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.

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.

‘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.

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.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

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

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park
