‘Hell yes, we’re gonna take your AR-15, your AK-47…’

By Associated Press – Re-Blogged From Liberty Headlines

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke‘s recent vow to take away people’s AR-15 and AK-47 rifles raised one big question: How is it possible to round up the millions of such guns that exist in the United States?

The number of AR-15 and AK-47s in the U.S. is estimated at a staggering 16 million, creating logistical challenges to take them out of circulation. Many gun owners are also unwilling to turn over the weapons, and if the government offered to buy them all back at face value, the price tag could easily run into the billions of dollars.

A Huntsville, Alabama International House of Pancakes employee drew his own gun in self-defense and the defense of others after a man began shooting at store employees.  In the process, the employee was wounded but the confrontation ended with the aggressor being killed, according to police.

Disarmed Countries – What Do they Look Like?

“So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathan.” (1 Samuel 13:22)

Just recently, while taking care of business, I walked into a craft store where a woman was working. At first, I was not sure if I heard an English accent or not.  She spoke again and then I was sure of it.

I asked, “Are you from England?” and she said that she was. I then asked her how disarmament was working out for the people there.

South Carolina Introduces Secession Bill In Response To Latest Attacks On Gun Owner Rights

By Tim Brown – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

The US occupied state of South Carolina, at least that is what I call my home state, is once again presenting a front just as she did against the tyrant Abraham Lincoln before the War of Northern Aggression.  Three House representatives introduced a bill that would allow for representatives to debate the issue of secession “if the federal government confiscates legally purchased firearms in this State.”

The bill was sponsored by Republican Representative Mike Pitts (Laurens) and was co-sponsored by Republican Representatives Jonathon Hill (Anderson) and Ashley Trantham (Greenville).

Self-Defense Is A Basic Human Right

By Mac Slavo – Re-Blogged From Freedom Outpost

A website is putting the final nails in the coffin of the gun control debate for good.  If you’ve ever been on the fence about whether or not you think guns should or should not be regulated, look no further.

A Human Right, the website, breaks it down so far that even the most emotionally sensitive and over the top “ban all guns” Nazis can understand what they are actually marching for and demanding.

By Jenni Fink – Re-Blogged From IJR

The Parkland, Florida, school shooting yielded calls for more gun control, but Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd instead called for arming teachers.

Judd told Fox News that gun control on every campus in Florida dictates that no one can bring a gun onto campus. He added that the only person who violates this rule is the “crazed person — the active shooter.”
