Folks, this gets scarier by the day. The VERY SAME man that freed and dismissed 2 men dressed as “Black Panthers” (see latest development on this case) who were blocking access and sporting nightsticks at the voting polls in Philly last year, could very well be granted authority over ALL AMERICANS over the right to own and bear arms!
This is also the very same man that has with VICIOUS POLITICAL INTENT, gone after the past administration looking for “Social Justice” for those that committed an act of WAR upon the American People on our own soil!
Our Constitution states without DOUBT and with PERFECT CLARITY the reasons why we the people shall be allowed to own guns. So the FACT that this current administration would wish to disarm us is prophetic!
The world history model for societies who were forcefully regulated and disarmed by their governments and ruling dictators, has not ended well for the people. WAKE UP and smell the COMMUNISM!!
It is time to REAFFIRM our LIBERTIES and OUR RIGHTS GRANTED by our founding fathers!!
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms..disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.” – Thomas Jefferson quoting Cesare Beccaria, Criminologist in 1764.
“The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.” -Thomas Jefferson
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” -Thomas Jefferson
Below are a few paragraphs from HR 45 that I found EXTREMELY TELLING and FOREBODING!!
SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.
- (1) the manufacture, distribution, and importation of firearms is inherently commercial in nature;
- (2) firearms regularly move in interstate commerce;
- (3) to the extent that firearms trafficking is intrastate in nature, it arises out of and is substantially connected with a commercial transaction, which, when viewed in the aggregate, substantially affects interstate commerce;
- (4) because the intrastate and interstate trafficking of firearms are so commingled, full regulation of interstate commerce requires the incidental regulation of intrastate commerce;
- (5) gun violence in the United States is associated with the majority of homicides, over half the suicides, and two-thirds of non-fatal violent injuries; and
- (6) on the afternoon of May 10, 2007, Blair Holt, a junior at Julian High School in Chicago, was killed on a public bus riding home from school when he used his body to shield a girl who was in the line of fire after a young man boarded the bus and started shooting.
(b) Sense of the Congress- It is the sense of the Congress that–
(1) firearms trafficking is prevalent and widespread in and among the States, and it is usually impossible to distinguish between intrastate trafficking and interstate trafficking; and
(2) it is in the national interest and within the role of the Federal Government to ensure that the regulation of firearms is uniform among the States, that law enforcement can quickly and effectively trace firearms used in crime, and that firearms owners know how to use and safely store their firearms.
