You know the one #gunsense statement that annoys me the most? “At what point does my right to live, trumps your gun obsession?” My reply “My guns and protection are far more important than your life.” My response may be a little harsh, but it’s the truth.
Laws do not protect, they punish law breakers. A gun does a better job of protecting me than a book of laws that criminals ignore.

You chosen the path of out sourcing your protection and the protection of your love ones to the government.
But what happens when the government you choose to entrust claims no duty to protect you or your love ones?

Take the #pulse night club shooting for example. At one point in the chaos the Orlando Police Department were unable to enter the building for 3 hours.

Breaking News! Gun collectors and mass shooters aren’t the same. While all sane minded, rational individuals know this, insane #gunsense advocates have failed to understand this concept.
Firearms are like any other tool. They come in different shapes, sizes and calibers. Most people collect them for different reasons. Family, tradition, self defense, craftsmanship, American right and all around fun, are some of the reasons why we collect guns.
But it has come to my attention recently that some #GunControl #Liberals have been having difficulties understanding the difference between a mass shooter and a gun collector. I thought I would offer a public service by explaining the two. Thank me later.

So last night while minding my own business on Twitter I received the following notification. Most #guncontrol liberals freak out when they see a bunch of guns owned by 1 or 2 people. This person is no exception. She reported me to the @FBI & @DHSgov then immediately blocked me.
I’m use to #gunsense advocates doing this on Twitter. I wasn’t going to pay it any mind and continue on with my fun filled night of working. However I wanted to know why she did this, so I decided to investigate. I logged into my other account @DarkNike0815 & began a conversation
She was triggered by my picture because she had recently lost a friend in the 2017 Las Vegas shooting massacre. My picture apparently reminded her of the Las Vegas shooter. The only similarity here is that he owned more then 20 guns. Never mind that he was twice my age and white

What’s the fastest and easiest way to get elected to public office? Pass #GunControl laws that you know can’t be enforced and criminals don’t follow. Wait for crime rates to go up. Run on being tough on crime and blame pro gun groups and gun manufacturers for past failed gun laws
Convince your base and people who aren’t familiar with gun related crime statistics that America has a gun problem. Never show true gun related crime statistics compared to the number of guns owned by law abiding citizens. Refuse to link defensive gun use to lives saved by guns
Say you’re pro gun and you respect the second amendment, then systematically use every trick in the #gunsense heart strings playbook to limit that right for a broad group of people. Pass more vague #guncontrol laws and call it reasonable.

#Gunsense: Gun owners are paranoid. #GunReform isn’t about disarming law abiding citizens.

Also #Gunsense: We should ban military style assault rifles. Why does anyone need a gun like that? If anyone does not turn in their AR15s they should face jail time.
#gunsense: Ban the AR15. Those are only designed to kill.

Also #gunsense: all guns are designed to kill.
#GunSense: you carry a gun because you live in fear. Who trying to kill you? Why are you carrying a gun around?

Also #Gunsense: there has been 310 mass shootings this year alone! We need #guncontrolnow! Enough is enough!

#Gunsense: If Blacks bought a bunch of AR-15s, the #GOP would ban them by the end of week.

Me: “Tweets a smart ass reply while sharing a picture of me with my AR-15 collection.”

#GunSense: You need your head checked and your guns taken away by the FBI and ATF.

Me: “I’ll never vote for or support someone who has armed security and pushes for #GunControl. Seems hypocritical.”

#Gunsense: “But Carl, they need their armed security, their life is under constant threat.”

Me: So is all of our lives, that why we need #GunReformNow, right?
If they can find a need for armed protection, why can’t we? Politicians and celebrities have been trying to convince the public that we need #GunReform, and that we are incapable of protecting our own lives with firearms. But yet, they have armed security.
If your security is allow to carry firearms, then every other law abiding citizen should be allowed.

The #ThousandOaksShooter took advantage of unarmed people and proceeded to kill and injure the innocent. Why? Because California #GunControl failed them.

Gun suicide deaths by state for 2016. For 20,000 people, mostly men, guns are the means. States in red have seen sharper increases. 85% of suicide attempts by gun are fatal. #gunsuicides #publichealth

Stats of the State - Suicide Mortality cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom… via @CDCgov
The CDC can track data on gun deaths, but since 2001, the passing of the Dickey Amendment effectively blocked expansive CDC research on the public health effects of firearms.
2016 CDC budget :

$50,000: to track data on all injuries nationwide, including firearm-related ones.

$11 million: for research and prevention of arthritis 

$6 million for research into prion disease, a fatal illness that affects an estimated 300 people each year.

1/8 Thousand Oaks mass shooter was a mentally deranged gun control advocate. He shot 12 people to demonstrate what the government does to stop gun violence is not enough. These are his last entries on Facebook, day before the shooting:
2/8 'I hope people call me insane..(laughing emojis).. wouldn't that just be a big ball of irony?
'Yeah.I'm insane, but the only thing you people do after these shootings is 'hopes and prayers'.. or 'keep you in my thoughts'... every time... and wonder why these keep happening..'
3/8 This is language commonly used by gun control advocates when they ask for new, stricter gun restrictions. Yes, the shooter was a vet affected by PTSD and he was crazy, nobody is contesting this fact.

Every democrat across the country, running for office or is currently in office, have the same fake message. “we support the #2A”. Of course they are lying. They tolerate #2A or is down right against it. These people are straight up liars and it’s blatantly clear.
You can’t say you believe that gun owners are responsible, but then say that gun owners aren’t responsible enough to own AR-15. Millions of responsible gun owners own tens of millions AR-15s across the country. Yet we have less than 1% of these rifles being use to murder people
Assault weapon is a political term that is used to describe a semi automatic rifle with certain cosmetic features which doesn’t make the gun anymore dangerous. It is not a weapon that is used by a the United States military, it has never been used in a theater of war.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Carlton and I’m a constitutional conservative. I believe what is best for me, may not be best for others. I use to be a Democrat and a #guncontrol liberal until 3 bullets woke my ass up. In other words, I was a victim of a home invasion.
After being shot, I started to research and invest into the second amendment. From there I was bitten by the #guncollecting bug. I grew my gun collection from a single maverick 88 shotgun to the 25 guns you see in this video. I did this with hard work and determination.
While researching the second amendment and #gunculture as a whole, I became an advocate for both. Becoming a advocate on behalf of #gunowners was met with a onslaught of bashing and criticism. Many of my liberal friends didn’t like my new found hobby, so they distance themselves.

It’s easy to call for common sense #GunSense laws from behind a fence in a gated community, that is monitored by 24 hour armed security.

Try living in a neighborhood where violence is frequently perpetrated by violent gangs who laugh at these do nothing #gunsense laws.
Where police, fire rescue and emergency paramedics response times are twice that of your gated communities.

Where hearing gun shots at night is a part of the hazards of your living environment. A environment that #gunsense cares nothing about until it fits their narrative
Where walking to school may be your last day of walking to school.

Where your childhood, elementary school best friend, may not make it to high school with you because of the gang violence in your neighborhood

This guy doesn’t represent gun culture or gun owners. This guy represents cowards, who happens to own guns.

Don’t let the left fool you into believing that this idiot is a #2A supporter. He’s a tyrant by another name. Shooting women and children in the back is a cowardly move.
Mass murderers, irresponsible people and racist does not represent gun culture. Anti gun advocates would have you believe that. They would have you think that all gun owners are racist or thugs. We represent freedom of choice and freedom of self defense.
We will not be persecuted simply because we believe in a basic human right of self preservation. Our defense tools and practices aren’t up for debate, interpretation or irrational feelings of overreacting, anti gun public. Our self defense guns are nothing to fear.

The officer out in Dallas Texas who shot a man inside of is own apartment made a tragic mistake. I don't think she set out to kill this man. In other words, I don't think she murdered him. However she should face the consequences of her actions.

#GunSense #2A
Oh, one more thing. Stop making this into a race and cop issue. I believe if this was a black woman and she wasn't a cop, she would have reacted the same way. This woman made a mistake that part is clear, so she should have her day in court to answer for her actions.
I feel bad for the gentleman that was killed. Everyone should feel safe inside their own home. Your home is your castle. I wish didn't happened. 1 person life has been extinguished, while the other person involved has to live with the guilt of extinguishing that life.

This is why I’ve joined @MomsDemand. my daughter came home from school today anxious about “the lockup drill” because her classroom doesn’t have a closet. A closet for her to hide in in the event of a shooter. She’s 7. She’s fucking 7.

Fortunately I live in DC and we have some of the strictest gun-control laws in the US. But we’re right next to VA and MD and their lax gun laws/loopholes carry consequences here. PLEASE VOTE for #gunsense come November, your neighbors and schools need you to

Don’t share footage of mass shootings. It just spawns more copycats.
Or audio. Esp for clicks. Don’t think you are doing it for the public good.
