Summary

In late June, I was humbled when asked to testify before the California State Assembly in Sacramento in support of the above critical legislation initially proposed by Senator Henry Stern.  I am very thankful for Judie Mancuso, Founder, CEO and President for Social Compassion In Legislation (SCIL) who believed in me and asked me for my support in SB-1487.

Nicholaus Sackett, a Sacramento attorney who is instrumental in SCIL’s continued success with legislative issues also provided key testimony for SB-1487.

Two opponents who represented interests of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Safari Club International (SCI) also testified.

For years I have felt like a voice in the wilderness echoing concerns based on my professional expertise and opinion of the illicit wildlife trade’s continuous and unabated expansion across the globe. More

2nd Amendment….all that stands between you and the one world government

“The 2nd Amendment is all that has kept this increasingly tyrannical government from turning on us with full force. Its far easier to establish a one world dictatorship when the country you are trying to overtake has no means to fight back. There will continue to be mass shootings until we forfeit our 2nd Amendment…….then just as suddenly as they appeared, the mass shootings will stop. Except…..those committed by the government.”

1016328_420444734736266_378341861_n_004With the American public increasingly distrustful of government on all levels, the “war for your rights” is in full swing. The recent event in Orlando is the new catalyst for pushing for gun control, and those weak-kneed individuals who still believe government exists to protect them and keep them safe are whining and crying all over the net, in local newspapers and of course, mainstream media.

While MSM in particular attempts to paint those who resist the attempts to undermine the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, as “right wing extremists” and, “religious bible thumping fanatics”, I can assure you nothing could be further from the truth. I live in a heavily Democratic area and I know of no one…NOT ONE PERSON…who will not defend this right, and who would not fight to keep it. The intentional efforts to separate and divide the public so that we fight one another rather than focus on the real threat to safety in our communities, runs none stop. More

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,

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.

To kill the 2nd Amendment: The overthrow of the Constitutional Republic

It was with a great deal of sadness and disappointment that I viewed clips of Obama shilling for the United Nations Global Small Arms Treaty (ban) and even more disappointing to see police officers and sheriffs lined up behind him as he smiled and sold his attack on the 2nd Amendment.  I predicted back before the election that the UN Small Arms Treaty would be shelved until after the election, only to make sure Obama didn’t get a political black eye that might have turned the tide against him.  Sandy Hook made the perfect gunburn_deesopportunity to bring UN Small Arms mandates out into the public after the election. But you are not supposed to realize that the Obama wish list for gun control and eventual confiscation comes right out of the UN Small Arms Treaty.

With most all the gun owners of America poised and ready to fight back against any infringement on the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, Obama appeared in Minnesota Monday claiming that the NRA members support his attack on the 2nd Amendment.

Uh….no they don’t! And neither do the majority of us out here who don’t even own a gun.  All the fake public polls, all the talking points delivered via MSM, will not change the fact that as Americans, we are well aware of the federal governments historical desire to disarm us. More

What More Proof Do We Need That the NRA Isn’t What it Claims to Be?

Leave a comment

I have been writing, for some time, now, on Second Amendment issues and, in particular, about the fact the National Rifle Association (NRA) is a Trojan horse organization that has no interest in protecing the Second Amendment. I have presented a solid case here, before, that shows the NRA has, for seventy-five years, not only refused to call for the repeal of all existing gun laws (which is the only way to truly save the Second Amendment from further infringement), but that they have, in case after case, actually backed more gun control laws.

Usually, though, the NRA will attempt to disguise their actions by occasionally appearing to oppose some new gun law, now and then, just to keep up appearances. This is usually enough to fool their supporters who blindly continue to believe that the NRA is fighting for their rights. Funny thing, though; if that’s what the NRA is truly doing, then why are our Second Amendment rights almost gone now, as compared to decades ago?

Well, in yet another moment in its history in which its members should be finally made aware that the NRA is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, the NRA has mysteriously remained mute on the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. Sotomayor, a gun rights opponent, has ruled, in lower court cases, that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to the states, for one thing. Need I remind Ms. Sotomayor that the Constitution – of which the Second Amendment is a part – is the law of the land and overrides all other laws? No state, according to their constituional limitations, may pass laws that are in violation of the Constitution, anymore than the federal government may do so.

While, supposedly, Senate Republicans were hoping that the NRA would have something to say about Sotomayor’s appointment to the Supreme Court, strangely enough (or not), the NRA has stayed out of the issue, claiming it’s waiting for the Senate confirmation hearings. This should be interesting. I’ll wager right here and now that Sotomayor is appointed to the court no matter what the NRA may have to say about it. It’s already a done deal behind closed doors.

The NRA is NOT on Our Side

I have written here, before, that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has been, for the last seventy-five years, backing legislation that perpetuates the infringement of the Second Amendment, all while posturing as the “protectors” of it. I have shown, through various evidence, that this is so and I have become aware of yet another indicator.

I’m referring to a brief article from Associated Press (AP), which was put out this morning about an event scheduled for today in Oxford, Mississippi. This is a speaking engagement at the Ole Miss Federalist Society (based at the University of Mississippi) and the speaker is to be Sandra Froman, former president of the NRA. The title of her speech is to be  “Gun fight at the Supreme Court.”

There are a few things about this seemingly innocuous event that got my attention. The first was that the Ole Miss Federalist Society is a chapter of the Federalist Society, an organization that was founded in 1982 for “law and public policy studies” and supposedly consists of “conservatives and libertarians,” though we know there are many – and many in high positions of power within our government – who use the same labels and are anything but conservative or libertarian. The Federalist Society is also composed entirely of lawyers and law students (in the student chapters, of which Ole Miss is one of many). So, basically, the Federalist Society is a think tank.

If you read their own website, the Federalist Society seems innocuous enough, until one considers the very name of the organization implies that it continues the same thinking as the original Federalists who wrote and sponsored our constitution – which, as I have also written of before, replaced our original (and far superior) constitution, The Articles of Confederation in 1787.

As I have also pointed out before, the Federalists (led by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and others) were agents of the Rothschilds of London. Their assigned task was to subvert the young republic of the United States of America and to bring it under the control of the Rothschilds’ growing web of debt-based central banking that later captured England and has since enslaved the world. The Anti-Federalists were well aware of the international banking cartel and did everything they could to stop the Federalists from scrapping the Articles of Confederation and replacing it with a constitution that would suit the interests of the cartel. Failing in that attempt, they at least managed to get the Bill of Rights and the first ten amendments inserted into the new Federalist Constitution.

As it turned out, the Federalists, unfortunately, got their way and we were saddled with a new constitution in 1787 that provided, for the first time, for a central authority (the President) and which, more importantly, also provided for the possibility of a central bank to be established. The Articles of Confederation had ensured that neither of these could ever happen by providing that the executive powers of the government should reside with Congress, which was directly answerable to the people, and by providing that the original thirteen states could coin their own money, thus deliberately avoiding the possibility of a central bank.

If anyone questions that the Federalist Society supports the same international banking cartel today, then I suggest you have a look into the World Federalist Association (WFA), as well.

The World Federalist Association is an international globalist think tank that is closely allied with the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg Group. It seeks, as do the CFR, Trilateralists and Bilderbergers, the establishment of a world government and is the main body heading the World Federalist Movement. Former CBS news anchor Walter Cronkite, noted globalist himself, spoke before the World Federalist Association during the Clinton years.

So, what does all this have to do with the NRA? Well, you might ask why it is that a past president of the NRA – an organization that claims to defend your right to be armed – is speaking to impressionable young law students at a meeting of the Federalist Society, an organization that is (contrary to its own propaganda) most probably engaged in political subterfuge aimed at establishing a world government. Frankly, I’m not surprised, given that the NRA has had seventy-five years in which to find a way to repeal the mountain of laws that have violated the Second Amendment (something you would think they’d be attempting to do), yet has not even called for their repeal in all that time.

One might also wonder why it is that the Federalist Society was founded at Yale – home of Skull & Bones.  Are you beginning to connect the dots and see the big picture? Consider that the Federalist Society had been a “gateway” into the judiciary and the Justice Department of the Bush administration. Given that Barrack Obama now appears to be continuing all of the same programs established by the Bush administration – inlcuding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as toture and extraordinary renditions, as well as the agenda of his CFR/Trilateralist handlers – it seems quite likely this gateway still exists, as well.

But, getting back to the NRA, I remind you that Mississippi is among several states alleging to “declare sovereignty” from the federal government, while at the same time, passing legislation that will pave the way for gun confiscations during martial (though the bill – now law – that enables this was presented to the public as a “protection” against confiscation). The NRA supported this bill.
