Assemblymen Wilk, Gorell and Senator Steve Knight vote Yes on SB140 – Gun Confiscation


By Nancy Tujetsch

You’re here to take my WHAT???!” … would’ve been my reaction to Michael Merritt’s encounter with the California Bureau of Firearms APPS division (and depending on the time of day, I might have followed with “Molon Labe!”).  “We’re here to take your guns” raids are to be expected in Third World dictatorial, tyrannical thug countries, but not in Bakersfield, California.  Or are they!  Well, it seems that the late great Golden State of California has now “fundamentally transformed” into the Socialist-Fascist-Marxist-Communist State of California (did I miss any tyrannical government description?). And its “progressive” (read ‘backwards’) Legislature prides itself in being a contender for 1st Place in the national race for gun confiscation of its citizens. Michael Bloomberg must be jealous!

How sad it is when one of our own lawful citizens gets harassed by the very government that is SUPPOSED to be protecting him. I applaud Michael Merritt’s wife, Karla, for telling the agents to come back when they had a warrant!

How much sadder that our California Legislature (with a few rare exceptions) is BEHIND all of it via SB140!

It was a shock to see that our own Assemblymen Scott Wilk, Jeff Gorell and Senator Steve Knight ALL voted “YES” on SB140!  “YES” on the bill that is nicknamed “the fleecing of California gun purchasers!

Whatever happened to “OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people” government that Abraham Lincoln championed?  Why do our Representatives now think they are our “masters” instead of PUBLIC SERVANTS?  Do they forget that WE not only hire them, but also pay their salaries? Perhaps it’s time we demand they pass a test on the U.S. Constitution BEFORE they swear the OATH to uphold it!  Ignorance is NOT acceptable!

What happened to “INNOCENT BEFORE PROVEN GUILTY?”  Why must American citizens be subjected to jumping through multiple legal hoops and scrutiny via “background” checks to exercise a fundamental, God-given RIGHT? Why should we have to pay a “fee” to exercise it? These requirements alone are “unique” ONLY to the Second Amendment.  Why is that?  My opinion: “Fear the Government That Fears Your Guns.”

Perhaps instead of phrasing questions in the form of “Is that legal?” we need to switch to “Is that CONSTITUTIONAL?”  Sadly, those 2 terms are not always interchangeable. It seems though Legislators/Congress have lost their connection to our Constitution and instead are under the presumption that if they can get majority agreement on an issue, then they can just make it a “law”.  We need to remind them that’s NOT how it works in a Constitutional Republic.

The U.S. Constitution is to be the SUPREME Law of the Land (Article VI).  The 2nd Amendment states: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  The 14th Amendment, Section 1 states:  “No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States.”   These two Amendments have “married” before as in the McDonald vs. Chicago case before SCOTUS in June 2010.

So – now what do we do?  GET PREPARED!  Download the flyer in this alert from the NRA  as well as the instructions on your RIGHTS as a U.S. CITIZEN to follow in case you are one who gets that “knock on the door.”  PLEASE take the time to read the links throughout this article, view the videos and become familiar with what is being spun, twisted and perverted in the attempt to disarm the American people.  How are you going to fix something if you don’t know what’s broken?  We must remember: If we’re not part of the solution, then we ARE part of the problem!  

CalGuns Foundation has sent a letter to Sacramento, and is encouraging all of US (WE THE PEOPLE) to support them in this battle.  Please put your heart and your dollars into action and sign this citizen Petition Letter to Sacramento (you can edit/add to the actual letter to personalize it) and then donate on the same page to get this atrocity silenced!   Freedom isn’t free and neither are these lawsuits.  We are the guardians of our own destiny!  And NOW is the time to take our stand!

I’m NOT voting for any of the candidates running for Congress in the 26th district. All are stupid giving away our Constitutional Rights. What ever happened to the Oath they take to defend the Constitution? Not change it. Anyway why would they want the job? Obama has made Congress irrelevant with his pen and paper. Oh, I know, just the money and retirement on our money. And don’t forget the health care that we don’t get.
