I’m not being insulting, most people are not wolves nor sheepdogs, for an explanation see the second video. My instinct as a protector led to a career in the military, regretfully cut short, and I avoid gun-free free-fire-for-predator zones whenever it is possible. I think of the sailor that wanted to become a SEAL dying doing the only thing he could do to protect his girl. Of course the sheep have disarmed our military even on their bases due to years of fear over a conscripted  slave military and the sheep’s fear of sheepdogs, witness the Ft. Hood massacre. I was always amused to see European soldiers on civilian trains with their weapons while American soldiers were not allowed to do the same. Even in military convoys, Americans never had ammunition on their persons and ofttimes the weapons were locked up also.

Do you ever wonder why the occupants of Mordor on the Potomac (D.C.)  are so intent on disarming the American Populace? I do, and it leads to some scary thoughts.

Reason TV takes a close look at the issue of handgun rights and carry permits in California, one of the few “may-issue” states left in the nation. County sheriffs may issue or deny permits at their discretion, and as the video states, they don’t usually approve applications from most law-abiding citizens. That forces people like Sam Wolanyk to carry unloaded weapons openly, which has the state legislature in a lather — and people debating the nature of the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms, or in this case, bare arms.

I couldn’t say it better, so read the whole thing here:

A Sample:

For a decade, from the election of Bush 43 forward, the Left has lied and cheated as it tried to return to power. Al Gore made a mockery out of the American electoral system by being a spoilsport over Florida, which Bush indeed won by 537 votes. Dan Rather forged a document to try to derail Bush’s re-election. Twice Democrats stole U.S. senators from the Republicans. After voting to support the war to get by the 2002 election, many Democrats quickly soured on the war. The profane protests were cheered by liberals who misattributed “dissent is the highest form of patriotism”to Thomas Jefferson; the words belong to the late historian Howard Zinn.

Once in power, liberals were the opposite of gracious.

For two years now, I have been called ignorant, racist, angry and violent by the left. The very foul-mouthed protesters of Bush dare to now label my words as “hate speech.”

Last week, the left quickly blamed the right for the national tragedy of a shooting spree by a madman who never watched Fox News, never listened to Rush Limbaugh and likely did not know who Sarah Palin is.

Fortunately, the American public rejected out of hand that idiotic notion that the right was responsible.

Rather than apologize, the left wants to change the tone of the political debate.

The left suddenly wants civil discourse.

Bite me.

The left wants to play games of semantics.

Bite me.

The left wants us to be civil — after being so uncivil for a decade.

Bite me.

John Lott says that enacting laws against high-capacity gun clips will just disarm citizens.

 

The Constitution cannot be understood because it’s so old?

The canard that the Constitution cannot be understood is a favorite of those who wish to find things that aren’t there and deny things that are. The 1803 Marbury vs. Madison case, in which the Supreme Court set itself up as the arbiter of the Constitution, and the following cases where the Court ignored the letter of the Constitution in order to find new provisions and dismiss existing ones has led directly to this.

The six pages of the constitution are simple enough that a high school student that couldn’t figure it out should not graduate. Is the language a bit archaic? Yes, I’ll grant that, if you’ll grant that the failure of the public schools to teach English. It’s certainly easier to understand than the deliberately obtuse 2500 page bills passed in the dead of night designed to restrict the liberties protected by the Constitution, in order to elevate “pubic servants” to the new aristocracy.
