I’m not 100% in agreement with the NRA, but they are the biggest and most effective defender of our second amendment rights. I just re-joined the NRA, as well as GOA and TSRA. I recommend everyone do the same. They need help in terms of money and numbers. Special interest lobbiest are at the core of our government (unfortunately). I don’t like the game, but I don’t have a better alternative.
This came out today, and I thought he made some spot-on points:
Liberals love to play word games; changing the meaning of words and apply feelings to words that didn’t exist before. BO said yesterday: ”We cannot mistake absolutism for principle.” It was just one of many disgusting liberal bullshit remarks he made. Th article above steps through that one remark and how it relates to our Bill of Rights.
Instead of disarming the American people and giving police and prosecutors yet one more tool to throw people in prison, Obama should follow King’s advice and stop contributing to mass violence himself. These wars only perpetuate the never-ending cycle of violence.
How dare Obama tout King’s legacy today in celebration of his earth-shaking power, only to return to his office and carry out the very kind of violent hypocrisy that King so eloquently condemned?
I love the idea of Oathkeepers and urge all current and former military and police to check them out, join, and learn about the US Constitution. BUT, my feeling is most of these young men will do as they are told. That is what the training is for.
from Adam Kokesh:
Here are transcripts of the 3 meetings of the Committee on Rules at the 2012 Republican National Convention, finally made available this last weekend. The manipulation and top-down control evident in these is overwhelming. I suspect they’ll make great teaching aides.
…despite being at the center of the gun-control debate for decades, neither President Obama nor Ms. Feinstein (the author of the 1994 legislation) seems to understand the leading research on the effects of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban. In addition, they continue to mislabel the weapons they seek to ban.
The call has frequently been made that there is “no reason” for such “military-style weapons” to be available to civilians.
Brian says: The second amendment was created to ensure regular citizens (AKA the militia) could arm themselves as well as the best military. It was created to prevent any government in the US from infringing on this ability! So think for a minute what this means when government leaders are advocating citizens don’t ‘need’ these ‘military’ weapons.
Ms. Feinstein’s new proposal also calls for gun registration, and the reasoning is straightforward: If a gun has been left at a crime scene and it was registered to the person who committed the crime, the registry will link the crime gun back to the criminal.
Nice logic, but in reality it hardly ever works that way. Guns are very rarely left behind at a crime scene. When they are, they’re usually stolen or unregistered. Criminals are not stupid enough to leave behind guns that are registered to them. Even in the few cases where registered guns are left at crime scenes, it is usually because the criminal has been seriously injured or killed, so these crimes would have been solved even without registration.
Canada recently got rid of its costly “long-gun” registry for rifles in part because the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Chiefs of Police could not provide a single example in which tracing was of more than peripheral importance in solving a gun murder.
If we finally want to deal seriously with multiple-victim public shootings, it’s time that we acknowledge a common feature of these attacks: With just a single exception, the attack in Tucson last year, every public shooting in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed since at least 1950 has occurred in a place where citizens are not allowed to carry their own firearms. Had some citizens been armed, they might have been able to stop the killings before the police got to the scene. In the Newtown attack, it took police 20 minutes to arrive at the school after the first calls for help.
The Bushmaster, like any gun, is indeed very dangerous, but it is not a weapon “designed for the theater of war.” Banning assault weapons will not make Americans safer.
