Although innocent, defenseless, law-abiding, decent, harmless, female, gay, weak, elderly, victimized, abused and other citizens in D.C can now keep and bear arms thanks to the Supreme Court’s glorious ruling supposedly restoring the rights the government had mercilessly confiscated, creating the biggest crime-ridden phony “gun-free” zone in the nation, D.C. residents cannot obtain handguns, which are “the
quintessential self defense weapon” according to the Court,  thanks to federal law:

18 USC § 922(b) It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver --

(3) any firearm to any person who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the licensee’s place of business is located...

No word yet on whether dealers in adjacent Maryland and Virginia are willing to risk their business licenses and incur prison sentences, to sell legal firearms to residents of D.C. Officials in D.C. implied slightly that it would be OK, but they have no authority over BATFE, the agency that would make the arrests.

Happy Independence Day - Episode #75
Happy Independence Day 2008

 

I took a few minutes from my vacation to upload this live from Delaware. This week an interview with local DC firearm instructor Ricardo Royal whom testified at a DC City Council hearing on the aftermath of the US Supreme Court.

 

Kenn provides a warning to all gun rights activist to be careful that the enemy doesn't use their exuberance against us all. Words are powerful and politicians (lawyers) are known to twist the good intentions of people to their benefit. Don't think you are "all that" when it comes to politics.

 

This is a teaser as next week we are going to really go at some tough subjects.

"I just want to celebrate, yeah, yeah!"


Today I celebrate the Supreme Court decision to end the misinterpretation of the Second Amendment of the US Constitution in our nation’s cities and my 46th birthday. (I am 30 years old with 16 years experience!)

This podcast will use a few bars from Motown’s Rare Earth, “I just want to celebrate” which pretty much captures how I feel about everything right in my life. Interesting note is that this was one of Motowns first, all White American groups that had this hit in 1971. I love the fact that music is universal and the color of your skin doesn’t mean “jack”. Play that funky music …

OK the Supreme Court of the United States agrees with us that the Second Amendment is an individual right. Now what? I know there is confusion as to whether the law where you live is a state or federal law and which one will finally rule.

The Supremacy Clause in the Constitution says: 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.

Meaning that federal law always trumps state law if there is a conflict between the two. If there is no conflict then the state law will be used but if there is any question or conflict of the two reading as the same, then the federal rule would win. The bad news is, cities and states can and will still create restrictions to keep you from being able to protect yourself and family in the letter of the law. It is no coincidence that lawyers become politicians.
