Former Maine IFW Commissioner “DEMANDS” Destruction of Your Inalienable Rights

Repeatedly I have written about the fact that fish and wildlife departments nationwide have gone green and become nothing more than Left-Wing environmentalist that oppose hunting, fishing, and trapping as well as complete predator protection. Going hand in hand with these mental-midget totalitarians is the call to ban guns believing in their progressive empty heads that such an action will somehow, magically stop violent crimes.

If there are any that agree with my assessment of things, they may not realize that this morphing didn’t happen overnight. It did not and here is some proof.

Some may remember former Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Commissioner Bucky Owen. Owen served under Gov. Angus King (oh, that doesn’t surprise you?) in the late 1990s through early 2000s. It’s difficult to wrap your head around the idea that one man in charge of a government agency where once it’s function was fish and game management, which included the North American Model of Wildlife Management (includes hunting), is now “demanding” action to destroy the Second Amendment and your inalienable right to decide how you would prefer to protect yourself and your property.

In a brief Letter to the Editor of a Bangor, Maine newspaper, Owen writes: “…raise the age for gun ownership to 21; require a safety course for all gun owners just as we do for hunters; reduce the legal clip size to that of a traditional hunting rifle; make bump stocks illegal; require universal background checks for the sale of any firearm; outlaw semiautomatic weapons, such as the AR-15; keep weapons away from those who don’t have the mental capacity to use them correctly; and finally; ensure better data gathering and sharing among law enforcement agencies.”

In addition to his misguided empty-headedness on the fact that besides destroying our rights, not one single thing he suggests will do a damned thing to stop gun violence or make schools safer. But the liberal disease knows no deep-end bounds and he shows his real anger, hatred, and ignorance when he writes: “For those who want to play “Rambo,” make these weapons available at a licensed shooting range, and if that isn’t enough, join the Marines, where you can shoot to your heart’s content.”

This person once led the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Difficult to think this man served in a leadership role.

Owen, and many, many, others have encouraged and supported children dictating the social and political structure of this nation. I am reminded of when the Leftists actively sought to bring children into positions of authority sitting on school boards dictating what they wanted their education/brainwashing factories to look like. I ask, how has that turned out. Are we now so stupid that we look to children for our leadership?

With this infectious disease of progressivism/totalitarianism threatening our very existence, is it any wonder our fish and game departments are doomed?

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Shared Goal: Reduce Violence, Make Communities Safer?

Jim Shepherd at the Outdoor Wire ended his optimistic piece by telling readers that the National Shooting Sports Foundation sent out a press release encouraging people to become involved in the conversation, “to see violence in our society reduced and our communities and our children made safer.”

So far every so-called Second Amendment advocate group and most individual s0-called Second Amendment supporters have only talked about banning guns not being an answer, but have been willing to ignorantly support ridiculous efforts to make schools safer by “educating” (propagandizing/brainwashing) the public about violence and mental illness, while giving law enforcement more authority and leeway to confiscate your guns.

What’s not being addressed, and probably never will, are those issues that have MADE this society violent, angry, mentally ill, chemically altered, etc. that drives a person to exemplify that abnormal manipulation into violent actions.

If the real “Shared Goal” is to reduce violence and make our communities and children safer, the conversation needs to be broadened into areas where most people will become uncomfortable. It will never happen. Too much money at stake.

The NRA Are Hypocrites

Perhaps doing a slightly better job of pointing out the insanity of the newly-signed bill in Florida than the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the NRA shows their hypocrisy on their NRA-ILA website (surrounded by “Donate Now” buttons).

Evidently, the NRA completely supports parts of the new bill (as does the NSSF and others) including the blanket approval of actions to “educate” and “rat” on anyone “suspected” of having mental issues and ceding more fascist authority to the police to confiscate guns and ask questions later. As Trump stated, he preferred to confiscate guns first and worry about Due Process later. Nice…real nice! Leadership? Hmm!

This and a plea that states: “Contact your members of Congress and state lawmakers today and ask them to oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.”

Maybe the NRA should take a lesson out of their own playbook. If we lined up all the “gun control schemes” the NRA has been promoters and supporters of, it might make a fairly large book.

And it’s time to ask why the NRA thinks giving more power to cops to confiscate your property and at the same time allow governments to decide what is mental illness in the context of gun buying/ownership and what it is that is to be “educated” upon the people, isn’t supporting “gun control schemes” that impact law-abiding gun owners?

Wording is everything. The NRA states (above) that: “…oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.” (emboldening added) Are they saying that it is okay to support “gun control schemes” that impact gun owners and criminals together? Their historic record seems to indicate that, which in turn makes them an anti-Second Amendment organization. So, keep sending them money! MONEY-MONEY-MONEY!!!

The NRA also says that: “If we want to prevent future atrocities, we must look for solutions that keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans.”

According to how the NRA operates those solutions all involve giving up some of your rights. I guess they call that compromise. Either it’s a right or it’s a meted out privilege. Have we already forgotten that a previous administration in the White House believed that GIs returning from war who sought any kind of emotional assistance should be banned from owning a gun? Apparently so! What could possibly go wrong when Government decides your state of mind? Who decides theirs?

And is the NRA suggesting that we take away a person’s right to “innocent until proven guilty” and “Due Process” as a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist; a fairytale that it will prevent further crimes by “mental” people?

The answer appears to be yes. It is obvious (to me anyway) that the NRA pisses on the Second Amendment and then tells people it’s raining, so why wouldn’t they be willing to offer to give up even more of your rights to the sacrificial lamb (money and power)?

But if forget. You think the NRA is your best friend. He ain’t much of a friend, but he’s the only one you have…right?

Why Is the Parkland, Florida Shooting Different?

Or is it? One has to wonder, or ought to anyway, why, only hours after the staged Parkland, Florida school shooting, anti-gun bills were systematically introduced in state legislatures across the country, and now in Washington.

There was a lot of grumbling about gun hating after the Las Vegas shooting and after the nightclub shooting in Orlando, but there wasn’t this seemingly planned event to bring to the lawmakers all these anti-gun bills.

Was it because it was all a part of a bigger planned event?

Whatever you do…

DON’T GO LOOK!

It’s What’s Wrong With Those Pretend Second Amendment Advocates

I tire of reading and hearing idiots say that they might realize groups like the NRA and the NSSF aren’t perfect but they are better than nothing. Are they? Is it better to be slowly eaten to death by ants than to just have it over with in an instance? The end result is going to be the same.

Perhaps some don’t want to talk about the realization that all of these fake Second Amendment groups are no different than any other group – they’re in it for the money. Yeah, that’s right. It’s the money stupid.

You see, groups like these can’t be real supporters of the Second Amendment because there is not so much money in it. The broader the base of their support the more money. So, instead of simply standing up and saying I have an inalienable right to choose how I will defend myself and my property and that choice might involve a gun, a hatchet, a golf club, or a Bible, they appeal to where the most money is. You know, those “reasonable” limits to what God gave you even before you were born?

They want your money…period!

Do you need more proof? Or is it more comfortable to just pretend they are on your side? Your choice.

Today the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) sent out an email asking that you contact Florida Governor Rick Scott and ask him to veto the recently passed bill that demolishes your inalienable rights and those granted to you by your government.

Yesterday I reported on the passage of SB7026, a bill that would place your mental status in the hands of some government agent who is, perhaps, more insane than you are. This bill would rebuild the school in Parkland where the latest shooting took place – I suppose to make sure to remove any evidence that might incriminate the bastards who actually did the shooting. In addition, insane propagandized automatons are going to “educate” more and more of you to teach you how to rat someone out you might think is mentally deranged because…GASP… they own a gun.

If you are in favor of this fascist government deciding whether or not you are insane, then you’ll love the idea that this bill gives YOUR heroes, the cops, more power to confiscate your property because some fascist/totalitarian has determined that you shouldn’t possess a gun. I’m sure while they are taking your guns, they’ll pause for a moment and gun down a few of you who they THOUGHT was armed and dangerous. You and 9/11 created them.

And there’s more, much more but I won’t bore you with such insignificant details because I know you don’t care. Trust your heroes!

So, back to the NSSF. They ask members/readers to contact the Florida governor for a veto because of the age restriction included in this bill. The new law raises the age to 21 as a minimum age to buy a gun. With that and a 3-day waiting period, what’s to complain about?

The NSSF writes: “The National Shooting Sports Foundation supports measures to increase school security and ensure that the mentally ill and prohibited persons are unable to obtain firearms; however, we strongly oppose any proposal to increase the age from 18 to 21 for the purchase of long guns. Raising the minimum age to 21 to purchase a shotgun or a rifle for lawful purposes is an infringement on the constitutional rights of young adults between the ages of 18 and 20. In the United States, you are an adult when you turn 18. Your constitutional rights are fully vested, including the right to vote and the right to keep and bear arms. This unconstitutional age-based gun ban would deny young adults their right to self-protection.”

Evidently, they are NOT, I repeat NOT, supporters of the Second Amendment or your right to be able to defend yourself how and when you choose. To the NSSF, evidently, all they care about is the age limit of when you can buy a gun. Is that because this would severely cut into the profits of the gun manufacturing industry who are probably heavy supporters (give gobs of money) to groups like the NSSF and NRA? Don’t tell me you never thought to that.

They tell us they support school security and keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill (they discount themselves of course) but instead of reading and listening to the lying, cheating, frauds in the Media and from these political groups, why not take some responsibility and go read the damned bill that just passed. There’s nothing in it that will do any of what they say they support…nothing! But the rhetoric and talking points of the bill appeal to a broader base of people = more money, more money!

Upon discovery, an honest person would then ask why is the NSSF only speaking out asking the governor to veto the bill because of the age restriction? Why aren’t they asking that the entire bill is vetoed and never brought up in the Florida Legislature or any other legislature in this country? It’s because if they did, they would lose the financial support from all those who simply love to give the government all their rights and turn them into meted-out privileges. Got to think about the salaries and retirement benefits.

If the NSSF and the NRA whittled their membership down to only the true understanders of inalienable rights and government-issued rights, there would be virtually nobody left to pay their big salaries.

Oh what, you thought it was only those Leftist (wink-wink) groups that paid out big salaries to help do the bidding for the Government? Ha!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m pretty much completely fed up with the country and the world in general. I’m fed up with morons who thrive on their own efforts to hang themselves, to whittle away at their own existence, incapable of thinking beyond the end of their modeled noses. Soon Artificial Intelligence will tell them when to wipe when they are finished…you know what.

There are zero reasons to place an ounce of trust in any man-made government…ZERO, ZERO, ZERO. And yet, it’s exactly what you do. I just don’t understand.

But forget about what I say and write. You know better than I do. You have come to love and trust your servitude. Now live with it. Don’t look for me there.

Someone one day asked me what I had to fear because I supported the Second Amendment. I told them they had it all wrong (which is typical). I fear nothing. I have no reason to fear anything. “For the Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want….”

It’s not so much about my love affair with a gun or guns. I worship but only the True Yahweh who gave me a long time ago, real liberty, real freedom, and real rights. For now, I have to live in this world and as long as I do, I will do what I can to expose the wrongs, the fraud, the corruption, the evil, the Satanic, and protect those rights given to me by my Creator.

If my words have offended you that’s too bad. I would rather that you woke up than went down with the ship you are on.

None of us can protect our rights when we work so hard to give them all away.

I just don’t get it.

Jerks in Florida Pass Ridiculous Anti-Second Amendment Bill in Knee-Jerk Fashion

Reinforcing the fact that people refuse to react unemotionally or learn anything from history, has reared up in Florida where legislators crucified the Second Amendment, my inalienable right to self-defense, gave out of control cops more power to confiscate guns from somebody they might not like, and placed power in the hands of government and government agencies to decide if someone is “mental.” What could possibly go wrong?

Perhaps such fascist idiocy on display in Florida is the result of the fascist idiocy on display in Washington where lying, anti-gun President Trump said he supported taking away people’s guns and worrying about Due Process later.

All of this brings rushing back to me H.L. Mencken’s quote: “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.” Need I remind readers that our local, state, and federal governments are made up “the American public?”

A total of $700 million dollars in funding is included in this fascist move with $470 million going to mental health issues alone. Briefly, the new law, unless vetoed by the governor, includes possible arming of some in schools – restricted to a very limited number and of those who might be eligible; establish a 3-day waiting period for the purchase of any gun; outlaws “bump-stocks” (and I doubt seriously they even know what one is); and raise the minimum age to be able to buy a gun to 21.

And I have to ask, HOW IN HELL DOES ANY OF THIS STOP OR SLOW DOWN MASS SCHOOL SHOOTINGS?

For those interested in the 105-page fascist bill that just passed 67-50, you can find SB7026 at this link.

I’m Not All In With This Man’s “Gun Culture”

I read this article this morning of a man describing his world of “gun culture.” I thought a lot of it was well presented, although I didn’t necessarily agree with all of it, including some of the “feelings” he gets from carrying a concealed weapon, etc.

What I disagreed with the most was what is on display in this country at present. Somehow the “gun culture” has taken the high road, while on the one hand promoting a person’s right to self-defense and to keep and bear arms, and on the other hand assuming the role of a good totalitarian in support of fascist government regulation and control over an inalienable right to keep and bear arms and a person’s choice as to how to do that.

The author writes: “Many gun-rights supporters were appalled to learn after the Sutherland Springs shooting that the military was systematically underreporting disqualifying convictions to the federal background check database. Under pressure, the military has added more than 4,000 new names in just three months. Similarly, law-enforcement failures or background-check failures that preceded, for example, the Virginia Tech, Charleston, Orlando, Sutherland Springs, and Parkland shootings are spurring serious new consideration of the gun violence restraining order, a move that would allow family members and others close to a potential shooter to get in front of a judge to request that the court direct law enforcement to temporarily seize a dangerous person’s weapons. It gives ordinary citizens a chance to “do something” after they “see something” and “say something.

The intent here is understandable. What is seriously flawed in the circular thinking process is the belief that some Second Amendment restrictions affect only the lawful citizen and others don’t. This action requires that the True Believer fully trusts his government to do the right thing and protect us. How has that worked in the past?

I can’t be a part of this “gun culture.” I don’t like government telling me how, when and with what, I can defend myself.

The author is proud that the military has turned in more names of those now prohibited from buying and owning a gun, with complete faith and trust that each and every one of them was justified…by whose standards I might ask. Seriously, is there any valid reason that we should believe and trust the government to do anything that is right?

The writer has complete faith in his government that a “temporary” taking of a person’s property, deeming them “dangerous” (by whose standards I ask again?) is a good thing. And, I’ll bet this same person is the first to wonder why his inalienable right to protection is being systematically taken away and by piecemeal being ceded over to the Government for administration.

By God don’t we ever learn anything?

Perhaps Not All “Failures” in the Florida School Shooting Were What We Think

One thing is certain. Every time there is a mass shooting or a mass killing event, there are always more questions left unanswered than answered to most people’s satisfaction. It is no different with events in Parkland, Florida.

Let’s take a look at a USA Today article written by Glenn Reynolds called “Florida shooting yet another government failure to keep us safe.

Before we completely blame the government for failures, isn’t it time to point out, again, that there is a huge failure of the public to look to government to keep us safe? Enough said.

Have we turned on our self-appointed “heroes” in law enforcement? It seems that after 9-11 cops and first responders could do no wrong…with a few exceptions.

Glenn Reynolds rightfully, in my opinion, describes all the failures that took place before, during, and after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass murder in Parkland, Florida. He writes: “From the FBI, to local law enforcement, to the schools, everyone failed. There was failure early, there was failure in the middle, and there was failure late. And no one has taken responsibility.”

It’s difficult to deny any of this. But let me raise some questions that might hold meaning to what is precisely going on that few know about and the majority refuses to consider.

Reynolds presents to readers, whether intended or not, a common theme. “We have more government, at all levels, than we’ve ever had before. Yet failures like this keep happening. The FBI, after all, missed the Tsarnaevs (who committed the Boston Marathon bombing) despite being warned by the Russian government. It missed the 9/11 attacks even though it was investigating Zacarias Moussaoui — agents investigating Moussaoui hit so many roadblocks that they joked that Osama bin Laden must have had a mole in the Bureau HQ. And, of course, the San Bernardino shooters and Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen escaped the net as well.

Is the FBI really this incompetent? I thought they were everyone’s “heroes” looking out for you.

As Reynolds points out in his writing, “…Then, when Cruz finally began shooting up the school, the failures became even more outrageous. A Broward County sheriff’s deputy — weirdly, the same Deputy Scot Peterson who apparently ignored the Instagram threat and also refused to cooperate with investigators — was on the scene, but cowered in the parking lot instead of taking action.”

He also adds something from CNN: “Then CNN reported that not only did Peterson stay out of the building, three other deputies hid behind cars instead of intervening.”

Again I ask, I thought these guys were all “heroes” to you?

But, seriously. I have never thought it was ever a good idea that we, in honest attempts to prevent living in a police state, should idolize those in uniform with guns and authority that can make our lives miserable in the wink of an eye. With this thought, I must say I would be one of the last to defend law enforcement.

Having said so, are we to believe that 4 police officers were afraid to enter the building and that 3 of them “hid behind cars?” I don’t buy that story. Cops may be many things to many people but generally speaking, they are not chicken to walk into a battle scene. With probably the rare exception, cops become cops for the very nature of what they do. They love a position of authority over others and relish the opportunity to live up to their billing of “hero.”

If I’m correct, then why didn’t they enter the building and/or try to do something to stop the further bloodshed?

As more stories surface, for whatever value they have, we hear the same things we have heard in the mass killings noted above: Officers waited outside; ordered to stand down; eye-witnesses claiming there was more than one gunman; one student claimed to walk out of the school with alleged murderer Nicholas Cruz, etc.

Perhaps all those stories are a bunch of bull pucky…or they are all true – perhaps some are true. We will never know.

So at least can we ask the obvious (to me) questions?

Question One – Is our FBI so inept that they have nothing more to show for our billions in tax dollars than failure after failure? It seems they can report they found a fly that came to America from Russia on the ass end of a horse, programmed to “fix” our elections, but they can’t properly investigate all the events that led up to the mass murders named above?

I don’t buy that horse manure either.

So, a combination of supposed chicken cops in Parkland, Florida and an FBI so incompetent it probably fails to keep toilet paper on hand in their offices, we are being told is a simple failure. Hmmm, I wonder.

Question Two – Who knew what, when, and from whom did they know it? Did the FBI, as with all the other mass killing events, know beforehand and/or were a part of those events? Were the “chicken” cops only doing what they were told to do because someone higher up was also under orders?

Question Three – If this was a conspiracy of some sort, what might a reason be? The simple answer would be guns. I have contended for many years that the only and last roadblock to total tyranny and a dictatorial rule is guns. I’ve also said they still aren’t in a position to simply take our guns from us. Instead, they must find other ways, little by little.

Remember? It was on September 11, 2012, when “terrorists” attacked the U.S. Diplomat Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, killing the ambassador and others. What was the first thing out of the mouths of our corrupt government terrorists? Remember? It was a video said to be mocking Islam and that “provoked” an attack. I thought we learned a lesson from that but evidently not.

What was the first thing out of the mouths of many after the Parkland, Florida shooting? Damned the NRA! All attention was deflected onto the NRA, that iconic false strongarm of the Second Amendment. The NRA provoked an innocent attack on students. Nothing else is to blame. It was a choreographed deflection as was the video used in the Benghazi attack.

Question Four – How many more of these events will it take before you will either become a complete slave with no rights left to you, or you will demand answers to uncomfortable questions?

If nothing more than choosing to take the easy way out and accept the all-around failures of governments theory, then people might want to consider who it is that they choose to make their idols and heroes.

Stupid is as stupid does.

Continued Promotion of “Reasonable” Destruction of Gun Rights

The National Shooting Sports Foundation and others are encouraging their members to contact their senators to push them to pass the “Fix NICS Act, S.2135.” Who needs those who openly fight to eliminate a person’s right to protect themselves and their right to choose how to do it, when there are rich and powerful so-called Second Amendment advocates working round the clock to do the job of the anti-gun crowd?

So-called pro-Second Amendment groups tell those whose money they need to pay overblown salaries that laws created to limit a person’s rights under the Second Amendment will only affect the lawful citizen; that criminals and the insane pay no regard to laws when they need a gun, or any other weapon, to carry out their crimes. Surely there are many other methods of mass killing than a couple of guns.

Evidently, the NRA and NSSF, to name a couple, don’t believe what they tell others and are pushing for the U.S. Senate to pass a useless “Fix” to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Not to cloud the picture here by introducing facts to consider in this illicit act to make a mockery out of the Second Amendment, but has anybody actually read S2135? I didn’t think so.

Suppose you believe in your misguided mind that somehow a corrupt government that operates a criminal enterprise that is rigged can pull off something like S2135, which is only an amendment to the existing laws that are supposed to regulate the instant criminal background check. Already they have proven they are incapable of making it work. Adding 33 amendments to the law will not change anything. The problem isn’t guns, but don’t let me mess up your Nirvanic experiences.

In your same off-track minds, you think this amendment will do the trick and will prohibit, unqualified “mental” people from buying a gun. Unlike the common criminal, mentally ill people, which includes those who have been found guilty of “domestic abuse,” or sought help for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, will be unable to possess a gun to carry out their mentally deranged plans to kill people. One might have to ask who are the sane ones around here?

So, let’s say S2135 passes and you believe it will stop or limit undesirable citizens from buying and owning a gun. BUT, HAVE YOU READ THE ACT? I didn’t think so.

The Senate, the President, and all that support this Act intend to make it work with bribery and extortion, with no real consequences for not doing the job described in the Act. This Act sends gobs of money (bribery) to government agencies, both state and federal, as “incentives” to do their jobs. And if you fail to file your reports on time, the head of each agency not meeting deadlines, will not be eligible for end of the year bonuses (extortion) until they have cleaned their rooms completed filing.

Did I also mention that these “required” filings of records of those meeting ineligibility requirements to buy or own a gun, don’t have to have everyone on the list? 90 percent will be sufficient. I’m positive more than 10% of those ineligible to own a gun do the mass killings (wink-wink). Oh, wait! Almost none of those who have committed mass murder with guns failed or would have failed a criminal background check, even for being a mental case. Shucks! I’m confused.

So you see, the insanity is prevalent throughout society and government. People are confused and say things they don’t believe or even understand. They are incapable of injecting any sanity into anything. All actions and reactions are driven by programmed anger and hatred. Democrats wanted the FIX NICS ACT and the Republicans stopped it. Now the Republicans and their cronies want FIX NICS ACT and the Democrats don’t. And there is no insanity?

Oh, if only the people would clean out their blind hatred, things might change. Is there any hope?

2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my people, among whom my Name is called upon, do humble themselves, and pray and seek my presence, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear in heaven and be merciful to their sin, and will heal their land.
