      Tremendously bad. The right just love to shoot and kill rather than sustain and improve.

        Shooting an attacker sustains my choice not to be a victim.

        I know this is a few days old – but I HAVE to respond.

        Three recent issues that gunfire by a female saved her life.
        1) In Oklahoma, in an urban area, a young widow and her babe-in-arms were attacked. 2 men broke into her house, trashed the place while she was barracated (sp? Doesn’t look right..) in her room, on the phone with 911 for TWENTY MINUTES. when one of the men finally succeeded in breaking through the door, he went after her with a large knife – she shot him with a shotgun. The police FINALLY arrived several minutes afterward. Had she not had the gun….
        2) An 11-year-old girl – a skeet-shooting champion in her age bracket – was home alone when 2 armed ILLEGAL ALIENS – one had a handgun stolen from a house earlier where they killed an old man – broke in. She got her dad’s handgun, and watched from the top of the stairs. They came up after her – she shot both of them. One died in the house, the other outside.
        3) Recently, a young girl (9, I think) was home alone when a man broke into the home. She grabbed a cell phone and her mom’s handgun and locked herself in the closet. Mom told her to call 911, which she did. The man was trying to get at her and break down the door, threatening to rape and kill her. She shot him through the door.

        This is what’s meant by allowing people to defend themselves – especially women. Would “talking” to these men have stopped rape and/or murder? I think not. We take shooting seriously – and pray we never have to shoot anyone. This is not the fun and games you seem to think it is.

        I pray that your family is never attacked, so you won’t have to stand by helplessly and watch your wife get raped or family murdered because you are so close-minded that you count be bothered to do SOMETHING to protect them – and don’t count on the police – you’ll be lucky if they show up 20 minutes after the peeps leave!!

        Also, your close-minded remarks only show that you have been completely brainwashed by the progressive mindset. Until you can defend your comments with verifiable facts, don’t touch the “post” button….

  • victoryman

    Beautiful! Self defense is a God given right, male or female. However, there are those who are scheming to take away all firearms from law abiding people. Do not forget that one of the first things Mr.Hitler – and dictators in general – did was disarm the populace. A disarmed populace is a controllable populace.

        You are un-American. Why don’t you leave while you are able. Try living in a less gun populated country such as: Russia, Cuba or England. Then do not complain when you are robbed by the bad guy

        You’re correct. There is only one God!

      • theoldstoryteller

        Your stupidity is obvious!

  • Don C. Hayward

    We are indeed fortunate to have women such as Ms. Keaton who understands the obvious. The disconnect between a womens alleged “right to choose” death to an unborn child as derived from the constitutional right to privacy is mind numbing. When citing a constitutional “right” as intended by the founders one does not have go to case law stupidity and justify a decision based on political pusuasion. Enumerated rights are clearly written and established albeit distorted and marginalized in todays sick society.

    • kenj41ne

      Most correct answer to abortion is don’t get pregnant. If a woman is raped, we now have a morning after pill that is supposed to take care of that. That relies on going to a doctor and telling him or her that you have been raped and get the pill. If you choose to report it to the authorities, that is up to you. If you are carrying a weapon and are attacked, use it. Then we don’t have to worry about the pill after.

      • vicki

        Well said. My right to choose is the right to have sex or not. If I don’t have sex I won’t get pregnant.

    • vicki

      “Enumerated rights are clearly written and established”

      Clearly written but the Constitution is a list of limits on GOVERNMENT. The founders knew human nature well and knew that tyrants would try to take away any and all rights that are not “enumerated”. Thus they added the 9th amendment to the enumerated list of rights.

    • John

      And the statistics say that people in the house would be more likely to die as a result. I don’t like people who think violence or threats of violence are the answer. Strangely you are the ones who claim a “peace loving” god who says “Thou shalt not kill”. Hypocrites to the core.

      • beebee

        You call it violence, I call it self protection from those who would do us harm

      • vicki

        “I don’t like people who think violence or threats of violence are the answer.”

        We don’t like them either. Difference is when they break into your home (That would be a violent act btw) you will submit. We won’t.

        “Thou shalt not kill” – incorrect translation. The correct translation is “Thou shalt not murder”

      • Mort Leith

        John is a future victim waiting to happen,, too clueless to think that anything will ever happen to HIM,, just other people…

        He’s a PERFECT target for criminals,, and probably live of the clueless LEFT Coast

      • Charie

        I’m sorry you’re so ignorant, John. I saw viki’s post and she said the commandment is, “Thou shalt not murder.” She’s absolutely correct and if you don’t know the dfference between “kills” and “murder”, then you’re more ignorant than I thought.

        Please don’t try to use quotes from a book that you know nothing of to prove a point.

    Changing America,

    America now has more new legal and illegal immigrants that changed the demographics of America who voted for King Obama and his social justice agenda. Now it is not what you can do for your country, now it is what my country can do for me. King Obamas Big Government Control will now destroy America, the republican party, replace the Supreme Court with liberals and lesbians and anything else that stands in his way to change America.

    I am sure glad I am not the only one that feels this way about King Obama and his plans for a new America. I just hope to God I am not around to see it.

    • gundog9mm

      This generation is lost. We need to raise up a brand new generation of
      intelligent, self-confident, self-supporting children who love freedom and have
      backbones. This is the only way we can restore our America.

      • John

        Unfortunately all you have taught so far is religion racism and violence. Your children spend too much time at church and watching TV so that other countries are more creative and work harder.

        • Charie

          Gee whiz John, I mean this in only the most heartfelt loving way, but you are an idiot! Just sayin’.

    • Pakinpastor

      It sounds like you have given up! I hope you are not around to see it as well. But I think the real ideal is to make the changes that we can in this liberal society that we can make and pray that it will make a difference. If we all just throw up our hands and say “I just hope to God I’m not around to see it.” then we have lost for sure, and our children and grandchildren will have to pay the price for our laziness. We must never stop the fight for truth and righteousness in America. It may have been dealt a blow, but it’s not a death blow. We must always stand up for what is right about our country and try our hardest to make a difference in the youth that will bring this country back to reality! p.s. really I do hope you are around to see the good in America!

    • John

      And the immigrants have the brains to know that guns are a stupid American obsession with violence.

    • Rockcut

      Your fears are unreasonable and illo conceived. I cannot understand how you work our self up to the point of posting such nonsense.

  • http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/ Ted R. Weiland

    Because the constitutional framers decided they knew better than Yahweh, the Second Amendment only recognizes a right, which can be, has been, and always will be regulated by the government, particularly its judicial branch, under who’s jurisdiction it was placed. On the other hand, Yahweh charges us with the responsibility to bear arms in defense of ourselves, our families, and our fellow man (1 Timothy 5:8).

    Larry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America, agrees. Listen to his views at http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/tapelist.html#goa.

    Then read “Firearms: Scripturally Defended” on our Online Book Page.

    • gundog9mm

      The Founders did recognize these rights came from God, hence unalienable
      rights. meaning GOD-given, NOT man-made. Also don’t forget Luke 2:36-38. Sward/Glock.

      • http://www.bibleversusconstitution.org/ Ted R. Weiland

        The problem is, there is no such thing as unalienable rights in the Bible; only God-expected responsibilities. Rights are but another bill of goods that have helped sell us down the river. Consider the following:

        “The first Ten Amendments, commonly known as the Bill of Rights, were a
        compromise between the constitutional framers and the anti-federalists who opposed the Constitution as originally framed. In theory, the Bill of Rights protects, among other things, the “unalienable rights” of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” But have life, liberty, and happiness been advanced or protected since their ratification?…

        “The Scriptures provide no evidence of God-given (or unalienable) rights. Even life and liberty are not rights, but rather responsibilities delegated by Yahweh. Of course, rights are much more popular than responsibilities. Everyone, including homosexuals and infant murderers, demand their rights, but few are interested in fulfilling their responsibilities.

        “The Puritan idea of rights and liberty was quite different from what the framers had in mind:

        ‘John Winthrop [first governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony] … reminded his fellow-citizens of Massachusetts that a doctrine of civil rights [as in the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights] which looked to natural or sinful man as its source and guardian [as in the Preamble] was actually
        destructive of that very liberty which they were seeking to protect. True freedom can never be found in institutions which are under the direction of sinful men, but only in the redemption wrought for man by Jesus Christ. Christ, not man, is the sole source and guarantee of true liberty.’ (C. Gregg Singer, A Theological Interpretation of American History (Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Co., 1964) p. 19.)

        “R.J. Rushdoony pointed out the sophistry of governments based upon freedom:

        ‘….[A] society which makes freedom its primary goal will lose it, because it has made, not responsibility, but freedom from responsibility, its purpose. When freedom is the basic emphasis, it is not responsible speech which is
        fostered but irresponsible speech. If freedom of press is absolutized, libel will be defended finally as a privilege of freedom, and if free speech is absolutized, slander finally becomes a right. Religious liberty becomes a triumph of irreligion. Tyranny and anarchy take over. Freedom of speech, press, and religion all give way to controls, totalitarian controls. The goal must be God’s law-order, in which alone is true liberty.’ (Rousas John Rushdoony, The Institutes of Biblical Law (The Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, 1973) p. 581.)”

        • Charie

          John, you’re being very backward. I’ll spell it out for you. I know Liberals don’t understand analogies or words over 5 letters in length. In this case arms refer to p-r-o-t-e-c-t-i-o-n of one, one’s f-a-m-i-l-y and one’s home.

  • Blessings

    I own, I will always own a gun. Ive had years of training and know how to handle my gun responsibly. Ladys feel a threat level different then man. If a man is in my home he could kill me with his bare hands, men would have a better chance because of strength. Me, i’ll shoot and unload my gun.. I’ve been trained to protect myself, my loved ones and my home…

    • John

      I don’t need one. I’m not paranoid. I realize that there are far more likely dangers that need one’s attention. Having a gun will not stop the tailgaters and the clowns on their cell phones.

      • beebee

        I don’t think the subject of guns applies to tailgaters and clowns on their cellphone, it applies to SELF DEFENSE when needed!

      • vicki

      Joke. Liberal women aren’t stupid enough to believe this garbage. You are the ones who are brainwashed by the likes of the NRA. The NRA is funded by the arms industry and exists to scare the living daylights out of the gullible so that they will buy more guns and ammo. You people don’t get it.

      • kay

        Liberal women who have been threatened or attacked don’t believe the 2nd amendment to be garbage. Garbage in (msnbc) garbage out. Reading history would enlighten you. Nra isn’t scaring people. It’s upholding constitution. Do not assume to speak for women, liberal or otherwise. You, sir are scary!! Get a job!

      • Charie

        The NRA is funded by the millions of gun owners who belong to it, as am I. You would just love to say that it’s some kind of a conspiracy, but then too many of you are simply paranoid.

  • sagebrush6

    Yuppa, I have to agree. I not only agree, I perpetuate it. Taught both my wife, my daughter and son how to shoot. I think they shoot better than me. Scary.
    Everyone should be armed. An armed society is a polite society. People don’t screw with armed people. It’s dangerous.

      It’s bullshit.

      • vicki

        We know your arguments are. You don’t have to tell us the obvious.

  • John

    No but you are a jerk who thinks the solution is to kill people. We don’t need guns. We don’t need dead people. Go invent a defensive weapon instead of this clown weapon that kills innocent people on a regular basis.

    • adamenochnoah

      So you have no problem with kiIIing people with vehicles, but you have no problem with leaving a woman defenseless against a more powerful assailant who would torture & murder her in cold blood? You are a nitwit.

    “Driving a car is not a “right””

    Well. Actually it IS your right to move your private property around. What is really annoying is that in today’s world people believe they must get permission of the king (usually a state government) to have it on what are OUR roads.

    Our guns, knives, whatever are also OUR private property and government has no business telling us we must get permission of the king (usually a state government) to have it on what is OUR body.

    The principle is the same. Our forefathers knew that effective defenses against tyranny would be targeted by would be tyrants so included specific language to warn government to lay off trying to control the personal right to keep and carry such tools (knives, swords, guns, etc)

    They also knew that tyrants could and would try and take lots of other rights beyond the few enumerated ones in the Constitution and so the 9th Amendment was included in the document.

  • Patriot46

    All lawful citizens should learn to handle a firearm. I believe CCW permits are unconstitutional. Self defense is self evident. The founders put gun ownership immediately after free speech, at number two, for a reason. Act accordingly.
