More "Assault Weapons" Nonsense

# Elias Alias - The Constitution: A Sovereign's Tool for Self-defense? - this was posted to lrtdiscuss. I liked it so much that I got permission to post it.

Just as I have no purpose in depriving those caught up in the sleep-states of obedience to past dictates such as the laws of Moses or contemporary organized religion, I also have no truck with tearing down forcefully those comfortable dream-states in which most Americans today toil and suffer under Statist abuses. Like Iloilo noted, and others here also have said it: I did not sign the damned document [Constitution], and I do not hold myself to be a captive slave to it. I and I alone decide my every deed, my every action, my every thought, motive, mood, and aspiration. I do not require some goddamned government to assist me in living my life or seeing reality. (Good thing, that, for were it left up to government to discern truth, this world would have long ago blown itself up! lol!)


Yet I avidly preach to people today the dire importance of uniting in defense of the Constitution, even though I'm like Iloilo one-hundred percent in knowing that no piece of "legal" paper means doodly-squat to me or my life. Why do I urge my neighbors to defend and honor the Constitution? Because under the current New World Order's global government, which is none other than the Empire of Amerika, Inc., the first obvious defense free people have is their power to demand of their representative bureaucrats that they follow the letter of the law in government's founding legal document. THAT is why our Federal-level politicians now are trashing the document. People seeking to establish global governance in the name of America have every intention of enslaving the American people right alongside those folks of every other nation on earth. That is the object of globalism. The Constitution of the United States of America is the last bulwark standing against their realization of their goal...

# James W. Crawley at The San Diego Union-Tribune - Ex-officer alleges cover-up in probe of spy ship attack - Ward Boston speaks up 37 years after the fact saying that Israel intentionally attacked the USS Liberty. He is, of course, being labelled an anti-semite for accusing Israel of any sort of wrong-doing. [whatreallyhappened]

Last October, Boston broke decades of silence and declared that the Navy admiral who investigated the incident had been ordered by President Lyndon Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara to conclude it was a case of mistaken identity, despite evidence to the contrary.

# AP via CNN - Big fines for banned items at airports: Bad attitude could raise fines - taking your scissors away is no longer good enough. Now the t.s.a. is also gonna fine you. Guess their budget wasn't big enough, eh? [smith2004]

Anyone trying to sneak a knife onto an airplane could be fined $250 and a passenger with an explosive could get as much as $10,000 under new guidelines.

# Washington Post Editorial - A Roll Call on Weapons BugMeNot - more "assault weapons" nonsense. I sent the following letter to the editor:

Subject: Letter to the editor
Date: Thu, 19 Feb 2004 19:04:01 -0500

The Post's February 19 editorial called for a new Maryland ban and the renewal of the federal ban on certain semi-automatic rifles with military-appearing features. These rifles are often erroneously called "assault rifles". I call mine my homeland defense rifle.

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution has nothing whatsoever to do with sport or hunting. We the people retain the right to keep and bear arms, modern military arms, to ensure that we are prepared at all times to defend ourselves, our families, and our communities against all threats, foreign and domestic.

The rights protected by the Constitution are not subject to majority opinion. "Shall not be infringed" means exactly that. No law may make it even marginally more difficult for a law-abiding person to obtain, own, or carry the defensive tool of his or her choice, always and everywhere. That such victim disarmament laws exist, that our legislators can make them and our police can enforce them without fear of immediate and permanent consequence, proves that American liberty is near death.
