Anyway, this criminal mastermind shows up on the northside of San Antonio and walks around the parking lot of a strip mall with a bandana around his face, a cap on his head, and wearing gloves. A worker from one of the stores goes out and tells braniac to leave but he doesn't. Instead, he decides he needs some oxycontin and cash from the pharmacy. He goes in and hands a note to the pharmacist demanding the drugs and cash.
Now, instead of giving the cash and drugs to the moron in front of him the pharmacist who also owns the pharmacy points his own gun at the wanna-be Dillinger. You know what the criminal did then? He says to the pharmacist "let's get it on".
Police found him dead in the pharmacy with a cocked revolver. No charges are likely to be pressed against the pharmacist. In the words of Police Chief Bill McManus, "He has a right by state law to use deadly force in a situation like this."

A suspected burglar stealthily approached a home in an area neighbors claim is suffering from increasing crime. Police say the burglar began removing a window screen, but was seen by the homeowner, NRA Life member Charles Jemeyson, who quickly got his pistol. "If I had not had my [gun] handy, he would have come into my home," Jemeyson wrote in an email to the NRA. "I fired on round...and he went down. He jumped up and jumped a six-foot fence." Police found the suspect at a hospital suffering from a gunshot wound. (KSAT 12 News, San Antonio, Texas, 03/16/09)
Sarah Nahmens and her mother often discuss personal safety and keep a .32-caliber revolver in their home. "We've always talked about defending yourself and how importand that is," Nahmens said. Police say her planning paid off when two men began forcing her door open. "It kind of kicked in and I thought, 'OK, I've got to make sure that I'm safe'...It was either going to be me or them and it couldn't be me," she explained. Nahmens fired two shots and the uninjured suspects fled. "I commend her for protecting herself," said police Capt. Patrick Whitney. Nahmens said the incident has raised awareness in her normally quiet neighborhood. Several women have expressed interest in a "girls day" at the shooting range to practice and learn more about firearms. (Clovis News Journal, Clovis, N.M., 02/06/09)
When a man armed with a gun allegedly kicked in Derrick Murray's back door and shouted that he was a police officer, Murray wasn't buying it for a second. "[The suspect and his accomplices outside] were talking in street slang," Murry explained. Police say Murray quickly retrieved a semi-automatic rifle and shot the intruder, causing him to flee. But the story doesn't stop there. The intruder ran outside, where he was run over by his own getaway car. The panicked driver then backed up, running over him a second time. The suspect will face charges pending his release from the hospital. His two accomplices are being sought. (WFIE 14 News, Evansville, Ind., 03/16/09)
John Antonetz and his wife, Lydia Pace-Antonetz, were loading groceries into their vehicle in a Wal-Mart parking lot when, police say, a man wearing a disguise announced a robbery. The couple tried to run from the robber, but he struck Pace-Antonetz, grabbed her purse and pointed a gun at the couple. That's when Antonetz, a 63-year-old dentist with a concealed-carry permit, retrieved his .357-caliber revolver from the vehicle. As the suspect continued threatening his wife, Antonetz rounded the vehical and fired several shots. The suspect, who was on parole for a burglary conviction, was arrested by the police when he sought treatment for a gunshot wound at a local hospital. (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, Lowell, Ark., 03/25/09)
Coincidentally, another act by armed citizenry took place in a Wal-Mart parking lot in March. In that incident, police say 28-year-old Joshua Eastman was loading groceries into his vehicle when a teenage thug pointed a gun at him and demanded cash. The quick-thinking Eastman opened the door to his vehicle to form a barrier between himself and the suspect. The clever act may have saved his life. The suspect fired a shot through the door's window, which narrowly missed Eastman but propelled glass shards into his face. Eastman, a concealed-carry permit holder, drew his .32-caliber handgun, dropped below the door and shot his assailant three times. The suspect fled, but police located him nearby. (The Pocono Record, Stroudsburg, Penn., 03/20/09)
Police say a robber wearing a ski mask decided to target a busy Burger King restaurant just before the dinner hour. The robber demanded money and flashed a gun wildly, endangering the lives of the many patrons and employees around him. One customer, John Landers, had seen enough. Landers told the 18-year-old robber to lower his gun and stop pointing it at people. The robber responded by shooting Landers several times. It was a mistake he'd quickly regret. Landers, a concealed-carry permit holder, drew his handgun and shot the robber, killing him. At press time, Landers was in the hospital recovering from injuries. Police say his actions may have saved a number of lives. (The Miami Herald, Miami, Fla., 03/25/09)
If you believe the national media, including heavily biased anti-gun "news magazines" like ABC's 20/20, then you'd think none of these instances could have happened. Those in the anti-gun (anti-rights) media have intentionally stacked the deck to make it appear that your gun is more of a danger to you than to the scum who come after you. Unfortunately for those in the media, all of these stories are true and the real people involved saved their own lives with guns the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees they can own.
The Second Amendment rights of Americans are constantly under attack by politicians seeking to increase their power. Take action in 3 ways. First: Call or write to your representatives in State and Federal government and tell them to keep their power hungry mitts off of your rights. Second: Join the NRA. The NRA has been defending the Second Amendment rights of Americans for a long time and they do it very well. Third: Buy a gun and get professional training on using it properly to defend yourself.

I'd like to welcome blah, blah, blah, I'm blah, blah, blah, I know blah, blah, blah, I feel blah, blah, blah, I won blah, blah, blah, I will blah, blah, blah, Previous Administration blah, blah, blah, and Everyone Agrees blah, blah, blah, Therefore I Have Instructed blah, blah, blah, Michelle Says blah, blah, blah, The World Hates Us blah, blah, blah, I, I, I, Me, Me, Me.
There, now you don't have to wonder what the President is going to say. You don't have to rush to the nearest television bought with the Stimulus Package to find out anything. You've now officially heard/read every single speech he's made or will make.

I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my horse.
I voted Democrat because I believe that oil company profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but government taxes of 15% on the same gallon are not.
I voted Democrat because I believe that the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.
I voted Democrat because I believe that freedom of speech should be strongly supported...as long as nobody is offended by it.
I voted Democrat because when we pull out of Iraq I trust that the bad guys will stop what they're doing because they now think we're good people.
I voted Democrat because I'm way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves.
I voted Democrat because I believe that people who can't tell us if if will rain on Friday can tell us that the polar ice caps will melt away in ten years if I don't start driving a Prius.
I voted Democrat because I'm not concerned with the slaughter of millions of babies so long as we keep all death row inmates alive.
I voted Democrat because I believe that business should not be allowed to make profits for themselves. They should break even and give the rest away to government to redistribute as government sees fit.
I voted Democrat because I believe that liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.
If you did vote Democrat, especially a straight ticket, you really need to re-read this entry and figure out if this really is you. If it is please seek treatment (at your own damn expense).

Yeah, he tried to laugh it off but if a liberal university says he hasn't done enough to earn an honorary degree what does that say about his qualifications to be President of the United States? That was one of the things I've always said about him...he doesn't have the background or qualifications to run the free (for now) world. Of course most of the Marxists in history had little experience running anything other than their mouths, why should Obama be different?
Oh well, he's President now but let me leave you with this: ASU has previously honored Erma Bombeck, Hugh Downs, Howard Pyle, Jerry Colangelo, Art Buchwald, and Steve Allen with honorary degrees. Get it?

The first one, a redhead, is strapped in the electric chair and is asked if she has any last words. She says, "I just graduated from Trinity Bible College and believe in the almighty power of God to intervene on the behalf of the innocent." They throw the switch and nothing happens. They all immediately fall to the floor on their knees, beg for forgiveness, and they release her.
The second one, a brunette, is strapped in and gives her last words. "I just graduated from the Harvard School of Law and I believe in the power of justice to intervene on the part of the innocent." They throw the switch and again, nothing happens. Again they all immediately fall to their knees, beg for forgiveness and release her.
The last one (you know it), a blonde, is strapped in and says, "Well, I'm from the Louisiana State University and just graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering, and I'll tell ya'll right now, ya'll ain't gonna electrocute nobody if you don't plug this thing in!"

Despite the Heller decision the DC city government, in an effort to side-step the U.S. Constitution, has done all it can do to prevent U.S. citizens from exercising their rights by instituting a ridiculous gun registration scheme which includes a roster of "approved" guns based on a State of California list. All citizens attempting to register a handgun for their own defense in their own homes can only do so if their gun is on the list. Simple? Well, not really and that's why the city of Washington DC is being sued yet again.
The lawsuit was filed against Washington DC because when Tracy Ambeau Hanson tried to register her Springfield XD-45, which is on the approved list, she was denied registration because her gun was the wrong color. Oh yeah, you read that correctly. Her gun was not an approved black, green, or brown color...it was bi-tone. Because of that bi-tone color her gun was considered "unsafe" and her registration was denied and rights violated.
The lesson here is that anti-gun, anti-rights governments will make it up as they go in order to accomplish their goals. Exercise your rights or be ready to lose them. You can take a step in the right direction by supporting the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment Foundation.

As I said, this is just a payback move. Congressman Clyburn, the highest ranking African-American in Congress, was key to passing the massive $787 billion "economic-stimulus" plan quickly through the House in February. He also played a part in securing Obama's nomination during the Democrat Presidential Primaries by swaying other "super delagates" toward Obama. Since then, Clyburn and Obama have become somewhat close.
Now, for you liberals out there screaming at your computer screen right now, I know other Presidents have done this kind of thing. But, how many of those Presidents made their whole campaign about "Change" from the way things were done before? No, not promising change because they all do that....how many made it their whole campaign like Obama? How many promised the "most transparent" administration in history? Just Obama. The most ethical? You might see my point. This nomination is not ethical, it's not change, and it's barely transparent.

You know you are doing something right when two prominent politicians driven from public office come out in favor of gun control in the same week.
After resigning from the governorship of New York in shame and spending months out of the public eye, Eliot Spitzer (D) has decided to launch a campaign to rehabilitate himself by giving unsolicited gun control advice to President Barack Obama. Yes, this is the same Eliot Spitzer who, after railing against the "unregulated" firearm industry as New York's Attorney General, was driven from public office when caught spending $4,300 on a member of the oldest and most unregulated of professions.
On Wednesday, Spitzer wrote in Slate magazine that President Obama should not worry about Congress and the public, but should impose gun control on his own. Spitzer's article resurrects a scheme from former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo's idea was that the federal government would buy guns for the military and federal law enforcement agencies only from manufacturers who agree not to sell "certain types of weapons" (unspecified, but presumably including "assault weapons" and many types of handguns) to the general public; not to sell guns without trigger locks, hidden serial numbers, or a magazine disconnect—features that have no particular benefit and some of which decrease the firearm's usefulness for self-defense; not to sell guns to dealers who are not "authorized;" and not to sell guns to dealers to which guns recovered from criminals have been traced.Just think, if Spitzer had spent $4,300.00 on guns, he'd still be Governor. But given his views on the issue, it's just as well he was driven from public office.
The assault on our Second Amendment rights is continuing. Don't let yourself believe that your rights can't be taken away just because they're in the U.S. Constitution. Legislation can be passed that technically doesn't take away your rights but makes it so difficult to exercise your rights that you give up on them.
What can you do? First, join the NRA. You can join online at the NRA Membership website and can even give a gift membership to a friend or loved one. Second, demand that your Congressmen and Senators keep their power hungry mitts off of your rights. Do it soon...like today.
