Category: 2ND AMENDMENT
Today, I’m in the proper mood (angry) to take on these imbeciles – Liberals don’t understand, or give a (omitted) for the term personal responsibility.
My father, born in 1918, grew up on a farm, and knew about gun safety; regularly employed the use of a bolt action .22 rifle in controlling vermin and even coyotes, at the age of seven. This being passed down by his father. “Society”, with their misguided sense of propriety, fails miserably to realize that we are still free from being spirited away or otherwise harmed by malcontents, because of our right to bear arms. This in spite of “O” and his damned NDAA.
They are in the same class as those bleeding hearts who fail to realize there are biblical edicts for swift use of capital punishment. Sometimes there are no “shades of grey”; only black and white. Period.
If the actions of Pol Pot, Mao Tse Tung, (F that “Zedung” stuff) Stalin, and other despots aren’t enough to make them see the dangers of Rogue Government, NOTHING will, until they become their willing victims. Of course, then it will just be too late for them. A summary of Pol Pot from http://www.history.com/topics/pol-pot:
Pol Pot (1925-1998) and his communist Khmer Rouge movement led Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. During that time, about 1.5 million Cambodians out of a total population of 7 to 8 million died of starvation, execution, disease or overwork. Some estimates place the death toll even higher. One detention center, S-21, was so notorious that only seven of the roughly 20,000 people imprisoned there are known to have survived. The Khmer Rouge, in their attempt to socially engineer a classless peasant society, took particular aim at intellectuals, city residents, ethnic Vietnamese, civil servants and religious leaders.

Imposing more and more control.
By Chris Eger, Guns.com
A New York lawmaker wants to prohibit minors under age 12 from being able to visit a gun show anywhere in the state in an effort to reduce gun violence.
The bill, introduced by state Assemblywoman Linda B. Rosenthal, a Democrat who represents the Hell’s Kitchen area of Manhattan, would bar entry to pre-teen youth to these shows with no provision allowed for those with a supervising adult.
“As the gun industry prepares a public campaign to broaden the appeal of guns, it is important that we establish reasonable age limits for admission to gun shows by children,” reads a memo Rosenthal wrote for her legislation.
“Within New York State and other areas of jurisdiction, we have myriad regulations that seek to protect minors from exposure to certain potentially dangerous situations and influences,” the memo continued. “For example, a minor is restricted from watching films or playing certain video games that portray deadly weaponry and gunplay. Currently, however, minors of any age may gain unfettered access to a gun show.”

NUMBER ONE WITH A BULLET
The USA has, by far, the highest per capita gun ownership in the world. Progressives will tell you that this is what makes America the Murder Capitol of Planet Earth. But we’re not, and in this devastatingly effective Firewall, Bill Whittle shows why the center of Gun Nut Nation is in fact one of the safest places in the world.

Austin Police Chief Says Cops Need To ‘Vet’ Gun Owners
Written by Doug Giles on December 4, 2014
After the shooting in Austin last week, our dear police chief has come up with a plan to curb future shootings, namely … tell the cops about your friends or family members who love guns. Especially if they ‘hate’ anyone. Uh, okay.
FYI, Mr. Acevedo, you don’t get to “vet” people. You exist to enforce laws – not to have people pass your little politically correct, anti-gun litmus test, as one reader wrote. Also, everyone and their dog in Texas is a gun enthusiast so … good luck.
A Las Vegas man, who had reportedly been stalking his former girlfriend for months, staged a home invasion early Friday morning and got a nasty surprise. The woman had previously moved to get away from 22-year-old Douglas Eugene Jackson, and had a restraining order in place. She had also obtained a concealed carry permit, and armed herself. When Jackson broke in, she shot twice, hitting him directly in the chest. He fled, and she called 911. A police K-9 unit later found him hiding in some nearby bushes.
The woman told the story in a post on her personal blog, entitled “I shot my stalker tonight.”
“I’m writing this staring at the mess the police left for me, in a bit of a fog. After 6 months of stalking and threats against my life my stalker finally snapped and decided to kick my door in and make good on his promise.
“Out of fear, the past month I had begun sleeping with a chair propped against my front door, to give myself a few extra precious seconds in case of emergency. I shudder to think how differently things might’ve turned out had I not barricaded the door.
“I awoke around 1:15 am to the sound of the door giving way after one kick followed by the sounds of my stalker struggling to dislodge the chair while forcing his way inside. I jumped up and grabbed the gun I’ve learned to do everything even shower with.
“I stood at the top of my stairs and fired twice. Hitting him in the chest, I hear his scream, his disbelief that I’d stood up for myself. 0 to 100 in milliseconds. I’ve never been so afraid in my life. I do not know if he is living, but I do know the police have him and that’s what helps the most.
“For months of him evading the police I began to question whether he was unstoppable. Untraceable. Houdini, he would murder me and get away with it. As of now I’m in a haze of guilt, surprise, relief and disbelief. I shook as the canines drag him out from his hiding place under a bush. I survived, where so many people do not. Holy s**t, I survived.”
Each day in this country alone, an average of three women are murdered in domestic violence by husbands or boyfriends. In this case, appropriate use of a firearm saved a woman’s life.
ALERT: You can’t fire a gun without ammo, and the government is doing everything it can to reduce the supply of ammo in the U.S. That’s why it’s important to do what this video says so you can finally have “ammo independence.”

When you were in grade school, did you ever have to write a paper on a subject you didn’t like?
Senate Democrats this week are finally realizing that liberty-loving gun owners like you are about to give them a failing grade on the Second Amendment later this fall.
So, like students the night before their essay is due, they’re slapping together a bill aimed at fooling you into thinking they care about your right to keep and bear arms.
I hope you don’t believe them. The bill is far from what it’s cracked up to be.
It’s called the “Bipartisan Sportsman Act of 2014” (S. 2363).
It’s 54-pages long and made up of table scraps of minor hunting and fishing-related bills.
But, it has very little to do with protecting your Second Amendment rights. S. 2363 could be voted on as early as this coming Monday.
In fact, Capitol Hill experts admit this is simply an attempt for vulnerable Senate Democrats like Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mark Begich (D-AK) and Mary Landrieu (D-LA) to cast a token “pro-gun” vote so they can sell it to voters this fall.
Even some weak-kneed Republicans — like Lamar Alexander (R-TN) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) — are pushing it in hopes of getting a “pro-gun” sticker and a pat on the back. Never mind the fact they just spent more than a whole year voting against and trashing your Second Amendment rights virtually every chance they got.
I hope you aren’t fooled.
This bill is simply too little too late.
Worse, this bill is loaded with pork for Obama and his radical left-wing friends.
I’m talking about a whole section dedicated for things like “habitat restoration” for “migratory birds” and other sections disguised as conservation.
There’s even a section dealing with “polar bear conservation.” Another part of this bill includes expanded federal funding for shooting ranges.
But as we’ve seen so often, increased federal funding comes with increased federal regulation and oversight.
The bill also talks about federal land usage, but it does not talk about reducing the federal government’s reign over your back yard or your favorite hunting grounds.
The very section of the bill that directs the Bureau of Land Management to open up federal land to hunting, fishing, and shooting purposes, goes on to say those activities get no priority.
In other words, “nevermind” it’s not really binding. This bill needs to be called out for what it really is . . .
. . . a cover vote. Nothing more. Now, there is one minor section of the bill that actually helps gun owners.
It’s a section that limits the EPA from regulating ammunition under the Toxic Substances Control Act.
This is an issue that needs fixing because Obama’s EPA concocted the scheme to crack down on ammunition in the first place.
But at what cost?
If these U.S. Senators really cared about stopping the Obama administration’s back-door attacks on gun owners, they would have acted on the multitude of other pro-gun proposals and bills that have been rotting away in committee over the last year.
*** How about the Veterans Second Amendment Protection Act?
This pro-gun bill would have put an end to the Obama administration’s practice of denying gun rights to our veterans returning from war. Over 175,000 of them have lost their rights so far without due process, and that number is likely to go up.
*** What about removing the “sporting purpose” test?
This pro-gun bill would have eliminated the so-called “sporting purpose” test which is being used to arbitrarily ban guns from import that Attorney General Eric Holder just doesn’t like. Senator Feinstein is trying to convince Holder and Obama to expand this sweeping gun ban without Congressional Authorization.
*** How about repealing the “Post Office Gun Ban”?
Right now there is a federal ban on carrying your concealed firearm in any post office. Senator Rand Paul offered an amendment in committee to remove this restriction. That sent Senators Begich, Pryor, Landrieu and others in to a frenzy to find a way to kill the amendment, which they did.
*** How about stopping Obama from cutting off financing for gun shops?
Right now Barack Obama is using the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to declare firearms manufacturers and dealers “high-risk” businesses. All across the country gun dealers are facing serious consequences with their banks ranging from losing their credit card processing services to having their bank accounts shut down completely.
Senator Rand Paul has proposed legislation to fix this.
NONE of these crucial pro-gun reforms are included in their half-hearted bill. Quite frankly, gun owners like you and I could write a much better gun bill standing on our heads.
You and I both know that the Second Amendment is about more than just hunting.
While this bill leaves a lot to be desired, I’m also worried there may be a scheme in the works.
You see, just two weeks ago Harry Reid said he wanted to have another vote on gun control in the Senate.
And in Washington, trick-plays are never outside of the realm of possibility.
If Harry Reid brings this bill up on Monday, they may have all of the anti-gun amendments we’ve been fighting against over the last two years waiting on stand by. I’m talking about expanded background checks and universal gun registration. And I don’t want to be caught off-gaurd.
Please take a moment to contact your U.S. Senators right now:
*** Sen. Dean Heller — (202) 224-6244
*** Sen. Harry Reid — (202) 224-3542
Urge them to OPPOSE any anti-gun amendments to S. 2363. Also, let them know this half-hearted attempt to appease gun owners is no substitute for real meaningful pro-gun reforms.
Please act today. For Freedom,
Dudley Brown Executive Vice President
