Bill Gates Is Attacking The Second Amendment

Microsoft elitists are ganging up on our Second Amendment rights. They apparently have money to burn, and so they decide to donate millions, to foist a measure in Washington state that mandates “universal background checks.” Bill Gates and his wife are the latest anti-gun elitists, spending a million, pushing Initiative 594 which does just that.

This bill means that all transfers, even loaning a handgun to family, requires the mandatory DROS paperwork and a background check. Which stifles Second Amendment freedom. Mandatory background checks mean that gun owners get registration up front. Registration leads to confiscation. Because the only reason for registration of firearms is their confiscation. Otherwise it wouldn’t be important to gun prohibitionists.

From NRA-ILA:

As a result of an in-depth debate between the National Rifle Association and the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility (WAGR), the Washington Council of Police and Sheriffs (WACOPS) has joined the Washington State Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors Association (WSLEFIA) in opposing the 18-page gun control measure, Initiative 594, on the Washington ballot this fall.

CA: Gun Waiting Period Laws Ruled Unconstitutional

California’s 10 day waiting period was just ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge today. It’s looking like if you already own a gun bought recently in California, and you pass a background check, there is no grounds to make you wait 10 days. Thanks to the Plaintiffs Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs, as well as the Calguns Foundation and the Second Amendment Foundation.

NRA Addresses Anti-gun Michael Bloomberg with “Insult”

In the latest video by the NRA, Michael Bloomberg is the latest topic. Some in the media would call it, “getting personal,” but I would call it telling it like it is. The man is spending his wealth doing everything he can to destroy our Second Amendment. He must be addressed.

MD: Federal Judge Rules AR-15s “Dangerous and Unusual”

Once again, an anti-gun leaning judge makes a bad ruling, that causes harm to citizen gun owners. U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Blake has ruled that she doesn’t believe the most popular rifles in the nation are commonly used, and that so called assault weapons, “fall outside Second Amendment protection as dangerous and unusual arms,” which is as preposterous as it sounds.

“Upon review of all the parties’ evidence, the court seriously doubts that the banned assault long guns are commonly possessed for lawful purposes, [...]“

Who does the judge think she’s kidding? Thankfully you can bet the ruling, in Kolbe et al v. O’Malley et al, will be challenged.

LAPD Downplaying Violent Crime Statistics

In this story the Los Angeles Times, brings to light something that should make residents, very unhappy with their police handlers. The Los Angeles Police Department misclassified 1,200 violent crimes as minor offenses. Which is something to think about when mayors say “Our crime rates are at levels not seen since the 1950s.”

Victory in Palmer v. D.C., Ban On Carry Unconstitutional

This opinion was handed down today, Saturday, and what good news it is.

In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional.

NJ: On Chris Christie Vetoing The Magazine Ban

As you may have heard, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, vetoed a bill that would have banned ammunition magazines, that hold 10 or more rounds. Regardless of what you think of him politically, he deserves credit, for doing the right thing. Contrary to what the governors of Connecticut and Colorado did, Christie had the courage to stand up, and call the legislation what it really is.

In his statement the governor said that “This is the very embodiment of reform in name only,” when explaining his decision to veto. What Americans have been waiting to hear, from the mouths of their political leaders, yet such comments are seldom heard. Gun owners in less fortunate states, only wish they had leaders that would be of like mind, while standing up to the usual anti-gun cabal. The nation was watching at what turned out to be a positive, outspoken example in a governor, however unlikely it may seem.

He did it for political sake? If so, we should always hope, to be so lucky.

Ex MAIG Exec Says Gun Control Won’t Stop Mass Shootings

So here we have it. From the mouth of Mark Glaze, the former executive director of Michael Bloomberg’s, “Everytown For Gun Safety.” Now that he has stepped down from the organization, he readily admits that none of the MAIG anti-gun proposals, would stop crazies. It’s just that Michael Bloomberg and friends, never let a crisis go to waste, following high profile gun crimes.

So if the Bloomberg proposed, anti-gun measures won’t stop such crimes, why all the fuss? It’s very simple. Second Amendment advocates have been repeating it for a long while. Such political class elitists are concerned with pushing their political agenda no matter the cost. It has nothing to do with safety.

The most attention on gun control comes after mass shootings – just look at the post-Newtown push and the brief attention paid to the issue after the Memorial Day weekend shootings in Isla Vista, Calif. Yet virtually none of the solutions gun-control groups are pushing would have prevented any of the massacres that capture public attention.

SB 53: California Legislators Have No Shame

In light of recent high profile crimes, committed by a societal darling of the gun ban left, the calls for Second Amendment violations are so predictable. It’s even now predictable, that California state senators like Kevin de León are pushing, unconstitutional ammunition and gun owner registration mandates such as Senate Bill 53. No matter that his last ammunition registration scheme, AB 962, was struck down as unconstitutionally vague, by a California court. SB 53 is also co-authored by none other than indicted Senator Leland Yee. The man who was arrested by the FBI, and who is currently on trial for, corruption, as well as conspiracy to import and traffic in illegal firearms. No small deal. As well as it is, a revelation of total hypocrisy, among those who tout “firearm safety.”

While condemning our Second Amendment, it seems that such political creatures, whether they be breaking laws or writing bad ones, believe they are above being held to account. You may be asking yourself, how Kevin de León, can really believe pushing such overbearing unconstitutional mandates is a good idea. Over at dictionary.com, the word shame is defined as “the painful feeling arising from the consciousness of something dishonorable, improper, ridiculous, etc., done by oneself or another: She was overcome with shame.” So it appears that the “ends justify the means” philosophy, when it comes to the political ideology and personal gain of such leftists, is more important to them than a modicum of scruples.
