I'm Gonna Say It Again

And again and again until it sinks into the feeble minds of all those FOOLS who blame the GUN when some ignorant FOOL takes a gun and kills a bunch of innocent people they find in bunches. We need more people in those groups with “carry permits.” People these “shooters” don’t know are there, who can shoot them before they can kill more than one or two people. Getting rid of guns isn’t going to solve the problem. Guns EXIST. You can’t “uninvent” them. “Bad guys” will ALWAYS be able to get their guns while people who OBEY laws won’t. If Frank DeAngelis, principal at Columbine High School, had had a gun when he “looked around a corner and watched one of the shooters killing people” he could have “put a couple in the head of the shooter” and ended at least that one shooter’s “kill score,” then go after, and kill the other. As it was, all he could do was “hide and watch” as the shooter murdered students and teachers. One of these days we MIGHT find a COMPETENT politician who will realize this and put a stop to “no gun zones,” which are “open invitations” to shooters who want to spray bullets into crowds of people. (Just common sense)

Chinese Media Demands U. S. Gun Control

What the hell business is it of theirs? Who do they think they ARE? They want us to violate one of our most basic precepts, the right to be armed for self-defense. There is no Second Amendment in China. No First Amendment, either. Anything in their press is “approved” by their government, so that’s their government attempting to tell US what to do. They don’t have that right, and should just SHUT UP! When the human rights of their citizens begin to be respected, maybe we MIGHT listen to them. Until then, they can just STAY OUT OF OUR BUSINESS! Even if banning guns would work (which it won’t), it’s not their business to tell us how to run OUR country. (English

Our Moron Government

We’re being governed by MORONS. Obama’s “big thing” is taxing “the rich” at a higher rate than anyone else. These are the people who CREATE JOBS and make the economy grow. And “Obama the stupid” wants to punish them for that because when they do it they tend to make a lot of money for themselves as well as the rest of the country. Such thinking is simply JEALOUSY by people who haven’t been able to make as much as they do, therefore they want to PUNISH them for doing it. Taxing the rich at higher rates doesn’t even make the government a lot of money, What Obama proposes will, if he does it, allow him to run the government for 12 DAYS. So it doesn’t even solve most of his financial problems, which are OVERSPENDING. He spends money like it was water and expects others to pay the bills he (and his wife) builds up. Taxing the rich at a higher rate is an old communist tactic, and has never worked anywhere they tried it.

France, which is now run by an open socialist, are doing the same thing, and that is GOING TO ruin their economy, just as Obama’s socialist policies are ruining ours. How do we get such incompetent, stupid people running things? They appeal to the MOOCHERS of society; the people who want a “free ride” at the expense of others. And they VOTE. So they can continue to vote such stupid fools as Obama into office so he can STEAL from the very people who keep the economy going while claiming they “don’t pay their fair share” while they ARE. The “rich” pay their fair share and a LOT more. The top 25% earners in this country pay 86% of income taxes paid! How much more does it take for you to realize they pay MORE than “their fair share? We need to get rid of the FOOLS running our government, as soon as possible or we will go down along with the European socialist governments that are going down like dominoes. How many more times must I write this before SOMEBODY listens and does something about it? (Just common sense)

"Gun-Free Zones"

Except for those carried by criminals and crazies wanting to shoot everybody in sight, that is. People who obey laws obey gun laws. Criminals don’t. The other day, such a fool murdered 20 CHILDREN, some as young as 5. the day before another killed at least two people in another shopping center shooting. The news media went “wall-to-wall with it. In Denver, at least one radio station spent the entire DAY into the night talking about it. I’m sure this happened all over the country, maybe even the world. And they should, because somebody killing a bunch of CHILDREN is a real tragedy. What did these two shootings gave in common? They were both “gun-free zones.” But what about that shooting last year in a GUN SHOP where the guy shot a clerk and was instantly made into “Swiss cheese” by the rest of the clerks, including the one he shot? It was a news item for a few hours and then “sank like a stone.” Except for the Indianapolis media, nobody was interested in the story. Why? Because the victim was armed and able to defend himself. Even the “anti-gun crazies” shut up about it because this kind of story, where the victim was armed, just didn’t fit their narrative. I’ve always noticed that such shootings didn’t happen at gun shows or anywhere else where everybody was armed, and for a good reason. In “gun-free zones” like schools and the like, they might as well put up a sign saying, “No guns here. We’re defenseless. Come on in and shoot us.”

Yes, such shootings are bad. But trying to eliminate guns to stop them is illogical and STUPID. The GUN didn’t kill these people. The man HOLDING the gun did. If he couldn’t get a gun (doubtful) he’d find something else to use in killing innocent people. Anybody who BELIEVES that a CRIMINAL, who violates the law for a LIVING, will OBEY a law saying he can’t be armed is STUPID. And that includes all those stupid politicians who think so, including our illustrious president . I’m getting very tired of repeating this and having it fall on deaf ears while more and more people DIE because of this rampant STUPIDITY. I’m still waiting for our incompetent politicians to WAKE UP and realize that the ONLY WAY to eliminate such atrocities is to allow as many GOOD people as possible to be armed, including in those ubiquitous “gun-free zones” for self defense so the crazies and criminals won’t be FREE to kill innocent people. It is a PROVEN FACT that where there are MORE GUNS in the hands of innocent people, violent crime goes DOWN. In Florida, where getting a carry permit is easy, the violent crime rate has PREDICTABLY gone DOWN wile the deaths and injuries to armed CRIMINALS has gone UP. In Israel, where EVERYBODY is armed (even school teachers) there ARE no mass shootings. There cannot be more OBVIOUS evidence this is true. But our anti-gun politicians are blissfully IGNORANT of this fact. They’re PURPOSELY ignorant of facts that do not advance their narrative. (

Learning From Israel on Gun Control

Yes, they have gun control in Israel, but theirs is more logical and workable. Thus, guns are EVERYWHERE in Israel. That’s because gun permits are EASY to get there and their requirements are both reasonable and logical. One of my favorite news items featured an Israeli woman standing astride a Muslim terrorist pumping bullets into his head. SCHOOLTEACHERS are armed in Israel because teaching school is considered a dangerous profession. Consequentially, mass shootings in “gun-free zones” are almost non-existent because there ARE none. Whenever anybody tries a mass shooting he winds up looking like a piece of “Swiss cheese” because there are so many guns there. But do Israelis go about shooting one another with abandon? No. But if you take a gun to an Israeli, you’re going to die. (The College Conservative)

Some People Should Die

Others don’t even deserve to have ever LIVED. One such is the man who murdered his own SISTER (after murdering his own grandmother and spending time in prison for it), then set his own house on fire to lure UNPAID firemen (who only do good, and don’t even get paid for it) to his home so he could kill them. The only reason he only killed TWO of these “good Samaritans” is that an off-duty policeman showed up and stopped him, making him commit suicide. The liberal media didn’t report that, because it doesn’t fit into their anti-gun narrative. Others are Islamic terrorists, who only LIVE to KILL people who don’t believe exactly as they do; another is the shooter who murdered 20 innocent CHILDREN who has never done him any harm, and all the other shooters who lately have PROVEN to me that we need to not only have the RIGHT to keep a gun and carry it without restriction for our own protection, it needs to happen, NOW. The “anti-gun fanatics” decry that, saying, “Why should we allow everybody to be armed? That would just create a 'wild West atmosphere' where more people will be killed.” Not so! And a stupid statement, at best, because it’s a proven fact that where “gun laws” are the tightest, the easier guns are to get illegally.

Anybody who WANTS a gun, for good or evil, can get one easily, NOW. And it’s much better for responsible people to be armed, so as to defend themselves and make illegally armed criminals DEAD. Robert Heinlein said, “An armed society is a polite society” and the “wild west” proved it. Bad guys who misused their guns were soon DEAD, making gun misuse a disappearing problem. Yes, there would eventually be some gun killings—in self-defense more than for any other reason. And that’s a GOOD thing, for it quickly thins the ranks of ILLEGALLY-armed criminals. Some people are only still alive because it is ILLEGAL to kill them. Some of those people are the liberal media who consistently MIS-report, or do not at all report stories that would tend to prove their anti-gun rhetoric false. But even if I DID have a gun “legally,” I wouldn’t kill such people because it is ILLEGAL to kill them and I am a responsible human being. The kind of person they don’t understand. They think if people were allowed to carry their own guns, that people would be shooting each other with wild abandon, all over the place. And they’re WRONG. Responsible people don’t do that and they don't understand that.

These people are FOOLS and shouldn’t be allowed to be in a position to REPORT the news. But we have a First Amendment, which is just as important as the Second, which they’re trying their best to eliminate. Frankly, if they EVER get rid of the Second Amendment, they should do likewise with the First, at the same time, because the First made it POSSIBLE to get rid of the Second. When you talk about getting rid of the First, they whine about it, all the while trying to get rid of the Second. The fact is, the Second Amendment is there ONLY so we can defend ourselves from IRRESPONSIBLE people who do not OBEY any laws, let alone ones that say they can’t be armed while they commit their crimes. It’s not there for hunters, though it DOES protect them, as well. The “toothpaste is out of the tube.” Guns EXIST. They cannot be “uninvented.” So we have to DEAL with them logically. Making laws against them is NOT logical. It not only does not work, it causes more people to be KILLED by those unscrupulous criminals who will ALWAYS be able to get them ILLEGALLY.

Beating It to Death

I know the mass shooting in Connecticut is a major tragedy, having ended so many lives, particularly of those small children who can’t have done ANYTHING to have hurt the shooter. But, as with the Columbine shooting and all the others, the news media “beats it to death” until we are TIRED of hearing about every belch uttered by ANYBODY that has ANY connection to the shootings. Three days after the Connecticut shooting (as this is written), I STILL can’t avoid more and more stories about really tiny things connected with it on every station I turn to. It’s disgusting. It’s as if there isn’t any other news in the world. Some of those shooters do it for the notoriety involved, and the fact that the media "beats it to death" makes them very happy. It's now Christmas day and there have been several more mass shootings since, including the one in New York, where a guy set a house on fire to draw firemen, then opened fire on them, killing two, before he killed himself and most likely his own sister, as well. I don't know who he is, and I don't care. On that somber note, I want to wish everybody a MERRY CHRISTMAS! None of that "Happy Holidays" crap here. Any celebration of the birthday of Jesus Christ ought to carry His name, whether you believe or not. This will be the only post today, as I celebrate Christmas with my family. (Just common sense)

Criticized For Common Sense

Perennial NRA VP Wayne LaPierre spoke common sense and has been vilified for it by the ignorant people who think the way to self defense is to DISARM themselves and hope the illegally armed criminals will leave them alone, a forlorn hope. In his press conference the other day he said what amounts to one thing: “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is to oppose him with a good guy with a gun.” There is NO other way. When such a shooter starts shooting, what do they do? Call for somebody with a gun to oppose him. Unfortunately that doesn’t work, because the nearest good guy with a gun is usually at LEAST ten minutes away while an armed and trained EMPLOYEE of that school or shopping center is RIGHT THERE; a lot closer than the nearest cop. Such shooters can kill a lot of people in the first couple of minutes while the cop drives to the scene. That supposed NRA member who cut up his NRA membership card on television is STUPID. He has no other answer to this problem, but he condemns the answer the NRA gave him out of IGNORANCE.

Nobody else has a viable answer, but THEY criticize LaPierre for providing the ONLY viable answer there is: at least ONE PERSON at every school, unknown to the shooter, with a gun, trained and ready to oppose would-be mass shooters. Such people can’t offer their own solution, and criticize LaPierre’s solution out of IGNORANCE. Yes, a UNIFORMED cop at every school would stand out, and become the FIRST TARGET of a would-be shooter. But a teacher or other staff member people are used to seeing around, but who don’t know are armed, CAN stop a would-be shooter by killing him before he can shoot a lot of people. John Lott, author of “More Guns, Less Crime,” has PROVEN that more guns in the hands of responsible people who are trained in its use, can, and DOES reduce crime, wherever it has been tried. On the other hand, it has been PROVEN beyond doubt that “gun-free zones” are an OPEN INVITATION to people who want to come in and murder masses of people. The only answer our government offers is MORE GUN CONTROL and that doesn’t work. The literal definition of INSANITY is to do the same thing over and over, expecting a different result. That’s all they can offer, yet the world seems to accept it. (The Philly Post)

Anti-Gun Lies

Some time ago, the liberal magazine “Mother Jones” did a “study” that showed that in not one case had a multi-victim killing been stopped by an armed citizen. Only one problem: that’s a lie, told by simply ELIMINATING all shootings that were stopped by a gun in the hands of a citizen. Not reported in ANY news source is the fact that in Portland, there was a man there who had not noticed the signs saying that mall was a “gun-free zone” and carried his licensed gun into the mall. Everyone wonders why this shooter committed suicide after killing only a few people while firing a lot of shots. What nobody reported is that while reloading, he saw this man taking aim at him and committed suicide. In Colorado Springs, Colorado, a shooter coming into a church to do a mass killing was shot by a lone armed woman the church CLAIMS was a “security guard,” but who was in actuality simply a parishioner who happened to be armed and was asked by the church to “act as a security guard” while there. Other cases are: The Mayan Palace Theater in San Antonio, TX where an off-duty cop shot the shooter, preventing any civilian deaths; A Winnemucca, NV restaurant shooting where a licensed gun owner killed the would-be mass killer before more than two were killed;

The Appalachian School of Law, where two armed students stopped a would-be mass killer and captured him before he could kill more than a few people; In Santee, CA, a “trained campus supervisor (an off-duty cop bringing his daughter to school) “threw down” on the shooter, holding him for the cops after he was only able to kill two fellow students; At Pearl High School in Mississippi, the principal armed himself from his car when a student started killing his fellow students and held him for the cops after only two deaths; In Edinboro, PA, a student starts shooting up a restaurant gathering of students, and is stopped by a shotgun-wielding restaurant owner. By contrast, shootings at other places where NO GUNS are allowed report many deaths. In another case, a man tried to shoot up a GUN STORE and was made into “Swiss cheese” by the store employees and their customers. This sounds like “Mother Jones” is LYING to support the “anti-gun” agenda. Other anti-gun freaks likewise LIE when they release the “results” of THEIR phony “studies.” The lesson to be learned here is that these people don’t hesitate to LIE to  support their agenda, so never believe ANYTHING they tell you. (Ann Coulter)

"Mall Shooting!" "Ban Guns!"

That’ll be the cry; mark my words. The anti-gun fanatics ALWAYS “blame the guns” whenever some crazy goes out and shoots some innocent people. But the gun didn’t go crazy, a PERSON did, then picked up the gun. The gun didn’t do anything but what it was DESIGNED to do. We’ll either find out the gun was legally bought by a guy who “had no priors,” or ILLEGALLY by either somebody too young to own a gun, who is already a criminal or a known crazy. They won’t admit that gun laws can DO NOTHING to stop people who are DETERMINED to kill people from doing it. If they can’t get one legally, they’ll go out and buy one ILLEGALLY in a back alley somewhere, out of another criminal’s car trunk I really get tired of making this argument and being ignored, while honest people (including me) are kept from owning and carrying the means to their own self defense while criminals go about carrying their illegal guns hunting us. I’m still waiting for a politician, ANY politician, to answer the question, “What makes you think a CRIMINAL, who breaks laws for a LIVING, will OBEY a law that says he can’t be armed?” (Huffington Post)

What Was Different in the Forties?

In the forties [when I went to school –RT] there just WERE no school shootings like the Sandy Hook school shooting that claimed the lives of 20 small children and six adults. There were NO such shootings then, and it was not unusual for children to actually bring guns to school with them. Those kids often used those guns to provide food for the table.  Then they made a law against it and opened the floodgates. Writer Dave Kopel wrote about that very thing. “Kopel says that for most of America’s history ‘it was not uncommon for students to bring guns to school.’ He cites a column in which John Lane reminisces about his youth in the 1940s and 1950s, and says that he ‘attempted to find a school shooting from that era,’ but ‘came up empty.’ On the following page Kopel goes further, passing on the claim that ‘before the 1990 [Gun-Free School Zone Act], there had been only seven shootings at an American school in the previous 214 years,’ and that ‘in the 17 years following the GFSZA, there were 78 such incidents.’ ’’ Something’s wrong here. without such laws, there were NO such shootings, and after that law was passed there were 78, compared with only SEVEN in the previous 214 years! The difference is such shooters now KNOW there will be NO GUNS in schools so they are PRIME TARGETS. That’s the difference. (Student Activism)
