My gun: A most necessary tool

*** begin quote ***

Until we, as a society, relearn that guns are tools, we will continue to put armed citizens like Roderick Scott on trial. Until we, as a people, remember that guns are technology – that they are neither good nor evil, possessing neither volition nor intent as inanimate objects – we will continue to uphold victimhood as morally preferable to using force in self-defense. Until we, as a society, stop vilifying law-abiding, productive members of society who take responsibility for the protection of their homes, their families and their property, we will continue contributing to the problem of crime in an increasingly out-of-control nation.

*** end quote ***

It may seem incongruous to talk about guns on the birthday of the Prince of Peace.

BUT, (there is always a big butt), how do we have peace?

By being “peaceful”. And that translates to everyone having a “piece”.

Heinlein said it best: “An armed society is a polite society.”

GUNS: Fort Hood is a gun free zone?

Time to Put An End to Army Bases as Gun-Free Zones
John R. Lott, Jr.

*** begin quote ***

For the safety of our soldiers and citizens, we hope that this simple fact about the Ft. Hood attack and the role that gun-free zones played in allowing yet another multiple victim public shooting becomes part of the news coverage itself. The political debate about guns would be quite different if even once in a while a news story clearly explained that there has been another multiple victim public shooting in a gun-free zone.

*** end quote ***

I don’t understand. Like arming the commercial air line pilots, don’t we trust these guys? Hard to imagine a worse outcome. Terrorists and criminals don’t observe laws; honest people do. For that, we give them a death sentence.

But, then you know I want to arm the school principals, janitors, and teachers.

The gun is just a tool to dispose of varmints — two legged and four legged.

I trust my fellow citizens. Don’t you?

Women, Stop Watching Oprah and Learn to Love Guns
by Karen De Coster

*** begin quote ***

Let’s face it – women are more vulnerable to attack because, most likely, their aggressor will be a man. Women are physically weaker, and criminals know that we are less willing to be mentally prepared for aggression because, unlike men, most of us just aren’t wired to be combative. A woman’s attacker will be bigger, stronger, and faster than her, and by nature they will be more aggressive, and that’s before considering any mental or drug problem that may be associated with a criminal attack. So why do women not want to take that into consideration and equalize the situation by learning to use and love guns? Dr. Thomas Szasz, libertarian scholar and Professor of Psychiatry at Syracuse University, once stated, “self-defense is not merely our legal right but our moral duty; because women are more vulnerable than men, their need and obligation to defend themselves is even greater than that of men.” Dr. Szasz is a wise man.

*** end quote ***

# – # – #

Let me just quote from Marie’s soliloquy in my book “CHURCH 10●19●62″

“Yes, we women do (kill). Did you know John’s paternal grandmother traveled the Oregon Trail, bore 13 children, and fought Indians and Outlaws? She’s in her 90’s now. I’ve read her letters. Women can kill when it’s needed. We may not be as physically strong as men, but who seems to get to change all the diapers? Don’t worry about the words and labels. Just do what’s right. OK?”

OK! Women are smart and responsible for their own defense. Wasn’t that what the “women’s liberation” movement was all about. Empowering women? So why do they tolerate male legislators making them victims of every low life man who wants to hurt them.

As Heinlein said: “An armed society is a polite society.”

Frankly, I trust women a lot more than I trust politicians.

From my cold dead hand …; yours too, I hope.

# – # – #

p.s., I tried to emulate Heinlein. The first book I ever really read and absorbed a political message from was his “Starship Troopers”. Admittedly a juvenile science fiction action novel, it was a College level course in Libertarian philosophy. So to, in my book “CHURCH 10●19●62″, I tried to get across my political ideas about Liberty. His was much better, but I tried. Hopefully, I can turn one person onto freedom.

GUNS: Lautenberg is in his dotage; what part of “shall not be infringed” does he not understand?

Brady Campaign And Lautenberg Unite To Mislead And Control—Again
Friday, April 24, 2009

*** begin quote ***  

This week, in a typically misleading move designed to bolster their political agenda rather than reduce violent crime, the Brady Campaign released a report calling for background checks on “all gun sales in America, including at gun shows.” The Brady report was intentionally designed to correspond with, and bolster, a “gun show loophole” bill (S. 843) introduced this week by fanatical anti-gun Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ). In fact, the Brady report was released at the press conference Lautenberg held earlier this week.

Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign, said in the group’s press release, “We can do this. It will have no impact on any law-abiding gun owner in the country.” Of course, that is absolutely false—the proposal will ONLY impact law-abiding gun owners, including any law-abiding person selling a firearm to a law-abiding buyer. Does Helmke really think that criminals, drug cartel members, and violent gang thugs are going to start legally purchasing firearms and submitting to a background check? Law-breakers, by definition, break the law. They are criminals; they are predatory, they operate outside of the law. You know that, we know that, Lautenberg knows that, even Helmke knows that.

Lautenberg’s new bill is essentially a re-introduction of the same bill he introduced in the 110th Congress—S. 2577. And as before, S. 843 calls for massive new government powers to register gun show customers, register gun owners, retain information on people who pass criminal records checks when buying firearms, heavily tax both gun collectors and gun sales, and require gun show promoters to police gun show customers, as if they were agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

{Extraneous Deleted}

*** end quote ***

Once again, Lautenberg shows his age. He’s senile. That was popular BEFORE the idea that criminals by guns at gun shows was thorughly debunked.

Once again, we return to the concept that the only folks who will try to abide by the unconstitutional “victim disarmament” diktats passed by the congress critters is people who obey !

Time to vote poor befuddled Frank out.

Even in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, we can see when a man is being manipulated by others.

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.

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!

*** end quote ***

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!

Robber fatally shot in Miami Burger King holdup
A robbery at a Burger King in Miami’s Upper East Side neighborhood left one person dead and another seriously injured.
BY ROBERT SAMUELS

*** begin quote ***

An afternoon shootout at a busy Burger King restaurant in Miami left a potential robber dead and the customer who shot him seriously wounded.

The bloody event unfolded about 4 p.m. Tuesday at the restaurant at Northeast 54th Street and Biscayne Boulevard. It was a time, employees said, when it is usually crowded with schoolchildren and people getting out of work early.

The robber entered wearing a ski mask. He approached a clerk, showed his gun and demanded money, said Miami police spokesman Jeff Giordano.

A customer eyed him and the two started arguing. The customer had a concealed-weapons permit and his gun — and the two exchanged gunfire.

*** end quote ***

Guess the police weren’t there. (No slam on them. How could they possibly be everywhere?)

But “we” are the police. The armed citizen willing to step up to the robber.

Vanderboegh: ‘Defiance’ — “Without a rifle, you are nothing”

200902010950.jpg

*** begin quote ***

Though the movie may insert inappropriate comic relief and its versions of the Bielski brothers are at times so incompetent that they would not have survived for a week, let alone for years, it does what Holocaust movies all too often avoid doing, it focuses on the survival. The Germans, when they arrive, are soldiers in gray moving in and out. The locals collaborate or don’t, for their own reasons. There is no moral to be learned, except that if you want to live and want others to live, you must be prepared to do what it takes.

That is the first and foremost lesson of the Holocaust to be learned. For all the unanswered moral, philosophical and theological questions– the bottom line is that millions of Jews were killed, because they could be. The only true defense against a Holocaust is the ability to resist and to survive one.

Before the State of Israel was officially declared, the Bielskis made their own Jewish state in a forest, to live as free men and women mere kilometers from their would be killers, and though like the real state and its real leaders, they may have been flawed, their triumph is not some uplifting moral, but a matter of accomplishment, the 1200 they hid in the forest against all odds, and through determination and hard work, they did not become victims or fatalities, they survived. And through their guidance and efforts so did 1200 others.

No higher praise is needed.

*** end quote ***

Makes me want to see it even more.

Hopefully, this isn’t a portend of things to come in America.

Disarming the people is the first step on a short road to genocide!

GUNS: Buy guns and ammo now?

Buy, Buy, Buy
by Michael Gaddy

*** begin quote ***

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.   ~ Noah Webster

While we stumble along economically with bailouts, buyouts, and poor sales in almost all sectors, two products in America are seeing dramatic increases in sales: guns and ammo. People who never owned a gun before are buying; people are buying multiples of military style weapons and ammo is being bought by the case instead of by the box.

*** end quote ***

Forewarned is forearmed. The encrouchments continue. Watched Mel Gibson’s “the patriot” again last night. Seems so obvious. Why can we only learn the lessons of history after something bad happens to us. Look at the TSA and ask “how the hell did this happen?”. I’d suggest it was when the FAA disarmed the pilots. But you might have other opinions.

The RIGHT to Keep and Bear Arms — RKBA — should have been the First Amendment! Ask any tyrant or dictator.

It’s really the litmus test for a politician. Ask that one question and you can tell if they are a socialist or not.

Big Brother’s new target: Tracking of all firearms
‘This is nothing less than a declaration of war on American gun owners’
Posted: January 13, 2009

By Drew Zahn

*** begin quote ***

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., is hoping to pass a firearm-licensing bill that will significantly rewrite gun-ownership laws in America.

Among the more controversial provisions of the bill are requirements that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Further, the bill would order the attorney general to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner’s address in America.

The bill claims its purpose is “to protect the pubic against the unreasonable risk of injury and death associated with the unrecorded sale or transfer of firearms to criminals and youth.”

*** end quote ***

Columbine, all the school shootings, Mumbai India, and countless examples. The problem is not too many guns. The problem is not enough guns. Heinlein put it best: “An armed society is a polite society”. What do you call an unarmed person? A victim! … just waiting for an attacker.

Why do we have an unarmed populace?

Liberal politicians who live in a make believe world. (And, they usually have an armed security detail protecting them. You, however, are on your own!)

Look at Africa, where the corrupt gooferment disarms the people it seeks to scape goat, before it kills them. Look at Israel, when\re schools used to be a prime terrorist target, before grandparents started taking guns to school. Look at Columbine, where the armed police waited outside till the shooting stopped.

No, sorry, we allow school caretakers to carry knives, screwdrivers, bug spray, rat poison, and other power tools. A gun is no more dangerous than any other TOOL! Personally, if I can’t have the real Second Amendment back, then I’d repeal the “gun free zone” law. That just ensures that the law abiding will be unarmed. And, I’d encourage any one who works in the school to carry if they feel comfortable doing so.

See, to be safe, not everyone has to be carrying. The trick is that the bad guys won’t know who is a sheep and who is a sheep dog. They guess wrong; they die. They die; innocents live. A very efficient solution.

Argh!

Seems so obvious.

Gooferment ills its citizens with illusions of protection and down right genocide!

AR: Armed woman motorist chases off car jackers

KFSM News

“‘A lady was flagged over Sunday evening about 6 p.m. on the interstate between Kelley Highway and the Arkansas river bridge.’ Lt. Steve Coppinger with State Police says that two men in a car signaled that the woman was getting a flat tire. ‘When she pulled over to check her tires one of those person in that other car got out and attempted to rob her at knife point.’ But what the thief didn’t expect happened next. Coppinger says the female driver pulled out her handgun. ‘She pointed that at her attacker and he backed away, got in the car and they fled.’ Investigators say the would-have-been victim was able to turn the tables because she had a concealed carry permit.” [editor's note: She was able to turn the tables because she was armed and willing to defend herself, NOT because some bureau rat magnanimously gave her "permission" - TLK] (12/19/08)

*** begin quote ***

After allegedly shooting himself in the right thigh Friday night at a popular Manhattan nightclub, New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Buress faces charges.Buress’s attorney telling the AP, the N-F-L er will turn himself in on Monday and will likely enter a plea of ”not guilty.”Buress faces the charge of criminal possession of a weapon, it’s not clear whether he has a permit for the gun.

*** end quote ***

Interesting. Now, will he have the courage to mount a Constitutional challenge to the draconian NYC “Gun Control” aka “victim disarmament” laws!
Hope he does!
# # # # #
In a far more lucid explanation:

http://www.lewrockwell.com/kramer/kramer22.html

*** begin quote ***

In a free society, Burress would be responsible for paying his hospital bill and for any damage to the nightclub, after which he could put the whole unpleasant accident behind him and get on with his life.

Instead, the State is going to ruin Burress’ career and life, and cause unspeakable anguish for his loved ones, by locking him in a cage inside a socialist hellhole for a “crime” that hurt no one except for himself – and even that, just barely. The only victim in this “crime” is Burress.

*** end quote ***

AND, he has an absolute Constitutional right to defend himself with what ever tools he deems necessary. Mayor Mike Bloomberg did NOT get all upset about the football celebrity friend of Plaxico who was robbed at gunpoint earlier that week.

Indeed, if we “convict” Plaxico of anything, it would be “failure to properly equip himself” with a suitable holster.

Guns don’t go in waistbands. (That for the movies.) And, you certainly don’t point the end with the hole anywhere near your family jewels.

All in all, after you finish laughing at the idea of a wide receiver fumbling the gun, you should be outraged at the politicians who put us in this absurdity int he first place.

By the way, when Mayor Mike takes his famous subway ride to work, he had FOUR armed cops as body guards with him AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE. Sure, he’s for “gun control” aka “victim disarmament”; he doesn’t need to protect himself!

Argh!

UPDATE: 12/20/08

The life and death cost of gun control
Hawaii Reporter
by John R. Lott Jr.

“Banning guns is in the news. India practically bans guns, but that didn’t stop the horrific Muslim terrorist attacks this last week. A football player concerned for his safety violates New York City’s tough gun control regulations by carrying a concealed handgun, and people call for everything from banning NFL players from carrying guns to demanding that the athlete serve many years in jail. Where is the sympathy or debate in either case over letting people defend themselves? Given that the terrorists smuggled their machine guns in with them, would anyone argue that India’s extremely strict gun licensing and artificially high prices for guns helped prevent the terrorist attacks? In fact, the reverse is more likely the case.” (12/17/08)

This should serve as a warning to all freedom loving Americans. Before pulling the lever this coming November, remember: both Hillary and Obama support draconian gun laws aimed not at criminals (because criminals don’t obey the laws anyway), but at law abiding citizens.

Luddite sent me the link.

Could it be that I am finally turning him to the side of liberty?

England is a precursor of the USA.

Our politicians are charging down the same path.

“Judged by 12 rather than carried by 6″ obviously failed in this case! The English have chosen “victim disarmament”!

Argh.

GUNS: How did “victim disarmament” cause the Indian slaughter

How Gun Control Laws Contributed To the Mumbai Slaughter

An interesting article, from October, 2005, provided by http://www.gunowners.org:

Gun Control And Self-defense Against Terrorism In India
by Abhijeet Singh
Colonial Roots of Gun-Control

I live in India and I am a proud firearm owner — but I am the exception not the norm, an odd situation in a country with a proud martial heritage and a long history of firearm innovation. This is not because the people of India are averse to gun ownership, but instead due to Draconian anti-gun legislation going back to colonial times.

*** end quote ***

I blogged about this when I first heard it.

It’s not “gun control”; it’s “victim disarmament”!

Interesting how Colonial Laws from one set of politicians are quickly “updated” by another set of politicians. They all fear an armed people.

Riots? The Korean grocers showed how to end mob rule very quickly.

Gun rights, aka the right to defend yourself, is actually also a “women’s rights” issue.

The Holocaust demonstrated what happens when scapegoats are unarmed.

British home invasions, when the homes are occupied, skyrocket with “victim disarmament”!

Apparently the Indian slaughter in Mumbai was pulled off by 10 criminals. Reports have armed police refusing to fire on them. And, the “crack commandos” were like the Keystone Kops. (Remember Columbine, where the “heroic” police encircled the school, until the criminals finished killing everyone and themselves?)

Remember how Israeli schools and daycare centers were targeted until armed grandparents started providing security. And, the last massacre was on a school trip where guns were not permitted.

Wake up folks! Criminals don’t obey laws. Kops are just gooferment bureaucrats who are there to clean up the bodies and fill out paperwork. Dial 911 and die.

Of interest was in the 2006 article, the Indian writer cited Gandhi, the Dali Lama, Lenin, and a slew of the DOWGs! Fascinating.

“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.” — Mahatma Gandhi (An Autobiography OR The story of my experiments with truth, by M.K. Gandhi, p.238)

“If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.” — The Dalai Lama, (May 15, 2001, The Seattle Times) speaking at the “Educating Heart Summit” in Portland, Oregon, when asked by a girl how to react when a shooter takes aim at a classmate

“A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie.” — Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”— George Mason

Mumbai’s Harsh Lesson on Gun Control
By Abhijeet Singh

*** begin quote ***

At the Jewish outreach centre, bystanders pelted the terrorists with stones in a vain attempt to ward off the attack, but had to retreat when the terrorists opened fire with automatic rifles. Our citizens were trying to ward off the terrorists with stones! I cannot think of a more extreme example of how helpless the government has rendered it’s own citizens. In the absence of guns, and thus incapable of offering any resistance, they were simply like lambs to the slaughter. On that fateful day, this was a story repeated again and again all over Mumbai: unarmed civilians, slow & inept emergency services, and mindless slaughter of innocents.

But we live in a democracy; hence at the end of the day it is each one of us who is to blame. It is we the people who must ask our representatives hard questions; it is we who must bring the right to bear arms to the forefront of the political agenda. We have the power to effect change through our votes and with elections just a few months away, let us not forget the lessons of Mumbai, let us not forget those that lost their lives there, many of who could have been saved if just a few of us were armed.

Indian forces kill last gunmen in Mumbai Indian forces kill last gunmen in Mumbai

MUMBAI, India (AP) – A 60-hour terror rampage that killed at least 195 people across India’s financial capital ended Saturday when commandos killed the last three gunmen inside a luxury hotel while it was engulfed in flames. Authorities searched for any remaining captives hiding in their rooms and…

I don’t see any mention in the liberal biased mainstream press (but, as mark twain said, i repeat myself), abotu the draconian gun control laws in India.

Guess we can’t trust victims to defend themselves.

Wonder how this disaster might have turned out?

GOOFERMENT kills!
