Preface

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 “Oprahization” of America.

In my country 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 a 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.

My six-year-old stepson, made a comment recently that sent chills down my spine. 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 in 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 no 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 made him a hero. 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. It 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, 3rd graders are being taught the correct way to use a “strap-on dildo,” 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 care about whether or not his goldfish is a “boy” or not. He sure as hell has no concept 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 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 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 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 conscious 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.

That Amendment About Gun Ownership Suddenly Seems Oddly Relevant

Hot off the press.

sharethis sharing button

“To all of you liberals who ran out to become first-time gun owners on the second or third day of riots following George Soros’ murder – congratulations. Your ten-day waiting period is almost up! Those tense, unarmed days between purchasing your new gun and the day in which you finally get to pick your property up at the gun store are a result of “gun control” policies you liberals have championed for years. While we’re on the subject, let’s look at some of the most popular gun control arguments and see how relevant they are when the SHTF, shall we?

First, there’s the argument that only cops should have guns, because the cops are there to protect you. If you’ve ever made that argument as a good liberal, that probably seems really silly after watching Minneapolis. Remember that part on the third night of riots when the police – the only ones with guns on the streets of Minneapolis – ran away from the looters? The only ones with the guns in that scenario, who were supposed to protect the people of Minneapolis… ran away.

The taxpayers in Minneapolis could have saved a bunch of money if they had really thought this one through. If the Mayor wasn’t going to allow the police to follow their own procedures to stamp out a riot immediately, then the only equipment the cops really need to purchase are a nice pair of track shoes. That’s way cheaper than all the guns, body armor, ammunition and other toys that the cops carry around!

Also, we need to point out that the argument that only cops should have guns seems a little weird right now. After all, the exact same people who have been telling us on the news for years that only cops should have guns are now telling us that all cops are racist and should be abolished.

Bit of a logic disconnect there, no? It’s similar to the argument that Trump is literally Hitler and therefore only the government should be allowed to own guns.”

REDDIT Run by Those Who Support Tyranny.

So, I received a two day “ban” from the sub-REDDIT group r/conservative for engaging in a “call to arms” violation…for less than 2 minutes when it was suddenly made a “permanent ban.”

Why was I banned from the r/conservative group you may ask? Why? For the “crime” of expressing Conservative views. I was also banned from r/news for the same thing, expressing conservative/Constitutional viewpoints. For playing the game of “arguing with idiots.”

The City of Chicago just threatened to use “Nuisance” ordinances to “Close or Destroy Churches.” The Department of Public Health sent a letter to Elim Pentecostal Church and other Romanian churches in the city threatening closure and “summary abatement.” According to the Illinois Supreme Court,

“Summary abatement would mean to put down or destroy without process. This means the inspector can, upon his own judgment, cause the alleged nuisance to stop on his own authority and effect a destruction of property at his discretion.” City of Kankakee v. New York Cent. R. Co., 387 Ill. 109, 116, 55 N.E.2d 87, 90 (1944).

So, the City of Chicago says, “continue to practice your religion and we’ll “burn” down your church.” Let that sink in. The “State” is Threatening to Use Force to put down your Freedom of Religion and the Exercise thereof in a Violation of the Civil Rights of the People. That’s right, your 1st Amendment Rights as codified with the Bill of Rights of Our Constitution, mean exactly squat to the City of Chicago.

So exactly how much more of this tyrannical bullshit is the American people to endure? The “ban” mentioned above came about because I suggested that a militia, which is made up of “the People,” should gather to protect these churches from the “State.” That We the People should use equal force against those politicians who are attempting to subvert Our Rights as codified within Our Constitution.

The moderator(s) attacked me when I pointed out to others their fair-weather “conservatism” and complete lack of understanding of Our Bill of Rights and that the 2nd Amendment, as written by Our Fore Fathers, was the remedy against tyranny by the State attempting to deny us our God-given or Natural Rights. Without the 2nd Amendment, there is no guarantee that the government will honor the other Rights contained therein. The Mod(s), after I posted to other sub-REDDITs the censorship employed against me, proceeded to publicly post that I was “lying,” etc. Then they Blocked me from responding to them at all.

This is how I responded to them before they blocked me…

“A TWO day ban turned into a Perm Ban?! What exactly am I being banned for?! Your accusation of a “call to violence” is Bullshit. Our Forefathers codified the 2nd Amendment so that We the People had, as a last resort, the ability to Protect/Defend Our God-given Rights as defined in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. So, if I express the SAME LEVEL of violence against the STATE’s Threatened Use of Violence in violation of Our 1st Amendment Rights, I’m the bad guy?! To stand in defense of OUR Constitutional Rights is “Wrong or Bad?” Apparently, the Mods on this sub-reddit are NOT Conservative nor do you believe in the Constitution and the Rights codified therein.”

Apparently, these so-called “conservatives” believe that the “State” can shit all over Our Rights and We the People just have to take it. They endorse through inaction the very actions that would have had lead flying in years past.

At what point do We the People finally take a stand against tyranny? At what point does do the American people have the Right to take action against these mini-tyrants pissing on us and our Rights? I’m still waiting for a reply that I know will never come because these faux-conservatives have no answers.

An Unjustified Killing

As I sit here in the early morning hours on Christmas eve, I stare at the lighted tree feeling a combination of anger and sadness. Just over a year ago, I went to the local animal shelter with the intention of adopting a dog.

Searching online led me to the shelter in search of a medium-size shepherd mix. My drive to the shelter was a mix of excitement and apprehension. I was excited to finally find a dog that seemed to be a good fit and apprehensive at the thought that she might well be taken before I got there.

After arriving, I hurriedly walked the kennel looking for her. She was a little skittish at first not knowing how to react to my offering a treat to her. She took a defensive stance as she took the treat from my hand. But, after a few minutes, she warmed up to me and the warning on the cage that she may bite lost all meaning to me.

She was found wandering a county road emaciated and very fearful. The month or so at the shelter had done wonders for her physically, however, she still exhibited what the shelter called “food aggressiveness.” In other words, she may well bite the hand that feeds her.

IT was apparent that the dog was previously mistreated and used by some unscrupulous backyard breeder as a money maker. This piece of shit human being beat her and used food as a weapon to force her compliance in their operation. Then once she was no longer useful in the production of puppies, these assholes “threw her to the curb.”

In the hour there with her, I fell in love with her and knew that I could show her the love she never received and in return have the faithful family protective companion I always wanted.

After telling the staff that I was interested in adopting her, I waited while the staff retrieved her file. In the meantime, I spent more time with her, alone. The more determined I was to bring this girl home with me. Finally, a staff member arrived and pulled me into another room to show me her file, while the family wandered around the shelter looking for kittens to play with.

The staff member opened the folder and warned me about the photos I was about to see. Photos of the hand of an employee who suffered injuries from this dog. The employee suffered multiple bites/puncture wounds while placing a food bowl into the kennel. I was that I “didn’t really want to adopt her,” and, that I would probably suffer the same fate if I took her home.

Confident in my abilities to rehabilitate her using lots of love and proper training, I would not be swayed in my decision. I would be taking her home that day.

It took about seven to ten days of allowing her to explore the house on her own before she became “comfortable” around the family. However, she was indeed physically aggressive when it came to food. After a few nips to my own hand, I learned to quickly place the food bowl in her kennel and move my hand out of the way. Any movement at all around her kennel while eating was met with an aggressive stance and vocalization indicating an imminent attack.

After another week or so, I had trained her to move to the back of the kennel while placing the food bowl inside. Although that lowed the risk to me (I NEVER allowed either one of my boys to participate in feeding her) when placing the bowl, once she started eating, all bets were off. As the next few weeks went along, as usual, she played with everyone and became very attached to me. When next to me, she was very loving but wary of anyone who came near me. She became very protective of me and was suspicious of everyone else. She would always sleep next to me but was always aware of what was going on around us.

Training her was going well with all the normal stuff you want in a dog. She was becoming more obedient and controlling her on walks was going well. She followed verbal commands from me at home and in public. However, she still was overly protective of me. It got to the point where I was becoming more concerned about this as days went by.

During our time together, she and I went almost everywhere together. She was my JEEP buddy. She was never aggressive with anyone. She seemed to like being around other people but, would never stray from my side. The trust and love continued to grow between us. In spite of this, her overly protective personality was a growing concern.

It was apparent that she was emotionally/psychologically “damaged” by her previous experiences. Perhaps, in her “mind” she felt that she finally found someone who would love and take care of her and that she would behave to protect that relationship.

The warning signs continued to accumulate. When out in public and even in the home, she would give the “stare” at anyone who came near me. Sometimes, even snarl at family members. I tried everything I could glean from every source of information to end this behavior. but, to no avail.

The end came one evening while I slept on the couch. As usual, she laid next to me with her head on my legs. Then with no warning, I felt and heard the dog jump and bark. Then the cries of our 9-year-old. He had come out of his room to show me some school papers. He thought it would be funny to shake those papers in my face in order to startle me. The dog didn’t see or understand the humor. She was startled, interpreted the situation as a threat and lashed out.

She bit our son in the forearm. Although he didn’t require a trip to the E.R., he did receive a couple of puncture wounds that required dressings. At first, I was angry at the dog and locked her in the kennel. I realized that had it been our younger, smaller son, it would have been his head at that level instead of his older brother’s arm.

Later, even without the received “input” from my girlfriend, I knew that the dog had to go. She was too protective of me during times I couldn’t control. The people I loved, the people she played with WHILE I was awake, were in danger at other times. The fact that she only trusted and protected me, made a danger to everyone else, even those who lived under the same roof. I had to find her a new home.

I searched for weeks for a new home. I kept coming up empty. The county shelter refused to take her back because she had been with me beyond the “30-day” period after adoption. I called every dog rescue in the State and was turned down with every call. I did everything I could to place her somewhere where she would be safe and well taken care of. I failed her.

I was given the ultimatum to remove her from the house. I was even “advised” by my girl’s family to remove her or they would never visit our home again because of the potential danger she posed. I was left with only one option.

I was agonizing over the only choice I was left with, she had to be put down. I couldn’t place anywhere and I couldn’t allow her to be placed with a family where she would, in fact, injure someone else which result in the same fate for her.

The morning came when I could no longer run from what I must do. It was a gray day, clouds hanging heavy in the sky. I grabbed her leash and she came running upon hearing the jingle of the chain. She looked excited for a moment but sensing something was wrong, sat and dropped her head. I attached the leash and we walked to my JEEP. This time, she hesitated before jumping into the passenger seat.

After pulling out of the driveway, she must have sensed something was very wrong. She kept nudging my arm with her nose. She hung her head over the armrest draping it over my arm. I started talking to her. I told her that I loved her and that she was not a fault for her behavior. I wished that I could find the people responsible for the damage that was done to this creature. I questioned my judgment in adopting this animal knowing that I ignored that voice in the back of my mind that this very moment was a possibility.

As I continued to drive, her head never left my arm and her eyes never left mine. With tears in my eyes, I continued driving with tears in my eyes when we finally reached our destination, a largely undeveloped area near my home.

I’ve known for weeks what her fate would be. Through no fault of her own, her life would be ended because of some piece of human trash damaged her beyond any hope of recovery.

We arrived at a very secluded area popular with people with offroad vehicles and those who enjoyed target shooting. As I led her from the JEEP, she stayed close to my legs and kept looking at me. I could tell that she was apprehensive as she kept bumping into my leg as we walked off-road into the brush.

After a short distance, we stopped and sat down. I hugged her and told her how much I loved her and that I was so sorry for my failings. Sorry that I failed at helping her overcome her fear and distrust of people. To me, she was a good dog. If I lived alone, she would be with me until one of us died. But, I didn’t live alone. I have a family that I love more than anything and I had an obligation to protect them. And that obligation was the ultimate obligation that a man can have. 

As I stood up, she rose up and sat beside me. She looked at me then looked away. The following is a graphic description of what followed. Be warned.

Standing behind her, I drew my pistol and pointed it at the back of her head. I was actively sobbing as I closed my eyes and pulled the trigger. I realized that I missed when she jumped and cried as the sound of the gunshot scared her. She jumped around pulling on the leash. I got her to calm down and stood in front of her. She was shaking, cowering, and looking into my eyes. even as I put the barrel of the gun point-blank to her forehead, she just there as if to accept her fate. 

On the drive home, I cried uncontrollably barely able to drive. For days I cried. I killed this animal who was nothing but loving, loyal, and, protective of me. She didn’t deserve this outcome. I do believe that those who mistreated her all those years in the name of profit and those like them, do.

Some of you will decry my act as cruel and inhumane as those who abused her. Why? Because “I” put her down instead of a veterinarian? I could not and would not allow myself the luxury of deflecting responsibility for her death. To sit and play the game of plausible deniability rationalizing that it was me administering the drugs to kill her. My action was my way of facing the outcome of the decision I made the day I adopted her and was arrogant enough to believe that I could or would make a difference in this dog’s life. It was all about me. My desires and want I wanted with no concern for future consequences. 

I endorse and encourage pet adoptions. I just hope that my story becomes a cautionary tale for others to think clearly before they adopt. I will live with this for the rest of my life. I am frequently saddened by her death. Forever in my heart, Forever haunting me.

Why the Government IS Dangerous

“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.”
