Clark Aposhian Pimping CCP’s, Free Gun Training. Utah Teachers Arm Up!

Training teachers to kill.

Clark Aposhian: Training teachers to kill.

“The Utah Shooting Sports Council is offering a free class Friday to qualified educators who want to carry concealed firearms in schools.

“The class is open not only to teachers but also all other staff that work in schools,” said Clark Aposhian, chairman of the council. “Because of the popularity last year, we wanted to offer it again.” SLTrib article

Remember Clark?

March 2013: I wrote a detailed character sketch when his loaded assault rifle gun was first taken from his car (not far from my house).

May 2013: Clark was arrested and jailed  for driving a 2-ton army truck to his ex-wife’s house in Cottonwood Heights and making threats to one of the people who lived there. A few days later, the Judge confiscated his guns. Clark Aposhian

Knives Don’t Kill People as Effectively As Guns, And NEVER By Mistake

Let see:
Adam Lanza shot 26 people in five minutes. NOBODY LIVED!
Dylan Quick stabbed 14 people in 15-20 minutes. NOBODY DIED.
Knives Don't Kill People As Well As Guns Kill People

I’m sick and tired of the “guns don’t kill people; people do” mantra. Its too stupid for words.

If it ain’t a hunting rifle, it was designed for a singular purpose, to give a human being the ability to kill another human being. The same cannot be said about spoons, knives, cars, hammers or hamburgers.

I’d like to see a 4-year-old kill a 6-year-old, or the wife of a Tennessee Sheriff’s Deputy or a 3-year-old, his own father, with a knife.

Guns Don't Kill; they just make it easier.

And these people are stupid.
Knives are Not Guns

Thom Hartmann Schools Caller Who Insists 2nd Amendment is to Stop Tyranny (Video)

Thom Hartmann explains to Larry the caller why the 2nd Amendment was written to allow citizens to defend their country, not defend AGAINST tyranny.

What would it take for you to stand out in front of your house with weapons and defend yourself against the federal government?


Second Amendment Primer
: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state,…”

Guns Don't Kill; they just make it easier.

Here’s Why Obama Should Use Presidential Executive Authority to Control Guns

Obama should exercise his presidential authority to effect sensible gun control nationally for two reasons:

1. It bring a badly needed Supreme Court challenge that will likely involve the “Militia” part of the second amendment.

2. It will turn up the volume for historians and constitutional experts in a broad national debate in which second-amendment-extremist will learn a more reasonable interpretation of the second amendment; one that is supported by fact and history instead of the version Justice Scalia smeared like skid marks into our national undies.

We are finally beginning to have an honest discussion about the true meaning of the Second Amendment. Until Sandy Hook, gun rights extremist managed to dominate the conversation. They were allowed to ignore the “A well regulated Militia, being necessary” part.

Here is a PERFECT EXAMPLE from an interview by Nashville’s WSMV-TV on Friday.

It is a fact that the average James Yeager and other Second Amendment Advocates cannot actually recite the whole sentence:

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.

Obama should use his executive power if it will mean Wayne LaPierre, the average 2nd amendment “advocate” and crooked snake oil salesmen like David Hardy will be FORCED to read and memorize THE WHOLE SENTENCE and address the HISTORICAL FACTS surrounding the writing of the Bill of Rights.

What types of people shouldn’t be allowed to have guns?

This type.

And who is that? James Yeager, CEO of Tactical Response, a company that specializes in selling exactly the types of weapons we don’t need, and then training you to use them. Apparently to overthrow your government.

Sadly that is not his original channel video. Why? Because he is a total coward, and already took the original down. But on the internet, things have a tendency to pop back up again.

I eagerly await all the true patriot tea bagger supporters of freedom and haters of treasonous people who I am sure are already formulating a response to remove this man who just explained that he is planning on committing treason. I am sure they are shutting him done as I type this.

You know how people sometimes say “if only we had warning before he went crazy and flew off the handle” after a shooting? This video is a red flag. A giant screaming red flag. With fireworks.

Increasingly the first red flag that you are the type of mentally unstable person who shouldn’t be allowed to own a gun is that you own a gun.

Carolyn Cain, Utah County Special Ed Teacher and Gun Worshiper Embarrasses Utah

This is why Utah is the laughing stock of the World.

The National Rifle Association countered with “arm the teachers.” Gun clubs claim hundreds of teachers are applying for free weapons training. Two hundred people showed up for a class in West Valley City, Utah, outside Salt Lake City, on December 27, 2012, for example. Not all of the people who took the course were teachers. But some were, including Carolyn Cain, who teaches special education kids in kindergarten to the 6th grade in Utah County, Utah.

The Second Amendment IS NOT An Individual Right And Has Nothing to Do with Gun Ownership

Since OneUtah enjoys an audience of the most vocal proponents of arming American to the teeth ( I call you Bubbas), it seems appropriate to provide this EXCELLENT legal, historical analysis of the Second Amendment for ongoing reference.

Cheat Sheet for Bubbas:

  1. The word ‘militia’ appears 5 times in the constitution.

  2. Nineteenth Century state courts construed “bear arms” as having a purely military function

If you are semi-conscious today, you probably think your Second Amendment rights all but require every citizen carry a grenade launcher to defend himself, family, property, dog and pretty much anyone who happens to be within range of his choice of ammunition. And you probably think the ‘right to bear arms’ was intended as an individual right and has always been interpreted as such.

AND, you would be wrong…DEAD WRONG.

The Gun Lobby’s interpretation of the Second Amendment is one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word fraud, on the American People by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime.  The real purpose of the Second Amendment was to ensure that state armies – the militia – would be maintained for the defense of the state.  The very language of the Second Amendment refutes any argument that it was intended to guarantee every citizen an unfettered right to any kind of weapon he or she desires. – Chief Justice Warren Burger, “The Right to Bear Arms,” Parade Magazine, January 14, 1990

Ever notice self-proclaimed Second Amendment experts (Bubbas) VIRTUALLY IGNORE the word “MILITIA?”  Of course you have.  No self-respecting NRA member, nor the average, spineless gun toting coward would DARE read the actual text of the Second Amendment even if they could.

So, it is up to the rest of us to get real clear on the Original Intent of the Second Amendment.  A slow, careful read of the the article (below) is sufficient to arm yourself to the gills to pound any gun freak into the ground.

The Second Amendment Has Nothing to Do with Gun Ownership.

Sample Excerpt:

“Six of the original 13 states, when ratifying the Constitution, proposed amendments which would become the Bill of Rights.  Four of these six ratifying conventions – those of New York, Virginia, Rhode Island and North Carolina – proposed amendments whose language closely mirrored what would become the Second Amendment.  But the debates at the ratifying conventions in these four states make it clear that the delegates wanted to guarantee the right of the states to have militias, despite the constitutional empowerment to the Congress to arm the militias.”

National Rifle Association Has Turned the Second Amendment Into a Cruel and Deadly Hoax

The NRA is the enabler of death-paranoid, delusional and as venomous as a scorpion. With the weak-kneed acquiescence of our politicians, the National Rifle Association has turned the Second Amendment of the Constitution into a cruel and deadly hoax. – Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers Essay: Living Under the Gun from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo.

The procession of funerals of innocent children under the casual gaze of the gun lobby and 2nd Amendment zealots, reminds us that our public spaces are no longer safe. This is the antithesis of freedom and civic life. Americans must rise up now against this terror and demand basic security for unarmed people.

Dead Kids at Sandy Hook Thanks to NRA/Gun Lobby Demonstrable Lies and Distortions

Thoroughly debunked years ago, the gun lobby’s favorite research – a 1995 study by Gary Kleck and Marc Gertz that reported an astounding 2.5 million defense gun uses (DGU) each year in the United States. Yep, you read it right; 2.5 million DGUs PER YEAR!

The Kleck study claims that 2.5 million times per year, someone uses a gun to defend themselves. That’s more defensive gun uses than happened in WWII in Europe in 1944. The Kleck study is so flawed the only thing it measures is the wild imagination of gun owners.

As recently as this month, the NRA referenced Kleck’s deeply flawed and thoroughly refuted study AGAIN in their magazine, America’s 1st Freedom.

Bucky2Gun4250With the help of liars like Alan Korwin and others, the NRA continues to feed its readers demonstrable lies and distortions.

Here, for your reference, is a short list of the many peer reviewed, refereed, academic articles published that clearly refute Kleck’s astronomical claim.*

The ultimate proof the Kleck claim is bullshit, is the fact that despite spending 35 million dollars/year to deceive the public and threaten politicians, in fourteen years since the study, the gun lobby has funded numerous FAILED attempts to repeat Kleck’s study.

*It should be noted that Gary Kleck has refused to defend his study ever since it was published.

Note to readers: OneUtah is a leading publisher of accurate, trustworthy, legal and scientific information about gun rights, guns, violence, gun violence and the psychology of CCP holders. Read more about guns and meet the gun lobby.

Gun Stores And The ‘Obama Bullet Bubble’

I saw this ‘Gun Stores And The ‘Obama Bullet Bubble’

There is a new data set on Gun Dealers in the US against demographic data.  There are some interesting correlations.  They built a super cool map for that and other great data sets.
