The People Who Saved The 2nd Amendment
Aaron Gardner is really doing a wonderful job highlighting Laurence Silberman’s defense of the 2nd Amendment in RedHot — and I hope he continues — but I thought something else should be added here in the diaries so that comments could flow: The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States is *your* amendment just as much as the 1st or any of the | Read More »
ATF: All Your Amendment are Belong to Us
As far as the ATF is concerned, the words in the Constitution don’t mean what the Founders said they mean. They mean what the 9 unelected judges on the Supreme Court say they mean. Well, until they change their mind, that is. This year, Montana and Tennessee passed the “Firearms Freedom Act” – which under state law exempts firearms, parts and ammunition from federal regulation under | Read More »
Dr Mike Vasovski for Congress – South Carolina 3rd District

Pennsylvania to Consider Nullifying Some Federal Gun Laws
Pennsylvania State Representative Sam Rohrer has introduced the “Firearms Freedom Act” (HB1988) for consideration in the state legislature. The bill is “An Act prohibiting certain firearms, firearm accessories or ammunition from being subject to Federal law or Federal regulation.” HB1988 currently has 48 additional co-sponsors, and according to FirearmsFreedomAct.com, is similar to bills recently enacted into law in both Montana and Tennessee.
In a recent column about Western governments’ treatment of terrorists, the incomparable Thomas Sowell writes: So many “rights” have been conjured up out of thin air that many people seem unaware that rights and obligations derive from explicit laws, not from politically correct pieties. If you don’t meet the terms of the Geneva Convention, then the Geneva Convention doesn’t protect you. If you are not an | Read More »
Ron Paul Idiots with Guns
These guys in Arizona, particularly the one with the loaded Ar-15 strapped to his back in a crowd of people will likely hand us the biggest setback in gun rights once an accident happens. When I saw the story about the Ron Paul nuts parading around the protests the first thing I thought of was a seven year old kid reaching up to “play” with | Read More »
Old Man Defends Property and Lives?! How Awful, sneers the Associated Press
I read about the following over at the always astute VodkaPundit. Not only does it serve to illustrate media stealth bias, but it also shines light on attitudes too prevalent in our society today… personal responsibility? That’s hogwash! Shopkeeper ‘didn’t want to shoot’ robbers** 2 suspects dead, 2 injured after 72-year-old opens fire in New York City NEW YORK – The sidewalk outside the Harlem | Read More »
The 2nd Amendment and Despicable Propaganda Slurs
By the skillful use of social opprobrium, liberal opponents of 2nd Amendment Rights have stigmatized what the Constitution and The Bill of Rights prevent them from legally banning. This approach has yielded palpable results, which we’ve seen in conversation and all over blogs across the land. Yes, we still have the right to keep and bear arms. No, the cool kids don’t want to play with you if you exercise that right. Weisenthal tries so pathetically hard to be cool.
Firearm ownership has unfairly become a proxy by which the prevailingly trendy judge the sophistication, intellect, social class and sanity of the gun owner. If a person meets a stranger and learns nothing else about him except that he owns two AK’s and a 30.06, the mental judgments immediately get formed. With no other information in hand, the average American from a city or a wealthy suburb is likely to classify the gun owner as a raving Wingnut. DHS has to keep a close watch on the sort of person who walks around quoting Thomas Jefferson in unguarded moments.

C.I.F.T.A. and the subjugation of The United States to a single-body world government.
Hi: I had a bit of a wake-up call and am about at the end of my proverbial rope. I’m not ready to drop off the grid, but I’m damn close. C.I.F.T.A. Sounds almost innocent, doesn’t it? Like a Noo Yawk way of aerating baking flour. What is C.I.F.T.A. you ask ? Well, I’ve known of this diabolical monstrosity since 1998 – and went absolutely | Read More »
Please Help Me Fight Another 2nd Amend. Attack
Deval Patrick is at it again with House Bill 4102, which he wants to get out of committee so he can impose a one-gun-a-month restriction on licensed firearm owners, in addition to other restrictions on firearm sales even between family members. If you’re in Massachusetts, please read the release from the NRA-ILA and give me a hand tomorrow calling some of the people on the | Read More »
AP’s Hyperbole Masquerades as Journalism
For the Associated Press, Tim Klass shows that taking liberties with facts by enveloping them in wild hyperbole can sex up a boring story into something much more alarming. Unfortunately, what one ends up with is not a presentation of news, but a promulgation of a narrative that befits a particular political agenda. And this time writer Klass uses his hyperbolic style to advance the | Read More »
America in 2019
The year is 2019 and a once great nation is now a distant memory. For those who witnessed the death of Lady Liberty, reminiscing only adds additional pain to an agonizing realization that her glory was forfeited when America refused to identify obvious red flags. In 2008 a “historic” election transpired that plunged the United States into the darkest hour in human history. Little did her | Read More »
