Laws that prohibit firearms do nothing to prevent nor deter crime. The facts speak for themselves, regardless of what the fear mongers preach. Disarming the People is necessary for complete control. Every tyranny passed ever more restrictive laws until outright confiscation was implemented.
With the passage of unconstitutional laws in the Constitution State, Connecticut has proven my point: confiscation is eminent and unless We the People rise up, all of our freedoms are lost.
The Esteemed Readers of Fix America are well aware of how we reached this point in America's demise. Starting with Lincoln's martial law which has never really been dismissed, and moving through to the NDRP and executive orders that can only be followed by usurpers of the Constitution, we are at that fork in the road and must choose the path we will follow.
It is always easier to say, 'Que sera, sera!' And just go along. That is what the good people of Germany did as National Socialism festered in their nation. History demonstrates the results in these so-called 'revolutions' against well established governments. Our own founders described this concern in the Declaration of Independence, as they further listed the oppression and usurpation of Common Law and the restrictions placed on natural rights.
The right to keep and bear arms was assumed to be part of the natural rights, those being life, liberty and property. The fear that a government would at some point attempt to disarm the People, prior to oppressing them, it was insisted to be placed as an enumerated right which governments were forbidden to legislate against.
By highlighting certain crimes in the media, the policy pushers of big and powerful government control instill fear in the public, and use that fear to press for regulations that will prohibit certain types of 'criminals' from having all of their rights. Such is the federal law that prohibits a person charged and convicted of a felony crime from ever owning a firearm. That is unconstitutional, plain and simple.
Control control advocates will ask, "Do you want ex-cons having guns?" to which I say, "Those who want them will get them, regardless of the law." That is why they were convicted in the first place! "But when they get caught with a gun, they get stiffer sentences." To which I say, "If the crime they committed was such that the sentence paid restitution to the victim, instead of allowing the convict to live on taxpayer resources, maybe they would not be repeat offenders!"
Law needs to provide justice. Laws that create criminals from law-abiding people are not just laws. They are created by planning and planting fear in the reporting of crimes, school shootings, mall shootings, now military base shootings. If more people carried weapons there would be less of this, not more.
For many years, I never carried so much as a pocket knife and now I carry a weapon always. I respect a property's wishes when posted 'No firearms', and I find another place to spend my money and time when I do. I imagine that most of the loudest advocates for gun laws are the ones who need not have a weapon. Their display of fear and paranoia is good reason not to own or bear firearms.
For the rest of us We the People will decide NOT the government!

Will Christians pretend to be upset that I use such symbolism on their holiest days, as atheists pretend to be whenever they come across a religious display in a public building? Personally, I don't care either way. People will choose how they behave based on their own morals and ethics, regarding of their beliefs of non-beliefs. Besides, Al Sharpton will get more air time than I will, because I never can imagine myself uttering such nonsense. And he has a national television audience?
My relationship with the Creator is personal and private. I do not care to share my relationship with others, nor do I want them to share theirs with me unless requested. On the other hand, you have every right to practice your religion and display it publicly, so long as it does not require infringement on the liberties of others.
In the united States of America, the constitutional federal representative form of governance provided that establishment of a religion by legislation was prohibited. It also made sure that the free exercise of one's faith was not to be infringed. By that it means that displaying of one or more religious symbols is perfectly okay, so long as no one is given preferential treatment. Even if a majority of people feel that a particular religious symbol is ugly, they have no right to prohibit its display.
It is no coincidence that the Christian Easter and the Hebrew Passover often happen around the same dates. The Last Supper is the First Seder of Passover. Jesus last meal with his Disciples and the meal Moses ate with his family as the Angel of Death passed over the houses with door posts stained with the blood of lamb. Commonalities often bring people together. And maybe that is all that is required to save this nation from certain death.
What is happening at the Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada is symbolic of People coming together in common cause. This cause has been brewing for a long time, and it is not about cattle or tortoises. It's about liberty. Yours and mine.

I have not been compelled to write anything about the recent Clark County Nevada cattle grazing rights dispute between the Cliven Bundy Ranch and various federal agencies that have in effect, taken over much of Bunkerville and designated 'First Amendment Zone' by which they really mean the rights of the First Amendment are suspended in any area they don't declare as the First Amendment Zone.
At first it seemed that it was about nonpayment of lease fees. Then it seemed to be a dispute about limitations on grazing due to environmental protections mandated by (BLM?) By now it seems more about the U.S. Bureau of Land Management using force on an American rancher to push forth the plans for a concentrated solar power plant to be erected by ENN of China.
That is not only an infringement of rights of the individual, but it is being done at gunpoint and by individuals who may be contract mercenaries that are foreign nationals. In other words, these people have no regards for US law nor respect for your rights whatsoever. These people are here for one reason: To take your guns, your rights, your property, and the penalty for noncompliance is death.
The videos that are being shown on the Internet regarding confrontations between these hired goons and the good People of Clark County coming to the aid of one of their own, clearly show the complete disregard of anything and anyone who challenges their 'mission.'
While the fed seem to have backed down for the moment, real intelligence sources indicate they are planning a fill scale attack on the Bundys, probably like Ruby Ridge or Waco. Only this time its about tortoises and cattle. And may I interest you in purchasing a very nice bridge?
There are many distracting stories in the privately-owned major media so the Bundy issue is not being given too much coverage if at all. To many as it is being played in the media, this is just some stubborn cowboy that refused to pay his bills. It's being glossed over in favor of Lois Lerner, Oscar Pretorius, and other issues of far less importance in how it will directly affect the lives of all Americans.
Senate Majority Leader and liar, Harry Reid and his son Rory are certainly living up to their ancestry. Both have heavy ties to what is transpiring in Nevada, as their appears to be financial gain and once again, use of federal agencies for personal if not political profit. Hard to say which is worse, but then what difference since both are being used to destroy our liberty and economy.
They said this was about lease fees and that the cattle were going to be confiscated and taken to auction to pay $300,000 or $1,500,0000 depending on which cow chip you choose to swallow. That flew out the window when it was evident that no livestock auction would accept the cattle with Bundy's brand from anyone but Bundy. So 130 are alleged to have been slaughtered by the thugs contracted to round them up for the BLM.
They were well prepared to slaughter the Bundys and anyone else who stood between them and their 'mission.' Is this really about cows and tortoises? Really?
It seems to me that the laws, mandates, and regulations that would deprive the People from earning an honest living as their family has been doing since the 1800's are laws that are against the very principles of the nation's founding.
There is only one thing that causes me to focus on the Bundy issue: LIBERTY!
