A recipe for activism
against efforts at gun control

American Thinker, by Lee DeCovnick

Original Article

Posted By:Da Bear, 1/6/2013 10:44:23 AM

"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.

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?

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?"

The GOP negotiates like clueless little girls. These one-dimensional thinkers don´t realize that the "fiscal cliff" is the opportunity of a generation to stop further middle class tax increases. The Democrats have bet the house on a modest tax increase for those making over $250,000. Ok then, it´s clearly time for the GOP to raise the stakes.

B.H. Obama has issued 139 executive orders since becoming president. Some are fairly benign; many are deeply troubling, specifically as to the wholesale consolidation of emergency powers into the office of the presidency. The newest executive order is a breathtaking assault on entire sections of Constitution and the rights, freedoms, and liberties of all Americans, carefully hidden within the stultifying and banal language of bureaucratic doublespeak.

The Most Un-American Speech
Barack Obama Has Ever Delivered

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied. In a Tuesday appearance on HuffPost Live to discuss outreach to African American communities,

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, criticized last year by a Vatican official for her support of abortion, received a rosary Tuesday from President Obama that was blessed by Pope Francis. Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

The story of the first-generation Ghanian-American student accepted by all eight Ivy league schools is wonderful, but it also stirs up the tension between black Americans and recent African immigrants — especially when you describe him as "not a typical African-American kid." That´s been the reaction to USA Today´s profile on Kwasi Enin, a Long Island high schooler who got into the nation´s most competitive schools through hard work and, according to IvyWise CEO Katherine Cohen, being African (and being male). At one point the piece reads: Being a first-generation American from Ghana also helps him stand out, Cohen says. "He´s

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December
