CCRKBA Calls Milwaukee, WI Police Chief's Remarks 'Outrageous'

"[CCRKBA] today criticized Milwaukee, WI Police Chief Ed Flynn for his open defiance of the State Attorney General's office in a controversy over open carry of firearms."

"Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has stated that it is legal in Wisconsin for citizens to carry guns openly in a peaceful manner. However, Chief Flynn is ordering his officers to 'take down' citizens, 'put them on the ground' and disarm them, and 'then decide whether you have a right to carry it.'"

"The situation should alarm all Wisconsin citizens, whether they own guns or not, said CCRKBA Legislative Director Joe Waldron, because it places police officers and private citizens in a deliberately confrontational position. ..." ...

Turnabout is fair play--use freedom of speech to protect right to keep and bear arms

. . . I am quite accustomed to arguing that the Second Amendment is more than merely a part of the Bill of Rights--it is the guarantor of all the rights codified therein. Without the ability to defend one's rights--with force, if necessary--recognition of those rights is utterly dependent on the honor and good will of the government.

The deaths of tens of millions of people over the course of the 20th century at the hands of their governments prove that such dependency is potentially fatal, on a massive scale.

That, of course, is the reason for the Second Amendment--protecting the right of The People to be too strong to oppress . . .

"Grab a cup and settle in. This one's another long one."

"This week, there is a lot of coverage about why liberals are so angry. I've monitored this since the sixties, and how it relates to gun control and to the overall independence of the people from our servants."

"Some of the discussions of liberal anger center around liberal Narcissism, and link liberal emotions and reactions to the precarious position which they perceive in their current political power. Uncertainty and stress can provoke short tempers, but this is not anger. And what's behind the Narcissism?"

"Some believe liberals still cannot stomach the 2000 election. This is not anger." ...

"The gun grabbers are counting on most gun owners being unaware that a threat even exists. And they're also counting on us being too apathetic or cynical to do anything about it even if we find out."

"And here's something important to remember--while the Obama administration will exploit this, we can't forget it was his predecessor, George W. Bush, who 'moved to make the directorate 75 percent self-funding. In one fell stroke, he gave the agency the power to set its own budget, and levy its own taxes.'"
 

Where exactly does the Second Amendment apply?

"Amidst the jubilation among freedom lovers following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision last year in District of Columbia v. Heller, which held that the Second Amendment creates[sic] an individual right to keep and bear arms, many overlooked a possible huge exception: whether the amendment restricts only national laws (including ordinances passed by the District of Columbia), and not state laws. If so, the celebration was premature."

"Earlier this year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld a New York law on the grounds that the Second Amendment only limits national restrictions. That decision rested on older U.S. Supreme Court opinions of questionable vitality—but they were never overruled." ...

"I cannot."

"No means no. Not means not."

"Just like the First Amendment."

"No infringement on Free Speech."

"No mixing Church and State."

"No Gun Control."

"That doesn't mean that the government cannot tax a newspaper. Or make a rabbi register his car. Or ban possession of machine guns."

"But to forbid private gun ownership, like in the law that was declared unconstitutional in the District of Columbia? Clearly beyond the pale." ...

Submitter's Note: No machine guns? Where in the Second does it say "... the right of the people to keep and bear arms that are not militarily useful shall not be infringed"?

"Black Wing was founded by Rex and Suzanne Gore in 2004 and has quickly become a favorite destination for shooters and firearms enthusiasts. It is located just north of Columbus in Delaware, Ohio.

"While people talk guns and restrictions under the Obama administration, the specifics aren’t discussed at times. The issue of hunting is one of them. Hunters want their rights protected, but do they need assault rifles?"

"Assault rifles are defined by authoritative websites as the primary defensive weapons of modern armies. That makes sense certainly. Still keeping them without rules or restrictions remains an issue for gun rights advocates." ...

Submitter's Note: Yes, select-fire assault rifles are used by the military. However the gun banners are trying to ban semi-auto assault weapons. We will leave for later the discussion of the Second Amendment and militarily useful arms like assault rifles.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
For, in principle, there is no difference between a law prohibiting the wearing of concealed arms, and a law forbidding the wearing such as are exposed; and if the former be unconstitutional, the latter must be so likewise. But it should not be forgotten, that it is not only a part of the right that is secured by the constitution; it is the right entire and complete, as it existed at the adoption of the constitution; and if any portion of that right be impaired, immaterial how small the part may be, and immaterial the order of time at which it be done, it is equally forbidden by the constitution.
