Posted on 01/18/2013 5:26:20 PM PST by 2111USMC
It's time to STAND AND FIGHT for freedom!
That's why I'm going on Sean Hannity's show tonight for one full hour.
If you want to hear the facts about gun control's failures, and hear the truth about how NRA is fighting to make our families, homes, schools and communities safer, then I urge you to watch. If you can't watch tonight, record it so you can watch it this weekend.
And if you want to help NRA win the battle to protect the Second Amendment, please tell family, friends and fellow gun owners to watch as well.
The nightmare battle that we've always feared is now at our doorstep, and the outcome of this battle boils down to arming every gun owner with the truth. Please help me do that by forwarding this email to as many gun owners as possible.
Thank you for your friendship and support, and your steadfast loyalty to the cause of freedom.
Rec'd this email announcement today.
8 - 9 PM E.T.
Correct show time is 9 - 10 PM E.T.
30 minutes from now.
woot! go get em wayne!
‘Can’t wait to see this.
Like how the woman showed the difference of the impact of the weapon Obama has on the list to ban vs others which are not. One thing Obama has done, he has made it to where more citizens will want to learn about gun safely for self defense.
In NY, the good guys have 7 bullets..the bad guys have 15.
Typical stupid liberalism.
I hope many many people saw Hanity tonight. The show was very informative and it showed just how stupid the Liberals are concerning guns. To me, it proves what we all believe, they aren’t worried about the safety of the children , or anybody else, they just want our guns.
I rarely watch Fox any more but did this evening, glad I did.
I hope I am not doing harm to what was being shown tonight ... but the caliber exposition was a little light on substance. First let me write that the argument for the 2nd Amendment has nothing to so with the type of weapon being used. It is about defending against tyranny.
Now back to the substance. The little .223 round, more correctly a 5.56 mm round that most AR-15's shoot can be made to fragment. Think small entry wound, but upon entry it shatters and tears everything a part for a good 8 to 12 inches. You can google pictures of actual 5.56 mm wounds. It looks nothing like what was on Hannity.
So why do I bring this up? If liberals were knowledgable about shooting, they could tear the shooting exposition apart. BUT, the size of bullet is not a valid argument for or against the 2nd Amendment.
I should mention, that is completely possible to make a 5.56 mm round that does not fragment. Simply increase the weight of the projectile and slow it down. In fact, there are rounds that are made to penetrate body armor that are made exactly that way. Alternatively, you can use a very light round (less mass) and high speed to penetrate. It is also possible to do the same type of things, fragment or penetrate, with other calibers and weapons.
We should get caught up in types of weapons and size of bullets because it is a losing argument. Guns are made to kill. I have no problem with that. I much rather make the argument about freedom and liberty in countries that do not have the right to bear arms. Or the tens of millions of people that were murdered by tyrants after gun confiscation in they last hundred years.
The liberals have been screaming that the AR-15 can do the most damage if used in a shooting spree. The professional showed how their theory was wrong. She showed how the weapon had added features for a light, how the handle light/easy/adaptable for the person etc as her young nephew. People don’t know this stuff. They need to hear the simple basics/the truth. That is what the show wanted to portray on that part. They did explain very well for what time they had, that how it was our right to defend ourselves against tyranny. I did not see anyone weak who was in support of the 2nd Amendment. I hope they do more series as this as follow ups. It shows America’s gun owners are descent level headed people who want to keep their 2nd A right.
I'd rather have one live cartridge than 15 inert bullets.
Bullets are to cartridges as flour is to bread as cement is to concrete, etc. When will you and others ever learn the difference?
Me too. This is the first time I have put the TV on their network in so long I cannot even remember when I last watched them. I did watch Special Report on line the other day after people here on FR said how the panelists were very negative of the NRA ad. I hope they do more programs as this defending our 2nd A right. The liberals have gone nutty/overboard with the abuse of power on federal, state and local levels.
That's why the lefties are going after rifles, which are much more potent against tyranny, than handguns, which are only good for close combat and doing 95% of the nation's firearm homicides.
Does the 7 round limit impose illegality on all the pistols and rifles currently for sale? Except for the 1911, none of them have 7 rnd mags, nor are they even available.
Can a dealer sell a Glock for example, if its 17 rnd mag is now illegal? Who will buy a pistol w/o available mags?
The politicians just banned an entire class of guns through sneaky politics.
What was presented tonight was for low information voters. I have no problems with that, but it did misrepresent the deadliness of .223/5.56 ammo. I bet you didn't google 5.56 mm pictures of actual wounds. Check this out:
That's a lot different that the three small holes shown on Hannity.
The principles our founding fathers used to write the 2nd Amendment had nothing to do with ammo size and qualities. We lose when we make weak arguments that are not based on principles.
Just to be clear, I do not want any weapon to be banned, and I mean any, whether it is a little pistol, a fully automatic weapon, a tank, or a fighter jet or bomber. The principle is the same as when Gen. Gage when to Concord and Lexington to confiscate and destroy weapons. The only difference today is that weapons are more expensive and more deadly.
That is not what the professional nor the show was trying to relate. I think in what time they had, they were wanting to show how the democrats are lying about certain weapons being banned which do not do as much damage as others can do that are getting banned. And it was not to say, we should ban certain weapons/ caliber. I didn't get that message at all. A .223 or a 7.62 can be purchased as a regular rifle/they are not banning them which will do the same damage.
