245 Years Later, Long Guns are Still The Life Blood of the Armed Patriot Citizen

It occurred to me this morning (July 3rd) while preparing my coffee and sitting down to work on a few writing projects that America at present is at a crossroads much like our Founding Fathers were some 245 odd years ago.

Like those brave men in the Continental Congress, we now at present face a similar tyrannical system of Government that is clearly not interested in individual liberties anymore. At every turn it seems this Government seeks to deny us, the American Citizen the rights afforded to us in the Constitution and Bill of Rights to “Keep and Bear Arms.” If you have been paying attention this past year it seems obvious that semi-automatic rifles like the AR-15 are the focus of their despotic disarmament scheme more than any other type of weapon. But why is this?

“That is why our masters in Washington are so anxious to disarm us. They are not afraid of criminals. They are afraid of a populace which cannot be subdued by tyrants.” -Colonel Jeff Cooper

History clearly shows that a populace armed with rifles stands a much better chance than one armed with handguns and an ill temper. This is why there is such a push at the highest levels of government to go after rifles, because an armed civilian populace SCARES them!

Gun control as many of you know comes in many forms and guises, but the most despicable form is the “Practical, Common Sense” approach. This type of control is most often now seen in Firearms Training articles predominantly authored by current or ex-Law Enforcement Officers.

Case in point: this article which seeks to use the John Hurley shooting a week ago as a reason for civilians to NOT carry rifles in their vehicles for self-defense because a nervous cop may shoot them thinking they are the bad guy!

Now the irony of this story is that Hurley killed the murdering perp with his legal concealed carry pistol. Hurley was then shot by a responding officer because he (Hurley) had picked up the perp’s AR-15 most likely thinking there were still active multiple shooters and was then mistaken for the shooter by the police and subsequently shot and killed.

Clearly there is a LOT to learn from this tragedy, namely what the armed civilian needs to do AFTER the perp is down and police are responding, but telling civilians to NOT carry a long gun in their car because they may be shot by Law Enforcement is NOT a good piece of advice!

The rifle will always be the LIFE BLOOD of the patriot citizen! It is the instrument by which we protect both ourselves and our freedoms from a tyrannical government.

Organizations like the NRA CMP and Project Appleseed were designed to ENSURE future generations never forget the importance of riflemanship for the every day citizen!

So this July 4th Independece Day take some time to reflect on the FOUNDATIONAL TRUTH that Rifle Ownership and Riflemanship are not only SACRED RIGHTS afforded to us by the Constitution and BIll of Rights but also a SACRED DUTY of the Armed Civilian!

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

There is No Such Thing as “Regulating Rights”

BHO5
By John Farnam
“Rights?”
When someone says, in so many words, “I have a ‘right’ to never have anything bad happen to me,” they are displaying a level of ignorance and self-delusion that ultimately makes for them a short, and unhappy, life.  And, they are unfit for citizenship in a free Republic!
Our Constitution provides no protection from, for example, bacteria.  Either way, bacteria don’t seem to care, one way or another!  Likewise, immunity from sadness, unfortunate circumstances, suffering, dying, and death is also conspicuous by its absence from the Constitutional text. 
Who read such rubbish into our Constitution are delusional and dishonorable.  They dishonor our courageous Founders and all our Constitution’s brave defenders ever since.
Our Constitution does not warrant bad things will never happen, but does confirm certain pre-existing rights (“endowed by our Creator”) of all citizens.  For example, our Constitutional does not guarantee innocent people a fair trail.  Here, everyone is guaranteed a fair trial!
When some leftist says this or that Constitutional right needs to be “regulated,” and fraudulently uses terms like “common sense” and “We’re doing it for you own good,” you can be sure that, in their minds, “regulation” translates to “prohibition,” and, whether in small steps, or in one big one, the result is always the same, and it was invariably their intention, their “hidden agenda,” from the beginning.  They love nothing better than to “regulate” our God-given and Constitutionally-confirmed individual rights as citizens out of existence, suffocating us with so many vaguely-written “rules,” no one can even know if he is “law-abiding” or not.  Thus, all citizens are continually terrorized, groping, weak, and fearful- exactly the way they want us!
And, what makes these weasels, these hypocrites, these Constitutional criminals, so blatantly evil is the fact that none of the restrictions they’re proposing for the rest of us, will ever apply to them, and they know it!
BHO6
Who so self-righteously think, for example, military rifles are inherently wicked and thus need to be prohibited, will (when they have any personal honor) set the example and start with themselves!  We should say to them, “Okay, let’s start with your bodyguards”  And yet, none have volunteered, and no one in our corrupt media is making such a suggestion.  Imagine that!  Many more citizens are murdered ever year than are politicians.  Why is it that they “deserve” protection, but we don’t?
We can never allow ourselves to be deceived by these lying leftists.  They want for themselves all the power, all the revenue, all the privilege, but none of the accountability.  They feel far more of a kinship with Lenin, Marx, and Stalin than they ever will with Washington, Jefferson, and Adams.
They are a disgrace to our Republic, and it is a disgrace that they were ever elected.
For example, Chicago, a massive “gun-free zone,” apparently isn’t!  Attempts at a “gun-free utopia,” always by liberal Democrats, are an obvious and pathetic failure in Chicago, a fact ignored by the corrupt media. 
And, French “gun control” laws, and similar laws throughout Western Europe and the UK, have been pitifully ineffective in disarming/dissuading, even inconveniencing, terrorists.  
Mark that well!
