…is at hand.

President Obama is trying to rule by fiat.
He does not have the authority to change a law because he doesn’t like it, or in this case, it isn’t working.
Our Constitutional Republic is in great danger and the Congress needs to get off its collective ass and stop kissing the tyrant’s ring.

Watch this video from Ben Sasse.

…was a blast!

My brother came home from Afghanistan on the 11th of October.
We hit the desert two weeks after he gets back for a Shootfest!

This is the second one that I’ve done and it was even better than the first just by the volume of guns that we had out there.

We had a couple friends come out too, which is why there are so many guns.
One guy was responsible for just under half you see on the table. There are more guns, pistols were generally on hips.

What a treat this was!

Here’s the spread:

The weapons ranged from over 100 years old to modern day.
Here’s a couple more pics:

And yes, it is a .308 Lapua. This this is a tack driver.

Sweet doesn’t even come close. Hell of a rifle.

Another angle on the table.

It was definitely a fun day and a great way to welcome my brother home.

Welcome home Bro!

 

…is just that. A myth. No such thing. They violate our laws the second they cross the border, and it continues unabated and aided by the MSM and amnesty advocates alike.

This is a long essay, but well worth your time.

The Myth of the “Otherwise Law-Abiding” Illegal Alien

For years advocates of amnesty and high levels of immigration have described the illegal alien population as one made up of “otherwise law-abiding” people who have committed no violation other than the simple act of crossing a border illegally or overstaying a visa.1 Journalists routinely invoke this language when writing about amnesty, conspicuously avoiding any discussion of the various crimes the average working illegal alien commits. Many politicians have also embraced the myth of the otherwise law-abiding illegal alien in an effort to promote amnesty, arguing that illegal aliens are no threat to the United States.2

But the average illegal alien violates numerous statutes, often creating real victims.

This is one hell of a quote:

Our government is too big. It is too inefficient. It is too intrusive. It needs to do less, and it needs to do a considerably better job of executing those functions it does carry out. The struggle to take us from where we are today to a future in which a leaner, flatter government allows its citizens to truly live free, is the defining battle of our time. Nothing less than the definition of what it means to be “an American” is at stake.

Freedom in Internet Blog Reporting Excellence

It’s been 34 plus years since my first attempt to use a computer. A “trash 80″ that had no internal memory to speak of. It used a 7 1/4” “floppy” disk with limited abilities. In the early ’90’s I first found the internet, but didn’t use it to any extent until later in the decade and early in the new millennium. Today my life and most everyone else in the first world would be lost without our computers, in whatever form they may take, and the internet.

Something that most of us have come to expect, rely upon, enjoy, love and hate is the internet blogger.

What the heck is a blogger? Well, the term blogger comes from Weblog. A weblog is the combination of web and log. The internet being referred to as the web, web of internet connections, and the log is the continuing input of information into a website location. A blogger is a person who uses a website location to discuss whatever is his interest.

A bloggers interests may be personal or pertaining to intersexual relations or politics. Essentially, whatever one can think of is covered or discussed or referenced on the internet at some bloggers blog site.

…that’s what they should call themselves. Their agenda is as plain as the nose on their faces.

These anti-gun douche bags are all about control. If the government is the one controlling the guns then guess who else they control after that?

If you are a stooge of government controlling all aspects of your life, then maybe you should move to North Korea. I’m sure they’d love your stupid ass.

No guns, no freedom. Guaranteed.

Let’s Kick King Bloomberg While He’s Down, Colorado Victory: Proof & Opportunity

Manassas, VA –Ammoland.com-

Colorado Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron are both out of a job as of September 10 2013 when vote-counts showed that recall elections against the pair were successful.

Morse lost in a close race, while Giron was effectively trounced.

The recall effort was initiated by angry GunVoters after the legislature passed, and the Governor signed, a gun control bill which requires almost all private firearm transfers to go through a licensed dealer for background checks, requires gun buyers to pay a fee to the dealer for processing the paperwork, and limits new magazines to no more than 15-rounds.

We were told by Mike Bloomberg and his crew at Mayors Against Illegal Guns that this election was going to prove once and for all that the “gun lobby’s” power is a myth, that politicians who fear the wrath of GunVoters have been conned, and that if politicians will step out in support of gun control, the voters will reward them. Bloomberg wrote a personal check for $350,000 to back up that statement and helped recruit other deep-pockets donors like California gazillionaire, Eli Broad, who kicked in another $200,000, and major DC fundraising fronts that chipped in several hundred thousand more. All told, these individuals and groups contributed the lion’s share of some $3,000,000 the campaigns spent trying to save Morse and Giron – at least 5 times more than the approximately half-million dollars spent by those trying to fire the pair.

Now that the election is over, we hear from the “Media” that the results are relatively meaningless – “just symbolic” – that the only thing proven is that, this time, Republicans succeeded in suppressing the vote, even though more Democrats cast ballots than Republicans did, that Morse and Giron ran poor campaigns, and that the real reason the recalls succeeded was that Colorado voters just don’t like Mike Bloomberg and his money.

I salute you America.

The Bill of Rights…

Declaration of Independence

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
