Bipartisan Attacks on the Second Amendment

Postby Tesser » Wed Mar 13, 2019 5:37 am

Nothing new if you follow along, but... Recent article from a man I have deep respect for and mostly agree with. Although his time has come and gone I still have great hope for his son Senator Rand Paul.

My years in Congress taught me that few politicians can be counted on to protect our liberties. Most politicians must be pressured to stand up for freedom by informed and involved pro-liberty citizens That is why those of us who understand the benefits of liberty must remain vigilant against any attempt to erode respect for our rights, especially the right to defend ourselves against private crime and public tyranny.

To reiterate:
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”
― Jeff Cooper


"The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt."
John Philpot Curran
Liberty is the soul's right to breathe, and when it cannot take a long breath, laws are girdled too tight.

To bolster this topic:
[url]
It’s been said quite often that Republicans are the “Stupid Party.”

Well, the party of stupid has struck again, and “Exhibit A” is the Republican Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.

Based on what Graham is doing, one would think he’s planning to forfeit control of the Senate to the Democrats and to lose the White House in 2020. Because he is holding a hearing to promote the nastiest form of Bloomberg-sponsored gun control.
As it turns out, Graham and his new “best buddy,” anti-gun zealot Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), are scheduling a hearing on Gun Confiscation Orders — sugar-coated as “red-flag laws” — on March 26 of this month.[/url]

"Red flag laws" going to the Senate, unabated.
“A free people claim their rights, as derived from the laws of nature, and not as the gift of their chief magistrate.”
-Thomas Jefferson, 1774

Tweed Ring: "...we should have all done more to elected Republicans..." Agreed

How unique

Things in Political World rarely occur by happenstance.

The Graham/hard leftist bill hearing is March 26th...the effect date for the bumpstock ban
Acquisitions thus far:

Slingshot
Butter knife
Soda straw and peas
Sharpened pencil
Newspaper roll
water balloon (diversionary)

Yeah, I'm that good
