Conservatives make gun issue new rallying cry
An immigration debate is raging and a budget crisis looms in Congress, but the conservative activists gathered outside the New Hampshire Statehouse had just one thing on their minds: guns.

"There is an assault going on on the Constitution"
I am in absolute agreement that there is, in fact.
The very principles of our nation are under attack.
The charge is being led by a commander in chief who IMO is failing to uphold those principles.
He needs to be removed from office ASAP, IMAO.

"The Second Amendment is there to protect us from losing the rest of them," said Adam Brisebois, 34, of Hudson, who cradled his 3-year-old daughter on his right shoulder and a rifle on the left. "If we don't fight, we'll lose our rights."
Not a peep from republicans when the "Patriot" Act was passed.
"Thursday's rally, organized by tea party leaders, drew nearly 500 people, many of them waving signs and carrying loaded weapons, to the state capital. Conservative leaders elsewhere report a wave of similar protests as grass-roots activists from Florida to Colorado seize on a new rallying cry".
More like astro turf.

"It doesn't matter that neither President Barack Obama nor congressional Democrats are calling for a wholesale repeal of gun rights. Tea partyers are enraged by the possibility of any erosion of the Second Amendment's "right of the people to keep and bear arms."
NO one is suggesting that, except teabaggers.
"I think without any doubt, if you look at why our Founding Fathers put (the Second Amendment) there, they had lived under the tyranny of King George and they wanted to make sure that these free people in this new country would never be subjugated again and have to live under tyranny," Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the National Rifle Association said in a congressional hearing last week.
You "thought" wrong.
See "Patriot" Act and you'll find your guns can and will be conficated.
Not a peep from Wayne then.

To Members of the U.S. House of Representatives:
We are writing to urge your support for a ban on the domestic manufacture of military-style assault weapons. This is a matter of vital importance to the public safety. Although assualt weapons account for less than 1% of the guns in circulation, they account for nearly 10% of the guns traced to crime.
Every major law enforcement organization in America and dozens of leading labor, medical, religious, civil rights and civic groups support such a ban. Most importantly, poll after poll shows that the American public overwhelmingly support a ban on assault weapons. A 1993 CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll found that 77% of Americans support a ban on the manufacture, sale, and possession of semi-automatic assault guns, such as the AK-47.
The 1989 import ban resulted in an impressive 40% drop in imported assault weapons traced to crime between 1989 and 1991, but the killing continues. Last year, a killer armed with two TEC9s killed eight people at a San Francisco law firm and wounded several others. During the past five years, more than 40 law enforcement officers have been killed or wounded in the line of duty by an assault weapon.
While we recognize that assault weapon legislation will not stop all assault weapon crime, statistics prove that we can dry up the supply of these guns, making them less accessible to criminals. We urge you to listen to the American public and to the law enforcement community and support a ban on the further manufacture of these weapons.

NRA, a dozen Sandy Hooks is a small price to pay, to make sure criminals have all the guns they want.

Well they better change the tune fast.People will soon get tired of family members being gunned down like dog's by these weapons. What a thing to rally.Very sad day when they rather eat with the NRA over getting dangerous weapons off the streets

Great sentiment, but I am not a Republican, nor am I a Tea-party lackey. I fall closest to the Libertarian party, if any. I did cry foul on the Patriot Act, as well as the NDAA, and countless other tyrannical grabs against our rights.
Republicans and Democrats are both guilty of treason for their slow and steady erosion of our constitution and the basic fabric of this nation. Very few elected officials of the last 100 years are innocent of that crime.
I am a staunch supporter of all the amendments in the bill of rights, and expect my government to abide by the rules set forth in that document. Horrible misinterpretations and usurpation by those who crave more power have brought us to the sorry state of affairs we currently reside in.

Very well put and couldn't agree more.
Our government bows to $$$$$$ and only $$$$$$.
The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 didn't happen because of the will of the people or by accident.
Most of the laws wars and laws enacted since then were by people who already have money.
With that comes the power and ego to enact laws that benifit them, the constitution be damned.
