NRA: Stand and Fight

| January 15, 2013

The folks at the NRA send us a link to their latest campaign Stand and Fight and this is the first of their videos in that campaign.

If the video doesn’t work, it’s also at the link. I’m on my Kindle for the rest of night. Lazy person that I am.

    Anyone who thinks that slavery does not still exist in this country needs to have a long, grinding day in one of the sweatshops populating large cities like Los Angeles and New York, or spend some time in line at a day labor office, where you may or may not get a job and it will be for cash, well below the minimum wage and no benefits. And yes, there are parents in this country who sell their daughters into the sex slave trade. Don’t think for one second it doesn’t still exist.

    Just because it’s illegal, that don’t mean it don’t happen here and everywhere else on this planet.

    @152. Those of us who are married know damn well slavery still exists.

  3. Twist says:

    I think Air Cav just won the internet with that one.

  4. Old Trooper says:

    @154: Agreed.

  5. Ex-PH2 says:

    Oh, pity pooh.

    Are you guys telling me you’re all butt-hurt because you have to take out the trash and pickup after yourselves cause your mommy isn’t here to do it for you?

  6. Old Trooper says:

    @156: Well, duh!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Gruntling says:

    Wow. I get distracted by puppies for a day an already the argument starts back up.

    I miss those pups now.

  8. Ex-PH2 says:

    @153 — Yes. Just ask your wives. “:)

  9. USMCE8Ret says:

    I’d ask, “What’d I miss?” but actually, I spent the last 40 minutes reading from top-to-bottom and I’m all caught up now.

    (…and I noticed Joe is back, and brought Bob and Doug McKenzie with him. Are they gone?)

    Joe? Check out the “Democratic Underground”. They don’t like us, and we don’t like them – but they’d dig you.

    Here we go again.

  10. UpNorth says:

    @160. Joey-boy’s a charter member of DU. That’s where he gets his talking points. Anyone who’s been around TAH for a while knows that Joey-boy has never had an original thought. Or, a thought.

  11. Joe says:

    What you guys and girls may not get is that even some conservatives think that the 2nd amendment fanatics and the NRA are whack.

  12. Twist says:

    @162, How many Democrats are distancing themselves from this?

  13. Old Trooper says:

    @162: Right, Joe; just keep telling yourself that. People like you are walking contradictions; on one side, you argue that we are killing innocents with guns protected by the 2nd Amendment, yet you want to use the same Constitution to continue to kill innocents and call it a “right” with abortion. You can’t have it both ways, numbnuts.

  14. Hondo says:

    Joe: how about some reputable examples to back your claims here?

    And while you’re at it, define “2nd Amendment Fanatics” and give examples there, too. ‘Cause if you’re going to use folks like Alex Jones of “Infowars” fame – well, try again without using a strawman. Folks like Jones “march to the beat of a different drummer” (to be polite). That’s common knowledge among both conservatives and liberals alike.

  15. Joe says:


    I can have it both waysw – a zygote is not a person.

    Hondo, look at the NRA’s ads that drag Sasha and Malia Obama into it…..

    Along different lines, I’ve been meaning to ask – are OldTrooper, NHSparky and UpNorth all the same person? They sure sound alike.

  16. Old Trooper says:

    Joe; have you ever seen what a baby looks like at 12-16 weeks? Maybe if you did, then you wouldn’t talk like a dumbass. Preemies are considered children, yet Obama was all for partial birth abortion and letting a baby born alive during an abortion die in the bucket.

    So, no; you don’t get it both ways when it comes to who has “rights”, since my purchasing a firearm in no way endangers anyone, unless they somehow decide to do something to me that would cause them to be in danger. Your logical failures aren’t holding up and your being fearful of someone owning a firearm doesn’t constitute you being able to dictate if I can have one, or not and whether it can hold 5 rounds or 30.

    Suck it up, buttercup.

  17. O-4E says:

    @166 Joe

    So you alone can pick and choose what a person is…my kids came from zygotes…as did you and I.

    Once again..people of your ilk think it is A-OK for a person (the mother) to serve a death sentence to that child (with or without the father’s consent..or even a good reason)…but 1/100th of a second after it is out of the birth canal it is a tragedy if someone with a black scarry rifle shoots it. It’s Ok to kill a baby in the womb…but not ok when it is out of the womb? WTF? Seriously.

    Using your train of thought you should be concerned about crazy people having guns…not guns themselves…or responsible owners who have a Constitutional right to have them.

    Obama’s kids? Yep…protected. Very well. I want the ability to protect my own children and family since the US taxpayer isn’t going to do it for me. And I have that ability. Unless you and your kind get their way. What concern are my guns to you?

  18. Old Trooper says:

    BTW, Joe, you still haven’t come back with real numbers on gun murders and those gun murders committed with rifles or those committed with the dreaded “assault rifle”. Why? Do you need some help? Ok, I will help you.

    These are the FBI numbers for 2011:
    8,583 total murders with guns.
    323 with rifles of all flavors.
    496 with hammers and clubs.
    1,694 with knives.

    By these numbers; you should be out there petitioning for a ban on knives over “assault rifles”, considering that of the rifles murders, only a very small percentage were committed with an “assault rifle” with a “high capacity magazine”.

    Of all gun murders, “assault rifles” with “high capacity magazines” were used .6% of the time (based on the data that since the AWB expired in 2004, there has been 385 murders using “assault rifles” and extrapolated over that period of time equals an average of 48 per year).

    Now; maybe people would take you serious if you left your emotional metro-sexual proclivities out of the conversation and stick to logic and common sense. Ack, who am I kidding, that’s all you have.

  19. NHSparky says:

    Sorry to disappoint, Joey. I’m just me. No sockpuppets.

    But who I am is one of those guys you pissed your pants over because I had one of those “evil scary guns” in the rifle rack in the back of my truck that I used to go hunting before/after school back in the day.

    Funny how we never had school shootings nearly as often back then, ain’t it? Almost never even heard of them, come to think of it.

  20. USMCE8Ret says:

    @170 – While in high school in N. Texas years ago, kids would routinely have shotguns/rifles in the back of their truck and we’d routinely get a group together and go hunting after school. Some would just ditch class altogether.
    Of about 30 of us that regularly kept a firearm in a truck or car, none of us even THOUGHT about using the gun in school or against each other.

    Of course, back then if we had a dispute, we’d settle it elsewhere and without weapons because we were taught different coping skills than most folks have today, and respected the law.

  21. Old Trooper says:

    @171: Yep, we did that, too, and no one was even remotely thinking of using their shotgun, out in the truck, for anything other than hunting after school. In fact, some of the teachers had theirs with them, also.

    As for Joe; where did ya go? Why don’t you come back and argue that viscous pack of facts that I presented to you? Are you still waiting for your next talking points from the Brady Campaign? I want to read all your emotional drivel as you attempt to dismiss the facts. If nothing else, it’s entertaining watching you get your underoos all twisted up.

  22. Hondo says:

    Joey-boy: that’s rich. If that’s the best example you can come up with of “extremist” stuff, you’re dead meat in this argument. You might as well STFU. Your claim is so obviously BS it’s not worth debunking.

    Whether or not you realize it, you’re also being both despicable and hypocritical. You use openly admit you’re OK with using murdered innocents – the responsibility for whose death is due to liberal-backed laws barring involuntary commitment of lunatics – for political gain. Yet you have the freaking gall to complain about anyone pointing out the fact that the POTUS’s kids go to a school with armed security?

    Do you have absolutely no shame whatsoever? Geez, are you even freaking smart enough to look up the word “hypocrite”?

  23. Ex-PH2 says:

    Sales are still increasing.

    Joey-boy strikes me as the kind of person who doesn’t give a crap about anyone but himself, but will block traffic at a horrific accident (gaper’s block) just to get a chance to see how much blood is on the pavement.
