Guns Are A High Calling

It’s Not Controversial -- It’s Virtually Holy

Alan Korwin

This article originally ran in the JPFO Bill of Rights Sentinel, Ed. 13

It’s easy to feel a certain degree of guilt about advocating for gun rights and the Second Amendment.

The amount of mud-slinging, criticism and abuse “regular” people heap on you, when you speak of guns is so enormous, it can weigh you down. It is difficult to bear. The constant berating, denigration and antagonism. The non-stop belittling. Endless bombardment by the so-called mainstream media, about crime and society’s psychos doing bad things, it makes it tough to see the forest for the trees, to stand up for what’s right and just and good.

Yet the brilliant Founding Fathers, the ones who ensconced the right to arms in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution must have had some method to their madness. And it turns out it wasn’t madness at all. It was brilliance.

They realized that no matter what they did about the lowly common man, the even lower common criminal was going to be armed. The despots and dictators, the corrupt power-mad immoral politicians, even somewhat decent politicians, and especially the determined slave owners within their midst were going to be armed to the teeth.

These malefactors were going to have and invent ever more deadly weapons and means of oppression as time went on. If Americans weren’t free to be equally armed, a free country was little more than a pipe dream.

Being called into the fray today for defense of an armed public is not a dark art or evil science, it is among the highest of callings. It is liberty personified. It means standing up to the darkest of powers, the most evil of evil people.

The world rulers, the masters of humanity, who would lord it over you, tell you how to live and what you can and cannot do, they are where evil lives. A Chuck Schumer, a Dianne Feinstein and their allies who would summarily disarm you, while they remain constantly heavily armed by hired thugs, they are the ones who should feel crushed by overwhelming guilt. They do not.

Without this stunning guaranteed personal right to arms, which no other place on Earth possesses, America could not be what it is. In our Founders’ genius and insight, they created what you and I could do to pursue the most robust and splendid course of political action imaginable. It is one you can join in with me.

These children now running loose, legitimately terrified for their lives thanks to psychopaths running loose, these kids would ignorantly disarm you in a false hope of creating safety. They are among the greatest threat to everyone’s safety we may have ever faced. They don’t understand this. And they are being used by evil manipulators hoping to accomplish an insidious goal for which they have been thwarted for decades. It is a malevolent plan without equal.

If not for guns, Europe would be speaking German. Without a robust right to arms, there would be no Israel. The despotic Arabs and Muslim nations would wipe Israel off the map, this is their unholy promise, stopped only by the force of arms. Where are any armed minions of “the religion of peace” opposing that pernicious threat? Nowhere to be found.

“If not for guns, Europe would be speaking German now.”

Wake up, mass media. What magic makes America immune to such intolerance? Who in the democrat party, the ones preaching tolerance and inclusion, is arguing loudly, or at all, for arming the rape victim? Nowhere to be found. Wake up, mass media. Wake up “progressive” America. Wake up to the highest political calling there is -- independent self-reliance with the power to act. Communist dictator Mao correctly said power comes from the barrel of a gun. Power to the people, right on.


The lamestream media told you:

All these crazed permit holders carrying dangerous loaded semi-automatic handguns that spray bullets are nothing but bloody danger waiting to happen on our streets. The whole idea is just a gun-lobby scheme to sell more guns and make the gun manufacturers richer at the cost of our children's lives. If it was legal we would have the whole batch of them lined up against a wall and shot, which would be a good thing, they are just devil's pawns, if the devil was real.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

As gun owners know, CCW-permit holders are in the smallest demographic group for the commission of crime of virtually any ambulatory group of Americans. Self-educated and supremely conscious of the dire ramifications of using firearms in any situation, they are extremely reluctant to draw a firearm and use it unless it is absolutely necessary and justifiable. So-called news-media experts didn't get the memo.

Firearm trade magazines carry regular columns detailing the common and righteous use of firearms in self defense, and though these typically include stories where the gun-owner was completely in the right and may even end up vindicated at the scene, we all know this is frequently not the case. Long, protracted court cases, expensive lawyering and unknown results hang over any use of firearms in a public setting.

Yes, it's better to be alive, but: "It's always better to avoid a gunfight than to win one." Now there's a bit of wisdom you will never see in mass media, even the fair-and-balanced station, for reasons that were unclear at press time.

It's common for gun owners, after experiencing self defense, to obsess about why they were caught in the grinder in the first place. Coulda should woulda may interfere with sleep, work and play. Avoidance is the ultimate self defense and "PreFence" addresses that in scores of ways most people have never considered.

Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill

By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano 240 p. #ST $15

add_to_cart.gif  view_cart.gif

A veteran of the armed forces, national defense and private security, author Grossman, and DeGaetano, detail ways professionals keep their clients out of harm's way before harm appears. You should too. You should not be there in the first place.

"If you're reaching for your gun you've already lost."

Learn how to remain miles away from where you might need to shoot your way out of a bad spot. Even if you don't have to shoot the bad guy, being anywhere near that is being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I cannot recommend this piece of self-defense ammunition enough.

If you suspected this was going to be about killing mass murderers caught in the act, that's a complex question you can write to me about. Your chances of running across that are slim. What action authorities should take as a matter of policy is a separate question. Different rules and principles apply.

Stop the Space Force?

It's already there -- think of this as a branding exercise

It's basically a budget request, bureaucracy, some logos and hats

Military branches will fight for control

Astronaut pilots hailed from the service, right?

The lamestream media told you:

Trump is out of his mind, wants to add a new branch to the military, start a Star Wars debacle again, spend money we don't have, provoke the Russians, and the Chinese, destabilize the world, violate international treaties, is there no end to the trouble this man can cause?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

We Already HAVE a Space Force.

The lunatic left wing with their hair on fire about Trump's talk of a Space Force to handle our military interests in space have no clue we're already there.

Our assets in space exceed a trillion dollars already, and life on Earth depends on them.

The launches that get them there, keep them there, repaired, are intermingled with military branches, with powers delegated to NASA and its budgets and elsewhere. Military industrial complex, one ballgame. The national security devastation we'd suffer from space attacks by our main rivals (communist China and soviet Russia -- you remember them, right?) is not something our military has forgotten, like many of you or our many enemies, and the "news" media.

How good is our coordination? Maybe not as good as the ChiComs and the Ruskies, terms we need to refresh. They're both developing land-based anti-satellite weapons, same as us. Don't be naïve.

Treaties are in place declaring space a place of peace, a weapon-free zone, and all the niceties you might expect of a place everyone is currently powerless to walk up to and conquer. Everyone also uses space for maximum military utility short of launch platforms -- spy satellites that can read your newspapers, track individuals, monitor all electronic communications, and land missiles with a few feet of target. Serious gear is as hardened as we know how to get it, what, you think we build them with Play Doh? Stop the Space Force? Reporters are stupider than we give them credit for. The Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines and Coast Guard have Astronaut Badges for their military service personal who train and then fly into outer space. D'oh!

Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies - Not

Lamestream Report Based on Nonsense

Reported as if Credible, Without Real Basis

The lamestream media told you:

Science News -- Erika Engelhaupt -- "Despite a public debate that grows more fractious with every school shooting, Americans actually agree on gun policy to a surprising extent. According to a survey of more than 2,100 people, majorities of both gun owners and nonowners support 15 potential gun restrictions or regulations, researchers report online May 17 in the American Journal of Public Health."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Science News, a once respectable digest of important developments in scientific discovery, has abandoned even the pretense of neutrality or science, with a new report on firearms based solely on the nation’s leading gun-control advocates. “Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies” cites David Hemenway, described as “an expert on violence prevention who was not involved in the study.” This individual is widely recognized as one of the leading anti-gun-rights proponents in the nation, supported and quoted by gun-control groups, whose work finds no redeeming values to gun ownership.

The study itself comes from the John Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, an agenda-driven organization created in 1995 and funded primarily with a $50 million endowment from Michael Bloomberg (and joined by other left-leaning funders) for the expressed purpose of developing gun-control policy positions. Asking this source for data, and Hemenway to provide credibility is like asking the Flat Earth Society for maps.

The Hopkins Center, since its creation, has issued a steady flood of papers discovering a single finding -- guns are bad, cause harm, serve no valid purpose, and should be regulated, banned, controlled, and gun owners are basically a detriment to society. No valuable purpose to firearms or their role in society appears in any output from the Center, which dominates page after page in Google searches. Its single-minded results alone should prompt any reasonable scientist to question its findings, since firearms are clearly involved in peace-keeping internationally, stopping crime domestically, saving lives, and even if only in police hands, they serve a valuable civic function. Three consecutive years of credible research from the federal Centers for Disease Control shows private firearms prevent 2.5 million crimes annually.

While the Science News report claims gun owners and non-owners alike overwhelmingly support background checks, the actual survey was not described. As readers of Page Nine are aware, background checks have no effect on the main areas of mass murder that motivate the ill-informed public to seek them -- sociopathic children who seek to mass murder their classmates, Muslim jihadis waging war on Americans, inner-city gangs fully armed and committing 6,000 unsolved murders annually after two decades of background checks, and the recording of 12 million innocent Americans names yearly, in the false name of stopping crime.

Perhaps worst is the little-known fact that, after vicious criminals are identified during checks, trying to buy guns at known locations with the FBI on the phone, and having provided their names and contact info on signed forms (which itself is felony perjury), they are simply sent away, with their money. Whether Americans actually agree on that, as Hemenway, the Hopkins Center and Science News report is true, was unclear at press time, like the other highly controversial facts about background checks.

Setting the denied persons free might not be too terribly bad, since the denials are conducted by low-level computer clerks sitting in offices in West Virginia. The checks remove fundamental constitutional rights people should have without trials, due process or representation, and according to expert Dr. John Lott, false positives in the system exceed 90%. That’s proven out by the almost total lack of convictions, or even court cases, for the supposed criminals denied their rights in stores, another point Americans might not agree upon in the high numbers Science News unequivocally declares. No effort to reach Science News was made, since they have been unresponsive in the past, and the story is so hopelessly prejudicial.

Editor Nancy Shute, writer Erika Engelhaupt and Science News are of course welcome to respond, answer any of the claims made in this article and provide any evidence refuting this piece, or run an article in their publication addressing these points, which would be standard in similar cases. According to leading experts, that will not occur.

Vote Fraud Documentation

Investors Business Daily reports 3.5 million more
registered voters than live American adults who can vote.
Census data study by Judicial Watch confirmed.

Nation Review crunches numbers, it's correct.

The lamestream media told you:

All evidence disproves Republican claims the nation suffers from any vote fraud. Efforts at voter ID are just secret efforts to disenfranchise voters, and make it harder for people of color and other marginalized groups to register and swing elections. Some people have no ID and so are prevented from registering to vote. Republicans are dishonest and can't win fairly, so they resort to registration tricks and other dirty tactics. Repeat this story ad infinitum and people will eventually believe it.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

"According to a new study of U.S. Census data, America has more registered voters than actual live voters. "The data come from Judicial Watch's Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.

"As reported by the National Review's Deroy Murdock, who did some numbers-crunching of his own, "some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America's adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud."


"462 U.S. counties had a registration rate exceeding 100% of all eligible voters."

"California, for instance, has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual voters."

"Los Angeles County, whose more than 10 million people make it the nation's most populous county, had 12% more registered voters than live ones, some 707,475 votes. That's a huge number of possible votes in an election."

"As a Wikipedia list of close elections shows, since just 2000 there have been literally dozens of elections at the state, local and federal level decided by 100 votes or fewer."

The report suggests Hillary's popular vote lead in the 2016 election could have been a function of "ghost voters," registrations exceeding actual live people. Hillary lost the Electoral College vote by a 60% to 40% margin, 30 states to 20, an overwhelming upset rarely mentioned in the mass media, which prefers to harp on the popular vote difference.

It's the llegals: Forcing Kid Separations

They know kids can't go to adult prisons

1,700 arrive daily -- 50,000 per month -- was that clear to you?

"News" media brags "Arrests are down!"

For every arrest, at least one illegal sneaks in, maybe two, guards say

The lamestream media told you:

President Trump is tearing families apart at the border because he is evil and cruel. He could stop it if he wanted to but he likes it this way. He thinks this will stop immigration. He is a xenophobe (hates foreigners) and a racist (undefined epithet) and has ordered children to be separated from their families. When he says the media is among America's worst enemies he is attacking us, righteous people doing our jobs, instead of fixing a severe problem for which he is solely responsible.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Let me put this in a context you can understand -- an airport -- because so few people know what it's like to cross a border near a shift-hole like Nogales or other stinking southern desert border towns, across miles of blazing empty desert.

If you attempt to sneak past the TSA agents at a legitimate gate where there is a right way in and guards and cameras and the works, you're going to be arrested and you know it.

So you don't do that, you use the regular path. If you have a child with you, the child will not be put into the same prison cell you will end up in. That would be sick and insane. And illegal. It turns out the ACLU screams bloody murder when precious little children are thrown into the same prison cells with miscreants and adult invaders after they sneak into America.

When you have 50,000 people sneaking in illegally every month -- every month -- like we do here (illegal immigration has dropped, hooray!) -- the people doing this create a massive problem for our nation. The so-called "news" media has failed to make this clear to you.

If it's not your kid, who knows?

The "news" media are proudly proclaiming that arrests are DOWN to only 50,000 per month (600,000 per year) and FAILING to mention that for every arrest, one illegally sneaks in successfully. People here are encouraging people outside to do this -- come to our borders and demand entry, with their babies, children and teenagers. It doesn't even have to be your baby or child -- who's to know?

Everyone knows ahead of time the kids can't go to the same prisons their parents will. Everyone knows if you attempt to break into America (or virtually any sovereign nation) you ought to be arrested and prosecuted. Everyone south of us knew Obama was just letting people all flood in. Everyone except you, the "news" consuming public. Though you ought to know.

That's the logic and principle of it. If you want the math and details, check with Ben Stein. He has it spelled out. (1997 Flores case in the 9th Circuit controls accompanied and unaccompanied children, legal and illegal, in country more than 20 days, choosing deportation or not, controlled by law, exactly the same as under Obama, it's complicated. The real issue isn't separation, it's deportation, required by law. 50,000 per month.) That's about 1,700 every day sneaking in, and another 1,7000 caught and arrested.

We Need More Gun Laws -- say what?

The lamestream media told you:

Surviving victims of the Parkland mass murders went on a 20-state 75-city summer bus tour they arranged to promote gun-safety measures that will stop future school massacres. They are seeking new common-sense gun laws against a Congress that has refused to act because the evil NRA has bought and sold its members. What the adults have been unable to achieve the kids may have a chance at getting done, at last. Yes, we keep running this story.

The common-sense measures the children are supporting include increased universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons and removal of dangerous guns from our streets. The tour includes a voter-registration drive for youngsters who will be turning or are 18 years of age.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

America has 94,000+ words of gun law at the federal level. Do the children know that? It's rhetorical. They do not. Every imaginable criminal act is already outlawed. New proposed laws only outlaw legal behavior, except -- No federal crimes (yet) for officials who infringe.

Gun laws don't cause crime (at least not directly).

Gun laws don't stop crime (or might be a slight deterrent to the weak).

Gun laws provide a way to gauge and punish criminals after they commit crimes. Every crime imaginable is already illegal. New gun laws, which are only proposed by democrats for reasons that are unclear, affect rights Americans have and do not address criminals in any new way. That's because all criminal activity with guns is already illegal, but I repeat myself.

If you want to see and understand the gun laws already in place across the nation, you get and read this, it has them all. Politicians don't know it. The public doesn't know it. Most judges don't know it.

You should know it:

Ask for an autograph on the order form.

The complex multi-city multi-state anti-gun-rights bus tour for the new Parkland political activist advocates has been staged and orchestrated by the nation's leading anti-Second Amendment political operatives, and funded by dark money forces who are remaining completely out of the public eye. The idea the kids did this themselves is as false as almost everything else about this micro-managed event.

Sociopathic children who want to mass murder their classmates are unaffected by gun laws. They don't care about their classmates or gun laws, they care about the psychotropic drugs most of them are on, a fact suppressed by mass media, but available to researchers and you if you look.

Even if "law" required every gun in America to be under lock and key, an infringement banned by the Constitution that would make guns worthless for their righteous and intended use, guns would remain widely available -- as they are to countless criminals who cannot have them at all. Kids get drugs, what makes you think they won't be able to get guns -- especially if they are intent on committing murder.

To be effective in combating the misinformation and anti-rights attacks citizens face from children on a bus tour, mass media that reports total distortion on gun issues, and neighbors and friends whose understanding is lower than their shoe size, read in plain English what our gun laws are:

Why Are Kids Killing Kids?

The lamestream media told you:

We need common-sense gun laws to stop the mass murders we are seeing across this great country. If only we had more gun laws. The big bully NRA is stopping Congress from doing the right thing. That's the problem. Imagine how much peace we would have if only we could get these weapons-of-war off our streets, with more laws. Maybe these kids on the march now, completely self-motivated, will finally come up with an answer.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Laws don't stop criminals. Laws describe punishment after criminals act. This simple truth is lost on many people who are uneducated, or cannot think straight, even after they're educated. More laws don't change these facts.

The children's March for our Lives, including the 20-state, 75-city tour supposedly set up by themselves as a summer jaunt, is heralded as a solution. For reasons that were unexplained at press time, they offer the same solutions the gun-control advocates have offered for decades -- more background checks, bans and confiscations of scary black guns, a new ban on bump stocks (a plastic item used in one unresolved crime in Sin City), and a proposed ban on additional resource officers (armed police) in schools. Also, assaults on the NRA and discrimination against anyone having anything to do with the NRA.

The NRA is the largest gun-safety organization on the planet. They are the ones who promote the gun-safety rules, teach the gun-safety trainers, formulate the policies that lead to decreases in firearm accidents.

The people who work there want their kids protected at school as much as you or anyone else. The idea that mass media could propose such a preposterous lie ("the NRA wants kids dead!" is stunning, shows the insanity of the left. It doesn't even make sense. The NRA stands stalwart against anti-rights activists who want to deny the Bill of Rights. What's wrong with that is the people who want the Bill of Rights abolished, not its defense.

According to one leading expert, kids are killing each other because society is teaching them not only to do so but how to do so. Every fiber of pop culture is filled with that message. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who has taught our armed forces to get over their inhibitions about killing sees it, and has documented it, in his amazing book,"Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill." This book will shock you. You may not be strong enough to read it.

It's not just fun and games when Hollywood's super stars run around machine-gunning each other with glee, blowing each other's brains out at close range in full color with splat effects, or doing that bullet-death-dance they do.

Kids learn from this. There is no moral component to mass murder any longer. It's right there on the screen. The methods and tactics for killing and getting away are taught in movies, video games and especially, on TV every night. You switch channels and every click brings another gun, another murder, more death and no consequence. This has a consequence.

Grossman documents this with medical-, psychological- and combat-accurate references page after page. You will learn from this book. You will be outraged. You will have the verbal ammunition you need to fight back. He even provides phone numbers. You want to stop our kids from killing each other? Get a few of these and give them to your liberal friends who think guns are the problem. What a laugh that is.

China's Secret War Against America

The lamestream media told you:

Nothing significant. Our big trading partner is growing at leaps and bounds. Trump and China's leader have held meetings and talks. China's middle class is growing. China has an air pollution problem. Their new "national bird" is the construction crane, ha ha. China is North Korea's main sponsor, big deal, they're bad but China is our friend. Even though China supplies almost everything to North Korea and could stop them cold if they wanted to. Hey, isn't stuff going on with North Korea now after Trump's meeting?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

"The Chinese Communist Party has for decades waged a quiet war against the United States, mobilizing all elements of its society and targeting the institutions and foundations of the American system. The strategies pull from the Soviet-era practices and are part of the Chinese regime's system of 'unrestricted warfare,' which promotes the idea of war without morals.

"The Epoch Times* lays out the various strategies used in this hidden war in a new infographic and reveals the use of each strategy. Among the more than 40 strategies explained are culture warfare to break the moral fabric of a society, cyberwarfare as a tool to achieve various goals, economic warfare to rob and destroy a country's economy, and psychological warfare to alter he way people interpret information."

*The Epoch Times is an English language newspaper, published in California, by journalists with a different and inner view of China, covering subjects that American media won't go near. See the full infographic and be horrified: Accuracy of reporting on our friends the communist Chinese is almost as accurate as mass media reporting on anything concerning firearms.
