As next Tuesday’s mid-term election grows near, many are unsure of their candidate’s position on their right to own firearms for hobbies, hunting and defense.
The NRA has a website that allows voters to see how their local candidates have and likely will vote on gun rights, hunter’s rights and basic American rights issues.
Voters wishing to understand what their candidates stances on gun rights are can go HERE.
For example, here are North Carolina candidates for U.S. Senator Kay Hagan and Thom Tillis’ gun rights ratings.
A NASA Antares rocket exploded shortly after lift-off Tuesday night. The rocket was carrying Orbital Sciences’ Cygnus spacecraft carrying supplies for the International Space Station. The spacecraft was unmanned and no personnel were hurt on the ground. The cause of the explosion is not yet know.
Americans across the nation are feeling less secure as ICE (a division of DHS) reported that the man who is suspected of killing two California police officers had been deported TWICE by ICE.
The fingerprints of the alleged cop-killer match those of Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte who was originally deported in 1997 for drug possession and again in 2001 for an offense that DHS will not disclose (trust-insipiring, huh?)
Monroy-Bracamonte is charged with two counts each of murder, attempted murder and carjacking. His wife has now been arrested on charges of carjacking and attempted murder.
Reading a Dallas News story on the quarantine of a nurse returning from an Ebola infected area made it clear that some Americans are more than willing to trade freedom for security until it is THEIR freedom being sacrificed for the greater good.
Kaci Hickox, a nurse who decided to go to Africa to help Ebola victims, returned. She honestly answered the entry questions and was told that she might have to answer “a few questions.”
Ms. Hickox temperature was checked in accordance with Homeland Security guidelines and found to be febrile. She was told that she would be quarantined and where.
She spent a few hours in the airport holding area and wrote that she wondered what she “had done wrong.”
No one believes that Nurse Hickox did anything wrong. She decided to help a less fortunate populace with her considerable skills – nothing wrong with that.
The confusion comes from the fact that her decision to selflessly risk her health and life did not end when she left Africa. She CHOSE to take that risk and it came with repercussions. After having two or more health workers out in the open in the U.S. after having been infected.. she should be only so happy to be quarantined. She does not get to risk the infection of the entire nation simply because she believes she is healthy.
The idea that quarantine of those coming from overseas is unwarranted is new. Animals, fruit and vegetables are inspected and held. If only humans underwent the same scrutiny, perhaps some young, innocent American children would still be alive instead of victims of a disease this nation hasn’t seen for 50 years prior to Obama’s opening of the border.
Many would gladly subject themselves to body scanners, luggage searches or other inconveniences in the hope that it makes them safer – although it does not.
Here, someone returning from an area overrun with a lethal virus is criticizing officials for keeping her out of the public until they can make sure she is not contagious.
This isn’t about who is right or wrong. This is about understanding principle over ideology. Either you believe that freedom is an easy sacrifice in return for public safety or you realize that the government can easily use public safety concerns to strip away your freedom. You cannot have it both ways. Choose carefully – the feds will not.
A Newly hired Social Studies teacher is being hailed a hero in the Marysville, WA school shooting.
Megan Silberberger, a first year Social Studies teacher, reportedly confronted the shooter while he was reloading. During that confrontation the shooter was killed.
Police are currently calling the ending shot a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but it is not yet clear whether the shooter intentionally shot himself or was shot during a struggle with the teacher.
The attacker, Jaylen Fryberg, killed one female student and critically wounded four others before he was stopped.
Hillary Clinton appeared at a Boston, MA rally for gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley and told the accepting crowd that the idea that businesses create jobs is false.
“Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs,” Clinton remarked.
Perhaps that fall in the hotel room has done more damage than anyone thought. After all, without new and growing businesses, where would the jobs come from – outer space?
In effort to make the public believe that the government can prevent violence or injury, the delusional left has gone after guns. As recent events prove, their misguided story line is a lie – the guns are not the problem and the government cannot protect citizens from crazy people.
The news agencies constantly re-surface Columbine, Sandy Hook, the Navy Yard, etc. They point out the evil guns and the damage done, but what they rarely report or re-emphasize is the fact that those committing the atrocities were ALL, every single one of them, on anti-depressants and/or other anti-psychotics.
As further research is done, it becomes more obvious – the weapon isn’t the problem and the government cannot prevent these tragedies.
Less than a week ago, Roksana Sikorski stabbed her brother and sister with a knife. She had been diagnosed with PTSD and ADD and put on medication. A gun was not the issue.
Today in Queens, NY, two NYPD Police Officers were attacked by a man wielding a hatchet. Two officers were both seriously wounded, but were thankfully saved when a third officer opened fire and shot the attacker. A good guy with a gun saved the day.
While NYPD has the luxury of a third person ready to come to their aid, the rest of America knows that the average citizen would just cower while someone gets hatcheted, knifed or beaten to death.
It is up to us to defend ourselves and each other.
