Sixth Circuit Upholds Second Amendment; Strikes Involuntary Commitment as Permanent Disqualifier


Free Republic

via Gun Watch

Another step has been taken to restore second amendment rights to the position that they held before the modern assault on the Constitution.   It is an important case because it establishes the precedent that your second amendment rights cannot be permanently removed for a temporary condition; and that the proper level of scrutiny in the court is the highest accorded to fundamental constitutional rights, that  of strict scrutiny.  From the opinion of the court, pdf file:

BOGGS, Circuit Judge. This case presents an important issue of first impression in the federal courts: whether a prohibition on the possession of firearms by a person “who has been committed to a mental institution,” 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(4), violates the Second Amendment. Twenty-eight years ago, Clifford Charles Tyler was involuntarily committed for less than one month after allegedly undergoing an emotionally devastating divorce. Consequently, he can never possess a firearm. Tyler filed suit in federal court, seeking a declaratory judgment that § 922(g)(4) is unconstitutional as applied to him. The district court dismissed Tyler’s suit for failure to state a claim. Because Tyler’s complaint validly states a violation of the Second Amendment, we reverse and remand.

It is of significant interest that much of the case centers on the refusal of the federal government to provide a mechanism for relief in these cases.   In point of fact, disarmists have blocked passage of funding to allow cases to be reviewed, and the Justice Department refuses to review cases at all.

Notice to Democrats

Socialism is Not the Answer

I guess Rush said it best, “winners don’t compromise, losers do.” Well, I voted, and what I remember  is the Republicans knocking the socks off of the Democrats and don’t remember being transported to another planet since then. Now, all of a sudden, the Democrats want to work with the Republicans. Well, I would like to respond to that.

Notice to all Democratic Politicians, the ones who called us domestic terrorist for believing and standing up for the American Flag and the U.S. Constitution, who called members of the Tea Party terrorist or tea baggers, who sent the IRS knocking at our doors, who called us racist for the past 6 years because we didn’t agree the Community Organizer in Chief, the Narcissist in Chief.

You know who you are. You are the same ones who refused to listen to The People when we said we didn’t want obamacare. Remember Nancy?

and  lets not forget about this one…..

SCREW YOU!!!!!!!!!

We the People are not your lap dogs, we are not your door mats for you to walk on. We are the ones that keep this Country moving, day and night and we are the ones who pay your salary…………….REMEMBER? You work for US, not the other way around.

WE VOTED and Socialism is not the Answer, in fact SOCIALISM SUCKS. We are America, we have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, it has worked for over 200 years, it doesn’t need to be changed and if you don’t like it, I’ll help you pack.

Obama’s Policies & Programs Condemned by American Voters

awakened-everywhere

Gulag Bound

by

Any way we slice it, last night’s election feast was delicious for the people of the United States of America… and united we were. The Republicans gained back the US Senate–and therefore both Congressional houses–which was a must in order to stop the country’s already nearly fatal hemorrhaging. Republicans also won one after another gubernatorial races…even leftist Massachusetts! That could not have happened unless Independents and Democrats also cast their ballots with the GOP voters.

And what was Barack Hussein Obama’s comment? Obama complained that the “red state map” was stacked against him. He is also said to be very angry with us. We are, also, being told by the US leftist media that “this wasn’t because people like Republicans but, because they don’t like Obama and his policies.” Well—duh! That’s one of the major reasons people vote other people out of power! Don’t you just love it when someone quotes the obvious in a way that it’s supposed to be received as a profundity?

However, to many of us, the Republicans haven’t been active in trying to right the country Obama is destroying. Then again, they haven’t controlled both houses of Congress. Now they do. So from February 2015 until the end of 2016, the elected Republicans must bring their strength, character, honor and courage to bear in beginning the work to repair the extensive damage Obama and the Marxist Dems have affected. And…unlike Obama and the Marxist Dems–they must listen to We-the-People who are the largest branch of the US government!

freedom-huddleOver the next few weeks, I’ll be presenting a series of columns on what I view as the things which need to be brought about in order to correct the course of the US Ship of State and what we can all do to bring it about. I’ll be very interested in your comments. In the meantime, I think we can at least take a couple of days to just breathe…for a change. Then, it’s back to work for our country and one another. In the meantime, let’s all give thanks to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob for this final chance to save our country with His help. Thank you Lord!

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
–2 Chronicles 7:14

Second Amendment Crushes Gun Control Candidates In Midterm Elections

Free Republic

As the election returns came in on November 4 one thing was evident—the Second Amendment crushed gun control candidates in Senate and gubernatorial races around the country.

In so doing, the Second Amendment annihilated the left’s relentless claim that 90 percent of Americans support more gun control.

On the gubernatorial level, in Arizona, pro-Second Amendment candidate Doug Ducey (R) beat gun control candidate Fred DuVaul (D). And in Florida, pro-Second Amendment incumbent Rick Scott (R) beat gun control candidate Charlie Crist. These victories were enhanced by the fact that Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly endorsed DuVal and Giffords’ gun control PAC gave $100,000 to Crist’s campaign.

The Second Amendment trumped their endorsement and their money.

Why Vote?

Every election is “the most important” for the simple reason that it has the potential of making our lives better or worse.

What makes elections scary is that votes are cast by people who often have paid little attention to the events, issues, policies or the candidates involved. Casting a vote requires knowing something about the times in which one lives and the persons promising to make them better.

“In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.” That’s John Adams, our second President, a Founding Father, and though I suspect he was joking, I also suspect he was half serious.

US Marine Released From Mexico… Our Marine Is Coming Home

Conservative Tribune

Finally, Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the American Marine who was held in Mexico, is about to be released. According to a family spokesman, a Mexican judge ordered that he be released from prison immediately.

He spent over eight months in prison as his family begged and pleaded with the Obama administration to no avail to work to secure his release.
