Don’t Look Now, But America Is a Tyranny
Bill Quick

Student EXPELLED for forgetting to leave his hunting gun at home | The Daily Caller

Zero tolerance strikes again, with a vengeance: A Maryland high school expelled a well-behaved 18-year-old student who accidentally brought a shotgun onto school property because he left it in his car after returning from a hunting trip.

The student, 18-year-old Patrick Bryan Mitchell, was expelled from South River High School. He was also arrested by county police and received a mugshot. He is barred from possessing a gun for a year.

He missed his senior lacrosse season, several weeks of school, and his chances at an athletic scholarship to Pfeiffer College were crushed. He was forced to drop out of two Advanced Placement courses, and has attempted to keep up with his studies by enrolling in online classes.

This is just a symptom of the real problem, which is that America has become, through every fault of its own, an authoritarian tyranny.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. I read these stories and wonder what happened to this country. They are not punishing this kid because he made a mistake, they’re punishing him because he is an evil gun owner. Where are the citizens of the area standing up for freedom? Non existent apparently. How quickly would those administrators back down if the parents of the other kids in that school showed up to protest this?

    I can guarantee you there are genuine thugs attending this school that have been given a free pass while a nice kid is thrown out.

    We live in a country full of pussies and are getting what we deserve.

    • Yep. I’ve been reading Enjoy the Decline,, and the one thing that really sticks with me is the message of his first chapter: The re-election (not the election) of Barack Obama signalled that the decline we’ve seen has become permanent, and is not going to be stopped until we crash to the bottom.

      His point is simple: America chose Obama again, by almost the same margins, after four horrible years, which means America is buying the socialist state he’s selling.

      I suspect that’s true. It certainly doesn’t make me any more hopeful to read all the predictions about how 2014 doesn’t really matter because the Dems will come storming back in 2016. They might, but that is just further proof that America is dead, and Amerikkka is ascendant.

  2. ” The re-election (not the election) of Barack Obama…”

    Same thought I have, something along the lines of “fool me once, fool me…”.
    Of course I no longer think they’re getting fooled, they like being slaves.

    I get the feeling if the asshole ran for office again he’d be elected a 3rd time.
