Because as we’ve just seen (again) a few days ago, the major players are still not only ignoring the truth about this story, they are actively abetting the lie—even introducing hate into the mix is not beneath them. And Mike and I have known throughout that we don’t have time to be polite or quiet or patient, because people’s lives and careers have quite literally been on the line throughout this unfolding story.

"Jeff Knox wrote an interesting piece the other day titled Attention Lamestream Media: I am the 'gun lobby'. It was positively cheerworthy. I, too, get irritated with the way the nefarious 'Gun Lobby' is portrayed in the media. I personally know several of the people in the Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance (GOCRA) who were instrumental in getting the Minnesota Citizens' Personal Protection Act (our 'shall-issue' law) passed, and I met some of the opposition, including Heather Martens, the Executive Director of Citizens for a Safer Minnesota (CSM)…"

"In October, I posted a graphic developed by Rob Vance that showed the progress in the growth of firearms carry rights from 1986 through 2011 as a percentage of the U.S. population. In 1986, 90% of the U.S. population lived in states that severely restricted carry rights or had none at all. Today, over two-thirds of Americans live in states with either shall-issue carry or constitutional carry. The conclusion was that shall-issue is the new norm."

"Recently, the FBI released its Uniform Crime Reports statistics. Rob generated a new graph plotting these violent crime rates against the growth of less-restrictive
 

National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012. What does it do, or not do? More importantly, does it constitute a declaration of war on the people?

... "Here's my conclusion: If anybody in the government, at any level of government, starts raiding American citizens' homes, putting black bags over their heads and carrying them off without due process, then the shooting begins whether they have a law that says they can or not. That's just a fact. Nothing repeals your natural, God-given and inalienable rights. No more free Wacos."

"So, my advice? Until you actually see the whites of the raid parties eyes, don't start shooting. No Fort Sumters. ..."

"In the meantime, do what you should have been doing all along -- preparing. Training. Fitness. Logistics. Planning defensive strategies for your local area."

"You might assume that revolution brews here in the 'Homeland,' given Our Rulers’ paranoia: both the House and Senate have passed the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA); the bill requires only Obummer’s signature by December 26 to destroy the venerable, infinitely precious right of habeas corpus. Thereafter, the president may declare American citizens 'terrorists' with no evidence whatsoever and imprison them indefinitely."

"The NDAA implies that the heavily armed sociopaths in office fear us pistol-packin’ serfs. And while the legislation justifies their phobia by painting taxpayers as terrorists, that’s merely Leviathan’s excuse. ... Always and forever, the State equates slavery with safety." ...

Was there some excess smoking and drinking in there too? Have you slacked off on the exercise over these last couple decades?"

"The UN Arms Trade Treaty sprang from an initiative by then Foreign Secretary Jack Straw in September 2004. Impelled, perhaps, by the irony of being part of a Labour government that was presiding over wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the treaty Straw called for will likely be adopted in July 2012. Today, British NGOs are among the treaty’s most vociferous advocates, with Oxfam calling with monotonous regularity for a 'bulletproof Arms Trade Treaty.'"

"In the US, the treaty is controversial primarily because it might affect rights protected under the Second Amendment to the Constitution ... If the treaty gets as far as the Senate, Second Amendment concerns will likely scuttle it there." ...
