Why I’m Not A Doomsday Prepper Even Though I Believe We’re Close To Doomsday

February 7, 2013

There’s a fascinating show on National Geographic called “Doomsday Preppers.”  It is basically a documentary series detailing various people and groups of people who are variously earnestly preparing for any of a number of “doomsday scenarios.”  And while it is undoubtedly produced by Hollywood liberals who think the people they are focusing their cameras on are pretty much all nuts, it is likely that they find everything about the doomsday preppers nuts, such that they don’t feel they need to tip the scales in their favor with the kind of propaganda that they devote to so many other subjects.

A parallel would be the “ghost hunters” crap that started to dominate the Sci-Fi channel.  As an example, I believe that these people are so off that the more accurately you frame them, the crazier they will look.  And I think that’s how the “Doomsday Preppers” series is being filmed and produced.

I came across Doomsday Preppers because it was the channel up from the Military History Channel that I like to watch.  And I’ve watched two or three episodes.

You should understand that if you are a liberal who believes Obama is lowering the level of the oceans and healing the planet, these doomsday preppers are as mentally and emotionally warped as I think the ghost hunters are.

Anyway, I’m a guy who takes his Bible seriously (another subject liberals find crazy).  I believe the Bible is literally true, I believe the Book of Revelation describes our very close future and I therefore very much believe in “doomsday” stuff.

Maybe you don’t.  There are two kinds of people who don’t, though: 1) those who don’t think the human race will end in tragic mushroom clouds, but rather that the human race will create a Utopia and they will climb on board the Enterprise and seek new civilizations with Captain Kirk.  I’m not trying to mock anybody by putting it that way; there’s just two very different views of the future.  And man either solves his own problems and lives happily ever after or he doesn’t and things get really bad really quickly before they get even worse.  People of any intelligence believe in one or the other.  The second group 2) are those who are frankly as much too stupid to consider their world ending as a cow lying in a field chewing its cud could consider its world ending.  They’re just oblivious to anything beyond themselves.

Anyway, I’m in the group of thinking people who believe things are going to get really ugly as the human race systematically destroys itself.

So why am I not a “doomsday prepper,” then?  I mean, if I think things are going to go to hell on earth, shouldn’t I be trying to maybe do something to either escape the chaos or be able to fight it?

On my view of the world, no, I don’t need to do that.  God is in control.  And as our world gets more and more crazy all around us, it is actually proving that the God who predicted it would become crazy knew what He was talking about.

As it became obvious that Obama was going to target the 2nd Amendment and specifically target so-called “assault weapons,” I seriously considered getting myself an AR-15 or an M4.  Why?  Well, because Obama wants to take away my right to have one and be able to defend myself with one if needed.  But in my case, that wasn’t enough justification.

As a Christian, I do not have to go through life carrying a spirit of fear.

Again, if you’re going to even consider buying a weapon like an AR-15, you’d better think about it some first.  That by no means indicates the answer will be, “you shouldn’t buy one.”  But you ought to consider issues from “just where am I going to store this?” to “why am I buying this thing again?”

This is what gets to the essence of doomsday preppers versus Christians like myself.

Since I read my Bible and take my understanding of the world from that, I know that most of the scenarios that the “doomsday preppers” are fearing happen well into the Tribulation – after the Rapture – and I and my Christian brethren will be long-gone when the truly psycho stuff starts raining down upon a godless world ruled by the Antichrist.

Here’s the question: if a bunch of Obama’s jackbooted FBI killers came smashing through your door, would you want to be able to shoot them with your assault weapon?  Well, the doomsday prepper is going to say, “Hell yeah I would.  If it’s them or me and my family, I want to make it them.  No brainer.”

But, you see, my answer to that question is no, I wouldn’t.

I think we should all realize that localized scenarios when a hurricane, tornado or earthquake hits and you are completely on your own are more likely than ever.  People in high risk locations ought to consider buying an assault weapon to either discourage or deal with looters.

But I personally don’t spend my nights worrying about that.

The scenario I see developing is leftist fascists using the full weight of the power of government to “legally” drag me out of my home for my exercising of what had previously been my 1st Amendment right of free speech.  I see that happening as America and the world unfolds according to what the prophets said would happen in the Bible.

Would I want that assault rifle in that scenario?  No.  Let them drag me away and put me in prison and then kill me.  Frankly I’ll be glad if they take me in the very first wave.  That way I won’t have to keep being brave after I see what happens to the other people who were dragged away for exercising what had previously been their 1st Amendment right of free speech.

We find that after they take your guns away, you’ve got to be braver and braver and braver in the face of a government that knows it has all the guns and all the power and the people have nothing but interrogation cells waiting for them if they complain about it.

So why would I shoot armed vandals trying to break into my home but not shoot at government fascists trying to break into my home?  The answer is found in Revelation 13:10:

Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.

That passage tells me that in these last days, when the beast comes for you, God says to let him come and haul you away.  There is a time and a place for everything under heaven, Ecclesiastes chapter 3 famously tells us.  There WAS a time to fight – such as before the most wicked president in our nation’s history was getting elected through slander, fearmongering and demagoguery – but when the beast comes God calls us to stop fighting with our own strength and completely depend on Him.

I truly believe that we are heading for that day.  I truly believe that we have arrived at the point in history when God’s people will have to endure rather than fight back.  And I’m going to live that out in the here and now.

And when that day comes to my door, I won’t fight back.  Because the Word of God tells me to endure patiently by trusting in Him and to remain faithful to His Gospel.

P.S. For the record, while we talk about our “national debt” of $16.5 trillion, our real issue is the unfunded liabilities and the fiscal gap that the US government owes its own people due to Democrats imposing Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid on this nation.  Our unfunded liabilities are now well over $225 trillion and they are increasing at a rate of nearly one trillion dollars every single month.  And that isn’t counting the hundreds of billions of dollars in union pension debt that many of our states have accumulated – with California ALONE facing a $500 unfunded pension liability.  And with Illinois facing at least another hundred billion – which is increasing at the rate of $17 million every single DAY.  I say that our unfunded liabilities are our real issue because who do you think Democrats will renege on: China or millions of voters who have a benefit check coming at the end of the month and who will vote them out of office if they don’t keep pumping out those checks whether America can pay the bill or not???  The answer is obvious.  Our politicians will welch on our foreign creditors long before they welch on their voters.  And if we’re talking about having a hard time finding $16.5 trillion, how the hell are we ever going to come up with the hundreds of trillions of dollars that nobody will talk about???

The only thing keeping America financially afloat is the fact that we are the world’s reserve currency, such that most commodities such as oil are traded exclusively in U.S. dollars.  Because we are the world’s reserve currency, we can literally print money in a way that no other nation has ever been allowed to print money without immediate and painful consequences.  China and Russia are already demanding that status be changed.  And Obama and many Democrats are declaring that the United States is NOT the bastion of “exceptionalism” that resulted in America having that world reserve currency status in the first place.  In so doing, our own rulers are actually helping the nations that want to chop us down to size.  Because when we lose the world reserve currency status – that we only deserve if we are the unique, exceptional benevolent superpower that liberals deny we are – it will fiscally implode in very short order as we collapse under the sheer weight of our massive and unsustainable debt.

And then will come our doomsday.

But as a Christian who clings to Christ rather than to Obama or to the America he is “fundamentally transforming,” I need not fear.

That’s why I’m not a doomsday prepper even though I believe we are danger-close to doomsday.

Police Forensic Scientist At Newtown States As Expert That An Assault Weapons Ban Won’t Work

February 5, 2013

Facts are to a liberal what sunlight is to a vampire.

I want you to notice: not only are “assault weapons” not being used in crimes; but even weapons that share the same CALIBUR aren’t being used in crimes:

Police forensic scientist at Newtown hearing: ‘Assault weapons’ ban won’t work
3:46 PM 02/04/2013
Patrick Howley

The forensic scientist for the Bridgeport, Conn. Police Department sharply  criticized proposed assault weapon and high-capacity magazine bans and pointed  out the small number of crimes committed by high-capacity weapons in public hearing testimony last week.

Marshall K. Robinson, who said his area of expertise is “firearm and tool  mark identification,” testified at the Gun Violence Prevention Working Group, which  was convened at the Connecticut State Capitol in response to the Sandy Hook  Elementary School shooting. There he opposed statements from many of the other  1,300 speakers in attendance advocating for banning high-capacity AR-15 and  AK-47 firearms.

Robinson pointed out that less than two percent of the firearms he has  examined since 1996 that have been linked to violent crime in Bridgeport have  been the caliber of AR-15 or AK-47 weapons.

“Since November 1996, I have examined approximately 2,370 firearms. Of that  number 36 of them were either .223/5.56 mm or 7.62×39 mm,” Robinson said. “The  percentage of those guns was about [1.5 percent].”

“I did further research on homicides and assaults in the years 2006 to 2012  inclusive. Of the 217 such cases, there were 912 bullets and 466 cartridge cases  recovered. One assault involved .223 caliber and none involved 7.63×39 mm  caliber. The largest number cartridge cases recovered in one case was 37 and  that involved two guns. The investigations that involved the recovery of eleven  or more cartridge cases was 22. Of the 22 cases, 21 involved 2 or more guns,” Robinson added.

Robinson went on to criticize past gun control measures and argued that new  proposals will not work to reduce violent crime in any meaningful way.

“These are real numbers from real cases in a real city police department.  This is not something made up or fabricated. High capacity magazines have been ‘banned’ before. It proved nothing and the ban was lifted a few years ago,” he  said. “There are many guns in existence, since the 1860s, which hold more than  10 cartridges, the early Winchester lever action rifles, for example, and many  tubefeed 22 caliber rifles. There are some modern firearms for which no other  magazine exist. What do you propose we do with them?”

“In your infinite wisdom, you outlawed bayonet lugs, flash hiders, and  collapsible stocks,” he testified. “In over forty years of being a firearm and  tool mark examiner, I have never seen these components inflict any injury  whatsoever on any person. In your infinite wisdom, you outlawed fully automatic  firearms that have the capability of firing a single shot. Ladies and gentlemen,  I really need help with that one.”

“We all agree that the Newtown case is a tragedy. I submit to you that you  cannot legislate away insanity, which I think is the root cause of this case,” Robinson said. “Laws must be passed based on research and logical thinking, not  on emotions.”

Robinson also works at the state police forensic lab in Meriden, Conn.

ALL the countries above America have 100% gun bans

If I cite Chicago and point out that the city with a complete BAN on handguns has out-of-control handgun violence, doctraire liberal ideologues (which basically means garden-variety liberals) will claim that we need a national gun ban in order for any ban to work.

Chicago and all the liberal cities with gun bans prove them wrong.  The rest of the world proves them wrong.

They are wrong.

This is another example of Obama shoving the stimulus through claiming millions of shovel-ready jobs.  After getting his pork-laden Democrat-benefitting boondoggle, he admitted that “Shovel-ready was not as … uh .. shovel-ready as we expected.”  It was governing by demagoguing crisis.  Then he did the same thing with his ObamaCare, shoving it through Congress with a whole array of lies that have been proven to have been outright lies about access, about cost, about everything.  It was governing by demagoguing crisis.

Now he’s doing it with guns.

Obama is the quintessential fascist.  He is exactly why the founding fathers provided the 2nd Amendment as a means to protect ourselves against tyrants.

If you truly want to ban something that is dangerous and evil, ban Democrats.

Dianne Feinstein’s Liberal Solution For Guns: Treat Criminals Like Citizens And Lawful Gun Owners Like Criminals

January 28, 2013

One of the bright, shining examples of liberalism in action has been our treatment of criminals in society.  The ACLU and most Democrats believe that it is better for a hundred guilty violent predatory criminals to go free than for one innocent person to be falsely convicted of a crime.

This piece from the Congressional Record gives us the perspective that liberals would now like to accord to lawful gun owners: criminalize them.  And it is better that a thousand lawful gun owners have their rights violated and usurped than it would be for one violent criminal  predator to be shot by a homeowner defending his or her property and family.

It will be an uphill battle–all the way. I know this.

But we need to ask ourselves:

Do we let the gun industry take over and dictate policy to this country? Do we let those who profit from increasing sales of these military style-weapons prevent us from taking commonsense steps to stop the carnage?

Or should we empower our elected representatives to vote their conscience based on their experience, based on their sense of right and wrong and based on their need to protect their schools, their malls, their workplaces and their businesses?

This legislation is my life’s goal. As long as I am a member of the Senate, I will work night and day to pass this bill into law. No matter how long it takes, I will fight until assault weapons are taken off our streets.

Put simply, we cannot allow the rights of a few to override the safety of all. That is not the America that our founding fathers envisioned. And that is not the America I want my children and grandchildren to live in.

So I ask everyone watching at home: please get involved and stay involved.

The success or failure of this bill depends not on me, but on you. If the American people rise up and demand action from their elected officials, we will be victorious. If the American people say “no” to military-style assault weapons, we will rid our Nation of this scourge.

Please, talk to your senator and your member of Congress.

By Mr. FEINSTEIN (for herself,) Mr. BLUMENTHAL, Ms. AYOTTE, Mr. BENNET, Mr.

It’s all summed up by the phrase that turns liberalism completely upon its head and proves once and for all time that liberalism stands for nothing but convenient hypocrisy: “we cannot allow the rights of a few to override the safety of all.”  Unless it helps Democrats, of course.

Tell you what, Democrat, if you want to take away “rights,” then please take away the “right” of the government to grow in size and power and debt.  Take away the “rights” of the government to practice Marxist class warfare and demonize and attack people for the crime of working harder to advance themselves and their families.  Take away the “right” of non-citizens and dead people and ineligible citizens the ability to vote.  Take away the “right” of foreigners to cross our border and enter our country illegally.  Take away the “right” of unions to collectively bargain and collectively strike and collectively shut down businesses while businesses have no right to collectively fire the useless lazy bums who keep demanding higher pay in exchange for less and less work.  Take away the “right” to have unemployment benefits forever.  Take away the “right” to enjoy welfare for five generations.  Take away the “right” for homosexuals to pervert marriage.  And please, PLEASE take away the “right” for a woman to decide to murder her baby and force the father of that baby to stand passively by while his son or daughter is brutally tortured and killed.

And if you really want less gun murders, geez, PLEASE take away the “rights” that the ACLU and Democrats have provided to proven violent animals by executing them like the monsters they are and instituting hard sentencing guidelines that liberals have banned.

There are PLENTY of “rights” you could take away that are not specifically cited in our Bill of Rights.

Just so you understand how incredibly cynical Democrats truly are, and how much they truly do not give one freaking DAMN about saving the lives of innocent children (55.7 million of whom they’ve already murdered in the abortion mills, fwiw), just look at liberals’ reaction to the Fontana Police Department buying a few AR-15s to protect schoolchildren in the event of a targeting of a school in their jurisdiction: outrage.  Liberals are outraged that good and decent people – even police officers – would be capable of protecting themselves against well-armed violent criminals.

This sentence from the LA Times sums up the crazy insanity that will manifest itself in trying to ban all guns:

The rifles are kept either in the trunk of the police officer’s vehicle or in a safe on campus.

“Still, Garcia worries that bringing such a weapon on campus could lead to it falling into the wrong hands.”

If even police departments can’t pass adequate muster to be armed, then what chance do the rest of us have to keep guns if Democrats are allowed the power to ban guns from us???

Mind you, some guns are stolen from gun owners’ homes by criminals because fascist liberals who would never publish the names and addresses of child molesters decided that legal gun owners were a far greater threat than the child molesters or the rapists or the violent murderers.

Police can’t bring guns on campuses that are “gun free zones.”  The mass-murdering psychos know that.  Which is why in every single case but ONE since 1950 in which three or more people were killed in a gun shooting, EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM OCCURRED ON A GUN-FREE ZONE.

Democrats have turned our schools into well-stocked preserves where crazy murdering psychos can have plenty of helpless targets.  And they actually have the blue-whale-sized balls to demonize us for trying to prevent them from creating even more carnage as they pass laws to keep law-abiding citizens from defending themselves knowing full-damn well that the criminals won’t bother to follow their stupid and immoral and unconstitutional laws.

The fact of the matter is that there is absolutely NO relationship between confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens and gun crime.  The so-called “assault weapons ban” had ZERO effect of reducing gun crime of weapons that were largely arbitrarily banned.  And therefore what IS now a proven fact is that Democrats are fascists and hypocrites who want to take away the people’s rights to be safe from their government that is under the Democrat Party walking roughshod all over the Constitution.

Why target assault weapons – which was a deliberately misleading title with the intent to falsely connect fully automatic military “assault rifles” with their semi-automatic civilian counterparts so that Democrats could falsely demagogue a straw man?  Because the left is looking for precedents: if they can take away these weapons, they can go after the next batch of guns using their success against “assault weapons.”

You should realize that most of the weapons on Democrats’ confiscation lists are only different by weapons they currently allow by shades of degree.  For example, a Mini-14 rifle is completely legal; but it is virtually identical to many weapons that share the exact same platform that are on the ban list.  The Democrats are savagely attacking what amounts to cosmetic differences such as a pistol grip and a flash suppressor.  The pistol grip was never on any rifle until the first assault rifles.  Why not?  Because it only provided any help for a shooter who was spraying a target with full automatic fire; it is virtually useless for semi-automatic fire that all “assault weapons” have.  To this day, most hunting rifles have a traditional stock simply because the traditional stock provides for greater accuracy and thus greater deadliness.  Flash suppressors were placed on assault rifles so that a soldier fighting at night on a dark battlefield would not night-blind himself with his own weapons fire.  They do NOT make you invisible to detection by others.  If you’re shooting an assault weapon in a city or in daylight, a flash suppressor is useless to you.  All these things are for style, to make the weapons look like the ones soldiers use on the battlefields.  It’s a marketing gimmick, much the way people buy sports jerseys to look more like their favorite athletes.

Democrats are also targeting ammo magazines.  Their primary justification for doing so is to ask the question, “how many bullets do you need to kill a deer?”  As if the 2nd Amendment only somehow guaranteed nothing more than the right to hunt squirrels with an 18th century musket as opposed to its trule purpose to prevent government tyranny over a helpless people.  They are currently trying to ban any gun with more than seven rounds.  The thing is, they are knowingly setting up massive, MASSIVE collateral damage.  That’s because such a ban would criminalize 95% of all semi-automatic handguns.  Democrats are hoping they can ban handguns without even appearing to have tried to do so.

They view “assault weapons” as low-hanging fruit through which they can grab a branch and tear down the entire tree of the 2nd Amendment right.

If you allow them to do so, they will gladly tear down the tree of liberty while the rest of us stand there stupidly gawking.

‘Assault Weapons,’ Gun Control And The Myth Of Which Side Is To Blame For ‘Guns In The Hands Of Killers’

July 24, 2012

I am home following an argument with a liberal dumbass for whom idiot opinion trumps facts.

I heard a man state that James Holmes was using a fully automatic assault rifle to mow people down.  And, being me, I was compelled to correct his errors with facts.

“Based on the records we have reviewed, personnel in our Denver store correctly and fully followed all Federal requirements with respect to the sale of one shotgun and one handgun to the individual identified in this incident,” said a statement released by Bass Pro Shops. “Background checks, as required by Federal law, were properly conducted, and he was approved.”

Holmes purchased a third weapon, a semi-automatic AR-15 assault rifle, at the Gander Mountain store in Aurora just a mile from the movie theater where he allegedly mowed down dozens of unsuspecting moviegoers.

That, too, was bought over the counter, after Holmes passed a background check.

“In 95 percent of all gun-related crimes, the guns are bought illegally, not over the counter,” said Richard Taylor, a manager at The Firing Line, a gun retailer in Aurora. “This appears to be the rare exception.”

According to Taylor, all three of the weapons are commonly sold over the counter; the shotgun, a favorite of those looking to protect their home; the AR-15, a weapon used by small game hunters and shooting enthusiasts; and the glock perhaps the most commonly-used gun by law enforcement officers on the street.

James Holmes did NOT use a fully automatic assault rifle in his July 20 murder spree; he used a civilian version of the M-16 called an AR-15 that fired in one mode: semi-automatic.

The definition of an “assault rifle” is a weapon that is capable of selective fire, with two modes: semi-automatic and full automatic.  The latest military assault rifles that have appeared have modified the “full automatic” to a shorter 3-round burst with each squeeze of the trigger.  That modification was the result of trying to save bullets, not lives, for the record.

Years back, Democrats used a sleight of hand to refer to “assault weapons” and demonize them.  These “assault weapons” are merely semi-automatic versions of the military grade weapons.  Since then, both the Democrat Party and the mainstream media have repeatedly and deliberately attempted to confuse the public into believing that “assault weapons” are dangerous fully automatic weapons that no one ought to be allowed to have.

Which is another way of pointing out that in a way, the liberal jackass who refused to be corrected with the facts wasn’t completely to blame for his being a dumb ass; the media and the Democrat Party routinely and deliberately confuse people with the intent of ginning up manufactured outrage in order to ban weapons under false pretenses.

There are still plenty of damn liberals who want to demonize Republicans over every gun crime.  Oh yes there are.  And I’m sick of it.

I’m just a guy who starts getting increasingly pissed off whenever I hear somebody selling lies in place of the facts.

The biggest lie of all that liberals and Democrats routinely tell is that the 2nd Amendment doesn’t really give the people the uninfringed right to keep and bear arms.

The 2nd Amendment – and it’s “second” only after the right to free speech and the right to worship in a free society – is short, sweet and crystal clear:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

If “the people” means “a well regulated Militia,” as liberals and Democrats routinely assert, then “the people” do not have any rights at all UNLESS THEY SERVE IN A WELL REGULATED MILITIA.  In other words, according to the “logic” of liberalism, you do NOT have the right to keep and bear arms; neither do you have the right to free speech, nor the right to worship as you choose, nor the right to peaceably assemble, etc. etc. ad nasuem.  You do not have any rights at all if you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms.  Because “the people” are either “the people” or they are “a well regulated militia.”  One or the other.

But let’s, just for the sake or argument, pretend for a moment that liberals and Democrats are honest people who truly want to follow the Constitution.  And they are honest for thinking of “the people” as “a well regulated militia.”  That would mean that Democrats and liberals are all for “well regulated militias,” right?

Well, the fact of the matter is that Democrats and liberals are NOT for guns.  Period.  And so they’ve gone after militias as savagely as they’ve gone after individual people being able to own guns.  You see, if you love the Constitution and you hate government regulations, well, you’re an “extremist militia” by Obama’s Homeland Security Department definition and Democrats and liberals are going to do all they can do to come after you.

So Democrats and liberals are dishonest.  They say “the people” shouldn’t have the right to be armed because only a militia should have that right.  And then they tell the militias that THEY shouldn’t have that right, either.

That’s how the Nazis  and the communists were.  They took away “the people’s” right to be armed, too.  It was the very first thing they did.  If they hadn’t, quite frankly, there would have been a lot fewer murdered Jews and a lot more dead Nazi killers.  I think the state of Israel has amply demonstrated that armed Jews are more than capable of protecting themselves when liberal policies had them as helpless sheep waiting for their turn to be slaughtered.  Just saying.

If you read the Federalist Papers there is no question whatsoever that the founding fathers viewed the 2nd Amendment as a reaction against tyranny.  In the Britain that the first Americans had escaped, it was a crime to own a weapon.  There was no way to rise up and thow off whatever shackles of tyranny that government imposed upon them.  The founding fathers said that people should not fear their governments; governments should fear their people.  And an armed government has no need to fear a disarmed people.

I think there are ALL KINDS of things that American society can do to better regulate gun ownership.

But I just as firmly believe that there should be NO regulations of ANY kind until Democrats stop being fascists and fundamentally respect the Constitution and specifically the 2nd Amendment.  Until the Democrat Party IN ITS PLATFORM fundamentally swears to uphold the fight of the people to keep and bear arms without infringement, there can and should be no negotiations of any kind to limit guns in any way.  Because such negotiations would amount to a zero-sum game in which conservatives keep on giving up ground and rights and Democrats keep seizing ground and rights.

These are the first two “gun laws” that we need in America:

1) Any politician (ie., any Democrat) who publicly says that people do not have a right to keep and bear arms will be denied ANY and ALL money by his or her political party.  He or she will likewise be stripped of any and all leadership in the party.

2) Any judge – whether elected or appointed – who affirms that the people do not have a fundamental right to keep and bear arms will be immediately removed from his or her position on the grounds that they violated the Constitution which they took an oath to uphold.

We get those two “gun laws” passed, and I am very open to requiring more responsibility and more regulation of gun ownership.  But until then, we shouldn’t give those fascist Democrats who want to take away our guns so that we are as helpless as the Jews were before the Nazis one damn thing.

I will not allow my rights to be taken away or limited in any way, shape or form by any political body that has so much as ONE politician who is allowed to think, “That’s step ONE toward my goal to take away their guns.”  I will not agree with Democrats regarding ANY limitation of my fundamental right to keep and bear arms when it is a matter of public record that many Democrats do not respect the Constitution they took an oath to uphold.

If you want to come here and assert that Republicans are creating a climate of violence by refusing to limit guns, you’ve come to the wrong place.  Because YOU are the reason why we can’t have more gun control.  Because it is your unconstitutional and frankly treasonous determination to take away the people’s right to keep and bear arms that is the REAL reason we can’t come to an accord on smarter gun regulation.

As we speak, the Obama regime is attempting to take our guns away with the power of the United Nations.  Until you Democrats get this demonic turd out of the White House, don’t you DARE try to touch my right to my guns.  And don’t you DARE try to demonize me for fighting to protect the very Bill of Rights and Constitution that YOU are trying to take away.  Because I’m the one who will demonize YOU.

I’ll leave you with two facts.

Fact one: Crime rates in liberal cities shockingly higher than in conservative cities

Fact two: Gun Control Makes Cities Dangerous Places to Live

Update: here’s another interesting fact: gun sales are skyrocketing after the Aurora massacre (see also here).  And many people are buying “assualt weapons” before any possible ban or regulation limits them.  And this isn’t the first time people have bought assault weapons out of fear of the left.  So people are literally buying guns out of fear of liberals while liberals blame conservatives for all the damn guns.
