‘Duck Dynasty’ Star: ‘It Ain’t Gun Control We Need, It’s Sin Control’

Leave a comment

This is from CBS Houston.

Si Robertson is absoultly right is his observations about sin control.

We have too long being calling evil good and good evil.

It started with condoning premarital sex and illegimate biths.

My condone preversions by calling them alternative lifestyles.

We need to start calling a sin a sin.

Isaiah 5:20

King James Version (KJV)

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

WEST MONROE, La. (CBS Houston) — One “Duck Dynasty” star made his stance on gun control known in an interview with Men’s Journal.

“It ain’t gun control we need, it’s sin control,” Si Robertson said.

In a wide-ranging interview with Men’s Journal, the man known as Uncle Si described how he used to be a “sinner” during his younger days when he was drafted into the Army and heading off to Vietnam.

“I kept a fifth of whiskey in my pocket everywhere I went,” he said. “I tried dope one time, okay, like marijuana, but why would you smoke something that makes you feel 100 years old? So, drugs wasn’t it for me. In my mind, it was alcohol and whoring around.”

Robertson said he was worried about the pedestal the family has been put on since the reality show took off.

“Look, I worry that people put us on a pedestal now,” he told Men’s Journal. “We’re human beings. We make mistakes just like everybody else.”

Robertson rattled off a story about how two dozen people showed up on his property banging on his door.

“The other night, it’s 12:03 in the morning, and somebody is knocking on the door, and I’m like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’ and I look outside and there’s 25 people standing in my yard,” he said. “You know, He’s the reason this show has gone on like it has, but I have to ask Him every day, ‘Give me strength to deal with this.’”

The Robertson family has stood up for gun rights before – Phil and Kay Robertson headlined a Friends of NRA event in Oklahoma earlier this month, according to The Enid News.

The Obama administration has been vigorously fighting for gun control since last December’s Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn. where gunman Adam Lanza killed 26, including 20 children, before taking his own life.

The A&E reality show has been a ratings juggernaut as the Season 4 premiere was watched by 11.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched nonfiction series telecast in the history of cable television .

McDonald’s new McDress-code: Pull up your pants

Leave a comment

This is from Bizpac Review.

 

God Bless Texas for making this call.

Nobody wants to see Obama‘s sons with their drawers down or even

Obama sons want to be’s.

If you run around in prison with your pants like this it means your available.

 

McDonalds droopy pants

Don’t mess with Texas – and pull up your pants. Two Houston-area McDonald’s obtained permission from corporate headquarters to post a sign warning patrons to dress properly.

Pull your pants up or don’t come in. Try to have some decency and respect for others. No one wants to see your underwear,” the sign reads, according to Click2Houston.com, the website for the Houston NBC  affiliate, KPRC.

Most customers interviewed by the TV station approved.

“I think it’s necessary, honestly,” one customer told KPRC on a video of the newscast. “I think it’s indecent exposure. They have the right to serve any customer they want there, just their business, on their own. They have the right to serve any customer they choose.”

“Nobody wants to see your undergarment,” another woman said in the video. “That’s what I think. Honestly, my thing is, they’re not wrong.”

But one man said it should be up to customers to choose what they wear.

“I guess having your pants too low is in bad taste, but it’s a matter of choice,” he said. “If you want to wear your pants that way, so be it.”

 

‘Duck Dynasty’ Star: Show Adding ‘Fake Bleeps’ Despite No Cursing

1 Comment

This is from CBS Houston,Tx.

Why add bleeps to fool people into believing someone swore?

Who are the producers trying not to offend the Muslims or Atheist by

bleeping out the name of Jesus?

I say piss on both groups.

 

 

MONROE, La. (CBS Houston) — Popular A&E reality show “Duck Dynasty” continues to smash competition in the ratings on Wednesday nights, but one star has spoken out about how the show is portrayed.

In an interview with Sports Spectrum TV earlier this year that’s only recently gone viral, Phil Robertson admitted that fake bleeps were inserted into the show even though there was no cursing happening.

“The inserted fake bleeps … like somebody had used profanity, but no one had used profanity,” Robertson said. “I ask those guys that produce the show … ‘What’s the point of the fake bleeps?’”

Robertson admitted that there are up to 20 editors who are “arranging the scenes” on the show so they might think that’s where cursing likely happened.

“Of course these people probably thought that there was some profanity going on which there was zero,” Robertson stated. “If we’re not using profanity, why make it look like we’re using profanity? What is the point? Why don’t you just run it and say what we say?”

Robertson also said that the name Jesus has been cut out during the family’s prayer scene at the end of the show.

“So they would just have me saying, ‘Thank you Lord for the food, thank you for loving us. Amen.’ So I said, ‘Why would you cut out ‘In Jesus’ name?’ They said, ‘Well those editors are probably doing that. They just think that they don’t want to offend some of the Muslims or something.’”

Robertson said that since that conversation the show has been leaving “Jesus” in the show.

“So I notice now they are … leaving it in there, but you got to remember, spiritual warfare,” Robertson said. “I mean you have people with no moral compass, it ain’t there.”

“Duck Dynasty” has been a smash hit for A&E, garnering 11.8 million viewers for the Season Four premiere.

The Robertsons’ Duck Commander business is located in West Monroe, La.

 

Zimmerman verdict sparks interest in insurance programs that defend gun owners

Leave a comment

This is from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Having this insurance is a good idea.

You could lose every thing if you use your firearm. 

The Florida acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager who Zimmerman said he shot in self-defense, has resulted in a surge of business for a Texas company that insures gun owners.

“People who have seen what happened to Zimmerman began to consider their own circumstances and asked how would their life be affected if something like that happened to them,” said attorney Edwin Walker, co-founder of Texas Law Shield.

Texas Law Shield, a Houston-based company that provides legal representation for gun owners who act in self-defense, charges members a base monthly fee of $11 to advise them during police investigations and represent them at trial. The four-year-old company has a 24-hour hotline to assist its more than 70,000 Texas members if they have questions about the state’s self-defense laws, Walker said.

“There are about half-a-dozen crimes where a person can be charged if they simply display or discharge their weapon,” Walker said. “You don’t have to shoot someone to get in trouble.”

Mark Walters, a spokesman for the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) and host of the Armed American radio show, said interest in the company’s services has “phones ringing off the hook,” in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict.

The USCCA offers coverage to gun owners through its Self-Defense Shield plan. The platinum plus package provides $500,000 to gun owners who have to settle or pay any civil claims that arise from self defense gun uses. USCCA has about 60,000 members, Walters said.

“If someone’s carrying a firearm and they have to display or discharge their weapon and it is reported to police, they should anticipate charges being brought,” Walters said. “If you make a decision to carry a weapon, you should consider taking out one of these types of policies.”

Weapon offenses for displaying or carrying a weapon can range from aggravated assault to deadly or disorderly conduct to unlawfully carrying a weapon by a license holder. Self-defense investigations can be life-altering. Darrell Schooler said it took less than two seconds to make the decision to fire his weapon, but it took weeks for him to get out of jail while authorities sorted through the details.

Schooler, 47, of Fort Worth, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after shooting at a man outside a Fort Worth nightclub on Aug. 6, 2011, Tarrant County district clerk records said. Schooler was released after posting a $7,500 bond, according to Tarrant County jail records.

His attacker hit his car window three times with his fist and the butt of his gun before Schooler pulled his weapon and fired, shattering the car window. The man was surprised by the flying glass and shot himself in the arm, Schooler said. Schooler was no-billed by the grand jury on March 20, 2012, district clerk records show.

Attorneys from Texas Law Shield represented Schooler during the investigation. Representation was free with the exception of Schooler’s monthly premiums.

“This is insurance I thought I’d never have to use,” Schooler said. “Without it, I’d probably be in jail for something I didn’t do. God was with me that day. If I had leaned an inch-and-a-half to the left, I wouldn’t be talking to you now. That’s how close I came to getting my head blown off.”

The United States Bureau of Justice Statistics special report released in May concluded that an average of 67,740 gun owners used their weapon in self-defense annually during a five-year period between 2007 and 2011.

Texas husband shoots 2 bank robbers that abducted him, his wife, police say

Leave a comment

This is from Fox News.

This husband from Texas shows why every American needs to be

able to carry a firearm if they can legally do so.

The score is a Good Guy with a gun- 1 Two Stupid Bad Guys with a gun- 0.

One of the bad guys became a Darwin Award Winner.

Sadly the other one may not win the Darwin Award yet.

 

 

COLUMBUS, Texas –  Authorities say a Houston-area man turned the tables on two bank robbery suspects who had abducted him and his wife by pulling a gun on the unsuspecting duo and shooting them both, killing one of them.

The suspects apparently knew that the woman worked at the First National Bank of Eagle Lake in Columbus, and they abducted her and her husband at gunpoint at their residence north of the city on Thursday and drove them back to the bank, Columbus County Sheriff’s Sgt. Andrew Weido told Houston television station KHOU.

The suspects forced the woman to taken an undisclosed amount of money from the bank, then forced the husband to drive them in his truck down Highway 71, Weido said. It was then that the husband grabbed a gun that was in the truck and fired at the suspects, he said.

Officers who responded to a 911 call found both suspects lying on the ground near the truck suffering from gunshot wounds. They were taken to different hospitals, where one of them was pronounced dead. The other suspect remained hospitalized in critical condition Friday. Columbus County authorities didn’t respond to calls for comment Saturday.

Investigators didn’t disclose the couple’s names or say how much money the woman was forced to take from the bank. Investigators have not released the name of the couple or how much money they were forced to take out.

Those who know the couple said that the community has their back.

“I’m sure that they’re both going to be upset for a while,” resident Brenda Buehler said. “It’s a frightening thing to have happen, but I think everybody’s going to tell them good job.”

How to Arm the Citizenry

Leave a comment

This is from National Review Online.

This is a great project more are needed nation wide.

I hate to think how much BS these people have had tossed at them.

 

The Armed Citizen Project aims to train and equip citizens who need the Second Amendment most.

Armed Citizen Project founder Kyle Coplen

Kyle Coplen may not be a sidesaddle gunslinger — the 29-year-old got his master’s in public administration from the University of Houston this spring — but he can handle a weapon. And he is working to make sure you can, too.

Coplen is the founder and head of the Armed Citizen Project (ACP), a Houston-based nonprofit that trains single women and residents of crime-ridden neighborhoods in firearms use — and then arms them. It’s a small-scale effort so far, but Coplen has lofty targets. ACP aims to arm citizens in 15 cities nationwide by the end of 2013, hoping to collect in the process valuable data about the effects of gun ownership on crime rates.

He was one of the many Houston locals who lent a hand when 93-year-old World War II veteran Elbert Wood returned home from a doctor’s appointment in January to find his home vandalized. “I started to think about what we as a society could do to deter home-invasion crimes,” Coplen says. He found the answer in the Second Amendment. The result will be, he hopes, a wave of “new, responsible gun owners.”

Emphasis on “responsible.” Contra those who suggest that ACP is doling out guns on the street corner, the organization has two requirements: All participants must pass any background checks required by law, and they must successfully complete ACP’s three-part training course. In the first part (“Legal”), they learn about relevant gun laws, the difference between force and deadly force, the castle doctrine, and more. In the second (“Safety”), participants are taught how to store their weapons and how to prevent accidents; they are provided with a coded lock to use if they wish. In the third part (“Tactical”), participants learn how to handle their weapons and receive one-on-one instruction at a gun range. The ACP then gives each graduate of the course a pump-action shotgun, along with a box of shells and time on the practice range.

And it’s all free. Coplen estimates that, start to finish, the whole process costs approximately $300 per person — but private donations to ACP cover it all. Donors cover the financial costs of the program and also provide firearms that can be reused or sold to raise cash. “We’re redistributing power,” says Coplen. “It’s Biden’s love of shotguns with Obama’s love of redistribution. It transcends politics.”

But Coplen realizes that his organization — 20 volunteers in Houston, 200 nationwide — is stepping into a political crossfire. Gun violence in Aurora, Newtown, and elsewhere motivated the Obama administration’s ill-fated gun-control push earlier this year, as well as several states’ more successful legislation When Coplen began the project, he assumed that ACP’s chief function would be removing the cost barrier for those who could not afford guns. “I couldn’t have been more wrong,” he says now. “The biggest thing we’re actually doing is facilitating the whole process” of acquiring weapons, which some states have made very difficult indeed.

But there are “misconceptions,” says Coplen, recalling ACP trainees who asked about a “National Gun Registry” and other hoop-jumping they thought would be necessary to arm themselves. “Folks believe it’s harder than it is to exercise their Second Amendment rights.” As a testament to ACP’s success in removing the “mystique” that all too often surrounds guns, up to half of the participants, Coplen estimates, tell him at the beginning of the training that they do not plan to accept the graduation gift of a shotgun; only one person has actually turned the weapon down after finishing.

Moreover, many have finished the program and decided to expand their armory beyond the  shotgun, or apply for a concealed-handgun license. “We’re arming folks with a gateway gun,” Coplen likes to say. People prize “the feeling of empowerment that comes with being able to protect your life, liberty, and property.”

Pump-action shotguns are pretty good at providing that feeling. They’re an excellent choice for home defense, says Coplen: reliable, cost-effective, and easy to learn how to use. They also are effective for exploding one prominent pro-gun-control talking point: “Piers Morgan and people like him often say they’re only against assault weapons. But if they want to come out against ACP, they must reveal that they are really against the Second Amendment totally.”

Coplen also observes that ACP is taking up a role in the supposed “war on women.” They kicked off in March by arming ten single mothers, and although ACP is currently working to arm a particular neighborhood, single women from all over are eligible to apply to participate, and they’ll be included on a case-by-case basis. Coplen explains that arming women takes precedence over arming neighborhoods, saying, “We’re fighting the liberal war on women one free shotgun at a time.”

As for its neighborhood initiative, ACP has armed 35 residents in Houston’s Oak Forest area — where last year police instructed residents to stay indoors after dusk — and it hopes to arm between 50 and 100, a goal that Coplen says is within easy reach. The plan, then, is to put up signs throughout the neighborhood warning criminals of “increased risk of physical harm.” “We want criminals to know that, if they come into this neighborhood, they are playing Russian roulette with their lives.” He says that Houston law enforcement has been “overwhelmingly supportive,” and he hopes for more input from those on the beat: “I will listen to what any officer on the ground wants to tell me.”

The organization plans to train and arm citizens in 15 cities by the end of the year, including Chicago and New York, known for their particularly stringent gun laws. New York City requires a city-approved gun permit, and investigators can deny them on grounds ranging from an arrest record to a “lack [of] character.” Moreover, if prospective gun owners can get through the permitting process, they still face daunting expenses: New York City charges $140 for a shotgun permit plus a $91.50 fingerprinting charge.

None of this is deterring ACP. “[Chicago mayor] Rahm Emmanuel and [New York City mayor] Michael Bloomberg have overstepped their bounds,” says Coplen, citing both mayors’ vehement anti-gun positions. He thinks private donations could cover New York City’s exorbitant fees, and he is even confident that ACP could win a legal battle against either city, if it came to that.

But Coplen is not interested in simply irking gun controllers, or securing individual neighborhoods, for that matter. Behind the unyielding Second Amendment advocate lurks a social scientist, who is hoping that future data on crime rates in the coming years will show that more guns do, in fact, mean less crime.

He has even received assistance from a famous proponent of that thesis, economist John Lott, who tells National Review Online that he thinks Coplen is onto something: “It is interesting to see how [ACP’s project] contrasts with the Obama administration and the Democrats.” Liberal policy in recent years, Lott observes, has been to impose ever-increasing taxes and fees on prospective gun owners, which “means that poor people are the ones who get priced out of getting to guns for protection” — exactly the demographic most in need of protection. Coplen believes those policies are doing more harm than good, and he is confident that the project’s findings will prove the merits of the opposite policies.

In the meantime, criminals and Second Amendment foes beware. The Armed Citizen Project is on patrol.

New Poll Shows England Wants Its Guns Back

This is from Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership.

It seems our brethren across the pond are tried

It took them a while but the people of England finally woke up.

Will Americans wake up before they lose their guns?.

Is England the model for “popular” gun control?

The United Kingdom is often held up as a successful example of gun control by those on the left. But a recent poll by the Daily Telegraph, one of England’s most widely-read publications, shows Britons themselves are far from sold on the laws.

In a poll asking readers what laws they would like to see introduced or changed, an overwhelming number of voters chose “repeal the ban on hand guns and re-open shooting clubs.”

“After all, why should only criminals be ‘allowed’ to possess guns and shoot unarmed, defenceless citizens and police officers?” reader Colliemum wrote.

Here is a screen shot of the results, as of TheBlaze article’s publication:

(Photo: The Daily Telegraph)

In a far second place came the choice for a flat tax, at 7.59% combined to 84.53% who want to repeal the ban on handguns.

The United Kingdom passed some of the strictest gun control laws in the world in 1997 after 16 children were killed in Dunblane, England. Gun crime sharply increased in the subsequent years, doubling by 2007, according to British government crime reports.

Doctor Hotze VS. ObamaCare

Leave a comment

This is from Joe For America.

Dr.Steve Hotze will be in for some major abuse from the left.

More Doctors need to follow Dr.Hotze’s example.

We can slowly win the battle against Obamacare.

This is important: America needs a hero, and the Doctor is In.

To prevent the enforcement of the Affordable Care Act in Texas, Dr. Steve Hotze, a Houston physician announced he is suing the federal government, claiming the ACA violates federal tax law as written.

health-care-reform-unconstitutional-01The suit claims that ObamaCare radically hikes small-business costs, impoverishes states and violates the plain language of the U.S. Constitution.

The lawsuit was filed Tuesday in Houston, Texas. The case is Hotze v. Sebelius, 4:13-cv-1318, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Texas (Houston).

Although the Supreme Court ruled the bill to be Constitutional, the majority opinion offered new hope for the majority of Americans who want it repealed. Some background:

In June of 2012 The Supreme Court upheld most of the bill commonly known as “ObamaCare” as being Constitutional, but Justice John Roberts, writing the majority opinion went out of his way to say that the program was in fact a tax and not the Supreme Court’s business.

Everyone across the spectrum reacted emotionally to the ruling. Liberals cheering their unlikely Supreme Court hero, and frustrated conservatives, who thought ObamaCare was on the way out derided the Justice — some even labeling Roberts a “traitor,” and a “coward.”

But the opinion has opened the door to another Constitutional challenge, which will also highlight the way the bill was rammed through Congress. At the time, Nancy Pelosi (not that she read it) was not treating it like a tax and since ObamaCare did not originate in the House. Justice Roberts defining the bill as a tax meant he was throwing it back into the water for a do-over. In a nutshell, to correctly challenge the law, it must be challenged as the tax that it now is.

Was Roberts more concerned with protecting Americans from Big Government interpretations of the Commerce Clause? Was he giving a wink and a nod to the States that they need to be protected from that same ever-growing, and overreaching federal government? In any event, Justice Roberts wrote the Supreme Court ruling, talked a gaggle of liberal justices into signing onto it, and made the whole thing look non-partisan in the process.

Roberts refused to legislate from the bench. He threw the matter back to the legislature that is responsible for empowering legislation. Roberts knew Obamacare was unconstitutional as a tax, but not as it was brought before the Court at the time. He cleverly set the stage for a successful appeal.

And it’s here, thanks to Dr. Steve Hotze

“What we were promised was a new health care policy and change that could be good for all Americans,” Hotze said at the state Capitol, surrounded by Republican legislators. “Really, all it’s turned out to offer us is higher premiums, higher taxes and a government that will allow its bureaucrats to interfere with the doctor-patient relationship.”

His lawsuit offers two constitutional challenges: First, the Affordable Care Act is in clear violation of the rule requiring tax-bills to originate in the House. The original bill if you can believe it, was a tax credit bill for veterans. Secondly, ObamaCare is in violation of the Fifth Amendment by compelling the purchase of health coverage.

It is forcing individuals and businesses to purchase a consumer product — in this case, health insurance.

Hotze’s lawsuit claims that by forcing Americans to buy private insurance, Obamacare violates the Fifth Amendment’s Takings Clause, which holds that private property can only be taken for a “public use” and with just compensation for the property owner.

The suit also claims that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional because revenue-raising laws and taxes must originate in the House of Representatives. In the 5-4 decision upholding Obamacare, Chief Justice John Roberts ruled that the law’s penalty on the uninsured is a tax.

“It is imperative that Texas challenge this unwarranted federal overreach and ensure that Texans maintain the most innovative and economically viable health care system in the country,” he wrote in a statement.

Texas lawmakers may permit concealed handguns on college campuses

Leave a comment

This is from Examiner.com.

It is time to do away with the folly known as Gun Free Zones.

Gun Free Zones equal Target Rich Environments.

To stop a Bad Guy with a Gun is a Good Guy With A Gun.

 

The Texas State House of Representatives on Saturday passed a controversial bill that if signed into law will permit both resident and commuter university and college students to carry concealed firearms if they possess handgun licenses, according to Texas police officials.

 

The proposed law will allow licensed gun owners to carry firearms in classrooms and campus buildings such as dormitories, said Lt. Jonathon Steelmann, a member of Southwest University’s campus police department in nearby Arizona.

“While politicians are uncomfortable with theidea of firearms on campuses, most law enforcement officers believe just the fact that people on campus are armed will serve as a deterrent to everything from spree killings to robberies on college property,” said Lt. Steelmann.

However, the bill, which will likely move to the Senate, would probably allow schools to receive waivers for the legal mandate, according to a report.

Meanwhile on Saturday — which was proclaimed “gun day” by both supporters and opponents of the bill –the Texas House proposed that Texas state officials should vote on a number of bills that would revise and ease gun laws that were already considered some of America‘s most lenient gun-control measures.

Those gun rights expansion bills would allow college students to carry handguns in class, put armed school security officers in elementary and secondary public schools, and exempt Texas from any future federal bans on assault rifles, high-capacity magazines or universal background checks, according to media reports.

The bills were approved as tens of thousands attended the National Rifle Association’s annual conference held this year in the city of Houston.

The Texas legislation adds to the gun-control failures of the left-wing of the Democratic Party. U.S. Senate on April 17 voted down a proposal to expand background checks on gun purchases, dealing a major blow to President Barack Obama and Democrats in Washington, D.C.

By a vote of 54 to 46, the proposal of expanding background checks on gun purchases was short of the 60 votes needed to advance in the Senate.

In the midst of the heated gun-control debate in the nation’s capital, a leading Internet web site — exclusively for federal, state and local law enforcement — released the surprising results of a survey of police professionals from across the U.S. The survey provides revealing insights into the opinions of American law enforcement regarding gun control policies and the root causes of, and potential solutions, to gun crime in the U.S.

The organization that released the survey — PoliceOne.com — conducted the study in early March 2013.

PoliceOne.com officials stated that their research team received 15,000 responses from law enforcement professionals.

The survey answers revealed that the overall attitude of law enforcement is strongly anti-gun legislation and pro-gun rights, with the belief that an armed citizenry is effective in stopping crime.
