We’re NOT going to take your guns!”

N.Y.P.D. has begun sending out the following form letter to registered legal owners of (now illegal, under NY State law) firearms.

AND, there is a push in Congress for the passage of a ‘general warrants’ measure, to make it easier to search homes of legal gun owners to determine if there firearms are ‘stored safely’. (as they already do in Massachusetts!, unwarranted…)

These ‘general warrants’ were proposed by the N.S.A.(!), for the express purpose of (legitimizing actions already taken in) bulk (telephone) data collection.  You know, to keep us ‘safe’.

WASHINGTON — THE framers of the Constitution declared that government officials had no power to seize the records of individual Americans without evidence of wrongdoing, and they embedded this principle in the Fourth Amendment. The bulk collection of Americans’ telephone records — so-called metadata — by the National Security Agency is, in our view, a clear case of a general warrant that violates the spirit of the framers’ intentions. This intrusive program was authorized under a secret legal process by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, so for years American citizens did not have the knowledge needed to challenge the infringement of their privacy rights. (NYT Opinion Pages, November 25, 3013)

…Each of these proposals represents real and meaningful reform, which we believe would have fulfilled the purpose of protecting our security and liberty. Each was rejected by the committee, in some cases by a single vote. (IBID)  (emphasis Guffaw)

Nothing was mentioned about limiting governmental power of these proposed ‘safety’ measures to just wiretapping.

How many times in recorded history have governments given power back to the people, after having first usurped it?  I’ll give you a hint – NONE, without benefit of revolution.

I could probably list about 75 ‘safety’ measures taken by the government ‘for our benefit’ since ‘Dan Cooper’ hijacked a plane for ransom on my birthday in 1971, beginning the steady erosion of THE RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL CITIZEN.  But what would be the point?

I’m pretty certain most of my readers tend to agree with me on liberty issues, or they wouldn’t be my readers.  So, I’m preaching to the choir, yet again.

Do YOU see a pattern here?  I f’n DO!

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
