In Obama’s America, flying the Stars and Stripes is an inappropriate display of affection for one’s country.
According to liberal thought, all who hail from the greatest nation on earth should hang their head in shame for all of the “evil” perpetrated by America and as a result should apologize profusely to anyone from a foreign country, just like our wonderful Commander-in-Chief who made his “apology tour” early on in his term.
Unfortunately for progressives, that’s not how it works here, regardless of how many attempts they make at forcing people to take down their flags, which is something that seems to be common place as of late.
Take for example an Islamic landlord in Texas who tried to force her tenant to take down his flag, saying it was a “threat to Muslims.”
According to Mad World News, a similar situation has popped up in Ohio, as 86-year-old Julia Lease received a note from her landlord asking her to take her flag down from her front porch.
“Please remove flag from your front porch. Thank you!”
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today won a significant court victory in California in which the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California ruled that the Golden State’s 10-day waiting period violates the Second Amendment “as applied to those individuals who successfully pass” the state’s background check prior to the ten days, and who are in lawful possession of an additional firearm.
The ruling, by Senior Judge Anthony W. Ishii, a Bill Clinton appointee, also notes that the 10-day waiting period violates the Second Amendment for those individuals who pass the background check and who possess a valid CCW license. Joining SAF in the case was the Calguns Foundation and individual plaintiffs Brandon Combs and Jeff Silvester, for whom the case is named.
This is the same group that just got DC’s gun carry ban declared unconstitutional.
Via Fox News:
A Washington state-based gun rights group is steadily persuading cities and towns across the country to repeal local firearms regulations and give that power back to the states.
The organization, the Second Amendment Foundation, is working to invalidate city ordinances by arguing that they’re in conflict with looser state regulations. So far, it seems to be working. The group says it’s been able to overturn more than 100 gun-related ordinances this way, most recently in Utah.
“We’re going state by state, going through every single ordinance of every city and county in every state and finding where the cities and counties have ordinances enacted that are in conflict with state law,” Alan Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the SAF, told FoxNews.com.
Usually this means repealing local ordinances that run afoul of state law which, in turn, gives almost all gun-regulating power to the state. These cities and local communities still have the authority to outlaw someone shooting a gun but not necessarily possessing or carrying them.
“It’s pretty clever,” Florida State University College of Law Professor Franita Tolson told FoxNews.com. “If you can’t change it on a federal level, you attack it on a local level.”
So far, Gottlieb’s group has helped overturn gun rules in nine states, including Illinois, California, North Carolina, New Mexico and Nevada. SAF’s Legal Preemption Project latest target is Utah.
The Daily Sheeple
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a national gun control organization backed by former New York
Nanny Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has made Kroger its latest gun control campaign target.
The group is attempting to pressure the grocery store chain to ban the open carry of firearms in all of its stores via the circulation of an online petition and social media posts.
In the past, MDA has claimed to have successfully persuaded Starbucks, Chili’s, Target, and Chipotle to ban guns, but all each of those companies did was announce that “guns are not welcome” in their stores.
In response to the group’s request, Kroger’s company spokesman Keith Dailey said the grocery chain had no plans to change existing policy. He said they will continue to abide state and local laws:
“Millions of customers are present in our busy grocery stores every day and we don’t want to put our associates in a position of having to confront a customer who is legally carrying a gun. We know that our customers are passionate on both sides of this issue and we trust them to be responsible in our stores.”

When liberals have the opportunity to restrict individual liberty, they take it. One of the most important freedoms they go after is the Second Amendment right of all Americans to keep and bear arms, because it’s a lot easier to deprive people of their rights when they can’t fight back.
Constitutional conservatives are pushing back, however, against Democratic efforts to “rein in” gun rights with a national campaign, led by Chuck Norris, to elect gun supporters this November.
Missouri’s Constitutional Amendment 5 passed yesterday with 62% of the vote and 3712 of 3898 precincts reported. It’s a clear statement of support for the right to keep and bear arms, clarifying that it’s a fundamental right; that it protects ammunition and accessories as well as firearms, and that the state is obligated to protect that right. The amendment could lead to the Show Me State becoming a constitutional carry (no permit or license required to keep or bear arms) state like Vermont and Arizona . . .
