Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment… Leaves Millions Furious

One common criticism of billionaire businessman and President-elect Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues.

That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website.

“The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period,” the position paper began.

Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution, noting that government didn’t create the right, nor can it take it away.

He also rightly denoted the Second Amendment as “America’s first freedom,” pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.

In order to protect and defend that right, Trump proposed tougher enforcement of laws that are already on the books, rather than adding new gun control laws.

Citing a successful program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison, Trump noted that crime rates will fall dramatically when criminals are taken off the streets for lengthy periods of time.

Trump also proposed strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves from criminals using their own guns, without fear of repercussion from the government.

Noting that many of the recent high-profile shooters had clear mental problems that should have been addressed, Trump proposed fixing our nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment opportunities for the non-violent mentally ill, but removing from the streets those people who pose a danger to themselves and others.

Trump would do away with pointless and ineffective gun and magazine bans and suggested fixing the current background check system already in place, rather than expanding a broken system.

Information Overload

Have you ever experienced little dots flashing before your eyes? I always chalk it up to being tired and stressed.

Lately, I’m feeling so stressed trying to keep up with all the information and all the happenings in the news. I feel like  years have passed since the 2016 election process started.

Has it been 10 years this has been going on? That’s how it feels to me.

Ever since Obama took office it’s been one thing after another; a new regulation; a new Executive Order no matter how unconstitutional it is; one injustice after another; bringing in so many refugees without vetting; the failed economic policies; his unjustified wars; his war against us.

Elites, globalists, Agenda 21, the UN, Establishment politicians, never Trumpers, BLM, Shooting cops, anarchy. What more could one ask for in information overload? Far too much going on all at once. I think it’s called “deliberate chaos” to keep us off-balance.

Then the election process starts and new stories, new lies, Wikileaks dumps, the MSM bias and their lies, the polls, electoral maps, Hillary scandals, Trump’s faux pas.

My brain feels like it exploded at some point by so much to take in from these information overloads, that my brain matter is now splashed up against the walls like some horror scene.

I can’t keep up any longer on all the articles to read. At some point my brain shuts down and I can no longer take anything else in. My psyche screams “Enough”!

What used to be fun for me writing on my blog, now feels like a chore from hell. I try to find something that nobody else has on their blog. But that isn’t always easy to do. Search for more stories, different ones. Vetting the veracity of the stories.

I find myself spending hours upon hours on the Internet when I’ve got personal things to take care of and chores to do that I’ve let go because by the time I’m finished reading and writing for hours, I am simply drained of energy. My body feels sluggish and I drag myself around trying to complete some chores, half done until I return again to finish them up. It’s erratic.

This is an important time in our history. This election means everything to do with what path are we going to take. Are we going to save our country and ourselves or are we going to turn down the black brick road to hell with Hillary Clinton. Everyone, including myself is consumed with it. So much is at stake.

I’m in a sleep deprivation mode now. I sleep in shifts of all kinds of different hours. I can’t seem to make up my sleep deprivation. My sleeping habits are about as nuts as anybody I’ve ever known. I know it’s due to the upcoming election. I need to put this in God’s Hands because what control do I or anyone else really have. We can vote. Some one else who is illegal, dead people and foreigners vote cancelling our votes out.

What will become of us if Hillary wins? What is the next step and is it inevitable?

“The time is near at hand which must determine whether Americans are to be free men or slaves.”
George Washington.

What Trump Wants To Accomplish

The following is a partial list of what Trump wants to accomplish as listed by one of my Twitter followers, Mike Daskaluk: His site one Twitter is https://twitter.com/mplay0000

Mike's list of Trump's plans****************************************************************

I agree with Mike. Many label Trump as a non-conservative, but I agree with the issues Trump put forward and what he wants to do for our country. Trump is more of a Nationalist actually and if there is anything hated more by liberals and other Republicans is someone who is not a globalist but one who thinks of our country first and foremost.


My thanks to Mike for giving me permission to use his list.



Obama pushes to extend gun background checks through Social Security.


not-a-very-inviting-work-environment-the-office-has-signs-everywhereSocial Security Building

The Obama administration is pushing to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs. A move that could affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by others. 1.5 million SS beneficiaries have their finances handled by others for a variety of reasons.

The push is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws regulating who gets reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) which is supposed to prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the country illegally and others.

ATT00253Should these be banned instead?

The VA is already required to report names under a category in gun control regulations known as “adjudicated as a mental defective.” This terminology derives from decades-old laws. Its only criterion is whether somebody has been appointed a fiduciary.

A potentially large group within Social Security are people who, in the language of federal gun laws, are unable to manage their own affairs due to “marked subnormal intelligence, or mental illness, incompetency, condition, or disease.”

There is no simple way to identify that group, but a strategy used by the VA since the creation of the background check system is reporting anyone who has been declared incompetent to manage pension or disability payments and assigned a fiduciary. If Social Security uses the same standard as the VA, millions of its beneficiaries would be affected. About 4.2 million adults receive monthly benefits that are managed by “representative payees.”

Mental health experts and advocates for the disabled say that expanding the list of prohibited gun owners based on financial competence is wrongheaded. This strategy undoubtedly would include numerous people who may just have a bad memory or difficulty balancing a checkbook.

The Social Security Administration has been drafting its policy outside of public view. Social Security would generally report names under the same “mental defective” category.

“Someone can be incapable of managing their funds but not be dangerous, violent or unsafe,” said Dr. Marc Rosen, a Yale psychiatrist who has studied how veterans with mental health problems manage their money. “They are very different determinations.”

Obama vowed to make gun control a central issue of his second term, but the effort fell flat. Congress ultimately rejected his proposals for new gun control legislation. That is not going to stop Obama and his commie buddies from pushing more and stricter gun control laws.

Obama will use executive fiat without blinking an eye, if he can’t get congress to go along. Our veterans are already being unjustly scrutinized of their right to own guns, because of this extraordinarily broad brush. This is just another way to further Obama’s Alinsky policy(s) along with the UN.

Obama, the UN and the Alinsky sheep want to abolish our second amendment right of gun ownership. This is just another step toward their ultimate goal disguised as making citizens safer. Absurd…



Breaking News on Bammy Scammy’s Circus

Blarney Carney announced to the committee that he had breaking news and they found the culprits who hired the lion act that killed and maimed so many people. In fact, as the facts became clearer more people were harmed than we thought.

Before the committee Blarney explains:

There were 4 rogue guys from Cincinnati, who hired these lion tamers and really had no idea what they were doing.  These guys operated within the Individual Revue Specialists (IRS) under their boss Serendipity Ingram.

Committee:  Do you have names Mr. Carney, since nobody knows anything?

Blarney:  Yes I do have their names, all four of them.  There was a guy named Jock Chew, Val Schmearitz, Dan Fifer, and Bobby Neighbors.  They were in charge of hiring the lion acts. Now Val Schmearitz is a man but dresses like a woman. I think she is a transvestite. But our organization welcomes everyone into the fold.  We are a Big Tent company.

Blarney goes on:  These 4 men were upset that Bammy Scammy was taking his circus to Kentucky.  Everything went well enough while the circus performed in Massachusetts, New York, and Maryland.  But, these guys did not want to go into Kentucky.

Committee: Why was Kentucky a state they didn’t want to take the circus?

Blarney:  As I was trying to tell you, these 4 rogue guys didn’t want to take the circus and their acts to a bigoted, racist, Bible thumping, redneck, gun-toting hillbilly state. They did NOT like those kinds of people. You couldn’t trust them at all. What if they got upset over practically nude women riding bareback on horses? 

Committee:  Well, we think that opinion about Kentucky is a bit overblown.

Blarney:  Uh, well, you might say that, but then again I don’t really know why they felt that way. I have no information on that.

Anyway, these guys cooked up a way to never have to enter that state again. So they fired their usual lion tamers and hired these completely inept ones who could not handle lions. They thought they would just cause a bit of mischief on those redne, uh, I mean the good people in Kentucky.

Committee: What do you mean, “a little bit of mischief”???  Many people were killed and maimed by these lions.  You can hardly call that mischief but manslaughter in the least.

Blarney:  Uh, well that’s just the way they looked at it. Like I said they don’t like rednecks, Bible thumping, gun-toting mountain people who are as dumb as rocks.

Committee:  You already said that Blarney. Did no one object to these racist, bigoted views of these 4 men?

Blarney:  No, nobody knew anything about their biases.  Besides these guys were not racist about blacks. They told nobody what they planned to do and of course besides me as representative, Bammy Scammy knew NOTHING about these men. The other advisers or agents knew NOTHING.

Committee:  What about their boss, Serendipity Ingram?  Did she know about these men? After all they worked for her and she must have had some idea about these guys and what kinds of things they liked or disliked.

Blarney: No Serendipity knew NOTHING at all about these 4 men.

Committee:  What has been done to these 4 men after all the damage they caused to God-fearing people in Kentucky?  Have they been arrested for murder or manslaughter? Blarney, this was NOT a joke, but a premeditated act to harm people.

Blarney:  Oh, I wouldn’t go so far as to say they committed murder in all due respect to you on the committee. They just were having a bit of fun. No one was supposed to actually get hurt.

Committee:  Well damn it Blarney people were killed and maimed!  You can’t stand here and tell us that this was a big to do about NOTHING!!!  That is not an answer.  Now we want to know what Bammy Scammy did about this.  We assume that he KNOWS something now?

Blarney:  Yes, of course Bammy Scammy knows now. He said he’d get to the bottom of this when he sent you a note on the Vegas napkin.  Oh, uh, I forgot, he gave me this note to give to you.

The note said: “I will do everything in my power to hold whoever did this responsible and bring them to justice.” This note was written on a memo card from Marthas Vineyard.

Committee:  Why is it that Bammy Scammy does not come before this committee and tell us himself instead of these notes?  We want to hear from him exactly what he plans to do with these 4 men.

Blarney:  Well, uh, he put them on suspension until further notice.

Committee:  Suspension!! Further notice?? We want these 4 men to testify before this committee and tell their story about what actually happened. We are going to subpoena these men and get to the bottom of this ourselves. We have a hard time believing that Serendipity didn’t know a thing about these men.  They sound deranged and mentally unstable. Why are these kinds of men working for your organization?  Didn’t anyone know about them?

Blarney:  I don’t think it will do any good to subpoena these men because they are being detained in an undisclosed location due to the hillbil, uh I mean the people in Kentucky could be very dangerous. You know they carry guns there don’t you?  And these 4 men were not bigoted about blacks as I told you. Serendipity would notice that!

Committee:  What the hell does that have to do with anything?  Are you trying to tell me the Kentucky people would arm themselves like vigilantes and go after these 4 men?

Blarney:  Uh, you never know what those people will do. Some of them are downright crazy redne, I mean, hillbi, uh, they can get real mean.

Committee:  Blarney it is beginning to sound like you feel the same way as these other 4 men.  Don’t think we haven’t noticed your slip ups.

Blarney:  I know NOTHING about why these men felt that way. I can assure you that I do not feel that way no matter how you take it.

Committee:  All right, we want you back here to report on what kind of charges are brought against these 4 men and when.  We want the details on Bammy Scammy’s decisions.  We want Bammy Scammy to testify too. We want to know what he knew.

Blarney:  I can assure you that Mr. Scammy knew NOTHING.

Later, the committee relieved that the matter was now out of their hands, decided to engage in an orgy and sped over to their favorite house of ill repute. They celebrated until they could no longer walk or perform their manly acts.  Some made cracks about the red necks in Kentucky and how stupid they were. One made a crack about the Bible thumping hillbillies and their God and guns mentality. Another one said, who cares about those dumb rocks in Kentucky? They laughed so hard one of them fell to the floor after so much alcohol. He quickly regained his composure  snorting up tons of cocaine while the rest of the committee smoked crack.  At least their job was done on the lion tamer incident and how sweet it was.



King Obama’s Circus

Let’s all take a walk into an imaginary story about a circus run by a man named Bammy Scammy.  His press agent is Blarney Carney.  Bammy has many agents and advisers to get talent and acts for his circus.

All is ready and the circus begins.  In one ring we have the flying trapeze act, in another ring we have the lion tamers.  In a 3rd ring, there are beautiful women who ride big white horses bareback.  There is a large tent with the tight rope walkers, and in another one there are elephants who the trainers led around showing the huge beasts off to the crowds. 

Bammy Scammy is very proud of his circus because while one thing is happening in one tent there are others going on in other tents.  Lots of stuff to keep the people busy and distracted.  Not to mention all that popcorn and beer they were selling to the unwashed masses.

Then one day a disaster strikes.  One of the women, Barbie Doll, riding a big white horse falls off and is trampled to death by the horse.

Another one strikes at the elephant tent. One of the trainers loses control of the elephant and it being so frightened knocks down the barriers in the tent and stomps down at least a dozen customers before the elephant was under control.

In the flying trapeze tent one of the guys flying through the air misses the other guy’s hand and he zooms down to his death while the remaining trapeze artist flies up to the roof of the tent and the whole tent falls down on at least 100 people who are all trying to get out.

In the lions tent, the trainers  can’t hold their lions in command and the lions go on a rampage attacking the watchers.  Three of the people are mauled to death. Others suffer limbs and arms being torn off their bodies.

A fire breaks out in the tight rope tent.  The men on the tightrope fall to their deaths while people are so desperate to get out, they shove and stomp over others to exit the tent.  Many people die in the fire.  The tight rope workers are no longer identifiable as they are burnt beyond recognition.

The townspeople form a committee to investigate Bammy Scammy’s circus and how it is run and how things could go so bad that people were killed and injured. And they want their money back.  For those who were killed or injured the people want them to be given restitution.

Blarney Carney tells the committee that he knew NOTHING about the disasters and no one running the circus had any idea that people were trampled to death, that a fire broke out, that the lions mauled people and certainly nothing about the elephant stomping, and a woman on horseback was killed.  He assures the committee that no one in the King’s circus had any idea these things happened. And surely Bammy Scammy knew NOTHING.

The committee probes further, bringing in advisers, agents, people who saw the disasters before their own eyes.

The committee wants to know why the horse trampled Barbie Doll to death and left to die and no one came to her rescue when the horse trampled her. Why weren’t ambulances brought in? Why weren’t fire trucks called?

The townspeople shriek with outrage and the committee decides they had “better speed things up”.

More of Sammy Scammy’s advisers testify but they didn’t know any of this was happening in their circus and no one they knew was responsible.  Some advisers told the committee they don’t know why no one did anything. 

But, they could maybe come up with a name of someone who actually knew someone who had the facts, but oh, by the way, we don’t have names of anyone.  We can’t recall who hired the acts.  We don’t know anyone’s name and we most certainly have no idea who left Barbie Doll to be stomped to death by her horse.  In fact they never heard of Barbie.

One attendee at the circus testifies that Barbie had no bridle or any way to hold onto the horse so she simply fell as the horse circled around the tent. And there was not the proper  equipment to keep the lions in line.

Drugs  Shulman and Cheats Miller, two of Sammy’s advisers testified they knew NOTHING at all and didn’t know why an ambulance was not called for Barbie in case she could be saved from her severe injuries.  Bammy Scammy of course knew NOTHING about any of these disasters even though he was the one to run the circus.  But, “he is outraged and will bring the people responsible to justice”

Certainly not one agent or adviser had any answers because they all knew NOTHING.   The agents didn’t even know the names of the people who ran the acts.  They were surely all very talented and would do nothing to hurt anyone, but everyone knew NOTHING.

The towns committee decides to bring in the chief investigator before the committee, Ferret Smolder, who testifies that as a law enforcement person, he has no knowledge, but he will get those people who did those very bad deeds.  However, he knows NOTHING and he has no names of anyone. 

He states that since he was merely a top cop, he couldn’t be expected to do anything about this.  In fact according to him it was all the fault of the American people for going to the circus in the first place.  He states, “if it weren’t for them nothing would ever have happened”. 

But, Ferret Smolder would check out every person who attended the circus to see if they owned a gun. After all guns are dangerous and probably caused all this mess.  And he was sure that a gun caused the fire when it was fired.  Or perhaps according to Ferret Smolder, there was a loose maniac running around with an AK.  Surely that would cause a terrible fire.

Funny thing though none of the attendees at the circus ever saw a gun fired anywhere and certainly not by anyone in the crowd. And they sure didn’t see any loose maniac running around inside those tents.

The committee asked, “why were there no firetrucks at the fire’? Ferret Smolder stated that there was a sequester on Bammy Scammy’s funding by “certain people with the wrong views”  so there was no money to call in the fire department.  Ask “those people” why there was no funding for safety at the circus. There were no ambulances either since Bammy’s funds were cut off.

Bammy Scammy would not come in to testify. After all he was the owner of the circus and how could he be expected to know anything about what was going on.  He sent a message that he “was outraged” and he would make sure the proper people were held responsible  “IF”  it actually happened. And he knew NOTHING about what had happened.  The message was written on the back of a Nevada hotel napkin.

The committee argued, raged, bloviated, pointed their fingers and accused the advisers and others agents who testified they would bring someone to justice for the carnage. Get us names, get us people who knew what happened they demanded in feigned outrage.

But, the people shouted angrily, exactly what are you going to do since you have no names, all the advisers and agents and Bammy Scammy know NOTHING?

Sine the committee lied to the people about getting to the “bottom” of this scandalous behavior, that night the committee met in a secret room with smoked filled air, some smoking cigars, cigarettes, snorting cocaine, and one member fondled his young aide under the table at which they sat while they argued among themselves.  They all drank large amounts of alcohol to quell their nerves.

They broke out in a frenzy of exchanges asking one another, just what can we do?  We know NOTHING. And just how do we find out why everyone knew NOTHING. How do we find out who started this Gawd awful circus?

The committee decided since they had no names and nobody knew anything  just how could they bring anyone to justice or prosecution for negligence at the least.

They decided to put the committee on hold indefinitely because as far as they were concerned they could do NOTHING since everybody knew NOTHING.

Toy Gun Permits

Now here is a real crazy one for all of you.

In the town of York, SC, kids have to have permits to own a squirt gun as follows:

Sec. 28-281. – Discharging firearms, air rifles and toy guns.

“The discharging of firearms within the city, the discharging or shooting of air rifles in the city and the discharging or shooting of toy guns on any of the streets of the city is prohibited; provided, however, that the city chief of police [sic] is authorized to issue temporary permits permitting the discharge of firearms and air rifles within the city, if in the opinion of the chief of police [sic], such permission is necessary to protect property within the city from animals or fowl. The permit must state the purpose for discharging firearms, or air rifles, briefly describe the property to be protected, set forth the date such discharging is permitted and shall be issued only to a person 21 years of age or older who has a valid hunting license. [my bolding and italics]“

Now what the heck is the purpose of this ridiculous ordinance?  I recall playing with squirt guns as a kid, especially in the summer, all the time.  It was just kid fun when it was hot outside. Good exercise to as we would all run around to avoid being squirted and fun when we did get squirted as it felt good.

The Chief of Police needs to issue a permit. “Toy guns” is not defined within the ordinance the “toy guns” statement could cover everything from paint ball guns and cap guns to water pistols. Water pistols are “discharged” or “shot” to make the water come out: so a water pistol is included.

In the City of York, a seven-year-old has to have a permit from the Chief of Police in order to go outside and have a squirt gun fight with his six-year-old brother if they leave the confines of their own yard. That’s IF the Chief of Police considers a squirt gun fight necessary for the protection of property within the city from animals or fowl.

This looks like insanity but it is a form of indoctrination actually.   I just bought my grand children squirt guns a few years ago to play with around their pool.  Never once did I think I was giving them something “dangerous” or that I would scare them because it “looked” like a gun.  Neither did I think I would be teaching my grand children to shoot guns at people, real ones, as they know better than that.

Limiting this type of freedom for children is another type of tyranny over our children.  Thankfully, where I gave my grand kids their squirt guns there is no ordinance such as this.

It is deeply concerning when a teacher sees a gun from a pop tart, or a pencil, or a kid using his hand like a gun, or takes the letter L out of the alphabet because it “looks like a gun”,  and children are then suspended from school over normal child activity and imagination.  I’m sure none of these kids were intending to shoot someone. Basically these children have been age 7 years old and younger.

Besides that in the 2nd Amendment the framers did not mention squirt guns, pencils or kids’ fingers as weapons.  It would not have even crossed their minds to put something this stupid into the 2nd Amendment.

This suspending of kids for normal, usual activity by children has gone over board and is merely done, in my opinion, to make kids fearful about guns of any sort. It also removes the child’s imagination and normal development. Children of this age are normally very imaginative and creative.  To me this type of thing stifles a child’s development.



Senate Gun Control Update Immediate Action Needed

logo Gun Owners of America

Senators may resurrect defeated gun control
after making cosmetic changes

“A source close to the Senate negotiations [says] that two senators who voted against the background check bill would vote for it after minor, superficial changes.” — Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC, May 6, 2013

ACTION: Senators who voted pro-gun last month are under intense pressure by Senate Democrats and Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s hit ads to switch their votes. We need to keep applying the heat and let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE FROM WASHINGTON, DC. It’s not over yet. We can’t give up.

We won a dramatic victory last month. But the Left has not raised the white flag yet, and they are using out-of-state rabble rousers to harass Senators who voted against the Toomey-Schumer-Manchin national gun registry just a couple of weeks ago.

It is a national gun registry because the Obama administration is copying the names of gun purchasers from 4473’s when it conducts its annual inspections of gun shops. If everyone has to have a 4473 when they buy a gun — even through most private sales — then everyone will be in the Obama administration’s database.

Few things are more hypocritical than the spectacle of gun-grabbers whining that they don’t support national gun registries just as they get off Air Force One on a trip from Hartford, Connecticut where they cheered the enactment of a state gun registry.

THE BULLYING IS CONTINUING. Senate Democrats are bullying the Senators who voted correctly on Toomey-Manchin-Schumer. Those who are under the most pressure to switch their votes are:

Mark Begich (202) 224-3004
Lisa Murkowski (202) 224-6665

Jeff Flake (202) 224-4521

Saxby Chambliss (202) 224-3521
Johnny Isakson (202) 224-3643

Max Baucus (202) 224-2651

North Dakota
Heidi Heitkamp (202) 224-2043

New Hampshire
Kelly Ayotte (202) 224-3324

Dean Heller (202) 224-6244

Rob Portman (202) 224-3353

Lamar Alexander (202) 224-4944
Bob Corker (202) 224-3344

If your Senator is a Republican, or is mentioned in the list above, it is imperative that you contact them again!

Right now, there are several Public Policy Polling surveys that claim Senators who voted pro-gun have lost public support. It’s hogwash!

Gun owners can click here to read GOA’s analysis of why these PPP polls are fiction. These polls are nothing more than a ploy to sway weak-knee Senators into reversing their votes.

Some Senators are even beginning to wonder if they are going to be punished at the polls for voting pro-gun. And that’s why we need you right now to stay active and engaged in this fight.

CONTACT INFO: Contact your Senators, if possible, at 202-224-3121. Jam their phone lines. If it is not possible for you to call, then use the prewritten letter we have provided to e-mail them.

Tell them to vote against the expansion of background checks as they will allow for the registration of gun owners.And let them know that gun owners are ready to help in any Senate campaign, no matter which state, to defeat ANY SENATOR who votes for gun control.

Kansas Gives Strong Message to Holder


A new law in Kansas that prevents government agents from enforcing federal gun laws in the state is unconstitutional, Attorney General Eric H. Holder said.

“In purporting to override federal law and to criminalize the official acts of federal officers, [the law] directly conflicts with federal law and is therefore unconstitutional,” Mr. Holder wrote to Gov. Sam Brownback in a letter dated April 26. “Federal officers who are responsible for enforcing federal laws and regulations in order to maintain public safety cannot be forced to choose between the risk of a criminal prosecution by a state and the continued performance of their federal duties.”

The measure, known as the Second Amendment Protection Act, prevents any law enforcement official from enforcing any federal regulation or law governing any firearm, accessory, or ammunition “manufactured commercially or privately and owned in Kansas, provided it remains within the borders of Kansas.”

It also exempts any firearm of the same description from federal regulation and allows state officials to enjoin agents from enforcing federal law.”

Mr. Brownback replied to Mr. Holder on Thursday.

“The right to keep and bear arms is a right that Kansans hold dear,” Mr. Brownback wrote in a letter dated May 2. “It is a right enshrined not only in the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, but also protected by the Kansas Bill of Rights.

Obama Puts Down America in Mexico

Excerpts from Obama’s speech in Mexico taken from Rush Limbaugh’s site.


OBAMA:  Our attitudes sometimes are trapped in old stereotypes. Some Americans only see the Mexico that is depicted in sensational headlines of violence and border crossings — and let’s admit it. Some Mexicans think that America disrespects Mexico, or thinks that America is trying to impose itself on Mexican sovereignty or just wants to wall ourselves off. And in both countries, such distortions create misunderstandings that make it harder for us to move forward together. So I’ve come to Mexico because I think it’s time for us to put the old mind-sets aside. It’s time to recognize new realities, including the impressive progress of today’s Mexico.

RUSH: Right. You note the God echo is back, the God reverb. Now, ladies and gentlemen, I think this is an outrage. We had the president of the United States apologizing to Mexican college students for the way illegal immigrants in this country are disrespected. We take in millions and millions of them here, in violation of law. We feed and clothe and educate them and provide them health care.

The president of the United States is in Mexico apologizing for the attitudes of some Americans, that many Americans convey the old stereotype of Mexicans as illegal border crossers. He then apologized to these college students for America trying to impose itself on Mexican sovereignty. What? Would somebody explain that to me? I do not understand how we are trying to impose ourselves on Mexico.

OBAMA:   We understand that much of the root cause of violence that’s been happening here in Mexico, from which so many Mexicans have suffered, is the demand for illegal drugs in the United States. We also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States. Many of you know that in America our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will. But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people that can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do. (applause)

RUSH: Any of you in this country that live in Mexico or have lived, I want to tell you about a program called Fast and Furious that you might not have heard of. Fast and Furious was a program created by President Obama and his attorney general, Eric Holder. And here’s what Fast and Furious was. Guns that were legally in gun shops in Arizona were purchased by agents of the administration and then taken to Mexico. Those guns, AK-47s and other very powerful weapons like them, were then given to the leaders of drug cartels. That is how American guns got into the hands of Mexican criminals. The president of the United States had a plan to make it happen.

OBAMA:  We’re so grateful to Mexican-Americans in every segment of our society who are teaching our children and running our companies and serving with honor in our military and making breakthroughs in science and standing up for social justice. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said to Cesar Chavez once, “We are brothers in the fight for equality,” and, in fact, without the strong support of Latinos including so many Mexican-Americans I would not be standing here today as president of the United States. That’s the truth.

MEXICANS: (cheers and applause)

OBAMA: The immigration system we have in the United States right now doesn’t reflect our values. It separates families when we should be reuniting them. It’s left millions of people to live in the shadows. It deprives us of the talents of so many young people, even though we know that immigrants have always been the engine of our economy, starting some of our greatest companies and pioneering new industries. That’s one of the reasons I acted to lift the shadow of deportation from what we call the dreamers, young people brought to the United States as children. And that’s why I’m working with our Congress to pass common-sense immigration reform this year. (applause) I’m convinced we can get it done.


“Now, I know I’ve been president of it for four and a half years, but don’t hold it against me. I’m better than America and I’m bigger than America and I’m trying to drag America in the twenty-first century so they’re just as progressive as you are. I realize that you’re embarrassed by me country. I’m embarrassed by my country, but I want you to know that I’m working as hard as I can so that you can be as proud of America as you are of Mexico. I realize you’re angry. I realize you’re embarrassed. I realize you know that we are imposing our sovereignty on you by claiming California and Arizona, New Mexico as our own.

“I agree with you that that’s not right. And I agree with you that our immigration policy stinks, that you ought to be able to come to our country any time you want and leave any time you want and get on any welfare plan or any job or whatever that you want,

just because you want it. I know my country ass backwards because it won’t let you do that, but I’m trying to fix it. I’ve been president for four and a half years, and because I’m so ineffective I haven’t been able to, but I’m working very hard. I’ve got these people called Republicans standing in my way, and I got this thing called talk radio standing in my way, and I got the bitter clingers in my country, a bunch of hayseeds. But I’m working on it, and I want you to be proud of me, because, like you, I’m not proud of my country.”

That’s what he told ’em. That’s exactly what he said.
