Much to be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

November 27, 2013

“We may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks….” — President George Washington, October 3, 1789

This year, gun owners have been in the fight of our lives.

The President of the United States used all his power and ability in a fierce attempt to ram gun control down the throats of the American people.

The media relentlessly supported his cause, repeatedly telling Americans that the Sandy Hook shooting last December had changed everything … that the “tide had turned” … and that Americans were now in favor of more gun control.

At points during the battle, many gun owners may have felt like their forefathers of old who suffered at Valley Forge — disheartened, ill-equipped and facing a much larger enemy.

But, as is often the case, the victory does not go to the loudest.  And to date, the President has been frustrated beyond belief in his attempts to eviscerate the Second Amendment.

As recently as Sunday, MSNBC weepingly pronounced the death of gun control for the 113th Congress.

Your support has made a tremendous difference in this fight this year!

In 1789, President George Washington recognized from whence their Ultimate Help had come in defeating the British, in establishing a Constitution, and realizing the tremendous liberty they were then enjoying.

We should do no less this Thanksgiving, as we consider the monumental opposition that we have overcome in defending the Second Amendment.

Not only that, we want to thank you for all your hard work.

And thank you for all your support, which has kept GOA on the front lines!

As members of GOA’s grassroots network, you have fought alongside us every step of the way.  And the results have been astounding.

Consider what the anti-gun Left had to say about GOA’s involvement this year:

* “Democrats blame ‘Gun Owners of America’ for gun control setback” — TPM, April 8, 2013.

* “[GOA] pushes the NRA [to the right] and makes it hard for the NRA to be reasonable.” — Senator Harry Reid, April 6, 2013

* “Gun Owners of America was the most active outside group in early efforts to block all gun control efforts.” — The Examiner, April 28, 2013

* “Upstart group [GOA] pushes harder than the NRA” — New York Times, April 3, 2013.

Your support has ticked off the media this year!

It was the New York Times that lamented how GOA was “successful [in] freezing senators, particularly Republicans” from supporting gun controls like expanded background checks.

Bottom line:  Gun owners were able to defeat every word of gun control that came down the pike — and it was thanks to gun owners like you who send us to Washington to lobby on your behalf.

Thank you for helping support us on the front lines this year!

Our successful fight to kill the Feinstein semi-auto ban … to prevent limits on magazine capacity … to defeat attempts at banning private sales of firearms … were all just the tip of the iceberg.

And while our victories from earlier this year were welcome news, we must recognize the battle is not over.

Senator Harry Reid wants to pack the courts with liberal judges who will gut the Second Amendment and uphold ObamaCare — to the detriment of gun owners nationwide.

And the President is just one well-publicized shooting away from re-launching his failed gun control agenda.

Next month, you can be sure that the media will try to jumpstart the gun control issue as it memorializes the tragic Sandy Hook shooting.

But GOA will not be silent.  You can find us on the webon Facebook … and on InstaGram.

We will be rallying the troops to keep the heat on Congress.  And we hope that, as Christmas approaches, you will consider gifting a GOA membership to your family and friends, so that we will increase our voice in Washington.

We need you — and them — in the fight!

Finally, as promised in an earlier alert, here are a couple of interviews that GOA has done recently — interviews we think you’ll enjoy:

From all of us here at Gun Owners of America:  Have a blessed Thanksgiving this Thursday!

This needs to be seen by every person in this nation, especially those that voted for Obama.

November 20, 2013

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem, just let me in,” says the man.

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

“Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the senator.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

And with that, St . Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go. Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises…

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

“Now it’s time to visit heaven.”

So, 24 hours pass with the senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulder.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

The devil looks at him, smiles and says, “Yesterday we were campaigning…Today you voted.”

From Texas Fred!

NAGR: What the NRA should be! No compromise with your rights, ever!

November 12, 2013

While there are many Second Amendment support groups the most well known, and reviled by those that suffer from the mental illness hoplophobia really does very little for the day to day supporter of the Bill of Rights. That being the National Rifle Association. Please don’t get me wrong about the NRA. They are possibly the very first safety organization of any type in history, and it is doubtless that the firearm safety programs started by them have saved countless lives, as well as reduced severe injuries all around the world, and have served the vital function of providing a working template for virtually all safety programs.

Feared by many politicians, the NRA has clout. However, when it comes to politics? The NRA is a true failure. They refuse to fight the tough fights. Only getting into those in which the probability of success is high. Indeed, the refusal to actually get involved in the dirty work led to the formation of Gun Owners of America as well as others. Wyoming Gun Owners, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and others like them get into the trenches and fight. Also, The National Association for Gun Rights has been getting results that have been quite impressive as of late. Please watch the video for more about NAGR, and donate what you can to each of the groups mentioned above.

 

Racist anti freedom and liberty at work in Cheyenne!

October 31, 2013
Dear Supporter of Liberty and Freedom!

Urgent, a so-called — Right Wing Extremist police training — in Cheyenne Tomorrow, your calls are need immediately.A radical anti-gun group “The Anti-Defamation League” (ADL) has been invited to Wyoming by Cheyenne’s Police Chief.

This training is conveniently packaged in an all too familiar “hate crime” scenario. Here is the info from Cheyenne PD.

Of course the ADL’s gun control agenda is well documented and the organization has a long history of demonizing law abiding gun owners like you and me.

From the ADL website:

The federal government and the states should recognize the importance of maintaining bans on the use or caching of weapons by domestic extremists. In addition, the federal government and the states should ensure that common-sense restrictions on firearms in schools and government buildings continue.  In short, making it more difficult to obtain firearms – through mechanisms such as increased waiting periods, limitations on purchases, and promoting stricter gun safety, licensing, and registration laws – will help safeguard our communities …It’s a simple strategy, that anyone that possesses and uses scary guns must be a domestic extremist.

The late Aaron Zelman was the founding director of JPFO, and he has exposed the ADL for its gun control shenanigans more times than I can remember.

Like in this JPFO Alert when the ADL listed the famous Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot in Kentucky as an “Extremist” event.

You read that right…a twice a year family event where shooting “legal machine guns” is considered a “Domestic Extremist” event by the ADL!

 

Check out the fun in this video report from History Channel

And as you probably guessed by now Cheyenne’s chief is also a ‘documented’ gun grabber — in fact just this year Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak testified against a bill introduced by pro-gun champion Representative Allen Jaggi.

This WyGO supported legislation HB-103 would have enforced Wyoming’s current preemption law — which stops cities from enacting gun control that would create a “patchwork of ordinances” across our state.

In open committee Chief Kozak argued that the city of Cheyenne has the “right” to impose gun control on the citizens.

 


Brian Kozak former Avon Colorado Police Chief in 2008

The chief has hailed ADL’s extremist advanced training as, and I quote- “one of the best trainings of my 28 years in law enforcement”.

It has become obvious that the chief has long forgotten that he is a public servant and that Obama style gun control isn’t on the average citizens list of things to do in Wyoming.

Please contact the Cheyenne Police Chief — Brian Kozak —  and demand that this so-called “Right Wing Extremist Training” by a radical anti-gun activist group is called off!

The Quote of the Decade:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006~

“America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”

Barack Hussein Obama IS that failure of leadership, and he is right, Americans DO deserve better.

Pass it on ’til eternity… It was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity! SO, USE IT!

The following was sent to me via email, I have no link to it for citation, so please, just take it as it is written and if you agree, fine, if not, oh well, I am tired of arguing with the BRAIN DEAD of America.

The Truth about the Health Care Bills

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional.

What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

The Real War on Women

An unprecedented abuse of power

April 30, 2013

In an unprecedented abuse of power, politicians in Colorado are presently meeting to silence you and millions more law-abiding gun-rights supporters. Their clear goal is to shut down Rocky Mountain Gun Owners once and for all.

In what can only be described as a kangaroo court proceeding in the Colorado legislature, anti-gun politicians are in the process of sanctioning and silencing a private citizen whose only offense is steadfastly defending the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution.

As you will see, their ultimate goal is to close you off from the political process and bankrupt Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, eliminating the most effective gun-rights group in Colorado history.

So before you read any further, I hope you will click on this link I asked my staff to give me and make a personal gift — a sacrifice — to defeat them today.

Because if we lose… it could be the last political battle we are able to fight.

My friend, this is happening right now. Let me give you the facts:

RMGO knows the most effective means of pressuring weak-kneed politicians is by contacting their constituents and having them directly lobby their so-called “representatives.”

That’s exactly what we did with a certain Colorado GOP “representative” named Cheri Gerou. However, Gerou didn’t like hearing from her pro-gun constituents on gun-rights issues and she EXPOLODED with a public temper tantrum.

On February 15th, “Representative” Gerou initiated a public and violent altercation with gun rights supporter and RMGO staffer Joe Neville.

With the height of arrogance, “Representative” Gerou summoned Mr. Neville to her, confronted him violently, verbally assaulted him — saying F**K YOU — multiple times, and physically intimidated and assaulted him by poking him in the chest multiple times.

And when Mr. Neville very calmly replied by suggesting to the “representative” that he believed RMGO would notify her constituents of her behavior, she EXPOLODED AGAIN, summoned the Sergeant of Arms and demanded the gun-rights defender be kicked out of the State Capitol.

Then in a clear effort to turn the tables after her despicable behavior, “Representative” Gerou scurried to the anti-gun, Democratic Speaker of the House and filed an official complaint against Mr. Neville.

That’s right, despite her role as the instigator, aggressor, and arguably criminal actor in this encounter, Rep. Gerou had the arrogance to file a complaint against Mr. Neville and demand that he be “investigated.”

Those are the facts.

However, I can’t begin to tell you how bad it will be if we lose this fight…

1) Mr. Neville and others could be banned from the State Capitol, eliminating their rights to lobby their representatives.

2) All real, pro-gun dissent could be muted at the State Capitol.

3) Lawyer fees could bankrupt Rocky Mountain Gun Owners – preventing RMGO from contacting you regarding the actions of anti-gun politicians like Representative Cheri Gerou.

4) A loud, chilling message will be sent to gun-rights supporters across the country — standing up for your God-given right to own a gun will come at a political and financial cost.

You see, if the anti-gun politicians are successful in silencing the pro-gun community in Colorado, it will send chilling shock waves through the pro-gun community not only in the Rocky Mountains, but across the country.

Anti-gun politicians are making a clear statement: if you stand up for your 2nd amendment rights you will be harassed, cursed at, charged with a crime, called before an anti-gun tribunal, ridiculed publicly in the press and ultimately have sanctions imposed by an anti-gun legislative body.

That’s why I’m asking you to make a special – but immediate – contribution to Rocky Mountain Gun Owners today. The stakes are so high.

My friend, I’ve spent my entire life fighting for gun rights. I have stood toe-to-toe with Dianne Feinstein fighting the so-called “assault-weapons” ban. I led the charge against former Colorado Governor Bill Owens when he supported gun control legislation in Colorado. I have been under fire, testifying in front of hundreds of legislators across the county defending your 2nd Amendment rights to “keep and bear arms.”

Today, it seems like I’m fighting them all at the same time and more.

And while I will never give up the fight for the 2nd Amendment… I can’t continue to fight without your immediate help.

So before you finish this email, please click on this link and make an immediate personal gift to help defend gun rights today.

Your donation of $100, $50, or even $30 – or whatever you can afford – will help us battle this onslaught.

My friend, as I wrote above… we are in trouble.

I have never written a more personal note for help before and I don’t know that I ever will again. And I hope after reading my email you will decide to join me in fighting back by going to this link and making the most generous contribution you can afford.

I’m going to fight back with — or without — your help. The only question is: will I have the necessary resources to fight and win or will we be run over by the anti-gun mobs that clearly have the system rigged in their favor?

It’s up to you.

Please send help if you can.

Very Sincerely Yours,

 

Dudley Brown
Executive Director

P.S. Anti-gun forces and politicians around the country are trying to muzzle gun rights activists with threats of intimidation, personal attacks and even hauling us up on trumped-up “ethics” charges.

If we let them get away with it, there will literally be nothing stopping them from destroying our Second Amendment rights. ~snip~

Alright folks, the battle lines are drawn. Are we a Constitutional Republic or a utilitarian one size fits all democracy where the majority always rules? Where the political correctness of the day rules. Think about it people. There was a time when women could not vote. When only land owning white males could vote, own land, or (sickeningly) other humans. When weapons were denied based upon race, gender, or religion.

Think about it; Most of the real problems in our society are directly associated with the heavy hand of government at some point in our history. Be that local, County, State, or on the Federal level. On the about me / opening page of this blog I said that Liberty and Freedom most often provide solutions. Government most often only causes problems. I am a philosophical LIBERTARIAN and that will never change! Nothing has changed at all to alter that position.

I am a MARINE CORP BRAT! Figure out the consequences.

In closing I have one thing to say;

Come and kill me. Today is a good day to die.

 

 

A conspiracy theory for the ages: A grain of truth may have sewn the seeds…

April 2, 2013

Conspiracy theorists in America today have become so plentiful as to become laughable. A theory has been postulated concerning practically every major event on the planet, complete with alleged “proof” that supposedly not only vindicates the theory but legitimizes the theorist.

Regular readers of this column over the past four years since it was launched will note that the writer rarely buys into such theories and has, in fact, warned about the danger inherent in these theories and the people who devise them. This column, for example, took great pains to provide detailed evidence that disproved the numerous theories about the Bilderberg group, the Rothschilds, and other powerful, secretive organizations. They do not pose the threat that many assume.

In delving into Bilderberg and the Rothschilds, however, it was discovered that there is one powerful group of movers and shakers that has the gravitas and the means to exert an enormous amount of influence on the U.S. government and other nations. It is called the Council on Foreign Relations, or CFR.

And this leads directly to the point concerning conspiracies and conspiracy theorists. Usually there is a modicum of truth tucked somewhere deeply within the sensationalism and fluff that accompanies wild, unsubstantiated charges.

Some of the theories being postulated are not only true but alarmingly so. But in order to get to that truth, one must sift through a mountain of bilge to find it.

In the 1991 book titled, “Behold A Pale Horse,” conspiracy theorist Milton William Cooper makes a number of outrageous claims that go far beyond the realm of veracity. He claims, for example, that former President Dwight D. Eisenhower attempted to negotiate a treaty with outer space aliens in order to prevent them from destroying the Earth. He believed that these outer space beings had infiltrated the government. He also believed that AIDS/HIV was part of a conspiracy to decrease the population of blacks, Hispanics, and homosexuals.

Very few thinking persons would take these outlandish theories seriously. Yet within Cooper’s nightmarish fantasies he either inadvertently or deliberately inserted a conspiracy theory that has all of the markings of literal truth. In such an instance, the conspiracy is not a theory but an actuality.

Within the pages of “Behold a Pale Horse,” Cooper charges that certain sectors of the U.S. government initiated a covert operation decades ago designed to gradually turn the population against the private ownership of firearms. In order to accomplish such a feat, the government set about on a deliberate course of action that would insure that deadly, military grade firearms would make it into the hands of dangerous criminals. This would send the crime rate skyrocketing, the result of which fearful citizens would demand gun control and gun bans.

From the book, Cooper writes,

The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the anti-gun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far it is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd Amendment.

A glaring problem is obvious in Cooper’s statement, however. No credible proof or evidence can be found that confirms the charge that the CIA is using or has used drugs and hypnosis on mental patients. And a thorough examination of the Orion project makes it clear that there is no consensus as to what, exactly, that program entails, if it does, in fact, exist. Some theorists define Orion as something totally different than Cooper’s definition.

Yet within Cooper’s theory, apart from the over-the-top allegations, is one central truth — the U.S. government has, indeed, provided military grade firearms to some of the most dangerous criminals in the world, including those who are living here among us. The Fast and Furious scandal proved beyond any doubt that such a systematic program existed and may still be at work to this day since Congressional investigations went nowhere due to stonewalling and the refusal to cooperate on the part of Senate Democrats and the White House.

Not only were 2,500 heavy duty, high capacity firearms sent across the Mexican border directly to dangerous drug cartels, but according to the Justice Department cartel drug gangs now operate in all 50 states, particularly in large cities such as Chicago, which has become the murder capital of America.

Chicago has the most stringent gun control laws in the nation, yet the violence continues to escalate. And despite the attempts of anti-gun activists such as Barack Obama and his longtime friend, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, to blame the violence on average gun owners, statistics from the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) show that most of Chicago’s “gun violence” emanates from Mexican drug gangs.

In addition, something is pushing the severely mentally impaired over the edge that was not present in American society 30 years ago. Before the 1990s one rarely heard of mass shootings at schools, churches, movie theaters, and malls.

Even without drugs and hypnosis, there are ways that unstable persons can be pushed over the edge into committing unspeakable acts of violence. Society itself is at least 80 percent of the problem. America has forsaken its religious heritage that served as a restraint on the actions of individuals. Ethics and morals have been thrown out the window. A special report on CBS’s “48 Hours,” for example, noted how the United States has become a nation of liars. Hundreds of teachers in Atlanta, for example, were caught allegedly changing scores on standardized tests in order to make their schools look better on the national grid. A school in Texas was highlighted for the fact that not only did 25% of its sophomore class cheat on a key exam but the teacher who caught them was overruled by the school board for giving them failing grades on the exam.

Cheating was rewarded.

Hollywood is also a key example of the problem. Actors, writers, directors, and producers go public with their righteous indignation concerning the fact that citizens can own guns, although they themselves glorify violence in their movies and are flanked by armed bodyguards when they venture out. The emotionally fragile are bound to be greatly influenced by what Hollywood produces, in addition to the shockingly violent video games to which the nation’s youth seem to be addicted.

But the net result is the same even if Cooper was wrong about the drugs and hypnosis. Something is leading the weakest among us to go on shooting sprees.

Each time these horrific incidents take place, a few more Americans jump aboard the gun control and gun ban train. And the gullible fall for the shameful blood dance conducted by leftwing lunatics who are always standing at the ready to blame average citizens for what a few criminals do.

How many more of these shocking bloodbaths must take place before the gun-grabbing lunatics succeed in leading the populace to demand the Second Amendment be scrapped?

When a citizenry is disarmed, history teaches us that they are sitting ducks for oppressive, tyrannical government. Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, Communist China, Castro’s Cuba, North Korea, and host of other governments proved that disarmament of the citizens was a mere precursor for the atrocities that would follow.

Those who point to Europe as an example that disproves that assertion must be reminded that not enough time has elapsed since they criminalized gun owners. Give them time. Eventually they will prove everything gun rights activists warn about.

Ever heard of Cyprus?

The outright theft of the people’s money by government is merely the beginning of woes.

If the government wants to ban stable law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt¦ you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.
