Must See Video -- "The only 911 call I need is chambering a round"

This is some great video from CNN. It is of an interview with a car dealer who is giving away AK-47s with truck purchases. The interviewer just doesn't "get" this guy or his slogan of "God, guns, guts and American pickup trucks," but my bet is that the majority of Americans would think he makes perfect sense.

No wonder CNN is tanking in the ratings. She has to understand that her attitude flies well in very few selected areas in the country. The rest of the country could give a rat's ass what she thinks about guns. If she is employed by CNN, most people already know.

Mac Lorry:

Of course these are not full auto AK-47's, not for no $450. A better weapon for home defense is a 12-gauge pump shotgun like the Winchester defender. However, if you have to defend a larger area like a farm, then the AK-47 is the right weapon. Of course, whatever weapon you choose, it's of no value against a home invasion if you can't put it into action within 10 seconds of realizing there's a problem.

Unfortunately, most states don't have "make my day" laws that prevent a person from being prosecuted for defending their home. In such states you have to not only contend with someone breaking into your home, you have to analyze the situation to know if you can legally use deadly force. In many states liberals have written the law such that you pretty much have to wait until the criminals have you cornered with no means of escape before you can use deadly force. They reason that it could be just some confused drunk who breaks down your door in the middle of the night and liberals don't what you shooting some drunk who just endanger the lives of everyone on the road and then broke into your home.

Mac Lorry:

Adrian,

You might be interested in this story about a Major who forced the Army to rescind their orders to deploy her to Afghanistan by challenging Obama's legitimacy as President on the basis of his place of birth. That order gave the Major legal standing to make the challenge and rather than releasing Obama's long form birth certificate, the Army rescinded the order.

Now we'll see if other military personal make the same challenge and if the government will defend Obama's legitimacy or just allow military personal to ignore deployment orders. Makes you wonder why Obama won't release the long form birth certificate that shows the hospital and doctor who deliver him? What's he hiding?

That Taitz woman is a scam artist who is ruining that man's life by talking him into that hare-brained scheme. He only signed up for this deployment IN ORDER to file the lawsuit. Now, they have rescinded his orders because, sadly, they are going to court marshall him.

The whole thing started out as an internet scam and to buy into it you have to believe in a 47-year long, CIA-complicit, conspiracy to have the newborn Barack Obama illegally installed as president.

That Taitz woman is a scam artist who is ruining that man's life by talking him into that hare-brained scheme. He only signed up for this deployment IN ORDER to file the lawsuit. Now, they have rescinded his orders because, sadly, they are going to court marshall him.

The fact that the Army rescinded it's order demonstrates Taitz is not a scam artist nor is this a hare-brained scheme. The Army's action legitimized both the parties and their case.

As for a court marshal there's no law in the UMC against bringing a court action against the military. Such a law would be unconstitutional on it's face. If they did attempt a court marshal it would open the door for the Major to open another suite to expose Obama's long-form birth certificate to public scrutiny.

The whole thing started out as an internet scam and to buy into it you have to believe in a 47-year long, CIA-complicit, conspiracy to have the newborn Barack Obama illegally installed as president.

It's real simple. If Obama was born in Hawaii then there is a long-form birth certificate that show the hospital and the doctor who delivered him along with details about his father and mother. Obviously, Obama has something to hide or he would release that document. It's real odd that someone who talks about running a transparent administration continues to hide his long form birth certificate.

One question I would like answered before Taitz continues this case is, if Obama is found to be foreign borne, who then becomes president? Being the election of Obama/Biden was the result of an illegal act, I think it should be McCain/Palin who then become president and VP. However, if Joe Biden would become president, then I would like Taitz to stop her cases at least until 2012.

Adrian "Clueless" Brown

"He only signed up for this deployment IN ORDER to file the lawsuit. Now, they have rescinded his orders because, sadly, they are going to court marshall him"

You are showing your absolute cluelessness here.

a. The military has nothing to court martial him for until such time as he misses movement or commits some other violation of the UCMJ. He hasnt done so as of yet.

b. If the army were going to court Martial him they wouldnt have rescinded his orders as his missing movement would have been all the proof they needed to convict him of the charge.

c. This man is a reservist. Reserve units are on about a 4 year rotation cycle vs the active army. Probably half (if not more) of the reservists dont deploy as an entire unit. A lot of times you will have only a handful of reservists from a specific unit deploy. It depends on rank, MOS, last deployment and a host of other factors. Whereas it is not impossible to volunteer to deploy it is not that easy to hand pick a unit a year or so out where you know that you will be deploying. In addition, this man happens to be an officer so hand picking the unit is harder since there are fewer slots.

In case you are thinking I am defending his actions I am not. He has the right to sue and should do so at the same time his ass should be on the plane when it comes time to deploy.

I see the Chinese have caught onto your logic.

I mean after all why should they pay for their carbon emissions if Obama will force Americans to do so.

http://blogs.wsj.com/environmentalcapital/2009/07/17/commerce-secretary-americans-need-to-pay-for-chinese-emissions/

"Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said something amazing--U.S. consumers should pay for part of Chinese greenhouse-gas emissions. From Reuters:

"It's important that those who consume the products being made all around the world to the benefit of America -- and it's our own consumption activity that's causing the emission of greenhouse gases, then quite frankly Americans need to pay for that," Commerce Secretary Gary Locke told the American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai.

The idea that rich-country consumers should pick up the tab for some of China's industrial emissions has been gaining currency lately--but not from within the Obama administration. The argument is that many of China's factories churn out cheap stuff for the West, not for domestic consumption, so those consumers are actually responsible for the emissions. China, of course, loves the idea."

Maybe some people need a gun for courage. But when a mentally ill man once threatened customers with a machete in a store I ran, I had an obligation to protect my customers and stood up to him and told him, "You're scaring my customers. If I give you a dollar to buy yourself a cup of coffee will you put that thing away and go?" It worked. No gun required. No afterthoughts for the rest of my life of taking someone's life. No complications like a gun would have caused.

My sister's husband has lifelong injuries from a gun accident when he was just 12. My grandmother's brother was killed in a hunting accident at age 16. And I won't go into close relatives wounded in war either.

Lorie Byrd:

I don't quite get the "some people need a gun for courage" comment. Does that mean that anyone who owns a gun is a coward without it? I surely know that is not true of the men and women in the military that I know.

It is great that Paul was able to handle a dangerous situation without a gun, and sometimes people use guns in an irresponsible manner resulting in an escalation of violence or in accidental deaths. The same can be said of alcohol and cars though.

I like the man in the video's very calm and rational way of looking at the second amendment and thought the CNN interviewer's comments, especially about the slogan including the reference to God was interesting.

I recently found out that a friend's fiance was shot to death in California outside their home. I don't know enough about the specifics to know whether or not things would have been different if he owned a gun, but I know that there are many instances when having a gun for protection has saved lives. I have a feeling that any criminals considering breaking into the home of that truck dealer would think twice knowing that he has weapons and is willing to use them.

Hoosan,
What you're really advocating is for individuals
to not have the right of self defense. That we
should be like the euros, and suffer in silence
when assaulted.
Despite your long miserable list of gun injuries there are thousands who have lived a full life because of self defense.
Maybe you don't have the value of others in a
high ranking, it doesn't mean they would agree
with you if their back is up against a wall.
Personally I think your post about this is
full of chum.

Hello Lorie and Maggie. I c... (Below threshold)

Hello Lorie and Maggie. I certainly support gun rights myself. However, in the very dangerous incident with the insane man and a machete, a gun wouldn't have helped much. And stray bullets could have only endangered innocent people as well. One night when some robbers caused a situation at the house, my brother and I took away their car keys and handed their car filled with stolen items from other people's homes over to the police. There are some self defense situations where guns just don't achieve much. In some cases, maybe a gun acts as a deterrent. But firing off guns in a crowded city area or residential area isn't good because of stray bullets that can travel. Only in movies, do bullets never miss their mark and not hit some innocent persons.

I know in the grocery store I'm opening I'll face a few incidents over the years. But I think that I can probably handle incidents without the use of firearms myself. The present owner pointed out a past shoplifter to me, and he seemed afraid of me. So that's a pretty good sign. I don't want things escalating out of control and losing my liquor license or getting $5,000 fines for incidents at the store from the state.

Mac Lorry:

If stray bullets were such a problem or people could always be dealt with without lethal force then there would be no need for police to carry guns.

The reality is that there are both deranged and drugged-up people out there who show no fear in charging multiple well armed police officers with only a knife. Some examples here and here. Thinking you're big enough or wise enough to defend against such people with your bare hands is an invitation to become a victim.

Mac, I did face one assault... (Below threshold)

Mac, I did face one assault about 1979 from a guy selling drugs in a record store I owned once when I asked him to immediately leave or I'd call the police. I ended up in the hospital getting a few stitches put in my head. A second assault occurs when a bar on my block over-served a drunk couple, and they came in and started a fight in my store and the woman swung a metal pricing machine into my head a few times, cutting my head badly. And a manager of Fred Meyer from across the street was stabbed in the face by a shoplifter when he went to lunch with wife right in front of my record store. And my record store had a burglary every six months. Mac, I can tell you not every situation ends up good. But I just don't see where a gun for protection would have helped any of my own situations.

With the grocery store, since it is licensed by the state liquor control, I'm required to keep an incident log. And if I violate some terms of that service license, then I could face $5,000 fines or loss of liquor license.

Maybe you had so much trouble because the word on the street was that the guy who runs that place doesn't have a gun.

Are you telling me that the state requires you to give up your firearm and not defend yourself or your store in order to have a liquor license? Wow, sounds like a risky business to be in. Are you sure the money is all that important?

Mac, the state liquor commission isn't like a normal law body. They simply decide if an incident on the property was excessive or connected to alcohol sales and then hit you with big fines. This essentially requires that you cannot turn shoplifting incidents or other incidents into big fights on the property. You need to handle incidents in a quiet manner so as not to become a neighborhood nuisance.

The biggest problem for the record store was a lot of poverty in the neighborhood, and being open at night, and so many young people into drugs and crime in the area. Fortunately the grocery store is in a better neighborhood with fewer problems.

But no union labor.

Paul, you're right. A gun may never have helped you.

But not everyone is a Chuck Norris clone like your humble self.
At 190 lbs and more than capable of defending myself (rugby, boxing), when I lived in the not nice neightborhoods of York and Harrisburg PA, I was glad more than once that I had a 12 gauge in the closet next to the door with the umbrellas. Never had to fire it, but the sound of the breach clacking shut and sight of the barrel coming through the gap saved my life one night. Someone came looking at my apartment one night, for the previous tenant or the wrong floor, I never found out. But the pounding he gave the door while looking for "Johny" required a replacement. The police came 20 minutes after the action was over, which would have been 15 or more minutes after the door chain had given out (a hammer had already broken the door knob off). Nary a neighbor poked out of their doors until the sound of police radios were in the hall.
If that guy had gotten in, maybe I could have taken him, maybe not. But he was serious about coming in and doing harm, and I doubt it would have mattered much that I was the wrong guy. Bald headed, short mongrel that I was, he probably wouldn't have thought twice about throwing down with me. He knew what 2 barrels meant though.

Now imagine if I wasn't a decently fit and capable fella. I think of my 5'2" wife. If she was living in the same place, alone, I'd want her to have that blunderbuss plus a revolver. Heck, I think of myself 15 years later, with gimp leg and the reflexes of a middle aged man that finds the Wii Fit can out box on a bad day...
Not every man that means to hurt can be bought off with coffee. Not every cash machine to the head is survivable.
