A Constitution in FULL Crisis

... "If the Constitution no longer stands, then there is NO federal government. The federal government exists only as a result of the Constitution. A very real crisis is at hand…"

"As a result, more than 32 states are rushing to pass Tenth Amendment legislation intended to remind the federal government of this reality. But the Obama regime is not listening."

"Many of those states are also passing Second Amendment protections for their citizens, making it illegal for the Fed to threaten private gun rights, even in cases of 'Martial Law.' But the Fed has rejected all such state bills, claiming that 'federal laws supersede state laws.'" ...

"So if their laws work for gun control, states have rights. But if state laws work against gun control, federal bans are in order--from Chicago to Cheyenne. Just moderate the message in accordance with political needs. Supporters in the media will help cover tracks."

Also hear audio of Barack Obama endorsing a nationwide federal ban on concealed carry--except, of course, "for retired police and military personnel."

"In the wake of the Afghan and Iraq wars, a lot, and I mean A LOT, of property book military equipment has turned up missing. ... Oddly, they don't seem interested in prosecuting the thieves ... The DoD is simply interested in getting its property back."

"However, there is another class of government employees who are skulking around, offering 'can't miss' deals on this stuff, seeking to entrap whomever they can. There are a number of these three-letter federal agency folks plying their trade in Alabama just now. Look, if somebody you don't know from Adam's off ox comes up to you and offers a PVS-14 night vision device for $300.00, the price tag is sure to be a lot higher in the end."

"A word to the wise should be sufficient."
 

'The Window War': Coming Soon To A Window Near You

As submitted by a commenter:

...What would happen if three percent of American gun owners or maybe even three percent of the American public decided they were ready to take things to the next level with minor breaches of the law?

It's doubtful the damage would be limited to the headquarters of political parties and the offices of the house and the senate in their districts. Expect to see damage at the multitudes of new offices, which have sent forth swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance in recent decades. Many an alphabet agency's windows are likely to get in on the action. 'The Window War' also hints that private residences are likewise on the list...

... "There was a single case in the VPC report from Minnesota. The VPC, apparently relying solely upon a Star Tribune article, reported the incident as: "Iheme, who had a concealed handgun permit, was found guilty of second degree murder." But actual court records which would have been easily researchable, reveal that Mr. Iheme did not have a permit." ...

"Just when gun-rights activists thought they could let their guard down, Congress goes and does something to raise their hackles once again." ...

"After yesterday's vote that wrecked legislation (by two votes) that would give concealed-carry permit holders reciprocity in all fifty states[sic], it looks like the NRA will have plenty of reasons to keep up its fight."

"While the latest action has more do to with state's rights than the Second Amendment, companies like Sturm Ruger ... and Smith & Wesson ... love the news."

"Their revenues have been soaring over the last nine months ... Now that Congress has done something arguably 'anti-gun,' spooked shooters can resume their shopping spree." ...

"The split in the Republican base over Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor grew wider Thursday, with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce endorsing her confirmation while the National Rifle Association amped up pressure for senators to vote no."

"The chamber, which frequently files friend-of-the-court briefs supporting business interests against labor or consumer litigants, cited Sotomayor's private practice representing companies in trademark and contracts matters." ...

"The senator from the state that kills Wild Bill Hickok every day for tourists says we would be safer with gun-toting yahoos walking around Central Park."

"Yee-ha!"

"Never mind that there has not been a killing in Central Park since 2002, the victim being struck from behind with a rock."

"And never mind that a bullet in the back of Hickok's head proved more than a century ago that packing two six-guns is no protection against a coward." ...
 

Two States Legalize Guns in Bars

"Even though gun-rights advocates in the Senate narrowly failed on Wednesday in a vote to greatly broaden the freedom to carry concealed weapons, two states acted last week to make it easier for armed gun owners to hang out with drunk people."

"Last Tuesday, a new guns-in-bars law took effect in Tennessee ... A few hours later, Arizona followed suit ... The Arizona Republic reported that the governor's action 'expanded the rights of gun owners by allowing those with a concealed-carry permit to take their firearms into establishments that serve alcohol.'" ...

"In both states, there is a catch. The new laws stipulate that armed patrons have to refrain from drinking ... creating a new category of customer, the designated shooter." ...

"Johnson said he was in a chair when Yarbrough jumped on him without explanation. 'He'd been drinking,' Johnson said. 'He had something in his hand.'"

"Johnson kicked Yarbrough away and walked to his bedroom. When Johnson returned about 10 minutes later, Yarbrough allegedly lunged at him again."

"'I told him to leave me alone,' Johnson said. Yarbrough did not quit, Johnson said, so Johnson pulled a gun from his pocket and shot Yarbrough." ...

"Gunfire on the Texas Southern University campus wounded six people and scattered the crowd at a community rally, and police on Thursday were investigating whether a gang rivalry was behind the drive-by shooting."

"People were gathered at the event that included a Houston rapper's performance when a car drove by and shots sprayed out from the vehicle, school spokeswoman Eva Pickens said, citing witness statements to police. The sound of gunfire made people drop to the pavement of the parking lot where the rally was being held to promote community service and voter registration." ...

"By now, most of you know that the Thune-Vitter amendment failed by two votes. While this measure was defeated, the impetus behind it remains and the push for the restoration of gun rights in this country will continue."

"One interesting fact that came out of this whole effort was highlighted during the speeches on the floor of the Senate prior to the vote." ...
 

The sham vote on national concealed carry 'Thune Amendment'

"Plenty of ink (and not a little hot air) has been expended over yesterday’s US Senate vote on the 'Thune Amendment' ... much-ballyhooed by the NRA, the amendment would have created national reciprocity between states with concealed carry laws, enabling concealed handgun permit-holders to protect themselves and their families during interstate travel."

"Laudable though Thune's goal of national concealed carry may be, however, understand that the entire exercise was nothing but a sham ..." ...

"If the drama demonstrates anything, it is that, as Mark Twain put it, 'It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.'"

"The United States Senate narrowly declined to respect the law of the land in rejecting another affirmation of freedom in this country. Senator John Thune [R -S.D.] put up a bill which would have made reciprocity for concealed carry permits cool among all those states who have some sort of CCW permit. That would be forty-eight states. It’s not the first time the will of the people is denied in the name of the will of the people."

"Do they work? Does the Thune - Vitter Bill call for the eradication of background checks, or does it affirm greater freedom for those who have already passed background checks and would pass them in other states as well?" ...

... "PNW: In 2005, ... Congress passed, and Bush signed, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which aimed to rid the nation of frivolous lawsuits against gun manufacturers. Could another Supreme Court vacancy reverse this advance?"

"Dissell: Right now, the average American gun owner is very curious as to what will happen. Heller said the constitution guarantees an individual's right to keep and bear arms. However, there is a federal versus state jurisdiction battle going on right now within the White House. On one hand, the President is saying his health care bill will supersede state law, but the Heller decision does not. ... Heller said the Constitution is the law of the land." ...

"A lot has been made recently in Ohio's pro-gun community about Republican gubernatorial candidate John Kasich's congressional vote in favor of the 1994 Clinton Assault Weapons ban. As it stands, Mr. Kasich refuses to disavow the vote on the record, and will only go so far as to state the bill didn't have the intended effect"

"To pro-gun advocates, that response is simply not good enough, because it implies that if another gun control law came along that he believed in, he might support gun control again." ...

"Yesterday's readers were promised that today's column would cover the Brady PAC's anti-gun fund-raising efforts in Chicago. Unfortunately, the research on that piece is spiraling out of control. Did you know that the President of the Illinois Senate is a registered lobbyist? ... There are many fun tidbits like that one to organize before the piece on Brady PAC is ready; don't expect to see it before Monday."

Kirk announced on Monday that he will run to replace Roland 'Tombstone' Burris, D-Blagojevich, as Illinois' junior Senator. ... for Illinois gun owners, Mark Kirk may not be cause for celebration. ..." ...

Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom. — John F. Kennedy
