Since reading this novel, I have read tens of thousands of pages of political thought, historical record and legal documents and have come to understand just where continued gun control is taking us…it is a place I do not wish to go. In the last four years, I have become a champion for the second amendment rights community, a holder of a federal firearms license , a collector with over 60 firearms, a hobby gunsmith and a lobbyist for the firearms community. All this from a person who voted for Clinton his first term! Get John Ross’ book, it will open your eyes.
Amazon Unintended Consequences [It is a very good book. I remember when it first came out some people on the Microsoft Gun Club email list referred to it as “The Bible”. That’s overstating it, but it is inspiring and prophetic.—Joe]
At first glance the average reader might wonder why this blog would have a particular interest in this case. Let me assure you this is EXTREMELY interesting to gun owners of this state.
I-1639 has so many different subjects that I won’t both to list them all. But here is a sample:
Enhanced background checks (page 3)
Training requirements (page 4)
Additional license fees for “semiauto assault rifle” (page 8)
Waiting period of 10 days for “semiauto assault rifles” (page 10)
Secure gun storage required in the home (page 10)
Gun dealers must post warnings about unsecured gun storage (page 12)
Out of state residents are prohibited from purchasing “semiautomatic assault rifles” (interesting loophole pointed out to me recently is that it is apparently legal give or loan such a rifle to an out of state resident) (page 21)
Persons under 21 may not purchase a “semiauto assault rifle” (page 22)
Provides for the department of licensing to develop a process to frequently verify, “that persons who acquired pistols or semiautomatic assault rifles pursuant to this chapter remain eligible to possess a firearm under state and federal law” (page 23)
Wouldn’t a reasonable person conclude the above subjects constitute more than one subject? Or would the Washington Supreme Court, which probably has never seen a gun law it didn’t approve of, conclude, “It’s all about guns. This is is a single subject. Case closed.” I give it about a 75% chance the court would claim it’s a single subject.
In addition to the consistent hostility of the court toward gun owners there is another reason why civil rights groups may avoid this approach.
Because of the American resistance to class warfare, beginning in the 1960s, American leftists started to substitute race, sex, and sexual orientation for class. That is, instead of dividing America along economic lines, they divided it along immutable characteristics lines. By doing so, they created permanent fissures in society. The point, always, was to destroy constitutional government, the free market, and a liberty-oriented mindset, and replace it with pure statism: Rule by the iron hand of the so-called “expert.”
We are a questioning people; questions will be asked. To wit: Is the name simply settled history, a historical bridge too far to even discuss? Is it a tad troublesome, but not enough to skip lunch over? Or is it a betrayal, wholly unjustified, a historical wrong deserving of righting?
Sleepy Joe Biden, he’s betrayed Black and Latino Americans, if you think he can run this country you’re wrong. For half a century. We’ve got to vote these people into oblivion, got to get rid of them, so bad for our country. Black and Latino Americans are rejecting the radical socialist left and embracing our pro-jobs, pro-worker, pro-police—we have to have law and order—and pro-American agenda.
Donald Trump President of the United States October 10, 2020 Trump Makes ‘Law and Order’ Pitch to Black, Latino Voters in ‘Blexit’ White House Speech [From a policy standpoint this is the major reason why I believe Trump is most likely to be reelected. The Democrats have become aligned with socialism and violent crime. Those on the lower economic tiers, primarily minorities, will be the most adversely affected by a socialist agenda and they know this.—Joe]
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was an exemplary beacon of justice.
U.S. Representative, 9th District, WA-D Press Release September 18, 2020
[This tells you everything you need to know about this public servant.
He is incredibly ignorant and/or evil.
Why? Contrast Smith’s words to these:
In a constitutional democracy the moral content of law must be given by the morality of the framer or legislator, never by the morality of the judge.
Robert Bork Speech American Enterprise Institute, 1984
At the SCOTUS level a judge’s job is not to deliver “justice”. It is to interpret and apply the law. If the judge is ruling in terms of what is “just” then they are little more than another legislative branch elected, for life, by the President and the Senate.
Leftists see SCOTUS as needing to be politically “balanced”. At least as long as they can’t have the court entirely filled with those who administer “justice” from the left. This is wrong.
There is no “balance” when reading the law of the legislative and the founders. There are only various degrees, including zero, of error in interpreting and applying it to the case under consideration.
Smith has demonstrated his ignorance and/or distain for our form of government. He needs to be replaced with someone who passed their government class in high school and will honor their oath of office.—Joe]
The revolution that created the American oligarchy—illiterate contemporary Marxists notwithstanding—has nothing in common with Karl Marx’s original democratic (in the Aristotelian sense) conception “from below” (e.g. his 1875 Critique of the Gotha Programme) other than “overthrowing the pillars of the house.” Ours is the Party-centered oligarchic revolution from above that Lenin outlined in What Is to Be Done? (1902). This Leninism is the template of the Soviet and every other Communist regime, bar none. In our revolution, too, everything—always and everywhere—is about the Party.
The first two sentences in the image at the beginning of this post appears to be correct. I have not tried to verify the second paragraph from the image. But it would appear that if it is true, and history runs essentially the same course, then the Democrat Party of America will be crushed by American Nazis.
That seems to be unlikely at this point. If strong opposition to Antifa forms it would seem to be more likely it is a mainstream majority demanding “law and order”.
Regardless, we live in interesting times. Day zero is four weeks away.
I was at the Boomershoot site this last weekend. I had two main tasks. The most important was to bring the explosives magazine up to ATF spec. The shrouds around the locks on the explosives magazine were inadequate:
Many years ago I received a variance from the ATF on them. I recently changed the ownership and the ATF license from my dba FlashTek to Boomershoot LLC. With that change, for some reason, the old variance did not transfer (I know, but remember, it’s a government rule. It doesn’t have to make sense). In the mean time there were additional rulings on the use of this type of lock. They clarified the requirements for the shrouds. I needed to improve them. I bought a cheap welder that could be operated by my 3kW generator and the steel to reduce the gap by 2.5”. I made the changes on Saturday without setting anything, or myself, on fire. There weren’t even any burn holes in my pants or minor skin burns.
The other issue was the top of the shipping container was in danger of developing leaks again. I strongly considered building some sort of covering over it myself but eventually decided I would rather have a professional take care of it in a more permanent manner. I received one bid by someone who proposed a sloped roof over the top which would have cost more than I originally paid for the container. Then another guy from Lewiston suggested a layer of plywood with TPO over the top and bid $1,700. I accepted and it was installed this weekend:
It should last 15 to 20 years as long as it doesn’t have a tree fall on it or something.
It is such a relief to get that done. It was really tough to even find someone to return my calls and now it is done before the fall rains and the heavy snow arrive.
Those cities, and other socialist cesspools were already on their way to near total waste like Detroit. This just makes it more clear socialism only works until you run out of other people’s money and that rule of law is superior to rule of mob.—Joe]
Republicans won’t be content with a win. They will burn every civil right they can find. Trump’s Hitler Youth-like “patriotic education” plan will become a reality. Gun control will become a remnant of history.
Despite the 2nd Amendment and numerous SCOTUS rulings there is no hint that he is aware the right to keep and bear arms is a civil right.
The Democrat with their “hate speech” restrictions, anti-Christian attitudes, forced purchase of health insurance, statute destruction, college admission and employee racial quotas, gun licensing, “red flag” (no due process), and gun bans has, by far, the worst civil rights record. Those are just off the top of my head without looking at the massive number of regulations on business and our everyday life. And it’s not even going back to the Jim Crow laws and the KKK.
The scenarios examined in his article should have, at least, four different election possibilities. He leaves out possibility number 4:
1) Biden landslide.
2) Narrow Biden victory.
3) Narrow Trump victory.
4) Trump landslide.
The set of errors found in his article are so numerous and cover such a wide variety of topics that one is forced to conclude he is living in an alternate reality or is knowingly propagating evil.
