This is nothing short of fantastic. This school teacher gave both a passionate and factual statement to the New Jersey State Assembly Law and Safety Committee on why we have a 2nd amendment.

Just watch:

    Wow! Blowback!

    • bbitter

      Blowback is right. That cannon just went off, and it was loaded for bear.

      I’m betting there are state legislators who are re-thinking their policies on silencers right now, cuz they would love to quiet that cannon. Too late. God bless her and give her a greater platform for that message.

    Obama would have better luck outlawing cigarettes and beer than firearms. That may be next on his agenda though. However he and his ilk will get the same blow-back from this
    vet should they try.

    • OneThinDime

      Right! And with all the tobacco lawsuits, you’d think that would be Target #1 because “If it could save one life”

    • badbadlibs

      Since oboumo is a smoker, he may make outlawing cigarettes a low priority, but then he doesn’t seem to mind breaking the law….
      Thank you, maynardb50 for your service!

      But, then if you pay attention to the msm (wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t) you would think the 2nd Amendment was the worst thing to happen to mankind! Hopefully you’re right.

    I posted this here yesterday when it had only 4K views but don’t think many saw it. Not sure how many views it has now. The folks at Weasel Zippers have it up on their site today. It’s a 2 minute video. Several different women shooting a 12 gauge shotgun versus one shooting an AR-15…you know, to further illuminate what a know-nothing dolt Biden is:

    Long live our second amendment rights. The glue that binds the rest of our Constitution together and keeps both foreign and domestic enemies from handing us repeats of history’s documented fate around the world.

    Yesterday I wanted D. Feinstein to “kiss me…right on the tailbone”.

    This lady above, I want to kiss…right on the mouth.

    OK, beside the mouth, the forehead, and the hand…while running my fingers through her hair :-)

        She reminds me of Mrs Merrill, who had to tell us in the 4th grade, with tears in her eyes, that she could no longer read to us each morning from the Bible or say prayers :-(

        She was already in her sixties back then. God rest her sweet soul.

        Funny, I thought she reminded me of my 3rd grade teacher. The meanest one in the school- or so we all thought at the time, but she was the best teacher who genuinely cared about her students.

        • OneThinDime

          And my 2nd grade teacher. Same is true, one of the best teachers I had and she genuinely cared about her students.

  • http://navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    “The Hitlers of the world only go after the sheep that are cowering in the corner.” Wow, no truer words have ever been spoken. I think the world has forgotten mankind’s ability to exterminate those individuals it doesn’t seem to care for. Even though we have more recent examples of tyrannies going after various groups of people, such as the Muslim Brotherhood going after the Christians, the psychotic hatred Islamists have for Jews, or even another deadly example of Bosnian Serbs exterminating Muslims, the bottom line is that all of this is only possible when the minority is unable to protect itself from the tyrant. And even when the Jews finally stood up for themselves during the Warsaw ghetto uprising in 1943, by then it was too late. Millions would perish in the camps simply because a minority could not protect itself from a tyrannical majority. Always remember that the patriots during the Revolutionary War were never in the majority. Only about a third were patriots; another third were loyalists, and the final third were neutral. Soon all Americans will need to take sides in this debate and will not have the luxury of remaining neutral.

    • Rshill7

    • OneThinDime

      Obama and his Marxist Admin is counting on the decades past, the survivors deceased and the Jews in denial. This woman needs to be called by Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham or Steve Stockman to testify before Congress.

    • 1endtimes2020

      The countries and leaders are different, but the struggle between good and evil is the same. Evil has changed mother Europe. Evil has strenthened China and Islamic terrorism. Now evil is working on the Big Prize—the destruction of America.
      Christian unity has never been so necessary as it is now. Jesus said “a house divided against itself will not stand”. He also said when people are united, nothing is impossible. SIN has been the door opener to evil as never experienced before in the whole world. America has so many ‘nice people’ enemies within, who are very active and will use every device to fulfill their evil agendas.

  • 1tootall

    This proves a couple of things. 1) Not ALL teachers are in the bottom 1/3 of their graduating classes. There are some VERY smart teachers and they deserve all the support we can muster. 2) The Bill of Rights is deeply ingrained in our society. It is often said Obama does not understand our way of life, and then the libs all stand up and demand proof. Well the 2nd amendment is part of our founding concepts and documents, and his demand to disarm American citizens shows how far out of it he really is. This speech gives me great encouragement.

    • badbadlibs

      There’s a good reason it’s often said obumo does not understand our way of life, I always say it’s because he was not brought up in America. He knows nothing about the American way, her ideals, the principles she was founded on and thereafter taught and lived.
      He has never visited Main Street America, he couldn’t find it if led by his blood stained hands and wouldn’t recognize it if he got there.
      He was raised by America haters and no where near this fine country.
      It’s forever to the shame of the people who put him in power. What morons.

  • colliemum

    Wow!
    A pity she can’t make those gun control freaks write out the 2nd Amendment, in perfect script, five hundred times. By tomorrow.

    Another little-known fact: Hitler made the Germans hand in their radios, all the radios.
    Later, they were ‘allowed’ to buy radios which could only receive German broadcasts.
    Jewish households who were found with a radio went straight to you-know-where.
    A few intrepid radio nerds managed to get the BBC – but listening to that was punished with the death penalty.
    That’s the way to control a population …

    • bjohnson55

      Control of the media back then is not much different than what we have today. It is the most dangerous threat to develop over the last 20 years in this country since we no longer have a watch dog on the Government anymore we have attack dog media waiting to tear into any successful Conservative at the behest of the Progressives in Government. Dangerous, very dangerous…

      • badbadlibs

        Bingo, bjohnson55! hitler…er, obumo doesn’t need to confiscate “radios”, the “radio” operators, station owners and advertisers happily comply with the tyrant in the WH.

  • dlg1956

    The politicians know that they are in deep shit, if they don’t pass gun confisciation they will be voted out by those that remember, if they do they will become traitors and targets for those who know that tryanny has to disarm the population before it can begin its evil.

    Either way, the politicians will loose. From this point on there is no turning back and there is no retreat. I hear the war drums sounding and Patrick Henry’s famous words echoing around the nation.

    How did this great lady who has been a lifelong member of the NRA. Is a fire-arms instructor, was able to stand vigilant and true against the leftest teachers union? Kudos to her for believing in the Constitution and being firm to her convictions.
    Here are a few quotes from my favorite founding father and 3rd president of the united states-Thomas Jefferson.
    ” No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”-TJ Draft to the Virginia Constitution 1776.
    ” None but an armed nation can dispense with a standing army. To keep ours armed and disciplined is therefore at all times important”. -Thomas Jefferson 1803
    ” The constitution of most States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”-Thomas Jefferson to John Cartwright 1824
    ” one loves to possess arms, though they hope never to have occasion for them”.- Thomas Jefferson to George Washington 1796

  • NJK

    Good for her. I think every household should be required and trained in firearms, just like Switzerland. There wouldn’t be as much crime. An armed society is a polite society.

  • stage9

    You know I was thinking about the “muskets’ argument being put forth by liberals today.

    The argument goes that because our founders only intended the 2nd Amendment to apply to hunting that only hunting rifles should be legal for US citizens. In other words, because “military-style” weapons weren’t intended by the founders to be used by non-military personnel then they shouldn’t be allowed to own one.

    But where is this stipulation provided in the Constitution? Where is the “hunting clause”?

    If we’re going to use the founding era as a test for the proper allocation of citizen firearms, then shouldn’t we also expect that from the federal government as well?

    The US military of the founding era used cannons, muskets, flintlock pistols, swords & sabers as part of its military arsenal.

    Because the Constitution does not specify the exact nature of weaponry the US government is allowed to use, and “we the people” should only be limited to a “musket-equivalent”, should not the federal government also be limited to the modern equivalent of cannons, muskets, flintlock pistols, swords & sabers as part of its arsenal?

    If so, then the government should be limited to only M2 mortars, M777 Howitzers, bolt action rifles, Derringers (single-shot), and a selection of knives and machetes. After all, these are the modern day equivalents to the founding era’s weaponry.

    All predator drones, missiles, rockets, tanks (diesel engines weren’t invented yet) satellite and computer-aided assets should be confiscated and destroyed immediately as the founders could not POSSIBLY have foreseen these as instruments of future warfare in their day.

    HOWEVER, if the 2nd Amendment is meant to apply to whatever “weaponized deterrent” gives the citizenry the best advantage to dispel tyranny, in whatever age, then “military-style” weaponry, which includes AR-15’s, is a legitimate countermeasure to whatever the federal government has in use today.

    If the federal government believes that it is necessary to protect American citizens with more sophisticated weaponry, then so should we as free citizens be given the same latitude in our choice of weapons, otherwise, the federal government is no more in compliance with the founding fathers than we are. Because in colonial times the musket WAS a “military style assault rifle”.

    But I doubt you’ll ever hear the federal government make that argument.

    Obama isn’t going to genocide the American people. He’s not even going to take our guns. Heck, he’s not even going to take our so-called “assault riffles.” The Democrats introduced an “assault riffles” ban, but that ban itself doesn’t even have enough votes to pass Senate. The Democrats didn’t even propose an all out gun ban.
