Gun Nut Roundup May '09

National Park Gun Ban Defeated

Score one for the good guys! After a last minute, half-hearted attempt by the Bush administration to end the blanket ban on functional weapons on National Park Service (NPS) land was thwarted by an activist judge, gun owners finally killed the ban in Congress.

Pro-Second Amendment congresscritters (most notably Senator Tom Coburn [R-OK]) attached an amendment ending the ban to the Democrats recent credit card legislation. The Messiah is expected to sign it.

Far from cutting National Parks loose into armed anarchy, the provision would merely allow the gun laws of the state where the park is located to be enforced. This brings NPS in line with the gun policy of the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management, which have allowed state authorized weapons carry for years.

Trash In, Trash Out On Supreme Court

The Messiah has nominated anti-Second Amendment Judge Sonia Sotomayor (whose primary qualification appears to be possession of an Hispanic vagina) to the U.S. Supreme Court. If approved by the Senate, that is a lifetime appointment.

She would replace anti-Second Amendment, anti-property rights "Justice" David Souter. Although Souter was no friend of gun owners and constitutionalists, he was at least capable of occasional spurts of independent thought. Sotomayor promises to be a mindless rubber stamp for the liberals' big government, anti-Second Amendment agenda.

According to Gun Owners of America (GOA): "Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel earlier this year which ruled in Maloney v. Cuomo that the Second Amendment does not apply to the states. [...] In United States v. Sanchez-Villar, she stated that “the right to possess a gun is clearly not a fundamental right.” Thankfully, 65% of her rulings have been overturned. But on the Supreme Court, there would be nowhere else for cases to go.

Her two theses at Princeton were “Race in the American Classroom, and Undying Injustice: American ‘Exceptionalism’ and Permanent Bigotry" and “Deadly Obsession: American Gun Culture.” In the latter she stated the Second Amendment did not protect an individual right, but only government entities like the military. She went so far as to suggest that the Second Amendment itself BANS civilian gun ownership. Holy poop!

At GOA's legislative action center you can find your state's senators and send them a pre-written email asking them to vote against this moonbat.

Majority of Americans Oppose New Gun Control

A number of polls show that support for gun control is dwindling in America, even among Obama supporters. A couple of examples:

An April CNN poll showed that only 39% wanted more gun laws. 46% supported the status quo, while 15% thought gun laws should be loosened.

A Zogby poll, also in April, showed that 50% of Obama supporters thought that the government should enforce existing laws, NOT adopt new ones.

Editor of the Gallup Poll, Frank Newport says that "every bit of data is showing us that Americans are getting more conservative about gun control."
No, more libertarian Mr. Newport, more libertarian.

It's getting depressing these days to even wake up and look at the news, or what passes for news. To get real news, especially during the election of a false messiah, one must turn to the foreign press to get any facts. You really know things are crazy when PRAVDA has to decry the decline of America's Judeo-Christian values, the death knell of capitalism, and our rapid descent into Marxism. The Pravda article says it all and says it eloquently in a way every American journalist, if they had an ounce of integrity, should be doing. Russian propaganda; just doing the job the agendized, duplicitous Yellow Journalists of the American MSM can't or won't do.

The proud American will go down into his slavery with out a fight, beating
his chest and proclaiming to the world, how free he really is. The world will
only snicker.

Buried on the back page, but at least existing, one or two financial experts, tiny voices crying out in the wilderness, are warning of the consequences of the Obaminations' "Bail-out Bubble" and what happens when that bubble bursts, making the housing bubble sound like a popcorn fart.

“When this bubble bursts, there’s no re inflating it because of the
government intervention into it so deeply,” he said. “As you look through
history, it seems like governments become emboldened by their failures,” he
added. Celente pointed out that according to the Italian fascist leader Benito
Mussolini, the merger of state and corporate powers was called fascism.“We could
call this fascism lite,” he said, referring to the government involvement in
free enterprise. “After these kind of catastrophic collapses, sometimes they’re
followed by war.”

Speaking of fascism and war, how about a good old-fashioned book burning. In this case, burning the Holy Bible. It seems an American church sent an American serviceman in Afghanistan Bibles printed in Pashtu and Dari. Military authorities acted quickly to confiscate and burn the Bibles (just like the Taliban does!) fearing that if they were sent back they might be used again. It was feared that Afghanistan's practitioners of "The Religion of Peace" would riot, burn, kill and bomb our boys if Bibles were distributed. You know, we can't do anything that might offend the 11th Century fanatics who have outlawed all other religions in Afghanistan, the same peace-loving sweethearts who plunged into worldwide riots and mayhem by the hundreds of thousands over the insinuation that a Koran at Gitmo was abused, the darling little angels who issue death warrants for writers and/or cartoonists who offend their tender sensibilities. These are our faithful "allies" against, well, others of their own kind. Makes me want to burn a Koran, using a UN flag for tinder.

In domestic news, the 1st Amendment of the Bill of Rights, which reads, in part, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..." and the 4th Amendment, which guarantees us the people the right to "be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects", both take another kick in the teeth . In the fiscally and morally bankrupt People's Republik of Kalifornia (of course) public officials have investigated and threatened prosecution and fines against a San Diego pastor for holding Bible studies in his own home.

If that's not enough of a hit to the Fourth Amendment, the FCC, long known to truckers as "Uncle Charlie", is now claiming that if you have anything in your home that uses RF energy, technically including such devices as garage door openers, cell phones, baby monitors, or Wi-Fis, they have the right to conduct warrantless searches of your home at any time. In their minds, the Communications Act of 1934 trumps the United States Constitution!

No wonder the budding fascists running what's left of this country are so fearful of the Second Amendment. No doubt the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Samuel Adams, and others would have a solution to these abuses and usurpers. Instead, the modern American sheeple will go the way Pravda envisions. And the world is already snickering.

Green Berets vs. Spetsnaz

Although Bawb is the resident military historian and gun guru, I thought I'd write about a show I watched dealing with this subject on Spike TV. It was on a series called "Deadliest Warrior," wherein they pit various fighting groups against each other in hypothetical battle. This week was U.S. Special Forces vs. Russian Spetznaz.

They tested each side's weapons and had a couple of ex-Green Berets compete against a couple of Ruskies. I didn't catch the whole show because I tuned in late and had to change the channel when they were testing weapons on pig carcasses, because my wife and kid were in the room.

In the weapons tests, I believe the U.S. M4A1 Carbine tied with the Rusky AKS-74. This will no doubt come as a surprise to Bawb, who frequently calls the M16 series of assault rifles "the finest battle implements ever devised" and compares shooting them with "wielding the fist of God." (Okay, long time readers of this blog know that Bawb really hates M16s, but it's fun to mess with him!)

For sidearms, the Russian Makarov (I think) beat the U.S. M9, mostly because the Red was popping all the targets center-mass while the green beanie just winged a couple of them. The show's "experts" decided that the U.S. baseball grenade "blowed up real good" compared to the Rusky model. The Commie Saiga-12 combat shotgun beat the U.S. Mossberg 500. No surprise the bolt-action U.S. Army M24 easily outclassed the Rusky Dragunov SVD Sniper Rifle.

Each side got one "special weapon" to test. The Commies had a gee-whiz cool ballistic knife that launched its blade out at capitalist pigs. The Green Berets got stuck with a stinking entrenching tool for theirs. The green beanie did a good job hacking a mannequin apart with it, but the commie knife won.

My only experience with e-tools involved digging cat holes in the woods. I didn't know you could use them as a weapon. If only I would have known this the time my C.O. tried banning everyone from drinking booze for two weeks. (Notice I said tried. He-he-he!)

I don't want to get too technical here, but all the information from the tests (called "data") was entered into a special machine (called a "computer") by analysts (called "nerds") who figured out which group would win against each other. According to them, Spetsnaz was the victor.

I believe that could be true in a head-to-head deathmatch, but in any mission requiring any subtlety at all (such as a hostage rescue mission) my money's on the Green Berets. The Russian army is designed to be an 800-pound gorilla. If I had loved ones that needed rescued, they'd be the last ones I'd call.

Nonetheless, Spetsnaz won. As the winners, one of the Spetsnaz troopers got to defecate on the American flag while the other one pimp-slapped your mama. Damned commies!

To all of you out there who may have been living in a bomb shelter since the Cuban Missile Crisis, here's some more proof that our Federal government, already madly out of control under Bush, has gone utterly and completely insane under Obama.

As for the Messiah himself, Mr. Change, Mr. "Transparent Government", the guy who criticized so harshly the Shrub's abuse of Executive Orders (OK, I actually agreed with that one) and so delighted in releasing Bush Administration records...well, some animals are more equal than others. His first day in office, Barack signed his own Executive Order to make his records strictly off-limits. I would assume this includes his elusive birth certificate. Somehow, possibly due to too much leg tingling, the media missed that one when it came by.

The MSM is Johnny-on-the-Spot, however, when it comes to trumpeting Barry's brilliant budget cuts. Why, he's cut a gigantic, huge, tremendous, amazing $17 billion from the Federal budget. A very admirable achievement were it not for him spending $3 trillion on the rest of the budget.

So, to put this in perspective, here's a billion dollars.
Now, here's a trillion bucks.
And to illustrate the point even better, here's Barry's budget cuts in relation to the rest of his spending.

And, to keep further beating this dead horse, it should be noted that Fannie Mae is now getting another $19 billion in taxpayer funds, completely wiping out the awesome budget cuts and then some.

While Fannie gets more of our money shoveled in the doors, let's take a look at some of the budget cuts we will get so much benefit from. First off, construction of the border fence with Mexico is being suspended. Then, we save an additional $400 million by pulling the funding for local law enforcement agencies to help enforce the immigration laws the Feds are failing to. Unfortunately, by saving a few hundred million bucks here, we open ourselves up to approximately $338 billion in losses (by last count) from illegals' impact on welfare, medical care, education, local law enforcement, lost jobs, etc, etc. Brilliant plan that, wot?

In the outright ludicrous department, one Federal program that has managed to escape the budget axe is $400,000 for researchers to cruise the bars of Buenos Aries to study if gay Argentine men behave differently when they're drunk. Now there's something the American taxpayer should not be deprived of. You just can't make this stuff up, folks.

What could be the end result of all this fiscal insanity and irresponsibility? Let's look to starving, impoverished Zimbabwe, formerly the Breadbasket of Africa, and their monetary system.
Coming soon to a Republic near you! Spend all you want...we'll print more! But really, what can you expect with a Kenyan at the helm?

The Department of Homeland Security has been busy lately. It being politically incorrect to "profile" Arabic Muslim males from 20 to 40, such as those who crashed planes into skyscrapers on 9/11 and have been blowing up embassies and other targets all over the world for decades, the governmental thugs have decided to go after just about every other non-sheeple American as a "domestic terrorist". In a new document recently uncovered, dated March 26, DHS (also abbreviated NVKD) is now indentifying such clear and present dangers as Odin worshippers, all three of them, that we must be protected from.

While the new document does include real threats such as Aryan gangs, just about everyone else gets lumped right in with them. It would also seem that the Internet and talk radio are openly in the gunsights now as well.

"Alternate Media" is defined as, "...a term used to describe various information sources that provide a forum for interpretations of events and issues that differ radically from those presented in mass media products and outlets."

Control the media; right out of the Stalin and Hitler playbook. Here are a few other definitions identifying the greatest threats to these United States, according to the jackbooted thugs.

pg 4 Anti-Immigration Extremism(U//FOUO) A movement of groups or individuals who are vehemently opposed to illegal immigration, particularly alongthe U.S. southwest border with Mexico, and who have been known to advocate or engage in criminal activity and plot actsof violence and terrorism to advance their extremist goals. They are highly critical of the U.S. Government’s response toillegal immigration and oppose government programs that are designed to extend “rights” to illegal aliens, such as issuing driver’s licenses or national identification cards and providing in-state tuition, medical benefits, or public education.

pg 9 Rightwing Extremism(U//FOUO) A movement of rightwing groups or individuals who can be broadly divided into those who are primarily hate-oriented, and those who are mainly antigovernment and reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority. This term also may refer to rightwing extremist movements that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.(also known as far right, extreme right)

pg 10 Tax Resistance Movement(U//FOUO) Groups or individuals who vehemently believe taxes violate their constitutional rights. Among their beliefs are that wages are not income, that paying income taxes is voluntary, and that the 16th Amendment to theU.S. Constitution, which allowed Congress to levy taxes on income, was not properly ratified. Members have been known to advocate or engage in criminal activity and plot acts of violence and terrorism in an attempt to advance their extremist goals. They often target government entities such as the Internal Revenue Service and the Bureau of Alcohol,Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.(also: tax protest movement, tax freedom movement, antitaxmovement)

pg 8 Patriot Movement(U//FOUO) A term used by rightwing extremists to link their beliefs to those commonly associated with the American Revolution. The patriot movement primarily comprises violent antigovernment groups such as militias and sovereign citizens.(also: Christian patriots, patriot group, Constitutionalists,Constitutionist)

Isn't it amazing? The people who come up with this crap have sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, the supreme law of the land, yet they consider those of us who believe that same Constitution should be followed to be terrorists.

Guns and Ammo Bought This Year

Excerpted from an article on WorldNetDaily by Bob Unruh:

"Guns purchased legally in the United States this year could outfit two armies – and not just any armies, the armies of China and India, according to new government reports cited by a website for sport-shooting enthusiasts.

"The federal National Instant Criminal Background Check System database statistics show there were more than 3.7 million background checks during the first three months of this year, compared to about 8 million annually not even a decade ago, according to the documentation assembled by

"That's not individual guns, that's background checks, the organization pointed out. If a purchaser obtains two, three or even four guns at a time, often there is only one background check.

"You also bought 1,529,635,000 rounds of ammunition in just the month of December. Yeah, that is right, that is billion with a 'b.' This number takes no account of reloading or reloaded ammunition," the report said.
"According to the Global Security website, the Indian army is estimated to have about 1 million soldiers. A news report from several years ago estimated the Chinese army at 1.7 million, although recent estimates put that at 2.25 million."

Ben says: In your face China and India! While Bawb and I are panting approvingly of these numbers so far, WE KNOW YOU CAN DO EVEN BETTER, AMERICA!

According to wikipedia, the six largest armies in the world equal about 8,143,900 troops (which is about equal to the 8 million number quoted in the above article as our usual yearly pre-Obama gun purchases).

Therefore, Ben and Bawb's Blog is challenging the American people to break the 10 army threshold! The ten largest armies in the world give us a number of 10,337,750. That should be no problem to buy more guns than that. It's only 2,193,850 more than our 8 million yearly average.

To do our part to help, Bawb and I have both graciously and selflessly volunteered to accept, as gifts, any excess guns that you, the American people, purchase and don't have room for. Of course, they would have to be legally purchased and transferred to us in compliance with all federal, state, and local laws, at no cost to ourselves.

I know many of you may feel compelled to toss around words like "heroes" when discussing Bawb and myself, but we eschew the term. We are merely doing our part to keep America great.

So come on, America! Buy more guns and give some to us. We will also accept cash.
