“Citizen’s Petition to Secede from th United States”

I try to level my “conspiracy theorist” mentality with a good dose of rational thinking, so understand that I write this out of true concern.

There is a lot going around about the “citizen’s petitions for secession from the United States”, two dozen states have citizens doing this right now. First, citizens can’t do this, it requires a proclamation from the State, so sending this to the federal government does no good, petition you state representatives. Second, I believe this is a bigger risk than most of you realize, that is what I’m here to explain.

I looked into the site last night, it is completely legit as far as to what it claims to be, but that is the problem. It is a site set up by the Obama administration to field “complaints” about his administration. A petition isn’t even viewable by the public until it has 1000 signatures, after that you have the remainder of 30 days from the original creation to get 25,000 signatures or it is scrubbed from the system automatically. At 25,000 signatures, it red flags a government worker to look into it. So far it sounds innocent enough. Now for the bad part. In a case like this, signing would make you, in the eyes of the administration, and enemy of the state. In order to “sign” the petition you must register with the (government) site, required information being your name, e-mail, and address. Now you have just posted, on a federal website, your complete identity and location and that you are an enemy to the state. You have just but yourself on the federal watch list!

When the “fit hits the shan” who’s houses do you think will be the first hit, and who’s guns do you think will be the first seized? If you have signed this petition for you state already, I would suggest you keep one good rifle close and hide the rest somewhere safe and away from your property. If you haven’t signed one, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T!

The proper course is to write or petition your state representatives, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor.

One last thought, WHERE IS UNCLE TED?!

If firearms were to be banned…

So there are people who feel that we the people should not have firearms.

It seems that they have far more trust in our government than the average sheeple. We know that the government is not to be fully trusted. If they could be, why even have the media?

Have you decided that you just enjoy giving up your rights so much that you want to take other people’s rights away too? Are you such a big pussy that the cosmetic surgeons drool at the opportunities for vaginal rejuvenation procedures?

so which firearms should be banned and why?

 

The Hidden History of the Second Amendment – blessed or bullshit?

Professor Bogus argues that there is strong reason to believe that, in significant part, James Madison drafted the Second Amendment to assure his constituents in Virginia, and the South generally, that Congress could not use its newly-acquired powers to indirectly undermine the slave system by disarming the militia, on which the South relied for slave control. His argument is based on a multiplicity of the historical evidence, including debates between James Madison and George Mason and Patrick Henry at the Constitutional Ratifying Convention in Richmond, Virginia in June 1788; the record from the First Congress; and the antecedent of the American right to bear arms provision in the English Declaration of Rights of 1688.

2nd Amendment

 

Okay, for the first in a series of posts on firearms and citizenry, lets go.

Why did the founding fathers feel the need for us to have the right to bear arms?

 

The three main reasons were:

  1. To keep a militia at the ready to defend our nation
  2. so that the citizens could regain control of an oppressive government
  3. allow for slave owners to have protections from insurrection, at least the ability to quell them (this point is under heavy contention as bullshit)

We will be looking at more aspects as we progress through our tour.

Intrusion on firearms ownership

It has been brought to my attention that the ATF is seeking comments as part of a study to ban shotguns that have a magazine greater than five rounds.
I am quite tired of the various levels of government sticking their collective noses in an area where the framers of the Constitution were quite clear on, our need to be able to possess firearms.

It looks like they are considering classifying a shotgun with the larger magazine (or capable of accepting a large magazine) as a military weapon.

http://www.atf.gov/publications/firearms/012611-study-on-importality-of-certain-shotguns.pdf
(looks like it is dealing with the importation of shotguns, so I am guessing that it would not apply to domestically built firearms)

We The People should have military weapons as we are the militia, and have the right to defend our homes and families.

Five rounds… if the criminals know that you are limited to five rounds from the most effective home defense weapon, then you better spend more time on the range and in home defense type courses. because if the criminals can count and survive the five, you are fucked. I guess another option that this would bring about would be larger quantities of loaded weapons around the home. since you may not have the time to reload, you grab a spare… wouldn’t that idea really piss of the pussy-assed anti-gunners?

There is an email address accepting comments at the ATF… shotgunstudy@atf.gov

They believe that the following characteristics are “not particularly suitable or readily adaptable for proting purposes.”
(1) Folding, telescoping, or collapsible stocks;
(2) bayonet lugs;
(3) flash suppressors;
(4) magazines over 5 rounds, or a drum magazine;
(5) grenade-launcher mounts;
(6) integrated rail systems (other than on top of the receiver or barrel);
(7) light enhancing devices;
(8) excessive weight (greater than 10 pounds for 12 gauge or smaller);
(9) excessive bulk (greater than 3 inches in width and/or greater than 4 inches in depth);
(10) forward pistol grips or other protruding parts designed or used for gripping the
shotgun with the shooter’s extended hand.

Now, I do not recall the right to bear arms being hinged on sporting purposes.

I am likely to add to this post, so you may want to look for updates.
