The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and the people’s right to keep and bear arms.

9th Circuit STRIKES AGAIN; Makes Major Gun Ruling

The 9th Circuit Court is at it again, showing that they are, as most of us are well aware, a leftist activist court for which the Constitution means nothing. The nutty ninth overturned the ruling of a lower court which found that a cooling off period after the lawful purchase of a firearm was an infringement on the Second Amendment.

Apparently the 9th Circuit sees the Second Amendment and the pesky Constitution as cumbersome impediments in their crusade to overhaul the United States in their leftist image. Continue reading

WikiLeaks reveals Hillary’s admin discussing which shootings will help her gun control agenda

She's gunnin' for YOURS!

She’s gunnin’ for YOURS!

One of the most frustrating political arguments for libertarians and conservatives is that of the Second Amendment. To any logical person, it should be abundantly clear that there is no reason to infringe on this right in any way, shape or form. Our country was founded on the right to bear arms and we all utilize this right in order to ensure our own safety. Sadly, the Regressive Left has recently waged war on the Second Amendment and it now seems as though they are getting closer and closer to victory.

If there was ever any doubt that the leftists of the ruling class have been trying to disarm us, it should no longer exist in the wake of the recent WikiLeaks email leaks that show just how corrupt and evil those on the left can truly be.

In an email chain released by the whistleblowers, it is revealed that the Clinton campaign was trying to utilize mass shootings to exploit her gun control agenda. During the back-and-forth conversation, Campaign director of engagement De’Ara Balenger wrote, “The only flag here is that Jordan Davis was killed by a white man, so arguably – this crime was racially motivated, which takes this outside the discussion of gun violence. Was there another mother in the Chicago meeting where the shooting was NOT racially motivated? If yes, we should use that story instead of Jordan Davis.”

Student’s Pro-Gun Rights Project Sparks Suspension, Psychological Evaluation Order

ross-Death_of-the_Republic_smallA high school student was suspended and ordered to undergo a psychological exam because he made a video with the message “guns save lives” for a class project, his family says.

The student, Frank Harvey, received an “A” despite the controversy.

“What the response of the school tells me is that I’m allowed to do my schoolwork as long as it agrees with their point of view on an issue,” Harvey told NJ.com, referencing administrators at Manville High School in New Jersey.

Harvey had created a short video that spotlighted examples of people who used guns to defend their homes. The video also showed anti-gun control political cartoons.

“I don’t understand why I’m being disciplined for following the instructions of my teacher and no one else is,” Harvey told NJ.com. Continue reading

Supreme Court Second Amendment Case Could Overrule Heller Decision in 2017

Declarations from Donald Trump and Mike Pence that gun rights are in danger is no longer hypothetical. It is now certain. If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, the Second Amendment can be effectively erased from the U.S. Constitution.

2nd-amendment-supreme-crt-jose-luis-magana-ap-640x480For the first time in U.S. history, a federal appeals court on Friday struck down a federal gun-control law for violating the Second Amendment, meaning that next year the Supreme Court will hear a case that includes the opportunity to abolish citizens’ right to bear arms by overruling the Court’s famous Heller precedent.

Hillary Clinton Interview Betrays Contempt for 2nd Amendment

Hillary_wallaceHer rationalization to Wallace when called out on the matter is nothing more than classic Clintonian attempt to conceal her true beliefs and intentions.

Following her recent interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Hillary Clinton suffered justified ridicule for falsely claiming that FBI Director James Comey declared her private email server explanations truthful.

Unfortunately, what received far too little attention were Clinton’s damning contradictions regarding Americans’ Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

During a fundraiser just last year, Clinton declared unequivocally to a friendly audience, “The Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment.” So quoting her own words, Wallace asked, “In the 2008 Heller case, the Court said there’s a constitutional individual right to bear arms. What’s wrong with that?”

In response, Clinton attempted her trademark routine of word salad obfuscation: Continue reading

My Lazy Glock…

glock_22Today, I placed my Glock .22 pistol on the table right next to my front door. I left its clip beside it, then left it alone and went about my business. While I was gone, the mailman delivered my mail, the neighbor’s son across the street mowed the yard, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few cars stopped at the “stop” sign near the front of my house.

After about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was quietly sitting there, right where I had left it. It had not moved itself outside. It had not killed anyone…  Continue reading

Your Safety In These Interesting Times…

terrorismThe threats we face today are showing themselves more and more. You can assign it to whatever you want; Obamunism, availability of prescription drugs to be abused, unchecked and undiagnosed mental health issues, easy access to guns and trucks, or cats and dogs living together. Whichever…

But there is no doubting that interesting times are upon us. The reality of the threat today versus the fantasy that most want to live in is that there are newly emerging kinds of threats that require a different response than what we would have done not that long ago. Continue reading

Why Judges are Incapable of Ruling on the Second Amendment

Does anyone really believe that the Founders would ever give more power to the government, than rights to the people? Does anyone really believe that the Judiciary has the lawful ability to carve up the Constitution into pieces?

2nd-amendment-cartoonIn planning this article, the murder of police officers in Dallas occurred. I thought of holding off to honor the victims first, but then the Obama Administration immediately began the call for more illegal gun laws, and I realized it was more important than ever to speak out. This one court case highlights everything that our government is doing wrong in terms of our gun rights. Creating more classes of disarmed victims is not going to stop criminals who don’t respect any laws. I hope the information here will serve you in the huge gun debate that is surging through this entire election.

Recently the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that “machine guns are not protected arms under the Second Amendment.” What utter and complete, constitutionally contemptuous, nonsense. All small arms are protected by the Second Amendment. What is not protected, is how you use them. That difference, is key to the whole issue.  Continue reading

Mother Shoots, Kills Intruder Lurking in Child’s Bedroom

And THIS is the reason why – you anti-gun Dummies!

You see – guns provide REAL feminine protection!

guns-n-babesA woman in Portland, Oregon, returned home with her two young children, aged 5 and 10, to find an intruder lurking in one of the children’s bedrooms, according to police. She was armed with a handgun and fired at least one shot and killed the intruder.

Officers went to the woman’s home around 1:45 a.m. Sunday after receiving a report of a homeowner shooting someone inside her home. Police said the 59-year-old intruder was found dead at the scene. Continue reading

The Line is Drawn America!

Warn the Rulers with Resistance!

“You don’t need 30 rounds to hunt! But the 2nd Amendment was not written in case deer turn against us.”

ross_guns-1On June 18th 2016, Barrack Hussein Obama once again proclaimed he would usurp the United States Constitution (1,180 transgressions to date) by pulling out of thin air another illegal and unconstitutional Executive Order in an attempt to further restrict Americans’ (God given) right to bear arms.

The Huffington Post Blogger’s Club feels that things are getting a little too close for their sinful comforts when it reported that the timing of the Orlando attack, combined with the demographic of the alleged victims, the demographic of the alleged gunman, and all the D.C. theatrics since the shooting, dovetail too well with the domestic and geopolitical agendas in Washington.

Howard Stern Defends Gun Ownership after Orlando Attack

“Do You Want a Fighting Chance or Not?”

howard sternRadio host Howard Stern blasted politicians’ and activists’ gun control push in the wake of the terrorist attack in Orlando during an episode of his program this week, pointing out that more gun control will only make attacking innocent people an easier task.

“Do you want a fighting chance or not?” Stern asked during Wednesday’s episode of his popular SiriusXM radio show. He appealed to the metaphor of “sheep,” “sheep dogs,” and “wolves” ­ as set forth in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper explaining that the “sheep” represent the majority of the people, while “sheep dogs” are “the military and police,” and the “wolves” are those that prey upon the “sheep.” Continue reading

The Constitutional Militia: The Defense of the Nation Is the Responsibility of Its People

foundersThanks to the main stream media and anti-gun political agendas, the word militia is likely to have most running in fear. The word brings to mind images of ragtag red-necked racists running around the woods with “machine guns” and swastikas. While there are certainly radical groups out there claiming to be militias, the concept of an organized militia derives its authority from the U.S. Constitution for the purpose of maintaining liberty and defending the nation from hostile invasions. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 15 states that –

“The congress shall have the power to….provide for the calling forth of the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrection and repel invasion.”

Clinton Panders to Party’s Base, Praises Connecticut Gun Ban as a National Model
U.S. Senator and Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton speaks at the 2007 "Take Back America" conference in WashingtonClinton – growing increasingly frayed over the stubborn persistence of her opponent in the Democratic Party primary – took to Connecticut this week to push her gun control message to what she hoped would be willing ears. No surprise, she combined her dual instincts for bad policy and pandering by embracing a 140-page gun control law the state passed in 2013 as a model for national legislation. Her comments echoed those of Barack Obama, who at the time also pushed for similar federal action, claiming, “Connecticut has shown the way . . .” (Continue to full article)

You gotta love compassionate Christian Seniors.

New York Times calls for nationwide gun confiscation from law-abiding Americans

nytIt is now obvious to nearly everyone that the leftist mainstream media is actively working on the same team as ISIS. Not only has this media — the NYT, CNN, WashPost, etc. — deliberately covered up the real threat of ISIS and radical Islam in America; it is now demanding that all Americans be disarmed so that ISIS terrorists will meet no armed citizens whatsoever as they escalate their terrorism and mass murder across America.

CNN, for example, blacked out any mention of the word “Muslim” when covering the breaking news of the San Bernardino shooting. Every leftist media outlet in the nation has demanded the continuation of the absurd national policy of wholly unprotected borders that allow terrorists to easily enter the country. And now the New York Times is directly calling for the nationwide, government-run confiscation of firearms from all Americans. Continue reading

Baldwin: The War Against Our Natural Right Of Self-Defense Continues

Culprits Include The City Of Chicago, Big Retailers, The Media, And Churches

Chicago Gun BanProponents of the Nanny State have been trying to take away man’s Natural right of self-defense ever since the United Nations was created back in 1945. Of course, the Natural right of self-defense is totally unknown in communist and socialist countries; and big-government toadies in several so-called “democratic” countries have also succeeded in turning citizens into subjects by removing or severely restricting the Natural right of self-defense. Obviously, I’m talking about countries such as Great Britain, France, Germany, New Zealand, Australia, and Canada.

By self-defense, I am talking about a man’s right to carry a Personal Defense Weapon (PDW)–which, in modern times, mostly requires a firearm–anywhere and everywhere he goes. A state that does not allow a man to be personally armed in his day-to-day activities is literally stripping him of his right of self-defense. To require a citizen to keep his or her PDW in their home or vehicle is to deny the citizen’s Natural right of self-defense. To say a citizen may lawfully protect himself in only limited and duly-prescribed locations is to make the citizen a subject of the state. Furthermore, it removes from him the most fundamental of all the Natural rights that were granted to him by his Creator: the right of self-defense. Continue reading

BREAKING: H.R. 2959, the Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013

CONCEALEDThe Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2013 (H.R. 2959) has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressmen Richard Nugent (R-Fla.) and Jim Matheson (D-Utah). The bill would allow any person who is not prohibited from possessing or receiving a firearm under federal law and who has a valid, concealed firearm permit to carry a concealed handgun in any state that issues its own residents permits to carry concealed firearms. Persons carrying a handgun in another state pursuant to H.R. 2959 would be subject to the laws of that state with respect to where concealed firearms may be carried. Similar legislation to H.R. 2959 passed the U.S. House of Representatives in 2011 by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 272-154. Continue reading

Gun Control, the Jews, and the Third Reich

chrome_swastikaIn 1996, in commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the modern Olympics, the German government issued a set of four stamps. One of these celebrates Alfred and Gustav Flatow, cousins, who were gold medalists in the 1896 Olympics. Alfred took the first in the parallel bars and with his cousin also won gold for the German team’s overall performance.

In 1932, Alfred Flatow registered three handguns, as decreed by the harsh gun control laws of the Weimar Republic that were drawn amid the violence and chaos of the aftermath of World War I. The Weimar Republican grew out of the ashes of the Great War. Perceived as an institution imposed by Germany’s enemies, Weimar lacked political legitimacy and was vulnerable to insurrection.

Baldwin: Our Friends Are Killing Us

business_as_usual_35There is a prophetic verse of Scripture that records the conquering Messiah as being asked about the wounds that are in his hands. He responds, “Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends.” (Zechariah 13:6 KJV) Indeed. It wasn’t the Romans that were fixated with killing Christ; it was the Lord’s own brethren. “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” (John 1:11 KJV) In like manner, our nation is quickly losing its liberties and Natural rights, not because of our enemies, but because of our so-called friends and brothers.

Edmund Burke summarized it beautifully: “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” And, for the most part, that is what good men are doing today: nothing!  Continue reading

Interpol Secretary proposes new solution to mass shootings, int’l terrorism: ‘Arm civilians’

gunsFollowing last month’s terrorist attack at a Westgate shopping mall in Kenya, which left 72 dead and over 200 people injured, the Secretary General of the Interpol is considering what some may call a “controversial” solution to public safety, international security and terrorist prevention.

What is the Secretary General’s suggestion? Arm law-abiding citizens.

In an interview with ABC News, Secretary General Ronald Noble elaborated on that idea, noting that there are two paths governments can go down to protect “soft targets” or unarmed civilians from terrorists and sociopaths. The first is to move in the direction of a police state with armed guards, security checkpoints, surveillance cameras and metal detectors everywhere. The other is to encourage responsible citizens to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Continue reading

Why Are They Trying So Hard To Demonize Gun Owners?

UN-Gun-Sculpture-Photo-by-Francois-Polito-460x345There is an all-out effort to demonize gun owners in the United States today. Those that own guns are repeatedly portrayed as being uneducated, mentally deficient racists in the mainstream media. No evidence is ever produced to actually back up those claims. Gun owners regularly make lists of “potential terrorists” in official government documents, and many government officials openly regard them as ultra-paranoid “conspiracy nuts” that are a serious threat to national security.

Journal Of American Physicians And Surgeons: Guns Do Not Cause Crime, People Do

bear arms_thumbIn the fall 2013 edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (JPandS), Jane M. Orient, M.D., takes apart the long standing gun control advocate arguments of many medical groups to show that guns do not cause crime, people do.

Orient looks at “advocacy campaigns” for “treating gun violence” that have been sponsored by the American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Physicians (ACP) and says these groups have fashioned gun violence as a “health problem” rather than a “crime problem.” In so doing, they have avoided the real causes of violence and to pursue federal funding for research from an advocacy perspective.

How A Comma Gave Americans The Right To Own Guns

Joshua Lott - Reuters

Joshua Lott – Reuters

A recent poll suggests Americans will consider the gun debate a pivotal point in the 2014 elections. So we wanted to explore how Americans kept the right to bear arms in the first place. As it turns out, grammar is the culprit.

Take a look at the Second Amendment:

“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.”

That little, red comma caused the Supreme Court to strike down D.C.’s ban on handguns, the country’s strictest gun control law to date. Continue reading
