Just how much can the ~Gun Grabbers~ really do?

Just how much can the ~Gun Grabbers~ really do?

Other than run their heads, look stupid and scare people, just how much do the gun grabbers really think they can do? Just what can they actually accomplish?

How many gun owners are there in the United States of America?

Most estimates range between 39% and 50% of US households having at least one gun (that’s about 43-55 million households). The estimates for the number of privately owned guns range from 190 million to 300 million. Removed those that skew the stats for their own purposes the best estimates are about 45% or 52 million of American households owning 260 million guns). SOURCE

Almost half of the homes in America are gun owners according to that little statistic.

Given the fact that many of those households are at least *2 person homes* and assuming that they are quite likely to have more than one gun per household, I would say that these are conservative figures.

Suppose the current Attorney General, Eric Holder, were to issue an edict ordering ALL Americans to turn in their guns? Suppose *The One* forces our lawmakers into reinstating the AWB? Suppose Obama and Holder decide to enter a period of Totalitarianism and take full control of the citizens of this nation?

Who is going to enforce this edict? The BATF?? The FBI?? Maybe the Army or the National Guard? Maybe State, County/Parish or Local police??

I wouldn’t put it past the FBI or BATF to try, they are nothing more than Federal automatons anyway. They will blindly follow the orders of *The One* and sacrifice themselves in the process.

Our Army and National Guard, as well as our police forces, are made up of regular, every day *Joe’s* and *Jane’s*, folks just like you and me. They work, they live, they have families, they pay taxes and they are just all around plain folks. Most of them are *sport* shooters. Many of them are hunters. Many of them have friends and families that are shooters and hunters, people that are simply *sportsmen*.

I have absolutely NO faith of any kind when it comes to the depravity of our federal government and their minions in suits at the various *Alphabet* Agencies! None!

I do, on the other hand, have great faith in our soldiers and police officers, and their desire to stand by the American people, their homes, their families and friends! I do have the greatest confidence that they will honor their oath to ‘defend against ALL enemies, both foreign AND domestic’. I have total faith that our troops and law enforcement personnel will easily recognize the enemies of this nation for exactly WHO, and WHAT they are.

But suppose they don’t? What are they going to do with roughly 100 MILLION Americans that are gun owners and users? People that have absolutely NO intention of giving those weapons up? As our forefathers said in their day, “Live FREE or DIE?, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately? and more recently, “Death before dishonor?.

The time is rapidly approaching America. Do we sit idly by? Do we engage in some pacifist type of peaceful protest in support of the 2nd Amendment by sacrificing ourselves to the fools on point in D.C. as we show our unarmed support for the 2A? Or do we stand as FREE men and women and fight for our freedom once again? Fight against those that DO intend on disarming this nation and taking us from being citizens to subjects?

My personal view is this: ‘I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death’, and given the fact that our military has taken so long to almost pacify Iraq, and has yet to pacify Afghanistan, nations approximately the size of Texas, if WE, The People don’t lay down and roll over, if WE, The People don’t willingly lay down our guns, HOW IN THE HELL is any of this going to happen to the gun owners of the U.S.A.? The asshats in D.C. need to remember who they work for, We, The People put them in office, We, The People can damn sure remove them from office too!

These are serious points to ponder and I hope this post generates much thought and many comments!

Guard to pull out of New Orleans after 3 1/2 years

Guard to pull out of New Orleans after 3 1/2 years

NEW ORLEANS (AP) – Three and a half years after Hurricane Katrina, the National Guard is pulling the last of its troops out of New Orleans this weekend, leaving behind a city still desperate and dangerous. Residents long distrustful of the city’s police force are worried they will have to fend for themselves.

“I don’t know if crime will go up after these guys leave. But I know a lot more of us will be packing our own pieces now to make sure we’re protected,” said Calvin Stewart, owner of a restaurant and store.

New Orleans Police Superintendent Warren Riley said his rebuilt police department is up to the job of protecting the city. “I think we’re ready to handle things,” he said.

The National Guardsmen were welcomed as liberators when they arrived in force in a big convoy more than four days after Katrina struck New Orleans in August 2005 and plunged the city into anarchy. The force was eventually 15,000 strong.

Guard to pull out of New Orleans after 3 1/2 years

I am going to say something that some may find to be offensive, oh well.

New Orleans Police Superintendent Warren Riley is the dumbest son of a bitch to EVER wear a badge and gun. Riley couldn’t find his own ass with both hands, a set of directions and a Garmin GPS unit!

The National Guardsmen were welcomed as liberators when they arrived in force in a big convoy more than four days after Katrina struck New Orleans in August 2005 and plunged the city into anarchy. The force was eventually 15,000 strong.

When Hurricane Ike hit a few months ago, there was a hefty influx of Guardsmen to the NOLA area, my Son and his unit were part of that buildup. They took on patrol and law enforcement duties, many of them are certified officers on various departments in Louisiana and this was a life saver to the folks of Jefferson and Orleans parishes. Once it was a certainty that Ike wasn’t going to play havoc with New Orleans, most of the Guard troops were released back to their own parishes, some of which were impacted by Ike.

New Orleans had 210 murders in 2007, making it the murder capital of America, with the highest per-capita rate in the country. That number dropped to 179 in 2008.

Nevertheless, “crime continues to be this community’s No. 1 concern. Even with the lower numbers it is still unacceptably high,” said Rafael Goyeneche, executive director of the Metropolitan Crime Commission.

The very thought that the NOPD will be able to control crime without the help of the Guard or the Louisiana State Police is laughable at best! New Orleans has been on the verge of out of control for a very long time, pre-Katrina. New Orleans today is still one of the most dangerous cities in America. The exit of the Louisiana Army National Guard will not do anything to help that problem. All one has to do to understand the WHY of New Orleans crime problems is to simply look at what serves as leadership in the City of New Orleans, *Chocolate* Ray Nagin and his *Yes Man*, Warren Riley.

God help the decent people of New Orleans, they are seriously going to need all the help they can get now!

A recap of our 1st month under Obama

February 27th, 2009 . by TexasFred

A recap of our 1st month under Obama

This was sent to me via email from one of my dedicated readers and fellow Texan, Mr. Chuck. I hope you enjoy these insightful observations.

Let’s Recap regarding Obama

1. The American people elect a black president with a total of 42 days experience as a U S Senator from the most politically corrupt state in America whose governor is ousted from office. The President’s first official act is to close Gitmo and make sure terrorists civil rights are not violated.

2. The U.S. Congress rushes to confirm a black Attorney General, Eric Holder, whose law firm we later find out represents seventeen Gitmo Terrorists.

3. The CIA Boss, Leon Panetta with absolutely no experience, has a daughter Linda we find out, that is a true radical anti-American activist who is a supporter of all the Anti-American regimes in the western hemisphere.

4. We got the most corrupt female in America as Secretary of State; bought and paid for. Hillary Clinton.

5. We got a Tax Cheat for Treasury Secretary who files his own taxes. Timmy Geithner.

6. 2 Commerce Secretary nominees who withdrew due to corruption charges and conflicts of interest. Judd Gregg and Bill Richardson

7. A Tax cheat nominee for Chief Performance Officer who withdrew under charges. Nancy Killefer

8. A Labor Secretary nominee that faced charges of unethical conduct, over her husband’s unpaid business taxes. Hilda Solis

9. A HHS Secretary nominee that withdrew under charges of cheating on his taxes. Tom Daschle

And that’s just the first month… But who’s counting?

America is being run by the modern-day Three Stooges ~ Barrack, Nancy, and Harry ~ and they are still trying to define stimulus. And the Republican Party is sitting around with its thumb up its ass saying duh.

Stimulus is where the government gives a smidgen of your tax dollars back to you making you feel so good about yourself [stimulated] that you want to run out to Wal-Mart and buy a new Chinese-made HDTV and go home and watch Telemundo!
