I shared the feelings of my ace writer on this blog Dave Cole and riffed on the article by J. Christian Adams, he linked to as well, in my thoughts about how folks think this gun control debacle is new. We must not let the socialist youth movement try to destroy our republic.
The 9th Commandment
You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Exodus 20:16
It is exactly what prohibitionist, and anti-rights do when they push for gun control. The people, you and I that are affected by the changes in laws not the criminals, the insane, the evil or the terrorist.
To be a false witness against our neighbor basically means to falsely accuse someone else of wrongdoing. In the Torah, false witnesses were dealt with very harshly. We see in the above verses that if a person was found to be bearing false witness against another person, they would be given the punishment that the other person would have received if the witness was true! With such a righteous law, we can understand why ‘by the mouth of two or three witnesses’ every matter truly was established. If anyone rose up as a false witness, they would be given the same punishment they thought to give to their neighbor…. risking their own life! With such a thing facing them, they would be very careful, yes?
If this righteous rule were established in today’s court systems, there wouldn’t be nearly the problems we see today.
We, the unwilling, led by the unknowing, are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much, for so long, with so little, we are now qualified to do anything with nothing.
The idea that guns caused the carnage we have faced is so intellectually bankrupt that it is isn’t worth discussing. Remembering where we were as a nation just 30 years ago makes it even more so. It’s time to ask the real question. what changed?
The Pledge of Allegiance includes the phrase: “and to the republic for which it stands.”
Did you know that the United States is, indeed, a republic, not a democracy? Accurately defined, a democracy is a form of government in which the people decide policy matters directly–through town hall meetings or by voting on ballot initiatives and referendums.

Thanks for listening, I am not the bombastic gun guy. I might be a little too subdued for some. But I’ve been around, since the fax machine and bulletin boards online. I’ve been the leader of national black gun club called the tenth cavalry gun club that I founded in 1991. I’ve testified for concealed carry reform in a few states. I’ve been a part of the gun community since then. I’ve lost jobs, bankrupted my family finances chasing after the dream of entrepreneurship in this space. I have learned. All my wisdom comes from the school of hard knocks. I’ve seen smooth talkers, come and go. I’ve seen the keypad contenders and the photograph pretenders. I’m a life member of the NRA. I helped edit the refuse to be a victim program. I’ve received commendations for the Eddie Eagle program and been awarded the Harlan Carter award for civil rights from the NRA. I am currently on the training committee. Just FYI.
Did you know this podcast is over ten years old? I’ve tried it all and I thank you for supporting me. I hope you can tell I am trying to encourage our side.
We go through a lot staying free in America, in 2018.
Gun control is as old as gun powder itself. There has always been one side in favor of controlling who can get a gun. Gun control is great for politicians and the media because it is easy to sell. It’s about money. It’s good for corporations and celebrities in need of tax write offs. Its good for politicians because you can’t offend a mechanical device. It’s good for organizations because you can look like you are doing something socially correct. It is good for preacher, and clergy because it sounds like you are socially conscious and aware but not. Gun control is a billion-dollar industry. It sells guns.
In the inner city they get the mothers of slain teens to put their tears on display. Politicians and organizations pimp these grieving women. Imagine your mother being manipulated and used in the worse time of their lives. Some of these ladies lost their children early on to the streets. Their sons were in gangs or the drug trade and their death although tragic was not a surprise.
This month we have the affluent kids of Parkland Florida gladly being exploited and pushed into the spotlight for the cause of gun control. I suspect they are loving it, many being flown around and funded by millionaires to be on the spotlight. Using their naiveté, voices and socialist tendencies they are being paraded and funded around the country to champion the cause of gun control. They are surprised however that no one takes them serious. They have no idea that every gun control measure that can be instituted has already been tried, implemented, legislated or proposed before.
Gun control is a fail. It was birthed in racism. You cannot legislate human behavior. Evil exist when good people do nothing. Evil is real.
The heart of man is desperately wicked.
I started my journey as the Black Man With A Gun right around the time that it looked like the world was going insane. Mass shootings are not new.
WE have lost many people to evil.
October 1991: Gunman crashes pickup into a Texas cafe, then begins shooting; murders 23 people before committing suicide.
November 1991: Gunman murders four University of Iowa faculty members and a student before committing suicide.
In 1991, Republican hero Ronald Reagan wrote a New York Times op-ed making the case for the Brady bill, which was named after Reagan’s press secretary, who was shot during an assassination attempt. The law established federal background checks for firearm purchases and created a five-day waiting period to give law enforcement time to run these checks. (The waiting period was eventually replaced by an instant background check system, which can be extended to three days if the results of the check aren’t immediately clear.)
Provisions of the 1994 ban. The Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Act (the Federal Assault Weapons Ban) was enacted as part of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. … The Act prohibited the manufacture, transfer, or possession of “semiautomatic assault weapons” as defined by the Act.
In 1996. There was port Arthur in Australia that changed things there
IN 1998, Massachusetts passed what was hailed as the toughest gun-control legislation in the country. Among other stringencies, it banned semiautomatic “assault” weapons, imposed strict new licensing rules, prohibited anyone convicted of a violent crime or drug trafficking from ever carrying or owning a gun, and enacted severe penalties for storing guns unlocked.
But the law that was so tough on law-abiding gun owners had quite a different impact on criminals.
Since 1998, gun crime in Massachusetts has gotten worse, not better. In 2011, Massachusetts recorded 122 murders committed with firearms, the Globe reported this month — “a striking increase from the 65 in 1998.” Other crimes rose too. Between 1998 and 2011, robbery with firearms climbed 20.7 percent. Aggravated assaults jumped 26.7 percent.
As a mountain state, Colorado has a history of broad support for Second Amendment rights. But in the years since the Columbine tragedy, the state’s lawmakers and voters passed some gun restrictions, including requirements governing the sale of firearms at gun shows, a law regulating people’s ability to carry concealed weapons and legislation banning “straw purchases” of weapons for people who would not qualify to buy them legitimately.

2017 – October 5
U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) introduced the Background Check Completion Act Sen. Feinstein said would close a current loophole in the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act that allows gun sales to proceed if a background check is not completed after 72 hours, even if the gun buyer is not legally allowed to purchase a gun.
2-14- 2018 A former student who had been expelled for disciplinary problems was arrested Wednesday in a shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead and 16 wounded.
2018 – February 21
Just days after the February 14, 2018 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, President Trump ordered the Justice Department and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms to review bump fire stocks — devices that allow a semi-automatic rifle to be fired in fully-automatic mode.Trump had previously indicated that he might support a new federal regulation banning the sale of such devices.
“The President, when it comes to that, is committed to ensuring that those devices are — again, I’m not going to get ahead of the announcement, but I can tell you that the President doesn’t support use of those accessories,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders in a press conference.
On February 20, Sanders stated that the President would support “steps” to raise the current minimum age for buying military-style weapons, such as the AR-15—the weapon used in the Parkland shooting—from 18 to 21.
“I think that’s certainly something that’s on the table for us to discuss and that we expect to come up over the next couple of weeks,” Sanders said.

Listen Happy New Year and thank you for listening to the Black Man With A Gun Show Podcast. In response to feedback that you liked when I did a little history, I am going to share some bullet points of the history of slavery in America up until the Emancipation Proclamation. There was a old celebration of freedom that has been perverted called “Watch Night.” It involved my ancestors and I want to share that with you. Michael J. Woodland, talks about cleaning your rifle and you might here a few other things in this one.
By the President of the United States of America: A Proclamation. Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit: “That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom. “That the Executive will, on the first day of January aforesaid, by proclamation, designate the States and parts of States, if any, in which the people thereof, respectively, shall then be in rebellion against the United States; and the fact that any State, or the people thereof, shall on that day be, in good faith, represented in the Congress of the United States by members chosen thereto at elections wherein a majority of the qualified voters of such State shall have participated, shall, in the absence of strong countervailing testimony, be deemed conclusive evidence that such State, and the people thereof, are not then in rebellion against the United States.” Now, therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, by virtue of the power in me vested as Commander-in-Chief, of the Army and Navy of the United States in time of actual armed rebellion against the authority and government of the United States, and as a fit and necessary war measure for suppressing said rebellion, do, on this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and in accordance with my purpose so to do publicly proclaimed for the full period of one hundred days, from the day first above mentioned, order and designate as the States and parts of States wherein the people thereof respectively, are this day in rebellion against the United States, the following, to wit: Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, (except the Parishes of St. Bernard, Plaquemines, Jefferson, St. John, St. Charles, St. James Ascension, Assumption, Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, St. Martin, and Orleans, including the City of New Orleans) Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Virginia, (except the forty-eight counties designated as West Virginia, and also the counties of Berkley, Accomac, Northampton, Elizabeth City, York, Princess Ann, and Norfolk, including the cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth[)], and which excepted parts, are for the present, left precisely as if this proclamation were not issued. And by virtue of the power, and for the purpose aforesaid, I do order and declare that all persons held as slaves within said designated States, and parts of States, are, and henceforward shall be free; and that the Executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authorities thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of said persons. And I hereby enjoin upon the people so declared to be free to abstain from all violence, unless in necessary self-defence; and I recommend to them that, in all cases when allowed, they labor faithfully for reasonable wages. And I further declare and make known, that such persons of suitable condition, will be received into the armed service of the United States to garrison forts, positions, stations, and other places, and to man vessels of all sorts in said service. And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitution, upon military necessity, I invoke the considerate judgment of mankind, and the gracious favor of Almighty God. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed. Done at the City of Washington, this first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the eighty-seventh. By the President: ABRAHAM LINCOLN WILLIAM H. SEWARD, Secretary of State.
