Gun Grabbers Deny A Right To Self-Defense


[T]here is no indication that the Framers of the (2nd) Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.” — Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, in his dissent in the District of Columbia v. Heller

The 2nd Amendment is in serious trouble from the gun grabbers. You have seen the overt way in which they have attacked the right to keep and bear arms through efforts to pass a ban on so-called assault weapons and through President Barack Obama’s executive orders that infringe on the right.

Progressive collectivists like Stevens and Attorney General Eric Holder don’t believe that Americans have the right to defend themselves. Stevens stated so in his dissent of Heller. Holder said so in a speech.

In July, Holder told the NAACP:

There has always been a legal defense for using deadly force if — and the “if” is important — no safe retreat is available. But we must examine laws that take this further by eliminating the common sense and age-old requirement that people who feel threatened have a duty to retreat, outside their home, if they can do so safely.

And make no mistake, Holder speaks for Obama. If he didn’t believe this, Obama would have disputed it or fired Holder for making such a ludicrous statement.

Remember that back in August, Senator Patrick Leahy suggested that Democrats employ the nuclear option on Obama’s court nominees. If Republicans continue to block nominees, Leahy said, judicial nominees should be approved by 50 votes as opposed to 60.

Should one of the current moderately conservatives die or be forced to step down because of health reasons, reducing the threshold to 50 would almost guarantee a gun-grabbing nominee could be approved by the Democrat Senate majority.

Were that to happen, the 2nd Amendment would be dead as soon as a gun bill made its way to the Supreme Court.

    Don’t listen to liberals. They have a mental disorder. If you like to listen to people with a mental sickness you go right ahead. But don’t blame me for your human misery and suffering, …then death!

    But I urge the rest of us to ignore liberals by doing CIVIL OBEDIENCE. That is obeying only what is written in the Constitution!

    If millions practice Civil Obedience the sociopaths will have no power over you. You can just laugh at them as a circus act. The only safe liberal is one behind a cage.

    It’s easy to say for the clowns with secret service protection or those wealthy enough to hire private security. I should run from my own property to escape some thug wanting to cause my family harm ? Not going to happen ! Screw these commie bastards.

    The answer is in the preamble: When the government becomes destructive … and we don’t have to vote them either! The gun grabbers should choose friends carefully, they should choose enemies even more carefully! We have the guns, don’t make us NEED to use them!

    This false president is bent on destroying our way of life that most of us have worked very hard for, and his plan that he made in the beginning that we didn’t really hear was that he wanted to redistribute the wealth in this country, and of course all of the third and fourth generation welfare as well as most of the starry eyed liberals saw the opportunity to have a louder voice in freeing up the drug use laws so they could then just stay high all the time and not have to live in the real world, but now the middle class has finally awakened to figure out that the wealth that BO was going to redistribute was going to come out of their pocket,so basically what this redistribution program was that we would ALL be poor!

    When is someone going to stand up and put the word out there to this
    gang of racist traitors that they are not ever going to take the right of citizens
    of the US to not defend themselves, and that there needs to be a plan put in force to rid us of the cesspool of the drug infested inner city criminals that are responsible for the largest percentage of crime committed in the entire country,and they know exactly who and where they are, but these bozo’s are not interested at all in taking away their illegal guns, but they sure do work hard at getting the guns of legal gun owners, and make them criminals if they refuse to give up their weapons.


    We all understand why the Obama gang wants to succeed at this, and if I were him or any of his low life henchmen like Holder, Reid, Kerry, Pelosi,
    Bernanki, and the Clintons, I to would be very afraid if there were all of those
    legal gun owners out there ready to fight for their rights, and they know how to use them to remain free from tyranny of our own government.

    Where in the Constitution has the power to determine the constitutionality of a law been delegated to ANY part of government, let alone SCOTUS.

    Since the Constitution is a contract between We, The People and an entity referred to most commonly as “government”, and that contract is a specific set of duties and a specific set of limitations ON GOVERNMENT not on the people, it is up to US to decide, not the government. The methods to employ are 4.

    Ballot box
    Jury box
    Ammo box

    We must make EVERY effort to use the first 3 so as to never need to open the forth.
