In Addition to Our Rights, The “Assault” is on Our Intelligence

The politicians, the MSM, and the liberals/leftists slobbering after our guns while pinning our Second Amendment under their collective heels are tossing around a lot of misplaced terms and ignoring facts, as usual. Yesterday I found this very informative video simply defining the difference between a deemed "assault" rifle and a sport rifle. He also shows us the ridiculousness of banning magazine rounds...

"The Second Amendment is not about duck hunting ... It's about all of our rights to protect ourselves from all of you guys up there."

In case you have not seen this before, I am posting this video from Suzanna Gratia Hupp's Senate hearing testimony on gun control from over 20 years ago with a very smug Chuck Schumer in front of her ire. As a citizen who witnessed a mass shooting that took both her parents she tries to reason with and get the Senators to understand common sense and reality in the face of their simple-minded knee-jerk legislating against our Second Amendment rights and personal sovereignty...

She has not lost her convictions since that testimony. Here she schools the CNN anchor who is still trying to push the MSM misinformation (keep in mind the poll the anchor cites is based on people polled who have been fed misinformation) on the heels of the December school shooting...

'With all due respect' ... Facts and stinking facts.

How DARE "We the People" think for ourselves. How DARE "We the People" abide by the laws and our Bill of Rights under the U.S. Constitution that the politicians falsly swear an oath to uphold and protect ... Shame on us, says Obama's illegal gunwalking DOJ AG.

Added bonus video below the fold: "Ted Nugent and Peter Schiff Talk Gun Control"

Recall Ted Nugent got in trouble during the campaign season when he made some very stark predictions at the NRA Convention.

    Yep! The arguements are ridiculous especially in light of the stats showing decrease crimes in areas where concealed weopans are allowed; and alternatively increased gun crimes in "gun free" zones.

    So, there was a bad accident involving a ferry recently--where is the outcry to ban ferries? Dang, they are dangerous in the wrong hands, or even in an accidental situation!!

    @raddoc -

    You're really not far off.

    By the end of 2012 NYC had atleast 2 incidents of people being purposely pushed in front of oncoming subway cars, but Mayor Bloominidiot says not to jump to any hasty conclusions on those...

    Yet, as New York City experiences another homicide by subway train we are being told we need to keep these things in perspective, and basically understand it is the individual nut case(s) walking among us that is to blame for the deaths, and not the weapon of choice. But that is probably because it is happening in the city where the heroic mayor has single-handedly slain the Big Gulp dragon and saved countless lives ... and, you know, it's bad for tourism.

  • [...] own guns, and that we really didn't need too many hunters because we had grocery stores. I told her our gun rights were NOT written for "hunters", and that we fought the King to free ourselves with guns and we had to keep guns to personally [...]
