Residents of the High River area of Alberta, Canada, who had already been evacuated from their homes for more than a week were further angered Thursday when it was announced that the Mounted Police were seizing firearms from evacuated homes.
The Mounties claimed they had urgent need to enter each of the homes, and they further said that they only seized guns that were stored unsafely in plain sight.
“We just want to make sure that all of those things are in a spot that we control, simply because of what they are,” said Sgt. Brian Topham. “People have a significant amount of money invested in firearms … so we put them in a place that we control and that they’re safe.”
Officials say the guns will be returned once the evacuation order is lifted — provided residents can provide proof of ownership.
The whole situation seems a little convenient.
You have to wonder what “urgent need” would require officials to forcibly enter evacuated homes and search for firearms. You might also wonder why the authorities didn’t simply patrol flooded areas and guard against looters if they were worried about residents’ property.
Then there’s the likelihood that not every resident will be likely to have proof of ownership of guns taken from their homes. People inherit firearms, and sometimes they just don’t keep records.
“Now what they’re doing is looking for firearms and ammunition. How do they have the right to do that? What does that have to do with the disaster? … This is martial law. What has happened to our country?” business owner Brenda Lackey asked the Globe and Mail.
The evacuees are already angry at what they view as an incompetent government that has not allowed them to return to their homes and deal with flood damage. Late this week, some had threatened to break through barricades keeping them from their property.
At one such barricaded road, a police official tried to convince residents the evacuation was for their own good. One member of the crowd shouted, “Are we children? We’re adults!”
That’s a liberal government for you. It has to control everything because it views the public as children, especially when it comes to issues like gun control.
In the liberal state, it’s you who can’t be trusted.

Black American Leadership Alliance Outspoken Against Immigration Bill
By GJWHG / 28 June 2013 / 9 Comments
FOLLOW GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE GUNS ON FACEBOOK!
The passage of the Senate’s Immigration Bill will not deter the mission of the Black American Leadership Alliance (BALA) and its coalition partners.
The Senate passed their version of a immigration bill yesterday by a 68-32 vote, sending it to the House of Representatives, where Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said it would not be considered in lieu of the House’s own version.
The BALA told Breitbart News that will continue to oppose any immigration bills:
that don’t include border security measures first
that offers a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegals in the nation
that have not been read by Congress before its passage (as with the Senate Bill); or
that put political and corporate interest ahead of those of the American people and workers
As put to Breitbart News, BALA and its coalition partners want to know how President Obama and members of Congress can consider a speedy passage of a pro-amnesty immigration bill for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrations at the time, when an estimated 22 million Americans remain among the long term unemployed. BALA is also demanding answers from Black elected officials and leaders who have remained mostly silent on the issue at a time when 1 out of 7 blacks are currently out of work as the jobless recovery drags on. These officicals are fully aware that this bill will flood the American labor force at the expense of jobless minorities, who can no longer support their families at this time.
Gang of Eight? More Like Gang of Snakes
By Mark Mayberry / 28 June 2013 / 34 Comments
There is a lie that is permeating within recesses of our beloved Republican Party. It is a lie that is certainly going to end political careers in the very near future. What is this lie you ask? It is that if we swallow amnesty for illegal aliens that they are going to stop being big government minorities and vote for our guy.
This supposed “Gang of Eight” bill is a nightmare and it is a nightmare for many reasons. The first is that it is being filled with an ever-widening amount of amendments that amount to nothing more than amnesty and money for young people and those who have disregarded our sovereignty and spit in the face of our rule of law.
When this column is finished many of you will most likely comment below that I am a racist or that I am bigot and some of you may even cap it off with a nice liberal sentence like, “Mark, no human being is illegal.” So, instead of talking to each and every person who leaves me this comment this is what I am going to say: The facts in this column are solid and I encourage you to check them out. I don’t apologize for these facts or that I have told them to you; if you are waiting for me to cry and beg for forgiveness like Paula Dean, tune back in when hell freezes over.
Let’s start by looking at this thing by the numbers. How many immigrants are we talking about here? Roughly 11million people will be given amnesty. To give you an idea: Latino immigrants hold a 50-1 advantage over European immigrants. We take in ten times as many people from El Salvador as we do from Australia. So the idea that wanting to seal the border in order to balance out our racial make up in this country isn’t racist, it’s just smart. We have more Latino immigrants than we know what to do with now, why would we welcome more?
On to the Republican Party “expanding” it’s base to include Latinos. Well, first of all it’s important to understand that, in the last polling, Latinos made up a mere 8.4% of the electorate. Only 48% of eligible Hispanic voters turned out to the polls. So, I guess Marco Rubio and John McCain think we should sell our souls and our party down the river for eight percent of the vote? That’s eight percent if we got lucky and won them all over!
Finally, there is a provision in this bill that would allow certain crimes to be ignored if committed by one of these illegal aliens. The crimes range from domestic violence to tax fraud to identity theft. If you or I were to commit these crimes we would be spending some time in the big house.
Speaking of the big house, a lot of these “undocumented Americans” seem to have quite a persuasion for violent crime. According to Pew, forty percent of all persons sent to federal prisons in 2007 were Hispanics. Three quarters of them are here illegally. One third of these convictions were drug related offenses while close to ten percent were for other crimes, particularly violent ones.
What we must not fail to miss is that these people are coming here illegally and undocumented from what is the most violent place in the Western Hemisphere. According to Stop The Drug War, since the drug wars began in 2006, 70,000 people have been killed in Mexico, a number matching the civil war zone in Syria. Yet the Gang of Eight thinks that only the nice Mexicans are sneaking into America.

Note – I reposted an old video of an interview with Ted Nugent on the 2nd amendment below this “X”
NOTE – While biblically okay, those who would prefer to be martyred rather than eliminate vermin that prey on the innocent, will not want to view either of these videos.
A security camera (no audio) captures an armed carjacker’s attempt to steal an automobile. The owner is also armed and fires several shots at the assailant. This thief won’t be stealing automobiles or hurting people anymore.
“The Second Amendment of our Bill of Rights IS my concealed weapons permit – Period.”
With our Government wanting to sign off on the U.N. international small arms treaty, this needs to be seen, and seen again “X”
Stepping Stones to Tyranny: A History of Gun Control
by, Schuyler Montague
What would the world look like today if the Chinese never invented black powder? What would the world look like today if the first hydrogen atom was never split?
What might have been, could have been or should have been doesn’t really matter at this point. The proverbial genie was let out of the lamp many centuries ago… and all that matters now… is, where do we go from here?
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
There is little greater that separates us from the rest of the world than those words right there. The rest of our freedoms are shared with many nations, but the right of the people to keep and bear arms is that which sets us apart. Our insightful forefathers knew that, just as they required that right themselves to acquire our republic, we would one day require it ourselves to keep it secure. Not necessarily secure from a foreign invader, but secure from the enemy within. What part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand? Oh, they understand it very well. They understand, that all that stands between us and tyranny are those hallowed words. They understand as we do, that the second amendment ensures all the rest.
Today in America, there is a liberal constituency that have disillusioned themselves into thinking that we would somehow be safer without guns. They believe that all murders would end and suddenly utopia would wash up on our shores and everyone will sing kumbaya. Well, nothing could be further from the truth. You see, the act of murder is not begot from a gun but it’s born from the heart of a man. Long before those Chinese alchemists accidentally stumbled upon black powder, murder existed. Whether it was by the stone or by the sword, murder long predates the gun. If every firearm was removed from the planet today, there would still be murder tomorrow. Whether it be by the sword of the Arab, the noose of the Persian or knife in the kitchen sink.. death will not cease to exist.
If the liberals really want to save lives, they should focus their efforts on the heart of man. They should concentrate their efforts on enforcing the laws on the criminal instead of forcing their agenda on the innocent. Especially since criminals do not obey the gun laws now, so why would they once our rights are taken away?
So, what would an America with no second amendment look like? If we, the citizens of the republic allowed this right to be taken from us today, to what nation tomorrow would we awake? In order to gain a greater understanding of that future, first we must look to the past. Many nations have already walked that path, so let’s see how that worked out for them, shall we?
One of our readers sent us the following:
(Excerpted from: Gun Control Vanity by, RC one)
1—–Nazi Germany established gun control in 1938 enabling the government to round up 13 million defenseless Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, mentally ill and impaired human beings, imprisoning them in concentration camps, and by a conscious process of attrition, destroyed them.
2—–The Turkish Ottoman Empire established gun control in 1911, proceeding then to exterminate 1.5 million Armenians from 1914 – 1917.
3—–The Soviet Union established gun control in 1929. Subsequently from 1929 – 1953, 60 million dissidents were imprisoned and then exterminated.
4—–China. Gun control laws were enacted in 1935. Between 1948 – 1952, 20 million Chinese, unable to defend themselves, were likewise murdered.
5—–In the United States the first gun control laws were enacted during the Civil War era to prevent guns from falling into the hands of black slaves who might be inclined to attack their masters and thereby keeping control in the hands of the latter.
6—–Guatemala. Gun control laws were passed in 1964: as a result, between 1964 – 1981, 100,000 defenseless Mayan Indians met their deaths.
7—–Uganda. Established gun control measures in 1970. Predictably, from 1971 – 1979, 300,000 defenseless Christians met a similar fate.
8—–Cambodia. Established gun control measures in 1956, subsequently from 1957 – 1977 one million Cambodians met their deaths.
The following is the expanded version with pictures and some interesting supporting links:
Armenians being marched off to the death camps.
In 1938, Germany enacts gun control laws which were targeted squarely at the Jews. Between 1939 and 1945, 13 million Jews and other undesirables were rounded up and exterminated by the German government.
Adolph Hitler’s own thoughts on gun control:
“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”
China establishes gun control in 1935. From 1949 to 1975, 50-60 million Chinese citizens are exterminated by the Chinese government lead by the infamous Mao Zedong.
The soviet Union, under Joseph Stalin, made use of existing gun laws to ensure that his extermination of some 60 million people went smoothly.
The first Soviet gun controls were imposed during the Russian Civil War, as Czarists, Western troops, and national independence movements battled the central Red regime. Firearm registration was introduced on April 1, 1918.  On August 30, Fanny Kaplan supposedly wounded Lenin during an assassination attempt; the attempted assassination spurred a nationwide reign of terror.  In October 1918, the Council of People’s Commissars (the government) ordered the surrender of all firearms, ammunition, and sabres.  As has been the case in almost every nation where firearms registration has been introduced, registration proved a prelude to confiscation. Exempt from the confiscation order, however, were members of the Communist Party.  A 1920 decree imposed a mandatory minimum penalty of six months in prison for (non-Communist) possession of a firearm, even where there was no criminal intent. 
After the Red victory in the Civil War, the firearms laws were consolidated in a Criminal Code, which provided that unauthorized possession of a firearm would be punishable by hard labor.  A 1925 law made unauthorized possession of a firearm punishable by three months of hard labor, plus a fine of 300 rubles (equal to about four months’ wages for a highly-paid construction worker). 
Stalin apparently found little need to change the weapons control structure he had inherited. His only contributions were a 1935 law making illegal carrying of a knife punishable by five years in prison and a decree of that same year extending “all penalties, including death, down to twelve-year-old children.” 
Uganda established gun control in 1970 (Firearms act of 1970- This legislation made legal ownership of firearms more difficult than the pre-existing 1956 British colonial legislation through an expanded system of firearm registration and prohibitive licensing. It also banned a wide range of firearms. Civilian ownership of firearms, already low in Uganda, appears to have been virtually eliminated (Simkin, et al., 1994, pp.285-289). Between 1971 and 1979, 300,000 Christians are rounded up and exterminated by the government of Idi Amin.
Cambodian gun control was a legacy of French colonialism. A series of Royal Ordinances, decreed by a monarchy subservient to the French, appears to have been enacted out of fear of the Communist and anti-colonial insurgencies that were taking place in the 1920s and 1930s throughout Southeast Asia, although not in Cambodia.  The first law, in 1920, dealt with the carrying of guns, while the last law in the series, in 1938, imposed a strict licensing system.  Only hunters could have guns, and they were allowed to own only a single firearm.  These colonial laws appear to have stayed in place after Cambodia was granted independence. The Khmer Rouge enacted no new gun control laws, for they enacted no laws at all other than a Constitution. 
Cambodia was a poor country, and few people could afford guns.  On the other hand, the chaos that accompanies any war might have given some Cambodians the opportunity to acquire firearms from corrupt or dead soldiers. There is no solid evidence about how many Cambodians, with no cultural history of firearms ownership, attempted to do so. 
As soon as the Khmer Rouge took power, they immediately set out to disarm the populace. One Cambodian recalls that:
Eang [a woman] watched soldiers stride onto the porches of the houses and knock on the doors and ask the people who answered if they had any weapons. “We are here now to protect you,” the soldiers said, “and no one has a need for a weapon any more.” People who said that they kept no weapons were forced to stand aside and allow the soldiers to look for themselves. . . . The round-up of weapons took nine or ten days, and once the soldiers had concluded the villagers were no longer armed, they dropped their pretense of friendliness. . . . The soldiers said everyone would have to leave the village for a while, so that the troops could search for weapons; when the search was finished, they could return. 
People being forced out of villages and cities were searched thoroughly, and weapons and foreign currency were confiscated.  To the limited extent that Cambodians owned guns through the government licensing system, the names of registered gun owners were of course available to the new government
What do all of these Cambodians have in common? They were unarmed and they were killed by their radical left wing government.
More recently, In Rwanda during the 1990s, some 800,000 unarmed Tutsis were slaughtered by the new Hutu government. It is interesting to note that most of the murders were committed with machetes. More interesting than that, however, is the fact that communist China supplied the Hutus with 581,000 machetes in 1993 BUT Even more interesting than that is that the former Secretary General of the United Nations, one Boutros Boutros-Ghali, facilitated the arms deals with the Hutus, the deal that facilitated the genocide. In 1990, then Minister of Foreign Affairs of Egypt, Boutros-Ghali, facilitated an arms deal which was to result in $26 million worth of mortar bombs, rocket launchers, grenades and ammunition being flown from Cairo to Rwanda and then used to perpetrate a genocide a few years later. China. The UN. Gun control. Genocide.
Made in China
Rummel defines democide as “the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder”
His research shows, further, that the death toll from democide is far greater than the death toll from war. After studying over 8,000 reports of government-caused deaths, Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six times as many people have died from the inflictions of people working for governments than have died in battle.
Bottom line, statistically speaking, you are much more likely to be killed by your government than by a gun wielding maniac in a theater especially if you have allowed your government to disarm you. It should be obvious to you after reading this, that it has primarily been radical left wing socialist/communist governments imposing gun control and then perpetrating genocide against select members of the newly disarmed populace. It is also worth mentioning that gun registration typically precedes these events. It ought not be surprising to you that the leftists of this country are the ones pushing for gun control in the name of preventing crime despite an abundance of evidence that shows that gun control does not prevent crime. Further, it should come as no surprise that registration of long guns is increasingly being touted as a “reasonable” gun control legislation. Sales of assault rifles ending up in the hands of Mexican cartels was, in fact, to be the just cause for this incremental step towards subjugation of the free men and women of America. Luckily, their machinations were sufficiently exposed and thus foiled. They know what they’re trying to do. They do have an agenda. They do intend to disarm this country one way or another. Remain vigilant my friends. Not one step backwards. Ever forward. The life you save may be your own.
