A great chart on the relationship between Government and Business. It’s kinda mind blowing…
I love this so much. thank you pro 2nd amendment tumblrs. You guys make think that there might still be hope…
Fully automatic weapons were available to civilians until 1986. They’re heavily restricted though under some conditions you can still get one legally, but generally they are illegal. When an anti gunner says “assault weapon” they are usually picturing Rambo with a machine gun.
Military rifles from the World War era were the most powerful. The real power comes from the cartridge itself rather than the weapon. 8mm Mauser, .303 British, 7.62X54R, and 30-06 were some of the most powerful combat cartridges used. 7.62 NATO (or .308 Winchester as the civilian market knows it) is pretty close to a 30-06 in terms of power, but more modern combat rifle cartridges are considerably weaker. 5.56x45 NATO, 7.62x39, and 5.45x39 are all dwarfed in comparison to their older service rifle rounds the world used.
Columbine: Occurred during the 1994-2004 Clinton Assault Weapons ban, and one of the shooters used a ‘assault weapon’ TEC-9 pistol that was illegal under the act.
Virginia Tech: Occurred in a gun-free zone. In fact, it was one of very few Virginia colleges to enforce a no-guns on campus rule.
Aurora: The shooter picked out the only gun-free-zone theater in the city.
Fort Hood: Military personnel are not allowed to carry weapons on base unless given permission by the base’s commander. Only an armed police officer ended up stopping the shooter.
Newtown: Gun free zone. Again. With three stolen weapons, in a state with an assault weapons ban, registration system, and magazine limits.
And you know what gets me? All these celebrities have armed guards. Armed. Guards. Yet they’re willing to deny the average, working class populace the ability to defend themselves. They live in gated communities where they don’t experience crime. They don’t understand the need for semi-auto rifles, pistols, or shotguns because they think that the rest of the world is like their safe little mansions in Southern California and New York. They think that somehow, the Police are 100% effective. They believe that if us peasants don’t need weapons, because of course, they don’t own guns, and nobody hurts them - therefor, if everyone was like them, nobody would get hurt!
These rich, disillusioned idiots think that we should be disarmed. They have this notion that screams “Well, I have armed guards, or live in gated communities, or live with multi-thousand dollar security systems, or have all three. And because we can’t afford these other methods, we should go without protection.” We can’t be trusted to defend ourselves, because we’re not enlightened Hollywood types.
When you give up your fancy security systems and start living like the rest of us, then I’ll honor your opinion. Until then, shut your aristocratic mouths.
These gifs explain it all. Our President is a bold faced liar. Period.
No one will lose their existing plans, except for:
800,000 people in New Jersey
76,000 people in Maryland, Virginia, D.C.
37,000 people in Pennsylvania
300,000 people in Florida
119,000 people in California
Welcome to Obama’s America. Hope you like the change!

lol. And? Your point? Murder has anatomical boundaries? Get outta here with your brainwashed, talking point, agenda driven, illogical liberal babble.
Anonymous said: I hope you realize that less than half of all rapes are ever even reported, and out of the 46% that are reported, only 9% lead to a persecution and only 5% lead to a conviction. That little 1% statistic people like you throw out all the time is most likely much, much higher than we realize.
By “people like me” do you mean the person who supports the freedom, liberty, and constitutional rights of the human in the womb? That’s what you meant, right?
Below are the latest available (2009) statistics on why women choose to have an abortion. These are from AGI & CDC.
The rape argument is a straw man. It is used to try and make the exception the rule. In the cases of less than 1%, I would suggest intensive counseling and adoption options. This could easily be done.
Notice that the overwhelming reason is: I just don’t want it, it doesn’t fit my lifestyle.
On average, women give at least 3 reasons for choosing abortion:
3/4 say that having a baby would interfere with work, school or other responsibilities; about 3/4 say they cannot afford a child; and 1/2 say they do not want to be a single parent or are having problems with their husband or partner (AGI).
Only 12% of women included a physical problem with their health among reasons for having an abortion (NAF).
One per cent (of aborting women) reported that they were the survivors of rape (NAF).
