A Noble Sacrifice In Benghazi is Honored

In the below listed article, Americans honor former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, the heroes of Benghazi, for their long distinguished service as US Navy SEALS, for saving 30 American lives in Benghazi, and for their valor while giving the last full measure of devotion to the Republic.  Kindly pass this on to those in your address book who would also honor them.

From the Gettysburg Times, Monday, February 25, 2013:

A NOBLE SACRIFICE

Posted: Monday, February 25, 2013 12:05am - Updated: 7:10am, Mon Feb 25, 2013.
BY Dick Watson Times Staff Writer 

A few months ago, on the 11th anniversary of the 2001 attack against the U.S., terrorists attacked the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.  Four Americans were killed: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, and private security detail members Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, both former Navy Seals whose sacrifice enabled 30 consulate members to get back home to their families.

Woods and Doherty were honored Saturday afternoon at a private Valor & Honor Ceremony at the Lodges of Gettysbury atop Gloryridge, a hill overlooking the Gettysburg battlefield.

The event was sponsored primarily by Sean Cassidy, the owner of the Lodges at Gettysburg, and NSW Kids, a nonprofit supporting children of the Naval Special Warfare community.

A number of corporate sponsors also attended the ceremony, as did Woods and Doherty family members and friends, some of the Benghazi consulate staff, as well as 50 active Navy Seals representing members of eight Seal teams.

The ceremony included the dedication, in Woods and Doherty's names, of a 40-foot flag pole; the participation of an honor guard led by Col. Mickey Helms, commander of the Longstreet Corps; a 21-gun salute directed by Brig. Gen. K.C. Meadows, commander of the Longstreet Corps; a "Freedom" Shot directed by the Hon. John Douglass, former Assistant Secretary of the Navy and a retired USAF Brig. General and Capt. and Unit Commander of Striblings Battery of the First Connecticut Artillery.

 

In his opening remarks, Cassidy said that Woods and Doherty, "were a living legacy of honor, valor and freedom who will never be forgotten in the special warfare and intelligence community and in the hearts and minds of proud American patriots."

 

As retired Navy Seal Capt. Rick Woolard began playing "Amazing Grace" on his bagpipe, he led everyone out to the flagpole, followed by five Honor Guard and 15 other members of the 13th and 14th Virginia Cavalry, the Black Horse Cavalry, and the 2nd U.S. Cavalry.  All were U. S. military veterans.  Included in the procession were two riderless horses with boots in the stirrups reversed, signifying fallen riders.

 

"It is fitting," said Cassidy, "that we honor Ty and Glen and dedicate this flagpole in their name here in Gettysburg that symbolizes American freedom."

 

Flying below the American flag at the top of the 40-foot pole was the flag of the Navy Seals.

 

A 21 gun salute by the honor guard was followed by TAPS, performed by Cadet Douglass, a 2nd Lt. in the Army Junior ROTC program at his high school; he will soon enter the U.S. Naval Academy's summer prep program.

 

"In every conflict there is a final shot that signifies the end of hostilities, pain and battle that all combatants look forward to," said Cassidy.  "As we prepare to fire this last shot recognizing the end of Ty and Glen's struggles and granting them peace, we ask that you attach your sorrows and grief to this final shot and remember the joy and honor these two heroes have given us."

 

Description: cid:1.2519070753@web161805.mail.bf1.yahoo.com

The 12 members of Striblings Battery of the First Connecticut Artillery then loaded and fired their Civil War cannon with nine ounces of black powder.  The resulting roar reverberated across the open fields of the Gettysburg battlefield.

 

Back inside, Suzanne Vogel, president of NSW Kids pointed out that her organization served the Naval Special Warfare community by providing testing, tutoring and specialized therapies for children in the community.  She told the several children that were present that, "We are sorry for your loss and we are forever devoted to you."

 

The ceremony concluded with personal remembrances of Woods and Doherty by family members and special friends as well as a short video about Seals' training by Michael Moorhouse.

Description: cid:2.2519070754@web161805.mail.bf1.yahoo.com

Ty Woods joined the Navy in 2002.  After becoming a Seal, he served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.  He retired as a Senior Chief Petty Officer in 2011 to do private security work for the U.S. government.  He was 41 when he was killed.

Description: cid:3.2519070754@web161805.mail.bf1.yahoo.com

Glen Doherty joined the Navy in 1995 and was a combat medic and decorated Seal (Petty Officer First Class).  A triathlete, his Seal team responded to the attack on the USS Cole and served two tours during the Gulf War.  He left the service after 10 years to do contract security work.  He was 42 when killed during the Benghazi terrorist attack.

10 Outstanding Congressmen Who Deserve America’s Support

 The below listed 10 Congressmen deserve a great deal of credit and special recognition for cosponsoring legislation that will prevent personal medals awarded for Valor in combat to military personnel whose lives were at risk or in danger, from being diminished by a new military medal for drone operators, listed below, where the lives of the recipients are not at risk or in danger at all, 5 of the 10 Congressmen who co-sponsored the legislation are endorsed and elected Combat Veterans For Congress:

 Cong Duncan D. Hunter, Capt-USMCR (R-CA-52) http://www.hunterforcongress.com/ , Cong Michael Coffman, Maj-USMC (Ret) (R-CO-6) http://coffmanforcongress.com , Cong Adam Kinzinger, Cpt-AFNG (R-IL-11) http://www.electadam.com , Cong Michael Grimm, USMC/FBI (R-NY-11) http://grimmforcongress.com , and Cong Joe Heck,

Col-USAR (MC) (R-NV-3) http://heck4nevada.com .  The other 5 Congressmen who co-sponsored the legislation are Cong Thomas Rooney (R-FL), Cong Tim Murphy (R-PA), Cong C. W. Bill Young (R-FL), Cong Ken Calvert (R-CA), and Cong Steven M. Palazzo(R-MS).

 

We strongly encourage our national base of supporters to aide in the re-election of the 10 Congressmen in the 2014 mid-term election, by either supporting their campaigns financially, encouraging voters in their Congressional Districts that you know of to vote for them, and/or by working in their campaigns to help them win re-election.

   

We would also like to give additional special recognition to Cong Joe Heck, Col-USAR (MC) (R-NV-3) http://heck4nevada.com for reintroducing the Stolen Valor Legislation on January 14, 2013, in order to support Combat Veterans who earned military medals for Valor in combat.  The legislation would make it a crime for individuals who attempt to pass themselves off as wartime heroes and would make it a crime to make false claims about receiving certain military medals, in order to obtain service benefits, a veteran’s---reserved job, and other things like seeking unearned notoriety to run for office.  The bill introduced by Congressman Heck, a Colonel and Combat Veteran in the US Army Reserve, passed 410 to 3 in the House, but the Democrat-controlled Senate preferred Senator Webb’s version    Congressman Heck said “I hope we can build off last year’s strong bipartisan support in the House and get this important bill signed into law this year.”

It is so important for the American voters to elect Patriots, Combat Veterans For Congress,  who put their lives on the line repeatedly in defense of the Republic, and understand their responsibility to continue to protect and defend the US Constitution which they swore to do, when they were inducted into  the US Armed Forces.

New Bill Aims To Reduce Rank of Drone Medal

A group of Republican lawmakers has introduced a bill to prevent the Defense Department from establishing the Distinguished Warfare Medal for drone operators as an award that ranks higher than the Bronze Star or Purple Heart.

 

H.R. 833 tells the Defense Department how to set the precedence of medals. According to the Marine Corps Times, there is a strong chance the legislation will end up as an amendment to the 2014 defense authorization bill. The bill was co-sponsored by Congressmen Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Ken Calvert (R-CA), Michael G. Grimm (R-NY), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), Steven M. Palazzo (R-MS), C.W. Bill Young (R-FL), Mike Coffman (R-CO), Joe Heck (R-NV), Tim Murphy (R-PA), and Thomas J. Rooney (R-FL).

 

TREA: The Enlisted Association believes that the new Distinguished Warfare Medal for operators of unmanned aerial vehicles should not rank above awards for ground combat troops.

 

Congressman Hunter, an Iraq and Afghanistan veteran, told the Marine Corps Times that there is a difference between direct combat and flying a drone from a safe location. “Those engaged in direct combat put their lives on the line, accepting extraordinary personal risk,” Hunter said. “There is nothing wrong with having a military award that recognizes commendable actions off the battlefield, but it’s absolutely necessary to ensure that combat valor awards are not diminished in any way.”

 

 

Michelle Obama Criticized For Using Military Officers

 Using military officer in “full dress uniforms” to be background props” for the announcement of the Best Picture for the Academy Awards is a violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).  The American people should be able to watch entertainment without heavy politics; no other US President has ever used military officers in full dress uniforms as props in the 85 year history of the Academy Awards. 

Statist propaganda: Michelle Obama slammed for using military as ‘props’ during Oscars appearance

First lady Michelle Obama is under fire after she appeared as a long-distance award presenter on the Oscars Sunday evening, flanked by active-duty American service members.

The well-dressed members of the military stood attentively behind the first lady inside the White House as she presented the award for best picture to the movie “Argo.”

But the use of those service members has left some of her critics fuming.

Dr. Benjamin Carson's Amazing Speech at the National Prayer Breakfast

 “Common sense is not so common.”   Dr. Carson employs intelligent logic to evaluate issues simply, and has the talent to communicate his logic.  In the below listed link, he is able to connect across partisan lines because he focuses on “educating/encouraging” people to think for themselves.  The foundation upon which the Republic was created was for individuals to have freedom of thought and expression, the Founding Fathers encouraged citizens to employ independent logic in evaluating issues with balance and reason.  It is unfortunate that the 535 members of Congress do not have Dr. Carson’s ability to use reasoned logic to evaluate issues and come up with solutions to a relatively simple problem that is bankrupting the Republic----just stop the out of control spending.

In addition, Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution was carefully drawn up by the Founding Fathers to give Congress, not the President, certain powers over the structure and use of the US Armed Forces. The Congress has the power to prevent Obama relentless changes in structure of the US Armed Forces from destroying the most effective military combat force in the history of mankind.  Obama’s Social Experiment on Diversity, his new oppressive military regulations that are negatively affecting moral, his new rules of engagement in combat that are creating too many casualties on the battlefield, his order to put women in front line infantry combat units that is negatively affecting unit cohesion, and all his policies are seriously degrading Combat Effectiveness.  Please click on the below listed link to view an interview with Dr. Benjamin Carson.

Combat Veterans For Congress--Protects and Defends the 2nd Amendment (6)

 We continue in our sworn oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and “Domestic.”  This is the sixth article in a series of articles, in opposition to Obama and his Socialist allies in Congress’ full frontal assault on the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.  We now know after watching Sean Hannity’s February 18th  interview of Professor John Lott, the author of “At the Brink”, who was on the faculty at the University of Chicago with Obama, that Obama actually told him that he didn’t believe “any American” should be allowed to own guns “at all”; every American you know should be alerted to Obama’s true goal, which is not to just restrict gun ownership—his current initiative to restrict gun ownership is his first step in his plan to confiscate all guns from law abiding Citizens in the Republic.  The restriction of gun ownership is a violation of the 2ndAmendment.  The only way the 2nd Amendment can be changed or modified is by taking the legal action outlined in the US Constitution.  The US Constitution provides that an Amendment may only be proposed either by the Congress with two-thirds majority vote in the House of Representatives and two-thirds majority vote of the US Senate, or by a Constitutional Convention called by two-thirds of the State Legislatures. The President does not have a Constitutional role in the amendment process, and the Joint Resolution of Congress to amend the US Constitution does not go to the White House for the President’s signature.        .

In a white paper dated January 4, 2013, the Deputy Director of the National Institute for Justice--DOJ's research and evaluation agency--said that the proposals to restrict gun control currently before Congress is unlikely to have the effect desired, unless those measures are made even more Draconian. For instance, the document makes clear that the effectiveness of "universal" background checks "depends on … requiring gun registration." On the topic of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition, NIJ writes, "In order to have an impact, large capacity magazine regulation needs to sharply curtail availability to include restrictions on importation, manufacture, sale, and possession." As for popular semi-automatic firearms, the NIJ notes, "Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to U.S. gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapons ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. If coupled with a gun buyback and no exemptions then it could be effective."  Since the previous ban of ownership of all fully automatic assault weapons, the new proposed restrictions on gun ownership enacted by the 23 Executive Orders just issued by Obama, and the new legislation in the Democratic Bill fashioned with the Obama Administration being proposed by Senator Feinstein will not be sufficient as outlined above by DOJ.  Therefore new measures to further restrict gun ownership, in order to make them ever “more Draconian” will be needed as outlined above by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice.  The step by step violation of the 2nd Amendment has been well on its way for over 2 years, long before the murders at Newtown being used to justify the current attempt to violate of the 2nd Amendment. To date, Obama has issued 921 Executive Orders in order to bypass Congress, he has issued more Executive Orders than the aggregated of all Executive Orders US Presidents have issued collectively in the 237 year history of the Republic.

US High in Gun Ownership, But Low in Murder Rate

Several reports on gun ownership around the world clearly refute the assertion that the abundance of guns in the United States leads to a high rate of firearm homicides.

Americans are the biggest gun owners by far, with an estimated 270 million civilian firearms, in addition to those used by law enforcement and the military. That’s according to the Small Arms Survey of 178 nations conducted by the Switzerland-based Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies.

In sheer numbers of civilian firearms, the No. 2 nation after the US, surprisingly, is India with 46 million, followed by China (40 million), Germany (25 million), Pakistan (18 million), and Mexico (15 million).

The United States also leads in gun ownership rate, with about 88 firearms per 100 people, according to the most recent Small Arms Survey compiled in 2007.

That is far ahead of No. 2 Yemen, which has 55 firearms per 100 people. Switzerland is third with 46 per 100 people, followed by Finland (45), Serbia (38), Cyprus (36), Saudi Arabia (35), and Iraq (34).

But when it comes to the firearm homicide rate, the United States doesn’t even make the top 25.

According to figures collected by the United Nations’ Office on Drugs and Crime through its annual crime survey, 9,146 Americans were victims of a firearm homicide in the most recent year. That translates to a rate of 2.97 firearm homicides per 100,000 population, which is only the 27th highest rate in the world.

The highest rate by far can be found in Honduras, 68 homicides per 100,000, followed by El Salvador (40), Jamaica (39), Venezuela (38.9), Guatemala (34), and Colombia (27).

For America’s neighbors, the rate in Mexico is 9.9 per 100,000, and in Canada, 0.5 per 100,000.

It is interesting to note that not only does the United States have a relatively low homicide rate compared to its gun ownership rate, but Switzerland, which ranks third in the civilian gun ownership rate, has only the 46th highest homicide rate, and Finland, with the fourth highest ownership rate, is 63rd on the list.

“The most obnoxious liberal talking points on guns involve the idea that guns, in and of themselves, cause gun violence,” writes CNS News commentator Stephen Gutowski. “In other words, more guns must mean more gun violence.”

But in light of the ownership and homicide figures, he observes: “More guns do not, in fact, mean more gun violence. Guns can be, and commonly are, used in a responsible manner, especially here in the United States.”

Forty-five countries have higher murder rates with guns than the gun murder rates in the United States, and those 45 countries all have 100% of the guns owned by their law abiding citizens banned, so why did they all have higher murder rates with guns than the United States if guns were confiscated from law abiding citizens in those countries? It is because the criminals never turned in the guns that they never registered with law enforcement authorities, and they used those guns to kill unprotected law abiding citizens.

Obama is trying to convince Americans that allowing him to confiscate guns would stop gun violence, when “he knows” that is not true; criminals and deranged gunmen will never turn in their guns.  The proven fact is that 45 countries in the world who have confiscated guns from law abiding citizens have higher murder rates with guns than the United States.  More guns owned by the 2.7 million law abiding citizens in the United States has protected them from homicides perpetrated by criminals and deranged gunmen—Americans owning a higher number of guns than the 45 countries that banned all guns, did not result in higher homicide rates than the 45 countries.

 

This is the sixth in a series of articles in opposition to Obama‘s campaign to circumvent the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution and eventually confiscate all guns.  We ask you to forward this E-mail on to those in your address book that support our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution.  The previous 5 articles in support of the 2ndAmendment can be read on the Home page of our Web site.  Please read the below listed article from a retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer and Honorable Military Veteran.

 
  WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States reversed policy and said it would back negotiations on a UN treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto. The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's Administration, which had opposed the same UN treaty on the grounds that national controls were better. The Obama Administration intends to force gun control upon all Americans by a number of initiatives, including ratification of a UN Treaty on Small Arms Control through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations.  By signing the UN Treaty on Small Arms Control, the Obama Administration can employ the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress.  Once the US Government signs the international treaty, all US citizens will be subject to those gun control laws created by foreign governments in violation of the 2nd Amendment. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by leftists and Communists in the United Nations and by individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to be the first step “to lead” to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms; 45 nations have already banned all arms. The Obama Administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens will even understand what has happened---similar to what happened when a lame duck Democratic Congress jammed thru the 2700 page flawed Obama Health Care Bill that no one ever read---and still have not read.  Obama will appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaking in secrecy, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s activities for the last 2 years of committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.

Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress, so Americans can be alerted to what is happening to their Right to Bear Arms. 

 

We will wake up one morning and find out that the United States has signed a UN treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling arms and ammunition to the public.

 

We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a UN treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership.

 

And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a UN treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.

 

This is neither a joke nor a false warning.  As sure as the Obama Administration forced a 2700 page flawed Health Care Bill down the throat of all American citizens that was crafted by Obama (that enacted 20 new taxes that no one knew about), so to are the current legislative initiatives being proposed by Senator Feinstein and Obama’s Socialists allies in Congress designed to eliminate the gun rights of law abiding citizens in the United States.  When coupled with Obama’s 23 Executive Orders, and Obama full intent to sign the UN Treaty on Small Arms Control, promoted by Obama with the help of  the left of center liberal media establishment’s frenzy to flood the media and Social network with reasons why the 2nd Amendment should be marginalized, and with the help of a infamous Socialist ally, George Soros’ funded Moveon.org,  we have been subjected to the launch of a major attack on gun right and the support of highly restrictive gun control laws—the American people are in for a major yearlong assault on the 2ndAmendment led by Obama that is an aggressive attempt to disarm the American people.  The American people must rise up and let their Congressional representatives know that they will have none of it, and will register their objections at the poles in 2014, by removing every senator up for election who supports Obama’s plan to restrict gun ownership..

 

Those of you who are of concerned about your Right to Bear Arms should write your Congressman, Senators, State Legislators, and elected Sheriffs, and inform them that you are concerned by Obama’s gun restriction initiatives over the last 2 years that are violating the 2ndAmendment to the US Constitution, and ask them to take legal action in US Federal Court to halt Obama’s continued violation of the US Constitution.

 

Step by step, Americans citizens are watched the US Constitution being violated and are having their freedom of religion violated, right to bear arms being eroded, taxes increased without proper representation, and the southern borders violated without proper protection by the Obama Administration (Every Socialist Dictator-----Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Mussolini, and Castro have come to power by first eliminating the right of law abiding citizens to own guns).

Combat Veterans For Congress--Protects and Defends the 2nd Amendment (5)

We continue in our sworn oath on to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and “Domestic.”  This is the fifth article in a series of articles, in opposition to Obama and his Socialist allies in Congress’ full frontal assault on the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. 

Criminals employed by Mexican Drug Cartels and Human Traffickers are coming across the Southern Border daily, armed with military issue Fully Automatic Assault Weapons threatening, kidnaping, and killing law abiding American citizens; it is a war zone.   DHS and the Obama Administration are not adequately protecting American citizens living along the southern border.  Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has taken legal action against the State of Arizona, because in the absence of DHS’s enforcement of Federal Immigration Laws, Arizona jumped into the breach to enforce those federal immigration laws, in order to protect their citizens.  Since DHS is not protecting Arizona’s American citizens, and has taken legal action to prevent the State of Arizona from doing so, law abiding citizens have been arming themselves “to protect life liberty and pursuit of happiness”.  Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has embarked on a number of initiatives to also restrict law abiding American citizens, in addition to the State of Arizona, from protecting themselves from heavily armed members of Mexican Drug Cartels who are trampling on the freedoms given to American citizens by the Bill of Rights.  Obama has embarked on his initiatives to restrict the gun rights of American citizens by issuing of 23 Presidential Executive Orders to restrict gun rights and is initiating legislation to further marginalize the 2nd Amendment.   The Obama Administration has further endangered American citizens living along the porous southern border by not erecting the border fence that was authorized by Congress 4 years ago (is working well in the San Diego Sector built during President Bush’s term), and DHS has not been ordered to adequately patrol very large stretches of wide open borders that you will see in the below listed video.  The Obama Administration’s initiatives are making it very difficult for law abiding citizens to acquire semi–automatic rifles (the definition for a semi-automatic rifle is a rifle that fires one shot when the trigger is pulled) to oppose the heavily armed members of Mexican Drug Cartels coming across the southern border with their Fully Automatic Assault Weapons.  If the Obama Administration is allowed by Congress to continues to marginalize the 2nd Amendment, law abiding American ranchers and citizens along the southern border will not be able to acquire the type of weapons they need to adequately protect their property, their animals (horses and cattle), and their families from Mexican Drug Smugglers, who are armed to the teeth with Fully Automatic Assault Weapons, and are coming across the border at will, both day and night.  Please view the video and listen to the comments by American Sheriff’s trying to protect their citizens living close to the border, by clicking on the below listed link;

GUEST OPINION by Don Bendell

MR. PRESIDENT: WE NEED LEADERS; NOT BABYSITTERS!

Dear Mr. President:

          With all due respect, Sir, I am not Barney Fife and do not need an authority figure issuing me one bullet to be carried in my shirt pocket except for an emergency to protect me from myself.  I do not need my government telling me what guns I should own and what size magazines they should hold. Shortly after you started first grade in Indonesia, I was using very expensive, sophisticated, REAL, automatic assault weapons with many large magazines and assorted other weapons and was teaching barely literate indigenous Montagnard warriors in South Vietnam how to use them effectively and handle them safely around family and community, too.

Your Vice President, your next in command, knows so little about weapons, Mr. President he publicly stated that shotguns are more accurate than rifles. That is as intelligent as stating that you should use a Caterpillar D9 bulldozer to plant roses in your garden.

Let’s get real, Mr. President. Every citizen in Switzerland is required to own a gun, and Switzerland has the lowest rate of gun-related crimes in the world. In fact, crimes committed with firearms in Switzerland is actually non-existent. That alone and a small modicum of common sense completely shoots down your theory that you need to enact even more gun laws in the United States than we already have. England totally outlawed guns in their country and leads the world in gun-related crimes. In fact, your town, Chicago, has the strictest gun laws in the country and the highest rate of felonious crimes committed with firearms in America.

          So, in short, your whole argument about gun control is not at all about guns, but actually about control. I pay my taxes, contribute in my community, served my nation in the military, and have always obeyed the law. I am a free American. I am not going to be controlled, except by my God-inspired morality and the laws of common decency.  No more than that should be required of me.  I have been a giver; Not a taker.

          You have had cohorts in Congress proclaim, “Nobody needs an assault weapon to shoot a duck.”

          No, we do not.  We need what you call assault weapons to protect us from meddling bureaucrats and tyrants trying to strip away our freedoms. We need such weapons to protect us from home invasion. On January 9, 2013, a Loganville, Georgia woman shot an intruder, 32 year old Paul Slater of Atlanta, five times with a revolver and ran out of bullets. Her bullets hit him in the face, neck, arm, liver, and lung, yet he still lived and was later arrested after crashing his car. What if he had two accomplices with him and she only had that six shot pistol with her two children to protect? She emptied her weapon into him at point blank range, and he ran off and drove his car away from the scene. Most break-ins occur with multiple perpetrators.

          The Japanese ruled out trying to attack America on its shores in World War II for one reason:  Too many Americans owned rifles and pistols. The military leadership in Japan decided invading America would be impossible because our citizenry was so well-armed. The only way America could ever be invaded successfully is if some naive politicians disarmed us or tied our hands with over-regulation.

          Again, Mr, President with all due respect. You and the congress work for me. I don’t work for you. I am your employer. You are our head manager, an executive, not a lawmaker. You do not have the right, power, or support to rewrite the US Constitution, especially the Second Amendment. You were a Constitutional law professor and should already know that.

          Criminals and psychos do not register their guns, and guns do not cause mass shootings: Sociopaths do. Guns, in the cars, purses, and in the pockets of law-abiding citizens also quickly stop mass shootings.

          Most Americans handle guns very well. It is choosing our leaders we have to work on.

Combat Veterans For Congress--Protects and Defends the 2nd Amendment (4)

 We continue in our sworn oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and “Domestic.”  This is the fourth article in a series articles, in opposition to Obama and his Socialist allies in Congress’ full frontal assault on the 2ndAmendment to the US Constitution.

 A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
 

In 1929, the Soviet Union under Lenin and Stalin first determined what citizens owned guns in Russia, then confiscated those guns with their Communist para-military private henchmen, and enforced gun control by eliminating all privately owned guns. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 
    ------------------------------ 
  
In 1911, Turkey under Mustafa Kemal Turkey first determined what citizens owned guns, then confiscated those guns with his radical islamists, and enforced gun control by eliminating all privately owned guns.  From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians and Christian Assyrians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.  
    ------------------------------ 
  
In 1938, Germany under Hitler first determined what citizens owned guns, then had his private army of the SS Troopers confiscate those guns, and established gun control in Germany by eliminating all privately owned guns.  From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews, Christians, and gypsies who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.  
    ------------------------------ 
  
In 1935, China under Mao first determined what citizens owned guns, then had his Communist cadres confiscate those guns, and established gun control in China by eliminating all privately owned guns. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated 
    ------------------------------ 

In 1956, The King of Cambodia first determined what citizens owned guns, then had his private army confiscate the guns, then established gun control by eliminating all privately owned guns. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated by Pol Pot

   -------------------------------

  
In 1964, Guatemala under FAR of the Rebel Armed Forces first determined what citizens owned guns, then had FAR confiscate the guns of the Mayan Indians, established gun control in Guatemala by eliminating all privately owned guns. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 
    ---- ------------- ------------- 
  
in 1970, Uganda under Idi Amin first determined what citizens owned guns, then had his private army confiscate the guns, established gun control in Uganda by eliminating all privately owned guns. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. 
    ------------------------------ 
  

         In 1959, Cuba under Fidel Castro first determined what citizens owned guns, then had his band of Revolutionary Rebels confiscate the guns, then established gun control by eliminating all privately owned guns.  From 1959 on 18,000 people who were unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

             ------------------------------
  
In the 20th Century, 56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated because Domestic Tyrants were able to find out what citizens owned guns in their countries, then used their private armies to confiscate those guns, and only then were they able to exterminate law abiding citizens at will.  The plan by Obama to get the Congress legislate the requirement for Universal Background Checks of law abiding American gun owners, who have already registered their guns with local Police and/or Sheriff Departments, is a violation of the 2nd Amendment and the first step to confiscate legally registered and owned guns.  Passing that legislature will be an attempt to establish a list of law abiding gun owners in America for Eric Holder’s establish a Federal National Gun Owners Registry.  Establishing a Federal National Gun Owners Registry would allow Holder to pinpoint who owns guns in the Republic without having to obtain that documented information from local law enforcement agencies.  The next step in the continued violation of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution would be for Obama to order certain gun owners to turn in their weapons for some trumped up reason, with the threat of fines and jail terms if they do not comply.  Vice President has already admitted publically that Universal Background Checks will not prevent mass gun shooting like that which occurred at Newtown, Connecticut.

 

All Americans should ask themselves why in the past 237 year history of the Republic no other US President has felt the need to establish a Federal National Gun Owners Registry—especially since it will have no effect whatsoever on preventing criminals, gang members, or deranged gunmen from killing innocent Americans who are already prevented from possessing their permitted guns, to protect themselves in gun free zones?

In Just 12 Months, Confiscation of Guns In Australia Has Destroyed Public Safety

 

Australian Police Officer Ed Chenel provided the below printed figures from Down Under.  It has been 12 months since law abiding gun owners in Australia were forced by new gun control laws passed by inept politicians to surrender 640,381 personal firearms for destruction by the Australian Government; the program cost Australian taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.   Criminals did not comply, and did not turn in their weapons.  By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to listen to and view how public safety has been destroyed; it should have been easily predictable by clear thinking Australian politicians.  Those inept politicians put all Australians in jeopardy by passing the restrictive gun control laws that were only aimed a law abiding citizens, and were not enforced for criminals.

 

                                                         https://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=fGaDAThOHhA  

 

The Australian experience speaks for itself; the first results are now in:

 

Australian-wide, homicides with firearms are up 19 %.  However, in one state, the state of Victoria, homicides with firearms are now up 300%

 

Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 %.

 

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 69%. While figures over the previous 25 years showed had shown a steady decline in armed robbery with firearms, the new gun control laws have increased the number of robberies dramatically upward in the past 12 months; criminals are now “guaranteed” that their prey will always be unarmed.

 

Australian-wide, home invasions are up 21%. There has been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while residents are at home, since criminals are now “guaranteed” that their prey is unarmed.

 

Australian politicians say they are at a loss to explain the increase in violence in just 12 months, after such a monumental effort and cost to rid guns from law abiding citizens.  Guns in the hands of law abiding Australian citizens used to save lives and protect the property of law abiding citizens; the new restrictive gun-control laws in Australia have negatively affected the safety of law abiding citizens and helped criminal perpetrate violent crimes.

 

You will not see these story disseminated by the left of center liberal media establishment in the US who are in a media frenzy to promote the passage of new gun control laws in the United States.

 

Great Britain passed a handgun ban in 1998. Ten years later, many British "bobbies" are armed for the first time because of the amount of illegal guns in the hands of criminals has skyrocketed and so have violent crime.

Combat Veterans For Congress--Protects and Defends the 2nd Amendment (3)

 We continue in our sworn oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and “Domestic.”  This is the third article in a series articles, in opposition to Obama and his Socialist allies in Congress’ full frontal assault on the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution---this is a freedom issue.  The City of Chicago, with strictest gun control laws of any other city in the nation, should be the safest city in the nation, but instead it has highest crime rate and murder rate of any other city in the nation (hand gun ban in Chicago is being violated by criminals; the anti-gun crusade is not in the interest of law abiding citizens). Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago reported that in 2012, 506 Americans were murdered by guns (more gun deaths occurred in Chicago than suffered by the US military in Afghanistan in 2012).  The perpetrators of gun deaths in Chicago seem to have gotten away with it, because criminals and gang members who did not register their guns and were mainly responsible for the killings, only served a total of 96 days in Chicago jails in 2012—there has been a lack of will, year after year, to enforce the existing gun laws in Chicago.  The Chicago Police Department recently announced that it will no longer respond to a burglary unless the suspect is present, due to the lack of manpower and rising crime.  Now that Chicago’s strictest gun control laws in the nation has DISARMED its citizens, they are now telling the DISARMED citizens that they are supposed to fend for themselves.  Gun bans, creating gun free zones, do not protect innocent citizens from criminals and insane shooters who go armed to those gun free zones, in order to perpetrate crimes and the mass killings of unarmed innocent people, because they know there are no law abiding armed citizens to oppose their murderous intent.  Creating gun free zones, by clueless government officials, just prevents law abiding citizens from protecting themselves.  There are already 9000 gun laws on the books, failure to enforce those existing gun laws, not passing the new complex gun laws being proposed by Obama, is the real reason people are being murdered by criminal, gangs, and deranged gunmen.  To quote Obama’s former Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, “Never let a serious crisis go to waste”; and the massacre of those 20 innocent children by a mentally deranged gunman created the “serious crisis” Obama and his staff, who had already been working on disarming the American people for the previous 2 years, were looking for.  Obama has not let Newtown go to waste—he has mounted the most aggressive campaign against the 2nd Amendment that anyone has ever attempted in the 237 year history of the Republic. 

 Our Founding Fathers did not create a Democracy; they founded a Constitutional Republic-------a Constitutional Republic protects the rights of “every” individual, even when their ideas may be in the minority. The majority in a Constitutional Republic cannot take away the rights given to every American citizen by the US Constitution, no matter what their “elected servants in Congress and the Oval Office” say or do.  
Without the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms in our Constitutional Republic, all other Amendments to the Constitution become null and void, simply because We the People would lose our power of enforcement that the Founding Fathers made sure we had; especially if a would be tyrannical leader, occupying the Oval Office, repeatedly violated the US Constitution. We need to keep these truths in mind as Obama’s Socialists and Leftist allies in Congress aggressively push to abridge the “Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms”.  We would not care if 99% of people were in support of banning the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms (which is very far from the case), their support for a ban would be a straight forward violation of our US Constitutional rights. The Republican led Congress did not oppose it; it is about time that they must finally do the job they were elected to do, and protect and defend the US Constitution.  Although they have controlled the purse strings of the government for the last 2 years, the Republican Congress has failed to rein in the out of control spending by an irresponsible Obama Administration.  The Republican leadership did not oppose, but even “voted for” the dastardly sequestering plan that Obama created and foisted on the American people which will seriously weakening the US Armed Forces.  Repeated conciliation by the current leadership of the Republican Party has not worked for over 4 years, and will not work in the future, because Obama, the left of center liberal media establishment, and the Democrats in Congress continue to misrepresent the Republican’s attempt to be conciliatory; however, staying true to and reaffirming the conservative principals upon which President Reagan governed will work.  We wonder when or if the Republican leadership will ever get it—repeating the same thing over and over again that does not work is another definition for insanity.

    Obama has repeatedly made it clear by his actions over the past 4 years that he will continue to disregard laws passed by Congress, and will continue to violate the US Constitution at will.  He signed HR 347 into law which violates the 1st Amendment and makes free speech “a federal crime” in certain areas (to be determined by the Secret Service, without advance notice, and that free speech is subject to change arbitrarily at any time). In January 2013, a unanimous Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit held that the President violated the Constitution by making “recess appointments” when the US Senate was, in fact, still in session.  In 2012 Obama refused to enforce the federal law passed by Congress, the Defense of Marriage Act, one of the laws passed by Congress that he swore to uphold on the bible when he was sworn in. Obama unilaterally exempted 800,000 illegal immigrates from federal law without consulting Congress and the ICE Federal Law Enforcement Officer have been prevented from enforcing federal laws on rounding up the 20+ million Illegal aliens in the nation---and he has done so much more to violate Constitutional law on Religious Freedom. The American voters are waiting for the Republican leadership to take “any action” to halt the assault on the US Constitution, and on the 
“Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms”? Unless Congress finally does the job they were elected to do, in 22 months the America voters will hold them accountable at the ballot box for their continued inept failure to oppose Obama’s assault on the US Constitution. It is about time for the House of Representatives to file multiple law suits in US Federal court “to finally stop the resident of the Oval Office from repeatedly violating the US Constitution.

 This is the third in a series of articles in opposition to Obama‘s campaign to circumvent the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.  We ask you to forward this articles to those in your address book that support our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution. 

Combat Veterans For Congress--To Protect and Defend the 2nd Amendment (2)

We continue in our sworn oath to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and “Domestic.”  This is the second article in a series of articles, in opposition to Obama and his Socialist allies in Congress’ full frontal assault on the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.  That mass murder which occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, occurred in the state with the strictest gun control laws in the nation.  The full background of the mentally deranged gunman who used a 9mm Glock Semi-Automatic handgun and a 9mm Sig Semi-Automatic handgun, and a Bushmaster 223 caliber Semi-Automatic rifle to murder 20 innocent children in Newtown Obama’s drive to force background checks on owners of Semi-Automatic Rifles, isto determine who possess the types of weapons that could oppose domestic tyranny. New anti-gun laws will not prevent future mass shootings in schools; local school boards should simply assign armed retired Police Officers to protect each school, like many of the larger cities already routinely do to protect their students.  Retired Police Officers received plenty of training with firearms and in how to deal with interpersonal relations. Faced with a threat, a police officer’s instinct is not to carelessly open fire---that is the “LAST” option, only if reasoning and negotiating have proven ineffective do they apply force. Students would interact with former policemen every day, and learn that Police Officers are not mean, but are mature and responsible authority figures armed with firearms to protect them; their presence would tear down tenets of the progressive orthodoxy.   

 Obama’s current campaign for national registration of all guns is fitting in perfectly with the anti-gun hysteria in the left of center liberal media establishment and with Obama’s Socialist allies in Congress who are supporting new restrictive anti-gun laws.  The newly proposed restrictive anti-gun legislation for universal background checks to get Americans to register their guns in a national registry won’t work because criminals and deranged gunmen will not comply, so universal background checks will never stop mass murderers. 

All law abiding citizens have already registered their guns locally with local law enforcement.  Obama’s initiative is an attempt to provide Attorney General, Eric Holder with a list of all gun owners in the nation who would have the type of weapons to oppose a domestic enemy.  This past week Vice President Biden admitted that the new anti-gun control laws being proposed and universal background checks proposed by the Obama Administration and Senator Feinstein will not prevent future mass killings.

 

Our investigation into the backgrounds on many of the unhinged gunmen who were involved in mass killings is truly revealing, because certain facts about their backgrounds have never been reported by the left of center liberal media establishment.  The first interesting fact is that mass murderers often have no criminal records at all.  Our investigation also revealed that they usually had a history of psychic disorders, that they often used mood altering drugs, were often revealed to be complainers, seemed to be full of resentment against those who appeared to be happy/or successful, and innumerable studies have found a correlation between their types of severe mental illness and the violent behavior that erupted into their rampages that resulted in mass killings over the past 25 years. Whenever a psychopath with a million warning signs commits a shocking mass murder, the knee-jerk reaction is to place more controls on guns that are already the most heavily regulated product in America---there are already 9000 laws on the books to control guns, but those laws are not enforced, especially in cities like Chicago and Washington DC.  New gun laws have never worked because they are only aimed at law abiding citizens and not a criminals and deranged gunmen who do not register their weapons!! Even if new laws could work---and they won’t---there are still subway tracks to throw people off of, machetes, bombs, knives, baseball bats, fists, etc. being used to kill people (The most deadly massacre at a school in US history was a bombing by a mentally disturbed man at an elementary school in Michigan in 1927) With just a single exception, the attack in Tucson last year, every public shooting in the U.S. in which more than three people had been killed since 1950 have occurred in a place where citizens are “not allowed” to carry their legally permitted firearms—they occurred in “gun free zones.” Had law abiding citizens been armed in those “gun free zones” with the guns they had previously registered locally, that they were legally permitted to possess, they may have been able to stop the mass killings before the police arrived on scene. The mass murderers knew no one else would have a gun to oppose them while they would be killing innocent people at will.

 

Did you know.....

  • A 1997 high school shooting in Pearl, Miss., was halted by the school's vice principal after he retrieved the Colt .45 he kept in his truck.

  • A 1998 middle school shooting ended when a man living next door heard gunfire and apprehended the shooter with his shotgun.

  • A 2002 law school shooting in Grundy, Va., came to an abrupt conclusion when students carrying firearms confronted the shooter.

  • A 2007 mall shooting in Ogden, Utah, ended when an armed off-duty police officer intervened.

  • A 2009 workplace shooting in Houston, Texas, was halted by two coworkers who carried concealed handguns.

  • A 2012 church shooting in Aurora, Colo., was stopped by a member of the congregation carrying a gun.

  • At the recent mall shooting in Portland, Ore., the gunman took his own life minutes after being confronted by a shopper carrying a concealed weapon.

  2,500 times last year alone legal gun owners stopped violent crime when confronted with it long before any police assistance arrived ... Of course, you probably didn't know any of this because the left of center liberal media establishment never finds it worth reporting.  It's not sensational enough and doesn't fit with their agenda. What's insane is that the vast numbers of pre-conditioned Americans by the left of center liberal media establishment, believe removing gun rights from law abiding responsible gun owners, will somehow keep them safer from criminals and deranged gunmen—they believe the police will be able to protect them----in the overwhelming majority of cases the police respond long after the murders have been committed. 

 

Did you know that one of the major reasons the Japanese did not attempt to land troops on the American coast during World War Two was because they knew that Americans owned guns and would fight tooth and nail for every inch of shore line.  Now the Chinese Communist Government is aggressively supporting the Obama Administration’s gun control initiatives.

Combat Veterans For Congress--Protects and Defends the 2nd Amendment (1)

We continue in our sworn oath on joining the US Armed Forces to protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies foreign and “Domestic.”  This is the first article in a series of future articles, in opposition to Obama and his Socialist allies in Congress’ full frontal assault on the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution---this is freedom issue.  Obama intends to bypass existing US Laws passed by Congress and the US Constitution by the issuance of 23 Executive Orders that could lead to the abolishment of the 2nd Amendment as we know it and by attempting to enact new anti-gun legislation to disarm American citizen.  Obama’s initiative to circumvent the 2ndAmendment will continue in stages, step by step, over the next 4 year, as he makes one inroad, he will pursue another to finally fully circumvent the 2nd Amendment.  I submit to you here that the first assault on private gun ownership is the initiative to ban automatic weapons domestically, in order to protect all Americans from mass murderers, and to eliminate any magazines with more than a 10 round capacity.   That stated goal is an absolute “hoax”—that misleading goal is simply a public relations campaign designed to appeal to citizens who do not know what the difference is between an “assault weapon”, a “Semi-Auto-Rifle”, an “automatic weapon”, a “semi-automatic weapon”, a “fully automatic assault weapon”, etc.; Obama and Feinstein continue to mislabel the weapons they seek to ban.  It would take much too long to explain the many sophisticated differences in this article (as an example it is impossible to configure the single shot semi-automatic  AR-15 to be a fully automatic assault rifle like the M4A1, but a skilled operator can fire multiple rounds per minute from the AR-15).  Please click on the link to get a very short explanation:

                                                  www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C-CLsMRcA0    

 

The Obama Administration’s initiative is to ban “all” automatic weapons “domestically”, including hand guns, and magazines for automatic weapons by making it a felony to sell or transfer those magazines for automatic weapons.  The common perception that so-called "assault weapons" can hold larger magazines than hunting rifles is simply wrong; any weapon that can hold a magazine can hold one of any size---that is true for handguns as well as rifles. A magazine, which is basically a metal box with a spring, is trivially easy to make and it is virtually impossible to stop criminals from obtaining magazines.  The current debate to outlaw “high capacity magazines” capable of holding more than 10 rounds—it’s a deceitful and intentionally misleading debate by the Obama Administration because that is really not their goal; the goal is really aimed at outlawing  a whole class of firearms “in common use”, in contravention of a decision by the US Supreme Court.  The Obama Administration continues to tell the American people “automatic assault weapons should only be used by the US military in combat”.  Yet Obama’s Department of Homeland Security recently put in an order to purchase 7000 “fully automatic assault weapons” and millions of hollow tipped rounds to be employed for some purpose “domestically” (the bid for 7000 “fully automatic assault weapoNS” IS found by clicking here.).   Possibly those 7000 fully automatic assault weapons and millions of hollow tipped rounds are for the Regular Corps and Ready Reserve Corps” specifically created in the attached Obama Health Care Bill and the “Regular Corps and Ready Reserve Corps” will only be under the direct control of Obama.  

 

When Senator Feinstein and Obama try to force owners of all grandfathered weapons to register their guns in a national gun registry data base, they are violating their sworn oath to uphold the US Constitution which states “Provide and secure a well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a Free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”  The leftists and Socialists in Congress leading the current frenzied anti-gun campaign will join Feinstein to continue to mislead the American people and continue to cloud the true purpose of the 2nd Amendment; they are no different from individuals who take Biblical quotes out of context, in order to justify their immoral actions.  The 2nd Amendment was not about skeet shooting, target practice, or recreational hunting; our Founding Fathers were Revolutionary War Combat Veterans who meant for the general public to be armed to the teeth as a doomsday provision to protect their freedoms when all other means to protect them from domestic tyranny failed.  They knew the only way this Republic was going to survive was if American citizens lived with their guns at the ready to fight invaders, oppose vain aspiring domestic tyrants elected to high office, and as protection against a power hungry government bureaucracy intent on over taxing them like the British Crown once did. The Founding Fathers believed if millions well-armed Americans lived with their guns, no tyrant like the King of England would ever dare to try to disarm them like his Redcoats did.  On April 19, 1775, British Army Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith led 700 Redcoats to confiscate guns and military supplies stored  by local militiamen in the armory in Bedford, Mass; the Redcoats were met by courageous Minutemen on the Lexington Green and on the Concord Bridge—the Red coats never confiscated those guns. 

 

The first step used by Hitler to disarm Germans, by Stalin to disarm Russians, by Mao to disarm the Chinese, and used by Castro to disarm Cubans, was to first find out who had privately owned guns, then those dictators had their private armies disarm the people in their countries.  Obama’s Socialist allies are going down the same road by insisting on “universal” background checks on all gun owners, they are even requiring new background checks when a man passes his hunting rifle down to his son.  A background check is “gun registration”, and we are supposed to believe that requiring all law abiding gun owners to agree to comply with background checks would prevent mass murders by deranged gunmen and gang members; it is ridicules on the face of it.   It is really requiring law abiding citizens who already have registered their guns with local law enforcement  to register their guns with Eric Holder’s National Gun Registry Regime, so Holder will now know where to find the guns without having to ask the local police chief.  Requiring universal background checks for all gun owners has nothing to do whatsoever with preventing mass murders by deranged gunmen—the only people who would ever comply with a law imposing universal background checks for all gun owners would be law abiding citizens, not criminals or deranged gunmen.   This past week Vice President Biden admitted that the new anti-gun control laws and “universal” background checks being proposed for all gun owners by the Obama Administration and Senator Feinstein will not prevent future mass killings. Identifying it as “universal” background checks is a further attempt to mislead the public, because no criminals or deranged gunman will complete a background check or register their guns with local law enforcement. The Founding Fathers were very clear about the intent of the 2nd Amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:

 

The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, is to protect themselves against tyranny in government.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      -Thomas Jefferson

 

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American peoples liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference  they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.                                                                                                                                                                 -George Washington

 

The Constitution shall never be construedto prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.                                                                                                                                                                                                   -Samuel Adams  

Make no mistake about it, the efforts by Obama to circumvent the 2nd Amendment has been underway for many years, long before the Newtown, Connecticut mass murders.  His efforts have been ongoing since the Obama Administration instructed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to support the global gun grab of the anti-American globalists to circumvent the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution by supporting passage of the radical UN Treaty on Small Arms Control.  That UN Treaty will abridge the ‘Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms”.  During the 2012 general election campaign, Obama cloaked in secrecy, his instructions to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s to commit the Republic, in stealth, to the radical UN International Treaty on Small Arms Control.   For two years, the Obama Administration has been covering up their ongoing negotiations to sign the radical United Nations Treaty on Small Arms Gun Control; it will prevent the transfer of certain privately owned firearms.  President George W. Bush’s Administration refused to sign the very “same” radical UN International Treaty on Small Arms Control, because it violates some provisions of the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.   The next round of negotiations with the UN will be led by Secretary of State John Kerry in March 2013; he will finalize the United States’ support for the ant-American globalists radical Treaty on Small Arms Control.  The Obama Administration is reversing the long-standing US Government’s opposition to the radical anti-American radical UN International Treaty on Small Arms Control. Obama’s has planned all along to bypass the normal legislative process and will not seek the support of the US House to pass new legislation that would circumvent the 2ndAmendment—he plans to by-pass the congress and only have the Democratically controlled US Senate ratify the radical UN Treaty on Small Arms Control; its ratification will take gun rights away from American citizens. The Obama Administration has been ”lying” about what the effects of ratification of that radical UN International Treaty on Small Arms Control will have on the 2nd Amendment; the Obama Administration and the State Department continue to say that the radical UN International Treaty on Small Arms Control only applies to international arms trade.  If the radical UN Treaty on Small Arms control is signed by Obama then ratified by the US Senate, it will definitely be in violation of provisions of the 2nd Amendment, and Congress should file suit in US Federal Court to prevent enactment. 

This is the first in a series of articles in opposition to Obama‘s campaign to circumvent the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution.  We ask you to forward this and follow on articles to those in your address book that support our efforts to protect and defend the US Constitution.
