As we reported last week, on November 16, the NRA filed its brief with the U.S. Supreme Court as Respondent in Support of Petitioner in McDonald v. City of Chicago. The NRA brief asks the U.S. Supreme Court to hold that the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments through the Fourteenth Amendment.

The McDonald case is one of several that were filed immediately after last year’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, in which the Court upheld the Second Amendment as an individual right and invalidated Washington, D.C.’s ban on handgun possession, as well as the capital city’s ban on keeping loaded, operable firearms for self-defense in the home.

In September, the Supreme Court agreed to consider the McDonald case, on appeal from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. That court incorrectly claimed that prior Supreme Court precedent prevented it from holding in favor of incorporation of the Second Amendment. As we argued at the time, the Seventh Circuit should have followed the lead of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Nordyke v. King, which found that Supreme Court precedent does not prevent the Second Amendment from applying to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment’s Due Process Clause.

As a party in McDonald, the NRA is actively involved in this case and we believe our brief makes a clear and strong case in favor of incorporation of the Second Amendment (to see a copy of NRA’s brief, please click here).

Support for incorporation of the Second Amendment is very strong, and numerous additional briefs have recently been filed and signed by both federal and state officials.

This week, an overwhelming, bipartisan majority of members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate signed an amicus curiae, or “friend of the court,” brief supporting the NRA’s position that the Second Amendment is incorporated against the states through the Fourteenth Amendment. The amicus brief bears the signatures of a record 251 Members of Congress and 58 Senators—the most signers of a congressional amicus brief in the history of the Supreme Court (in last year’s historic Heller case, a then-record 55 Senators and 250 Representatives signed an amicus brief supporting the Second Amendment as an individual right). (To see a copy of this brief, please click here.)

In addition to the federal brief, a large bipartisan group of state legislators and other elected officials from all 50 states, along with more than three-fourths of state attorneys general also filed amicus curiae briefs in the McDonald case this week. They, too, are supporting the NRA’s position that the Second Amendment is incorporated against the states through the Fourteenth Amendment.

The state legislators’ brief bears the signatures of 891 state legislators and other elected officials—including two governors and three lieutenant governors. The state attorneys’ general brief was prepared by the office of Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R) and bears the signatures of attorneys general from 38 states. Both of these briefs were filed with the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday. (To see a copy of the state legislators’ brief, please click here. To see a copy of the state attorneys’ general brief, please click here.)

The NRA is gratified that so many members of Congress along with a large number of state legislators and state attorneys general have joined this historic effort in support of our Second Amendment freedoms. Along with gun owners everywhere, we are grateful for their participation in ensuring that the Second Amendment applies across the nation, not just in federal enclaves.

“It is our sincere hope that the Supreme Court will follow the Constitution’s true meaning and hold that the Second Amendment applies to all law-abiding Americans, no matter what city or state they call home,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox.

Chicago has had a handgun ban and other restrictive gun laws in place for 27 years. The Supreme Court is expected to hear arguments on McDonald v. the City of Chicago case in February 2010.

Navy Seals

Posted: November 26, 2009 in Fallujah, insurgent, Iraq, seals

If you all remember the four Blackwater contractors were ambushed by insurgents on March 31, 2004. They were dragged from their vehicle, burned, paraded through the streets, and strung up on a bridge in Fallujah, Iraq. In the news yesterday there was an article about how the Navy Seals captured and detained the mastermind of this ambush, Ahmed Hashim Abed. Abed told investigators that “he was punched in the face by his captors and had a bloody lip to prove it.” Now instead of being praised for the capture of Abed, three Seals are facing charges. All three have chosen trial by court-martial over Admiral’s Mast. Admiral’s Mast isn’t a trial, but a ruling from a commanding officer, in this case an Admiral. This is so fucked up. This is one of the reasons why I got out of the Navy. This man killed hundreds, maybe thousands and he gets a fat lip, so what this shit head should be happy to be alive. If it was up to me I would have him killed at first site, or death by firing squad. This is just some more of the U.S. getting soft, and turning us into a bunch of pussies.

So now days it means shit to have rights as an American.  The terrorist who blow up the World Trade Center are now being tried in our courts and given rights as an American citizen.  That really pisses me off.  I fought and shed blood for the rights of the American people.  Now our wonderful government has just given those rights away.  I am so done with this government.  I really don’t even know what to say, so I will just leave it at that.  What a fucked up government.  The blood that my brothers, sisters, and I shed mean NOTHING to them. 

Veterans Day

Posted: November 11, 2009 in congress, uncommon sense, Veterans day

Today is Veterans Day, so I just wanted to say Thank you so much to all the Vets out there. As a vet I know a little of the shit that they are going through. I know the VA is screwing over just about all of us and we cannot do a damn thing about it. I also know that the Federal Government keeps selling us down the river.

If we do not come together then we as Americans might just be speaking Chinese or something else. I believe that the states must stand up to the Fed. Government and tell them to stick it up their ass. It is starting to happen, just look at the medical marijuana. The states must stand up to the big government, one by not supporting the income tax. If we as a people use our Constitutional rights given to use by God, not the Federal Government, then we will be able to turn this mess around. The government keeps spending more money, and passing more laws, and they are not even following the laws that they have passed. Just look 44% of Congress are millionaires, but only 1% of the rest of the population are millionaires. There is something very wrong with that. The Congress is supposed to work for us, not the other way around. Congress keeps going and passing all of these laws and people don’t really seem to care. Those of us who care must stand together. Before we can stand together, we must stand alone. To stand alone, we must voice our opinions to other so they can see the way that the U.S. is going. The way it is going is down the shitter. Those with the knowledge that I like to call uncommon sense, the knowledge that a person or government can’t spend more money to save more. Also the government cannot keep raising their salaries without something bad happening. We must tell Congress to FUCK OFF and take a pay cut; they should not be making more than $30,000. The President of the United States should not make more than $50,000; he does not even pay rent for the White House.

There is no other way than to step up to the plate, and make the hard choices. Those of use that take this road less traveled, we will not be liked, and we will be hated. Just like all of our Founding Fathers we will be the bad guys today, but we will go down in history as the next Fathers of our Country. Above all we must not fire the first shot. We must use our words, not our guns. There has been enough bloodshed, we need not more.

It has been a while since my last blog. I have not been doing too well lately. My PTSD is still getting worse. I don’t know why but I am having bad dreams and getting really pissed off over nothing much. I have made an appointment with my Mental Health provider; we will see how that goes.

I bought Glenn Beck’s Common Sense when it first came out. I tried to read it but lost interest. So it sat on my book shelf until I was doing a little cleaning (which is not much). I pick it back up and now I can’t put it down. When I started reading it again it was as if Glenn was talking to me, and he understood everything that I was feeling. I am really pissed off at the way the government is being ran. I used to never talk about politics or religion, but now someone needs to talk about it. The country that I love and put my life on the line for has developed a really bad tumor. Now as a fighter for this country I and everyone else need to stand up and do something about it. I agree with Mr. Beck that we are not talking about violence, but using our God given rights as Americans to stand up and put a stop to this bull. In Mr. Beck’s book Common Sense page 15 he asks some questions that I think are VERY important. See what you think, these are the questions as written in Common Sense:

1. Do you trust those in power to always tell you the hard truth—especially if it would hurt them at election time? I say no, but that is what they were elected to do.

2. How is it possible that every president since Jimmy Carter has promised to lower our dependence on foreign oil, but now we import more oil than ever from countries that do us harm? I think that we need to close all borders and not let any foreign products in unless we have an equal or greater export to that same country that we get the products from.

3. Are we to honestly believe that the country that took the idea of a man walking on the moon and turned it into a reality within eight years, or the country that built a transcontinental railroad in seven years (without power tools) doesn’t have the ability to completely build a 670-mile fence along our southern border that was promised in 2005? I say that big government doesn’t want to, because then the poor people from the south would not be able to come into the USA illegally. Then the elected officials would not have their votes. But wait you say, yes the Speaker of the House Nancy P. wants to let them vote, which is where ACORN comes in.

4. Why are the same politicians who insist that America is a “melting pot” the first ones to insist that different races, nationalities, and ethnicities retain their distinct languages, identities, and practices? I say that we all are Americans; we need to come tighter and fight the problems head on. The reason for the Politian’s wanting this is so we keep fight amongst ourselves so that they may sit in Washington D.C. and make a bunch of money and sell the American people down the river, which there is no return.

5. Why are those who respectfully question science behind global warming mocked and condemned? That is because it is all a big fat distraction. This also ties in to the wanting us to not pay attention to what they are really doing. If we are looking one way then they can once again sell us down the river.

6. Do you believe that you’re elected representative view themselves as truly being “public servants” who place your well being above their own? Hell no they don’t!!! They get into politics for the money, the connections, and the fame. Serving your country should be an honor not just a paycheck. Look at the military we join because it is the right thing to do, in our opinion. That is why I think the any elected representative local or national should not be able to make over $50,000 a year. I think that since Washington made the mess, all of them should take a pay cut to help fix the National Debt.

7. Do you believe that those in Washington see your face when they make decisions or, instead, the faces of those who richly contribute to their campaign? I think all they see are $, and that is all that really matters to them, themselves. It is no longer the way of life to help their neighbor unless there is something in it for themselves.

8. Do you believe that our “public servants” have your best interests at heart and will defend your life, liberty, and property? Once again Hell no. It is a sham the way this country has gone down the drain. We must support and defend the Constatution of the United States, no matter what. Even if the President says we need to do this if it does not go with the Constitution, then we must not do it. We must fight and do everything that we can so that the living breathing thing called the Constitution will remain the most important document above all else.

I have just recently joined a group called the Oath Keepers this is their motto:

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution.

I for one believe that the time of niceness is over. Every person who agrees with me, we must stand up and fight for what is ours. If we don’t stand up then I think that no one will, and the USA and Constitution that we all love will no longer matter. With that said I leave you all to think about the future of the country that I love and fought for.
