Colorado Reaps Gun Ban that Bloomberg Sowed 

Everyone knew Magpul was going to take its jobs and nearly $90 million in taxes elsewhere  as a result of the state’s recent gun control laws. That was just the beginning of the push back by law abiding gun owners and sportsmen.

The first salvo was fired this month by Michael Bane, a freelance producer for The Outdoor Channel, who announced he will no longer film his four shows in Colorado.  Bane produces “Gun Stories,” the cable network’s most popular show, among others. He said in a recent letter to lawmakers, “We are relatively small potatoes in television, but our relocation of production will cost Colorado a little less than a million dollars in 2013.”

Colorado’s hunting industry is facing a backlash from outdoor enthusiasts across the country because of recent legislation meant to curtail gun violence.  Gun and hunting websites and forums are full of posts about boycotting the state. Hunting outfitters say people have begun cancelling trips.  Out-of-state hunters accounted for 15 percent of hunting licenses last year, 86,493, compared with 489,000 for residents.

The new gun control bills in Colorado were drafted by Bloomberg and his people and have definitions that are peculiar to New York law rather than Colorado law.  Michael Bane stopped by Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk Radio this week. These so called “gun violence prevention laws” include a ban on ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds and universal background checks and changes the definition of a firearm transfer in Colorado.  Listen to Michael Bane on Gun Talk Radio here.

Now Democrats in other states are pushing back and distancing themselves from Bloomberg in response to his recent $12 million ad buy from Mayors Against Illegal Guns, pushing senators in 12 states to support gun bans. Bloomberg is personally financing the ad campaign.  He is spending $156,000 in North Dakota.

On Tuesday, Senator Heidi Heitkamp (DEMORCRAT-N.D.) criticized Bloombergs federal gun control push this week, telling the mayor that he should be more worried about gun violence in his own city than in North Dakota, the Grand Forks Herald reported.

North Dakota continues to have one [of] the highest rates of gun ownership and lowest incidences of gun crime in the country, Heitkamp said in a statement. Yet New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg insists on taking gun-driven crime statistics in his city and from other major cities and trying to force those numbers into a narrative that just does not fit North Dakota.

Heitkamp, who previously served as North Dakotas attorney general, added, I do not need someone from New York City to tell me how to handle crime in our state.  Frankly, there are far better uses for Mayor Bloombergs $156,000 than buying ads attacking a way of life he clearly does not understand.

Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands? -Patrick Henry American Patriot

Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership in America

Founded by Jews in 1989, Jew for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) initially educated the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim-disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all. JPFO is the brainchild of Aaron Zelman (1946 - 2010), a leading national civil-rights activist.

JPFO is a non-profit tax-exempt 501(c)(3) educational civil-rights organization, not a lobby. JPFO’s products and programs reach out to as many segments of the American people as possible, using bold tactics without compromise on fundamental principles

JPFO has always welcomed people of all religious beliefs (or none) who share a common goal of opposing and reversing potentially deadly victim disarmament policies. You don’t have to be Jewish to join JPFO; you just have to love freedom.

Aaron Zelman, a proud Jew, initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed. He was appalled that so many Jewish politicians and influential Jewish public officials and spokes people actually advocated citizen disarmament. He said it many a time: “Jews should be the last people on Earth to support ‘gun control’. See: An Interview With Aaron Zelman

The current Executive Director of JPFO is Charles Heller. Mr. Heller grew up in Chicago, the son of a law-enforcement officer and grandson of a judge.  He had a BB-gun rifle range in the basement of his grandfathers house, and fired thousands of shots during his youth.

In 1978 he moved to Arizona, specifically so he could exercise his Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Hes literally one of the many political refugee from places like Chicago, New York, New Jersey and Maryland who move to free states like Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, Utah, Florida and about 35 other shall issue states.

Mr. Heller is one of four co-founders of the Arizona Citizens Defense League, the primary self-defense civil-rights lobby in Arizona.  They are responsible for the passage of Constitutional Carry in Arizona, which recognizes the right to carry openly or concealed without a permission slip from government.

So-called “gun control” is a deadly lie. Firearms registration lists lead governments-gone-bad straight to gun owners. Licensing and registration of guns has resulted in outright banning and confiscation over the last one hundred years of world history. The bloody results of these mass citizen disarmaments have been horrific.

Anyone who is lawfully adjudicated unfit to carry a firearm should not be on the street in the first place. They should be in prison or in a mental institution. We’ve thrown the baby (our personal liberties) out with the bathwater, making us helpless to protect ourselves from armed criminals and lunatics. And who promotes this delusional illogic the most fervently? Politicians and the law enforcement hierarchy.”    -Aaron Zelman

Mayor McFascist Bloomberg Pledges Millions to Infringe Second Amendment

The $12 million ad blitz targeting senators wavering on gun control will be just the beginning, Mayor McFascist Bloomberg warned Sunday.

“I have a responsibility to try to make this country safer,” Bloomberg said on “Meet the Press” when asked if he’d spend big-time in next year’s elections to target the National Rifle Association and members of Congress for opposing gun restrictions.

“If I can do that by spending some money, and taking the NRA from being the only voice to being one of the voices, so the public can really understand the issues, then I think my money will be well spent and I think I have an obligation to do that,” he said.

“If 90% of the public wants something, and their representatives vote against that, common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that,” Bloomberg said, referring to the proportion of people polls show support universal background checks.

Bloomberg launched the ad campaign, which will start airing today, in a dozen states where Bloomberg believes key senators can be swayed. The ad features a rifle-toting hunter making the case for background checks.

“I don’t think there’s ever been an issue where the public has spoken so clearly where Congress hasn’t eventually understood and done the right thing,” he said.

Banning assault weapons, Bloomberg acknowledged, will be a tougher sell. “I don’t think we should give up on the assault weapons ban, but clearly it is a more difficult issue for a lot of people,” he said.

Senate leaders have stripped the assault weapons ban out of the main gun control plan that will go to the floor, though it will get an up or down vote as an amendment that is likely to fail.

Bloomberg continues to stand on the graves of murdered children to advance his political agenda to disarm law abiding citizens in violation of the Second Amendment.  “It would be a great tragedy for this country and for tens of thousands of lives if (the opportunity) is lost,” he said. We’re trying to do everything we can to impress upon the senators that this is what the survivors (of Newtown) want, this is what the public wants.”

In a separate appearance on “Meet the Press,” NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre pointed out how unpopular Bloomberg has become throughout the country.  “They don’t want him in their restaurants, they don’t want him in their restaurants, they don’t want him in their food, they don’t want him telling them what food to eat, they sure don’t want him telling them what self-defense firearms to own,” he said. “He can’t buy America.”

LaPierre said that small checks have been pouring into the NRA from people put off by Bloomberg.  “We have people all over, millions of people sending us five-, 10-, 15-, 20-dollar checks saying, ‘Stand up to this guy.’”

LaPierre insisted the debate over universal background checks rests on a “dishonest premise”  because criminals won’t follow the law.  “Criminals aren’t going to be checked,” he said. “They’re not going to do this. The shooters in Tucson, in Aurora, in Newtown, they’re not going to be checked.  It slows down the law abiding, and does nothing for anybody else.

Bloombergs blitz, which will saturate television screens in states including Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, North Dakota, Louisiana and Arizona, represents the biggest escalation of his attempts to control politics outside of New York.  Among the targets of the ad are Democratic senators Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana, Mark L. Pryor of Arkansas, and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.

Heres a plan. Expose the hypocrisy of the liberal fascist ruling class and their billionaire benefactors. The formal Hypocrite is very justly compared with a Nightingale. She is more in sound than in substance, a loud and excellent voice, but a little despicable body. - WELLINS CALCOTT, Thoughts Moral and Divine

 If Satan ever laughs, it must be at hypocrites; they are the greatest dupes he has; they serve him better than any others, and receive no wages.

Bloomberg vs the NRA - Gun Owners Will Decide the Winner

If you are a legal gun owner or plan on owning one, your number primary enemy is New York Billionaire Mayor McFacsit Michael Bloomberg.  He is the money behind  the gun banners, including both the Feinstein and Colorado gun grab.

Our Republic is being destroyed because the federal government and a handful of states have gone beyond the bounds of the Constitution.  This is what happens when we elect so called Progressives to national office.  Progressive is the politically correct (PC) term for Liberal Fascist.

Once the government has take away our Second Amendment civil rights, they will go after the First Amendment.  The term Liberal Fascist will be deemed hate speech, along with thousands of other prohibited words and phrases.  Saying proscribed words like Liberal Fascist will get your arrested.

Now before you send those emails calling me paranoid, crazy, a right wing-nut tea bagger, delusional, etc., take a look around the world.  The same countries that ban or severely restrict civilian ownership of firearms also have laws prohibting so called hate speech.  See Canada, England, Australia, and just about every country in the industrial world for details. 

The entire Bill of Rights is at stake.  Loose one, and we will loose them all.  Obama told you he was going to transform the Republic and hes intent on keeping that one promise.  Rachel Maddow is right about one thing (and only one thing). THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES TO ELECTIONS. When we elect Progressives intent on changing our Constitutional Republic into a statist socialized collective, this is what we get.

But its not too late to save our Constitutional Republic.  Make sure you are registered to voteContact your U.S. Senators and Congressmen at least once a weekVote in EVERY election that you are eligible

And if you own a firearm, you MUST be a MEMBER OF THE NRA.  Yes, there are many other excellent Second Amendment rights organizations out there. Im a member of half a dozen. But by far, the NRA is the MOST effective and successful lobby for defending our Second Amendment civil rights.  PERIOD.

There is no organization in America that the Left despises more than the NRA.  That is really all the proof you should need that the NRA is the most effective Second Amendment civil rights lobby in America.

News reports write about  “gun lobbyists” when referring to to the NRA but they call  the anti-gun lobbies gun safety groups or groups against gun violence.

The NRA is certainly a lobbying organization. As are unions, PACs, the Brady Bunch, Illegal Mayors against Guns, and thousands of citizen groups that band together for a common political purpose.

Liberal fascists claim the NRA is a puppet of gun manufacturers – nothing could be further from the truth.

Gun makers make money from the gun buying public. Without gun owners, there would be no commercial gun makers. The money does not come from the gun makers themselves, but from the gun-owning American public. If 100+ million legal American gun owners didn’t believe in the right of civilian gun ownership, they wouldn’t be spending billions of dollars on firearms, ammunition and accessories. Since Obama was elected 64 million of the 300 million civilian firearms in America have been sold.  Have you tried to buy a gun, a magazine or ammunition lately?  Good luck finding what you are looking to buy. The manufactures simply can not keep up with demand.

The primary problem is that not all gun owners appreciate the power of a concentrated voice. By spending as little as $35, a gun owner can help protect the right to own firearms for themselves, their families and other Americans. Yet the NRA has less than 5 million members out of 100 million gun owners.  If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

The NRA has launched a program to allow anyone to gain a lifetime membership for just $300.  Call  888-678-7894 and ask for a $300 lifetime membership. You will become a voting member and will never have to pay another annual membership fee.

Every gun owner in America should take advantage of this or the $35 membership to protect our Second Amendment civil rights, which the government is intent on infringing upon more, each and every day.

Progressives misrepresent.  They lie to get their way.  Obama, Biden and Feinstein keep describing small caliber modern sporting rifles as Military Assault Weapons and killing machines.  All firearms are machines and all firearms can kill.  In fact an AR15 .223 or 5.56 caliber round is at the LOW end of bullet size. 

Liberal fascists are willing to do whatever it takes to get their way. Are you willing to stop them with the most effective means available?  If so, join the NRA today

Bloomberg Funds Illegal Mayors Against Guns 

Billionaire Mayor Michael McFacist Bloomberg is the single biggest threat to freedom in America.  The most bigoted group of politicians in the country is Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which is run by Bloomberg.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a front group formed by New York City Mayor Bloomberg to support more federal restrictions on guns.  The real purpose of the group is to regulate civilian gun ownership out of existence. 

It should be named Illegal Mayors Against All Guns. Check here to see if your mayor is a member of this group of Illegal Mayors .  Spend your time and treasure to expose these subversive mayors and remove them from office. Two mayors in the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, the Mayor of Hurst and Desoto, are Gun Grabber members.
