Assault Weapon Ban Irrelevant

FBI Statistics
Although anti-gun advocates are pushing to ban what they call "assault weapons" (AKA semi-automatic rifles), there is an interesting fact they omit from their discussions. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) suggests that people are more likely to be murdered by hands, fists, feet, other than by a rifle. Here is the FBI chart that illustrates this point:

What It Reveals
This chart shows that the number one weapon is a handgun - not a rifle. The vast majority of gun-related murders are committed by handguns. So why are the Anti-2nd Amendment proponents pushing so hard against rifles? The chart also shows that knives are much more dangerous than rifles. Why not ban knives instead?

Progressives can't argue because the facts make them look like the fools that they are. They also miss the point that no matter what type of weapon used, a deranged person will still be able to commit heinous crime.

Focus Is Wrong
Should the Gun Banners be taking a look at the "CAUSE" instead of the "Means?" Years ago it was fairly easy to get people committed into psychiatric wards. The pendulum has changed and now it's next to impossible without crossing many many roadblocks. This needs attention. If unbalanced people continue walking the streets, no BAN will prohibit them from committing these types of crimes.

Gun Banners also forget the serious influence the MSM has, as well as, Hollywood, and the entire video gaming industry. All of these are factors in promoting violence in our society. Should they actively do something to these industries?

Action To Take
After updating your membership to the NRA, you need to contact your representatives in Washington and let them know you oppose of ANY NEW gun laws. We would ENFORECE the ones we already have.

Get Off The Fence

New Members
The National Rifle Association (NRA) has seen a spike in membership since the Sandy Hook massacre last week. It is reported that they are averaging about 8,000 new members each day. New members realize that the Constitutional right is being threatened by the Obama administration.

Obama' s Solution 
Yesterday, President Obama designated the famous gun banner (VP Joe Biden), to lead a Federal task force to propose NEW & TOUGHER GUN LAWS. Recall that Biden was the author of the 1994 GUN Control Act which lasted 10 years and did little to stop criminals from obtaining weapons. It did however, create more hurdles for law abiding citizens to obtain firearms.

Gun Sales
The increase in NRA memberships also coincides with a tremendous increase in gun sales - specifically AR-15s. THANK OBAMA for that one! Walmart sold-out of AR-15s and the demand continues at all gun dealers. Gun owners are expecting the worst from the government and probably have good reason for that feeling. It's becoming quite clear that Progressive want to BAN ALL GUNS!

Missing The Point
Apparently, Progressives ignore some of the true CAUSES for these massacres and use the tragedy to push their agenda of banning all guns. Why even FOX TV's Bill O'Reilly wants to see lawful citizens be forced to REGISTER all "Assault Weapons" - whatever they are. O'Reilly doesn't even know the difference between an "AR-15" or an "AK-47", but admits that he has and will use a hand gun to protect himself.

O'Reilly sees nothing wrong with gun registration. What O'Reilly doesn't know is that registration is the first step to confiscation. A look at world history proves that point. He's just another "PINHEAD" making stupid suggestions.

Action To Take
If you support the Second Amendment, you need to support the NRA with your membership. If you own a firearm of any type, you also need to become an NRA member. Here's How:

Does Anybody Care Anymore?

We had 4 Americans killed. That was in September. The State Department ordered a thorough investigation. Hillary Clinton (Secretary of State) created the "Accountability Review Board" to investigate who was responsible for the failings in the department. OK, sounds like a good idea, but isn't Hillary one of the persons who should be investigated as well?

After weeks of "investigation," the Accountability Review Board declared that no one was responsible for the government bungling that resulted in the four deaths. Instead, they pointed their fingers to the Libyan government who were "On Strike" at the time of the attacks. They were supposedly the ones who were in charge of providing our ambassador bodyguards. Look how that turned out!

Do You Believe These Lies?
This administration is getting so good at distorting the truth, that they even believe their own lies! Can you actually believe ANY findings that were sponsored by the key person in charge of the government office being investigated? That's at the very minimum, a conflict of interest.

Now Hillary won't even testify to Congress because of illness. How convenient! They (the Obama administration) believe that Americans have a short memory and shorter attention span. In fact, that's what they're counting on to get their "ass" out of yet ANOTHER cover up.

Action To Take
Demand answers to YOUR questions - like "Who ordered our troops to stand-down"? Make that person helped accountable for these four deaths. If it was Hillary, so be it!

Stay Focused America

Wrong Direction
All the Internet chatter is focusing on the Connecticut massacres. The media is bombarding viewers and listeners with 24/7 coverage of the latest mass murders. We all grieve this evil, but we are also being saturated with it as well.

Once again, the Corrupt media is leading the anti-gun cause instead of keeping the focus on the lying and cover ups coming out of the White House. It's truly ironic that we know more about the Murders than we do about the Assassinations in Benghazi or the botched sale of guns to Mexican drug cartels.

The media would rather represent their agenda, instead of accurately reporting facts about these two BIG Government scandals. Instead of that, they ignore them both and just brush-off Hillary's excuse for not testifying in front of Congress.

Stay Focused
Keep your eye on the political football. There has been a shift of focus and it's diverting your attention away from the Obama Blunders.  Why isn't the administration cooperating with Congress? They have stonewalled the Fast and Furious investigation for 2 over years? Eric Holder lied and was held for Contempt of Congress. Did someone in the administration break the law in the administration besides Holder? Who was it?  Don't let Obama white-wash over the fact that HE botched the gun deal and he's protecting his AG from any wrong doing. Why the cover-up? He claims it's for national security. That's BS and we know it.

Why hasn't Congress been able to find-out what really happened in Benghazi and who is accountable? We are four months out from the assignations and we still don't have any accountability from either the White House or the State Department.

Why Not? We need answers!

Guest Article - It's NOT Guns!

The Newtown Killings
by Roger Ebert

"What's different about about the Newtown Massacre? Not very much. On top of the Columbine tragedy, the Batman "homage" and so on and so on, it still doesn't even have its own Twitter hashtag. I haven't had the heart to look for any theme music that has been drummed up for cable news.

Of course there are already countless reports among innumerable op-ed contributors. I can't even use that angle. Nor can I exploit my use of the word "angle." Nor am I much interested in "thinkers" from the world's pundits and pulpits about what this means, if anything, about American society as a whole. I have no doubt, of course, there have been media roundups on how Fox News has covered the story.

It goes without saying that the suspected shootings "rehearsed a familiar scenario." I haven't yet read that that any big weekend TV shows have yet been dropped by networks. The Sunday morning TV news talk shows haven't yet assembled their expert "panels" about about the deaths of 26 innocent murdered people, 20 of them in grade school. Were "grief counselors" called in to speak with the families?

Is this a heartless cynical way to approach Newtown? No doubt it is. In my opinion the most useful way to "analyze" is to repeat. I would like to quote the following words from an article by me that was excerpted under another byline, as follows:

"From his review of Gus Van Sant's 'Elephant', a fictionalized account of a Columbine-like school shooting, here's Roger Ebert on the media's behavior while reporting these kinds of events:

"Let me tell you a story. The day after Columbine, I was interviewed for the Tom Brokaw news program. The reporter had been assigned a theory and was seeking sound bites to support it. "Wouldn't you say," she asked, "that killings like this are influenced by violent movies?" No, I said, I wouldn't say that. "But what about 'Basketball Diaries'?" she asked. "Doesn't that have a scene of a boy walking into a school with a machine gun?"

"The obscure 1995 Leonardo Di Caprio movie did indeed have a brief fantasy scene of that nature, I said, but the movie failed at the box office (it grossed only $2.5 million), and it's unlikely the Columbine killers saw it.

"The reporter looked disappointed, so I offered her my theory. "Events like this," I said, "if they are influenced by anything, are influenced by news programs like your own. When an unbalanced kid walks into a school and starts shooting, it becomes a major media event. Cable news drops ordinary programming and goes around the clock with it. The story is assigned a logo and a theme song; these two kids were packaged as the Trench Coat Mafia. The message is clear to other disturbed kids around the country: If I shoot up my school, I can be famous. The TV will talk about nothing else but me. Experts will try to figure out what I was thinking. The kids and teachers at school will see they shouldn't have messed with me. I'll go out in a blaze of glory."

"In short, I said, events like Columbine are influenced far less by violent movies than by CNN, the NBC Nightly News and all the other news media, who glorify the killers in the guise of "explaining" them.

"I commended the policy at the Sun-Times, where our editor said the paper would no longer feature school killings on Page 1. The reporter thanked me and turned off the camera. Of course the interview was never used. They found plenty of talking heads to condemn violent movies, and everybody was happy."

This is Ebert again. I gather my point is what goes around, comes around."

Here They Come

Gun Rights Being Attacked
Leading the latest charge to confiscate and ban guns in the USA is none other than our own Attorney General Eric Holder. It's truly ironic that he has said that "WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES SOME HARD QUESTIONS’ ABOUT GUN RIGHTS AFTER CONN. SHOOTINGS."

Why is that ironic you say? Have you forgot that this is the same guy who perjured himself in front of Congress (under oath) when he LIED about "Fast and Furious." He was cited by Congress for Contempt of Congress. The chief law enforcement officer of the nation is a LIAR! Fast and Furious was the government sponsored program that allowed Mexican Drug Cartels to purchase weapons here in the US so they could illegally transport them to Mexico and use them there. Holder condoned that program and Obama protected him!

Holder now wants to ban guns! THAT'S just incredible!

Out Of The Woodwork
The massacre that killed 27 people on Friday doesn't stop gun banners from blowing their horn. It brings them out in greater numbers. The victims haven't been buried yet and the Anti-Gunners are busy calling for Banning guns. They have NO RESPECT for the families and victims.

Look who these people are. They are Secular Progressives. These are the same people who have been chipping away on YOUR liberties since 1913! They know that less guns doesn't equate to fewer murders. They just want MORE CONTROL over YOUR lives. The Founders wanted citizens to have guns to protect themselves from an overbearing government. Many government Progressives have personal body guards who are armed for their protection. These people don't want YOU to have ANY personal protection because that gives them control to tell you what to do.

The REAL Objective
This isn't just about banning firearms or safety. It's about controlling you and manipulating the masses. It's about the destruction of YOUR liberties. Don't be fooled. If they ban guns, crime will get worse because ONLY criminals will have guns. The perfect example is the United Kingdom (UK). Since they banned guns in the UK, crime has increased tremendously. What's worse, is that the government will have it easier to "regulate" your behavior. They will have no fear of uprisings when their citizens have no guns.

Action To Take
If you have a firearm and have NOT joined the National Rifle Association (alias the NRA), you need to join. It's $35 per year and your support helps protect YOUR LAWFUL RIGHT to own a gun. Here's how: Please do it today!
