OT: NATO said to be confiscating the guns of Serb civiliansgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
I don't have much to say here. I know nothing first hand of the situation.
In my car I heard a caller to Rush Limbaugh say that he saw on the news last night that NATO is confiscating the guns of Serb civilians (leaving them defenseless against the returning ethnic Albanians/Muslims).
This appears to me to be evidence (as if we needed any) that the Clinton administration does not consider the right enumerated in the Second Amendment to be a God-given inalienable right as discussed in the Declaration of Independence.
IMHO, the US government should not be depriving others of liberties our own founding documents declared to be God-given.

be careful about accepting anything you hear on Rush Limbaugh,he's just as big a liar as clinton,nixon,kenedy,or any other politition with an agenda,although Rush is particulary obnoxious in the way he peddles his crap to the common man

Why should "Slick" believe in "God-given inalienable rights"? Do you actually think that he even believes in God?
He might, but if he does, he's sure as Hell not afraid of Him! If he does believe, he surely thinks that God is a Republican!
I tell you, our "prez" has a mind like a steel trap! (The gas trap under a toilet comes to mind. . .)

After bombing the hell out of them for several weeks, taking thier guns away (if true and I have no reasone to doubt) seems like and expected course of action.
I would be interested to have someone point out the last time this administration did ANYTHING that moved in the direction of individual constitutional freedoms and away from "big" governament. So why does one more restrictive action come as a suprise?

please don't ask for links cuz I don't have them. I have read (net and paper) that NATO is also taking guns from Albanians. In our local paper (buried in page 3) today - mentioned more of the same.
so (IMHO) I don't think that just the Serbs are being targeted.
