The “Assault Weapon” Rebellion
Townhall Magazine | Apr 12, 2014

*** begin quote ***

The government of Connecticut can’t threaten the citizenry with criminal charges. They’ve already willingly decided to become felons en masse. The government can’t threaten the citizenry with force. They’re both grossly outnumbered and outgunned. The government can’t offer an amnesty. It would only reinforce how little power the government has over a rebellious citizenry.

The only realistic option is for the government of Connecticut to pretend that their assault weapon ban never existed. To admit it exists, and that they can do nothing to enforce it, would reveal that the emperor and his court have no clothes.

A nearly identical problem is brewing next door in the much larger, more populous state of New York, thanks to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s hastily-passed NY SAFE Act. That law demands that New Yorkers register their semi-automatic “assault rifles” with the government by April 15.

*** end quote ***

From my cold dead hands.

Why should the people fear the Gooferment?

They are a joke. 

A very dangerous joke. 

Look at speed limits. People are withdrawing consent in all sorts of little ways.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

And don’t forget the movie quote:

“Yes. In the end, you will walk out. Because 100,000 Englishmen simply cannot control 350 million Indians, if those Indians refuse to cooperate.” — movie Gandhi (1983)

Substitute “politicians and bureaucrats” and “gun owners” and that’s what’s happening here.

GUNS: “Help will be there is a few minutes.”

best line is: “But I don’t have a few minutes.”

Argh!

Technically, I guess she should have waited until he broke in. 

But, if I was on the Jury, I’d wink at that distinction. 

Not like he was there to sell Girl Scout cookies.

While the Connecticut Citizens Defense League believes the law is unconstitutional, it has been reminding gun owners of the deadline to make sure they don’t become felons on Jan. 1.

GUNS: NFL banned commercial

Why would the NFL ban this commercial from the Superbowl unless it has a political agenda?

Maybe RKBA activists should boycott the Superbowl!

GUN: “stupidity with a firearm

SEPTEMBER 16, 2013

Aaron Alexis, Suspect In Washington Navy Yard Shooting, Was Once Arrested For Shooting Bullet Into Neighbor’s Home

*** begin quote ***

The suspect in today’s deadly shooting at the Washington Navy Yard was once arrested for discharging a firearm into the ceiling of his Texas residence, according to police records.

Aaron Alexis, 34, was arrested in September 2010 after his upstairs neighbor called Fort Worth cops to report that a bullet had been shot into her apartment. The round apparently first traveled through her home’s floor and then the ceiling.

[UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF PIECE: Alexis was also arrested in mid-2004 for shooting out the tires of a car owned by a construction worker who purportedly “mocked him.” Alexis told cops that an anger-fueled “black out” promted the shooting. Alexis’s father told investigators that his son suffered from “anger management problems” that were related to post-traumatic stress disorder, perhaps connected to his involvement in rescue work following the September 11 terror attacks.]

The woman, whose name is not listed in a Fort Worth Police Department report, said that she was “terrified” of Alexis, who had previously confronted her about making too much noise. The woman, who was “visibly shaken up” when questioned by police, said that she believed the shooting was “intentional.”

*** end quote ***

I don’t understand. 

He should have been arrested.

If for nothing more than “stupidity with a firearm”.

If convicted, he’d have been barred from possession.

Yet, now we’ll endure more “gun control”.

In realist, what genius decided it was a good idea to prevent the military from packin on a base?

… … <cue the Jeopardy theme> … …

Bill Clinton!

Argh!

[Personally, I’m praying for the victims. Victims of Gooferment stupidity.]

GUNS: Not everything requires hardware

Knife-wielding burglar bruised and battered by 72-year-old retired boxer
8/09/13 | by Brent McCluskey

*** begin quote ***

“I was scared when he first drew the knife, but my old training must have kicked in because I just punched him as hard as I could and he went down like a sack of spuds. If you can’t defend what’s yours, where are we at?” Corti said after the case.

*** end quote ***

Sorry, but this just kicks the can down the road four years. Probably less.

And, makes it someone else’s problem.

With a gun, this criminal would be dirt side up and an object lesson.

Glad it worked out so well, but I’m a non-violent pro-life person, but I want a gun when the Bad Guy brings a knife.

GUNS: Sprinkling “sheepdogs” into the flock of “sheep”

Gun toting teachers’ names must remain private
By John Lott
Published August 09, 2013
FoxNews.com

*** begin quote ***

By revealing the names of permit holders, the newspaper effectively told criminals what homes had no armed defense. Indeed, when editors of the paper were asked by documentary filmaker and activist James O’Keefe if they would put signs in front of their homes saying that they were “gun free,” they understood it would make them targets of criminals.

*** end quote ***

The purpose of sprinkling “sheepdogs” into the flock of “sheep” is to surprise the “wolves”.

This misguided fellow wants to paint a bullseye on those “sheepdogs”.

Like a “dog in the manger”, he can’t win the argument on merits so he’s going to make it not work!

Argh!
