From An Unapologetic Gun Owner!

In the aftermath of the tragic events at Virginia Tech, the perpetrator of the multiple murders of staff and students hadn’t even been formally identified, when some voices from Europe, and our leftists at home, began calling for more restrictive gun laws. Some of the voices from Europe, and leftists in the U.S., who will remain nameless and linkless, as they are undeserving any recognition, renewed their criticisms of our Second Amendment heritage, and attempt to elevate themselves morally, by criticizing the U.S. for allowing private firearm ownership.
To those people, I say you are fools! You’ve been acculturated in a society where the crown and it’s Army, are responsible for your safety and security. That’s well and good for you who don’t believe in personal responsibility. The United States is the only large nation in history, that has never had a walled city in it’s existence. We don’t run for cover in the castle, so the King and all his men can protect us, or control us.
I will not only not apologize to anyone for being armed, nor will I be disarmed without a fight, I will never willingly walk in and relinquish my arms, because the nanny state told me I had to.
I won’t elaborate on how well armed I am, other than to say I can fight up close with edged and throwing weapons, silently with slingshots and blowguns, as well as reach out in excess of a mile and a half, if needs be. Yet, to date, I have never committed a violent crime, nor have I ever been compelled to. If my guns and other weapons are the source of crime, then why haven’t I gone on a Hollywoodesque murder spree? The answer for me, is the same for the many millions of Americans that lawfully possess firearms, and are not inclined to criminality. We are good people, that believe in the rights God has given us, the rights that our Constituition is designed to protect, and we believe in the right of self defense, and the defense of other citizens in need.
I know there are many who only react to the fear of firearms, and the senseless harm and murder of innocents, and are well intentioned. I too am feeling emotional at this time, but for different reasons. The tragedy at VT captivates the news, as I type, and justly so, as the grief and loss so many are experiencing at this time, is life altering. However, my emotions are directed to those who would see our valued rights undermined due to the emotional reactions of those who oppose our basic freedom, for fear and for political opportunism.
If a tragedy occurs near me, or if I or my neighbors are in danger, I will fill my hands with weapons, and come to the aid of the greater community and my neighbors, as well as myself. I will not wait for law enforcement, unless waiting is a reasonable response. I will only call 911…after! Also, I will not stand idly by, and watch as my community is set ablaze by rampaging young men, who act with impunity, and even attack the firemen and police, while murdering innocent civilians, and burning buses and cars. I will protect my community!

Here are some illuminating quotes, concerning firearm ownership:

Mao Tse Tung
“All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party”

Thomas Jefferson
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”

Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons
“Those now possessing weapons and ammunition are at once to turn them over to the local police authority. Firearms and ammunition found in a Jew’s possession will be forfeited to the government without compensation Whoever willfully or negligently violates the provisions will be punished with imprisonment and a fine”

Sigmund Freud
“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity”

George Washington
“Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people’s liberty teeth keystone… the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable… more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference. When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour.”

Nancy Pelosi
“If I had my way, sporting guns would be strictly regulated, the rest would be confiscated”

  1. Excellent post. I hope there are people just like you within my community.

  2. […] border security, Opinion, Politics, crime, Morality, Uncategorized at 9:02 pm by wytammic I think this is an excellent post. I strongly encourage you to click over there and take the time to […]

  3. Thanks, wytammic.
    There are sheep, wolves, and sheepdog.

  4. Dang!
    Thanx for the vid, nuke. I was there this afternoon, and didn’t see it…you on the ball!
    Oh, good to see your clacking again.
    I hope all went well, and the family had time to share their grief.
    Give your bride a hug for me, she is gonna need many in the months ahead.

  5. It went well. I had to come on back and get some work done. Mrs. Nuke is staying behind for a couple of more days.
    Thanks for the kind words.

  6. Well, she needs that time with her kin. I have traveled the road she is on, right now. It’s tough, for the first time in your life, to wake up and know that your one and only Mom is no longer on this earth.
    She will have many little moments, that I always called gut-shred moments, when she is reminded of her.
    Glad she has you.
    Oh, kept the icky stuff from clogging the filter. Some foul, funky shiite in their, too.

  7. ‘Preshate dat

  8. Sounds like Rosie will need to up her antidepressants.

  9. You know, for somebody that is scared to death of the government going around and sneaky wiring up the world trade center without anybody noticing with huge microwaves to melt the steel, you would think that Rosie would be crouched behind her barricaded mansion with full automatic weapons waiting for Dick Cheney to carry her off to Gitmo.

  10. I have been reading some very hysterical responses in foreign newspapers. Apparently this is the fault of the government for not taking our weapons away. Apparently they do not understand that the government works on behest of the people, not the other way around, and that there is a little thing called the constitution that guarantees our right to arms just to keep the government from getting too frisky. If some government official decided to take it upon him or herself to seize my weapons, well, I took an oath a long time ago that said:

    “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.” (Title 10, US Code; Act of 5 May 1960 replacing the wording first adopted in 1789, with amendment effective 5 October 1962).

    Our first allegiance is always to the constitution.

  11. Perhaps some of the foolish responses you have read, are the same ones I read, which inspired this thread.
    I realize the incident happened during the dinner hour in most of Europe, so they had an evening of news coverage, and a night to reflect on it, before commenting on Tuesday, but with their traditions of the crown or government being in charge, they just cannot understand our Constituition, or what it means to be a free people.
    Further, what they really don’t understand is that government restrictions on our rights, in the form of Gun Free Zones is what actually doomed so many.
    People Don’t Stop Killers, People With Guns Do.

  12. It is a mindset that I cannot fathom. These people honestly believe that somebody else is responsible for their safety and will take care of them and their property despite lots of evidence to the contrary.

    What completely astounds me is that the women are those crying the loudest about gun laws. Hello. If you do not have a way of protecting yourself that does not rely on size and strength to be effective, you become property. And your countries are being invaded by people that keep women as property whose lives can be terminated for any reason for an offense, even imaginary, to a man.

  13. Fear no man, no matter what his size
    Just call on me in time of need, and I will Equalize.

    OldeTyme Colt ad.
    Yeah, and for those loud crying wiminns, they should go read Anti-Mullah’s latest post.
    Gotta go…later.

  14. CBS is such a tool.

  15. I have to go, too. I have cut down on my hours in order to go to restaurants clean the house and go the beach do more concrete work and screw off on the internet improve my (nonexistent)computer skilz.

  16. Why is it that every show I’ve seen commenting on the Supreme Court decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion starts out referring to “a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion”? Say what? Do they just parrot these things that they heard the professors say in their journalism 101 classes?

  17. Now Fox has moved on a psychiatrist saying that the student should have been “treated” because of his disturbing writing. Ya think there’s a crack mental health intervention team on the way to Stephen King’s house?

  18. Because they can say it with full knowledge that R vs W is still intact.
    The Supremes of the time, found it somewhere in the back of the only copy of the Constituition that actually has it.

  19. I just heard he had actually been admitted to a psychiatric hospital in ’05, which means the NCIC instant check and the Virginia police, never entered the info in their data.

  20. Well, your medical records as to your degree of craziness are private.

  21. Then how can they ascertain if a person is ineligible for a firearm purchase with a mental health history, unless it gets reported to the state or NCIC?

  22. Beats me. Breaching patient confidentiality can get you in a lot of trouble. Unless he was setting houses on fire under orders from the planet Zator, I would imagine that he would not be reported.

  23. A judge ordered him into a mental health facility, that makes it a legal matter. That it was a legal matter, means there should have been a red flag on his record with the NCIC, which also means, that somewhere and someway, the system failed.

  24. Did a judge in fact order him into a mental health facility or did he enter voluntarily or was he entered by his parents?

  25. As I said, a judge ordered him there, in ’05.

  26. Ah, police sought a temporary detention order from a magistrate after the stalking incident (probably our equivalent of the Baker act) and Cho was voluntarily but briefly admitted to a psychiatric facility, which means that they couldn’t find sufficient cause to keep him involuntarily. Probably one of those 72 hour deals.

  27. Laws vary by state, of course, as to what is reportable to authorities; however, medical information can only be disclosed with the individual’s permission. A law enforcement agency will be able to get access to a patient’s medical records without permission but must have a court order to do so.

  28. Two principles define the essence of confidentiality between the psychiatrist and patient.

    Patients should be able to choose when their confidential medical records will be released. A psychiatrist may release confidential information only with the authorization of the patient or when compelled by law.

    Once permission is received, psychiatrists may disclose only material that is relevant to the matter at hand.

    While these defining principles are clear, information requests from managed care organizations or health insurance providers may compromise these principles, and questions may arise in a variety of situations. However, only extremely exceptional circumstances can
    cause confidentiality to be waived, such as when a patient threatens the safety of another individual. Some states require the psychiatrist to notify the threatened individual and the police. Almost all states have laws that require psychiatrists and other physicians to report
    to government authorities certain conditions, such as child abuse, abuse of the elderly, or infectious disease.

    But these scenarios represent exceptional cases and are in no sense representative. The ethical, legal, and professional issues involved in treating potentially dangerous patients are among the most difficult ones faced by psychiatrists and are issues for which psychiatrists
    will often seek guidance from professional and legal experts.

    Release of medical information in response to law enforcement requests can be done without patient consent, but federal law should provide patients with due process protections, such as requiring that a court order be obtained before the record is released. This action would by no means be automatic, as the Supreme Court’s Jaffee v. Redmond decision severely restricted the power of the courts to compel disclosure of records to further minimize the aforementioned “mere possibility” that confidential mental health information be disclosed and medically necessary treatment compromised.

  29. While various authorities may not have had access to any information as to whether he was a danger, the school definitely knew.

  30. One of these days, somebody is going to realize that deinstitutionalizing the mentally ill and leaving the taking of their psychiatric meds to their discretion may not be a great idea.

  31. Hunh!
    An explanation, of sorts, for the two hour delay between shootings.

  32. Yeah, I saw Dr. Drew on Fox earlier when the news was breaking, and he guaranteed that it would turn out to be a rambling, semi-incoherent and profane diatribe of hatred against those that “forced him” into it because he was, well, crazy.

  33. Smashed taters.
    He was abused.

  34. We all know there is a lengthy list of people and instituitions that need to apologize to the Duke lacrosse players.
    But will Murtha and the news agencies that parroted his story, apologize to the Marines?

  35. I dunno about the abuse angle; seems like he would go after the abuser instead of a bunch of students.

    Interesting that he would rail against the rich; I haven’t read anything about him working at McDonald’s, and those weapons he bought were not exactly cheap for a po’ boy.

  36. Murtha apologize to the people he accused? I think NOT.

  37. Like nuke always says, prisons are full of abused inmates, forced to eat smashed taters as a child. In his case, Kim Shee. Or maybe he wanted Kim Shee, and got a CFS with smashed taters.

    Maybe he was upset that he only could afford a Glock, and not a Kimber.

    Yeah, the congressman from Pa. is one sorry Murtha!

  38. Mark Levin is good.

    As for the media, the reporting so far has been straight out of a NARAL press release. I would encourage “journalists” to actually read the decision. I know it’s over 70 pages long, so maybe they’ll want someone to read it to them.

  39. Henh…ScrappleFace.

    “Gonazales continues to demonstrate his ignorance of how government works,” said Mr. Schumer. “Since when do Congressional hearings have anything to do with actual crimes or, for that matter, questions that lawmakers need to have answered?”

  40. Hooo, there’s a wind shift tomorrow so it will be less smoky tomorrow; bad news is that the winds are going to really pick up over the weekend. That one fire in Georgia sending smoke my way covers 40 square miles now and is threatening to burn down a town.

    /I will appreciate the wind shift; I’ve been coughing like a 30-pack-year smoker since I came back from the track tonight.

  41. Dang!
    That’s one big a55 fire, and whole bunch of smoke.
    We’re expecting rain Monday through Wednesday.
    Hang on Swamps, relief is on the way.

  42. I fail to see how a “partial birth abortion” could be medically necessary.

  43. #45-For those with difficulty making a decision?

  44. Oh Goodie!
    Cynthia is back with another video fisk.

  45. It’s in the Okefenokee now; the water levels are way down, and the peat is gonna smoulder until the water levels come back up. What is really interesting (to me, anyway) is that Okefenokee is very similar to the environment that existed in the Arctic 45 million years ago.

  46. #46 No, I haven’t been bicycling since my knee injury, but looks like I better take it up again!

  47. Henh-henh-hee!

  48. Awwww, Cynthia is so cute! I’m so pleased to see another video fisk. She’s good.

  49. Did you see SP?
    It’s on again in a few.
    The Night of the Homeless.

  50. Hmmm…hadn’t even considered the ADA.
    The Volokh Conspiracy.

  51. NO! (Must watch now.)

    Here is something that everybody that has health records should think about. We have ways of making you comply.

  52. The Single Worst Editorial Decision In The History Of Broadcast News?

    Other print stories may have harmed the country more –the New York Times’ and Los Angeles Times’ cavalier dismissal of national security in their stories that published national security secrets about our efforts to capture or kill terrorists come to mind.

    But Dan Rather’s and Mary Mapes’ previous high-water mark in broadcast news’ indifference to the public good has been trumped. NBC now stands for Nothing But Contempt for its audience. It was a shameful thing that the network did, and I doubt I will ever willingly watch NBC news again. Will even one “journalist” have the spine to quit?

  53. Dang, I mentioned to SwampMan how I was really surprised that they put those playacting pictures of himself up; I think they should have put up a picture of him up after he blew his head off instead. We agreed that it was just encouraging the next batshit crazy person out there that cannot be locked up for their own good.

  54. The fact that he had all of the stuff ready, had the(wrong) address for NBC, and an entire multi-media presentation ready for mailing, shows he wasn’t bat-shiite crazy, but was certainly a sociopath, seeking publicity.
    And, yep, there are a whole bunch of glory seekers out there, that will look at his exit, and say “cooool!

  55. Night y’all.

  56. Shakespeare said that the way to take over a society is to kill all the lawyers. We can add, “disarming the citizenry” to that.

    Had you been on that Virginia Tech campus, the shooting spree would have ended a lot sooner. Funny how people shoot up gun-free zones and not, say, an NRA convention – and how DC, which has a ban on even OWNING handguns, is one of the most dangerous cities in the country – is it because homicidal maniacs don’t like people who can shoot back?

  57. Heh. Yeah, what Fred Thompson said today: Whenever I’ve seen one of those “Gun-free Zone” signs, especially outside of a school filled with our youngest and most vulnerable citizens, I’ve always wondered exactly who these signs are directed at. Obviously, they don’t mean much to the sort of man who murdered 32 people just a few days ago.

  58. We certainly can’t blame the moon phase for the crazyass behavior that has been going on for the last few days. Wasn’t that diaper-clad (former)lady astronaut down at Houston? Maybe they put moon dust in the water supply.

  59. Or melamine

  60. Melamine in the company cafeteria is a good idea.

  61. Well stated.

  62. […] think this is an excellent post. I strongly encourage you to click over there and take the time to […]
