“Men must be ready, they must pride themselves and be happy to sacrifice their private pleasures, passions and interests, nay, their private friendships and dearest connections, when they stand in competition with the rights of society.”
–John Adams, letter to Mercy Warren, 1776
Really? You will?
Another opposition fighter recently spoke of his desire to see the Al-Qaeda flag fly over the White House once the rebels are victorious across the region. Suffice to say, he didn’t appear to be joking.
Okay…We’ll be waiting..

Led by conservative activist Star Parker, the founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education, more than a dozen black leaders spoke out in favor of gun rights at a press conference at Washington’s National Press Club.
“The call for universal background checks as qualifiers for constitutional rights invokes painful memories of Jim Crow laws and Black Codes,” said Parker, who was an unsuccessful California GOP congressional candidate in 2010.
Don’t think for one minute that isn’t why Ed O’Keefe’s piece, “Senators near a deal on background checks for most private gun sales,” was buried in the least-read edition of the week.
None of the assOs in Washington, anyone, none, no one, involved with Government, elected appointed or employed by the Taxpayer should be exempt…they especially Buck Ofama and his thugs should be hit the worst
Truth! Washington led by Buck Ofama and his minions has no clue what is truth or accurate anymore…Is all about their socialists elitist agenda and controlling the People by fear, threats and intimidation…
LOUISIANA — A charity group called “Hunters for the Hungry” donated 1,600 pounds of freshly processed deer meat, called venison, to local homeless shelters across the state. Hunters across Louisiana are outraged after state health officials ordered a rescue mission to destroy $8,000 worth of deer meat because venison is not allowed to be served in homeless shelters. But no good deed goes unpunished. The state of Louisiana refuses to allow homeless people to eat venison under any circumstances. Not only that, but the Health Department officials would not even allow the hunters to take their meat back and gladly use it for something else. Instead, government workers ripped open every package of meat, put them into dumpsters, and poured bleach on all the meat. They claimed that the bleach bath would prevent animals from getting sick from eating the meat. The Dept. of Health and Hospitals ordered the staff at the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission to throw 1,600 pounds of donated venison in garbage bins – and then ordered then to douse the meat with Clorox – so other animals would not eat the meat. “Deer meat is not permitted to be served in a shelter, restaurant or any other public eating establishment in Louisiana,” said a Health Dept. official in an email to Fox News. “While we applaud the good intentions of the hunters who donated this meat, we must protect the people who eat at the Rescue Mission, and we cannot allow a potentially serious health threat to endanger the public.” That statement set off a firestorm among hunters and lawmakers who called it outrageous and insulting. “That’s a mild understatement,” said Richard Campbell, one of the founders of Hunters for the Hungry, a group that has been donating wild game to shelters since 1993. “Hunters are going nuts over it. It’s created an outrage across our state and even over into Mississippi.” The controversy started when someone being fed at the rescue mission complained about being fed deer meat. Henry Martin, executive director of the mission, told Fox News they’ve been serving deer meat for years – from deer chili to deer spaghetti. “This was really good meat,” he said. “It’s high in protein and low in cholesterol. It’s very healthy.” Martin said he was extremely bothered by the way state health inspectors handled the situation. “You would think we would have due process,” he said. “But they meant to destroy the meat – that’s for sure.” The mission’s chef asked if they could at least return the meat to the processing plant – but the state officials said no. “They actually took it out to the dumpsters, split the packages open and poured Clorox on it,” Martin told Fox News. He said the rescue mission serves 200,000 meals a year – without a single dime of assistance from the state or federal governments. As a result of the confiscation, he said as many as 3,200 meals were lost. “It seems like this was a senseless act,” he said. “I don’t think hungry people who come to our mission appreciate the fact they could have been eating some really good venison and as it is now – no one can eat it.” The Health Dept. defended their actions and said they had to pour Clorox on the meat as an “extra precaution so that animals would not eat it from the dumpster and become sick or die.” “This is a process called ‘denaturing,’” they stated. Campbell said the venison comes from deer management programs – where hunters have to kill a lot of deer. “We ask our hunters once they fill up their own freezers to give the extra to the needy,” he said. Once the deer is donated, a local processing plant prepares the meat for the shelters. And hunters in the Sportsman’s Paradise have always responded to the call – including State Rep. Jeff Thompson. “As a hunter and somebody who has personally donated deer to this program, I’m outraged and very concerned,” he told Fox News. “You hear about these stories anywhere and it’s a concern – but when it happens in your own backyard it’s insulting.” Thompson said he is meeting with the heads of state agencies as well as state lawmakers to make sure the rules are changed. “We take pride in helping our neighbors and to see thousands of dollars worth of meat that would help the hungry go to waste is absolutely disturbing to me,” he said. Thompson said at the very least the meat should have been returned to those who donated it. “We want to make sure the generosity of hunters and processors are honored and the hungry are provided with the food they are very much in need of,” the lawmaker added Like us @ Da Cajun Patrol
Late night. #2 Son had a Lacrosse match/meet/game/ not really sure what to call it. Wish it had been around when I was his age. A stick, a ball, shoulder pads,, helmets, running, hitting, shooting etc? Looks fun and he likes it. I enjoyed the heck out of my 10 years or so playing Broomball…Until the powers that be decided to take the ‘checking’ aspect out…Sissified it..
But the game was at 11pm last night so it was a bit late when we got home as the Irish Sports Dome is 20 miles away.
No whistling, stabbing with a pen, crawling to a call box, listening to stupid politicians..
I sincerely hope not. I do.
But if it comes.
Raise your hands..
We certainly have stopped paying attention to all the rest of them silly Amendments!!
But what about that War on Drugs bullcrap?
We appear to have lost that one..
SO now lets have a War on Guns…
Thats not going to end well either..
And will the anti gun politicians listen?
Those companies include:
- LaRue Tactical
- Olympic Arms
- Extreme Firepower Inc, LLC
- Templar Custom
- York Arms
- Cheaper than Dirt
- Midway USA
Well, reports have been coming in about additional companies who are joining the bandwagon against government and law enforcement sales in states that have chosen to deny their residents their Constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.
If you know of additional companies holding law enforcement and government agencies to the same standards as civilians, please make a note of it in the comment section and we’ll link to them.
And then there’s our former friends at Armalite here in Geneseo, Illinois, a half-tank of gas from Guns Save Life’s headquarters.
A cafeteria fight at Minneapolis South High School escalated into a melee involving hundreds of students Thursday, spurred by what parents and students said are growing racial tensions between Somali-American students and others.
Police said that 200 to 300 students shoved, kicked and threw bottles at one other and that extra Minneapolis police officers were called in to break up the fighting. Three students and one staff member were taken to a hospital for medical treatment, and police said rioting and disorderly conduct charges could be filed. (Star Tribune)

Any Black Powder Rifle
Makes sense once you think about it!!
As would having a bow – re-curve..
and being able to use it.
As would a good slingshot..
Hopefully won’t ever be needed….
But to have just for the enjoyment and to practice with..shooting a slingshot and a bow is good practice…Hand/eye coordination etc..
Plus slingshots are just cool..I grew up as a wee lad with my Dad making me a few from the fork of a small tree or branch and cut up inner tubes…Much fun was had and yes it was often i the proverbial back pocket of my jeans..
He also showed me how to make a bow with just a piece of old chalk line…Today he would probably be chastised and I am sure I would have had some LEO or self important adult take them away….
And last but not least…A .22 simple, 22 long rifle would be a handy to have.
And folks liking the guns and stuff related to guns…And shooting the guns…and not each other!!
My #1 Son and couple of his buddies went with us…
We went into the store and looked over their huge collection of guns..
And I noticed a number of folks walking out with DPMS boxes so I inquired and found out they were selling these
DPMS Panther Oracle 5.56/.223 for 599.00, even called the wife and pleaded…to no avail…sigh..Guess I’ll stick with the SKS for now..
We enjoyed ourselves, although the rain cut the day short..
