No Time to Celebrate - America Under Seige

Happy Birthday, Mr Lincoln. Though I am not such a fan as other Republicans, your resolution of the Civil War has had a lasting affect on these United States.

However, there is no time to celebrate.

The Economic Stimulus, Lincoln's Birthday, and a Plummeting DJIA are all important in their own rights, however, are acting as distractions to some nasty happenings in the United States.

First is H.R. 45 (Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009). It requires, within the first two years, that all new guns be registered. The bill goes retroactive after two years. Meaning that two years after the passage of the bill, ALL FIREARMS in a citizen's possession must be registered, not just those purchased after the bill passes, and this apparently applies to antique firearms as well. Every five years the firearm owner must go through a complete renewal process for each weapon owned. Failure to comply carries stiff penalties including confiscation of the firearms and jail time (penalties as high as ten years imprisonment in some cases). The bill also authorizes government searches without warrant, the creation of a federal bureaucracy to monitor firearm possession, etc.

**The Bill Prohibits:
1. Transferring a firearm to any person other than a licensee, unless the transfer is processed through a licensed dealer in accordance with national instant criminal background check system requirements, with exceptions;
2. Licensed manufacturer or dealer from failing to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements of this Act;
3. Failing to report the loss or theft of the firearm to the Attorney General within 72 hours;
4. Failing to report to the Attorney General an address change within 60 days;
5. Keeping a loaded firearm, or an unloaded firearm and ammunition for the firearm, knowingly or recklessly disregarding the risk that a child is capable of gaining access, if a child uses the firearm and causes death or serious bodily injury.

**Prescribes criminal penalties for violations of firearms provisions covered by this Act. Directs the Attorney General to:
1. Establish and maintain a firearm injury information clearinghouse;
2. Conduct continuing studies and investigations of firearm-related deaths and injuries; and
3. Collect and maintain current production and sales figures of each licensed manufacturer. Authorizes the Attorney General to certify state firearm licensing or record of sale systems.

The bill is being reworked to attract co-sponsors, but it is the very type of law that Obama would gladly sign - see my previous post on the Heller decision under an Obama Court.

Secondly, The Civil war brewing in Mexico is beginning to spill over into the United States - target Phoenix. Phoenix AZ has become the target of Mexico City style ransom kidnap attacks - the tactic preferred by Mexican drug lords/warlords... drug violence, which is fueling unrest in the Latin American country is now being imported across our failed southern border - and there is nothing being done to stop it. With the drug demand in the United States being the fuel for the fire in Mexico, it is not surprising that the violence associated with the war follow the supply. Is Martial Law on the horizon for the border states?


  1. . . . your resolution of the Civil War has had a lasting affect on these United States.

    There's a double meanin' in that.

    As t' HR 45 and th' proposed ammunition microstampin' measure, I kinda doubt th' first one'll see th' light of day. Th' Dems know wut kind of popular backlash will occur if'n either of th' bills becomes law, 'n arguably they're not so stupid as t' do t' themselves again what they did in 1994, or worse.

    However, they *could*. Who knows what kind of particular delusions infect th' collective liberal mind here in 2009, with th' accession of this "Yes-We-Can Messiah"? 'N th' Dems do happen to be th' majority party. Plus, as ye suggest, they mite jus' rework th' bill t' make it more "palatable."

    If'n either of these bills become law, however, thar's real trouble ahed.

    Look fir widespread noncompliance 'n resistance of various types. In states whar gun registration laws have been passed, thar has been substantial noncompliance. For instance, an estimated 80% of California "assault weapon" owners refused t' comply with-att state's registration law. Think how high th' percentage of noncompliance will be in Middle 'n Southern America.

    As fir official threats of secession if such bills become law, keep your eye ohn Montana. There appeared t' be strohng secessionist sentiment expressed there on the eve of th' Heller decision. 'N if not secession, I can imagine some states thankin' real hard 'bout some sort of nullification if either law is passed. Think Real ID.

    I personally am not wrangin' my hands over this-un. That's cuz I don't thank th' bills are viable in th' first place, but if'n th' anti-gun morons ARE able t' ram either one of 'em through, I believe it will be th' beginning of our finest hour, because we are going to tell these librul Yankees, in so many words, t' go straight t' hell.

  2. Jonesie - I am never shocked at the lengths politicians will go to take away the basic rights of us "normal citizens"... Put simply, I was never one to sit back and quietly take orders... from no-one!

    It should be known what this clown is attempting to do with HR45... It should be known what Obama intends to do with ammunition... and it should be known to the politicians that we "nobody's" down here in middle america ain't having any!
