HERE’S HOW AN ARMED, HERO DOCTOR WAS HONORED FOR SAVING LIVES IN A HOSPITAL

 

By Doug Book,  editor

 On July 24th, Dr. Lee Silverman, a Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital Psychiatrist from Darby, Pennsylvania saved the lives of uncounted hospital workers and patients by shooting Richard Plotts, a mentally disturbed patient and felon.  While in Silverman’s office, Plotts pulled a hidden gun and killed Theresa Hunt, a 53 year old hospital caseworker who had accompanied Plotts to Dr. Silverman’s office.  Upon the shot being fired by Plotts, Silverman ducked behind his desk, pulled a pistol he keeps in a drawer and returned fire, hitting Plotts three times and ending the criminal’s would-be killing spree. Plotts was in critical condition and undergoing surgery on Thursday night.

 “Without a doubt, I believe the doctor saved lives,” said Donald Molineux , Chief of the Yeadon Police Dept.

 “Without that firearm, this guy (the patient) could have went out in the hallway and just walked down the offices until he ran out of ammunition.”

 So Dr. Silverman is a HERO, right? Well, maybe not so much. This is how Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital officials responded to the incident:

 “It was not clear why Silverman, a doctor for nearly 25 years, was armed at the office. Bernice Ho, a spokeswoman for Mercy Fitzgerald, said Thursday it was against hospital policy for anyone other than security guards to carry weapons.”

 ”We are grateful for the efforts of the emergency responders, and we are working with the Delaware County police departments to understand fully the details of the event and to do all we can to assist those affected,” hospital officials said in a statement.   

 Not one mention or word of thanks for Dr. Silverman, except, of course, to wonder why he had a gun stowed in his desk! By the time the “Emergency Responders”–to whom hospital officials were so grateful—arrived on the scene, Plotts could have killed an additional 5, 6, 8 people? Who knows!

 Instead, according to hospital witnesses, “Guys with helmets and automatic weapons kept jumping out of their cars;” “They came in with guns drawn…”

 But it was all over. The SWAT teams no doubt scared the Hell out of everyone on the scene, but accomplished nothing else.

 It will be interesting to see how Mercy Fitzgerald handles the episode. Will they dismiss a hero who saved God knows how many lives because he refused to follow the “gun free zone” policy of his place of work?

Colorado Governor Hickenlooper looks at November defeat thanks to lying about anti-gun ways

By Doug Book, editor

Anyone wishing to explore the workings of the hoplophobic mind needs only consider the actions of the 2013, Colorado legislature. First time violators of the state’s new gun legislation face up to one year in prison. Yet a real life criminal who commits a felony while in violation of the law is subject to only 18 months.  This makes an armed robber just 33% more worthy of punishment than the law abiding citizen who also happens to own a 20 round magazine. Disgraceful.

Yet Colorado politicos couldn’t have been happier with their knee-jerk attempts to intimidate Centennial State gun owners after the 2012 killings in Newtown, Connecticut. Included in the 2013 gun control legislation signed into law by Democrat Governor John Hickenlooper were requirements for universal background checks, new demands for mental health reporting and prohibitions against “large capacity” magazines—that is, of over 15 round capacity.  (1)

Though it’s been a year since the law went into effect, Gov. Hickenlooper has spent the last few months running from his signature on it, not wanting to join 2 Democrats recalled from office and another forced to retire as a result of their own anti-gun ways. Last month, at an Aspen forum, Hickenlooper told sheriffs’ representatives that he had no idea that the overwhelming majority of their peers were so strongly opposed to the then, proposed legislation. It was news to Hickenlooper that these same representatives wanted to meet with him prior to his signing the legislation into law.  (2)

He also had “no idea” that the overwhelming majority of the state’s sheriffs had publically vowed to NOT enforce the terms of the legislation. As Colorado’s, Milwaukee county sheriff David Clark Jr. put it to FOX News host Jeanine Pirro: “I wouldn’t enforce those laws because I don’t want to get shot, because the American people are going to put up with so much before they’re going to push back.” (3)

Hickenlooper also claimed that rumors of conversations between himself and anti-gun loon Michael Bloomberg just prior to the legislation becoming law were simply not true. However, records of 2 calls to Hickenlooper from Bloomberg were discovered after the filing of an open records request.

Besieged with questions, the governor finally “…admitted his office did not research the gun legislation until after it was passed. Governor Hickenlooper said he didn’t realize it was going to cause such controversy and had he known he would not have endorsed the new gun laws without more research.” (4)

Apparently the governor MISSED those endless days of autos circling the state capitol with horns blaring as the people of Colorado registered supreme displeasure with the gun-grabbing intentions of their liberal legislators. The assault against and reaction by gun owners had been THE television news story for months. But it was all news to Hick.

And now, as a result of apparently having spent the past year under a rock, Hickenlooper faces the political fight of his life as a Rasmussen poll shows Republican candidate Bob Beauprez in a 44%-44% tie with the absent minded governor. It took Beauprez just one week to catch Hickenlooper after winning the nomination from a crowded field of GOP contenders. (5)

Keep the lies coming, governor. Maybe you’ll take a few more Democrat legislators down with you.

Is this our last Independence Day?

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

We tried. We really did try as hard as we could. Over the past 238 years we have poured out the lives of generations of our young men and women to defend our liberties. We have willingly sacrificed our treasure and our tears fighting to keep the wolves of tranny away from our door.  But unless we change course now we will die on the battlefield of Good versus Evil. Today we find ourselves looking more like the patriots who were overwhelmed at The Alamo and crushed at Corregidor, than the brave signers of our Declaration of Independence. Try as we have, unless something changes, it’s all over. If our quisling politicians erase our borders and let those who have coveted our lifestyle for generations continue to flood our streets and voting booths, we’re finished as ”The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” 

If we don’t stop our megalomaniac president from continuing his unilateral amnesty America will soon cease to exist.  Those who actively or passively help Barack Obama grant his own amnesty, people like Ryan and Rubio, McCain and Schumer; Menendez and Pelosi and dozens and dozens more will go down in history with Benedict Arnold and the Walker family as the worst traitors and in our history.

If they let Obama stab us in the back with his amnesty attack,  America will be nothing more than a collection of boastful fools who thought they were better than the Romans and so many other long gone  empires.  The irony is that with full knowledge of the mistakes those past civilizations made, we will have repeated them anyway.  

Our Obituary will read, “America, by suicide in her 239th year.” Today instead of looking forward to a bigger and better America, we are content to sit and watch our precious freedoms be taken away one by one until now there are virtually none left. We don’t have freedom of the press. We don’t have freedom of religion we don’t have freedom from unwarranted searches. Our media is gone; our politicians have become quislings and our prospects for once again living as a free people are very dim. The Democrats have replaced King George with King Barack.

Enjoy this Independence Day my friends and please don’t call today “4th of July” like an Anglicized version of Cinco de Mayo; because if Boehner and company let Obama stab us in the back this will be our last relatively free Independence Day.

The NRA stood tall and tough when it counted most

By Doug Book, editor

Though liberal Democrats have little appreciation for the spiritual meaning of Christmas, events of December 2012 would bring Joy to the Political World of every avid, gun-hating politician in Washington D.C.

For on December 14th, twenty children and six adults responsible for their care were shot to death at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Their killer ended his own life minutes later with a round to the head.

Understanding the importance of disarming the American people, gun confiscation advocates like Chuck Schumer, Diane Feinstein and Barack Obama no doubt wished the death toll had been higher. But as children were involved, even 20 dead would have the American public ready to accept—however unwillingly– a raft of new, anti-gun edicts. Democrats and the national media would see to that. For neither the NRA nor pro-gun Republicans would have the gall to stand in the way by quoting chapter and verse of the 2nd Amendment. Not this time.  After all, never had the left been blessed with such a delicious level of exploitable carnage! It would be a legislative gimme!

Then, four days after the killings, the NRA offered its eagerly anticipated response to the left’s set-up story of evil “assault weapons” and the ease with which they can be acquired. But refusing to be cowed by liberal Democrats or their equally anti-gun proponents in the national media, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre told the American public that “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” The next psychopath intent upon taking advantage of the defenseless victims of “gun free zones” will only be stopped by the armed response of good people, not a new layer of ineffective legislation.

The media was stunned. Liberal Democrats were taken aback, feigning disgust at the brazen, unfeeling nature of LaPierre’s remarks. Of course the unexpressed media/Dem Party response was really one of: “Damn, what happened!” This collection of dedicated gun grabbers had expected a contrite, almost apologetic NRA. They would relish the unconditional surrender of an NRA which had for some years displayed a less confrontational side; one which earned the contempt of members across the country. The NRA had endorsed Harry Reid for God’s sake!

But far from apologizing for a history of oft times rigid, pro-gun positions, LaPierre hit the left right between the eyes. And guess what! The American people–gun owners and non-owners alike–stood 4-Square with the NRA. DC Democrats were apoplectic. All of their plans of gloating over the defeated carcass of the once feared gun group went up in smoke. Visions of mandatory gun registration, confiscation of “assault weapons” and “high capacity” magazines, SWAT teams intimidating American citizens with midnight raids and the ultimate manufacture of subjects from what had once been free citizens—it had all gone to Hell. The NRA had picked the right time to be tough. It had defined the problem of gun free zones and offered the only solution for the defense of unarmed innocents.

There is no question that NRA higher-ups have sometimes displayed weakness, stupidity, even lunacy. How can the premier American gun-rights organization endorse Harry Reid?

But one very courageous statement offered at exactly the right time did more to derail a dangerous, liberal assault against gun owners than the combined efforts of DC Republicans for the past decade. As gun owners, we owe the NRA a lot.

Correcting media lies and half-truths: Las Vegas killers were bottom feeding “occupiers”

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

The media has been caught lying about a gun violence episode once again. Last week’s terrible murder of an innocent man in a Walmart was turned into another dishonest attempt to strip guns from honest law abiding citizens.  

What we know to be true in this story is that two miserable pieces of human debris, Amanda and Jerad Miller entered a Walmart in Las Vegas intent upon committing murder.  Seeing that both of them were armed, an honest citizen who had a legal right to carry a gun confronted them and was shot and murdered by Amanda Miller.   

As is the case whenever a sensational gun related crime occurs, the dishonest media worked overtime to portray the shooters as somehow connected to any Right wing group they could. This case was no different. The two murderers were quickly painted as Tea party supporters and Right-wing extremists.  

The truth about these two swine is that not only were they not connected to any Right wing group, they were in fact “Occupy” movement people, and avowed enemies of our way of life.  The Millers were present at the Bundy Ranch showdown, but only because they were violent anarchists who loved death and were likely hoping to see some death during the standoff.   

Again, contrary to the media’s prepackaged “fill in the date and a few other details” narrative, the Millers were detected and ejected at the Bundy Ranch. They were not accepted and treated as comrades in arms.

The lesson in this case is always the same. The media are not on the side of average Americans. In fact they hate us and would rather spend a month in prison than an hour with the “rubes and yahoos” they think we are. It is precisely because of this that we must never stop correcting their lies.

The Millers were being readied by the Leftist media to be THE shooting that finally stripped us of our guns – every shooting always is.  When stories like this appear each of us must become our own free press. Learn the truth and speak the truth. Don’t assume someone else will do it for us.

Virtually every day the media works to take away our freedoms with lies. In response we have two choices: help them with our silence or fight them with our voices.

Keep asking questions and keep demanding answers. It’s the only way we will ever get the truth.
