All guns and politics from the best gun rights and liberty bloggers on the Internet.
David Codrea reports that a writer for the El Paso Times has provided false statistics about the number of guns used in crimes that can be traced back to U.S. sources.
Mike Vanderboegh makes the excellent observation that citizens need high capacity magazines and high powered firearms PRECISELY because the military has them. That was the whole point when the Founders made sure the 2nd Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. They had to be capable of fighting off armies of tyrannical governments, even our own.
Kurt Hofmann has the story of a local police chief who rejects the notion of gun control as a means of lowering crime.
WRSA provides an excellent read on civilian control of the armed forces.
Karl Denninger declares that both Democrats AND Republicans need to be imprisoned. That may be true, but let's start with the DEMS. Harry Reid in the Senate has defied the Constitution for four straight years in refusing to submit a budget proposal, which is MANDATED by the Constitution. When violations such as these result in prison terms, things will change. But until then, we have a lawless government I call Crime, Inc.
Way Up North says that America was founded by "tough hell raisers." True. And we need them again today. That means us!
Tam blogs on reasoning with the anti-gunners. And while I can fully agree on principle, in terms of practicality I know there are many who cannot be reasoned with due to their limited brains and the brainwashing they have successfully undergone from Day One of their pointless little lives. So, what do we do about them? These imbeciles vote!
Days of our Trailers notes that while the goldbrick Hollywood elites make their money by glorifying firearms and violence, they go on rampages in their private lives against guns. Hypocrisy, anyone?
Alphecca wonders if sugar will be the next tobacco when it comes to the sticky hands and fingers of the nanny state goblins who can't wait to find something else to regulate and prevent us feebleminded numbskulls from getting our ignorant hands on.
Pamela Geller reports that CAIR-HAMAS is protesting the exclusion of a Muslim cleric from entry into the country who called for Christians to have their throats slit and their skulls crushed. Just more normal goodness from the "religion of peace."
Happy New Year, everyone! Sorry if I don't share the optimism of some conservatives about what is ahead. I honestly believe much sorrow, weeping, and gnashing of teeth are ahead in 2013. The truth is the truth, and I refuse to engage in false optimism. The best thing I can tell you to do is pray like you've never prayed before, and make sure you are prepared. It's coming whether you want to think about it or not.
