Beretta leaves Maryland over gun laws, heads for Tennessee

Free Republic

Citing Maryland’s recently enacted firearm laws and the prospect of more restrictions, the U.S. arm of legendary Italian gunmaker Beretta announced Tuesday that it would move its manufacturing operations to Tennessee next year. The move makes Beretta the latest maker of guns or ammunition to move all or part of its operations to another state because of tightened gun control laws. General Manager Jeff Cooper said an early version of a statute passed last year by the Maryland state Senate would have prohibited the company from manufacturing or storing products in the state. “While we were able in the Maryland House of Delegates to

There are 50 Stars on that flag, not just one big one

American Thinker

Those in the federal government seem to desire and promote the steady creep of federal powers over their intended balance to State rights.  Since Obama’s election and during the reign of Eric Holder as Attorney General, a clever game of law enforcement / non enforcement has been in the works.  Never has our country just rolled over and watched such proceedings.  Regardless of your stance on certain issues, procedure must win out, not whimsical and desultory enforcement of law and total disregard for oaths taken.


Agenda supersedes required process.  Party trumps country.

There has been the selective non enforcement of duly passed law by this administration.  Inconsistent at first blush is the allowance of States to permit legal marijuana use.  This is in conflict with federal laws but is approved by the administration.  By what power do they ignore law? 

Yet when states such as Arizona attempt to enforce laws completely consistent with federal laws, the Department of Justice sues.  How absurd the inconsistencies appear to be, but there is a steady stream of action here.  Law is in effect being rewritten by either permitting the breaking of existing law, or failing to enforce passed law and making certain, by hiding behind the supremacy law, that States do not pick up the duty.  Case in point is the illegal immigration situation.  Arizona is told it has no “right” to police illegal immigration as passed federal law dictates the federal government should, yet Colorado is free to legalize marijuana in direct conflict with federal law.

In actuality, there is consistency.  This administration ignores what it chooses in order to achieve its goals.  It then ensures that any inaction by their choice is not countered by any action from a State. (Suing AZ)

The Constitution is twisted to meet their needs in one instance, sighting that States cannot enforce federal law, yet no one points to the oath of office taken by both Obama and Holder to enforce the laws of the nation and uphold the Constitution.

As Madison said in Federalist 45,

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”

Additionally, the Tenth Amendment states,

“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Yes, there are 50 stars on that flag, not 57 and not just one big one.  And as Speaker Boehner threatens to sue the President, and the President gleefully awaits his resultant “victim status” that all liberals seek, more stringent legal procedures seem required.  Fundamental transformation indeed.

Oath Keepers from Across the Country Pour into Nevada


The Daily Sheeple

Despite the fact that Senator Harry Reid has called these Patriots “domestic terrorists”, the militia members and Oath Keepers there to support Cliven Bundy have peacefully assembled in Bunkerville, Nevada for more than a week to protect the rancher from armed federal land grabbers. Although the BLM has allegedly backed off citing “safety concerns,” the surly Senator Reid (who has incidentally been busted with his hand in the $5 million solar power cookie jar) commented, “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”

Because of statements like Reid’s, a request was made by Oath Keeper’s founder Stewart Rhodes for reinforcements.

Interestingly, shortly after the request for support was made, the Oath Keepers website suffered a mysterious malfunction. Members of the alternative media quickly picked up the reins and made certain that the request was publicized.

In response, Oath Keepers from as far away as Alaska are answering the call put out by founder Stewart Rhodes.

Below is the latest audio update from Stewart in Bunkerville, Nevada.

CT Police Refusing To Enforce New Anti-Gun Law


Weasel Zippers

Via The Examiner:

A showdown is developing between a sizable number of Connecticut state police officers and the politicians who passed into law highly restrictive gun control, gun bans, and bans on high capacity magazines.

Gun rights legal expert and activist David Hardy reported Friday that 250 law enforcement officers in Connecticut have signed an open letter stating that they will not enforce the new anti-gun and magazine laws, which they consider to be a violation of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

A major news story on these developments is due to be published soon, but Hardy received an advanced notice via email from Tyler Jackson, the head of the Connecticut Peace Officers Association, the organization that sent the open letter.
