A Prayer For Our Beloved Veterans


A Prayer for Our Veterans

Eternal and Loving God, we are so thankful for the men and women that You have raised up to serve our country with honor, dignity and commitment in the past and present, in war time and times of peace, in combat or on the home front. We remember them today as they have served with honor, dignity, courage and commitment.

We ask You to bless them in the sacrifices they have made to give of themselves for the cause of freedom. We ask You to surround them and their families with your love and protection as many continue to serve on the front lines.

In their times of loneliness and despair, we ask You to be their unseen hand that will lift them up to see a brighter day. We remember those who have lost their lives in service, and we applaud their selfless acts as well as their families that released them to serve. As You have blessed this nation as the land of the free and the home of the brave, we extend this blessing to every branch of our military, and ask that your continued strength and power be with us in the days ahead.

We thank You that their service has not been in vain, and we salute them with honor today and every day. Believing that You are willing and able to hear and answer, we ask in Jesus Name, Amen.

Washington SB 6396 Assault Weapons Ban RECAP


Here’s notes on the so-called “Assault Weapons Ban” from Washington State.  Although this Bill is napping until next session, it WILL appear again during next session, and it IS lurking at all states and at the Federal level.  The issues remain the same, so please refer to this when fighting ANY so-called “Assault Weapons Ban”, which will continue across this country, IN PERPETUITY.

SB 6396

Assault weapons, banning the sale of http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=6396&year=2009

Sponsors: Senators Kline, Fairley, Kohl-Welles, McDermott

A group of four State Senators has introduced Senate Bill 6396, legislation that would bring California-style gun-control to the Northwest and ultimately ban many semi-automatic firearms commonly owned by Washingtonians.

This legislation would establish far-reaching restrictions on semi-automatic firearms (dubbing them “assault weapons”) and ammunition magazines. SB6396 affects every firearm modified to conform with the now-extinct Clinton Gun-Ban plus many other semi-automatic firearms that have no lineage to those rifles or any military-style orientation whatsoever.

Introduced by Sen. Adam Kline, (D-Seattle) on January 13, 2010, prohibits the selling and purchasing of assault weapons. Exceptions to the rule include manufacturing assault weapons for law enforcement, owning an assault weapon that is incapable of shooting, and owning a weapon prior to the date of this legislation. If the weapon was purchased prior to the date of legislation, then it must be securely and safely stored on the owners property. Breaking this law would count as a level 3 crime and be punishable for between 3 months and 5 years in jail.

Seventy million gun owners did not break the law. Over 99 percent of gun owners are law abiding citizens. This bill is unconstitutional, arbitrary, and will not reduce crime. Rather, it will divert law enforcement resources. There are many definitional problems within the bill. You either need to ban all semiautomatic weapons or none of them. You cannot carve out a subset. Making a weapon that has nine rounds lawful and one with 11 rounds unlawful is totally arbitrary. Furthermore, some of the attachments included in the definition of assault weapons are merely cosmetic and have nothing to do with how lethal the weapon is. This bill will merely cause confusion and increase sales of assault weapons. The person behind the firearm is what is wicked and not the firearm. We need education in this area and not legislation.

Post Hearing Note:
Sen. Adam Kline’s quest to ban so called assault pistols and rifles ran into a human wall of opposition during the hearing in his committee. Gun rights activists were outraged, packing the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Senate Bill 6396; a show of hands revealed that about 99 percent of attendees opposed the bill.

STATUS AS OF MAY 29, 2010

* Referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee on January 13, 2010.
* Jan 26 Public hearing in the Senate Committee on Judiciary at 10:00 AM.
* Mar 15 By resolution, reintroduced and retained in present status.

 
THIS PIECE OF “LEGISLATION” WILL REAR IT’S UGLY HEAD AGAIN. PLEASE KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR IT DURING ALL FUTURE LEGISLATIVE SESSIONS.  THIS ISSUE IS BEING PURSUED AT ALL STATE LEVELS AS WELL AS FEDERAL LEVELS. WE MUST BE VIGILANT IN OUR FIGHT AGAINST THIS RELENTLESS ASSAULT ON OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!

Boycotting Arizona?


I like the idea.

After all…….  Why give money to all those ILLEGAL ALIENS living and working in the State of Arizona? 

BOYCOTT ARIZONA!  PUT THE ILLEGALS OUT OF WORK AND EVICT THEM FROM THEIR ILLEGALLY OBTAINED HOUSING!  REVOKE THEIR ILLEGALLY OBTAINED MEDICAL BENEFITS AND EDUCATION AND SEND THE CRIMINALS  BACK TO THEIR HOME TO MEXICO, WHERE THEY BELONG! CLEAR OUT OUR OVERCROWDED JAILS AND HOSPITALS AND GET THESE CRIMINALS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY.

HA!  I Love it.   GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY, ILLEGAL ALIENS!

And to the American Citizens of Arizona,  We, The People (LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS) will come to your state and help you once you’ve cleared out the cockaroaches.

Finally! NOW will you believe the UN Disarmament Scheme is a looming threat?


I’m getting tired of screaming about this mess.

Will you please look into it NOW?

Global Small Arms Treaty threatens your right to self defense

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES

6:51 p.m., Thursday, May 27, 2010

American gun owners might not feel besieged, but they should. This week, the Obama administration announced its support for the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. This international agreement poses real risks for freedom both in the United States and around the world by making it more difficult – if not outright illegal – for law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE ARTICLE

Bloggers Beware…. We’re Next.

Just when you thought it was safe to start expressing your right to free speech, Democrats in Congress are gearing up for a vote on a new piece of legislation to blatantly undermine the First Amendment. Known as the DISCLOSE Act (HR 5175), this bill – written by the head of the Democrats’ congressional campaign committee – is their response to the recent Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. In short, the Supreme Court found that the government could not restrict the free speech rights of individuals or other entities wishing to participate in the political dialogue.

The Usurping Swine (B.O.) in OUR White House Will Be Chumming With His Chicago Thugs Instead Of Respecting Our Veterans In Arlington National Cemetary This Memorial Day


UPDATE: MARCH 26, 2010:     After posting this and email to several contacts about this issue, the response was overwhelmingly AGAINST B.O. stepping foot on the Sacred Ground where our Beloved Veterans rest. (almost 4,000 Patriots chimed in on this issue!)   Almost everyone was thankful he isn’t planning to attend the ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery.    I must say that I agree wholeheartedly. The Usurper in our White House has done nothing but spit in the faces of our Military Members and on the graves of our Veterans by shredding our Constitution, our Bill Of Rights and by destroying our Country. 
 
You’re right.  He is not welcome anywhere near our Veterans and their Final Resting Place.  With that in mind, his decision not to attend Arlington just goes to show his contempt for our Veterans, but we’re happy about his decision.

…he will instead be in Chicago.  Doing The Chicago CIRCLE JERK.  I’m sure Rahm Emanuels will be there to give him a “Mouth Hug”.  

The SMUG FACES AND MIDDLE FINGERS from this regime are becoming “tiresome”.  But when they crap on our Veterans is when I say ENOUGH.

CLICK HERE TO READ THE ORIGINAL STORY ABOUT THIS DESPICABLE TYRANNICAL USURPER’S MEMORIAL DAY PLANS

What else does anyone need to see, when a sitting American president does NOT attend the Memorial Day Ceremony at Arlington Cemetery?

How about THIS?

The Washington Post talks about it as if it is an ordinary weekend and Obama’s just going home to visit old friends from his old neighborhood.

In a city where they are begging for martial law to cut down on the escalating violence, where high school kids are bashing others’ heads in with railroad ties, that’s where he would rather spend his Memorial Day weekend?

And he’s not there to solve the crime problem?

 

The Washington Post rag went on to say that Obama will be “finally addressing one of the great broken promises of his administration: his early pledge to return home to Chicago every six weeks or so.”

Is the whole world on crack, or am I reading too much into the fact that our president will not be honoring our war dead on Memorial Day, while our troops are currently serving in TWO wars?

Hey, Obama, you should be here, where Gary Sinise will be, as he is EVERY year:

 

This is what Americans do on Memorial Day:

 

What other evidence do we need?
