    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.

    Why can't liberals understand their is a difference between legally armed people and violent criminals? Guns do not cause violence - they stop violence. An armed society is a more civil society.

    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.

    The government to the rescue to stop "gun violence" in Providence, Rhode Island. Sigh - if we only had more government programs to stop violence (sarcasm). More government, more conferences, more money, more talk. They must use the same playbook as Chicago! Better call in the National Guard.

    And if you look at the pictures at the bottom, Michael Bloomberg's Everytown for Gun Safety was there reassuring us that the government can protect us from violent criminals.

    Of course, none of the proposed solutions deals directly with disarming criminals or provides any practical means of self-defense. Most of those people will never understand why things never change while they continue waiting for someone else to solve the problem of violence for them. That is what really makes me feel sad for those folks.

    I appreciate your experiences. California is a “tough nut to crack” as far as gun rights because it is controlled by liberal Democrats. The important thing is to be in the fight to protect our Second Amendment right as you said. I might also add that here is a Gun Owners of California organization which is associated with GOA, I believe that GOA was started in California.

    Q-ManRN to ozzymandus

    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.”

    Q-ManRN to Monorprise; Plummz; VerySadAmerican

    The Democrats like all statists hate our entire Constitution because it limits the power of government. 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.

    Monoprise wrote: “’If there is any doubt about the hatred that Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats hold for the Second Amendment, that hatred was made apparent last week.’

    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.”

    Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a great grassroots organization representing anyone who cherishes the Second Amendment! If you are not already a member, please consider joining.

    GOA is the only gun rights group that I know of that has pointed out that securing our southern border is necessary to secure the Second Amendment. Illegal immigrants fear private gun ownership because they come from cultures where gun ownership is universally associated with criminals like the drug cartels.

    They also stand fast against the false security provided by "universal" background checks and other liberal gun control lies.

    The Democrat-lead city government of Chicago has caused this violence by driving out small business through high taxes and over-regulation; thus, they have destroyed opportunities and created a growing welfare mentality of government dependency for decades. After decades of failure and growing violence, what is their answer to the crisis of violence?

    More government! Their answer is to bring in federal law enforcement and to get a financial bailout from the federal government or the UN. Their answer to too much government is more government. Welcome to socialism. Take a good look because our nation is treading this same path.

    Of course, the answer could not be lowering taxes, decreasing the size and scope of the city government, deregulating and allowing Chicago citizens to defend themselves. This approach would give responsible citizens a much needed opportunity to rebuild and take back their communities. Could the American way be the answer? Surely not according to Rahm Emanuel and Jesse Jackson!

    Liberals put education over experience especially in higher level positions because they value indoctrination.

    Thank you for the heads up about the the International Association of Chief’s of Police (IACP). I had also read a police officers comments some time ago pointing out that police chiefs are political appointees beholden to the politician that appointed them; whereas, sheriffs are elected and therefore they are accountable to the voters.

It’s a Trojan Horse organization that I believe will take a lead in the militarization of police forces that some here say they see.

    An example is the practice of giving college graduates preference over military veterans for jobs on the police dept. This did not used to be the case. In my opinion more college graduates are indoctrinated at liberal run universities, less so in the military.

    There have been articles written about the IACP but I do not think most people are aware of exactly who they are and the danger they pose.”

    Q-ManRN
    Will the endless charade of Chicago liberals trying to make it sound like their failed gun control policies will work ever stop?

    Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says "The illogical nature of what's happening here -- that government can intercede and prevent this from happening is overwhelming." What's happening here according to Superintendent McCarthy is the federal & state governments are not passing gun control legislation which is illogical to him.

    However, Chicago has passed an abundance of gun control laws rivaling cities like NYC & San Francisco. The Federal government created a national background check system with federal laws mandating it's usage at the point-of-sale back in the mid-1990's. Many states also run state-level criminal background checks for firearms purchases.

    Have these initiatives stopped violent crime in Chicago? Apparently not. Have they protected Chicago's law-abiding citizens? Definitely not. Why? Criminals do not obey the law and they use illegal means to obtain guns.

    Nevertheless, Superintendent McCarthy assures us that the government has the power to stop criminals with more laws. It is a fact that no law has ever stopped a criminal. Another fact is that no government in recorded history has ever been able or willing to protect every individual citizen from violence. Then, there is the fact that countless individuals have historically suffered violence at the hands of governments.

    Consider what Superintendent McCarthy considers successful in Chicago- supposedly decreased rampant violence in the streets of Chicago, gangs running amok, high levels of illegal drug abuse, staggering political corruption and a disarmed law-abiding populace completely dependent on the government for protection. I shudder to consider what constitutes his idea of failure!

    He end his comments with the right idea of individual accountability for violent behavior, but then denies his own citizens the ability to be accountable for protecting themselves against thugs with guns. Meanwhile, he says "There's too many guns coming in..." admitting that the criminals in Chicago remain well armed despite his city's numerous gun control laws.

    I pray for people that live in liberal-run cities like Chicago.

    Q-ManRN to MinuteGal; Bob Ireland

    Unfortunately, Lois Lerner is more likely to remain silent in order to be rewarded by the Democratic Party & the Washington elite. Remember the young woman who was a law student that testified before congress that the government had to pay for her birth control. I saw her in a news report recently and she is now a well-paid attorney for the Democratic Party. These communists know how to reward those faithful to the party and their followers know where their reward and their protection comes from.

    Giving Lois Lerner immunity is useless because she knows that she will be well rewarded for her service to the Democrats. She is not going to tell Congress or Darrell Issa anything that would endanger that reward because Congress cannot criminally prosecute her. That is why we need a prosecutor who has the real power to take those rewards away through criminal prosecution.

    MinuteGal said “Question is, with the heat and pressure on her mounting at full speed....will she fall on the sword for her Lord and Master like a good little disciple, or will she have a fiery epiphany on the road to to the Graybar Hotel.

  • Anti-Gun Columnist Asks If It’s Time for the Government to Kill “Gun Nuts”

    Q-ManRN to lbryce; MinuteGal; M Kehoe; mcmuffin; Matchett-PI; Seeking the truth; JulieRNR21; surfer; ...

    The source article starts with a recent quote from liberal commentator Rick Perlstein, “’Here is a truth so fundamental that it should be self-evident: When legitimately constituted state authority stands down in the face of armed threats, the very foundation of the republic is in danger.’” Mr. Perlstein & Ms. Madrak are both alluding to the stand-off at the Bundy ranch. Mr. Perlstein states that he is a historian. However, if the American colonists had taken Mr. Perlstein’s approach, there never would have been an American Revolution or a subsequently free America.

    Next, she asks “at what point does the federal government literally go to war with its own citizens?” The question that our Founders in America were concerned with is at what point do the people have to go to war with the government in order to ensure their God-given rights and liberties. The Bill of Rights was created to ensure that the government cannot take away certain foundational rights without due process under the Constitution.

    What is Ms. Madrak’s idea of due process under the Constitution? “mowing them down”, “armored tanks”, “drone strikes”! Nevertheless, she refers to gun owners as nuts. I am glad that she is not starting her own militia!

    Ms. Madrak talks about Ruby Ridge and Waco; however, the people that went to the Bundy ranch were concerned that Cliven Bundy would not become another casualty of reckless Federal tactical teams while trying to protect his livelihood.

    The Bureau of Land Management in Nevada, who was overseen by a relative of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, wanted to take Mr. Bundy’s cattle effectively taking his livelihood so that Harry Reid could move a Chinese solar company on that grazing land. Needless to say that this Chinese solar company is obviously lining Harry Reid’s pockets. And Ms. Madrak is posting her article on a website called “crooksandliars.com”! Too bad she does not know a crook when she sees one.

    Then Ms. Madrak says “And then we do have the militia types all over the country, just waiting for an excuse to start their own local uprising.” Right now their are groups of citizens (aka militias) helping local law enforcement officers to find foreign citizens who are illegally crossing our southern border. And why is this necessary? Our Federal government made arrangements in January for thousands of immigrants to come to America, but failed to properly prepare for their arrival or notify anyone else; so now, all of our Federal border patrol agents are tied up providing for these folks’ basic needs because these immigrants have no where to go.

    Then Ms. Madrak finishes with a familiar refrain for conservatives, “These assholes want a civil war so bad, they can taste it.” That is not what anybody wants. Here is a few things that I would like:

    1. A government that works within the legal constraints of the Constitution.
    2. A Federal government that does only what it was designed to do via the framework laid out in our Constitution.
    3. A Federal government that respects the Tenth Amendment by leaving all issues not delegated to the Federal government in the Constitution to the states. These issues would include things like healthcare, welfare & poverty, retirement savings, education, employment-related issues & housing.
    4. A government that does not pass laws so that politicians like Harry Reid can empower themselves and make sweetheart deals for themselves at the expense of hard working Americans.
    5. A government that does not use taxation as a political weapon by picking winners and losers.
    6. A government that does not see my hard-earned money as their money.
    7. Politicians who love individual liberty and believe people can solve their problems without a mind-boggling number of laws.
    8. Instead of focusing on inanimate objects like guns when we talk about acts of violence, how about we try focusing on people that commit those acts making them accountable rather than making their guns accountable? If we spent half as much time considering mentally illness control & criminal control as we do worrying about gun control, guns in the hands of criminals would be substantially reduced.

    With all the government abuses we see going on these days, I am truly perplexed that Ms. Madrak places such overwhelming power to eliminate her political opponents in the hands of the state; but then, that is the modern liberal for you. The state is always right just like the communists said.

    That makes me shudder! That is true because liberals see the source of violence as guns instead of people. Hence, the term “gun violence” implying that guns cause violence.

    Thus, liberals believe that even when violent acts do not involve guns removing guns would likely have prevented the violence from occurring. And therefore we can eliminate violence by eliminating guns. It is circular thinking removed from reality that is typical of brainwashing.

    Not to mention that in the liberal mind set individuals are rarely ever completely responsible for their actions in committing a crime. That is why they always talk about people having a rough childhood, having issues at school or work, etc.

    She was probably getting ready to call 9-1-1 in order to get a police officer. This is what happens when we disarm vulnerable people. You have to depend on the police.

    Great story from a female CCW holder traveling in Illinois illustrating why we need national reciprocity for CCW permits.

    Why is it that people think that all of the rights protected by our Bill of Rights apply to the entire nation except when it comes to the Second Amendment?

    More fear mongering by Hillary and the libs. I saw an interview with Michelle Bachman recently and she was asked about Hillary for President. Representative Bachman said that it would be like another 8 years of Barak Obama if Hillary got elected. That says it all for me!

    That is an interesting point; however, the real purpose of a warning shot is to prevent someone from attacking you by letting them know you are able to defend yourself (warning them). Once you are violently attacked like George Zimmerman was, it would be dangerous to attempt to fire a warning shot because that would give your attacker the opportunity to wrestle the gun away from you further imperiling you.

    If a jury convicts someone outside of the facts of the case, your attorney can appeal the case and make a motion for the case to be dismissed due to lack of evidence.

    I’m not sure this law is a good thing. Suppose this law had been in effect when George Zimmerman shot his attacker in self defense. He fired one shot only to end the threat to his life.

    Suppose at trial the prosecution had made a point that he should have fired a warning shot first? What happens when the jury goes to deliberate murder charges and have as fallback that George killed him when he didn’t have to because he didn’t fire a warning shot to see if that worked.

    I know George was on the ground being beaten and a warning shot would not have done anything, but that’s irrelevant if the jury wants to convict outside the facts. This now gives them the opportunity to do just that.
