This is as close as any of the Gun Control groups has come to support the new AWB ban. Nobody yet has come forward and publicly give it 100% support probably because we are talking about political toxicity levels that may require EPA Superfunding to clean.
One of the VPC followers pointed to this White House Petition:
Nine days later, the petition has managed to collect 22 supporters in 9 days. But yet they believe they are the majority. A petition for President Obama Issue Executive Order Making White House, Federal Buildings and Events Gun Free Zones (The executive order will establish the White House, all federal buildings and federal events as gun free zones and all federal security personnel will turn in their guns) has gathered 4,508 since it was open yesterday. But allow me to add insult to injury with another White House petition: Allow the import and sale of Kinder Surprise Eggs in the United States. It has gathered 187 signatures in 3 days.
“Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives will introduce legislation to ban high-capacity ammunition clips”
(Office supplies are so deadly!)
““Right away . . . we could pass the ban on assault magazines,” House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said last week.
(Not to be confused with Peaceful Demonstration Magazines)
In Newtown, killer Adam Lanza’s primary weapon was a Bushmaster XM15.
(No, it was not used, but why not repeat the lie? It is juicy!)
CORRECTION: Reliable sources tell me that Lanza brought 4 pistols, 2 AR-type rifles and a Remington 870 shotgun. He took inside one of the rifles and a Glock in 10mm and a a Sig in 9mm.
He was also armed with Block 10mm and Sig Sauer 9 mm handguns, both of which allow high-capacity clips.
(A what? Must be a new gun in the market.)
An M4 assault rifle, heavily used by the U.S. military and available at gun dealers, on line or at a gun show near you.
(For people with degrees and almost any source of information available, journalist are a bunch of purposeful ignorants.)
Gun Control advocates must be feeling a bit disoriented during the closing of this year and it is no wonder they do.
It should have been over and done with. This was supposed to be the day/week/month/year they finally triumphed over the evil forces of the Gun Nuts. Madman commits a massacre in an elementary school, Mainstream Media goes bat-guano in support of more Gun Control, a couple of RINOs are seen wavering on their their previous pro-gun stance, “people” take over the social networks demanding the killing of the NRA (both figuratively and for keeps), the President goes to the kids funerals to make a political statement against guns and the need for more gun control and Senator responds with an all-encompassing bill. Everything was ready in one nice package of victory. And yet you can almost hear them scream:
WHAT THE F*** HAPPENED THAT WE ARE SUDDENLY IN THE DEFENSIVE?
The answer is obvious: Gun Ownership became mainstream. From 9/11 to Katrina, it became obvious that people could not expect that the government deliver in the promises they made to keep them safe. People that before could not even come to terms with the idea of owning a gun, suddenly realized it was their responsibility to keep themselves and their loved ones alive. And with the acquisition of a gun came the acquisition of knowledge and the lifting of the veils of propaganda. When Gun Owners were attacked by the Opposition, it became personal. When a Gun Control advocate accused Gun Owners of murderers, the new gun owner said “wait one darned minute. I am a gun owner and I certainly did not murder anyone! How dare you!” And then came the nagging suspicion that all those tales and stories about the crazies of the Gun Culture might have been vulgar exaggerations that needed to be examined instead of taken as articles of faith. And once the examination started, the rest was history.
Even after the avalanche of negative stories and upfront attacks from almost every Mainstream media outlet, the NRA has the better image while the Media itself is reaching new lows in trust amongst Americans.
As the emotions subside from Sandy Hook, we are facing a great opportunity. There is no doubt that one or many gun control proposals will be brought in the new year via Congress, but we are now in a position of not only present an effective opposition but start a devastating counter attack both at the Federal and State levels. My particular predilection is to see the passage of the Federal Reciprocity Law now that we have Carry across the nation (even if it is only De Jure in places like Illinois and New Jersey) as I believe it will force those states with May Issue laws become Shall Issue. And yes, eventually I wouldn’t mind seeing Constitutional Carry across the Land.
At the State Level, it is up to you alongside your State Gun Rights organization to decide what problem to tackle first and go after it. I am guessing the elimination of most Gun Free Zones will be hot in the agenda but whatever topic is decided to address, you must support it full tilt. Don’t act like a 6 year old and refuse to help just because it might not be something you consider has more value. We are in this together and every victory chips away at the Opposition’s dwindling strength. Also, do not get discouraged if you lose some cases or fights: it is bound to happen, but we have been winning more than losing so the future is bright if we all help.
It goes without saying that if you are not a member of the Big Pro Gun Organizations, you are being inconsiderate. Please spare me why you don’t like this group or the other because they don’t do enough-do too much-are too agressive-not agressive enough because so far I have not seen anyone rejecting their achievements, just the opposite. Memberships are very cheap and this is a numbers game.
Although I am painting a somewhat rosy picture, get ready because it is gonna get ugly. You will be called all the names of the nasty book, accusations against your mental state, sexuality and right to live will be thrown carelessly as they try to embarrass you into silence and lack of action. Don’t fall for it and strike back with smarts. Do not play their game, make them play ours. Research, research and research, seek support and don’t let them breathe.
And f*** ’em if they can’t take a joke.
According to police, a man was approached by an armed man who demanded his gold-chain. The armed man then shot the victim in the leg.
The victim returned fire and killed the attempted robber.
I predict that recidivism in this particular case will be zero. This area is unfortunately filled with predators that feast on good hard working people. Nice to see that one less idiot will no longer roam the streets.
As of this morning (December 19th, 2012), there were 1,000,645 active concealed weapons permits in Florida, according to Putnam’s office.
But I want the Opposition to keep believing we are in 1994. Why make it harder for them to crash and burn? They still have the ear of the Mainstream Media, but lost control of the message long time ago.
It is far from over and we must fight: This time is not only for what we have but for what we can rescue. And if we see the Opposition self-immolate in the stupidity of believing their own narrative, much better.
