Will YOU Save Freedom? Catch The Tea Party Wave

 

"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."


Much ado about nothing has been made of the first stanza of the 2nd Amendment by anti-gun people.
A well regulated (well trained and well armed) militia (every man and or woman who is physically able and also a citizen), being necessary to to the security of a free state, (the right to protect your freedoms, your property, your safety, your rights, state's rights), the right of the people to keep and bear arms, (notice it says the right of the PEOPLE, not the militia), shall NOT be infringed. (not by the Federal Government, not by State's Government, not by ANYONE unless convicted of a felonious crime by a court of law).

"No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." (Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution)
"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves...and include all men capable of bearing arms." (Richard Henry Lee)
"...to disarm the people - that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." (George Mason)
"Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." (James Madison, The Federalist Papers #46 at 243-244)

This is also confirmed in the Freedman's Act of 1866, where Congress affirmed that newly freed slaves'  right to keep and bear arms could not be infringed by the several states.  If Americans did not have the right to keep and bear arms, and if this did not include the states, why would Congress confirm that ex-slaves' rights could not be infringed by the states in the Freedman's Act?

Which arms can the People own?   According to both George Mason and James Madison;
"The People shall have arms equivalent to that of what any infantryman can carry on his person."

As we enter the home stretch of this year's critically important election, two things are certain: First, the winner of the election will have a profound effect on your Second Amendment rights, and second, it's crucial that you know where the candidates stand on the Second Amendment so that you can make the right choice.

One thing we do know: Barack Obama continues to be a serious threat to gun owners. When it comes to Obama's stance on our Second Amendment rights, you need to be fully informed about what he has said and done during his entire political career.

The Illusion of Safety

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 – by Ron Paul
 
Dr. Ron Paul

Recent incidents of violence in Norway and London have made us understandably uncomfortable here at home, as many fear that a worsening economy will lead to violence and unrest in American cities. This is why Congress must view the economy as its first priority and a matter of national security: unless and until we get our fiscal house in order to foster economic growth, civil society will continue to deteriorate.

The fundamental lesson every American should learn from these incidents is that government cannot protect us. No matter how many laws we pass, no matter how many police or federal agents we put on the streets, a determined individual or group can still cause great harm. Both Norway and England have strict gun control laws, and London in particular has security cameras monitoring nearly all public areas. But laws and spy cameras are useless in the face of lawless mobs or sick mass killers. Only private individuals on the scene could have prevented or lessened these tragedies. And we should remember that theft, arson, and property damage were not the only criminal acts in London – innocent bystanders were assaulted and killed as well. In those instances deadly force used in self-defense would have been fully justified.

Perhaps the only good that can come from these terrible events is a reinforced understanding that we as individuals are responsible for our safety and the safety of our families. This means, frankly, that we must safely own and use firearms to deter or prevent criminal assaults on our homes and persons. It is absurd to think police or government agents can protect 310 million Americans around the clock.

Thanks to our media and many government officials, however, Americans have become conditioned to view the state as our protector and the solution to every problem. Whenever something terrible happens, especially when it becomes a prominent news story, people reflexively demand that government do something. This impulse almost always leads to bad laws, more debt, and the loss of liberty. It is completely at odds with the best American traditions of self-reliance and individual responsibility.

Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, and metal detectors? Do we want to imprison every disturbed or alienated individual who fantasizes about violence? Do we really believe government can provide total security? Or can we accept that liberty is more important than the illusion of state-provided security?

Freedom is not defined by safety. Freedom is defined by the ability of citizens to live without government interference unless they use force or fraud against others. Government cannot create a world without risks, nor would we really wish to live in such a fictional place. Only a totalitarian society would even claim absolute safety as a worthy ideal, because it would require total state control over its citizens' lives. Liberty has meaning only if we still believe in it when terrible things happen and a false government security blanket beckons.

DICK ACT of 1902




DICK ACT of 1902... CAN'T BE REPEALED (GUN CONTROL FORBIDDEN) -
Protection Against Tyrannical Government
Submitted by Jonathan on Sun, 03/29/2009 - 2:04pm.
The Dick Act of 1902 also known as the Efficiency of Militia Bill H.R.
11654, of June 28, 1902 invalidates all so-called gun-control laws. It
also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities.

The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia,
henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and
District of Columbia, the unorganized militia and the regular army. The
militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and
45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal
right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as
many as they can afford to buy.
The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills
of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross
violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The
President of the United States has zero authority without violating the
Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State
borders.


The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National
Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to
uphold the laws of the Union; to suppress insurrection and repel
invasion). These are the only purposes for which the General Government
can call upon the National Guard.
Attorney General Wickersham advised President Taft, "the Organized
Militia (the National Guard) can not be employed for offensive warfare
outside the limits of the United States."


The Honorable William Gordon, in a speech to the House on Thursday,
October 4, 1917, proved that the action of President Wilson in ordering
the Organized Militia (the National Guard) to fight a war in Europe was
so blatantly unconstitutional that he felt Wilson ought to have been
impeached.
During the war with England an attempt was made by Congress to pass a
bill authorizing the president to draft 100,000 men between the ages of
18 and 45 to invade enemy territory, Canada. The bill was defeated in
the House by Daniel Webster on the precise point that Congress had no
such power over the militia as to authorize it to empower the President
to draft them into the regular army and send them out of the country.
The fact is that the President has no constitutional right, under any
circumstances, to draft men from the militia to fight outside the
borders of the USA, and not even beyond the borders of their respective
states. Today, we have a constitutional LAW which still stands in
waiting for the legislators to obey the Constitution which they swore
an oath to uphold.


Charles Hughes of the American Bar Association (ABA) made a speech
which is contained in the Appendix to Congressional Record, House,
September 10, 1917, pages 6836-6840 which states: "The militia, within
the meaning of these provisions of the Constitution is distinct from
the Army of the United States." In these pages we also find a statement
made by Daniel Webster, "that the great principle of the Constitution
on that subject is that the militia is the militia of the States and of
the General Government; and thus being the militia of the States, there
is no part of the Constitution worded with greater care and with more
scrupulous jealousy than that which grants and limits the power of
Congress over it."


"This limitation upon the power to raise and support armies clearly
establishes the intent and purpose of the framers of the Constitution
to limit the power to raise and maintain a standing army to voluntary
enlistment, because if the unlimited power to draft and conscript was
intended to be conferred, it would have been a useless and puerile
thing to limit the use of money for that purpose. Conscripted armies
can be paid, but they are not required to be, and if it had been
intended to confer the extraordinary power to draft the bodies of
citizens and send them out of the country in direct conflict with the
limitation upon the use of the militia imposed by the same section and
article, certainly some restriction or limitation would have been
imposed to restrain the unlimited use of such power."


The Honorable William Gordon

Gun Rights Advocates Plan Lawsuit Against Open Carry Law 

<http://capoliticalnews.com/2011/11/01/gun-rights-advocates-plan... 
by Stephen Frank on 11/01/2011  
  Jerry Brown has  decided the Second Amendment no longer counts.  As he puts 52,000 known  criminals back on the street, local cops are being fired. Unless folks can carry a gun,or the criminals think you might have a  gun, we will become the clay ducks in a shooting gallery–except there is  no prize for being dead.
 Remember, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.  Glad  to see some are willing to go to court to protect our rights from  criminals, inside and outside of government.
 Second Amendment or else.

Hr 522 all out war on our gun rights in as i write please contact all to kill bill

Your National Association for Gun Rights has been warning you that H.R. 822 is a Trojan Horse.

Just today, Republicans helped pass an amendment that orders the Feds to investigate the “safety” of mail-in CCW permits from states like Florida, Utah and New Hampshire.

If you possess a NH, FL or UT permit, the Feds are going to investigate if these permits are “safe.”

So-called “pro-gun” Republicans even KILLED an amendment that would have allowed permit holders to defend themselves in the District of Columbia, one of the most dangerous cities in the country.

Over the past two days, amendments have been offered to require REAL ID-type government requirements on state CCW permits as well as giving Eric Holder the power to classify even more gun owners as “terrorists.”

And while these amendments may have failed in the House, Harry Reid’s Senate is sure to put the screws to gun owners.

The Senate DOES have the votes to impose a HOST of anti-gun amendments to H.R. 822 much like they have done with legislation in the past.

While the institutional gun lobby has put its full support behind H.R. 822, gun owners just cannot afford for them to play poker with our gun rights.

I have listed the phone numbers for every Republican on the Judiciary Committee below. Please make as many calls as you can expressing your displeasure with H.R. 822, but do it quickly before this monster gets even worse.

Subject: Urgent action needed




I’m calling it the National CCW Registration Act.

While the idea that all states should recognize a concealed weapons permit is sound public policy, the use of the anti-gun federal bureaucracy to implement it is simply foolish.

Can I count on you to take action RIGHT NOW? Rep. Lamar Smith is the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee that will hear H.R. 822, the National CCW Registration Act.

I need you to call House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith and make clear that you want to keep the government’s hands off your permit and that you are opposed to federal intrusion into the concealed weapons permit process.

Once the federal government is in the business of setting the standards for concealed carry permits, it’s only a matter of time before they start using that power to restrict our rights.

Now you may hear arguments that this bill doesn’t do that, and maybe that’s true... for now.

Even worse, once this bill starts moving, anyone can amend the bill with anything... and no legislation can bind a future Congress in any way.

That doesn’t count what Obamacrats in the Department of Justice might dream up as the “regulations” to carry out the legislative “intent.”

Gun owners have enough trouble with Republican-run Executive branches implementing the law improperly. Does anyone really think the Obama Administration is going to treat gun owners fairly?

I know many of you are frustrated that you can carry in some states but not others -- I’m frustrated, too.

I carry concealed every day, everywhere I go, and have worked to expand the ability of citizens to carry in dozens of states.

I believe I should be able to carry concealed -- without a permit -- in all 50 states. That’s what “bear arms” means. Believe me, that’s a long-term policy goal for the National Association for Gun Rights.

But mark my words, H.R. 822, the National CCW Registration Act, will become nothing more than a Trojan Horse for even more federal gun control.

I understand that many who support this bill sincerely just want their right to carry respected -- but cannot due to the fact that their state or another won’t do the right thing.

But the devil is truly in the details... and the details are where H.R. 822 gets sticky.

This bill isn’t just about the right to carry for self defense -- it’s a battle over the role of government and the ability to restrict our Second Amendment rights.

Once gun owners let the Obamacrats start mandating whether states recognize permit reciprocity, they will want to mandate what it takes to get and keep those permits.

We’re talking about 
More onerous standards to acquire a permit, so that only FBI agents can pass muster (look at New York’s permit system); 
Higher fees; 
More training requirements; 
A demonstration of “Need” for a permit; 
More frequent renewal periods; 
Federally-mandated waiting periods; 
A national database of all permit holders, accessible by Attorney General Eric Holder; 
An extensive, federally-created list of Criminal Safezones, where only criminals will carry and where law-abiding gun owners are vulnerable; 
The list of potential problems is endless. 
I need you to call House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith at (202)225-4236 and make clear that you want to keep the government’s hands off your permit and that you oppose federal intrusion into the concealed weapons permit process.

I haven’t even mentioned that this legislation would shred the Constitutional Carry provisions that are on the books in Arizona, Alaska, Vermont and Wyoming.

It doesn’t stop with just concealed carry. They’ll co-opt the bill to expand the national Brady Registration Check system to block military veterans with PTSD or individuals with misdemeanor convictions from even OWNING firearms -- much less use them for self defense.

I don’t believe the intentions of the bill sponsors are intrinsically bad -- they’re just naive and misguided.

Many statists in Washington will co-opt H.R. 822 as part of their grab for more federal power and less individual liberty.

Even now, the statists in Congress are trying to adopt a National ID card, complete with biometric data that they’ve forced the states to conform to their mandated drivers license “standards.” The National Association for Gun Rights has been part of a group of liberty-minded organizations which have passed state legislation forbidding cooperation with a National ID card.

While many in the institutional gun control lobby will tell you this is a step forward for CCW permit holders, make no mistake, the National CCW Registration Act is a misguided attempt to protect our rights. It’s like asking the fox to guard the hen house.

They will use this bill as the foundation to create a federal database of CCW permit holders. And then they can link it everywhere the Feds have database connections -- state police, doctors and insurance companies under Obamacare, and Medicaid/Medicare.

I’m sorry, but I refuse to entrust my liberty and privacy to a “trust us, they won’t do that” approach to dealing with Obama, the gun-grabbers or frankly most politicians of either party in Washington.

I need you to make some noise, right now!

Here’s what you can do to help 
I need you to call House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith at 202-225-4236 and make clear that you want to keep the government’s hands off your permit and you are opposed to federal intrusion into the concealed weapons permit process. 
Once you’ve called Chairman Smith, please consider chipping in $15 or $20 to help the National Association for Gun Rights continue to fight the anti-gunners in Washington. 
It’s imperative that we stop H.R. 822 -- the National CCW Registration Act -- before it gathers steam and support.

Liberal Republicans and so-called “conservative” Democrats are looking for an easy “pro-gun” vote to give them cover before the next election.

A Trojan Horse gun control bill like H.R. 822 is exactly the kind of legislation that will get support on both sides of the aisle in Washington D.C. And remember, the Democrat-controlled Senate has to pass it before it gets to Obama... so this bill will only get worse.
