    fward1208 – Thanks for your reply and quoting:
    “But an Assembly of our denomination has spoken, and now we must move ahead without compromising compassion or conviction.”

    I was about to give a reply stating very nearly exactly as you stated yours.

    Here is one other item to consider:
    Jindal has just vetoed a bill that was an attempt to have Louisiana follow the crowd on the “Real ID” issue. Remember? The Feds are attempting to require EVERYONE boarding a plane to have a federally recognized driver’s license or other form of federally recognized ID.
    I approve his veto for the following reason:

    Real ID needed to board a plane? OK, then the next “needed”; a “Real ID” to cross a state line using any federal, state or parish/county highway, road or path.

    What is to stop this next step? What a wonderful way to corral the population. Am I against the “Real ID” program? Yes.

    I read no comments anywhere on that very real extension of “power”.

    patriotlaw777 – Add Louisiana to your list. Louisiana allows “open carry” w/o a permit if you desire or, according to the LA State Police, a person may obtain a concealed handgun permit if you want to carry your handgun concealed. Oh, and by the way, local ordnances may not supersede state law.

    Here is a link that describes what happens when a group of returning WWII vets confronted a group of crooked politicians and LEOs who had taken over their County government. Check it out: http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/athens.htm

    This has never been discussed in any “government” school – even “way back when” American History was actually taught.

    The following was cut from my earlier post but needed as a “finish” to the reasoning:

    In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.

    In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.

    In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.

    In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.

    In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school.

    As recently as Sept 2013, an angry Democrat shot 12 at a Navy ship yard.

    One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not. Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.

    No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives were involved.

    SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.

  • February 7, 2014 at 8:14am

    In 1863 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.

    In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States who later died from the wound.

    In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.

    In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.

    In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

    In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.

    In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.

    In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.

    In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria.

    In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.

    In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.

    In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.

    In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.

    Then said he unto them, “But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his cloak, and buy one.”
    Luke 22:36

    Pretty stern commandment from a “Prince of Peace” don’t you think?

    “Proud Stray Dog” – you raise an excellent point. BUT everyone needs to be further reminded:

    “And they said, Lord, Behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, “It is enough.”
    —Luke 22:38, KJV

    NOTE: During this time that part of the world was under Roman Law. It was ILLEGAL for anyone not a Roman Citizen to be armed – WITH ANY TYPE WEAPON. The Disciples were not Roman Citizens. It is obvious that Jesus approved being armed for self defense – and having the weapon concealed.

    In fact, the Bible makes the assumption that men and women will defend themselves against someone intent on harming them. (It’s interesting that only in our “enlightened” times do intellectuals start questioning the idea that people have a perfect and natural right to defend themselves.)

    Very true about the “Barnes Bullet” – I’ve used the “Barnes” as my primary carry ammo for several years.

  • January 27, 2014 at 9:07pm

    Also check out http://www.barnesbullets.com for an excellent choice in a proven solid copper hollow point. They make ONLY the bullet and sell to such as “carbon” and others. These are EXPENSIVE at about $50.00 for a box of 20 – but, you are only purchasing one or two boxes for personal protection, not a case of them. These are NOT practice rounds. Barnes has produced these for a number of years and can back up their claims. No, I am not a paid [or unpaid] rep for the company. However, I do have 18 years experience as a registered Louisiana Certified Instructor as part of my background.

    PS: One reason the military has used [does use] the ‘hard ball’ or FMJ ammo is to possibly wound [or 'take out'] more than one enemy combatant with a single round by having the full penetration of the FMJ hitting more than one person

    Rides by LEO vehicles may vary by city/county[parish] and/or state – and the officer’s willingness to “take a chance” helping someone. I recently had an ignition lock/key failure at a local “Lowe’s” outlet, walked to a nearby service station for assistance. A Sheriff’s unit was at a gas pump so I asked him if he could get/give me a ride back to my office. He was in route to some other location, call in his change in route. He then asked if I was armed [yes] and asked to hold my weapon on the front seat and that I should ride in the back seat. [Never asked to see my CCW permit.] He delivered me to the front door of my office building, returned my weapon and wished me a good day.

    Needless to say, I gratefully thanked him and wish him a fine day.

    ZQ – I disagree for this reason. Phil wants to bring Christian ideas, beliefs and thoughts to those who would not otherwise hear/see any of his message. If he was on a “Christian” channel [program] and said exactly the same thing no one would have heard his comments or had an opportunity to read/hear/see the support the Robertson’s are getting – and the why they are getting the support.

    [Continued from a previous posting]:

    If memory from my High School History Classes at Baton Rouge High [1952] is accurate; what is now called the “Lame Duck Session” originated during the time of the Constitutional Convention. The purpose of the delay between voting, elections declared, swearing in to office and the opening of the new Congressional Session was to allow the time necessary for communications and travel of that time period. Obviously times have changed. Communications and travel have, shall we say, “improved” and I contend that “Lame Duck” sessions are not necessary and under certain circumstances may in fact be dangerous.

    When an election is OVER the newly elected officials should move in and take over. Let’s have a month “recess” to make the change. If the politician can’t do it in four weeks after running for the office for [insert time], maybe he/she is not ready for the office! The losing party [or politician] has LOST and should have no more say so over anything. They no longer represent the people. Lame Duck? More like LAME BRAIN!

    The lame duck “season” needs to come to a halt.

    wesinLR; Lame Duck: Think about this:

    Here is something that has been in my “craw” for a long time – and NOBODY talks about it. Perhaps you can start a movement – if you agree. [If you don’t, please explain.]

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I have never understood WHY we as voters have put up with the concept of a “lame duck” politician or legislative body.

    There should be no such thing as a “lame duck” session in Congress or any State Body. Why do we put up with a window [system] that gives a group of losing politicians [of EITHER party] the power to ram any unpopular legislative agenda though and make it law of the land? This is nuts.

    This is an “extreme” example but: “What if” those who lost get together during a Lame Duck session and declare the past election illegal – pass the law and get it signed? I think you get my point.

    The right to own a firearm is not “God Given” it is “Man Given”. Men wrote the Constitution, not the hand of God. Ignorance like this is the fodder the left uses to make the firearm lobby look stupid.

    This Bible passage deals with murder, not self-defense and it is a grave mistake to interpret is as prohibiting self-defense. Thus the commandment is simply “Thou shalt not MURDER.”

    Probably the most misinterpreted passage of the Bible when it comes to persons defending themselves (or countries waging war or capital punishment) is the commandment:

    “Thou shalt not kill.” — Exodus 20:13 KJV

    Unfortunately, what many so-called religious authorities fail to tell when arguing against self-defense by quoting this bit of scripture is that there are several words in the Hebrew language which express the verb “kill.”

    The Hebrew word used in this commandment ALWAYS means “murder” and ONLY in what would now be called a “pre-meditated” murder at that.

    Unfortunately, the word “kill” has changed since the time of King James when the first major translation of the Bible into English was carried out. The “kill” would more properly be translated as “murder” as far as modern English usage is concerned and, in fact, many modern translations of the Bible generally use “murder” in this passage. Check it out in a modern language translation of the Bible or–better yet–with someone who knows Hebrew.
