Weekend Edition: Gun Appreciation Day

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

Today is Gun Appreciation Day.

January 19th, 2013.

It’s not making those on the left…Liberals…Socialists…Very happy.

Why?

Guns.

The 2nd Amendment.

These are things greatly demonized by the left.

It’s time to put things in the proper perspective.

Those on the left aren’t going to like this much either.

I don’t care.

How many times have we already heard that the 2nd Amendment no longer applies because our founders never could have seen the advancement of weapons we have today?

The 2nd Amendment is irrelevant those on the left are quick to tell us and, they claim, it should be altered at the very least or, done away with completely.

Why? Because of assault “rifles” and high capacity clips?

Proper perspective…Remember?

At the time the 2nd Amendment was conceived and written…Muskets were the assault weapons of the day. Not many who were hit with a musket ball survived. Not in one piece anyway. It wasn’t terribly accurate and it’s range was limited but, it packed a deadly outcome.

There were less effective weapons. Knives, axes, clubs, pistols…

Weekend Edition: “Gun Control” – Socialists in Their OWN Words

Saturday, December 29th, 2012

So…When we, as Conservatives, say that liberals…socialists really…Want to disarm We the People…WE’RE crazy?

WE’RE just making stuff up?

WE’RE the extremists and…

WE’RE lying?

Really.

The denials of socialists when confronted with facts would be whimsical were the facts not so dire and despite what socialists will tell you, the implications are more dire than the facts.

First, let’s have a look at what a few historical “gun control” advocates had to say in THEIR day.

“Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA – ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the State.”

Heinrich Himmler

“If the [political] opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”

Josef Stalin

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.”

Adolf Hitler

There is a reason I open this article with those 3 quotes from 3 of the most ruthless, murderous curs of history.

I want you to keep those quotes top of mind as you read the rest of this article.
