Scott Bergman's insight:

It damn well should, because regardless of the fact that nobody cares much about trans-fat it, once again sets another precedent, which makes it easier to take something else next time

Ron Paul: Police manhunt for Boston Marathon bombing suspect scarier than attack | Freedom and Rights in America | Scoop.it
Former Rep. Ron Paul said the law enforcement that swarmed around Boston in the days following the marathon bombings was scarier than the actual terrorist attack.
Scott Bergman's insight:

The younger generation neither understands or cares. It's a sad state of affairs in our country. As long as the younger generation can occupy their feeble minds with smartphones and video games not much else matters to them, especially freedom and rights.

This should be a demonstration of the fact that any news you get may be censored so as to manupulate your reaction. Yes, this is happening in russia, but it could easily be anyplace, including the united states.

No sooner had Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed three gun-control bills into law Wednesday than the economic backlash began.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Really glad to see Magpul carrying through with their threat. Of course it won't be long before Hickenpooper wants to raise taxes becasue revenue is low. Taxpayers, or at least this taxpayer will tell him to get bent by way of the ballot.

California Seizes Guns as Owners Lose Right to Keep Arms

California Seizes Guns as Owners Lose Right to Keep Arms | Freedom and Rights in America | Scoop.it
Wearing bulletproof vests and carrying 40-caliber Glock pistols, nine California Justice Department agents assembled outside a ranch-style house in a suburb east of Los Angeles.
Scott Bergman's insight:

This is why you do not voluntarily allow the police in your home unless you summon them, and the same reason you don't talk to them, unless you called them. You have the right to remain silence, it serves you best to use it.

Judiciary approves gun background checks - John Bresnahan

Judiciary approves gun background checks - John Bresnahan | Freedom and Rights in America | Scoop.it
The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a Democratic bill calling for background checks on all gun sales, which could potentially lead to the biggest change in U.S. gun laws in years.
Scott Bergman's insight:

“It’s sad. Right after Newtown, there was a view that maybe a place where we could all come together was background checks… This isn’t going to be a perfect bill. But it will sure reduce crimes,” Schumer said.

This isn't going to reduce squat. I don't know what drugs he's taking but I want some of them.

A Florida lawmaker wants to ban the sale of ammunition to anyone who has not completed an anger management program, a proposed solution to increased public rage that has been blasted as “laughable” by critics.

Has Watertown Made Warrantless Searches The 'New Normal'? | CNS News

Has Watertown Made Warrantless Searches The 'New Normal'? | CNS News | Freedom and Rights in America | Scoop.it
The whole notion of the police "manhunt" is not a new American phenomenon. Cops chase bad guys, cops corner bad guys.
Scott Bergman's insight:

I don't care what the circumstances were, the way the police acted by forcing people out of their homes and then searching it without a warrant was total bullshit. And it's true, now that a precedent has been set it will happen again until somebody pays to take this to the supreme court to stop it.

Connecticut state lawmakers came to an agreement Monday on what they said will become some of the nation’s toughest gun control laws.
Scott Bergman's insight:

Now we can sit back and watch the crime rates go up in Conneticut. They've done nothing to protect the innocent, they've only made it easier for criminals. Well, good luck with that. On a side note, you can bet this case will be in the supreme court next year or the year after.

This is happening in Saidi Arabia, but it demonstrates how thankful we should be for the freedom that we have. Younger people here in the United States have always had it and tend to not give freedom the respect it deserves.
