When is the government going to stop killing flies with sledgehammers?
By this I am talking about the ban on the number of rounds a weapon can have, the kind of weapon a person can own and the rights of the 2nd Amendment.
They don’t seem to care what they tear up or who they hurt they just want to take away our rights. In all of these shootings, no one is finding out why these people were shooting people. Were they mentally ill, were they on some kind of medication, did they have depression or what? The government and Obama immediately want to blame the guns. A gun by itself has never killed anyone and never will.
Obama has by executive privilege made the criminal better armed than the law abiding citizen. His next step will be to disarm all law abiding citizens.
Maybe before this happens we should look at what has happened in countries that have done this. England, gun crime has more than doubled, Australia, armed robbery up 69%, assaults using guns up 28%, murders using guns up 19%, home invasion up 21%.
Any country that gives up its right of self protection is overrun by the criminal element. Not to mention the fact that they have no protection from their own government, which is one of the purposes of the 2nd Amendment in the first place.
Another thing that is really sad is the media and the way they just ignore things or take recorded statements and edit them to throw suspicion the way they want it.
Example, right about the time of the school shooting in Connecticut there was an elementary school in China where 23 students were stabbed. The only American news media I have found that reported was Fox.
There have been several people who have used guns to protect themselves or others and no reports. A woman, (in Georgia) had to defend herself and two twin daughters from an invader even after she and her daughters hid from the man. The only place I have heard that was on talk radio.
I hope this has a happy ending but I don’t think it will. He is treading on sacred ground.
It’s true: Objects are closer than they appear
You know that little warning on your rearview mirror that says, “Objects are closer than they appear.” Well, it’s true.

How did those lame names happen?
I’ve often wondered what process is used to determine the mascot name for a football team. Is there a committee formed to do this? Is it thrown out to the public in the form of a contest to come up with a moniker? Were two drunks in a bar involved?

In retrospect, tragedy seemingly gains new light
It’s often said that hindsight is 20-20. Many of us have instances in our lives where that thought would have application.
Now comes the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. As you recall, Zimmerman, described by some as a cop wannabe who couldn’t make the grade, killed young Martin. The jury acquitted Zimmerman of homicide charges. Many felt the prosecution was weak.

Tis’ the season when scammers hone their deeds
It might be the season to be jolly, and we all might hope for peace and goodwill, but the fact is this is also the season for scammers.

‘Black Friday’: It’s a subset of our capitalism
Someone asked me what the term “Black Friday” meant. Well my understanding is that it means businesses would like to end the year in the “black” as opposed to being in the “red” financially. So they have a big sale.
