Enemies of Liberty are ruthless. To own your Liberty, you'd better come harder than your enemies..

DC Rumor re: AWB & Republicans

There is a rumor beginning to circulate here in my home town that Congressional (Establishment) Rs are floating the concept that allowing DiFi to get her AWB would be a "...good political move, and help Rs retake the entire Congress in the mid-terms..."

I shit thee not.

This political calculus, if there is any merit to it, demonstrates how out of touch Establishment Rs are with reality.

A new AWB/Hi Cap ban, whether passed legislatively or extra-constitutionally, will mean open warfare in America - not favorable political conditions for the mid-term cycle.

Mucking Forons.

I owe many of you email, sorry folks I have been crawling to the computer for just a few minutes each day.  Hopefully things will begin to improve here soon.

Folks: Here is the opportunity for the III to symbolically reveal ourselves.


**UPDATE** Craig's petition has over 8,000 signatures - we need more.  Sign it, folks.  Get your friends and family on this one.  Take it to your blogs and your forums.  Hitting the minimum threshold will force the White House (under their own rules) to address the issue, and will reveal them once again as liars when they refuse.

Click the link below.

Good job to Craig for taking point!  Craig is proving that the Delegates of the III Congress mean to be relevant to the national discussion.

Show your support by signing: Here.

Sign and support not only a fellow III Patriot who took point on our behlaves, but also your support for the III, the III Congress, and our Natural Rights.

The final day of this year...


TL is doing the work of a Patriot.

Sandman delivered a simple statement representing several militias.

Denninger is recommending a variation of the sticker campaign.

Craig made his position clear about 2 weeks ago with a simple, poignant video.

Many bloggers are firming rhetoric.

Gun and ammo sales are at historic levels. 

Many Patriots are locking and loading and putting affairs in order.

The most aggressive Enemies of Liberty are making moves, right now.  Public, noisy moves.

Is AWB rhetoric a Sparklie, merely to settle for the Mental Health solution offered up by NRA?  Are the Marxists merely probing?  Have they reached a point where they believe they genuinely have everything they need to strike the opening salvo against the final remnants of Liberty?  Are they simply blustering in an effort to provoke a Fort Sumter, a casus belli with which they can march forward against the right wing nuts with public approval?

Cut through all of the what-ifs and maybes and other unknowns, and what remains?

What remains is the same reality many of us have been repeating ad nauseum for years: Marxists among us mean to have you bend knee or dead.

I have an email box filled with people asking me what I think, what I suggest, what I counsel.

My counsel remains what it has been since my very first column:

Memento mori

Remember you must die...

...die well.

And for the record: I remain convinced that this latest bout of Gun Control hysteria is exactly that, and will go nowhere through Congress.  Mental Health is possible, but AWB or Hi Cap will not pass legislatively.  Extra-Constitutionally (Exec Order)?  Maybe, but that means war.  There will be no middle ground this time.

Civil War or Redskins - which is better for Ratings...


Drudge just changed his Leader to the Redskins/Cowboys game.

All weekend the Leaderboard warned of Gun Control and Civil War.

Drudge is not merely pandering for the Redskins audience.  You know he is painting the picture that even while perhaps hurtling toward the horrible reality of war between us, most of our Countrymen are oblivious...

You'd better understand the Enemies of Liberty coming at you understand the same dynamic about your Countrymen.

Enemies of Liberty are moving to Contact...


I found the image above at AngryMike's.

It is as simple and concise as the Truth will ever be.

If you are an American, if you are alive today, and if you consider yourself a man or woman who would have stood with John Parker, then the responsibility for saving Liberty is yours.  We are the men and women who are alive at this moment of history when American Liberty may be rid from Earth forever.  We drew the short straw.  It's on you and me.

You knew it was coming.  Our long train of abuses has been documented and talked to death.

The struggle in America right now is not one of "...legitimate political differences of opinion..."

The struggle in America right now is not even one of slavery versus Liberty - for slavery has been dominant in America for a long time.

The struggle in America right now is simply: Will we witness the death of Liberty, the total subjugation of Liberty.  Will we be the Americans who watch it die and breathe its final breath, leaving nothing but darkness on Earth?

Our Founders and Framers knew they were erecting a Government that could, one day, become abusive.  They understood the Nature of Man and the Nature of Government, and they built in tools for brave and courageous and moral Americans to use over the generations to combat the inevitable.  And they warned us.  Every single Founder and Framer wrote warnings for us all that we must forever be vigilant.

Generations of Americans ignored those warnings.

And here we are.

Defining the BattleSpace


President Obama authorized a pay increase for FedGov workers.

In case you were not fully convinced of how the opening of the next Revolution will unfold, it will be by taking advantage of the resentment between those in Government and those who are recipients of Government largesse, versus those who are being robbed and told to bend knee to pay for that largesse.

There has been a systemic pattern of making life easier for Team Marx and piling insult and injury upon Team Liberty for years, and now they are deliberately rubbing your noses in it.

"Why won't you just be reasonable and surrender your 2A?!"


Yes, Patriots, this is where we are with the Marxists who want you disarmed before they begin murdering you.

Lay down your arms and you will be murdered, beaten, raped and dumped in a ditch - not necessarily in that order - by Marxists and their minions among us.

It is that simple.

.40 S&W Purchases


Some of you will know this answer - all of the .40 S&W rounds can't simply be for handguns carried by SWATers.  Does anyone know what agencies have large numbers of .40 S&W SMG's?

My point: A .40 S&W SMG is a tactical entry weapon, used for Stacks, not open field engagements.

That is a clue to the battle plan of the enemy - they plan on close range no-knock tactics.

So: Anyone know what agencies have .40 SMGs and quantities and brands?

III: Year in review


2012 has been a good year for the III Brand.

More people know about us today than they did a year ago, and a few of those people even see the world as do we.  Others, not so much.  ;)

In the middle of the year many of us began evolving the concept of building our own community.  We decided that since we could not find sufficient like-minded neighbors where we live today, why not pick a spot and make a new home, filled with only people who are like-minded.  And the Citadel concept was born.  You will remember we ran at least 2 dozen polls to help refine the concept, and hundreds of you weighed-in and helped the project define its edges.

We also examined why previous such endeavors had failed, such as the Free State projects and Bo Gritz's Almost Heaven.  We decided they failed because they did not bring work with them, and relied instead on the local economy of their new homes.  We decided to avoid that mistake, and the concept for III Arms was born.

Many of us understood that a working industry could provide the cornerstone of the new community, and as we discussed and evolved the concept, that a firearms company was a prudent, utilitarian choice.  When we had decided to move forward, I was very proud that so many of you trusted me to take point as far as I was able. 

And where are we today?

III Arms Company is up and running with a brilliant Patriot at the helm.  ATF still has to sign off on a few details for him, but everything is moving as smoothly as possible, and as fast as possible when dealing with bureaucracies.  H is helping on the business side and was brave enough to take point as well.  By the way, given the current state of 2A, there is no better time to be entering into the firearms business!  Unpredictable, to be sure, but until all the talk of bans is settled, profit margins will be larger than ever.  It is in such volatile circumstances when the greatest risk/reward outcomes are possible.  As you know, the revenue generated from III Arms is dedicated to help get the Citadel going. 

The Citadel project is beginning to hit a stride as well.  The paperwork is a bit behind the curve, but here too H is working hard.  In both projects you have all seen how many wonderful, brave and talented Patriots have, as BonnieGadsden coined, helped by pulling the rope.  There are blogs and Facebook pages and Twitter accounts running.  We have a Steering Committee, and we've been getting some press.  As things are evolving at the moment, it looks like developing the Benewah Beachhead for III Arms and the first wave of III Pioneers is the best course.  But, we will remain flexible, and change our plans as circumstances dictate.

We've recently developed the III Congress in an attempt to help coordinate LocalLocalLocal efforts, and I encourage anyone who is interested to help.  Perhaps you do not want to be on point for the Congress, but perhaps you can help by sponsoring a III Patriot who is willing to serve as a Delegate.  IIICongress here.

Many of our previously considered projects, including a III Poster, SHTF & Go Bag projects and more will find a home in the Media Kit being built for several of our III projects.

IIIGear continues to help outfit our community with Branded gear to not only add important gear to our kits, but also building morale and cohesion.  By the way, a big batch of KA-BAR and Cold Steel arrived this morning, so they'll be shipping this week.  Both KA-BAR and Cold Steel decided to retire several of their blade designs, without warning.  And all I have to say about shirts/hoodies is that III Gear will fill whatever outstanding orders remain, then we are out of the shirt business.  Way too much headache and too many companies out there that do NOT do quality work.  But the support from you all at IIIGear has been wonderful.  Be sure to fly your patches and III Branded gear for all to see.

I wrote and published my first political book just about 3 years ago.  I started writing online shortly after that, and May will mark 3 years of writing online for me.  In that time the III has grown stronger and more unified, sometimes by coming together such as III Arms and the Citadel.  Sometimes the III has grown stronger through our fights as we sharpen our identity and choose to stand apart from some who claim to be Patriots, or even claim to be III, but whose actions prove differently.

I look forward to moving into and through 2013 with you all.  We will add some people to our ranks, we will lose some.  Some of us will, hopefully, be in the Redoubt and making that project succeed.

Regardless of what happens, I am proud to stand with you all.

GOA: The only no-compromise pro-gun blog...


I call Bullshit!

So now you have NRA and GOA calling for expansion of Prohibited Persons via a Mental Health database.

Perhaps they will one day make the claim "We had no choice but to throw the baby under the bus to save the carriage!"  And there will be some who believe it.  Some will believe that this is all a political move, a counter-weight against Feinstein's AWB. 

You do understand, don't you, just how elastic and subjective would be the "Rules" for qualifying or being denied 2A based on the decisions taken by a physician or ObamaCare bureaucrat?  Think about the abused women that represent at least a few of the dots on the gun permit map above.  How many of them were not traumatized during their abuse?!  No 2A for you, poor little lady.  You are now Prohibited from 2A because your ex beat you, and that beating made you a liability to society if you had 2A.

In any fight there is a proper time to side-step, and a proper time to step back.

But in this fight for 2A, now is the time to advance hard and counter.  Challenge the very premise of GCA and NFA. 

But advancing and countering is not in the best interests of the well-heeled Lobbyists at GOA & NRA.

Here's the link.

When Pravda's propaganda is more truthful than America's...


...Houston, we have a problem.

From Pravda: Is there a Communist in every [American] closet? No, but the threat was a horrible reality in Russia as it is now in Amerika. Do they admit they are Communists? How naïve you are if you think they will openly say that word. Many do not even know that they are. They prefer to ridicule anyone who uses the word "Communist".

For those of you who believe that America will never again know Liberty without returning to a particular Christianity, read the above (linked) piece from Pravda, and this piece from LT Prepper.

I won't quibble about the flavors of Christianity or even the premise that religion is required for a return to Liberty, but I will affirm that without the better virtues of most religions returning to the hearts of Americans, the fight is already lost.  But so long as any single American holds in his heart the best of the values embodied in our Founding Documents, we still have a chance.

Diana & Holly meet at last...


Boys and girls are different, in more than just the fun ways.

Consider the hard-wiring differences between us when crying, for instance.  Girls are wired to cry for many reasons.  Girls can cry nearly anytime, whether up or down, sad, lonely, or nail-spittin' angry.  Boys are wired (and socially permitted) to cry only when some really, really serious problem is present - and a compound fracture isn't good enough, even if it is his own bone.  When a boy is in the presence of a crying girl, we are usually convinced that there is a problem, and we need to fix it, right nowThat's how we stop the tears!  Fix it!

But you gals are sneaky.  Crying isn't just a sign of a problem, as we've already covered.  Sometimes you start a good cry when happy.

Leaving most of us guys in a position of serious confusion, and of If it ain't broke, how can I fix it so you'll stop crying?!

My wife began a happy cry this morning when Diana the Huntress visited for Chritmas, in the form of a new recurve.


Archery has always whispered to Holly, yet she'd never pursued it.

Now, she will.

Isn't that what leads to a happy life?  Follow your dreams...

Merry Christmas to you all.

A Message from a Patriot


I, Burton Zeller, as an American and as a military veteran, pledge the following:
 
I Pledge to never disarm, and in particular, to never surrender my military pattern, semi-automatic rifles (and full capacity magazines, parts, and ammunition that go with them), regardless of what illegitimate action is taken by Congress, the President, or the courts.

I also pledge to pass on those military pattern rifles to my family and/or my children and my children's children, as well as the full capacity magazines, parts, and ammunition to needed to use them, regardless of what illegitimate action is taken by Congress, the President, or the courts. As Founding Father Tench Coxe said, while attempting to allay the fears of critics of the proposed Constitution:

"The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom?"

"Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American... [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." - Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

And that "power of the sword" - those "terrible implements of the soldier," includes the people's battle rifles and carbines - their M1As, their FN-LARs, their HK 91s, their grandfathers' M1 Garand, their AK 47s, their ARs and M4s, etc. - all of the weapons listed as being targeted in new and improved "Assault Weapons Ban."

The whole point of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military capacity of the American people - to preserve the ability of the people, who are the militia, to provide for their own security as individuals, as neighborhoods, towns, counties, and states, during any emergency, man-made or natural; to preserve the military capacity of the American people to resist tyranny and violations of their rights by oath breakers within government; and to preserve the military capacity of the people to defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, including those oath breaking domestic enemies within government. It is not about hunting, and at its core, the Second Amendment is not really even about self-defense against private criminals. It is about self-defense against public criminals - against tyrants, usurpers, and foreign invaders.

Above all other firearms currently available to the American citizen, modern military pattern, semi-automatic rifles provide that military capacity. Protecting the keeping and bearing of such arms of military utility is the heart and soul of the Second Amendment. Thus, any attempt to ban their possession, sale, purchase, or transfer, is an attempt to disarm the American people.

Nor will I surrender my accurate, scoped, bolt action rifles, which are also great force multipliers of military utility in the roles of sniper and marksman. Invaders, tyrants and usurpers fear the sniper and marksman for good reason, and millions of American hunters have the well practiced field-craft and marksmanship skills to serve in those rolls most effectively. We must preserve their means of doing so, including preserving our .50 caliber sniper rifles, our .338 Lapua's, our .300 Win Mags, and other powerful, long-range capable calibers.

Nor will I surrender my semi-automatic pistols with full capacity magazines, which provide me with the capacity to effectively defend against close range, sudden attack.

I will not disarm, regardless of what law is passed by the oath breakers in Congress, or signed into law by the oath breaker in the White House, and I WILL pass on to my children every terrible implement of the soldier currently in my possession.

Further, I will ask my family and/or children to also pledge to never surrender those arms and equipment, regardless of what illegitimate, Bill of Rights violating law is passed by the oath breakers in Washington DC, and regardless of whatever any oath breaking judge may rule.

Further, I pledge to refuse compliance with any and all laws that attempt to strip me, my family and/or my children of those arms, the full capacity magazines needed to load and fire them, or the parts and ammunition needed to keep them firing. I will use nullification, civil disobedience, and active physical resistance against all such laws. I will nullify, disobey, and resist as an individual, and I will work with my neighbors to nullify, disobey, and resist as towns, counties, and states. We will not disarm, we will not comply, and we will resist.

Further, I pledge to refuse to vote for, and to actively work to purge from office any elected official, of any affiliation, who violates their oath of office by supporting, endorsing, or voting for any law, action, or decree that attempts to disarm me, my family, my children, or my children's children of any of the above noted arms. I pledge to root the oath breakers out, in a scorched earth policy. I will not buy into the "lesser of two evils" con game, and regardless of what party an oath breaking politician is in.

Finally, I pledge to defend myself, my neighbors, my town, county, and state, against any attempt to forcibly disarm them pursuant to any "assault weapons ban" or any other illegitimate "law" passed by oath breakers within Congress, or pursuant to any illegitimate order, action, or decree by the oath breaker within the White House. We will not disarm. We will resist. And if given no other choice but to fight or to submit to abject tyranny, we will fight, just as our forefathers in the American Revolution fought against the tyrants, usurpers, and oath breakers of their day.

If we are presented with the "choice" of submission to tyranny or fighting in defense of our natural rights, we will fight, as our forefathers fought, when the British Empire attempted to disarm them and confiscate the military pattern arms, ammunition, and supplies of their time. We will make the same choice as Patrick Henry made, when he rejected "peace" purchased at the price of chains and slavery, and said "I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!" I too choose liberty or death.

I hereby reaffirm the oath I swore through more than 30 years of military and federal civilian service to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and pledge my life, my fortune, and my sacred honor in defense of the principles of liberty enunciated in our Declaration of Independence, for which our forefathers spilled their blood. We will not let the Republic fall without a fight.

What...say...you?


Molon Labe.

Intolerable Acts II & Merry Christmas


The Stamp Act in 1765 and the Townsend Acts in 1767/68.

Boston Massacre in 1770.

The original Tea Party 1773.

Lexington & Concord 1775.

Declaration of Independence 1776.

Most of you are aware of those events in the timeline, and with many other events that I did not include, pre-dating the Stamp Act and through 1776 that led to When in the course of human events...

In 1992 America voted Bill Clinton into office.

1992 gave us Ruby Ridge. (Under Bush #41)

1993 gave us Waco.

1994 brought us the AWB.

History is repeating itself as you and I live it.  I believe Ruby Ridge, Waco and the AWB were responsible for a great Awakening of many Americans. 

In 1996, in response to the AWB and having freshly witnessed the willingness of the Marxists who had control of our FedGov to use the muzzles of FedGov weapons to slaughter Americans, we voted and for the first time in more than 40 years, we gave the House to the R's.

Only 10 years separated the Stamp Act and John Parker standing on the Green in Lexington.

Today we are about 20 years from those rapid-fire actions taken by our modern FedGov, and in that 20 years we have witnessed our own long train of abuses.  We have also witnessed the gutting of our economy, and most of us agree that our gutting is deliberate.  Patriotic Americans today do not suffer a King, our burden is Marx and his Useful Idiots.

Does it matter that we have waited longer than did John Parker?

I don't think so.  If one chooses to use gun sales since 1992 as an indicator of American sentiment regarding FedGov, one would be forced to conclude that our modern Countrymen are aware of the Beast among us, and have decided that at some point there must be a fight in America again, and once again the fight will be about Liberty

The struggle will boil down to those among us who demand our Liberties without infringement, and those among us who would be Masters.  There is a third party on our field of battle - the masses who stand and cry for continued pillaging and plundering of you and me.  That large group defines their politics by how much is given to them by Government, and nothing else.

We were warned by our Founders and Framers that this time would likely come, despite the work they did to repel the King and establish a system of governance based on personal Liberty.  They warned us to be vigilant.  They warned us about every single abuse we suffer today.

They warned us, knowing that this time would likely come again, to never let the Citizen be disarmed.

Comparing our modern SitRep to that of our Founders & Framers, then ObamaCare must be seen as an Intolerable Act.  It also means that we must be rapidly approaching our own Lexington, for the Enemies of Liberty may well be preparing to send forth among us their swarms to forcefully disarm us and, as with Hancock and Adams, begin arresting or killing the most prominent Patriots of our day.

TL and a few others are working to have another armed march to remind those who would be Masters that there remains a fight between the forces of Liberty and Tyranny.  The surrender of all Americans to absolute Tyranny will not be free.  Will Patriots follow through with a march?  Several have been suggested in recent years and met with dismal support.  If there is a march, will it devolve to our own Boston Massacre or Lexington Green?  More than a year separated Lexington and the DoI.  How much time will pass if this march happens and turns ugly?

Those who would be our Masters will never voluntarily relent in their pursuits.  Will they trigger violence by making the same mistake as did the British headed to Concord in search of the Armory, Hancock and Adams?  Will the final struggle between Liberty and Tyranny (at least in my lifetime) come as a result of modern Intolerable Acts, or as a byproduct of an imploded economy that is imminent?

These coming days that will, hopefully, find you safe, warm and among friends and family, should also be a time for you to quietly answer any serious lingering questions in your mind about the fight for Liberty and your place in this fight.  Also take the time to consider all the ways a Marxist may choose to hurt you or yours should you ever permit yourself to be disarmed.

Reflect upon the acts that had to be taken by our Founders and Framers to win the first time.  Reflect upon the vast sea of American blood that American Tyrants were willing to spill beginning in 1861.  Reflect upon the fact that this country is today filled with hundreds of millions of people who call for you to be imprisoned or murdered for demanding your Natural and Constitutional Rights.

If you want genuine Liberty in your lifetime, you are going to have to fight for it.  You are going to have no choice but to defend the ground beneath your feet.

History is repeating. Let us ensure the outcome is the same for Liberty as it was when our Founders and Framers faced this same fight.

Merry Christmas, Patriots.

D's shooting themselves in the foot?


 I have several topics bouncing around in my head today, none are really worth a full post, so I am going to offer this brief observation.

You know that my first instinct and analysis following Sandy Hook was that the Anti crowd was going to make a hard push to expand the Prohibited Persons list by bringing Mental Health into play, and then use very broad and vague definitions to deny 2A to a large part of the population.  I remain convinced that was also President Obama's instinctive play, and in his speeches following the shootings, he was laying the ground for that play.  (I also think he would win if they go for it fast and hard.)

There were a few typical rumbles about Hi Cap mags and Feinstein dusted her AWB off from her desk drawer.

Then NRA goof spoke on Friday, and it looked like the D's would be receiving the next ban written on NRA letterhead.  Afterall, he openly supported a Mental Health database as an anti-2A tool.

And then, Saturday and Sunday happened.  Powerful D players began recoiling at the notion of using mental health as a 2A tool and began reaching hard for guns - a return to AWB and Hi Cap restrictions, even going much further, daring to drop the word confiscation in several places!  Then they reminded the "Average American" that the Anti crowd is never really doing it for the children as they claim, when they began screaming how insane a concept it is to put armed guards in schools or arm teachers.  That is the moment the D's lost the "Average American".  The "Average American" recognized the common sense of armed guards and teachers versus an Adam Lanza.  In fact, a great number of young adults have grown up with LEO already in their schools, compliments of President Clinton. (Link)

President Obama's play is the smarter political play, in my mind.  By using Mental Health the D's could easily take 2A from 40+ millions of people if they want.  But the old-school D's seem to think they have a mandate to go for outright bans and confiscations!  I can only describe that level of confidence on their part as delusional, an over-reach that simply is not there.  Or, the Optics are gone and they are ready for open war.

The "Average American" is not screaming for 2A restrictions right now.  The "Average American" has already moved past the politics of Sandy Hook, and they are into their holidays.  (MSNBC is doing their best to keep it alive, but all they are doing is raising the prices and sales figures for the gun industry)  The old-school D's seem to forget why they have left Gun Control alone for the last 20 years - because after they crammed Clinton's AWB down the American throat, we ripped them new arses in the mid-terms and gave the House to the R's for the first time in over 40 years! 

We'll see if the President can pull his team back together for the smart (Mental Health) play, or if they continue to over-reach and end up losing their chances on every 2A front.

At this moment, the D cats are not being herded in the proper direction, and that is a surprise I did not expect.  They could have (and may still) made a BIG play on the mental health front, but if I had to place a bet on what is on the table right now, I'd say they are about to blow the entire opportunity.

We shall see...

Enemies of Liberty have no problem targeting political enemies...


I was recently blasted by some Leftist twit regarding my post below about knowing where your local Enemies of Liberty live in your AO.  The idiot thinks "I'm" the dangerous one, while Gannet (they own a LOT of big media) published the name and address of every gun owner in several counties of New York - here's the link

Just what do you think is the rationale and motivation behind the newspaper's public dissemination of this intel?  It is a Targeting Map, and you know it.  The Leftist media is giving Leftist thugs and garbage the directions to their next protest and harassment targets, or for later use for potentially more aggressive actions.

Where's our map?  Where are our IT Pro's who can scrape databases and publish maps from their keyboards?  You could probably make a lot of interesting maps pretty easily, I'm thinking...

More this evening.  I hope everyone is enjoying today with family and you have wonderful days ahead.

Miscellany & Randomness


III Projects continue to evolve smoothly, and our sincere thanks to each and every single one of you who have shown your support.  For you folks at the Citadel and III Arms, I shall forever remain your biggest cheerleader!

Here is a post to read when you get a chance, from A Girl & Her Gun blog.  It speaks of a mother who realized she needed the ability to defend herself and her children.  And then she did something about it.

III Patriots: Stand tall when the Enemies of Liberty attack you.  They will call you a racist.  They will call you a wannabe dictator.  They will call you crazy.  They'll accuse you of being the next Hitler Rising, while denying their own public ties with genuine supremacist fucks!   Then they'll start to get nasty.  And that's just the folks on the political "Right"!  They will never let a fact get in the way of a good lying rant.  But when they are talking about you, it means you are on their radar.  It means you are getting under their skin.  It means you are renting space in their heads, free.  It means they can't defeat you with reason or logic, so they resort to the tactics of the intellectually deficient and defeated.

A very significant portion of the bloggers I am proud to call Allies have added the Rightful Liberty definition offered by Thomas Jefferson to their blogs in recent months.  I thank you all for that show of unity and cohesion.

But have you noticed how many blogs in our "community" are speaking of "Rightful Liberty" these days, posting conversations and explaining all the different ways we are doing it wrong

It's not Rightful Liberty if you don't do X...  It's not Rightful Liberty if you don't do Y...  It's not Rightful Liberty unless you include Z...

Here's an eternal truth about people who are derisive toward serious Patriots who understand that Rightful Liberty is as simple as Jefferson stated: Such people know little Latin, and even less Greek...

Mister Jefferson: Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others...

That is all there is to it.  It's not complicated.  Ignore the Sparklies they offer as attacks, meant to distract you.  Maintain your course and speed.  They know we stand atop the Moral High Ground and they will do anything to try and disrupt your efforts.  Prep.  Train.  Keep your guard up.  Implement your Plan and meet your goals.

PS: I posted recently about White Supremist sites linking this blog.  I warned you all to take my links off your filthy pages.  Kenny posted on the topic the other day, too.  I became aware I was linked by such genetic filth as White racists by the good work of Bill Nye.

You racist fucks linking my work - you have already been warned.  Several of us are researching through your chickenshit screen names and anonymous blogs.  And you disgusting filth who try to hide your racist views in a cloak of Christianity are the most foul sort - but you have bigger problems than me.  I'm coming, and I won't offer another warning.

Why? Fuck you, that's why.


When you need to debate some Marxist regarding "why" you don't need X or Y in your gun locker, here are a few answers below, and the perfect example of the tone you should be taking with every Marxist piece of garbage, on every topic.  Why be hostile?  Because the Marxist claims a Right to infringe your Liberty.  Invasion of Rightful Liberty is not a topic for "Civilized debate and legitimate political differences..."

Invasion of Rightful Liberty justifies an immediate punch in the nose, at least.

The below is a snippet originally offered from Babylon.  I've seen it pop back up in a few places recently, because we have some very bright Patriots among us who know when to remind people that Patriots can have "Talking Points" too.

Q: "Why do you NEED high capacity magazines?"
A: "Because sometimes you have to kill a whole bunch of motherfuckers."


Q: "Why do you NEED armor piercing rounds?"
A: "Because sometimes you have to kill some motherfucker hiding on the other side of a wall."


Q: "Why do you NEED a fifty caliber sniper rifle?"
A: "Because sometimes you have to kill some motherfucker from a kilometer away."


Q: "Why do you NEED a night vision scope?"
A: "Because sometimes you have to kill some motherfuckers in the dark."



Well said.

Practice the responses and the tone.  Use them.  The time for tolerating Marxists is over.

They are killing people in America.

Literally.

Here's the link to the original piece, and at BonnieGadsden's where I saw it a few minutes ago.

It's time to have a conversation...not!


Do you understand what makes a person a Marxist?

Do you understand that Marxism is merely a vehicle, essentially, for transforming a society into a Communist or similar tyrannical society?  Do you understand that Marxists work on a generational timeline - they play the long game? 

Do you understand Marxists now control every level of Government in America, the media, entertainment industry, academia, public education, and nearly every other important aspect of American life?

Most Americans younger than 40, especially if educated in public schools, can't define Marxism or a Marxist for you, and if you mention the word Communism, you'll probably get an eye-roll and immediately be stereotyped as a loon who is talking about a threat that died in the last Century, you know, when that wall fell or somethin'.  Communism has been relegated to that realm of American psyche where live goblins and boogeymen.

You and I - those few of us who do understand - recognize that the enemies among us are pure Marxists.  Yet most Marxists do not understand that the label "Marxist" applies to them.  Most, in fact, would argue angrily that you are wrong to label them as Marxists.

Here's a real-world, working-man's definition of a Marxist: If you believe that the State has the moral authority under any circumstances to take the fruits of labor from one Citizen and give to another, to violate the Natural Law or Constitutional Rights of any Citizen, you are a Marxist.

You may call yourself a Liberal, or a Democrat, an advocate for "Social Justice", even a Republican or Conservative, but if you believe the State, through the force of Law and enforced by the muzzle of a weapon, is entitled to take from one Citizen on behalf of another, you are a Marxist.  Yes, you "Republican Conservatives" who argue the benefits of a Flat Tax versus a Fair Tax, or support "responsible" Gun Control measures, or support "Stop & Frisk" as "reasonable", or quibble about the rate of taxation to support Entitlement Programs, are Marxists.

You, Marxist, support the violation of the Natural and Constitutional Rights of the Individual.

Own it.

Patriots: When you hear our politicians or "countrymen" call for a "conversation" regarding the Rights embodied in Natural or Constitutional Laws, you know you are dealing with a Marxist.

These "conversations" were all had, and decided, long ago by our Founders and Framers.

There is nothing to discuss regarding "...what type of Society we want to be..." or any of the other innocuous phrases these people use, as if by simple Town Council votes they may violate Constitutional or Natural Laws.  That question, Counselor, was asked and answered by men with names like Jefferson and Parker and Franklin and Madison.

Changing the base nature of American society by majority rule simply isn't how it works, no matter how many times Marxists say so.

But the Marxists among us, those domestic enemies about whom we were warned long ago, intend to make a move soon and be rid of the final remnants of individualism in America.  They are already dropping the "Optics".  In many actions they move even before they pass a supporting law.  They are, almost universally, responsible for violence in our politics, and have been for more than 100 years.

They are coming hard, soon.  You are in their way.  They see you as an insignificant pestilence that needs to simply be eradicated in the near future.

I was mistaken.  There is one conversation we need to have - we Patriots.  And we are having this conversation right now, all over our country in small groups.  We are having the conversation at gun shops and gun shows in every single nook and cranny of our country.  In fact, we are having this conversation in the open, and you are reading part of it right now.

Real Americans will not bend knee to Marxists or any other tyrants.  Ever.  That conversation has been over for hundreds of years.

And whatever that means to you as a Marxist...that's going to be your problem.

When did Americans begin asking permission of Marxists for our Natural Rights?


What happened at Sandy Hook would never have happened in America but for the generations of work performed by Bad People.  Adam Lanza had a broken brain.  He murdered his mother and others.  At the first sign of LEO, he ate a bullet, thankfully sparing other children who surely would have been added to the list of dead.

But for generations Bad People have been working tirelessly and investing fortunes in their goals of disarming Americans, making us defenseless.  People who infringe the Second Amendment are more responsible for those dead children than even Adam Lanza, for the Gun Control groups and individuals who forced adult teachers and staff to remain unarmed in the face of a man with a broken brain and a rifle. 

The answer to many is "Take away the guns!"

And I ask you, what will be the cry when it is not a single 20-year-old with a broken brain who enters that school, but 6 or 8 armed men seeking Allah's embrace, entering the school by twos at several locations (first capping the NRA "Guard") before advancing on the classrooms in a trained, methodical sweep?

Andrew Cuomo, sitting Governor of New York, has spoken words that risk war in America.  Cuomo said in the NYTimes: “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option..."  It's linked, read it for yourself.

Governor Cuomo and every Marxist in our midst like him, from the watered-down Liberal to the self-identified American Communist, who all agree that the State is entitled to the fruits of your labor at the muzzle of a weapon, are responsible for the deaths in Sandy Hook, and for the death of every victim of crime who has ever abided the law and allowed himself to be disarmed.

Americans are patient and tolerant people.  Sometimes, too patient for our own good, as we permit diseased Souls to spread cancer within our society.  But real Americans are growing very near the point we refuse to tolerate and obey the Marxists among us. 

Yes, you are a Marxist if you believe the State has a Right to the fruits of another person's labor, enforced by the muzzle of a weapon, for any reason.  It does not matter if you call yourself a Democrat, or a Liberal, a Socialist, a Republican or Conservative.  If you believe the State may violate the Natural Rights of any individual, you are an Enemy of Liberty.

I am not going to argue why Americans are by Right of birth entitled to any firearm they wish to own.  You either understand it, or you never will.  Perhaps "never" is too strong a word.  Perhaps you will understand when the next Mao or Stalin is not Chinese or Russian, but an American.

Sandy Hook would never happen at the Citadel community.  (There is a new post over at their blog)

For every Enemy of Liberty I will simply leave you with the words of William Lloyd Garrison.

He spoke specifically of the sin of Slavery.  I use his words to the broader collection of all Natural Rights of Man:

With reasonable men I will reason; with humane men I will plea; but to tyrants I will give no quarter, nor waste arguments where they will certainly be lost.

NRA: Grow Government to keep kids safe...


"The greatest gun control organization that ever existed".

That's how a real Patriot I know describes the NRA.

If you saw that NRA press conference, you know he's right.

NRA did nothing to advance the cause of 2A today, and they called for larger Government at the same time.

Over at the Congress we've been discussing the notion of a "Real" 2A organization - no insult intended to JPFO or GoA or SAF.

Right now is not the time to duck and cover regarding 2A, waiting for the storm to blow over.  Now is the time to stand tall and push back and point out that anti-gunners are truly responsible for murdering those children.  We need to be demanding full restoration of 2A, right now - not hoping they'll "let" hi caps remain for sale.

Roll back GCA and NFA and let's stop begging for the permission of Marxists for our Natural and Constitutional Rights.

Brock finds another gem...


Brock links to people I would never find on my own.  I have added this one to the Blogroll below - she deserves a daily visit.

Here's the piece I just read.

As you read it, as you are reminded why an American shall be armed, also remember two important truths that will never be affirmed by your Tyrants: One - You (We the People) are ultimately responsible for determining the Constitutionality of a law, not the Supreme Court or any majority of your Countrymen or anyone else on Earth.  You.

Two: The reason to remain armed is to use the damned thing when you are oppressed, the moment you are oppressed, where you are oppressed, and then move on with your day!

If you are not going to use that AR15 - why should they bother banning them???!!!

They are NOT afraid of you, even with all of your gear.

If you don't have the courage to defend YOUR Liberty, get off the damned field so we can see who we are really dealing with, who is really standing to be counted, in these dangerous days.

Remember your Zoomie:


When you are finished reading the above links, consider this snippet from another column, then go read the entire thing.  This woman writes as I wish I could.

~~

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. [Declaration of Independence]

We have been ignored too long, but we will not be silent. We will continue from now until November and beyond. We the people will recover our nation. We will not quit. We are resolved to give our last breath in the defense of Liberty. It is time America, to declare that these princes and their King are unfit to be rulers of a free people. It is time America, to put Liberty FIRST. It is time America to reclaim the once great nation our founders sacrificed all to give to us. It is time America to determine that we will once again be a government of the people, by the people and for the people. It is time America, to save our children from the burdens of tyranny and the price to be paid for Liberty. It is time to continue to identify the hypocrites and cowards. It is time to support TRUE CONSTITUITONAL CONSERVATIVES, ones who have proven themselves by actions, not by idle words. It is time to fire the rest of them, regardless of their personality, their former occupations, or their charming good looks. Do we want Liberty or do we want slavery. The choice is just that simple, because it is NOT about the money.

Breathe


I'm watching many people getting very worked up in anticipation of what may come regarding 2A.

You see the wording in the California Senator's plan, you have to understand it has been the same for years, sitting in her drawer, just waiting for the proper moment when she thinks she can do something with it - even if that "something" involves little more than verbal political points.

I'm not saying that 2A isn't going to take a ding - it may.  NRA is not going to hold the line - that's not their role in this charade.  House R's will be given a pass by NRA to vote "sensibly".

What I am saying is this: Every single one of you has been prepping for this eventuality.  Not this "possibility", but the eventual day when they would make another move against your 2A.  Many of you have made written statements on our blogs what you will or will not tolerate. 

Why get excited now?  Why act as if they sky is unexpectedly falling?

You knew they were coming. 

They told you they were coming.  They've been telling Americans since 1934.

Yet in the 2+ years I've been writing online, I still haven't seen a coordinated, logical plan of action for this day come together.  I've seen some good plans, all pushaw'd by someone, never to congeal.  Why a plan has never been able to congeal is a topic for a long discussion, one day.  It has been discussed by some, for a while, who saw the truth.  And now you should see why the games were being played.

For those of you who have been ignoring Bill Nye, perhaps you're hearing that little voice in the back of your head right now: You are alone.  That's how it will be.

Talk of an armed march started at TL's place last week.  It's now been endorsed by Sipsey - which is funny on several levels.

You do realize, don't you, the march to turn in AR15's will be larger and faster than the march to keep them, don't you?

You think I'm being Doom & Gloom and pissing in the cheerios?  You're mistaken.  I simply never lied to myself - I knew they'd be coming, one day.  That day draws near.  It may be tomorrow, or next month, or sometime in 2014.  So what?  You're only worried if you haven't been serious about this day, or you are afraid you'll actually be called upon to live your rhetoric.

Breathe.  Hold the Line.  Stay your course.  If they mean to have a war...

Not one more inch, huh?


A question was posed by a member of my Tribe that is the premise for this post.

Are you any closer today to stepping off the porch than yesterday?

The likely outcome of the coming push is likely to be minor as relates to the mechanics of firearms: Maybe they get a Hi-Cap mag ban.  Feinstein's AWB is DOA if Congress has to vote.

Where the real damage is likely to come into the picture is by expanding the pool of "Prohibited Persons" under the "Mental Health" banner.  Maybe you'll need a "Mental Health" permission slip from the local ObamaCare office.

If any of this comes to pass, are you going to war?

What if under the ObamaCare/2A Mental Health rules, if you've ever been prescribed an Ambien, you must surrender your collection and go through a hearing (maybe ATF, maybe a court, maybe an ObamaCare Mental Health Review) to get your collection back and buy more in the fuiture?

What if they do ban hi cap mags and they do NOT grandfather yours into the mix, making possession a Felony?

Kissing the wife and going to War?  If so, with whom?

What if they get a whole new AWB?  You get to keep what you have now, but no new sales, no transfers.  Going to war?  Again, with whom?

Does it matter if Congress signs off?  What if Congress refuses, and an EO is used?  Going to war in any instance?

Gonna throw a brick?

Every single one of you who have chanted "...not one more inch..." are about to go to war or be proven as liars and cowards.

I don't think the Marxists care either way.  Their arithmetic says you'll just take it, just like at the airport.  Their arithmetic also says if anyone leaves the porch, they'll be swatted like gnats, and they will have public opinion on their side.

These questions are for you to consider.  Please don't answer stupidly here in public.  If I get too many dumb replies, I'll just turn Comments off.

Now & Then


Your exterminator says: "You have rats, but they stay in the basement and walls for the most part."

Modern American Man: "Whew!  Well, as long as they are just in the walls and basement, leave 'em be."

Your wife says: "Honey, I took one of those home test kits - we have bedbugs!"

Modern American Man: "Whew!  We can live with that.  Just change the sheets more frequently - like once a month, or something."

At the airport the modern American man watches his wife get fondled by TSA - the Agent actually looks a bit embarassed.  The modern American man say: "No worries, I like to watch anyway."

The Oncologist looks at you and your wife and gives the bad news.  "I'm sorry, Mrs. X, you have breast cancer.  If we get started right away, we can probably save them both."

The modern American man: "Thanks anyway, Doc.  No need to spend the money - I'm an ass-guy anyway."

.Gov passes a law that you may not have full auto or a rifle with a short barrel without their permission, and hi cap mags are out.

Modern American man: "Whew"  I still get to keep my 10/22, right sir?"

John Parker: "Click, Click, Boom!"

When you let your Enemies define the debate...


...you've already lost.

The current gun debate is taking shape as semi-auto is bad.  Hi cap is bad.  Blah, blah...

Where is our side that says: No, you may not have my 10" AR select-fire.

Where is our side that says: I bought this sweet CNC so I can build my own M2, and no you can't have it.

Where is our side that says: Shall not be infringed...and fuck you for trying.

Until we stop fighting the enemies fight on the enemies turf, we are destined to forever fail.

No guns, eh Comrade?

This is mine. Stay the Fk out!


If that little fella above is me, and the circle represents my Rightful Liberty - stay out of the f'n circle.

I get to do anything I want to do inside my circle, so long as what I am doing doesn't futz with you in your circle.

Yep, you have the exact same circle.  We all do.

Here's how Jefferson explained the entire concept: Rightful Liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.

Imagine if everyone stayed inside their own circles - we'd never have any problems. 

But in all times there will be men who mean to be Masters - and they claim the right to penetrate your circle and make you behave as they command.

And that's when we start killing one another.  Or, some people just let Bad People do anything they wish, without defending their circle.  That's their choice.

I'm sorry if I just wasted time for some of you.  Most of you get the concept of Rightful Liberty and don't need the cartoon-class graphic or first-grader slow articulation and mono-syllabic words.

My circle is mine.  Stay out of it.

Where does your SEIU guy live?


Do you remember when the SEIU bussed hundreds of protestors to the DC area home of the BofA General Counsel?

I know most of you have done at least some Opposition Research in your AO, should it ever be needed, just as you've mapped out where allies live, in case they ever need you at their backs.

Question: Does a website exist where Enemies of Liberty have been databased, including their employers, office titles, whatever foul things they do to injure the Constitution, home addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, et cetera?

I remember an offshore site did that related to American abortionists for a while.

Do you know if any such wide-ranging database exists now for Team Liberty?

Any lawyer who can weigh-in on whether or not such a simple database would earn a Stack?

Anyone who has a job with access to certain databases has an opportunity to do a LOT of work for Liberty.

Does anyone see any reason such a batabase should not be built and maintained publicly?

Our enemies already have us mapped and listed by order of priority, I'd bet my arse.

III Congress: Real 2A Fighting


These are 18 of the dead children murdered by Adam Lanza and hundreds of millions of others.

The 'Others' are all those politicians and special interest groups who advocate and impose infringements on 2A.  'Others' are every single voter who ever voted for any of those politicians.  'Others' include NRA and the other pro-2A groups that, time and again, are willing to trade a bit of our Liberty in a political deal.

I've thought for a long time this country could use a serious, real pro-2A organization with a real 'zero-tolerance' platform.   NFA and GCA and AWB and every other infringing gun law on the books are direct and treasonous attacks upon the Constitution and the Liberty of Americans.

What good would another pro-2A group do?  Get on the soapbox?  Hand out flyers?  Make speeches?  Accept dues and try to put pressure on politicians to trade away less Liberty next election cycle?  I would find another such pro-2A group to be just another circle-jerk, and a waste of my time.

So - what would you suggest a real no compromise 2A organization would do?

What could such an organization do to truly challenge the unconstitutional laws in the land?

Short of someone being willing to break a law, get raided and put in prison for 10 or 20 years, what sorts of real actions could be taken that would make such a pro-2A group better than NRA, GOA, SAF, JPFO?

Think about it.  Please don't submit any comments that are clearly illegal, like: "Let's buy a guy a CNC and make stuff in our basements for sale!"

Do you think the country is ready to test the Firearms Freedom Act in Wyoming, Montana or one of the other states that has passed the law, the way Colorado is testing the limits of pot?

Answer here, then catch up on the III Congress here.

The Politics in play...


Holly made an interesting observation about the hypocrisy and the politics in play at the moment over Sandy Hook.

We'll be pummelled on every station for 2 weeks with relentless images of weeping people, little teddy bears and flowers piled on curbs, candle vigils, and small coffins, while bombarded by calls for disarmament of Americans.

Yet the American People are not permitted to see the load after load of dead Countrymen coming home in their coffins.

If you fall for the hyperbole and righteous indignation of the media and the politicians for a single moment, you can't be helped.

Painting with broad brushstrokes...


**UPDATE**  I think Janos took this response personally as a rebuke.  It was not meant as such.  He's now closed his III blog.  Too bad, he was smarter than the average bear.

~~

One of the down sides to blogging for any length of time with a smart audience is that conversations between people can continue for months (or longer) across dozens (or more) Posts & Threads.

Janos fell victim to that earlier regarding my position on who is and who is not a legitimate Target in a WROL or SHTF paradigm.  I have written 2-3 posts in the last week or so touching on the topic of legitimate Targets.  However, because we have been discussing this topic for years on this blog, and even longer at WRSA, there has been a LOT of ground already covered, positions articulated and properly nuanced so that everyone who has been part of the conversation from the beginning know when I am writing in my style of shorthand.  Anyone reading only my recent posts on this topic could easily walk away aghast at my ruthless targeting matrix.

Since I am writing very little philosophically these days as I focus on the building & doing for Liberty, I did indeed write about my targeting matrix with broad brush strokes, in shorthand with a LOT of nuance between the lines that a reader would only properly understand if he'd been along for the entire ride.  My targeting matrix conversation actually began with my first book, before I started writing on Kerodin.com, then on the Kerodin site, here on this blog prolifically, and at places like WRSA and TL's place.

I'm not going to take the time to drill to bedrock on this topic again, it is too complex to properly articulate in a few posts.  But I can share the summary of my position.  If anyone is interested in understanding how I reached my conclusions, simply use the Search feature on the right toolbar.

Upon my conception I inherited Rightful Liberty.

No man or woman is entitled to ANY of my Rightful Liberty, unless I offer it for some reason.

Any man or woman who deliberately infringes upon my Rightful Liberty immediately gets green-lighted on my Targeting Matrix.  If I know a person wants to infringe, and may one day succeed, that person earns a place in my Matrix.  If I know a person wants to infringe but simply will not ever be able to actually do damage, that person stays off my RADAR.

I believe that preemptive action is warranted once I satisfy my Soul that an attack is imminent, or may seriously become imminent - and because I am smaller than most men.  I'm just not going to wait for him to bloody my nose or pull his handgun. 

I do NOT believe in Proportional Response.

Rightful Liberty matters to me, and I do not tolerate infringements.

I do believe in mens rea.  I also impose a very strict personal code upon myself and my Threat Matrix.  That said - I fight to prevail, by any means necessary.  And for full disclosure, I don't like getting hit.

I also believe in Constitutional and legal remedies, when they are available to me.

I don't really care how anyone else protects their Rightful Liberty, so long as it is being done in accord with the premise of Rightful Liberty as well.  I don't really care if anyone else permits intrusions, or allows himself to become a slave.  Not my business if you give away your Liberty, or trade it away for an FSA chit, or you permit someone to take it from you.

But when it comes to my Rightful Liberty, I am on solid moral footing by invoking self defense - even if that self-defense includes me hitting the guy in the back with a Chevy.

To Janos specifically: You explain in your comment that many of your neighbors have been known to you nearly your entire life, and that they would take a bullet for your kids.

But if they vote Blue or Establishment Red, they are voting your children into slavery, they are infringing my Rightful Liberty, which is not tolerated in most cases.  A "Good Person" does not pull a lever for a Slave Master.  There is no such thing as a "Good Person" who votes Blue or Establishment Red.  There is no such thing as a "Good Person" who works at City Hall if that person's job facilitates, in any manner, the infringement of my Rightful Liberty.

I hope this helps you understand that I have done much, much more work on this topic over the years than simply the recent posts which do not define how & why I add certain people to the Matrix, or what threat level they earn, or the severity of my self defense, and I have it refined to a place in which I am content.

So, as say the Spartans, when anyone wants my Liberties:

Blame? Many bloody hands in Connecticut


Politicians like to play the blame game.  Mayor Bloomberg thinks Citizens should not have firearms, so he blames every firearm-related crime on the availability of firearms.

OK.

Ready for the truth?  Some of you may not like it.

Many millions of people have the blood of those children on their hands tonight.  You know some of those people, I guarantee it.  Some of you may even dismiss my reasoning so you can continue to live in denial that some of your "friends" or "family" or co-workers are responsible for the deaths of defenseless children.  Some of you will dismiss my reasoning because in your deepest heart you know that your tolerance of these "friends" and "family" and co-workers means you have some blood on your hands, too.

You are not alone.  I have a bit of the blood of those children on my hands as well, because I have tolerated infringements upon my Liberty.  .Gov has a set of rules relating to firearms for me, and I play by the rules.  I stay inside the lines.  I comply with their demands. 

Every single Gun Control advocate in America, living and dead, has blood of innocent children from Connecticut on their hands.  Every single man who votes Establishment R, every single Soccer Mom who votes Blue, are responsible for those dead children.  Are you ready for the harshest, yet most truthful statement you'll hear about those dead children?

Most of their parents are responsible for the deaths of their babies.

Most of those parents probably voted to disarm the teachers entrusted to protect their children.

It is their own fault.

Those children are dead because Americans have allowed themselves to be disarmed in a world that has mentally broken people in it.  Adam Lanza had a broken brain.  He pulled the trigger.  But millions of Americans helped make it easy for him.  Americans have permitted - indeed demanded in many cases - that law-abiding Citizens be disarmed in a world that has violent criminals and rapists and child murderers in it.

How many of those parents voted Blue do you think?  Or Establishment R?  How many do you think might be NRA Fudds who are fine with an AWB, as long as they can keep their pretty side-by-side?  Their babies are dead right now because instead of allowing the adults who are responsible for the safety of those children, (in loco parentis) most of those parents probably voted for politicians who voted for laws that disarmed the teachers in that school.  Let them own that fact.  Their children are dead because of laws many of them probably supported.  Words have meaning.  Votes have consequences.

That neighbor friend of yours who votes Blue, you know the one you are polite with and still do cookouts together, has blood on his hands.  And you choose to associate with such people?

In my first book I made a plea to rational Patriots to drop the facade and stop treating the Marxists in your life as if they are just people with different political views, and those differences are legitimate.  Simple fact, folks: Establishment Rs and Blue Dog Ds and Liberals are all flavors of Marxists, nothing more.

That Blue voter makes sure your children go into a free-fire zone every day you send them to school.  Those Blue voters make sure you are defenseless in most places, at most times, if a Bad Man with a gun decides to open fire.  Those Blue politicians have bloody hands.  The Establishment Rs are right there with them. 

When will you stop being polite to people who are actively working to enslave you and make it easier to murder your children?  When will you tell that Obama-supporting Milfy Blue lass at your kid's soccer game to eat shit and die when she smiles politely at you and says hello?  When will you stop trying to coexist with people who think it is fair to put a muzzle against your head if you resist paying your fair share for ObamaCare?

When will you stop tolerating the Enemy, and letting him get blood on your hands?

Think about it.
