We The People Will Keep Our Arms. Thank You.

2A-Social-ResponsibilityKilling, murder, is not a good thing.  It is evil-intentioned.

However, every time there is a mass shooting the gun-grabbers take to the media calling for banning the Second Amendment, or in some way infringing on our unalienable and Constitutionally guaranteed right to bear arms.

The fact is … guns do not kill people.

People. Kill. People.

People do use guns as an instrument of death. But they also use knives, poison, and with myriad other devices and methods. Though no one calls for banning those.

When a drunk or even sober driver takes to the road and fatally injures someone no one blames the car or truck or whatever they were driving. They blame the driver, the person.

Rightfully so.

Why is it different with guns?

All Second Amendment supporters know why the Second Amendment was written.

It wasn’t so people could go hunting.

It wasn’t so people could participate in sporting events.

It wasn’t so people could only defend their homes.

However, these are the main talking points politicians, judges, celebrities and others claim as the reason We the People do not need a 30-round clip, or an “assault rifle,” or, or, or.

They are either lying when they say these things, or are very ignorant of our history, or have a very specific agenda to take away arms for power and control.

Our Founders were very adamant about our Second Amendment.  The primary purpose as stated, is for the “security of a free state.”

2A-Flag-MadisonAs Founder Richard Henry Lee said, “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”

Tench Coxe, another Founder stated it this way, “Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.”

And several other Founders voiced similar thoughts.

Yet, those very same people who want to take guns away say that tyranny and the like could never happen, it is an out-dated notion.

Wrong.

Tyranny will ONLY never happen as long as We the People keep our arms.

2A-British-are-ComingTaking guns away from law-abiding Citizens does NOT make any city, county or state safer.  Just check those areas that have the strictest gun laws and you will generally find higher murder rates than the norm.

So, if people kill people, go after those people.  Whether they used a gun or a knife or a hammer, go after the person.

Do not come after arms of American Citizens who are, by-and-large, peaceful and do follow the law.

Closing with the thoughts of Founder St. George Tucker, “Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”

Think Adolf Hilter, Mao Tze Tung, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, etc.

We the People will keep our arms. Thank you.

The entertaining and informative In Search of Liberty movie is a great refresher (if it’s been a while) or educational tool (for those who know very little) about our U.S. Constitution, and is a movie that All Americans should watch.

Politicians Encouraging/Harboring Illegals Should Be In Jail

SUMMARY: Any and all elected representatives who encourage and/or harbor illegal immigrants are violating United States Code and should be removed from office (with no benefits) and jailed, as per the law.

Especially ANY politician who supports sanctuary cities, counties or states should be in jail:

Title 42 - United States Code
Boston Public Library

According to the US DOJ website and our laws:

“1907. TITLE 8, U.S.C. 1324(A) OFFENSES

“Harboring — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) makes it an offense for any person who — knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that an alien has come to, entered, or remains in the United States in violation of law, conceals harbors, or shields from detection, or attempts to conceal, harbor, or shield from detection, such alien in any place, including any building or any means of transportation.

“Encouraging/Inducing — Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) makes it an offense for any person who — encourages or induces an alien to come to, enter, or reside in the United States, knowing or in reckless disregard of the fact that such coming to, entry, or residence is or will be in violation of law.

sanctuary_cities“With regard to violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1)(ii)-(iv) and (v)(ii), domestic transportation, harboring, encouraging/inducing, or aiding/abetting, the basic statutory maximum term of imprisonment is 5 years, unless the offense was committed for commercial advantage or private financial gain, in which case the maximum term of imprisonment is 10 years.”

There are currently more than 200 “sanctuary” cities, counties and states on record in these United States. That means that the elected representatives of each of those “sanctuary” locations have violated, minimally, Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iii) by harboring illegals, while some violate Subsection 1324(a)(1)(A)(iv) by encouraging them.

Examples of violations of the above United States Codes are bountiful, but one of the most visible is Nancy Pelosi who brags about her city, San Francisco, being a “sanctuary” city and how they are better for it.  She is assisting in harboring those in our country illegally.

Another is Chuck Schumer who vocally encourages illegal aliens to enter the United States without any form of vetting or background check.

Jerry Brown is, of course, very much in violation.

In addition to breaking the law, these politicians who encourage illegals to enter and then harbor, and take care of, them are doing so with taxpayer (i.e., hard-working USA Citizen) money, to the estimated tune of over $80 Billion per year.

Elected officials were voted in to represent us not to break the law and spend us into oblivion.

They must be held accountable for their illegal actions!

Free Speech and what it means to be an American

The rhetoric has increased as officials and players from both the National Football League (NFL) and National Basketball Association (NBA) deliver their messages to President Trump, responding to what #45 has said about people, especially athletes earning millions, who then disrespect the US Flag and the thousands upon thousands of service men and women who have died to protect our Freedoms.
Trump US FlagMany people cite Colin Kaeperneck as the person who sparked this, yet it seems that Hillary Clinton is actually the one who really set this country on a collision course between the left and right.  That she could accuse Trump of being a racist, misogynist, etc., and those labels accepted as fact by her followers shows how blind these people are.  If Trump oppresses blacks, women and others as Hillary claims why do so many of those people work with him, and in key areas of his business and administration?

If Trump is really a misogynist why on Earth would he have had a woman running his campaign for President of the United States of America? Why would a black woman run the Eric Trump Foundation? There are numerous examples to cite how and why the labels plastered upon him by Hillary are simply not true.  The video below by Lynne Patton really tells a different story than what Hillary spews.

When #45 stated that NFL players should be fired for disrespecting the US Flag I tend to agree with him.  A football player, a basketball player, a musician, when they are on their stage and being paid, they are being paid to ENTERTAIN us, nothing more, nothing less.  If they wish to speak up about what they perceive as social injustices then they should do it on the right platforms, get booked on national radio or TV and cite evidence of the oppression and who is actually doing it.

Colin stated, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”  Sorry, Colin, the United States is NOT oppressive. There are people who are, yes, but not the country as a whole.

When Steph Curry blindly accepts Hillary’s and Barack’s condemnations about our president and says he does not wish to visit the White House, fine. Don’t go. But don’t expect me to support you anymore because of your blinded beliefs that the president is the cause of our discontentment, our current division. Your pal LeBron called #45 a bum. Real class, Bron. You are losing all respect I have had for you (and what you do for your community). You, too,  are blinded by Hillary and Barack.  Barack is a Socialist, and an advocate for One World Order and the freedom we have here and now will not be available in that world.

Hillary is a traitor, she committed Treason against the United States.  She left people to die in Benghazi and lied about it.  She used an unsecured server and Blackberry and lied about it for months.  She is a chronic liar. Remember when she was running for president in 2007-2008 and claimed, “I remember landing under sniper fire in Bosnia.”  This was proven a lie with video footage, all was peaceful.  When she and Slick Willie left the White House in 2001 they had taken $190,000 in valuables that were not their property, i.e., they stole the items. And, yet, you supported her for president.  Steph, Bron, why on Earth would you do that?  How could you do that?

Open your eyes and take a real look at what is happening.  The Oakland Warriors stated, “in lieu of a visit to the White House, we have decided that we’ll constructively use our trip to the nation’s capital in February to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion—the values that we embrace as an organization.”

Let us discuss what they want to celebrate: “equality, diversity and inclusion.”

What do you call a college campus that cancels speaking engagements by conservatives?  And this week they cancelled “Free Speech Week.”  Why did the Oakland Warriors or, better yet, Steph, not speak out against UC Berkeley for their blatant disregard and disrespect for the First Amendment?   Seems quite hypocritical to me.

These athletes could learn a few things by listening to two-time heavyweight champion and Olympic Gold Medalist George Foreman, who criticized people such as Kaepernick for kneeling during the National Anthem, and who said, “A lot of [Americans] died in war so that they could have that privilege.  We all came in the era where we were patriotic.  The greatest day of my life was when I put on the colors, representing the United States.”

Foreman added, “I love the United States, and I love the flag.”

Let me state, for the record, that I am a Patriot.  I am also a direct descendant of Chief White Hair of the Osage Indian Nation.  And, I am related to Patrick Henry and deeply believe in his words:  “I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”  It is because of Henry, James Madison and a handful of others that we actually have the Bill of Rights because the US Constitution, as originally written, did not lay out individual rights.

And, even though our country may be flawed because of individual agendas by people who are suppressive and oppressive to others, not just minorities, it is still the best country in which to live and raise a family.

I am sorry, but if you disagree with that statement above, then you should move to whatever country it is you feel is better.  Period.

Peaceful protest is fine, but on a stage where you are paid millions per year to entertain, it is, in my humble opinion, totally inappropriate to disrespect the US Flag and the men and women of our military who have kept – and do keep – us free.
