Attempting the Impossible

That's what the anti-gun fools are doing, every day. They really believe, in their ignorance, that making a LAW that says crooks can't be armed while committing their other crimes, will cause them to OBEY their laws, even while DISOBEYING all other laws, every day. It's an impossible dream, but they continue to pursue it. People who break laws for a living aren't going to obey their gun laws. Only the law-abiding do, and they aren't the problem. They obey gun laws, and are thus "easy targets" for those who DON'T obey laws. While pursuing this impossible dream, they don't have the time to come up with a REAL solution to the "gun violence" problem. They won't even consider one of the best solutions out there, arming the law-abiding, so they can shoot and kill some of those lawbreakers and by so doing, reduce gun violence generally--by getting rid of some of the illegally-armed criminals. Studies show that dead criminals don't shoot many people. (BBC)

Two Years' Wait

In Riverside, California, they've come up with a unique (unique?) way to limit the number of gun owners who can carry their guns. Just make 'em wait a long time to even be CONSIDERED. The guy in this story wanted to be able to carry a gun for protection against vicious animals in the wilderness, and applied for a permit. 28 months later, he's still waiting for the county to CONSIDER his application. The anti-gun fools make it as hard as possible to be able to exercise this constitutional RIGHT. You should not be required to get a PERMIT to be able to exercise a constitutional right. But the "powers that be" have decided that they have the right to REQUIRE one in order to carry a gun. The power to require a permit is the power to say "no." Meanwhile, they have the power to delay, delay, delay, hoping you'll just "give up" and go away. That is a usurpation of power, but nobody seems willing to do anything about it. (Desert Sun)

Lies, Lies, and Damned Lies!

The anti-cop fools continue to lie to get cops in trouble for doing their jobs, as they did in Ferguson, MO, where a cop shot and killed a giant thug while that thug was trying his best to kill him. That "hands up, don't shoot" crap they spouted was proven to be a lie, perpetrated by his thug friends. While it didn't get the cop jailed, it did cost him his job, and for what? For doing his job and protecting his own life. Here is the latest of many lies told to get cops in trouble, but unfortunately, for the liars, there was dash cam footage to PROVE them liars. It was a routine traffic stop with three subjects, one of which was clearly shown pulling a gun on the dash cam video. His "friends" lied, and said he was unarmed, had been "Tased," and was helpless. An obvious lie. Witnesses in such cases are usually only the "friends" of the victim, and without video evidence, can often make their lies stick, therefore ruining the lives of good cops who are only doing their jobs. This doesn't mean ALL such sroties are false, but that we should take them all with a "grain of salt," and not blindly believe the "testimony" of the victim's friends without other evidence. Cops don't set out to kill black men, but often are forced to do so in order to save their own lives, and the lives of other officers. Thugs will always try and incriminate the cops in such cases. So make them PROVE it. (Bearing Arms)

Criminals Don't Obey Laws

Any laws; they're CRIMINALS, after all. They commit crimes much more serious than simple gun laws, so why in hell should they be concerned with breaking a piddling little anti-gun law? Anybody who denies this is INSANE. It is undeniable. But anti-gun fools deny it by their every attempt to make laws for criminals to disobey. And they do. Every time a gun is used to commit violence on a legally unarmed populace, they demand more unenforceable anti-gun laws. Meanwhile criminals, and other bad guys routinely IGNORE them, giving them a distinct advantage over law-abiding people, who DO obey laws. A recent arrest in Chicago, one of the tightest gun laws cities in the nation, is an indicator. The perp was subject to MANY anti-gun laws. He was a known felon and drug dealer. Yet he had MANY guns, SOLD guns ILLEGALLY to other criminals, and sold drugs. The judge refused to grant bail because of the seriousness of the charges, which showed "hard core" criminality, and the knowledge he was a flight risk. And this is not an uncommon situation. Criminals are arrested with their illegally-obtained guns every day. the answer is to arm the law-abiding, but the anti-gun fools won't hear of it. They act like they don't know there are millions of criminals carrying guns, right now, and law-abiding people cannot defend against them. (Bearing Arms)

Dems' Exciting New Hope

The Dumocrats are really scraping the bottom of the barrel in their quest to find someone, ANYONE to be their "standard bearer" in the 2020 elections. After Oprah Winfrey made a "stirring speech" about the success of the sexual misconduct thing in Hollywood, instantly, Dumocrats seized upon Oprah to be a presidential candidate. Problem is, we know NOTHING about her political views, except they seem to be in line with the rest of the Hollywood liberals. And she also supports the liberal anti-gun fool laws that do NOTHING to limit gun violence. They must really be desperate if they think Oprah has a "snowball's chance in hell" of beating President Trump. They say Trump FEARS Oprah, but that's only in their fevered brains. They try and compare her to Trump, since both are TV performers. But she has NO knowledge or experience in running a massive bureaucracy, nor what to do about major problems. Trump does. (NRA-ILA)

Criminals Don't Obey Laws

Any laws; they're CRIMINALS, after all. They commit crimes much more serious than simple gun laws, so why in hell should they be concerned with breaking a piddling little anti-gun law that'll probably be dismissed, anyway? Anybody who denies this is INSANE. It is undeniable. But anti-gun fools deny it by their every attempt to make laws for criminals to disobey. And they do. Every time a gun is used to commit violence on a legally unarmed populace, they demand more unenforceable anti-gun laws. Meanwhile criminals, and other bad guys routinely IGNORE them, giving them a distinct advantage over law-abiding people, who DO obey laws.

Better Fired Than Dead

A clerk in a convenience store (that is conveniently not named) in Colorado Springs, Colorado, heard about several convenience store robberies where the clerk was shot or otherwise injured, and finally brought his gun to work. It was the right thing to do, because his store WAS the next one on the robbers' list. Two gunmen came in and pointed guns at his face, demanding money. Whereupon he drew his own gun and told them to get out. One shot him through the arm, He did not fire a shot, but they fled. All good, you say. Not to the executives of the unnamed convenience store. They fired him. His response? "I accept the risks. I understand working overnight at a gas station is dangerous, what I don't accept is a company that won't take care of those dangers for their employees and instead fires me for protecting myself.” This situation is caused by the liberal judges who allow suits by ROBBERS against those who resisted their efforts to rob them to proceed, and who gave out large "judgments" to the ROBBERS, even though they were committing a CRIME when they got in trouble. It's one thing not to do anything to protect its workers, but quite another to FIRE him for defending himself. In any case, it's not that hard to find another clerking job, and that's better than being dead. (AmmoLand)

Government Control


The "Gun Feed" used the same picture (soldiers executing citizens) to illustrate their article about "Gun Rights vs. Government Control," and it speaks better than words. It reminds us that there will always be people willing to commit murder if their government tells them it is okay. I've seen this picture before, in several places, though I don't know who took it, or why. It has always (to my knowledge) been used to illustrate the WRONGNESS of all anti-gun laws. Many other governments have BANNED guns for their citizens (like Hitler in Germany, and Russia, communist China, etc.), and later were found killing them, since they were absolutely DEFENSELESS. And law-abiding people ARE defenseless because they OBEY those laws, giving up their guns. But criminals, crazies, and Islamic terrorists do NOT, and they are able to "run wild," killing and robbing people who obey the gun laws. Liberal politicians keep telling us all they want to do is "stop the gun violence," though their laws never do. Gun violence continues, because the people who ARE the problem never bother to obey them. I have become convinced that those liberals simply want to disarm the populace so that, when they come to take what is theirs, they won't get shot in the process. (American Thinker)

"Don't Mess With Texas"

That's said by a lot of people, but it was never more true when a thug came into an Amarillo, Texas pizza store and attempted to take a hostage while trying to rob the store. Whereupon the store's assistant manager shot him to death. In any other state, that assistant manager would probably be fired for bringing his own gun to work, even though the danger of an armed robber--and maybe a murder--is a distinct possibility. But maybe not in Texas, where just about everybody has a gun and knows how to use it. Texas has managed to get rid of most of their liberal judges who allow criminals and their families to sue those who hurt or kill the thug when he tries to rob folks. Judges who also give huge "judgments" to those criminals or their families. Which changes the story for armed thugs. This again proves my contention that more armed law-abiding people CAN help reduce crime--by killing one criminal at a time. Also, it should be an item of law that a CRIMINAL or his family CANNOT sue for damages when a potential victim injures or kills a thug who is robbing them. (Breitbart)

They'll Use Anything

Anti-gun fools who have a little bit of power will use just about ANYTHING to take away your guns. Never mind that gun ownership and use is GUARANTEED in the Constitution of the United States. That can't just BAN guns, so they make as many laws as they can to make it difficult, if not impossible, for a law-abiding person to own and use them, One such law is New York's SAFE Law, which does many things to limit the rights of people who own guns. I won't go into them here because the article linked does it nicely. It is obvious that the "authorities" want to do everything they can to make law-abiding citizens HELPLESS to defend themselves against the millions of ILLEGAL guns already out there in the hands of thugs and Islamic terrorists. That's the only explanation I can see for the fact that every time they find someone having the means to defend themselves, they treat it as a criminal offense, and want to take them away from them.

Case in point is the stun gun. Currently, those are legal to own and use. But the cops routinely "confiscate" (steal) them when used. In New York's "SAFE Law, they require a LICENSE to exercise your constitutional RIGHT to be armed, and "re-certification" every five years. If you miss that deadline, for ANY reason, you can PERMANENTLY lose your constitutional right to own a gun and it gives the cops the power to TAKE all your guns, at GUNPOINT, if necessary. In Hawaii, if you place YOURSELF in a mental facility, again for ANY reason, they take away your guns. They stopped doing that because of public clamor, But that illustrates how they think. The point is, these laws only seem to apply to LEGAL gun owners (who aren't the problem), while the holders of ILLEGAL guns (Who are) ignore them. (Joe Huffman)

Same Ol' Same Ol'

Joseph Iser wrote an article for the Las Vegas Journal he titled. "A Prescription for Reducing Gun Deaths." which contains all the same old crap the anti-gun fools always come up with, and which have never worked. "Universal Background Check on everything gun sale, which has never stopped a single gun death. Better, safer gun storage, as usual making it harder to get the guns we have into action when we're threatened by a criminal who has his gun already pointed at us. Better education about guns, which we already have from the NRA, but which anti-gun fools routinely reject. Improved access to mental health resources, Stopping the law-abiding from being able to own guns like the "AR-15" while ignoring those who don't OBEY laws. as well as limited magazine capacity. All the same old, tired "gun control" failed plans. Like other anti-gun fools, he has to be aware these things do not work, but his "prescription to reduce gun violence" includes all of them. Nothing new here. Anti-gun fools never come up with anything that works, and keep repeating the same mistakes over and over. Isn't that the DEFINITION of insanity? Maybe anti-gun fools need better access to mental health facilities. (LV Review-Journal)

One Third In Chicago

The United States has seen a 9% INCREASE in homicides (by all methods) last year, and fully ONE-THIRD of those came from certain neighborhoods in Chicago, in spite of some of the tightest "gun laws" in the nation (Wall St. Journal). Chicago and Baltimore (another city with tight gun laws) have both seen a RISE in homicides while all other cities have seen a REDUCTION in homicides. Which pretty much tells us their tight gun laws don't work. If people of average intelligence can see that, why can't the liberals in charge in those cities? In Chicago, murders have increased 57%. Chicago has had more murders than Los Angeles (in gun-hating California) and New York City COMBINED. So much for tough gun laws. The evidence against the laws sponsored by anti-gun fools and consented to by ignorant politicians is mounting, but liberal politicians (and some conservatives) just can't see it. We need to remove such people from positions where they can make such laws and find somebody who can figure out something REAL ro put a stop to gun violence in big cities. If we don't, we're all going to suffer. (iPatriot)

Gun Control Is Useless

The figures (real ones, not the ones posted by anti-gun fools) show that states that are side-by-side with different gun laws have similar gun death rates. Maryland and Georgia, for inststance: Georgia is a "permissive" gun state, while Maryland is not. But both have almost identical gun death rates. California and Texas are not side-by-side in anything except their gun laws. Texas is "permissive," while California is not. Gun laws there are very tight. But per capita gun deaths are similar. All this proves that current gun laws don't do ANYTHING to limit gun deaths. Gun control fools know this (or should) but it makes no difference to them in the laws they make. Of course, most states have laws that prescribe stiffer penalties fot the use of a gun in committing a crime. But those laws are commonly NOT enforced. They are used as "bargaining chips" to get convictions in other crimes. That smacks of lazy prosecutors, to me, as well as some lazy police work. Then, of course, there is the practice of anti-gun fools to include suicides in their "gun crime" stats to inflate their figures. so you can't depend on ANY figures they give you. (Washington Examiner)

When Will They Learn?

Anti-gun fools say, "Easy access to dangerous firearms is opening Americans to attacks from violent extremists." This statement reflects a level of STUPIDITY that should not be prevalent among people who are supposed to be smart enough to run things for the rest of us. Tell me: when have you ever seen an extremist who cares a whit about obeying the law? No; they get their guns anywhere they can, and if they can't get it legally, they get it ILLEGALLY. What are these people smoking that keeps them from seeing something so obvious to intelligent people? Whatever it is, it seems to affect all the anti-gun fools. They make USELESS and ineffective laws that "bad guys" routinely ignore. And when we talk about allowing more law-abiding people to have and carry guns for self defense, they laugh at us and never even consider it. They think (erroneously) that if the average person had a gun in his pocket, he'd "run wild," shooting everything up. That's all part of their stupidity. Anti-gun laws, as they are now, DO NOT WORK. It's time somebody realized that, and acknowledged it, and did something about it. But that's not going to happen. The anti-gun fools aren't intelligent enough. (The Independent)
