The Silent Majority Must Find Its Voice on Gun Control

May 4, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: TheAlternativePress.com

Hours before community residents gathered at Temple Emanu-El in Westfield to hear a panel discussion on common sense gun control, a five-year-old in Kentucky picked up his rifle, which he had received as a gift the year before, and shot and killed his two-year-old sister.

Propaganda Alert! The silent majority already has a voice. It's called the ballot box. If there really was a "silent majority" desiring tighter gun laws we wouldn't even be having this debate. Another article written by a student of Goebbles: "Repeat a lie often enough and it will become fact."

I wonder how much these press-titutes are getting paid to commit treason against our nation. And who is paying them for their betrayal?

If Obama hadn't been caught twice committing voter fraud, I might believe he won and was elected by the people.

Why did your 'master' obama accept well over a BILLION dollars in campaign contributions from George Soros. A foreigner with a long history of rabid desire for gun control? Is that not TREASON?

"Here, then, every man,--whether native or naturalized, whether free or bond--for the provision comprehended every class and colour--every man capable of shouldering a musket, was required to be trained and armed, by our present Constitution; and the proposed to it, designates the militia as only to be for defence, and in this view Blackstone himself regarded the militia. The very second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, previous to which several of the States had refused to come into the compact, he begged to recommend to the attention of his friend from Allegheny,(Mr. Forward)--"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." Mark the admirable adaption of the language. There is said (Mr. I) an argument in it more than I could make in a year, all condensed. A regulated right of every man, to do what? To hear arms--and the Constitution says this right to bear arms "shall not be infringed." This "well regulated militia," which is "necessary to the security of a free State" is the right of every man to bear arms, and it is a right which "shall not be infringed." And when his friend from Allegheny said at first,(as he had understood him,) that the federal power absorbed all the rights of the states on this subject, he (.Mr I) confessed that he had felt himself excited almost to pugnacity. This right exceeded, was beyond the reach of the federal Constitution--it was supreme, above the supremacy of the Constitution--it was a right which the Constitution could not touch. It was nothing less than man's right to self defence, that power which could not be impaired by any power of government."

- Mr. Charles Jared Ingersoll, Oct. 24, 1837, PROCEEDINGS AND DEBATES OF THE CONVENTION OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, TO PROPOSE AMENDMENTS TO THE CONSTITUTION, COMMENCED AT HARRISBURG MAY 2 1837 VOL. IV. Reported by JOHN AGG, Stenographer: Assisted By Messrs. Wheeler, Kingman, Draks, and McKinley. HARRISBURG: PRINTED BY PACKER, BARRETT, And PARKE. 1838.(Ingersoll served twice as a United States representative, first from 1813 to 1815 and again from 1841 to 1847. In between these terms, he worked as the United States attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania from 1815 to 1829 by appointment from President James Madison, was Pennsylvania state representative in 1830, and in 1837, was a delegate to the Pennsylvania state constitutional convention. Over the course of his governmental career, Ingersoll worked with a few U. S. presidents such as James Monroe, John Tyler, and James K. Polk).

You waste your time. That yawn person from New Mexico, that changes his name all the time, but always from there, has been determined to be a Topix Troll on the '2nd Amendment stop tyranny' thread.
He never contributes, only sarcasm and instigate.
The troll does, however, permit me the opportunity to post the actual FACTS concerning our right. In order that every person reading may learn the truth of what our right actually is. And, that our governments have ZERO authority over it. It was specifically REMOVED from their delegated power, or authority. And, it exists whether the militia does or not.

The above being the actual REALITY of FACTS. Proves that our governments have usurped the power, and have VIOLATED our Constitution. Thus providing ABSOLUTE PROOF that ALL of their Constitutionally perverse 'gun control laws'. Are totally NULL and VOID. Having no bearing, substance, or weight. That they are merely tyrannical usurpations to be disregarded at will by We The People. And, any law enforcement officer that attempts to enforce
those 'laws'. Is guilty of the high crime of treason. For they are indeed violating the oath they took to "uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States". And are aiding and abetting the traitors that passed the unconstitutional dictate to begin with.

How did some lame brain mark this as incendiary and spam? This is our actual political system. This is simply the facts of our system, and how it is set up.

The president is the executive. His job is to enforce the laws that the House creates. He does not or is not supposed to create law.
he is voted in to enforce the law created by the congress.
He won by less than 2% of the vote over the other person, so there is no mandate except for him to be a slightly better law enforcer.
Congress give him the power to create administrative agencies such as the FAA to create all the rules that would be impracticle for congress to spend their time on. They are given a general mandate and they are supposed to follow the spirit of that Congress mandate.
The House is voted in to create laws.
Americans seem to know little of their own political system.

Now what was it the LIE-berals have been saying about the militia and the right to arms?...

"Let me ask attention to an illustration nearer home. The only case in which there has ever existed a real necessity for the interposition of military force to preserve the peace in Massachusetts.(except in the days of 1775, when the PEOPLE TOOK ARMS, to put down the military,) was the "Shay's Rebellion;" and then, gentlemen who glorify the militia must remember the PEOPLE ARMED THEMSELVES to suppress an insurrection headed by a militia officer, with militia men for the mass of his followers.

"Now, Mr. Chairman, gentlemen talk about the necessity of this volunteer militia, in order to prevent mobs in Massachusetts. Let me ask, Sir, how many there are of them? I understand that the whole number is not more than four or five thousand: or at the farthest, we may say seven thousand. Now, can any gentleman seriously suppose that the peace of this whole Commonwealth is preserved by this insignificant body men? Sir, it is the law-abiding, peace-loving, order-preserving citizens of Massachusetts, whom we are indebted for the feeling of which we enjoy."

- Francis W. Bird, June 20, 1853,[OFFICIAL REPORT OF THE DEBATES AND PROCEEDINGS IN THE STATE CONVENTION, ASSEMBLED MAY 4TH, 1853, TO REVISE AND AMEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE Commonwealth of Massachusetts VOLUME SECOND. BOSTON: WHITE
& POTTER, PRINTERS TO THE CONVENTION, 1853.]
