The last post also reminds of the problems of what's going on with pirates in the seas.  Many ships are sailing unarmed.  I don't know the exact laws of sailing at sea & weapons, but there appears to be a ban against it.  This is ridiculous considering only criminals don't care about gun bans in the first place and know their victims will be unarmed.

Don't know where the top one came from, but it's brilliant!


This bottom one comes from the Jewish Preservation of Firearms Ownership.  This group of pro-gun owners
rock!

marframil: HR45-Another Dangerous Blow to Gun Rights

HR45 - Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 (Introduced in House)


NSMDOC says: http://thomas. loc. gov/cgi-bin/query/z... HR 45 says that if you dont register your guns within 60 days of moving you go to prison for two years if you leave a box of rounds on the table and your kid picks up just the rounds its ten years no gun involved....if ever a piece of legislation needed defeating this is it.

marframil: A few gun related bills going through Congress....

From Gun Owners of America:

Firearms Legislation In The 111th Congress

 

 

Gun Owners of America analysis of current House Bills:
H.R. 17, H.R. 45, H.R. 197 AND H.R. 442

H.R. 17 (Bartlett): This bill would reaffirm the right to use firearms for self-defense and for defense of one’s home and family.

H.R. 45 (Rush):  This bill would require a license for handguns and semiautomatics, including those currently possessed.  The applicant must be thumbprinted and sign a certification that, effectively, the firearm will not be kept in a place where it would be available for the defense of the gun owner’s family.  The applicant must also make available ALL of his psychiatric records, pass an exam, and pay a fee of up to $25.  The license may be renewed after five years and may be revoked.  Private sales would be outlawed, and reports to the attorney general of all transactions would be required, even when, as the bill allows, the AG determines that a state licensing system is sufficiently draconian to substitute for the federal license.  With virtually no exceptions, ALL firearms transactions (involving semiautos, handguns, long guns, etc.) would be subject to a Brady check.  In addition, the bill would make it unlawful in nearly all cases to keep any loaded firearm for self-defense.  A variety of “crimes by omission” (such as failure to report certain things) would be created.  Criminal penalties of up to ten years and almost unlimited regulatory and inspection authority would be established.

H.R. 197 (Stearns):  This bill would establish national standards for concealed carry reciprocity, but would not protect residents of pro-gun states like Vermont and Alaska which do not require paper permits.

H.R. 442 (Rehberg):  This bill would provide amnesty for a veteran who acquired a “souvenir” (such as a machine gun) while serving overseas, so long as it is registered during a 90-day grace period.

marframil: Ammunition Accountability: Maybe we’d better take this bill seriously

Dave Henderson: Maybe we'd better take this bill seriously

December 4, 2008 Ever since the early 1970s, whenever downstate Assemblymen rattled sabers and proposed radical anti-gun or anti-hunting legislation, we could count on the conservative Senate Republican majority to block it.


That was then.
The scene changed dramatically on Nov. 4. Now the outrageous stuff coming out of the Assembly has some credence on the other side of the aisle. The Democrats — and that means the New York City mentality — have the majority in both houses. Except for four swing votes, they have pretty much carte blanche.

opencarry.org is trying to get open carry here in TX. I signed the petition.

Something else.

The bail outs. I would like to invite anyone in this community and anyone you know to join me on Wednesday at 3pm to visit Representatives Lloyd Doggett or Lamer Smith, Sen. John Cornyn, and Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison to express our disdain for the new upcoming bail outs. I am not expecting this to make a big impact or that it will even spark a notion in their minds that they should do the right thing, I am just irate and I want to express my outrage and I would like it if we can have a group of irate voters to be a thorn in the side!

I would start with Doggett and Hutchison since their offices are in the same building.
300 E 8th St.
Doggett #763
Hutchison #961

Cornyn
Bank One Bld
221 W 6th St #1530

Lamar Smith
13333-A Hwy 71 West #100 (Bee Caves)

Consider it.

doommonkey: 170,000,000

That's the number of civilians that have been murdered by their own governments in the 20th century alone. 170,000,000 men, women, and children who were defenseless to protect themselves. 170,000,000 victims of gun control.

Everything there is to Know about Gun Control in 99 Words
© 2007 January 07 by G. Edward Griffin

Gun-control laws do not control crime because crimes are not committed by guns; they are committed by criminals. Criminals will always have guns because they do not obey laws, including anti-gun laws. Those without guns are easy prey for criminals with guns. Gun control encourages crime.

The right to bear arms was included in the Bill of Rights, not to deter crime, but to deter oppressive government. Just governments honor and protect the right to bear arms. Oppressive governments fear and prohibit the right to bear arms.

Guns are dangerous. The only thing more dangerous is not having them.

marframil: Sign A Petition For Open Carry in Texas

SIGN A PETITION FOR OPEN CARRY IN TEXAS
A petition is currently being circulated to demand the right to open carry a firearm in Texas.

http://www.star-telegram.com/804/story/715977.html

To: Texas State Legislature and Texas Governor Rick Perry

We hold that all citizens who may lawfully purchase a handgun be allowed to carry openly in public in the State of Texas except for those places prohibited by law. We also call for state preemption of all handgun laws concerning open carry in Texas.

1. Every individual has the right and responsibility to defend their self against unjustified threats of death or serious bodily injury.

2. The Constitution of the United States guarantees the right of individuals to keep and bear arms.

3. Criminals are not deterred by rules, regulations, and laws forbidding the possession of weapons. A man bent on mass murder will not be stopped by a rule forbidding him to have a gun.

4. It is well known that the requirement to conceal a handgun for the purpose of protecting self, friends, and family can be difficult especially in Texas with our extreme heat since a person will usually have to wear a jacket to properly conceal a handgun and to avoid "printing."

5. The requirement to conceal a handgun can make it difficult to draw the weapon should the life of the carrier or the life of someone else be in danger.

6. A criminal will not open carry a weapon because he does not want to draw attention to himself. We believe that a citizen openly carrying a handgun lawfully will be a deterrent for crime.

7. Ten states including Arizona, Alaska, Idaho, Kentucky, Montana, New Mexico, South Dakota, Virginia, Vermont, and Wyoming all allow open carry of handguns without a license. Twelve states including Connecticut, Indiana, Iowa, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, North Dakota, Rhode Island, Utah, and Tennessee allow open carry of handguns with a license. In fact, Texas is one of only SIX states in the entire United States that completely bans open carry of handguns.

8. In these states, Open carry is very common and it does not alarm law enforcement or other citizens.

For the foregoing reasons, we residents of the State of Texas affirm and assert that all citizens who may lawfully purchase a handgun be allowed to carry openly in public in the State of Texas except for those places prohibited by law. We also call for state preemption of all handgun laws concerning open carry in Texas.

Please sign the petition here.

An actual decent article on those who carry guns openly.  This was posted in the LA Times of all places.
