News of Import 2-20-2013


A few thoughts before this News of Import.

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. 

You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. 

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. 

You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. 

You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. 

You cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. 

You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln

If you have read the Communist Manifesto it states: "To each according to his ability to each according to his need." If you are capable then you need little while those that are not, need a lot or in Obama terms pay your fair share and redistribute wealth.

If you want to see communism you just have to look back at the former Soviet Russia and if you want to see what Obama wants for America just look at France where workers get paid well but work only 3 hours a day. Is there any wonder why people voted for president Santa Clause? People do not want to work for what they get and feel they are entitled to what you made or have.

LEAKED NRA Members Video: 'Borderless' (This is a great short video)


The gang of 8 Senators have introduced a bipartisan plan for immigration reform.


The principles introduced include what the "Gang of Eight" said are the four provisions of immigration reform:

* A tough but fair path to citizenship while increasing security on U.S. borders and tracking whether legal immigrants have left the country as required by the plan.

* Reform of the U.S. government's legal immigration system.

* Work eligibility verification to be conducted in cooperation with the private sector.

* Creating a program for admitting skilled workers necessary for a competitive economy.


Unfortunately, there is no provision with regard to insuring visa system integrity and dealing with a security breach as dangerous as U.S. borders.


Janet Napolitano claims the border is more secure than ever before. However 356,873 illegal immigrants crossed the border in 2012, up 9% from 2011. Border sheriffs say that for every 1 that get arrested, 2 get through which means nearly 1 million people crossed the border in 2012. You MUST have border control before proceeding with any other immigration reform.  Read this alarming article for more details:

To the elite, a firearm is a symbol of barbarism and a lack of trust of one’s fellow citizens and government.”

Alarmed by the unsustainable growth of Medicare’s unfunded obligations and the direct threat this posed to seniors, Congress in 2003 enacted a legal requirement that the President submit legislation if the Medicare Trustees issue a funding warning for the program as part of their annual report. This provision of federal law is commonly known as the Medicare Trigger, and it is intended to ensure that steps are taken to shore up the program’s finances before it is too late.

The Gipper

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed. When the British forgot that they got a revolution. And, as a result, we Americans got a Constitution; a Constitution that, as those who wrote it were determined, would keep men free. If we give up part of that Constitution we give up part of our freedom and increase the chance that we will lose it all." --Ronald Reagan

There are several versions of the text of the Second Amendment, each with slight capitalization and punctuation differences, found in the official documents surrounding the adoption of the Bill of Rights.[5] One version was passed by the Congress,[6] while another is found in the copies distributed to the States[7] and then ratified by them.

As passed by the Congress:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.[8]

The original hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights, approved by the House and Senate, was prepared by scribe William Lambert and resides in the National Archives.

The Second Amendment is the only amendment to the Constitution which states a purpose.[9]


If they Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight ?

If you are a gun owner at Bank of America…it’s time you left them



From a WI Carry Inc. CCL training manual:

Four conditions - When any one of these is no longer the case, you may not use lethal force.

1. Be innocent of instigation or provocation. You must be a reluctant participant. Do not

go looking for a fight.

2. Attempt to withdraw or retreat if you are able. (this is not a requirement in Wisconsin

but it is in some states) We don’t want to shoot anyone if we can safely escape.

3. No lesser force will do or use only sufficient force to deliver oneself from evil.

4. You must be in immediate and reasonable fear of great bodily harm or death or had an

immediate and reasonable fear of death. Grave danger must be imminent.

Preclusion – no other reasonable option. Absolutely necessary.

"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 

―A person is privileged to threaten or intentionally use force against another for the purpose of preventing or terminating what the person reasonably believes to be an unlawful interference with his or her person by such other person. The actor may intentionally use only such force or threat thereof as the actor reasonably believes is necessary to prevent or terminate the interference. The actor may not intentionally use force which is intended or likely to cause death or great bodily harm unless the actor reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to himself or herself.‖ Wis. Stat. § 939.48(1).

―A person is privileged to defend a 3rd person from real or apparent unlawful interference by another under the same conditions and by the same means as those under and by which the person is privileged to defend himself or herself from real or apparent unlawful interference, provided that the person reasonably believes that the facts are such that the 3rd person would be privileged to act in self-defense and that the person‘s intervention is necessary for the protection of the 3rd person.‖ Wis. Stat. § 939.48(4).


S&W: Running at Full capacity making 300+ guns/day-mainly M&P pistols. They are unable to produce any more guns to help with the shortages.
RUGER: Plans to increase from 75% to 100% in the next 90 days.

FNH: Moving from 50% production to 75% by Feb 1st and 100% by March 1.

Remington: Maxed out!

Armalite: Maxed out.

DPMS: Can’t get enough parts to produce any more product.

COLT: Production runs increasing weekly...bottle necked by lack of bolt carrier’s.

LWRC: Making only black guns, running at full capacity...can’t get enough gun quality steel to make barrels.

Springfield Armory: Only company who can meet demand but are running 30-45 days behind.

AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/over 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line.

MAGPUL: Behind 1 MILLION mags, do not expect any large quantities of magpul anytime soon.

RELOADERS: ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo FIRST. There are no extra’s for reloading purposes... it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up. Sorry for the bleak news, but now we know what to expect in the coming months. Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted...

Related commentary from Bob Owens:

They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers are running full-bore, but can’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It isn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that are sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 Carbines, and Enfield .303s are gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seemed to have 10-20—are gone. So is their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years is gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

Barack Obama, Dianne Feinstein and the rest of the Statists have done more to promote gun ownership than the NRA ever did. Well done, Democrats!
