Triumph

Triumph


Pundits are pouting; that is, those who are not still in a state of shock. But the Republic still stands.

And, please do not ever refer to the United States as a Democracy, as HRC does. 
"What's the difference?" you ask.

A democracy is mob rule. If the mob consists of three coyotes and a sheep discussing what's for dinner, . . . .

A representative republic, on the other hand, usually makes it difficult to pass legislation, good or bad. This molasses effect tends to protect the rights of the individual. Our republic also includes a Constitution and Bill of Rights (BOR), of which the BOR is designed to protect the individual's rights and liberties. Speaking of the Bill of Rights - - 

Now, its time to further restore the Second Amendment. The Congress needs to pass a national reciprocity bill such as H. R. 402

President-elect Trump told me at the 2015 NRA convention that he would "totally look into it."

He looked into it and here is what he says at his page on Second Amendment Rights
NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.
Congress' Republican majority needs to remember "who brung them to the dance" for a change, pass this long-overdue legislation in January and send it to President Trump!

  1. Why should I have to ask permission and then have to pay someone for what is one of my civil rights?

    1. We agree. See my post- http://www.knoxgunguy.com/2015/06/why-are-carry-permits-bad-idea.html?m=0. But we must deal with current reality as we push for improvements.

  2. Is the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act Constitutional - Its a Trojan Horse..

    The bill is a dastardly trick and a Trojan horse for institutionalizing licenses, permits, national ID cards, etc.

    And the end game of all those licenses, permits, national ID cards and such is eventual confiscation of all arms.

    And after that extermination.


    Here is the 2014 edition: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/senate-bill/1908/text

    Also, the federal government has no constitutional authority to make ANY laws dictating who may and who may not carry arms; or under what circumstances people may and may not carry arms across State borders! Arms control of the people is not an enumerated power!

    video on arms, here it is: https://vimeo.com/60944105

    State concealed carry laws which require a "permit" is an idea crafted in the pits of hell. The real purpose is to register gun owners! People think it is so cool to have a permit for concealed carry - they don't understand that it is like the free sample of heroin.

  3. Concealed carry is not a right, Unconcealed is a right...

  4. I suspect he bases it on what was written in Heller.

    Concealed carry was not rendered illegal until 1830. At that point the Supreme Court ruled that the bill of rights did not apply to the states. Before 1830, there were no laws against concealed carry.

    2. There was a law in Kentucky, it was ruled unconstitutional in 1822 in Bliss v. Commonwealth of Kentucky.
