gun (88)

             4063641490?profile=original                  Mother holds young child who escaped murderous rampage of lone gunman,

                                          who killed 20 children and six adults at school

On Friday, December 14th, 20 innocent children walked into their schoolroom class at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and before noon, Adam Lanza, 20, had gunned them and his mother down, according to Fox News sources. Recently, this horrific scene has been played out far too many times in malls, movie theaters, and at universities. This time, the unthinkable has occurred. The innocence of childhood was stripped away by this lone gunman, and left a town, and a nation in mourning.

Yet, in the midst of this very tragic day, the routine calls for tighter gun control laws have again raised its ugly head. While there is no reported connection to alleged shooter, Adam Lanza and illegal firearms, the calls are spreading, as they did earlier in the week, when another masked gunman entered a Portland, Oregon area mall, and shot and killed two victims.

According to Fox News, a U.S. Justice Department source, indicated that weapons used in the murderous assault, including a .223-caliber rifle, had been legally registered to the shooter’s mother. There is a serious problem in this nation, but with this tragedy and the one on Tuesday in Portland, Oregon, it was not the gun, but the stolen weapons that was the problem.

In a nation where there are over 50 million legal gun owners, there is no clear reason how the outbursts of violence by mentally unstable individuals whose weapon of choice is a gun, can be used as a rationale to curtail constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights. The two are not even logically synonymous.

Gun control laws that are not strict enough did not fail these families who are undergoing this very grievous period of mourning for their dead loved ones. What may have failed, even though speculative, is whatever social service system that did not intervene or pay attention to domestic issues that were occurring inside the home of the dead shooter.

The answers to what motivated Adam Lanza, to head into the school where his mother taught and into the very room where she was a teacher and open fire on precious little kids, shows anger that was perhaps motivated by revenge, or some other deep unsettling motive. But a gun control law is not the culprit in this tragic scenario.

How much tighter should the state of Connecticut’s laws be, if the weapons were purportedly registered to the shooter’s mother? The State of Connecticut gun laws specifies in part:
“It is unlawful to possess any other firearm by a person who has been convicted of a felony. It is unlawful to possess a handgun if convicted as a delinquent of a serious juvenile offense which includes.”

The mother did not appear to be a felon, now was she a convicted delinquent. She was a teacher in an elementary school, who was according to published reports from Fox News, murdered by her own son, who stole the weapons from her home. She was a victim not of a right-wing fringe element. She was murdered by her son.

4063631957?profile=original            Bob Costas Attacks 2nd Amendment Gun Rights During NBC football game

                                       to deny gun owners protection

On Sunday night, NBC sportscaster Bob Costas decided during a Halftime break to tell America that your Second Amendment gun rights should be dialed back if not eliminated. He was reacting to the Saturday morning murder-suicide committed by Jovan Belcher, former linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs. According to police officials, Belcher’s chose a gun to murder his 22-year-old girlfriend Kasandra M. Perkins, in an apparent domestic violence dispute.

Did Costas misuse his position as a sports commentator to decide upon his own, without knowing the factual circumstances of the domestic dispute? Was he legitimate in broadcasting a determination before law enforcement authorities had completed their investigation, of Belcher’s use of a gun to commit both her murder and his suicide? Should he have linked the murders to a condemnation of legal gun owners in 43-55 million households in America?

While the nation grieves for the murders which are devastating for both families and the young 3-month old child of the dead parents, Bob Costas decided to become judge, jury and executioner of the Second Amendment guarantees, by issuing a political verbal assault during the halftime show of the game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.

There is a line in the sand that legitimate law abiding gun owners must draw and it must be firmly placed and unmovable. The use of the public airwaves to continue the assault against the U.S. Constitution is not something that should be continuously witnessed nor permitted to go unchallenged.

Why didn’t Costas do his homework before he went on the air with his fictional beliefs? Sure, there has been an increase in firearm ownership. In fact, there are approximately 43-55 million households in America with guns, which is about 43 to 50% of US households. Yet, what Costas neglected to mention is that with the increase of legal gun ownership in America, there has been a steady decline of murders due to gun violence. An armed American is a safer American.

Instead, Costas plays upon the fearful images that are fortified in the conscious of the nation, by media imagrey of horrific assault and murders of innocents like Aurora, Colorado's murder in July. With the attack by shooting suspect James Holmes charged with 24 counts of first-degree murder, liberal gun control advocates targeted the Second Amendment as the convenient villain.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg demanded more detailed gun control measures from both presidential candidates, Obama and Romney. He stated in July, “I can tell you what we do here in New York. The State Legislature passed the toughest gun laws.”

It must be very comforting for families of victims who could not fight back, that with New York State’s stricter gun controls the murder rate has remained close to the current 4.0 and 4.05 per 100,000 as it has for last several years. In New York City, the tough “Stop and Frisk” measures have been attributed by law enforcement as the real solution to the lowering of gun murders in New York City, not tougher gun control laws.

So where does that leave law abiding citizens who continue to be victimized by liberal media pundits, as well as network news and sportscasters who feel compelled to interject personal opinions and nonsensical fabrications and cast them into cement as news?

4063631957?profile=originalAre you ready to wake up in an America where your family is defenseless against enemies foreign or domestic? This reality is right around the corner. A day after his reelection, Barack Obama signaled the United Nations that he is ready to sign an Arms Treaty to strip you of your U.S. Second Amendment Constitutional right to bear arms.

This is not new. The United Nations made earlier attempts during the administration of former President George W. Bush. But, President Bush soundly rejected the measure. Now, President Obama, fresh off of this presidential win, feels emboldened to go forward with his design to unilaterally dismember the guaranteed constitutional protections citizens of this nation are entitled to.

Do you feel comfortable with the idea that the U.S. State Department under the control of either Ambassador Hillary Clinton will truly represent your interest? What about her possible replacement nominee, America’s United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. This is the same Ambassador Rice’s who went on five television network shows to cover up the truth of what happened to four Americans murdered on 9/11 in Benghazi, Libya.

Where does that leave Americans?

The real question is what are you prepared to do in order to defend your right to defend your family? Will you wait to see what happens? Or will you take the necessary steps to make certain that you will not have to wait and see if United Nations gun control officials knock at your door, demanding, and “Gun license and registration, please!”

The right to control your guns is not open for debate or for negotiation. It is a sovereign right that no foreign organization, including the United Nations has the right or the authority to undertake, because a president gives the go ahead.

When any president decides to destroy the nation’s U.S. Constitutional rights afforded its citizens, which he has sworn to uphold, he no longer has the authority to represent the nation’s citizens. He must be impeached!

The U.S. Constitution says with great clarity in Article II, Section 4:
"The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Your signed petitions should be forwarded to John Boehner, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives.

The impeachment process begins in the House of Representatives according to Article I, Section 2: "The House of Representatives . . . shall have the sole Power of Impeachment."

You do not need the permission of the White House nor do you need the permission of the mainstream media to determine your course of action to demand the impeachment of Barack Obama. Develop a list of particulars that petitioners in all fifty states will sign. The secessionist movement has already gotten the ball rolling.

Obama Brings UN’s Gun-Grabbing Resolution to Limelight

http://godfatherpolitics.com/7991/obama-brings-uns-gun-grabbing-resolution-to-limelight/

 

This is very serious.  Please do not take lightly the resolve from the United Nations and our own left to eventually turn us into England where don't have gun rights.

 

We absolutely must stand against this and any other crap they drive down our throats about being "reasonable".

 

Gun control is not about guns--it is about controlling you.  Gun control has never worked, anywhere.  Our safest cities and states are those with the least restrictive gun laws.  These are undisputed facts rather than the lies you will hear from Obama and the media.

 

Go to JPFO.org if you want to begin fact checking.  Link to the FBI Crime Staistics reports, Google what happened in England or Australia.  There are several YouTube videos of Brits and Aussies bemoaning how they were taken in by "reasonable" gun control that morphed into total confiscation. Rest assured that your ideological enemies fully understand their limits as long as America retains it 2nd Amendment rights.

 

The election is over.  I'm not happy with the outcome, but I cannot change it.  I don't care to argue about who you voted for or why.  I am warning you of some of the consequences.  This is not some "chicken little" the sky is falling or a "boy crying wolf".  This is a very real agenda that we can never give an inch.  Once you give an inch, it's like letting the camel get his nose under the tent; you'll soon have the whole camel to deal with.

 

The NRA, JPFO, and a number of other organizations are fighting for our rights.  We have to join them, support them, write/call congress and tell them where we stand.  We must be unrelenting or you, your children, and subsequent generations will never know liberty.

PLEASE TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY.  Do your own research.  Hillsdale College offers a free on-line course on the Constitution--EXCELLENT!  JPFO has a number of FREE educational videos regarding our constitutional rights under the 2nd Amendment as well as what have been the historic reasons and results of gun control.

 

YES, IT REALLY IS THAT SERIOUS!

Democrats=Progressives=Control

 
The issues on the Democratic Party's Platform are very important.  Important, not because the platform actually binds a president to do those things, but because the president, as the leader of his/her party and, as such, supports the majority of his/her party's issues.  Remember the old adage: "Birds of a feather flock together".
 
Secularism, moral relativism, and a large federal government with centralized control, are all basic tenets of the progressive movement.  Knowing their ideals were too radical for most Americans of the early 20th century, they began making in roads in education and politics. The progressives took many years to educate generations of voters and insidiously take over the Democratic party giving them a national stage to promote their ideas and elect their candidates.  Like boiling a frog, they didn't throw him into the hot water all at once; they put him in cool water and gradually raised the heat.  Traditional Democrats were gradually overcome by those new progressives that were educated in their ideas of liberalism, big centralized government, and moral relativism. It's a "feel good" party. 
 
Many folks, myself, my friends and family included, had historically been "traditional Democrats".  (I left when Reagan came along and confirmed what I had already realized: "I didn't leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me").  Unfortunately, the "Progressives" have gradually chipped away all of the traditional Democratic party values and now have replaced them with their "feel good", "reasonable", emotion driven rhetoric which they only intend to use to manipulate their party loyalists into supporting a very radical hidden agenda.  Many "traditional Democrats" find it difficult to break with their tradition of supporting Democratic candidates; their "feel good receivers" have been tuned to that frequency for so long they can't switch channels.
 
God gave us all free will.  We have a right, and a responsibility, to evaluate our positions based on the knowledge of what is right and what is wrong.  There may be some gray areas in life, but most of us know that the really important things in life can only be equated to either right or wrong. 
--We know that killing an unborn baby because it is inconvenient is WRONG; God would NEVER support that position. 
--We know that a person "freely" giving to charity is righteous, but being forced to contribute their earnings so someone else can decide where their gifts will go is wrong.
--We know that we have no right to enjoy the fruits of another's labor.  We must earn our own.
--We know that the whole idea of lying to achieve power over others is a corruption of morality.
 
I hope, and pray, for our country's sake, that people will start to recognize "progressivism" for what it really is: dictatorial, centralized power in the hands of an aloof, elite political class with no moral compass to guide them by a higher authority.
 
The message we have to get across to our friends who are still locked into that emotionalism of relativism, is that it's O.K. to reevaluate your position.  You don't have to lock step support any political party just because your grandfather, father, or you have always done it that way.  Billy Graham once said: "If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything".  To stand for something, you have to consciously think about your position, understand it, and understand why you feel that way.  The progressives don't want you to use your brains; they want to attack you with emotional appeals, ambiguities, and muddied waters.  They are all about rationalization of behavior and values.
 
America has been the only place on earth that was established on the principles that the people own the government; not the government owns the people.  As such, for over 200 years, we've wrestled with many of the tough issues of the time.  Being a government "of the people", and people having human flaws, we've naturally had, and still have, flaws that had to be overcome. The most often referenced is equality of all citizens.  This has been, and continues to be, a long fought struggle.  Abolishing slavery, ensuring equal treatment of all regardless of race, creed, sex, color, national origin, or physical disability  have been issues that have been fought for throughout our history.  But, even with all of our imperfections, we've still been the shining light among nations for individual liberty, freedom of religion, of speech, the right to dissent with the government without fear of being killed.  We are the "go to" nation for all of those oppressed throughout the world who seek a better life for themselves and families.
 
We have a great nation.  We should all be PROUD to be AMERICANS!  We don't have to apologize to anyone for our country being exceptional.  We can only remain an exceptional nation if the citizens respect one another and respect the laws and morality behind those laws which ensure all of us have equal protection.  A tyrant, whether it's a single person or a huge government machine, has no incentive to do anything other than what they want to do.  We don't have an individual tyrant, but our HUGE Federal bureaucracy has become tyrannical and must be controlled.  this coming election can be the beginning to taking control back and limiting government in our lives.
 
God Bless You All!  God Bless America! 
 
There is all the difference in the world between treating people equally and attempting to make them equal.
- F.A. Hayek

 
When injustice becomes law, then Rebellion becomes duty!

Norway

On 22 July 2011, Anders Behring Breivik bombed the government buildings in Oslo, Norway, which resulted in eight deaths and carried out a mass shooting at a camp on the island of Utoya where he killed 69 people, mostly teenagers.

- There is a total ban on automatic weapons in Norway. Modification of semi-automatic guns into fully automatic without the consent of the police is a felony crime.

- You cannot buy any kind of firearms in Norway prior to obtaining an ownership license. 

Finland

On Dec. 31, 2009, a gunman went on a shooting rampage in southern Finland, killing five people at a suburban shopping center before fatally shooting himself.

On November 7, 2007, at Jokela High School in Jokela, a town in the municipality of Tuusula, Finland. 18-year-old student Pekka-Eric Auvinen entered the school armed with a semi-automatic pistol. He killed eight people and wounded one person in the toe before shooting himself in the head. He died later that evening in a Helsinki hospital.

Less than one year after the Jokela school massacre, another school shooting occurred in Kauhajoki, Finland, in 2008 where a gunman shot and killed 10 people before killing himself.

Another incident occurred in 1989 at the Raumanmeri school in Rauma, Finnland, when a 14-year-old fatally shot two fellow students.

- Please note that in Finland firearms can only be obtained with an acquisition license. A separate license is required for each individual firearm. The applicants (for an acquisition license) are also subjected to an extensive background check from police accessible databases and even citations for speeding or drink driving can be grounds of not granting the license.

- Possession of destructive devices such as automatic weapons, Explosive Ordnance, breech loading cannons, artillery or missile systems is generally not permitted.

- Possessing a firearm without a license is a punishable offence in Finland.

England

The Cumbria shootings that occurred on  June 2, 2010 was a killing spree when a lone gunman, Derrick Bird, killed 12 people and injured 11 others before killing himself in Cumbria, England.

- Fully automatic or burst-fire weapons, including air guns, are prohibited for civilian use.

- With a few specialized exceptions, all firearms in the United Kingdom must be licensed on either a 5-year firearm certificate or a shotgun certificate from the police. UK is a “shall issue” country.

 - The penalty for possession of a prohibited firearm without a certificate in the United Kingdom is a maximum of ten years in prison and an unlimited fine.

- Please note that the crime rate has been skyrocketing in the UK since stricter gun control laws were enacted in 1996-1997.

Slovakia, European Union

On Aug. 30, 2010, seven people were killed and 13 were seriously injured in a shooting incident in the Slovak capital Bratislava. The gunman committed suicide after the shooting.

- Fully automatic guns, silencers and (hollow-point bullet for self-defense purposes) are forbidden.

- You cannot buy a gun in Slovakia w/o prior obtaining a valid license.

Germany

On March 2, 2011, a gunman attacked a bus carrying U.S. soldiers at Germany's Frankfurt airport, killing two people and injuring two others.

- Germany has one of the most strict gun control laws prohibiting both self defense and carrying of any firearm, concealed or unconcealed. 

 And now my personal favorite - Switzerland

- Switzerland practices universal conscription, which requires that all able-bodied male citizens keep fully automatic firearms at home in case of a call-up.

- Have you ever heard of any serious shootings in Switzerland for the last 10 years?

- In a word, Switzerland, which is awash in guns, has substantially lower murder and robbery rates than England and Germany where most guns are banned.

 

Let's make a law Sen. Lautenberg, no carrying guns, I'm sure the criminals will obey it...
