Second Amendment

by -

Gun ownership has always been a “conservative” thing in the eyes of at least the media. In actuality it’s a “libertarian” thing, but that’s a topic for another day.

Since the 2016 presidential election concluded with Donald Trump coming out on top, some liberals have shifted their view on gun ownership and . . . gasp . . . the second amendment.

Conceptions of liberalism assume that most will not even consider owning a gun; however, a poll conducted by PRRI showed that 32% of Democrats had a firearm in the home.

The key to that statistic is that not all Democrats are liberals.

However, since November gun retailers are reporting a shift in buyers and are seeing many more “non-traditional” buyers walking through their doors.

The report is bolstered by Black Friday sales reports that set another all-time record.

Even a group called “The Liberal Gun Club” which has been around since at least 2010, reports a 10% growth in membership since Donald Trump won the election.

An internal exit poll conducted by the preferred gun club for lefties also showed that 32% of the Liberal Gun Club’s forum members voted for Donald Trump, while 41% voted for Hillary Clinton and 11% voted for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

In late November, NBC News ran with the headline “Trump’s Victory Has Fearful Minorities Buying up Guns.”

The article led with “Yolanda Scott is upgrading the crowbar she keeps in her purse to small-caliber pistol.”

Given the journalistic integrity of NBC News, the report should be taken with a grain of salt. Plus, who carries a crowbar in their purse and how big is that purse?

A quick scan of Twitter shows the reports to be correct as countless liberals are telling the world that they’re now armed:

Many have read the stories of California’s new bans on guns and ammo that include the prohibition on online ammunition sales and the requirement of identification when purchasing ammo in a store; however, some other shocking new laws have remained under the radar for those outside of the increasingly liberal state.

First, and back to gun laws, there is run on guns in California at the moment as “assault” weapons will be officially banned as the state voted on legislation to close the “bullet button” loophole (basically it’s a magazine release that requires a “tool” to use).

Since Californians have a five-day waiting period, the day after Christmas will be the last day they can submit their background check and purchase what will be a banned firearm.

For those current owners of soon-to-be-banned AR’s AK’s and other “evil” rifles, they will be required to register their guns with state law enforcement authorities.

Even more draconian is the new law on “high capacity” magazines. On July 1st, 2017, anyone in possession of a magazine that holds 11 or more rounds will face fines of $100 to $500.

No grandfather clause exists for gun owners and Californians will be required to dispose of banned magazines in one of four ways: ship it out of state, sell to a “licensed firearms dealer”, destroy, or surrender your magazines to law enforcement.

Anyone looking for a deal on magazines would be smart to check California posts on Armslist.com (basically the Craigslist for guns).

Moving on to the bizarre new regulations hitting the Republic of California in 2017, one that specifically stood out was the decriminalization of prostitution that will take place statewide . . . but it’s not what you think.

Only prostitutes under the age of 18 will be safe from arrest and conviction. Whaaat?

Yes, state legislators in their brilliance decided that child prostitution should no longer be a crime as underage prostitutes should be seen as victims and not criminals. They must have missed the movie Taxi Driver.

For those not concerned with the legalization of child prostitution, they may be a bit worried about the new distracted driving laws that limit drives to ONE touch or tap on a mounted phone.

While that may ease distracted driving accidents, the effort is undone with a new laws that requires children under the age of two to be strapped into a REAR FACING child seat.

This demented new law which shows that the majority of California law makers who are likely childless due to homosexuality or preference, love to cram kids in back seats with their legs crunched Indian-style in notorious LA traffic.

Those same children will grow up to attend public schools that have been sanitized of offensive mascots thanks to yet another 2017 law that bans the use of “Redskin” as a mascot name for schools.

As Californians enjoy their new laws, they should realize that this is just the start of the madness as another new law gives “low-level” felons the right to vote.

Way to go guys!

For criminals interested a little car jacking, they would be wise to avoid a four door white pickup on their streets.

As shown in this video, an armed criminal attempts to scare the occupant of this truck from the driver’s seat, but as a pedestrian clears the line of fire, the would-be-thief gets crumpled by the bullets that spray through the driver’s side window.

The video, which was posted on Instragram, seems to be authentic although no other details are given about what appears to be security camera footage.

second amendment

In the Preface to their new book, “Shall Not Be Infringed,” David Keene and Thomas Mason, two veteran Second Amendment advocates, include a quote from former President Ronald Reagan:

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in their bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same . . .

Reagan uttered those words not during his two terms as president but in 1961, several years before he was first elected to public office. While the former president’s words might not have been delivered in the precise context of the Second Amendment, Keene and Mason quote him here because his admonition to all Americans of all generations, that freedom is not a self-executing principle but must be fought for by every generation, is particularly acute right now, in the election fast upon us.

A central theme of “Shall Not Be Infringed” is that, despite her efforts to soften her express words, President Hillary Clinton would take steps to do precisely what candidate Hillary Clinton has vowed to do – undermine the fundamental Supreme Court ruling in the 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller opinion, that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to keep and bear arms. Second Amendment supporters and opponents alike understand that if you overturn that underpinning of Heller, you open the door for all manner of government actions to not just “chip away” at how an individual chooses to exercise his or her Second Amendment rights, but measure to effectively deny any ability to exercise them in the first place. This clearly will be a litmus test for any Supreme Court nominee submitted by Clinton.

In addition to detailing some of the ways in which the Obama administration has moved to place restrictions on Second Amendment rights without pressing for legislative measures (which would be the proper, constitutional procedure to employ), authors Keene and Mason spend considerable time explaining why the anti-gun actions of the United Nations is a very relevant and timely topic for discussion this election.

Why and how the United Nations is involved actively in gun control are very good questions; especially when voters consider where a President Hillary Clinton would stand on the Second Amendment.

The United Nations is – if nothing else – one of the best, if not the best bureaucracies in the entire world. The bureaucratic behemoth on the East River in New York City has turned the concept of “mission creep” into a true art form. Since its formation in the immediate aftermath of World War II as an international organization to promote peace and limit chances for another catastrophic world conflict, the UN has created a maze of bureaucracies that would make Rube Goldberg envious.

Recognizing that most member nation governments never want to appear to not be supporting the UN’s peace efforts, and mindful of the basic law of bureaucracies that once an office is funded the first time it is almost certain to be funded each year thereafter, the UN over the years successfully morphed its general mission for peace and [nuclear] disarmament into a mandate to fight international trafficking in illicit firearms (with the term “illicit” left purposefully vague). This formal effort was launched in the summer of 2001, and has continued to gain funding and support for 15 years.

Why, the reader might ask, is this a problem for gun owners in the United States? It is quite simple actually — the UN knows it cannot implement any meaningful system of tracking the movement of firearms internationally, unless there exists a system for knowing what firearms exist within each member state and when those firearms cross a border. Bingo! Gun registry. And that’s but the tip of the ATT iceberg.

Keene and Mason understand all this. They also understand how quickly a proposal that appears non-threatening one day, can the next day become terribly real and problematic.

For example, throughout the eight years of the George W. Bush administration, the U.S. consistently opposed adoption by the UN of the ATT. However, shortly after becoming Secretary of State in 2009, Hillary Clinton reversed that policy, and the ATT was adopted by the General Assembly in April 2013. The Treaty now awaits action by the US Senate after having been signed in September 2013 by Clinton’s successor at Foggy Bottom, John Kerry.

The very real problem in 2017 if former Secretary of State Clinton becomes President Hillary Clinton, and especially if she wins a Democrat majority in the Senate? The Arms Trade Treaty, already on the shelf awaiting Senate action, could quickly and quietly be dusted off, brought to the floor for a vote, and passed. And that, my friends, is a major reason why every voter who supports the Second Amendment, should read “Shall Not Be Infringed” . . . before November 8th.
