This is how they now intend to take your guns!

“Mental Illness” Diagnoses Are the Slippery Slope to Gun Confiscation

According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 20 percent of children in the United States — one out of five — has a mental disorder. Perhaps even more sobering, the latest edition of the “psychiatric Bible,” the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), claims there is more than a 50-percent chance that an American will develop a mental disorder in his or her lifetime. The CDC reported that 25 percent of adults already suffer from mental illness and affirmed the idea that the number will rise to 50 percent, as the DSM-5 predicts.
These claims are disputed, however. Dr. Allen Frances, author of the DSM-4, has challenged the claims of the new manual, specifically those concerning ADHD. Frances stated the following about the proliferation of claims of mental illness:

‘The Question Libertarians Just Can’t Answer’

Pay special attention to the comments section below this article by Tom Woods.

Here comes the old founding fathers/slave owner straw man argument again!
You know, I was born into a world of heavy confiscatory taxation and wealth re-distribution and as such I am an actual participant. I believe this to be an evil scourge and work for its eradication.
Yet, I see someday that when this scourge is abolished there will be people who will look back at me and discredit my ideas because I participated in this evil.
The founding fathers were born into a world where slavery existed and they participated. At the same time, they put forth the groundwork to rid the world of this scourge without actually accomplishing it in their lifetime, which is unreasonable to expect.
The founding fathers who owned slaves did much to advance freedom and future libertarian principles. Ironic, though, that two of the founding fathers mentioned who did not own slaves (Hamilton and Adams) did more to retard freedom and actually were the promoters of statism, centralization and the federal thievery that haunts us today.

Colorado Voters get serious about the gun grabbers

Colorado Recall: “When you come after our guns, we’re going to take you out.” - 

A Colorado lawmaker who championed some of the strictest gun laws in the country is now facing a possible recall after concerned citizens turned in twice the needed petition signatures to initiate the states first ever recall election.
Democratic Senate President John Morse sponsored the new gun laws in Colorado and originally backed an even stricter law that would have made gun owners liable for damage caused by their weapons. Because of this citizens within the state have risen up and are set to possibly remove him from office.
