Today, Barack Obama laid out his vision of gun control, with the families of the Sandy Hook tragedy and several children as his props. So how ironic the following was in my email INBOX:

““The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of
the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of
the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty
and almost any deprivation.””

What a great thought. We will give up our liberties for our children. Perhaps then, it is disturbing the origin of this quote:

–Mein Kampf, by Adolf Hitler [Publ. Houghton Miflin, 1943, Page 403]
