South Carolina State Senator Lindsey Graham has betrayed his constituents. Yesterday he introduced a bipartisan bill for universal background checks under the guise of preventing those that are ” insane” from purchasing guns. I have been thinking about this issue for awhile as I was very conflicted about it. I don’t like crazy people wielding guns, but at the same time, a right is a right. My friend and fellow Libertarian Austrianaut put it this way. He said, “Now, everybody has a crazy uncle Earl. While crazy uncle Earl may seem a bit off his rocker due to what happened to him back in ‘Nam, would you ever want your beloved (yet slightly off-kilter) uncle becoming a victim of a home invasion due to his mental state?” That really got me thinking. NO ONE should ever be stripped of their right to defend themselves, EVER! Rights are innate and should never be taken away. In my eyes, I guess that also means voting rights.
Senator Graham also spent last night wining and dining with the President instead of standing with Senator Paul on US Soil Drone Strikes. Not only did he not show solidarity with his fellow conservatives (and an absolute respect for the Constitution), he showed support for the current administration and their ideal that killing US citizens on US soil was a-OK. “Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, praised the Obama administration for its use of drone strikes abroad and offered his view that the wartime authority Congress granted to use military force against Al Qaeda made no exception for domestic soil. Mr. Holder indicated that he agreed.” He has no respect for us and no respect for the Constitution.
Let’s make sure that this RINO knows where we stand in 2014.
I recently learned something about American history that I didn’t know. The Battle at Lexington and Concord was because of imposed British disarmament of the local militia. Seems The American War of Independence began on April 19, 1775, when 700 Redcoats under the command of Major John Pitcairn left Boston to seize American arms at Lexington and Concord. (Source).
Senator Feinstein has been very adamant that she “doesn’t want to take our guns” but look at what her home state is proposing. Complete seizure of all registered assault weapons, which they are aware of due to registration. This proves that they do in fact, want our guns. Even though I don’t live in California, this scares me. We have to be ever vigilant. If California wins this, other states will become emboldened and attempt such draconian measures. A 500 round limit…I shoot that on a good range day. Or I did, before 5.56 became unobtanium.
Please contact your Congressmen. Lets fight this, and keep the Republic alive. None of us want to fight for our God-given rights, but if this country doesn’t change course, it may become necessary. If we lose this battle on the Hill, we may have to carry it to the streets.
Hopefully you have contacted you representatives. Hopefully you have joined the NRA and/or another 2nd Amendment organization. Now it is time to do something else. On Saturday, January 19, across this great nation, patriots will be gathering at our respective state capitols for a peaceful, friendly demonstration of how we feel about our rights. Here in South Carolina, Columbia will be full of people who are ready to take a stand. Sootch00 has put together the video. Please watch it, share it, and spread the word.
This may be the most concise hard-hitting video on the impending gun control. ***WARNING – there is some language, but we are all adults and this is a serious matter***
It is from Travis Haley, founder and CEO of Haley Strategic, former CEO of Magpul Dynamics. Haley is a veteran Force Recon Marine who has real world experience in areas that have disarmed their citizenry.
http://minx.cc/?post=336072 This is the same attitude that looks to gun control in an effort to curb violence. They banned guns and out didn’t work, now knives. What’s next, banning cricket bats? People, please let your voice be heard. Contact your congressmen and litter then know your stance on guns and the 2nd Amendment.
