What Part of “Shall Not Be Infringed” Are You A Little Fuzzy On?…

The daily mail has a great roundup of pictures from yesterday’s Gun Appreciation Day. Unfortunately, because the U.S. media is carrying so much water for Obama on this one, you won’t find these visible realities on TV news.

(The Daily Mail) Thousands of gun advocates gathered peacefully Saturday at state capitals around the U.S. to rally against stricter limits on firearms, with demonstrators carrying rifles and pistols in some places while those elsewhere settled for waving hand-scrawled signs or screaming themselves hoarse.

The size of crowds at each location varied – from dozens of people in South Dakota to 2,000 in New York. Large crowds also turned out in Connecticut, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Washington state.

Some demonstrators in Olympia, Wash., Phoenix, Salem, Ore., and Salt Lake City came with holstered handguns or rifles on their backs. At the Kentucky Capitol in Frankfort, attendees gave a special round of applause for ‘the ladies that are packin’.  (read more)

    Marches or not, the Forces of Darkness (no pun intended) are intent upon making sure that the metastases of Obamanation will be incurably in place by the end of His reign. The idea that Americans would dare oppose the implementation of a state of order under which the enlightened would lead the Great Unwashed (I did this one already, didn’t I?). Anyway, guns now, soon control of what the media can broadcast and print, later implementation of a centrally-planned life for each subject. From each according to Federal dictates, to each according to Federal dictates. Orwell, the visionary.

    the only media control required is: to keep them from going so pro-Obama that they scare the other useful idiots into thinking. Fox is just ignored. The minority does not matter. Elections have consequences (bad, very bad)

      I pretty much ignore Fox any more, too. Nobody tells me what to think or what to do about what I think, except the Sovereign God. The facts about America’s past and present inform my thoughts.

    I hope it turns out with the move on guns, like the timing of obama’s “presidency,” that they got ahead of themselves and did it just a bit too soon: the gun owners from the Vietnam vets to the pistol-packing size 6 ladies are absolutely not compromised in spirit or numbers or vitality–not one little bit.

    News about Michigan’s rally:

    http://www.mlive.com/politics/index.ssf/2013/01/gun_rally_michigan.html

    Also this week, some of Michigan’s Republican senators have introduced a bill designed to try and prohibit federal regulation of Michigan-made firearms that stay within the state.

    If that bill were to be approved by Michigan lawmakers, it likely would face legal challenges. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has issued letters to states that have passed similar laws, saying that federal law supersedes the state laws.

        I want somethin’ done about the mis-use and over-use of apostrophes. I very nearly turn in a SN. If Chip took action, he would do it only as a gentleman, so it might turn out better than my apostrophe attack. Oy vey just doesn’t seem to be my starting point….so I try to leave it alone. Usually. 8O

      Wait a minute. Federal intervention into firearm laws within states has previously failed, this article is not fully expanding the truth. If you build a firearm, and only sell it within the state it is constructed, constitutionally, no federal laws may apply to restrict it.

      That said, the feds have tried to use the ‘interstate commerce clause’ to intervene and supercede the 10th amendment. In short the feds argue that *all* the material including the metal ore used to fabricate the sheet metal, must originate in the state, and no raw materials can come from out-of-state. However, that argument has failed as many times as it has succeededd in court.

      So there is hope for legislation like what stella shares…. at least, I think there is. :(

    I couldn’t make it to any of the rallies today, so a squad of us gunslingers went to the range. We shot a couple thousand rounds with 22 pistols and rifles, 9mm and 45 handguns, AK47s and AR15s, M1 Garands and bolt action high power. Odd, no one was injured or killed. We really appreciated that our guns behaved themselves.

    The founding fathers mentioned nothing about limiting magazine capacity, but despite the first amendment free speech rights, advocated a limit on the number of words in the law.
