to business.
November 2, 2010 was a message from Michigan's electorate that bold steps of reform in Lansing is unequivocally necessary to mend the havoc endured by an unyielding, flawed Left ideology that resulted in the highest tax increases in the history of this state.
