Hands Off My Gun

Moonbattery

Dana Loesch sounds off on her promising new book, explaining why it had to be an AR-15 on the cover, why she is so passionate about her God-given right of self-defense, and why authoritarian moonbats would be wise not to mess with her:

This US Marine’s Yard Sign Is Perfect

Conservative Tribune

We’ve all seen signs, bumper stickers, and billboards that caused us to stop and think, smile, or shake our heads in wonder.

Seeing this sign would evoke a bit of a different reaction — respect, perhaps, mingled with a little healthy fear.

It was apparently posted by a US Marine in lieu of a more generic “no trespassing” sign. We think it’s probably more effective, but you can scroll down to see for yourself. (H/T Young Conservatives)

We like this sign because it contains so many constitutional reminders in such a quick read.

Obviously, the sign itself is an expression of free speech, as protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution. It also carries a clear message about the Marine’s position on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

There’s even an implication here for the Fourth Amendment prohibition against illegal search and seizure that we respect.

In fact, it reminds us a little of another sign containing multiple messages, coincidentally also brought to our attention by a US Marine.

Apparently, these guys have a thing for awesome signs.

Anyway, here it is. Let us know if you think it’s as cool as we do.

Marine Sign

The best remedy for a bad guy with a gun, the saying goes, is a good guy with a gun.

Seems much more effective than one of those lame “violators will be prosecuted” signs, doesn’t it?

At any rate, we agree: We have now been properly negotiated with.

No to ‘Jeb Bush for President’

American Thinker

I like Jeb Bush; I like his brother, George.  At a personal level – not a political level – they live the sorts of lives that conservatives should want us all to live.  Mitt Romney also has lived an honorable and decent life, with hard work and love of family as vital elements of his character.

While George H. Bush, John McCain, and Bob Dole are much less likeable, I cannot, as a conservative or a patriot, dismiss out of hand their courage against evil nations in combat or their noble tenacity in combat or after combat injuries.  But these three, like George W. Bush, Mitt Romney – and Jeb Bush – will not produce the radical, but legal, conservative revolution that our nation needs.

This is the Most Conservative Restaurant in America… And Here’s Why

Conservative Tribune

Shooters Grill, a restaurant located in the aptly named town of Rifle, Colorado is being hailed as the most conservative restaurant in the country thanks to a photograph of a sign they have posted on their front door, which is now making its way around the Internet.

The reason Shooters Grill has a warm spot in the hearts of conservatives all across the country is due to it’s outspoken support of the Second Amendment, which is evidenced by the fact that patrons are served by waitresses who just happen to be packing a loaded Ruger .357 Blackhawk strapped to their legs.

Lauren Boebert, the owner of Shooters, posted a sign on the front door of the restaurant saying, “Guns are welcome on premises. Please keep all weapons holstered, unless the needs arises. In such cases, judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”

According to Young Conservatives, Boebert considers herself to be a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and wants to encourage other gun rights activists with the atmosphere her establishment provides.

“We encourage it, and the customers love that they can come here and express their rights. This country was founded on our freedom. People can come in carrying their gun, and they can pray over their food,” Boebert said.

Awesome. In a day and age when every liberal in the country is fighting hard to erase the Second Amendment, it’s encouraging to see patriotic Americans standing boldly for the right to own a gun, and showing their support for the cause in such a creative way!

America could use more restaurants and businesses like Shooters!

College Student Forced To Remove American Flag From Balcony Because ‘Foreign People Could Find It Offensive’

Via Breitbart:

A San Diego State University sophomore was forced to remove an American flag from his balcony after apartment managers said foreigners could find the display offensive.

Brad Smith, who had just moved into the Boulevard 63 apartment complex in San Diego last month, told ABC 10 News that he received a written notice to remove the flag a few days ago.

“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said. “I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag.”

While Smith’s lease agreement with the apartment’s management does have a clause that says “no signs or other personal property may be kept outside the premises,” attorney Christian Curry told ABC. that the clause comes close to infringing on First Amendment rights.

“Clearly, they want to keep it clean and that’s something they want to accomplish,” Curry said. “It’s a compelling reason, but it’s hardly a reason that’s going to overcome your free speech.”

Management initially told ABC that anyone who hangs a flag would be asked to take it down; however, it looks like the management capitulated after the media highlighted the story. An associate of the owners of the apartment complex told ABC there was a “misunderstanding,” and that the flag would be allowed to fly.

Resident DEFIES Orders to Stop Flying the American Flag… Awesome

In Obama’s America, flying the Stars and Stripes is an inappropriate display of affection for one’s country.

According to liberal thought, all who hail from the greatest nation on earth should hang their head in shame for all of the “evil” perpetrated by America and as a result should apologize profusely to anyone from a foreign country, just like our wonderful Commander-in-Chief who made his “apology tour” early on in his term.

Unfortunately for progressives, that’s not how it works here, regardless of how many attempts they make at forcing people to take down their flags, which is something that seems to be common place as of late.

Take for example an Islamic landlord in Texas who tried to force her tenant to take down his flag, saying it was a “threat to Muslims.”

According to Mad World News, a similar situation has popped up in Ohio, as 86-year-old Julia Lease received a note from her landlord asking her to take her flag down from her front porch.

“Please remove flag from your front porch. Thank you!”
