It’s a breath of fresh air, to read California Assemblyman Brian Jones, tell the truth about the Second Amendment so factually and eloquently. The right to keep and bear arms has been so distorted by overzealous gun prohibitionists, and hard leftists in California government, that it’s easy to glare over the good people that inhabit the California legislature. Assemblyman Jones explains away the revisionist history that’s been foisted on us.
Many facts could actually lend some reason to the debate. For example, the National Safety Council reports that firearms are used for personal defense 2.5 million times a year — which equates to a whopping 6,850 times a day. This means that each year, firearms are used 80 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives, and as many as 200,000 women use a gun every year to defend themselves against sexual abuse.
Not surprisingly, those that attack the Second Amendment, never want to discuss how firearms benefit our society.
You would think the gun prohibition crowd in California, would be running out of ideas, to dismantle the Second Amendment. They’ve almost tried everything. From attempts to turn just about all magazine fed self loading rifles, into classified illegal “assault weapons,” that are already banned. To actually implementing “micro-stamping” technology that doesn’t exist for all new handguns sold. The very reason that there will seldom be, any new handguns added to California’s roster of approved “not unsafe” handguns, allowed for sale. Such is the level of contempt that such political creatures have for the U.S. Constitution.
And today we have California State Senator Kevin de León, attempting to stop criminals dead in their tracks, via more useless and fraudulent methods in disguise as “gun safety.” By writing legislation, intended to prevent Americans from building firearms from scratch, without government intrusion and that’s not required by federal law. If SB 808 does eventually become law, all home built firearms, would fall under the registration scheme of California where such property would be serialized. Which comes in handy when government wants to confiscate.
Today the Obama administration, created executive orders allowing states to bypass HIPPA(The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) privacy laws, put in play by Congress. While broadening the criteria used to label patients as involuntary committed in order to deny the Second Amendment. With Obama’s magical political powers, you’re probably asking yourself, why we even need a U.S. Congress?

It looks like the shooter at Arapahoe High School, had planned a large scale attack, that was foiled by an armed school officer. Just imagine the carnage if she was never present. The attack lasted all of 80 seconds, and was ended when this soulless attacker committed suicide, after being cornered like the rat that he was. Guns save lives.
You may have heard about James O’Keefe, the man that brought ACORN down, with his revealing undercover videos. Well, he’s done it again, in regard to the so called Affordable Care Act. In his latest as described by John Fund at National Review Online, he visits Enroll America, “a nationwide nonprofit group that has launched a multi-state grassroots campaign to help millions of Americans sign up for health coverage.”
What’s interesting is that Enroll America is not working alone. They appear to be working hand in hand with Battleground Texas, a political organization, that’s working to change the political landscape of Texas. We all know how the Obama administration feels about the Second Amendment.
Adrian Bell, the regional field director for Battleground Texas, proudly notes the group was “started by President Obama’s national field director” and is “dedicated to turning Texas blue.”
This is yet another glaring example, that points to one of the worst presidential administrations, this nation has ever seen. Apparently, if you’re an American that exhibits normal behavior, such as owning or transporting a few firearms, the government should have their eye on you. Because it’s potential evidence of “terrorist activity.” Nice. John R. Lott is right to ask: Is this just the Obama administration’s effort to make gun ownership difficult and costly?
In response to Assemblyman Kevin de León’s request, to have his colleagues put up the names of “individuals who have fallen victim to guns” on their doors, Assemblyman Brian Jones (R-Santee) exposes a classic gun prohibition attempt to play on emotions. He’s taking a look at the facts.
“This list only tells part of the story,” Jones says. The “victims” include at least one cop killer, a murder suspect, and victims killed by police during a commission of a crime. It also includes gang related killings, too – as well as suicides.”
This comes as numerous bills restricting law-abiding citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights move through the Legislature or are on Governor Brown’s desk awaiting either a veto or signature.
Assemblyman Jones also finds it interesting that there are 149 “unknown” victims. “This is not an honest way to have a debate on the issue of guns. It capitalizes on emotion rather than the facts – if we are going to have a debate on the issue of gun violence, let it be an honest debate – not one using manipulation.”
This is another pathetic attempt, by Kevin de León, to blame inanimate objects so that he can more easily regulate our Second Amendment away. The very reason citizens need to pay close attention to de León’s future political career. Assemblyman Jones has done a good job countering the usual propaganda.

“A closer look at gun deaths in California.”
Despite being outspent by left of center anti-gun activists such as Michael Bloomberg, the effort in Colorado to recall State Sen. Angela Giron and Senate President John Morse, was a resounding success. Such is the case when you go against the wishes of American constituents and support gun control. Though after clearly being defeated, Senator Giron had the nerve to claim voter suppression, when that couldn’t be further from the truth. When she was likely voted out by members of her own party.
Remember this story? This is the same State Senator Angela Giron, who had supporters go out to the homes of those who signed recall petitions against her, and attempted to have them rescind their votes. How would you like political opposition, showing up to your front door, after you sign a recall petition? Talk about voter suppression.
While canvassing a neighborhood in Pueblo, Colorado for Pueblo United For Angela, a volunteer was arrested over the weekend on a failure to appear warrant which may be related to a domestic violence charge. Elric Franco went door-to-door on the 1600 block of Bunker Hill located on Pueblo’s east side and asked residents who had signed the petition to recall Colorado State Senator Giron to rescind their signatures.
Tonight’s final results of the recall elections, in Colorado, is big news. State Senate President John Morse, and Senator Angela Giron, were both defeated. What are the implications for the future? This is a solid loss for gun prohibitionists with big Bloomberg money, as Americans prove, they aren’t going to take it. You can bet this is a sure sign, that anti-gun political overreach, isn’t going to fare well for gun grabbers come the 2014 elections.
