Uncle Wants To Erode Your Right To Bear Arms

Hand GunToday, I heard about a new bill being sponsored by Chicago Congressman Bobbie Rush. Called the  

Blair Holt’s Fire Arms Licensing and Record of Sale Act of  2009. Labeled HR 45.

It is the result of a shooting  high school student Blair Holt in Chicago. Actually, the young man heroically put his body between a shooter, and his intended victim. Holt stopped a bullet to save a life. Congressman Rush lives in a highly violent section of Chicago. He really believes that this law will save lives. What he doesn’t see is that the shooters who do the damage don’t really give a rats ass about any laws or the consequences of violating them. The law would only encumber  honest gun owners with stupid rules. The intent is to reduce the number of guns in the hands of the law abiding citizenry. It sounds like the government is setting us up for a take over, and is concerned that we may even fight back to keep our liberties intact.
After reading the following historical facts, read the part
About Switzerland twice.
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
From 1929 to 1953,
About 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
Were rounded
Up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million
Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million
Political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100 ,000
Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000
Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million
Educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century
Because of gun control: 56 million.
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by
New law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their
Own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500
Million dollars. The first year results are now in:
Here are some of the metrics:
1. Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.
2. Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.
3. Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
4. In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300
Percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the
Criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!
5. While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in
Armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the
Past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is
6. There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the
ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
Safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was
Expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns.

NOTE: I checked these facts on Snopes. Snopes does not refute any of the numbers. They do however, take argument with the interpretation of the statistics in an attempt to minimize the impact of the data. They could be right, and they could be wrong, you be the judge.

 The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians
Disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
Gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them
Of this history lesson.

With guns, we are ‘citizens.’
Without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew
Most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message
To all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
Defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
Important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is

NOTE: Every adult in Switzerland is required to have a riflr as part of their conscription to national military service.


Just think how powerful our government is getting!
They think these other countries just didn’t do it right.
Learn from history.

If You Want Frustration(edited)

With all the discussion and debate about the Health Care Reform bill, I decided to download the bill HR 3200 for some late night reading. My computer is relatively new. It has an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, and a 4 gigabyte RAM, with a hard drive sized for the future. I connect to the internet through a cable network.  This is clearly the fastest system I have ever owned.  I couldn’t believe what happened when I began the download of HR 3200. The system froze. Seven minutes later I was able to move the curs er around on the screen. I had a call from Peggy to  help with something, so I saved the file to my hard drive. It froze again, but I left the room, and it didn’t bother me.

Today, I opened the file to read the bill. It took seven minutes to open the file on my own machine. When it was completed, I couldn’t scroll down or move the pages much less read anything . If you believe your Senator or Congressman is reading this bill you are more naive than I am. I consider myself pretty good at using a PC, and I’m sure I can out do Senator Roland Burris, and even Senator Dick Durbin on PC usage. I also feel like I’m light years ahead of Debbie Halvorson. The only way these people are reading this bill is if it has been printed out for them.

If you think I am kidding, go to the government website and try downloading the bill yourself. If I am wrong, let me know how to do it right.


My son Mike read this post and downloaded HR 3200 in a few seconds. He Googled HR 3200 and selected the first government website on the list . He snet it to me via e-mail, and I was able to open it as easily as he downloaded it.

When technology works it is beautiful. When it doesn’t, it’s frustrating.

If You Want To Be A Radical, Hang With Radicals

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

A few months before the election, I wrote a piece called Fidel All Over Again? In this post, I explained my fears that BO was a radical and leaned toward communism. At the time, I wasn’t really sure, now I am certain that he is both a radical and a communist.  During the third debate of the campaign, John McCain attacked Obama on his associations with Bill Ayres and Acorn. Obama countered with an argument about how he will surround himself with competent people who will advise him on how to run the country.

“Let me tell you who I associate with. On economic policy, I associate with Warren Buffett and former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker. If I’m interested in figuring out my foreign policy, I associate myself with my running mate, Joe Biden or with Dick Lugar, the Republican ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, or General Jim Jones, the former supreme allied commander of NATO.

Those are the people, Democrats and Republicans, who have shaped my ideas and who will be surrounding me in the White House. And I think the fact that this has become such an important part of your campaign, Senator McCain, says more about your campaign than it says about me.”

Obama has now exposed his radicalism with the appointment of  unconstitutional advisors referred to as Czars. How many does he employ? Thirty two. At least two of them are self proclaimed communists or socialists. Ten of the czars report directly to Obama. A man who believes he is a leader should know that ten, plus a full cabinet is too large a number of direct reports. How can he possibly concentrate on anything with so many inputs? He won’t be able to. Either he will neglect some of the report to’s or he will become mired in information overload. Can he really make decisions on all the issues they will bring to the table  in so short a time?  Is there enough time in a week to meet and discuss policy with all of the czars, do the same with the cabinet,  give press conferences, take world sightseeing trips with the daughters, date nights with Michelle, and walk the dog too?

Diversity czar Van Jones, a self proclaimed communist, has spent several years advocating  revolution.  The Science czar, John Holdren holds unusual ideas about sterilization as a population control to limit climate polution.  He calls climate change skeptics  “dangerous members of a denier fringe.” I guess I can add that to my list of titles granted by name calling  liberals. The Diversity czar, Mark Lloyd, a proclaimed anti-capitalist, speaks favorably about the incredible Venezuelan revolution. Carol Browner, the Energy and Environmental czar, has been a member of known socialist groups. There are only twenty-eight others to check out. I will continue to do so.

I wish I could feel better by saying “I told you so,” but it doesn’t. All confirmation did is scare the hell out me. The direction POTUS is leading our country will never be “change I can believe in.”
