Gun Control: The Die Is Cast


Virginia gun-grabbing legislation and Dem Party propaganda following the pro-gun protests demonstrates more tyrannical measures are forthcoming. Gun-grabbing and the examples of Dem Party lies during the Impeachment fiasco appears to be the continuing Dem modus operandi to terminate American Liberty and Freedom. To preserve the Republic vote the Founders’ Constitution. If Dem corruption prevails, YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO!

 

Justin Smith has some precise thoughts.

Gun Control: The Die Is Cast  

Free Americans Don’t Submit to Tyrannical Fiats

 

By Justin O. Smith

“One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation.” ~ Congressman Thomas Brackett Reed (1886)

 

Over the past five decades, the anti-American, anti-firearms tyrants have been forcefully striving in both Congress and States’ legislatures to suppress and completely eradicate anyone’s ability to exercise their right to keep and bear arms and to self-defense under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and recently, in this month of January, the people of Virginia experienced the consequences from giving Democrats full control over all three branches of government. Their first order of business was to pass a series of vindictive, retributive proposals out of committee that are aimed at the normal population of the state, starting with firearms and the law-abiding citizens who own them, and this gives us all a glimpse of what is ahead for America, during a juncture in history that is our most dangerous time for the Bill of Rights and individual liberty.

 

Lobby Day on January 20th has been a tradition in Virginia for several years now, whereupon its citizens take up issues and grievances with their lawmakers, and as such, it was only natural that, upon hearing of the egregious new “gun control” proposals, thousands of American patriots across Virginia and the entire country decided to descend on the Capitol in Richmond to decry such illegitimate and illegal actions, and the tyrannical process that tried to justify them.

 

Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase openly carried a .38 caliber firearm in a custom holster, on January 15th 2019, as she presented her pro-gun bills to a Senate committee. She explained, “It’s a deterrent for over-exuberant folks” when she was questioned over openly carrying a loaded firearm into the Senate committee meeting, as numerous other legislators had been doing for years, as permitted under existing Virginia law.

On January 16th, the Democratic Party majority in the Virginia state Senate passed bills that required: universal background checks; limited firearm purchases to one a month; gave illegitimate powers to local governments to ban weapons; and imposed a permanent ban on carrying firearms inside the Capitol and legislative building, essentially seeking to eradicate current state law that permits it. They reciprocated as expected to Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown for Gun Safety organization, that had donated a total of $2.5 million specifically to see this gun control agenda come to fruition.

 

They are even seeking to forbid the private transfer of firearms, which also violates our right to own property and dispense of it as we choose, under the 5th Amendment . Their attacks on the “gun show loophole” is simply arbitrary and tyrannical nonsense. It is the Democratic Party communists’ precursor to firearm licensing and confiscation, and when all the firearms are accounted for in a database somewhere, they can readily be confiscated on the assigned day.

 

It’s worth noting that any “law” that attacks the weapon rather than the crime or the criminal is one that is illegitimate, since it must automatically falsely assume that anyone carrying any weapon is doing so for a malicious and criminal purpose. Likewise, permits, taxes and other such restraints on firearms unfairly impede and infringe on the rights of poor people in exercising this right. Designers of such “law” assume the worse of people and deny that anyone might be just an innocent, good man going armed for the lawful purpose of self-defense. Nowhere in the Constitution does it say that a person can keep and bear arms if he meets certain standards first; the Second Amendment carries absolutely no qualifiers.

 

Several previous statements from Democratic lawmakers had indicated that this was the direction they would go, and in fact, they made no secret of it during their campaigns. It was with this in mind that the Virginia Citizen’s Defense League organized a peaceful rally scheduled for January 20th and Lobby Day, with the stated intentions of dissuading lawmakers from pursuing this illiberal, gun-grabbing agenda. Also, this foreshadowing of tyranny to come prompted 100 of Virginia’s counties to declare themselves “Second Amendment sanctuaries”.

 

The people weren’t quite fully antagonized until these bills were actually passed and sent forth. And they were further antagonized, when Governor Ralph Northam used a manufactured crisis to issue a Declaration of Emergency — Executive Order 49 — and an illegal and UnConstitutional temporary gun ban, that also included knives and sticks from January 17th until 5:00 PM January 21st; and some within his camp suggested the National Guard might be used to enforce it. Northam used the highly timely and suspicious and questionable arrests of six “suspected neo-Nazis” in the four days prior to the rally, including a Canadian army reservist with supposed ties to “hate groups”, which given Canada’s current leftist nature could only mean those standing for liberty.

 

Northam’s “state of emergency” claim was challenged by Gun Owners of America and the Virginia Civil Defense League, through an emergency injunction filed against the governor. Lobby Day has been attended for years by the very same people Governor Ralph Northam tried to paint as “radical, right wing extremists” and “violent white supremacists” with the help of the Leftist media in America, such as MSNBC and CNN and ABC “news” networks. And, it is at this point one must certainly wonder what actual good comes from lobbying, when your so-called “representatives”, the Court and the governor are traitors to the Constitution and the people of Virginia and America, all too ready and willing to impose their lawless tyranny.

 

As noted before the Virginia State Supreme Court, which later upheld the ban, in 2012, the General Assembly specifically forbade the Governor by law from using a declaration of emergency to ban firearms.

 

Whatever Northam hoped to accomplish, his actions only ensured that thousands of good, decent and fine American Patriots from all across America would arrive, openly displaying military-style semiautomatic rifles and “Guns Save Lives” stickers, chanting “USA” as they waved “Come and Take It” banners and sang our National Anthem.  And by 10:30 AM on the morning of the 20th, fifty-five hundred were already inside the “Cage” erected around the Capitol by authorities. By the middle of the day, almost 60,000 total were in the Capitol area protesting [police estimates place the number closer to 30,000], and they were peacefully demanding these Democratic Party anti-Second Amendment proposals and “laws” be stopped from going any further.

 

As reported by the NYTs, Teri Horne, of Quitman, Texas, arrived with about three dozen women from the Open Carry Texas organization. They drove twenty-four hours ‘to support the people in Virginia’, as they stood armed on the sidewalk across from the entrance to the Capitol grounds. Ms. Horne was armed with a Smith and Wesson M&P 15T rifle, toting a Texas flag, too.

 

Another pro-gun protester, Logan Smith, of Indianapolis, said: “It matters to me back home. Seeing stuff like this (gun control legislation) being pushed, it doesn’t sit well.”

 

Sheriff Scott Jenkins of Culpeper County, Virginia, an outspoken longtime gun rights advocate, spoke to the gathered crowd and offered the following: “I ask you all to return to your homes and ask your elected officials, where is the line they will not cross?”

 

Not one violence related arrest occurred during the entire day, and the protest did not grow heated, despite Gov. Northam’s and law enforcement’s warnings of out-of-state “hate groups”, militias and angry, violent neo-Nazis descending on Virginia, repeated frequently and loudly by the media. There was one arrest that resulted from a young lady’s refusal to remove the bandana from her face, violating Virginia’s laws against masking one’s face.

 

It’s a curious matter to hear Northam decry violence, when he and his supporters and staff have spent decades doing violence against Christianity, decency and common sense, investing their life’s work to destroying and dismantling America, as they consistently attempt to intimidate conservative Americans. Let’s not forget, Gov. Northam is the same man who publicly advocated murdering “unwanted” babies even after they had been placed alive on the delivery room table; he and his party are lovers of death, master manipulators and propagandists accustomed to getting their way.

 

Even more curious and insidious, from approximately 5:54 PM January 16th through the 20th, a U-28A , a manned, airborne intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, single engine, modified Pilatus PC-12 aircraft, under the Air Force Special Operations Command, was spotted circling the Virginia Capitol. It was tracked to Camp Peary, near Williamsburg, Virginia, that plays host to the CIA’s covert training operations at “The Farm” and the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Defense Clandestine Service.

 

Although James Madison and Thomas Jefferson were discussing the federal government in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions, they wrote, these resolutions’ words can equally apply to the states. They state: “Resolved, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government … and whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void and of no force.”

 

Just as three thousand WWII Veterans used their Second Amendment right, to stop a corrupt Sheriff and 200 deputies from stealing an election in Athens, TN in 1946 and Monroe, North Carolina’s Black Guard used firearms to defend themselves from a violent, murderous Ku Klux Klan chapter in the 1960s, each and every single U.S. citizen has the absolute right to defend themselves against any criminal attack and any act of tyranny by any government entity, be it federal or state. Similarly one can exercise this right of self-defense to repel any group that advocates and uses violence in attempts to forcefully subjugate others, in the manner that today’s New Black Panthers advocate for the murder of white people at every opportunity and Antifa Communists call for killing and/or “re-educating” conservatives, Republicans and Trump supporters, by use of force. This Second Amendment right — this God-Given Right — cannot be abrogated or eradicated by any majority’s man-made “law” designed to end one’s liberty.

 

Several other states have either already passed extreme anti-firearm legislation, similar to Colorado, or they are moving to do so, like Georgia, Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, Hawaii and several others. One should also note that approximately 110 “gun laws” have been proposed in Congress already this year.

 

So no one should be resting easy, simply because this rally went off without any major confrontation. Governor Ralph Northam and his Democratic Party communist cronies listened and they are unimpressed and moving ahead with the gun bills, business as usual, as though nothing has happened. Anyone who still thinks the normal rules of governance are in play is denying the new reality, that the Democrats of today are beyond reason, and Northam and his leftist cabal, the chattering globalists of Virginia, are not to be trusted or respected, and they will remain unmoved by any pleas to guard Constitutional norms, the Bill of Rights, individual rights.

 

America has entered a post-Constitution era, or so it seems, whereby a new template is forming for fascist state governments in any of the fifty states to suppress our individual liberty and completely control their people, since freedom and liberty mean nothing to these new Democratic Party communists and statists, who act like rulers rather than representatives of the people. This is the most important issue in the nation, as America witnesses Machiavellian politics and actions, that have taken the situation in our country beyond the pale, the most dangerous times of our history, whereby our system fails us and tyranny is taking the day. And with no relief found in a failed system, by way of representatives, courts, and even elections, we are left alone to our own devices and days that demand the Tree of Liberty be Watered with the Blood of Tyrants, as we are unwilling to submit to illegitimate, illegal and tyrannical fiats.

 

[Blog Editor – a history to present lesson about Dem-communist repression:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Second Amendment’s primary function is to serve as an affirmation of the people’s right to fight off any tyrannical government or force, both foreign and domestic, and the Framers of the Constitution wrote it in a direct response to the tyranny the early Americans had experienced at the hands of the British, not as a hunting license. In Federalist Paper No. 46, James Madison wrote that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every nation … [where] the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” And Thomas Jefferson concluded: “What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.”

 

The die is cast in Virginia and across America, and this rising trend towards government overreach, violating the Bill of Rights and tyranny will not stop, until the American people place some well-deserved fear in the hearts and minds of these anti-American legislators, all across the country, bringing them to the full realization that they do not rule over the people. If that ultimately means bloodshed, so be it.

 

The right to keep and bear arms is imperative to the God-given Right of every man, woman and child to be free of the evil tyrants who walk the halls of government.

 

The law violated and ignored, moral persuasion constantly falling on deaf ears, and freedom and liberty at stake. The only thing left is the bullet.

Virginia Gun Grab a Catalyst?


John R. Houk, Blog Editor

Posted 1/20/20

 

Yesterday Justin Smith shared two posts he wrote picked up by The Federal Observer displaying very correct frustration with Virginia Dems led by their hypocritical yet clearly Left-Wing Governor (Blackface) Ralph Northam. The frustration is over gun grabbing.

The significance is this overt disregard to the 2nd Amendment may be a spark or perhaps THE spark leading to open violence between Living Constitution Leftists and Originalist Constitution Conservatives.

 

When political differences are irreconcilable, what decides the conclusion? I believe YOU know the answer. Would you support government tyranny over individual Liberty? Pick a side and deal with the consequences.

I say go, and Go Fully Armed. Essentially GO BIG or Stay Home.

 

The TYRANT Northam is the bad agent here, along with the Democratic Majority. If they are really so vile and evil as to go to such an egregious length of action, as to further exacerbate a bad situation, that’s on them.

 

They are violating our rights. What would these canaries in the mine have us do? Forever submit? When is the right or wrong time to make a stand for a righteous cause?

 

For me, one stands as soon as tyranny starts.

 

The Leftist Democratic Party communists want a war? Let them fire the first shots And Then LET’S GIVE IT TO THEM.

 

I’m sick to death from witnessing these anti-American pieces of walking shit tearing my country asunder and spoiling everything good and decent this nation was built upon. I am sick of seeing them offer “compromise” that is so filled with self-serving evil for their side that it is no compromise whatsoever.

 

These people no longer operate within the Constitution or even on anything remotely associated with our Founding Principles.

 

Clint Eastwood as Outlaw Josey Wales by Stephen Holland

 

Before I see them take this country down into a system of serfdom whereby the people are subjugated under an authoritarian socialist regime, that grants privilege to the select few rather than protecting and defending the people’s God-Given Rights, I will pick up a rifle and do my utmost to force them to leave this nation or stay here permanently in their graves … their choice.

 

But one of Us needs relief, and at this point, I don’t particularly give a good damn which leaves this earth first. If they keep on this illiberal, anti-freedom, anti-American tract in Virginia and other leftist regions of the country, we’d be far better off deciding in the right here and now, whether or not this country is going to devolve into a Third World Banana republic and a totalitarian regime or rise again into a Truly Free Republic that respects and defends the people’s rights; and should they keep successfully suppressing those rights and utilize government forces to do so, i.e. federal law enforcement and the National Guard, as they have threatened, I intend to leave the dead carcasses of the Red, Radical Democratic Party Communist Rat Bastards stacked ten feet high and ten feet deep all about me in all directions for as far as the eye can see, in order that our children and their children’s children may live free.

 

This is MY War that I fight, ’til the forces of Liberty emerge victorious or ’til I thrash to and fro in my last dying gasps, taken down by a damn Commie bullet – so help me God.

The following is a brief commentary by noted columnist and writer, Justin O. Smith in response to a post I made on Facebook in the early morning hours of General Lee’s birthday. As most are aware – the North has once again invaded Virginia. ~ Ed.

 

If not Willing to Fight – Don’t Cry About Loss [Slogan Summarized]

 

I’ve been seeing all these reports too. We know what this is and so too does every other law abiding American conservative.

 

Let them stir the situation up as much as they want. If conservatives play it smart and stand in blocks of people they know, with other blocks of like-minded, once they arrive, they should be the only ones intimidating anyone — not because they are intending to intimidate anyone. If they will stick to their guns and go armed … no pun intended … they will make one hell of a statement by that alone. And I imagine the police will be reluctant to actually draw their weapons and fire first.

 

But, there could be a very real possibility of some miscreant paid agent firing a few shots into the air in the middle of the crowd to act as the spark to create a free for all gun battle between conservatives and gun control advocates, or someone might even shoot into the conservative side.

 

There’s just no telling what will happen, but no one going there should let that trouble them, not if they really believe in what they’re doing and if they understand the importance of what they are doing. We can’t run our lives from a position of “what might happen”. All we can do is show up with only good intentions aimed at correcting a wrong against us. If the other side plays foul, then all bets are off.

 

Justin O. Smith

 

There’s a time and place to say please and thank you, and then there are other times when all one can do is roll in the muck with the SOB’s and bash their heads in ….. their bad deed started this. Their choice on how it ends.

 

This would be a good time to send a strong and clear message around the country that Americans won’t stand for any gun control, state or federal, not in Virginia, not in Tennessee, not in Arizona, not in any of the 50 states of this “union”.

~ A Message from the Publisher ~ [Jeffrey Bennett]
(Updated: June 21, 2019) It has been said that those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it! My first broadcast on World Wide Christian Radio was on June 28, 1995. Since that time, I have attempted to address the problems and the future of this nation in a manner that was unique from others who were, and are still, broadcasting on the ‘alternative media.’ My broadcasts have utilized historical, biblical and the financial knowledge which I have attained over six-decades on this earth – to get the message regarding the plans of the now and future “rulers” of the world – across to both knowledgeable and uninformed Americans alike.

 

I can think of no simpler way to describe The Federal Observer, but with the words of the great Patrick Henry of Virginia:

 

“It is natural for man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.”

 

It began one September morning…
Three days after the attacks of September 11th, 2001 The Federal Observer, in conjunction with Armed Females of America posted the petition, which would ultimately lead to victory to restore a commercial airline pilot’s right to be armed in defense of his aircraft, his crew and ultimately – his passengers. Three hundred and fifty-nine days after our modern “Day of Infamy”, the second leg of our battle for America was won. In just READ THE REST

Standing Firm in the Face of Tyranny


Consider this quote from Justin Smith:

 

Some poor law enforcement agent will be placed between a rock and a hard spot, if he truly understands the Constitution, whenever he is serving under some Democratic majority government and has orders to confiscate the firearms of the people in his area — those who have not relinquished them and sold them “back” to the government. Those men who go against their oaths to uphold the Constitution, in favor of illegitimate and illegal orders from the new rising despots and tyrants will create a collision juncture between the forces of tyranny and the immovable forces of freedom and liberty. And for those in law enforcement who do understand the full import of their oaths, they will stand with liberty and freedom first.  

 

The United States probably hasn’t faced such political division among Americans since the Civil War when the first Republican President would not allow a divided union over the issue of slavery. Today’s divide is between Americans who actually understand the principles of our Founding was primarily to resist the tyranny of a powerful government (the Conservative Right) and Americans brainwashed an all powerful government will take care of all life’s needs – OR ELSE (the Left-Wing).

 

Such a division will force law enforcement at all levels and military members to make a choice if a Left-Wing government asserts control over people’s lives: Namely whether or not to support the edicts of an all-powerful government or their oath to the U.S. Constitution that resulted after our Founders forced out a tyrannical government.

Standing Firm in the Face of Tyranny

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 9/18/2019 4:19 PM

 

Live Free or Die. Some of us mean those words when we say them.

 

Americans may mouth the words, but when push comes to shove, too many either really don’t care or they are cowards deep down, who will allow the status quo to carry on, no matter how sorry a state of affairs has grown around it; or, their own ignorance is so deep that the God Given nature of our individual rights is beyond their grasp and understanding, and those words in the mouths of the timid, the weak and unsure become mere noises like the squeaking of a mouse eking out an advertising catch-phrase. Their words are empty and void of any sense of duty and obligation to themselves, their families and their country and what one must do to actually maintain a free society.

 

Today, in astounding fashion, we see a majority of the Democrats and even quite a large number of Republicans bowing to their feelings and the communists and statists within the House and the Senate, as the whine over the scourge of “gun violence” reaches a fever pitch. These gun-grabbers personify firearms, as if these inanimate firearms are chaotically running about America slaughtering innocent citizens. And we now hear many Democrats and television network hosts and pundits asserting “assault weapons ownership is not synonymous with gun ownership.”

 

A brick or a hammer is an “assault weapon”, and if anything, the AR-15 is simply a tool for the defense of home and person. It is no different than the 1905 Remington .308 semi-automatic, from the days when mass shootings were unheard of and an unthinkable and evil act, and the good morals of society prevented such things, through the people’s own self-restraint and will to only act for each other’s well-being.  Firearms are harmless left at rest, and the damage they do, the good or evil, lies with the intent of the man holding it.

 

It makes no difference to the weak of America that the Second Amendment was enacted after America had just come off the bloody battlefields from a terrible war against the tyranny imposed by the British. Memories of what happens when citizens are disarmed have long faded, and the Founding principles have seemingly been very nearly eradicated by the flood of revisionism history and the constant asinine assertions that the “right to keep and bear arms” is somehow only for hunting, as they completely ignore the part that says, “shall not be infringed”. This plain language has not been enough to secure our freedom, even today, because those fine words in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution cannot help us, if the ideas they express are not engraved deep within the hearts of all Americans.

 

Despite the clear negative right telling government that it cannot “infringe” on our right to carry firearms for the lawful purpose of self-defense, it has long been more than obvious that Democrats want to take our firearms. The Democrat communists and statists continue to politicize mass shootings, as they rally and advocate for the further infringement and the outright abrogation of the Second Amendment.

 

During the Democratic Party presidential candidates’ debate, on September 12th 2019, the Far Left radical Beto O’Rourke gave the firearm debate a hard electric jolt, when he flatly stated:  “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47. We’re not going to allow them to be used against fellow Americans anymore.”

 

Shortly after Beto’s revelation, Cheryl Chumley, journalist at the Washington Times wrote: “All the Democrats who’ve tried for years to deny the gun confiscation motives behind their gun control pushes went — nooooooo. There’s the golden ticket the NRA, the Republican Party, the patriotic Second Amendment supporters of this country needed to prove their argument. … Democrats want to confiscate guns, pure and simple.”

 

Recently on the Jimmy Fallon Show (Sept. 16th), Kamala Harris, Democrat candidate for president, advocated for mandatory buyback programs the “right” way, by giving “people their value, the financial value of what they have and not just taking things from people that have value without compensating them”.

 

A recent poll from the Washington Post suggests, however accurate or inaccurate, that thirty-one percent of Republicans and fifty-five percent of independents would support mandatory buybacks. If true, this should be more than troubling to America’s freedom loving patriots, as it suggests a certain willingness by many to subvert the nation’s founding and erode liberty.

 

But I did not buy my firearms from the government, and so, the government cannot legitimately enact a mandatory buyback program that is flagrantly unconstitutional and strips U.S. citizens of their rights, while the criminals are still largely untouched by any laws it may pass. I don’t want to sell my firearms “back” to the government. What now?

 

Some poor law enforcement agent will be placed between a rock and a hard spot, if he truly understands the Constitution, whenever he is serving under some Democratic majority government and has orders to confiscate the firearms of the people in his area — those who have not relinquished them and sold them “back” to the government. Those men who go against their oaths to uphold the Constitution, in favor of illegitimate and illegal orders from the new rising despots and tyrants will create a collision juncture between the forces of tyranny and the immovable forces of freedom and liberty. And for those in law enforcement who do understand the full import of their oaths, they will stand with liberty and freedom first.

 

Our right to keep and bear arms shouldn’t even be up for debate, that time having long passed. However, no deluge of facts and statistics will change the minds of the Democratic communists and their radical brown shirts, since their true desire is to render the law abiding Americans defenseless and unable to defend our families, our property, our communities and ourselves and stand in the breach in defiance of their numerous depredations and treason, while they reduce everything and everyone to the common denominator of poverty and misery and nothing more than serfs, who are forced to surrender to their socialist super-state, the Leviathan. These radicals absolutely will try to take our weapons.

 

Thirty-two years after the Battle of Bennington (August 16th 1777), in a letter to Veterans of the War for Independence, General Stark wrote: “They were men who had not learned the art of submission, nor had they been trained to the art of war. But our astonishing success taught the enemies of liberty that undisciplined freemen are superior to veteran slaves”.

 

For any knowledgeable patriot, it is an easy choice. Any move to disarm America must be met with swift action and massive force, since no mystery is found in the progression of what follows the disarming of any people, revealed time and again in the annals of history and a trail of death, genocides and tyranny. Standing firm in the face of rapidly advancing tyranny is not a hard choice.

 

Free men understand that slavery begins with the end of the government’s acknowledgement of our right to keep and bear arms and its role as a supposed defender of the Bill of Rights, and as such, anyone supporting the suppression of our right to bear arms, through their mistaken belief that only the State should possess the tools of violence, is fit only for the cattle cars; whether malicious in their intent or just plain ignorant, it is of little importance at this point, since they hold a statist vision that seeks to shame and browbeat good and decent Americans into submitting to totalitarianism. There isn’t any prescription or solution to any problem that can start by signing away a God given right that will always exist despite such a foolish act, a right that preexists government. And Free Men with liberty engraved and blazing upon their hearts, who are forced to meet the forces of tyranny, repression and subjugation with steely grips on their weapons, can only answer with a blistering inferno of bullets and intensely wielded hot, blurring blades, that are, in fact, the final arbiter of freedom.

The Rush Towards Tyranny


I find it understandable Americans are upset that mass shootings can seemingly occur one incident after another and another. But What most of those upset Americans do not understand is gun control laws whether they be gun confiscation, Red Flag Laws, Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO) or whatever else restrains the Founding Fathers’ intent for ratifying the Second Amendment; will eventually lead to the tyranny of the Elite.

 

Justin Smith addresses the alarming utilization of government power that restrains law abiding citizens more than law-breaking criminals.

The Rush Towards Tyranny  

Eroding Liberty – Unconstitutional: Red Flags & Gun Bans

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/11/2019 7:00 PM

 

Americans are rushing towards tyranny more frequently these days, in the wake of three recent mass shootings, and they are calling for unconstitutional and illegitimate new laws that penalize honest and decent Americans in an unconscionable manner, while doing little in the way of creating real solutions. If anyone believes red flag laws, expanded background checks and bans on semi-automatic weapons will make them safer, they are so sadly mistaken, and, if enacted, not only will they not be any safer, they will be less free, with their God given rights further eroded and suppressed.

 

Every law-abiding U.S. citizen should be up-in-arms and in an uproar over President Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others, such as key Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC), Sen. Pat Toomey (PA), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL) and Sen. John Cornyn (TX) pursuing new gun control legislation and “compromises” with Democrats, such as Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA), Sen. Chuck Schumer (NY), Sen. Richard Blumenthal (CT) and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA), especially when any real compromise doesn’t exist, and never will. Even as Republicans showed their willingness to enact stronger background checks and red flag laws, Democrats were screaming for stores, like Walmart, to stop selling ammo and guns and for laws that invoke higher taxes on both, as well as a law banning semi-automatic rifles; Republicans are becoming willing accomplices in the Democrat goal of eradicating the Second Amendment.

 

Despite his bluster and tough talk as a strong defender of the Second Amendment, President Trump is not to be trusted on this issue, since he has a long standing known propensity for gun control, favoring gun bans as late as 2009, and as President, Donald Trump has already violated the Second Amendment through his Executive Order that authorized the Department of Justice to regulate bumpstocks, which also flies in the face of D.C. vs Heller, in which the Court acknowledged that an individual has the right to keep and bear arms of the same sophistication and technological advancement of the U.S. military, since the Second Amendment was written as a measure to ensure U.S. citizens’ rights to arm themselves against any tyrannical government, not to hunt deer.

 

As noted by the Court in 2010 in McDonald vs. City of Chicago,The right to keep and bear arms is ‘among those fundamental rights necessary to our system of ordered liberty.”

 

With McDonald vs Chicago, the Court ruled that the Second Amendment was “incorporated”. This legal term placed states and local governments on notice that they must follow the limitations of the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment and could not make laws more restrictive than allowed by the 2nd Amendment, which states “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

 

And now, most recently, all America heard President Trump state, “I have called for Red Flag Laws, also known as Extreme Risk Protection Orders.”  Regarding background checks, he stated on August 9th, that he thinks “Republicans are going to be great and lead the charge along with Democrats.”

 

One should also note that although President Trump once suggested foregoing “due process” after the Parkland High School mass shooting in February 2018, he did state on August 5th 2019, that “those judged to pose a great risk to public safety (should) not have access to firearms and if they do, those firearms can be taken through rapid due process.”

 

On August 8th, Senator McConnell told NPR that the Senate would be addressing bans on “assault weapons” and expanded background checks, when the Senate reconvenes in September. McConnell’s use of the term “assault weapons” is part of the Democratic Party narrative that seeks to negate the true and legal use of these weapons for self-defense, and it only serves to further erode the Bill of Rights and our liberty if we allow it to go unanswered.

 

Nobody in America wants to see anyone who is mentally unstable enough to commit violence having a powerful firearm in their hands, but there already exist numerous laws, that if properly enforced would alleviate that problem. Peddling his staunch “defender” title in 2015, even President Trump noted: “Too many states are failing to put criminal and mental health records into the system (making the system ineffective). … fix the system we have and make it work as intended … don’t … expand a broken system.”

 

However, unconstitutional Red Flag Laws are not the answer, especially once one considers the many government abuses that have already occurred in the seventeen states (and the District of Columbia) that have legislated Red Flag Laws. They allow police to convene a Chekist-style secret meeting, that strips an American of his Second, Fourth and Fifth Amendment rights and violates “due process of the law”, since the firearm owners are barred from participating in the hearing and presenting their counter argument, and often, they are unaware of the “Extreme Risk Protection Order[USACarry.com and RomanoLawpc.com] until the police knock on the door and ransack their house or arrest or shoot them, just as they shot Gary Willis, in Baltimore, MD, at 5:17 a.m. on November 5th 2018 for resisting their ERPO. [The Epoch Times and New American]

 

Willis was executed for resisting a government overreach, intrusion and violation of his basic God given rights. I guess America could have just skipped the bloodshed of the War for Independence, since so many now seem to prefer authoritarian controls, serfdom and a King over freedom and liberty.

 

Patrick McLaw

 

On August 22nd 2014, Patrick McLaw, a 23 year old middle school teacher — once nominated for Teacher of the Year [Last Paragraph], was taken into police custody for a psychological evaluation, after he wrote two novels about high school massacres, under the pen name “Dr. K.S. Voltaer”. McLaw had no criminal record, no guns or bombs were found in his home, but the State Attorney claimed McLaw drew police attention through a four page letter he sent to officials in Dorchester County. And in the end, no warrant was issued, no charges were filed and no arrest was made, however, he remained detained in police custody, while they investigated crimes he may or may not have committed, as the State utilized psychopathological mechanisms, the touchstone of totalitarian governments, and fully displayed the great distance our society has drifted from liberty.

 

Dave Workman, senior editor at the Second Amendment Foundation in Bellevue, Washington recently wrote: “It’s (Extreme Risk Protection Order) a great idea on paper. In practice, however, you’re guilty until you prove yourself innocent.”

 

A Red Flag Law in Tennessee might even scoop me up, since in my youth, I used to have a hair-trigger temper, cracked many a ridge-runnin’ redneck’s jaw and quite possibly should have been charged with assault myself, at one time or another in my life. No excuses made from me; I am a strictly no nonsense man who never took being called out of my name or having hands placed on me in anger lightly, and in every case where the law ever questioned me, the attending officer agreed with me, for whatever the reason. However, some past recipients of my wrath would certainly be quick to turn such a law against me, even though I am a much cooler head today, years later.

 

But, having a pistol or rifle in my hands always leveled my thinking, whenever I encountered danger and imminent harm, having traveled the most dangerous areas of America, at one time or another. It tamped down any anger, since I have always been all too cognizant of the power of firearms and the damage they can do, my entire life; and, due to my respect for all life, I never wanted to take another person’s life, if there was anyway to avoid doing so.

 

I’ve had a firearm of one type or another in my hands, since I was eight years old, when my father first started teaching me firearm safety, and I received more instruction in the 6th grade at a summer camp at Columbia Military Academy (Columbia, TN), where all the children were handed .22 caliber semi-automatic rifles, in 1969, for a well supervised target practice; and of course, I received further instruction upon joining the U.S. Army years later. Good people raising good children will make for a safer society. Teach your children well, starting with the Ten Commandments, or a similar moral code.

 

If more gun laws worked, Mexico wouldn’t have had 100,000 people killed by firearms in the past decade. It has the most restrictive gun laws one might imagine, and it has only one gun store, that sits in the middle of a military base and has soldiers for clerks. Restrictions on the good and decent citizens, whether in Mexico or America, only favors the criminals.

 

There is also a much more serious issue at hand: If the Constitution can be suspended in a secret hearing, this can only lead to a despotic government and great tyranny. The Democrats have already proposed the forced confiscation of the American people’s firearms and weapons by armed squads of police.

 

What if this publication could be shut down without due process, based on a secret complaint? Or individuals could now be arrested or imprisoned for 21 days, or more? How far off can torture be?  Eroding the Second Amendment in this manner erodes the entire Bill of Rights.

 

Any American who values our rule of law and the Bill of Rights and the inalienable rights that preexist politics and government should be opposing all the new gun control measures coming our way, as we work to keep the legal and justified means of self-defense in the hands of all law-abiding citizens, since not one state law in this respect is constitutional, and a federal law would not be either. Taking away rights from law-abiding citizens due to terrible acts by criminals, a small percentage of the population, is precisely what our Constitutional Republic was designed to protect against and expressly forbids. The legal philosophy behind these laws is dangerously illegitimate, and far from bipartisan or consensus proposals, they represent a constitutional Rubicon and the point of no return.

 

Y’all can give up your semi-automatic weapons if you’re of a mind to do so. As for me, they’ll have to pry them from my cold, dead hands.

An Insane Chain of Events


If you’re a Conservative you are not surprised the Left-Wing Dems are taking political advantage to control the guns acquired and owned legally by Americans. If you are like me these Dem calls for massive gun control is leaving a bad taste in your mouth, BUT after the rapid sequence of mass killings you are also hesitant to take a stand for your Second Amendment Rights. A Second Amendment by the way designed for Americans to defend themselves from an oppressive government if the Constitutional government ever became oppressively unwieldy.

 

With that in mind, Justin Smith handles pretty well how two extremes in America are taking innocent lives and frankly how the Dems ignore their own Leftist extremes to blame all Conservative Americans by putting the face of President Trump on Right-Wing extremists. Which is a bit duplicitous by the Dem-Left because if check some of the source links I provide, you will discover these mass killers were influenced more by Left-Wing thinking than Right-Wing thinking.

 

On a personal note: I have never owned a gun. The last time I shot a gun was target practice with friends at around age 14. Currently I’m 62. I’ve come close to gun ownership largely due to (shh, don’t tell my wife) crazy in-laws. At age 62 I’ve been considering gun ownership again. Why? American politics is so divided I sense clashing civil strife will be a prelude to some form of a civil war that in the 21st century will likely be vicious.

An Insane Chain of Events:

Murders Based On Ideology

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/4/2019 10:27 PM

 

Americans are witnessing an advent of a time, when murders based on ideology will become ever increasingly more prevalent, and, although it is a righteous matter to kill one’s enemies, in the defense of freedom and liberty, our American ideology based on Judeo-Christian and Western principles, the Bill of Rights and our God Given Rights and our Republic, in the face of violence intending to suppress those treasures, absolutely nothing can justify killing another human being simply because of their race. And as I hear the Democrats rail against “white nationalism”, I am left wondering where all their moral outrage was hiding when a black nationalist shot and murdered six Dallas police officers in 2016. Murder is a terrible and reprehensible act, and racially motivated murder is simply pure evil. [Bold text is Editor’s]

 

The only real justification to ever killing another human is in the defense of one’s family, a weaker community member under a violent attack, and one’s self, and some would say one’s property, although the situation would dictate my action in such a case; I can leave it to law enforcement to retrieve my property, but I can never see a loved one come back from death, unless God intervened on my behalf.

 

In an insane chain of events, running from July 28th to August 4th 2019, America has recently had to bury Her dead from senseless murders in Gilroy, California; El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio; a total of 31 dead and 64 wounded. Their murderers were 19, 21 and 24 years old, respectively, and the last two mass murders occurred within fifteen hours of one another.

 

Shortly after the Dayton Shooting, Mick Mulvaney, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, told ABC’s Jonathan Karl: “This was a sick person. … No politician is to blame for that. The person who was responsible here are the people who pulled the trigger. We need to figure out how to kind of create less of those kinds of people as a society and not trying to figure out who gets blamed going into the next election.”

 

Jon Cooper, Chairman of the Democratic Party Coalition, tweeted the following to Vice-President Pence on August 4th: “Fuck you, @VP. Our nation doesn’t want your thoughts and prayers. You and @realDonaldTrump — and congressional Republicans — are complicit in these horrific acts of gun violence. YOUR HATE SPAWNS DOMESTIC TERRORISM BY WHITE NATIONALISTS. The blood of innocent victims is on your hands!” [Blog Editor: I have to comment here on this Dem Party sentiment. There are Left-Wing extremists and Right-Wing extremist who BOTH utilize violence in the name of their agenda and anger. Both sides activate that violence when they hear or read something that will set them off. AND what they heard may be something as simple that normal people would write or vote their political anguish of what was heard from a Progressive (I hate that term for a Leftist who promotes politics that regresses ultimately to totalitarianism) or heard from a Conservative. So, when someone like Cooper spews profane venom toward a Christian Conservative like Pence, what do you think a violent Right-Wing extremist will with that? If a Right-Winger retorts in violence, is it Trump’s fault or Cooper’s fault? Perhaps I should inspire an Antifa Left-Wing extremist and say to Cooper, “Get off your mouth polluted high-horse! Is an Antifa violent response my fault? Trump’s fault? Or Cooper’s fault?]

 

Where was all this rage and fury when a deranged 66 year old Leftist gunman shot five people, at Eugene Simpson Stadium Park in Alexandria, Virginia, on June 14th 2017, including Representative Steve Scalise?

 

Regarding El Paso, President Trump tweeted: “Today’s shooting in El Paso, Texas, was not only tragic, it was an act of cowardice. I know that I stand with everyone in this Country to condemn today’s hateful act. There are no reasons or excuses that will ever justify killing innocent people.” And after the Dayton attack, Pres. Trump tweeted: ” … information is rapidly being accumulated in Dayton” noting that law enforcement response “was very rapid in both” Dayton and El Paso, as he added, “God Bless the people of El Paso Texas. God Bless the people of Dayton, Ohio.”

 

Many of our youth today are reaching adulthood believing that the foreign and antithetical Marxist ideology of communism and communism light, i.e. socialism, are attractive alternatives to the Constitution and free market capitalism, and they adhere to the communist adage of eventually implementing it “by any means necessary“, including violence, thanks to 80 years of socialist indoctrination in the public education system. Today’s violence is a reemergence of the 1960s violence of the Black Panthers and Students for a Democratic Society, as seen through Antifa, Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panthers; except now, some youth, who see themselves as “conservatives” and defenders of the American culture, are answering in kind and for reasons based in fallacies, with a flawed understanding of conservatism.

 

With that said, there was some real truth offered in the El Paso shooter’s manifesto. He wrote, in part: “… America is rotting from the inside out, and peaceful means to stop this seem to be nearly impossible. The inconvenient truth is that our leaders, both Democrat AND Republican, have been failing us for decades. They are either complacent or involved in one of the biggest betrayals of the American public in our history. … America will soon become a one-party state. … They [the Democratic Party] have already begun the transition by pandering heavily to the Hispanic voting bloc in the 1st Democratic Debate. They intend to use open borders, free healthcare for illegals, citizenship and more to enact a political coup by importing and then legalizing millions of new voters.”

 

However, for the most part, this manifesto was a confused jumble that mixed communist and capitalist ideologies, especially towards the end, when he espoused Malthusian depopulation of the planet and sustainable development. More than any “Trump supporter”, his “manifesto” read more like an ANTIFA member wrote it, and gibberish.

 

According to many on the Left today and exhibited in numerous acts of rioting and violence in America, since 2014, some statements are equivalent to an act of violence, especially if they target socialist pet projects like “affirmative action” and “welfare”. Using their twisted logic, if there isn’t any difference between words and action — if “Oppressive speech … is violence” as noted by Nobel Prize author Toni Morrison — and the use of violence can be exonerated if done in the name of “the right ideas”, then the El Paso shooter would have been in the right, if only he hadn’t targeted innocent civilians and he had targeted those officials he believed to be responsible for our situation.

 

After the deadly incident at Charlottesville last August, the white supremacists were condemned for their violence, by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, but not even a peep of condemnation was ever directed towards the extremely violent Antifa, which evidently was using force for “the right reasons”.

 

The Left and Antifa have long adopted the philosophy that an argument is as bad as a fist, so a fist is as good as an argument, and currently, the Alt-Right embraces that same philosophy. Antifa hates the profit-seeking corporations and wants an all-powerful, authoritarian socialist state, ruled by the proletariat. The Alt-Right hate immigrants and racial minorities and advocate an all-powerful fascist state, ruled by white nationalists. Both hate capitalism and our system based on the primacy of the individual, independence and individual rights — the system that opposes collectivism — the system that rejects the initiation of force and the system that has historically always legitimately stood against the Left and its inherent tyranny.

 

If the evil of insane, indiscriminate mass shootings is ever to become a thing of the past, whether one is a Christian or not, Americans must return to the teachings and early principles, that were based on solid Judeo-Christian principles, simply because they teach people to be good and righteous. The value of reason must also be upheld, along with a respect of each other’s right to believe as they wish and speak their minds, so long as they do not step on another’s same rights or infringe on one’s liberty, without any just cause based on a criminal act. [Bold text by Editor]

 

Whatever their reasons, the fact that all three targeted innocent civilians makes all three shooters the worse kind of evil, despicable, and reprehensible of cowards, who are surely all on their way to busting the Gates of Hell wide open … although the live one’s final judgement day is still a bit far off.

 

As Mulvaney would later add: “There’s no benefit here trying to make this a political issue. This is a social issue.”

 

But anyone paying attention full well understands that along with the mentally ill, who are a part of the equation and dynamics, this absolutely is a political issue. One half the population is determined to eradicate the Constitution and the Founding principles in favor of anti-freedom authoritarian socialism and tyranny, and the other half is more than determined to defend our beloved America’s Founding Principles and freedom and liberty at any cost. And this cannot be resolved without one side or the other deciding the other side is actually right and giving up the fight. The nation must largely choose one path or the other — Unite —  because it cannot serve two different and antithetical ideologies and remain a republic; and without a peaceful solution, the nation will see great civil strife and, in due time, civil war. [Bold text Editor’s. Justin’s thoughts bring to mind the words of a great American and the words of the Savior of humankind:

 

A house divided against itself cannot stand.” I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved — I do not expect the house to fall — but I do expect it will cease to be divided.

“It will become all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the further spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the belief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction; or its advocates will push it forward, till it shall become alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new — North as well as South.” – Abraham Lincoln June 16 1858

 15 But some of them said, “He casts out demons by [a]Beelzebub, the ruler of the demons.”

16 Others, testing Him, sought from Him a sign from heaven. 17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls. 18 If Satan also is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? Because you say I cast out demons by Beelzebub. 19 And if I cast out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast them out? Therefore they will be your judges. 20 But if I cast out demons with the finger of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you. – Jesus the Christ the Son of God found at Luke 11: 15-20 NKJV

A Right Granted Us By God


One of my biggest concerns about America today is the erosion of Liberty envisioned by the Founding Fathers. This erosion is being exacted by the American Left dedicated to transforming the USA into a State controlled socio-political culturally humanist paradigm. This means the termination of Religious Liberty, Free Speech, Free Thought and the Right to Self-Defense that America has experienced largely thanks to the political institutions set into motion by America’s Founders.

 

In this editorial Justin Smith looks inalienable Right to self-defense that exists not because of a man-made document, but rather exists by the Will of God.

A Right Granted Us By God

Gun Control Laws Are Illegitimate

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 2/25/2019 8:47 PM

 

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns, and water because one may drown in it; that has no remedy for evils except destruction. The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.” ~ Cesare Beccaria, 18th Century Italian jurist

 

American culture and this society have become so pusillanimous, that they have incredibly fought to tamp down and suppress the God-given right to the lawful act of self-defense and bearing arms to properly defend one’s person, family and property. More often we see both Democrats and so-called Republicans urging some manner of control over people already doing everything right, with the Democrats offering the harshest measures. It is as if they somehow imagine that limiting law-abiding citizens’ right to keep and bear arms will stop criminals and gun violence, which is akin to cutting the horns off a water buffalo as an answer to lion attacks.

 

Not the federal government, not the state governments, not any majority group of voters and certainly not any government official, elected or otherwise … none of the aforementioned have any legal authority to impede or infringe upon anyone’s God-given right to keep and bear arms, by any means or any measure or any arbitrary “rule” they color with the illegitimate use of the word “law”. A right granted Us by God as seen through Natural Law cannot be legislated out of existence.

 

[Blog Editor: On a personal I lean to the belief in the existence of Natural Law: viz., Law originating from God. But in full disclosure concepts of Natural Law and Natural Rights philosophically have a bit of controversy. So here are some titles to stretch your mind – perhaps you can locate yourself:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

America currently has numerous states from California to Hawaii, Illinois and Vermont to Washington, New Jersey, Florida and Oregon trying to limit their citizens’ right to bear any weapon of the same sophistication as the U.S. military carries. Normally reticent as I am to quote the Supreme Court, as an example, due to its judicial activism, it is important to note that even the Court held this to be a God-given right that pre-exists government and the Constitution, in the majority ruling on Heller v. District of Columbia 2008. [Blog Editor: Bill of Rights Institute summary]

 

And yet, one more of the most egregious gun “laws” has just reared its ugly head in Ohio, without any more understanding of the Constitution than other pieces of legislation that have done nothing in L.A., New York or Chicago to stop gun violence.

 

Ohio House Bill 228 [PDF download] passed in December 2018, and it was largely intended to clarify when shooting someone in self-defense is legally justified; however, due to a HUGE drafting ERROR by the Legislative Services Commission and a misplaced provision regarding the Mossberg Shockwave shotgun, thousands of people will be turned into instant criminals overnight when this bill takes effect on March 28th 2019.

 

Dean Rieck, head of Buckeye Firearms Association, had worked closely with legislators on this legislation. He observed that many bills were flying about at the time, with Democrats firing off their own amendments and lobbyists and protesters adding to the chaos. The confusion of the day made an environment ripe for human error.

 

While everyone involved is saying this was an “honest mistake”, it is highly suspect that it occurred during a lame-duck session of the state legislature. Even more suspect, the error wasn’t caught, until after the bill was passed. This just shows how incompetent or devious leaders of the day can be.

 

Who were the proofreaders? Who signed off on the final draft?

 

Don’t lawmakers read a damn bill these days, before signing it? Obviously or conveniently not.

 

On March 28th 2019, any firearm of at least twenty-six inches and approved for sale by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms under the Gun Control Act of 1968, that is somehow not regulated under the National Firearm Act (NFA) of 1934, will be classified as “dangerous ordnance”. This turns an AR15, a thumbhole stock rifle, flash suppressors and other cosmetic features into dangerous ordnance and a felony to possess.

 

I submit that even a tax on firearms is illegal and unconstitutional, since it too carries an impediment of sorts to owning weapons. And here one must note, the NFA was held to be constitutional as a tax revenue measure. No entity has ever stated the federal government, or any government, has the power and authority to ban firearms of any type; this also is equally applicable to ammunition.

 

Many citizen groups and activist leaders, such as Jeremy Deter, have joined in protests, that forced the legislators to take heed and move for an immediate emergency fix, after initially stating they would have to wait 90 days before they could do anything. The Ohio State Legislature met on February 19th to enter a fix, at the urging of Senator Kristina Daley Roegner, who took a stand for the citizen groups, who introduced Bill 53. And predictably so, Democrats are now pushing back against any fix, as they contend no damage to firearms owners’ rights will result from Bill 228 as written, despite proof to the contrary.

 

Regardless of just how much damage it will or won’t do, without the proper correction to the error, the new “law” will be UnConstitutional as written, anyway one wishes to view it.

 

One option is to fix the error in the state budget, which will be introduced March 15th and passed into law on July 1st. This delay was called “unacceptable” by Chris Dorr, director of Ohio Gun Owners.

 

Senator Cecil Thomas, a retired police officer and a Cincinnati Democrat, noted that this all results from rushing through legislation in a lame duck session. Thomas said, “It’s just a bad way of doing business now, and mistakes are made …”.

 

Addressing the legislators, Eva Silvers, an advocate for the Second Amendment, called the law “unconstitutional” and exclaimed: “You took a constitutional oath to protect the people of this country. Will you enforce an unconstitutional law?”

 

Understanding the gun-grabbers will do everything in their power to keep this egregious “law” on Ohio’s books, calls have one out across the nation to meet on March 28th in an armed protest at the State Capitol Building. Ohio is currently an “open carry” state, and the reason for having the protest the day after the bad law goes into effect, is to show it is an unenforceable law. But, they are also getting county sheriffs on their side, who have already acknowledged they do not plan to enforce it as it stands, and if the fix is passed in the meantime, everybody will still meet on the State Capitol steps in Columbus, in celebration.

 

The Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The Second Amendment helps Americans defend and protect Our Life and Liberty, and that makes me happy.

 

All patriotic freedom-minded Americans must rush to the aid of their countrymen in Ohio and any and all the other states and stand firm, tough and ready in the face of illegitimate and illegal legislation, by way of all manner of protest and petition.

 

Wherever Our God-given Rights, the Bill of Rights and the Second Amendment are under heavy assaults by those who seek not to govern, over a sovereign nation of Free Born Americans, as their fellow patriot and brother in Liberty, seeking instead to rule as their lord and master, in a manner that reduces all to serfs of the state, We cannot allow it — We must not allow it, for it bears the name “tyranny”, and it will not reign over my children, their children and their children’s children, so long as there remains breath in my body, a rifle in my hand.

 

“The right to bear arms has always been the distinctive privilege of freemen. Aside from any necessity of self-protection to the person, it represents among all nations power coupled with the exercise of a certain jurisdiction. … It was not necessary that the right to bear arms should be granted in the Constitution, for it had always existed.” ~ John Ordronaux, Constitutional Legislation in the United States 241-242 (1891)

A God-Given Right That Preexists Government


Justin Smith examines the Right to self-protection is God-given and hence gun ownership for protection cannot be overridden by any law manufactured by human hands.

 

The opinion is sure to chap the hides of the Left seeking to disengage all things of the Biblical God Almighty from the Rule of Law and American cultural thinking. I for one refuse to believe my existence upon physical death dissolves into an amalgamation atoms and molecules into the material world. I’ll trust in God’s Word in Salvation and eventual resurrected life into God’s Kingdom in Christ Jesus the Savior.

 

As to the usefulness of a bump stock for protection of Life, Liberty and Property: the I see the American Left manufacture law by Judicial fiat rather the consent of the governed or redesign existing law to the detriment of the governed, the more I sense Americans will embark on a new Jeffersonian Declaration of Independence from a tyrannical Left:

 

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. (YOU should really read entirety)

A God-Given Right That Preexists Government

 

By Justin O. Smith

If the American people don’t like firearms and the Second Amendment, for any reason, it isn’t the President’s place to limit or regulate any firearm or accessory by executive order, as President Trump recently did with bump stocks that accelerate a rifle’s rate of fire. It is up to the people to repeal the Second Amendment, if they really desire the removal of a negative right that limits what the federal government can do against them. That is the only legitimate recourse. [Blog Editor: Lawsuit in the works]

Even then, any action against the Second Amendment wouldn’t negate or abolish our God-given right to self-defense and to bear any weapon for that lawful purpose, under Natural Law and as acknowledged by the Supreme Court in 2008. A majority of sovereign individuals cannot legitimately take away or abrogate the God-given rights of any one sovereign individual.

 

[Blog Editor: I highly support the concept of the “sovereign individual” yet only in the context Judeo-Christian faith. I reject most of the ideology of the Sovereign Citizen Movement as inimical to representative government that lead to terrorism inflicting chaos on the community of citizens who wittingly or unwittingly themselves to the social contract of representative government. AND although I reject the idiotic extremist ideology of Sovereign Citizens; if or when the government bypasses the interest of the Represented (i.e. We The People) violating Rights created by the Creator, then sovereign individuals can resist the government along terms articulated by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence. Those terms do not vacate government taxation unless the taxation is levied without the consent of the governed. AND those terms insure the Rights of individuals to band together to protect God-Given Life, Godly-Liberty and legitimately acquired Property. And for clarity’s sake – that is my interpretive opinion. Full disclosure my opinion is not absolute though I feel valid:

 

 

 

 

The federal government absolutely does not have the right and authority to regulate our God-given Right to possess and carry any weapon for the Lawful purpose of Self-Defense. And neither do the states.

In Heller v District of Columbia in 2008, the Supreme Court acknowledged that our right to keep and bear arms was a God-given right that preexists government and the Constitution and went further, stating individuals could own weapons of the same sophistication and technological advancement as the military.

States are able to so readily infringe on our right, by demanding permits and fees and such, and have made their illegitimate and illegal acts de facto law, because the people have allowed it; but the states’ might-still-does-not-make-right and neither does ANY majority vote that seeks to vote away a God-given right as seen in Natural Law and God’s Creation. These laws have stood simply because people have been too afraid of their government to push back against them, as individuals, and/or as an entire people, they have lacked the political will up until the most recent years. [Blog Editor: Interesting PDF entitled. “Influence of the Natural Law Theology of the Declaration of Independence on the Establishment of Personhood in the United States Constitution,” 2008]

I say carry when and if one wishes, anytime. If everyone did this, the law couldn’t arrest the nation. And those who do get arrested should question the authority of the State to do so, on the Constitutional grounds of the Second Amendment. Eventually the Supreme Court will be forced to recognize, so long as a person isn’t committing any crime with his firearm, he has the right to have it on him, anytime, regardless of whether he or she is black, white, red, yellow, brown or pink.

ANY “Law” restricting one’s right to carry a firearm is No Law at All and Should Be IGNORED And REPEALED.

I fault any president who doesn’t understand our founding and its principles thoroughly enough to articulate the same position I just did. Instead, we have had a long train of presidents who, despite their on-the-record campaign statements, have seemed all too willing to go along with the illiberal tyrannically bent Democrats and their activist judge lackeys in their machinations to disarm Americans at every opportunity. And that’s just the plain facts of the matter … no hyperbole here.

Kid Pulls Knife on Woman and Demands Sex, So Man Pulls Gun on Kid and Teaches Lesson


Alis Muntain

 

The title of this Conservative Tribune article reads like the beginning of a bar joke:

 

Kid Pulls Knife on Woman and Demands Sex, So Man Pulls Gun on Kid and Teaches Lesson

 

It’s no joke. It is a good reason for 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.”

Kid Pulls Knife on Woman and Demands Sex, So Man Pulls Gun on Kid and Teaches Lesson

CBS47 VIDEO: Woman threatened with knife at

[Blog Editor: If the embed works on my blog you’ll never this is the hugest embed code I have EVER seen. Then again if doesn’t work, you’ll never know either. It is seriously too long. The url is just as long but thanks to tiny url the short link is embedded in the video title.]

 

A Florida woman says she was saved by a good guy with a gun after a teen pulled a knife on her in a store and demanded sex.

 

WJAX-TV reported that a 14-year-old was arrested after the incident at a Walmart in Fleming Island, about 20 miles southwest of Jacksonville, earlier this week.

 

“I am convinced that I would’ve been stabbed had it not been for the divine timing of another customer walking by who just happened to have a concealed carry license,” Alis Muntain wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday.

 

“I was making a quick run to get cat food and litter. My arms were so full that I was sitting in the aisle contemplating whether I wanted to put it down and search for a cart when a teenager (15-17) approached me. I thought he was going to see if I needed help, but then he asked how old I was.

 

“A bit confused by the question, I just assumed he needed help himself and wanted to verify that I was an adult. I hesitantly replied with my age. He then said ‘I want you to have sex with me. I have a knife in my pocket.’, proceeding to pull out his pocket and show me that there was indeed a knife there. I blinked, paused, and then said ‘Are you aware that we’re on camera?’”

 

He said he was. Muntain told him she wanted to make him “aware that I have a husband and a THREE year old son waiting in my car for me. They will be looking for me soon.”

 

Even after all this, she said, the teen continued to insist that she follow his orders.

 

“RIGHT at that moment, a man walked across the end of the aisle behind the teenager,” Muntain wrote.

 

“I have no idea how I had remained (at least visibly) calm to this point. Keeping my voice light, I called out ‘Excuse me sir, could you help me?’ as the boy turned to see who was behind him.

 

“Thinking I was talking about my still full arms, he said ‘sure’ and turned towards me. As soon as he took a step, I stated: ‘This boy has a knife and is threatening to use it on me if I don’t have sex with him.’”

 

After confirming what was happening, the man told Muntain to get help, she said.

 

“By this point, I was about 8-10 feet away, so I turned and RAN, screaming for help. I didn’t know the man had a concealed weapon that he pulled on the boy, who then proceeded to run after me. At the end of the aisle, I veered left. running into an entire display of plastic bins and losing my glasses, but he went right. He ran out of the store, but eventually was caught by police after pulling a knife on them as well,” she wrote.

 

“I firmly believe that if that man hadn’t walked by when he did and had his gun on him, things could’ve gone VERY differently. It still doesn’t feel real. I’m so grateful that he was placed in my path at that moment, and that he was exercising his right to bear arms. I always figured that was a slim possibility at my school, but never at a Walmart in Fleming Island. You literally never know …

 

“I’m safe, guys,” she concluded. “I just figured this was a story that should be shared, because it truly emphasized the importance of utilizing your freedom to keep yourself and others safe. I’m not trying to cause a huge debate, just offering some food for thought.”
