(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Bad news for Leftists: Guns UP & Crime DOWN


Yes, once again facts get in the way of the dirty little lies, the dirty little agendas of the Leftists, Demorats, Socialist Elites, DEM/MSM, and Limousine Liberals.

From The Washington Times:

Gun-control advocates are noticeably silent when crime rates decline. Their multimillion-dollar lobbying efforts are designed to manufacture mass anxiety that every gun owner is a potential killer. The statistics show otherwise.

Last week, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced that violent crime decreased 4 percent in 2011. The number of murders, rapes, robberies and aggravated assaults all went down, continuing a pattern.

“This is not a one-year anomaly, but a steady decline in the FBI’s violent-crime rates,” said Andrew Arulanandam, spokesman for the National Rifle Association. “It would be disingenuous for anyone to not credit increased self-defense laws to account for this decline.”

Mr. Arulanandam pointed out that only a handful of states had concealed-carry programs 25 years ago, when the violent-crime rate peaked. Today, 41 states either allow carrying without a permit or have “shall issue” laws that make it easy for just about any noncriminal to get a permit. Illinois and Washington, D.C., are the only places that refuse to recognize the right to bear arms. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence did not respond to requests for comment.

If the gun grabbers were right, we’d be in the middle of a crime wave, considering how many guns are on the streets. “Firearms sales have increased substantially since right after the 2008 election,” said Bill Brassard, spokesman for the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), which represents the $4 billion firearms and ammunition industry. “There was a leveling off in 2010, but now we’re seeing a surge again.”

And oddly enough -- I know you'll find this difficult to believe -- there was a run on guns directly after Mr Obama's election. Gun sales now -- with a second Obaka term potentially looming post-November -- are also escalating. To quote:
Sales usually increase this time of year with tax returns, but this year has been higher than most,” Mike Weeks, owner of Georgia Gun Store in Gainesville told FoxNews.com. “People are scared their gun rights are going to be curtailed after the election."

Weeks said his sales are up around 30 percent, and that he now sells ammo by the case.

“Usually people come in to buy three or four boxes for target practice. Now they are coming in asking what kind of deals they could get on a case,” he said.

Oddly enough, I also buy ammo by the case and not by the box. Imagine that.

Perhaps it's time for a review of the Second Amendment:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

Just what Leftists don't want you to know: gun ownership in America appears to diminish crime. Imagine that. Goes back to the quote: "an armed society is a polite society."

And trust me, ladies and gentlemen, I am customarily armed. My newest hang-around friend? The Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan in .454 Casull. And yes, I paid $1K for it. I am hoping, during my solo hikes, that I do not come in contact with mama bear and her cubs. Or a mountain lion. But if I do, I want to be the Boy Scout: prepared.

P.S.
Never in our history have we had a president who said so much which translated to so little. Mr Obama's voice now = that of Fran Drescher's. Or the sound of claws on a chalkboard.

That thing would fly out of my hand.

The stats... well, we all knew that it would go that way. What the MSM doesn't know is their lies in the Martin case have given more exposure to a convincing story about the merits of gun ownership.

The sign... priceless.
I wonder what ordinance it violates or how the civil suit would be constructed in the aftermath of an obliging reader.

Ya, BZ...I heard how there's a HUGE run on hand guns and the manufacturers can't keep up. People are scared...can we blame them?
I wish I had one

Last weekend took three ultra liberal women out to a range. Two had never fired a firearm. All three are interested in getting a concealed carry permit. All three are over 60 and all fear for their safety.

They only shot a .22 revolver. My only other pistol is a .44 Special. Not for a beginner.

(Sorry, the only "guns" I own are shotguns. Those Army drill instructors did a great job)

All true, S&W is 60 days out, Colt, Springfield, and Glock are over 30 days, and Ruger has stopped taking orders. Ammo prices are going up, but at least it's still available.

Every WHITE person in the USA should have a handgun large enough to kill a house intruder.
Also, you should have a shotgun in your bedroom that is loaded and ready to use at a moments notice.

Negro-ocracy is NOW HERE with Obama latest ruling on not releasing any documents on Fast and Furious.

This is it folks,,, The low-life negroes have now officially a leader known as Barak Obama.

So, do not go out anywhere unless you are ready to "put down" a rioting negro who will want to now harm you.
Obama's actions says it is ok to do this now.
As far as a .454 Casull is concerned, it is what is needed to "stop and drop" some of these negro bodyguards that I routinely see in the Dallas area.
They believe they are "untouchable".
My .357 SIG, daily carry, says otherwise.

∞ ≠ ø : I don't much find it enjoyable to shoot; it's not a gun for "fun." It's a gun for things I may encounter with large teeth and disagreeable dispositions.

Z: my guess is you can certainly go out and become armed yourself. Talk to gun owners, people in gun shops, find out what suits, take a course and there you go.

WSF: nothing wrong with a shotgun at ALL. When I was Rangemaster, I taught all my recruits to enjoy and respect Mr Shotgun. We have a traphouse and, once settled in, most all the recruits loosened up by shooting clay.

NFO: and get it whilst ye may. By the CASE and not by the meager box.

I think that gun would knock me on my rump or throw me back a few feet!

Watch out bad guys and mama bears!

There's only ONE reason I don't have MORE guns than I do.

I ran out of money!

Leticia: you don't need such a gun. There are MANY others that would satisfy your requirements!

TF: me too. When you pay $1K for ONE handgun, then you realize it's time to stand down, to a degree.

I was in Dallas today,,,,taking my wife in for her Baylor cancer check-up.
I have to drive thru some of the most violent ni**er areas to get there.
I felt like a mean boar hog with it's hair up driving and stopping for stop-lights, in this black ghetto area.
My right hand was closed around my Kel-Tec P-40, .40SW Caliber 9 shot.
You cannot help to see that there are NO, again NO markets or popular chain stores here!!!!
IT is almost like a war zone, I had to patrol many, many years ago!!!
Why, you ask,,,,well it is the same as MOGADISHU, years earlier as you saw on TV.

I am a calm, cool, low heartbeat, confirmed MACV-SOG Captain, 1961-65 experienced removal expert of enemies of the USA, and I felt a SURGE of same old,buried cause and feelings as I drove thru this human wasteland.
All nerve endings were on fire.
My sick wife with cancer beside me, riding shotgun, with eyes wide open.
Alarms were clanging as I traversed this 4 miles of driving thru this human cesspool.
Takes about 15 minutes of shallow breathing to get thru this ni**er cesspool.
I expect many feel the same, but do not have the "intestinal fortitude" to call a spade a spade.
THE ANSWER?
How does one remove all the low-lifes living and breeding in this area,,,I ASK YOU???

I strongly agree with the sentiment and the 2nd Amendment. However, I don't think quoting the newsletter of the Moonie cult is the best way to go about it.
