THE FOUR RULES

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

Winston Churchill said
"A GENTLEMAN, SELDOM, IF EVER, NEEDS A GUN.
BUT WHEN HE DOES, HE NEEDS IT VERY BADLY!"
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

Anti-Gun Groups No Longer Fighting For Assault Weapons Bans


Alas, gun control groups seem to have moved away from so-called assault weapons bans for reasons pro-Second Amendment groups have espoused for months; they’re ineffective and represent a very small fraction of firearm-related homicides. Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America now calls such policy initiatives “nonstarters.” Nonetheless, that does not mean that these people have abandoned their support for such bans on certain types of firearms
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, is a significant player in a coalition financed by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
50 million of nanny Bloombergs money buys a lot of AstroTurf.
With more information, Watts decided that focusing on access to guns, not types of guns, was a smarter approach. She came to the same conclusion that other gun control groups had reached even before the Sandy Hook shootings: "Ultimately," she said, "what's going to save the most lives are background checks."
The only way universal background checks will work is to register every gun in the country. Students of history know where that leads. Registration=Confiscation=Extermination. A lesson well learned by people like Stalin, Mao and other genocide committing leaders.


As for background checks, they’re already virtually universal. Most gun owners buy from dealers with a federal firearms license who have to by law conduct a background check. Regardless, gun control advocates still perpetuate the myth that 40 percent of gun sales are conducted without a background check. John Lott tore into this narrative in January of 2013 
That 40% myth has been debunked over and over again. Yet they keep throwing it out there.

But the high figure comes primarily from including such transactions as inheritances or gifts from family members. Putting aside these various biases, if you look at guns that were bought, traded, borrowed, rented, issued as a requirement of the job, or won through raffles, 85 percent went through FFLs; just 15 percent were transferred without a background check.If you include these transfers either through FFLs or from family members, the remaining transfers falls to 11.5 percent.We don’t know the precise number today, but it is hard to believe that it is above single digits.

That hardly warrants federal action, especially since gun-related violence is down 39 percent since 1993. Pew Research has the figure higher, with a 49 percent decrease in firearm-related homicides. Then again, the American public is largely unaware that gun violence is down.

The public is unaware because the gun hating press wants the public worried about the crime rates. How else can they advance their agenda of control.

The Register's Editorial: 1 1/2 years later, VA still silent on patient's death

Read it all

 Bold is mine.
Eighteen months ago, Michael Deal, a 65-year-old Army veteran from Spirit Lake, died at the Veterans Affairs hospital in Des Moines. An internal investigation showed that a nurse, Bernard Nesbit, deliberately turned off the alarms that would have alerted the staff to Deal's rapidly decreasing blood-oxygen levels. Deal died was murdered, and Nesbit was fired.
 That part about the decreasing oxygen levels. Mr Deal suffocated to death. murdered just as sure as if he had shot him in the head. Just so he wouldn't be bothered. And yet, he's still a licensed nurse in the state of Iowa.



Where is our county Attorney? Turning off the alarms and allowing Mr. Deal to die is at the least, negligent homicide. It's been 1 1/2 years, why have NO charges been filed? 


Nesbit filed for unemployment benefits, which triggered a public hearing before an administrative law judge. At the hearing, Nesbit admitted switching off the patient alarms. 
He confessed to killing Mr. Deal in front of a judge. He wants unemployment? What he should get is a nice long prison sentence. 


That prompted the judge to ask the hospital's human resources specialist, Greg Smith, whether, in the seven months since the incident, the hospital had reported the matter to the state licensing board for nurses.
"No, we have not," Smith said. "We plan on it. We're just working through how that's to be done."
"What do you have to work through?" the judge asked.
"There's a lengthy process," Smith said. "It has to go up to the central office in the VA for approval to be reported to the state licensing board, and we're not sure how that process works."

7 months after the murder of Mr Deal And this scumbag is still a licensed nurse. All because some idiot bureaucrat doesn't know the procedure. 

But as unresponsive as the VA is, the state of Iowa doesn't fare much better. The Iowa Board of Nursing won't say whether the hospital ever filed a complaint regarding Nesbit. Nor will it say whether it is currently investigating Nesbit, whose license remains in good standing 18 months after Michael Deal died was murdered.
 It has been a year and a half since Michael Deal died while in the care of VA workers. His family and his fellow Iowans deserve to know whether the state and the VA are doing all they can to investigate cover up the matter.
Micheal Deal has been dead for 18 months, where is his justice?
