Dan Malloy, Governor of Connecticut, Violates Civil Rights!

In a recent news conference in Connecticut, Governor Dan Malloy remarked to people objecting to his draconian gun control bill rammed through in 2013 by saying “your side lost”. You can see the actual video below. the comment occurs around the 4:46 mark.

Dan Malloy is a tyrant and not fit to be a dog catcher much less a Governor or god forbid the President. He clearly has no respect for the civil rights of law abiding Americans. In fact, this law of his has turned tens of thousands of law abiding citizens into felons with a stroke of a pen! Before the law they were perfectly legal to own and NOT register their legally owned property after the law they are felons if they don’t comply.

His comment of “your side lost” clearly shows his contempt for human rights and civil liberties as well as his absolute ignorance of the Constitution.

A RIGHT IS NOT SUBJECT TO A VOTE!

A right is something we are born with and is not granted by government nor is it subject to a vote where majority rules and therefore can be stripped away. The ONLY function of government is to PROTECT rights! Not grant them. Not vote them away.

The fact that Malloy claims that the law is perfectly Constitutional because one of the courts packed with equally Constitutionally ignorant judges with no knowledge of history doesn’t somehow make this OK.

Liberals and socialists like Malloy have a long history of denying people their civil rights simply because they don’t like them or more likely because those rights interfere with their socialist plans for society. At the same time they fail to protect enumerated rights actually written down in the Constitution. On the flip side they seem to be able to invent or create new rights like Healthcare, housing and welfare rights out of thin air.

His actions have now endangered the lives of citizens and police officers as he has set up a veritable powder keg in Connecticut when he tries to enforce his unconstitutional laws. People are going to end up getting killed when police are ordered to start kicking in doors to enforce this heinous law. The blood of those people will sit squarely on the shoulders of Malloy. Hey, Malloy, I wonder how well this will work for your Presidential aspirations!

Tyrants always believe that as long as they somehow lend an air of legitimacy to their actions, like a vote, that it somehow makes their actions OK, but let’s see if that is true when people across the nation start seeing police officers being killed trying to enforce this law and families that lose fathers, mothers, sons and daughters to the same police and blood truly is running in the streets.

Well, Malloy when you decide to order your storm troopers to start kicking in doors and dragging people off to prison for exercising one of their enumerated civil liberties a quote comes to mind… “things are about to get interesting”.

MOLON LABE!

Blood Dancing Denied

Whenever early news reports start surfacing anywhere in the country about a “mass” shooting no matter how little is known of the actual facts the gun banning politicians and their advocates get a little gleam in their eye.  They start pulling on their blood dancing shoes and getting ready to fire up the media about another right-wing, tea party, white guy who is a mass killer.  While normal people, including most gun owners, look on horrified about a maniac like this and wait to get all the facts and offer condolences to the families.

Unfortunately the gun banning losers out there simply can’t help themselves this is simply how it is done in their perverted world.  You dance in the blood of the victims and start crooning for more gun control before the police even arrive on scene.  You start digging for any, however irrelevant, facts you can find that would support how right wing or white the shooter is.  When their hoped for shooter doesn’t materialize as he never does then the media and gun banners lose ALL interest in covering the story; unless the body count is high enough, then their is some redeemable value in their sad, little, pathetic eyes they can exploit.

God help the victims if the shooter turns out to be a minority or a left wing nut because then the media will NEVER cover the story.  It will be buried so fast people will still have sand in their eyes before the police even arrive on the scene.

Jack Cashill of WND media shows how this model was played out very recently with the Maryland Mall shooter in a column I found this morning.  Excellent piece, please take a moment to read it.

Tim Phillips of Global Post is Wrong about Gun Control

Tim Phillips of Global Post just posted an article advocating a solution to the gun control debate that has been going on for over a year now.  In reality this debate has been going on for the last 45+ years, since 1968 and some would argue back as far as 1934.  While I give him credit for his approach I believe he is missing the point on the issue.

The issue has never been about guns as much as it is about politics and control.  Take the proposed law from last spring to extend background checks to all private sales at gun shows that failed to pass.  As has been pointed out before this bill if it had been in effect for the past 10 years would have done NOTHING to stop almost all the mass shootings and certainly all the most recent ones going back 3-4 years.  Why?  Because in everyone one of those situations the shooters either passed the background checks or stole the guns.  In either cases the law would have done nothing to prevent them.  Yet, they pushed it just the same.  Why… because of politics and control.

Now, take the proposal by the NRA of adding people into schools who are armed and can provide a response to a mass shooter.  This could come in the form of an armed resource officer or an armed citizen who volunteers.  When the NRA suggested this they were ridiculed and dismissed immediately out of hand by every gun grabbing politician and “main stream” news organization.  Yet, this isn’t just some off the wall suggestion, this actual policy has been in place in Israel since 1976 and they haven’t had a SINGLE school shooting since then!

Why was the NRA policy so quickly dismissed?  Because the politicians and gun grabbers are more interested in politics and control than actually solving the problem.  The vast majority of the politicians that advocate for these bans have no interest in solving the actual issue.  They don’t even write or read the bill, rather they let some anti-gun lobbyist write the bill and then go push it like a good little dog.  They don’t understand what they are evening proposing.  This has been proven over and over again, most recently with the Colorado legislator that didn’t understand the difference between a clip and a magazine, but was willing to offer a law to ban them.  Again, why was she doing this?  Politics and Control.

Mr. Phillips discussed “negotiation” and understanding each other’s core values as a way of resolving this. That is completely naive to say the least.  The gun grabbing politicians are NOT interested in understanding our culture and never have been.  They are not interested in actual solutions that will work, just ramming yet, another law down our throats that will do nothing, but will move us closer to their true goal of total citizen disarmament.  To deny this as their true goal is either duplicitous or naive, take your pick.

What about the negotiation part, well the gun grabbers aren’t interested in that either.  In a true negotiation neither side gets what they really want, but both get something and while it may not be exactly what they were hoping for it will work.  The politicians who propose gun grabs are interested in only a one way street.  We give, they take, nothing more.  The negotiation becomes a “how much can we get away with this time with this law”.  If this was not true then how come the “negotiation” is never about us getting BACK some of our rights that have been taken away in previous laws that were proven to not work and now just hurt law abiding gun owners?  No, it is always how much more can we take this time.  It is never a true negotiation of give and take.  Why?  Again, politics and control.

Speaking as a gun owner I will say I don’t trust any politician who wants to just “discuss” how we can prevent tragedies in the future because for them that isn’t the true goal and we saw that first hand after Newtown, CT.  Many of them were so sure this was their big moment that they fully revealed their true colors.  Confiscation was used for the first time and many admitted it.  They shed their cloaks of “we believe in the 2nd Amendment” they always hide behind and let their true colors show.  Total ban on all civilian owned firearms and confiscation for those that have them now.

The problem gun owners have is we have been burned every time we “negotiate” with these people because they are interested in only one thing…disarmament.  We are always told if we just agree to this one “common sense” bill they will not be back, but that is a lie, they always come back.  There simply is no trust left and never will be.  While I don’t think Mr. Phillips is a bad guy, yet, he is naive and his article show it.

The most horrible atrocities in the 20th and eventually the 21st Century were caused by unchecked dictators who started their reign of terror with gun control first.  Disarm their victims and then murder them because they certainly can’t fight back now.  No thanks, Mr. Phillips.  I am not going in the box car willingly.  As gun owners we are not giving one more inch!

Molon Labe!

Layaway for Guns

Does anyone remember a long time ago when stores offered layaway programs for customers?  For those that don’t what it allowed you to do is put products you shopped for on hold and allowed you to pay a little each month until the products were yours.

OK, let me ask an easier question, do you remember way back to 10 months ago when Obama and his merry band of fellow gun banners, Shumer, Fienstein and others were pushing REALLY hard to fulfill a very long wish list of gun and magazine bans as they danced in the blood of the Newtown victims?  Of course you do because your ability to purchase ANY gun related products was about nil.

Here we are with shelves FINALLY starting to fill up again and a choice that shooters are again faced with.  My recommendation is that every single month people buy something to expand their shooting lockers.  Not necessarily a new firearm every month, but certainly things like magazines, ammo (yes I am aware it is still in short supply in many places), firearms, accessories, etc.  I am not recommending you break the bank every month.

Like the layaway programs of old days, just buy a little every month, but be consistent buy something every single month.  Consider it a savings plan against the next gun banner bazaar that we are only one mass shooting away from.

You see our enemies in the gun ban crowd will ALWAYS exploit every tragedy they can find and dance in the blood of victims, often times before any facts are even known to call for new gun bans.

Unfortunately every time this happens it is like a lottery with your rights.  First, is the Congressional make up, President, and Supreme Court lined up in the gun banners favor?  Remember the first 2 years of Obama’s first term they had a veto proof majority in both chambers of Congress and all it would have taken during that first 2 years is for Newtown to be 3 years earlier and the loss of rights would have been devastating and permanent.

The point is that you can never tell when the stars will align perfectly for the gun banners to ram home some or all of their wish list leading to total civilian disarmament.  Make no mistake this is their goal regardless of what they *say* in front of the cameras while the duplicitous rats plot behind the scenes.

These liberty robbing scum are also relentless.  They will NEVER stop working, plotting and scheming to remove your rights.  NEVER, EVER, believe you are safe from their plots and agendas, you aren’t.  Even when you aren’t hearing from them doesn’t mean they aren’t carefully working behind the scenes and assembling the next freedom robbing law and waiting for the next tragedy to exploit to ram it home.

When that day comes, and it will come, you won’t be able to buy the stuff you need at any price from any vendor.  If you doubt this simply look at the last year.  Back in February and March of 2013 you couldn’t find an AR-15 anywhere and almost no standard capacity magazines or ammo.  It was like a desert for shooters.  It is still not back to normal in many parts of the country and this is because the gun banners failed… this time.  Imagine the price and availability of this stuff if they had been successful.

Some of you will throw a bucket of cold water on this suggestion and say you have seen this before and that the gun banners will never succeed, blah, blah, blah.  Well, when you are wrong and I am proven right I will be happy to sell you some of my excess supply for 8 times the market price.  I will recoup all of the money I spent preparing little by little and you still won’t have what you need, but will be much poorer.  I have seen it before I will see it again.  I hate to be so blatant to my fellow gun lovers, but you can’t say you weren’t warned.

Since most people are not independently wealthy you should plan on using the layaway program.  Buy something, even if it is small every single month.  Don’t fail to do this.  When you can add another firearm to your collection, do it.  The day may come when you can’t at any price.  When the next mass shooting comes you will be much better prepared.

Colorado Tells Bloomberg to Butt Out of State on Gun Issue

According to this article, Colorado Governor Democrat John Hickenlooper he is telling Michael Bloomberg to stay out of Colorado politics on the gun control issue. Strange, he seemed all for Bloomberg’s help before citizens tossed out 2 of his Democrat Senators in a special election. Now another of his Senators is facing a fresh recall effort. If this trend keeps up the Democrats will lose control of the Colorado Senate.

This is actually a hilarious comedy playing out. First, Hickenlooper makes it sound like Nanny Bloomberg came into Colorado and did all of this by himself. Did he develop amnesia about the fact HE SIGNED THE GUN CONTROL BILLS INTO LAW!!! It was at his behest that the state legislature even took up the issue.

With prompting from Obama and money from Nanny Bloomberg new gun control was shoved down the throats of Colorado citizens. Obama believed as did Nanny Bloomberg that if they could prove a pro-gun western state with a long and rich firearms tradition could pass gun control without any backlash that it could be done anywhere. They hoped to prove the NRA was irrelevant in today’s political climate.

How did that work out for you?

This guy wants to blame Bloomberg for this whole issue going south on him, but he seems to forget he had the final say. He could have vetoed the bill, but he didn’t. He could push to undo it right now, which might calm the anger of his constituents, but he seems to have no interest in that either. Basically he wants the bleeding to stop and figures if he tells Nanny Bloomberg to buzz off that this will will cause the citizens to calm down. I doubt that very much.

Too little too late pal. You pissed on the wrong group this time. You took freedoms away from a group who is absolutely relentless in making you pay a political price and a group that has a looooong memory.

A wise man once said these enlightening words when he found himself in a similar predicament…

Oops!

Obama’s Obsession with Gun Control

Obama recently had yet another divisive, highly partisan pander speech to gun control nuts.  Using the recent Navy Yard shootings as his most recent excuse to revisit the issue he again called for draconian (not common sense) gun control laws.  He again reiterated his desire for a ban on this mythical “assault” weapon and standard capacity magazines as well as background checks at gun shows.  Same old tired rhetoric.

The problem is the wacko who committed the shootings at the Navy Yard wouldn’t have been stopped by ANY of these proposals had ALL of them been in place for the last 10 years!  That is the issue that gun owners keep yelling about.  Quit proposing laws that will have NO impact on these incidents, but will make criminals out of otherwise law abiding people.  Just ask this guy in NJ how well all of these stupid gun control laws work that only punish harmless and law abiding people who are suddenly turned into felons that would have done almost a decade in prison for a simple violation of a stupid law that does NOTHING to stop these kinds of killings!

This guy’s sentence was commuted (not pardoned) which still makes him a convicted felon, but at least he is not serving the time in prison.  Still I think most people would agree being a convicted felon carries plenty of issues and it is so senseless.  We talk about senseless shootings but not senseless unintended consequences of all these stupid laws.

The Navy Yard shooter did NOT use the mythical and hated “assault” rifle nor did he use “high capacity” magazines.  I know this greatly saddens Obama’s cheerleaders in the media who think everything from a baseball bat to a shotgun is an AR-15, but the facts are what they are.  He used Joe Biden’s weapon of choice, a Remington 870 pump shotgun.  It has a whooping capacity of 5 rounds plus one in the chamber.  Hell, this gun doesn’t even meet the limit for bullets that New York’s stupid “Safe” ACT limits people to!  It is probably the most popular hunting gun in America and used by many deer hunters who can’t use rifles in their respective states.

I believe the reason Obama is so keyed up about this issue is because it is the first major loss he has had since he has been President.  He invested A LOT of political capital in his over the top gun ban party back at the beginning of the year and it blew up in his face when his OWN party kept it from passing.  Of course there had to be a bad guy so in this case it was the evil NRA, as if they are some independent evil entity rather than what they really are, which is a membership organization of 5 million plus members who believe in the civil right of the 2nd Amendment.

Because he was defeated he is acting like any petulant child that doesn’t get his way and throwing a temper tantrum because he was told no.  He has always been a pathetic and weak President prone to crying when he doesn’t get his way and blaming everyone but himself for every failure of which there have been many.  He won’t let this rest ever because he was denied what he wants and his incredible ego makes him think he should get whatever he wants just because he deserves it.

He went on in the speech to say we should be “obsessed” with passing new gun control laws.  The only person in this debate that is obsessed with this issue is you, Obama.

As a gun owner I will not EVER yield to even your most innocuous requests to further restrict my rights and freedoms.  This far and no farther and if I can find a way to roll back some of the infringements people like you have already imposed I will.

Obama to Sign U.N. Arms Trade Treaty

John Kerry will be signing the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty cooked up by the U.N. as a vehicle to ultimately regulate ALL firearms in every country who is a party to the treaty, i.e. the U.S. since most of the other countries surrendered their gun rights decades ago.

While this would still require a 2/3 majority in the Senate to ratify this treaty the bad thing about it is that the treaty never dies.  It lives on forever so if a future gun banning thug like Obama can put together another 60 filibuster proof Senate combined with a few weak willed Republicans like Uncle Dick Luger or any of the other gun banners in the Republican party it is very possible this would be ratified.  It doesn’t matter if that day comes tomorrow or 100 years from now.  This is like hanging an axe over your proverbial gun rights neck and leaving it there forever!

What baffles people who actually possess the ability to reason is how someone like Obama who has handed guns to terrorists and drug cartels would sign a treaty banning you from giving guns to terrorists and drug cartels!  It is supposed to stop international arms sales and gun running, but the biggest damn gun runner is OBAMA!  I know, I know, don’t try to use logic with this morons because it will only drive you crazy; kind of like an infinite math loop or something.

 

California on Verge of Banning Lead Ammo for Hunting

According to Katie LaPotin and Red Alert Politics, California is on the threshold of banning all lead ammunition for hunting.  The premise for this newest of stupid laws in California is…

  1. Lead is killing California Condors who are supposedly eating game that was killed by lead bullets and hence dying as a result of lead poisoning.

  2. That lead is getting into the meat supply and people who eat game are exposing themselves to lead.

Let’s address each of these separately.

Lead Killing California Condors

This issue has been based on a questionable use of facts and logic for quite some time.  There are documented cases of environmentalists wackos feeding Condors poisoned food with lead to try and build a case against lead bullets. For example, there have been documented cases of environmentalists wackos putting lead into dead carrion that died in other ways and then getting photos and video “proof” when a Condor comes along and eats it. 

There are also photos of Condors eating lead filled paint chips.  The point being there are other ways that Condors can be exposed to lead besides eating discarded game meat that supposedly was killed by lead ammunition.

Second issue here is the amount of lead we are talking about here.  Lead bullets are extraordinarily small, many have copper jackets on them so exactly how much lead could possibly come off of one little bullet?  Once an animal is shot with a bullet it tends to die.

Now I know it has been a few years since I completed high school anatomy class, but I am pretty sure death stops blood flow.  Assuming my high school teacher didn’t lead me astray on that point how in the world is all this lead circulating through a dead animal and polluting the entire carcass for the Condor to eat?  I suppose if the Condor comes along and ONLY eats the part of the carcass where the bullet is at then maybe, just maybe, there is a small chance but you hopefully see the incredibly small statistical chances we are talking about at this point.

Next, most responsible hunters, which is the majority, do everything possible to recover their game.  They don’t just shoot animals and leave them to rot.  Therefore exactly how much game meat can actually be out there that has any lead even in it?

Given the amount of lead that can come from pollution and other sources IF this is even an issue at all and that is a very big IF it is probably coming from water or other sources the birds are getting access to.

To summarize this point, we need vast quantities of animals that are shot by lead ammunition to be left to rot out in the woods.  We need the animal shot to have this liquid type lead bullet to continually pump through the system of a dead animal to thoroughly infect the ENTIRE carcass to levels high enough to actually kill a Condor.  Seems highly implausible.

Lead Getting into Meat Supply

What meat supply are we talking about here?  Have cows and chickens and pigs killed at slaughter houses started being killed with lead ammunition?  Nope.  We are talking about strictly wild game.  Second, whose wild game are we talking about?  That would be the hunter who killed it.  So exactly why is it the state of California’s business what I as a hunter eat or how much of it?  If I as a hunter choose to do this it is NONE OF THE STATE’S BUSINESS!  This nanny state crap has to really stop.

Second, the actual issue is a moot point anyway.  There has been studies of people who consume wild game on a regular basis all of which is probably killed with lead ammunition and they have NEVER been able to show a higher level of lead in the blood for this group of people beyond the standard population.

Further, those individuals who hunt and collect wild game cannot sell it due to multiple state and federal laws barring such actions, which of course prompts the question of exactly who owns the game if someone can’t sell it, but that is an argument for another day.  The point being is there is really no way for wild game to be introduced in the larger world of food outside of the actual hunter and their friends/family that may eat it.  So again the simple question, what business of it is the state what I eat and when?

Besides, let’s face it, most hunters tend to be gun owners and conservatives.  While certainly not all of them, probably the majority are.  Since these are 2 of many arch enemies of gun and hunting hating liberals wouldn’t you want this group to be poisoned and die?  Why are you working so hard to save them? You don’t give a crap about them or their opinions any other time, why now?

In fact liberals and gun haters usually work overtime to ignore the opinions of this group of people and shove unwanted laws down their throats every chance they get.

Now we come to the actual crux of the issue.  Lead ammunition is MUCH cheaper to acquire and hunt with.  If people in California are FORCED to buy only copper ammo then the cost of hunting with rise and may put the sport outside the reach of poorer people.  THAT is the first step towards the actual end result.  Lower the number of hunters and shooters by jacking up the price of ammo in California.

Of course even banning it from hunting is not the full goal.  You see if they are successful they will wait a little while and then start step 2 which is to say that too many people are ignoring the new law (because of cost) and therefore California needs to ban ALL lead ammo so it can’t be used by hunters and shooters.  Now the cost goes up for ALL shooting and again forces the number of shooters down as people can’t afford the already high cost of ammo and now that it must all be made of copper the price will sky rocket.

Once California falls then these same anti-gun and anti-hunting crowd will start hollering about how Condors were saved in California by this “common sense” approach and that it needs to be enacted at the Federal level so all birds, eagles, hawks, robins, etc. can all be saved. Mind you there is no problem with any of these birds today, but when these goons, their buddies in the media and their junk science are finished it will be a crisis of crisis.  Of course once that is done then we are back to step 2 noted above, but this time at the Federal level against ALL shooters EVERYWHERE.

These scum never think just one step ahead, but many.  Their “goal” that they discuss today is never the final goal, but always a stepping stone to something far more restrictive and sinister.  It has always been this way and it always will.  This is a fight for the ages, control freaks, nanny state lovers and tyrants against freedom, liberty and individual personal responsibility.

The interesting thing is that if California is dumb enough to actually pass this law either just for hunting or an entire ban it will quickly create a black market for lead based ammo because it is cheaper.  It will be very simple to smuggle ammo over the state line or simply have people leave the state and go to Nevada for instance and buy ammo there and take it back.  So California, go ahead and try your stupid law and let the smuggling begin.

 

Navy Yard Shooting Exposes Weakness in Screening

A headline in today’s Wall Street Journal reads…

“Shooting at Washington Navy Yard Exposes Screening Lapses”

While I don’t disagree with the title of the story I think this mass shooting exposes a few more things that were left out of the article…

“Gun Free” Zones Don’t Work

Here we go again, another massacre and again it takes place in one of these stupid “gun free” zones that liberals and anti-gun nut jobs love so much.  As has been proved over and over again the only thing this stupid law does is stop a law abiding person who wouldn’t have harmed anyone from carrying a licensed and legal firearm for self defense into the building.  Of course as we have also seen over and over again these laws do NOTHING to stop a killer who doesn’t care about the law.

Lack of Background Checks at Gun Shows NOT to Blame

After the anti-gun morons precious bill fell apart in Congress in April many of them were screaming that the blood from the next mass shooting would be on the NRA’s hands because they stopped the background check bill from becoming law.  We heard that if you just had background checks at gun shows for all transactions, both FFL and private dealer that mass shootings would be prevented.  In fact, that moron Diane Fienstein was out this morning claiming as much after this shooting.  However we learn this guy (who had severe mental problems) bought the gun at a sporting goods shop and PASSED a background check with no problems.  In fact, this guy even had a secret security clearance from the Navy itself!

Mental Health Records NOT in Background Checks is the Real Problem

As we have noted before the one element in common among several of the most recent mass shootings was severe mental illness.  Illness that manifested itself several times and seemingly was never reported to anyone and certainly not to anyone with the authority to put it in the Federal firearms background check database.  This guy passed a NICS background check with no problems.  By the way for the slow learners in the class like Diane Fienstein that same background if performed at a gun show would have still passed him as well and he would have walked out the door carrying the same gun.

The Media will Lie and Misreport to Drive an Agenda

Not that this needed repeating, but it bears repeating anyway just to insure the media is exposed for who they really are; a group of freedom robbing thugs with an agenda.  As usual they couldn’t wait to run out and dance in the blood of victims and report what they dearly hoped would be next mass murder that could push their anti-gun agenda over the top.

Finally, we learned that the AR-15 doesn’t come in a shotgun model.  Yes, folks, CNN in an attempt to be the first to rush out and blame the trusty old AR-15 for this killing reported that the killer used an “AR-15 Shotgun”!  How did John Wayne put it again…

“Life is hard.  It is harder if you are stupid!”
