While the mice are away the cat will play? The Royal Canadian Mounted Police used the flooding and evacuation as a convenient excuse to round up legally owned, private citizens’ guns (hat-tip The Blaze) in Alberta, Canada where recent high water and flooding forced owners from their properties.
Homes under water
One business owner was ticked off and rightly so.
“Now what they’re doing is looking for firearms and ammunition. How do they have the right to do that? What does that have to do with the disaster? …This is martial law. What has happened to our country?”
Reminds me of Hurricane Katrina in September of 2005 where New Orleans PD and the US Army National Guard, along with US Marshals confiscated all civilian-held firearms. It took the NRA & the Second Amendment Foundation filing suit some 7 months later to get the City of New Orleans even to admit they had seized weapons.
And what about Watertown, MASS? After the Boston Marathon bombings heavily armed goon squads went door to door yanking US citizens out of their homes at gun point and openly confiscated lawfully owned firearms from its residents.
Searching for bombers is one thing; door to door harassment and gun confiscation from citizen is quite another whether it occurs here or Canada.
This is why we have to stand firm every time, every issue and every excuse they use to treat US citizens like outlaws and confiscate lawfully owned weapons. This would be a good time to join the NRA. They’re fighting for our 2nd Amendments rights.

This bizarre federal government procurement includes various federal agencies amassing unprecedented amounts of guns and ammunition.
Govt agencies are stockpiling massive amounts of guns and ammunition. WHY?
The Dept of Homeland Security
The Social Security Admin
The National Weather Service
WTF ?? I don’t know but I can only guess and it doesn’t end well. One point six (1.6) BILLION rounds -enough to kill every American 5 times over and the next installment adds another 21 Million rounds. This has all occurred over the last 10 months.
According to Paul Joseph Watson at infowars.com, and numerous other sources:
“While Americans are being browbeaten with rhetoric about the necessity to give up semi-automatic firearms in the name of preventing school shootings, the federal government is arming itself to the teeth with both ammunition and guns.”
I know I’ve been on this gun control/2nd Amendment jag for a long time, but it’s getting out of control. It’s time folks to get off your butts! Write, call, fax and email your Congresspeople and ask WTF? I’m making it as easy for you as possible. Use any of the above information, but DO IT!
Hawaii’s Right to Carry law is ludicrous in it’s obvious absurdity. Its justification and ultimate approval is left entirely to the Chief of Police of the respective counties and according to NRA’s gun laws by State,
“We have been advised that the County Police Departments (of the State of Hawaii) will not approve a Concealed Carry license for any reason.“
Right to Carry, or CCW (carrying a concealed weapon), as it is known in gun rights parlance refers to the practice of carrying a handgun or other weapon in public in a concealed manner, either on one’s person or in close proximity.
Forty-nine states allow citizens to carry concealed weapons, Illinois being the only exception. Illinois has until May 2013 to draft a CCW law after its ban on carrying concealed weapons was overturned in December by a federal appeals court and declared unconstitutional. The judge in that case wrote in the majority opinion:
“The Supreme Court has decided that the 2nd Amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside.”
Illinois’ ban was overturned with the help of the Second Amendment Foundation and 2 individuals who filed suit. Sounds like there needs to be a test cast against Hawaii’s virtual ban on Concealed Carry.
Is every single thing he says a fracking lie? I’ll let you be the judge.
“Yes, in fact up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time.” (Obama in response to New Republic Magazine’s question, “had he ever fired a gun?”).
And the White House released a photo just yesterday (Saturday) dated Aug. 4, 2012 showing Obama shooting clay targets on the range at Camp David.
But the National Rifle Association has a problem with this, saying “one picture does not erase a lifetime of supporting every gun ban and every gun-control scheme imaginable”. A top official with the National Skeet Shooting Association suggests if him shoot skeet is true, Obama is certainly a novice. Some skeptics reason that it can’t be skeet or trap shooting with the weapon nearly level to the ground.
The White House wants you to know, he’s one of us.
“In skeet shooting, you’re either shooting high or you’re shooting low. This is nothing but pandering to sportsmen and hunters.”
Pander? Our President? Uh yeah maybe just a little. No, in fact that’s his stock in trade. He panders to blacks, women, the homeless, teachers, Muslims, gays, Hispanics, Wall Street, big business, big Pharma, UNIONS!, illegal aliens, environmentalists and so forth. Anyone for a few votes.

This is right from Ann Barnhardt. LIke she, I recommend everyone cross-post, forward & tweet this letter from former Navy SEAL, Matt Bracken.
“If boxcars and detention camps are to be in America’s future, then you, Mr. Security Agent, will have to disarm them the hard way first. Not Piers Morgan, not Michael Moore, not Rosie O’Donnell, not Dianne Feinstein, not Chuck Schumer. YOU.”
Pass this around, and call your mostly yellow-bellied swine of an excuse for Congressmen or women(start here with John Boehner, 202-225-0600) and let them know you will not sit down for the disarming of American. Tell them you will not accept any, not any, none of their “public safety” excuses. The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting or protection, it is the necessity of a free state and shall not be infringed, impinged or ‘comprehensively overhauled’. This means NO national registration requirements, NO banning of assault rifles or ammunition and NO confiscation of guns that were legal in 2012!
Most Americans do not know that during hurricane Katrina the government in the form of police and National Guard went armed, house to house forcing people from their homes and confiscated all firearms.
Please click here to vote in the USA Today poll: Yes or No. Does the Second Amendment give individuals the right to bear arms? You bet your bootie it does and you better be willing to stand up for that right or lose it.
As I learned on Hawaii Free Press recently, a local group, Hawaii Concealed Carry, was formed this year to promote the safe and responsible bearing of firearms, working to assist in the restoration and exercise of their fundamental right to keep and bear arms. Hawaii residents are encouraged to apply to their local County Police departments for a permit to carry a firearm, openly or concealed, for the purpose of protecting yourself and your family. See pages 2 &3 of the Request Guide for the application requirements. Other states need to do likewise. Contact the National Rifle Association for more information.
Did you see the rioting in the streets in London earlier this week? You think this only happens in Greece, Ireland and London, England? Or that it can’t happen here in America? You’re wrong. Things are coming unglued. People who have been promised and given so much by the government for so long turn ugly when the government finally says,
“You know what? We can’t keep doing this. We’re out of money. The revenues coming in no longer cover what we have promised to give you. You are going to have pay and benefit cuts, you must contribute to your pensions and health care, and you can’t retire at 55. Tuition in state schools will go up. To receive welfare benefits you may have to show up and do volunteer or community work -pick up trash, man after school programs, drive the elderly to medical appointments.”
Etc, etc, etc. It’s called chickens coming home to roost. But it ain’t gonna be pretty.
I can't stand it anymore! What is becoming of our country, our basic liberties?
After two careers (18 yrs as a dental hygienist, then 20 as a Realtor) I have to stand up and try to effect some change. I want to make it easier for you to do the same. We have to Get Off Our Butts and spread the word. There are more of us than they think, but we have to make ourselves known before it's too late.
