The Blunt Truth About The Second Amendment

George Mason University economics Professor Walter Williams has the following blurb on his home page. I thought that was so cool that I wanted to give him a hearty "Summa Cum Laude" in "this corner."

"Wisdom of the Month

'Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.'

* Noah Webster, *1787 - An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, Pamphlets on the Constitution of the United States, Ford (29)."

This subject of dealing with the standard lib (fascist - socialist) lies about the Founders' alleged intent that "government" have a monopoly on force in America deserves, and will receive, far more detailed and documented treatment elsewhere on this website as its content is regularly added.

For today, I just wanted to give Dr. Williams a quick round of applause before I stepped out for lunch: Walter Williams rules, Jesse Jerkson drools!
