Biloxi, Mississippi (Ammoland) What is the difference between and armed Oath Keeper and an Open Carry activist? Is there any real difference in the two? Sadly, those who should know better are making the moral equivalent to the moron standing in Starbucks with an SKS and a US Army veteran sworn to uphold the US Constitution by oath. Paul has a few words to say on that subject.

The tax slaves and their slave masters in the United Kingdom just will not stop the insanity. We have even more Anarchy in the UK for you. This time a three year old boy and his toy have the weak and spineless tinkling in their panties. Our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week wants to discuss defensive ammo and we are happy to oblige.

Good thing there’s ready access to guns in America – keeps us safe.

NOT.

The biggest lie of the extremist gun lobby (which I differentiate from the legitimate and reasonable gun lobby). There is no hard statistical data to support this oft-repeated claim – and, in fact, most gun-related deaths are the results of crimes (murders/robberies), suicides, and domestic disputes, with only a tiny portion related to self-defense. Easy-access to guns led directly to the shooting of the two journalists in Virginia. Students of the gun again get an “F” for failing to do their homework.

Typical nonsense. If the accidental inclusion of the second amendment in the U.S. Constitution hadn’t happened – such a provision is in no other country’s constitution in the world – we wouldn’t have a bunch of idiots running around screaming about their right to needlessly carry semi-automatic rifles and whatnot in public. The second amendment was very long ago hijacked by special-interest groups like the NRA after the NRA, originally a legitimate sportsmam’s organization, was hijacked by people proclaiming the need –and alleged right– for everyone to carry guns. Totally ansurd, and unnecessary. Paranoiac wannabe tough guys, all. Great idea… Read more »

Apparently, TV news anchors now need to be armed too. What a great idea!

That makes perfect sense in the twisted logic now prevailing in the disintegrating society of USA.

WRONG! The NRA was not originally a “Sportsman’s group. It was established by a couple of U.S. Generals to promote marksmanship in the USA. The recruits from the big chitties during the civil war were such P— Poor shots they wanted to change that. The old army civilian marksmanship program teamed up with the NRA to get guns into civilian hands so they could lean to shoot straight. When the NRA was demonized by the left the relationship was discontinued and the CMP was born. Miller vs US. The sawed off shotgun Miller got convicted of possessing was declared to… Read more »

The difference between the 2 is simple: The Open Cary advocate is carrying a long gun (presumably) in public as an act of political expression, in order to call attention to gun laws, etc. The Oath Keeper is carrying a long gun in public for protection, as he goes about helping to protect local businesses and/or homes from riotous mobs. Any similarity is purely superficial. Also, referring to the open carry activist as a “moron,” is uncalled for, and suggests a startling lack of knowledge of how and why they are doing what they do, as well as how effective… Read more »

Markel’s now an apologist for Bloomberg & MDA. You either support ALL gun rights OR you enable the anti’s in their goal for disarmament. PLEASE no more FUDDS and BUTTERS. Stop listening to this MORON.

This is a tough call. If a person or persons are exersizing there right to protest that is one thing but to burn down homes and business that is an act of terrorism. Home owners and business owners should have the right to defend them selves and carry open. Were is there rights? The police deal with scum everyday. That is stressful. If you watched the news close you would see what is happening[gang bangers shooting with there guns side ways and in the air how stupid] eliminate the gangs and the problem will die. If you listen to this… Read more »
