A recipe for activism
against efforts at gun control

American Thinker, by Lee DeCovnick

Original Article

"Obama Plans Broad Gun Control" screamed the Drudge Report headline. So what actions can a responsible gun owner take to stop this legislative insanity? There are, of course, the accepted channels of communications: email and phone calls to your two Senators and the Representative from your Congressional district. Having once worked as an idealistic political intern in a legislative office, I was flabbergasted at the utter contempt that the staff and "my" legislator held for the ordinary voters of the district. Respect was only paid to the large financial donors and their minions.

A action plan that will empower all gun owners

In other words, I have to bribe my representative to uphold the very law he/she swore an oath to obey?

Uh, no, that´s not the way it works.

#2, the article is not suggesting "bribing". The point is to let them know who you are supporting (now). There´s nothing wrong with telling them you won´t support them if they vote for gun control.

Sure, let´s bow and scrape before the royalty (who supposedly work for us) and beg them to continue allowing us to exercise our Constitutional rights. No thanks, they need to see our serious determination on this issue. A vote for gun control is a ticket to a real job. Period.

Take that suggested $1500 donation and buy a few more toys for the collection.

1-A defensible rural location.

2-Weapons appropriate to the anticipated threats.

3-The courage and wisdom of the Founding Fathers.

4-A commitment to the notion that calmer heads will prevail and that these ´precautionary measures´ will not be pressed into service.

The government does not have the power to take away rights "endowed by our Creator".
Use ridi
cule against Obama and the democrats. Force democrats to explain why they do or don´t defend the Constitution. Put them on the defensive.
Say that Obama is taking his messiah complex to a new level. He is not God and therefore looks like an arse if he tries to take away our God given rights.
I knew Obama would one day go too far.. SHALL not be infringed is not negotiable.

On July 29, 2013, the Department of the Army in a Combined Synopsis/Solicitation, Solicitation Number W15QKN13T8513, asked the General Services Administration to procure "592,825 (approx) AK Rifle Magazines: 7.62x39mm Caliber, New Production, Steel, 30 Round Capacity". That many magazines would require 17.8 million rounds just fill each magazine once. What nation or even what moderate Syrian rebel group needs that kind of firepower?

This year´s challenging quiz is designed for the entire family. Split everyone into two teams, the bigger the better. No fair using computers, iPhones, tablets, or any other digital devices. Hopefully these mental gymnastics will evoke some wonderful memories, lively discussions, peals of laughter and a short respite from the icy winds of change sweeping our country.

The Obama Administration has actively pursued a Progressive crusade to shred the Constitution, disarm the general public, destroy the middle class though excessive taxation and deliberate over regulation, enroll and encourage millions of American to become life long government dependents, shutter NASA, destroy the world´s finest healthcare delivery system, and muzzle political dissent though the misuse of federal agencies.

As North Korea has demonstrated, an impoverished, an impoverished, starving population is no obstacle to a determined leader desiring nuclear weapons. So now, Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt, is committing billions of dollars to re-starting the country´s nuclear program, a reactor that could pave the way for nuclear weapons.

The clowns who frequent Sacramento´s seedy bars and whorehouses, otherwise known as the members of the California State Legislature, have pulled off another midnight raid deep into the pocketbooks of all Californians. At least street thugs and bank robbers are a one-time occurrence; but these perfumed lapdogs of the special interests that ruin...er... run the Golden State have permanently attached a suction hose to our bank accounts.

This weekend, The New York Times published an op-ed piece on the failing American economy by David Stockman, Ronald Reagan´s budget director from 1981 to 1985. Please print it out, post the important paragraphs on your refrigerator door, and email the piece to all you friends and family. Stockman´s somber, funeral op-ed lays out his belief that the American economy has already driven off the cliff, that we´re now in a slow freefall, just a few crises away from slamming into the ground.

Three Florida high school students disarmed another student who was armed with a loaded pistol while riding home on a school bus. The school district then promptly suspended all three students for being involved in an "incident" with a weapon. One of the suspended students asked, "How are they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?"

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

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

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 Hole, Golf Considers

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

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
