Gun Control Is A Myth: The Second Amendment Stands Strong Or Not At All – Part 1

Is loss of the Second Amendment a price too high? For Democrats, it isn't. Just ask them.
Read Part Two.

Democrat's War on Guns
The Second Amendment: The Cornerstone Of American Liberty

New York – -( “I know that the issue of gun control is hard. . . . I know it's political. I know it's controversial. I say to you, forget the extremists! It's simple — no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer, and too many innocent people have died already! End this madness — now!” ~ Quotation from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State speech, delivered on January 10, 2013, five days before he signed the New York Safe Act into law, asserting his fervent hope that the New York gun control Act will produce the “toughest assault weapons ban in the nation.”

“Reinstating the federal assault weapons ban that was in effect from 1994 to 2004 would prohibit manufacture and sales, but it would not affect weapons already possessed. This would leave millions of assault weapons in our communities for decades to come.

Instead, we should ban possession of military-style semiautomatic assault weapons, we should buy back such weapons from all who choose to abide by the law, and we should criminally prosecute any who choose to defy it by keeping their weapons. The ban would not apply to law enforcement agencies or shooting clubs.” ~Quotation from Op-Ed by Representative Eric Swalwell, Democrat-California, published in USA Today, on May 3, 2018; urging for a mandatory and universal ban on “assault weapons.”

Never in the history of this Nation have we, Americans, seen such blatant, such willful, such outrageous and confounding assaults on the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution as we have seen during the first two decades of the 21st Century. This essential unalienable right—the right of the people to keep and bear arms, a statement at once succinct, categorical, and clear—serves as the linchpin and cornerstone of our free Republic.

The Second Amendment is an ever-present reminder that Government serves at the behest of the American people; not at its own pleasure for its own benefit; for its own aims.

The Second Amendment: The Cornerstone Of American Liberty

The Second Amendment serves a threefold purpose. One, it signals, and is meant to signal, to Government, that ultimate power and authority resides in the American people, not in Government; never in Government. Two, the Second Amendment operates as an omnipresent reminder to those who serve in Government—and who, either through deliberate design and chicanery or through mere reckless conduct, oppress the American citizenry and who seek to impose tyranny on the American people—that Americans have, by dint of force of arms, both the means and the moral obligation to reclaim power from usurpers. And, three, the Second Amendment encapsulates the immutable idea of the sanctity, autonomy, dignity, and inviolability of each American citizen.

What does this third salient point mean? Just this: it means each of us is ultimately responsible for his or her life, safety and well-being, and each of us is responsible for his or her own happiness.

The ownership and possession of firearms is a potent symbol of the value the founders of a free Republic placed on the worth of each American. This fact isn’t lost on the radical Left in this Country that seeks to divide Americans into specious groups comprising “victims” and “those who would enslave them.” It does this to play one group off against the other. It is a game the radical Left invented. It is called, “identity politics.” But, why is the radical Left employing this, and who is really behind the radical Left’s efforts?

Consider: There exist individuals in the world, today, who have amassed vast wealth. That wealth is concentrated in but a few hands. These individuals also wield immense power; and they exert that influence in business, in our institutions of government, in our institution of education and in the massive media sector. They perceive the U.S. Constitution to be inimical to their goal—the goal of a one world government, grounded in one uniform political, financial, social, cultural, educational, and legal system of governance. They see the United States, a Nation of great military might, as one with great potential for them—one that can serve them well. But there is a catch. The U.S. Constitution does not permit subordination of the United States to any other Nation, group of Nations, or interest groups. That presents a problem for them. They see the mass of humanity as an inchoate, mindless, dangerous elemental force of nature; less governed by reason; and more by instinct. They see this unruly elemental force of nature as one requiring constant control, guidance, supervision and structure: top to bottom rule. That portends absolute subjugation of a free people, and an open invitation to tyranny.

These secretive, powerful, ruthless overseers that seek to control the lives, actions, and thoughts of Americans will not, cannot abide an American citizenry that has, as a matter of right, access to firearms. So, they denigrate the Second Amendment. They have determined that Americans must be reeducated; they must learn to view gun ownership and possession as a vestige of an earlier time, an earlier age, no longer necessary or acceptable in a modern “civilized” age of globalization and neoliberalism, over which they, alone, seek to rule, and to rule with an iron fist.

The arguments against firearms ownership and possession are delivered endlessly and vociferously to the public. The arguments are delivered through both a compliant Press and through accommodating politicians. That is how propaganda works; and it has, unfortunately, worked well on many Americans. But it is a long, tedious, drawn-out process. The overseers of a new transnational system of governance have patience, but their patience is growing thin, and they are adopting new, ever more egregious methods such as boycotts and direct legal actions against gun manufacturers. And, they are contriving new ways to attack NRA, and they are attempting to drive a wedge between NRA and its members—millions of Americans.

Through a miscarriage of justice, the Connecticut Supreme Court, in the recent case, Soto v. Bushmaster Firearms Int’l, LLC, 331 Conn. 53, 202 A.3d 262 (Conn. 2019), overturned the comprehensive well-reasoned decision of the lower Connecticut Superior Court. The State Supreme Court ruled that Party Plaintiffs— comprising survivors of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting and the estates of those murdered by the lunatic, Adam Lanza, can proceed with their action against the gun manufacturer, even in the absence of privity between the gun manufacturer and plaintiffs. That Plaintiffs may proceed with their action against the gun manufacturer turns products liability law and the law of torts on its head. The decision of the Connecticut Supreme Court is also inconsistent with federal law. The case is an egregious example of Courts legislating from the Bench. Those jurists who detest the very existence of the Second Amendment, do not hesitate to use their judicial powers to subvert the Second Amendment.

If plaintiffs prevail in their lawsuit, gun manufacturers may very well go out of business. The Soto case poses a serious challenge to the Second Amendment. The case is likely to go up to the U.S. Supreme Court, whichever side prevails in it. If the high Court takes the case, the decision that is handed down will have the most serious impact on the import and purport of the Second Amendment since the seminal 2008 Heller case and the subsequent seminal 2010 McDonald case. The Arbalest Quarrel will, in a subsequent article, provide a comprehensive analysis of the Connecticut Supreme Court decision, given its singular importance and significance.

Apart from use of the courts to subvert the Second Amendment, anti-gun groups are waging war on the Second Amendment on the legislative front, both in Congress and in the States. The attack being waged against the right of the people to keep and bear arms in Congress and in the State Legislatures, on the one hand, and in the State and Federal Courts, on the other hand, constitutes two simultaneous avenues of direct assault on our sacred Second Amendment.

If a Democrat wins the White House in 2020, expect to see the Second Amendment attacked by the new Chief Executive, issuing a flurry of executive orders to curtail exercise of the fundamental right embodied in the Second Amendment. Obama attempted to do that. Hillary Clinton would have continued to do so had she prevailed in the 2016 election. And, a Democrat holding the Oval Office in 2020, will most certainly continue that effort. No doubt about it.

Candidates running for the Democratic Party nomination have made their strong antipathy toward the Second Amendment plain. In fact, at a recent CNN sponsored Town Hall event, as reported in Newsweek, Democratic Party candidate, Kamala Harris, stated, in no uncertain terms:

“Upon being elected, I will give the United States Congress 100 days to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws. And if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action.”

Misuse of the Office of the U.S. President by the Democratic (Socialist) Party would constitute yet a third front against the Second Amendment; worse yet for the American people if Democrats secure majorities in both the House and Senate in 2020. This scourge of Democrats, and those who support them–those who rail vehemently, endlessly, sanctimoniously against our Nation, against our Nation's unique history, against our rich cultural heritage, against our Judeo-Christian ethic, and against our sacrosanct and inviolate Constitution–must be thwarted. We stand to lose everything we hold most dear if we fail.

    1. The fact is the 2nd amendment is a shadow of what it was when the founders put it in. For instance, how many of you in this thread, and I did make the effort to see and couldn’t find any, realize that the first 13 words of the 2nd amendment were pretty much done away with in 1903 with the Dick act which was penned by a real dick. Those 13 words may be the MOST IMPORTANT 13 words in the whole constitution…and they have been tossed in the trash bin of history. Without the MILITIAS how do we stand against tyranny? One by one? Haaa…that will be a fair fight. But if we can work QUICKLY to get the militias back into effect through state legislatures, we have a chance to curb this insanity. Remember what they say? A WELL REGULATED MILITIA being NECESSARY for the SECURITY of a FREE STATE…and it isn’t a “free state of Arkansas or Kansas or means a FREE STATE OF BEING folks. YOUR free state. MY free state. Without it we have a snow balls chance in hell or a lot of fleas attacking a BIG dog.

    2. Gun safety laws work. responsible gun owners embrace gun safety. The profit motive of gun and ammo manufacturers result in their denying these basic concepts. Which should tell you all you need to know about the NRA and other guns everywhere organizations devoted top selling firearms and death.

      1. Hey Och, you may want to revise your claim who sells more guns in america! In fact I’ll bet some have purchased a new firearm in your honor whenever you post your anti-gun drivel.

        Americans Have Bought Over 100 Million Guns During Obama’s Presidency.

        Gun Sales Down After Obama Boom Years.

        The Gun Industry Says It Has Grown 158% Since Obama Took Office.

    3. Ridiculous article loaded with disinformation and ignorance as well ast he standard far right extremism Ammo Land readers thrive on. Gun safety laws work. States with stricter gun safety laws have lower gun violence per capita rates than states with lax gun safety laws. Responsible gun owners embrace gun safety. The NRA has fought against gun safety laws since the 1960’s when RFK, JFK and MLK were gunned down. Now, the NRA is nothing more than a front group for the gun industry. The NRA sells fear and fake patriotism and threats of armed insurrection to its gullible remaining members.
      No thinking, decent American, familiar with our gun violence epidemic(the worst gun violence rate per capita of any developed nation) supports the NRAs “guns everywhere” , far right extremist fear and fake patriotism propaganda.
      You would think that AmmoLand would realize that encouraging irresponsible and threatening far right gun extremism isn’t good for companies that sell firearms. Our gun culture has turned into assault rifles with large capacity magazines designed for killing as many enemy combatants as possible on the battlefield as something the average Joe needs to have several of. Big bucks for the gun industry. Rampant corruption and a threat to the safety of other Americans. Unacceptable cr/p.

      1. Finaly someone gets it guns everywhere, everyone with guns. We need to pass a national manatory gun ownership law to force every home to have at least two loaded guns. Glad to see we are making progress. Pokestickeye.

      2. You are uninformed to say the least! Get a grip do some research .I would almost bet you have never been around firearms and I don’t think you should.

      3. We’re not far right. We’re normal. Constitutionally normal. You are the one who is lost. You can’t control evil and violence by disarming the public and making them victims. The problem is that you’ve been duped by the Rousseau philosophy of the progressive Marxists that believe that the only thing that isn’t evil is the government. Which is why Marxism feels justified in exterminating millions of people. You wouldn’t know this, though. They stopped teaching history in school 30+ years ago.

      4. SOMEday or night, when one of the sainted members of society from your side of the political spectrum come “knocking” on your door, you ARE going to wish that you possessed the one thing that put TEETH in your liberty AND THAT YOU HAD A CLUE AS TO HOW TO USE IT. The fact that you exist in such a state of relative liberty and safety is provided by the fact that so many of your neighbors and others DO possess them and, for now at least, the leftist angels have to roll the dice and GUESS who does and does not. Would you be willing to place a very large sign in your front yard that expresses how much you hate guns and the idea of self defense with same and that you WILL NOT ALLOW a neighbor to intervene on your behalf? Yeah . . . . didn’t think so. (Or else you really are more unhinged and mentally/psychologically impaired than I even thought you were.)

    4. I don’t post much on Ammoland as almost every time I post something, I get this nice note about being Moderated before my post is printed, i now just read the other Posts. I have read their reasons that certain people get this and if they are true to the 1st Amendment why Moderate, these are only opinions!

    5. Once again, law abiding citizens with functioning cause and effect genes have been misled, and misdirected into even thinking that guns are the issue. The issue is the communist/socialist/democrats without any cause, and effect genes, taking over the country. The first thing they have to do is get rid of anyone with functioning cause and effect genes. They will do this by using the useful idiot (stalins definition) to act as human shields, and lemmings, in pushing we the people towards the cliff!

    6. Are they hoping to divide hunters who only own low capacity bolt and lever guns from other gun owners with the “hunters don’t need X” red herring? Or trying to seem somehow reasonable or willing compromise? Because the Constitution mentions nothing about hunting rights. It does imply that citizens should have no infringement to owning and keeping “weapons of war”. So when you get down to it, protecting hunting rights is far subordinate to gun rights generally. I guess more words makes more ways to distract people though.

      Toss the red herrings back and fish the real issues.

      1. Bill, the constitution doesn’t imply or state that citizens can own weapons of war. They can’t. We have public safety laws that ban weapons of war from public ownership. The 2nd A doesn’t grant any rights.

        1. According to the leftist we do own “weapons of war” !!! The constitution(BILL OF RIGHTS) reiterates our RIGHTS given to us by our creator!
          Yes America Citizens do have the RIGHT to “weapons of war” If the leftist try to seize guns then the US will fall as a nation. The military will turn on the leftist. Because we gun owners comprise most of the military. As gun owners comprise the fourth largest army. If the military does turn on it’s own people just imagine the bloodshed of millions all in the name of safety! There are numerous Militias that are out there and some are very heavily armed and ready for a fight.

        2. True, it does not “grant” rights, because it recognizes and protects rights that are God-given and INHERENTLY possessed by MANKIND by virtue of their existence and living soul.

          The Constitution DOES recognize the valid possession of “weapons of war” by the very mention of the (unorganized) citizen militia – “the people.” THE PEOPLE were required to provide and bring their own weapons which HAD TO BE suitable for militia (MILITARY) use. The Constitution and laws of the time didn’t allow for advancements in arms technology? Yes they did. It was expressly stated that they were to be military-type weapons of the type “in common use AT THE TIME.” This was made clear by the decree stated in the Militia Acts of 1792 and 1862 and recognized by the Supreme Court in U.S. v Miller (1939). For your instruction, the Court stated that because (to their knowledge, but they were wrong on the facts) a sawed-off or short-barreled shotgun WAS NOT A STANDARD MILITARY-ISSUE INVENTORIED WEAPON it was not protected under the 2nd Amendment FOR CIVILIAN POSSESSION.

          We CAN (and many citizens DO) possess military-grade weapons, including artillery, tanks, fighter aircraft, etc. IF we can afford them. Many, if not most, of our “warships” with cannon were privately owned merchant vessels in our early history. Have you heard of a little “incident” in regards to a certain cannon in Texas?? Privately owned by the people. The Mexicans stole it, they got it back and DARED them to try to come and take it again.

          Either educate and inform yourself OR quit spewing lies. Whichever applies to you. Doesn’t matter to me (and many/most others here) which it is.

    7. People, Gun Control is not a Myth and should be practiced at all times, if you don’t control your gun you won’t hit anything! So control those guns with B.R.A.S.S. Breath, Relax, Aim, Slack, Squeeze..

      1. You are right, gun control is not a myth, it’s a standard, current communist tactic, (subunit of gun confiscation) employed by the communist democ rats, and other useful idiots with no cause and effect genes, on a daily basis. You should have broken the communist term down into law abiding citizen components. Sight alignment, and trigger control. The only ultimate, effective way to deal with those without the cause and effect gene.

      2. In Texas, it’s breath, relax, aim, slack, spit, squeeze! (BRASSS) Although the Marines shoulda used the word press instead of squeeze!

      3. What’s with all this “law abiding citizen” crap? They mean to make us criminals without a crime being committed. I gave up that nomenclature a long time ago.

    8. To Cuomo and all of the other diatribes, lead by example. Show all how brave you are. Walk the walk, since you talk the talk! Cancel the armed guards. Go about like you want all others to be, helpless into the big bad world. Too much? Well, have your guards not carry any weapons with magazines…. maybe black powder revolvers instead? You say no one needs these weapons. Prove it or STFU.

      1. There is no such thing as an assault rifle, except in german ww2 history museums. There are rifles, and carbines, of the pump/bolt action/muzzleloading, or semi auto variety. The term “assault rifle” is just another term drummed up by the fake news useful idiots, and people who don’t pay attention to detail, who get suckered into using the communist democ rat misleading terms to further the communist democ rats gun confiscation program.

    9. Tyrant Cuomo said this:
      quote ”
      “no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer, and too many innocent people have died already!”

      You’ve obviously never hunted feral hog, or coyote. They run in packs, and are experts at teamwork. Few go after either alone, a small group. And everyone is armed with small calibre handy rifles.. and the AR is perfect for this. And yes, they use 30 round mags, and some even fifty rund drum mags. WHY? When a pack of 30 hogs decides you are lunch, you NEED more than five rounds to NOT become their lunch. Simple maths.

      no one need ten rounds for deer hunting: two things. Not one state I know of allows the tiny little cartridge the “assault weapons” use for the taking of deer.. the round is too small, too puny, and cannot be relied upon to make a clean kill for the harvesting of deer. Also, no state I know of allows a capacity of more than FIVE rounds for the taking of game animals. So your “assault weapon as deer rifle” argument falls flat on its ugly face.

      I have read of actual cases where one homeowner was invaded at night by surprise by FIVE armed housebreakers. He managed to retrieve his “assault rifle” (because he was being assaulted, and thus needed it) with a thirty round magazine in it, full… he fired at the gang, hit two who died, a third who managed to make ti hospital then conveniently died there, and some rounds at the other two as they ran off into the night, their britches likely full of brown stuff…. they were later apprehended. He fired a total of fifteen rounds, at least… had he been restricted to only five, or even ten, he likely would have been killed by one of them he had not yet taken out of action.

      WHO ARE YOU, (as you hide behind your publically funded large heavily armed security team everywhere you go, including Jamaica where NO ONE is allowed to be armed but then, “you’re SPESHULL”, aren’t you?) to tell ME what I need to see to “the security of a free state”, particulary as regards MY personal home? You now NOTHING of where I live. HOW can YOU determine what I need? I don’t have your tax dollar supported professional goon squad to see to “the security of Y free state” where I live. So I’ll make those calls for myself, thanks all the same.

      You nannies have trouble keeping your own bunghole clean, yet you try to micromanage every detail of MY life?

      1. I have coyotes here in the pack all over the place and they run through the cow herd at about 30 mph. minimum speed. If you’re out there when they come through you can be lunch especially if you have a limp because they will go right after the wounded first. High cap mags help to stay alive. I have Timber Wolves, Bear and every other meat eating critter also plus a very high criminal element far out from any town so I’m totally self reliant. Nobody dictates to me how I defend my life especially this far out in the Badlands. I even have jihadis close by and that is why they got that gun control psyop to disarm Americans so we can be murdered by jihadis while they laugh as planned. Local jihadis fly the US flag and the Marine Corp flag as cover to hide behind. Gov taught them well. Be advised.

      1. Yeah and let’s instigate all they deep state traitors from 8 Chan attempting to infiltrate our board today to quell our rebellion of free speech. They are bored on 8 chan barking each other up with their bullsheet so now they’re here for some action in between writing some new American Dad cartoons. Denny Crane/Q Psyop has time on its hands and no audience over there due to stupid agenda.

    10. Any day of the week you can get a discussion started on the 2A and how the progressives are running over us to try and take our guns away. The main problem is that it is only lip service. You will not get your freedoms back by running your mouth and arguing. These government workers, all of them, are our employees. We pay every dollar of their salary and benefits, both are outlandishly high. Each and every one of us have a duty and a right to express our misuse of of the government we control. That is done by voting. Some of the sloths will slip through the cracks but the majority will be sent home. Look at NJ, for instance, very few voted so you have a power hungry clown running the state with a turban as AG.They are making life hard for the honest people who stayed home or at work instead of voting.
      Think about paying these asshats out of our hard earned money to rule over us and tell us they are smarter than we are. So we should just shut up and take whatever they dish out to us. That is the sheeples way of doing things.

    11. While I agree with the breadth of this writing the fact remains that Obama may have ATTEMPTED to and Hillary surely WOULD have done, what Trump DID:
      -from the post-
      “Issuing a (sic) executive orders to curtail exercise of the fundamental right embodied in the Second Amendment.

      Whether or not bump stock are junkk or not is besides the point. The point is that a US president (republican none the less!) exercised executive power to further chip away at the rights of firearms owners.

      That action opens the gates and sets an example for any would be dems to come and use the same power now to appease their base or funders or what ever it may be.

    12. As much as I agree with the breadth of this writing, the fact remains that Obama may have ATTEMPTED to and Hillary surely WOULD have tried, to do what Trump actually DID:

      “Issuing a (sic) executive orders to curtail exercise of the fundamental right embodied in the Second Amendment.”

      Whether or not bump stocks are pieces of shit or not is besides the point. The point is that a US president (a republican none the less!) exercised excutive power to chip away further at firearm rights.

      That move opened the gate and has set an example now for any would be dem to do the same as they see fit, to appease their base or funders or whatever it may be.

      1. I believe you are correct – the flood gates are now open – Kamala Harris says if she is elected, she will “give” Congress 100 days to pass more controlling laws on the law abiding or she too, like Trump did, will exercise some executive action or order.

        If the Supremes do not reverse these draconian controlling tactics, it’s gonna get ugly. Prosecutions of those who refuse to comply, yes those who legally engaged in commerce and purchased a product legal to sell, to buy and to possess, now deemed felons, jury nullification is last hope before all out rebellion by an armed citizenry.

        An armed citizenry is what servants like Swawell of CA and the like fear the most. He demands the American citizenry be as the Venezuelan citizenry and we see how that is working out for the people there.

            1. I’m all for the peaceful process but it has failed about 100 years ago and today because of our failure they demand conflict. Nancy says “prepare for violence”. Muslim Congress says white people must be obolished from USA. Go ahead to the jury box and see how far you get because so far you have gotten nowhere.

            2. Occasionally, yes. The ballot box and jury nullification have OCCASIONALLY proven effective in the past… but that happenstance cannot be reliably resorted to at this time, in this changing society. “The good old days” are rapidly going away.

        1. that Willie Ho Kamala Harris can NOT run for president. She is NOT quailfied. Neither of her parents were US Citizens at the time of her birth. Thus she is not a Natural Born CItizen.

          WHEN will someone with some clout call her on this? She needs to be taken down to proper size sooner rather than later. If that train gets much further down the hill the mob-excitement factor will sweep that issue aside. Then we’d havve the SECOND president ever, in the same century no less, who is NOT a Natural Born Citizen, has divided loyalties, and is NOT “one of us” at the heml of state.

          1. Yeah, Barry fooled them too.
            If Trump got every single vote in 2020 they will still steal the election. They are not going to let him in and it will be the flashpoint.

          2. Why don’t you walk down to the local police station and turn her in for running for president? If you weren’t such a little chicken shit you’d take action yourself.

      2. Not quite. Trump did NOT issue an executive order in this instance. He asked BATF to make it happen. HUGE difference. And BATF did NOT do their thing according to law, which is why it is being challenged. Yes, BATF are an Executive Branch agency, and thus ONLY able to eforce existing law. They have NO AUTHORITY to make law, that falls to COngress alone. Their new “rule” has the effect of law, until overturned, but it also violates the US Constitution’s prohibitions against ex post facto laws, and taking of property without due process and compensation.

        BATF need taken to the woodshed for their failure to abide by their oaths of office.. each of those oafs in those offices had to swear they would abide by the US Constituton. Charge them with felony perjury for swearing that oath then failing to keep it. That would be rich… no guns for ATF officers and desk jockeys!!Tionico

      3. The Democrat Socialist Party doesn’t need anyone to “open the gate” to illegal executive action. While I agree that our President made a mistake on bump stocks, it was small enough when weighed against all the good he has done in restoring America to her rightful place in the world. The economy is booming, the Paris “climate treaty” and the UN “small arms accord” are bad memories, and we have a President who is a proven friend of the Second Amendment and the rule of law under the Constitution. All true patriots must unite, as we did in 2016, to re-elect one of the best Presidents in our history. The alternative is frightening and unthinkable.

        1. If you read the “bumpstock ban,” it appears to be a sleight-of-hand move to fool the simple-minded lefties. The way it is worded appears to be designed to fail a challenge, due to the facts that originally cleared them for sale in the first place. A bumpstock explicitly operates via a “separate function (pull) of the trigger.”

    13. Anyone who believes the Second Amendment does not help protect us from tyranny need only look at Venezuela. First they came for the guns, then for everything else.

      For those historically minded, simply read the Federalist Papers and other writings from America’s Founders. Read the great works of the Enlightenment and learn about Natural Rights.

      For more recent history, observe how dictators and other totalitarian regimes make disarming the populace a top priority.

    14. Being a resident of upstate New York, the “Empire State”, no one up here pays much attention to our current emperor’s rants and his SAFE Act. Many are very ready when the time comes!!

      1. I’m with you and the time is coming. If we refuse to fight for our freedom we will have none. Talk is over, means nothing, action is coming. To hell with their Muslim New World Order. When you see their U.N. troops give them the lead. The clock is ticking.
        USA, USA, USA, USA, USA, USA,

    15. I bet the Venezuela people wish now they would have refused the confiscation of their firearms by the corrupt government.

      Ironically, even the anti-gun CNN recently stated when the Venezuela people gave up their guns, and only the military now have guns, and the military is controlled by a corrupt leader, the people are reduced to throwing rocks.

      Politicians fearful of an armed citizenry are up to no good. They attack law abiding gun owners purportedly to keep guns out of hands of criminals, which history shows is “designed” to be an absolute failure as crime continues resulting in more controlling legislation passed upon the law abiding.

      Is every new gun law a politicians inadvertent admittance that their prior gun control legislation failed or correctly stated, each controlling law is designed to purposely perfect their agenda of total confiscation?

      You decide……..

    16. These type assault weapons are NOT covered by the 2nd amendment. Look it up if you don’t believe me. But it’s the truth. Also how can we still be talking about this after Sandy Hook?!

      1. You’re misinformed. The 2nd amendment does NOT state that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed unless you own an “assault weapon” (which is a made up term in case you didn’t know). Also if you think that the founding fathers didn’t know that guns would be able to fire more than one bullet without reloading then I would suggest doing some research. There were several types of firearms present during that time that fired more than one round.

      2. Even after it has been explained to you “connie” you are still pushing your anti 2nd amendment beliefs. It is my right to own any rifle that the Government may use to oppress me or mine. They’re plenty of country’s who’s ideals align with yours. Go live in one of them!!!!! You have proven you don’t deserve to live in this one. You cannot have my Rights!!!! Bye Felicia!!!!!!

      3. Wow, does your copy of the US Constitution and BOR read differently from mine? Could you post a link that your 2nd Amendment states except assault weapons (No such thing assault weapons BTW). We’ll wait!!!

      4. News flash for ya, “connie”. Several points.
        For one thing, at the time of our War for Independance, there existed long guns (rifles) that could, and did, fire up to FORTY rounds of .69 calibre lead ball (the most common type of ammunition in the day) without reloading or stopping.. one ball for every pull of the trigger, it would reload and be ready for the next round in less than a second. This in contrast to the typical British Regular who required near two full minutes to reload and be ready to fire a second round. And they who wrote the Constitiion were well aware of this weapon.
        EVEN SO, they clearly stated, by the use of the term “arms”, that WE THE PEOPLE have the unfettered RIGHT to own, carry about, use, make, repair, buy, sell, etc, any weapon of military usefulness that could be deployed by an individual acting alone. That means that today’s fifty calibre machine guns, shoulder fired rockets and missiles, fully automatoc belt fed machine guns, hand grenades, are lawful, per the Constitutoin for normal citizens to own and use.

        YOU need to “look it up”.
        And what about Sandy Hook? That man committed at least FORTY felonies before he ever showed up at the school property. Ya think one more, the possession of an imitation army rifle stolen from the Mother he murdered, would have stopped him?

        Further, didjya watch the video footage of the first Medical Examiner to enter the building after the perp was stopped? His report… given to the TeeVee cameras on the front porch of the building immediately he exited, declared ” ALL the victims I saw were killed by handgun fire at relatively close range”.
        I also watched the video taken from an overhead surveilance helicopter as the poilice opened the trunk of the car he alledgedly drove to the school site… reports are that he “never drove”, so riddle me that one…. and removed what the mainstream press called a “Bushmaster assault weapon”… funy thing,as I watched the tape of the officer clearing the weapon of live rounds I observed a few things: first, there WAS no detachable magazine, the magizine was a tube under the barrel. Bushmasters and their kind all have detachable magazines, so right there this was NOT a “Bushmaster assault weapon”. Second, the live rounds being ejected from the chamber were long yellow cylinders, perhaps three inches long, and nearly an inch in diameter. Those were SHOTGUN SHELLS. Bushmasters and such use a round that’s perhaps half inch diameter at the back, tapering to a quarter inch for the bullet itself, and are perhaps an inch and a half long. Second reason that was NOT a “Bushmaster”. The shape of the receiver and stock on that weapon tells me it is perhaps a Saiga semi automatic 12 guage shotgun. A duck hunting gun. NOT a military weapon at all, yet still legal for us to own.
        We never saw any information regarding ballistics testing of things like recovered shell casings, or spent projectiles. NO PROOF an “assault rifle” was used in the actual killing. What evidence we HAVE been allowed to see points unequivocally to handguns…

        so NOW whatchya gonna do?

      5. The Second Amendment was written to protect the people’s right to keep and bear arms roughly equivalent to those used by the military at the time. The mention of a “well-regulated miltia” was added because, at the time the Bill of Rights was written, local and state militias played a key part in the nation’s defense. The Left has consistently misrepresented the 2nd Amendment as limiting the right to bear arms to only those in the “militia”. The anti-gunners deliberately ignore the fact that, at that time, all adult males capable of bearing and using firearms were required to enroll in local or state militia units, and to train regularly in the military tactics of the time. In order to accomplish this, militia members needed to keep arms similar to those in common use in the regular military. In the “old days”, that meant muzzle-loading muskets or rifles. Today, selective- fire weapons are restricted by the Firearms Act of 1934(passed, BTW, under a Democrat president and Congress in a panic over “gangsters” armed with automatic weapons) to the military. However, the ” unorganized militia” still exists under law, and semi-auto firearms like the AR-15, legal for civilian posession, are the modern rough equivalent of contemporary military arms in use by the armed forces. I am tired of constantly explaining the facts about the militia”, as understood by the Founders, being a civilian adjunct to the active- duty military, and thus needing similar firearms to the military in order to be ready for duty should the need arise. Private firearms were also seen by the Founders as a last-ditch means to resist a tyrannical government. In the final analysis, the Founders in their wisdom guaranteed the people the right to keep and bear arms, and the “Heller” decision confirmed that as an individual right, not a “collective” right limited to a theoretical “organized militia”. I hope that clarifies things for those ignorant of history.

        1. 2nd A does not grant any right. We do have the right to pass and enforce laws to control what weapons can be owned by citizens. After the 2020 elections semi-auto guns will, in all likelihood, be banned. You’ll have the opportunity to sell your semi-autos to the government. If you are a law abiding gun owner you’ll comply.

          1. Comply…
            The language of the left.
            The law of the land is the Constitution and our Bill of RIGHTS. The founders made the 2A clear enough so anyone could understand it.

      6. Connie, please provide a proper citation to the clause in the Second Amendment, or any court decision, that references an exclusion for “assault weapons.” Betcha can’t! We’re waiting.

      7. Connie, perhaps you should take a little bit of time and educate yourself by watching the Freedom of Information Act hearings held with employees, administrators, and school board officials of Sandy Hook elementary school if they are still available on Youtube. They are available by searching the F.O.I.A.’s requestor, Wolfgang Halbig, a former Florida State Trooper, who searched for the truth about what happened on 12-14-12 and the sworn testimony in the hearings speaks for itself…

      8. Connie they are covered based in a Supreme Court decision: Caetano v. Massachusetts, 577 U.S. ___ (2016) – The Court ruled that the Second Amendment extends to all forms of bearable arms:
        The Court has held that the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding, and that this Second Amendment right is fully applicable to the States.[4]

      9. These gun nuts are a good example of why we need tighter gun control laws. They seem to think they are going to engage in an armed conflict with our government. Any such conflict would be over quickly.

        1. Armed conflict with our government?
          The “government” OF, BY, and FOR “the people”.
          The last time “the people” had enough of a tyrannical government was The Revolutionary War.
          If you don’t like guns, you can be the drummer…

      10. For CORRECT (and friendly) information, see my reply to Paul Dowd above. Factual information is the most useful kind.

        Too many problems and inconsistencies with Sandy Hook. Something doesn’t look or smell right if you look a little deeper.

      11. Nobody died at Sandy Hook:

        When you manually change the year to the correct year,(2013 to 2012, 3 times each address) you will get:

        “Page not found The page you are trying to visit is not available”

        These are data bases that cannot be tampered with/changed.
        If they cannot be changed, then they must be hidden. They don’t fit the agenda.
        Remember, all of the heads in the FBI/CIA were fired, and are under investigation for corruption by AG Barr.

        Heads are going to roll, and the truth will be revealed.

    17. Ok, I guess that the door is wide open for me. Do you commie mommies really want to hear about leftists Selling out your 2A gun owner’s Rights? Many, if not most of you on here are in Love with and have already drank much Koolaid from this one. You are all on here proclaiming to hate Liberal Politicians that want to take your guns, yet you BLINDLY throw your hard earned $$$ at this ELITE bunch of ‘BROTHERS at ARM’S’.

      So, I won’t keep you waiting from your Benedict Arnold any longer, you know the very organization as, none other than…

      You guessed it, the NRA! And specifically, Chris Cox with his RED FLAG GUN CONTROL SEIZURES. Here is your evidence for those that missed it… enjoy. JoinAMERICAN FIREARMS

    18. Based on Nadlers words today Re danger of Meuller report resides outside four corners of the report, AND, Nadler was requiring Barr to submit to a Constitutionally illegal forum thereby setting up Barr for Treason, We the people have the right to demand immediate detainment of ALL members in todays’ House Judiciary committee to be placed under arrest and tried for Treason solely for attempting to set up the AG to commit treason. At the same time we demand immediate expunging of the 1934 NFA. A requirement of every FCC licensed entity to provide 20% of EVERY broadcast hour to public service, non profit, or Civic entity programming, at the sole cost of the license holder entity. Immediately pass an amendment declaring ALL and EVERY law which, in it’s four corners, contains actionable items which actions are contrary or contradictory to the Constitution and Bill of Rights, illegal, null and void of jurisdiction, and ineligible for re introduction within the boundaries of the United States. That should make a good start toward reestablishing the power of the people.

      1. Bob, while I agree with your post I wonder how are you going to do this? How are YOU going to demand and carry out arrests, detainment, trial (the treasonous actions of all politicians from both parties IS self-evident, impeachment and the remedy demanded in our Constitution?
        I sincerely ask because after watching the ever increasing destruction of our country and the blatantly obvious ignoring of the Constitution by those who swore an oath to protect the Constitution, I am at a loss as to how we bring these criminal, traitors to justice. Aside from an all out war (they will probably leave the country with their armed guard forces) I do not know how to do this.
        With the level of corruption within the judicial system the only solution I see is a military coup against these traitors.

        1. You Sir, hit the nail on the proverbial proverbial head. That is why the 2A was put into place by the founding fathers. When the government becomes tyrannical, the Power must then be turned back to ‘We the People’!

        2. Bob, bring all your guns, unloaded, to the local police department and surrender them. Then proceed to the local hospital and check yourself into the psychiatric ward. They’ll know what to do.

    19. They will try to get the UN Peacekeepers on the ground in USA and it will be lots of fun. Stay sharp guys we’re gonna have us some fun.

      1. Nope, that’s why Trump restarted the 1033 program. It’s your federal state and local law enforcement that always have and always will continue to violate each and every one of your rights. This foreign enemy/ u.n. thing is just a distraction.

      1. At the time of the Second Amendment’s ratification, state laws throughout the country made almost every able man required to serve in the organized militia of their state. This was a privately armed, part time, conscripted force commanded by state officers. It was meant to make a then feared and hated large standing army unnecessary.

        1. You fat lazy fucs aint that. Scared puzzys. Militias were made state run so slavers could put down rebellions for freedom.
          Patrick Henry very behind it.
          Try reading non propaganda.

          1. So says one of the anti-second amendment activists. That light is ridiculously absurd on its face. The Minutemen in Lexington and Concord were hardly slavers, but they were part of a militia. No one here is going to believe you except of course the trolls. Obviously, you are one of those trolls. A civil war is coming and I promise you you will not survive it.

          2. Clear case of a broken Liberal, non-educating, educational system that we turned out in AMERICA.
            Don’t act as if every WHITE FAMILY had slaves to be concerned about. Slave numbers were very low at the time of the 2A. It wasn’t until the 2008, someone correct me if the date is off, that an individual had the right to carry on his person in public. No slaves, WTF???
            A Mind is a terrible thing to waste. Read some books, listen to some people who have some knowledge.
            Gun Control in the Third Riech is a good book if you want to learn what happens when governments take people’s firearms. VENEZUELA is a far more recent example of disarming citizenry of Firearms. Get educated, not indoctrinated!

      2. I see you failed 6th grade English. Let me help you, A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State. . .This is what is known as a “supportive” clause. . . The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. . .This is what is known as the “substantive” clause. Get it now?

      3. Put in the most simple way to say it, “well regulated” means able to shoot well; skilled. The source for the words come from the sights being “regulated” (filed on/adjusted) at time of manufacture of the weapon so that the sight picture agrees with the strike of the bullet at a given range, such as 100 yards. A militia that can’t shoot well would not be of much use, now, would it?

        1. BTW, our Founder DESPISED a standing government army, so WHY would the words of the 2nd Amendment describe a military that would be under their control?? It did and does no such thing.

    20. The only time guns in private hands have been used against an overreaching federal government was in support of, not in opposition to tyranny. Freedom comes from a culture that respects law. Guns in private hands means lots of guns out there. Some maybe used in defense of liberty, some in support of private militias, and others for crime.

      1. Yep, those opposed to tyranny had been disarmed already. Like Venezuela. Disarmed totally about 3 years ago. There was a reason the dictator did that don’t you know.

    21. Just out of curiosity…..if the 2nd amendment shall not be infringed and EVERYONE has the right to protect themselves and their property, where do we stand on restoration of felons gun rights

        1. Basic supply and demand. If you make the weapon illegal to sell the supply for illegal arms goes down as they source their supply from the legal market. It suddenly becomes highly expensive due to the demand being much higher than the supply.

          For example the price of a handgun in Australia since it was made illegal to own has risen to AU$15,000 (USD$10,000). What petty criminal has that kind of cash hanging about. Then all you have to worry about is organised crime and they aren’t that into breaking into homes to steal a TV.

          You also can’t use the point that the black market will get their weapons from international markets as most of the international illegal arms suppliers get their weapons from the US market. So in the US removing certain weapons from their market you are not only limiting the US black market supply but the Rest of the world’s supply also.

          1. One thing we better get is that felons, being criminals, will start to get desperate. Home invasions and break in’s will rise, as they seek to steal weapons. It may seem numerically insignificant, but not to the victims whose firearms are then used in the commission of crimes.

      1. My thought about felons is this: if they served their sentence and parole and commit no further crimes, I don’t have a problem with them being armed. The criminal is usually armed anyway, and a non-criminal is just that, a non-criminal.

        I don’t see the logic as to why a libtard hoplophobe would be opposed to the restoration of a felon’s Second Amendment Rights, they want to restore their voting rights….what’s the difference?

          1. @J , I saw that movie. The rigid society with only one punishment. It didn’t work out well for the people or the oppressors like yourself.

      2. Check that.
        USSC currently is judging those cases on an individual basis which is good news because it shows there is progress. Non violent felons are scrutinized less and there is a case brought to clarify this issue since that recent case ruled everybody has the right to self defense so people are waiting for the clarification right now. My take on this is criminals don’t obey so why should anybody else obey fake gun control. MS13 is a prime example. Gun control is for suckers. Gun control = genocide. Flux the fed, they have zero authority to say who has the right to life and who must die by gun control. Just because they wrote words on paper they mean nothing unless in compliance to the constitution.

      3. State level predessors to the Second Amendment included exceptions for criminals and included age ranges. It’s clear the exclusion of such from the 2A is deliberate. They shouldn’t be out if they’re still a threat.

      4. Just putting an idea out there as a thought experiment…
        How about we give felons who have completed their sentences a reasonable opportunity to earn back their rights? I say rights in the plural because maybe we should tie voting to legal firearm ownership. For example, I’d have no problem filling out a 4473 to register to vote. If we trust you to vote, we trust you with an AR-15, or vice versa.

        If they value their rights, they’ll take the opportunity. If they neither cherish their rights nor indicate they will accept the responsibilities that accompany them, let’s not cajole them into anything.

        What should the opportunity look like? I don’t know. Maybe a couple hundred hours of voluntary community service? Maybe some number of years of keeping one’s nose clean. Those are things a lot of us non-felons have done anyway. Maybe somebody has a better idea…

      5. I am sure Comrade Sanders would totally restore all rights while giving convicted terrorists the right to vote. My idea is do what Kentucky just did. Give certain class of non-violent offenders who have paid their debt to society and are living the right life all rights back.

        1. Convicted felons in Arkansas can reinstate their forfieted rights through the pardons and parole board. If approved by them it is sent to the govoner for his approval or rejection.
          Civics 101 taught in my hogh school said you losy All Rights ad a citizen when convicted of a felony!
          Has that cjanged?

      6. There are too many people classified as felons because they didn’t dot an “i” or cross a “t” on a government or state form (IRS), failed to comply with some bullshit rule called a “law” that shouldn’t be on the books at all, or inadvertently crossed an imaginary line established by some liberal crooked politician and did something that harmed no one (prostitute sting operations). Violent criminals shouldn’t even be alive (death penalty), but walk the streets daily. If a felon convicted of a blue-collar crime serves his entire sentence, not paroled or time off for good behavior, then he or she should have their rights automatically restored.

    22. I can see a civil war soon if people keep trying to take away our rights. I have no problems taking out the communist piece of shi/// . All free citizens must keep this treasonous government in check

      1. There’s absolutely nothing to keep in check. It has to be completely overthrown. This government has usurped powers belonging to the people more than 125 years ago. The purpose will be to restore the constitutional republic of limited government, not to replace it. The only thing we will replace is the Tyranny we live under now. And you are correct, a civil war is most definitely coming.

        1. Yes, but how do we “capture” (arrest, detain etc) the corrupt politicians at the top who are promoting the continued destruction of this country? And what about the George $0r0$’s of the world and in this country who have all the money to pay (corrupt) the next “politician” who takes the place of the one we just hung?
          What about all the liberal/democRAT/progressives who don’t agree with us? Do we jail them too? If they cannot see what is happening NOW, how do we convince them we are correct? Do they end up in FEMA camps?

          1. George Soria, if you actually knew anything, you would know the “Wild West” wasn’t wild, and rates of crime and shootings were much higher in the “civilized” Eastern cities, much as it is today.

          2. 1st Amendment deep state dude. 1st Amendment you hater of USA.
            Go do your homework and get off our board. Read some constitution or something.

          3. The “Wild West” was not all that wild. A lot of exaggeration for exciting the buyers of the “Dime Novels.” Even the worst places, like Abilene, Kansas reported much lower numbers of murders and violent crime than most people these days imagine. Virtually everybody, including women, especially the “working” type carried weapons, often concealed.

    23. The sole purpose of the 2nd Amendment was to scare the crap out of government and keep them on the shortest chain possible. An armed people is a free people.
      The government has little to do with gun control of the actual people. They can only regulate their subjects and employees. Neither group is us.
      Citizens are subjects
      You are not a citizen
      You are a man or woman who employs the government
      Get it straight.

      1. That’s not at all accurate. In the 1790s, the standing militia itself was a government force, manned by universal conscription. Washington actually used 15,000 Militia from three states to PUT DOWN to Whiskey Rebellion.

        1. You went to government school Walter Bailey.
          The purpose of the 2nd amendment and small local militias trained by professionals was to have a larger force available to protect the rights of the people and a mechanism to …” throw off such government…” than the foriegn contracted Municipal and Territorial government corporations, our employees.
          I study , research and teach this. There is no arguement. You have been miscatagorized as a subject, chattel, a dead thing and a infant decedant. Go research it or go ask an attorney.

        2. “In the 1790s, the standing militia itself was a government force, manned by universal conscription.”

          Standing militia? Standing army, you mean. That is why the Founders wrote the Second Amendment , so the states would always be able to raise militias to oppose a standing army. An armed populace is a deterrent to federal aggression. Federalist 46 explains it.

          Washington federalized militia from other states to use in the Whiskey Rebellion, they became federal troops. Fortunately they didn’t clash with the protestors.

          1. You are correct my Friend! I am a retired Soldier. My commissioning oath was to uphold and defend the constitution. I have done so and will do so in my homeland if necessary!!! The “whiskey rebellion” was about revenue, pre-IRS now they just raise taxes.

    24. ALL ‘gun control laws’ are un-Constitutional, regardless what some anti-American democrat ‘judge’ may say.
      The Constitution is the rules by which America exists. NO LAW may stand in contravention to the Constitution.
      NO law of congress, or any state, may stand if it is not in 100% harmony with the Constitution. No law may change, limit or negate the Constitution. ONLY a Constitutional Amendment can do that.
      April 19, 1775, the government forces came to take guns and ammo from the Americans in Concord, MA. The Americans shot the government agents. Why do you think the Second Amendment says “shall not be infringed”?
      Uneducated Americans believe ‘gun control laws’ are real. So, through ignorance, they bow to governmental tyranny.
      Because Americans have bowed to un-Constitutional ‘gun control laws’, the government got the idea they were the master. The 1934 NFA was passed because politicians, after screwing over WW1 veterans, feared the veterans would come to Capitol Hill and clean house.
      Grow some balls and STOP acting like slaves. Americans are the ultimate power in America. Government exists because the American People allow it. Nowhere does the Constitution say government may have armed police forces or guns, but it does say the American people can have guns and you can’t do anything about it. In Wyoming, they passed a law that if any armed federal agent enters the state, the agent is considered an armed criminal, unless he registers and is escorted by the Sheriff. Federal agents have NO power outside Washington, D.C.. FREEDOM!
      If you want a 30 round magazine, get some. Pistol grip, get one. Stand your ground for freedom, stop kneeling.
      FREEDOM at any cost. Or, you can continue to not vote conservative, continue to tap on the phone you are addicted to and watch basketball while the anti-American communist democrats flood America with illegal alien invaders and make America socialist. At THAT time, only blood will bring the Constitution back.
      Your choice.

      1. Yes correct, they bow, beg and gulp down that Koolaid, Demand protection and larger government whining about their rights instead of seizing them and needing free abortions. Entitled whiners can rot in hell bleating like sheep while walking into the fire out of their own ignorance for all I care. I ask for nothing and will surrender the same, nothing. Climate cult Nazi Muslim depopulators just shut down all Colorado’s energy for U.N. Agenda 21 and still sheep beaters are sitting on their ass whining while sending lil Johnny off to school to learn to be gay like the governor who loves Muslims. Low IQ sheeple here think rights are granted by gov that gov is God. Gay boy polis is wiping out the state and they just sit there with a stupid look on their faces. I only know 1 man in this state who will rise up and he’s typing this. The rest are growing big hijab beards smoking weed and acting cool and headed to the vape shop to get that oil that stinks like waffles to smoke. It’s pathetic. They are too busy lapping up the fast food and plucking at their phone to know anything beyond what their phone tells them. Wanna piss em off, cut the phone service off that will do it. They’re on their way to the FEMA Camp and as long as they don’t have to walk there they won’t be bothered.

        1. What happened to the first amendment??? Stop bashing free peoples religion!!
          You make a lot of good gun owners look bad with some of that rant, think about it.

          1. Muslims openly threaten Americans lives and you support them. Are you one?
            1st Amendment protects my speech that you find offensive because that’s what 1A is for.
            It is my right to speak out against those who threaten me and my country.

            1. Is that Star Wars stuff the pedo network? I see those figurines in those musicians studios in California on you tube. Are you one of those?

      2. Above all else, the constitution gives power to the people and if the people choose to change something then they can. Right now we have the ability to vote on specific issues, not just choosing officials. That would be the ultimate democracy but most conservatives wouldn’t want that. If the citizens of a city want to ban guns all together then they should be able to but they can’t based on federal law. The government is still made up of American citizens, not some foreign entity here to destroy us. I’m not against guns just the people that don’t take care of them or use them for evil.

        1. WRONG! INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS have NOTHING to do with democracy. Rights CAN NOT be voted away by a majority of citizens. Take a Civics 101 class.

        2. We do NOT live in a democracy. We live in a Constitutional Republic. Our country is governed by the Constitution. In order to change anything, there is a procedure defined by the Constitution to make such change. It requires each state to ratify the change, which is called an Amendment. Three quarters of the states must ratify the Amendment in order for it to be added to the Constitution. So, the Constitution cannot be changed by a simple vote in your City’s next election. Go find a Civics book and start learning about our government before you stuff your mouth full of your foot again.

    25. “I know it’s political. I know it’s controversial. I say to you, forget the extremists! It’s simple — no one hunts with an assault rifle. No one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer, and too many innocent people have died already! End this madness — now!” ~ Quotation from New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s State of the State speech”

      I know this is news to the self-esteemed Leftard, however the 2nd. isn’t about hunting deer is about tyrant control.

      1. The main problem is that only about ten percent of eligible voters actually vote so we are just giving up our rights a little bit at a time while the libtards brainwash each new generation!

      2. I have seen that before, that is exceedingly funny, one issue is that the Leftists that have been infiltrating this site recently will probably believe it as fact as not as satirical.
