Ted Nugent Unplugged

Unless you have not been around any media at all, you have heard what the media has said about Ted Nugent's comments about either being Dead or in jail if Obama is re-elected. I came across this today in the World Net Daily news. I also saw his approximately 25 minute interview that he held at the NRA convention that was conveniently sound bit for our consumption by most of the media to say that he threatened our President directly. 

Well, hearing it come from Ted directly, it doesn't sound the way the media portrayed it, but please don't believe me.  Just listen for yourself and make your own determination. If you agree with what he said, don't pass up the opportunity to pass this along to your friends, family and even the enemies of our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

I will finish with this by saying if you care at all about the future of America, and care about your freedoms that you still have left, you better get off your ass and do something, or expect this country to go the way of Stalin's Russia or Hitler's Nazi Germany did.

The whole reason that this administration is shaking in their boots is because this man speaks the truth, and he speaks it directly.  I may not agree with any man on all topics, but I must say that he has some valid arguments and he is definitely NOT afraid to express his first amendment rights!

Attacking The Second Amendment

For much of my life I have respected the opinions of Mr. Bill Cosby. Overall, this man is the personification of a great American man. But all good people do make mistakes. This is one of them that I need to point out publicly for one reason only. Because he is such a public person, many people tend to agree with him just because of who he is, rather than rationally looking at facts. 

First, I must preface this with the fact that Mr. Cosby did not join in on the race baiting as others have done. I thank you and the writer for that Mr. Cosby. As you well know, it is counter productive to the messages I have always seen you portray in your public life. 

Mr. Cosby, the comment you made in the news get lots of attention for obvious reasons. You are a man of sensibilities and you are good natured. You have brought much joy to many millions of Americans including myself over the years. You are, in my opinion, an American icon. But in this opinion about “the gun,” I believe you are wrong.

I have listened to all the media pundits, and their opinions regarding the Trayvon Martin killing. I have yet to say I have formulated any opinions, until all of the facts are uncovered in a court of law, not in the court of public opinions. 

The reporter said that you Mr. Cosby, stated that in this case, it was "the gun" that was the reason that Trayvon was killed. I do agree, a gun killed Trayvon, but not for the same reason as is being projected in the article or by Mr. Cosby, if that is what he really said.

According to the reporter, it is implied that George Zimmerman was looking to confront Trayvon. In the leaked police report, it said that George Zimmerman was on his way back to his vehicle. I think that to suggest that when someone is following someone, that they are looking to confront them, is suggesting some evil intent. This is just my opinion in this particular case.

Is It Becoming Illegal To Defend Yourself?

I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of the of lack of common sense that seems rampant in our justice system and in the news reporting in the last 30 or so years. 

I just read an article about an 80 year old man in Chicago that shot a burglar in his own home and was arrested. I know that this happens all the time too. Where I live, it is a given that even while you may be in the right to defend your home, you are at least going to go to jail for questioning if not worse. This brings up a point that I think a lot of people see like I do 

Why is it that if you are defending your home, you are going to be arrested, and then have to prove your innocence? This is ridiculous. To add insult to injury, this man had his gun confiscated too. 

I can understand if the man had killed the intruder, it would at least require some investigation just to make sure that the shooter and the victim had no other ties that might make it look like it could have actually been a murder disguised as a burglary. But in this case, the 80 year old man shot the intruder in the leg. I do not know if he called the police or someone else did, because the article failed to mention who called the police. But I suspect that the old man probably did. 

We may or may not find out the real facts of the case since the mainstream media is in the business of shock journalism, more than accurate reporting nowadays.

I can say this with a clear conscious. If you break into my home, my first priority is to try to get away and call in law enforcement. But if I cannot leave, I am going to defend myself with anything that I have available to do it with. I know that it sounds good for some to say, "I'll blow that guy into the wall". But my reality is that it is always better to avoid confrontation if at all possible. That leaves me free to avoid possible law enforcement problems to begin with.

But here is another scenario. What if the guy starts taking my stuff and is trying to leave before the cops get there? In this case, You or I would be justified to take this person into custody (citizens arrest)with whatever means it may require. But this is shaky ground because now, law enforcement is liable to arrest you anyway, because these punks always seem to find an attorney that will counter sue you. 

If the person was to decide to drop whatever he was stealing when I was confronting them and take off, I would probably not pursue them for one obvious reason. That would not be considered defensive actions by any court. It would be much better to get as good a description of them as possible, in hopes that they will be caught and convicted.

This brings us full circle again. If I was a burglar, and I knew that the home I was breaking into was possibly being defended by deadly force, and that the police and justice system stood behind THE VICTIM, not me, I would probably not take the chance. But the way things are now, most areas that are not defended because of restrictive firearms laws, the crime rates are soaring. 

I have also heard that in England, that it is against the law to confront an intruder in your own home now. I have no proof of that though, so I would welcome anyone that is from there to please enlighten me about that. The reason I bring it up is because if there is no real threat of death or injury to a intruder, they would gladly beat up or kill elderly people, women, and defenseless people to get what they want. Besides, they probably carry weapons, and are not afraid of breaking the law in the first place. 

A couple of years ago I received an e-mail from a friend that tells the story about gun control. I have not fact checked this, but I do believe it to be true from all that I hear from gun advocates. So I advise you to do some of your own research to verify these stats.

These figures, were compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show: 

The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU. 

It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbors, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain. 

The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU. 

It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offenses than recorded in Germany and France. 

But it is the naming of "Britain" as the most violent country in the EU that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents. 

In the UK, there are 2,034 offenses per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677. 

Number of violent crimes study 2009- (But at least they don't have those darn guns) sarcastically spoken. 

1. UK 1,158,957 
2. Austria 133,546 
3. South Africa 732,121 
4. Sweden 108,004 
5. Belgium 107,885 
6. Canada 306,559 
7. Finland 41,664 
8. Netherlands 111,888
9. Luxembourg 3,233 
10. France 324,765 

The U.S. has a violence rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, Canada 935, Australia 92 and South Africa 1,609. 

Most of these countries have strict gun control or have fully banned firearms for law abiding citizens. According to this data, guns save lives everyday. You just don't hear about it in the news!

Besides, If you take away peoples guns, they will use whatever weapon advantage that they can have, to give themselves the edge in winning the fight. History has proven that fact over and over again.
