A Gift From The People To John Boehner

On the eve of the election for Speaker of the House one can only hope that the GOP has the fortitude to shake off the conditioning that the establishment seems to have saddled them with and do the right thing. Let’s hope the GOP has the courage to use the sentiment of A.F Branco’s illustration from Comically Incorrect and find someone BETTER for America than John Boehner.  |  |  |  | \/ You can see who I think should be the next speaker of the house here: Replace Boehner with someone who will fight for America   Related articles BREAKING: Popular Congressman Announces He’s Challenging Boehner Establishment Circles the Wagons to Defend John Boehner Uh-oh: John Boehner is in HUGE...

Barack Obama’s Gun Control Record Revealed

Somehow, there are people who confess they are gun owners, who keep saying that Barack Obama is no threat to the Second Amendment.  They actually go so far as to say that he has strengthened the Second Amendment during his first term. Short post today, first, as I have discussed before, he HAD to accept the Amendment to the Credit Card Reform bill that allowed carrying of firearms in National Parks.  He had the chance to allow guns in parks on its own and he refused.  That means HE WAS AGAINST THE BILL. Then there are his Supreme Court Judges, specifically Sotomayor who lied to congress about her belief in the Second Amendment only to rule against its definition of an individual right the first time it came up. Now, lets look at a quick rundown of where the President really stands on the issues: Renews support for gun control through...

Sanford, FL knee-jerks guns out of the hands of volunteers

When political knee jerk reaction meets the void where common sense has been sucked out you apparently get Sanford Florida. In the city where Neighborhood Watch member George Zimmerman saved his own life by stopping a man who was beating him to death, Sanford will release new parameters at a community meeting on November 5, stating explicitly that residents acting under the “authority” of the neighborhood watch may not carry a firearm or pursue someone they deem suspicious. I can understand the second part of this directive.  Members of the neighborhood watch may not be trained in surveillance and their pursuit might put them in a dangerous position, such as when George Zimmerman was attacked and almost murdered by the suspicious person he was following who doubled back and tried to beat him to death. The problem with Sanford’s new guidelines is that you are now mandating that people put...

A modern take on Molon Labe

Welcome to Bullets First.  This is my blog that was started during my time as the Director of Media Relations with Gun Owners of America and continues now that I have branched out on my own. I have transferred my old postings as well as the followers list to this new site and I hope you enjoy it as much as you had my old blog.  I have also founded a new facebook page and twitter account that you may like to peruse.  They are still early and not much has been done as of yet.  This site as well as the others are a little rough but will be improving and streamlining soon, but enough about logistics.   As you can see by the title, Bullets First is the modern take on a philosophy held thousands of years ago by a group of Spartans who faced a tyrant...

Gun control gets cut down by Occam’s Razor

In the current debate concerning guns in America, I am always astounded by the twisting of facts, logic and reason that the gun control zealots put forth in order to defend their case.  By all sense and logic, gun control cannot be viewed as anything other than a means to oppress a free people and to disarm the law abiding. When looking at the pro-rights argument against the pro-control argument one needs to cut through the hyperbole and sensationalism with Occam’s razor. Occam’s razor, for those of you who don’t know, is a term used in logic and problem solving.  Plainly put, Occam’s razor is the process in which, when you have two competing theories, the one that makes the least amount of assumptions is most likely the correct one.  By using the “razor” to cut away the most assumptions you are left with the correct answer. To apply...

Revolution era Assault Weapons

We are hearing a lot of talk from those who seek to control the American people and limit their liberty, questioning why anyone would need a so called “assault weapon”.  While it is humorously ironic when British blowhard Piers Morgan spouts off criticizing our 2nd Amendment, it is a little more disturbing when American politicians follow suit. Since many politicians choose to ignore history and walk all over the Constitution, it is good to talk a look back and see where these radical notions of an armed society and liberty came from. As I have long pointed out on this blog, the 2nd Amendment isn’t about shooting deer, it’s about shooting tyrants.  Our nation was FOUNDED on such a notion.  The only people who would throw off the chains of tyranny and then undercut the ability for future generations to do so would be tyrants themselves.  I do not view George Washington, Ben Franklin or...

Hypocrisy…I name thee Feinstein. Exempts self from Gun Ban

Feinstein’s list of banned weapons has ballooned to a whopping 157 name brands covering some 2,200 different types of guns.  This has gone beyond a simple so-called “assault weapons ban” to include rifles, shotguns and pistols. The complete list can be found here: http://shtfplan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/Feinstein-Weapons-Ban.jpg Not only is Feinstein looking to get the ball rolling on the slippery slope that is the complete removal of the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution, she has the hypocritical audacity to make sure that she and other elected officials are exempt from the legislation. This type of aristocratic ”do as I say not as I do” bull is one of the things that found a bunch of colonists tossing off the yoke of British oppression some 200+ years ago.  We are not subjects to the whims of our elected officials, to be lorded over by those who believe that there are two America’s.  One in which the rules only apply to those...

Constitution is not the only important document

As gun owners, we put a lot of stock in what the Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights, has to say.  But yet, that is not the only document that the Founding Fathers wrote that was important.  I’m speaking of the Declaration of Independence.  The Declaration was one of the most important things ever written and when signed changed the world forever. Never had a colony broken away from its mother country.  It was a game changer and those that signed it were trail blazers.  As we look at the signing of the Declaration, perhaps through the fog of time we have lost perspective of what it actually did or says. This wasn’t some Sunday afternoon folly perpetrating among some old biddies playing bridge.  This was an act of war, a declaration of rebellion and a call to arms. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these...

Martin Luther King Jr. – Man of peace but no pushover

In 1956 Martin Luther King Jr. applied for a concealed carry permit in Alabamasince he was getting so many death threats.  As you can imagine, since gun controls roots were founded in racism and keeping blacks unarmed was the point of gun control, King was denied. Now, some of you may think that MLK Jr wanting to carry a gun is incongruent with him being a non violent civil rights activist.  It’s not and here’s why; just because you preach non violence does not mean you need to be a sacrificial lamb to anyone who is going to harm you or your family. Dr. King believed that through non-violence interaction with the government his dream of equality could be realized.  But he was not naive nor stupid and did not believe that non violence would protect him or his family from those with evil in their hearts. So Martin Luther King Jr, a black...

A snapshot of the world where gun control wins

In a rash of crime criminals are proving that they don’t need firearms in order to commit their acts of brutality. In a recent trend another person was beaten and thrown onto subway tracks, this time in Philadelphia.  Philly, I remind you is a den of anti-gun sentiment with Mayor Nutter leading the charge.  Hmmm…i wonder what could have helped this woman stop a larger more physically imposing male assailant from beating her and tossing her onto the subway tracks?  According to the gun control zealots it was better for her to nearly die than to have the ability to defend herself with a firearm. A woman in New Jersey, one of the most restrictive states for the law abiding to get a firearm to defend themselves, was brutally stabbed repeatedly while she was with her baby inside a Bed Bath & Beyond.  Could a woman defend herself and her baby...

Sheriffs tell Obama he can take his attack on the Constitution and shove it

Beginning with Sheriff Mueller, a 28 year law enforcement veteran, a number of Sheriffs around the country have begun to voice their opposition to the unconstitutional gun grab being orchestrated by the Obama administration. Linn Country Sheriff Tim Mueller wrote a compelling letter to Vice President Biden, the head of Obama’s 2nd Amendment Hit Squad, eloquently stating his intentions should the federal government attempt to undermine the citizens right to keep and bear arms. “In the wake of recent criminal events, politicians are attempting to exploit the deaths of innocent victims by advocating for laws that would prevent honest, law-abiding Americans from possessing certain firearms and ammunition magazines.” “We are Americans.  We must not allow, nor shall we tolerate, the actions of criminals, no matter how heinous the crimes, to prompt politicians to enact laws that will infringe upon the liberties of responsible citizens who have broken no laws.” “Any federal regulation...

The War of the States

With the 23 executive actions that Obama has set forth on top of his desire to reinstate the assault weapons ban one can see the federal fight shaping up for the future of the 2nd Amendment.  But I wonder if that is where the real fight is going to take place. I think that for every New York State, that pushes senseless and ineffective measures under the auspices of reducing gun violence, you will have a half dozen states like Texas and Wyoming who seek to strengthen their gun rights.  States that are going so far as arresting federal agents who try and enforce federally backed infringements to the 2nd Amendment. There will be a divide in the States over gun rights but it is far from evenly split and oddly enough does not necessarily follow the traditional red/blue dichotomy. Sure, when someone thinks of New England and the West Coast they think...

New York Gov exploits death of 20 children to pass worthless gun control measures

The politicians in Albany have decided that now is the time to push forward their radical anti-gun agenda while the blood is still fresh from the deaths of 26 innocent people.  By the end of today the State Assembly will follow the lead of the State Senate and pass the draconian gun control measures that Gov. Cuomo has been harping on for the past month. Why do I call this exploitation and not a reasoned response to a tragedy?  Simple.  If this was a valid response to the Sandy Hook tragedy then SOME measure of this bill would have stopped the tragedy from happening in the first place if it had been enacted in Connecticut. But no, the bill is a wish list for gun control zealots chock full of infringements that would not have been able to pass if not augmented with the blood of dead children due to sensationalized...

Since when is being practical, paranoia?

I was thinking over the weekend about how often I have needed to use my seat belt because I got into a car accident.  Surprisingly, it was the same number of times I have had to use my gun to protect myself or someone else. Now, when I wear my seat belt nobody tells me I’m being paranoid about being t-boned, nor do they tell me I have been watching too many car movies like Fast and Furious and am styling myself as Vin Diesel.  Nobody says that I am looking to get into car crashes.  Nobody tells me that if I too scared not to go out in the world without my seat belt on that I should just stay inside.  Nobody questions my manhood for wearing a seat belt nor do they make some allusion to my seat belt compensating for something. No.  No one tells me that taking the small precaution...

State and School buck the Obama Narrative

In encouraging news, the State of Wyoming and the School District of Montpelier Ohio have decided to embrace the 2nd Amendment in defense of their freedom and their charges. In Wyoming, legislation has been proposed that would protect gun ownersfrom any federal bans on assault weapons or large-capacity magazines by making federal laws against semiautomatic rifles and clips unenforceable within the state.  Not only does it state that it will protect gun owners from federal laws infringing upon their rights, but also backs it up by charging a felony to any federal agent who would try enforce a federal anti-gun law within the state. For a state who prides itself for its defense of Civil Rights, going so far as officially nicknaming itself, “The Equality State”, I am not surprised that Wyoming would stand firm in defense of the rights of its citizens. If more states join Wyoming along with...

Emperor Obama desires to bypass laws and rule by fiat

Barack Obama’s # 1 henchman, Joe Biden, has let it slip that Obama will consider moving forward to ban guns unilaterally using executive orders. Joe Biden, one of the chief authors of the Brady Bill who introduced it in the Senate, has been tapped by the self styled Emperor Obama to head up a task force on gun violence.  The name of this task force is a misnomer though as it is not looking to deal with any type of solution toward actual gun violence.  Rather, it is comprised of gun grabbers whose main objective is the banning of guns for law abiding people and the rewriting of the 2nd Amendment. The task force met with representatives of the following groups on Wednesday: • Arizona for Gun Safety • Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence • Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus & States United to Prevent Gun Violence •...

Time to ban fists and feet

Here’s a little factoid that the foaming at the mouth Assault Weapons Banning crowd might find interesting.  According to the FBI you are TWICE as likely to be beaten to death by someone using their hands or feet than you are being killed by a rifle. And that’s not just a so called “assault” rifle…that’s EVERY kind of rifle combined. The numbers break down like this: In 2010 when this information was compiled there were 358 murders committed by a perpetrator using a rifle.  Over that same time, 745 people were killed were the perpetrator used only his hands, fists or feet to do so. At a ratio of 2 to 1 there is an epidemic of fist and feet murders going on in the country and as such, according to the rationale of the gun control zealots, action must be taken.  Immediately everyone must register their hands and their...
