Obama Arbitrarily Bans Veterans From Owning Guns: Constitution, we don’t need no stinking Constitution” – Barak Obama’s magic pen.

gun control camp

Apparently, “due process” in the US has been replaced by the pen of Barak Hussein Obama.  Ordinarily “due process” is required to deprive someone of their rights.  The idea is that government is not the granter of human rights, but the protector of rights endowed by our creator.  So, there has to be a legal process and a sound rationale for restricting the rights of an American citizen.  Unless, that is, you are a veteran in Barak Hussein Obama’s  Amerika, and you own guns. Fire Andrea Mitchell has more…

Constitutional Attorney Michael Connelly writes for Red Flag News:

How would you feel if you received a letter from the U.S. Government informing you that because of a physical or mental condition that the government says you have it is proposing to rule that you are incompetent to handle your own financial affairs? Suppose that letter also stated that the government is going to appoint a stranger to handle your affairs for you at your expense? That would certainly be scary enough but it gets worse.

What if that letter also stated: “A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both pursuant to the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub.L.No. 103-159, as implemented at 18, United States Code 924(a)(2).”?

That makes is sound like something right from a documentary on a tyrannical dictatorship somewhere in the world. Yet, as I write this I have a copy of such a letter right in front of me. It is being sent by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hundreds, perhaps thousands, of America’s heroes. In my capacity as Executive Director of the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) I have been contacted by some of these veterans and the stories I am getting are appalling.

The letter provides no specifics on the reasons for the proposed finding of incompetency; just that is based on a determination by someone in the VA. In every state in the United States no one can be declared incompetent to administer their own affairs without due process of law and that usually requires a judicial hearing with evidence being offered to prove to a judge that the person is indeed incompetent. This is a requirement of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that states that no person shall “… be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law…”.

Once again, it is apparent that due process of law now resides in the pen of Barak Hussein Obama.  In the most basic sense, this administration is saying to our returning service people…

Thanks for your service, and F**K YOU!

How to Disarm an Armed Attacker:  I know there are fellow Conservatives that will ask, Why are you ever unarmed,” but let’s face it, you can’t carry everywhere…

I saw this video recently via a friend on Facebook, and thought I might share it here.  It is always possible that you might be attacked by an armed criminal, especially in a democratically controlled anti-gun area.  So, here is the video.

Of course, there are no guarantees, but this is better than having sudden onset inter-cranial lead poisoning.

Shaneen Denise Allen Granted Pardon by Governor Chris Christie

Share

Last summer, the CH 2.0 covered the story of Shaneen Denise Allen, who committed the unpardonable sin of being honest and hardworking, which caused her to run afoul of the New Jersey authorities.  Here is some coverage at that time from out contributor, Chris Wysocki.

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. She took a gun safety course, applied for and was granted a concealed carry permit, and bought a gun.

Then she made the mistake of driving into New Jersey.

Now she’s going to prison.

Allen said that she didn’t know her permit didn’t apply to New Jersey so when she was stopped for a minor traffic offense she told the police about her gun and her permit to carry. In this case, being honest may have cost her.

“The judge tried to tell me that telling the truth messed me up, my life up and the cop said the same thing. Me opening my mouth and speaking out he said I’m one out of ten people that spoke up and was honest and that got me in trouble,” she said.

Allen was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of hallow-point bullets which were in the gun. Under New Jersey gun laws, the illegal possession of a gun is a second-degree felony which holds a minimum sentence of three-years in prison.

I hope all you moms demanding “gun sense” are happy. Because your draconian gun laws are working. They’re taking dangerous criminals like Shaneen Allen off the streets, and leaving her kids to fend for themselves.

Now, Ms. Allen has some justice, for after nearly a year of legal wrangling, and quite a bit of time in jail,  governor Chris Christie gave her a full pardon.  The Daily Caller has more…

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Thursday pardoned Shaneen Allen, an African-American single mother from Philadelphia who was arrested last year in New Jersey for bringing a handgun into the state even though she was permitted to carry it in Pennsylvania.

Christie signed the pardon at noon Thursday: “I, Chris Christie, governor of the State of New Jersey, by virtue of the authority conferred upon me by the Constitution of the State of New Jersey and the statutes of the state, do hereby grant Shaneen Denise Allen, a full a free pardon for all criminal charges and indictments arising from the arrest occurring October 1, 2013 to include the aforesaid crimes, and this order is applicable solely to said criminal charges and indictments, and to no other.”

Luckily for Ms. Allen, justice did work for her.  Sadly, it took all of this time to rectify it.  For once, I applaud Governor Christie, who I usually have little use for.  This time, however, he was on the right side of the issue.

Gun Grabbing Democrat, Jamilah Nasheed, Gets Nabbed with Gun!

Share

gun_control_works

In an act of typical democrat hypocrisy, a democrat gun grabber was recently nabbed carrying a gun.  Liberty News has more…

Why did staunch gun control advocate Missouri State Senator Jamilah ‘Switchblade Sista’ Nasheed feel the need to arm her self to participate in a ‘peaceful protest‘???

FERGUSON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Missouri State Senator Jamilah Nasheed had a gun in her possession at the time she was arrested Monday night outside the Ferguson Police Department, according to Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson.

Nasheed declined comment about the having the weapon, but did tell News 4 she has a concealed carry permit. A Ferguson police officer said Nasheed was carrying a fully-loaded 9 mm handgun and additional rounds.

Sources also told News 4 Ferguson police requested St. Ann to administer a breathalyzer test at the time of her arrest because she “smelled strongly of intoxicants,” but Nasheed refused to do so. Nasheed said Tuesday she was not intoxicated at the time.

This really goes to the fact that democrats don’t want ot ban guns, they just want to control WHO has guns.  Under democrat gun grabbing laws, only two classes of people have unfettered access to guns; police and criminals.  You, however, the law abiding citizen, have no access.  So, when the democrats and their criminal allies, such as union goons, “social justice advocates” and the like, come to intimidate you, they can rest assured that your ability to effectively defend yourself has been neutralized.   In their eyes, there is not a thing wrong with Jamilah Nasheed carrying a gun.  You owning one however, needs to be stopped!

I covered this in a previous post, The Psychology of Gun Control.

Liberal Logic: Ignore/Deny Lives Saved with Legal Guns

Share

If we’ve learned anything about liberal logic over the last five years here at the CH 2.0, we’ve learned that the principle enemy of liberalism is reality.  Reality shows that global cooling global warming climate change The Big Lie is exactly that.  Real life experiences of the victims of ObamaCare show that the people were not able to keep their insurance or doctors.  The evidence is staggering that welfare programs promote more poverty.  I could go on forever, but you get the  point.  When confronted by their enemy, liberals resort to any of four main tactics…

1.  Lie and deny.  “It didn’t happen, causes we said so!”

2.  Ignore it.

3.  Attack those that present it.  For example, threaten the lives of people that have lost their insurance.  Or, instead of actually debating the facts (and losing badly), the liberals will attempt to discredit the source or presenter of the information.

4.  Blame someone else.  When it cannot be ignored, “Bush did it!”

Here’s an example when the ignore strategy was used.  Liberal Logic has it…

They might have used the “threaten” strategy, but that would have done little, with Jeanne Assam being armed and all.

The fact that guns save lives-far more than those that are taken with them, has to be ignored.

Daily Kos Laments that Klingon Disruptors can be “purchased and carried anywhere in Georgia! “

Share
pro vs antigun
But what did they think about Klingon Disruptors?

OK, maybe it wasn’t a Klingon Disruptor, but the Kossacks really stepped in it when they decided to run a story about the guns that could be purchased and carried in Georgia.  The Mental Recession has more…

The Daily Kos, a far, far, far left-leaning group of basement dwellers, has posted a handy guide for their readers to see what guns can be purchased and carried in Georgia under the new Guns Everywhere Law.  The member post, titled GUNS, GOONS, AND GEORGIA, even includes a poster-type image of such guns.

Problem is, the author used a poster full of toy guns, including a “pulse rifle” which can only be seen in science fiction movies such as Aliens.

The caption below the image reads:

“These guns can be purchased anywhere in Georgia and carried into a church, bar, school or library.”

Here is the image:

Toy Guns

As they are toy guns, they indeed could be purchased and carried openly in Georgia.  The lone exception being the pulse rifle.  Because …

It.  Doesn’t.  Exist.

The Aliens Versus Predators site describes the pulse rifle as a “22nd century” era weapon used in “various engagements with the Xenomorph and Yautja” alien species.

Alrighty then.  the Kossacks got caught lamenting the availability of fictitious toy guns.

However, in “gun free Chicago,” there were over 80 completely unexplainable cases of Sudden Onset Lead Poisoning during the July 4th weekend.   Good thing they have tough gun laws out there, isn’t it?

And by the way, how much would  one of those Pulse Rifles set me back? Or, maybe even  a Klingon Disruptor?

A Visit To A Gun Show Reveals Why Liberals Are Way Off When It Comes To Gun Control

Share

gun show

When it comes to liberal talking points about gun control, you’ve heard it all before. Michael Bloomberg paid for a ad for McAuiliffe’s gubernatorial bid against Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia.

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s $1.1 million anti-gun advertisement buy for Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Terry McAuiliffe. Bloomberg funneled the money into Virginia through his PAC, USA Independence and advertisements have been running on radio and television since Tuesday. One television ad in particular targets the “gun show loophole” and states in a voiceover, “The gun show loophole. It means anyone can buy a gun without a background check.”

Read the full story at Townhall.com here.

And Time magazine tried to help perpetuate this myth as well.

Stoned faced and curt, the President used unusually pointed words to criticize the 45 Senators, including four Democrats, who successfully defeated the bill, which would have expanded mandatory background checks to gun shows and online sales.

“I’ve heard some say that blocking this step would be a victory. And my question is, a victory for who?” he continued. “All that happened today was the preservation of the loophole that lets dangerous criminals buy guns without a background check. That didn’t make our kids safer,” said President Obama.

Read the full story here.

But the odd thing is, well this just isn’t true as we find out thanks to MRC TV’s Dan Joseph. He heads inside a gun show to see how their gun sales operate.

Eric Holder’s Friendship Bracelets

Share

Eric the Red

“I have a very strict gun control policy: if there’s a gun around, I want to be in control of it.” – Clint Eastwood

“A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.” – Larry Elder

“Remember the first rule of gunfighting … have a gun.” – Jeff Cooper

“When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.” – Clint Smith

“In England, if you commit a crime, the police don’t have a gun and you don’t have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say ‘Stop, or I’ll say stop again.’” Robin Williams

“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.” – Sigmund Freud

“The Attorney General asserted that he has a ‘vast amount of discretion’ about how he does or doesn’t choose to enforce our nation’s laws. Which doesn’t make them laws so much as whimsical suggestions.” – Stilton Jarlsberg

It’s interesting, isn’t it, that Democratic politicians, the most rabid of whom are protected 24/7 by armed bodyguards, are forever demanding the confiscation of everyone’s means of defense except their own.  The motives of these left-wing elitists would be less suspect if they concentrated on disarming criminals instead of law abiding gun owners, but then that would make them conservatives, and we wouldn’t be having this discussion in the first place.

Radical in '73 Radical in '14The contemptible Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s increasingly testy Attorney General, has spent his time in office enforcing only those federal laws which he and the rest of Obama’s executive branch radicals deem agenda-worthy, while blithely ignoring the rest.  Holder calls such arbitrary malfeasance “prosecutorial discretion”  and cites “racism” and the enmity of the “gun lobby” as the only reasons he and his boss have encountered any resistance to their unconstitutional schemes.

Attorney General Holder dropped the race card on the table today, throwing down a clear suggestion that the mistreatment he thinks he’s getting from Republicans is based not on the content of his character – which actually, it is – but on the color of his skin.

Charging “racism” is, of course, the preferred defense of every scoundrel of color in these enlightened times, as well as being the approved rejoinder of the Democratic Party to anyone astute enough to disagree with their boneheaded ideas.The Real Racists

Obama, Holder, and the rest of the Red-winged radicals currently roosting in the nation’s capitol are not our best; and, given the disastrous nature of the policies foisted on us over the last 5 years, they’re a long way from being our brightest.  Take Holder’s latest hare-brained proposal — fitting lawful gun owners with government tracking bracelets:

… when some screaming maniac chainsaws his way into your house on a dark and stormy night and is shredding the closet door behind which your terrified family is huddling, do you want your gun disabled because of a complicated, fallible electronic ID bracelet designed by the same techno-idiots who came up with Healthcare.gov? (“Error 404 – Try Shooting Later!”)

Clearly, there’s a pretty wild disparity between Holder’s belief that such an ID system for gun owners is simply “common sense,” while a photo ID system for voters is, in his words, an “aggressive step to curtail the voting rights of African-Americans.” (Byte the Bullet)

On the other hand, there are lots of dangerous people in this country who need to be closely monitored.  And most of ‘em have a (D) after their names.

Armed Gunman at a Dollar General Stopped by Armed Citizen, Media Silent

Share

gun_control_works

Whether it was to be a robbery, or a mass killing is no longer relevant.  Because, you see, the armed intruder that rounded up a Dollar General staff and customers into a break room didn’t count on meeting an armed citizen.  The Selma Times Journal has more…

ORRVILLE — Law enforcement officials are calling Marlo Ellis a hero in the wake of Thursday’s shooting at the Dollar General in Orrville.

Ellis shot and killed Dallas County resident Kevin McLaughlin after McLaughlin entered the store, reportedly shouting and waving a gun.

Authorities said that as McLaughlin was leading a group of people into a break room, Ellis turned and used his own pistol to shoot McLaughlin. Ellis’ weapon was concealed according to Sheriff Harris Huffman.

McLaughlin was pronounced dead shortly after the shooting.

Dallas County Sheriff’s Department chief deputy Randy Pugh said McLaughlin’s motive is still unclear, but the death appeared to be a case of self-defense.

“We don’t know what would have happened, but we know what could have happened,” Pugh said. “We see every indication that the shooting was a case of self defense.”

He said Ellis was properly certified to carry a concealed weapon. Though, Ellis may have broken the law by entering the store with a weapon.

A sign at the store’s entrance says the Dollar General does not allow the open carry of firearms, but neither the sheriff’s department nor District Attorney Michael Jackson say they plan to press charges against Ellis.

Of course, if liberals had their way, who knows how many people would have died.  You see, the criminal, who wasn’t following laws anyway, would have been armed, but the law abiding citizen that stopped him would not have.   Of course, a bunch of people would likely die, but so what?  As long as liberals get to disarm the people, the death or thousands are a small price to pay.

New York Gun Owners Burn Their Registration Forms

Share

gun_control_works

In a second state, gun owners are refusing to comply with newly passed gun laws.  Add New York to the list with Connecticut, as gun owners there are burning their gun registration forms…

With an April 15 deadline to register their weapons looming, New York’s Second Amendment advocates aren’t going down without a fight.

And they’re already looking ahead to elections in November.

Hundreds of gun owners and their supporters turned out Sunday in the upstate New York town of Wilton for a protest aimed undermining the Democrat-championed Secure Ammunitions and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act to the point it “collapses under its own weight.”

Taking a page from the Vietnam War protesters who burned their draft cards four decades ago, the demonstrators burned New York state’s gun-registration forms.

“We are opposed to registration because the evidence is clear that registration leads to confiscation,” event organizer Jake Palmateer, co-founder of the NY2A Grassroots Coalition, told the Post-Star.

The law bans private ownership and sale of firearms classified as “assault weapons.” Previously owned weapons are allowed as long as they are registered with the state by April 15.

They nailed it when they mentioned that gun registration leads to confiscation.  There is no other reason to know where all the guns unless you plan on taking them one day.

Gun Confiscation In Connecticut … Just the beginning

gun_control_works

Good morning folks! I have to tell you, the arrogance and ignorance of your average liberal is absolutely stunning. They cannot foresee things happening right in front of them either because they don’t want to or they genuinely are just plain stupid … or … they want certain things to happen because of their own twisted mind-set. In that case they’ll do their best to convince informed folks that they really aren’t seeing what happening, but they’re just paranoid.  A few loony liberals mock and disparage conservatives over the possibility of firearm confiscation.  One site which linked to another had this to say about it … They’re coming to take my guns away, ha! ha!  They’re coming to take my guns away! It’s been six years folks and the number of guns confiscated because of Obama is?  How about “Zilch?” How about “Zero?”
Oh but the Right Wad will say, “Maybe they haven’t come for your guns yet but that doesn’t mean they won’t!” That’s what the Right Wads always say and none of their nightmares have ever occurred – ever, have they?

“Right-wing fear-mongering” is the mantra of the blind left … blind enough to not be able to find themselves in a mirror.

I REST MY CASE CONCERNING LIBERALS    <- click there and strap yourself in.

Anyway, for those of us who do not live in fantasy land, here’s what happening …

CONFIRMED: Gun Confiscation Has Begun In Connecticut

Speculation about how the state of Connecticut would respond to the thousands, perhaps tens of thousands, of gun owners who failed to register their firearms by December 31 ended when the state police sent out this January 2, 2014 letter to all those who registered late, but who in the process gave the state sufficient information to brand them as criminals: name, address, description of weapon or magazine, and date of ownership:

Dear Sir/Madam:

We are returning your application for assault weapon certificate and/or large capacity magazine declaration because it was not received or postmarked prior to January 1, 2014 as required by law.

As a result, you have the following options for your assault weapon …

1. Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable;

2. Sell the assault weapon to a licensed gun dealer;

3. Remove the assault weapon from the state, or …

4. Relinquish the assault weapon to a police department or to the [state’s] Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection….

Sincerely,

Lt. Eric Cooke, Commanding Officer, Special Licensing and Firearms Unit

…Update (Feb. 28, 2014 @ 12:10 p.m. EST): In response to concerns that the letter from the Connecticut Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection quoted above might be a hoax, The New American called the department to confirm the accuracy of the letter. Lt. Vance of the Connecticut State Police confirmed that the letter is accurate in every respect and was sent out with the date of January 2, 2014.

Re-writing the Constitution to our demise … part II

Share

A few days ago I wrote Re-writing the Constitution to our demise to address the latest attack on the 2nd Amendment rights of American citizens. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens who is 93, and I’m not sure if all his oars are hitting the water now that he’s retired, suggests the 2nd Amendment be re-written or amended to read …

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.

Now anyone can understand what, if that were to happen, would be the result; immediate confiscation of privately owned firearms and disarming of the American public, ie.  anyone not serving in the ”militia”.  And then we have the highly intellectual far-left liberal who takes it a step farther …

“A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of any of the People who are members of an officially recognized militia, who are engaged directly in the business of an officially recognized militia, to keep and bear arms while engaged in duties pertaining to the performance of the mission and objectives of an officially recognized militia shall not be infringed – – but duck hunting and taking excessive advantage of “Stand Your Ground” laws is not included in the aforementioned definitions.

Asinine at best.

In Justice Stevens’ view the authors of the 2nd amendment were mostly concerned about oppression from a national standing army and were not concerned about the right to self-defense.

Think about what that intellectual giant is suggesting. If the authors were mostly concerned about oppression from a national standing army wouldn’t Justice Stevens’ re-write of the 2nd Amendment create that precise possibility? The “militia” would be the only armed people …  the oppression which concerned the authors of the  2nd Amendment is exactly what Mr. Stevens’ proposal makes possible.

Connecticut Demands Gun Owners Register Their ‘Assault Rifles;’ Tens of Thousands Reply, “Nyet Comrade”

gun_control_works

In the wake of Sandy Hook, Connecticut gun grabbers capitalized on dead children to pass a ban on the sale of assault rifles ugly guns.  Because as we all know…

Criminals break laws.

Passing more laws keep criminals from breaking laws.

Because criminals don’t follow laws anyway…

Makes sense, doesn’t it?

Anyways, the Connecticut law allows present assault rifles ugly gun owners to keep their gun, as long as the register them, so they can be confiscated one day.  However, the good people of Connecticut has decided that the state has gone too far, and are electing to not participate.  Fox News has more…

 

It ought to be interesting to see how the gun grabbers handle this. Do they think they can put tens of thousands of people in prison? Will they bust a few as a warning to the rest? Will they offer an amnesty? Time will tell, and I will cover it.

9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out California’s concealed weapons rules

I’m doing lately what I don’t usually do … find a story and simply link to it. But this one is too good to pass up. I know it’s difficult to believe but the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw out California’s concealed weapons rules.

Court tosses California’s concealed weapons rules
Federal appeals courts strikes down California’s concealed weapons permit rules

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A divided federal appeals court has struck down California’s concealed weapons rules, saying they violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Thursday that California is wrong to require applicants to show good cause to receive a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court ruled that all law-abiding citizens are entitled to carry concealed weapons outside the home for self-defense purposes.

The divided three-judge panel disagreed with two other federal appeals courts that have upheld permit rules similar to California’s.

The U.S. Supreme Court often takes cases when federal appeals courts issue conflicting rulings.

The Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that law-abiding citizens can keep handguns in the home for self-defense purposes, but didn’t address whether that right extends outside the home.

I have to tell you though, the best part of this story is in the comments section. Scroll down after you click on the link and read some awesome comments by ordinary citizens.
