Drones will be on the agenda today, as will concealed carry, with Bishop On Air on 970 WMAY, weekdays 10 to noon.
We'll start with a breakdown of the most recent concealed carry legislation that could come up for a vote today. If you missed the blog post yesterday, it's a brief analysis of a bill that's tens of pages long. Be sure you read it.
What do you think? Is it too restrictive, or just right? Be sure to get ready to sound off today with Bishop On Air--listen live and call 217-629-7970!
Then in the 11 o'clock hour, we'll talk drones.
It's not just about the four Americans the President and the DOJ now recognize killing (after it had been out in press reports for years) it's also about the countless woman and children who have been killed at wedding parties and funeral processions in countries like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen and who knows where else because it's classified. This issues is also about the absolute obliteration of other nations' sovereignty without a deceleration of war.
And for those who think that "you shouldn't be hanging with terrorists in war zones," better wake up and smell the DHS coffee--Some in congress have made open statements that the US is a war zone in the never-ending "War on Terror." The DHS and other law enforcement agencies have put returning vets, libertarians, Christians, pro-life and even pro-choice groups on lists as potential threats (http://start.umd.edu/start/publications/research _briefs/LaFree_Bersani_HotSpotsOfUSTerrorism.pdf).
We could also go on to talk about the lack of due process in drone killings, but we'll save that for the air!
