Stop Pennsylvania Gun Control

March 12th, 2009 by Rich Szabo

This is Rep. Angel Cruz’s latest attempt to take our guns. House Bill 375 would require Pennsylvania gun owners to register every gun they own, every year at a cost of $10 per gun. Gun owners would need to be fingerprinted and photographed and that information would be held by the PA State Police. The bill would make it a crime not to report to state police the theft or loss of any gun within 48 hours.

This is the exact same bill that Rep. Cruz introduced 2 years ago as PA House Bill 760 that was decisively defeated once the word got out about it. Cruz thinks this time around might be charm since he and the Democrats have a majority in the PA House BUT NOT the Senate.

Here is the entire Bill.

Here’s the list of all the PA representatives:

Email them to stop this bill. You can also join the National Rifle Association which is the largest advocate for gun rights we have.

Ammunition Accountability Legislation

January 22nd, 2009 by Rich Szabo

Here it comes folks, but I guess we knew it was coming! Please keep this moving, to everyone, all states.

Ammunition Accountability Legislation
It has already started…

Ammunition Accountability Legislation

Remember how Obama said that he wasn’t going to take your guns? Well, it seems that his allies in the anti-gun world have no problem with taking your ammo!

The bill that is being pushed in 18 states (including Illinois and Indiana ) requires all ammunition to be encoded by the manufacture a data base of all ammunition sales. So they will know how much you buy and what calibers.
Nobody can sell any ammunition after June 30, 2009 unless the ammunition is coded…

Any privately held uncoded ammunition must be destroyed by July 1, 2011. (Including hand loaded ammo.) They will also charge a .05 cent tax on every round so=20 every box of ammo you buy will go up at least $2.50 or more!

If they can deprive you of ammo they do not need to take your gun!

This legislation is currently pending in 18 states: Alabama, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington.

Send to your friends in these states AND fight to dissolve this BILL!!

Gun Inquiry on Obama Administration Questionnaire

November 18th, 2008 by Rich Szabo

Barry Obama is starting his anti-gun stance before he even gets in office.

Question 59 on the Obama Transition Team’s intrusive and extensive list of questions for potential officials of the Obama administration:

“Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.”

The question has raised the ire of the National Rifle Association.

And rightly so. Barry Obama has taken his stance regarding the Second Amendment off his websites (both the campaign and transition). All it says is:

“Sportsmen
Barack Obama did not grow up hunting and fishing, but he recognizes the great conservation legacy of America’s hunters and anglers and has great respect for the passion that hunters and anglers have for their sports. Were it not for America’s hunters and anglers, including the great icons like Theodore Roosevelt and Aldo Leopold, our nation would not have the tradition of sound game management, a system of ethical, science-based game laws and an extensive public lands estate on which to pursue the sport. Barack Obama and Joe Biden recognize that we must forge a broad coalition if we are to address the great conservation challenges we face. America’s hunters and anglers are a key constituency that must take an active role and have a powerful voice in this coalition.”

Pretty vague if you ask me. My initial fear regarding Barry’s views has turned to sheer terror. What hit me was that once in office he could turn around and ban ALL firearms with an Executive Order. With both Houses controlled by his supporters there is nothing we will be able to do. People have told me I’m nuts to even think such a thing. However, looking at his past record when it comes to firearms, I don’t think I’m off one bit. Regardless of what Obama says, his actions don’t line up with his speaking.

Why do you think gun and ammunition sales are off the charts? People know deep down that this in-coming administration wants to ban guns or make it so difficult to own one that people are now rushing out to buy like crazy.

One extreme example of an executive order is Executive Order 9066, where Franklin D. Roosevelt delegated military authority to remove all people (used to target specifically Japanese Americans and German Americans) in a military zone. The authority delegated to General John L. DeWitt subsequently paved the way for all Japanese-Americans on the West Coast to be sent to internment camps for the duration of World War II. Thousands of German Americans and Italian Americans were also sent to internment camps under executive order.

Executive Order 13233, which restricted public access to the papers of Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush was more recently criticised by the Society of American Archivists and other groups, stating that it “violates both the spirit and letter of existing US law on access to presidential papers as clearly laid down in 44 USC. 2201-2207,” and adding that the order “potentially threatens to undermine one of the very foundations of our nation.”

Critics fear that the president could make himself a de facto dictator by side-stepping the other branches of government and making autocratic laws. The Italian philosopher Giorgio Agamben in particular has criticized the generalization since World War I of the use of executive orders or decrees by all Western democracies, declaring that this tends toward the constitution of a “permanent state of exception.” The presidents, however, cite executive order as often the only way to clarify laws passed through the Congress, laws which often require vague wording in order to please all political parties involved in their creation.

To date, U.S. courts have overturned only two executive orders: the aforementioned Truman order, and a 1996 order issued by President Clinton that attempted to prevent the US government from contracting with organizations that had strike-breakers on the payroll. Congress may overturn an executive order by passing legislation in conflict with it or by refusing to approve funding to enforce it. In the former, the president retains the power to veto such a decision; however, the Congress may override a veto with a two-thirds majority to end an executive order. It has been argued that a Congressional override of an executive order is a nearly impossible event due to the supermajority vote required and the fact that such a vote leaves individual lawmakers very vulnerable to political criticism.

So, be warned…

Obama and Guns

November 12th, 2008 by Rich Szabo

Barack Obama has no idea when it comes to firearms. He and Joe Biden are two of the most anti-gun people on this planet. They have consistently voted to ban firearms. Joe Biden penned the first version of the “Clinton Gun Ban of 1994″. They keep talking about banning “Assualt Weapons”. However they have no idea what they are talking about.

The term Assault Weapon is derived from the term assault rifle, itself a translation of the German word Sturmgewehr, literally “storm-rifle”. In its technical sense, the term Assault weapon refers to a military weapon used to aid in military assault operations, that is, attacking a fortified position. Legislators and political lobbyists have adopted the term to refer to specific semi-automatic firearms and other firearms listed by specific characteristics for statutory purposes. The legislative usage follows usage by political groups seeking to limit the individual’s right to keep and bear arms, who have sought to extend the meaning to include a semi-automatic firearm that is similar in name or appearance to a fully automatic firearm or military weapon. Note that this term is not synonymous with assault rifle, which has an established technical definition.

Using lists of physical features or specific firearms in defining assault weapons in the United States was first codified by the language defining semi-automatic rifles with certain characteristics in the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban.

The term “assault weapon” in the context of civilian rifles has been attributed to gun-control activist Josh Sugarmann. Assault weapon refers to semi-automatic firearms (that is, firearms that, when fired, automatically extract the spent casing and load the next round into the chamber, ready to fire again) that were developed from earlier fully-automatic weapons. By former U.S. law the legal term assault weapon included certain specific semi-automatic firearm models by name (e.g., Colt AR-15, H&K G36E, TEC-9, all AK-47s, and Uzis) and other semi-automatic firearms because they possess a minimum set of features from the following list of features:

A semi-automatic AK-47 rifle.
An Intratec TEC-9 with 32-round magazine; a semi-automatic pistol formerly classified as an Assault Weapon under Federal Law.

Semi-automatic rifles able to accept detachable magazines and two or more of the following:

* Folding stock
* Conspicuous pistol grip
* Bayonet mount
* Flash suppressor, or threaded barrel designed to accommodate one
* Grenade launcher (more precisely, a muzzle device which enables the launching or firing of rifle grenades)

Semi-automatic pistols with detachable magazines and two or more of the following:

* Magazine that attaches outside the pistol grip
* Threaded barrel to attach barrel extender, flash suppressor, handgrip, or silencer
* Barrel shroud that can be used as a hand-hold
* Unloaded weight of 50 oz (1.4 kg) or more
* A semi-automatic version of an automatic firearm

Semi-automatic shotguns with two or more of the following:

* Folding or telescoping stock
* Pistol grip
* Fixed capacity of more than 5 rounds
* Detachable magazine

The earlier term assault rifle, refers to rifles that are select-fire (that is, rifles that are capable of either semi-automatic or fully-automatic fire), firing intermediate-power rounds (such as the 5.56 x 45 mm NATO, or 7.62 x 39 mm), which along with fully automatic pistols, provided the pre-cursor for the term “assault weapon.”

(Fully automatic, such as describing a machine gun, means that a firearm can fire multiple rounds with a single pull of the trigger and will continue to fire as long as the trigger is depressed and ammunition remains in the magazine. In contrast, the term assault weapon as used in civilian and U.S. legal usage refers to a semi-automatic weapon that fires one shot for each trigger pull, the same as any other semi-automatic hunting rifle, or semi-automatic household handgun, all of which automatically load another round of ammunition that can be fired with each subsequent trigger pull until the attached magazine is empty. Note: a double-action revolver also fires one shot for each trigger pull but is not considered “semi-automatic” since the force of pulling the trigger brings the next round ready rather than the recoil of the last cartridge.)

Now, if you are going to start your anti-gun rhetoric let’s get more of our terminology correct.

Here’s what Obama had to say about the Virginia Tech shootings:

“(Cho) had a semiautomatic weapon with a clip that allowed him to take 19 shots in a row,” Obama said. “I don’t know any self-respecting hunter that needs 19 rounds of anything. The only reason you have 19 rounds is potentially to do physical harm to people. You don’t shoot 19 rounds at a deer. And if you do, you shouldn’t be hunting.”

Source: http://www.boston.com/news/local/new_hampshire/articles/2007/04/20/obama_says_us_needs_to_review_gun_policies/

If they allowed all the people who had concealed carry licenses to be able to carry on campus, they could have stopped this maniac. But, the college wouldn’t allow law abiding citizens to carry on campus.

Hey Barry, just a head’s up, but it’s not a clip. It’s called a MAGAZINE. If you want to be an authority on gun control, get your terminology right. Clips are not Magazines!
Don’t expose yourself to ridicule as a gun goof by misusing terms.

It is amusing that people con­sider themselves knowledgeable or authoritative don’t know the difference between the two. If called on their gaffe, they often fall back on “Well, everyone knows what was meant,” or a plea to not be so pedantic.

Here’s the difference Barry and Joe. Now pay attention and take notes:

A “Clip” is a device for holding cartridges together, usually to facilitate loading. Widely used as a synonym for “magazine” (although most firearm authorities consider this substandard usage). Technically, a magazine has a feeding spring, a clip does not.

A clip is different from a magazine and the terms are by no means interchangeable. Using “clip” when one means “magazine” is akin to saying “tires” when one actually means “wheels.” Such a malaprop marks the user as a hopeless idiot. More reasons why the two terms should not be confused or interchanged is because the “clip” actually fits inside a magazine.

Here is a picture of a magazine which is what you reference in your statement:

Pistol Magazine

Here is a picture of a clip:

Lee Enfield Clip

If you can’t figure this out by reading, you can watch this video:

 

So Barry, if you and Joey are planning your gun ban, I would suggest maybe you take a few NRA courses and actually learn what you are banning. Because listening to you talk I sit back and laugh, because neither one of you have any idea what you are talking about.

Obamas Election Promise to Gun Owners Disappears

November 7th, 2008 by Rich Szabo

I find it Omazing that the Barack Obama website took down the pages and .pdf files of his gun control policies the day after the election.Barry and Joe Biden are two of the most anti-gun supporters in this nation. Biden was one of the original writers of the Clinton Gun Ban. I can promise you that this will be one of the first items on the table after they are sworn in on January 20th. I have had people tell me it would take years to get this through. How long did it take for the Bailout Plan to get written, voted on and signed into law? Answer: Less than a week.


Here’s where the gun control policies were:


http://www.barackobama.com/issues/additional/Obama_FactSheet_Western_Sportsmen.pdf

This is where the statement on Obama’s “support” of the second amendment used to be before Nov 4th. Look how quickly they took it down!


I sent an email to Barry’s website regarding the issue of gun control and why the pages regarding the second amendment were taken down. And on this website they have one paragraph talking about “Sportsmen”. You can also apply for a job with the new administration while your there. I guess that’s his way of creating jobs and saving the economy. I received an auto-responder message which follows:


“You have just contacted Obama for America, the Obama/Biden campaign organization. A new organization is being formed to facilitate communication with the Obama/Biden Administration that will take office on January 20, 2009. If you have questions, suggestions, or comments about the federal government, policy, or the coming Obama/Biden Administration, please visit the online Office of the President-elect for more information and to get involved:

http://www.change.gov

If you’re contacting us because you’ve been energized by your participation in our grassroots movement, we hope you will remain active in your community and involved in national policy debates. Please continue to visit www.BarackObama.com regularly. We’ve built one of the most comprehensive nationwide organizing networks in history, and our victory on November 4th is only the beginning of the work we will do together.

The 56th Presidential Inauguration will take place on January 20th, 2009, and will be run by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies. We encourage you to check their website for more details:

http://inaugural.senate.gov/

If you have other thoughts or business with the campaign, you can continue to reach us toll free at 866-675-2008. Due to the extremely high number of messages we are currently receiving, we may be unable to respond to your message individually, but we do appreciate hearing from you and hope you’ll work with us as we build America’s future together.

Thank you again for contacting us.

Sincerely,
Obama for America”

I would go to http://change.gov/page/s/contact and send them an email demanding Barry & Joe’s policies on gun control and what their detailed agenda is. I asked for a detailed plan on his stance for gun control, not just smooth talking B.S. So far I have heard nothing. However, we the people can bug the hell out of them to make sure that our Second Amendment Rights stay just as they are.

Support the NRA, it’s the only hope we have:

OBAMA, McCAIN on GUN CONTOL

September 12th, 2008 by Rich Szabo

Being an avid gun collector, I was curious as to where each candidate stood on the Second Amendment which states: “A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” I wasn’t too suprised by what I found.

What I did find interesting is that on Obama’s website on the main page after trying to figure out how to get past all the signup crap for his campaign and just get into the website, I was looking for issues. There is a menu called “Issues”. When you click on it you get a list. What was not on the list was Second Amendment or Gun Control. It was buried under “Other Issues” and titled “Sportsmen“: Whereas John McCain’s website under issues it has a link called 2nd Amendment. Interesting don’t you think?

In 2000, Barak Obama cosponsored a bill that would have limited the purchase of handguns to one per month. That may not sound significant, but the truth is, such a bill would impede the rights of law abiding citizens. There is no justifiable reason to limit the ability of people who have no criminal record from purchasing any legal fire arm. Obama at the same time also voted against allowing people to violate local fire arms bans even in the case of self protection. What does that mean in application? Criminals who are already breaking the law have nothing to worry about, because Obama has made sure that law abiding citizens cannot carry a weapon to protect themselves against those criminals.

According to the 1998 Illinois State Legislative National Political Awareness Test of July 2, 1998, Obama also supports the banning of all semi-automatic weapon sales and transfers. When most people hear “semi-automatic weapon”, they think of the gun in the hand of the gang banger. That may be true, but there are a lot of other guns that are semi-automatic, which would also be included in such bans. Shotguns, for example, that are used by bird hunters would fall under the ban. The only reason to try to ban a whole class of gun, with such a wide stroke, is to start the progression of banning all guns eventually.

Barrack Obama on Gun Control:

This from the Barry Sotero website: http://www.barackobama.com/issues/additional/Obama_FactSheet_Western_Sportsmen.pdf

“Barack Obama did not grow up hunting and fishing, but he recognizes the great conservation legacy of America’s hunters and anglers and has great respect for the passion that hunters and anglers have for their sport.

Were it not for America’s hunters and anglers, including the great icons like Theodore Roosevelt and Aldo Leopold, our nation would not have the tradition of sound game management, a system of ethical, science-based game laws and an extensive public lands estate on which to pursue the sport. Obama recognizes that we must
forge a broad coalition if we are to address the great conservation challenges we face. America’s hunters and anglers are a key constituency that must take an active role and have a powerful voice in this coalition.

PROTECTING GUN RIGHTS
Respect the Second Amendment: Millions of hunters and shooters own and use guns each year. Barack Obama believes the Second Amendment creates an individual right, and he respects the constitutional rights of Americans to bear arms. He will protect the rights of hunters and other law-abiding Americans to purchase, own, transport, and use guns.”

Now the real deal on where Barry stands:

* Ok for states & cities to determine local gun laws. (Apr 2008)
* FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban. (Apr 2008)
* Respect 2nd Amendment, but local gun bans ok. (Feb 2008)
* Provide some common-sense enforcement on gun licensing. (Jan 2008)
* 2000: cosponsored bill to limit purchases to 1 gun per month. (Oct 2007)
* Concealed carry OK for retired police officers. (Aug 2007)
* Stop unscrupulous gun dealers dumping guns in cities. (Jul 2007)
* Keep guns out of inner cities–but also problem of morality. (Oct 2006)
* Bush erred in failing to renew assault weapons ban. (Oct 2004)
* Ban semi-automatics, and more possession restrictions. (Jul 1998)
* Voted NO on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)

John McCain on Gun Controlfrom McCains website:

“Protecting Second Amendment Rights
John McCain believes that the right of law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms is a fundamental, individual Constitutional right that we have a sacred duty to protect. We have a responsibility to ensure that criminals who violate the law are prosecuted to the fullest, rather than restricting the rights of law abiding citizens. Gun control is a proven failure in fighting crime. Law abiding citizens should not be asked to give up their rights because of criminals – criminals who ignore gun control laws anyway.Gun Manufacturer Liability
John McCain opposes backdoor attempts to restrict Second Amendment rights by holding gun manufacturers liable for crimes committed by third parties using a firearm, and has voted to protect gun manufacturers from such inappropriate liability aimed at bankrupting the entire gun industry.Assault Weapons
John McCain opposes restrictions on so-called “assault rifles” and voted consistently against such bans. Most recently he opposed an amendment to extend a ban on 19 specific firearms, and others with similar characteristics.Importation of High Capacity Magazines
John McCain opposes bans on the importation of certain types of ammunition magazines and has voted against such limitations.

Gun Locks
John McCain believes that every firearms owner has a responsibility to learn how to safely use and store the firearm they have chosen, whether for target shooting, hunting, or personal protection. He has supported legislation requiring gun manufacturers to include gun safety devices such as trigger locks in product packaging.

Banning Ammunition
John McCain believes that banning ammunition is just another way to undermine Second Amendment rights. He voted against an amendment that would have banned many of the most commonly used hunting cartridges on the spurious grounds that they were “armor-piercing.”

DC Personal Protection
As part of John McCain’s defense of Second Amendment rights, he cosponsored legislation to lift a ban on the law abiding citizens of the District of Columbia from exercising their Constitutional right to bear arms.

Criminal Background Checks
John McCain supports instant criminal background checks to help prohibit criminals from buying firearms and has voted to ensure they are conducted thoroughly, efficiently, and without infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens.

Background Checks at Gun Shows
At a time when some were trying to shut down gun shows in the name of fighting crime, John McCain tried to preserve gun shows by standardizing sales procedures. Federal law requires licensed firearm sellers at gun shows to do an instant criminal background check on purchasers while private firearm sellers at gun shows do not have to conduct such a check. John McCain introduced legislation that would require an instant criminal background check for all sales at gun shows and believes that such checks must be conducted quickly to ensure that unnecessary delays do not effectively block transactions.

The Firearm Purchase Waiting Period
John McCain has opposed “waiting periods” for law abiding citizen’s purchase of firearms.

The Confiscation of Firearms After an Emergency
John McCain opposes the confiscation of firearms from private citizens, particularly during times of crisis or emergency. He voted in favor of an amendment sponsored by Senator David Vitter prohibiting such confiscation.

Stiffer Penalties for Criminals Who Use a Firearm in the Commission of a Crime
John McCain believes in strict, mandatory penalties for criminals who use a firearm in the commission of a crime or illegally possess a firearm. Enforcing the current laws on the books is the best way to deter crime.”

And also this:

* I know how to use guns; but I don’t own one. (Nov 2007)
* Prosecute criminals, not citizens for gun ownership. (Sep 2007)
* Don’t hold gun manufacturers liable for crimes. (Sep 2007)
* Opposes restrictions on assault weapons and ammunition types. (Sep 2007)
* Calls for GOP “tolerance” of closing gun show loopholes. (May 2002)
* Ban cheap guns; require safety locks; for gun show checks. (Aug 1999)
* Supports ban on certain assault weapons. (Aug 1999)
* Voted against Brady Bill & assault weapon ban. (Aug 1999)
* Guns are a problem, but so are violent web sites & videos. (Aug 1999)
* Punish criminals who abuse 2nd Amendment rights. (May 1999)
* Youth Violence Prevention Act restricts guns for kids. (May 1999)
* Repeal existing gun restrictions; penalize criminal use. (Jul 1998)
* Voted YES on prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers. (Jul 2005)
* Voted YES on banning lawsuits against gun manufacturers for gun violence. (Mar 2004)
* Voted NO on background checks at gun shows. (May 1999)
* Voted YES on more penalties for gun & drug violations. (May 1999)
* Voted YES on loosening license & background checks at gun shows. (May 1999)
* Voted YES on maintaining current law: guns sold without trigger locks. (Jul 1998)
* Ban gun registration & trigger lock law in Washington DC. (Mar 2007)
* Allow firearms in National Parks. (Feb 2008)

Gun control history has not been positive in favor of the unarmed citizen. The whole point of the Second Amendement is to protect yourself from your Government. Here’s what happed in history when those rights were taken away:

Turkey established gun control in 1911.
From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.

The USSR established gun control in 1929.
From 1929 to 1953, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938.
From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, mentally ill people, and other mongrelized peoples” unable to defend themselves from their government, were exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935.
From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated by their own government.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964.
From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970.
From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956.
From 1975 to 1977, one million “educated people”, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.

The US established gun control in 1968 with The Gun Control Act, which is nearly a verbatim copy of Germany’s 1938 gun control law. Since then, gun laws and much of the Criminal Code have become federalized, with police power being transferred to Washington, DC. War-making liberals at the United Nations are also in the act, declaring peaceful private gun owners should be disarmed. The stage is being set. The process of gun control and registration has begun. Does anybody see a pattern here?

Gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent. Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns! While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won’t see this data on the American evening news or hear our president, governors or other politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens. With guns, we are ‘citizens’. Without them, we are ‘subjects’.

So who do you want as our next Commander in Chief? One who supports the Second Amendment, or one who wants to take away all our rights?

A fantastic read that spells it all out is Death by “Gun Control”: The Human Cost of Victim Disarmament
