Mass Shooting Follows Obama’s Latest Anti-Second Amendment

Comments Off on Mass Shooting Follows Obama’s Latest Anti-Second Amendment

I would not put it past some of these people to stage some of these shootings in order to get their gun legislation passed. This may sound crazy, but it may not be as far fetched as it may sound.

Obama pitched his latest effort to disarm the American people hours before a deadly shooting at the Washington Navy Yard.

Obama: 90 percent of Americans support restrictions on Second Amendment. ( I guarantee you 90% is an extremely stretched figure)

Appearing on “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” Obama insisted 90 percent of Americans support gun control but that a “faction of the Republican Party” prevented Democrats from passing anti-Second Amendment legislation.

“The problem we have is we have a faction of the Republican Party, in the House of Representatives in particular, that view compromise as a dirty word, and anything that is either remotely associated with me, they feel obliged to oppose,” said Obama. “And my argument to them is real simple. That’s not why the people sent to here.”

Following a defeat to pass draconian anti-firearms legislation back in April, Obama and Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pledged to continue the effort to diminish gun rights in the United States.

The Navy Yard attack arrives less than a week after two Democrat gun control advocates were recalled in Colorado. Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron were replaced with Republicans who are staunch supporters of the Second Amendment. Both Democrats were supported financially buy notorious New York gun grabber Michael Bloomberg and his Mayor’s Against Illegal Guns.

The recall effort highlighted the fight between supports of gun rights and those who would roll back the Second Amendment following the massacre in Newtown, Connecticut and a shooting in Aurora, Colorado.

Contrary to What We Were Told: Americans Want More Guns!

Comments Off on Contrary to What We Were Told: Americans Want More Guns!


Contrary to what the angry and petulant Obama claimed after his gun-control measures were shot down in the Senate, most Americans believe having a gun in the home makes the home a safer place.

President Obama and Veep Biden have been asserting that 90% of US citizens want stricter gun control laws, however, an ABC Poll proves quite the opposite to be true. Since 2000, the public opinion has dramatically reversed itself. And if gun owners are questioned, the positive response is 75%.

Based on these latest findings, it’s evident more Americans want more guns in homes for protection.  And perhaps a sign out front declaring the house a gun-filled rather than gun-free zone?

Sounds like an idea the founders would heartily approve!

Reid pulls gun bill- Gets Ready for Lengthy Fight over Background Checks

Comments Off on Reid pulls gun bill- Gets Ready for Lengthy Fight over Background Checks

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid effectively pulled his party’s gun control bill Thursday after a critical background check amendment failed to garner enough support, as he and other Democrats vowed to resume their push for new gun laws in the months ahead.

“Make no mistake, this debate is not over,” Reid said. He acknowledged that he and President Obama had agreed to hit “pause” on the current package, but said the Senate would “come back to this bill” and take up expanded background checks.

At the same time, critics of the legislation vowed to ensure any future proposals protect both “the lives and liberty” of Americans.

Both sides of the debate, it seemed, were gearing up for a protracted legislative battle that could last through the next congressional election. Democrats appeared to acknowledge that the amendment’s failure Wednesday meant they would not be able to pass any gun bill in the short-term, despite initial claims that the mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., might spur a hasty legislative response in Congress.

The amendment that was defeated Wednesday would have expanded background checks to gun shows and Internet sales, while exempting personal transactions. It failed on a 54-46 vote; it needed 60 to pass.

Opponents, which included Republicans and rural-state Democrats, said the measure would infringe on Second Amendment rights by imposing a burden on law-abiding gun owners while doing little to stop criminals. They also repeated the concern that the system could lead to a gun registry, though the amendment language prohibited this.

Sen. Mark Kirk: Booze and boat parties smoothed bipartisan gun deal

Comments Off on Sen. Mark Kirk: Booze and boat parties smoothed bipartisan gun deal

Nothing brings Democratic and Republican senators together like some time alone on a yacht, says Sen. Mark S. Kirk.

Speaking to reporters about his work on firearm background checks and other gun-related legislation, the Illinois Republican told a gaggle of reporters that credit for bipartisan efforts in the Senate are in part thanks to visits to the Black Tie, a vessel that is partially owned by Sen. Joe Manchin III, D-W.Va.

“You guys really ought to go out to National Harbor and see the Black Tie, which has been much of the reason for much of the bipartisan cooperation around here,” Kirk said.

Kirk said Sens. Kay Hagan, a North Carolina Democrat and Lisa Murkowski, an Alaska Republican, are frequent visitors. Asked about the menu at the gatherings, Kirk didn’t say much, though he indicated some booze might be consumed.

“Sometimes alcoholic beverages might be served and ties might … get loosened,” Kirk said.

Manchin and Kirk are best of friends in the Senate, in both their work and personal lives. Manchin flew to Chicago to visit Kirk in January 2012, not long after the junior Illinois senator suffered a stroke that kept him away from the chamber for a year.

As HOH has previously reported, Kirk has called the West Virginian “My Main Man Manch;” while Manchin’s called his pal an “Energizer Bunny.”




Five Gun Amendments To Watch

Comments Off on Five Gun Amendments To Watch

Reid has promised an open amendment process for gun control legislation, which the Senate is expected to start debating next week.
With the Senate voting comfortably Thursday to take up its most ambitious gun control legislation in nearly two decades, all eyes turn to the “open amendment process” that Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has promised.

Senators who advocate gun control will try to add much tougher provisions to curb firearms and ammunition. But pro-gun senators will attempt to gut the legislation (S 649) with amendments backed by the National Rifle Association.

“I’ve been around these things,” Sen. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., said Thursday. “The NRA will try to throw all kinds of amendments at us, and we’re going to have to work really hard to prevent them from being added to the bill.”

Here is an early list of five amendments to watch, including some that could turn what is now a sweeping gun control bill into one that significantly expands gun rights.

#1: Concealed Carry

Schumer issued an early warning Thursday on one particular amendment that he anticipates from his pro-gun counterparts: a plan to ensure that concealed carry handgun permits issued by one state are recognized by all others.

The proposal, known as “concealed carry reciprocity,” came within two votes of Senate passage as an amendment to defense authorization legislation in 2009. Schumer calls the proposal “pernicious.”

“If Wyoming has a concealed carry law, somebody could come from Wyoming to the big cities of New York or New Haven or Bridgeport and carry a concealed weapon, which is so against our way of life and the needs here in New York,” he said during an event with Connecticut’s two Democratic senators.

So far, no senator has pledged to offer the amendment in the current gun debate, but that is certain to change. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., on Thursday said he would “offer or support amendments to protect the Second Amendment rights of veterans and Americans who have concealed carry permits.”

Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., offered the amendment in 2009, when it attracted the support of all but two Republicans plus 20 Democrats, including Reid and 12 other Democrats who are still in the Senate.

#2: Mental-Health Records

A bipartisan and influential group of senators has signed on to a proposal that seeks to ensure that more records of those with mental-health problems are included in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is used to determine whether people may buy guns.

The plan is co-sponsored by Republican Sens. Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and conservative Democratic Sens. Mark Begich of Alaska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas.

Democrat Admits Obama Agenda Is Total Gun Ban

Comments Off on Democrat Admits Obama Agenda Is Total Gun Ban

You CAN NOT ban the 2nd amendment with a law passed by the Senate, House and signed by the President. You MUST admend the Constitution with 2/3 Senate approval and 3/4 of the States ratify it as well. This is the ONLY legal way to do it. Guns must first be registered before confiscation can occur.  Background checks = registration

Democratic Austin City Council member and potential next mayor Mike Martinez admitted during a speech that the Obama administration’s long term gun control agenda is focused on banning firearms altogether.

Pointing out a sign held by a protester which read, “stop gun ban!,” Martinez remarked, “someone needs to inform him that there is no gun ban currently, but because of the work we’re doing here today, we will make your sign legitimate shortly, so you hang on to that.” The crowd cheered as Martinez made his vow.

Organizer Hilary Rand with Moms Demand Action claimed that Second Amendment advocates were “perpetrating things that are just not true,” adding, “Nobody wants to ban guns here we’re just trying talking about coming up with sensible solutions that can help make us safer, we’re talking about strengthening the laws that we currently have and creating new laws that will help us enforce those laws we currently have, nobody wants to change the constitution.”

However, Martinez’ assertion that a total gun ban would be made “legitimate” confounds this rhetoric and underscores the fact that tighter gun control restrictions and gun registrations are merely stepping stones to a British-style all out ban on firearms.

These rare glimpses into the true guiding force behind the gun control agenda occasionally rear their head during public speeches.

If you infringe upon the Second Amendment protections, you will be removed from office

Comments Off on If you infringe upon the Second Amendment protections, you will be removed from office

Congressman Steve Stockman Wednesday reinforced his intentions to use a “blue slip” to kill any Senate anti-gun bill that contains expanded background checks.

Stockman will also deliver U-Haul gift cards to the offices of Mark Begich, Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan and Max Baucus should they vote for the package, to help with move-out expenses after they are defeated by voters in 2014.

“A requirement to make citizens submit to a background check imposes a taxSuch legislation cannot originate in the Senate.  The bill is automatically unconstitutional,” said Stockman.

“Constitutional rights don’t require permission slips.  If you infringe upon the Second Amendment’s absolute protections, you will be removed from office,” said Stockman.  “The language of the Second Amendment is perhaps the starkest and most absolute in the Constitution.  ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’  That means any obstacle whatsoever is strictly prohibited.  The right to keep and bear arms cannot even be approached.”

“Criminals nationwide are applauding Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey,” said Stockman. “Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey want to give the federal government the name and address of everyone who buys a gun.  They want to turn our entire country into Chicago.”

“Of the 1.5 million background checks conducted in 2010, only 13 criminals were caught and jailed but hundreds of thousands of law-abiding citizens were denied self-protection because of administrative errors and false matches,” said Stockman. “Background checks lead to confiscation from law-abiding citizens and more crime from criminals. ”

The Manchin-Toomey anti-gun compromise reportedly would mandate background for gun sales at gun shows and over the Internet, despite the well-documented fact criminals don’t look to gun shows or Internet sales for guns.

A “blue slip” is a resolution that automatically returns to the Senate any bill that violates the “origination clause” of the United States Constitution.  The origination clause states “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”

Blue slip resolutions are immediately considered as a matter of constitutional privilege, are debatable for an hour and are not subject to amendment.

According to The Heritage Foundation, background check mandates imposes a new tax by forcing individuals to pay for background checks when selling or giving away a firearm.  The mandate to use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System does not provide a service to the buyer or seller but to the government, making it a tax.

Additionally, the Supreme Court ruled last year in NFIB v. Sebelius that mandating citizens to pay for a service can be construed to be a tax, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing the majority opinion expanding the federal definition of a tax.
