Call to Contact: The Turncoats are Coming, The Turncoats are Coming

Well lately, and thankfully so, the radical left in their panic have been exposing themselves, their hypocrisy, and their crimes left and right. However, many of us have often wondered, are our elected officials on the right just a different side of the same coin? Do any of them stand in even the most basic of terms, for the United States Constitution? A Constitution that they've sworn an oath to uphold and defend (see Article VI U.S. Constitution).

After years and years of hearing every excuse in the book on why they don't get anything substantial done for "we the people", here is yet another attack. This attack on our supreme law of the land has been launched by the right.

A U.S. House of Representatives Republican right here in Florida, Carlos Curbelo, has co-sponsored a bill that could very quickly put an end to the 2nd Amendment as we know it.

HR3999: https://curbelo.house.gov/uploadedfiles/finalbumpstockban.pdf

Carlos Curbelo is a Republican representing the 26th Congressional District of Florida (the Homestead area and all of the Keys). Congressman Curbelo worked with Massachusetts democrat Seth Moulten. Together they've devised a 3 page bill that will ban "rate increasing devices". Ironically, Seth Moulten served four tours in Iraq as a Marine Corps infantry officer, including two as an infantry platoon commander and two as a Special Assistant to General David Petraeus. Ignorance of firearms should be no excuse when it comes to Moulten, not to mention that he's taken the oath at least twice.

The bill at first glance and with no critical thinking applied, looks harmless, innocuous, and to some may even look like reasonable gun control (cringe).

Note: Gun control in the United States by law (Article VI) is unlawful. Even the most simple minded of individuals can scan the Federalist Papers and read the 2nd Amendment and know beyond any shadow of any doubt why it is there and that it is not to be infringed AT ALL EVER. Ignorance (or willful ignorance) of the law is no excuse, especially to a law maker who swears an oath to the supreme law.

At the time of research for this article, 9 other Republican turncoats have shown up to support this bill.

This bill would ban the possession of "rate increasing devices". Get caught with one and you catch a felony and up to 5 years in prison! Caught with what? A "device" that is identified as a "rate increasing device". It doesn’t name bump fire stocks, it just states "rate increasing device". Now this could be a Geissele 3-gun trigger, it could be anything because it’s not defined in the bill. Possessing one of these undefined devices, 5 years in prison. Possessing a part of one of these undefined devices, 5 years in prison.

There are also other turn-coats out there with their own bills. For example, a democrat Dina Titus (D-NV), who is working hand in hand with turncoat Mike Fitzpatrick (R-PA). This one proposes a 10 year prison sentence for possessing a "rate increasing device". Dina Titus is also a co-sponsor of another bill "To prohibit the transfer or possession of large capacity ammunition feeding devices, and for other purposes", cleverly titled the "Keep Americans Safe Act".

So what’s increased rate of fire? No one knows. What’s the standard rate of fire for a semi-automatic firearm? No one knows.

Should any of these unlawful bills pass, then the BATF gets to arbitrarily decide what they consider a rate increasing device, or what the acceptable rate of fire is.

Bills like these, if we allow them to be passed, will strip us over time, or even perhaps immediately of semi-automatic firearms.

Consider this: One rate increasing device is given to us at birth. It’s called a trigger finger. Some may recall a little trick where you can put a finger through the trigger and hook it into a pants pocket or belt loop, which then can make a semi-automatic rifle fire continually such as with a bump fire stock. There are other means of accomplishing the same thing... all without the use of any devices other than the ones that you were born with.

With this arbitrary law, it’s completely open ended on what regulations the BATF could pass. For example: A trigger must have a certain length of travel. A certain length of travel for the trigger reset. It can’t be any less than a 10 lb pull, etc. They could at this point just effectively make numbers up.

Let’s be clear. The rate of fire increaser is you, or perhaps your trigger. The firearm fires as fast as you can pull the trigger. Imagine you just put a new Geissele 3 lb trigger in your rifle. You’ve just increased the rate of fire with a device. Too short of a trigger pull. Too short of a reset. Now you’re in prison for 5-10 years and magically, contrary to the Constitution, when you are finally out of prison and have lost everything, presto, you can no longer legally possess a firearm. I believe the goal here is to ban self-loading semi-automatic firearms.

After the recent mass shooting in Vegas, the blood hadn’t even dried before the unlawful law making oath breakers and elected turn-coat enemies of our Republic jumped on the opportunity to not let this crisis go to waste.

These bills are nothing more than another clever attack on the 2nd Amendment, and we cannot let this stand. It is our duty to light up their phones and emails and let them know we will not stand for their unlawful behavior against our supreme law of the land and the rights of "we the people" who placed them in their offices.

We must contact these enemies of liberty immediately, tell them "absolutely not", remind them of their oath, and hold them accountable! This is no time to sleep. We’ve got to get more active and stay more diligent!

I would argue that our Republic has gotten to the place where we’ve even allowed an unconstitutional agency such as the BATF to be created or exist in the first place, because, as Kriss Ann Hall says, "we’ve become lazy in luxury", and lulled into complacency by entertainment.

Understand, these people are relentless. They are "not" going to stop at bump fire stocks. This is just the first volley… or perhaps the setup volley for the goal point.

These misnamed representatives know good and well that there are no laws that can stop gun crime, and that even a total gun ban won't stop gun crime. Even Dianne Feinstein in a Meet the Press interview, when asked what gun laws could have prevented Vegas, stated "I’m not sure there is any set of laws that could have prevented it". Yes, she speaks in improper English. When asked a very similar questions on Face the Nation, Feinstein stated "No".

No matter how reasonable they try to tell us that these unlawful laws are, what they really want is to disarm the American people. End game, end of story. Feinstein was quoted many years ago concerning the assault weapons ban, stating "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them. Mr and Mrs America, turn em all in, I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here."

This bill is not just about giving up bump fire stocks. Any serious shooter laughs at bump fire stocks and the people who use them. This is not what they’re going for. Go read the bill. Then we must light up the phone lines, and at the soonest possible moment vote these enemies of our Republic out of office. Funny thing is, there is compelling evidence that bump fire stocks weren't even used to perpetrate the mass killings in Vegas. Chances are strong it was a M240 machine gun, which is already unlawfully illegal.

We can’t be complacent. We can’t believe President Trump is going to save us from these unlawful law makers. We must be diligent and we must take action.

It’s a sad time in our Nation when AntiFa can show up with mass numbers and raise hell to oppose a made up enemy that doesn’t exist, and to actively attempt to subvert our Constitutional Republic, but we the American people as a whole can’t be bothered to take a half hour to show up on our congressman or congresswoman’s doorstep or even pick up the phone. No longer can we allow them to boil the rat one degree at a time.

Call, email, show up.

In closing, we all need to also take every opportunity to not only hold our elected officials accountable to their oath of office and the supreme law of the land, we need to seek opportunities to first educate ourselves, then FIRMLY educate them.

It amazes me how they always tend to blather the phrase "common sense gun laws".

Common sense to me is, if people are being murdered, encourage the American masses to arm themselves and get training. That'll put an end to mass murders with a quickness. But it seems Washington isn't interested in facts, and willfully chooses to ignore their very own FBI crime statistics.

Common sense to me is, stop creating government sanctioned/imposed kill zones where the masses are disarmed by those law makers who are supposed to look out for the best interest of the people.

Common sense to me is for law makers to obey the supreme law of the land, honor their oath, and read the words that are written in plain English. It doesn't need interpretation. Just as with any other contract law (the constitution is a compact), when interpreting the contract, you look to the words and intent of those who drafted it. Those are easily found in the Federalist and Anti-Federalist papers. And if definitions are required, consult one of the original Webster’s dictionaries. As a constitutionalist, Noah Webster wrote it so that knuckleheads like those who have setup life camp in the Washington district of criminals didn't start redefining words to suit their own corrupt desires.

Article VI:

"...This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

Ammendment II:

"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."
