Stay Armed – Stay Free

Gun Control: Unacceptable, Unconstitutional and Morally Reprehensible 

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent March 4, 2021, 12:03:50 AM CST

 

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 — pages 241-242 (1891)

 

Americans’ lawful right to keep and bear arms for self-defense has been under attack, since 1963, when Senator Thomas Dodd’s push for gun control, culminated with the Gun Control Act of 1968, and in part, a prohibition of firearms “with no sporting purpose”, despite the clear language in the Second Amendment and the fact the Second Amendment was created to ensure the American people would always have a tool at their disposal, to fight any future tyrannical government, not for sporting use or hunting. The sad reality remains, that as long as we have Communists gaining seats in the House and the Senate, our inalienable God-given right to keep arms, for any reason we wish, will be targeted for suppression, as seen under H.R. 127, a new bill recently proposed by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), that is tantamount to the most tyrannical gun control bill ever proposed.

 

Democratic Communists such as Lee and Joe Biden seem not to understand the words “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”, as a negative right that explains what the government cannot do to the American people, and while Biden has explained he views the Second Amendment as limited, in no way can he find any valid or legitimate justification for limiting our individual right, so described in Heller v. DC, to keep and bear arms; the U.S. Supreme Court noted in 2008, that this was an individual inalienable God-given right, that preexists the Constitution itself and government.

 

In other words, they could eradicate the Second Amendment tomorrow and our right to bear arms would be constant and intact, if only a bit less safe from their infringements and suppression; but nevertheless, nothing any so-called majority passes as “law” can ever eradicate any Inalienable God-given right such as this one. It does not represent an actual legitimate “law”, when it violates or attempts to eradicate an Inalienable God-given Right, since legitimate law must act righteously and proactively to preserve, safeguard and defend all people’s Inalienable God-given Rights, in a manner that prevents their suppression.

 

The Second Amendment is the only amendment without any qualifiers, that state one may bear arms “IF” they do one thing or another, like get a state or federal license or permission, precisely because the Founders had just experienced what happens under a brutal enemy and the aggressive confiscation of arms; and they vowed such would never happen again in America.

 

Any federal or state legislation that intends to create a law that suppresses or abrogates our inalienable right to keep and bear arms, to wipe it from existence, is unacceptable, illegal, unconstitutional and morally reprehensible. By that same token, so too is any “law” that requires a tax, license or any other requirement that smacks of forcing honest, decent people to seek the Master’s permission to carry a firearm or any other weapon, for the legitimate and lawful purpose of one’s self-defense. This is our right as seen in nature and created by God.

 

And yet, this means nothing to them all, as they revisit this issue, time and time again, knowing it is the one major stumbling block between them and total power over all they see, the American people, America proper and all Her resources and wealth. They care nothing for what is righteous and true.

 

This bill would require all firearms owners to undergo a psychological exam and a list of firearm owners that would be open to public access, among other egregious illegal and unconstitutional dictates. Among its demands are included: A federal licensing system for firearms and ammunition must be created by the U.S. Attorney General, that is overseen by the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco; gunowners must provide the make, model and serial numbers of their firearms, their name and where the firearms will be stored; individuals must complete a training program and pay an $800 “fee” for liability insurance coverage as a firearm owner; and it would ban .50 caliber and larger size ammunition and magazines that hold more than ten rounds.

 

Failure to comply with this bill would hold up to a $150,000 fine, with a $75,000 minimum fine, and/or a fifteen years minimum prison sentence. Just violating the ten-round minimum for magazines and the ban on .50 caliber or larger ammunition alone comes with a $50,000 minimum fine and/or a ten-year prison sentence.

 

More deaths have been caused by the books Mein Kampf and Das Kapital than by firearms here in America. Are we going to start licensing and confiscating books too? Oh … wait … Dr Seuss, where are you?

 

Many pundits have suggested H.R. 127 stands little chance of passing in the Senate, due to the 60-vote threshold to get out of committee, but these are the same people who said Hillary would win in 2016 and Trump would win in 2020, so excuse me if I’m not relieved by their assurances and prognostications, especially with so many current Republicans-In-Name-Only, such as Senator Mitt Romney, prancing about like a loose legislative cannon. Too many Republicans have shown far too much willingness to cross party lines, even on issues critical for the country, ala John McCain-style.

 

This is just for starters, since it’s not a secret that Biden and his Communist minions long for total gun confiscation. If they keep getting their way, through the slim margin in the Senate, with the phony “vp” Kamala as the tiebreaker for any 50 to 50 split, that attempt won’t be too far off in the future. And God help America should they ever succeed.

 

Given their natural proclivity for authoritarian government and tyranny, it wouldn’t be too far removed from the realm of reality to see the Democratic Party Communists and the Usurper-In-Chief Joe Biden use the psychological evaluation section of this legislation, should it pass, in conjunction with Leftist calls for de-programming Conservatives and “right wing extremists” and “white supremacists”, to target any dissent against their own anti-Second Amendment extremism. They could even use these “evaluations” to confiscate the firearms of people who oppose them on other issues or are identified as supporters of President Trump. After all, it isn’t like the Democrats aren’t already well-known for abusing power, whenever it’s in their hands, and far too many of them already disingenuously suggest that any firm advocacy and defense of our rights to keep and bear arms is in and of itself, domestic terrorism, by way of their imbecilic, irrational reasoning.

 

Biden and his Commie Crew want a world where thoughts and known political views are made into crimes. They advance and promote themselves and their hack “experts” as being able to determine if someone is predisposed to commit a crime, while they move to remodel America after the Minority Report, a fictional story that presents us with a police state that can foretell whenever someone is about to commit a crime.

 

[Blog Editor: This post centers on the 2nd Amendment to resist a tyrannical government. The Minority Report concept actually applies to more than gun-grabbing. Think about when Dem-Marxist despotism labels Natural Law, Moral Law, Individual Liberty as crimes and the steps to prevent those labelled crimes:

 

 

 

 

And, now that Big Box Stores, Corporate America and Big Tech are out in force for the Biden Marxist agenda, we would also see an intense program of cooperation between these entities and the Biden Regime, as the registration data would be made available to the public. [Blog Editor: The irony of State/Big Business cooperation in history was seen in Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy. Essentially a corporate Communism currently also practiced by the CCP in China.] Yes, one would still see the occasional 3 a.m. SWAT raid on some poor, unsuspecting citizen whose only crime was not accounting for every single firearm or submitting an ammo count that was shorter than records indicated. But, for the most part, this new hysterical Cancel Culture Mob would use this data to target Conservatives and Christians, and anyone else who draws their ire, to be blacklisted, banned, fired from jobs, and even have your credit and utilities cut-off.

 

These Democratic Party Communists are prepping right this minute to ensure that people who love America and hold Her Founding Principles as dear and righteous will be unable to pay their mortgages, send their children to universities or by new appliances and pay a car note, or essentially care for their families in any normal and traditional sense. And, as the Department of Homeland Security is flagging people such as Us [Blog Editor “Us” = We The People] as “domestic terrorists” for the moment, no one should expect too much help from their local television station, as they will have been warned off.

 

America, as a society, has allowed the “progressive” Communist Democrats within the U.S. government to repeat so many false narratives concerning our rights and firearms over the decades, that a cloud of wrongdoing hangs over all society regarding the right to keep and bear arms. The false Democrat assumption and premise presumes that anyone carrying a firearm must be a bad individual looking to commit a crime or an incompetent individual not to be trusted with his personal firearm, unless he has a little card issued by the State saying otherwise. Gun laws preclude “innocent until proven guilty” and make honest, decent Americans into criminals, no matter the reason they have chosen not to get a “permit”.

 

As I wrote in a September 2019 article:

 

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 law enforcement who do understand the full import of their oaths, they will stand with freedom and liberty first.”

 

Although Biden is also suggesting that gun violence has become a “health crisis” for our country, let me simply state that anybody around me doesn’t have to worry about their health, life, money or anything else, so long as they treat me with proper respect and don’t try to rob or harm me and mine in any way. I’ll not infringe on any of their rights. And my firearms ensure they sure in the hell aren’t going to infringe on mine, should all other legal mechanisms fail Us.

 

Reject this proposed H.R. 127 piece of trash tyranny and Biden’s push towards exponentially more authoritarian government.

 

Those Americans who love freedom and liberty will refuse to obey or comply with the diktats and demands of this legislation, if it actually passes Congress, and most of Us will take a hard stand together, en masse and armed, to place an exclamation point on the fact that we are unwilling, as Free Born Americans, to be subjugated by this emerging hardline Marxist Regime under Dictator Joe. We know this is not a time for weak responses and compromises, in the face of so egregious an act against our rights, for if they are allowed to succeed in the abrogation and suppression of our right to keep and bear arms, none of our other rights will survive and their path to ending the Republic will be wide-open, for them to do as they will.

 

Nobody wants to hurt anybody, not unless they are criminally inclined, and most people never do, since they simply desire to get on with their lives and provide for their family. However, the Biden administration’s consistent advance on this path will make him responsible for causing a situation primed for violence and many forthcoming deaths, as the result. Speaking only for myself, I won’t hesitate to shoot any federal agent coming to illegally confiscate my firearms, especially if he even looks like he’s thinking about drawing his firearm from its holster, while on my property.

 

Should anyone try to separate me and my firearms, they’d better pack a lunch, ’cause I aim to make it an all-day job … and then some.

 

I aim to stay armed and free. You should too.

 

In the meantime, … Carry On … pun intended.

The Battle Lines Are Framed


Ayn Rand – the author of the brilliant novel Atlas Shrugged – was not a paragon of Christian virtue. BUT she was born in Czarist Russia and raised in Lenin’s Soviet Union. Born with a Russian name she managed to immigrate to the USA changing her name to Ayn Rand.

 

Rand developed a character in Atlas Shrugged by the name of John Galt. Galt’s character enlists America’s self-reliant/innovative individuals to withdraw from the grip of government tyranny and Corporate cooperation with government tyranny to collectively control the lives of Americans.

 

All the men who have vanished, the men you hated, yet dreaded to lose, it is I who have taken them away from you. Do not attempt to find us. We do not choose to be found. Do not cry that it is our duty to serve you. We do not recognize such duty. Do not cry that you need us. We do not consider need a claim. Do not cry that you own us. You don’t. Do not beg us to return. We are on strike, we, the men of the mind.

 

“We are on strike against self-immolation. We are on strike against the creed of unearned rewards and unrewarded duties. We are on strike against the dogma that the pursuit of one’s happiness is evil. We are on strike against the doctrine that life is guilt.” (Excerpt from John Galt’s Speech from Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged”; Posted by Administrator at The Burning Platform; 2/1/21. Galt’s speech is lengthy as is Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged)

 

Galt’s leadership in civil disobedience begins to bring tyranny to its knees peacefully. Atlas Shrugged was fiction yet Americans who cherish their heritage bequeathed by their Founding Fathers are facing in truth Dem-Marxist tyranny with the cooperation of America’s wealthy major Corporations to control lives, thoughts and actions. Before WWII in Italy this was called Fascism. In the same time frame in Germany this was called Nazism. Fascism/Nazism are forms of Communism that have enlisting Corporate elitists to enforce a variant of Socialist-Marxism stealing individual Liberty and the inalienable Right to choose good rather than evil.

 

Justin Smith shares a path that essentially is a GOING GALT but suspects the bloodshed of a civil war is inevitable. I suspect a civil war is a good prediction. WHY? The Dem-Marxist paramilitary wings of Antifa and BLM have already violence against Americans and their property to instill fear. Couple this with the current ongoing military purge of Officers and the Ranks of those sympathetic to the American heritage upheld by Conservatives probably means Patriot civil disobedience will be met with uncivil violence.

The Battle Lines Are Framed

There Isn’t Any Political Solution

 

By Justin O. Smith

All I ever wanted was to live free with an abundance of Liberty, for me and my family, and to be left alone, in the Pursuit of Life, Liberty and Happiness. And now that it is all facing a perilously evil tyrannical government, all I feel much like doing is loosing my blade (or MK47) to do my talking, so my voice will resonate with the sound of striking iron and my words will ring out in a mighty cry of war and righteous anger unleashed, for my right, our right, to live free.

 

In their pursuit of phantom “domestic terrorists” in the ranks of Conservative America and in our Church and schools, these Democratic Party Communists will soon have created that which did not previously exist, through their own actions and attacks upon all that is righteous and true in our world. Our people see a new age for Us, in the evil reflection of the Communists eyes, filled with fear, even as the gloat over what they have recently accomplished, and we are beating our plowshares into swords, that hunger to dance the furious, fierce dance of the maddest ronin, or the angriest of Highlanders of our Colonial Army.

 

[Blog Editor: Justin Smith is not exaggerating! Examine these musings on emerging CCP Joe criminalizing dissent to Dem-Marxism:

 

 

 

 

 

America has entered a new, dark realm, and the Democratic Party and its figurehead leader, a Communist appeaser and an illegitimate “president”, having seized power, is revealing itself to be the greatest existential threat to America, that we as a nation and a people have ever faced. Although many people are willfully blind to this fact, many more Conservative, Christian and independent Americans have awakened to the fact, as we see our borders flung wide-open, our election laws subverted and the Biden administration Communists move to purge conservatives and Christians from government and the military, along with ending our right to keep and bear arms. This has left many Americans wondering, just how to respond, in the face of such a rapid coup and power being consolidated in the hands of Marxists and Maoists, who hate America.

 

The Democratic Party Communists currently have presented legislation, that will virtually ensure their lock on power for many years to come. Look at however one may wish, we have a cancerous mass of evil that has grown in our country, the Democratic Party, that seeks to subjugate and impoverish every Free Born American man, woman and child.

 

The For the People Act (H.R.1) codifies many of the heretofore illegal voting mechanisms like third-party ballot-harvesting and mail-in voting; it also makes it illegal to ask if anyone presenting a ballot is a legal U.S. citizen, thus opening the door for millions of illegal aliens to cast a vote. It also facilitates more election fraud by seeking to use online registration and automatic registration, without any paper back-up to ensure the information isn’t bogus. And while there remains many more troubling aspects of this bill, it essentially amounts to an unconstitutional federal takeover of elections and a premeditated destruction of State governments. Also, one should note, it seeks to make D.C. a state.

 

Joe Biden and his Communist Handlers sent the U.S. Citizen Act of 2021 to Congress, for the supposed purpose of making “immigration safer” but it essentially will give citizenship to some 20 million plus Illegal Aliens (closer to 40 million depending on the statistics one reviews), whose ranks are largely comprised of people from Central and South America who made their way here over several past decades. His “smart border” controls are basically no control and more Open Borders, as he has already signed an executive order ending the building of President Trump’s Wall, along with another EO to allow “refugees” on the Mexican side of the border to enter America and reside here, while they await approval for asylum. And all of this is designed to turn Texas into a Democratic voting bastion, which will make it virtually impossible for any Republican to win another national election.

 

More Democratic Party Communist tyranny rears its ugly head, through Representative Shelia Jackson Lee who has placed H.R. 127 before Congress to eradicate our right to keep and bear arms. This out-of-control, UnConstitutional, catastrophe of a bill is designed solely to dismantle our rights to own firearms. Reading through its diktats that require psychological exams for all gun owners, a federal licensing system for all firearms and ammo to be overseen by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives, liability insurance, banning certain calibers and ammunition clips holding more than ten rounds, along with many more vile illegal diktats, it is readily apparent that this is the most dictatorial piece of trash ever put before the Congress of the United States of America.

 

[Blog Editor: Here is eleven short minutes of your life explaining how Rep. Sheila Jackson and her cadre of Dem-Marxists will use H.R. 127 to disarm American resistance in the same manner their uncle Hitler removed dissent in pre-WWII Germany:

Posted by MRCTV

Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) has introduced HR 127, a bill that not only echoes, but amplifies, the gun registry Hitler used to confiscate firearms in Nazi Germany. https://www.mrctv.org/blog/sheila-jackson-lees-hr-127-bill-will-create-mandatory-federal-gun-registry-and-more]

 

One should also make note of the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act (H.R. 350), that focuses on “white supremacists” — which means any white person who opposes the “progressive” Democratic Party and Joey Biden’s agenda for the end of our Republic — and “racially motivated violent individuals” … HhMmmmm … a perfect description of their own foot soldiers of Black Lives Matter. And as I have previously noted, the Department of Homeland Security immediately started focusing on “right-wing domestic terrorists, Christians and conservative militias” as far back as the Obama administration, so revamping old policy was a snap, as soon as Biden gave the nod.

 

And now, even more disgusting, Biden has directed Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin to purge the ranks of the military of “all extremists”, as it is seemingly suggested that good men and women cannot be expected to uphold their oaths to the Constitution, bearing in mind that each of these people underwent fairly extensive background checks before ever being accepted into the military. But the mindset of the new Democratic Party under its Marxist and Maoist guidance is basically, “if you aren’t with the ‘progressive’ (and cancel culture) agenda, you’re against us”, and couldn’t have been more apparent than when Representative Steve Cohen suggested, just prior to Inauguration Day 2021, that the white male members of the U.S. Army could not be fully trusted to defend “president” Biden, since most of them possibly supported President Trump. While it’s unlikely Austin would not have initiated this miserable, insulting operation in more sane times, the U.S. military has been hell-bent on ridding itself of imagined “white supremacists” from the days of Obama to the present, as the military’s upper-echelon ranks of officers was purged of conservative military men and a new command enamored of Marxist Communist ideology replaced them; and, as we all know, the definition of “white supremacy” has become as elastic as a bungy-cord, with even most of America’s Founding Fathers painted as a white supremacists, as it is essentially a slur thrown at anyone opposing Biden, Harris, AOC and the Squad and the Communist machine that’s the driving force behind them.

 

Plain as night and day, Biden and Harris and Company are politicizing and weaponizing the U.S. Federal Government to be their tool against Conservatives and Christians and any political opponents in the country, and they are moving to use force and coercion most foul against U.S. citizens, acting more like an Occupying Force determined to stamp out The Resistance, wherever they find it.

 

With the past weak performance of Republicans, whenever they actually held the majority in both houses of Congress, no one should expect them to offer much in the way of any real opposition to the Democrats’ agendas. Many place a false hope in Rep Joe Manchin (D-WVA) as a possible saving vote, on critical issues, but with very few exceptions, when push comes to shove, he has always stood with his Democrat Caucus; and, with “vice-president” (focus on VICE) Harris as the tie-breaking vote, America is in deep trouble, in light of the aforementioned proposed pieces of legislation, acting in tandem with Biden’s destructive Executive Orders.

 

And now that they have framed the battle lines, resist we must, as we move through our communities to gather like-minded defenders and supporters of America’s Founding Principles, to demand of local elected officials that they must reject any federal mandate coming from the Biden administration that circumvents or attempts to abrogate the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. We must still try to fight in the Courts, even though many are beyond corrupt and in the tank for the Marxist/Maoist progressive communist ideology and all its garbage, so detrimental to Freedom and Liberty. Wherever they move to limit our Inalienable God-Given Rights, they must be met with the fiercest resistance ever presented anywhere, and whenever it is blatantly obvious a legislative panel or judge is with the Communists and our rights are infringed upon, we have a duty and an obligation to ourselves and our families to refuse to comply with any such illegal acts.

 

The stolen election has in effect moved America significantly closer to one-party rule, but everybody knows that with a heavily weighted political movement currently favoring the Democrats and a push towards authoritarian socialism, the nation is essentially being ruled by the interest groups and the Communists who currently have the Democratic Party within an iron grip. The Republican Party is pretty much done for, in the short term, as so many “Republicans” have proven themselves to be Republicans-In-Name-Only, when they abandoned the American people and joined in the denunciation of President Trump, the supposed “insurrectionist”. The new evolving power structure is one comprised of Traitors and Cowards.

 

And in the meantime, America is positioned to collapse on all fronts, whether one addresses the economic, political, social, military or moral components of our current plight and numerous dilemmas. Every institution across the nation is corrupt, and when America finally collapses, oh what a collapse it will be, heard across the world.

 

Biden’s Communist Machine will continue using its Leftstream media contacts to grow its own soft power and shape popular “moral authority”, while they simultaneously move to enforce their hard power through aforementioned acts and policy. Using social pressure from the Marxists, Maoists, socialists, fascists and anarchists and the politics of exclusion and Cancel Culture, the malleable Joey Biden will use every law enforcement agency, the ATF, FBI, DOJ and Homeland Security to please his Masters and pursue their goals against Conservative America. And, unless the Conservatives who still stand for Freedom and Liberty and America’s Founding Principles can quickly rebuild soft power through political representation and full access to the mainstream, avenues that are already being closed down by the Communists in control, violence is the only path left open to Us for the future and our survival. There isn’t any political solution left, and anyone paying attention already knows this.

 

Two antithetical ideologies — one based on Marx and Mao and tyranny and serfdom opposed to the other and Our Founding based on Freedom and Liberty — cannot coexist in America; and, it is to our nation’s shame and disgrace that we as a people have allowed this evil to grow and take root across our land.

 

However, even if many Americans aren’t yet ready to take up arms against an Illegitimate Government, Our Countrymen have it in their power to drag Biden’s administration and every “progressive” Communist State’s government to a grinding halt — to Starve the Leviathan — and win this fight one transaction at a time. Every Christian Conservative and freedom-minded Independent must withdraw their consent — Good and Decent Americans Must Withdraw OUR CONSENT — to be governed by these Communists and their figurehead, Dictator Joe, and we must make it impossible for them to enforce their illegally obtained power against us, noting that they can’t punish people they can’t identify as “criminals”. Each of us has a different life circumstance, financial capability and constraints, but everyone can contribute something to toppling these communist despots, as wage this guerrilla warfare against an advancing dystopian world.

 

Spend only on absolutely necessary items and deprive the State of sales taxes; buy from local retailers and Mom & Pop stores, rather than Big Box stores; don’t buy from Amazon; leave Facebook and Twitter for good and go to platforms that don’t censor; leave Google and use something like Peekier.com, while also canceling Netflix and Amazon Prime; boycott any organization associated with BLM and the Critical Race Theory; learn to do electric and plumbing ourselves, or some other practical skill; grow our own food where possible (hydroponics even?) and deny the mega-food industry our business; barter and trade with local farmers, or pay cash, for meat, eggs, milk, etc. and if we actually need to hire contractors for something, find locals who will often give discounts for cash that need not be reported to the government; only frequent family-owned restaurants and always pay in cash since it allows the owners control over what they do with it, and credit cards absolutely ensure a portion will go to the government; withdraw any money in a Big Name Bank/ Wall Street Bank and place it in a Credit Union; don’t borrow for anything unless it’s an absolute emergency; reduce driving — not for the environment — to deny the State gasoline taxes and toll revenue; find alternative safe means of communication with allies; and don’t wear a mask or get the experimental DNA altering Vaccine Jab, as We All RIDICULE THOSE WHO DO.

 

Throw sand in the gears of government at every turn in the road, wherever it’s bent on suppressing our Inalienable God-Given Rights. And that can entertain a broad spectrum of Civil Disobedience. 

 

There are so many more things every individual can do, to stop these Control-Freaks and Evil Communist and GLOBALIST Tyrants from ending Freedom and Liberty in America, without automatically resorting to armed conflict, until that actually becomes our Last Resort. So, You can pretty well see where I’m going with all of this.

 

The Democrats make a fine show of wanting to talk peace and understanding, and yet, they only understand the language of the sword. As such, they are crowding Conservative America to a point that we must make the Democrats understand their chosen path leads to their own downfall. And time and time again, we have told them to leave us and our beloved ones in peace, but they only understand coercion, force and the language of the sword.

 

All cogent-thinking, rational, peace-loving individuals are placing hope against hope that a non-violent path is still possible for the two opposing political sides, but never content to let anyone live unmolested by their illegal, unconstitutional edicts, mandates and diktats, their arbitrary whims based in nothing remotely concerning “the Law”, these Communists will not stop, nor rest, until they have suppressed every Inalienable God-Given Right we hold dear, and no one will be left unscathed. The ballot will not restore America or save Her. If America is saved by Her Patriots, it will now most certainly come at a heavy cost and a great letting of blood in civil war. 

 

Everyone is free to decide just how much more Freedom and Liberty they are willing to sacrifice in the name of “peace”, while an out-of-control Marxist/ Maoist government demands it all, and by the same token, decide as a matter of one’s own conscience just how they will resist the coming madness and exactly what they are willing to do to stop it. But if they persist in infringing on my rights, our rights, bringing damage and harm to my property, person and family, America’s Families, I say kill them where they stand and leave their rotting carcasses along the roadsides and in the parking lots, stacked ten feet deep and ten feet high, all about one and in all directions for as far as the eye can see, even if I must fight ’til my own last dying gasp … so help me God.

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.

BLOG EDITOR: I’ve apparently been placed in restricted Facebook Jail! The restriction was relegated after criticizing Democrats for supporting abortion in one post and criticizing Virginia Dems for gun-grabbing legislation and levying protestor restrictions. Rather than capitulate to Facebook censorship by abandoning the platform, I choose to post and share until the Leftist censors ban me completely. Conservatives are a huge portion of Facebook. If more or all Conservatives are banned, it will affect the Facebook advertising revenue paradigm. SO FIGHT CENSORSHIP BY SHARE – SHARE – SHARE!!!

Gun Control: The Die Is Cast  

Free Americans Don’t Submit to Tyrannical Fiats

“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.

When So Few Defend Liberty


A little over two weeks ago Justin Smith penned “Liberty Violated” to quite angrily protest the USMCA mirror of NAFTA. In that submission I concurred with Justin that the USMCA was just as wicked for America as NAFTA was but I was defensive for President Trump so I entitled the piece “An Intro to ‘Liberty Violated’” to include my Pro-Trump stance. If you wander into the comment section, you will discover Justin was quite a bit less than pleased with my Pro-Trump commentary.

 

I learned today that both the House and Senate have overwhelmingly passed USMCA legislation that merely awaits a Trump signature to become law. THAT SADDENS ME! Because I still believe the plusses outweigh the minuses when it comes to Trump versus the Commie Dems. BUT Justin is correct, the USMCA will challenge U.S. sovereignty and the U.S. Constitution when the long run comes into view.

 

I am amazed on the blindness of pundits and legislators who call themselves Conservative yet are quite supportive of the USMCA. A good example of this blindness can be read at The Epoch Times of all places which lists all the short term benefits economically benefitting various Americans but totally ignoring the long term pitfalls the USMCA holds for the USA. The article is entitled, “Senate Passes USMCA Deal, Sending It to Trump’s Desk”.

 

ALSO Justin touches on the Counter-Constitutional gun-grabbing efforts proceeding in Virginia and Colorado.

 

Justin is correct in his belligerence in that the America envisioned by our Founding Fathers is disappearing. We Americans are like frogs placed in a pot of water not realizing that as the water begins to boil, we will be dead to Freedom and Liberty already.

When So Few Defend Liberty

When No One Else Will …

 

By Justin O. Smith

Freedom and liberty no longer matter to Democrats or Republicans, both of whom are showing themselves all so willing, all the more willing, to sell America piece by piece to the highest bidder, and individual liberty and national sovereignty be damned, as they collect their 30 pieces of silver at the expense of the American people.

 

You get the government You vote for, and our society is so damned CORRUPT that all we have today is RAMPANT CORRUPTION Throughout States and Federal Government DESPITE ANY “GOOD INTENTIONS” of the Trump Administration — some of which one must certainly doubt given recent developments and the continued massive spending bills, among other items.

 

The U.S. House of Representatives led by the Democrat Majority passed the national sovereignty killing United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement [USMCA text dated 12/13/19] created by the same Obama negotiation team that attempted to pawn off the terrible Trans-Pacific Partnership on America, and just today, the U.S. Senate Republican Majority passed it.

 

All that remains is President Trump’s signature, which is sure to follow, since, for inexplicable reasons other than he just wanted to see something “Big” pass, he has touted and backed this miserable bill from the start.

 

Now we see an anti-American and tyrannical Democratic Party led majority in the Virginia State Legislature ramming anti-Second Amendment legislation — UNCONSTITUTIONAL Firearm Bills and “rules” — through the legislature against the will of the majority of Virginians, in a manner that can only be described as tyrannical.

 

And similarly, we also are witnessing similar “gun control laws” either passed, as in Colorado, or moving in many states like Georgia and Florida, “laws” that penalize normally good and decent Americans, while making matters better for criminals.

 

More and more often, We — the American People — are put upon, lied to and abused by elected officials who act more like Iran’s Supreme leaders, like absolute rulers held unaccountable and answerable to no one, and if no one else is sick of it, I’m here to say that I’m damn good and sick of it.

 

Between these self-important self-aggrandizing petty tyrants and the all-powerful black robed tyrants who are even worse, VIOLATING the Constitution at will with impunity and no repercussions or consequences, our freedom and liberty is slowly being ripped away from us all, little by little, step by step.

 

Each of You is free to follow Your own conscience, and I intend to follow mine, but I absolutely will not obey ANY illegitimate UnConstitutional law handed down from any government entity or agency or bureau, whether anyone fights it and repeals it or not. If they get repealed, GREAT! If they don’t, I don’t give a good damn, since I don’t answer to tyrants and their arbitrary fiats colored as “law”.

 

I aim to do just exactly as I please from this point on, and the government can go to hell. They’ve broken any semblance of a “social contract” too many times over to the point that the Constitution no longer limits, controls or impedes their arbitrary and dangerous assaults against the U.S. Bill of Rights and Our God Given Rights. And, I will set out each day meaning no harm and doing no wrong, and as such, a Free Born American, I will expect to be left alone and to my own devices, free from any government contact.

 

Some will call me “outlaw”. I name myself a “Free Born American” fully entitled to hold, protect and defend my God Given Rights WHEN NO ONE ELSE WILL, or at least so few in government are barely even trying to defend them.

 

When the system fails us, when elections no longer matter, and tyranny is gaining ground and taking the day, it’s past time to Water the Tree of Liberty with the Blood of Tyrants.

 

God Bless the American Patriots and Their Families and God Damn the United States Government, as it currently stands. May He Damn America’s Enemies Both Foreign and Domestic to the Hell They Have Earned and So Richly Deserve.

 

And May God Help the American Patriots to Keep America Free for All Eternity.

Red Flag Laws and Tyranny


Justin Smith again tackle the potential tyranny that will evolve under Dem Party gun-grabbing Red Flag Laws. Some good background to this post is Justin’s article from 8/12/19 entitled, “The Rush Towards Tyranny”.

 

I completely agree with Justin in today’s political Left vs. Right climate. The Right stands for the traditional interpretation of the U.S. Constitution and the implications behind the Declaration of Independence coupled with Christian concepts of Natural Law. The Left – regardless of any FAKE Constitution support – desires to toss the Constitution in favor of a Multiculturalist Socialist (really Marxist) society controlled by an elitist government that tells YOU what to believe and how to act.

 

The Dems are using the epidemic of mass shootings to realize their essentially totalitarian dream government tentacles in everything.

 

Conservatives had better find a Liberty protecting solution to mass shootings OR end up living in the Dem dream.

Red Flag Laws and Tyranny

Americans Must Draw a Blood-Red Line in the Sand

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/14/2019 5:31 PM

 

Outrage and fear are being used by representatives and Senators to attempt to strip away God-Given Rights and rights supposedly safeguarded by the Bill of Rights, specifically the 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendments, and the 14th Amendment and due process, through Red Flag “laws”, and they are exploiting recent mass shootings and the shock of Americans to browbeat and coax them into relinquishing some of their liberty to achieve greater safety, liberty that will be lost forever. And if they succeed, firearm restriction tentacles will spread across this once free nation, choking it, and eventually enslaving America’s children on the land of their ancestors.

 

Once any government gains a certain power or suppresses a right, it is an uphill battle to ever reverse that situation, since today the government’s interest, with the House in Democrat hands, and Senate Republicans complicit, lies more in growing its power more so than in protecting American’s rights. They are certainly making good use out of this current “crisis” and the notion of “Ordo ab chao” — “order out of chaos”.

 

One should recall that the Constitution was written by our Founders to preserve individual God Given Rights and Liberty and to limit the government oversight of those rights and liberty. Enumerating our God Given Rights in the Bill of Rights makes it clear that our Founding Fathers were determined to keep the government from interfering with these rights that belong to each and every American today.

 

The mass shootings in Gilroy, El Paso and Dayton were horrific and as terrible a thing as one never wishes to see happen again in America, but one is more likely to die accidentally falling from one’s front porch with a cup of coffee in their hand, than they are likely to be killed in a mass shooting.

 

In their rush for power and greater control over ‘We the People’, our so-called leaders simply ignore facts. Legal gun ownership had nothing to do with these murders. Our society’s descent into moral depravity and indifference to human life led to these horrific murders. None of the numerous laws across America that regulate firearms, in one manner or another, prevented these murders, but this is a point that Congress seems unwilling to acknowledge.

 

For anyone needing to place blame, there is blame enough to go around on many fronts. The most obvious is in the homes that failed to properly nurture, educate and guide these young men properly. Look no further than leftist policies that eroded the core of families in America, through nonsense like “it takes a village to raise a child” in their attempt to make children look to government as their most important benefactor and protector. Look at the efforts to erase God from the public square and the lives of everyday ordinary Americans, through federal government overreach and tyranny across most recent decades.

 

In the wake of the mass shootings, Ivanka Trump went to Instagram and posted a note, that called on Congress to “enact Red Flag Laws/Extreme Risk Protection Orders [ERPO] in every state, increase resources dedicated to mental health support nationwide and close background check loopholes.” She couldn’t have been more wrong than when she also referred to this action as “common sense reform”. [Blog Editor: The embedded links in the quote are added by the Editor.]

 

Regardless of the horror of what we see unfolding today, Ivanka Trump and people of similar intent are dead wrong, when they seek to impede and infringe on our Second Amendment, and rather than “common sense reform”, these proposals represent sheer ignorance and idiocy and an assault on our Second Amendment Rights. Rather than impede the God Given Right of every U.S. citizen to defend themselves with a firearm, Ivanka and her ilk should be working day and night to ensure that the Second Amendment, an inalienable right, remains inviolate and free from federal government overreach and tyrannical suppression.

 

Similarly, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is exhibiting the same exact ignorance and idiocy, and in a fervor of rare bipartisanship, McConnell and all the Democrats and many traitorous Republicans-In-Name-Only are all wound up and ready to be set loose, like puppets or mechanical dolls. McConnell recently stated, “But what we can’t do is fail to pass something. By just locking up, and failing to pass, that’s unacceptable”, marking a significant departure from his past position on firearm controls and legislation in the wake of the mass shootings.

 

NO! What is “unacceptable” is any more DAMNED infringement on Americans’ RIGHTS in a thinly veiled move to tighten the noose of federal control around the necks of law abiding Americans, while criminals go largely unchecked. Rather than pass one more law aimed at good and decent Americans that suppress their Second Amendment Right, leaders should be urging all the states to rescind any state law that illegitimately and unconstitutionally suppresses this right and ensure that any citizen can walk the streets of America with a firearm at their side, if they so wish to do so.

 

Americans don’t need more “Gun Free Zones”. They need to be left alone and allowed to “keep and bear arms” just as the Founders intended — in and outside their home and in public — and they need to be able to defend themselves and shoot back, if and when such a situation may arise. And then, not only would we see the Good Guys win more often, we would see many sad, tragic murders prevented.

 

Spouting BULLS**T that sounds exactly like some sort of strategic totalitarian philosophy, these politicians on both sides of the political aisle are poised to remove the only obstacle between United States citizens and globalism and the New World Order, since they and their predecessors have already greatly diminished the United States Constitution over the past seventy years or so.

 

McConnell, Schumer, Blumenthal, Pelosi and every God D**ned anti-American godless Commie self-made Son-of-a-Bitch running for the Democratic Party presidential nomination are now using the same bullshit and strategic totalitarianism that has been used for decades to create a generation or two of ill-informed, ignorant masses of people within the American culture, expand the federal and state government welfare programs and keep Americans in a perpetual psychotic state of discontent through Hollywood “elites” and the so-called “mainstream media” mental midgets. Americans have been persuaded to abandon their vigilance to the principles that made America exceptional from its inception.

 

The affirmation of rights derived from natural law, honesty, morality, self-reliance and equality of opportunity; in stark contrast and opposition to modern America’s identity politics, politically correct censorship and thought control, equality of outcomes, fiscal irresponsibility and unlimited government.

 

Is it any wonder that one would certainly look at these “leaders” new proposals with great suspicion? Now they once again demand the consent of the governed, the people’s consent, to willingly restrict our God Given and Constitutional Rights, on whose behalf. Doing so certainly doesn’t benefit me in any way, and it certainly will not make “The Children” any safer.

 

Take note that Benjamin Franklin stated: “Those who would give up essential liberty, to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

 

Unfortunately, President Trump seems to be on board and supporting Red Flag Laws, even if he has walked back his support for federally legislated Red Flag Laws and suggested these were laws the states needed to address. Whichever the case that is closest to Trump’s true intent, Red Flag laws would allow just one neighbor to lodge an unsubstantiated complaint, that someone “might do something”, or to “see something” and “say something” that would enable law enforcement to confiscate all of one’s firearms, without any legal hearing whatsoever. Not only does this violate the Second and Fourth Amendments, it cancels any presumption of innocence and negates due process of the law.

 

Judge Andrew Napolitano is an expert on the U.S. Constitution, who has written nine books on the Constitution, and he phrased it succinctly and cogently:

 

” … Red Flag laws are unconstitutional. The presumption of innocence and the due process requirement of demonstrable fault as a precondition to any punishment or sanction together prohibit the loss of liberty on the basis of what might happen in the future.

 

In America, we do not punish a person or deprive anyone of liberty on the basis of a fear of what the person might do.

 

The government can no more interfere with the Second Amendment rights than it can infringe upon any other rights. If this were not so, then no liberty — speech, press, religion, association, self-defense, privacy, travel, property ownership — would be safe from the reach of a fearful majority.

 

That’s why we have a Constitution.”

 

Criminals don’t obey laws. Citizens don’t require further restrictions. Emotions don’t trump Constitutional Rights. Gun Free Zones aren’t safe. Federal and state Red Flag Laws don’t save lives. And the federal government doesn’t grant us our rights.

 

The astounding proposed and existing Red Flag Laws are merely one more warning sign, a gurgling gasp, in America’s desperate fight to ward off tyranny, representing the “final straw”. Any defeat along these lines means no Constitution, no United States, since they essentially break the social contract and the implied consent of the governed will have been torn asunder, by its own leadership and their inability to facilitate and promote the necessary elements for liberty, such as self-reliance, responsibility and morality. So long as such laws remain on the books and suppress our rights, politicians and all Americans will be less safe, and ultimately, historians and many Americans may look back on this moment and rightly view it as a time that Americans should have drawn a blood-red line in the sand.

 

At the core of these laws one finds only tyranny.

Until My Last Dying Gasp


President Trump has drawn back a bit on his support for the NRA in reaction to the recent Parkland Massacre in which 17 people (students & adults) were killed by an ex-student of the High School Nikolas Cruz. Second Amendment proponents view this as a betrayal. Justin Smith shares his feelings on the issue.

 

On a personal level I believe something must be done to protect soft targets (like schools, but there are many more soft targets) from terrorism and nut jobs. HOWEVER, gun confiscation or restriction is NOT the solution. I won’t delve into alternative solutions here, but I will state my largest concern about gun control that will affect in law abiding American.

 

Especially due to Obama weaponizing government agencies – including law enforcement and intel agencies – I have zero trust in government to not force some unwanted way of life down my throat. Gun control will lead to tyrannical totalitarianism. Justin Smith’s thoughts below should warn of future potential government tyranny that begins with gun control.

Until My Last Dying Gasp

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent March 2, 2018 7:18 PM

 

Let me be as clear as I can be. I don’t give a good damn how many Americans have died in recent shootings, when their lives are placed next to the liberty of millions of Americans, for generations to come. President Trump and Democrat and Republican senior senators, those who beamed at the prospect of exerting greater gun control during their February 28th meeting, seemed to forget that so many more lives have been saved by the right to self-defense, as they attacked the Second Amendment, due process under the law and individual liberty; and regardless of any new illegitimate and unconstitutional “law” they may implement, through coercion or “might makes right” action, they will still be wrong and spitting in the faces of the Founders and the American people.

 

Today’s criminals are nearly always armed with semi-automatic weapons, so police are not the only ones who need AR-15s. Criminals victimize the public, and if citizens are to stand a fighting chance against criminals, they too need effective weapons.

 

However, America now finds itself saddled with a Trump administration, which is not so different from a Clinton administration on the Second Amendment after all. Trump endorsed the “assault weapons” ban, background checks for private sales at gun shows and raising the age for purchasing firearms to twenty-one. He also contended Congress was “petrified of the NRA”, as he tore into fellow Republicans as tools of the NRA and handed Democrats a propaganda victory.

 

As Katie Pavlich, journalist and Fox News contributor, recently noted [Outnumbered Video], despite the AR-15s popularity, data from Homeland Security shows that handguns are the weapon of choice when it comes to mass shootings. She also stated: “And let’s not forget that during the church massacre in Texas … it was an NRA-certified instructor who used an AR-15 to stop the killing … “.

 

During the case of District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court stated that the right to self-defense pre-existed government, which had already been confirmed by U.S. v. Cruikshank in 1875 and never overturned. The court went further in Heller, and it articulated the right of the individual to use firearms, that are at the same level of sophistication as firearms one’s potential adversary might have, whether that person is a criminal bad guy, psychopath or a soldier of a tyrannical government. And this must negate any attempt to ban semi-automatic rifles, even those deemed “assault weapons”.

 

The suggestion to raise the age limit is a non sequitur argument, and once again, a punishment of law abiding Americans. Age is not indicative of good sense or good moral character. Timothy McVeigh was in his late twenties when he bombed the Murrah Federal Building and the Las Vegas shooter was sixty-four. Aside from this, guns aren’t the problem any more than age can denote one’s mental stability, or lack thereof.

 

Forty-eight years ago at the age of thirteen, I would often walk through the main streets of Dixon, Missouri, with my twelve gauge shotgun slung across one arm and on my way to the fields and backwoods trails to shoot wild hogs, and I would happily wave at the police and sheriff’s deputies, as they drove by. No one thought this to be anything unusual.

 

Mental illness and its role in gun violence was also part of the discussion, and President Trump revealed his despotic side, when he explicitly denounced due process of the law, saying: “… take the firearms first, and then go to court … because a lot of times, by the time you go to court, it takes so long to go to court to get the due process procedures, I like taking the guns early … take the guns first, go through due process second.”

 

Who deems these people dangerous? the government? family? friends? It takes more than just one assertion, one allegation, and it must receive due process consideration, as guaranteed by the Constitution. Otherwise, the mere accusation of mental illness might become a subterfuge to disarm thousands of normal people, perhaps political opponents, by any future administration.

 

Trump’s far left suggestion to grab guns without legal cause was radical, idiotic, fascistic and unconstitutional. Such a comment from any Democrat president would have resulted in armed stand-offs with the police, calls for impeachment and a fury from the American people hotter than a thousand 100 megaton nukes exploding.

 

Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was the only Republican to openly oppose President Trump, as he stated: “Strong leaders don’t automatically agree with the last thing that was said to them. We have a Second Amendment and due process of the law for a reason. We’re not ditching any Constitutional protections simply because the last person the President talked to today doesn’t like them.”

 

At what point are Trump’s supporters going to hold him accountable for his outlandish statements? At what point will they stop excusing him?

 

God forbid that America should ever descend into real tyranny, however, Trump’s remarks show precisely the reason America must not allow the Second Amendment to be eroded. Modern history is replete with examples of fascist and communist regimes that exterminated a combined total of 160 million of their own people, between 1940 and 1980 [Closest citation I could in cursory search], and, in light of our own early history under the British, it is ever more important for Americans to retain the right to possess modern semi-automatic weapons, to ensure that our government never feels it is more powerful than its citizens.

 

Foremost among our unalienable rights, the Framers of the Constitution recognized our right to life and to defend life — one’s self, one’s family and one’s property — by ratifying the Second Amendment. They wrote the amendment understanding that it did not grant this right and the right to self-defense was not dependent on that instrument for its existence. It was written to ensure that all future U.S. governments would respect the right to keep and bear arms, as a natural extension of the right to self-defense, in natural law and God’s law, standing alone and independent of the Constitution.

 

President Trump is a damned dangerous fool, and anyone who seeks to undermine our right to self-defense and to keep and bear arms for lawful purposes, through Trump’s proposals, isn’t a friend to the American people. Those who seek added “security”, in any manner other than targeting the criminals, who mock our existing gun laws, rape laws, robbery laws and homicide laws, only ensure security will not exist, our liberty will be eroded, and we will cease to be a free people. And for everyone who thinks Trump and his fellow despots are right, you can relinquish your rights like sheep, and I’ll keep and defend my God-given Rights Until MY LAST DYING GASP.
