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?

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…
