Woman Tasered for Opposing Illegal Search

Another woman tasered, another illegal search—just another day in our police state with our compliant neighbors. Here’s the situation… Border checkpoints aren’t just for the border. They are for any road anywhere within a hundred miles of any border. That, in case you didn’t know, means two thirds of the population of the United States can be stopped and questioned for driving on local roads.

No matter how much politicians pretend to be offended by “assault rifles,” one fact remains undeniable: they really aren’t that dangerous to the regime. Frankly, the moment we allowed “them” to have a monopoly on rocket launchers and automatic weapons, we more or less gave up the real reason for the Second Amendment.
