PA: Don’t handcuff law-abiding gun owners
Submitted by: Paul

Gov. Ed Rendell has signed into law tougher gun penalties.

However, we must not be lulled asleep and give Philadelphia politicians and our current governor what they really want: To pick and choose which guns they believe we can or cannot own. After they get the “inch,” they will want the “mile” – and trample on our constitutional right to bear arms.

Mr. Mayor, I hate to break it to you, but criminals couldn’t care less about gun laws. And they don’t give a rat’s rear end about this new tougher-penalty law.

I say “yes” to punishing the thugs and criminals for committing acts of violence using guns. But I say “hell no” to government limiting, in any way, my right to bear arms or to own whatever type of weapon I so desire
 

We Have Always Been at War With National Police Power

Well, that's what the conservatives seem to imply. Today I got to hear Melanie Morgan and a caller discuss George Orwell's 1984. The caller had just read it and was surprised how much it resembled today's national government. All day the conservatives were ranting about the Homeland Security Department's ideological profiling of conservatives. A common talking point: The media would go crazy if the government did this to the left!! Well, actually, the feds are doing this to the left, too, and the media do not seem to care much. And Bush issued a similar report on the leftwing threat in April, 2001, without any outrage from the public I can recall. And then there was all the spying on the antiwar movement.

But now, all of a sudden, the right has discovered Orwell and sympathize once again with the idea of loving one's country but not one's government. So what is it when the Orwellians co-opt Orwell? Is it double Orwellianism? Is it Orwellianism jumping the shark?

Pierre Lemieux is a...gun owner, and a couple of years back he was obliged to fill in the relevant (Canadian) government paperwork:

Before renewing his gun permit in 2007, the authorities decided to inquire into Lemieux's bedroom history. Did he divorce anyone in the last two years? Did he break up with a girlfriend? If yes, use a separate sheet to explain.

Pardon me? Explain?

Well, it was nothing personal . Apparently, Canada's government feels it ought to know the romantic status of all firearm owners.

(H)e wrote, "I answered that my love affairs are none of your business."

Needless to say, the government declined to issue his permit, and he's now taking them to court for the next five-to-ten years.

 

MS: Miss. woman gets shot in head, makes tea

A Mississippi woman who was shot in the head not only survived but made herself tea and offered an astonished deputy something to drink, authorities said Friday.

Byrd said deputies were looking for Sexton's husband, Donald Ray Sexton, earlier in the week to give him a document ordering him to stay away from his wife.

"She was at her bed, and he shot her right in the head," Byrd said. "Then he went out on the back porch and shot himself."

When the officer got there she said, 'What's going on?' She was holding a rag on her head and talking. She was conscious, but she was confused about what had happened," he said. "She had made herself some tea and offered the officer something to drink."

Gun rights are neither liberal nor conservative, feminist nor patriarchal, Democrat nor Republican, Left nor Right. Gun rights are populist at their core, in defense against government tyranny at their widest application, and in self-defense at their most personal application.

"But back to Homeland Sec...uh...civil defense. What's clear is, a society of self-governing sovereign citizens simply cannot sit back, depend on hirelings and reap a Liberty-promoting outcome. Our involvement must be more than pretending everything is normal and trusting government to take care of us."

The Thomas More Law Center, a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, announced that yesterday evening it filed a federal lawsuit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. The lawsuit claims that her Department’s “Rightwing Extremism Policy,” as reflected in the recently publicized Intelligence Assessment, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” violates the civil liberties of combat veterans as well as American citizens by targeting them for disfavored treatment on account of their political beliefs.

Lawmakers are trying to use the ongoing drug war in Mexico to build momentum to reinstate a ban on assault weapons, the head of the National Rifle Association (NRA) alleged Sunday. “They’re trying to piggyback this whole issue on the back of this tragic issue in Mexico,” NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre argued Sunday morning on CBS.

About 5,000 people turned out for the Syracuse gun show Saturday. "Sales have been very brisk, very brisk," said gun dealer Jack Herbst. "People are afraid of what the government is going to do, and what the people on the east and west coast are going to come up with next to further regulate this stuff, and it's sort of a panic buy unfortunately." With the recent shootings in Binghamton, gun control is once again a hot topic.

Taking his campaign for stronger gun control measures to the national stage, Gov. Rendell squared off with a top National Rifle Association official on national television today over the federal ban on assault weapons.

Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation, Rendell said there was no “rational reason” to allow the sale of assault weapons. “They are used for only one reason…to kill and maim people,” he said.

Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA, on the TV program called the assault weapons ban “a totally phony issue” and called for stronger enforcement of existing laws.

Drug Control Breeds Gun Control

You might think the persistence of the drug traffickers' main business, which consists of transporting and selling products that are entirely illegal on both sides of the border, would give pause to those who think they can block the flow of guns to the cartels. Instead, the violence fostered by drug control feeds demands for equally futile gun control.
 

'Rightwing Extremists' Are Concerned About ' Restrictions on Firearms Ownership and Use'

Actually, what the document finds is just the opposite of what its overblown title suggests: “The DHS/Office of Intelligence and Analysis (I&A) has no specific information that domestic rightwing terrorists are currently planning acts of violence,” the report admits at the outset.

Nonetheless, such characters need to be watched, the boys in Washington now advise.

After all, “Rightwing extremists may be gaining new recruits by playing on their fears about several emergent issues. The economic downturn and the election of the first African American president present unique drivers for rightwing radicalization and recruitment,” the report continues.

Got that? Although your government can’t find any actual EVIDENCE that any “rightwing extremists” are planning any violent or criminal acts, government agents are now advised to keep a close eye on them … just in case.
 

Homeland Security leaders defend memo on veterans

Top Department of Homeland Security officials on Sunday defended an agency intelligence assessment warning that veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan could be susceptible to recruitment by right-wing extremists, though one said it should have been "more tightly written and presented."

Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano said on CNN's "State of the Union" that she regrets that some people took offense over the report, but added that "a number of groups far too numerous to mention" were targeting returning veterans to carry out domestic terrorism attacks.

She said the warning report, which went out to American law enforcement agencies two weeks ago, was consistent with earlier reports.

The report, which also warned of veterans engaging in lone acts of violence, was criticized by conservatives who called it offensive and said the agency should apologize to veterans.

Do you oppose the Federal Reserve? Support states rights? Hate the income tax? Support the right to bear arms? Know the Constitution better than our rulers? You are a likely suspect of a hate crime. You are in the same class as violent racists and terrorists.

With the upsurge in gun and ammo purchases and the mysterious rise in mass shootings, we can expect more efforts to lump violent agitators together with normal Americans who simply wish to defend themselves and their families. With growing resentment about Washington’s saddling future generations with debt, there will be more attempts to characterize Americans who hate paying ransom to a distant government with people who hate their country or want conflict. With the neglected veterans of Bush’s wars having trouble readjusting to society or simply dissatisfied with the increasingly socialistic country they come home to after being told they were defending freedom, we will see this tragedy caused by the federal government disgustingly twisted into a way to bolster that government.

I am sick and tired of people who call you unpatriotic if you debate this administration’s policies. We are Americans and have the right to participate and debate any administration. ~ Hillary Clinton, April 29, 2003

The above statement should be read with a loud, piercing, shrill voice.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy ... censorship. When any government, or any church, for that matter, undertakes to say to it's subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything. You cannot conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him." --Robert A. Heinlein, "Revolt in 2100" (Pg. 68-69, Baen Books paperback edition, 1999 printing)
