Asinine DC Registration

Apparently, the brilliant politicians in Washington, DC have decreed that the original infringement of firearms registration was not enough. Now, as of January 2, 2o14, residents are being forced to pay $48 to renew their registration. This new, three year registration is meant as a means to locate those people who were once legally “allowed” to possess firearms, and now have something on their record that would disallow them from their Constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Something troubling about this entire situation is the Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department estimates that there are at least 30,000 gun owners in the area. Of course, this is only 30,000 law-abiding gun owners. Then again, if you have records of registration, shouldn’t the Police have a better idea as to how many there are?

You can read the Washington Times’ story, here. What are your thoughts on this encroachment on our rights?

Chipping away at our rights

It is already a known fact that legislators across the country have been working diligently on whittling away our rights for years. The citizenry seems to be growing weaker and even more complacent, seemingly inviting more intrusions into their lives by the powers-that-be.

Yet another assault on the unalienable rights, which receive guaranteed protection from governmental intrusion via the Constitution, has been launched by a legislator who was the butt of some parody laced free speech via image manipulation software. Apparently, the gentleman did not find the humor in his head/face being ‘shopped onto a porn star’s body.

What is a legislator to do when the butt of a joke? Write laws to make those jokes illegal.

NY Assemblyman understands 2nd Amendment

Listen to the questions Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin brings up. All valid, reasonable and of course, ignored by the rest of the lawmakers.

We need more lawmakers bringing up these questions. These rushed laws do nothing but hurt law abiding citizens.

When will sense and logic make it to more law makers?

Michiganders: Support this bill!!!

Read the Official Bill

SENATE BILL No. 63

January 16, 2013, Introduced by Senators PAVLOV, JONES, GREEN, CASPERSON, MEEKHOF,
PROOS, JANSEN, BRANDENBURG, HILDENBRAND, NOFS, COLBECK, EMMONS and
MARLEAU and referred to the Committee on Judiciary.
A bill to create the Michigan firearms freedom act; to make
certain findings regarding intrastate commerce; to prohibit federal
regulation of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition
involved purely in intrastate commerce in this state; to provide
for certain exceptions to federal regulation; and to establish
certain manufacturing requirements.
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF MICHIGAN ENACT:
Sec. 1. This act shall 1 be known and may be cited as the
2 “Michigan firearms freedom act”.
3 Sec. 2. The legislature finds all of the following:
4 (a) Amendment X of the constitution of the United States
5 guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to
6 the federal government elsewhere in the constitution and reserves
7 to the state and people of Michigan certain powers as they were
2
00997’13 KHS
understood at the time that Michigan was 1 admitted to statehood on
2 January 26, 1837. The guaranty of those powers is a matter of
3 contract between the state and people of Michigan and the United
4 States as of the time that the compact with the United States was
5 agreed upon and adopted by Michigan and the United States.
6 (b) Amendment IX of the constitution of the United States
7 guarantees to the people rights not granted in the constitution and
8 reserves to the people of Michigan certain rights, as they were
9 understood at the time that Michigan was admitted to statehood. The
10 guaranty of those rights is a matter of contract between the state
11 and people of Michigan and the United States as of the time that
12 the compact with the United States was agreed upon and adopted by
13 Michigan and the United States.
14 (c) The regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the
15 states under amendments IX and X of the constitution of the United
16 States, particularly if not expressly preempted by federal law.
17 Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of intrastate
18 commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of
19 firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition.
20 (d) Amendment II of the constitution of the United States
21 reserves to the people the right to keep and bear arms as that
22 right was understood at the time that Michigan was admitted to
23 statehood, and the guaranty of the right is a matter of contract
24 between the state and people of Michigan and the United States as
25 of the time that the compact with the United States was agreed upon
26 and adopted by Michigan and the United States.
27 (e) Section 6 of article I of the state constitution of 1963
3
00997’13 KHS
clearly secures to Michigan citizens, 1 and prohibits government
2 interference with, the right of individual Michigan citizens to
3 keep and bear arms. This constitutional protection is unchanged
4 from the original Michigan constitution, which was approved by
5 congress and the people of Michigan, and the right exists, as it
6 was understood at the time that the compact with the United States
7 was agreed upon and adopted by Michigan and the United States.
8 Sec. 3. A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition
9 that is manufactured commercially or privately in Michigan and that
10 remains within the borders of Michigan is not subject to federal
11 law or federal regulation, including registration, under the
12 authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is
13 declared by the legislature that those items have not traveled in
14 interstate commerce. This section applies to a firearm, a firearm
15 accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured in Michigan from
16 basic materials and that can be manufactured without the inclusion
17 of any significant parts imported from another state. Generic and
18 insignificant parts that have other manufacturing or consumer
19 product applications are not firearms, firearms accessories, or
20 ammunition, and their importation into Michigan and incorporation
21 into a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured in
22 Michigan does not subject the firearm, firearm accessory, or
23 ammunition to federal regulation. It is declared by the legislature
24 that basic materials, such as unmachined steel and unshaped wood,
25 are not firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition and are not
26 subject to congressional authority to regulate firearms, firearms
27 accessories, and ammunition under interstate commerce as if they
4
00997’13 KHS
were actually firearms, firearms 1 accessories, or ammunition. The
2 authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce in basic
3 materials does not include authority to regulate firearms, firearms
4 accessories, and ammunition made in Michigan from those materials.
5 Firearms accessories that are imported into Michigan from another
6 state and that are subject to federal regulation as being in
7 interstate commerce do not subject a firearm to federal regulation
8 under interstate commerce because they are attached to or used in
9 conjunction with a firearm in Michigan.
10 Sec. 4. Section 3 does not apply to any of the following:
11 (a) A firearm that cannot be carried and used by 1 person.
12 (b) A firearm that has a bore diameter greater than 1-1/2
13 inches and that uses smokeless powder, not black powder, as a
14 propellant.
15 (c) Ammunition with a projectile that explodes using an
16 explosion of chemical energy after the projectile leaves the
17 firearm.
18 (d) A firearm that discharges 2 or more projectiles with 1
19 activation of the trigger or other firing device.
20 Sec. 5. A firearm manufactured or sold in Michigan under this
21 act shall have the words “Made in Michigan” clearly stamped on a
22 central metallic part, such as the receiver or frame.
23 Sec. 6. This act applies to firearms, firearms accessories,
24 and ammunition that are manufactured and retained in Michigan on or
25 after October 1, 2013.
26 Sec. 7. As used in this act:
27 (a) “Borders of Michigan” means the boundaries of Michigan

HR 226: SAFE ROSA – Assault on the Constitution

House Bill 226: Support Assault Firearms Elimination and Reduction for our Streets Act

Nothing like another outright assault on the Constitution by a Congress woman hailing from Connecticut. Aside from all of the other blatant, over reaching portions of this bill, this section is the biggest affront to sensible minded people, who comprehend  the Constitution’s text of “shall not be infringed.”

“(L) A semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General. In making the determination, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any Federal law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.

Seriously? I would like Representative Rosa DeLauro to show me where in the Constitution, or in Supreme Court rulings, the term “sporting purposes” are mentioned.

This entire bill is rife with issues. With hope for reason and logic to enter the Chambers of Congress, this bill should, rightfully so, be put out to pasture, along with HJ Res 15: Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual…
