Quote of the Day: Michael Bane (3/22/2013)

Of course, you’ve got to pay your attorney, and because your car, guns and magazines were “seized for cause,” that is, the property was confiscated because you in fact broke a law, you will probably get your car back, but Denver and surrounding municipalities have a policy that NO guns “seized for cause” will be returned.

That’s the minor “inconvenience” that the Governor says is definitely worth inflicting on law-abiding Colorado citizens for a law that will, according to B-Ho’s own Justice Department says will have NO EFFECT WHATSOEVER on crime.

[If you want a clue at the real intent of these laws, look no further than New York and this recent discovery:

Nearly a year before signing the nation’s most stringent gun control measure into law, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched a hotline that allows state residents to report illegal gun owners in exchange for a $500 reward.

Tell me, if this was really about lowering violent crime rates, why not actually offer that reward for catching people actually doing bad things?  Instead they created this broad bill that criminalizes every gun owner and are encouraging neighbors to stab each other in the back.

Here’s a tip for anyone living in that crap hole, get a 30 round mag from across the border and toss it in your local representatives car and have someone else call it in.  Even better toss it in their spouses car.  Even better if they’re a Fudd and just more than willing to throw you under the bus while they enjoy the rights they would deny you like Gabby Giffords and her husband.

There is no question in the intent of these laws, doubly so as the people supporting them also scream about confiscation. Next time someone tells you they’re not out to confiscate weapons, call bullshit.  There’s enough on the table now that anyone who says that is merely lying or not paying attention.  Frankly if you’re not paying attention, STFU, you have no business talking with regards to this conversation. –B ]

Quote of the Day–Sebastian (3/21/2013)

Likewise, the gun rights debate is actually not about guns, but is rather a personhood debate, derived from the fairly common and historically pervasive American notion that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental right of citizenship and personhood. The right to defend one’s home, one’s life, and one’s liberty is deeply rooted in our sense of personal autonomy, self-reliance, and in our relationship with those who govern us, or who would claim to govern us. It is just as much about a right to our own corporal integrity and dignity as it is to many who support abortion rights.

Quote of the Day – Sebastian (3/19/2013)

The passage of SAFE in New York, the bills currently in Congress, and Colorado should be a wakeup call that they will pass whatever they can get away with. Gun control must go the way of the temperance movement.

[I couldn’t agree more.  It disturbs me no end that people are bitching about Google Glass and the dangers posed while walking around with their smart phone.  Yet at the same time they turn around and say we should throw more money and technology at something like this and then say with a straight face it could never be used for evil.

Yeah tell me, how many houses were robbed thanks to the database of gun owners created by that New York newspaper?  Tell me, how many houses will be robbed by the state when the state legalizes the theft of a particular piece of property by members of the state?  How many people will be killed in that process and in the aftermath as they try and create their “utopia”.  Thanks but no thanks, I’ve seen this movie before.   -B]


Quote of the Day – Robb Allen (3/14/2013)

These are the people who consider themselves more enlightened than you or I and who think they have what it takes to rule your life. It’s like watching a retarded kid scream about how your tying your shoelaces wrong and then gets confused over the Velcro straps holding his sandals on his hands.

[And it isn’t just one or two people who seem to think like the person who wrote the provoking tweet either.  Look at this recent tweet that came across twitter.

Don’t worry I responded as my snarky self.

After which he couldn’t take it and promptly banned me.  Not unexpected given their prevalence for reasoned discourse.

Honestly I think Robb nailed our opponents with that analogy. -B]

And They Call Me Racist…

I’ve been called racist because I disagree with the policies of Barak Obama.  I’ve been called racist because of my membership in the NRA.  Tell me, am I really racist though for either of those things?

Hmm, interesting, why wasn’t this covered in the 5 o’clock evening news?  Why didn’t the media out all these folks who are obviously racist for their views of the NRA?

Could it be that people are using the racist label to shame those with opinions of which they differ?  Could it be the racist flag is being thrown when someone doesn’t like the argument of the other and see it as an easy out?  Or could it be that those people are honestly racist and think that anyone else must always be racist in their motives?

You have people like Joan screaming things like:

Plus, the NRA has thought of a cynical new way to make angry white guys more afraid of Black people with guns by encouraging people of color to arm themselves.

*blink* Seriously, I’m the racist here because I don’t have a problem with anyone being armed, yet Joan isn’t racist and is upset at the though of black people carrying weapons because it upsets her and her racist friends.

Look at the reaction by anti-gunners because Colion Noir decided to join with the NRA.  Heck, look at the media in general (just google Colion Noir NRA and you’ll find pages of this type of garbage), their focus wasn’t on Colion’s message, or that he had been doing videos on his own for a long time, it was, “How dare the NRA have a black man come into it’s ranks, especially as any type of spokesman!?”

Seriously, who’s acting racist in this debate?  Because the NRA doesn’t have any other members who are black, much less any black members of the board of directors?  Could it be you cannot argue with facts and logic and you are upset that the NRA represents 4 million people of whom you wish to deprive them of their inalienable as well as constitutionally protected rights?

You all keep using that word in that way and honestly it’s going to be the same as every other abused adjective, devoid of meaning.  You’ve labeled so many people terrorists no one really cares anymore.  When we see a real terrorist you call us racist if they aren’t Christian or have a slightly darker skin color.  Doesn’t matter he just tried to kill a bunch of people, we’re being racist if we label him a terrorist.

I’m seriously sick of this bullshit and hypocrisy.  When I see a man, I see exactly that, a man, nothing more.  He has his own ideas and character and if I call into question either of those things and his skin is a different color than my own I suddenly become racist?

Tell me, am I not allowed to judge a man by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin?  Because it seems everyone is insisting I judge by the color of their skin and ignore his actions and character.

And lets not forget about being called women haters and otherwise being disparaging towards women either; yet those who want to disarm women get a free pass when they say things like the following:

“I just want to say that, actually statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun,” Hudak said during the hearing. “And, chances are that if you would have had a gun, then he would have been able to get that from you and possibly use it against you.”

Not to mention the commentary by Joseph Salazar and the recommendation that women should just piss themselves to fend off attackers by the University of Colorado.

Seriously, WTF!?  How am I the racist misogynist pig in this debate?  How am I the person who hates women or those of a different race?  How is it that my desire to have equal access to arms is a racist or misogynistic tendency?  Someone explain to me how treating every individual as being an equal is treating them as being unequal.  I don’t freaking see it and frankly I’m getting down right pissed at those telling me I am while claiming women should just lie back and think of England.

Because evidently it’s a misogynistic to prefer a woman standing over the cooling body of her attacker in an alley instead of lying brutally beaten and raped with her rapist running away to possibly never be caught.

Because evidently it’s racist to want minorities to have the same rights as everyone else.  It’s racist to want those to have arms to defend themselves from the same threats any of us may face.

Why didn’t anyone tell me I was back in 3rd grade and it is opposite day?

Quote of the Day–Joe Huffman (3/8/2013)

I want to see the day, perhaps 20 years from now, when people are brought to trial for the crimes they are committing today. By the advocating the infringement of the specific enumerated right to keep and bear arms they caused the foreseeable, needless, injuries and deaths of tens of thousands and they should be brought to justice for that.

Joe HuffmanConspiracy to Infringe

March 7th, 2013

[I’m glad I’m not the only one with that line of thinking or that dream.

It becomes increasingly more and more obvious that many of those who clamor for “mandatory training requirements” often don’t want training to be provided in schools.  It’s obvious they aren’t actually interested in educating people but creating a method to infringe on the rights of others.  For that reason anyone who argues for “training requirements” to exercise a right should have their advocacy used against them at their trial.  –B]

Quote of the Day – Massad Ayoob (3/5/2013)

The gun allows the poor and powerless to protect themselves as well as the rich and powerful. It is axiomatic in our country that any citizen should be able to become President. A poor kid raised by his grandparents recently did so, and got re-elected.  He and his family are surrounded by Secret Service agents with high cartridge capacity firearms. Us ordinary po’ folks don’t have heavily armed security guards provided by taxpayer funding to guard us and our families like Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, or Michael Bloomberg.  How sad and ironic that the poor kid who grew up to be President doesn’t want your potential-future-President kids to be protected as his own potential-future-President children are.

Equality. Freedom. Guns.

Yes, they all do belong in the same sentence.

(Emphasis Mine.)
Massad Ayoob – Guns And Equality
March 4th, 2013

[First go RTWT, it’s short and honestly worth the time.  Second I couldn’t agree more with his final statement.  Those three words belong together, the last word allows you to shield and protect the first two.

I am always amazed that some consider firearms as being an un-equalizer.  Often those who do have made a choice not to carry and look for an excuse for where to lay blame.  A gun is merely a tool and a quite effective one at that.  While some may use it for evil, many more use it for good.  The physical prowess of the operator though is much more diminished, while one could say that allows someone to more easily embrace a life of crime, the same could be said about allowing a small weaker person fend off a larger stronger person.

It’s all about perspective and our opponents focus on the criminal as if the gun causes the crime, completely disregarding all of those who would have been maimed or killed fending off their attackers.

One side wants everyone to be equal and have a choice in the tools for their defense.  Others want to dictate the choice of tools, last I checked, dictating terms isn’t a sign of someone who thinks the other is their equal. -B]


Quote of the Day – Sebastian (3/1/2013)

Do our opponents still want to continue to operate under the delusion they are fighting the evil gun industry and some faceless “gun lobby” rather than millions of their fellow Americans? Do they still want to suggest we’re all the stereotype of the OFWG? Want to continue to pretend all this is manufactured when most of these people are carrying homemade signs?

If yes, I understand. The illusion is important to you. Because the alternative is that you want to take something very important away from millions of people who care deeply and passionately about it, and that, well, kind of makes you a monster, doesn’t it?
