Moreover, the Reciprocity Act is also supported by the same jurisdictional predicate as many other federal gun control laws: namely, that the firearm in question was once sold or transported in interstate commerce. This is not really consistent with the original meaning of the Interstate Commerce Clause. But if the Reciprocity Act were held to exceed Congress’s commerce powers, then much of the federal Gun Control Act would also be unconstitutional—such as laws that ban a person today from possessing a gun just because the gun was sold in interstate commerce four decades ago.
In short, whether you prefer that the Constitution be interpreted based on modern precedents, or based on original meaning, Congress has the discretion to pass the Reciprocity Act.
FK – So sad that our natural born rights have been buried under centuries of legalese while we lack the men to do what we so desperately need to do.
FK – No. We must REPEAL the gun laws, all of them. The words ‘illegal gun’ aren’t found in the Second Amendment. Stop sounding like the cowards in the ‘No Rights that aren’t Allowed’ group.
320 million plus tool-using monkeys live in this country, with a high percentage of assholes who fully deserve to be shot. So the miracle is there aren’t many more shootings, mass or not.
The problem is the general population is a bunch of pacified morons who still think the police are there to protect them and elites who run the govt. do so for the benefit of the common sheeple.
They consider us all to be livestock. There is nothing more important to understand than that. If they forbid guns for self defense in your workplace, church, whatever it’s for their safety not yours. It’s for their liability not the future of your family, liberty, property.
One thing that’s so despicable about this is that hey zeus allegedly told his disciples to buy and carry a sword in case they needed it. Yet modern morons think they’re supposed to be helpless because of some twisted version of pacifism that’s been interjected into the religions because it makes better sheeple.
Our Founders, many of whom were ‘christian’ of one version or another, had no problem killing their fellow British subjects in their quest for Liberty and independence. Millions died in the reformation over whose sadistic god gets to burn the vast majority of humans that ever existed alive in fire forever.
The ability of the sheeple to lie to themselves and prefer to be lied to still amazes me…
We have a cancer in this country. It’s way past time to do what will be required to excise it. Trump needs to bring the troops home and start at the top.
If only enough would see the real threat:
FK – He had to make a judgement call on whether the guy who got in his truck was telling the truth. But then we don’t know what he saw that he isn’t telling.
Too many today don’t think at all about what they might do in an urgent situation. Such decisions are never easy but it’s better than being a little pathetic pacified moron.
How the demonscat party can save itself Barry Bright June 23, 1017
As a pre-cursor – I actually voted for Bill Klinton out of ignorance when it first ran for prez in 1992 because it said it was against NAFTA. Then during its first year in office a demonscat congress voted NAFTA through and klinton signed it and bragged about it.
Bush the first was in favor of closing American factories and allowing American corporations to send their jobs to ‘developing’ countries where they could find desperate workers who were willing to do or say anything to get a job and to show up on time, do what they’re told and never ask inappropriate questions to keep it.
Otherwise klinton’s platform was repulsive to me but in my youthful college educated ignorance I didn’t yet understand how evil the twin evils of socialism and gun control are. We’ve had the net for 20 years now so there’s no excuse for supporting or tolerating either.
It’s pretty simple really, ‘democrats’ only have to do these things:
1. Stop working to disarm the common people and instead work to restore the Second Amendment by repealing ‘all,’ that’s the ‘all’ that’s in the dictionary, gun laws on the federal, state and local level.
2. Work to bring real good paying jobs back home. Require employers to treat their workers like human beings, not ‘human resources,’ or as I often say, jackasses.
3. Get over all this absurd propaganda about an obviously mentally ill or birth-defected tiny minority of the population. People who ‘feel,’ uh, ‘gay’ or ‘trans-gendered’ or whatever silliness they’ve come up with recently shouldn’t be mis-treated or abused but neither should we all be forced at the point of a govt. gun to lie about what they really are and pretend they’re all ‘happy, healthy and normal’ when they’re anything but.
4. Stop using minorities of whatever kind as propaganda tools by constantly harping on ‘race’ or inclusiveness or multiculturalism or whatever other bilge some Marxist wordsmith comes up with next.
5. Get the communists out of their party, out of our govt. schools, out of the universities, out of our news and entertainment media and stop trying to communize our health care, and every other institution in our society.
6. Stop working to import illegals, immigrants, whatever from cultures that have even a poorer understanding of Liberty than most amerikans do so they can get them to vote commie, uh, democratic.
7. Go into therapy to learn how to stifle their ultimate arrogance so that we won’t be forced to.
But then we must realize their arrogance will never allow them to do these things. We will be forced to force them to stop working covertly and overtly to enslave us all further, completely.
I write all this in the recognition that the republicrat party is as always determined to fail in the restoration of our republic, our Bill of Rights and our individual liberty. The amerikan communist insurgency infiltrated every institution it could over the last century and a half, including the republicrat party, the original party of big government.
So as history shows the demonscat party just has to wait one more time for ‘conservative’ voters to get sick of republicrat stonewalling and cowardice and for angry demonscat voters to get off their couches and golf carts or park benches and ‘get active’ for the next election cycle.
Are we ready?
What does ‘We the People’ actually mean?
It means we are responsible…
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
FK – For the sake of the simple minded I will state: Voting in elections other than the prez, or what I call the four year quest for the idiot vote, can be profitable to those who seek to restore Liberty to this land.
GOA is far superior to the ‘No Rights that aren’t Allowed’ group that has a very poor track record of scoring local and state legislative candidates.
Regardless WE ARE AT WAR and eventually blood, sweat and tears will be required for our white-skinned domestic blood enemies, the “Liberal” and ‘progressive(commie/globalist) trash will never throw up its hands and say “Oh sorry we bothered you. We’re going home now to live in peace and Liberty with our neighbors.” Even if they do tell that lie they will be simply going off to some dark corner to re-group and re-arrange their lies to better affect the simple-minded among us.
The municipalities are scrambling due to Act 192, signed into law last year by Gov. Tom Corbett (R). As outlined in the language of the law, member groups such as the NRA can stand in for local citizens in challenging ordinances in court that exceed the state’s own gun laws.
The gun rights group at the time called the bill “the strongest firearms preemption statute in the country” and a “much-needed protection for gun owners in the Keystone State.”
In the scant weeks since its enactment, towns from one side of the state to the other have dusted off their laws and evaluated them for compliance.
FK – Every state needs pre-emption on gun laws and a militia force in every county to conduct an extensive and thorough “Liberal”(commie) trash season because our domestic blood enemies are never satisfied with a small slice of our cake, our our Liberty:
FK – The evil gun laws, that should ‘all’ be repealed, already ban youth from carrying handguns. If a 16-year-old has the responsibility to drive a 2000 lb vehicle down the highway that same young adult has the right to defend herself.
