Commonly used and unregulated internet discussions and videos about guns and ammo could be closed down under rules proposed by the State Department, amounting to a “gag order on firearm-related speech,” the National Rifle Association is warning.

In updating regulations governing international arms sales, State is demanding that anyone who puts technical details about arms and ammo on the web first get the OK from the federal government — or face a fine of up to $1 million and 20 years in jail.

According to the NRA, that would include blogs and web forums discussing technical details of common guns and ammunition, the type of info gun owners and ammo reloaders trade all the time.

“Gunsmiths, manufacturers, reloaders, and do-it-yourselfers could all find themselves muzzled under the rule and unable to distribute or obtain the information they rely on to conduct these activities,” said the NRA in a blog posting.

“This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register, is as much an affront to the First Amendment as it is to the Second,” warned the NRA’s lobbying shop. “Your action is urgently needed to ensure that online blogs, videos, and web forums devoted to the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition do not become subject to prior review by State Department bureaucrats before they can be published,” it added.

At issue is the internet. State is updating International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), which implement the federal Arms Export Control Act (AECA). The rules govern everything from guns to strategic bombers.

The NRA said that the rules predate the internet, and now the federal government wants to regulate technical arms discussions on on the internationally available web.

  1. “In updating regulations governing international arms sales, State is demanding that anyone who puts technical details about arms and ammo on the web first get the OK from the federal government — or face a fine of up to $1 million and 20 years in jail… NRA’s lobbying shop. “Your action is urgently needed to…”

    Let’s see what the US Constitution says is under the jurisdiction of those who serve within the general (federal) government. Isn’t it cool that we have it in writing?

    Thomas Jefferson: “Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution.”

    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.”

    James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434: “The right of the people to keep and bear… arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country…”

    According to the contract that all who serve wtihin our governments – state and general (federal) are under, and additionally the supreme LAW – US Constitution – of this land that all laws, regulations, etc MUST be in Pursuance thereof the only crimes assigned to the general (federal) government in the US Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations.

    What is even more enlighting is that the Bill of Rights is a list of “forbiddens” and “can only do under specific put-into-writing” circumstances for those who serve within our governments so that they cannot claim that they forgot it is NOT under their jurisdiction – state and general (federal).

    Preamble to the Bill of Rights makes that VERY clear when it says: “… having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order TO PREVENT MISCONSTRUCTION OR ABUSE OF ITS POWERS, that FURTHER declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added (meaning the US Constitution also has a lot of things forbidden to those who serve within it, and that these are ADDDITIONAL additions to the list): And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”

    Constitution of the United States of America, Second Amendment: “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”

    “Shall not be infringed” means that no one that serves within our governments – state and general (federal) has any Lawful authority over any part of the people and carrying arms – concealed or not. Over Free Speech, etc.

    So they can write whatever they want, and it is *TREASON against the American people, and when force is used to implement that “color of law” it makes those doing so into *Traitors to the American people, and **Terrorists, plus into ***criminals for a bunch of other crimes that they took a lawfully binding Oath to NOT do. Those that serve within our governments were not only NOT given that authority, but they are actually forbidden it in the Bill of Rights and other places within the US Constitution.

    Abraham Lincoln: “We, the people, are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts – not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution”

    I agree here with Abe, it is past time to remove, arrest, and prosecute the domestic enemeis and the traitors who are serving within our governments at ALL levels. ALL those who serve within our governments – even the groundskeepers – are REQUIRED by the US Constitution to tqake and KEEP the Oath th support and defend it. Those that do not keep that Oath need prosecution from the lowest to the highest who SERVE within our governments – state and general (federal).

    *Treason – http://www.shastadefense.com/Dare-Call-It-Treason-21.pdf

    **Terrorism – 28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    *** Perjury for one, and depending on what is done – Breaking and Entering up to First Degree Murder.

    James Madison, Federalist 47: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, selfappointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny”

    In Silveira v. Lockyer, 328 F.3d 567 (2003), Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reminded us that the Second Amendment is not about duck hunting: “All too many of the other great tragedies of history – Stalin’s atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few – were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided or mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece, as the Militia Act required here. … If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.
    “My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for re-election and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.
    “Fortunately, the Framers were wise enough to entrench the right of the people to keep and bear arms within our constitutional structure. The purpose and importance of that right was still fresh in their minds, and they spelled it out clearly so it would not be forgotten.” Judge Alex Kozinski

    Ronald Reagan: “I had a copy of the Soviet Constitution and I read it with great interest. And I saw all kinds of terms in there that sound just exactly like our own: ‘Freedom of assembly’ and ‘freedom of speech’ and so forth. Of course, they don’t allow them to have those things, but they’re in there in the constitution. But I began to wonder about the other constitutions – everyone has one – and our own, and why so much emphasis on ours. And then I found out, and the answer was very simple – that’s why you don’t notice it at first. But it is so great that it tells the entire difference. All those other constitutions are documents that say, ‘We, the government, allow the people the following rights,’ and our Constitution says ‘We the People, allow the government the following privileges and rights.’ We give our permission to government to do the things that it does. And that’s the whole story of the difference – why we’re unique in the world and why no matter what our troubles may be, we’re going to overcome”.

    Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402: “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the “high powers” delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.”

    Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. Rep. 52, at 54: “To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm … is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”

  2. The second amendment to The Constitution is, as a last resort, the enforcement clause thereof. Our country’s birth certificate mandates it our duty to engage in such enforcement should actual acts of tyranny commence, if otherwise not reasonably remedied. Pray that our forbearance as peaceful citizens is allowed to sustain, but also that the same yields to our duties in the event of miscalculation by the diabolical and scheming in our governance.
