House members saying NO to ammo ban

In 2nd Amendment by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

m855We’ve all heard the “hype” regarding the BATFE’s prattling about banning the M855 ammunition.  It comes as no surprise to me that Eric Holder is in large part responsible for the attempts at these reverse engineered gun control tactics, but it does come as a surprise that the majority of House members are voicing opinions to the contrary. 

In what seems unprecedented numbers, more than half the members of the House are signing a letter (initiated by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-VA) opposing the BATFE’s measures. Maybe our politicians are getting the message?  Maybe they are seeing the “true” intentions of this administration?  Maybe Eric Holders stated shortcomings; “I take personally as a failure to the inability to pass gun control.” has hit home in the minds of our House members? Whatever the reasons for this seemingly new found patriotism, I’m in full support at their attempt to make Holder a complete failure.

The Building of a Nation: 2nd Amendment History 101

In 2nd Amendment by Patrick James1 Comment

second amendment gun right to bear armsWhat has the average American forgotten in regards to basic American history? Where should we start looking if we want to know true Founders intent when writing the documents that defined our Nation?  Why were they so adamant on maintaining the “right to keep and bear arms” for We the People? These questions abound within the minds of 21st century Americans, and the answers seem pretty “black and white” to me. Especially when looking at them in context to the events that transpired prior, during and directly after we secured our independence and formed “a more perfect union” (a phrase inserted within our Constitution and hijacked by so many throughout the years, including Obama and Jesse Jackson).

The intent of this article(s) is to lay down some of the basic history that is responsible for shaping the minds of those men, the events that led up to the declaration of our soon to be won “independence” from King George’s tyrannical rule while giving the most reasonable interpretation of their words. Using factual quotes and documentation I’ll try to explain the reasons behind the words as it relates specifically to the 2nd Amendment in the most basic language possible.

Moms Demand: Increased Rape with Campus Carry Movement?

In 2nd Amendment by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

1361197410 9995 which sign1682We all know what Shannon Watts has been up to since her invent of Moms Demand Action, no it’s not a “porno” title (they claim we “gun nuts” refer to it as such) and although I do think it’s funny, they are quickly becoming one of the most destructively inaccurate and emotionally biased propagandist groups to ever grace the social media scene. Shannon’s use of sentences like;And who are the NRA’s missionaries in this grotesque campaign to exploit campus rape in order to sell more guns?” her newest attempt at reporting the “news”, is just as “grotesque and garish” at the very least.  Her emotionally charged hyperbole has absolutely no foundation. Shannon knows there are no factual statistics to bolster her claims, so in typical “Shannon Watts” fashion, she “lays it on thick” in hopes that “emotionally” charged readers will take up her torch.

2nd Amendment: A Well Regulated Militia…

In 2nd Amendment by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

A Second Amendment Tutorial: The definition of words may change over time, but the original intent at the time they were written does not.A Second Amendment Tutorial: First let us start with a firm foundation. The definition of words may change over time, but the original intent at the time they were written does not.

The opening words of the 2nd Amendment have fueled more misinterpretation and infringement upon American freedoms than just about any other part of the Constitution. What is “A Well Regulated Militia?” If “the people” have an individual right to “keep and bear” arms, then why start out the 2nd amendment talking about a “well regulated militia?” Do you have to be in a militia to keep and bear arms? It’s actually not as complicated as many would have you believe. In researching this article, even I learned a few things. The best place to start is the beginning. What does “well regulated” mean, or more appropriately, what did it MEAN at the time the second amendment was written?

Can You Hear Me Now? No More Warrantless Searches Of Cell Phones

In Constitution by Steven DennyLeave a Comment

By Steven M Denny, Attorney at Law

A right is something that you take for granted until you need it. People are often surprised when they enter my office to discuss the details of the case the government has brought against them. Clients say “they never read me my rights.” They say “they just kicked the door in without saying who they were.” They say “they put me in a squad car after I refused the search and asked my angry ex-girlfriend if they could search my apartment.” Without fail, every client who asks one of those questions asks this next question:


Unfortunately, the answer is more often than not, “yes.”

Your rights are eroding right under your feet. I wager that most of the people who take the time to read this are not accused of a crime. I suspect many of you have acted as jurors in criminal cases and have seen law enforcement tactics that you knew were questionable but let them get away with it because the defendant “was a really bad guy.” Pay attention, because before long, all the “really bad guys” will be locked up and in comparison, you and I will be the really bad guys because we demand our rights which unfortunately will no longer be there.

Second Amendment Advocacy: Why is it so Important?

In Bill of RIghts by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

Gun rights are the last bastion of liberty left in America.With so many issues vying for our attention on a daily basis, why focus on the 2nd Amendment? I mean really, we have over 300 million souls in America and at least as many guns in circulation. It’s not like they will all disappear overnight or even over the next decade or two, right? Why not focus our energy on more pressing issues?

Well, let me tell you why. Gun rights are the last bastion of liberty left in America. Any honest analysis of America today will show you that virtually ALL of our other liberties, guaranteed by the Constitution, have been all but eliminated. The controlling tentacles of the federal leviathan have encroached upon every aspect of traditional American freedom and liberty. The “right to life” is being aborted in astronomical numbers. The pursuit of happiness, commonly linked to property ownership, is under constant attack through eminent domain abuse, property taxation and EPA regulations to name a few. Free speech no longer exists, having succumbed to the pressures of political correctness. Freedom of religion, or at least religious expression in public, is vilified and shunned. Innocent until proven guilty has been perverted by the media to guilty until proven innocent, especially if a gun was involved. Shall I go on?

Gun Control = Child Abuse

In 2nd Amendment by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

During a conversation last week the subject of kids and guns came up, surprising I know. This is not a new topic for me by any means, but I did hit upon a new perspective on the subject. Gun Control, Gun Restriction, Gun Regulation and Gun Free Zones are all forms of child abuse. Every regulations, restriction and gun control law that gets put on the books adds another phantom brick to a growing FALSE sense of security. Every gun control measure passed makes it easier for lackadaisical parents to justify NOT teaching their kids firearm safety. Governmental obsession with gun control has already removed firearms safety education from public schools for the most part. So, how is all of this child abuse?

Caught in the cross-hairs of duplicity…

In 2nd Amendment by Patrick JamesLeave a Comment

I have had just about enough of Piers Morgan and his asinine rants about the level of violence in our country.  He spews his lies to anyone gullible enough to listen and it seems he has quite the audience (seemingly half the population), because he’s still on the air doing what he does best… stirring up controversy. The man is a bald face liar, citing statistics about his beloved homeland while trying to place his country on the same level as our own.  It’s like comparing apples to oranges.  There is no comparison between the two, none… nada.  Our country is the land of the free, home of the brave while his is one that lives in the shadow of a monarchy.  Ours enjoys freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the privilege, ability and right to bear arms.  England may have less gun violence per capita, but it’s simply because they’ve been disarmed and ruled over by the very same government we beat down and took our independence from.
