Re Book: No Easy Day by Mark Owen: This is a great book. The author risked a lot, including his SPEC OPS teammate’s friendships, to tell us the truth about what happened during the take-down of Osama Bin Laden and counter certain exaggerations about what happened. The book tells us what really happened without compromising national security. This is a book about the many American heroes, not just Mark Owen (not his real name) and his brave teammates, who worked tirelessly for years to hunt OBL down.

"If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying -- that they must sweep under the rug the southern attempts at gun control in the 1870-1910 period, the northeastern attempts in the 1920-1939 period, the attempts at both Federal and State levels in 1965-1976 -- establishes the repeated, complete and inevitable failure of gun laws to control serious crime." - Senator Orrin Hatch
"The problem is not the availability
of guns, it is the availability of morons."

"Those who deny me the freedom to carry a firearm with which to protect my family and myself, are as complicit and guilty as the perpetrator should we be harmed or murdered by an act of violence." - Charles F. "Chuck" Bearden
"The ruling class doesn't care about public safety. Having made it very difficult for States and localities to police themselves, having left ordinary citizens with no choice but to protect themselves as best they can, they now try to take our guns away. In fact they blame us and our guns for crime. This is so wrong that it cannot be an honest mistake." - Sen. Malcolm Wallop
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms." - James Madison

U.S. Marines Scathing Response to Sen. Feinsteins Gun Control Proposal: I Am Not Your Subject. I Am the Man Who Keeps You Free
From the liberals
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the governmentâ€™s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You maâ€™am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.

I looked at one local MMS news site and I found 3 examples of both moral decay in our country as well as the need to be armed. Parts of society are morally bankrupt, I would say 47% due to Obama's reelection as this segment of society wanted Santa Clause, not a real leader. Additionally it is not the Guns or other weapons fault but the person who wields it, but the weapons give liberals a reason to take more freedom away from you while inserting their control over your life..

BORDER ISSUES: MEXICO
"By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia,' 'the security of the nation,' and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms,' our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy... The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important." - John F. Kennedy
