They'll Never Learn

On Dec 22nd, New York's Journal News published online an article titled "Where are the gun permits in your neighborhood?". The leftist rag decided that they would expose the names and addresses of registered permit holding gun owners. The Journal thought they were being slick, putting sunlight on those evil gun owners. But it was really a boost for criminals, in more ways than one. What will it take for the Journal News to learn? They won't, even after someone dies.

While it's common for Liberals to take advantage of tragedies like the shooting in Sandyhook CT. Deliberately putting people in danger is a new low. Foxnews interviewed a few ex-cons that said if they had a map like that it would have made their job much easier. To me it's pretty clear, one with crime on his mind might go to the unarmed homes at night, feeling safe that the owners won't have the ability to fight back. Then if one wanted to replenish their supply of stolen guns just needs to rob the homes with guns in the daytime when no one is home.

Along with every Tom, Dick and Sally whose names were published was Jeanine Pirro, Foxnews host and former judge on the Westchester County Court, now I am sure it is easily understood why a former judge needs both a weapon for protection and privacy of her home address. Watch this clip from the Judge's show with her reaction:

Here's where the real scary part starts, four weeks to the day that the Journal News article was published a home in White Plains was broken into, had the story;
"A White Plains residence pinpointed on a controversial handgun permit database was burglarized Saturday, and the burglars' target was the homeowner's gun safe. 
At least two burglars broke into a home on Davis Avenue at 9:30 p.m. Saturday but were unsuccessful in an attempt to open the safe, which contained legally owned weapons, according to a law enforcement source. One suspect was taken into custody, the source said".
Luckily the owner, who was in his 70's was not home at the time of the robbery. The brazen thieves brought a ladder and broke through a 2nd story window.

So the question is when will someone die because of the Journal News' irresponsibility and will they even care? I will answer that for you, yes someone will die and NO they don't care. You see the left only pretends to care about things, they claim this all for the safety of our children and look the other way while planned parenthood has a record year and aborts over a million babies. They claim to care about jobs and the poor while they continue to squash small businesses and add more to the list of foodstamp recipients that ever before. They tell you that you are not capable of defending your home and family with a gun, while they walk around with concealed carry permits and armed guards 24/7. Don't let the government run your life into the ground. Stand up for the Bill of Rights, don't let Obama trample the Constitution any longer. Exercise those rights, SPEAK UP, call your congressman and senators, vote and write a blog, we can't rely on the AssKissMedia to watch out for us. If you really want to stick your thumb in their eye, BUY A GUN! Take a safety course, join the NRA and add your name to the ranks of those will not be sheep led to the slaughter. Celebrate with us on Gun Appreciation Day!

More Guns = More Freedom

With renewed threats of sweeping gun control laws or even worse an outright ban (& confiscation) from the Obama Administration via executive order, again we need to take a look at guns in America and why we need them. Guns have played an important part in history, the way we know that guns are tools and not some kin of incarnate evil, because  more often than not they are used to help protect people and preserve our way of life. Even though the media would tell you different, it is simple to look back and see the benefit of having this particular tool. To put it more simply; Guns don't kill people, people kill people. 

The primary reason to own a firearm is the same reason you vote, exercising your rights. The Founding Fathers put together a simple yet highly effective document that lays out our way of life. The Constitution is 8 pages and the Amendments we have made since then might take up 2 more. We cherish the things that we have been given, by God (life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness) and man (everything else). So how could it not be positive to exercise our 2nd right and be prepared for any action. "Amendment II - A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." Now the well regulated militia spoken of here is essentially the military, there to protect the Union, from outside invaders. Then it goes on to say what the right of the people is. Now if you need to consider the two parts connected than I am part of a well regulated group the NRA. I don't think it's a requirement, but if it gives you some peace of mind, join up, it's inexpensive and provides both access to training and safety courses and it also provides some insurance in case the unthinkable happens.

Secondly, it's a safety issue.  Always remember, you don't call the police because they have pens, you call them because they have guns. Face it, the time where you could go to sleep at night with your front door open to catch a breeze is gone. The safety of you and your family should be one of your primary concerns, waiting 8 to 15 or more minutes for the police to show up with their guns is simply not acceptable. I'm not trying to scare you, but the facts are facts. In the year 2010 according to the FBI there was 417,403 robberies in the US, and 14.3% of them were home invasion. So at one robbery a minute, out of 100 minutes 14 of them were home invasion. Take a safety/training class, do your homework, figure out what is right for you and be ready. If you have children you have an even greater responsibility, not only to protect your kids from the world, but to teach them proper gun safety, allowing them to grow up and intelligently protect their family. Banning guns seems like a great plan, except crooks don't care about bans or laws. It's pretty much settled that we lost the war on drugs, because no matter how many laws you pass, the drugs will always be there. So what makes you think it will be any different with guns. Where I think legalizing drugs is just stupid, it seems to be the direction we are going. So we are to believe more access to drugs will mean less crime. You can't have it both ways.

Lastly, recreation. Guns are a great hobby. There's the physics, the skill required, and the opportunity to interact with supersonic objects (that loud bang is a sonic boom). Some people enjoy target shooting or trap shooting, others prefer hunting, and still others prefer collecting guns. Guns tend to retain their value and sometimes even gain value over time. Many people enjoy it all. Regardless of what you've been told by the media, there is a good chance a gun related hobby is right up your alley. I find it to be both exhilarating and relaxing.
