Maryland Deputy AG Comments Refute ‘No One Wants to Take Your Guns’ Lie

Along with other ethical violation involving personal and professional conduct, Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiruvendran Vignarajah demonstrated his clear contempt for his oath of office when the Sri Lankan immigrant expressed his view on the right to keep and bear arms to a female journalist working with documentarian James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.

Per the recording, as presented by WBAL News Radio 1090:

Vignarajah, who is married, is apparently filmed in bars and hotel rooms with the representative, an unidentified woman posing as a law student. Over drinks, the woman asks him “off the record” about guns.

“My complete answer, off the record, is we should ban guns altogether, period,” he said. “If you want gun practice with a gun, you can go to the gun range and then you leave it there and you go home.”

He said, in his opinion, personal ownership of firearms should be limited to law enforcement and to individuals who pass licensing tests, pay a tax, have insurance and, as technology allows, have fingerprint trigger locks.

You can watch the entire exchange from the Project Veritas You Tube channel:

Per his spokesman, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh “told The Daily Caller the attorney general isn’t generally concerned about private views shared by employees in private conversations.’”

That figures – the man is a “progressive” oath breaker in his own right, and says anyone who believes in the right of the people to keep and bear arms is “absolutely nuts.”

Speaking of oath-breaking, here’s what the Maryland Constitution requires:

SEC. 9. Every person elected, or appointed, to any office of profit or trust, under this Constitution, or under the Laws, made pursuant thereto, shall, before he enters upon the duties of such office, take and subscribe the following oath, or affirmation: I, _______________, do swear, (or affirm, as the case may be,) that I will support the Constitution of the United States…

I don’t need to repeat here what the Constitution of the United States says about RKBA.

This is just one more example of how, when the antis ridicule gun owners for being paranoid with their “No one wants to take your guns” talking point, they’re lying.  Of course they do.

It’s up to us to never let them.

  1. The liberal progressive gungrabbers’ solution to preventing anyone from becoming a victim of violence is disarming all potential victims. Once all the victims are killed it necessarily follows that criminal predators will stop killing people, because all their targets have been eliminated.
    Perfect “progressive” liberal logic.
    [W3]

  2. Oath breaking is a FELONY crime. It is also the crime of Perjury.

    Remember, that the first LAW statute of the United States of America, enacted in the first session of the First Congress on 1 June 1789, was Statute 1, Chapter 1: an act to regulate the time and manner of administering certain oaths, which established the oath required by civil and military officials to support the Constitution. That is correct, it is LAW, constitutional LAW.

    The requirement for all Federal and STATE Civil officers to give their solemn and binding Oath is established in the US Constitution, Article VI, Section 1, Clause 4. Again it is the supreme LAW that all who serve within our governments MUST take and KEEP that Oath.

    5 U.S.C. 3331, provides the text of the actual oath of office the three branches of our government, the military, all law enforcement, the heads of the States, all federal employees are required to take before assuming office.

    5 U.S.C. 3333 requires the three branches of our government, the military, all law enforcement, the heads of the States, all federal employees sign an affidavit that they have taken the oath of office required by 5 U.S.C. 3331 and have not or will not violate that oath of office during their tenure of office as defined by the third part of the law.

    Then there is 18 U.S.C. 1918 which provides the penalties for VIOLATION OF OATH OF OFFICE described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include: (1) removal from office AND; (2) confinement or a fine.

    It is important to realize that 5 U.S.C. 7311 explicitly makes it a federal criminal offense for anyone employed in the United States Government to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government”.

    ANY form of Gun Control is not only a crime, it is Treason against the American people, the USA, US Constitution. It is put into the Bill of Rights to make sure that it was/is in writing that it is above, and NOT PART OF THE delegated duties to those that serve within our governments – state or federal.

    The Bill of Rights are – as William Blackstone (in his “Commentaries on the Laws of England”) defined unalienable rights – “Those rights, then, which God and nature have established, and therefore called natural rights, such as life and liberty, need not the aid of human laws to be more effectually invested in every man than they are; neither do they receive any additional strength when declared by the municipal laws to be inviolable. On the contrary, no human legislature has power to abridge or destroy them, unless the owner shall himself commit some act that amounts to a forfeiture.”

    Brookfield Construction Company V. Stewart 284 F Sup. 94: “An officer who acts in violation of the constitution ceases to represent the government.”

    Olmstead v U.S., 277 US 348, 485; 48 S. Ct. 564, 575; 72 LEd 944 U.S. versus Verdrigo-Urquidez, 110 S. Ct. 1056, 1060-61 (1990) South v.Maryland/Bowers v. DeVito: “Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a Government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Crime is contagious. If government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for the law it invites every man to become a law unto himself and against that pernicious doctrine, this court should resolutely set its face.”

    He needs to be charged with the felonies that he has committed openly, and with TREASON. Until we start enforcing and using the SUPREME LAW (and the highest law of each state) we will continue to lose our nation, and the people themselves.

    Think about it.

    How can those who serve wtihin law enforcement or in the military take the Oath seriously when we allow those that serve to commit FELONIES daily? How can the people themselves believe in the US Constitution when we who support her, or profess to, allow those crimes to go unchallenged?

  3. You will notice, they never discuss giving up their right to preach treason. Nor do they promote dispatching their own personal security service when they have such. It is just the others who are to follow their dictates. The hypocrisy is openly obvious to any clear thinking individual. They will be the first to vanish as useful idiots in the past have.

    It is our determination to not strike the first blow, but also to not stand mute and allow our loved ones, and all that we believe in and stand for, to be trampled by men who would deprive us of our God-given – or natural, if you will – rights to suit their own ends.

  4. The fist person to make a grab for my gun will be the first casualty in the next civil war. Sorry I do not tolerate ignorance nor tyranny.

  5. It’s a given that in order to conquer a nation you must first disarm them. Then, historically, all of those who passed in their firearms ended up dead, by the millions in most of history’s scenarios. Hell no we are NOT going to just give up what it took millions of lives, mostly in wars, to establish. America still stands and if We The People will only “stand together” we can easily, so to speak, “hush up” the sob’s in DC and other high places who think they, with their smug faces, fully believe they are going to reign over us like kings over servants. [One word deleted by Elias Alias, editor] that. This country is now so very “wound up” that it will take next to nothing to cause a violent explosion of civil rebellion from all walks of life …or that’s what I am seeing online and tv (which lies like a rug too). Damned media should be outlawed …bastards are (I guess) democratically oriented or controlled) ….sure seems that way eh? I’ll get off my soapbox. Hey ….we are at war. No more prepping time is left …”IT” has hit the proverbial fan and this is going to be the hardest fight of our collective lives (or lifes ….whichever you prefer).
    Don’t even think about waiting for them to fire the first shot …that isn’t how they’ll go about everything. We’ve got to resist everything that’s thrown at us from this point forth …after all, we are dealing with “domestic enemies” who just happen to be in the highest offices of our country. Don’t let that deter you ….they are nothing more or less than “enemies” who want your asses dead (so that their “faith” can enjoy your homes and tvs and etc I suppose)? No need to organize a thing. You’ll have no doubt when “the boys” start coming out of the woodwork across the nation …and if you don’t see them, you are damn sure to hear them. 🙂 Cheers and God Bless.

    1. “This country is now so very “wound up” that it will take next to nothing to cause a violent explosion of civil rebellion from all walks of life”

      REBELLION, crim. law. The taking up arms traitorously against the government and in another, and perhaps a more correct sense, rebellion signifies the forcible opposition and resistance to the laws and process lawfully issued. (http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Civil+revolt )

      It is important to get the words right. Notice that it says “… taking up arms traitorously against the government … to the laws and process lawfully issued”. None of what those who are serving within our governments concerning our weapons, borders, etc have been/are LAWFUL. To be LAWFUL they must be in Pursuance thereof the US Constitution. We would NOT be taking up arms traitorously, but in DEFENSE of our LEGITIMATE government, to replace the scum who pervert and destroy her treasonously wih those of a more lawful nature.

      Can you name any actions concerning the people’s natural right of ownership and use of weapons and the actions taken by any that serve within our governments that are lawful?
      What about .. say… can you name anything concerning TSA everywhere as being lawful?
      BLM, anything about that agency lawful?
      What those voted into office – IF Election Fraud was not used, and it was – anything they been doing lawful?
      Assassination powers, Lawful or is it really First Degree Murder?
      Wars of agression, Lawful?
      What about LE’s Breaking and entering a person’s property with NO Lawfully REQUIRED warrant (and this is also in writing)? Are these lawful actions under our US Constitution and the DELEGATED powers?
      Federal Reserve – lawful? As if it ever could be, but what about those who serve within our governments and do not REMOVE that unlawful agency, are their non actions lawful?

      So really, we have those who serve within our government – hired, elected, contracted, etc – breaking the actual put-into-writing contract(s) (US Constitution, state Constitutions) they are under, breaking their Oaths, not doing the DELEGATED duties as requiredm etc. Doesn’t this mean that they have NO LAWFUL authority anymore here in the USA?

      Yes, it does. I agree with *Dr. Vieira and the US Constitution, state Constitutions on this matter, as that is exactly what it means. It means that NOTHING they do is LAWFUL and BINDING on the American people. It also means that we are constitutionally required to replace them.

      *“This has nothing to do with personalities or subjective ideas. It’s a matter of what the Constitution provides…
      The government of the United States has never violated anyone’s constitutional rights…
      The government of the United States will never violate anyone constitutional rights, because it cannot violate anyone’s constitutional rights.
      The reason for that is: The government of the United States is that set of actions by public officials that are consistent with the Constitution. Outside of its constitutional powers, the government of the United States has no legitimacy. It has no authority; and, it really even has no existence. It is what lawyers call a legal fiction.” Dr. Vieira (End quote)

      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.”

      Benjamin Franklin: “In free governments the rulers are the servants, and the people their superiors and sovereigns. For the former, therefore, to return among the latter was not to degrade but to promote them.”

  6. As much as I agree and would like to see that traitorous immigrant POS put in jail and sent back to his country of origin, I think we are a severe minority.

    I am overwhelmed with the number of people that just don’t understand how important the constitution is and that those in office are obligated to uphold it. Also the number of people that say, “Take your guns?! That will never happen!”.

    I am doing my best to help people see the light and some are just so ignorant that they can’t. One of the most frustrating experiences in my life.

    1. People often, with ignorance, site a law that in itself is unconstitutional. Totally upside down in their thought process.

      ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ

      It is our determination to not strike the first blow, but also to not stand mute and allow our loved ones, and all that we believe in and stand for, to be trampled by men who would deprive us of our God-given – or natural, if you will – rights to suit their own ends.

  7. What’s astonishing and ironic is; these are the people we employ to uphold the Constitution. These people are no less traitors than Benedict Arnold was during the revolution. The issue of gun ownership by law abiding Americans is over. Short of civil war, the confiscation of weapons or the forced surrender of arms by Americans is just talk. The Constitution is the document all laws derive from and the right to keep and bear arms has been debated ad nauseum. It shall not be infringed!

  8. I frequently read comments, here and elsewhere on Facebook, referring to taking up arms against an unjust government to prevent gun confiscation. When I read those comments I can’t help but wonder if the writers have given any consideration to how awful that would be. Life isn’t like an action movie. There would be dead grandparents, dead children, and thousands of dead middle aged citizens. Granted, in all its horribleness, it would be better than living in a country where liberty had been smothered, but it’s way down the list of things we do next. Right now we have other options and I sincerely hope that the commenters are taking advantage of all of our peaceful options. Right now we can speak out when we hear hoplophobes calling for more “common sense gun control”. But we need to do so in a well educated, reasonable manner. The facts are on our side and every gun owner has a responsibility to know and use facts instead of insults and threats. Our position would be immeasurably strengthened if every gun owner joined the NRA or Gun Owners of America. Those organizations speaking for even half (40 million) of us would ensure that no politician would defy our wishes. Lastly we all need to be single-issue voters in order to be sure that only pro-gun candidates are elected to office. Speak out, join together and vote strictly pro-gun. If you’re not doing those three things don’t complain when we lose the Second Amendment

    1. HR
      Millions have voted in thousands of elections for hundreds of years and here we are. Professor Einstein defined insanity as doing what you have always done and expecting a different result. I know the only sure thing is all men must die – I hope and pray to be man enough to ensure that I go on my feet, not on my knees.

  9. Sorry Elias….Did not realize till I hit “POST” that this was an older thread. Sure appreciate the tireless work you do keeping the “choir” in tune.
