I happened across this on Politifact.com as I was researching another topic. Politifact seems to be unbiased, but please let me know if anyone has info to the contrary.
The subject concerns a Providence City, Rhode Island council resolution claiming that semi-auto weapons were designed for military use. Another knee jerk biased resolution based on conjecture. Assuming of course that the information contained herein is accurate!
The subject heading of the article is this:
"Semi-automatic weapons, whether pistol or rifle, were designed for use by the military on the battlefield."
Providence City Council on Thursday, January 3rd, 2013 in a council resolution
Here is the link:
I'm a firm believer that the inoculation of the 2nd amendment is only a prelude to a further erosion or complete abandonment of (whats left of) the Constitution.
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

FYI - Chewy.com has 20% off Bil-Jac dog food. We just ordered two 30 pound bags.
We use the "auto-ship" feature so not sure if that is required. We are constantly adjusting the shipping schedule and my wife saw the 20%. So figured why not order two bags so don't need to worry about it for some time. We just receive a bag in about 2 weeks ago so we should be set for a while. Will throw it in a plastic storage container in the basement.
