Why I voted for Obama, twice.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about a voting block that President Obama caught. They’re called low-information voters and are not race-specific, ethnic-specific, or income-specific. If you were like me, scratching my head over how in the world this community organizer could be re-elected in such a dire economic and jobless environment, this video should clear it up. You have the racial aspect, and what became known as the Santa Claus effect.

Don’t know who this person is. But if this is satire, it’s really good.

Gun Dealers Have Problems With Credit Card Processors

Nick McMillan, a gun dealer in Tennessee, recently received an email from Intuit Payment solutions informing him the company was no longer interested in processing his credit card sales. Well isn’t that special? Intuit also sells TurboTax and Quickbooks.

In the email the company wrote “Intuit does not support the services you are providing” and then the reason stated was firearms, ammunition, gun parts and accessories sales not sold in a face-to-face environment with the credit card being swiped.

As you might expect, the KOSites are estatic over it.

There are plenty of gun-friendly credit card processors out there. Payment Alliance International is one.

Tawana Brawley served with court order to pay man she accused of rape in 1987sharpton_brawley1

sharpton_brawleyInfamous hoaxster Tawana Brawley — whose outrageous rape lie 25 years ago inflamed racial tensions nationwide — yesterday was finally slapped with a court order to settle a hefty defamation case against her. It also made Al Sharpton famously famous. Johnny Cochran paid off Sharpton’s bills on the case. Wonder if the good Reverend will step up and pay Tawana’s bill?

Obama’s Next Straw Man Argument For Gun Control

President Obama made his argument today like this, “We don’t want our police to be out gunned.” Well, who could disagree with that? Especially when I’ve seen police with full auto weapons, shotguns, and multiple magazines. But that’s not the problem. Thugs aren’t going around robbing and shooting police.

The community organizer won’t acknowledge that law-abiding Americans don’t want to be out gunned by criminals. That, and Americans don’t want the least competent entity in our lives, the federal government, taking away our choice and in fact making our choice for us, as to what kind of firearms and capability that we feel we need to keep our family and property safe.

Where my and my family’s safety and property are concerned, I’m pro-choice. Ironically, the federal government is pro-choice when it comes to taking lives, but not for saving lives.

Fail, Economy Saved Or Created

It is amazing how the Left (which now includes the mainstream media), from the President on down, continues to speak about the ‘economic recovery.’ Even the slightly curious can verify that their talking points are even less credible today than they were 5 months ago. All economic indicators are down. And for the first time since the recession, GDP has gone negative.

All of President Obama’s ‘investing’ has got us record unemployment, record annual deficits, record national debt, high food and energy costs, and higher health care costs. And while we watch the rise of radical Islam all over the world, the Federal Reserve continuing to monetize the debt and devalue the dollar, further depressing the world economy, the public’s attention is drawn towards reducing crime by telling citizens that they can no longer decide for themselves what kind of firearms they feel they need to protect their family and property. Left to their own devices, the administration will take your choice away.

The contracting economy is all the evidence you need to see that record government spending and borrowing is not making the economy better. All that, plus the attempts to tread on personal liberty, economic freedom, and the U.S. Constitution has been counter productive to everything the administration says, emphasis on ‘says,’ it wants to do.

It isn’t hard to imagine that if Obama was a Republican, the media would be writing stories about impeachment of the most incompetent President in our lifetime.

Gun Buyback Program Backfires

This is too funny. Look what President Obama started.

While thousands of Seattle residents lined up for hours to trade their handguns, rifles and family heirlooms away in exchange for up to $200 in gift cards as part of the city’s latest gun buyback program, gun collectors who have seen prices for assault rifles and firearms accessories almost triple since November took advantage of a huge opportunity.

Police stood in awe as gun enthusiasts and collectors waved wads of cash for the guns being held by those standing in line for the buyback program.

John Diaz, Seattle’s Police Chief,  wasn’t pleased with the turn of events stating “I’d prefer they wouldn’t sell them,” but admitted it’s perfectly legal for private individuals to buy and sell guns, FOR NOW.

The gun buyback program turned into an ad hoc gun swap meet. The police did get something no one expected, a spent Stinger shoulder fired missile launcher.

Gun Goddesses Ladies Shoot

Topics like this didn’t used to be political in nature. But through no fault of lawful gun owners everywhere, anything to do with a gun has become a political issue.

In the interest of gun safety, on February 9, 2013, there is an event at the Escambia River Gun Club for women only that you should know about. Looks like a good chance for ladies to get some expert experience and advice from NRA Certified Pistol Instructors.

It’s The Constitution Stupid

Dianne Feinstein
The body language says it all.

Here we go again. Pick out the enemy, isolate it, demagogue it if that’s what it takes to win your point. It works whether it’s nationalizing health care or winning elections. It’s a tactic outlined in Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals and explains to a ‘T’ why this administration does what it does. This time the subject is controlling guns and everything associated with it. If you’re not for gun control, then you must want school children to die. The low-information crowd eat that up and, with this administration, there’s an unlimited amount of ‘feed’ to be had.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who’s leading the push to restore an assault weapon ban, acknowledged on Sunday that the effort faces tough odds to pass Congress and she blamed the nation’s largest gun-rights group.

This time the perceived enemy is the NRA. That’s only because they can’t run against the founding fathers for writing the second amendment. They can’t openly run against the Constitution. Just like they couldn’t openly run against ‘health care.’ So they made health insurance companies the bad guy and campaigned against them. The result of the current gun control push, if successful, is likely to end up with the same disastrous results as the Affordable Care Act. Where everything it was promised to do failed.

Record Turnout, High Prices At Florida Gun Shows

Opening hours line at the Florida Gun Show in Pensacola.

Through my unscientific poll of Facebook posts, people are saying that the lines to get into the gun shows in Pensacola, Jacksonville, Orlando, and Miami are the longest ever. Since the gun store shelves are almost empty and out of ammo, I have to believe that President Obama wins the ‘Top Gun’ Salesman of the Year award.

It was heartening to see so many people getting CWP (Concealed Weapons Permit) training. Young, old, Black, White, and everywhere in between. And they weren’t all republicans either. Believe it or not, democrats believe in personal protection too. Contrary to Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Barack Obama’s argument, I didn’t see any gang members or gang bangers there buying guns. I saw everyone there that was buying, filling out the required paperwork and going through the background check procedure.

The laws of supply and demand have affected the firearms industry, at least at the retail level. Weapons like the AR15 that was $600-700 three months ago, are now between $2000 -3000. Ammo? You’re lucky if you find what you’re looking for. There was no 40 caliber range ammo, which was what I was looking for. I later found some, at before hysterical (over $1.00/round) prices  too, at a local shop off the beaten path. Not at the gun show. The name of which shall stay my secret. You’ll have to email me to get it.

Happy Shooting!

Busy Day At The Shooting Range

In celebration of Gun Appreciation Day, I went to the Escambia River Gun Club shooting range to get some practice. My guest and I had a great time. We both decided we needed to hit the range more often than once or twice a year.

Coincidentally, the Club was conducting a CWP (Concealed Weapon Permit) class too. It was a pretty good size class with 42 people getting expert training from 21 qualified trainers. I was pleasantly surprised to see so many women getting qualified. It’s a beautiful thing.

I can’t speak for all gun clubs, but this one offers CWP training, and they take it seriously. If you’re thinking of getting the training to qualify for a conceal carry permit, this is an excellent place to go. The CWP class is a few hours at the range, and a few hours in a classroom setting. Much more than you will get at say, the gun show CWP class. Check out their website for dates and details.

Since there was so much going on at the range today, I grabbed some pictures.

Our Un-Presidential President

Remember when President Obama said this at his anti-gun pep rally yesterday?

40 percent of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check.

Here’s where he had to go to come up with that bogus (for 2013) number. Now watch how many news sources in the mainstream media will report the truth about Obama’s “statistic” that is his main justification for panic and new gun laws.

The dubious statistic of guns that avoided background checks — which is actually 36 percent — comes from a small 251-person survey on gun sales two decades ago, very early in the Clinton administration. Most of the survey covered sales before the Brady Act instituted mandatory federal background checks in early 1994.

“If Obama’s gun control case is so strong, why can’t he make it without using cooked numbers, or surrounding himself with children?” Like a good community organizer will do, if you don’t have a crisis, make one up if it will help your cause.
