This “humor” was in my INBOX this morning:

1. If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you live in a country run by idiots.
2. If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you live in a country run by idiots.
3. If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government, you live in a country run by idiots.
4. If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives 20 F-16 fighter jets to the crazy leaders in Egypt, you live in a country run by idiots.
5. If, in the largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you live in a country run by idiots.
6. If an 80-year-old woman can be stripped searched by the TSA but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you live in a country run by idiots.
7. If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you live in a country run by idiots.
8. If a seven year old boy can be thrown out of grade school for saying his teacher’s “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable, you live in a country run by idiots.
9. If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing and free cell phones, you live in a country run by idiots.
10. If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to incentivize NOT working, with 99 weeks of unemployment checks and no requirement to prove they applied but can’t find work, you live in a country run by idiots.
11. If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more “safe” according to the government, you live in a country run by idiots.

There has been another tragic shooting, and innocent lives have been lost or forever scarred. The gunman has taken one life, and is himself dead. The high school in Oregon, which has a student population of nearly 2800, had one more day of classes before the summer recess.

It is without question that this is a senseless act.

But it is also one that the gun control advocates will once again seize upon.

GUN CONTROL is not the answer. Not until we address the mental health issues plaguing this country. Not until we address the desensitization of our youths to violence through movies, video games, and music. If we are to have an honest debate about these violent acts, we must do so in an honest manner. The NRA is NOT to blame. GUNS are not to blame.

May God comfort the families of the victims today in Oregon, including the family of the gunman.

OCEANSIDE, Calif. – The owner of an Oceanside store that sells various gun parts  to build a rifle from scratch refused to turn over his customer list to federal  agents.

 

Dimitrios Karras, owner of Ares Armor, said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco,  Firearms and Explosives agents were investigating their business, not for what  they sell, but for the people who purchase their products.

80 percent lower receiverKarras said the ATF threatened to shutter their  business if they didn’t hand over the names of 5,000 customers who have  purchased an 80 percent lower receiver (the base) for building an AR-15.

It is legal to build a rifle from scratch without serial numbers only if the  base is manufactured to ATF specifications.  The base is not considered a  firearm if it’s sold separately.

OBAMACARE PROVISION: “FORCED” HOME INSPECTIONS http://benswann.com/ ^ | August 13, 2013 | Joshua Cook

Posted on Wednesday, August 14, 2013 6:18:00 PM by Whenifhow

“Clearly, any family may be visited by federally paid agents for almost any reason.”

According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted.

The Health and Human Services’ website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the “high-risk” categories below:

Families where mom is not yet 21. Families where someone is a tobacco user. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States.

There is no reference to Medicaid being the determinant for a family to be “eligible.”

In 2011, the HHS announced $224 million will be given to support evidence-based home visiting programs to “help parents and children.” Individuals from the state will implement these leveraging strategies to “enhance program sustainability.”

Constitutional attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown states,

“This is not a “voluntary” program. The eligible entity receiving the grant for performing the home visits is to identify the individuals to be visited and intervene so as to meet the improvement benchmarks. A homeschooling family, for instance, may be subject to “intervention” in “school readiness” and “social-emotional developmental indicators.” A farm family may be subject to “intervention” in order to “prevent child injuries.” The sky is the limit.

Although the Obama administration would claim the provision applies only to Medicaid families, the new statute, by its own definition, has no such limitation. Intervention may be with any family for any reason. It may also result in the child or children being required to go to certain schools or taking certain medications and vaccines and even having more limited – or no – interaction with parents. The federal government will now set the standards for raising children and will enforce them by home visits.”

Part of the program will require massive data collecting of private information including all sources of income and the amount gathered from each source.

A manual called Child Neglect: A Guide for Prevention, Assessment, and Intervention includes firearms as potential safety hazard and will require inspectors to verify safety compliance and record each inspection into a database.

Last session South Carolina Rep. Bill Chumley introduced a bill, H.3101 that would nullify certain provisions of Obamacare. The bill would give the state attorney general the authority to authorize law enforcement to arrest federal agents for trespassing. It would make forced home inspections under Obamacare illegal in South Carolina. It passed in the House but died in the senate.

Kent Brown and Rep. Rick Quinn discuss “forced” home inspections under Obamacare in the video below.

“I don’t know why any individual should have a right to have a revolver in his house,” Nixon said in a taped conversation with aides. “The kids usually kill themselves with it and so forth.” He asked why “can’t we go after handguns, period?”

ANGER MANAGEMENT COURSE TO BUY AMMO… REALLY!!

A Florida legislator wants anyone trying to buy ammunition to complete an  anger management program first, in what critics say is the latest example of  local lawmakers reaching for constitutionally-dubious solutions to the problem  of gun violence.

The bill filed Saturday by state Sen. Audrey Gibson, D-Jacksonville, would  require a three-day waiting period for the sale of any firearm and the sale of  ammunition to anyone who has not completed anger management courses. The  proposal would require ammo buyers to take the anger management courses every 10  years.

“This is not about guns,” Gibson said. “This is about ammunition and not only  for the safety of the general community, but also for the safety of law  enforcement.”

Gibson said she’s concerned with citizens stockpiling ammunition, potentially  creating dangerous situations should those individuals ever come in contact with  law enforcement agencies or criminals.

“It’s about getting people to think, really, about how much ammunition they  need,” Gibson said. “It’s a step, I think, in a safer direction. It’s about  getting people to think before they buy.”

Wow…talk about back door maneuvers.
“InterMedia employees believe that Hindery, a Huffington Post blogger who has contributed to numerous Democratic politicians including Andrew Cuomo and Elizabeth Warren, is in the process of consolidating all of America’s leading gun-culture media outlets and stripping them down to virtual destruction.”

A bet this is one fantastic Teacher!!

Yet another student has been suspended for having something that represents a  gun, but isn’t actually anything like a real gun.

This time, Daniel McClaine, Jr., a freshman at Poston Butte High School in  Tan Valley, Arizona, made the mistake of setting a picture of a gun as the  desktop background on his school-issued computer.

The picture shows an AK-47 lying on a flag, reports KNXV-TV. The gun isn’t his, McClaine  assured the ABC affiliate in Phoenix. He found it on the Internet and liked it,  partly because he is interested in serving in the military after graduation.
