Kamala Harris Loses Second Amendment Case

Thu, Sep 11, 2014 - 4:11pm

I know its 9/11. But, for something different than a retrospective comment about this significant date, or risking opening up a discussion among us tin-foil wearing conspiracy theorists, how about something, say, explosive in a different way, like a FIREARM discussion.

<pun intended; just trying to keep up with my friend Dr. J, who did a brilliant comedic post and from which I am still chuckling>

So, let's shoot the breeze for a little bit . . . <pun, get it?>

For those of us USA citizens who believe that the Bill of Rights means what it says, then, the latest ruling out of our socialist experiment known as California, is a breath of fresh air.

Specifically, in what can only be expressed as pure amazement, a federal court judge in California struck down California’s 10 day waiting period imposed upon gun owners. The Court rejected the overreaching waiting period on existing gun owners, decimating each and every one of the socialists’ arguments. It is truly inspiring to see that a federal judge gets it right, and categorically rejects the trite reasoning often advanced by the left in supporting gun bans, and other anti-gun arguments.

It makes me want to purchase another Sig Sauer! Hooray!

Anyhow, there are a few blogs out there, like this one


where the court filings are available on-line and are free. [As an attorney, I have a PACER account, and can get them for a very small fee, but others have to create an account, log in, etc.]

Take a look at the Findings of Fact and Conclusions of Law, here:


One may even be a little, say, inspired, by what is written there. I know I am.

What this means for now is not much, see here:


But, the machine and its minions are no doubt busy churning up an appeal, or trying to dangle money and favors in front of the California super majority democratic legislators to entice them to legislate a work-around.

From the tea leaves, I can distill no real argument that Kamala

can create that avoids the ruling by this courageous judge.

Maybe she can continue her supplicant ways and get good ol' Barry involved?

Or maybe, this wizard can figure out a work around:

After all, the Constitution is a "living, breathing document," right, Gov. Moonbeam?

Remember too, that one democratic legislator, who strongly pushed for gun control, and restrictions, was himself implicated in a pay to play scheme by the Chinese Mafia.


Things are not always what they seem to be on the surface. Anyone who has been reading tfmr for awhile knows this.

Stay tuned on the developments for this. It is a MAJOR victory for us Second Amendment folks. In summation, I believe the judge’s decision will stand, and that the 10 day waiting period for lawful gun owners will be eliminated once and for all. This should signify the high-water mark for those gun grabbers, but who knows, perhaps there will be another Sandy Hook MOPE operation?

False Flag advocates, here: https://beforeitsnews.com/alternative/2014/06/obama-officials-confirm-sandy-hook-was-false-flag-and-no-children-died-2976710.html

Debunkers, here: https://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/01/23/this-is-theblazes-point-by-point-sandy-hook-conspiracy-theory-debunk/

Remember, that when the left cannot impose a new law, or cannot get a law or scheme imposed by the courts, the only thing they have left is a MOPE campaign based on emotion, or outright propaganda disguised as entertainment:


Watch for it and be not surprised that you heard it here long before it ever happens and gets splashed across the news pages and on TV.

Now, back to the fantastically joyful precious metals price explosion <sarc>.

Where were you on March 24, 1999

Working for a DC law firm that working with several representatives to challenge the legality of Clinton's actions. However, the Republican leadership in both houses shut down the effort as much as they could, because they wanted the next president (they expected a Republican) to have the same freedom to violate the Constitution.

@GL re: Operation Noble Anvil, 1999

Incidentally, I happen to remember EXACTLY where I was. Sitting in the middle of absolutely nowhere, in a cafeteria full of working stiffs, about a third of them ex-Yugoslav or (then) current Yugoslav citizens. Regardless of their specific ethnicity (and there were many who had just a few years prior served in armies on opposite sides of various fronts), ALL were outraged, weeping, fuming. If some of the non-Serbs felt schadenfreude, no one there showed it. It was quite a somber experience -- everyone else there was also a non-US national, and their reactions were comparable, if less personally affected.

About a month later, I happened across a street performing band (Peruvian? Chilean? L. American in any case) on the East Coast. I dropped a small note into their guitar case, requesting El Condor Pasa if they, or any of their friends/family, were from a country that had been bombed by the US in the last decade or so. They played an improv set on that musical theme for about 20 minutes...

@ Cal law

Great Post ! One thing I must mention. That stainless Sig with rosewood handles is a pretty thing but, it could get you shot or even killed. Stainless steel, just like chrome, will reflect light and give your position away. Not so good if people are throwing lead in your direction.

Thank you SilverRunNW. I too

Thank you SilverNW. I too found his video interesting, and the letter a powerful message of the same man.

@Safety Dan


A very good post and especially the video of Igor Strelkov (Igor Ivanovich). His comments on the "5th Column" are intriguing. Also interesting is the comment from "Balazs from Hungary" on the Vineyard of The Saker posting claiming Putin as the leader of the "5th Column".

@Colonel Angus Firearm Sales in NY

They got that covered here in NY with the good old SAFE Act. No more face to face sales of firearms. All must be done by an FFL dealer. Violation of this "law" merits extreme penalties.

To those who are stacking .22 Thunderbolt ammo, be careful. This stuff does not cycle well in all .22 rifles. Some brands feed it through cleanly, some jam constantly with it. I had a Ruger 10/22 that would jam every few shots with that stuff, but would feed fine in other rifles. Test your rifle/pistol with it before stacking 1000's of rounds.

to Hammer

The guy Jim Jeffries is funny, but his point about having to cater to the lowest element is EXACTLY the problem we have in the States. It's why we have so much welfare in this country...we have to take care of the least. And we should...as individuals and not collectively at the point of a, well, steak knife, maybe? It's why we have Obamacare, we're falling behind all the other countries in terms of education, etc.

The third segment of Atlas Shrugged got released at midnight. Maybe we should all see all three segments. I would suggest that we should all read the book, but so many of us went to public schools that...well...let's just say there's a reason that my kids are homeschooled.
