Default Excellent Editorial: Societal ADD.

Written by: Dave Lombardo of

Editorial: Protecting our rights is apparently too much trouble.

David A. Lombardo

Our society is geared toward instant gratification and the single most
common complaint is it isn't fast enough. The only thing worse than the fact
we have a population of attention deficit disorder adults is the fact society
has convinced them their right.

Countless people are telling me how tedious it's become with respect to
Illinois concealed carry and gun ban issues. I always manage to muster up
the strength to avoid my slapping the snot out of the individual, sometimes
metaphorically; sometimes not so metaphorically. I thought I'd become the
magnet for that type of complaint until I read Richard Pearson's email blast
this week; turns out he's getting much of the same. Pearson is the Executive
Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association and one of their lobbyists in

He recently wrote, "Just today I had a member call me and ask how much
longer the ISRA was going to pester him to call his legislators about gun
control bills. My answer was, 'Until we win."

Pearson continued, "...what we are engaged in is nothing less than a good
old fashioned street fight. This is the kind of fight where - in the end - one
guy goes home while the other guy gets carted away in a box. If you and
your fellow gun owners do not stand up for what you believe in, your gun
rights will be carted away and dumped on the scrap heap of liberties
sacrificed in the name of political and social 'progress," he said.

There is a fundamental misunderstanding about what's happening both in
the Illinois State Legislature and in Congress. This fight has nothing to do
with logic or facts; it is strictly about implementing a new social order.
Modern American liberalism is about a strong federal government that takes
care of the individual from cradle to grave. But it isn't as rosy as it might
seem. It seeks to reduce, if not totally eliminate, the right of the individual
to determine what's best for him and replace it with a nanny state.

Under modern American liberalism, anything that fundamentally enslaves
the individual to the government is good. It is faulty logic that espouses the
principle that socially deviant miscreants are misunderstood and have more
rights than law abiding citizens who take personal responsibility. And a very
significant portion of that philosophy says citizens should not have the right
to defend themselves against anything and particularly not against an ever
increasing ruling class who seek to take away individual rights.

Someone took me to task, on theological grounds, for referring to our
current president as the messiah; I'm being blasphemous in their opinion. I
refer to the president with the lower case messiah who is, by definition, "A
savior or liberator of a group of people."

It is not a reference to theology but sociology and this president is precisely
that to the modern American liberal. Obama and his four horsemen of the
apocalypse are sociopaths skilled in the art of deception. They put their
finger in the wind of public opinion, change their verbiage to make it as
acceptable as possible to as many people as possible, but their goals never

In our small corner of society their goal is total disarmament: Everything,
every rifle, shotgun and handgun even as they themselves own them
because they see themselves as above the rest of society.

So the next time you want to whine about getting so many emails, letters
and calls for active participation in contacting your elected officials about
gun control issues, stop and consider you are falling prey to exactly what
they are hoping for. They want ADD to get the best of you so you'll quit
complaining. They want you to join them as latte-drinking, sushi-eating,
Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading, body- piercing, Hollywood loving,
left-wing freakazoids and forget about clinging to your guns and bible. When
that happens, brother, you can kiss conservatism and self-reliance goodbye

Great article! How do we get people to wake up! They want to cry conspiracy theory! No it is blind stupid on their part. We best be contacting every Senator and Congressman no matter what position they lend to. And let them know the normal tax paying Americans are fed up with the governments performance and attacks on our rights and mad as Hell! As it has been said! We are at a point there should be "No More Mr. Nice Guy.

The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
