That’s why the Dead Old White Guys wanted folks to have guns.

Let’s imagine we are not in the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, os as in this case the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerk, and this young woman was “packing heat”.   Say a “small 380” like a RUGER – LCP II with 7 in the magazine.  OK, rerun the incident.  The mob of 20 chase her, she stops, pulls out her gun, and takes a firing stance.  Who’s going to be first to rush her?  No one ever wants to be down range of a crazy woman with a gun; let alone one who’s in fear for her life!  True, she only has seven shots. But I assume she’ll have extra mags. I bet the “mob” will beat feet for safer targets.  And so what if she “puts down a few animals”?  I’m pro-choice and pro-life, but the RKBA means the right to be secure in your person.  Aggressors have no rights.

I’m firmly convince this would have be  another in yet a long list of DGUs (Defensive Gun Use) incidents where no shots are fires and the threat disappears.

GUNS: New Jersey State Constitution seems to permit “constitutional carry”

“All persons are by nature free and independent, and have certain natural and unalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and of pursuing and obtaining safety and happiness.”

Following the advice of Brion McClanahan (i.e.,  “Think Locally Act Locally”, I actually looked for an equivalent to the Second Amendment, but found some support for the RKBA.

Wonder why we don’t have Constitutional Carry?

GUNS: The palladium right that will lead to secession

http://jimbovard.com/blog/2020/02/03/gun-seizures-could-lead-to-civil-war/?fbclid=IwAR15zjJ-YIVvLQX15Jx3H6h2fG0EjioRczYG-9evxhp5YrqhwhaYc73y8mU

Gun Seizures Could Lead to Civil War
by James Bovard

February 3, 2020

“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15,” declared “Beto” O’Rourke at a Democratic party presidential candidate debate in September. Compelling Americans to surrender their so-called assault weapons is “the newest purity test” for Democratic presidential candidates, according to the Washington Post. O’Rourke and other Democratic presidential candidates, including Cory Booker, Kristin Gillibrand, and Bill de Blasio (now withdrawn from the race, as are Gillibrand and O’Rourke) have all endorsed mandatory buy-backs of assault weapons. Though such proposals are momentarily politically profitable, they could start a cascade of public-policy dominoes that ends in civil war.

As much as I deplore violence and, as a pro-lifer, the deaths that will come from another “civil war”, certain rights are worth fighting for.

The RIGHT to keep and bear arms, enshrined in the Constitution, is all that keeps the Gooferment in check.

Classic example is the trains loaded for the Nazi death camps were preceded by the disarming the sheep by the Weimar “republic”. “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

For all those, who say “We, The Sheeple” can not stand up to the Gooferment in an armed rebellion, I point to Afghanistan where the locals armed with 1900’s vintage rifles defeated the English, Russians, and the USA. When you’re fighting for the “homeland” and you can blend in with the local population, that represents a new generation of asymmetrical warfare. Conventional generals fighting the last war can’t possibly win.

While I pray for the peaceful separation of the USA, just like the USSR, I KNOW that any attempt to disarm “We, The Sheeple” will result in bloodshed.

“From my cold dead hands” is more than a bumpersticker. But it does summarize how gun owners and patriots feel. “Give me liberty or give me death.”

Remember Churchill’s quote: “…if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.” -Churchill, The Second World War, vol. 1, The Gathering Storm (London: Cassell, 1948, 272, on the British guarantee to Poland in Spring 1939.

GUNS: The Meaning Behind Molon Labe, a Favored Gun Rights Slogan 

Molon Labe (or ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ) is a classical Greek phrase meaning “come and take [them],” attributed to King Leonidas of Sparta as a defiant response to the demand that his soldiers lay down their weapons. Gun-rights advocates have adopted the phrase as a challenge to perceived attempts by the government to confiscate firearms.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” — apocryphal unsourced quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

So too, when the Gooferment sends men to disarm the militia.

“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

The politicians and bureaucrats, who think it can be done with the stoke of a pen, will find it can’t be done.

Look at New Zealand, gun owners just ignored the law.

The essence of any resistance is just non-cooperation.

If gun owners just refuse to cooperate with their own destruction, it will end quietly.

Can’t load the trains to the concentration camps if “We, The Sheeple” don’t comply.

GUNS: A modest suggestion to DJT45 mailed this morning

2019-Jul-11

President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Re: A suggestion about “gun violence”

Dear Mr. President:

May I respectfully suggest one action that you can take immediately to cut down on crime and gun violence?

Ask the Attorney General to survey all the Deputy Attorney Generals each month and report how many “Felon In Possession” convictions each one has “concluded”. Every month, “invite” the lowest performer to personally come and explain to you why they are on the bottom of the list. If you don’t like what you hear or the same individual shows up again, then thank them for their service and accept their resignation. Very simple. Very efficient. And, I believe very effective. As a business executive, you know that no one will want to face the boss under those types of conditions.

Now I am just a retired IT executive, who’s an NRA and GOA member, and I believe that all responsible gun owners would cheer that someone is doing something about the “problem” that focus on the criminals. And, since those criminals are “street smart”, I believe they will suddenly pay attention to not to be “in possession”.

Yes, I voted for you in the last election on the hope you’d get the US out of Afghanistan. Next election, it looks to me that Tulsi Gabbard might be my choice to make peace. Maybe she should be your running mate?

Respectfully
Ferdinand J. Reinke

GUNS: “Red Flag” — no due process AND no penalty for malicious use

2019-Mar-31

https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2019/03/29/colorado-senate-passes-red-flag-bill/

*** begin quote ***

Look, the problem with red flag laws is simple to understand. One is that there’s no real due process involved. Someone says, “Bill is a threat to himself or others” and a judge simply says, “Alrighty, then,” signs a piece of paper, and now Bill loses his guns. He had no opportunity to respond. Bill didn’t get to tell the judge that Sally just said that because she thinks all gun owners are dangerous. He doesn’t get to reply that she misunderstood something he said. He doesn’t get to explain that she’s just angry at him because of political disagreements between the two.

Bill doesn’t get to say anything until after the fact.

Imagine someone proposing something similar that would prevent someone from accessing the internet or voting without due process? The howls would be everywhere and for good reason.

But as has been noted before, the Second Amendment is a second-class right in far too many people’s minds. They believe it shouldn’t be afforded the same level of protection that other rights enjoy.

Another issue is that there’s absolutely no real punishment for those who use red flag laws maliciously. At best, it’s a slap on the wrist, but let’s understand that what we’re talking about here is a measure that will provide legalized swatting. The police will show up to take people’s guns. Those who use these laws to punish others are depriving folks of their civil liberties. That calls for stiff penalties.

Unfortunately, no one seems willing to put that in a bill.

Cory Booker Displays Profound Ignorance On Gun Laws In Town Hall
Posted at 8:30 am on March 29, 2019 by Tom Knighton

*** begin quote ***

Convicted criminals aren’t buying them even from face-to-face transfers from law-abiding citizens, either. Why? Because they don’t want a citizen to ID them. After all, what if the police find out that the gun was sold to Joe Smith, but Joe says he sold it to someone else? Joe is a law-abiding citizen, so the idea of the gun he sold being used in a crime is upsetting. Why yes, Officer, I can give you a description of the guy. In fact, I still have his cell phone number.

That’s bad news in Criminal Land.

*** end quote ***

Three strikes and you’re out.

No one even pretended that “gun control” is anything but disarming the sheep so the wolves can run wild.

In https://www.dailyherald.com/article/20130127/discuss/701279952/, the editors didn’t dispute the statement: “Background checks, no problem. Gun registration is a big problem. Every genocide in modern history has started with a gun registration, followed by confiscation, followed by genocide.” All they did was gripe that it was “plagiarized”.  Argh!  Guess every idea they print is unique?

Remember: “Registration, confiscation, genocide”.  

With the new “red flag” laws popping up all over, we now into step #2.

“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
