‘Conservative Hero’ Ben Carson To Beck: You Have No Right To Semi-Automatic Weapons In Large Cities
by Andrew Kirell | 10:26 am, March 3rd, 2013
Appearing on Glenn Beck‘s radio show this past week, Dr. Benjamin Carson took a vastly different stance from most conservatives on the issue of gun control, claiming you shouldn’t be able to own semi-automatic weapons in large cities.
Carson became a newfound conservative hero last month when he spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast and laid out a series of criticisms of ObamaCare, political correctness, and tax policy right in front of the president himself. Many called the speech “inappropriate” given the apolitical nature of the event, but many conservatives lauded Carson for his “bold” and “sensible” suggestions for policy reform.
Asked by Beck for his thoughts on the Second Amendment, Carson gave the popular pro-gun argument: “There’s a reason for the Second Amendment; people do have the right to have weapons.”
But when asked whether people should be allowed to own “semi-automatic weapons,” the doctor replied: “It depends on where you live.”…(Con’t)
TWG: These companies would be VERY welcomed here in Montana. Besides being a gun-friendly State, we have our “Montana Firearms Freedom Act”, which protects these companies from overreaching federal tentacles.

No sooner had Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed three gun-control bills into law Wednesday than the economic backlash began.
Officials at gun equipment manufacturer Magpul Industries confirmed that the company would make good on its vow to leave Colorado if the governor signed the bill to limit ammunition-magazine capacity. The Erie-based manufacturer confirmed on its Facebook page that it will start its transition “almost immediately.
“We will likely become a multi-state operation as a result of this move, and not all locations have been selected,” said the company in a statement, adding that it expects to begin manufacturing its PMAG-brand magazines within 30 days of the bill-signing.
Magpul may be the first firearms-related business to relocate as a result of state gun-control laws, but it probably won’t be the last. Companies in Connecticut, Maryland and New York are considering moves to more gun-friendly pastures as their state legislatures act on restrictive firearms measures similar to those pushed through by state Democrats here.
Founded in 1999, Magpul stands as a relative newcomer to the firearms business, but even companies with hundreds of years of history in their states may look to relocate as a result of political shifts.
In New York, where Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed laws banning so-called assault weapons and limiting magazine capacity to seven rounds, venerable gun manufacturer Remington Arms is being wooed by officials in at least a half-dozen other states.
TWG: Those evil beasts had better come up with a response to this soon. America is headed into the bloodiest, most violent war this world has ever seen. I suggest you take notes and keep track of who is supporting this treason against America and Her Citizens
We, The People DEMAND DHS immediately surrender these weapons, tanks and ammunition to our Department of Defense.
It does not take a tempest prognosticator to see exactly what this horrid regime has in store for us.

Dear friends, the following is a copy of my correspondence with Senator Cornyn concerning the arming of the DHS for war against the citizens of our nation. You are each encouraged to copy and properly amend this letter to send to your own senators and members of the U.S. House. Further, I am somewhat overwhelmed at the response to my posts leading up to this letter on this issue. At this point almost 3,000 of you have shared my original post, I have 994 new friends requests, 61 messages, and 70 new comments to process. Please be patient with me and pray that this window of communication remains open to all of us as we respond to this threat against our Constitution and our people. I am awed by you, by your positive response, and your wonderful support. We each have a role to play in standing against this present tyranny. Part of that proper response is sending them a letter like this from YOU, and following it up to make sure it remains a “hot button” issue that must be resolved. God bless you as you honor your oaths and your obligations as citizens of this free nation. May we once again know honorable leadership and peace at home. With all sincerity and respect–Resolved, Captain Terry M. Hestilow, United States Army, Retired.
The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas

Re: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America.
Dear Senator Cornyn,
It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by that agency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United States of America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America.
Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaign speech claiming, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded [as the United States military]”–Candidate Barack Obama, 2008.
The Obama administration is deliberately defunding, overextending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimate agency of the U.S. government with a war mission.
This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obama administration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against the Constitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peace loving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution “against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except to prepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of liberty fought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths.
The only proper response to this threat against the American people is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. House and Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore, that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD). Further, since the DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against the limits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United States Congress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers established by our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon as possible. One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and his associated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the free citizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until it was too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passive toward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration!
Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived in peace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and the many appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts. We stand today at a cross-road. Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and its legal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations to defend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy? Our Constitution lays out the proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include its overthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home. You, sir, are our constitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home. We are counting upon you. We remain aware, however, of this present threat and will not expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation.
I know that this letter demands much of you. We elected you because we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to the task at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office. We are also writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand in integrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS.
We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation!

Hat tip Mantenga for the forward. Thank You, Mantenga.
In addition to the M1 tank fleets, F16 Fighter Squadrons, High Powered Weapons, military training and BILLION$ the obama regime is redistributing to their islamic terrorist pals, we have even MORE money being shuffled out while our own people are suffering. Our Veterans have lost benefits, our air traffic control towers shut down, our schools shut down and thousands of dangerous illegal alien criminals being released from prisons, along with a plethora of budgetary cuts in other critical areas.
obama’s Dept of Foreign affairs have announced that they have awarded the Palestinian terrorists another $500 MILLION
$200MILLION from this years budget will be handed over as direct aid to the Palestinian terrorists.
The money has been released to coincide with Obama’s visit to the Middle East.
As if that wasn’t enough he also gave $200 MILLION to Jordan.
(Keep an eye on Jordan. The obama regime will topple them next in order to continue installing their islamic caliphate they so desperately need. )
Of course, obama’s propaganda whores wouldn’t think of disclosing this TREASON to the American people. We have to get the news from other Nations. Thank God there are bloggers out here to share this information.
Clearly, America’s laws against TREASON have been eliminated.
The entire world is either laughing at us or crying for us.
I am so ashamed to be an American today. This Nation is full of idiots, created by the so-called “educators” we’ve allowed to raise our youth into nothing more than glassy eyed sheeple, advocating for their own serfdom and for the death of this once great Nation. And the common core scheme will lock this down to perpetuity, with nary a whimper from “caring parents”.
The “educators” continue to churn these idiots out by the millions into our society. One does not need a tempest prognosticator to see where we’re headed.
If you haven’t already, say your goodbye’s to America as you know it. We will soon see the bloodiest, most violent war this world has ever seen. God help us all. We’re finished.
And we deserve nothing more.
Shame on us.

TWG: BOYCOTT those idiots in EACH AND EVERY State that’s infringing on our unalienable rights. Come to Montana, where the hunting and fishing is abundant, and law abiding gun owners are not treated like mass-murdering criminals!

The pressure is building on Colorado in the wake of its new laws that infringe on the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Gun owners across the country now say that they will hit the state in the pocket book, punishing Colorado economically for essentially kicking gun owners in the teeth.
Magpul, a magazine manufacturing company located in Colorado, has already announced it will be leaving the state, taking hundreds of jobs with it, and creating a hole in Colorado’s economy to the tune of $85 million this year alone.
But this action is far from the worst of what Colorado faces as a consequence of its new law that bans magazines and guns that carry over 15 rounds, eight rounds if it is a shotgun, and mandates background checks on private, citizen-to-citizen gun sales and transfers. Gun owners plan to avoid the state as a regular destination for hunting, fishing, and other recreational use of firearms — one of the major sources of revenue for the state government.
Outraged by what they view as a direct attack on their rights as citizens, the gun owners who regularly visit Colorado wish to send a clear message to the state legislature — you can’t expect us to continue allowing Colorado to benefit from the revenue generated by our sporting activity if the state is going to treat gun owners as criminals….
