If you ever wonder why the framers of the Constitution and our founding fathers thought the Bill of Rights was so important to the Constitution, you need to look no further than the liberal politicians in the State of California.
California’s left wing government thinks there is a constitutional right for homosexuals to marry but you cannot have a gun in California. In California, the authorities try to restrict speech based on the fact that they do not like it.
I have read the Constitution. No matter where you fall on the issue of gay marriage, something can be said with absolute certainty. The Constitution protects free speech. The Constitution protects the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution is absolutely silent on the issue of gay marriage, not to mention marriage at all.
Another nail has been driven into the coffin containing Constitutional rights in California. California has just enacted a law that bans the open carrying of unloaded handguns and registration of long guns.
California has banned the open carry of loaded handguns, except in a few exceptions and California has made it very difficult to obtain a concealed carry permit. In fact, one of the requirements to get a concealed carry permit in California is that you must be a brain dead celebrity who rants about the horrifying fact that some people actually own guns.
Our founding fathers knew a couple of things. First, an armed populace is a great deterrent against tyranny, invasion and bad behavior.
Leftists scream about how dangerous guns are. They scream that if we allow mere citizens to carry guns, there will be bloodbaths. If we let mere citizens carry weapons, there will be shootouts in the streets.
However, as with all liberal hysteria, those tirades are long on silly emotional screaming and very short on facts. A majority of states allow either open carry or as I like to call it, “Constitutional carry” or concealed carry.
Not only are the bodies not piling up in these states, these are also the states that have the lowest crime rates. Criminals may be lazy but are not totally stupid. They look for the easiest target and certainly do not want to mix it up with someone who is carrying a gun and probably knows how to use it.
While the left screams about the myth of how dangerous guns are, they are amazingly silent on something else. Almost every week, we hear stories about people who legally own and carry firearms. Not only are they not committing crimes, they are stopping crimes.
Interestingly enough in Chicago and DC, after handgun bans were struck down, crime dropped!
Compare that to what happened in Britain, Ireland and Australia. When they banned guns, their crime rates went through the roof.
As California works to further ban guns, look for crime to continue to rise in the land of fruits and nuts. Hopefully, the Supreme Court will eventually reverse that decision and impose some sanity on California.
In the meanwhile, Jerry Brown and company are proving the truth of the statement that our country was designed by geniuses and run by morons.
THE FOLLOWING POSTER IS VALID, I KNOW BECAUSE I LIVE IN THIS STINKING STATE AND YES IF I COULD AFFORD TO MOVE I WOULD.

PERVERSION RUNS WILD IN SAN FRANCISCO AND FOR THAT MATTER MOST EVERY MAJOR CITY IN CALIFORNIA, EVEN THE CITY I USE TO LIKE.... SAN DIEGO. I WOULD NOT EVEN TAKE A DOG TO THAT CITY.
When our U.S. Military was being used to go door-to-door under the auspices of the United Nations, we had people from Australia call into our radio program and they gave us the report from Australia as it was happening. We heard the knocks on the doors, the protests of the people, and etc.
We warned America that this was our future if we did not speak out and fight for our rights under the Constitution.
We were called extremist, alarmists, right-wing fanatics ... and those were just the nice names. Others, as a lady, I will not mention here.
Below is an article I think you will find interesting.
The Results Are In
The following is a synopsis of an interview conducted by Ginny Simone with Keith Tidswell of Australia's Sporting Shooters Association. The entire interview is available as "Surprise, Surprise" in the "Archive News" section of:
One year after gun-owners were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed, including semi-automatic .22 rifles and shotguns, a program costing the government over 500 million dollars, the results are in...
A dramatic increase in criminal activity has been experienced. Gun control advocates respond "Just wait... we'll be safer... you'll see...".
OBSERVABLE FACT, AFTER 12 MONTHS OF DATA:

AND BEFORE THAT EVEN HAPPENS, ANY ATTEMPT ON THEIR PART ON MY PROPERTY WILL CONSTITUTE AUTOMATIC LOCK AND LOAD MODE AND ONCE THEY STEP IN THEY WON'T CHECK OUT
TAKE THAT TO THE BANK
Imposing sanity on California will be much harder than you make it sound Judson. They are embedded with fruits and nuts and the weather seems to grow them larger than anywhere in the world. Good luck
