The above linked article does a good job to demonstrate why “the price of liberty is eternal vigilance”. We have spoken out repeatedly against the NEOCONs because they truly do not represent the Constitution as they claim.
One of the people listed in the linked story is Bill Kristol, editor of the Weekly Standard, a neocon magazine. John McManus of the John Birch Society has done a great job in a presentation explaining the NEOCONSERVATIVE AGENDA. Bill Kristol’s father, Irving Kristol, wrote a book about the Neoconservative Agenda and was a former Trotskyite. Followers of Leon Trotsky, called Trotskyites, were followers of a form of Marxist theory. Trotsky considered himself an orthodox Marxist and a Bolshevik-Leninist. Watch the video, and see for yourself. We can conclude from Kristol’s comments that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Also contained in the above link is the PINHEAD Bill O’Reilly, proving once again he is no friend of liberty. We have the video below for you to view. O’Reilly’s analysis is full of factual inaccuracies and will not even allow the congressman time to explain anything. O’reilly is deliberately misleading his viewers calling for regulation of “heavy weapons” and “machine guns”. They are ALREADY regulated by the BATF, requiring a background check, 6 month wait, and tax-stamp. AK-47’s and AR-15’s sold at gun shows are NOT machine guns. A machine gun is defined as a rifle that has the ability to fire fully automatic, meaning one trigger pull results in the gun firing multiple rounds. The guns sold are semi-automatic rifles meaning one round is fired with each trigger pull. These guns have the same size bullets that are used in hunting rifles. They are NOT “heavy weaponry” as O’reilly would have you believe.
Guns are not the problem, but rather the lack of guns. No amount of government oversight can prevent a tragedy that is perpetrated by someone who is on a “homicidal mission”. The theater in Aurora Colorado was posted as a “No Carry” location. This just proves that gun control and gun-free zones are successful…if you are a nut, bent on going on a massive killing spree.
Maybe the Aurora Colorado shooter could have been stopped by an armed citizen. Maybe not. The fact remains that we will never know. What does remain, however, is that by taking away a person’s ability to defend themselves, you are emboldening the potential assailant. What might have been the deciding factor in deterring a “would-be shooter” for fear of armed resistance, is longer a threat to them when entering a “gun free zone” or a “no carry” location. It should give any “would-be shooter” pause, knowing there is the potential that someone may be shooting back. Yes…There are those “shooters” who have no fear of armed resistance. For those who are determined to carry out their homicidal intentions, it is why we advocate armed citizens to obtain quality firearms training and carry whenever possible.
In closing, here are a few quotes from our founding fathers about the importance of armed citizens:
No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms. (Thomas Jefferson: Draft Virginia Constitution, 1776.)
Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. (George Washington)
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, 3 J. Elliot, Debates in the Several State Conventions 45, 2d ed. Philadelphia, 1836)
