Mittens, Santorum and Gingrich all have problems with Americans exercising a full and complete Second Amendment based on their past actions and positions. Only Ron Paul would keep his hands off our cherished Bill of Rights and fully uphold our United States Constitution.
From the Massachusetts Constitution;
"Article XVII. The people have a right to keep and to bear arms for the common defence. And as, in time of peace, armies are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be maintained without the consent of the legislature; and the military power shall always be held in an exact subordination to the civil authority, and be governed by it."
Be warned, their State (Commonwealth I guess is correct) Constitution is one of the most amended ones I have ever read, although I saw no links or references to amendments regarding this article.
Good to know. I read a week or so ago that Ohio is considering changing their "must notify immediately" rule thanks, in part, to the incident involving an abusive LEO threatening to kill a guy.
Short version: driver was pulled over mistakenly. When driver attempted to notify, several times, that he was carrying, LEO shouted him down each time telling him to shut up. When weapon was found, LEO threatened to blow driver's head off for failing to notify. It was all on video. The LEO was just very bad at his job.
I think a more objective view is in order.
Montana is a "Shall Issue", "No Retreat", Open Carry and we have the "Castle Doctrine" as well. CCW's are only required to carry concealed within city limits and you are permitted to carry in State Parks.
So, what does the NRA or GOA think of Romney?
No one should be surprised by this or anything else that demonstrates how much of a RINO that Romney is. What still is bothersome is why the TEA party thinks this guy will support the very things he has demonstrated to oppose over and over and over again.
Okay, actually "assault" weapons are not available to the general public, the rifles available are "sporter" grade replicas of military arms. Assault rifles or weapons are grouped by their caliber, in NATO terms 5.56 x 45mm, the projectile is of the .22 caliber family.
Assault Weapons are "minor" caliber, Military Grade, select fire weapons. Weapons that fall in to this category are the M-16 and it's variants, Galil etc in 5.56 NATO, the AK-74 and its variants chambered in 5.45mm.
Battle Rifles are "major" caliber Military Grade, select fire weapons. Such as the M-14, FN-FAL, G-3, chambered in 7.62 NATO as well as the AK-47 and its variants chambered in 7.62 PACT or COMBLOC (denoting the Warsaw Pact nations).
Select Fire or Automatic Weapons (Machine Giuns to you civvies) are in fact Legal to own under Federal Law;
The Fireman Owners' Protection Act-banned civilian transfer and possession of machine guns not in circulation before May 19, 1986. Through ATF regulation, manufacturers of machine guns may only sell to federal agencies or qualified license holders.
Acquiring said license is not nearly as hard as one might think. But the weapons are frightfully expensive to buy and feed.
WILLARD is not a Conservative, nor believes in the Constitution. If he becomes president, he'll place his hand on the Bible and lie, just like Obama did, when he takes the oath to uphold and defend the Constitution.
I didn't know that, and I live there.
Michigan is a "shall issue" state, also. Do we have a "castle doctrine" too?
A buddy of mine told me you can travel from MI to FL with your handgun if it's properly permitted in your home state, and you observe carry and storage rules of the state you're travelling through.
I like that.
I've watched this many times, and have posted every now and then as a reminder on Facebook. She is a hero in my eyes. I lived in East Texas when that happened, and it was soon after I was introduced to my own .32 as my (ex) husband didn't want me unprotected.
But Charles Krauthammer and the FOX news special report panel told me that Romney had been fully vetted, was rock solid, and that there would be no surprises....
Real conservative values on display from Mr Romney. Take away law abiding citizen's right to bare arms, and force them to purchase a product or service just for the fact that they breathe in your state.
SO in other words, now in Massachusetts, the criminals and gang members will have assault weapons and the law abiding citizens will not. Smooth move mittens- you'd hate it in my neck of the woods.
