That study that these imbecilic liberals are referring to was about thirty years ago and involved 17 cherry-picked people in the survey. This is how hard up they are to come up with anything factual. Guns in the hands of private citizens have saved ten’s of thousands of lives, including my own. Like Thomas Hobbs, the great philosopher stated, “Man is “brutish” by nature” which alludes to the fact that there will always be bullies and people who by their very nature will try to cause harm to others, simply because they can. Perhaps a clue to this is in “The Wild West” in the 1800′s the first Colt pistol was called the “Peacemaker” and the second, “The Equalizer”. Prior to that, the biggest men ruled everybody.
Totally correct. That study had been used like a battering ram by the gun grabbing left for decades now.
I had the privilege to meet John Lott when he gave a lecture to my law school’s federalist society chapter. He is a well regarded academic who has done the definitive study on the effect of concealed carry permits on crime rates in a community. I’m sure nobody here would be the least suprised by the results showing a steep drop in crimes against the person.
The mere possibility that your victim may be carrying serves as an effective deterrent. Therefore even those who choose not to carry are benefited when a jurisdiction issues concealed carry permits

I think that a better use of tax payer money would be to have the Democrat representatives have the Constitution read to them, especially the Second Amendment as well as history of our country where-in that guns and ammunition have really never been the problem. The problem is that if you do not follow the laws and let a segment of the population disregard the law and disrespect the people who enforce the law,…that is the problem! Your gun control attempts all disregard the obvious that has been explained to you many times before. CRIMINALS DO NOT FOLLOW THE LAW AND THUS THEY WILL ALWAYS HAVE GUNS. No gun control law would have stopped any of these mass shootings. The guy in Sandy Hook killed his own mother for God’s sake. It doesn’t get any worse than that (other than the obvious) If a person is going to kill his Mother to get a firearm, exactly which law do you propose to stop that????

That is EXACTLY why the Founding Fathers came up with a Constitution that is the best most time tested document in the world. It is a minimalistic government with ONLY THE CONTROL NECESSARY to govern the people. It is only when our “Representatives” get carried away and write laws to cover every single or issue like they have that it becomes onerous and self serving. Right now, you have 2% of the total population (gays) forcing the other 98% to bow to their demands, which most people find offensive, which was preceded by 15% of the population, (blacks) trying to force their views of disrespect of authority and lawlessness, on the other 85% of the population, which find that unfair that they are not bound by the same laws that we are. We have also been forced by one person, the current president, who makes illegal laws or policies, that are only to be made by elected representatives. Now you have the Supreme Court getting ready to validate a sexual preference of 2% of the population, that if things were fair, 90% of the population would voice their dissent. This is an issue that should ONLY be validated by a national referendum, period!

Does this also apply to these black “protestors and the “New” “Black Panthers”, who burn and desecrate our American flag?

Now that I have wondered about since their silence is deafening. I think that they too are scared to death of these whackos.

He is dead anyway so how can you offend him. Besides, the winners of the contest were the chalk outlines of the terrorist bodies out in the parking lot.

There is nothing more lacking in intelligence than a Democrat lawmaker trying to sponsor a piece of gun control legislation. They start out by stating that an AR-15 round, eg: ARMALITE RIFLE – 15 round or 5.56 NATO round can be easily loaded into a pistol concealed and used to kill a police officer. Really? Would one of you dimwits care to show us how? It would be a hell of a pistol to hold a round that is about 2 1/4″ long, and you want to conceal it? Where? I can only imagine. You Democrat communist progressive types need to wake up. You cannot unring a bell. You can make your fantasy arguments on how you want to keep legal gun ownwers from killing police officers, sheriffs and the military, but nobody is buying it because we are them and we support them explicitly. We are the veterans, the “Oathkeepers”, and the former Law Enforcement, while every one of the Cop Killers in Ferguson and in New York and in Aurora, Sandy Hook, and every single other mass killing were liberals and progressives. Look it up. Sorry to burst your bubble. The only way that you will confiscate the weapons from private hands in this country will be to end the Constitution which by that act, any high school student will tell you will precipitate a state of war. If you keep shooting police, you better duck. Fair warning.

It is not too late to reverse this blatant disregard of our nations laws and the time to start is right now. Start attacking Obama with one lawsuit after another like the one right now on immigration. It is the only thing that he understands is force, period. The Constitution is the law of the land and since our law is based on precident, it is the ultimate precident. Liberals are fond of disregarding the Second Amendment but stand firm on the First Amendment. You cannot pick and choose. It is all or nothing.
I am with you 100%.
I get tired of the bitchon like I see on FrreRepublic and no friggin results!
Call me when any one gets a back bone.
I am so ready to shut these idiots up on both sides and bring US back to a CONSTITUTIONAL AMERICA that I can't stand to read the BS any more!
Lets roll PEOPLE!
Why not pass an immigration law and solve the problem? One problem, one law, one solution. Instead they do everything but legislate.

The people of the Unite States were given a golden opportunity with the formulation of the Tea Party Movement to have a second shot at reclaiming the perfect government that was handed to us by our forefathers. Too many believed the race mongers like Barack Obama who figured that we had him and his criminal actions in our sights, so he called it racist. The truth is, there is ABSOLUTELY nothing racist about it. I would not be in it if it was. It is not sponsored by the Koch Brothers or any other big corporation that I am aware of. We have had restaurants and other small businesses allow us to hold meetings in their auditoriums and meeting spaces, though. In return, we have been asked to patronize them, which we gladly do. Democrat liberals call us “White extremists” which is odd, as it is they who are trying to end our government and put in a “progressive new government based on skin color”, rather than merit. If people would just investigate and join with us they would find that we are just everyday people that want our government the way it was when everything was fair and we didn’t have to fear the government. Our government was respected by us and only taxed us when absolutely necessary, not everytime when some university professor could come up with a new idea to spend money on or to expand government. Our Tea Party Movement is a loosely run organization with no leader and we could use more peopl with more ideas to ad to our group. Please join us.

Ferguson will be the New Detroit. A lot of this would have never happened without the media dramatizing it. The Grand Jury system worked and the decision was exactly the way that it should have been, in spite of the media and racist hate mongers comments. How can anybody on earth with an IQ above 60 not understand and agree with that? Al Sharpton should be in jail for tax evasion.

I absolutely cannot believe the outright bigotry that CNN is demonstrating on a daily basis and they deserve to have their broadcast licenses (cable) pulled. At least they deserve to be sued out of existance. I would boycott every single sponsor that supports them as this is just beyond obscene. I cannot believe that a cable network could demonstrate that much hate. This hatred of Israel I believe is a result of peer pressure and is totally devoid of fact. If you take the time to actually research the original story, you will find out the true story of the partition between the Israelis and the Palastinians. The Palestinians. duplicitous as usual, were told that if they gave up their land, as in sold to Israelis, they would get all of it back after the Arab countries invaded Israel after partition and killed all of the Israelis. They were also told that this invasion would be easier if the Palestinians were out of the way so they wouldn’t get killed by accident. The point of this is, NOBODY TOOK THE PALESTINIAN’S LAND. They sold it thinking that they could steal it back from dead Israelis. So now they are playing the martyr game like they are the ones being taken advantage of. The facts are these: The Palestinians, no matter what they call themselves, have started every confrontation with Israel and have lost every single one. Israel has always demonstrated morality and fair play in every conflict. ISRAEL HAS THE RIGHT OF SELF DEFENSE EVEN AGAINST STUPIDITY.
Then you need to tackle George Soros- literally. He's the poison that helped Nazis round up Jews (said it himself in an interview) and has said he's been working for years to undermine the American currency and to plunge America into bankruptcy and into third world status (once again, his words). This is the guy that apparently owns news companies and dictates what and how they air news.

I sincerely think that we should file a massive class action lawsuit against these media companies for their failure of not being truthful but their deliberate actions to decieve the American public. To not do this is to condone their behavior. Look how much their actions cost us.
 September 12, 2014 at 1:52pm
This hwole thing is out of control and I fault the media for even legitimizing their racial comments. With the evidence that I have seen, the officer was justified. It is a shame to see someone get killed but if you play adult games you pay adult prices. The good people of Ferguson should leave and be re-imbursed for their lost property and a fence put around what is left. They could rename the town “Little Detroit” because that is where it is headed. If people riot like these fools say, it will not go well for them.

There is nothing radical about the Tea Party and I am tired of these losers blaming us for their failures to subvert this country. We believe in the Constitution of the United States of America. We have NEVER killed anybody, threatened anybody or done anything illegal, period. Our crime is that we have stuck up for the United States and the fairness that it was founded on. We have been called racist and yet there is not a single bit of proof. Put up or shut up! We desire a limited size government. We have never ever said that we want to eliminate government or anything like that. The Democrat Party is afraid of us as we want to end corruption in government and make sure that each person votes only once. The Democrat Party tells lie after lie and Baracj Hussein Obama even said that we were racist because we oppose him. I do not care what color he is, it flat does not matter. We oppose his policies and his nanny state policies. The government is not a substitute for parents.
 August 7, 2014 at 4:47pm
Unfortunately if somebody sues you for anything, no matter how outlandish, you lose, EXCEPT IN TEXAS because uou have to hire a lawyer to defend against it and you lose, even if you win. In Texas, loser pays all to end this liberal trial lawyer crap, plus we have tort reform. Just where is this heathen organization located? Another way to look at it is “Karma is a bitch!” and THAT always applies.

The thing is that almost every Democrat fought the Civil Rights Act of 1964 tooth and nail as they were mostly segregationists. If it wasn’t for the Republican Party it would have never happened, and then what? Also the KKK which was formed and is a quasi part of the Democrat Party was originally formed as a Democrat militia to kill Republicans years after the Civil War because they always helped the blacks. The blacks were added shortly thereafter. After all of this history, I am shocked that any self-respecting black person would vote Democrat. President Lyndon B. Johnson, as he was signing the Civil Rights Legislation remarked that “I feel that I am committing political suicide by signing this into law.” Now Rand Paul is a Libertarian and if you get down to it, having the government make any business sell to a specific group or do anything against their will is wrong. Actually the proper way to make a business do something like selling to blacks at a lunch counter, for example, would be to harness public opinion not to go there. But that is in a perfect world. To brand him a bigot or a racist is dead wrong because he is not. This race card issue is getting really old and it demostrates the goals of the Democrat Party as, the first recorded use of the term “racism” was by Leon Trotsky in 1923. He was the father of “Communism” and the term was used to denigrate any group opposed to communism and it was used as a weapon just as they use it today.
Most people forget that the left progressives function on their feelings which seldom have anything to do with facts or logic. That is why you can't argue with them because what you are doing is trying to change their feelings. What they do is try to change the facts to fit their feelings and that is why it is so exasperating to deal with them. Cher doesn't want to know the truth. It does not comport with what she wants to believe. That is why she is an actress, she can be what ever she wants.

This guy is a real piece of work and he is Democrat Presidential material if I ever saw one based on who they ran last time. Morality and truth do not seem to be a requirement in todays’ Democrat Party. IT DID NOT USED TO BE THAT WAY! What on earth happenned? Now they are Pro-Abortion and election at any cost.
Read the 45 goals of the Communist Agenda..... you'll swiftly see EXACTLY what happened...
Goal #15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
The Democrat Party has fallen and the Republican Party is not that far behind if the communist can just get the people to vote the Patriots out of office.
America..... you are being systematically overthrown from within. Open your eyes and see it..

With my own eyes I saw seven individuals change out of their “Acorn” t-shirts and take these signs out of the trunk of their car at the Tea Party Tax day rally in 2009 in Sugar Land, Texas. As soon as they walked into the cowd and showed their racist type signs, I advised a number of others and we escorted them out of the area and politely asked them to leave, or else. “Acorn” and the Service Employees International Union are one in the same and they make no qualms about their affiliation with the Communist Party of America. This is how they incited people to refer to the Tea Party as “racist”. I wish the truth would come out on all of this.
