It Has Always Been an Individual Right

Chief Justice John Jay_Gilbert Stuart

Today the right of the people to keep and bear arms has been reaffirmed as an individual right as it has always been. The Supreme Court has redeemed itself after a run of poorly thought out decisions of granting rights to non citizen individuals that have no rights guaranteed by our Constitution. The Supreme Court has overturned the Washington D.C. complete ban on firearm ownership. The framers wrote the second amendment to the Constitution as an individual and specific right; A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of free state , the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Freedom loving Americans already knew this but we thank you Justice Scalia for reaffirming the freedoms that are guaranteed by the Constitution by using correct Constitutional principles.

The reason why this became such an issue over the years is because elitists among us are always afraid of people having individual rights to protect themselves thereby bypassing an all powerful and all seeing government run by bureaucrats and those wishing to squash freedom in the name of safety and control.

I'm sure we will hear from the hand wringing elitist liberals about all the murders that happen everyday by people misusing their gun owning rights by breaking already well established laws. It is already a crime to murder someone whether you use a gun, a knife or a bomb. It is already a crime for a convicted felon to own a firearm. One of the biggest problems today is judges not enforcing the laws we already have that cover minimum sentences for people that use guns in the commission of a crime.

Our Governor of the State of Pennsylvania Edward G. Rendell as Mayor of Philadelphia refused to provide the District Attorney's office with the funding to prosecute criminals with State mandated minimum sentences for crimes committed with a firearms. The National Rifle Association went to the Federal government to get funding for a federal gun crime court while Rendell was Mayor but Rendell fought it tooth and nail but lost out to common sense. Rendell released violent and dangerous criminals back onto the streets as an answer to prison overcrowding instead of investing in prisons and more police. Rendell's solution was to sue gun manufactures until Congress passed legislation preventing such silliness. Rendell as Governor still refuses to provide funding to hire more State police and adamantly opposes hiring more Police for the City of Philadelphia.

Rendell still has the silly notion that limiting access to firearms for the citizens of the state is a better idea than using common sense solutions of putting pressure on judges to do their job of putting criminals in jail, breaking up the welfare state, and providing an atmosphere for job growth by lowering taxes and loosing up on ridiculous regulation and bureaucratic red tape. This is the same type of thinking or lack thereof we will get if Barack Obama is elected President except on a national scale.

Once again the liberal elitists such as Barack Obama and the democrat party will try to divert attention away from the real solutions to violent crime by coddling violent criminals that prey upon tax paying citizens. They will blame the availability of firearms instead tackling the real issues of moral decay, welfare state mentality, single parent children and the respect for life. None of which has anything to do with my rights or your rights to own a firearm to protect ourselves from these criminals that the liberals have created. All this is already clear to the right thinking individuals of this great nation like Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, Chief Justice John Roberts, Anthony Kennedy and Samuel Alito. They still see the same America the framers and the rest of us have always known was there.

In Their Own Words

The words coming from the mouths of democrats is quite different today than they were before we defeated Saddam Hussein. The democrats are the hypocrites and the losers. Their phony report is meaningless and worthless. Barack Obama did not vote to authorize the war because he was a Illinois State Senator at the time and did not see the full intelligence reports that Biden, Reid, Kerry and Rockefeller were privy to so how could he possibly know whether attacking Iraq was the right thing to do or not. The democrats have politicized the war and they are an impediment to finishing the job they authorized the President to start.

Now the democrats speak as a matter-of-factly that Bush is a no good, lying, war monger because many have been killed in the name of freedom and security. The democrats don't represent that line of thinking though, they are for appeasement, weakness and talking when the time of talking is long past. I for one am proud of our troops and the President that sent them there to Iraq and Afghanistan because it was the right thing to do. No matter how much second guessing comes from the leftest democrats with their self aggrandizing reports or the hand wringing from their minions of the leftwing press, going to Iraq was the right thing to do.

Smooth Sailin for Obama

Gulph Stream_Winslow Homer

Now that the Clinton's have been defeated it's time for Barack Obama to explain to the people just what kind of changes he means to make if elected. The liberal press will be in the tank for Barack Obama as they were during the democrat primary but now he will have to explain himself to intelligent people. Then there will be some smooth sailin eh?


THANK Fate for foes! I hold mine dear
As valued friends. He cannot know
The zest of life who runneth here
His earthly race without a foe.
I saw a prize, "Run," cried my friend;
"'T is thine to claim without a doubt."
But ere I half-way reached the end,
I felt my strength was giving out.
My foe looked on the while I ran;
A scornful triumph lit his eyes.
With that perverseness born in man
I nerved myself, and won the prize.
All blinded by the crimson glow
Of sin's disguise I tempted Fate.
"I knew thy weakness!" sneered my foe,
I saved myself, and balked his hate.
For half my blessings, half my gain,
I needs must thank my trusty foe;
Despite his envy and disdain,
He serves me well wher'er I go.
So may I keep him to the end,
Nor may his enmity abate;
More faithful that the fondest friend,
He guards me with his hate.
