Commerce, Jurisdiction and Firearms Freedom Acts
Submitted by: Larry

"State efforts to reclaim their jurisdiction are great. But in some respects, the states are still showing signs of apprehension of, and/or undue deference to, the federal government."

Various states have passed legislation, collectively referred to as 'Firearms Freedom Acts.' Though they may vary in the details, a common thread in these acts seems to be that a state considers a firearm to be within its jurisdiction if it is manufactured within the state."

"The obvious reason for this common thread is that if a gun entered from another state, the argument that it falls within federal jurisdiction under the Interstate Commerce Clause can be invoked. However, such an argument would be incorrect." ...

Are gun rights advocates seditious?

"Many Americans are upset at our government. Approval of the job performance of Congress is about 20% ... Gun owners tend to be among the political right, and Second Amendment support is a common thread among Tea Party demonstrators. All of us who bitterly cling to our guns are painted by the mass media as a violent bomb, just waiting to go off. From ex-president Clinton on down, there have been comments to the effect that the political right is urging any crazies who might be willing to ... commit violent acts against the government. We have been called seditious. We are told that sedition is rising up against the authority of the state, and as practitioners we probably ought be muzzled or incarcerated to calm down the country." ...

"When you write on-line you have to own up to, and fix, your mistakes when they are pointed out to you. This is especially true (and ironic) when the mistake you made was in an article where you criticized someone else for 'getting it wrong.'"

"In my previous article, 'The Westland Police Department Alerts the Public about legal open carry - And gets it wrong,' I made an inexcusable mistake myself: I incorrectly identified the official from the Westland Police Department who returned my call and answered my questions." ...

"Whoa! This past Sunday show can only be summed up in three words. WOW, WOW and WOW!"

"To officially kick off the Second Amendment March on DC, the show lineup was the greatest yet…and I DO mean the GREATEST yet."

"I was surrounded in the studio by some of the biggest names in the firearms field and every one of them came to join me on AAR. Nationally syndicated talk radio giant MANCOW was on hand as the first guest to help set the electric stage of the show…And it worked."

"The electricity generated by the studio full of 'heavy hitters' loudly cheering and enjoying themselves was felt across the airwaves. For crying out loud, if you missed it, go over to www.armedamericanradio.org and GET it!" ...

"To paraphrase George Patton, I thought I'd stand up here and give y'all a chance to see if I'm as big and bad a 'mad dog militia terrorist' as Rachel Madcow, Chris Matthews, Jonah Goldberg, Michael Medved and Billy Jeff Clinton say that I am."

"... You know, when you're denounced by a serial perjuror that has special meaning, and you know that you have arrived. But there's one thing I want to straighten out right here and now. Billy Jeff says that we are, we Three Percenters, are 'unhinged and disgruntled.' But that's not true. You see this? (Holds up a small gate hinge) Here's my hinge. All right? So I am not 'unhinged.' ..."

"Now as far as being 'disgruntled,' I am reliably informed that in the Commonwealth of Virginia it is illegal to show your 'gruntle' in public. That being the case ... you ain't gonna see my 'gruntle.' That's between me and Rosey, my beautiful wife, so I don't care what Bill Clinton says." ...

"... The Second Amendment March allowed me to get Michael Bane, Skip Coryell, Rich Heller, and radio personality 'Mancow' into my church at the same time."

"We will never be the same. This has been a phenomenal week."

"I survived all that was the Second Amendment March. There were hundreds of emails, cell and Skype calls, schedule shifting, html and web work, prayer, and promotion. There was hope and fear. There was preparation and spending. And I wasn't even the organizer of the event."

"Suzanna Gratia Hupp's new book, From Luby's to the Legislature - One Woman's Fight Against Gun Control, is much more than the story of the Luby's massacre that occurred in October of 1991."

"It is a story about a girl and the lessons her loving parents taught her. It is about her family and events that made her the women she is today, the importance of being able to protect yourself, and the ability to change the world to make it possible (and legal) to protect your family in all the places you live." ...

"To hear the worst of the prognostications, that vast and mesmerizing country to the south of you now is the United States of Paranoia – a land of gun-crazed zealots so riled up it is ready to take itself down for good."

"And small wonder, if all one does is connect the many disconcerting dots: a wildly overexposed Tea Party movement channelling Sarah Palin's mantra not to retreat, but instead 'reload'; a 244 per cent rise in the number of patriot and militia groups since Barack Obama's election ..."

"'Am I worried? You bet. Are we are spiralling into the seventh circle of hell? Absolutely not,' said Mark Potok, whose ... Southern Poverty Law Center says there are now 512 anti-government militias operating in the U.S." ...

"Days of courtroom proceedings lie in one 23-year-old Memphis woman's future after becoming a victim of robbery, rape and kidnapping, all under the threat of a gun. She now understands why some choose to arm themselves to try to protect themselves from crimes like these."

"'Now, I would own a gun. The only thing more dangerous than a gun, though, is someone having one who doesn't know how to use it,' said the woman, who asked not to be identified." ...

... "Sometimes it's useful to forget about polls, rallies and cable news and just drive ... Drive until you idle onto a private shooting range in the dead center of Virginia, in a nest of back roads lined with historical markers ... Drive and listen. Listen for what's at stake, for why people think the republic has gone astray, for how daylong stretches of shooting guns are a step on the path to national redemption."

"It's 10 a.m. Saturday. The people are here, on their bellies on the ground, and the shell casings are flying. Bullets snip through plywood and disappear into a loamy berm. A breeze carries the stink of scorched lead and copper toward a fluttering clothesline of colorful revolutionary flags." ...

"... What do we do now beyond waiting for more gang retaliation because of what happened to Wooten?"

"I've heard suggestions that more Muscatine residents should buy guns and get permits to carry concealed weapons. That concerns me even though I believe in the Second Amendment."

"But keeping guns in your home and defending it and your family if someone breaks in is one thing. Carrying a concealed weapon and responding to gang violence with vigilantism would only lead to more violence." ...

"One thing you will find very quickly when you read our surveys is that are very specific and detailed. WVCDL does not need to reinvent the wheel: we already know that 80+ percent of candidates for elected office in West Virginia claim to be pro-gun. Unfortunately, West Virginia's gun laws do not reflect a genuine legislative commitment to honoring, both in the letter and spirit of the U.S. and state constitutions, an individual's right to keep and bear arms." ...

"Few would argue that the 2010 elections are pivotal for America, and few would argue that continued liberal domination of both Congress and the White House will inevitably lead to assaults on the right to keep and bear arms."

"In North Carolina, the time to act is now: Early voting for the May 4 primary election has already begun. If you stick your head in the sand and don’t vote, you have only yourself to blame for the result. And do not for a moment try to claim that “my vote doesn’t count.” Even if you have forgotten the 2000 presidential election, understand that my organization, Grass Roots North Carolina (GRNC), is primarily responsible for the election of a sitting congressman who was elected by a grand 86 votes." ...

"According to the ad, the Bloomberg bill would nationalize Colorado's rule about background checks at gun shows. But in fact, only a small fraction of the Bloomberg bill addresses the issue of background checks. The rest of the bill has a much more aggressive agenda.

For example, gun show promoters do not sell guns. The promoters just operate the shows ... The Bloomberg bill would give the U.S. attorney general unlimited power to impose fees and regulations on gun show operators. ..." ...

"According to directorblue.blogspot.com, President Obama's Change.gov website has a section explaining their position on gun violence in cities but proceeded to take down the page on the Change.gov website when word of this was leaked across the internet.

"St. Peters alderman Gus Elliot, apparently having come to the conclusion that denying people an effective means of self-defense is not the best way to ensure their safety, had planned to introduce legislation that would have lifted the prohibition on carrying firearms in municipal buildings. ...

"Actually, his plan was more modest than I have implied (more modest, in fact, than I would have preferred), in that it would still prohibit members of the general public from carrying firearms on municipal premises--it would only apply to officials and staff. Even that, though, was apparetly too much for most of the rest of St. Peters officialdom." ...

"When Raymore City Councilman Jeff Cox pushed to allow members to carry a gun during meetings, colleague Charlene Hubach warned that everyone would probably have to dive for cover."

"Cox's proposal failed to become law. But that was in January. Now, with April's election having removed two opponents to his plan, he is back."

"And if Cox's new proposal passes Monday night, Hubach might not know which way to dive, because this version seeks to allow the audience to show up armed, too."

"That would likely be a first for the Kansas City area."

"Last year the Tennessee Legislature overwhelmingly passed a bill legalizing handgun carry in restaurants that serve alcohol. This was quickly dubbed the 'so called Guns in Bars Bill' by the state's major newspapers. So called, because they so called it."

"The bill was vetoed by Governor Bredesen."

"The Legislature then overrode the Gov's veto."

"Chancellor Bonnyman, a Bredesen appointee, in a judicial end run, declared the statute 'unconstitutionally vague.'"

"Fast forward to 2010. A bill is moving through the legislature to once again allow carry in alcohol-serving restaurants. Now there appears to be a move to stall this bill, through poison pill amendments." ...

"State lawmakers have done a lot since President Obama's election to shake off Uncle Sam, passing 'sovereignty' resolutions and a record number of laws that specifically defy Congress on issues such as legalized marijuana and health-care reform. Most make the same claim: that the U.S. Constitution gives the federal government power to regulate commerce between states but doesn't permit interference in purely local affairs. Later this year, the Montana Firearms Freedom Act, which proclaims that guns manufactured in Montana and sold in state are not subject to federal rules such as background checks, is slated to become the first of these Obama-era commerce challenges tested in court. ..." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. — John Stuart Mills
