The Shroud of Gun Control has Fallen

Published

on

“No one is trying to take your guns.”

How many times have we heard this leftist narrative when the subject of gun control comes up? I’ve heard it literally thousands of times. They’ve simply spouted that they want “common sense” measures in place to prevent mass shootings. Of course, when you bring up gun-control cities like Chicago and DC they come up with some excuse as to why it doesn’t work there. One thing always remains the same: “I respect the 2nd Amendment.”

Senator Kamala Harris spoke this very sentence a few weeks ago right before saying “they are killing our babies,” ironically just days after tweeting that Republicans were “immoral” for wanting to ban abortions after 20 weeks, when abortions require a procedure that requires live vivisection of babies who feel pain.

Well, the narrative is over. They don’t respect the 2nd Amendment. They want to repeal it. Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote yesterday that the 2nd Amendment is outdated and should be repealed. Make no mistake, while they may not all admit it, this is how leftists all feel.

In addition to Steven’s statement, just in the last few weeks:

  • The Illinois legislature passed a bill to confiscate guns from 18-20 year olds
  • The GA legislature had a bill introduced to confiscate guns
  • A NC sheriff’s candidate suggested that he was fine confiscating guns from law-abiding citizens by killing them

Some on the left are admonishing these moves and statements, but that is only because they want to maintain the illusion that they don’t share these views. Don’t be fooled, they very much do.

Yes, the left is actually suggesting that people who don’t conform to their ideas on gun control be killed, which is WHY we have a 2nd Amendment in the first place.

What to do

I want to give President Trump the benefit of the doubt when he sought to seek some sort of compromise, but if the Left has proven anything over the last year or so, it is that no compromise will ever mollify them. Therefore, the compromises we’ve already made with the National Firearms Act and other gun control measures are not only enough, but too much. It’s time to start taking back ground, as Missouri Senate candidate Austin Petersen boldly proclaimed to me in a recent interview. We can’t be afraid to say that YES, we SHOULD be able to have weapons of war. That’s what the 2nd Amendment is FOR, to put government in check. We need to stop “gunsplaining” as the Left is now calling it about the difference between automatic and semi-automatic and the difference between ARs and M4s. We should be able to have whatever we damn well please. I don’t have a problem in this day in age with having criminal background checks. Those can be done in a few minutes.

Beyond that, let’s quit playing political defense on this issue and start playing political offense. Otherwise, the Left has made it clear they’ll have us playing violent defense. They’re coming for us, folks. I thought MAYBE we’d have a couple more years, but they’re coming for us NOW. They WANT the totalitarian regime they claim the Trump Administration to be, but they want it under a Barack Obama or a Hilary Clinton or a Kamala Harris. When you have Sheriff’s candidates suggesting they kill citizens to confiscate guns, yeah, it’s time to stop compromising. They aren’t marching for their lives; they’re marching to take ours if we don’t give up our freedom.

    Every Democrat (and Republican?) running 2018 mid terms needs to clarify their stance of gun control and if they want to repeal 2nd Amendment. This could wash out their blue wave in November.

Census case will demonstrate if the Supreme Court is political or not

Census case will demonstrate if the Supreme Court is political or not

There is an unnecessary amount of controversy surrounding whether or not a citizenship question can be added to the upcoming United States census. But now that it’s here, the outcome of the case will say a great deal about the makeup of the Supreme Court and whether or not it has become a body that is driven solely by politics despite the intent of the founders to make sure it never would be.

On the surface, this case seems rather mundane. It’s just a question about the citizenship status of individuals. Some may be wondering what the big deal really is. In reality, it’s a very big deal. Census data is used to determine pretty much everything as it pertains to the relationship between the federal government and the states. Grant money, House of Representative seats, and district allocations are among the many changes that will all be determined by the census.

From a purely political perspective, this should be a no-brainer to conservatives. Of course the question should be included. It’s unfair for states who allow a higher level of illegal immigrants to gain more power as a result. These are not voters (at least they’re not supposed to be). It’s idiotic to give states a great incentives to bring in as many illegal immigrants as possible, so if the presence of a censorship question lowers the numbers reported, that’s not a bad thing.

Politically, the citizenship question is a winning play for conservatives.

But here’s the problem. The judiciary is not supposed to be driven by politics. Their job is to interpret the Constitution and the law of the land to determine how it’s to be enforced by the executive branch and whether the legislative branch is in line with the intent of the Constitution through the laws they establish. By those criteria, the Trump administration has a major problem with the citizenship question. The Census Act clearly states Congress is to be given notice of changes to the census three years in advance. They were not. The citizenship question was not part of the original list sent by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in March, 2017. It was sent in the March, 2018 list, but that’s not enough time for Congress to review if we’re going solely based on the letter of the law.

This is an insanely stupid aspect of the law; it shouldn’t take Congress three years to read a question and determine whether or not they need to make new laws as a result. But it’s the law nonetheless and Ross broke it by not including the question in his original list. It was a rookie mistake made by someone who really shouldn’t be in his position, but what’s done is done.

Part of my heart says the censorship question is righteous and does not violate the Constitution, therefore it should be allowed. But the other part of my heart longs for a judiciary that is truly apolitical, one that does its job as laid out in the Constitution. If that’s the measure of this case, then the Administration clearly did not meet the standards set forth in the law to add the question to the census.

Where I take solace is knowing the balance of political bias within the judiciary favors the left. If it’s impossible to completely remove politics from the judiciary, then any win for conservatism is acceptable just as any loss for conservatism is unwelcome. I desperately want the originalist perspective to prevail in our judiciary, but if such apolitical adherence is only possible when convenient or in a robotic utopia of a truly impartial judiciary, then I’m forced to defer to the side of my heart that says, “Take the win and move on.”

We need the citizenship question in the census, and though I would have preferred to have seen it handled properly by the Commerce Department, I’ll accept a victory on it even if it comes by the hand of conservative bias.

Matthew 22:37 – ‘love the Lord thy God’

Matthew 2237 love the Lord thy God

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. – Matthew 22:37 (KJV)

We’ve all heard this verse, but have we really contemplated it? This is a verse that sits in the middle of many different things happening. The Pharisees and Sadducees were questioning Him. His answers were profound and defining.

This important portion of this message is echoed three times: all. Love thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all they mind. This is the most important Commandment according to Yeshua.

Sign the petition demanding term limits on Capitol Hill

Sign the petition demanding term limits on Capitol Hill

It’s time for term limits. This has been on my heart for some time, but I have held back because there are so many other important issues to cover. Today, I realized if I wait until more pressing issues are solved, I’ll be waiting forever. There are always going to be more pressing issues than term limits, but here’s the thing. Our representatives realize this, too, which is why it’s never given the attention it deserves. They use these other issues as cover to prevent them from having to address the one issue that will affect them the most.

This is my first petition on Change.org. I’ll admit I’ve never been a fan of the site because it is mostly progressive topics on the table, but this is an issue that even progressives should be able to acknowledge as a problem.

Here’s what I posted:

Set term limits for U.S. Representatives and Senators

Corruption is rampant in Washington DC. One of the biggest reasons this is the case is because lifetime politicians have become power brokers, making them the beneficiaries of favors, payoffs, and under-the-table deals. They live in a perpetual state of campaigning rather than focusing on addressing the problems that face Americans.

Term limits were never included in the Constitution because it was expected by the founders that those serving as our representatives in the legislative branch would do so as a duty to be fulfilled rather than a luxurious position of excess. They did not anticipate the electoral benefits of incumbents, nor did the realize the two-party system would polarize the nation to the point that positions could be made essentially permanent.

Power should not be accumulated over the length of a long career. It should be earned through action and earnestly held for a brief period of time. Today, too much power is consolidated in Washington DC, partially as a result of the extended lengths in which our representatives enjoy their tenure.

Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate should be there because they want to serve their country, not because they enjoy being part of the DC Country Club. Term limits are very popular among the people, but Capitol Hill continues to ignore our will by failing to address it. Why should they? Only they can be hurt by it, and it does not behoove them to hurt themselves.

Instead, they continue hurting us.

We demand Congress immediately put together legislation that spells out term limits for themselves. Americans need to know who is willing to suppress their own power for the sake of the nation. This can only happen by bringing legislation to the floor.

Imagine Capitol Hill without the perpetual campaigning. Imagine forcing our representatives to work within a time limit instead of working to stay in the DC Country Club forever. It’s time for term limits in the House and Senate.
