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>.

Excellent Cal!

Thanks for the interesting read, CL! Sounds encouraging for sure.

Who in their right mind would want any restrictions on the freedom to be armed asap, in a world as violent as ours(and getting more so by the day)? Please keep us in the loop on this front!

For those interested, the newest installments of the Silver Noose series are up in the Truth HQ.

In part 3 I tear the precious metals mining sector a new *ahem* orifice.


Part 4 deals with the growing realization that a real, free-market in silver is more fanciful than a zebra-striped unicorn in a lederhosen...and how that realization is affecting humanity's psyche, and thus its silver demand.


On days like today, just live your lives, go out for a hike with the family, ya know? Turn off your computer screens, and don't stress out. With the banks out in full force, it's important to remember on days like today, that the necks being slit are their own. Til next time, guys. ​

Now for the read.

Edit in: It about high time California has some of its illegal firearms laws are shot down. I caught this decision a while back and showed it to my son who is a firearms owner as well as myself. In California the 10 day waiting period is a 'cooling off period' so a gun buyer who is all worked up over something and has purchased the firearm to use to solve this problem has to wait for the 10 day period so they can overcome their emotional reason for the purchase.

As a current gun owner I already have the means in hand to resolve any issues with a firearm if I wish, but should not need to wait to purchase another gun. Thankfully most of us who believe in self reliance don't operate on emotions but facts and logic.

This is a wonderful decision and a great step in beginning the clean up the myriad of California firearms laws that make little or no sense except to those who proposed them. We now need to work on the 'safe gun list' law that costs manufacturers lots of money and must supply many samples (5 I believe) of each configuration/color/size/barrel length of handgun they wish to sell in California for testing by the California DOJ.

Nice subject and we all hope judicial decisions such as this will continue to abide by the law rather than emotion and ideology. Thanks CL

California May Issue CCW laws.

Recently the Orange County Sheriff has began issuing for the reason of Self Defense instead of requiring more specific reasons for the need/desire to carry. The may issue laws in California are very discretionary and differing amongst the county sheriffs who are the primary issuers. This occurred because of another decision in the courts in favor of the citizens rights. I believe this was from a law suit in San Diego County I believe. If we can overcome these unconstitutional laws in California we should be able to eventually overcome them elsewhere as well.

A lot of second amendment cases will be lost going forward:

The courts are doing nothing more than the bidding of a fascist state, and the agenda is clearly to disarm the populace.

First, they have an interest in making gun ownership seem so dangerous, that outlawing it might actually be acceptable by most.

President Obama has done more for gun sales than any other president, I think they fully intend for us patriots to be a major factor in a depopulation agenda whereby all of us little people just shoot each other to death, making the governments job much easier in the end.

Since the police departments have been armed with military grade armor, bulletproof vests, armored personnel carriers, they are not particularly worried about private handguns, the projectiles will literally bounce off.

I know it's a radical strategy, and I know that the Liberal Lala land known as California seriously wishes all guns would disappear, I think the feds have a different agenda, they want the people to disappear also.

That's going to require all whole lot of guns going off simultaneously.

I'm sure they have a plan for that.

For example, what do you think will happen when none of the water faucets work anymore?

What will happen when the EBT cards don't work anymore?

What will happen when there's no food in the stores?

What will happen when the dollar becomes worthless?

What will happen when they realize all their high priced property is worthless?

These are just a few examples, we are all aware of many more on the immediate horizon.

California is a powder keg ready to explode, and it will be made an example.

Makes me wonder if we still have 10 days before all the Californians will need to protect themselves from each other.

I'm not opposed to the court ruling, I am just very suspicious of its timing and motives.

Start stacking your ammo now, It will soon be unavailable, along with gold, silver, food, water, and cash.

“The end of the great Keynesian experiment” will be a bloody mess.

Exactly as intended.

Gun laws

It's a nice victory but not nearly enough. All gun laws violate the 2nd amendment. Background checks, CCW permits, permits or licenses of any kind... because they all require you to ask permission of government before exercising your 2nd Amendment protected right. Asking permission makes it a privilege, not a right. That means government can take that privilege away as well. MO is getting better... they passed a State Constitutional Amendment and are now working on overriding the governor's veto on arming teachers. They still have to repeal their permit to carry law... it violates both the 2nd and the new State amendment based on my reading of it. @Mr Fix , the police forces are outnumbered by a massive number (something like 248 cops per 100,000 citizens). If a shooting war breaks out, many cops will stay home to protect their own families.

TJeffson re: shooting war . . .

" If a shooting war breaks out, many cops will stay home to protect their own families."


Agreed. And, their armored vehicles must be stored, refueled, driven, maintained, reloaded, etc. When at war, always get the enemy at their most vulnerable spots, the supply chain. Drivers, ammunition, parts and fuel are supplies.

Let's hope that the police decide to side with the people, and not the elites, so we don't have to test this out live.

It's getting late

It's getting late in the day, and I have yet to hear about any ISIS or other group conducting an attack on us either domestically or overseas. Are they saving all their ammo for later; or did our own MOPE organizers drop the ball and fail to perform? Surely they saved place on the evening news for something - where is it?

@ TJeffson

"@Mr Fix , the police forces are outnumbered by a massive number (something like 248 cops per 100,000 citizens). If a shooting war breaks out, many cops will stay home to protect their own families." Fully automatic high-caliber weaponry fired from fully armored personnel carriers and tanks will equalize that equation somewhat. You are right, some law enforcement will go home to protect their families, but if martial law is declared, the people inside such a rolling armada may not be American at all, as United Nations troops will most likely be used as “peacekeepers”. Even the Army training manual describes firing on unarmed citizen protesters. When all hell breaks loose, you do not want to be anywhere near it.
