As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:
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.
INFRINGE (from Merriam-Webster):
to encroach upon in a way that violates law or the rights of another <infringe a patent>
Pretty simple, yes? In fact, so cleanly written by the founders that it would likely be impossible that a five year would not understand it. Yet…..there are millions of globalist tools out there that believe that background checks, registration, confiscation, and banning guns would stop violence. Alas, that isn’t the point of this post. What these assclowns do not get (even though we keep banging our heads against the wall in an effort to educmacate them) is that it does not matter what they think about the Second Amendment and gun violence; what matters is that this amendment is in place to STOP TYRANNY like the kind we have been experience for a couple decades now. The founders of this great nation knew that if power became centrally located (like we are experiencing currently with the District of Criminals), we would lose our GOD-GIVEN rights, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and our lives. What is even sadder is that the first idiots marched off are going to be these tools of the globalists once their usefulness has come to an end. The founders wanted to make this amendment and it’s purpose so simple that no one would even think to fiddle around with it. Welcome to the brainwashed progressive agenda that does not want Americans to know about the legacy of collectivism.
In an effort to possibly get through to some of our brainwashed fellow Americans, I am posting a video from Publius Huldah on why every single law that has been passed INFRINGING ON THE 2ND AMENDMENT is un-Constitutional and therefore, null and void. If you think I will be registering any of my firearms and/or handing them over to the government willingly, you are sadly mistaken.
Publius Huldah Shows Federal Gun Control Is Unlawful
This is a standing invitation to my fellow Americans: If congress ever enacts a law mandating the registration and/or a production ban of detachable magazine semiautomatic rifles then you are hereby invited to the town square of your local community. There, burn barrels will be set up and we will publicly burn Form 4473s, FFL Bound Books, state and local registration records, and the sales receipts for every firearm in the United States. On that same day, FFL holders and public officials holding electronic firearms records will simultaneously erase those records, permanently and irretrievably. (Using special file erasure software such as Blancco, X-Ways, and Stellar Wipe, or though the physical destruction of disk drives.)
Spontaneous Gatherings, Spontaneous Combustion
This burn barrel day–likely to be held the day after the President signs any new draconian legislation–will include speeches, public prayers, and the blessing of those who have gathered by ministers, rabbis, and priests.
The core of the activities on that day will be stalwart public defiance of any new unconstitutional law(s), the open and notorious destruction of records that might be used to enslave us, and vocal public affirmations of solidarity of free men and women, in the face of tyranny. This will be a defining moment for America–a line drawn in the sand. We will forthrightly declare that we will not obey any unconstitutional law and that we will treat it dismissively, as if it had never been enacted — nunc pro tunc. We will pledge ourselves to the defense of liberty, both individually and collectively. We will vow that if ever called to jury duty, we will nullify any unconstitutional laws, vacating the charges against the accused, in accordance with our long-standing right as jurors. (See: www.FIJA.org.)
The Law is On Our Side
We will publicly re-affirm some long standing precepts of American jurisprudence, to wit:
§ 195 Generally
The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, whether federal or state, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law(1) but is wholly void(2) and ineffective for any purpose.(3) Since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it,(4) an unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed(5) and never existed;(6) that is, it is void ab initio.(7) Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.(8)
Since an unconstitutional law is void, it follows that generally the statute imposes no duties,(9) confers no rights,(10) creates no office(11) or liabilities,(12) bestows no power or authority on anyone,(13) affords no protection,(14) is incapable of creating any rights or obligations,(15) does not allow for the granting of any relief,(16) and justifies no acts performed under it.(17)
Once a statute is determined to be unconstitutional, no private citizen or division of the state may take any further action pursuant to its provisions.(18) A contract that rests on an unconstitutional statute creates no obligation to be impaired by subsequent legislation.(19) No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law,(20) and no courts are bound to enforce it.(21) A law contrary to the United States Constitution may not be enforced.(22) Once a statute has been declared unconstitutional, courts thereafter have no jurisdiction over alleged violations.(23) Persons convicted and fined under a statute subsequently held unconstitutional may recover the fines paid.(24)
Dom Raso, a former Navy Seal has become a commentator for the NRA and puts forward yet another compelling argument against gun control legislation; namely, when SHTF, who is in the middle of it? The police, the politicians, or you? He also points out that now that he is a civilian, he is no longer considered responsible enough to use a firearm by politicians and military brass pushing gun control.
Monster readers may or may not be familiar with Bill Whittle and his continuing role as the ‘Virtual President’ attempting to ‘introduce some common sense into modern American politics’. I have posted his press conference on what should be coming out of the White House concerning North Korea’s aggressive stance on the front page. It’s well worth taking a few minutes to watch. The following is a 7 minute clip from his 2013 State of the Union Address concerning gun control legislation, un-Constitutional actions coming out of congress, and treason. It is logical, reasonable, and one of the most convincing speeches about guns, violence, and the arrogance shown by the political elites that I have seen in a very long time. Please feel free to send it on…
Therefore, I am directing the virtual attorney general to aggressively challenge any gun control laws that violate Amanda Collins’ right not to be raped and Brianna Dennison’s right not to be murdered. – Virtual President, SOTU 2013
“The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” – Unknown
Harry Reid has placed S649: Safe Communities, Safe Schools Act of 2013 on the Senate calender for this Thursday and it appears the usual GOP suspects (with the surprising exception of Tom Coburn; what the hell was he thinking?) are lined up to allow debate.
Yes, boys and girls, the insanity of T.A.R.P., the Stimulus Package, Obamacare, FISA, NDAA, the Patriot Act, and Debt Ceiling increases is about to happen yet again, and the GOP will AGAIN (shock, dismay!) go right along with the dems and then cry foul after the fact. Does the GOP really believe that playing nice with the Dems is going to go any differently this time or are they just lying to us again? I’ll take door #2 Monty!
Now prepare yourselves for the next stage of the scenario; the yelling, screaming, and faxing; only to have another liberty and freedom destroying 1500 or 2000 page monstrosity shoved down our throats, where you can then take it to the Supreme Court and be told that yet another law infringing on the 2nd amendment is completely Constitutional (just like the federal government controlled and implemented Obamacare). If it wasn’t so late in the day, the whole dance would actually be comical. Unfortunately, Rome is completely engulfed in flames (as we pour trillions of fiat dollars into the banks) and they are opening the door to removing all fire extinguishers from any and all homes.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate’s top Democrat has set Congress’ first showdown vote for Thursday on President Barack Obama’s gun control drive as a small but mounting number of Republicans appear willing to buck a conservative effort to prevent debate from even beginning.
Reid said he did not know if he had the 60 votes he will need to defeat the conservatives’ roadblock. But at least eight Republicans have said they want to begin debate or have indicated a willingness to consider it: Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, Susan Collins of Maine, Roy Blunt of Missouri and Mark Kirk of Illinois.
In a written statement, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, said conservatives want to prevent Obama from rushing the legislation through Congress “because he knows that as Americans begin to find out what is in the bill, they will oppose it.”
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he will join the conservatives’ attempt to block debate.
The bill would expand required federal background checks to nearly all gun transactions — a provision Reid would try to replace with the completed agreement between Manchin and Toomey. It would also stiffen penalties for illegal firearms trafficking and provide a small boost in school safety aid.
Obama intentionally did not mention gun control in his State of the Union, but aides say that in the next two weeks the administration will unveil a campaign to get Congress to toughen existing laws.
On July 17th, 2009, I wrote a message to our congress with the pertinent portion being this:
DID YOU REALLY THINK WE WERE GOING TO ALLOW YOU TO DESTROY OUR CONSTITUTION AND COUNTRY?
Did you really think we were going to allow you to DESTROY our economy, our small businesses, and our wealth so that you could become yet even richer while demoralizing us so that we would accept being part of the “global government”? Did you think that upwards of 3 dozen czars and counting would go by UNNOTICED because we are still watching our flat screens and shopping at Target? Did you think we were going to allow you to bankrupt this country with Obama DeathCare and Cap and TAX? Did you think we were going to allow The Fed to continue to create bubbles and then pop them so that their shareholders could continue to feed at the trough of OUR WEALTH? Did you think we were going to continue to allow you to send Trillions of our hard earned money to foreign countries?
Did you really think all of that was going to happen without so much as a whimper?
ARE YOU CRAZY?
WE ARE COMING FOR YOU, and no matter how long it takes, no matter how much more wealth we have to lose to change the course of this train wreck, no matter what we have to do to achieve our goals, WE ARE AWAKE AND WE ARE TAKING OUR COUNTRY BACK!
Here is the new message for the House and Senate.
Go Along With This pResident On Gun Control And The Line In The Sand Will Be Drawn!
Slaves don’t own anything; their own bodies, food, housing, property, money, or guns. This government over the course of decades has taken almost everything from us. It is only a matter of time before our pathetic Federal Reserve Notes are worthless, our country is already in hock up to our eyeballs, people have become indentured servants to the federal government through taxation, Americans are losing their homes and property to the banks at a record rate, we are all required to carry IDs at all times, we are required to be corporate owned moos with social security numbers, we are medicated against our will through the water supply, we are molested in the airports and treated like common criminals that are guilty before being railroaded in the justice system. The list goes on and on and on…
That line in the sand?
‘Gun Control‘ or as it should be known, ‘Nudging The Moos Into Surrendering their 2nd Amendment Right’.
Congressmen and Senators?
Once again for the those that have fewer than three gray cells communicating with each other (which is pretty much every single one of you ass-clowns):
Go Along With This pResident On Gun Control And The Line In The Sand Will Be Drawn!
I guarantee that any vigorous debate on any issue will end at that moment.
Obama & Congress’s Continued Assault on The 2nd Amendment – Alex Jones Tv 1/2
Obama & Congress’s Continued Assault on The 2nd Amendment – Alex Jones Tv 2/2
Rep. Peter King (R-NY) wants to make it a crime to carry a weapon within 1000 feet of federal officials at public events. Let’s examine the logic of this idea, (and meanwhile, consider that criminals don’t give a shit about following the law or they wouldn’t be criminals.) The people carrying guns openly at the Gabrielle Giffords event were NOT shooting. A crazy lunatic ran into the crowd. So given the overwhelming fact that crazies run into crowds shooting, disarming the public is the best idea? This kind of thinking breeds a ‘chilling effect’ of people not attending events because they can’t protect themselves. How many of you have stopped flying since TSA has started the ‘grope and scan’ dance?
The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee wants to ban people from carrying weapons within 1,000 feet of federal officials at public events.
Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said he would propose a bill in the coming weeks that would ban the carrying of guns within that range for the president, vice president, members of Congress and federal judges.
In his speech, King said the legislation was not only for the safety of government officials but also to protect the public. He said elected officials are not necessarily more important than the public but by protecting them in this way, the public would feel safer in meeting federal officials at public events.
How ass-backwards is that thinking? Let’s protect the public by disarming them and removing any choice they might have? I know for a fact that when I lived in Arizona, went to my bank, and stood in line with open-carry armed neighbors, I felt SAFER. I have yet to see a sane gun owner go around the bend and murder people, have you?
“The fact is they do represent the people who elect them, and it’s essential if we’re going to continue to have contact that the public who are at these meetings are ensured of their own safety,” King said.
King said the legislation does not contradict views on guns.
“From a conservative perspective, we have to have a stable society, we have to keep crime down,” King said. “You cannot do that if the police cannot be assured that illegal guns are not on the street.
“To have a stable society and a safe society, we have to remove illegal guns,” King continued.
More circle-thinking. How does one remove illegal guns when their is a prohibition on them? Obviously Rep. King doesn’t remember the rise of the criminal element in this country when alcohol was made illegal.
If Mr. King wants illegal guns off the street, and wants the public protected, then he must introduce legislation that requires all Americans to own, be trained, and open-carry a firearm at all times. The Gestapo big government police won’t like it, but that’s just too bad. They’ll just have to get over it.
(Feel like a slave to the federal government YET? Are you broke? Have you lost your home, job, business? The 1st and 2nd Amendments are the last bastions of freedom for sovereigns. Democrats Carolyn McCarthy and Robert Brady want those too.)
“NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE” – Saul Alinsky
I’ve been keeping on eye on the clock since the Giffords shooting to see how long it would take for some form of gun control legislation (that was probably written by a left wing think tank) to be introduced. What did it take; 26 hours? And all because of a liberal leftwing moonbat with no sense of personal responsibility decided it was a constructive idea to gun down a bunch of people to prove whatever delusional point he was suffering from, (or was he a liberal leftwing moonbat?).
How about we have gun control for registered democrats and any other granola eating moonbat, and just leave everybody else alone. Better yet, let’s move all the kumbaya leftists and democrats to Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Massachusetts and let them fend for themselves. We would only need a few states as more and more Americans open their eyes and ears, do the math, and flee the Democratic party and blue states.
One of the fiercest gun-control advocates in Congress, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), pounced on the shooting massacre in Tucson Sunday, promising to introduce legislation as soon as Monday targeting the high-capacity ammunition the gunman used.
“My staff is working on looking at the different legislation fixes that we might be able to do and we might be able to introduce as early as tomorrow,” McCarthy told POLITICO in a Sunday afternoon phone interview.
Gun control activists cried it was time to reform weapons laws in the United States, almost immediately after a gunman killed six and injured 14 more, including Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, in Arizona on Saturday.
Many said that people with a history of mental instability, like the alleged shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, should not be able to buy a gun — and no one should be able to buy stockpiles of ammunition used by the 22-year-old assailant.
McCarthy said she plans to confer with House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi to see “if we can work something through” in the coming week.
McCarthy’s spokesman confirmed the legislation will target the high-capacity ammunition clips the Arizona gunman allegedly used in the shooting, but neither he or the congresswoman offered any further details.
“Again, we need to look at how this is going to work, to protect people, certainly citizens, and we have to look at what I can pass,” McCarthy said. “I don’t want to give the NRA – excuse the pun – the ammunition to come at me either.”
Pennsylvania Rep. Robert Brady, a Democrat from Philadelphia, told CNN that he also plans to take legislative action. He will introduce a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to use language or symbols that could be seen as threatening or violent against a federal official, including a member of Congress.
Another vocal supporter for gun control, Illinois Rep. Mike Quigley, told POLITICO that he hopes “something good” can come from the Arizona tragedy – perhaps discussion on a new assault weapon ban, sales at gun shows and tracing measures.
And how about Robert Brady’s grand infringement of free speech at it’s best? “A federal crime to use imagery or language intended to threaten or incite violence against a Member of Congress or federal official“, and presidential level protection for the very criminals derailing the country whilst they go about their business turning America into a third world banana republic. Bobby obviously has no clue how many Americans are completely AWAKE AND PRESENT, and how many more are waking up each and every day as they lose everything they have spent their lives working for. Bob also does not understand that the hate speech is coming from his very own political base, the left – NOT conservatives; and yet, we are vocally protesting for their right to speak their minds. Imagine that? Can someone send Judge Napolitano over to Bob’s house to explain the Constitution to him?
Bob; you are a frakkin’ dumbass, a fascist, and you need to find a real job creating something, not controlling something.
Rep. Robert Brady is trying to put new Members and their spouses at ease by introducing legislation that would make it a federal crime to use imagery or language intended to threaten or incite violence against a Member of Congress or federal official.
“The spouses are in an uproar,” the Pennsylvania Democrat told CNN on Sunday. “They are panicking.”
He said he plans to introduce the legislation on the first day the House reconvenes. It would expand protections now afforded to the president to other civil servants.
Brady specifically criticized former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s online “hit list” of Members whom the Republican wanted defeated in 2010. Giffords was on that list, which used crosshairs on a map to identify districts to target during the midterm elections.
Members “are as out there as much as anybody else, and we are trying to criminalize behavior that puts bull’s-eyes over Members of Congress and their districts,” Brady said. “We’re going to make that a federal crime.
“All we’re doing is trying to protect ourselves and protect our staff members,” he continued. “I’m not going to hide or not go to my events or public events just because of this incident.”
I dragged this out of the vault for all those lefties that still don’t understand the true spirit of the 2nd Amendment, and why every American should be required to own a gun.
A group of progressive police chiefs are meeting with Eric Holder about Arizona’s immigration law. FoxNews read the entire press release which led to pertinent information that includes amnesty and pro-gun control stances.
This ever creeping insanity is what happens when a population allows infringement of their 2nd Amendment rights AND corrupt politicians to continue to be employed while stuck on stupid. I swear we are living inside ‘Brazil’ right now.
Two state representatives called on Gov. Pat Quinn Sunday to deploy the Illinois National Guard to safeguard Chicago‘s streets.
Chicago Democrats John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford said they want Quinn, Mayor Richard Daley andChicago Police Supt. Jody Weis to allow guardsmen to patrol streets and help quell violence. Weis said he did not support the idea because the military and police operate under different rules.
“Is this a drastic call to action? Of course it is,” Fritchey said. “Is it warranted when we are losing residents to gun violence at such an alarming rate? Without question. We are not talking about rolling tanks down the street or having armed guards on each corner.”
The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it will decide whether the right to own guns for self-defense, announced by the court last year when it struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on handguns, also covers states and other cities with gun-control laws.
The landmark decision in Heller v. District of Columbia did not address the question of whether the Second Amendment extends beyond the federal government and federal enclaves like the District.
The case the court accepted Wednesday concerns the city of Chicago, which bans most handguns.
In the Heller case, the court held for the first time that individuals have a right to gun ownership. Until then, the court had only recognized that the constitutional “right to keep and bear arms” protected a state’s ability to maintain a militia.
Other court precedents have held that the Second Amendment restricts only federal law, as was the case with most of the Bill of Rights. Through the years, the court has applied most of the amendments, but not all, to the states, a process called “incorporation.” The Heller decision specifically left the question about the Second Amendment for another day.
Alan Gura, the Alexandria lawyer who successfully challenged the District’s law, sued the city of Chicago, which has a handgun ban virtually identical to Washington’s, plus other restrictions. Ruling in that case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit said only the Supreme Court can decide whether the Second Amendment applies.
“Even if the Court were to hold the Second Amendment applicable to states and localities,” he said, “such a ruling is unlikely to change the crucial holding by the Supreme Court in Heller that a wide range of reasonable gun laws are presumptively constitutional, and that the Second Amendment right is narrowly limited to guns in the home for self-defense.”
The door is about to be opened to the loss of more states and individuals’ rights.
