Second Amendment Congressional Watch


Some good news

Some good news.

SB 1294, which would void (in Arizona) any federal law that violates the Second Amendment, passed out of the Senate Rules Committee on February 24. Next stop is the Senate COW.

H. R. 4091

While on the surface this is not gun related, it certainly could have an impact on gun rights.

While I don’t think this will go anywhere, this along with other bills now in committee gives a sense of what the feelings are in both chambers of Congress. Even the Democrats are either getting fed up with our Criminal in Chief, or worried about their seats in the mid terms, or both.

H.R. 4091: Constitutional Check and Balance Act

Contributing to the cause

At one point or another, we have all receive requests from some gun rights advocates group for a donation to help fight the cause. Well, money is tight right now, but I think I have found a way for SOME of these groups to gain a fair amount of money from just one donation.

The above picture is (1) one Troy ounce of pure silver.  Not much in value, but considering the stamping in the picture, one might really want to have one.

So, here is my proposal. I’ve acquired a fair number of these coins in dealing in precious metals and currencies.

I’ve got 5 (with 10 more on the way) and  will donate 1 (to each of the organizations) of these coins to any REAL pro gun organization who proves worthy. The coin is my contribution. Now it’s going to be up to that organization to RAFFLE that coin and turn my contribution into hundreds and maybe thousands dollars.

The way this is going to work is that the Organization will need to contact me personally to set it up if they are interested. I’m in the middle of contacting AZCDL and SAF/Alan Gotlieb.

Demanding Moms ‘go postal’ on Rand Paul amendment to USPS bill

"Bloomberg Moms" simulate "going postal" while screaming angry demands.

Responding with trademark bristling shrillness and indignation over an amendment introduced by Sen. Rand Paul to S.1486, “Postal Reform Act of 2013,” that would overturn restrictions on lawful carrying of firearms into United States Postal Service post offices, Moms Demand Action protested Wednesday with an online social media campaign that managed to not only perpetuate an undeserved myth, but to insult all postal workers and law-abiding gun owners in the bargain.


Surgeon General nominee’s vow to refrain from anti-gun agenda likely big fat lie

Attempts to deprive this right are hazardous to the perpetrators' health

As the hard-charging, no compromise gun rights advocacy group Gun Owners of America warned members Tuesday, the Senate is considering President Obama’s nomination of the rabidly anti-gun Dr. Vivek Murthy as the next Surgeon General of the United States:


U.S. Postal Service Announces Giant Ammo Purchase

The U.S. Postal Service joins the long list of non-military federal agencies purchasing large amounts of ammunition.

On Jan. 31, the USPS Supplies and Services Purchasing Office posted a notice on the Federal Business Opportunities website asking contractors to register with USPS as potential ammunition suppliers for a variety of cartridges.


MO 2nd Amnd Preservation Act decried by man who wants Constitution ‘superseded’

St. Louis gun control rally--turn over rights to UN

In a five-to-one vote on January 28, the Missouri Senate General Laws Committee approved Missouri Senate Bill 613, the “Second Amendment Preservation Act.” Like HB 1439, the House version covered here in January, SB 613‘s most prominent provision invalidates federal laws that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms (which would presumably be every federal gun law), and subjects those enforcing such laws in Missouri to fines and up to a year imprisonment.


Texas open carry group seeks spotlight on harassment of veterans and gun owners

Gun rights supporters in Texas protest harassment for exercising their rights.

“Recently we’ve unearthed some sickening corruption in a nearby town and it’s led to unlawful arrests and gun confiscations from two veterans that are also Oath Keepers,” a Friday Facebook message from James Franklin, Regional Director for Come and Take It Texas – West Texas Region, began. “Over the past week this issue has gotten even more complicated as the police in the town refuse to file police reports about one of their residents making terroristic threats against our…..


Even compliance with Connecticut ‘assault weapon’ ban not enough for gun-haters

The more guns the government makes illegal, the more illegal guns the people will make

The anti-gun jihadists of the Connecticut government, who boast that the state’s ban of so-called “assault weapons” (recently upheld as “Constitutional” by a federal judge despite his admission that the banned firearms and magazines are “in common use,” and thus deserving Second Amendment protection even under the narrowly written Heller decision) is now the most draconian in the nation, are not satisfied with mere compliance with every  detail of the law.


‘Mom’s’ group has fit over rumored Post Office CCW amendment

Anti-gunner Shannon Watts is sounding the alarm about a rumored proposal to come from Rand Paul that would allow people to carry guns into post offices.

The anti-rights Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America (MDA) is having fits today over a rumored proposal that may be coming from Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul that would, if adopted, allow licensed private citizens to carry their defensive handguns into post offices.
