Category Archives: Second Amendment


I visited the courthouse a few days ago to pick up my concealed carry permit renewal. The permit must be renewed every 5 years. Here in Wild and Wonderful, that is a $100.00-dollar process. It’s $75.00 for the background check and our county sheriff charges an additional $25.00 when the card is issued. The Sherriff’s fee may differ from county to county. In the state of West Virginia, a permit is no longer required to carry a concealed weapon, neither is certification of any firearms training. There are age restrictions. Open carry of handguns and long guns without permit has always been legal. I keep the permit current to comply with the reciprocity rules of other states.
When I entered the office to pick-up my permit, there was quite a long line of people in the concealed carry permit line. Most of them were initial applicants. When I finally made my way up to the clerk, I commented that the last time I was there, 5 years ago, I was the only person in line. She told me that anytime there is a shooting incident there is a surge of concealed carry applications. Better late than never.
That did not surprise me. Americans are fortunate to have a Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. It is fortunate we have the means to defend ourselves if we choose. We’ve seen time and again damage is done before the police can get there. In a self-defense situation calling the police is generally not an option. That is not a knock on the police. It is reality. Regardless of response time, which in most cases is only minutes, a marginally trained person with any type of semi-automatic firearm can do much damage to defenseless people before help arrives. Unfortunately, first responders too often arrive postmortem. Reality dictates that unless they are on scene when an attack starts or their action is preemptive, unprotected people are going to die.
Our world changed. It changed with the spread of international and home-grown terrorism. Both of which are likely here to stay. It changed culturally through abandonment of Judeo-Christian values and rejection of any moral authority or moral boundaries. It changed when both parents went to work and Johnny and Jane were left to raise themselves on a steady diet of graphically violent video games. It changed with a total societal immersion into social media turned social direction, turned social control and privacy thief with evil players to draw in the simple minded who may be prodded and groomed into doing the unthinkable. Johnny walks the school hallway and his delusional mind sees a video game.
Frankly, I think every adult American should seek firearms training and should arm themselves for protection. Background checks should be as thorough as possible, but I am concerned about mingling mental health records with criminal background checks. If you hear the words “Universal Background Check” that is a precursor to a national gun registry that is needed to track every firearms sale. This makes gun confiscation possible should any government ever believe that’s a good idea. With recent shooting incidents, mental illness has become an issue. I guess I don’t know how a background check might distinguish the severely mentally ill from someone who may have had a single episode. Is a variance in degree of mental illness considered? It is a complicated question. Certainly, severely mentally disabled people should not have access to firearms and for that matter any type of weapon if a formal psychiatric examination determines they are a danger to harm themselves or others. In work experience I’ve reviewed countless such examinations. I assure you different psychiatrists and psychologists frequently arrive at dissimilar conclusions for the same patient. Resolving this is not as simple as it is made to sound by politicians and media types and it will become more complicated when the mental health issues become intertwined with the legal issues surrounding privacy and access to a person’s health records. The problem for our country and our safety is a Congress that’s shown it cannot agree on any legislation to solve this or any other problem.
Trying to decipher any government report is akin to gouging your eyes out with a stick. So, you don’t have to endure the agony, I looked over a report prepared by the Congressional Research Service on Gun Control Legislation. The report said by the end of 2009, there were approximately 310 million firearms available to sale to civilians in the United States: 114 million handguns, 110 million rifles, and 86 million shotguns. By that 2009 report, more guns are available than we have people. Those are firearms we profess to know about. Weapons for sale but not in the hands of people.
The report does not tell us how many firearms are actually in the hands of law abiding American citizens nor does it know how many weapons are illegally obtained and in the hands of criminals and gangs. Eric Holder, however, can tell you how many he fast and furiously exported to the Mexican drug cartels. The report did state a 1994 survey showed “44 million people, approximately 35% of households, owned 192 million firearms, 65 million of which were handguns.” Any way you slice it, there are many legally owned firearms in the hands of law abiding American citizens who would never forfeit their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. An unarmed and defenseless citizenry becomes North Korea. That amendment was placed into our Constitution as a citizen check against tyrannical government. It also reinforces our natural right to self-defense. It is not the deer hunting or target shooting amendment.
Another myth is that “Assault Rifles” are in the hands of American citizens. It is a myth or in many cases and outright lie perpetrated by anti-gun organizations and politicians. Common belief is that “AR” means assault rifle. AR is short for Armalite Rifle, makers of the original AR-15. AR 15’s are semi-automatic rifles cosmetically modified to look like military rifles. They are no more lethal than any other semi-automatic rifle. A military rifle would have either the capability to fire a three-round burst of ammunition or fire full automatic. Banning rifles because they are cosmetically modified to look like military weapons is not going to make anyone or any unprotected place safer. Besides, according to the FBI, blunt objects, knives and handguns are by far the weapons of choice for homicides. Rifles are well down the list.

Banned or not, do you think criminals will not be able to get these weapons? They are now able to get illegal automatic weapons or illegally modified weapons. Do you believe firearms manufacturers will stop producing magazine fed semi-automatic rifles capable of firing NATO 5.56 ammunition? They’ll just make them look docile by removing the scary military cosmetics. People will continue to buy them and continue to add their own modifications. Banning cosmetically modified semi-automatic rifles does not address the issue of gun free zones and soft targets like our schools. Terrorists and murderers of the type we’ve witnessed whether in our schools, theaters or night clubs are only going to go after soft targets. Soft targets are called that because there is no resistance and no one is likely to shoot back. These people are not going to attack a police station.
Gun control, gun banning, gun confiscation, and almost any other gun control law you can imagine is not going to stop incidents of deranged and delusional people from walking into gun free zones and committing atrocities. These laws or any other are not going to keep guns out of the hands of criminals. People who cannot pass the most vigorous background check will still be able to illegally acquire firearms if they are determined to do so. It is hard to cure homicidal maniacs so we must quit the hysterical politics and figure out a way stop them from hurting people either through intelligence and preemption or direct action.
On April 20, 1999 at Columbine High School in Colorado, two high school seniors murdered 12 people and injured 21 others before committing suicide. For the record, they did not use AR-15s. They used Tec-9 semi-automatic pistols, a pump shotgun, a Hi-Point 995 Carbine, a sawed-off double-barreled shotgun, and explosives. Multiple school shootings later, not including other instances of mass shootings not related to schools, right up to Mary Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida February 14, 2018 where 17 students and teachers were murdered we’ve done nothing. As a nation, we have squabbled hysterically about gun control, beat the NRA senseless, but have never had the wherewithal to address the real issue – the security of our schools and public areas and the elimination of gun free zone soft targets. Nor have we ventured to discuss our cultural shortcomings.
Security is not simple and active shooter training is not enough when the shooter is going to pull a fire alarm and wait for people to enter the kill zone before shooting. Each facility requires a thorough professional threat assessment.
I am hearing advocates for placing armed retired police officers and military Veterans in our schools. That is fine for as far as it goes. But no one should be placed in a school and charged with the responsibility of protecting students and teachers without first completing a thorough training course on engaging armed assailants in a close combat environment with the potential of injuring many non-combatants. Local police SWAT could easily conduct such a training program.
I am also hearing let’s arm teachers. My first year retired from the Army was spent in a public High School. I am not an advocate of arming teachers with expectation they will primarily engage combatants. Teachers are the people whose priority must be safely securing and evacuating students. It’s something they must practice with urgency as often as they do fire drills. I am not opposed to teachers carrying concealed weapons if they are professionally trained in security and as last resort actively engaging a combatant. They also require periodic range time and refresher training with cost borne by local governments before trusting them with weapons in a school environment.
How bad can it be? On September 1, 2004 Chechen Islamic terrorists arrived in a police van to a school in Beslan, North Ossetia of the Russian Federation and took 1100 people hostage. At the end of the three-day siege, 334 people were dead including 186 children. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School enrollment is 2,972 with 129 full-time teachers. Our schools are soft targets. Suicidal terrorists likely already in our country know it.

Why The Government Is Preparing For Post-Election Chaos

“This Quickly Escalates Into Open Warfare” – Why The Government Is Preparing For Post-Election Chaos



Devvy Kidd

What? How can you say that?

On April 7, 2012, I wrote a column titled, Americans Love the IRS and the Income Tax. Oh, boy. I got email from people – how can Devvy say that? Well, once they read the column they understood the title.

Obviously not all gun owners in this country support career criminal Hillary Clinton. But, back in 2008 I was floored reading election breakdowns on the staggering number of gun owners who voted for both the criminal impostor in the White House and Hillary.

It is estimated there are about 85 million gun owners in this country. How many actually voted in 2008 is a mystery as I was unable to find any credible numbers on that. However, it is beyond comprehension why ANY gun owner would have voted for Second Amendment haters Obama and Hillary the Hun.

Yes, I am fully aware there are individuals in this country who actually believe the Second Amendment was included in the Bill of Rights to protect Jake’s right to go deer hunting. I’m speculating here but I’m guessing it’s folks like that who favor gun control and a ban on assault weapons. They are not only ignorant as voters, they are dangerous because they vote.

Hillary Clinton has flip-flopped her position more times on the Second Amendment than cooks at a International House of Pancakes on Sunday morning. Not to mention how she lies about statistics. Hillary tailors her position to the crowd she’s speaking to or during debates. But, make no mistake about it. Unwrap the spin and shovel aside the BS: Hillary Clinton wants to someday see the Second Amendment so gutted only deer hunters would be allowed to own a rifle.

Of course the problem remains the same: The majority of the American people have no understanding of the true meaning of the Second Amendment. Most know nothing, thanks to dumbing down centers called public schools why Patrick Henry fought so hard for a bill of Rights. As I have written before, neither did I until I began reading Dr. Edwin Vieira’s critically important columns and books on the issue.

What the majority of gun owners don’t know about the Second Amendment is pathetic and you can thank gun groups like the NRA for continuing to ignore the true meaning of that amendment and keeping their 5 million members in the dark. Hey – don’t forget to send those donations and membership dues!

I’m not going to rehash what I’ve already written about the Second Amendment and the constitutional militia. You can read Dr. Vieira’s outstanding and fully researched columns and help educate others so they become knowledgeable about the Second Amendment and why if it weren’t for that amendment we’d all be in chains by now.

Christmas is coming and while I hope you purchase a copy of my book, Taking Politics Out of Solutions, I also hope you purchase a copy of Dr. Vieira’s short book that is an outstanding primer if you will, on the Second Amendment and what it really means: Thirteen Words.

Gun owners who are going to vote between now and November 8th need to wake up about Clinton and their guns. ANY gun owner who votes for Hillary Clinton must want her to gut the Second Amendment because that’s exactly what she will do:

Four ways Hillary Clinton will work to end gun ownership as president by John Lott, June 06, 2016: “From changing the Supreme Court to make it possible to again ban guns in the United States to making it more costly to own guns, I predict that a President Hillary Clinton will do four things to either ban guns or at least reduce gun ownership, especially for poor people.”

Democrat exposes Hillary’s executive orders for guns – Twitter shuts down O’Keefe as he releases new undercover video revealing 2nd Amendment plans

Wikileaks Release: Hillary Clinton Press Sec Says Gun Control to Be Implemented by Executive Order, October 7, 2016 – Like that pig she’s married to when Billy the serial adulterer and rapist was president, Hillary thinks she can just make an end run around the Constitution.

“The batch of emails released by Wikileaks on October 7 includes one in which Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon explained that Clinton “would support…closing the gun show loophole by executive order.” Fallon also highlighted Clinton’s support of universal background checks–which have already failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris–and her support for a scenario wherein victims of crime would be able to sue gun manufacturers.”

Any gun owner who votes for Hillary Clinton is apparently willing to trade the Second Amendment for any or all of the endless promises Hillary Clinton has been making for the past year and a half. She couldn’t create a job if her life depended on it. The only thing that witch knows is promising voters the people’s purse for their pet causes, constitutional or not. Well, watch out because she is a globalist and the next ‘free’ trade treaty she signs and if NAFTA and the others aren’t repealed it just might be your job shipped to Hong Kong or India.

Think not? Think again. Hillary has been ‘outed’ as desiring open borders and unfettered ‘free’ trade even if it means the final destruction of our most important job sectors: agriculture, manufacturing and industrial.

If the majority of gun owners voted Trump it would almost certainly cinch a loss for that pathological liar, a life long criminal who cares nothing for America or her people – only money and power – who shouldn’t even be allowed to run for office because of her ‘reckless’ handling of classified information (email servers) and she owns Benghazi. Clinton is known around the world as the ‘Butcher of Benghazi’ for good reason.

I pray gun owners in this country who are thinking about voting for Hillary Clinton stop and really think about what it would mean putting her in the White House. Remember:

Clinton says she has ‘both a public and a private position’ on Wall Street: WikiLeaks release, October 8, 2016

Clinton told top banking executives that she has “both a public and a private position” on Wall Street reform and is reliant on wealthy donors to fund her campaign, leaked excerpts of the former first lady’s speeches seem to show, fueling claims of hypocrisy on the part of Mrs. Clinton at a crucial moment in the presidential campaign.

“The release by WikiLeaks, which the Clinton campaign has said it will not confirm, appears to show Mrs. Clinton discussing how she seeks to “balance” her public rhetoric on Wall Street reform with her actual positions, and with the reality that wealthy bankers and investors must partner with government to enact change. The documents also show the former secretary of state admitting that she’s out of touch with average Americans and is “kind of far removed” from the lives of the middle class.”

She is a two faced liar.

God forbid Clinton is actually declared the winner, just like Bill Clinton’s two terms, Hillary’s time as president WILL be spent fighting off one scandal or another (Is This Clinton Cash Connection The ‘Smoking Gun’ That Will Shoot Down Hillary’s High Hopes?) as well as continued congressional and FBI investigations. No question. Is this really what the American people want while our country goes to hell?

‘Pay to Slay’: Hillary link to baby body-parts biz revealed

“‘Pay to Slay:’ Foreign crime family reached Hillary Clinton for immigration favors so they could run a baby parts harvesting business,” the Isaias brothers – Roberto, William and Estefano Sr – “sought asylum in the U.S. in 2008, after looting millions of dollars from an Ecuadorian bank.” They and family members now are listed as principals of the two California companies targeted by prosecutors.

“During that time, the family made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to Democratic and Republican political campaigns. Family members gave roughly $300,000 to Democrat politicians alone and reached out to Hillary Clinton thru (sic) her aide, Cheryl Mills,” the report said. “In return, the family received favorable treatment from the Obama administration and State Department under Clinton, which expedited their immigration into the U.S.”

Former FBI Asst. Director: Final Bomb About to Drop on Hillary in Next 10 Days, October 29, 2016: “James Kallstrom, former Assistant Director of the FBI, went on with Judge Jeanine Pirro to discuss the latest announced FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton. Kallstrom says he thinks “something big is going to happen.”

Exclusive: FBI still does not have warrant to review new Abedin emails linked to Clinton probe, October 29, 2016

Hillary sent ‘marked classified’ info to nonsecure Abedin account

Smoking Gun! Approximately 15% of Bernie’s Votes Were Flipped to Clinton in California. This analysis was dated July 4, 2016. It is all too familiar to me. Our voting system (I know I sound like a broken record) is beyond broken, it’s totally corrupt yet none of the 50 state legislatures ever bother to get it cleaned up so each election cycle it’s the same fraud with more and more illegal aliens voting in OUR elections.

Knxoville Police threaten to arrest Tennessee Handgun Permit Holders
who ask if they can enter Chilhowee park armed

Members of the Tennessee Firearms Association have sued Knoxville claiming that the city illegally banned handgun permit holders from attending the 2015 State Fair that was being held in Chilhowee Park.  TFA members claimed that following a change in the law in 2015, local governments like Knoxville lack the legal authority under a new amendment to a state law (TCA 39-17-1311 and TCA 39-17-1314) to prohibit handgun permit holders from carrying their otherwise legally possessed handguns in a public park.  The lawsuit seeks to have Knoxville’s gun ban policy declared illegal under state law. 
The city has challenged the lawsuit by claiming in a motion to dismiss the complaint that the plaintiffs have not “alleged an actual injury, such as being arrested, fined or even turned away by police …”  The city claims that without such actual harm — i.e., being arrested — the plaintiffs, even as Tennessee citizens, have no standing to question whether the city was violating state law.
On September 13, 2016, seven TFA members approached Chilhowee Park near Gate 8 in the early evening to ask at least three different Knoxville police officers stationed there if they would be arrested if they entered the park as handgun permit holders in possession of their firearms.  Three times they were told that they would be arrested even after disclosing that they had state issued handgun permits.  The incident was recorded and observed by several witnesses.  Specifically, Ray and Kimberly Bergeron discussed the matter with Knoxville Police Department’s deputy chief of patrol, Monty Houk, as they stood outside the gate to the fairgrounds.

Officer Houk confirmed to them that they would be subject to arrest on a charge of criminal trespassing if they violated Knoxville’s ban of firearms in Chilhowee Park. The discussion was video taped.  When the risk of imminent arrest was clearly threatened by law enforcement, the TFA members politely thanked the Officer for his assistance and clarification and left peaceably – despite having their 2nd Amendment rights intentionally violated by the City of Knoxville.
“It is a travesty that Knoxville apparently did not admit to the trial court that it had established a policy to arrest citizens who have handgun permits and who desired to enter Chilhowee Park so that it became necessasry to have a group of our members go back out to the park with video cameras, witnesses, their handgun permits, their firearms, and purchase tickets just to stand outside the park and ask the Knoxville Police officers stationed there what would happen if they entered Chilhowee Park,”   said John Harris, Executive Director of the Tennessee Firearms Association.  “Government actions like this is why so many Tennesseans are increasingly frustrated with local and state government and are searching for alternatives to the traditional, career politicians who think that they are above the law.”
“The courts should intervene and protect the constitutional rights of Tennesseans particularly when the state has by law denied any authority to local governments to ban firearms in public Parks” said Harris.  “Further, Tennessee’s Legislature perhaps should expend a little more time making sure that citizens have the capacity to enforce their consittutional rights when infringed by local governments without having to do so from a jail cell.”

NRA: Libertarian VP Candidate ‘Anti-Gun’

Libertarian Party no longer libertarian

The Libertarian Party is running an anti-gun candidate for vice president, the NRA warned.

“As governor of Massachusetts, William Weld supported various gun control schemes, including a ban on semi-automatic firearms,” the NRA confirmed. “Unfortunately, and despite being the Libertarian candidate for vice president, Weld continues his anti-gun ways.”
Weld recently confirmed his anti-gun stance – and his ignorance on guns in general.
“The five-shot rifle, that’s a standard military rifle; the problem is if you attach a clip to it so it can fire more shells and if you remove the pin so that it becomes an automatic weapon,” Weld said during a interview in August. “And those are independent criminal offenses.”
“That’s when they become essentially a weapon of mass destruction.”
He also attacked AR-15 owners, the NRA revealed.
“Weld went on to suggest to the interviewer that both handguns and AR-15s are a ‘problem,’ stating, ‘The problem with handguns is probably even worse than the problem of the AR-15,’” the NRA added. “This latest episode reveals that when pressed on firearms issues, despite any assurances he has given to voters, Weld’s political instincts are to abandon gun owners and embrace gun control.”
Weld’s partner on the LP ticket, Gary Johnson, also holds numerous anti-libertarian views, including support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
“I’m a real skeptic when it comes to these trade agreements, that in fact they can be laden with crony capitalism, but based on people that have been advising me that I hold in very high esteem, I’m being told that the TPP would in fact advance free trade and so I would support that document,” Johnson said.
The TPP, however, allows countries that rely on slave labor to continue the practice; in fact, President Obama even removed an anti-slavery provision from the TPP which prevented Malaysia from joining the agreement.
“The provision, which bars countries that engage in slavery from being part of major trade deals with the U.S., was written by Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.),” the Huffington Post reported in 2015. “At the insistence of the White House, Menendez agreed to modify his language to say that as long as a country is taking ‘concrete’ steps toward reducing human trafficking and forced labor, it can be part of a trade deal.”
Malaysia is a major hub for human trafficking in Southeast Asia, with enslaved men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking, according to the State Dept.
Thailand, which the Obama administrated invited to join the TPP, also relies on slave labor to prop up its economy, according to the AP.
“For… 16 hours, No. 31 and his wife stood in the factory that owned them with their aching hands in ice water,” the AP reported. “They ripped the guts, heads, tails and shells off shrimp bound for overseas markets, including grocery stores and all-you-can-eat buffets across the United States.”
“After being sold to the Gig Peeling Factory, they were at the mercy of their Thai bosses, trapped with nearly 100 other Burmese migrants.”
How is slavery – and gun control – remotely libertarian?  And, with the Johnson/Weld ticket, how is the Libertarian Party even remotely libertarian?

Exclusive Video: Clinton Delegate Explains how Democrats Will Ban All Guns

Democrat operative says Hillary would support total gun ban

Editor’s note: This is a Project Veritas exclusive in association with Infowars. James O’Keefe will be on the Alex Jones Show today at noon CST to discuss the story.

If your goal is an outright gun ban, you need to use terms such as “common sense gun legislation” to fool the public, a Hillary Clinton campaign delegate admitted in a recent undercover sting video released exclusively to Infowars.

“Saying you want to ban guns altogether, that’s going to piss everybody off,” the Clinton alternate delegate, Mary Bayer, told a Project Veritas reporter.

Instead, Bayer revealed, Democrats use “moderate” language when it comes to guns to obscure their true purpose, a complete elimination of the Second Amendment.

“You have to take that sort of moderate… ‘We just wanna have common sense legislation so our children are safe!’” Bayer told the reporter, adding, “You say shit like that, and then people will buy into it.”

Bayer also admitted Hillary “for sure” would support banning guns, and said the only way to actualize that goal would be to “get Democrats in office.”

The delegate’s admission is particularly concerning given the fact that Clinton campaigns on the promise of enacting “common sense approaches” to gun control if elected president in November.

Bayer’s revelations of a potential gun ban are also reminiscent of sentiments made public in 2014 by Poughkeepsie Mayor John Tkazyik, once a member of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” who warned that the billionaire’s anti-gun group – largely comprised of Democrat mayors and which advocated “common sense gun laws” – was a cover for gun confiscation.

“Under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens,” Tkazyik penned in an op-ed for the Poughkeepsie Journal, confirming what many already suspected about the group.

The latest damning sting video follows another Project Veritas effort in which reporters posing as the group “Citizens Against Senseless Violence” asked anti-gun politicians if they would display signs on their front lawns declaring their homes “Gun free zones.”

Unsurprisingly, none of the politicians wanted the sign displayed at their homes.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe says his organization will also be seeking additional support for his anti-gun effort from delegates at the Democrat National Convention this week in Philadelphia.
