California Peace Officers: Thank the L. A. Times

October 25, 2016

The Los Angeles Times is working to disarm not just the peons, but everyone, and yes, that includes Peace Officers. In collusion with their masters they want us all to be their boot lickers. Personally, I think that it is well past the time to take these weasels out into the street, horse whip them until they are naked, then tar and feather them, and then hang them, and dump their worthless bodies into the Pacific. That goes for every lunatic politician from governor moonbat on down. Yes, that includes LEO’s that have violated their oaths.

Election 2016: What it means for life and liberty in these not so United States.

October 24, 2016

What follows is the work of Mia Lee, a long time Facebook friend.

The 2016 Election is probably the strangest and most important one of our time.  Like riding on a roller coaster at Six Flags, there have been many ups and downs, unexpected turns, and sometimes flat-out nauseating moments, and the many issues at stake are equally, if not more, a roller coaster each in itself.  From illegal immigration to the refugee crisis; the National Debt to TPP; Common Core to free college; Religious Liberties, transgender bathrooms.  The list goes on and on, but there are two issues in particular that CANNOT be overlooked, the 2nd Amendment and the Supreme Court.  Both are vital for the other’s survival and are needed for our Constitution to remain intact.

This election cycle started out with the biggest field of contender, ever.  The winnowing process was a painful one, but slowly, one by one, the playing field diminished, until only two competitors remained; Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.  Now I know some of you may be groaning and rolling your eyes right now at the thought of who is left.  Yes, I know, it has turned out to be quite the conundrum, voting for the lesser of two evils as some of you may see it.  I too have been faced with this frightful task, as “my guy” didn’t make the cut.  It’s been a back and forth, conflict of convictions, and soul-searching process.  The one thing that I keep coming back to is this, the 2nd Amendment.  History has shown us time and time again that the loss of one’s right to defend himself, family and home, has been a key factor in Tyranny. We can go as far back as the Bible and see examples of governments and rulers taking away God-given rights of self-defense as a means to control.  Once that control was taken away, it then became very easy to “exterminate” the undesirable and unruly citizens.  Under the guise of “Public Safety”, the Democrats have spread their propaganda, twisted or omitted the truth, in order to further their agenda of oppression and government control.  With the help of the MSM, they have been able to lay their groundwork and it’s just a matter of time before they attempt to change the rules on law-abiding gun owners and American citizens.  At the helm of this crusade, for the last 8 years, has been President Obama.  He has made it very clear that gun control is at the top of his list and will stop at nothing to earn that final feather in his cap.

This brings us to the elephant in the room, who are we all going to vote for.  After considering all the pros and cons, personal and moral views, one thing keeps coming back to the forefront.  The 2nd Amendment.  For without it, we will slowly lose all the other Freedoms and Liberties that are afforded to us through the Constitution of the United States.  This then brings us to our next game changer, The Supreme Court.  With the recent passing of Justice Antonin Scalia, a staunch Conservative and advocate for the 2nd Amendment, finding his replacement is even more important. The balance of The Supreme Court is at stake, and with it, the Constitution.  It is now even more important to elect a Republican candidate.  To ensure that our freedoms and Constitutional rights as Gun Owners not be vanquished under the guise of crime prevention and public safety.

I recently read an interview by Chris Cox, NRA-ILA Executive Director, with Donald Trump.  I believe that Mr. Trump is this country’s best shot at preserving our Constitution and 2nd Amendment.  We know for a fact that Hillary Clinton will only continue Obama’s gun control agenda and even more.  I’m not willing to take that chance.

I’ve included the full interview transcript below for you to read and see where Donald Trump stands on this very important issue.  Remember what is at stake in this election. I f we lose this election to Hillary Clinton, basically a third term of the Obama Administration, we will most certainly lose our 2nd amendment Rights, or Constitution, and the right to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness as we know it.

ELECTION 2016:  CHRIS COX – ONE ON ONE WITH DONALD TRUMP

This year’s race for the White House is like no other in our history. Hillary Clinton has made it clear that if elected, she will come after our firearms freedom on her very first day in office. So it’s no exaggeration to say that the Second Amendment is on the ballot this November. Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, to discuss our right to keep and bear arms and what’s at stake in this election for America’s gun owners.

Chris Cox: Mr. Trump, I’d like to begin with an issue of concern to many gun owners. In your 2000 book, “The America We Deserve,” you stated that while you oppose gun control, you support the federal ban on semi-automatic firearms — the so-called “assault weapons” ban — and also support a longer waiting period to purchase a firearm. During this election, however, you’ve repeatedly pointed out you oppose gun and magazine bans and only support background checks that are instant, accurate and fair. Would you say your position has evolved on these issues?

DJT: Absolutely. Over the past 15 years I’ve learned a great deal about how we can protect the good people of this country from those who mean to do us harm. Gun control is not the answer — protecting the rights of law-abiding citizens is the answer. Furthermore, gun bans don’t work. Studies were done after the 1994 “assault weapons” ban expired. They clearly showed that the ban didn’t protect anyone, didn’t reduce crime. It just made it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves with the firearm of their choice. Like with all things, I believe in what works, and gun bans don’t work.

They clearly showed that the ban didn’t protect anyone, didn’t reduce crime. It just made it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves with the firearm of their choice. Like with all things, I believe in what works, and gun bans don’t work.

I have two sons who don’t just believe in the Second Amendment, they live it. They hunt, target shoot, shoot competitively and carry firearms for personal protection. They’re NRA members and so am I. I also have a concealed-carry permit. Our commitment to the Second Amendment is unshakable.

Chris Cox: As you know, the future of our firearms freedom hangs in the balance with the passing of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia — the author of the Heller decision — which held that the Constitution guarantees the individual right to keep and bear arms. I have a couple of questions related to the Supreme Court, but first, do you agree that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental, individual right to own and use firearms for lawful purposes?f

DJT: Without question. Unlike Hillary Clinton, I believe the Second Amendment protects an individual right and the D.C. gun ban overturned in Heller is exactly the kind of law the Second Amendment was meant to prohibit. Let me be clear about this — Heller wasn’t about a “reasonable restriction” as Hillary tries to argue — the D.C. law banned guns in the home As a result, D.C. residents were completely defenseless against violent criminals breaking into their homes. Hillary believes that the Supreme Court was wrong in the Heller decision, which she has said many times. She will appoint judges who will effectively abolish the Second Amendment — that’s the stake in this election.

Chris Cox: In addition to the Scalia vacancy, many suggest the next president could nominate three or even more additional justices to the Supreme Court. Will the Second Amendment and the Heller decision play a role in who you decide to nominate to the Supreme Court?

DJT: One hundred percent. I will appoint judges who will preserve our Second Amendment-protected rights — Hillary Clinton will appoint judges who will eliminate them.Chris Cox: There are a number of laws and regulations that gun control groups have been pushing for years. I’d like to discuss a few of them to get your views. First, do you support so-called “universal” background checks?

DJT: There can never be a so-called “universal” background check, because criminals obviously ignore gun laws. That’s what makes them criminals. The research shows that they find someone with a clean record — a “straw purchaser” — to get a gun for them. Or they get a gun from the black market. Or they steal it. We also know that background checks haven’t stopped the mass shooters we’ve seen. In each case, they either passed a federal background check or stole the guns they used.

Under current law, purchasing a firearm from a dealer requires a background check, whether in a store, at a gun show or anywhere else — but some want to take that a step further so that even if a firearm is transferred from a father to a son as a gift or between lifelong friends on a hunting trip, the federal government has to intervene and approve the transfer in advance. That burdens law-abiding citizens but doesn’t impact criminals. I don’t support that.

Chris Cox: What about gun owner licensing and/or registration?

DJT: I don’t support restricting the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens by creating a national government registry. One thing that gun control supporters never point out is that gun control costs us lives every day. Every time a law-abiding citizen has their right to defend themselves taken away, they are put at risk. That terrible tragedy in New Jersey — Carol Bowne, who was killed in her own driveway while waiting for a gun permit — is a tragic example of how gun control costs lives.

But the American people get it. Poll after poll shows a majority of Americans continue to be opposed to invasive restrictions on their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. They believe, as I do, that all of us have the right to defend ourselves and that the government should not be in the business of taking that right away, any more than we would let them regulate and restrict any of our other core freedoms out of existence.

Chris Cox: After the recent tragedy in Orlando, Fla., President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and their allies tried to distract attention away from their failed terrorism policies by calling for more gun control. In addition to calling for a new ban on semi-automatic rifles and for expanded background checks, they pushed for a proposal to ban people on secret government lists from purchasing firearms. What’s your position on that issue?

DJT: Terrorists should not be able to buy guns, legally or illegally. Period. We must make sure that doesn’t happen, and we all agree on that goal. At the same time, we have to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans. These are not mutually exclusive ideas — we can do both. Unfortunately, Obama and Hillary will do anything to distract attention away from their failure to stop the spread of ISIS and defeat terrorism. They also don’t want to talk about the threat, not only of terrorists with guns,

but terrorists with explosives — like at the Boston marathon bombing — and terrorists with trucks — like in Nice, France — or terrorists with any other means of attacking our people. They want to disarm Americans but continue policies that allow terrorists into our country.

Chris Cox: President Obama has made a habit out of using his “phone and pen” to implement gun control through executive orders, bypassing Congress and the will of the people to advance his anti-gun agenda. All presidents have used executive orders at some level, but none have gone to the lengths that Obama has on gun control. Do you have any plans with respect to executive orders on guns if you win the election?

DJT: First, I will undo President Obama’s executive orders on guns. Second, I will look for ways to restore the Second-Amendment-protected rights of law-abiding citizens, by undo ing restrictions put in place by the Obama administration’s federal agencies and pursuing avenues that protect Americans constitutional rights in ways that make us all safer.

Chris Cox: You came out early in the primaries with a position paper on the Second Amendment, including your support for Project Exile — enforcing current gun laws against criminals with mandatory jail time. Is that something you’ll push for if elected president?

DJT: I think the major failure of gun control supporters is the constant push for new gun laws instead of focusing our efforts on prosecuting violent criminals. Federal prosecutions under Obama have plummeted, and all he does is ask for more gun control. It makes no sense. Project Exile was a program that had great success because it’s simple — if you’re a felon caught with a gun or committing another crime with a gun, there’s a mandatory sentence of at least five years waiting for you. And those cases are prosecuted in federal court. When you see violent crime exploding in a place like Chicago, it’s ridiculous that they aren’t taking those criminals off the streets with the laws already in place. I’ll make that a priority in a Trump administration. My Justice Department will focus on prosecuting violent criminals. We will make it happen.

Chris Cox: Is there anything else you want our readers to know about this election?

DJT: This election means everything for the future of our country. Not just gun rights, but also many other issues. The Supreme Court will be shaped for a generation by the next president. Our standing in the world will be shaped — at a critical and dangerous time — by the next president. And the Second Amendment itself hangs in the balance with who we elect as the next president. Your freedoms are hanging by a fraying thread. Every freedom-loving American must vote, and they need to get their friends to vote. We can’t let the freedom secured by those in uniform be surrendered at the ballot box. I promise your readers, and all of America’s law-abiding gun owners, that when I win the White House with your votes, our Second Amendment rights will remain protected and I will do all in my power to advance the cause of freedom.

More Big Government oppression and the response to it.

September 8, 2016

From Brownell’s;

The fight to curb overreaching regulation by the Obama administration is not over and it certainly has not disappeared from our radar. In fact, we have been in regular contact with our Federal legislators, the NSSF and the NRA.

We are happy to report that our collective efforts are drawing the attention of prominent U.S. Senators. Just yesterday (9/6/2016), our very own Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) joined Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR), Steve Daines (R-MT), and James Inhofe (R-OK) in penning a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry denouncing the DDTC’s directive and demanding that they reconsider this issue. A news article about the letter can be found here.

We vow to keep the pressure on until changes are made. That said, the industry still needs your help! Below is the latest call to action issued by the NSSF. It includes verbiage to help you articulate your point. Feel free to copy and paste if you’re using email to communicate with your legislators.

NSSF Call to Action

Call your U.S. Representative at 202-225-3121 and U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell Congress to denounce the DDTC’s action and demand reconsideration.

Tell Congress to transfer the export licensing of commercial and sporting firearms and ammunition products from the State Department to the Department of Commerce. The Commerce Department which already licenses the export of shotguns and shot shells does not require manufacturers and gunsmiths to register and pay an outrageous $2,250 annual fee.

The Obama administration was supposed to transfer export licensing of guns and ammunition to Commerce as part of its overall “Export Control Reform” initiative but because of its anti-gun agenda, they have refused to move our products. The administration’s own ECR Tracker shows how our products (Categories I – III) have been singled out. Not only has the Obama administration refused to transfer export licensing to the Commerce Department, they now want gunsmiths to pay an annual $2,250 registration fee for simply mounting new sights to improve accuracy on a hunting rifle!

CALL TODAY TO HELP THIS IMPORTANT CAUSE!

We appreciate your help and, as always, we stand united with you.

The Senate does the right thing, and Democrats can’t figure that out!

June 21, 2016

The Senate hammered proposed gun control laws, and Democrats simply cannot figure out that disarming Americans in the face of extreme danger isn’t the correct thing to do.

Listening to the news, and reading social media brings something to mind. Specifically, a bumper sticker that we got into trouble for placing on the ceiling of the ambulance. “Are you stoned, or just stupid?” Let’s go through the proposals.

On Terrorists: Who gets to choose who is a “terrorist?” Would that be the very same people that called many non leftest WordPress Bloggers “terrorists?” Along with others that simply disagree with these elitists..?

Background test expansion: Anyone with a brain knows that background tests simply do not work. They never have, and never will. A black market is already thriving in this nation for weapons that the average person does not, or can’t get access too. This simple fact of life also blows away the RINO proposal of a waiting period that allows a challenge for denial of a purchase.

Implementing even more restrictions on the rights and liberties of Americans will be met with the same success that our fabulous victory that The War on Drugs has racked up.

On that note? Have those that desire Americans to be helpless in the face of grave danger simply stoned from inhaling Unicorn Farts, or are they in fact guilty of treason? Or both..?

Make Americans helpless?

June 16, 2016

I need you to call your Senators right away and urge them to OPPOSE all the gun control legislation that may be voted on as early as today. 

You can reach your two Senators at 202-224-3121.

Please call the Capitol Switchboard at that above number and then ask to speak to your two Senators.

Making Americans helpless is not the proper answer for responding to terrorism. Any other response is treason, no excuses…

Words of wisdom from and internet friend

June 9, 2016

Here is a guest post from my wonderful friend Tex Reynolds, as fine a writer as you’re likely to find, a true Patriot and a staunch Conservative. 

Huffington Post writer defends riots at Trump rallies as ‘violent resistence’ (sic)

Is this “free speech”? There is a difference between being able to speak out on one’s beliefs and using violence to quash the rights of others.

According to Wikipedia:
The right to freedom of expression is recognized as a human right under article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and recognized in international human rights law in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Article 19 of the ICCPR states that “everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference” and “everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice”. Article 19 additionally states that the exercise of these rights carries “special duties and responsibilities” and may “therefore be subject to certain restrictions” when necessary “[f]or respect of the rights or reputation of others” or “[f]or the protection of national security or of public order (order public), or of public health or morals”.

In the past seven years we have seen progressives use (abuse) semantics and twist the actual definitions of words, often using a word while meaning that word’s antonym. They use honesty meaning prevarication; transparency meaning secrecy; openness meaning obfuscation; work meaning golfing, compromise meaning capitulation; freedom meaning subservience; respect meaning disdain; and unity means division; etc. They accuse others of doing of acts that they, themselves are actually guilty.

Supposed journalists, those who should have a basic working knowledge and vocabulary ignore what it is occurring, instead using their bully pulpits slathering praise on those who would destroy America.

For decades we have witnessed the planned moral decline of this Nation.

We have allowed liberals to dominate our education system and dumb down the populace. We have allowed the eco-freaks to preserve our natural resources so that they now can be stolen by foreign entities. We have watched as multinational agro companies decimated our family farms so they could control food supplies and use those food supplies as weapons of power. We have watched politicians compromise principles and allow the watering down of our Constitution. We have watched a legal system that favors the rich, gives more rights to the criminals and ignores the victims.

We have watched faux preachers establish their private earthly kingdoms while ignoring the Heavenly Kingdom. We have watched our Country become a world joke and now we watch as the anarchists, the communists, the socials and provocateurs use violence to silence us.

Now there are people who are willing to stand up and resist the further destruction of our Nation, are you one of them? This country was founded on religious principles but designed NOT to be a theocracy. Stand up for America

About the idiot in chief and transgender bathrooms

May 15, 2016

There is a lot of concern about this bathroom controversy, and rightly so. The POTUS really stepped on his clit with this one, and that is putting it mildly.

Actual transgenders have been using the bathrooms of there sex reassignment for years, and nobody cared. Why? Because they were already “switched” for lack of a better term.

What concerns most of us are the perverts that will be pretending to be a transgender in order to further their twisted wants and desires…

The Department of Justice can do what they want, so can our idiot in chief. So can the parents etcetera of those affected.

This is how. Say, some lunatic molests your son in the bathroom. You, being a decent parent, shoot the jerk. You go to jail for whatever charges the obamanites can dream up. Jury Trial, no deals… We the people, in front of God and everybody find you not guilty, and the Jury Foreman rips the prosecutor a new anus…

Done deal!

Supreme Court: Second Amendment protects “all bearable arms” – HUGE Victory for Gun Owners, Again!

March 23, 2016

We have been saying this for years. It would appear that others think along the very same lines!

Full Story

She is so psychologically dysfunctional that she even wants police officers listed on the gun owner registry.

January 16, 2016

Seriously, there are people in this world so warped in their thinking that they can compare those in the freedom and liberty movement to the lowest of perverts. Go here to read about this…

Should time permit I think that I will start a new page, and play out the stereotypes that are tossed around. Now, that would be an interesting play on the psychology that makes up those of The Tyranny of the Majority that is today’s curse of Political Correctness.

Hey Buffalo Bill…

January 5, 2016

Buffalo Bill Cody is probably turning over in his grave!

Tomorrow (Jan 6) in Cody WY the school board is having what they call a ‘special meeting’ that includes both school board members and state legislators about…guns in schools.

This meeting is so ‘special’ – that they decided the meeting shouldn’t be advertised to the public.

The truth is, they don’t want you to know!

You see, Park county’s anti-gun school superintendent Ray Schulte is working hard to ensure law abiding Citizens like YOU are NEVER allowed to exercise the God-given right to self defense.

And just what is Schulte pushing?

He is in support of legislation strikingly similar to Senator Hank Coe’s substitute bill that effectively derailed the repeal of gun free zones in Wyoming.

And this isn’t the first time superintendent Schulte has been on the wrong side of your right to keep and bear arms. The more that you see him in action, the more you realize he is aligned with Joe Biden, the author of gun free zone legislation.

Here’s the low down…

Schulte in his capacity as superintendent of schools in Torrington Wy —-> testified against repealing gun free zones in a Wyoming Senate committee in 2012.

It was at this moment we discovered that superintendent Schulte doesn’t even trust the citizens who submit to a full background check.

Schulte stated in open committee, “I spoke with our police chief and he told me there over two thousand permit holders right here in out district, can you imagine all of them being in the school at the same time?”

It was shortly after, that the Goshen School board had enough of Schulte…

In June of 2012 the school board voted against Schulte and one board member even stated publicly that, “the superintendent wasn’t doing a good job” and “his salary was too high.”

The Torrington headline actually read, “District Superintendent Ray Schulte does not have the full support of the Goshen County School Board.”

Sadly by the following year, the folks in Cody took him in as their new school superintendent, at an even higher salary of $150,000 a year.

It should be noted that instead of inviting the public to a meeting where the only agenda is about guns, Schulte invited several neighboring district board members – Now you know why it’s called a “special meeting.”

Please contact the following Park county school board members and let them know you are on to their scheme.
