Paul Ryan (R-WI) to Cut Gun Control Deal, Major Vote Next Week

From Ammoland.com

Wisconsin – -(Ammoland.com)- While you and I prepare for a weekend of R&R in celebration of this nation’s freedom, Wisconsin Republicrat Paul Ryan is working behind the scenes to crush what little freedom you and I have left.

That’s right, Ryan — according to a story on AmmoLand News and again on rollcall.com yesterday, “House Plans Vote on Guns Next Week” — will urge the U.S. House early next week to vote for “a counterterrorism package that will include a provision to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns” and a so-called mental health bill that will effectively disarm and prohibit gun ownership for millions of Americans without due process based on phony junk science and the “diagnoses” from any anti-gun doctor with an axe to grind.

Of course, these politicians — people who have made a career out of habitual lies and broken promises — are trying to reassure gun owners that they will build in an appeals process for anyone wrongly placed on the government’s East-German Stasi-style secret watchlists.

Yeah, right.

As our friends at Gun Owners of America points out here, even IF there is an appeals process for being wrongly placed on a watchlist (as millions of Americans are) no one will be able to afford the attorneys’ fees to fight that legal battle.

Sadly, the institutional gun lobby is offering a so-called “compromise” which will arguably be just as bad as the anti-gunners’ bill … all in an attempt to try to look ‘reasonable.’

You and I know that’s a very, very bad strategy: like trying to feed scraps of meat to the crocodile that’s about to eat you.

Anti-gun bills being introduced include:

  • Obama’s “No-Fly, No Guns” program, labeling you a “terrorist” because some bureaucrat doesn’t like your political views.
  • Implement mental health gun ban, so any hand-picked “doctor” can declare you mentally unfit to own firearms … with no due process or right to appeal.

Again, this attack on our firearm freedom will be launched right after politicians return from the July 4th 2016 recess — so after getting rested up during a weekend of phony homage to freedom, they will turn right around next week and attack your freedom.

Call Paul Ryan’s Office and tell him what you think of this!

Rock River Patriots Meeting This Friday January 8th

The Rock River Patriots are having a meeting this Friday, January 8th, in Fort Atkinson at the Dwight Foster Library beginning at 6:00 pm.  The Dwight Foster Library is located at 209 Merchants Avenue.

At this meeting we welcome State Assembly Rep. Cody Horlacher to discuss what is happening in Madison as the legislative session draws to a close.  We will also discuss current events and initiatives.  Hope to see you all there!

 

Upcoming Events

 

Pro-Life Rally in Madison at the State Capitol on January 12th at noon.
Here is the event flyer with more information: Rally for Life Press Release_TIME_CHANGE

Contact Your Legislators

Contact your legislators in support the upcoming right to work bill as well as being repeal of the 48 hour waiting period for handgun purchases.

Right to work is all about personal freedom. An individual should not have to be forced into joining a union just because of their chosen career field is one dominated by unions.  The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday,  February 24th.  Invited speakers will go first (likely taking up first 2-3 hours) then the public will have the opportunity to testify.  RTW hearing, February 24th, 10:00 am in Room 411 South of the State Capitol  (Senate’s Labor Committee).

Senate Bill 35 and Assembly Bill 49 – Repealing the 48 hour waiting period on handgun purchases only makes sense.  A buyer has a background check completed as part of the purchasing process . The other thing to recognize is that the 48 hour waiting period does not apply to long guns. If a person is determined to do harm to someone else using a gun, it is very easy for them to obtain a long  gun without the 48 hour waiting period.  Finally, as we always need to mention, criminals do not obey the law anyway. These measures simply infringe on the law abiding citizens natural right of self-defense.

ALERT! Over the weekend the Speaker of the Assembly, Rep. Robin Vos spoke out IN FAVOR of Common Core at the Racine GOP Caucus!

On Saturday, February 21st, Rep. Robin Vos spoke about Common Core at the Racine County GOP caucus.  He said: “Common Core isn’t bad and it’s just a bunch of goals everybody would agree with.”

Rep. Vos is spreading a myth and this is very, very dangerous!
We all know that Common Core is much more than “just a bunch of goals”.  It is a Big Government/Big Business takeover of public education, a standardization of our children’s minds, an objectification of our teachers, and a removal of local control from our school systems.  Rep. Robin Vos and Governor Scott Walker must be made aware that we do not appreciate such dismissive remarks about such a crucial issue.
Our calls for will be to:

Rep Robin Vos – Speaker – (608) 266-9171
(also email Rep. Vos at Rep.Vos@legis.wisconsin.gov)
Governor Scott Walker – (608) 266-1212
(also email Governor Walker at govgeneral@wisconsin.gov)

You can use a message similar to the following:

“I understand that, over the weekend, Rep. Robin Vos said that Common Core is ‘just a bunch of goals everyone would agree with’.  Well, I DON’T AGREE WITH COMMON CORE.  Its goals are to standardize education in America in a way that demoralizes teachers, removes local control of schools from parents and taxpayers, disrespects differences among students, and profits big education corporations.  We can’t afford this.  The cost to us in terms of dollar, our children’s future, and academic freedom is just too high.  Why won’t Rep. Vos join Governor Walker and push for a COMPLETE REPEAL of Common Core?”

Gun Control = More Crime

 

The Shotgun – A True Story of Gun Control

The Shotgun – A True Story of Gun Control

by TheLasersShadow

You’re sound asleep when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door.  Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with fear, you hear muffled whispers.  At least two people have broken into your house and are moving your way.

With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun. You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open it.

In the darkness, you make out two shadows.  One holds something that looks like a crowbar.  When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike, you raise the shotgun and fire.  The blast knocks both thugs to the floor.  One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door and lurches outside.

As you pick up the telephone to call police, you know you’re in trouble.  In your country, most guns were outlawed years before, and the few that are privately owned are so stringently regulated as to make them useless..

Yours was never registered.  Police arrive and inform you that the second burglar has died.  They arrest you for First Degree Murder and Illegal Possession of a Firearm.

When you talk to your attorney, he tells you not to worry: authorities will probably plea the case down to manslaughter.

“What kind of sentence will I get?” you ask.

“Only ten-to-twelve years,” he replies, as if that’s nothing.  “Behave yourself, and you’ll be out in seven.”

The next day, the shooting is the lead story in the local newspaper.  Somehow, you’re portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the two men you shot are represented as choirboys.  Their friends and relatives can’t find an unkind word to say about them..

Buried deep down in the article, authorities acknowledge that both “victims” have been arrested numerous times.  But the next day’s headline says it all: “Lovable Rogue Son Didn’t Deserve to Die.”  The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin Hood-type pranksters.

As the days wear on, the story takes wings.  The national media picks it up, then the international media.  The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.  Your attorney says the thief is preparing to sue you, and he’ll probably win.

The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized several times in the past and that you’ve been critical of local police for their lack of effort in apprehending the suspects.

After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you would be prepared next time.  The District Attorney uses this to allege that you were lying in wait for the burglars.

A few months later, you go to trial.  The charges haven’t been reduced, as your lawyer had so confidently predicted.

When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of it all works against you.  Prosecutors paint a picture of you as a mean, vengeful man.  It doesn’t take long for the jury to convict you of all charges.  The judge sentences you to life in prison.

This case really happened!!!

On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk, England, killed one burglar and wounded a second.

In April, 2000, he was convicted and is now serving a life term.  How did it become a crime to defend one’s own life in the once great British Empire?

It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.  This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to those who had a license.

The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only handguns but all firearms except shotguns..

Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.

Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the Hungerford mass shooting in 1987.  Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets shooting everyone he saw.  When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of “gun control”, demanded even tougher restrictions.

(The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even though Ryan used a rifle.)

Nine years later, at Dunblane, Scotland , Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public school.

For many years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally unstable, or worse, criminals. Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding gun owners.  Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns.

The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later, sealed the fate of the few sidearms still owned by private citizens.

During the years in which the British government incrementally took away most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.

Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were threatened, claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a gun.

Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while the real criminals were released.

Indeed, after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as saying, “We cannot have people take the law into their own hands.”

All of Martin’s neighbors had been robbed numerous times, and several elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs who had no fear of the consequences.  Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his collection trashed or stolen by burglars.

When the Dunblane Inquiry ended, citizens who owned handguns were given three months to turn them over to local authorities.  Being good British subjects, most people obeyed the law.  The few who didn’t were visited by police and threatened with ten-year prison sentences if they didn’t comply.

Police later bragged that they’d taken nearly 200,000 handguns from private citizens.

How did the authorities know who had handguns? Kind of like cars. Sound familiar?

WAKE UP AMERICA; THIS IS WHY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS PUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT IN OUR CONSTITUTION.

“…It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,

tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people’s minds..”

–Samuel Adams

If you think this is important, please forward to everyone you know.

Gun Laws that are being proposed in America will eventually cause the same effect here!

Commentary On The Conneticut Mass Shooting

Below is a video with some thoughts from “Nutnfancy” that echos much of what we think.  Nutnfacy is a retired Lt. Col. in the US Air Force pilot and has channel on YouTube where he gives independent reviews on different guns and gear.

We very much believe that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has it right by calling up his posse to patrol schools.  There is no need to enlarge government to do a job that trained civilians/parents can do.  Possibly in a later post, I will give more details on why this is a good idea.
