In Honor of Chris Kyle

Today, as I write this, we are currently burying an American hero. Chris Kyle from Odessa, Texas was the most lethal sniper in American history. The Pentagon confirmed 160 kills, although Kyle claimed it was actually 255. Sometimes you just can't get into an area to confirm a kill. Kyle was a Navy Seal who served 4 tours of duty in Iraq, with a longest shot recording of over 1.1 miles. He saved countless lives until his own was taken by a former serviceman who suffered from PTSD. While THOUSANDS of people are expected to show up for the memorial service, there will be one spot noticeably vacant - President Obama. You see, the man can show up for countless celebrity funerals and photo ops, saying kind words and singing the praises of hardcore drug attics like Whitney Houston and child molesters like Michael Jackson, but when it comes to honoring someone who has saved thousands of lives, who had a $100,000 price on his head from the enemy his entire career, and who dedicated his work after leaving the service to rehabilitating service members, President Obama has been silent for the last 9 days. Not so much as a word or a nod. Shame.

Rest in Peace, Chris. We're grateful that we could sleep at night knowing that you were on the ramparts.

Fundamental Disconnect

The fact that President Obama believes that an image or mention of him skeet shooting is proof enough that he "supports the 2nd amendment" is outright ridiculous and shows a fundamental disconnect between his personal beliefs and what the Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantees us. 

I've said it before, and I will say it again:

The biggest lie that's been told, repeated, and ingrained into the general populace's mind regarding all this "gun violence" debate is this:

The Second Amendment exists so people have the freedom to hunt and sport shoot. 

WRONG! It exists for average citizen to defend themselves from a tyrannical government that may one day try to take away the rights that were given in the Constitution. Hunting
 and shooting sports have nothing to do with it. We GET to do those things because we have a RIGHT to a firearm, but the 2A is 150% about protecting civilians from the government. Remember that when these government folks try to convince you that it's outdated, unneeded, and no longer applies. 

Obama's insistence that the 2nd Amendment exists for these other purposes let us in on the dirty little "secret" (read: obvious truth) that the current President of the United States flat out doesn't know history or the Constitution. Now THAT is a disturbing thing.
