Defenselessly ‘sheltered’ as
anti-gun fortress is breached

Washington Times, by Charlaes Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 9/18/2013 8:03:32 AM

For those of us foolish enough to live in a crime-gripped city that summarily denies our constitutional right to protect ourselves, this week´s massacre at the Washington Navy Yard pretty well sums up our insane, defenseless existence.Our Capitol Hill neighborhood drowned in the screams of sirens as police cars, vans, trucks and armored vehicles streaked through the narrow streets at deadly speeds. The skies filled with the constant whopping of countless helicopters.

Charles Hurt is one of my top 3 favorite columnists - the knuckles are always bare but the sense of humor and irony remains rich.

But I must ask him: when the crisis passes, what then? It is clear that the only means of opposing, overturning and/or nullifying these insane laws passed by equally insane leftists is to openly defy them en masse.

To summarize, ´´We are defenseless, because of the silly laws enacted by the people we continue to elect.´´

The "anti-gun fortress" he´s talking about is not just the Navy Yard. It´s the entire city of DC.

And the so-called psychopaths who murder on a mass scale always seem to pick defenseless victims. Has there ever been any workplace violence or mass shooting at a gun show?

"I loathe the military."
-William Jefferson Clinton

Thanks to President Clinton´s executive action, in the Spring of 1993, disarming military personnel and employees at our military bases, terrorists can now expect more return fire from a local donut shop than a military installation.

And since the Clinton Administration, our military bases have been gun free.

The pwer elites have their personl protection at taxpayers expense. But what about We The people who pay for all the Secret Service protection, armored cars and guns (assault weapons) with ammo in them? What about us?

You had Marines there at the Barracks, the best trained indivuduals in the world, in weapons, who could have probably cleared out building 197 much quicker and with less loss of life (if they had their ammo with them) then waiting for the Metropolitan DC police to respond.

Think about it, doesn´t it make perfect sense for the Navy Yard as a perfect example, where damn near any cleared worker
should be a ble to openly or concealed "carry" ?????
Bad enough inviting the not so crazed crazies into any government school in America, but armed services bases, the Navy Yard? It´s insanity, thanks to Slick Willie
and of course, entire Washington Congress,
all insane enough NOT to revoke this stupid
pro killing idea of the former lying crook president. And yet anti gun crazed nazis like Feinstein and Bloomberg have many gun packing body guards !!!

#6, we need to constantly remind people about whose bad judgment gave rise to this ridiculous policy. Now, when a military base (!!) is attacked, there is no one to fight back. Just think about that!

And when I look at TV and see the response of the DC police and other responders, I wonder if they even read the newspapers about the tactic of terrorists to attract the responders and then include them in the secondary attack. Supposedly, there was "no evidence this was a terrorist attack;" but when the response was first made, there was nothing to go on to rule it out. So why was every emergency vehicle parked so that one bomb would take them all out??? Does that DC police chief even know the term "ambush?" She just got lucky this time.

So here we are with 12 good people dead, living in the land of gun control, where terrorism reigns because the criminals have guns and the rest of us are scolded: “Do not take action” and “Shelter in place.”

This is an insult to Common Sense - thanks Janet Napolitano.

I won´t look up the names and details, since anyone can google it, but at the time of one of the mass shootings a few years ago one guy who was in some branch of law enforcement decided that the way law enforcement were trained was flawed. Up until that time, the first cops on the scene were trained to hunker down and wait for SWAT. Problem is, while they were standing around outside, several people were killed inside, and they could possibly have been saved. So, he went all over the country training police in a new system in which the first cops on the scene go in immediately, even if they are alone. Everything changed.

Similarly here. This notion of "sheltering in place" is madness. It is complete passivity. Waiting to die. Surrendering to victimhood. It is a most un-American notion and against our nature.

We train women to fight when they are attacked. To bite, scratch, kick, punch, but fight. Fight for your life. Same here. The whole thing must be rethought. Perhaps "sheltering in place" should be replaced with "find something to hit him with." The response must recognize the reality that we are, each of us, always, whether we like it or not, our own first responders.

Gun free and hate free zones. Only in liberal land. We better get used to the fact that there is, and has been, a full scale assault on the 2nd Amendment underway. Obviously Clinton played a part as did FDR before him. Now it´s on steroids while various government agencies are arming to the teeth. Their latest line of attack is the war on ammunition as a slick "lawyerly" way around the Constitution. The 2nd Amendment says we have the right to bear arms but it says nothing about ammo. So the government corners the market and Bingo! Gun control. Al Capone and Alinsky are laughing.

Apparently this guy Alexis has been a loose cannon for quite some time. Those who came in contact with him, including law enforcement, had information on his possible mental `irregularities`. As usual, the dots were not connected.

My guess is we`ll hear of a story in 6 months that our govn is still paying his civilian contractors salary.

“Do not take action.” Instead, we are given an “event” number and instructed to call 911.

This is like calling Dell Computer for service, only to be put on hold for some foreign technician who can´t speak your language. This is something only bureaucratic idiots could come up with. I will carry a weapon anywhere that I deem dangerous, with or without benefit of the proper paperwork. After you are caught defenseless and shot dead, who is going to argue in your behalf?

Today´s law enforcement has inflated egos and are not as effective as they would like to think. A perfect example was the terrorist bombing at the Boston Marathon, where a private citizen discovered the murderer in his backyard but the police found it necessary to hold a big press conference to pat each other on the back for an hour.

So, thanks to Bill Clinton´s no personal weapons on military bases, we have 26 dead military members. 13 at Ft. Hood and 13 at the Navy Barracks.

Oh, wait a minute Hassan had a gun and Alexis had a gun. It was only the shooting victims that couldn´t defend themselves.

Clinton´s fault. I guess he does "loathe the military".

The whole 13 dead and shooter story is a big hoax. Firearms are illegal in DC, therefore I know via my elected leaders that banning guns virtually eliminates gun violence. This alleged "shooter" story is a big lie. However, IF the story were true and IF there were armed Marines at the gate like there was when I was on active duty, the shooter would have been dead just after his first trigger pull. Thankfully though, a person opening fire in a gun-free area is simply an impossibility. Just ask Dianne Feinstein.

First you get attacked at work.
Then you get "saved" by first responders
pointing their weapons at you.
Then you get patted down,
and you get to be marched down the street
with your hands in the air like you´re

New York - President Barack Obama is coming to New York City Friday to address the Rev.

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches.

But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
