The militarization of local police forces, Posse Comitatus, and other thoughts :: 11/12/2013
We do not see the need for martial law, not even SIMULATED martial law. There are dark forces at work, and Obama has said he wants a civil security force. For what? We think he wants it so he can do an end run around the Posse Comitatus laws.
These are the United States of America, NOT Britain... :: 11/12/2013
...or Australia, or Joe Stalin's Russia, or Hitler's Germany. This proposal is yet another that clearly shows that some of our elected officials are ready to toss the Constitution into the dustbin of history. Can you say "recall vote?" Read this article and think 2nd Amendment, 4th Amendment, 5th Amendment. Warrantless entry into our homes for capricious reasons that clearly violate the Constitution shall not be tolerated.
In Mexico, its illegal to defend yourself, but... :: 11/09/2013
There comes a time when men, yearning to be free from oppression and tyrants, will take up arms to defend themselves. In this case, the Mexican Government realizes how thin the ranks of honest Federales and local police actually is and they are encouraging these locals to take up arms. When will our Government finally ask that the Armed Citizen strike back against those who will never obey the law.
Six time felon walks the streets. Lawful gun owner gets expelled from college. Welcome to Kalifornia. :: 11/09/2013
Whenever we read articles like this one, our blood boils. What ever happened to common sense? Perhaps the Spanish philosopher was correct when he said "el sentido comun es el sentido menos comun" (Common sense is the least common of the senses) You read the article and then ask yourself what you would do if that was your son or daughter who used a firearm to protect himself, and didn't even have to fire a shot, and then was treated more harshly than a 6 time loser. Hmmm, we thought Kalifornia had a 3 strikes law?
Gun Control = Racism in its ugliest form. :: 11/08/2013
Watch the video, and recall how many times we have said that gun control is racism in its ugliest form.
President John F. Kennedy's warning: "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable. :: 11/08/2013
We do not espouse a coup d'état, or any other violent overthrow of the United States Government, but John F. Kennedy's warning to would be tyrants and dictators is as true today as the day he said it.
Voters Please Read. :: 11/08/2013
We voted in this 2013 General Election, and by luck, got Vic Stabile on the Superior Court. On the other hand, Mullen is still Sherrif. I took a look at the election results for School Director in Bethel Park, where 6 folks (including me) were chasing 4 open seats. The ballot results were precisely in accordance with ballot placement. Either that was completely coincidental, or voters looked at the machine, read the part that said vote for 4, and punched up the first 4 names.
Are we over-reacting to Fundamentalist Islamic threats? :: 11/07/2013
Quite frankly, we don't think so. Every recent act of terrorism in the United States, save for Oklahoma City and McVey,has been committed by Fundamentalist Islamists, who likely should have been caught before they acted. Homeland Security says they've stopped dozens of attacks. That proves the point we're making.
Good Guy or Vigilante? It all depends. :: 11/07/2013
One of our regular contributors says to use this when some knucklehead starts talking about Castle Doctrine and Stand Your Ground. We don't think that putting yourself in harm's way, except to prevent a rape or a violent beating, is very smart. YOU read the article, and ask how lucky this guy was that the DA decided not to pursue use of lethal force. We think the citizen, had he been in Allegheny County, Westmoreland County, or Philadelphia, would likely be in jail on serious charges. "Don't try this at home" is, we think, pretty good advice for those of us who live in less than gun friendly territory.
Beware of stupid people in large numbers. :: 11/06/2013
We don't think that posting your License to Carry Firearms on Facebook is especially bright, but our Vet did. The response from the school absolutely confirms what Dad said many times---"Beware of stupid people in large numbers." Unfortunately, the response from educators, the American Federation of Teachers, and other ill informed folks pretty much guaranteed our intrepid Army Vet some very poor treatment. Afraid of her because she was in the Army and has a License to Carry? That's really stupid.
Obama tests the SEALS :: 11/04/2013
Nobody ever called on the United States Armed Forces to give back so much as has this administration. Watch the video, and learn from it. Removing the Navy Jack from the SEAL uniform is in itself outrageous, but you must consider what's behind the logic. Stalin had nothing on Obama.
We're not Patriots, we're terrorists. Don't believe it? It must be true 'cause NBC says so. :: 11/03/2013
The nutcase at LAX sent a suicidal note via social media. NBC chooses to start their coverage by labeling us as terrorists.
Borghetti is the endorsed candidate for Westmoreland County DA :: 11/02/2013
Only you who live in Westmoreland County can bring about a sea change in the attitude of the DA's office regarding protecting yourself from harm. Please read FOAC's official position, and vote for Peter Borghetti
Florida Sherriff Nick Finch acquitted, re-instated. :: 11/02/2013
The JURY, not the judge, saw through Finch's arrest on trumped up charges.
Molon Labe-San Francisco magazine ban. :: 10/31/2013
The Mayor hasn't signed this yet, but likely will. Kalifornia has no pre-emption, so moonbats can pass all the feel good legislation they want. We are just sooo sure that criminals are going to line up around the block to turn in magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds. Its time for California gun owners to take a stand. The next thing you know some character will pass a Lost or Stolen ordinance here in Pennsylvania, sort of a "in your face" move against Pennsylvania's Title 18 Preemption Statute. Yes, we know that's already happened, we just couldn't help but turn on the sarcasm button. And with the Lost or Stolen laws in Pennsylvania, how many successful prosecutions? Here's a hint--close your eyes and tell us what you see.
3 out of 4 polled by Gallup do NOT want a handgun ban. :: 10/30/2013
We've had a chance to talk with CeaseFirePA, and they challenge any statistical information that they don't agree with as "cherry picking". We didn't make this up. Read the article and see how the number of Americans who oppose a handgun ban has risen dramatically over time. Last time we checked, Gallup was still fairly respectable.
"Stand your Ground" laws under attack again. :: 10/30/2013
We're not certain why the race card is being played here. We don't think the color of your skin should diminish your right to defend yourself. Trayvon Martin's mother as a "witness" in front of the Senate? We haven't seen any of her works published, or any empirical evidence she has collected that would demand that Stand Your Ground laws be scrapped. We don't think we will either. http://www.myconsolidated.net/news/read/category/Top%20News/article/ap-trayvons_mom_to_testify_on_standyourgrou-ap Please read the article, and form your own opinions. We think that the current Administration wants to abolish Stand Your Ground to make an argument for disarmament. Ask you congress-critter to scrap this plan before it even takes the form of a bill or resolution.
Are YOU one of 72 different types classified as Possible Domestic Terrorists? :: 10/28/2013
Interesting read. We're not ready to pack our bags for a FEMA camp just yet, but Obama is starting to sound more and more like Stalin. "Those who fail to read history are doomed to repeat it." Just look at what Obama is doing to the military.
Brady Groups twist CDC stats to their own liking. :: 10/28/2013
We think that's a nice way of saying "they lie".
Oregon School is no longer defenseless :: 10/28/2013
This is a good read, but note how our children are being brainwashed. One student says if a teacher shot someone in front of her, it would be bad. No kidding? Watching someone go down from a gunshot wound is unpleasant. What is really unpleasant is getting your own brains blown out because that same teacher could not defend you. What are we teaching our children???
