WORD THAT SAXBY CHAMBLISS will not run for the U.S. Senate next year is the first thing he’s done right. Let him go.

HILLARY SHOUTS IT’S her job “to figure out what happened and to…prevent it from ever happening again.” That’s the standard Obama excuse for failure. Just let failure happen, then after the fact, claim the job is to not let it happen again. Tell that to four dead Americans.

OBAMA PLANS TO “weigh debt options.” When you owe money, there is only one option; anything else is a con game. You pay back the money, period.

SO YOU MIGHT NEED your guns to fight off the government? Well, when armored personnel carriers with machine guns rumble down your street, good luck with that.

IN A LIFE-THREATENING situation when seconds count and help is only minutes away, being armed is your best defense.

CALLING AN AR-15 an “assault rifle” is the same as putting racing stripes, mag wheels, ground effects, and glass packs on a ’75 Ford Pinto and calling it a race car.

SEN. JOHN MCCAIN wants to allow illegal immigrants to get away with breaking U.S. laws because McCain wants Republicans to get more Latino votes. Obviously, McCain doesn’t care about our laws being enforced, just about getting votes.

SEVERAL STATES, e.g., Idaho, Oregon and Texas, have said they will refuse to enforce illegal laws being pushed by Obama. Where are Georgia’s leaders? Are they afraid to stand up to the federal attack on constitutional state’s rights?

WHEN I SAW THE PHOTO of the folks waiting in line for the gun show, I did not think of hunters and patriots. Instead I saw hundreds of potential psychos arming themselves against an imaginary Armageddon and innocent schoolchildren.

I AM CONSTANTLY AMAZED people actually apply to work for Augusta’s dysfunctional city government!

NOBODY IN THEIR right mind needs an assault rifle. They should be for the military only. A pistol for protection or a rifle for hunting is all a normal person needs, period. Assault weapons need to be outlawed, but I am afraid it will never happen.

"... when armored personnel carriers with machine guns

That betrays as an alarming ignorance of unconventional warfare as that which first the British, then the Russians -- with overwhelming armour and air superiority, and then the US with all that and an asymmetrical advantage in night operations and a one-sided force for drone warfare confidently went into Afghanistan.

Has not turned out well in any of the cases when fighting peasants with seventh century leadership and turn of the century armament.

"NOBODY IN THEIR right mind needs an assault rifle."

Just for once I'd like these slippery crusaders to clearly state in solid technical language what they would outlaw WITHOUT any reference to cosmetics.

Under the lapsed ban, my Model 1878 .450/577 Martini-Henry single shot rifle qualified.

If this is the best R&R's that can be printed then all I have to say is "Lord have mercy". This is just re-hash of re-hash. Guns, Obama, politics.....isn't there anything else going on in Augusta that is interesting?

How about Saxby? I am not familiar with him or his politics but I know that he has a chicken franchise. Is his chicken good? More important (at least for me) does he sell chicken gizzards?

Yeah, in psychological terms, it's called "projection." YOU shouldn't buy a weapon before you see someone about that.

When the armored personel

When the armored personel carriers rumble down your street you are very obedient. You only attack those who are not prepared in their weakest places, over and over and over. Armed citizens will outnumber any foreign or malevolent domestic force by tens of millions. Just as the writers of the Constitution knew.

The Gun Salesman of the Year Award goes to President Obama

President Obama has single-handedly rebuilt the Gun Industry in only 3 months.

SPECIAL NOTE TO AMMO RELOADERS
ALL Remington, Winchester, CCI & Federal primers are going to ammo first. Remember the ammo is going to the Federal Government even ahead of DOD. There are no extra's for reloading purposes and it could be 6-9 months before things get caught up.

Why does the Social Security Administration and other Federal Agencies have a sudden need for 100's of Millions of rounds of ammunition in the last 3 months?

So, strangely it would seem, the Ammunition Buyer of the Year Award also goes to President Obama.

They have to exit the armored personel carriers every now and then. Those on the outside can take care of business when those on the inside come out to take care of business.

People don't actually apply to work for Augusta city government. They actually apply for a job. City Administrator Fred (What, me worry?) Russell doesn't ask for much in return for your paycheck.

Good Morning "Unseen Snake In Grass" America.

Nope, I do not fear armored personnel carriers with machine guns rumble down your street.
No way can I fathom any military commander obeying and giving an unlawful order to the serving men/women of America to kill thier Fathers, Mothers, Brothers, Sisters, Sons, Daughters, Aunts, Uncles, Classmates and Friends.

What I do fear is the order from the unseen snake in the grass, the Dictator King SMNCICBHO Hammer & Sickle Man given to his brainwashed Communist followers of DHS or FEMA to use his now authorized drones to kill us armed lawful gun bearing American citizens to protect his throne. He knows he has a revolution in the making.

This is the first time in American history that all of it's FREEDOMS has been removed from Birth, Eating, Living and even Death.

Don't you just LOVE when a liberal makes the point that there should be fewer restrictions on gun ownership while TRYING to do the opposite?

How did all that braggadocio
Unpublished

How did all that braggadocio and bluster work out in 1861-65? Let's see, Atlanta got burnt down, Vicksburg got burnt down, Richmond got bunt down, 400,000 of the rebels were slaughtered on their home turf and millions of dollars in "property" was set free. None of the "properties" decendants have yet to achieve the presidency yet though.

Yup! Ol' judge Pettigrew of South Carolina had it right when asked if he thought it was a good idea for SC to form it's own nation. He opined that it SC was far too small for nationhood and yet way to large to be a lunatic assylum.

The best most will come up with is "those scary looking guns".

For the umpteeth time; I could walk into any crowded venue with a semi-automatic shotgun (5 shot capacity mag) and take out more people in a shorter periodof time than a guy with a semi-auto rifle and thirty rounds.

"potential psychos arming

"potential psychos arming themselves against an imaginary Armageddon"

The Los Angeles riots were not imaginary. The rioting, looting, and murdering in the aftermath of Katrina was not imaginary.

"A pistol for protection........is all a normal person needs"

In a riot situation I don't intend to let them get that close.

"He knows he has a revolution in the making."

Which probably explains why the Homeland Security, FEMA, and the IRS are buying up all of the ammunition in preparation for the declaration of martial law. They've been doing that since those "potential terrorists", you know, the TEA Party, held their first of many peaceful rallies to ask for some sanity in government spending.

Ah! Were it only so that the same regulations needed to own and operate an automobile in place for gun ownership. That would eliminate the speciousness of such a foolish arguement.
