Support for more gun control is waning across all political parties, including liberals and democrats. This should be common sense, gun control does not reduce violent crime. Criminals do not care about laws. Society should take the people who mental problems and ensure they receive help.
Democrats (from 79% to 71%)
Liberals (from 75% to 67%)
Women (from 69% 55%)
Republicans (from 39% to 29%)
If democrats and liberals want to reduce violent crime:
1. Open community colleges in low income housing areas. Make attendance mandatory for anyone living in public housing. Provide people on welfare with a clear path out of poverty. Democrats however would rather keep people in poverty than provide them with a path out of poverty. As long as people are poor and dependent on the government, they will continue to vote democrat.
When people lose hope of bettering themselves, they figure they have nothing to lose. So what if they go out in a rain of gunfire, at least they get their name in the news.
2. Make mental health services free to the public, regardless of income levels. We as a society need to remove the stigma from mental health. If someone has a problem, society as a whole needs to address said problem.
In a capitalist society we are taught we either sink or swim. You either work and provide for yourself, or you sink into poverty.
Mental illness and poverty are like oil and water, they do not go well with each other. Those who need the help the most are unable to afford it.
3. End school bullying. Establish a national awareness program to end bullying.
The path is clear, we either address mental health and poverty, or we continue to deal with shootings like Sandy hook and Aurora Colorado.
The war on guns is pretty much over, except the crying that is.
This flood of illegal immigrants will be the final nail in the coffin for obama. Even the most rabid obama supports are starting the see his true agenda. Obama will go down as the worst president in history. Instead of bringing the nation together, he drove a steel wedge through the heart of America.
Everyday working people are being thrown to the wolves while illegals are flooding this nation and overwhelming resources.
You think the economy is bad now? Just wait until those illegals are granted work visas. Those thousands of illegals crossing the border everyday will start looking for work. It is just a matter of time before human rights groups call on the U.S. government to start granting work visas. We do not expect the tens of thousands of illegals to sign up on welfare do we? If they are here they can work and support themselves, right?
When Xerxes demanded the Spartans surrender their weapons, King Leonidas said Molon labe (translated: come and take them).
In the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting Connecticut gun hating liberal legislators passed a restrictive law demanding certain types of weapons be registered.
Numbers show the law has been pretty much ignored. Now the ball is in the court of the Connecticut lawmakers.
Faced with widespread rebellion the people and the state have one of two choices:
Turn law abiding citizens how have decided to ignore an unjust law into criminals
Repeal the law
Law enforcement refuse to enforce an unjust law. “Just following orders” is no excuse to blindly enforce bad laws.
Always remember the Nazis who sent millions of Jews to the gas chambers were just following orders. When those soldiers were put on trial at Nuremberg, they were found guilty of war crimes. “Just following orders” is no excuse to commit crimes against the people.
The government spoke, the people chose the ignore. The next step is left up to the government.
Socialist need to listen up. Free people did not roll over and play dead in 1776, nor shall we do so now.
On December 13, 2013 Karl Pierson walked into Arapaho high school, shot one student and then killed himself.
Usually this would have been major news for weeks, with anti-gun advocates coming out of the woodwork like roaches. There should have been renewed calls for gun control with president Obama addressing the nation for the need for tighter restrictions and background checks.
So what makes this school shooting different?
The shooter used a shotgun.
The shooter legally bought the firearm.
Shooter was left leaning communist democrat
A good guy with a gun put a quick end to the violence.
While the article is “kind of” insightful, I think it misses the mark. Rather than focusing on core Republican values, the article goes off into left field talking about sex.
Sex is a small part of the issue. The larger issue at hand is this thing called “responsibility.”
The article states,
Parents of daughters, it seems, have an interest in reducing male promiscuity.
Personally, I think male promiscuity has little to do with the issue. The larger issue here is taking responsibility for your actions.
Between promiscuity and taking responsibility for your actions, I feel taking responsibility reflects a larger percentage of the Republican party. Family values, taking responsibility for the children you bring into the world, holding a job,,,, are all part of the Republican party stands for.
After receiving some complaints about the amount of political commentary on this site, I have decided to do two things:
1 – Reduce the amount of political commentary posted here.
2 – Open a new website where I can rant all I want about political stuff.
The new site is called PBJ News, as in Peanut Butter and Jelly news. Why PB&J? Because it is quick, simple, and something that fills the soul. It is a name just about everyone can relate to and it is easy to remember.
With all of the gun hating, conservative hating, family values hating sites on the net, I figured we needed a site that pushed conservative values. I have this vision of PBJ news being not only a conservative news site, but also a conservative opinion site.
I am so tired of gun hating liberal sites spewing their hatred, I figured it was time to open my own site to spread core conservative values.
This is just my personal opinion on things, I think the United States is going to hell in a handbag. The government has turned against the common working people, while liberals push for social equality for those who do not deserve quality, meaning illegal immigrants.
While companies like apple turn record profits, a record number of people are on welfare. The major news would rather report on celebrities, rather report on the pressing issues.
We need sites that push for holding people responsible for their crimes, rather than liberal sites who would rather blame society.
Join me in my new endeavor, head on over to PBJ News and add the site to your bookmarks.
Maryland is working on passing a new series of gun control laws. Some of which will endanger national security by restricting the types of magazines Beretta can import to its factories.
Beretta makes the M9 service pistol for the military and various law enforcement agencies.
Maryland is restricting the types of magazines Beretta can import into the state.
Maryland is restricting the types of magazines Beretta can keep in their warehouses.
Beretta being able to produce weapons and magazines for the military and law enforcement is a matter of national security.
Do the liberals not realize that Maryland will be losing jobs, and will also be jeopardizing national security if new gun laws are passed?
Who needs a job when the government provides food stamps, phones, housing and medical care?
Not only is Maryland sacrificing national on the alter of false security, but they will also be driving up unemployment and driving up taxes for those of you who still have a job.
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.
The cartoon shows an older couple compared to a younger couple. With the younger couple wearing an obama pin.
A few days ago there was a news program talking about how the younger generations are growing more liberal, while the older conservatives are fading away. For example, for the first time in history, less then 50% of the voters say they are Protestant Christians.
Not only is the nation divided by political parties, we are also divided by liberalism and conservatism, and we are divided by religion, or rather the lack of religion.
Where is this trend of a growing liberal population going to take the United States? It is going to financially bankrupt the US.
Differences between conservatives and liberals
The heart of conservationism is the belief that people should take responsibility for their actions. Isn’t that the way its always been? Steal a horse and you get hung, its pretty simple. Do not work, and you shall not eat, sounds good to me.
What if I told you there was a group out there that was undermining our national security? A group that was working together to weaken the nation and to drive us into debt. Well, its really two groups that work together. One group is the giver, the other group is the receiver.
After I tell you about these two groups, what would you be willing to do about it? Would you be willing to change the way you vote?
The two groups that are working together are the liberals, and the people on welfare.
Lets start at the root of the problem, and those people are the liberals. These are the democrats, the people who think social programs such as welfare, government oversight, food stamps, public housing,,, are good ideas.
Lets not forget that bill clinton signed free trade agreements into law.
So not only do liberal democrats think putting people on the public dole is a good idea, but sending our jobs overseas is a good idea also.
Who pays for all of the social programs such as welfare and food stamps?
Its not the poor paying, they dont have any money.
Its not the rich paying, because they can buy influence with the law makers.
As usual, after the Aurora Colorado shooting the anti-gun lefties are whipping into a feeding frenzy. The crazies are asking how people can order so much ammunition over the internet, or how someone can collect an arsenal of guns without the federal government asking. It is really sickening to see all of the anti-gun propaganda out there.
Lets have a discussion on gun control, but this time from a financial VS national security point of view.
I figure any liberals or socialist reading this will not care what I have to say, but here goes anyway.
In 2006 shooters and hunters spent $3.7 billion.
Now lets say that the government goes crazy and bans all kinds of rifles, shotguns and pistols. the restrictions are so tight that people just stop buying guns. We all know that the end point of gun control is the complete abolishment of all privately owned firearms. Liberals probably masturbate to some kind of end-game law on firearms.
Random youtube video.
For grins and giggles, lets say firearms are only sold to police and military
Where is the money going to come from to support the shooting and firearms industry? Well, liberlas probably do not care about the jobs, or the skills craftsmen that assemble firearms.
The firearm industry goes bankrupt, all but just a couple of companies collapse. Machines are dismantled, people are laid off and learn another trade, factories are demolished and sold off for scrap iron.
Lets fastforward a couple of years. Tensions between the U.S. and china (or Russia) finally reach a boiling point. A couple of chinese (or russian) subs parked off the east coast launch a few missiles, which effectively destroy the final remaining firearm factories.
Ok, you stupid liberals, what now?
We have no factories that can produce parts for the M4/M16, we have to skilled craftsman to operate the machines, we have nothing but barren fields where gun factories once stood. What the hell are we supposed to do for guns or gun parts?
The Gun Industry is Essential to National Security
Why does the federal government keep bailing out the auto-industry? Because we need trucks, tanks, motors, wheel bearings, transmissions,,, to fight a war.
If gun control is established, the federal government will have to bail out the gun industry in the name of national security.
The machines that make the AR15 lower receiver, there are only about a dozen of them in the whole U.S. Shutting down just 2 plants would affect around 40% of our manufacturing ability. Liberals are probably thinking, “half a dozen, should be easy to take those machines off line”.
Instead of the firearms industry needing a bailout, hunters, target shooters, recreational shooters,,, support the industry.
That $3.7 billion that hunters and shooters spent in 2007 in part helps support national security.
Mass Shootings and Gun Crime
Here is a novel idea, lets make the people who commit gun crimes responsible for their actions? Just like society would with drinking and driving, rape, or any other crime.
How many people are killing in drinking and driving accidents? But nobody is talking about banning alcohol or vehicles. Well, society did ban alcohol for a little while and we know how well that worked out.
Here is another novel idea, make the local prosecuting attorney and judge responsible for repeat offenders that get reduced prison terms. Someone is convicted of a gun crime, spends a couple of months in prison, gets out and commits another crime, the judge and prosecuting attorney should be held responsible. They knew the person had a history of violence, but let the person get off with a reduced sentence.
If someone commits a crime with a firearm, they are a menace to society and should be held accountable for their actions.
Blaming an inanimate object for a crime is a ludicrous idea. The people who call for gun control have no concept of the long term impact of what they ask for.
I am sorry that a crazy person slipped their the safety net, but how do you stop someone that wants to kill? If someone wants to kill people, the only way to stop them is to lock the person up.
Timothy McVeigh killed 168 people and wounded 680, and not a single firearm was used.
September 11 attacks on the twin towers killed 2,996 people, and not a single firearm was used.
What happened to the United States? Instead of being the land of the free, with liberty and justice for all, we are the land of cash cows with liberty and freedom for the rich. If you dare speak an opposing opinion, you are branded and outcast. If you speak out against the U.S. government, and travel to another country, the president sends a drone to kill you and whoever is with you.
Banks and wall street immune the law
One thing that really irritates me is hoe big banks and wall street can run over the people, and nothing is ever done.
Leading up to the 2008 housing crash, banks made loans to people who were not qualified to receive loans. The loans were then sold to investors. Wouldn’t that be considered fraud if anyone besides a bank did it?
Bank gets in trouble, the government rushes to shore it up.
People get in trouble, that is just too bad.
Since when did the government start bowing down to special interest groups, such as the banks and wall street?
Chick-fil-A and the right to speak out
This Chick-fil-A issue and gay rights is getting really out of hand. If someone says they support gay rights, then someone else should have the right to say they do not support gay rights.
If some faggot wants to get his poo packed every night, I could not care less. I am kinda neutral on the issue. As long as the sex is between consenting adults, I do not care what happens in a bedroom. Just because I do not care does not mean I have to support the idea either.
Boycotting a company because they do not support gay rights is like the pot calling the kettle black. There are going to be issues all through life we agree with, neutral on, or disagree with. So what if a company does not support gays rights? So what? It is their right to voice their opinion.
While I am not agree with Chick-fil-As stance, I do however disagree with the flack Chick-fil-A has been treated. Why cant people speak up and voice their opinion? So what if Chick-fil-As opinion differs from people who support gay rights? Whats next, try to bully Chick-fil-A into changing their opinion?
The shootings in Aurora Colorado has brought the liberals out in force. As the liberal crap storm for more gun control whips into a feeding frenzy, I see a common pattern, and that is the spread of incorrect information.
One opinion said the AR was designed for killing at close range. In the military trials, bullet performance was judged at 200 meters. How is 200 meters close range?
Another opinion piece said high capacity magazines have no place in hunting. I don’t guess the author has ever seen the videos of people hunting wild hogs from helicopters. I don’t guess the author saw pictures of the LA riots where store owners were protecting their property with semi-auto rifles and high capacity magazines.
Here are the facts people:
Gun control does not stop gun violence. Criminals do not care about laws. If criminals cared about laws, there would be no criminals. So how does gun control stop criminals?
Liberals argue that the background check stops criminals from buying guys. If a criminal wants a gun, he will go steal one.
Liberals argue only the police and military should have firearms. And what, turn the U.S. into a police state? Our forefathers wanted to ensure the people have the ability and the right to rise up against the government. If the U.S. government becomes oppressive to the people, the people have the ability to fight back. When a protestor shows up with an AK47, I bet the police will be a a lot less likely to take measures against the crowd.
Liberals argue high capacity magazines have no place in hunting. They are probably right. However, the 2nd Amendment is not about hunting, its about protecting the people from an oppressive government.
