A Woman’s Place in the Firearms Industry

In 2nd Amendment, Articles, Concealed Carry, Conservatism, Firearms Industry, Firearms Reviews by Staff Writer0 Comments

Are you as sick of hearing about women’s right as I am? I’m a strong believer of no matter who you are, if you want it, go out and get it, and don’t stop until you achieve it. It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman. There is only a ceiling if you believe there to be one. There are no boundaries that women can’t break down in the professional world. Am I going to get flack for saying this? Probably. Do I care? Not one bit.

Was Michelle Manhart Wrong To Protect The Flag?

Michelle Manhart Protects US Flag

Michelle Manhart has become the darling of patriotism for her defense of the flag at Valdosta State University, but is she really? As an Air Force veteran, one would think she would understand the 1st amendment freedom of expression. You see the Supreme Court has ruled that flag desecration is protected free speech. Of course, the Supreme Court has also ruled that SOME pornography is protected free speech, so as a former Playboy model, Michelle Manhart should be well aware of the concept. Freedom of speech and expression are rights and freedoms that we all share whether we agree with the views expressed or the form that the free expression takes.

Tim McGraw: An Anti-Gun Liberal With A Conservative Audience

In Articles, Conservatism, Current Events by Staff Writer0 Comments

Three days ago Breitbart News reported that country singers Tim McGraw and Billy Currington would be headlining a gun control fundraiser for Sandy Hook Promise on July 17. The backlash from their fans was considerable when it was reported that concert beneficiary Sandy Hook Promise “is a vehicle through which various relatives of Sandy Hook victims have joined to push gun control until it passes.”

What Is Constitutional Carry?

2nd Amendment Poster

Back in the day, all the pro-gun buzz surrounded states passing “Right To Carry” or concealed carry legislation, but the conversation recently has taken a decidedly different turn. Now that all 50 states have some concealed carry laws that allow citizens to carry in public, some obviously better than others, the conversation has shifted from the “right to carry” to the “FREEDOM to carry” also referred to as Constitutional Carry. So, What is Constitutional Carry? Surprisingly most people haven’t got a clue what it is and the name is rather misleading, so let’s take a closer look.

We’re Right, They’re Wrong… PERIOD!

In Conservatism by Staff Writer0 Comments

When some arrogant progressive like Bob Beckel says something asinine like “Explain to me why the republicans are sticking up for millionaires?” WHY, WHY, WHY doesn’t someone, anyone, have balls enough to say; “BECAUSE WE DON’T PUNISH SUCCESS, F’TARD!”  Instead, they usually say something equally ignorant and whiny like “Oh Bob, We don’t!” Or they start babbling off some ridiculous string of complicated statistics.  This isn’t rocket science, people.  We’re right, they’re wrong… PERIOD.

 We believe in freedom and personal achievement; they want choice limited to what is fair so nobody is allowed to fail and learn from their mistakes.  We promote personal initiative; they get a bully mob to try and force slackers to the top.  We live by the sovereignty of the states governed by The Constitution, they want to do away with that and be governed by a foreign global power.  We have stuck by our principles. We haven’t changed since the day the Declaration of Independence was signed.  We are REPUBLICans, for the Republic; where the individual’s rights are protected from the whims of the mob.  They are for democracy, obsessed with the majority rule, where the whims of the bully mob trample the rights of the individual.

 If you are like me, you may see the state our country is in and recognize we are in decline. You have a firm belief that we are going in the wrong direction, the more left we turn away from our origins that Founded our country. Perhaps you feel so badly about the situation our government is in that you can’t see any daylight and believe we are witnessing the final years of our great nation, and it will soon end in calamity. I can’t argue any of that, and in fact I agree strongly enough that I write a fiction series based on it that I pray won’t become an example of life imitating art.


 Some things should be obvious to you, that you should have the right to earn an income and provide for your family the way you want, and keep them safe from threats of criminal aggression. That taking the means of defense away is an act of tyranny. That the government does not have any lawful authority to take these Rights from you.
Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these: First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature. ~Samuel Adams

Gun Control: The Real War on Women

In Conservatism by Staff Writer0 Comments

Apparently, the gun control advocates, Moms Demand Action, Bloomberg, and Gabby Giffords’ husband, and all their progeny, are tired of the emotional manipulation of saying, “Think of the children!” Their new strategy is telling us, “Think of the women!”

Read the statements, dripping with hypocritical misinformation, now being slathered into the mouths of mainstream media about how “preventing gun violence” (aka, GUN CONTROL) is necessary to protect women. It portrays the image that domestic violence is not only implemented by guns, but probably caused by the evil mind-bending influence of guns. (Some off them think violent abusers would probably have been sweet and kind had they never bought that evil pistol.) Oh, if only we had “sensible” gun laws, women would be protected from abuse!

They utterly ignore the fact that the law and law enforcement have almost no way to protect people from violent domestic abusers or stalkers and that a having a gun, with the training to use it, is the best possible protection a woman could have. Attackers can inflict their violence no matter what the gun laws; whether the abusers use other implements of violence, or get illegal guns. The silver lining in this latest chapter of their assault on our rights is that it shines a clear light on a hidden truth of their gun control. That it is, in many aspects, hideously anti-woman.

Stop the hate – Educate!

Stop The Hate. Educate

As an outspoken advocate for liberty and Constitutionally protected rights, the 2nd Amendment in particular, I hear all the anti-gun/gun control arguments on a daily basis. It is sad that most of the arguments against guns and gun rights are easily rebutted, but are seldom heard. Those driven to ban guns, restrict ownership or impose the infamous “common sense regulations” are driven by two basic things, fear and hate.

The fear that drives many opponents to gun rights is born of ignorance. Let me stop here and define “ignorance” so that people don’t misread this as a slur. Ignorance is a lack of knowledge or information. Those who do not have any first-hand knowledge regarding firearms tend to fear them. When you couple that lack of knowledge with the smorgasbord of MIS-information that permeates the media, it is no wonder that people fear firearms. Unfortunately, that fear often turns to hate and that is when things get ugly. Law-abiding gun owners are routinely demonized, simply because they own a product/tool that is both completely legal to own and specifically protected under the Bill Of Rights of the Constitution. Those facts are lost on people consumed by fear and hate.

Moral Equivalence: Propaganda tool of the shallow and weak-minded.

In Conservatism by Staff Writer0 Comments

Really? Have we really become this shallow and superficial?Moral Equivalence: a term used in political debate, usually to criticize any denial that a moral hierarchy can be assessed of two sides in a conflict, or in the actions or tactics of two sides.

 

I saw this posted on another page and the implied moral equivalence disgusted me. The implication is that there is no difference between these two women,

  • A: An armed American free citizen willing to DEFEND life, liberty and even the religious freedom for those religions different than their own…; and
  • B: A religious extremists willing to KILL in order to establish the dominance of their religion and to subjugate the masses under its religious law.
 

To some, far too many I’m afraid, there is no difference that they can see. All they see is what is on the surface; a Gun, a Flag and a Religion. However, to anyone with working brain cells capable of more substantial critical thinking, the two could not be more different, even diametrically opposed. The shallow, asinine question “Is this how we want to be seen?” illustrates the very superficiality they operate under. Their entire thought process never ventures beyond what it “looks” like or how it makes them “feel”.

Did You Know: The Gun Debate Isn’t Even About Guns?

In Conservatism by Staff Writer0 Comments

The Gun DebateI often ask myself, why do we call it a gun debate in America? Gun Rights, Gun Control, Gun Culture, Gun Violence… The whole conversation isn’t even about guns. Guns are merely the shiny distraction that everyone focuses on, while the real debate boils just under the surface. When you take the word GUN out of it, you start to see the REAL debate; Rights, Control, Culture, Violence…

When people say “gun rights”, what they really mean is HUMAN rights. I have the natural human right to LIVE, to protect and preserve my life and the responsibility to protect the rights of those around me. When people say “gun control”, what they really mean is PEOPLE control. They want to control who is armed and with what level of self-protection. They want the power. When we speak of the “gun culture”, what we are really talking about is the AMERICAN culture. Despite the make up of our citizenry, mutts from around the world, America DOES have it’s own distinct and unique culture and values. Dennis Prager sums it up quite eloquently in his American Trinity which I highly recommend you watch. That brings us to “gun violence”, which really refers to the breakdown of our society as a whole.
