An East Texas police chief has cautioned the president against trying to enact further gun control measures and called upon all Americans, and particularly those in his tiny town, to arm themselves legally to withstand the threat of terror attacks or mass shootings on U.S. soil.
Police Chief Randy Kennedy sounded off in a video posted to Facebook after President Obama’s recent speech on terrorism, advising him to change his course, stating “if you try to disarm us, sir, then you will cause a revolution in this country to occur.”
Via the Associated Press:
A Texas police chief who warns President Barack Obama in a social media video that trying to disarm Americans would “cause a revolution in this country” is the latest law enforcement official to urge citizens to arm themselves in the wake of mass shootings.
Randy Kennedy, longtime chief in the small East Texas town of Hughes Springs, about 120 miles east of Dallas, says in the video posted this week on his personal Facebook page that the Second Amendment was established to protect people from criminals and “terrorists and radical ideology.”
“It’s also there to protect us against a government that has overreached its power,” Kennedy says in the video.
Many others have expressed similar sentiments about Obama’s actions, and it has become less uncommon for sheriffs and local law enforcement officials to speak out against the President, particularly when it comes to issues like the 2nd Amendment and immigration.
Police Chief Kennedy started by expressing his disappointment with the latest moves from the White House to enact gun control as a reaction to terrorism.
Here’s what the chief said in the video:
“I watched President Obama tonight and heard what he had to say about confronting terrorism, and I didn’t find his words encouraging at all.”
“As law enforcement, we cannot protect every single one of you, we can’t be there all the time. We can’t be everywhere all the time. And especially in a rural community where we have limited manpower and limited resources. So as such, I am encouraging you strongly to arm yourselves. We need to send a message to the criminal element as well to these terrorists and these jihadi who want to murder in the name of their god, and the criminal element that want to go out, you know, and just totally destroy our way of life.”
“Because I know that we as law enforcement do the very best we can to protect our citizens, and we do a good job. But I know if the tables are ever turned on me, or one of my officers, that I want one of my citizens, or a group of my citizens coming to our aid and rescue – and I don’t want you running out of bullets and I don’t want you running out of guns before you pull our bacon out of the fire.”
“Now Mr. Obama, you need to understand what the 2nd Amendment is for. It is not for hunting. It is there for the American people to protect themselves against the criminal element, to protect themselves against terrorists and radical ideology, and it’s also there to protect us against a government that has overreached its power.”
“You are not our potentate, sir. You are our servant. And you were elected to serve and protect us first. And I suggest, sir, since you’re a constitutional expert, that you better review your history on the Constitution and understand that we are a free people. And we are subject to no one other than the almighty God and Jesus Christ the King. And as such, sir, I strongly encourage you to trust the law-abiding American citizen, because we won’t fail you and we won’t let you down. But if you try to disarm us, sir, then you will cause a revolution in this country to occur. So please revise your thinking, because we are not your enemy, the law-abiding gun owner in this country.”
He reiterated his recommendation that all Americans arm themselves, cautioning “Be ready when the wolf comes to the door, because it’s on its way.”

While the mainstream media is reporting on President Obama’s next wave of executive orders on gun control, the AP notes that this past Black Friday was the single biggest day ever for FBI background checks for firearms purchases:
The FBI said last week that it processed a record number of firearms background checks on Black Friday, the busy shopping time the day after Thanksgiving. The agency processed 185,345 background checks – roughly two per second – the same day that three people were killed and nine others wounded in an attack at a Planned Parenthood office in Colorado.
The previous record for the most background checks in a single day was Dec. 21, 2012, about a week after 20 children and six adults were shot to death in a Connecticut elementary school. The week following the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary saw the processing of 953,613 gun background checks.
Here are a few of the thoughts of the founding fathers on where the line should be drawn on the possession of firearms in a free country:
The Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” – James Madison, The Federalist, No. 46
“If circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens.” – Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist, No. 29
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government… God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms…. The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” – Thomas Jefferson, various

The second amendment is the only thing we have left of this regimes distruction of our liberties
It might be all we have to regain back all the rights we’ve lost to this bag of hot air
I’ll go down alone if it has to be that way
Than it will be my offspring these jerks will have to worry about . And I can guarantee they won’t be as patient as I have been once they see that all I’ve told them is the truth
Does the Texas Governor and other Texas leaders have the gumption to declare secession when Obama overreaches (again)?
At least if the check is in the mail
Imagine ONE MILLION gun owners in New York State in 100,000 ten man FREEDOM CELLS ….. they could eliminate the New World Order overnight ….. and at 500 yards, before a Rogue Administration could muster enough mercenaries to protect itself.
“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice”. 🙂
I’m kinda passed the point of giving a fuck what they’d call me
Ditto, am there
I wear them as BADGES!
dk… dream on about the 500 yard shot. most would be at 200-300 max. most hunters don’t have 2500$ scopes. and don’t understand bullet drop, windage, and temp.
500 isn’t an impressive shot, and you certainly don’t need $2500 scopes to do it.
When I was younger and my eyes better I could do that with open sights on a 12 x 18 steel gong, do it all the time now when I shoot rifles with my simple Savage 110 in 30-06 or FAL in .308 (not exactly exotic rifles). The savage has a 200 dollar Nikon and the FAL a 150 dollar Weaver (both bought a number of years ago, prices may have gone up some).
Not all that much skill or high precision firearms required at 500, but the farther you go beyond that the more skill and precision of the rifle is necessary. Not a whole lot of people can do a thousand yards, and most of those who can can’t do it consistently (I have to include myself in that group, one out of three is about the best I can do at a thousand yards and when I’m doing it in meters instead of yards that drops to about one out of five).
Most people are going to have a harder time finding somewhere to practice shooting 500 yards than will have a problem learning to do the shot/
(Why the steel gong? I get rather tired of running back and forth over 500 yards to change targets in rough terrain. That’s over a half mile round trip and I’m pretty old now.)
7mm mag and 300.00 scope is all that is necessary and a host of other calipers will do the same thing, I have dropped deer at 500 yards
What the hell are you talking about? 100,000 ten man cells (groups). That is so far away from realistic. DK, you make great comments about financials, stick to what your good at.
If they had any guts they would have already seceded.
Texas recently just voted down a succession proposal – Texas Politicians knows who their masters are and don’t have the balls to remove themselves from the Union.
Maybe the Texas politicians will vote again in 2016 to secede.
If you ask permission to leave the empire…
Movements like this usually take time and multiple efforts before the succeed.
If they don’t die the first time they gain more support every time they try until they win if the conditions that brought the original attempt aren’t corrected.
This was the case with our own founding, it took a long time for the independence movement to grow large enough to actually accomplish the split from the British Crown.
Divide and conquer is an old tactic. The
states need to stay together. If one gets cut out of the herd it becomes easier for the wolves to take it down.
Secession is going to be on the March Republican ballot. It won’t be binding, but will make for a great public opinion poll.
Also, Texas is taking steps for secession. The Texas Gold Depository is the only State depository in the nation. Texas is repatriating their gold as a first step of issuing it’s own currency when the SHTF.
(Texas hasn’t figured out that the gold is gone and the vaults are empty.)
Also, Texas has it’s own electrical grid. There are only three grids in the nation. East, West and Texas. When Texas runs low on power, it gets it from Mexico.
Texas did this to get away from the FEDERAL overreach and the EPA.
Makes good sense for secession too.
In part yes but the powers of Mexico are with the powers of the US. They have been working together for decades now on destabilizing the US, so why would they help
Texas against their partner the US, in creating the NWO?
that is sorta true.
the texas power grid got its’ start with the vast amount of energy needed along the gulf coast to power the chemical and oil refining industries that were springing up. there was no grid in place and what there was was sorely lacking. so these companies simply generated their own. and in the process generated more than they needed. this overage created the texas utility grid.
in 1935 when FDR passed some type of federal power regulation act of some sort, the texans, rightly, saw that if they did not connect to a grid outside of texas state borders, the act did not apply to them.
hence, as you say, texas has it’s own grid, except for the panhandle, el paso, and the eastern edge along toledo bend.
They voted down to have the secession question on the ballot in March, saw a video on that yesterday.
Texas politicians just recently voted down the most recent secession initiative, according to something I read on brietbart.com or somewhere else.
Texas voters seem to have an irritating habit of electing politicians who are blow-hards and who will huff and puff and talk the talk and adopt a clearly false image of the ‘No Nonsense’ Texan of yesteryear – pretending as if they were cut from the same kind of metal as were the Texans of the 1800s. But, its all a comical act. A huge and embarrassing put on.
Whenever these phony Texas politicians have an opportunity to put their votes where their mouths are, they always fold up like a cheap suitcase and morph into the typical, gutless, emasculated, nauseating establishment weasel who ‘goes along to get along’.
Your post points up the truth about Texas; and it goes to the heart of all local, state, fed elections.
I miss your honest posts. Keep them coming.
I AGREE WE TEXANS NEED TO TAKE A VOTE TO SESEEDE AND DO OUR CONSTITUTION, THOSE IN THE SRVICES WHO WANT TO STAY; TELL THEM TO DISCHARGE THEM. GET THE FEDS OUT OF OUR STATE UNTILL OUR GOVT GETS ALL THOSE OUT OF THE TOP OF OUR GOVT THROWN OUT. IF NOT LET THOSE PRINTING TEXAS COIN DOLLARS CONTINUE UP THERE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS AND LET THESE US DOLLARS WRITTEN ON A BUNCHE OF NO VALUE BE BOXED UP AND SENT BACK TO FED RESERVE. NOT BACKED BY GOLD SHOULD BE TP PAPER……..
Enemy….With you all the way
EOTS, spot on. The 2A is the only thing left that stands between us and the regime. I’m ready to give up my life for liberty if necessary. Surrender is not an option for me. Not even in my vocabulary.
I hope there’s several million others just like you, B.H.
US, let’s ALL hope there’s several million others like me. We’ll need all the armed patriots we can get. I believe we can count on a lot of veterans to join us. I hope we can get some active-duty military to join us also. I keep hearing that a huge percentage of them are against Obama and looking for any opportunity to act against him.
Let’s also hope for a large SUPPORT TEAM of “less-than-battle-ready” patriots too. Someone needs to keep the camp functioning, the food warm and the rounds reloaded…
Jesus, what dreamers you are, like you’re all really going to fight some armed conflict with all of you over 60 years old. You wouldn’t last a week, if even that long. There’s a big difference between actually living the experience as opposed to sitting inside the warm and comfortable house with a full stomach and nobody shooting at you while you outline your big resistance on your keyboards. What you all fail to consider is all you have are isolated people with small arms, and even if you did manage to group together a few thousand in one place all you would be is a large target for some drones with missiles or chemical weapons or even small nuclear battlefield weapons. And please, don’t try the nonsense that you’ll shoot them out of the sky beforehand, they fly to high for your pathetic rifle rounds to reach them even if you did know they were coming. No, all this amounts to is a fart in a windstorm, nothing but hot air. At least you could use your hot air to fuel a possible balloon getaway because that’s the only resource you’ve got a monopoly on, the rest, just dreams and fantasy, the stories children tell each other because the truth is too unpleasant to face.
I’m in my early 30s. You obviously have no understanding of how a guerrilla insurgency works or history for that matter. The North Vietnamese with nothing more than their pajamas and AKs managed to win the war against the American war machine. If I’m not mistaken were still fighting the against elements of the Taliban in Afghanistan who are simply not much more than goat herders with rifles. Never underestimate an inferior fighting force if that force is fighting for what they believe in their heart to be right.
The Vietnamese had the support of China, the Soviet Union, and after the Tet offensive, the political support of a large portion of the American people. They were far more than guys wearing pajamas with machine guns. Their leadership had the patience to out wait the impatient Americans, after America got tired of the turmoil the war was creating at home they simply declared peace and left altogether, allowing the Vietnamese to walk right in and take over the country with minimal opposition. The American congress refused to provide additional aid for Vietnam and that sealed the fate of south Vietnam. Please research some history before telling anyone about the Vietnam war again, Thank you.
What’s the alternative. Public office where you become part of the machine. Domestic terrorists where you become part of the problem. Individual where your voice is drowned out by the machine. What’s the solution? Please tell me.
Anon, only politicians, banksters, bureaucrats, and trolls put out hot air, so go stuff it.
Bullshit. What we really have is a sleeping giant. For better or worse, hopefully better. You have no idea the movement that would go if they pushed too hard.
We have yet to see the genius of the 2nd Amendment. It amazes me that men had the foresight to put into place a protection that would not be implemented until generations after their time. A free people pwn guns.
Do you notice how the culture is keep you afraid. Keep you thinking the government has the power and is in control. No. All and I mean ALL the power resides with the people, if they (we) ever had the balls to use it.
Ken, the only movement there’s going to be is a bowel movement. It’s really easy to play the tough talking warrior on the keyboards but when it comes down to being killed or put in jail, 95 percent of these internet heroes will surrender. Anybody who’s over 50 won’t last in combat conditions outside for long, it’s foolish to think they’ll do anything but give up when faced with the alternative. They’ll realize that when it really happens, not here on some prepper website, everything here is all talk, nothing, and I do mean nothing more.
And who will be firing those chemical weapons? Who’s flying those drones? Who’s launching those nuclear weapons?
US citizens. Listed men and women.
You truly think our armed forces will have no qualms about mindlessly “following orders” in the face of all out civil war? Their families, brothers, sisters, people who look just like them. Maybe even people in the towns they grew up in.
You truly think there wont be mass dissension and desertion when they are handed orders to bomb the very towns they grew up in?
The people who will be bombing us will be UN troops controlled by the Jewish mafia.
Every front line needs a supply line.
I read somewhere recently that the first revolution was 3% fighting and 10% supporting, your spot on…
Every Gun Shop has a picture of Obama as salesman of the year.
No Matter What You Do…Good or Bad matters Not, for They Are Going to Call You Raysiss-White Seperatists-KKK Hate Mongers-Them what wants a return of Slavery and wishes to lynch mob hang negros again-Antisemites what wants to kill Six Million More-and whatever else their evil kommie deluded minds can conjur up…So…At This Point in Time..
You May as Well..Go…ALL…OUT!!
So what’s stopping you? Or is it just easier to do all your killing from your keyboard? You couldn’t hurt a fly, much less anything else. You can always tell, the older the geezer, the tougher the talk. Go on and have the nurse change your diaper now before you get pee sores again.
I’m 27, and I’ll slit your throat.
I believe there are lots of us, and most of them are NOT voicing there intentions because they are afraid of being taken out in a slow steady process, so when the time comes they WILL stand up and our numbers will be overwhelming, kind of like the GOP and the libtards cannot understand why Trump is doing so well, the people have had enough of the lies and crap from the Washington politicians and banksters and are ready to throw out the scum and start over !!
OH forgot, I am with you all the way, my freedom is worth my life! AMEN!!
I am with you on that!
Strongly agreed. Feel the same way. If we loose the 2A the rest of them will be gone too.
THE REPUBIC LEADERSHIT
SEYZ WE CANT WIN ANYMORE WITH ONLY THE WHITE VOTE. THEY WANT US TO GO ALONG WITH IMMIGRATION TO APPESE THE MINORITIES. IN WHICH CARE WE WILL HAVE AN EVEN BIGGER WELFARE STATE SUCKING US DOWN, MORE COMPETITION FOR JOBS, AND A BIGGER FREE SHIT ARMY.
WHY IN THE ACTUAL FUCK DID YOU SHITHOLING BABY BOOMERS LET THESE FUCKING NON-WHITES INTO THE COUTNRY IN THE FIRST PLACE? HOW THE FUCK DO IMMIGRANTS BENIFIT US?
WHITE POWER IS A HORRIBLE THING TO SAY? WELL TELL ME WHERE I’M WRONG USING LOGIC AND NOT FUCKING EMOTION. SERIOUSLY, FUCK OFF AND DIE BABY BOOMERS. YOU CREATED THIS FUCKING MESS.
MULTICULTURALISM HAS NEVER FUCKING WORKED ANY FUCKING WHERE EXCEPT SVIZZERA.
Acid, it’s time for mommy to put you back on your meds and put you to bed. TPTB put this country in the situation it’s in, not us. What part of that don’t you understand?
Acid Etch: in 1965 when the imigration fed laws got Changed to what we NOW Have….I was 12 yrs old! I will now be 63 Next Month aka January 2016.
What great political endevors did YOU do at age 12?
Our parents didnt have internet, all they had was already totally controlled TV news and newspapers and magazines like Time or newsweek et al etc.
And if even One in a thousand of Them back then even knew how every facet of usa fed govnt as well as all forms MSM infos were so controlled? boy they sure did a great job hideing it from Us kids then…
In other words a TINY small insignificant FEW like McCarthy and a couple brave others tried to alert usa folks back then to what we WOULD see happen Now.
But due to an Overwhelming plethora of constant bashing every such truth teller such as McCarthy, and look what happened to that southern govner running for Prez..George Wallace..He also alerted our Parents and us at age 12 to 14 yrs old or so…He got shot in stomach and paralysed from waist down for life.
Look at later guys such as David Duke…He held state rep elected office twice in Lauisanna state(sp I know I am bad at it so fuckin what)…Duke is Now a PHD Historian.
A very succesfull book writer/seller etc.
Yet every time hes invited to go on TV news like fox or cnn shows…They have 5-6 More antigun-antiwhite-khazar kommies on with duke to totally bash every word he utters.
todays news and tv news totally “David Dukes” Every pro usa or pro gun or pro white person that exists.
So Hows about YOUR youth Gen invent Plans to BOOT OUT all current Khazar tribe which makes up at least 90% of every face You see on TV news shows regardless the tv station or channel….And maybe THEN we old guys can Join You youth guys as a team effort eh.
Because as long as american fed govnt and its totality of News/Info/MSM in ALL forms avail remain Hijacked under khazar tribe controls…And Oh YES it certainly IS, to all the idiotc naysayers and tribe worshippers here….
NOTHING is going to get better period.
Humans by their very nature Must get their infos from somewheres…before can make wize decisisions like for whom to vote for etc…What to believe is real Truth etc.
Well americans has been under a khazar spell of pure cultural marxist evil since before I was born!
WE aint to blame…Our Grand parents are and our parents too….But 99% of them were UNwiting participants in their own dumbing downs, and so was we too untill RECENTLY when finally real truth has gotten Passed the MSM and Govnt censors….Kinda, sorta…Online truth info has ONLY been avail for aprox One Dozen years so far acid etch.
So what exactly do You not as yet get?
Ever had the idea that just maybe TPTB as most calls them, Planned to Wait untill us boomers reached old age before acting out their nefarious evil plans that they had already planned for at least the last 100 years or more now?..Because they knew if they tried this crap when us boomers were YOUR age we probably would have hit streets running and gunning and dragged their evil asses out of work or homes to hang them all.
like you say acid…We Boomers gen Are Old now…Not 90 yrs old,old…but most is too old to act like 25 year olds any longer….Maybe You acid should have been Typing online to alert US boomers when YOU were a tiny small 3 year old kid eh?…Maybe YOU is who failed by not alerting boomers when you was 3 yrs old eh?
Back to crying like a baby and making excuses, eh? ” It ain’t OUR fault!” No, nothing is ever the fault of your generation, and you didn’t do jack shit when you were 12 years old either, just like now, only difference being you fight all your battles on a keyboard. Wow, what a warrior YOU are lol…
Hope this isn’t over your ignorant head….
“When the debate is lost, slander is thee tool of the loser.” (Socrates)
No debate from trolls like you. No resources you can site, nothing but slander. I believe you have no idea how ignorant you come across here at shtf. Do you guffaw at your ignorant posts? I hope you do because most of us recognize you as trolling trash.
Makemyday, way to go. Get him! Get him!
Do you ever stop and realize how childish you sound with these infantile comments? My God man, what are you, 8 years old? Grow up.
Ahh yes, make my day,
Another frustrated keyboard Nazi who’s too old for anything but the keyboard brigade. Take some remedial spelling lessons, you’re never too old to learn how to speak correctly.
I guess using aa Capitalized font makes us read you louder too…….moonbat.
I think it’s a psyop and Obama may not even realize it. Every time he opens his mouth about gun control, sales increase. Think about that in an shtf scenario. Do you folks really think the populace will be overcome with patriotism? Hell to the no. Scores need to be settled, bellies need to be filled, stuff needs to be stolen and whatever else sick minds can think of will be aided with the use of these weapons. The best way to win in this “war” will be to do your very best to stay the hell out of it. My opinion is the shtf will commence with a dollar collapse.
MILLENNIALS OPPOSE ASSAULT WEAPONS BANS EVEN MORE THAN BOOMERS DO!
I stockpile Castille soap. Because it has so many uses.
THIS IS WHAT YOUR HANDS HAVE WROUGHT YOU BABY BOOMER FUCKING PRICKS
I HOPE YOU BOOMERS BURN IN HELL FOR ALL ETERNITY FOR LETTING NON-WHITE IMMIGRANTS INTO THIS COUNTRY. DO YOU SCUM REALIZE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE? YOU HAVE CONIGNED THIS COUNTRY TO DARKNESS FOREVER. WE ARE BEING GOVERNED BY THE INSANE AND THE RETARDED. YOU HAVE CREATED THIS FUCKING PC CULTURE AND PEOPLE ARE NOW SO FUCKING BRAINWASHED AND INDOCTRINATED THEY TURN THEIR HEADS FROM THE OBVIOUS.
TELL ME WHAT THE BENEFIT OF DIVERSITY IS. I’M SICK OF WHITE PEOPLE BEING DEMEANED AND DISRESPECTED. I’M SICK OF WHITE CULTURE BEING MELIGNED.
I agree with acid etch. Well spoken! The blacks are more racist than white people are. I’ve had two black people get in my face while i was visiting the city. I never did nuthin to them. Turned me off to them big time!
PETITION TO BAN TRUMP FROM THE UK MOST POPULAR IN BRITISH HISTORY, PASSES 500,000 SIGNATURES.
Acid, while you make valid points about immigration, stop blaming average people for it. We never voted for any of this shit.
You can bet that if goes through with his ‘no-buy’ list EO, you won’t be able to find out why a gun purchase was denied. National security, ya know…
Folks–this Police Chief is in TEXAS. I have lived and worked in TEXAS. They take their right to bear arms VERY SERIOUSLY.
If he is counselling folks to “arm up” from his little town, imagine what his advice would be to some of the hell-holes like Detroit, Philly, Chicago, NYC, and the like!
When the manure hits the impeller–“Katie, bar the door!”
Check some of the on-line bulk ammo sales outfits these days; they are reporting “OUT OF STOCK” on 9mms, 45ACP, etc.
AMMO-UP as well.
Popular ammo is sold out almost everywhere in the Milwaukee WI area. I heard people are traveling a ways to buy it!
Academy was full stock on all ammo except 22lr.
This is exactly what SGT Dale was talking about
Thanks for the Heads Up Dale
You are welcome.
Please folks keep on the ready. Nothing I can tell you right now more that I told you before, but if I hear something I will let you guys know!
Keep some extra mags ready, and your weapons at hand.
A. S. M. S.
Make no mistake, the planned collapse has already begun, and gun confiscation is coming. These New World Order criminal monsters have not come this far to turn back, they are all in, expect false flags to come rolling out weekly from here on out…THERE WILL NOT BE A 2016 ELECTION, so quit thinking Trump is going to save you, if you think for one minute these NWO criminal monsters are going to allow him to win, you did not really do your research on why the murdered Kennedy and how easily they got away with it to this day.
Gut feeling, definitely not far fetched
You are absolutely right Ron.
That’s exactly what I tell people too.
Through out history, when society get shitty, despot rulers clamp down hard.
We can expect gun confiscation when SHTF.
I want to take the time to thank you for your posts; you never waiver from the truth, so THANK YOU!
THANK YOU FOR BEING A FREEDOM AND LIBERTY LOVING PATRIOT
I do think/believe that the votes are tampered with. All the illegal immigrants will vote demon crat. I am so afraid that bernie will win….
It is nice to have a Texas Sheriff speak up, but have we all here been saying the same thing for A LONG TIME!
Right Here at SHTF.
Really? We talked about Revolution, Gun Confiscation, Martial Law, Riots and the news media is only now picking up on it.
Not only are we stockpiling ammo and guns because of the fear it could ALL BE BANNED. Could it be we may need it to push back TYRANNY.
Take a second look at the equipment used in the Riots in Baltimore and St. Louis. Look at the gear the Police were wearing and the Tactics they used in crowd control. Water cannon, Tear Gas, Rubber Bullets but that is the friendly stuff and they have more lethal measures they can use. Procure accordingly.
I will admit this and that is, When Law Enforcement begins to give warnings of a Revolution. There has been a fundamental change in the land for sure.
But this Texas police chief will fight with the people against the Lib-controlled federal government.
The liberals will go after this guy now.
Bet on it. Even if thousands of them have to relocate to his county.
I, for one, appreciate what this TX police chief is doing. I just hope he won’t get “suicided”. We’ve all been saying the same things for years, but when cops tell you to get armed, something has definitely changed. I can’t seem to get my bank account back up fast enough to replace the 2 pistols I had stolen 2 weeks ago. gun show this weekend in my area and I will be shopping for the 1st replacement.
Preppers all, let me jump in here with a “what if” question.
What if you are carrying and are in a situation where the bad guys come busting in and start shooting. You take a defensive position and return fire. This goes on for a few minutes and you realize very soon those first responders will show up and how will they know you are not the bad guy?
At their appearance could you shout,
“DESIGNATED DEFENDER! DESIGNATED DEFENDER! NO HARM.”
and lay down the weapon and follow their orders.
How do you let the police know NOT to shoot you???
Heat of the moment and all.
Sgt. Dale? And other first responders out there? Military?
What say you?
What first responders? They’ll all be home protecting their families. Better keep jerking that trigger and don’t run it dry cause you’re on your own.
My best to you Grandee and yours in the coming trouble.
First and most importantly, do not put yourself in that position at this time in our VERY, VERY, VERY DANGEROUS rapidly deteriorating situation, that is called MACRO SITUATIONAL AWARENESS. It means if you are in a metro area cesspool hellhole right now-GET THE FUCK OUT, AND STAY AWAY FROM ANY AND ALL LARGE CROWDS. That alone will ensure you will probably never have to worry about that situation. If you are working and believe making more money in one of those metro cesspool shitholes is more important than your life or your families safety, you are too far gone to even own a gun. Quit your job and take one in a rural area-ANY JOB. Sell your house at a loss if you have too, or rent it out. At this point in time, ANYONE who factors money or materialism over their families safety is as good as dead already, their soul is gone when money rules over safety and happiness.
I carry my badge with me all the time, along with my Kimber.
When the Cops show up I will show my badge and hold my weapon up in the air. (hands up don’t shoot) LOL. I will also keep yelling Police Officer over and over again. I will put my weapon down and comply with them.
What is nice in this area I know about 90% of the LEO’s.
I can tell you that cops can tell other cops, about 75% of the time.
It is the holster walk, arms always spread out more from the sides from walking around with all the equipment on the belt. The arms remain spread out from the sides slightly all the time after only a few months on the job. Never knew it until someone pointed it out to me after a few years on the job, and four years after retiring the arms are still spread out.

When the cops show up you cease fire, put your weapon down and say, ‘I’m not armed’. Your status as a good guy will be determined in due course.
thank you smokey.
I guess shouting at the police would just add to the confusion.
You can shout if you want, just be unarmed and with hands clearly empty and raised.
They may shoot you by mistake if do that, but they will definitely shoot you intentionally if you don’t.
They’re not mind readers, visual and auditory stimuli are required.
Braveheart: Now this recent robery you had is PRIME example/Reason #1 You Should RE think getting Credit established. And do NOT repeat again how none will allow you credit due to some denial 25 yrs ago etc.
YES You Can simply apply for a credit card, with YOUR own Cash Up front deposited on HOLD for One year time. You Choose the total amount…can be as LOW as $200 maybe Less on Hold cash.
That determine the credit cards LIMIT You can spend, all its held for is incase you fail to pay.
ONCE you USE that Card for say, weekly Gas tank fills or similar expences that reoccure, AND Pay Entire Card Bill IN FULL each month, you pay ZERO in Intrest Fees, ZERO Card fees, and within around 6 to probably closer to 12 Months time frame.
That credit card bank is going to send a letter to you advising You that due to You has established such GREAT Credit payment ability etc You NOW can apply for a Brand New Card and WITHOUT the need for ANY $$$ held on Hold.
Plus the orig cash deposit as securoty you placed on hold IS going to get Returned To YOU and With whatever intrest a reg normal bank saving acct pays if any.
THEN…Say you need Replace stolen guns…OR FAST repair broke transmission at large cost of say $2000 etc.
or Whatever Other lifes little suprizes expenses thrown at you happen from time to time as it does to everybody else also…NOW instead of wishing that super duper cheep sale priced GUN you “Wish” you had Cash up front to buy it with….But do NOT have said cash…So what?
BUY WITH Card and Pay off monthly if need be and that tiny intrest over few months is far off set by sale priced savings on gun.
Or Trans gets fixed Now and you dont lose a job due to NO car avail.
Yes Yes I know you get free truck from job etc..Its just used as example here..it Can and WILL be various Other itims or issues that will and do happen that you aint covered already for I am speaking of.
NO co signer needed…ALL or close to ALL credit card co’s HAS such programs so ZERO Excuse to keep harpig how “gee nobody will give breavheart any credit”.
oh YES They will!…For I did it 25 years ago Pal.
I had terrible credit due to a repoed pick up truck that happened when Jimmy Carters economic BS caused Home loans intrest to sky rocket to 18 to 21% on 30 year mortgages and Me and the 5 other workers I employed Lost the entire 11 real estate accounts for work I had plus one major Home builder co lost work from also.
I knew the entire group of tow truck repo guys in MY area back then as all were pals of mine…Like 4-5 guys total in area…So they let me decide when truck got repoed…I told them all to wait till my next birtday when Lic Plates and reg renewals time happens again and Then take it…So I got lucky and Kept truck to drive just under one years time while credit union fumed!…
but That ONE time incident caused my credit scores to Tank to zero rate…
What I did was:…A now ex girlfriend I had just got her credit card established etc a short time…She got letter in mail asked her does she wish to ADD another person as Card holder?…I told her SAY YES! and Name ME!
Two weeks later after she filled it out and mailed in card paperwork…I got a shiny new card in MY name that she was responsible for paying incase I did’nt pay it…
Of Course I did always pay and in full each month on time etc…In LESS than 12 months time I began to recieve card offer letters in mail….I then got several cards for me in MY name Only…
The rest as they say is history…Now my fico scores average from Lows of 804 to highest ever yet of 836 fico score…Top Highest score can get is 850.
Just to own a credit card aint a bad thing Braveheart…The entire world is set up FOR credit weather we like or not…Sometimes it IS Ok and even GOOD to play the game in their ways as they set up so You can survive or do better etc…Because in Reality..Going all Gualt as many promote is All a Fantacy idea at best..There is NO such thing avail as go 100% off grid for everything period…Nobody in This era of time has done so and none shall ever do so period. Unless you wish to forgo driver lic soc sec numbers etc etc and them what trys that goes to JAIL everytime. Go Gault sounds swell but aint reality…Credit Is since we has zero say in how world functions..Why not play the parts good for You eh.
And as long as bill gets paid in full each month You Pay ZERO xtra and ZERO-NOTHING-NONE-Fees or intrest.
Same for buy new or used cars/trucks…Whats wrong with 72 or 60 or 48 months pay plans that contain ZERO Intrest as seen on TV ads for car buyers?
If buy car and pay Cash up front OR Pay same car at same price off in 72 Months time monthly it costs Exact SAME.
HOW Is That not good thing?
Yes many folks rather pay far less and own a junk car and weekly buy parts and parts and more repair parts.
But its also good to own a new or close to new vehicle with low miles and even still has plenty warrenty left as many does…And drive more worry free so can do Other things besides fix car weekends.
Just thought this advice may assist you is reason for writing it here Braveheart…and IMHO you Should consider it and act wisely…New Tall 600-800LB gun Safe?
Most farm and fleet type stors has em like one I got for around $800 and bolts to floor and walls etc. Nobodys going to walk off with that nor break in.
And many such stores has ZERO Intrest pay plans to pay off within 12 months “IF” You have established good credit rateing score already….SEE why what I outlined is good yet?
Choose wisely grasshoppah! Between More Burglers OR New 800 LB Safe you can pay for in 12 months Intrest FREE same as cash up front!…get the memo eh!
what, YOU, actually employing ANYBODY? ROTFLMAO!
Karl, how do you live with yourself?
Them Guys, I appreciate the thought, but I doubt if we have 12 months left before TSHTF. No way I’m going to get any type of loan or credit card now. I just got some shitty news earlier that has caused me to put off my gun purchases at least til’ next week. I’m hoping to get that accomplished before NICS gets tied into the damn watchlists. I gave up on the credit game many, many moons ago when we still had a decent economy. As far as another vehicle goes, it’s going to be something from a private owner for cash just like I’ve always done and that won’t be until March at the latest. As a last resort, if I have to bugout between now and then and don’t have wheels, one of the family will come get me and bring an extra truck to haul what little I have left. It’ll all work out somehow.
The call from east Texas went state wide…. East to West North to South… Damn sure more involved than the 3%… Boys and girls North of the Red River and East of the Sabine… American Made…..
Most firearms owners realize (as non-gun owners also do) that bit by bit our God-given rights are being stripped from us. However, they see the outlawing, or confiscation, or gun banning, or any kind of gun control as the singular act that allows government to crush what remaining rights we still have; it would be seen as the defining act that “crosses the line” leading to tyranny. The consequence being probably a national uprising.
Let’s be honest here, we all know government HATES the Second Amendment and private ownership of firearms. The obvious question would be to ask is why do they hate that it’s citizens are armed. Well, we all know the answer for that too. The Second Amendment is the one that will ultimately protect all other rights (which are slowly being lost), it is an empowering right.
Let’s talk about what civil rights actually are. When the state allows same-sex marriage or abortion or legalizes pot for example, they may call them rights, but are not really civil rights. Stating they are real rights is wrong on two counts. First, government cannot confer rights because if it gives, then it can take away. Secondly, true civil rights empower us against the government. Who cares if you want to marry your butt buddy, go ahead, do so, but this does not empower you against the state. Or get your abortion, I could not care less, but how would that help you to protect your other rights (the state should not be involved in our personal lives in any matter in any way). Only our Creator has endowed us with our rights by virtue of being human, the state did not and cannot. The government only has the responsibility to protect our rights. In fact, protecting and willfully interpreting our rights in the broadest way possible is the only thing that gives government legitimacy.
If you surrender any your rights without a fight you will consign your children to a wretched and powerless existence, and as history ALWAYS shows again and again once something is lost it is rarely regained.
bit by bit our God-given rights are being stripped from us
It is no longer bit by bit, now it is leaps and bounds.
Connecticut to ban sales of guns to those on NO FLY LIST.
Sling, I saw that article earlier at aol. In order for CT’s little scheme to work, the feds would have to allow all of CT’s LE agencies access to any of the watchlists. That remains to be seen. IF the feds grant access, it could set a dangerous precedent. I feel things getting worse.
Linking gun ownership to a secret no fly list with no right to due process, which would be a clear violations of the 2nd and 5th Amendments of the Constitution. This will end up in the courts Quickly.
If you haven’t noticed, the courts are not exactly upholding the Constitution. Ignoring, yes – upholding, not so much.
It is looking more and more like someone is going to need to step in, remove the problem, and uphold the Constitution for them.
The courts are just another form of legislature now. Casting votes for or against based on party lines.
There probably isn’t one person in CT on that list
So it was easy for that smug mitherfucker to go this route ,
He wasn’t worried about the 3 am knock on his front door and 100,000 pissed off patriots ready to send him to the traitor machine
EOTS, those watch lists are not legitimate. IF NICS gets tied into the lists, we can expect to see private gun sales go through the roof. You don’t know if you’re on the no-fly list until you try to get on a plane. The secrecy around those lists has always been so tight that not even Congress can get any info about them. It’s only been within the last few years that the DHS documents came to light revealing the criteria they use to determine how someone gets on their lists. It’s a miracle we even learned that much about the lists. As I said, the whole thing is illegitimate and bogus. It’s going to become a real challenge to get anything from a licensed dealer now.
Then I expect more to go OFF THE BOOKS. The best route around tyranny is underground.
Agreed. Fuck them. Catchin’ comes before hangin’.
PO’d P and Sixpack, I’ve also done a few private deals in the past. I’ll do them again if necessary.
And CT can’t even access the no-fly list.
people are tired of loosing their rights. Bring it on.
No they’re not. They’re welcoming it. In droves.
At least the masses are. A few of us are not but we don’t matter.
Its more then a few!

that capitalism is the “best” economic system we can come up with
Lucky for us that capitalism provided the wealth for us to eliminate all that child labor, isn’t it?
Or are you going to tell us that socialism or communism ended such things here in the U.S.?
Very few problems are solved by typing.
I saw someone (on the boobtube) throw a pig’s head toward a muslim’s building. Gestapo’s looking for ’em. Be hell to pay if they find ’em.
I agree, Blub. Typing ain’t going to help.
Obama is a radical extremist Islamic Muslim and his goal is the complete destruction of America from within. This statement is easily proven given the evidence of his administrations policies, executive orders, Obamacare, the TTP and his refusal to name our common enemy of Islamic Muslim radicals. Hence, America can no longer follow the dictates of this man. And, our Military leaders must arrest and detained him so he can not damage America further. And, he must be impeached or eliminated from office anyway legally possible.
Just a reminder, forty-four of our state constitutions also recognize our right to keep and bear arms.
Just a reminder, forty-four of our state constitutions also recognize our right to keep and bear arms.
The state I live in pisses all over gun rights. Fortunately people suffer through the process and gun ownership has increased dramatically in the last few years. Unfortunately all law abiding citizens have to register their guns, so Democrats know who you are and where you are at. On the other hand there are quite possibly 4 times as many un-registered guns hidden behind the front doors of older homes. What the government doesn’t know will hurt it.
Ammo is the biggie here, if you know how much ammo you have for each gun, you don’t have enough ammunition.
Keep prepping. Brass, primers, and lead are worth far more than gold and silver.
Relik if it maxes out the springs in a 3/4 ton pick up, is that enough ammo?
It’s enough for the pacifist types.
A deuce-and-a-half is better.
“…un-registered guns hidden behind the front doors of older homes.”
Yep. Many, many firearms with no state paper on them.
We’ve all been “radicalized” with anti-tyranny ambition.
Now, git out yer tommygun and yer black fedora and meet me by the Potomac.
Oh, and don’t forget to “click it or ticket”. Don’t want to attract too much attention from the “heroes”.
Mind you…the crick’s risin’.
Comments from the left that masquerade as “fact,” such as the post-Sandy Hook Bill Clinton statement: “Half of all mass killings in the United States have occurred since the assault weapons ban expired in 2005. Half of all of them in the history of the country.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=or-inV1KKDE#t=0s are not even close to reality. Leaving aside the definition of what “is” is, what are the actual facts?
Unfortunately – similar to the ClimateGate revelations – someone actually did the research in a 2007 book entitled Mass Murder in the United States” A History, authored by Grant Duwe, director of research and evaluation at the Minnesota Dept. of Corrections. Here’s what Duwe found, as summarized from http://freedomoutpost.com/2013/01/bill-clinton-caught-in-lie-over-mass-shootings-fact/ :
As of a couple years ago, in the past 100 years, there have been 156 mass killings where at least four people were killed publicly with a firearm in under 24 hours, where the killings did not include robbery, drugs or gangs. As of Jan., 2013, there have been 32 mass public shootings since Clinton’s assault weapons ban expired on Sept. 13, 2004, with seven in 2012. Here is the tally by decade:
1900s : zero
2010s (three years): 14
Data from Boston.com, using data extracted from official police reports to the FBI, shows mass shootings in the US over the past 30 years have not increased. (See http://boston.com/community/blogs/crime_punishment/2012/08/no_increase_in_mass_shootings.html or as below)
Of course, the vast majority of these were not committed with semi-automatic rifles; rather, they were committed by handguns. Why no outcry re. handguns? Is it because they look less “scary?” Or might it really be because rifles could be used by a free people to defend themselves against totalarianism? Perhaps the left should lift all restrictions on long guns, and legislate against handguns if they honestly wanted to make a dent in the death toll. (And while they are at it, perhaps they could pass legislation against “Fast & Furious” Eric Holder being anywhere within 100 miles of any gun at all.)
On the other side of the school shooter equation, in 2008, the isolated Harrold Independent School District in Texas, noting the damage done in the Columbine shootings, among others, decided the 20 minutes it could take police to arrive could lead to a horrific disaster, trained school staff were allowed to carry firearms in school. The result? Dead students? Mayhem? Actually… nothing, except a safe school. School district superintendent David Thweatt simply stated “We’re the first responders. We have to be. We don’t have 5 minutes. We don’t have 10 minutes. We would have had 20 minutes of hell” if the school was attacked.
In fact, Evan Todd – who was shot and wounded at the Columbine massacre – makes this exact point (and a few more!) in his open letter to President Obama of Feb., 2013, found at http://chicksontheright.com/posts/item/23858-have-you-read-evan-todd-s-letter-to-obama-yet . Todd elucidated on his points in a further interview found at http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/02/19/being-shot-gave-this-columbine-survivor-strong-views-on-gun-control-heres-why-he-opposes-more-restrictions/ Interestingly, the well-known reporter Cal Thomas, after researching the Sandy Hook attack, reported that Adam Lanza had researched which school to attack, and from the information available, chose Sandy Hook as he felt it was a clearly “soft” target. http://townhall.com/columnists/calthomas/2013/04/09/gun-laws-and-human-nature-n1561595
But lurking behind the school shooting question is the issue of “never let a crisis go to waste,” per Rahm Emmanuel. Is it really guns, or is it rather the gun grabber agenda that is in the dock here? If the former, why no comment from the leftist media that every month after the Sandy Hook shooting, on average 40 juveniles will be murdered with something other than a rifle? Or doesn’t that meet with the agenda du jour? (And I’m just waiting to hear some leftist claim that rifles cause global warming!)
And finally, if gun grabbers are so “concerned for the kids,” why then this story that came out just after Sandy Hook:
“Amid all the hubbub surrounding Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban, there are still everyday stories of average law-abiding citizens using firearms to defend themselves and others from evil — or in this case, serious harm. An 11-year-old boy was riding his bike in a Washington, DC, neighborhood when he came upon three pit bulls. The dogs pounced, mauling the boy. Fortunately, a neighbor saw what was happening, grabbed his handgun and rushed out to shoot one of the pit bulls. A DC police officer patrolling nearby on a bicycle heard the shot, and came to the boy’s aid as well, shooting the other two pit bulls. The boy’s injuries were severe, but he will survive, thanks to the quick action of this neighbor. However, the hero is under investigation for violating local gun laws — discharging his weapon while not on his own property. No word yet on whether charges will be filed, but DC’s gun laws are what put children at risk.” (Source for this story not retained, but published week of 21 Jan., 2013)
This story clearly illustrates that for many on the left, it is not about the kids. It is about their agenda.
Could it be, as former gun control advocate turned gun rights supporter Dr. John Lott of Univ. of Chicago maintains, in his eponymous book More Guns, Less Crime, that we are safer with more guns? The young boy who drove off two home invaders in Houston in 2012 – reported at Houston’s KHOU TV – with his father’s AR-15 “evil” assault rifle would certainly agree. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-q2zHIovOE.
And here’s another story of an“evil” AR-15 used to drive off intruders: New York Resident Scares the Hell out of Intruders” – video at http://www.thedailysheeple.com/ar-15-defense-weapon-new-york-resident-scares-the-hell-out-of-intruders_012013; story also found at http://www.kfiam640.com/pages/MoreStimulatingTalkRadio.html?feed=104668&article=10729296 And then there were the young students in Rochester, NY who thankfully were able to use an AR-15 to protect their lives during a break in – see http://www.13wham.com/news/local/story/Homeowners-Scare-Off-Burglars/7yaLSXAvCUGBkwgAZpGO4g.cspx. Finally, another story of an AR-15 used to save lives, this time in Detroit, where armed robbers retreat when they realize they are outgunned by a single guard with an AR-15: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwRoXIk1H3Q&feature=player_detailpage#t=33s.
As a matter of fact, as the non-stereotypical gun owner Dan Baum – who is a Jewish Democrat who wrote for the New Yorker- noted, while “Joe Nocera at the Times runs a daily tally of gun killings. He’s not running a daily tally of how many people defend themselves with guns. For one thing we don’t know about it most of the time. David Hemenway at Harvard is very pro gun-control and he thinks it happens about 80,000 times a year. If that’s true, that means that guns are saving 10 times as many people as they’re killing.” http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2013/03/what-liberals-need-to-understand-about-gun-guys/273736/
Similarly, as Aubrey Blankenship and Celia Bigelow told Piers Morgan (video and story at http://www.wnd.com/2013/01/22-year-old-schools-piers-morgan-on-guns/#yi5kmq2Ub6bbVgmH.99), there are very good reasons, particularly for women, to have not only guns, but specifically AR-15s. Stated the two ladies in a companion column in the National Review, “One, they’re lightweight,” the 22-year-old Bigelow responded. “They’re quite accurate. I can shoot them much more accurately than a handgun or a shotgun. And three … I want a gun that can hold a lot of ammo, because if I’m faced with an intruder or multiple intruders that come into my home, I want to make sure I have enough ammo to get the job done, especially if they’re armed. … I don’t have to take the time to reload… We saw a situation in Georgia just a couple weeks ago where a mom was hiding in her attic with her two children when an intruder entered her home. She had a handgun that only had six rounds in it. She fired all six rounds, missed the intruder once, hit him five times in the face and in the neck. And he still lived.”
And given that there are around eight thousand home invasions per year (and not one conducted by well-mannered, non-violent Boy Scouts), with at least one in five households experiencing a break-in at some point, the people above are just the tip of the iceberg.
But returning to Dr. Lott, here is Exhibit A: scarcely one week before the Colorado tragedy, a similar situation had an opposite ending in Florida, where 71 year old Samuel Williams stopped an armed robbery when two masked men entered the Palms Internet Cafe around 10 p.m. Friday, July 13, 2012. Make your own conclusion from the surveillance camera, which captures it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZNC2VwyaPU&feature=player_embedded#t=0s . Exhibit B: Scarcely a month after the Colorado theatre shooting, on the opposite side of the country, an Orange County, CA. jewelry and coin dealer thwarted and armed robbery – and possible employee deaths – by defending herself with her pistol. Video surveillance footage at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjXJBpV9YRI And as if this wasn’t enough, the Oregon Clackamas Town Center Mall mall shooting – which was overshadowed by the Connecticut school shooting a few days later – was stopped by a citizen, Nick Melti, exercising his right of concealed carry. Full details of this incident – not reported by the lamestream media – are at http://www.examiner.com/article/media-blackout-oregon-mall-shooter-was-stopped-by-an-armed-citizen. Project Avalon gives full details” “He was working on his rifle,” said Meli. “He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side.” The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, but he never took his eyes off the shooter. “As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said. Meli took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger. He stands by that decision. “I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself….We now know that the assailant’s gun had jammed, and when he cleared it, he quickly retreated and shot himself, as Meli continued to keep him in his sights. Not only has the national media refused to acknowledge this aspect of the deadly event, but law enforcement has as well.” (See other reports on this story at http://www.kgw.com/story/news/2014/07/24/12405148/ http://www.kgw.com/story/news/2014/07/24/12402226/ or http://www.oregonlive.com/clackamascounty/index.ssf/2013/05/clackamas_town_center_shooting_84.html )
At the risk of overkill (pun intended), here’s another video of a 65 yr. old woman thwarting FIVE armed robbers with her pistol in her store: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PoDNJQtNVoc&feature=player_embedded#t=0s. In fact, it appears to be the case that, as ex-gangsta rap artist turned Christian rap singer Travis Tyler, known as Thi’sl notes, more gun restrictions are not the answer, as this will not stop criminals from getting guns. But listen to Thi’sl in his own words: http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/2013/January/Ex-Gangsta-Rapper-More-Gun-Laws-Not-the-Answer/ (note that Thi’sl also identifies fatherlessness as a “huge role” in gun violence, as well as the issue of mental illness).
Interestingly, Mark Mattioli, who lost his six year old son at Sandy Hook, also stated before a gun violence task force shortly after the shooting that guns are categorically not the problem – rather, it is mental health issues, issues that stem from media violence, lack of personal integrity, lack of parenting, etc. A Mattioli video speaking to this issue is at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqpzOSYqX3c&feature=player_embedded#t=8s. Ann Coulter speaks to the Mattioli video at http://www.humanevents.com/2013/04/10/coulter-liberals-go-crazy-for-the-mentally-ill/, noting that the one critical piece missing from the leftist analysis of gun violence is that they refuse to deal with that fact that the vast majority of gun violence is caused by mentally ill. Says Ann Coulter: “Mass shootings don’t correlate with gun ownership; they correlate with not locking up schizophrenics” and “For most of the 20th century, from 1900 to 1970, there was an average of four mass public shootings per decade. Throughout the ’70s, as the loony bins were being emptied, the average number of mass shootings suddenly shot up to 13. In the 3.3 decades since 1980, after all the mental institutions had been turned into condos, mass shootings skyrocketed to 36 on average per decade. And as exhibits for this exact issue, see Adam Lanza, Seung-Hui Cho at Virginia Tech, James Holmes, Jared Loughner, paranoid schizophrenic One L. Goh, who murdered a number of people at a Christian college in 2012, Nidal Hassan, and others. For a complete list of mentally ill (well, perhaps Islam IS a mental illness!)committing crimes, Coulter directs readers to E. Fuller Torrey’s book, The Insanity Defense: How America’s Failure to Treat the Seriously Mentally Ill Endangers Its Citizens. Fox News also does a concise expose of the issue at http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2013/04/10/it-not-knives-it-not-guns-it-mental-illness-that-kills/
I have said it before – some of the characteristics of an AR-15 that make it an ‘assault’ weapon also make it a very effective mid-range defensive weapon. Even at closer range, it has an intimidation factor.
Kevin Bacon is anti-gun but stars in movies where he pulls the trigger and engages in violence. He is not the only celeb hypocrite who is anti-gun but has no problem lining his pockets while playing the hypocritical part. Yep these hypocrites have gotten rich from shooting people and slinging guns.
Anyone trying to disarm you is evil and the gov is on that list. It is claimed there is no gun registry but if this is so how did the fbi trace the guns used in the San Bernardino terror situation back to the guy that purchased them. I was told they file at the gun store for so many years and then they throw the receipts with the serial # away. Anyone know how many years it is I don’t remember. Unless they lied about it which I know they did and when the background check is done the approval or decline of firearm is filed in a Gov database with your name. If Obummer has his way the no fly list will be the same as felons can’t buy guns. It’s a lot of bullshit to get a piece nowadays which is infringement on the second. Fuck all that noise criminals gonna have a gun only dumb good folks who are brainwashed by the left buy the utopian lies.
No guns=control. If the government controls guns,food,water,production,transportation,money supply they control you…its that simple!
Before they can take your stuff leaving you with nothing but a stick to dig bugs from the dirt to eat, they’ve got to take your weapons. They take your weapon away then they can take your stuff. They can’t loot you out of existence if the population is armed. It’s as simple as that. Want to survive? Better have a weapon. I’d gladly give my weapon up when everybody else does. As long as others have weapons including the military, law enforcement and crooks, then the rest of us law abiding citizens need to have weapons as well.

They can call for all the gun bans they want. If they make a law I won’t enforce it. They can go to hell!!! If they try to move into where I work I will SCREAM like a little girl to let everyone know they are coming. I will take off the badge and become a Rebel Patriot, and fight them to the death.
They want a Civil War/Revolution I will do everything I can to give them the bloodiest fight I can.

Cops in uniform are welcome and never suspect especially in various details when used as protectors of said criminals.
Just how difficult would it really be for say one or two good cops to take a protective detail client to lunch and somehow client never returns!
Nobody would suspect cops doing such necessary clean ups.
same can be said for cops who agree En Mass as a group of good cops to always be certain to fuck up the reports whenever it details an unfortunate expeience of say a missing criminal honcho etc.
Or agree up front to NOT arrest any suspects that look like real suspects….Kinda like play along but not do crapola in reality…Kinda like hang at dunkin donuts while others takes care of biz…Then Play Dumb when needed to do so…
Disclaimer: I would Never promote such ideas..I am just stateing these issues for debate on it since we americans face such trying times now…I also wont deny others who do promote it their right to do so!
Yeah, you’re the expert on things EVERYBODY ELSE can do seeing that you’re too feeble brained for any type of action yourself except keyboard bluff and bullshit.

A suicide bomber died and went to Paradise, as foretold.
When he arrived there he said to Allah that he was ready to claim
his 72 virgins, as promised. Out of curiosity he asked Allah why there
were so many virgins in heaven.
Allah looked at him for a moment, then replied, “Actually,
the 72 virgins are here in heaven because people like
you murdered them before they could experience the pleasure of sex. So,
you’re here to service them. Since they’re virgins, they’re quite
sexually ravenous and frankly, you’ll be on constant,
exhausting duty. I shall banish you from Paradise should you fail.
The bomber responded, “Well, I guess I can live with that.
How hard can it be to keep 72 women satisfied for all
Allah replied, “Who told you they were women?”
Why do people care about the refugees coming to America. Letting them in doesn’t solve the problem of Islam savages. These people have no $ and no skills to offer America. Why do people have bleeding hearts. Refugees will consume resources and offer little to nothing of value. There is not enough jobs as it is. I understand their situation but they need to help themselves take their country from the savages and this is where America can help. If everyone runs away from the savages they will be seen as an organization of power and spread and recruit. There will be no safe place on earth. If someone came to your home to kill you would you flee to live like a refugee giving up everything you ever worked for. This is what fleeing refugee are doing. No media outlets even mention Syrians fighting for their country. Why because it’s a political football to take people’s attention away from the real problems. This shit is all a diversion the economy is imploding and there is no stopping it. $2.00 gal gas is the stimulus when it goes up again it’s gonna be$5.00 a gal.
I agree. Well said.
There are only about 535 of those traitors. With their leader and defender,s only about 2000 good stout ropes will be needed. no matter how they die you gotta hang & display the traitors corpse to drive home the message.
Don’t forget about the million or so heavily armed minions that will have to be dealt with first to get to them.
Why do you think all the PD’s and agencies are stocking up on military equipment and arms, for your increased protection?
Infidel2, ROFLMFAO. One of the best jokes I’ve ever heard anywhere. Hope you have some more like that.
The more I think about it, the less convinced I am that a gun grab will be straightforward. It is more likely to be a people grab…
The late night knock at the door.
Time to buy another Gun,
and Lot’s of AMMO.
Word advice for Randy Kennedy.
don’t make obama angery, you wouldn’t like him when he’s agree.
just ask tax payers and church goers.
Even us old, retired, worn out vets, still have working trigger fingers!
When you surrender your gun, you’ve surrendered your liberty, which just shows you don’t deserve either!
Most of the keyboard coward pussies of fascist shithole America will simply turn their guns over, and become the New World Order fascist boot licking coward slave filth they have always been anyway. I agree with the assessment that only 3% of brave real humans will rise up in revolt of the fascist monsters controlling shithole America. The rest of the coward pussy boot lickers of fascist America will live their lives in shame and horror, as New World Order fascist salve filth, and their children will curse the day they were born to the shameful coward pussy filth in the evil vile disgusting shithole of collapsing fascist America. They and their descendants will spit, shit, and piss on the graves of their coward pussy boot licking parents.
“All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about YOU.”
If all those people on the No Fly list are so dangerous that they cant fly or soon wont be able to own or buy a gun,, than why arnt they arrested and in jail?
I know I’ve said this before
Only your enemy wants you disarmed
anyone willing to work in that direction, politic in that direction, make policy, or back door regulations or even openly speak of disarming anyone.. is the enemy, and should be treated as such
Gun control Libs are the enemy. And anyone who votes for gun control Libs.
Yea, ive had some people close to me make some troubling comments regarding guns lately, people suck
how much you want to bet , Obama doesnt even know what the word Potentate means ..
It means “Giant Baked Potato”. In RedNeckese.
This is a copy of the e-mail I sent to the Interim Reno Police Chief yesterday, we worked together for many years, and he started the same year I did. They are now actively seeking a permanent Chief of Police. Still no word back, I am thinking I will not get the job:
Hello Jason, Congrats on being Police Chief and I hope you and your family are doing well. Quick question Jason…Now that we know our criminal fascist US Government is allowing terrorists into our country that they created, arm, and funded, and now that other Sheriff’s and Police Chiefs across the country are calling for citizens to arm themselves for protection, and defense against our criminal tyrannical government- I was wondering if you were going to do the same??? If not, I would like to know how to apply for the Chief of Police Position. My first order of business will be for everyone to retake the Oath to protect the Constitution and our Second Amendment rights, any sworn officer who refuses will be terminated and charged with TREASON. We can talk about the other steps I will take to stop this New World Order fascist takeover of our collapsing country in my interview
From a freedom, liberty, and peace lover,
Retired RPD April 10, 2011
If I have not heard anything from him in a week, I will be sending my retired badge and duty badge to him, with a nice letter explaining why I want NO ASSOCIATION with cowards in the Police Forces of America, who are not openly and actively trying to stop: this Corporatist Fascist New World Order takeover of our country, the destruction of our Constitution and Second Amendment rights, the theft of destruction of our Middle Class wealth, and for the genocide of a disease ridden, depressed, dumbed down, chemically altered, dying population of VICTIMS, who have no idea what is even happening to them.

All the major markets are way down. Dow down around 275 points.
The Sky is falling, The Sky is Falling (LOL)
Are they Dead, Yet?
Now Connecticut wants to ban firearms from people on no fly list. Look for the government to find reasons to put you on the no fly list…whether you intend to fly or not!
The Chief is a true Patriot and, in his position, would thus be Militia battalion executive for the Mayor of his city. His constituents, whether by block squads or street companies, can certainly come to his or his patrolmen’s (which, of course, includes female or male, for those who might quibble over the title) aid if needed, as they command for such help to come.
Servant? Pisspoor servant.
The Declaration of Independence says ‘to secure these rights, Governments are instituted’, it does not say to keep the people safe.
The problem is NOT guns but PEOPLE…People are the damn problem my friends!!!
It’s PEOPLE!! Soylent Green is PEOPLE !!!
