When Will the Gun Control Crowd Ever Learn?

There was another mass shooting, another school shooting at a school in Uvalde, Texas, killing 19 children and two adults. And once again the gun control crowd irrationally calls for more restrictions on guns.

The problem with gun control laws is that they do not disarm criminals, they merely disarm law-abiding citizens and make them defenseless.

Criminals don’t obey the law, and that is why we call them criminals.

Criminals and violent psychopaths obviously don’t care that it’s illegal to assault and murder innocent people. Right? So they obviously don’t care about laws restricting gun ownership, possession, buying or selling of guns. If guns are not available and the criminal psychopath wants a gun then he will steal a gun. Criminals don’t care that stealing is illegal, either.

Why can’t we get the hysterical, irrational gun-grabbers to understand these basic facts? (Because they’re hysterical and irrational?) Instead, they want to disarm law-abiding citizens so they can’t defend themselves.

And someone who is hell-bent on killing a lot of people is going to do so with or without guns. If he can’t get a gun then he might get into a car and run into those kids in the playground. What are you going to do, ban cars? Or he’ll get knives and stab a bunch of people like they do in England. So ban knives?

In the school where 20 people were murdered, if a teacher or staff member had been armed then that person could have taken out the shooter early on, saving at least some of those lives, or most of them.

So that really is the choice. Either keep gun-free zone laws in place, in which wackos will target the kids and no one around can disable the shooter and more victims will be killed, OR let people at the school be armed and they can save lives. THAT’S the choice.

In the old days, even kids had guns. They brought them into school. There were school rifle teams and gun clubs. No one thought anything of it. And there were NO SCHOOL SHOOTINGS! Hmm, why was that?

(There was also no xanax, zoloft, and other anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs given to the kids, as well as adderall and ritalin being given to the kids. Was the Texas school shooter taking those horrible psychiatric drugs?)

There are other factors, of course, as to what drove the school shooter to murder innocent people. Many societal and family-related factors. A militaristic culture. A decaying society. Two years of the Covid scamdemic, suffocating masks. I’m glad I’m not a kid these days, that’s for sure.

Secession, Withdrawing Consent, Restoring Freedom

Southern Catholic Mom has this article urging people to uncleave. That is, to uncleave from:

those who worship the Covid religion, the “mandate” religions, the face masking and face covering religions, the jab-or-job religions. the BLM religion, the blood-libel-against-White-people religions, the snuffing in assisted living and hospitals religions, the kinky and degenerate religions (LGBTQ?, drag-queen story hour librarians, child-sex propagandists everywhere),  the gardening and self-sufficient hating religions, the government schools loving religions, the war-loving religions, the cop and soldier worshipping religions, the government and government employees worshipping religions, and all other human-hating religions

And she goes on about the government schools, although private schools as well. And other aspects of how our society has been corrupted by government and the collectivist mindset. “Let us begin our secession, withdraw our consent…” Yep.

And for several years there has been this movement to get liberty lovers to move to New Hampshire. Although sadly there have been “liberal” refugees from Massachusetts and other blue states who have moved to NH and bringing with them the same policies from which they have been fleeing in their blue states. The current U.S. senators from NH, for instance, are the awful Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen, both Democrats. Who would vote for them?

But there is hope for New Hampshire. The twitter user “Move to NH,” @NHpilled, has this thread on some of the pro-freedom bills that have been passed in the NH House and headed on to the Senate. If passed in the upper chamber, let’s hope that Gov. Chris Sununu signs them all into law.

I’ll post the initial tweet and if you want to look at all the subsequent tweets which list all the accomplishments you can click on the tweet and do that. But I will quote some of them here.

If the tweet doesn’t show up here, this is the link to it.

Here are just some of @NHpilled’s examples of House-passed pro-freedom bills:

“HB1178 prohibits state and local law enforcement from enforcing certain federal firearms laws.”

“HB1636 extends constitutional carry to OHRVs, the main area that was overlooked in the historic CC bill passed in 2017!”

“HB1668 was defeated which would have required background checks for all gun sales including private sales between individuals and noncommercial sales (i.e. gifts). Background checks continue to be optional in the Live Free or Die state!”

“HB1431 creates a “Parental bill of rights” which allows parents to opt out of sexual and gender curriculum in schools, direct the moral and religious upbringing of their children, the right to access and review all school records of their child, and much more!” (I’ll bet that Southern Catholic Mom would especially like this one!)

“HB1280 bans a parent’s refusal to vaccinate a child as a reason to terminate parental rights.”

“HB1131 Prohibits mask mandates in government (public) schools.”

“HB1455- state nullification of federal vaccine mandates. In other words, the state will not assist or collaborate with the federal government to enforce federal vaccine mandates.”

“HB1022 legalizes the sale of Ivermectin by pharmacies.”

“HB1330 eliminates licensing requirements for medical technicians.”

“HB 1495-explicitly prohibits the state from requiring businesses to require vaccine documentation or documentation related to vaccination or immunity status.”

“HB 1606 making the state vaccine registry an opt-in program.” (Why does a “state vaccine registry” even exist?)

“HB1097 provides that all income received by NH residents physically performed in NH shall not be subject to taxation as earned income in any other state. Making this a tax sanctuary state for those that work virtually.”

“HB 1425 expands the protections for the taking of real property by eminent domain.”

“HB1221 reduces the Business Profits Tax rate, effectively reducing taxes by $8 million annually.”

“HB 1171 exempts niche beauty services (such as hair braiding) from occupational and shop license requirements.”

And “HB1282 requires law enforcement to obtain a warrant before receiving customer information from common carriers.”

Wow!

NH Free State Activist Carla Gericke Testifies on Behalf of Secession

Carla Gericke is a libertarian activist and New Hampshire Free Stater who gives testimony here in favor of putting a question on the ballot for New Hampshire voters to decide whether to secede and become an independent nation, just as the colonies seceded from the British.

Like the colonists’ oppressors King George and all his minions, our oppressors are slithering in the DC Swamp.

I wrote about Carla’s 2016 run for the state senate. In her 2020 run she was the Republican candidate and received 45% of the vote.

As I have said many times, this U.S. territory is just too big to be all one single political unit or country, at 3.8 million square miles and a population of 330,000,000 people.

It is time for a peaceful, voluntary decentralization and completely dismantle the totalitarian central planning Leviathan apparatus in Washington that has already destroyed, impoverished and murdered many, many lives.

Here is a video thread of Carla Gericke speaking on behalf of New Hampshire secession. (It might take a little time for each video to load. There should be a total of 4 videos.)

News, Information You Won’t Get from CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, NYSlimes, WashPest, etc.

Why do people still read and listen to the mainstream “news” media outlets, when such nudniks are really just unthinking government spokespeople, repeating word for word what government bureaucrats tell them, without question? I can’t believe that there are people who still take seriously government-propaganda outlets CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, NYSlimes, and WashPest.

The “liberal” media suppress the truth in favor of government lies, they love the CIA and hate Julian Assange, they love the FBI and hate freedom of speech. They love the State, in other words.

The “news” media promote virtue-signaling garbs and suffocation devices known as face masks that make people sick, promote experimental “vaccines” that are killing and injuring tens of thousands of people, and media actively aid and abet bureaucrats in Covid lies. Truth is no longer on the mainstream “news” media agenda.

Old Post on “Common Core Police State”

I was recently reminded of this post I did in September of 2013 and that I reposted one other time. There have been several things recently that reminded me of this post. So, I will repost it again.

Obama’s “Common Core”: Part of the Increasing Police State of Amerika

September 22, 2013

I recently brought up some very crazy events at some schools which were a part of Obama’s educational diktats, known as Common Core. This is very nutty stuff, it’s beyond merely “irrational.”

And now, as Activist Post reports, a meeting with Maryland school teachers and administrators on Common Core included a Q&A session for parents and PTA members. However, the questions were to be submitted to the controllers in advance, much like the Presidential debate controllers do when they take questions from audience members. Alas, just as with the political party debate controllers, the school meeting controllers went on to pick and choose which questions to read or answer and which to omit.

One problem had been with the Maryland schools’ administrators intentionally not informing parents of the Common Core curriculum for three whole years since they decided to implement it. Many parents had legitimate questions, including how information about students will be collected and where it will be stored, and whether there is a way for parents to opt out.

The question as to whether parents can opt out was not answered. What a shocking development.

Of course you can’t opt out! This is public schools, after all! (In case you didn’t know, in modern Amerikan dialect, “public” really means “fascist.”)

And at that meeting which consisted of about 160 people including the Baltimore County Superintendent who censored out the tough questions, another parent with a question (which was not answered) decided to stand up and ask his question anyway. He was cordially escorted out by a government-employed police thug, no big surprise there.

According to Activist Post,

One parent, Robert Small, very respectfully tried to voice his concerns and was shut out from participating when a policeman forcefully removed him from the auditorium.

“I want to know how many parents here are aware that the goal of the Common Core standards isn’t to prepare kids for full-fledged universities, it’s to prepare them for community college,” explained Small before he was approached by security.

Small went on to warn the residents that they have a right to a proper debate on what’s best for their own community and they shouldn’t be dictated to by bureaucrats.

“Parents, take control. We’re sick of this. This is not a CNN political game. This is a public town hall … Listen, don’t stand for this. You’re sitting here like cattle. You have questions. Confront them. They don’t want to do it in public … Parents, you need to question these people…Do the research, it’s online.”

Mr. Small went on to ask about Common Core’s apparent goal of “lowering educational standards.” While he was being made to leave by a goon with “Security” on his shirt, a lady in the audience pointed out that the controllers were reading only the “softball” questions, which they obviously were.

Here via Activist Post is the video of that:

You see, the bureaucrats who rule over us do not like it when their diktats are challenged, and when their precious little fiefdoms are disturbed in any way. They do not like it when the emperor is revealed to have no clothes or when Toto pulls the curtain away from the “Wizard.” Especially when we have a One-Party State ruled by Emperor Obama with all his little minions and flunkies carrying out his Soviet-like orders. In this case of Common Core, the orders are to “lower educational standards,” to make 3 x 4 = 11, and to teach the kids that “Obama is good,” but liberty is bad.

With the above video, I was reminded of another video of the Internet-famous lady at the Quartzsite, Arizona City Council meeting who was attempting to bring up the questionable rules that were made but never voted on by the Council, and a questionable tax as well, before she was cordially escorted out of the meeting room by police goons.

And here is that video:

I think these sorts of things will be happening more and more now, particularly involving meetings which will discuss the collapsing of Supreme Court rubber-stamped ObamaCareless. In contrast, many town hall meetings back in 2009 and 2010 seemed to be cordial and polite (except for this one, though), with the people being allowed to exercise their right to peacefully assemble, their right to speak and their right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” as the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution clearly states.

But, as Amerika continues its descent into chaos and turmoil, under the increasing tyranny of dictators and all the little wannabe dictators of local school committees and city councils, we will see less and less civility, mainly on the part of those who are employed by the government, while the civilians who want to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances” will have themselves forcibly removed from meetings and protests.

As Arthur Silber noted just recently, most people go along with the group, no matter how wrong the group is morally or practically, because they were raised to go along as a means of getting approval from others. The ones who merely go along with the group even when the group is wrong are cowards, obviously.

So, as Amerika descends, the majority who love the Rulers and who depend on the Rulers for handouts, from the welfare and food stamp people to the military contractors and their defenders in the government media, will stifle those who defend themselves from government’s intrusions, from police abuse, and who believe in freedom of choice in health care and who believe in the rule of law.

I will not get into the other areas in which we have seen police acting unlawfully and criminally. However, the most recent example was a September 17th protest of Gen David Petraeus, the schmoozing Presidential wannabe, at CUNY in New York City, the city that never thinks. Police charged protesters from the sidewalk onto the street so police could have the excuse to unlawfully arrest at least 6 protesters. In this video provided by the U.K. Guardian, one protester who was already on the ground and totally restrained (and obviously not a threat) was repeatedly punched in the ribs by a cowardly cop. Naturally, the coward here will not be arrested and probably not even fired or disciplined in any serious way.

I have addressed the issue of why civilians should be armed and the government should not be armed here, and more recently here (although I may not have put it in such a way in those two posts). And Judge Andrew Napolitano has addressed related issues here.

Now for those police or otherwise government-employed armed security out there, when things get bad especially when there is economic collapse, and Emperor Obama orders some kind of overt martial law (on top of the already existing unofficial martial law we have now), whose side will you be on? Will you take the defense of the people and their freedom? Or will you obey Obama’s (and governors’) unlawful orders to arrest or detain innocent people who are merely exercising their rights to freedom of speech and self-defense? Will you unlawfully and unconstitutionally confiscate guns? Computers? Laptops? Hmmm?

However, you “LEOs” out there have sworn an oath to obey the Constitution which is the law of the land. It is certainly imperfect, but an important part of it is the Bill of Rights. And morally, ethically, and legally you are more obligated to obey the law than you are obligated to obey commanding officers including the President, especially when they give unlawful orders. I addressed that issue here in my article on martial law.

For instance, regarding the security goon there in the first video of the Common Core meeting, government-employed (and taxpayer-funded) security should have protected the parent’s right to speak and his right to “petition the Government for a redress of grievances,” and to get his questions answered by the panel there. Instead, in the name of “order” or “following the rules of the event” (i.e. only allowing softball questions to be answered), the government-employed and taxpayer-funded security employee enforced the bureaucrats’ censorship of parents who have major issues with this Common Core Crapola.

The purpose of Common Core is not only to lower educational standards, but to continue and further strengthen the 150-year-old tradition of government schools indoctrinating the kids to be obedient serfs and to not question the Rulers. When you dumb the people down, you also are discouraging them to think critically. Anyone who actually thinks critically would probably not approve of a government-controlled education scheme, a government-controlled medical care scheme, or a government-monopolized police system which have all become self-serving bureaucracies of incompetents, power-grabbers, and Nazi-wannabes. I realize some people disagree with me on that, but that has been my conclusion for some time now.

Ron Paul’s book on homeschooling, The School Revolution: A New Answer for Our Broken Education System couldn’t have come at a better time. And it is informative even for those who do not homeschool their kids.

To close, here are some uplifting videos, certainly more uplifting than those posted above. The first one is attorney KrisAnne Hall of the Tenth Amendment Center (I think the discussion was on gun control.):

And this other video includes KrisAnne Hall, with further remarks by Stephani Scruggs:

NYC Elections, and the Truth about “Ranked Choice” Voting

I don’t really know that much about the New York City mayoral election going on now. Apparently there have been some screw-ups and this “ranked-choice” voting supposedly is involved in some way.

In ranked choice voting, allegedly, if the top vote getter doesn’t get over 50% of the votes, then voters have stated who their second choice would be, and it goes on from there to intentionally confuse the voters, as that is one tactic of the cheaters out there in order to get their candidate who did not win, to win.

But the truth is, when you have the candidate who received the most number of votes but not over 50%, the rest of the candidates together are not the equivalent of a single candidate opposing that top vote-getter. The rest of the candidates are all individual candidates. They are not a collective group that equals one opponent to the top vote-getter. That just is not the case and it shouldn’t be the case. Yet, that is really what the “ranked choice” proponents seem to be implying. There is no legitimate reason to have to get over 50% of the votes!

Now, here is a legitimate election: the one who receives the most number of votes wins. And that’s it. You don’t have to get 50% or more. Just get the most number of votes. Duh. You can have many candidates, and the top vote-getter gets something less than 50% like 39% for sake of discussion, but the other candidates all received less than that candidate’s 39% and did not get as many votes as that candidate. Whoever gets the most number of votes is the winner. And that’s the legitimate way to do elections. Anything else is a bunch of made-up crap to confuse people, like a Common Core version of voting, in order for cheaters to get around the requirement of receiving the most number of votes, to steal an election.

And that’s what I have to say about that. Now, as far as New York City is concerned, if I lived in New York any candidate who wants to decentralize the city, i.e. to break it into separate independent cities, for example to have a City of Manhattan, a City of Queens, a City of Brooklyn, and so on, would probably get my vote. (And each new city can further decentralize into separate independent neighborhoods, etc., etc.) And further, any candidate who wants to repeal or just not enforce all drug laws, gun laws, selling individual cigarettes laws, sugary drinks laws, taxi medallion laws, all zoning laws, and most other laws and regulations that violate property rights and individual liberty, would probably get my vote.
