I didn’t wish to interject my own opinions in this column; it speaks for itself – Given that the Regime has prepared for us “not taking anymore”, that their FEMA camps are real, and (you know who) has purchased an incredible amount of ammo, depleting the supply, critical mass is very near.  X

U.S. will reach 400 Million Private Firearms by end of Obama Presidency

via Free Republic

The National Instant Check System (NICS)  performs a check when people buy firearms from federally licensed dealers in the United States.  It is also used to perform background checks on people applying for firearm carry permits in those states where such permits are required or offered by law.  As there are now over 15 million carry permits in the United States, and firearm sales numbers are in the 10 to 20 million range per year, you can see that the number of NICS checks is not a perfect fit for the number of firearms sold.

One of the reasons for this is that one check can be used to purchase multiple firearms, and most people with carry permits are not required to have an instant check performed when they purchase a firearm.  They had it done when they obtained their permit.

We have a good measure of how many additional firearms are added to the U.S. private stock each year.  That number is compiled by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF).  The ATF tracks licensed firearm manufacture, import, and export numbers.  Those numbers are assembled each year.  ATF takes about 18 months to process the numbers and publish them.  We do not have data on how many used firearms are sold by dealers.  Presumably, they fall into the 40% of NICS checks that are done in excess of the new firearms added.

You can compare the ATF increase in the private firearms stock with the NICS checks done for that year.   The correlation is very high, with r= .9776.  1.0 would be a perfect fit.  At that correlation level, I have confidence in predicting the increase in private firearms from the NICS numbers.

Over the fifteen years that have been recorded, there have been 1.685 NICS checks for each additional firearm added to the private stock in the United States.  Multiplying the NICS check numbers (provided monthly by the FBI) by .5934 gives us a good approximation of the firearms added.

At the end of 2013, the private firearm stock in the United States is estimated at 363.3 million firearms.  16 million were added in 2013.   According the the FBI figures, the NICS checks for 2014 were 20.969 million.  That would be another 12.44 million firearms added in 2014.

In the first seven months of 2015, there were an additional 12.067 million NICS checks.  Another 7.16 million firearms were added.  Continuing that rate for the whole year would bring the total to 12.277 million added in 2015.

At the end of 2015, the stock should be at 388+ million firearms.  Given the current trend, another 12 million or more firearms will be added in 2016, bringing the total stock to 400 million+ firearms by the end of the Obama presidency.

At the end of 2008 and the beginning of the Obama presidency, there were about 308 million private firearms in the United States.   After eight years of President Obama in the highest executive position, I predict that there will be over 400 million.

If the trend for 2013 only is applied to 2014 and 2015  (based on the NICS numbers they are very similar), the 400 million mark will be reached by the end of May, 2016, and by the end of the year, there will be about 409 million private firearms in the United states.

That is a net gain of between 92 million and 101 million firearms in eight years, making President Obama the greatest firearm salesman of all time.

I am no fan of Donald Trump!

That being said that’s one mans opinion, while it obvious Mr. Trump has millions of solid fans.

Wayne Allen Root was a classmate at Columbia University with Obama.

Mr. Root believes that what will eventually come out about Obama will be traced to its roots and scandals at Columbia.

       Every middle class American might want to read the article by Wayne Allen Root on Donald Trump.

13706315.571692Wayne Allyn Root on Donald Trump

Actually, no matter what everyone thinks about Donald Trump, the writer of this article, Wayne Allyn Root is a respected journalist and was once a candidate for office of President with the Libertarian Party. 

Root does have the correct take on the dismal state of the American political system, which is totally corrupt.

It is worth your time to read this very interesting article. This is well written and gives ‘Middle Class Americans’ something  to think about!!
 

Some people are getting very nervous, including Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few. 

And I know why.

I wrote a book titled “The Murder of the Middle Class” about the unholy conspiracy between big government, big business and big media. 

They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. 

It’s one for all and all for one. It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich — everyone except the American people.  We get ripped off.  We’re the patsies.
 
But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. 

I’ve never seen them this outraged, this vicious, this motivated or this coordinated. 

Never in all my years in politics have I seen anything like the way the mad dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.

When white supremacist David Dukes ran for governor of Louisiana , even he wasn’t treated with this kind of outrage, vitriol and disrespect. 

When a known fraud, scam artist, and tax cheat like Al Sharpton ran for president, I never saw anything remotely close to this. 

See entire alleged scandal below.

The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened like never before.

Why?  Duke was never going to win. 

Sharpton was never going to win.  Ron Paul was never going to win.  Ross Perot was never going to win as a third-party candidate. 

Those candidates either didn’t have or couldn’t spare the billion dollars it takes to win the presidency. 

But Donald Trump can self-fund that amount tomorrow and still have another billion left over to pour into the last two-week stretch run before Election Day.

No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business and political elite understand that Trump is no joke.  He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.

It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. 

No, this is a coordinated conspiracy led by President Barack Obama himself.

Obama himself is making the phone calls and giving the orders; he’s the ultimate intimidator who plays by the rules of Chicago thug politics.

Why is this so important to Obama?

It’s because most of the other politicians are part of the “old boys club.”

They talk big, but in the end they won’t change a thing. Why?

They are all beholden to big-money donors.

They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations and multinational corporations like Big Pharma or Big Oil.

Or they are owned lock, stock and barrel by foreigners like  George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary with their Clinton Foundation donations.

These run-of-the-mill establishment politicians are all puppets owned by big  money.  But there’s one man — and only one man — who isn’t beholden to anyone.  There’s one man who doesn’t need foreigners, or foreign governments, or George Soros, or the United Auto Workers, or the teachers union, or the Service Employees International Union, or the bar association to fund his campaign.

Billionaire tycoon and maverick Donald Trump doesn’t need anyone’s help. That means he doesn’t care what the media says.  He doesn’t care what the corporate elites think.  That makes him very dangerous to the entrenched interests.  That makes Trump a huge threat.  Trump can ruin everything for the bribed politicians and their spoiled slave masters.

Don’t you ever wonder why the GOP has never tried to impeach Obama?  Don’t you wonder why John Boehner and Mitch McConnell talk a big game, but never actually try to stop Obama?  Don’t you wonder why Congress holds the purse strings, yet has never tried to defund Obamacare or Obama’s clearly illegal executive action on amnesty for illegal aliens?  Bizarre, right?  It defies logic, right?

Well, first, I’d guess many key Republicans are being bribed.  Secondly, I believe many key Republicans are being blackmailed.  Whether they are having affairs, or secretly gay, or stealing taxpayer money, the National Security Agency knows everything.

Ask former House Speaker Dennis Hastert about that.  The government even knew he was withdrawing large sums of his own money from his own bank account.  Trust me: The NSA, the SEC, the IRS and all the other three-letter government agencies are watching every Republican political leader.  They know everything.

Thirdly, many Republicans are petrified of being called “racists.”  So they are scared to ever criticize Obama or call out his crimes, let alone demand his impeachment.
Fourth, why rock the boat?  After defeat or retirement, if you’re a “good boy,” you’ve got a $5 million-per-year lobbying job waiting.  The big-money interests have the system gamed.  Win or lose, they win.

But Trump doesn’t play by any of these rules.  Trump breaks up this nice, cozy relationship between big government, big media and big business.  All the rules are out the window if Trump wins the presidency.  The other politicians will protect Obama and his aides — but not Trump. Remember: Trump is the guy who publicly questioned Obama’s birth certificate.  He questioned Obama’s college records and how a mediocre student got into an Ivy League university. Now, he’s doing something no Republican has the chutzpah to do.  He’s questioning our relationship with Mexico; questioning why the border is wide open; questioning why no wall has been built across the border; questioning if allowing millions of illegal aliens into America is in our best interests; questioning why so many illegal  aliens commit violent crimes yet are not deported; and questioning why our trade deals with Mexico, Russia and China are so bad.

Trump has the audacity to ask out loud why American workers always get the short end of the stick.  Good question.

I’m certain Trump will question what happened to the almost billion dollars given in a rigged no-bid contract to college friends of Michelle Obama at foreign companies to build the defective Obamacare website.  By the way, that tab is now up to $5 billion.

Trump will ask if Obamacare’s architects can be charged with fraud for selling it by lying.  He will ask if Obama himself committed fraud when he said, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.”

Trump will investigate Obama’s widespread IRS conspiracy, not to mention Obama’s college records.

Trump will prosecute Clinton and Obama for fraud committed to cover up Benghazi before the election.

How about the fraud committed by employees of the Labor Department when they made up dramatic job numbers in the last jobs report before the 2012 election?
Obama, the multinational corporations and the media need to stop this.  They  recognize this could get out of control.  If left unchecked telling the raw truth and asking questions everyone else is afraid to ask, Trump could wake a sleeping giant.

Trump’s election would be a nightmare.  Obama has committed many crimes.  No one else but Trump would dare to prosecute.  He will not hesitate.  Once Trump gets in and gets a look at “the cooked books” and Obama’s records, the game is over.  The gig is up.  The goose is cooked.

Holder could wind up in prison.  Jarrett could wind up in prison. Obama bundler Corzine could wind up in prison for losing $1.5 billion of customer money.

Clinton could wind up in jail for deleting 32,000 emails, or for accepting bribes from foreign governments while secretary of state, or for “misplacing” $6 billion as the head of the State Department, or for lying about Benghazi.

The entire upper level management of the IRS could wind up in prison.

Obamacare will be defunded and dismantled.

The Obama crime family will be prosecuted for crimes against the American people.

And Obama himself could wind up ruined, his legacy in tatters.

Trump will investigate.  Trump will prosecute.  Trump will go after everyone involved, just for fun.

That will all happen on Trump’s first day in the White House.

Who knows what Trump will do on Day 2?

That’s why the dogs of hell have been unleashed on Donald Trump.

  • Sanctuary Cities, USA: Additional Notes

  • Anchorage, AK

  • The Municipality of Anchorage sent OJJPAC a letter disputing the city’s listing postmarked July 29, 2010.  It claims that the Congressional Research Service’s listing of the city as a “sanctuary” was based on a Resolution adopted by its Assembly (AR 2003-223) in 2003.  The Municipal Attorney Dennis Wheeler says that that Resolution was rescinded on December 18, 2007.

  • Mesa, Arizona

  • Mesa Arizona has been added as a sanctuary city list because of its reported “don’t ask don’t tell policy” and criticism by the local sheriff that the city is not enforcing the law.  The sheriff has arrested illegal aliens working in city buildings (as contract workers for a private cleaning company), reportedly after the city police department refused to investigate complaints of illegal hires by a whistleblower.

  • Austin, MN Note:  The newspaper incorrectly refers to illegal aliens as “illegal immigrants.”  Aliens who illegally reside in the U.S. are not “immigrants,” a term that should only refer to aliens who legally “emigrated” to the United States.

  • Philadelphia, PA

  • Philadelphia’s Mayor signed an Executive Order in November 2009 that provided additional protections to illegal aliens in the city.  However, the City of Philadelphia does have an existing Preliminary Arraignment Reporting System (PARS) agreement with ICE.  Mayor Nutter objects to the  PARS computer technology agreement which is now up for renewal. The Mayor apparently believes that the access of data by ICE will result in increased immigration violation investigations and deportations.  Here is an article by the Philadelphia Inquirer.

  • Tucson, Arizona

  • Tucson Arizona has been added to the sanctuary city list because the Tucson police have instituted a new policy which prevents their officers from calling Immigration and Customs Enforcement to schools and churches.

  • Tulsa, Oklahoma

  • Tulsa city councilor Jim Mautino was quoted in a Tulsa World article by P.J. Lassek, that he believes Tulsa is a sanctuary city and that the Police don’t verify legal presense during traffic stops.  Mautino wants to crack down on illegal aliens and introduce an ordinance mandating the use of E-Verify because the resolution that was passed cannot be enforced.

  • State of Oregon

  • According to a CRS report (October, 2005), Oregon passed a law in 1987 that prohibits local and state law enforcement from using state resources for locating and capturing illegal aliens.  Law enforcement was permitted [but not required] to “exchange information” with federal immigration agents if an illegal alien was arrested for a crime.

  • San Bernardino, CA.

  • San Bernardino was added to the list on June 6th of 2007 as a result of a readers submission.  On September 5th 2008, the city administration contacted me to dispute its listing.  OJJPAC has asked the city’s law department to forward copies of the city’s policies regarding its processes when illegal aliens are encountered in its city.

  •  Bridgeton, NJ  7-27-07 Disputed by a reputed farm worker advocate who sent me this email:

“I just wanted to point out an inaccuracy on your website’s listing of sanctuary cities.  You have Bridgeton, NJ listed as a sanctuary city, and indeed it is most definitely not.  I work with CATA – The Farm workers’ Support committee (www.cata-farmworkers.org) and we have an organized group of membership in this town.  One of our goals is working towards making Bridgeton an sanctuary city, but the local government is quite unfriendly towards the immigrant population, and the mayor has even hinted at wanting to implement a Hazleton type of ordinance (luckily, given yesterday’s legal decision, that won’t be happening).”

Columbus, OH

The Columbus Dispatch [Ohio] wrote:  “The police didn’t contact immigration authorities concerning those who were determined to be undocumented, Booth       said. Authorities say that’s typical when it comes to misdemeanor charges.”  [Columbus, Ohio]

2-20-14 Mayor Michael Coleman issues a travel ban for city employees because the State of Arizona passed immigration law enforcement bill SB 1070.

Lorain, OH

            “Thanks to Cel (Celestino Rivera, Lorain’s Police Chief), we are less worried”  [about the US Border Patrol]said one interviewee who has a family member who is deportable.  Rivera does not report illegal aliens to immigration authorities.  Source: Ohio, the Other Border, By Maribel Hastings, Senior Adviser, America’s voice, 4-7-14.

Painesville, OH

Cleveland Scene (7-18-07) quotes the Painesville Police Chief Gary Smith:

***He [Police Chief Gary Smith] has no qualms about laying out his indifference in plain English: “We don’t care what your [immigration] status is.” ***

Oklahoma City, OK

One reader wrote about Oklahoma City:

Oklahoma City is a sanctuary city de facto.  Police officers have been told not to stop any Hispanic for minor traffic violations, because they have a good chance of being illegal and it is a waste of time.  The City has not been enforcing City Code if the recipient of the code violation doesn’t speak English.  And is not attempting to enforce the single-family dwelling laws.

State of Maine

Governor John E. Baldacci issued  executive order 13 FY 04/05 which was issued on April 9, 2004.  The order is entitled  “An Order Concerning Access to State Services by All Entitled Maine Residents.”  The order prohibits state workers from inquiring about the immigration status of anyone applying for services.

Alexandria, VA

Resolution No. 2246, adopted October 9, 2007 states in part:  “…the City and its various agencies will neither make inquirers about nor report on the citizenship of those who seek the protection of its laws or the use of its services.”   Evidently in Alexandria, illegal alien are safe from Immigration and Customs Enforcement until they commit a “serious” crime.  So what crimes can illegals commit with impunity from the federal government? Theft? Rape? Drug dealing? Gang activity?  OJJPAC’s belief is that the City’s Resolution conflict’s with its responsibility under federal law.

State of Vermont

Vermont Attorney General William Sorrell reportedly has asked police in Vermont to adopt a “don’t ask, don’t tell” approach to immigration status under the guise of “Bias-Free Policing.”  Police departments in Vermont will get a copy of the request but are not required to adopt the attorney general’s policy.

Let’s check in on how our government’s strategy against ISIS and al Qaeda is working:

Reports since yesterday indicate that a U.S.-trained Syrian rebel leader has deceived his American handlers and has defected to Jabhat al-Nusra — the official al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria.

This report comes just days after a senior U.S. military commander told Congress that only 4 to 5 U.S.-trained Syrian fighters are effectively engaged against ISIS as a result of a $500 million program pushed through by GOP congressional leadership a year ago. Since July 2014, I have repeatedly covered the frequent defections of “vetted moderate” Syrian rebel groups to al-Qaeda and ISIS here at PJ Media.

Late yesterday, the reports that Atareb rebel commander Anas Obaid had defected to Jabhat al-Nusra and turned over his weapons began to emerge…

Looks like everything is going according to plan. The most radical Islamic elements are…

Not all of the founding fathers suffered the losses these men did; but all were entirely dedicated to breaking free from tyranny.  The list of founders contained here, endured much after they signed under  “we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor”. 

Imagine their outrage if they knew what has become of our country…

Stockton

Richard Stockton

Born October 1, 1730  Died February 28, 1781

Stockton was appointed to committees supporting the war effort. He was dispatched on a fact finding tour to the northern army. New Jersey was overrun by the British in November of ’76, when he was returning from the mission. He managed to move his family to safety, but was captured and imprisoned by the British. He was not released until several years later, badly treated and in very poor condition. He was taken to Perth Amboy where he was jailed.

Stockton was then moved to Provost Prison in New York where he was intentionally starved and subjected to freezing cold weather. After nearly five weeks of abusivel treatment, Stockton was released on parole, his health was battered. He returned to his estate, Morven, in Princeton, which had been occupied by General Cornwallis during Stockton’s imprisonment. All his furniture, all household belongings, crops and livestock were taken or destroyed by the British. His library, one of the finest in the colonies, was burned.

Rutlidge

Edward Rutlidge

Born  November 23, 1749  Died  January 23, 1800

He took leave of Congress in November of 1776 to join the defense of his colony. He was a member of the Charleston Battalion of Artillery, engaged in several important battles, and attained the rank of Captain. The colonial legislature sent him back to Congress in 1779 to fill a vacancy. He took his leave again in 1780 when the British conducted a third invasion of South Carolina. He resumed his post as Captain in the defense of Charleston, was captured and held prisoner until July of 1781.

Morris

Robert Morris

Born  January 20, 1734  Died  May 9, 1806

 In late 1776, with the Continental Army in a state of severe deprivation because of a shortage of capital and the failure of several of the colonies in paying for the war, Morris loaned $10,000 of his own money to the government. This money provisioned the desperate troops, who went on to win the Battle of Trenton (Washington Crossing). Throughout the war he personally underwrote the operations of privateers, ships that ran the British Blockades at great risk and thus brought needed supplies and capital into the colonies.

In 1789, President George Washington appointed Morris Secretary of the Treasury, but he declined the office and suggested Alexander Hamilton instead. Morris completed his office as Senator and then retired from public service. He never recovered the wealth that he enjoyed before the revolution. What was left of his fortune was soon lost to land speculation in the western part of New York state. He died in 1806, in relative poverty, at the age of 73.

Morris

Lewis Morris

Born  April 8, 1726  Died  January 22, 1798

Morris joined with the patriots when conflict began, siding , in many cases, against his wealthy neighbors. He convinced local politicians to send representatives to the re-formed Legislature in April of 1775.

In 1777, he was succeeded in congress by his brother, Gouverneur Morris. He returned to his local duties, later served as a judge in Worcester, and served intermittently as a member of the upper house of the new legislature until 1790. All of the Morris property and nearly all of his wealth had been destroyed in the revolution.

Middleton

Arthur Middleton

Born  June 26, 1742  Died  January 1, 1787

He was elected to the Council of Safety at Charleston in 1775, and in 1776 was a delegate to the Continental Congress. He was captured by the British when Charleston was overrun 1781, and held prisoner for more than a year. Most of his fortune was destroyed during the Revolution. He was engaged in politics until his death on the first of January, 1787.

Lewis

Francis Lewis

Born March 1713  Died    December 31, 1802

He was taken prisoner and shipped to France while serving as a British mercantile agent in 1756. When he returned to America he became active in politics. He was elected to the Continental Congress in 1775, and served there for several years. He lost all of his property, on Long Island, New York, to the destruction of the Revolutionary war.

Hewes

Joseph Hewes

Born  January 23, 1730  Died  November 10, 1779

 He established a shipping business in Wilmington, North Carolina in 1760 and, by the time of the revolution, had amassed a fortune.

 He was appointed to the Committee of Correspondence, elected to the Provincial Legislature, and sent along to the Continental Congress in 1775. Hewes was known as a tireless worker in committee and the leading expert on maritime concerns. In 1776 he signed the Declaration of Independence and placed his ships at the service of the Continental Armed Forces. He served the Congress as the Secretary of the Naval Affairs Committee until 1779, when he fell ill.

Hart

John Hart

Born  1713  Died  May 11, 1779

In 1775 he was appointed to the local Committee of Safety, the Committee of Correspondence, and a judge to the Court of Common Pleas. He was elected to the newly formed Provincial Congress of New Jersey in 1776, and sent as a delegate for New Jersey to the Continental Congress that year. Hart’s property was looted in the course of the war. His Wife died on October 8, 1776. When the area was overrun by the British in November of that year, he was forced to hide for a time. He was engaged in public service throughout the war, twice reelected to the Congress and also serving the Commitee of Safety and as Speaker of the New Jersey assembly.

Hall

Lyman Hall

Born  April 12, 1724  Died  October 19, 1790

 In 1774, by this time partisan in revolutionary politics, he again came to Georgia and earned the unflattering attention of the Royal Governor, James Wright. He also secured election to the Continental Congress, where he was involved in provisioning food and medicine for the Revolutionary Armies. He was reelected to congress through 1780 but retired to his adopted state in 1777 when state matters, including the situation of his longtime friend Button Gwinnett, demanded his attention. A short time later, the war reached Savannah. Hall’s property was burned and he stood accused of high treason. He fled to Charleston, which was also overtaken by the British. He then fled to Connecticut, some say, where he was harbored by family.He returned to Georgia in 1782, to reclaim his lands, was elected to the House of Assembly in 1783 and then elevated to the office of the Governor.

Carter Braxton

Born  September 10, 1736  Died October 10, 1797

Was born of a wealthy family in Newington Plantation Virginia. He lost nearly all of his wealth in the course of the revolution, partly through his support of the Union, and partly through attack by the British forces.
In 1775, upon the sudden death of Peyton Randolph, Braxton was selected to assume his place in the Continental Congress. He attended two years, after which he returned to Virginia to continue service to the House of Burgesses. During the War, he had loaned £10,000 sterling to support the revolutionary cause. He had also used his wealth to sponsor shipping and privateering during the conflict, the losses from which eventually resulted in debt. He never recovered, and, in 1786, was forced to leave his inherited country estate for simple quarters in Richmond.

In an increasingly Orwellian world, we are being confronted with technologies that were unimaginable at the turn of the twentieth century.  At the time, there were folks who were arrogant enough to think that there were few, if any advances to be made.

The reality was, we went from the horse and buggy, to the dawn of the Jet age in a mere forty years, and eclipsed this by landing on the moon twenty-five years later.  Then, the invention of the integrated circuit started a quantum leap forward in many areas; from small appliances, stereo systems, and other domestic uses; to military spy satellites, communication satellites, computers, and the “brains” that dominate current automobile systems.

Thirty-five years ago, few would have thought that soon there would be pilots sitting at computer consoles, operating unmanned drones to make battle zone kills half a world away, then go home to eat dinner with their families.

Drones are becoming a largely unwanted, but irreversible reality; indeed, the latest generation fighters, the F-22 Raptor, and the problematic F-35 Lightning, may well be the last manned fighter aircraft in our nation’s armed forces arsenal.

I have made previous blogs on this subject; however, this video from Nova, Published on Jul 13, 2015, is the latest documentary I have found addressing this phenomenon.

When I considered the controversy over Kim Davis’ refusal to issue same-sex “marriage” licenses and the comments I received on the post, “THE LAW” VERSUS A CLEAR CONSCIENCE — reblogging Your Sister is in Jail, two things occurred to me:

  • The people of the United States profoundly disagree on the definition of “the law of the land.” We have lost whatever consensus we once had on the purpose of government.  If we had to reconstitute our government, we would probably be unable to agree upon a legitimate government. At best, we would be frightened into supporting a tyranny, which perhaps is happening even now.

The notion that Barack Obama is a “Christian” is utter nonsense. All evidence that has been right before our eyes for the last seven years say otherwise. Any and all evidence absolutely confirms Obama is a Muslim and a terrorist sympathizer. How can any rational person come to a different conclusion?  So, because Obama said one time he’s a Christian, that makes him one? However he’s never denied being a Muslim as far as I know. I guess we should believe him when he said (once) that he’s a Christian. Kind of like we can keep our health care insurance and our doctors, and we’ll save $2,500 each year, and Bergdahl served honorably, and ISIS is the JV team, and ISIS isn’t Islamic, and “I heard about the IRS scandal on the news,” “the fence between America and Mexico is “basically complete”, “those five Taliban guys I traded for Bergdahl are…

The State House and Senate of Maine has passed LD 652 which abolishes the requirement to get a concealed carry permit before you carry concealed and it will take effect in two weeks (October).

While signed and passed in June, it will become effective October of this year. This effectively ends the prerequisite need to get a permit, albeit the permit process will remain in place for those who so desire to obtain one.

With only two stipulations that do infringe the right to carry, it seems to be the best state law passed this year for 2nd Amendment rights. The two stipulations are that first, you must be at or over 21 years of age, and that you must tell an officer that you are carrying in a traffic stop.

Considering that multiple states practically deny the right to carry completely, moving to Maine will now…
