Senate True Conservatives Vow Spirited Fight Against Gun Control

March 27, 2013 by  

Senate True Conservatives Vow Spirited Fight Against Gun Control
Senator Rand Paul filibustered on March 7. Will he do so again soon?

Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) have hinted that another old-school filibuster may be in store if lawmakers attempt to push any new gun-control legislation.

The Senators delivered a brief letter to Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) stating  opposition to “any legislation that would infringe on the American people’s constitutional right to bear arms.” They will likely attempt to hold up the procedural vote to begin debate on a gun package put together by Reid when the Senate returns from its current two-week spring break.

While it is unclear whether another epic old-school filibuster– like Paul’s demand for answers on drones before CIA director John Brennan’s confirmation earlier this month– is in the cards, a Cruz spokesman said the lawmakers are “prepared to use any procedural means necessary to prevent stricter gun control laws.”

Below is the letter Reid received:

    The liar-in-chief stated on national lame stream media that the American people want his gun ban scheme which is in the top ten lies spewed this year. Of course no one wants gun violence and most Americans would agree with that, but most Americans do not buy Comrade Feinstein’s and the Presidents socialist dream to disarm law abiding Americans and that’s where this attack on guns is going. The govt buys billions of rounds of ammo, 2700 MRPS trucks, eleven barb wired FEMA camps, 300 drones for use in the USA skies and Obama and his socialist surrogates want to take our guns and no one smells a rat.
    You can research the data for yourself using Google search engine, its all true and more.

    • red neck

      The DHS is in denial over their 2 billion rounds of hollow point bullet purchases not to mention the 7,000 full auto “personal defense” assault weapons… Meanwhile back in obama-land, tours to the white house have been indefinitely suspended because of a shortage of money to fund personnel…. Seems as if a purchase of a few less hollow point bullets would have funded tours for months?

      • Larry K.


      • Archangel

        Yeah….NO to White House Tours….Yes to Biden’s 2-day, $1 million Dollar Hotel bills and Limo Rides.

        What about Obama’s vacations? His Girls are in Atlantis, now. The Obama’s are averaging more than one vacation per month. Meanwhile the majority of Americans are struggling to pay the Mortgage, Pay the Healthcare bills and put food on their tables.

        This Sh*t has got to stop !


      @Howe Joseph – the Libs / Dems are in denial of those facts

      @Redneck – again Libs / Dems see nothing wrong with suspending tours / indefinite detentions and though they need to suspend WH tours to cut spending they have 500 Million to send to Muslim Brotherhood along with F16′s jets and 200 Abram tanks and they see nothing wrong with this either.

      They cannot fathom that their King would have sinister intentions towards them. As long as they keep getting their monthly check, they will follow and obey what they hear from twits like bill Maher and Piers Morgan and their lies spewed from “Organizing for Action” (Messina and the rest of them that send out their BS emails) Lets not leave out Obama messenger boy “the Carney bobblehead”.

      • WILDFIRE

        I’ll also add that it is not just this Administration. Plans have been made for decades, but the most dramatic changes and striping of our rights have been under this Administration at a increased rate. In fact Obama him self told his people that he will fundamentally change America. Most of his followers are the takers of society, so they have nothing to loose and everything to gain in a land of socialism / Communism, so they think. Yet 98% of them has never actually been in Countries under Socialism or communism to see what life is like under these forms of Government.

        Now the Dems / Libs will gravel about its Bush’s fault or Reagan’s Fault, if that don’t stick they’ll try to place the blame on the Easter Bunny just as long as they can deflect and distract the fact that regardless to past Administrations, they are done and over and Obama is 5 years into his Administration. By now he could have changed anything bad that previous Admins have done. If he can write EO’s randomly for whatever he wants including altering our Constitution, then certainly he could reverse anything any other President has done. So to blame Previous Presidents in his 4 / 5th yr of office. “That Dog won’t hunt”, Any failures fall squarely on his shoulders because he’s had plenty of time to reverse any purported damaging policies previous Admins inacted.

        Not only time but he also had a Congress that was fully in the hands of his democrats. And instead of eliminating the policies of the previous Admin he extended most or all of them.

  • CZ52

    Good for them. There should be a bunch more Senators joining them but I will not hold my breath waiting for that to happen.

  • CZ52

    In fact there should be so many Senators joining Paul, Cruz, and Lee Reid would be forced to shelve the legislation indefinately.

  • STEVE E.

    We need to vote out all the Senators and Congressman in 2014 who do not support R. Paul’s position.

  • Doc Sarvis

    Another illustration of how out of touch with the American people this Conservative bunch is and how in-the-pocket they are to the NRA. By far most Amerians, most gun owners and most NRA members want more control of firearms. The NRA benefits greatly, as do the gun manufacturers when there is a mass shooting, like the one at Newtown – they practically promote it.

  • Gary

    Good for them. One can go all day about the new infringements these treasonous law makers are trying to impose on our 2nd amendment rights. Every American should make it their mission and message to vote any and every politician who votes for ANY new gun legislation OUT OF OFFICE. JUST DRIVE THAT MESSSAGE HOME TO THEM EVERY CHANCE YOU GET. VOTE ALL THESE TREASONOUS BASTARDS OUT OF OFFICE ONCE AND FOR ALL AND SAVE THIS GREAT COUNTRY FROM ANY MORE THREATS TO OUR INALIENABLE RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS!

  • Christine

    Doc I hate to say it you are out of touch with the American people. I want my Second Amendment rights, I want to bear arms if I need to, and this is what our Founding Fathers wanted. Our Government took away our right to have GOD in schools, they have taken away our freedom of speech and now they want to take away our Second Amendment rights. How long is America going to let and over inflated government take away our freedoms. Our Founding Fathers Believed in GOD and the pursuit of happiness the First and Second Amendments, this is why they were put in place to make sure we had certain freedoms so government didn’t think it was GOD. In the world we live in today the criminals have more rights than we law abiding citizens do.

  • James Andrews

    “They practically promote it?” What a bunch of lefty crap! You obviously know almost nothing about the NRA. They are a great organization, and the leader on gun safety training. In fact, more poilce officers are trained by NRA certified instructors than any ohter group. They are also the oldest civil rights group in the nation. If you don’t like guns, don’t buy one-but don’t mess with the rights of law abiding citizens to do so. And concealed carry laws and rights have been so successful, that more and more states are allowing it.

  • Capitalist at Birth

    Another dolt, with the reading comprehension of a fifth grader. “Shall not be infringed” means exactly what it says. If you want to change the Second Amendment, there is a process you may use. I would be willing to bet, that it is you, who is out of touch with the majority of Americans. Take your chances in changing the Constitution. Until then it stands as it is written or amended.

  • tony newbill

    Bolshevism was successful in creating supply shortages and then taking over through oppression anothers humanity . Before they did it with food control , this time its being done through the money , and if you consider what Kissinger said to control population all you need to do is control the Money and resources , and thats what we have today in the Global economic sense , and once the free market fully collpases from the distrust thats spreading like a canacer throughout the world economy today , you will see the final collusion of the rich and the Government Carreer Politicians and they all will begin to impliment the international oprression of all time .

    This is what the USA was founded to DEFEND AGAINST and we are allowing it to usurp our rights from Within . It will take a small representation to rupture this and drive the unwilling representatives to defend citizen rights out of power .


  • Warrior

    Dr. Paul is on a mission to “defend” the “Constitution”. Reject ALL that stand in his way. This man is a “true patriot”.

  • Flashy

    Chrstine…what ways is your 2nd Amendment right to bear arms limited by having universal background checks, a limit on clip capacity, and a ban on assualt type weapons (which use is only for mass killing)?

    As far as “god’ in the schools etc…you never had that “right”…by the limits of the Constitution, government cannot favor one religion over any other. If your ‘god” is preached in the schools and my children … then you MUST allow my gods to be preached to your children. Otherwise, government is allowing ad giving favor of one religion over others. you’d accept that? To have my “gods’ preached to your children on an equal basis with your “god” ? And we’ll have to allow Wiccans, Satanists, Scientologists, Krishnas, etc equal access as well… careful as to opening those doors you preach for.

    BTW…of those Founding fathers you say wanted to allow ‘god” to be the rule for this Nation..which of the hundreds are you referring to? Those that were Protestant? Catholic? Baptist>? Lutheran? Agnostic? Muslim? Which ones?

  • CZ52

    “… and a ban on assualt type weapons (which use is only for mass killing)?”

    Once again Flashy tells this lie I suppose hoping that if he repeats it enough it will eventualy become true. There are many thousands of deer and other game killed with the AR-15 and SKS so called “assualt type weapons” each year. The AR-15 is also one of the more popular varmit rifles in use. Either of those also make an excellent home defence weapon when used properly.

    As far as magazine capacity give me three GOOD reasons I, a law abiding citizen whose worst offence is a parking or speeding ticket, should not have a 20, 30, or even 100 round magazine if I want them. In fact give me one GOOD reason.

  • momo

    @CZ52 don’t get bent out of shape with flasha$$, he’s just a worthless agitator who thinks he’s intellectually superior to everyone here. This fool doesn’t even know what caliber an AR15 takes.

  • CZ52

    momo, I am not bent out of shape by him but every so often I feel I must expose Flashy’s nonsence for those who might be new to the site.

  • Susan

    To Flashy up above, you are a liberal minded idiot, get off our conservative site take you stupidity somewhere else, Yes we had the Bible in Schools in our founders time. I have the right to own whatever gun I want I am.a responsible law abiding citizen, and don’t need no dam Mommy Government telling me what to do! I love God first I like my Guns, and I don’t give a rats but what people like you think.. I have the right to own an At15 our son is in the Military he says the Ar15 are not assault weapons.

  • Susan

    To flashy below sorry

  • Flashy

    Susan…you want the Bible in our schools? Which version? King James? Old Testament only? What religious interpretation should we have? Catholic? Baptist? lutheran? Methodist? Mormon? And if we have YOUR religion…should we not allow all religions then ? C’mon..step to the plate and lay out your cards….

    “I have the right to own an At15 our son is in the Military he says the Ar15 are not assault weapons.” And that makes him THE expert then eh?

    So…in what way does universal background checks and limiting clips and a ban on assault type weapons infringe on your rights under the 2nd as you see them?

    BTW…if you don’t ant to face hard questions drawing you out to state exactly your position…don’t go posting on sites.

  • Tom

    It is about time we have someone in Congress who isn’t afraid to stand for the people they represent and not go with the flow. I applaud these young senators and I would like to say Thank You for standing up for us against the 2nd Amendment liberals. We usually get alot of lip service but no action and now we have these Senators who stand for what they believe and say. We need more of them and get rid of the ones who ignore the wishes of the people. They forget they work for us.

  • john811c

    All regulations, taxes, limits on magazines, limits on types, registration forms, gun ownership databases are the infringements by rules and regulations of ownership are in fact INFRINGEMENT on the 2nd amendment and no where in the constitution does it give the government that right on the contrary the second amendment states in 2 sentences that right. the second being “SHALL NOT INFRINGE” The first part being an Organized militia of FREE citizens can be any organization that stands to preserve the Freedom of the republic does not say Federal or State organizations, thus it is reserved for the citizens to comprise those should it be necessary. As always Liberals never read the Federalist papers because it precisely shows what the founding fathers were thinking on this.

    The first violation of our 2nd amendment occurred in WACO when helpless children were murdered by our Federal Government to suppress the Church Dividian right to have and bear arms. The gun grabbers cite Sandy Hook as just cause, but they fail to ever mention what our Federal Government did under Bill Clinton that led to the deaths of the children by roasting them alive , at WACO that the federal authorities caused. Evidence of that has been suppressed or destroyed as then Janet Reno and Bill Clinton were involved in this. This is but one example of the infringement the government plans for its citizens

  • Gary

    Many thanks to our elected officials for standing up to the individuals that believe (as I do) that the Constitution is not a flexible document that can be altered to fit certain groups beliefs. Bravo good gentlemen, and keep up the fight. We are all grateful.

    We the people.

  • john811c

    Actually Rand has got it wrong in his letter, And what the 2nd amendment is all about. It is a statement to would be tyrants that the American people have a right to bear arms ( those arms equivalent to today’s standards ) to oppose the removal of the right of the people to protect our FREEDOM with the force of ARMS by any bill in Congress and to assert this right to prevent the take over of our republic by would be tyrants and to use force if necessary to do this. That this right will never be infringed upon (regulated, taxed, administrated over are ALL forms of Infringement)

  • Howe Joseph

    The U.S. Constitution is the document that binds us all together to keep us all the greatest country in the world. The 2nd Amendment is short and sweet, it states: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. The articles of confederation and the federalist papers on top of several Supreme court decisions supports the completely accurate letter of Senator Rand Paul and the others who have the gonads to stand up for our freedoms.

  • Flashy

    “If you don’t like guns, don’t buy one-but don’t mess with the rights of law abiding citizens to do so.”

    Or what? If you have a wrong perception of gun rights, and don’t agree with sane rational people who desire a society safe and free from intimidation from armed testosterone seeking nut cases, ya gonna shoot us?

  • Capitalist at Birth

    Flashy, If you have the courage, come and try to take my firearms and ammunition. Of course you won’t, because you are a coward. Yes I will shoot you, if you try. I won’t be shooting to wound. Just a heads up.

  • john811c

    It was sane and rational people who legislated in Germany their rights to have fire arms the results 8 million Dead Jews killed in the concentration camps. It was the Communist government of Russia who decreed that it was Illegal to own guns, in fact they confiscated them all and Murdered 20 million Christians of all denominations and Jews in their Gulags, World wide every time a dictator comes to power they do one thing first regulate and then confiscate guns. World wide this has caused 170 million deaths because the populations were made defenseless against their governments. The first thing they must do in America to make us like the rest of the world is to make us defenseless and take our guns. Do you think our government would be so nice as not to do this to its citizens think again, the only thing that is stopping them now is the 2nd Amendment. So people Like Flashy who cite rational may they be the first to go to the FEMA re-eduction camps when the government decides to send them, how will they resist that decision unarmed.

  • john811c

    It was sane and rational people who legislated in Germany ( AWAY) their rights to have fire arms the results 8 million Dead Jews killed in the concentration camps.

    correction to the sentence

  • CZ52

    “…who desire a society safe and free from intimidation …”

    Just how am I or anyone else intimidating you if we own one or more firearms of our choice? Just how am I or anyone else intimidating you if we are properly carrying a concealed firearm? For that matter just how am I or anyone else intimidating you if we carry openly as long as our firearm is holstered and not being waved around in a dangerous manner.

  • Nadzieja Batki

    Flashy, you are a pitiful excuse for what passes for a human. Is your life so out of control that you have to have someone else control it for you, make decisions for you, feed and clothe you, burp you, and when you bawl everyone must jump because Flashy’s bawls demand it.

  • Don 2

    Flashy says: Or what? If you have a wrong perception of gun rights, and don’t agree with sane rational people who desire a society safe and free from intimidation from armed testosterone seeking nut cases, ya gonna shoot us?

    You make assanine comments, implying that law-abiding citizens who own guns are nut cases intimidating you. Would you mind telling us exactly how many times this has this occurred to you anyway? I think the rest of us on this site know that the real nut case is the guy making these type of nut case comments. Why do you bother anyway? You must know that you are not changing anyone’s mind here, and except for the entertainment factor that your comments supply the rest of us, anti-gun people like you only serve to unite and strengthen our resolve not give up our freedoms.

    If you think that you will be safer and have more freedom from intimidation from armed nut cases, in a place where citizens are prohibited from privately owning firearms, perhaps you should seriously consider a move to Mexico, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, or Communist China?

    For the record, the rest of us ‘rational’ people will keep our guns because we desire a society safe and free from intimidation from armed testosterone seeking nut cases, as well as power seeking political nut cases like Obama, Schumer, Reid, Pelosi, Feinstein, Cuomo, and basically the power and control hungry Democrat/Communist party in general.

  • Capitalist at Birth

    What level of education have you achieved. Evidently you need to work on your reading comprehension. Exactly what don’t you understand about these four words: “Shall not be infringed”?

  • red neck

    Flashy….. GO AWAY!…. Nobody likes you not even your mother!

  • Don 2

    It must be hard on Flashy’s mother though, having her kid living on his computer in her basement.

  • phideaux

    Don 2, Flashy has admitted on more than one occasion he comes on this site as part of his work. He uses the information he gathers here to write reports for his bosses and also makes comments while he is here. That makes him a paid shill coming on here to disrupt things.

  • Flashy

    CB To be clear… and i am serious about this…

    1. do you believe the Right recognized by the 2nd triumphs over all other Rights?
    2. do you believe felons, ex cons, people with a violent history, and mental cases should be allowed to purchase and/or possess a gun?
    3. do you believe a semi private entity, sch as a church, should be allowed to say ‘no guns here in public worship” or should you be allowed to pack disregarding the desires of the open to public worship entity?

    What would your stance be to those questions?

  • Flashy

    “Don 2, Flashy has admitted on more than one occasion he comes on this site as part of his work. He uses the information he gathers here to write reports for his bosses and also makes comments while he is here. That makes him a paid shill coming on here to disrupt things.” <–phideaux

    Funny how that can be twisted around and hyped to be so untrue as to be laughable. be my former position, I did use some of the information on the psychological bent of the far right to utilize in my forecasts and reports as to future economic and social movements in order to position certain company moves.

    During the period of '09-'12, the TP/American Taliban and the wacked movement held a sway which far exceeded the numbers. It was only a matter of time before it faded as all extremist movements do, but during its heyday, it did impact our economy (negatively) our society (negatively) and our place in the world (negatively).

    It wasn't "information" more than getting a 'feeling" as to the extremist mindset. Now, as to being a "paid shill" … perhaps that would be applicable to people such as that minda sorta well known bookie Wayne Allen (Romney in a Landslide) Root, Ben Crystal, Bob Myers etc… but certainly not me.

    Have a nice day…

  • phideaux

    Flashy you have stated in the past you are paid for your job. You have just admitted once again you come on this site for information. While on this site to gather that information no matter what you say you are gathering you make comments. That means you are being paid to come on here and make comments therefore you are a paid shill.

  • Nadzieja Batki

    Flashy, there is only one Word of God so your comment is pure nonsense. You and your equals don’t like what the Bible says so you have to keep tinkering and expunging the language but the Bible still ends up condemning your character and behavior.

  • Archangel

    Flashy, I want to correct your idiocy, and once and for all, expose the lies / dispel the myths told by the ideologically and financially driven lame stream media.

    You obviously support this idiocy and wish to further propagate the same lies.

    IT’S TIME TO EDUCATE YOU…(and any other liberal moron who may participate in this blog)

    What Obama and his merry band of tyrannical cohorts are proposing to ban are commonly called by Obama, Diane FineSwine, and the mass media, as “Assault Weapons”.

    That said….what they are trying to ban does not exist.

    The BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) concurs…there is no such weapons “class”

    The weapons named on the Feinstein “ban list” are simply semi-automatic rifles that are made cosmetically to LOOK LIKE Assault RIFLES. They are IMPOSTERS and do NOT Function the same way.
    These semi-autos fire one bullet at a time with each pull of the trigger. They function no differently than any other semi-auto weapon.

    These rifles are commonly used for large game hunting including Wild boar, deer, moose and antelope, They are also commonly used by farmers and ranchers out west for controlling the coyotes which poach their livestock and kill sheep, goats, chickens, etc.

    They are also used for other sporting purposes such as competitive shooting competitions INCLUDING THE OLYMPICS.

    Finally they are also an excellent Home Defense rifle…no matter what Joe “the Gaffeman” Biden says.

    The best phrase to describe these weapons are “Modern Sporting Rifles”

    All That said, TRUE Assault RIFLES (not Assault Weapons) which have the characteristic of being FULLY AUTOMATIC are already “Banned”.

    Matter of Fact. Assault RIFLES were banned in 1986 as part of the NFA (National Firearms Act). They are deemed as a class 3 weapon, and they are registered with the ATF. A Civilian can still purchase them, but they VERY HIGHLY REGULATED and require a hefty tax stamp. All said, the cost to procure a 1986, Pre-ban NFA Full -Auto Rifle can cost into the 10s of Thousands of Dollars. VERY FEW people own these weapons.

    Another LIE you and the media are propagating is with regards to “CLIPS”

    Saying “Clip” when you mean “magazine” is rather like talking about socks when you mean boots. A Clip is a very different thing to a magazine and the terms are not interchangeable.

    Magazines are simply an ammo box with a spring. They can be detached and a full one installed, to reload the weapon

    However A “Clip” forms an integral part of the gun’s mechanism and are ONLY PRESENT IN A FULLY AUTOMATIC WEAPON.. If the rounds are not held in a Clip the gun cannot go through the full cycle of chamber, fire and eject.

    When FeinSwine, Reid, Obama and the uneducated media talk about “High Capacity magazines”… or even worse, when they say “Clips”, most of the time they are talking about “STANDARD CAPACITY” Magazines.

    In other words…Most manufacturers of the AR-15 will provide a STANDARD 30 round Magazine with the sale of their gun, it is the STANDARD EQUIPMENT that came with the purchase.
    This is NOT unlike the “Factory equipped V-8 engine” on a Ford F-150.
    FeinSwine wants to neuter all weapons and limit the rounds to 10 or less….not much different than telling Ford they have to install a 1 cylinder lawnmower engine in a 5000lb truck. LOL

    As to “Universal Background Checks”….We already have a Background Check…It is called NICS, and it has been used for decades. While it is imperfect (as all Gov’t programs are) it is already invasive enough.
    “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” is very clear language. Lawful Gun Owners have already capitulated enough, their privacy to allow the gov’t intrusion into something that is a God-Given RIGHT.
    RIGHTS to protect ourselves and families are not granted by man or governments, but rather by GOD. And the most important reason to arm the people is to make the gov’t fear the people…not the other way around…Protection from a tyrannical gov’t….which is EXACTLY what we have at this moment. An out of control Federal Behemoth, trying to dictate EVERY part of our lives (case in Point..Obamacare…. and Bloomberg is the litmus test for the rest of the nation)

    It is not called the BILL OF PRIVILEGES…It is called the BILL OF RIGHTS…Nuff Said.

    Don’t forget…the Revolutionary War was fought against England when they tried to control and confiscate arms in Colonial America. If they go for the guns, and try to register and confiscate, I can assure you that there will be a second Revolution in this country. People are waking up to the tyranny

  • Archangel

    BTW FLASHY….there is only one Word of God.

    The Various Versions of the Bible are irrelevant because in the end, they all pretty much say the same thing.

    It cannot be disputed that this nation was founded on Judeo-Christian Principles, and DIVINE PROVIDENCE is what formed our Constitution, which was written by and for FREE MEN.

    Please watch this factual, historical video:

    You and the Libs continue to attack traditional values…whether it is the Bible, The Constitution, Marriage, organized religion (in general), capitalism, etc,…Every part of our FOUNDATION. In doing so, Libs foolishly think they can impose their will and form a Utopian society…which will NEVER happen. Utopia is fantasy

    But what happens to a building when you radically attack and chip away at the foundation with a Jack Hammer?

    Answer: Exactly what is happening in this ONCE GREAT Nation.

    Think about it..

  • Tommy cunningham

    Flasy- actually the need to teach religious morals in school, no specific denomination but the basic teachings, it makes for a more rounded education and a moral people, which is the reason the northwest ordinance of 1787 was passed thru congress ” pay attention” to paragraph 3, and it was followed till a little over a hundred thirty years ago. It’s fact that the cities with strictest “unconstitutional ” gun laws have highest crime rates, as normal citizens are denied the right to keep and bear arms, yet the criminals aren’t as they break laws to obtain, so why not arm everyone? Eventually the bad guys will be shot or deterred from taking property or life of other citizens!

    Frenchie, You ask…”What is wrong with the GOP / RNC right now”?

    I will answer this question. The DNC and RNC are BOTH OWNED by the Elites…the Left /Right paradigm makes Americans believe they have choices, when in reality, WE have no choices…otherwise we would rebel…cause a revolution.

    This is just one big drama-filled Reality TV Show. Our elected officials are ACTORS in Political Theatre. They are self-serving and could give a sh*t less about their constituents or the country. They are puppets to the Elites who line their pockets and bestow massive wealth and protection on those who fulfill their mission.

    The reason why , WE THE PEOPLE continue to have to vote for the lesser of two evils is because the Elites control the game and the game board. The Elites CHOOSE who will run, and regardless of the election outcome, THEY WIN.

    “The chosen” always follow the agenda of the elites. They are merely puppets. It doesn’t matter who it is…Obama, Bush 43, Clinton, Bush 41, Reagan, Carter. The agenda has always been the same….1. Grow and expand the powers of the Federal Gov’t, meanwhile taking powers AWAY from the People and States 2. Expand National Debt (this is even true under Clinton…debt and deficits are not equal) 3. Attack Civil Rights and Liberty (Patriot Act, NDAA are the worst, just to name a few) 4. Attack and diminish the Constitution.

    Ask yourself this simple question…. ” In what ways did the past 6 Presidents EXPAND FREEDOM and LIBERTY?”

    Rand Paul is different because, at the core, he believes in Libertarian-ISM, just like his father. Rand had to run as a “GOP” candidate in order to play the game and become elected by the constituents in the State of KY.

    We need more people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Mike Lee who are hellbent Constitutionalists. They are our only hope, however they are a small minority. The Congress and the Elites are worried…they want to purge these kinds of Patriots from gov’t. We need to support these people!!!

    We the people also need to realize what is REALLY going on.
    You and I need to educate others…convince others to bury their partisanship, Don’t cheer for either the Blue team or the Red Team…but to understand that we must restore the Constitution and our Constitutional Republic as it was intended by our founders.

    It is the only way to fight those Oligarchs who wish to desolve the Republic and move towards a One-World Gov’t…The New World Order

    Even for common sense like background checks?


  • Nadzieja Batki

    Who says that background checks are common sense? Will you have time to investigate the investigators to make sure they have common sense to do background checks?

  • Archangel

    We have had background checks for decades…it is called the NICS system. And though it’s not a perfect system it works. (BTW…which gov’t program IS Perfect??)

    Despite what the libs and lamestream media try to propagandize to the UNINFORMED PUBLIC, NICS Checks are also fully implemented at gun shows. I am a 20 yr gun collector, went to more than a dozen gun shows last year and only saw 1 booth in all 12+ shows where someone was selling their deceased Grandpa’s personal collection in an effort to liquidate his “estate” after passing away.

    Even in that ONE SINGLE INSTANCE, the sellers would not sell any guns without first checking for any potentials buyer’s concealed carry permit and a State Driver’s license.

    The “Gun show Loophole” as reported in the news Is a FABRICATED LIE….a tool of the left. Just like Libs like calling scary LOOKING semi-auto rifles…. “Assault Weapons” which don’t EXIST, BTW.
    (FACT: Assault RIFLES…full auto weapons, were banned in 1986 in the NFA)

    Don’t take my word for it….Go to a gun show and see for yourself. Educate yourself instead of believing AND regurgitating everything you hear/see on TV

    Registration = confiscation

    NCIS is a corruptible government run operation that can conveniently not loose checks that turn up OK for the gun buyer thus creating defacto registration.

    Here is a common sense background check system. It is a LOT less expensive then the privacy invading one currently used and new one proposed.

    Check the background. Is it a prison (county jail etc)?

    If yes then don’t sell a gun to the inmate.
    If no then sell the gun to a free citizen.

    KEEP Criminals IN JAIL. It’s that easy.

    Thank you Archangel. Well said! That IS why I cast a vote for former NM Governor Johnson in this past Presidential election.

    Although Rand does have an R in front of his name which still raises serious doubts, I do take some comfort in knowing that the fruit does not fall to far from the tree.

    You know and I know that this RNC will never allow Rand to be a front man as that would be too dangerous a proposition for the establishment. I am not certain that he could be bought and led around on strings like so many before him.

    I am saddened but not surprised that out of the entire body of elected officials only three had the brass ones big enough to sign that document.

    The rest of those scumbags need to be thrown in prison for their acts of treason to their country. And if those signers feel the threat is real then they should by all means shut it all down. This is what should have happened in 94 and I blamed both parties for the original passing of that unconstitutional POS which was the original assault weapons ban.

    It may all be for naught though if the Federal Government continues to hoard ammo at its current rate. Americans should NEVER be under supplied in Ammo in relation to its Government!

  • Archangel

    I don’t think Rand can be bought. From an inside source in Kentucky…..the only reason WHY Rand Paul “endorsed” Mitt Romney was so that his Dad and the contingent of his Dad’s supporters would be invited to the RNC Convention, and spread their influence and message. In other words… Rand has had to play the game….He was only a junior Senator and overshadowed by his father.

    Now that Ron is out, Rand is now making a name for himself and he has PLEDGED today to fillibuster gun control amongst other things. I believe He is just getting started…you can count on that.

    Sure…Rand is going to ruffle a lot of feathers with the likes of the crusty GOP establishment (ie. John McCain and those like him) , and that is exactly Paul’s goal…to separate himself from those guys and sort of re-establish the GOP…. Which will seem “draconian” to some (the very liberal folks) , while “liberal” to others (establishment Republicans).

    I suspect that if Paul is not nominated in 2016 (which will be the case if the elites continue to control R. Priebus or whoever may be leading the RNC at that time) Paul will run as an independent, but hopefully by that time he will have enough groundswell and grass roots support that he can actually win an election.

    The key here is UNIFYING Americans. I believe that the fabric or thread that hold us together as a civil society in a Constitutional Republic, IS The Constitution. This will pull moderates, Independents, and People from both the Left and the right together.

    The only folks who will surely oppose the efforts of restoring the Constitution are the militant Leftist Control Freaks

    I also expect you will see a return of Jim DeMint for a 2016 Run.

    That is…If Obama doesn’t destroy and tear this country apart in the meanwhile.

  • ROGER, Irish-Canadian LIBERTARIAN

    Is RAND PAUL truly a man of Principle? I, As a Libertarian activist, with hundreds of email, activist,writer and purblisher contacts, have TWICE requested Rand Paul give me his stand on,Israel,Syria and Iran and he has not even given me an acknowledgement MUCH less a proper reply…. yet he constantly emails me about every other issue at least twice per week except for those Issues I have asked about. I did not trust him before and I don’t trust him now because i believe he is one of the “Great Pretenders”. Either by accident or design he is part of the NWO tactic of , “Divide and Rule”

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents permission to go on a field trip or take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor, or check out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If the government wants to ban stable, law-abiding citizens from owning gun magazines with more than ten rounds, but gives twenty F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but not a 24-ounce soda because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make you fat, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl confined to a wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA, but a woman in a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head searched, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If children are forcibly removed from parents who discipline them with spankings, while children of addicts are left in filth- and drug-infested homes, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government intrusion, while not working is rewarded with EBT cards, WIC checks, Medicaid, subsidized housing, and free cell phones, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If the governments plan for getting people back to work is to provide incentives for not working through 99 weeks of unemployment checks, without any requirement to prove they sought, but couldn’t find work, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest big screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, wall-sized plasma do-it-all TV’s and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    If being stripped of the ability to defend yourself makes you more safe according to the government, you might live in a nation founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

    What a country!!!!
