HURRAY! MONTANA: Striving For True 2nd Amendment Rights

House Bill 228, is an excellent example of state politicians actually helping out the citizens of their state. All states should adopt this type of legislation. A brief snippet of what this bill contains

  • Clarifies the ability of law-abiding citizens to carry a firearm in plain view and to display the firearm for harmless defensive purposes;
  • Allows a person who can lawfully possess a firearm and who doesn’t use it to commit a criminal offense to carry it concealed anywhere in the state without first obtaining governmental permission.

And it just gets better, this just came to my attention House Bill 246

Committee Approves Gun Rights Bill

"A bill that would require Wyoming judges to warn defendants that they would lose their federal gun rights by pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic violence charges received preliminary approval in the state Senate on Monday."[full article]

This is fine and all, but I am about damn tired of all these "steps" in the right direction.

When are people going to realize how little freedom, we, as individuals, actually have left, and start demanding it back, and then if we don't get it, by God we take it back!

How about a law that requires, no DEMANDS, any and all judges that sit on any bench in the United States of America that they must, under strictest penalty of law fully inform a jury of it's right not only to judge the facts in the case, but the law itself. That they may request a statute of the law to read, and that if they find the law incomprehensible or confusing they may acquit on that grounds alone. Or imagine this, they have the right to even vote with their conscience.

We can go further, how about we start looking at every single law passed since 1912. If the law in any way, shape, form, or fashion, violates any part of the United States Constitution, then anyone who helped to bring this law into being be charged with treason, and brought to trial, and if convicted, face the harshest penalty available for their treasonous actions, which would be death. Yep you heard me since 1912, we even disinter the dead traitors and put their corpse(s) on trial and if convicted we hang the bones from the courthouse steps. It would be a national roundup of traitors to the United States. We could start with all past members of Congress living or dead (I am not a cold hearted bastard, this would give those still serving a chance to change their ways and repeal every single oppressive, freedom violating, Constitutional infringing law they ever passed). Wouldn't this send a message to all future members of Congress.

What? some of you say. This is ridiculous! You are a raving lunatic! Am I? lets look for a minute at, 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256, more commonly known as Unconstitutional Official Acts. It very simply states in layman's terms that, "The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be In agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail...Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it..."

Also let's not forget the fact that every member of Congress takes an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Any action taken contrary to what the Constitution allows is a breach of this oath, and treason against the United States.

I tell you what, before we jump into any hasty actions let's just send a copy of 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256, to each and every one of our state and federal representative with a note that says they have 2 months to act and repeal every law, rule, regulation, etc... that violates the Constitution. If not, "We the People" will start taking action!

Oh Boy, Here We Go!

President Barack Obama's new administration ordered all federal agencies and departments on Tuesday to stop any pending regulations...[full article]

Actually doesn't sound too bad until you consider...

"...rules by the outgoing Bush administration include allowing the carrying of concealed weapons in some national parks..."

Guess it won't be long now...

Quote for the Day

"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possesion and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"-- Patrick Henry
