Constitution

City of Houston Orders Pastors to Submit Sermons

Hat/Tip to Melanie Batley at Newsmax. The First Amendment to the Constitution reads: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. The Supremacy Clause in Article VI, Paragraph 2 reads: This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall […]

Illinois Man Just Humiliated Gov. Quinn in Less than 5 Minutes

Hat/Tip to Eric Reed at BuzzPo. Brandon Gatton, the Illinois State Director for Gun Rights Across America, and close friend to CH2.0, got tired of all the distortions and outright lies in political ads put out by incumbent Illinois Governor, Pat-Quinn-D. And the latest Quinn ad which is very anti-2nd Amendment really got under Mr. Gatton’s skin. So he took some time to sit down and deconstruct that video. Kudos to Brandon Gatton and Kudos to Gun Rights Across America! In case you haven’t seen it yet, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn’s re-election staff released a television ad targeted at eliminating […]

92% Of Mass Shootings Since January 2009 Occurred In Gun-Free Zones

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. You’d think that by now, even the most brain-dead Libs would get this basic fact. When you don’t let law abiding citizens carry guns, then the criminals have free reign to terrorize the populace. Or, as WeaselZippers succinctly put it: It’s like waving the dinner bell for sharks… Via Breitbart: On October 9, the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) released a revised report showing that 92% of mass public shootings between January 2009 and July 2014 took place in gun-free zones. The CPRC report was released in response to an Everytown for Gun Safety study claiming […]

Journalism in the Age of Obama: All the News The White House Lets Them Print

To be fair, the First Amendment enjoins Congress from restricting freedom of the press. I just never expected to see our legions of wannabe Woodwards and Bernsteins acquiesce so easily to White House censorship. White House press-pool reports are supposed to be the news media’s eyes and ears on the president, an independent chronicle of his public activities. They are written by reporters for other reporters, who incorporate them into news articles about President Obama almost every day. Sometimes, however, the White House plays an unseen role in shaping the story. Journalists who cover the White House say Obama’s press […]

Illinois State Trooper Blows His Top at ‘Safety’ Checkpoint: Must See Video

Ryan S. Taylor – Recorded His Run-in With Furious State Trooper Ryan Taylor was driving in Illinois recently and recorded his interaction with some State Troopers at a Safety Check. Now some are accusing Mr. Taylor of ‘watching too many YouTube videos’ or ‘being rude to the police.’ We at Conservative Hideout 2.0 don’t pretend to make that judgement. We simply highlight the news of the day that we think our readership will find interesting. Editor’s Note: We do not condone police violence or the overstepping of authority by the police. Nor do we condemn all police officers with the […]

89 Year Old Vet Fights Off And Shoots Robber

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Never mess with a Veteran! Even though he is 89 years old, Arthur Lewis knows how to take care of himself. Arthur Lewis is a serious bad ass. A decorated World War II vet, not only did he manage to fight off a much younger man, but he plugged him multiple times. His girlfriend, Vivien Bresnahan, 54, says she doesn’t understand why anyone would think Arthur was frail, noting that he was the farthest thing from frail. No kidding, as the 54 year old girlfriend might indicate…   Here’s a picture of the perpetrator, Lennard Patrick Jervis, […]

Gun Totin’ Granny to Would Be Home Invader: “Get Out While You’re Still Alive!”

“And take this lead with ya!!!” Hat Tip to WeaselZippers & MyFoxAtlanta. This is why we need the 2nd Amendment! An armed 73-year-old woman stood her ground when a man broke into her Lilburn, Georgia, home earlier this month, sending the suspect to a nearby hospital with a gunshot wound. The audio from the 911 call, released by police recently, captured the entire incident and proves she is one tough woman. The woman, who hasn’t been identified, says she heard someone knocking at her door at around 9:45 p.m. on August 3. She didn’t answer and a few moments later, […]

White House Fears Impeachment If Obama Unilaterally Grants Amnesty

    Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & Breitbart. It has to be a violation of his constitutional responsibility, which amnesty and effectively opening the borders most certainly is. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn’t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama — but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, […]

Liberal Professor and Constitutional Attorney Warns Against Obama’s “Re-shaping” of our Government

Arguably, since Lincoln took exceptional steps to keep the Union together and thereby expanded the powers of the office of the President, every man in the Oval Office since then has taken liberties with the Constitution. Some more than others, but it has been a case of ‘mission creep,’ to use military parlance. With all that being said, I’d wager to say that no President before Obama has done more to reshape the Presidency into near tyranny to the degree he has. Barack Obama has brought the idea of an Imperial Presidency to new levels. From legislating via Executive Order […]

Meet the honest 27 year old single mom from PA who faces 3 years in a New Jersey prison Shaneen Allen is no dangerous criminal. She’s a single mom working 2 jobs who’s already been robbed twice while traveling alone at night in Philadelphia. Her family suggested that she carry a gun for protection.

Soldier-Cop Blasts Gun Grabbing Lawmakers: MUST SEE Video

Hat/Tip to Rare and American Thinker. Watch this soldier-cop blow away gun grabbers’ arguments After the horrible school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut, the New York State Legislature passed the “NY Safe Act.” American Thinker calls this law “the rape” of the 2nd Amendment. The SAFE Act is far worse than you might imagine. Harold “Budd” Schroeder, member of the NRA Board of Directors from New York, described teh law as “the rape of our gun rights.” That is no exaggeration. The law is as harsh as (or harsher than) the gun laws of some European nations that […]

Furniture Store Kicks Uniformed Cop Out for Carrying His Gun

Hat/Tip to The Daily Caller. By now we’ve all heard of those idiotic restaurants and stores and associated other businesses that think they’re providing a ‘safe haven’ to their customers by putting signs in their storefront windows saying that this is a ‘gun free zone.’ Okay, so the crack head that is hoping to score a couple hundred bucks to get his next fix walks up to, in this case an IKEA Furniture, store with the intent of robbing it. Then all of a sudden he sees that this store is a ‘gun free zone’ so he turns around and […]

We Don’t Need No Steenking Gun Free Zone, Our Waitresses are Packin’!

The Pistol-Packin’ Mommas of Shooters Grill Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. In the aptly named town of Rifle, Colorado there is a restaurant who has taken the idea of “Gun Free Zones” and thrown in out like so much garbage. Instead, they’ve armed their waitresses and they’re letting everyone know about it. That’s right, guns are not only allowed, but warmly welcomed. While establishments around the country are setting up gun-free zones, one Colorado restaurant is welcoming customers who are packing – and they’re waited on by armed servers. The restaurant’s name: Shooters Grill, located in the gun-friendly town of Rifle. Waitress […]

Google Goes Anti-Gun

Hat/Tip to Awr Hawkins at Breitbart. Evidently Google is trying to behave like a Nanny State government, or maybe they are just trying to cozy up to Obama. But either way, the outcome, in this case, is the same. Google plans on banning gun ads… Beginning in September, Google plans to block firearm, ammunition, and gun accessory ads. According to Google Support’s “Dangerous Products or Services” page, the company “[wants] to keep people safe both online and offline, so [they] won’t allow the promotion of some products or services that cause damage, harm, or injury.” Included in the dangerous products for […]

U.S. Supreme Court Struck Down “Buffer Zone” Law

The U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously struck down a “buffer zone” law in Massachusetts which restricted where the pro-life advocates could counsel women outside of abortion mills.  The Court ruled that the Massachusetts law violates the First Amendment.   From Zenit:   The briefs demonstrated that the Massachusetts law violated the First Amendment rights of 40 Days for Life by establishing a 35-foot “no-pro-life” speech zone outside abortion facilities where no alternatives to abortion could be offered. AUL attorneys argued that the unconstitutional law impermissibly forced pro-life speakers to either “shout or be silent” and effectively prohibited speech by those […]

Obama’s NLRB Appointments Slapped Down by SCOTUS 9-0

Hat/Tip to My Way News. In a stunning rebuke of Presidential powers, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled unanimously that President Barack Obama’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012, bypassing Senate confirmation were illegal. The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the president’s power to fill high-level vacancies with temporary appointments, ruling in favor of Senate Republicans in their partisan clash with President Barack Obama. The high court’s first-ever case involving the Constitution’s recess appointments clause ended in a unanimous decision holding that Obama’s appointments to the National Labor Relations Board in 2012 without Senate confirmation […]

Rick Scott, Solid Pro-Gun Governor Signs Pro-Gun Legislation

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Florida Governor Signs Five Pro-Gun Measures Into Law, Including ‘Pop Tart’ And ‘Warning Shot’ bills   Via Guns Gov. Rick Scott approved several pro-gun bills Friday that covered everything from clarifying use of force to ending insurance discrimination against gun owners. “We have a solid, pro-gun governor who strongly supports the Second Amendment and these are all common sense pieces of legislation with a demonstrated need,” Marion Hammer, president of the Unified Sportsmen of Florida and past president of the National Rifle Association, explained to Guns.com in April. One of the most controversial of the pack was […]

Even Bloomberg’s lackey admits gun control doesn’t work

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Departing Leader of Nanny Bloomberg’s Anti-Gun Group Admits More Gun Control Laws Won’t Stop Mass Shootings… Now in case you’re thinking that this Mark Glaze fellow is coming completely to his senses, hang on. He’s blaming ObamaCare for not being able to take away your 2nd Amendment rights… Also claims the botched Obamacare rollout was the reason they failed to to pass gun control legislation. Via WSJ: Since the Newtown massacre, Mark Glaze has been the face of the gun-control movement. The executive director of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Mr. Glaze led […]

Gun Sales Soar Skyward, as Gun Crimes Plummet

Hat/Tip to TownHall, from a great piece by Katie Pavlich, one of my favorite columnists. When Nanny Bloomberg releases a report so factually inaccurate that CNN takes him to task on it, you know it’s a whopper of a lie. Earlier this week, Michael Bloomberg’s new anti-gun Everytown released a bogus report claiming since Newtown in December 2013, 74 school shootings have taken place. The report was so bogus, even CNN went out of the way, twice, to correct the record. More from Ed Morrissey: For the second time in two days, CNN went out of its way to debunk […]

Gun Free Restaurant Robbed at Gunpoint

Hat/Tip to TownHall.com . North Carolina restaurant The Pit was robbed at gunpoint on Sunday. Normally, local crime stories like this wouldn’t merit a Townhall post, but this one is different: The Pit has a “no weapons” sign displayed prominently on its door declaring the restaurant a gun-free zone, and bans patrons from carrying concealed weapons. Authorities said just before 9 p.m. Sunday, three men wearing hoodies entered the restaurant through the back doors with pistols, and forced several staff members to lie on the floor. The bandits assaulted two employees during the crime, but they were not seriously injured. […]
