Welcome to the American Revolution II

Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

Anti-Gun Senate to Ban Private Gun Sales

Anti-Gun Senate to Ban Private Gun Sales

Sens. Frank R. Lautenberg (D-NJ), Jack Reed (D-RI) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) have joined Paul Helmke, President of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and victims and family members of the Virginia Tech tragedy, to introduce legislation to eliminate the private transfers of firearms and close the nation's "gun show loophole."

"There is no rational reason to oppose closing the loophole. The reason it's still not closed is simple: the continuing power of the special interest gun lobby in Washington" Sen. Lautenberg said ignoring the Constitution.

P.S. Take the Emergency Gun Survey let us know where you stand. Did you know that since Barack Obama was elected President 3 people make a donation to an anti-gun group every minute?

Lautenberg went on to add still more to the "90% Obama Mexican Gun Lie":
"Thirty percent of the guns that go to Mexico are bought at gun shows." With NO supporting evidence Lautenberg continued, "We don't know whether they're bought from unlicensed dealers, but logic would say let's have some idea who it is that bought those guns and what their intentions might be."
Lautenberg and the Gun Grabbers in the Senate are also lying about the Virginia Tech gunman who had a background check at a legal gun store to justify themselves. There were abundant warning signs that he posed a serious threat to the campus. Yet he was running loose because the gun check system failed.


Independence Institute researcher David Kopel has written about the "gun show loophole," concluding that it is a myth: Says Kopel:
"Despite what some media commentators have claimed, If a dealer sells a gun from a storefront, from a room in his home or from a table at a gun show, the rules are exactly the same: he can get authorization from the FBI for the sale only after the FBI runs its "instant" background check"

The Bureau of Justice Statistics report entitled "Firearms Use by Offenders" found that less than one percent - 0.7%, to be exact - of guns used in crimes originated at gun shows.


New York (D) Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand proposed computerized background checks be retained creating a de facto gun registration system and Lautenberg's Bill proposes private transactions be added to this registration system.


Motives for eliminating gun shows are twofold:

First, gun shows are a powerful tool in defeating gun control legislation.

Second, eradicate the gun show and gun culture altogether.

All that seems to be on the minds of the Anti-Gun Senators and at the offices of gun control extremists is figuring out how to exploit tragedy to erode and eventually destroy the right, and the means, of self-defense.

Now the Anti-Gun Coalitions are trying to use tragic events to destroy gun shows and the right of all Americans to keep and bear arms to protect themselves under the law. They are attacking and hiding behind an Anti-Terrorist Agenda while getting political and financial support from:

George Soros a Hungarian-born billionaire bank rolling efforts with his check book and spending more that $100 million to destroy the Constitution.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (CA) admitted that "guns would be banned and confiscated" if she could have her way.

The United Nations actively pushes globalism seeking to disarm all Americans.

We must Stop the Anti-Gun Coalition and get ready for the biggest gun control fight of the year from coast to coast. We can not do that without your support.

Stand up against this attack! Stand up for the right to not only defend yourself, but to defend your family, your children, your friends, and your classmates!
Like all other threats against our freedoms, we must rise and defeat this bill, slap it down hard.

The legislation is cosponsored by Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Charles Schumer (D-NY), John Kerry (D-MA), Ted Kennedy (D-MA), Carl Levin (D-MI), Ben Cardin (D-MD) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ).

In order to stop Schumer, Kerry and Kennedy and there fellow gun-grabbers-we need to let the Congress know with thousands of faxes telling them to leave guns alone.

Americans like you who understand what our Founding Fathers envisioned for our nation...and who are willing to fight to defend our Constitution and for what it stands.

So please, help the Citizens Committee and me defeat those who wish to gut and trash the United States Constitution.

Help me flood the U.S. Senate with a sea of FAXES big enough to drown each and every Senator willing to vote away the Second Amendment.

CALL PRESIDENT Obama, 202-456-1111 and 202-456-1414 expressing your disdain and ABSOLUTE REJECTION of all GUN BANS.

Keep calling your Senators today, toll free numbers include 1-877-851-6437 and 1-866-220-0044, or call toll 1-202-225-3121 AND REGISTER YOU'RE OUTRAGE at ongoing efforts to take guns away!


NOTE: We need TENS OF THOUSANDS of faxes and PHONE CALLS and EMAILS delivered to ALL Senators right away!

Please let me know your decision right away. Thank you.

VIN SUPRYNOWICZ: Obama 'bitterly clinging' to his fake gun numbers

American gun owners, en masse, are "casting their ballots" on how much they believe Barack Obama's campaign-trail promise to "not take away your guns."

They're driving the price of ammo through the roof, swarming gun shows, hauling away cases on hand trucks, leaving the floors of the ammo suppliers' booths as naked as a wheat field after the locusts pass through.

Glen Parshall at Bargain Pawn in North Las Vegas reports "I got 20,000 (rounds of) .223 on Saturday and by Tuesday it was more than half gone. And that's only because I limit customers to a thousand rounds per day, otherwise I'd be out already."

And are the shortages just in the popular light rifle-calibers -- .223 and 7.62X39?

"No," Glen reports. "The shortage is total."

Industry newsletters report that should demand drop to normal, it would still take a full year or more to bring inventory levels up to normal in local gun stores.

The hoplophobes -- now nearing a veto-proof majority in Congress with the defection of Arlen "Magic Bullet" Specter -- don't have to "take away our guns" if they can ratify some kind of international treaty (bypassing and overruling U.S. statute) that bans ammunition reloading as "manufacturing without a license" and then drives the price of ammunition through the roof by requiring every bullet and brass cartridge to bear some kind of "unique identifying number," supposedly for the use of police in tracking "weapons used in crimes."

(Naw, no bad guy would ever simply use stolen rounds, the way they use stolen cars with stolen license plates as getaway cars.)

Larry Pratt, head of Gun Owners of America, asks "Remember candidate Barack Obama? The guy who 'wasn't going to take away our guns'? Well, guess what? ... A week ago, Obama went to Mexico, whined about the United States (and bemoaned before the whole world) the fact that he didn't have the political power to take away our semi-automatics. Nevertheless, that didn't keep him from pushing additional restrictions on American gun owners.

"It's called the Inter-American Convention Against Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms. ... This imponderable title masks a really nasty piece of work.

"First of all, when the treaty purports to ban the 'illicit manufacture of firearms,' what does that mean?" asks Pratt in a late April GOA release.

"Illicit manufacturing" of firearms is defined as "assembly of firearms [or] ammunition ... without a license ... " "Hence, reloading ammunition -- or putting together a lawful firearm from a kit -- is clearly 'illicit manufacturing.' "

Article VI of the treaty requires "appropriate markings" on firearms. "It is not inconceivable that this provision could be used to require micro-stamping of firearms and/or ammunition -- a requirement which is clearly intended to impose specifications which are not technologically possible or which are possible only at a prohibitively expensive cost," says GOA.

And Article XI of the treaty requires the maintenance of any records, for a "reasonable time," that the government determines to be necessary to trace firearms. "This provision would almost certainly repeal portions of McClure-Volkmer and could arguably be used to require a national registry or database" -- gun registration, the GOA warns.

Meantime, the Libertarian Party points out even the statistics used by Mr. Obama to supposedly justify his "emergency need" to "block the flow of arms to Mexico" are bogus.

"Is Barack Obama 'bitterly clinging to falsified numbers' in his bid to push his anti-gun treaty?" asked the Libertarian Party in an April news release.

"This war is being waged with guns purchased not here, but in the United States. More than 90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States," Mr. Obama said in a face-to-face April meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderon in Mexico City.

But that claim, the LP points out, "is blatantly false. According to information supplied by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives the real number is closer to only 17 percent.

"There is a reason Obama is intentionally spreading false information about American firearm businesses," says Donny Ferguson, Libertarian National Committee Communications Director. "He ... promised anti-gun groups he would enact gun bans and is hoping to scare people into voting away their own rights. ...

"ATF Special Agent William Newell tells Fox News that between 2007 and 2008, around 11,000 guns used in Mexican crimes appeared to come from the United States and were submitted to the ATF for tracing. Of those, only 6,000 could be successfully traced. Of those, only 5,114, according to testimony in Congress by William Hoover, were found to have come from the United States.

"Obama's '90 percent' number refers, not to the percentage of 'guns recovered in Mexico,' as Obama claims, but to the 'percent of the traced firearms' according to an ATF spokeswoman.

"Mexican authorities report that in those two years, a total of 29,000 guns were recovered at 'crime scenes.' That means 68 percent of the guns recovered by Mexican police did not even appear to come from the United States. That means only 5,114 out of 29,000 guns used in Mexican crimes were found to have come from the United States," the Libertarians conclude. "That figure would be 17 percent, not the 90 percent repeated by Obama.

During his term in the Senate, Obama earned an "F" rating from Gun Owners of America, as well as from the National Rifle Association. In an April 11, 2008, campaign speech in San Francisco, Obama claimed gun owners are simply "bitter," racist people who "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them."

"Obama is 'bitterly clinging' to falsified numbers, hoping he can take away the constitutional rights of 'people who aren't like' him," The Libertarian Party concludes.
