Our Gun Rights – What Does the Future Now Hold

Donald Trump just won a hard fought campaign for President of the United State, to our amazement and grateful relief. During that campaign, he assured us that our gun rights would be safe if he were elected. Of that we are confident. Surely more confident than if the Hildebeast had won. But what really can we expect to happen to our rights.

Hillary Clinton is the Vile Criminal – Not Trump

Yesterday, Friday, October 7, 2016, the Democrats and the Liberal Media released a video showing Donald Trump riding a bus from “Access Hollywood”, during which he was making some sophomoric, crude statements about a women. It was not pretty and showed him to be less than respectful toward women. It does not make me proud of him, at least for that time and place eleven years ago.

Holly-er Than Thou

Liberal media outlets now are falling all over themselves with the news, trying to make this the attack that finally takes Trump out. Hillary and the media have been throwing everything they can at him, trying to take him out and hoping something will stick.  They think they have it now.  They know that they cannot compete with him in the arena of ideas so all they can do is attack him.

The truth of the matter  is    Continue reading

Democrats and Liberals are Mentally Ill

According to a Veteran Psychiatrist, liberal thinking individuals actually suffer from a mental disorder. They are Mentally Ill. An acclaimed veteran psychiatrist is making a case that the ideology motivating liberals is actually a mental disorder.  To my thinking, that makes a lot of sense. I don’t know how many times I have heard a liberal democrat, like Debbie Wasserman Schultz or even Hillary Clinton, making statements that just seem 180 degrees out of phase and I think, “How can she say that? It’s so not so.  She’s totally backward.”  But with Hillary we know that she believes that if you keep saying the same lie over and over that eventually the people will believe it.  That propensity though, may be linked to the problem described here.

Dr. Lyle Rossiter, is author of the new book, “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”, Liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. He says, Continue reading

Governor Brown Signs 6 New Gun Control Bills

Governor Moonbeam Removed Some More of Our Freedoms

Governor BrownOn this 4th of July weekend and Holiday, we here in the Socialist State we refer to as the People’s Republik of Kalifornistan, we get to also celebrate the loss of some more of our Freedom; Freedom that we thought was guaranteed by our Constitution and the Second Amendment. But when the people continue to vote Democrat they elect a Legislature that is 2 to 1 Democrat to Republican. As a result the Liberal Gun Grabbers are undeterred. The Republicans can do nothing and they watch the Dems, our Moral Superiors, pass whatever gun control law they want, no matter how much it infringes on our Second Amendment Right. And with an Uber Liberal Democrat Governor, Jerry Brown, they get signed into law at about the same ratio.

This is now Illegal

Gun Control Laws Should Be Repealed

Gun & Constitution 2If you take a look at the more than 13,550 gun laws we have in the United States including federal, state and local laws, I defy you to find even one that has saved a life, prevented a crime, prevented a mass murder or political assassination. It can’t be done. Gun Control laws do not save lives or make people safe. To the contrary, they make people less safe by denying them the ability to defend themselves from predation.  So now they want what they like to call “Common Sense Gun Laws”.  There is no such thing.  They all make citizens less safe.

Most gun laws on the books today are there as a result of an emotional, irrational over reaction to some tragedy or sudden perceived threat.  None of the laws are based on Constitutional Law, or are consistent with overall dominant public opinion. Each and every gun control law is Unconstitutional by     Continue reading

It’s Time To Eliminate The Gun Control Laws: Yes, All Of Them

By Michael Z. Williamson

Behavioral laws require three components to be effective.  They must accurately describe an action that causes harm to others. They must propose a penalty that disincentivizes the activity. They must be enforceable.

Williamson-books

Michael Williamson at Book Signing

Let’s consider the laws against murder. The harm done is obvious. The penalties range up to death. They can be enforced by an examination of the evidence during trial, and punishment.

How about “disturbing the peace?” If you plug in a Gibson ES35 guitar and a stack of Marshal and Hi-Watt amps at 2 a.m. and start playing Black Sabbath’s “Iron Man,” there’s a good chance your neighbors will complain.  If they do, we have a clear report of harm done (minor harm, but relevant), and can again have an examination, trial and punishment, probably a fine.

Of course, we could prevent some of those incidences by licensing guitars, having waiting periods on amplifiers, and requiring proof of need for any amp over 20 watts.

Wait, how would that work exactly?      Continue reading

Peruta v. San Diego Loses En Banc

Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals Shoots Down Suit to Outlaw California Concealed Carry Law

The Gun Grabbing Libs Had to Lie, Cheat and Steal to Get This One

“There is no truth in the law. Everybody lies. Stop searching for it.” — Al Pacino, “Misconduct”

I was watching Fox News last night when they Constitution & Gavelsuddenly broke from the story they had going, to discuss the decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals that had just been handed down.  They broke to get opinions from two panelists they had set up in front of a camera.  In keeping with the Fox motto of “Fair and Balanced” they had one who is pro guns and a gun grabber type.  After explaining the decision had finally been released after about a year and describing how the Court held that the ‘Good Cause’ requirement in California’s Law was ruled to be Constitutional, they broke to get opinions from their two panelists.

I have to admit that I probably didn’t hear a word that either one of them said. My mind was fixated on how under handed, deceitful and dishonest the cheating liberals are.  And this is no exception.  We gun carriers had finally won one last year when the first ruling had opined that the California Law that requires one to have a “good cause” was unconstitutional.  It made sense to us. After all, what part of “shall not be infringed” do they not understand. Requiring someone to show     Continue reading

The Most Logical Approach to Gun Ownership

I guess this has been around for some time now, perhaps about 10 or 12 years now but it still makes sense.  I received it as an email the other day and it says that Fred Maslack ‘recently’ proposed this as a bill but for as much as I can tell, he is not even still in the legislature anymore.  It has probably surfaced as a result of the recent new push for more gun control.  But it is still a great idea that came from someone in New England with a realistic head on his shoulders.

Flag GunVermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as well as Vermont’s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere.

Maslack recently proposed a bill to register “non-gun-owners” and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state.  Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun.  Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as ‘a clear mandate to do so’.  He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals.  Vermont’s constitution states explicitly that “the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State” and those persons who are “conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms” shall be required to “pay such equivalent.”  Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves, so that they are capable of responding to “any situation that may arise.” Continue reading

Diane Feinstein Calls for Renewal of Assault Rifle Ban

Well, that didn’t take long.  I thought it would be at least Monday before we heard from the politicians, but I guess I forgot about the Sunday TV shows. In my post from Friday, just two days ago, I predicted that it would be 2-3 days tops before we heard about the assault weapons ban.  And since then, all of the usual suspects have been coming out of the woodwork calling for everything from magazine size restrictions, to banning internet sales of ammunition and now the ever popular “assault weapons ban”.

Feinstein faced off on the gun control issue with Ron Johnson, Republican Senator from Wisconsin, on Fox News Sunday wherein she said, “Weapons of war don’t belong on the street.”  The Senator from California argued that the Federal Government should put a ban on rapid-fire weapons and large magazines.  She further said, “We’ve got to sit down and really come to grips on what is sold to average citizens.”

Senator Johnson insisted, “This isn’t an issue about guns.  It’s about a sick, demented, evil individual.  I don’t think there’s a solution for that in Washington.  We need to look at families and the education system.” He further said such legislation would do little to curtail mass killings but would instead “reduce America’s freedom.”  Senator Johnson argued, “This isn’t an issue about guns, this is really just an issue about sick, demented, individuals. I don’t think society can keep demented individuals from obtaining any type of weapon the want to kill people.”

Senator Feinstein continued with her rant on large magazines and military style assault rifles saying that it is time to re-instate the ban.  But Senator Johnson re-iterated, “We are talking about basic freedoms, and the Constitution’s Second Amendment and I am a strong defender and believe in that”.
He said, “I would hate to see a tragedy like this used to promote a political agenda to reduce American’s freedom.  Enough of our freedoms have already been taken away.  We don’t want to lose any more.”  Thank you Senator Johnson for your common sense approach.  It is unfortunate that we can’t get liberals like Diane Feinstein to understand the logic.

But liberals have no faith in families.  They believe that government is the only answer here because we are incompetent at teaching our children about life issues.  What’s more, we used to have rifle marksman classes in most of our high schools, but not anymore.

Yesterday, Senator Frank Lautenberg, Democrat from New Jersey, told the Huffington Post that he already has legislation ready that he plans to introduce for that will ban the sale of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  And today he made the ridiculous comment, “No sportsman needs 100 rounds to shoot a duck.”  No shit Sherlock.  We use a shotgun instead.  Unfortunately, he plans to introduce his legislation this next week just the same.

Yesterday too, New York Mayor Michael Doomberg started making demands that both of the Presidential candidates need to outline their policies with respect Federal gun laws.

And so it begins.

Newt Gingerich Believes All Men Should Have the Right to Bear Arms

At the annual convention of the NRA, Newt Gingerich gave a rousing speech that was met with much laughter and applause from the members attending.  One thing that was most notable in the things he said was that he believes that everyone on earth deserves gun rights and should have their own Second Amendment.

He also said that if he were elected President, he would “submit to the United Nations a treaty that extends the right to bear arms as a human right for every person on the planet because every person on the planet deserves the right to defend themselves from those who would oppress them, those who would exploit them, rape them or kill them.” 

Wow, compare that to our current “socialist in chief”.  He is currently lobbying members of Congress to adopt the U.N.’s proposed “Small Arms Treaty” that effectively would take away our guns and nullify our own Second Amendment.

I briefly digress here but the U.N. Small Arms Treaty that Obama is so enamored with would, “confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course) and that means yours, ban the trade, sale and private ownership of semi-automatic weapons” (again, that means yours), and other egregious things.  I could go on here but I refer you to an article on this in Forbes magazine from June 7, 2011 for more information on this horrific idea Obama wants to foster if he is re-elected to another term.

But getting back to Mr. Newt, he has a more logical idea that is 180 degrees the opposite – imagine that.  This is the man whom I feel should be at the fore front of our Presidential campaign.  I mean if he were to become our candidate for President on the Republican side, he would no doubt mop the floor with Obama.  This man speaks from the heart, unlike the Bam Bam who needs a teleprompter to remember his lines.  Mr. Newt speaks from the heart because it is part of his core, his personal beliefs, and moral fortitude.  He doesn’t need to be reminded what he believes in his sole.

His speech to the NRA members brought them to their feet with applause when he announced his idea for a different treaty that would empower all people.  “Let’s take the George Soroses and Hillary Clintons head on,” Mr. Newt said to the cheering crowd.  “They represent a world in which elites disarm the rest of us so we are then helpless when elites turn sour and when evil reappears.”

He also told the NRA members that “he has been much too timid and moderate in his defense of gun rights.”  I think that perhaps he should have been a little more vocal on these issues before now.  Maybe he might be a little farther ahead in the race for President.  Afterall, this is the man, out of the current stable of contenders that should become our President.  I mean, think of it – President Gingerich.  Sounds good, doesn’t it? Pass it on.  Maybe it will catch on.  It’s not too late.

“The right to bear arms comes from our Creator, not our government.” – Newt Gingrich

Gun Control – Do We Really Need It?

I couldn’t believe it the other day when someone whom I thought knew me, asked me, “So how do you feel about Gun Control?  Don’t you think we really need it?”  As if she didn’t know my answer to that!?  Looking back I now think she was just trying to get me going, but that’s OK too.  But as for Gun Control, let me put it this way.  Another great blog that I link to here, Extrano’s Alley, has this prominently displayed on the top of his front page and it pretty much sums it up.

There are more than 22,402 restrictive gun laws in force.  Of those, not even one has ever reduced crime. In fact, crime has increased after each of these laws, and the amount depends on the severity and level of enforcement of the law.

The fact is, (borrowing from the great movie with Humphrey Bogart, “Sierra Madre”) we don’t need no stinking badges – to carry our guns.  I added the last four words, but what I mean is we shouldn’t need no stinking permit to carry a gun, concealed or otherwise.  We shouldn’t have to show good cause to be able carry a gun, concealed or otherwise.  Let’s face it, criminals certainly don’t feel they need a permit to carry a gun when they are a committing a crime.  They’re already breaking the law.  Why should they worry about a stinking gun permit.

We already have the only permit we should ever need in the Second Amendment. Our Founding Fathers gave us the right to carry guns and they recognized that it was a right that should never be taken from us lest we see ourselves as subjects of a tyrannical government.  Our Constitution was written to restrict what Government can do – not restrict what citizens can do.

Just what part of “shall not be infringed” do you not understand?  And yet, every year, legislators devise some new way to infringe upon law abiding gun owners and restrict their gun right.  These same legislators took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States”.   But with every new Gun Control law they are further destroying the Constitution.  With every new Gun Control law they are violating that sacred oath and deliberately shifting the balance of power into THEIR hands and into the hands of the criminals.

That quote I placed above is probably a little old in that there are many more than 22,402 restrictive gun laws in these United States.  There are more laws every year, especially in California and New York – and Illinois, and Massachusetts, but I digress.  But not one of those Gun Control laws has ever stopped a murder, a burglary, armed robbery, car jacking, sexual assault – again I could go on.

Gun Control laws do absolutely no good to anyone but the criminals, because they actually make their job easier.  They only restrict law abiding citizens from being able to effectively defend themselves from others who have made crime their career choice.

New gun laws do accomplish one thing in that they secure the liberal legislators in their seats.  They appease their liberal base such that they will vote for them next time, confident that the same liberal hacks will continue to support ridiculous Gun Control laws.

I used to think that these new laws they write and pass must at least make them feel good in that they must feel that they have done something positive to protect society and keep them safe.  But any more I can’t believe that they could possibly continue to be that stupid.  When all of the evidence flies in the face of that notion, how can they really believe something so ridiculous?  Gun Control laws actually work to increase crime in every area or state they are tried.  Every large population center that has strict gun control laws, has violent crime that is out of control and on the rise every year.  It has gotten so bad that the crime statistics that they are reporting are deliberately cooked to try and show decreasing crime so they can continue support their absurd notions that Gun Control laws are working.

Gun Control laws are against the law in my opinion as every one of them goes against the Constitution of the United States and the Second Amendment.  Guns should always have a place in our Society or we will cease to be a free people.   The only laws we should even consider might be restricting those who have mental disabilities and violent criminals, although the latter does absolutely no good anyway.  But guns should never be in the hands of the mentally disturbed.  Although, there is another problem, how do you find those people before they commit some insane act?

Other than that, I believe the Gun Control laws we have now should be repealed.  Every law abiding citizen should be required to own a gun and know how to safely use it.  Crime in our country would amazingly become so much more infrequent that news bureaus would have to look other places for their news stories.  Of course they are doing a lot of that now already by making up new false issues in order to further liberal bias.  But that is another rant altogether that perhaps I will have to take on another day.

A society that does not trust its citizens with guns does not trust its citizens.   When citizens live in a society where only the police and military have guns, they are living in a police state  –  Anonymous
