The right to bear arms is an individual right, and it cannot be granted by the US government.
The founders did not trust the newly created government with that right and purposely omitted it from the enumerated rights. But the People were not satisfied, and they got together all across our nation and voted on an amendment to be added that would bar ALL types of Arms laws - It was voted on, passed, and the amendment was added to the Constitution itself.
Laws that regulate arms cannot be made, they were forbidden and ARE forbidden. We forbade them.
These politicians think that the right is a privilege to be doled out and banned at will, on any whim, and to any degree, and that is not true. A RIGHT is a legal, ethical, and moral title or claim to the possession of property and/or authority - and we possess the only authority to regulate guns, and that is on an individual basis. That authority is not granted to the state, and can not be granted to the state unless the people are polled, and 3/4 of the Citizens of the United States agree to grant that right, and what those limits are.
ALL laws, from the city made laws to the federal laws that regulate guns and arms in general are illegitimate. What that means is that they are moot, and have no foundation in law. Even the cases from the Supreme Court are moot because the court was never granted jurisdiction over this right. The right belongs to the people, and not to the government.
A few days ago, I saw a video on Youtube where a city council was taking comments before they passed a gun ban. I saw men and women who already posses a right stand in front of a podium and plead with a dozen government officers to be allowed to keep the right. It made me sick. The right does not belong to the government to take away, and all laws they make are invalid.
A Right is defined as...
The standard of permitted or forbidden action within a certain sphere; The Legal Ethical and Moral Title or claim to the possession of property or authority; That which we have a personal obligation; The title to something properly possessed by a person; What one may properly claim, one\\\'s due.
A Title is defined as...
To Designate by a certain name - to describe, term, style, name, and call and action, or property.
A privilege is defined as...
A special right granted to a person or people which otherwise would be disallowed or illegal.
We own the right. We own the name of the right. We own the right to exercise that right by the terms we set. We own the entire sphere of arms rights. We own the sole authority of the right. We own the obligation to regulate ourselves of face the penalties of our actions. It is our due, and it is ours, lock, stock and barrel.
It is not a privilege to be banned, regulated, and limited. Any politician who agrees to limits on this right have committed a crime against the people of the United States, and have violated their oath of office to abide the Constitution - INCLUDING the limits imposed on the government and it\\\'s agents by us, the People.
The right is an individual right, individual to me, and individual to you. We both, collectively and separately have the responsibility of our own actions - and if we violate the law with our right to bear arms, then we individually should stand for those crimes. That is the burden we bear for keeping this right to ourselves, and the responsibility we bear for those who violate the trust placed in them by the People and by our founders. While you may punish people who have violated the laws, you may never punish someone before they commit a crime simply because they might.
Senate Panel violates Oath of Office by allowing illegitimate bill to pass.
Senate Democrats, along a party line vote, allowed an unsupported and illegitimate bill to pass committee. Firearms rights are not regulated under the US Constitution, and laws infringing them are forbidden by very specific protections placed in the Constitution. By violating the 2nd amendment against illegal gun laws, the 10 traitorous democrats, led by Dianne Feinstein of California, banded together to violate their oath of offices, and pass this bastardized legislation with will hurt everyone, including manufacturers, and people who need these weapons to hunt, defend themselves, and enjoy the liberties that are afforded by our honored Constitution.
These ten Democrats took the following oath, \"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
An oath-breaker, someone who has violated their Oath of Office by;
1. Refusing to defend the Constitution against the violation of one of it\'s amendments that has forbidden laws that regulate arms.
2. Refusing to support the Constitution by authoring and/or actively supporting the violation of a ban on laws that regulate arms.
3. By refusing to faithfully discharge the duties of their office by not preventing this kind of illegitimate bill from passing their perview.
These ten men and women,
Christopher A. Coons
Have committed Treason by attempting to overthrow the Constitution of the United States, and have betrayed that very document they swore to uphold. They are guilty of High Crimes and Misdemeanors, and should be immediately arrested, and placed into custody.
Thousands of citizens provide input to help Task Force reach consensus
Today the Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection, delivered their final report to the Office of the Florida Senate President, Office of the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives and the Executive Office of the Governor.
The Task Force concluded that Florida Statute 776 is a good law and should not be overturned. On page five of their final report the Task Force’s top recommendations states:
The Task Force concurs with the core belief that all persons, regardless of citizenship status, have a right to feel safe and secure in our state. To that end, all persons who are conducting themselves in a lawful manner have a fundamental right to stand their ground and defend themselves from attack with proportionate force in every place they have a lawful right to be.
Governor Rick Scott said, “I want to commend the 19 members of the Citizen Safety Task Force and Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll for their thorough and thoughtful consideration of Florida Statute 776. This diverse Task Force listened to the people of Florida and provided a platform for different viewpoints to be shared on the important issue of citizen safety. I met with Trayvon Martin’s parents and our hearts go out to the entire family for their loss, especially as we approach the anniversary of his death. We look forward to reviewing this final report as we approach the beginning of the legislative session.”
The final Citizen Safety Task Force report, video links to all of the task force meetings, correspondence and public input considered is located on the Task Force website.

The Task Force on Citizen Safety and Protection, led by Lt. Governor Jennifer Carroll, held public meetings in seven cities across Florida and listened to subject matter experts and citizens. They concluded that Floridians have the right to defend themselves and the right to stand their ground when attacked. They concur that Floridians have the right to arm and protect themselves and their families from violence.
Finally, a common sense gun law I can agree with.
Hose Bill 633, submitted to the Missouri's legislature should be a model bill for the rest of the country. It reads...
“Any member of the general assembly who proposes a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bear arms, as set forth under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, shall be guilty of a class D felony.”
It's the very first time I've seen a bill that was designed to protect individuals from their government. We need this bill spread far and wide across the nation, to every city, every county, every state, and to our Congress itself.
