Nation’s Capital Backs Down From Gun Ruling

121

Washington D.C. officials have announced that they will drop their pending appeal over a federal ruling eliminating the district’s long-enforced public gun ban. A Federal court determined last year that D.C.’s ban on public carry was unconstitutional, setting in motion the city council’s new, severely restricted policies on issuing concealed-carry permits.

Attorney General Karl Racine said, “We need to focus our energies not on litigating old laws, but defending new ones that our leaders enacted in good faith to comply with court rulings while still protecting public safety.”

Opponents have good reason to question the “good faith” of that compliance, however. Washington D.C.’s provisional carry policies are still among the strictest in the nation. Under the new rules, applicants must prove their safety is in imminent danger before being issued a permit. While that’s better than the old laws – where citizens could only keep registered firearms in their homes – it’s still not good enough. It violates both the spirit and the letter of the Second Amendment, and that’s why it’s the subject of two simultaneous legal challenges.

Meanwhile, Republican Senators Marco Rubio and Jim Jordan are seeing what they can do in Congress to get those laws changed. The pair introduced legislation on Thursday meant to remove gun-control power from the D.C. City Council, move D.C.’s gun laws closer to federal regulations, allow D.C. residents to buy firearms in Maryland and Virginia, and repeal the strict registration system enacted by the council. Rubio and Jordan also hope to put in place a “shall issue” policy for concealed carry permits in the capital.

“For years, the District of Columbia has infringed on its residents’ Second Amendment rights and rendered them vulnerable to criminals who could care less what the gun laws are,” said Rubio. “This legislation will finally allow D.C.’s law-abiding residents and visitors access to firearms for sporting or lawful defense of themselves and their homes, businesses and families.”

Rendered them vulnerable to criminals who could care less what the gun laws are. That’s a beautiful way to put it, and it gets to the heart of why restrictive gun laws in D.C. and elsewhere are so asinine. In an ostensible effort to make our communities safer, anti-gun liberals refuse to admit that registered permit-holders pose no danger to the public. Making it difficult or impossible for law-abiding, stand-up citizens to carry guns does as much for the common good as teaching rapists not to rape. Oh, wait, there’s another concept the left loves.

This fight is important, if only because the Constitution is being mocked in its very home. If we can’t abide by the founding document in the city that represents America, what chance do we have of winning the larger war for personal freedom?

    It’s “pathetic” that we have to continue to fight our own Government to own, posses and carry firearms when it’s automatically; a Human Right, a God Given Right and a Second Amendment Right.
    One thing it is NOT, it is NOT the Government right to take away our rights.
    Even if we didn’t have a Constitution and the Bill of Rights, self preservation, self protection is still automatically a Human Right. But, if the Criminals in “OUR” Government want to keep trying to take away our rights then, we will continue to fight them, to keep our rights.
    Bottom line from what I’ve found is; the taking away of our rights is the goal of the elite via the United Nations to reign in a One World Order in-which they are the Kings and “We the People” are their slaves.
    And as we all have seen from history, the first step in taking total control of us all is to take away our guns.
    I’ve said it many times and I will never change on this;
    “I will die fighting this Tyranny before I’ll EVER give-up like a coward and live on my knees!!!

    1. George Cahonna says

      YES Dave>>>>>>They Win Only If We Let Them America….Long Overdue to start pushing back.

      1. EMIRCITNA says

        NEVER FORGET that our founders penned the Second Amendment as a ‘remedy of last resort’ against tyranny should all other peaceful remedies fail to secure our freedom, liberties and security!

        THE STATES have the POWER to nullify any and all unconstitutional laws & mandates coming down to them from the federal government….THUS it is extremely important for voters to be informed in order to keep both Democrats & RINO’s OUT of public office, even at the local level!

        “An enlightened citizenry is indispensable for the proper functioning of a republic. Self-government is not possible unless the citizens are educated sufficiently to enable them to exercise oversight.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

        1. George Cahonna says

          It is written, & we must use it if necessary. Freedom is Not Free

          1. EMIRCITNA says

            IF THE STATES fail us….YES!

        2. Tasine says

          An “enlightened citizenry” is something we do NOT have. There are some who are enlightened, MANY who are brainwashed by the DNC and its elves, and the rest of our citizenry is brain dead.

          1. EMIRCITNA says

            THAT is the ‘norm’ when the most evil people gain control of a country’s major media and educational institutions…..which are the stepping stones in allowing them to gain control of GOVERNMENT!

          2. mallen11 says

            That is exactly what Hitler did in Germany.

          3. Victor Archuleta says

            The problems facing America can be solved when God-fearing Patriots take it upon themselves to educate their friends and family members, participate in local meetings, even organizing them.

      2. Robert Young says

        Yes, puhs hard and quickly as we are facing a Nuclear War with our leader helping our enemies acquire Nukes as he has said he will stand with them.

        1. George Cahonna says

          Yep, makes one sit down, take a breath, & ask themselves. How the H*** could we allow ourselves get in this situation in the first place?

          1. mallen11 says

            When people reject God in great numbers, there is a falling away from the truth in God’s Word and the secular world turns good into evil. This has been going on for a very long time and we should not be shocked at the results. As goes the believer, so goes the nation.

          2. Tasine says

            Thumbs up, Mallen! I don’t call myself a Christian, but I hold Christianity and its followers in high regard because without it this nation would have never been, without it our nation would not have lasted as long as it did. I do follow the moral principles that your religion teaches because IT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Once morality goes, the nation goes. Nowadays, the sense seems to many to be “the more decadent, the better”, and that makes me almost physically ill.

          3. mallen11 says

            Thank you for your respectful reply and I hope that you will come to the knowledge of salvation through Jesus Christ.

          4. Tasine says

            You are most gracious. I am not without knowledge re the Christian religion, but I have a brain that just will not be still and while I KNOW I belong in the fold, I also know that since belief of the absolute truth of the Bible is a prerequisite, I just cannot twist my thinking to accept that belief. I could cheat (as I know some people do) and pretend to be Christian, but then that is worse than accepting that I do not qualify. Between a hard place and the rock. 😉 God bless

          5. Victor Archuleta says

            I urge you to obtain a copy of Thomas Jefferson’s Bible. He championed the moral and ethical principles of Jesus of Nazareth, writing on 4-21-1803: “To the corruptions of Christianity I am indeed opposed; but not to the genuine precepts of Jesus himself. I am a Christian, in the only sense he wished any one to be; sincerely attached to his doctrines, in preference to all others.“

          6. Carol Chadbourne says

            MOST of us have been fighting this EVIL from the time this pos usurper came on stage….only to find out that most of Congress has been fighting US(A)…a great deal of this tyranny could not have happened if there was no george soros with multi-billions of $$$$…and the prez WASN’T valerie jarrett . the ‘clown’ does NOT make a move unless SHE says so. DC…District of Communists.

      3. Tasine says

        I don’t disagree with your comment, but I would like to also know what method you think might work in “pushing back”.

        1. George Cahonna says

          Getting involved with what your Congressman/Senators are doing.(both Left & Right) Being VERY vocal if they are not doing their jobs, & not following the Constitution/Bill of Rights to the letter. This is a good start.

          1. Tasine says

            Well, George, I’ve been doing that for going on 50 years and all I have seen is decay and rot. I need a better idea than THAT. I have donated, I have emailed, I have done letters, I have telephoned, I have attended meetings, etc. There is virtually nothing the government does that I approve of, and feel we as a nation would be better off is we disbanded it.

          2. George Cahonna says

            When the Government ignores “We the People” then their is only one option left & that’s Revolution. But, just how many of “We The People” are willing to challenge the Gov? Most out there do not even know who they’re Govern is, & comfortable with what they have. Many are just afraid of making waves. The good news is, it will not take a very large percentage of Patriots to make a very significant difference in the right direction. Personally, I think the revolution has already started, & building.

          3. Tasine says

            I truly want to believe that you are right and that enough people are getting fed up because I’m over-filled with disgust at all the foolishness and danger our government provides for us. I haven’t even been able to get anyone to join me in a tax revolt. If I cannot get ONE person to do that, it’ll be a sorry revolution.

          4. George Cahonna says

            Hang in there.. Theirs more of us than you think

          5. mallen11 says

            Man cannot solve man’s problems when we made them ourselves. When God is left out of the equation, man will suffer because man worships self and does not do things God’s way. I commend your efforts to try to reach the deaf and blind representative. They have their own agenda and it is not We the People.
            Psalm 28:5 Because they regard not the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.
            Luke 18:27 But He said, “The things that are impossible with people are possible with God.”
            II Peter 3:18… but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. (When we do this, God will deal with our problems)

    2. ricarrdo estavans says

      The 2nd amendment protects all the other rights from our most merciful and great tyrannical narcissist BO.

      1. EMIRCITNA says

        Kind of wonder WHY it was not penned as the FIRST Amendment!

        1. Krazeehors says

          Because Freedoms of Speech, Religion, and the Press are more important!

          Why?

          To enable us to SPEAK FREELY about the tyranny of this government!

          1. EMIRCITNA says

            BUT…the Second Amendment is the PROTECTOR of those freedoms!

          2. Krazeehors says

            Why do you think the Second Amendment isn’t first?

            Because we cannot SHOOT FIRST and ASK QUESTIONS LATER. If we do that we are introducing anarchy into our government by the citizenry, and we are no better than the gangs who are running our inner-city streets.

            Had the Second Amendment BEEN first when Sandy Hook happened, it would have been repealed by sheer outrage of the people. Guns WOULD have been confiscated, by force, if necessary.

          3. EMIRCITNA says

            I DO BELIEVE you’ve gone ‘overboard’, my friend!
            It’s a moot argument, and only my personal opinion seeing that the Second Amendment is the citizen’s last resort remedy in preserving not only the Bill of Rights but the entire U.S. Constitution from wannabe tyrants & despots!
            Have a good day.

          4. Krazeehors says

            No, ma’am, I have NOT “gone overboard.” YOU asked me why the Second Amendment was NOT the First Amendment — I explained it to you.

            Everyone knows (or should know) that the way to control the citizenry of ANY country is to first take control of the economy (O’Care and the fact that it is administered and controlled by the IRS took control of over 1/6 of the economy), and SECOND to disarm ALL citizens.

            Second, I fully support the Second Amendment.

            And, when Sandy Hook happened, this pos thought it would give him a perfect opportunity to get ALL guns out of the hands of Americans. He did NOT anticipate the backlash. Senator Diane Feinstein said, “If I had MY way, it would be ‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in!'”

            We DO have a tyrant in control of this country, and a bunch of tyrannical Democrats who would love to see the Constitution repealed in its entirety.

            Gun seizure has already happened in Australia, it happened during WWII, and it happened in the USSR and China.

            I am a student of history and study it constantly. I understand that you were expressing your personal opinioo, you asked me a question, and I answered it.

            Happy Easter.

          5. Tasine says

            Free to speak freely as long as you are VERY CAREFUL WHAT WORDS YOU USE. Use the wrong words and you WILL be hauled in for some severe questioning, if not outright arrested and dragged to jail; resist and you may be killed on the spot……..because using the wrong words labels you as a terrorist and it seems to be OK for government to kill “terrorists”. If you are not a terrorist, the police may leave you alone, but NOT if you are a terrorist, and it isnt the cops who define “terrorist”.

          6. Krazeehors says

            I DO understand that because I was targeted by Obama when I protested his proposed bombing of Syria after the gas attack. I still have the letters.

            TWO WEEKS after he received that letter and all of a sudden, $1300 came up MISSING from my bank account. The VA “said” they sent me a letter six months prior, to the FIRST address I lived at when returning home. They didn’t. They said I had to verify my marital status IN WRITING, something the VA no longer requires. THEN, they send me yet another form asking for a SECOND verification that I had not remarried, IN WRITING.

            Believe me, I know EXACTLY what you mean.

          7. Tasine says

            I believe you. It disgusts me how tainted our government has become. I think everyone in the country KNOWS it has all but destroyed itself, but no one seems to know what to do about it. Include me in that bunch. I do think I know what will have to happen if we want to retain any degree of freedom, but we could lose that skirmish and things would be worse.

      2. Tasine says

        It doesn’t protect us from anything in and of itself. The assumption is that we USE those weeapons when necessary………..instead, the threat of using them is strong, obviously supported by our entire government………using that weapon to defend yourself against Joe Blow is one thing – use it against a tyrant in government, and you are dead on arrival.

        1. howard higgins says

          SOMEBODY FORGOT TO TELL THE PEOPLE THAT IN THE 1700,S

          1. Tasine says

            Yes, but the government at that time didn’t have drones, bazookas, fighter jets, bombs, GPS, armored tanks, assault guns, and armed army, navy, air force, coast guard, national guard. It DOES now. I don’t believe our military or our policemen will fire on innocent people. I don’t believe they will be told anything except that there is proof that X person has been declared a terrorist, has killed people, and must be taken at all costs………..will the cops or military balk when told that and ordered to arrest, shoot if necessary said party?

          2. howard higgins says

            you take a small weapon to get a bigger one same stuff different day

      3. Robert Young says

        Only if he can’t destroy or negate it which he will try to do by declaring Martial Law and any other measures that this Muslim Administration can come up with.

        Thank-You for shedding light on that.

    4. Unique says

      Our Representatives in Washington, D.C. carry guns.
      It is good enough for them but not for we the people.
      They want to protect themselves but we shouldn’t be
      able to protect ourselves according to them.

    5. Tasine says

      Our “government” is currently comprised of psychopaths who don’t give a tinker’s damn what is or is not Constitutional. It is obvious. THEIR power and how much money they can rake in is ALL that counts. Personally, I feel the nation might be able to survive were we to disband our government so that we could all realize our potential without a bunch of elected grifters taking most of what we make, and dictating most of our lives.

      psychopath: a person with a psychopathic
      personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of
      ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme
      egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.

      (“I will die fighting this Tyranny before I’ll EVER give-up like a coward and live on my knees!!!) Sounds real good to my ears Dave.

    7. mallen11 says

      Not only what you say but Jesus Christ also says we should protect ourselves.

    8. Carol Chadbourne says

      Great testimony, Dave…Long live America …and Death to EVIL.

    9. Laurence Almand says

      Correct! Do some internet research about the Nazi Weapons Law of 1938, designed to disarm the people, especially Jews, and the Gun Control Act of 1968 – a virtual copy of the Nazi Law!

    10. dinkerduo says

      I assume you read Glenn Beck’s book *Agenda 21*–if not–do–it will scare the beejeebees out of you! It might have been a little exaggerated but the CONTROL part was spot on as it’s really what they want–a few rich–the rest slaves!
      Glenn had it right 5/6 years ago and I can only think that his family was threatened with death if he continued like he was doing on Fox before he told them to kiss it!!! Ross Parot got out of the race for potus when his daughter was threatened so Glenn must have been too–he was soooo right and Bill O’ Reilly was/is so wrong! This Muslim caliphate seems to be coming true

  2. tax man says

    Dave S. – agree completely. Our biggest enemy is the group sitting in the White House and DOJ right now. We need to protect ourselves from THEM by all lawful means. We shall not give up until our liberty is accepted by all!

    1. Tasine says

      Just don’t forget that it is THEY who write the rules re “legal”, not us. We have no say in the matter. You might like to ask David Koresh of the Branch Davidians – oh, but you cannot. The feds have already killed him and a lot of his followers. Randy Weaver still lives; however. You could ask him. The feds murdered his wife and son because they didn’t like the way Randy and family lived. They were toooooooooo private, and the feds were scared of them; ditto re Koresh.

  3. Greg137 says

    We, have a choice pushback or be ruled…. Keep your powder dry!

  4. otoman says

    “while still protecting public safety.” HEY MORONS, have you looked around DC and seen that with all your gun laws DC is the slum crime capital of the world??? What else? Criminals KNOW they are safe to rape, pillage, and plunder! IDIOTS!

    1. EMIRCITNA says

      These ‘liability-minded’ City Council people actually feel that ‘the police’ are sufficient to “protect public safety” when in truth 90% of the time police write reports AFTER the crime!
      Bottom Line: THE BEST protector of public safety is….THE PUBLIC!!!!

      1. otoman says

        Have you read about the newest sheriff in Detroit? Went as a liberal and NOW encourages all in Detroit to protect themselves by buying a weapon! Detroit crime rate has dropped something like 30%!!!!

        1. EMIRCITNA says

          GOOD NEWS! ~ Indeed a liberal with good common sense is a rarity!

    2. Fred762 says

      They don’t shivvagit bks THEY have armed guards 24/7 paid for by us Joe 6Paks.

    3. billdeserthills says

      Apparently criminals will flock to join others of their ilk. All the biggest criminals who run this nation are clustered in DC, is it any wonder why the rest of the criminals come “home” to roost?

      1. Scouse says

        The part of our Muslim in chiefs mind set that tickles me, he is surrounded by armed Secret Service Agents, his Children? Go to a School which is an armed camp? In DC.
        I take a trip to DC, and have to leave my self defence pistol at home!

        1. billdeserthills says

          Thing that makes me wonder, if just one of those armed security guards shot the evil tyrant, would that be an act of courage, or treason? Really, if You kill off the biggest most treasonous person in the US, wouldn’t that be the act of a hero?

    4. studi30 says

      Washington DC is run by a mayor, city council and the police chief. They are the ones putting roadblocks in the law passed by the Supreme Court. They are still doing it to this day.They put out ordinances making it impossible to open a gun store in the District of Columbia. They threw draconian requirements on classes for gun handling and safety and costs. When the concealed carry law came out in 2008, it at least put a suspicion in the heads of criminals that John Q public could be armed. That is what makes concealed carry so powerful. Criminals want to avoid someone who can fight back. Just as there are not so many armed citizens in the 43 concealed carry States, the criminals don’t want to take the chance.

  5. MikeS says

    Good!

  6. Carl Smuck says

    DC does not need a concealed carry law. DC needs to allow open carry of firearms if anything. The chief of Interpol spoke some common sense not too long ago. He said that everyone worldwide should be armed. He said that would be the way to solve the problem of Islamic terrorism. Does anyone know why that attack a day or two ago happened in Kenya and why so many innocent Christians were murdered? It is because the idiotic Kenyan government does not allow the general population of their country to be armed. If those same Islamic terrorists were trying to pull the stuff in 1960’s Texas that they just did in Kenya everyone in Texas would have been ready to fight them. Islamonazis don’t attack hard targets. If some crazy terrorist version of a Muslim sees you and you are a Christian and you are armed and more particularly if you are in a group with a bunch of other Christians that are armed you will probably never be attacked by the Muslims. Muslims will not attack unless they think they have the upper hand. Kenya is a victim disarmament zone. Kenya needs to arm its Christian majority or it will soon become the minority. Or worse yet become totally eliminated. Once this happens Kenya falls under Sharia law and becomes an enemy of the USA and the rest of the non-islamic world.

    1. WhiteFalcon says

      Australia is in the same boat with Kenya. Those poor people don’t even have the right to have anything in their posession that can be used in self defense as I understand it. Both are nations of victims and potential victims.

      1. Robert Young says

        Under Australian Law as it now exists, Australia would not be a place I would choose to live, which is a shame for most of the Australian people I have met have been wonderful folks.Why they ever allowed their Government to pass gun laws restricting gun ownership for Australian Citizens and after several years of seeing that these laws do not protect their honest Citizens, why have the Citizens not demanded repeal of these restrictive laws?

    2. studi30 says

      In 2008, the Supreme Court in DC v. Heller reversed 30 years of gun prohibition in Washington DC. An individual right was declared and concealed carry was approved. The powers that be, who run Washington, are still fighting to suppress that right with draconian laws governing how a citizen gets a firearm. Washington DC was the illegal gun murder capital of the US until 2010, as concealed carry started to hit the streets, even in such a small way. Criminals are afraid of armed citizens. Now Chicago is the illegal gun murder capital of the US.

      1. billdeserthills says

        Did it Really? All I see in DC is more endless stupid laws and Nobody there is getting a concealed carry permit. Tell me some more how great this wonderful legislation is Again, some more.

        1. studi30 says

          Did I not post that the government of Washington DC was still suppressing the gun laws they were supposed to be creating. Every time they propose a law for the implementation of concealed carry and the 2nd Amendment they stick on roadblocks to upholding the law.

    3. tinkerunique says

      Is that why so many of “them” are being brought to this country. 0’bummer has been importing Muslims into his advisors and into national security positions. There are 20+ “training camps” inside the USA, and little news about them, unless something “explosive” happens.

  7. Joe says

    Clean the wh out and send obama to Kenya

    1. EMIRCITNA says

      ….ONLY AFTER he pays his ‘bill’ for his damages to our country!

    2. Evan says

      That, most certainly, would be my vote! It needs to be done
      before the lying muslim obama can do any more damage
      to America! We haven’t much time left before obama has
      Iran bomb Israel and the US! Better wake up America! Obama
      has NOTHING good in store for us!

    3. Robert Young says

      No, try him for his Treasonous Acts and, if found guilty, execute him.

  8. studi30 says

    The World Health Organization ranks the US at 110th in murders per 100,000 population. At 5 per 100,000 murders with all weapons, not just guns, the other 109 nations above us don’t permit gun ownership at all.

    1. Fred762 says

      Yup

    2. Laddyboy says

      Do the other nations count the gun murders that are done in their countries? Just wondering.

      1. studi30 says

        Most of the murders are done with guns in those countries. Honduras is number 1 with 90 murders per 100,000 with weapons of every kind. El Salvador is number 2. Mexico is up there also.Yes, there are the armed revolutionaries and drug cartels in those countries who kill with their guns, but the AVERAGE CITIZEN can’t own a gun and defend themselves like here in the US. Since we don’t have Communist guerillas living in the US indiscriminately murdering the population, it isn’t the same. The US has the highest gun ownership in the world.

  9. Andrew Owens says

    They want to take our guns ! While they let low life scum stream across the borders,the liberal media doesn’t report all the crimes against American citizens by these low lifes. Who knows how many terror cells are already here waiting to attack unsuspecting Americans.While our president and Holder attack our police we the people will have no choice but to protect ourselves.Obama cares about us as much as he does Isreal,we are on our own !!!

  10. Fred762 says

    Guns have two real enemies: Rust and Politicians. The pol “elitists” in DC are the same ones who rob us daily by passing rules and laws which lead to our impoverishment and slavery..and are the same fools who have taxpayer paid armed guards 24/7…just sayin..

    1. studi30 says

      After Sandy Hook, Obozo tried to get another assault weapons ban into law. This one would have been worse than the 1994 Clinton ban. Most of the Republicans and almost half the Dems voted it down. The worst part was that the Bushmaster was never used by Lanza, according to the Coroner. Obozo the Clown tried to take our guns away on a LIE.

  11. Kimberly Woodard says

    I am happy to see the silent majority standing up for what is right in soooo many ways. For years we have relied on our representatives, while we worked at our jobs to support our families, plan for our futures, reared our children to be law abiding and respectful American citizens. We can’t be silent anymore. Our faith, our culture, our country needs us. The Constitution is being assaulted by liberal socialist democrats who show not only a lack of intelligence but also integrity. Between the embecciles who are out to destroy Christian businesses for their faith and belief in the Word of God, and the morons hell bent on destroying our rights to freedom of speech and the right to LEGALLY own guns; WE the American people who are proud to stand up and shout WE ARE THE MAJORITY AND NO MORE WILL WE BE SILENT will shout loud and clear. And WE THE PEOPLE WILL PREVAIL!!! This IS A CHRISTIAN NATION. IT was founded and dedicated to GOD. The Lord of the Jewish people and Christians.
    AMEN.

      Unfortunately if the “majority were standing up”, then we would be making some headway. We are rapidly losing ground.

  12. freeper says

    It’s a sad commentary that Washington, D.C. is “the city that represents America.”

  13. Michael Penson says

    Freedom Outpost’s Constitutional scholar Ms. Publius Huldah pointed out that there is a little known fact about the Constitution:
    “It is one of enumerated powers only. When “We the people” ordained and established the Constitution, we created the Federal government. It is our creature. We are the creator. It is the creature. It is not our master.”
    “The Constitution is so short,” she continued, because all of the powers enumerated to the Federal government are listed in it. “Depending on how you count, we delegated only 21 powers to the Federal government.” Article 1, Section 8, Clauses 1-16 are those powers.
    Publius Huldah then courageously pointed out that all laws made by Congress, any restrictions imposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, any restrictions made by executive order, and all Supreme Court decisions that restrict firearms are unconstitutional. They are unconstitutional because there is no authority to do so.
    All Federal government gun and ammunition laws should be nullified, ignored and rendered toothless by the people of the States.
    Ms.Publius Huldah then reminds us that the leading cause of death in the 20th Century was Democide – Death by Government. She ran the list of Soviet run Russia, Communist China, Nazi Germany, Cuba, Cambodia, and North Korea. She pointed out that Communist, Fascist and Islamic dictatorships murdered their own people by the tens of millions. “And do not think that isn’t coming this way,” she warned.
    Universal registration leads to confiscation. Confiscation leads to extermination. It always has. Why do you think they [Obama, Clinton and far left wingers (American Haters) ]are so “Hell bent on disarming us?”

  15. tinkerunique says

    TRUTH is that with restricted lawful gun ownership promotes illegal gun ownership and crime.. Most places that have more lawful guns, also have a lower crime rate.

  16. markypolo says

    I notice ALL those worthless POS Democrat Politicians have ARMED secret service agents. Including over 150 agents looking after that Lying, Crooked, Thief BHO. Only DC scum can “legally carry”. Thats “Hope And Change” “We Can Believe In”.

  17. junkmailbin says

    we will be free when all liberal progressives are gone. They never ever quite trying to shovel their crap down our throats

  18. Bud44 says

    If you need to protect yourself learn how to carry a pistol without attracting attention to yourself, a permit will not protect you, a firearm will.

  19. brabbie2002 says

    Sure they have stricter gun laws. They don’t want anyone armed to the teeth that can shoot their beloved corrupt senators and congressmen. Geez, guys! You have to keep these lawless pedophiles, sex addicts, embezzlers, lawyer types safe from the public. And in one place! (heavy on the sarcasm)!!!

  20. william g munson says

    Seems the government is only interested in the rights of criminals and illegals here but not the ones that elect them and pay their salaries PERIOD!

  21. Mynickelsworth says

    Please tell me HOW you can prove that your life is in imminent danger?
    Maybe if you had been shot a few times and recovered it would be enough proof to allow you to get a gun. Just more anti-freedom crap!!!!

    That is Mynickelsworth..and it may not be worth a nickel.

  22. john robel says

    DC stands for the Democrat Cunts that think they run the place.

  23. Tasine says

    The convolutions that politicians regularly make to TRY to make something bad seem like it is for the welfare of the populace amaze and disgust me…….it SELDOM is for anyone’s good except said politician. In my view “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” means “LEAVE IT ALONE!” It does NOT mean “sometimes leave it alone”, “leave some of it alone”, “leave most of it alone”, “leave a teeny bit of it alone.” It is CLEAR: LEAVE IT ALONE. Do not muck around with the 2nd Amendment in any way, shape, or form. Pass all the laws you want re killing someone, threatening someone, harming someone, but you CANNOT CONSTITUTIONALLY ALTER THE 2ND AMENDMENT IN CONGRESS.

    1. canemah says

      To add, the 2nd amendment is the only one to emphasize “shall not be infringed (f84ked with, watered down, or altered).

      I personally feel we should give DC back to the swamp it originally rose from.

    2. billdeserthills says

      Well Well, Constitutionally Eh? WTF Does That Even Mean? It sure as hell doesn’t mean that The second amendment cannot be infringed now Does It? Seems to me like the second amendment gets Infringed in Every State. Even in Arizona where someone can carry concealed without a permit, the Second Amendment is still being infringed Daily. I used to listen to Your words with a stupid smile on my face, but unfortunately Your words are nothing but Lies Today. Keep repeating them, until maybe You have managed to brainwash Yourself.

      1. Tasine says

        There is definitely something wrong with you. Sounds like your panties are in a wad.

        1. billdeserthills says

          Sounds like You are deluding Yourself, well enjoy Your dream and I hope You don’t get dropped upon Your head again.

  24. CrustyOldGeezer says

    The PROOF of imminent danger is the FACT of the federal government has a very bad habit of releasing KNOWN VIOLENT CRIMINALS back onto the Streets of America knowing full well that those violent criminals are still a very real and dangerous threat to the American People.

    The politicians seem to be in fear of their chosen class of people may get shot while attempting to RAPE, ROB, MURDER or commit any of many other violent crimes.

    Perhaps those politicians need to be examined more closely as to the sectors of Society they find to be of value, and those they have no regard for.

    Or maybe an in-depth examination of the AGENDA they are pushing onto the Citizens.

  25. Vernon Cunningham says

    during the past 6 to 7 years of a democrate who has social to communist leanings, we have watched the transformation, not of america, but in how we are governed. Our first line of defense is a weapon, locked and loaded. That is our power, which this government wants to remove. Our scond line is the voting booth. If we choose bad replacements, we get bad results and that is why the legal vote is the only one we can permit. The people have the power if they exercise it properly. But that depends on a true result, not one where ballots are stuffed into the boxes for the power elitists. That brings me to gun control. States think they have the power to make laws that tell us wht our rights are. They do not have that power. The rights are clearly stated. So any secondary laws they issue are counter to what we have as a right. Keep your weapons. They are all that stand between the citizen, and a dictatorship.

  26. Vern Hicks says

    Restrictive?? YOu Cant HAVE a concealed Weapon in the state of New Jersey… and Getting a Permit to Own one is Hard, as they want a letter of Recommendation From Clean Law Abiding Friends of yours

    1. Guest says

      Permit …. For the Grammar Nazi

    2. jim marcum says

      i guess they are trying to protect the N.J. Mafia

  27. adrianvance says

    Is it possible that a little common sense has come to DC?

    Do they finally recognize that terrorists and nutcase assassins

    look for “NO GUNS” signs?

    Google “Two Minute Conservative” for clarity.

  28. Proud US vet/American says

    The continued assault on the 2A is doing nothing but dividing the country and making “law abiding” gun owners resentful towards the government and the President. When the current potentate in office realizes that he can only “push” WE THE PEOPLE so far before we start pushing back, then maybe, things will start to come back into their proper allignment in America.
    GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

  29. James Seidel says

    Washington District of Columbia is not part of the Union. It is Governed by Congress. It should have been pushed into the Atlantic Ocean years ago.

  30. 1LTLos says

    Then you too have to prove that you have a working brain cell in your skull — NO one need prove that they are in danger – That is not codified in the SEcond Amendment — Proving should be left for the Kenyan and Pelosi and Boxer and Feisnstien — that is their sanity and why it is as nearly braindead, they function (dysfunctionally ) as US ellected officers. That is where you need proof. For a CCW blow it out your butt!

  31. 4b4mac says

    Good for Rubio and Jordan. Jordan is long on record as a 2nd Amendment supporter – Rubio?? Could it possibly be that Maro is after a feather for his campaign hat? If so, one must ask yet again – what else is new. But if it works he will; deserve some credit. And Dave S below is spot on. All CITIZENS (onjly) have that right. I’m an NRA lifer. I’ve had the gall to ask the organization why it continues to argue, litigate and contest continually – spending millions of member and industry money when it should be filing suit(s) to bring infringers to trial. Think how much more could be done by ALL the arms bearing proponent organizations were they to spend their monies on greatly enhanced safety and legal responsibilities training – and thousands more facilities for conducting both. NRA could return to the intent of its original charter.

  32. Wayne Thorson says

    Yep, Our ancestors knew how to handle the gun situation. They made them check their guns in at the outskirts of town. God only knows how many lives this saved. They were obviously smarter back then.

  33. Porphyry says

    “Rendered them vulnerable to criminals who could care less what the gun laws are. That’s a beautiful way to put it…”

    Except that El Marco probably meant “*couldn’t* care less.”

  34. Patrick Murphy says

    Just what part of shall not be afringed do the uber left wing unamericans not under stand?It’s sad that they think they can just violate others rights and get away with it.It’s time for the passive christians to stop turning the other cheek and fight back against the injustices set on us by these uber liberals wanting a utopia that can never happen in real life.As a christian if you want to try to take away any of my civil rights then you better bring a lunch as it will not be easy for you.I will fight you at every turn.Nothing in this life was ever meant to be easy and worth having unless you are willing to fight to keep it.It’s time to send obama packing back to the hell hole he came from.I’m sure they are waiting for him there.And take the godless souls here with you.

  35. Carol Chadbourne says

    THERE is a revolution arising concerning the dissing of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Concerning our so called ‘government’ jam packed with traitorous Reps, Sens…..Republican and Democrats alike. People who “swore an OATH to protect ” all things American. IF an American does NOT know by now that we are ‘losing’ EVERYTHING that we hold dear, that made this Country outstanding in the world’s eyes, there is NO hope that they will ever ‘wake up’….however, most of these ‘dissidents’ DO know….and WANT the agenda 21 to succeed. Which, in my humble opinion, is tantamount to TREASON against the STATE, and are our own home-grown terrorists. Therefore, we have EVERY right to PROTECT our Country and our families…and THAT is inalienable. There are more of us who ARE patriots than not. I would much rather DIE for all that is ours, fighting by any and all means possible….including a dog trained to protect his family…a Big dog…a BIG MEAN dog….a BIG, MEAN dog with an avarice appetite to kill EVIL. PLUS a big mean gun. Our Lord and Savior WILL be coming again…the blood moons and drastic change in the elements announce this. The Book of Revelation is happening today…and we best get down on our knees and pray for our Country and Israel NOW, not tomorrow….for TOMORROW has never been promised.

    1. Dan says

      Liberal brainwashing and servitude begins at birth, just like our unalienable rights.

  37. Mark Tercsak says

    2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution : 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 last four words of this Amendment are the most Important, it means in my view that all 20,000 plus guns laws are unconstitutional for they infringe on the people’s right to keep and bear arms and also infringe on the respective states rights to have a well regulated militia that can keep those states Free !

  38. QuisPercusit says

    Neither My ass nor my money shall ever go where my gun cannot. My vote will only be cast in support of the U.S. Constitution, Against all enemies both foreign and domestic. For those candidates who do likewise, and abide by their oath .

  39. Dan says

    That is the only solution to this federal government, the sovereignty of the states!

    It’s funny how Washington DC was the murder capital of the country for years and then when DC Vs Heller got decided it dropped to number 11.

    Guns save lives, period

  43. Laurence Almand says

    Washington DC, of all places, is supposed to be the center of our country, the bulwark of our Constitution, yet the city blatantly tries to nullify the Constitution!
    The people of DC should recall the politicians who have contravened our Constitution and toss them out of office. In view of the huge murder rate in our capital, it is most important to issue concealed carry permits.
    Read the good book EMILY GETS HER GUN, which illustrates the horrendous red tap process citizens have to go through just to secure a carrying permit.

    i was only an anti-politic man, but this old news is very interesting because you and nobody can not do a joke when you are thinking at ruling gun. agario hack android
