“Today begins the most important 26-day period for our Second Amendment freedoms in recent history.

That’s because today, representatives from many of the world’s socialist, tyrannical and dictatorial regimes will gather at United Nations headquarters in New York for a month-long meeting, in which they’ll put the finishing touches on an international Arms Trade Treaty that could seriously restrict your freedom to own, purchase and carry a firearm.

Specifically, the U.N. wants to implement international gun registration requirements, bans on commonly owned firearms, tracking and registration of ammunition purchases, and create a new U.N. gun control bureaucracy.

You might think that something so obviously menacing to one of our enumerated fundamental rights would receive a strong rebuke from our top government leaders. But you’d be wrong. This is President Barack Obama’s vision for America, and we’re expected to just go along with it.

In fact, a group of anti-gun members of the U.S. House of Representatives, led by U.S. Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), went so far as to circulate a letter last week to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, in which they “strongly urge the United States to take a leadership role in pushing for a strong, verifiable Arms Trade Treaty.”

These House members insist that the treaty include “controls on a comprehensive list of weaponry, including small arms and light weapons,” as well as controls on ammunition. For good measure, they wrap their unconstitutional demands in the mantle of advancing “human rights” and preventing international violence.

Since when did it become fashionable for sitting members of Congress to lobby international thugs, tyrants and dictators against our own U.S. Constitution?

Rep. Grijalva should consider the plight of good people in countries like the Sudan, where it’s virtually impossible for an average citizen to legally own a firearm for self-defense.

He, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton should open their eyes to the unspeakable human rights atrocities that exist in their gun-ban utopia. They ought to see how far their gun-confiscation agenda resonates with hundreds of thousands of defenseless Sudanese men, women and children who live in constant fear of being beaten, raped, sold into slavery or murdered.

It’s easy for Congressmen Raul Grijalva, James McGovern, Bobby Rush, Dennis Kucinich and every other signer of this woefully ignorant letter to sit on high — surrounded by the secure walls of freedom built by our strong Second Amendment rights — and dictate to oppressed citizens in other parts of the world that their lives would be better if they only had less freedom than we do in the United States.

Thankfully, these clueless representatives don’t speak for the majority of us. The NRA has been warning Americans about this ticking time bomb at the U.N. for over 15 years. Now it’s zero hour. Wayne LaPierre and I will be at U.N. headquarters in New York this week, fighting tooth and nail to protect the same constitution that Raul Grijalva and his pals swore an oath to uphold and defend.

And I can promise you, we won’t stop fighting until our Second Amendment freedoms are safe from this international disgrace.

When are people going to wake up and realize that something big is expected to happen? Things are NOT okay. We are at a pivotal point in history. The world powers across the globe are making similar changes, accelerating the implementation of the same policies, embracing new treaties and reaffirming commitment to existing treaties and global initiatives. Across the world, governments are stressing preparedness, and taking extreme, seemingly unnecessary precautions and defense measures in the name of safety and the supposed increased risk for disasters(pdf).

Destroying American Farming Traditions; Law Would Prevent Children From Doing Farm Chores

26 Apr

Bill to Block Overreaching Department of Labor Farm Rule


It’s not enough to throw people in jail for selling raw milk or fined for growing food in their own garden,  or under threat of arrest, force people to execute their pigs because they don’t have curly tails or have the wrong color of fur, now they are trying to (fundamentally?) change the farming lifestyle.   Hey government, PLEASE STOP TRYING TO PROTECT US WHEN WE HAVEN’T ASKED FOR ANY PROTECTION.  The Constitution does not guarantee, nor require, the government to keep us safe from every hazard in life.

“Last year, DOL Secretary Hilda Solis proposed rules that would restrict family farm operations by prohibiting youth under the age of 18 from being NEAR CERTAIN ANIMALS without adult supervision, participating in common livestock practices such as VACCINATING AND HOOF TRIMMING, and HANDLING MOST ANIMALS more than six months old, which would severely LIMIT PARTICIPATION in 4-H and FFA activities and restrict their youth farm safety classes; operating farm machinery over 20 PTO horsepower; completing tasks at ELEVATIONS OVER SIX FEET HIGH; and working at stockyards and grain and feed facilities.  The language of the proposed rule is so specific it would even ban youth from operating a BATTERY POWERED SCREWDRIVER or a PRESSURIZED GARDEN HOSE.”

“If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.” – Thomas Jefferson

The following freedom-killing rules have been made JUST to keep us helpless folk safe, even though we have somehow managed to survive all these years:

* Arrests and strip searches for non-criminal offenses, like not having a dog on a leash.

* Molestation and irradiation before flying  (Search: TSA)

* Unannounced check points, molestation and illegal searches by TSA on highways, at bus stops, train stations, ferry terminals, high school proms and football games .

* TSA both in uniform and in plain clothes, on buses conducting illegal, unconstitutional bag checks, even though they are not trained or under any oath.

* Not allowing bake sales to protect us from becoming obese or keep us from being poisoned.

* Giving large fines for lemonade stands for fear of food contamination (Yea, I remember all those times I NEVER got sick or made anyone else sick from lemonade sold at lemonade stands. And I remember all the kids who NEVER got sick, let alone died, from bake sale food poisoning.)

(Although not related to safety, let’s take a moment to remember some other ridiculous overreaches by the government into American traditions, like the Girl Scouts banned from selling cookies on their own property  and others  banned from selling cookies on the sidewalk.)
Now we’re presented with these ridiculous child labor laws keeping kids from doing what their families have done for generations.

What else will we ban to protect minors?  Riding on mopeds, four wheelers, modified lawn mowers, go carts, bicycles?  Driving cars?  When will it stop?

“After having thus successively taken each member of the community in its powerful grasp and fashioned him at will, the supreme power then extends its arm over the whole community. It covers the surface of society with a network of small, complicated rules, minute and uniform, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate, to rise above the crowd. The will of man is not shattered, but softened, bent, and guided; men seldom forced by it to act, but they are constantly restrained from acting. Such a power does not destroy, but it prevents existence; it does not tyrannize, but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”
- Alexis de Tocqueville

“Do we desire to be cradled, and then carried throughout life to our graves by this partisan propelled bureaucratic monstrosity? …as individuals of sovereign dignity, are we now so terrified, bewildered, and impotent that our main purpose is to seek asylum from the potential hazards of freedom? Have we no faith in our natural strengths and abilities?”
- Sergei Hoff

“To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint.  They are eager to barter their independence for relief from the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility.”
-Eric Hoffer

“I know no safe depository of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves, (A)nd if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.”
- Thomas Jefferson
