Mayor Bloomberg, try Sensible Gun Control.
BOISE, March 21, 2014 – On Thursday, Idaho Governor Butch Otter (R) signed a bill, which would effectively nullify future federal gun laws, by prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition.
S1332 passed the house by a vote of 68-0 and the senate by a vote of 34-0. Alaska and Kansas have also passed similar laws.
Erich Pratt, Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America, cheered the governor’s action. “By signing this nullification bill into law, Idaho has joined an elite class of states that are telling the feds to ‘get lost’ ��especially when it comes to unconstitutional gun control infringements”
Introduced by the State Affairs Committee, the Idaho Federal Firearm, Magazine and Register Ban Enforcement Act, will:
“protect Idaho law enforcement officers from being directed, through federal executive orders, agency orders, statutes, laws, rules, or regulations enacted or promulgated on or after the effective date of this act, to violate their oath of office and Idaho citizens’ rights under Section 11, Article I, of the Constitution of the State of Idaho.”
The legislation continued:
any official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision thereof who knowingly and willfully orders an official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision of the state to enforce any executive order, agency order, law, rule or regulation of the United States government as provided in subsection (2) of this section upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition shall, on a first violation, be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) which shall be paid into the general fund of the state…
S1332 also includes an emergency provision meaning it takes effect immediately upon signature.
Tenth Amendment Center national communications director Mike Maharrey considered the legislation a good start. “This is an important first step for Idaho,” he said. “Getting this law passed will ensure that any new plans or executive orders that might be coming our way will not be enforced in Idaho. Then, once this method is established and shown to be effective, legislators can circle back and start doing the same for federal gun control already on the books. SB1332 is an important building block for protecting the 2nd Amendment in Idaho.”
Passage into law represents a giant step forward in protecting the right to keep and bear arms in Idaho. As the law now stands, state and local law enforcement will not cooperate with all future federal firearm laws.
The bill rests on a well-established legal principle known as the anti-commandeering doctrine. Simply put, the federal government cannot force states to help implement or enforce and federal act or program The anti-commandeering doctrine rests primarily on four Supreme Court cases dating back to 1842. Printz v. United States serves as the cornerstone.
Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin said that the new Idaho law has opened Pandora’s box even wider.
“People are beginning to realize that this practice is completely constitutional and legal. In the near future, you will see a wave of states passing even broader legislation to fight the federal government on everything ranging from more traditionally liberal issues like hemp and marijuana, to more conservative issues like Obamacare.” Boldin continued, “Nullification isn’t a left vs. right issue. It destroys the fallacy of the left right paradigm and is the remedy for all unconstitutional laws.”

The answer to my question? Well, we had a similar law being considered here. However our “leaders” succumbed to the pressures that are opposed to freedom and liberty. The election looms friends. Let us all remember who had the courage to stand and be counted as among those that support our most deeply held values. As well as remembering those that did not.
Canadian’s Version of David Letterman’s Top 10. This is Canada’s Top Ten List of America’s Stupidity: From a Yahoo Board…March 22, 2014
10) Only in America … could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.
9) Only in America … could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal work force is black while only 14% of the population is black. 40+% of all federal entitlements go to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!
8) Only in America … could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
7) Only in America … can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.
6) Only in America … would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.
5) Only in America … could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”
4) Only in America … could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
3) Only in America … could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
2) Only in America … could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.
1) Only in America … could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.
Since the other post got fouled up somehow here is a repeat.
Agenda drives the left, in all things. The more dead kids there are, the more fodder for the leftest agenda. Alinsky would be proud. The more that we learn about the mass killers the more we find out how they are drugged, and supporters of leftest ideologies. I for one am going to start referring to the entire lot of them as murderers. Because that is what they are.
When others talk of full blown revolution I will no longer speak about temperance. I’m not, after all, that kind of a Christian. More power to the people of America as envisioned by those that established this great nation!
A bunch of kid killers support the Free Fire Zones. Let us be diligent in reminding them about that at every turn!
“I mean if we’re going to be afraid of things, let’s be afraid of that which actually exists in reality, not some pistol boogeyman born of a gun phobia.”
These were the words of conservative radio commentator and Fox and Blaze TV contributor Dana Loesch Friday as she took on the blatantly anti-gun anchors of ABC News.
ABC News aired a special report Friday evening called “Young Guns,” which examined the issue of guns in America within the context of children who are injured or killed each year by persons with firearms. ABC anchors Diane Sawyer and David Muir presented a slanted report as is often the case with the mainstream media.
Common sense safety measures are always important when handling a gun. Parents are sometimes lax in following these common sense guidelines.
But is the problem as widespread as the ABC News piece claimed?
Statistics show otherwise. Among all of the injuries and murders involving individuals with guns only a very small percentage are attributable to the carelessness of parents. And among that small number is even a smaller number of children who are injured or killed by parents who failed to follow common sense safety guidelines.
This fact led to Loesch’s words, quoted above, pointing to the fact that ABC News erected a straw boogeyman on which it could then blame the deaths of children. ABC further repeated the false meme that kids being killed by those who use firearms is reaching epidemic proportions.
A video of Loesch’s response to the ABC News anti-gun hit piece can be found at the top of the page.
Once again, a mere cursory consideration of the statistical facts disprove the myth that “gun violence” against children is on the rise. Actually, deaths that result from the use of firearms is way down, across the board, and have been in decline for the past 20 years.
The most interesting statistic of all, however, is that child mortality rates stemming from the use of firearms is anything but reaching epidemic proportions. Here again, the statistics show otherwise. The number of children who die in gun related incidents is way down and has been on the decline for two decades.
But ABC tipped its hand not only by making false claims in the segment but by its inclusion of the government-initiated propaganda, urging its viewers to “snoop on their neighbors and ask whether or not they have guns.”
That statement alone, along with the false assumptions that are not corroborated by factual statistics, exposes the real reason ABC ran the piece. The objective was not to examine the issue objectively apart from any hidden agenda but to propagate the big lie that guns are evil, that if you are a gun owner with children you will probably suffer from the death of a child eventually, and thus, guns must be restricted and even banned altogether.
This means, simply, that the special report “Young Guns” was a propaganda piece courtesy of the mainstream media that serves to advance the agenda of the collectivists who presently run the U.S. government.

Now, Which 46 Senators Voted to Destroy Us? Well, let their names become known !! See below
In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The Statement of Purpose from the Bill reads: “To uphold Second Amendment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.” The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and export of small firearms. The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. and had language that would have implemented an international gun registry, now get this, on all private guns and ammo.
Astonishingly, 46 out of our 100 United States Senators were willing to give away our Constitutional rights to a foreign power.
Here are the 46 senators who voted to give your rights to the U.N.
Folks: This needs to go viral. These Senators voted to let the UN take OUR guns. They need to lose their next election. We have been betrayed.
46 Senators Voted to Give your 2nd Amendment Constitutional Rights to the U.N.
Please send this to SOMEONE!
Hat Tip to TEXASFRED
Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are showing signs they have the President’s back.January 26, 2014
A little over a week ago, President Barack Obama proposed even more Executive Actions on gun control.
Now, Senators John Cornyn (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) are showing signs they have the President’s back.
That’s because they’re pushing a brand new anti-gun bill.
It’s the “Graham-Cornyn Seek Help, Lose Your Guns Act.”
Insiders warn their new bill could be aimed at expanding the National Instant Criminal Background Check (NICS) system to include hundreds of thousands — or millions — of law-abiding citizens under the ruse of “mental health.”
Make no mistake . . .
. . . The President’s agenda has nothing to do with mental health, or keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals.
It has everything to do with labeling YOU mentally ill in order to strip you of your right to keep and bear arms without due process.
The goal is simple: seek treatment and lose your gun rights.
So why do Senators Cornyn and Graham have Obama’s Back?
It’s simple. Let me explain . . .
Senators Cornyn and Graham are feeling the heat from the radical anti-gun left.
Instead of standing firm for your Second Amendment rights, they’re desperate to appear “sensible” and “open to compromise” even if it means putting you and I at risk.
But they’re really playing right into the President’s hands.
Last year, the duo sponsored S.480 — the so-called “NICS Reporting Improvement Act.”
Under that Graham-Cornyn bill, virtually any “board, commission, or other adjudicative body” would have the ability to strip you of your gun rights.
One of these so-called “authorities” could order an otherwise law-abiding individual to see a mental health counselor and strip them their gun rights for good.
Let me put it another way:
If your condition is “severe” enough that an hour of outpatient treatment a week is all you need — you could become a “prohibited person” at the whim of some anti-gun bureaucrat.
That’s not due process!
The Graham-Cornyn bill will further erode your Second Amendment rights and strip the due process rights of law-abiding Americans.
This isn’t about being violent or unstable; this is about losing your rights because of something as simple as a stress-induced visit to a therapist.
According to the National Institute of Health, nearly half of all Americans will suffer from a “mental health” issue at some point in their life.
And the simple fact is the gun-grabbers know this.
The Obama Administration has been pushing for these gun control expansions in the name of “mental health” for some time.
It’s clear they will do anything to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding Americans.
Even if it means harming the rights of thousands — or millions — of law-abiding, vulnerable and non-violent individuals.
Over 175,000 veterans have already lost their gun rights, simply by seeking treatment.
But that’s not the worst part.
They aren’t even required to give you a trial.
That’s because “adjudication” no longer means “by a court of law.”
It now includes “other lawful authorities,” which could include ANY mental health professional in connection with a government program.
Are Senators Cornyn and Graham trying to strip away the gun rights of millions of Americans?
I hope not.
But that’s exactly what insiders are warning that Senators Cornyn and Graham could be doing with their latest proposal.
That’s why I need you to contact Senators Cornyn and Graham IMMEDIATELY.
Tell them not to endanger the gun rights of millions of Americans.
Insist they stop pushing the “Graham-Cornyn Seek Help, Lose Your Guns Act.”
*** You can reach Senator Cornyn at (202) 224-2934.
*** And Senator Graham at (202) 224-5972.
Please let the Senators know how important this issue is and that you will be counting on them to stand up for gun owners.
There’s no time to waste. Please act now.
Executive Vice President
“[A] Pew poll suggests that illegal immigrants, if given citizenship, would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.” – GOA’s Erich Pratt, commenting on Pew poll findings as reported in The Washington Post (7/22/13)
Next Wednesday, the House Republican leadership will announce a set of “principles” for immigration reform. Supposedly, if these “principles” are not well-received, the House will shelve the issue for the remainder of the year.
To be blunt: The health of the Second Amendment relies on demolishing these “principles.”
Immigration reform will add over 8,000,000 anti-gun voters to the voting rolls. There may be as many as 11.5 million persons illegally in the United States. And, a Pew poll from last year indicated that if illegal immigrants were given citizenship, they would vote for liberal, anti-gun candidates by an 8-to-1 margin.
This is exactly what happened to California — which was once a Red State. Because of the Simpson-Mazzoli amnesty bill of 1986, the state lurched violently to the left and now can’t pass gun control restrictions fast enough.
If this were to happen at the national level, we would lose the ability to stop massive gun bans and gun registration schemes. And all of this occurs at a time when a Fox poll shows the American people oppose Obama’s immigration policies by a margin of 36% to 54%.
The first reality is this: If the House passes ANYTHING, the Senate will tack on its amnesty bill and send it to conference. And the national conversation will turn off of ObamaCare and onto immigration.
And guess what? Every gun-hating institution which moved heaven and earth to pass gun control will move heaven and earth to get the House to retreat — if not to a “pathway to citizenship,” to a “pathway to legalization.”
They will have created the biggest and most motivated Obama-loving movement in the country — devoted to electing anti-gun politicians and retaining Harry Reid’s control of the Senate.
What will Republicans get, in exchange for creating an army of pro-Obama election warriors?
Very little. (Be sure to read GOA legislative counsel Michael Hammond’s analysis, which shows, in great detail, how the Republican leadership’s “principles” will end up back-firing on gun owners.)
The bottom line is that there is a reason why Barack Obama and his “puppet press” have been campaigning for a year to force the Republican House to wade into “immigration reform.” It is nothing but benefits for anti-gun politicians, and nothing but pain for pro-gun legislators.
Who would be stupid enough to inflict that level of pain on themselves?
ACTION: Contact your Representative. If he is a Republican, the pre-written letter will ask him to reject the ridiculous “immigration principles” being hawked by the leadership — principles that will eventually destroy the pro-gun movement in America. The pre-written letter for Democrats is a generic opposition letter.
ADMINISTRATIVE NOTE: Remember that clicking on the first “submit” button on the GOA Engage site (where you input your name and address), only submits your information so that your correct legislators can be identified. Hence, the first “submit” button does not actually send your letter. Instead, it brings you to the next page where you can actually review the pre-written letter. The second “submit” button actually sends the letter.
Just as Obamacare isn’t at all about healthcare, immigration reform is not about immigration.
In a “Friday media dump” designed to conceal its actions by releasing them after the press has left town, the Obama administration last week announced its intention to push two regulations which would massively expand the federal gun bans imposed on Americans.
“SEE A SHRINK; LOSE YOUR GUNS”
The first proposal — from HHS — would effectively say that federal health privacy laws (HIPAA) do not apply to the Second Amendment.
This isn’t the first time Obama has stuck his leering eyeballs into Americans’ medical records and private affairs. From its Orwellian government database on Americans’ health records to its voracious seizure of Americans’ phone records, the Obama administration can’t trample our personal privacy fast enough.
But HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius’ efforts to turn over personal mental health information to the government’s gun ban blacklist (NICS) is particularly loathsome.
Not to be outdone in the Sebelius/Holder “Mutt and Jeff act,” Attorney General Eric Holder — currently being pursued for contempt of Congress — intends to seize guns from persons subject to “outpatient commitments (even without a court order) (and) … someone (deemed by some bureaucrat to be) lacking mental responsibility or deemed insane…”
More than 150,000 law-abiding veterans have already lost their constitutional rights — with no due process whatsoever — because they consulted a VA therapist about a traumatic incident in Iraq, Afghanistan, or the Balkans.
Under these new regulations, tens of millions of police and firemen with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder — or people who, as kids, were diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder — could lose their constitutional rights without any court order, merely because they sought a benefit under a federal program.
And you want to know the hidden agenda behind DOJ’s “commitment” language? We have a member in a rabidly anti-gun state. Many years ago, he was picked up by police and, without the approval of any court, sent to a mental facility overnight for “observation.” The mental facility found no mental problems and promptly released him.
However, many years later, as a result of that state’s anti-gun crackdown (which Holder is now trying to emulate), his name has been sent to the NICS system. He has lost his constitutional rights, and it will cost him tens of thousands of dollars (which he does not have) to get them back.
We believe this is unlawful under current law. But it will probably not be unlawful by the end of Holder’s regulatory proceedings.
What does Sebelius have to say about this? Well, she is surprisingly flip: “There is a strong public safety need for this information to be accessible to the NICS, and some states are currently under-reporting or not reporting certain information to the NICS at all.”
And this from the White House: “…when persons with a mental illness do not receive the treatment they need, the result can be tragedies such as homicide or suicide.”
But herein lies the problem: When Americans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Attention Deficit Disorder realize that nothing they say to their therapist is really confidential, they’re not going to be seeking treatment for very long.
But there’s an even more fundamental problem: Last winter, Barack Obama decided that he would devote the first half of 2013 to the destruction of what he and his supporters characterized as “the gun manufacturers’ lobby.” Tens of millions of Americans let their senators and representatives know that they found Obama’s views and Obama’s legislation to be odious and offensive. As a result, it was rejected in the Democrat-controlled Senate.
So now, as has happened so many times before, Obama has set himself “above the law.” What could not be done using constitutional processes is now being slammed through by regulatory fiat.
The Justice Department and HHS regulations will now be submitted for “public comment and review.” But, as with everything else Holder and Sebelius do, this is little more than a sham.
Rather, our efforts will be to get Congress to defund these unconstitutional efforts. And we will start by submitting proposed legislation to friendly senators and representatives.
ACTION: Click here to contact your senators and representative. Ask them to cosponsor and support legislation which will block Barack Obama’s unconstitutional gun bans.
