Obama Just Banned 1,000,000 Guns

From the desk of Rand Paul:

Dear fellow Patriot,

Nearly 1 million American rifles.

Banned by a stroke of Barack Obama’s pen.

In a move unprecedented in American history, the Obama Administration quietly banned the re-importation of nearly one million American made M1 Garand and Carbine rifles.

The M1 Garand, developed in the late 1930’s, carried the United States through World War II seeing action in every major battle.

General Patton at the time called the M1 Garand “the greatest battle implement ever devised.”

The rifle is largely credited with giving American soldiers the advantage and securing victory for the allies.

During the Korean War, nearly one million of these rifles were brought to South Korea and left with the South Korean government afterward.

Now, South Korea wants to give American gun collectors the chance to get their hands on this unique piece of history.

A piece of American history that Barack Obama would like to see go down the memory hole.

That’s why I want as many Americans as possible to put themselves on record opposing this gun ban by signing the Official Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Will you please join me?



After World War II, the United States government sent millions of these rifles overseas to our allies and friends.

Over the past 50 years, many of the countries we lent them to returned them to America to be bought and sold by firearms collectors.

This is nothing new.

Make no mistake; these rifles were made in America, by Americans, for Americans, to defend freedom on foreign shores.

As a part of our history, they are greatly sought after by American shooters and collectors.

But according to Hillary Clinton’s State Department there is a danger they might “fall into the wrong hands.”

That they might, possibly, one day be used in a crime.

No mention of the hundreds of thousands of gun owners deprived of the opportunity to own an integral part of American history.

The State Department’s outrageous claims are nothing more than a thinly veiled ploy to distract from the real issue:

President Obama’s deep seated hatred for gun rights.

While his gun-grabbing base is giddy with praise at this back-door gun ban, law-abiding citizens across the United States are crying foul.

Let me be clear: at no time in U.S. history has the ownership of this firearm -- or any part of this firearm -- been illegal, restricted or banned.

Americans have collected World War II M1 Garand and Carbine rifles for decades.

Now they are sold through the Civilian Marksmanship Program.

You can even purchase a newly manufactured model from Springfield Armory that was made just a month or two ago.

And the M1 Garand’s caliber or capacity is no more dangerous than the millions of modern firearms owned by Americans across the country today.

As you can see, there is absolutely no justification for this unconstitutional gun ban.



This is just the latest in a series of anti-gun schemes from the Obama Administration:
*** A new so-called “Assaults Weapon Ban" -- targeting ALL semi-automatic rifles and shotguns -- which, unlike the Clinton ban, would NEVER expire;

*** An outright BAN on “high capacity” magazines -- banning the sale and manufacture of magazines holding more than just a handful of rounds;

*** A National Concealed Carry “Standard” -- designed to make it even more difficult for law-abiding citizens to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families from assault;

*** Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Catch-All Gun Control Scheme” -- to create a national “cannot buy registry,” allowing citizens to be stripped of their Second Amendment rights on a Justice Department whim, effectively banning all private gun sales.

That’s why it is essential that Americans like you and I take a stand against the M1 Garand gun ban!

It has been common practice since the end of World War II to re-import these American made rifles from the foreign allies they were lent to during the war.

But the Obama Administration departs radically from the American tradition.

In fact, on top of banning American citizens from owning these historic firearms, Obama’s State Department is arranging for the destruction of nearly one million of them -- ironically, at a time of ballooning federal deficits.

It’s an outrage!

These firearms -- truly pieces of American history -- rightly belong in the hands of U.S. citizens.

That’s why I was glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is helping fight this power grab in the U.S. Senate.

Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

Do you believe that President Obama banning the re-importation of these historic firearms is an unprecedented and unconstitutional power grab?

Do you support Congress forcing President Obama to reverse his ban and save these American made rifles from destruction?

If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the Firearms Freedom Survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Rifle Ban.



And along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 to help finance this battle.

With your generous contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.

Not only that, but they’re preparing a massive program to launch the designed to force President Obama to reverse this ban.

Direct mail.  Phones.  E-mail.  Blogs.  Guest editorials.  Press conferences.  Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits.  The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy.

So please put yourself on record AGAINST Barack Obama’s Rifle Ban by signing NAGR’s Firearms Freedom Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, your help will still make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

The #1 Reason To Never Let The Liberals Have Your Weapons!

 
 

I borrowed this story from a friend on facebook, and thought it would be a great addition to this blog as I am a gun owner.


This is a true story and most people will never know it.

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.

They didn't. Why?

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…...all fighting the Germans. So, why did they
not invade?

After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and
admirals were asked that question. Their answer…...they knew that
almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them.

The world's largest army... America's hunters!

A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of
states and arrived at a striking conclusion:

Over the last several months, Wisconsin's hunters became the
eighth largest army in the world.
More men under arms than in Iran.
More than in France and Germany combined.

There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of
Wisconsin.

These men deployed to the woods of a single American state
to hunt with firearms, and no one was killed.

That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the
woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan's 700,000 hunters,
All of whom have now returned home.

Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it
literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four
states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
The point?

America will forever be safe from foreign invasion with that
kind of home-grown firepower.

Hunting -- it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a
matter of national security.

That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic, want to see us
disarmed.

Food for thought when next one considers gun control.

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
― Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle

Public Prayer May Satisfy The Flesh, But Does It Satisy The Savior?

Matthew 6:5 - 7
 
5. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
 
Jesus says you must definitely not pray as the hypocrites pray.

6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen [do]: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Liberals LIE! Here Are A Few Facts That They Lie About!

I received the following via email. Please feel free to share!

Education of the masses will be the only way to win in November!  Please pass this on.  The last point is as powerful as the first.
 
 
 

There are actually two messages here.  The first is very interesting, but the second is absolutely astounding - and explains a lot.  
 
A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.  
 
 Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:  
 
               U.S.                    65%    
 
               England              46%  
 
               Canada               42%  
 
 Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:  
 
               U.S.                     93%  
 
               England              15%  
 
               Canada               43%  
 
 Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:  
     
               U.S.                     90%  
     
               England              15%  
     
               Canada               43%

               Canada               18  
     
Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":  
     
               U.S.                    12%  
     
               England               2%  
     
               Canada               6%  
     
And now for the last statistic:  
     
  National Health Insurance?  
     
               U.S.                     NO  
     
               England             YES  
     
               Canada              YES  
     
  Check this last set of statistics!!  
     
  The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked  
  in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.  
  You know what the private business sector is a real-life business, not a  
  government job.  Here are the percentages.  
     
     
              T. Roosevelt.................... 38%  
     
              Taft.................................. 40%  
     
               Wilson ........................... 52%  
     
              Harding........................... 49%  
     
              Coolidge......................... 48%  
     
              Hoover ........................... 42%  
     
              F. Roosevelt................... 50%  
     
              Truman........................... 50%  
     
              Eisenhower................ .... 57%  
     
              Kennedy......................... 30%  
     
              Johnson.......................... 47%  
     
              Nixon.............................. 53%  
     
              Ford................................ 42%  
     
              Carter............................. 32%  
     
              Reagan........................... 56%  
     
              GH Bush......................... 51%  
     
               Clinton .......................... 39%  
     
              GW Bush........................ 55%  
     
              Obama..................... 8%  
     
     
  This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration:  
  only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!  
     
  That's right!  Only eight percent---the least, by far, of the  
  last 19 presidents!  And these people are trying to tell our big  
  corporations how to run their business?  
     
  How can the president of a major nation and society, the one  
  with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk  
  about business when he's never worked for one?  Or about jobs when he has   never really had one?  And when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff   and closest advisers?  They've spent most of their time in academia,   government and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."  They should   have been in an employment line.  
     
  Pass this on because we'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media.

The Shotgun Wedding Supper of the Lamb!



First of all, I hope you recognize the sarcasm in the title for what it is. I in no way believe that scaring people into heaven by scaring the hell out of them is even remotely related to anything Jesus Christ told us to do!
Far too many times I have seen preachers and evangelists of all denominations using scare tactics to get people to the altar. Just turn on your television on Sunday morning and I bet you hear some of it. 
I think we all know the kind of preaching that I'm talking about. The kind of preaching that can be boiled down to one phrase, and that phrase is this, 'If you don't come down to this alter tonight and get yourself saved then you'll go to hell and burn forever! Don't put it off any longer!!'
I challenge any one of you reading this message to show me IN THE BIBLE where Jesus said to do this! It ain't there. 
Before we go any further, you need to understand that fear is a tool of Satan. It is my opinion that any preacher that is using fear in his sermons is being GREATLY used by Satan. You see, in order to be saved we must repent. Repentance requires sincerity, and being sincerely scared doesn't automatically mean that you are sincerely repentant. This is one of Satan's grandest schemes. He has lured you into a false sense of security about your salvation because you scared and manipulated into making a snap decision. This is what I refer to as 'the shotgun wedding supper of the Lamb!' people are being scared into making a commitment to someone that they really don't love! It never lasts! You must fall in love before you can make a commitment, not after. Even a relationship with Jesus needs time to grow. 
Jesus told us what to do. He told us to go out and preach the GOSPEL. What does that mean, you ask. Well, let's look at what Wikipedia calls gospel:

A gospel is an account, often written, that describes the life of Jesus of Nazareth. According to the bible, the "Gospel", is also defined as the "Word" that comes from God. The First Epistle of Peter 1:25, references Isaiah 40:8. The grass withereth, the flower fadeth:but the Word of our God shall stand forever. 1 Peter 1:25...the word of the Lord endureth forever. And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

Isaiah 39:8...Good is the word... Isaiah 40:5 ...for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. Therefore, out of the mouth of God, is the good news, glad tidings, or what is also known as, the gospel. In a more general sense the term "gospel" may refer to the good news message of the New Testament. It is primarily used in reference to the four canonical gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. However, the term is also used to refer to the apocryphal gospels, the non-canonical gospels, the Jewish gospels and the gnostic gospels.

So what is the 'Good News'? That God Almighty aka Jesus Christ, loves you without end!  That we can have eternal life with the creator of all the universe, and it's REAL easy! Believe that He was who He said He was, and that he defeated death, hell, and the grave. 
See Matthew 24:14. After Jesus rose from the dead, he commanded his disciples to share the Gospel. He said, "Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creatures." See Mark 16:15. He did not say "go forth and scare the hell out of people until they repent!"
Where there is faith, fear cannot exist. Likewise where fear dwells, faith cannot be found. If someone is using even the most subtle fear tactics such as, 'you're gonna miss heaven if you ______!' , I would be very wary of all of their teachings. Fear only comes from one place! 
Please, if you are going to share the gospel with the world, just share the gospel. Do not share fear! Do not give Satan the glory. 
I realize that my message may not be popular, and you may think that I am totally wrong. That is ok. I have only shared what has been on my heart for some time. I welcome any comments or private messages at bradygvaughn@gmail.com

Thank you for reading!

If You Are On The Fence About Ron Paul, Read This!

Dear Fellow Conservative,

In this race for the Republican nomination for President, there is one very big and very real "conspiracy" that's been going on since day one.

But it's not one members of the media bother to speak about very often.

So today, I'm going to lay the facts bare.

The real conspiracy is my opponents' attempts to masquerade as conservatives when, in reality, they're anything but!

Just take a look at my campaign's "Three of a Kind" TV ad to see what I'm talking about.



And after you watch it, won't you please contribute as generously as you can to my Super Tuesday Final Push to help me run this ad in key Super Tuesday states?

I hope you will.

The truth is, right now, our nation is over $15 TRILLION in debt. 

More and more Americans are realizing that we must change course - and FAST.

But a recent study of my opponents' economic plans showed that every one would only INCREASE our federal debt!

My plan?  It does exactly what I say it will do - it enacts REAL spending cuts and puts our nation back on the path to prosperity.

But it's not just the facts about their economic plans my opponents are trying to hide.  Just consider:
***    Whether it's the $700 billion TARP bailout, traditional marriage, abortion, the Second Amendment, or taxes and spending, Mitt Romney has been on both sides of virtually every issue important to conservative voters;

***    From supporting TARP, to Cap-and-Tax, to the individual mandate central to "ObamaCare," to getting paid $1.6 million by Freddie Mac to keep the housing bubble expanding, the truth is, Newt Gingrich has a record even Barack Obama would be proud of;

***    Rick Santorum voted to DOUBLE the size of the Department of Education, give millions of taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, and even voted with Big Labor against a National Right to Work Act to end forced union dues nationwide.

Now media reports are saying Big Labor is hoping for a Barack Obama vs. Rick Santorum showdown this November. 

That way, it's a win for the union bosses regardless of the outcome!

These are hardly conservative records.



One the other hand, I've spent more than 30 years consistently advocating the Founding principles of individual liberty, free markets, sound money, and constitutional government.

The American people are realizing this fact, which is why I'm drawing crowds by the thousands at each rally I hold across the country.

It's also why I have a real shot at winning the Republican nomination because of my campaign's incredible success at picking up delegate after delegate below the radar.

And when I WIN the Republican nomination, it's going to wreck the establishment's Big Government, big spending gravy train.

But with Super Tuesday fast approaching, it's critical my campaign has the funds to turn out as many supporters of mine as possible and run TV ads like "Three of a Kind."

So can I count on you to make a generous contribution to my Super Tuesday Final Push?

I hope you will.

The truth is, I'm the only candidate who you can trust to do exactly what I say I'll do if elected President.

When I say I'm going to cut $1 TRILLION in federal spending during the first year of my Presidency and balance our budget by the third year - I mean it!

But as I mentioned, my campaign must have the resources during this last crucial push before Super Tuesday.

So please, make the most generous contribution you possibly can afford to my Super Tuesday Final Push.

Even if it's just $50, $25 - or $10 - it'd be greatly appreciated and you can be confident it'll be put to good use.

Together, you and I can Restore America NOW!


For Liberty,


Ron Paul

P.S.  The real "conspiracy" in this race for the presidency is my opponents masquerading as conservatives when, in reality, they're anything but.

The truth is, I'm the only candidate in this race you can trust to CUT spending, balance our budget, and stand up for limited constitutional government.

My campaign is feverishly trying to get the word out with our "Three of a Kind" TV ad.

Please help me run this TV ad in as many Super Tuesday states as possible by contributing to my campaign's Super Tuesday Final Push with your most generous contribution.
