The Left Calls for Confiscating Your Guns in Wake of California Shooting


ACTION:  The anti-gun Left is pulling out the stops and is now calling for gun confiscation.  We have to meet “fire with fire.”  So forward this alert to ten people.  Encourage your pro-gun family and friends to sign up for GOA alerts.

And, you can also give Gift Memberships to your family/friends this holiday season.  We need your support and activism more than ever!


The Anti-gun Left Declares War on Your Gun Rights

President Obama took to the airwaves on Sunday night and told the nation we need more gun control. 

Hillary Clinton — the one who will most likely be the Democrat nominee for president in 2016 — recently called for an all-out war on guns, as well.

And then, for the first time since 1920, the New York Times published an editorial on the front page of their newspaper.

This is important because the editorial page of the Times reflects the thinking of the anti-gun Democrat Left.

And what is the theme of the Times‘ most important message in nearly a hundred years?

In two words:  Gun Confiscation.

The Left “drops the gloves,” calls for gun confiscation

The New York Times said this weekend that:

It is past time to stop talking about halting the spread of firearms, and instead to reduce their number drastically — eliminating some large categories of weapons and ammunition.It is not necessary to debate the peculiar wording of the Second Amendment. No right is unlimited and immune from reasonable regulation.

The Times continues that there would be no grandfather clause for the 300,000,000-plus firearms we currently own:

[I]t would require Americans who own these kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

So there you have it.  You need to give up your guns — for the good of the country.

Ironically, the editors at The Washington Post are furious with the Times for letting the “cat out of the bag.”

They called the Times’ editorial “predictably polarizing.”

But as one insightful journalist noted, the Post editors are only upset because the Times’ piece confirms “every gun owner’s worst fear — namely, that all the talk about gun safety and reducing gun violence is just a sham, and the real agenda of the gun control movement is total confiscation.”

Gun confiscation has always been the goal of the anti-gun Left

Everyone has known that a Hillary presidency would result in greater restrictions on our Second Amendment rights.


Not a GOA member yet?  You can join Gun Owners of America today for only $20!


But now her mouthpiece at the Times has explicitly revealed what we knew already was the case — the Left wants to CONFISCATE YOUR GUNS.

Anti-gun radicals usually try not to say this publicly, because they know that talk of gun confiscation loses elections.

But when caught on “candid camera,” they tell you they want to confiscate guns.

Take Maryland’s Deputy Attorney General — a liberal Democrat — who was recently caught on hidden camera stating “we should ban guns altogether, period.”

Or remember when New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) said, in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting, that among the different gun control proposals that were being bandied about, “[gun] confiscation could be an option.”

Or when several Democrat state senators were caught on an open microphone in New Jersey saying, “We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate.”

This is their agenda.

Anti-gunners blame YOU for massacres like San Bernardino’s

In its editorial, the Times lambasted pro-gun, Republican politicians who “abet would-be killers by creating gun markets for them, and voters allow those politicians to keep their jobs.”

That’s what the Left thinks of you.  They think that your rights and freedoms … that your guns which have NEVER harmed anyone — are the problem because you are aiding and abetting killers.

These are the stakes we face in the 2016 elections.

If Clinton wins, we can expect her to push the same Times’ agenda, which will include the elimination of “large categories of weapons and ammunition” — probably by executive fiat.

And we can expect the Obama-packed courts to roll over and ignore the “peculiar wording of the Second Amendment.”

You have eleven months before the November, 2016, elections.

And everything we believe in is at stake.

Please forward this alert and encourage your pro-gun family and friends to sign up for GOA alerts.

And take this holiday season as an opportunity to give Gift Memberships to your family and friends.

We need your support and activism more than ever!

Yet another self defense protest…

January 27, 2015

Another Police shooting is drawing a protest. This time in Denver. Again, it would appear to be fully justified as an act of self defense, or an act that was done in the defense of another innocent party. In this case a Denver Police Officer. The Officer was struck by the stolen vehicle that the teenage girl that was shot and killed was driving suffering a leg injury.

What the heck..? That “girl” as many are describing her intentionally used that stolen vehicle as a weapon and injured another person. That person happened to be a Police Officer. Don’t Cops have self defense rights..?

While listening to talk radio last evening (sorry but I don’t remember if it was on KHOW or KOA) a caller talked about how vicious the Officers of The Denver Police Department are. This was a Whiskey Tango Foxtrot moment for this retired Paramedic. Compared to virtually every other Police Department in the greater Denver area, with the possible exceptions of Commerce City and Broomfield, are the most restrained when it comes to physical means of containing a suspect. Indeed, IMO? If this had happened in Arvada, Lakewood, Westminster, or Wheatridge? Every other kid in that vehicle would have been shot, if not killed!

Kudos from this retired Paramedic to the Denver Police Officers involved for a job well done in a manner that both complies with common ethical principles, and professionalism.

For the “anonymous” posted about the teen’s death on their Twitter account 

This was not “murder,” not at all.

Lock and Load! Political ratings are out from GOA, and they may just surprise you!

October 19, 2014

Gun Owners of America has just released its 2014 Voter Guide, which rates all the candidates running for federal office.  Examine the grades of candidates in your state, and see where they really stand on gun rights!

ACTION:  Please circulate this alert to all of your pro-gun family and friends.  It’s the least we can do to protect our liberties!

IN OTHER NEWS:  GOA Countering Bloomberg’s Agenda

It’s tough being an anti-gun radical like Michael “Big Gulp” Bloomberg these days.

The former New York City Mayor has pumped millions of dollars into his fanatical effort to get gun control passed.

But that money was no match for the massive grassroots resistance that awaited him.  Even liberal media outlets like National Public Radio were forced to report on the unparalleled strength of GOA’s grassroots:

“Gun Owners of America showed with one email alert that it could help flood the phone lines on Capitol Hill days before the Senate vote.” — NPR, December 26, 2013

The result?  Bloomberg lost an epic battle in the U.S. Senate last year — even while media pundits predicted his minions would win.

Bloomberg trying to bypass state legislatures

Within the past year or so, the Bloomberg forces lost ground in several states and failed to pass expanded background checks in many places where GOA was active (like Nevada and New Hampshire).

Having suffered so many defeats, Bloomberg is trying to make an end run around elected legislatures by forcing referendum votes around the country.

And to that effort, “Daddy Warbucks” has pledged $50 million in his crazed effort to remodel this country’s gun laws to resemble England’s.

Turning most gun owners into criminals

Bloomberg’s first attempt at buying a state is in Washington. If he is successful in the Evergreen State, simply owning a gun — without making a tiny mistake which would land you in jail — will be like dancing barefoot in a pit of scorpions.

Bloomberg’s proposal — an initiative which will be voted on in the November election — is 18 pages long.  So the only thing most Washingtonians will know about it is the lies Bloomberg is paying to spew over the airwaves.

Bloomberg’s minions have more than a dozen similar referendums planned around the country for 2015 and 2016.

All of this means that educating and mobilizing the grassroots — and the next generation — becomes even more important.

To that end:

* Gun Owners of America has produced a Fact Sheet to expose the real dangers behind I-594 in Washington.

* And GOA has also issued alerts here and here into Washington to mobilize gun owners there.

The Left’s proudest moments. But it wasn’t…

January 1, 2014

This year might have marked the high point for the Left in Colorado.After a decade of well-funded, well-coordinated advances, the Left got most of what they wanted. With renewal energy mandates on rural electrics, attacks on fracking, legalizing voter mischief, and anti-gun laws, 2013 should have been the Left’s proudest moment. But it wasn’t.Thanks in great part to the multi-year efforts of the Independence Institute, anti-guns bills–like a ban on concealed-carry on campus–failed. The Left‘s massive “for the children” educational tax increase, Amendment 66, went down in humiliating defeat. Education reformers were re-elected in Douglas County, and reformers were swept into office in Jefferson County and Loveland school district. And for the first time in state history, State Senators were recalled.The message of 2013 was loud and clear – real Coloradans, not urban elitists funded by Michael Bloomberg, control the destiny of this freedom-loving state. Could this be the turning point in Colorado history? Well, that largely depends on you. Those who have invested in Independence over the years made these 2013 victories and so many others possible. We thank them all. I want to be thanking you in coming years for even greater victories that YOU made possible by investing TODAY! Please invest in the Independence Institute right now by making a tax-deductible contribution HERE.And remember, every time you give to Independence, a Leftist dies a little inside. Happy New Year!

Straight on,

A Government shutdown: SO WHAT!

October 1, 2013

The various pundits are all up in arms about the government shutting down. Police, Fire and all other essential services will not be there when needed, and all that.

Guess what folks? It’s all a dog and pony show. No essential services will be turned off, none, period. No, grandma will not be forced to eat dog food because of a shut off of Social Security. Veterans will not be denied medical care, or any of the other doomsday theories that are flying around. No, the prisons will not have the doors thrown open either.

So, then what is happening? What we are seeing is called direct democracy being carried out by the elected representatives of the people. The fiasco known as obamacare, a disaster beyond any doubt, is being challenged as the founders saw fit to place in our Constitution. Would you rather have an armed revolution, or widespread rioting take place. As happens in other nations all to often? Perhaps I shouldn’t ask that given the current mood of we the people.

The onerous law passed by onerous people in positions of power needs to be scrapped, completely. Perhaps followed up by a rather lengthy session of tar and feathering for those responsible for it’s passage.

Simply Stop Watching Us!

June 18, 2013

The revelations about the National Security Agency’s surveillance apparatus, if true, represent a stunning abuse of our basic rights. We as a free people need to demand the U.S. Congress reveal the full extent of the NSA’s spying programs. Further, we should demand of our appointed leaders that it cease and desist! It’s bad enough when those on the left in government say that we, loyal Americans, are terrorists, for disagreeing with their insane policies. Now though, they choose to use the force of the federal government against us.

While mostly known for support of the Second Amendment Conservative Libertarian Outpost has always, and will always stand for the entire Bill of Rights. I urge any and all to contact their Senators and Congresspersons to not only put a halt to this egregious use of power but to punish those responsible. No “Nuremberg style” defense allowed either! This went well beyond any sort of “just following orders” or doing my job.

Tools for doing this are available at the NRA homepage as well as Gun Owners of America. Or contact them directly by phone. If perhaps your representatives are some of those that recently have voted, or even that they hinted that they were in favor of more gun control remind them that it is the Second Amendment that protects the rest of the Bill of Rights. While we normally call for polite and courteous contact this may well be the time to blow their collective heads away with the force of your feelings about this!

The Right Not to be Raped or Murdered

February 27, 2013

How about it politically correct hoplophobes and practitioners of misandry? You hate gun owners. We hate your stopping our ability to properly and effectively defend what is ours.

When Injustice Becomes Law, Rebellion Becomes Duty: What sort of sell out will the NRA do this time?

January 9, 2013

This Life member has to wonder just what sort of sell out to gun owners and members will the NRA give in the upcoming “talks” with the nit wits from the capital. Or should that be plural..?

Perhaps more ex post facto laws?

Maybe it will be something as simple as taking away the rights of our combat veteran’s?

Or defining normal grief over the death of a loved one as a mental illness that will forever disbar a person from owning a firearm?

More loss of rights over less than felonies? Say, a traffic citation..?

Could a persons choice of career be used against them when it comes to firearms..? I mean, we know that all bartenders are crazy. Right?

Extending Free Fire Zones so that criminals can butcher at will certainly seems to be on the agenda.

Limit magazine (clips to the uneducated) capacity will let the swarm attackers have little fear of an effective response.

Same as above when it comes to gang attacks on the innocent.

What about gang rapist’s? It normally takes at least three hits from a pistol to stop an attacker right in their tracks. How many were involved in the attack on that young woman in India that made international news? Five was it? Must be hoplophobic fuzzy math that makes ten cartridges a magic number.

Make sure that you don’t forget about those evil looking things that make a weapon more dangerous either NRA. After all, looks can kill. The innocent that is…

Don’t forget more sexism while you are at it NRA. After all, women never commit an evil act. At least unless a man forces them too. Heck, what’s a little more misandry? If not actually written into law then in actual enforcement with a wink and nod from the hoplophobics in charge. Why, you could make the killing of a husband or boyfriend legal the law of the land, and not just in Colorado! What a victory that would be!

Oh, and don’t forget to pat yourselves on the back while at the same time begging for bucks when you put lipstick on what you did for the crisis of the week!

Most elected officials would love nothing more…

October 12, 2012
Most elected officials would love nothing more than to take gun owners’ votes and then never hear from them again until the next election rolls around.

They think they’re MORE than capable of running our lives for us, after all. Voters like you and me just “get in the way.”

Well, I’m a State Representative who believes the opposite . . .

. . . which is why I’ve joined with Rocky Mountain Gun Owners to sponsor the Colorado Constitutional Carry Act in the upcoming Legislative Session.

I believe it’s time for you and me to send a loud and clear message to the General Assembly that the days of demanding gun owners’ votes and then doing nothing in return are OVER.

So won’t you please click here and sign the petition to your State Representative and State Senator urging them to vote and pass the Colorado Constitutional Carry Bill?

As you know, if passed, Constitutional Carry would restore the right of every law-abiding Colorado citizen to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families — WITHOUT going through a bunch of bureaucratic rigmarole!

In short, if you’re legally able to own a firearm, you’re legally able to carry it concealed for self-defense. Period.

This is the way it’s done in Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming.

And despite the hand-wringing of the gun-grabbers, the news media and government bureaucrats, those states have not seen a rise in shoot-outs and vigilante justice since passing Constitutional Carry.

I know you’re not surprised.

When law-abiding citizens are able to protect themselves, criminals soon realize they had better start looking for another line of work.

After all, attacking a “victim” armed with a concealed firearm can often result in early “retirement!”

The fact is, the gun-grabbers’ overbearing and UNCONSTITUTIONAL “regulations” and “requirements” are meant to do nothing more than undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens just like you and me.

After all, do CRIMINALS ask for government permission before they carry a concealed weapon?

Do CRIMINALS have to pay fees or take training classes?

Of course not.

But under current law in Colorado:*** Government officials can still deny you a concealed-carry permit;

All they have to do is claim they’re worried you MIGHT commit a crime in the future -– a power which will almost certainly be abused in certain areas.

*** Military veterans can be STRIPPED of the right to carry a concealed weapon;

Simply acknowledging mental stress to an anti-gun government psychologist upon returning from war could trigger the ban.

*** Colorado gun owners must pay a fee every five years, or have their “training renewed,” just to keep their permits;

Some estimates show these regulations cost law-abiding Colorado gun owners up to $3 million every year, which is why some “pro-gun” organizations (of whom many are firearms instructors) supported this provision in the past.

That’s why it’s vital you act today!

The good news is, Colorado Second Amendment supporters just like you have already proven we can create a grassroots firestorm.

Our job is to force the Legislature to pass Constitutional Carry when they come back to Denver.

No other group is fighting for the right to keep and bear arms in Colorado but Rocky Mountain Gun Owners . . .

. . . which is why I’m a member of RMGO myself.

But this fight won’t be easy.

Gun control groups are likely going to be pouring millions into Colorado to brow-beat weak-kneed politicians into DEFEATING Constitutional Carry.

You and I can’t let that happen.

That’s why clicking here and signing the petition is so important.

Over the next few months, my goal is to gather up to 100,000 petitions from Second Amendment supporters just like you so that we can FLOOD the Legislature with these petitions and show every elected official in Denver you and I mean business.

Then, using mail, email and phone banks, I plan to recruit an additional 50,000 Second Amendment supporters all across Colorado to help join in this fight.

And when the fight really begins to heat up, my hope is to run targeted newspaper and radio ads to help us get the votes to put us over the top.

Unfortunately, I’m afraid even all this won’t be enough.

If you and I want to DEFEAT the gun-grabbers’ anti-gun lobby, we must be prepared to push on every front.

None of these tactics will be cheap. So I must ask for your generous financial support, as well.

Mandatory begging for bucks link.

Gun Control; The hidden agenda of the epic failure obama regime

July 27, 2012

Fast and Furious was a pretty blatant attempt by the obama regime to stoke the fires for advancing the cause of hoplophobia in these not so United States. Any time any restrictions are placed upon The Bill of Rights, on any of those rights, it weakens all the others. That said, it is the Second Amendment that protects all of those other rights from an overpowering and abusive government.

Since the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado happened there has been yet again a resurrection of cries and lamentations pleading for more restrictions on we the peoples ability to properly and effectively defend ourselves, our families, friends, and nation. These misguided pleas are little more than emotional gambits that would truly lessen freedom and liberty while in fact exposing all of us to even more danger without the ability to defend ourselves.

Again, we hear about automatic weapons that were not used and are nearly impossible to acquire legally here in the United States. We hear that so called Assault Rifles have no legitimate uses outside the realm of the military or law enforcement. Some people are so misinformed that even responding to such arguments exposes one to the dangers of lowering oneself to their level of ignorance. Or about the evils of high capacity magazines (called clips by the ignoramuses) by those that have never apparently heard of “swam attacks.”

All the old false arguments about gun ownership are always, once again, raised as well. Hopefully the American people have not been so brainwashed as to believe things like a gun in the home will most likely be used against you. Or that a gun will not help fend off rapes or other assaults.

Then there are all the utterly ridiculous arguments about the militia clause of the Second Amendment.

This, from Texas Fred’s Blog is an excellent comment;

obama’s quote…

“I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms,” Obama said. “But I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not on the streets of our cities.”

I could NOT agree more with him. I also believe that every American is a member of the militia and a soldier for America when the time comes and when the situation demands it of them. Because for me, the 2nd Amendment means that if America is attacked by its enemies, foreign or DOMESTIC, that my right to bear arms entitles me to have the ability to defend her. I in essence become a soldier with the duty to protect my country and the 2nd Amendment assures me the proper tools to do my duty.

And as for the statement that the AK 47 is best suited for the battlefield is also a true. A battlefield is not a specific area or terrain…it is the place where the enemy is met and confronted. A battlefield is wherever the fighting takes place. So, my AK47 is suited for wherever in America I choose to be.

To be honest, I don’t believe ANY regulation on firearms should be allowed. I believe our Founding Fathers wanted us to be on an even keel at all times with all of our potential enemies. Back then, the enemy had muskets and so did we. As progress of the firearm came about, so should our right to have the best arms we can.

If our potential enemies had high capacity magazines or full auto weapons, so should We The People have this same ability. We can not be an effective and well regulated militia if we have inferior weapons to those of our enemies. I am sure that our Founding Fathers did not expect future generations to fight a tyrannical govt or any enemy that could outshoot us or mow us down with little or no effort. That is why they used the word “ARMS”, to include ALL weapons. I do believe that weapons of mass destruction should certainly be regulated. However, I can not help but think that the regulation of our everyday firearms, such as caliber size, magazine capacity, rapid fire, size of weapon, barrel length, silencers and so on, is in direct violation of the 2nd Amendment as our Founding Fathers intended. All of this nonsense was created by liberals who inch by inch, convinced the American people these moves were necessary to protect us. In reality, ever regulation has made us less and less able to resist those that would seek to control us and take our rights away from us.

As I am sure everyone here knows fully well, the 2nd Amendment is not about hunting or even about personal protection against home invaders or muggers. Yes, those are legitimate purposes to be recognized, but our 2nd Amendment is about Americans being allowed to maintain the ability to retain all other rights gratned to us by GOD. About our ability to fight, on an even footing, all enemies that want to take away our freedoms and force us into submission.

During the Revolution, We The People owned muskets as did our enemy, the British. Could you imagine us winning the Revolution if we were regulated into having less than the same arms as the British? It would have been very difficult if not impossible to win this war that was the birth of America. If not for the right to keep and bear arms, we would all still be be drinking tea and shouting long live the queen. Well, every regulation that has been put in place regarding firearms have slowly eroded our ability to oppose a tyrannical goverment. If the time ever came, (And I seriously hope it NEVER does), We The People will be at a huge disadvantage. The arms our govt allows us to have now are nowhere equally matched against those we would have to fight against if a tyrant commanding our military wanted to disarm us.

Of some concern is the fact that would our soldiers and law enforcment officers ever raise their arms and use them on everyday Americans? Would they really disarm We The People after having sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution? I hope not.

However, Hitler convinced countless German soldiers to do exactly that. These soldiers swore allegiance to Hitler and killed their own countrymen. They killed them by the millions under the orders of their leader. How did so many become convinced to do this? Willingly? Did none of them have a conscience? They had weapons so why did none of them turn them on Hitler and his henchmen directly?

So, having history as my lesson, I worry that it could happen again. I bet that proud German citizens never thought that fellow Germans in uniform would kill them…but it happened. I have even read that German jews that proudly served in uniform for Germany in WWI were killed as well. Nothing protected you if Hitler and his troops wanted you dead. This is one reason I find it particularly odd when I hear jewish Americans shout for gun control. Do they not realize what they are saying?

Could history like this really repeat itself? Have we learned from it? I would like to, but we are human and just as humans have done for thousands of generations, we always seem to make the same mistakes over and over. Could it happen again?

We are living in interesting times. I know that during every election it is said that this is the most important one. However, I think it is a fact this time.

I have read much about all of our presidents throughout American history and even though I have not agreed with the ideaology of some of them, I do believe that every one of our presidents in the past loved America. That they were doing what they believed was best for Americans, at least to some degree. Of course, corruption in our government has always existed, but these were almost always for personal gain and cronism. This is the first time that I feel we have a president in office, along with other HIGH ranking politicians that truly do HATE America and want to destroy it. That they really have never been proud of their country their entire adult lives. That it is more than just about stealing our treasury for their own person gain or taking action for more power and control. For the first time, I am almost positive that those in charge want more than wealth and power, they want to DESTROY America.

Just like those evil individuals of history who hated their fellow countrymen so much that they threw open the gates to their country’s enemies that have led to complete destruction, obama wants to do the same. Just remember his quote to the russian ambassador not that long ago. Look at the policies and laws he is enacting that make us more and more vulnerable. Not only is he working to disarm the people, he is working diligently to dismantle our military and destroy our nukes. What is he doing, and why is he allowed to do this?

I think obma is a lackey of someone with even more power and influence and that obama is a pawn that will be discarded after his purpose has been fulfilled. I used to not believe in conspiracy theories and thought that only wackos would think like this. No more.

I hope I am merely being paranoid. I hope that we have a legitimate election that sees obama out the door. An election that keeps and takes our senate and house. And that Romney does the things he has promised. Until November elections are passed and even more so, that Romney is sworn in, I will remain slightly uneasy. They say that good always triumphs over evil…I hope they are right.

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

SOURCE

If it saves only one life? No, it’s not worth it, period. How many lives have been lost in the name of freedom and liberty over the years?

Wake up America! Get rid of the power mad big government authoritarians of all political stripes! If you don’t? Then be prepared for a blood bath. Either in a full blown revolution, or by the very government that you pathetically expect to protect you!
