The ground war over gun control after the Newtown, Conn. massacre has begun. Across the country, members of Congress are being hit with grassroots campaigns and ads aimed at pushing them to one side or the other in the current debate over gun violence.

On Friday, the remnants of President Obama’s reelection campaign will hold its first “Day Of Action” since the November election, rallying its millions of supporters to join the call for gun control legislation at grassroots events nationwide

[snip] The National Rifle Association is targeting several members with ads of its own, running (full page news paper…) spots…….

We are a Constitutional Republic, not a Democracy. It doesn’t even matter what polling shows. If the Democrats throw away the legal processes required to achieve what they want to amend the U.S. Constitution, and pass unconstitutional laws restricting Second Amendment Rights, there is nothing binding the states to the federal government anymore. The Constitution will be dead you F*ing morons! We are already hearing the death rattle.

Gun Violence = Gun Ownership

Don't let the euphemisms fool you.

I never thought that I’d see the day that I’d become an active recruiter for the NRA. I’m telling everyone to join the NRA because it’s not only gun ownership at stake here. We are defending the Bill of Rights. ALL of the Bill of Rights. So far, I’ve been pretty successful with convincing people to join.

It’s ironic, but in 1775 our forefathers started a revolution against their government over far less tyranny and oppression than what we suffer under today. Far less.

Our forefathers would have been shooting by now.

However, I suspect that if and when the government comes for the guns things will get hot.

Also remember that when the pollies say they want to “get illegal guns off the streets”, they really mean “confiscate legally owned guns from citizens’ homes”.

With a footnote of “homes of gun owners who’ll never vote for me so I’m going to screw them right back!”

:: Obama means to disarm America - STOP him! :: More accurately, the US Government means to place itself independent to and above the Constitution, abrogating to itself the mantle of sole interpreter and applier of laws (HT: Ayn Rand). This requires the co-operation of all three branches. They are just about there... When in the course of human events it becomes neceffary .

Again:

:: Obama means to disarm America - STOP him! ::

More accurately, the US Government means to place itself independent to and above the Constitution, abrogating to itself the mantle of sole interpreter and applier of laws (HT: Ayn Rand).

This requires the co-operation of all three branches. They are just about there...

When in the course of human events it becomes neceffary < sic >.

Dead right. This is about their anger.

“get illegal guns off the streets”

You're being too generous. The mantra is to "get the guns off the streets". I wish I could find where these streets are.

This Quote is still valid today

“Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves.” Winston Churchill

So is this one:

You have it right. That is indeed the way the founding generation wrote that word in printed documents. I know someone will chime in with the back story.

“By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia,’ the ‘security’ of the nation, and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.” - President John F. Kennedy

Now, fifty years later, governmental tyranny is no longer unlikely. It has become a certainty.

(Obama's anti-gun agenda)

(Obama says, "Ban guns")

(Sandy Hook deaths politicized by Obama)

(Is Obama Already Politicizing Sandy Hook Shooting?)

Court Back a Ban on Concealed Weapons.....WSJ, February 24, 2013........Obama never meant to close Gitmo instead he means to dis-arm America....he never meant to use the bail outs to save the companies or our country....he used some of that money to pay back his unions and to give negro children a leg up over other children - to hire more Federal workers. Obama is sending more troops into Africa, his country...not ours...Barack Obama and his wife are not Democratic they are Third World Marxists....stopping his abuse of the Constitution is a must. Congress and the Senate must act....call your elected!

“This is about their anger.”

You’re right. Ever notice on those rare occasions when a gungrabber is confronted by the opposition, he or she usually flies into a sputtering rage?

We’re not “their kind of people”, that’s certain.

When Odumbo sends his first crew to take away guns and those who try doing so are shot at or worse, killed, all hell will break loose. I dread that day coming as it will pit friends agains’t friends, neighbors agains’t neighbors and brothers agains’t brothers. Another “civil war” will be upon us. And for what, the knee jerk reaction of politicians who are unable to lead, debate, solve real problems or compromise? Politicians who see themselves as “GODs”? Not in my book!
