Exclusive: Joseph Farah stresses absurdity of expecting police to protect you
Maybe youre one of those people who doesnt think youll ever need a gun or want one.
After all, all one has to do in 21st century America is call 911 when youre faced with danger, right?
The first time I realized I needed a gun was as a young man living in a nice section of Los Angeles. It was not the kind of neighborhood in which one expected to experience a home invasion. Yet, one night, thats what I was faced with. It started with a knock on the door a very solid, wooden door with only a peephole that permitted me to check out the visitor.
I did not recognize the visitor, and asked him politely to identify himself. Instead, he started pounding on the door and demanding to be let in.
Eventually he began to batter the door with rocks and other objects.
So I called 911.
An hour or so later, long after the intruder got tired of battering the door and left of his own accord, the LAPD sent over a female police officer to check it out. An hour later.
Thats when I decided to get my first gun.
My second lesson came shortly thereafter when a Satan-worshipping Hispanic gang, associated with Night Stalker Richard Ramirez, surrounded and trashed my car one night while I was at work in downtown L.A. When I entered the parking lot through a dark alley, the gang members were whooping it up around bonfires, the air thick with marijuana smoke and the asphalt covered with broken liquor and beer bottles.

(Mr. Soetoro, we regret to inform you that your race card is over the credit limit.)
The reasons Citizens should be carrying guns are the same reasons Police Officers do carry guns.
And then on top of that add the reasons of guarding liberty against tyranny.

The United States Citizens KNOW that they're going to have to fight TYRANTS in their own government.
So does the ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN CHIEF.
That's WHY he's going after guns, to protect his own life so he can destroy you.
You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.
While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.
All people of a responsible age should be armed.
The Second Amendment IS Pro-Life.
"Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these:
First, a right to life; These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation,
Secondly, to liberty;
Thirdly, to property;
together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can.
commonly called the first law of nature...If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation.
In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society,
to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights;
when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights;
the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property.
The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty,
it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift
and voluntarily become a slave."

Let us NEVER FORGET THAT !
Let's subjugate them to OUR end game, DUST! "COMPROMISE"
is a DIRTY word
People who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction
It's time to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.
The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss
and implement their "gun control measures"
here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters"
" Today, military service for Swiss males is universal. At about age 20, every Swiss male goes through 118 consecutive days of recruit training in the Rekrutenschule. ...
Even before required training begins, young men and women may take optional courses with the Swiss army's M57 assault rifle.
They keep that gun at home for three months and receive six half-day training sessions.
From age 21 to 32, a Swiss man serves as a "frontline" troop in the Auszug, and devotes three weeks a year (in eight of the 12 years) to continued training.
From age 33 to 42, he serves in the Landwehr (like America's National Guard); every few years, he reports for two-week training periods.
Finally, from ages 43, to 50, he serves in the Landsturm; in this period, he only spends 13 days total in "home guard courses."
Over a soldier's career he also spends scattered days on mandatory equipment inspections and required target practice.
Thus, in a 30-year mandatory military career, a Swiss man only spends about one year in direct military service.
Following discharge from the regular army, men serve on reserve status until age 50 (55 for officers).
By the Federal Constitution of 1874, military servicemen are given their first equipment, clothing and arms.
After the first training period, conscripts must keep gun, ammunition and equipment an ihrem Wohnort ("in their homes") until the end of their term of service.
Today, enlisted men are issued M57 AUTOMATIC assault rifles and officers are given pistol.
Each reservist is issued 24 rounds of ammunition in sealed packs for emergency use.
(Contrary to Handgun Control's claim that "all ammunition must be accounted for," the emergency ammunition is the only ammo that requires accounting.)
After discharge from service, the man is given a bolt rifle free from registration or obligation.
Starting in the 1994, the government will GIVE ex-reservists assault rifles. Officers carry pistols rather than rifles and are given their pistols the end of their service.
When the government adopts a new infantry rifle, it sells the old ones to the public.
Reservists are encouraged to buy MILITARY ammunition
(7.5 and 5.6mm-5.56 mm in other countries-for rifles and 9 and 7.65 mm Luger for pistols)which is sold AT COST by the government, for target practice .
Non-military ammunition for long-gun hunting and .22 Long Rifle (LR) ammo are not subsidised, but are subiect to NO sales controls.
Non-military non-hunting ammunition more powerful than .22 LR (such as .38 Spl.) is registered at the time of sale.
Swiss military ammo must be registered IF bought at a private store, BUT NEED NOT BE REGISTERED IF bought at a range.
The nation's 3,000 shooting ranges sell the overwhelming majority of ammunition.
Technically, ammunition bought at the range must be used at the range, but the rule is barely known and almost never obeyed.
The army SELLS a variety of machine guns, submachine guns, anti-tank weapons, anti-aircraft guns, howitzers and cannons.
Purchasers of these weapons require an EASILY OBTAINED cantonal license, and the weapons are registered.
In a nation of six million people, there are at least two million guns, including 600,000 FULLY AUTOMATIC assault rifles, half a million pistols, and numerous machine guns.
Virtually every home has a gun.
Besides SUBSIDIZED military surplus, the Swiss can buy other firearms easily too.
While long guns require NO special purchase procedures, handguns are sold only to those with a Waffenerwerbsschien (purchase certificate) issued by a cantonal authority.
A certificate is issued to every applicant over 18 who is not a criminal or mentally infirm.
There are NO restrictions on the carrying of long guns.
About half the cantons have strict permit procedures for carrying handguns, and the other half have NO rules at all.
There is NO discernible difference in the crime rate between the cantons as a result of the different policies.
Thanks to a lawsuit brought by the Swiss gun lobby, semi-automatic rifles require NO PURCHASE PERMIT and are NOT registered by the government.
Thus, the ONLY long guns registered by the government are FULL AUTOMATICS."
The Swiss have got it CORRECT !Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !
The beauty of the Second Amendment is
that it will not be needed
until they TRY to take it.
Read Second Amendment: Its Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .

“I could have been killed that night. But, had I been armed, probably a single gunshot in the air would have prevented any threat.”
Bzzzt. Shoot center of mass or don’t shoot at all.

SCOTUS has ruled that the police do not have an obligation to protect us.
Anyone who thinks we should give up our guns and let the police protect us is an idiot.

I’d like to see an amendment (or a new law to override any executive action) to any gun laws passed that limits the number,and types, of weapons and magazines for any police, government agency, secret service, or any military firearm used inside the U.S. or any of its territories to the same limits that civilians are allowed to have. This would include flashbang grenades, automatic weapons, etc.
Let’s see how quick the government backs down, because they can’t really explain why these groups of people need such weapons any more than do civilians.
Could someone post the information about the SCOTUS decision that says police aren’t required to protect the citizenry?

It’s time to call guns in the hands of citizens by the proper term, which is NOT Assault Weapons, but DEFENSE WEAPONS.

(Sorry, Mr. Franklin, I guess we couldn't keep it.)
Step one: Get the gun.
Step Two: Call 911. Ask that they send a hearse and the coroner.
