    Matt Bracken starts talking around 2:30 in this clip. I am a great fan of his and he always brings things to light that give me thought. He mentions that the gov't M-4 fully automatics are called personal defense weapons but citizens semi-autos are called assault weapons. I am sure I have heard this but never did it sick in. I know someone personally that firmly believes that ONLY law enforcement needs firearms. he seems to think that we should have a firearms library, you go and check one out to hunt then return it.

    Bracken speaks to McChrystal and a future role. I had heard the reports that McChrystal had said:
    I did wonder because the General should know the difference between weapons and also he should understand the constitution. I just know when I heard what he was saying, it made me wonder about him.

    PS- I apologize if this clip has already been posted.

    Do you think McChrystal really will become a bad guy? I figured he was spouting that gun control stuff cause he wanted to sell more books.

    Sorry...to me, spouting such crap for personal gain just confirms that one IS a bad guy.

    The problem we are fighting is that people do not know that they have a duty to defend their country from all enemies including those at home. It is a battle of the mind. People in Los Angeles are afraid of the sight of guns. If you were to put your lawful guns in your car and someone saw you do it they would call the police because they would automatically assume that you were going to kill someone. The TV has done its job well.

    To overcome this mental block the people need to see guns everywhere they go. They need to see them in public and kids using them. They need to see them as the useful tools they are. In short the exact opposite of what we have now. Everyone should open carry everywhere. They should glorify all guns and all weapons as the life saving and freedom protecting tools that they are. Anyone in the public eye should carry. Politicians should open carry.

    This will change the public point of view so that people will accept them everywhere. When they are once again beloved by all we can start expanding that mind set to bigger and better weapons. This is how you defeat the man. Buy and support weapons that don't need to be registered. Buy and make 85% AR15s and sell them to everyone you know.

    A lot of people also simply don't care. Protecting your freedom is hard work. Watching TV and shopping for junk is easy.

    Stopped in to our local burger king for my weekly cheese burger and fries, with a 1911 . Sat a couple tables from some local Leo's and several families. No one said anything. Only one person acted like they took much notice. That was the female Leo and I personally think she just had a thing for long gray haired old guy's.
    I know the Leo's noticed! That is their job.. It is common here to see someone open carry.

    I have one local Old Boy that is so afraid of Bears, he is packing whenever his leaves his place for more than 5 Minutes. Even in the middle of winter, when our Bear Friends are taking their LONG SIESTA .... He also thinks that S&W 29 with 4" Barrel, is some sort of Bear Protection.... We all just laugh, and consider the source......

    People here carry while they are working at mcds. Bosses that don't let you carry while working are considered conservative scum.

    ...in fact a guy just walked by the house wearing hunter colors and a rifle... not sure if he shoots anything how he's gonna get it home w/o a car lol.

    He may shoot something, but not track it for hours. Many times, the best thing to do is wait for it to bleed out (locally) not 5 miles away, and on the wrong property. Plenty of time to go get the truck and figure out the closest point to drag it out to. YMMV

    Me personally, I don't like draggin them out of where ever. Drop them where they stand..

    That is preferred, but not always possible. Even with a double lung and heart shot, I have had deer run 100yards, hop a fence, and sink in a river.
