Eric Holder Says We Must Brainwash People Against Guns

Tragedy In Connecticut Is Example Why Gun Control Doesn't Work!


There has been a horrendous mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.   At this time, 27 people are reported dead, most of them children.
This shooting is yet another tragic example of the failed, grotesque insistence on helpless victim zones where any crazed gunman can be assured of a large number of disarmed, undefended, helpless victims, all crammed into one place, where he can kill many children before an armed defender arrives from elsewhere.  It is disturbing and sick that the federal government so hates the right of the American people to bear arms, and so hates their natural right to self defense, that the government insists on making them helpless, disarmed victims for anyone who cares to kill them.   And in this case, all of the teachers and staff were willfully disarmed by the Federal Government, by force of law and threat of prison, to ensure that they would be disarmed and incapable of saving the lives of the children entrusted to their care.

That makes the Federal Government complicit in the deaths of these children, and in fact an accessory to their mass murder, by forcibly disarming (with the very real threat of prison) all the teachers, all the staff, and any parent who may have been on school property.  That stupid law guaranteed the shooters would meet no immediate armed resistance, which is exactly what is needed to stop such an attack.

In such a shooting (as in every criminal attack), seconds count, and the people best positioned to stop the attack are the people on the scene - the intended victims and/or their care-takers.  In this case, that would mean the teachers and staff of the school, and also the parents, who should have the ability to save the lives of their own children as they take them to and from school.

The police cannot, and do not arrive in time to stop such shooters from killing large numbers of people.  They are a slow reactive force compared to an armed citizen on the scene.   This should be common sense, as it is obvious that in the immediacy of a criminal attack, it is the intended victims (or their immediate care-takers) who are there, in position to put a stop to the attack, if they are capable.  And being capable means being armed, trained, willing, and able to use deadly force, right then, right there.  Anything less leads to what we saw here.

But no doubt the rabid anti-gun government supremacists will use this to further their agenda to disarm the American people, totally ignoring that obvious, plain-as-day truth.   Anti-gun nuts trust the government with guns, but not the people, and insist that the lowly citizen must be disarmed and helpless in the face of murderous assault, and must wait on slow responding armed government employees, who will not be there when the attack starts, and most often can only really clean up the horrendous crime scene afterwards and maybe, just maybe apprehend a shooter who has chosen not to kill himself (as they usually do).

The bottom line is that these teachers and staff at the Sandy Hook Elementary School were incapable of keeping these children safe, and incapable of defending them.  And one of the biggest reasons they were so incapable and unprepared to save the lives of the children entrusted to their care is because the anti-gun nuts and their fellow travelers in government insisted on disarming every adult in the vicinity, by threatening them with prison time – EXCEPT the gunmen, who don’t care about the law and thus were not disarmed.    laws against carrying weapons in schools don’t stop evil men with murderous intent.  Such laws only disarm the law abiding and virtuous, who are now rendered incompetent to defend the precious children in their care.

This is disgusting.  And yet another reason to home-school.  Why would you want to leave your children helpless, in the hands of adults who are  themselves helpless, and incapable of defending them, by government decree?  For all we know, one of the teachers may have been a veteran, with the training and skill to use a firearm if one had been available.  But all the teachers and staff, whatever their ability with firearms, were stripped of the choice and chance to save the lives of these kids.

There are more good guys than bad guys in the world.  But the good guys need to be able to stop the bad guys, and that means  they need to be armed so they can stop the bad guys on the spot, without having to wait for “official” government approved good guys to respond.  Trust the teachers with arms so they can save the lives of their students.

Until the adults are allowed to actually act like adults, and defend themselves and their students, this kind of willful killing will continue to happen, and the federal government will in each case be a guilty party to the conspiracy by ensuring that the targets are disarmed.
Until this changes, you should refuse to give your children over to government schools lorded over by a Federal Government so callous and indifferent to their safety and lives.

Supreme Court Revives ObamaCare Fight

Liberty Counsel
Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman

The U.S. Supreme Court granted Liberty Counsel’s Petition for Rehearing in the ObamaCare case of Liberty University et al v. Geithner. 
 
The High Court’s ruling says that Liberty Counsel’s “Day in Court” against ObamaCare is far from over!  In fact, it’s just beginning – again – at the federal appellate level. 
 
With their recent ruling, the Supreme Court directed that our case be reheard at the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia. 
 
++ObamaCare MUST be struck down!
 
Congress clearly exceeded its power by forcing every employer to provide federally mandated insurance. But even more shocking is the abortion mandate, which collides with constitutional guarantees of religious freedom and rights of conscience. 
 
Also in question is whether the First Amendment Free Exercise of Religion Clause and the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) have been violated by both the employer and the individual “abortion mandate” that has been exposed during ObamaCare’s implementation.
 
++How we got another shot at taking down ObamaCare in court.
 
The fact that a highly technical and narrow ruling by the Supreme Court in June of this year found the President’s healthcare “reform” law to be permissible under the Constitution as a tax did not settle the issues contained in our original lawsuit. The Court ruled (wrongly in my opinion) that Congress has the authority to pass the individual mandate as a tax.
 
But many issues were not decided that were contained in our case that was pending at the Supreme Court. That was why I felt we must file a petition for rehearing, and is likely the reason why the Supreme Court ordered the federal court of appeals to hear our arguments.
 
The legal battle against ObamaCare is among the most historic pieces of litigation ever fought in the United States federal judiciary – and Liberty Counsel’s lawsuit is now on the forefront of all judicial efforts to have the law overturned! 
 
This may well pave the way for the case to return to the High Court in 2013 – before the law’s full implementation in 2014.

Now our case has been given new life!  
 
I am asking that you stand with me, the Liberty Counsel Litigation Team, and tens of thousands of your fellow patriotic Americans who REFUSE to allow the Left to turn America into just another socialist state!
 
What a blessing to know that you and many, many others will be there with me, standing with us and praying for our success!  
 
To make this possible, we are compiling another powerful Amici Book, which is Latin for “Book of Friends.”  
 
I’m asking you to join with other engaged citizens to sign the 2013 Amici Book, which I will once again place prominently at our Counsel’s Table…. directly across the aisle from Attorney General Eric Holder’s team from the Department of Justice (DOJ)!

This way, you can join me in that courtroom! 
 
Please take a moment right now to sign the Amici Bookand declare that you will personally stand with me as I once again take on the daunting challenge of battling with the Obama administration and the Department of Justice. 
 
++Our legal efforts to stop ObamaCare have once again moved into high gear. 
 
I assure you, we will be fully prepared from a legal standpoint.  But more importantly, I will be walking into court knowing that many, many concerned citizens are standing with me – the equivalent of two packed baseball stadiums or more.  That’s one measure of why your personal support has such value!

P.S. Liberty Counsel is fighting on behalf of ALL Americans’ constitutionally protected religious liberties and rights of conscience. 
 
Please join me in the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals by signing our Amici Book (meaning, as I have mentioned, “Book of Friends”).  You ARE a friend – please let me know you will continue to support our case against this outrageous healthcare “reform” bill!  Again, thank you and God bless you!
