Saturday marked the 43rd year anniversary of the Kent State Massacre.
On the 4th of May, 1970, a group of unarmed college students were gunned down by the Ohio National Guard at Kent State University. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
This was done by a government hellbent of continuing the perpetual wars in Southeast Asia. Peaceful protests silenced by violence at the hands of the government is pure evil… there was and is NO excuse.
Last weekend, President Obama made a speech warning college students to reject the voices that warn about government tyranny. Of course, the President would like people to be off their guard. His presidential policies of creating law by executive order, and refusing to enforce laws he doesn’t like, come close to the definition of tyranny, if not crossing over the line. History — a subject about which most college students are not well educated — is full of warnings about government tyranny.
Never forget Kent State. Never forget Attorney General Janet Reno’s massacre of women and children in Waco, Texas. Tyranny is alive and well. You’re not necessarily safe, even peacefully demonstrating at a school, if you’re offending powerful people in government with weapons. Learn history. Love it. Live accordingly.
The Founding Fathers worried that “some common impulse of passion” might lead many to subvert the rights of the few. It’s a rational fear, one that is played out endlessly. Obama, who understands how to utilize public passion better than most, flew some of the Newtown families to Washington for a rally, imploring Americans to put “politics” aside and stop engaging in “political stunts.” This is, by any measure, a preposterous assertion coming from a politician piggybacking tragic events for political gain. It would have been one thing, I suppose, if the gun control legislation written in the aftershock of a gruesome massacre had anything to do with the topic at hand. But what senators came up with would have done nothing to stop the shooter in Newtown — or the one in Aurora, Colo. Passions can be aggravated by events, but in this case, events have little to do with the policy at hand.
Here is a father who loves his son. He trained him and certified him in proper gun safety and use. And he gave him a rifle as a present. Naturally the kid proudly posted this on Facebook.
The nanny state swooped down, “investigating” possible child abuse.
Crazy. Fortunately, this man knew his rights, and exercised them. No warrant, no search!
Walk down Madison Avenue in New York. Many posh stores have, on view, or behind a two-way mirror, an armed guard. Walk into most any pawnshop, jewelry story, currency exchange, gold store in the country, and there will be an armed guard nearby. Why? As currency, jewelry, gold are precious. Who complains about the presence of these armed guards? And is this wealth more precious than our children?
Guns — for a gay, black Democrat to defend himself and family
Austin gun shop owner Michael Cargill, 43, might not fit the popular image of the gun rights movement. He’s gay and a Democrat. He didn’t grow up hunting, or with guns in his home. In fact, his family shunned guns like many other black families — a reaction, in part, to the harrowing rates of black-on-black homicide.
Cargill applied for a concealed-gun license 22 years ago, after his grandmother, who decided to get a nursing degree at the age of 70, was mugged and raped on the way home from the library. Now he runs Central Texas Gun Works in Austin, which specializes in concealed weapons.

In his shop he sells a T-shirt with the slogan “Buy a gun. Annoy a liberal.”
If it can save one child’s life, why would we not ban ibuprofen?
