Video: Real Gunfighter Lance Thomas Talks About Defending His Store in LA

This Justice Files episode featured a successful watch dealer in a West LA who armed up in the mid nineties when he saw other shop keepers in his neighborhood become victims of violent armed robberies. He bought some guns and learned how to use them. And as thief after thief would soon find out, he became a force to be reckoned with.

“Lance Thomas was totally justified in everything that he did,” said Detective Lee Kingsford, who investigated the last shooting case.  “All of the suspects had extensive criminal records – they knew what they were doing – they just didn’t know who they were doing it against…”

MO Sheriffs Appeal to Sheriffs Across the US “to Rise to the Defense and Aid of all Americans” Against Attacks on Their 2nd Amendment Rights

Charles M. Heiss, the Johnson County sheriff

Two Missouri sheriffs are publicly opposing Obama’s efforts to restrict the rights of Americans to bear arms.

JOHNSON COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

Charles M. Heiss, the Johnson County sheriff, and Steve Cox, the Livingston County sheriff, expressed their concerns in letters to President Barack Obama.

“I am writing to you to express my concern with the tone of your administration with respect to the Second Amendment Rights of American citizens,” the letters state. “It appears to me and many Americans that there is a genuine desire on the part of your administration to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law abiding American citizens in the interest of curbing gun violence in our nation.”

The Second Amendment is central to a free society, the sheriffs said.

“Any attempt to restrict these Second Amendment rights through executive order is unconstitutional and tantamount to an all out assault on the United States Constitution. Just as the Fourth Amendment to the constitution guarantees our citizens the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, the Second Amendment guarantees each of us the right to keep and bear arms to protect ourselves from anyone who would seek to cause us harm. This includes the federal Government,” the letter states.

The two men said history shows “that when a society does not possess the ability to defend itself it becomes ripe for victimization by criminals, and ripe for government oppression.”

The sheriffs said they are asking other sheriffs in Missouri and across the United States “to rise to the defense and aid of all Americans should the federal government attempt to enact any legislation, or executive order that impedes, erodes, or otherwise diminishes their constitutional right to keep and bear arms. I will use all means legal to meet this solemn and sacred responsibility.”

Here’s Heiss’ entire letter, via  the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office website:

Dear Mr. President,

My name is Charles M. Heiss and I am the Sheriff of Johnson County, Missouri.  I have held this office since January 1, 1997.  I am writing to you to express my concern with the tone of your administration with respect to the Second Amendment Rights of American citizens.  It appears to me and many Americans that there is a genuine desire on the part of your administration to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law abiding American citizens in the interest of curbing gun violence in our nation.

Throughout our nations history the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights has served as the very foundation of our free society.  The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution has long guaranteed our citizens the right to keep and bear arms and is central to our ability to live in a free society.  Any attempt to restrict these Second Amendment rights through executive order is unconstitutional and tantamount to an all out assault on the United States Constitution.  Just as the Fourth Amendment to the constitution guarantees our citizens the right to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable search and seizure, the Second Amendment guarantees each of us the right to keep and bear arms to protect ourselves from anyone who would seek to cause us harm.  This includes the federal Government.

World history has shown us that when a society does not possess the ability to defend itself it becomes ripe for victimization by criminals, and ripe for government oppression.  One need not look too far in today’s world to see glaring examples of defenseless people being brutalized by rogue regimes and dictators. Syria, North Korea, and Mali are just a few examples of this type of oppression.Mexico is a stark reminder of a society overrun with criminal element in the form of Drug Cartels.

As the duly elected Sheriff of Johnson County, Missouri, it is my sworn duty to protect and defend the Constitutions of theUnited States of America, and the State of Missouri against all enemies both foreign and domestic. This means I not only have the duty to protect my constituents from incidents of crime, but I also have a duty and responsibility to protect and preserve the individual rights and liberties afforded and guaranteed to every citizen by our constitutions.  This, Mr. President is a duty I fully understand, appreciate, and will carry out with great vigor and conviction.  I will most certainly urge my fellow Sheriffs in the State of Missouriand across this great nation to rise to the defense and aid of all Americans should the federal government attempt to enact any legislation, or executive order that impedes, erodes, or otherwise diminishes their constitutional right to keep and bear arms.  I will use all means legal to meet this solemn and sacred responsibility.

Respectfully,

Charles M. Heiss

Sheriff Johnson County,Missouri.

Meanwhile in New York……Democrat: Releasing That Document Showing We Actually Do Want to Confiscate Guns Would “Dampen the Enthusiasm of Compromise”

In the video clip (seen below), McLaughlin is prepared to discuss a list of original proposals from the Democrats regarding gun control.  The list, much in the same vein that Governor Cuomo himself had discussed, actually proposed the confiscation of guns and clips

This is essentially a Democrat wish list for trampling the Second Amendment.  Here is the video…

Piers Morgan’s Massive Hypocrisy

I rarely watch CNN and I sure as hell don’t watch the treacherous, phone-hacking,  tabloid plagiarist, Piers Morgan. Lately, watching YouTube clips of his hysterical anti-gun antics has been hard to avoid, though, as he hectors conservative guest after  guest, chiding them, insulting them and talking over them, because demagogue that he is,  he understands that allowing the enemy to get their point across means death to his political argument. Better to interrupt and yammer on about tanks. The political strawman. What would left wing hacks do without it?

What fun Dana Loesch would have had if she had been privy to this information the other night, when Piers ridiculed her suggestion that the New York man who was viciously attacked by a gang of 7 might have defended himself with a gun had New York’s strict gun laws not been in place.

Via The Daily Caller:

In 2004 Morgan penned an op-ed for the Evening Standard headlined “I can’t be liberal on burglars,” in which he said he said a series of home invasions and robberies at his home made him wish for a gun. Britain, which had banned all guns, had seen a rash of break-in burglaries, one of which took the life of financier John Monckton.

If Monckton “had killed one of those burglars while defending himself … then he would now be facing a jail sentence for manslaughter or even murder,” Morgan wrote. “No part of my liberalism allows me to deem this fair.”

“I am now so liberal on most things that my army-officer brother likes to refer to me as a ‘wet, pinko, cheese-eating surrender monkey,’” Morgan wrote. “I’m antiwar, don’t like foxhunting, feel threatened by ID cards, and think cannabis should be decriminalised.”

Heads up there for the next conservative who goes on his show, (not that I recommend it.) The next time he claims to be knowledgeable about guns because of his army officer brother (he’s actually done this), respond with a giggle, “oh, the one who called you a ‘wet, pinko, cheese-eating surrender monkey?”  Just to knock him off his game, a little.
I wonder if that was before or after he resigned in disgrace from The London Daily Mirror for publishing fraudulent pictures of British soldiers abusing prisoners in Iraq. Given that the Regiment’s Brigadier said the pictures severely damaged the reputation of the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment (QLR), and a former regiment commander of the QLR said the pictures actually put lives in danger, serving as a “recruiting poster” for al-Qaeda – it’s a wonder Piers’ brother didn’t have worse things to say about him. He got off easy with ‘wet, pinko, cheese-eating surrender monkey.’
But listen to  Piers as he argues that violence is sometimes necessary and excusable if it’s to protect oneself  and one’s property.

“I wouldn’t shoot anyone because, like most people in this country, I’m not licensed to carry a gun,” he insisted. “But if I woke up to find a thug in my house at 2am, stealing my hard-earned things, and posing a clear and present threat to my wellbeing and perhaps that of my children, then I wouldn’t hesitate to grab the hardest thing I could find and defend myself.”

“And if I killed a burglar in that situation, I would expect the law to be on my side, not the despicable little toerag defiling my life.”

Morgan applauded Sir John Stevens, then the commissioner of London’s Metropolitan Police, “for urging the law to better empower householders to defend themselves properly” because “for an elderly woman living on her own a burglary, violent or otherwise, must be a liferuining experience.”

It almost sounded like he would shoot someone breaking into his home – if guns were legal.
Who else would Piers Morgan shoot if he owned a gun? Oh, after he was fired from the Daily Mirror, he described for The Daily Mail  what he would do to his professional enemies, including Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson, writer A.A. Gill and editor Ian Hislop if he owned a fully automatic MACHINE GUN.

Obama Picks a Target and Freezes it: Permanent Campaign Re-Election Machine to Target NRA

bam4

David Jackson, USA TODAY

Via Ben Shapiro, Big Government:

The Obama administration puzzled many observers by leaving its campaign infrastructure largely in place in the aftermath of President Obama’s re-election win. Now we know why. According to Stephanie Cutter, President Obama’s former deputy campaign manager on Ed Schultz’s MSNBC program:

 President Obama’s network across this country, grassroots individuals, who organize, volunteered with their time to get the president reelected are much more powerful than the NRA lobby. And I think that you can expect to see that network activated, very soon. And for good reason.

Cutter’s words should frighten Americans accustomed to the usual ins-and-outs of politics. Unlike prior presidents, who leveraged their campaign into power, then got down to the business of governing, Obama is running a permanent campaign intended to destroy his political opposition completely.

Brian Hughes of The Washington Examiner reported that Obama campaign manager Jim Messina got things rolling early Thursday morning. He sent emails to millions of supporters urging them to “stand with President Obama” on gun control, and later,  Biden previewed the campaign-style blitz the White House is getting ready to launch.

“We’re going to take it to the American people,” Biden told a gathering of U.S. mayors Thursday. “We’re going to go around the country making our case and we’re going to let the voices, the voices of the American people be heard.”

***

Obama for America is set to meet Sunday with supporters gathering in Washington for the president’s inauguration and will continue working to shift the organization’s focus from electing a president to pushing a legislative agenda.

Still, some questioned whether the grassroots organization can help usher gun control measures through a Congress that has repeatedly rejected such restrictions over the last two decades.

“The president has always been more successful selling himself than his policies,” said Frank Donatelli, who was President Reagan’s political director. “They have a big hill to climb. Most views on this issue are very well-known.”

The online petition Messina launched Thursday sets the stage for a major clash between two of the most influential organizations in politics. The Obama campaign compiled millions of email addresses during Obama’s two presidential runs. Meanwhile, the National Rifle Association, the nation’s most powerful gun rights lobby, boasts more than 4 million members.

The Divider in Chief strikes again. He must love conflict because that’s all he’s caused since he was elected. And his left-wing Patchouli smelling drones are going to have a hard time convincing red blooded Americans they should go along with their master’s anti-gun designs.

John Nolte of Big Journalism reported Thursday:

According the latest Gallup survey, which was taken after the Sandy Hook murders and Wayne LaPierre’s press conference, the NRA, despite being demonized 24/7 in the media, enjoys a favorability rating of 54%. Today, according to Gallup, Obama’s approval rating sits at 53%.

Moreover, only 38% of those polls have an unfavorable opinion of the NRA. Obama’s disapproval rating sits three points higher at 41%.

Part of the reason the White House, Democrats, and the corrupt media are losing their battle to marginalize and destroy the political power of the NRA, might have to do with the fact that a new CNN poll released today shows that an overwhelming majority of the America people agree with the NRA’s proposal to put armed guards in schools, 54% to 45%.

After Obama and his repulsive minions are through demagoguing the issue, the NRA’s position will be even stronger. And deploying innocent little tots as a substitute for substantive arguments is probably not going to have the hoped for effect, either.

That doesn’t mean Obama won’t put extreme pressure on Reid to force unpopular legislation through the Senate despite strong opposition. As we saw with Obamacare’s passage, Obama doesn’t much care what most Americans think. But obviously, he’ll have a tougher road with a Republican Congress and moderate Dems from red districts in the Senate to deal with.

Rush made this observation on his show, yesterday:

President Obama today is taking action that a majority of Americans disagree with.  He’s going down a road a majority of people disagree with.  He knows it.  The question is, why?  Why is Barack Obama literally trying to push people to snap?  Why is he doing this?  It’s as though in some way he’s attacking the very sanity of people in this country.  Why is he doing this?  Why is he deliberately making people so upset?  What is driving him?

A lifelong antipathy toward the Constitution?
