Sunday Morning, Musing

April 30th, 2017 . by Cary

Apparently the dogs don’t care about Sunday morning either.

In most cases of gun laws, however, there is usually not a majority of people clamoring for the law. THere is usually a very vocal minority (Moms Demand Action, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the State of New York, the State of California, the City of Chicago, the City of Baltimore) which gets listened to and suddenly no one is “allowed” to own firearms. The Second Amendment is very clear in this regard:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

In order for a government to pass a law, they must first have jurisdiction over the area to be regulated. Assuming this authority without actual jurisdiction is called infringement.

verb (used with object), infringed, infringing.
1. to commit a breach or infraction of; violate or transgress: to infringe a copyright; to infringe a rule.
verb (used without object), infringed, infringing.
2. to encroach or trespass (usually followed by on or upon): Don’t infringe on his privacy.

Once the law is passed, without the consent of the governed, it is very difficult to repeal the law. It becomes a normal part of everyday living. Passing a new law to override the old law is still assuming authority in the area of question.

The solution is to repeal the restrictive law. Do not pass new laws covering this topic, simply repeal the old. Once repeal is complete, then there is no legal standing for the action of prosecution for the formerly illegal activity. A new paradigm must be instilled, in that the enforcers of the law cannot continue to enforce the law which is no longer there; and must, from that point forward, reset their thinking to the point of not having jurisdiction in that area. IN other words, not only stop enforcing anti-gun laws, but stop thinking they CAN be anti-gun without a legal basis for such thinking.

Now, for Baltimore: the reason you have so many murders is because you have made it impossible for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves. The criminals don’t care about laws, that’s why they are criminals. If the citizens had a means of defense, and the criminals were aware of that, the murder rates would be much lower – more in line with the rest of the nation (with the exception of those ares with restrictive gun laws, where the murder rates are higher than those areas without restrictive gun laws). In other words, let the citizens be armed, even the odds, and watch the murder rates drop along with the recidivism. Statistics show that criminals who are fatally shot in the commission of a crime have a much lower repeat offense rate.

I Want It Both Ways

August 13th, 2015 . by Cary

I know, it’s been a while. So sue me.

Wait, I was just kidding.

Let’s look at today’s serving of “It’s The Law Except When It’s Not”, shall we? First, take a read over at Chicks On The Right.

The weepy left wants the laws to be not applied when someone is complying with said law. Michigan’s laws are such that a person who is licensed to carry concealed is allowed to carry a weapon on school campuses, even if the campus is posted as “Gun Free”. The dad successfully got the court to rule that he didn’t have to carry concealed, just as long as he is licensed to do so. The left doesn’t like this, and wants to send the school into a paroxysm of fear and lock down anytime a weapon is sighted. The left doesn’t want to follow the judge’s decision.

Unless, of course, it benefits them. Then you have to follow the judge’s decision.

Second entry today comes from the Washington Post.

Here we have a County Clerk in Kentucky who, instead of being forced to issue same-sex marriage licenses, stopped issuing licenses completely, straight or gay. A gay couple, instead of getting a state license from a different county, insists (read: made their feet go stompy and held their breath) they should be able to get a license form the county where they reside. The judge who heard the case decided that, indeed, you have to do what judges say, no matter what you personally feel. This is in violation of the Clerk’s First Amendment right.

To recap: You MUST do what judges rule to be correct, regardless of your personal feelings, unless the judge ruled against a closely held belief of the Left.

Troubling Red Friday

I was just sitting at my computer at work, and during my break I happened to open up Facebook. Wonderful tool, Facebook. Lets you know the minutia in everyone’s lives. Well, everyone with an internet connection and a Facebook account, anyway.

I ran across a story that had me doing several things at once: Laughing out loud (coworkers think I’ve lost it), crying in frustration, shaking my head in wonderment, and mourning the death of Common Sense. Yes, you’ve seen the meme that says CS died a while ago, but this confirms it:

“It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,’” Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

Nolan stressed that she is very concerned with “safety and security” and concerned that, somehow, someone could wrongly interpret an image of a gun emblazoned with the universal sign for prohibiting something.

“I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” Nolan also fretted.

She said she would prefer “something more subtle.”

“You can’t look at this (sticker) and not think about Sandy Hook,” the principal added.

You can read the article for yourself here.

First off, let me assure you I am very much a supporter of Gun Control. Use two hands if you need to, but be in control of your gun at all times. Second, people SHOULD be reminded of Sandy Hook every day – and Aurora, and Columbine, and the Maryland Mall – all places where guns are prohibited, unless you are going to kill lots of people, then you can bring your guns to these target-rich environments where NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.

We, as a country, have decided that the best way to keep our children safe and educated is to isolate them on open campuses with no weapons allowed.

This is stupid.

Let me also assure you that when my family is near me, they are protected.


You may interpret that any way you want to.

And yes, I am very pissed about the Progressive’s constant attack on the Second Amendment.
