Let’s Protect both the First and Second Amendments Equally

Being a member of the NRA these days may be one the most heinous things an American can do, according to snowflake leftists.

The push from the radical left has reached a fever-pitch against the Second Amendment rights organization. So much so that even road-side billboards have begun to crop up slamming the NRA.

The first to be legally erected was in Pensacola, Fla. The rather large billboard reads: “The NRA is a terrorist organization.” It was paid for by a former Clinton hack, Claude Taylor, who now heads up the “Mad Dog,” anti-Trump Political Action Committee (PAC). Taylor was a Bill Clinton White House staffer.

I wonder where he gets his funding? I don’t know, but if I were a betting man, I’d wager the house on George Soros. It seems like he funds most of the radical leftist hate groups.

When not waging war against the Second Amendment, Taylor’s PAC concentrates on trying to impeach president Trump. So he’s a multi-tasker. read more

Video Podcast – Four Boxes of Liberty – School Shooting and Arming Teachers

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

I discuss the four boxes of liberty: Soap Box, Ballot Box, Jury Box and Ammo (Cartridge) Box, and why they are just as important as when first uttered by Frederick Douglass and Georgia Congressman Larry McDonald.

The latest legislative proposals after the aftermath of the Florida school shooting and why bad law and ineffective law is actually worse than no law at all.

Arming select teachers and school staff is still the best solution to deter school shootings, and that we never hear of all the schools that have been and are currently arming teachers. read more


The Second Amendment Sanctuary City: a city where the mayor, council members and local law enforcement abide by the Constitution and follow the laws of the state and the nation. What a novelty.

At least they follow most of the laws. See, it’s also a city where the Second Amendment is interpreted as it was written and intended. Any and all weapons of personal self-defense are allowed in this city and the surrounding suburbs.

WND Exclusive – The left’s despicable use of emotion post-Vegas

In the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, it took only a matter of hours before the left sought to divide us, howling for gun control. But as we’ve seen many times before, they don’t care how it sounds or looks. They don’t care how caustic their rhetoric is. It’s all and only about advancing the agenda.

The overarching agenda of the progressive left, since its rise to prominence in the early 20th century, was/is to chip away at and eventually supplant the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence with their version of America. And they will seize any opportunity do so, regardless of how tasteless. read more

Podcast – Explaining Gun Control and the Second Amendment

by: the Common Constitutionalist

First, I apologize, but I had almost immediate technical difficulties, so the podcast, after the opening, is in audio only. Such is life.

In this podcast, I give conservatives and gun rights advocates a little additional ammunition (pardon the pun) to combat the left’s soundbite arguments for confiscating our guns (which is truly what they desire), as well as an explanation of both the amendment process of the Constitution and the Second Amendment itself.

It’s surprising how many on our side cannot effectively argue these points. I hope this helps. read more

Video Podcast – Republicans Heart ObamaCare – A Second Amendment Victory

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Out and about in the forest, I speak to you regarding an article in the Conservative Review about the turncoat Rep

ublicans and their desire to maintain the status quo and yes – ObamaCare.

Walking the rails like a hobo, I discuss a recent lower court ruling that once again slapped down Washington D.C.’s latest attempt at a gun ban – this time on concealed carry. read more

A Federal Judge Actually Understands the Second Amendment

from The American Thinker:

A federal judge in San Diego has issued a temporary stay against a new California law that bans high-capacity magazines.

U.S. district judge Roger Benitez issued the preliminary injunction against the voter-approved law, writing that the law is likely to be unconstitutional because it prevents citizens from purchasing “whatever common magazine size [they judge] best suits the situation.” read more

Iowa – Caucuses, Corn and Guns Rights

Iowa governor signs sweeping expansion of gun rights

from The Hill:

Iowa governor signs sweeping expansion of gun rights
Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) on Thursday signed one of the most ambitious expansions of gun rights legislation passed in any state in recent years, giving gun owners the ability to defend themselves in public and preventing local governments from implementing their own rules.
The new law, House File 517, comes months after Republicans won back control of the Iowa state Senate, which had blocked earlier proposals when Democrats ran the chamber.
“After 7 years of hard work, House Republicans successfully passed a comprehensive bipartisan bill protecting Second Amendment Rights for Iowans,” the state House Republican caucus wrote in its weekly newsletter, before Branstad signed the bill.

Podcast – Deportation Sob Stories – Scary Firearms are Banned – Take Down that American Flag

Every week, the left will trot out poor illegal aliens who face deportation by that big meanie Trump. Last week was no different. The radical illegal immigrant advocates regale us with sob stories of how unfair the President is. I touch on a few of the latest tearjerkers.

The U.S. Fourth Circuit is making their own unconstitutional law, by stating that scary “exceptionally lethal weapons of war” are not protected by the Second Amendment – as opposed to weapons which are not lethal – I guess.

A Virginia High School tries to force a student to take his American flag off his truck. read more

Rule Number One – Never Rob a Gun Store!

Chalk this one up as a special kind of stupid!  Is this what Darwin meant?

from the Daily Mail:

Scroll Down For Video

An armed robber was killed on camera as he tried to hold up a gun store by its 64-year-old owner.

Surveillance footage at Dixie Gun and Pawn in Mableton, Georgia, showed the moment the would-be criminal and an accomplice stormed into the store dressed in ski masks.

They aimed their guns towards an employee who held his hands up in a plea for mercy before store owner Jimmy Groover opened fire.

The 64-year-old grandfather reached for his own gun and shot one of the robbers dead while the other ran for his life.

The robbers entered the store shortly before 11am on December 26, pointing their weapons at Groover and another member of staff. Above, Groover tends to business behind the counter unaware that the robbers have entered
