All we could say is, “this is scary”. People will sign anything. Watch this video on a “mock” petition to take away guns from right wing extremist Tea Party members while leaving illegal guns on the streets.
There’s not much explaining to do on this one expect that it would make law abiding citizens criminals. You can see the actual law on the Ohio Legislative site at this link.
Sec. 2923.171. states that “No person shall knowingly possess or acquire any “assault weapon.”. If enacted and passed into law, this would make hundreds of thousands of Ohio citizens immediate criminals. It would be a felony of the 5th degree to even posses such a firearm.
This is not about assault weapons but part of a total deconstruction of the Constitution. Yes, that may sound alarmist, but consider the ramifications.
What if they tell you it from this point forward you can no longer own an SUV as they are deemed to dangerous? Sound outrageous?
Look at what Obamacare is bringing and tell me we knew everything about that before it became law….

Alex Jones, who started the WhiteHouse.gov petition to deport Piers for his support in subverting the US Constitution, confronted Morgan on his own CNN show. See the video below for more statistics to back up Alex Jones statements. I have a feeling this is just the tipping point for this issue and the people are going to stand united on this against President Obama, Congress, and those who would intend to restrict our Constitutional rights.
At Harold ISD in Texas, they have allowed teachers to conceal and carry. David Thweatt logically spells out why they are allowing teachers to carry weapons on their campus. The reasoning? They are 30 minutes from law enforcement and their teachers are the first line of defense. And there are more than just one teacher carrying. The reasoning here is if only a security guard has a gun and he is killed, everyone else is dead. If one teacher is incapacitated, there are multiple others who can protect the children.
In addition, they point out that most shooters that commit these types of aggression do it in “gun free zones”.
The video is about 15 minutes long, but the reasoning for allowing this in the face of national scrutiny is extremely logical. It seems though on a national scale, logic is trumped by feelings and emotion.
In the wake of the tragedy in Aurora, CO this past week there have been an ubiquitous call by firearm control advocates for the either the ban on large capacity magazines, the AR-15 rifle itself, and tighter restrictions on guns in general. The most gun restrictive mayor in the county, Mayor Bloomburg of New York, is calling on President Obama and Mitt Romney to do something about it.
Here in Ohio there is no law against Open Carry. Ohio Revised Code 9.68 protects individual rights to open carry, and provide that uniform state laws regarding open carry supersede local ordinances on the ban of open or conceal carry.
Unfortunately, in the aftermath of such a tragedy where an individual decided to cause mass casualties, everyone is super-sensitive and it makes a prime political opportunity for gun control activists to try to get people to react on emotion and not reason. Continue reading Arming the Victims…
Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.
In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the “big fish.” But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called “gunwalking,” and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called “Demand Letter 3″. That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or “long guns.” Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information.
** Update 1047am Friday December 2nd 2011. Apparently the web traffic USAammo.com’s website from the news coverage has increased to a point and crashed their server at one point after it went viral. You can view a cached copy as seen below at the end of this article.**
Friday December 2nd, 2011 USAammo.com, a gun supply, ammunition, and supplies store who mainly targets sales online has created quite a stir with a controversial ad campaign. The campaign compares president Obama in the same context as Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, and others who implemented gun control and killed millions through the government repression that allowed for mass genocide and tyrannical government controls.
The ad states that governments render their citizens defenseless through gun control. “Liberty is perpetuated by armed citizens. An armed citizen can defend himself against threat and foe.” the video explains. “The defenseless are subject to enslavement, imprisonment, and annihilation. ”
Apparently, the idea was conceived and emailed out early this week to coincide with Cyber Black Monday. And it has created a stir nationally in the political field.
National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act: Congressional support is growing for a bill (H.R.822) that would require all states to honor concealed carry firearm permits issued in any state. Under the legislation, citizens with a permit to carry a concealed weapon in one state could legally carry it into another, in accordance with the restrictions of that state. The House bill would give Americans who hold permits to carry firearms in their home states the right to carry their weapons across state lines.
Balanced Budget Amendment: Republicans in the House have introduced a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution. The measure, which would require two-thirds approval of both chambers of Congress and ratification by three-fourths of the states, would require that federal spending in any year not exceed total revenue. It would cap federal spending at 18 percent of gross domestic product and require the president to submit a balanced budget to Congress every year.
Lawmakers are considering a House bill that would give Americans who hold permits to carry firearms in their home states the right to carry their weapons across state lines.
Although many states have entered into voluntary agreements, there is no nationwide framework for honoring permits and licenses uniformly. A bipartisan bill, co-authored by Reps. Cliff Stearns, R-Fla., and Heath Shuler, D-N.C., aims to change that.
