What’s Really Happening: 2nd Amendment

March 30, 2010

I heard a story this morning about a black man, a woman, a gay man, and a wise Latino woman and it got me wondering how the wise Latino woman would be ruling with her associates on the Chicago Gun Case. As I searched for information that did not come I found an article at the NRA-ILA that made me feel a little better.

It told of SB-2099. You know, the old bill that died in committee nearly a decade ago. But at the end was a link to another story that did even more for me. It dispelled several BS stories that I have been hearing. I knew they were BS I just didn’t have the ammo to prove it. Well, here it is.

But, in the course of reading these stories I thought about why I do not belong to the NRA and I can’t think of one good reason. I used to belong and I let it lapse and I haven’t re-upped. These articles made me realize just how much the NRA actually does for me and as soon as I finish here I will be re-upping. As a matter of fact here is the link to join.

I remember the one thing that I wish I had done so many years ago when I belonged and I will be doing that this time as they have made it easier than ever. I will become a lifetime member. Then it was $200.00, now it’s $1,000.00 but they have the Easy Pay Life (EPL) where they bill you quarterly $25.00 until the $1,000.00 is paid in full. No interest. Pretty cool I thought. Quite a deal for an outfit that does as much as the NRA does for our 2nd Amendment right, at least that’s what I thought after reading these articles.

Anyway that’s where I’m headed right now. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

2nd Amendment Still Under Assault

March 17, 2010

The State of Maine gave it a shot. They have legislation, LD1817, on the table that would allow law enforcement to confiscate firearms in domestic violence cases even if there was not even the threat of using the firearm.

A while ago I told you about an article in the American Thinker that mentioned a treaty that Chairman Zero may sign. It’s called the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The National Rifle Association-Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) has an article on that right now that makes me feel much better. According to the NRA-ILA there isn’t even a draft yet and work will continue on it until 2012 when we can ditch Chairman Zero.

Actually it seems like things are going quite well on this front. the guns confiscated in New Orleans can be retrieved by following the instructions at this link. And we can once again carry in National Parks. All in all not too bad.

While this is all good news let’s not forget that H.R.45, H.R.257 and S.1317 are still lingering out there. At any rate let’s sit back and wait for the Supreme Court decision on the Chicago Gun case. And, as always, screw environmentalists.

Chicago Gun Case

March 3, 2010

Oh my! I am ready to pass out. I can’t believe what I am hearing. The Supreme Court has redeemed itself and will once again be capitalized in this blog. There appears to be no part of “shall not be infringed” that they are having trouble understanding. According to an article from the Chicago Tribune most of the Supreme Court Justices are ready to strike down state and local laws infringing on our 2nd Amendment right.

This is music to my ears. The article goes on to lament how this will open up the courts to cases challenging many local laws (YES). With this ruling, Algore and cap-and-trade withering, and Obama less popular than Larry Flint I may not have anything more to write about. I might have to enjoy life again, what a shame. I just wanted to get a quick note out on this. We are still waiting for official word but it looks good for the good guys. Until next time, screw environmentalists.

Gun Grabbing In Texas

January 26, 2010

Well, I wanted to write about the Chicago gun case before the Supreme Court but the only thing I could find is that Los Angeles has joined with Chicago. What a shock. But that’s not even on the docket yet. The case number by the way is 08-1497 for those of you who want to keep track for yourself. The Supreme Court’s web site is http://www.supremecourtus.gov/docket/docket.html . Just enter that case number on the docket search.

What I did run into during the course of my research was an incident in Texas. Apparently the Austin PD and the ATF decided to harass people selling guns in the parking lot at a gun show. Now in Texas this is fine and dandy. No one was breaking any laws but that didn’t detour the troops from doing their best to break it up. For a liberal slant on this from the ABC news affiliate Austin check this and watch the video http://www.infowars.com/texas-media-covers-shut-down-of-gun-show/ .

Now the mouthpiece for the “authorities” claims they are trying to stop the flow of weapons into Mexico which, as we all know, is bunk. And the liberal media tried to paint it as a civil dispute between the property owner and the gun show owner but I didn’t find any statement anywhere from the property owner. Besides which he is legally renting his hall to someone who is doing a legal business, I have never heard of a landlord having a problem with that.

Folks, it all boils down to one thing, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.
