Discussing guns- why you must always be prepared for anything
People often ask why I'm such a staunch advocate for gun rights, why I believe so strongly in the 2nd Amendment, and why I close my preparedness letters to you with the words, "store ammo and guns."
[[Like thousands of others, the Poor Man served our nation to protect our rights from enemies both foreign and domestic and that includes our 2nd Amendment]
The easy answer is that looting, gangs, large mobs, home invasions and even usually innocuous situations like traffic jams put innocent people in dangerous situations. Without warning, individuals and families can easily and all-to-quickly find themselves surrounded, or in a dangerous spot.
A gun is an equalizer.
Martin Luther King Jr., upon whose Bible President Obama swore to uphold the Constitution, agreed. He reportedly kept an arsenal of firearms in his home to ease his mind about the near constant death threats that he received. The peace-promoting civil rights leader even applied for an Alabama concealed carry permit, but was denied due to racism on the part of the police that had the authority to issue the permit.
Even a so-called pacifist like King knew that when people have no arms, they have no security and no hope of security.
The anti-gun crowd doesn't care.
They continually try to foist all kinds of specious "research" on us, stating that guns in the home are supremely dangerous (so are household chemical cleaners and pesticides). And they use their adjuncts in the lamestream media to insist that there are often "mass shootings" in the U.S.
The truth is that despite the shootings in California and Buffalo recently, these incidents are mostly either murders (tragic, but not "mass shootings"), gang-related shootings, or arguments in public places gone wrong. This is the case with the Houston flea market shootings, which you may not have heard of because it doesn't fit the media's narrative, no bystanders were injured, and the sheriff's office emphasized that the shooting was "not a random act of violence."
Actual statistics on gun deaths in America are hard to pin down because there is no central source or common methodology for tracking them. Also, the numbers published by various sources sometimes tend to be skewed (or outright manipulated) to reflect the point of view of the source regarding guns.
However, in 2019, the latest year we have statistics for, The FBI's "Crime In the United States" reports tells us that rifles — including ones like the "scary" Bushmaster XM-15 rifle used in Buffalo that gun grabbers are constantly trying to ban — were used to commit 364 murders.
Hands and feet were used in 687 murders.
A ban on hands and feet would be far more effective in reducing homicides than would banning any gun.
This is only one piece of statistical evidence that shows us why it is critical that we know the real facts and stand at the ready to set the record straight in any discussions we are party to where the misinformation and disinformation gushing from liberal politicians and media wonks takes center stage.
Despite any evidence contrary to their beliefs, the anti-gun crowd wants you to believe "mass" shootings are committed because guns are available, and because of the weapon used. Anti-gunners desperately want you to think that there aren't enough gun laws and that we need more bans on more weapons because "weapons of war" are being used to kill masses of people.
President Biden and his gun-grabbing followers call every weapon that isn't a handgun an "assault" weapon, as is the case with the recent Buffalo shooting. But as I mentioned earlier, those tragic murders were perpetrated with a Bushmaster XM-15. It's not an assault weapon, and not a weapon of war. It isn't even automatic. It's a rifle, tragically used for a terrible purpose, but not because it's a rifle. The murders occurred because of the perpetrator.
The media piles on by managing the message to create the illusion that what "the people" want is more gun bans. Take a look at this interview by CNN. Notice the video cuts video off after he says "But it is a shame, something needs to happen, 'cause this is ridiculous" leading the viewer to think that he means we need to ban guns. This video from Fox News shows the actual interview continues, as the man adds that there need to be more armed good guys who "know what they're doing" with a gun.
'Need' for guns
A key statistic to know about gun deaths, in general, is that most of them are not murders, but suicides. Dr. Scott Bonn wrote in Psychology Today that there are now nearly three suicides for every murder in America. Many of the suicide deaths are attributed to the use of anti-depressants (and as I have written to you before, many of the "mass shootings" are also committed by young people who are taking prescription medication).
The Buffalo shooter had been sent for mental health treatment the year before after threatening to shoot up his high school. Is the failure a lack of gun laws? That we don't "need" guns? Is our Constitution flawed? Or is the way America treats mental health flawed?
It is critical to remember that the 2nd Amendment was not included in the Bill of Rights to only ensure Americans could defend themselves against criminals, so the argument that we "don't need" guns is a non sequitur.
There will be a renewed push by the Left to create more anti-gun laws that will also not stop these random and infrequent mass shootings. For the gun-grabbers, if one law is in place to prevent a thing and the thing occurs anyway, two more, three more, six more will certainly do the trick.
This is the way liberty is lost, one law at a time. And then, one day, a once-free nation finds itself in bondage. When the state has "a monopoly on legitimate violence," as Congressweasel Jerrold Nadler of New York once claimed it does, Americans are no longer citizens; they are subjects.
Americans will not become subjects. With hundreds of millions of guns in American homes, a gun-free future is not going to happen; if it is forced, a bloody and unwarranted fight is likely in the cards.
Still, we supporters of 2nd Amendment rights must not, under any circumstances, let our guard down. We must remain vigilant to repel the attempts by Biden and his horde to take away our guns or, barring that, to take away our ammunition to render our guns useless. Also:
- You can become a member of a pro-gun organization like Gun Rights for America. What about the NRA? Well… that Alabama permit law under which MLK was denied? It had been an NRA-backed initiative.
- Learn about District of Columbia vs. Heller and your right to bear arms.
- Keep tabs on your state's gun laws with this state directory.
- Monitor lawmaker activities, not only in Congress but at your state and local levels as well. Attend the town hall meetings and speak up.
- Buy a gun, get trained in its use and practice, practice, practice. Have a spare magazine handy. Don't be a helpless victim.
- Check out the list of gun laws, alphabetically by state so that you know everything you need for purchase.
- If you need a conceal-carry license, go here for one that works in multiple states.
- Support candidates who vow to stand up for gun rights.
- Participate in social media discussions on gun control in rational terms with proof from crime statistics databases like the FBI's (Read the reports and you'll see that gun violence is going down, not up).
In years gone by that many people reloaded spent ammunition. This would be a great opportunity for you if you would like to learn a secondary trade for a post-collapse society, or if the gun-grabbers succeed in making ammunition difficult to buy.
Make no mistake about it: the ultimate goal of the gun control
gang is not to limit gun ownership to law-abiding citizens but to eliminate the
presence of guns in citizens' hands entirely.
Yours for the truth,

Mass shootings in America
*Idiots in DC are loons if they think they can legislate morality or insanity…
*DC , along with Hollywood & Media have routinely undermined morality for decades via fatherless homes, emasculation of men, Godlessness, welfare, etc.
Horrific mass shootings in Texas and upstate New York within the past two weeks have fueled a new public outcry for gun reform
The Stupidity of the Left
Liberals HATE the Middle Class-View Tucker Carlson
When the Hell are leftists going to get over their Trump Obsession? Leftists are are the real scum!
Food riots. Recession warnings. Oil shortages. Inflation spiking. All of these things are connected and spring from the same source; defective “leadership.” Serious predicaments and unserious leaders mean it’s time to prepare.
There’s more and more signs that we’ve reached the end of our prosperous period. Energy, food, and water shortages. Hyperinflation. Riots around the world. War…and now a spate of horrific violence (on top of the growing daily violence American cities experience)….
Violence: Why History and Politics Predict It’s Going To Get Worse
People are on edge and with good reason. We are possibly looking at a repeat of 2020 with riots, violence and physical destruction, all potentially tied to the November elections as an end result. With the Supreme Court alone, protestors are outside judge’s homes and firebombing pro-life organization offices. We have lived with COVID-19 for …
Natural disasters don't wait for a convenient time
And you shouldn't wait to prepare either. In some cases there is little to no warning.
Prepare now to lessen the impact of disasters and emergencies
Remember: You can’t buy life insurance after you’re dead!
When you think about packing up items to help you survive a natural or human-made disaster, you often think of backpacks. And there is good reason.
Backpacks are sturdy, lightweight, and with multiple pouches and pockets, they allow you to stow a large number of essentials. They come in expandable widths and sizes to fit even your smallest family members. And the best part is that your hands remain free with a backpack.
