Dear Gun Owners & Liberty Lovers: This Meme Should Be A Poster In Your Home

Written by K. Walker on March 27, 2018

Look how brazen have the ‘swamp critters’ have become. Have you been paying attention?

Remember how the IRS was weaponized against political rivals? (But they said sorry, so it’s ok, right?) Nobody went to prison for that.

What about Fast & Furious?

We’ve got a dead American, and our ‘AG’ Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress.

And that brings us to the point of the meme:

If we’re already seeing the DOJ stonewalling Congress over subpoenaed documents, or the monitoring of private conversations between private citizens… if we’re seeing leaks and illegal ‘unmasking’, what do you think they’d try to get away with if the guns were gone completely?

Here’s what they’re up to now:

“Ammunition sales should be subject to the same legal requirements as firearm sales, and that includes instant background checks. …Closing this ludicrous loophole is a common sense component of a comprehensive strategy to reduce gun violence,” Blumenthal said.

Wasserman Schultz added that it is “common-sense legislation” that would close an “absurd loophole.”

Yeah. Just what we need. The government tracking who has how much ammo.

How could that possibly go wrong?

Great assurances were given as recently as 2012, when BBC was pleased to tell this story:

Until now, anyone with a gun permit could buy arms from a private company.

Under the new law, only the army, police and certain groups like security companies will be able to buy arms from the state-owned weapons manufacturer and importer.

The ban is the latest attempt by the government to improve security and cut crime ahead of elections in October.

There were 18,000 murders in their country, and the capital was one of the world’s most dangerous cities.

One member of the public in Caracas told the BBC: “They’re killing people every day. This law is important but they need to do more, they’re not doing enough now.”

Did you catch the reference to Caracas? Yes indeed. That was Venezuala, 2012.

That happened only a year after Bernie Sanders wrote this embarrassing quote on his Senate website in 2011:

These days, the American dream is more apt to be realized in South America, in places such as Ecuador, Venezuela and Argentina, where incomes are actually more equal today than they are in the land of Horatio Alger. Who’s the banana republic now?

How has everything worked out since then?

2018 was not a good year for them. They were eating stray animals, and the animals from the zoo. Their hospitals ran out of supplies. And the democratic process itself seems to have ground to a standstill:

Venezuelan opposition denounces results of first major vote since violent election

If they had the benefit of knowing how things would work out, given a chance to reply ‘from my cold dead hands’ to that 2012 order … do you think Venezuelans would want to stand their ground? Or do you think they’re happy with a non-represontational government?

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.

Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.

The men and women in law enforcement that serve and protect us are commendable, but the response time means that they don’t get there when the bullets are flying.

Are you willing to wait 20 minutes for the police to show up?

It’s an issue that needs to be discussed within our churches and addressed by our church leaders.

We need some righteous badassery in the church to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our brothers and sisters in Christ from the preventable evil in this world.

We need to Obey Jesus.

Including what he said in Luke 22:36.

He [Jesus] said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one.
– The Holy Bible, English Standard Version

For the badass, Christ-follower we’ve got the shirt for you.

Don’t worry, ladies, we haven’t left you out.

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
