The Second Amendment is Not Your Gun Permit

"Fact: the Second Amendment does not grant you the right to keep and bear arms."

"I’m probably going to make a few enemies here, but it’s about time to correct this common misnomer. You probably have seen this message a million times, ... some person commenting in opposition to state concealed carry permits. They almost always say something like, 'the Second Amendment is my only gun permit.'"

"Erroneous."

"First off, the Constitution does not grant us rights. The Constitution ... delegates power to the federal government, outlines its responsibilities and declares its restrictions."

"Second, the Bill of Rights protects natural rights and privileges from federal government usurpation. That’s it. ..." ...
 

Second Amendment: Gun Use Doesn't Fit Narrative
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"In January, Barack Obama was leading the charge for federal gun control measures, standing on the caskets of the children killed at Sandy Hook Elementary in December. He asked the Centers for Disease Control to "research the causes and prevention of gun violence." His objective, of course, was to reinforce the leftist narrative that guns were to blame for acts of evil. Instead of blaming the perpetrator, the Left focuses on the implement."

"The CDC passed the job to the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council, which completed the study in June. But because it didn't follow BO's preferred BS storyline, it's only now seeing the light of day. One inconvenient truth for the Left is that guns save lives. ..." ...
 

USSA: How to Deal with Anti-Hunters and Harassment

"As avid sportsmen and women, we may cross paths with our biggest foes: the anti-hunting community. Whether in the field, ... a restaurant, or any other place, it is generally a rather unpleasant encounter. If this happens to you in the field, the question is: How should I handle this situation?"

"Remember, hunter harassment is illegal in all 50 states! Over 25 years ago, USSA wrote the draft hunter-harassment language that was used by the majority of states when they passed laws protecting hunters and hunting. This language has withstood all court challenges during those decades."

"If you happen to encounter an anti-hunter while in the field who attempts to disrupt your hunting experience, follow these USSA guidelines:" ...

"There is something to be said about owning a gun that can take down the biggest game in North America; within reasonable distance anyway. Although the only large bears around here are mid sized black bears, it is re-assuring to know that I have enough gun to deal with any that may decide I am a threat to its cubs."

"No doubt about it that the Ruger Alaskan is a big and heavy gun, but in a chest or belt holster, it makes for a nice companion when venturing into the woods. ..." ...

... "There have been a large number of mass shootings in the US in recent years years, and yet the estimated number of guns held by civilians remains at 310,000,000 and the National Rifle Association (NRA) still exercises significant control over policy-makers. Approximately 9,960 people were murdered with a firearm in the USA in 2010, a rate of 3.2 per 100,000 people. A ban on handguns and other firearms will be difficult to pass, but Obama had considered background checks to be the most likely gun restriction to be approved. Polls had shown that 90% of the public were in favour of the measure after the events in Newtown." ...

"After the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., happened on December 14th, mothers across the country decided to take action."

"'We all became accidental activists,' said Jocelyn Strauss. 'We just felt it was time to do something.'"

"So they formed the group 'Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America.' The group now has 100,000 members, including about 800 in Phoenix."

"Strauss is the group's regional manager in Tucson. She said the group supports the Second Amendment, and many of the members are gun owners. But they believe that tougher laws must be created to protect Americans from gun violence. ..." ...

"The ugliest twist in the slaying of Delbert “Shorty” Belton, the 88-year-old WWII vet who was fatally beaten outside an Eagle’s hall in north Spokane, came yesterday when one of the defendants in the case alleged that the octogenarian was assaulted because he was trying to cheat the two suspects in a crack cocaine deal, according to the Spokane Spokesman-Review."

"And today the Internet is being further heated by a remark from Spokane Police Chief Frank Straub two days ago that suggested Belton may have escalated the situation by fighting back, though to read his complete remark that may not be the case." ...

"Imagine a classroom in which students are unaware if their professors or peers are armed1. As students from all over the country settle back into the swing of college life, the debate on whether to allow concealed carry of firearms on college campuses will likely be a hot topic."

"Though six years have passed, many have not forgotten the Virginia Tech shootings, resulting in deaths of 32 people, or the following year’s shooting at Northern Illinois University, in which 22 people were shot and 5 died. Horrific events such as these haunt survivors, and resonate with those who wish to see guns banned from campuses." ...

"It is now fifty years since the Dream speech of Martin Luther King Jr. from the steps of the Lincoln memorial. One story you probably haven't heard about it is that of Charlton Heston and MLK."

"It may shock the sensibilities of persons raised on particular American narratives to hear that Charlton Heston, the crazy NRA guy, put down his rifle and took his cold dead hands to the capital in August of '63 to hear at firsthand the sacred words we remember this week." ...

"Long-time readers of this website will no-doubt recall the active killer attack at New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO in 2007. After having killed two people and wounding two others at a YWAM training center, the 24 year-old killer set his sights on New Life Church. What he did not know was that the flock at New Life had protection from wolves such as him, in the form of sheepdogs who made up the church's safety team. Among those sheepdogs was Carl Chinn, author of 'Evil Invades Sanctuary: The Case for Security in Faith-Based Organizations.'" ...

"In Chicago, President Barack Obama declared that the city had the 'meanest streets in America' (there were 502 murders in 2012)."

"But instead of declaring a 'war against drug-cartel thugs,' the president chose the occasion to speak out, once again, against the Second Amendment."

"Using his 'common sense' plan calling for universal background checks, he essentially declared that America’s gang violence could be stopped by finding out where LEGAL gun owners in America live."

"Wow, that really makes sense!" ...

"Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has announced plans to hold a Judiciary Committee hearing on Sep. 10 regarding federal marijuana policy, and says that state laws legalizing cannabis use, although in contravention of federal law, 'should be respected.' ..." ...

"Good for Senator Leahy. Perhaps he is learning respect for the Tenth Amendment. Perhaps, do we dare hope, he is coming to recognize the grotesque abuses of the interstate commerce clause that have for decades been used to justify every federal law that has passed with no apparent Constitutional authority."

"Then again, perhaps not. He has not, after all, been a vocal defender of Firearms Freedom Act legislation ..." ...
 

The nullification movement: How states aim to ignore federal gun laws

"Agents from the [ATF] are the federal government's primary enforcers of the nation's gun laws, tasked with regulating weapons in all 50 states. But if a new Missouri bill clears a gubernatorial veto and becomes law, ATF agents could soon end up being charged with felonies for simply doing their jobs."

"Yes, the Missouri state legislature is on the verge of passing a bill that would nullify all federal gun laws, and make it a crime for U.S. agents to try to enforce them within the state's borders. The legislature will reconvene in September to vote on the bill, and it seems destined for passage." ...

"The murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School happened nine months ago. School is about to open again, yet politicians ignored the hard work of writing laws to protect our children."

"Many of us wrote about the changes needed to stop mass murder in our schools."

"I have not seen those changes implemented across the United States, and I certainly have not seen them implemented in California where I live. Our politicians left our children at risk. Yes, the politicians planned for the next tragedy. They prepared press releases rather than preparing necessary legislation to keep our children safe. This is what the California politicians ignored." ...

"As political issues go, gun control has always been explosive. Or, as Nashville and Davidson County (Tenn.) Metro Parks director Roy Wilson more tactfully puts it, 'politically divisive.' Just look at Wilson's home state, where the issue of gun control in parks and recreation areas ignited political firefights throughout the summer — after the state Legislature approved a bill that repealed a decades-old law preventing guns in local parks." ...

"Former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel once said, 'Never let a serious crisis go to waste.' Recently, Attorney General Eric Holder tried to follow this advice by criticizing Florida's Stand-Your-Ground law in the aftermath of the Zimmerman verdict. But, was this law a factor in the case?"

"As I pointed out in my last two columns, the evidence overwhelmingly supports the innocence of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin. Not only is George innocent of murder and manslaughter, he also had no racial intent. In fact, the prosecution did not even mention racism in court. Interestingly, Florida's Stand-Your-Ground law was also never mentioned in court because, like racism, there was no basis for it." ...

The essence of constitutionalism in a democracy is not merely to shape and condition the nature of majorities, but also to stipulate that certain things are impermissible, no matter how large and fervent a majority might want them. — George Will
