The following is a chart compiled by Jews For the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. (scroll down page past 1/2 way to see the chart on the site) It was created in 2002- but the facts still stand. All of the nations whose gun rights were curtailed completely or limited have suffered horrible genocides from their governments.
The chart is hard to read, if you click on their webpage, you will be able to see it in detail. Women; believing women, can support gun rights in America. Our grandchildren may be required to follow direction at the end of a barrel if we do not speak out now.
Please visit Gun Owners of America for a wealth of information. Add your name to their newsletter list and watch as daily the powers that be seek to destroy your right to defend your person and property by eroding our second amendment rights.
In “Communist Gun Control” by Dave Kopel, you will find the Afghans are the most well trained and well armed in the world. Speed read to the end if you don’t have time to read it all.
I think if you double click the chart you can enlarge it. If not, use your zoom or go directly to the website listed in the first sentence of the chart.
New Jersey Mayor, Cory Booker, made a public service announcement last week (posted to You Tube by Gun Owners of America) to his constituents offering cold hard cash ($1,000) to residents who turn in their gun owning neighbors. Granted this is for people who may be illegallycarrying a gun; but this should awaken anyone who owns guns, as their protection by the Bill of Rights is being undermined by a veiled campaign to make it unpopular to own a firearm- concealed or otherwise.
Criminals will have no problem replacing a confiscated weapon. Perhaps the government can even help them get another one. Can you say Fast and Furious?
At present, no one can take your gun if you possess it in a law abiding manner; but like cigarettes, or overweight, pressure can make some so socially uncomfortable, that they will succumb to turning in their weapons without resistance.
People kill people not guns. Criminals, whether outlaws or within the law, will always find a way to do injustice to others. They will find the necessary weaponry they need to do harm and use it against the innocent.
Getting people to turn in others who are illegally carrying weapons is part of a “big brother” move to make you spy on your neighbor or neighborhood thug. Neither is your job. Are they asking criminals to turn in fellow criminals?
Where are the law enforcement personnel? If they wait long enough, the government might be able to resupply newer weapons to the illegal concealed carrying community. Fast and Furious anyone?
Illegal weapons are not to be tolerated and those who carry them are wrong for doing so. However, the snitching issue needs to be exposed for what it is, spying on your neighbor. Why are they after just the weapons and not the people who supply them? If crime is going down in Newark, New Jersey, why the push to report anyone?
Like fast and furious- perhaps criminals will now steal more guns from rightful owners creating more problems in the community for the law abiding- forcing the Mayor to plead with residents to turn in all guns, illegal or not. Things are never what they appear, from election campaigns to presidents to public service announcements. There is always a back story, and for the average citizen it is usually not in their favor.
I hope you will visit and join Gun Owners of America. They are working to keep you free by protecting your gun rights.
Gun Owners of America (GOA) is a non-profit lobbying organization formed in 1975 to preserve and defend the Second Amendment rights of gun owners. GOA sees firearms ownership as a freedom issue. ~About Gun Owners of America
And from Thomas Paine:
“Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property… Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”
– Thomas Paine
A young Iranian Pastor is facing certain death for blasphemy if he does not denounce Jesus Christ. The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) is petitioning Americans to get involved in putting pressure on the Iranian officials to change their mind.
Iranian Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been charged, convicted and sentenced to death for apostasy – becoming a Christian. When Iranian officials demanded that he recant his faith in Jesus Christ or die, he responded, “I cannot.” He has been illegally imprisoned and separated from his wife and two boys since 2009. We are fighting to save his life and win his freedom. We need your voice in this fight; please lend us your voice for Pastor Youcef today. ~From AClJ website

President Obama signed our internet freedom and privacy rights away long before the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) came into being. ..say around 2008? The international treaty has made waves all over the globe. Tyrannical government anyone?
It’s just another reason piled on top of so many others, that call each of us out to vote and be heard for individual liberty.
ACTA has – officially – been in the works since 2008, and was signed by the US, Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea in 2011. All negotiations were held behind closed doors, and it is mostly thanks to Internet hacktivist groups like Anonymous that news of the potential damage ACTA could cause has spread.~ Russia Today
The Tri Faith Inititative has purchased property in Omaha Nebraska to be used for communal purposes by the three most recognized religions in the world, Chistians, Jews and Muslims.
People who call themselves Christians, Jews, and Muslims will share 35 acres on the site, with a common building to be used for combined events. A temple, church and mosque will occupy the land per the Tri Faith Initiative and an article written in Arab American.com.
The memorandum of understanding was signed in 2006 between the three groups to create the facilities while fundraising has continued. The hope is that the facility will open in the fall of 2013, although work on individual buildings could continue for another year or two. ~Nick Meyer Arabamerican.com
“Experience teaches us that interaction cantransform intolerance, ignorance and fear into understanding, respect and trust,” said Bob Freeman, Tri-Faith Initiative Board Chairman. “These basic valuesare shared by the three Abrahamic faiths and are rooted in our Midwestern culture.” ~From the Press Room Tri Faith Inititative
It appears Tony Blair and his ilk, are achieving their purpose of one world religion. One state at a time?
This is the most courageous statement of faith I have ever read. This statement is basically resisting the sheep-like following of government entities who try to remove from Americans, those rights which are inalienable and given by God.
