Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

Obama Will Push For Gun Control in Wake of AZ Shooting!

As predicted, the Scum Obama and the anti-Second Amendment types will likely push for "stronger" gun control laws starting next month.

This was well predicted by myself and many others as these low life leftists will capitalize on an unrelated tragedy to push their radical agendas. The push will likely be around stronger background and "mental" checks on potential gun purchases.

As I said in my previous post after the shooting, These zealots will go after regulation and rules that will be difficult to prove or disprove. Specifically, who will decide what constitutes a "mental condition"??

Of course these efforts will be helped by the fact that the Supreme Court got involved in the recent Chicago case where they ruled the city could not have so restrictive policies. This was applauded, wrongly, by the pro-gun lobby and myself. Why? Because this is another example of "Incorporation" whereby the Supreme Court incorporates Constitutional protections given to citizens against the Federal government and forcing these rules onto the states--where the Founders never intended for these rules to apply. In other words, the Congress cannot infringe on Second Amendment rights, but states, cities, etc are free to do so if they wish and the Feds should have nothing to say about it.

By incorporating these rules, the Supremes have given power of regulation back to the Congress and President that they do not have. So before you cheer on the Supreme Court for slapping down a state law that YOU disagree with, understand they do not have that authority to do so in most situations and the next time they do it, it could very well be against a law that you FAVOR. Then what will you say? It will to late then as you have already ceded power to them when it suited you!

As far as this gun control legislation, it will be difficult for Obama to get anything through the Congress, but as have seen, he cares nothing about the legislative process and be prepared for him to attempt to get his way thorough back door regulations and bureaucracy. I hope the GOP stands ready to block all attempts at doing so.

Like the late Charlton Heston once said, you can have my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands! I have a feeling that sentiment will be shared by millions soon enough!
