  1. Next up: laser sights.

    Ultimately, the 2nd Amendment is working as designed to this point. There are approximately 300 million guns in private hands in the US, and around 15 billion rounds of ammunition.

    If the compliance rates for the newest gun control diktats are in the single digits, like New York and New Jersey, there is obviously public sentiment to defeat or disregard any new bill like this one.

    Second Amendment Supremacy


  2. JWR,

    Over at Zerohedge this morning:

    “Man Jailed After Police Find 3D Printed Gun And US Lawmaker Kill List”


    Let the false flags begin…

    I just went to YouTube and searched “HR 8” and “S 42”. With the exceptions of your Reluctant Prepper interview and a piece by The Gun Collective, there is nothing but crickets from the so-called “gun community” on these bills. If there is anything out there, they dare not call it by name for fear of demonetization. I assume that even those with millions of subscribers are too busy with “9mm vs .40”, “knockdown power of the .45”, or some other nonsense to alert their viewers of what’s coming.
    I admire your enthusiasm on this subject but I’m afraid we’re spraying water on a house that’s already burnt to the ground.
    Pray that the Senate holds firm so that these bills will go to the dustbin of history where they belong.

  3. Here in NM sheriffs are pushing back using the Left’s tactic of ‘sanctuary’ for illegals.

    Quay County sheriff has just declared his county a ‘sanctuary county for the 2nd Amendment.’ So he will not enforce any new gun laws signed by our new marxist governor.

    Chaves County commissioners will meet this Thursday to declare the same for their county.

    The way forward?

    Use the constitutional authority of the sheriff to nullify unconstitutional laws.

    1. Brooksy,
      The gun grab is a power/control grab and nothing else.Once upon a time in this country there was a group called the “Boy Scouts” and their motto was to “BE PREPARED” . Their motto makes good sense.

  4. More knee-jerk reaction from the Dem’s, RINO’s. As usual they want to penalize the law-biding citizens for what a very small minority is doing. Are they really that afraid of the citizens of this country and are willing to do anything to stay in power? It seems so.

  5. Question more than a comment.

    Nothing about manufacturing ones own firearms, as in completing 80% lowers? I guess there are not that many in the big scheme but a prohibition on this could easily be slipped in.

    What really worries me is things they throw in these things almost as afterthoughts sometimes. You know adding things like restrictions on gun parts or modifying firearms. In localities hostile to guns something as simple as adding a scope could make one in violation from an ambitious prosecutor.

  6. For life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I would gladly become a “felon”. It’s just a word. Like these ridiculous laws, just words. When the rubber meets the road, there you will find me. (Hopefully alive but if not, that’s ok too.)

  7. It is important to know that long ago that SCt clearly stated that rights are not subject to gov regulation, even with permission of the people. Today all things are regulated. This can only happen if all rights have long ago been converted to mere privileges.

    Point 2: No place in the fed constitution is the fed gov granted the power to come into the states and impose its general lawmaking powers upon the state-only citizens of the states. This happened many decades ago. For it to happen, the fed gov had come come under communist control and then impose military occupation upon the states and their true pre-14th citizens. For it to be successfully accomplished, the communists had to first take over the whole legal system.

    A uniform act that defies the constitutions can only happen by over throwing the constitutions.

  8. Seems like a law like this, if ratified, would end up getting gutted in the courts. But what would happen in the meantime? Would they use non-compiance to enact further police state gestapo measures? The possibility that Trump would even consider signing a bill like this should be a wake-up call.

    I agree with the idea that we should all be stacking deep.

  9. In Oregon, private party sales have been banned since 2015. (The majority of the population lives in the cities so unfortunately the libs run everything.)

    The result is a black market of people who are willing to sell privately anyway. Either there is no bill of sale, or it’s dated prior to 2015.

    This probably happens more often through local classified ads than through internet sites.

    I haven’t done this myself, of course, but I’ve heard about it.

  10. My two Connecticut senators, Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, are co-sponsors of Dianne Feinstein’s S. 42 bill. You’ll forgive me if I don’t write or call them. That would be pointless. However, I have written President Trump twice asking him to veto any of these bills that come across his desk. In Connecticut, after the Sandy Hook massacre, our state legislature and governor passed the “assault weapon” ban that Dianne Feinstein has planned for the rest of you in the US. Private gun sales are now a thing of the past in CT, and if those of you who still live in free states are not NOW seriously contacting your senators, you will see the US become CT. Many think bills like this are too preposterous to become law until they do. Believe me, you wouldn’t want to live behind enemy lines like we do in CT.

  11. This is why I reject “Freezoxee”.

    Freezoxee has “common sense censorship” of the 1st amendment.

    If the parallel rules happen for your 2nd amendment rights – “Gun Free Zone”, you would raise a warning and boycott the business in a microsecond.

    You don’t like what people say – legally – on Gab? Fine. But realize many people hate guns. And want a GunFreeZoxee zone.

    At some point you have to be radical for freedom and oppose “common sense” controls that abridge your rights.

    1. tz, FreeZoxee is walking a very thin line in this old man’s book. FreeZoxee management has told me that my belief in the principle of non-aggression is not welcomed there. I will not be bullied and told them to ban me if they must. We’ll see if they mature into a free speech site or just another censored, agenda-driven, hate-filled (against ALL Muslims) war-mongering site.

      I’ve suggested they read the likes of George Washington’s Farwell Address (arguably the greatest speech ever made of American soil), Eisenhower’s farewell warning, Dr. Ron Paul’s ‘Golden Rule’ speech, Smedley Butler’s warning, Constitutional Party Presidential candidate Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s sermons? Does Jesus Christ ring a bell?

  12. All gun laws are unconstitutional. We know that. It is more a matter of enforcement. My son is a law enforcement officer and he tells me that the rank and file officers in his state have no intention of enforcing new gun laws.

    However, nationwide, many law enforcement officers will ‘do their jobs’. Their paychecks and retirements depend on it.

    Government employees are paid a lot of money unlike the days when “civil service” was the norm. Money is the basis of control. The commies are smart. They infiltrate and buy the support of “useful idiots” (also known as socialists)
    and usually gain the support of well fed, warm, comfortable, lazy and greedy citizens that want even more.

    The republic will fall or this nonsense can stop right soon. Really, it is a choice.

  13. Talk is cheap. What did Patriots do when the Republicans’ NDAA gutted our Bill of Rights? Jack! Not one shot was fired. That was 8 years ago.

    Patriots may have hundreds of millions of guns and tons of ammo but do we have anything we will fight for?

    1. No. Most (not all) “murican” gunowners are spineless, weak-kneed, law-abiding Fudds. They will not risk their lives, their families, their houses, or jobs, or cars, or anything thing else that keeps them pacified, in exchange for standing up for their liberty.

      What they don’t realize is that they are going to lose it all anyway when they die, whether that happens in a contest for liberty or when they are 90 years old and in a nursing home.

      1. Yes Snotty Boy. Thomas Paine’s words In ‘Common Sense’ would ring as true today as they did in 1776. He warned of a lack of masculinity, a short-sighted and selfish attitude that disregards its effects on future generations. Paine spoke to people being content with conditions that “will last my time”. Today Paine’s words would fall on deaf ears.

    1. Most Senate votes require 60 votes. I’m not certain whether or not the vote will come up for a 51-member majority vote, as a reconciliation measure.
