    Q-ManRN
    Folks, rewarding illegal immigrants with citizenship has a central theme: creating an overwhelming block of voters that support the Democratic Party in their socialist aims including gun control. Most of these illegal immigrants have been raised in socialist countries where the government is viewed as having god-like powers to provide for and protect every individual as well as single-handedly solve all of society's problems. Naturally, these people think that the government and their agents are the only ones that can be trusted with guns. Thus, they assume that any person with a gun who is not an agent approved by the government is a criminal simply because they possess a gun. All respectable gun owners should oppose illegal immigration and amnesty and support the Gun Owners of America in that regard.

    There are a multitude of news stories these days about the Michael Brown case because a white police officer shot an unarmed black teenager. organizations like the NAACP & the Congressional Black Caucus have called for the police officer to be indicted & convicted for a criminal act. Perhaps rightfully so. That decision rests with a Grand Jury at the moment based upon the evidence not upon the media frenzy. However, I cannot help but notice that the horrific crime mentioned above involving a black man accused of brutally attacking & killing a white woman does not garner such intense national media attention. The same demonstrators in Ferguson will likely not be demonstrating on this victim's behalf. I suspect activists will not block streets or chant with their hands held above their heads in mock surrender for this poor woman. Those activists will probably not be so quick to assume that this incident is a racially-motivated crime. And I cannot help but notice that the NAACP & the Congressional Black Caucus have not rushed to comment about this very violent crime.

    Thank you for bringing the messaging guide to my attention. I have seen that guide. The communists long ago learned that you can easily seduce people into believe lies by using well-established marketing and public relations techniques to frame issues. Unfortunately, conservatives have been very slow to learn this approach. For example, we tend to assume that simply presenting facts will counter the above approach which is often untrue sadly. We have to learn that how we frame issues is just as important as the facts that we present.

    Q-ManRN to rktman; Bob Ireland

    “On average, 86 people are killed by guns each day in America.” No. They are killed by criminals intent on committing violence.

    “Dangerous and/or violent convicted criminals easily exploit this loophole to buy guns from strangers online — anonymously, and with no questions asked.” No. The majority of criminals obtain their guns by illegal means. Most private gun owners either sell guns to people that they personally know or sell them through a licensed dealer even with online sales.

    “In fact, research by Everytown for Gun Safety has found that in some states as many as one in every 10 people seeking to buy a gun from a private seller online are prohibited, meaning they are convicted rapists, domestic abusers and people who have assaulted police officers.” First, this statement assumes that the current background check would stop a criminal from obtaining a gun which is questionable at best. The use of straw buyers & falsified ID’s has already defeated the background system. And that is only a concern if the criminal is even entered in that system in the first place.

    Next, we can safely assume any study done by Everytown for Gun Safety is biased. How would they even be able to track online sales of anything?

    “When I first got involved in this movement to reduce gun violence, I was told that it would take some time to make any changes. Well, time has certainly passed.” Or we could use that time to take personal responsibility by learning to protect ourselves. Of course, it is easier to wait on politicians and blame Republicans.

    “Until they do, what happened to me and my family is only going to happen again... and again, until our leaders make changes.” No. These criminal acts will continue until we learn to focus on stopping criminals instead of guns and people learn to protect themselves rather than waiting for the government to do it for them.

    Naturally, this young woman never mentions that the Clackamas Mall shooter was confronted by a legal gun owner causing the shooter to run away & then commit suicide shortly thereafter. Fortunately, the legal gun owner in this case chose to ignore the policies of the Clackamas Mall which prohibit the carrying of firearms on their premises. I also noticed that the Oregonian neglected to mention the heroic gun owner who was instrumental in stopping this shooter or the fact that this shooting occurred in a gun free zone.

    I strongly suggest that anyone interested in learning the truth about this criminal shooting and other highly publicized shootings visit the Gun Owners of America website at http://gunowners.org.

    What is really sad is that people like the one you mentioned are really afraid to assume personal responsibility for their own safety even when facing a criminal that would rape, brutalize and even murder them. They have been raised to believe that the police are their personal protectors & the police are the only ones who should deal with violent criminals.

    Chuckster wrote “Believe it or not, I know a woman who is adamant that she would rather be raped and beaten to death, even watch her daughter raped and beaten to death, than be defended by an armed citizen.”

    "Unfortunately, the 20-year-old [home invading rapist] was found lifeless in the front seat — apparently dying from gunshot wounds." The "unfortunate" home invading thug was killed trying to rape a young woman. Let me point out that this thug's ultimate fortune was the result of his own criminal actions which including shooting the homeowner defending his family.

    See how the rapist thug that was killed is an "unfortunate" victim. In addition, the other two rapist thugs "thankfully" survived to be lawfully apprehended by the police. This subtly implies disapproval of the grandfather defending his family instead of letting the police handle the criminals.

    The author also says "When the three men attempted to force themselves on his 19-year-old granddaughter, Kenneth snapped and somehow managed to retrieve his own gun and defend his family." The keyword in this statement is the term "snapped". That word implies that the grandfather lost his mind or took leave of his senses. However, he clearly realized that the thugs were not just going to steal some belongings and then leave the family alone. Next, he had to face the reality that the police were not going to be there to stop these thugs from harming him & his loved ones; therefore, he made a sane heroic decision to defend his family from violent criminals rather than depending upon someone else to do that for him.

    Although the author of this article correctly describes the grandfather as heroic, I suspect the author is an anti-gun liberal. It is fortunate that the grandfather had a gun.

    Q-ManRN
    It always amazes me how liberals just make up their own version of reality regardless of facts to the contrary. Consider the following statement from the article quoted "Though Zimmerman's lawyers disputed that the controversial law played a role in his acquittal at trial last year, the case renewed debate about the application of self-defense laws, in Florida and elsewhere."

    George Zimmerman's lawyers as well as numerous legal commentators have pointed out that Stand Your Ground law was not used in the legal defense of Zimmerman. His defense lawyers used a classic self-defense argument that Zimmerman was simply defending himself from grave bodily harm or deadly injury; thus, Stand Your Ground laws were not a part of his legal defense & had nothing to do with his acquittal. Zimmerman's defense team simply corrected the politically-motivated talk about Stand Your Ground laws after Zimmerman was acquitted.

    Nevertheless, liberals go right on talking about Stand Your Ground laws as if they allowed George Zimmerman to murder Trayvon Martin for racial reasons. The fact that Stand Your Ground laws were not used in the legal defense's strategy in the George Zimmerman case makes no difference at all.

    I have always been amazed by the ease with which liberals believe absolute fantasies. Here we see liberals trying to give "real" advice about defending yourself when your home is invaded by criminals. First, they get their expert adviser from the rabidly anti-Second Amendment, anti-self defense NYPD. The adviser is a hostage negotiator who is trained to try to talk his way out of crisis situations. His "expert" advice: keep a can of wasp spray handy. After all, it works against wasps, right? You could also spray yourself with a can of criminal-repellant spray too. And be sure to leave your bedroom doors wide open. It makes it easier for other people to hear. Of course, it also makes it easier for home invaders to get into your bedroom in the middle of the night even though you sleep with a your trusty can of wasp spray. And the ultimate piece of liberal advice when worse comes to worse confronting criminals - just be polite and submit! Criminals are really nice people who just need to be treated with respect; then, the criminal will treat you with respect in return.

    Right! How many women and children have to be kidnapped, raped, and murdered by thugs & sex offenders before the libs figure out that submission empowers criminals? How many decent people have to be beaten & murdered in their own homes before these liberals wake up?

    It comes down to some simple questions: do you want to be at the mercy of criminals in your own home or would you rather that the home invaders were at your mercy? If you are going to defend yourself and your loved ones against a violent criminal, do you want a can of bug spray or a gun? Do you think the NYPD reaches for bug spray or for their guns when they have to defend their lives?

    Q-ManRN to altsehastiin; Buckeye McFrog

    The doctor does have a First Amendment right to ask about guns; however, this issue has more to do with professional standards that govern his speech. As a healthcare professional bound by those standards, he cannot ask you about non-medical issues using his professional status in order to justify his own political beliefs.

    There is no medical reason to discuss how parents choose to defend their families just because there is a small chance a child could be accidentally shot. Responsible parents would be aware of that obvious danger and take steps to avoid that situation, just like they would for many other apparent hazards in their home.

    Q-ManRN
    I am a Registered Nurse and therefore I read the statements above from the perspective of a licensed health professional. Like any adult, I was once a child and like many children I had an excellent pediatrician. My pediatrician never asked me or my family about firearms. This was not because my pediatrician was negligent or uncaring.

    We went to him to discuss our medical concerns and then he could identify safety issues that were relevant to those concerns. There were an immense number of potential safety issues that we never discussed. For example, getting hit by a train even though there were train tracks near our house. My pediatrician would have known that that job was the responsibility of my parents.

    Responsible parents that own firearms are aware that accidents can happen with a firearm just like any number of dangerous objects in their home. They do not need a physician to educate them about that fact. There are already a wealth of resources and options readily available to those parents. And criminals are not going to discuss storing their illegal firearms used in crimes with doctors.

    My pediatrician never asked us about firearms because he left his political views at home where they belonged. The current debate over the ownership and use of firearms is taking place in legislatures and courts around our nation. That is where that debate belongs, not in our doctors' offices. Professional speech for healthcare workers is properly limited in order to ensure that they do not interject their personal political desires into their professional relationships.

    Dr. Saunders exemplifies why these limits are necessary with political statements like "As much as the NRA and its ilk want to deny it, having a gun in the home is a risk factor for serious injury or death." or "By upholding this disgraceful law, the 11th Circuit Court has demonstrated allegiance to an ideology that favors the Second Amendment..." Do your patients a favor doc and keep your political ideology out of your professional practice.

    There's the answer to the violence in Chicago! Talk to "community leaders" who have not been able to stop the violence with all their gun control laws and high-minded talk. Then, pass out pamphlets with a catchy slogan that explains that guns are the source of violence instead of criminals. And I know that these pamphlets will not mention a lack of job opportunities with the loss of manufacturing jobs due to high taxes and over-regulation as a prime cause of the violence.

    I am sure that they mean well, but their efforts are misguided. Armed citizens with a job that can legally provide for themselves while defending themselves against violent thugs is a more practical solution.

    The liberals always want the government to investigate and arrest their political opponents - in this case Larry Pratt of the Gun Owners of America. All Mr. Pratt said was that one of the reasons that our Founding Fathers wanted us to have firearms was so that as a last resort we could resist tyranny.

    The idea that the people could resist the government is such a terrifying threat to statists like Rep. Carolyn Maloney that they take it personally. So, she takes Mr. Pratt's comments as a personal threat against her.

    This kind of story is a harsh example of why you have to take personal responsibility for protecting yourself. Depending on someone else to defend you from violence is precarious at best and down right dangerous at worst

    It is sad that so many people are deceived into thinking that police are like superheroes swooping down on criminals stopping them from committing crimes. Like most stories involving encounters with violent criminals, the police are not there when the attack occurs and victims have to act to save themselves.

    The so-called "self-defense experts" mentioned in this story are gun control supporters that preach just submitting to criminals as if that is self-defense. As we see from this story, submitting to the criminals gave them the upper hand placing them firmly in control of the situation.

    From what I have seen of Larry Pratt these days, he spends his time contending with opponents of gun rights, not the NRA.

    For me, it is about which organization has the stronger position on defending our Second Amendment protections. The differing approach to universal background check legislation was pivotal in my decision to join GOA. These Democrat politicians love compromise because they demand more and more compromise over time until they get what they originally wanted.

    Larry Pratt points out that the right of free people to keep and bear arms is God-given; therefore, compromising that right is unacceptable. So, effectiveness depends on your point of view since compromising my right to keep and bear arms is not effective to me.

    ozzymandus wrote: “I agree about all the junk mail from NRA, but they are still far more effective than GOA. GOA seems to spend as much time attacking NRA as supporting gun rights. Larry Pratt has a big problem with NRA, which doesn’t help anybody.”

A statist believes that the government should have supreme power and they believe that people are simply the property of the government. They would eliminate our Bill of Rights altogether because in their concept of rights those rights are granted by the government, not by God; thus, the government decides who can do what and who is entitled to exercise their “rights”.

    An example of this false concept of rights is where the US government uses their National Instant Background Check System to decide who should be eligible to legally purchase guns. Violent criminals readily have guns because they do not use legal means to obtain guns; so, the people using the background check system to legally obtain firearms are people who choose to obey the law. Nevertheless, some of those law-abiding people are denied by the background check system rendering them unable to exercise their right to keep and bear arms by legally purchasing a firearm.

    The democrat’s hate for the 2nd amendment has now spread to the first amendment, just as it increasingly comes to dominate every other part of the Federal Constitution.”

    The answer is yes - our nation’s blood supply has been tested for HIV for decades because the HIV virus is a blood-borne virus that lives in white blood cells

    “Has blood that is stored in hospitals for use in surgeries, emergency rooms, etc. been screened and tested for the AIDS factor?<

    Is there some freeper doctor or medical person who can answer this factually?”

    I’ll bet every freeper on this thread and on this board would like to know...including me!
