    Isn't it amazing how many people feel vulnerable due to restrictive gun laws and support their "RIGHT" to ownership and the ability to defend themselves when/IF necessary. Yet they ALLOW the Un-Constitutional Socialist Agenda of "Disarming the General Public" to continue as proposed by the RADICAL Left and the Democrats!!!! It IS the Government and NOT general population behind these attacks on our personal safety and violations of our Rights. WAKE-UP AMERICA, Your Personal Safety is on the Line here. Personally, I would RATHER have every one of MY neighbors armed to the teeth and Packin' heat. Why? Because these are the Law-Abiding Citizens and it makes sleeping a lot easier.

    Very good except for the 2 idiots at the end that compare U.S. crime with "other develped nations." That is soooo bogus. What they need to do is compare the U.S. with other nations of the same type of government. Why not compare us to a likewise free nation? Because there aren't any like us, that's why. Oh sure, China may be a sfae place to live but they are also very oppressed. I am sooooo sick of this type of comparison. It's just BS.

    I heard this story replayed today on the ABC Radio weekend show "Perspectives". I like Tom Palmer's quote:

    "If someone gets into your house, which would you rather have, a handgun or a telephone? You can call the police if you want, and they'll get there, and they'll take a picture of your dead body."

    on numerous occasions i've actually been told by some of people i used to know that they prefer the latter. go figure, i guess it's just plain Darwinism.

    It's a shock to me that anyone in the mainstream media would actually support owning guns, but I like it.

    +1 Wagon Wheel. There are 16 houses on my street, I know all the people except the last one who isn't finished building yet. The other 15, including mine, are armed. They are all good, law abiding citizens. Give me South GA over NYC or DC any day. We may be viewed as rednecks.......so what?

    whompuss:

    The nearest house to mine is @100 yds or so through the woods, far to close for my taste but I can't change that. He's armed. Can't say the same for the newest folks in the new sub-division that went up to the east on the other side of the creek bottom. It's a mixture to the south on the other side of the creek/swamp. I'm sure they know this side is armed though. For good or bad, as misunderstood as the label is, Redneck has more than one meaning. I can't say I EVER met an unarmed, anti-gun Redneck!!!

    Wagon Wheel,
    My second marriage was to a city girl. She said there were never any firearms in their house. She and two young teen daughters viewed me as sort of a nut UNTIL: late one night we were headed home from Atlanta. After we turned onto I-16 at Macon we hit a dead zone for cell service. The serpentine belt on my Jeel broke and there went the water pump. Immediate overheat. White hanky on the antenna, nobody would stop. Kept trying 911, no success. Finally a drunk stopped and backed up to the Jeep. His license plate was turned down- you figure his motives. He pulled a chain out and started to attach it to the front frame horn, saying he was going to pull us to the next exit which at the time had no service station. When my Glock 17 became visible he said "reckon you don't need any help after all" got his chain and took off. After an hour a trooper finally came along and called a wrecker.
    My wife and girls all have handguns now, they tell their friends that they never have a problem losing a signal,
    Speaking of girls, I just posted a help for advice on the youngest girl, now 25, living in VA with her handgun, but working in DC = no gun allowed. Any advise would be appreciated. She feels safe in VA but afraid to risk felony by carrying weapon in her car in DC.
    Thanks,
    Whompuss.

    The sad thing is one of the intentions of having firearms is to be able to take back the government if it gets out of control. Now all we have is handguns and rifles while the military have sophisticated killing machines. Governments kill more people than civilians do yet government is to be trusted with such weapons. Now that Bush declares himself dictator if another false flag 911 event should happen, we are done for not to mention his agreement with Canada and Mexico to send in troops to quell any uprising/protest in the USA. National guards should never be federalized or go overseas. It should stay in defense of the state and its people. Now the states and the people serve the federal government instead of the other way around. Illegals pouring over the border and amnesty for 30-36 million people and 11 members of their family from back home to get amnesty. Boy have we dropped the ball on that one.

    Dear Sarawat: we all love a good laugh. Go ahead and tell us what you meant by "Now that Bush declares himself dictator if another false flag 911 event should happen..." I'm ready to hear you expound on that one.

    I believe sariwat may be referring to the "National Continuity Policy" that President Bush issued last month:

    http://www.whitehouse.gov/news/releases/2007/05/20070509-12.html

    This directive is mostly classified, but allows the president to take over all levels of government (federal, state, local, and tribal) and even private entities that he/she deems useful during a catastrophic disaster. In such a scenario, the president would effectively have dictatorial power.

    There was a fellow on Michael Savage last week that discussed a supposed component of this policy that has to do with the construction of concentration camps within the United States during such a catastrophe.
