Where did like-minded justices stand on Heller? How much credence do they give stare decisis? You really think Obama justices would stay with the majority on Heller? Just because of historical "precedent"? You do realise the irony of this right?

In fact, justices like Ginsburg, Breyer, etc. have blatantly criticised stare decisis when it disagrees with their progressive agenda, and employ stare decisis when it agrees.

The judicial branch is blatantly as politicised as the other two. There is absolutely no reason to believe Heller will stand when the court turns liberal.

Instead of hiding in the woods and stockpiling guns, why not speak out peacefully against some of the actions of the US government against it's own citizens. Americans' rights are slowly being stripped away, and it's a shame there's no Occupy style movement to bring mass attention to it.

Its probably too late for that, and making noises without being able to back it up with something is bound to be ineffective if they even allow it.

Until the gun-rights defenders can explain how their semi-auto's, with 100 shot magazines, are going to stop the drone strike that takes out their house, they are 'urinating into a Chinook' .. it feels good til it cools off, apparently .. :P

Let's put it this way, much of, if not the majority of the U.S. military, is not considered "politically reliable" in certain quarters, that's why there was talk of establishing a Civilian National Security Force, that's just as strong, just as powerful, just as well funded as the U.S. Military.

LOL as well funded? How on earth would you do that?


I'm really surprised at how many people are so afraid of tyrrany in the US. I knew there were some crazies, but man, it is a lot more rampant than I thought...

You obviously have no idea how often rights are trampled upon or suspended in the US.

Following tragedy is obviously the most expedient time to remove them.

People who protect the second amendment fervently to me are no different than those who protect the first. Especially when they want to protect both. Somehow you must feel that rights are indefinitely safe if kept in government's hands? I wonder what your historical basis for this thought process is.

I do, and if I were you I'd be more worried about others than the right to my gun. Because if it ever actually came to the point where you actually had the collective balls to rise up in an armed revolution, your country would be long gone by then anyway.

Easier to protect the First Amendment when you have the Second Amendment.

Of course, having a gun doesn't mean the government can't just take you out, but if 10% of the population have guns, that's more folks than the entire armed forces of the USA.


Back to the topic of the CEO.... he's the type of people who shouldn't have guns.... erratic and unstable.

Okay. I'm totally convinced. Going back to the original post, I am so super glad that people like this are allowed to have their "rights" to shoot other people upheld. What was I thinking when I first felt that was wrong to take another life? Silly me.
I mean, you have to protect yourself right? Not just from the people coming left right and center into your home, but from any threat whatseover to your rights.
And yes, we need bigger weapons to be more effective at ripping someone to shreds. Merely deterring them while you escape is simply not acceptable anymore (forget pepper spray - that lets them live). It's such a good thing that people have no reservations about taking another life with such ease, or else this could be a problem.
Glad the wool from my eyes has been lifted!

State suspends gun carry permit for TN man who made viral video

WSMV-TV
updated 2 hours 52 minutes ago

http://www.msnbc.msn...o/#.UPDGGrQ4Tdk

A Middle Tennessee firearms trainer who made an ominous and very public promise in a YouTube video that gained national attention this week, has had his handgun carry permit suspended Friday by the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

James Yeager, 42, had his permit suspended based on a "material likelihood of risk of harm to the public," the department said in a statement.

Yeager told Channel 4 News he is aware of the suspension, and his attorney will handle his statements going forward.

The department said Yeager has the right to seek a review of the decision.

Man's YouTube video gains national attention

James Yeager is a man with an impressive resume, including time as a small-town police chief and serving in security in Baghdad, but he said he spoke in anger when he made the video.

"I'm telling you, if that happens, it's going to spark a civil war, and I'll be glad to fire the first shot," Yeager said in a video on his YouTube page.

He was reacting to a recent comment from Vice President Joe Biden that the Obama administration may take executive action to pass control measures.

"I'm not going to let anyone take my guns. If it goes one inch further, I'm going to start killing people," he said in the YouTube video.

Yeager pulled the comments from YouTube after receiving backlash, and he said Thursday he didn't mean what he said.

"I was angry when I made the video and probably should have metered my words better. I am not plotting to kill any officials or anything like that," Yeager told Channel 4 News.

Yeager runs Tactical Response, a training center in Camden, TN, that specializes in weapons and tactical skills. The door of the business notes the staff is trained to kill.

The well-armed clientele was already making neighbors at the strip mall nervous, and then they heard the video.

"The guy needs to chill it. You know, you make those threats, and you've said that and now you come around the wrong person, you get hurt like that," said John Eaker, who owns a nearby pawn shop.

"He may get more than he asks if he keeps running that yak on the internet, you know," another neighbor said.

Yeager said he knows he's considered a radical in his views, but he's is not backing off comments that he will defend his right to bear arms in spite of getting death threats by email.

"It will be time to shoot people when the Constitution is set on fire," he told Channel 4 News. "If somebody comes to take my guns, I will shoot them."

According the Tennessee Department of Safety, Yeager is not a certified instructor. When asked about that, he said he allowed his license to expire.

The state also said Tactical Response is not a department-certified school.

Yeager served as police chief of the town of Big Sandy, TN, about a decade ago. The former mayor said Yeager is intelligent and a crack shot, but he thought Yeager's plan to start a SWAT team wasn't what the quiet town of 500 people really needed, so the mayor fired him.

Despite the threatening emails and phone calls, Yeager said he has received far more messages of support.

How would I have "collective" balls? That would imply that I control what others do. I don't, nor do I want to.

The real test to see if Americans would "rise up" came after 9/11. Rather than fight for their (constitutional) freedoms, freedom of speech, freedom from unreasonable searches, indefinite wiretaps, etc., instead they allow "free speech zones", "warrantless wiretaps", TSA "backscatter" imaging machines. They allow Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner to squelch John Conyers' impeachment hearing of George W. Bush. I can go on and on.

Gotta love the whole 2nd amendment / gun control debate and it's all over one of the most ambiguous sentences there is.

Any anti-gun control nuts out there should be forced to define what "arms" and "to bear" means as it relates to law abiding, tax paying citizens.

If there is to be any distinction between "arms" that only the military can have and "arms" that civilians can "bear", that means that there is regulation and "gun control"

The moment that there are restrictions on where one can "bear" their "arms", that's more gun control.

I challenge any definition that doesn't introduce "gun control" that also doesn't sound like a crazy person wrote it (in other words, average citizens can posses and use nukes, a form of arms).

That issue was dealt with by the majority in the Heller case.

What crusade? Second amendment is the one getting the most attention in the media, and thus most attention from the masses who take their cues from them. I hardly see any topics here about the first, fourth, and fourteenth amendments.

Well I`ve seen all the canned answers where people continuously cite the 2nd ammendment. That really isn`t an intelligent argument to me. That document was written hundreds of years ago and has no real basis today. There has to be a limit on arms, otherwise people could walk down the street with RPG`s tucked in their coats.

And don`t tell me the government has no right to tell you what to do. Because the government tells you what to do every day of your life. That`s what laws are.

I was just hoping to get a unique perspective from someone who clearly has a passion for guns. But I guess I`m not gonna get it. Too bad, cause you're gonna need a better argument than the second ammendment if you wanna keep your assault rifles.

What is this nonsense about needing assault weapons to protect yourself from an oppressive government? Paranoia much? When the amendment was written, it made a helluva lot more sense at the time when warfare consisted of muskets and cannons. But tell me more about how your ability to inadequately fire your assault rifle is going to protect you against the U.S. military.
