Liberals Trying Anything to Rid Self-Defense
The ‘Stand Your Ground Law’ present in nearly half of our states is being attacked from all directions. The image they are portraying to the public could not be further from the truth; they are calling these self-defense laws, “Shoot First.” The Stand Your Ground Law has saved many lives and will continue to do so in the future. We must stand our ground against these lawmakers to make sure we retain the freedom to defend ourselves.
On May 8th, at around 4 o’ clock a report broke that democrats were pushing an amendment to overturn the ‘Stand Your Ground Law’. This amendment was going to cut 20% from the Byrne Justice Assistance Grants in States that had these self-defense laws. These grants fund many things including Law Enforcement. So not only did they want to cut the self-defense law putting more pressure on Law Enforcement to regulate crime, they would then cut funding from the Law Enforcement who would need a surplus of funding if these self-defense laws were banished.
Just 5 short hours later the democrats withdrew the ‘Trayvon Amendment’! This victory has come from national support of these self-defense laws. The constant pressure we are putting on these liberals thanks to all of you who have made your voice heard is stopping anti-gunners in their tracks. Representative Keith Ellison, a democrat from Minnessota, says he will try to force a debate at a more “appropriate” time. Not on our watch… We will keep the people informed when these liberals try to take away our self-defense freedoms.
As you can see from this map, states all over the country have a version of the ‘Stand Your Ground’ law. These anti-gun lobbyists would love nothing more than to rid the law completely.
The only stories of the Stand Your Ground laws the media leaks are when the law is being portrayed in a negative light. We educate the public on the good that comes of this law. A week before New Year’s Eve toward the end of December 2011, Sarah McKinley’s husband and father of their 3 month old baby died of cancer. On the day of his funeral a man stopped by her house who simply told Sarah he wanted to say hello, she did not let him in. A week later on New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2011, the man returned with his friend and a footlong, not a meatball marinara from Subway but rather a 12″ hunting knife. Sarah sat with her 3 month old baby on the phone with 911 waiting for the door to be kicked in by these hooligans. The 911 operator told her to do what she had to, protect your child.
Sarah was a brave mother; when that door got kicked in she made this the last mistake Justin Martin would ever make as she put one in his chest with her shotgun. The Police backed Sarah McKinley 100% when Detective Dan Huff said, “You’re allowed to shoot an unauthorized person that is in your home. The law provides you the remedy, and sanctions the use of deadly force.” Why wasn’t this mother portrayed as a hero and brought on every national talk show to talk about her self-defense rights?
This unfortunate situation with the shooting of Trayvon Martin has people chomping at the bit to get rid of these laws nationwide. They say it is a “shoot first”, ask questions later law. Surely, if their heads were being slammed into the ground and they needed to defend themselves, they’d have a different view on things. These people are simply anti-gun whackos who are taking advantage of a situation to rid something they don’t agree with. All we know right now is what the media has fabricated. A producer was fired at NBC for tampering with the 911 call; he only included bits and pieces of the call to make George Zimmerman appear racist and judgmental.
Liberal media and anti-gunners have taken advantage of a young man’s death to come after our Nation’s citizen’s right to defend themselves. We must let our voice be heard supporting this great law now!
It’s Time to Stand Together
and Stand Up for What’s Right.
While I’ve little interest in getting in the middle of the Obama birth issue, Paul Hollrah over at FSM did so yesterday and believes the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:
What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi ?
So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later? And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York , Jakarta , and Karachi , what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration?
The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama’s citizenship a moot question.
Q: Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20?
A : Yes, by his own admission.
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities.
1) He traveled with a U.S. Passport,
2) He traveled with a British passport, or
3) He traveled with an Indonesia passport.
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. Passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department’s “no travel” list in 1981.
When Obama went to Pakistan in 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport. If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were traveling with an Indonesian passport that would tend to prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.
Whatever the truth of the matter,the American people need to know how he managed to become a “natural born” American citizen between 1981 and 2008. Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ( Jeremiah 29:11)
