The Messiah is a Liah!

The Mesiah

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, reacting to yesterday’s remarks by Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder that the president will seek to reinstate the ban on semi-automatic firearms, Gottlieb said  “We warned America that Obama’s ‘support’ for the Second Amendment was empty rhetoric,” he stated, “and now Holder’s disclosure has confirmed it. Obama was lying, and now gun rights may be dying.”

 U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s response to a reporter’s question on weapons’ regulations, Holder said, “Well, as President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to re-institute the ban on the sale of assault weapons. I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum.”

Holder refused to speculate when regulations would move forward, likely no law would be passed, instead a decree will be handed down from mount Olympus.   “There are obviously a number of things that are — that have been taking up a substantial amount of [Obama’s] time, and so, I’m not sure exactly what the sequencing will be,”  Holder said.

The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF)  in response to Attorney General Eric Holder’s comments on Feb. 25, 2009, about reinstating the assault weapons ban, NSSF issued a press release reminding Congress and all Americans that such a ban would result in a loss of jobs, have no effect on reducing crime and would deprive millions of law-abiding gun owners of their Constitutional right to own the firearm of their choice.

History is a good teacher.  We know that the Clinton Gun Ban had ZERO effect on crime in the United States, or Mexico for that matter.  There is no reason to reinstate this restrictive and useless ban except to limit gun ownership.   Assault weapons as defined in the Clinton Ban were involved in less than 1% of homicides before the assault weapons ban took effect in 1994. The same is true as of 1998. (1)    As of 1998, about 13% of homicides involve knives, 5% involve bludgeons, and 6% are committed with hands and feet. (1)    The Clinton administration prosecuted 4 people in 1997 and 4 people in 1998 for violating the assault weapons ban. (2)

Heller Decision is Continues Making a Difference.

The Village Council of  Winnetka, Illinois voted unanimously to repeal the Council’s 20-year-old handgun ban.  This is the third Chicago area township to drop an unconstitutional complete ban on handguns following the U.S. Supreme Court decision last summer in the District of Columbia vs. Heller case.  The Court held that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right to be exercised by any American who wishes to.

Chicago itself is still defying the decisson and is in a court battle with the NRA.  It seem Mayor Richard Daley would rather waste taxpayer money fighting a loosing battle than allow American citizens to exercise God given rights.  My favorite quote on this subject comes from Steve Chapman who wrote for “America’s Frist Freedom” an NRA publication Feb. 2009 issue,  “The city, however, notes that the nation’s capital is a federal enclave, and that the court did not say states must respect the Second Ammendment.  That’s true.  The court’s ruling also did not say that China is in Asia, which doesn’t make it part of South America.”

What part of “Shall not be infringed” do they not understand?

    1911 AUTO POCKETSMITH IIG

    1911 AUTO POCKETSMITH IIG

    What a great too for your shooting box.  Ever been and the range and needed to make a quick repair or adjustment, only to find you don’t have any tools with you.  This is the kind of tool that I would put in my shooting box and just leave there so it will always be handy when I need it at the range.

    Caspian Arms all-in-one, stainless steel pocket tool that has all the tools needed to service your 1911 at the range . Stainless steel, fold-open design has a bushing wrench, pliers, and wire cutter. Additional tools in the handles are 3/32″ and 5/32″ Allen wrenches, three screwdriver bits with assist tabs for easy grasp when swinging out of handle, mainspring housing pin punch, file, and an easy-open knife with half-serrated, half-straight blade. Scratch-resistant, matte black hardcoat finish for exceptional durability,with grip panels of rugged G10 fiberglass composite with checkered surface pattern for a firm grasp. Comes with a custom fit nylon belt pouch too.

    I’m not big on all-in-one tools but this one really caught my attention, every 1911 owner should have one in his field kit.

    Specifications; 4-1⁄8″ (10.5cm) OAL folded; 6½” (16.5cm) OAL extended.

    Communitarianism, New Word Meaning, John Q. Public is Screwed! or will be soon…

    In January 2008 Former President Bill Clinton addressed a meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, here is a quote from his speech.

    “Communitarianism is a movement that considers individualism an impediment to society uniformly adopting values the movement considers appropriate, including authoritarian gun control.”

    So, do you think your individual freedoms are safe?

    Clearly these pompous elitists think they are smarter and better than everyone else.  In reality they are just a rehash of old fashioned socialism.  My Grandfather would have called them “educated damn fools!”  Conservatives are still the majority in this country, we need to become the vocal majority and put a stop to such foolishness.  We need to teach, speak out, share, influence, and express our views at every opportunity.

    If you do not consider this to be an important issue I suggest some reading:

    • 1984 by George Orwell
    • Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
    • Animal Farm by George Orwell
    • The Fountain Head by Ayn Rand
    • Paradise Lost by John Milton

    Freedom and Individuality were the building blocks of this country and they are what draw peoples from all over the world to our shores.  If we give them up we loose our identity and frankly our value to humanity.
