Firearms refresher course reasons to own guns

Hello again! In light of the publicity I've been getting over my review of Spike Lee's new film Chi-raq and in light of recent shootings in gun free zones and states with tough gun laws as well as continued attacks on the NRA and the 2nd amendment, I've decided to repost a Firearms refresher course. One of my first ever posts.

 An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.

 A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.

 Smith & Wesson: The original point and click interface.

 Gun control is not about guns; it's about control.

 If guns are outlawed, can we use swords?

 If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.

 Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.

 If you don't know your rights you don't have any.

 Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

 The United States Constitution ) 1791. All Rights Reserved.

 What part of "shall not be infringed" do you not understand ?

 The Second Amendment is in place in case they ignore the others.

 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.

 Guns only have two enemies: Rust and Politicians.

 Know guns, know peace and safety. No guns, no peace nor safety.

 You don't shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.

 911 - government sponsored Dial a Prayer.

 Assault is a behavior, not a device.

 Criminals love gun control - it makes their jobs safer.

 If Guns cause Crime, then Matches cause Arson.

 Only a government that is afraid of it's citizens try to control them.

 You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.

 Enforce the "gun control laws" we have, don't make more.

 When you remove the people's right to bear arms, you create slaves.

The American Revolution would never have happened with Gun Control.

"...a government by the people, for the people..."

 "The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference; they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
~ George Washington.

 "The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."
~ Alexander Hamilton.

 "Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property."
~ Thomas Paine.

 "Americans need not fear the federal government because they enjoy the advantage of being armed, which you possess over the people of almost every other nation."
~ James Madison.

 "Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks."
~ Thomas Jefferson.

 "The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun."
~ Patrick Henry.

 "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes"
~ Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria.

 "To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
~ George Mason.

 "The said Constitution be never construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
~ Samuel Adams.

 "But the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible."
~ Hubert Humphrey.
) "I carried it (a revolver) religiously and during the summer I asked a friend, a man who had been one of Franklin's bodyguards in New York State, to give me some practice in target shooting so that if the need arose I would know how to use the gun."
~ Eleanore Roosevelt.

 "By calling attention to 'a well regulated militia', the 'security' of the nation, and the right of each citizen 'to keep and bear arms', our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny which gave rise to the Second Amendment will ever be a major danger to our nation, the Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important."
~ John F. Kennedy.

 "Mightn't it be better in those areas of high crime to arm the homeowner and the shopkeeper, teach him how to use his weapons and put the word out to the underworld that it is no longer totally safe to rob and murder? One wonders indeed if the rising crime rate isn't due as much as anything to the criminal's instinctive knowledge that the average victim no longer has any means of protection. No one knows how many crimes are committed because the criminal knows he has a soft touch. No one knows how many stores have been left alone because the criminals knew them to be guarded by a man with a gun."
~ Ronald Reagan.

I Own Firearms Because History Says I Should:
 1911: Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

 1929: Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 40-60 million citizens, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated or starved to death.

 1935: China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

 1938: Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, Catholics and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

 1956: Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated."

 1964: Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

 1966-1976: China still has gun control. Another 50-100 million civilians, unable to defend themselves, were killed in Mao Tse Tung's "Cultural Revolution".

 1970: Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

 1990s: Rwanda established gun control. In a span of 100 days in April 1994, 800,000 people who were unable to defend themselves were massacred to death - most by machetes. How many dead, hacked-up bodies do you think were found holding a loaded gun? (answer is less than one)

 1992: Los Angeles California, USA. For three days police stood by and watched, unable to stop the rioting, arson and destruction of whole neighborhoods. Yet many Korean stores were virtually untouched - protected by their well-armed storeowners who exercised their right to self-defense through their right to keep and bear arms and who did for themselves what the police were unwilling or unable to do.

 Late 1990s: Great Britain established total gun control. Robberies, burglaries and assaults have skyrocketted making London's violent crime rate now higher than anywhere in America.

 2005: New Orleans hit by hurricane. Widespread catastrophe, no law enforcement across most of the city for weeks. Some citizens protected themselves with firearms - until NOLA police began forcefully confiscating them "for their own protection", leaving even the elderly unable to defend themselves against roving gangs of looters.

 "Ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State."
~ Heinrich Himmler.

I Own Firearms Because It Is My God-Given Right To Self-Defense: "If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed."
~ Exodus 22:2

 "...he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one."
~ Luke 22:36

 "When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own palace, his goods are in peace."
~ Luke 11:21

 "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
~ Declaration of Independance.

I Own Firearms Because I Have Common Sense: The second amendment is not dependant on the most recent crime statistics - nor is my right to own a gun contingent on what criminals do.

 2 million times a year, private citizens successfully use firearms to defend themselves.

 Criminals fear victims holding guns, not victims holding phones.

I Own Firearms Because There Are Those With Power Who, If Given The Chance, Would Force Me To Relinquish Them:

 "I don't care about crime. I just want to get the guns."
~ Former Senator Howard Metzenbaum, D-OH during Brady Bill debates.

 "If someone is so fearful that, that they're going to start using their weapons to protect their rights, makes me very nervous that these people have these weapons at all!"
~ Rep. Henry Waxman, D-NY, 5/2001 MSNBC report on .50BMG rifles.

were at war with terrorists! don't even think about enacting new gun laws! the ones we have have failed!

This refresher course is needed more than ever. Study after study after study after study across the board shows that more guns DOES lead to less crime. More gun laws do not lead to less guns just making sure that those who obey the law are not armed. That's all.

If anythin, Chi-raq, the war on terror and our gun homocide/suicide rates show why we don't need guns. I believe that only citizens in good standing who pass a mental health check should own small arms. We don't need more firearms proliferation. If it were up to me, ban them all over the nation so gangstas can't come up here and buy a gun with a fake ID or lie on a background check to kill kids in Chicago.
