GUN CONTROL HISTORY?

Did you know the following?

According to rense.com:

  • In 2919, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. This doesn’t include the 30 million that “Uncle Joe” starved to death in the Ukraine.
  • In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, leaving a populace unable to defend itself against the Gestapo and the SS. Hundreds of thousands died as a result.
  • China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unale to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. The total dear are said to be 2-3 million.
  • Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, 1 to 2 million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • Gun owners in Australia were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government in the late 1900s. This program cost the Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. First year results were as follows:
    • Australia-wide homicides went up 3.2 percent
    • Australia-wide assaults went up 8.6 percent.
    • Australia-wide, armed robberies went up 44 percent.
    • In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are no up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns.
  • Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th century because of gun control total 56 million at a bare minimum.

But the above could never happen in the United States. I think the Aussies might have said that also. While the figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, that changed drastically upward in the first year after gun confiscation, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

During World War II, the Japanese decided not to invade the USA because they knew most Americans were armed. Admiral Yamamoto, who crafted the attack on Pearly Harbor had attended Harvard University and was Naval Attaché to the United States from 1925 to 28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor and our Army had been deprived of finding and was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U.S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U.S. and knew that almost all households had guns.

There’s a lot of things that I don’t understand about the left, but their stance and desire to take guns away from law abiding American citizens. Just because some nutcase kills nine people in a church in South Carolina is not reason to disallow a single mother with small children to be able to protect herself and her family should an intruder try to get into her home.

Until recently, folks were content to be able to have guns in their homes and felt they did not necessarily need a carry permit. Now that it’s been determined that the current president has no interest in protecting the American people, his main duty as president under the constitution, it is becoming more important that law abiding Americans not only own guns, but obtain permits to carry guns.

THE DONALD TRUMP MYSTIQUE AND GUNS

Since he declared himself a candidate for the Republican Party’s nomination for President, I haven’t said much about Donald Trump. Now that he’s the front runner and likely to be the Republican nominee, I’ll weigh in.

When Mr. Trump initially entered the race, I didn’t think too much about him. Like many Republicans, I thought he would have “flash in the pan” popularity and then be out of the race. However, your average “conservative man/woman on the street” has bonded with him and may very well put him in the White House. Why is this? Read the following.

Donald Trump, the world’s best businessman, is not afraid to speak out. He doesn’t care about political correctness, nor does he care about the mainstream media’s reaction to him. When he says things that the left doesn’t like and considers offensive, Donald doesn’t sappily attempt to apologize. Instead he thumbs his nose at the left, and this is what the average conservative man/woman want to see.

In the last couple of decades, Republican politicians and office holders have become scared of their own shadows. They’re afraid of the mainstream media and the left, in general. They tippy-tippy-toe around trying to be as politically correct as possible. They’re so afraid of the current president shutting down the government, knowing the president, the mainstream media, and the left, in general, will blame the Congressional Republicans.

After Mr. Trump indicated that he would block all Muslims from immigrating to the United States until representatives could figure out what was going on, the White House indicated that Mr. Trump was not qualified and should end his candidacy. The left went on a “tear.” In addition to suggesting that he was not qualified to be president, the left indicated that any Republican who did not denounce Donald Trump was not qualified to be president. Thus Republican presidential candidates and prominent Republicans got in line with the liberals to denounce Donald Trump. Can you say scared of their own shadow?

Donald Trump is not afraid of saying it as he sees it. If he misspeaks, he may revise what he said to a certain degree, but he never walks anything back, nor does he apologize. He’s politically incorrect and proud of it. Most Americans sick and tired of political correctness, but afraid to be politically incorrect, lest the left attempt to do them harm.

Donald knows this, I discovered this after becoming a political blogger, but Republican politicians don’t seem to have figured it out yet: liberals are nothing but bullies. And what do most bullies do when you turn it right back at them, they tend to fade into the woodwork. Try it, it works.

I’m not comfortable with having someone in the White House who has had no political experience. Running a government is so very different from running a business. I favor someone who has had political experience and business experience. So, I would rather see some else get the nomination. But again, Republicans are scared of their own shadows, the left, and the mainstream media. And I think a lot of Trump’s success is due to the failure of Republicans to get their message out there and fight for what they believe. He’s definitely not my first choice, but if he’s the nominee, he will get my vote.

Now to the second part of this post, guns. Gun sales to Americans are going through the roof due to the indication of the current administration that will they not protect us, even though protecting American citizens is the number one responsibility of any president and his or her administration.

Having lived in the South all of my life, I’m perfectly okay with having guns in my house. When I was growing up, my Dad had guns and I knew where he kept them. I was not to go near them, and I didn’t. While I have kept a handgun to protect myself from intruders coming onto my property for most of my adult life, I never felt it necessary to obtain a carry permit. Now I do.

It’s not a matter of if we have another terrorist attack on American soil, it’s a matter of when. ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups have infiltrated the United States and those charged with protecting the American people will not do their jobs. Furthermore, this administration, the mainstream media, and the left in general are ever so slowly attempting to demoralize our local police forces. They are trying to set guidelines to render the police virtually feckless, thereby limiting their ability to protect people they are supposed to be serving. When I go somewhere, I’m subject to being the victim of perhaps a terrorist attack or criminal attack.

We have the worst president in my lifetime and perhaps in the entire history of the United States. We’re sitting ducks and must take responsibility for our own lives and those of our loved ones. I know it’s a personal choice, but think about it. We’re at a very critical cross-roads in the history of the United States of America. In order for our Democratic Republic to survive, we must take our country back. We can begin now with law abiding adult citizens purchasing firearms and learning how to use them.

ISN’T IT AMAZING HOW POLITICALLY CORRECT WE HAVE BECOME

On Monday, December 7, 2015, Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, called for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on. When I heard this, I thought, “oh no,” this is going to take up valuable news time that could best be spent on items that are more important than what Donald Trump says, even though there is a chance that he might be the next President of the United States.

Of course, the Democrats were lining up to call out Mr. Trump with their usual fiery rhetoric. The White House claimed that he should be expunged from the list of presidential candidates because his word disqualified him from becoming president. The White House went on to further indicate that any Republican presidential candidate that does not denounce Donald Trump is not qualified to be president. Thus, the Republicans were lining up to denigrate the Republican frontrunner.

When I examined exactly what Mr. Trump said, I saw that he actually proposed a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what’s going on. “Until our country’s representatives can figure out what’s going on.” It doesn’t appear that Mr. Trump is calling for a permanent shutdown of Muslims entering the country, but a shutdown until our country’s representatives can so something, whatever that is.

Democrats/liberals regularly take things out of context like cutting off words. The fact that they didn’t take into consideration the words, “Until our country’s representatives can figure out what’s going on.” However, it looks as though many Republicans are doing the same thing. Instead of asking Mr. Trump what he meant by those words, they lined up as I described above to further bash Mr. Trump and call for him to step down as a presidential candidate.

Bill O’Reilly, yesterday evening (December 8, 2015), didn’t mention it on The O’Reilly Factor. I know Bill claims to be a fair and balanced independent and not a Republican. But I would have thought he would have mentioned those last few words uttered by Mr. Trump. There were some guests on the O’Reilly Factor that argued for limiting Muslim immigrants coming in from certain radical Muslim nations until the United States can properly vet them.

Yesterday, it was also brought to the forefront, primarily on social media, that former President Jimmy Carter banned Iranians from coming to the United States during the hostage crisis in 1980. The only way that they would be let in was for emergency medical treatment. Also, in November 1979, the Attorney General gave all Iranian students on month to report to the local immigration office. Around 7,000 were found to be in violation of their visas.

Jimmy Carter was a Democrat, but I doubt that back in 1979/1980 a Republican administration proposing similar procedures would have caused such an outcry with Democrats, except maybe the very, very radical leftists.

Fast-forward to 2015 and what have we got. Democrats, including the White House, stating that because of what he said, Donald Trump is not qualified to be president. And the Republicans are just about as bad, fighting to get to the beginning of the line where they can also denounce Donald Trump.

Sadly, over time, the United States has become a bastion of political correctness. It’s gotten into everyone, including me, I’m sure. Whenever a public figure utters something that not only the left, but also some on the right, feel is racist, sexist, homophobic, etc., everyone is out there to condemn that person and the media spends days talking about it, some of the time neglecting what’s really important. Also, if you’re a public figure and don’t condemn it, you, yourself, will be condemned.

Congress, along with the current administration, should be looking at ways to properly vet certain groups of Muslims when they seek to enter the United States. And until procedures can be developed and implemented, perhaps some restrictions on immigration of Muslims should be put in place. This is what should be discussed in the wake of Donald Trump’s comments, but it won’t. It won’t be discussed and no procedures will be put in place to properly vet Muslims who come to this country as immigrants. Why? Because we’re too busy attempting to destroy someone who said something that was certainly crass and controversial.

It looks as though the left is, over time, accomplishing their goal of destroying those that don’t tow the liberal line. To keep this from happening, all Republicans/Conservatives must cease being scared of their own shadows. They must quit worrying about how the mainstream media and the left will label them. If we want to take back our country, we’re going to have to fight for it and be willing to accept the punches and blows that the liberals, including, the media, are sure to inflict.

LIBERALS LOVE RACISM AND SEXISM

I watched a small segment of presidential candidate, Dr. Ben Carson, being interviewed by Chris Wallace this past Sunday on Fox News Sunday. Dr. Carson has dropped in the poles mostly due to his stumbling on foreign policy following the November 13 terrorist attacks in Paris. Chris grilled Dr. Carson and asked him why he thought people were turning away from him. I don’t remember the answer that he gave, but one thing he didn’t use as an excuse was racism. If this had been the current president of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, both democrats, racism and sexism would be been brought into the conversations.

The current president has always used racism as an excuse when he has failed to win the support of the American people, and it seems like Hillary Clinton throws out sexism every time she is asked a tough question. Of course, the liberals, especially the liberals in the media, are all too glad to rally around these two.

As I indicated above, Dr. Carson, to the best of my knowledge has never played the race card, nor has presidential candidate Carly Fiorina every played the sex card. That’s not Republicans/Conservatives do in the second decade of the twenty-first century.

Furthermore, I have not seen the NAACP nor NOW, coming to the rescue of Dr. Carson or Ms. Fiorina when they have been treated less than respectful by the media and people who oppose them. When Dr. Carson was called vile things, I often asked where the Reverends Jackson and Sharpton were and where the NAACP was.

If I had a dollar for every time I have said or written that liberals care nothing about minorities or women, I wouldn’t be here tapping away at this keyboard. This declaration is nothing new.

Liberals claim they want to end racism with intentional motives to destroy anyone they believe is a racist, according to their definition or racism at the moment. And if liberals can’t ascertain a vile thing to call conservatives when they disagree, they accuse the conservative of racism.

I once had a black liberal friend who indirectly accused me of being racist because I don’t eat turnip greens or collards. This same friend, if she went to a McDonald’s to eat and a white teenage clerk acted in the least bit like he or she didn’t want to wait on my friend, my friend would accuse the white teenager of racism, obsess about it for days and vow to never visit that McDonald’s again. I firmly believe that this black liberal friend would be miserable if she had to quit looking under every rock for something racist.

The fact that my friend comes up with all of this silly stuff and fashions it as racism is sad. What she’s doing is covering up incidents of true racism where individuals are actually hurt in serious ways with her, “if you don’t eat turnip greens and collards, you’re a racist.”

Do liberals want to end racism and sexism? Of course not! Do liberals care about minorities and women? Of course not! They don’t care about anyone else either. All they care about is forcing their big government/totalitarian agenda down our throats and taking control of our lives. In addition to the foregoing, what would liberals use as an excuse for their failures if they didn’t have racism and sexism to shout about?

I have no doubt that is was the left who attempted to stir the pot, getting blacks who are attending historically predominantly white colleges and universities, to whine and say they don’t feel safe and that they are the victims of racism and to demand that safe areas be made available to them. This seems to have all but disappeared. Probably because it laid an egg.

At my alma mater, the most popular guy on campus is black. He’s also strong, fast, a Godly young man, and possibly the best college football player in the nation. Derrick Henry not feeling safe on the campus of the University of Alabama? That’s almost as ridiculous as accusing someone of being a racist because they don’t like turnip greens.

LIBERALS GETTING BOLD

With the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris last month and in San Bernadino, California last week, the current administration seems to be taking a hit from the electorate for their actions in the wake of these travesties. Furthermore, it is looking more and more that Republicans may take the presidency in 2016. If this happens and the Republicans maintain control of the Senate and the House of Representatives, liberals are going to find themselves without representation except for maybe in the media.

Because of the above it appears that liberals are getting even bolder when it comes to their goals of fundamentally transforming the United States of America into a socialist/totalitarian state which include removing God and Christianity completely out of our society, repealing the second amendment and outlaw the American citizens’ right to bear arms, forcing climate change regulations down our throats, continued demonization of local law enforcement, etc.

The December 3 edition of The New York Daily News featured on its front page, the bold heading, “God Isn’t Fixing This.” You’re average grass roots/on the street liberal will tell you that freedom to practice your religion still exists, but we shouldn’t keep religion out of public places because someone might be offended. We all know that this means that we should keep Christianity and Judaism out of the public place. Islam appears to be welcome.

In the December 3 New York Daily News posts tweets from the following Republicans, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Lindsey Graham, and Paul Ryan. Their tweets indicated that thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the San Bernardino, California shooting. The bottom of the front page reads as follows: “As large batch of innocent Americans are left lying in pools of blood, cowards who could truly end gun scourge continue to hide behind meaningless platitudes.

This is a direct assault on Christianity by the media and it should scare every one of us to death. What’s coming next? In fact, I don’t ever recall such a direct assault on Christianity as this one by a public entity. Will this bring an onslaught of similar attacks on Christianity?

On Friday, December 4, Salon.com published an article entitled, “The Second Amendment must go: We ban law darts. It’s time to ban guns.” While we all know that it is a goal of the left to disarm American citizens and abolish the second amendment, liberals generally don’t say that. Instead, they say we need more gun control laws and gun free zones. Again, this is a bold new move by liberals to tell us what they really think and have outlined for America’s future.

According to 100percentfedup.com, an article entitled, “Holy Freedom of Speech? Obama’s Attorney General Promises to Punish Americans for Anti-Muslim Speech”, indicates that Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, pledged to a group of Muslim activists that she would take aggressive action against anyone who used “anti-Muslim rhetoric” that “edges toward violence.” Assuring the pro-Muslim group that “we stand with you,” Lynch said she would use her Justice Department to protect Muslims from “violence” and discrimination. The author of the article asks what exactly is speech that “edges toward violence?” What exactly are “actions predicated on violent talk?” We all know that the answers to these questions is whatever Attorney General Lynch, or anyone in the current administration decides it to mean. Just like racism.

It’s not the purpose of this writing to analyze the above assaults on basic American values, but to illustrate that liberals, thinking they may lose all power in 2016, are scrambling to put their agenda in place while their side still has the bully pulpit.

It will be very interesting to see what follows in the coming months.
