It's a bird! It's a plane! It's going down!

I just read this story about a animal activist group spying on hunters with a mini drone. The hunters didn't like that too much and decided to "mistake" the drone for a bird. Needless to say, if you play with fire, you're going to get burnt.

What If Chicago?

A while back a group of people in Chicago had a Twitter campaign aimed at trying to brainstorm ideas on how to curb gun violence in the city. After a few days of #whatifchicago trending it was over. I haven't heard much since then. Until today.

Lawmakers have approved a "violence tax" on firearms sold in Cook County. 25$ will be added to every firearm purchased. Apparently, in the eyes of these law makers, all gun owners are criminals. They are under the impression that Chicago 's skyrocketing murder rates are the result of law-abiding citizens voluntarily subjecting themselves to background checks by buying from a reputable dealer. I never thought California would look good, but compared to Chicago, we have it made here.

Age of entitlement.

Its frustrating being part of a generation who feels they are entitled to anything and everything. I walk around my college campus and I see posters and signs for socialists parties. Signs stating that "capitalism has failed, time for real change."
I see young people my age with a sense of entitlement they didn't earn. They believe that everything is owed to them and they shouldn't have to work to achieve their goals. School should be paid for, they should be handed jobs, money should be stripped from the wealthy and distributed to the poor. When was the shifting point? When did the American dream go from working hard to achieve anything and becoming wealthy to; be lazy, protest and occupy, whine and cry, and take what you feel you deserve without earning it.

I'm ashamed to be a part of this generation. America used to be a nation that promoted hard work and sacrifice, in return for wealth and prosperity. Now it promotes laziness and entitlement. Where the rich guys are the bad guys. Maybe its the parents fault. Maybe its the media. Whatever it is its only going to get worse. Entitled kids will grow and raise their kids to be entitled. The slippery slope to the end of the American dream.

Obama-Romney Debate: Hopeful talking points.

Tonight marks the first debate between Obama and Romney. I think everyone should take time and watch at least part of it. Not for the content of the debate, because i can guarantee you that both sides already have an amazing collection of pre-approved and well memorized responses. We should watch the reactions of each candidate, their speaking style, and how much seems scripted. We all know that Obama very rarely speaks from the hip. He goes nowhere without his teleprompters. Most of a persons character and true beliefs come from those little moments where the words seem from the heart.

The Democratic party has been busy trying to downplay this debate. Stating that Romney has been practicing quite a bit while The president has been busy with "Presidential Duties," such as Golf, Parties with Jay-z, trips to Vegas, and apologizing to the Islamic extremest for hurting their feelings.  Well the earlier part has been said, the later may be a little of my own thoughts.

With that said, Both candidates should be well prepared. If they aren't, they are in the wrong business. The president of the United States has been in office for almost 4 years now. If he isn't prepared to defend his own choices he may have a problem. Romney will come out swinging and the President should have no problem defending his policies seeing as he was the one who created them.

Here are some key talking points i hope come up, (but probably wont)
     1. Who is more in touch with the "poor man" - Romney is being lambasted for being out of touch and too rich. While Obama just bought a $40,000,000 estate in Hawaii. I'm interested to see who comes off as more "poor."

     2. Lockheed Martin layoffs - With the coming automatic defense spending cuts, The defense contractor Lockheed Martin is forced to lay off almost 200,000 people in the United States. Under federal law they must inform the employees ahead of time. Yesterday the President told Lockheed to hold off on the layoff notices. Breaking federal law. He told them to hold off until January. After the elections. Why you might ask? Because, if there are 200,000 layoffs right before an election, that doesn't bode well for the Incumbent.

     3. Fast and Furious. While i know very little of this will actually be talked about. In my heart of hearts i hope that this completely takes over the entire debate. The fact that the DOJ/ATF under Obama and Eric Holder openly sold guns to Mexican drug cartels to try to create new gun control laws here in America absolutely enrages me. Those same guns have been found in the hands of Captured drug cartel leaders, and have been used to kill our boarder patrol agents.

    4. Last but not least, Gun Control. Both of these candidates are say one thing-do the other, type of people on gun control issues. The spokesman for the white house, Jay Carney, has said on multiple occasions that the President supports reinstating the failed Clinton era "Assault Weapons Ban." While Romney has taken the stance of his party, saying he wants no new gun control, including the failed Clinton ban. Although he says that now. While he was the Governor of Massachusetts, he signed into law an Assault Weapons ban. So, as you can see, I don't trust either one of these men. But it does help that the GOP party specifically said they will not reinstate the ban, and the Democratic party said they will. That makes my vote pretty easy to make.

The last piece of advise i can give is this; Make up your own mind. Do your own research. Think for yourself and vote on the policies that matter most to YOU, while remembering we have a Constitution to uphold and protect. Don't watch the after reports, The news is extremely biased towards Obama. No matter what he says, MSNBC will think he is the second coming of Jesus. The same can be said about Romney and FOX.

"Non toxic bullets"

"Non toxic bullets" has to be the most entertaining group of words I've ever laid my eyes upon. It doesn't even require any explanation to prove the stupidity behind that line.

Starting at the beginning. A few months after the electron in 08 the Environmental Protection Agency took on lead ammunition. Saying it poisons the wildlife and they tried to outlaw it. Forcing us to choose "non toxic" alternatives. Even though its been proven that the lead used in creating ammunition is not the same as the lead found in paint, and there is no scientific evidence to show that it has hurt anything other than what the bullet actually hits.

The real goal here is what is known as "back door gun control." If you can't eliminate guns, eliminate the ammo. This would do nothing more than creating massive shortages. The prices would sky rocket. Lead is cheap and perfect for making bullets. It expands when it hits targets and stops. Helping prevent over penetration, keeping rounds from hurting things that weren't intended to be hurt. An example is a round made with a steel core. Preventing "mushrooming." This round does not expand and will not slow down. Creating what we know as "armor piercing" rounds. Which you can't get in California.

What this really would mean is a massive loss of jobs. There are only a few things still made in America. Cars, guns and related accessories. By outlawing lead ammunition we would lose thousands of jobs instantly in the ammunition business. Then eventually hundreds of thousands in the gun making and gun accessories business. At a time when the economy is only getting worse we shouldn't be trying to eliminate the only sector of the economy that is actually growing.

Hopefully the Sportsmans act will prevent this from being a problem.

Thank you Senator John Tester from Montana. A democrat trying to help us gun owners. Surprising.
