Police…… Turn Your Guns Over & Get a Prize ~ WoooHoooo!

We’re scratching our heads over this one…. Greensboro police have asked residents, anyone over 18, to voluntarily turn in their weapons.  That’s right, you heard it!  This is actually happening in North Carolina, our home State!  Read the article HERE.

But then again, just last week we read that Greensboro police were halting all traffic stops for minor infractions like a taillight or headlight out.  This is billed as their solution to “racial disparity” since a liberal UNC professor and his undergraduate researchers released information that black folks are four (4) times more likely to get pulled over by police (racial profiling) than white folks. What we can’t figure out is…. did anyone consider that a high percentage of minorities fall into a lower income category and may have a harder time maintaining their vehicles.  Read the article HERE. This policy change to end racial disparity most likely treats the symptom, not the root cause of the illness.

The “racial disparity” thing is believable, especially with all the liberal media hype.  But the vulnerability of the public will be tested with this voluntary weapons disposal scheme.  We are, most likely, preaching to the choir.  However, these two Liberal Progressive moves in one city within days of one another, set off multiple alarms in our heads.  Our Liberty is under assault in own backyard.  The second amendment is being tested by a liberal Police Chief supported by a liberal Democratic City Council.  Use this highlighted link to contact the City Council.  Call and question their rational for supporting this program. Go ahead, I dare you.  Let us know what they say!

Amendment II

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

There is no ambiguity, hiccup or doubt in the above text, no interpretation needed. In their wisdom the authors of the Constitution, our founding fathers, feared we would, one day, need protection from a government “gone wild”.  Seeing what is happening in Greensboro, the prudent gun owner should begin stocking up on ammo while the “sheeple” flock to the gun disposal bin for their consolation prize.  Voluntary gun disposal is a ploy to gain complete control over a populous, it is waste of taxpayer money, and it does not curb crime.  It only puts the innocent law abiding residents at risk by not having ample protection. 

Nothing good will ever come from big government.  Things are getting interesting with ISIS now threatening our homeland.  They have even released a list of cities they claim they may target. Relinquishing your weapons in a gun buy back program does not make the Top 10 list for preparedness (insert sarcasm). Germany began disarming it’s citizens in 1939 and then slaughtered 16 million Jews. More HERE.  Beware!  Though they are sold as such, programs like these are NOT about gun safety or curbing crime.  They ARE only about government CONTROL over a compliant populous.

Ya’ll think about it. We are.

House Bill 562 Expands Gun Rights & Nixes Jim Crow Holdout

On Wednesday, June 3rd, House Bill 562 made it’s way through the House rules panel (14-13) with the Chairman casting the tie-breaking vote. The Bill will now move to the House floor for a vote.  This bill, titled “An Act to Amend Various Firearm Laws” has created opinionated interpretation on how the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America should be applied here in North Carolina.

HB 562 would allow District Attorneys to carry concealed in the courtroom if they are Concealed Carry holders and would allow Legislators to conceal carry on the Legislative campus.  What has garnered more media attention than anything else in this bill is a provision that would allow gun purchase without obtaining a permit through the Sheriffs office, this provision taking effect in 2021. Gov. Pat McCrory and the North Carolina Sheriffs Association are opposed to this Bill.  There are also leftists that interpret the 2nd Amendment in a different manner as evidenced in this article from May 13th.

Public opinion is split along party lines with many 2nd Amendment supporters as proponents for this Bill.  It is well known that criminals will obtain guns by other means than a permit, so permitting is just more red tape and costs more for government to process, which, in turn, cost the taxpayers more.  There is also the, not so well known, fact that permitting was originally put in place to prevent blacks from purchasing firearms.  So this Bill would eliminate another Jim Crow era holdout.

One interesting component of this Bill is that heath care providers would be prohibited from asking their patients in a written questionnaire about gun ownership and would be disallowed from sharing information provide by patients collected verbally regarding firearm ownership.  Providers would face civil monetary penalties of up to $500 for disclosing such information.

We are not sure at this point just when this Bill will go to the House floor or what it’s fate might be but we’ll keep you informed.

Democrat Supported Planned Parenthood Kills Far More Than Guns Ever Will

Originally Written and Published: Tuesday, June 18, 2013 at 10:02 PM for the Kinston Free Press

Ask most people what Planned Parenthood is and they’ll tell you it’s designed to help young or financially challenged couples plan a family. Honestly, I had never looked at the meaning behind the name but was surprised and disgusted to find out the truth. More than a million babies are aborted in the U.S. each year through Planned Parenthood’s services. They call this “family planning.”
Planned Parenthood’s web site lists more than 750 locations around the country. Their mission statement states they “believe in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual’s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence.”
It continues to explain all services are complimentary, that they advocate the right to these services and promote research and education. This left me with more questions that needed answers.
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in 1921 under the name of American Birth Control League. Sanger was a racist and believed darker skinned people were inferior. She wanted to “assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit.” She believed in negative eugenics, an effort to cleanse society of hereditary traits considered unfit, and was an advocate for sterilization for the profoundly retarded.
Despite these facts, she is the founding hero of Planned Parenthood. Ironically, Sanger was an advocate for birth control but opposed abortion, calling it a “disgrace to civilization.”
How is Planned Parenthood funded? Revenues in 2011 were in excess of $1.219 billion with assets totaling $1.377 billion. This “not-for-profit” is 45 percent funded through your tax dollars. However, as funding goes up, abortions performed increase and real health services for women go down.
Planned Parenthood is “the most proficient killing machine in the United States” says Douglas Scott of Life Decisions International. Planned Parenthood offers free abortions by pill or in one of their clinics. Though it promotes safe sex, it also supports deviant sexual orientations and advocates for choice in gender identification.
Planned Parenthood does not represent what its name purports. It promotes abortion and undermines family values and marriage. It indoctrinates our youth with self-absorbed practices that replace God and family values with self and sex. Primarily, it supports and perpetuates a very lucrative abortion industry. Political agenda and money are motivating factors.
In an earlier guest column, I discussed the hypocrisy surrounding gun control and its link to abortion. Advocates for gun control also support abortion. Gun control is about control, not saving lives.
There are about 1.25 million children slaughtered through abortion each year. Less than 9,000 deaths can be attributed to guns each year. We are told that guns are bad and abortion is a right. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is a right. Abortion is a choice. A gun is neither good nor bad, as it is an inanimate object. Conversely, abortion goes against most world religious doctrines and certainly Christian teachings.
Abortion requires a human being to rationalize and follow through with the act of killing another human. How is that a right?
Planned Parenthood is another liberal progressive political tool used to indoctrinate those ignorant souls who believe poor choices have no consequences and “free stuff” has no price tag. Progressives don’t seem to value human life but will sacrifice liberty for this fodder. Planned Parenthood indoctrinates the weak and preys on the poor and misguided for political gain.
We collectively turn our heads allowing the killing of millions. You and I finance these services. Can you continue to watch our nation slide into moral destitution and spiritual decay? Life is precious.

Coming Home To What Matters Most

Sometimes it’s good to come back home.  It’s good to take stock of what really matters in the long run.  Things like “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”, concepts such as our liberty and our rights are granted by God, not man, that these states of the United States of America are sovereign and the federal government is not beholden to other nations.  With the threat of world terror by radical Islamic groups, it may help to know that Islam is an ideology not a religion.  This ideology has evil elements and comes with and instruction booklet, the Quran.

So here are a  few things to come back home to:

God and family are most important yet we will have neither lest we fend off the continued attack from the liberal progressive left.  My ancestors and perhaps yours relinquished themselves from the tyrannical rule of the King of England almost 240 years ago, shedding their blood for us.  Since then over a million men (women included) have died in battle defending the United States of America from attacks from outside and within our borders.  The Constitution of the United States of America is still the Supreme Law of the Land yet we have endured an administration over the last seven (7) years that has bastardized and disregarded our Constitution as rubbish.  Barack Obama has most openly, aggressively and arrogantly forced his socialist lies on the American people more so than any other President in the history of these United States of America.  He has increased the national debt more than all his predecessors combined since  the inception of this country.  But you can do your part to combat the assault.

The best way to affect change is locally.  Battles are won in your own back yard.  Thick skin is required and when you stand on principle you can’t lose.  The 1st Amendment is our best friend while the 2nd Amendment protects us from a tyrannical government.  This 2016 election cycle is pretty darned important but so is 2015.   The impact from the outcome of local races are felt the most.  School boards, City Councils and other elected  posts affect us where we are.   Get involved today.   Run for local office or help a conservative win an elected post.  We’re depending on you.
