So long 4th Amendment!!!
Nanny Bloomberg, Billionaire assO elitist wants to run your life!!
And leave you unable to protect yourself..
So much for the Constitution!
Why do so many Washington politicians ignore the Tenth Amendment? Because it’s meant to check their power. This makes it one of the most important parts of the U.S. Constitution. The Tenth Amendment states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it…
This is more then ‘common sense’. This is how it should be everywhere!!
Amazing how those whom are deemed ‘important’ get away with crap ‘normal’ folks never could.
Especially those whom are ‘appointed’…
Read this carefully..
Do you understand this now? He feels ‘constrained’ and works hard to remove this constraint….Hold on tight to you guns…You may using them..
IN other words..You asshat gun grabbing politicians know not what the hell you are talking about…No surprise there!!
Schools do not teach anymore. They do not teach History as it happened, they teach it as they wished or actually believed t had happened. Now after teaching that and making American Students feel horrible about their history…SO much EVEEL America caused, they want to disarm them and the rest of us..Why?
Math is so hard…SO just manipulate the numbers that disagree with you into ones that agree with you..Is the left’s way…And is what happens when you do not teach real world subjects in Public Schools..
I heard something rather disturbing this morning on the news, 50% of the people believe we need more gun control, 40% believed it should stay the same and 10% believed we needed less… Then it occurred to me that the same percentages were true for the 5th grade equation below. Only 10% got this equation correct when I first posted it.
The majority 60% said the answer was 1, 30% gave some other random number, and only 10% gave the correct answer of 7. 7 is the correct answer, So because the majority said 1 is that the correct answer?… NO, because we have rules for mathematical operations. Just because the majority of the people want gun control doesn’t make it constitutional or right. The equation above proves that the majority of the people get a 5th grade equation wrong 90% of the time.
All gun laws are unconstitutional because we have rules for law making just like we have rules for math. Those rules are stated in the constitution. “The right to bear arms shall not be infringed”. There are no exceptions, not for felons, scary people, scary guns, crazy people, people having a bad day, etc… And I don’t see any majority over rules the constitution clause either.
Suppose the law being considered was to block all blacks from gun ownership or prohibiting blacks from being out past sun set. As a percentage of population they are more violent and commit more crimes than any other race as America’s prison populations prove. And now suppose the majority of the people said that banning blacks is what they wanted. Should the congress pass this law because that is what the mob wants? The constitution prohibits this type of law based on race. But, If we are now discarding the right of each citizen to bear arms, why not disregard this part of the constitution blocking laws based on race or national origin?
The government now wants us to ask permission from the government through a back ground check to exercise a right that shall not be infringed by that same government. And there are members of congress that don’t think that sounds idiotic. It is no less idiotic or unconstitutional then banning blacks from gun ownership or being on the streets at night.
It sounds great to say that all felons cannot own guns, or all crazy people can’t have guns. Let’s have a “No Gun List”. As if that will stop the violence. It will not. In Atlanta a gunman took 4 firemen hostage because his home was being foreclosed on. He demanded his lights and cable be turned back on… So now we need financial back ground checks for guns… OH… and I’ve seen people lose it when getting divorced, So divorced people need to be placed on the “No Gun List” too…
Just like banning blacks from being out on the streets at night will not stop them from committing crimes, neither will a “No Gun List” stop the violence… ALL Gun laws are unconstitutional. And we are being governed by a mob of people that can’t get a 5th grade equation correct… welcome to Idiocracy…
Repuplikans give up the Constitution and their right to claim being called a Conservative and defender of Freedom. Beginning to look a lot like the Dhimmicraps!!
And apparently the Repuplikans were pretty cheap to sell out!! Whores and Politicians, cheap….

Across America, state lawmakers, governors, attorneys general, sheriffs, and other officials are promising to protect the gun rights of citizens in their jurisdictions in the face of the most aggressive assault on the Second Amendment in generations. Indeed, as the Obama administration’s unconstitutional agenda becomes increasingly transparent — backed by some Democrats and much of the establishment media — resistance to further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms is exploding nationwide.
Numerous bills have already been introduced in state legislatures, for example, that would nullify unconstitutional federal gun control and even criminalize enforcement of such lawless restrictions. Texas, Wyoming, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Iowa, and other states are considering nullification legislation in the wake of Obama’s recent push to enact gun control by executive decree and proposals sent to Congress. Other states are expected to join soon, and many have already adopted laws in recent years protecting guns made and kept within their jurisdictions from federal regulations.
In Mississippi, Republican Gov. Phil Bryant sent a letter on Wednesday urging state lawmakers to “immediately pass legislation that would make any unconstitutional order by the President illegal to enforce in Mississippi.” Citing widespread concerns over “our sacred rights as Americans,” the governor noted that “several states have introduced similar measures and I believe will be successful in preventing this overreaching and anti-constitutional violation of our rights as American citizens.” He also urged citizens to resist any such presidential decrees, according to news reports.
Among the states that have already introduced strong legislation to protect gun rights from lawless federal restrictions is Wyoming, which has one of the most heavily armed populations in America while enjoying some of the lowest crime rates. State lawmakers there are rallying behind a bill, which they expect to pass, that would nullify any and all future infringements on the right to keep and bear arms, including restrictions on semi-automatic weapons or magazines. Federal officials attempting to enforce unconstitutional statutes or executive orders would face felony charges and up to five years in prison.
“We’re a sovereign state with our own constitutional form of government,” said Republican state Rep. Kendell Kroeker, the chief sponsor of the Firearms Protection Act and a strong believer in both the Wyoming and U.S. constitutions he took an oath to uphold. “We’ve got a right to make our laws, and if the federal government is going to try to enforce unconstitutional laws on our people and take away the rights of Wyoming citizens, then we as a state are going to step up and make that a crime.”
Following Wyoming’s lead, lawmakers in Texas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Indiana, and other states all filed similar nullification legislation designed to put the federal government in its place on the gun rights issue. Legislators say that with the increasingly out-of-control federal government running wild and threatening to restrict the constitutionally guaranteed rights of citizens, it is time for states to take action and re-assert their sovereignty.
“It’s our attempt to push back on the federal government’s ever increasing encroachment, not only on our personal liberties but on our state sovereignty, and this is what we’re going to do,” said Tennessee state Rep. Joe Carr during a press conference on his legislation to criminalize enforcement of the Obama administration’s anti-Second Amendment schemes. “We’ve had enough and enough is enough. We’re tired of cheap political antics, cheap props using children as bait to gin up emotional attachment for an issue that, quite honesty, doesn’t solve the problem.”
In Texas, famous for its independent-minded citizens and its relative respect for gun rights, state officials are also stepping up to the plate. State Attorney General Greg Abbott, for example, noted that the proposals being discussed in Washington, D.C., are unconstitutional and should be treated as such. Citing Supreme Court rulings on gun rights, the state’s chief law enforcement officer promised to take the infringements to court and get them thrown out. Gov. Rick Perry, meanwhile, also jumped on the Second Amendment bandwagon, slamming Obama and his allies in the media for exploiting dead children to advance an unconstitutional agenda.
State lawmakers in the Lone Star State are taking concrete action in defense of citizens’ rights, too. “We can no longer depend on the federal government and this administration to uphold a Constitution that they no longer believe in,” said state Rep. Steve Toth, who recently introduced a bill to nullify federal restrictions on gun rights and charge anyone trying to enforce them with a felony. “The liberties of the People of Texas and the sovereignty of our state are too important to just let the federal government take them away. The overreach of the federal administration’s executive orders that are do not align with the Constitution, are not very popular here in Texas.”
One state, however, is standing above even Texas. Analysts say that legislation filed in Missouri by Republican state Rep. Casey Guernsey with over 60 co-sponsors, known as the Second Amendment Preservation Act, appears to be among the strongest bills at this point. If passed, it would nullify any and all federal acts, orders, laws, statutes, rules, or regulations purporting to limit or restrict access to personal firearms, accessories, and ammunition. Any federal official caught attempting to enforce such unconstitutional rules in the state would be charged with a class D felony, facing up to four years in prison upon conviction.
The Tenth Amendment Center, which advocates state nullification of all unconstitutional federal statutes, celebrated the legislation in Missouri and called on other state governments to join the movement. The non-profit organization, citing history and the Constitution, insists that it is the duty of state officials to uphold their oath of office and protect the unalienable rights of citizens — especially with the federal government becoming increasingly lawless and unhinged.
“When you’ve got people like Feinstein talking about major bans and Biden telling us that all they need is an executive order, you know these folks are willing to go all the way. So, it’s good to see these folks in Missouri go all the way as well, all the way in support the 2nd Amendment without any ifs, ands, or buts,” said Mike Maharrey, the Tenth Amendment Center’s national communications director. “The feds have absolutely zero constitutional authority to make any laws over personal firearms. Period.”
The principle of nullifying unconstitutional federal activities goes back to the earliest days of the republic, when Founding Fathers like Thomas Jefferson invoked it. Throughout American history, though, it has always been around. The state of Wisconsin, for example, nullified a federal statute purporting to require that runaway slaves be returned to their masters.
Numerous constitutional scholars have studied the issue, and in recent years, the concept has exploded into the public consciousness, with even big government-oriented Americans nullifying unconstitutional federal power grabs. Some 18 states have nullified federal drug statutes by legalizing marijuana for medical purposes, for instance. Colorado and Washington State recently legalized the controversial plant even for recreational use — all in open defiance of clear federal dictates.
Conservatives, meanwhile, are increasingly relying on nullification as well, targeting everything from ObamaCare to the latest round of gun-control scheming. In a recent article for The New American on Missouri’s efforts, liberty-minded attorney Joe Wolverton, an expert on nullification, explained the foundation — both legal and historical — for state actions nullifying unconstitutional federal power grabs.
“Nullification is a concept of constitutional law recognizing the right of each state to nullify, or invalidate, any federal measure that exceeds the few and defined powers allowed the federal government as enumerated in the Constitution,” he explained. “Nullification exists as a right of the states because the sovereign states formed the union, and as creators of the compact, they hold ultimate authority as to the limits of the power of the central government to enact laws that are applicable to the states and the citizens thereof.”
While states pursue nullification, county sheriffs nationwide have also promised not to comply with new gun control, with more than a few chief law enforcement officers pledging to actively prevent the enforcement of such measures in their jurisdictions. At the federal level, of course, lawmakers who take their oath of office seriously are working to stop the administration’s anti-gun rights machinations as well, with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) working to push a bill targeting “King” Obama’s executive orders. Some Republicans in the House have even put impeachment on the table.
Despite the intense efforts to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms being led by the Obama administration and some Democrats in Congress and amplified by their allies in the press, the anti-constitutional push may be backfiring, according to analysts. Aside from renewed interest in nullification, recent polls show two out of three Americans understand that the Second Amendment was added to the Constitution to protect the people from tyranny — not for “hunting” or “sporting” purposes, as citizen-disarmament advocates continue to suggest.
Much of the state-level resistance is currently focused on stopping unconstitutional gun control, but the awakening taking place nationwide is increasingly expanding to other areas as well. As the federal government continues to lawlessly expand its size and scope far beyond constitutional limits — targeting more and more of the people’s rights in the process — activists from all sides of the political spectrum will increasingly rely on nullification. And if the anti-constitutional trends out of Washington, D.C., continue, a showdown between states and the feds will become imminent.

Broad coalition supports important bill to nullify this unconstitutional monstrosity
“Once again, we see the bipartisan nature of the pushback against federal kidnapping,” Tenth Amendment Center national communications director Mike Maharrey said. “This is not a Republican issue or a Democrat issue. This is an American issue.”
It’s their duty to say “NO!”
As Sheriffs across the country reflect on how to address a future that may ask them to participate in firearm registration and confiscation schemes more are saying with clarity “not my department”.
Want to keep helping the Muslim Brotherhood? My CA Jewish (sort of) Senators do.
What system of law has resulted in every single country from which we removed inconvenient dictators using American blood, treasure and technology? Inconvenient dictators – all Muslim rulers are dictators. The inconvenient ones had the temerity to trade with Israel and somewhat tolerate Christians and Jews in their countries.
Was the result a democratic society with freedom of the press and religion? A model based on the freedoms and cautions expressed in the Declaration of Independence which gives the Constitution meaning (and why people have historically risked life and limb to become part of)?
Are we? Is it to this point?
Seems like it. Seems like the voice of the Pro Gun, tax paying citizen is being ignored and drowned out by Buck Ofama and his bought and paid for media. He is running around ‘campaigning’ again, working his sheeple into a frenzy of shrieking hoping to drown out the voice of reasonable discourse..Does he think we are going to meekly turn them in?

I ‘m sure we’ll not see a story like this about our current “commander”-in-chief.
They are anything but reasonable…
While banning guns and magazines is being actively promoted by the anti-gunners (as evidenced by introduction of Sen. Feinstein’s S. 150), the criminalization of private firearm transfers is the centerpiece of their anti-Second Amendment efforts.
This is part of a strategy to chip away at our Second Amendment rights under the guise of being “reasonable.”
You know President Obama and his allies are losing the gun argument when his greatest supporters are against him: Reason/Rupe released a scientific poll which found the majority of Americans–particularly young Americans–support the right of people to own so-called “assault weapons.”
Of the 1,000 adults surveyed, 51 percent of respondents support the private ownership of “assault weapons,” while 44 percent were opposed. It may come as a shock to the public that the strongest advocates for private ownership are young Americans, the same age demographic that overwhelmingly supported the President in his reelection.
Molon Labe, Buck Ofama, Feinkenstein and the rest…
“The Sheriffs strongly support our Citizens right, protect his right, to bear arms under the Second Amendment and the National Sheriffs Association does not support any law that deprives the citizens of the rights provided under the Constitution and the bill of rights.”
“Every elected sheriff has the right to enforce the laws in their county as they see fit.”
I’m thinking The Patriot would be a good one to watch this weekend…Just saying..It always warms my heart to see oppressive, vicious assOs get their dues…

A Gun Control News Roundup »
Here is a collection of some of the latest stories coming from the American gun control debate. Gun grabbers are making a great deal of noise and using underhanded tactics to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.” More »
What happens to religion when they have control?
And damn proud of it!!
Ban trucks! Or women driving trucks!!
Nor will I…
Stupid move of the day..
Really? Death threats? To a Marine?
Need? For me it is the ability to defend self and property from tyranny, oppression and the threat of Government…
Oh yes..More Conspiracy? Or ???
Yep, all you hunters fear not. We don’t want you guns, just those evil guns, the ones we keep alluding to, but not really describing, becasue we really don’t know what the hell we are talking about so if it has that shoulder thing that goes upand it goes BANG we want it. But really hunters are safe…
The right of the people to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and a hallmark of personal sovereignty. It is specifically insulated from governmental interference by the Constitution and has historically been the linchpin of resistance to tyranny. And yet, the progressives in both political parties stand ready to use the coercive power of the government to interfere with the exercise of that right by law-abiding persons because of the gross abuse of that right by some crazies in our midst.
Notice how they are stacked? Remember that..
Wyoming Threatens Arrests for Federal Gun Grabbers
by AWR Hawkins
As details continue to emerge regarding gun control plans that President Barack Obama and the Democrats are pushing behind the scenes, Wyoming lawmakers have a message for the federal government: “Don’t tread on us.”
Local radio station KTWO reports that lawmakers in Wyoming have proposed a “Firearms Protection Act” that provides a state-level annulment of any ban against semi-automatics or magazines that hold 20 or 30 rounds or more.
When Discussing the Second Amendment, Keep the First in Mind TooBy Jay Carney, White House Press SecretaryThank you for participating in We the People to speak out on an issue that matters to you.Let’s not let arguments over the Constitution’s Second Amendment violate the spirit of its First. President Obama believes that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. However, the Constitution not only guarantees an individual right to bear arms, but also enshrines the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press — fundamental principles that are essential to our democracy. Americans may disagree on matters of public policy and express those disagreements vigorously, but no one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the Second Amendment — or any other matter of public concern.
We recognize that the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, sparked an intense, and at times emotional, national conversation about the steps we can take as a country to reduce gun violence. In fact, your petition is one of many on the issue, and President Obama personally responded by sharing his views on this important issue.
Look, like the majority of Americans, I believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. This country has a strong tradition of gun ownership that’s been handed down from generation to generation. Obviously across the country there are regional differences. There are differences between how people feel in urban areas and rural areas. And the fact is the vast majority of gun owners in America are responsible — they buy their guns legally and they use them safely, whether for hunting or sport shooting, collection or protection.
But you know what, I am also betting that the majority — the vast majority — of responsible, law-abiding gun owners would be some of the first to say that we should be able to keep an irresponsible, law-breaking few from buying a weapon of war. I’m willing to bet that they don’t think that using a gun and using common sense are incompatible ideas — that an unbalanced man shouldn’t be able to get his hands on a military-style assault rifle so easily; that in this age of technology, we should be able to check someone’s criminal records before he or she can check out at a gun show; that if we work harder to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, there would be fewer atrocities like the one in Newtown — or any of the lesser-known tragedies that visit small towns and big cities all across America every day.

Censored. What they don’t want you to know about guns and violence. Because it disproves their lies..
Shortly after the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, anti-gun liberals came flooding to the airwaves like cockroaches in a cheap motel room. One of the chief cockroaches was British celebrity Piers Morgan
Barack Obama and Louis Michael Seidman have a few things in common: they are both “progressive” leftists; they were both Constitutional Law professors; and they both want to get rid of the US Constitution. The difference is, the President probably wouldn’t just come out and admit it, but his actions indicate that he wants nothing more than to just scrap the entire document and declare himself dictator…
Martial Law coming? This LEO believes so…
Death panels. Don’t think so? Really? Think again…
Next they will come for your…Light bulbs!!! Just wait till they kick your doors in to check your…lamps…fixtures….

“It is said that the 2nd Amendment follows hard upon the 1st so as to serve as its bodyguard — providing the added incentive of coercive force by a wary citizenry to guarantee that those initial cherished liberties, expounded by our Founders, did not go the way of the 10th Amendment. The 2nd Amendment, interpreted as the right to bear arms by a free people, has not escaped that yawning chasm that has opened up between the political Right and Left, and the rationale behind this stratification falls along the same familiar tensions of individual vs. collective. The nature of men, having proved insufficient in wisdom for the eradication of evil, must then paradoxically utilize the equalization of deadly force to not only suppress the jaundiced glint in our neighbor’s eye but the tyranny that arises when men esteem the chimera of ordered equality over liberty.” –columnist Glenn Fairman
Even the idiots are displeased: “[Obama] has taken all the Bush changes — he basically put them into the establishment, [and] he has codified them. That is what is sad. So we are going into the second administration that is living outside the law and does not respect the law and foundations of our system and he is a constitutional lawyer, you know. … It is an Orwellian state. It might not be oppressive on the surface, but there is no place to hide. Some part of you is going to end up in the database somewhere.” –director Oliver Stone
“As the nation teeters at the edge of fiscal chaos, observers are reaching the conclusion that the American system of government is broken. But almost no one blames the culprit: our insistence on obedience to the Constitution, with all its archaic, idiosyncratic and downright evil provisions.” –Georgetown “constitutional law professor” Louis Michael Seidman
“The question for today, as the Republican party fighting, infighting, spills over onto the national stage, is whether they’ll go back to the center-left positions of Eisenhower and start winning elections again, or if they’ll double down on stupid to satisfy the Kochs, the Adelsons, the Murdochs, and the Limbaughs of their party. … I’m betting they’re gonna double down on stupid, ’cause that’s where the money’s comin’ from.” –leftist radio talk show host Thom Hartman
