Contained in a letter written to Burges Ball (1794)…

“For can any thing be more absurd, more arrogant, or more pernicious to the peace of Society, than for self created bodies, forming themselves into permanent Censors, and under the shade of Night in a conclave, resolving that acts of Congress which have undergone the most deliberate, and solemn discussion by the Representatives of the people, chosen for the express purpose, and bringing with them from the different parts of the Union the sense of their Constituents, endeavouring as far as the nature of the thing will admit, to form that will into Laws for the government of the whole; I say, under these circumstances, for a self created, permanent body, (for no one denies the right of the people to meet occasionally, to petition for, or to remonstrate against, any Act of the Legislature &ca) to declare that this act is unconstitutional, and that act is pregnant of mischief; and that all who vote contrary to their dogmas are actuated by selfish motives, or under foreign influence; nay in plain terms are traiters to their Country, is such a stretch of arrogant presumption as is not to be reconciled with laudable motives”

Kinda shoots down the whole debunked sheriff idea being promoted by the founding fathers, doesn’t it?

Delaware Liberal has running commentary here…… 

There was a very strange pamphlet that showed up in Sussex County, sanctioned by the REPUBLICAN sheriff down there..   Here is the quote…

“PARTICIPATE  IN  THE  TRAINING  OF  THE  SHERIFF’S  POSSE……”

Fact: Sheriffs in Delaware are not law enforcement officers. They are paper pushers. Their only duty is to serve court papers such as divorce proceedings and the auction of houses… By law, they are not allowed to form “posse’s”

I can remember however, a long, long time ago, when rural people who didn’t agree with Federal guidelines that was being imposed upon them, would arm themselves, gather in the middle of the night under a certain tree, or a bend of the road, and ride out to perform their own particular brand of justice.

We called them the Klu Klux Klan…… Is Sheriff Christopher trying to revive them…..

One of the untold stories of the great Dornier escapade in Southern California, involves the tiny firm of L&L Enterprises, a winery dispensary sitting off the main drag of Big Bear Lake just north east of Los Angeles….

Someone had ID’d Dornier entering a building across from the command post, and had called the police…. As the very first sheriff’s deputies arrived,,, Ernie Lopez and Greg LaValle rush out of L&L Enterprises which was next door to the location, with vital information…  Dornier had put what looked like guns into a SUV and had headed north out of town up into the wilderness….

On this tip, the entire operation shifted its focus and fanned out over the north side of town, using infrared heat scanning to try and find his hideout…..

Days later, he was discovered holed up in the house right where he’d been reported!….

The mess could have been taken care of in a timely fashion, except for the delaying action caused by Lopez and Lavelle… forever now dubbed L&L Enterprises…

By an almost uncanny coincidence, the same thing is being done here in Delaware by people with unbelievably, the exact same name… Ernie Lopez and Greg Lavelle…. both are members of the Republican Party;  both are in the Delaware Senate….

What they have done is introduce two bills to throw confusion into the Senate, so the necessary bills to help curb mass murders like Alan Lanza, do not get passed…. There is a bill in Delaware’s Senate to renew mandatory background checks for everyone who buys a gun….

Any weakening of this legislation, changes that bill into one renewing mandatory background checks for everyone who is not a criminal.  Criminals get to get their guns without being checked…

And that is the point of L&L Enterprises… They are pretending as did their namesakes in California, to appear to be good citizens helping to do some good, when in reality, their actions cause the exact opposite….

The idea behind background checks is that if everyone good undergoes a background check, those who don’t can be deemed as being bad…  What a mandatory background check does, is absolutely nothing but identify to law enforcement in a timely fashion (before they get shot) who is safe, and who is unsafe….

Allowing holes in the system, so criminals can get weapons and not be traced, is pointless.  Without it being mandatory, meaning everyone has to undergo it if they wish to purchase a gun means the whole bill is pointless….  It means criminals can get guns easier with the bill than without the bill.

We register every single car… If a car shows up in a body shop and the owner of that body shop sees it hit a person, and guesses it is the weapon of a hit and run, we can use the VIN number, and trace that car back to it’s last registered owner.  From him, we can determine where the car went, interview that person, and follow the trail…There is a very good possibility we can find the hit and run driver and bring him to justice… But if we never registered cars, we’d never be able to do that….

Now registering cars is common sense.  But let’s venture for a minute and speculate that say Pennsylvania under Corbett, didn’t register cars… “Forget about it,” he chimed when he took office….  Now all those cars we see with PA tags, effectively have no registered owners.  The hit and run car now has PA tags stolen from somewhere, and is sitting in the body shop, obviously used in a crime, but is now a dead investigative end…..

L&L Enterprises are trying to muck up the works as did Tom Corbett.  When we should be debating how awesomely mandatory background checks will give us a tool to use against crime, they are floating bills that preserve the potholes in  the road to Public Safety which we need to have filled…..

Others can guess at their nefarious motives, just have those in California been guessing  for a month….  All I’m saying is their bills of distraction, are very harmful to us Delawareans trying to ensure a Newtown type shooting does not occur here…….

L&L Enterprises…. Beware…..

Did you read the News Journal in depth article about how much damage the Sequester is going to cause Delaware?  About how people now, because of a vengeful and traitorous party has gummed up Congress on purpose, that now American servicemen are going to be taking a 20% pay cut?

Are you one?  And if not, living here in Delaware, do you know someone who is in the National Guard?  The  Air Force?  Will they stop coming into your business now, in order to make sure they can still keep their house?

How much sales will you lose,  1%?  2%?  5%?  10%? 25%?  50%?  75%?  95%?    Will you also go broke for the same reason?  Because of a vengeful traitorous party that gummed up Congress on purpose, that now, American servicemen are going to be taking a 20% pay cut?

Everyone knows the deal.

“You didn’t vote for Romney; now we are going to f*ck you up….”

Billionaires are sooooooooooooopoooooooooooo much more important than you………

Btw, you can register yourself tomorrow as a Democrat or Independent here…..

On Saturday March 2nd, Thomas Shellenberger wrote a piece that the News Journal despite it’s better judgment, allowed to be published…. The headline was the boring and is so common lately, it is usually panned: Disarming the law abiding is not sound gun control.… Why is this inane?

Because it is not even part of the equation. To put it into proper perspective, it was as if the proper answer to preventing  Newtown’s shooting, was that we needed machines emitting secret rays that make guns jam up as soon as they are brought on premises; it is that far out there…. This opinion piece is simply aimed at pandering fear over having imaginary entities football-tackle gun owners and steal their guns; and nothing else. And by now three months after Dec. 14th, no one believes it anymore.

I can remember when people believed aliens were dissected at Roswell. (And for all I know they very well could be). But,…. whether they were or not, it has not impacted my life one way or another… Likewise, the giant controversy that swept up Mike Castle in its eddy (whether Obama was born in Kenya), was nothing but a giant distraction designed to gin up ignorant people to hold out the unrealistic hope that such could be true and a non-black would then become President… Again, it had nothing to to with any practical purpose and only had one effect: to make every one its believers appears as the stupidest, most ridiculous, idiotic, imbecilic, deranged, dumb-ass, and incompetent human beings ever to exist on this planet. Shellenberger seems to be pushing the same kind of argument.   Here is why.

  • No one cares about law abiding citizens; get this: they are not even a part of the equation.
  • The criminal justice system of Delaware had nothing to do with the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.
  • No law abiding citizen will be disarmed by the anticipated plans soon to be put in place by Biden and Markell.
  • Having a No-gun rule around young children is extremely good common sense.
  • If the police want new sales of assault weapons banned, who are you to want otherwise, .. a criminal?
  • Evidence supports the ’94 assault weapons ban could possibly have had a positive effect on decreasing mass killings.

Those tired arguments put to rest, here is exactly why we do need more regulations upon guns.

  • There is not enough regulation at the moment.
  • It is too easy for the wrong people to get their hands on a gun.
  • The NRA has purposefully made tracking guns as difficult as possible to enable criminals to shoot people with impunity.
  • There is now less level of responsibility involved with owning a gun, than having a 16 year old driving a car.

Then there is this very tired old line…. yawn….

“until we fix the criminal justice system so the laws already on the books are enforced and provide a meaningful deterrent, passage of any new laws only interfere with law abiding citizens….”

oh, oh… I must have dozed off there a second…

That is exactly the problem.  There are not enough laws…  Granted, there are enough laws in some places, but right next to those places, are spots where there are no laws against purchasing any weapons at all.   Chicago has a store across its county line that sells 10% of all confiscated guns acquired by Chicago law enforcement.  Everyone of those is sold legally.  California has Nevada, where a very high rate of confiscated weapons come from. Mississippi has no laws.  There is an Iron Pipeline it is called that funnels guns bought in Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia right up 95 into New York City…   EVERYONE OF THESE GUNS WAS BOUGHT LEGALLY…..

So how can you enforce laws on the books when there are no laws on the books?  Duh.

Crash. (The argument of the NRA and Schellenberger just shattered on the floor….)

Here is what we do need… Simply put, and no legal person has to worry about a thing…..

  • A national background check  that pinpoints every known gun, to an owner who is responsible for that weapon.
  • Requirement that stolen guns get reported ASAP or owner is charged with conspiracy in crime he was accomplice to.
  • As requested by police,  a ban on the sales of new assault rifles.
  • A ban on high capacity clips.
  • Liability insurance up to $1 million on every gun owned.  The insurance conglomerates can figure out the price and deductions.

Obviously any sane gun owner has nothing to fear.  So why are gun owners so frightened?  Are all the weapons in their possession bought at shows and are formerly stolen and they don’t want anyone looking at the registration number to find out?

Yes. Of most of the gun owners I know, yes, they are very worried about this.  That is exactly why they are so kooky over this common sense legislation that will both protect their 2nd Amendment rights and our right to live without fear of gun nuts on the loose….

  • Why is it every time we’ve had a mass killing, the perpetrator has been someone aligned to Conservative values?
  • Why is it that we have to wait through one week’s vacation to have a Secretary of Defense confirmed?
  • Why is it that no attempt is being made to avoid the cutting of  700,000 jobs?
  • Why is it that Conservatives are holding out from giving their citizens affordable Healthcare, when the benefits are obvious to all?
  • Why is it that the defense for having weapons of mass destruction, is so they will be available to be used upon the United States Government?
  • Why is it that Conservatives have recently come out in support of rape, whether it is to women, boys, or babies?

The reason is because they lost. Just like a divorced husband who trashes his house just before he has to turn it over to his ex; just like Saddam Hussein setting fire to Kuwait’s oil fields as his army retreats, Republicans are saying a big “fuck you” to the United States of America. Instead of realizing they are in the wrong, they have taken the approach that as long as they still have one foot in office, they will do every thing in their power to destroy America, so it is worth nothing to those who we elected to serve us in their place…

In less than 20 months, we can vote these Republicans out completely…. Just 20 months, that is 80 weeks, just 560 days, and we can be rid of them completely….

This must be your goal. America has a hopeful future and has many opportunities just waiting to be grasped. Clean out every Republican, and prosperity will return.

Seriously, would you invest in a country run like Saddam’s Iraq? Neither would I. Let’s get rid of the nuts, and let’s rebuild America.

Not really.  But think.  If the NRA had helped us keep guns out of the hands of criminals, instead of proposing that guns could be sold and bought by anyone with no questions asked….

This wouldn’t have happened.

Call your Senators and Congressmen.  Tell them to list the NRA as a terrorist group.

It might make their day!

It will save his state money. Lots, and lots of money.

Conservatives cry “Foul” and vow to unseat him in the next election….

Did you get that? The Tea Party is going to unseat the previous Tea Party candidate because he is saving his state lots and lots of money……

Conservatives are nothing but a pathetic jokes anymore. Ok, that last statement is not entirely true. I’m in contact with a lot of people who are awesome but just happen to have conservative leanings who don’t feel the same way as the extreme radical fringe of their party does…..

So let me rephrase that….

Conservatives “who aren’t silent”,…. are nothing but a pathetic jokes anymore…

Congress to Wayne LaPierre, head of the National Rifle Association. This was just days after gun hecklers interrupted the father of one of the slain boys of Newtown, by screaming “2nd Amendment! 2nd Amendment! Gun Rights!”

It was horrible, tasteless, and crude, the work of thugs. But I’m glad they did, because it set up the perfect comeback…..

If guns are so important to you, that you will miss them so terribly when they get taken away, I’m sure you can understand the grief of those of us who also had something extremely precious taken away. Your guns (assault rifles) killed these children. When you can give us all our children back; we’ll give your assault weapons back…

I have a Constitutional right to raise my child; that got taken away. That is a billion times more of a right, than you will ever have for any weapon that has only one purpose, to kill people by throwing so many pieces of metal towards them that maybe one of them will hit.

America has every right to ban assault rifles as well as high capacity clips. It is legal. It is smart. It is Constitutional. It is inevitable.
