No less a great mind than that of Albert Einstein once said “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. The New York Slimes is once again placing their own brand of insanity on public display. No, it’s not their use of propaganda to push their Marxists agenda, they have been amazing succe3ssful at that. No, it is their belief in Marxism at all that is insane. Oh, they couch their Marxism in terms like Liberalism, or Progressive, but the true is that it is Marxism concealed under a less obvious name.
BARRY, Ill. — The byline of Dick Metcalf, one of the country’s pre-eminent gun journalists, has gone missing. It has been removed from Guns & Ammo magazine, where his widely-read column once ran on the back page. He no longer stars on a popular television show about firearms. Gun companies have stopped flying him around the world and sending him the latest weapons to review.
Dick Metcalf was fired after a nuanced column in Guns & Ammo.
In late October, Mr. Metcalf wrote a column that the magazine titled “Let’s Talk Limits,” which debated gun laws. “The fact is,” wrote Mr. Metcalf, who has taught history at Cornell and Yale, “all constitutional rights are regulated, always have been, and need to be.”
The backlash was swift, and fierce. Readers threatened to cancel their subscriptions. Death threats poured in by email. His television program was pulled from the air.
Just days after the column appeared, Mr. Metcalf said, his editor called to tell him that two major gun manufacturers had said “in no uncertain terms” that they could no longer do business with InterMedia Outdoors, the company that publishes Guns & Ammo and co-produces his TV show, if he continued to work there. He was let go immediately.
“I’ve been vanished, disappeared,” Mr. Metcalf, 67, said in an interview last month on his gun range here, about 100 miles north of St. Louis, surrounded by snow-blanketed fields and towering grain elevators. “Now you see him. Now you don’t.”
Don’t allow yourself to be deceived here, what you are witnessing is nothing less than a propaganda campaign to make a saint out of Dick Metcalf and by so doing make demons out of those who objected to what Dick Metcalf did. The Slimes takes great care here to paint poor old Dick as a rational objective individual whose only crime was asking questions. To portray him in the light of those once hauled before the Inquisitors for heresy. In so doing, casting those who objected to what Dick wrote as radical extremists of the most dangerous kind.
The Slimes relay’s on ignorant and biased emotionalism associated with the revulsion most people feel over the inquisition to achieve this. When the truth is that Dick ignored the individual writings of America’s Founding Fathers in that most noxious article that got him fired. America’s Founding Fathers could not possibly have made themselves more crystal clear when they wrote the Second Amendment as to what their intentions were.
Benjamin Franklin: Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary
safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” (Nov 11 1755, from the Pennsylvania Assembly’s reply to
the Governor of Pennsylvania.)
Thomas Jefferson: “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither
inclined or determined to commit crimes. Such laws only make things worse for the assaulted and
better for the assassins; they serve to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man
may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” (1764 Letter and speech from T.
Jefferson quoting with approval an essay by Cesare Beccari)
John Adams: “Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self
defense.” (A defense of the Constitution of the US)
George Washington: “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the
people’s liberty teeth (and) keystone… the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable… more than
99% of them [guns] by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very
atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference [crime]. When firearms go, all goes,
we need them every hour.” (Address to 1st session of Congress)
George Mason: “To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them.” (3 Elliot,
Debates at 380)
Noah Webster: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in
almost every country in Europe.” (1787, Pamphlets on the Constitution of the US)
George Washington: “A free people ought to be armed.” (Jan 14 1790, Boston Independent
Thomas Jefferson: “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” (T. Jefferson papers,
334, C.J. Boyd, Ed. 1950)
James Madison: “Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of
other countries, whose people are afraid to trust them with arms.” (Federalist Paper #46)
The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution has absolutely nothing what-so-ever to do with hunting or sporting. It is 100 percent about an individuals right, which the US Constitution guarantees that the State cannot take away, to defend themselves, their families and their property and to quote Benjamin Franklin “their essential liberties”. It was specifically placed into the US Constitution because not one single founding father believed that Government, ANY Government was exempt from corruption or eventually becoming a tyranny given the opportunity.
George Washington called firearms, “the peoples liberty teeth”, because they represent the peoples ability to resist the governments Monopoly of Violence. Without such teeth, citizens are not citizens, but in effect, subjects, mere chattel to be used and treated in what-soever manner as those holding the reigns of power so chose. In such cases, their is no consent of the governed, there is no, “We the People” their is only the rule of the powerful over those not having power.
The New York Slimes knows perfectly well that their insistence that gun regulations are about public safety is a lie.
In what is certain to be one of this decades most under reported stories, the Fifth Column Treasonous Media has, not surprisingly chosen to not report on a news story that is as obvious as an Obama lie.
Concealed Carry Means Fewer Murders, Says New Study
Quinnipiac University economist Mark Gius has published a new study, “An examination of the effects of concealed weapons laws and assault weapons bans on state-level murder rates,” in the journal Applied Economics Letters. From the abstract:
The purpose of the present study is to determine the effects of state-level assault weapons bans and concealed weapons laws on state-level murder rates. Using data for the period 1980 to 2009 and controlling for state and year fixed effects, the results of the present study suggest that states with restrictions on the carrying of concealed weapons had higher gun-related murder rates than other states. It was also found that assault weapons bans did not significantly affect murder rates at the state level. These results suggest that restrictive concealed weapons laws may cause an increase in gun-related murders at the state level. The results of this study are consistent with some prior research in this area, most notably Lott and Mustard (1997).
There is nothing new about this study, this information has been known to the FBI for at least 40 years. Every year they list violent crime statistics, and buried in those reports is an addendum which correlates violent crime with conceal and carry counties. The disparity between occurrences of violent crime and ease of obtaining a conceal and carry permit is incontrovertible evidence that gun regulation does not produce a less violent and safer environment. Markedly, the exact opposite is also incontrovertible, that those area’s having the most restrictive regulatory practices have the greatest incidents of violence. The fact that the founding Fathers knew this can clearly be seen in their personal writings.
No, Dick Metcalf drank the liberal Marxist kool-aid, and was properly excoriated from the firearms community. His views, as expressed in that revolting article that ended his tenure as a voice in the Conservative gun world, were diametrically opposed to those of America’s Founding Father’s. Whether Dick was always a socialist who wormed his way into the Conservative gun culture to work as a saboteur and corrupt the conservative gun culture from within, or just an imbecile who drank the kool-aid later on in life, is something only Dick Metcalf himself knows. What you can be certain of is that now, having lost his voice in that world, he isn’t about to admit what his true agenda was. No, he will do exactly as the Slimes is doing, try to paint himself as an innocent victim of radical extremists.
While it is true that there are things in this world that are comprised of shades of gray, it is equally true that there are those that genuinely are stark black and white issues. You are either alive, or you are dead. You are either a murderer or you are not. You are either pregnant or you are not. Likewise, you have either drank the Jim Jones Progressive/Liberal/Marxist kool-aid or you have not. The Founding Father’s very intentionally left no ambiguity in what they intended the 2nd amendment to mean. Under no circumstances was the government; federal or state to ever tell a free citizen that they could not own a firearm.
That was it, period, end of story. That is what “Shall not infringe” means. It not only means shall not tell them they cannot own, it likewise means shall not place any obstacle between any free citizen and firearms ownership. In other words, no regulations, no registration, no permitting process. Shall not infringe is the strongest language every used in the United States Constitution restricting what the federal or state governments had the authority to do.
in·fringe // //
v. in·fringed, in·fring·ing, in·fring·es
To transgress or exceed the limits of; violate: infringe a contract; infringe a patent.

To encroach on someone or something; engage in trespassing: an increased workload that infringed on his personal life.
[Latin īnfringere, to destroy : in-, intensive pref.; see in-2 + frangere, to break; see bhreg- in Indo-European roots.]
Dick Metcalf’s odious article did exactly that, it attempted to muddy the waters in the minds of conservative guns owners regarding the 2nd amendment, and for that he was rightfully kicked to the curb. If you want to influence people whose minds are so open that their brains fell out, go influence the Progressive/Liberal/Marxists useful idiots. If you want a platform and a voice to influence Conservative American’s, then you better understand, they’re not stupid, and if you try to sell them poisonous snake oil, they are going to send you packing.
