Feinstein's true goal is to completely disarm ALL American citizens

"If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them . . . Mr. and Mrs. America, turn 'em all in, I would have done it." -- Senator Diane Feinstein, CBS-TV, 60 Minutes, 5 February 1995.

The "Assault Weapons" ban of 1994 wasn't good enough for Comerade Feinstein then, and the latest incarnation won't be in 2013.

These Progressives will stop at nothing in their drive toward the ultimate goal;

total disarmament of the American population.

Sic semper tyrannis



First they will confiscate our guns, then........

"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward." — Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

An American Epidemic

I worked for over 20 years in the ER.
Not just 1 ER, but 2 of the largest in East TN, simultaneously for most of that time.

I can tell you I've seen dozens and dozens, probably hundreds, of extreme psychiatric cases during my career. I have definitely seen hundreds of people come in for various minor/moderate psych problems, the overwhelming majority of whom were being managed not by Psychiatrists or even Psychologists, but by regular medical Doctors with little to no business doing so.
We saw that every single day.
Every single day.


Because the Psych system is absolutely overwhelmed with cases.
There is so few inpatient psych beds that exist in this country, and particularly this area, I would say it was a joke, except that it isn't. It's a shame, a tragic problem that's existed for many years, but is now at an epidemic level.

So, people go to their regular Doc, and tell them their problems, and the Dr just writes them a script for one of the antidepressant, antianxiety, even antipsychotic meds that are out there, even though they have no real expertise in identifying people who have true clinical psychiatric processes going on. Many of them do it because they know these patients cannot get psych care.

Many times these people are on combinations of medications that actually 'work against one another' so to speak, and can cause unwanted psych symptoms themselves.

Listen to the TV commercials disclaimer on virtually all psych meds--they themselves can cause thoughts of, if not actual suicide and/or violent behaviors and personality changes.

Do I really want my Internal Medicine Dr. or Family Medicine Dr. prescribing me these meds? Do you?

Folks, the fact is that there is an epidemic of mammoth proportions going on in this country.
Untreated/undertreated/poorly treated mental illness has been on the rise for a good number of years.
There is little if any real treatment going on, because there just isn't enough inpatient facilities, and woefully little outpatient treatment either.

I cannot tell you how frustrated it feels to have a guy brought into the ER, who was waiting at home to kill his wife & kids, (his statement to me) but they knew something was wrong & wife called cops. Cops get to the house, they had to talk down, he had the barrel of a 30-06 RIFLE IN HIS MOUTH. They talk him down, bring him to the ER.
We do the protocol; alcohol/drug screen, etc. He of course has a psych history, depression, being medicated by his regular MD, with some outpatient treatment. They just have him in counseling, he goes about 2/3 of the time, diagnosis is major depression.
Gets into a spat with wife, decides to kill her & the kids (his statement to me). Thankfully, this time it was avoided.
He gets to the ER, and is going back and forth between anger & hyper-calm (bad sign). We have security on him of course, but the cops have as usual left him there with us-suicide/attempted is a crime, but they never, ever prosecute.
Anyway, we get him evaluated by psych, which takes hours.
They decide he needs to go to the ONLY local psych facility that takes unstable, violent patients. Well, they're full, and the Dr. there is giving us all kinds of grief. Bottom line, they agree to evaluate him and admit if they think he needs it.
Finally, we get him transported by the police to the facility. Cop arrives at psych hospital, and is met at the door by the Dr., who tells him not to leave, so he can take him back if they don't admit him.
They don't admit him.
The cop brings him back to us, and leaves him.
So, we get another eval on him, and finally get him admitted to an inpatient facility north of us, about 2 hours away.
This entire episode lasted over 12 hours from the time he first set foot in the ER.
He was "stabilized" and released after several days.
Upon his return home, his wife & kids had left the house.
Guy sets his house on fire, and shoots himself.

That was over just one case, over 10 years ago, and is but one of dozens and dozens, of stories I could tell, some with happier endings, most with tragic ends.

TELL ME the system isn't broke, I'll call you a fool to your face.

We  Americans have created this monster ourselves, with our systemic, liberalistic, 'everybody's a victim', 'everybody's entitled', "there's a pill for that" attitudes.

The fact is that some people are indeed mentally ill enough to need to be removed from the society they endanger.

I have seen many that I wish had been removed.
A lot of them committed suicide, many of them committed murder, a fair number of whom had been treated for mental illness, but allowed to walk among us.

There are far more of them out there than you know, or wish to know about. How long do we allow them to endanger the rest of us?

If my saying that offends anyone, I am sorry that you find it offensive, but I have seen more up close cases of people who are a danger to themselves and/or others than you have, unless you either work in mental health, or have been where I've been, worked where I worked.

Our society is broken.

Our mental health system is broken.

Evil is at play .

I guess the answer is that politicians will give speeches, and try to ban tools.
The media will try to sensationalize the events to swell their ratings.

Neither of these are in any way solutions to the situation, but it's all we're likely to get.

Not just our guns--"Preppers" also about to come under attack

turns out Adam Lanza's mother wasn't a teacher, and had absolutely no connection to the school.

In other words, the media was reporting wildly, putting out every rumor that was on the ground.

Now, they're painting the Mom as a 'prepper', and 'survivalist', calling her 'gun-crazed'.

It's not just our guns they're going to demonize and attack.

Pay attention to the "Arms in the US; Figures that add up to tragedy" at the end of the article.

Guns, Preparedness--equally evil in the eyes of the Progressives

China: School attacker uses knife in Dec. 2011 attack on children

December 2011; China- man uses knife to injure 22 in school attack 

BEIJING (Reuters) - A knife-wielding man slashed 22 children and an adult at an elementary school in central China on Friday, state media reported, the latest in a series of attacks on schoolchildren in the country. 
The man attacked the children at the gate of a school in Chenpeng village in Henan province, the Xinhua news agency reported. 
Police arrested a 36-year-old man, identified as villager Min Yingjun, Xinhua said. It did not give further details of the extent of the injuries. 
There have been a series of attacks on schools and schoolchildren around China in recent years, some by people who have lost their jobs or felt left out of the country's economic boom.
The rash of violence has prompted public calls for more measures to protect the young in a country where many couples only have one child. 
In 2010, a man slashed 28 children, two teachers and a security guard in a kindergarten in eastern China.


Folks, this is yet another example that evil is on a rampage all over the world.
It is certainly not new, nor is it unique to the United States.

Folks, any reasonable thinking person knows that if a madman decides to kill, they'll use whatever tool they can lay hands on.
If not a gun, then a knife, or a ball bat, or a hammer. They'll use which ever tool they can do the most damage with.
If the Progressives succeed in disarmament of private law abiding citizens, the nutcases and criminals will still use guns, or course, and will resort to using whatever they have to to carry out their evil ways.

It's not about an inanimate object.
Any tool, be it a gun, knife, or hammer, none of them can kill unless wielded by a human hand controlled by a mind willing to commit the act.

Therein lies the problem.



Dem. lawmaker: To get gun control, Obama must 'exploit' shooting

Dem. lawmaker: To get gun control, Obama must 'exploit' shooting - Washington Times

"....Mr. Nadler was asked whether the Newtown tragedy could be the turning point in many Democrats’ longstanding struggle to enact stronger gun laws.
“I think we will be there if the president exploits it, and otherwise we’ll go on to the next” incident, said Mr. Nadler....."

Buckle up, folks, they're going on a media/Congressional/White House blitzkrieg to take away our 2nd Amendment rights.

This may well prove to be President Obama's Reichstag fire. 



Obama and his minions WILL use this tragedy to come after legally owned guns

First and foremost, let me make this perfectly clear; Yesterday's mass murder is one of the most hideous things I have ever known to have happened in my lifetime. The animal that perpetrated it should have just shot himself, and saved the entire nation a world of grief. I grieve for their loved ones and pray the dead knew Jesus as their Savior. However, in the United States of America as it exists today, this event today will not be allowed for long to remain about the horrific murders of these poor children and school employees by a madman. Oh, no. The leftist media and politicians are about to use this horrific slaughter to target you and I--otherwise known as the more than 47% of American adults that legally own guns who haven't murdered anyone. Yes, I fully believe that the government is about to launch an attack on gun ownership, aided by their state-run media outlets, the likes of which has never been seen. They'll use the images of the poor children we all have seen and are still seeing on the news today as ammunition, and will of course hearken back to the Columbines, Virginia Techs, Fort Hoods, and Auroras to smash their point home; The only way to prevent gun crime is to "control" gun ownership. Of course, they'll completely ignore the facts, and focus on the emotions. They'll fail to point out the fact that even though millions upon millions of adults legally own guns, these episodes are comparatively rare, given the sheer numbers that legally own or have access to firearms in the United States. They'll completely ignore the number of people killed in automobile accidents each year, which dwarfs gun deaths by 32,885 (wikipedia 2010) to 8.755 (FBI stats 2010) As a matter of fact, in 2008, the American Foundation for Suicide prevention reports there were 38,364 reported suicides in the US. Yes, these murders are unspeakably evil, but then so are the creatures that perpetrate them. Instead of pointing the crooked finger at the dozens of millions of us who would never dream of harming anyone else with a weapon unless it were a matter of self defense, perhaps these misguided people need to be trying to devise ways of identifying those among us who turn into murderous monsters. Of course, that won't happen. Obama will continue to wipe at nonexistent tears, Congress will pass more restrictive gun laws that only hurt legal gun owners, and the media will paint us all as "gun nuts". And after they all pat themselves on the back for having made the world a better and safer place "for the children", some other monster will do it again. It's about evil, people, not guns. And there is far more evil in the world than there will ever be guns.
