ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It was a massive raid with agents taking more than a thousand guns from an Albuquerque man’s home and business, but now that man is suing.
His guns were returned to him, but he said they never should have been taken in the first place. After the criminal charges were dropped, he said he’s still feeling the effects of what he says was an illegal search and seizure of his property.
This was a direct affront to Liberty. The Government stole this man’s property without cause. They damaged and destroyed his property. They damaged his reputation. They caused harm, discomfort and inconvenience to this Citizen.
This is unacceptable.
The Police, the State, the Politicians should pay. Let the rich Liberals who want to punish Citizens for exercising their Natural Human Rights pay for these excesses of the State. Why should the Citizens pay for their excess, criminality, corruption, incompetence and imbecility.
The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America prohibits the unlawful and unreasonable search and seizure of a Citizen’s property. This means that a Citizen’s home is his Castle. The government has no right to enter unless there is a justifiable reason to do so in the form of some probable cause or suspicion of a crime. The American Police and their Masters no longer respect this basic human right that is protected and guaranteed by the Constitution but not granted by the Constitution. Yes, that is correct. The Constitution grants no rights. The Constitution merely protects and guarantees this right. We do not hold these rights by virtue of the United States Constitution. These right pre-exist the Constitution.
The person who signed off on this attack on Liberty should be impeached and removed from the bench. The Police who conducted this attack on Liberty should be terminated. The State stooges and thugs who damaged this man’s property and reputation should be terminated and prosecuted.
The violation of Human Rights by the State has become all too common place. It is time to hold the State and its corrupt officials responsible for their incompetence and their hatred of Liberty.
All of you gun control freaks are wrong. 1. Rights are not granted by the Constitution. 2. The Constitution lays out certain rights with which the Government is prohibited from interfering.
He’s known as the Father of the Constitution.
His writings clearly illustrate that he was PRO- GUN OWNERSHIP and that the intent of said gun ownership was to stave off tyranny.
You know….tyranny like #POLICEBRUTALITY, Qualified Immunity, Civil Asset Forfeiture, the War on Drugs, the War on Crime, SWAT teams raiding homes because a family is two months behind on utility bills. Tyranny.
But none of that happens in America.
The CIA has never smuggled drugs into America. The Police and DEA have never been bought off by the Columbian and Mexican Drug Cartels. Al Capone didn’t own half of the judges and police in Chicago.
Nope…none of that ever happened.
An American President has never assassinated a United States Citizen. Nope, Barack Obama would never do that.
America would never go to war based on the lies of a President, Vice President, CIA, NSA and with collusion from foreign national leaders such as Tony Blair.
Nope…that would never happen in America.
Police would never rape citizens in America. Police would never murder citizens in America. Police would never take the money of a Citizen without due process. Police would never falsely charge citizens with crimes in America.
Never in a million years would any of that happen.
The United States Supreme Court would never hand down a ruling that stated something like this:
“Taylor’s shooting was justified not because he posed an actual threat, but because (Officer) Cruz reasonably perceived a threat.”
NOT IN AMERICA!
We’re the land of the free, the home of the brave.
Police officers are NOT responsible for 1 in every 13 gun deaths?
And, of course, James Madison never wrote this:
“Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off their yokes. But were the people to possess the additional advantages of local governments chosen by themselves, who could collect the national will and direct the national force, and of officers appointed out of the militia, by these governments, and attached both to them and to the militia, it may be affirmed with the greatest assurance, that the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned in spite of the legions which surround it.”
This is James Madison (as Publius in Federalist Paper #46) supporting the ratification of the present Constitution including the Second amendment.
Yes, America, you are Statist Sheep. You are exactly the Yoked about whom Madison spoke who are too fearful and too lacking in arms to throw off tyranny. This is ESPECIALLY so for those LIBERAL SHEEP who believe in gun control.
The DNC and GOP are evil.
Neither are good for the country.
Both are good for their respective Lobbyists and Special Interests.
Both target key demographics and lie to them to get elected.
Unions represent the interests of their respective organizations. Police Unions represent the interests of Police. They lobby for legislation that will benefit the Police. Laws such as COPS and 1033, qualified immunity, confiscation, etc.
The Wars on Poverty, Crime and Drugs were initiated by Democrats. All of these so-called wars benefit the Police, empower the police and destroy the rights of the Citizens.
The War on Terror was initiated by Republican Bush 2. However, Obama has taken that war and run with it. He’s made it his own. The NDAA, NSA spying, police militarization, assassination, rendition, invasions and occupations…all of these things were started by someone other than Obama, the Democrat. Yet, Obama has taken them and injected elephant steroids into these programs and gone about the business of destroying the Constitution.
Any Political Party that centers on the corruption that are American cities is bound to be corrupt.
Police have, historically, been Democratic run organizations. Not Republican.
Military members joining the police forces enmasse is a recent phenomenon. This is happening recently as a result of the terrible economy and programs put in place by respective Clinton, Bush 2 and Obama DOJs.
Our current volunteer military is only 30 years old. Prior to the “All Volunteer” military, our nations military services were made up of careerists who retired after they left service and draftees who were mostly poor. These draftees left the service and went into all career fields and some into none as most were from the poor or lower middle class.
This preposterous idea that the Police forces in the military are made up of mostly ex-military is patently false. I looked it up and it can’t be proven or disproven because no one (not even the DOJ) keeps statistics.
I have been researching American police forces for some time now because of Obama’s continuation of Bush’s War on Liberty. Police come from predominantly working class familes. They enter the police force between the ages of 21 and 24. That does not give the majority of them time to enter the Military, ETS and then join the police as a goodly majority of Police have at least 2 years of college. This is a prerequisite for some, if not most, Police forces.
Police Brutality, of late, is a direct result of the Bush/Obama war on Liberty and the Constitution.
Both the Military and the Police are tools of the State.
Police forces have been given qualified immunity. This means that they are not accountable to the citizenry and not held to the same law as the rest of the citizenry. They are, in fact, above the law. Bush and Obama have brought this about via legislation, “Wars on…,” and court appointments.
This must change or America will no longer be a free nation but, instead, little better than Maoist China.
The Democrats are no better than the Republicans. They are the same. This is an age old tactic. Divide and conquer.
By choosing D or R, you are defeating yourselves and destroying America.
People aren’t killing because the guns are talking to them and saying; “Hey, pick me up and kill people.”
There are many contributing factors to this phenomena. One of these factors is the legal pharmaceuticals with which we have been dousing our male youth in America. Pharmaceuticals with proven side effects that include but are not limited to violent, suicidal and homicidal tendencies. You seemed to have missed that in your desire to blame the handgun for the violence. No sane or normal person would take a firearm and head out with the malicious intent of killing a few innocent people. Nor would a sane or normal person desire to kill himself or his family and friends. No sane or normal person would feel rejected by the whole of the population of the female gender of the world.
However, a person who has been drugged up nearly the whole of his youth would not be sane. Couple the existing less than sane individual with the known but ignored and purposely hidden violent, suicidal and homicidal side effects of these drugs on which he has been societally addicted and, perhaps, it’s not the firearms but the drug issues that should be addressed.
There is also a larger population in America and many, many more large population centers in America. America is also a more diverse nation and a much more complex nation. With a larger population, there will be more incidents. Sorry, but, that’s the way it is.
Take away guns (from civilians who are law abiding) and you will still have criminals with guns.
If you outlaw handguns, you will automatically create a criminal class that theretofore did not exist. Much like the War on Drugs.
Will we call it the War on Hand Guns?
It will never be as simple as banning this or that firearm. It cannot be.
If the Government turns in all of it’s firearms, I would be all for US citizens handing in their firearms. Police kill citizens constantly and no one seems to be concerned. We’re somehow concerned greatly with the much lessor evil of isolated outbreaks of violence involving one person and the victims. Yet, this does not concern me so much as the systemic problems with militarized police forces in America created by the War on Drugs and further strengthened by the War on Terror but that are, in reality, a two pronged campaign against American liberty.
In Switzerland, everyone is part of the military. If I remember correctly. Military service is compulsory. People are more familiar with firearms and, if I remember correctly, ownership of firearms is legal. It is a settled nation that does not have a large immigrant community. Switzerland is largely homogeneous. Three distinct groups who have lived together for hundreds of years. French, German and Italian folks who all are a part of the Swiss Confederation.
Perhaps, America should go back to Universal compulsory military service. Well, we could start the universal piece. Since that has never truly been the case. The sons of the affluent have never, or rarely, served and women have, for odd reasons, always been exempted.
America is not the most violent country on the planet. Sorry but this is not so. Upwards of 90% of this planet is much, much more violent than the USA.
That we are more violent, in so far as handguns are concerned, than Britain and Switzerland is not surprising.
However, it was not so long ago that Britain and France were having huge riots and extreme violence in their streets. So, a great many people did not have guns. They still burned down other people’s property, raped and pillaged and looted.
Europe has it’s hooligan issues.
There are parts of European cities wherein the “official” government will not go as these territories have been taken over by various groups.
Even so, European governments have shown time and time again that they will do with their citizenry as they please. This is possible because most of the population has never had firearms or weaponry.
Europe, when swords were the primary weapon of the day, outlawed personal ownership of swords. Later, they banned the crossbow.
I’m certain that they did this, not for the safety of the citizenry, but the safety of the various governments.
In the end, people die. If one is Christian, it is all part of God’s plan. If one is pagan and believes in fate, twas your destiny. If one is atheist and believes in neither, then there is no plan and this was all for the hell of it anyway.
Why would I wish to give away my right and ability to defend myself due to the violent tendencies of others. This is counter-intuitive. People are violent, hence, law abiding citizens should have the means to protect themselves taken away. After you are dead, the Government can come in and investigate. By that time, you’re dead.
If those gun toting 2nd Amendment guys and gals had been in Isla Vista, Rodgers would not have had a chance. As it was , no one had a means with which to protect themselves and others because they were trusting the Government to do so. And, oddly enough, the government always seems to fail to get their in time.
And all of that doesn’t take into account the war on drugs itself. The majority of gun violence takes place directly as a result of the War on Drugs. Gangs in America’s liberal cities where gun control legislation is often the most restrictive consumes multiples greater than the number of victims in WHITE mass killings. Funny, no one seems to care. I mean, what’s another dead “nigger.” Am I right? Of course, I don’t mean that. However, apparently, that is how the general populace feels. No one seems to care that there are mass killings in our inner cities on a regular basis. However, kill a few White girls or White kids and an Asian kid or two and DAMN…….the worlds all aflutter. And God help you if the parent(s) of one of the victims is affluent or politically connected.
Mass Shootings Remain a Rarity
The reason that horrible tragedies like the Newton, Connecticut and Aurora, Colorado shootings are so gut-wrenching and shocking is rooted in a reality that such incidents are extremely rare. Unfortunately, politicians often aim to stir up emotional reactions and exploit these tragedies for political gain. With the incredible number of statistics that get thrown around and abused, it’s important to sometimes step back and actually look at what the numbers say. Are the gun laws being proposed anything more than window dressing and “feel-good” legislation that will have little actual impact? Should more efforts actually be used in a results-oriented way, targeting the actual concentrated areas where gun crime occurs? Politics is often a processed-based and not results-oriented exercise, where “doing something” is often rewarded more than actually ever accomplishing anything.
That people are weak, does not, in my opinion, give any citizen or the government the right to take anything away from anyone else. You wish to violently enforce your ideology as concerns firearms on the rest of society. What if I wish not to give up my firearms? Will you send government thugs violent into the homes of citizens with whom you disagree to assault us in order to make us abide by your gun control fantasies? If that happens, America is no better than the Soviet Union or the monarchy from which we claimed our independence in 1776.
I do not own a firearm. I don’t. Yet, I believe the 2nd Amendment to be essential to the maintenance of our rights as guaranteed by the Constitution. It is paramount that we, as Americans, retain our right to bear arms in order to fulfill the Liberties espoused in the Declaration of Independence. Without the right to bear arms, we are at the mercy of the Federal, State and Local Governments.
And I do not trust any of them. These institutions are ever grasping of our prerogatives. They are eternally growing. Each time they exceed their authority and we do nothing, they reach out for more and more. The attempt of governments in the United States to control the lives of ordinary citizens everyday lives is a menace to our freedom. Our freedom is endangered.
Do we need the right to bear arms? I think so. I believe we do. With every fiber of my free being, I believe that the right to bear arms is the last line between American Liberty and despotism.
Our right to bear arms protects us against predators such as these:
Yes, that is Anthony Holder smiling at Bill Clinton.
Can there be any clearer proof that the liberal agenda is complete abolition of the 2nd Amendment Rights of American Citizens?
I suppose if you need more proof, you’re either a liberal and in on the agenda, stupid or too lazy to fight for your own rights.
“If I could have banned them all – ‘Mr. and Mrs. America turn in your guns’ – I would have!”
But such comparisons are not easy to dismiss. Lenin stated “One man with a gun can control 100 without one.” Stalin, his successor declared, “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves.” When the Kulaks refused, Stalin instituted his own “executive order,” and they were helpless as the state mowed them down.
A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie.” — Vladimir Ilyich Lenin
