Who is representing us?

M-16 with M203 40mm grenade launcher.
     So the gun control battle rages on and I have heard everything from the president using executive order, a crazy man yelling in Albany about making NY even harder to keep as an address, a crazy CEO of an arms company threatening to "start killing people" and yet another crazy man yelling at Piers Morgan...folks I'm going to digress for this one. The interview with Alex Jones on Morgan's show is what we call a "set up" if you want to bolster your point find a guy that is so extreme in his views, so crazy that any point argued against him seems like the right side of the fence to be on lest you align yourself with the madness that is Alex Jones. Well played Piers....well played. Alex Jones thinks that the US planned and executed 9/11, Oklahoma city, gulf of Tonkin.....ya he's one of those guys. So Piers brings him onto a nationally syndicated talk show to represent the pro gun crowd? Thank you to the idiots who allowed that to happen.

        James Yeager, CEO of Tennessee based weapons training and tactics company Tactical Response. Released a bankruptcy inducing video in which he states....“I’m not fucking putting up with this. I’m not letting my country be ruled by a dictator. I’m not letting anybody take my guns! If it goes one inch further, I’m going to start killing people.” ...fantastic! His weapons permit was revoked as a result. On the other end of the spectrum a NRA spokesman named Bud was interviewed on a Buffalo based talk show hosted by an ousted politician and a some blond girl. His arguments were so flimsy and so ridiculously unprepared and unresearched that I was yelling at the TV the better responses he should have used. It was pathetic.
       Why are these the people that represent us in the argument against gun control, the argument to support and uphold the second amendment? Crazy conspiracy nuts, homicidal tactics instructors, or wimps named Bud? Even Wayne LaPierre says some dumb stuff! The majority of anti-gun advocates are liberals, the majority of liberals are academics. Yet the people we choose to debate them are "Amerka ...fuk ya" neanderthals with 23 guns buried in their back yard waiting for the Zombies to attack or the "gover'mint" who's "come'n fir ma guns".

       I'm sick and tired of being portrayed as a gun loving violence advocate who wants war and blood in the streets and classrooms with a single digit IQ. I am a US citizen who believes wholeheartedly in the US constitution and the foresight of the people who wrote it. I'm a father who loves and protects his children. I'm a soldier who will die if asked for the betterment of this nation and the safety and liberty of it's people. I cry when innocent people die. My heart breaks when I see the battered and abused. I'm not immune to the terrible things I see in the news or horrible atrocities I see happening in other parts of the world. I'm human and I feel. ...and yes I guess I like long walks on the beach too.
       My point is this.... time and time again I listen to the arguments put forth by the NRA or pro gun groups that are by far and in large a detriment to the fight to keep our second amendment rights. I want to see fire used on fire. Instead I see bombastic extremists yelling about killing people and civil war with that crazy look in their eyes. Find someone who has a marginal control of their temper, a good grasp of proper English would be nice and at least one degree. Someone who will actually help us not put us further back. These idiots are more likely to convert pro gun to anti-gun. If you yourself are going to engage in an argument in support of gun rights with someone who is either anti-gun or indifferent, please use common sense and common courtesy. Do not start yelling like an idiot or threaten to kill anyone!! Don't act like a child....listen if you can't argue, are unpersuasive or you know you're an idiot just avoid the argument all together. That in itself will be more help than hindrance.
       I'd like to touch on a couple of topics, "the use of an executive order for gun confiscation"'s been mentioned and frankly that's scary as hell. I don't think it will be implemented to take guns away or to implement a gun grab. I just don't think the president will go that far. Executives orders can be over turned. The NRA is a very powerful lobby group that gets things done despite it's spokespeople. If a grab goes before congress it will not go far. The president knows that but I think he may use EO for smaller aspects of his gun control agenda. I honestly don't think a total ban is likely.
NY Gov Cuomo Photo
      Something that was mentioned in NY Governor Cuomo's State of the State "rant" in which he was screaming and yelling and there was a cartoon picture of him on a river....this guy is nuts. Anyway he mentioned forcing New Yorkers into having to reapply for pistol permits. Pistol permits are rights infringements and therefore unconstitutional, if he gets his way they can be denied on a state wide schedule. This is something that should scare the hell out every gun owner, especially if ALL guns require permits in the coming this one and pray Obama doesn't hear about it.
         He also makes mention that he doesn't think anyone hunts with an "assault rifle" nor do they need more than 10 rounds to do so. What he meant was no one hunts deer with an AR-15. Well I do and so do many many others who live in areas that allow the use of rifles in hunting deer. Deer hunting isn't the only game in town either Mr. Cuomo. We also use them for hunting woodchucks, coyote, squirrel, etc. I believe it's the premier hunting arm of feral pig hunters nation wide. But he knows what he's talking about, he has a Remington shotgun and has "hunted". As far as needing more than 10 rounds, DEC law says 5 anyway. Magazine capacity is a ridiculous argument, magazines regardless of capacity can be reloaded by hand in seconds.
         The whole argument of hunting or not hunting is moot. The second amendment was meant to keep the citizens armed against, and thus protected from, a tyrannical government set to enslave them or strip them of their liberties. This can happen today and it has happened in the past and in other parts of the world where the people don't enjoy such constitutionally protected rights. Anti-gunners look at this as crazy talk, unnecessary and archaic speech from worlds gone by. This view should be instantly dispelled by watching CNN for twenty minutes.

        The last topic I want to touch on is the time honored idea that soldiers will knock on your door and forcibly take your guns. I don't know where this comes from and who starts it rolling. Maybe paranoia? Whatever the case, it is will never happen. For one's unconstitutional to strip the citizens of their guns. Two...using the US armed forces against US citizens is also's illegal. Three...US soldiers ARE US citizens and most of us are gun owners and advocates. We are sworn to uphold the constitution and we will do so. The chain of command stated in that oath places the president subordinate to god and the constitution. We are told never to obey an unlawful order and the Hague told us just following orders is not a defense against prosecution. So please do not start looking at soldiers with a un-trusting eye in the coming months! We're not going to take your guns. Look up a group called Oath Keepers and that should cover it.  

       That's it for this week. Please leave a comment and tell your friends.

Above is a pic of a M16/M203 in what appears to be a school class room. That's my reserve center which is a converted little school. No disrespect to the citizens of Sandyhook was implied in this photo's just a cool gun.
