Ever wonder why the gun-control crowd who insist on trigger locks
don't ever explain that using them may rather
increase accidental shootings
What's MORE important? Public safety, or their control!? "When it comes to
'safe-storage', the real tragedy is that, despite all the
professed concerns about 'the children', the anti-self-defense lobby has no
qualms in playing politics with the lives of children." Dave

Think about it... What do we insist upon before allowing children to use 'deadly
missiles' commonly called automobiles? We demand education and proficiency from
Similarly, the NRA attempts to educate children about 'miniature missiles' commonly
called bullets (and firearms). But why does the gun-control gang regularly refuse

Think or heard that the NRA trains vigilantes? Think again...
For the sixth straight year, the National Rifle Association's Law Enforcement
Activities Division (LEAD) has trained a record number of our nation's law
enforcement officers to become law enforcement firearm instructors.

"Although there is more per capita firepower in Switzerland
than any place in the world, it is one of the safest places to be. Switzerland is
the proof in the pudding of the argument that guns don't cause crime."
Back in America, " After the Great War, the Congress, after hearing laudations
about Swiss shooting skills, enacted the Civilian Marksmanship Program,
which continues to this day..."
Switzerland - Swiss Armed Neutrality in World War II
"In 1943, Adolf Hitler proclaimed that "all the rubbish
of small nations existing in Europe must be liquidated". In his diaries Josef
Goebbels described Switzerland as "this stinking little state." Yet, as the Nazi
tide spread across Europe from the Pyrenees to the Volga, one nation stood free,
albeit armed to the teeth - its flag unbowed in a sea of twisted
"The sound of our guns is the sound of freedom."
How often do Americans use guns for defensive purposes?
"the number of people saved annually by guns would still be at least 40,000"
"... [W]hen a robbery victim does not defend himself, the robber
succeeds 88 percent of the time, and the victim is injured 25 percent of the time.
When a victim resists with a gun, the robbery success rate falls to 30 percent,
and the victim injury rate falls to 17 percent. No other response to a robbery
– from drawing a knife to shouting for help to fleeing – produces
such low rates of victim injury and robbery success."
In 2007, the LEAD trained a record 2,061 law enforcement instructors in the tactical
use of handguns, shotguns, patrol rifles, select-fire and long-range rifles.
"Every year, the NRA is proud to say that we have helped keep the public safe
by providing state-of-the-art training to law enforcement instructors," said
Kayne Robinson, Executive Director of NRA General Operations.
Since 1960, LEAD has trained more than 50,000 such instructors, and more than
12,000 NRA Certified Instructors are currently training police officers and
military personnel at home and abroad. For more information visit the LEAD website.

“Very clearly, Governor Reagan — a long-time member of NRA —

that the Right to Keep and Bear Arms applies to the individual

'If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace, we ask not your
counsel or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains rest
lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.'
Samuel Adams, Philadelphia State House, 1776
"Your laws ignore our deepest needs, Your words are empty air
You've stripped away our heritage, You've outlawed simple prayer
Now gunshots fill our classrooms, And precious children die
You seek for answers everywhere, And ask the question "Why"?
You regulate restrictive laws, Through legislative creed
And yet you fail to understand, That God is what we need!"

'Separation of Church and State' is unconstitutional non-sense!
Article XII, Section 1
of New York's Constitution covers both the "organized" and

obligation of all persons within the state. The legislature shall provide for
the discharge of this obligation and for the maintenance and regulation of an

"'The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.'
The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not
militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely
as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in
upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained:
the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to
the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is
repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right."

The Anti-Perot by Fred Siegel
"But from the perspective of 2007's angry voters, Bloomberg is on the wrong side of these issues. He hasn't spoken much about Iraq, but what he has said has been largely supportive of President Bush. He not only supports the immigration bill, but he also doesn't see massive illegal immigration as a problem. He is the personification of inequality, of a social hierarchy in which the super-rich seem to have seceded from the rest of the country. As for out-of-control government spending, Bloomberg's budgets have grown at twice the rate of inflation. And when it comes to outsourcing, Bloomberg built his fortune on the growth of the global economy. Rather than representing an alternative, Bloomberg incarnates the very things people are angry about.
Bloomberg argues that his wealth makes him immune to being bought. He's right, but the problem of money corrupting politics doesn't go away. Bloomberg merely reverses the process. He uses his fortune to buy interest groups, who can then impose their agenda on the rest of the population through him. 'Money-bags Mike,' as he has been described in both New York and D.C., represents what liberals of an older vintage, and most Americans in general, have long feared—the marriage of money and power."
Ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN...
"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here
in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be
treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to
discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.
But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American,
and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any
man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at
all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but
one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for
but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
