Any questions?

August 23, 2012

“It is clear from the words of the founders of this country that the right to ‘keep and bear arms’ is an inviolable personal right. They protected this right by the Second Amendment to the federal constitution and by provisions of the constitutions of the states. This is a subject for debate only by those ignorant of our history, or those that purposely wish to deny us our rights and, ultimately, to subjugate us under the tyranny of government perverted from its constitutional foundations.” – George Mason, Father of the Bill of Rights

If you oppose the 2nd Amendment, you are an enemy of the Bill of Rights.

If you are an enemy of the Bill of Rights, you are an enemy of the Constitution.

If you are an enemy of the Constitution, you are an enemy of The People.

If you are an enemy of The People, you are an enemy of mine.

Why isn’t this front page news?

From the Columbus Dispatch

AURORA, COLO. —The psychiatrist who treated suspected movie-theater shooter James Holmes contacted a University of Colorado police officer to express concerns about Holmes’ behavior several weeks before the rampage, ABC News reported, citing unnamed sources.

The sources did not know what the officer approached by Dr. Lynne Fenton did with the information she passed along, ABC said in a report late Monday on its website.

Under Colorado law, a psychiatrist can legally breach a pledge of confidentiality with a patient after becoming aware of a serious and imminent threat that the patient might cause harm to others, ABC said. Psychiatrists also can breach confidentiality if a court has ordered them to do so.

University spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery declined to comment on what, if anything, the university police officer might have done with information provided by Fenton.

So, the gun laws worked exactly the way they were supposed to the liberals demanded (he was legally permitted to purchase firearms)…the psychiatrist did what she was supposed to do, with plenty of time to spare, but a public employee, sworn to protect the safety of citizens, did nothing and people died.

And of course the cries from the left immediately after the shooting, all the way up the chain, were for more reviews of existing laws (read more gun control).

The government apparatus dropped the ball on this one.  That doesn’t give anyone the right to use this tragedy as a call to further infringe my rights.

UN gun control treaty will reveal gun laws Obama really supports

Sometime later this week, the UN will finally unveil its Arms Trade Treaty. The exact date the treaty will be released is a secret.

Are they so afraid of the reaction that they are keeping even the date of release a secret?

Russia, China, France — with its new Socialist government — Britain and the Obama administration are writing the treaty behind closed doors. Yet even if the final treaty is being kept under wraps, we still have a pretty good idea of some of the requirements that will be in it.

This should be interesting…if the Obama administration is helping to write the treaty, it will pretty difficult to disavow their knowledge or support of what is surely going to be a draconian clamp down on private gun ownership.  All during an election cycle…pass the popcorn.

The group writing the treaty is not promising. Russia and Britain ban handguns and many other types of weapons. The possession of guns for self-defense is completely prohibited in China.

And these are such shining examples of countries where there subjects citizens enjoy personal freedom, liberty and no corruption…

The Obama administration is undoubtedly the most hostile administration to gun ownership in US history, with Obama having personally supported bans of handguns and semi-automatic weapons before becoming president…

No shit, wait til he gets reelected…

The treaty seems unlikely to ever receive the two-thirds majority necessary to be ratified by the US Senate, but that doesn’t mean it still won’t have consequences for Americans. In other countries with parliamentary systems, even if the relatively conservative parties oppose approval, ratification is just a matter of time until a left-wing government takes power.

Reduced private gun ownership around the world will surely lead to more pressure for gun control in our own country.

The treaty officially aims to prevent rebels and terrorist groups from getting hold of guns.

Bullshit – the treaty aims to make sure that governments are the only entities that possess small arms…that makes it so much easier to quiet dissent and make people disappear…

The treaty claims that at least 250,000 people die each year from armed conflicts (most of them killed by their own governments because they didn’t have the means to defend themselves – how ironical) and that the vast majority of deaths arise from so-called “small arms” — machine guns, rifles, and handguns (wielded by government employees).

Pro-gun group uses Chicago firearms buyback program to fund shooting camp for kids

A pro-gun group claims it flipped the script on Chicago’s firearms buyback program by selling old, broken rifles to the city and then using the money to buy guns and ammo for an NRA-sponsored shooting camp for kids.

“Guns Save Life,” based in Champaign, Ill., recently sold 60 firearms to the Chicago Police Department — 10 of which were manufactured before 1898 — in exchange for $6,240 in gift cards, according to group president John Boch. The sale also included five BB guns and a rickety pump-action shotgun that was held together by duct tape and zip ties, he said.

“They recognized it for the junk it was,” Boch said of the sale. “At one of the locations, one of the detectives was very tenacious … And hit the guys with a flurry of questions like ‘Where the hell did you get these, from a graveyard?’ ” But the department carried out the transaction anyway, and the organization used the proceeds to fund the youth shooting camp.

Boch said the money earned is being used to buy rifles and ammunition for an annual summer camp held at Darnall Gun Works & Ranges in Bloomington, Ill. “The real delicious irony here is that the city of Chicago is paying for rifles that we’re giving away to young people as part of this camp,” Boch told FoxNews.com.

“The program was intended to get unwanted and unused guns off the street to make the community safer. We provided them unused and unwanted guns.” Unwanted, because “they just didn’t work.”

Obama Looking For Ways Around Congress On Gun Policy

WASHINGTON — Faced with a Congress hostile to even slight restrictions of Second Amendment rights, the Obama administration is exploring potential changes to gun laws that can be secured strictly through executive action, administration officials say.

There’s a word for that.  It’s “Ukase.”  If the legally elected representatives of the people don’t pass the laws you want, just issue them by fiat.

Re-read that sentence and replace the word “second” with “first” or “fifth.”  Why is the reaction any different when it’s about the second? 

The Department of Justice held the first in what is expected to be a series of meetings on Tuesday afternoon with a group of stakeholders in the ongoing gun-policy debates. Before the meeting, officials said part of the discussion was expected to center around the White House’s options for shaping policy on its own or through its adjoining agencies and departments — on issues ranging from beefing up background checks to encouraging better data-sharing.

To be declared, defined and enforced by one or more of the the 20-some extra-constitutional, unaccountable “Czars” he has appointed, no doubt (see “Ukase” above).  Also note, none of the “stakeholders” present was anyone from the gun rights/second amendment side of the debate. 

Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “The purpose of these discussions is to be a productive exchange of good ideas from folks across the spectrum,” one official said. “We think that’s a good place to start.”

That’s a good place to start.  Because you sure as hell know he ain’t gonna stop there. This is part of the iWon’s Modus Operandi.  Do whatever he wants, make extra-constitutional laws and edicts, and then dare anyone to call him on it.

Earlier in the day, House Democrats joined New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to offer another possible starting point, announcing legislation that would make fundamental changes to the nation’s gun background check system. Sponsored by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), a longtime gun control advocate, the bill mirrors one introduced late last month by another New York Democrat, Sen. Chuck Schumer.

Yeah, that’s a true representation of all the “stakeholders” in this matter.  Shit, if he could have dug up Howard Metzenbaum and propped him in a chair, he would’ve been sitting there too.

“Too often, any serious discussion about guns devolves into ideological arguments that have nothing to do with the real problem,” Bloomberg, a co-founder of the coalition Mayors Against Illegal Guns, told reporters at a press event outside the Capitol. “Our coalition strongly believes in the Second Amendment. We also know from experience that we can keep guns away from dangerous people without imposing burdens on law-abiding gun owners."

Really?  You know from experience?!  Because New York and Chicago are so safe?  Please, point to one – JUST ONE – instance in the entire history of human existence that gun weapons control has (a) made the populace at large “safe,” and (b) has kept weapons out of the hands of “dangerous people.”  Oh, and then throw in the whole “without imposing burdens on law-abiding gun owners” part.

Go ahead…We’ll wait.

That’s what I thought.

For gun control advocates, however, executive action remains a more promising — albeit more limited — vehicle for reform than Congress. On Monday, The Huffington Post first reported that the Justice Department was convening meetings with groups from across the ideological spectrum in an effort to chart potential policy changes to Second Amendment law.

That must be the spectrum that goes from “Progressive” all the way to “Communism” – do not pass “Constitutionalism.”  Because every single person quoted in this article has a “D” after their name.  Every single one has fought their entire career for more gun control (and behavior control).

Gaah.  Go read the whole thing as long as you haven’t had your lunch yet…

 

Movin’ to Utah

January 27, 2011

Always had a spot in my heart for Texas – no shit-takers in their history.  That and my family lives there.  But, I am re-thinking my retirement plans.  Any state that [a] picks a “State Gun,” and [b] picks the John Moses Browning (PBUH) – designed 1911 to be their state gun – they get my vote…

Utah lawmakers propose M1911 as Official State Gun.

State lawmakers are debating whether to designate a semiautomatic pistol as the official gun of Utah ….The bill to make the Browning M1911 the official gun breezed through a committee hearing this week and is scheduled to be debated by the full House as early as Wednesday.

[T]he state should have the gun as one of its state symbols to honor John [Moses] Browning, a Utah native who invented it in 1911.
