Man oh man, what a weekend. My wife and I left Jasper Texas around 6 am Friday morning, got breakfast at Jack in the box in Woodville Texas, and arrived at the NRA show at the 9 am. Traffic was not that bad. thank goodness there were no wrecks on HWY 59.
We found a parking lot directly in front of Minute Maid park, which is across from the George R Brown convention center. Holy crap was parking expensive, we had to pay $30, but the location was perfect.
My wife and I entered the show, obtained our media badges, then started walking around.
This was my wifes first real gun show. She never showed any interest in gun shows, that was until I built her a pink M4. Now that she has something she can relate to she is showing more interest.
Well, well, well, good ole Dianne Feinstein just got her socialist anti-gun bill slapped down, and by one of her own. Harry Reid will not include an assault rifle and magazine ban in the newly proposed gun legislation.
The ban Feinstein wanted will be presented in a separate bill, one that will surely fail to pass.
Several member of the Democratic Party are up for reelection in 2014. A lot of those seats are in districts that vote for Republicans and Democrats. If some kind of ban does pass, it is almost assured the Democrats will lose votes, which will result in losing seats in the House and Senate.
If the Democrats lose seats in the 2014 election, Obama will be a lame duck president. With the Republican controlled congress, it is unlikely Obama will be able to get any new laws passed.
Why wont Dianne Feinsteins assault rifle ban get passed? Because our right to keep and bear arms is protected by the 2nd amendment, and there is too much money involved.
We are just now leaving a recession, the one thing the economy does not need it factories closing and hudnreds of people losing their jobs.
The problem is, liberals don to care about our rights, nor do they care about jobs, nor do they care about the economy. Lose a job? It’s ok, get some Obama care and sign up on welfare. After all, very few of the people losing their jobs live in California. So why should Feinstein care if thousands of people lose their jobs?
I think everyone who loses their jobs from a rifle ban should move to California, and then sign up on welfare. Those California liberals do not care if you have a job, so let them pay for your welfare.
Does the bone address gang and drug related crime?
Does the bone address protecting our borders from illegal drugs?
Does the bone address job training for criminals?
Does the bone address anything crime related?
The gun control bone the liberals are slobbering all over addresses nothing.
Background checks, so what? Its not like gang members are going to go through background checks.
10 round magazines, so what? Lets say all magazines over 10 rounds had to be turned into the government. If law enforcement can not stop the flow of illegal drugs into the nation, how are we supposed to stop the new market for 30 round magazines?
There are 20 – 30 million illegal immigrants in the United States. But for some reason magazines will not be imported?
Do we remember what happened with prohibition?
The government has been unable to stop the flow of anything into the country – weed, crack, cocaine, heroine, booze,,, and the list goes on and gone.
But for some reason gangs and criminals will not import 30 round magazines?
Address the real issues related to gun violence
If the government “really” wanted to do something about gun violence, stop the flow of illegal drugs.
Take repeat violent offenders off the streets.
Break up the gangs.
Offer education and job training to criminals.
Offer people a way of life besides crime.
Obama, nor the liberals want to talk about the root causes of gun violence. Instead of addressing the cause of gun violence, obama will throw the slobbering liberals a bone to keep them happy.
Lets just go ahead and say it, are gun hating liberals stupid? Did they sleep through US history while in high school and college? Did they sleep through the various government classes at school? Do they never watch the History channel? Do they never celebrate the 4th of July?
If gun haters had paid attention during history class they may have understood why the 2nd Amendment ensures the right of the people to keep and bear arms – so we will never be subjugated. We are citizens, not subjects.
Do the gun haters think the British let the founding fathers form a nation? Exactly “how” did the United States come into being? I am pretty sure George Washington and Benjamin Franklin did not blog the Red Coats into leaving.
The founding fathers rallied the people, who bought their hunting rifles into battle, and they killed the British. The United States was founded with blood, musket balls and gun powder, and not pen and paper.
How difficult is it to understand that gun ownership is not about hunting. The 2nd Amendment is about protecting ourselves from an overzealous government. No matter how corrupt the government becomes, now matter how many rights are striped away, the people have the tools needed to put the government in its place.
Maybe U.S. history should be the corner stone of our education system? Maybe liberals need to spend time in a Chinese prison?
Are gun haters blind, deaf and dumb, or are they just stupid?
The path to hell is paved with good intentions. While liberals have good intentions, they are paving a major highway straight to hell.
Do you know what gun owners need? This will shut those gun hating liberals up for good.
What we need is an armed protest at the capital of all 50 states, including Washington D.C.
Washington D.C. has prohibited 30 round magazines, so everyone should bring their AR-15s and AK-47s loaded with 30 round magazines. Then dare the Washington D.C. police to arrest 10,000+ armed protestors.
Gun owners are not those sissy occupy wall street protestors, free men carry guns, gun owners carry guns.
There are times when free men should talk, there are times when free men should vote, and then there are times when free men should stand up and say “hell no.”
We are getting close to the “hell no” phase.
Gun owners should step up with a show of force. The government will not take our guns away, nor shall our rights be “restricted.”
If anything needs to be restricted, its people like Dianne Feinstein need to be restricted from holding any kind of public office. If she was talking about restricting abortion, or restricting immigration like she was doing with guns, she would probably be voted out of office in the next election.
We have let organizations like the NRA carry the torch long enough. It’s time law abiding gun owners step up to bat, and tell the government to piss off.
Here is a concept I want to share with you. All of this talk about gun control is not about protecting the public, its about the law makers being scared. Law makers are scared someone will walk into their building and start shooting. Instead of students laying on the ground dead, lawmakers envision themselves being dead.
If law makers truly cared about the health and well being of the public, why is smoking still legal? Why can companies dump chemicals and nothing is done?
If law makers cared about the public, why are fish contaminated with mercury?
Gun control is not about protecting the public. If the government wanted to protect the public, outlaw cigarettes and other tobacco products. Outlaw chemicals that have been linked to attention disorders in children.
Gun control is about protecting congress from people who are fed up with government.
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. People are fed up with high taxes, people are fed up with the government bailing out the banks, people are fed up with the government protecting wall street,,,, people are fed up.
Instead of worrying about gun control, maybe congress needs to stop bailing out wall street. That way law makers will not have a guilty conscience.
Armed citizens are the threat to an out of control government. That threat must be neutralized.
With a disarmed populace, government is free to do whatever they want, and without worry of recourse.
The nation is reaching a point of no return with taxes, liberalism, jobs and national debt. We owe more money then we can ever hope to pay back, our factories have gone to china, home ownership is out of reach of most working class people,,,.
Congress is worried that when the average working class people realize how their government has screwed them over, there will be hell to pay. As in the Adam Lanza type of hell.
The Communist Senator Dianne Feinstein is purposing all firearms be registered, and all gun owners go through a background check for said guns.
The answer is NO, I will not register my guns.
Just as reading a bible is a right, and going to church, writing a book, reading a newspaper, voting, right to due process under the law, right to trial by jury, right to legal council, right to a speedy trial,, are all rights, and so is gun ownership.
Gun ownership is a right, and will treated no differently then any other right.
When I have to register my bible, I will register my guns.
When I have to register my blog, I will register my guns.
When I have to have a permit to read a newspaper, I will register my guns.
When I have to have a permit to read a news website, I will register my guns.
The rights of the people are upheld by three courses of action – right to vote, the courts and the right to keep and bear arms. All three of which do not require a permit, nor do we have to register. Well, we have to register to vote, but that is to make sure people do not vote more then once.
Everytime there is an incident of gun related violence, it seems the crazies start coming out the woodwork like roaches in a wood pile.
Do gun haters just not understand what the 2nd amendment is about, or are they just stupid?
Lets take this video about an anti-gun rally.
Place the blame where it belongs, on mentally ill people.
Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 people, and did not use a single gun.
Adam Lanza murdered 26 people.
What did Jeffrey Dahmer and Adam Lanza have in common? Both of them were mentally ill.
If we want to make society safe, lets keep mentally ill people locked away from the general public. Whether its a gun, a knife, baseball bat,,,, mentally ill people will find a way to kill others.
The true purpose of the 2nd Amendment
Our forefathers established the 2nd amendment for a reason. George Washington did not write the British to death, he took up arms, established a militia, and killed the British.
This nation was founded and protected through the private ownership of guns.
Who protected New Orleans during the war of 1812? It was a bunch of men with their hunting rifles.
Who protected the United States when there was no Army, no Marines and no Navy? It was the everyday people.
If the United States were to be invaded, who would step up to protect the nation? It would be the armed citizens.
There is an old saying, the pen is mightier then the sword.
I would like to add a second part to that saying, “when the pen and the sword both fail to delivery the needed results, you pick up your rifle and the kill the enemy.”
Did the British give up because of what some newspaper wrote about King George III? The people that wrote negatively about the King of England were imprisoned. Our forefathers took up arms and killed every red coat they saw.
Did Mexico peacefully hand over Texas? It was armed citizens who beat General Santa Anna at the battle of San Jacinto on 21 April 1836 that won Texas its independence.
Hitler did not give up because of what some newspaper wrote about him. Our great grandfathers invaded Germany, bombed the hell out of it, and killed every nazi they saw. World War II was won by guns, bombs, gun powder and bullets. Pen and paper did not convince the nazis to give up.
Where did the guns for World War II come from? From factories that made civilian weapons before the war started.
It is the duty of every United States citizen to contribute something to national security. The United States will never be invaded. Why is that? Because we have 9 guns for every 10 people. No other nation in the world is as armed and ready for war as the United States.
The gun haters do not care about national security, nor do they not care about your rights.
The 2nd Amendment does two things, it protects our nation, and it protects our government. When the pen fails to protect the government, the 2nd Amendment ensures the people have the ability to protect the government through force.
Lets start with this simple statement: It is the duty of every citizen to be armed.
99% of the liberals out there will object to that statement. So let me follow up with some evidence to back up by statement.
Thomas Jefferson – For a people who are free and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.
Thomas Jefferson – “We must train and classify the whole of our male citizens, and make military instruction a regular part of collegiate education. We can never be safe till this is done.”
As per Thomas Jefferson, it is our duty as citizens to own and to be trained in the use of a firearm, and to have a proper education.
When the U.S. was founded, there was no provisioned military. It was the civilian militia that fought for our freedom.
The problem is, liberals do not understand the concept of personal liberties, personal freedoms or civic duties.
Civic duty supports the idea of the armed citizen, which supports the armed militia It is the duty of every able bodied male to answer to call to arms to protect the nation.
How are you supposed to do your duty as an able bodied adult if you do not own a firearm?
When was the last time you saw the police harass armed protestors?
When was the last time you saw the police firing rubber bullets or bean bags on unarmed protestors?
During the occupy movement there was a guy who showed up at a protest armed with an AK-47. The person was interviewed by the police, and nothing ever happened.
In just all 50 states, except 2 or 3, it is perfectly legal to carry a long arm in public.
The guy with the AK-47 was well within his rights, and was not prohibited by state law to carry his rifle.
It sure was funny how the local government officials and police reacted when an armed citizen showed up.
Not a single rubber bullet or bean bag round was fired that day.
Think about it for a minute, just about every act of police violence has been carried out on unarmed citizens.
What happened when the ATF tried to raid the Branch Davidians in Waco? The ATF got the crap shot out of them. Next time serve your search warrants and arrest warrants like law abiding agents of the government. Go around breaking into windows, you can expect to get shot like common criminals.
Private ownership of firearms is not about citizens protecting us from each other. Private gun ownership is about protecting the people from an abusive government.
