Origins of Gun Control Rooted in Racisim

The Times Dispatch of Richmond, VA has an excellent piece from Sunday detailing the roots of most gun control schemes.  As expected, we can see a recurring theme with how the elites of even the early civil rights days, were trying to exercise their complete and total control on one class of people; in this case it was newly freed African Americans. 

As time progressed, it was much easier to extend those laws to all citizens in an effort to control even more of the populace.  Today, it can still be noted by various studies that minorities are still the most impacted citizen class of infringing gun laws, and it will be interesting to see how the plight of those citizens changes over the next few years in a post-incorporation USA. 

Update on Fair Use Suits

Media Post Publications is reporting that a new group is not just attacking conservative online groups, but also others who are allegedly violating the essecence of fair use doctrine by reposting news articles from the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Media Post (linked here and at top of the post) is also reporting that Stephens Media, owner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal transferred it's Copyrights to Righthaven, LLC, which near as can be googled, is a law firm that is seeking to further divide the pie of capitalism.  Good old lawyers, when you're out of ways to make money, sue someone to steal it while hiding behind the law. 

The Media Post Publication also has a good explanation of The Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which is apparently the law behind these nearly baseless lawsuits.  The irony is though, it appears from further googling that Righthaven, LLC is also suing the DNC of Nevada.  Go get 'em boys, can't wait to see how that one plays out. 

Remember Your Fair Use Laws

The Las Vegas Sun is reporting that Conservative News "linking" websites are being sued over copyright infringement.

Just a MAJOR reminder to all bloggers and people out there, make sure that you ONLY excerpt, link, and give credit where it is truly due.
