Conoy Township has a message for criminals who might be thinking about preying on its residents: This is not a gun-free zone.
And that’s exactly what visitors will see once all the signs are securely in place along every road leading into the township. …
Stephen Mohr, a Conoy Township supervisor and lifetime member of the National Rifle Association, said the signs cost about $500 for all 16.
Mohr said the feedback so far has been positive.
“You have to realize that to most people in this township God, guns, family and friends are the four most important things,” he said.
For their own safety, Pennsylvania criminals are encouraged to remain in the Democrat zones of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
Tenth Amendment Center
Two bills filed in the Mississippi House and Senate would make it an express duty of the state government to protect the gun rights of Mississippians against federal gun control measures.
House Bill 1297 (HB1297) was filed by Rep. Staples last week. It declares “All federal acts, laws, orders, rules or regulations regarding firearms are a violation of the Second Amendment.”
In other words, as the Founders understood, the federal government has no authority over firearms, period.
The bill goes on to declare that all such federal acts are “invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, are specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.”
It continues with a requirement to stop federal gun control in the state:
The USA has, by far, the highest per capita gun ownership in the world. Progressives will tell you that this is what makes America the Murder Capitol of Planet Earth. But we’re not, and in this devastatingly effective Firewall, Bill Whittle shows why the center of Gun Nut Nation is in fact one of the safest places in the world.
You can’t blame Muslims for thinking America is ripe for conquest, when you consider what we have in the White House. But Obama won’t be around forever. Despite moonbattery having reached epidemic proportions, American endures. When Muslims staged a “Stand With the Prophet” event in Garland, Texas over the weekend, they discovered that not all of us are Charlie Hebdo; some of us are ready to shoot back.
The event featured Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and no doubt a likely candidate for Obama’s next Director of Homeland Security. The purpose of the conference was to use political correctness to bludgeon the resistance to the spreading cancer of Islam. But the 2,000 or more anti-jihad protesters who turned up didn’t seem all that worried about being denounced as “Islamophobes.”
Enraged that the conference was essentially hosted by the Garland Independent School District, patriots converged from throughout the region in an encouraging show of resistance. Many arrived on two wheels, called to action by 2 Million Bikers to DC.
Compliments of Bunker, here’s what the jihad is up against when it ventures outside of friendly territory like NYC and Washington and into the Heartland:
Some advice for expansionist Muslims: when in Texas, remember the Alamo.
Islamists might also want to tread lightly in Louisiana, which sent a contingent to Garland:
Paris and another mass murder in a gun-free zone. Another incident where well-armed criminals shot at people who could only scream and watch their colleagues gunned down without mercy.
Wonder if anyone in that Paris building wished he or she had a gun to shoot back. I’m not saying that a couple of concealed weapons would have stopped well-armed terrorists, but it could have bought a little time before the police got there.
I know that many Europeans call this “a cowboy crossfire.” Tell that to the families of the dead – all dead because guys with guns shot innocent unarmed people working in their office.
Like other countries, France has very restrictive gun laws, as David Crodea reported:
17,500 protesters gathered in Dresden, Germany to sing Christmas Carols and protest against the Islamization of Europe.
The political elite and leftist media are worried that an anti-foreigner sentiment might be rising in Germany.
The movement has grown from a few hundred to several thousand protesters.
The protesters waved German flags and sang Christmas carols.
The German PEGIDA movement held its largest meeting yet last night to protest what they call the ‘Islamisation of the Western World’, despite stiff opposition from all sections of Germany’s elite including politicians, media, and the arts.
PEGIDA (Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West) has grown rapidly since its inception in October, a peaceful ‘strolling’ movement opposing the exceptional violence seen in street battles between Salafist Muslims and ethnic Kurds seen in many German cities this year and enormous immigration. Now on it’s tenth ‘evening stroll’, it has grown from a couple of hundred people, to 15,000 last week, to more than 17,500 last night.
In addition to the hundreds of banners with slogans such as ‘Against Hatred, Violence, and the Quran’, ‘Against Religious Fanaticism’, and ‘No Sharia in Europe’, the thousands attending brought song sheets which had been distributed online and sang favourite Christmas carols.
There is only one reason to be a defender of the Second Amendment, the same reason the Framers had when they wrote it: fear of an overbearing government. As Thomas Jefferson said, “The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
Of course, those opposed to gun ownership will respond that there is no tyranny in government. The answer to that is governments all over the world within the last 100 years have killed more than 262 million of their own citizens. See R.J. Rummel, Death By Government (Transaction, 1997).
Most Americans are unaware of this sinister aspect of modern history, which Rummel calls “Democide,” and when they find out, a common response is denial, then after ten minutes on the internet, amazement. Many such innocents then insist that it can’t happen here. The simple answer to the can’t-happen-here idea is that anything can happen anywhere, and it’s not as if this slaughter was centuries removed from us or limited to a single country.
Many on the left will dismiss the need to protect against overreaching government merely because they believe the more power the government has, the better, for it has been their experience that only big government is likely to deliver what they cannot get otherwise. They do not believe big government capable of oppression. Such people will never recognize the validity of gun-rights arguments.
