Court: Obama appointments violate Constitution; So what else is new?

January 25, 2013

WASHINGTON – In an embarrassing setback for President Barack Obama, a federal appeals court panel ruled Friday that he violated the Constitution in making certain recess appointments and moved to curtail a chief executive’s ability in the future to circumvent the Senate in such scenarios.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit said that Obama did not have the power to make three recess appointments last year to the National Labor Relations Board because the Senate was officially in session – and not in recess – at the time. If the decision stands, it could invalidate hundreds of board decisions.

Cynthia Lummis closet anti Bill of Rights?

March 2, 2012

From Wyoming Gun Owners, used with permission.

While you and I were busy fighting an expansion of gun-free zones here in Wyoming, the folks in Washington D.C. were moving to enact new gun control on a unsuspecting public.

Sadly Representative Cynthia Lummis voted YES on a measure that criminalizes someone that is lawfully carrying a firearm for self defense.

Under this federal legislation, H.R. 347 – Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act, anyone addressing the government with grievances (like the first amendment guarantees) while lawfully in possession of a firearm, could face ten years in prison.

The gun grabbers recipe is simple:

Create new places where the second amendment no longer applies – Start by taking something as harmless as tea party gathering, combine new regulations that say it’s disruptive of government business, finally throw law abiding gun owners into the mix, and there you have it, gun owners under the bus again!

Cheyenne--Tea-Party protesters in front of the Capital, many were lawfully armed.
Cheyenne Tea-Party gathered in front of the Wyoming Capital — many were lawfully armed. (Federal building in background)

The text in H.R. 347 is so telling of the real agenda — expansive gun control– just being in the “proximity” of federal property — could be punishable.

Who defines “proximity”?

Does it mean 10 or 10,000 feet?

Please call Rep. Cynthia Lummis and tell her a vote for “gun control” no matter how insignificant it may seem is a vote against Wyoming.

Call and email Rep. Lummis here

P.S. Wyoming Gun Owners is the ONLY pro-gun organization working at this level — please consider contributing to the effort by chipping in just $20 so we can stay in the fight.

Free fire zones for the unlawful are not the answer to some perceived “problem.” Remember, it’s the forces of anti freedom and liberty that take the position of never letting a crisis, real or imaginary, go to waste.

The incremental chipping away of our rights and freedoms is not to be taken lightly and we should, each and every one of us let our leaders at all levels know that.
