Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in 2nd Amendment

I just figured, what the hey! Throw this story up so the libs would have something else to complain about. A teen in Miami was burglarizing a home and activated the alarm, which was sent out to the homeowner and the cops. The homeowner got there first and got into an altercation. Not sure what that altercation was but it didn’t turn out well for the burglar. I was trying to find the footage where the aunt or mother was talking about he didn’t need to get shot. He loved all kinds of things (especially when they belonged to someone else) and you have to understand that he needed money to live and have stuff. That makes sense but why didn’t he work for that money and live within his means? Ah, that is the tricky part. His mug shot (yes, mug shot from a prior arrest) makes him look like the boy Obama would have had. Crime has consequences and I only wish that it would happen to the dumbasses that try to justify these actions and vilify the criminal. Then maybe there tune would change but I highly doubt it. It is because of society and Uncle Charlie that these things happen. Yeah, right.

You may not think the two are in “common” with one another but let’s have a quick look. Do you remember when Obama made an executive order to study guns and gun violence as a disease? No? It is nothing new and many Presidents have tried to politicize the CDC and its findings. Read this to refresh your memory. Now do you remember? Okay, let’s move on. Creigh Deeds, a Virginia state Senator, had a mentally unstable son who was getting help from the state. His son was released because they couldn’t find a bed for him. His son stabbed him the next day and then shot himself. Deeds is a Democrat and pro gun. Deeds is sueing the state. Deeds is not touting gun violence. He is touting a failed mental health system and incompetent evaluators. Too many mental health facilities have been closed because crazy people have rights too. Well, if crazy people have rights and are left roaming the streets unmonitored, why are politicians (read “hacks”) trying to make gun owners as mentally ill? Oh, stop your ignorance. You know exactly that has been another one of their game plans. “No one is trying to take people’s guns”. Yeah, right.

Now with that prelude, you will understand my skepticism on the matter I am about to relay. As I have repeatedly told you, I don’t believe in coincidence and with the current “urging” for more gun control and the links I have relayed above, this is another one of those faux coincidences. I went to the doctor 2 days ago for my yearly physical. After the start of the new year, I always have to confirm that all related information on my residence, billing, and medical provider have not changed. So the first pre-printed sheet I perused to make sure all data was correct and I signed it. The second sheet told me that I was accountable for any charges not covered or paid by Medicare or my health provider. I signed that one too. The third sheet told me of the HIPA practice and receiving my sheet of information. I signed that. The fourth sheet threw me for a loop. It was 16 questions that had no bearing on the other pages. It was a questionnaire that was completely focused on one issue. Here are some of those questions:
1. Do you have a difficult time going to sleep or staying asleep?
2. Do you frequently wake up in the middle of the night?
3. Do you have bad dreams?
4. Do you not want to get out of bed in the morning?
5. Are you depressed?
6. Have you before or do you want to hurt yourself?
7. Do you want to hurt others?
8. Do you get mad easily?
9. Do you yell a lot?
10. Do you throw things when you are angry?
Are you getting the picture yet? They don’t need to ask if you own guns (yet) until they established you are mentally unbalanced. There were two fluff questions that appear to be innocuous but I’m sure that there is some bizarre correlation. The questions were:
11. Do you take aspirin? (I guess that is for all the little voices you are hearing and it making your head hurt)
12. Do you have allergies to anything? (Yes, liberals!)
This starts the process. Who doesn’t raise their voice at times when frustrated? Who doesn’t have difficulty falling asleep if something pressing like a recent death or a nagging problem unsolved, disagreement with a spouse or possibly a flight or procedure to be done? Many things keep people from falling asleep at times, as well causing them to wake. Some people’s bladders won’t hold all night. Sometimes you wake trying to remember if you locked the front door, turned off something or left food out. Shoot, I can think of innocent counters to most of these questions. It appears that we are trying to see have far and how much mental illness has transpired. Sure makes it easy for grabbing guns, don’t you think?

If we are serious on taking care of mental health then we need to be serious about taking these people off the street and re-opening and building new mental health facilities (and that would mean LOTS of facilities, especially for all the whack liberals running loose). Who am I kidding. These assholes aren’t worried about taking care of a mental health problem, which is REAL. They are only worried about a gun problem (which doesn’t exist). Remember, guns don’t commit crimes; liberals do.

I have been busy lately. REAL busy. At times I am pulled in 10 different directions and that is not good cause my wife tells me I can’t multi-task. That has proven to be correct. Looking for some downtime, I was expecting Christmas to fulfill that need. I was wrong so I set my sights on New Years. After all people are usually slow moving on New Year’s Day and wanting to watch parades and football games and just lay back. Perfect. That was the plan BEFORE I got the e-mail from VCDL (Virginia Citizens Defense League). Being a member and wanting to do my bit during these insane times with politicians going on gun tirades, I figured that it would be an easy time of it at the Dulles Expo Center because who was going to go out on New Years and buy guns? Someone needed to man the table and I sacrificed some much needed downtime to accommodate. I figured that I would be the only knucklehead out there. When I showed up for the first shift I found out that that notion was just flat wrong. Where the booth normally has 3 to 4 people per shift manning it, we had some of the second shift hanging around and helping early. There were many more VCDL members that were there just because. THAT is what is known as dedication to the organization. The really strange part is that the show opened up at 3:00. I got there at 2:30 and had difficulty finding parking ANYWHERE! The line stretched around both sides of the building and wrapped around the back for those people wanting to get in. It stayed that way when my shift finished at 5:30. This is normally unheard of, especially on a holiday. I would have stayed longer myself but the kids were taking me to the movies for my birthday and, as stated, I needed some downtime.

Now the reason for the mob at the show was simple: people needed protection, ammunition and accessories because of what is going on in the world. We have fear of terrorism in our neighborhoods and still have the gang problems. The police are not as aggressive on crime as they were for fear of being sued or charged with a crime. Their own leaders and administrations aren’t backing them at times and some of the populace outright hate them. This causes more crime and less protection. It appears that true protection and defense is left in the hands of the people as it always was meant to be. Here in the Old Dominion we have a new added threat–our own government. These scumbag politicians will not be outdone by the scumbag federal politicians who illegally make law and steal rights that they have no legal right to do. Let me lay it out for you in case you are unaware of recent events.

Governor McAuliffe (aka McAwful) has a debt to repay for all the money Micheal Bloomberg threw at the last election. That debt is to use senselessness to get rid of guns. Since all his previous endeavors have failed, he is using the radical venue of “executive order”. You know where that comes from, right? This is what he is doing. In a nutshell he is restricting guns in ANY state owned and/or operated building. That means that there will be no carry at, say, ABC stores (and we all know that liquor stores are prime holdup establishments), the DMV and, hey, have you ever been traveling at night and had to take a bathroom break? Most people stop at the rest areas, especially for the women folk. State run rest stops with no security or police, late at night, dark, parking lots a ways from the building and not knowing WHO is in the building. In a nutshell, think of the governor making ALL state run/owned parks and buildings, that you pay for by the way, GUN FREE ZONES! Do you trust the governor with your life? Would you trust a mental patient babysitting your children? A problem is being solved where no problem existed. This makes no sense where rational people are concerned. And Senator Kaine and AG Herring are on board with this. Right out of the liberal playbook and in both state and federal governments pushing this pile of crap. THAT IS SCAREY and always has been.

Not to be out done and bowing to the Bloomberg money master, AG Herring (that would be Red Herring, who was an equally tragic and liberal hack politician as a supervisor in my county as well state Senator) did an audit with his state police commissioner and orchestrated his own anti-Virginian dance. HE determined that other states that Virginia has reciprocity with (states where Virginia honors their concealed carry permits here and they honor ours in their states) don’t “meet” our concealed carry criteria and, therefore, will not be honored come February 1st. In kind, it would appear that those states no longer recognized from the Old Dominian will not RECOGNIZE the Old Dominion either. Now you cannot safely carry a defense arm into other states which, technically makes more gun free zones and inhibits your right of self defense elsewhere. Why? Because Herring knows what is best for you and you should trust his judgement also, right? Here is the revealing parts from The WaPo, which is a main mouthpiece for the liberal nut jobs:

” Attorney General Mark R. Herring announced Tuesday that the commonwealth will no longer recognize out-of-state concealed handgun permits, part of a national push to circumvent legislatures opposed to tightening gun laws.”

Plain and simple: to circumvent legislatures… This means it doesn’t matter what laws the legislatures make because those in key positions of government HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE AND INTERPRET THEM ANYWAY THEY WANT. That is what a despot does. But then WaPo continues with its reveal:

“The move is in step with actions governors and attorneys general are taking to address gun violence without going through Republican-controlled legislatures.”

..without going through Republican-controlled legislatures. Has anyone done this type thing when they were Democrat-controlled legislatures? This is what dictatorial governments do. Call it fascist, communist, socialist or any other name but you can’t call it American because it is NOT what America stands for, by our Constitution. I feel shame and anger when the Old Dominion, the most patriotic state throughout history, elects and condones the abuse from the scumbags pushing this liberal anti-American and anti-Virginian crap. Most of it happens from the people who get too lazy to vote for whatever reason and excuse that they can live with without guilt or those ignorant people easily persuaded with lies because they are just too damn lazy to do the research and protect themselves but, more importantly, protect us from these predators and our rights. That is why I have only been a member of three organizations in my life: PADI, the NRA and VCDL.

VCDL is a grassroots organization in Virginia, the most potent and most powerful, that stands up for our gun rights. You may say “ACT, why are you so narrow minded and only worry about gun rights?” Well, since you weren’t paying attention before I will repeat myself yet again. The 2nd Amendment is what protects all the other amendments to the Constitution. Don’t doubt the truth or the obvious. Sane and rational people know this. Our founders knew this because they looked through history and other countries and their governments before they created a document that gave people true freedom never before seen anywhere else on this earth. That document has kept this Republic, yet others wish to destroy it. You can see it for yourself on a daily basis in the news. Logical people understand. The mental liberals don’t until they have to live it (the 2×4 between the eyes of a jackass to get attention) and they won’t live it cause they don’t want to know the truth. VCDL keeps Virginians safe by helping to create an environment where defense is allowed for all Virginians. The only way to stop a criminal is with self defense because criminals just won’t obey the law, no matter how many laws you make. THAT can be seen throughout history if you just do your research.

If you are a Virginian; if you believe in a right to self dense or defense of your family, friends or even strangers ( this would be considered a selfless person of which I am); if you own a gun and want to protect that right, then you need VCDL. You should become a member as it only costs $25 and it would be the best $25 you’ll have spent. Go to http://vcdl.org and look over the site. Learn what this organization does in a tireless fashion. ABSOLUTELY sign up for VA-Alert. We don’t give out your e-mail address and no one will contact you. You will have regular news information on what has and is occurring in Virginia as it pertains to your gun rights. It is unbiased, truthful news. Once you have an understanding on what is happening throughout the state, in Richmond and other counties, FIGHT FOR YOUR FREEDOM and help us fight for you and with you. Join. I’ll say it again, JOIN. We need to show the nation that we will not be party to giving up our defensive freedoms and becoming willing sheep to the slaughter. JOIN.

CV3NLKkWcAAEDAeOf course, the chicken on the right is “racist”!!

Also, after the coyotes raid the henhouse, the chickens have to make sure that the coyotes’ feelings are not hurt.

And there certainly should be no fence around the farm

We really need some common sense speech reform. Of course, I am acknowledging that the 1st amendment right to free speech still exists, but it is clear that there is a need for a background check, waiting period and a license before one engages in it. Far too many people are getting their feelings hurt. And college campuses are leading the way in common sense speech reform.

I have very little information and will post this article for the time being. I wanted to be the first to condemn the gun that did this. It appears that way too many bad guns are floating around in America. This gun took a 20 year old boy hostage and made him shoot other youngsters. It even made the boy ask students what religion they were before the ban gun blasted them. In the end, the boy being held hostage by the bad gun was forced to point it so that the gun shot at police. The police shot back and killed the poor hostage boy but the bad gun is still very much alive and will probably serve out its years in a lab somewhere instead of seeing the inside of a metal shredder. Unfortunately there were no good guns in the building to stop the bad gun’s rampage. These bad guns need to be found and die. Taking people hostage and making them pull the triggers on these bad guns have to stop. I wish that this incident never happened but you never know when a bad gun will show up and cause this type of havoc. Maybe the bad gun wouldn’t have taken this boy hostage if it knew that there were good guns near by. I’m sure that the Dem governor of Oregon, Congress, Obama and Lynch will be condemning these bad guns quickly and move forward to capture them. Unfortunately, bad and good guns look the same and will be caught in the cross fire (no pun intended. Well, maybe). What can be done?

Jeb Bush misunderstands the Constitution.

COLBERT: Well, the right to have an individual firearm to protect yourself is a national document, in the Constitution, so shouldn’t that also be applied national —

BUSH: No. Not necessarily… There’s a 10th amendment to our country, the Bill of Rights has a 10th amendment that says powers are given to the states to create policy, and the federal government is not the end all and be all. That’s an important value for this country, and its an important federalist system that works quite well.

Let’s look at the actual amendments in question:

Second Amendment
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.

Tenth Amendment
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

In McDonald v. Chicago (2001), the Supremes “incorporated” the Second Amendment, which means it applies to the States as well as to the feral government, thanks to the 14th Amendment.

This overrides the Tenth Amendment, because the laws proposed by the gun-bun kooks are “prohibited by [the Constitution] to the States”.

And what, exactly, are we talking about, anyway? Mental health checks:

BUSH: [Florida has] a requirement of background checks, a seventy-two hour waiting period…. We’re not violating any Second Amendment rights. In fact, Florida would be considered a Second Amendment, pro-gun State. Gun violence is way down. But we have simple check to make sure that people who are criminals are not accessing guns, and I think the next step is to figure out ways to make sure that we can know if people have mental health issues, which is really the common denominator of a lot of these violent, tragic cases, where people aren’t getting access to mental health and we don’t even know if they have real issues.

Again, Bush “misunderestimates” the Constitution.

Fifth Amendment
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

And yet it seems that Jeb advocates depriving people of their Second Amendment rights without such “due process of law.”

One last thing. If someone is so mentally ill that the court declares that he cannot have a gun, then he is too mentally ill to have a vote.
