Watch the star-studded PSA for "Demand a Plan" in response to the
Newtown shooting.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2971246/posts

Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow and Beyoncé Knowles are among
celebrities campaigning for gun regulation in the wake of the massacre
at Sandy Hook Elementary.

The stars feature in a new public service announcement against gun
violence for Demand a Plan after 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and
killed 20 children and six adults before turning the gun on himself at
the Connecticut school last Friday. The one-and-a-half minute clip
features the celebrity activists asking: 'How many more colleges? How
many more classrooms? How many more movie theatres? How many more
houses of faith?' before lawmakers tighten regulations.

A cast of artists and entertainers, including Michelle Williams, Reese
Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Ellen DeGeneres, Julianne
Moore, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx, Olivia Munn, Selena Gomez, Paul Rudd,
Jon Hamm, Jennifer Westfeldt, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman, Amy
Poehler, Adam Scott, Rashida Jones, John Slattery, Jeremy Renner,
Conan O’Brien, and others, have feature in the PSA released Friday on
DemandaPlan.org.

The effort, a campaign from Mayors Against Illegal Guns, comes a week
after the horrific massacre in Newtown and amid polarising debate
rippling through the U.S. about gun violence and the Second Amendment.

All the parasite celebs bitching about guns? Turn in your guns and fire

More like point out their hypocrisy.

The hypocrisy of this PSA spot that's currently running on TV (on topic)
is amazing. These are people who live behind high walls in secure
compounds with armed security on 24-hour patrol. They have others
protect them with guns while using that as technicality to profess that
they themselves don't own or need them and therefore neither should
anyone else.

Just like heater-hater Feinstein and her crusade against guns. She's the
biggest hypocrite on the planet when it comes to this issue, because she
herself has a CCW permit and admittedly carries a handgun for
self-defense-- all the while doing everything she can to strip everyone
else of the right to do the same. And she doesn't even need one, because
as a member of Congress, if anyone threatens her, she's entitled to
Capitol Police protection.

"To me, to me, but not for thee." Pretty much the unstated mantra of the
gun-grabbing leadership.

First day on the planet?

You're sound asleep when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door.

Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with fear, you hear muffled whispers.

At least two people have broken into your house and are moving your
way.

With your heart pumping, you reach down beside your bed and pick up
your
shotgun.

You rack a shell into the chamber, then inch toward the door and open
it.

In the darkness, you make out two shadows.

One holds something that looks like a crowbar.

When the intruder brandishes it as if to strike, you raise the shotgun
and fire.

The blast knocks both thugs to the floor.

One writhes and screams while the second man crawls to the front door
and lurches outside.

As you pick up the telephone to call police, you know you're in
trouble.

In your country, most guns were outlawed years before, and the few
that
are privately owned are so stringently regulated as to make them
useless..

Yours was never registered.

Police arrive and inform you that the second burglar has died.

They arrest you for First Degree Murder and Illegal Possession of a
Firearm.

When you talk to your attorney, he tells you not to worry: authorities
will probably plea the case down to manslaughter.

"What kind of sentence will I get?" you ask.

"Only ten-to-twelve years," he replies, as if that's nothing.

"Behave yourself, and you'll be out in seven."

The next day, the shooting is the lead story in the local newspaper.
Somehow, you're portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the two men
you shot are represented as choirboys.

Their friends and relatives can't find an unkind word to say about
them..

Buried deep down in the article, authorities acknowledge that both
"victims" have been arrested numerous times.

But the next day's headline says it all: "Lovable Rogue Son Didn't
Deserve to Die."

The thieves have been transformed from career criminals into Robin
Hood-type pranksters..

As the days wear on, the story takes wings.

The national media picks it up, then the international media.

The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.

Your attorney says the thief is preparing to sue you, and he'll
probably
win.

The media publishes reports that your home has been burglarized
several
times in the past and that you've been critical of local police for
their lack of effort in apprehending the suspects.

After the last break-in, you told your neighbor that you would be
prepared next time.

The District Attorney uses this to allege that you were lying in wait
for the burglars.

A few months later, you go to trial.

The charges haven't been reduced, as your lawyer had so confidently
predicted.

When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of it all works
against you..

Prosecutors paint a picture of you as a mean, vengeful man.

It doesn't take long for the jury to convict you of all charges.

The judge sentences you to life in prison.

This case really happened.

On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk , England , killed
one burglar and wounded a second.

In April, 2000, he was convicted and is now serving a life term...

How did it become a crime to defend one's own life in the once great
British Empire ?

It started with the Pistols Act of 1903.

This seemingly reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors or
felons and established that handgun sales were to be made only to
those
who had a license.


The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to include not only
handguns
but all firearms except shotguns..

Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying of any weapon
by private citizens and mandated the registration of all shotguns.

Momentum for total handgun confiscation began in earnest after the
Hungerfordmass shooting in 1987.

Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a Kalashnikov rifle,
walked
down the streets shooting everyone he saw.

When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

The British public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of "gun
control", demanded even tougher restrictions.


(The seizure of all privately owned handguns was the objective even
though Ryan used a rifle.)

Nine years later, at Dunblane , Scotland , Thomas Hamilton used a
semi-automatic weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a public
school.

For many years, the media had portrayed all gun owners as mentally
unstable, or worse, criminals.

Now the press had a real kook with which to beat up law-abiding gun
owners.

Day after day, week after week, the media gave up all pretense of
objectivity and demanded a total ban on all handguns.

The Dunblane Inquiry, a few months later, sealed the fate of the few
sidearms still owned by private citizens.

During the years in which the British government incrementally took
away
most gun rights, the notion that a citizen had the right to armed
self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.

Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to people who were
threatened,
claiming that self-defense was no longer considered a reason to own a
gun.

Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were charged while
the
real criminals were released.

Indeed, after the Martin shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as
saying, "We cannot have people take the law into their own hands."

All of Martin's neighbors had been robbed numerous times, and several
elderly people were severely injured in beatings by young thugs who
had
no fear of the consequences.

Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of his
collection
trashed or stolen by burglars.

When the Dunblane Inquiry ended, citizens who owned handguns were
given
three months to turn them over to local authorities.

Being good British subjects, most people obeyed the law.

The few who didn't were visited by police and threatened with ten-year
prison sentences if they didn't comply.

Police later bragged that they'd taken nearly 200,000 handguns from
private citizens.

How did the authorities know who had handguns?

The guns had been registered and licensed.

Kind of like cars. Sound familiar?

WAKE UP AMERICA; THIS IS WHY OUR FOUNDING FATHERS PUT THE SECOND
AMENDMENT IN OUR CONSTITUTION.

"...It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate,
tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.."
--Samuel Adams

If you think this is important, please forward to everyone you know.

You had better wake up, because Obama is doing this very same thing,
over here, if he can get it done.

The UN Small Arms Treaty that Hilary is negotiating would take away
our
2nd Amendment rights.

And there are stupid people in congress and on the street that will go
right along with him.

You mean, I should have spotted that you're crazy a long time ago?

What can I say, I'm a charitable sort: I presume people are sane
until they prove otherwise like you did.
