Gun Owning Atheists

The 2nd Amendment guarantees an American's RIGHT to own firearms. Much like the 1st Amendment guarantees the concept to keep Church and State separate.

The next threat to OUR GUN RIGHTS inside our Gov't:

The next justice of the Supreme Court could well cast the deciding vote on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. And that justice will almost certainly preside, during the next thirty years, over dozens of cases which could very well chip away at the DC v. Heller decision, telling us which gun laws the court views as "constitutional" and which "unconstitutional."

So it is more than a little interesting that Barack Qbama has reached into his closet of political leftists to bring out Elena Kagan -- a woman whose legal views have been shaped by the most extreme socialist voices in Washington.

Kagan doesn't have a record of judicial opinions. She hasn't been a judge. So the crafty Obama figures that, without a paper trail, we won't know of the ways she is moving American jurisprudence to the left until it's too late.

But Kagan's views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. According to columnist James Oliphant, Kagan was part of "a small group of staffers work[ing] behind the scenes to pursue an aggressive policy agenda" during President Bill Clinton's second term.

Oliphant writes: "According to records at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., [Kagan] drafted an executive order restricting the importation of certain semiautomatic assault rifles. She also helped prepare a question-and-answer document advocating the campaign-reform legislation then proposed by Sens. Russ Feingold and John McCain."

Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the president pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

President Obama has made it very clear that he expects Kagan's "powers of persuasion" to make her and Justice Anthony Kennedy the swing votes to uphold his anti-gun ObamaCare legislation.

Kagan's opinion of the "greatest lawyer" of her lifetime was her former boss -- the consistently left-wing Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Bloomberg News reported on May 13 that while working for Justice Marshall, Kagan urged him to vote against hearing a gun owner's claim that his constitutional rights were violated.

Kagan wrote that she was "not sympathetic" toward the gun rights claim that was made in Sandidge v. United States -- an amazing statement for a woman who is being heralded for supposedly showing a "special solicitude" for the interests of certain groups.

Alas, it seems that gun owners are not a part of those groups for whom she would like to show special concern.

After the Heller case was handed down, Kagan did concede that the Second Amendment was an "individual right." But that makes her no different than the talking heads at the Brady Campaign.

Kagan, like the President who nominated her, is an extreme leftist. According to (May 6, 2009), she is so far to the left she has lamented that socialism has "never attained the status of a major political force" in our country.

And according to (March 20, 2009), she says that foreign law can be used to interpret the U.S. Constitution in "some circumstances." Considering that most of the world does not respect the freedoms that are protected in our Second Amendment, this is a bad sign.

I agree with Realizer that some who claim to be Pro-Gun and favor additional hurdles and mandates to "allow" us to purchase and use firearms are in fact aiding the Anti-Gun movement more than helping those who protect and defend our 2nd Amendment Right.

Don.. why do you encourage the people of this nation to give up ANY of their constitutional rights, I still feel it is a slippery slope to slowly erode what privacy you have. It is obvious you dislike me, and the more we converse the more mutual the feeling becomes..

Slowly and relentlessly your rights are being chipped away (always for good reason) (FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION). Case in point: In 56 I bought a Ford Crown Victoria which had seat belts. There was a sticker on the visor which said "The vehicle is equipped with seat belts the use of these belts is encouraged as they could be benificial in a rollover, however it should never be manditory" Those may not be the exact wording, but close....Fast forward 50 years..(Click it or Ticket) For my own protection I can no longer smoke at the friendly neighborhood bar!

Those who are willing to sacrifice freedom for security will enentually have neither. First a license will be required to own a gun, then a statement of intent to purchase ammo. When you are disarmed it will be a simple matter for the Moral Majority-The National Council of Churches to send you a schedule to keep track of your attendance at the church of Your (maybe their) choice. Think about it!!

I will support a mythical god if (s)he will help me keep the federal government OUT of the gun control business! (including licensing).
Whether or not it is a god given right is beside the point, IT IS a constitutionsl guarantee!!!!!!!!!

"if the 1st Amendment wasn't there it wouldn't MATTER if we had fire arms. ;D"
My bad, mind must have skipped a beat or something.

I agree we need the 2nd Amendment above all else, if the 1st Amendment wasn't there it wouldn't if we had fire arms. ;D

I support the right to bare and keep guns however, I shall have to resort to my trusty Knife or bare fists for now. Need to buy a new gun, only 3 and 2 are with my uncle now. The sweet .357 Special my mom had got wet and now we need a replacement yet our funds are sadly short for the time being...

Generally I think most serious and responsible gun owners concur with the thought that the NRA is a bit 'over the top' when it comes to front-and-center, in-your-face gunner sentiments... and/but that's what they are there for, to make noise and stay in the limelight. Remember, its the squeaky wheel that gets the grease and there's really no dif here. I stay a member of the NRA because a big group gets big attention; however, I do not agree with all their policies and approaches to the politics of RKBA. That's why I feel it important to stay involved at the same time and support no-nonsense, no-compromise groups like Gun Owners of America and locally with Oregon Firearms Federation, plus a few others.

Don't kid yourself about losing your gun rights - its an easy thing that can happen... what good is your gun if you cannot get ammo? Or if you are deemed unsafe by the gov't because you once used sleep aids and therefore should be forcibly disarmed? If its a crime to carry ANY gun ANYWHERE, what good will your gun be should you need it? There are many mechanisms that can be employed to disarm a populace, and that includes simple attrition and 're-education' of youth.

Eternal vigilence is the price of freedom...

Honestly, while I agree with the sentiments about taking 'my guns out of my cold dead hands', the NRA has pretty much always been too tied to religious nutjobs for me to ever too closely feel attached to.
Comment by Sue B on July 16, 2009 at 12:25pm
I'm with Don, personally the NRA has always appeared to me to be no more than a bunch of reiche wing nuts, I have no doubt that there are normal moderate members of that group but with Nugent and the crazy crap he is always spouting and various friends (NRA members) I have who get "absolutely rabid" spouting "They're going to take our guns away!, they're going to take our guns away!" Is like the Fundies having fits anytime they can't be shoving they're beliefs down our throats. I looked into the finances of the NRA a bit this winter and there are some people getting very comfortable off all those dues. but hey thats just been my impression.

Just let them try and take guns away from Americans see where that will get them. (hope I don't make too many enemies here ;)
