Congress Will Vote On Concealed Carry Reciprocity Bill

House will vote on concealed carry reciprocity bill

Pres. Trump’s complex relationship with guns

Washington (CNN)The House will vote Wednesday on a bill that would let gun owners with permits to carry concealed weapons travel to other states with their concealed firearms.

The bill is a top priority of the National Rifle Association, and since leaving committee it has been combined with an additional measure that is designed to update the federal background check system after holes were exposed by November’s mass shooting at a church in Texas.
The move to merge the two pieces of legislation makes it a difficult vote for Democrats.
Second Amendment advocates maintain that gun owners should not lose their right to bear arms as they travel across state lines, and current laws that vary in different states could mean that licensed owners might unintentionally violate the law. Under the proposed law, gun owners would be required to abide by the local and state regulations in place for concealed weapons.
The part of the legislation that aims to update background checks through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, held bipartisan support when it was being considered by the House Judiciary Committee, after more than 20 people were killed at the church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

The gunman in that shooting was a former member of the Air Force, and had been imprisoned for domestic abuse. This information hadn’t been relayed by the Air Force to the NICS, which should have prevented him from buying the guns he used in the crime.

California Democrats: If They Can’t Steal Your Guns, They Won’t Let Citizens Have Ammo

(THIS ARTICLE IS COURTESY OF ABC NEWS)

Court Revives Lawsuit Against California Bullet Stamping Law

The ruling by the 5th District Court of Appeals in Fresno overturned a lower court ruling rejecting a lawsuit challenging the law by two firearms trade associations, the National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute. The appeals court sent the case back down for further consideration.

Supporters of the law signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2007 touted it as the first such law to go into effect in the nation and said it would help law enforcement solve gun crimes by allowing them to link bullet casings to guns. The law requires new handgun models to have a microscopic array of characters in two spots that identify the gun’s make, model, and serial number and that are transferred by imprinting on each cartridge case when the gun is fired.

Gun rights groups say it is not possible to “microstamp” two areas of a gun. Only the tip of the firing pin can be microstamped, and current technology doesn’t allow the stamp to reliably, consistently and legibly imprint on the cartridge primer from that part of the gun, they said.

“We are pleased by today’s ruling because it means we will now be able to prove in court that this ill-considered law must be enjoined because it is literally impossible to comply with its requirements, and the law never requires the impossible,” Lawrence Keane, senior vice president and general counsel for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, said in a statement.

A call to the state attorney general’s office for comment was not immediately returned.

The law was supposed to take effect in 2010, but was delayed because of patents on the technology, including at least one that had been bought up by a gun rights group to delay the law’s implementation.

It doesn’t impact guns already on the state’s official firearm roster. Only new or modified semi-automatic handguns sold in California must be equipped with the technology.

Keane said in an email that no new models of pistols have been introduced in California since the law took effect.

Honest, Truthful American History

 

On old wooden leaky boats smaller than a rich mans toys

We all climbed in and to this new world we set our sails

There’s some that have joined us who are looking for gold and fame

Most came for the hope of land that they could till in their own name

 

Roanoke Island, Jamestown on the river off the Chesapeake Bay

To Plymouth by the Rock these old creaky boats found their way

Pushed, pulled and chased yet most whites came by their own will

Many really had no choice, poverty and the laws chased them away

 

This strange new world with all this lumber and open land to claim

An extension of Heaven to all white males this land lays in wait

Wait, who are these strange red faces, with arrows pointed our way

Indians, so-called by Captain Columbus and his misfit crews I think

 

America, with all these wide open spaces surely I can make my way

White male land owners ordained, we shall be from sea to shining sea

These Indians don’t matter there just good excuse to use our black powder

What our white mans diseases don’t wipe out we will turn into our slaves

 

America, Valhalla to all white males who have the guts, guns and gold to stay

Kill all the Indian Braves then turn all who are left breathing into our slaves

The Chinese aren’t white so we can use them like dogs to lay our steel highways

Then these Black Devils from Africa, they are only good for work, whips and chains

 

Why should we be forced to stop at our borders whether by land or by the seas

Canada to our north settled by the French so of course we have every right to invade

To our south we burst through their front door to Mexico City we rode without shame

Spanish, Mexicans and them damn Indians, if we killed them all who would care anyway

 

Our gold bought Alaska from those Russians so damn it, no war, we didn’t get to play

Then of course there were those primitive Hawaiians, not knowing what we had in store

With big guns and ships we invaded their Islands, killed half the men, imprisoned their Queen

Now their land is our land as we buried our flag in their sand, you know we always want more

 

Is it through ego or arrogance that why some of us don’t understand the outside world

Why do some roll their eyes and snicker when we say that peace and human rights are our stay

America, I do still believe that she is the best nation to ever give her people a somewhat honest chance

So don’t get angry when others see us different, just look at King George W., Obama and Guantanamo Bay.

 

 

 

 

The Shooting Of Unarmed People Is Murder Period: This Includes Police Shootings

 

This morning in the Cleveland Ohio news we are being told that six Police Officers have been fired, one other retired early, and another six Officers have been suspended for anywhere from 21 to 30 days for murdering two people. Back in November of 2012 in the city of Cleveland an old Chevy Malibu backfired near a police station. One of the Officers that was outside thought it sounded like a gun shot so he and many of his buddies took off after a car that they thought the shot had come from. To make a long story short they were wrong, there was no gun shot and the two people in the car (one man, one woman) had no firearms at all. This mornings we are told that approximately  100 Police cars chased this couple for about 20 miles into another jurisdiction where they were able to get the car stopped (bullets stopped it). Once the Officers got the car stopped Officers shot through the windshield 137 rounds, 24 struck and killed the man, 23 struck and killed the woman. Unless you see a person banishing a firearm and that firearm is being pointed at you then you (any Cop anywhere) have no right to ever shoot to kill anyone, if you do, it is murder! Cops must be treated with the same laws they use to make their decisions. You know very well that all those bullets were taken out of these two people’s corpses and that they were matched up against the different Officers weapons. The Officers who started this chase and the Officers whom fired and hit these two innocent unarmed people must be tried for first degree murder. Here in America we have to many macho mental midget’s with a badge and a gun and that isn’t even counting all the cowards with a badge and a gun and there are many, many, many of these felons wearing blue and the American people know it, this is why you are not at all trusted. Murder is murder, no matter what your job description is. You know how we are told that if we are having trouble while we are out and about that we are supposed to find a Cop or to drive to the nearest Police Station? What was this couple suppose to do when it is the Cops whom are chasing and shooting at you, do you stop and make it an easy target for them?

 

If Police Departments in  America want the vast majority of the public to be on their side then the profession MUST clean up its own act. There are two things that would be very helpful in this regard. 1) Officers must be held totally accountable for their actions, they are supposed to be public servants, not executioners. 2) Officers need to always be friendly whenever possible and they must act like grownups, not mouthy arrogant punks with a gun. So I ask you Officers, please perform your duties with honor, then you will see many more of us civilians whom want very badly to support you. For these things to happen all Policing Agencies personnel must perform their duties honorably and they MUST arrest their fellow Officers when they break the same laws you arrest the people for. Integrity of the Law, learn what it is, and then follow it. That is if you ever want the public to be on your side, right now anytime you ever meet an Officer for any reason the public knows that their life hangs in the balance. It is up to all Policing Agencies to correct their own flaws, no one else can do it for you.

Unarmed America Equals Open Door To Jihadist; Doesn’t It?

 

I have been blessed that in my lifetime I have never had to shoot anyone. I have never know anyone that I honestly wished to be dead while they were still alive. Yet, should the situation ever arise that I deemed it necessary to pull the trigger on someone could I pull it? I know my answer to myself, yet I will keep that knowledge to myself. It is not the weapons fault if it has an immature egomaniac pulling the trigger! Exactly why the people must be able to be armed against such monsters. You have heard some of the off-color stupid jokes about people who were ignorant enough to only bring a knife to a gun fight haven’t you? America, or any other country on the globe is filled with good honest people whether they believe in the same Deity as yourself, or not. All people deserve to be able to be safe behind their own doors. No person on Earth has ‘the right, or any right’ to be the first aggressor against another person yet we all know some people just don’t give a damn about you having any rights. They just want you dead so they can take your bounty. The American people (not so much the folks in D.C., NYC, or Hollywood) understand the danger we are all in if we are not allowed to protect ourselves. Think about all the poor and innocent people in Mexico who have been caught up in the path of gangsters bullets? A bullet fired by a local thug or a trained Jihadist, will still kill you either way. It is much easier to be ‘big and bad’ once your target is already in a helpless position. We all know these macho men, the wife beaters and the child molesters. Can you think of these type of individuals and honestly believe that there is no such thing as evil in our world? Do you want any of them coming through your windows or doors with  no way to stop them?

 

Think about being in the military of your country and you are assigned to guard and protect a building full of tanks. If it were back in the days when open war on your country had not been declared, in training you could have guarded the shack with a baseball bat. But this is not the good old days of our bygone youth, today we are all in the real dispersion of evil that is being waged on all of humanity. Now imagine yourself having to guard that shack full of tanks in an active war zone, without any ammo for your weapons. Now, how would that make you feel? Is that what you call one of those ‘o hell no’ moments? You want to make your “guard” position even worse? Are you thinking, how could it get any worse? How about, the enemy that has been lying in wait to get a chance to kill you has just found out that you don’t have any ammo so you have no way to protect yourself nor to harm your killer? Now how do you feel about your position for a long and healthy life? Would it make you even madder if you found out that it was your commanding officers who gave your murders the information that you had no ammo, no real way to protect yourself, or anyone else that might be in that shack that you have been trying to protect?

 

This past week we have seen another mass shooting this time in California leaving fourteen people dead and seventeen wounded. The same sad faces talk their stupidity about how American citizens should not be allowed to possess a firearm in their homes, vehicles, or on their persons as this would make for a safer America. Yet if you pay attention to the stats you find that Americans are taking more gun classes than ever and gun sales are up, this flies in the face of what the Democratic-left thinks should be happening. These folks don’t seem to get the fact that the American people want to be able to defend themselves if someone comes busting through their door tonight. Recent world events show the people who there is no way that you can always depend on someone else to come save you (like say, a police officer) when/if you and your family are attacked. Those fourteen murdered people in California was a wake up call to many that this Islamic murdering Demonic trash is on every continent and can reach into any village that they wish to. So, when the Devil comes face to face with you and your family whether you’re at Wal-Mart, McDonald’s, your Church or even your home, what are you going to do about it? People all have to decide what they are going to do as individuals, cower down and die like mice or at least give yourself and your family a fighting chance against the Jihadist who just burst into your world.

Jerry Falwell Jr: Say One Thing Smart Then One Thing Stupid?

 

I always insist that I be honest with everyone when I put my thoughts into print as I do not wish to mislead anyone. I am a person who though a Christian at heart I was never a fan of Mr Jerry Falwell Sr because of several of his business actions in his local area. I don’t believe that the preacher should ever be ‘the show’ and before two days ago, I didn’t even know that Mr Falwell Sr had any Juniors. Now, Junior being Seniors son, he didn’t surprise me about the gun situation part of his recent speech but it did disappoint as a Christian that mind-set of ‘getting them Muslims’. Junior needs to remember that God Himself said that He hates the sin but He loves the sinner. The sinner, that is me and it is you Junior as well as those who are not believers of and in Jesus as The Christ. Yes this does include all people of the world, including ‘them Muslims’, but it includes all Christians who have a hate filled heart toward anyone as well. This is why we as Christians are supposed to go out into our world and try to convert everyone to the love of Christ Jesus. All ‘them Muslims’ have Souls just like all ‘them Jews’, they are all potential brothers and sisters in Christ, we can not love and accept them if we only hate them. Islam teaches that the Christian God is not God, that we don’t worship the true God yet when the same statement is reversed with Christianity saying that Allah is not a God, the American media gets their panties in a wad.

 

Mr Falwell Jr did say some intelligent things about gun control and licensing for concealed weapons. On this I once again have a torque with the too far to the right media here in America on gun issues. NBC News was quite negative about Mr Falwell Jr’s idea to offer free concealed weapons permit classes there at Liberty College in Virginia. How often do you hear of a terrorist walking into a police department and start shooting at people? How often do you hear of a piece of garbage walking into a school or a business and start shooting at all the unarmed people? If I was a person who wanted to come into someones home to rob and or kill them I would much prefer you be unarmed because by the time the police can get there, you’re already dead and I am gone. President Obama and those folks who think like him on gun control would put every community in America at the greatest possible risk to local and foreign-born Jihadist. If you are in the need to rob a store for its cash how comfortable are you walking into a store with any customers in it knowing that when you pull your gun out to rob folks that one or all of them might pull out their own gun and shoot you down like a rabid dog, how likely are you to be a long-term thief? I am a believer in people being able to be allowed to defend themselves if they are attacked, not to be the attacker, self-defense yes. Make no mistake about it, there are huge differences in what Christian Scriptures teach which is to try to love and to convert were in Islam they are taught to kill everyone who will not bow down and kiss Allah’s feet at least five times a day. One is love, one is hate, they have very little in common and it is that core issue, one is based on love and the other is based on hate and submission. So, in my honest opinion Mr Falwell Jr got one correct, one failure. Mr Falwell, that is a grade of 50%, that is a failing grade for a Christian Administrator Sir.

What Does The American Public Think They Need Guns For?

 

Why should any citizen in any country think that they need to have a gun in their home or that it should be legal for them to carry one on them? Shouldn’t only the police departments, government agents and the military be the only ones to carry a firearm? Why should you or I as Joe Q Public ever have a need to have one of those things in our hands, can’t we just trust the different government policing departments to keep us all safe? Shouldn’t President Obama by Presidential Proclamation be able to abolish this Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that gun owners keep referring to?

 

There is something that I would like you to think about for a moment please. Have you ever studied European history at all? Those of us who have know that most of the people who wrote our Nations laws like the Constitution and The Bill of Rights descended from European countries in their recent past. Europe was a place where the average person could not own any firearms for any reason, if you got caught with one you most likely would be swinging from a rope before the sun went down. Only the governments, Royalty, and the Lords could have such things. Why do you think the reason was? Folks it is really simple, if the people had no arms then the government could do what ever they wanted to do to the people with no fear of physical repercussions. This way only the rich and powerful could and would have everything and the people, they kept them in starvation. Why do you think so many people wanted to get the heck out of Europe that they would take their families across an ocean with nothing but the clothes on their backs and or what they could carry on their backs? When you have no power, no authority, and no way to defend your selves you can either live in rags and eat slop or you can (if you are even allowed to) leave your situation and try to find a better system to live in somewhere else and that is what thousands did when they left Europe to come to ‘the new world’. Obviously they were hoping it would be a new world where they could have some freedom from the governments that oppressed them so when they decided to create a new country, a new government, they made sure it didn’t resemble what they had left in Europe.

 

The founders of the United States back in 1776 decided to make this a free country, free from government oppression of the people by the future governments of this land. They were smart enough to know that if the people had no way to protect themselves if future governors broke the laws of the land and decided to oppress the people the way Europe had done then the people had to have a way to over through that sitting Government. You see the fore fathers of this country were worried about the people loosing all their rights, and their lives to an evil crooked government. If you can not vote crooked people out then you needed to have the right and ability to forcefully remove such persons. Folks, you can’t do that if you can’t physically do anything to these crooked government officials. These men knew that if the people could arm themselves then they would have a chance of not being massacred. This was also a warning to those in power that if they were crooked that anyone could put a little gray pill into their brain ending their tyranny at any time. This was to hopefully help keep future politicians in line with obeying the country’s Constitution which was meant for the purpose of keeping this country a free country. This they knew would not happen if the people could not protect themselves not just from the government but also the ability to protect themselves from really bad people, rich or poor.

 

Most of the American people know that Mr Obama and like-minded people want stricter gun laws here in this country and since Mr Obama has not had the results he has been wanting in this area he has chosen to go after the ammo needed to make the firearms function. I personally am very much a non-violent type of person, I have never in my life ever shot anyone and I hope that I never will have to but I realize that possibility does exist. Why would such a possibility ever ‘need’ to happen? I will protect my family at all costs if the situation ever became necessary. Unless you are an idiot or you have been living in a cave on a secluded island with no radio or TV reception then you know that there are many thousands if not millions of people in this country that have guns for the sole purpose of robbing and murdering other people. These people who I am speaking of are the ones that can not buy any firearms legally, but they have them anyway. Yet our president and those like him would have it to where the law-abiding citizen can never buy one legally. There are many gun laws in this nation, we do not need very many more. We do need to close down the loopholes like exist at gun shows all across the nation where anyone can buy any firearm they so choose, all you must have is the cash, no receipts, no records.

 

President Obama as an adult lived/lives in the south side of Chicago Illinois. Illinois has the most restrictive gun laws you are likely to find here in America yet Chicago has some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the country because Chicago is awash in firearms, illegal ones. Look at the situation in Mexico where only the drug lords seems to have weapons. If you are just an average citizen you can not own a gun legally, so what happens if a bad person who has a gun comes into your home? You are dead and so is all your family, or, if you are lucky they are only there to rob you of everything that you have ever worked to obtain. These bad people know very well that unless they are breaking into a drug cartel employees house that the residence has no way to stop you from doing whatever you want to the people inside. They decide they want to rape your mother, your wife, your kids, that all you have to do is shoot anyone who resist you, it isn’t like they can shoot back at you.

 

Here in America all people everywhere are more in need of multiple firearms now than they have ever been in the country’s history. We the people have the right to protect ourselves and our families from crooked cops and crooked politicians who protect and direct them just like we have the right to protect ourselves from the ‘common’ criminals off the streets who break into our homes or assault us on the streets or in stores etc. Chicago is a perfect example of why it is a bad idea to restrict the average citizen from being able to protect themselves. These folks who live in Chicago especially there on the south side where gangs run wild are at these gangs mercy because very few law-abiding citizens are able to purchase a gun to protect themselves with. I lived in the state of Texas for about 16 years, when I first moved down there in 1981 there were several times where a person walked into a place like a MC Donald’s restaurant and opened fire on the people inside each time killing many people who were stuck like ducks on a pond for the shooters. After several of these massacres had happened the State made a new law, one where people could (with a permit issued by the state) carry a concealed firearm. After this law was passed there have been no such attacks on innocent people in restaurants again. Folks the reason is simple, when these hate filled people decide they are going to go shoot up a place have you ever noticed they don’t go to places where they see police cars parked outside? These people want to go shoot unarmed people, they don’t want to be getting shot themselves. If you are going to do such a crime now they are aware that anyone or everyone in the building may have a gun and that you will probably get shot down yourself. These people are mostly just cowards, they want cheep fame, not a bullet.

 

In closing I want to bring up one other very important reason why all people need to be able to have firearms at home and on their person. This is because the whole world is now at the most dangerous position the world has ever been in. This is because of Islamic fundamentalist who are in every country on the globe and no one anywhere will ever be safe again no matter where they are, home, shopping, church, synagogue, a wedding or even at a funeral. Life would be great if there were no firearms in the hands of hate filled people anywhere, but that is not reality. People like our President can bury their heads in the sand and act as though evil does not exist but in truth when anything does happen they are leaving their butts sticking up in the air with a bulls-eye glued to it. I am not willing to leave my family and loved ones as fodder for religious idiots, dirty cops, or and out of control government who has no interest in protecting its citizens, only in taking from them, are you willing to put your family at risk like that? If you are, God love you, but you are an idiot when it comes to your own safety and the safety of your loved ones.

Gun Rights Were Designed To Protect The People From Their Government

 

The Europe that our fore fathers left back in the 15, 16 and 17 hundreds was a landscape of tyranny put upon the people of the lands by their governments. Back in those days the people were not allowed to have any fire arms. Only the Royals, Feudal Lords and the Armies were allowed to have any fire power, not the people. So, anytime you had a mad man or woman who was your Landlord or the current Prince, Duke, King or Queen (evil women do exist you know) the people had no way to fight back against their aggression. When the State has all of the power that means that the people have none. If you lived in a country like England, France or Spain and you have a (Lord) who wished to take your land, your daughters, your sons, there was little you could do. You have probably heard the term bringing a knife to a gun fight, that is about how much chance the people had when those with power over them decided to rape, murder or steal from them.  Then there is the issue of cases like Ruby Ridge Idaho in 1992 when federal agents from among other “policing agencies” like the FBI  who murdered a 12 year old boy by shooting him in the back and his unarmed mother in the face killing her. If the family had not had fire arms, they would have all been murdered, and yes that does mean all the children also.

 

Federal agents were ordered there with the order given to “if it is breathing, kill it”. This is the way to make sure that there is no other side of a story getting told, simply kill everyone. The man who was at the center of this was supposed to be a white supremacist who had contacts within a like-minded group of people. This man was told to sell an illegally altered shotgun to this group, this would then give the government the “reason” to raid this group of people. The man in question said no, the government’s response was a directive to the FBI man in charge to “if it breathes, kill it”. These illegal acts upon American citizens was directed under a Republican administration (George H.W. Bush). Just a year later in Waco TX under a Democratic administration (Bill Clinton) there was another case of the American “policing agencies” gone insane. There the American government murdered over a hundred men, women, and children. After these two horrible events nothing happened to the ones who gave the orders to murder these innocent people or to the ones who murdered them. With both of these cases the very top, and I do mean the very top of the government agencies should have been prosecuted for mass murder, possibly even to the point of both presidential administrations (both Presidents) being removed from office, nothing happened to any of them. Just how much do you personally trust that all levels of the governments around you are honest?

 

Our fore fathers had enough sense to know that the only way to have freedom was if the people had a way to protect themselves from internal and external aggression. No matter how much fire power a government has the human leaders of the government know that they themselves can be brought down by a little gray pill. If those in power know that the people have no power to remove them from office as it would be if say only two political parties were allowed to share all the power between themselves and the people had no munitions to end their reigns of terror the people become nothing but slaves and cannon fodder to those in power. There are many reasons to keep fire arms in your home and one of those is self-protection from intruders who wish you and/or your family harm. No, this does not necessarily mean that all government employees are out to kill and steal from you but it is a means to try to keep you and your loved ones alive if crooked politicians or police departments do decide it is your day to die.

 

Guns are also a means to put food on your families table and or to rid your personal property of animals that you don’t want on your property. Just a few years back a rancher in Montana shot and killed a charging grizzly bear on his own property the result was that the feds fined him $2,000 for doing that. I guess the alternative would have been for the rancher to have stuck his head between his legs and kissed his behind goodbye. You or I as humans are not ever going to out run one so I guess that rancher should have volunteered to be bear poop. You know that is what the politicians would have done if it had been themselves out in that field with that bear, right? There are many predators in this old world, some on two legs, some on four.

 

There is also another reason that We The People were to be armed citizens, it is called invasions from nations or factions of people, lets say a religious culture who want to enslave or wipe out a town, city or even the whole country. If our government is really our government then they have nothing to fear from the citizens as the citizens will use their weapons to help back up and support our troops and law enforcement departments. Think about this for a moment, if you are going to raid a home, town or country it is much safer for you the aggressor if none of the above have any firearms. The nation becomes much easier to conquer if the population can’t fight back against the aggressor. I as a veteran took an oath to protect my country and my family from all threats, both foreign and domestic. Do you notice that it is the government that keeps trying to take away our ability to protect ourselves, why do you think that is?

America The Lost

America The Lost

When I write something via free thought I am a person who for the most part needs a title first so that I can write to it. I settled on this title because it is unfortunately true in so many ways. By no means am I anti-American, I am not anti any country. As most people in our country probably know, our country is very sick and I do believe it is now to the point where it is terminal. I completely believe that the only chance our country has of survival is if the vast majority of our population (and our leaders) turns back to God our creator with all our hearts, minds, and souls. To be totally honest with you I just don’t see that happening. I believe that the three biggest pieces of cancer in our country are where the three main media centers are located, Hollywood, NYC, and DC. The pretty Lady with the Torch and all of Her land to Her west is crumbling all around Her and us. Also, these so-called Political Parties who always sell themselves to the highest bidders is destroying all of the fiber which our Country was created on and either it stops very soon or our country will not be in existence for our kids and grand-kids.

There are people in our country who want to get rid of the second amendment (the people’s right to have the means to protect ourselves and our families) all together. I believe that most of the people who wish this to happen are filled with good intentions, it is my contention that these folks are a good bit unrealistic in their thought patterns. Even to this date with all of the revelations shown to us by Mr. Snowden along with the IRS flaws and the so-called Patriot Act which burnt the Constitution, some people still think that our government is only filled with good intentions. Many people do not realize that our Country’s founding Fathers had seen first hand how a country where it’s people could not defend themselves were treated by the government. The Founding Fathers very much intended for it to be where We The People could defend ourselves from a government that oppresses its own people. They plainly wanted the people to be able to revolt if necessary. Do you remember your history classes about how the governments of Europe made it illegal for the people to possess arms and then how the Governments oppressed it’s people, where the people with no means to defend themselves simply became servants to the ruling class? How many lessons did you learn from what happened at Ruby Ridge where the government agents orders were “if it breathes, kill it”. Or do you remember the mass murdering of almost all of the men women and children at Waco? Do you honestly think that your best interest is what our government has on its daily agenda?

Now before you get to thinking that I am some right-wing gun-toting Militia member grand-pappy whose agenda is chaos you could not be further from the truth. I am not an anti gun person at all, even though I do not own one at this time. I do believe that everyone has the God-given right to be able to protect themselves and their family. Just like I am not a hunter yet I believe people have the right to hunt if they want to. I am not a vegetarian, I do buy and eat meat from the grocery store, one can not say they are anti hunting if they are not a vegetarian, they would be what is  called a hypocrite. O by the way in case you wanted to pigeon-hole my political association  as being a Republican or as a Democrat, I am neither, I am a long time registered Independent.

Enough now about weapons and people’s ‘ concerning them. I would now like to turn my attention on the economics problems as they are many. If my education was in economics I and many of you could probably write a book on our countries economic issues. I am just an old guy who is speaking from the school of lessons learned from a lifetime of paying attention. O in case you wondered about it, my degrees are in Sociology and in Anthropology but I did study some economic classes while in school. A few months ago I wrote an article in this blog called “It’s Called Trickle Up Economics”, if you would, please spend a few moments reading it. In it I discussed my irritation on how the so-called Stimulus Package money was used. What I wrote (in my opinion) in that blog post spells out my anger without me basically rewriting it here today.

Folks, I love this Country and I love the people who make up the fiber of this Country, for a country is it’s people, not their government. I don’t like the governments of several countries on this Globe but disliking a country’s government doesn’t mean I dislike the people. It is like in our country, I do not like the direction our Country is being led into but I would still give my life to protect our people. It really bothers me when I see how crooked and inept our Government has become and it is only we the people who can change it before we all are led straight into the belly of Hell by this inept evil leadership. I am not mad at how things are, I am just very sad at how blind our country has become and how evil our leaders are.
