    John Lott vs Media Matters

    "Media Matters claims that all those stopped by the background checks from buying guns are prohibited individuals, that no mistakes are made by the government. And Media Matters is willing to engage in any amount of name calling and fraudulent photos to attack those who question their claims."

    John Lott will reply to each of those points as he always does. Media Matters is another George Soros inspired progressive liberal hack site. They will fail, just like all the others.

    Edited to add: Well here it is already, John Lott's response:

    Media Matters has even expressed outrage over a post at BigGovernment that it seemed that everyone understood, “[Lott's] assertion that ‘The Obama administration has been a consistent opponent of gun ownership.’” Yet, Media Matters doesn’t even try to defend Obama’s push for the U.N.’s Arms Trade Treaty or the nomination of Andrew Traver to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms given his anti-gun statements in the past, let alone Obama’s appointments to the Supreme Court and other lower courts. It tells us something when Media Matters can’t even admit this simple fact.
    The Obama administration is only against gun ownership for US Citizens.

    They seem to be ALL FOR gun ownership if you are a Mexican drug cartel, seeing as how they supplied thousands of firearms to them through the BATFE's "Fast and Furious" operation:

    And they seem to be ALL FOR giving guns to Libyan "rebels"--who they ADMIT are actually Al-Qaeda--to fight against Gaddafi:

    And they sure don't mind selling munitions by the boat-load to Israel, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Iraq either...

    But if YOU want to buy two rifles in one transaction, you're on a "list" now...

    Welcome to the "Century of Change", folks...

    Good points, Dreamer!

    I'll add that the reason they're willing to ship arms to those countries is to help the rebels protect themselves against the onorous actions of their leaders, as well as the criminal element, while denying us the same here at home.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    And I'd have to disagree with that...

    For instance in Libya, the majority of the "rebels" are actually Al-Qaeda, as confirmed by CIA and MI6 assets on the ground, and yet we are aiding, equipping, and "advising" them like they're our BFFs...

    We are arming "rebels" in that region because of a half-century-long con game to build up the wealth of the Middle East, and then ransack it all back into the International Banking Cartels coffers, through engineered destabilization and intentional fomenting of "revolutions". Read Carroll Quigley and Lindsey Williams. It's all there in black and white, with copious footnotes and documentation.

    If you think for one minute that the "revolutionaries" in Egypt, Libya, or Yemen are even considering a type of government even remotely resembling democracy, you are delusional--they want to set up tribal tyrannies, based on Taliban-type despotism like what happened in Afghanistan after the USSR was driven out in the 1980's...

    If your idea of democracy is no elections, women and children viewed as property slightly less valuable than camels and cows, mass destruction of priceless cultural artifacts in the name of "cultural purity", forced female genital mutilation as a "religious sacrament", and capital punishment for women who are rape victims, then we must be using VERY different dictionaries...
