Guns and Past vs. Present Americans

What’s the difference between yesteryear and today? The logic of the argument for those calling for stricter gun control laws, in the wake of recent school shootings, is that something has happened to guns. Guns have behaved more poorly and become evil. Guns themselves are the problem. The job for those of us who are 65 or older is to relay the fact that guns were more available and less controlled in years past, when there was far less mayhem. Something else is the problem.

Guns haven’t changed. People have changed. Behavior that is accepted from today’s young people was not accepted yesteryear.<<<Read More>>>

Gun Control Laws Aimed At Public Safety: The Devil is in the Definitions

Yesterday I posted a notice about the intent of Maine lawmakers to introduce a bill disguised as a “Community Protection Order” that will “Prevent High-Risk Individuals” from possessing firearms.

Some may say the intent of the proposed legislation is a good idea and perhaps that is true to some extent. A serious argument can be made as to whether such a law is an infringement on the Second Amendment as well as Due Process.

But forget about that for a moment.

Much of the problem with any of these laws is that interpretations of definitions are left up to a court and the arguments of lawyers. That, in and of itself, should alert us immediately to serious problems.

The crux of this proposed legislation is centered around “mental illness” and/or a person’s propensity toward violent and emotional behavior. Recognizing the seriousness of these conditions is a matter of a person’s perspective. Do we really want to limit Due Process based on the perspective of a judge?

LD 1884, is the Maine proposed bill which is the matter of topic. I’ll go ahead and post what this legislation uses for “definitions” to help understand the intent of the law and offer comments after.

§ 401.  Definitions

As used in this chapter, unless the context otherwise indicates, the following terms have the following meanings.

1.  Community protection order.   “Community protection order” means a written order signed by the court that prohibits and enjoins temporarily, if issued pursuant to subchapter 2, or on an extended basis, if issued pursuant to subchapter 3, a named individual from having a firearm in that individual’s custody or control or owning, purchasing, possessing or receiving or attempting to purchase or receive a firearm.
2.  Family or household member.   “Family or household member” has the same meaning as in Title 19-A, section 4002, subsection 4.
3.  High-risk individual.   “High-risk individual” means an individual who presents an imminent and substantial risk of serious bodily injury or death to the individual or to another individual and:

A.  Has a mental illness that may be controlled by medication but has not demonstrated a pattern of voluntarily and consistently taking the individual’s medication while not under supervision; or
B.  Is the subject of documented evidence that would give rise to a reasonable belief that the individual has a propensity for violent or emotionally unstable conduct.

The fact that an individual has been released from a mental health facility or has a mental illness that is currently controlled by medication does not establish that the individual presents an imminent and substantial risk of serious bodily injury or death to the individual or to another individual for the purposes of this chapter. As used in this subsection, “mental illness” has the same meaning as in section 3318-A, subsection 1, paragraph B.

4.  Restrained individual.   “Restrained individual” means an individual who is the subject of a community protection order.
Community Protection Order – Of note here is that this order can be issued in one of two ways – either as a temporary order by a court that has determined that an individual fits the bill’s criteria of being barred from having anything to do with a gun, or the same conditions on an extended basis once again according to the interpretation of the court of Subchapters 2 and 3.
The title of this order is designed to mislead the public into thinking this is the will of the “community” a communistic term and that it is for the purpose of keeping that “community” safe from those with a “mental illness.” After all, all those with a “mental illness” are mass murderers…right?
High-Risk Individual – This is where things get really dicey. A “High-Risk Individual” is here defined as someone who a judge thinks (his perspective of course because there are no real definitions for this condition) is going to hurt himself or another person. In addition to this perceived condition, this person has a “mental illness” – again an interpretation based on biased training or thinking/ideology. Once a court decides for themselves a person has a mental illness they must then decide whether they think this person has been taking their medications as prescribed by some quack doctor.
The suggestion here is that if a judge, having decided you have a “mental” condition, deems that you haven’t demonstrated “a pattern of voluntarily and consistently” taking your pills you lose your right to self-protection and due process.
Part B of this section is a real doozy! If it is shown “through evidence” (wink-wink) that actions by any person with a court’s definition of mental illness can show a “reasonable belief” that such a person has a disposition toward “violent or emotionally unstable conduct,” then they will be issued a Community Protection Order – perhaps ostracized for life.
The real joke is when the authors of the bill attempt to mislead the voters by saying just because a person has a mental illness, and has been “released from” a nut house, so long as they are being good brain-dead zombies and taking their chemicals, doesn’t necessarily mean they are a threat to the valued “community.” RIGHT!
History has shown us that it is most often a needless task to keep “mentally ill” people institutionalized and pumped up or down with chemicals and is a drain to that valued community, so they are gathered up and murdered. After all, these valued communities cannot be bogged down and given bad images from anyone with a “mental illness.” They MIGHT pose a threat, real or imagined, to their way of life. Society decides who lives and who dies.
Restrained Individual – Once you have met all the criteria that the “Community” has determined using their own standards of measurements, including societal tolerances, political ideology, and in general operation under the fear instilled in them by actions of a fascist governmental regime, the lucky winner becomes labeled as a “Restrained Individual.” How fortunate.
Whether you agree with the intent of the proposed bill or not shouldn’t matter once you consider how such fascist laws, put into play by willing and eager totalitarians, are a serious threat to any society that still deems itself to be free.
Giving power to the Courts and to governments to make decisions based on highly abstract and illusory definitions is quite akin to National Socialism. If you don’t fully comprehend National Socialism then you haven’t been paying very close attention.
There are channels that already exist in which efforts to control a deranged person from committing mass murder. If the information given to the public about the shooting in Parkland, Florida is at all truthful, then the lesson to walk away with is that those with authority to have intervened failed in their jobs. Insanity tells us to make more fascist laws that will not and cannot be enforced will somehow make a difference.
But this problem is not endemic to Maine. Since the Parkland, Florida shooting many state governments and the Federal government have proposed laws that are similar that leave the interpretation of what determines a mental illness, propensity to violence, or emotional unstableness up to the courts and the governments. Even fake Second Amendment advocates have stood firmly behind such insane legislation.
With each passing day, it amazes me more and more the eagerness of totalitarian useful idiots to help tie the noose that will one day be their demise. In the days of Marx and Stalin, when these two were finished using those that helped bring them to power, they just murdered them to get them out of their way.
So what’s happening to you today?

The March For Our Lives Was The Coming Out Party For Generation Z, Or Whatever

Another article that deserves the Horse Excrement Award:

The author is Michael J. Hudome. His brief bio included with the article states: “Hudome is a Republican media consultant whose clients have included John McCain for President, all four national committees and several current and former members of the House and Senate.”

Doesn’t that say enough about the author? Anyone who would consult with the likes of John McCain should tell the enlightened what kind of a real person he his. But, if you don’t want to take that as a reason to turn your nose up at his liberal nonsense, then just read the article.

While parts of the beginning seem to make some sense. Intelligent honest people can agree that demanding that guns be taken away to end gun violence doesn’t work and is NOT a solution to an immoral society’s dilemma about the root cause of violence.

However, seeking solutions from children is as stupid an idea as taking away the rights of lawful Americans. Meaning no disrespect to the children of this nation but this has been tried before and it doesn’t work – at least it doesn’t work from the perspective of a wide awake, non-leftist who believes that progressivism is much the root cause of society’s problems today. More of it will only make a worse condition.

I must take just a moment here to add:

BUT DON’T GO LOOK!

Sorry!

But then the author, like any good fake “Republican consultant” who would support John McCain, calls upon the Whore of Babylon to empower Generation Z to solve the problems claiming “Z” “can lead on issues like Gay Rights.” He boldly states that “The future is bright for the “Z” generation. Let’s march with them.”

The author claims that the issue of Gay Rights is a settled issue, that it is the law of the land, therefore are we then to simply accept another societal destructive tool from the Whore of Babylon? Is that what this society uses today as a barometer of moral decency? Isn’t this part of the reason we are in big trouble today?

We have leaders promoting decadence and now we read and hear the same criminal bastards in Washington placing the undeveloped and easily influenced minds of children on a pedestal to be heard. And not only heard but this author suggests that we should accept them as our new leaders and to follow them into the pits of hell.

Sin Is The Cause of All Violence, Including in Schools

In the staged events of a Parkland, Florida school shooting and all subsequent and related events, such as protests, demonstration, actions by government, etc., the majority of the discussion has centered around guns. As a brainwashed (I know people don’t want to hear that word) society, we automatically equate guns with violence. It is understandable and easier to associate an inanimate object – a gun – with violence than laying the blame where the blame belongs – the man.

Even those who seem to want to defend their right to keep and bear arms, spend countless hours presenting data and history in hopes of convincing people that guns aren’t the problem.

I was reading this morning another in a long list of school safety proposals and how $20 million will help to make Maine schools safer. Will it?

Completely void of any discussion about the problem with violence is the direction our society has gone. Oh, it’s easier to mouth a few words about how “things have changed” etc., but never any real in-depth talks into the specifics of what and why.

I recently brought into a related conversation about gun violence video games and this country’s music culture of filthy, disgusting lyrics and glamorizing of violence, including gun violence, and just like the movies, they were defended by the other in the conversation as irrelevant to the problem of gun violence and in particular school shootings as though mentally ill people can differentiate between fantasy and reality. How then can there ever be any serious productive actions taken to address the problem of school safety or violence in general?

I have read countless writings about gun history, school history, violence, perversion, violence, anger, violence, hatred…and did I mention violence. I have yet to read any discussion on the history of man and why that violence exists.

If you are an atheist or an evolutionist, don’t bother to read any further.

Adam and Eve had two sons – Cain and Abel. By man’s biological understanding, we can say that Cain and Abel were twins. An examination of the Scriptures hints to us that Cain was a product of Evil and Abel a product of Good.

Cain killed his brother Abel. This act of violence, enmeshed with several emotional, nonsensical feelings, were all the result of his parent’s sin. From the very moment that Yahweh’s creations of Adam and Eve chose to carry out a sinful act against the wishes of their Creator, violence has been a part of the social structure of all societies since.

Knowing this fact, are we to somehow devise that man is capable of stopping violence simply by taking away a tool used to perpetuate that violence?

Willingness to accept this premise doesn’t mean that as a society we should not make rational attempts at mitigating violence, including making changes to all influencers of violence, anger, and hatred. But, we cannot cherry-pick only those items that we are most comfortable with.

Because violence will never go away in this existence, it is the reason Man was forced to devise ways of being able to protect themselves from those that are going to commit violent acts regardless of what the majority of society decides otherwise. Protection from violence is a common occurrence in this country. If you want examples, look to our politician criminals in Washington attempting to tell us what limitations we must have to protect ourselves, while they have as much of any kind of protection that they want. Why is that? Are they somehow more deserving of life than you or I? Hint: They think so.

Cars kill more people than guns. Automobiles are regularly used as a weapon to mow people down in a crowd to carry out the anger and hatred of a violently programmed mentally ill person. People drink and drive killing many people every year. Speed kills. Distracted driving kills. There’s never been a call to ban cars. Instead, cars were made safer to protect the driver and passengers. Laws were made to limit speeds one can safely travel, but those laws do absolutely nothing to stop those with a bent to drive fast which endangers the lives of other sharing the highway. Laws were created to stop cell phone texting while driving. In case you hadn’t noticed it has done NOTHING to stop the distracted drives killing people every day.

Many things can be used as a dangerous weapon. Sin means there will always be some that will use those weapons to carry out their sinister acts. Making laws that remove an innocent person’s ability to protect themselves from the sinful, violent acts that will always take place, makes absolutely no sense at all. This is the reasoning of a mad person.

Because of the sin in the Garden of Eden, men will do sinful things – even to craft laws that are useless and oppressive because sin has blinded them from rational thought and reasoning.

Since the beginning of time sin has resulted in acts of violent behavior. Since the beginning of time men have devised ways to protect themselves from such terrible behavior. Sin is in control when men think they have the power to stop acts of violence by devising laws that result in the opposite outcome.

Sin is the base foundation of the madness this society is embroiled in. Blindness is sin. Blindness prevents seeing Truth.

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 Insanity of the Insane

Once again insanity is on full display. Not simply because some child programmed with anger and hatred by a society riddled with anger and hatred, but because those who hold at least some of the responsibility for the anger and hatred cluelessly promote more anger and hatred by attacking the wrong source of destructive behavior.

Our world is insane, incapable of rational thought. You kid yourselves to think otherwise. We are slaves to the Global Power Structure and are trapped helplessly in it. But, we must love it or we would do something about it. Our programmed insanity, brought on entirely by our refusal to seek Yahweh for real answers and real direction, only seeks solutions that will provide for the continuance of our self-chosen immoral and decadent lifestyles.

Not unlike the false issue of AIDS, where we seek a “cure” rather than address the sin that is at the root cause of the affliction, when a person who has been taken over with anger and hatred, much of which is promoted out of Washington by the Media, resorts to violence, real or staged, the ignorant, blinded masses begin screaming for gun control as though it was some kind of cure for the problem. The belief is that if we take away the guns, we can continue to live the disgusting lifestyles we so much are in love with.

But like with everything else, our insane society attacks the wrong thing and seeks the wrong answers. If there is violence, many attack the existence of guns, stating it is the cause of violence. No matter how often you attempt to set them straight with facts, their insanity has such a deep and strong grip they refuse to listen. They love their immorality. They love their decadent lifestyles and will do anything to protect it. This is proven on a daily basis.

This insane society feasts and thrives on violence, anger, and hatred. This insane society is constantly brainwashed with the rhythmic cadence they call “music” that is loaded with filth, sexual abuse, violence and all things of no socially redeeming value, and yet it is always something else that must be attacked as the root of the problem. The same is true for movies. Bombarded with constant images of evil, violence, sex, and drugs and all we can come up with is to attack guns. Our addiction to social media has become a tool to perpetuate the filth, sex, abuse, violence and is the birthing grounds of more anger and hatred. And the best we can come up with is to attack guns.

And yet, when, as a result of the insanity of our society, a mentally deranged, angry and hate-filled child, our very own product of an insane society, picks up a gun and kills a bunch of children in a school setting, all that can be suggested is that we need to do something about guns.

It is not the answer!

Yeshua’s disciples asked Him how they would know when the “Latter Days” were upon them. He told them that things would be as they were in the days of Noah. We are living in the days of Noah, where all that is known are falsehoods, deceptions, filth, decadence, anger, hatred, greed, lust, disrespect, idolatry, murder, violence, sexual abuse, child molestation, and all things that are the product of Satan. Is it enough like the days of Noah for Yahweh to put an end to it?

You are what you eat! This insane society fills up on Satan. It cannot get enough. This insane society is so badly tainted they cannot witness their own insanity. And the best anyone can come up with is that we need to control guns.

What further proof is needed that the world is insane. It is ripe for Yahweh, as in the days of Noah, to put an end to this disgustedness.

Yeshua, COME QUICKLY and save us from our insanity!

The Purpose of Welfare

I had a brief but interesting exchange of emails from a close friend the other day. The foundation of the original email was concern over a growing trend in Maine of home invasions – something rarely found in the Pine Tree State, and as a result more people are taking to arming themselves for protection.

Found within the text of the email was this statement: “Many years ago a state government official told me that Welfare was not designed to make people happier and healthier. The purpose was to keep them from attacking you.” I suppose this can be compared, at least somewhat, to keeping the lion fed so he doesn’t have reason to attack, kill and eat you. As an aside, this statement was made over 30 years ago by a Leftist. My how things have changed.

The point being that with a new administration in Washington, at least the perception is that there is a crack down on drug offenders, and criminals in general, and that free handouts will be reeled in, causing the effect of more home invasions, i.e. the lion not getting what he has become accustomed to receiving without having to work for it.

Arm up and stop the freeloading!

Allyne Caan: Children and Cartoon Violence

Guns, as we know, have been around and accessible for centuries. Guns aren’t the variable. And for decades, countless children have been exposed to video games yet have not grown up to be violent killers. Video games aren’t the variable, either.

Instead, we have to look beyond the video games and guns —a blasphemous thought for those who want to disarm Americans — and to the utter instability of the American family and the moral worldview now prevalent in our society.

Exemplification of Planned Chaos

Richard Fernandez’s article pertaining to the Dallas “shooting” of five police officers is a perfect example of how the ruling establishment’s (that establishment that nobody wants to know and learn about) plan is working quite well. Some of us think that the plan involves civil war, if not uncontrolled civil violence – real or theater. Media’s job is to perpetuate the Hollywood-style blood scenes and “gin up” the masses for more violence.

Violence has arrived. Our ignorance will fall for the ruse. The outcome has yet to be determined.

Good luck!

How deep is our ignorance? Extremely! Fernandez reports that in the last year there is a shooting of another man in Chicago every 2 1/2 hours. Chicago: Where guns are banned! America and the world are unable to make any cognitive connection between the two.

There is no hope. We believe what we see to be real and are incapable of recognizing anything real anymore.
