Yesterday in Denver, Colorado lawmakers heard seven bills in separate House and Senate committees dealing with the state’s hastily-passed gun control measures in 2013, with predictably-split receptions along party lines, according to the Denver Post.

In neighboring Wyoming, legislators are considering a concealed carry reform measure that would allow concealed firearms to be carried in schools, bars and government meetings, plus the University of Wyoming campus in Laramie. The editorial board of the Wyoming Tribune Eagle doesn’t care for that at all, while the National Rifle Association is encouraging members to support the measure.

Second Amendment advocates are fighting to overturn Initiative 594 in Washington State. The 18-page gun control measure, passed by 59 percent of the people who voted in November, is the target of legislation and a federal lawsuit filed by the Second Amendment Foundation.

  1. This just ticks me off. Can anyone get it straight? This battle is NOT about guns, education, food, etc.

    It is about if we give up our LEGITIMATE government to TRAITORS and foreign enemies of our nation.

    For those of you who were progressively schooled, OUR government IS the US Constitution. That document put into writing what type of government we will have, Constitutional Republic. what the duties are of that government. It was put in writing in that document so that those who serve would have a place to see exactly what they are ALLOWED TO DO, AND WHAT THEY ARE FORBIDDEN TO DO. It also requires a personal Oath of each to SUPPORT and DEFEND it; or from presidents – if we ever elect one – to PRESERVE, PROTECT, and DEFEND the US Constitution

    Everything that was NOT listed in either the US Constitution, or in a state Constitution belongs under the decisions of the people themselves – no matter how many “laws” those scum keep adding.
    (The reason they add so many laws every day is because those who are elected are NOT doing their job as assigned but are letting agencies do them. Since they are NOT allowed to give their duties to ANYONE else – they are allowed to have assistance in doing them, but THEY must do them – they broke the contract they are under and the Oath – at least one felony and perjury.)

    (Oh, and all agencies ONLY have the power of the branch it is under. So those agencies under the executive branch may ONLY execute the laws that the legislative branch create; and then the judicial branch decides guilt or innocence of every crime, regulation or law, or??. No one else, not the IRS, not the BLM, not the FDA, etc. Get the picture?)

    It defines and is the blueprint for our governments; breaking it up into states and general (federal), with the *people themselves being the LAST word on everything, including judges.

    Within each government – state and federal; they are broken up into different branches with duties assigned to each branch and EVERY person and agency within that branch can ONLY LAWFULLY do the duties assigned to that branch under the auspices of those the people elect (election fraud, another article .. ahh.. comment 🙂 )

    It is the CONTRACT and LAW that they work under. In the federal government they are held to one Constitution. In state governments they are held to two (2) Constitution’s – the US Constitution and the state Constitution.

    We do NOT need anymore laws, we need to ENFORCE THE US CONSTITUTION.
    We need to stop Election Fraud, get rid of machine voting, make each and EVERY count done in front of, but safe from the people; with multiple LIVE videos on all sides streaming.

    This is not about guns, per se, though they do not want them because democide is always easier with an unarmed populace – the old “shooting fish in a barrel” idea; no where to run and no where to hide.

    Any that is actually still US military instead of the UN military needs to NOT go to those unlawful acts of aggression because they ARE accountable for their actions under our LEGITIMATE government and laws. Stop it, our nation is at stake and WE, America and her people NEED YOU here!!! Train us and we will assist you in our nations defense.

    Same for you LE”s. Standing by and NOT stopping a cop committing a crimes is aiding and abetting – stop it! Our nation is at stake. Stop it. America needs you to defend HER and her people now. You are in the Militia’s shoes, you have OUR duties, train us and we will assist you in our nations defense.

    But keep “following orders” and “just doing your job” and if America is ended, if those of us who do not believe in one group of people conquering and running the world do not defend this nation well enough, if God has decided that a lot of us are too corrupt to save, Go to a mirror and pat yourself on the back repeating the words “I am a traitor and I assisted in bringing the USA down from within. (yeah, same old crime, new name (NWO, or one world government /shakes head sadly)

    And if we do survive this YOU will be arrested and tried as a TRAITOR TO THE USA. Make a choice, and make it KNOWING what you are deciding – do NOT lie to yourself.

    Attorneys, lawyers, judges – etc; PAY ATTENTION. In this land, under our legitimate government the US Constitution is the supreme LAW that all laws, regulations treaties, etc MUST be In Pursuance thereof” it. Each state Constitution is the HIGHEST LAW of that state Except where it conflicts with the US Constitution. Do not act as if it is not there, as if America already died, because if she is dead and we are “ghosts” that are still fighting, YOU NO LONGER HAVE THAT POSITION. You only have it under the US Constitution. When you ignore that those listed above are true, YOU assist in the destruction of our nation from within. Think about it. What are they trying to do? Destroy our nation, our way of government. What IS our government? See why now? You ignore it, do not enforce it, do not use it then they have succeeded in destroying it in the courts, in your professions it is already gone.

    So STOP IT!! YOU are needed by your country now, stand tall, and do as you are REQUIRED to do under OUR laws in OUR nation.

    God Bless All! Molon Labe! Stay Safe!!

    If there were never intended to be action to defend the Constitution from those who are domestically attempting to destroy its power and authority, why would each Oath require it of those who take the Oaths?

    *Benjamin Franklin: “Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us by the laws of God and nature.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their power; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The opinions of men are not the object of civil government, nor under its jurisdiction.”

    James Madison, Federalist Paper #46: “… the ultimate authority … resides in the people alone”

    Thomas Jefferson to Wilson Nicholas, 1803: “Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction.”

    James Madison: “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “Laws are made for men of ordinary understanding and should, therefore, be construed by the ordinary rules of common sense. Their meaning is not to be sought for in metaphysical subtleties which may make anything mean everything or nothing at pleasure.”

    Thomas Paine: “An Avidity to punish is always dangerous to liberty. It leads men to stretch, to misinterpret, and to misapply even the best of laws. He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.”

    George Washington: The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people.

    Thomas Jefferson:“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, And if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The most effectual means of preventing [the perversion of power into tyranny are] to illuminate, as far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more especially to give them knowledge of those facts which history exhibits, that possessed thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be enabled to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their natural powers to defeat its purposes.”

    Thomas Jefferson (as a US President) did not deny to the “General Government” its “whole constitutional vigor (which he showed later when making the Louisiana Purchase). He avowed a federalism affirming “State governments in all their rights” as a shield against “antirepublican tendencies” and the federal government “in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad.”

    James Madison: “The ultimate authority resides in the people, and that if the federal government got too powerful and overstepped its authority, then the people would develop plans of resistance and resort to arms.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That “all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people.”To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible of any definition.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “When all government, in little as in great things, shall be drawn to Washington as the Center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another and will become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated.”

    James Madison: If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.”

    Patrick Henry: “It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”

    No one whatever the position they occupy is above our laws here in America;
    James Madison, Federalist 57, wrote that Congress “can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “We are a Republican Government. Real liberty is never found in despotism or in the extremes of Democracy.”

    James Madison, Federalist No. 14: “In the first place, it is to be remembered, that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any”.

    James Madison, Federalist 45: “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several states will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “Every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

    James Madison, Federalist 46: “The Foederal and State Governments are in fact but different agents and trustees of the people, instituted with different powers, and designated for different purposes… They must be told that the ultimate authority, wherever the derivative may be found, resides in the people alone; and that it will not depend merely on the comparative ambition or address of the different governments, whether either, or which of them, will be able to enlarge its sphere of jurisdiction at the expence of the other. Truth no less than decency requires, that the event in every case, should be supposed to depend on the sentiments and sanction of their common constituents.”

    James Madison, Federalist 39: “Each State, in ratifying the Constitution, is considered as a sovereign body, independent of all others, and only to be bound by its own voluntary act. In this relation, then, the new Constitution will, if established, be a FEDERAL, and not a NATIONAL constitution.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “When a man assumes a public trust, he should consider himself public property.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.”

    Thomas Jefferson: “Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “Until the people have, by some solemn and authoritative act, annulled or changed the established form, it is binding upon themselves collectively, as well as individually; and no presumption, or even knowledge, of their sentiments, can warrant their representatives in a departure from it, prior to such an act.”

    This government is of the people, for the people, and by the people.. It is time we acted like it.

    Sorry, too long again


  2. It is really becoming a pain in the neck living in such a divided country. I know it seems logistically impossible, but why don’t we just divide the country at the Mississippi River and the Progressives take one side and the Conservatives the other. Just dreaming, but…………

  3. I love the history and concept of the founding of our country. It was a bold and glorious experiment. We fought a bloody eight year revolution and established a Minarchist government (that’s minimal government for those who don’t know). The experiment has run its course and refined the words of Thomas Paine (?) from (paraphrasing): government is AT BEST a neccessary evil, at worse an intolerable one, to: government is an UNNECCESSARY EVIL.
    We must evolve and take the red pill of reality. Government is an ancient concept. Capitalism, however is relatively new to mankind. Capitalism or free markets is a social system that can take care of all our needs and replace governments. Sounds radical I know, it did to me at first. We must overcome our lifetime of indoctrination by the state and replace it with a system of maximum freedom and prosperity. Free markets in place of governments. Keep an open mind and look into it. We are controlled through economic manipulation and intentional ignorance of fundamental economics, political philosophy and history. and are good starting points. It is called Anarcho-Capitalism. Don’t let the words scare you. CHARGE !!!!!
