Bloomberg Backed Anti-Gun Group Takes On NC Gun Law They Don’t Understand

I’ve been remiss in covering the latest Freak Out by the anti-gunnites here in North Carolina, which extends to the Typical Liberal Media here in Raleigh, in Charlotte, and other news outlets. Let’s see what this is really, really about

(Breitbart) Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety is fighting the repeal of a law that requires North Carolinians to acquire a permit to purchase a handgun before they can actually purchase one. They are doing this by equating the permit to purchase with background checks and suggesting that if the permits are repealed, background checks will be repealed as well.

But repealing a state-issued permit to purchase has nothing to do with federal background checks.

In North Carolina’s present system, potential handgun purchasers have to acquire a permit to purchase from a local sheriff before they are allowed to go buy a handgun. State Reps. Jacqueline Shaffer (R-Mecklenburg) and John Faircloth (R-Guilford) believe a streamlined system—where North Carolinians don’t have to get a permit to exercise their Second Amendment rights—is a better approach, so they have put forward House Bill 562.

HB 562 would get the state government out of the way so North Carolinians can buy handguns without first asking the state for permission via the permit to purchase requirement. And HB 562 would in no way impact federal background checks, which every North Carolinian will still have to pass every time they buy a handgun from a retail outlet.

Background checks will still be required. Period. But, instead of going down to the sheriff’s office, waiting in line, then finally getting that permit (I’ve had to do this myself twice), and possibly getting denied because they said so, this streamlines the process of exercising our 2nd Amendment Right. If liberals do not like that, then they should attempt to get the 2nd changed or repealed.

Bob Owens notes something interesting

The pistol permit was introduced into North Carolina law in the Jim Crow-era South, when the NC Democrat Party and the Ku Klux Klan were one in the same.

The intent of the permitting process was brutal and simple: Klansmen didn’t want to get shot while cross-burning and lynching, and so they wanted to ensure that blacks in Jim Crow North Carolina didn’t have the legal right to own handguns. The permits had to be applied for in person so that local sheriffs could deny permits based on race.

That this same permitting scheme still applies in 2015 is a travesty of justice.

Nothing is done with said permits after they are processed. Are liberal anti-gunnites, including Bloomberg’s group, against making it easier for law abiding Blacks to obtain a firearm?

    “If liberals do not like that, then they should attempt to get the 2nd changed or repealed.”

    You misunderstand the Bill of Rights, the Second Amendment. It is *outside of the authority of those who serve within our governments – state and federal. It is a Natural Right that comes with every living thing’s right to defend itself from attack.

    Add to that the Nuremberg Trails (Nazi Germany) which made registration of Americans for anything, particularly owning, buying,selling, trading, etc of weapons of ANY type unlawful here in America because history shows that they have been 100% used to go home to home and take weapons from the people, followed by democide (death by government). It was used to sort out the “undesirables”, etc. It makes it much easier to find the people when their information is right at hand.

    It is also important to realize that those that serve within our governments are NOT “our governments”, but were put into place to carry out specific duties that were put into writing and are the contracts that they are under, backed up by a solemn Oath that makes them PERSONALLY responsible for their actions (that is why the enlisted can be, and have been, held accountable for following unlawful orders). It is at least one felony to break the Oath depending. It can also be **Treason. Any injury or threat of, to property or persons can also be ***Terrorism

    Constitution of the United States of America, Second Amendment: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

    * Cockrum v. State: “The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out of the general powers of government. A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power”

    * Bliss v. Commonwealth:“Arms restrictions – even concealed weapons bans – are unconstitutional, since arms bearing is an individual right and the legislature may not restrict any aspect of such a right.”

    * Nunn vs. State:’The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the milita, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right”.

    *Andrews v. State explains, this “passage from Story, shows clearly that this right was intended, as we have maintained in this opinion, and was guaranteed to, and to be exercised and enjoyed by the citizen as such, and not by him as a soldier, or in defense solely of his political rights.”

    Justice Robert H. Jackson (Chief of Counsel for the United States, Nuremberg Trials – Nazi Germany): “It is not the function of the government to keep the citizen from falling into error; it is the function of the citizen to keep the government from falling into error”.

    ** Treason – (It is in America, actions against the people and the US Constitution. Though it may make its passage through those that SERVE within our governments – state and federal. http://www.shastadefense.com/Dare-Call-It-Treason-21.pdf

    *** Terrorism – 28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

    it is not only “That this same permitting scheme still applies in 2015 is a travesty of justice”; it is Treason against the people who cannot carry out their Constitutionally assigned duties as the Militia. Remember that those that serve within our governments were forbidden by the contracts (Constitutions) and laws that they are under to:

    — Keep a standing (permanent) military
    — Create governmental professional law enforcement agencies – state and federal

    They are REQUIRED to use the Militias of the several states; and the Militias are required to, and can be called upon to enforce the laws of the union and to defend the nation while the military is formed – if needed – from the laready trained ranks of the Militia (usually).

    The Basics of “Who” (are the Militia): All able-bodied Americans plus those lawfully allowed to be here – excluding “public servants” – from age 18 through age 60 are the Militia of the several states.

    US Constitution, Article I, Section. 8, Clause 11: “To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water”.

    This is using private citizens in their own privately owned crafts to defend the USA and her people, this is using the Militia.

    Clause 12 specifies that there shall be no military beyond that of two years. The Militia of each state is charged with our nations defense here within the USA until and unless the congress has declared war and a “standing” military is raised:

    “To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years”.

    Clause 15: “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel invasions.

    This clause is very straightforward also. The militia of each state is taxed with the defense of the USA and her people, not just with the defense of their state; and they are to be armed with weapons that can repel any invasions bearing modern weapons of war. Congress is required to provide those military grade weapons for the militias in Clause 16. Those weapons (lawfully) are not to be sold or given to foreign nations or entities, nor to foreign terrorists (rebels), nor to governmental professional law enforcement agencies; they are lawfully and under contract to give them to the Militias so that they can be trained and ready to defend the states, the nation if need be. This was done to make it so that America could never become a police state.

    Clause 16: “To provide for organizing, ARMING, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress”.

    Thomas Jefferson, 1st inaugural, explained that: “a well-disciplined militia” is “our best reliance in peace and for the first moments of war, till regulars may relieve them” and also a guarantee of “the supremacy of the civil over the military authority; [and] economy in the public expense.”

    The Militia has as its constitutionally assigned duties to:

    — Enforce the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution,
    — Enforce and keep the “Laws of the Union” (which are constitutional laws ONLY),
    — Protect the country against all enemies both domestic and foreign, and
    — “to suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.

    The US Constitution guarantees to each state its own “Republican form of government”. It is every state’s Militia that is the ONLY Constitutionally assigned force to “counter Invasions” and “Domestic Violence” within our nation. Governors and the US Congress can call up the Militias of the several states when needed, and that is when the president becomes the Commander in Chief, at all other times except when the Militia and/or the Military is “called into the actual service of the United States” – they are NOT the CoC.

    Article 2, Section 2: “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, WHEN CALLED INTO THE ACTUAL SERVICE OF THE UNITED STATES”.

    Everyone seems to forget that one like they always seem to forget that it is the US Constitution and all that is IN PURSUANCE THEREOF IT that is the supreme LAW of this land.

    So now you should understand the laws of our nation and why registration is unlawful; but is still being done under “color of law”, pretend laws. It is the misuse of power made possible only because wrongdoer is seen as having the authority to do so because of their position they are occupying at the time.

    Cal you seem to think that ALL citizens have the right including felons and children. Is that correct ?
