……  from all the Democrats.

In my baboon’s ass blue of a state, the word gun is inexorably linked to “right wing nut job”.

And yet again a mass shooting by some degenerate leftard loser.

If the Democrats are so set against anyone having a gun why don’t they start with their own ilk voluntarily turning them in?

Better yet, take the guns away from Democrats and leave them with us responsible folk.

I just finished re-reading (first go around was 2006 ) Russel Shorto’s The Island at the Center of the World, which is as the subtitle explains, the epic story of Dutch Manhattan and the forgotten colony that shaped America.

As a result of the English takeover of the colony in 1664, we’ve all been fed the party line that America’s ideals, foundations and successes are all due to the hardy stock and moral superiority of our Pilgrim Fathers.

Shorto’s investigation, largely based on translations of Dutch 17th century documents reveals the actual truth.

shorto-book-coverThe Dutch did not confine themselves to the southern tip of Manhattan Island.

Their colonies were spread from Delaware to what is now Hartford Connecticut.

Present day maps contain the Dutch or Anglicized Dutch names such as New Castle, Delaware, Cape May New Jersey, the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania, Rensselaer, and Brooklyn New York.

Words such as cookie, boss, cole slaw and Santa Claus exist in our vocabulary from Dutch origins.

More significant though was their concept of tolerance and acceptance that was most influential on building the American character.

The Dutch colonies were a result of private enterprise and designed to create profit for the Dutch West India Company.

This made Manhattan a commercial hub from the start and it attracted a diverse demographic, creating a culturally pluralistic, upwardly mobile and capitalistic society.

The Pilgrims who fled England to escape religious persecution quickly transformed their Plymouth bay and Massachusetts colonies into a theocracy equivalent to modern day Taliban. Refugees from there ended up in Dutch territory seeking freedom of religion.

The legal system in place was Dutch based and gave us the concept of public prosecutor, or district attorney.

It was the half Dutch, half English New York delegation to the Constitutional Convention that insisted on the Bill of Rights before they would ratify a document that limited the government’s infringement on personal freedom.

Bottom line — read the book.

Napolitano: The Right to Self-Defense

Commentary by By Andrew P. (Judge) Napolitano

napolitanoIn all the noise caused by the Obama administration’s direct assault on the right of every person to keep and bear arms, the essence of the issue has been drowned out. The president and his big-government colleagues want you to believe that only the government can keep you free and safe, so to them, the essence of this debate is about obedience to law.

To those who have killed innocents among us, obedience to law is the last of their thoughts. And to those who believe that the Constitution means what it says, the essence of this debate is not about the law; it is about personal liberty in a free society. It is the exercise of this particular personal liberty — the freedom to defend yourself when the police cannot or will not and the freedom to use weapons to repel tyrants if they take over the government — that the big-government crowd fears the most.

Let’s be candid: All government fears liberty. (more…)

Thank God for guns and the Second Amendment! Otherwise, this mother and son might have been killed.

From GOPUSA:

Woman Distracts Intruders in Time to Get Gun and Shoot

HUSTON MOTHER POPS CAP ON INTRUDER'S ASS

BRAVE MOM SHOOTS INTRUDER

Imagine what could have happened. A mother and six-year-old child are at home when she hears a noise inside her house. When she checks, she finds not one, but three armed intruders demanding money. One of the men pulls out a roll of duct tape to use on her. What happened next? She made it to her gun and shot one of them.

As reported by Channel 2 News in Houston, the wounded suspect was later arrested at a local hospital.

“When I saw three of them, I knew I was in a lot of trouble. I said, ‘The TV is the most expensive thing I own. You could take that through the front door and go with it,’ and they said, ‘No, the money, the money,'” said Erin.

Erin said she had to think fast as the men headed towards her son’s room. The mom said she distracted the men as she rushed to get her gun.

“Somehow the way it happened, as they were going down the hallway, I told them sometimes I keep money under the mattress, which is not true. But I needed to get to where my gun was,” she said.

At this point, Erin said she prayed for something to distract them so she could grab her gun. She said her prayers were answered when her dogs ran in and started barking.

“They all turned around and looked. I grabbed my gun, cocked it, I turned and shot him right in the stomach,” said Erin.

Two of the intruders escaped, but the other one wrestled the gun away from Erin before he took off running as well. Channel 2 News reports that “Adrian Granados-Yepez, 27, of Tomball, was arrested at Memorial Hermann Hospital Monday night, where he was being treated for a gunshot wound.”

Would the police have been able to do ANYTHING to help her? No. She did what she had to do and thankfully, she had a gun.

Bill Clinton: Democrats Must Respect Gun Rights, Culture

Former President Bill Clinton has a warning for top Democratic donors: Don’t underestimate weapons rights supporters.

Clinton, speaking to a group of Democrats at the Obama National Finance Committee Saturday, said gun control gets a special emotional response from people in rural states, and dismissing pro-gun arguments can backfire.

“Do not patronize the passionate supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them,” Clinton said, Politico reported.

“A lot of these people live in a world very different from the world lived in by the people proposing these things,” Clinton said. “I know because I come from this world.”

Some polls say that the public supports proposals for increased gun control, Politico reports, but Clinton said emotions will rule when it comes to legislation on gun control.

“All these polls that you see saying the public is for us on all these issues — they are meaningless if they’re not voting issues,” Clinton said.

Clinton dedicated most of his 40-minute address to guns and gun control, and said the issue will be a test for Obama’s grassroots movements.

“The way the Obama campaign won Florida, won Ohio, won this election by more than projected was the combination of technology, social media and personal contact,” Clinton said. That’s “the only way that our side will ever be able to even up the votes in the midterms and as these issues come up, really touch people and talk to them about it.”

Obama’s gun control measures, announced last week, need a congressional vote, but the Republican-controlled House isn’t likely to approve the legislation – and many Democrats from gun-strong states are wary of discussing the issue.

Clinton said that passing the 1994 federal assault weapons ban “devastated” more than a dozen Democratic lawmakers in the 1994 midterms. In fact, then-Speaker of the House Tom Foley, D-Wash., lost his job and his seat in Congress.

“I’ve had many sleepless nights in the many years since,” Clinton said. One reason? “I never had any sessions with the House members who were vulnerable,” he explained — saying that he had assumed they already knew how to explain their vote for the ban to their constituents.

“The opening line of the Constitution contains a serious typographical error: ‘We the People’ should read ‘We the States.’ As President Ronald Reagan reminded us in his first inaugural address, the states created the federal government and not the other way around.”

And the states created a monster we must now beat down!

Napolitano: Guns and the Government

Commentary by By Andrew P. (Judge) Napolitano

napolitanoIf you have listened to President Obama and Vice President Biden talk about guns in the past month, you have heard them express a decided commitment to use the powers of the federal government to maintain safety in the United States. You also have heard congressional voices from politicians in both parties condemning violence and promising to do something about it. This sounds very caring and inside the wheelhouse of what we hire and pay the federal government to do.

But it is clearly unconstitutional. (more…)

Obama’s list is a cluster of politically correct words and terms that leave doors wide open for the government to abuse our rights, which is their precise goal.

Charlton Heston said it best, “Political correctness is tyranny with manners.” And indeed it is.

This is yet another step toward making firearms completely illegal.

We must push back against every single word of it.
