"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

Thoughts from the ammo line; the Liberal Assault on Self-Defense
The following article appeared in
Powerline on March 2nd
Ammo Grrrll gives it BACK ATCHA!!
(Ed.: — and you know who “cha” are). She writes:
Because so few of the Professional
Hysterics at CNN, the New York Times, or Democrat Shriek-Fests have ever
actually fired a gun, they do not understand the very important concept of
“ricochet.” (Similarly, in Gaza, subliterate jihadis with an inadequate
understanding of the Laws of Gravity frequently fire weapons into the air to
celebrate a bold terrorist attack on elderly Holocaust survivors or a baby in a
crib, and are maimed or killed when those rounds fall to earth into their
hate-filled heads. Oopsie.)
Likewise, the relentless gun grabbers
at an orchestrated Town Hall fire wild accusations and ugly invective at
awesome NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch, at President Trump, at any defenders of
our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. And then they are completely
taken aback when their arguments bounce off their intended targets and come
back to hit them as their tissue of lies unravels. Turns out that the way Ms.
Loesch was treated at CNN’s Town Hall has been a great recruiting tool for NRA
membership. Ping! Ow! Ricochet!
Dana Loesch schools the mouthy Sheriff Israel
Two best-selling t-shirts at gun
shows are “I carry a 9 mm because a cop is too heavy,” and “When seconds count,
the cops are minutes away.” Never has a more heartbreaking illustration of the
truth of the latter slogan come to light than in the recent horror show in
An active shooter was on the rampage
inside a school and we learned that a man sworn to protect and serve was hiding
outside the building. Then we learned that there was not ONE man derelict in
his duty, but FOUR. My husband and I have known many soldiers from many wars,
and several fine officers of the law. Mr. AG said he simply does not believe
that all four of those men were unwilling to run toward danger as all of our
brave and selfless First Responders are taught to do. He believes it HAD to be
an order handed down from some swamp dweller above their pay grade.
Perhaps from Democrat Sheriff David
Israel himself who has bragged repeatedly that “the lion doesn’t care about the
opinions of the sheep.” If I were Mr. Israel, I would be reluctant to call
myself a “lion” lest it invoke the obvious comparison to the Cowardly Lion in
Wizard of Oz. Just sayin.’
"What've they got that I ain't got?"
I believe that most of the parents
would have run into the school with nothing but David’s slingshot and five
smooth stones if they thought they could divert fire away from their children
and towards themselves.
And still the gun grabbers would love
forcibly to confiscate our guns and abolish our right to self-defense. Do they
honestly believe that this episode should inspire us to outsource our safety to
Crouching Paper Tigers waiting somewhere safe until all the fuss dies down?
Sheriff Israel – pausing briefly from screaming at Dana Loesch and the NRA –
inadvertently let slip that what he needed was MORE power. Really? There’s a
catchy slogan: More power to cower! And this man still has a job?
Nikolas J. Cruz was a ticking time
bomb almost from birth. In the totality of this Epic Fail, gun ownership is the
least of it. If not a gun, it would have been a bomb, a truck, or arson. And
legal gun ownership by anyone else on earth had absolutely nothing to do with
Most of the other factors in the Epic
Fail besides the stand down of Law Enforcement cannot be said aloud. Let’s
start with Genetics, one of the biggest taboos of all. His birth mother did not
even know who the father was. Let me just say that there is scarcely a family
in America in which one young couple did not produce a baby fewer than 9 months
after the wedding. But very few women are so promiscuous, irresponsible, or
stupid that they have no idea who the father was. This woman arranged a private
adoption with Cruz’s long-suffering adoptive parents. With either a very long
learning curve or as a business model, the woman then had a second child with a
different father. This baby boy also was adopted by the Cruz family.
By age 3, Nikolas was diagnosed with
developmental difficulties and shortly thereafter with the whole panoply of
alphabet soup “disorders”: ADHD, Emotional-Behavioral Disorder, Depression,
Anxiety, Social Awkwardness. At 19, he had not yet graduated high school.
Cruz in custody, far too late
Let’s move on from Genetics to
misguided Social Justice Policy that came straight from Holder’s DOJ and Obama.
Because of the diversity industry’s aversion to any racial disparity in school
discipline – completely irrespective of who is actually causing the trouble! –
it is likely that this pale kid with the last name of “Cruz” was not given the
mental illness diagnosis or in-school arrests that would have kept legal guns
out of his hands forever.
Finally, let’s “have a conversation”
about how the great Leviathan of agencies in place to monitor problems didn’t
just DROP the ball, they kicked it away like a soccer goalie. Dozens of people
warned numerous agencies including the FBI about the shooter’s bizarre and
threatening behavior. In desperation, Cruz himself warned that he was
distraught about his mother’s death and losing control. The “if you see
something, say something,” popularized after 9/11, proved worse than useless. A
chorus not much smaller than The Mormon Tabernacle Choir “said things and said
things” to no avail. Reporting danger and being ignored is infinitely WORSE
than not reporting at all. It leads the conscientious callers to believe that
the problem is being solved, when nothing whatsoever has been done!
How then to address the problem of
school shootings? To you gleeful potential gun grabbers: You go first! Turn in
your ARs, your handguns, your knives, your baseball bats, your sharpened
spoons. Throw in your fireplace pokers and frozen legs of lamb. Put up a
mandatory sign outside your home advertising its morally superior quality:
“Weapon-Free Zone. Not One Thing With Which to Defend Ourselves Inside!” What
is holding you back?
In our over-55 development in
Arizona, there are surely hundreds to thousands of weapons, including many
AR-15s. In fact, when I attended a fundraising dinner for our county’s sheriff,
the raffle prize was an AR and sales lagged because everybody already had one.
Had every single gun in our complex been turned in on February 13, it would
have changed nothing in this or any other mass-murder disaster. Outside of a
pigeon who committed suicide by bb gun next door, there has never been a
shooting in our complex.
Harden the soft targets. Recruit vets
and other volunteers proficient with firearms to help protect schools. Get
serious about mental illness and repeat troublemakers without regard to quotas
based on race. Hey, kids, colored or pale, here’s a novel idea: if you don’t
want to be on the so-called school to prison fast track, don’t be a damn
criminal! Try the school to college track or the school to work track. It’s
really not all that hard. It’s not our sacred duty to make it easier for you to
repeatedly evade responsibility for your rotten and evil choices in life.
To whatever degree possible, make the
corporate gun grabbers pay financially. Here is Mr. AG’s final paragraph in his
cancellation letter to LifeLock requesting a refund:
“In case you are wondering, this is
in specific response to your severance of a business relationship you had with
the N.R.A. One of the reasons I paid you these past years is that I
expected that in case of an identity theft issue, you would be zealous and
determined on my behalf. Since you caved on the N.R.A. issue, I expect
that in case of genuine dispute over identity theft, you could cave on other
issues as well, especially if someone can make them controversial. Moral
cowardice renders an advocate worthless.”
H. L. Mencken said: “For every
complex problem, there is a solution that is clear, simple…and wrong.” If he
wasn’t talking about gun control, he should have been.
