Oh No! They’ve Got a Gun

Back when I was managing a Radio Shack, my employee came up to me all excited.  “That guy has a gun”, she says all out of breath.  I see that he’s sporting a .308 semi-automatic on his hip.  “What does he want?, I ask her.

“A cell phone.”

“Great! Sell him one.”

Recently I noticed a gentleman packing while shopping in Albertson’s grocery and there was a man with a 9 mm in front of me at Wal Mart.

No big deal.

Law Enforcement is a thankless job and I respect those who saddle up each day to serve and protect us all. But they’re people just like us.  Let’s play a little Good Cop, Bad Cop.

Here are some other folks walking around armed.

I guess that went well.  Here is one that was better.

Officer Jim was pretty cool.  But he was also armed to the teeth.  The exact reason why the Second Amendment exists to have you armed to an equal level to prevent a Police State.

The next video was made by a group that was out to protect some animals allegedly being shot by the gun club.  The responding officer is talking out of the side of his lip and is owned by the lawyer filming him.  You can bet this officer is armed to the teeth while he confronted these women “armed” with a video camera.

So can a police officer arrest you if you do not surrender your identification?  READ THIS.

IN TEXAS
Sec. 38.02. FAILURE TO IDENTIFY. (a) A person commits an offense if he intentionally refuses to give his name, residence address, or date of birth to a peace officer who has lawfully arrested the person and requested the information.
Notice the officer walks away. Texas law is explicit. You have to be arrested on probable cause that you have committed a crime before police can demand you produce identification. You can be detained for questioning but detention is not arrest. If one of the questions asked is “Who are you?” you are well within your rights in Texas to refuse to answer.

Even after arrest you have the right to remain silent so the officer in this video had no other thing to do but walk away.

Any attempt of a police officer to interpret law and threaten you with arrest to force you to comply with any action that deprives you of your rights under the Constitution is “Oppression Under the Color of Badge (or Law or Office depending on the State) and can themselves be arrested.

IN NEVADA NRS 197-200

I’m a big fan of the X-Files and in one of the episodes Fox and Scully confront a crowd of people and Scully says “You can’t be walking around in public with a shotgun.”  I always think that is one big blooper because you can walk around armed in public.

MY STORY

I was on a “gun date” up on Lake Mead Blvd.  We were hosing some cans and bottles with my AR-15 when I noticed Metro cruise by.  I thought to myself  “Good”.

Then he drove by a second time and a third.  I told the lady that the date was over and packed up.  I was driving a Datsun 280Z back then so I broke the weapon open and placed it  without a magazine in the back.  I then puto the ammo up front on the passenger side floor.

When I came out of the dirt and back on to Lake Mead there was Metro behind me.  When I turned off of the main drag to go home he flashed his lights and siren.  I pulled over.

The officer came out with his weapon drawn.  In a loud clear voice I said, “I have a weapon in the trunk. My hand are on the steering wheel.”

“I know that God Dammit!” he yelled back.

In short order we were bent over with our hands on the hood of the cruiser.  The officer retrieved my insurance card and registration from my car himself.

It went like this:

“Ever been arrested?

“No sir”

“You look familiar”.

“Yes sir.  Do you remember making a kid give back a bike he stole yesterday?”

“Yes.”

“I was the PR yesterday. You did a good job yesterday and you’re doing to good job today”

He then ran the serial numbers on my weapons. I had a 357 pistol as well.  When the came back clean the officer lightened up a little.

I asked him why he pulled me over and he said he’d run my plates and the registration date and expiration date was the same day.

“Obviously a computer error,” he said.

So I asked, “If it was an obvious error why did you pull me over?”

He said, “The Rodney King verdict will be out soon and we were briefed at stand up to look for people with high powered weapons.”

“Can I ask you a question?, he said.  “Why do you own a AR-15?’

I said, “Three reasons.  One, the Air Force taught me how to shoot one. Two, the ammo is cheap to shoot and three, because the Constitution says I can”.

“Sounds good to me”, he said and we went our separate ways.

 

Here Are the Rights You Have When Interacting With a

Police Officer in One Detailed Infographic

Obama Starves the Second Admendment to Death

At least he thinks he has.  The little town of Herculaneum, Missouri has a population of 3468.  It was founded on July 27, 1819.  The Doe Run Smelter is the industry of this hamlet and has been in business since 1892.  The Obama Administration has had the EPA write regulations to attack this and only this one business.

Since 2008, well… no…since 1892 the evil Doe Run Smelting Plant has been destroying the environment and poisoning people.  This is according to a 2008 law suit filed by Jack and Leslie Warden.  The Wardens lived in  Herculaneum for 16 years and then moved out six years ago when they accepted a buy out from Doe Run to settle the suit.

 

LEAD

It”s all about lead.  The Doe Run Smelting plant has been smelting lead from ore for 121 years and on 31 December, 2013 they will close their door forever and the 145 employees will be out of work.  This in response to the more than $15 Billion in fines and clean up costs levied against the plant.  Doe Run Resources Corporation said it would cost an additional $65 million dollars to convert the plant from hot smelting to the cold smelting process and bring the plant up to code.  Doe Run also announced that the company will try to shift the out of work smelters to other jobs within the company.  Most notably the water treatment plant in Herculaneum.

So as of the first of the year, America will no longer produce lead from ore.  Other plants around the country have quietly closed or switched to precious metals that have a higher profit margin.  But Doe Run pressed on until the Obama EPA increased the fines by a factor of ten.  For this one remaining plant.

HURRAY FOR THE PLANET!

Right?  Wrong.  We will now have to export our ore to someone else to smelt.  Someone like…China.  You know, Communist China who is the world’s biggest producer of lead pollution and non-signer of the Kyoto Accords.  Oh yeah, that China.

That means that lead production for the U.S. has become an international commerce issue and will fall into federal control.  If your keeping score this is what happen to our domestic production of steel decades ago.

BUT WHY LEAD?

Because along with steel, lead is a strategic metal.  All that lead goes into the manufacture of batteries and bullets.

  • Batteries that all those looney Home Preppers use to free themselves from the national grid.
  • Bullets for all those guns that the pesky Second Amendment says we get to keep.

Yes Virginia, that gun you own makes a really good club without the bullets.

THIS IS WHY.

Remember a couple of months ago when all the federal agencies were making massive ammo purchases?  Makes sense now.  Without a domestic source of ammunition,  private gun ownership is a mute point.  That’s why Obama is twerking in his underwear upstairs at the White House.

"SCREW YOU AND YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT! WHOOP! WHOOP!"
“SCREW YOU AND YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT! WHOOP! WHOOP!”

NOT SO FAST BARRY…

Our wise Founding Fathers didn’t think of ammunition ownerships when they signed off on the Second Amendment.  Back in the day everyone made their own bullets.    So it’s back to the basics.  Make your own bullets.  Can you see a black market in lead? Can you see lead ownership becoming illegal like old light bulbs.

What if lead becomes illegal to save the planet?

  • “Drop that flashlight and back away.”
  • All hybrid cars get to have the galactically expensive “Lead Free” batteries.
  • Possession of bullets with the intent to sell. [ed note: No, wait, that’s illegal now isn’t it?]

Here is a partial list of other household items that may contain lead.
− Food and liquids stored in lead crystal or lead-glazed pottery or porcelain
− Folk remedies that contain lead, such as “greta” and “azarcon” used to treat an upset stomach
− Garden hoses – in brass couplings or in PVC
− Imported candy containing tamarind or chili
− Wheel weights
− Computers; circuit boards (young kids should not take electronics apart)
− Old or imported cans with soldered seams
− Antique toys (painted wagons, wood toys, lead soldiers)
− Some foil and colored gift wrap and ribbons
− Decorations on glass drinking mugs

The Obama Administration has stated that the closing of the plant was a “business decision” and the government had nothing to do with it.

Is this the change you voted for?
