Just a few examples of the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Click on this address and read on........
I am not against foreigners entering this country, as long as they do it legally! People in Mexico can immigrate to the USA, but most do not want to put up the money or time to do so. The bleeding heart without a clue Liberals would have you believe that they are entitled to a better way of life and therefore the borders should be open. There are so many things wrong with that line of thinking that they cannot all be possibly addressed here. They can't afford, financially, to go through the legal process? Well then I say that is there lot in life. If you can't afford it, you can't afford it, simple as that. I would love to live in a bigger house, drive newer vehicles, travel more, and do more for my family, but you know what? I can't afford it! Does that mean I should be able to do these things anyway? No. For now, until I can afford it, that is my lot in life. Theodore Roosevelt said it the best-
“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
We have several companies and people that we like and enjoy doing business with and admire their products and / or services. (You can visit the Partners page on this website for a sampling.
However, there are several companies, regardless of the quality of their products or services, that we will not purchase from or support because of their financial support to gun control. We like to talk the talk and walk the walk here, and we feel it would be hypocritical of us to support those who are trying to take away our freedom and destroy the 2nd Amendment! For example, that is why you will not EVER see PayPal on this website. Will it hurt us? Maybe. Better to stand up for what you believe in though. This will be an evolving and increasing list for sure, as we find out who is supporting the crazed ideology of gun control and the people at the forefront of same, i.e., obama, michael bloomberg, etc. (lower case intentional) So without further ado, here is the list (so far), and our hope is that it would decrease and not increase-
1-Levis (lifelong wearer no more)
4- Bank of America
5- Ikea (instructions suck and they always short you on parts anyway)
The latest mass shooting, this one in Oregon, is yet another example of why gun free zones are ridiculous and absolutely do not work. We all remember the mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, where a young man opened fire on innocent people at a movie theater who showed up for the premiere of "The Dark Knight Rises", another installment in the Batman series. What most people do not know, and what will NEVER be reported by the liberal media, is that there were SEVEN theaters showing the movie that night, and at least two of them were extremely close, location wise, to the residence of the shooter. However, he went out of his way to go to a theater that had a posted no guns allowed, i.e., a "gun free zone." The other theaters had no such policy and carrying firearms into these theaters in a legal fashion was allowed. He obviously felt that by going to one of the theaters close to his home would have presented opposition to his heinous act, so he went to a theater where he would be THE ONLY ONE WITH A GUN!! Why is it 'the islamic socialist who is trying to destroy the country" and the rest of his ilk do not understand that guns save lives?
Perhaps, if this college in Oregon allowed legal campus carry, then maybe someone in the same room as the shooter, or maybe nearby, that had a legally owned firearm, could have possibly prevented the amount of bloodshed. I'm not saying if a law abiding citizen with a firearm had intervened that no one would have been killed, but I do believe the carnage would have been much less. And who knows?- maybe if this campus had allowed legal carry, then this shooter may have thought twice about shooting people who actually might shoot back.
Yes, couple more reasons to detest the islamic socialist who is trying to destroy our country, the United States of America! Remember when obama said this- "I want to be absolutely clear...I believe in people's right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won't take your handgun away. There are common-sense gun safety laws that I believe in, but I am not going to take your guns away." He said this while trying to get elected. This was not your run of the mill campaign promise, this was an out and out lie to the people of America.
He also was not in favor of same sex marriage, but when the Supreme Court handed down their misguided and monumental ruling allowing same sex marriage, obama lit up the White House in a rainbow of colors to support the decision and obviously show his approval. When I saw that I was both furious and sad.
After the Carter Administration thankfully came to a close, I felt that Jimmy Carter would go down in history as the worst president ever. However, obama has gotten him off the hook. If I live to be two hundred years old, without a shadow of doubt, obama, the islamic socialist who is trying to destroy the country, will most certainly go down in history not only as the worst president in history, but as a horrible and despicable human being.
I always recommend to men and women alike that it is a good idea to acquire your CCW- Concealed Carry Weapons Permit. It is not difficult or that costly- when I got mine I did the one day class at the Marksman on 29th street. Class was $60, and the fee to the State is $60. After taking the class and submitting everything the Marksman gives you, along with your $60, it generally takes anywhere from 3-6 weeks to get your CCW card in the mail. Although not required in the State of Arizona, I feel that having your CCW is worthwhile for two reasons- one, it makes buying a gun SO much easier! You still have to fill out the same 4473 form, but when you are done with that, you merely present your Drivers License and CCW, we make copies, and you are on your way! If you don't have a CCW, you fill out the form, then we have to call the Feds, and you may or may not be approved right there on the spot. If you are not approved, it goes into a delay status, and the Feds will call us back once they have had time to do further review, which is a bunch of crap since they have all the data they need right there at their fingertips. Just another way to make things difficult for gun owners and I feel is a reflection of our horrible Administration. War veteran friend of mine bought a gun, we called it in, he was approved. Couple weeks later, bought another gun, called it in, was delayed. Why?? Nothing changed in his life the previous two weeks, and this guy is squeaky clean. We heard from the Feds the next day that he was approved but it was a major inconvenience, especially for him. And they never tell you why a person is not approved or why they are approved after a delay. If you are not approved and it goes into delay status, by law we can then sell you the gun after three business days have elapsed. It's all such nonsense and here's why- if you come to me to buy a gun and you don't have a CCW we have to call it in. And you could get delayed, even if you're Mother Theresa. Now, if you come to me with a CCW, I can, by law, sell you the gun right there on the spot, and maybe you have a criminal record, maybe you were recently arrested for domestic abuse, maybe you just came from knocking off a liquor store! But, by golly, you have a CCW, so you get a gun. And they are good for five years! There is no consistency there at all. The second reason I think it's a good idea to get a CCW is the schooling, or education, that you are required to get. As far as I am concerned, there is no such thing as too much education when it comes to guns and gun laws. So make things easier on yourself when buying a gun, and get a little education in the process, and get yourself a CCW.
