Democrat Senator Blumenthal Says AR-15 Designed to Kill and Maim INNOCENT Humans

U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D) Connecticut said on CNBC Friday morning that modern sporting rifles like the AR-15, currently the most popular carbine in America, were designed to “kill and maim innocent human beings.”

Progressives lead by MSNBC and the national liberal main stream media are calling for an iron clad law to prevent the manufacture, sale or transfer of modern sporting rifles in the United States.  Click here to watch video if you are using iPad or other device without Flash

An hour after Senator Blumenthal made the above appearance on CNBC, Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President and CEO of the National Rifle Association, spoke live from Washington, DC saying that “we protect” our banks, our airports, and our president, and yet when it comes to our “most beloved and innocent members of our society,”  we leave them “utterly defenseless” and “the monsters of the world know and exploit that.”  ...the monsters and the predators of the world” have exploited the fact that most schools are gun-free zones. Other important institutions—such as banks, courts and power plants—are protected with armed security,” he said.

“The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” Mr. LaPierre said in his statement to reporters Friday.

I agree.  The hoplophobes who have an unhealthy fear of firearms and liberal fascists who want to pave the wave for tyranny by confiscating guns, disagree.

“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.” -Sigmund Freud

Gun control defined: The theory that people who are willing to ignore laws against rape, torture, kidnapping, theft, and murder will obey a law which prohibits them from owning a firearm.

“A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you have.” – Barry Goldwater - U.S. Senator (R) Arizona

Liberal Fascists Respond to the NRA proposal:

Senator Barbara Boxer (D) California: “The head of the NRA blamed everyone in sight – except his own organization – for gun violence in America, and showed himself to be completely out of touch by ignoring the proliferation of weapons of war on our streets.”

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg: “The NRA’s Washington leadership has long been out of step with its members, and never has that been so apparent as this morning. Their press conference was a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country. Instead of offering solutions to a problem they have helped create, they offered a paranoid, dystopian vision of a more dangerous and violent America where everyone is armed and no place is safe. Leadership is about taking responsibility, especially in times of crisis. Today the NRA’s lobbyists blamed everyone but themselves for the crisis of gun violence. While they promote armed guards, they continue to oppose the most basic and common sense steps we can take to save lives - not only in schools, but in our movie theaters, malls, and streets. Enough. As a country, we must rise above special interest politics.”

Senator Frank Lautenberg (D) New Jersey: “It is beyond belief that following the Newtown tragedy, the National Rifle Association’s leaders want to fill our communities with guns and arm more Americans. The NRA points the finger of blame everywhere and anywhere it can, but they cannot escape the devastating effects of their reckless comments and irresponsible lobbying tactics. The NRA leadership is wildly out of touch with its own members, responsible gun owners, and the American public who want to close dangerous loopholes and enact common-sense gun safety reform. It is clear that their real priority is to help gun manufacturers sell more guns—not to protect our children or Americans’ rights. The extreme rhetoric of Wayne LaPierre and the NRA is disturbing and dangerous, and will only exacerbate America’s deadly culture of gun violence.”

If you remember only one thing that you have read on Bonzer Wolf Today™, remember this:

“When the people fear their government there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” – Thomas Jefferson

Obama Propoganda Machine Pushes "Sensible Gun Laws" PC Speak for CONFISCATION of Firearms

Ed Schultz is out as the gun confiscation front man for the Obamanation on MSNBC.  During a Twitter exchange  on Saturday Schultz asked “Why should anyone own an assault rifle ?” and followed it up by saying “it’s the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact.”

“The Ed Show” host wasn’t done with his attack on Second Amendment civil rights. “The NRA needs to state the case why assault weapons are needed by anyone,” he claimed. And after that, he told one poster that “a Glock pistol qualifies as an assault weapon.” 

Schultz later talked of the need to amend the Constitution to one person on Twitter. “We are the Constitution and we as a people can change whatever we want. Get ready Dude !” he wrote. On this I agree.  If progressives want to ban and/or confiscate firearms, they need to legally amend the Constitution.  My advice to Schultz, go for it, Dude!

Schultz has a history of advocating gun confiscation. In early December, he said the NFL should tell players not to have guns: “I don’t think it’s out of the realm that the NFL should be asking players or demanding or making sure, don’t own firearms. Just, don’t, all that is is trouble.”

However, he seemed unmoved when his producer James “Holmy” Holm talked about putting a gun to CEOs to force them to spend back in 2011. “The president is going to speak with business leaders that are sitting on $1.9 trillion dollars — $1.9 trillion dollars. Maybe what we should do is put a gun to their head and just say, give us that $1.9 trillion dollars, you don’t need to read anything, just hand it to us!” he told listeners to Schultz’s radio program.

Here is the Saturday exchange on Twitter.

Ed Schultz ‏@WeGotEd @gt500cws who’s facts ? I have a fact for you. We are the Constitution and we as a people can change whatever we want. Get ready Dude !

Ed Schultz ‏@WeGotEd @gt500cws a Glock pistol qualifies as an assault weapon.

Ed Schultz ‏@WeGotEd The NRA needs to state the case why assault weapons are needed by anyone.

Ed Schultz ‏@WeGotEd @gt500cws a Glock pistol qualifies as an assault weapon.

Ed Schultz ‏@WeGotEd Write all the feel good laws you want, it’s the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact.

Ed Schultz ‏@WeGotEd Why should anyone own an assault rifle ? We need to be realistic about the 2nd amendment..society has changed, views have changed.

On Sunday Morning, MSNBC left wing radical Chris Hayes called for a total ban on the guns used in the Newtown shooting, which includes 9mm Glock and Sig Sauer handguns.  MSNBC coined the PC term “sensible gun laws” in support of their gun confiscation agenda. NBC is the voice of the indisputable voice of the Obamanation.

If you think “Sensible gun laws” is anything other than liberal fascist PC speak for gun confiscation of all civilian owned firearms, you’re part of the problem, rather than the solution to violence.  Wake up America!

It Takes A Good Guy (or Girl) with a Gun to Take Out a Bad Guy with a Gun

We are learning more details about a man who opened fire at a San Antonio, Texas movie theater on Sunday, wounding one person. Investigators say the shooter was angry after his girlfriend broke up with him.

The gunman was apparently targeting a co-worker who he chased out of a restaurant located across the parking lot from the movie theater. The gunman first showed up at the China Garden Restaurant, where investigators say he worked, along with his ex-girlfriend.

Investigators believe the gunman chased restaurant employee out a back door and continued to shoot at him in the parking lot. He shot through the windshield of an San Antonio Police Department patrol car that had responded to a 911 call from the restaurant.

The restaurant employee ran into the Mayan Palace Theater trying to escape, and the gunman followed. “We heard shots and right away we took off and hid behind some seats,” said Jessica Bosquez, who was in one of the auditoriums waiting to watch the movie, “The Hobbit”.

The gunman continued firing as he ran through the theater lobby, while some movie-goers took cover and others ran for the exits.

The gunman, identified as 19-year-old Jesus Manuel Garcia, appeared to be chasing someone who ran into the restroom.

“A lot of people were hiding in the restroom”,  said Joseph Monsalvo, who saw the gunman briefly, before running out an exit.

The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office says an off-duty sergeant, who was working security at the theater, heard the gunshots and responded immediately. She fired at the gunman as he was coming out of the men’s restroom.

That off-duty sergeant, identified as Lisa Castellano, fired four times, striking the gunman at least once. One other person was wounded during the shooting, a 49-year-old man inside the theater, was hit by one of the gunman’s shots. Both the shooter and the victim are expected to recover from their wounds.

Investigators say at least 30 rounds were fired during the shooting rampage.  Investigators believe the shooting started after the suspect became aware that a co-worker was dating his ex-girl friend.

The details of this shooting have not been reported by the national media because it does not advance their hoplophobic gun control agenda.  The left does not want the public to know that it takes a lawfully armed person with a gun to stop a felonious active shooter.  Most of the time, when seconds count, law enforcement officers are minutes away.  Trained and licensed concealed handgun carriers make the public safer.

The national media has also refused to report that a concealed handgun license holder was responsible for stopping the shooter and saving countless loves in the recent Oregon mall mass shooting incident.

Nick Meli, a 22-year-old CHL holder was at Clackamas Town Center with a friend and her baby when the masked gun man opened fire.

“I heard three shots and turned and looked at Casey and said, ‘are you serious?,’” he said.

The friend and baby hit the floor. Meli, who has a concealed carry permit, positioned himself behind a pillar.

“He was working on his rifle,” said Meli. “He kept pulling the charging handle and hitting the side.”

The break in gunfire allowed Meli to pull out his own gun, while keeping his eyes on the shooter.

“As I was going down to pull, I saw someone in the back of the Charlotte move, and I knew if I fired and missed, I could hit them,” he said.

Meli then took cover inside a nearby store. He never pulled the trigger.  “I’m not beating myself up cause I didn’t shoot him,” said Meli. “I know after he saw me, I think the last shot he fired was the one he used on himself.”

No other shots were fired after the shooter became aware of Meli.  Meli’s armed presence saved an untold number of lives. Yet NONE of the national media, incuding FOX News, whose CEO Rupert Murdoch, is a strong gun control advocate, is reporting this story.

How can the gun grabbers discount the notion that the shooter decided to end his life when he realized that the alternative might be getting shot himself and surviving to spend the rest of his life behind bars or in a mental institution?

There are multiple incidents in the United States every month where legally armed citizens prevent crimes and save lives.  Those situation are almost never reported by the national media. 

Mall shoppers who survived that day, their families, the media and the public should be asking how much worse the death toll might have been on December 11 if Meli had not been legally armed.  By refusing to report the facts, the media is attempting to gather support for strict gun control and putting innocent citizens are risk. 

Wake up America.  Guns save lives EVERYDAY in the USA.  The hoplophobic media, simply refuses to report it.

hoplophbia  is an irrational aversion to firearms, as opposed to normal apprehension to guns. It is generally used to describe the “irrational fear of armed citizens”

The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not be Infringed

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed- Second Amendment

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.

It’s not complicated nor is it complex.  The U.S. Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land.  If you don’t like it, you certainly have the right to try and amend the Constitution.  I would argue that it’s in fact your Patriotic Duty to try and amend the Constitution if you believe it’s in the best interest of the Republic.  Propose your changes to the Bill of Rights and put it a vote in the Congress and in the States as provided for in the Constitution. The Constitution has been amended 17 times since the original 10 Amendments were passed.

If you attempt to circumvent the Constitution and violate our civil rights, be you alien, citizen, judge,  politician or President, you are a subversive.

I don’t care what the law is in Canada, Great Britain, Australia, or any other country on earth.  We live in a free country and you are free to leave at any time.  If it was up to me, subversive Piers Morgan would be first in line to get out and never return.

U.S. Representative Louie Gohmert represents Texas 1st Congressional District in the House of Representatives.

Gohmert was born in Pittsburg, Texas. He received his B.A. from Texas A&M University in 1975. At A&M, he was a brigade commander of the Corps of Cadets and class president. He later received his Juris Doctor from Baylor University in Waco in 1977 where he also served as class president. Gohmert served in the United States Army Judge Advocate General’s Corps, at Fort Benning, Georgia, from 1978 to 1982. The majority of his U.S. Army legal service was as a defense attorney.

Gohmert was elected as a state district judge for Texas’s 7th Judicial District comprising Smith County (Tyler) in 1992 and was reelected two times before being appointed by Governor Rick Perry to fill a vacancy as Chief Justice on Texas’s 12th Court of Appeals, where he served from 2002 to 2003.

A mid-decade redistricting made the 1st District significantly more Republican than its predecessor, notably by moving Gohmert’s home in Tyler from the 4th to the 1st. Gohmert defeated Democratic incumbent 1st District Congressman Max Sandlin with 61 percent of the vote to Sandlin’s 39 percent, becoming the first Republican since Reconstruction to represent northeast Texas.

Gohmert serves on two House committees: Judiciary (because of his judicial background) and Natural Resources (as his district sits on top of the East Texas oil field).

Proving just how Republican this district had become, Gohmert has been elected five times with virtually no opposition.

Asked on “Fox News Sunday” why Americans need to own semi-automatic weapons, Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert said, “Well, for the reason George Washington said: a free people should be an armed people. It ensures against the tyranny of the government, if they know that the biggest army is the American people.”

Gohmert added, “Once you start drawing the line, where do you stop? … Gun laws don’t work.

Washington and our other Founding Father’s were very wise men who knew what they were doing.

Founder George Mason explicitly wished to have it clearly spelled out that the militia was “of the whole people,” in effect, a “general militia” that was affirmed in the Second Amendment and the 1792 Militia Act. Mason and his supporters feared the development of “special militias” — ones much like the Puritan “Roundheads” led by Oliver Cromwell and their opponents, the “Cavaliers,” in the English Civil War of 1642—57.

Special militias are nothing more than state-sanctioned paramilitary groups — witness the German Nazi SA and its successor the SS as well as the Italian Fascist “Blackshirts.” In those cases, Nazi/Fascist Party membership was strictly required to join them as well as to legally own a firearm of any kind in either of those countries at the time.

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so. Indeed I would go so far as to say that the underdog is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order.”

~ Adolf Hitler, April 11, 1942, in “Hitler’s Table-Talk at the Führer’s Headquarters 1941—1942,” Dr. Henry Picker, ed. (Athenaeum Verlag, Bonn, 1951)

In addition to the primary intent of the Founding Fathers to guarantee an armed militia of the people, the Supreme Court has recently clarified the right of citizens to keep and bear arms for self defense.

In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions concerning the Second Amendment. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia and to use firearms for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.

I understand that Politics involves compromise. But our civil rights are not subject to politics or compromise. Under no circumstances will I support further infringement of the inalienable rights that are enumerated in the first Ten Amendments to the Constitution, including the Second Amendment.

Gun Grabbers "Assault Weapons" Myth 

NEWS BULLETINALL firearms can be used as assault weapons.  So can knives, forks, tuna lids, broken glass and baseball bats which the FBI says are responsible for more murders than any other “assault weapons”. 

The term assault weapon is a misnomer invented by the Hoplophobia Brady Bunch.  Their goal is to confiscate all the firearms owned/possessed by civilians. 

Obama agrees with them. His Eric Holer lead Justice Department has repeatedly argued in federal appeals court that only U.S. Military personnel have a constitutional right to keep and bear firearms government owned owned and issued firearms. Their legal position states that even police officers don’t have a Constitutional right to keep and bear firearms under the Second Amendment.
 
Modern firearms are better made today because of computer aided manufacturing techniques.  But the design of modern firearms is essentially the same as it was 100 years ago.  Fully automatic firearms were invented in 1920’s. You must obtain a Class III federal license from ATF to possess a fully automatic firearm.  It’s expensive and no fully automatic firearms have been used in mass murders or virtually any other crime in the United States in my lifetime.

The 1911 was invented 101 years ago.  Modern pistols operate essentially the same, though many are now striker fired not hammer fired.  The AR-15 is the civilian version of the M4 carbine. An AR-15 is no more of an assault weapons than a Ruger Mini 14 Ranch rifle.  Both shoot the same caliber ammo and the same multi-round capacity magazines are available for both. 

The only reason the AR-15 is called an assault weapon or military is because of the way it looks. It is styled after the M4, a military issued carbine.  Hoplophobes hate that look. But the Ruger Mini 14  does the same damage as the AR-15.  It’s the same weapon mounted on a more traditional platform, with a wood stock.  So why will one be banned as an assault weapon and the other not?  Simply because of the the way it looks.

Here’s a another news bulletin. Firearms can easily be manufactured in mom and pop machine shops.  There will always be a black market for firearms, especially if an assault weapon ban passes.  Criminals and crazies not NRA members will be buying and illegally using black market firearms. That’s what criminals and crazies do. They commit crimes, thus the term criminals.

For further details on why the Assault Weapons and High Capacity Magazine Ban will fail see the 1994 legislation that expired in 2004.  Or see the war on drugs that I fought in for almost 30 years. Or see prohibition or the influx of illegal aliens over the last 50 years, to see how a weapons confiscation would go.

Government confiscation is not an option.  Confiscation of well over 200 million firearms by the government would have less than a zero chance of being successful.  Firearms ownership in Australia was 7% when they passed their firearms ban and confiscated all civilian handguns and most rifles .  The federal government paid half a billion dollars to buy back those guns.  And guess what, Australia still has gun crime and tons of other violent crime.  Now people find other ways to kill themselves and their nagging spouses. 

Firearms ownership in USA is 89 guns for every 100 people. 

That amounts to roughly 270 million guns owned nationwide, far and away the highest gun ownership rate in the world. With less than 5 percent of  the world’s population, the U.S. is home to anywhere between 35 and 50 percent of all civilian-owned guns on earth.

But contrary to what the left wants you to believe, America does not have the highest firearm-related homicide rate in the world. The United States ranks 28th in firearms related homicides.

That Glock 19, perhaps the most popular handgun in the United States over the last twenty five years, has the capacity to take magazines that hold over 30 rounds.  Yes my friend, your Glock 19 is a large capacity assault weapon. They are coming for the magazines that hold over 10 rounds now; gun to follow.

Both a Glock 19 pistol and an AR-15 carbine can both hold 30 round magazines while shooting very accurately. Optics, lasers and lights can be attached to both.  I would make the argument that modern 9mm self defense ammo is more deadly than .223 bullets.  I’d rather take a .223 or 5.56 round than a hollow point 9mm if you offered me a choice.  Odds are both are going to kill me but I have a higher chance of survival with one .223 than one hot hollow point 9mm if the bullet passes through without hitting any vital organs.  

Would anyone feel better if those precious children in Newtown were shot with .357 magnum bullets fired from a S&W model 66 revolver?  They would be just as dead and the shooter could have used speed loaders to reload and kill just as many in about the same amount of time.  But nobody is talking about a .357 being an assault weapon. I can assure you that you rather be shot by a .223 than a .357 magnum.

The bottom line is that guns, ammo and magazines are not the problem.   There are millions of high capacity magazines and M-4 type weapons out there.  Even if you could confiscate them, it only takes ONE, which the military or police will still have.  Numerous guns are lost, stolen and taken away from the police and military every year.  A criminal or a crazy needs just one gun to commit an atrocity. 

In fact an ICE agent pulled his Sig 226 9mm pistol and shot his supervisor last summer in Long Beach.  Another agent than shot and killed him.  Do you think we should disarm all federal agents because of that atrocity?  

None of the mass murderers that the media keeps reminding us about have involved NRA members or concealed carry permit holders or even gun enthusiast such as hunters or sportsmen.  They were all disturbed, unbalanced, loner white males in their 20’s. Neither the education and nor mental health systems did their job, as the signs of instability were clearly present. 

I agree with Obama. There must be changes.  But more gun control laws is not the change we need. We have plenty of those that are regularly broken by criminals and crazies alike.

Liberal fascists have been brain washing “useful idiots” for decades and now enough voters buy into their bullshit to fundamentally change America.   Don’t take my word for it. Obama repeatedly said he wanted to fundamentally change America before he was elected. 

I don’t advocate arming anyone who is not comfortible with guns.  Prohibited persons should not be allowed to possess firearms.  But I do support responsible, law abiding citizens, receiving training and obtaining concealed carry licenses if that is what they want to do to protect themselves, their family and innocent children.

Even if they don’t carry most of the time, the more law abiding citizens who get concealed carry permits, the safer we all will be.  Forty shall issue states have proven that over the last 30 years.
