People if we don’t stop the indoctrination and hijacking of our children we will have lost in the fight for freedom. Please take a look at this website and 5 short videos to learn about the communist program taking over our schools called COMMON CORE CURRICULUM.
Make 2013 the year to fight indoctrination in our schools. NO COMMON CORE, NO IB, NO Race to the Top, NO Outcome Based Education. Lets get back to the 3 R’s instead of the 3 E’s.
Glassy Eyed Idiots Throwing Hissy Fits Over Discovery Channel Special On Guns in America, Hosted By Ted Nugent
Discovery Channel to air Ted Nugent special on guns in America, lefties flip out
Ted Nugent to Launch Discovery Channel Gun Country Series: ‘Ted Nugent’s Gun Country’ will debut October 10th …
The outspoken rocker and staunch proponent of the Second Amendment is getting his own one-hour special on the Discovery Channel. “Ted Nugent’s Gun Country,” set to premiere on October 10, will showcase the role guns have played in shaping America and Americans’ relationship with nature.
More from the TedNugent.com press release:
Nobody has more absolute fun with guns than my family. Like millions of American families, these utilitarian tools and works of art serve us well in all manner of good, clean, legal, safe fun, recreation and competition. Our American Dream is measured in ballistics.
With more than 40 million albums sold, Ted Nugent is a rock and roll legend — but music is just one of his passions. He’s also a strong and vocal advocate for guns, hunting and all things America.
In Discovery Channel’s all-new one-hour special Ted Nugent’s Gun Country, premiering October 10 at 10 PM EDT, viewers will get an inside look at American gun culture through the eyes of staunch second amendment defender Ted Nugent. Meet Nugent’s family and visit his sprawling Spirit Wild ranch just outside Waco, Texas, home to many species of big game that freely roam the meadows and pastures. An avid hunter and conservationist at heart, Ted has his eye on the herd of scimitar-horned oryx that have bred far faster than he anticipated. Knowing the land can’t support the booming population, he plans to thin out the herd — and that sends him on a mission. He needs the right firearm and right ammo to get the job done. For that, it’s a trip to top-grade firearms maker LaRue Tactical.
Naturally, the glassy eyed loons are hyperventilating and feverishly calling for a boycott of Discovery Channel, spewing the typical “racist!” and “bigoted” and “nutjob!” accusations against Mr. Nugent and the Discovery Channel. What a mob of fools. They can thank a so-called “educator” for their complete ignorance.
Naturally, I’ll be watching the show. I look forward to it. Please, Discovery Channel, DON’T BOW DOWN TO THOSE GLASSY EYED FOOLS WHO OPPOSE OUR HUMAN AND CIVIL RIGHTS IN THIS NATION.
Ashley Rice was raised by hippie parents who taught her guns are not the answer.
Then she moved to Missoula to get her master’s degree, and Montana’s gun culture surrounded her.
It scared her, too.
The Nebraska woman, a firm believer in educating herself, decided that instead of being afraid of guns, she would sign up for a firearms safety course.
The first time she pulled the trigger, she hit the bull’s-eye.
“It was a very strangely empowering thing,” Rice said. “I felt really capable, and I’ve never felt capable through anything outside of education before in my life. That was a really weird thing for me.”
Rice is among the many students who are flocking to Gary Marbut’s firearms safety classes this year. Marbut, a firearms expert and author of “Gun Laws of Montana,” holds three or four full classes in a typical spring.
This year, to keep up with demand for the $100, full-day course, he’s teaching twice as many. So far, he said more than half of his enrollment has been made up of women, and some common themes are boosting the count: uncertainty about the political future, lack of security in the economy, and concerns about sexual predators in Missoula.
“I think all of those three things are causing interest to spike, which I think is good,” Marbut said in a recent interview. “People need to learn how to be responsible for themselves and learn how to be in charge of their personal security.”
As soon as Rice picked up the two books Marbut assigned for a class in May, she started wondering what she was getting herself into.
“I sent him (Marbut) this frantic email. ‘I haven’t even touched a gun before. I’m so scared. Are you sure I can do this?’ ” she said.
And she remembered his response: “Of course you can do this.”
In fact, Marbut, president of the Montana Shooting Sports Association, said women who have no experience with firearms are his favorite students because they’re aces at listening and learning. And learn Rice did.
In the classroom portion of the day, Marbut talked about the power of guns, the reasons for them, the correct ways to treat firearms, and how to take responsibility for owning weapons, Rice said. By the time she headed for the shooting range to fire an actual gun, she felt 100 percent at ease with a concept that once had troubled her.
“He has you so comfortable with the thought of what you’re going to be doing and what you’re holding in your hands, it was easy to pull the trigger the first time,” Rice said.
When her pacifist mom learned she was taking the course, her mom texted her a joke about guns. But Rice believes her dad and brother, a U.S. Marine, are proud she’s become knowledgeable about guns.
Rice doesn’t plan to buy her own firearm anytime in the near future, and neither does Rachael Sparks, who also took the class this spring. Sparks, too, was afraid of guns before she enrolled, and she also described feeling “empowered” after taking the class.
Even if she doesn’t ever own a firearm, she now knows how to tell someone to do so safely if she perceives they aren’t; she knows how to get out of harm’s way if she ever needs to remove herself from a dangerous situation that involves a gun; and she knows how to use the firearm safely herself if necessary.
Sparks also knows how to use a gun well, and to her own surprise. The first time she took a shot, she figured it flew off the mark.
“Being the first time I had shot a gun, I was convinced that I had missed the target completely, that it was way up in the hills,” Sparks said.
But that bullet and the rest of her first round went straight through the prime target in her silhouette, which she saved as a souvenir. Friends back home in Massachusetts can’t believe she took a shooting class, but Sparks is glad she did and credits Marbut with making newcomers feel welcome, capable and empowered.
“It’s something I’m very proud that I did,” Sparks said.
Even Montanans who are seasoned with firearms sign up for Marbut’s course. Bruno Friia, who took the class about a year ago, is in no way a newcomer to guns, but he wanted to learn more about them.
“I’ve always been a sportsman. I’ve always had firearms around the house, and I just thought it would be nice to take a formal class, learn all the protocols, and learn all the idiosyncrasies that you don’t learn when you’re learning from your dad or your uncle,” Friia said.
Friia, for instance, has kept a gun in a gun safe at his home. Now, he knows how to have a personal weapon available that’s at home, outside the locked safe, but in a way that’s safe for anyone in the household.
His daughters are familiar with hunting and fishing, and they’re active in their own self-defense, but Friia found the class so beneficial, he wants the 26-year-old twins to take it as well. He said they’ll probably do so this fall.
“He’s a great instructor,” Friia said of Marbut. “He communicates really well, and there’s nothing left to not understand.”
[TWG Note: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS!!! C’mon Mom’s and Dad’s! Do something to prove you care about your daughter’s safety and security!!!]
Inaugural Event June 9 2012
Boys learn to shoot in Scouts, or with their Dads. Often the girls are left behind, because shooting isn’t ‘girly.’ Well, we can, and do, shoot, and well! Learning to shoot gives young women confidence, helps to build self-esteem, and introduces them to a sport they can participate in their whole lives.
This event will promote firearms safety and education, as well as family bonding through participation in an exciting and fun sport.
Even though we are focusing on the young women, Moms and sons are welcome. The whole family can shoot together, safely and enjoyably.
If you believe, as we do, that this is a worthwhile event, please help us keep it going. There is a donate button to the right side at http://www.nationaltakeyourdaughtertotherangeday.com . In this first year, fully 100% of the money raised is supporting the infrastructure and events. The start up costs have been kept to a minimum by using social media to get the word out, but we founded a non-profit corporation, built the website, and filed for a trademark to protect the name. Plus there are administrative costs coming, mailing prizes, etc. There is no minimum donation, and every dollar is greatly appreciated and will help us to keep this going and to make it an annual event.
Larger sponsors please take a look at the Information for Sponsor Page for information. Donations and gifts in kind will be gratefully accepted and distributed among participating ranges.

Thank you all for your support and … Safe Shooting!
“The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out of the general powers of government. A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.” ~Cockrum v. State
“The right is general. It may be supposed from the phraseology of this provision that the right to keep and bear arms was only guaranteed to the militia; but this would be an interpretation not warranted by the intent. The militia, as has been explained elsewhere, consists of those persons who, under the law, are liable to the performance of military duty, and are officered and enrolled for service when called upon. . . . [I]f the right were limited to those enrolled, the purpose of the guarantee might be defeated altogether by the action or the neglect to act of the government it was meant to hold in check. The meaning of the provision undoubtedly is, that the people, from whom the militia must be taken, shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for that purpose.” ~Thomas Cooley
“Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American … the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” ~Tench Coxe
“It is not the function of the government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error.” ~Justice Robert H. Jackson
“It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The freeman of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle.” ~James Madison

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.” —Patrick Henry, Speech in the Virginia Convention, June 5, 1788
We the People, by and large, have given up that force, abdicating it through ignorance, laziness and apathy. And that includes most members of that citizen militia the Founders deemed “necessary to the security of a free State.”
Henry’s contemporary, and in many ways, ideological opposite, would not have been surprised.
“The project of disciplining all the militia of the United States is as futile as it would be injurious,” Alexander Hamilton warned in Federalist 29.
“A tolerable expertness in military movements is a business that requires time and practice… to acquire the degree of perfection which would entitle them to the character of a well-regulated militia, would be a real grievance to the people,” he observed. “Little more can reasonably be aimed at, with respect to the people at large than to have them properly armed and equipped.”
This site was recommended by Gary Marbut and the Montana Shooting Sports Association. It’s chock full of useful information, focused specifically on women’s concerns, but also contains information on gun care, instruction, selection and proper technique.
I strongly recommend this site for all who wish to learn more about firearms and their use, and specifically for Ladies who are considering obtaining their permit to carry, firearms training and self defense issues.

Subject: Plain & Simply Put
If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If not, no one cares how or if you take your chances.
…Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not to protect you.
Never let someone or thing that threatens you get inside arm’s length and never say “I’ve got a gun”. If you feel you need to use deadly force for heavens sake let the “first sound they hear be the safety clicking off”, and they shouldn’t have time to hear anything after that if you are doing your job.
‘The average response time of a 911 call is over 23 minutes the response time of a .44 magnum is 1400 feet per second.’
Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is a drill instructor (Thunder Ranch is a firearms training facility in Arizona ). Here are a few of his observations on tactics, firearms, self-defense and life as we know it in the civilized world.
“The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win and cheat if necessary.”
“Don’t forget, incoming fire has the right of way..”
“Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, cause it’s going to be empty.”
“If you’re not shooting’, you should be loading’. If you’re not loading’, you should be moving’, if you’re not moving’, someone’s going to cut your head off and put it on a stick.”
“When you reload in low light encounters, don’t put your flashlight in your back pocket.. If you light yourself up, you’ll look like an angel or the tooth fairy… and you’re going to be one of ’em pretty soon.”
“Do something. It may be wrong, but do something.”
“Shoot what’s available, as long as it’s available, until something else becomes available.”
“If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That’s ridiculous. If you have a gun, what in the hell do you have to be paranoid for?”
“Don’t shoot fast, unless you also shoot good.”
“You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or use any other word you think will work, but I’ve found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much the universal language.”
“You have the rest of your life to solve your problems.. How long you live depends on how well you do it.”
“You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.”
“Thunder Ranch will be here as long as you’ll have us or until someone makes us go away, and either way, it will be exciting.”
More Excellent Gun Wisdom
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
1. Don’t pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.
4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.
5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him ‘Why do you carry a 45?’ The Ranger responded, ‘Because they don’t make a 46.’
6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.
7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. ‘Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?’ ‘No ma’am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.’
8. Beware of the woman who keeps a gun close by; she probably knows how to use it.
‘The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.’ G. K. Chesterton
A people that values its privileges above its principles will soon lose both.
“Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not…” – Thomas Jefferson.
If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, or if you like how it’s inherently targeted at the element that needs targeting, forward this if you wish to do so.
If not, no one cares how or if you protect yourself.
