Ted Cruz Needs Our Support in Texas U.S. Senate Race

As Texans sit and watch the mainstream media pump up President Obama and try to tear down Mitt Romney every day on national TV, radio, news print and the internet, it becomes ever more clear how important it is to make sure we elect true leaders to the United States Senate like Ted Cruz in Texas.

Gun owners were early supporters of Cruz, whose record on protecting the Second Amendment, including arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court, is perfect. Cruz’s knowledge of the Constitution and his ability to effectively lead the fight to protect it are huge advantages when the Left-Wing members of the U.S. Senate, led by “Dirty Harry” Reid, try to tear it down or destroy it altogether.
 
After tough Primary and runnoff victories, Cruz is considered by many Texans to be a shoo-in for the General Election. But the left in America will go to any length to try and derail his campaign between now and November.

You can help make sure Ted Cruz makes it across the finish line with another victory in the General Election by supporting the Cruz campaign at www.tedcruz.org.

This fight is not over. Help make sure Ted Cruz is the new Senator from Texas. You can help with your donations and also by contacting the Cruz campaign to volunteer for precinct walking, phone banks, etc.
 
Thank you for your support of the Second Amendment and Ted Cruz for Senate.

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard Today at 202-224-3121

All firearms owners, hunters and sportsmen to immediately call their U.S. Senators and urge them to vote YES on a critically important procedural motion that will allow the Senate to take up the Sportsmen’s Act (S.3525) after the November election.

The bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act is the most important single piece of pro-sportsmen legislation in a generation. This historic legislation includes the firearms industry’s top legislative priority, the Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection Act (S.838), which would clarify that ammunition is excluded from regulation by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

Anti-hunting groups led by the Center for Biological Diversity are suing the EPA to force a ban on traditional ammunition made with lead components that would devastate hunting and shooting sports participation, drive up ammunition prices on average by almost 200 percent and dry up conservation funding.

This historic, bipartisan legislation is strongly supported by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and over 40 of the nation’s leading sportsmen and conservation groups like the NRA, Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance and the Boone and Crockett Club.

The Sportsmen’s Act is a package of 19 separate bills including the majority of sportsmen’s legislative priorities in this Congress. (See below for an overview of the components of the bill.) A similar package of bills — the Sportsmen’s Heritage Act of 2012 (H.R. 4089) — was passed by the House in April by a bipartisan vote of 276 to 146. Eventual passage of this unprecedented pro-sportsmen’s legislation will promote, protect and preserve our nation’s hunting, shooting and conservation heritage for generations to come.

But you must act now! The Senate can consider this important procedural vote at any time. Anti-hunting forces are aggressively trying to block the Senate from even considering the Sportsmen’s Act. So act now, call your U.S. Senators at 202-224-3121 and urge them to vote YES on this important step in getting the bipartisan Sportsmen’s Act the vote it deserves after the election.

Sportsmen’s Priorities in the Sportsmen’s Act:

The Hunting, Fishing and Recreational Shooting Protection Act — Specifically excludes ammunition and fishing tackle from the Toxic Substances Control Act, preventing unnecessary regulations that could devastate hunting, shooting, conservation funding and the firearm and ammunition industries.

Making Public Lands Public — Requires that the 1.5 percent of annual Land and Water Conservation Fund funding is made available to secure public access to federal public land for hunting, fishing, and other recreational purposes.

Target Practice and Marksmanship Training Support Act — Makes Pittman-Robertson funds available to states for a longer period of time for the creation and maintenance of shooting ranges. The bill encourages federal land agencies to cooperate with state and local authorities to maintain shooting ranges and limits liability for these agencies.

Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 to urge your senators vote YES in procedural support of the actual vote later this fall on the Sportsmen’s Act.

Don't Bring a Sword to a Gun Fight

Las Vegas goes to great lengths to hide that fact that it is one of the most dangerous cities in America.  While the Strip is relatively safe, you don’t have to wander off more than a block to experience the real Las Vegas. 

Nevada does not recognize Texas Concealed Carry Licenses.  Travel to Las Vegas at your own risk.  I won’t be going for the first time in over 30 years though I do have tentative plans to attend the annual SHOT show in January 2013.  I carry under provisions of the LEOSA and would not travel to Las Vegas unless I was armed. 

Last month a masked man attempting to rob a Dairy Queen with a samurai sword was shot in the chest and killed by an armed employee.

The incident happened around noon on a Sunday at the Dairy Queen on South Maryland Parkway near Karen Avenue, which is not far from the Strip.

The stored employee fired two shots at the suspect was transported to Sunrise Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say the shooting was self-defense and no charges have been filed against the clerk.

In general Nevada has Second Amendment friendly laws and is a shall issue state.  Texas honors Nevada concealed carry permits and I don’t know why Nevada does not reciprocate. Legally armed citizens may carry guns into casinos and most other public establishments in Nevada. 

Nevada honors concealed carry permits from:
Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia

IG Clears His Boss Eric Holder in Fast and Furious Investigation

Operation Fast and Furious resulted in ATF losing track of hundreds of guns sold to illegal straw buyers in Arizona. The guns were allowed into Mexico by ATF agents who wanted to target the Mexican cartels.

Many believe the real purpose of the investigation was to gather evidence for the Obama Administration to facilitate the passing of more gun control laws. 

The inspector general’s 471-page report comes after a 19-month review.

Attorney General Eric Holder was given a pass by the Inspector General who found no evidence that his boss was knew about the controversial tactics.

Holder was held in contempt of Congress in June for not handing over documents related to the operation.

Two of the illegal weapons were found in December 2010 at the scene of a US border agent’s murder. Fast and Furious ended in early 2011.

No criminal charges were recommended as a result of the report.

The most senior official cited by Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s 471-page report was Lanny Breuer, head of the justice department’s criminal division.

Breuer was held responsible for not alerting his superiors in 2010 to flaws in a similar programme, known as Operation Wide Receiver, which started under former President George W Bush.

A “series of misguided strategies, tactics, [and] errors in judgment” all contributed to the failure of Fast And Furious and Wide Receiver, the report said.

The problems dated back to 2006 but current senior officials were criticised for failing to question firearms officials about the questionable tactics during Fast and Furious.

The strategy known as “gun-walking”, allowing suspected straw purchasers to leave gun stores with weapons with the intent of tracking them, was barred under a long-standing departmental policy.

The inspector general also concluded that poor internal information-gathering and communication at the justice department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms caused them to misinform Congress about the operation.

“The key conclusions are consistent with what I, and other justice department officials, have said for many months now,” AG Holder said in a statement.

Two other top justice officials named in the report, Kenneth Melson, the former head of ATF, will retire after its publication. Jason Weinstein, a senior criminal division official, will resign.

Mr Holder said officials cited in the report, from the ATF as well as the US Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona, have been referred for disciplinary action.

In June Mr Holder became the first sitting attorney general to be held in contempt of Congress. He faced proceedings after the House Oversight Committee led its own investigation into operation.

The roots of that investigation began on 4 February 2011 when the justice department sent lawmakers a letter denying it had sanctioned or otherwise knew about guns illegally ending up Mexico.

The department withdrew the letter 10 months later, acknowledging the operation had allowed guns across the border.

Led by Republican Darrell Issa, the House Oversight Committee subpoenaed documents for that 10-month period.

The justice department sent the committee more than 7,000 documents relating to Fast and Furious, and to a similar operation that took place during the George W Bush administration.

The Department of Justice says it has denied access to rest of the files because they contain information that could affect ongoing criminal investigations.

The White House then raised the stakes by announcing it would exert executive privilege to protect the documents in question from subpoena.

The IG report as expected, cleared Holder and threw many senior ATF officials under the bus.  Anyone who has worked in federal law enforcement knows that an international operation like this is always cleared at the highest levels of the Justice Department and at the White House.

Wake up America!

JFK Supported the Second Amendment

John F. Kennedy would not recognize the Democrat Party today.  For all you old school Democrats who are still holding out hope, you need to realize that the train has left the station.  This is not your grandfather’s Democrat Party. 

Today Democrats are lead by liberal fascists statists who despise liberty and freedom.  They want to take away both first and second amendment civil rights from the people.  Wake up America. It’s not too late to save our country and support ALL our inalienable rights.

Register to vote and cast your ballot on November 6. 

”By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia,’ ‘the security of the nation,’ and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy… The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”
~John F. Kennedy

Listen up and hear me well! This is a critical time for our nation, and too many people are sitting back to let others do the hard work. So it’s time for all of us to put some gas in it and persuade all eligible gun owners to register. That’s why I volunteered my time to film the ad shown here.

Now it’s your turn and I want to see results! Start now by sending this message to everyone you know who supports the Second Amendment.

I expect 110% right now from everyone who values our freedoms! NO EXCUSES. And remember — pain is just weakness leaving the body!
