Attack in NICE France
     An intolerant ‘religion’/ideology whose supporters preach that all so-called ‘non believers’ must be killed was never a real religion in the first place, it is a terrorist organization veiled in ‘religion’, it is a cancer, and like a cancer, for the survival of the body/world it has infected, it must be surgically removed once and for all, for the survival of this world.
     I believe that the attack by the demented follower of this ‘religion’, using a huge truck, should finally be a ‘wake up’ call to the nations of the world to unite, even briefly, to remove this ideology/cancer once and for all.
     That will never be accomplished by empty posturing and foolish agenda driven rhetoric on how to disarm honest Americans every time an evil event like this occurs. The attack in Nice France was so horrific/twisted/sick and heart breaking it could only be topped by something nuclear the next time.
Are our so-called ‘leaders’ stupid/foolish enough to allow that to happen while sitting on their thumbs?

 I had never heard of the 13th hand story before. Very poignant.

Six BOYS AND 13 HANDS

Each year I am hired to go to a Washington, DC, with the eighth grade class from Clinton, WI, where I grew up, to videotape their trip.  I greatly enjoy visiting our Nation’s Capital, and each year I take some special memories back with me.  This fall’s trip was especially memorable.

On the last night of our trip, we stopped at the Iwo Jima Memorial.  This memorial is the largest bronze statue in the world and depicts one of the most famous photographs in history…that of the six brave soldiers raising the American Flag at the top of a rocky hill on the island of Iwo Jima, Japan, during WW II.

Over one hundred students and chaperones piled off the buses and headed towards the memorial.  I noticed a solitary figure at the base of the statue, and as I got closer he asked, ‘Where are you guys from?’

I told him that we were from Wisconsin.  ‘Hey, I’m a cheese head, too!  Come gather around, Cheese heads, and I will tell you a story’.

(It was James Bradley who just happened to be in Washington, DC, to speak at the memorial the following day.  He was there that night to say good night to his dad, who had passed away.  He was just about to leave when he saw the buses pull up.  I videotaped him as he spoke to us, and received his permission to share what he said from my videotape.  It is one thing to tour the incredible monuments filled with history in Washington, DC, but it is quite another to get the kind of insight we received that night.)

When all had gathered around, he reverently began to speak.  Here are his words that night.

‘My name is James Bradley and I’m from Antigo, Wisconsin.  My dad is on that statue, and I wrote a book called ‘Flags of Our Fathers.’  It is the story of the six boys you see behind me.

‘Six boys raised the flag.  The first guy putting the pole in the ground is Harlon Block.  Harlon was an all-state football player.  He enlisted in the Marine Corps with all the senior members of his football team.  They were off to play another type of game.  A game called ‘War.’  But it didn’t turn out to be a game.  Harlon, at the age of 21, died with his intestines in his hands.  I don’t say that to gross you out, I say that because there are people who stand in front of this statue and talk about the glory of war.  You  guys need to know that most of the boys in Iwo Jima were 17, 18, and 19 years old – and it was so hard that the ones who did make it home never even would talk to their families about it.

(He pointed to the statue) ‘You see this next guy?  That’s Rene Gagnon from New Hampshire.  If you took Rene’s helmet off at the moment this photo was taken and looked in the webbing of that helmet, you would find a photograph…a photograph of his girlfriend Rene put that in there for protection because he was scared.  He was 18 years old.  It was just boys who won the battle of Iwo Jima…Boys…not old men.

‘The next guy here, the third guy in this tableau, was Sergeant Mike Strank.  Mike is my hero.  He was the hero of all these guys.  They called him the ‘old man’ because he was so old.  He was already 24.  When Mike would motivate his boys in training camp, he didn’t say, ‘Let’s go kill some Japanese’ or ‘Let’s die for our country.’  He knew he was talking to little boys.  Instead he would say, ‘You do what I say, and I’ll get you home to your mothers.’

‘The last guy on this side of the statue is Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona.  Ira Hayes was one of them who lived to walk off Iwo Jima.  He went into the White House with my dad.  President Truman told him, ‘You’re a hero.’  Ira told reporters, ‘How can I feel like a hero when 250 of my buddies hit the island with me and only 27 of us walked off alive?’

So you take your class at school, 250 of you spending a year together having fun, doing everything together.  Then all 250 of you hit the beach, but only 27 of your classmates walk off alive.  That was Ira Hayes.  He had images of horror in his mind.  Ira Hayes carried the pain home with him and eventually died dead drunk, face down, drowned in a very shallow puddle, at the age of 32 (ten years after this picture was taken).

‘The next guy, going around the statue, is Franklin Sousley from Hilltop, Kentucky.  A fun-lovin’ hillbilly boy.  His best friend, who is now 70, told me, ‘Yeah, you know, we took two cows up on the porch of the Hilltop General Store.  Then we strung wire across the stairs so the cows couldn’t get down.  Then we fed them Epsom salts.  Those cows crapped all night.  ‘Yes, he was a fun-lovin’ hillbilly boy.  Franklin died on Iwo Jima at the age of 19.

When the telegram came to tell his mother that he was dead, it went to the Hilltop General Store.  A barefoot boy ran that telegram up to his mother’s farm.  The neighbors could hear her scream all night and into the morning.  Those neighbors lived a quarter of a mile away.

‘The next guy, as we continue to go around the statue, is my dad, John Bradley, from Antigo, Wisconsin, where I was raised.  My dad lived until 1994, but he would never give interviews.  When Walter Cronkite’s producers of the New York Times would call, we were trained as little kids to say ‘No, I’m sorry, sir, my dad’s not here.  He is in Canada fishing.  No, there is no phone there, sir.  No, we don’t know when he is coming back.’

My dad never fished or even went to Canada.  Usually, he was sitting there right at the table eating his Campbell’s soup.  But we had to tell the press that he was out fishing.  He didn’t want to talk to the press.

‘You see, like Ira Hayes, my dad didn’t see himself as a hero.  Everyone thinks these guys are heroes, ’cause they are in a photo and on a monument.  My dad knew better.  He was a medic.  John Bradley from Wisconsin was a combat caregiver.  On Iwo Jima he probably held over 200 boys as they died.  And when boys died on Iwo Jima, they writhed and screamed, without any medication or help with the pain.

‘When I was a little boy, my third grade teacher told me that my dad was a hero.  When I went home and told my dad that, he looked at me and said, ‘I want you always to remember that the heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys who did not come back; DID NOT come back.’

‘So that’s the story about six nice young boys…three died on Iwo Jima, and three came back as national heroes.  Overall, 7,000 boys died on Iwo Jima in the worst battle in the history of the Marine Corps.  My voice is giving out, so I will end here.  Thank you for your time.’

Suddenly, the monument wasn’t just a big old piece of metal with a flag sticking out of the top.  It came to life before our eyes with the heartfelt words of a son who did indeed have a father who was a hero.  Maybe not a hero for the reasons most people would believe, but a hero nonetheless.

Let us never forget from the Revolutionary War to the current War on Terrorism and all the wars in-between that sacrifice was made for our freedom…please pray for our troops.

Remember to pray praises for this great country of ours and also…please pray for our troops still in murderous places around the world.

REMINDER:

Every day that you can wake up free, it’s going to be a great day.

One thing I learned while on tour with my 8th grade students in DC that is not mentioned here is…that if you look at the statue very closely and count the number of ‘hands’ raising the flag, there are 13.  When the man who made the statue was asked why there were 13, he simply said the 13th hand was the hand of God.

Great story…worth your time…worth every American’s time

By John Podhoretz,

Omar Mateen called the cops to pledge his fealty to ISIS

 

as he was carrying out his mass murderer in Orlando early Sunday morning. Twelve hours later, the president of the United States declared that “we have no definitive assessment on the motivation” of Omar Mateen but that “we know he was a person filled with hate.”

So I guess the president thinks Mateen didn’t mean it?

Here again, and horribly, we have an unmistakable indication that Obama finds it astonishingly easy to divorce himself from a reality he doesn’t like — the reality of the Islamist terror war against the United States and how it is moving to our shores in the form of lone-wolf attacks.

He called it “terror,” which it is. But using the word “terror” without a limiting and defining adjective is like a doctor calling a disease “cancer” without making note of the affected area of the body — because if he doesn’t know where the cancer is and what form it takes, he cannot attack it effectively and seek to extirpate it.

So determined is the president to avoid the subject of Islamist, ISIS-inspired or ISIS-directed terrorism that he concluded his remarks with an astonishing insistence that “we need the strength and courage to change” our attitudes toward the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community.

That’s just disgusting. There’s no other word for it, America’s national attitude toward LGBT people didn’t shoot up the Pulse nightclub. This country’s national attitude has undergone a sea-change in the past 20 years, by the way, in case the president hasn’t noticed.

An Islamist terrorist waging war against the United States killed and injured 103 people on our soil. We Americans do not bear collective responsibility for this attack. Quite the opposite.

The attack on the Pulse nightclub was an attack on us all, no less than the World Trade Center attack.

To suggest we must look inward to explain this is not only unseemly but practically an act of conscious misdirection on the president’ s part to direct out attention away from Omar Mateen’s phone call.

True to form, the president spoke more words about the scourge of guns than about the threat of terror. In doing so, he actually retards rather than advances the cause of gun control he so passionately advocates.

A president totally and credibly committed to the destruction of ISIS and other terror groups seeking to bring the war to us might earn the political and moral capital to seek more extensive limits on gun ownership.

A president who cannot name the enemy even as he anthropomorphizes the weapon the enemy is a president unable to bring anyone to his side who’s not already there.

To fight back against the evils of San Bernardino and Orlando, we do need change — and fortunately for us, it’s constitutionally mandated change. It’s the change required by the 22nd Amendment — the change that will compel Barack Obama to leave the White House on January 20, 2017 after completing his second term with America less safe than it was when he took office.

Note: This president and his entire administration is a disgusting example of cowardice in the face of terrorism. Blames guns, can not say that ISIS is out to kill us ALL!! His answer to these acts is always the same, Gun Control,,,what a fool.

In my opinion,

Trump is ahead and will remain there, not because he is ‘lucky’ but because people are totally fed up with Both parties. This has become an anti establishment movement. The GOP does not get it, the Democrats don’t get it, they still think they can do what they always do, tell the American public who the nominee will be by controlling the special interest money that puts their ‘anointed one’ in. Trump is self funding, he will owe nothing to the elite controlling D.C. or Wall St. Instead he will only need answer to the American People, how refreshing is that!……….

It really is about time that Americans have decided that ‘career’ politicians on both sides have long since had their way in destroying our country, they have financially driven America over the cliff! Our yet unborn great grandchildren will be paying for the mistakes and greed of this generation of politicians! Why the hell should they be given any more chances? The GOP thinks that we will allow it to saddle us with another ‘moderate’ that will do a whole lot of nothing for another four years ……Think Again GOP!!  The GOP hates Trump, he is upsetting their little wagon, too bad! If they hate him now just wait until he makes good on his word when the People elect him and he goes to work for us!

The only way the GOP will be able to rid themselves now of Trump would be to assassinate him, I fear for his safety and pray he has excellent security around him at all times.  Politics is the dirtiest of all dirty businesses.

Ca. Law Allowing Seizure of Guns Without Notice Begins Jan. 1st

So, Ca. will not follow the 4th Amendment…..cops are in grave danger if they illegally start to kick in doors…….

The 4th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom from unreasonable search and seizure. This means that law enforcement agents need probable cause, and a warrant in most cases, to search your person or belongings. If there is no probable cause and you are searched illegally, any evidence collected from the search will be excluded from evidence at trial. This has come to be called the Exclusionary Rule.

Probable Cause – There must be enough evidence that a reasonable person would believe a crime was committed. This evidence is presented to a judge who must agree before authorizing the search by granting a warrant.

The purpose of the 4th Amendment is to protect people from being abused by a powerful government. There are strict rules that government agents must follow to search you and seize evidence. PERIOD!

It appears Ca. has no use for a Constitution that gets in the way of arrogant self serving politicians, who should all be recalled by the People of Ca.

Last year the legislature passed laws concerning firearms etc., and one was about active duty military people, they will no longer be required to take a safety course in order to apply for their gun license. I think it is a nice ‘gesture’, (or is it?) in recognition of our service men and women. But I also look at it another way, just because you no longer need the course, does that mean magicallysomehow’ you will know what your legal responsibilities are and what the gun law ‘do’s and don’ts’ are?

An infraction of any gun law(s) usually means a felony count against you! In my opinion this is likely setting up our service people up for failureAre politicians looking at this as a ‘we give you the LTC with one hand and take it away with the other’ ploy? 

I am a pessimist when it comes to politicians and their motives for doing anything, (usually self serving motives) in this anti gun state. So, if anyone you know is active duty and would like a gun license in Ma. please refer them to me, I will not charge them a cent, what I will do is instruct them to read certain article’s that I have written and posted on my Gun Sense page so that they will not be uninformed about what they MUST know if they do not want a felony count against them in the future and loss of gun rights for life, fair enough?   Please pass this on.

A Liberal Supreme Court Ruling will make liberals EXPLODE! Good news for gun owners.
==============================================
On 6-26-2015, as you know, five liberal justices on the SCOTUS redefined what marriage is in America and also found the time to violate the concept of federalism. They decided that an individual’s behavioral choice was grounds to create a new “right” in the U.S. Constitution. Now of course there are those of you who are now somewhat despondent, but just know that in every storm there is a rainbow — Since now the SCOTUS has determined it can bequeath a right to marriage across all 50 states, there is an interesting point to be made.

As reported by BearingArms.com, “If you’re following any of the various media outlets this morning, you’re probably aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has just extended gay marriage to all 50 states. The Supreme Court ruled Friday, 6-26-2015 that same-sex couples have a ‘right’ to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states. Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage. The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally.”

The Court used Section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to justify its argument, which reads: Amendment XIV Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law, which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Now here is the kicker, as the writer articulately brings to light: “By using the Constitution in such a manner, the Court argues that the Due Process Clause extends “certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy” accepted in a majority of states across the state lines of a handful of states that still banned the practice. For gun owners, the vast majority of states are “shall issue” on the matter of issuing concealed carry permits, and enjoy reciprocity with a large number of other states. My North Carolina concealed carry permit, for example, was recognized yesterday as being valid in 36 states, which just so happened to be the number of states in which gay marriage was legal yesterday. But 14 states did not recognize my concealed carry permit yesterday. Today, they MUST, due to this Supreme Court ruling!

Using the same “due process clause” argument as the Supreme Court just applied to gay marriage, my concealed carry permit MUST now be recognized as valid in all 50 states AND the District of Columbia!
Yes folks, there is a standing right called the Second Amendment, which grants the right to keep and bear arms, and that specifically granted right shall not be infringed. So, the SCOTUS does not need to have a court case and prolonged legal, judicial activism — that right exists.

So, since I have moved from Florida to Texas, my concealed weapons permit is not only transferrable here, but all across the country now, in all fifty states — or fifty-seven if you are President Obama….. Thanks to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,(LGBT) community for making it very clear, my constitutionally declared right MUST be recognized in every state! Not only is it my right to keep and bear my arms (weapons) but that “personal choice is central to my individual dignity and autonomy” — the protection of the unalienable rights granted to me by the Creator, the first of which is life. THIS is GREAT, I just cannot wait to hear the liberal progressive socialist anti-gun argument against this premise — which is now established!

NOTE: The Supreme Court started to stray from their sworn duty to follow the Constitution in the 1960s and instead morphed into two factions, Liberal and Conservative, which is NOT how our Founders set it up. The Liberals in this case, in their zeal to pander to a vocal minority group, over looked the side effect this would have across the board dealing with all other licenses…..GOOD! Now it is the law of the land!

Now I suppose someone will say that the words/quotes of Franklin, Mason, Jefferson, and Washington are invalid because of some lame excuse like, well you know, they owned slaves….. But the point is simple and easy to comprehend. If the SCOTUS could create a ‘right’ that was truly non-existent in the Constitution using the 14th Amendment, then it seems reasonable and logical to use the same Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment and equal protection to extend the concealed carry right to ALL 50 states.

So here is the call to action: since we are coming up on our 239th Independence Day celebration, let’s all call the White House and inform them that we CCL owners are going to be traveling for the Independence Day holiday and we plan on carrying our weapons wherever the heck we please. And if anyone decides to stop an American citizen and challenge his or her Second Amendment right, then let’s discuss the violation of federalism by the SCOTUS mandating same-sex marriage. As a matter of fact, we expect the ATF to start issuing NATIONAL CCL cards to all of us who are current holders of valid CCLs — heck, we know the DHS is planning on printing ID cards for illegal immigrants!

Therefore, celebrate your 4th of July knowing that the SCOTUS just solidified our right to keep and bear arms — and that no state has the “right” to infringe upon our Second Amendment right. If the violation of federalism works ok for LGBTs — then it works well for gun owners!

Note: This is a VERY interesting analysis! Since states issue all kinds of licenses and permits, e.g., a license to practice law or medicine, or whatever, will this now mean every state must now recognize every license from all other states, without the person having to sit for a licensing exam in those other states? After all, the ability to earn a living in one’s chosen field is a “personal choice central to their individual dignity and autonomy” as the liberal Supreme Court faction has just decided, and made the law of the land, correct? The answer is YES!

Things happen sometimes that are not under our control, we are all susceptable to being blindsided from time to time. If someone pulls a 209A restraining order against you for instance while they are having an alcohol induced fit ect., and suddenly the police are there taking your firearms/ammo away, here is something for you to consider.

At the time of confiscation, by law, the police are supposed to do two things.

1. As of 8-13-2014 under bill H.4376, If your firearms are confiscated by the licensing authority, (the police) shall at that time inform the person(s) in writing of their ability to transfer their firearms to an independently licensed individual OR dealer, after the 209-A has been terminated by the court, plaintiff, or expires and is not renewed.

2. The officer shall, at the time of confiscation, provide to the person whose firearm(s)/ammo has been confiscated, a written inventory and receipt for any/all of the firearms/ammo confiscated, and the officer and his employer shall exercise due care in the handling, holding and storage of these items. Nothing listed on the inventory should mysteriously be ‘missing’ later on when/if the court terminates the disqualifing conditions…..

So now that you know this, if there is someone that you can trust, and will help you, this is a templet letter he/she can use to present to the police in order to legally take custody of your firearms at the termination of the 209-A, should you want to transfer them at that time instead of taking them back, otherwise barring any other condition that may prevent you from taking them back yourself the court should release them back to you.

(date)

I John Q. Doe II, LTC # 12345678A, of 123 Main St. (name of town) zip code, phone #.               With the permission of (persons name), who was recently under a 209A restraining order. I will take transfer of said person’s firearm(s) and ammunition as listed on the enclosed/attached copy of official inventory list, as is a legal proceedure under H.4376 passed on 8-13-2015. I will keep them stored as to maintain compliance with applicable state firearm storage.

Sincerely, John Q. Doe II,  +(signature)

Printed name of person whose weapons were confiscated and his/her signature below yours.

I would add this whole section along with the letter.

Directly from the 188th session 2013-2014, H.4376, Sec. 42, Section 129D of said Chapter 140; An Act Relative to Reduction of Gun Violence.

SECTION 42. Section 129D of said chapter 140, as so appearing, is hereby amended by striking out the first paragraph and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
Upon revocation, suspension or denial of an application for a firearm identification card pursuant to section 129B or for any firearms license if the firearm identification card is not then in force or for any machine gun license, the person whose application was so revoked, suspended or denied shall without delay deliver or surrender to the licensing authority where the person resides all firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine guns and ammunition which the person then possesses unless an appeal of the revocation or suspension is pending.

The person or the person’s legal representative shall have the right, at any time up to 1 year after the delivery or surrender, to transfer the firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine guns and ammunition to any licensed dealer or any other person legally permitted to purchase or take possession of the firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine guns and ammunition and, upon notification in writing by the purchaser or transferee and the former owner, the licensing authority shall within 10 days deliver the firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine guns and ammunition to the transferee  or purchaser and the licensing authority shall observe due care in the receipt and holding of any such firearm, rifle, shotgun or machine gun and ammunition; provided, however, that the purchaser or transferee shall affirm in writing that the purchaser or transferee shall not in violation of section 129C transfer the firearms, rifles, shotguns or machine guns or ammunition to the former owner.

The licensing authority shall at the time of delivery or surrender inform the person in writing of the authority’s ability, within 1 year after delivery or surrender, to transfer the firearms, rifles, shotguns and machine guns and ammunition to any licensed dealer OR OTHER PERSON LEGALLY PERMITTED, (as in licensed) TO PURCHASE OR TAKE POSSESSION.

 

In my opinion, reasoning to the contrary does not reflect what H.4376, passed on 8-13-2014, clearly states in the above section. As this outline does not describe a transfer of ownership or use of an FA-10 form, it is merely a written transfer to another licensed individual taking custody, not ownership of the firearms until any disqualifying conditions have been dropped. It is true that a licensed individual can sell up to four firearms in a year, and more through an FFL but it is also true that this cannot be done legally by someone with a suspended license, so it does not pertain for this transfer.

 

NOTE: If the police don’t know, or pretend not to know this about this law, and refuse to research it or turn over the firearms/ammo, your second step should be to send the police chief the request by certified mail return receipt. If then he will not be reasonable your next step would be to go to court and petition a judge, who is supposed to know the laws, he should inform the police to release the firearms to you per law, see Gun Sense #13, Petition for Judicial Review. I hope no one has to go to this extreme, but guns can be a big tug of war…..

ADDITIONAL NOTE: Section 44. Said section 129D of said chapter 140, as so appearing, is hereby further amended by inserting after the third paragraph the following paragraph:-If the licensing authority cannot reasonably ascertain a lawful owner within 180 days of acquisition by the authority, the authority may, in its discretion, trade or dispose of surplus, donated, abandoned or junk firearms, rifles, shotguns or machineguns or ammunition to properly licensed distributors or firearms dealers. The proceeds of the sale or transfer shall be remitted or credited to the municipality in which the authority presides to purchase weapons, equipment or supplies or for violence reduction or suicide prevention; provided, however, that no firearm, rifle, shotgun or machinegun or ammunition classified as having been used to carry out a criminal act pursuant to section 131Q shall be considered surplus, donated, abandoned or junk for the purpose of this section. 

Note: Section 44 is a  great incentive for the police to cling to the firearms and to block transfer under any pretense to someone you would want to hold them for you pending any court decision. Legal/illegal theft of valuable property is what this section could be used for. So stalling for 180 days would be in their best interest. Contact the Commonwealth Second Amendment Lawyers if this happens, the link is at my website. 

Also, there are no stipulations in H.4376 as to a 209A vs. any other reason why the police would not turn the guns over to a licensed individual.

I hope this is helpful, of course it may not be applicable to cover all reasons for confiscation.

Whose Guns need to be controlled?

There’s no doubt America needs to curb gun use and possession, the question is whose guns? There are 34,500 members on the NYPD, and in 2012 they fatally shot 16 people. That gives Bloomberg’s former army a rate of 46 shooting deaths per 100,000, killing people at a clip that dwarfs any civilian level in the country…..

To put it into perspective, Chicago, an American city known for gun violence, hit its peak murder rate of 34 per 100,000 in 1992. American law enforcement is increasingly militarized, why? Radley Balko reports in his book ‘Rise of the Warrior Cop’: “Driven by martial rhetoric and the availability of military style equipment, from bayonets and M-16 rifles, to armored personnel carriers, American police forces have often adopted a mindset previously reserved for the battlefield”. So while gun violence has markedly declined, why the police military buildup? What do they think they are preparing to do?

While Bloomberg is squaring up to spread irrational fears about armed Mormon cattle ranchers and NRA members gone wild, we should be more worried about guns in the hands of the police. One ‘unidentified’, (to protect the guilty) Connecticut police officer recently stated that he can hardly wait until he gets the order to kick in doors to confiscate firearms……I guess he just needs the go ahead from oath breaking politicians to gleefully become a state sanctioned thief….

For Bloomberg to further his agenda he is counting/playing on the majority of the public’s ignorance about guns to push his disarmament agenda/scheme for CONTROL, a time honored tactic of any tyrant worth his weight in lies…..

The biggest most irresponsible gun owner in the country isn’t some redneck or a deranged teen plotting a massacre from his basement; it is the STATE in my opinion. There is a lot of history to back that opinion up. Governments have been responsible for wholesale genocide throughout history…..but first the People had to be disarmed….!

Laws of any sort can not prevent bad human behaviors. The term ‘Crime Prevention’ means nothing to any educated person in the gun control debate.

Can violence be ‘prevented’ by any law? If laws did ‘prevent’ bad things from happening there would be no violent crimes, or crime at all. Is that the case? Anywhere in the world, NO. Example, prisons are the most controlled places on earth, and there is plenty of crime/violence/murder going on inside those locked little societies. How then can laws/wishful thinking prevent violence in an open free society? It can’t.

We need laws of course, I am not saying that we don’t. They are in place to prosecute the people that are caught after they commit the crimes that are against these laws, that’s all, if they get caught at all. The police are the clean up crew, after the gruesome crime/fact.  Mainly they are revenue collectors with quota’s to fill for the state coffers from people they know are working for a living, speeding tickets and such.  Tougher to get money from criminals….they can’t.

Can any law keep guns out of the hands of criminals? Of course not. The ‘gun ban’ crowd knows this, they claim their cause is to stop crimes with guns, they hope the majority of the public can not see through that lie. Their aim is disarmament of law abiding citizens, plain and simple. Why? CONTROL, hard to CONTROL the masses if they are ‘allowed’ to have firearms…….

So remember this, any candidate(s) that are spouting ‘gun control’ are liars bent on control of YOU. Any gun owner who would vote for any candidate(s) that are spouting ‘gun control’ would be the equivalent of a turkey voting in favor of Thanksgiving!
