                                         The Winds of Change By Chris Avena   Our forefathers had the vision to see far into the future to our present day America. They bestowed upon us the basic rights and freedoms as a strong foundation that our great country was built on. In present day America, it seems that our Constitutional Rights that were handed down to us over two hundred years ago are under threat of change.   In today’s America, it is politically incorrect to speak your mind in fear of offending someone. It has become a place were “Big Government” is slowly taking away our rights and freedoms that thousands of Americans fought and died to protect. The word Patriot is defined as one who loves, supports and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion. We had the pleasure of speaking to Ted Nugent. Agree or disagree with his words or beliefs, but like it or not – Ted is here to fight for your rights because he is “A Patriot”.   SeeMeHunt - Do you feel that it is detrimental that the American Media allows commentators who are non- U.S Citizens to voice a strong opinion against our Constitutional Rights – thus, Influencing the American public to believe that our Constitutional Rights are in dire need of ratification?   Ted Nugent -Ya think! With the American and global media hellbent on an America hating, freedom hating, gun hating rampage, such consistency of hate for our sacred Constitution and overall American dream of individualism and individual rights and freedoms is brainwashing an ever increasing gaggle of ignorant and weak people to fall for the Saul Alinsky/Barak Obama scam of big government socialism. That is why that same media and government goons attack me and hate me. I wear it as a badge of honor standing up for we the people principles. It is that simple.   SeeMeHunt -The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp (FDIC) had listed firearm and ammunition sellers as “High Risk”. Since then, the Obama Administration has applied pressure to banking and lending institutions such as Bank of America, GE Capital and TD Bank to cut ties to gun stores and freeze assets to firearm related business. How detrimental can it be when the government can dictate to our financial institutions who they can do business with?   Ted Nugent- Tyrants, dictators, emperors, despots and gangbangers have always tripped over themselves throughout history to disarm free citizens and in every instance, it has turned out catastrophic for every society. The history of the world is rife with irrefutable evidence that the Obama government is maniacal in their "fundamental transformation" of the greatest quality of life in the history of mankind, and we the people damn well better wake up and fulfill our we the people responsibilities to pressure and direct our government employees what we expect of them. Anyone who seeks to force free people into unarmed helplessness is evil personified. Case closed.   SeeMeHunt -The New York Safe Act is the most aggressive and controversial piece of legislation on gun control to date. What is it that makes the Safe Act more about Gun Confiscation than Gun Control?   Ted Nugent - Only evil, rotten, dangerous people would claim that "shall not be infringed" means something other than the unambiguous statement it is. All laws infringing on law abiding Americans are criminal as are the creators and enforcers of such criminal laws. S   SeeMeHunt -Chicago’s Mayor Rahm Emanuel has lobbied hard to outlaw gun stores in the city of Chicago. As of now you will not find a gun stores in 99.5 percent of the city. The few stores that still remain will require a video record of all gun sales. How is this not a direct violation of our Constitutional Rights?    Ted Nugent- Rahm Emanuel is a direct violation of the US Constitution and all things holy in America. If there were truly justice in America, Rahm Emanuel, the president and his gun running attorney general Eric Holder along with Hillary Clinton and the whole America hating gang would all be arrested, tried, convicted and jailed for their clear and present danger to America. Period.   We are at a critical tipping point in our countries history. Our rights and freedmons are under attack. It is our obligation to question our elected officials and fight for what is rightfully ours before it is too late.

        To: ALL MEDIAFor immediate release January 15, 2014 For more information contact: Bill Brassard Jr.203-426-1320 New York Benefits from Spending by Target Shooters   Read the Report View/Download as PDF   View INFOGRAPHIC LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The National Shooting Sports Foundation has released a major new report about the importance of target shooting activities to the economies of New York and the nation. NSSF is the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry. The report, Target Shooting in America: Millions of Shooters, Billions of Dollars, was released today in conjunction with a press conference at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show), the largest trade show of its kind in the world and a showcase for the firearms and ammunition industry. The report provides a first-ever look at U.S. target shooting-related expenditures. Also included are state-by-state statistics for the number of target shooters, retail sales, taxes and jobs. The target-shooting report complements the Hunting in America report released by NSSF and the Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies in March 2013. In New York, target shooting-related spending contributed $817,050,105 to the state's economy and supported 6,333 jobs. Nationally, the money target shooters spent in 2011 resulted in $23 billion being added to the nation's economy and supported more than 185,000 jobs. "More people target shooting is good news for the industry, and it is equally good news for America’s economy," said NSSF President and CEO Steve Sanetti. Retail sales related to target shooting account for nearly $10 billion, with rifle and handgun shooting being the leading contributors, followed by shotgun and muzzleloader shooting. California and Texas are the top two states ranked by retail sales. Combining data from Target Shooting in America and Hunting in America shows that target shooters and hunters together poured more than $110 billion into the nation’s economy, fueling more than 866,000 jobs. “Communities and businesses of all sizes benefit from these activities,” said Sanetti. Target shooters ($8.2 billion) and hunters ($8.4 billion) spend nearly equal amounts on equipment common to both pursuits, such as firearms, ammunition and accessories. Hunters spend more overall than target shooters when factors such as fuel, food, lodging and transportation are included. “The Target Shooting in America and Hunting in America reports give us a more complete understanding of the economic importance of the shooting sports to America,” said Sanetti. “We’ve long known about the recreational benefits of these activities, and now we know how much they contribute to our country’s financial well-being.” Read Target Shooting in America: Millions of Shooters, Billions of Dollars or view the report as a printable PDF. -30- About NSSFThe National Shooting Sports Foundation is the trade association for the firearms industry. Its mission is to promote, protect and preserve hunting and the shooting sports.
