Saturday June 9th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Just how the pe-ople feel
    He’s not some re-hearsed pol-i-tician
    This Trump is for real

    Oh we can see he shows no fear
    He’s got our back against the
    globalist schemes
    Makes the American Dream
    Now we know how much that means!

    Gotta vote Trump. Trump!
    Gonna vote Trump. Trump

    Re: FL license to carry
    This came in an email to me. I was glad to get it because I had been hearing about this and it sounded like the license to carry in FL might not be legal but they didn’t give the dates. There was no way to check it.

    DATE: June 9, 2018
    TO: USF & NRA Member and Friends
    FROM: Marion P. Hammer
    USF Executive Director
    NRA Past President
    The media isn’t getting it right and anti-gun Democrats don’t want to get it right — for some, it’s all about attacking a candidate for political reasons. This issue is extremely important to all firearms owners and license holders. Truth and facts matter, so here is what really happened.
    The Division of Licensing under the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DOACS) did, in fact, do background checks on applicants for licenses to carry concealed weapons or firearms.
    Background checks were done through FCIC (Florida Criminal Information Computer system) and NCIC (National Criminal Information Computer system — the national FBI fingerprint data base) and they also did a NICS check (National Instant Check System), which is the name-based background check system.
    The NICS system is the same system used by retail firearms dealers to do background checks when a person buys a firearm.
    During the time the employee failed to do her job, approximately 350,000 applicants for carry licenses were processed. Of those 350,000, 365 had a disqualifier based on the NICS background check.
    The employee should have uploaded those 365 into the internal computer system to stop the processing of those applications. She did not. So those 365 applicants got their licenses anyhow.
    Although they got their licenses to CARRY firearms, they still would not have been allowed to purchase a firearm from a firearms dealer because the same NICS background check would have been performed by a dealer and would have stopped them from purchasing a firearm.

    A license to carry does not exempt a person from the background check required when you purchase a firearm. The license ONLY exempts a license holder from the 3-day waiting period.

    When the Division discovered the problem, the employee was let go. The Division then ran new background checks on all 365 applicants who initially had NICS name-based disqualifiers. Of those 365, 74 were cleared and 291 still had disqualifiers, so their licenses to carry firearms were immediately suspended.

    THOSE ARE THE FACTS. The facts don’t fit narrative being pushed by the anti-gun political opponents of the Commissioner of Agriculture, Adam Putnam, who is a candidate for Governor.

    Feel free to forward this Alert to family members, friends and fellow sportsmen and firearms owners.

      “The facts don’t fit narrative being pushed by the anti-gun political opponents of …”

      They often do not. The Governor of NY is trying to push more anti-firearms legislstion to “make us safer”, while infringing on three to four amendments to the Bill of Rights.

      NY Governor Blows Off Due Process With Latest Anti-Gun Proposal

      So-called “red flag” laws are rife with the potential for destroying people’s due process rights, which is why groups like the Gun Owners of America refuse to back the measures. The thing is, they make a valid point. Unless the laws are written just right, private citizens can be disarmed on the untrustworthy word of people with grudges to settle, for example.

      In New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo has figured why even bother pretending due process is even a thing.
      Teachers and school administrators would be able to ask a judge to remove guns from the homes of troubled students under a first-of-its-kind proposal announced Tuesday by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

      The Democratic governor acknowledged his proposal will run into political opposition from Republicans, including those that control the state Senate. But he said it’s a commonsense way to prevent school shootings and get help to students at risk of harming themselves or others. He said it was a far more effective way of protecting students than arming teachers.

      “This is a sensible, positive, helpful alternative,” he said. “Many times the teacher knows this an issue.”

      Under the measure, teachers and school administrators would have legal standing to petition a court to remove any firearms from the homes of students considered a threat to themselves or others. New York would be the first state in the nation with such a law if the bill passes.
      Teachers Unions are backing the bill, and why not? It would give them power over students’ home lives in an unprecedented way. Especially when we have cases where students engaged in lawful activities have been singled out for punishment simply because a firearm was involved. Imagine what life would be like if those same teachers could not only punish the students, but also the parents?

      Meanwhile, no one is claiming that the parents are a threat. Oh no, this doesn’t involve dangerous parents at all. It’s about people who aren’t necessarily even old enough to own firearms who might be a potential threat and taking away property owned by the parent despite that parent having done nothing to warrant such an act.

      Imagine, for a moment, that we were considering a different sort of law. How would Cuomo and others feel if the proposal would take away parents’ computers because their children might be cyberbullies?

      Undoubtedly, many of the same people applauding this measure would be outraged over such an idea. Particularly if a Republican proposed it. If a Democrat suggested it, well…let’s just say partisanship is ugly.

      The fact that Cuomo even suggested this tells you all you need to know about him as a politician and a human being. It also tells you everything you need to know about the man’s understanding of the Constitution, which is non-existent.

      But remember, folks, no one is coming for your guns. Nope. Not a soul is coming for our guns. Except for the governor of New York, at least. And a former Supreme Court justice. And a sitting United States congressman.

      Other than them, of course.

      Also remember that if people like Cuomo get their way, no one’s rights are safe.

    I accidentally heard some drivel on the radio today. Commentary on the Melania Trump non-story.
    Now they are trying to frame it as, “why did all those people get so excited over nothing?”, but they are still talking about it.
    Remember when Hillary Clinton collapsed in public on 9/11?
    I remember the foolish “Can’t a girl have a sick day?” narrative used to try to turn noticing there was something seriously wrong with her health, into sexism, or something.
    So isn’t this sexism when they can’t shut up about Melania?

      She pled “not guilty.” Did she change her plea? Otherwise, this is fake news re her “confessing” anything.

    Today is June 9th on the current civil or commercial calendar and is May 27th on the traditional Orthodox Church Calendar. Among the Saints who are honored or commemorated today is Saint Bede the Venerable of Jarrow (England), who reposed in the year 735.

    This Anglo-Saxon monk was a theologian, historian, and chronologist. He wrote a number of commentaries on the Holy Scriptures. He also wrote the “Ecclesiastical History of the English People” that is still available today, as well.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
