I didn’t know this stuff, but I want to know

Here’s another link for which there is some interesting info:  Posted at 9:14 am on October 21, 2016 by Bob Owens of Bearing Arms.

“The Australian government has begrudging and indirectly admitted the failure of their strict gun control laws, which included a gun buyback scheme that has been ignored by hundreds of thousands of citizens. . . . . “

HIDING IN FULL VIEW by Gnoshia

A friend sent this message to a person that asked a pointed question in response to a posting that they might be terminated on Facebook for not furnishing an ID to verify who they were and where they could be found with links. Their account was an alias nickname, and the post contained no trace of an opinion on the situation. If this person had bothered to look they might have found that the person was on the internet as themselves in many places already. I can only assume they were not internet savvy enough to do a simple search.

The question was:   “WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?”

SO THEY SAID IN REPLEY:
Anyone that knows anything about the internet would have no problem finding out who I am. I have been on the internet for over ten years.  My personal information is surely on there somewhere, how could you hide that?  So basically nothing is really hidden at all. Anyone that ever bought anything from me knows who I am AND my address and email address.  (NOTE: I furnish that as a matter of course) The government knows who I am.  They have my social security number. Here’s my email address: (NOTE EMAIL OMITTED, but they did actually furnish it)

But I have a definite problem with some private organization having my personal information on their computer to UN-securely lose or post without my permission. I do not post my name or address on the internet, nor do I put my picture on the internet.  If you have seen the number of hackers and criminals and people from foreign countries that prey on defenceless people then you understand.  I am not defenceless, but I do not wish to make things easy for any underhanded people to come to my home and upset my life, online or in real life.  It’s one thing to voluntarily give someone your personal information. But to just had it willy nilly to every stranger that shows up on the internet is not something I wish to do.

So, if you want to know what motivated me in the first place to do as I do, then that is the answer.  I am not HIDING from anyone. I am in fact not really hidden at all.  I am avoiding needless complications. Now, if I had the money to pay a security company to protect me then I could afford a whole lot of other things, including putting all my personal information online. Including inviting every tom, dick and harry to come visit me on my front porch. I don’t wish to offend anyone, but if you buy something from me you’ll know my entire name and address. And you might find that I’m a (age omitted) year old grandmother just trying to sell my possessions.  And, I might add, all my posessions are in my home. Ask me why I don’t just invite everyone in the world to come over and have a party.

(NOTE THIS IS THE PART THEY HAD NOT WRITTEN YET, BUT ADDED LATER FOR THIS ARTICLE)

AND I have had ample experience with these additional categories:

Having my “alias” and that corresponding email being used to take out accounts in that name and getting emails in that inbox informing me that I have to verify that account.

Or getting bills to my alias for which there naturally is no way to pay for them.

Or getting emails of the same ilk to my website which bill me for things I never charged or bought.

Or having my alias used to get traffic to some Russian or French, or German website by hijacking it into their own website code.

Or having my graphics that I designed myself, and for which I own the legal copyright hijacked to another website by having them linked to directly and fed from my website.

Directly linking for your information costs me money that I do not have.

AND I will add that I have lived where a business was located next door to a residence, and seen people knock on the door at 2am to get a part, climb a privacy fence to get attention for what they wanted repeatedly.  So I know well how a business or anything else can be used to invade someones privacy null and void. Imagine your children in the backyard behind a privacy fence and some YAY-HOO pops his head up over the fence to ask for a part, and on a weekend no less when the closed signs are evident on the business door.

Just remember, if that had not been an alias, if it had been my real name and address, I might be in the hole for something for which I never did in the first place.  I might owe money when I never bought anything.  And I might easily have been one of those statistics of people that have had their identity stolen and their lives ruined.

When all those emails go to an alias account I can for sure identify where and what.  I can pinpoint that it was not directed at me personally.

Any other way would be extremely stupid.  And if anyone thinks you can deterr or fight criminals by acting like a nice wind blows through your brain person that’s open about every single thing they are and own, then you are delusional. Or a criminal trying to make others think you a righteous sounding person.

Your question was “WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?” I say that you are first stating that I am hiding.  You are making assumptions based on whatever you like.  You are the one that is saying that I’m HIDING.  You don’t know me well enough to assume I’m anything at all.  I might be a 9 year old amusing myself with old farts. I might be anything at all, but you make an assumption.  In fact, you make a statement about a person you know nothing about. And I say I’m not hiding me or anything from the people that like and care about me.  And for sure I’m not hiding anything that can reasonably already be found on the internet or from a database. But the focus is now on this imaginary person that is “HIDING”.

Why do you want to know the answer to that question?
Is it because you care about and like me?
Is it because you are intrigued and wish to know me better?
Is it because you are suspicious?
Is it because you are on a crusade?
Is it because you are spiteful?
Is it because you are a stalker?
Is it because you have time on your hands and nothing else to do with it?
Is it because you’re from the government?
Who are you?
Where do YOU live?
What’s your phone number?
What is YOUR email?

WHAT ARE YOU HIDING?

I have always felt that someone that points a direct question like that at someone elses private life without knowing them or meeting them makes me think that you have a lot more to hide than I might.

This isn’t communist country.
I don’t have to verify everything I am or who I am
to every stranger that requests it.

So check your own closet.

ASSAULT “TYPE” WEAPON

CHECK THE FACTS

ASSAULT “TYPE” WEAPON
I have been seeing this phrase “Assault Type Weapon” in the news almost every time a criminal or nut case shoots someone.  They always describe the firearm that was used in the shooting as a weapon that is “Assault TYPE”

From Fox news today:

“Banks said the suspected shooter – who was armed with an “assault-type rifle” and a handgun — also was dead inside the club . . . ”

“It appears he was organized and well-prepared,” the chief said, adding that the shooter had an assault-type weapon, a handgun and “some type of (other) device on him.”

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/06/12/police-say-around-20-killed-in-shooting-at-orlando-nightclub-more-than-40-taken-to-local-hospitals.html

This is a term that has not yet been explained in any way that makes sense.  First, an Assault Weapon is any weapon that is used to ASSAULT someone.  And among the things that have been used to attack people and kill them are:

Screwdrivers
Knives
Nail guns
Basball bats
Ice picks
Pistols
Rifles
Bombs
Hammers
Cleavers
Fists
Glass shards
Metal rods
Acid
Boiling water etc . . . etc . . . so on, so forth

And these people that are insisting that there are assault type weapons are not being specific. In fact, in reality, anything that can be used to attack someone is an assault weapon.  And therefore should be phrased as THE WEAPON USED TO ASSAULT, not an assault TYPE.

WHAT IS AN ASSAULT TYPE WEAPON?

This overlooked fact will be lost on the public, who assume that an assault type weapon just looks like whatever your imagination cooks up.  I am guessing, that they are referring to a rifle that appears to be in the style of an weapon only legally used by those in the military, among others.  In other words it “looks like” a type of weapon.

I’m assuming they are referring to fully automatic firearms, which are, and have been illegal for someone without a special license to actually own.

These firearms will shoot multiple rounds of ammunition, one after the other, with one trigger pull held down.  They are legal for our military to carry and use, and only people who go through an extensive process can become licensed to own one.  I am assuming this is what an “assault type weapon is”  in the minds of those that use this phrase.

The point is, you, as a regular person in the United States cannot just run out to the store and buy one.  You as a regular citizen cannot just go get a machine gun to use.

A style is not a category of function.  There are many weapons made to appear to be scary looking, but only shoot one bullet at a time, and many of them little bitty .22 shots.  They appear to be like an assault weapon, and YES they can be used to assault someone.  But a knife is an assault weapon, and appears to be just exactly what it is.  You can chop veggies with it, or you can kill an intruder or not with it.  The function is what you actually  use it for.  The description is that it is a knife.  The style is what it looks like:

Actually I was wrong there.  It’s nothing but a knife until you stab someone with it.  After you stab them, it then is an assault weapon.  But not an assault “type” weapon.

No, wrong again.  It’s the weapon used to assault them with.  Oh my, I’m getting confused.  It’s all sooooooo confusing.  Which is the point, I think.

Do you see what is being done here with the English language?  It’s an important distinction that is being used to create a whole new category of scary weapons for the public.  And it also makes perfectly legal to own weapons, the ones that are not fully automatic weapons so scary that they can move to ban having them.

They don’t ban nail guns.  And a nail gun can be used to shoot someone with.  OR NOT. It can also be used to nail things together. I hesitate to mention it because now some criminal is going to be going to Lowes or Home Depot to get one.  Heck, a saw blade can kill someone, albiet very slowly.  Sheesh.  Why don’t they gather up all those phsychos?

People who are American citizens go through a legal background check to be able just to carry a pistol.

People who are American citizens are fingerprinted, background checked, and VERIFIED as to whether they are a felon or a wife beater or a murderer, OR a phycho.

And lastly, People who are American citizens also are required to take a training course which doesn’t JUST teach how to safely shoot a firearm, but teaches when, where, and what you are not supposed to shoot and in what situation this is permissable.  The courses for just THAT part take hours to complete, and you have to pass a test after this and if you fail this test you do not get a carry permit.  You are supposed to be prosecuted for illegally applying or somthing like that.  Don’t hold me to this statement, I’m not sure about the specifics on being prosecuted for that.  Anyway, you should be.

So before you ignore this term that the media is using, the term “Assault Type Weapon”, think about this.

That regular rifle that someone got for Christmas one year to go target shooting with is being defamed with a crap phrase made up by people wanting to have all guns confiscated.

It is also being put on a list for weapons that need to be banned by those people in power in Washington and elsewhere that are pushing for abolishing our Constitution the way it is worded.  Common hunting and common target shooting rifles are being put on this list.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/4269/text?q={%22search%22%3A[%22\%22hr4269\%22%22]}&resultIndex=1

And it’s also pretty darned obvious to me that “Assault Type Weapon” is not the only “catch phrase” that the corrupt media outlets are using nowdays and for quite some time.

Pay attention to the way people say things.  Don’t assume they say what is true.
I heard somone on PBS one time refer to a not automatic weapon as an automatic weapon when it was NOT an automatic weapon.  They acted as if they didn’t even understand the function of one or the other.

It’s important as hell what come out of their mouths.  So, if it’s fair for people like that to lie about the truth, then it’s fair to TELL the truth in response.

And that is the meaning of THAT.
