Afghan Man Faces Death Penalty Because He Converted to Christianity

And so what, right? What business is it of ours? When did the U.S. become the policeman to the world?

Well, we certainly are not that. But the leaders of all nations negotiate and discuss matters within the apparent sovereign control of other nations. And since 1998, intervening on behalf of the persecuted around the world has been the official U.S. policy--whether Presidents like it or not.

Ray Nagin Robs Citizens of Both Guns and 2nd Amendment Rights.

Do you believe in the Second Amendment?
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,
the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

If you support the Second Amendment, you are part of a shrinking population. Law professors, law students, and liberals of every stripe have been disparaging the right to bear arms for years. Possessing arms is presently illegal in Washington D.C. and other cities. But New Orleans has taken the destruction of a fundamental freedom to a new level:

Officers of Sin City went around after Hurricane Katrina and forced law-abiding citizens to surrender their firearms.

Outrageous or justifiable, what do you think?

(I won't keep you in suspense. I think it's ludicrous. Never do the people need their guns more than when the city is destroyed and law enforcement is nill.) I posted a few other thoughts here.
