Team BHO isn’t letting any crisis go to waste.

April 6, 2009

Kenn Jacobine notes that our Dear Leader’s team isn’t letting the crisis in Mexico go to waste either.

It’s a chance for them to attack your basic human right of self-defense and the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. A document that is clearly in the way of Team Lightbringer’s goals.

A green technology we should support.

Oleg Volk points out that firearms are a green technology in a most delightful way.

Barak Obama isn’t a fan of the First Amendment either

September 26, 2008

Don’t expect much Freedom of Speech under an Obama regime. He is already giving a glimpse into our possible future by threating to bringing lawsuits against broadcast stations. This is to intimidate them into not running NRA sponsored ads that tell the truth about Obama’s anti-Civil Rights, Anti-Second Amendment record.

Update: A damn good point is raised over at Mr. Volokh’s blog.

I fear that under the Obama administration, the lawyers sending these letters will be government employees.

I’d have to say it’s a damn near certain thing.

It seems that factcheck.org got their facts wrong concerning Barak Obama’s view on one of the basic Civil Rights of Americans.

The violent criminal’s friend, Barak Obama

Barak Obama Voted Four Times For Criminal Charges For Homeowners Who Use Their Guns In Self Defense.

Let’s review what this means. A criminal breaks into your home, threatens you, your spouse, your children. If you attempt to use an effective method of self-defense to protect you, your property, your spouse, or your children, liberal democrat Barak H. Obama wants you to be arrested and charged with a crime.

This is the true face of Barak H. Obama and the hard far left extremists. You are not a citizen, but a ward of the state, who should be dependent on the state for all things. You are not to be in control of anything, including the right to protect your own life and well being.

Of course, in his pursuit of power, Barak Obama lies about this:

Barack Obama specifically voted four times in the Illinois Legislature to allow criminal charges against a homeowner who used a firearm in self-defense of their person and home — specifically what the Supreme Court says is a constitutional right. Obama may say he supports it, but his record says exactly the opposite.

As Ms. Coulter said, “They win in the dark; we win in the light.”

Sunday Morning Quotes

June 29, 2008

Five years ago we were told that increased refinery and oil pumping capability in the US would do no good because it would take five years for those to affect gas pump prices. Query: if we had greatly increased supply over the past five years, would not oil be at about $75/bbl, still high, but not headed to $200? And if we do nothing to increase supply now, where will oil go? … We are in a time of national emergency, but it does not affect the politicians, who continue business as usual.
Dr. Pournelle, HT to Mr. Reynolds

Nukes are out, coal is filthy, wind power destroys Ted Kennedy’s view, and solar leads to “environment fears.” Do they just want us all to freeze in the dark? Pretty much, I’d say …
Glenn Reynolds

Gun Control? It’s the best thing you can do for crooks and gangsters. I want you to have nothing. If I’m a bad guy, I’m always gonna have a gun. Safety locks? You pull the trigger with a lock on, and I’ll pull the trigger. We’ll see who wins.

The Supreme Court upheld the Second Amendment as an individual right, i.e. reserved for the people.

The left has to lie…

June 26, 2008

As I’ve pointed out before, the anti-Civil Rights Victim Disarmament crowd have to lie. The truth just doesn’t support their anti-Human Rights platform.

The latest example, by way of Mr. Reynolds, is NPR‘s own Nina Tottenberg.

Just heard her doing a bit on Heller in which she said that the Supreme Court has always construed the Second Amendment as a collective right. That’s just plain false, and at this stage she should really know better.

Let us review the facts:

“… ‘the people’ seems to have been a term of art employed in select parts of the Constitution. The Preamble declares that the Constitution is ordained, and established by ‘the people of the U.S.’ The Second Amendment protects the right of the people to keep and bear Arms….” – Supreme Court of the U.S., U.S. v. Uerdugo-Uriquidez (1990).

“The states cannot, even laying the Constitutional provision out of view, prohibit the people from keeping and bearing arms so as to deprive the United States of their rightful resource for maintaining public security, and disable the people from performing their duty to general government.” — Supreme Court of the U.S., Presser v. Illinois (1886).

“The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the Second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner.”
- Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, 97th Congress, Second Session ( February 1982 )

So we have at least two Supreme Court cases, one as recent as 1990, and a finding of the Senate Judiciary Committee, all stating that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right, reserved for the people. Ms. Tottenberg is supposed to be an expert on the subject, and really should know this kind of basic material. Keep in mind that NPR has a history of ignoring the facts when it comes to the basic Human Right of effective self defense.

If the Brady Anti-Civil Rights folks told the truth…

June 16, 2008

…they wouldn’t have a case. The facts are against the anti-Civil/Human Rights Victim Disarmament crowd.

Alphecca has yet another example of this.
Even the BATF is calling them on fudging the numbers in order to lie to the American public.
