Where Chicago's problem begins.

Eric Holder stated that people must be brainwashed against guns and that is exactly what is going on Chicago public schools under the guise of "community organizing":

In this video, the woman who is speaking is blantantly pumping children's minds full of the bull that is typical of the gun control/ban movement: She equates licensed concealed carry to gang bangers shooting innocent kids, says the NRA wants everyone to have guns, etc. And any dissent by the students is quashed with appeals to emotion, facts be damned. It is textbook cult indoctrination. Now imagine if the NRA or even just a private individual went into a Chicago school lauding the ownership of firearms. Telling them about people who have saved lives with firearms or how much fun shooting can be. The gun control/ban movement would lose it's collective marbles (what few marbles they have). And if you dared to give Chicago school children a marksmanship lesson, they'd be calling for your arrest. That is the problem we face with Chicago, NYC, DC and other isolated urban enclaves. We have years of anti-gun indoctrination to erase before we can dare propose such simple things as allowing a licensed individual to carry a firearm.

Jesse Jackson needs to stay in his lane.

Yesterday, Jesse Jackson brought his Professional Victim Roadshow to my beautiful state.
OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson says his Rainbow PUSH Coalition will organize to change gun laws in Oklahoma, where a shooting spree recently terrorized residents in a predominantly black section of Tulsa.

Jackson and members of the Oklahoma Legislative Black Caucus met Wednesday at the state Capitol and talked to reporters about concerns over the case and other recent violence. The civil rights activist called the Tulsa incident a "terrorist attack" that sent "traumatizing waves of fear across Tulsa and the state."

"We cannot allow the terrorists to steal our dreams," Jackson said.


Jackson's Chicago-based Rainbow PUSH Coalition is supporting a ban on assault weapons, while challenging both legislation that would allow open carry of guns in Oklahoma and a current law that lets residents in that state use deadly force when necessary to protect themselves against death or great bodily harm.

That is rich. If five guys getting shot is a "terrorist attack", what do you call this? Armageddon? Jesse really needs to concentrate on the "terrorist attacks" in his own city before he goes meddling in the business of others.

And speaking of terrorists, what is it going to take to make Jesse and the rest of his fellow race hustlers realize that the only terrorists terrorizing the black community are other black people? If I were to be shot as I walked out of my front door, 9 times out of 10, my killer would look like Trayvon Martin, not George Zimmerman. In other words, for every 10 black men killed, 9 of them were killed by other black men. That has nothing to do with open carry, assault weapons, or Stand Your Ground laws. It has everything to do with the break down of the black family unit, in which Jesse's liberal handlers had a hand in.

So please, Jesse: Stay in your own lane. Go home. You may find a few wrong headed supporters here, but for the most part, Oklahomans do not like you, do not like what you represent, and do not desire the "society" that you are peddling to us.

My reply to Rachel Maddow and her guest.

It seems Rachel is completely oblivious to how Barack Obama has been and will be bad for gun owners.

First and foremost, Fast and Furious is the elephant in the room. It is the Obama/Holder/Emanuel gun doctrine in action. It is literally creating the serious crisis that won't go to waste. It is his administration's attempt at working under the radar as he promised his friends in the gun control/ban movement. The Obama administration is passing new laws while not only not enforcing the ones on the books, but intentionally breaking them by faciliating the illegal trafficking of firearms to Mexican drug cartels. That is a reason why Barack Obama cannot be given a second term.

Second, the Supreme Court. We've seen which direction one of President Obama's Supreme Court appointees leans when it comes to the Second Amendment. And it's not on the side of gun owners. I strongly suspect his second appointee is no different. And his third and possibly fourth appointees will be no better than the first. If gun owners wish to keep a Supreme Court that is friendly towards the Second Amendment, that is another reason why Barack Obama cannot be given a second term.

As for her guest, he seems to be completely off the rails, but i'll address him as well.

He says that Mitt Romney is calling a certain segment of the population to arms. I don't think Mitt did that. At least not in the literal sense. In the metaphorical sense? Perhaps. The notion that Mitt Romney is calling for gun owners to buy more guns and ammo is malarkey. We were going to do that anyway. A large number of us are simply looking at President Obama's record and beliefs, taking him for his word, and acting accordingly.

These guns and ammunition will not cause death in the streets. Millions upon millions of guns have been sold each year since the election of President Obama and the number of gun related homicides in the country has been relatively unchanged from it's 15-17k'ish number. If Mr. Burgess's claims were true, we'd have millions of gun related homicides per year. But we do not. In country with 80 million gun owners owning over 300 million firearms, the fact that only 0.0333% of those firearms cause injury or death is proof positive that our current laws (including Stand Your Ground work. To be incredibly blunt, trying to reduce that number falls into the realm of anal retentiveness.

And Ricky Burgess's rant on assault rifles is just standard anti-gun loonery. According to the FBI, you're twice as likely to be beaten to death with hands and feet than be murdered by anyone with a rifle of any kind, assault or not.

Mitt Romney is not the ideal Second Amendment supporter. He's really only a few check boxes away from having the same views on guns as Barack Obama. But a first term Mitt Romney is a lot less dangerous to gun owners than a second term Barack Obama.
