  • Clinton’s platform goes against gun rights

    10/25/2016 1:53:27 AM PDT · by Innovative · 24 replies
    Washington Times ^ | Oct. 24, 2016 | Ben Wolfgang -
    Hillary Clinton repeatedly has said she’s not here “to take your guns away,” but her campaign platform would go a long way toward stopping Americans from being able to buy some of the most popular firearms on the market. The former first lady is walking a fine line on guns as she tries to peel away independents and some Republicans from Donald Trump while also painting herself as a gun control champion. On the campaign trail Mrs. Clinton frequently calls for new gun safety measures as she reassures law-abiding Americans their firearms won’t be targeted under her would-be administration. On...

    The tens of thousands of e-mails released by WikiLeaks over the last month have removed all doubts, if any still existed, that Hillary Clinton and her campaign will go to any lengths to erase the Second Amendment's protection of the right of individual citizens to keep and bear firearms. That includes, but is not limited to, using executive orders to undermine the Second Amendment. One e-mail in particular showed how closely Clinton’s campaign staff works with a compliant media and what Clinton intends to do if she is elected president. Wrote a Clinon staffer in the e-mail: Circling back around...
  • Wikileaks: Hillary Clinton Had Gun Control Supporters Planted In Town Hall Audience

    One of the emails contained in the Wikileaks’ Podesta email release shows that Hillary Clinton had gun control supporters planted in a town hall audience in Manchester, New Hampshire. The town hall occurred on October 5, 2015; just four days after a man opened fire on Umpqua Community College campus in Oregon. In the email thread, dated October 4, 2015, a “speech draft” was passed around “on behalf of Megan Rooney.” The email contained “talking points” for Clinton to use to discuss guns in Manchester.

    I guarantee you Hillary Clinton will continue Obama's legacy All rights come from God. We are born with them. They are unalienable, which means no power on Earth can take them away. They stay with us for life. All rights are individual, and they are absolute within the context of the right. If rights are not absolute, then they aren’t a right at all. If one aspect of a right can be shed, then so can the whole right. If a right can be “interpreted,” then it can be interpreted out of existence. One right that is universal and a...

    Image from The Tucson City Council has become a notorious scofflaw for ignoring state law that involves firearms. Arizona has a state preemption law, to prevent a confusing patchwork of local laws, which could easily entrap innocent people who exercise their Second Amendment rights.  The Tucson City Council has ignored the law. Arizona also requires that valuable firearms that come into the possession of the police must be sold to federal firearms dealers, so that the value will be used for the public good.  Tucson has been accused of destroying these valuable items, presumably to make some sort...

    One of the first clashes of the debate came over the Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, the case that said the Second Amendment protected an individual’s right to own a firearm for self-protection. Donald Trump said Hillary Clinton was “extremely upset, extremely angry” about the decision, which struck down Washington’s restrictive gun law making it almost impossible for residents to possess handguns. The Supreme Court justices that Clinton would appoint would turn the Second Amendment into a “very, very small replica of what it is now.”

    Mexico had a flourishing, legal, gun culture until 1972, when the Mexican government made private, legal, ownership of guns extremely difficult and expensive.  The change in law was meant to disarm the political opposition and keep the existing power structure in place.  The power structure has remained in place, but it has not flourished.  Much of Mexico is contested ground, with narco-cartels that are not aligned with the Mexican government in armed conflict with the Government and its cartel allies.  Private citizens are caught in the crossfire, abused by both sides, and denied the legal ability to arm themselves....

(Assistant US Attorney Ethan) Knight said guns were brought to "keep the federal government away," right? "No," Bundy responded.

    Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Or attempt to legislate away constitutional rights. Missouri has become at least the 11th state -- and the fourth this year -- to approve a “constitutional carry” law. That means no permit is required to openly carry or carry a concealed firearm in the Show Me State. The law goes into effect Jan. 1. Three cheers and all that? Perhaps, to some. But whether the law actually was needed is debatable. And some of its provisions are, frankly, anathema to liberty. After all, the Missouri Constitution stipulates:...

    Trump's poll surge is about to get tested.

The question is, however, after months of incredible outrage directed at Trump, how much damage can the MSM do to the Donald? The MSM thought that Donald Trump had a bad Friday, not as bad as face-planting into the Scooby van, but bad.

  • Popcorn: The New York Times Had A Total Meltdown Over Missouri Constitutional Carry Law

    It’s now law. In Missouri, you no longer need a license to carry a firearm in public. They’re the 12th state to adopt such a law known as constitutional carry; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) represents a state with such a law. To those who love freedom and the Second Amendment, it’s a great day for the expansion of constitutional rights. For anti-gun liberals, it’s a day for hysterics, which wasperfectly captured by the editorial board of The New York Times: The measure has drawn no great national attention, but it certainly provides further evidence that gun safety cannot be...

    Seizing on Donald Trump’s suggestion that Hillary Clinton’s bodyguards should disarm and “let’s see what happens to her,” CNN went into full Clinton-campaign mode this morning. Leading the charge was Christi Paul, whom CNN curiously bills as an “anchor” rather than the Clinton surrogate she appears to be. Said Paul to Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord: “let’s say Joe Schmoe out in the audience said something like that. That would be seen, most likely, as a threat of some sort, and he would be hauled away. How is it that Donald Trump gets away with it?“ View the video here.

    Donald Trump told supporters at a rally in Miami on Friday that Hillary Clinton’s Secret Service detail should have their firearms taken away, then added — “Let’s see what happens to her.” Speaking about the Second Amendment, he suggested that Clinton wanted to overturn the right to bear arms. “I think her bodyguards should drop all weapons. They should disarm immediately,” Trump told the crowd. “Take their guns away, she doesn’t want guns. Take their — and let’s see what happens to her. Take their guns away.”

Many citizens are concerned about efforts to infringe upon the rights delineated in the Bill of Rights to the United States Constitution. As a constitutional lawyer who spent much of my career defending the fundamental Rights to Life and Religious Freedom, I share their concern. However, one of those Rights is found in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which reads "A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."......
