    Real Title: Rifle-building parties mix burgers and beer with a chance to sidestep gun laws by building your own weapon.

    My Comments: This is another Anti-gun skewed attack article in the press, but is interesting. It just blows the Progressive Liberal Minds that we should be able to defend ourselfs with operable and high caliber firearms. As for me, I just call friends to get what I need. And I don't want or need much.

    ......Thatís because there is no law prohibiting Americans from making their own firearms for personal use, explains Alan Gottleib, founder of the Seattle-based Second Amendment Foundation.

    "People get together to build their own rifle, so to speak. They buy the parts, they sit down together, and they assemble them," he said. "Of course the way the laws are written, if youíre making a gun for your own use and itís not commercial, thereís no law against that."

    ......"The thought is just horrific," said Elliot Fineman, CEO of the National Gun Victims Action Council in Chicago. "You canít allow people to walk around with deadly weapons and not expect to have the statistics that we have, which is the highest level of gun homicide and gun-related crime in the developed countries."

    Among Finemanís concerns is how anyone would be able to screen attendees at a build party for potential dangerous felons or even terrorists.

    "You have all these hate groups, and ... these people right now can arm themselves with AK-47s. These people are nuts. I donít want them armed with AK-47s," he said.

    It doesn't take much to disturb the flock and there is nothing I can do about it.

    Unfortunately that liberal drivel resonates with approximately half the electorate. Here's another recent article in a left leaning rag:

    Burgers? Beer? Guns? With the exception of their being no cocaine, money, or hookers involved I thought it was going to be another article about scandalous back door government deals in Chicago? I like burgers, beer, and guns. I don't like Chicago politicians. Now... Does that make me bad... Or... Do I have an I.Q. over 30?

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    IMO, that's a deliberate distortion, mistaking correlation with causation.

    Yes, we have high gun ownership rates. What we do NOT have, however, is high gun carrying rates. Thus, a pathetic percentage of citizens walking around "out there" are armed and capable of effectively defending themselves against violent crime. And so, felons know this, and the keep plying their trade ... violent felonies against the largely unarmed.

    The truly sad thing is, many of these liberty-hating fools don't know this, opting instead to merely parrot what they've heard or been told, believing we're such a unique place, so violent and unrefined. Well, we're unique alright. We're about the only major industrialized power on the planet to both given practically zero attention to defensive education, zero attention to mental health, extremely low consideration for the ramifications of low rates of carrying the means of one's own defense, and the turnstile approach to a legal system (nee "justice" system). What else would we end up with besides a large and growing felonious population who know for a fact they're highly unlikely to meet armed victims, let alone armed victims capable of withstanding being preyed upon?

    His thinking is a little short of "fine," I'd say.

    Short of violation of everyone's liberties and obliteration of the Constitution's protections for all citizens, there is no way to "pre-crime" the whole thing. Fact is, felons can acquire weaponry from a dozen different sources, all off the radar, all unseen and untracked, all of which fail to even tie the felon to the weapon in question. There's no real way around that, no matter how much people scream about it.
