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...

Oklahoma Judge Makes Strong Argument to Repeal SAFE Act and Gun Bans

They say politics make the strangest bedfellows. Ironically, a liberal activist judge in Oklahoma has once again furthered the judicial basis to strengthen 2nd Amendment rights of Americans…completely unintentionally. While ruling to gut not only the Constitution of Oklahoma but also to force the Okie state to recognize marriage licenses from other states, U.S. District Judge Terrence Kern forwarded the 2nd Amendment. You see, the voters of Oklahoma voted to amend their state constitution to specify that marriage is between a man and a women.  Apparently, states rights don’t really matter to Judge Kern when he can just imagine that the issue of marriage is somehow in the US Constitution.  It’s not. But let’s pretend that Kern’s ruling that the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment is somehow relevant to gay marriage. I say it like that because marriage can be viewed like tax breaks.  A state may dictate...

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 Hypocrisy Of The 14th Amendment When Not Applied To Gun Rights

Once again an activist judge has disenfranchised the will of voters. This time in Utah, where voters in 2004 overwhelmingly voted to ban gay marriage, a radical judged cited the 14th Amendment as reason to usurp the ballot box to impose his own will upon the people of the Beehive State. Like in California before, the silly notion that VOTING should actually count for anything is a foreign notion to these radical judges. What is worse than their legislating from the bench is the hypocrisy of their reasoning. U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby declared in his ruling that the voter passed initiative declaring that marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman is unconstitutional based off of the 14th Amendment. My issue with using the 14th Amendment by radical judges is that they apply it unfairly, pushing forward their own liberal agenda while in the same...
