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 WeeklyStandard.com (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 Politico.com (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.

FACT ON GUN CONTROL: THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS NOT ABOUT DUCK HUNTING, IT'S ABOUT PROTECTING CITIZENS FROM GOVERNMENT.

DC Crime Museum promotes unhelpful firearm stereotypes

 

Here are some highlights from the article:

 

The National Crime and Punishment Museum on 7th Street N.W. in the District is a popular venue for District tourists and residents.  I went there a few months ago to check it out and was pleased to discover that not only did the museum have many firearm related exhibits... But a more disturbing issue is that the museum's displays consistently omit any acknowledgement of, as the U.S. Supreme Court noted in United States v. Staples (1994), the "long history of lawful gun ownership by citizens in this country."  Nor among the museum's vast collections is there any mention of the continuing common law right of citizen's arrest, the open and concealed carry movements, or even the recent Supreme Court cases holding that the Second Amendment "guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation" that must be respected by both the federal and state governments...

People dont see that the laws only effect people who fallow them. reason being that your taking the guns out of the hands of the people that would be the only ones thinking to stop the kid shooting up the school or breaking into your house.. because sh/she wont care about a gun law.... ide like to say im a proud owner and gun fanatic! and will always exercise my right to own one :) p.s. dont expect to stroll through my house and steal shit.. armed or not i dont shoot to wound lol so you can come back.. or i have to pay for you in jail. :)

Hey, everyone. I endorse the right of every individual to own any size, shape, caliber and mechanism of firearm they could dream of. If you want to keep a minigun, that's no one else's Fabrique Nationale Business.

Great group.  I am glad to know I am not the only one.

I try to tell fellow non-theists that the only thing that will stop the bible bangers from killing us all if they take over country is if they know damn well we are just as well armed as they are.

Gungrip.com or Gunaccessories.com. Gunaccessories.com is probably your best bet.

I'm looking for some replacement grips for my Rossi .357 revolver, but I'm having trouble finding a good site to buy from. Any suggestions?

The only problem with that is the people I know in MS are not atheists, but they do support the separation of church and state.
