Yay For the 2nd Amendment

Here’s part of an interesting email I received today. Lots of food for thought, especially for anti-gun people. 


“It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

   List of 7 items:

 Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent

 Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent
 Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
 In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

 While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

 There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the  other historical facts above prove it.
 You won’t see this datum on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
 Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
As John Steinbeck once said:
  1. Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll  just kill you.
  2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
  3. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.
 4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

 5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the  Ranger was carrying and asked him ‘Why do you carry a 45?’ The Ranger responded, ‘Because they don’t make a 46.’  

6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

 7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. ‘Sheriff,   I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?’ ‘No Ma’am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought  my rifle.’
  8. Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use it.
   But wait, there’s more!
 I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I did. She said ‘Well I certainly hope it isn’t loaded!’ To which I said, ‘Of course it is loaded, can’t work without bullets!’ She then asked,  ‘Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?’ My reply was, ‘No, not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I  have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.’ To which I’ll add, having a gun in the house that isn’t loaded is like having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.”

    I could not have said it better. When you take away guns from law abiding citizens it makes them victims. It is like placing a sign in front of your house saying you are out of town, they know no one can stop them. If we can’t stop drugs and illegal immigrants from coming into our country, how can we stop criminals from getting guns? Good work, man. May our liberties be forever protected by our Constitution and our God.

    Very good, Andrew. I love that one bumper sticker on Facebook that says, “Guns kill people like pencils misspell words.”

    Man, those people who wrote the Bill of Rights were pretty clever. See, since citizens can have guns, the government can’t get too out of control without the fear of the people. For the people, by the people. Hmm…maybe Benjamin Franklin was a wise person…

Quote of the Amount of Time I Want to Leave it Up Here

"I've... seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen C-Beams... glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost... like tears... in rain. Time... to die." ~Roy Batty (Blade Runner)
