11Preteen vs. Illegal Alien Home Invaders

December 12, 2007

     I received a E-mail the other day I wanted to share.  It involves a eleven year old girl left at home alone and how she handled a couple of intruders.  It reads as follows:

Shotgun Preteen vs. Illegal Alien Home Invaders —
Butte ,  Montana November  5, 2006

Two illegal aliens, Ralpheal  Resindez,
23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11  year old Patricia Harrington after her father had left their two-story  home.

It seems the two crooks never learned two things: they were  in Montana and Patricia had been a clay shooting champion since she was  nine.

Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke  through the front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father’s  room and grabbed his 12 gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.

Resindez  was the first to get up to the second floor only to be the first  to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the 11- year- old’s  knee crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his abdomen and genitals.

When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the  left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death  before medical help could arrive.

It was found out later  that Resindez was armed with a stolen .45 caliber handgun he took from  another home invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David Burien,  was not so lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Ever  wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, MSNBC, or ABC news….God  I love this kid..

     Now this is a case of firearms in a home with kids and proper training.  I owned a bunch of guns when I married my wife and her two young sons.  the first thing I did was take them and her mother up into the near by canyons and show them all what a gun could do and how dangerous they were.  then I proceeded to teach them all, all four how they operated and how they were loaded and then all fired them to their hearts content.  I removed the curiosity, and fear of them.  I have always kept them locked up except when I felt a need for them.  Now days with just my wife and me here they still reside in a huge gun safe except for the .45 I keep by my bedside in a pistol box attached to my bed frame.  It has a finger pad opening devise on it so I can open it in the dark.  I have my share of illegals in the area, in fact we are over run with them.  If they ever try to break in here I’ll dish out some eleven year old greetings to them.  Unless Hillary or Obama get in and take them away from us.

FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE

June 27, 2007

          As you will be well aware if you have read some of my previous posts, I am a gun owner and shooter, as are all of my children and grandchildren.  I come from a long line of patroits who have bore and used firearms in the defense of our country.  None of us were ever criminals or have ever used a fire arm to cause harm to others.  but we all reserved the right to posess and use if  necessary a firearm to defend our families or ourselves if necessary.  As a Fathers Day gift my oldest son has pledged to arange a shooting date for the two of us as soon as  possible  It is an outting I am looking forward to.  I recieve E-mail from family and freinds and other interested parties pertaining to the use of firearms. and felt that a few of them might be of interest to some of you.  Possibly, a few of you may disagree and think we are wild eyed terriorests.  If so I only pity you – I would give a pretty penny (I’ll even shine it with brasso) to have a shot at some of those who assisted in the 9-11 attacts.  I would demostrate to them what good gun control is!

     The following are a few of the E-mails I have recieved and wish to pass on.      

     I came across this email with a humorous yet truthful slant on firearms and wanted to share:

FIREARMS REFRESHER COURSE

a. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject.
b. A gun in the hand is better than a cop on the phone.
c. Smith & Wesson: The original point and click interface.
d. Gun control is not about guns; it’s about control.
e. If guns are outlawed, can we use swords?
f. If guns cause crime, then pencils cause misspelled words.
g. Free men do not ask permission to bear arms.
h. If you don’t know your rights you don’t have any.
i. Those who trade liberty for security have neither.

Now this amusing list has been making it’s way around the net so I don’t know the original source, but a quick search of “Firearms Refresher Course” via google will point you to a ton of blogs, articles and websites referencing the FRC.  GeeksWithGuns has an entry that includes 17 additional amusing points. I’ll mention here that I’m not a regular visitor of this particular website so I am only referencing them for their additional 17 points – Amusing and true takes on the 2nd ammendment – the right to bear arms! Here they continue:

j. The United States Constitution ? 1791. All Rights Reserved.
k. What part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand ?
l. The Second Amendment is in place in case they ignore the others.
m. 64,999,987 firearms owners killed no one yesterday.
n. Guns only have two enemies: Rust and Politicians.
o. Know guns, know peace and safety. No guns, no peace nor safety.
p. You don’t shoot to kill; you shoot to stay alive.
q. 911 – government sponsored Dial a Prayer.
r. Assault is a behavior, not a device.
s. Criminals love gun control – it makes their jobs safer.
t. If Guns cause Crime, then Matches cause Arson.
u. Only a government that is afraid of it’s citizens tries to control them.
v. You only have the rights you are willing to fight for.
w. Enforce the “gun control laws” we have, don’t make more.
x. When you remove the people’s right to bear arms, you create slaves.
y. The American Revolution would never have happened with Gun Control.
z. “…a government by the people, for the people…”

     These are a few of the things that most of us gun owners feel.  Also I would like to point out that the U. S . news media and many of our politicians would have you believe that the members of the NRA (National Rifle Association) are nuts and fruit cakes.  The real reason they hate us is that we stand united in blocking their  own agendas.   The Association is comprised of every segment of the American population from top to the bottom.  The grass roots is so broad that you can hardly walk across the lawn with out steping on a bunch of us.  In every city across the country, like New York City and Washington D.C. where severe gun control is in existence, thousands of Americans have been denied the right granted them by the US consitution to defend themselves from aggressors.  In states like Arazonia, Where the population has the right to bear arms, the crime rate lags behind other states.  A thug is afraid to attempt an event on a person he thinks may be able to defend theirself.  I had a friend in Australia who visited me one year and he was so envious of my right to have handguns he could hardly stand it.  Their government took all their guns away, then one idiot went on a rampage with a sword and they outlawed them also.  Britian’s crime rate is out of control because you are severly restricted on the ability to defend yourself in any matter (you open yourself to prosecution or lawsuit).  Makes sense don’t it?

    Well hell I’m either preaching to the congregation or people with wax in their ears –  Either way it is a waste of time.  So Adios!

WWII, Tokyo Rose and Troop Demoralization

June 26, 2007

     If you have ever watched many of the old World War Two movies  about the war with Japan in the Pacific you will be familiar with Tokoy Rose.  She is usually potrayed as a beautiful Ashian woman sitting before a mike with Japanesse Officers standing behind her.  Her  job was to demoralise our troop fighting the Japaneese.  To retain their interest she played popular music from America, which the troops could not pick up from home stations.  This is a little diffrent from my other postings as it contains mostly subjct matter gleaned through E-mail and other  internet sourceses.

I do not know the exact origin of the opinions below   I recevied them via email with many forwards prior to my receiving it.  Tokyo Rose is an interesting story stemming from the World War Two.   According to wikipedia:

“Tokyo Rose (alternate spelling Tokio Rose) was a generic name given by Allied forces in the South Pacific during World War II to any of approximately twenty English-speaking female broadcasters of Japanese propaganda.”

     According to EarthStation1,  one woman was single out and tried as Tokyo Rose  – Iva Ikuko Toguri.   Ask Yahoo also confirms this in their post Who was Tokyo Rose?.  You can read more about the Tokyo Rose legend at any of the links noted above,  or google Tokyo Rose for an overwhelming amount of data to sift through.

      Now on to the interesting opinions I received via email and find myself agreeing with wholeheartedly:

Subject: Tokyo Rose

 There are a few parallels here.

 The other night we watched a movie called, “Flags of our Fathers.”  During the movie, I pointed out the radio broadcast of “Tokyo Rose.”

 She had the best music on her station. During World War II; the Japanese developed a way to demoralize the American forces.  Psychological warfare experts developed a message they felt would work.

 They gave the script to their famous broadcaster “Tokyo Rose” and every day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different  ways.

 The Japanese hoped it would have a negative impact on American GI’s morale.

 What was that demoralizing message? It had three main points:

 1. Your President is lying to you.

 2. This war is illegal.

  3. You cannot win the war.

 Does this sound familiar today?

      It is because we are being bombarded by Tokyo Hillary, Tokyo Harry, Tokyo Teddy, Tokyo Nancy, Tokyo Murtha, etc. ,and they have picked up  the same message and are broadcasting it on Tokyo CNN, Tokyo ABC, Tokyo CBS, Tokyo NBC, etc., to our troops.

      The only difference is that they claim to support our troops before  they demoralize them. Come to think of it, Tokyo Rose told the troops she was on their side, too.

Now I am a inactive United States Marine (for many years as you all know).  And I am truthfully disapointed with the way this current war is being handled and I also am at lost as how to bring it to a successfull conclusion.  But I at no time am ready to abandon my support of our fighting men & women in this troubled shit hole of the world.  And it sickens me to see that smug Nancy P. and fat assed, bloated, woman drowning Teddy Kennedy,  (maybe some of you are not old enough to remember the Chappaquiddick incident, and how the Kennedy money let a manslaughterer walk free) , and their Ilk spouting their two faced crap in the name of representing me, when I so strongly disagree with their assement.  Damn this is enough to make my blood pressure medication inefective, so I’ll stop this rant here.

My Guns Yesterday and Today

April 21, 2007

     If you have read many of my earlier stuff, You will know by this time I am a shooter.  As I stated before, I could shoot the center of the “O” out of a Tomato can, by the age of nine.  I have that .22 rifle stored in my gun safe today.  I inherited it from my father, it has not been shot in years.  I can not begin to number the guns I have owned and traded in the far distant past.  The laws in California are so strict it is difficult to transfer a firearm to my son or grandson.  The laws are much stricter today than in the past.

     In the days of the early sixties, when transporting a handgun I was required to carry it in the front seat where it was visiable upon approach of a police officer.  On three different occasions I was stopped by law enforcement officers with hand guns in the car.  The first comes to mind involved three friends and me.  We were searching for a place to shoot past the area of Lake Elsinore, Ca..  As young guys are wont to do we were talking and enjoying each others company.  As we zipped down the highway past the town of Elsinore we were literally flying low with no traffic to contend with.  Suddenly there were bubble gum lights and a wail behind us.  I quickly pulled to the side and stopped.  Now here is the situation I had, there were at least six revolvers laying on the seat between me and the guy riding shotgun.  When the motorcycle officer stepped to the window he of course spied the bunch of guns in evidence.  He took a step back and placed his hand on his side arm.  Then he got a good look at us.  The two in the back seat were leaning forward with their hands clasped  and fingers intertwined tightly resting on the back of the front seat.  The friend in shotgun had his right arm out the window with his hand grasping the drip rail and the left open on the dash.  I had my left hand grabbing my drip rail and my right hand clamped tightly on the top of the steering wheel.  He looked at our frozen tableau and burst out laughing.  He then inquired if I knew how fast I was going?   I replied no.  I was then told I was going over ninety miles a hour.  I was surprised as I did not know that 58 Ford could travel that fast.  After checking my drivers license and registration.  He asked if we were looking for a place to shoot?  With my answer of yes he then proceeded to give me directions as where to go .  Then turning serious he said I’m going to give you a verbal warning and let you go, just don’t make the other traffic look like it’s standing still.  I feel to today that it was the demeanor we displayed that caused him to be as lenient as he was.

     On a second occasion a few years later, I and a roommate were returning home about two AM one morning when we were stopped by two members od the Sheriff’s Department just because it was late and we were two young guys.  We had two .45 Cal Colts in the front seat again.  It was a dark street with no lights near by.  Upon stopping We started to exit the vehicle the Deputy commanded us to remain in the car.  I called back to him there are two handguns on the seat.  Step out of the car with your hands visible came the quick command.  There again after a check of license again we were allowed to go on to our home just a few blocks away.  We had really done nothing wrong and were just stopped because it was late and dark.  They accepted our explanation that we had been shooting earlier and were finally returning home from a friends house.  There again cooperation was the key for the out come.
