No Guns, No Rights

The beauty that is the AR-15, or as the MSM call it: The AK-47.

(I apologize for the lack of posts in the last few months. I finally had a chance to sit down and write last week and there has been a lot of new information out on the whole gun control issue.  Obama threatening Executive Orders, etc.  So again, I apologize for the lateness of this post, but I hope you enjoy.)

I have to admit, I’m a little pissed.  Not only am I fuming about the recent developments in the attempts to control guns in america, but I’m appalled at how organizations, the nitwits known as celebrities, and news outlets are portraying and demonizing Americans.  They are going all out in trying to punish and endanger people just for wanting to protect themselves and their families.  I mean, I understand it’s the mainstream media, stupid is as stupid does,  but it’s getting a little out of hand.  Actually way out of hand.

Having a newspaper or any other news organization, or even a citizen, do something as reckless and endangering to society, as giving out addresses of people who own guns is just pure evil.  This can only end one of two ways.

The first way it could end is bad, but in my opinion less likely.  Criminals will target these individuals in an attempt to obtain more firepower to help them continue their crimes.  Stealing guns from private citizens is an ideal way to obtain a weapon to use for any sort of illegal activity.  They don’t have to pay anyone for them, they don’t have to get a license or fingerprinted.  If a citizen wasn’t smart enough to have safeguards in place to prevent their guns from being stolen, such as a safe, you can be sure there would be ammo and accessories for a gun as well.  Yes, this would be great for them indeed.

The only problem is, and the only possible silver lining for gun owners would be, this.  If I was, let’s say a burglar, and I was trying to decide which house to break into.  I now have a handy-dandy guide to which houses would be the safest.  Let’s face it.  Would you rather have a shoot out with the person you were robbing, or be the person with the gun in a gun vs. bat battle royale?  The main concern gun owners would have to worry about is organized criminals looking specifically for weapons to steal.

The second option, and I fear the most likely, is the criminals and suicidal psychopaths going after those who are not armed.  It is a fact that mass shootings only occur at places where people are unarmed.  Yes, there are slight exceptions to this rule.  Like people are allowed to conceal carry in most if not all malls.  To my point though, to my knowledge there has never been a mass shooting at, let’s say, a gun club.  These people know they will be able to take out as many people as they want before they turn the gun on themselves.

Gun violence is nowhere near as bad as the media makes it out to be, and they’re downright idiotic to think that taking away people’s gun, or even tightening control of them, will make anyone safer.  I have seen statistics lying around all week.  Like the fact murders involving guns are far lower than murder with hammers.  I don’t hear a ban on hammers being called from Diane Feinstein. Gun control will only make things worse, and mass shootings will increase.

I know, I hear some of you liberal sissies out there saying “why do you need a 30 round clip in your AR-15?  You only need five bullets max for hunting.  True.  While it’s true that I can kill Bambi with one shot, that’s not the reason I need the 30 round clip.  Let’s think about this for a second.  If I can only have a gun with five rounds per clip, what happens when an out of control government, comes after us with their high-capacity, fully automatic weapons.  Oh, that’s right, we only have 5 rounds to protect ourselves.  Looks like we’re screwed.

The fact of the matter is that if we lose one, any one, of our rights, given to us by God and our founding fathers, we will lose them all.  If we were to lose the 2nd amendment completely, in mere months, maybe a year, we would lose all our rights.  The right to worship who and wherever we want.  The freedom to speak freely about anything and everything we want, especially  an out of control government.  Etc, etc, etc.

I just wish those in the MSM and our representatives would pull their heads out of the asses every once in a while to read the pulse of the nation and realize that just because they don’t like guns, doesn’t mean the world is going to hell.  We could always take the guns away from the secret service and the bodyguards hired by celebrities and see how safe they feel then.  The whole situation is actually not as bad as you guys make it out to be.  Stop believing your lies and everything will be fine.

You could hate guns if you want, you could even hate me for having them, I could care less.  Just remember this, you’ll be glad some day if someone saves your life due to the 2nd amendment.

The Second Presidential Debate Is Over… Who Won?

The debate getting a little heated.

Tonight I was a little behind on the debate.  Story of my life it seems.  The first debate I was on a fishing trip and forgot to record it.  I had to work on my house and ended up missing the VP debate, luckily I recorded that one.  Tonight, however, I was invited to a debate party and got there late.  It seems anytime I want to watch a presidential debate live something comes up and I have to rely on my DVR, or in this case a friends DVR.  Luckily I have great friend, they paused the debate before it started and waited for me and my family to show.  So I was only like twenty minutes behind.

Now like I said I missed the first debate, and I still haven’t seen it, but from what I’ve read and seen in the news, it was no contest.  So, in the back of my mind, I kind of hoped that this debate would be the same, although I knew it wouldn’t be.  There were a lot of questions I think should have been brought up but weren’t, i.e. the Muslim Brotherhood members being invited to the White House, Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in our government, and Obama avoiding Netanyahu like the plague.

I was impressed by most of Romney’s answers, though two minutes seems like a lot of time to give someone to answer simple questions, just my opinion.  I say give a short well thought out answer and let Obama take up the rest of the time defending his ineptitude. By the second or third question I was tired of hearing Romney talk.  Not because he wasn’t giving good answers, it just drug on and on.  Obama was no different I need to add.  He spent a lot of his time calling Romney a liar, two to three minutes at a time.

Romney did a very good job of keeping Obama on his toes the whole time.  He brought up broken promises and his failures as president.  Governor Romney answered pretty well on issues such as immigration reform, energy independence, the second amendment, and especially the last question about, basically, debunking misrepresentations of his character.  That last one was one of his better answers.  However, on a few of the questions, it seemed like he kind of walked around it and gave an answer that didn’t really address the actual question.  For example, when asked what he would do with the illegal aliens that are hard-working, he just talked about immigration reform and was basically asked a second time to answer the actual question, which he then did very well.  All in all I would say he had a solid debate overall though.

Obama on the other hand was more like a… a bratty kid?  Maybe a little more Biden-esque in the fact he was definitely more aggressive and interruptive.  At one point he almost seemed pissed, you could see it in his face.  The “altitude” really didn’t seem to affect him as much this time.  I would have to say he did pretty well in his overall response to questions and staying engaged.  Though he never seemed to answer any questions directly.  It seemed that every answer was “Romney is a liar and here is why,” followed by an explanation that based in liberal talking points, it was just the same Obama talking points over and over again.  He must have been studying those non-stop the past two weeks.  I can hear Michelle now. “No intelligence meetings until you memorize those talking points backwards and forwards, and eat those brussel sprouts, now!”  There’s not much else to say about his performance, just redistribution and republicans are evil.

All in all I will say it was a little hard for me to determine a winner of the debate.  Even though they both did fairly well.  If I had to put money on it, I would say that Romney won by a slim to medium margin.  However, according to FOX News, out of their focus groups Romney was definitely the winner by far.  I don’t know, but if that is accurate with the undecided voters, then I say hallelujah!

One other thing I wanted to bring up was the moderator, Candy Crowley.  I think she was probably the best moderator this year, however I would say she was definitely trying to help Obama a couple of times.  Not surprising the MSM will always do that.  No matter how much they try to hide it just can’t portray a balanced, unbiased image.  I just hope that this debate was enough to help boost Romney toward a sustainable lead.

In case you missed it here is the debate in its entirety.
