Am I still in America?

There are two things that make my head spin. They make me wonder if I am still  in America. First, the United Socialist Republic of California has labeled the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “terror organization.” That…is NOT a joke. The NRA is one of the oldest organizations in our country and its only interest is in keeping YOUR 2nd Amendment right to protect you and your loved ones by owning a firearm. Its sole purpose is promoting gun safety and calling out politicians who want to confiscate your right to protect yourself. That’s all they do. Make no mistake. The socialist democrats want to TAKE YOUR GUN. But they have no plan to take guns from criminals.

And please note that NONE of the celebrity-seeking shooters in recent times was a member of the NRA. California welcomes MS-13 and other gang members from Mexico and South America, but it thinks law-abiding Americans who are NRA members are “terrorists.” Go figure. While CA streets are filled with human feces, they’re scared of NRA members? Wow! Talk about misguided people. No wonder, 3,000 citizens leave CA every month. (But they are replaced by illegal aliens.)

The second thing that boggles my brain is Walmart’s “declaration” to quit selling ammo for “assault rifles,” specifically the .223 cartridges used in the popular AR-15 rifle. This is BS on Walmart’s part because they want to appeal to the socialist agenda of political parties in the U.S. They will still sell you shotgun shells, 30.06 bullets and a host of other ammunition. If They REALLY thought that they were doing something to stop mentally ill people from killing others they would stop selling ALL ammunition. They will still sell you all the .22 caliber bullets you want, and those can be used, with an adaptor, in the AR-15 as well as .223 ammo.

Almost anything can be an “assault” weapon. How about a kitchen knife? Or a brick? Maybe a rock or a hammer or an automobile. The AR-15 is no more an “assault rifle” than a bow and arrow is. It is a popular sporting firearm because it is small, easy to carry, and is enjoyable to shoot at the range. My AR-15 sits in the closet most of the time and, so far, neither it nor I have killed anyone. And I have been an NRA member since the Boy Scouts.

California is a lost cause. Forget trying to credit them with anything rational. California is ruled by crazy democrats. Walmart is a hypocrite. They cheat their employees and sell you cheap junk made in Chinese slave shops where a worker’s salary is $2.00 A DAY, and they are beaten if they don’t meet their quota. Both CA and Walmart are an affront to true patriotic Americans.
