Has Ohio Been A Constitutional Carry State All Along?

As I was looking into my travels this Memorial Day weekend I took a minute to have a refresher course on what the gun laws are in the states that I will be travelling to.  I am planning on heading to Cincinnati Ohio to root on my Alma Mater’s, the University of Pittsburgh’s, Ultimate Frisbee Team En Sabah Nur. Yes…your champion of gun rights and all things 2nd Amendment himself was a big time Ultimate Frisbee player.  With ESN, a team on which I was a founding member, I was a 4-time National Qualifier after an injury left him unable to continue playing football at Pitt…but I digress :o) Anyways, while I know Open Carry is legal in the Buckeye state (fortunate for me since Ohio and Pennsylvania do not have CCW reciprocity) I wanted to delve into the motor vehicle aspect of firearm transportation.  From what I heard...

Is this treason?

At what point in the course of human events when it becomes necessary to dissolve the political bands and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, do we leave the notion of treason behind and embrace the liberty of revolution? Last week a man, Cliven Bundy made a stand.  He would not let the federal government illegally seize his property in a bid to have his livelihood and thereby his land stripped from him. In 1776 Thomas Jefferson wrote a little something that the preamble of this article artfully interspersed within itself, it was called the Declaration of Independence.  Now, most of us know WHAT this is…but do you know what is SAYS?  Not the catch phrases and buzzwords like “all men created equal” and “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness”...

Federal Shocktroopers Nearly Murder Family Who Dared Film Them As They Stole Their Cattle

Here is another example of the need for the 2nd Amendment. The case of Cliven Bundy and his stand against government oppression for the past 20 years may result in a trigger happy fed murdering him in cold blood. The gist of it comes down to the fact that in 1993, the government levied a tax on the land that Bundy’s family has used since the 1880’s in a roundabout attempt to drive him bankrupt and ensure that he could not pass his ranch on to his son. Now they are moving in armed troops to steal Bundy’s cattle. Just like bogus Eminent Domain cases that result in campaign kickbacks and immoral quid quo pro practices, the federal government is trying to disguise their crime by saying this action is to “protect” the desert tortoise. But the local politicians in Nevada aren’t buying it.  Clark County Commissioner Tom Collins...

Another liberal activist judge inadvertently strengthens gun rights in America

A federal judge, US District Judge John Heyburn II, has ruled that the state of Kentucky MUST recognize same-sex marriages that were performed in other states. The state of Kentucky had passed a constitutional amendment outlawing same-sex marriages in the state and part of that amendment was to not recognize such marriages from other states. Judge Heyburn ruled that the exclusion of marriages from other states was unconstitutional based off of the following rationale, that Kentucky’s laws treat gay and lesbians differently in a “way that demeans them.” Heyburn DIDN’T say that the state of Kentucky had to perform same-sex marriages but that they did have to recognize the marriage licenses from other states. Now, THIS is where things get interesting. If the courts rule that a license issued in one state MUST be recognized by another then by extension my Pennsylvania License to Carry a Firearm MUST be acknowledged...

The heartland moves to expand gun rights

The state houses of Missouri and Kansas have both moved legislation along that will expand the rights of its citizens. In the Missouri senate, legislation was passed on Tuesday that would nullify federal gun laws that are incongruent with Missourian’s 2nd Amendment rights.  Any agent of the federal government who attempt to infringe upon the rights of a Missourian would face jail time of up to a year as well as a $1000 fine. Such measures are seemingly more and more appropriate as Obama is talking more and more about acting outside the scope of his power and enacting liberty infringing executive orders to try and pass his draconian ideas of gun control on an unwilling people. Missouri Sen. Brian Nieves said of the legislation: “This is primarily purposed to protect liberties of Missourians.” If the federal government is going to ignore the bill of rights, it must fall...

Drug Freedom Clearing The Road For Gun Freedom?

It’s funny how things work out. A lot of puns and humor were tossed at the two Super Bowl teams this year as both come from states that have legalized marijuana. As a gun rights advocate I am rather curious as to how the whole drug thing will shake out because the federal government is pretty clear that drugs that they deem illegal cannot be allowed by states.  The states of Washington and Colorado disagree. If the Federal Government blinks it will be the blink heard round the world because it will set a precedent in where a state can willfully and overtly ignore Federal Laws in order to conduct state business as an autonomous sovereignty. As a Libertarian I love this.  Please do not take that as me condoning or endorsing the use of heretofore illicit drugs, but if a state wants to pass a law saying that...

Holder’s Hypocrisy Dance on Gay Marriage and Guns

Utah’s voters passed a resolution to not recognize gay marriages within their state.  Much like when California also overwhelmingly passed a similar resolution those on the losing side of the issue sued to have the will of the people overturned. Unlike California, the governor of Utah is not complicit the undermining of his own constituency’s voice and decided to fight the suit. Initially an activist judge, Roberty Shelby, ruled that gay marriages must be performed in Utah.  Roughly 1300 such marriages were allowed to go forward until the Supreme Court finally stepped in to place a stay on the ruling until the appeal of Utah was heard. This is where corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Administration decide to get involved. Eric Holder has released a statement saying that the Federal Government will recognize these marriages even if their state does not. Here is the video, take...

The Sunshine State moves to fortify the 2nd Amendment against Federal infringements

There was some worry that Florida, after the railroading and demonization of  Peruvian-American Jorge Zimmerman when he defended himself against alleged homophobe and gay basher Trayvon Martin, would crack down on the right to keep and bear arms. Fortunately, there were enough clear eyed people in the sunshine state who saw through the media’s fog of bias and racial pandering.  Not only did they leave “Stand Your Ground” alone, despite the media’s continued assault that SYG had anything to do with Zimmerman being found not guilty, the legislators and people of Florida are pushing for more freedom from tyranny in the form of the “Florida Second Amendment Preservation Act.” For the most part, this Act follows in the footsteps of other Firearm Protection Acts in that it reasserts State Sovereignty in the protection of rights granted to the people by their Creator and Natural Law. To wit:   THE...
