"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Thomas Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in Chapter 40 of "On Crimes and Punishment," 1764.
On August 15, 2008, a Texas school district voted to allow teachers to bring guns to class this fall. The plan, adopted by the Harrold Independent School District was approved by parents who understand the right to own and bear arms to protect and defend. This is a small, rural district 150 miles northwest of Fort Worth. This school district is also 30 long miles from the Sheriff's office. Leaving the teachers without a way to protect and defend themselves and their students is simply condoning any evil that befalls them. As Superintendent, David Thweatt, so astutely pointed out: "When the federal government started making schools gun-free zones, that's when all of these shootings started. Why would you put it out there that a group of people can't defend themselves? That's like saying 'sic 'em' to a dog."
Immediately, ignorant ninnies in the controlled, corporate media went ballistic with their usual inane comments. FAUX News Network's weekend bimbo, Alisyn Camerota, twittered on August 16, 2008, how alarming this was because "there are children in that school as young as kindergarten age!" Oh, dear. Here's a clue for Alisyn: This is rural Texas. Many of those kids learn to handle a gun at very early ages and no doubt, many of the teens probably shoot better than the teachers. Here in Texas, guns are part of life. Texans take gun ownership seriously and with great responsibility. Alisyn Camerota gets paid a lot of money. Too bad it's for her blonde hair and not any brain power.
I know the gun grabbers would love nothing better than to file a lawsuit today to stop this sensible and long over due decision, but thankfully, back in 1995, the U.S. Supreme Court actually made a constitutional ruling:
U.S. v. Lopez, 115 S.Ct. 1624 (1995) Chief Justice Rehnquist delivered the opinion of the Court.
"In the Gun Free School Zones Act of 1990, Congress made it a federal offense "for any individual knowingly to possess a firearm at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a school zone." 18 U.S.C. § 922(q)(1)(A) (1988 ed., Supp. V). The Act neither regulates a commercial activity nor contains a requirement that the possession be connected in any way to interstate commerce. We hold that the Act exceeds the authority of Congress "[to] regulate Commerce . . . among the several States . . . ." U. S. Const., Art. I, §8, cl. 3."
Let me quote from a book titled, Time Bomb:
"In 1928 the communists initiated their drive toward world domination when they adopted the "Program of the Communist International" to impose the Soviet way of life on Americans and the rest of the world. These master mind-subverters have always proceeded from the premise that the eradication of Christian moral principles, the inculcation of Communist morality, and the formation of the New Communist Man are the most crucial tasks of Communist construction. Their chief aim then has been the reconstruction of humanity - the reshaping of men's thoughts and beliefs on a mass scale - and their universal instruments of reeducation have been the mixture of utopian Communist community buildings, community values (Communist morality), Communist mass terror."
The reshaping of the American people, how they think and believe, according to The Program, has been in full forward mode for decades. Prior to the all out assault on our right to own and bear arms, young boys in this country up to the late 1960s, used to openly carry their rifles to school, check them with the principle and then pick them up after school for shooting competitions. Of course, back then there was a stay at home mother and a father who came home after work. Families ate dinner together and faced life together. Parents who taught their sons and daughters all about guns from an early age so they would learn to respect them and use them only in self-defense or for hunting.
It was as natural as sunshine - that is until the push began to severely restrict our right to own and bear arms by sissies who serve in Congress and the state legislatures. This well thought out propaganda program ("reeducation") was to emasculate men (make them more "sensitive") while brainwashing them into believing that guns are the root of all evil instead of the teeth of liberty. These panty waste politicians are urged on by new world order soldiers like Carolyn McCarthy, Diane Feinstein and Hillary Clinton, who promote the same old worn out lies about guns and gun violence. Besides politicians, print publications that cater to women are also in on the "reeducation" programs. In an April 5, 2004 column, Paige McKenzie wrote:
"Throughout the 1990s, women's magazine became focused less on fashion and more on features about violence against women and children, even though crime statistics were plummeting across the country....Research studies of women's magazines such as Cosmo, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Glamour, Marie Claire, Redbook, Vogue, Woman’s Day and Ladies Home Journal show that during that decade stories and cover lines that touched on social issues and victimization skyrocketed.
“In almost all of the stories, the message was the same: We have a big problem. It's scary and could affect any woman or her children. … we need government action, and we need it now! And then, of course, there's the “mother network of all victim television”: Lifetime Television Network for Women, a forerunner of "Sex and the City," whose programs tell women that “all men are unfaithful rats, abusive monsters, dishonest scumbags, or all of the above.” Women, however, are “ubervictims.”
These would be Marxist Hillary Clinton's base support: Leeching, whining, dependent females who want mother government to provide for their every need in life ("women's issues") and who care nothing for the supreme law of the land, the U.S. Constitution. The shift went from women being the center and strength of the family, not afraid to defend her own, to victim hood where the shrill cry for mother government to protect them - especially from law abiding gun owners - has risen ad nauseum.
Women, guns, history
Sue Munday, alias, Lieutenant Flowers, wore the Confederate uniform, operating principally in Kentucky during the Civil War. Bridget Divers served throughout the same war with the 1st Michigan Cavalry. When the settlers came West, women wore guns to protect themselves and they weren't afraid of using one against a man who would take their body or threaten their children. Throughout the history of this Republic, our citizenry has always been an armed society and for good reason:
"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, Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress, Initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights.
The police don't have to protect you
Gun control makes victims of women. For those women who think that just because they call 9-11 when a couple of big bruisers break into their home - if they even have the time or opportunity to get to the phone - that the police are obligated to run right over and save their bacon are wrong. Dead wrong. The courts have repeatedly ruled that law enforcement do not have a duty to protect you or your property. Those three to five minutes it takes a squad car (if that quick) to get to your home or apartment can very well mean the difference between life and death. If the two legged predators out there got the message that women have guns in their homes and will use them, guess whose home they're going to skip on rape night out with the boys?
Not to mention the fact that ownership of a gun is REQUIRED under the Second Amendment. This is a fact the gun grabbers and sissy men in this country continue to deliberately ignore. Many times I have written about the absolute necessity of reconstituting the organized militia under the states, citing the brilliant work of Dr. Edwin Vieira. Those teachers here in Texas have taken an important first step, but every supporter of the Second Amendment must understand that our very survival depends on getting the first state to implement Edwin's carefully crafted plan of action. When there is societal breakdown, i.e., result of a massive financial collapse, local law enforcement will not be able to handle the situation - just like they couldn't during Katrina.
If you think I'm just blowing smoke, you're wrong. The powers that be don't want you to know these facts, they want the masses to buckle under to martial law on the whim of a sitting president "for their own good." This is the reason for conditioning the American people beginning back in 1997, Sacramento Bee: "Our Civilian-Military Face-Off : Bill of Rights No Obstacle for the [Marine] Corps." This piece exposed the mindset way back then that at some point due to: "...the rising potential for civil disobedience within the inner cities it is 'inevitable' the U.S. military will be employed more often within American borders."
The elites who rule this country know the American people have caught onto their plans for destroying this constitutional republic. There is no way to stop this financial disintegration no matter how many oceans of money are thrown onto the fire, and as I've said before, hungry bellies make for angry mobs. As well as recent armed stand off incidents when the Sheriff came to remove owners from their foreclosed home. All of these factors are why we have seen the paramilitiarization of local law enforcement over the past dozen years and military exercises being conducted in urban areas. This melt down has been underway a long time and is now out of control. The beast is devouring itself (see link 4 below).
What we're seeing right now is the lull before the tsunami as the ruling elite try to hold things together before the pretend elections in November. But, you just wait until the first quarter of next year. If Americans think the No Change duo of McCain and Obama can "fix" things, they will be the next wave of beggars. The destroyers have brought horrible pain to millions of people with the banking crisis (which Edwin Vieira has warned about for over thirty years and which has now come to pass) with the worst yet to come. Gold is being beaten down and the market manipulated. It's a crime underway in full view of the American people who simply have no understanding of what's happening to them.
As I have urged for years, diversify some of your assets into gold and don't wait until it's too late because too late is fast approaching. I've warned over the years (September 28, 2004, October 10, 2005, July 10, 2006, August 13, 2007, October 4, 2007, January 31, 2008, June 19, 2008) CON-gress would do nothing to stop the meltdown, just as both parties have allowed the energy crisis to build to where we are today. We all like to deal with people we trust, so I do recommend two individuals from El Dorado Gold: Harvey (Phoenix area) 602.228.8203 and Eric in the Florida area, 623.643.8785. Right now is the time to acquire some to protect what you have left.
We have to get one state to make the first move in reconstituting the organized militia of the states, but it won't happen unless YOU go after your state legislators now and stay in their face. If they are voted out in November, go after the new ones the day the new sessions open in January, 2009. Read Dr. Vieira's scholarly columns on the banking crisis and why the organized militias of the States MUST be reconstituted; see here. I've also put some of Edwin's material on audio. You can listen on the Internet, download to your IPod or a CD and listen while you drive at no cost. Just go to my web site (www.devvy.com) and click on the audio section.
I also can't highly recommend enough that you get Edwin's book, Constitutional Homeland Security: A Call for Americans to Revitalize the Militia of the Several States, Volume I, The Nation in Arms. Read it and act together with your gun group. Put the pressure on - especially in states like Montana, Idaho, Nevada and Virginia. Give a copy of Edwin's book to Second Amendment leaders in your state. Tell them this is critical to the survival of this country and a free people. It cannot be ignored because it's not politically correct.
Freedom is for the brave hearts.
