Come Take Our Guns

After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California to finish what they started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River. Remember, we had a 2 million man army and war ships in other localities, so why did they not invade?
After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer….they know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them.
1. The world’s largest army … America ‘s hunters!
2. A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and arrived at a striking conclusion:
3. There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin .
4. Allow me to restate that number.
5. Over the last several months, Wisconsin ’s hunters became the eighth largest army in the world.
6. More men under arms than in Iran .
7. More than in France and Germany combined.
8. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.
9. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan ‘s 700,000 hunters,
10. All of whom have now returned home.
11. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that…
12. The hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. The number of Hunters in the state of Texas would be the largest standing army in the world by it’s self.
13. The point?
14. America will forever be safe from foreign & ( domestic ) invasion with that kind of home-grown firepower.
15. Hunting — it’s not just a way to fill the freezer. It’s a matter of national security.
16. That’s why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us disarmed.
17. Food for thought when next we consider gun control.

Mass Shootings and Meth

For those of you that have been living in a box we offer this information from the U.S. Library of Medicine.

Methamphetamine – meth for short – is a very addictive stimulant drug. It is a powder that can be made into a pill or a shiny rock (called a crystal). The powder can be eaten or snorted up the nose. It can also be mixed with liquid and injected into your body with a needle. Crystal meth is smoked in a small glass pipe.

Meth at first causes a rush of good feelings, but then users feel edgy, overly excited, angry, or afraid. Meth use can quickly lead to addiction. It causes medical problems including

  • Making your body temperature so high that you pass out
  • Severe itching
  • “Meth mouth” – broken teeth and dry mouth
  • Thinking and emotional problems
Meth was invented by the Germans in the 1920’s.

The Wehrmacht used Pervitin in the millions of tablets per day. It was a key factor in the Blitzkrieg’s success. This was not unusual for the times. Germany did not ban any drug. It was marketed in Germany for practically everything from weight loss to depression.

Yes, even in America.

Researchers today are rediscovering that humans have a natural aversion to killing other humans. This was well known to the Nazis. The Nazis also found out that Methamphetamine use removes this aversity. Pervitin use made the German Army very effective in killing the enemy. It also allowed them to cheerfully shoot and hang civilians. Meth was very popular in Concentration Camps.

To say that America has a problem with Meth is an understatement. We also have a problem with mass shootings. Can this be linked to meth use. Please note that the U.S. Library of Medicine blandly lists “Thinking and emotional problems” as a side effect to Meth use.

But you might say that your kid doesn’t use meth. Do they have ADD. Attention Deficit Disorder is treated with Ritalin, which is “medical” meth.

The case I’m making is that if you take young people with emotional or mental problems and they use Methamphetamine or you give them Ritalin, the link to violent behavior such as mass shootings becomes clear.

What say you?
