Ron Paul -
Ron Paul describing our 2nd amendment rights.
And please watch this great clip of Ted Nugent going off on Piers Morgan on CNN. Ted wasn't going to have ANY of his nonsense and misinformation. There's no way you can watch this without laughing. Classic Ted at his best...dealing with a liberal anti-gunner. CNN has diabled embedding so I had to put this up as an external link. Click here to view on YouTube. ENJOY!
A story was recently posted on Facebook that grabbed my attention, about a Senator that supposedly shot an intruder. That wasn't the story though. It was the fact that he was anti-gun...and used a gun to defend himself. A hypocrite? Well, people quickly jumped on the thread and started hammering this guy as such. So, I did a little digging and found that the story that Smart Girl Politics had posted on their website was, in a nutshell, false. While it's important to defend our gun rights, it's also important to shoot down any misinformation that others may spread, regardless if it was intentional, or by accidental oversight. Fact is is that this Senator had been rated B+ by the NRA, and before he retired it was upgraded to an A rating. The story was posted on Dec. 12, 2010, yet the original story, and incident, happened in August of 2009. I've provided links below for you to view yourself, and, I also forwarded this information to SGP and asked if they would remove the story, or at least update it. Several email addresses were used but I have yet to get a response back. I'd also like to note that the person who posted the story on SGP, Paula Tyler, was recently 'reinstated' to the Tennessee SGP, as described on her profile page in an April 10 entry.

This story also appears on Field & Stream's website with a date of 02/14/11. I sent an email to multiple addresses and have yet to get a reply and the story is still posted.
UPDATE: Still no reply from either website in regards to their posted stories. (07/12/11)
Why the Gun is Civilization - by marko kloos
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either
convincing me via argument, or force me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories,
without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me, because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year old retiree on equal footing with a 19-year old gangbanger, and a single gay guy on equal footing with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more civilized if all guns were removed from society, because a firearm makes it easier for a mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat–it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weightlifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation…and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

Highly Recommended Videos to Watch
Video is an important tool today. And if presented correctly it can make a far greater impact on the message one's trying to convey. Videos can show you proper gun cleaning and maintenance, the right firearm for your hunting or self-defense needs, safety instruction, the latest technology available, someone testing the gun you're considering to buy, or even, sorry to say, improper use of firearms. Yes, sometimes we need to see someone being stupid to appreciate the extra efforts of being safe. No matter what you're looking for...I'm sure there's a video of it!
Defenseless: New Orleans
'Gun Grab' & Violation of Rights
Residents in the U.S. state of Lousiana are fighting for their right to defend themselves. Police confiscated their guns after hurricane Katrina struck five years ago. It was an attempt to keep order amid the looting and violence which followed. But as Priya Sridhar has been finding out, many in the state are still angry over what THEY believe was a violation of the constitution.

This clock, by the NRA's Member's Councils of California, details the death rate of firearm homicide's and compares it against other fatalities. The attack on our Gun Right's will never end and we must all help educate those that fear firearms due to the mainstream media's exhaustive efforts to keep gun ownership in a negative light. With virtually everyone having a camera or cell phone these days, isolated incidents get immediate attention and the public is fed their dose of horror. Disarm America and they enslave the world.
