So why has there been no movement on reciprocity and on the additional provision of recognizing state permits in the District?
“We’ve got over 80 cosponsors at this point,” Massie told Walters when asked the status of his bill, which is currently and procedurally in the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform because Congress has oversight responsibility for Washington D.C. He’s “pressing for a hearing on it.”
“Why haven’t we seen movement over either 38 or 2909 since the horrific events in Virginia?” Walters asked, noting the Republicans control the House and the Senate and both Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell appear to be blocking bills advancing the right to keep and bear arms.
“You know what?” Massie replied, “The Speaker told me he didn’t think the timing was right. And I think this is the exact timing to bring this bill.”
Of course it is. What a disingenuous excuse. When will the timing be better?
FK – It’s been a puzzle to me for some time now why all the Trump voters aren’t keeping republicrat phone lines melted down.
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 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 – So-called ‘free energy’ has probably ‘been kept from us’ for far longer than a century, probably for a reason, as in we’re not ready for it. I wish I could see things differently. But billions happily slave away with no conception of what human Liberty should or could be and with no sense of the personal responsibility it entails. Every quadrennial cycle of the quest for the idiot vote proves this.
What would the results be if millions of us were daily melting down the phone lines to our congress critters and legislators and local elected public servants demanding our Bills of Rights, our natural born Liberty, be restored?
With no desire to understand human Liberty and the personal responsibility that comes with it most deserve to be treated as slaves. Simple sad fact. We preserve what freedom we can for that tiny minority in every generation that actually uses it to move humanity forward. But we still exist in a very dark and dangerous age where billions are perfectly willing to kill millions in defense of ‘their’ sadistic god who they hope will burn the vast majority of humans that ever lived, including kids and babies, alive in fire forever while they stand around happily singing praises to it. I can’t think of anything more pathetic.
I think Wilcock, greer and such are full of crap. There are a lot of hucksters in the ‘ufo community’ same as most others. It’s a good bet they ain’t all here to ‘save’ us, anymore than some guy mowing his yard steers around all the ant hills.
All religions are successful cults. The most successful don’t require too much responsibility on the part of their adherents, as in “We’re gonna get beamed up soon so we don’t have to worry about anything that happens here,” while they pass their slavery on to their descendants.
It’s all about power, control, dominance, hegemony, empire. What they fear is enough of us finally realizing that we outnumber them.
Ya know, I really have no desire to hurt the feelings of that walrus with two kids I see in the redneck mecca who I think had no business breeding and its kids that can’t help that they were born and will likely end up like their parents. So I don’t think boundless telepathy would be a good idea. We’re having enough trouble managing the net and all the govt. and corporate surveillance that the average sheeple is too stupid to understand how evil it is, as in “If I’m not doing anything wrong I have nothing to worry about.”
Maybe universal esp would be a good thing if we were all pre-programmed mindless biological robots designed to stay within certain performance parameters…. Uh wait.
I don’t think we yet understand whose illusion we’re destroying.
Maybe the younger generations will find a way out of this darkness:
FK – If we kept the phone lines to congress and the state legislatures melted down as we should they’d be forced to pay attention. Instead everyone’s gone back to the couch or the golf course since the great savior was elected.
FK – Antifa or whatever cute name they’re calling it this week has probably been temporarily called off because it was bad press(propaganda). We can’t be presenting the wonderful, loving, civil, pacified commie ‘left’ as being ‘violent’ especially when they strive so hard to disarm us all so we can’t hunt them when enough finally understand the necessity of doing so.
“Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas?” – Josef Stalin
Don’t worry, they’ve simply gone off to some dark corner to lick their wounds and re-hash their same ‘ol lies.
“Most people prefer to believe that their leaders are just and fair, even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which he lives is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one’s self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all.” – Michael Rivero
Who’s our greatest enemy? Those who build the Trojan Horse or those who open the gate?
Nothing will get better until we stop worrying so much about the fundie ragheads and start rounding up and at the least deporting our real enemies, our domestic enemies.
So who or what is our real enemy? A tiny no. of fundies who manage to kill a few mush heads now and again or our own white home-grown “Liberal”(commie) trash that works relentlessly to disarm and thus fully enslave millions?
What will we do when a commie SCOTUS rules it’s OK for the “Liberal”(commie) trash, our real enemies, to demand we ‘turn them in?’ How many cowards will comply? Those are the questions that matter.
What’s an ‘illegal gun?’ Those two words are nowhere to be found in the Second Amendment. A right applied for is a privilege.
Was the last ‘mass shooting’ site a ‘gun free zone?” Why are commiefornia and others still ‘may issue’ states? Why do we seek ‘permission’ to exercise the most basic right any creature possesses, that of self defense?
If the Marxist mutt and other commie extremists that call themselves ‘liberal’ and ‘progressive’ tell us to surrender our weapons and thus our most basic right, they’ll find out what blood really is.
The most important ‘private property’ anyone owns is their own life, health, safety, and no one, anywhere, anytime has the ‘right’ to take that from them or deny them their most basic right, that of self defense.
We all get the elected public servants the brain dead sheeple deserve.
I’ll vote for the candidate that will bring the troops home, activate the militias, and re-invade and re-conquer commiefornia and the other commie enclaves on the left and East coasts.
They’re not ‘leftists,’ ‘liberal’ or ‘progressive.’ They’re communists/globalists. They want us disarmed so we can’t kill them when enough finally wake up to the necessity of doing so.
Our Liberty is dying because of our failure to hunt the “Liberal”(commie) and globalist trash to extinction.
Virginia attorney Lenden Eakin sent me the text of the proposed order and gave permission to share it. I’d like run it past the Armed Intelligentsia here at TTAG to get your take.
The simple mechanism of attorney Eakin’s proposal: by defining certain categories of rifles for militia use, the President could strike state and local bans on many of the most popular “assault rifles” and their magazines.
Mr. Eakin also notes: “An Executive Order like this could have a significant impact on the litigation to challenge Assault Weapons Bans currently making its way through the Courts. It would help the challengers.”
FK – Wow. I read about half the comments, there are lots, so I’ll try not to tread any ground already covered except to say:
Here’s what the Second Amendment actually means regardless of how much our domestic blood enemies with white skin, the “Liberal”(commie) trash and other assorted authoritarians lie about it:
The right of the people to overthrow or prevent tyrannical or authoritarian government by force of individually owned arms, purchased or manufactured without government permission or taxes levied or paid, inferior to, equal to or superior to those commonly carried by soldiers, marines, sailors or militia members of any fighting force in the world shall not be brought into question. The right of the people to protect themselves from criminals in government, or any institution that may seek authority over them or from any common street criminal shall not be brought into question. Those elected, hired or appointed public servants who do question this proclamation and/or the people’s natural, most basic right, that all our other rights are based upon, that of self defense, shall be arrested, tried for treason and executed.
There’s no such thing as a good ‘gun law.’ All gun control is propaganda designed to condition the sheeple to accept more control with total civilian disarmament being the final objective thus all gun control is an act of war. All who forward it should be arrested, tried for treason against human Liberty and executed.
The Second Amendment, as the rest of the Bill of Rights, is an acknowledgement of our natural born rights, not a granting. The entire Bill of Rights is about keeping the governments in their place as our servants, not our masters. The Second Amendment is about the common person’s right to own weapons of war so that we can keep the governments in their place by keeping the ‘monopoly on force’ in the hands of the people where it belongs, as in ‘We the people.’ Remember that? It will not be infringed any further and the ‘gun laws’ in existence will be repealed. End of discussion.
After years of discussion and negotiation, Hudson’s new bill unifies the major components of the Second Amendment community and has the strong support of both Gun Owners of America.
The Hudson bill would ensure that victims of crime like Pennsylvania concealed carry holder Shaneen Allen do not face decades of imprisonment merely because they took an erroneous turn into another state. It would cut through the labyrinth in which 50 different sets of rules create an incomprehensible jumble which even lawyers cannot understand. We are constantly hearing from law-abiding Americans who want to drive from Florida to northern New England — and are confronted by up to 15 different sets of state laws. You can cross a state line in an instant — frequently without warning. And not being able to distinguish between the laws of New Hampshire, New Jersey, and New York may mean the difference between lawful conduct and a twenty-year prison sentence.
Which brings us to the final point: The Hudson reciprocity bill would make America safe again — by allowing Americans to exercise their God-given right to protect themselves, their families, and their communities.”
There are countless examples of people who have used their firearms in self-defense when they were away from home. Make no mistake about it, this bill will save many lives.
