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
News links from www.Need2No.US:
Congresswoman Dianne Feinstein declares war against ALL Americans:
In my estimation and interpretation, what is being proposed is essentially treason. Feinstein and her associates are strongly proposing rendering ALL Americans essentially defenseless at the hands of outlaws with guns. That said, I’d consider her and her like-minded and responding associates accessories to murder of defenseless Americans if Americans’ guns were confiscated or otherwise rendered useless or almost impossible to obtain and own due to exorbitant fees and tedious procedures.

VERY GOOD ARTICLE AND VIDEO. PLEASE SEE:
the new year is upon us, a year beginning that I was sure would be much
different than it is, I was thinking about what Aristotle said and it is
classic Stalinism, Nazism and Saul Alinsky:
“Tyrants preserve themselves by sowing fear and mistrust among the citizens by means of spies, by distracting them with foreign wars, by eliminating men of spirit who might lead a revolution, by humbling the people, and making them incapable of decisive action.” Aristotle
On another thought let us look at the Law of the Sea Treaty to which I give an example of the UN treaty in effect over Ghana. This is the same treaty Obama and the liberals in Congress are drooling to get us a part of and conservatives have been fighting against.
A people cannot simultaneously live free and be bound to any human master or man-made institution, especially to politicians, judges, bureaucrats and faceless government agencies. This is a major problem with the Law of the Sea Treaty as the UN trumps national sovereignty, any of that states judges or laws.

A recent CNN article confirms that this is in fact the strategy of anti-gun forces. Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, made the following comments in an interview with CNN. "Look, when this kind of thing happens, we have to make the case in that very short window -- what went wrong, why it went wrong, how you can fix it -- in a way that motivates Congress to do what it should. With something as terrible as this is, involving children, the window is open a little wider than it has been before. I think my back of the envelope is usually about a month. But after the series of mass shootings and the gravity of this one, I think we may have a little more time." Anti-gun forces know that they must strike while emotions are high to capitalize on irrational thought driven by these emotions. They know that once the hysteria subsides and cooler heads prevail, people aren't as willing to surrender their Constitutional freedoms. This is why you see people like Dianne Feinstein racing to the first camera she can find to promote her most recent gun grab proposal.
“Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Those were the words of former Obama administration Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, who was alluding to using the nation’s economic crisis to justify huge expansion in the federal government.

"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
