An increasing number
of Americans are becoming aware of an ignored “holiday,”
formerly the purview mainly of gun activists and Second Amendment
supporters—the day the Bill of Rights was ratified, Dec. 15,
Articles 3 through
12, proposed amendments to the then new U.S. Constitution, were renamed and
became the U.S. Bill of Rights. A landmark in the record of human liberty,
nothing like it had ever been attempted. It now faces threats as never
While gun rights
previously took most of the heat, all civil rights are in more jeopardy in
2019. Gun-rights advocates promoted the date, because they saw Second
Amendment guarantees of the right to arms as fundamental to protection of
the rest. Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org, has vigorously promoted
the date for decades, under a banner, of “All of the Bill of Rights
for all citizens,” knowing gun rights were carried on its
Journalists, who as a group often disparage the
Second Amendment and the armed populace it encourages, now face a torrent
of anti-Bill of Rights sentiment and laws, largely from left-wing college
students and professors, who believe free speech, which derives its nearly
absolute powers from the First Amendment, falls out of favor. Along with
it, the right to practice religion without government interference, and
even the right to assemble, have come under withering scrutiny, including
physical and moral attack. Varieties of “political
correctness,” euphemisms for marxism/socialism are to blame,
promoting fear, hatred, racism, intolerance, “required
diversity,” offensiveness, narratives and group think as reasons to
curtail free exchange of ideas and speech.
Pundits note that so-called “red-flag gun
laws,” as well as current congressional efforts to impeach the U.S.
president, rely heavily on removal of due process protections under the 4th
through 6th Amendments. These include bedrocks of freedom such as innocence
until guilt is proven, the ability to confront your accuser and compel
witnesses to appear in your defense, and public trials by jury, all of
which have been abrogated. Other guarantees of the Bill of Rights have been
ignored, with no penalties—or even charges—brought against the
perpetrators, one of the most glaring flaws in the Constitution—it
provides no specific penalties for abuse of its terms, short of

The democrats are on the march. Because they now run
the U.S. House of Representatives, they figure they can draft and introduce
anything, and they have. They took an entire congressional day a while back
(when they were still doing law) to preach, proselytize and promote (they
no longer debate) H.R. 8, a gun-registration scheme disguised as some sort
of so-called “background checks.” It says no gun will move
between people without paperwork filed.
We already have background checks, which we were
promised would basically end gun-related crime. H.R. 8 does nothing about
armed criminals. The checks are expensive, consume crime-fighting
resources, and have become an entire employment branch of the FBI and
BATFE. According to Dept. of Justice studies, massive inner-city murder
counts, domestic-violence hostilities and murderous sociopathic outbursts
in the news (with endless saturation media “coverage”) are
unaffected by the existing or newly proposed checks. Mass media omits the
All the focus on checks is being prompted by, and done
in hopes to forestall homicidal children from slaughtering their
classmates, and to stop spree killers and jihadis from randomly creating
massacres. If only the “news” media would point out that this
and related bills are not remotely related to fixing those problems.
Stopping mass murderers, and implementing new record checking are

H.R. 8 says gun
registration is banned, but people in the know understand that’s just
window dressing, designed to provide plausible deniability. That clause can
be removed with ease at any later date. The important thing for the left is
to get H.R. 8 passed (which they have done), by the one House they control.
Control. In the future, the near future, they can massage, change, amend,
completely rewrite and reintroduce amending amendments, and make
registration the core of the program. They know it, I know it, now you know
it. The Dept. of Justice said the obvious, the scheme can’t work
without registration: without knowing where everyone’s guns are,private transfers(the new wrinkle) can’t be
controlled. That’s why the left just considers this a good first
step. Everyone who understands is aware of that.
The results of crime
are not demographically
Control of privately transferred firearms, the actual
goal of this bill, doesn’t work unless the government knows who has
what guns. Without that information, there’s no way to tell if you or
anyone transferred a gun to anyone. To know if you own the guns you always
had, and still have all the guns you used to have, the government needs a
list. All of the time, effort and money of H.R. 8 goes into tracking YOU,
not stopping crime. Remember, gun control is about control. It is not crime
control. Crime control would look like increased budget and facilities for
arresting, trying and incarcerating some of the 6,000 murderers annually
who walk free. Crime control means disarming armed criminals lurking in the
usual haunts. The left doesn't propose crime control.
The left actually
detests dealing with crime control for a difficult reason -- the results of
crime control are not demographically diverse. This defeats a tenet of
leftist ideology. Crime control to the left is racist, due to its disparate
Because gun registration is a required piece of the new
so-called background-check scheme, and is meaningless without it, this is a
reason why it meets such stiff opposition. It’s evil incarnate, not
due to one powerful lobby or another, positioned well and struggling
uphill, fighting the good fight. Lobbies like NRA, GOA, SAF, JPFO and the
rest are there because left-wing socialist gun-rights-denial plans are so
America needs a law to
guarantee that registration—the prerequisite for gun
confiscations—cannot happen. The Constitution’s ban on
infringement itself is no longer enough. That in itself is astounding.
People would approve banning transfers without government approval, as if
they are empowered to vote for such things. Too many politicians,
sidewinding, bottom-feeding ethics-free maggots—no longer have honor,
and violate the Big C without remorse. We the people must hold them
accountable, and contained, with legitimate threats of jail time.
Here’s how it’s done.
registration is infringement.
Registration is infringement. Infringement is banned.
Why? Well it’s easy to see that the right of the people to keep and
bear armsshall not be
in the Constitution itself, that language is plain. What’s missing is
Gun and gun-owner registration puts brakes on what you
can and cannot freely do—like handing a gun to your buddy, or buying
a gun from your friend. Those freedoms you currently enjoy are interfered
with—infringed—by the registration and background-check schemes
democrats are pushing in both H.R. 8, H.R. 1112, previous proposals, and
bills floating now through state legislatures.
Anyone who would infringe your right to property you
already own should face (a court martial, ethics inquiry, censure,
expulsion, impeachment, fines, ridicule, ostracism, penalties, jail time,
tar and feathering, firing squad, pick one). Due process and a ban on cruel
and unusual punishment helps guide your choices.
Such a bill would actually provide protection for
proper law enforcement officers who might be pressed into service to
enforce unconstitutional infringement dictates now being cooked up by the
socialist party disguised as democrats. Officers could legally refuse to
act in any way that infringes on a citizen’s right to keep and bear
arms, which people already keep and bear. Because the officers would be
subject to penalties for violating citizens’ rights to arms, they
(the officers) would have grounds for refusing to obey such orders—it
would make police criminals to do so.
