“Out of the mouths of babes” isn’t just a meaningless expression. When applied to an unnamed 15-year-old girl in Maryland who testified about the importance of the Second Amendment and the havoc wreaked by gun control, “out of the mouths of babes” refers to a clear-eyed, rational, logic statement that explains the benefits that arms confer on law-abiding citizens, and the ineffectiveness of gun control laws that only harm, not help, those most likely to be victimized by gun crime.
We don’t know much about her, but this 15-year-old girl from Maryland sure knows her facts when it comes to firearms.
Speaking before Maryland legislators at recent a hearing, the young woman made her case against gun control and argued restrictive legislation will only affect law-abiding American citizens. It only took her about three minutes to effectively make her point.
The video was posted to YouTube about a week ago and already has over 1.5 million views.
“I’m 15-years-old and I’ve been shooting for almost eight years. I’ve also been part of the Maryland Rifle Club and Maryland State Rifle Team,” she began. “Because of this I have become eligible for various shooting scholarships around the country to a wide array of even the most prestigious colleges that have shooting teams.”
“Achieving stricter gun control laws would obliterate any opportunity I could have had to attend a decent college on a shooting scholarship,” she added.
She went on to say that it became immediately clear when she began shooting that guns are not the problem, people are.
“Chicago, Illinois has had some of the strictest gun control laws in America enacted in the last few years and it is currently more as twice as likely for you to be killed in Chicago than in the Afghani war,” the 15-year-old said.
She pointed out that of the 3,371 have been killed in Chicago in the past 11 years. Of that total, only 37 were killed with a rifle — barely 1 percent.
“So creating gun control legislation that targets ‘assault rifles’ has statistically proven to only weed out less than 1 percent of the problem if you’re lucky,” she added.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,
Shall not be Infringed
The Second Amendment — it’s not just words on parchment. It’s not a frivolous suggestion from our Founding Fathers to be interpreted on a whim. It lies on the very heart of what our country was founded upon. Our Founding Fathers knew that without the Second Amendment, all of our other freedoms could be in jeopardy.
Our Freedoms are the very Essence of America
They are what make America unique
Mr. President, we are Americans and we will never surrender to your blatant over reach of power against US. We have fought on foreign shores to preserve our Freedoms and Way of Life and we will fight right here on our own lands to protect and defend those same Freedoms.
You Sir, are underestimating
The Will of the American People

Missouri Dems Introduce Alarming Gun Confiscation Bill Giving Law-Abiding Gun Owners 90 Days to Turn in Certain Firearms or Become Felons
Democrats in Missouri introduced startling anti-gun legislation that would require gun owners to hand over their legally purchased so-called “assault weapons” to “the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction” within 90 days.
Under the proposed bill, “Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution.”
Here are some additional provisions found in the gun control bill:
(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;
(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or
(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.
4. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony.
So essentially the law would turn a law-abiding gun owner today, into a felon tomorrow.
State Reps. Rory Ellinger (D-86) and Jill Schupp (D-88) reportedly introduced the anti-gun legislation, House Bill 545, this week.
Gun confiscation is being talked about more and more by lawmakers as a means to get so-called “assault weapons,” which are really semi-automatic rifles, off the streets. Democrats in California last week also proposed legislation that called for the potential confiscation of the state’s 166,000 legally purchased semi-automatic rifles.
California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) defended the massive gun control package, saying “we can save lives.”

U.S. Marine’s Scathing Response to Sen. Feinstein’s Gun Control Proposal:
I Am Not Your Subject
I Am the Man Who Keeps You Free
One U.S. Marine was more than a little displeased with California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s draconian gun control proposal, which includes an assault weapons ban and provisions on handguns and even “grandfathered weapons.”
The letter, written by U.S. Marine Joshua Boston, was titled “No ma’am” and was first posted on CNN iReport on Dec. 27. The letter has since gone viral and has been shared extensively on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, as it seemingly has resonated with a segment of the American population.
Read Boston’s entire “No ma’am” letter below and then share it with others:
Senator Dianne Feinstein,
I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government’s right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma’am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.
I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.
I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.
We, the people, deserve better than you.

After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, they could have sent their Troop Ships and Carriers directly to California To finish what they started.
The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a Massive Invasion until they reached the Mississippi River.
So, why did they not Invade?
After the war, the remaining Japanese Generals and Admirals were asked that question. Their answer……They know that almost every home had guns and the Americans knew how to use them..
The world’s Largest Army…. America’s hunters! I had never thought about this….A blogger added up the deer license sales in just a handful of states and Arrived at a striking conclusion:
There were over 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin .. Allow me to restate that number. Over the last several months, Wisconsin‘s Hunters became the eighth Largest Army in the world. More men under arms than in Iran .. More than in France and Germany combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American State to hunt With firearms, and no one was killed. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan’s 700,000 hunters All of whom have now returned home. Toss in a Quarter Million hunters in West Virginia and it literally Establishes the fact that the hunters of those Four States alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
America will forever be safe from Foreign Invasion with that kind of Home-Grown Firepower.
Hunting — it’s not just a way to Fill the Freezer. It’s a matter of National Security. That’s why all Enemies, Foreign and Domestic, including the Obama White House want to see us Disarmed.
Food for thought when next we consider Gun Control

What is happening to this Generation of Americans? Columbine, the Arizona Shooting, the Colorado Shooting, the University Shootings, Virginia Tech, and now Sandy Hook Elementary School.
As horrendous and tragic as these senseless killings are there is another tragedy ongoing in America that has been totally ignored by our liberal friends and that is the mass murder of America’s Unborn Children.
How can America hold to such a double standard as the discussion on Gun Control begins all the while ignoring the issue of Abortion attributing to the deaths of untold millions of American Children?
Where is the “Discussion” on this in America?
