O O O. If they really have a subsidiary of the National Rifle Association called Guns "R" Us, I haven't heard of it.  Maybe they do, I do not know. Really, I would not want them naming a gunstore after a kids toy store. I just looked at that pic and see a replica shape of the US, and that it is saying that all people have a right to own and bear arms, and protect themselves if need be, instead of having to run-Stand your ground- in which case one could surely get shot if they were supposed to run instead of protect themselves. This government would like noone to own and bear arms except the gov't. and their army. That should have been a danger signal to everyone the first time it was ever heard, about the guy in the WH wanting to take away certain weapons from citizens, and make them illegal to buy. A huge danger signal. Hence the rise in gun sales. The gov't will only be able to take away citizens weapons, for they will never be able to take away gangs or other criminals weapons, or the kinds they want, and I am a firm believer in regular folk owning and bearing arms,- the kind they want.

That is exactly the way I looked at it!

I have not heard Obama directly say he is taking away the right to bear arms.


I am not getting suckered into the internet writers or Fox anymore who make too many assumptions.  They rile people up and make people angry purposefully.


I don't need the added stress from these people who have an agenda also.

The right is just as bad as the left.

Sorry, but I am sick and tired of both far weirdos that are too way out there.  That includes Beck, who is full of hate and malice.  I don't need these people in my life, nor will I partake in responding to their idiotic rants anymore.


You have a mind of your own, use it, you don't need these morons inciting you into hate and anger.  Judge for yourself, listen with your own ears.  Read good books with valid authors rather than listening to these raving maniacs.


Hatred builds in your soul and that is not what good christian people are, they are open to all and should not be fooled by anyone from either side.

Not directly. But from where he stands, directly enough for me. He does think that AK-47's/assault rifles only belong in the hands of soldiers. I don't trust that one bit when it comes to Obama,- In 2009, President Obama said that: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”  Makings of a police state under the likes of Obama. I for one of many am not for sitting back and saying okay, let him have his way, and let's see what he does with it.  He's also made the comment that killings were not just done with those, but with cheap handguns. I'm for a person having the liberty to own the type of gun they choose. To my understanding Russia and Britian ban handguns.?  It's the first step. This gov't. runs what weapons they wish as it is, enemy not excluded.

I agree they are not deserving of a quick demise, no more than a rapist, child molester, or animal rapist. He and his have been happily raping our country from the start. Something is better than nothing though.

Have to go get ready to leave for the day. We're meeting our friends back in Gruene where we had my husband's office Christmas dinner get together yesterday, before they leave back to AZ tomorrow.  The get together was nice and Gruene is nice, but I do not care for Gruene Halls food, - not good fried shrimp, and the potato salad was, well, awful. Tried their baby backs, and steak, and wasn't impressed at all. Nice place, but wouldn't recommend them except for their desserts. We'll make up for that today though at The Salt Lick, which has great BBQ. 

Have a good day!

How cowardly can human beings get that they have to have guns in the first place because they can't muster up the courage to find ways to honestly get along with one another? The United States is a prime example of a society of cowards who definitely show this!

Well Ken, I'm not going to sit back and not have them, simply because of the looney tunes out there, criminals and gangs, who would wish me and others to do just that!  I don't know if you've noticed, but criminals and gangs don't want to muster up the courage to get along with anyone.  Getting along with anyone is the last thing on their mind!

Had a very long day all. Good to see you Raymond! Wish we could see you more often!  We spent the day driving up to Wimberley, going to a brewing company, then to a glass factory, watched them make a glass vase,  then to Driftwood, for some of the best BBQ anywhere around, got to meet the owner for the first time, and had quite a nice long conversation with him. Awesome place he has there with a wine tasting house, 35 acres of grapes, expanding to 70. Been a long weekend after going to Gruene Yesterday and spending the day and evening too.

  Calling it a night.   Have a good one all!

I can fully understand that "getting along with anybody is the last thing on your mind" as it clearly shows in the posts you leave in these groups. Maybe selling your own individual fears is the way to live for you and those that join in with your behavior but it is totally selfish and inconsiderate to me and definitely shows by the shape our country and world is in, that it's not working in any way!

In the movie 'Helter Skelter' Charles Manson made a profound statement, during his murder trial, that fits in here. "I'm just a product of your society."

Woo, maybe we should be watching for you also, since you agree with Charles Mason!

Well Ken, it's clear you got a huge chip on your shoulder. And you know what, it'people like Manson, that are unfortunately just one of the reasons that some people wish to be armed. It almost sounds like you think everyone should just lay down their arms, that are not criminal minded, and try to reach out to a looney coming at them with a knife, axe, what have you, or if trying to break in your house, that one should think that maybe they can talk the criminal out of doing them any harm. If you call it selfish and inconsiderate to say that I will do what it takes if ever need be to protect myself and my loved ones, then from your point of view, consider me that. As for myself, I choose to be considerate of myself and my loved ones.

OK Ken...

All your cowardly owning of guns is doing is avoiding solving problems that would lead to solutions of getting along with one another instead of protecting and defending ourselves from one another!  

There's more to feeling safe by making minds process thoughts decently then there is with the intimidation of thinking weapons will accomplish feeling safe! You are only as safe as you think you are in your mind and if fear rules your mind that sure isn't any reason to make the rest of society pay the price for you not knowing how to use your own cowardly mind!

5 years ago

There is no reasoning with you, is there? I think Raymond and Sherry made it very clear. I for one do not own a weapon, mainly because I cannot afford one.

5 years ago

If you consider it cowardly to want to protect myself or loved ones, even someone else given the chance, from someone else torturing/killing them, then you do that. Noone responsible is going out there and just shooting anyone they see, or something they don't like, or thinking wahoo! -this is the wild west!-except for your gang members, and very mentally imbalanced. Get them to change their minds Ken, process decent thoughts. When I see it, I'll believe it. Till then, it's what we have to live with and those that choose, to protect themselves and their loved ones from, when possible!

It's your right to NOT protect yourself from such an event, and get knifed, stabbed every which way but loose, beat to death, ice picked to death, shot, watch it happen to a loved one, a friend, whatever. If that's your choice to not want to be able to do something about it,  noone is trying to take that away from you, if that's what you wish, even if they don't agree with your reasoning. Wouldn't it be great if this was a Utopian world? Everybody got along with everybody, everybody respected each other, noone had to worry about those who want to rule the world? Noone had to worry about the insane, like Manson, and others, and everyone could trust everyone else?   Sure. Seen it happen yet, throughout the world's history? Something magic gonna make it change? Not IMO, until the day peace rules on earth.  Your mind is not going to stop a killer or someone intent on doing wrong to a child, or another adult. 

5 years ago

I know everything has gone up, but if you really want one Ivonne, you might try going to a gun show when one comes around, and talking with, and asking questions of the seller, what you want one to be able to do, about good used ones even. Their should still be some fairly less expensive ones out there, pretty cheap, and you can always haggle with a private owner anyway. Ask what is the best ammo to purchase for said gun, as cheapest is not always best at all.

5 years ago

And I am sticking with calling you all cowards which is the real problem in the first place in our dysfunctional mental minded country!  I brought up the point that Manson was a product of our society the same as everything else your own individual fears create into problems for our society. I mean you act like children expecting your mommies and daddies to protect and defend you from the big bad wolf when now it's your turn to be adults and protect children from the big bad wolf. 

So fine your cowardly attitudes take over our country and where's that getting us? I mean Obama just issued a warning to Syria that the use of chemical weapons is unacceptable and at the very same time he probably is got something going behind the scenes to militarily invade Syria while there is the fear of the fiscal cliff fed to the citizens in our own country. So where's your cowardly mentalities in wanting gun ownership to defend and protect yourselves fit in when it comes to even guessing at what to do about the deceit and deception fed to us by our own government who we stupidly elect to represent us? I mean the taxpayers are going deeper in debt to give the Syrian rebels guns which are to overthrow there existing government so the US can put in a puppet government and none of you show the mental capability of even understanding stuff like that. So if you can't understand things like that where is the rest of society suppose to feel secure with people with your cowardly mentalities having a gun? I thought we elect people to represent us but what reason is there for doing that when ignorance rules by using fear to control and manipulate? 

Maybe you all ought to go look in the mirror and shot the mirror with your guns with the intention of protecting and defending yoursleves from your own fears!

I haven't got my mom or dad here to cry to to help me, and I wouldn't if I did. If they were still here, it'd be me looking out for them. And I don't call gov't. mommy or daddy, like far too many see them as, now. I wasn't around when whatever caused Manson or others like him to be what they are happened. I didn't make up their thought processes, or their brain. No, I didn't cause all the gangs out there, getting worse. They exist,  that's the way it is unfortunately, and I choose to protect myself whenever able. You think everyone who owns a gun is running around in fear, looking over their shoulder at every move anyone makes?  Wow. I guess better they let themselves get shot, or others, kids, doesn't matter, rather than decide to carry a firearm, so they can prove to everyone else they have no fear. In life, no matter what one does, it can be healthy to have a little fear, not to the point it consumes ones being, and responsible gun owners  aren't like that. Better go after the real killers, and ones with no fear of consequences of shooting and killing another for no damned good reason. When you get 'em all, let me know. Till then, I like practice, it's fun, and I won't be shooting any mirrors-too much of a mess to clean up.

No experience in any country that has outlawed guns? Then you do not have ANY right to comment on being "cowardly" you probably hide under the bed during thunderstorms...... the noise scares you. Let ME give you an example of a country that has banned ALL guns AND what the crime rate and the crimes are....

South Africa where I lived for 2 years 1/4 mile from downtown Johannesburg....

Crime.... Murder capital of the WORLD period
The crimes mostly just murder... they break into your house, hack you and your family up with machetes rape you ALL and don't even bother to steal anything

ALL of the criminals have guns and frequently have shootouts with police (and win)

I have been in a Taxi war there...... not a cop in sight....

So when we say that only the criminals would have guns you can bet your a$$ it will only be the violent ones and living in rural areas where the nearest cop is more than an hour away it is STUPID not to be able to protect oneself.

In closing I would say to you, when YOU have walked through a country like S.A. and been to the inner city... Joburg, Alexandra, Hillbro and such THEN you may call ME a coward, your OTHER option is to say it to my face.
But I am sure that with your attitude you are WAY to much of a crying little wanker to do any of the above.

I don't know how I ever got out of those gun shows alive, Ivonne!!! - everywhere I looked there were guns!  I couldn't imagine why none of them were pointed at me! I got to thinking how they all might jump up of their own accord and start firing at me! Must have been all those crazy ready to shoot and kill gun dealers and customers hanging around that kept them from it! Whew! I was sweating bullets when I got out of there!- 

Yes, I was there, but funning aside, Ken, start with crime rates in Switzerland and Kennesaw, GA-but who hears of places like Kennesaw much?

Bradlee Dean: Gun Control Dictator Style

by BRADLEE DEAN on DECEMBER 3, 2012     Print This Post Print This Post

“All political power comes from the barrel of a gun.  The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.”

- Mao Tze Tung, Nov 6, 1938

How ironic that those who are calling for gun control are those who want the guns so they can have the control.

It is of interest to the American people to take note of those who they entrust to serve them. We are a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, yet time and time again in this country we have leaders in government who put on the guise of &ldquoatriot” and then turn out to be the criminal in garb.

We learned last week about the criminal acts of anti-gun mayors. We found that anti-gun mayors are criminals themselves, guilty as charged within their own ranks of such crimes as tax evasion, extortion, accepting bribes, child pornography, trademark counterfeiting, perjury, and one demigod mayor was even convicted of assaulting a police officer.

The crimes that these anti-gunner mayors are convicted of suggest they are public enemies rather than public servants. No wonder they want to take guns from law-abiding citizens.

These politicians know all the well that where the citizenry operates in the rights given to them without government interference, namely the right to bear arms, crime diminishes. And with mud on their face, they know when they interfere with the right to bear arms, crime skyrockets.

What we see is that some of today’s politicians are magnifying the crimes they are placed in office to prevent.

They allow crime to be promoted through entertainment (see here) and when the crime is committed, they are there in hopes to grab the guns away. (see here),

This is exactly how they operate. They demonize the gun, not the criminal.

Friends, this mentality is like blaming spoons for people being overweight, as if to say the act is apart from the actor.

Since criminal politicians refuse to look at history, which can be at the present our greatest teacher, it is very clear that gun banners know exactly what they are attempting to do -– put the Second Amendment in the crosshairs.

Looking back, who has committed murder in the largest degree? Dictators Adolf Hilter, Mao Tze Tung, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, etc.

Time and time again it has been a corrupt government who is responsible for the mass murder of their own people under the deceptive guise of “gun control,” all of which the said dictators implemented.

Keep in mind these people promised their citizens protection and freedom upon the forfeiture of their guns.

How many times, I ask, does history need to repeat itself?

5 years ago

Paralleling History

Let’s parallel history with the present ideology and methodology that those in the past blueprinted to implement gun control.

Mass murderer Adolf Hitler at a dinner talk on April 11, 1942 said:

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms.  History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.  Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.”

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Josef Stalin, the sole leader of the Soviet Union from 1924 to 1953, said:

“If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.”

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.  From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Mao Tze Tung, communist dictator of China said:

“War can only be abolished through war, and in order to get rid of the gun it is necessary to take up the gun.”

China established gun control in 1935.  From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Idi Amin, president of Uganda from 1971 to 1979, said:

I do not want to be controlled by any superpower. I myself consider myself the most powerful figure in the world, and that is why I do not let any superpower control me.

Uganda established gun control in 1970.  From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Pol Pot, who created in Cambodia one of the 20th century’s most brutal and radical regimes, was responsible for killing one million of his own ‘educated,’ yet unarmed citizens.

Our forefathers did not arm the American people for the purpose of hunting, but rather to protect themselves from those who were doing the hunting, namely the tyrant King George. The second amendment is only to vouchsafe our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and to ensure all of the other rights given unto us by our Creator.

The wisdom of the framers of the Constitution once again is found consistent with the lessons of the Bible they used as their bedrock for civil law. The people’s individual protection should always be a primary concern of government “of the people”.  In a righteous country, self-government reigns by the constraint of Christian morals. The civil government that desires such a monopoly of force (i.e. they are the only ones with guns) is a threat to the lives, liberty, and property of its citizens, for that government ceases to be “of and for the people.”

George Washington, our first president, said:

“From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.”

I do have the right to call you a coward Raymond and fit you into the highest degree of cowardice that there is. It is your own individual fear manufactured in your own individual mind that I definitely see your cowardly behavior being sold to others because you do not have the courage to man up and learn to use your own mind for the good of all human beings instead of selfishly and inconsiderately believing in only protecting and defending only yourself.

I can understand females doing that but not males who are the ones who I totally believe are to earn female's trust and respect so they can feel secure in life and wouldn't have to have things like guns to protect and defend themselves. In other words Raymond, I question your being a man.

Now as for your stupid words about being in another country which only make me believe more that somebody like you should not have the right to gun ownership. I have been in the service in other countries. Once on a NATO mission we harbored in Scotland and the country shut down the bars because they understood what the Navy personal were like. The people opened up their homes and took the service people in for socializing. Simply put to a non-functioning mind like yours Raymond, they didn't arm themselves because of their fears but opened up their hearts to us which showed their love for other human beings. Have you ever thought about getting some mental help?

Now back in the good old USA I was 67 when I got assault by a 15 year old and did have physical damage done to my body. To my surprise nothing could be done about this because we in the US are totally incompetent in solving and dealing with our own problems. Even if I would have had a gun I would have been the one to get into trouble as the kid had more rights and sympathy then I did. I mean I had to push like crazy just to get them to write this up and even seeking medical help would have cost me money I didn't have. I live next to a school where the kids have no families to give them a foundation of what's right or wrong in life and that does not change. Without a gun, the following year I again took a stand and found that my telling authority figures that I would take everything these kids could throw at me, including killing me, but in the long run it would all fall back on their incompetence. I never got a gun and learned that I have to not let fear rule my mind and just let them do what they want but not back down in the least because that's the only thing that works in changing the direction for the better. In other word Raymond I had to have the courage to stand up instead of letting fear rule. 

Now that would be nice if it was the end of the story but at age of 73 I got assaulted again. This time it was a Mexican guy who looked like his body didn't have anymore room for tattoos. In going around with him I found out he got out of prison four months previously to this. I asked him what he was using for brains because that meant he was on parole and he just got done assaulting me. He was going to kick my butt which made me get in his face more. So after this ordeal I called the cops. This time they made a report about it. The cop said they didn't want to see me get hurt and I held up my arm showing the blood running down it. I asked what they could do about it and was told now I could call 911. I instantly brought up that if this guy just got out of prison four months ago and he's this way now, I'm better off getting hurt because your way is not working. 

I did not need no gawd damn gun to deal with the problems that came my way. I needed courage which your stupid reasoning for gun ownership lacks completely.

I would LOVE to be you neihbor.....

Ken: In other words Raymond, I question your being a man.

Ken: Have you ever thought about getting some mental help?

Consider your words of looking in a mirror, since you're so free with the ignorant name calling.  I would rather have a man,  like Raymond around me with a gun if a thug was going to come after us, because surely if they got the man, the woman is next! Only hopefully, if in that situation, I would be carrying too, so as not to let them attack the man in the first place, and if they did, then I have the chance at least to still protect myself or anyone with me.  You are damned lucky, yes, just  lucky, to still be alive to be here to condemn others for owning weapons.  I don't see any sense in your reasoning, but it's your  choice to not own a weapon, and if a similar incident occurs again to you, to take that fat chance of being murdered. Noone is trying to force a weapon into your hands. On the same token, you or anyone else against them, hasn't any more right to try and force them out of the hands of people who do choose to own them.  If you consider it more manly, or womanly to take the chance of getting killed, maimed or possibly ending up in a wheelchair, or just kept alive by machine in some hospital bed, rather than having the chance to stop it from happening, then if you have a woman or children around, who could be murdered, raped, tortured, because you chose not to defend yourself or them, then you are surely not someone who could be counted on to protect anyone in such an event. I, and many others, are not willing to just lay down our life or our loved ones, for a criminal, because that's what you would do. Courage is great, but not mightier being unarmed when it comes to someone intent on doing another harm. Just invite a criminal in if they're trying to break into your house, ask them if they have intent of killing anyone, or raping the wife or kids, or stabbing them to death, or putting a bullet in their heads, before they go about their business. - good luck if that ever happens.

I value my life and my loved one's lives more than to wait and take the chance to see what type of harm some whacko is going to do to them, or not. You choose to take that chance. Good for you-but not for anyone with you if something were to ever happen again. They don't deserve what could happen to them because you choose not to care what could happen.

You call us cowards, and our reasoning stupid. It therefore can be said that you are cowardly for not wanting to at least protect others if the situation arose. Call your own reasoning stupid.  It wasn't courage or reasoning that saved you before, as very rarely has reasoning with a criminal been a good defense. In any case, I'm NOT willing to take that chance with my life, or my loved ones.

Ken: I never got a gun and learned that I have to not let fear rule my mind and just let them do what they want but not back down in the least because that's the only thing that works in changing the direction for the better.


Tell that to the mother with a new baby who had someone breaking down her door, they knew she was aware of it, she was home alone. If she hadn't shot him when he burst in, do you know what a whacko like that would have done to her and her baby? Or, in your mind, did she not have the right to save her and her baby's life?!  Or the older woman who was yelling at the idiot breaking in her door from the outside that she would shoot? Her talk and words didn't stop the lunatic.  He got what he deserved, and her life was saved. It's not been just women in those situations, and the man is no less of a man for protecting himself with a weapon.

Tell that to the many innocent who have been brutally murdered, raped, throats or bodies slit, bodies riddled with bullets, set on fire, kids included.  Tell them if they would have just let the criminal have his or her way, they'd be better off. It didn't happen because they didn't back down. It wouldn't have mattered to the whacko if they even had a chance to try and talk   their way out of it.  You have the right to not protect yourself and hope you'll always be around to talk   your way out of being murdered or maimed for life in process.  And we have the right to not take the chance of being murdered, or our loved ones being murdered, and all that can happen before the perp decides to wield that final blow. You deal with it how you wish Ken, we'll deal with not procrastinating. It's our right to choose not taking the chance to find out if we're going to be murdered, raped, what have you, as much as it is your right to try and take the chance to talk your way out of it possibly happening. You do that, and I hope it serves you well if such a situation arises agian.

Ken: I can understand females doing that but not males who are the ones who I totally believe are to earn female's trust and respect so they can feel secure in life and wouldn't have to have things like guns to protect and defend themselves. In other words Raymond, I question your being a man. 

You're questioning Raymond on being a man???   Telling everyone they are cowards, and that his words are stupid?  That he has a non functioning  mind, and you think you do??? Talk about stupid reasoning Ken!-  To yourself. You're the one willing to let the criminal have his way with you and anyone therefore, with you. Thanks for men like Ray!

I am aware that the United Nation's has several treaties that Obama wants into law of this land and I am quite nervous about that but I wonder how many people are aware of this new UN confiscation of our freedom and liberties. 


Today, the UN votes on giving Palestine a seat at the UN where they will have clout and this is a tragedy because Hamas controls Palestine and Hamas is a terrorist organization.

You have all those radical progressives who side with Palestine over Israel and this is exactly what they want to erradicate justice.

Does anybody here know the reason that Japan (the ONLY reason) did not invade America during WW2?

Because "There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass"

But Ken seems to think that the Muslims (yep the ones that have vowed to destroy us) pose no threat, the same ones Ob wan is letting in by the hundreds of thousands with NO background checks.

He will be more than happy to roll over for them.... heck he will more than likely be happy to bend over for them.

Yes sir, thank you...not to mention I have posted where the Muslims and chinese have their own training camps right here in the old USA, right under our noses. When the right time comes forthe chinese to collect allthis government owe us, they don't have to invade us, they are already here!

Video: Obama Trying To Ban Semi-Automatic WeaponsDec 03, 2012 01:30 pm

Obama is secretly trying to ban semi-automatic weapons under the guise that they can easily be made into automatic weapons. This is a false argument and will lead to a government confiscation of hundreds of thousands of weapons held by law-abiding citizens.

I too would love to have Raymond in my neighborhood because I would definitely push Raymond's buttons to get out from behind his fear based thinking that he has to have a gun to defend himself. I stand firm with bringing up that I do see his behavior as totally cowardly and I believe he is to ignorant to leave any human being feeling secure with his mentality in owning a gun. I cannot see where he has the reasoning ability that would ever make him responsible and accountable in doing what's best for the direction and well-being of our whole society. He has expressed this in his posts as have those of you who support him, which are mainly made up of the female gender.

I mean I'm writing this stuff not looking for support and I'm only using words standing up to your cowardly behaviors in thinking defending and protecting yourselves is making the world a better place to live. All your selfish and inconsiderate cowardly behaviors do is divide us. While you all stupidly defend gun ownership more is being taken away from you because you all are to dumb to know any better between what's right or wrong for all of us living in our country. In other words we all have to be distracted from doing what's right by your immature cowardly behaviors of thinking only about yourselves. 

Right now as I write this more war is being instigated with Syria and todays news told how US weapons went to radicals in Libya with US approval. At the same time you all are to stupid to see all of this going on and how the fighting about the 'Fiscal Cliff' is going to demand cuts from many of us in living in the US with things like SS and health care. None of you show the mentality to see how fast our own government can move our debt for war up and how slow they are at doing anything good for the citizens of the country we all elect them to represent us in. But no you cowards can only focus on your childish mentalities of wanting to own guns so you can defend and protect yourselves instead of uniting and courageously doing what's best for our whole society! What does it take to wake you lamebrains up to the fact that your ignorance is destroying us?

If I do need mental help it would be in staying away from your cowardly fear based mentalities for sure!

Those subjects have been discussed Ken, in other topics.  Now, you think every law abiding citizen shouldn't have a gun.  Just let everyone die at the hands of a criminal intent on doing them harm, family and all, and you think it will make the world a better place?  Astounding. Or do you think everyone can talk their way out of getting maimed, raped, stabbed, shot? Or always use their bare hands to ward of such? You think everyone should just let a criminal do as they wish, have their sick merry way, and the world will be a better place?  When would you expect this by?  The gov't sure as hell is not going to give them up, their thug criminal friends are not going to give them up, their terrorist friends are not going to give them up, the gangs are not going to give them up, and you expect others to give them up.

Raymond, Sherry and all ....


we are living in totally insane times, the fact that Obama got re-elected just shows how stupid the people are in this country.  They are braindead and don't give a damm about liberty, freedom and our Constitution.  The majority who voted for Obama are solely interested in lining up for freebies which is so sad as they sold their soul for a mere pittance.


We have to endure trying times where our freedom will be tested daily and this is just one more plight in the days ahead.  Justice is turned upside down and a person who did the right thing is scorned by being fired.  If he sat back and watched the murder of his fellow employee; he probably would have got a promotion or his job!  this is the absurdity of what we live with today!

Sadly, you are so right!  They could care less about our freedoms and rights, and it makes me wonder, how many of them will gladly give up the freedoms they have now, their childrens, if they were told to get on that train?-as in Ivonne's photo up above?  But I guess a good many of them have already answered that question. They certainly have sold their soul.

I agree, if that guy had lived, and then been able to go to the assistance of anyone still maybe alive, he would have probably at least been given a pay raise. Some are so stupid, and brain dead, that they would have rather seen the lot get murdered, than any have a gun, and save lives like this guy did. It's just unfathomable. What if one of these anti-gun people had had a child in that Autozone?  Would they think it was better for them to get murdered? I don't even think I want that question answered!

So when I wrote about being assaulted and wrote that if I would have had a gun I would have been the one who would have got into trouble. Look at Florida where now there are two deaths and both the ones who shot others were the ones who got in trouble. None of you show the mentalities to look into the whole picture and with your childish claims that you deserve the right to have guns only shows that none of you are actually capable of making decent decisions and would shoot first instead of reasoning about what's the right thing to do for the good of our whole society. And I do mean none of you!  

Your stupidity shows when I read about what you actually wrote about freedoms and rights. Where do any of you write about responsibility and accountability on your parts or do you all think your childish mentalities will let you get by behaving the rest of your lives that way? You all are only as free as you tell yourselves you want to be but all of you blame that choice of being free on others outside of your own minds where the actual choice is made. This to me is the main reason I do not believe any of you should have the right to gun ownership. You all just don't show your own minds are capable of being responsible enough in reasoning decently to own guns. Simply put you're to gawd damn dumb!

Don't any of you read the news? They want to raise the medicare age to 67 as a way to deal with the debt crisis and our government is sending warships to North Korea because they are launching missiles. I mean you need your stupid rights to own guns and whatever else your lame-brains can muster up and our own elected government is sending ships which only adds to the the debt that in order to fix will take away from the citizens of our country. Look at how much money we have given to Egypt to promote democracy and help with job creation and we got their elected leader out of office yet the protests are worse then ever again. The list showing the ignorance of the people in our country is endless and then to read your demand from others about what you all think is your right and freedom when all your cowardly characters show nothing but the selling your own individual fears is sick. Personally I hope you get your ways because a sign over the entrance to hell reads, "Abandon all hope."  Your behaviors do exactly that as fear only brings more fear. At least what anybody has ever done to my body has healed. Fear never heals! Maybe in time the rest of the world will take charge of our country then because we couldn't take care of it decently ourselves.  Fear kept us from taking care of it!

Ken, I don't believe you ought to own one. It's probably a good thing you don't want to own one. Sound like you'd turn it on someone with you, or yourself before you'd use it to protect anyone. And then the good ol' whacko can have his fun with you or whoever is left. I'd rather myself or my loved ones, or someone else be left alive, and get in trouble, which should never, ever be the case, but I'll opt for life or the life of my loved ones, rather than just letting them be murdered. We know about raising the age, have heard about the ships, and when they take away more from the people, the worse crime will get here.

The medicare and social security age was raised to 66 and 6 months which affects me as I cannot collect til I hit that age instead of 65; so they keep adding on another 6 months and hope many die before they get it.


They will kill us by denying coverage and care; yet, they give medicaid, food stamps, housing and everything else too illegals and the people they deem poor.  It is better to claim poverty than playing by the rules!


No one wants vigilantism and there is a big difference in stepping up and doing the right thing compared to going on a vigilante spree.  I think most people are mentally sane; unfortunately, we have a lot of whackos out there and they do commit crimes with guns.

Just look at the NFL football star who shot himself and his girlfriend.  He was whacky and was he drug addicted on steroids, pain killers as many are stating today?

I realize the gun issue is very different and it can get you in big legal trouble if it is even outside the law a little bit.  I try and stay out of trouble sites and places but who knew that a crazy would go dressed as batman into that movie but then again, would you wait in line for hrs. to go to a midnite show or go in those crazy lines to shop on friday madness after thanksgiving?

Yes, some people do, when they know ahead of time that where they are at, or what time perhaps, could lead to a bad scenario. Especially nowdays.  I will avoid those midnight shows, and the crazy mobs shopping after Thanksgiving, and staying out of driving in bad neighborhoods, if I know where they are. Got stuck in a not so good area once when our GPS failed to give proper directions in another city. We pulled over in a McD's parking lot and got out the computer, but the whole time there, I was watching and hoping my husband could hurriedly get directions out of there. Sometimes things happen. People shouldn't have to be scared of going to those midnight movies, or big sale days, but damned if we don't anymore.  The worst can happen no matter where one is at anymore, no matter time of day either.  I long for the days a kid can still be safe walking a few blocks to school and back, go trick or treating when old enough without the parents, ride bikes to the park alone. It's just not that safe anymore.

I quit driving and ride a bicycle as a main means of getting around. Gas went up and insurance cost didn't seem worth it because I just do not feel like working anymore and want to enjoy life the best I can. I walk every night after I eat for better then two miles. This morning I got into it with a neighbor who has my driveway blocked. I got nowhere with him as he said call the cops which I did but both he and I know that the cops don't do any good for people anymore so yes we live in fear. I mean the first time I got assaulted and a neighbor woman seen it and did tell the cops what she seen. Then when I pushed to get this into the courts she said she was looking down and didn't see nothing. Over and over again and again this same woman clearly shows her fears rule her life. In my own mind that leaves me totally on my own with dealing with this crap. If I'm going to do anything about what I believe is wrong for society I can confidently walk alone plus I have the patience to know that faith is still important. Maybe thing don't go down the way I think they should, but in the long run they usually go down for the best of humanity.

When it comes to guns my daughter went to the top of a parking garage and by the footprints in the snow the news calculated she went up there five times before she went to the edge where she put a gun to her head and ended her life. The gun came from a drunk who my ex was involved with plus they had caught my daughter with the gun before this actually happened. So that leaves me against gun ownership because our society is mentally dysfunctional as a whole.

I myself in the first place did not know anything about selecting who to get involved with in relationships so I have no problem accepting the blame for what happened. Low self-esteem only attracts more low low self-esteem which I'm sure it would be easy enough for all to realize that is basically what is going on in our country. Where are the basics in human beings which is self-esteem, self-confidence and self-love? Even understanding our roles our gender differences play in life aren't there.

To me I think our generation is screwed up and all we do is fight because we don't know any better. That's getting us nowhere and I think that if our country is to change for the better it could happen best if concentration would be placed on youth with teaching them about the basics and especially about what it takes to have successful relationships. I mean the NFL player had a child with the woman he killed before he took his own life. They had a sexual affair but never had a relationship. It doesn't take a genius to see that we do not know a damn thing about relationships, not only with each other but with the entire world.

'Love' is letting go of 'Fear.' All guns do is take the fear inside a person and display it to what the person sees on the outside of themselves. We reap what we sow. We sow fear, we reap fear so I think it's better to deal with the fears inside us instead of having guns for a solution to dealing with what we think is outside of us.

I am very sad to hear that about your daughter.

I don't know what to say Ken as you personally have to deal with her death and her use of the gun to end her life.  I understand better where you are coming from.


Guns are not for everyone and that is very obvious.

Guns are a weapon of destruction and those that own guns must treat their ownership extremely seriously and they know the consequences.


However, this cannot be held as fact for all gun owners.  It is ideal that they be like this but like anything else today, no one can guarantee this to be true.


People who own a gun have a big responsiblity and I believe most take this very seriously.  People who want to end their life will do so with or without a gun as a  means to end life.


5 years ago

People that don't own guns have a big responsibility too but where in the hell in our screwed up country is there any sign of people owning up to that responsibility. I mean you yourself put more effort into putting Obama and Liberals down then you show any sign of being responsible for your role in society. For me I compare this to my mother doing that to my father, my sister doing that to the males she brought into her own life, my wife did that to me and the other males in she brought into her life, my daughters did that same thing. This to me is trying to control and manipulate which I also see gun ownership as. This controlling and manipulating behavior is the problem because it is an avoidance of being responsible and accountable for individual roles we all have in our whole society!

You work with dysfunctional behaviors. Once I let an alcoholic use my shop office to sleep in and at the same time my ex-brother-law wanted my help as he's been an alcoholic since his youth. The one who slept in the office got his own apartment and got into relationships he shouldn't have. So I went to his apartment to get him into a detox center and in the process the dick head's got a gun I had to get away from him. It was only a '22 but a gun is a gun. I mean would you go to work and say all those you have for patients have a right to own guns? Isn't that pretty close to what gun ownership is in our country right now? Just how many functional mentalities do we really have in our country? Even your own with concentrating on putting Obama and Liberals down all the time doesn't seem functional to me! 

All gun owners can be held accountable in my own mind and will be because I can not see where any of them show they honestly have the mentality required to have gun in their possession. I see mainly fear expressed from gun owners as the reason and our whole society is totally messed up with fears already so guns sure won't make that any better. Look at the Colorado theater shootings or the one in Tucson where the congress woman was almost killed. I mean they take the shooter and sentence him to life in prison where they stated they will give him drugs and hopefully in time he will be able to work in prison. Where in the hell is that suppose to solve the problem of what happened in the first place? 

We executed a guy this week and what in God's name good did it do? I mean where does that stop any killings? Yesterday when I went around with a neighbor having a yard sale and his parking blocking my driveway I noticed he had a hand gun on the table for sale. This guy was young and argumentative yet no way responsible for anything but his own inconsiderate self. Excuse me but that's how I see those who cry about their right to own guns. We do not have people in our country competent enough to get along with one another for the good of our whole society and that selfish inconsiderate attitude destroyed us.

It's time to take any rights out of the picture and turn them into privileges which would be earned by proving one has earned a privilege by showing they can be responsible and accountable in dealing with the privilege.

But you already wrote that you grew up in a dysfunctional family Sheila so where's any sign of a decent foundation come into the picture for your reasoning and decision making. My point is that is not in any way functional and has destroyed any chance of making our country right for all of its citizens. Clearly your anger is a definite sign that you only see life through your inconsiderate selfish mind which processes your thinking. Look at Sherry's post right under your's and where does that show any different kind of thinking other then the same selfish inconsiderate mind processing like your own. Even in the news this kind of thinking goes on in our country and has the citizens completely brian-washed to the point that just plain common sense never could get in. Post are made about wanting to be free yet the same people that write stuff like that don't have the mentality to see their own ignorance imprisons them.

I usually walk a couple of miles after I eat supper. People in the area know me so it's common to get into conversations dong this. Last night it was a male and like most of you he's a Republican but he also makes a point of bringing God into the conversations. Last night he's going on about Obama like most of you do and then he brings in Boehner. I asked him if he wasn't afraid of making Boehner cry by talking about him the way he was. None of you Republicans have any ideas to solve problems yet all you do is complain about problems that are always with somebody other then those you look at in the mirror. And that's suppose to be a sane functional behavior you want others to buy into? This same subject came up with this Republican guy and just like all the rest of you Republicans all I have seen is the Republican party is the only thing right in your lives. Yet when this Republican complained about Boehner I made a point of saying Boehner ought to bring in a better idea if he wants to make a difference because saying what's wrong about somebody else's ideas isn't working for him. But yet this guy just like you do in these posts went on to what wrong with everything and everybody instead of even letting the bringing in a better idea into the conversation. Somehow I will never believe that's is a functional type of thinking that should have any rights, especially the right to own guns.

After I had enough of this stupid type of thinking I made a point that It's time to let our wasted generation die and waste no more time or energy on it. All we do is fight and argue with no chance of doing what's right for everybody in society. Our generation has not only damaged our country but the entire world with its dysfunctional behavior. It's time to find some people who have strength in character and start with youth instilling self-esteem, self-confidence and self-love. Plus it's time to teach youth about relationships and the responsibility of gender roles they face in life. Instead of just educating youth for the job market and making robots out of them, it's time to put the effort into helping them find ways to be human beings with a primary purpose of sharing their lives together with one another is the top priority in their lives.

Of course I'm sure it's easy enough for especially those of you who posted in this thread that this Republican could only respond with the problem with my ideas where numerous.

Clearly, you think all responsible, decent citizens should give up any guns they have.  You darned well know it won't happen with the rest. - your gov't., gangs, terrorists, anyone set out on shooting others anyplace,  anytime of day or night, along with what else they may do to them before that end.   That's not the mind of a clear thinking, functional, unselfish, considerate minded individual.  Everyone who owns one has one for different reasons-be it hunting, collecting, target practicing, protection if need be, or all of that.  But you think everyone who owns one is automatically selfish, inconsiderate, unfunctional.   Well, you go out and talk to all of the above mentioned in my second  sentence,  have them all get together for a big bonfire party, throw in all their guns, make them swear on oath they will never get another one, and then you may have something to talk about,  as far as calling other gun owners selfish, inconsiderate, functional.   That'll be the day and you know it.   That's like a pipe dream utopian mindset.  I didn't come from a dysfunctional family whether you believe it or not, and even if Sheila may have, she still clearly shows reasoning of a fully functional adult. Not every person who came from a dysfunctional family,  ends up being a dysfunctional adult. Did you come from one?-because it sounds like it, that or your realtionships, that sounded dysfunctional, or both perhaps,  that processed your thinking.

Read the whole thing.  As this suggests, please pay attention to the
section labeled: "A Little Gun History," toward the end of the article.

Why Carry a Gun?

My old grandpa said to me 'Son, there comes a time in

every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes
too old to take a whoopin.'

I don't carry a gun to kill people.
I carry a gun to keep from being killed.
I  don't carry a gun to scare people.
I carry a gun because sometimes this world
can be a scary place.
I  don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid.
I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.
I don't carry a gun because I'm evil.
I carry a gun  because I have lived long enough to see
the evil in the world.

I don't carry a gun because I hate the government.
I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.

I don't carry a gun because I'm angry.
I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.

I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.

I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy.
I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven,
I want to be a cowboy.

I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
I carry a gun because men know how to take care
of themselves and the ones they love.

I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.

I don't carry a gun because I love it.
I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

Police protection is an oxymoron.
Free citizens must protect themselves.
Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime
after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.

Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take a whoopin' unknown (but obviously brilliant)


In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents,
unable to defend themselves, were rounded up
and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control.
From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians,
unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany   established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945,
a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves
were rounded up and exterminated.

China   established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952,
20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.


Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000
Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated. 
  ---- ------------- -------------

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000
Christians, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia  established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977,
one million educated people, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated
in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

You won't see this data on the US evening news,
or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'.  Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun-control message to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win.
There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield,
and skill is more important than either.
The final weapon is the brain.
All else is supplemental.

And still Ken, noone is trying to force you to get a gun, or talk you into getting one. Not whatsoever.  So, quit cutting down the responsible, unselfish, considerate people who do think clearly, who do want one.  They could just as easily say anything back at you that you consider them, or their way of thinking.

Gotta go shopping and to the post office.   See ya all later.

While you're shopping maybe you ought to look for brains on sale! I read nothing but hate for Obama and Liberals in the majority of your posts with absolutely nothing that would ever come close to understanding and solving problems that would be for the good of everybody in our country and the entire world. And I do write that I have never seen one suggestion that would solve problems, not a one coming from you. They all appear to wanting to make yourself look right by making others look wrong. My main point in writing this is that I do not believe in any way a person with your mentality should be allowed to have a gun because of just wanting to be right yourself and not wanting to make society right for everybody!

LA man shot dead outside school near Central Park

By DEEPTI HAJELA Associated Press The Associated Press

Monday, December 10, 2012

NEW YORK (AP) — A man walking down a street outside a school near Central Park was shot in the back of the head on Monday and lay mortally wounded in a pool of blood as his killer escaped with a getaway driver, police said.

You're sure concerned about what people feel about Obama, and what you think (maybe you ought to shop for brains on sale) would be for the good of everybody in this country, and what you deem right. Your posts sound like the false Utopian mindset communists want you to have. And yes, I disdain to the hilt, what not just myself, but Americans with their eyes open, see happening in this country, and the person in the WH supporting. I make no denial about that. What have you done to make this country better?  You think like,- so the criminal is the one with the gun that shot the innocent man, so guns should only be left in the hands of criminals. I surely hope you are not dumb enough to believe that gangs, thugs, and yes, the person you defend, Obama, and his pals, thugs, Black Panthers, terrorists, will ever, ever, not be equipped with them.  Personally, anyway, I'm thinking you do know that. Hmmm.

The lusters of killing our 2nd amendment are hard after the NFL players. I wondered why! Because according to this, 80 percent own and carry!

Note the idiots that have no idea for a reason to carry a gun.




Watch good news report video here.

At least seven NFL players have turned their guns into their respective team's security following the murder-suicide involving Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher earlier this month, Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported on NBC's "Football Night in America" on Sunday.

According to the report, at least one player handed over multiple firearms, telling his team's personnel that he didn't trust himself with the guns.

Belcher, 25, shot his girlfriend, 22-year-old Kasandra Perkins, at their Kansas City home on Dec. 1, then drove to Arrowhead Stadium, where he shot himself in the head in front of Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and coach Romeo Crennel, police said.

Belcher and Perkins had a 3-month-old daughter, Zoey.

Kansas City police Sgt. Marisa Barnes said last Monday that firearms found at the couple's home were legally registered to Belcher. It is unknown how many guns were found.

"The majority of people own them, you know, especially in the places that they're legal," Chiefs linebacker Brandon Siler said last week. "People don't go out and shoot other people. Most of the time they're for self-defense or sport. Yeah, people own guns, but did you ever hear him say anything about harming someone with a gun? No."

Chiefs defensive tackle Shaun Smith bristled when asked about a "gun culture" in professional sports, and said players that carry them usually do so for protection.

"Just because we're in the NFL, that doesn't make us no different," he said last week. "You never know when someone would try to rob you or whatever. ... I've worked hard to get where I am. I'll be damned if I'd let someone just take it away from me, period."

Do you know the reason I am so concerned about the posts about hate expressed for Obama and that I connect that with people like you not being able to have guns? That hate spreading only divides us and never in any way will unite us. I see it as a fear issue where people with your behavior want to be in control of life and everybody in it. So because of your own personal fear the rest of society gets distracted by those with your behavior selling it so you won't have to ever have the courage to let go of the control and manipulation and trust others to join together with them for the good of everybody instead of just selfishly thinking of yourself all the time.

Now when it comes to what society sees as evil groups I used to do a lot of work for bikers and even though I didn't own a bike they made me a brother. At this very same time my wife witnessed patient abuse in a county run government mental institution. She gave a statement and one of the abusers was the president of the union. I'm sure nobody can understand just how bad our country really is because this went into a investigation which would be followed by a john Doe hearing. My family wasn't suppose to talk about this and absolutely no protection was given to us while threats and damage wasn't in any way prevented by those trying to stop this investigation. Then along came the bikers who would give me a gun and when I looked like I was going to use it they'd take it away. Now these some of these were 'Outlaws' who I became very close friends with. They hah one of their members listed as having a heart attack while I did some work for those related to him and they seen the body. He was beaten with night sticks. Yes these were bad actors and I spent a lot of my life under police surveillance because of that association. Yet never once did I have police protection with my wife making a statement about patient abuse. 

So to fast forward this there were seven people I did want to kill which is the ugliest feeling a person could ever have. Then I tried to get a sawed off shotgun with the intention of blowing a hand or a limb off and the bikers put me on the carpet wanting a list of names of who was doing this to us. I already had been told by somebody who run the education dept. in the state prison that the bikers weren't going to let anything happen to me because they were used to getting into trouble and didn't want to see me getting into it. The strange thing about this is that I couldn't give them any names because I didn't want to see them get in any trouble either. So I cannot see where any of us are capable of judging someone like Obama or Liberals the way you do because none of us know what's really going to happen or who anybody really is in their true characters. Here's killers, drug dealers, pimps and the rest of the scum of the earth showing me more compassion then those I expected to show it. I definitely will take these people any day of the week over the fearful characters like yours!

Actually a year ago at Thanksgiving a female who remembered me because she prostitutes herself and I gave her money without wanting sex, asked for a place to stay. Truthfully she's been so beat down in life she puts on no false pretenses and was comfortable to be around. I usually bring up doing what ever it's going to take to become responsible and people like her don't stay around very long. Another time a guy who I suspect is a dealer brings me a 19 year old female for a birthday present. Strange how the rest of society doesn't understand these young girls give themselves sexually to whoever will pay for their drugs and my daughter wrote about doing that in the late 70's already. The thing most don't understand is that I can get through more by not isolating or focusing on what's wrong with these people because it is a problem our society never stayed on top of in the first place. An example and leading to me is what it will take to do any good about the wrongs we let go unchecked for to long now. 

I am not defending Obama but I most definitely am expressing what I see as your dysfunctional behavior distracting others in promoting your hate!

Ken, I knew some bikers too, from where I used to live, one of them Hells Angels. Yes, bad Hombres. But this guy fixed whatever I needed done to my car for just beer, when I needed it done. He never tried anything or expected anything more.  We got along great. He went to automotive school, when I was going to another class right by. Our classes would get together at end of day, and share pitchers of beer. He thought he would intimidate me at first, with words, but ended up pulling his hat down over is eyes, then looking back up and telling me "You know, you're alright."  He would have had my back in any situation.

What's amazing, you sound like you think everybody who wants a gun or has one, is living in such fear that they're walking around with one ready to pull the trigger. So far from the truth. The one's waiting and dreaming of pulling that trigger, are your criminals. And just like your post, you hear of it everyday. Those are the ones who should never have one. They are the ones looking in fear over their shoulder for the rival's to blow their head off, and doing drive-bys.

Gootta go- dang hot water went and have to be back before repairman gets here.

Ken:  Obamaism is the worst kind of govt.  it is the road down the path to marxism;  his paternalism of giving out goodies to the underbelly in our society is hooking them onto freebies and not being self - reliant, self-sufficient, independent human beings.


We are a problematic society of too many unwed mothers whith too many kids and no fathers, crime, drugs and the hanging out mentality which is trouble.


obamaism will indulge these people to do nothing and collect whatever they can from the govt.

as long as they have their cell phones, computers and wide screen plasma tvs, and they drink and drug ... all is well in obamaland.

First of all when the one of the 'Outlaws' was killed by the police with their nightsticks and then the news reported he died of a heart attack, this deceit and deception has overtaken our country long before what it's like right now. If anything our elected government has fine tuned the deceit and deception. The bikers did have bad behaviors but they were rebels who did not want to fit into the system. The "Outlaws' were out of Milwaukee, Wi and trying to fight anything only revealed the police chief controlled and manipulated the city by having different departments that dug up dirt on city officials and used that dirt for leverage against them. 

So I had a little roadster that the bikers usually included me in their activities. Once I went on a prison run with them to the state prison. The roadster would be easy enough to search and I remember being the last one going in between the gates into the prison. Talk about a loss of freedom that sure was one in my mind. Once inside I looked up the cement walls where guards with binoculars and rifles looked down at us only to wonder what the hell I got myself into. Then we went into the court yard where the inmates waited for us. After a day of this when it comes to freedom I felt more free in that prison then I did outside of it. I mean the guards and the judicial system was responsible for everybody they put in prison, not the prisoners. My main point about this is we the people are more free then those using deceit and deception to control and manipulate us which is what we have for government. They are the ones who really have the fear because if they didn't they wouldn't want to control and manipulate us the way they do. So it's really up to us to realize that and take advantage of it!

Sheila you're in the mental health field and my wife witnessed patient abuse around 1977. We went through the worst kind of hell ever seen by people trying to cover the abuse up. It was government because the abuse would hurt funding. It was unions as one of the abusers was the president of the union plus where the investigation was going on was the police station which housed the unionized police. My wife used to tell me that they knew when to change the bed sheets for surprise inspections. Everything about government on all levels has been dysfunctional probably since the very beginning of our country and Obama wasn't even around then!

Point blank, we all are the problem buying into the fears our own minds muster up!  We the people enabled this to happen just like those you work with as patients had their dysfunctional behaviors enabled. While the concentration is placed on everything wrong there is absolutely no concentration placed on making what's wrong right! One thing I admired about the bikers was the young ones were bad news because they were trying to prove themselves. The older ones would let their behaviors go so far and then step in with, "Make It Right." I was like a liaison with the police and remember doing that with a biker who did go turn himself in after I told him that. Then he came and talked with me and told his side of the story. There was no division between us like there is with just bad mouthing somebody.

Our country needs to unite to "Make It Right" and just blaming others for what we all have to do ourselves isn't working!
