"If anybody comes into my home and tries to hurt my kids, I've no problem shooting them." That's Angelina Jolie, revealing her up-with-the-Second-Amendment maternal instincts to Britain's Mail on Sunday.

Just when my wife finally decides she can see the Brad Pitt and Angelina flicks WITHOUT me, I may have to rethink.. However, it would be nice if Angelina would demand that her movies and Brads are not shown at a LHM facility here in UT?

I agree with her, but I don't see the Brits doing the same. Check out this video, the whole thing is good, but what I am talking about starts at about the 4 minute frame:

Holy Cow.. he says he got a "raw deal" I'd need editors for what I'd want to say and I don't use those words.
Dave, thanks for posting this link, I now wonder if the movie folks are in danger of felony charges for not turning over their guns that they admit they own and have ? Admitting being my choice of word.
Just when I think I am making a stand for what I believe in to be right, something like this comes along to slap me and make me think I can never do enough!! Glad for the help and strength of folks that are here.

It's worth keeping in mind that the NRA spun this story pretty hard. I read the whole story and while he did get a raw deal, it's not as one-sided as it appears.

Working against Tony Martin was the fact that he shot both of the burglars while they were fleeing. The kid that died was shot in the back. Martin then fled and hid the gun. It also appears that Martin is a little unstable and paranoid, but I'm not sure if that's for real or if it's just the argument his defense attorney used to lighten his sentence.

I don't think he should have been convicted of murder, but shooting someone who is running away is wrong, and I probably wouldn't argue against a manslaughter charge.

None of that quibbling changes the bottom line, which is that the UK is a mess, and UK citizens really screwed up by allowing themselves to be disarmed.

My apologies in advance to any NRA members, but I hate that organization. It just chafes me that they parade around like they are protecting our rights and then when you actually sit down at look at the legislation they work on, you just feel violated.

That is why I joined Gun Owners of America. :fudd:

Gun Owners of America and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO) are much better than the Negotiate your Rights Away (NRA), IMO.

I joined the NRA and became a life member for a reason. The NRA is not quite perfect. They've made some mistakes, but amongst the notable mistakes they've made, they've done a whole lot of good too. They are the big dog on the block. I've never heard the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Chuckie Schumer, Hillary Clinton, Teddy (hic) Kennedy or San Fran Nan bash GOA or CCRKBA. They always gnash their teeth and badmouth the NRA. They hate it viscerally.

When I'm unhappy with something that the NRA has done, I write them a letter or call.
I can do so as a Life Member with more credibility than a non-member.

I said something similar on another forumhttp://outdoorsbest.zeroforum.com/zerothread?id=144785 in December 2003 right after I became an NRA Life Member. That was in response to a thread that involved a lot of NRA bashing, and got quite heated.

The antis would love nothing better than to see pro-gun people weaken the NRA.

United we stand, divided we fall.

Same reason I'm a life member. I get a vote & when I have a gripe with them, it carries a bit more weight.
I'm also on the newsletter/alert lists for the other gun rights groups, so I can keep as up to date as possible. That allows me to send e-mails & rally others whenever it's needed.

Though when all is said & done the NRA is the big dog on the block. Their enormous membership is feared & hated by the anti's because a well organized group of that size is very hard to ignore.
