Today, Diane Feinstein introduced a Bill that would Ban the Sale, Manufacture, Importation or Transfer of more than 157 different firearms, many of which are used for legitimate sporting purposes and competitive events....but make politicians exempt from it!
"Mrs. Feinstein's measure would exempt more than 2,200 types of hunting and sporting rifles; guns manually operated by bolt, pump, lever or slide action; and weapons used by government officials (read: politicans), law enforcement and retired law enforcement personnel." These people have some nerve...Disarm the honest citizens and keep themselves safe. When will American wake up and say ENOUGH is ENOUGH?!?!
Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to begin his propaganda tour across the United States to sell the American people the poison fruit.
Here is a brief summary what this ban would require:
Ban any magazine with a capacity of more than 10 rounds
Require that any rifle or magazine owned by law abiding citizens be engraved with the date of manufacture. (impossible to ascertain in many cases)
Ban various types of firearm accessories.
Ban sporting semi-automatic shotguns that contains any of the following characteristics: Folding or telescoping stock, pistol grip, fixed magazine of more than 5 round capacity or a forward mounted grip.
Ban any Rifle or Handgun with a fixed magazine capable of holding more than 10 rounds.
Requires an undefined, so called "Safe Storage" requirement for gun owners.
The Bill would ensure that no rifle, handgun or shotgun contained within can be handed down to the next generation of your family, effectively ensuring that future generations do not have the ability to adequately defend themselves or their families during their times of greatest need.
The Second Amendment was not designed to protect "Duck Hunters," as Sen Feinstein suggested in her presentation on Capitol Hill. I for one don't need politicians, judges or attorneys to tell me what the 2nd Amendment means. The best way to understand the Second Amendment is to know what the FOUNDING FATHERS SAID and here are some DIRECT QUOTES:
Quotes on the Second Amendment
The Founding Fathers on the Second Amendment"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
Co-author of the Second Amendment
during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788
"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …"
Richard Henry Lee
writing in Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic, Letter XVIII, May, 1788.
"The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full posession of them."
Elliot's Debates, vol. 3 "The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution."
"… the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms"
Philadelphia Federal Gazette
June 18, 1789, Pg. 2, Col. 2
Article on the Bill of Rights
"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; …"
quoted in the Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789, "Propositions submitted to the Convention of this State"
The Founding Fathers on Arms"Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
First President of the United States
"The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside … Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."
"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them."
Richard Henry Lee
American Statesman, 1788
"The great object is that every man be armed." and "Everyone who is able may have a gun."
"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"
"Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not."
Third President of the United States
"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … "
letter to Justice John Cartwright, June 5, 1824. ME 16:45.
"The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed."
The Federalist Papers at 184-8
The Founding Fathers on Maintaining Freedom"The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution."
Third President of the United States
"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. "
"The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion."
British Statesman, 1784
"What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms."
to James Madison
"They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
Here's what ONE BRAVE PATRIOT HAD TO SAY ON THIS ISSUE.....
God Bless Sheriff Tim Mueller and other Patriots like him! He has my deepest respect. This land is too full of mealy mouthed politicians and politically correct liberals who don't have the guts or the backbone to stand up and FIGHT for what is RIGHT in America. These are the same people who have armed guards to protect them, but expect you to call 911 when seconds count and the Police are only minutes or hours away.
Remember what Edmund Burke Said, "The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion" and finally, the words of Benjamin Franklin, "They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety."
"When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." Thomas Jefferson
The potential for tyranny exists today just as much as it did hundreds of years ago. The nature of man has not changed and never will! Need an example? Germany, China, Italy, Soviet Union, Cambodia, Japan, Uganda, Spain and more than 6 Million Jews.
The Second Amendment underpins and GUARANTEES ALL OTHER CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.
Make no Mistake - The real goal of the left is to DISARM the American People. There are dozens of Gun Control Bills currently being drafted by traitorous politicians. Many are stating this is a good "FIRST STEP." The question then begs, "What is their next step"?..........!
Do you think this offers any indication?
"Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It doesn't matter if you have to distort the facts or even lie. Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed."
Chairman, Handgun Control Inc, to Senator Howard Metzenbaum
The National Educator, January 1994, Page 3.
"If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things." .... "This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"
Chancellor, Germany, 1933
Let's look at what happened when Australia banned all firearms, the liberal utopia...
I for one took an Oath to Support and Defend the Constitution of the United States and that Oath had no expiration date. I wore this uniform for far too many years to sit back and watch our Liberty be taken from us. The American People need to wake up before it's too late! Never quit, Never Surrender and stand up for AMERICAN LIBERTY and FREEDOM.
OR THIS WILL BE THE END RESULT.........
|One Nation, without God, With Liberty and Justice for no one|
"The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution."
Third President of the United States
What part of "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED IS UNCLEAR"?
