Even I Didn't Hear About This Vote

Apparently there was vote in the Senate to prevent the U.S. from surrendering our Constitutional rights as regards gun ownership to the U.N.Fortunately it passed by a vote of 53 to 46. Needless to say it nevr got any play that I saw in the press.

Below is a list of the 46 shitbirds, most of them the usual suspects, who are so fucking desperate to get gun control of any type passed, that they were willing to cede our rights to the U.N.

Below is the wording of the bill that keeps us out of the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, and as I stated above, a list of the miserable bastards that voted against it.

53-46 vote

The U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION, DISARMAMENT ---”
HOORAY - 53-46 vote - The U.S. Senate voted against the U.N. resolution.

Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known !! See below . If you vote in one of the states listed with these 46 “legis..traitors”… vote against them.

In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads: "To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty." The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.

Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.

Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.

You really can't make this shit up. California's leading anti-gun state level politician arrested for gun trafficking.

And this hypocritical waste of a life did it because he wanted the money to run for the California State Attorney General's office.

Want To Vote? Get a Fuckin' I.D.

That's what the Federal Courts say, and it's about goddamned time. Last time I checked, I needed I.D just to get a Library Card. As for the people who say that "Voting is a right", my response is possessing a firearm is also a right (you know, that damned pesky, inconvenient 2nd Ammendment). But all you fucks (and you know who you are) still think anyone who wants a gun should present I.D. and have a background check. Tha's OK, right?

So which is it you Hypocritical, phony bunch of shits?

Holder and the DOJ are still deciding how to handle this court defeat. i can't wait to see how this shakes out.

We Live In Interesting Times

As the old Chinese curse goes (More or less). Upheaval in Eastern Europe, North America, and in Britannia. The annexation of the Crimea to Russia is essentially a done deal no matter what Obummer and the European Union say.

The Parti' Quebecois is poised to take control of the Provincial government again for the first time in ten years and they are sure to push for an Independent Quebec and might actually pull it off this time.

And last but certainly not least, it appears that Scotland is about to vote on splitting from Great Britain

Oh wait! I almost forgot, there's even some action in Southern Europe on the Mediterranean. Venice is fed up and wants to be free of the rest of Italy. Who knew?

WOW!! It looks like everybody's pissed off these days.

Interesting times indeed.

Is The NRA Effective?

A lot of people knock the NRA calling them sellouts, ineffective, money grubbers, etc. They talk about the GOA, JPFO, etc.

So tell me, what legislation have those last two groups ever gotten passed or stopped? What court cases have they initiated and won?

They mean well and they try to do things, but they simply don't have the history, the membership, or the financial wherewithal to take on the well organized groups that think the 2nd Amendment should be either ignored or taken out of the Constitution.

Why do anti gun groups go after the NRA? Because they know that the NRA have the experience, the finances and the practical attitude to do what it takes to protect the rights that gun owners care about. Sometimes they win, sometimes they delay or break even, and sometimes they lose. Heller was a win but some gun owners piss and moan because owning a firearm in Chicago is still not that easy to do as a result of delaying actions by the municipal government in Chicago. But so far every roadblock they've thrown up has been taken to court and knocked down. They've probably got a few more tricks up their sleeve, but simply because of the Heller decision they will eventually lose.

Illinois was forced by a recent court decision to start issuing CCW's. I'm sure they'll find a way to stall, but as long as pro gun groups, backed and/or supported by the NRA keep hammering away, eventually Illinois will cave.

The anti gun groups did not get all the things they have succeeded at by going out one time, losing, and then grumbling about how they lost. They were persistent, they were organized and they were patient.

Pro gun people have to take the same attitude or else we will lose.

Some people are asking why the NRA didn't initiate a law suit over the Conn. gun control laws that were recently instituted in the wake of the Newtown killings. Why is the current lawsuit being brought by local in-state groups instead.

Below is paragraph taken from the NRS-ILA blog about the issue that sums up the answer to that question quite succinctly.

"NRA is currently backing a lawsuit, Shew v. Malloy, to challenge the constitutionality of several provisions of the law, including its expanded bans on semi-automatic firearms and its restrictions on magazine capacity. Some have wondered why NRA has not appeared as a named plaintiff in the suit. Simply put, experience has often shown that NRA is more effective in lending its expertise and resources, rather than its name, to litigation. Many within the legal elite have been slow to embrace the fundamental, individual rights protected by the Second Amendment, and getting a fair hearing on these matters is difficult enough. When NRA participates in a legal case as a plaintiff, its involvement attracts a traveling media circus eager to criticize and attempt to discredit whatever it does. This can further inhibit courts from giving the merits of the case a thorough and impartial hearing. Unlike some groups who will eagerly tout their participation in any "gun rights" case, no matter how ill-advised or unlikely to succeed, NRA is more interested in advancing our Second Amendment freedoms through litigation, rather than just using lawsuits for publicity or fundraising purposes."

Direct and to the point. A strategy based on prior experience gained through previous lawsuits. If you're a gun owner these days, the NRA is the best thing you've got going for you if you want your civil rights to be upheld.

I will now get off my soapbox.

Russia Got Rambo, We Got Urkel

Yeah I know, Putin's a dictatorial bastard, but at least he's effective. That's a lot more than we can say about Barry 'O'.

On The Situation In The Ukraine

Some interesting grist for the mill. I can't speak to the accuracy, but it definitely sounds plausible. After I found out about Saudi Arabia's and Qatar's involvement in the Syrian mess last year, and how we almost got sucked into that mess, I have learned to be a little more patient before rushing to judgement on certain international issues these days. Please read the linked articles below in order.
