“Red Flag” Laws: Why Gun Owners Miss the Point

Posted on  by 

“What is it about gun owners that make us argue stupid things? We get all facts and logic about something but the reality is that facts and logic don’t change minds. If facts and logic worked to change minds, no one would be pro-gun control.

Case in point. So-called “Red Flag” laws. Sometimes called “Extreme Risk Protection Orders,” these laws basically say that someone can report you to the government, usually in secret, and a judge will secretly order your guns seized without ever giving you a chance to dispute it in court. At some later date, you are expected to show up in court, with a lawyer you’ve paid for, and try to get the judge to agree that you’re not a danger to anyone.

Cue the gun rights activists:
“WHAT ABOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW?!!!

This seems like a fair criticism, doesn’t it? Secret Star Chamber rulings that take away enumerated fundamental civil rights seems like it would be totally against the Constitution. Kind of a slam dunk 4th and 14th Amendment violations.

Here’s the problem.

NO ONE CARES

Is that a little harsh for you? Too bad. No one gives two hoots in hell about the due process of law for gun owners. The gun grabbers actively want to prevent you from getting any due process, and the middle ground people just don’t give a damn one way or another.

Why does this matter? Because gun owners are so stupid that they make unpersuasive arguments that no one but they care about. Only gun owners actually care about due process of law for gun owners. So stop making the argument and pretending that you’re moving public opinion.

NO ONE CARES.

To my mind, there’s a much better argument against the so-called “Red Flag” laws.

They don’t work.

It’s not because they are gun control laws and gun control laws by their very nature just don’t work. No, “Red Flag” laws don’t work because they were never intended to work. They literally cannot achieve their stated purpose.

Let’s take a look…

Imagine that you were a person of goodwill, just trying to prevent crazy people from doing damage to the rest of society with their craziness. For the purpose of this discussion, “crazy” encompasses everything from “psychotic” to “hate people because of their skin color.” While technically being a racist isn’t in the DSM-V (as far as I know), people who murder others based on their skin tone are crazy for our purposes. Regular well-adjusted people (even racist ones) don’t murder people. Only crazy people do that.

For the purposes of this discussion, we’re going to imagine the “best-case scenario.” In this case, the “Red Flag” law works EXACTLY as it is intended. Nothing at all goes wrong. No one does anything foolish, stupid, venal, or criminal in the process. Everything works perfectly.

  • A person is actually dangerously crazy for whatever reason.
  • A person with a legitimate concern goes to the appropriate reporting agency and reports that the person is dangerous.
  • The reporting agency does its due diligence and verifies all the information given to them.
  • That agency takes the reporting person in front of a judge, who carefully evaluates the reports of the person reporting and the agency that evaluated the situation
  • After careful review, the judge comes to the correct conclusion that the dangerously crazy person is actually a danger to himself or others and authorizes the seizure of his/her firearms.
  • The local police, in a carefully planned and perfectly executed mission capture the dangerously crazy person, expertly search his house, car, and all his possessions, and seize every single firearm the dangerously crazy person has.
  • Then they walk away, leaving the dangerously crazy person free to do whatever he wants with the kitchen knives, gasoline, and the chemicals under the sink.

Remember, this scenario is the BEST CASE SCENARIO.

Let Gru explain the process to you:

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Would anyone with even half a brain have come up with this stupidity? Get a judge to rule that a person is dangerously crazy but instead of putting him somewhere he can be helped (or punished) just leave him on the side of the road after taking his guns? No one with a lick of sense would even consider a law this dumb. A two-year-old could figure out that if a person is so dangerous that you need to take his firearms, he’s so dangerous that you need to invite him for a custodial stay at the happy place with the nice young men in clean white coats. Or he needs to go to jail.

This is how you know that the gun grabbers are lying. They say, “It’s not about the guns, it’s about safety!” But in the end, all they’ve done is seize the guns. No attempt is made to put the dangerously crazy person in a mental institution. Nope, just take the guns. It’ll be fine!

So-called “Red Flag” laws are a lie. There’s no way to make them work. They aren’t designed to work. They’re designed to violate your civil rights while not actually solving the problem of preventing crazy people from killing themselves or others.

Stop making the weak Due Process argument. Judges might be interested in that argument once it gets into court, but the public doesn’t care. Use a stronger argument. That argument is “If you’ve gone to all the trouble to convince a judge that dude is nuts, why not take dude down to a safe and secure location where he can get the treatment he needs?”

Anyone who cannot be trusted with a firearm cannot be trusted without a custodian.”

Something That Isn’t Taught In Schools in America That Should Be

~The real reason Thomas Jefferson owned a copy of the Quran~

“A 232 Year History of our fight against Islam & why it is no longer taught
in our public schools…

When Thomas Jefferson saw there was no negotiating with Muslims, he formed
what is now the Marines (seagoing soldiers). These Marines were attached to
U. S. Merchant vessels. When the Muslims attacked U.S. merchant vessels they
were repulsed by armed soldiers, but there is more.

The Marines followed the Muslims back to their villages and killed every
man, woman, and child in the village.

It didn’t take long for the Muslims to leave U.S. Merchant vessels alone.

English and French merchant vessels started running up our flag when
entering the Mediterranean to secure safe travel.

Why the Marine Hymn contains the verse, “To the Shores of Tripoli “.

This is very interesting and a must-read piece of our history. It points out
where we may be heading.

Most Americans are unaware of the fact that over two hundred years ago
The United States had declared war on Islam, and Thomas Jefferson led the
charge!

At the height of the 18th century, Muslim pirates (the “Barbary Pirates”)
were the terror of the Mediterranean and a large area of the North Atlantic
.

They attacked every ship in sight and held the crews for exorbitant
ransoms. Those taken hostage were subjected to barbaric treatment and wrote
heart-breaking letters home, begging their governments and families to pay
whatever their Mohammedan captors demanded.

These extortionists of the high seas represented the North African Islamic
nations of Tripoli, Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers – collectively referred to
as the Barbary Coast – and presented a dangerous and unprovoked threat to
the new American Republic.

Before the Revolutionary War, U.S. merchant ships had been under the
protection of Great Britain. When the U.S. declared its independence and
entered into war, the ships of the United States were protected by France.

However, once the war was won, America had to protect its own fleets.

Thus, the birth of the U.S. Navy. Beginning in 1784, 17 years before he
would become president, Thomas Jefferson became America’s Minister to
France. That same year, the U.S. Congress sought to appease its Muslim
adversaries by following in the footsteps of European nations who paid
bribes to the Barbary States rather than engaging them in war.

In July of 1785, Algerian pirates captured American ships and the Dye of
Algiers demanded an unheard-of ransom of $60,000. It was a plain and simple
case of extortion, and Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed to any
further payments.

Instead, he proposed to Congress the formation of a coalition of allied
nations who together could force the Islamic states into peace. A
disinterested Congress decided to pay the ransom.

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to
Great Britain to ask by what right his nation attacked American ships and
enslaved American citizens, and why Muslims held so much hostility towards
America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

The two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman
Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that
it was written in their Quran that all nations who would not acknowledge
their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war
upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could
take as prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in
the battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

Despite this stunning admission of premeditated violence on non-Muslim
nations, as well as the objections of many notable American leaders,
including George Washington, who warned that caving in was both wrong and
would only further embolden the enemy, for the following fifteen years, the
American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe
passage of American ships or the return of American hostages.

The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to over 20 percent of the United
States government annual revenues in 1800.

Jefferson was disgusted. Shortly after his being sworn in as the third
President of the United States in 1801, the Pasha of Tripoli sent him a note
demanding the immediate payment of $225,000 plus $25,000 a year for every
year forthcoming.

That changed everything.

Jefferson let the Pasha know, in no uncertain terms, what he could do with
his demand. The Pasha responded by cutting down the flagpole at the American
consulate and declared war on the United States.

Tunis, Morocco, and Algiers immediately followed suit.

Jefferson, until now, had been against America raising a naval force for
anything beyond coastal defense, but, having watched his nation be cowed by
Islamic thuggery for long enough decided that it was finally time to meet
force with force.

He dispatched a squadron of frigates to the Mediterranean and taught the
Muslim nations of the Barbary Coast a lesson he hoped they would never
forget. Congress authorized Jefferson to empower U.S. ships to seize all
vessels and goods of the Pasha of Tripoli and to “cause to be done all other
acts of precaution or hostility as the state of war would justify”.

When Algiers and Tunis, who were both accustomed to American cowardice and
acquiescence saw the newly independent United States had both the will and
the right to strike back, they quickly abandoned their allegiance to
Tripoli.

The war with Tripoli lasted for four more years and raged up again in 1815.
The bravery of the U.S. Marine Corps in these wars led to the line “to the
shores of Tripoli” in the Marine Hymn, and they would forever be known as
“leathernecks” for the leather collars of their uniforms, designed to
prevent their heads from being cut off by the Muslim scimitars when boarding
enemy ships.

Islam, and what its Barbary followers justified doing in the name of their
prophet and their god disturbed Jefferson quite deeply.

America had a tradition of religious tolerance. In fact Jefferson, himself,
had co-authored the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, but
fundamentalist Islam was like no other religion the world had ever seen.

A religion based on supremacy, whose holy book not only condoned but
mandated violence against unbelievers was unacceptable to him.

His greatest fear was that someday this brand of Islam would return and pose
an even greater threat to the United States.

This should concern every American. That Muslims have brought about
women-only classes and swimming times in America at taxpayer-funded
universities and public pools; that Christians, Jews, and Hindus have been
banned from serving on juries where Muslim defendants are being judged;
Piggy banks and Porky Pig tissue dispensers have been banned from workplaces
because they offend Islamist sensibilities; ice cream has been discontinued
at certain Burger King locations because the picture on the wrapper looks
similar to the Arabic script for Allah; public schools are pulling pork from
their menus; on and on.

It’s death by a thousand cuts, or inch-by-inch as some refer to it, and most
Americans have no idea that this battle is being waged every day across
America. By not fighting back, by allowing groups to obfuscate what is
really happening, and not insisting that the Islamists adapt to our culture,
the United States is cutting its own throat with a politically correct
knife, and helping to further the Islamists’ agenda.

Sadly, it appears that today America’s leaders would rather be politically
correct than victorious!

IF YOU DO NOT REMEMBER THE PAST, YOU ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.”

Unapologetically American

                                         I came. I saw. I conquered. — Julius Caesar

 

It’s very frustrating and discouraging to be a Man in today’s world. Everyday real men are being inundated with slick media campaigns, television shows, billboards, bus ads…. etc., in attempts to make a “fundamental change” in our Manliness and ultimately, Our Country. I  refuse to succumb to the “Oprah-ization” of America.

On my planet,  there are in fact, differences between the male and female of the species. I believe that it is “settled science” (I took anatomy and physiology classes in college). And, ask ANY Man who has been in a “relationship” with a Woman, he will tell you that there “profound” emotional and “psycho”-illogical differences as well.

All Man humor aside (Not funny to most women), this essay is my personal rant about the fall of the  American Empire much like the Roman Empire. Much like the Romans, in the beginning, the American people were proud, just and honorable and inventive people. America was a worldwide stabilizing force, you screw with our friends, and we’ll kick your ass around the block! America was founded upon Judeo-Christian values. A belief in God, Family, hard work and fair play ruled dominant over the land. And just like the Romans, America is now being destroyed from within by the new “Four Horsemen,” Greed, Apathy, Deception, and Stupidity.

At six years old, my stepson made the comment that gave me pause. A comment that echoed into the far past of my childhood, “Mommy, why does James watch the news and yell at the TV.?” I remember wondering the same thing as a child about my own father. I realized that I have, at least some, influence over the little people in the household. I realize now that I unlike my own father, have a responsibility to put my rants into some context that even a child (many “adult” Americans) can understand. I have a responsibility to educate these children on how to be good people and instill into them their proper role in society at large. Yes, “boys will be boys,” however we have a duty to turn them into good Men.

So, I decided to take on the subjects affecting our lives every day and address these using only the brain power given to me by genetics and God, to put a “beat-down” on all the nonsense of modern or contemporary life in America. Damn-it, it’s time for men to be Men and women to be Women, again.

For you feminist pandering, lingerie, “manscara” wearing metrosexual pussies out there, my words are NOT for you.

 

                     One man with courage makes a majority. — Andrew Jackson

On Friday, 05/08/2015, NYPD Officer Brian Moore was laid to rest by family and friends. Officer Moore was the 5th law enforcement officer killed in the line of duty in 5 months. There were Justice Department and Obama Administration officials present to offer sympathy and words of encouragement to the family and fellow officers…..Uh, you say.  You didn’t know that? Of course not. The Obama Administration only sends representatives to the funerals of “Thugs” (Oops. I forgot that’s the new “N-word.”) and criminals.

That Officer, a kid (25 years old), had 150 arrests. He was great at his job….no, his commitment, his promise to keep the people within his city safe. Every day, as tens of thousands across this great nation do every day, put on his uniform, badge and gun. He left his home each morning probably not contemplating whether he would return that night. Unlike those parasites (some elected) who victimize Americans every day, again, some elected, Officer Moore risked his life to keep the citizens of New York safe.

All over Our great nation, there are Men and Women who mutually pledge to each other their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. But virtually none of these people can be found within the seats of Power in Our Government.

We now live in a time of lawlessness the scope of which has probably never been seen. Pundits blame this societal upheaval on everything from poverty to selfies. We will never get the lawlessness under control until We the People get Our own Government under control. I get it. I understand the mentality. “Why should I have to follow the rules, i.e. the Rule of Law, if my own President doesn’t. If my President can use UAV’s to kill his enemies, why can’t I kill the competitive drug dealer down the block?” “If my Congressman can take money from lobbyist without consequences, why can’t I cheat my insurance company?”

Our Country, our very beginnings were based upon a very simple moral and ethical code. Governments are instituted among men for mutual security. WE ARE THE GOVERNMENT. At least that’s how it’s supposed to be. Citizens are beholding only to each other, not to any government. Notice, I said citizens and NOT Illegal Aliens!

To be a good Man, one must understand history. World history and American history. And we as parents must take up that responsibility. The “State” will only use propaganda to “educate” your child for its own benefit.

For those of you my age (celebrating the 26th anniversary of my 25th Birthday), we understand this well. In 5th grade when the girls were pulled out of class for a “special” assembly, they were talked to about what it meant to become a woman. No, it wasn’t about spending one’s life catering to the needs of your Man, if only.

It seems now we’ve learned that our generation and the preceding ones had it all wrong. Now, in ELEMENTARY classrooms all over the country, Our children are being taught the correct subject matter. Now, 5th and 6th graders are being taught the correct way to use a “strap-on” and condoms, read books called…”My Two Daddies” or “I Have Two Mommies.” Masturbation is good, clean, and healthy fun. And the New Madness, “gender neutrality.” So, now we’ve allowed the state to start “educating” Our children that gender is irrelevant. Boys and girls are the same. We have allowed so-called educators to turn innocent childhood “dress-up” into “Johnny wants to be a girl. So, we should ENCOURAGE him to be just that.” News Flash morons! Two-year-old Johnny doesn’t understand nor cares about whether or not his goldfish is a “boy” or not. He sure as hell has no rational thoughts other than shoes are shoes. Mommy’s or Daddy’s, doesn’t matter. They’re just fun to wear.

And hundreds of thousands of “parents” (Liberal lemmings) are bringing children into the world and not allowing anyone to “label” their child as a boy or girl. Gender neutral nursery colors, gender-neutral clothing, gender-neutral toys, and gender-neutral names. It’s so sad and pathetic, I’m guessing the man…er, male,  just fell into her vagina! I mean if one is so set upon the idea of gender neutrality, how does one figure out how to procreate?

These people are mentally ill. If this shit had started at the beginning of the evolution of the human species, safe to say I wouldn’t be here ranting about it!

The Most Important role for a Real Man is the creation of a loving and stable family unit. One Man and One Woman.

Not to rant about the whole gay marriage issue….oh, screw it! It’s One Man AND One Woman you morons! As you can probably guess, I’m a bit anti-gay marriage. Okay, more than a bit. It’s more like OH, HELL NO! Now “guys,” before you get your little panties in a wad, let me explain.

First of all, I, like many others I’m sure, believe that the “state” should have no role what-so-ever in marriage. Our Founding Fathers didn’t take their woman and run off to the county clerk of court, ask for the form for a marriage license, fill it out, get it notarized and pay a fee, all in order to ask the permission of the STATE to be married. The only person asked for permission to marry was the father of the bride. With his blessing it was off to the CHURCH, again NOT the courthouse, to get married before GOD and those present.

“Marriage” is a tradition born out of RELIGION. Every single culture in the world has a ceremony for the union of a MAN and a WOMAN. And, without exception, involved some kind of God, Goddess, Supernatural spirit or being, involved somehow, someway.

So my stance is that you can have a “civil ceremony” (at the courthouse) and reap all the benefits AND sorrows of a “lifetime” commitment, however, don’t call it marriage. And stop trying to shove a minority viewpoint about a lifestyle down Our collective throats…pun intended. Hey Hillary, you want to talk about the “tyranny of the minority against the majority?” Hint, it’s not guns, it’s “gay rights!” Roughly 3% of the population FORCING their viewpoint upon the 97% majority of this country!

What is happening now in Our country is a split between those who would hold to tradition, an Oath and Allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, the Rule of Law and those whose desire it is to shake off their perceived chains of bondage enumerated by those very documents of which they have no understanding. They have little to no understanding of the sacrifices made and bloodshed in order to defend their “Rights”.

Our children exposed to those who espouse a lone secularized belief system all the while subjecting them to the immoral and unhealthy rationalizations of academia and the media according to contemporary philosophy. These individuals outright dismiss the rights and responsibilities of parents, family, and religion. Like it or not, believe or not, Religion is the fundamental underpinning of EVERY society. The fact that you live in a society based on the “Rule of Law” came about in no small part but for religion. Religion creates the social bond that each individual has with each other. It created and affirmed the “social contract” we all share. It is the very basis for ALL codified law since the Code of Hammurabi. When our Founding Fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, they used the word “Creator”. Whom did you think that meant. They stated our Rights come from not mortal man, but from God and nature itself.

These modern institutions systematically strip away the rights and duties of the parent to educate and provide for the welfare of our children as we, the parents see fit. Our children are being taught to rebel against their parents and religion and by doing so they will be freed from the fundamental tyranny and oppression of the expectations of “normal” society, i.e. becoming responsible and accountable members of society. That they will experience nirvana in the light of their own wants and desires. The mantra is…”If it feels good, do it.” Don’t worry about the consequences, the government will nurture and protect you. This is a society of “I, we, want our rights” with no understanding nor regard to the responsibility of exercising those very rights we so desire.

We, the people are lost in the wood. And, yes, we do have miles to go before we sleep. As citizens and parents now more than ever, we cannot afford to be asleep any longer. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and our deeply held convictions and traditions, religious and otherwise, are not the only weapons we have and can exercise in order to save Our Great Nation. Sure, we have other weapons and it may come to that soon enough. If it does, then it will be a righteous action to defend the Supreme Law of the Land, The Constitution of these United States of America, Not the “Diversified States of America.” It will happen because men of good conscience will not allow Our Republic to slip quietly into obscurity. Good Men will take up arms to defend what is precious to them, Our families and the futures of Our children.

God Bless us all. There are those who disagree with what I say here. Realize that it is because of individuals such as Veterans and those who continue to put their lives on the line (military and law enforcement) that you may exercise the Right to disagree without reprisal or recrimination, you the few, the minority.

The Pending Anti-Gun State Supreme Court Case You Haven’t Heard About

Brady Campaign Seeks to Overturn Ruling Protecting Gun Manufacturer from  Liability.

-Spoiler Alert…Not going to happen.

We were all saddened and shocked by the loss of life in Sandy Hook CT. in 2012. A.L. (as I refuse to name assholes who commit horrible crimes), Murdered his Mother, the Legal Purchaser of an AR-15 type firearm. He then took her keys and accessed the LOCKED cabinet and removed firearms and then drove to the elementary school where he MURDERED 6 adults and 20 children. His mental health was barely a blip on the MSM radar.

Soon after, scumbag ambulance chasers (a.k.a. Attorneys) tripped all over themselves like greyhounds chasing a mechanical rabbit, in the hopes of the victims’ families would hire them to take legal action against anyone and everyone connected to this Criminal Tragedy.

A Connecticut judge, in October 2016, threw out a lawsuit brought against Remington Arms Company, the manufacturer, the wholesale distributor, and the retailer of the semi-automatic rifle used in the shooting. Judge Barbara Bellis ruled that the suit “falls squarely within the broad immunity” provided to gun manufacturers and dealers by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. The Connecticut Supreme Court heard the case on appeal this past November after Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara N. Belli explained in a 54-page memorandum (original 2016 case) that Remington is protected under the provisions of the Protection for Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which prohibits lawsuits being filed against firearms manufacturers and sellers for actions taken by third parties.

What is the Protection for Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) and why it’s important? First, though, let talk about what it isn’t. It is NOT a “Special Legal Protection” for manufacturers, distributors and lawful licensed sellers of guns. It offers no protection from Unlawful acts or practices related to firearms.

On the contrary, it only codifies and ensures that the firearms industry is treated like any other industry when it comes to lawful commerce.

“The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act is also commonly referred to as the “Gun Protection Act.” The law dismissed all current claims against gun manufacturers in both federal and state courts and pre-empted future claims. The law could not be clearer in stating its purpose: “To prohibit causes of action against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers of firearms or ammunition products, and their trade associations, for the harm caused solely by the criminal or unlawful misuse of firearm products or ammunition products by others when the product functioned as designed and intended.”

When some stupid “parent” gives their kid a car with a top speed of 200mph, and the kid drives recklessly or drunk and injures or kills someone, who do we blame? Why the driver, of course. How many protests or lawsuits have you seen against automobile manufactures for fast cars, high-capacity vehicles (Vans or buses) or demands for on-board breathalyzers that force you to “blow” before starting the vehicle? Sounds crazy, right? We go after the Person, the “actor” who engaged in the reckless conduct. We don’t blame the inanimate object, the tool used. Why are guns any different? Like a car, knife, hammer, baseball bat…etc., A firearm has specific use under a specific set of circumstances.

The PLCAA ensures that the firearms industry can operate with the SAME protections as the company that makes cars or can openers.

“Lawyers for the Sandy Hook families argued that Remington should be brought to court under the Act’s “Negligent Entrustment Exemption.” Remington “knows that civilians are unfit to operate AR-15s” but continues to sell them to the civilian market. In other words, Remington knows that at some point someone will commit a crime with one of their firearms, and they should, therefore, be subject to legal action. This exemption stipulates that when a manufacturer or seller has reason to suspect a purchaser might commit a crime with a firearm, the manufacturer or seller has a responsibility to prohibit that purchase from taking place. Not surprisingly, the judge was unconvinced. She gave a number of reasons for her decision, but one revolved around the idea that “civilians” is too broad a social class to support a claim for negligent entrustment. Remington can’t be held liable for anything anyone in the world might do with their firearms.”

Not to be deterred (of course), the above-mentioned ambulance chasing scumbags appealed, their case to the state Supreme Court. In addition to their original argument to Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara N. Belli, they are now including a 1977 case involving a “Slingshot” injury. Yes, you read that right.

“The case in Michigan was a 1977 lawsuit by the family of a 12-year-old against a company that manufactured slingshots. The boy was injured when he was struck in the eye by a pellet fired from a slingshot that ricocheted off a tree. The court allowed the case to go before a jury, ruling that the company entrusted the slingshot to a class of people, in this case, younger children, that made the ultimate accident foreseeable.”

Are you laughing? I did. The case clearly does not exhibit persuasive let alone a binding influence in this case. Does the PLCAA give blanket immunity to the manufactures, distributors or gun sellers? The answer is, No. If any of these entities violate Federal, State or Local laws, the PLCAA protections will not apply. This leaves open the possibility of not only criminal but, civil liability as well. However, for that to happen, one would have to prove that the manufacturer supplied a firearm to an individual, Having Knowledge that the individual was a person who, intended to commit a criminal act, or, that the Distributor (who supplies firearms to LICENSED dealers) is Unlawfully providing firearms to prohibited “persons” or dealers. For dealers, like me, for there to be a successful prosecution or civil lawsuit, I have to knowingly sell a firearm to a person, who intended to use the firearm in an unlawful manner.

Neither the seller nor a firearms manufacturer or a distributor is responsible for the criminal acts of a lunatic. Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was needed to stop “politically motivated” and “frivolous” lawsuits “intended to bankrupt the gun industry.”

Patriotism

After reading the article entitled “Jock Culture,”  By Robert Lipsyte, I was puzzled by his use of the word “patriotic” when referencing jocks. Today, more so than eight years ago, there are many examples of athletes who exemplify many character traits. However, “patriotic” would not be at the top of the list. But, within the context of the 1960s, I would agree with Bill Stowe’s assessment of the university culture at that time in history.

Today, we have the opposite of the late 1960s in colleges and universities across America. Today, the “pukes” are now running the show in academia with the jocks who spend much of their existence in a zone of neutrality not unlike the DMZ between North and South Korea or engaged in outright hostility against American culture in the form of disrespect towards our Nation Anthem and our flag. There, they remain precariously perched between the black and white of the so-called moral certainty of the Snowflakes in the Social Justice Warrior movement and the perpetually grey skies of the “real world” where certainty does not exist.

I’m quite certain that there are few “snowflakes” who can spell the word “patriotic” let alone define it with any great certainty. Although having many jobs during my lifetime, I believe my military career is what I miss most. Although I considered myself to be a patriot as a young man in high school, it was the U.S. Army that gave me what he needed to grow into what I considered a “true patriot.” The “Oath of Office” that I recited upon entry into the Army, was and still is very important to me. It is virtually the same oath as taken during my career in law enforcement. I have stated many times that one is not relieved of the duties and responsibilities of the Oath simply by leaving active duty service.

Patriotism, ” Is like a relationship between a man and a woman. Motives are quite often misunderstood and a matter of convenience. People who occasionally enjoy waving flags often don’t fully understand why they wave them and don’t deserve to have one”

Some equate Patriotism with Nationalism. And, in the superficial meaning of both, I can see why some may be confused. To me, patriotism is the love of one ’s country. I love my country, however, I don’t often trust my government or those who make the decisions that affect the very nature of American life. Nationalism, on the other hand, is the devil which can lead to extremism and war if not kept on a tight leash. Nationalism is often misused by despots and dictators. I am a “nationalist” and I want my President to be one as well. America needs a leader who puts America’s wellbeing before giving consideration to any other country.

Every American should be a Patriot and a nationalist. Today, the Patriot seems to be a scarce commodity. We are not. As the last national election proved, patriots are still a large and viable force. Considering what we have running the streets now, anarchists, communists, and socialists, the patriotic are now awake and mobilizing to defend Our Country, Our Constitution and the Rule of Law.

A few weeks ago, I saw one of these “protesters” carrying a sign that read, ““Be proud of your people when you don’t have to be ashamed of any of its social classes.” It should be noted that this is a direct quote from “Mein Kampf” written by Adolf Hitler.

If God forbid, we allow these disruptors to get out of hand, can Civil War be far behind? If things don’t change, and quickly, we will be in a state of civil war sooner than later.

PRAGER: The Greatest Hysteria In American History.

The Greatest Hysteria In American History

Vera Miles.

You and I are living through the greatest mass hysteria in American history. For many Americans, the McCarthy era held that dubious distinction, but what is happening now is incomparably worse.

For one thing, any hysteria that existed then was directed against the greatest evil in the world at the time: communism. Then-Sen. Joseph McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee notwithstanding, there really were Americans in important positions who supported communist regimes enslaving their populations and committing mass murder. McCarthy was on to something.

For another, the mainstream media did not support McCarthy. Most in the media were highly critical of McCarthy. Today, the mainstream media are not the voices of caution. They are the creators of the hysteria. There have been conspiracy theories throughout American history (e.g. Lee Harvey Oswald didn’t kill President John F. Kennedy alone; the moon landing never happened). But this is the first time the media have created and promoted a conspiracy. Not surprisingly, they have dropped any pretense of objective reporting in the process.

And while some Americans were unfairly labeled communists during the McCarthy era, countless Democratic politicians and leaders in news and entertainment have called members of the Trump administration and the tens of millions of Americans who support the president fascists, white supremacists, haters, xenophobes and even Nazis.

MSNBC contributor Jill Wine-Banks said of the Trump-Putin Helsinki press conference: “It’s just as serious to me as the Cuban Missile Crisis in terms of an attack, or the 9/11 attack. … (Trump’s) performance today will live in infamy as much as the Pearl Harbor attack or Kristallnacht.”

Former communist, Obama operative and CIA Director John Brennan tweeted: “Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was nothing short of treasonous.”

The constant invoking of the Holocaust, the Nazis and now Kristallnacht (the unofficial beginning of the Holocaust, a night in 1938 when German Jews were beaten to death, synagogues were burned and Jewish shops were destroyed) only minimize the evils of Nazism and the Holocaust. A young American who, having gone to a typical university, probably knows nothing about the Nazis and the Holocaust will now think Nazism and the Holocaust were 20th-century expressions of Trump and American conservatism.

All this hysteria is built on next to nothing. At its core, it is an attempt to undo the 2016 election. The mainstream media refuse to accept that Hillary Clinton lost. They said she would win — handily. They predicted a landslide. How could they have possibly gotten it so wrong? Their answer is they didn’t; Trump and Putin stole it.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would know Trump has been harder on Russia than former President Barack Obama was. Every American would be reminded that Obama reassured Putin’s right-hand man, then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, that he wouldn’t be too tough on Russia. Thinking his mic was off, he whispered into Medvedev’s ear: “This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility.”

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that Obama sent Army meals to Ukraine and Trump has sent anti-tank missiles and other arms to repel the Russians.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that Obama watched Syria burn and Russia come to dominate that country, while Trump has bombed Syrian military installations, including one where Russians were killed.

If truth mattered to the media, every American would be reminded that it is Trump who has weakened Russia’s ally Iran, while Obama immeasurably strengthened it.

Instead, the media scream “treason,” “impeachment” and the like 24/7; Hollywood stars curse the president; others curse his daughter or the first lady (one of the most regal in American history) and show President Trump in various death poses. Meanwhile, leftist mobs shout at administration officials and Republican members of Congress while they eat in restaurants, shop in stores and sleep in their homes.

If you vote Democrat this November, you are voting for hysteria, lies, socialism and even the cheapening of the Holocaust.

But more than anything, a vote for Democrats in November is a vote for hysteria — the greatest and darkest in American history.
