Minnesota Gun Rights: A Bipartisan Attack on the 2nd Amendment

2 Comments

Editors Note: Quote from Australia:  “We can’t even defend ourselves….they disarmed us.”  The goal of all these incremental pieces of legislation are focused on eventually taking away your right to self defense.  Your guns represent no threat to the government as the weapons they are equipping our law enforcement departments with would render them useless anyway.  BUT!! What they are after is the psychological impact that would ripple across the country when the right to self defense against government tyranny has been totally destroyed.  And once this right is totally destroyed….you can only imagine how threatening government on any level would become. (end note:)

 

In the middle of the night, the Minnesota House of Representatives passed a massive gun control package as part of the Public Safety Omnibus Bill by a vote of 70-64!

This bill (Senate File 802) brings both ‘Red Flag Gun Seizure’ AND ‘Universal Gun Registration’ legislation onto the books here in Minnesota!

As you know, ‘Red Flag Gun Seizures’ would allow almost anyone to make a complaint with a judge and have your firearms confiscated for life — before you’ve been arrested, charged, or convicted of anything!

And Universal Gun Registration legislation would make felons out of countless Minnesota grandfathers who pass on their family firearms to their grandchildren, unless they first beg for government permission.

To see our LIVE recap on Facebook, click here or on the image below!

To watch this video on YouTube instead — GO HERE!

This just happened and I need you to take immediate action as this bill is going to the Senate where it could be voted on at any moment!

Please send this PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to your Senator right away, insisting that they kill this bill!

Senate File 802 is the nightmare bill that we have been fighting against since election night last year, and, with the House having passed this combined gun control bill — our freedoms are now in the hands of the Senate.

And as you know, Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka has been open to making a deal with gun-grabbers all session.

Even worse, with Senate Republican Caucus members like Scott Jensen and Paul Anderson already openly supporting versions of this legislation in the past, we can’t take anything for granted! More

Minnesota’s Benedict Arnold(s)

The attacks keep coming.

Not just from Senator Ron Latz. No, not even from Dave Pinto or Linda Slocum, the author of HF 3022, the gun-control MEGA Bill!

Gun owners are being attacked by “pro-gun” Republicans, hell bent to make a deal in the misguided hope that it saves their political hides in the upcoming elections!

Gun owners well remember Lyin’ Scott Jensen (R-Chaska) who promised to OPPOSE any and all gun control when he was running for office in 2016 but then quickly sided with Michael Bloomberg and Ron Latz by sponsoring Universal Gun Registration this year.

Now, Representatives Anderson (HD44A) and Loon (HD48B) have joined the large list of “Benedict Arnolds” in St Paul by stabbing gun owners in the back and sponsoring last-minute gun control hoping that Bloomberg’s anti-gun organizations will sing their praises at election time.HF4473, if enacted, would “encourage” gun owners to go through a government “background check” whenever they give a firearm to a family member or sell one to a friend.

In other words, through fear mongering tactics gun owners would be browbeaten into making sure the government can track, trace and register more and more firearms in the state of Minnesota.

This is nothing more than a watered down version of Michael Bloomberg’s Universal Gun Registration designed to be more palatable as they shove it down the throats of Minnesota gun owners to curry political favor with liberal media like the Star Tribune.

But they aren’t the only ones. More

Dear Senator Frankin……You need to rethink the expansion of the FBI powers

171-0620085940The FBI currently has more than 40,000 US citizens on its list of who they are afraid of. Think about that number for a minute. How realistic do you believe that number is? How likely do you believe it is that 40,000 US citizens are possibly preparing to become active terrorists at any given moment? And, with this list growing each day how possible do you believe it is that an actual terrorist could be identified in the mountain of useless information that is gathered each day? Now add in the 760,000 thousand international individuals also listed. Did your head just implode with the realization that this is not a realistic or manageable system? The FBI couldn’t identify a terrorist in this mess even if one were to stand on the street holding a sign in front of their offices.

The FBI conducted 23 million background checks for guns last year, the most ever, so expanded back ground checks is not really the issue. They obviously are already doing that. What the FBI and many politicians want is the right for the FBI to void due process (which they are also doing). In other words, you are guilty if they say so….no real evidence needed. 

NOTE**

In Oklahoma, the bombing of the Murrah building did not elicit calls for banning or limiting the use of fertilizer, supposedly the main component for the explosion, or for expanded back ground checks on those purchasing fertilizer. 168 people were killed.

When 9/11 happened…..why were there no calls to limit or ban box cutters for that matter. More than 3,000 people died.

These people, and many others in supposed “terrorist” attacks, were all murdered by terrorists and the governments response in each situation is to attack the natural rights and liberties of law abiding citizens, trashing our constitutional rights. Next comes a massive expansion of police state agencies whose focus appears to be on everyone, except the possible terrorists. More

Minnesota: More 2nd Amendment treachery from both sides

___________________________________________________________________

Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principals follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it . . .

_____________________________________________________________________

That great sucking sound you hear coming from the Capital is issuing from elected politicians as they bow,untitledbb scrape and pucker up for Bloomberg.  Bloomberg needs to go somewhere else to push his anti-2nd Amendment agenda.

Minnesota legislators both Republican and Democrat, have embarked on a mission to render the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution for the United States as void. Obviously enamored by the mere appearance of the highly detestable Michael Bloomberg from New York, a man who is reviled by many in his own state, politicians are lining up for the chance to do his bidding right here at home. Bloomberg showed up here in Minnesota after attacking New York gun owners and by co-opting a social group and converting it to a million mother’s campaign against owning guns in order to give his attack on the Constitution some kind of legs.

What are you people thinking?

I have no idea what it is going to take to make state legislators in every state realize that the public is not going to abide gun control laws. Most people realize this has nothing to do with preventing crime, and has only to do with limiting your right to defend yourself.  After all, an unarmed population is a compliant population, especially when only the criminals will have guns.  And make no mistake, if these first rounds of attacks are passed, more will come as they steadily chip away at the 2nd Amendment.

In fact, the bills currently under consideration in the Minnesota legislature are far more than that as your Constitutional right to due process is also relentlessly attacked. Also under attack is your right to speak out especially when in the presence of the political candidates who have promoted anti gun issues:

SF1915 by Senator Katie Sieben – restricts free speech near an election by subjecting efforts to call out candidate’s for their anti-gun records and to intrusive record keeping and reporting requirements. In other words, this is a “Gag-Act” designed to shut down Minnesota Gun Rights for exposing their actions to the public eye!

Well! She must be mighty proud to put her name on an open effort to abridge the 1St Amendment right to free speech.

NY SAFE ACT: WHADDYA GONNA DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU?

3 Comments

new-logo25By John W. Wallace – NY OathKeeper

Please send your ideas and suggestions for the “Plan A” to me by email:    john@NewYorkOathKeeper.com

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Every time I think about the Hitler-like, socialist, unconstitutional New York Safe Act that was passed in the middle of the night by the New York City dominated New York State Legislature and signed by a Governor who would be president, I think of the TV show “Cops” in which the theme song says: “Whaddya gonna do when they come for you – Bad Boys, Bad Boys” etc. etc.

We know that the state of New York arbitrarily came up with its own definitions of what so called “AssaultBE-A-qCCYAAzKlH Weapons” are. The definitions were obviously concocted out of thin air by a group of New York City “Girly Man” legislators who obviously know nothing about guns.

One of the things they identified that makes certain rifles “assault weapons” is if they have a loop on it for a bayonet. Never mind the fact that as far as I can determine, no person in New York State has been murdered or even assaulted by a person using a rifle with a bayonet attached to it in well over a hundred years. It doesn’t matter to these socialists because they will say and do anything to take our guns. That is their ultimate goal.

What is also interesting about this new law that was rushed through the legislature in the middle of the night is that there is a requirement that there can only be a maximum of seven bullets in a magazine. How did they come up with this magic number of seven? Unfortunately, the hastily passed legislation did not even exclude police officers. So, the criminals will have any number of bullets in their illegal guns, because they do not obey gun laws anyway, and the police officers and law-abiding citizens will be limited to seven. Never mind that seven bullet magazines are not even made in the USA.

The NY SAFE ACT makes certain rifles legally purchased in the past by American citizens, who happen to reside in New York State, illegal to purchase or sell to another state resident. This is clearly unconstitutional. Why has the New York State legislature concentrated their efforts on turning law-abiding American citizens into criminals using ex-post facto laws? The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that if a person doesn’t have a criminal background, laws that make something you own illegal when it was purchased legally, are unconstitutional. More

33323_1thmCOLUMBIA COUNTY – The Columbia County District Attorney is making good on a promise not to prosecute a man arrested under the SAFE Act.

DA Paul Czajka said he would not prosecute Gregory Dean Jr.

Mr. Dean, 31, of Hopewell Junction in Dutchess County, was pulled over earlier this month after State Police say the light over his license plate was out. He was found to be driving his car while having a suspended driver’s license, a misdemeanor under the state’s Vehicle and Traffic Law.

During the processing for driving while having a suspended license, Mr. Dean was found to be in possession of a licensed handgun that had 9 bullets in the magazine (2 bullets more than legally allowed under the NY SAFE Act). The State Police then charged him under the violation of the SAFE ACT.

When he appeared in the town Court to face the gun charges, the District Attorney said he would not prosecute and the charge was dismissed. Mr. Dean still faces the Driving while Suspended chsarges.

A large crowd of Pro-Second Amendment supporters was on hand at the court to support Mr. Dean.

We tracked this list back through several sites and were unable to determine who initially prepared it.  Thanks to them just the same!  The multiple attempts to pass gun laws abridging the 2nd Amendment are meant to by-pass the need for the states to ratify this unconstitutional treaty from the UN.  With several states passing nullification laws on several issues including gun rights, you would think these senators would get a clue and realize we will not be disarmed!

Gun rights protected, criminals prosecuted An alternative to a gun control bill

Gun rights protected, criminals prosecuted An alternative to a gun control bill

Today, DFL Representative Debra Hilstrom and a bipartisan coalition of legislators and sheriffs introduced a new bill which will address the very real issue of keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally ill, without infringing on the rights of law abiding Minnesota gun owners. Republican Rep. Tony Cornish, the House’s leader on gun rights, joined Hilstrom at the press conference to speak in favor of the bill. Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek, Carver County Sheriff Jim Olson,

Press conference YouTube video View the press conference on YouTube

The bill’s co-authors comprise more than half of the representatives, both Democrats and Republicans, in the Minnesota House. There were so many authors that Rep. Hilstrom had to introduce three identical bills to fit the names of all the co-authors!

HF1323 focuses on forcing government departments to quickly and accurately report criminal convictions and mental health and chemical abuse commitment data to the state and federal background check systems.

The bill also add a lifetime prohibition on firearm ownership for perpetrators of certain violent domestic felonies, and makes it easier for counties to prosecute the straw purchasers that the federal government won’t.

GOCRA is proud to have worked with Rep. Hilstrom, Rep. Cornish and the NRA to craft real solutions to real problems.

The bill has been referred to Rep. Michael Paymar’s Public Safety committee. Unfortunately, Rep. Paymar has suggested that he won’t give the bill a hearing, preferring instead his own bill, HF237, which includes many infringements of your rights, including universal registration disguised as background checks.

Please call and email Rep. Paymar, and insist that HF1323 be heard without delay.

Representative Michael Paymar (DFL) – Chairman 651-296-4199 E-mail: rep.michael.paymar@house.mn

The bill will also need a Senate companion bill. Please call YOUR senator and ask him/her to sign on as an author of this important legislation.

We’ll have more later, including a breakdown of every element of the new bill.

It was still sitting there in the wheelchair, right where I had left it. It hadn’t rolled itself outside. It certainly hadn’t killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so. In fact, it hadn’t even loaded itself.
Well you can imagine my surprise,  with all the media hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people. Either the media is wrong, and it’s the misuse of guns by PEOPLE  that kills people, or I’m in possession of the laziest gun in the world.
Alright, well I’m off to check on my spoons. I hear they’re making people fat.

Minnesota: Universal Gun Registration Bill – Hearings Thursday and Friday

Leave a comment

gocra_letterhead_email

The most dangerous bill this session is not a magazine ban, or an “assault weapon” ban. It’s universal registration, masquerading as “universal background checks.”

It’s called SF 458, and it will be heard on THURSDAY at the state capitol. GOCRA will be there to fight it. Will you?

SF 458, among other faults, would make you a criminal, punishable with up to a year in jail, if you buy or sell a pistol or cosmetically frightening rifle without doing the transfer through a licensed dealer (who will charge you $25 to make a permanent record for the federal government) or without the buyer getting a purchase permit (for which the police chief or sheriff will charge another $25).

Of course, these costly “background checks” won’t stop criminals from stealing guns, buying them on the street, or from sending their girlfriends and sisters (who have clean criminal records) into gun stores to buy the guns for them.

That’s because, of course, criminals don’t obey laws.

The gun banners know this any step to make guns harder to own and easier to take away is a win for them.

Whether you can come to the hearings or not, email and call your Minnesota senator and representative and tell them you won’t stand for it. More

It’s time to let your voice be heard at the Minnesota Capitol!

We need you to once again show the Minnesota Legislature that real Minnesotans oppose infringements on Second Amendment rights!

Senate Judiciary Committee chair Ron Latz, a consistent voice against gun rights, has scheduled three hearings next week to discuss the numerous gun control bills introduced this session. They hearing times are:

Thursday, Feb. 21, Noon to 2:30 p.m.

Thursday, Feb. 21, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

Friday, Feb. 22, Noon to 6:00 p.m.

While Senator Latz delayed public announcement of these hearings until Wednesday night, he apparently tipped off anti-rights groups early Wednesday morning!

We don’t know yet which bills will be heard when, but there are plenty of bad bills to go around.

We will watch the committee schedule for any last minute changes.

Please call and email members of the committee and urge them to OPPOSE infringement of your rights: More

DFL’er Alice Hausman launches an ex post facto attack on gun rights

2 Comments

new-logo25Marti Oakley        copyright ©2013

____________________________________________________________

Below is the video of Alice Hausman DFL, 22A, MN, delivering her opening attack on the 2nd Amendment in the House Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee of 2/6/13.  Sighting gun deaths from countries such as Japan which does not have the right to keep and bear arms, Hausman makes no reference to that fact that these countries are defenseless while the US citizens have more than 500 million privately owned guns.  Or, that gun deaths in the countries she alludes to are usually the result of government attacks.  gc indian Furthermore, I know of no one on either side who is remotely concerned with what are most likely fictionalized stats from other countries.  After all I doubt few of the countries she mentions keep actual tally’s on the number of people the governments execute routinely.  Obviously, our own government doesn’t keep any records either and they have empowered themselves to kill us for any, or no reason at all.

The remainder of Hausman’s remarks are nothing more than a re-hash of UN Global Small Arms Treaty mandates which OBama is desperate to implement.

As Hausman concludes her attack on the 2nd Amendment, she quickly folds up her tent and scurries from the room, leaving her lobbyist to listen to public comments….AS DID EVERY OTHER DEMOCRAT.

For some reason, violating the constitutional prohibition on ex post facto laws, as well as your 4th and 5th Amendments in addition to the gross infringement on the 2nd Amendment is okay…….but staying to face the people whose rights you are violating knowing that you your self have violated the very premise under which you were elected is too much to ask.  Cowards are like that.

From Powerline

Under the Democrats’ legislation, no one can buy or possess an “assault weapon” in Minnesota. If you already own one as of February 1, you can keep it. But you have to register it, and give the state permission to inspect your home–which is the only place you can keep the “assault weapon”–to make sure you are storing it properly, and undergo annual background checks. You can’t sell the firearm or give it away, and when you die, your heirs are required to either destroy it or “surrender the weapon to a law enforcement agency for destruction.” So the statute represents a ban, followed by confiscation.

If people actually read the bills, especially HF 241-244 they will find out it actually turns many lawful gun owners into felons. HF 241 calls for registration and annual back ground checks and home inspections, by force if necessary.

So how many of you are willing to comply? And why is no one moving to recall this woman from office?

Minnesota H.F. 419: Declaring federal laws restricting gun rights unenforceable

4 Comments

www.nationalgunrights.org

(Graphic by MrConservative.com)

Despite this week’s assault on your gun rights, there is some good news.

At least a few Minnesota lawmakers are standing up to protect your right to keep and bear arms.

State Representative Steve Drazkowski (R-21B) and 17 co-sponsors have introduced a bill — H.F. 419 — that would declare any new federal laws or executive orders restricting your Second Amendment rights unenforceable in Minnesota.

Unfortunately, this bill will go before the very same anti-gun Public Safety committee that is pushing forward with the largest assault on your gun rights in state history.

Five State Representatives — hell bent on destroying your right to keep and bear arms — even got up and walked out before opponents could speak against the anti-gun bills during yesterday’s hearings.

Since they refused to listen to you, it’s now up to you to give them an earful.

Call them at 651-296-2146 or scroll to the email below for their direct contact info.wonka2-290x189

Demand they apologize for ignoring Minnesota gun owners. Tell them to abandon their anti-gun agenda then schedule a hearing for H.F. 419 and pass it immediately!

Then when you are done, please thank Representative Steve Drazkowski at rep.steve.drazkowski@house.mn for standing up for your Second Amendment rights.

In anticipation of the appearance of King Obama on Monday, February 4th, four DFL’ers here in Minnesota submitted their [coincidentally identical to Obama’s]  proposed legislation that infringes on the 2nd Amendment.  Not only have these people decided that they are not constrained by the Constitution for the United States, Supreme Court rulings or any other lawful obstacle to infringing on the 2nd, they also seemGun-Control-Works-Pictures-e1342051099803 to have forgotten the oath they swore upon taking office declaring that they would defend that Constitution.

**************************************************************************************************

December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection”. The slaughter began AFTER the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. When the final round had flown, of the 297 dead or dying, two thirds (200) were women and children.

Around 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, over half cut down by friendly fire from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous comrades-in-arms. Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry were deemed “National Heros” and awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of cowardice. More

It never ceases to amaze me how Legislators just don’t seem to get the concept of reality. Especially an individual who as a former Police Officer should know the Constitutional Rights of every American. That is their job.

Somewhere between Brooklyn and the Beltway, Senator Eric Adams lost sight of not only the Constitutional Right of Citizens to own Firearms, but he also seemed to have misplaced his study of The Declaration Of Independence. If he had retained this knowledge, there could be no way he would have introduced S2994 . Contained within the entire 734 words of this proposed legislation is the condemnation of every legal gun owner who resides in New York State.

Illinois FOID Carriers - Whatcha' doing on March 10th?

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Since yesterday,  13 Senators have added themselves as Co-Sponsors or Chief Co-Sponsors for the right to keep Illinois Citizens FOID information private.

Apparently they started receiving many, many, many calls stating;

“What’s this we hear about people being able to FOIA my personal information?”

Once again Illinois Citizens are making a difference by contacting their Legislators. However the Mainstream Media (MSM) is once again portraying this as a “losing proposition” for Gun Owners. The Chicago Tribune has this to say:

Members of the House Judiciary Committee on civil law voted 5-5 to halt a bill from advancing that would prohibit state police from making public the names of the 1.3 million holders of Firearm Owners identification cards. The measure’s sponsor, Republican Rep. Ron Stephens of Greenville, says he will keep trying to get the ban approved.

What is most interesting? There are no recorded votes on HB 7 the companion bill mentioned above. Who has become Co-Sponsor or Chief Co-Sponsors? More

Illinois FOID Information To Go Public

9 Comments

Amended : Unless the Illinois Attorney General likes a different option.

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

According to Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigans office, Firearm Owner’s Identification (FOID) card information should be public.

The Illinois attorney general says state police must release the name of everyone in the state who is authorized to own a gun.

Illinois state police determine who gets a Firearm Owners Identification card, which allows people to own guns. The police have always kept the list private.

Note that the statement went from “should” to “must”. The New York Times recently ran a piece after obtaining 37,000 names of gun owners in New York City and some of the names might surprise readers. Who cares, it’s only privacy that is being discussed here.

The good news is apparently Senator Kirk W. Dillard of Illinois decided this was not such a great idea. In fact, he introduced SB0027 to specifically combat the release of FOID information and to protect those denied unless involved in a criminal investigation.

Amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act. Provides that notwithstanding any other provision of law, the names and information of applicants or holders of a Firearm Owner’s Identification (“FOID”) Card are considered private and shall not be disclosed. Provides that no State or local law enforcement agency shall provide lists of information pertaining to FOID Card holders or applicants. Provides that a law enforcement agency may disclose whether an individual has or has not been issued, applied for, or denied a FOID Card in connection with a criminal investigation. Effective immediately.

Here is an interesting question. If a non-law abiding individual wanted to stage a series of home invasions to specifically target a weapon, how would that individual know where to go? Why – FOIA it of course!

If you are a citizen of Illinois who believes that Privacy should be protected, I encourage you to complete several steps:

North Carolina SB 141 NIB : The Right To Conceal Carry For Special People.

Left: Citizen Right: Government Employee

Arrogance abounds in the halls of North Carolina Legislature. All citizens are special, but according to SB 141(pdf) – some are “more special” than others

State lawmakers last week introduced a bill that would allow North Carolina district attorneys, assistant DAs and investigators to carry concealed weapons while on official business. Sen. Debbie Clary, R-Cleveland, said some prosecutors fear falling victim to violence.

“They want the right to protect themselves,” said Clary, a co-sponsor of the bill. “They have a very dangerous job just as all of our law enforcement does.”

Partial Text:

A BILL TO BE ENTITLED
AN ACT TO PROVIDE THAT ANY DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ASSISTANT DISTRICT
ATTORNEY, OR INVESTIGATOR EMPLOYED BY THE OFFICE OF A DISTRICT
ATTORNEY WHO EITHER HAS A CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMIT THAT IS
VALID IN NORTH CAROLINA OR WHO HAS BASIC LAW ENFORCEMENT
TRAINING CERTIFICATION IN NORTH CAROLINA IS EXEMPT FROM THE
GENERAL PROHIBITION AGAINST CARRYING A CONCEALED WEAPON AND
FROM THE PROHIBITIONS AGAINST CARRYING A WEAPON ON CERTAIN
PREMISES OR IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.

Here is an interesting question to ask the Sponsor(s) of SB 141 – why can’t Defense Attorneys be granted this special status along with Government Employees? More

10th Amendment Alive In Utah

Last week I wrote a little blog about HB 365. Thankfully PPJ was contacted by Conner who commented:

I am the state coordinator for the Utah Tenth Amendment Center and drafted this bill. It is currently under legislative review with Mr. Asplund. The text should hopefully be released this week.

We created the website http://www.utahintrastatecommerce.org to highlight the efforts around this and future bills of this nature.

According to the UTAC site, last year Utah took up Gun Rights as well:

In 2010, the Utah legislature passed, and the Governor signed, SB-11 (as did many other states). This law exempts firearms that are manufactured and sold within Utah from any federal regulation. A key paragraph reads:

A personal firearm, a firearm action or receiver, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in the state to be used or sold within the state is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce.

If you reside in Utah, or would like more information concerning 10th Amendment Freedoms, I encourage you to visit their blog for timely updates.

Our thanks to Conner

My old grandpa said to me

 “Son, there comes a time in every man’s life when he stops bustin’ knuckles and starts bustin’ caps and usually it’s when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.”

I don’t carry a gun to kill people.

I carry a gun to keep from being killed.   More

Mexican drug cartels buying weapons from around the world: Far easier than running the border with a load

______________________________________

While our Border Patrol and law enforcement agencies along the southern border are attacked on a daily basis by drug cartels and others, our government sits idly by and does virtually nothing. Jim DeMint’s recent attempt to pass legislation to finish the fence was rejected; this while American citizens are kidnapped, tortured, harassed and terrorized and murdered in the war that is escalating on our southern border. 

Eric Holder, our current Attorney General, like all his predecessors, has refused to perform his duty under Title 8 of the USC and defend the border.  Instead our border agents and law enforcement are prohibited from taking any action in defense of that border, even as they and the communities around them are attacked in life threatening situations.   

The State Department and other government talking heads, along with a dutifully controlled and compliant MSM (for morons) continues its propaganda about how the cartels are armed with weapons supposedly purchased from gun dealers along the border or, that they are being bought off the streets elsewhere in the US and shipped down to Mexico.

By Sam Slom, 5/12/2010

Hawaii Reporter:  Gov. Linda Lingle today signed into law two important bills preserving 2nd Amendment rights passed by the recently adjourned 25th Hawaii State Legislature.

SB 358, SD1, HD2, which I introduced, is now known as (Act 96). This bill establishes provisions relating to prohibition against seizure of firearms or ammunition during emergency or disaster, suspension of permit or license. Prohibits any person or government entity to seize or confiscate, under any civil defense, emergency, or disaster relief powers or functions conferred, or during any civil defense emergency period, or during any time of national emergency or crisis, any firearm or ammunition and permit or license of any individual who is lawfully permitted to carry or possess the firearm or ammunition and who carries, possesses, or uses the firearm or ammunition in a lawful manner and in accordance with the criminal laws of this State.

Arizona no longer requires a permit to carry a concealed gun

Leave a comment

by: Michael Webster / Laguna Journal

____________________

A new Arizona law allows any U.S. citizen 21 or older to carry concealed weapons without needing a permit from the state first. New Mexico is expected to follow Arizona’s lead.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed the law with the no-permit requirement into law recently, The new law will go into effect 91 days after the State Legislature adjourns so it will be early summer of 2010 meaning the law would take effect sometime in the summer, according to reports.
“I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well,” Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement.

Arizona gun owners can still get concealed-weapon permits under the new law, if they want to, but would not be required. Many Arizonan’s are expected to keep their CCW permit so that when they travel they will be legal in the states that have reciprocating agreement. Also, Arizonan’s wanting permits will see the education requirements change under the new law: classes no longer will have to be set number of hours or include any hands-on use of the weapon. More

Arizona concealed weapons bill expected to become law

Within the next week, Arizona could become the first state with a large urban population to allow U.S. citizens to carry a concealed firearm without a permit throughout the state of Arizona. Only Alaska and Vermont have similar laws.

The Arizona House voted Thursday to make the state the third in the nation to allow people to carry concealed weapons without a permit, sending the governor a bill that would allow Arizonans to forego background checks and classes that are now required.

Currently, in Arizona carrying a hidden firearm without a permit is a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500.

Senate Bill 1108, crafted by Sen. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, passed in the House of Representatives on Thursday with a vote of 36-19 and no comments from either side.

“This is a big day,” National Rifle Association lobbyist Matt Dogali said. “This is a major restoration of a principal right.” More

Do you have weapons that are not locked up in your home?

A PPJ reader asked us to share this with all of you:

Been to the doctor recently?  I just went for my check up and what a surprise!

The questionaire I was asked to fill out prior to seeing the doctor has now expanded to twelve (12) pages.  On page ten (10) appeared this question:

“Do you have guns in your home that are not locked up?”  My answer was: “None of your damn business”.

The questions that comprised the rest of the questionaire were on family history (not applicable). 

Do I smoke? How much? How often? (Not Applicable)

Do I drink? How much? How often?  (Not applicable)

This was page after page of data mining that had no bearing on the cause for me to be there to which I responded: NOT APPLICABLE. 

Why didn’t they ask me if I had been forced to consume gmo contaminated food?

Why didn’t they asked if I was forced to drink fluoridated water?

Why didn’t they ask if I had been previously poisoned by lethal pharmaceuticals?

The doctor asked me how I expected him to treat me effectively if I wouldn’t supply all this non-relevant information? I responded:

“I guess you’re going to have to actually pay attention to me and actually try to practice medicine”.

I was told to find a new doctor if I wasn’t going to cooperate.  I think I would be better off staying away from them altogether.

Jackass Alert #11

Gongratulations! Sen. Harry Reid!  You been nominated!

According to the latest campaign to encourage one and all to support the big “O’s” Health Care push, the big gun has been pulled out. The “R”…………

“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans have come up with is this: ‘Slow down, stop everything, let’s start over.’ You think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right,’’

Reid said on the Senate floor. “In this country, there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early, let’s wait – things aren’t bad enough about slavery.’”
Let us examine the “right side of history” by the Democrats and how they really acted shall we?

Which Senator filibustered for over 24 hours against the Civil Rights Act in 1957 setting a record?

Senator Strom Thurman (A Democrat)

Face it folks, this is Propaganda in it’s truest forms. Currently the Democratic controlled government would like to take away gun ownership rights, monopolize small local food production, tax you more, pay you less, educate your children in a manner they see fit : if that is not Slavery, I just don’t know what else it could be.

 

A Gathering for Freedom and Liberty by John Wallace

Speech: A Gathering for Freedom and Liberty
06-17-2009 7:31 pm – Wallace
Text of Speech by John Wallace – delivered at the Albany Tea Party’s “March on Albany” Rally, at the State Capitol in Albany, New York on June 16, 2009

I want to thank the members of the Albany Tea Party for giving me the opportunity to say a few words at this great gathering for Freedom and Liberty. Our country’s Founders told us that Governments get their just powers from the consent of the governed and whenever the government becomes destructive of these ends, it is not only the people’s Right, but it is their Sacred Duty to change the government, and that includes the dysfunctional New York State Government.

My fellow citizens, although some foreign countries and terrorists groups do indeed pose serious threats to our country and our state, in 2009 the greatest threats to our freedoms and liberties are not coming from them, but rather, they are coming from within our own country; from our federal government and from our New York State government, because they no longer represent us. That is why we have come here today from all parts of the state, from all walks of life and from all political parties and views: TO RECLAIM OUR FREEDOMS AND LIBERTIES.

The America people, including those of us who live here in New York State, are losing our freedoms and liberties because of corrupt politicians, political correctness, a lack of basic common sense by our leaders, as well as the negative influence of special interest groups who are pushing their questionable agendas upon New Yorkers and the rest of the American people from a hundred different directions at once.

In 1863, Abraham Lincoln, described our nation as “a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. I’m afraid that is no longer true. In 2009, we now have federal government and a New York State government of the special interest groups, by the special interests groups, and for the special interest groups.

To those New York State and federal elected officials who may be listening out there today, “We The People” have some demands to present to you today:

We demand FREEDOM FROM CORRUPT ELECTED OFFICIALS who accept millions of dollars in bribes from Special Interest groups every year. More

Snake oil salesman and charlatan extraordinaire, Rob Kall, has weighed in on the “von Brunn/domestic terrorist/extremist” topic.

Do you think this “progressive” leader of a “liberal” website would have come down on the side of free-speech, the constitution, and pointing out the government’s using this situation as a catalyst for the passage of the very Homegrown Terrorism bill that Rob himself opposed a year ago?

You think he would stand up for the right of freedom of expression just so long as that expression doesn’t call for violence? Do you think he would call for the need of a “well informed population” for the preservation of a free and open democracy?

You think Rob Kall, biofeedback snake oil peddler and motivational speaker, would take a stand against the targeting of some of the very people that helped him build his website empire? These same people that he just happened to kick out of the site they helped him make just days before all this “extremist violence” started happening? More

Progressive View of Gun Rights: 2A All the Way.

Because this essay sparked strong reaction, OEN owner Rob Kall has convinced me that I could better make my case for Second Amendment advocacy if I clarified my politics: I am a progressive populist. As a progressive, I value, work toward, and believe in an ever-expanding recognition of equality for all peoples. I have no tolerance for intolerance. Owning personal firearms levels the playing field somewhat for those most vulnerable to abuse: women, the elderly, the poor, and the handicapped.  I’m a populist because I feel no allegiance to or from elites. Instead, I fear the vast expansion of governmental power over the past decade, at the expense of the Rule of Law, and at the expense of basic human rights — particularly the 800-year-old Magna Carta provision for habeas corpus. 2A advocacy is an egalitarian issue. ~ RA

 (Excerpted from the full article at  www.opednews.com)

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

Gun rights are neither liberal nor conservative, feminist nor patriarchal, Democrat nor Republican, Left nor Right. Gun rights are populist at their core, in defense against government tyranny at their widest application, and in self-defense at their most personal application.  
The debate over gun rights is vast and well-documented. The basic arguments for an armed citizenry are:
  

  • To maintain political order and prevent tyranny;
  • To protect community from outside invasion;
  • Personal defense and crime prevention; and
  • Sport and hunting.
  • The basic arguments against an armed populace ignore history or adopt a Pollyanna view toward government. Plenty of folks, on the Right and on the Left, and those in-between, recognize the value of preventive armament. We recognize that bipartisan-passed legislation over the past nine years strips US citizens of their sovereignty and destroys the Bill of Rights. (All this legislation, because it’s unconstitutional, is void, in my non-legal opinion.) 
    Some history – Jews and Other Genocides
    In 1981, Morton Grove, Illinois became the first U.S. city to ban the possession of firearms. Next came Evanston, Illinois, which passed a similar ordinance without controversy.  But when the measure was proposed in nearby Skokie, it was soundly defeated.  Skokie, populated by Holocaust survivors, knew the merits of personal armament and the dangers of its lack. (Alderman and Kennedy)  
    Some researchers took this argument on a survey of seven nations that committed genocide in the 20th century, determining that in each instance, citizens were legislatively disarmed prior to their mass extermination by their government.  In Lethal Laws: Gun Control Is the Key to Genocide, the authors demonstrated that these nations that perpetrated genocide had chosen a victim population which was disarmed.  If the intended victims were not already gun-free, then the murderous governments first got rid of the guns before they began the killing.
