….public protests, art, blogs and the right to a fair trial
April 8, 2013
All those who value free speech, art, public protests, internet blogs and due process should be waging an all-out information war right now to defend the Second Amendment. Why? Because if the Second Amendment is lost due to unconstitutional legislative and executive actions pursued by the government, then there are no limits to what civil liberties and individual freedoms the government can declare null and void.
All those who are arguing for infringements of Second Amendment liberties (universal registration, banning AR-15s, criminalizing high-capacity magazines, etc.) are effectively arguing to hand the federal government the precedent it needs to criminalize free speech, religion, public protests, internet blogs, Youtube videos and more.
In effect, gun grabbers are arguing for the government to have the power to overturn the Bill of Rights when it is popular to do so. But such power will inevitably end up being used in circumstances never envisioned by the gun grabbers… and often in the hands of someone they hoped would never hold the office of President such as a third member of the Bush regime.
The Bill of Rights isn’t optional
You can’t have a half-way Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights either means what it says and strictly limits the reach of the federal government, or it means nothing and all the individual rights and liberties enumerated in the Bill of Rights are null and void.
Those include the right to exercise whatever religion you choose and not have the state mandate what church you must attend; the right to speak your mind and even criticize the government without fear of being prosecuted for your opinions; the right to due process and a trial of your peers if charged with a crime; and the right to be safe in your person and effects (your home) without being subjected to illegal searches and seizures.
If the Second Amendment is nullified, then so isyour right to remain silent. Without the Fifth Amendment, the government can (and will) torture you until you “admit guilt” for whatever crimes they claim you have committed. This is already being planned for Aurora Colorado shooter James Holmes, who prosecutors now say will be subjected to injections of a “truth serum” so that he will confess to his crimes.
Folks, there is no such thing as a truth serum. It’s a science fiction fantasy. What Holmes is being subjected to is torture until he “confesses” to the crime. This is precisely what awaits all Americans if the government is not held to the limits of the Bill of Rights.
If the Second Amendment goes, the First Amendment will soon follow
Once the dismantling of the Bill of Rights is tolerated, there will be no stopping the government’s planned destruction of all its provisions, including the First Amendment. With freedom of speech destroyed, all websites, blogs and online videos will be deleted or shut down unless they are approved by the government. All art must be government approved before being published or publicly displayed (First Amendment). Anyone charged with a crime can be held indefinitely, without charge, while the government waits for them to “rot in prison” for the rest of their lives (Sixth Amendment).
Gun control advocates are, almost by definition, ignorant of history. They foolishly believe that the more power government is granted, the more compassionate, fair and just that government will behave. History has shown exactly the opposite: power corrupts, and when power is centralized in the hands of the few, it is almost always exploited in a manner that brings great harm to the People.
America’s founders understood this, which is why the Bill of Rights was written and ratified. Power must necessarily be distributed (decentralized) for freedom to flourish, and the primary purpose of the Bill of Rights was to enumerate lines in the sand that the government cannot cross.
Those who are arguing for gun restrictions today are hopeless fools who seem oblivious to the tyranny they are bringing down upon themselves. In order to achieve one limited political goal, they will surrenderall rights and freedoms to a government that will then recognize no limits whatsoever to its power. When gun control laws pass, they think they are “winning,” but what they’re actually doing is constructingunintentional prisons that will enslave their children and grandchildren.
Fortunately, many of us do understand history, and we will not allow the ignorant masses to destroy our fundamental rights and freedoms. We will fight these efforts with every means available, beginning with information and judicial strategies, but progressing to fighting enemies of America with physical force if necessary to defend the Republic.
Curiously, every U.S. Senator, Congressperson, President, police officer, district attorney and other “official” takes a sworn oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Yet in their actions, many of these people prove that they are themselves the very enemies cited in that oath of office. It is the job of the People to force our representatives to keep their oaths of office, first at the ballot box if effective, but then using incrementally more forceful means as necessary to keep government in check. The People are the commanders of their government, but if they refuse to remind government who is in charge, it is they who are soon commanded by government tyrants.
All laws that violate the Bill of Rights are null and void
Any law passed by either state government or the federal government is immediately null and void if it violates the Bill of Rights. This is why the U.S. Supreme Court declared in its landmark 1803 decision ofMarbury vs. Madison:
“All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.”
But this truth does not require a Supreme Court to make it so… it is self-evident under common law. Thus, any member of government who attempts to enforce an unconstitutional law is acting in violation of civil rights and the legal protections guaranteed under the Bill of Rights. Importantly, no citizen is obliged to follow unlawful orders even if directed by an apparent “law enforcement” authority.
If a police officer, for example, tells you to “go murder that woman standing on the street corner,” you have no obligation to follow such an order because it describes a criminal act. Similarly, a police officer or lawmaker commanding you to surrender your rifle is also an unlawful request, and no citizen has any obligation to follow it.
This is even true if local laws have been passed that violate the Bill of Rights. For example, if the police chief of New York City says you must surrender your rifle because New York has passed a law criminalizing the possession of such a rifle, you are under no legitimate legal obligation to do so because such laws are unconstitutional and illegal. That doesn’t mean you still won’t be arrested and thrown in prison while your case eventually makes its way to the Supreme Court, of course. Tyrants do not abide by laws unless they are forced to do so by the People… which is precisely the point of having a Second Amendment in the first place. No government can be trusted to remain honest and representative of the People unless the People possess the means of force to overthrow a corrupt, criminal government and replace it with legitimate, constitutional government.
Why gun grabbers are the true “anti-government” extremists
The mainstream media and the White House attempt to twist these ideas by branding anyone who disagrees with the government as an “anti-government” extremist. But that’s not the case at all: Most patriots aren’t anti-government at all. They are simply anti-corrupt government while being pro Constitutional government.
People who advocate gun control today are actually “anti-constitutional government” extremists because their ideas extremely diverge from the laws of the land (the Constitution and Bill of Rights). What could be more extreme than suggesting the People have no rights and that the government has total power to decide which rights in the Bill of Rights it wishes to recognize?
Gun grabbers are the true anti-government people because they are enemies of the legitimate and lawful government of America. Rather than constitutional government, they wish to see an illegitimate, unlawful government usurp power and run the country as a police state that respects no limits to its power. That’s the type of government desired by foolishly dangerous people like Rachel Maddow, Michael Moore, Michael Bloomberg, Joe Biden and others.
Imagine if Bloomberg were given the power to rewrite the Constitution…
Think about it: If people like Bloomberg had their way, there would be no Constitution, no Bill of Rights, no due process, no trial by jury and no free market choices whatsoever. The people would have no rights and freedoms, and the government would simply dictate to them what they could buy, eat, drink, think, speak, write and more. All forms of expression would be tightly regulated by the government, and anyone who was labeled “guilty” by the government would be immediately sentenced without trial or even a requirement of any evidence being presented.
This is the world being created by gun control advocates. Yet, in the end, they owe gun owners a huge debt because it is gun owners who will halt the march of tyranny in America. We will protect the rights and liberties of all Americans — including those who are seeking to take away our rights. The purpose of the Second Amendment has always been to protect the integrity of all the other amendments, including the First. The only reason people like Jim Carrey can attack gun rights in America is because the Second Amendment has put enough guns in the hands of enough Americans to dissuade the government from destroying the First Amendment.
Finally, I know there are a few readers, mostly younger people, who cannot imagine government ever becoming “evil” or “tyrannical,” and they think this talk of the Second Amendment being needed to protect the rights and freedoms of Americans sounds outlandish. To those people I say you are uninformed. You are ignorant of history, and you would be wise to learn history now, lest you inadvertently become part of it in the very near future.

Mike Martinez, the current Place 2 Austin City Council member who may become the next mayor, has publicly demonstrated his contempt for the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights.
In the video below, he promises to make gun confiscation – the ultimate and invariable result of registering and outlawing guns – a reality in Austin.
Emboldened by their authoritarian leaders in Washington and the White House, Democrats all over the country are coming out to denounce the right of Americans to own firearms.
Now that Mr. Martinez has shown his true colors and has proudly announced he is an avowed enemy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, Austinites need to make sure his plan to rob citizens of their birthright is not realized.
Mike Martinez needs to be run out of office. Austin needs to make sure he never sits in the Mayor’s Office on 4th Avenue.
Government increases “onerous activity” to confiscate legal firearms.
April 9, 2013
The New York State Police are suspending the handgun permits of people in the state who are prescribed anti-anxiety medication, according toJim Tresmond of the Tresmond Law Firm in Hamburg, New York. Tresmond Law specializes in firearm litigation.
“We are representing a client right now who is impacted by this onerous activity of the government,” Tresmond told WBEN, a news talk radio station in Buffalo, New York.
“We were flummoxed by this whole matter,” the attorney said. “The HIPPA act is supposed to prevent this kind of thing from happening. It’s a gross invasion of our privacy rights.”
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule establishes national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.
Tresmond said the New York State Police are responsible for taking action against legal firearms owners. “Based on information the county received from the New York State Police, they’ve suspended the permits. The State Police instigates the proceedings.”
Section 9.46 of the NY SAFE Act of 2013 authorizes therapists, doctors, nurses and social workers to report patients they determine may engage in conduct that may result in harm to self or others. If a determination is made that the person in question poses a threat, the provision permits the government to confiscate firearms. The provision is a direct violation of the Fourth Amendment and the legal standard of probable cause.
Experts said many mental health providers will likely ignore the provision.
NY SAFE was passed by the New York State Legislature on January 15, 2013, and was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo the same day.

Klein supports democide but says you are “paranoid” if you question government
April 9, 2013
In an appearance on MSNBC’s Chris Matthews show this past weekend, Time columnist Joe Klein declared that anyone who fears that their government may become oppressive is “anti-American”.
In an exchange centered around the Obama administration’s push for gun control, Klein took aim at gun owners, asking “…What do they need all those bullets for? I guess they just don’t feel very strong.”
Klein then stated that the US has become a “lot more wimpy” as a nation because “these gun advocates at the NRA want these semi-automatic weapons.”
When Matthews asked Klein to speak about a “cowboy culture”, Klein continued his verbal assault.
“Well, I think that that’s at the root of it, but there’s something else that’s going on now that is really, really dangerous, and it’s this festering sense that we need to have these semi-automatic weapons because the government in Washington is about to oppress us.” he said.
“And that is paranoia that these groups like the NRA, the Gun Owners of America — they feed this crap, and it really is anti-American.” Klein continued.
Watch the video:
Of course, any real American knows that the Constitution is predicated upon limitations to prevent the government becoming oppressive. Therefore, by Klein’s logic, the Founding Fathers were anti-American.
As Klein vilifies anyone who questions government overreach as paranoid and “anti-American”, he simultaneously supports unrestricted drone assassinations overseas by the same administration. Klein has even argued that killing innocent 4 year old children in Pakistan and Afghanistan is just fine, so long as it protects “4-year-olds here.” Glenn Greenwald has noted that this is the EXACT justification and mind set of every “terrorist” that the US has targeted.
As Klein lectures the few Americans that still watch MSNBC programming on how questioning government oppression is “paranoid crap”, he simultaneously supports the same government mass murdering children abroad using “a joystick in California.”
Klein is down with democide. It’s just fine with him. But if you question your government’s motives he’ll call you out as a dangerous kook.
The gall of the man is incredulous. If anyone is anti-American it is Klein himself.

No one in California has had their guns confiscated and the government destroys any record of a firearm background check within 24 hours, the Director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, Mark Glaze, told Erin Burnett’s CNN audience last night.
Arguing that fears of a background check system leading to a national gun registry are “outmoded,” Glaze stated, “But the truth is it’s illegal to create a national gun registry, nobody wants to create a national gun registry, and a lot of states already require background checks for all gun purchases and effectively keep lists of people who have passed those background checks and nobody in California has come to take anyone’s guns, in fact they had record gun sales this year.”
Glaze’s claim that no one in California has had their guns confiscated is a ridiculously bold lie and is easily refuted by simply reviewing recent mainstream articles written on the subject.
As Bloomberg writers Michael B. Marois and James Nash pointed out in two separate articles, Californiais actively confiscating firearms from citizens deemed “illegal.”
“California is the only state that tracks and disarms people with legally registered guns who have lost the right to own them, according to Attorney General Kamala Harris,” an article titled, “California Seizes Guns as Owners Lose Right to Keep Arms,” states.
Another article by the same two Bloomberg authors, titled, “California’s Gun Repo Men Have a Nerve-Racking Job,” also refutes Glaze’s assertion:
California’s been going after guns since 2007. Last year agents seized about 2,000 weapons, 117,000 rounds of ammunition, and 11,000 high-capacity magazines, according to state data. The list of those no longer eligible to keep weapons is compiled by matching files on almost 1 million gun owners with databases of new criminal records and involuntary mental health commitments. About 15 to 20 names are added each day, the attorney general’s office says.
But of course, facts don’t matter when you’re arguing for the sake of arguing, as Mark Glaze demonstrably was.
Later on in the segment, he went on to ludicrously claim that the government destroys any record of a firearm background check within 24 hours of purchase, another disingenuous statement easily negated by looking back at recent articles.
Last week, we reported on 50-year-old David A Schmecker, an honorably discharged disabled US Navy veteran having his guns and pistol permit confiscated after his primary care doctor called him and heard a message on his answering machine that “sounded peculiar.” Police were sent to his home and hauled him to a local hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
Last year, we reported that David Sarti, one of the “preppers” in the National Geographic show Doomsday Preppers, also had his guns confiscated after visiting his doctor complaining of chest pains. After Sarti refused to have tubes inserted to alleviate breathing difficulties, the doctor insinuated that he was suicidal and alerted authorities. Sarti was committed to a psychiatric ward, after which he was labelled “mentally defective” and put on an FBI “no-gun” list.
And just reported today, a New York man had $6,500 worth of his handguns and rifles confiscated after his son allegedly threatened to use a water pistol against bullies that taunted his friends at school.
If a gun registry of sorts wasn’t already in place, how else would so-called authorities pinpoint whether or not any of these people actually possessed firearms?
Fortunately, Second Amendment proponents had a strong defender of liberty in their corner to duke it out with the smug Constitutional traitors. Gun Owners of America Director Larry Pratt responded to Glaze’s pathetic arguments stating the government in fact warns gun dealers online that their data will become centralized:
“… I think it’s stunning that a government that is complicit in the murder of at least 400 Mexicans through the Fast and Furious program, designed to get guns into the hands of the Mexican cartel, is now hiding behind the parents of those at Newtown and telling that somehow they are the people to be trusted with our names and addresses. We’re not buying that. We don’t trust it.
“In fact the Justice Department tells dealers that when you go for a background check online… that data becomes the permanent data of the federal government.”
It’s clear anti-gun lobbyists intentionally misconstrue or deny actual facts, and are working just as hard to eviscerate the cornerstone of the US Constitution as Second Amendment advocates are to save it.
By continually waving the bloody shirts of the Newtown children, the Obama administration and cohorts have demonstrated they’re pulling out all the stops in their daring, gradual and piecemeal deconstruction of Americans’ gun rights.
During the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Police called for a city-wide door-to-door gun confiscation to be carried out by local police, U.S. Army National Guard soldiers, and Deputy U.S. Marshals. Weeks later, a U.S. District Court issued an order barring unconstitutional gun confiscation.
