Amendment II

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. (Cornell University Law School – Legal Information Institute)

 

I received an email from Dudley Brown of the National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) notifying their readers that Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell are formulating a Gun Control Lite Bill as a compromise to offer to the Gun Control maniacs of the Obama Administration and the Leftist Dems in the Senate that wish to unconstitutionally nullify Second Amendment.

 

The point of the email is to stir activism for 2nd Amendment Gun Rights by flooding Grassley and McConnell with pro-Gun Rights messages with the hope of changing their mind on any 2nd Amendment-limiting legislation.

 

THE POINT I believe you should begin to perceive though is that RINOs call the shots in the GOP. AND that RINOs lean to Center-Left on issues that Conservatives find abhorrent. RINOs are willing to give up tooooo much in compromises in order pass some Republican-friendly legislation that is compliant to some constituent budget issue but ignores the larger picture of what keeps America good. Thus Leftist ideology creeps more and more into American culture making America more and more ceasing to be good.

 

To keep America good my fellow Conservatives – fiscally and socially – it is time to depart from the Republican and form a political party that does not pander Center-Left weaknesses that continually dilutes the nature of what America is.

 

In the mean time check out Dudley Brown’s email exposing the nefarious compromise being cooked up by Senator Chuck Grassley and garnering the support of Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Republican Senators Plotting with Obama?

Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley has a “gun control lite” bill he’s selling to weak-kneed Senators on Capitol Hill . . .

. . . and what’s even worse, Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, “it might be something I can support.”

You would think ALL Republicans are lining up behind Senators Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to support the filibuster of Harry Reid’s gun control bill — S. 649.

But that’s just not happening.

And it appears Grassley and McConnell’s “gun control lite” bill could destroy all efforts to stop Obama’s war on your gun rights when the Senate returns to Washington on April 8.

It’s unclear exactly what Grassley’s gun control bill contains, but it’s clear he’s more than willing to cut a “deal,” especially after he was the lone Republican vote with the gun-grabbers in a recent Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

That’s exactly how we’re going to get gun control — weak-kneed Republicans buckling.

That’s why it’s vital you take action AT ONCE.

Call the offices of both Senators — Grassley and McConnell — RIGHT NOW!

INSIST Grassley and McConnell OPPOSE the motion to proceed on S. 649, SUPPORT the Paul, Cruz and Lee filibuster, and, drop their plans for a “gun control lite” bill.

Senator Chuck Grassley: 202-224-3744

Senator Mitch McConnell: 202-224-2541

Obama’s gun control point man in the Senate, Majority Leader Harry Reid, is on the look-out for just this type of weak-kneed behavior from as many Republicans as he can find.

Grassley and McConnell are two of his top targets.

If Reid manages to pick up the support of enough Senate Republicans, Obama will get what he wants — fictitious “gun trafficking” legislation, so-called “mental health screenings” and “expanded background checks.”

Possibly even more gun control like Feinstein’s so-called “assault weapons ban” and a federal magazine ban will also be on the table.

That’s why Senator Chuck Grassley and Mitch McConnell’s history of “deal-cutting” should be so worrisome to gun owners.

In 2009, instead of whipping Republicans to oppose Obamacare at every opportunity, Grassley worked to a cut a “deal” with anti-freedom forces hell-bent on taking over the American health care system.

I don’t have to go back far to remind you that Mitch McConnell has a history of caving in to the demands of Obama and Harry Reid.

In January, NAGR members fought tooth-and-nail INSISTING Mitch McConnell not cave to Harry Reid’s demands to gut the Senate filibuster.

In the end, McConnell forfeited several of the procedural motions used with great effect by Senator Rand Paul and others to delay legislation that the Majority Leader is trying to jam through, allowing bad legislation to pass more quickly.

And how could we forget McConnell cutting a “deal” with Obama and Reid on the so-called “fiscal cliff” earlier this year?

McConnell’s “deal” gave Obama and Reid $41 in tax increases in exchange for $1 in spending cuts. Yes, you read that right.

So if Senator Chuck Grassley’s “gun control lite” bill looks anything similar to the “deals” he and McConnell have cut in recent years, your gun rights will be on the chopping block in just a matter of days.

The only force standing in the way of Reid’s gun control dreams is the vow of a filibuster by Senators Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz.

By filibustering — opposing the motion to proceed on S. 649 –- Paul, Cruz and Lee can hold the line against gun control for the moment.

And if they hold the filibuster and prevent Reid from getting the 60 votes he needs to break it, gun owners win the first battle in the Obama administration’s war on gun owners.

That’s why it’s vital you call the offices of both Senators — Grassley and McConnell — RIGHT NOW!

INSIST Grassley and McConnell OPPOSE the motion to proceed on S. 649, SUPPORT the Paul, Cruz and Lee filibuster, and, drop their plans for a “gun control lite” bill.

P.S. Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley is working on a “gun control lite” bill that could give Obama much of the gun control he wants. What’s worse, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said it “might be something I can support.”

2nd Amendment and Sandy Hook Massacre


2nd Amendment

John R. Houk

© December 21, 2012

 

The Sandy Hook Massacre in Newtown, CT is a tragedy on the magnitude of the Aurora Theater Massacre and the Columbine Massacre. The Sandy Hook Massacre is the worst gun slaughter of people to have happened in America.

 

I personally expected the American Left and the Left oriented Mainstream Media to use the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School as a crisis too large to pass up to remove guns from gun owners. Indeed the call for extreme gun control has arisen strongly. The gun control call has even infected some Conservatives and GOP Conservatives. I understand the outcry. Matricide and the murder of 20 young elementary age students in their school is so heinous any normal American would want some kind of prevention to stop the massacre of children from occurring.

 

Is part of the solution to take away guns from people that have a Second Amendment right to own guns for self-protection in a society in which law enforcement clearly is a bit behind in the axiom of ‘serve and protect.’

 

A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. (2nd AmendmentThoughts)  

 

Personally I do not own a gun. The biggest reason for not owning a gun is the lack of training in operating a gun. I would be that person that accidentally shot himself by doing something stupid. However, if or when the time arrives in which civil unrest due to government chaos or the increase of criminal behavior threatened my family or me I would immediately learn how to operate a gun safely and protect the family from any kind of hostile intent.

 

Because of the precarious future that is possible I definitely do not support any gun control that takes guns away from private citizens. America’s citizens still have the Second Amendment right to protect themselves. Taking guns away from gun owners is not a solution. Perhaps Nancy Lanza (Adam Lanza’s mother) should have taken greater care to keep her guns from a mentally disturbed or ill son. She and 26 other people (20 children) would be alive today if she had responsibly locked her guns away from her psycho-murdering son.

 

Gun Rights organizations and individuals have developed a theory on the Sandy Hook Massacre that there must have been a different scenario of the massacre than the one that is becoming to be the official description of events. Frankly at this point the Conspiracy Theory sounds like a bit of stretch to offer plausible deniability for a spontaneous murder spree with unprotected guns. I’ll take a wait and see attitude on the plausibility; nonetheless you should be aware of the conspiracy that is placed out by pro-gun users.

 

The Conspiracy Theory proffered by Niall Bradley with a lot of detail can be read HERE. Bradley believes he has acquired more information that shows the Sandy Hook Massacre may have had foreknowledge before occurrence.

 

The moment it emerged that he was alive and was taken into police custody in Hoboken, New Jersey, many if not all of the statements previously made to the press by anonymous ‘law enforcement officials’ regarding Ryan Lanza and his connections could no longer have been known beforehand.

 

In the following passage of my previous article on the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, I made the following reference to Ryan Lanza being the named second suspect caught armed in the adjacent woods:

 

Perhaps most astonishingly, this suspect arrested in the woods was named in an Associated Press report as 24-year-old Ryan Lanza. The original report has long since vanished of course, but you can see it referenced here. This was despite the fact that Ryan had already been named as the deceased suspect inside the school, lying next to two handguns.

 

I have since found the original Associated Press report, which in fact states that it was “Ryan’s younger brother”, Adam Lanza, who was arrested in the woods. So let’s take a closer look at this revealing report.

 

2:25 p.m. CST — A FoxNews report said:

 

witnesses said a handcuffed man, dressed in camouflage was led out of a nearby woods by officers who reported to the shooting. The individual is Lanza’s younger brother, according to the Associated Press.

 

That Fox News report has since been ‘updated’, but here is the full original text and screenshot of the Associated Press report which places both brothers at the scene, one dead (Ryan), and the other arrested (Adam):

 

AP source: Suspect is 24; younger brother held

Pete Yost, Associated Press

Washington (AP) – A law enforcement official says the suspect in the Connecticut school shootings is 24-year-old Ryan Lanza and that his younger brother is being held for questioning as a possible second shooter. The law enforcement official says the boys’ mother, Nancy Lanza, works at the school as a teacher.

The official also said Ryan Lanza’s girlfriend and another friend are missing in New Jersey.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, the official said the suspect is dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because the source was not authorized to speak on the record about the developing criminal investigation.

 

Who exactly is this ‘law enforcement official’ that has access to the premier news agency in the country, and on behalf of which state agency does he/she work for?

How did they even know at this point that Ryan had a younger 20-year-old brother when there are no public records of Adam Lanza since 2009 and the two brothers had not seen each other since 2010, as claimed by Ryan? How could they have known on Friday morning that Ryan had a girlfriend and that she and another friend were missing in New Jersey? How did they even know that Ryan had any connection to New Jersey at all? The Lanzas’ mother was dead at this point and their father only found out later through a reporter asking him about Adam, who had by then become the ‘lone gunman’ in the official narrative.

Surely the first point on the timeline at which anyone can even begin to discover these things about Ryan is the moment he piped up on Facebook and said “Hi, I’m alive, I didn’t do it, and I live and work down here in New Jersey!” How could ‘law enforcement officials’ have pieced together details of his life but not known that he was actually still alive in the very location where they stated that his girlfriend had gone missing?

The only way they could have found out all this about Ryan Lanza was if they had 100% positively identified him as the ‘dead gunman inside the building’, then worked backwards from there by investigating who his next of kin were, then questioning family members, then discovering where he lived and worked, that he had a girlfriend and that she and a friend were missing, etc.

Such things take time to investigate, especially as they would involve cross-checking with police and other officials in New Jersey. And even before that, somebody there would first have had to receive local reports of two missing people before any connection could be made to the shooting in Connecticut.

Even if we granted these ‘law enforcement officials’ superfast detective powers, they would not have been able to travel back in time to rewrite the script regarding how they knew what they knew about the Lanza brothers, particularly Ryan. Because from the moment the official line was forced to deviate towards saying that Ryan Lanza was no longer the ‘dead shooter inside the building’, it became impossible for these ‘law enforcement officials’ who “weren’t authorised to speak” (but heck, were telling lots of people lots of things that morning anyway, and whose credentials enabled them to speak through the Associated Press and other media outlets) to have retrospectively discovered all these connections of Ryan.

The only logical conclusion I can draw at this stage is that somebody or some group with high-level media access had FOREKNOWLEDGE of the crime, foreknowledge that is revealed by their ‘anonymously’ leaking to the press things which they could not otherwise have known, foreknowledge that exposes their hand in originally planning to use both Lanza brothers as patsies. (Sandy Hook massacre: Evidence of official foreknowledge?; by Niall Bradley, sott.net, 20 Dec 2012 19:35 CST)

 

Here is a ‘What if?

 

What if Bradley is theorizing accurately? Why wasn’t Adam Lanza stopped? And if Lanza was caught alive in some field outside of the school, why is there an official story Adam Lanza found dead as if he committed suicide? Also, could Lanza have had companion perpetrators in the slaughter?

 

The plausibility of the Conspiracy Theory should be something to think about as this email that was forwarded to me from the National Association for Gun Rights.

Yesterday morning, Barack Obama held a press conference confirming our greatest fears…

He’s launching an all out campaign to pass comprehensive gun control:

   1. A so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban,

   2. A “High-Capacity” Magazine Ban, and

   3. A ban on ALL Private Firearms Sales without government permission.

And he wants the legislation on his desk as early as January.

Obama says “Ban Guns”

 

By Dudley Brown

Dear Christine,

Our Second Amendment rights are hanging by a thread.

Anti-gun hysteria is reaching a fever pitch.

And President Obama just announced he’s on the warpath — and he’s not taking any prisoners.

Christine, this is an all-out EMERGENCY.

And unless you act today, I’m afraid we’ll be staring at a gun control nightmare.

At a press conference immediately following the Connecticut shooting, President Obama made his intentions clear: He’s prepared to ram his anti-gun agenda down our throats.

And sadly, the national media is more than willing to help him get his wish . . .

MSNBC anchors are calling for outright gun “confiscation!”

Even prominent Republican backers like Fox News founder Rupert Murdoch is loudly calling for new gun control schemes, and Fox News commentator Bill Kristol is calling for “serious hearings.”

The establishment gun lobby is nowhere to be found, deleting their Facebook page in an effort to run and hide from the fight.

And all their phony “friendships” are finally being exposed for exactly what they are.

You see, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — who they handed nearly $5,000 to during his last reelection — just announced plans for Senate movement on gun control.

And another NRA “A-rated” Democrat, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, is joining others saying he’s changed his mind on gun control.

Even supposedly “pro-gun” Republicans, like Senator Chuck Grassley (IA), Lindsey Graham (SC) — even Marco Rubio (FL) — are happily playing into the gun-grabbers hands by calling for a total review of our gun laws!

If all this sounds like a recipe for disaster, it’s because it is . . .

Whenever a tragedy — a revolting grave crime — is committed, gun-grabbers ALWAYS rush to “cash in.”

Always.

With the national media as their accomplice, they drive up mass hysteria, fear and IGNORE basic facts that don’t fit their anti-gun agenda, like:

 

>>> “Gun Free Zone” signs do not protect anyone from violent madmen;

Like we saw in the Aurora movie theater and the Newtown, Connecticut Elementary School, all these signs do is guarantee killers never face anyone who can defend him or herself;

 

>>> Guns don’t commit crimes.  Criminals do;

In fact, guns are used 2.5 MILLION times every year to deter or stop crimes.  In fact, at the recent mall shooting in Portland, Oregon, the gunman took his own life after being confronted by a shopper carrying a concealed handgun.  And there are literally dozens of stories of shootings being stopped by legally-armed citizens over the past few decades;

 

>>> Gun Control DOES NOT WORK.  PERIOD.

Anti-gun utopia Mexico — whose anti-gun laws are so harsh it has only one gun shop in the whole country — is virtually owned by violent gangs who don’t beg “permission” from government officials before they get their hands on guns.

 

This is exactly what’s happening right now.

So if you want to ensure your Second Amendment rights are protected into the future, I’m counting on you to act IMMEDIATELY.

Being involved in the fight has never been more important.

First, I need your signed Second Amendment Protection Petition to help drown out the anti-gun spin machine with today.

In the coming weeks I’ll flood Congress with tens of thousands of pro-gun petitions proving you and I are serious about protecting our rights and we’re not backing down!

 

Unfortunately, it gets worse.

After the results of the 2012 elections, the gun-grabbers were already demanding action from President Obama and his anti-gun Democrat allies.

Michael Bloomberg and Sarah Brady went to bat for President Obama in two straight elections, and they want something to show for their efforts.

Now, President Obama believes he’s been handed the perfect “excuse” to enact a laundry list of anti-gun schemes, including:

 

*** The UN “Small Arms Treaty.” This dangerous Hillary Clinton-backed Treaty is nothing more than a massive GLOBAL gun control scheme designed to register, ban and confiscate firearms from law-abiding citizens;

 

*** A new so-called “Assault Weapons” Ban.  President Obama loudly supported passage of a new ban during his reelection campaign, and Senator Diane Feinstein just announced she’ll be introducing a new bill in the new Congress;

 

*** Mandatory federal political “mental illness” screening to buy a firearm.  Should such a scheme pass, the federal government would be granted the new power to strip away the Second Amendment rights of any American at will — just because they don’t like your race, your religion or the political candidates you support;

 

*** Sweeping ammo bans or bans on magazines holding just a handful of rounds.  With any one of these schemes, Congress could effectively outlaw many commonly-owned rifles and handguns.

 

That’s why it’s so important you act IMMEDIATELY.

 

Without our action, the ONLY voices the politicians will be hearing will be that of the gun-grabbers and their pals in the media.

If that continues, you and I will lose and lose BIG.  Bank on it.

The good news is, you and I can fight back.

But we must mobilize quickly.

We must ensure every politician in Washington, D.C. understands America does not need new gun control laws . . .

It’s more freedom.

It’s more good guys armed with the power and the ability to stand up to deranged bloodthirsty loons and STOP them.

You know how we’ll make the politicians understand that?

By ensuring every single one of them knows they’ll pay the price with their political careers for voting for gun control schemes.

But to do that I’m going to have to mobilize Second Amendment supporters from all over the country.

I’ve already authorized my staff to begin broadcasting our message across the web on sites frequented by politically-active pro-gun voters.

And we’re expanding from there:

Mail, email, web videos, and even hard-hitting radio, newspaper and TV ads if I can raise the resources.

I want to mobilize up to 14 million Americans.

Not next month.  Not next week.  But NOW.

You see, there’s no time to waste.

Of course, such an ambitious program won’t be cheap.  But it’s our one shot at winning.

So please sign your Second Amendment Protection Petition TODAY.

But also, please chip in just $10, $20, or even $30.

Thanks in advance for answering the call in this tough time.

    For Freedom,

 

   Dudley Brown
   Executive Vice President

 

P.S. President Obama just announced he’s on the warpath — and he’s not taking any prisoners — this is an all-out EMERGENCY.

With politicians from both parties caving to the gun-grabbers, it’s never been more important to fight back.

I’ve already begun a campaign to mobilize up to 14 million pro-gun Americans to prove to the politicians we still stand for the Second Amendment and we’re not backing down!

But such an ambitious program isn’t cheap.

So after you sign your Second Amendment Protection Petition please chip in just $10, $20, or even $30.

Together you and I will weather this storm and continue to stand for freedom.

Bill of Rights is Victory over oppression

John R. Houk

One of the most horrendous acts of terrorism happened in Aurora, Colorado. James Holmes perpetrated a massacre of American theatre goers in Aurora, CO. He used guns and ammo he purchased legally.

 

The American Left has jumped on this massacre of innocent people as an excuse to promote gun control at the expense of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. There is a reason our Founding Fathers desired that have the right to bear arms. If the British confiscated weapons prior to the Revolutionary War, Americans might have declared Independence in vain as the Red Coats swept through the American colonies enforcing British authority and hanging the signers of the Declaration of Independence for treason against the King that imposed taxation and confiscation without representation. There would not have been a USA as we know it today that even our foreign detractors flock to America for Freedom and Liberty.

 

On July 27 the United Nations might get the USA to join a global treaty that is in essence global gun control that will rob Americans the right to protect themselves from criminals and a potentially unjust government that is leaning more and more toward Leftist ideology. Leftist ideology will further be inculcated in America if Obama is elected combined with a Democratic Party majority in the Senate.

 

We need to fight the United Nations Small Arms Treaty today and remove Obama from the White House on Election Day 2012.

Our Strategy

 

The Real Nature of Politics and Politicians: America’s System Works, but Not the Way You Think!

 

Few of the lectures I give on political technology and campaigning make people as agitated as this one.

 

None is more important.

 

Simply put, politics is not about the common good, appealing to men’s better angels, nor serving our Lord. These may be your motivations. I pray they are mine. Occasionally, they will be a politician’s motivation.

 

Politics is the adjudication of power. It is the process by which people everywhere determine who rules whom.

 

In America, through a brilliant system of rewards and punishments, checks and balances, and diffusion of authority, we have acquired a habit and history of politics mostly without violence and excessive corruption.

 

The good news for you and me is that the system works.

 

The bad news is it is hard, and sometimes unpleasant work, for us to succeed in enacting policy.

 

There is absolutely no reason for you to spend your time, talent, and money in politics except for this: If you do not, laws will be written and regulations enforced by folks with little or no interest in your well-being.

 

The following pages may challenge everything you thought you READ THE REST
