TBR Pot smoking laws have failed, police can't possibly stop people from smoking pot. But what has been effective is employers drug testing of potential and currant employees. Make pot legal, let them smoke, but State DOT and licensing should be allowed to do random drug tests, along with employers. Between losing their jobs and drivers license, no police presence is necessary. Then cops can concentrate on more important matters.

I always find it interesting regarding people's interpretations of the Constitution.

Generally, conservatives are strict constructionists. That you can not imply anything from the wording of the constitution, but must interpret the document based on the wording of the document.

Somehow, this does not apply to the Second Amendment. In this case, the implication is clear that we should all be armed in order to overthrow the government, even though no such wording exists.

I have no problem if you want to have guns. Have as many as you want.

It's like people saying hemp should be legal because it makes good rope. No, you want hemp legal because you like to smoke pot.

Flame away...

A fishing trip sounds great. If Claire is the bait I'll nibble and nibble and nibble

I'm starting a special shark fishing charter for liberals. But I'm afraid the animal activists may get mad at me for poisoning the sharks.

The Second Amendment is primarily about tyranny and self-defense, not hunting. The Founding Fathers wanted us to be able to defend ourselves from our own government, if need be, and from all threats to our lives and property. Second Amendment rights belong to individuals, not cities or states. I oppose gun control based on geography. I consistently opposed banning assault weapons and opposed the Brady Bill. As Governor, I protected gun manufacturers from frivolous law suits. I was the first Governor in the country to have a concealed handgun license.

No candidate has a stronger, more consistent record on Second Amendment rights than I do. Our Founding Fathers, having endured the tyranny of the British Empire, wanted to guarantee our God-given liberties. They devised our three branches of government and our system of checks and balances. But they were still concerned that the system could fail, and that we might someday face a new tyranny from our own government. They wanted us to be able to defend ourselves, and that's why they gave us the Second Amendment. They knew that a government facing an armed populace was less likely to take away our rights, while a disarmed population wouldn't have much hope. As Ronald Reagan reminded us, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction." Without our Second Amendment rights, all of our other rights aren't inalienable, they're just "on loan" from the government.

Other candidates say gun control doesn't affect hunting. Now I'm a very avid hunter, but the Second Amendment isn't really about hunting. It's about tyranny and self-defense. The Founding Fathers weren't worried about our being able to bag a duck or a deer, they were worried about our keeping our fundamental freedoms.

I once saw a bumper sticker that said, "Criminals prefer unarmed victims." Criminals will always find a way to get guns. By disarming our law-abiding citizens, we take away the strongest deterrent to violent criminals - the uncertainty that they don't know who is helpless and who is armed. Our law enforcement officials can't be everywhere, all the time. Lawfully-armed citizens back them up and prevent robberies, rapes, and the murder of innocents. Right after Katrina, with law enforcement non-existent, many victims were able to protect their lives, their homes, and their precious supplies of food and water only because they were armed.

Other candidates believe gun control should be determined geographically, but Second Amendment rights belong to individuals, not cities or states. Your Second Amendment rights don't change when you change your address.

Other candidates filed frivolous law suits against gun manufacturers. When I was Governor, I protected gun manufacturers from exactly those types of suits. I allowed former law enforcement officials to carry concealed handguns and removed restrictions on concealed handgun permit holders. I was the first Governor in the country to have a concealed handgun license, and of course I'm a lifetime member of the National Rifle Association.

Other candidates have supported banning assault weapons. When the federal ban on assault weapons expired in 2004, I said, "May it rest in peace." It won't be returning in the Huckabee Administration.

Zealously protecting your Second Amendment rights is another way that I will lift all law-abiding Americans up, by consistently championing your right to defend yourself.

Well Joe Biden is out so that keeps the Second Amendment a little safer for the moment.

It's sad when a swing site has a waiting period for "Big Guns!"
