I Will Not Be Intimidated
American Thinker, by Steve McCann

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 1/8/2013 11:12:56 AM

As a young boy I was shot by a man whose clear intent was to kill me as I had deliberately, by throwing broken bricks at him, interrupted his attempt to rape a young teen-aged girl, allowing her to escape. To this day I can still see the evil in his face and the sun glistening off the barrel of the pistol he aimed in my direction.(snip) According to the current incarnation of the American left, who traffic constantly in victimhood and noble intentions, I should be in the vanguard of the mandatory gun control and confiscation movement.

I think our only hope is to call and write those we elected begging them not to bargain away our 2nd Amendment rights! The left always get what they want by coming out with some outrageous legislation, then settling for less. Nevertheless, they get something in the " negotiation" and we lose our rights!

A large part of the current Democratic obsession with gun control is that it distracts from the horrible mess they have made of our economic, domestic, health care and foreign policies. That they can spin it as "we love children, Republicans love guns more than children" is just icing on the cake for them.

The one thing the Democrats do do well is relentlessly keep the Republicans on the defensive. It works politically. For the country, not so much.

To hell with it.

Call the muster and let the revolution begin. I have bleed for my country before and am willing to do it again. I will not surrender to the liberal scum and cowards of Washington. You want my guns bring a swat team and body bags.
We will see the cowards running for protection of the socialist that still believe in guns.

Please just keep repeating the line our VP Joe Biteme uttered in the campaign of ´08 that "If Obama comes after my Beretta, he will have a problem."
Keep repeating this line again and again.
This is who they are--they will still have their Berettas while confiscating ours--NOPE!

2 things lie between the Progressives and their ultimate goal of a socialist state in control of every element of our lives: awake/aware citizens and the US Constitutional protections of our individual liberties. Talk radio and the internet have so far kept alive the resistance as the MSM, the schools, and even the ACLU have been co-opted by the left. And Progressives are hard at work to convince us to sacrifice our individual liberty. They have lost ground on the gun front over the last decade but are still determined.

Imagine thousands of Americans sent overseas to fight and and risk death, for an outwardly purposeless war, without ever winning. The lucky ones that return alive are then told, after fighting for their country, that now they are not worthy of owning their own guns Imagine this vast group of retired service, add in police, sheriffs, and throw in millions of responsible, licensed hunters, adding champion marksmen and women. Imagine all these wonderful leadership people being ordered by the likes of Feinstein, Bloomberg, Piers Morgan, Harry Reid, George Clooney communists, that this vast array of accomplished responsible Americans can no longer own their own personal, private weapons. It´s Obama driven, Hitlerian, Stalinist, Fidel Castro madness, that´s what it is, total insanity to even think of disarming all those exceptional people above, and don´t ever forget the additional untold millions more of private people who keep this country safe without any grand display. (In fact, their heroism is never allowed on the Diane Sawyer media.) We have a band of totalitarian communist driven terrorists just waiting for the next tragedy to take the opportunity to bring total tyranny to America. We know the citizen disarmed places like Washington DC and New York ity are the most dangerous, and the licensed to carry cities and states are the safest places to live. Our leaders with armed body guards, our filmmakers making vilolent movies, but preaching dis arming to that same movie goer, are giant hypocrites, thieves and they’re all self contradicting, crazy as loons. The main reason there is so much anti gun insanity today, is that the Diane Sawyer media is a tool of totalitarianism, communist driven, totally destructive to individualism

I just heard Gabby Giffords and her husband coming out for gun control! They are saying "we don´t want to take your guns, we just want some sensible laws." People wake up! Call/write your Congresscritters. This is how they intend to take our rights! A bite at a time that seems reasonable and with which our Senators and Congrespersons will think they must compromise.

Beautiful affirmation of intent to never be intimidated out of God granted freedoms as recognized in the constitution. Many of us feel exactly the same way. Unfortunately a large portion of the population are not even aware of those freedoms and are willing to trade them away for stuff. Stuff obtained by violating the property rights (one of those freedoms) of the people who have produced the stuff. That´s tyranny though very few recognize it as such.

No, you make the suggestions. You´ve been on this forum since at least Newtown telling us we need to give ground. That newlaws are necessay. Please propose a new law or regulation that will allow us to identify and interdict the severely mentally ill witohut steping on the rights of law abiding, sane citizens. Difficulty level: must be constitutional and on, I won´t acquiesce to a mental health background check just to buy a gun. Now will I agree to repeated checks while I own the gun. That´s too much control in the hands of the state.

Poster #13:
Take a look at ATF form 4473. It must be filled out for any over the counter firearm transfer. It is also becoming necessary at gun shows. However, it is not necessary to show valid photo ID, wait while I do an "instant check" records verification with state law enforcement, or attest to the state of your "mental health" or use of "illegal drugs" as long as you just murder your mother, steal her firearms, and go kill 26 unarmed human beings like adam lanza...

The democrat socialist party has labored long and hard to remove God from our schools and public square and make right and wrong (sometimes referred to as morality) "relative". Then some evil, Godless, amoral murderer takes the lives of 26 innocents and they are surprised? They got exactly what they have been working for. And their proposed solution? Take away access to firearms and accessories by law abiding citizens of course...

I will NOT be intimidated!

Quite an essay.

I particularly liked this line FTA:

"Those that self-identify as progressives, leftists, socialists or Marxists, have one overwhelming trait in common: they are narcissists who believe they are pre-ordained to rule the masses too ignorant to govern themselves."

Sorry # 13--you are the sucker these laws are intended to target! There are enough laws on the books now to "save" us from the incidents. The laws are not enforced. And when the guns are gone, folks who want to do this kind of thing will use knives, bats or whatever. Do you know the worst incident of school violence was in the 20´s (I think), where 30+ children were killed/injured. With a knife.

Here´s one suggestion #13, have the relatives of these crazies not take them to a gun range and show them what to do. Also, don´t have guns laying around so the crazies in your family can get them. I fault the relatives of these nuts, they know they are twisted.

I will not give up my guns because some families out there keep coddling their freak relations.

Actually, #21, it was explosives, not knives. You may be confusing it with the info that recently came out from the FBI that more people are murdered each year by knives and clubs ( baseball bats ) than by guns.

I think the money shot - our bumper sticker slogan should be

"Gun owners and the US Constitution should not have to pay for the failed policies of Democrats"

That is clear and cuts through all the BS about original intent of the constitution and places the reason we are even talking about this is because people are not safe as a result of Democrat stupidity.

Here´s an option #13: Re-open the mental institutions that the liberals closed many years ago on the premise that the patients would get mentally healthy by being forced to live in presumably mentally healthful society. Newtown happened, Jared Loughner happened, on and on. The list is getting longer.

The figure, #28, is that guns are used almost ten times for self-defense for every one time a gun is used in a crime.

Another suggestion, #13, is for you to ask the media why they won´t mention the antidepressants these shooters are on (Adam Lanza was on two). Covering many years: Of the most recent 30 shooting incidents that hit the national news, 27 were on mood-altering, prescribed medications. Of possible interest: Of every seven drivers sharing the road with you today, one is on prescribed medications that affect driver reaction time. The worst slow reaction times are suffered by marijuana users.

So like IRan brought in toops from the outlaying regions and so cid red china, so does Obie and his claque-easier to shoot someone you don´t know.

Perhaps we should look at the large array of drugs being prescribed by our mental health professionals which have side-effects that are predictive and involved in practically every mass killing in the past several decades.

Might put too much strain on the legal drug pushers in this multi-billion dollar industry.

I´m demanding they cease such action or suffer the consequences. Americans will not give up their guns.

Guns would not be nearly so much a problem if ATF was not the largest supplier of guns to criminals. Does "Fast and Furious" ring a bell? If ATF spent less time taking guns from honest citizens while giving them to criminals, we would have less gun violence. The violence is due to the criminals, not the guns. I have yet to see a gun jump up and shoot somebody on its own.

Lost in the liberal prattle and federal superior position is the fact that 30 states have GOP Governors who control the backbone of the US Military ---- The States national guards. These forces loaned to the federal military can be recalled to protect their state by said Governors.
Does anyone really believe our children serving us in the US Military would turn their weapons on their own families?
The Soviet rulers quickly learned their military would not?

#13, you are concerned about a relatively few people (yes, including children) killed by crazies with guns. Imagine a country where the government and their henchmen made up of black panthers, union goons, nazis, unemployed students and other assorted storm troopers have all the guns. Can you estimate the number of innocent, violent deaths that will occur in such a scenario? I am willing to take my chances with having too many guns in circulation if it means my freedom. You can look out through the razor wire fence at the world if you want to, I´m going to live as a proud free man, whatever it takes.

The biggest mistake anyone can make is believing that any of thee gun control efforts are about "safety." Our repeat multi-thread deluded poster is one of them. BS. The government (all levels) couldn´t care less. It´s about control and eventual tyranny, as it always has been throughout history. And there can be no "common ground."

None.

Thomas Piketty may not be a household name in this country (yet), but the French economist who is updating Karl Marx has quite a following at the White House and among thought leaders of the Democratic Party. Thomas Hubert of France24 explains: In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality.

Labor Fascism in Chattanooga

As the labor movement tells the story, two months ago, the silly, ungrateful Volkswagen factory workers in Tennessee foolishly rejected the generous invitation of the company and the United Auto Workers to welcome the Detroit-killing union with open arms. In an election supervised by the federal National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the workers in VW´s Chattanooga plant rejected UAW representation by a vote of 712 to 626. Amazingly, the UAW and the automaker both refuse to take the workers´ "no" for an answer. The two sides are acting in unison to overturn the democratically expressed will of the workers.

Bundy and ´Civil Disobedience´
American Thinker, by Rick Moran    Original Article

For more than 160 years, Henry David Thoreau´s essay on Civil Disobedience has inspired Americans to "make known what kind of government would command his respect" so that we could live under that government in good conscience. Ultimately, in a free society, that´s all we have that is truly our own; our conscience. Following its dictates, says Thoreau, is the only rational way to live your life and be true to oneself. It had been years since I read Civil Disobedience and I was surpised by how Cliven Bundy´s words echoed many of the theses in the essay. Legal experts overwhelmingly agree

A Soros-funded nonprofit New Yorker magazine called “one of the most important radical environmental groups in the country” has issued a statement denouncing the Bureau of Land Management‘s (BLM) decision to back away from a showdown with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and hundreds of supporters. A scientist for The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) blasted BLM saying the federal agency “has a sacred duty to manage our public lands in the public interest…instead it is allowing a freeloading rancher and armed thugs to seize hundreds of thousands of acres of the people’s land as their own fiefdom.” CBD is funded by Earthjustice

If you live in flyover country, lay in a supply of popcorn and get ready to watch a continuing comedy drama being staged for your amusement by the progressives of San Francisco. The driving force is the classic dirty little secret of progressivism, greed and envy, and these deadly sins are amply on display in Baghdad-by-the-Bay these days.(snip)Yesterday, hundreds of SEIU members rallied in front of Twitter HQ to denounce the greed of the company that provides jobs and plenty of other tax revenue to assorted governments that employ SEIU members. John Coté reports for the SF Chronicle: City nurses [who

Last week we witnessed repeated efforts by Democrats to polarize the country along racial lines. Eric Holder, speaking at Al Sharpton´s conference, implied that he and the President are being treated harshly because they are black. (snip) The Republican base that Steve Israel says is animated by racism, nominated me -- an American of African descent and a great grandson of slaves -- for Lt. Governor of Virginia. They embraced me warmly, treated me respectfully and supported me enthusiastically. The liberal media on the other hand set out to destroy me. My white Democrat opponent was even caught on camera

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
