"The [SAF] today accused MSNBC of using deceptively-edited video ... to invent a racial stereotype in its on-going effort to demonize and marginalize American firearms owners as 'racists.'"

"The MSNBC video ... shows an AR-15 rifle being carried over a man's shoulder. The ... Brewer notes on camera, 'Yes, there are Second Amendment rights, for sure, but also there are questions about whether this has a racial overtone. I mean, here you have a man of color in the presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waist. . .'"

"What MSNBC purposely did not reveal with the deliberately doctored video is that the man carrying that sport-utility rifle was an African-American,' said SAF founder nAlan Gottlieb" ...
 

National Three Percenter Meeting Called: In the middle of a huge demonstration in DC on 12 September.

The March on Washington on 12 September will likely represent the culmination of all the anger and resentment that the Obamanoids' various grabs for power have generated all over the country. We have all, I think, participated in various Tea Parties in our local AOs and have experienced the indignation, the building rage at being forced by our "betters" to shut up, pay up and do what we are told. For the first time in my life, I think liberty-loving people, every-day folks, are ready to march in the streets in numbers. And frankly, I want to be there when they do. . . The march . . . is about liberty. And where people demanding liberty are, that's where the Three Percent need to be.
 

Can Obama's anti-gun OSHA pick be stopped?

"We followed up in yesterdays discussion about David Michaels, Obama's nominee to head the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, by looking at past attempts to frame guns in terms of public health. Exploiting it to further citizen disarmament is something the academic left, from which Michaels hails, has been pursuing for years." ...

"So what is likely in store for gun owners first if Michaels is confirmed?"

"From Hans Bader, the Competitive Enterprise Institute's Senior Attorney and Counsel for Special Projects, writing at Examiner.com:"
"This raises the specter of federal restrictions on the storage or carrying of firearms in or near workplaces (even though some businessmen in high-crime areas possess guns to protect themselves against armed robbers)." ...

"Industry wide, a lot of the new guns introduced and promised at the SHOT Show the first of the year have been held up. The reason is that demand for certain current-line models has been so great that to keep up with it, the newer entries had to be pushed to the back burner. It’s true of many companies, and it is certainly true of Smith & Wesson."

"I'm presently at a gun writers' seminar in Tulsa, on the splendid USSA (United States Shooting Academy) range. We're getting to play with some of the cool new rifles and handguns from this maker that should have been available to the consumers by now…and would have been, if the post-election gun buying frenzy natinwide hadn't thrown production schedules into a cocked hat." ...

"The U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in a 3-0 opinion that it is legal for a federal, state, or local government to require gun registration and that there is no Constitutional conflict."

"Of course the man she is referring to ... was carrying a semi-automatic AR-15, not an automatic weapon.

But Nugent did have a job as a columnist for the Waco Tribune-Herald, which recently came under new ownership.

Doomed to fail: Latest Chicago gun "buy-back" scheme focuses on "assault-type" weapons

"... Mayor Daley announced a continuation of his failed gun 'buy-back' program. ... if a resident turns in an 'assault-type gun' they get a $100 gift card from the City." ...

"Gun advocates can trot out limitless reasons to own what Daley calls an 'assault weapon,' including target shooting, collecting, self-defense and competition shooting. Plus, the simple fact is the right to bear arms as affirmed in the U.S Constitution means citizens don't need a reason to own a gun."

"Although not always listed by pro-gun advocates, Daley's anti-gun policies are a primary reason to own an 'assault type gun.' Since, without the right to bear arms, freedom hating elected officials like Daley can impose their views on the citizenry." ...

Meet Calvin Lockner, aka "Hitler." Calvin is a convicted sex-offender who, with two other brave young Aryan lads, beat up an old black man fishing under a bridge in a park in Maryland. They knocked him to the ground, kicked him, beat him with fists and a baseball bat, then stole $19 from his wallet and his car. Cowardly bastards.

Now if Maryland allowed its law-abiding citizens to carry firearms in parks, then this elderly citizen could have killed all three of these scum-suckers in righteous self defense, and the gene pool could have been saved from possible future pollution.

Another missed opportunity courtesy of killer citizen disarmament laws.

"Cocco says that the 'gun guys' were 'displaying their perfectly state-permitted firearms.'"

"No, Ms. Cocco. That’s not the way it works. The right to keep and bear arms has nothing to do with some type of permission or license from the state. It is a fundamental right that preexists the state. ..." ...

"Some members of the media have their knickers all in a bunch over the presence of armed protesters outside the Phoenix venue where President Obama spoke on Monday. CNN’s Rick Sanchez and Ed Henry spent a few minutes Tuesday discussing the potentially dire implications of citizens simultaneously exercising both their First and Second Amendment rights. Henry waded into the crowd outside the president's appearance and was startled by the sight of a man carrying what he described as an AR-15 rifle. 'It's kind of jarring,' said Henry, 'to see an assault weapon in the middle of the street.' And indeed it would be for many people, but not, apparently, for residents of Arizona. ..." ...

"THE HOSTILITY and anger on display at some recent town hall meetings have disturbed us. ... The presence of firearms near events with President Obama this month, however, took our concern to a whole new level."

"It seems to have started when William Kostric decided to show up outside the president's health-care forum in New Hampshire last week with a gun strapped to his leg. ... On Monday, a dozen gun-toting men, including one with an assault rifle, were outside Mr. Obama's speech to veterans in Phoenix. The Department of Homeland Security has warned about an increase in right-wing extremism ... So anxiety over the threat posed by armed men at political events cannot be sloughed off merely as paranoia." ...

"It seems to me the men are making the statement; 'Obama cannot take our guns away!' ... Police could not take action on the armed men, as there is no way to ban their weapons according to law."

"John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln were both assassinated years ago. Wouldn't you think police would be concerned about Obama's safety? Not only should Obama be protected, the innocent bystanders’ safety should be just as important. How is it possible that Americans can just pull out a gun and walk around town?" ...

"In today's world, some think it's OK to scream in fury at elected officials, especially when their real goal is to get television face time."

"Toting an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle on your back and a 9 mm pistol on your hip to protest a presidential speech, as a man did in Phoenix on Monday, is more political theater, especially because an organizer said Phoenix police were told ahead of time that the gun-toter would be there." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
