Rand Paul stands up to Orwellian 'Patriot' Act for gun owners, all Americans

Sen. Paul's specific objection is the potential gross abuse of gun purchase records, but he would also like to open up debate about many other Constitutionally questionable (to put it politely) provisions of the Patriot Act. That law, passed in haste in the immediate aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attacks, was a victory for terrorism, because in surrendering liberty for the supposed safety provided by the new law, we left no doubt that our fear of terrorists was greater than our love of liberty.

The "Patriot" Act lessens our nation, and any effort to block its continuation is an effort to reclaim the greatness that is the legacy handed down to us by the Founding Fathers. [More]
