Washington, DC—Creating lists of law-abiding Americans with firearms has no benefits whatsoever. Guns are almost never left at crime scenes and when they are learning the legal owners identity is usually meaningless because the offender is either captured or killed.
There are two U.S. Supreme Court cases that make it clear that persons precluded by law from owning firearms cannot be forced to register their guns or face prosecution when they don’t. Registration violates their rights against self-incrimination.
We all saw the recent fallout from the names and personal information being published by a Leftist newspaper trying to somehow shame gun owners. That list also told every thug, rapist and killer where to find unarmed and helpless victims.
Proponents of registration schemes claim that gun registration is harmless and no different than drivers and automobile licensing. They’re dead wrong because driving or owning a car is not constitutionally protected activity. The license to keep and bear arms is the Second Amendment! I should add that charging citizens a fee to exercise their right to keep and bear arms is no more lawful that the Poll Taxes of the Deep South.
Canada had a gun registry for decades that was incredibly expensive, wasteful and ineffective. They finally saw the light and jettisoned it for good. Remember Canada has no express right to own firearms like America does.
Gun rights are set aside for combatting government tyranny and for self-defense. We should not be relegated only antique or ineffective arms for this purpose. The U.S. Supreme Court called the suggestion that the Second Amendment only protected the kind of muskets that were available at the time of its promulgation frivolous in the recent Heller case. The Heller case really covers the M-4/AR-15 and magazine capacity issues adequately.
Registering gun owners like sex offenders and felons serves no purpose except to harass and infringe on the rights of your fellow Americans. That is in itself unlawful.
We must also remember the millions of soldiers buried in veteran’s cemeteries that gave their lives so we could have the freedom and liberty that Barack Obama and his cronies are trying to take from Americans. Millions of us are ready to take up arms to defend those rights like the Minutemen of our Revolutionary War once again. Please, let’s not force gun owners to take to the streets to protect their Constitutional rights again. The fact is that we will if that becomes necessary because of any act of war against Americans by tyrannical government actions.
The very politicians and bureaucrats that are pushing this oppression will be the very first targets for armed resistance.
says he is an advocate for simple, commonsense solutions...
Bar those with a history of serious mental instability or violent crime from owning weapons; (Those that are in wars suffer from PTSS so it is ok for them to be in a war and use weapons but not have them when they are back at home in America)
Outlaw the sale of weapons that are strictly for military use and have no useful purpose in sport, hunting, or self defense; (To defend against tyranny the guns must be equal)
Ban magazine clips with more than ten rounds from civilian use; (It only takes one round to kill a person?)
Restrict the number of firearms a person can buy in a month (What good would this do?)
Require firearms within the reach of children to have protective locks. (Why should firearms be within the reach of children?)
This isnt going to end well. Folks are going to get shot.
So tell me Mr. and Ms. gun banner....would you feel better if the Newtown shooter had shown up with a double barrel shotgun and revolver?
Gun grabbers are full of hooey, they want to get all the guns and are just starting the same battle all over again, getting their foot in the door with the ultimate goal a total prohibition of firearms. If you're not a member of the NRA you should be.
Re: Torture Memos and A President's Constitutional Authority
A series of Office of Legal Counsel's memos over the decade before Jay Bybee’s 2002 Torture memo had concluded that the president’s constitutional authority created implicit exceptions to the disclosure limitations and the secrecy requirements of the existing grand jury rules. Bybee’s memo doubled down on this extension of executive power, however, offering an almost impossibly narrow reading of the law’s remaining oversight and accountability mechanisms.
Torture Memos can easily be directed at the American People. It is already happening!
Great article,the last sentence is so true.
As always Paul, you're right on the money with your sound wisdom.
In 2011 there were 323 folks killed by automatic rifles. The same year 496 died from blows from a claw hammer. 12,000 foks died from encounter with drunk drivers and that same year 195,000 folks died because of medical malpractice.
Soooo, you are 600 times more likely to die by using your Obamacare than by an automatic rifle. You feel ill yet???? We will see!
