GUNS: The lesson of Arizona is more guns for self-defense and the defense of others

Gun control

*** begin quote ***

Should just anyone be allowed to buy a gun?

*** end quote ***

Yes, anyone should be allowed to guy a gun.

Remember, that we have a Federal Instant Check, no one is reporting on that. Wasn’t that supposed to stop that? No one’s calling that to account. And, what about all the folks, who knew he was a “nut case” and did nothing.

The purpose of the Second Amendment is to empower the people to protect themselves from both bad people and their own government. The first thing that tyrants do is to disarm the people. Look at all the genocides in history, and the ESSENTIAL thing you’ll find is an unarmed citizenry.

The Government, which I call the Gooferment based on their track record, can’t protect you. What’s even funnier is its courts (no conflict of interest in that) have thrown out suits saying that the police have no duty to protect you. Restraining orders, “dial 911″, and the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” are gigantic examples of stupidity.

I wish no one harm, but we can’t let this incident sway us from the principle, the RIGHT to keep and bear arms in our own defense.

Think how much different it would have been if there was an armed citizenry at this incident. It may have stopped the “shooting gallery” before it started. Criminals are cowards. Victims shouldn’t be defenseless.

“Gun Control” is victim disarmament. What “gun control” should be is hitting what you aim at!

THAT’S the lesson we should take from Arizona.

GUNS: Pelosi doesn’t like “guns”

Pelosi Calls For Gun Registration, Opposes D.C. Gun Reform Legislation

In February, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) rightly rejected Attorney General Eric Holder’s call for renewing the so-called “assault weapons” ban, which expired in 2004 after Congress refused to renew it.   

However, on Tuesday, on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Pelosi said, “we [members of Congress] have to find some level of compromise” on guns. She noted that the Supreme Court, in District of Columbia v. Heller, ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to guns. But, she said, “We want them registered.”

Guess that the 3rd in line for the Presidency doesn’t understand the difference between a RIGHT and a privilege!

After “gun control” comes genocide.

… from my cold dead hands!

GUNS: Plaxico is sacrificed over “victim disarmament”

Sports of The Times
Released by Giants, Burress Loses His Football Family
By WILLIAM C. RHODEN
Published: April 3, 2009

*** begin quote ***

A few days after committing the blunder of his life last year, Plaxico Burress sat in a Giants office with a look on his face that General Manager Jerry Reese had never seen before.

Reese had seen plenty — mostly disinterested looks through all the fines and suspensions levied during the course of Burress’s four years with the Giants. The lectures all seemed to go over, under and around Burress, but never seemed to penetrate.

Then on Nov. 29, Burress crossed the line. He accidentally shot himself in the thigh in a Manhattan nightclub with an unlicensed gun he had tucked into his waistband. Burress was charged with two counts of criminal weapons possession. Worse, his recklessness incurred the wrath of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who has made the prosecution of illegal weapons possession one of his pet projects.

*** end quote ***

If we were following that worthless piece of paper (i.e., the Constitution), this would be a non-issue.

The RKBA shall not be infringed!

So, while he may have been stupid or inept, he did have a right to that gun. He did have a right to defend himself. No one addresses the reasons why football players were afraid.

While I won’t get on his jury, one can only hope he gets some “gun nuts” on the jury. Or, some one who’s read the FIJA literature.

GOVERNACIDE: Binghamton victims were un_Constitutionally disarmed.

Binghamton victims died seeking better lives

# – # – #

Glen Beck’s site doesn’t place the blame squarely on the politicians who set up the conditions necessary to allow this to happen — victims who were un_Constitutionally disarmed.

Naturally, I left a comment:

*** begin quote ***

Sorry, the Binghamton victims died because of New York State’s unconstitutional victim disarmament, aka gun control, laws. The center had no security. People rely on the “police” that are merely paper pushers. One concealed carry permit in that crowd and we would have a vastly different story. It works. Sprinkle a few “sheepdogs” in among the sheep and everyone is protected. Sorry, but it’s a fact of life. You have to protect yourself and your loved ones. Ignoring the security problem doesn’t make it go away. Even if the police were perfect; they can’t be there when the problems occur. Only a well armed citizenry can be the “police”. Take any of these mass murders and do a mental experiment. If we have, even under these draconian laws, 130 million guns in a population of 300 million, lets ASSUME that 10% of the populace chooses to arm themselves. That means that in the 14 dead, there would be one armed defender. And, in the 30 or so people in the center, there might be three armed defenders. I’m happy to give my fellow Americans — citizen or not — their right to defend their own lives. Just as I would want the same right. Glenn has a long way to go before he’s a “libertarian”. First, he has to put the blame squarely on the gooferment for setting up the conditions for this disaster, and so many others! imho!

WHICH DREW A RESPONSE:

CENTERLEFT said: “You assume that all these gun-toting, would be heros can shoot straight in the high stress situation of a crazy gunman opening fire on a crowd. That would not be my assumption. I feel I would be in as much danger from a stray bullet from a bystander. as I would be from the crazy shooter himself.

*** begin quote ***

@centerleft No I don’t assume that anyone can shoot straight under stress.

(Humorously, the police are far worse shooters than dedicated amateurs. Just check with any police range officer who will be honest or any cun club open event. It’s scary that we give these people guns. That’s where you should be afraid!)

My assumptiona dn hope is that just the threat of “sheepdogs” mixed in with the sheep will dicourage any would be gun man. There have been several examples of gunman being shot while they reloaded by an armed bystander.

The point is that the police can’t be everywhere. And, We The People are the “police”. See Katrina after the evacuation. It’s our willingness to stand up for what’s right and our fellow human beings that will count.

If I had a Concealed Carry Permit, I’d got o Front Sight for their four day training and spend more time at the range to maintain my proficiency. But, the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee doesn’t permit its “citizens”. See the elite remember the American Revolution.

GUNS: It’s a case of WHEN not IF; it’s about our WILL

State Imperative – Confiscation of Privately Owned Weapons by Tim Case

*** begin quote ***

Far too often the concern regarding gun ownership has revolved around the question: “Will the government seek to take our firearms?” This has consistently been the wrong inquiry; it should never have been “will,” but rather “when will.” The former is implicit with the addition of the Second Amendment to the Constitution while the latter is subject to a number of real or imagined threats to the state.

*** end quote ***

The RIGHT to Keep and Bear Arms (RKBA) is recognized in the Second Amendment to the Constitution. It flows from the basic RIGHT to life. Everyone has that RIGHT, but the have to fight for it.

As mental experiment, be a Jew in Germany when the thugs come to take you to the death camps. If each man had a gun and the courage to use it on the first thug through his door, the Nazis would have soon run out of thugs. One at a time. I can see the conversation: “No, Heinz, you go first. I insist.”

It’s not funny.

We have had the Japanese Internment. Waco, Ruby Ridge.

And, it took 50 years for FDR’s involvement in Pearl Harbor to become public.

Sorry, maybe I’m a tin foil hat? I am a “birther”.

Each man and woman will have to decide when they are the Jew in the apartment. The “Jap” in San Francisco. The Branch Davidian. The mother at Ruby Ridge.

When do you resist? Each one us will have to decide for ourselves. What is your line in the sand? When they are loading you and your family on the train to the “work camp”?

Genocide can only be done by a gooferment on an unarmed population.

Gooferment is the meme that kills!

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Putting an end to nine years of litigation, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear New York City’s request to continue a lawsuit that sought to hold firearms manufacturers responsible for the criminal misuse of firearms.

Common sense. Don’t blame the tool or the tool maker!

GUNS: Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009

They Are Coming After Our Ammo- By Hermit

*** begin quote ***

Subject: Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009

It has already started…

Ammunition Accountability Legislation

Remember how Obama said that he wasn’t going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacturer and dealers to keep a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers.

Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded.

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011. (Including hand loaded ammo.) They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

Argh! Always, have to be ready to fight the gun-grabbers.

GUN: Use a tool; need support?

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

MA: Gun-rights advocates stand by Worcester worker – Boston Herald

“Antiviolence and gun-rights backers banded together yesterday in support of a Worcester liquor store clerk who shot and killed a masked man who allegedly pulled a gun on him during an attempted robbery. … ‘It sounds like a cfear-cut case of self-defense, which is what the Second Amendment is really all about,’ said Jim Wallace, director of the Gun Owners Action League of Massachusetts. ‘The (clerk) was properly lawfully in possession of a firearm. It sounds like a win-win situation.’ Forty-year-old Evan Louis Rivera, who entered the store with another masked man, pointed a gun at one of the clerks and one of the clerks fired back, striking Rivera multiple times, police said. Rivera died 45 minutes later. John Rosenthal, co-founder of Stop Handgun Violence and a rifle owner, said he supports responsible gun ownership and the use of firearms in self-defense.” (12/12/08)

Which begs the question, why in the world would some one who defends themself or their property need support. He should get a parade!
