Republican Senator Richard Burr and the 2nd Amendment

A Call To Action

Opinion Commentary From Raleigh Constituent.

Dear John Jacob;

As you may know over the years I occasionally undertake to contact my elected officials in a feeble attempt to influence the outcome of some political issue or other.

Notified over the weekend of the Presidential Order to shred expended brass small arm cartridge casings rather than recycle them to commercial civilian reloaders as had been the practice of the Department of Defense for many years I called the office of my Republican Senator Richard Burr to learn what he may know of this situation and how he will proceed to defeat this attempt to curtail freely available supplies of ammunition to gun owners of America.

As I bounced from the desk of the constituent service staffer to the Department of Defense Liaison and then to the 2nd Amendment Legislative Coordinator it occurred to me to ask a simple question of these people: Are you a gun owner or shooter or hunter or in any way actively engaged in 2nd Amendment Activities outside the bubble of Washington politics?

You may be surprised to learn I was unable to find anyone who was a proactive, gung-ho,out-of-the-closet gun owner anywhere inside the office of Senator Richard Burr.

In short, gun owners literally do not have a place at the table inside the office of Republican Senator Richard Burr.

There is no go-to guy or gal who walks the walk or talks the talk of ordinary routine commonplace 2nd Amendment Activities – IDPA,Trap,Skeet,Sporting Clays,Camp Perry,Plinking,Duck Hunting, Deer Hunting, Predator Hunting,Bullseye,CCW,Open Carry,Cowboy Action, Thunder Ranch, Front Sight, you name it, it does not exist inside the Senators Staff on a daily basis in Washington or in the North Carolina Office.

No one who attends seminars or meetings, sits in conferences, writes memos, makes phone calls actually owns or understands the daily possession and use of rifles, pistols and shotguns let alone crew served weapons or other accoutrements of a well regulated Militia.

There is simply no one available to refute the dozens of daily myths or misunderstandings that may be held by members of the staff or answer questions from the public about the Right To Keep And Bear Arms.

So it would appear Task One for all Three Percenters and 2nd Amendment Activists would be to catalog all the offices of all elected officials who cannot find room in their staffing budget to include an actual real live gun owner as part of the routine personnel selection process.

Do it today. Call your various elected representatives and ask to speak to an actual real live gun owner on staff.

Be sure not to settle for some lame answer or half hearted response- I used to shoot when I was a kid or I have a shotgun in the closet.

Ask specific questions: In what kind of shooting or hunting do you engage? How often? With what rifle, pistol or shotgun? Where?

You will easily separate sheep from goats with the quality of replies you receive.

All other issues are moot if the staff is devoid of anyone with true knowledge of and passion about the 2nd Amendment.

So call out the Militia with instructions for recon patrols of their elected representatives staff personnel.

If The People do not have a place at the table of our elected representative’s counsels, for all practical purposes we are invisible and do not really exist in a practical sense.

Hoyer says House will not seat a North Carolina Republican amid questions about integrity of election

Another day, another Republican unable to function unhampered by the web of Lilliputian Democrats.

The Secular Jurist

Incoming House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer said Friday that Democrats next week will not seat a North Carolina Republican amid allegations of election fraud in the state’s 9th Congressional District.

“Given the now well-documented election fraud that took place in NC-09, Democrats would object to any attempt by [Mark] Harris to be seated on January 3,” Hoyer said in a statement. “In this instance, the integrity of our democratic process outweighs concerns about the seat being vacant at the start of the new Congress.”

The statement came after North Carolina dissolved its elections board Friday without certifying the Nov. 6 results, leaving the fate of the seat in doubt days ahead of the start of the new Congress.

Excerpt:

New York’s Sullivan Act is one law that desperately needs to land in front of the Supreme Court just so it can dismantle the system, one that favors political connections over any other factor when it comes to individuals’ Second Amendment rights. It’s a system that would keep Tonya Wooten disarmed, beaten, and possibly killed so they can pretend they’re keeping people safe.

Black Rifle Coffee Clint Romesha Interview

From the Amazon.com description:

The only comprehensive, firsthand account of the fourteen-hour firefight at the Battle of Keating by Medal of Honor recipient Clinton Romesha, for readers of Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden and Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell.

“‘It doesn’t get better.’ To us, that phrase nailed one of the essential truths, maybe even the essential truth, about being stuck at an outpost whose strategic and tactical vulnerabilities were so glaringly obvious to every soldier who had ever set foot in that place that the name itself—Keating—had become a kind of backhanded joke.”

In 2009, Clinton Romesha of Red Platoon and the rest of the Black Knight Troop were preparing to shut down Command Outpost (COP) Keating, the most remote and inaccessible in a string of bases built by the US military in Nuristan and Kunar in the hope of preventing Taliban insurgents from moving freely back and forth between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Three years after its construction, the army was finally ready to concede what the men on the ground had known immediately: it was simply too isolated and too dangerous to defend.

On October 3, 2009, after years of constant smaller attacks, the Taliban finally decided to throw everything they had at Keating. The ensuing fourteen-hour battle—and eventual victory—cost eight men their lives.

Red Platoon is the riveting firsthand account of the Battle of Keating, told by Romesha, who spearheaded both the defense of the outpost and the counterattack that drove the Taliban back beyond the wire and received the Medal of Honor for his actions.

“A vitally important story that needs to be understood by the public, and I cannot imagine an account that does it better justice that Romesha’s.”—Sebastian Junger, journalist and author of The Perfect Storm

“Red Platoon is sure to become a classic of the genre.”—Hampton Sides, author of Ghost Soldiers and In the Kingdom of Ice

Let me give you some facts that should scare the hell out of you.

There is no scientific evidence whatsoever that the condition of this area is under any threat whatsoever from commercial and sports fishing. In fact this area has been fished for over 50 years. The area, as most of the Continental Shelf between Maine and Florida, is rich in red crab, squid, swordfish, yellowfin tuna, bigeye tuna, albacore, and lobster. The radical left environmentalists such as The Nature Conservancy, The Sierra Club, Oceana, and The Pew Charitable Trusts claims that the Aquatic National Park is extremely sensitive to any disturbance by man. By the way, these conservancy groups also say this is true of the entire Continental Shelf from Maine to Florida. Accusations of hurting whales, porpoises, birds, and other marine life all the way down to 3,000 feet and beyond is not true.
