Check your information! Read the relevant links in this Google search to sort through the real history and frequency of modern mass killings around the world. Don't just take the word of politicians who are trying to manipulate public opinion for their own advantage. STUDY AND THINK BEFORE you support any anti-rights people or groups that are trying to undermine the plain language of the U S Constitution, as those parties try to disarm US citizens.
Begin by asking yourself why there are equally frequent mass murders in other nations and cultures that have banned firearms and stripped their citizens of their natural right to self-defense.

Another Christmas Carol
The world, it still goes crazy,
Chasing false and foolish gods:
People love themselves & trinkets,
And they call God’s Bible odd.
All the passions of this world,
Swiftly lead us each astray,
Yet, the Christmas hymns still tell us,
Every care, on Christ, to lay.
God calls all souls unto Him,
In repentance, to return,
To His only Savior, Jesus,
That, His peace, we gain, not spurn.
The one true Gift of Christmas
Eternal, and unchanged,
God’s Lamb has come to save us,
His pure life, for our sin, exchanged.
In Christ, one life, eternal,
Overcomes our filthy sin:
When we accept Him as Savior,
In us, He dwells, within.
By His grace, He will save us,
As He promised each, of old,
In the one great Christmas story,
That refreshes each time it’s told.
The real Christ of Christmas,
Born to save all willing souls,
He, alone, knows all our weakness,
Yet, His salvation grows not cold.
He knew the coming price,
For the true Gift that He gave,
His blood, for sinners, willing,
Salvation’s Babe in manger hay.
Jesus Christ, He came to save us,
Not deceive us with false joy,
As some red-clothed, bearded fantasy,
Deceiving children with promised toys.
God despises all our idols:
Claus & reindeer, arcane arts:
For, by lying to our children,
We blind them to God’s true heart.
False childhood foundations,
Christ-less dreams all break God’s Law,
For God’s pure love & judgment,
Prove false, the modern Claus.
So, from now on, be careful,
Let’s, now, in truth, all say,
And share God’s Christ of Christmas,
Not a worldly Holiday!
For Christ is the reason for Christmas,
And God’s promises are clear,
That in God’s love and purpose,
His Birth & Sacrifice are dear.
Though worldly “political correctness”
Still treads Christ under their feet,
Show your true love of Jesus,
And join us all to greet,
with a hearty, Merry Christmas!
Each one whom we now meet.

Following the most recent mass shootings, President Obama and Governor Malloy (CT) have both said that they may issue executive orders to begin confiscation of arms from any person or persons they see fit, based on federal security agency watch lists that are developed based sometimes on facts, and sometimes on innuendo, rumors, or guilt by association methodology. There is NO constitutional protection for anyone with regard to watch lists and their development. Yet, this president and governor are eager to begin basing their confiscations on those watch lists. That exact kind of tactic was used during the rise of Hitler's Third Reich and the birthing and growth of the USSR.
Friday, December 11, 2015
Dear Governor Malloy,
With all due respect for your august office, I submit these thoughts that you might reconsider your hasty urge to impose an executive order calling for the use of government watch lists as springboards for the banning of sales, or seizure of, firearms and munitions with respect to persons who happen to be on watch lists. Neither you nor President Obama are on the right track with your respective plans to use watch lists in that manner, for several reasons. If you read nothing else I say, please consider that such lists are very subjective in nature, that they are not consistent from one agency to another, that people who are not "politically in favor" too easily end up on such lists, that without constitutional INITIAL Probable Cause and Due Process any Search or Seizure actions based on such lists are illegal, and finally that use of such lists would help tip off any real terrorists, and drive them farther underground.

Once again, IF people carefully look at the evidence, they will see that the shooter/s did NOT pick a location that allowed law-abiding citizens to carry their firearms. However, the shooter/s DID pick yet another "gun free zone" to perpetrate the evil. Unprotected, sitting-duck victims were once again singled out to be executed.

This President has purged too many well-seasoned U.S. military leaders. He has peddled alien amnesty and compassion for refugees. BUT, this glib President has shucked and jived the public, and miserably failed to boldly address the aggressive nature of Islamic terrorism. He and his supporters repeatedly fail to admit that the official doctrines of Islam call for violence against any who do not convert to their way of life. While refusing to admit these last 1,400 years of ongoing jihad, this President, our so-called leader, mocks our Constitution, fails in his oath of office, and continues to spew his fancy speeches that call for unconstitutional disarmament of our citizenry, even as terrorists and violent criminals continue to slaughter people in the USA and around the world.

Too many people have forgotten the meaning of 2 Peter Chapter 3 Verse 9, in the Bible: "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
Though this passage tells us of the extreme merciful patience that Almighty God has with us, it also tells us that He does NOT excuse people who refuse to repent of their sin AND that He does NOT excuse those who reject His plan of salvation. As you read these scriptures, remember all of the local and global chaos that is growing around us; remember the social decay that you see increasing around you, daily.
A few months ago, I wrote about a recent false prophecy that a Muslim leader made against Israel. We must avoid any attack against Israel, in word or deed. We must not fail to support and encourage them. Anything that is done for or against Israel shall be repaid by God Himself, as Jeremiah Chapter 30 clearly demonstrates. The detail of what God says in Jeremiah 30 goes far beyond the general blessings and curses that God proclaimed to Abraham, in Genesis. We cannot allow ourselves or our leaders to pitch U.S. citizens against the Israel of God, nor can we afford to forsake them.
"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem" for God has made one and only One solution to the problem of human sin.

For many decades I have written, in various venues, about the foundationally urgent biblical mandate that every soul must come to accept and walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, IF one desires to have godly salvation, purpose, peace, and power in this life, as well as in the next life. As one preacher quoted to me, recently, "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." Every plan in life must start with Jesus Christ, if we expect to see it bear godly fruit. Most of the Founders of our Nation understood that truth, and a careful perusal of their writings will affirm that.

10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.

The recent terrorist attacks in Paris prove that President Obama and many others are poor judges of history, as well as poor judges of the social and political troubles in these present times. Our President can be seen, in news replays, offering condolences and support to the grieving citizens of Paris, who were brutally attacked by terrorists, this week. But, at the same time, President Obama continues to cry out for disarmament of law-abiding citizens in the USA. His mouth is running, but he, and other anti-gunners, are WAY out of touch with the verities of life, our Constitution, and the truth and consequences of moral right and wrong. "Yes, Virginia" there really is evil in this world!
Let there be no mistake, mass murder and terrorism are wrong wherever they happen. But, the bald-faced reality is that police and military personnel cannot be everywhere to protect every citizen all the time. Mass murders and terrorist attacks prove themselves to be, once again, solid justification for citizens to responsibly arm themselves with weapons of their own choosing.
Law-abiding citizens in France might well have been able to act in mutual and self-defense to more quickly abbreviate the terrorists' attacks IF the citizens had been allowed to commonly carry weapons for self-defense. But, the truth is that French anti-gun laws are even more strict than those of NYC, NY. Take away people's means of self-preservation and the lawlessness of evil is eager to step into the void and perpetrate violence against the basically unprotected masses of unarmed people, who simply try to get along with each other. Excessive government has proven, once again, that excessive regulation does NOT protect citizens, but rather hampers law-abiding citizens from achieving mutual and self-defense.
Listen to Obama's own comments, only a few months ago, in an anti-firearms polemic, where he dramatically alleged that nothing like the violence of this recent French tragedy ever happens outside the USA. This President is a total embarrassment to our Nation.
Stand up, my fellow citizens, for your constitutional and biblical rights and responsibilities, before those who hate such things have stripped and bound you and the rest of us completely, leading us all to their slaughterhouse.

Let's be honest.
First, prayerfully read Romans 1 and then take a good hard look at our society. Although godly leaders would be nice, we already have God Almighty and His Christ to lead us, if we are not stubborn or rebellious against Him, or against His Bible.
We do not need human superheroes, but rather we need everyday citizens, like you and me, to be willing to stand up for what is good and right in God's eyes. If you and I are willing to give our lives to do that, then we have a fighting chance to overcome the evil that seeks to tear us down, even as God says to contest evil works.
... Now, let's keep reading the Bible and put God's Word into action in each of our lives. This applies to every nation and culture in the world, as God says.

While almost any discussion of firearms tends to raise many or most people's hackles (for one reason or another), this blogger must acknowledge and salute the 60 Minutes TV reporting team for their respectful and even-handed inquiry and programming on November 1st, 2015, in which they broached the topic of smart guns. Before readers start hollering at me, please look up that story: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/smart-guns-60-minutes-lesley-stahl/
The "smart gun" technology doesn't bother me if some firearms owners want to own or use them, though, personally, I have no use for auto-locking firearms, for a host of practical, safety, and defense reasons with which I'll not afflict the reader.
What should alarm all citizens is that, in typical anti-gun illogic (that ignores the reality that outlaws do not care about laws), the reported, exposed boldness of the N.J. law mandated that all N.J. firearms sales should be forced to revert to "smart gun" technology IF even one "smart gun" happened to be purchased by any customer in any state in the USA... if I understand the implications of that law correctly. 60 Minutes was careful to speak with the N.J. lawmaker who is now considering repealing her proscriptive "smart gun" law, since her law has backfired and stirred a tremendous groundswell against the technology. Despite the backfire and the lawmaker's reconsideration of the "wisdom" of that law, the specter remains of the potential future passage of more such laws, which are not beyond the intent or reach of certain "politically correct" elements in society that neither honor nor respect our Constitution, free will, or the basic human rights of self determination, personal responsibility, and defense of self and loved ones.
And speaking of free will and human rights, my last major concern is that so many violent threats were made against the gun store owner when he was simply looking to ply his trade and offer customers something different. If eons of weapons customers had not come to embrace changing technologies then we all would still be throwing rocks at our targets. Granted, as I understand it, the sale of one "smart gun", by that shop owner, would have activated the rule of N.J. law and done grievous injustice to law-abiding citizens and customers everywhere, not just in N.J. However, the misplaced anger and hatred that some have exhibited by raising deadly threats against an honest shopkeeper should better be redirected to reclaim and rebuild nationwide interest and respect for God's Word and our Constitution. IF we are going to educate the public and protect our constitutional rights then we need to put away bitterness and frustration and get busy working together to solve our nation's problems.

With the blessed election of Paul Ryan to take on the duties of Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, it is incumbent upon all U.S. citizens to pitch in and begin tightening our belts and that we might repair our Nation. I just sent the following message to my U.S. Representative Joe Courtney and my U.S. Senators Murphy and Blumenthal, because we are in such desperate moral, spiritual, and financial trouble in our Nation.
"I most strenuously urge you to support and work with Speaker Paul Ryan in the desperate need for the overhaul of most of our current government programs. We have had close to 100 years of increasing government size and dependency. We MUST return the nation to the people, so that each citizen can and shall exercise more authority and responsibility for her/his own life. We MUST return to a literal interpretation of our Constitution so that freedom and opportunity can return to this Nation. Thank you for your time and consideration."
9 Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the LORD, and because of the words of his holiness.
10 For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pleasant places of the wilderness are dried up, and their course is evil, and their force is not right.
11 For both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith the LORD.
12 Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery ways in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein: for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith the LORD.

Jeremiah 22:21 - 22:22
I spake unto thee in thy prosperity; [but] thou saidst, I will not hear. This [hath been] thy manner from thy youth, that thou obeyedst not my voice.
The wind shall eat up all thy pastors, and thy lovers shall go into captivity: surely then shalt thou be ashamed and confounded for all thy wickedness.

... by being wise in your own eyes.
Do NOT be stubborn,
... by rejecting the counsel of God.
Do NOT be as our ancestors,
...who worshipped themselves,
... more than they did God,
... to their own destruction.
Jeremiah Chapter 22:8-9
"And many nations shall pass by this city, and they shall say every man to his neighbour, Wherefore hath the LORD done thus unto this great city?
"Then they shall answer, Because they have forsaken the covenant of the LORD their God, and worshipped other gods, and served them."
1. Whether we admit that sin exists, or not...
2. Whether we admit that God exists, or not...
3. Whether we admit that God has already provided the only plan of salvation, or not...
... there is ONE and ONLY ONE WAY out of our sinful predicament,
and THAT ALONE will provide us with eternal life, starting right now. Trust God and His Christ, and LIVE!

The following survey results sound great, to any citizen interested in human rights, BUT, NOW, start thinking "outside the box" and think of all the millions of concerned, law-abiding citizens whom Gallup never surveyed!
There is no morally or spiritually justifiable reason for law-abiding people to continue to live or act in fear or willful ignorance. BUT, ...it IS time to call everyone to repentance from past errors, fears, and lethargy. Real courage is doing what is right in spite of circumstances, and without regard for one's personal profit or safety, as proven by our Founders. Had they not laid their lives on the line to frame our Nation, we would not be here today! Come on, Citizens, embrace the real cost of real freedom from tyranny. God did not create us in His image so that we could sit around coddled and pampered, or lustful and griping. Life comes with a purpose and a mission, assigned to each of us by God Himself. Read His Word, the Bible, and read our Constitution! Discover His plan for your life!
It is HIGH time for each of us to pick up our respective civil harness and responsibly, personally, shoulder it. The salvation of these United States of America requires that each and every one of us do our spiritual, moral, and civic duties, to help pull this Nation's wagon out of the moral, spiritual, and political mire into which we have allowed the U.S.A. to sink so deeply.
The results of that Gallup survey proves my long-standing point that the further decay or potential resurrection of these United States of America lies not nearly so much in the hands of politicians but that it definitely is firmly within the hands of "We, the People", even as our Founding Documents so clearly stated and proved. Our Forebears even went so far as to proclaim these things before our Creator, whom they boldly and righteously declared to us, their posterity. Any of the on-going, and ever-popular, whining, grumbling, fear, and finger pointing will only serve to further expedite the ruin of our Nation. Only godly repentance, and labors that are righteous and fruitful in His eyes, can save our Nation.
Despite our internal destroyers and detractors, WE CAN work to fix these United States of America, through personal repentance before God and His Christ, personal sacrifice of all that is needed to make this Nation work constitutionally, and as much personal hard work as necessary, dedicating our whole lives to the Word of God and the Constitution's Bible-based principles on which this Nation was founded.
We, the citizens of these United States of America, can not afford to continue to be driven by lust, greed, fear, the love of money, or willful ignorance of God and His Word. Without our express personal desire and determination to turn ourselves and our Nation to the One True and Living God, and to the Constitution which He has granted to us, we shall surely condemn the U.S.A. to a swift descent into hellish things that are far worse than our Nation has ever known or seen (something that can easily be confirmed by a careful and prayerful study of the Bible, once we have trusted Him). Therefore, let us resolve to repent and work to turn ourselves and the U.S.A. away from sure destruction and toward the real life that is described and ordered to us by God's Word and our Constitution.

If is a great word, providing opportunity, hope, and the promise of correction of wrongs. That is especially true when it comes from the mouth of God Almighty.
7 At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;
8 If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
9 And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;
10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.

1 The sin of Judah is written with a pen of iron, and with the point of a diamond: it is graven upon the table of their heart, and upon the horns of your altars;
2 Whilst their children remember their altars and their groves by the green trees upon the high hills.
3 O my mountain in the field, I will give thy substance and all thy treasures to the spoil, and thy high places for sin, throughout all thy borders.
4 And thou, even thyself, shalt discontinue from thine heritage that I gave thee; and I will cause thee to serve thine enemies in the land which thou knowest not: for ye have kindled a fire in mine anger, which shall burn for ever.
5 Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
10 I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.
11 As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.
IF our so-called leaders REALLY cared about human suffering and death, they would immediately set to work to STOP the abortion mills around our Nation. BUT, our so-called leaders continue to approve, protect, AND FUND the abortion killing zones that have slaughtered over 60 MILLION babies since the unholy Supreme Court approved Roe v. Wade.
Such politicians and other similarly immoral people are running in circles shrieking about firearms control, even though they have approved and allowed millions upon millions more children to be slaughtered by abortion than by firearms. In fact, MILLIONS more children have been killed by abortion than all the mass shootings combined, and continue to be butchered. Furthermore, the abortions mills of our Nation have executed millions more innocent children than the grand total of all people killed in all the wars in which our Nation has engaged since its founding!!
It is the bane of our Nation that the public continues to approve the monstrous sin of butchering millions and millions of our own innocent children. Such moral corruption is eating the heart, mind, and soul out of our people. Yet, morally corrupted people continue to make a huge stink about the few people who occasionally killed with firearms. Few? you say? Yes! Compared to abortions, the mass shootings in our Nation consist of a paltry few people being killed.
I mean no disrespect to the dead, for the dead NOW know exactly what I mean, even as Jesus pointed out concerning a certain dead rich man's ability to discern the truth that he'd ignored in life. I also do NOT intend to provoke the suffering of their families. BUT, when the bonfire of public outrage is set ablaze concerning a few people killed in shootings, why are we ALL not making a proportionately huge conflagration about all the millions of butchered babies who have been executed across our Nation? The less that we do to stop the sin of abortion the more that we are going to answer to God for all those millions of premeditated murders of our unborn children. We must repent of the evil of abortion if we every hope to see peace and domestic tranquility in our homes, streets, and government. IF we turn from this sin to God, then we shall find His hope, peace, and true domestic tranquility.

BEFORE SHOOTING OFF THEIR OWN MOUTHS, THE ANTI-GUN CROWD SHOULD REALLY LISTEN TO WHAT THE MURDERER SAID BEFORE and WHILE HE SHOT HIS VICTIMS!!
The only other thing, else, that I'm going to say about his demented, cold-blooded, premeditated, selfishly motivated, murders and assaults is that IF the anti-gun crowd cannot see that evil man's wholly corrupt sin nature and corrupted humanity playing to their audience, and for their entertainment, then those willfully ignorant anti-gun people are damning themselves to repeat such incidents until the end of the world, whether there are any firearms present or not.
I salute each and every soul who suffered or died in that violence, especially those who stood and died for their faith in Jesus Christ. Their experience is a paltry foretaste of what the Bible says is yet to come.

1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder,
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.
5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the LORD thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee.

4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
The Bible, modern news, and ancient history, alike, are all filled with reports of numerous people, groups, and nations that have despised Israel and that continue to seek to destroy it. It is noteworthy that those same haters of Israel seem to equally despise God Almighty. I say that because Israel's detractors clearly ignore God's promises to Israel. Obviously, those who curse and fight against Israel do not want God's blessings on themselves.

...during the 60 Minutes interview with Iranian leader Rouhani, telecast September 20, 2015, didn't it seem like Rouhani made an extra special effort to dodge every question that had anything to do with jihad?! ...especially as jihad has been focused and directed against the USA...
Islam has been trying to gain religious and political supremacy over EVERYONE for a LONG time. How is it that so many non-Islamic people, especially in "politically correct" circles here in the USA, seem to be making an extra effort to ignore the fact of Islam's centuries long, almost eons long, spiritual, religious, and secular war on virtually everyone around them. Don't take my word for it.
There is ONLY ONE WAY OUT of this mess before it becomes a total melee.
