People are Buying Guns
and Ammunition for a Reason

American Thinker, by Neil Snyder

Original Article

Posted By:sagman, 12/25/2012 6:38:01 AM

It´s 2:00 a.m. You are at home in your bed sound asleep. Your wife is sleeping beside you, and your children are asleep in their rooms down the hall. The muffled sound of a window breaking interrupts your slumber. You´re groggy and you wonder if it was just a dream, so you lie there quietly and listen. A few seconds later, you hear other sounds.

I don´t own an assault weapon. My AR15 is my HDR ( home/homeland Defense rifle). I don´t allow anyone to say I have an assault rifle as it has never, and will never, Assault ( as in starting a conflict)

This should be another Chik File warning to those who seek to enslave us. The Leftist who are running this show should take heed. The vast silent majority in America have had just about all the BS we can take. All it will take now is one Waco style raid and America will descend into a second Civil War which will result in the fall of this Regime. The Propagandist in the Media who support them will not fare well either.

We suggest buying yourself a Beretta 92FS semi-automatic pistol containing 15 rounds of 9mm hollow points. Put it on your night table. It gives one a warm fuzzy feeling to know it is there. Merry Christmas!

Keep in mind that many of those screaming about gun control usually have armed bodyguards or hire security details.

As the Obameconomy continues to stink and only get worse as taxes go up, home invasions will increase.

What I find most concerning about the article is the increase in gun ownership by Democrats. I´m sure these are inner-city gang bangers who commit the vast, vast majority of gun crime. They´re the ones we need to defend ourselves against.

I keep a Louisville Slugger by the bed.

I have it painted black with some cooling fins along the barrel.

It is an assault bat.

Always call first before visiting.

Then chat with the dogs upon approaching.

Then knock.....politely.

Ditto´s #2 . The propaganda arm of the Socialist Party , who like to known as ´ the media ´ , are spinning the gun sales like they do anything else that would expose them . We aren´t arming ourselves because of a shooting , we are arming ourselves in preparation for the coming occupation of his country . By our government . They scream " loony conspiracy nuts . Right -wing extremists . Angry white males . White supremists . Racists . Black helicopter fruit ". Sam Donuts now says the USA is through with the Tea Party . They´ve been acclimating the sheep in this country to those phrases just as they have with the GOP and conservative principles . If they say it enough , they´ll begin to believe it . Those asleep are going to get a rude awakening - all the facts are right there . See that drone overhead ? . Didn´t know your e-mail is being stored ? . Forgot the president can now lock you up without even a court hearing ? . A few billion rounds of ammo for government use ? . Look , all this , they tell us , is for ´ Homeland Security ´ purposes . To fight terrorism . Why does a Dakota police dept . need and get an army tank ?. For a terrorist attack ? . I best shut up before a swat team shows up , and it can happen . I´m positive Madison would have something to say about now .

Not a gun owner, don´t particularly like them and am definitely not a hunter. But I do understand our "Right" to own these weapons.

And, wow, what a Shazaam moment when I read the Chinese communists think it´s a good idea if American citizens´ guns are taken away. No kidding? Imagine that. Those little old harmless (some say) communists would just love to come over here, take our country, and make it their own. Putin would love it as well. Some people are just way too stupid to understand this.

Like I said the other day...since Obie and Bite Me don´t think there is a problem and guns should be banned, let´s see them both walk the talk in public with no armed security details surrounding them anymore. And this includes you the msm...no more armed security walking you from your warm little office to your warm little car (that is started remotely) - since there is no problem, msm. Everyone should sign the Piers Morgan deportation petition.

HU: Me?
BIDEN: Yeah, you.
HU: Confucius say, ´´Outlaw bullets, only outlaws will have bullets.´´ Shutter U. S. ammunition manufacturers. China will supply America’s defective cartridge and clip needs.
BIDEN: Nice. No point ownin’ a gun that could blow up in your face. Tony?

I own an assault rifle. My uncle brought it back from the Philippines after WWII. The bayonet is nice, too. As for what I would use on an intruder, I have a bat. I have a reproduction Lord of the Rings Glamdring sword (Gandolph´s. Stainless steel with a mean point and about a yard long. Nice balance.).

Of course, the Sig is nice if I don´t want to get too close.

All of the FBI stats are fine, but they are not why people are buying guns right now and over the last four years. People fear their government as never before.

I bought my Glock in 2000 just in case Manbearpig won the election.

I have been handling firearms since I was 9yrs old. Used to go hunting with my dad. Since then I´ve handled and fired many different weapons up to and including a .50 caliber machine gun. (that was in my military days). It´s best to be highly trained by a qualified instructor and continue to use your training on the firing range. It´s useless to own a firearm and not to know how to use it, safely, and not maintain proficiency with it. I prefer a .357 magnum with a 6 inch barrel. Also, a noted, a pump .12gage is a good choice too.

Follow their argument to its logical conclusion:

The Sandy Hook shooter was not a lawful firearm owner. Since legislation cannot control people´s deciding to stealing others´ (even their mothers´) firearms and create this latest carnage with them, the guns have got to go.

Believe me, that´s the way they´re thinking.

The AR as in AR15 doesn´t stand for assualt rifle it stands for armalite. I think people haven´t done their homework about rifles. An AR15 platform is used by the military it is just like any other semi-automatic weapon, you have to pull the trigger every time you want to fire it, unless you have converted it to an automatice firing rifle. I would hazard a guess that maybe 1 to 2% have been converted illegally to an automatic fire and that most of those are possessed by criminals and gang members. If Congress passes legislation imposing the pre ban rules that those who vote to impose will be let out at the next election. If they attempt to outlaw weapons completely they are going to have one hell of a time trying to enforce it. One only has to harken back to World War II and the fact that the Japanese had no intention of invading the US because they knew that so many Americans were armed that it would be difficult, if not impossible, to fight every body in the US who were armed. The Democrats should understand that gun owners will not give their weapons voluntarily and if they try to take them by force there will be a civil war here.

As a grandmother living next to young grandchildren I do not have a gun (although my son next door does). I do have the wooden bat but even more effective in my opinion the far-shooting wasp spray that supposedly must be treated at the er to get relief. My 6 year old grandson got his first squirrel hunting gun last night on Christmas Eve.

Yesterday, an on-duty 30 year old female officer from a nearby peaceful suburb was found murdered sometime between 3-5 am. No one knows (at this point) what happened. This sort of thing rarely occurs around here.

I´ve never owned or been exposed to firearms but am seriously considering taking a course & purchasing a handgun for protection. Lots of choices & advice so if anyone can provide additional info on how to best proceed, I´d be most grateful. Feel free to email me (see my profile for address). Thanks & merry Christmas !

Saw Joe Scarbrough this morning state that an AR 15 with a high capacity mag could fire "thousands of rounds per/min". I flew with a mini gun that could fire 5000 rounds per/min, but it had six barrels an a 5 sec limit switch. Otherwise the barrels would melt.Don´t think Joe knows how much a thousand rounds weights. Also cheap high capacity mags tend to mal function. If they limit mags to 15 rounds, all you need to do is tape two together, and it makes them more reliable.
PS Ever fire a shotgun with a cut round?

My hubbly and I are going gun shopping in the next few days. A shotgun for him and a girl gun for me. (Suggestions appreciated.) I am going to take lessons and get my CCW in 2013.

At this point, I am afraid of guns and I don´t want to be anymore. There is an indoor shooting range here that has ladies night where you pay $20 to rent the pistol and take a shooting lesson. I figure it´s a good start.

(My other NY resolution is to learn to paint. Look out Wine & Design!)

Merry Christmas to all freedom-loving L-Dotters.

Good on ya #30. I have a Ruger SR9c, it is a terrific little gun that fits my girl hands and it has enough of a kick for this old gal.
I find a 40 cal is too heavy to carry all the time and the recoil is a bit much for me.

The womens classes at our range are all booked and they had to add more. I am so glad that the ladies are getting serious about firearms.

My group of gals are taking a carbine class in February, just for a refresher. We shoot twice a month then have dinner. Forget the mall, the range is where you´ll find us girlies.

Merry Christmas and a Grand New year, come what may, to all our wonderful LDotters and Miss Lucianne and crew.

#30, when I was looking to purchase a gun in 2000, I went to our local shooting range, where one can rent guns by the hour for use there, and I tried several,l,. A friend who is a deputy sheriff and on a SWAT team also loaned me his personal Glock to try out. I finally settled on a Glock 26 9mm sub compact. It´s small enough for my 60 year old female hands, has less kick than others I tried and was the weapon I was most accurate with.

#30, many women prefer revolvers vs. pistols because loading the semi-automatic clips can be difficult. Ruger makes the LCR, a nice lightweight revolver. Disclaimer: I am a happy owner of Ruger stock for the last few years.

#30, I would suggest a good quality .380 if your hands are really small, otherwise one of the slim 9mm´s would do just fine. Take a reputable course, practice often and also practice reloading in the dark.

#26, I wouldn´t count on the wasp spray. I seriously doubt it would do more than surprise the intruder and have next to zero effect on his agression. If you are going to use something like this get some pepper spray and test the range and pattern so you know how to use it. I know there is a forward that has been circulating stating that wasp spray has better range than pepper spray--I doubt it and I also doubt pyrethrins would cause immediate harm in humans.

Take a class. Get your carry permit if possible.

Find your nearest range, spend some time putting rounds through your self defense weapon. Good for you, good for the gun. Get comfortable loading and unloading your guns, loading magazines, practicing safety procedures. The guys at the range will be happy to help you and answer your questions. Good people. A gun is a tool and like any tool, you need to know how to use it safely and correctly.

Teach your kids gun safety from birth, take the mystery out of it. Take them to the range with you when you deem them old enough to follow the rules. Show them what those guns can do. It´s a powerful and lasting lesson and may very well impress them with the fact that guns must always be respected.

These are things everyone should do.

Oh and good choice #33... I am a lady and have been carrying a Glock 26 daily for 7 years now. Has never jammed, never even blinked at me when I have pulled the trigger at the range. I keep her clean and tidy. Love that gun. Highly recommend it for CC for any lady.

West pushes Iran Nuclear Deal
that Israel “utterly rejects”
Canada Free Press, by David C. Jennings    Original Article
Posted By: sagman- 11/9/2013 6:50:12 AM     Post Reply
As nuclear talks between Iran and major world players enters its third day what has emerged is that Iran will get major relief from sanctions in exchange for the dubiously enforceable promise of restricting its uranium enrichment to levels for peaceful energy use only. And as US Secretary of State John Kerry jets around Europe posing as the deal maker, we find out that the Obama Administration had already taken it upon themselves in June to stop imposing sanctions on new entities created to do business in place of a sanctioned one.

On Saturday morning, Fox News interviewed Ohio Congressman Jim Jordan about an apparent overture by President Barack Obama intended to bring about an end to the horrible, awful, end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it 17 percent government shutdown. The idea, in essence: pass a bill to fund the entire government, and then we can talk about making needed changes to Obamacare. Pretty funny. For practical purposes — at least in terms of having a functioning exchange, the hyped linchpin of the entire enterprise — there is no Obamacare right now. Sure, there’s a website, but only a tiny percentage of those wishing to use it have

Here Comes the Sun: Global Warming
and the Perversion of Science

As the hypothesis of man-caused global warming is trundled off to the Morgue for Scientific Hoaxes, let´s anticipate the autopsy´s preliminary findings: the subject expired after choking on its own premises. In denial, warmists continue to hawk recently discredited tenets: mankind´s (read: America´s) profligate use of fossil fuels pumps enormous quantities of CO2 into the atmosphere; naturally, Earth´s temperature rises, exacerbating the so-called "greenhouse effect"; in time, our planet becomes a most inhospitable place. "Settled science." Until it wasn´t. These postulates were meant to frighten the naive and misinformed into supporting a radical correction that would (surprise!) hit the U.S. hardest.

Biden to use Obama’s postelection

Vice President Joseph R. Biden will discuss arms control Saturday with Russia’s top envoy, a meeting that could shed light on President Obama’s unguarded comment last year that he would have more “flexibility” to negotiate with the Russians after his re-election. Mr. Biden will hold a one-on-one session with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Munich during a four-day European trip with his wife, Jill, that begins Friday. Administration officials confirmed Thursday that the vice president’s agenda with Mr. Lavrov includes an exploration of ways to reduce both nations’ nuclear weapons stockpiles.

The Senate overwhelmingly approved Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) as the next secretary of state Tuesday afternoon, with three Republican “no” votes. The vote was 94 to 3, clearing the way for Kerry to formally take over from Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday. He assumes the post amid a civil war in Syria that has killed an estimated 60,000 people, stalled nuclear negotiations with Iran and the spread of militancy across North Africa.

On September 21, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to reporters before a meeting with the Pakistani foreign minister. She addressed the September 11 assault on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya. “What happened was a terrorist attack, and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four Americans.” Clinton’s statement was notable. It was the strongest and most direct assessment of the attacks from any Obama administration official in the first 10 days after the deaths.

The horrific recent mass murder of 26 children and adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School predictably has reignited the gun-control debate in this country. (snip) The task force led by Vice President Joe Biden has met mostly with groups either in favor of or opposed to greater restrictions on guns and ammunition. Facing strong political opposition in Congress from both parties, Vice President Biden and President Barack Obama each have suggested publicly that the president will act by executive order to restrict guns.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

"No, absolutely not," the November midterm election is not a referendum on President Obama and his policies, Democrat Party Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) told NBC´s "Meet the Press" on Sunday. "[T]hese elections, particularly the Senate elections, are referendums on the candidates running," she said. Asked about vulnerable Democrats who have criticized President Obama´s flawed healthcare law, Wasserman Schultz said they are running their own race. "They have to talk about and focus on the issues that are important to their constituents. And what´s also true is, if you look at the success rate and the track record of

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
