"People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think. Don't run. Don't walk. We're in their homes, and in their heads, and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome." River Tam referring to the government.

Not Politically Correct. . .

"Be not intimidated...
nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberties by any pretense of politeness, delicacy, or decency.
These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery and cowardice."
- John Adams

Abraham Lincoln

To quote Jack Donovan’s Violence is Golden: ‘Without action, words are just words. Without violence, laws are just words. Violence isn’t the only answer, but it is the final answer.’

In a world gone mad we are the villains. We wield the truth and the light. In the end we will only be answerable to ourselves and our God. If we win then we inherit the earth, if we lose we get to Heaven.

AG Van Hollen applauds SCOTUS gun ruling

MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen issued the following statement applauding the United States Supreme Court's decision inMcDonald v. City of Chicago that says the Constitution's "right to keep and bear arms" applies nationwide as a restraint on the ability of government to limit its application.
"Today's decision is a victory for those who value liberty. The United States Supreme Court's opinion in McDonald vindicates every individual's fundamental right to keep and bear arms.  Adopting the position I joined on behalf of the state of Wisconsin with 37 other states, the Court rightly concluded that the right to bear arms is a right that should be protected from unconstitutional governmental interference, whether by the federal government or state governments.  This puts the right to bear arms on same footing as other fundamental rights, such as free speech and free exercise of religion. 
To me, the Court's decision today is a natural and anticipated extension of the court's decision two years ago in Heller in which the Court held that the right to bear arms for the purposes of self-defense is a fundamental individual right.  If there is any surprise about today's decision, it is that it was not unanimous.
Wisconsin citizens know how fundamental the right to keep and bear arms is.  When Wisconsin voters were given the opportunity to protect the right to bear arms in the Wisconsin Constitution, they overwhelmingly voted in favor of protecting the right, with nearly 3 votes in favor for every one opposed.  The amendment, which passed in 1998, received more votes for a constitutional amendment than any other amendment in Wisconsin's history that was voted on in a non-presidential election year. 
It is important to me to do what I can as Wisconsin's Attorney General to protect this fundamental individual right.  I sought the required permission to file a brief in the Heller case.  While the Governor denied my request, the State Assembly passed a resolution that authorized my office to write and file a brief with the United States Supreme Court, advocating for the right to bear arms.  When this right became an issue again in the McDonald case, Governor Doyle once again rejected my request to advocate in the Supreme Court for this fundamental right on behalf of the state of Wisconsin.  Once again, the State Assembly stepped in and provided the required authorization I needed to advocate for Wisconsin. "

Blackburn Hails Supreme Court Decision on Second Amendment

Washington, DC - Congressman Marsha Blackburn, in a press release today, praised the Supreme Court's ruling today that the Second Amendment applies equally to Federal, State, and local governments.

"Today the Court maintained what Americans already know; our right to keep and bear arms is absolute. As the founders understood, the individual's right to self protection is endowed by the creator, not by the government," Blackburn said.

"I regret that the ruling on so obvious an issue was a narrow one. This 5-4 ruling highlights how important the confirmation hearings underway in the Senate are. Elena Kagan will do the nation a disservice if she is less than explicit in her views of 2nd Amendment rights. I urge my colleagues in the Senate to examine her position on this issue closely."

The high court ruled earlier this morning that firearms are "essential for self-defense." This latest ruling was handed down following "handgun bans" that were overturned in Washington DC by the "Heller" ruling in 2008.
"Today the Court maintained what Americans already know; our right to keep and bear arms is absolute." - Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R, TN)

The court found that if the Second Amendment indeed
protects an individual right to own a gun, the notion that
the government can't ban all handguns is the minimum
protection the Constitution can offer.
