"When some of my friends have asked me anxiously about their boys, whether they should let them hunt, I have answered, yes - remembering that it was one of the best parts of my education - make them hunters."

Henry David Thoreau, 1854

“A citizen who shirks his duty to contribute to the security of his community is little better than the criminal who threatens it.” - Robert Boatman

Sticking to their guns: Marines place $22.5M order for the Colt .45 M1911

It’s been called the greatest handgun ever made, and it has barely changed sine 1911, when the legendary John Browning designed it especially for the U.S. Military.
And now, the Colt .45 M1911 is making a big comeback, now that the U.S. Marines have placed a $22.5 million order for the Connecticut-made pistols.
The gun, which has been wielded on film by John Wayne and in real life by Sgt. Alvin York and Maj. Audie Murphy, was the standard-issue sidearm in the military for decades, until it was replaced by the Beretta M9 in 1985.

U.S.reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade

U.S.reverses stance on treaty to regulate arms trade

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said
it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks
operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.

The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State
Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration,
which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the
United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete
ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with
foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama
administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative
process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all
US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are
laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United  
Nationsand individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are
designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.

The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control
that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even
understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them
that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead
to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary
Clintonis committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.
Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no
publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up
one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm
and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public. We will wake up another
morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm
ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has
signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local
government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.

This is not a joke nor a false warning.  As sure as government health care will be forced
on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.

Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed.

We are being led like a lamb to the slaughter (Socialism/Dictatorship).
