Obama Using Human Tragedy to Push Gun Control… AGAIN

Posted by Troy on 15th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

Never let a crisis go to waste, right?  With every mass shooting, they make a new push for gun control.  Here are the facts:

An assault weapon is an effective weapon, but other weapons are available that would have had similar results (such as a sawed off 12-gauge).  If they can’t get an assault weapon, they will buy other weapons or make a bomb or poison gas, etc.  As such, an assault weapons ban will not work.  That’s not even assuming that they won’t go to the black market and get one anyway.  If you can buy crack, what makes you think you can’t buy an AR-15 after they are made illegal?

The Terrorist/No-Fly list.  The issue with this is that you get on this list by them just putting you on there.  You have no right to see the “evidence” facing you.  It makes getting off the list impossible.  What’s to prevent them from saying that right-wing bloggers, tea partiers, etc, are all terrorists.  Boom.  You’re done.  The NRA has said they support this assuming that the FBI investigates you and settles the case.  So I will go one further.  If you are put on a no-fly/terrorist list, they have to take you to court and they have to settle the case one way or the other after showing you the evidence they have against you.  They have 30 days in order to do this.  After this, they pay you a $75,000 a day penalty like the EPA charged a Wyoming man that dug a home-made pond on his land.

I remind you, the Orlando terrorist bought his guns legally.  The San Bernardino terrorists had a friend buy theirs.  This is why gun laws are going to be largely ineffective.

I refuse to give up my rights.  Doing so will not make us any safer.  Let them live without armed protection for a while and see how they like it.

Long Live the Constitution!

Orlando Shooting Used to Push Gun Control

Posted by Troy on 12th June 2016 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

I got to wake up to the news that 20 people were killed last night at a night club.  That turned into 50 killed and 53 wounded.  And of course, I instantly thought “Obviously a Southern white male demanding adherence to the Constitution,” much like any sane person would.  But it actually turned out to be a Muslim terrorist.  Ya know…starting to get annoyed by the word “extremist.”  Just throwing that out there.  Just smacks of PC-ness that is unwarranted at this point in the game.  And, of course, I made a prediction that Obama’s response would be “We have to get rid of guns, people.”  And that’s pretty much what he did.

So, of course, we have to put up with them importing more Muslims into our country (seriously look up the immigration rates since 9/11…illogically, we’ve increased the visas to these countries).  So after these shootings, instead of examining how we look at mosques that we know are espousing extreme view points, we are talking about banning guns.  Shall we forget that the mosques raided after the Paris attacks had a stash of AK-47s and ammo?  Or, as I like to say… “Guns should be illegal so criminals can’t get them…just like drugs.”  You don’t think these animals wouldn’t get guns or explosives or poisons or whatever they want to use to kill us?

Obama asks if we want to be this type of country.  So, that led me to ask…what would it take before I decided that I would be willing to give up my right to keep and bear arms?  I guess the first thing I would have to see is that all of our government officials and buildings give up their own guns and armed security guards and fancy alarm systems and live like the average American.  If they feel safe enough to live like that for ten years…we can talk, but really I wouldn’t go for it even then.

The right to keep and bear arms is the Second Amendment for a reason.  They said “Shall not be infringed” for a reason.  I’m not willing to give up my Constitutional rights just because of these terrorists.

Long Live the Constitution!

Crocodile Tears of a Clown Prince (Obama Cries)

Posted by Troy on 6th January 2016 in Current Events, Political

Well, the most powerful man in the world (or so they say) wept on TV for all the tens or hundreds of children killed by guns.  Shame he doesn’t show the same interest in the hundreds of thousands that die to abortion each year, but those aren’t really children.  Those are just cells.  In much the same way that an eagle’s eggs are just delicious and not baby birds.

First of all, they are fake tears.  No one cries like that.  He touched his eye and then THAT eye started watering.  That’s called Vicks Vapor Rub.  Old and pathetic.  To seek to move people to reject their own rights because he is emotional.  Amazing.  Does he believe that we actually care what upsets him?  He is like a five-year-old that believes the world awaits at bated breath at their tantrums.

In regards to his new gun “laws” (as passed by executive fiat), what does he hope to accomplish?

The first is expanded background checks.  Sounds great, but what does it really accomplish.  What they want is that anyone, literally anyone, has to get a dealer’s permit and the buyer get a background check for any gun transfer, even among friends.  So what will really happen is that these casual sellers and buyers will ignore these rules.  This will turn otherwise law abiding citizens into criminals.  It is important to note that this rule wouldn’t have stopped ANY of these mass shootings.

The other is that doctors can now ask you if you have a gun.  If they believe you may be a danger to yourself or others, they will notify the authorities.  There’s already examples of states claiming the right of confiscation in these matters.  All it takes is some activist doctors sending all questionable cases to the feds.  The feds take your guns, and just like the no-fly list, good luck getting your name off the list.  So just remember, if the doctor asks if you have guns, the answer is “Hell no!  That’s for psychopaths!”  Do not answer “None of your business,” or anything else.  Any evasive answer will equal “gun owner” and “suspicious.”

Long Live The Constitution!

People on the Terror Watch List Should Be Able to Buy Guns

Posted by Troy on 3rd December 2015 in Current Events, Political

The Democrats are talking about how they need to close the Terror Watch loophole.  This sounds like something that is so common sense on the surface.  Why would you want people that are on the Terror Watch List to be able to buy guns?  The reason is: because they can put ANYBODY on the list.  They just have to come up with a criteria.  Bear in mind, these are the same people that wanted to put veterans and people that demand adherence to the Constitution on the domestic terrorism list.  Based on that, I’d be rather heartbroken if I WASN’T on the list already.

I remember when Bush came up with the Terror Watch List.  The Liberals cried their eyes out about how people on this list have no way to see the evidence against them and no way to clear their name.  Now they want to take away a Constitutional right.

Hell, based on that logic, let’s take away other rights too if the government decides to put you on the list of people that do not deserve Constitutional rights.  Why let these supposed terrorists have freedom of speech?  Why let them vote?  Why allow them to be Muslim…since Islam does seem to be something to keep out of the hands of some people.  Ooo, let’s deny them the right to vote.  If your viewpoints are different than those in power, you could end up being a terrorist, after all.   We don’t want terrorist voting, do we?  Do they need a right to a trial?  What about slavery?  Ooooo, can we use political dissents as slaves?  Neat!  Hell, let’s just save the trouble and round them up for re-education/extermination camps.

Do you get it now?

Long Live the Constitution!

San Bernardino Shooting

Posted by Troy on 2nd December 2015 in Current Events

Well, it took the Democratic candidates about ten seconds to blame the San Bernardino shootings on the NRA and lax gun laws.  Of course…I mean, this was San Bernardino.  Not Georgia or Texas or Montana or something…but whatever, sure…it’s gun laws.

So we all had to sit there and watch for hours while the media and people tried not to say the obvious…that this is Islamic terrorism.  Of course it’s terrorism.  You have an attack very similar to what happened in Paris with no motivation other than the slaughter of defenseless people.  But we can’t say it’s Muslim Terrorists…that would be stereotyping.  Let’s be honest…in an act of terror against random, defenseless people…bet Muslim.  It’s a safe bet.

I am looking forward to Obama’s speech.  I think it will go something like this:

“Now, let’s not rush to judgement.  We should not demean an entire religion for the acts of a few people.  Islam is a religion of peace, and anyone that kills innocent people is not a true Muslim.  That being said, let’s demean all guns because they were the tool of choice for some false-Muslims to kill innocent people.  The only way for us to be safe is to ban all guns and get the Syrian refugees over IMMEDIATELY!”

Long Live the Constitution!

The Democratic Debate Results

Posted by Troy on 13th October 2015 in Uncategorized

Cold dead hands, yo!  Cold dead hands…just sayin’.  Most of the people on the stage want people to be able to sue gun manufacturers for wrongful deaths.  Let us be honest: This is just an attempt to ban guns.  Anytime someone is murdered, the gun manufacturer will be sued.  They will be forced out of business by trial lawyers.  If you support this, I have one question: what is the difference between being able to sue gun manufacturers like is and knife makers for stabbings or Jack Daniels for drunk driving deaths (it goes on and on).  If you are for this, you are devoid of any logic in your desire for “by any means necessary” disarming.

Good gawd…this was the most boring thing I have ever seen.  These are the slowest talking, most boring people I have ever seen in my entire life…  So let’s go down the list.

Hillary Clinton:  ”Fascist.” She was handled with kid gloves, of course.  If I heard her say “First female President” one more time…  ”How would you be different than Obama?”  ”I have boobs!”  Okay…  Let’s be honest. The chick is a neo-fascist.  She wants to control everything.  She wants to spy on you.  And like all other people on the stage (excluding one), she thinks she can get the wealthy to pay for everything.  This is impossible.  We cannot do what the other “advanced” nations do.  You know why?  Because WE DEFEND THE —-ING WORLD!  If we tried, we would have to gut the military completely.  This would allow all the bad countries to do whatever they want (as they have already started doing anyway).  Be ready for a lot more blood in the future.

Bernie Sanders:  ”Socialist.”  But hey, at least he’s true to who he is.  He would be an utter disaster for this country on all fronts, but at least he’s being honest with who he is.  Give him that.  I think it’s cute how he thinks the Russian people will hold Putin accountable.  It’s Russia.  They LIKE totalitarians.  It’s part of their social makeup.  Why do people try to play with the rest of the world under the assumption that the rest of the world is like America?  It’s not.

Mike O’Malley: “Socialist.”  He strikes me as a weakling that likes to talk a big game.  He went on and on about guns.  Of course, all that he proposed wouldn’t have done anything to stop any of the shootings, but that doesn’t stop Democrats.  Yes.  The DO want your guns.  What is the point of any gun control if the end purpose isn’t total confiscation?  Leave it up to the States.  The Feds don’t have to do ANYTHING for guns.

Lincoln Chafee:  Ya know… nice to see an old school Liberal.  I didn’t like how he pinned his “bad vote” on his dead dad.  Not cool, dude, but overall, not the worst guy up there (but damn if that’s a low bar…).  Still, anti-gun.  Tax and Spend.

Jim Webb:  Holy cow!  Ya know, if he won the Presidency, I wouldn’t be happy, but I would be terrified outta my mind.  Seems like a rational dude that has thought out his positions and doesn’t feel the need to toe the party line.  I also like that he admitted you have a right to defend yourself.   He was the only one that said “all lives matter.”  That’s a new lithmus test.  If you cannot say “all lives matter,” you are weak-willed slime, and I can’t have any respect for you.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Oregon Shooter and Gun Control

Posted by Troy on 5th October 2015 in Current Events, Political

So another mass shooting occurred.  It took Obama about two minutes to make a statement.  Of course, his statement was:  ”This has become routine.  What I’m going to say has become routine…”  Yeah, so shut the ____ up.  Don’t you get it?  We do not want what you are selling.  Of course, the usual things came up.

“We must have greater gun control!  We’re not after all guns, we just want some common sense gun control.”

Okay, well, what would you have recommended then?  Perhaps an assault rifle ban or universal background checks or a registry or something like that.  Okay, well, how would that have stopped this?  Do you think that he couldn’t have killed just as many or more people with a sawed off shotgun?  Of course, hammers kill more people in a year than assault rifles.  Most gun deaths come from handguns.  Over half of all deaths are suicides (more on that later).  Even taking those out, hoodlums with pistols are much more of a problem than “assault rifles.”

“No one should be able to get these kinds of weapons.”

Right, so lets make them illegal.  That way, no one can get them.  Just like drugs.  Face-plant.  Move on.

“We could save the lives of those who commit suicide.”

Interesting that the Democrats are all over assisted suicide, but somehow think it’s their higher purpose to ban guns to prevent suicide.  Ends justify the means?  Of course.  They don’t care if you live or die.  Hell, if you are an older, Southern White Male, they’d probably prefer you die.  Just saying.

“You are more likely to be harmed by a gun in your house than protected by it.”

Oh, that suicide statistic keeps paying dividends, doesn’t it?!  Of course, the people trying to take your guns don’t live in the ghetto or out in the woods by themselves.  Most of them live in well-to-do neighborhoods with dedicated police forces protecting them (assuming they don’t have their own security staff).  But hey, they’ll keep you safe.

Hillary made some comment about how we are willing to accept the occasional act of mass murder as the price of having the right to keep and bear arms.  I’ll tell you the truth.  YEP, I am.  I am much more afraid that our government will go ape-shit crazy and start oppressing the hell out of us than I am about a murderer.  I have a feeling, if you ask the average American which he had more fear of: the government running amok or that he may be a victim of a violent crime, I think more people would fear the first.

I am unwilling to give up the right to keep and bear arms because it the the last line defense of life and liberty.  You can quote me any crime statistic you want.  That will never change this fact.

Also, laws will not make you safer.  If it did, there would be no rape.  There would be no murder.  There would be no child molestation.  The only thing that makes you safe is morality.  Interestingly enough, the Left is all about undermining the one thing that will make our society safer while expanding the thing which makes us less safe (the government).

Long Live the Constitution!

Gun Control and Mayor Blooming Idiot

Posted by Troy on 15th April 2013 in Current Events, Political

I intend a certain amount of disrespect when I call him Mayor Blooming Idiot, but that’s just because I think he’s a fascist moron.  He’s living proof that intelligence and being a billionaire don’t have to go together.  Now he questions why a father would sell a gun to his son rather than just give it to him.  Of course, to a billionaire, maybe a few hundred dollars is but a tawdry sum not worth mentioning.  I can think of a few reasons, but I don’t think it really matters.  Here is the real issue.

Can anyone tell me how many of the guns used in mass killings were purchased illegally?  Has ANYONE thought to ask?  Does ANYONE care?  If you found out that they all came through a registered dealer and were obtained legally, would it even matter to you?  Of course, if you are against guns, that would merely prove your point that all guns need to be illegal, right?  And that’s what this is all about.  It’s about chipping away at the rights of the majority of law abiding citizens because they can’t possibly advance their agenda with the truth.

Do you care that none of the laws being proposed would have stopped any of the mass killing in the recent past?  And yet, we are treated to Obama leading around Sandy Hook survivors like trained ponies in front of the camera, begging us to advance his agenda, and for what?!  Are they just ignorant of the law?  Are the Democrats merely exploiting these people in a moment of pain the way the are trying to exploit all of us by putting these mourners on stage for us to gawk at like some side show freaks?

They claim that 90% of us are for expanded background checks.  First of all, I question how many of us care to be informed.  Most mass shooters do not have anything in their records that would have prevented them from purchasing guns to start with.  Actually, what would be a better solution is to force everyone to go through a thorough medical and mental screening every single year to address these types of issues and those who would be prone to commit other crimes.  So why don’t we do that?  Because it’s an invasive breach of our rights?   Because sacrificing the rights of everyone isn’t wroth the lives we’d save?

We do agree in background checks.  I would say that most people would even agree to adding background checks to gun shows.  However, what they are talking about doing is adding checks to every single gun sale even among friends and other private individuals.  Of course, the only way to accomplish or enforce this is to make a national registry.  This is, of course, what they say they do not want to do.  Over time, they will either lose interest in these meaningless background checks or they will push for a national registry.  I’m betting that the Democrats will do the second one.

Let’s accept something, and this is more poignant in the wake of the Boston Marathon attack.  In a free society, there are going to be cases where people break the law and bad things happen.  When this happens, you can do one of two things.  You can either accept that this is part of the human condition and punish the guilt, or you can take away the rights from everyone.  Bear in mind, doing the first one won’t make you any safer as criminals will continue to break the laws.

Which will you choose?

Long Live the Constitution!

Colorado has gone nuts

Posted by Troy on 5th March 2013 in Current Events, Political

When I say Colorado, what do you think of? Mountain men?  Rugged individuals?  Outdoorsy types?  Campers?  Hunters?  So forth?  So, why is it that they are on the verge of passing some of the craziest gun laws in the country that will do nothing to reduce gun deaths?  So why is this?  Well, I know that Colorado has become a Mecca for pot lovers and X-treme gamers and what not.  Maybe the crazies have out paced the rugged individualists?  Oh, Heaven help us.  It is clear that the Democratic party is hungry to make an example state.  What better example state than Colorado?  A state where they have the power to pull it off without opposition?  A state which is synonymous with rugged masculinity?  I hate to break it to them, it is going to backfire and backfire royally.  The normal people are going to slaughter the Democrats in the next election.  You will also see extreme grass roots movements to counter any attempts at gun control.  Finally, you will see NRA membership skyrocket.

Long Live the Constitution!

Gun Genie

Posted by Troy on 19th February 2013 in Current Events, Political

Question:  A liberal woman who has been promoting the banning of all guns is in her bedroom, and a rapist has just kicked in the front door.  A Genie appears before her.  He offers her two choices:  a 12 gauge shotgun or a cell phone to call the police.    Which do you think she will choose?  Of course, a gun control proponent would say, “Of course under those circumstances she would want a gun!”  But the thing is…you never know when or if that moment is ever going to happen.  If it does, it’s too late to arm yourself (Check out the Boar and the Fox Aesop fable).

Rosanne Barr actually came out and promoted women using guns to defend themselves from rapists.  I have to somehow reconcile myself to the unthinkable…that I agree with Rosanne about something!  Guns are a great equalizer.  I personally don’t know why any woman wouldn’t choose to have a gun which would level the playing field between a woman and a possible rapist.

Meanwhile, Joe Salazar and other Colorado Democrats don’t believe that women can be trusted to use a gun judiciously.  They recommend whistles, the buddy system, pepper spray, or judo.  Anyone that encourages a 110 pound woman to learn judo as a defense against a 200 pound rapist is a moron.  A well trained martial artist may defeat a much larger opponent…unless that opponent is also a skilled fighter or just tougher than they are.  At any rate, fighting is survival.  It’s not a game.  It’s kill or be killed.  If the girl loses, she gets raped or worse.  It would be doubtful that someone would be able to devote the time necessary to become skilled anyway.  An hour a week isn’t going to cut it.  The scenario Joe believes in, that women are going to go around killing men who are just trying to flirt with them, is asinine.  This rates up there with people who were outraged that Zimmerman didn’t take the beating from Trayvon Martin for a while before merely assuming that Trayvon was trying to kill him.  If a man had you pinned on the ground beating you in the face, how long do you think it would take you to pull the trigger?

I wonder if a big man was trying to rape Joe, how long it would take him before he was willing to use deadly force.

Long Live the Constitution!
