Here is the Liberator:
Austin Texas Councilman Mike Martinez, who appeared at a gun control rally in that city on April 7, admitted that the Universal Background Check endgame is a ban on guns.
“First of all, to the gentleman who is dying for attention, someone needs to inform him that there is no gun ban currently, but because of the work we’re doing here today, we will make your sign legitimate shortly, so you hang on to that.” The crowd cheered in response.

Shield Tactical sells just about every firearm option that’s available and also provides training services. Here’s their sale page. Thanks in no small part to the Obama-Feinstein rush against the Second Amendment, business is rolling pretty well for Shield.

Commandancy of the The Alamo
Bejar, Feby. 24th. 1836
To the People of Texas & All Americans in the World-
Fellow Citizens & compatriots-
I am besieged, by a thousand or more of the Mexicans under Santa Anna – I have sustained a continual Bombardment & cannonade for 24 hours & have not lost a man – The enemy has demanded a surrender at discretion, otherwise, the garrison are to be put to the sword, if the fort is taken – I have answered the demand with a cannon shot, & our flag still waves proudly from the walls – I shall never surrender or retreat . Then, I call on you in the name of Liberty, of patriotism & everything dear to the American character, to come to our aid, with all dispatch – The enemy is receiving reinforcements daily & will no doubt increase to three or four thousand in four or five days. If this call is neglected, I am determined to sustain myself as long as possible & die like a soldier who never forgets what is due to his own honor & that of his country – Victory or Death .
William Barret Travis.
P. S. The Lord is on our side – When the enemy appeared in sight we had not three bushels of corn – We have since found in deserted houses 80 or 90 bushels and got into the walls 20 or 30 head of Beeves.
From San Antonio’s KENS 5:
Gabriel Rivera, a Douglas MacArthur High School student, believes the classes could stop tragedies like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
“It’s not who can use it, bad or good. It’s who can use it properly,” said Rivera. “It think it’s a good way for people to be safe with weapons and guns in general.”
From Fox News:
But in Oregon, Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller wrote a letter to Biden Monday saying his department will not enforce any new gun laws it considers unconstitutional.
Meanwhile, 1200 WOAI reports that in Texas, Republican state Rep. Steve Toth plans to introduce a bill that would make it illegal to enforce in the state any federal laws restricting semi-automatic firearms or the size of gun magazines.
Kentucky Sheriff explains his views here.
Two conclusions from the 9-11 Commission Report that always stand out in my mind are;
- From now on, the first-responders are going to be ordinary citizens.
- Many of the failures leading up to 9-11 were the result of a lack of imagination.
Below is an essay from a School Superintendent in rural Texas who has taken those lessons to heart. The result is something he calls the “Guardian Plan”.
From: David Thweatt, Special to CNN
Good parents protect their children. We protect them from the wind, sun, fire, cold, sickness, from animals, harmful philosophy, other children, predatory adults, injury when possible, their own faulty reasoning and anything else that we see as a dangerous risk to their health and well-being. They are the future, and they are precious.
At the Harrold Independent School District in Texas, we believe we’ve done everything possible to protect our children. We use cameras, electronic security and emergency plans, and some of our staff members are armed.
What is going to happen when these rifles are banned and these incidents continue to happen?
