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."

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.

A very strong piece of writing. It gives not just food for thought but a banquet. It so clearly states the realities of our society's relationship to violence and the incomprehensible attitudes of those who disrespect our military and completely underestimate the current threats to our liberty, our lives and our freedom.
I'd like to add;
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in their government."… Thomas Jefferson
Oops, NRA does it again: endorses union shill running against the conservative

Incredible. After playing kissy-kissy with Harry Reid and selling the First Amendment down the river (Disclose Act), look what the NRA is now doing: Michigan’s District 1 SEIU candidate in the Republican primary is proud to announce that the NRA has endorsed him in that primary against Tea Party candidate and physician, Doctor Dan Benishek.

Many conservatives are taken aback ....

http://www.redstate.com/e_pluribus_unum/2010/07/26/oops-nra-does-it...
The NRA has NOT endorsed Harry Reid in Nevada. This "rumour" was actually started on moveon.org and Huffington Post and then NOT checked for credibility by Redstate. Here is the ACTUAL press release by NRA-ILA.

http://www.nraila.org/News/Read/NewsReleases.aspx?ID=14003
Read it again, Nelson. Nowhere does it claim that the NRA erdorsed Harry Reid. It is likely true that they were considering it before gun advocates nationwide raised a storm of protest.
ANOTHER LAWSUIT FILED CHALLENGING BAN ON SHIPPING AMMUNITION INTO CALIFORNIA

Thursday, July 29, 2010

Alleges AB962 Pre-empted by Federal Laws that Regulate Interstate Shipping

The National Rifle Association (NRA) today joined the Calguns Foundation, the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (the largest trucker’s trade association), the Folsom Shooting Club, and two individual truckers in a lawsuit challenging California’s soon-to-be-implemented law banning most shipments of handgun ammunition into California. The case is OOIDA v. Lindley. A copy of the Complaint is available at www.calgunlaws.com.

Assembly Bill 962 was signed into law last year. Starting in February 2011, the law will criminalize the delivery and transfer of handgun ammunition not done in face-to-face transactions. The law provides only a few exceptions to this shipping ban, and requires shipping companies to bear the burden of determining whether the recipient of a package containing handgun ammunition is covered by one of the exceptions before delivering the package. This will make shipping ammunition to California much more difficult, complicated, and expensive.

California firearm retailers, ranges, clubs, and owners, as well as hunters, depend on the efficient and inexpensive movement of ammunition by carrier into California. In February 2008, a unanimous United States Supreme Court struck down Maine’s directly analogous law regarding the delivery of cigarettes to Maine in Rowe v. New Hampshire Motor Transport. Rowe made clear that a state cannot interfere with a carrier’s rates, routes, or services, because Congress made an important decision to protect common carriers from a patchwork of state and local regulations burdening interstate commerce when it enacted the Federal Aviation Administration Authorization Act (FAAAA). The FAAAA specifically prohibits state and local governments from interfering with common carriers’ rates, routes, or services.

AB 962 is a blatent violation of the Commerce Clause of the Constitution.

This is the lawsuit that I am involved with and will be entering an Amicus curiae petition to.
This has also been ruled on by the SCOTUS in Granholm V Heald and Swedenberg V Kelly, both out of Michigan saying that the states have no authority to regulate interstate commerce and that the Commerce clause of the Constitution authorizes the Federal Government to make interstate commerce "regular".
Article 1, Section 9, clauses 5 and 6;

No tax or duty shall be laid on articles exported from any state.

No preference shall be given by any regulation of commerce or revenue to the ports of one state over those of another: nor shall vessels bound to, or from, one state, be obliged to enter, clear or pay duties in another.

Article 1, Section 10, clause 2;

No state shall, without the consent of the Congress, lay any imposts or duties on imports or exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it's inspection laws: and the net produce of all duties and imposts, laid by any state on imports or exports, shall be for the use of the treasury of the United States; and all such laws shall be subject to the revision and control of the Congress.

Article 1, Section 8, clause 3;

(The Congress shall have power)...To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes;

INTERSTATE Commerce is one of the 17 enumerated powers granted to congress and the that CANNOT ban, regulate nor tax interstate commerce.
I'm glad that there's an organized effort underway to roll back these outrageous assualts on the Constitution.
Nelson,

Quote: INTERSTATE Commerce is one of the 17 enumerated powers granted to congress and the that CANNOT ban, regulate nor tax interstate commerce.

My reply: Wouldn't it be better to tell the Truth, that it is against Constitutional law for the Anti-God Liberals to Ban, Regulate and Tax us as they do.

After all they don't obey any of the Laws themselves, but they sure Twist the Laws to make Slaves out of American Citizens!

Randy
That is what makes an "internet tax" so treacherous. All the rights and liberties get taken away gradually. As soo as we "give in" once because something "sounds reasonable" it set a precedent that forever after will be used against us to take more liberty. Always Always Always. How is it that they can restrict religion in public in violation of the Constitution? Because they decided that Allowing something is the same as enforcing it. How can we have a separation of church and state, and how can congress "make no law establishing religion" when our very income tax code ESTABLISHES and decides what a religion is?!

"There are 27 amendments in the Constitution but only one says 'shall not be infringed,'" Steve Toth said. "The Second Amendment is the amendment that keeps the people free."

“The States then being the parties to the constitutional compact, and in their sovereign capacity, it follows of necessity, that there can be no tribunal above their authority, to decide in the last resort, whether the compact made by them be violated; and consequently that as the parties to it, they must themselves decide in the last resort, such questions as may be of sufficient magnitude to require their interposition.” – James Madison

This country does not need to have a conversation about how many bullets should go in a clip. It does need to have a conversation about how many parents should go in a family. It needs to talk about the ghettos of Obamerica and have a serious conversation about broken families and generational dependency. It needs to have a conversation about funneling new immigrants from broken parts of the world into areas already suffering from high levels of unemployment and street violence.- Daniel Greenfield

Only in America could liberals talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

We need to demythologize guns before the liberal attempt to create a totemic fear of them succeeds. If the gun control mentality promoting fear of guns themselves becomes our national mentality, we would turn the clock back to the days when a warrior class ruled over the people because only they had the confidence and expertise to deploy the means of defense and coercion. The gun control agenda will turn us into a people too timid to defend themselves from our would-be masters. – Alan Keyes

How can we stand up to someone that creates a 100 dollar Federal Reserve (FR) note for 2 cents and uses the face value of the note of 100 dollars to buy a 100 dollar U.S. Security where the government has to pay them 4% in interest at the end of the year?

“Capital must protect itself in every possible way, both by combination and legislation. Debts must be collected, mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through the process of law, the common people lose their homes, they will become more docile and more easily governed through the strong arm of government applied by a central power of wealth under leading financiers. These truths are well known among our principal men who are now engaged in forming an imperialism to govern the world. By dividing the voter through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting for questions of no importance. It is thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves that which has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.”
