How the Right Could Lose Its Way on Guns

As a matter of personal preference, I would certainly encourage private companies to allow their employees to bring their firearms to work, and, as a matter of taste, I would prefer it if those who have been discovered violating company policy were treated gently — especially if they were forced to break the rules in self-defense. But, unless one is to wholly rewrite the nature of American constitutional government, these decisions must be reserved to the private sector, and not to local voters or representatives. Like all of the provisions within the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment serves as a check on government and on government alone. It does not apply to Walmart or to FedEx or to Joe’s Highway Diner. When the NRA gripes that some politicians are “heeding corporate concerns” over the predilections of gun owners, what it is really saying is that those politicians are respecting property rights and refusing to get involved where they are not welcome. At what point, one wonders, did that become undesirable to liberty-loving people?

On the campaign trail and in private, conservatives invariably profess enthusiasm for at-will employment, for limited regulation, for free contracts between employers and employees, for the right of businesses to decide with whom they wish to associate, and for legal regimes that privilege local knowledge over centralized edict. Ostensibly at least, conservatives do not wish the state to instruct private firms what their opening hours must be, how much they are required to pay their staff, and what sort of health insurance they are bound to provide. Such opposition is rooted in the Right’s belief about the practical effects of these policies, certainly. But it is also grounded in its view of the role of state, which is to be limited to securing liberty and to creating a framework within which markets can flourish. Are we to conclude now that these ideals do not apply when it comes to the question of guns? And if not, what can explain red-state support for preemption?

FK – Here’s the comment I posted to this article:

Google is proving right now that the corporations are just as dangerous as the government.

The most basic and valuable ‘private property’ is our own bodies, lives. No one anywhere has any ‘right’ to tell us we can’t defend such, for any reason. Profit motive be damned.

The greedy corporate workaholic jerks treat their employees like beasts of burden because they know they can get away with it. American corporations didn’t move their facilities after Klinton and a Democratic congress passed NAFTA because they felt sorry for the peasants of Mexico, Central America and Asia.

Don’t understand? Start here.

I could go on and on about this.

Did commiefornia do something right for once?

California Governor Vetoes ‘Ghost Gun’ Bill

Get one if you can afford it:

FK – This is called “Liberal”(commie) trash, the greatest danger and plague we face today. Only a program of complete and total eradication will cure this disease.

FK – We need serial numbers for “Liberal”(commie) trash and commie newswhores, tattooed on each cheek along with a hammer and sickle.

The makers of this machine should be honored nationally. We must repeal GCA ’68 and the NFA and all the other ‘gun laws.’

The ‘crime’ issue is a red herring. Even if ‘gun control’ could be proven to lower crime it would still be evil.

All ‘gun control’ is propaganda designed to condition the sheeple to more ‘control’ until full civilian disarmament is achieved. Thus all gun control is an act of war. All who forward it should be arrested, tried for treason against Human Liberty and executed.

When guns are outlawed “Liberal”(commie) trash season begins. The Newswhores die first.

Lawmakers Say Mexico Close to Releasing Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi from Prison

Members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee said Wednesday that they believe Mexico will soon release Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the U.S. Marine who has been held prisoner in Mexico after he crossed into that country carrying weapons in violation of Mexican law.

Chairman Ed Royce (R-Calif.) said he met with Tahmooressi in prison back in June, and has continued to press Mexican authorities for his release. Royce said he made a breakthrough in a talk last week with Mexican authorities about Tahmooressi, who has been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

FK – The trash would like to have the same ‘laws’ here so they don’t like the idea getting out that this man was treated badly just because he decided to be armed and be able to exercise his most basic right.

California outlaws what they call a hate flag, was it the ISIS flag?

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed legislation prohibiting California state government agencies from selling or display items displaying the Confederate flag.

Brown’s office on Thursday announced signing AB2444. It was introduced by Democratic Assemblyman Isadore Hall of Compton after his mother saw replica Confederate cash sold at the Capitol gift shop.

Hall, who is black, says the state should not promote a symbol of racism that is meant to intimidate. The gift shop no longer carries the item.

FK – Commiefornia is gone. It will have to re-invaded and re-conquered.

Chicago’s Gun Laws Prevent Poor From Defending Themselves

The West Garfield Park neighborhood in the South Side of Chicago is one of the deadliest places in the country, according to the Washington Times.

Following receipt of information requested under the Freedom Of Information Act, the Times discovered that ZIP Code 60624 (which includes West Garfield Park) has, in the last month, “recorded more homicides, robberies, assaults, thefts and narcotics charges combined than any other ZIP Code in Cook County.” In contrast, ZIP Code 60464 has experienced only one homicide in the last 10 years. The difference in demographics explains part of the reason why: West Garfield Park is nearly 96 percent black, whereas Palos Park is overwhelmingly white. Residents in West Garfield Park have an average income just barely above the poverty level, while residents in Palos Park live well, enjoying an average monthly income of more than $10,000.

But perhaps the biggest demographic difference is the number of concealed carry permits in these two neighborhoods. Out of nearly 115,000 total residents in West Garfield Park, fewer than 200 have been issued concealed carry licenses, whereas in Palos Park more than 60 licenses had been issued to fewer than 5,000 residents there. Put another way, there are seven times more permits per capita in Palos Park than there are in West Garfield Park.

FK – The upper classes are also more educated, and many of them fear the lower classes learning what their ‘rights’ are. Once enough of them learn things may change, but not unless they also learn they bear personal responsibility for making things change. When I see working poor people put up with being treated like jackasses by their employees here in rural Kentucky I don’t have much hope for ‘change.’

Those who created the welfare state knew full well the ‘outcomes’ they were hoping for. Inner city blacks and many rural whites are existing in those outcomes now.

Let’s be safe, but not deal in fear-mongering. We have enough real problems to deal with, like our blood domestic enemies, the greatest plague mankind knows at this time, yes even more dangerous than the ragheads hiding in caves on the other side of the world.

Most gun rights activists, groups remain silent on amnesty threat to gun rights

“Hispanics promised Obama will act on immigration by year’s end,” The Washington Times reported Wednesday.

“The question of executive action, my friends, is a ‘when’ question,” Labor Secretary Thomas E. Perez promised attendees at the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute convention.

“He said Mr. Obama shares their values, despite having repeatedly put off thorny decisions on immigration,” The Times report continued.

That’s evident from the “Look Who’s Coming to CHCI’s 37th Annual Awards Gala” announcement.

“President Barack Obama will address the largest Latino gathering in the country at CHCI’s 37th Annual Awards Gala on Thursday, October 2, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center,” the ethnocentric politics group advertised. “This will be the fifth year that President Obama has addressed the CHCI Awards Gala, going back to when he was a presidential candidate in 2008.

So why is Gun Owners of America still the only gun group speaking out on the danger to gun owners?

FK – Because GOA is one of the few ‘pro gun’ groups really worth bothering with. This is a total multi-front war. So many refuse to acknowledge or act on this fact because it would personally cost them too much which proves this remains a nation of cowardly whores. Until that changes and we begin a process of the eradication of our domestic blood enemies nothing will get better.

Hey Republicans, Read This — A Millennial Wrote It

5.) Have you considered the consequences of what you’re doing?

No, we haven’t. Our generation is actually predisposed to willy-nilly decision-making. (In case you didn’t pick it up, that’s sarcasm in text.)

We were raised on stories of heroism about our Founding Fathers. They rebelled against the spiteful British, knowing well enough that their demise was just around the corner. The consequence of death wasn’t a thought–creating a haven of liberty for their posterity was. That being said, we ask you this–have YOU considered the consequences of us NOT acting? Are we to sit by passively as our country becomes more divided, our money is spent, and our country heads towards the same fate as the Roman Empire?

Instead of assuming we haven’t thought about what will happen when we act, why don’t you consider that we may be like our Founding Fathers. The consequences YOU fear–the very fear that moved YOU to inaction–those don’t scare us. We’re more scared about our future if we don’t act. So yes, condescending person–we have considered our actions. And we’re proud of what we’re doing.

6.) You don’t have enough experience.

Experience in what? Running up debt in numbers that basically no one can fathom? Experience in saying yes to men who have been there for too long and no to people who are willing to work for principle? Experience in stripping liberties from all political sides? Experience in navigating a political scene and having little to no “street smarts?” If that’s the experience you want, keep it.

Experience in the way Republicans use it screams “old dude.” We’re not interested in following the ways of McCain in order to appease an archaic hierarchy of political movement. There’s no time for that. Perhaps the mindset needs to be “we have the experience, so let’s mentor the ones with the drive, the creativity, the stamina, and the will to serve” in lieu of pandering to a system that appears to care nothing about the people who truly drive this country.

FK – When I was ‘young,’ for some a relative term, I figured out that a lot of ‘older’ folk had clearly forgotten what it was like to be young. I was born the year Marilyn Monroe died and I still think this. Some of this is hormonal, some of it is just plain-old fashioned intellectual laziness.

Lots of ‘older’ folk can’t be dissuaded from the idea that just because they ‘did it that way’ for 40 years that ‘that way’ might not be such a hot idea, if for no other reason than ‘the times have changed,’ as they always do. Politics is human nature and vice versa, and cultural. Cultures evolve with time, if they didn’t we’d still be eating raw livers from fresh kills and sacrificing babies.

But for you ‘young’ folk: The generation or two immediately preceding you doesn’t carry all the blame, well they do, but this has been going on for multiple generations. A war was fought in the 1860s over some of these same issues and the bad guys won. But lots of ‘older’ folk can’t come to grips with this because it goes against their indoctrination just as so many of them can’t stop sitting on their asses waiting for the world to end.

This really has less to do with age and more to do with how much responsibility for the world around them any individual chooses to take on. Old political activists of whatever stripe can be as guilty of ‘going with the flow and doing what’s always been done’ as any apolitical sheeple.

I’ve struggled for nearly 20 years with the apathy I see around me on a daily basis and still struggle with the mindless allegiance to ancient propaganda, and those who still resort to using key terms and phrases made popular by the American Communist Insurgency and Marxist front groups whose job it is to divert us from realizing who our real enemies are.

The last few years I’ve been simultaneously quite happy and proud of a lot of young liberty activists and very disheartened by their own inability to overcome the indoctrination they’ve received from the government schools and universities and mainstream news media.

Someone wrote a long time ago that there’s ‘nothing new under the sun.’ If you really want to get into that watch the new version of Battlestar Gallactica. Yes, I’m serious.

Most importantly of all, you ‘young’ folk must understand something I still struggle with: you who give a damn will always be in the minority, even if you win and someday some kid will look at you and say “We ain’t gonna do it that way anymore.” Then you can smile and nod.
