7th Circuit Court rules: Illegal immigrants have Second Amendment rights

Stop illegal immigration

In August 2013, Mariano Meza-Rodriguez, a citizen of Mexico, was arrested for carrying a .22 caliber cartridge. Because he had no documentation to prove he was legally allowed to be in the U.S.; he was found to be in violation of U.S. law pertaining to illegals possessing firearms.

The specific law he broke, in this instance, was 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(5) that states:

NY deputies seize Navy vet and retired, decorated cop’s firearms

Undoubtedly, there are some who still cling to the idea that guns can’t be confiscated in America. Gun confiscation can and is happening in our nation. Listen people, the anti-gunners are working overtime to take away your Second Amendment rights.

If the headline of this article doesn’t convince you, then perhaps nothing will. There is a war on to take away your Contsitutional rights. The right to bear arms is something that our founding fathers established upon our nation’s framing. However, we have to stand up for our rights or watch them continue to evaporate.

Snoop DoggCalifornia is serious about gun control. So serious that despite already boasting some of the most rigid gun laws in the country, the Golden State is now considering even stricter legislation. The New York Times reports that “state lawmakers are championing legislation that would permit law enforcement officials and private individuals to seek a restraining order from a judge that would keep people with a potential propensity for violence from buying or owning a gun.”

The legislation, known as a gun violence restraining order, would allow people to notify courts or law enforcement officials if they are concerned that a family member or friend is at risk of committing violence.

Help or hurt? Chipotle’s open carry incident leads to interesting poll

This doesn't alarm people nearly as much as someone carrying a rifle into a restaurant.

This doesn’t alarm people nearly as much as someone carrying a rifle into a restaurant.

The controversial open carry incident involving semi-automatic rifles in a Dallas, Tex. restaurant that led the restaurant chain ask people to not bring guns to their establishments is now garnering overwhelmingly negative reactions from gun-owning readers of a popular gun rights blog.

An unscientific poll started by the Guns Save Lives (GSL) shows nearly 85 percent of the respondents think carrying rifles into a restaurant is going to hurt the gun rights movement. Less than ten percent of the respondents think it will help, and between five and six percent aren’t sure.

Compounding the potential for a backlash was the image of two rifle-toting guys inside that restaurant. The image has gone viral, and is being used as an example of bad behavior by open carry advocates. Continue reading

Former Justice Stevens wants to change the Second Amendment

Former Justice John Paul Stevens would like to change the Second Amendment.

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens thinks the Second Amendment should be changed and he says so in the pages of his new book, an excerpt of which was published by the Washington Post, igniting a new debate about gun rights.

Justice Stevens would like to add five words to the amendment: “when serving in the militia,” right after “shall not be infringed.”

It is almost as though the retired jurist is contending that, because he did not care for the 5-4 ruling in the Heller case that affirmed the Second Amendment protects an individual right to have a firearm, he now wants to change the constitution. Continue reading

Deadly force debate erupts anew after jury acquittal in car theft shooting

IMG_2559_1

Renewed focus on using deadly force to stop property crimes is one result of the Spokane verdict that acquitted a man on manslaughter charges for killing a suspected car thief.

When a Spokane, Wash., jury acquitted a local man of manslaughter charges for the March 2013 shooting death of a man who was trying to seal his SUV, it provided new fuel for a long-burning debate over the use of lethal force to protect property.

Gail Gerlach is a free man today after the 11-woman, one-man  jury deliberated for only a few hours, and then deciding separately that he was justified in his actions, thus setting the stage for state reimbursement of his legal defense bills, which could come to an estimated $300,000.

The family of the dead man, 25-year-old Brendon Kaluza-Graham, was distraught over the verdict, and his grandmother told reporters that her grandson was “a sacrificial lamb.” Continue reading
