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.

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.

#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.

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.

‘Ayes’ Wired Shut: GOP Must
Hold Line on Mandate Delay
PJ Media, by Tom Blumer    Original Article
Posted By: sagman- 10/8/2013 2:09:27 PM     Post Reply
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.

Gun Control by Executive Order?

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.

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.

How Romney Lost

Columbus, Ohio — The realities of the electoral map meant that the Romney campaign really had no choice but to bet big on Ohio, and that bet was a loser. In addition to some critical on-the-ground specifics — Ohio is not hurting as badly as the rest of the country — there were three main reasons for that. 1. Ohio likes crony capitalism. The automotive bailout is popular in Ohio, and not just among self-interested workers and investors in that industry. Putting General Motors on federal life support is economically daft and morally dubious, but it gave the Obama administration a powerful tool for convincing

Obama's Loss: Inevitable for Years

Do not be seduced by the disproportionate emphasis on recent events with regard to Barack Obama's pending landslide loss. I submit that a more sober analysis indicates that November 2012 has been inevitable for at least four years. In some ways, it's been inevitable for even longer than that. You see, Barack Obama and his statist agenda have failed because they could not possibly succeed. In a way, electing Obama was liberal America's dash off a cliff -- and the 2012 election is merely the day they officially make contact with the ground.

"Two Jews, three opinions" goes the famous joke. And every day, more of those opinions turn pro-Romney, as American Jews increasingly reject the collapsing presidency of Barack Hussein Obama. Romney's surging poll numbers in the crucial state of Florida reflect his growing success with Bubbie Molly and her unemployed grandson Adam, who both thought their right hand would wither if it ever pulled the lever for a Republican. The signs and portents are everywhere, beginning with the special election of a Republican in Anthony Weiner's heavily Jewish, New York congressional district one year ago.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) is now accusing the Keystone pipeline of being a cancer risk. Her first point was that the pipeline “will bring 830,000 barrels of dirty tar sands oil into our nation every day.” She then segued to point #2 by asserting that the heavy tar sands oil will put people who live near refineries at risk for cancer: Significantly higher levels of dangerous air pollutants and carcinogens have been documented downwind from tar sands refineries, and in these areas people are suffering higher rates of the types of cancers linked to these toxic chemicals, including leukemia and

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre.

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
