Modern Muskets

Another instructional video that would clue in apparatchiks serving the government–media axis as to what the term assault rifle actually means:

Since assault weapons are already essentially banned, the definition has been expanded to the point of meaninglessness so as to advance the totalitarian goal of incrementally forbidding all means of individual defense. Before long we will be told that kitchen knives are assault weapons.

On a tip from dan.

    Police believe the armed robber who was canvassing a neighborhood in the 2500 block of Wichita near Hermann Park had no idea what he was in for when he picked his target.

    Chased down and shot by two citizens carrying legal weapons, Christopher Hutchins was caught, but not after he jumped a fence to try to escape and was mauled by a German Shepherd.

    “I don’t believe in guns,” said Dorsey. “I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of armed criminals. Someone obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself and the police were nowhere to be found.”

    Please see the source: I embellished his quote a bit so for what he really said, which was most of it, go there.

    Unfortunately, the crook is expected to recover.

    Even moonbats who abhor guns benefit at some level from the second amendment.
    And according to the statistics garnered by from the FBI’s Uniform Crime Statistics:

    Two-thirds of the people who die each year from gunfire are criminals being shot by other criminals.

    Let’s use the numbers from the study which was commissioned by the Clinton DoJ shortly after the K-G study came out (to refute the K-G numbers maybe? If so: Oops!). That study, conducted by Drs. Philip Cook and Jens Ludwig (who both have a long record as very strong proponents of very strict gun control) concluded that there were 1.46 million DGUs (defensive gun usages) per year.

    So we’ve determined that at least 25,000 lives per year are saved by DGUs, and according to the CDC, between 1999 and 2010 there were an average of 11,740 gun-related homicides annually, which means that for every criminal homicide with a firearm there were more than two lives saved by DGUs; this is the human value of the Second Amendment.

    We all fully understand the point he is trying to make, but assault is a behavior, NOT a device.

    I guess I’ll start calling my semiautomatic .30-06 M-1 Garand a “Battle Rifle”.

    One thing the left does well, that the right doesn’t do so well, is to organize and fight an issue with talking points. If every pro second ammendment person that went on the news talk shows would start saying that before we talk about disarming law abiding citizens, lets talk about our government arming criminals through Fast and Furious. First we find out why this administration was arming drug cartels, then we will start talking about gun control. Every single time someone is on a talk show, bring this issue up. I think if they did, then this whole gun control issue would die overnight because the media does not want to ask the administation about it, and the administration does not want to talk about it. Let’s give them their own medicine.

    Fact is, anything that can be used to assault someone is an assault weapon. It doesn’t have to be a gun, unless of course, you are trying to use hysteria and fear to get a British-style “total” ban.

    Will the confiscations start before or after Comrade Zimmerman is found not guilty? Even a musket shooting a .50+ caliber ball will come in handy when sobama’s sons in the Hussein Jugend Corps come calling to spread some vibrant diversity with kumbaya singing.

    The LIEberals are directly responsible for the need Citizens feel for being armed.

    LIEberal judges turn violent felons loose on a regular basis, the Willie Horton campaign ad was a perfect illustration of that and because of its effectiveness in communicating that fact, was vilified by the LIEberal media.

    LIEberal NGOs galore agitate against and hamper the appliction of the death penalty.

    LIEberals passed the Ted KKKennedy Immigration Act in the 60s, which allowed in plenty of violent turd worldists.

    Both parties have flung the borders wide open and have refused to close them back up, thus inviting criminals of all stripes into the country.

    Things have gotten a whole lot more violent and savage, largely due to LIEberal politics ad now they want to keep us from defending ourselves.

    I predict a huge problem once they pass gun laws because once someone kills an intruder with an unregistered or otherwise verboten gun, they will be subject to prosecution.

    That’s the real end run around the Second Amendment they are working on.

    Holder and his NBP ilk don’t want you to answer violence with equal or superior violence.

    As Pelosi said, we gotta get them dangerous assault magazines off the streets.

  13. SaltRifle says:

    They’ve already taken our weapons. the 2nd doesn’t say the right to bear pussy arms shall not be infringed. If the gubbmint is coming with tanks, grenade launchers, machine guns and fully automatic real assault rifles, then to exercise our right to de-elect a fascist tyrannical gubbmint we need equal or better firepower.

    Keeping the good guys restricted to hunting rifles while the army gets M16s means we’re already outgunned.
