Despite all the fear-mongering, emotionalism, and deceptive propaganda surrounding the issue of firearms, the principle that matters most is quite simple.
This short video is an excellent primer for anyone you know who's confused about the subject of guns.
Because Guam and Hawaii are part of the U.S.A. they get a metric ton of Gun Tourists. Although the Shop owners gouge the hell out of those people.
It was funny, when I was in Honolulu walking downtown they completely ignored me, while I could have been Australian (a Major Gun Tourist Group too) The Street Peddlers opted for the Asian Tourists through and through. Because they knew if I were an American, I would just go home and shoot my own XD
Because the bad ones are.
I saw that too way back in 1989 (I think, maybe 1990). I was at Pearl Harbor - surrounded by Japanese. When I went to the golf course - surrounded by Japanese. When I stopped by a place that happened to have a gun range, TONS of Japanese. All waiting in line to make the firestick go BANG.
I came home and told all my friend we no longer have to worry about the Japanese.
Great video and it gave me hope for future Patriots.
My Canadian in-laws are the same way, KC. They love to come down here and go shoot since they aren’t allowed guns.
That young woman wrote one of the most cogent and clear essays I’ve ever read or watched on guns, tyranny and freedom. Her delivery is tremendous and compelling. Thanks for posting.
My nephew lives in Germany,this summer he and a friend are coming here for a month.The first thing they want to do is go shooting.They are especially interested in my class 3 weapons and the sniper rifles.
Most people would be terrified at the thought that their world might soon transform into a state of complete "anarchy." However, in one sense that is precisely what humanity needs.
To many, the term "anarchy" implies violent chaos and bloody mayhem, and a complete breakdown of organized society-- a situation no decent person wants. What the word literally means, however, is "rule by no one," a society without any ruling class. And while people are right to believe that authoritarian "law and order" is the opposite of "anarchy," they are wrong to put their faith in the former, or to fear the latter. In fact, those events which best epitomize the negative meaning of "anarchy"--chaos, death and destruction--have always been the direct result of government. Yet many people still fear freedom more than they fear government.
More and more people are now coming to realize that what society really needs is not a new flavor of authoritarian domination, but a complete absence of political power (which should not be confused with a lack of cooperation or organization). Whether "left" or "right," government is never about getting along or cooperating; it is about one group of people forcibly extorting and controlling everyone else. This is why government, by its very nature, is fundamentally incompatible with peaceful coexistence, is never moral or legitimate, and never leads to peace or justice.
To improve the world, people need to let go of the statist mythology they were taught, and embrace instead some very basic principles: VOLUNTARYISM is the belief that all human interaction should be voluntary, free from fraud, coercion or violence; THE NON-AGGRESSION PRINCIPLE states that it is wrong to initiate violence against another, and that physical force is justified only when used to defend against aggression; SELF-OWNERSHIP means that every individual owns himself, and therefore owns the results of his time and effort.
These ideas are so simple and obvious that the average person, when he hears them described, imagines that he already agrees with them. However, most people--at least at first--fail to realize that such concepts completely rule out the possibility of government of any kind. Only a STATELESS SOCIETY is at all logically or morally compatible with non-aggression, self- ownership, and voluntaryism, because government, by its very nature, is always coercive and violent, and--to one degree or another, in one way or another--always infringes upon the self- ownership of the individual. (Those who say they want a "government" which only protects individual rights fail to realize that any purely defensive organization would not be "government," since it would have no power to tax or legislate, would have no monopoly, and would have no special power or authority.)
People are so accustomed to hearing "master plans" from politicians that they often have a hard time imagining actual freedom--a society that doesn't try to create a one-size-fits-all agenda for everyone, where instead, people can organize and cooperate in a million different ways. In other words, ANARCHY. To achieve such a society does not require any election, revolution, or political movement. It simply requires the people understanding and embracing the ideas of self-ownership and non-aggression, and letting go of the insane idea that civilization requires each individual to abandon his own free will and conscience in favor of blind obedience to a centralized ruling authority. When that lie dies, perpetual war and oppression will die with it.
As more and more people awaken to this truth, the power of the beast known as "government" diminishes, and the power of humanity grows. In a very real sense, the world really is on the brink of "anarchy": a society of free, equal, peaceful human beings. The age of statism and authoritarianism--and all the pain, injustice, suffering and death it has brought with it--is nearing its end. The age of peaceful coexistence, and a truly free and voluntary society, is about to begin. Whether you will be one of those helping to make this change happen, or one of those resisting it, is up to you.
I totally agree. I can just imagine her standing before Congress and delivering the same message to them as calmly and clearly as she did in her video. Her logic and reasoning are so airtight, there's literally no wiggle room for a gun grabber.
I found her talk so compelling that I'm assigning my three kids to study it in the coming week.
Right on, friend. My wife and I just finished researching (and deciding upon) a concealed carry weapon for her. We'll probably both do our CCW classes this summer.
What an outstanding statement. I don't know how close mankind really is to such a society, but I like the basic concept. It meshes quite well with the precepts our country was founded upon.
Because the political climate is turning thier back on crime and punishment to a more humanitarian social justice forgiveness program when it comes to Americans who love thier country and values
Good read. Thanks.
Not guilty !
She is amazing!
Can you imagine what 5 million, law abiding citizens could do if they marched, Armed, to DC?
Or of those same 5 Million decided one day not to spend any money? Or go on strike?
She is right on so many levels. This Government only seeks to oppress the people it sworn to protect. Both parties of this regime would have been tarred and feathered in 1776.
Yes, I can. The federal government would be restored to its founding configuration and functions within a matter of weeks, and roughly half the population would suddenly find themselves without a trough to feed in.
The 'Tree of Liberty' would finally be refreshed, and America would go back to resembling its true self overnight.
No kidding. Go to her site and watch the rest of her videos. This lady has the mind and character of our Framers.
She's that, too!
Excuse me? Canadians have lots of guns! You need to pass a safety course and a police check. We don’t have concealed carry and handguns must be shot on licensed ranges.
There is no legal right to possess arms in Canada. It takes sixty days to buy a gun there, and there is mandatory licensing for gun owners. Gun owners pursuing a license must have third-party references, take a safety training course and pass a background check with a focus on mental, criminal and addiction histories.
Licensing agents are required to advise an applicant’s spouse or next-of-kin prior to granting a license, and licenses are denied to applicants with any past history of domestic violence. Buyers in private sales of weapons must pass official background checks.
Canadian civilians aren’t allowed to possess automatic weapons, handguns with a barrel shorter than 10.5 cm or any modified handgun, rifle or shotgun. Most semi-automatic assault weapons are also banned. As a result of exemptions, several kinds of assault weapons are still legal in Canada, although this has been the source of some controversy.
