Looks Like New Hampshire and Friends are Gathering Supporters

From my previous post about New Hampshire declaring sovereignty based on the 9th and 10th Amendments. It now seems as if the list is growing. Now some analyst expect around 20 states to adopt this type of legislation.

Starting to look to me like this states rights issue is starting to come to the forefront again. Wouldn't it really be great to put the federal government in its actual place.

Firearms: A Great Equalizer

"A criminal on methamphetamine, about to break into a car, confronts the owner who just woke up and wears nothing but underpants. Who do you think would win this fight? Fade to a new version of the scene; the homeowner is “wearing” one more accoutrement––a handgun. Now who wins?"[link]

Excellent article, make perfect since to me.

B.C. police, politicians struggle to react to gang-related shootings

"On Friday afternoon, two gunmen pumped multiple rounds from what RCMP say were prohibited firearms into a pickup truck outside a suburban Langley mall's supermarket as shoppers were getting their weekend groceries."[link]

Let's take a moment to ponder the bold print and underlined statement.... Ok, so your telling me that these two criminals had possession of a prohibited firearm. OH MY! What about the children!? Oh wait, isn't criminal by definition someone who breaks the law? And doesn't Canada have relatively strict gun control? And this gun control does not prevent criminals from getting guns?

Maybe instead of some of the b*llshit laws that are being passed to curb individual rights, we as citizens should push for a law that makes it mandatory for all elected officials to show proficiency in logic. Then they might be able to put together than criminals don't care if it is illegal to own (insert your favorite Brady Campaign wish list of weapons to be banned here), they will get it anyway.

If just passing a law kept it from happening then it would have already, but it didn't.

Does Your Preacher Pack a Gun?

"God and guns we might think don’t swing together in church or anywhere else. After all there’s a rule about killing. It turns out that many preachers in one Southern part of the United States love their guns and consider them valuable."[link]
Pretty sure this article was wrote by a gun-rights fence sitter. The really seem to be tore up about which way to lean. This is a good example of why we, pro-gunners, need to continue to put our best foot forward. Remember in order to carry on our pro-rights culture we need to pass it on to others. Invite friends, family, and neighbors to the range with you sometime.

And by the way, I don't think my current preacher packs a gun, but one of my previous preachers sure did.
