Plaques will commemorate the careers of Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods at this year’s Memorial Day observance, 2 p.m. May 27 at the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial, 6905 La Jolla Scenic Drive South.

Assigned to a security detail in Benghazi, Libya, Doherty, of Encinitas, and Woods, of Imperial Beach, were killed in action when they served above and beyond the call of duty in a terrorist attack that began on Sept. 11, 2012.

RINO FUDD Alert: Professor Edward J Erler

NC Gun Guy offers new video of a Professor Edward J.Erler who seems blissfully unaware of the current state of United States gun laws even as he lectures an audience at the Hillsdale College Kirby Center on the nature and purpose of the 2nd Amendment.

While his rhetoric does not exactly move into the malignant fraud of Professor Michael Bellesiles (at least not in this lecture) he will definitely never be confused with a modern day pulpit pounding Patrick Henry screaming “Give me Liberty or give me Death!”

He is, in fact, exactly the kind of cryto covert passive aggressive Milquetoast RINO Republican FUDD who has brought this Republic to its knees under the century old Progressive assault he purports to oppose.

While he claims to support the 2nd Amendment his narcoleptic language and thought gently nudge the audience into a morass of administrative state edicts and restrictions.

First comes the astounding claim fully automatic weapons have been illegal since the 1930s.

A.(Weapons were taxed, but legal–click here)
B.(13 year old Katelyn Francis shoots full auto at a 3 gun match CLICK HERE)

In addition, the good Doctor also seems to believe the venerable WWII M1 Carbine should be classified as an “assault rifle” ( a role for which it was never designed), is remarkably comfortable with the notion weapons should be banned from any areas Leviathan Government deems “sensitive”, is dismissive of the role of the local Sheriff as a Constitutional bulwark, and finally, is far too comfortable with the idea of banning entire categories of weapons because they are somehow unusual or dangerous.

The number of times Dr. Erler uses the term “assault rifle” in the first few minutes of his talk would make the most devoted acolyte’s head spin. He is completely unaware of the NSSF list of rifle industry wide terms to include Modern Sport Rifle (MSR), Modular Component Rifle (MCR), Sport Utility Rifle (SUR) or Modular Precision Rifle (MPR).

So clearly this is not a man who should be given a leadership role defending the Bill of Rights.

The guy is not a lawyer and he is certainly not familiar with the contemporary gun rights environment.

In fact, his only credentials appear to be an academic PhD in Political Science.

Has this fine Academic EVER shot NRA Bullseye? Joined IDPA? IPSC? Gone to Camp Perry? Plinked for rats at the local dump? Gone hunting? Shot trap or skeet? Cowboy Action Shooting? Civil War Reenactment? World War II Reenactment? Is he familiar with Kim Rhode? John Ross? Thunder Ranch? Jeff Cooper?

Can he name any activity outside the Ivory Tower of Academia directly involved with active use of a firearm?

If all these activities and ideas and people are alien to him he has no place at the top of the 2nd Amendment food chain.

We, the people, do not need any more Ann Coulters or Karl Roves or Heritage Foundations or Cato Institutes or even Hillsdale Colleges controlling the narrative or dialogue about who will best lead us out of the wilderness of crippling Progressive Politics.

Enough already.

Return, sir, to your cloistered halls and leave the dirty work to those of us who suffer most severely from the oppression of totalitarian Federalism.

Will Your Congregation Stand Up October 2nd?

Pulpit Freedom Sunday–October 2nd 2011–will your congregation stand up and be counted?

After a half century of fraudulent IRS regulation American Churches seek to restore Constitutional Liberty to the church pulpit.

Of the many injuries Welfare State Advocate Lyndon Baines Johnson inflicted on the American Psyche none has been more overlooked and under-publicized than the 1954 Johnson Amendment stifling a Ministers ability to speak freely on the topics of the day.

Pulpit Initiative explained:

Introductory excerpt here:

The Pulpit Initiative is designed to allow pastors to speak freely from their pulpits without fear of censorship or control by the IRS. The Johnson Amendment was passed by Congress in 1954 as an amendment to section 501(c)(3) of the federal tax code. The Johnson Amendment states that entities who are exempt from federal income tax cannot:

Participate in, or intervene in (including the publishing or distributing of statements), any political campaign on behalf of – or in opposition to – any candidate for public office.

Since its passage in 1954, the Johnson Amendment has been applied to prohibit what a pastor says from the pulpit concerning candidates who are running for elective office. This means that under current IRS regulations, a pastor cannot say anything from the pulpit that may constitute support for – or opposition to – a political candidate.

It has not always been this way. For almost the first 200 years of America’s history, pastors frequently spoke out with great boldness about the great moral and social issues of the day and about the candidates running for office.

Sin·gu·lar·i·ty: a point or region of infinite mass density at which space and time are infinitely distorted by gravitational forces and held to be the final state of matter as it falls into a black hole

Long ago and far away I had an opportunity to talk to an old man, a survivor of WWII and
a member of the Axis Conscript Army from one of those little roll over countries of Eastern Europe – you know, Poland, Romania, Hungary et.al.

I asked him what he made of his experience in the 20th Century?

He answered in one word: “Amazement”.

To clarify he said: “One day you wake up and believe you will do pretty much what you have always done the way you have always done it. On that day you learn you will never again do any of the things you have always done in any of the ways you have always done them.”

The phrase did not exist when he spoke of his experience in World War Twice, but he clearly described the reality of SOCIETAL SINGULARITY- the change, in an instant, from a world you comprehend perfectly to a world unrecognizable in every aspect.

The War On Food

Remember the complete shock and novelty of a SWAT Food raid on a small group of women and children in rural Ohio back in 2008?

Apparently things have not improved in the interim. ObamaNation has now created a National Rural Council by Executive Order.

Excerpt:

On June 9, 2011, President Obama issued a sweeping executive order for a White House Rural Council that purports to exert broad municipal powers over the food, fiber, and energy production of Rural American. Where’s the Line, America to how much power the president can amass by executive order?

The good news? She is sorry. The bad news? She is sorry. The sorry feral offspring of Generation Damned. Also lucky. There was a time private property owners had a strict “you loot, we shoot” policy. Expect more of this in the near recent future.

Dear Vancouver, I am sorry. Dear City of Vancouver and all its residents, Yes, this is me in the picture above. Yes, this is me in the 1:30-1:33 mark of this youtube video. I am not proud of my actions and have made a visit to the Vancouver Police Department, over the weekend to turn myself in.  This blog will serve as a public apology to those that I have offended with my actions, to clarify certain issues, and to address a few peripheral issues that I take as a concern.

Rigged Elon Gun Poll

Grass Roots North Carolina offers a quick education on how a poll about concealed carry in restaurants and bars can be subtly rigged to produce the desired outcome.

Think about it. What image comes to mind if the question asked is phrased:

“[Do you agree/disagree with] permitting people to carry handguns in restaurants and bars?”

Howsomeever, the legislation presented is solely to allow LICENSED CONCEALED CARRY HANDGUN OWNERS TO CARRY in restaurants and bars. Big difference!

Pretty tricky, eh?

Philosophical differences aside, the choice of phrase can make quite a difference, certainly for the general public.

Elon Poll Flawed
A poll released last week by Elon University* purports to show little public support for expanding North Carolina’s existing concealed handgun law into parks and restaurants, as proposed under House Bill 111. However, the misleading and inaccurate phrasing of poll questions suggests that the researchers either haven’t read HB 111, or are woefully ignorant of North Carolina gun laws.

INACCURATELY PHRASED QUESTIONS:

“[Do you agree/disagree with] permitting people to carry handguns in restaurants and bars.”

Facts:

* No pending bill would allow “people”-meaning anyone-to carry handguns in restaurants and bars. Rather, HB-111 is strictly limited to allowing concealed handgun permit holders to do so.
* Individuals covered by HB 111 have been verified by their sheriff as law-abiding citizens who have proven they are trained in the law and proficient with their weapons.
* These people have passed criminal background checks and had their fingerprints cleared by the FBI.
* The sheriff has verified they are not alcoholics or substance abusers, and in the case of veterans, were honorably discharged.
* This class of people – who number approximately 2% of North Carolinians – have proven, over the past 16 years, to be responsible, prudent, safe, and overwhelming law-abiding.
* A similar question skewed results on “people” carrying concealed handguns in parks when, in reality, the parks provision too would apply only to concealed handgun permit-holders.

OMITTED INFORMATION

* The question on restaurants omits at least two major qualifying conditions: That those carrying handguns are prohibited from consuming any alcohol, and that individual restaurants have the ability to ban the carry of handguns on their premises.

SAMPLING BIAS

* Although the Elon poll found that 42.4% of respondents owned firearms, earlier polling of North Carolina residents found a far higher gun ownership rate of 56%,** suggesting a sampling bias against lawful gun ownership.
