True America survives in the South: SC sheriff to citizens: "Carry a concealed weapon"

The Spartanburg County Sheriff is known for speaking his mind, and at a news conference on Monday, he didn't hold back his anger and frustration after a woman was attacked in a park over the weekend.
Investigators said 46-year-old Walter Lance grabbed a woman who was walking her dog in Milliken Park on Sunday afternoon. They said Lance choked the woman, made her take off her clothing and tried to rape her. (Full Story)

Wright said, "It's too bad someone with a concealed weapons permit didn't walk by. That would fix it." He said people are tired of doing the right thing and criminals getting away with their actions.
He said several times, "I want you to get a concealed weapons permit."

Encouragement for you, from the echo of LaFayette

via Western Rifles Rifle Shooters Association, a comment left by a reader of that blog.

You were once a great Nation but you ought to be proud still having free-minded living men (as far as i have been reading this discussion).

Here, in France, we are all slaves and used to be like this for a long time.
I would say most of us enjoy it, except maybe 1 out of 50000 like me.
You have so many possibilities we do not have here (great men who fought or are still fighting for liberty, guns’ laws, large territory, large human base)
Despair is your only ennemy.
Have faith.
Marquis de LaFayette, Major General of the Continental Army, and the right hand of Washington

Your rights: Unalienable or Inalienable?

Excellent exposition on Unalienable vs Inalienable Rights at DumpDC blog, by Russel Longcore; H/T to Arctic Patriot

Thomas Jefferson wrote: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain Unalienable Rights… Self-Evident. Obvious. Perhaps it was self-evident to the 18th Century common man, but I submit to you that the common 21st Century mind is not equally equipped. Much of the wisdom of the ages has been withheld from the modern man by the government schools. And why not? If you were a government, both tasked by The People to educate them and controlled by the same People, why teach generation after generation how to control you? Why not teach those generations how to be controlled? Self-evident truths bow to governmental self-preservation when The People aren’t watching vigilantly.
What a debt we today owe to Jefferson

Building a tower requires building a firm foundation FIRST…or your tower goes over when the winds blow hard. Gentle readers, we’re in a CAT 5 hurricane right now that’s going to take down our American tower. If you do not have a working understanding of unalienable rights, you’ll likely fall for the next iteration of oppressive, tyrannical government foisted upon an uneducated populace who move their lips when they read. And if you don’t truly understand this philosophy, you cannot possibly teach it to your young.

Unalienable rights are also known as Natural Law or Absolute Rights. In this article these terms will be interchangeable. Also, the use of a male pronoun or the word “man” means all humans.

We begin with a definition of “Unalienable:”
“Unalienable: incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred.”Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition, page 1523. One cannot sell, transfer or surrender unalienable rights. The Creator bestowed them on every individual. All human beings possess unalienable rights. Unalienable rights cannot be taken nor surrendered but they can be simply ignored.
