Another day, another school shooting.
Our gun rights are going to disappear forever unless something drastic happens like--
The NRA, with some big money, needs to produce an ad with hundreds of "assault weapons" owners standing in a room -- or on a hillside -- maybe thousands.
And then someone needs to say something like "Every one of us standing here own at least one of these so-called 'assault weapons'; and know what? Of all the 1,394 weapons we own, not one of them has harmed or killed anyone.
"Now tell me -- what will taking these 'assault weapons' away from these people do to combat gun crime in this country?
"Answer? Nothing. There are many things that can be done, but banning any type of weapon is not -- repeat NOT -- the answer."
I say attack in another direction they’re not expecting. Concentrate forces on something that will make Obama look bad. Pit him against Israel or something.
What would be more powerful would be a series of commercials where average people have used firearms to defend themselves and their family.
Imagine a father talking about how he defended his family from a home invasion.
A woman who protected herself from a rapist.
A grandmother who shot a mugger.
Then throw some powerful stats at the end of each.
We also could use some exposure on urban vs rural shootings with the question about how the democrats can justify punishing rural people who clearly have nothing to do with an urban problem.
If that's your idea of how best to preserve them, you don't deserve them.
The GOP held states are standing up to Obama.
Nothing will stop the communists from attacking our country.
Nothing but complete and total devastation of the enemy. Either us or them.
If that's your idea of how best to preserve them, you don't deserve them.
Huh? I'm not getting whatever it is you're trying to say.
Your gun rights will disappear when:
1. You hand your gun over to the enemy and throw yourself on their mercy.
2. You fall over dead beside your gun, slain by the enemy.
Until either of those occur, you have the right, regardless of what some sheet of paper says.
The timing on these latest gun attacks is just unbelievably bad for defenders of the second ammendment and provides more fuel for Obama’s anti-gun agenda just at the time he needs it.
Some GOP counties in Rat states also.

If criminals are made out of those who do not turn their guns in, being a criminal will become a badge of honor.
I do own a Tyranny Response Rifle.
That the sheriffs won't enforce federal laws is a freebie, a throwaway line. They don't and can't enforce ANY federal law. That is outside of their jurisdiction.
I don't have the answer or a solution, but until the public realizes that the government is hostile, the ratchet is only going to work against the public.
Those would be powerful. Great idea.
Maybe they could close the commercial by singing “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing”...and change “Coke” to “Colt”... and don’t forget to add in some unicorns flying across the sky while pooping rainbow skittles, too.
Never mind me...just spitballing here...
I’m waiting for delivery of my new Zombie Hunter. Will be joining my local Zombie Response Team soon after.
Here in Michigan bills to protect gun owners from FOIA requests and one to exclude Michigan made and owned guns from federal regulation were introduced this week.
thanks for the link — I’d missed that thread.
on the “them” side, I don’t see various union thugs, criminals, restive youths, and general obama voters counted ... and those are the unknowns that concern me. comment?
PLUS the idea that, given the right situation, DC can nationalize our various local “national” (why, I wonder, did we allow that name, when they are sposed to be LOCAL?) guards for nefarious purposes.
Ask the simple question: How many hundred million American firearms were not used in a crime this century?
You make a good point. However seeing the LA riots firsthand, and spending an unexpected night on the Bellflower/Carson border during them, I can tell you that "they" are without courage, brains, training, and equipment that "we" possess in spades.
Maybe I'll incorporate the 'stunt' I pulled that kept them out of the apartment complex I was guarding into one of my next articles. They looted and burned the Blockbuster Video, Sports Authority and Carrs right across the street from us.
Not quite true; they can effect a citizen's arrest -- just like any other citizen can.
I have a theory and I believe in the days to come it will become apparent there is truth in it. I think you are going to begin to see staged shootings at universities and schools in the next few weeks to assist the bingo trol agenda. Do I think the Obama administration is capable of this. Absolutely. Do I think they will tell the students to shoot other students? You bet. Why? Because he wants to get the job done and the ends are a way to get to the means. So what if a few children have to die to meet his goals? It’s for the greater good of all humanity! Do I think it would be hard for his administration to find thugs to do the shootings. Not in today’s world.
Funny how the media doesnt focus on the type of wapon anymore. No reports on the gangbangers that got wacked this week either .
it is over for gun control
Sam Colt made us equal
Cody Wilson made guns unbannable

Not in today’s world. I shudder to think of things to come and think it’s very possible he could be either the false prophet or Anti-Christ himself. Ahmenijad is also in the running for that title.
Yes -- that would help!
Obama solidifies his base, makes the Republicans look bad among supporters who otherwise might stray, and makes himself look "decisive" and "determined."
Of course, enough anti-gun publicity now might make a move in the future easier. I don't know if assault weapons are the place to make a counter-move, though.
Sit down and relax. Until three conservatives can show show up at a village council meeting to oppose a sidewalk tax, you conservatives ain’t going nowhere.

I think many patriots are over estimating their strength, while underestimating a military that very likely is purging those they don't trust to follow orders to deploy on American soil. At the same time they have a unit trained to operate on U.S. soil that is probably watched closely.
Our military has had training exercises on American soil that involving foreign troops, including Russian troops in what was a first. Obama would love to humiliate the country he hates by using Russian forces to occupy our soil if given the opportunity.
I assume our government has detailed plans that are already in place for an attack against us. Considering that some federal forces seem to be preparing for a sizable conflict within our borders, while purging numerous high ranking officers in our military, and changing the threat from Islamic terrorist to TEA party members and patriots, you have to wonder.
A unit within the military using rapid force across the states targeting the most likely leaders in the movement could do great damage, if government intel is as good as expected. Taking out those who are seen having an ability to motivate and rally others into battle. Those with in-depth knowledge of insurgencies, and 4th generation warfare. Those who can organize and communicate under the radar comfortably, along with other vital skills that could be passed along. The lose of many of those patriots at the out start could leave many not knowing how to act. A lot of people would go into total defensive mode, and many wouldn't even have to be engaged in that capacity. It's hard to know the mindset of most patriots. Some have a basic survivalist way of thinking, and some think of conducting a war for liberty. Many prepare the same either way, and hope for qualified leadership to emerge. OATHKEEPERS.ORG
There may come a day, hopefully not, when you and others must personally exercise certain Rights in defense of them. Not stay home and hope some lobbying group runs an ad that said this or that, no matter how provocative or influential the ad might be.
No, someday YOU (and I, and others) might have to suit up and hit the ground exercising certain Rights, be they listed under the 1st Amendment, 2nd, etc. and possibly suffer physical, financial, or other losses in the process, much like Civil Rights leaders and activitsts did in the 1960s or the Founding Fathers did in the 1770-80s.
Yep, that is when our Rights will either be preserved in victory or lost in defeat.
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, Give me Liberty, or give me Death!"
I believe that is exactly right.
This is the opening salvo of the democrats 2014 election campaign to retake the House of Representatives.
Republicans are busy looking back, wringing their hands over the last election and trying to exterminate conservatives in their ranks.
Meanwhile, democrats are preparing to drop a nuclear bomb on them in 2014.
