You Are Not Above The Law

Remember back in the 2013 post Sandy Hook era? I remember it well. Ammo and firearms flew off the shelves, conspiracies were passed around, and accusations flew back and forth across the pro-rights (pro-gun) and anti-rights (anti-gun) line. A lot can be said about that time, but I want to focus on specific part of that time period.

If you don’t remember, many companies started to put in place new polices where they would refuse to sell items, that are restricted to civilians, to law enforcement officers of those states. One of these several companies was J&T Distributing. You may know J&T better by their other companies they are affiliated with which include DoubleStar Corp and Ace LTD. Ace is a manufacturer of stocks for various weapons.

Here is the statement posted on back on Feb 19 2013 that is still there today. http://riflestocks.com/store/

Due to the recent changes in 2nd Amendment laws that are pending or currently enforced by states across the country, the J&T Family of Companies which includes J&T Distributing, DoubleStar Corp., Ace Limited, and the DoubleStar Training Academy has been forced to reassess our policies regarding government and law enforcement sales. Effective immediately, the J&T Family of Companies will be joining other manufacturers and distributors by ceasing sales of regulated items in states that have altered the rights of citizens to keep and bear arms.

The JTFOC will no longer sell prohibited items to law enforcement agencies or any government agencies in states, counties, cities, and municipalities that have enacted restrictive gun control laws against their law abiding citizens. We hope other companies will join us with their support. We applaud those already involved with this effort to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.

Be Victorious

So I decided to call down to J&T to see how they are doing several years down the road with this policy still in place. I talked to an excellent guy named Nick. He told me about how several law enforcement officers had expressed their displeasure at the policy, but that the response from the private/civilian sector had been overwhelming. I swelled with pride to know that thousands of my fellow patriots had praised and supported this new policy.

Nick also told me how J&T is heavily involved with the NRA, NFA-TCA, and the NSSF. These are all organizations that promote rights, especially gun rights. What I like most about this policy, and the encouragement of  J&T for other companies to follow suit, is that it discourages law enforcement from supporting anti-rights/ anti-gun bills in their respective states. It also denies those items to be purchased to level the playing field.

I am of the opinion that if it’s too dangerous for me to have an item, then I certainly don’t want a law enforcement official to have it roaming around my streets either. This is a nation of free people. We cannot, and should not, be second class citizens to a privileged few who can ride rough shod over us whenever they please. If every company that produces equipment, firearms, and accessories refused to sell those items to law enforcement in places where it’s restricted for civilians to own them, then we would have a lot less of these anti-rights laws passing.

In the long run a few companies here and there will not affect the change we want, but the most important thing to take away from this is that at least they tried. Which is more than most people, and companies can say. When the chips were down, they chose the side of freedom and liberty. We should at least lend our support to these companies for standing up for what is morally correct. And like Nick said to me on the phone “We are real Americans making real American stuff”… for the everyday American. I applaud J&T and hope that they continue to fight the good fight, and I encourage you other manufactures to join companies like J&T to affect positive change in our great nation.

Sen Chris Murphy is Scared of Your Guns

last fuck

Recently Sen Chris Murphey (Conn) stated that those who wanted high-capacity magazine were more interested in “arming against the government”… than hunting. He stated “Think of the damage someone could do in U.S. capital with 30 rounds”. First of all bravo sir for knowing that “rounds” go in a magazine, not bullets.  My praise has to stop there though. Because I have a secret to tell Sen Chris Murphy.

Well it’s not really a secret. I do think about the damage 30 rounds could do in the U.S. capital. That is why I have 75 round drums. “A well regulated militia being necessary to a free state”. We, the people, are the Militia, and we are a necessity to the security of a free state. I own weapons of war because you exist Chris Murphy. I do not bow and scrap before you. You will, and should be, afraid of we the people. Because I am a free and sovereign man of a free nation, and I am not afraid of you and your thugs.

I will stand up and announce to the world that my human rights are not up for negotiation. I can, and should, bear whatever arms I deem necessary to affect my freedom here in this country. If I decide that .50 caliber machine guns need to be mounted on the four corners of my roof in fortified positions is necessary, then it will be so. If I decide to open carry my firearm, then I will. It’s not up to you, or anyone else, to decide how I pursue my freedom.

The only solution to the overreach of our federal government in my estimation is that we need to build a wall. Not a wall along our borders with other countries, a wall around Washington D.C. When a representative is elected they should receive an ankle tracking device, and then a series of artillery batteries mounted along the wall should be constantly tracking their movement. If we had our representatives literally held at gun point, I can guarantee that they would think twice about violating our rights.

Our human rights are not negotiable, your temporary privilege of representing us (Chris Murphy) should be  done under the supervision of your well armed constituents. Now shut  up, and sit down.

King Abdullah II of Jordan

King Abdullah II

Recently the King of Jordan has been thrust into the mainstream news in the United States and worldwide when one of his pilots bombing the terrorist group ISIS was captured and burned alive. The King responded by executing two ISIS prisoners and then leading a bombing run against ISIS positions.

This is an interesting turn of events in the war on Islamic extremists. Jordan is firmly an Islamic state, but also a monarchy. While it is a constitutional monarchy, much like United Kingdom, the regent holds much more legislative power, and is more than a figurehead, unlike the UK. Modern day Jordan was formed around the time Israel was formed as well. Israel beat the pants off of Jordan back during the 6 day war, and after that the regents of Jordan moved towards a much more peaceful and global outlook on their place in the world.

It has really been King Abdullah the II that has brought the modern day Jordan into existence. After attending school in the United States, and The United kingdom, he served in the UK military and special forces. He eventually came home and was put into command of the Jordanian special forces, and brought them into the 21st century. Today they are allies of the west and often train with US special forces.

History lesson aside, it’s interesting how we are today praising the leadership of King Abdullah here in the west. In my estimation of things we have been so accustom to weak and indecisive men like our own president that we crave, and envy true leadership when we see it. Jordan is no where as free as America is, but they deserve some credit for attempting to bring peace to their region and having strong and somewhat benevolent leadership.

I think what we can take away from the leadership of men like King Abdullah and Vladamir Putin is that a strong leader, and no nonsense attitude, is a good thing. However we should also take caution when praising these types of leaders. A strong benevolent leader should always be pushing their people to be more free and responsible for themselves.

So “well played sir”, is what I have to say to King Abdullah. For now I’ll keep my own sovereignty here in America as king of my own tiny kingdom.

Chris Kyle’s Murderer a Muslim Assassin?

ZEddie-Routh

Most of us would agree that the death of Chris Kyle was a tragedy. More than a man that served his country in a very tough job, he was a father, husband, and son. Chris Kyle was helping a young man who had claimed to have PTSD. The young man (Eddie Routh) murdered Chris at a firing range.

It is still unclear as to the motivation behind the murder, but there has been some wild speculation. I am, first of all, for the truth. Good or bad the truth is what will help us as a society to move forward and learn from mistakes and corruption. Fringe theories serve only to confuse the issue.

Recently I came across an article (from the TPNN) saying that Eddie Routh is possibly a Muslim convert and extremist. He was stationed at Balad Air Base and never saw combat. however he came into “close contact” with the Muslim prisoners there according to Michele Hickford (Editor-in-Chief of Allen West’s website), and also his “beard with trimmed mustache”. She goes so far as to suggest that “What if Routh had been converted to militant Islam in Iraq and sought Kyle out as retribution?

While there is absolutely no proof at all, not even a shred, Routh had been overheard during a phone call home that he didn’t approve of the treatment of the prisoners at Balad Air Base prison area, and that he didn’t know if he believed in the mission of the US in Iraq.

Is this really what we have devolved into? A society of hearsay and drama. Many, if not most, veterans disapproved of the mission in Iraq. Many veterans today are angry at the government for pursing these wars in lands that they didn’t want to go to, and arguably serve no American interest. Have we also forgotten the Army’s mistreatment of the prisoners at Abu Ghraib? A very good friend of mine, who also earned a bronze star with combat V later in the war, was stationed at Abu Ghraib, before that shit show with the prisoners, and told me about the lack of competence of the guards there.

I have no sympathy for a murderer like Routh. He has some serious issues, mental or not. Unfortunately those issues took from this earth one of the finest human beings to walk on it. But we cannot allow ridiculous and unfounded assclownery to run rampant and make us all look like idiots. Maybe Routh was a psychopath since before his service. I have no idea. I’d like to punch Routh in the throat repeatedly myself. But one thing is for sure. We can, and should base our theories and thoughts on reality. Because a serious act requires a serious examination of the facts. Besides a disgruntled veteran who doesn’t like the wars in the middle east, has a beard with a trimmed mustache, and didn’t like the conditions of prisoners overseas describes most of our service veterans today.  And frankly I don’t want to be lumped in with a crazy guy like Routh, and I don’t think you want to either.

Cory Jackson Responds, Cory07ink

(EDIT) Well this video and this article are certainly revealing. I’d say the lies were not totally addressed in Cory’s recent apology. I hope Cory sees this and addresses these posts. I’m not going to jump to conclusions about whether these are legit posts or not, as we all know the internet is a cruel place. All I can say is that I am disappointed that I feel like I tried to take the high road in this case, and I am having to eat my own words. I don’t think that what I said in the article earlier applies to the extent that his apology was not enough. Time to come clean on it all Cory. (EDIT)

When this whole thing came to my attention I felt like I had to respond, and report what was going on because these are serious accusations, and I had recommended Cory’s channel in the past. I felt like I was fair to both Cory and the experiences that I and other people that I have talked to have had in my first post. I texted Cory and I think he felt I wasn’t being fair. So I am posting this today to hopefully rectify that feeling and make some things clear. Cory responded recently in a video that I have linked here.

I think that Cory responded with class. “Has there been times when I misrepresented myself in anger or frustration? Yes” -Cory Jackson

I think that Cory has made it clear he has made mistakes and has apologized for them. At this point I think that Cory has done the honorable thing. I myself have had to defend my claims to being a veteran, even with the overwhelming evidence I have posted online, so I understand the frustration that Cory has had to deal with. What I think is unacceptable is the response to this whole situation by several people who have no actual dog in this fight. Lots of people have been making claims who don’t know, or who have never talked to Cory. There have been threats made against Cory, and his family as well, that are ridiculous, unacceptable, and downright criminal.

I know I have made mistakes in my past as well. At this point all I can say is I support the honorable actions of Cory and his apology for any misrepresentations he might have made. Most people would have been bitches and lied or denied everything. Long story short, lets move on and find something that is worth being pissed about, and be happy we have a man like Cory on the side of freedom and liberty.

Robin Williams Died Today, And I Don’t Care

Robin Williams

Another celebrity died today. Apparently by his own hand. I’m not sure why this is even news. Over 20 American military veterans committed suicide, and that was just today. Why isn’t that news? You know why? Because the public is to too concerned with fools like Robin Williams to care that they are accountable for the deaths of these veterans because they have not insisted on ending the pointless wars. Because the public doesn’t give a shit that thousands of military veterans are homeless due to untreated illnesses. Because the American public is just plain shameful. Every time I see some famous idiot in the news for killing themselves I think about my brothers that die every day, by their own hands, or their enemies. I hope you do too.

EDIT:

This is for all the haters and naysayers who have criticized me for calling Robin Williams a fool.

Robin Williams, Born in Chicago, raised in Detroit. Robin Williams was most likely an atheist. He often mocked God and Christianity. Plenty of evidence of that on youtube. He was a staunch supporter of the democratic party. He donated more than 150,000 dollars to liberal and left leaning special interest groups. He is also described as being “one of the most liberal actors in Hollywood” And no big surprise here he is ANTI-GUN.

Robin Williams “Peace Plan” was not even him.

http://www.snopes.com/politics/soapbox/williams.asp

Just because Robin Williams did a few USO shows and supports the troops doesn’t all of a sudden make him a great guy. The original post has little to do with Robin Williams or his agendas, that was something YOU the viewer imparted on the blog post. The blog post is about Americans who don’t give a shit about military veterans dying by the thousands.

Cory Jackson, Cory07ink

(EDIT) Cory has responded and apologized. Please read the new blog post. (EDIT)

(Edit) I talked to Cory recently and he told me people have been making death threats against him and his family. This is unacceptable behavior and illegal. I in no way shape or form support this behavior. I also talked to several people close to him and they said they had similar experience to myself. They asked not to be named or their exact experiences shared.(Edit)

I have had some interactions with Cory Jackson over the last few years, and have recommended his channel in the past, so I feel compelled to post something about the recent 1 MOA Solutions post. (They have since deleted these posts off facebook) They are as follows…
Prior to SHOT 2014 a former student of Cory Jackson approached me in regards to statements Cory made concerning his “prior military service”. There have been multiple instances where Cory has publicly stated he was a 11B or Infantryman in t…he U.S. Army and alluded to military service overseas.

Based off of those facts I contacted Cory and introduced myself, I explained who I was and my military background. I then asked what his MOS was, where he was assigned and to see his DD214. Cory was unable to answer those questions and refused to provide any supporting documents that are available to any Veteran or former service member.

Ultimately Cory admitted he had lied on his company bio about his military service. After we talked the information on his website was changed from “honorably discharged” to “discharged” to reflect the reality of his discharge.

Recently I received several pages of documentation that appears to show Cory Jackson went AWOL during reception and in-processing at 30th AG RCPT BN Ft. Benning GA. The documents appear to show Cory never made it to initial entry training, never completed boot camp, and was ultimately apprehended by the police while AWOL. After being returned to military custody he was out processed from the military and orders show Cory was “deleted from United States Army Reserve strength” on 12 June 2001.If Cory failed to complete initial in-processing he may not have receive a DD214 which explains why he’s refused to provide one.

I am very interested in discussing these documents with Cory. I believe Cory deserves the opportunity to explain the situation Perhaps it’s all a simple understanding and there’s another Cory Jackson with a similar situation. Sadly Cory has refused to respond to any and all attempts to discuss the situation.” -1 MOA Solutions facebook page

It has also been alleged that Cory went as far as to go AWOL from his training. I have no idea if this is true, but I suspect it is. Unfortunately for Cory nothing ever leaves the internet here is the his bio from the way back machine.

cory jackson

I was contacted by a former friend of his before I met Cory. The friend told me Cory was telling people he was an Army vet. I personally confronted Cory about his service record when I went to visit him two years ago. Which is how you should confront someone, private and tactfully. He basically told me he had been medically separated, which as far as I can tell is true. While he hasn’t lied to me, as far as I know, it has been claimed by several people that he has misrepresented himself, sometimes as far as claiming to have been deployed overseas. I don’t know those people, they could be trolls for all I know. I do however know what interactions I have had with Cory. Ultimately I think Cory has probably misrepresented his service, intentionally or not, but remember this, He actually stood up and tried. Which is more than most have done.

What can you say when someone seems like a good guy but has made mistakes, or lied? If Cory makes a video or a blog post clarifying everything, and admitting to anything he has done or said that was untruthful, or at least to defend his statements, I think he could redeem his honor over time. I have a lot of respect for Dave Canturbury and he admitted and asked for forgiveness for his misrepresentations of his service. If Cory chooses to remain silent on this then he has lost my respect. The truth is that Cory has never a veteran by any stretch if the definition. In the end all you have is your honor.

Are You Helping or Hurting The Second Amendment?

My two favorite lines people who hate open carry use are, “You are hurting the Second Amendment” and “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should”. Inevitably they will always use this in their argument.  Let’s take a closer look at these two assertions.

camo

“You are hurting the Second Amendment”

First of all the Second Amendment shouldn’t exist at all. WHAAA, HUHH??? Shocking I know, but if you have ever studied history you would know that many of our most liberty loving founding fathers actually hated the bill of rights. This may sound counter intuitive, but think about it for a second. The reason they opposed it is because they never wanted Americans to think that their rights were restricted to only what what in the bill of rights. This is why we have the 9th and 10th amendments. It’s to remind us that we have ALL the rights, and those written down are only the most important. So any compromise, AT ALL, of our expressly written, most important rights is an ANTI rights view. That’s right if you don’t think open carry should be legal you are NOT a second amendment supporter.

Let me reel it back in for a minute. So the argument is “If you open carry you will make moderates anti-gun”. ….. OH you are being serious when you say that? There is no such thing as moderates when it comes to issues like guns, and if anyone is “hurting the second amendment” it’s the people PUBLICLY criticizing open carriers. Presenting a fractured front against the whales of rabidly anti gun nuts in D.C. is stupid and wrong. Plus I guarantee that those people bitching about open carriers are not the ones out doing any of the leg work to defend our rights.  At least those open carrying to make a statement care enough to put their reputations on the line to defend their rights. If you want to criticize someone on their form or method then correct them in private, and at least be fair to them. Because blasting them publicly about how stupid they are certainly won’t make them want to come around to your way of thinking.  Notice there isn’t any open carriers blasting people for not doing it.

IMG_0135

“Just because you can doesn’t mean you should”

Once again I have to go back to the rights angle here. This statement in every way is an un-American, anti rights view. On the surface you might think this makes sense, unless you have a highly tuned anarchist streak in your blood like myself. This statement implies that just because you have rights, doesn’t mean you should use them. This is the kind of thinking that backs almost all progressive liberal thinking.  Jim Crow Laws, Marriage Licenses, GUN CONTROL. Yea that’s right, gun control had it’s birth in this thinking. White folks afraid of the newly freed black slaves instituted licenses to be able to marry, segregation laws, and GUN CONTROL. These people are trying to use shame to manipulate other people to their way of thinking. Well the shame is on you anti- rights folks, because it’s just plain un-American.

This statement is so full of rights hating fail that people who don’t see that, make me suspicious. I have to go back again to the “mind your own business” angle. This is a nation of free people, who are you to tell anyone else how to live their lives. Maybe you should concern yourself with the plank in your eye before the speck in mine.

IMG_2818

I choose to surround myself with people who are more concerned with protecting the rights of a man than what the man chooses to do with those rights. Because the guy looking out for your rights, is truly your neighbor.

It’s Not About You It’s About Them

democracy

I recently read an article, by a self proclaimed second amendment supporter, blasting open carriers again. I find myself sighing and trying to muddle through the article without getting angry, but it never fails to make me upset to see these articles. They are usually written by someone who is angry, ignorant, and often useless when it comes to actually defending rights. These are usually the guys who stay home when the gun rallies are on a Saturday, because they can’t be bothered to dip into their free time.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with talking to the people who are open carrying rifles and trying to convince them that it is maybe not the best idea, if you don’t agree with them. But if you write an article marginalizing and demonizing the actions of these people then you are part of the problem in this nation.  Guess what? It’s not about you, it’s about them. If these people feel either the need, or are just plain inclined, to carry a rifle in their daily life then they should be able to do it without supposed “second amendment supporters” screaming at them. It’s their rights they are protesting for, it’s their life they are defending, it’s their human right…

When did we turn into a country of bitchy little girls? I was talking to my grandmother the other day about colloquialisms. She was saying she hasn’t heard people use the term “mind your business” in some time and asked me if people used something else now. I said I didn’t think so, and after thinking about it for some time I realized that people haven’t replaced it with something else, they just stopped minding their own business. Often times people think they should have  a say in how someone else lives their lives these days. Especially the old school “second amendment supporters”.

Well I have news for those guys. You are the past. The future of the Dick Metcalfs and Jerry Tsais of this world is obscurity, because open carry has always been here and is here to stay. So whine all you want, but know this, no one cares what you think about how they live their lives anymore. I intend to live my life as a free man in this supposed free nation and not worry about the those who sit on the sidelines.

I am NOT a Responsible Gun Owner

It really chaps my ass when I hear people say that they are a “responsible” gun owner, or that people need to carry their firearms “responsibly”. To me, this is code for, “I am a smarter or better person than you because I conform to the norm”. Let’s take a closer look at the word responsible.

re·spon·si·ble
adjective
Having an obligation to do something.

So if we take the first meaning of the word you are literally saying that someone has an obligation to act a certain way with their firearm. My problem with that is who decides what the obligation is? If this is a free country, and we are free men, then why would anyone want to tell someone else how to live, or why would you want someone else to tell you how to live? Doesn’t this go against every grain in your body as a human? Am I mistaken when I think that all men yearn to be free? Who are these supposed masters of firearms, safety, and manipulations? I think that they are most often those with the least qualifications to say anything to anyone about firearms.

Ok, I know you may be saying, but what about safety!!!! Well for all you safety sallies I have something for you too. Of course there are common sense safety principles that people should probably practice. If people are being unsafe around you then by all means step in and say something, there is a difference between acting without common sense and putting others in danger. But if someone is so stupid as to put themselves at risk, that is on them.

I think that the good ol boy “responsible” gun owners (probably supporters of the assault weapons ban, live in Arkansas, and voted for Clinton) need to shut the hell up. This is the age of information, the age of freedom, the age where the young start to learn of the oppression in this country, not just from government, but from the marginalization by the masses. I, for one, chose the path less traveled, the path of liberty.
