Bans on Black Rifles: Will Supreme Court Finally Decide Constitutionality?

Send to Kindle

As it relates to the gun community, one of the most pressing issues of our time is whether banning the ownership of modern sporting rifles aka “assault weapons” (as defined by anti-gunners) aka black rifles aka semiautomatic rifles with detachable magazines aka AR-15/AK-47s is constitutional?

This is GunsAmerica. So, you know where we stand on the issue. That said, we’re not the ones charged with interpreting the law as it relates to the Constitution. That prestigious job falls to the courts, and in this particular instance the Supreme Court.

Yes, thanks to several different cases, and appeals, and more cases and more appeals that have wended their way through the lower courts, to state courts, to federal circuit courts the matter has landed at the doorstep of the high court in a case concerning a ban on black rifles enacted by the city of Highland Park, Illinois.

Coincidently, just this week, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld previous rulings in New York and Connecticut that said that each state’s ban on black rifles was constitutional.  Both Connecticut and New York expanded their respective prohibition on assault weapons in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

A three-judge panel for the 2nd Circuit concluded that the “core provisions” of the assault weapons bans “do not violate the Second Amendment” because they are “substantially related to the achievement of an important governmental interest.” That “government interest” as you may have guessed is “public safety” and “crime reduction.”

Yes, we know that reasoning is B.S. What’s more is that the courts know that it’s B.S., well, at least some of them do. In fact, and to circle back to the Highland Park case, one court openly acknowledged as much — sorta.

“If it has no other effect, Highland Park’s ordinance may increase the public’s sense of safety,” wrote Circuit Judge Frank H. Easterbrook from the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals.

“Mass shootings are rare, but they are highly salient, and people tend to overestimate the likelihood of salient events,” he continued. “If a ban on semi‐automatic guns and large‐capacity magazines reduces the perceived risk from a mass shooting, and makes the public feel safer as a result, that’s a substantial benefit.”

Yes, you read that correctly. It’s all about the perception and feelings of the public — not facts. Fact: Black rifles are rarely used in crimes. Fact: Black rifles are rarely used in mass shootings (less than 10 percent). Fact: Mass shootings are not on the rise. Fact: Modern Sporting Rifles are in common use (around 16 million owners). Fact: AR-15s are America’s best selling rifle. Fact: Black rifles are great for self-defense within the home. Fact: The Constitution means what it says, “A well regulated militia, being the best security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

In short, these courts want to shred your right to keep and bear arms because it may make nanny-state dolts, dimwits and anti-gunners feel safe.

It’s crazy. Hopefully the high court sees through this malarkey. But there’s no guarantee. If it wants to, the Supreme Court could opt to hear the Highland Park case. We should know at some point in the very near future as to whether it will pick this case.  Maybe this week.  We’ll keep you posted.

If you’re curious, here is the decision on the SAFE Act released by the 2nd Circuit:

    This is ridiculous.. The anti-gunners creating a “scary” name “assault-rifles” and the pro-gunners creating an “off-topic” name “modern sporting rifles”… Why not call them what they are? Small arms… The 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with sporting so why call them sporting rifles? Why not call them anti-tyranny rifles or something else more to-the-point?

    Wait, you’re against anti-tyranny rifles?? Tyrant!

    This back and forth has to stop; it’s annoyingly similar to watching 2 kids bicker over who got more ice-cream because one ate theirs quicker than the other.. If only we’d spend this much effort into an actual education, including firearms, we’d be the smartest nation on earth….

    • Acecool November 25, 2016, 8:31 pm

      I should also add to the point of spending this much effort on educations… Maybe then people would understand what “The right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed” means….

    . – “SHALL NOT………………………………………..BE INFRINGED”

    This was the clarion message WE the People succinctly stated in the “Bill of RIGHTS” to the ones thereby ALLOWED BY RATIFICATION-(by us) for future legal oversight assemblage of the federal ‘union of Sovereign States’
    (not- United Soviet States of America).

    “The Bill of RIGHTS” are the 10 so specifically listed-
    “endowed by their Creator certain unalienable Rights” –
    as put forth in the foundational – “DECLARATION of INDEPENDENCE”

    By law set up to “never to be infringed” or the Constitution would never have been ratified- and each Sovereign State would’ve remained a independent separate nation. ie- no union formed hence no united American States…

    These RIGHTS were nailed into the middle of the -unratified- Constitution until they were firmly in place whereupon it was only then ratified.
    Because without -them- the Constitution had already been rejected and denied by the Representatives of the People of the original States.

    “That said, we’re not the ones charged with interpreting the law as it relates to the Constitution. That prestigious job falls to the courts, and in this particular instance the Supreme Court.”

    Actually this role was assumed, or one may well say “usurped from the People”, by the first Chief Justice, a fact that was viewed with alarm and lamented at length by no less a person than Thomas Jefferson himself.
    Maybe it’s time that We the People took it back…

      This is yet another state who is enabling the changing of the meaning of 2a. etal. I bored the heck out of you folks who read what the definition of ‘arms’ were according to Daniel Webster. The only thing that I will say to those people who wrongly ridiculed the fine constitutionalists in MA for not trying hard, or spending enough money money to overturn a ruling by our AG banning these guns, it doesn’t matter how hard you try. Now you’ve seen it in another state, a little different situation, same outcome by an APPOINTED authority. NOT ELECTED. So no more bullshit about how we got what we deserved. These officials are usurping their authority. Got it now? Understand? No law abiding citizen deserve this but maybe your state is next. I won’t point my finger and blame you for not trying, or getting what you deserve. That serves no purpose. My point is it happened again in a different state, it was not a voted referendum, and there is not a legal check and balance happening. Perhaps now that Trump finally appointed Supreme that is on our side, things will change. I sincerely hope that the jerks who blame the constituents in the state understand that it isn’t our fault. As much as it pisses me off that you blame the people, I sincerely and honestly hope it does not happen to you next. Stay tough, stay right !

  • Aardvark September 23, 2016, 9:23 pm

    The facts are quite simple:
    1. The US Constitution is the “Supreme Law of Our Land” according to the government.
    2. The 2nd Amendment is part of the original “Bill of Rights” of the Constitution.
    3. Everyone in Congress, the President and VP, and all federal judges swore an oath of office to protect and defend it.
    4. ANYONE that violates their oath of office should be impeached.
    5. ANYONE that attempts to dismantle the “Bill of Rights” is Anti-American!
    Thomas Jefferson stated that: “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”

  • Lou Gots November 13, 2015, 1:16 pm

    It’s called the right to keep and bear arm, not the right to keep and bear toys and sporting goods. Arms are dangerous. They kill people. A gun which did not kill who or what was in front of it when the trigger was pulled would be a defective consumer product.

    M16 clones are such arms as defined by the Court in Heller, as being a type in common use and even as identified by the Miller case as being suitable for militia purposes. Certainly a National Guard commander who was responsible for a called up unorganized militia would prefer that the militiamen were already equipped and experienced with rifles using the same cartridges and even accepting the same magazines as those in the hands of his organized militia National Guardsmen.

  • YankeeBill November 1, 2015, 2:52 pm

    I am old enough to remember when we could buy a rifle mail order! I don’t have any of the scary black rifles all y’all are talking about, but I just bought a beautiful M1 Garand from the CMP. I hope they don’t come for it! No plastic. All metal and wood. No pistol grip. No detachable magazine hanging out below the receiver. But, I definitely do not want to be on the wrong end when that 150 grain bullet leaves the muzzle! Isn’t the CMP a government-sponsored, or quasi-government sponsored outfit? That reminds me of a drug dealer…oops, I mean a doctor, who prescribes a patient certain medications, gets them hooked, then tells them they can’t have the drug any more because the patient is addicted to it! Our government is a bunch of treacherous liars, cheats, and hypocrites!

  • dennis campbell November 1, 2015, 7:48 am

    and now our president castro is going to arm the E.P.A. with the same guns that they want to take away from us……looks like one more step in wanting to take over complete control…………..if we don’t do something this next election it won’t be long after they will start …………i am ready ………….to defend my family against our tyranny government …………..

  • James Pratt October 31, 2015, 2:04 am

    Since our forefathers had the wisdom to keep the people on an equal footing with government in terms of the Right to Bear Arms then it stands to reason that if government troops, police, and other government agencies have been armed with “assault weapons”, then the people should be equally armed. That is how we stay free citizens and not subjects. There is no other way to look at it. Only a corrupted court with evil intentions could decide otherwise. Oh wait…………these are the same guys that said corporations are people.

  • Joe McHugh October 30, 2015, 9:44 pm

    I can see why some people are becoming upset with the ever growing number of state and Federal gun laws. However, I remain above the fray because I don’t have any firearms in my home.

    I live in the People’s Republic of New York State and my Democrat governor is Andrew Cuomo. Since January of 2013 his S.A.F.E. gun law, outlawed AR 15 type rifles. You cannot buy one of these “assault weapons” in New York and those owned by private individuals have to be registered just like handguns. The S.A.F.E. law even requires a N.I.C.S. check up if you want to buy a 50-count box of .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

    My neighbor “Bob” has a rather extensive collection of most of the various “dangerous weapons” gun models listed on the S.A.F.E. act documentation. Yup, even some of the slide action shotgun models appear on that listing. When “Bob” makes a new firearm acquisition, he invites me over to admire it. These firearms elicit a certain fascination in how their mechanisms function and some of them have beautiful Walnut stocks. He makes a point of buying these items from private sellers, you know, casual gun transactions that don’t involve filling out the Federal form # 4473.

    “Bob” once told me that no one could discover where he keeps his guns even with a sensitive metal detector. The way he talks, he has enough spare ammunition to re fight the WWII Normandy invasion. As I said, I don’t have one of these “evil” firearms and I’m almost sure that the good people at the N.S.A. monitoring center believe me.

    I hope that the legislatures and the courts straighten out the confusion over the Second Amendment, but whatever is decided, “Bob” is not worried.

  • Bob Novak October 30, 2015, 8:26 pm

    This is going to be bad for gun enthusiasts. The SCOTUS has already stated the fcking S.A.F.E. act was constitutional, so it falls to reason they’ll ban all the semi auto weapons they can. We’re screwed. Be ready to become outlaws or give em up, its up to you, but I know what I’m going to do.

    • SNAKEDOCTOR October 31, 2015, 9:20 pm

      Amen. Hide-em

  • Kivaari October 30, 2015, 8:13 pm

    We the people should be allowed to own and use the scary black rifles (even when they are flat dark earth or green) without restrictions already in place. The NFA and subsequent laws need to be repealed. Why, would an AR15 rifle with a 14.5 barrel be unlawful without NFA registration, while one fitted with a 16 inch barrel is just one more rifle. None of these guns deserve extra scrutiny by the government nor locals.

    • David V. November 3, 2015, 11:30 pm

      Completely agree Kivaari, This NFA short barrel rifle law is total horseshit. The length of the barrel, or a little less of it doesnt do a damn thing but infringe on us law abiding gun owners. A few extra inches there isnt gonna stop any nut from doing what the little voices the nut hears in his head tells him to do. And when was the last time we heard of any crime commited by anyone with a short barreled rifle. A useless law for bullshit reasons. Maybe if we win the suppressor fight based on hearing loss, we can turn our attention to getting this SBR law of the NFA list as well. One can only hope.

      • hoochbear July 1, 2016, 8:15 am

        Black rifle laws totally meet the stupid test.: bayonet lug, flash suppressor, muzzle brake, pronounced pistol grip, thumb hole stock, threaded barrel, suppressor (Federal govt already requires registration/licensing of such) , grenade launcher. Really? ( I know, I missed some). Next thing you know they’ll want to include ‘black’ tactical lights, night-scopes, lasers, rail mounts, magazine connectors, even electrical tape. (he,y they used it on M-16’s in Viet Nam). Bayonet lugs & flash suppressor can be found easily on many older military surplus rifles, muzzle brakes on shotguns and on and on and on. .When was the last time the preceding that could influence the outcome were used in a robbery? I could probably live with a 16 “rifle and 18″ shotgun barrel and overall lengths of 26” and 28″respectively. But I know when the regulatory camel sticks its nose & eyes under the tent, it loses all common sense. Some idiots think that if government can minimize personal ownership of firearms by confiscating civilian firearms, other than government, only criminals & terrorists will have them and will stand out like a sore thumb. So easy. Sure Sadly, LMAO, government cant even keep down the theft of 15′, 5,000 pound automobiles Get a a brain & a life, idiots.

  • An America October 30, 2015, 6:25 pm

    I don’t care what gubmit say or tried to do when it comes to restricting our amendments and right. If they pass some idiotic ban on semi auto, aka black rifles, they will have to take them from my cold dead hands, because this American will shot back if they dare to compmficate. I suspect they will eventually get the little ban passed in time as more and more ignorant children grow up dummer than the last generations and even more naive to the fight that is required of each generation to keep freedom. This is nothing new for our generation, however what is new is the explosion of liberal educations, removal of Christianity and replacement with the Islamic deplorably evil one coming across this border specifically to destroy our foundation and overrun our country until they have enough of a majority to remove the constitution. Hopefully I have passed on by then or at the very least found a way to live far from it, nonetheless it will surly happen

  • IP DAILY October 30, 2015, 4:17 pm

    Please everyone we need to get out and vote for pro-gun judges this November, For those of you who need information on judges in your area go to the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, look for Election Alert to find the Pro-Gun Judges in your area.

    We must stay vigilant never let leftist progressives liberals legislate our guns away. Get out and Vote in November!!

  • larry October 30, 2015, 4:08 pm

    how about the truth… the real compelling government interest is the want to install a fascist regime to run our country, and you know, they just can’t do that if we have 100,000,000 guns in the hands of patriots that can shoot their fascist eyes out at 100 yards..
    government interest my ass !!!

  • Rocky October 30, 2015, 1:30 pm

    Regardless of what some Liberal, ‘Progressive’ Judges and Justices might rule, we must always return to the intent of the Constitution, which was that Every American, from 16 – 60, capable of being armed, be trained to arms, preferably from an early age.
    According to Jefferson and Madison in their ‘Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions’, respectively, the final arbiters of the Constitution are not the Courts, but the States ad the People (collectively).
    The Federal gov’t. was granted 22 enumerated powers, by the Constitution, with the rest being left to the States and to the People. The vast majority of the powers currently being exercised by the Federal government are those which it has Unconstitutionally usurped from those same States and People.
    The Federal Government was explicitly prohibited from infringing upon the rights of the people to keep and bear arms, by the 2nd Amendment. The SCOTUS extended that prohibition to the States by incorporating the 14th Amendment against the States with reference to the 2nd Amendment, in ‘Heller’ and ‘McDonald’. You cannot incorporate a portion of an Amendment, you must incorporate the entire thing.
    Our Founding Fathers greatly distrusted a Standing Army, they also distrusted a ‘Select Militia’ (what would, today, be considered the National Guard and Reserves) trusting only to the ‘General Militia’, which was comprised of all of the people, capable of carrying arms, except for a few elected officials. The General Militia was expected to have the sort of firearms typically found to be in use in the military.
    The Militia Act of 1903 created the Unorganized Militia, to be comprised of men aged 17 – 28 and veterans up to age 60, expected to provide their own firearms and ammunition of a type commonly in use in the military. That would be Fully Automatic weapons, et., al., ad infinitum. According to Founding Father Tenche Coxe, ‘Congress shall have no right to disarm the people…all of the horrible weapons of war are the birthright of the American people….’ (1779)
    According to the FBI, hands and feet killed more people, annually, than do rifles of all types, combined. The number killed by, so called, ‘assault weapons’, (black plastic semi-automatic rifles that generally Look similar to the military variety, but do not preform the same) was so small as to not deserve it’s own category.
    Fully 98% of America’s violent crimes are being perpetrated by a mere 3-5% of our populace; young, male minorities, with young, black males committing more of such crimes of violence, than young, Hispanic males and young, white males, combined. To the extent that the #1 cause of death for young, black males is gunshot, by other young, black males. (FBI statistics)
    Obama lied when he said that the US is at the top of the list of nations with the highest numbers of violent crimes. We are actually at 112 of 218 nations.
    Obama lied when he said that Americas’ levels of violent crime are on the rise. Our levels of violent crime rates have been Falling for twenty (20) years now.
    Obama’s own mandated CDC study on firearms use, showed that guns are used far more often to prevent crimes of violence that to perpetrate such crimes. Yet he said just the opposite, lying again, as usual…
    Is it any wonder that he’s known as the ‘Lyin King’?
    “The only reason to disarm the people, would be to control them.” ~ Colonel George Mason Founding Father and (Anti-Federalist) Delegate to the Constitutional Convention.

  • petru sova October 30, 2015, 12:51 pm

    The higher court will decline to hear the case. This is standard procedure every time the Second Amendment is brought up. Look up the history of all the cases the Supreme Court refused to hear related to the Second Amendment. Remember the one case that did make it to the Supreme Court passed by only on vote. Think about that just one vote and the Second Amendment would have been destroyed forever,

  • Dennis October 30, 2015, 12:35 pm

    While we are all ranting and criticizing and quoting “facts”, did anyone notice that the quoted Second Amendment was quoted incorrectly? Go look it up in your copy of the Constitution. We need to at least get that right if we expect anyone to take our position seriously.

  • Dino October 30, 2015, 12:00 pm

    FIRST OF ALL THE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES SWORE AN OATH Article 6 Section 3 to Protect and Defend…They do NOT make Law..Furthermore by their Sworn Oath the as well as the President nor Congress, the Senate and EVERYONE in our National Security Apperattus is FORBIDDEN by the Constitution and their Oath to “Warring Against the Constitution” and if they do all they do is NULL and VOID…… Everything they are doing is NULL and VOID not to mention they too are guilty of Mis Prison of Treason for providing Crimninal Assistance to a known Criminal Kenyan BOrn New World Order Puppet Whore USURPER illegally in Office with no Legal Lawful or Constitutional power to do anything he has done since 2008 ….its all NULL and VOID!!!! They are all Criminally Ignoring ths because they are all whores for the NWO and allowed Obama to USURP the Office Deliberately and Criminally to do this…. THey all need to be MASS ARRESTED!

    This is the Law of this Land and they Swore and Oath to Protect and Defend it! By their Oath they are FORBIDDEN to “Warring Against the Constitution”
    these are blatant Violations to their Sworn Oath and an Open Act of High Treason and they are also guilty of Mis Prison of Treason for providing aide and comfort to a known Criminal Fraud USURPER who has no Legal Lawful or Constitutional Power to do anything being ignored because they allowed him as whores to the New World Order themselves to allow Obama to illegally USURP the Office of President…., They all need to be IMMEDIATELY Mass Arrested!!
    Constitution is clear….As long as a FRAUD USURPS the Office of President Congress and the Senate can make and pass no laws and if they do as they have done since 2008 and are still doing today acting as though what they are doing is Legal….. Its all NULL and VOID and have no power to enforce anything!!
    They are Actively Knowingly, Deliberately and Criminally in bed with our enemies providing to them aide and comfort and assisting them with this Overthrow as well trying to OVERTHROW a Nation and people they Swore to Protect and Defend! THIS IS CLEARLY A NOOSE AROUND THEIR NECKS AT THE GALLOWS!

    Neither the President (including a Criminal USURPER), Congress, the Senate, Supreme Court Justices, Federal Judges, nor the States, nor their Govenors and Mayors even through Laws Bills Amendments, Mandates, Executive Orders, and Even through Treaties, THEY STILL DO NOT POSSESS THE POWER TO Supersede, Bypass, Over ride, or USURP the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or our Sovereignty. They are all FORBIDDEN to”Waring Against the Constitution” to which they are all BOUND Article 6 Section 3. They are all operating OUTSIDE the Constitution in clear violation to their SWORN OATH giving themselves powers and authorities “they do not have”, making Contracts and Agreements with Foreign Governments and Enemy Agents for which “they have no Legal, Lawful or Constitutional power to make” (also in violation of the Logan Act) and are allowing these enemies to “Control Them” to overthrow our Nation for nothing but power and greed no matter who they hurt to enslave our Nation our people and the world into a Perverted Criminal Nazi NWO. They all Bow to a known proven Criminal Fraud USURPER as President (Just being Criminally ignored), provide aide and comfort to our enemies put our Allies into harms way, and have allowed our enemies to compromise our Government from within which makes them all Criminal Felons guilty of Sedition, Treason, Mis Prison of Treason, Conspiracy to Overthrow in addition to many other charges. They all need to be Immediately Mass Arrested and imprisoned for life and/or Hung at the Gallows….. We do have laws against Treason and we need to use them. They were not written just to give us something pretty to read on a rainy day!
    Globalist 10 point plan to take down America….. its Treason and they all MUST be arrested! They are nothing but Public Servants gone ROGUE! http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2015/07/03/the-globalist-ten-point-plan-to-destroy-america/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-globalist-ten-point-plan-to-destroy-america

    The following are two of the greatest lies the globalists continue to push upon the American people. Those lies are: “Treaties supersede the U.S. Constitution”.and: “A treaty, once passed, cannot be set aside”.
    HERE ARE THE CLEAR IRREFUTABLE FACTS: The U.S. Supreme Court has made it very clear that:

    1) Treaties do not override the U.S. Constitution. 2) Treaties cannot amend the Constitution. And last,3) A treaty can be nullified by a statute passed by the U.S. Congress (or by a sovereign State or States if Congress refuses to do so), when the State deems a treaty the performance of a treaty is self-destructive. The law of self-preservation overrules the law of obligation in others. When you’ve read this thoroughly, hopefully, you will never again sit quietly by when someone — anyone — claims that treaties supercede the Constitution. Help to dispell this myth.”This [Supreme] Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty.” – Reid v. Covert, October 1956, 354 U.S. 1, at pg 17.

    This case involved the question: Does the NATO Status of Forces Agreement (treaty) supersede the U.S. Constitution? Keep reading.The Reid Court (U.S. Supreme Court) held in their Opinion that,
    “… No agreement with a Foreign Nation can confer power on the Congress, or any other branch of government, which is free from the restraints of the Constitution. Article VI, the Supremacy clause of the Constitution declares, “This Constitution and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all the Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land…’

    “There is nothing in this language which intimates that treaties and laws enacted pursuant to them do not have to comply with the provisions of the Constitution nor is there anything in the debates which accompanied the drafting and ratification which even suggest such a result… “It would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, as well as those who were responsible for the Bill of Rights – let alone alien to our entire constitutional history and tradition – to construe Article VI as permitting the United States to exercise power UNDER an international agreement, without observing constitutional prohibitions. (See: Elliot’s Debates 1836 ed. – pgs 500-519).”In effect, such construction would permit amendment of that document in a manner not sanctioned by Article V. The prohibitions of the Constitution were designed to apply to all branches of the National Government and they cannot be nullified by the Executive or by the Executive and Senate combined.”

    Did you understand what the Supreme Court said here? No Executive Order, Presidential Directive, Executive Agreement, no NAFTA, GATT/WTO agreement/treaty, passed by ANYONE, can supersede the Constitution. FACT. No question!

    Wether its the Treaty, NDAA, TTP, Obama Care, Gun Control and the recent rulings of the Supreme Court:

    They are criminally in bed with and are allowing themselves to be controlled by foreign Governments and Enemy Agents in bed with England and the Vatican the Bilderbergs NWO, George Soros, Rothchild’s, Rockefeller’s, and openly support a New World Order Agenda that is TREASON against the very Nation they SWORE TO PROTECT AND DEFEND and “Making War Against the Constitution”, America and the American people …. see Davis vs Weschler, Miranda vs Arizona, Sherer vs Cullen, Norton vs Shelby County, Cooper vs Aaron. ANYONE of these Judges, Congressmen, Senetors, anyone throughout our entire National Security Appirattis are all FORBIDDEN to “War Against the Constitution” without Violating the undertaking of their Sworn Oath to support and uphold it Article 6 Section 3 to which they are BOUND! Everything they do in Violation to their Oath and the Constitution is NULL and VOID!

    Davis vs Wechsler, 263 US 22, 24……. “Where Rights Secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would Abrogate them”!

    Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 ……………. Of the Constitution ….. The Origional 1776 Pennsylvania Constitution of our ForeFathers….NOT….. the Illegally created and re written USA CORPORATION Constitution 1871 created illegally and forced upon the people without their knowledge and consent by King George and his whores in the 41st Congress. Article 1 Section 7 Clause 2 was deliberately re written because the New World Order Left does not want you to know these things and here below is the origional:

    No laws of Congress are valid

    “Congress can pass no law while a usurper pretends to occupy “the Office of President. ”The Constitution provides that “[e]very Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States ” (Article I, Section 7, Clause 2). Not to a usurper posturing as “the President of the United States,” but to the true and rightful President. If no such true and rightful President occupies the White House, no “Bill” will or can, “before it become a Law, be presented to [him].” If no “Bill” is so presented, no “Bill” will or can become a “Law.” And any purported “Law” that the usurper “approve[s]” and “sign[s],” or that Congress passes over the usurper’s “Objections,” will be a nullity. Thus, if Obama deceitfully “enters office” as an usurper, (Which he did with the Criminal Assistance of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reed and the DNC and others already proven just being Criminally ignored) will be rendered effectively impotent for as long as it acquiesces in his pretenses as “President.””

    Furthermore, Obama Could not be Removed Except by Force. As a USURPER posturing as “the President,” Congress cannot even impeach Obama because, not being the actual President, he cannot be “removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” (see Article II, Section 4). In that case, some other public officials would have to arrest him—with physical force, if he would not go along quietly—in order to prevent him from continuing his imposture. Obviously, this could possibly lead to armed conflicts within the General Government itself, or among the States and the people. (This must happen there is no other way)

    ALSO, Bear in mind, that as an imposter Commander–in-Chief of the Armed Forces, “he will be entitled to no obedience whatsoever from anyone in those Armed forces and Law Enforcment. Indeed, for officers or men to follow any of his purported “orders” including law enforcement will constitute a serious breach of military discipline—and in extreme circumstances even charged with “war crimes.” In addition, no one in any civilian agency in the Executive Branch of the General Government (s) will be required to put into effect any of Obama’s purported “proclamations,” “executive orders,” or “directives” (Viera, J.).

    The Constitution weather they chose to ignore it “is the Supreme Law of this Land” and they are BOUND to it Article 6 Section 3 and are all FORBIDDEN to “warring Against it”….all they do is NULL and VOID not to mention they have been Criminally DeFacto since 1871! Everything that has been done since 2008 is also NULL and VOID as well as everything that has been done since 1871! Because it, the installation of their Criminal USA CORPORATION, the Criminal and Deliberate re writing of our Constitution, and the selling of our Birth Cirtificates on the Open Stock Market was done Deliberately, Criminally to Deceive and Defraud the American People and FORCE THEM into a British & Vatican, Illuminati Controlled Debt Fraud Slavery (Maritine) System wthout the KNOWLEDGE and without the CONSENT of the American People…..2 things required to make any contract legally binding! It was an act of High Treason and they had no Legal Lawful or Constitutional power to do anything they did……its NULL and VOID and EVERYTHING they have done to advance their Criminal Satanic Nazi New World Order since 1871 (which are also Criminally Subversive Open Acts of High Treason) behind the backs of the American People ie., the passing of Laws, Bills, Amendments, Executive Orders, Mandates, and Treaties are also NULL AND VOID! Hence, the Origional 1776 Constitution of our Fore Fathers is STILL LEGALLY IN PLAY and very much alive!

    Be prepared. I realize that may be a Boy Scout creed but in this case it truly does apply. Make no mistake Obama is going to pull all of the stops out, if the SC takes up this case. I see 3 things happening. 1: SC upholds the right to our “black rifles” 2: Justice Roberts maybe the weak link, maybe extortion, threats or other pressures. I do not think this govt will stop at anything to get what Obama wants including breaking laws. 3: SC states that we do not have a “right” to our rifles being of a certain type. #2 & #3 are very worrisome. If that happens what stops Obama from ordering a MASSIVE and I mean MASSIVE confiscation of said firearms? Will it stop at one type of weapon? oh hell no. What shall we do? Be prepared. Molon Labe

    • hoochbear July 1, 2016, 8:29 am

      Obama should first start confiscating guns on the streets of Chicago to learn he never learned.

  • Mahatma Muhjesbude October 30, 2015, 9:09 am

    Good work on keeping up with the latest anti-Constitutional attacks on our liberties, Mr. Blannelberry. This is really a bad blow to liberty and I can see the other Fascist states like Illinois drooling at the mouth on this one and following up sooner than a Chicago Garbage truck can plow and salt a side street in a snow storm? ‘They’ are going to introduce as many of these illegal ‘laws’ as soon as they can so that everything is ready for the final assault to our Constitution when Hillary takes the throne. I just saw the ‘judicial watch’ newest bill in my email and have to go peruse it later. Something about mandatory registration now of ‘stolen or lost’ weapons and something else about ‘mental health’ along with it??? Of course Hillary’s main PAC group, the Main Stream Media will never ‘mention’ it in any news reports.

    What these ‘evile’ agenda based closet Marxist black robed SCOTUS devils casually avoid and ‘misinterpret’ and manipulate is twofold.

    1. They intentionally and illegally misinterpret the clear and absolute phrase ‘Shall Not Be Infringed’ to be open ended and subject to ‘change’, which of course does, amount to tacit infringement then.

    As for case law proving the exact meaning of the 2nd/A there is no dearth of mostly consensus that there is no exclusionary interpretation…ie., that it does say, or mean ‘…shall not be infringed…EXCEPT for military style semi-auto rifles with high capacity mags, etc. It clearly does not say that. Heller is flawed. And nowhere in the 2nd/A is it implied or explicitly noted that if another totalitarian bent State decides it wants to ‘infringe upon it’ for the proven specious notion of ‘Public Safety’ (proved in admitted contradiction by municipal and Police administrative acknowledgement that they cannot provide nor guarantee a status quo of Public Safety’ anywhere anytime.) that they are arbitrarily allowed to do so.

    And, the 2nd/A does NOT in any capacity EXclude any particular firearm or any weapon for that matter, in the broader sense, supporting UN-limited ‘right to bear’, which SHOULD be the converse of the flawed Heller argument. IOW, yes, the 2/A does not specifically state what you can have, BUT it doesn’t specifically state what you CAN’t have either! So you cannot, in reasonable objectiveness and equitable conclusion determine one subjective presumption over another. Again, just because it says only ‘…the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” without specification of AR-15s, DOES NOT FUCKING MEAN YOU CAN’T HAVE ONE, based on someone else’s subjective agenda based social engineering misinterpretations. In logical follow up it is actually a more reasonable assumption-which is all these court decisions/rulings attempt to claim, that if it didn’t specify exclusive exceptions, then THERE WEREN’T ANY! So that’s the 2/A law, and these totalitarian states cannot legally change it! Except by tyrannical fiat and decree.

    There’s other case law interpretation on what kind of ‘arms’ were ‘beared’ at the time which meant anything and everything the average Patriot could get their revolutionary hands on, including a field cannon, if you wanted one on your front lawn! No where was ‘social relevances’ mentioned or Public Safety or any need for ‘Enhanced Crime Prevention’

    2. The intentional redaction, interpolation, and agenda based manipulation of the 10th/A and States ‘rights’ to make its own laws ‘supposedly’ Not covered by the Constitution where they incorrectly ‘reason’ on their illegal hay ride hootenanny down the slippery East slope of Mt. Tyranny that since no ‘assault type’ weapons were mentioned in the 2/A then they must not be protected and can be ‘restricted’. The difference between ‘situational restrictions and limitations’ such as not being ‘allowed’ to enter a courtroom or secret military base or private enterprise with your firearm unless ‘authorized’, and outright ‘banning of the possession and ownership’ just because of what ‘Kind’ of firearm it is becomes a major distinction and fraudulent corruption in the truthful interpretation of the 2/A in relationship to the 10th/A. Because the idea of Any type of weapons being ‘allowed’ to ‘keep and bear’ speaks for itself in the strictest interpretation of the 2/A , arbitrary exclusions and exceptions not withstanding. So the protection and guarantee of your right to have an unholy ‘black rifle’ definitely IS covered by the 2/A and CAN’T be FUCKED with by some radical Marxist Rogue State and its corrupt courts.

    The ACLU should get their dumb noses out of the asses of the LGBC–or whatever it’s called bandwagon–and concentrate more on the principal foundational amendment of our crumbling Constitution which single handedly provides the basis of which ALL our other liberties are protected. Keep appealing this until righteousness prevails, or at least everybody can no longer dismiss the abject corruption of our governments. A class action lawsuit against the ‘lawmakers’ and Judicial fact finding ‘interpreters’ themselves and their subjective agenda based mishandling of the process should be initiated if that’s at all even possible as they may be immune at that point. (GA Editors are of known prestige and respect so why don’t you guys send the ACLU a query that you are thinking about doing and series article on true Patriotic organizations and want to know if they would like to tell us exactly what they are doing about the assault on our precious 2nd Amendment? That should choke em out of their donation drunk stupor a little?

    “When the Fascists deliver the final death blow to the precious 2nd Amendment, the soul of the Constitution and the spirit of the American Law of the Land, will have died with it, and all the Freedom you ever thought you had…will be gone. .”–P.J. Klipangle

  • Ram6 October 30, 2015, 7:42 am

    Here is my take on the whole idea of the Supreme Court deciding what is and what is not constitutional. It’s really not their job. Any court ruling on the plain meaning of the 2nd amendment is bogus. They have no constitutional right to usurp any section of the constitution. If the judiciary has sole power of constitutional interpretation, then the Constitution “is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.” Thomas Jefferson.

    The Supreme Court of the United States spends much, if not most, of its time on a task which is not delegated to the Supreme Court by the Constitution. That task is: Hearing cases wherein the constitutionality of a law or regulation is challenged. The Supreme Court’s nine Justices attempt to sort out what is, and what is not constitutional. This process is known as Judicial Review.

    But the states, in drafting the Constitution, did not delegate such a power to the Supreme Court, or to any branch of the government. Once again I quote Thomas Jefferson who wrote, in 1823:

    “At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government. Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance. In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life, if secured against all liability to account.”

    Consequently it’s ruling on “gay marriage” is NOT the law of the land. It is merely the belief of 5 lawyers in black robes in Washington D.C. and has no foundation in the constitution any more than the “emanations and penumbras” led to the usurpation of the state’s homicide laws and imposed the Roe v. Wade decision on the entire country by fiat. The court took it upon itself to become the final arbiter of what is and is not constitutional and it’s time for this practice to cease.

    • J Bunker October 30, 2015, 8:35 am

      RAM6, the umbras and penumbras argument continues to blow me away. It basically says there is not limit on the supreme court.

    • Paul October 30, 2015, 11:37 am

      Apparently, you want not only freedom, but the right to determine who else should have freedom. I asume you will be the final arbiter of which freedoms matter.

      How about this? You can have any guns you want, and if one is used in a crime, you are held responsible. Or os that too much responsibility?

    • L.Ron Hubbub October 30, 2015, 4:57 pm

      BRAVO, Ram6! Thanx for the unassailable analysis. The Founding Lawyers purposely concocted a Supreme Court that couldn’t be “second guessed” or held accountable via recall, in the furtherance of constructing (over time) an all powerful Central Government. And in that light, the world continues to operate through trickery, treachery and force, and the LAW profession keeps binding us down inch by inch, year by year in their ongoing task of delivering EVERYONE to totalitarianism. Guns are the teeth of liberty, or we’d already be under total control. Eternal vigilance continues to be the price of freedom, and every one of Jefferson’s warnings have proven true. “Law” has become a charade of glib legerdemain and pilpulistic verbal acrobatics, with common sense is being relegated to obscurity. Keep your powder dry, and folks might want to check out “Hologram Of Liberty” by Kenneth W.

          What Ed DID say, is that a person who is SO PARANOID, and likely deranged, would be a danger to us sane folks. I am a gun owner, and I would not like to have Ed as a neighbor.
          Your response, threatening violence for an opinion, is also troubling. It’s you and your ilk who prevent a reasonable dialog between gun folks and control folks, and therefore keep us stuck in this sh***y situation we all dislike so much.

  • SuperG October 26, 2015, 1:36 pm

    Normally, I’d believe that the SC would rule in favor of gun owners, but some of their decisions have caused me great worry. Taking off the restrictions of campaign finance has caused us great harm. I can only hope they take the second amendment seriously, as it doesn’t need to be “interpreted” to glean its meaning. Since there are so many semi-auto rifles with detachable magazines already out there, it would be idiotic to try and ban them, and it is illegal for the government to make something retroactively illegal. In other words, it would be pointless stupidity.

    • Texas001 October 30, 2015, 5:59 am

      SuperG, don’t be too sure that the Xtreme court would do some idiotic. Look how John Roberts “re-wrote” 0bamacare and then ruled it constitutional. Supposed to be the highest court in the land have lowered themselves to total dis-trust by many.

People need to wake up and stand strong and we will win and can win.

  • DRAINO October 22, 2015, 8:26 am

    • Aaron October 23, 2015, 9:54 am

      Slavery was NOT abolished in the United States. That’s an outright lie – whoever told you that must not think very highly of you.

      Slavery is absolutely constitutional. It’s called the Thirteenth Amendment and it represents everything wrong with this country.

      • PatrickJT October 30, 2015, 9:17 am

        You are very confused. The 13th Amendment to the Constitution declared that “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.”

        The fact is YOU represent everything wrong with this country.

        • Jay June 17, 2017, 4:29 am

          He’s got that right. When president Johnson (right, it wasn’t Lincoln) signed the 13th Amendment into law the Yankee government was very careful to keep the power to enslave unto itself. One might argue that enslavement would fall under the description of “cruel and unusual punishment.” But, what IS that anyway. A passing fad, state of opinion at a certain time. Once upon a time in this country water boarding a captive would never have been condoned. Seems that these days it isn’t considered exactly torture after all. So how long do you think it would take some spinmeister to convince people that enslavement, “life at hard labor” was more humane than some other punishments, say execution, and not really so unusual afterall.

    • Johnh October 30, 2015, 11:44 am

      The 2016 election is very important to our nation. Some Supreme Court Judges are getting very old and want to retire. If the Democrats win this election they will stack the Supreme Court against us. They will run all over the common people. You just might tell your friends that stay at home and not vote just because there is some little thing they don’t like. They will not like what is going to happen other wise.

        You could not be more right . If any democrat gets in and appoints even one anti-gun “justice” your choice of defense rifles will be outlawed by the supreme court .

          … and if we get another Sam Alito or Clarence Thomas on the court, privacy is gone, fairness is gone, honesty is gone,
          Take your pick (although I’m pretty sure I know what that pick will be)

          Clowns (Hillary) and Socialists to the left. Joker (Donald) and Democrat Haters and Water Starters to the right. 100’s of millions of good Americans stuck in the middle. Ultra liberals think they can wish laws that will cove rall human behaviors. Far right wing nuts think they just need to elect representatives of God to Congress. God can well take care of himself. After 16 years of crappy presidents, neither party will turn to the business of the People of the US. And if either Hillary selects a left nut for running mate, or Donald selects an imbecile right nut like Newt the Gin Grinch, we’re even worse off. Each should pick a sane running mate so when one surpasses totally their level of incompetency on anything, someone will be left who gives a damn about the country.
