Election Coverage

It seems that the only thing I hear about regarding the upcoming election is energy policy.  Well, I also work at a place where that's all I hear in general, but still, there are much bigger things at hand than to just talk about how we are going to build wind farms and capture carbon.  Our Second Amendment is at stake.  Below are some things I found interesting in the NRA Magazine: "America's 1st Freedom"

Barack Obama's Ten Point Plan To "Change" The Second Amendment

1. Ban use of firearms for home defense.

2. Pass Federal laws eliminating your Right-to-Carry.

3. Ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns.

4. Close down 90% of the gun shops in America.

5. Ban rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting.

6. Increase federal taxes on guns and ammunition by 500 percent.

7. Restore voting rights for five million criminals including those who have been convicted of using a gun to commit a violent crime.

8. Expand the Clinton semi-auto ban to include millions more firearms.

9. Mandate a government-issued license to purchase a firearm.

10. Appoint judges to the U.S. Supreme Court and Federal judiciary who share his views on the Second Amendment.

History Lesson

"February 4, 1938.  Adolf Hitler promoted himself to military chief of Germany.  Hitler took over Austria on March 15, 1938.  After massing thousands of Nazi troops at the Austrian border, Chancellor Kurt Schusschnigg admitted defeat and was arrested.  One might ask, "What has this got to do with the Right to Keep and Bear Amrs?"  My wife of more than 50 years was living in Austria at the time.  She told me how the Nazi troops took away the firearms of farmers and village people; soon after that, the Jews and the gypsies disappeared from the countryside.  A few of their bodies were found, and the rest were sent off to prisons.  They had nothing with which to defend themselves.  I pray to God that freedom-loving people in the United States remember this lesson from history, so that we may keep our Second Amendment right to defend ourselves." - Don Humphrey

My response:
Ok, I'm not comparing Obama to Hitler, except that they both seem to have an agenda of disarming their citizens.  We can't have that.  You say that nothing like that will ever happen to us, but you don't know that.  I think it's best to be prepared.  Protected and prepared.  

I probably just opened a hole can of worms...  let the flaming begin.
