Standing Up For The Constitution!

Sometimes it seems that we hear nothing but how judges over step their powers and make laws and even at times over turn the Constitution. But it is also important to report on the good things that are done and correct decisions that are being made. Because if we do not, then we miss out on the other part of the story.
'Philly 5' win 1 in court
The condensed version of the story goes, a group of Christians are preaching God's word and participating in their 1st Amendment rights while peaceably assembled (another right). They are then confronted by a militant wing of the homosexual community called the Pink Angels. The Pink Angels became belligerent. Then it was the Christians that were arrested and hauled off to spend a night in jail.
Well, now a judge has reviewed the video tape of the incident and according to WorldNet Daily Common Pleas Judge Pamela Dembe stated that "she could not see any criminal activity being committed." (WNDs words, not her's)
This is an important first step in upholding several parts to our Constitution that include Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion and Freedom to peaceably assemble despite years of the left wing in America trying so very hard to silence those that disagree with them via the courts. If the judge's assessment of the video holds up, it will be a devastating blow to the cultural Marxists of the left wing.
Leave a comment if you like! *Note if you are a left wing, tin hat wearing, pro-Marxist loon that likes to post "anonymously" you will be treated like the kook you are!
Also, there is no exceptions in the 2nd amendment for assault weapons! So, as far as I am concerned, this AWB IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL ANYWAY!
Even the words "assault weapons" is classic propaganda. Anything used to hurt someone else could be labeled an assault weapon - even your hand! I PERSONALLY THINK THE MOUTHS OF FEINSTEIN AND SCHUMER SHOULD BE CONSIDERED ASSAULT WEAPONS TO BE BANNED FOR THEIR LIES AND DISINFORMATION.
The other thing that ticks me off is the misrepresentation of what our founding fathers said about 2nd amendment. TRY SOME OF THESE QUOTES ON FOR SIZE:
"... arms... discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. ...Horrid mischief would ensue were (the law-abiding) deprived the use of them." -Thomas Paine.
"On every question of construction (of the Constitution) let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed." -Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, June 12, 1823, The Complete Jefferson, p322.
"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny." -Thomas Jefferson, Bill for the More General diffusion of Knowledge (1778).
"To disarm the people (is) the best and most effectual way to enslave them..." -George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 380.
"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed." -Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-B.
"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined...The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.: -Patrick Henry.
"Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" -Patrick Henry
"To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." -Richard Henry Lee writing in Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic (1787-1788).
"The Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms." -Samuel Adams, debates & Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 86-87.
NOW TELL ME IF THE SCHUMERS AND THE FEINSTEINS OF THE WORLD ARE LIERS!
"...the people have a right to keep and bear arms." -Patrick Henry and George Mason, Elliot, Debates at 185.
"The right of the people to keep and bear...arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country..." -James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434 (June 8, 1789).
"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves... and include all men capable of bearing arms." -Richard Henry Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer (1788) at 169.
"The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age..." -Title 10, Section 311 of the U.S. Code. (see http: //www4 . law. cornel 1 . edu/uscode/)
"The people are nor to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them." -Zachariah Johnson, 3 Elliot, Debates at 646.
"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms." -Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution, 1 T. Jefferson Papers, 334 (C.J. Boyd, Ed., 1950).
"If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of
self defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government,.."-
Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist (#2 .
"As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms." -Tench Coxe, Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution, under the pseudonym "A Pennsylvanian" in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1989 at col. 1.
"The right of the people to keep and bear arms has been recognized by the General Government; but the best security of that right after all is, the military spirit, that taste for martial exercises, which has always distinguished the free citizens of these States... Such men form the best barrier to the liberties of America." -gazette of the United States, October 14, 1789.
"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe, the supreme power in America
"They that can give up liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania.
"The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts(only) as they arejinjurious)to others." -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia (1781-1.785) .
"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials." -George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 425-426.
"The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent_in_the pe_ople; that they may exercise it bythemselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed."
"(The Constitution preserves) the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation...(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." -James Madison.
"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." -Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria.
"Arms in the hands of citizens (may) be used at individual
discretion... in private self defense..." -John Adams, A defense of the
Constitutions of the Government of the USA, 471 (1788).
Hey, I believe their is a website called www.gunowners.(com or org) that is supposively better than the NRA now. It is called the Gunowners of America in case this website address is not totally correct!
The socialist gun grabbers are back at it again. They are on TV putting word in the mouths of our founding father and trying to change the meaning of the Constitution! THEY WANT TO RENEW THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN! THEY WOULD LIKE TO BAN MORE GUNS, TOO. AND THE TALK ABOUT HOW REGISTRATION IS GOOD. Socialist just don't give up! They want it all, our freedoms that is! And why is it almost always a women who is lying about this subject! Are they just stupid or what?
Haven't they seen the quotes from Hitler?
One that is commonly discussed is:
"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has FULL GUN REGISTRATION! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!"
by Hitler,1935 WHO WAS A SOCIALIST HIMSELF!
Yeah, those people were REAL safe, weren't they? All the way to the gas chambers!
What do you think of these quotes?
