I would love to shake this man’s hand. I wrote to him on FB, thanking him for his eloquent words which ring true with so many of us.
Our forefathers gave us the 2nd Amendment to keep us safe, first from a tyrannical government which could be formed in the future; but I also believe that these forefathers believed that Americans deserved the right to protect their families from harm.
The process to attain guns needs to be followed to the letter. People with documented crimes or mental illnesses should NOT be able to legally purchase a gun. But law abiding citizens who can pass the process of being vetted, should be able to purchase weapons to protect themselves and their families…. click to watch video more
Opinion: When certain people became president they had a plan to tear down America and Americans were asleep. The last president who tried to take down America the Americans woke up. Now these same people who are trying to take down America are still speaking but so are the Americans and this time some are praying, standing and speaking up. We always had the thought that if someone tried to come in and make America a Communist country that the Americans would fight back. We were not sure when Americans would wake up and begin to fight for our freedoms again, but from all the news that is taking place from our constitutional rights to our freedoms AMERICANS are waking up and taking a STAND. Thank the Lord! There are some things that are out of control and our president cannot do anything about it, but we have a mighty GOD WHO CAN! PLEASE BELIEVER’S PRAY AGAINST the EVIL in our country. From killing babies, false preaching, lying to the people, children being taught gender identity, sharing bathrooms with opposite sex —> to steeling our freedoms that this country fought for. We are still here and we can still STAND!
Gateway Pundit: Today’s gun control and confiscation rally was nothing new. Nazis and leftists have been using children for decades in their attempts to take guns away from law abiding citizens.
Here’s a history lesson for young adults in America – Hitler’s regime took away guns from people in Germany and then herded those they did not like into boxcars and shipped them to concentration camps where they were enslaved, beaten, raped and murdered. The victims didn’t fire a shot in self-defense because their guns were taken away.
Hitler said –
“These boys and girls enter our organizations [at] ten years of age, and often for the first time get a little fresh air; after four years of the Young Folk they go on to the Hitler Youth, where we have them for another four years . . . And even if they are still not complete National Socialists, they go to Labor Service and are smoothed out there for another six, seven months . . . And whatever class consciousness or social status might still be left . . . the Wehrmacht [German armed forces] will take care of that.” Adolf Hitler (1938) more …
Opinion by BIBLE PROPHECY TRACKER Hitler took the guns, Stalin took the guns, Mao took the guns, Fidel Castro took the guns, Hugo Chavez took the guns. In Nicolas “A gun for every militiaman!” Maduro’s Venezuela, only supporters of the dictator are allowed guns.
A recent CNN poll shows that Republican voters are starting to pull away from the GOP’s traditional stance on guns:
Antichrist won’t have to take the guns because by the time he makes himself known guns will be illegal.
“Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.

Progressive virtue-signaling by the elites of American finance, technology, and industry is well on its way toward replacing the power of democratically elected government in regulating our behavior. Who needs to go through the messy business of passing laws when the increasingly oligopolistic commanding heights of the economy can impose rules on us by fiat?
The financial behemoth that now calls itself “Citi” yesterday announced that it will be shunning business with those who do not conform to its ideas on the limitations of the Bill of Rights. Currently at issue is the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, but in theory, once this sort of thing begins, freedom of speech, religion, and association, or due process (among other rights), is not off the table…. more
Here we go again. Another assault weapons ban rears its knee-jerk head.The Assault Weapons Ban of 2018 is the feel-good, we-have-to-do-something move. I’m all for it if it will make a positive difference. But it won’t. We already know that it won’t because of the 1994 assault weapons ban.
Remember how excited your mother was in 1994? “Honey,” she said, “finally we’re doing something about crime.” She did have a point since crime had been rising steadily through the eighties and early nineties. The ban seemed like a good idea at the time, and darn it if FBI crime statistics didn’t prove her right. (You hate it when that happens.) From 1994 to 2004, the violent crime rate dropped 35 percent.
When the Department of Justice released statistics about firearms homicides specifically, your mother was even more sure of herself. In 1993, the year before the ban took effect, there were 18,253 firearm homicides. The ban took effect, and the number of firearm homicides dropped every year for the next seven years. They began to rise again in 2001, but in 2004, there were 11,624 firearm homicides, an overall reduction of 36 percent…. more
An oft-echoed line from the left is “No One Wants To Take Your Guns!” But as Kurt Schlichter notes, this is another classic lie.
In fact, that’s exactly what liberals want to do. How do we know? They tell us when they think we are not looking – and, with more frequency, when we are. It’s fun when they say they don’t want to take your guns, then say you have to give up your ARs. If your opponent is getting wistful about Australia’s gun confiscation, he wants to take your guns.
Let’s get serious. They all want to take your guns. Why? Two reasons. First, it takes power from the citizenry. Liberals love that. Second, gun rights are important to normal Americans because the fact we maintain arms means we are not mere subjects. We are citizens, with the power to defend our freedom. Liberals hate that we have that dignity; taking our guns would humiliate us, and show us who is boss. They want to disarms us not because of the gun crime – name a liberal who wants to really do something about Chicago as opposed to hassling law-abiding normals – but because they hate us and want to see us submit…. more
A reporter from NBC News tried to embarrass President Donald Trump while he was in South Korea speaking at a joint press conference alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul on Tuesday.
While many of the questions centered around the Korean Peninsula, Ali Vitali brought up the issue of gun control in an overt attempt to grandstand.
“You’ve talked about wanting to put extreme vetting on people trying to come into the United States,” Vitali said with a smug tone. “But I wonder if you would consider extreme vetting for people trying to buy a gun.”
Trump called her out for choosing his trip to Asia to bring up the issue of gun control…. read more
LANSING, Mich. — New legislation introduced by Michigan Democrats seeks to make it a felony to own weapons defined as assault weapons.
State Rep. Robert Wittenberg, D-Oak Park, presented the bill Wednesday with support from Rep. Jim Townsend, D – Royal Oak. Neither was available to make a comment.
If passed, House Bill 5996, or the “Assault Weapon Regulation Act,” would turn the manufacturing, purchasing, possessing, selling and transferring of “assault weapons” into a four-year felony. It’s one of nine bills introduced Wednesday aimed at reducing gun violence.
But gun advocates tell FOX 17 they believe it’s a political stunt.
“We’re 22 months into a 24-month legislative session,” said Tom Lambert, a gun advocate for Michigan Open Carry. “I think it’s, what, three weeks till the election? I think everyone can piece together why they are suddenly coming out right now.”…. [read more]
Wayne LaPierre, the executive vice president of the National Rifle Association, took to the airwaves on Sunday to blast efforts by Senate Democrats to pass new gun-control legislation following last week’s terror massacre at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, arguing Democrats need to “leave the good guys alone,” while urging Americans to arm themselves because radical Islamists are “on the verge of overwhelming us.”
“What we’re doing with this debate on the Hill right now, it’s like they’re trying to stop a freight train with a piece of Kleenex,” LaPierre said on CBS’ “Face The Nation.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., agreed to allow votes Monday on gun-control proposals after Democrats, led by Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., successfully waged a filibuster last week to force debate on the issue.
“It’s all being politicized with a politically correct White House’s nose and fingers in areas they don’t belong,” said LaPierre….. [read more]
