And the LIBS did this for us

06/29/2015

This is gonna drive them right out of their tiny minds!

But, if you boil that SCOTUS decision down to it’s purest essence, there can be no denying that fact. And that purest essence is, to paraphrase a very tiny bit, “if it’s legal anywhere, then it’s legal everywhere”.

Of what do I speak? Constitutional Carry.

But the point is simple and easy to comprehend. If the SCOTUS could create a right that is truly non-existent in the Constitution using the 14th Amendment, then it seems reasonable and logical to use the same Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment and equal protection to extend the concealed carry right to all 50 states.

Now, Col. West is speaking of CCW laws. Let’s take this a bit further, shall we, with the states that allow Constitutional Carry.

If it’s legal anywhere, it’s legal everywhere. Not to mention, the 10th Amendment says if it’s not in the Constitution, it’s up to the states. And the 2nd Amendment is, and it says the right to keep AND BEAR arms Shall Not Be Infringed. Therefore, any restriction on ownership or portage is specifically forbidden. The NFA 1934? Unconstitutional. The GCA 1968? Same. Direct violation of a provision specifically listed prior to the declaration of states rights.

Anyway, go read the Col’s post, you might find it very interesting. One more short clip:

“No free government was ever founded, or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defense of the state…such are a well-regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen.” — Richard Henry Lee

Best Latin terminology I can figure would be “legem mini, ergo legem summat”.

    How dare you argue with facts and logic!

    I’m going to love hearing what sort of legal dumbo jumbo the Democrat Attorneys general will have to come up with to prove that black is white. They’ll hold their breath until their faces turn blue and piss their pants in public before they’ll concede that United States Citizens have a God given, Constitutional Right to keep and bear arms.

    We went through decades of hearing that the 2nd Amendment was a collective right rather than an individual right. All it takes is a plain reading to see it’s an individual right to keep AND BEAR arms.

    I like the “and bear” part in particular. As I read it, at the very least it should make open carry a Constitutional Right and I can easily make the argument for concealed carry also being a Constitutional Right. All we need now is someone ready to be the test case.

    You know, if we actually were as violent as the Libs paint us, wouldn’t we have shot all the Libs by now?

    They also did this heart stopping, stamping and ridiculousness deed!

    No proof of citizenship needed anymore to vote as often as you want, just say you are a citizen according to the Supreme Court.

    “Every time an alien votes, it may not steal an election, but it will cancel out a vote of a U.S. citizen,” Kobach said.”

    This ruling is the last decision We the People to remove the lot of them!

    “Voting-Rights Advocates Get Win at Supreme Court
    By Simone PathéPosted at 3:57 p.m. today

    Monday’s big election law news came from the Supreme Court’s penultimate decision of the term upholding Arizona’s congressional districts.

    But before handing down its last three decisions, the court made voting-rights advocates happy by deciding not to review a different election case.

    “Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents,” Shirley Sandelands, of the League of Women Voters of Arizona, said in a statement Monday.

    The case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al., was about whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship when registering to vote with the so-called “federal form.” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach led the suit against the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, which was an appeal of a lower court decision.

    Both Kansas and Arizona have state laws that require applicants to prove their citizenship when applying to vote with state forms (for state or federal elections). But the U.S. EAC denied the states’ requests to have their citizenship laws applied when would-be voters use the standardized federal form.

    The Supreme Court had already ruled in 2013 that state proof-of-citizenship laws couldn’t be applied when people try to register with the federal form. The states’ direct request to the EAC was a last-ditch effort to get around that.

    By not hearing the case, the Supreme Court effectively upheld the decision of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled against Arizona and Kansas in November 2014, saying the EAC did not have to modify its form to meet state laws. Under the federal form, would-be voters need only swear under penalty of perjury that they are citizens.

    “This is a very big deal,” University of California Irvine Law Professor Rick Hasen wrote on his election law blog Monday. “Kobach had the potential to shift more power away from the federal government in administering elections toward the states,” he added.

    In a joint statement, the League of Women Voters of Arizona and Kansas and the Brennan Center for Justice praised the court for “reaffirming the important role Congress plays in preserving a fair voter registration process across the country.” The LWV, represented by the Brennan Center and several law firms, was a defendant in the case with the EAC.

    “This is an important win for the National Voter Registration Act and an important step forward in making sure that all that are eligible are registered to vote,” President of the League of Women Voters of the U.S. Elisabeth MacNamara said in a statement.

    But Kobach still hopes states’ authority will be recognized.

    “Our position in court is that we’re exercising our state’s right to define the qualifications of electors,” Kobach told CQ Roll Call Monday afternoon. “By creating this loophole, the federal agency is interfering,” he said in reference to the EAC.

    Kobach emphasized the court’s decision not to review the case does not reflect its opinion on the issues of the case.

    “The Supreme Court decision not to review was not particularly surprising given the fact that there was no circuit split yet,” the secretary of state said.

    Typically, Kobach continued, “the Supreme Court favors reviewing decisions where one circuit has gone one way and another circuit has gone another way. It appears that the Supreme Court is waiting for another circuit to weigh in.” He expects the 11th circuit, which he said has jurisdiction over two states with similar proof-of-citizenship laws, to eventually get involved.

    The Kansas and Arizona laws stand, meaning that people wishing to register to vote with state forms are required to show proof of citizenship. Kobach said more than 99 percent of Kansans use the state forms. “But because of the Supreme Court decision not to review the case,” he added, “we do have a small limited loophole.” The slim majority that uses the federal form can “refuse to provide proof of citizenship,” he said, “but that will only suffice for federal elections.”

    Kobach said he’ll be sending another request to the EAC, but that that request will be presented differently from the state’s previously denied request.

    “Every time an alien votes, it may not steal an election, but it will cancel out a vote of a U.S. citizen,” Kobach said.”

    Dr. Jeff

    You really do underestimate the mendacity of “liberals”. Look at the sophistry they engaged in to turn “exchanges established by HHS” into “exchanges established by the state”. To turn a penalty into a tax and in Kennedy’s vacuous law free opinion “an institution governed by the states” in US v Windsor nullifying DOMA to asserting a previously disavowed federal authority to regulate marriage.

    Logic has nothing to do with it as you well know. The will to power is paramount.

    The republic is being murdered by these dishonest freaks and thugs who now openly and brazenly exhibit their contempt for the people to impose their desired results. Those who continue to think we are going to win the day with pithy arguments are sadly delusional. The secular humanist Church of State is filled with psychotic zealots who like the Moro in the Philippines need a higher caliber to stop their weapons grade hatred.

    Again way too many bien pensants ass clamps who make up the so called “conservative intellgentsia” are busy in full scale retreat saying how the court imposed definition of words and intellectual hypocrisy are “really good” as they take these issues off of the table. These are the first people we need to put in their place as they cede more and more of of the intellectual and moral battle space to the point they make the Pusan Perimeter look like the Great Plains. We need to seize the initiative and call this what it is a cultural and political coup. Just like with the fight against Islam you cannot win until you first identify the enemy and their intent.

    No more sugar coating and trimming. No more toleration of the intolerable.

    Our work is cut out for us.

    Indeed it is, and we know the penalty for treason.

    Fine. You don’t need to prove you’re a citizen to vote in federal elections. Doesn’t stop the states from requiring you be a citizen to vote in LOCAL elections. And since they’re on the same form, simply insist that photo ID be provided for those.

    One would have thought so. Never too late to start…

    FX, trust me, I don’t underestimate the mendacity of the Libs. It took 50 years to finally put away the idea of a collective 2A and that was written plain language. It actually takes logic and consideration of reality to extend it into concealed carry.

    To point up the wonders of the Liberal mind, I just found this over at Gateway Pundit. Liberals aren’t liberal, they’re violent and intolerant, screaming, childish, self centered, haters.

    Psychotic filth. Time to just let them get on with it. Pull the cops out, only send them back in with meatwagons to pick up the bodies, then right back out.

    I confess kind-of, to be naive to the vast (all) takeover of the media by un-Americans.

    This should have been front page, but it is no-where to be found! Not on Fox Nation, The Blaze, Breitbart, WND, forget NBC, ABC and CBS, not one announced it.

    WE the People have been played as fools, that some are not. Now, who the hell cares?

    Indeed. Well, we knew they passed gay marriage nationwide. Only a few of us took it to that next level.

    This should end Hillary’s run for president and put in jail for life, but then again she is progressive democrat.

    “Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA)

    Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is demanding that the Department of Justice answer questions about Hillary Clinton’s role in the 2010 deal that gave the Russian government, through its wholly owned nuclear energy company known as ARMZ, a controlling 51 percent interest in Uranium One, the Canadian company that at the time owned 20 percent of U.S. uranium deposits.” Much more=

    “Should” being the operative word.
