Time to Battle The Insane Anti-Gun Mob With Knowledge & Truth

by Alan J Chwick & Joanne D Eisen

Ban Guns Black Rifle Protest Protestors
Let's start with the term “assault rifles.” The LEFT has been messing with gun truths for decades. They twisted the truth to confuse, and frighten, the masses about “rifles.”

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- President Trump fights for us every day, and we, at the grassroots level, must back him up 100%. We, as gun owners, are outraged, and we need to use our anger to get moving. We call on all of you, to start/continue to fight. We must KEEP THE US SENATE and HOUSE in the 2018 midterms.

The legalized invasion of the President's attorney should leave no doubt, in your minds, that the LEFT will do anything it can to retain power, damn the consequences, of our nation and our families.

The LEFT is dragging us closer and closer to another civil war. And, we don't know what's on the other side of that civil war, and we would instead not find out. We may be armed and ready with all the iron we need, but we do not like, nor want, that violent path. Violence, though, maybe the last refuge of the incompetent LEFT, and there are hopefully, still, other paths we have not yet explored.

We all need to know, with certainty, that our philosophy is fully grounded in truth. We can face down the crazies that are marching in lockstep ready to burn our Constitution, with nothing more than our resolve of the certainty of our love of the US Constitution.

But, right now, we are divided by ignorance. A report by Steven Shepard finds firm evidence that Republicans do favor stronger gun control laws. Of the responders to a Politico poll, 68% are in favor of another ban on “assault rifles.”

Here is a recent Quinnipiac Poll, Table Number 57 gives the stats on an “assault weapons ban,” by age, sex, party, and education, and also gives trending data. A total of 67% support such a useless ban on assault weapons. PLEASE REALIZE, THESE NUMBERS REPRESENT US! WE ARE THOSE STATS! Why?

One gun owner, “inspired” by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, went so far as to destroy his AR 10 and AR 15 in a very public way. Folks, this is our people, a gun owner!

Do we blame this situation on our ignorance? We do not all know all the details, and so we let the devil do his work. To cure this, we must all learn to teach our brethren. We all have to correct these weak and insecure gun owners. We must join together to strengthen our group.

It's time to get to work. NOW!

  • Find a friend who reads well.
  • Find a friend who speaks well.
  • Find a friend who can organize.
  • Find a friend whom can motivate.
  • Stay engaged, get things moving and welcome all comers.

If everyone around you knew the truth about so-called “assault rifles” all the polls, faked or not, would reflect greater sanity.

If you, and your friends, think you know everything you need to know, then you must ask why does your county or state still have any gun laws that are based on bias and racism? If you didn’t know, that is the origin of weapons laws. Why does your locality have such laws, especially if you all know the truth? Find your comfortable place, and spread the truth that frees us from the LEFT.

Gun laws that affect the law abiding do not work. In fact, gun laws may even be counterproductive, like the Gun-Free School Zones Act. So, we have to admit some ignorance on the subject.

Dirty Tricks Of The Left

Let's start with the term “assault rifles.” That term didn't just start when Trump was nominated. The LEFT has been messing with gun truths for decades. They twisted the truth to confuse, and frighten, the masses about “rifles.” And even some gun owners bought the lies. To the LEFT, almost anything beyond a single-shot, bolt action rifle, is an “assault rifle.”

Joe Tartaro, a long time Second Amendment proponent, and author explained what happened in his article, ‘The Great Assault Weapon Hoax.’ He wrote;

“The push to ban scary looking guns is a conjuring trick devised by devout anti-gunners in and out of government who will settle for banning some guns on their way to banning them all.”

Tartaro discusses tactics of deceit such as suppressing evidence and the attempt to show on TV that ammo from the targeted weapons was more potent by shooting an exploding melon.

What Assault Rifle Means
What Assault Rifle Means?

Here's what happened. Josh Sugarman, of the Violence Policy Center, deliberately created a fabricated fraud, as great as the Trump-Russia Collusion Hoax, which our President is now battling. Sugarman and his ilk think that it’s OK to lie to people to make them act against their own best interests.

According to David Kopel, Sugarman suggested, and normalized, into the public discussion, words, and phrases such as, but not limited to: assault weapons, armor_piercing bullets, machine guns, plastic guns, etc. He made them as daily usage. The rifles became menacing looking, and Sugarman coupled that with the public's confusion over fully automatic firearms versus ordinary semi-automatic rifles, cause they looked similar. All this increased the chance of public support for restrictions on these rifles. And the lying LEFT media pushes these normalized words and phrases.

David Kopel explains that this misinformation still remains as part of American culture. But we gun owners should all know that there is a difference between full auto and semi-auto firearms. Aaron Blake explains the bait-and-switch language deception.

So, our nation happily accepted a ten-year “assault weapons ban” in 1994. The ban was not renewed because even anti-gun researchers could not find any statistical benefit. The government report is here, and some additional information is here.

Now, despite any proof of benefit, the liars of the LEFT are attempting to spring right into another “assault weapons ban,” including adding some handguns.

While this may not become law soon, there will be media hype designed to confuse and mislead the public, and it will boost their fear of guns. They think they can get a better start on banning semi-autos this time around because of the school massacres.

We are not attempting to deal adequately with the topic of “assault weapons” lies, but to give you a place to jump-start a local discussion group for all who are interested. You can start with the articles linked to in this piece, and we suggest that you make a library of gun truths for future reference.

There is no safety in disarmament. Gun laws only affect the law-abiding. The black market trumps all restrictive laws and only outlaws keep their guns.
The law-abiding gun owners should not accept the stupidity of the masses and the contempt of the power mongers. Let's get teaching, and educating our family and friends.

Next time, we hope to discuss the lies surrounding the NICS checks system.

    1. The anti-gun people couldn’t care less about knowledge and truth. Neither one will have any effect upon them as logic doesn’t abide in their little fantasy world. For them, it’s all about sound bites and “feelings”. You can’t win an argument using common sense with someone who has none.

    2. A few quotes from the Framers and other individuals of note, read and head:

      “A Government that does not trust its law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms, is itself, unworthy of trust.” –James Madison, chief wordsmith of the Constitution

      “Any government that would attempt to disarm its people is despotic; and any people that would submit to it deserve to be slaves.”- Stephen F. Austin, 1835

      “The historical reality of the Second Amendments protection of the right to keep and bear arms is not that it protects the right to shoot deer. It protects the right to shoot tyrants, and it protects the right to shoot at them effectively, with the same instruments they would use upon us.” –Judge Andrew Napolitano, Molon Labe

      “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress shall have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American … The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the People.”-TENCH COXE, 1788

      “This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient and the world will follow our lead into the future.” -ADOLF HITLER, 1935

      “The attitude of people associating guns with nothing but crime, that is what has to be changed. I grew up at a time when people were not afraid of people with firearms.”-SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ANTONIN SCALIA

      “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be necessary until they try to take it.” -THOMAS JEFFERSON

      “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

      “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”– Richard Henry Lee, American Statesman, 1788

      “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow-citizens, the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” – TENCH COXE (1755–1824), writing as “A Pennsylvanian,” in “Remarks On The First Part Of The Amendments To The Federal Constitution,” in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789, p. 2 col. 1

      “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” – George Washington, First President of the United States

      “Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these:
      First, a right to life; Secondly, to liberty; Thirdly, to property; together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can. These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation, commonly called the first law of nature…
      In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defense of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property.
      If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave.” – SAMUEL ADAMS, THE RIGHTS OF THE COLONISTS

      “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, HISTORICAL REVIEW OF PENNSYLVANIA, 1759

      ABRAHAM LINCOLN Quotes, pay attention:

      “We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”

      “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

      “This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.”

      “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

      “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.” – ABRAHAM LINCOLN

      1. You have presented us all with viable arguments to confront those that desire to restrict our Constitutional rights, especially the 2nd Amendment. We here in Oregon are facing a ballot measure to outlaw ALL semi-auto firearms, from pistols to even .22 rifles in the mistaken delusion that will stop mass murders, and the sad thing is the measure was the produck of a religious conglomerate. thankfully, we have until the November to educate tour fellow Oregonians about how misleading this ill-conceived effort by these anti-gun zealots. They ignore that God gave us all the power to defend ourselves and our families from evil, remember David and Goliath?

    3. I have an old Webster Dictionary from 1994 with a definition for Assault Rifle, it states: a military automatic rifle with a large capacity magazine.
      The anti gunners don’t know what their talking about and need to be corrected everytime.

    4. TRUTH ? TRUTH !
      THEY CAN”T HANDLE THE TRUTH !
      Put these ANTI’s back 200 yrs. and they’d
      claim a Musket was an ASS-AULT WEAPON !
      A Winchester repeater was a Machine gun !
      And 22’s were Designed for MASS – MURDER.
      Hell ! a Blunder buss was a SHORT BARRELED
      SHOT GUN ! that was an assault weapon back then !

    5. Frankly, you’re almost as bad as the victim disarmers.

      1. ‘President Trump fights for us every day, and we, at the grassroots level, must back him up 100%.”

      Proposed bump-fire stock ban, ERPOs, no due process, age limits, Fix NICS with its expanded prohibited persons not based on adjudications.

      2. “We must KEEP THE US SENATE and HOUSE in the 2018 midterms.”

      “We?” Here’s the real problem. Democrats are anti-RKBA for obvious reasons. But so are the Republicans. For the Republicans, the excuse is always “law and order,” and public safety. Officer safety. Looking like they “care.” Again, NICS, ERPOs, bump-fire. Add in Republicans sponsoring “assault weapon” bans. Hey, whatever happened to reciprocal carry in the Republican House, Senate, and White House? And on the First Amendment front, we now have SESTA-FOSTA (“But it’s for the children!” Even when it isn’t.) Whoa… Obamacare is still here; I distinctly remember Republicans campaigning on repeal.

      3. “Assault weapons” and assault rifles. Your conflation of the terms betrays your own ignorance. “Assault weapon” was coined in the late ’80s to deliberately confuse people (sheesh, you even mention it), to imply they were talking about assault rifles. “Assault weapons” at the time were imaginary (and still are in most jurisdictions. Assault rifles are a real thing, and have been for seven decades: shoulder-fired, select-fire weapon chambered in an intermediate power cartridge. As select-fire weapons, they are regulated under the NFA (and later FOPA). Yet, even YOU conflate the terms, doing the gun/people controllers’ work for them.

      4. “Now, despite any proof of benefit, the liars of the LEFT are attempting to spring right into another “assault weapons ban,” including adding some handguns.”

      So are Republican sponsors. And in case you didn’t notice, the _last_ federal “assault weapon ban” (“The Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act of 1994”) included handguns. And shotguns.

    6. In case anyone hasn’t noticed the Commiecrats are real impressed with truth or facts,of course to be a true believer in the orthodoxy of the party it helps to be able to shove ones head deeper in the sand or swill yet another glass of the Kool Aid.

    7. It doesn’t help when you start your article with a lie. “President Trump fights for us every day, and we, at the grass roots level, must back him up 100%.” Was he “fighting for us” when he said that bump stocks needed to go away and that he was going to make they did? I didn’t bother reading anything else.

    8. Having escaped from an ANTI gun state, I find the apathy and lack of awareness by gun owners in some Pro Gun states disturbing. — New laws are being pushed Nationwide in almost every state. When exercising a RIGHT gets you labeled ” Mentally ILL ” , there’s a big problem
