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

Lawsuit faults Gander Mountain for failure to read minds

Lawsuit faults Gander Mountain for failure to read minds



Gander Mountain's Rochester outlet sold guns to a customer who filled out and certified the veracity of her entries on ATF's Form 4473 "Over the Counter Transaction Record," and passed the NICS check, clearing the transfer of the guns. They're being sued for that by the Brady Center on behalf of shooting victims and families, because the purchaser then turned the guns over to a "prohibited" felon, who went on a shooting rampage.

Is Gander Mountain supposed to assign someone to follow all of the gun purchasers around to make sure they don't break any laws?



Gander Mountain is being sued for following the law to complete firearms transactions, and for not having ESP and being able to read minds, and look into the souls of other human beings. Gander Mountain is being sued for not having special powers and abilities not possessed by any other mortals, but expected and required of gun dealers.


I don't have ESP, so I guess I'm open to being sued if a customer goes on a shooting spree with a gun they gt from me. The judge should dismiss this under the "Lawful commerce in arms" act. It is supposed to protect manufacturers and dealers from frivolous lawsuits like this one. We have no control over what a  customer does when they walk out that door.



Suing a manufacturer or dealer over a defective product is one thing. This is completely different. As a dealer, I can tell you that a lawsuit like this scares the living hell right out of me.



Gander Mountain is being sued because it has deep pockets. And most of all, Gander Mountain is being sued because it has committed an unforgivable offense: It sells guns, a trade the antis are determined to impede, to harass, and ultimately, to terminate.


I don't have deep pockets. All it would take is the treat of a lawsuit and I  would be ruined. My very small business and probably even my home and cars would be gone just to try to find a reasonably competent attorney. That's what the gun  haters want. They want to put as many dealers as they can out of business. And Bloomberg is going to finance the effort.

Elijah Cummings’ Plan for a Police State Run by a Federal Czar

IRS targeting-advocate, Rep. Elijah Cummings, pictured below, and his Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) members, sent a letter Monday to President Obama demanding a police czar and national regulations that would in effect nationalize local police forces.

Elijah Cummings, enemy of the state.

YHGTBFSM! Can you stazi? I knew you could.

The letter calls for the appointment of a federal czar within the Justice Department to monitor and oversee local police departments that receive federal funding.
Read the rest and be as scared as you need to be.  This is the police state that Orwell showed us in 1984.

Imagine a boot  stomping on a human face, forever.

You need to be writing to your Congress critter and demanding that this crap has a stop put to it.

Don’t let a good crisis go to waste. It sounds like a new pen and phone action by Obama is coming our way.

Barney has the right idea.
