Why Every (Yes, Every) Gun Control Law Is Unconstitutional
Written by: Byron Berger Self Defense July 11, 2014

*** begin quote ***

What’s interesting about this language is that it states that the right to bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed. The Founding Fathers placed a bright-line prohibition on infringement of the right. They knew the difference between an outright prohibition and the providing to the federal government the ability to place reasonable restrictions on a right. For example, the Fourth Amendment prohibits “unreasonable” search and seizure.

Until 2010, the significant weakness of the Second Amendment was that, in some minds, it did not apply to state or local governments. These governments were free to make any regulations their state supreme courts held acceptable under the state constitutions. That’s why states like New York and California could virtually ban their citizens from bearing arms.

But it all changed in 2010, when the United States Supreme Court decided McDonald v. Chicago. This case held that the Second Amendment was “incorporated.” This legal term means that the states and local governments now must follow the limitations of the federal Constitution’s Second Amendment, and that state laws cannot be more restrictive than those allowed by the Second Amendment.

Had an interesting discussion with a young lady going off to college and concerned about personal safety.

A friends recommended MACE or Pepper Spray. 

I disagreed.

The young lady will travel from the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, through the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee, to the Pepuls Republik of Konn-net-tea-cut!

Guaranteed she will fall afoul of the diktats in one of those three “jurisdiction”.

I recommend pursuing other options — one of which was a concealed carry permit in all three states. Virtually impossible for “regular people”.

As well as self-defense classes and situational awareness training (OODA).

If some one is going to hurt her, I want her to stop it cold!

GUN: Reciprocity — driver’s license, yes; a concealed carry permit, no?

Atlantic County, New Jersey (My9NJ) -
27 year-old Shaneen Allen from Philadelphia wanted to protect her family. She took a gun safety course, applied for and was granted a concealed carry permit and she purchased a gun.

Welcome to the Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee!

Absurd.

It’s perfectly reasonable to assume that, like a driver’s license, a concealed carry permit has reciprocity.

But, Nooooo!

GUNS: Gun Control in Nazi Germany; it CAN happen here and has

Gun Control in Nazi Germany
By Audrey D. Kline
Mises.org
May 10, 2014

*** begin quote ***

As has been well documented, Jews were methodically attacked, their homes, businesses, and synagogues ransacked and burned. Upward of 30,000 Jews were arrested. Any Jews resisting arrest were ordered shot on the spot. Attacks on the Jews were to be carried out by the SA, with no interference by police. Jews arrested were to be sent to concentration camps for up to 20 years. The pogrom was so thorough that nearly all age appropriate, Jewish adult males in Stuttgart had been arrested. With the population afraid and disarmed, Hitler could proceed with little worry about resistance. The Court reinforced that there was no judicial review needed for activities of the Gestapo.

Halbrook concludes by noting that less government regulation and a tradition of rejecting tyranny could have led to a different outcome in Germany. Instead, systematic creation and manipulation of firearms registration and regulations, coupled with the decimation of individual citizen’s rights, enabled Hitler’s dictatorship and the slaughter of millions of innocent Jews and citizens of Nazi-occupied countries, as well as tens of thousands of Germans. It remains for all of us to wonder what might have been had people refused to register their firearms. Indeed, we should all take note and never forget.

“Gun Control” aka “Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose

Remember that it started in South to protect the KKK. Can’t have victims shooting back.

And never forget the Japanese internment.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Die in the camps like cattle or die fighting.

You’re dead either way.

The character “Ronald Spiers” in Band of Brothers (a 2001 TV Mini-Series): “The only hope you have is to accept the fact that you’re already dead. The sooner you accept that, the sooner you’ll be able to function as a soldier is supposed to function: without mercy, without compassion, without remorse. All war depends upon it.”

GUNS: “Help will be there is a few minutes.”

Friday, January 31, 2014

best line is: “But I don’t have a few minutes.”

Argh!

Technically, I guess she should have waited until he broke in. 

But, if I was on the Jury, I’d wink at that distinction. 

Not like he was there to sell Girl Scout cookies.

GUNS: NFL banned commercial

Thursday, December 5, 2013

http://www.gunsandammo.com/2013/11/27/nfl-bans-super-bowl-gun-commercial/

Why would the NFL ban this commercial from the Superbowl unless it has a political agenda?

Maybe RKBA activists should boycott the Superbowl!

GUNS: No P.F. Chang, Waffle House, or Buffalo Wild Wings for me

I Refuse to Support a Company that Doesn’t Support Me…
BY TIM SCHMIDT – USCCA FOUNDER

Tim SchmidtI’ve been a regular patron of my local Buffalo Wild Wings for several years now, ever since they opened in late 2009.

Correction:

I WAS a regular patron of my local Buffalo Wild Wings for several years. That is—until they posted a sign banning guns on their premises. As you can imagine, I saw that sign and turned right back around. I never made it inside.

I did a little research and found that earlier this year, Buffalo Wild Wings corporate headquarters came under fire over their stance on concealed weapons in their corporate franchises around the country. They issued the following statement:

“Buffalo Wild Wings respects the right of individuals to carry firearms. One of our top priorities is the comfort, safety and enjoyment of our Guests and we have elected to exercise our right to prohibit the carrying of firearms in our company-owned restaurants. We regret any inconvenience this may cause but believe that this long-standing position is in the best interest of our Guests and our Team Members. This position may vary in independently owned franchised locations.”

Hold on a second. Best interest? I don’t know about you, but I don’t believe anyone knows more about my best interest than me.

The sad part is that this is just one example in a string of similar incidents. Other well-known companies across the nation have faced major scrutiny for their stances on guns.

You’ll likely recall how just last month Starbucks ignited outrage from the concealed carry community after calling guns “unwelcome” in their stores. The funny thing is, Starbucks also issued a statement saying they weren’t actually banning firearms and that customers who carry will not be asked to leave. As much as I don’t like their choice of the word “unwelcome,” at least they’re leaving the choice to carry in my hands—exactly where it should be.

My point in all of this is that if I let down my guard and continue to support a company that doesn’t support my rights, I might as well jump to the other side of the fence. You may think it’s an extreme move, but it’s the right one for me. You and I both know that any attempt to infringe on our right to protect ourselves and our families—even seemingly small attempts—are still dangerous.

I carry to keep my family safe—and if I can’t do that while out for some chicken wings, then I’ll simply take my business elsewhere. What will YOU do?
Take Care and Stay Safe,

As a responsible gun owner, I too am boycotting any business that has such a policy. 

Guess I better start a list:

  1. P.F. Chang
  2. Waffle House
  3. (adding) Buffalo Wild Wings

Did I miss anyone?

GUN: District of Corruption Victim Disarmerment

THE D.C. GUN RAID YOU WON’T BELIEVE WITH AN ENDING YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO STOMACH
Oct. 24, 2013 9:26am Dave Urbanski

*** begin quote ***

When more than 30 police officers in full tactical gear descended upon the house of a successful Washington, D.C., businessman with no criminal record last summer, they were looking for “firearms and ammunition … gun cleaning equipment, holsters, bullet holders and ammunition receipts,” The Washington Times reported.

But what did police find after they shut down the streets for blocks around Mark Witaschek’s Georgetown home, broke down a bathroom door with a battering ram and pulled his 16-year-old son out of the shower naked, pointed guns at the heads of Witaschek and his girlfriend, handcuffed them and then “tossed the place” for two hours?

Very little, according to the Times’ Emily Miller:

“One live round of 12-gauge shotgun ammunition” — actually an inoperable shell that misfired during a hunt years earlier that Witaschek kept as a souvenir.
“One handgun holster” — perfectly legal.
“One expended round of .270 caliber ammunition” — a spent brass casing.
“One box of Knight bullets for reloading,” according to police notation on the warrant. Except, Miller reveals, they aren’t for reloading — they’re for antique-replica, single-shot, muzzle-loading rifles.
And after all that, in the wake of a raid which Witaschek estimates resulted in $10,000 damage to his house, he faces two years in prison for possession of unregistered ammunition, the Times reported.

D.C. law requires residents to register every firearm with police, and only registered gun owners can possess ammunition, which includes spent shells and casings. The maximum penalty for violating these laws is a $1,000 fine and a year in jail, the Times noted.

Argh!

DC is NOT a state. 

So why doesn’t the Second Amendment apply?

Hopefully this goes to Supreme Court for a slap down.

… but asking the Gooferment to rule against itself is not what a free people do!
