Yup, Guns Are Bad..

14 year old boy/brother/hero stops a man breaking in his home.


The people who oppose people owning guns say this never happens and are in denial. This young man was forced to make a tough decision and made it correctly and I might add, accurately!!

Chicago Versus Afghanistan?

When George Bush was President we heard daily about the deaths of soldiers killed in the war.  Now we hear nothing. But one city, Chicago, stands out. Why?  Because people in Chicago, at least the law abiding ones, can not have a gun.  What good is gun control if the criminals don't listen?

Chicago residents face a murder rate that, thus far this year, is higher than the number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan.

The war zone-like statistics are not new. As WBEZ reports, while some 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan since 2001, more than 5,000 people have been killed by gun fire in Chicago during that time, based on Department of Defense and FBI data.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times', more Chicago residents -- 228 -- have been killed so far this year in the city than the number of U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan - 144 -- over the same period.

Back In NJ AGAIN.

Squirrel hunter shooting with BB gun faces jail and fines.

I mean you can't make this stuff up!!   NJ needs a little sense of reality.  Squirrels are just rats with tails, vermin. I have similar issues with squirrels getting into both of my houses. They cause thousand and thousands of dollars in damage to wood and electric lines.

NJ is completely crazy. There may be no saving them now!

NJ Continues To Nanny, Now BB Guns

You are hereby convicted to 10 years in prison and a $150,000 fine for the possession of a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun.

When I was a kid, 8 to 15, I can't tell you how many days I sat out back of my parents yard shooting my Daisy BB rifle. I crank on the lever and fire. 100's of times a day. My dad use to hang empty Miller High Life cans from our apple tree and I would get them all swinging and eventually rip them in half. I would buy the cartons of BB's at Kmart.  I think a 1000 BB's were a dollar. The gun would hold darn near 500 in the barrel. In October, when the apples would fall, the bees would be all over the dead apples on the ground. I would set up a lawn chair about 15 feet away and pick off bees for hours after school. I credit my marksman like ability with that BB gun to turning me into the Expert Rifle and Pistol medal winner in the Coast Guard.
Today I live in a community, not far from where I grew up, that you can not shoot a BB gun. My kids can shoot in the garage, if the door is closed at targets, but not outside in the yard. Things have changed.

I don't know the reason, other than anti gun fears, that NJ would ever pass such a stupid and idiotic law.
But it is NJ and they have joined NY and California as the highest taxes and lowest freedom States in the Union.

Whatever happened to COMMON Sense?
