This thought hit me this morning.........

Are those evil, socialist, politicians so stupid or just so evil they do not see what is happening? That witch Fienstein proposes NOT to grandfather in "modern sporting rifles" (there is no such thing as an "assault weapon" the witch made the term up). Now, if they are proposing not to grandfather them in how do they explain the fact they are impossible to  find and many companies are back ordered for 8 months to a year. They started being sold out when the ban talk started. They are almost impossible to find now.

It would seem that the "will of the people" is to not fall for their lies and hysteria.

The big question is......do they really think people are going to turn them in? They bought them knowing they could be banned and not grandfathered in !

Big ears wants you to pressure congress to "do something". Is he too stupid to see people are doing something, or just so evil it does not matter.

When people do not do as told, what will the result be? Door to door confiscation? Sounds like something that has happened before and the results were not good for the Jews. Trouble is, "they" will not go into "the projects" where real violence and illegal weapons abound. They will come for the sheeple and the easy to control.

 Roll Eyes Ed, you are a good friend, but you are a bit naive. (Sorry, I can´t doubledot the i on my keyboard.)

Politicians don´t have to do anything sensible, but they need to be seen doing.

And look at things from an administrative point of view. You are a law abiding citizen (well, at least you hardly ever get caught), so your name and address are on file - much easier to pester you than to find someone in the "projects".

Btw, "projects". There´s a handy thing in your kitchen to pour in whatever you don´t want back - "projects" in nonPC British English is "Sink Estates".

Hey Pit, oh I get it completely. I guess my point is it does not take a genius  to see that people are expressing their feelings with their wallets.

Also, you must undergo background check to purchase pistol or rifle. The guns are not being bought by criminals!
They are not being bought to sell to criminals. If they become "illegal" they'd have to be turned in or confiscated. The folks buying them knew this in advance yet they still bought them and are buying them as soon as they find them.

That should be a strong message to any one. Law abiding citizens  are purchasing guns that very well may be made illegal. Why? So they can  turn them in and lose a ton of money? I think not. So why do it?

The second Amendment was not about hunting.

I bet the number of modern sporting rifles that get lost or stolen will be enormous if they are banned!

I already sold mine for a 400% profit to a collector.

Well, you aren´t a businessman. Should have waited for the financial gun boom.
When short arms were decreed illegal in the UK, clever dealers imported Saturday Night Specials by the truckload and sold them illegally - dollardollardollar.
My Webley sidearm, converted to legal .38 teargas but verboten under current German law - take it from my dead cold body, mate.

Hey Ed,

I think the most relevent question is whether government troops will fire on formerly law-abiding citizens if guns are made illegal and attempts are made to confiscate.  The second most relevent question is - Will enough of these formerly law-abiding citizens fire back?  Where it goes from there could be messy - in reality privately owned arms are pretty insignificant when compared to what the modern military could bring to bear.  A minigun in a helicopter can really ruin your whole day in a remarkably short period of time.  I don't think that scenario is very likely, bit I am concerned as to how this will all play out.  Most likely, the current regime will simply chip away in small enough pieces to appear "reasonable" which will fool most citizens until it is literally "too late".  It could be worse for you if you lived in upstate New York and had to deal with they tyranny of the majority that live on the coast - the ones that elected the state legislators that just passed their latest gun-control laws.

I wonder what historians living 500 years from now will make of all this.....

History will always repeat itself, look at what happened to the Romans.

Yep ..... a very good analogy .....

The Roman government kept the unwashed masses "sedated" with "free" goodies and "entertainment" .....

..... while the "barbarians" howled at the gate .....  Roll Eyes

Things are about to get interesting .....

Sad but true.  Lets do some plug-in.
The Roman government kept the unwashed masses "sedated" (Fast & Furious cover up via executive privilege, Benghazi cover up) with "free" goodies (food stamp, free cellphone, government run healthcare) and "entertainment" (politically skewed major networks) .....

..... while the "barbarians" (al-Qaeda, Communist China) howled at the gate ..... 


That leaves emperor Nero.  Will Obama qualify as plug-in?

Does he own a fiddle ? ..... or (according to some sources) a bagpipe or lyre ? .....  Grin

As to the "entertainment" ..... I was thinking more along the lines of the tax payer funded stadiums which correspond nicely with the Roman Coliseum ..... which, for many Americans the sporting events are an unofficial religion .....  Roll Eyes

Or ..... the government complicit Hollyweird elite who have an opinion on everything and are more than happy to share that (usually uninformed) opinion .....  Wink

Don't forget the really big corporate types who manipulate the news, and have absolutely no loyalty to the country.

News manipulation is done by the news outlets themselves.  New York Times, NBC, CBS, ABC... etc are responsible for what they report or not report.

Responsibility has nothing to do with it. Ownership does.

 Angry Not only the owners - the "I have a desk, kindly call me God" types are even worse.
I recently got a few books that were written during the bad days in South Africa and didn´t match what some subeditor decreed was the general public point of view in Germany...interesting. Very interesting. You can remote control the masses by editing what you sell, or don´t sell at all.

Guys, another thing no one seems to care about is a further crippling of our economy. Do those fucks have any idea how many people simply enjoy target shooting? Do they not understand how many people the firearms and ammo industry employ? If those fucks get their way a lot of people will lose their jobs and the "children" will be no safer and neither will anyone else. Why are they not worried about the welfare of the children who's parents will lose their job?

How about this fellows....

Here's Sidney....she just came in and said "does Ann Coulter write for Glenn Beck"? I said "why". She explained and I asked her to describe her assignment and her choice...so here goes fellows...I handed her the box and this is what she wrote....

My assignment for my AP English class is as follows:
Collect five, recent, consecutive articles from an author on this list, and annotate them for rhetorical strategies. Write two more paragraphs, one precis that describes the article and the author's intent and execution of their ideals, and one paragraph describing your subjective response to the article.
The columnists are as follows:
Dave Barry, David Brooks, Ann Coulter, Maureen Dowd, Thomas Friedman, Maggie Gallagher, Ellen Goodman, Bob Herbert, Garrison Keillor, Joe Klein, Naomi Klein, Charles Krauthammer, Nicholas Kristof, Paul Krugman, Peggy Noonan, Kathleen Parker, Leonard Pitts, Anna Quindlen, Thomas Sowell, Cal Thomas, George Will.
I chose Ann Coulter because as I went through the list, I reviewed their most recent article and decided if I could side or argue with their ideals. Ann Coulter was the first that I could actually find articles for, and as I read I believed that I could use her writings in my project, since I could agree with her points for my responses.


 I had no Idea she was aware who Ann Coulter was. As I said above she came in and asked me if "Ann Coulter wrote for Glenn Beck" as I was writing this post.  I was shocked! She said " they have the same ideas and opinions, I like her and am using her for a project". So I said "write that down for me and explain the assignment"...this happened as I was writing this post. I stopped when she came in and asked me that question about Ann and Glenn, then I wrote "how about this fellows" and handed her the box.

My daughter kicks ass. Anyone that thinks she listens to me or her opinions are based on my beliefs would be kidding them self. She thinks for her self, she's not a "sheeple".
