From the White House Web-Site on the Constitution

  "The Second Amendment gives citizens the right to bear arms." (Left out "KEEP" )

 As any student of mine knows .... Rights come from God ... the Second Amendment only enumerates that right ... the First Amendment does not grant freedom of Religion .... it simply states a right granted by God.

 The White House has attempted to rewrite the Bill of Rights and thus make it available to be rewritten with "revisions" in the future. Resist rewriting/amending the Constitution.

God Save the Republic.


 

The Constitution is not a living breathing organism from which you are allowed to chose those freedoms that suit you on any given day.  The first eight amendments are about restrictions on a government that impinges on your inherent rights.  This is not a cafeteria where you are allowed to chose your rights; its about restricting government's powers over your right to exercise your inherent freedoms. 

Surrender of these rights in not an option. The men and women of this country struggle to receive these God given rights and to protect future generations so they will have them too. 

No surrender.

The Second Amendment Protects the First

 

Of course if your plan is to dump the First then first you will try and dump the Second.

 

That is why there is a First and why I support the Second.

The End of Lead Bullets ..... or drive up the price and punish gun owners!

"Whether by state or federal regulation, or by market forces, lead bullets will be all but phased out within a few years in favor of so-called green bullets, experts say. While many believe that this will help the environment by keeping lead from contaminating groundwater, others say switching to copper-based bullets will cost hunters and sportsmen more and have little effect on the environment.

TEXAS PROTECTS ITS OWN

Students can Carry!

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas House approved a batch of bills Saturday to further soften gun laws that were already among the country's most firearms-friendly, allowing college students to carry handguns in class, putting potentially armed marshals in public schools and exempting the state from any future federal bans on assault rifles, high-capacity magazines or universal background checks. LInk

 

Without the Second Amendment we are at the Mercy of the Government and Crooks but then I repeat myself.


 

"The Kansas legislature will consider a firearms freedom act during its 2012 session.

HB2421 declares that, “a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in Kansas and that remains within the borders of Kansas is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce.” FANTASTIC!!


Americans buy record numbers of guns for Christmas!

According to the FBI, over 1.5 million background checks on customers were requested by gun dealers to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System in December. Nearly 500,000 of those were in the six days before Christmas.

It was the highest number ever in a single month, surpassing the previous record set in November.

On Dec 23 alone there were 102,222 background checks, making it the second busiest single day for buying guns in history.

“National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011.”

"On Wednesday, Nov. 16, the ongoing effort to fully vindicate the fundamental, individual right to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense took a major step forward with House passage of H.R. 822, the “National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011.” The bill, sponsored by Reps. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Heath Shuler (D-N.C.), which has 245 cosponsors, was approved by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 272-154."

Several amendments were offered to undermine the bill’s protections. Every one of these amendments was soundly defeated by an overwhelming bipartisan vote

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), who as chairman of the House Judiciary Committee provided crucial support to H.R. 822’s progress over the last several months, opened debate on the bill by describing in plain terms what it does. “This legislation requires states that currently allow people to carry concealed firearms to recognize other states’ valid concealed carry permits, much like states recognize driver’s licenses issued by other states,” NRA-ILA

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas): Floor statement on H.R. 822
"The Second Amendment is a fundamental right to bear arms that should not be constrained by state boundary lines. This legislation enhances public safety and protects the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment."

The Largest Trained Army in the World?

YOU, The American Gun Owner

Gun Control is best: When you use two hands!

Chuck Norris

"...no other country in the world enjoys America’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms. This is why the vast majority of U.N. diplomats believe that an arms trade treaty must reach into your gun safe and mine. There is little question that this treaty would require additional restrictions on our Second Amendment .."


Another 2nd Amendment Victory!

"Wisconsin gun owners can apply for a permit to carry concealed weapons starting in November, after Gov. Scott Walker signed the legislation Friday afternoon.

About 50 people, many with handguns at their side, cheered as Walker signed the bill." Link

"Five South Dakota lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require any adult 21 or older to buy a firearm "sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense."


Protect the First with the Second

"..the government claims that the First Amendment, contrary to popular belief, does not confer an inviolable right to speak freely about our elected officials." 

But the First was exactly written to protect speech against the Government ... 

"Congress shall make no law...."!! 

Why the Second Amendment?

  • deterring undemocratic government;
  • repelling invasion;
  • suppressing insurrection;
  • facilitating a natural right of self-defense;
  • participating in law enforcement;
  • enabling the people to organize a militia system,
  • From Wikipedia

And while your regulating the Internet grab a few guns too!

"The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has asked the White House budget office to approve an emergency request requiring border-area gun dealers to report the sales of two or more rifles to the same customer within a five-day period.

The emergency request, published Friday in the Federal Register, is likely to face stiff opposition from gun rights advocates, including the National Rifle Association. ATF wants the Office of Budget Management to approve the request by Jan. 5. " Link


" the Second Amendment, like freedom of speech, enjoys "strong but not unlimited protection." Kagan

In a questioner from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R) about gun rights during her confirmation to be Solicitor General, Kagan had this to say:

"Once again, there is no question, after Heller, that the Second Amendment guarantees individuals the right to keep and bear arms and that this right, like others in the Constitution, provides strong although not unlimited protection against governmental regulation."  Link

Remember that the Second Amendment  protects your First Amendment Rights ....  Governments are happiest when you have the fewest rights; The Bill of Rights was written to protect us from government; the government can not also be the entity that protects them too. Only the people can by reminding the government that it is WE THE PEOPLE who form government and WE THE PEOPLE  who can CHANGE it. Kent M. Herrick


WATCH AND ENJOY


They want our guns!


Is the Second Amendment Dead  ...... not quite but wait....!

"Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor refused yesterday to say whether or not she believes the Constitution guarantees that Americans can keep and bear arms."  Link  "she also sought to assure senators that she would keep an "open mind"  

Open mind! The Constitution states it; it must be so!

Sotomayor  "International law and foreign law will be very important in the discussion of how to think about the unsettled issues in our own legal system," 

Which international law ... Which country? Iran!! Russia! 


We are Texans; We love our Guns!

A bill by state Rep. Leo Berman exempting Texas-made firearms, gun accessories and ammunition sold within the state from federal regulation and law -- including registration -- was heard in a House committee on Monday.
The bill also provides for the Texas Attorney General's office to defend Texans who run afoul of the federal government because of this law.
Berman, a Tyler Republican who has pushed several "states' rights" measures this legislative session, said his bill would affect more than 300 manufacturers in the state.
"Under the 9th and 10th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution, states have responsibility for regulating intrastate commerce," Berman said. "The federal government has no role."


What is an Unloaded Weapon?

A very ineffective club!

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola), a gun-control activist threatening a primary challenge to (Sen.)Gillibrand over her pro-gun stance, said Friday said she does not criticize legally owned guns. McCarthy added, "I hope the guns didn't have bullets in them."


It is about Control not Guns

"Dunkin's bill amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, a previous bill aimed at chipping away at the Second Amendment. Dunkin's amendment states "that any person who owns a firearm in this State shall maintain a policy of liability insurance in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person."

The Right to Keep and Bear Upheld

SUPREME COURT WEBSITE.... 

"We start therefore with a strong presumption that the Second Amendment right is exercised individually and belongs to all Americans."

"the most natural reading of 'keep Arms' in the Second Amendment is to "have weapons."

Sen. McCain ... "Today's ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller makes clear that other municipalities like Chicago that have banned handguns have infringed on the constitutional rights of Americans," 

"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves...and include all men capable of bearing arms." (Richard Henry Lee)


Obama on the 2nd Amendment and why we must safeguard the Constitution in its entirety!

"Q: Is the D.C. law prohibiting ownership of handguns consistent with an individual's right to bear arms?  Link  ((Add "keep" never let them separate "keep" from "bear"))

A: As a general principle, I believe that the Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms. But just because you have an individual right does not mean that the state or local government can't constrain the exercise of that right, in the same way that we have a right to private property but local governments can establish zoning ordinances that determine how you can use it." Link

Excuse me ... but rights are not constrainable! "We are endowed by our Creator" not allowed certain privileges! The Second Amendment is about protection from unrestrained and usurptious government not about hunting and personal protection ... it is a collective right not an individual right .... and when taken with the right to change government in Convention in the First Amendment  it is our most powerful tool for the protection of the country.

8 Grocery Employees Stabbed in Tennessee

The attacker, chasing one victim into the store's parking lot, was subdued by Chris Cope, manager of a financial services office in the same small shopping center, Higgins said.

Cope said he grabbed a 9mm semiautomatic pistol from his pickup truck when he saw the attacker chasing the victim "like something in a serial killer movie."

When he turned around and saw my pistol, he threw the knife away, put his hands up and got on the ground," Cope told The Associated Press. "He saw my gun and that was pretty much it."

Police arrived within minutes and took the attacker into custody.

U.S. Supreme Court Rules!!   Link

A man's 96-hour, involuntary detention in a mental health facility was not a commitment and should not have disqualified him from obtaining a permit to acquire a gun, the state Supreme Court said Tuesday.

The court said David Nelson's "detention" for evaluation and treatment in 2003 did not result in his being "committed" to a mental health facility for purposes of restricting his right to acquire a gun. In ruling in Nelson's favor, the Supreme Court reversed and remanded a lower court decision that had sided with the Callaway County sheriff who had denied the gun permit.

"The way he saw it," the earlier ruling "painted him as being crazy," Nelson's attorney, Geoffrey Preckshot said of his client Tuesday. "He's feeling a tremendous amount of vindication in having his good name restored. He isn't crazy."


TEXAS   new gun-toting law has surprise backer: ACLU

In part ...."House Bill 823, which was passed by Texas legislators during the 2005 regular session, states that a person "is presumed to be traveling" and is legally permitted to carry a handgun in his car or truck if he is (1) in a private motor vehicle, (2) not engaged in criminal activity, (3) not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, (4) not a member of a "criminal street gang" and (5) not carrying the handgun "in plain view."

The bill was vigorously opposed by prosecutors and law enforcement officials who believed it would increase the number of guns on the state's streets and highways and do more harm than good.

In the column, I quoted Harris County District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal, who said that in his jurisdiction, "It is still going to be against the law for (unlicensed) persons to carry handguns in autos." And I suggested that Texans should probably think twice before stashing pistols in their glove boxes or under their bucket seats.

That warning prompted the Henson-initiated e-mail exchange.

"The new statute says juries MUST presume a driver is traveling and therefore legally carrying a gun unless the state disproves one of the five elements," the ACLUer insisted. "State Rep. Terry Keel, who authored the bill, says: 'In plain terms, a law-abiding person should not fear arrest if they are transporting a concealed weapon in a motor vehicle.' ...

"The story here isn't that the law was poorly written. The story here is that some prosecutors are so arrogant they think they don't have to follow the law."

Still, Henson cautioned: "I agree that drivers should be wary. Until this is settled (in the courts), they risk arrest."

GUN FIGHT LAWS

  1. Bring a gun. Preferably, bring at least two guns. Bring all of your friends who have guns.
  2. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap-life is expensive.
  3. Only hits count. The only thing worse then a miss is a slow miss.
  4. If your shooting stance is good, you're probably not moving fast enough or using cover correctly.
  5. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral and Diagonal movement are preferred.)
  6. If you can choose what to bring to a gunfight, bring a long gun and a friend with a long gun.
  7. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
  8. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating, reloading, and running.
  9. Accuracy is relative: most combat shooting standards will be dependent on "pucker factor" then the inherent accuracy of the gun. Use a gun that works EVERY TIME. "All skill is in vain when an Angel blows the powder from the flintlock of your musket."
  10. Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.
  11. Always cheat, always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
  12. Have a plan.
  13. Have a back-up plan, because the first one won't work.
  14. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
  15. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
  16. Don't drop your guard.
  17. Always tactical load and threat scan 360 degrees.
  18. Watch their hands. Hands kill. (In God we trust. Everyone else, keep your hands where I can see them.)
  19. Decide to be aggressive ENOUGH, quickly ENOUGH.
  20. The faster you finish the fight, the less shot you will get.
  21. Be polite. Be professional. But, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
  22. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
  23. Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
  24. Do not attend a gun fight with a handgun, the caliber of which does not start with anything smaller then "4".
  25. Your can't miss fast enough to win.

Texas Carry Law .... as defining the term traveling :

New Law on Carrying Firearm while “Traveling”

(House Bill 823, 79th Regular Legislative Session, amending Penal Code

Sections 2.05 and 46.15)

In Texas, it is generally unlawful to carry a handgun in public, including within a private

vehicle. However, Texas also recognizes several exceptions. One such exception is applicable

when the citizen is “traveling.”

“Traveling” has never been defined by the legislature. Texas courts have said that in

general, the determination of whether a citizen is traveling is to be determined on a case by case

basis, depending on the specific circumstances. Texas courts have generally considered the

distance, time, and mode of travel in determining whether the citizen is traveling and have found

“traveling” to generally encompass overnight travel, through multiple counties.

The change in the law, effective September 1, 2005, places the burden of proof on the

State rather than the citizen as to whether or not the citizen was traveling. In other words, the

State must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the citizen was NOT traveling, rather than the

citizen having to prove that he or she WAS traveling. The new law also describes the

circumstances under which a citizen will be presumed by a jury to be traveling.

Some local law enforcement and prosecuting agencies have indicated that they will

continue to make arrests and file charges when they encounter citizens carrying handguns in

motor vehicles and will allow juries to determine whether citizens were traveling. DPS has no

authority to determine or to comment on how this law will be enforced by the various local law

enforcement and prosecuting agencies in the State of Texas.

 

                          

Amendment II

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.

Hey Editor!

Have fun lugging that 'iron'. Rhetorically, do we have a Constitutional right to carry an UNconcealed weapon without a permit? I've always wondered if I could carry my .45 in public in my canvas G.I. holster with the grip strap and no flap. I think you ought to get a 2nd Amendment page going. That would be a lot more fun for me. R

Answer ... There is no constitutional right to the Unconcealed weapon in public. In private you can do as you please .... except in those states that violate the constitution altogether and like D.C. seem to ban all guns... K
