Lost Wedding and Engagement Rings

Not a good weekend.  Went to visit my Daughter at school for family weekend. . .

Halfway through the day my wife noticed her rings were gone. . .  .

Hope they are in the house someplace and we will find them but my fear is it fell off outside on campus at Roger Williams someplace. .  ..

Nothing I can do now but hope. . .

Update - We did find them a week later in the laundry. .  . thank God someone was watching over us.

When will we wake up?

Was disappointed today to read a post from a friend in fear of what is going on in our nation and blaming Trump.  Her fear was they would go back to outlawing interracial marriage. . .

Folks, Stop falling for the fake news.  Look at the data and turn off the TV.  Obama did a ton of damage to race relations, but we can and are fixing that.  Thanks to Trump black unemployment is at a low we have not seen in years.  The hate groups that you see in the news are from the left, not the right – Antif and Black lives are leftist group’s folks.  No one is going to go back to separate but equal or any other outdated racial laws.  No one is going to overturn Roe V. Wade either so get over it.

Then I had a friend say the parties switched after the civil war so she could blame the right for the KKK and such.  Sorry, no they didn’t.  The KKK was started by the Dems, and some of their favorite Senators were high ranking members. . .You want proof you need look no further than any Dem controlled city – Chicago, Boston, Detroit, etc. . . and you can see the Dems still have their slaves, but now they keep they keep them in place with forced dependence on the state to live.  You want your welfare check do what we say.  You want a good education and to break out of poverty you better get out of those cities.

You want to fix this stop letting the pols divide us and stop playing the race card.  We had 8 years under Obama when all we heard about was race.  Anything against Obama was race-based and if you did not like him you were racist.  No, I am not racist (I have friends of all races and religions) but I am getting sick of being called one because I don’t agree with socialists.

Now folks complain about the government power.  Again thank Obama.  He spent the last 8 years ruling by executive order and building up the power of the office of President way beyond what it should be.  Sure Bush II started it, but Obama cranked things up to 11.  Both were wrong to do it.
And now we have folks openly calling to turn our nation socialist.  Even as we watch it fail AGAIN in Venezuela.  Socialism has never worked ANYWHERE.  Stop thinking it will work if we just try it one more time. . . . get an education, learn some history, and admit that too good to be true is what it is and move on.

Then we move on to open borders.  We have illegals killing folks, taking our tax money in welfare they are not owed, and even getting tax returns. . . WTF?  Add to that these nice open borders are only making it harder to deal with the drug issues facing our nation.  You will never stop drugs with the drug war, but Open Borders is just insane.  There are terrorists who will use our open borders against us folks.  They already do. . . this can be seen by the training camp found recently where they were teaching kids to attack schools.  . . . ya, news media dropped that one quick.

Now look at gun deaths . . . actually down by almost a full percent, but the news folks ignore that.  Overall they have been going down for over 20 years now but the media wants you to think they are going up. . . Why?

Then I look around, the folks I see full of hate are not the gun owners.

You should be afraid of those who would disarm you.  Ask why they want you to be helpless?

Gun owners are not the danger or the racists the news media portrays to push a political agenda.  After each of these mass shootings (in gun free zones) it has been gun owners who come forward to fix things.  It is gun owners who offered to train folks after the Pulse attack so LGBT folks would not have to live in fear.  It is gun owners who have offered to train folks at churches to keep them safe.  It is gun folks who continue to offer solutions that are ignored.

Look at the data.  We did not have this problem before the gun grabbers and the politically correct BS got so popular.  The more gun control we have passed the more shootings we have had. . . .

Wake up folks.  The left is not helping anyone.  They are the problem, not the solution.

Rest in Peace Gunny. . . .

Damn it we lost a good one over the weekend. . .

I know a few folks that met R. Lee and every one of them said he was one of the nicest folks you could meet.  I never had the chance myself. . .  but I loved his shows and movies.  He did a lot to promote our rights and was an all-around good guy. . .  we need more like him.

Thanks for all you did Gunny!

You Tube Shooting

Since all this attack does is prove the failure of gun control you can expect it will be out of the news very quickly. . . it does not support the right agenda for it to be "news".

What it does though shows that even in Calf with all the insane gun laws they have it did NOTHING to stop a shooter.

Time to wake up, tell the kids to shut up adults are talking, and end gun control and the BS that does nothing but make it more dangerous for law-abiding folks.

Florida School Shooting

OK, it has been a few weeks and let's look at the facts:
·         Shooter used an AR-15
·         Cops/Sheriffs deputy’s waited outside knowing there was shooting and let it happen
·         School refused to report him so they would get grant money
·         Sheriff worked with the school to cover up crime/threats so they got money
·         Multiple complaints about him but no restraining order
·         Previous attempts to commit him turned down
·         FBI was warned and did not act

So please tell me how another gun law will make ANY difference in a case like this??? The laws in place would have stopped him if ANYONE DID THEIR F’ING JOB.

Yesterday there was another school attack and the school cop did his job.  Gunman (with a pistol) dead and only two wounded. . .  yet they want more gun free zones and gun bans.

To top it off now someone is paying to send a bunch of these kids around the nation so they can stand in front of the cameras and read their script calling for gun control and disarming law-abiding citizens.  To make it worse they are pushing these kids as experts.

How does any of this make these kids experts?  Think about it.  So they were in the school and were lucky and go out.  Calling them an expert is insane.  I have walked by construction sites, am I a building expert?  I have had a check-up, am I a doctor?  Was in the office when my kids had fillings done, am I a dentist????  Same DAMN THING.

So let's stop giving in to the bullshit and saying these kids know one damn thing about the law, guns, or our Constitutional rights.  They totally ignore the failures of the very people who are supposed to keep them safe and call for more attacks on our rights.  ENOUGH.  

Someone needs to explain to them we are sorry for what happened, but they are not experts on shit and please sit down and shut up.  Enough is enough.

Time for the adults who actually know something about mental illness and the drugs these kids have ALL been on to have a long discussion on what to do.  And time to end the BS of gun control that has cost so many lives.

Shooting Updates

The more that comes out about the FLA shooting the sicker and sicker I get.

I cannot believe some of the stuff. . . it started with . . .  well, lets list it out:

  1. Shooter was reported to FBI who did nothing
  2. Local Sherif went to his house something like 39 times and did nothing to take his guns
  3. School suspended and I think expelled him and still nothing
  4. Reports he was abusive to folks, no restraining orders so he still passes background check
  5. School resource officer stays outside and lets shooter keep killing for 4-6 minutes
  6. Now we here there may have been THREE more deputies outside that let it happen
  7. Suddenly kids have money and plan to go to FLA capital and DC to protest guns
  8. CNN does town hall but only allows scripted questions and answers - nope no agenda there folks. . . .
This is all nuts.  I am not sure even the tinfoil hat folks could have made this up.  I don't know how much more they can have screwed up to make this look like they planned it for F sake. . . .

But before you get me a tinfoil hat no, I don't think they planned this.  I don't think they are that smart, and I do think the incompetence level is high enough for it.

Now we have the left screaming about arming teachers. . .

Why?  All your gun control over the last 20 or so years have not worked.  No one is saying teachers have to be armed, all we want is an end to gun free zones (shooters sure don't care about them) and let any teacher, parent or staff that want to carry have that option.  

Then they tell you no teacher wants a gun. . . BULL SHIT.  I know teachers that have guns and would carry.  I also bet that coach that paid with his life to save a few kids would have loved to have a gun (he is supposed to be a gun owner) to defend those kids.

And then it hit me. . . . . if we got rid of gun free zones, armed teachers (UT has armed them for about 10 years now guess what no shootings) and cut back on gun-control and the shootings stop or are ended sooner what happens?  Kids are saved, but the left has all its gun-control shown up as the lie that it is and EVERYONE would see it. . . They can't have that. . . .

So we will now have to deal with lies like never before to push for gun control.  They are finding money to send these kids all over with a great script to push gun control.  They are silencing any of the kids that do not fit or stick to their scripts and CNN and such are going along with it.  Where is this money coming from?  And how does the fact you got lucky and lived through this suddenly make you an expert on gun laws, guns, and our rights?  

Folks last week Congress wanted to force Tide to change their product so these same kids would not eat laundry soap. . . . this week we want to let them decide if we have the right to bear arms or not?

FLA aftermath.

The more I watch the news the more I get disgusted with us.

17 kids were killed in FLA due to gun control, the failure of the FBI and local authorities to do their job when they KNEW about this kid and had been given tips about him.  He was tied up in a bunch of crap the DYS should have flagged but they didn’t.  The FBI had reports he wanted to be a school shooter but they let it go.

Now the useful idiots of the anti-gun crowd are going to parade out the kids to have them cry and whine and push for gun laws that would not have done a damn thing. 

Seems the lead kid may also be tied to the FBI through a parent, no conflict of interested there right folks?

We don’t let kids make legal decisions for a reason folks.  These are children who don’t know the law, don’t know what laws are already on the books, and who don’t get how the systems work.  In short exactly what the anti-rights folks want. 

Remember it was exactly this kind of BS after 9/11 that got us all the surveillance of citizens and the Patriot act that we can’t now get rid of.  There is no place for emotions in making laws.  Emotional laws are not fair and legal laws, they are one group using the power of government to hammer another group and they seldom get you what you think.

I am not one to go for the tinfoil hat but the way things look it is almost as if they wanted this shooting so they could have another push for gun control.  Too many people had been tipped off and did nothing.  But never give them credit for a plan when incompetence also explains what happened.

Doesn’t matter, it happened and now those that would make us slaves will push for FEELING driven law and once again ignore the facts.  They don’t care that we have 17 dead kids due to gun-control.  They have not disarmed us yet so they will keep pushing no matter how many lives it costs.

And if you really want to understand how nuts these folks are remember this – these same folks that want only the government to have guns are the ones that last week were telling us Trump is pure evil and the next Hitler so he needs to be impeached. .  . Now you what Trump to have all the guns???? WTF folks???

So pray for us, pray for the kids, and hold the line on any new laws until the emotions have settled.  Then we need to look at the real root causes here – medication, mental illness, and the failure to report it so he could be helped and this could all have been prevented.

So Now what?

After two days of listing to the news on the Florida school shooting I have a few takeaways:

1 – most anti-gun folks have no clue about guns, and react based on feelings on things.  They don’t know what laws are on the books and want more anyway

2 – Sounds like this kid had issues and if anyone had actually reported him for abuse of girls as is claimed he would have ended up without a gun as a prohibited person. . . the laws exist, folks, we need to use them not make new ones

3 – Folks are willing to give up Due Process rather easily.  They don’t care as long as it is someone else’s right being taken with no defense or courts involved

But on the bright side, it looks like the pro-rights folks did not hesitate on this and got right into the fight.  I don’t see anything happening in DC over this as they know it will get them voted out of office right quick.  And Trump is not even talking about new laws so he should support our rights.
No the fear now is how will the state abuse our rights in the name of Safety?  It may be time that we need to push for a national gun law that will take the right to control guns away from the states.  I don’t know if this can be done but since our National Constitution calls out our rights I think that should be the bases for the new law.  Spell it out that the states are not above the limits of the Constitution.

We will see. 

The worst part is folks would rather argue to strip us of our rights than look for the real issues here and address them.  Stripping folks of their rights is easy, fixing the real problem is not so they ignore that. . . .

Time will tell.  Overall I think you will see nothing at the Fed level but maybe a slowdown of the dismantling of federal gun control.  It is the state level that we need to fear and work on.  They will do untold damage to our rights if we let them.

FLA School Shooting

So once more into the breach folks.

Yet again an evil person has shot up a gun free zone. . . . AGAIN!

And with the total failure of gun control and gun free zones, you would think they would fix this right?


The same bunch of fools who keep telling us that gun free zones will keep us safe despite shooting after shooting in them are once again after our guns.  They will yell and scream how we need to be defenseless to be safe. . .ya right how has that worked out so far?

The most recent shooter has ties to White Supremacists groups they say.  He is also said to be another registered Democrat (seems many shooters are).  Also, I have seen comments that he may have been reading up on some middle eastern groups.

I am sure more will come out as time goes by.  I a glad he lived so we can examine what went wrong in his head.  Because that is the only way to stop the next one, figure out the mental illness behind it.

It sickens me that he is getting the fame he wants, and this will only encourage the next one.  It also sickens me that we will not arm teachers and adults at the schools to prevent the next one.  There was a guard at this school. . . he was also a coach and all he could do is play meatshield - which he did to save as many as he could at the cost of his own life. . . . Personally, I would rather he had been armed and able to shoot back.

What he is not:
Worried it is against the law to bring a gun in a gun-free zone
Worried that it is against the law to kill people
concerned that these folks have done nothing to warrant this attack
Worried about any gun-control laws

Get it yet? 

Gun control has failed yet again and yet again we are burying the cost of this failure.  Time to make DC wake up, time to make the state WAKE UP and end the madness of gun control. 

Gun control kills folks.
