Attorney General Holder says, "WE HAVE NO RIGHT TO POSSESS GUNS."TAKES 10 SECONDS ... DO IT AND PASS IT ON.Guess they were not happy with the poll results the first time, so USA today is running another one...Vote now... Attorney General Eric Holder, has already said this is one of his major issues. He does not believe the 2nd Amendment gives individuals the right to bear arms. This takes literally 2 clicks to complete. Please vote on this gun issue question with USA Today. Then pass the link on to all the pro-gun folks you know. Hopefully these results will be published later this month. This upcoming year will become critical for gun owners with the Supreme Court's accepting the District of Columbia case against the right for individuals to bear arms. Here's what you need to do:First - vote.Second- launch it to other folks, then we will see if the results get published.

AMERICA'S HUNTERS Interesting slant on things...INTERESTINGAMERICA'S HUNTERS --- Pretty Amazing! The world's largest army... America's hunters!I had never thought about this... A blogger added up the deer license salesin just a handful of states andarrived at a striking conclusion: There were over 600,000 huntersthis season in the state of Wisconsin .Allow me to restate that number: Over the last several months, Wisconsin's hunters became theeighth largest army in the world. More men under arms than in Iran. More than France and Germany combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state,Wisconsin, to hunt with firearms, andno one was killed. That number pales in comparison to the 750,000who hunted the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigan's 700,000 hunters, all of whom have now returned home safely.Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literallyestablishes the factthat the hunters of those four states alone wouldcomprise the largest army in the world.And then add in the total number of huntersin the other 46 states.It's millions more. The point? America will forever be safefrom foreign invasion with that kind ofhome-grown firepower. Hunting...it's not just a way to fill the freezer. It's a matter ofnational security. *************************************** That's why all enemies, foreign and domestic,want to see us disarmed. Food for thought,when next we consider gun control. Have A Great Day! ------------------------------------- Overall it's true,so if we disregard some assumptions that hunters don'tpossess the same skills as soldiers,the question would still remain...what army of 2 million wouldwant to face 30, 40, 50 million armed citizens. For the sake of our freedom,don't ever allow gun control or confiscation of guns.
Justices Extend Firearm Rights in 5-to-4 Ruling WASHINGTON ó The Second Amendmentís guarantee of an individual right to bear arms applies to state and local gun control laws, the Supreme Court ruled Monday in a 5-to-4 decision. The ruling came almost exactly two years after the court first ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to own guns in District of Columbia v. Heller, another 5-to-4 decision. Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., writing for the majority, said the right to self-defense protected by the Second Amendment was fundamental to the American conception of ordered liberty. Like other provisions of the Bill of Rights setting out such fundamental protections, he said, it must be applied to limit not only federal power but also that of state and local governments. The ruling is an enormous symbolic victory for supporters of gun rights, but its short-term practical effect is unclear. As in the Heller decision, the justices left for another day just what kinds of gun control laws can be reconciled with Second Amendment protection. The majority said little more than that there is a right to keep handguns in the home for self-defense.
