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.

Gungrip.com or Gunaccessories.com. Gunaccessories.com is probably your best bet.

I'm looking for some replacement grips for my Rossi .357 revolver, but I'm having trouble finding a good site to buy from. Any suggestions?

The only problem with that is the people I know in MS are not atheists, but they do support the separation of church and state.

Aiden: Ideally, we need members who are at least members of FFrF so that the Foundation has a legal standing to represent the Plaintiff.
The FFrF wants to challenge an unconstitutional action by the Mississippi legislature creating, by law, a legislative prayer caucus, with the Lt. Governor empowered to choose the chairperson. This action grossly entangles government with religion!

If your connections in MS are interested, ask them to drop me a line at mdooo1@yahoo.com. Or even better, ask them to join AN and we can connect here.

What's the lawsuit about? I know some people down in MS who are not members of AN...

I NEED MISSISSIPPI RESIDENTS INTERESTED IN BEING PLAINTIFFS IN AN UPCOMING LAWSUIT AGAINST THE STATE OF MS!!!

The Freedom From religion Foundation needs people willing to lend their status as residents of MS, (i.e. Plaintiffs), in a pending legal filing. I will be more than happy to direct FFrF's attorney to anyone interested in this urgent issue.
In addition, FFrF is also looking for references to attorneys in MS to function as a local Legal Council.
Thank you and please take this into serious consideration.
MD.

"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks."
—Thomas Jefferson
