As a retire Marine all I have to say is every Marine is a rifleman. I don’t know about the Army but, I would trust any Marine with any gun.

I like you am tired of the Feds but, more especially our elected officials. But, if you are waiting for someone to award metals I’m afraid you are in for a long wait. Even yelling Alha Acbar or whatever it is that these idiots yell did not justify the last one as an act of terror. Although I’m sure that’s what it was. This President is one of these pigs he’s not giving anyone a metal for being a Hero except the terrorist.

I have trained as both a military police officer on a military installation and as a police officer in civilian life. Now this was some years ago but, common since has not changed. 1. Make sure the person you are interacting with has A GUN. 2. Even if they point the gun in your direction actively evaluate the situation and make sure the person has either the mental capacity to use the gun or is mentally incompetent. Sounds strange but, both will cause you to react differently. 3. Protect others first, the person with the gun second and you third.
But, today law enforcement personnel are taught shoot first and make excuses later. A life is never easy to take when you take a life you can never give it back.
First, Glenn Beck is always talking about more talk everyone’s opinion counts so tell people to ignore Mr. O is just wrong on the Blaze.
Second. I really don’t care about living and if by my death people start taking action so be it, but, no one is telling me I have to leave my home no matter what the situation. They may suggest but, I will not comply to demands on my property. I won’t register or license my firearms or Ammo. And I damm sure not giving them up to anyone And as far as the police ordering me to do anything, anytime, anywhere because they want my car or my home, it ain’t happening. I will not comply. Ask and I my allow but, I will not comply.
So what if some one steals your car, or burns your house down, or kidnaps a family member, or vandalizes your property, or mugs you, or steals your identity, or burglarizes your home, or your town suffers a majour catastrophe? You alone with your weapons will not survive. A gun will not help with identity theft, one of the biggest crimes going. Family member is kidnapped, you would not have the resources like the FBI. Their are good cops as there are bad cops. All agencies will have some darkness in them, because they are populated by humans. The difficult task as citizens is to make sure we strike a balance of power with OUR agencies, which are run by other citizens. We need police, firemen, reservists, soldiers etc to remain a free society, but that balance is tricky. You are no help because you are an isolationist, antagonist and a grumpy person.

For years I have been telling people to stand up and fight, I have begged people to join me in standing up to our government and no one stood up. Every day the rich and powerful take away our rights to protect their power. forcing us to wear set belts, charging taxes on cigarettes for education and then spend the money on everything but, education, then making it illegal to smoke virtually anywhere except dark corners, and there are a thousand other rights the government has infringed on. Just today I read of the gun registration in Conn. I will not register my guns or give them up. We swore to defend this country from all enemies from without or within. We have an enemy within greater than any outside. This government is essentially bringing in outside troops as illegal aliens and amnesty. Do I support the overthrow of our current form of government? No. but, when the leaders become to rich and powerful to care about the people, the people need to replace them. Elections will not work because only the rich and powerful can afford and pass the rules to run for elections. As I have said before, If we continue to elect our officials by the content of their purse rather than the content of their character we deserve what we get.

You can give whatever reason you want for the high suicide rate. Type of combat, family problems, whatever but, everyone egnors the real problem. The heartless and pathetic care that Veterans get at the Veterans Administration and espically the Veterans Hospitals. Yea, you walk in and they say how thankful they are that you served. Then they tell you that your problems are all in your head imagined or not and here’s a pill. When you disagree with them there is no recorse except to talk to a patient represenative who send someone an e-mail then never contacts you back. And when you press the issue they tell you that’s V.A. policy and there’s nothing they can do about it, because it what they are told to do by Congress. You call your Congressman and he tells you that he can do nothing because that’s the V.A. policy. They’er all worthless. Evferyone talks about how proud they are of Veterans and have parades and speaches. But, no-one really gives a DAMM. Veterans commit suicide because the hell they have to go throught after they fight a war some politician started and then doesn’t have the guts to fight. The Veterans Administration doesn’t even have to comply with the persons with disabilities Act. Veterans can’t sue for malpractice or breach of contract and even if they could no lawyer will take the case because of the laws governing their fee’s that Congress put in plaec to “Protect the Veterans” The way this country treats Veterans is pathetic.

The Boston booming is just the begining. The lockdown of the city and the search of the homes was a show of force and a test to see if the people would resist. The needless shootout when the police captured the second suspect was a deminstration of the force they are willing to use. The law enforcement agencies had no warrent to search the individual homes. They wanted everyone to know that they could without warrents. The shoot out at the boat was unwarrented. Several news agencies have reported that the suspect was unarmed. Yet the boat is riddled with bullet holes. Why. Because someone had an inchy finger? If he was infact unarmed who fired the first shoot.
There will be another event. Probally more than one. During which one will the perpetrator’s again escape and another city will get locked down. Then the house to house searches start and one individual actually stands up for his or her rights and refusses to allow the law enforcement agency to enter and stands to defend their rights. It’s going to happen. Some innocent home owner is going to refuse to allow the law in without cause and they will shoot to defend their right. Then what? Maybe nothing, maybe something. If nothing what about the next event,
There will be a tipping point then the powder will blow and it starts. That is why DHS is stockpiling ammounition and that is why the government is testing the limits. Who is going to be the first to stand and defend and set off the powder. It’s human nature.

After reading post on this issue I think no one has made the point, that OK Red Riding Hood, Dodge Ball and other things are banded form schools because of their Violent, Adult Content or whatever reason. OK Moms Guns are banned from schools also. In fact you can’t even talk about guns in my grandkids local schools. So who is the idiot who gave these kids a gun to hold at what is obviously a school.

Useing her logic three rounds for a 10 pound duck. An armed intruder, trying to kill you weights in at 180 pounds. 180 divided by three equals 60 rounds. Yep she’s right two thirty rounds magazines for a human is about right.
All these e-mails appear to be polictically correct. I have a lot of friends here in middle Tennessee and almost, if not all of them say that their primary reason for having a semi-auto rifle is for self defence. However, their second reason is not hunting or target shooting. The second reason they own AR’s and thousands of rounds of ammunition is that they fear the direction the country is going and the actions of the government. Let’s be real people Americans are scared of their elected officals and what they will do to stay in power. Yes we elected them. But, we elected what we thought were the best out of what we were offered. Given the options I believe most if not all the people are disgusted with the politicians in office today. Best of evils.

Simple petition the court to have the 1968 case expunched. The court has to provide a reason to deny the petition if no other crime has been commited in the last twenty five years.

Comming to a state near you! Everyone has to take notice these communist are not just in New York. Even Texas almost went blue last year.These liberal, control freeks are everywhere and they are taking over the big cities changing them and the state they are in one by one. We are the silent majority and until we stand up they will get their way. Voter fraud, big money and yes, you are supporting them. Yes you, when you pay $800.00 or more for a phone and then as much a month for service or sign a two year contract costing $100.00 or more a month for T.V. you are supporting them. You getwhat you pay for!

We give up our rights every day and no-body does anything but, talk. Somking bands, Sugar bands, Containers bands, Seat belts laws, and too many more to mention. What is wrong with giving up one more right if no-one is willing to fight back with anything more than words. We declaired our independence from England with a Declaration of Independance and backed with courage and the point of a gun. Now liberials want to take our guns. If I learned my history right it was the declaration of the King of England to confiscate the firearms of the colonies’ that triggered the first revolution of this country. I have asked Talk show host ( Glenn Beck and Micheal Deljorno (Nashvile, TN.) among a few to tell me at what point do we stop talking and take back our country. I have never received and answer. Just more talk. So I ask you when is the time for talk over and the time for action at hand. I’m too disabled to do much more than talk anymore but, where is the next George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and our other founders that looked England and the King in the eye and said no more. Obama is acting like a king and his pawns are falling in line. Our elected officals are afraid of him and of not being re-elected. We need elected officals that are elected for the content of their character and not the content of their pockets.

Mr. Beck, I lesson to your radio show every day on Dish TV. My wife and I follow you daily. I agree with you on most issues not all. Which you would say that if I agreed with everything you’d say I’d be insane. Just to make a point. One thing I disagree with you on is how much you and other people talk up helping Veterans. I’m sorry I don’t see it. As an 80% service connected Veteran for 30 years I can tell you this country and most if not all veterans organizations grossly fail veterans. Everything I get at the Veterans Hospital in Nashville I have to beg for. I have asked for help form all the Veterans organizations I can find unsucessfully. Wounded Warriors told me they only help Veterans from the gulf war until present. All the other DAV, VFW, American Legieon only help with Disability claims. Not even Congressman Bob Corker can force the Veterans Medical Center to treat Veterans if they don’t want to. Bob Corker’s Office really doesn’t even try. All the Veterans Medical Center here does is perscribe pills if they fell like it. I would say my treatment at the V.A. amount to malpractice, but, they don’t have to repond. Our Government, the press and yes the citizens of this country only want to hear about the good things about the V.A. What makes them feel good. I feel abandoned and disguarded by my country after 8 and a half years of service. I wish people would open their eyes and quit talking about how great the V.A. medical treatment is. I can back up my claims
I would try other facilities in a different State. Some States differ to the needs of Vets.

There are one issue not being talked about right now concerning gun control. Gun Control by price gouging. In the few weeks after Sandy Hook tragaity prices have sky rocketed. Nt because it cost more but because of fear. Fear Obama will take away our rights to own whatever concerning guns. In three weeks 30 round AR magaines and othe high cap mags have went from $9.97 to $99.97 online and at gun shows. I saw used mags going for $60.00 at a gun show this weekend, and they are out of stock everywhere. Ammo has trippled in price and so have the guns that use them. Did they suddenly jump im cost to make. No, it’s price gouging plain and simple. Gun Control by price gouging. Has no one else noticed it.
It's called supply and demand idiot--your gripe, in a hilarious twist of irony, is against heterodox economics, and it's principle CAUSE is conspiratorial reactionaries (like you) who rush to buy all the guns and ammunition of the shelves they can get their hands on every time there's a mass shooting for fear that the government might, gasp, actually DO something. But you needn't worry on THAT front--remember this is America, and our politics are expressly DESIGNED not to work.

When are you people going to learn. You can not prosicute a criminal for a crime when the criminal is in charge of the court. So long as we let politicans make laws that alow them to be above the law no law can touch them. I mean we give the president the ability to forgive the people that serve under him of criminal activity how stupid is that. We even let him serve in office without proving he is legally holding that position in order to be policitically correct. Obama should not even be in office he isn’t a natural born citizen or at least he can’t resonablly prove it.

I have proved one thing to everyone I know. The powers that be want the price of fuel to rise. They want the U.S. and other countries dependent on ferigon oil. And most of all they don’t want to drill for oil in the U.S. for any reason. Why? The powers that be want the rest of the world to use up their oil supplies up to the point where the price is outragious. Then when the U.S. starts drilling we they can charge any price they want. Problem is that it is all going to blow up in their face. They believe the world will be civil about it. Their wrong and when it happens the blood will run in the streets of the U.S.

Evidently you don’t follow events very well, if you do your reserch you would find that the O’Bama administration is trying to do considerable damage to the 2nd Admendment and our gun rights. Case in point is the nagociations of Hillery Clinton with the U.N. on a world wide gun ban. And, yes it amounts to a total gun ban. Or Eric Holder and the ATF banning import and sales of Koren War M1′s and the attempted ban of so called assault shotguns, and their asseseries. And lets not forget fast and ferious.
But, lets also consider this. Does anyone in this country believe that if armed americans marched on Washington or any city, and demanded that the president, congress, and the senate step down and be replaced by newly elected officals. That, that same government would not gun those deminstrators down in the street if they refused, you are kidding yourself. We have tyarants in government now and we put them there and they are not going to give it up.

I know the government is monitering this and really don’t care. Police go in the force thinking just like Tea Party politicians, I’m going to make a defferance. Then it’s go along with the croud. Then it’s they’re all out there to get me, to finally I better than them and I’m going to do what I want despite their rights. Absolute power crupts Absolutly, The only way we are going to protect our rights is to take this country back by force. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, so the rich can get richer and we let them in fact we help them. Take ATT and Verizon. They charge 300 percent of the cost of their product and we keep buying it. $500.00 to $1000.00 for a phone, come on people. Plus $200.00 for service. If you want your country back you must stop supporting Corperate Theft. We believe our country is doing everything to help our Veterans. It’s a Lie. I have been 100 percent service connected diabled for 20 plus years. And I have to beg for everything I get from the V.A. Our Government is out of control. Our Celebs are out of control. Wounded Worrior program is a scam to get people rich not help Veterans, Their call center is in Asia and India for gods sake. Pay attention people. When Vets get out of the Military they go into the V.A. system and they are at the mercy of the system and their is no one out there to fight for Vets when they get into the system. What good is a benifit check if I’m dead in a few years. V.A. medical Center Policy Kill a Vet cut the
