Gun Owning Atheists

The 2nd Amendment guarantees an American's RIGHT to own firearms. Much like the 1st Amendment guarantees the concept to keep Church and State separate.

The next threat to OUR GUN RIGHTS inside our Gov't:

The next justice of the Supreme Court could well cast the deciding vote on the constitutionality of ObamaCare. And that justice will almost certainly preside, during the next thirty years, over dozens of cases which could very well chip away at the DC v. Heller decision, telling us which gun laws the court views as "constitutional" and which "unconstitutional."

So it is more than a little interesting that Barack Qbama has reached into his closet of political leftists to bring out Elena Kagan -- a woman whose legal views have been shaped by the most extreme socialist voices in Washington.

Kagan doesn't have a record of judicial opinions. She hasn't been a judge. So the crafty Obama figures that, without a paper trail, we won't know of the ways she is moving American jurisprudence to the left until it's too late.

But Kagan's views on the Second Amendment are no mystery. According to columnist James Oliphant, Kagan was part of "a small group of staffers work[ing] behind the scenes to pursue an aggressive policy agenda" during President Bill Clinton's second term.

Oliphant writes: "According to records at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Ark., [Kagan] drafted an executive order restricting the importation of certain semiautomatic assault rifles. She also helped prepare a question-and-answer document advocating the campaign-reform legislation then proposed by Sens. Russ Feingold and John McCain."

Kagan was also part of the Clinton team that pushed the firearms industry to include gun locks with all gun purchases and was in the Clinton administration when the president pushed legislation that would close down gun shows.

President Obama has made it very clear that he expects Kagan's "powers of persuasion" to make her and Justice Anthony Kennedy the swing votes to uphold his anti-gun ObamaCare legislation.

Kagan's opinion of the "greatest lawyer" of her lifetime was her former boss -- the consistently left-wing Justice Thurgood Marshall.

Bloomberg News reported on May 13 that while working for Justice Marshall, Kagan urged him to vote against hearing a gun owner's claim that his constitutional rights were violated.

Kagan wrote that she was "not sympathetic" toward the gun rights claim that was made in Sandidge v. United States -- an amazing statement for a woman who is being heralded for supposedly showing a "special solicitude" for the interests of certain groups.

Alas, it seems that gun owners are not a part of those groups for whom she would like to show special concern.

After the Heller case was handed down, Kagan did concede that the Second Amendment was an "individual right." But that makes her no different than the talking heads at the Brady Campaign.

Kagan, like the President who nominated her, is an extreme leftist. According to WeeklyStandard.com (May 6, 2009), she is so far to the left she has lamented that socialism has "never attained the status of a major political force" in our country.

And according to Politico.com (March 20, 2009), she says that foreign law can be used to interpret the U.S. Constitution in "some circumstances." Considering that most of the world does not respect the freedoms that are protected in our Second Amendment, this is a bad sign.

FACT ON GUN CONTROL: THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS NOT ABOUT DUCK HUNTING, IT'S ABOUT PROTECTING CITIZENS FROM GOVERNMENT.

Perhaps I've stumbled into the wrong place.I'm a machinist,not a lawyer,so for me to interpret it would be poor judgement.I would have thought there would be interest in investigating this piece of information considering it would affect most gun owners.As for being exact,bills introduced are more of a "lump sum"deal so,I can't very well say exactly what my objection is other than the entire bill itself.Living in S.C. most of my life,I'm accustomed to being a minority due to my religiosity.Now,I find myself on the same side as those I've been ostracized by.I'm not here to create a stir,so I apologize for taking up your time.

It seems to me to be a public matter unpublicized,that could severely restrict gun ownership rights while at the same time creating miles of red tape for the responsible majority.

I just learned of this May 13:H.R.45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009-This one is rather sneaky.

It has taken me months to get around to doing this...hello, all. My internet time plummets in the landwork time of year, so I may not check in again for another month or two. Just wanted to stick my nose in. Roach, I owe you a communique...great to hear from you...and am still figuring out all the buttons and niches on this interface (AN).

Hye Roach! Interesting name for such a pretty gal. How do you practice your 2nd Amd. Right? Hunting, Sporting or Self Defense?
Comment by Roach on February 25, 2009 at 5:03pm
Hello everyone,
I'm glad to join this group. The 2nd amendment is very important to me. I do get tired of being lumped into the same category as bible thumpers or neocons because of my stance.

Welcome Mike. I understand what you mean, it gets a bit sickening how many gun owners protect the 2nd Amendment and then choose to not accept the Separation of Church and State concept in our Constitution.

I'm so glad i found this group, i cant stand getting bashed by thses ignorant right wing puppet godbots, on every gun forum i visit.

its funny that they cite the 2nd amendment ever other sentence, and praise a god in the other, and tell me this is a christian nation, no blacks or gays or ragheads allowed,...seriously someone said this.

Genovive: That's REAL bad. Are there any other co-workers who feel disgusted by this?
Comment by Emily Dietle on October 21, 2008 at 9:54pm
Get this, my job has a new handbook and now they not only claim you can't have a gun on the premises (inside the building) but that you cannot keep it in your car (which is perfectly legal to do in my state, and legal since I have my carry permit). If I speak up, I will be suspected and it will be cause to search my car. ridiculous!!! infringing on my safety for when I go from work to elsewhere.
