California: The Stealth War Expands: Live Free or Die!

August 11, 2014

From the very beginning the “Stealth War” has been a broad-based endeavor designed to restore the Constitution to its rightful place as the final rule of law in America. Gun rights have been at the forefront of this war due to the accelerated effort of gun control advocates to take firearms out of the hands of ordinary citizens. But the War is much broader than that. Patriots are fighting for their very lives in an effort to save all of the individual rights protected by the Constitution.

Thus, the Stealth War is about much more than gun rights. It is about free speech, free religious expression, a free press, and the freedom of citizens to assemble with fellow citizens, particularly as it relates to banding together to protest the actions of a rogue federal government. Similarly, another front of this war is the restoration of the necessity of law enforcement to obtain warrants before bursting through the doors of citizens in the middle of the night with their guns drawn. This government has sought to throw out the necessity of warrants. They don’t even think that you must be suspected of committing crimes. Thus, Constitutional rights have been trampled upon in a variety of areas. The Stealth War seeks to restore them all.

And this brings us to yet a new front in this endeavor of patriots to insure that government obeys the law and protects the rights of citizens. The issue here is ammunition. In places such as California, efforts are underway by Democrats, “progressives,” and other totalitarians to restrict the ability of citizens to purchase ammunition. This comes on the heels of their announced intention of restricting the gun rights of citizens. When the progressive leviathans became convinced that gun bans would not work due to massive civil disobedience, they set their sights on the ammunition that is needed to exercise gun rights.

California, thus, is taking direct aim at ammo. The collectivists who run the state now wish to force citizens to get a permit to buy ammunition. If for any reason the state decides you are not worthy of having the freedom to buy bullets, then you are prevented from exercising your Second Amendment rights, no matter how many guns you own.

Perhaps the California collectivists have not heard that patriots can make their own ammunition. If ammo is banned, or if government makes it nearly impossible to purchase ammo, citizens in the liberty movement will make their own ammo on a widespread basis. Many have been doing this for several years now in anticipation of the worst case scenario in which government outlaws the right of citizens to buy ammo. As with the guns themselves, enough Americans can make their own ammo that their activity in this regard will create the largest black market in the history of the world. Americans have demonstrated in the past that they will disobey any law that encroaches on their Constitutional rights by taking it underground. Reference the era of Prohibition. Despite the government’s laws, citizens found a thousand and one ways to make, transport, sell, and buy alcohol.

The bottom line is that citizens are poised and ready to make their own guns and ammunition. No law will stop us. Why? Because any such law is illegal in a free society. We have no intention of obeying illegal laws.

And if for some reason it becomes impossible for citizens in certain states to engage in these activities, smuggling will be used to make sure they get the guns and ammo they need. Smuggling has already occurred in states that have recently passed restrictive gun control laws as an overreaction to the Sandy Hook shooting. Patriots can easily smuggle ammunition into states where collectivist leviathans have made it hard on liberty oriented citizens. If the states continue to encroach on these liberties, the smuggling will only become more widespread and intensified.

Obama and the Democrats who enable him have already shown that they have no hesitation to disregard the law and trash the Constitution in order to advance their illegal agenda. Regardless of the midterm elections this year, the most dangerous president in U.S. history still has two more years in office. Thus, citizens must get set to kick up the Stealth War into high gear if necessary. And the necessity of doing so grows by the day.

Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are showing signs they have the President’s back.

January 26, 2014

A little over a week ago, President Barack Obama proposed even more Executive Actions on gun control.

Now, Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are showing signs they have the President’s back
.

That’s because they’re pushing a brand new anti-gun bill.

It’s the “Graham-Cornyn Seek Help, Lose Your Guns Act.”

Insiders warn their new bill could be aimed at expanding the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system to include hundreds of thousands — or millions — of law-abiding citizens under the ruse of “mental health.”

Make no mistake . . .

. . . The President’s agenda has nothing to do with mental health, or keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals.

It has everything to do with labeling YOU mentally ill in order to strip you of your right to keep and bear arms without due process.

The goal is simple: seek treatment and lose your gun rights.

So why do Senators Cornyn and Graham have Obama’s Back?

It’s simple.  Let me explain . . .

Senators Cornyn and Graham are feeling the heat from the radical anti-gun left.

Instead of standing firm for your Second Amendment rights, they’re desperate to appear “sensible” and “open to compromise” even if it means putting you and I at risk.

But they’re really playing right into the President’s hands.

Last year, the duo sponsored S.480 — the so-called “NICS Reporting Improvement Act.”

Under that Graham-Cornyn bill, virtually any “board, commission, or other adjudicative body” would have the ability to strip you of your gun rights.

One of these so-called “authorities” could order an otherwise law-abiding individual to see a mental health counselor and strip them their gun rights for good.

Let me put it another way:

If your condition is “severe” enough that an hour of outpatient treatment a week is all you need — you could become a “prohibited person” at the whim of some anti-gun bureaucrat.

That’s not due process!

The Graham-Cornyn bill will further erode your Second Amendment rights and strip the due process rights of law-abiding Americans.

Click here to Stop the Cornyn-Graham Seek Help, Lose Your Gun Act

This isn’t about being violent or unstable; this is about losing your rights because of something as simple as a stress-induced visit to a therapist.

According to the National Institute of Health, nearly half of all Americans will suffer from a “mental health” issue at some point in their life.

And the simple fact is the gun-grabbers know this.

The Obama Administration has been pushing for these gun control expansions in the name of “mental health” for some time.

It’s clear they will do anything to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding Americans.

Even if it means harming the rights of thousands — or  millions — of law-abiding, vulnerable and non-violent individuals.

Over 175,000 veterans have already lost their gun rights, simply by seeking treatment.

But that’s not the worst part.

They aren’t even required to give you a trial.

That’s because “adjudication” no longer means “by a court of law.”

It now includes “other lawful authorities,” which could include ANY mental health professional in connection with a government program.

Are Senators Cornyn and Graham trying to strip away the gun rights of millions of Americans?

I hope not.

But that’s exactly what insiders are warning that Senators Cornyn and Graham could be doing with their latest proposal.

That’s why I need you to contact Senators Cornyn and Graham IMMEDIATELY.

Tell them not to endanger the gun rights of millions of Americans.

Insist they stop pushing the “Graham-Cornyn Seek Help, Lose Your Guns Act.”

*** You can reach Senator Cornyn at (202) 224-2934.

*** And Senator Graham at (202) 224-5972.

Please let the Senators know how important this issue is and that you will be counting on them to stand up for gun owners.

There’s no time to waste.  Please act now.

For Freedom,

Signature
Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

Much to be Thankful for This Thanksgiving

November 27, 2013

“We may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks….” — President George Washington, October 3, 1789

This year, gun owners have been in the fight of our lives.

The President of the United States used all his power and ability in a fierce attempt to ram gun control down the throats of the American people.

The media relentlessly supported his cause, repeatedly telling Americans that the Sandy Hook shooting last December had changed everything … that the “tide had turned” … and that Americans were now in favor of more gun control.

At points during the battle, many gun owners may have felt like their forefathers of old who suffered at Valley Forge — disheartened, ill-equipped and facing a much larger enemy.

But, as is often the case, the victory does not go to the loudest.  And to date, the President has been frustrated beyond belief in his attempts to eviscerate the Second Amendment.

As recently as Sunday, MSNBC weepingly pronounced the death of gun control for the 113th Congress.

Your support has made a tremendous difference in this fight this year!

In 1789, President George Washington recognized from whence their Ultimate Help had come in defeating the British, in establishing a Constitution, and realizing the tremendous liberty they were then enjoying.

We should do no less this Thanksgiving, as we consider the monumental opposition that we have overcome in defending the Second Amendment.

Not only that, we want to thank you for all your hard work.

And thank you for all your support, which has kept GOA on the front lines!

As members of GOA’s grassroots network, you have fought alongside us every step of the way.  And the results have been astounding.

Consider what the anti-gun Left had to say about GOA’s involvement this year:

* “Democrats blame ‘Gun Owners of America’ for gun control setback” — TPM, April 8, 2013.

* “[GOA] pushes the NRA [to the right] and makes it hard for the NRA to be reasonable.” — Senator Harry Reid, April 6, 2013

* “Gun Owners of America was the most active outside group in early efforts to block all gun control efforts.” — The Examiner, April 28, 2013

* “Upstart group [GOA] pushes harder than the NRA” — New York Times, April 3, 2013.

Your support has ticked off the media this year!

It was the New York Times that lamented how GOA was “successful [in] freezing senators, particularly Republicans” from supporting gun controls like expanded background checks.

Bottom line:  Gun owners were able to defeat every word of gun control that came down the pike — and it was thanks to gun owners like you who send us to Washington to lobby on your behalf.

Thank you for helping support us on the front lines this year!

Our successful fight to kill the Feinstein semi-auto ban … to prevent limits on magazine capacity … to defeat attempts at banning private sales of firearms … were all just the tip of the iceberg.

And while our victories from earlier this year were welcome news, we must recognize the battle is not over.

Senator Harry Reid wants to pack the courts with liberal judges who will gut the Second Amendment and uphold ObamaCare — to the detriment of gun owners nationwide.

And the President is just one well-publicized shooting away from re-launching his failed gun control agenda.

Next month, you can be sure that the media will try to jumpstart the gun control issue as it memorializes the tragic Sandy Hook shooting.

But GOA will not be silent.  You can find us on the webon Facebook … and on InstaGram.

We will be rallying the troops to keep the heat on Congress.  And we hope that, as Christmas approaches, you will consider gifting a GOA membership to your family and friends, so that we will increase our voice in Washington.

We need you — and them — in the fight!

Finally, as promised in an earlier alert, here are a couple of interviews that GOA has done recently — interviews we think you’ll enjoy:

From all of us here at Gun Owners of America:  Have a blessed Thanksgiving this Thursday!

Chief Kozak… We sir, are not the ones that are stuck on stupid!

November 2, 2013

 

Chief Kozak wants you to believe that despite his years of experience in police work, he was unable to “connect the dots” that the ADL is an east coast anti-gun lobbying group.  Ah huh…

Of course Kozak started running for cover with his first public statement — that our alert about his scheduled ADL training was “bogus”.

His next move was criminal in nature. Kozak deleted all evidence from the Cheyenne PD webpage listing the actual ADL event – See a screen-shot of the web-page here. You can also see the event flyer that was linked on the deleted page here.

But after getting even more of your phone calls Chief Kozak attempted to back peddle again, now claiming that even though this training is led by the ADL, it’s about “hate crimes” and it had nothing to do with gun control.

By now it was certain that Kozak was going to leverage his position as Chief of police to carry on this event by this known anti-gun organization the ADL, even though as he said himself, “he was getting a ton of calls.”

As we already know, the “hate crime agenda” is the progressive lie of the century.

Just look at what the ADL said about the Zimmerman verdict in Florida:

“This case raises serious questions about the wisdom of stand-your-ground laws and the easy access to concealed weapons permits in states like Florida, where more than one million permits have been issued since 1987 when the state’s concealed weapons law went into effect. Had neither been in place, this tragedy may never have occurred.”

In the same statement the ADL then played the ‘race’ card to further denigrate the Jury decision:

“Hopefully, the debate concerning the justice of the verdict in the Zimmerman case will inspire a continued much-needed discussion about the lingering impact of racism in society.”

So according to an official statement from the ADL, if there wasn’t a law to protect citizens from having to retreat from dangerous criminals, and that if Florida had never allowed concealed carry starting in 1987, the Zimmerman/Martin case would have never happened, and that we need to keep up the discussion on racist gun owners in America.

By now the gun-free-utopia model as embedded in the ADL’s hate philosophy is coming across loud and clear
!

The ADL’s  gun control propaganda is so bizarre, that you just can’t make this kind of stuff up…ADL Director Abraham Foxman says that the use of Adolph Hilter as an analogy against gun control is wrong and offensive to Jews.

This radical-progressive lobbying group that the Cheyenne Police Chief Brian Kozak has partnered with, fundamentally believes that anyone who adheres to the premise enshrined in the Second Amendment, that a armed society is the primary safe-guard against Tyranny, is to be suspected as being a criminal.

The ADL has stated that they have held these “Right Wing Extremist” trainings for the FBI, DHS, ICE, FEMA and many other agencies. One has to wonder if the ADL was involved in the FEMA training where America’s Founders where labeled as the nation’s first terrorists. See the FEMA video here.

Chief Kozak also wants you to believe that his testimony during the last legislative session where he helped to squash was somehow in his job description. HB-103 was legislation that’s sole purpose was to protect the rights of the citizens to keep and bear arms from the over reach of city officials.

I was standing there with — 50 plus pro-gun advocates – while witnessing Chief Kozak acting as the gun-control lobby to the state legislature
.

The good news…is that many “Rank and File” police officers responded positively to our presence and to our knowledge of the ADL’s liberal-progressive agenda. These same officers had no idea that the ADL was in support of Obama and his policies.

WyGO Director Anthony Bouchard and WyGO/JPFO member Howard Last greeting police officer with a pro-gun message at the “Right Wing Extremist” police training event in Cheyenne

A Cheyenne WyGO member who is also a JPFO member lended a hand passing out JPFO pro-gun literature.

In case you didn’t catch this, the ADL is a “progressive” Jewish anti-gun organization — so it was fitting to distribute literature from the renowned pro-gun Jewish organization the JPFO – Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. Much thanks to JPFO for providing the materials on such short notice.

Kozak should have a look at this JPFO video called — “No Guns for Jews”, as it exposes the danger to a disarmed populous in the face of a Tyrant and Psychopath like Adolph Hilter.

While I believe Chief Kozak may never see the light, there is always hope that one day he may take the oath he swore to defend the Constitution seriously.

But knowing that this isn’t very likely, WyGO will be watching Chief Kozak very closely.

To Liberty,

Anthony Bouchard

Exposing the lies of the Far Left

June 6, 2013
“According to conservative staffers [on Capitol Hill], Gun Owners of America was the most active outside group in early efforts to block all gun control efforts including Toomey-Manchin.” — The Examiner, April 28, 2013
Your GOA has been on the front lines, fighting for your rights.
While the news media has been focusing on several Obama Administration scandals in recent weeks — and rightfully so — don’t for a minute think that efforts to pass gun control in the Senate have died down.
They haven’t.  The truth is that Representatives Pat Toomey (R-PA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) are still at work — still trying to pull Senators over to their anti-gun side.
Sen. Toomey told the Philadelphia Inquirer recently that he is looking “to bring some more folks on board” — and that if successful, “then of course it would be worth bringing [gun control] up again.”
Both he and Manchin are still at it, trying to twist arms and coerce people over to his side.
Congress is just finishing up its Memorial Day break, so you are encouraged to resume contacting them now that they will soon be getting back to work.  Let them know your approval (or disapproval) of their recent votes in the U.S. Senate.
To this end, GOA has just updated its website to give you the ammunition you need to hold your Senators accountable:
1) Senators’ grades, which include the gun control votes from April.
2) Senators’ votes on the recent gun control provisions.
NOTE:  In regard to the Senate voting records, you can click on the title of each vote to read an explanation of each vote.  And regarding the grades that are posted, you will note that the following Senators saw their grades drop as a result of their recent votes IN FAVOR of gun control:
Jeff Flake (R-AZ)
Saxby Chambliss (R-GA)
Johnny Isakson (R-GA)
Joe Donnelly (D-IN)
Roger Wicker (R-MS)
Dean Heller (R-NV)
Martin Heinrich (D-NM)
Richard Burr (R-NC)
Tom Coburn (R-OK)
Pat Toomey (R-PA)
Joe Manchin (D-WV)
Gun Owners of America has continued to expose the gun grabbers’ lies, and we have continued to lobby House and Senate offices in opposition to gun control.
Your continued support helps keep us in the fight.
And every new person you encourage to sign up for our free email alerts or for a GOA membership gives us a louder voice on Capital Hill.
As noted by the Examiner (above), your GOA was the most active group in blocking gun control.  But that was only possible because of your loud voice backing us up.
As stated by Slate in April:  “While [GOA’s] bank account is relatively paltry … its members often get Tea Party loud, inundating lawmakers’ offices with calls.”
That’s a testimony to your hard work!
So please encourage your pro-gun friends and family to sign up for our alerts at:  http://capwiz.com/gunowners/mlm/signup

No More “Mr. Nice Guy” It’s time for Congressmen to get off the pot

April 5, 2013

GOA has been issuing multiple alerts recently because of the imminent danger that is facing us – as the Senate will soon be taking up gun control legislation.

Much of the focus has been on the Senate. But if anyone thinks that the House – and specifically Speaker John Boehner – is our fail-safe to killing gun control in the Congress, they had better think again.

Speaking on Meet the Press on March 10, Speaker Boehner said that he has “made clear if the Senate acts on gun control legislation, the House will consider it.”

Quite simply, that means that House Speaker John Boehner will allow the House to consider votes on gun control legislation.

Not only that, in an article entitled “House GOP Leaders: We can pass gun control, immigration, without Republican support,” Breitbart.com reported that on issues like guns, Speaker Boehner was open to “taking rogue Republicans across the aisle to work with Democrats.” The House leadership quickly backtracked from this position once the Breitbart article was published.

Regardless, this just underscores how we can’t forget about the House, and how we need to keep the pressure on congressmen – especially the Republicans.

Sadly, at a time when the House leadership announces that they support universal gun registry legislation – only to quickly backtrack – we get nothing but excuses, excuses, excuses about why many GOP congressmen have not signed onto the Stockman-Broun letter.

Representatives Steve Stockman (R-TX) and Paul Broun (R-GA) are doing a bang-up job in the House. They are two of the most active leaders working to defeat gun control in Congress.

And to that end, the Stockman-Broun letter uses precedent to call upon Speaker Boehner to reject all gun control legislation unless it has the support of 117 Republicans. This is called the “Hastert Rule.” And, if Boehner follows it, virtually no gun control can come to the floor of the House. Virtually none.

So far, more than 25 pro-gun Representatives have signed onto the Stockman-Broun letter – and they should be thanked. But there should be lots more.

It’s very frustrating, however, when we have asked pro-gun Congressmen to sign onto the Stockman-Broun letter to tell Speaker Boehner NOT to bring up gun control, but we hear all kinds of excuses as to why they can’t.

Here are the types of excuses that GOA is getting as to why congressmen won’t sign onto the letter, and our answers to their lame excuses:

  • EXCUSE #1: One office said it had signed other gun control letters.
    ANSWER: There’s no quota on your support for the Second Amendment.
  • EXCUSE #2: Another office said they were afraid of Boehner’s wrath.
    ANSWER: You may want to consider your constituents’ wrath instead.
  • EXCUSE #3: A third office said that gun control was never coming to the House.
    ANSWER: Are you going to do nothing until the anvil actually falls on your head? Boehner has publicly stated that Senate-passed gun control would be “considered” by the House.
  • EXCUSE #4: A fourth office said the congressman had promised to be bipartisan.
    ANSWER: Obama’s ruthless pursuit of his political goals, at the same time he mouthed words of “bipartisanship” is the reason why he controls the White House and you don’t.
  • EXCUSE #5: A few offices have said they fear this letter is challenging Boehner’s authority.
    ANSWER: The Stockman-Broun letter does nothing of the sort. It simply asks the Speaker to follow a rule that was established by a former Republican Speaker of the House. No sanctions are stated or implied – it is only a request asking the Speaker to use the Hastert Rule to kill gun control.

Click here to see the list of Republican congressmen who SHOULD BE on the Stockman-Broun letter, but are not.

ACTION: If your congressman has NOT cosigned the Stockman-Broun letter, then please contact him or her immediately. You may click here to send them a prewritten email. Demand that your Representative sign the letter invoking the Hastert Rule to kill gun control in the House.

 

2nd amendment and what is comming and why: Guest Commentary

April 2, 2013

This is from a member of a forum that is not usually considered to be a political website. Posted with permission. Edited to fit the format here at WordPress. Hat tip to the vampiresmurfhunter.

 A lot of us don’t know whats going on behind the closed doors of the people that are attacking the 2nd amendment. I said after newton that the firearms debate would be forever changed as the anti firearms people would use that tragedy to push for new laws, and they have. What is not really well known is where these new laws are really going, snippets are getting out, but never covered in the media. What is covered is unfortunately the same line of BS that has been used since this president was elected again, a common sense approach. The problem is that common sense approach is new laws that will do nothing to stop or prevent any crime and they have even admitted to it, in one state down south a city councilmen is pushing through expanded background checks, he admitted that they will do nothing to stop crime, so then the Question becomes, why pass something that will not do anything to fix the problem? The answer is, because that is not what they are trying to do at all. So another Question, what are they trying to do?? Well here we go, Ill explain it below.
  Here is the 3 main anti firearms laws, anti 2nd amendment laws they are trying to pass.
  1. Extended background checks. What this is about is anytime a firearm is transferred from one person to another you have to call and have a background check done, even if youre loaning the firearm to a buddy to hit the range with, if you give your child or a wife a firearm, or if you leave it to someone in a will, it all have to go through the nics background check. What is really funny about this is, the government has already said many times over that the background check system is so messed up and not up to date, that it is almost totally ineffective.
  2. Hi capacity magazines, or anything over 15rnds, 10rnds, or even 7rnds. Why and what is this about? This is all about 3, and of course saving the children from another massacre. Seems to me when a psycho does one of these horrific rampages they have plenty of magazines and plenty of ammo, so there basically prepared. So making a person carry more magazines will not solve this problem, and if you have spent anytime shooting a semi auto then you should be proficient enough to change a magazine without an extended amount of time before you are ready to rock and roll again. These anti firearms people would like the world to believe that the time it takes to make a magazine change is all the time people need to bum rush the person that just unloaded a firearm before he can reload, like we all have superhuman speed while we are ducking for cover and trying to make sure our loved ones are not injured. Yes, that’s the answer, while hes reloading, we will grab our scissors or a stapler and bum rush the guy with the guns, yeup that’s the smart thing to do. Ahh, we all should know that’s a stupid thing to do, youd probably wind up dead doing that, but in some cases it could work, but I would rather shoot back at the person then rush them with my trusty stapler at my side, but if someone ever did subdue someone with a stapler they would want to ban those next as it would then be a proven weapon. This magazine ban is all about control, limiting law abiding Americans from the same equipment that the police have, to make sure that WE THE PEOPLE cannot stand toe to toe with their firepower. 2 comments I can remember being said after NY passed their new firearms laws where these, I would prefer the people had less rounds to shoot, something less then a single shot muzzle loader, but people would say we were taking there guns then. The 2nd comment was made by another NY official that was part of drafting the new laws,,, the original draft of the new laws we passed was for us to have everyone register every firearm they had at home, then after we had our list was to go door to door and confiscate all the firearms, magazines and ammo from everyone in the city. He said in the same interview that was the first draft, but realizing that the people of NY would not go for that, they had to scale it down and slowly work towards that goal, we are not done yet, but this is a stepping stone towards total confiscation of guns in NY and the country. So you can see where the magazine ban was just the first step, they are currently trying to pass a bill to limit the amount of ammo a person can have in their home, and how they are going to go door to door to all registered gun owners to inspect the house and check on how much ammo is present.
 
  3. Assault weapons ban. What this is really about and what it covers in the ban. I have actually posted on this before, Sen. Feinstien, I really hope I spelt her name wrong, I have no respect for her at all, lol. We have tried her assault weapons ban before, it did nothing to curb crime, crime sprees or any mass shootings. The way the law that she continues to push is written is interesting in ways that most people that are not firearms owners, or a person that keeps up on the laws can really grasp or understand, it is so broad that it encompasses just about everything dealing with a firearm. Now there is a lot to say about this, so I am going to try to break it down into a lot of different areas, so make yourself comfortable this will take a bit.
  The assault weapons ban that did pass and has expired was proven to do nothing, but if you ask any anti firearms person about it they will deflect the conversation away from the real information, the real statistics about the number of crimes that really did occur before the ban and during the ban. Why? Because they cannot stand on the real numbers, so they use ones that never existed in fact, but that were projected to happen about 40 years before the assault weapons ban ever existed. The ban did exactly nothing that they sold it on, that is why it was left to expire, probably the one biggest and greatest thing any politicians ever did with a law. It did not turn into a monster that usually happens anytime a law is passed, it failed and they did the right thing for once, they let it die.
  The new assault weapons ban bill. Again this is a Sen. Fienstien idea, right out of her delusional head. This thing is a monster, and the definitions involved in it are so encompassing that it boggles the mind, its hard to find one place to start to attack it because all the parts of it are linked together and it gives peoples headaches trying to explain it, namely me, lol. So lets start with the so called assault rifles, and why sen fienstien is so important. She has drafted what will probably be the definitive ban and all out grab of all firearms, she has stated more than once that her bill is just the start, we have to register all the firearms so we know where to go get them from. So why was that important to the rifle part? the old ban was mainly a twofold situation, one for money, for the tax stamp for a fully auto rifle or pistol, and the second part was the extensive background check and registration of every fully auto firearm in the country. Before this ban was implemented the government had only guesses as to how many there really was, after it was instituted they knew exactly how many law abiding Americans had and who had them. It didn’t really ban anything, but it put a lot of people out of range of buying one, and counted and told them where they were, it was registration in its purest form. It did ban a few things as far as accessories on the firearms themselves. Folding stocks, bayonet lugs, in all just minor things to see how far they could push before we get pissed and say outright NO. this new bill of hers bans everything to do with the furniture of the rifle, iron sites is about all you can have. No scopes, ho holographic sites, so flip up sites, no more rails on the fore end, no folding stocks, no collapsible stocks, somewhere part of the original ban, some of these are add ons for this new bill that the outrage from the newton shooting they think they can get in this time around. Who cares about the furniture on the rifle? Well this then gets into any rifle I’m sure many of you have in the safe or on the wall. Well take a look at what you got and see if you have anything other than iron sites on it, if you do then it would be illegal with the new bill. Certain rifles have been added to the bill by name, make and model; they got really specific about what they were banning in some areas. What are they banning? Scary looking rifles. No really, it’s scary looking rifles. It has nothing to do with what the rifles do, there action, what caliber they shoot, some are actually single shot, it is all about appearance and if it looks scary. Some like the AR family of rifles are on the list because they look like military rifles that are the main reason they give in public. Behind closed doors they have admitted they do not want anyone to own or posses any rifle that the military has or looks like a rifle the military has. So for you hunters out there that use anything in the AR family, it doesn’t matter what caliber it is, what you hunt with it, it is on the list. It was probably on the list already because of the furniture you have on it. Ok the next part of the rifle ban, you got anything that’s in .223? well that is illegal under the bill as well. Now there is a few exceptions to that, a single shot breach loader, or a box magazine that holds 5rnds or less, it might be 4rnds or less. I haven’t heard much on this part other then firearms manufactures are trying to figure out a way to redesign the box mags to meet this part of the law. For those with a magazine well inside the stock, your rifle would be illegal and there is nothing you can do about it except turn it in. again your rifle would probably be illegal anyways because you would have a scope on it. Start to see why this is so mind boggling to try to explain the frigging complexity of this bill? Lol. One of my favorites of this bill was muzzle loaders, a few of them were put on the list of banned firearms. Why? Because some are 50cal, yup just because of their caliber.
 

Ok now for the important part of this, now that you know all of your rifles would be illegal under the assault weapons amendment to this package of crap there trying to pass. The assault weapons part was dropped from the main part of the new guns laws they are trying to pass because they felt it would hurt them from getting enhanced background checks and the hi capacity magazines ban passed. They have said they don’t have the votes to pass it as part of the main bill, so they will add it as an amendment. That means they will put everything they have at the first 2 and get them passed hell or high water. We cannot allow any enhanced background checks, and we cannot allow a hi capacity magazine ban. Joe biden just said it the other day in a speech, this is just the beginning. In other words, they are going to keep adding, we gave an inch and they will take a mile behind closed doors. This amendment they will have to vote on, they know it will fail, but they want to see who’s on their side, who is right on the edge of voting for it, who will not vote for it because there about to face an election year, and who will vote for it knowing they have an election coming up they may lose. Their testing the waters to see who’s on their side.
  Ok the handgun part; I love this part because it is pretty simple. You can do nothing to change a pistol from the factory; it has to be factory original. Absolutely nothing the military uses can be on the pistol, you cannot change the recoil spring, cannot change the grips, cannot put on night sites, cannot put on a flash light, no trigger jobs (same for rifles too), no hi cap mags, if it originally came with double stack mags you have to get single stacks for it, they added a special part to the bill after seeing a YouTube video, so no race springs, no race holsters. See how ridiculous this is getting. Funny thing here, they outlawed the 50cal rnd for rifles, but it also applies to handguns too because the person that wrote that part didn’t know that you don’t shoot a 50bmg from a pistol, so as the law stands, no 50cal pistol. Heres a funnier part, they recognized there error and said, who needs a 50cal pistol? Who do they think they are Arnold Schwarzenegger (Ok I cannot spell his name but they did say his name when rationalizing this part to keep it in). so there rational for no-one having a 50cal handgun was a movie star, nothing to do with hunting bores, hogs, I know some do some big game hunting with pistols, but they don’t matter because a movie star decided this. Well not personally, just his character in movies did. Can you start to see the mentality of the people who are writing this stuff? They don’t know what they’re talking about, they just want to save the kids, it’s all for the kids. Remember that line; you will start to see more of it, a lot more of it.
 
  Well ok what does all of this mean? Well it is for our safety, it is for the kids, it is to lower the crime rates, to stop the mass murders, and it is for all those things. So if it is for all of those things? How can every anti firearms person all agree that this will do nothing to lower crime rates or make anyone safer? See they all say we have to do these things now, if it just saves one child, or stops just one mass murder spree, anything, but we must do something. They know what they are doing, it is why we have the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights, the 2nd amendment, they can’t get around that pesky 2nd amendment thing. I hope some read the post I made a bit back about the history of the 2nd amendment and why our forefathers put it in our Constitution. At the end of the day all of these laws lead and only lead to confiscation, they have said so many times. You have to listen to what they say and how they say it. They have changed the words, the definitions, and how they say things as they need to, they need to always make it bad, to confuse the general public about what they are talking about. If I’m loosing you here no worries, just follow me for a minute and it will make sense.
  I think the best way of describing this is to think of obamacare, every promise made was an absolute lie, but more than that was the fact that everything said was actually the opposite when it was finally read. The something will happen with the gun debate, you hit them with facts and they ignore you, or say your facts are wrong and only there’s count. We can see the progression of this with the language, first it was hi capacity clips, now they have learned because all of us that know something about firearms were laughing at them because a clip is totally different then a magazine. So now they have changed the terms to say magazines, but it’s hi capacity clips and magazines, I still laugh about that. It was AR type rifles after newton, now to help scare the people; it is military style weapons of war. Some of you may have noticed how the new catch phrase is; weapons of war do not belong on the streets of America. They pull numbers of deaths by firearms almost out of thin air, but when challenged on the real facts of their numbers they run and hide, totally dismiss all the facts about the numbers they use. Here is a little tip on how to always shred the argument that America’s gun violence is the highest or 2nd highest in the world. Break down the number they toss out there, they always use the number of all deaths by firearms. They never break it down by, actidental discharge, murders, gang on gang shootings, rifles, shotguns, hand guns, or police shootings. The last one there is important because it accounts for just about 1/3 to half of shootings. Self defense shootings or justifiable shootings take up another huge part as well. When you break down their own numbers they will always dismiss it, news rarely mentions the actual facts of where the numbers come from or how they are broken down, they need the fear for those that don’t know the facts and refuse to educate themselves about what is going on. For them it is simple, politicians said it is bad, it’s for the kids, these are weapons of war and we don’t need them on our streets, we must act now, we cannot forget about the kids, etc, you will hear these lines more and more as well as the Newton brought up more and more before they vote on this bill.
 

These things are all parts of a larger push to register all firearms, the start of that is the expanded background check, which is the way to find all firearms in the country, it may take a few years, but eventually they will have a complete list, then they can come and take them. Notice the assault weapons bill, I did not want to type all of that, but I had to. I had to tell you all everything that was being defined in that bill, so you can see where the registry begins. Everything you own is in that bill in some way or another, everything will be registered and they will know what you have and where you live. Hi cap mags, that is just another way to take something from us, to show they have control and we are sheep. Bear posted a story we all should read, it is about a man that sent an email to a rep in his state about the 2nd amendment and that states own Constitution, and the laws that would be broken if they passed any gun laws or even voted for them from the federal gov. the reply the man got had nothing to do with the 2nd amendment, and the rep actually threatened the mans life, if you haven’t read that story, you should.
  Lastly and most importantly, gotta tell a story first so you’ll know where I am coming from on this. On 2-23 I went to a pro firearms, pro 2nd amendment rally here where I live. It was supposed to be a warm day so everyone was dressed for basically a day at the park lol. Well it was snowing and cold as all get out and no-one was dressed for that, not even the congressman that showed up to give a speech. After his speech the rally broke up, but the congressman was still there talking to a small group of people, I went and joined that conver and talked to him and the 7-8 others for over an hour, freezing our butts off, hands and fingers were turning blue, it was cold. So whats the point here? He said to send emails to your reps, to call them all, bug them daily with phone calls and emails telling them you support the 2nd amendment and to pass no new firearms laws. He said that phone calls and emails really do matter and in a lot of ways that’s how their offices judge what the people want them to do. So your voice must be heard in those ways, they do matter and it does work. So please, even if you have a pro firearms rep, call them and say thank you, keep up the good work on the 2nd and keeping my rights.

  If nothing else I hope you all learned something about the attacks that are taking place on the 2nd amendment, these are going to be back door deals that you will never hear about on the news, but this is what is coming, the vice pres said it best, there is more to come, this is just the beginning, and if you want to go to jail follow his advice about shotguns for home defense, lol.

This was from a person that is not normally politically active, and if people like that are thinking this way? This nation is in for one hell of a roller coaster ride. One that will be anything but pleasant I might add.

 

 

Support the Paul-Cruz-Lee Filibuster!

April 2, 2013

We are going into a battle which will determine the future of gun control for the next decade – and perhaps for the rest of our lifetime.

Here’s the status: On or around April 8, Harry Reid will move to proceed to S. 649. That “base bill” contains the Veterans Gun Ban, which could send you to prison for 15 years if you sell a gun to a veteran, without realizing he has PTSD. The bill will also contain the Schumer version of Universal Gun Registries.

S. 649 does not have the 60 votes necessary to break a filibuster on final passage. However, if Reid can get the motion to proceed adopted – and get on the bill itself – he will play let’s-make-a-deal and use bribes and kickbacks to buy the 60 votes he needs.

In particular, Reid and Schumer will probably try to prune the universal registry bill to buy off the vote of Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn. They may pretend to prohibit recordkeeping by the FBI, but you can bet their “compromise” will contain a big, juicy loophole.

In addition, they may pare it back to gun shows and internet sales, although the most recent “gun show” bill we have seen would effectively ban gun shows.

The media has been reporting that the NRA leadership is working with West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin to craft these compromises, although NRA vehemently denies it.

As a result of anti-gun rules changes, there are two ways to proceed to a bill in the Senate. One requires 60 votes, which we have. The second requires 50 votes (plus Biden), but requires Reid to give up some of his control of the floor.

The point is this: Our efforts will be tremendously helped if the NRA leadership publicly calls on Senators to oppose the motion to proceed, opposes cloture on the motion to proceed, and scores both votes.

If it does this, the motion to proceed will die. Reid will be unable to move to any gun control legislation. Gun control will die.

We believe that, because of the strength and fervor of our membership, we are very close to winning this battle – but it would be so much easier if we were both singing off the same page.

ACTION: If, you are an NRA member, contact them. Urge them to join with us in supporting the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster. That means they should tell Senators to oppose the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle, and to oppose cloture on the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle.

—– Pre-written letter —–

Dear Mr. LaPierre:

We are going into a battle which will determine the future of gun control for the next decade – and perhaps for the rest of our lifetime.

As you know, Harry Reid will soon move to proceed to S. 649. That “base bill” contains the Veterans Gun Ban, which could send you to prison for 15 years if you sell a gun to a veteran, without realizing he has PTSD. The bill will also contain the Schumer version of Universal Gun Registries.

As you also know, S. 649 does not have the 60 votes necessary to break a filibuster on final passage. However, if Reid can get the motion to proceed adopted – and get on the bill itself – he will play let’s-make-a-deal and use bribes and kickbacks to buy the 60 votes he needs.

In particular, Reid and Schumer will probably try to prune the universal registry bill to buy off the vote of Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn. They may pretend to prohibit recordkeeping by the FBI, but you can bet their “compromise” will contain a big, juicy loophole. In addition, they may pare it back to gun shows and Internet sales, although the most recent “gun show” bill would effectively ban gun shows.

There are reports in the press that you are working with West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin to craft these compromises, although I hope this information is wrong.

As a result of anti-gun rules changes, there are two ways to proceed to a bill in the Senate. One requires 60 votes, which we have. The second requires 50 votes (plus Biden), but requires Reid to give up some of his control of the floor.

The point is this: I hope that you will support the Paul-Cruz-Lee filibuster and tell Senators that the NRA opposes the motion to proceed to S. 649 … opposes cloture on the motion to proceed … and will score both votes.

If you do this, the motion to proceed will die. Reid will be unable to move to any gun control legislation. Gun control will die.

I would therefore ask you to please oppose the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle, and oppose cloture on the motion to proceed to any gun control vehicle, and to score both votes.

Please let me know if you will do this.

Sincerely,

Here is a copy of the letter that I sent;

Please join with the rest of freedom loving organizations and support  the Paul- Cruz- Lee filibuster. No compromises at all, whatsoever. No to any deals of any kind at all. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin needs to be sent walking for even considering any sort of cave in.
No more lifetime bans for less than felony convictions. You caved on that to Lautenberg, and we still remember. No more disarming veterans for serving their nation for life. We remember that. No more failing to support any gun owner for political expediency as you have done more times than I can remember. Grow a pair and get to work! We expect more, a lot more than submissiveness and compromise. Screw the press and anyone else that decides that they know better than we do when it comes to how we live our lives!

Never compromise your most deeply held values. Have faith, have courage. Sua Sponte!

 

Mayor Bloomberg; Birds of a feather..?

March 25, 2013

BELLEVUE, WA – Three more names have been added to a veritable rogue’s gallery of current or former members of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns who have run afoul of the law with Thursday’s criminal charges against Marcus Hook, Pa. Mayor James Schiliro, the Second Amendment Foundation said today.
                                                                         
“Mayor Schiliro is one more example of why we started the ‘Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors’ campaign,” said SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb. “He joins recently-convicted former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, and recently-indicted former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, both of whom were MAIG members.”
SAF launched Gun Owners Against Illegal Mayors last fall, “and the list keeps growing,” said Gottlieb.
“Schiliro’s case is not only bad, but bizarre,” Gottlieb observed. “He’s been charged with false imprisonment, unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, serving alcohol to a minor and other crimes, and he also allegedly used more than one gun in this incident, in which at least one shot was fired.
“The allegations against Schiliro creeped me out,” he said. “With associates like this, I can understand why Bloomberg doesn’t trust people with guns.
“According to published reports,” he continued, “Schiliro’s attorney says the mayor has sold his guns and entered alcoholism treatment, but this doesn’t get any traction with me. If the charges against this guy are proven in court, he deserves to have the book thrown at him, same as Mayor Bloomberg would demand if any other gun owner did what police and prosecutors think Schiliro did.
“It is amusing,” Gottlieb added, “that Schiliro – who signed an infamous letter to the U.S. Senate with 600 other mayors – has suddenly disappeared from the MAIG roster on that group’s website.
“Mayor Bloomberg should be more interested in the conduct of MAIG members than trying to pry into the personal lives of gun owners or soda drinkers,” he stated. “If anybody needs a background check, it would be a MAIG member.”
The Second Amendment Foundation (www.saf.org) is the nation’s oldest and largest tax-exempt education, research, publishing and legal action group focusing on the Constitutional right and heritage to privately own and possess firearms. Founded in 1974, The Foundation has grown to more than 650,000 members and supporters and conducts many programs designed to better inform the public about the consequences of gun control.
