I haven’t written much lately because I’ve been tied up with work and making sure I graduated from college. Not to mention the fact that I’ve been trying to benefit my blood pressure by avoiding things that just flat out piss me right the hell off. Well I stumbled across something today that pushed my button so hard I can’t stand it.
WHAT!? Oh so now states aren’t good enough to determine how best to serve and protect their own people. No one in this fine country except those “you” Mr. Obama deem fit is capable of carrying a firearm. I know for a FACT from talking to my local Sheriffs and Police force that I get considerably more range time than they do. Not only that I have a larger ammunition budget for just myself than the whole department. So you can NOT give me that crap that they are better trained.
Your statements basically say that we must depend upon the police for our protection when it has been stated by the Supreme Court that “The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation.”
Obama is nothing more than a bigot who hates gun owners because they believe in doing things themselves and not depending on a socialist government for survival. Every person, and I mean everyone has a god given right to self defense with any weapon that man has created. “The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever … the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”
Criminals don’t follow the laws, only the law abiding. We see what his ban’s on concealed carry have done to different places, why must he force us to all be complacent victims.
The media is just as much to blame however for the misconceptions about concealed carry. I just found this link. In it they list the arrest of the Appalachian School of Law shooting was due to students tackling him. I wasn’t aware that using a firearm was now called “tackling”.
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
