If any of you liberal left-wing nut cases out there are thinking about moving to WYOMING, you better think long and hard. First of all: We don't like you liberal left-wing nut cases, and second: it's a cold, windy, snowy, terrible, awful place to live, but it's home. This morning in Cheyenne...right NOW: -1F
James Madison said that the greatest protection against Federal Tyrranny would be the states. It looks like I may have to move to Wyoming.
I have wondered what it would be like to live in Wyoming. It may not be a far fetched idea after all. Sure hope this goes viral!
I applaud Wyoming for its proactive Constitutional response to the overreach of the Federal Government.
"A man threatened to blow up a CTA bus and told police he was “jihad against the white devil” this week, causing evening rush hour passengers to flee in fear for their lives, authorities said. A judge set bail at $90,000 Tuesday for Caleb Russell, 23".
Yes he looks like the son of .....
Farakhan's audience hears about "white devils" every time he rants, thus we see the results...
SHOCKA! Washigton Elitist, David Gregory will not be charged for violating DC's gun laws.
The reason for not enforcing the law: it would not "serve the best interests of the people of the District"
At least they are honest.
In other news....An Army Veteran who had left a couple of lose rounds in his back pack was arrested in DC under the same statute that Gregory violated (DC Criminal Code, Section 7-2506.01).
I guess it was in the "best interests of the people of the District" to jail and convict the him.
In 2011, Army Spc. Adam Meckler, who spent 15 months in Iraq and 15-month in Afghanistan during his 9 year military career, was thrown in jail for being in possession of ‘unregistered ammunition.’
Meckler was arrested at a District VFW office building. He was there dropping off his medical records and was unaware that he had some loose rounds of 9mm ammo at the bottom of his backpack (he had no gun with him). As he walked through the security checkpoint, the rounds set off the metal detector.
Meckler was cuffed and then subsequently jailed. Not having enough time or money to fight the charges in court, he was forced to accept a plea deal. He now has a criminal record and was added to a database of gun-crime offenders.
asked about the Gregory incident, Meckler said.............
“I unknowingly broke the law,” Mr. Meckler said. “Mr. Gregory knowingly broke the law. While both are seemingly harmless, both acts were deemed illegal under the District’s obscure firearms laws.”
Mr. Meckler, iterated that he would never have intentionally left the rounds in his bag, added, “I think if you had to measure the criminality of the two instances, his should be interpreted as more severe. At the very least, he should be put on probation, pay a fine and be added to the District’s Gun Offender Registry, as I was ordered to do.”
Guns and Murders: America versus the World
We’ve been hearing more and more gobbledygook lately from more and more self-serving politicians alleging that America is an ultra-violent country where murder is a favorite indoor and outdoor sport, where guns of all kinds are used frequently to kill, where our attorney general Eric Holder considers the possession of a gun shameful, where our president Barack Hussein Obama is reportedly planning on bypassing Congress to unilaterally, effectively repeal the Second Amendment by executive order and thereby strip Americans of their constitutional right “to keep and bear arms.”
And all that is political poppycock fabricated and calculated to enable liberals to inflame the public into believing guns and not the people who shoot them are the fundamental problem and we should therefore support their gun-grab and disarm the American people. What AG Holder fails to mention is that guns are “cool” (his word) not in the general population but among black youth, and that really is very “shameful.”
I received an email today from a reliable source.
Always ready to trust–but compelled to verify as per the advice of the late, great President Ronald Wilson Reagan–I thought it was important to check out the email information on where America stood in the gun-murder line as compared to other large and small, free and dictatorial, pacifistic and militaristic nations of the world.
It turns out, according to none other than the United Nation’s World Health Organization, that the USA is not only not overrun with murderous people in need of being restrained by government regulations but rather that we are pretty damned tranquil, civil, and law-abiding when it comes to using guns to kill and maim our fellow man.
We are the third most populous country on the planet with over 315 million residents and, based on firearm manufacturers’ production data, American civilians own approximately 300 million firearms, of which 100 million are handguns.
Those latter numbers grew significantly after the recent shootings and especially since the Obama administration began making noises about “controlling” and confiscating guns. Indeed, the National Rifle Association reported on Wednesday that it gained over 100,000 new members in the 18 days following the Sandy Hook massacre.
All those statistics, suggesting as they do that there are far too many weapons in the hands of civilians, would seem to play into the hands of liberals dedicated to government gun control and seizure. However, none of those stats bear any relevance to the reality that although many Americans have easy access to mostly-registered deadly weapons we generally use them legally and far more responsibly than other people.
As substantiated by the U.N., nations with strict laws governing . . . (Read more at http://www.genelalor.com/blog1/?p=29535.)
States Rights . A great time to tell the federal government to go shove it. I put manure in flower beds, I don't need any out of Washington.
The preamble of the constitution clearly refers to individual states, not the USA as a nation: 'We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union'. When the topknot comes undone (the topknot being federal government) we still have 50 individual functioning governments.
I just heard about this on the radio while I was driving. The radio host interviewed one of the state lawmakers behind the bill and he mentioned that already state politicians from other states have contacted him re their pending law. If this gains traction throughout other states, I believe it will become an issue for the Supreme Court to tackle. Unlike the Healthcare bill, I think this should be a pretty cut and dry case. The Constitution is pretty clear!
Some legislators in Indiana are taking a similar stand on Obamacare.
Unless Obama goes the dictator-like tactic of Executive order, nothing being proposed as far as gun control will get passed, we have to remember that we are having mid term elections and except for Maine all the states up for contention are Red states, and the majority in the senate for the devilcrats is more important then gun control.
Yes, like all of the states refusing to set up healthcare exchanges.
I dearly love how they would actually arrest FBI or ATF agents who tried to nab someone in that state and how their state attorney would defend them.
Let the states be sovereign!
"...and Bingo was his name-o."
Can you say Federal Law Suit? Remember Arizona, and SC CJ John "It's not my job to uphold the Constitution." Roberts.
By the way, I just bought a Springfield XDM .45 ACP today. I can't wait to get it in my hands...:-)))) Hitting the range soon after I get it!!!
Well, I had a dream that a couple or 6 hoodlums were coming for me lovely family. I woke in a cold sweat...24 hrs later, I owned a work of art. OMG is that thing sweeeet!
Jan. 19th is gun appreciation day. We have automatic (autoload) shotguns too and are going to fire every freakin' one of them at a friend's farm on several hundred acres :-)
They told us that if the %$#@ hits the fan, we can go there and help them defend. Uh huh, they're crazy-ass conservatives too. We love 'em!
What's the delivery time on it? Just curious... I'm hearing about really long backorder time for certain mags & ammo.
Weird - I posted a reply but then it disappeared. I'll reply again! Thanks for the tip - I'll definitely look into the P250 as well as the kit option. Hadn't thought about that previously...
I'll look into that one - thanks! As well as the kits - hadn't thought about switching one over to handle more rounds ~
Checkout the subcompact P250 which you can get in an 10 rd (40 S&W) or 6 rd (45acp) and not worry about a magazine ban. Then you can get a kit to switch it over to a full size 9mm with 17rds. There is no license needed or background checks on the kits.
It is an easy DAO pistol to just pick up and shoot.
I bought it from an individual. Met him at a convenience store nearby, gave him a bunch of Benjamins, and the deal was transacted and done in less than 5 minutes :-)
Thanks sDee - that's what I was suspecting. Right now we aren't in the market for anything except a smaller pistol for myself (concealing is really hard with a large weapon!) - and ammo but papa bear was giving serious consideration to changing that budget plan. The place we use hasn't increased prices on the AR's or mags like a lot of places but they aren't giving any ship time either. Talk about stimulating the economy!!! A million + backorders from one company! Wowzers.
Most places are not giving dates on backorders as they are overwhelmed. 30 and 20 round magazines are impossible to find. Magpul who makes the popular Pmag has a 1 million unit backorder!
Get your name in a few places - you might try finding or backordering a few AR-15 lowers. They are strighforward to build into a rifle or carbine.
Nice. Did you get plenty of ammo? Most pistol ammo is still available but 5.56 is scarce - very scare.
I've a 45 ACP caliber exchange kit for my Sig P250 on the way! (I'll blame Mike for the purchase decision :) ) I am really getting to like that pistol. Two more kits and it will able to shoot most any pistol ammo I can find.
Sorry for not responding in a timely manner. I didn't realize what time it was and I had to leave so that I could pay for people's entitlements.
Yes, I already had the ammo, since I had a 1911 previously. They can't make 5.56 fast enough to meet the demand. Give the ammo producers time and they'll catch up. That is why I decided to buy an AK-74 a few years back. Back then, 5.45 ammo was abundant and lower than dirt cheap. Now, good luck on getting ammo for anything at a rather fair price. Everything has gone through the roof because of all the gun control/ban garbage going on. Good for you on making the caliber switch on your Sig. It's just something about the .45 that makes one feel just a little bit more empowered (if you know what I mean, heh). Have fun! :->
