Support For Gun Rights Hits 20 Year High

Bible, flag, guns, Our rights

Despite the best efforts of the media and politicians, gun rights are more popular than ever.

New polling by Pew Research shows that most Americans support gun rights over gun control for the first time in two decades.

The poll found that fifty two percent of Americans believe that protecting the right of to own guns is more important than expanding gun control laws, while forty six percent supported increased gun control.

Support for gun rights has risen seven percent in the two years since the school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. The poll reports that there has been a “substantial shift in attitudes” since then.

The poll also found that most Americans believe that gun ownership promotes individual safety. Fifty seven percent of Americans say gun ownership “protects people from becoming victims of crime”, while thirty eight percent believe that it decreases personal safety.

Support for the right to own guns has risen most dramatically among women and minorities. Five percent more women and ten percent more black Americans support gun rights over gun control than they did five years ago.

Public approval of gun rights has been increasing for two decades. In the mid-90s, nearly sixty percent of Americans preferred gun control to gun rights.

What Happened To The NRA’s Opposition To NSA Surveillance?

The National Rifle Association wrote an editorial in the Washington Times last week calling on the Senate to pass the USA Freedom Act, a bill that would have limited the National Security Agency’s illegal spying program.

The article called the USA Freedom Act “badly needed legislation” that should be “sent to the White House as soon as possible.”But the article disappeared just a few hours after it was posted. The only explanation came from the editor of the Washington Times, who said that the article was taken down as a “courtesy” to the authors.The NRA hasn’t said anything about why it had the article removed, and it hasn’t issued any follow up statement about the USA Freedom Act.

The NRA previously stood strong against the NSA’s illegal surveillance practices. In 2013, itjoined a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union against Obama’s surveillance program, saying that the program “could allow identification of NRA members, supporters, potential members and other persons with whom the NRA communicates.”

But when a bill to abolish NSA surveillance actually came up for a vote, the NRA ate its own words. Why?

The day after the article was retracted, the USA Freedom Act failed in the Senate after being filibustered by Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell and other big government Republicans.

The reasons for the NRA’s retraction are unclear, but judging by its close relationship with the Republican establishment, there may have been some backroom deal-making going on.

The Equality Hypocrites are at it again.

You know those hippy throwbacks who think it would be cool if everyone was “equal” like the Constitution guarantees? Just a heads up, the guarantee is for equal access to succeed, not a guarantee for equal success.

This president can’t seem to grasp that truth. He has a hard time grasping many truths. And now, he’s given illegals, yes, the people who came here by breaking the law, a leg up over hard-working, tax-paying Americans.

One of the first in-your-face insults was him pushing states to give in-state tuition to illegals. And once again for clarity… these people are here illegally, breaking the law, and not paying taxes. It just shows his disdain for the American way of life. Veterans can’t even get the same privileges. They have to live in a state for the state’s designated residency period before they are considered a resident who qualifies for in state tuition. Maybe they should renounce their citizenship and run up from south of the border into the arms of California Governor Jerry Brown who recently told all illegals (and anyone thinking about coming to America illegally) to come to California they were welcome here! And Governor Brown won by big numbers in California, they deserve him!

Mr. Obama has opened previously closed military bases (remember, they were too costly to keep open). He flew in medical supplies with staff to treat the recent influx of Illegals coming across the border. This was a “humanitarian act” according to Mr. Obama. Wouldn’t it also have been a humanitarian act to reopen bases to help our vets? But it appears President Obama wouldn’t think of flying in medical personal to help our vets to shorten the time it takes them to get help because of the costs. Really Mr. President? Do you disrespect us that much? I guess you really do believe Americans are stupid.

Mr. Obama, you send Eric Holder into Ferguson to threateningly suggest that there is much more going on there behind the scenes with the police than actually is. How about you send him in to the VA with threats and a guarantee that many will lose their jobs if they don’t get their act together?

Remember when you told us that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) would not pay for abortions? Remember that? Remember you said there was no money in there for illegals to get healthcare? Not to mention all that “keep your doctor,” “cheaper rates,” “better policies,” you know the “Obama bucket-o-lies” bit.

So then we find that there actually is money for abortions in Obamacare in the form of the morning after pill, abortions for “emergency reasons,” “rape and incest.” Mr. Prez, I know you have a word problem, but abortion is abortion. And when the government pays for them that is taxpayer money not yours.

Now you have given 5+ million illegals the ability to take more American jobs and drain the system. Let’s do this at a Sesame Street level so you can understand. You see, once the “illegals” feel free to roam about the country, employers will be able to hire them, and still at a lesser rate than their American counterparts. The jobs they leave open will be back-filled by more people coming over the border because the president will not do anything to secure the borders any more than they are today.

He claims that Republicans wouldn’t sign an immigration bill that included the hiring of over 30 thousand more border patrol personnel. Nice try! Would you have given those new border patrol agents the same “rules of engagement” the current border patrol has? Because if that was the plan, then they would be just as useless as you’ve made the current border patrol. Our poor border patrol agents have their hands tied so badly that even they say they should just stay home.

The president’s claims on “deportation numbers” are bogus. He is counting only those that are caught and released at the border. His numbers are dismal for deporting those here in jail or living in the shadows.

There is No Voter Fraud… Honest!

VOTE-FRAUD

If you want to see someone on the progressive left blow a gasket, talk about voter fraud. They will all tell you that it doesn’t exist or it’s so small it’s immeasurable. I say they can’t see the forest for the trees!

The hard part about voter fraud is, you have to prove the person knew what they were doing was illegal. Imagine hearing this at the poll:

Poll worker: Hello, your name?

Fraudulent voter: John Smith.

Poll Worker: Sign here Mr. Smith and I’ll give you your ballot.

Poll Worker: Sir, do you know if you are NOT Mr. Smith and you are voting for him it’s a federal offense punishable by fines and jail time?

Mr Smith: Yes, Mr. Poll Worker, and I assure you I’m Mr. Smith.

Please!!!! Have you ever heard this at the polls? Never!

One state assembly person voted 19 times, and yes, she finally got caught. She tried to say that she didn’t remember voting (18 extra times?)

In Florida, major cases of voter fraud go back to 1984 when it became so bad that it was hard to miss. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, types of voter fraud included:

  • Someone voting on behalf of someone else.
    • Purchasing or selling absentee ballots or someone’s vote.
    • Non-city residents voting in municipal elections.
    • Changing of ballots.
    • Voting by absentee ballots under the name of deceased persons.
    • Voting in the election by non-U.S. citizens.
    • False statements or information being provided with regard to address information or changes of addresses on voter registrations.
    • Possible use of certain addresses within the City limits as the “new address” for persons not residing within the City; done with the apparent sole purpose of permitting voting in the municipal election.

Andrew Ladanowski, owner of a computer software company, suspected Florida’s Division of Elections wasn’t really verifying any information.

There were over 700 voter ID cards in Florida that seemed to have been duplicated. He verified his suspicions by dong a quick analysis of Miami-Dade’s voting systems where, it turned out, there were 44 voter ID’s issued to the same person. Elections officials admit 42 of those 44 were duplicates. But what I want to know is, can’t the computer systems find these issues? Can’t we divert some of the millions of dollars wasted on the Obamacare site (or any one of the hundreds of other government programs wasting good tax money) to cleaning up voter registrations?

When finished he found over 762 Florida voters have more than one county-issued voter ID card. Some are registered with the same address, and others are registered in different counties. And a computer can’t flag this information, why?

When people snap – the weapon can be anything

Hatchet_firefighter

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.

AR-15 Variant

TIMES HAVE CHANGED, and not for the better. Wide-open borders admit terrorists, but even when jihadists are captured, the Secretary of Homeland Security denies it, and then denies they’re jihadists. What is apparently a justified shooting of a robber by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer sparks massive rioting, reminding Americans of how fragile race relations have become. On top of this, the very real threat of governmental tyranny, compounded by the serial lying of the …read more
