ATTACK ON VETS: $19.5 million tax payer dollars to pay STATES for expanded NICS?


This amendment would add an additional $19.5 million to pay states to turn in more names to the federal gun-ban (NICS) list. The vote was on a Mike Thompson (D-CA) and Peter King (R-NY) amendment to H.R. 4660, the Commerce-Justice-Science funding bill.  Both Representatives hold an “F” rating with Gun Owners of America.

Already, more than 175,000 law-abiding veterans have lost their Second Amendment rights this way.  And, in states like New York, this money will pay to strip Americans of their constitutional rights, merely because they consult a psychiatrist and are prescribed a therapeutic drug.

SO…essentially, we this would discourage people who need mental health help to avoid seeking that treatment, thereby making the people they are afraid of most…even worse!  And if you have ever been prescribed an anti-depressant or therapeutic drug on a list of “psychiatric” medications, you will also be reported to the ever so popular, NICS list.  

HERE’S YOUR LIST OF THE GOOD GUYS……. Go to www.gunowners.org and sign up for these alerts and easy to send emails to your representatives. 

Below are the U.S. House Members who voted NO on the Thompson-King amendment.

A NO vote is the pro-gun position.

POTUS new Taliban HERO! Bergdahl release a travesty. Negotiating with terrorists a national disgrace!


Little does the American public know about the circumstances surrounding the “capture” of Bowie Berghdahl.  Special Forces operators and others involved in this travesty tell us stories of how Berghdahl willingly left in search of Taliban and to possibly even join them. Bottom line is that he purposefully dissented and there were many lives lost looking for him after his delusional “walk about”.  To give him a promotion and hero status is a slap in the face to every serviceman who lost his life in pursuit of him!  You won’t be seeing those facts in the mainstream press, rather they are too busy pushing anything anti Republican to stay on the POTUS agenda. Republicans are actually being painted as somehow wrong for questioning the actions of the POTUS in negotiating the release of 5 hardened Taliban leaders with the blood of American’s on their hands, for this mental case?!  Just another reason to believe the President is more than a “sympathizer” with Islamic leadership around the world. Hell, POTUS is their hero after Saturday after this sneaky deal he made without Intelligence Committee Chairman’s oversight.  How much more does the liberal left need to see in order to convince them they are supporting a walking time bomb waiting for every opportunity to destroy this country and reduce it to a socialist system? The Muslim Brotherhood is now a legitimate political party? Its insanity!   MORE to follow from soldiers who know the real story and are disgusted.

Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter to receive Medal of Honor


South Carolina resident, Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter, the only living military member of Taliban attack will receive the Medal of Honor next month at the White House.

Carpenter threw himself on a grenade while under Taliban attack on a rooftop while on duty in Afghanistan in 2010. His flag came after he was airlifted from that rooftop after being pronounced PEA, or patient expired on arrival, according to a statement he made in a video released detailing a portion of his story.

He was fighting alongside Lance Cpl. Nick Eufrazio, who lived after the attack.

“Friends and Patriots” do protect innocent Federal Employees!


BROWNSVILLE — A federal judge granted a government motion to drop all charges against a special agent with the Office of Inspector General under the Department of Homeland Security based in McAllen, court records show.

U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen earlier this month signed an order to drop, with prejudice, charges of conspiracy to falsify reports and falsifying reports against Marco Rodriguez, 41, of Mission.

“Marco steadfastly maintained his innocence in the face of immense pressure from the federal government,” said Michael Rodriguez, Marco Rodriguez’s attorney. “This dismissal is the first step in returning Marco’s good name, which he made for himself over 16 years of exemplary service as a federal agent.”

Marco Rodriguez’s other lawyer, Darrell L. Fun, praised the ruling.

“It was a long and difficult fight for justice in Marco’s case, but in the end the government did the right thing and justice prevailed,” Fun said.

The agent was charged along with his former supervisor, Eugenio Pedraza, 49, of McAllen, who was in charge of the McAllen office of the DHS-OIG.

Pedraza, who is scheduled for trial in March 2014, has pleaded not guilty to 13 counts of falsifying federal investigation reports in the wake of an internal FBI investigation and a Washington, D.C.-area grand jury indictment. Pedraza was Rodriguez’s supervisor in the McAllen office of the DHS self-investigative wing, and both men were indicted in early April in Brownsville.

The 31-page indictment names seven cases involving U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Border Patrol officials who were suspected of helping drug and human smuggling operations working ports of entry in Brownsville and Pharr.

The Justice Department alleges the scheme was meant to hide Pedraza’s failure to ensure investigations were conducted thoroughly and properly.

Michael Rodriguez said since the charges against his client were dropped with prejudice, federal prosecutors cannot re-file them.

“A dismissal with prejudice prevents federal prosecutors from re-filing the same charges and is a complete and total vindication of Rodriguez,” Michael Rodriguez said.

Jill, Kris Ford and Stephanie Hayden on our first SCUBA dive ever! Thank you DIVE CARE!

What a week!

Just got back from a week of fun in the sun, shooting big girl toys and getting Scuba certified with Stephanie Hayden and Kris Ford of Red Jacket Firearms.  We started off at the Shooting with SOF event where a good time was had by all who enjoy shooting the latest/greatest military and LEO firearms….  Always followed by a great party!  The next day we started our Scuba certification training with Dive Care and A.O. in St. Pete….  Always followed by a good party!  Proceeded to drink lots of water and get rest for two full days of diving.  First open water was in a beautiful crystal clear freshwater river.  Second day was Gulf of Mexico, down to approx. 50 ft where we got to have fun spearfishing and diving among Goliath Grouper and Hog fish, among others.  Then….followed by a great party!

Made my way to the BAD MONKEY in Ybor for a great night at Gen. Scott’s fine drinking establishment and managed to get to SOFIC for the last two days.   It’s always fun to watch this trade show bring together so many warriors.  Fondly reminding me of a reunion in progress.  Got to hang and do business with some of the best of the best of the best in the business.  Looking forward to bringing you more pictures and information on upcoming sponsor opportunities with great media REACH.   Ciao for now!

Lone Congressman Takes Action on Military’s Suicide Prevention Failures


We must support the Congressmen and women who are doing the right thing for our veterans. Usually, they are also doing the right thing for the country!

the military suicide report

MILITARY SUICIDE: War’s Invisible Casualty

by Rep. André Carson, Congressman from Indiana
Politico, April 8, 2013

Three hundred forty-nine members of the United States military committed suicide in 2012 — a total higher than the number of combat casualties in Afghanistan during that same period.

This 15 percent increase over the year prior points to a dangerous national epidemic and a failure to address the invisible wounds of war inflicted on members of the proudest military force in the world.

Congress has an immediate role to play and an undeniable responsibility to confront these challenges head-on. That is why this week I am introducing two pieces of legislation that seek to stave off further increases in military suicide and ensure we are addressing the prevalence by which American heroes are taking their own lives.

For too long, we have failed to see our own duplicity in how we deal…
