Stigmatizing Gun Owners
Makes Civil Debate Impossible

Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/27/2012 10:28:44 PM

The decision of a newspaper in New York’s Westchester County to publish an interactive map that allowed readers to discover the names and addresses of owners of legal guns is generally being debated as one about whether the Gannett-owned Journal News showed good judgment. It didn’t, but the problem goes a lot deeper than whether or not a newspaper ought to publicize information that is legally available to the public in this manner. The controversy goes to the heart of the entire discussion about guns in this country. No matter what those behind this stunt say

This isn´t something up for debate. The second amendment was put there due to the justifiable fears of a tyrannical government - which we have now. The LPs (Libtards/Progtards) pushing to disarm the citizenry are domestic enemies of the constitution and traitorous enemies of this Republic. Every one of them needs a fair 3 min trial and execution - we used to execute traitors, why has it fallen out of favor?

....and therefore a Laurel and Hardy handshake to the blogger who published the names, addresses and phone numbers of the paper`s editor`s and other management staff. In fact, too bad they were not plastered on a freeway billboard or perhaps write them on the moon where everybody can see them.

Agree with #1. What debate?? The very fact that you feel there is room for debate here is a non-starter. Help from our legal experts here. The Constitution is amendable but the Bill of Rights is not. Is that right?

We are military and we were transferred to the first state we have ever lived which is reliably red. My youngest was telling me how, while she misses her friends from the blue area we lived in, she really likes this place better. WHat is the big difference- civility. No one, not even others of other religions, make fun of her Christianity. I noticed another big difference- no deer problem- yes, there are deer, but no problem unlike the blue states. But then all these wonderful civil people have guns. They are very popular here. Oh, and we have less accidental shootings than in a blue area we lived in.

#6 any of the first ten amendments can be repealed - or they can just be ignored if you get the right people running things. Today we completely ignore the 4th and 10th Amendments. The 3rd has been ignored since 1862. The 1st has been ignored since the 1970´s and is explicitly overruled by Obamacare´s prohibition of Catholics exercising their ancient religious duty to care for the sick.

I´m going to sugggest that we take what they have intended for evil and use it to our good. I don´t imagine that most of us discuss firearms with casual friends and aquaintances - not because we are ashamed or embarrassed, but because we don´t always know how they will react. Those who live in areas where these lists have been published may now have an advantage.

If you find out that the nice elderly couple across the street have the same taste as you, or the young couple down the road, whose kids always play with your kids, don´t think the second amendment is just about hunting, consider starting up a conversation with them that might be a little awkward at first, but could lead to a strengthening of your community. Maybe there are people in your church or theatre group that you would never have guessed at. Find each other. Build the relationships. Know whom you can depend on.

Though it´s not what they had in mind, they have given us a tool that we can use to make ouselves stronger. And it might be very important for us to use it in such a time as this.

OPEN LETTER TO GUN-CONFISCATION ADVOCATES:

Will you give up your right to own a gun for protection when you move into your trendy "diverse" neighborhood?

Will you forever refuse to hire a security guard for your family´s protection?

Will you patronize a bank that has no security guard in a neighborhood not as nice as your own?

Will you board an airplane that has not run travelers through a gun-detector as you watch the turbaned men pass through unchecked? (oops, is that profiling?)

Will you send your children to a "gun-free" school in a neighborhood that´s got a history of allowing delinquents to roam free?

Will you insist everyone give up their guns, including yourself, in a neighborhood where there have been armed B&E´s?

Just ask liberals if gun ownership is always bad. Then ask them under what circumstances they might want a gun for themselves or their family. Bet you get, "If there were no guns, there would be no murders", the most easily-disproved statement possible.

Inre: #6

The entire Constitution, including the Bill of Rights is subject to ammendment. The "Bill of Roghts" is itself merely the first 10 Ammendments that were agreed after passage of the original document.

Tobin is absolutely correct in the column; The Left does not accept the SCOTUS´ Heller decision as legitimate. They don´t want to "control" guns. They want to "remove" them as a means to control people.

And the American people know this- which is why gun sales continue at an unprecedented pace since Obama took office.

There is no room for debate. The Second Amendment was included to allow us to protect ourselves from this type of politician. No permit required, other than the Constitution.

This is what results when you allow the children of Cain to drive God out of every aspect of our lives.

Before you get my legal and unregistered gun I´ll pry your gun from your cold, dead hand, then I will have more to fight you with.

p.s. bring extra ammunition, I will make good use of it.

Thnks. #s 8 & 11. Here is my reasoning. All the ten amendments of the Bill of Rights are in form of an admonition to various branches of government not to interfere or try to limit or negate natural, god given rights possessed by the People. Going back to Jefferson´s comment that the god that gave us life also gave us liberty at the same time. The Amendments themselves grant no rights, so there is nothing to take away. Repealing or ignoring any of the provisions of the First Ten is granting government the power to deny that which is not given by them. The entire Constitutional construct and the Republic comes apart if that is tried.

There is a reason why the Founders set up the Bill of Rights in the order it is. There is not the topic of the fifth Amendment that occurs first place- the right not to self-incriminate. It is not the Tenth amendment topic of the sovreignity of the states in 1st position.
No it is the Freedoms first and then the 2nd -which are the guns to back that Freedom list up.
The founders were and are smart. They knew that every Bill of Rights issue follows from the first two.

The problem is that the left does not revere the Constitution except for the parts they can twist into a pretzel to achieve their goals. However, just think where we would be if the Federalists had prevailed and the Bill of Rights had not been included in the Constitution. The left (and most of the ruling class) refuse to accept the tenets of the Second Amendment. It was written ONLY to buffer the people from a future federal government such as we have now.

What a brutal joke on a communist subservient media to see people like Piers Morgan, Diane Sawyer and Tom Brokaw taking only the dictators views.

There is no discussion. Leftwingers want our guns, we would be crazy to give them up. You can;t have a discussion about anything with leftists. They lie about everything, especially the motives an character of their enemies - the people who value freedom. America would be better off if we split the country, and the two countries could then establish diplomatic relations. The leftwingers would then have professional liars to handle their end of the "discussion". Our side of the discussion would be "We have you surrounded, and we have all your guns".

Did Justice Kagan embarrass herself
during the Hobby Lobby oral arguments?
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 3/30/2014 9:41:50 AM     Post Reply
If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

More than half of the 2.6 million Americans dispatched to fight the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan struggle with physical or mental health problems stemming from their service, feel disconnected from civilian life and believe the government is failing to meet the needs of this generation’s veterans, according to a poll conducted by The Washington Post and the Kaiser Family Foundation. The long conflicts, which have required many troops to deploy multiple times and operate under an almost constant threat of attack, have exacted a far more widespread emotional toll than previously recognized by most government studies and independent assessments:

Military officials said they are investigating the conduct of a U.S. Marine who was on assignment for President Obama’s trip to the Netherlands last week, after witnesses said he was talking in detail about his job and passing around his government security badge during a night of drinking at a bar. The Marine, Korey Nathan Pritchett, was first identified by a Dutch newspaper based on witness accounts and smartphone photos taken during the partying, which happened two nights before Obama arrived at The Hague for a nuclear security summit. The Washington Post confirmed and expanded on that reporting through interviews,

TBILISI, Georgia Halfway through an otherwise coherent conversation with a Georgian lawyer here — the topics included judges, the court system, the police — I was startled by a comment he made about his country’s former government, led by then-president Mikheil Saakashvili. “They were LGBT,” he said, conspiratorially. What did that mean, I asked, surprised. Were they for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights? For gay marriage? Were they actually gay? He couldn’t really define it, though the conversation meandered in that direction for a few more minutes, also touching on the subject of the former president’s alleged marital infidelity,

Democrat Rep. Nancy Pelosi just might be a racist monster who wants to murder live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Why would I say such an outrageous thing? Because Pelosi has accepted an award named for Margaret Sanger. And Margaret Sanger was definitely a racist monster who advocated murdering live children for the sake of eliminating “undesirables.” Quote: The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it. That’s advocating child murder. It’s not racist, but we’re not done. Sanger considered racial minorities to be “human weeds.” In context,

Barring a miraculous upsurge in President Obama’s dismal 41% approval rating, Hillary Clinton’s run for president in 2016 will be a steep uphill climb. Clinton will need to walk a political tight rope, distancing herself from Obama without coming across as a disloyal member of the president’s political coterie. "Secretary Clinton is distancing herself a bit on foreign policy matters from the administration recently," said John Hudak, a Brookings Institution fellow and expert on presidential campaigns. "This is a pretty standard practice for anyone looking to succeed the sitting president, even within the same party." Nevertheless, Hillary enjoys the fruits

Big Win for Women in Texas

A federal appeals court Thursday handed women in Texas a big win by upholding health and safety regulations that had been challenged by Planned Parenthood. Last year Texas passed a law that requires abortion doctors to have admitting privileges at a hospital no more than 30 miles from where the abortion is provided. The appeals court quoted a board-certified Ob/Gyn who explained that requiring admitting and staff privileges “provides a more thorough evaluation mechanism of physician competency” and “acknowledges and enables the importance of continuity of care.” The appeals court explained that the “specter of Dr. Kermit Gosnell” informed the

When Sen.

As lovely as what Obama said five years ago to the United Nations: “No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation.” That’s the kind of sentiment you expect from a Miss America contestant asked to name her fondest wish, not from the leader of the free world explaining his foreign policy.

The Supreme Court searched Tuesday for ways to let women get birth control without the government forcing their employers to cover the cost, as justices tried to balance business owners’ religious rights against allowing religious objections to a broad range of public policy issues. Justices touched on abortion, the limits of federal power and details of birth control, but the case centering on the Hobby Lobby craft store chain likely will come down to whether the court believes for-profit companies and their owners can claim a moral conscience objection to paying for employees’ birth control. The court’s liberal members —

The Washington Post is reporting that the Obama administration will give extra time to Americans who say they are unable to enroll in health-care plans through the federal insurance marketplace by the March 31 deadline. According to the Post, consumers who have begun to apply for coverage on HealthCare.gov, but who do not finish by Monday, will have until about mid-April to ask for an extension. To take advantage of this extension, consumers need only check a box on HealthCare.gov to indicate that they tried to enroll before the deadline.

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy.

Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit. (Snip) Saturday’s conference, supported by the NAACP and Fair Housing Center of Metro Detroit, is to feature talks by President Barack Obama’s former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.
