"I don’t understand why you self defense whackos are so concerned about how AHSA elects its directors or our how the organizations finances work. We value quality over mere quantity and let me asure you there are plenty of very wealthy “progressive” gunowners out there who understand AHSA’s mission. You know, NRA in over 100 years has only signed up about 4 million of the 70 million gun ownres out there and it’s not like the other 66 million gun owners have not heard from the NRA- clearly a huge majority of gun owners have rejected NRA’s message."

So per Mr Rickers (if they are his) comments those concerned about self defense are wackos, also he implies, that they really don't want common folks to be members, so are they elitist?
In truth getting more than about 5% of any one interest group involved is really pretty tough.
& it should be pointed out that the NRA has had well 4 million members in the last 137 years.
The current standing is around 4 million.

Hmm passed laws to control that very thing, after 9/11 & it not working, but we can pass gun control laws that will stop bad guys & crazies, & they will work???
Well gun bans don't stop crime

"The man and an accomplice, wearing ski masks and waving machetes, stormed into a club in a western Sydney suburb shortly before 9 p.m. Wednesday and yelled at patrons to lie down as they tried to rob the cash register, police said Thursday."

In this case alert citizens did stop the crime
They will not be disarmed

"police suspect the wound was administered with a spork."

The bad guys will always find a weapon, laws only disarm those willing to abide by the law
8 shot in LA

Police said the gunbattle involved members of a notorious gang entrenched in that area for decades.

There is not a law in the country, or one that can be passed that will disarm these people

Do you have a legal right to own a gun?
Nearly three out of four Americans — 73% — believe the Second Amendment spells out an individual right to own a firearm, according to a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of 1,016 adults taken Feb. 8-10.
It seeems to scare some of the sheep, including the gov.

DEKALB, Ill. (AP) "Some people can't stand to look at it,"
Another Gun Free Zone

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Police say a man fatally shot four people at a public housing complex in downtown Bristol, Tenn., before apparently committing suicide.

There does seem to be a trend, and most public housing has a ban on firearms
John Stossel

"As for the first option, "carefully controlling guns," how many shootings at schools or malls will it take before we understand that people who intend to kill are not deterred by gun laws? Last I checked, murder is against the law everywhere. No one intent on murder will be stopped by the prospect of committing a lesser crime like illegal possession of a firearm. "

Very good article go read the rest of it

The whining is getting louder

Police say he was in the wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong person. They believe his companion, who was killed, was a gang member involved in a turf battle.

Yeah he & his friend were outstanding members of the neighborhood, & I bet the guys that shot them were to.

The entire article should be viewed with a grain of salt

"We can end the war"
You can only end a war, when one side or the other surrenders, or both sides agree to a truce. Pulling all the troops out of the sandbox, does not mean the war will be ended, if our enemies want to continue. It simply means the the front lines won't be in Baghdad, they will be in Springfield or Atlanta

"We can save the planet"
We only take up a small portion of the earth, perhaps the plan is to use those troops no longer fighting to force everyone else to their part on Earth Day?

"We can fix the Environment"
Wow I'm impressed that we have more power than mother nature, it's her gig, & anything we do to "fix" it will look silly compared to her power, What was painted on the bottom of the titanic

"We can fix the Economy"
The government has never been able to fix the economy, Reagan knew that, companies that employ people, can do a lot for the economy, but not when you tie their hands behind their backs & tell they have to hop on one leg. Wages are not the real reason the companys move overseas.

But if we are to believe all of these promises, perhaps we can all have 4 day work weeks, with 5 days pay, & free Cherry Pie on fridays!

Castle Doctrine Coming to Ohio?

I received your e-mail regarding House Bill 264, commonly referred to as the “Castle Doctrine”. Thank you for sharing your support for this issue with me.

As a law-abiding gun owner myself, I am greatly concerned with any issue facing gun owners’ rights in Ohio. You can continue to count on me to preserve and advance the rights of law-abiding gun owners in Ohio. My goal is to have House Bill 264 passed out of the Ohio House by the end of March. However, I cannot speak for the Governor and would suggest contacting his office as to whether or not he supports this legislation.

Again, thank you for writing. If I can be of any further assistance, please contact my office.

Anti-Gunners launch campaign to stop Best Selling pro-gun Book
Weeks ago the Second Amendment Foundation revealed that America Fights Back: Armed Self-Defense in a Violent Age by Alan Gottlieb and Dave Workman is the book anti-gunners don't want you to read.
Buy America Fights Back Now!

Now the anti-gun campaign to stop sales of this book on has clearly surfaced in a so-called "review" by one Arthur Hayhoe of Wesley Chapel, Florida. In a poorly-worded critique littered with spelling errors, Hayhoe declares the book to be "a rehash of all the old and very stale gun lobby arguements (sic)" and further insists that "There is no evidence concealed carry has reduced crime anywhere."
Hayhoe, to aid their "ban the book" campaign gives a rating (or ranting) read by thousands of potential buyers as poor as his spelling to America Fights Back, but here's what he DOESN'T say:
Arthur Hayhoe is the executive director of a group calling itself the Florida Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, Inc., a well funded anti-gun organization that has received grant funding from the extremist Americans for Gun Safety. AGS is a Trojan horse gun control group that has had to change its name to the less-onerous "Third Way" in order to keep fooling people about its mission. Americans for Gun Safety is bankrolled by millionaire anti-gunner Andrew McKelvey, former board member of Handgun Control, Inc., which became the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Connect the dots!
Meanwhile, one of the more vicious anti-gun rights websites on the Internet that is part of this "ban the book" campaign has attacked America Fights Back and co-author Alan Gottlieb. This website rants that America Fights Back is "a gun mayhem book that you don't want to buy!"
Buy America Fights Back Now!
But here's what the operators of the website bury in the basement: They're "a project" of the anti-gun Freedom States Alliance, which is funded by the wealthy anti-gun rights Joyce Foundation!
The campaign by anti-gunners to prevent you from reading America Fights Back is now out in the open. They want to silence the truth.
Buy America Fights Back Now!
Find out what the extremist anti-gun lobby does not want you to know. America Fights Back: Armed Self-Defense in a Violent Age is available now on and Barnes&, as well as in their stores, Borders Books and other major outlets.

Oh why why do they lie?

A Miami city commissioner said in 2004 that when Washington gets a cold, a sneeze is felt in Miami. That's how he described the president's decision not to renew the ban on assault rifles.

Certain features were banned, but the guns were not, they have been for sale everyday for a long time, Miami does not have a gun problem, they have a crime problem.

BTW go here & see the AK's that were for sale from 1994-2004
Illinois Gun Laws
Obama makes statement

The senator, a former constitutional law instructor, says he believes the Second Amendment to the Constitution grants individual gun rights.
But he says it's subject to commonsense regulations like background checks.

So with IL "through" background check to get a FOID card, to purchase guns, the outcome at NIU would have been the same

NIU Shooting

Laying in the fetal position will not prevent the wolf from tearing out your throat!!

"I was running but I was hurtling over people in the fetal position.";_ylt=AjvpJmNuGYI5gMW1Fb.GGDRH2ocA

Kazmierczak had no history of mental illness (but was on meds) and no history of arrests, which would have allowed him to qualify to buy the guns under the state's gun laws, sources said.
By all accounts Kazmierczak was a good student. Serving as a member of the NIU Academic Criminal Justice Assocation, and a teaching aid as an undergraduate. In 2006 he recieved a Dean's Award from the sociology department.

The FOID background check is thorough, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says. Once the process was completed, a prospective buyer could have his weapon after a 72-hour waiting period for handguns and a 24-hour period for long guns.

Marko has a good editoral on the subject:

Police said they got to the hall within two minutes of the 3 p.m. shooting.

Two minutes, and it was all over 6 dead (including the shooter), only those at the scene could have done anything to have stopped threat, but we can't trust them........we just let them die.

Another mass shooting this time in an anti gun state, 23 shot. 6 dead including the shooter.
Since there is no way to get a ccw license in Illnois it was another "Gun Free" zone!!

When are people going to wake up & see that when you put a flock of sheep in a pen, with no sheepdogs, & the wolf comes, the sheep are going to die!!

It's a god given right to defend one's life, give people the tools they need to get the job done!

Quit telling children not to fight back, teach them to fight!, with whatever is at hand!

"Security in the palm of their hand'
That's his Rave cell phone — a fantastical device he was required to buy from the university that not only gives him train schedules, class assignments, movie times and news, but a direct link to the campus police.

That makes as much sense at "unarmed security"
People need to take responsibility for their own security, the police got there in "Under 2 minutes" that left 5 dead & a bunch wounded. A cell phone is not security.

During the raid, authorities seized a massive cache of weapons and equipment, including armored vehicles, a rocket launcher, grenades, various firearms, and ammunition. One of the weapons, found in one of the armored vehicles, was a P90® 5.7 X 28 mm submachine gun.

"Our experience shows us that these guns quickly become used in violent crimes."

Guess the "Gun Show loophole" is not working well in Michigan, forcing the bad guys to steal them instead, but perhaps the Brady's & VPC can get laws passed to control the "Gun Theft Loophole"
They could at least require a background check, before the theft is allowed

Man charged in accidental shooting at gun range
Associated Press - January 30, 2008 5:45 PM ET
LA VISTA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been charged in an accidental shooting earlier this month at an indoor gun range.
One count of third-degree assault was entered against 37-year-old Bryan Deming in Sarpy County Court on Wednesday.
The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office has said Deming was dismantling his Glock .40-caliber pistol at The Bullet Hole when the gun inadvertently fired, striking 37-year-old Greg Boll in the shoulder. Boll suffered a critical injury in the January 10th shooting and spent days in the hospital.
Deming's arraignment is scheduled for February 20th.
If convicted, he faces up to a year in jail.
Information from: Omaha World-Herald,

His Glock did NOT inadvertently fire!, Brian put his finger on the trigger & pulled it, as a Glock has to be decocked to fieldstrip, But Brian did not follow the proper steps listed below.
It really is as simple as that.

1. Always Keep the Gun pointed in a Safe Direction
2. Remove the Magazine
3. Rack the slide & lock back
4. Look and make sure chamber is clear, if you can't see in use your finger.

Now you may proceed to field strip the pistol
