” Why what is happening in Connecticut matters to any American who values what our founders and forefathers fought for, as has every soldier since.
A State Government (CT) seeks to physically take our guns and 1st and 2nd amendments from its own citizens without any Constitutionality. Know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE, America is with you!
Our so called movement leaders feel safe to talk the tough talk and regale on the tumult of the times we live….. but will you stand firmly and speak straight when it is time to back up the claims we make, most won’t, will You?
Will you stand your ground knowing your outcome is grim and most likely fatal? Would you fight knowing you will fall, never seeing the glory for which you fought (but you will have peace, are we already fighting in spiritual chains)?
Would you give up everything, your life for the idea we call Freedom and Liberty?And not in suicide, but in American Glory! The second amendment is a serious one. People died for this idea to even exist let alone be remembered by us today because they wouldn’t give up their guns when they were told to so. Lexington and Concord are case and point: it wasn’t just one person, an individual…… these were men of purpose who quickly formed up and just went knowing full well that they might die that day with Free Will and God in their heart.
We may be called to serve that duty because they have compelled us to the separation….. Remember your oath! Might you be called to kill for it? What does the BILL OF RIGHTS mean to you?
(Aside) Military men, you know this in spades! You have been there. Educate the people around you, be the leader you swore an oath to be!
“ In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” — Thomas Jefferson
We can’t be alone in this, we have to come to each other’s aide. An unjust act demands a measured and just response so overwhelming it could turn from conflagration to politics to melee and retaliation in the instant it begins. They want you divided to separate you. They will come to your individual houses and take you with a squad knowing we will let it happen in our own neighborhoods and do nothing. We have to let them know that unconstitutional or tyrannical acts will be met with the full force of the second amendment itself! This will get ugly real fast.
It’s not in the news because they (who are they anyway? Fascism, Communism – both Socialism and Marxism) know what happens if you WAKE A SLEEPING GIANT! So, they hush it up.
They got really messed up the last time they tried to take us in WW2. With stories like this being squelched, might it be time to dust of your weapons and see if they still work?
Let us see if we can find the hero we have been calling for! He has been within us all along! It is you, and everyone else all around you that have to survive as well. It is us, WE ARE THE SLEEPING GIANT!
Have a response team (of friends, citizens, PATRIOTS) that moves to respond or even your neighborhood to take the long shots (old people can shoot too….. know your neighbors and find their plan and work together, know what they believe and think. Yes, we may become involved in something that has us not lasting long at all, we probably won’t even survive but understand people will see this as one of those times that changed the direction of History itself. By guns, politics or character assassination we will all take extreme hits from all directions but would you take the glory of standing for what you believe WITH YOUR LIFE?!?! To the solitude of chains????Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say ‘what should be the reward of such sacrifices?’ Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” —-Sam Adams
Tyrannical law and Unconstitutional acts are to be met with the ferocity of is natural manure at the foot of the Tree of Liberty! This will not stand! This is virtually uncovered in the big media, even on national television and FOX, this issue is one to unite us to 100 years more of quasi-peace or plunge us into a civil revolutionary war. (Up vs. Down vs. Right vs. Left vs. what is left of Americanism). You have no chance If you do nothing. If what you are doing is not working, do something else! DO ANYTHING ELSE!!!
My prediction – In the end of this stifled circus we will see the authorities back off. This is a tactic to see if we will stand and push back. It they know that we will not, they will start to roll on us hard from here knowing we will fold. We usually do fold, if not in the immediacy, we usually let our guard down eventually. There is such a concept as being “too free”. If they see that we are together and will stand, they will stand down and be in the periphery until they feel they can have another go at us. It’s the way bullies and communism have worked since its beginning.
I think and pray and hope with all my might that these people retract from this treasonous behavior, and when they do, we come after them with everything we can to take them from office by vote or any means necessary because un-American becomes Treason when you they actively, visibly and provably come to enslave you, that’s all they want really. Its simple!
AMERICA LIVES IN MY HEART AND IN MY HANDS!

” So, the rally we’ve mentioned before is now only a month away. Time to kick things into high gear!
On April 5, 2014, we’ll be gathering on the North side of the State Capitol Building at high noon to mark the first anniversary of the the signing of one of the most unconstitutional gun laws in the nation. Our keynote speaker will be noted gun rights activist and writer David Codrea. David has been featured in Guns and Ammo, Handguns, and Guns Magazine, where he writes the monthly “Rights Watch” column. He is also the National Gun Rights Examiner for Examiner.com, and writes the blog “The War on Guns”. He and Mike Vanderboegh (who spoke at our rally last year) were the ones that originally broke the story of Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious scandal.
We’ll have other speakers yet to be announced, as well as some candidates who we are hoping will oust the gun grabbers in November with your help.”
When: April 5, 2014 from noon until 3pm
Where: Capitol Building, 210 Capitol Avenue, Hartford, Connecticut 06106
Here is a link to parking information around the State House , a link for directions , and a link to the Cross Sound ferry should any Long Islanders want to make the trip . Please attend if you are able . Connecticut has become the front line in the battle for our rights and liberties and they need all the support we can muster .
” Georgia lawmakers are now considering passing the most extreme gun bill in America,” Pia Carusone, the group’s executive director, said in the release.
Knowing the many and varied gun measures that exist or are proposed across the nation, could Georgia really be looking at “the most extreme gun bill in America?” We wondered.”
” We decided to run the statement through the Truth-O-Meter.
On its website, the National Rifle Association calls HB 875 by state Rep. Rick Jasperse, R-Jasper, “the most comprehensive pro-gun reform legislation introduced in recent state history.”
We began by circling back to Giffords’ group to explain the claim that it is the most extreme legislation out there. Carusone said her group is tracking 200 gun bills in legislatures across the country, many of which “weaken common-sense gun violence prevention policies.” But none of the bills has “as many extreme provisions as we see in this one Georgia bill,” she said.
” Not only does the bill invite guns into virtually every public space, reversing 100-year-old regulations, it allows teachers to carry guns while teaching class and airplane passengers to attempt to bring guns through (Transportation Security Administration) security without consequence,” Carusone said. “It also would allow guns to be in courthouses. State legislation typically focuses on one of these issues, not all of them.”
Experts we checked with said there’s no evidence that, if the bill passes, Georgia would be considered to have the most lax gun laws. Four states, Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming, don’t even require a permit to carry a concealed weapon, they said.”
Politifact is no rightwing shill so when they are calling out the lies of the anti-gunners we should sit up and take notice . Readers , I’m sure , are aware of the hypocrisy that has been demonstrated by Gabrielle Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly when it comes to the subject of gun control and so should assume that anything that originates with their organization is highly suspect with regard to it’s factuality and this plea against Georgia’s “extreme” 2nd amendment reaffirmation is no exception .

” Members of the Massachusetts chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America deliver a petition with more than 12,000 signatures to Staples this morning asking for guns to be prohibited in their stores.
Members of the Massachusetts chapter of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America tried deliver a petition with more than 12,000 signatures at Staples headquarters in Framingham on Tuesday morning to Staples’ CEO but were asked to leave the property.”
Here’s the money quote …
“ The presence of firearms creates an inherent and unnecessary risk for Staples shoppers,” said Ann Krantz of Wenham and the communications lead for Moms Demand Action Massachusetts.
So they can’t see them but they need to ban them . Smart . A google search reveals no history of shootings at Staples stores other than the above mentioned accidental one in NC last summer and an undercover cop shooting a criminal in a Staples Parking lot .
While we couldn’t locate the annual number of customers Staples that walk through their doors with yearly sales in excess of $24 billion it is safe to say that at least one half million buyers enter the store on average in any given year . Since they’ve been in business since 1986 we have a low ball total of 13,500,000 customers with one accidental firearms mishap . That simple number reveals a minuscule chance of being harmed by a gun in Staples . Don’t these people have better things to do with their time ?

” A shocking poll released Tuesday shows overwhelming majorities of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey support a national gun registry.
The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry.
Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns.
NRA Spokesman Andrew Arulanandam pointed out that the poll appears skewed.
“ Given the exceptionally high numbers of support for President Obama and Hillary Clinton in this poll, it isn’t surprising that there would be high numbers of support for draconian gun control proposals,” he told me.
The poll does seem skewed with too many liberals and Democrats. None of the colleges said they asked party affiliation of the respondents.”
As we know depending on one’s methodology one can achieve whatever results one likes in polling , and while the colleges said that they didn’t ask party affiliation the fact is they don’t have to in order to bias things should they so desire . By doing a simple comparison of voting district results and area codes pollsters can report any results they would like .
The two northeastern states are dark blue to begin with and if the pollsters concentrated their calls to area codes linked to the metropolitan areas they are sure to get Hillary approval ratings of 60% and Obama 55% . The same goes for the cities in Virginia , and anywhere else for that matter , as most all urban areas of the US run decidedly to the left of the average .
Just reading the numbers off the poll illustration above shows large majority support for a veritable democrat wish list with the exception of Keystone and Obamacare . In fact,the results for those two policy issues help further document the bias as does the question of illegal immigration . If the polling respondents were a genuinely balanced group Keystone support and repeal of Obamacare would be much higher .
Does anyone believe that a poll that was truly representative of conservative voters would show 70-80% approval for Amnesty , universal free pre-k and raising the minimum wage ?
The interested reader can find what polling data the schools made public on about this survey here and here . It is of considerable interest that the average polling sample was only about 750 respondents and the demographics such that approximately 65% were childless , 75% non-gun owners and 53% female with an average margin of error of 3.6 .
Also , while the text of the article claims that the pollsters didn’t ask the respondent’s political affiliations , a quick glance at the Nature of the Samples provided says otherwise and finally if these polls offered the reader a truly unbiased screenshot of today’s electorate do you believe that Hillary would get 30-40% support for president when no one else who my be a potential candidate in 2016 can even reach double digits … except Christie but only in his home state ?
Think about that before you shed too many tears . Read the rest from Emily Miller .
Show them you care …
By newly proposed NJ law this is now an “assault” rifle … slippery slope ? Nah
” New Jersey has become ground zero this year for legislative battles over gun control.
The Brady Campaign ranked the state third in the nation for most restrictive firearms laws, yet anti-gun Democrats who control the legislature are determined to go all the way to gun bans and confiscation.
The New Jersey Assembly’s Law and Public Safety Committee was scheduled to hold a public hearing on Monday (postponed for snow) about a bill that reduces the maximum magazine capacity from 15 to 10.
Since the legislation covers both detachable and fixed magazines, it has the effect of to banning popular, low-caliber rifles.
They discovered that the bill would affect tube-fed, semi-automatic rifles because the magazine cannot be separated from the gun.
Just having one such gun would turn a law-abiding owner into a felon overnight.”
Emily Miller has more . From a state that banned certain pellet rifles this should come as little surprise . I guess the feeling among NJ pols is that their constituents are as corrupt as their leaders .
Watch our neighbors to the north . Gun owners are even under siege from their “allies” on the right .

As it so happens, Canada’s lawful gun owners had reason to be worried. But not about the Liberals. It’s the Tories who are seizing legally purchased firearms from law-abiding Canadian gun owners. And they aren’t even offering any cash in return.
As reported by Postmedia News, the guns in question are semi-automatic rifles manufactured by Swiss Arms. These rifles began arriving in Canada early in the last decade. Before they could be imported or sold in Canada, they had to be considered by the RCMP, to determine how they would be classified under Canadian law.

” GMN Producer Guerilla Girl Ashley contacted Connecticut State Police to inquire about the recent letter sent to residents regarding gun confiscation in Connecticut. “Sandy Hook” State Police Spokesman Lt. Vance answered the telephone and spoke to Ashley. The recording of the call reveals the shocking disregard this sworn peace officer has for the U.S. Constitution, and even goes so far as to call Ashley “un-American” for inquiring about the constitutionality of the gun confiscation law.

” Just when residents of San Diego thought they finally had won back the right to bear arms in the county, state politicians used dirty tactics to try to block it.
Late Thursday, California State Attorney General Kamala Harris filed a petition on behalf of the state to ask the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to review and reverse its decision in Peruta v. County of San Diego. That ruling two weeks ago said the county’s restrictive concealed carry permit laws that required “good cause” were unconstitutional.
This comes just one week after San Diego Sheriff Bill Gore said he would not seek en banc review and would start issuing permits based on self-defense once the appeals court decision was finalized.
Ms. Harris wrote in the filing that the state should be allowed to intervene in the case because “this case draws into question the constitutionality of the State’s statutory scheme regulating the public carrying of firearms.” She added that the “existing parties will not adequately represent the State’s interests.”
Chuck Michel is the west coast counsel for the National Rifle Association, which funded the lawsuit. He said Ms. Harris‘ motion to intervene was far out of line because her office wasn’t part of the lawsuit, despite repeated requests from both plaintiffs and Sheriff Gore to get involved. “
” U.S. gun makers led by Sturm Ruger & Co. and Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. (SWHC) churned out a record number of firearms in 2012, government data show, continuing a trend of robust production during Democratic presidencies.
More than 8.57 million guns were produced in 2012, up 31 percent from 6.54 million in 2011, according to data released this week by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which has been tracking the statistics since 1986.
Almost as many guns — 26.1 million — were produced during Democrat Barack Obama’s first term as president as during the entire eight-year presidency of his Republican predecessor, George W. Bush , the ATF data show.”

” Are schools and colleges dangerous places, with lots of gun violence?
Some groups paint a picture of these places being particularly unsafe. Supposedly both murders and firearm suicides are very common at educational institutions. Last Wednesday, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s two groups, Moms Demand Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, jointly released a report that received massive , uncritical , news , coverage .
They claimed that 44 shootings occurred in schools and colleges nationwide since the Newtown, Conn. massacre on Dec. 14, 2012 and Feb. 10 of this year. Out of the 44 shootings, a total of 28 died. To dramatize their numbers, Bloomberg’s groups emphasized that one of these attacks occurred every 10 days.
But their statistics are not what they seem. Included in the numbers are suicides. Also included are late night shootings taking place in school parking lots, on their grounds or even off school property, often involving gangs. As “shootings,” they also include any incident where shots were fired, even when nobody was injured.”
To illustrate their biased point of view in pursuit of their anti-gun agenda they have grossly misrepresented what constitutes a “school shooting” along the very same lines they use when talking about the deaths of “children” from guns . Below are some of what Bloomberg considers “school shootings” …
” • A student at Eastern Florida State College retrieved his gun from his car when two men attacked him. One of the men was striking the student with a pool cue, and the student fired his gun wounding him. The gun was legally stored in the student’s car and the police found that he had acted in self-defense.
• A 19-year-old was killed at 9pm in a field near the Hillside Elementary School in San Leandro, California.
• A professor at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology committed suicide in an empty classroom.
• A 23-year-old man committed suicide late at night on school grounds when no one was around the Algona High/Middle School in Iowa.
• A 38-year-old man was shot to death at 2am on the grounds of the Clarksville, Tennessee High School.
• A 19-year-old man committed suicide in the parking lot of a Portland, Maine high school. No one at the school was threatened.”
But even when the Statist media bends the statistics to suit their agenda they still cannot prove their contention that schools are becoming increasingly commonplace .
” Contrary to what many people believe, high school shootings have actually been falling over the last two decades . To illustrate this let’s compare the five school years 1992-93 to 1996-97 with the five school years from 2008-09 to 2012-13. During the first period, the number of non-gang, non-suicide shooting deaths averaged 25 a year. During the recent five-year period, it averaged less than half that, 10 per year – and that figure does include the horrific Newtown massacre.
It’s all about the narrative … truth doesn’t enter into it . The story continues at Fox News
” Remington first began considering new locations after the New York legislature passed the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act in response to the tragic shootings in Newtown, Conn. In addition to banning magazines that contain more than seven rounds and requiring instant background checks on ammo purchases, the NY SAFE Act broadened the definition of so-called “assault weapons” to include a wide range of guns, including the Bushmaster, which was being manufactured at Remington’s New York plant.
Almost half the states in the country have made pitches to Remington, included Arizona, Oklahoma, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. But in the end, the company chose Huntsville, Ala.
The initial estimated impact on Alabama’s economy will be roughly $87 million.”
Way to go Andy … it’s not like NY has jobs to spare , especially upstate . This move on Remington’s part is surely he beginning of the end for it’s Ilion operations and one wonders , will Kimber be next ?

” Several companies out there are currently working on innovative ways to allow New Yorkers to own things they should be able to own anyway.
Keep in mind, practical and useful may not always mean beautiful or perfect.
First off, and I’m sure you’ve seen this by now, we have a New York SAFE Act legal “AR-15″. The savvy gun owner can make their gun SAFE Act compliant by removing “military features” from the rifle.”
The politicians will never learn that private industry will always be more capable than them . For every idiotic action from the state house you’ll get an equal or greater reaction from warehouse . LOL

Anti Gunners Admit Their Policies Won’t Work!

” In their own words: Oregon anti gun politicians and activists admit that “universal background checks”, “assault weapons” ban, and “gun free zones” won’t work! Hear from Governor John Kitzhaber, Ceasefire Oregon’s Penny Okamoto, Gabrielle Gifford’s husband Mark Kelly, Portland Police officer Donna Henderson, state senator Ginny Burdick, and former (disgraced) Multnomah County Commissioner Jeff Cogen.”
” Manuel Martinez, fled communist Cuba gave Oregon lawmakers an earful at a recent hearing. Martinez, who was imprisoned in Cuba for opposing the Castro regime was able to escape Cuba in 1962.
“ They come here in those dog and pony show and cry that their going to protect people. You’re going to protect nobody! I want to know what is behind it? Do you know what is behind the problem we have in this country with it’s Marxism,” Martinez said.
He continues, saying “Marxism is not coming, Marxism is here! Marxism has been in this country for quite a while now. And the politicians allow that because they are ignorant or they’re part of the plot!”
“ Don’t sell me this. A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50-something years ago, I didn’t buy it, do you think I am going to buy it now?!” Martinez said. “This is Marxism, plain and clear.” “
Guns Save Lives has the complete story
” I’m the mayor of one of the largest cities in the Hudson Valley, just 90 minutes north of New York City. I’m a life member of the National Rifle Association and a former member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, or MAIG, started by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg in 2006.
I’m no longer a member of MAIG. Why? Just as Ronald Reagan said of the Democratic Party, it left me. And I’m not alone: Nearly 50 pro-Second Amendment mayors have left the organization. They left for the same reason I did. MAIG became a vehicle for Bloomberg to promote his personal gun-control agenda — violating the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens and taking resources away from initiatives that could actually work to protect our neighborhoods and save precious lives. Gun control will actually make a bad situation worse.
It did not take long to realize that MAIG’s agenda was much more than ridding felons of illegal guns; that under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens. I don’t believe, never have believed and never will believe that public safety is enhanced by encroaching on our right to bear arms, and I will not be a part of any organization that does.”

” New York’s affiliate of the National Rifle Association has seen its membership explode in the months since Gov. Andrew Cuomo passed new and strict gun control measures. Now, the state chapter has the largest membership roll in the country.
“ Membership growth over the past year has pushed [the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association] into the top spot over the Texas State Rifle Association and California Rifle & Pistol Association,” the chapter said on its website, Newsmax reported.
“I think it sends a message to all the anti-gun politicians, all the politicians sitting on the fence, that yes, if they thought that we were quiet and this was going to go away without anyone paying any more attention to it, they were just flat-out wrong,” Mr. King told the newspaper.”
