Kind of makes me want to take up smoking. (It’s strange, though, that they think smoking marijuana is somehow cool.)
We need to get in on this action and start making people feel ashamed once again for having children out of wedlock and for accepting government assistance when they are capable of working. Borrow the moves from their playbook and dish it back.
yeah, there’s things I should apologize for, like my foul language when I’m PO’d about things our government an dtheir leftist shills are up to.
But I will NEVER, NOT EVER, apologize for my Christian Faith nor my owning firearms of my choice.
I know a lot of women who are arming themselves. Some how, that’s never mentioned as a “woman’s choice”. In these perilous times, being armed is a wise and noble thing, not the shameful act that the Presstitutes are trying to make it into.
And be praying for this republic. And for the peace of Jerusalem.

Any guy who believes that the “Cash for Clunkers” was a huge success is not a professor (in the Oxford Dictionary definition…), rather he is a character in Alice in Wonderland! Which, come to think of it, aptly defines this fucking Administration! AND, whodafuk would name their boy child, C-ASS?

What we need to do is change the way in which people [criminals] think about guns, especially young people [punks] ….
There, fixed it.
He’s right, in a way: people (both predator and prey) need to change the way they think. When predators realize that their prey may have deadly weapons and are willing to defend themselves, “the way in which [they] think about guns” changes; and “it’s not cool … it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore.” Real-world crime statistics prove that.

Mech – you talk like you think the GOP has not already fallen? I judge a man by his actions and the GOP acts like Progs.
I was listening to a bunch of men talk about cars t’other day [serious talk about the relative merits of the M or L 65 'tang fastback] and I learned something about that Cash for Clunkers deal: it’s no longer possible to build a Rat Rod.
I think we’ve lost something uniquely American, there…
Even if ya could manage to find some parts stuck in a creek bank in the 40′s to hold back the erosion [see also: $1m regulatory fine] or parked out on the Rez somewhere [the vast majority having been been crushed by C4C] the regulatory changes in C4C disallow any registration without sailing stormy and impenetrable oceans of regulatory BS.
The only “old” cars out there now are Barrett-Jackson material. How many young’uns do you see working on cars in Dad’s garage?
Aside from destroying the used car market for those seeking cheap transport.
All to feed the Global Worms.

Holder’s “smoking gun”
Side note: at the range, yesterday, the club president mooched a nice cigar from me, and we puffed away between shootin’ episodes (60 rnds AR-10, 60 rnds M1A, 60 rnds M4, and 50 rnds 1911 on my part). We are soooo goin’ to anti-social, un-PC ProgHell. You know … enjoyed ourselves.
Also helped to corrupt the PCmorals of an 8yo young lady whose Daddy brought her out to shoot for the first time. They only had one box of .22LR ammo, ’cause there wasn’t any left at the gun shop. Well, there wasn’t until the guy behind the counter learned the ammo was for the little girl, and he “managed” to find some behind the counter. I also gave ‘er a few-dozen I keep in my range box for emergencies.
Also had a nice long chat with a humanitarian ex-Navy corpsman (yeah, SEAL & USMC ties) who came out to exercise his 1911 mercy machines. Well, they keep him alive so he can save lives, right?

I went to my range/gun store (maybe the biggest on the east coast)yesterday to get a little widget, which they had, but there hadn’t a single semi auto rifle and only about half their normal compliment of semi pistols. They normally have about 60 wall feet of rifles and probably more than 100 feet of counters with pistols. The walls were bare and there were lots of gaps in the counter shelves.
I wrote to my US senators, congressman, state delegates, governor, lt. governor and attorney general yesterday.
I figger that ought to get me on some new lists and a courtesy call one night next month. Thinking about moving to [secret location] this week.

^ Kind of makes me want to take up smoking. (It’s strange, though, that they think smoking marijuana is somehow cool.)
This ‘marijuana’ that you speak of: Are you saying that it’s smokable? Do many Earthlings partake of this? We need to investigate this. We’ll be back in a few centuries, if we remember.
Smokers “cower” outside to smoke not because they are ashamed or embarrassed to smoke indoors, but because the GOVERNMENT made it illegal for them to smoke in every G-D Damn building. Does Holder not realize we know this?
^ It seems as though senseless ignorance may remove itself from the gene pool.
I was wondering, do homeowner’s insurance policies and life insurance policies take gun ownership into consideration? I’d think the bean counters might include that in their actuarial calculations somehow.

^ Unfortunately, there’s no coalition of citizens against senseless ignorance
That would be kind of an oxymoron, wouldn’t it? I mean, is there any such thing as “senseful” ignorance. Overall, I would consider that statement to be redundant. I also think that mankind could get along just fine with only one butt cheek. Many species do it. Some don’t even have one.

We counter this by making it obvious that gun ownership is normal, common, and fun.
My seven-year old is “star of the week” in school. Totally unearned (public school), everybody gets to take turns being “special” so nobody is left out. She had to make a poster, with lots of pictures of herself. After she selected the pictures, my wife came and whispered to me to ask if it was alright that several of them showed her (the seven-year old) shooting. I asked if she was being safe in the pictures, my wife said that she was, so I asked “well, what’s the problem”. I guess we’ll see what the teacher thinks… (The rest of the pictures are probably worse from a safety standpoint, flips on the trampoline, climbing trees 20-30 feet up off the ground, holding sticks while I chainsaw (eyes and ears protected, as in shooting), riding in the loader bucket, etc)
As you walk into my church, there are pictures of the various church missions. One of which is a college-outreach ministry/youth group. Of course the most fun pictures are when we take the group out shooting each fall. Lots of grins, and lots of guns being used in safe and fun ways. We do lots of other stuff with these kids, but probably half of the pictures in the display case are our “range day”. The pastor (jokingly, I believe) asked if those pictures might scare people away from our church. I replied that if somebody came in intent on mayhem they might move along if they realize we’re able to protect ourselves. He seemed OK with that.

“Children left unattended will be eaten or sold into slavery. – The Mgt.”
I’ve read all your comments & considered all the other ‘news’
about massive buying of guns & ammo, plus the intensive & ‘rushed’
anti-gun legislation activities of the federal gubbmint! I’m getting
a strong sense that gun-control & confiscation is what the leftists
desperately need to bring about their fascist/socialist takeover of
our country! I suspect we may be further down the road to a ‘crisis’
than is realized! To me, the biggest problem for us, is the significant
percentage of the brainwashed, emotionally driven, unrealistic
population that fully supports the entire gun-control initiative.
