Make Everybody Join the NRA!

Picking up on Nancy Sinatra’s idiocy about the “murderous NRA members,” and then joining the Left in making rules to force everybody to do this and that, I apply some statistical reality to arrive at this conclusion: we could nearly eradicate murder in this country if the government forced everybody to join the NRA.

Because, Nancy, NRA members just don’t commit murder. I suppose that someone can find some NRA member somewhere was convicted of a murder at some point in history, but it’s pretty much unheard of. Otherwise, I am sure we would all have heard this from the commie propagandists. Therefore, in a Democrat Big Brother Idiocracy sort of way, I conclude that making everyone join the NRA would stop everyone from killing anyone.

(You might not be able to make them join, but you could impose an extra income tax on them for not joining. The legal precedent is there with Obamacare, right?)

Democrat Jackboots Made for Walking Over Ordinary Americans

Whoever knew that Nancy Sinatra had evil thoughts — or thoughts at all, for that matter? So, she tweets revealing herself to be among the Quisling collaborators who would dispatch jackbooted thugs to kick down doors, confiscate firearms, and arrest fellow-citizens. She’s the snitch down the street. She’s the commie block captain reporting to the Party.

Nancy, you were cute when you performed “Boots” (long ago) but now it looks like your little jackboots were made for walking all over the rest of us. A “firing squad” really? You would have an American Gestapo-like squad show up at NRA members’ doors, kick the doors in, drag people out, and execute them — ironically before a firing squad! Nancy, what do you think members of a firing squad use? Guns, idiot, they use guns.

A necessary precursor for tyranny is a disarmed populace. Notice that when tyrants disarm citizens, they do not disarm themselves or the government they create to rule over the rest of us. You don’t “ban guns”; you just create a special-people monopoly on guns. How about some gun equality! If they have them, then so must we!

Nancy, you nicely illustrated why a free people have to keep and bear arms. Now, take a walk and see if the fresh air will boot your violent thoughts from whatever brain you have left. The Idiocracy is not just idiotic; the Idiocracy is violent.

Deterring Murderers

I’m going to write this before we know anything about why Stephen Paddock selected a position high up in a Las Vegas hotel, and targeted outdoor country music fans below. It should suffice that he is a murderer. The dead will never debate his reasons. They were murdered. However, already, I hear the earnest voices of NPR trying to turn “the narrative” toward a ban on citizens owning rifles.

So, this post is addressed to liberal people who purport to be horrified by a mass shooter’s murderous rampage. If you really care about people, and if you really want to deter murderers, then you should be for changing the culture in which some of us find it acceptable or even laudable to drive a car into a crowd, bash someone over the head from behind, start slashing, or load up and start shooting. If you liberals eager to clamor for gun control actually care about people, do you not want to teach this culture that human life is at least valuable — even if you cannot admit that human life is sacred? Do you liberals for gun control not want to permeate the culture with respect for human beings to the point that we broadly teach people not to murder? Can you liberals for gun control take up the chant, “Thou shalt not commit murder?”

Because, if you cannot, then your primary motive on these occasions is not to make people safer: your primary liberal gun controlling motive is to capture the publicity narrative for the purpose of transferring power to people who govern — and history proves that such does not end well.

I am going to write it again: In this post-Christian, post-modern, nihilistic culture we have let infest the United States, we officially indoctrinate others to believe that:

–human beings infest the planet, destroying the climate, the plants, the other animals, and the earth, all to which we ascribe some sort of semi-sacred life force making the dirt just as sacred as that man, woman, or child over there;

–indeed, before human beings emerge into the room to be seen and heard, we teach that it is permissible to slaughter them if the mother deems them too inconvenient at the moment; we teach that the tiniest human beings are just “stuff,” mere undesirable tissue, like a fingernail clipping;

–our official “science” is that human life is nothing more than a fleeting stage of accidental collisions between chemicals over time, making us different from the worms only by chance; if you think this is the official anti-human propaganda, please visit the official Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.; you — reader — are basically, shit, just noisier than the coral — according to the “official” science — why not just shoot a few of us?;

–we handle our murderers in such a way as to treat their homicides with a lack of seriousness; the consequence of murder is rarely execution, and never a public execution such that the youngster going bad out there in the crowd gets the dramatic and horrifying foretelling of the life of crime he has begun; the utter wrongness of murder gets quickly tucked away — unless you are a policeman accused of a bad shoot;

–some Democrat voices spew constant hatred; those softer Marxists not overtly spewing hatred sympathize with the haters and high-five the  anarchist attackers;

–we promote and financially enable massive consumption of mind-bending prescription drugs, and illegal narcotics;

–finally, we excise from our culture any notion that there is a God who is holy, who has spoken to us, who has instructed us that “Thou shalt not commit murder.” This propaganda has been so effective that, in addition to agnostic or atheist liberals who make government their god, there are also libertarian gun-owning Second Amendment supporters who will not vote for Judge Roy Moore because he committed the horrific culture-offense of taking the Word of God seriously and saying that the Ten Commandments just are;

Well, today, in Las Vegas, we see what happens when we make ourselves gods: Some choose to be evil demented little gods — and, who is to judge them? It’s Lord of the Flies, The Walking Dead, and World War Z, and we who want peace and safety ought to know better. We’ve been told, we’ve been warned, and the truth is right there for us to see.

 

“Counseling” Needed by Taco Bell Employees

These three Taco Bell employees are heroic! Two armed robbers hit the place, order employees to lie on the floor — putting them in possible execution mode. But, three other — armed of course –employees fire them up, killing one.

Anyone, anytime, anyplace. Yo quiero Taco Bell!

Footnote: The company offered “counseling” to all employees. Counseling. I suppose it’s the politically correct thing to do in the Democrat-orchestrated demise of the culture, but it’s laughable. I doubt our armed employees will be going to “counseling” unless it’s here at Rangemaster.

Footnote 2: Pennsylvania is a right to carry state. The NRA convention was held in Pittsburgh a few years ago.

Dazed Thinking in Baltimore Can’t Stop Crime

Word study on Baltimore Sun article illustrates why dazed Democrats cannot stop their urban murder problem. (Pardon the popups on their site.) Let’s start with the article’s eye-catching, ho-hum, no-action caption: “Standing up for a cause: Baltimore hopes for a 72-hour ceasefire.”

Yep, merely “standing up” for a generic, unnamed, unidentified “cause” will halt those demented murderers in their tracks.

In their fuzzy thinking, they will not identify who from among them, is killing everybody else. A shot interviewee pleads, “Somebody pulled up and shot me on my way to work.” Somebody. Only somebody. He probably has some idea or description, but will not give it. Perhaps he described the shooter, but the reporter scrubbed the details to be more politically correct. So, he pleads, “People” need to put the guns down. Really? My guns don’t drive to Baltimore, pull up, and shoot anyone. You have criminals there, people of inner-city Baltimore. Point them out. Demand that your mayor and police hunt them down and eliminate them. Regardless of their color. Get rid of that mayor and prosecutor, if you have not already.

The same guy begs these same generic “people” to “stand up for a cause.” Okay. Cleaner streets? World peace? Global whatever? What’s your cause, other than bleating like sheep? How about telling your politicians you want the murdering thug gangs hunted down and hung from street corners? Make that your cause, and chase the murderers to New York City. How about “Take back our streets!” or “Shoot the murderers!”?

He says all of Baltimore’s murders are “crazy.” No, the murderers are “evil” but that is a word this anti-Christian culture has virtually eliminated. Evil. There are evil people. Get them off the streets, and your murder problem evaporates.

Unable to figure this out, the writer uses a guy on the way home from the ER with a bullet still in his neck as a “stark reminder of how hard it can be to stem a record pace of shootings and killings in Baltimore.” Hard? Not really: you get the degree of crime you tolerate. Period. Democrats’ — and squishy Republican collaborators’ — social policies have encouraged and enabled murderers over decades. Democrats enable, and then tolerate murderers.

That brings me to the subject matter of the article: a “ceasefire.” They declared a “ceasefire.” That’ll work.

They staged a “free-hug event” at a park. LOL. I wonder how many gang members showed up. They planned more than 30 other “events” designed to “pressure” [Who?] to “halt the violence.” How about showing up with baseball bats at a local drug den, kicking the doors down, and driving the thugs away?

They held up printed signs begging, “Nobody kill anybody for 72 hours.” Pathetic.

So, what was this really about, since it was not about stopping Baltimore murderers? That sign I mentioned — and another paragraph in the article — reveal what the entire charade was really about: it was a Democrat community activist gun control farce, dressed up like a “grass roots” response to crime.  The sign asking for a “cease fire” uses the profile of a semi-automatic pistol with an “X” through it in the word “fire.” Press release to the Sun, get a reporter to show up and interview a few select people, and you stage a little political gun control propaganda. The newspaper’s reporters obediently showed up with microphones. I bet no more than 25 people did the whole thing, but the the ACORN-like spawn groups can count on the leftist press and government grant money for printing the signs and paying rabble-rousers’ salaries.

Good black people of Baltimore and other Democrat controlled urban hell-holes. Wake up! You are being used and duped by the minions of Karl Marx who have taken over the Democrat Party. They hate America, and they care nothing about you. If they did, they would hunt down your murderers and hang them in public on your street corners as a warning to MS-13, the Bloods, Crips, and any young man being lured into a life of crime. That’s what NRA members like me want to do. Don’t you agree? No? Want your sons back? Want your streets back? Want shops to return to your blighted neighborhood? Want your schoolyards safe? Then, execute your murderers; send your drug dealers away to prison for a long, long time; tolerate no carjacker or convenience store bandit. Tell the police when your son tells you about a local gang pressuring him to join.

Listen to what these white and black liberal commies are telling you to do. They are telling you to disarm. Obey. Depend solely on the government. Look where that’s gotten you. Instead of slavishly “putting down your guns,” you should master your own city by picking up a gun, getting some training, and shooting back — accurately and effectively. Throw out the bums in city hall and find someone who will support your police.

Or don’t: just bleat like sheep, hold free-hug events, and descend further into the hell created by your community activists. But, don’t expect the rest of us out here in America to go along with the tyranny of gun control.

About Judge Who Blocked California’s Magazine Ban

Judge Robert Benitez just overturned California’s statute not only banning the future banning the sale of magazines holding over 10 rounds, but also mandating that they be confiscated. I took a closer look at the judge who wrote that California’s statute is unconstitutional.

Judge Robert Benitez was appointed a federal judge by President George W. Bush. Elections have consequences. Thank you, President Bush and to all voters who chose him over his Democrat opponents. Not enough voters, and Judge Benitez would not have been there to stop the Communists of California’s Democrat Party.

Judge Benitez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1950. This means that his parents fled Castro’s communist takeover of the island. Perhaps Judge Benitez heard his parents recount the takeover of Cuba by the Communists. Perhaps because of them, he sees himself as guarding against the howling mob demanding dictatorial rule — in California.

While you watch the colorful parade today….

Happy 4th! All over America, Americans will parade to music, grill out with family, and culminate with stunning fireworks displays.

Fighting the American Revolution looked nothing like that.

Today, this 4th of July, Independence Day 2017, I am humbled, thinking about the relatively few men who never gave up, kept putting one foot in front of the other, and endured hardship that we modern Americans cannot even imagine.

When you see colorful uniforms today, you might bear in mind that at one point during the southern campaign, many of our troops literally marched naked, covering themselves with nothing more than their cartridge boxes. In winter. They had no resupply. A surprisingly short time of living rough in the woods and patrolling long distances by night, crossing streams, throwing your body through brier patches, and tripping over logs and rocks will literally tear your clothes to rags. What doesn’t get torn, the rain rots. There was no weekly resupply for the Continental Army.

The Continental Army’s feats are almost unbelievable.

We owe them such a great debt of gratitude.

 

Why I Chose a Gun

Dutch General Peter van Uhm explains the gun’s necessity to a free, peaceful state. I don’t recommend too many videos to you, but this is one: 17 minutes long, but you can hit “Settings” and speed him up to 1.25. However, General van Uhm’s insights are so keen, you may want to leave him at normal speed, take notes, and watch again. His speech to a varied audience — some of whom were no doubt very uncomfortable in the presence of the AR-15 platform weapon he displayed to them.

Hint: He comes from Nijmegen, where his father tried in vain to hold off the German invaders. Nijmegen, on the Rhine, is a town where they still celebrate the Americans’ liberation of Holland.

I have never before heard a better explanation for taking up arms.

 

Deadly Police Encounters As the Culture Breaks Down

This Knoxville area police officer mistake should frighten all of us, coming so soon after the Philandro Castile incident trial in which the officer was cleared. You might want to watch the Castile traffic stop and shooting video here first, before reading the article about the Knoxville area arrest.

In both instances, the officer was probably mistaken in believing that the innocent citizen behaved in such a way as to merit the officer’s drawing a gun. In Castile’s case, the officer shot Castile, killing him.

In the Knoxville case, the officer happened to see the citizen doing something that looked like she might be stealing a car: she had bought the car, and was picking it up. During the officer’s questioning, the officer drew his pistol and held the citizen at gunpoint waiting for another officer to arrive.

The city officials insist this was proper police procedure: I get that, don’t permit the lady to reach into the bag to show her purchase paperwork until the other officer arrives. However, it is a serious thing to draw a pistol on someone, escalating the risk that the unarmed person will be shot.

Now, here is the point of this post. In a culture where people still believe in right and wrong, and where right is taught from birth, almost all of the adults in that person’s life exhibit at least the propensity toward good behavior. We all learn what about right and wrong. We may err, but we know better and the mass of us can be trusted most of the time. We get out on our streets with the expectation that we will not be robbed, accosted, run over by a homicidal maniac, or even held at gunpoint by a police officer. In such a culture, crime is rare, the criminal mindset is confined to the rarely encountered few. Police officers share these experiences, and they may start an encounter in a less-stressed frame of mind.

In today’s deteriorating culture, police officers may rationally fear for their lives when simply stopping someone for a taillight out. They may perceive a crime happening where there is none; they may be more likely to believe that someone like Castile “looks like” a bank robbery suspect. They may arrive at the car door already tense, already prepared to draw and shoot upon the next perceived provocation. They may perceive innocuous behavior as that provocation.

I do not believe that either officer in these two cases set out that day to abuse police power, to shoot anyone, or to draw a gun on a woman just buying a car. But, the more demented people there are running around out here, the more likely deadly encounters are. Put another way, those who presume to preside over our culture have led us into anarchy, chaos, and danger.
