Now Using A Gun For Protection Is ‘An Alarming Trend’

Now Using A Gun For Protection Is ‘An Alarming Trend’
SCREENSHOT

For an idiot news reader on a Detroit television station, people using guns to defend themselves from marauders is the beginning of “an alarming trend.”

According to WXYZ Action News, twice in a week, armed teenage robbers have been shot by their intended victims, who were licensed to carry a concealed weapon. But this is a bad thing, according to anchor Stephen Clark, who opens the newscast with, “Could a couple of recent shootings in Detroit be the start of an alarming trend?”

In the first instance, an assistant coach walking two girls out of Martin Luther King Jr. Senior High School was confronted by two teenagers who put something against his chest. The coach, a reserve police officer, shot them both. One died.

A week later, two teenagers tried to rob two utility workers. One of the workers was also legally carrying a firearm. He shot both boys, sending them to hospital.

Only in a land of progressives and statists can people protecting themselves from criminals be “the start of an alarming trend.”

    I wonder what this moron would do if he came under attack by some thug and he knew that there was an armed person nearby who could help protect him but refused. He’d scream to high heaven that the person refused to defend him.

    • juneboy

      How would they know that you are not a thug also when you pull your gun .That is the cause they are fighting for gun control. Also why do you need an assult weapon.Are you going on an assult mission.

      • Kane

        @juneboy,
        OK…back into your parent’s basement troll. Report in to obama headquarters and tell them what a good little troll you’ve been today and maybe they’ll send you a new qbamaphone.
        Jerk.

      • Mike88

        Anytime you Need to use a gun to protect yourself from assailants you are on an assault mission. so to answer your question Yes, you are on an assault mission to escape being harmed by the assailants.

        • daisysue

          To say I am on an “Assault Mission” is to say/indicate that I with out intentionally searching for someone to Assault…That is incorrect…I am Prepared To Protect Myself from Predators who are on the streets looking for someone to Rob, Rape or Assault…

      • JustSayin…….

        Hey JuneBOY……You would be the first to cry loudest if you were ever under will of thugs. You may not need an assault weapon for one intruder, but as we all know thugs are cowards, & they run in packs…..can you juneBOY handle a pack of thugs with your wit, or would you rather have a weapon that can take out more than one thug at a time?

      • rendarsmith

        Out of curiosity, what is the difference between an “assault weapon” and a “defence weapon”? How is the government going to distguish between the two?

      • daisysue

        Assault Weapon ??? Congratulations !! your stupidity out shines the commentator…

      • Richard

        First off… Everyone does not Need an Assault rifle…but the AR15 in its civilian variety IS NOT An ASSAULT RIFLE ! it is a Semi-Aitomatic rifle no different than a “Ruger 10/22″ 22 caliber rifle in function.
        Second…If you are a law abiding, Tax paying Free citizen of the United States Of America being of sound mind and good moral character. you have Every right to shoot off a couple hundren rounds of 223/556 ammo (if you can afford and locate some) at paper targets or any other safe target you choose especially on your own property if thats what makes you Happy!… you remember the bill of rights…Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness !!!!! that may not be your thing and thats OK…Nobody is forcing you to like to shoot guns or build an AR rifle or the smell of cosmoline on a new CNC machined finely crafted firearm…But don’t try to impose your views of morality on others. Find whatever makes You Happy (so long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else) and pursue that with all the passion in your heart.

      • Bob Reynolds

        “juneboy”: It appears that you have not completed a formal education as your grammer, sentence composition and spelling leave a lot to be desired. Perhaps, your response is just a perfervid reaction to an issue that requires a moment or two of rational thought. A responsible person (you also appear to be challenged in that comport as well) would and should “go on an assault mission” if they fear being assaulted. “The alarming trend” is that liberals (I assume you are one) actually believe that utopia exist and evil never has. “juneboy”, in addition, if you are 18 years of age or older you should no longer believe in fairy tales.

      • http://www.facebook.com/duwayne.bryant DuWayne Bryant

        most anyone with any common sense can apply that form of reason within seconds, and know the one who stood on point to shield the defenseless, the children, and those like you who hide behind the children, yeah, its pretty easy to spot the thug and the termites, that cause the decay, within our society

      • Bob Z

        Stupid AND stoned….now there’s an alarming trend.

      • Gary L

        Hey boy, this has nothing to do with assault weapons. Idiot.

      • old sarge

        Libratard the constution and all of the Militia laws were set up so that in a national emergency all able bodied males could called for defence of the country so without the scary black guns you do not have a viable deterant.

      • Nadzieja Batki

        juneboy, are you capable of thinking before you compose your comment?

      • Carl C

        Juneboy – The word is deterrent, when the word gets out that the potential victim might be able to defend themselves, the perpetrator will have second thoughts on whatever crime they were going to do.

      • Peabody1911

        I guess punk ass gang bangers shooting up Detroit police stations doesn’t alarm anybody living in Detroit. If the “victim” protecting himself in Detroit shows up in court, he’ll likely have the likes of the libtards here on his jury. Maybe it’s time to leave Detroit to the gang bangers.

        @rendarsmith – the government calls fully automatic rifles with 30 round mags defense weapons. And the government is buying them up as fast as they can get them with billions of rounds of hollow point ammo.

        @GLB – our Founding Fathers thought self-defense was legitimate. In order to defend oneself, one would have to be able to apply as much force to counter the effort of an aggressor. As a matter of fact. the Founding Fathers thought that the militia (the people excluding government emplyees) owning warships would even be a good idea.

        @eddie47d – angry? You bet! I grew up in the 50s and this country had already began its slide away from the Rule of Law and it’s getting a whole lot worse today.

        Our leaders take an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Based on what they do and say, the evidence is clear that they have no idea what the Constitution nor what the Bill of Rights nor what the Declaration of independence says. The Federalist Papers provides the intent of the Founders when they wrote those documents.

        Federal law is NOT the law of the land. The Supreme Court was never granted the authority to interpret any of those documents for the people. They have. And look where it has taken us.

      • charlie

        Juneyboy, says ‘How would they know that you are not a thug also when you pull your gun.’
        FIRST – learn to punctuate – THEN talk.
        NOW, who are the “they”? (? – see what I mean?). If “they are already there to protect you – you would not have to draw your weapon. If “they” are not there, your weapon comes in handy.
        Juneyboy, you follow the idiot talking head; the rest of us will use our God given good sense, and our ‘Inalienable Rights’.

      • Steve E

        Hey juneboy, your liberal thinking is “the start of an alarming trend.”

      • http://www.facebook.com/chris.thomas.5895 Chris Thomas

        @Mike88: You need a refresher course in English. Sorry. You’re on an “assault mission” to escape being harmed by assailants? This makes absolutely no sense; except maybe in war where you have two assailing parties. Considering that I am not purposefully going out and seeking potential assailants, it would be incorrect to say that I was on an “assault mission.” If someone enters my home, uninvited, that person is an assailant. I, on the other hand, am defending my life, my family and my property. Know the difference.

      • securityman

        juneboy,are you one of the thugs that are out to rob, rape and steal what other people work for? sounds like it to me. a little word of warning, don’t try and take what I have worked for because, if you do, we won’t have to hear any more of your b.s……..

      • USN retired

        Alarming tren!d!!!! Where is this idiot from? We are finally fighting back against our criminl offspring. Chicago is a good place to start with the trend spreading across the country like wildfire. Our founders insured that we have a way to regain our country from internal enemies. Our president must realize he has released a plague on this country that must be stopped. His gun control efforts are means of feeding the plague and patriots are showing him that we have a cure.

      • Wil

        Rendarsmith-The liberals, apparently, consider an ‘assault weapon’ to be any weapon in the hands of anyone that might disagree with their agendas. I’m sure,if they could, they would pass laws exclusively prohibiting Conservatives and especially Christians from owning any weapons, much like Hitler did with the Jews.

      • johnny

        Listen closely,the cops ran in katrina and the L.A. riots The 30 round mags are just for such unexpected times as well as to fight a police state.Why do you want to cede all firepower to Government?Govts.have killed tens of millions of civilians in the last 100 years.

      • drooper

        Your are so right juneboy, I personally would feel so much safer if only thugs, criminals, and crooks had guns. That way we could be sure it was a bad guy who was sbout to murder us.

      • vicki

        rendarsmith says:
        “Out of curiosity, what is the difference between an “assault weapon” and a “defence weapon”? How is the government going to distguish between the two?”

        The same way responsible adults distinguish between them. By use.

      • vicki

        Richard says:
        “Everyone does not Need an Assault rifle…”

        Until they do. If they do not already have one then it is a wee bit late (This was true even before the Brady Bill)

      • vicki

        Mike88 says:
        “Anytime you Need to use a gun to protect yourself from assailants you are on an assault mission. so to answer your question Yes, you are on an assault mission to escape being harmed by the assailants.”

        Though I know your intent (by what you said) is pro-defense you would be better served to point out that choosing to not be a victim is NOT equal to planning an assault.

      Kane,

      You nailed juneboy good. Too funny! But aren’t you the least bit embarrassed? It was too easy. lol

      • Mikey

        Hey juneboy you need “personnel defense weapons” for L.A. And Katrina

    • eddie47d

      This news caster didn’t say whether this “trend’ was good or bad so why blame this person reporting the news? I think someone else is manipulating the news. Hmmm! He could have been saying that the perps are getting bolder and are acting in an alarming manner.

      • John Allen

        Did “News” puppet say how many unarmed people were robbed in same period? How many victams have been shot or injured by robbers- that never seems to make the “News”

      • jdn

        How on this screwed up planet could the perps in DETROIT be more bolder , more murderous or let alone start an alarming trend ? I usually take opposing arguements with all due respect but please could you use the slightest bit of logic and common sense with your replies ?

      • Howard C

        Hooray!! eddieBS is here to put in his irrational, leftist, ‘everything is relative’ garbage.

      • ibcamn

        Eddie,he made the comment of the bad guys getting shot by ccl Americans,and that the ALARMING TREND was just that!come on eddie,don’t be a douche today!is juneboy your son or daughter or whatever a juneboy is!??

      • vicki

        And in the news article around the newscast (As linked in the OP) we have this:
        ———————————-
        7 Action News talks with workers in Detroit about the dangers they face. They call it the new “Street Justice.”

        However, law enforcement would not encourage this and may not approve it. The case of the coach is still pending in the prosecutor’s office.

      • Ridge Runner

        When confronted by the truth yell and scream.
        He said “It’s an alarming trend” all the excuse a Liberal needs to promote more gun control. I understand well the meanings inferred while Liberals deny the truth. Just more added to justify negating the second amendment. The founding Fathers well understood the People should control the Government not the other way around. Amazing how History is loaded with Liberal Dictators yet apparently you would welcome the likes of Stalin or Hitler with open armes or for that matter, King George.

      • eddie47d

        Stop it Vicki Stop it ! Why do you buy all this dishonesty over and over!. Its like the article last week about guarding stores with semi-automatic weapons and the insane response in spraying bullets everywhere. Your repetitive dangerous and exploitive minds are the real criminal element. Keep piling up the bodies if it pleases you and keep forging your own headlines even though BL’s wasn’t mentioned in the real news story.

    • Dave

      The robbers should have been sent to the morgue. Why doesn’t this news reporter publish his address so the robbers don’t get shot? I’m sure he isn’t armed.

    • BR549

      Yet another panty-wetting liberal from the media. Most likely a Democrat, which ironically, is what most assailants claimed to be when they last voted.

      Maybe the message for us all is that Democrats are not to be trusted with guns or voting. Maybe we should include “Political Affiliation” on the 4473 Form and when they check “Democrat”, they get denied because of being anti-American and just plain STUPID.

    • ibcamn

      he would sue the man who refused to help and make sure the thief that was going to hurt him was ok and unharmed from the person carrying a weapon,or some f*#ked up thing like that!

  • jdn

    This is nothing new , there are always those that will condemn anyone who refuses to be the victim and God help those who would come to anothers aid . Stay tuned for the rants that will prove my point .

    • Louis Klar

      These fools believe that being a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself. Go figure!

      My 8-year-old daughter was a tiny, delicate-looking little thing. She was waiting at the bus stop one morning when a hulking 14-year old bully came up and started harrassing her, making lewd comments, and finally, grabbed at her. A few swift moves, and he was running off, wailing for his Mama, clutching his broken nose. She had been a star pupil of her Tae Kwon Do class since she was 5 years old. I guess you could call her an “assualt weapon’, too.

      • S.C.Murf

        Hey eddie, did you just wake up so you can put your’e 2 cents worth of anti 2nd amendment BS in . What do you think the guy was implying.

      Just from the original story, I can identify some criminals that will have Zero Recidivism!

  • Ann Anderson

    I agree with innocent people protecting themselves with guns legally obtained!! Maybe those teeenagers will think twice before they dare to pull a gun on someone! It is never a mistake to protect yourself from harm!!

    • The GLB

      Would it matter if one protected oneself with a gun that was NOT ‘legally’ obtained?

      Please stop using, “legally obtained”, as some type of mantra to give self-defense with a weapon some legitimacy.

      • MikeW

        You said:
        “Would it matter if one protected oneself with a gun that was NOT ‘legally’ obtained?

        Please stop using, ‘legally obtained’, as some type of mantra to give self-defense with a weapon some legitimacy.”

        So, you are saying that self-defense has no legitimacy, or are you saying that using a weapon in self-defense has no legitimacy? Either way is pure insanity!

        To claim that we have no “legitimate” right to defend ourselves (with or without weapons)against criminals who threaten us with physical harm if we don’t comply with their demands is Liberalism run completely off the extreme end of the track!

  • Robert Lebischak

    Lets see here, there are people that are trying to harm you, take your money, rape you, do personal damage to you, and you defend yourself, that is a bad trend, why the ones trying to harm you could be out of a job if people protected themselves, it would harm the economy if that happened.

  • Robert

    Only a liberal moron would worry about the use of a gun to protect one’s life, family,friends. An “alarming trend” to protect yourself against a criminal assault. Unbelievable

    • eddie47d

      Same question to you Robert. Where does this newscaster say these citizens didn’t have a right to defend themselves? If a newscaster says a community is faced with teenage Meth usage and says its an “alarming trend” wouldn’t you agree? If 10 of the 20 houses on your block are facing foreclosure wouldn’t that be an “alarming trend” that affects the whole neighborhood. Wouldn’t it be an “alarming trend” if utility workers are robbed or maybe a school official such as in this story? Nothing in Clarks newscast says the “alarming trend” is that CC permit holders can’t carry or use their weapon for self defense. I would say the “alarming trend” is that those doing the assaulting are getting bolder in their actions.

      • Gary L

        Eddie, I think we all know what you are trying to say. It’s just that as usual, most of us here do not agree with your nonsense.

      • Gary L

        Surely, shootings in Detroit are nothing new.
        The news anchor finds it alarming that the intended victims shot their attackers.

        • Jay

          And then there was the guy who went to the doctor and found out he had cancer and 6 months to live. So he moved to Detroit to make it seem longer.

    perhaps the “ALARM” should be addressed to the thug criminals that law adiding citizens will no longer stand idly by and allow themselves to be victimized, terrorized, robbed of their hard earned possessions…or our civil liberties to be trampled! We Will Fight Back…and We Will Take by force if necessary our Freedom to walk openly in our own neighborhods and streets and defend and protect our children and loved ones against All Enemies… Foreign And Domestic !!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jwhaynessr Jack Haynes

    An old sheriff wrote long ago about a gun “Be not afraid of any man, no matter what his size. When danger threatens, call on me and I will equalize”. Enough said. If they riot in the street, let them. If the riot gets on your property, use a gun to stop it.

  • daisysue

    It is one to defend your point of view. However his comment was not even in the realm of reality..

    • daisysue

      Excuse me, I left out a word..Meant to say It is one THING to defend to defend your point of view..

  • Ridge Runner

    It’s obvious the Liberal left learned nothing from prohibition! Criminals will be well supplied by organized crime while law abiding citizens will be in total fear for their lives and property. Want an example, just look at Chicago,with strict anti gun laws and out of control crime and shootings.
    Those who would follow the law, will follow the law and those who don’t never will.
    During prohibition there was Rum running and if the clueless Liberals have their way there will be organized Gun Running.
    Of course the “rather have a Dictator left” will point out how well the last 30 years have delt with drug smuggling. Apparently knowing what’s best for everyone is synonymous with knowing nothing. Take away the Guns and you take away Liberty, worked for Hitler!

      That is why they sound so stupid…..they have let go the professional writers so that they can pay that anchor his salary.
      Its how things are done today.
      Get rid of the real professionals and get college interns to do it.
      So when something you hear on the news sounds stupid…its because the editor is too busy to proof read what the intern wrote.
      The anchor may know that the writing is deficient,but likes his salary,so he just reads it anyhow.
      Read between the lines and listen to what is not being said…..then you will know the truth.

        I enjoyed your comments cawmun (cc) …. now that the lines have mostly been drawn it is important to disseminate further than the headlines, talking points, and media dialogue.

        I really believe there is alot of meta-information and hidden in plain sight discoveries that will help us understand and unravel the lies.

  • Ricardo Garza

    When someone hits someone else its called assault. When someone attacks someone else with a weapon its called assault with a deadly weapon (knife,bottle, 2×4,book etc.) So, what I’m getting at here is anything can be an assault weapon if its used to strike with or shoot with. A .22 cal. pistol is an assault weapon. Liberals got to get over this. It is plain as the eye can see, they want all your guns. More children have been killed by the hands of their own parents or guardians, drownings, car accidents, fires, and miscellaneous acts then guns ever did. The only way people can defend themselves is with guns. We are only a free nation because we have them. Take them away and watch what happens. Remember its not the gun that kills, its the person. I have never a time seen when a gun jumped out of a safe and crawled up to someone and loaded, pointed itself to somebody and pulled its own trigger while aiming and killed someone. Show me that one. If the Government gets rid of its guns my friends will get rid of theirs. Let me know when that happens.

      Ummm.. Not exactly. The BEST way people can defend themselves (in situations as described in the OP) is with guns.

      - Ricardo Garza: “We are only a free nation because we have them.”

      You have an odd definition of “free”. In this nation you have to get a permit to exercize a constitutional right. You have to get permission to go on an airplane. You have to be inspected (as would cattle or criminals) to actually get on that plane. You have to get permission to build things on your own property. You have to get permission to move your private property on the kings highways.

      And that’s just some examples.

      - Ricardo Garza: “Remember its not the gun that kills, its the person. I have never a time seen when a gun jumped out of a safe and crawled up to someone and loaded, pointed itself to somebody and pulled its own trigger while aiming and killed someone.”

      We have actual video of someone trying to get their gun to jump up and shoot or even just shoot. Jumping might be a little much to ask from an inanimate object :)

  • Billie W. Jacobs

    Believe it or not; there are people on the left who believe that you do not have a inherent right to defend yourself with deadly force and if, in doing so, you injure or kill the perpetrator then you are guilty of a major felony and should be tried as such!!! This is tantamount to saying that the assailant was within his/her rights to demand from you whatever he/she desires!!! Recently, there were high ranking members of the Obama regime who have declared their belief that conservativism is a mental illness/disorder!! I say, in light of such declarations, that, perhaps, they should go look in the mirror and discover the truth!!!!!

    • eddie47d

      Why would you boo hoo over someone saying that “conservatism is a mental disorder” when that gets said about liberals right here all the time. The problem is you want to lay it on thick but can’t take it when it comes back to you! Now there is some truth. Every shooting has be be judged on its own merits and I still haven’t seen anything in THIS story that says you don’t have a right to defend yourself. Even in killing your assailant for that seems to something made up by you all.

      Read “Journalistic Fraud” by Kohen … a remarkable insight into how the “newspaper of record” (NYT) moved editorials to front page headlines.

        Love the cartoon clip. So true. I remember as a kid, sitting on the airplane and seeing men with six shooters or 1911s. They weren’t checked. Back then, we all had to wear a jacket and tie to fly: if you didn’t wear a coat and tie, you took the bus or the train. That was on the turbo-prop Lockheed Constellations and such. By the time the 707s had come into vogue, a lot more people were flying for less, they dressed like slobs, and it only got worse from there.

  • http://yahoo RL

    Maybe it’s only my observation, but this attitude that a lot of people have of ‘ everything for the children’ has come back to bite in the butt. Many crimes are done by teenagers, who have been allowed to be disrespectful, disruptive and often times violent without fear of consequences. Law enforcement, even when the perps are caught and processed into the system, often received probation or light sentences because of their age (under 21). In my opinion, ANY person, regardless of age, that commits a crime, e.g. b&e, robbery, murder, rape, and gets shot by the victim, deserved it. People have a right to protect themselves and their property, whether it be by gun, knife, or whatever means is available to them at that moment. What I don’t like is the authorities punishing the victim by arresting and incarcerating them. They determine this by ‘what a reasonable and prudent person would do in the same situation’. That’s crap. There is not one individual that would react exactly the same in any given situation, let alone be reasonable and prudent in the event of being faced with a crime upon your person or property. Too bad the perps got shot, but when you know right from wrong, and choose to do wrong, well…..the results could be deadly.

        That’s because the ORIGINAL purpose of the NRA was to address the appalling accuracy of the Civil War troops on both sides (about 1 kill per 1,000 rounds shot). The 2nd Amendment wasn’t really the issue back then, at least not for the NRA.

        While I’m a member of the NRA, they’ve gotten far too “political” and that ‘s why I joined the GOA, which I think is far more on track with the 2nd Amendment.

    a majority of the time it boils down to kill or be killed. what is to stop the criminal element from killing the victim. they make the killings at the school over exaggerated. one person did it even though it was sickening. now obunhole along with the royal decider of our gun rights is after the whole population to clamp down on all possession of the masses. instead o endangering the masses why don’t thy work on penalties in the crimes where the guns are used to discourage people from committing the crimes they are trying to stop the wrong was. it would make quite a few more people wiser. seems most of these people that commit the crimes are mental cases who aren’t getting proper cart. reagans attempted assinnation was commited by one. the one at fort hood had mental problems the arizona killer had problems, the movie theater killer had mental problems. the hell of it is the mother of the kid kid who shot the school up attempted to get help was turned down or there was none. she died at the hand of her deranged kid. government killed mental health care. they let the doctors fix it with chemical drugs that don’t work. now all citizens are supposed to pay. if her royal majesty senator fienstiene gets her way the body count will explode because of the ones who are getting shot by innocent citizens will be the only ones with guns. fienstien is one of those elite bitches who thinks every bit of the population must be under control. sorta nwo. these people need voted out so not just them have control of the country. trouble is most voters are ignorant and keep these type in power.

    The ONLY alarming trend I saw in that story was the trend of youth gangs to arm themselves before trying to rob someone. Used to be a club or a knife was more than enough arms for them to get what they wanted, now they NEED guns to do the same thing. Shame someone didn’t teach them a bit better before they got tied up with a gang, but then, could be they grew up where it was either be a gangbanger or be dead. Still, the alarming trend is for armed kids to be robbing people, not those same kids being shot because they tried to rob or abuse the wrong people.

    I spent almost two years in ‘Nam ( from the age of 19 to just past my 21st birthday) then left the infantry. I then spent the next eight years as an MP. I never failed to be amazed at how people who had never had to physically defend either their own lives or that of someone else could honestly voice a profound opinion of the right or wrong of another persons actions. That is a long, convoluted way of saying that they’re full of crap in 99% of their opinions. Any time you pull a weapon on someone you automaticlly give them the right to defend themselves to the best of their ability. As more and more people receive concealed carry permits, the more punks like these will become an endangered speices.

    There is not enough police officers out there to protect the population from these criminals, due to the budget cuts in most cities. What does this news caster expect the people to do, let these criminals kill their victims. Are you serious, this news caster needs to wake up & really think about what he said. CPL have the legal right to carry a gun, they have the constitutional right to live without fear that someone will kill them. If they do not defend themselves then there maybe an increase in victim deaths.

  • Alan

    But then again Johnny, why would attempted armed robberies be an “alarming trend”? They happen rather frequently, don’t they? For something to be alarming it needs to be original, something sudden and unexpected such as a sharp increase in temperature. No, there was no misunderstanding that I can see. He meant that good, honest citizens were somehow trending toward gunning down threatening criminals without hesitation, which is precisely the way it should be.

    We’ve all heard “the Myth” from Obama, Feinstein, the progressive MSM and the leftist anti-gun grabbers that “74 percent of NRA Members Support a Ban on Assault Weapons.”

    You’ve likely heard it reported several dozen times across news media outlets. Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, claims responsibility for conducting this Frank Luntz poll that claims 74 percent of NRA Members support a ban on so-called assault weapons. Then President Obama mentioned this stat in his address in which he presented 23 executive orders on gun control.

    The Real Poll: If there is any group that has its finger on the pulse of NRA members, it’s the NRA. After all, its membership rosters are private. To combat the Bloomberg nonsense, NRA, via a professional third-party polling company, recently conducted its own scientific poll of its members.

    Findings are as follows:

    • 91 percent of NRA members support laws keeping firearms away from the mentally ill.
    • 92 percent of NRA members oppose gun confiscation via mandatory buy-back laws.
    • 89 percent oppose banning semi-automatic firearms, often mistakenly called “assault rifles”.
    • 93 percent oppose a law requiring gun owners to register with the federal government.
    • 92 percent oppose a new federal law banning the sale of firearms between private citizens

    That’s right. Bloomberg, Obama and the majority of the leftist media are off by 63 percentage points. Fact is, 89 percent of NRA members oppose banning assault rifles.

    The Anti-BS Quote:
    “Mayor Bloomberg’s claims that gun owners are divided are totally false. It is nothing more than an attempt by anti-gun activists to further their long-standing political agenda,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris Cox. “American gun owners and Second Amendment supporters are ready for Washington to put politics aside and come together to fix our broken mental health system.”

        Actually, it does. I could consider that you might have even voted non-Democrat, while having liberal views, and if so, this might not apply to you. I consider myself very liberal when it comes to taking care of veterans, the elderly, and giving those less fortunate a chance, but I expect people to get off their butts and work for something other than a free lunch and to have enough sense to tie their GD knees together if that’s what it takes. This Obama-phone crap, free cars, a green light for illegals, and EBT cards are just empowering a class of useless porch-monkeys, illegals, and white trash.

        The difference here, as many people seem to see it, is the “conservative” adherence to the Constitution, which Obama, Hillary, Pelosi, and that whole pack of political retards that can’t seem to remember the oath they took, seem to have forgotten all about. If you support THAT, and are still supporting Obama, then no one here can help you.

        Actually BR549 I have voted for non Democrat candidates and am myself a registered independent. As for Obama I do not support everything he does but I did vote for him and still feel he is a competent president. I support the constitution and I oppose giving money to people who do not need it. But all of this is mute. Because the fact remains my political views do not carry over to my personal views about whether or not someone should be allowed to shoot a gun in self defense. I am a liberal and I believe people have a right to defend themselves. As such we can deduce that at least one liberal does not consider it a crime or a threat to have someone defend themselves. Therefore it logically follows that if a liberal can think that than liberalism is not a determining factor in ones personal views.

          I understand your viewpoint, although I cannot fathom your loyalty. I voted for Obama in ’08 and even admit to having had goosebumps on election night thinking that this guy might actually be able to do something. But I should have followed my initial hunch when I realized that he was the ONLY candidate (the one who come from out of the dark) who refused to get pinned down by the press on his stance on NAFTA; the ONLY one. All the other dutiful globalist minion candidates hung themselves with flimsy explanations that any intelligent person could see were excuses about our manufacturing base had been demolished.

          I had voted for Perot the decade before and understood what he was driving at and saw what the ravages of the Bush family had done to this country. Up until 1988, I had been a consistent Republican, and did vote for Papa Bush in 1988, but I realized something was terribly wrong and went Independent. Been there ever since.

          I appreciate your having taken the time to explain your position, and I’ll try to lay off my sarcasm in answering any posts you might put forth, but I would strongly suggest you research Agenda21, ICLEI, and the whole globalist plan for intentionally eviscerating the US economy, of which Obama is so much a part of that plan. As one author put it, and it took me many years for it to sink in, “NO president gets into office without the official blessing of David Rockefeller.”

          Here’s a list of poignant quotes to keep you reminded of the task at hand and what we are all up against:
          http://willowtown.com/promo/quotes.htm#.TypmVTJorcg.gmail

          Author Holly Sklar, who writes articles for The Nation and such, had stated that the globalists’ intent was to remove any and all forms of ethnic, nationalistic, and religious identification so that the loyalties of all the people would be forced toward the state.

          Somewhere in the evolution of the species, I could see a one world government, but it would be through a gradual and willing evolution, not something being rammed down everyone’s throat. The difference is like that between two newlyweds versus a female victim and a rapist. The same event takes place, but the energy around it remains forever.

          Obama, I was sorry to learn, is a flaming globalist. And except for a couple blips along the way since Eisenhower and Kennedy, they have ALL been under Rockefeller’s wing, even Carter, whom I very much admired at the time. That was how a lowly, go-nowhere peanut farmer made it to the White House; because Rockefeller loved his willingness to accept globalism, even if the people around the world were not yet ready to accept it.

          People have said to me, “Well, if we’re all heading towards a one world government anyway, why not just accept it right now?” The answer is that it was never earned. Like the newlyweds vs. the rapist, mankind has not yet proven that its present politicians and rulers have the social and spiritual maturity to take on those positions without abusing them, and until they learn what it takes to actually BE in a ruling position without falling victim to their own egos and representing the people instead of themselves, globalism will, out of evolutionary necessity, be a long way off. Ask anyone at Bilderberg to step down to allow that to happen and watch what happens.

          That’s why I couldn’t vote for Obama for a second time, because he is an integral part in the globalist plan.

    I am 85 years of age and have carried for well over 70 years and have proof with newspaper articles that I personally have stopped 4 hold ups of service stations and markets, stopped 1 murder by a angry boyfriend who was of all things stabbing his girlfriend with a AWL sort of a ice large pick< she was seriously injured with 2 holes in her heart so I am sure that he would have finished the job given maybe a couple more strikes.
    That alone is well worth my inconvenience and responsibility of carrying, no this is not a NEW TREND but an old fashion way of taking responsibility of your life,
    Yes I still carry and compete with the same weapon that I have carried about all the time and it is a quite old 44/40.

    This is a first hand look at Obama and his cronies handy-work! They specifically said they were moving towards getting the news agencies behind supporting the ban on guns!!! What better way than this to put a bad light on shooting ANYBODY!!!

    I say….this is the best way to get those bent on being a criminal off the streets and in the closet….where they belong!!!

    Seriously???? People successfully defending themselves is “an alarming trend”? [personal attack has been removed]

    An encouraging trend! If more people shot the punks, the streets would be a lot safer!

    This is why law abiding people need to own guns!

    Not surprised from the lame stream media in Detroit that doesn’t report the facts about Detroit but tries to sugar coat it. Same media that ignores the corruption (i.e., Kilpatrick, Kilpatrick, Conyers, Bing, etc.etc.).

    In case none of you have noticed we have heard not one word of robbery, rape or looting during Sandy, with the electricty out and people using candles. Do news people really think the American people are this stupid,; Ya, we know the Goverment and politions control what is released, and they call it free press, BS;
    A family member was in the Ike hurricane which did not have power for three weeks after he returned. One night about three a.m. the front door was kicked in and he grabbed his pistol and crawled into the L hall, and said ” who is there and what do you want” ” we came to kill you and take your stuff”, they shot at least three shots at him, and he opened fire. One went down and the other ran, He carefully walked over kicked the gun out of the guy hand and checked his pulse, he was dead. He called 911 and they came and he met them at the door with his hands on his head, thinking his future just went down the drain. He told the police what happened and they called forenscis and homicide. Suddenly they noticed he was bleeding in the area of the rib.
    one of the bullets had richocked and was setting in the flesh on top of the rib. The paramedics removed it and bandaged it. It was declared self defense. it is unknown if they ever found the other guy, they know he was hit, cause the outline of his body was there in blood. My family member would be dead if not fo owning a gun. The crooks do not obey the law now, if you have been in prison your not suppose to own a weapon,and how many for their second or third offense, have a weapon in their possessiion. Let the crooks have the weapons and keep them away from the citizens who do back ground check, go to firing ranges and shoot, and take gun safety courses. I think we should send Hillary, Biden, Obama, Feinstein and few others to south side of El Paso, or San Antonio with out their security and see how long they would last. But it is ok for Joe blow citizen. Not in this life time.

    The Obama lemmings pushing gun restrictions and ultimately the demise of the 2nd amendment have obviously never paid attention to the Principle of Unintended Consequences. Given that these hypocrites get their way, crimes against people will certainly increase considering the millions of instances where firearms prevented crimes without the benefit of media coverage. Since our courts have ruled that law enforcement has no responsibility for individual protection……..just who is going to fill the gap until the police show up (doesn’t apply in Chicago where they won’t anyway)?
