Constitutionally passionate citizens of New York State debate with the “public officials” in a Buffalo, New York town hall meeting on the recently passed and wildly ironically named “Safe Act.” From the fire in the eyes and voices of the gun owners of New York, it is clear that they are not going to submit, not going to register themselves or their arms, not going to be disarmed, and not going to give an inch.
As Thomas Jefferson an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States from March 4, 1801 – March 4, 1809 said “Does the government fear us? Or do we fear the government? When the people fear the government, tyranny has found victory. The federal government is our servant, not our master!”
This so-called Safe Act is driving that state toward a state of revolution, civil war, or perhaps secession by the more rural areas. It is driving the gun owners toward a direct conflict with any police who dare try to enforce this unconstitutional abomination. The semantics or word play of the Act are anything but safe.
Many audience members made it clear they would not comply. One man said:
“I get a sense, from the audience here, that there’s not allot of enthusiasm for compliance. So, my question would be, are there prisons being opened up for those of us who won’t comply? are there going to be additional courts, to handle those of us who say ‘No, this is an unconstitutional law’?”
Today New York Daily news reported today that Governor Cuomo has quietly been seeking to raise $5 million to finance an array of television ads promoting his agenda — and he is doing it apart from a secret lobbying outfit that sparked controversy in the past.
In recent weeks, Cuomo has approached his traditional donors, public and private sector unions as well as a host of mega-donors and check-writers from the business elite, including uber-rich liberal activists George Soros, Agnes Gund and Bernard Schwartz, sources said.
The governor, sources said, has also told potential donors he is considering ads to defend his new gun regulations, now increasingly under political attack. Many Republicans, the National Rifle Association and a host of upstate county legislatures are bent on repeal of the gun-reform bill, passed with great fanfare in January.
reason that Alex Jones was invited to the Piers Morgan Show was because well over 100,000 signatures were submitted in a petition supporting the deportation of Piers Morgan on the Whitehouse.gov website.
This petition was made due to the CNN hosts controversial remarks about taking guns away weeks ago, in in lieu of the tragic Dec. 14, 2012 massacre in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 20 schoolchildren and six teachers and administrators. The mass shooting sparked calls for tighter gun control measures, especially for military-style assault weapons like the ones used in Newtown and in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting earlier this year.One has to ask.. Is the 2nd Amendment (right to bear arms) in jeopardy? Ever since then gun shops across U.S. continue ringing off the hook. Demand for firearms, ammunition and bulletproof gear has surged.
Governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo (D), already discussed the possibility of a buy-back law for his state and made clear it would be a forced buyback. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that she and other gun control advocates are considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners, a proposal that could be compulsory. On December 19th, 2012 US President Barack Obama called for “concrete proposals” on gun control by the end of January, saying “words need to lead to action”. In remarks at the White House, Mr Obama said Vice-President Joe Biden would lead an exploration of options.
In a petition launched this past Wednesday on the White House’s “We the People” Web page may increase pressure on President Barack Obama as his administration considers using executive orders to institute nationwide gun-control measures.
“The president is going to act,” Biden said, seated next to Attorney General Eric Holder, before meeting with victims of gun violence and gun-safety groups this Wednesday. Groups represented included Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Arizona for Gun Safety and the Campaign to Keep Guns off Campus.
Biden referred to an “executive order, executive action that can be taken,” before noting that “we haven’t decided what that is yet.”
Australia implemented a mandatory buyback program in 1996 following a mass shooting. “The law banned semiautomatic and automatic rifles and shotguns and put in place a mandatory buy-back program for newly banned weapons,” USA Today recalls. “The buyback led to the destruction of 650,000 guns.”
Some liberal activists want the policy imitated here. “That would be like destroying 50 million guns in America today,” the Center for American Progress’ Matt Miller wrote after noting that Australia eliminated 20 percent of the weapons in the country.
Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence and the third President of the United States from March 4, 1801 – March 4, 1809. Below are some very fitting Jeffersonian quotes that reveal the gravity of what is being discussed when the logistics of the 2nd Amendment ever comes into question.
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” “The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it.”
