The Second Amendment Candidate

If the Second Amendment is your primary issue, then Bob Owens of Bearing Arms and 2nd Amendment Supporters should be a primary source of advice regarding which politicians to support. Owens continues to make a strong case for Cruz:

It’s frankly odd to see so many people rallying around a big government-supporting crony capitalist like Donald Trump in the mistaken belief that he is the “anti-establishment candidate.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Trump is the face of everything people claim that they hate about politics in America, even bragging in debates about how he paid off candidates in both parties to get what he wanted in a naked proclamation of his belief in the corruption of “business as usual.”

Ted Cruz, on the other hand, is hated by his peers in the establishment Senate GOP for refusing to be a “go along to get along” supporter of big government GOP policies.

The difference between these candidates will be reflected in the multiple Supreme Court nominations they would almost certainly be in a position to make as president, which in turn will determine whether constitutional protection of our fundamental right to bear arms is passed along to the next generation.

No one knows who Trump would appoint, but we do know three things: 1) he has no core conservative principles, 2) he is very open to making deals with the leftist Democrats that he has given so much money to over the years, and 3) he is highly unlikely to defeat the anti-gun rights radical Shrillary in the general election anyway.

In contrast, trends indicate that Cruz would beat Shrillary:


No one doubts that Cruz would make appropriate appointments:

Cruz is hands down the most qualified candidate to ever consider nominating a justice for the Supreme Court, having served a law clerk for Mike Luttig (a very influential textualist judge often compared to Justice Scalia) and Chief Justice William Rehnquist. He also authored 73 briefs and argued nine cases before the Supreme Court, all of those cases pushing for the textualist/constructionist views. He is also the author of the amicus brief 31 states signed on to in the landmark Heller case protecting our Second Amendment rights. …

As a supporter of the right to bear arms, Ted Cruz is clearly our best option.

The Second Amendment is not of importance only to hunters and firearms enthusiasts. As the Founding Fathers were explicitly aware, all of our liberties rest on our ability to physically defend ourselves from tyranny when the need arises. Vote accordingly.


On a tip from Torcer.

    But, but, Trump is a strong Second Amendment guy. He’s been for it a long time, since Sept 2015. Sure, before that he was a big gun control advocate and AWB supporter but only for a half century. He’s been very solid on the Right to Bear Arms for almost six months now.

    I like the picture of Ted rocking the M249 SAW, belt-fed weapons are the most fun you can have with your clothes on.

    No pictures of Trump shooting one though. Probably couldn’t control the weapon with those small hands.

    Bob Owens is a single issue writer. That’s nice as far as it goes. However there are many more issues beyond guns that need attention. For the record, I’m a CCP holder in SC and Utah.

    Hey, true story. It’s only 5.56mm but the 650rpm cyclic rate gives a pretty continuous impulse, firing 11 rounds per second. Here is video of the practical application of the weapon. Lots of carrying, not a lot of shooting but when you press the bang switch it takes off. Scroll out to 4:45 for a nice long burst.

    Not at all. I’m just here to piss off the trolls.

  • I dropped this bomb over on a lib-turd site and am sitting back waiting for them to start flinging fistfulls of feces as a result:

    Americans, including those on both sides of the aisle, are getting Trump Derangement Syndrome:

    “It’s like a hurricane is coming at us, and I don’t have any way of knowing which way to go or how to combat it,” Taylor, 27, a Democrat, said in a phone interview. “He’s extremely reactionary and that’s what scares me the most. I feel totally powerless and it’s horrible.”

    The interesting thing is that this is very common among Democrats – this feeling of powerlessness, of anxiety at the slightest discomfort. All I have to do is inadvertently blurt out some innocent word that Democrats have declared is a ‘trigger word’ and any Democrats withing hearing range suddenly are reduced to quivering masses of jello-like substance, unable to function in the real world for an indefinite period of time.

    Alarmed by another wave of news coverage about Trump’s growing strength, Nancy Lauro, 52, a Brooklyn art teacher, sat at her computer last Saturday and searched Google for information about acquiring Italian citizenship. She also inquired about Ireland, where she has family roots.

    “As phobias and fears ago,” Lauro said later of her query, “this is not a pathological response to a normal situation, but a normal response to a pathological situation. Picking up one’s life feels impossible, but I keep flashing on those people who fled Germany when the writing was on the wall and those who didn’t. When do you take action to get out?”

    If you’re a liberal, progressive or a Democrat, the answer is easy: The sooner the better!

    Trump is my third last choice between the Democrats running – and yes, I did say he’s a Democrat, because he clearly is and everyone knows it. He’s only running because Bill Clinton asked him to. He’s only running as a Republican because the plan was to use his nonsense to give all Republicans/conservatives a bad name.

    All one has to do is look at the readily available documentation of Trump’s expressed attitudes, his behaviors, and his political donations and it’s easy to see he’s a Democrat/liberal running FALSELY as a Republican/Conservative.

    The only hope for the Republicans is to defeat him and let one of the two less than perfect, but better than the three Democrats (Trump, Clinton, Sanders) running on the Republican side win the nomination and the eventual election.

    But I will say that of the three Democrats running, (Trump, Clinton, Sanders), as bad as Trump admittedly is, he’s still better than the other two!

  • The 2nd is clearly a primary issue, but I am simply not a single issue guy.

    Then again…

    “An armed man is a citizen. A disarmed man is a subject.”

    Still, your point is taken. If we let the 2nd Amendment continue to be watered down, exactly what we were warned about will come to pass:

    “Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do not.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    Third President of the United States

    George Washington said, “Government is like fire, a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”

    “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

    George Mason

    Co-author of the Second Amendment

    “The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full posession of them.”

    Zachariah Johnson

    Elliot’s Debates, vol. 3 “The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution.”

    “… the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms”

    Philadelphia Federal Gazette

    June 18, 1789, Pg. 2, Col. 2

    Article on the Bill of Rights

    “And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; …”

    Samuel Adams

    quoted in the Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789, “Propositions submitted to the Convention of this State”


    (and I don’t even drink!)

    “Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”

    George Washington

    First President of the United States

    “The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside … Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”

    Thomas Paine

    “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”

    Richard Henry Lee

    American Statesman, 1788

    “The great object is that every man be armed.” and “Everyone who is able may have a gun.”

    Patrick Henry

    American Patriot

    “Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”

    Patrick Henry

    American Patriot

    “The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … ”

    Thomas Jefferson

    letter to Justice John Cartwright, June 5, 1824. ME 16:45.

    “The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”

    Alexander Hamilton

    The Federalist Papers at 184-8

    And why are guns necessary? Obama has given us a number of direct lessons:

    “The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    Third President of the United States

    “There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. ”

    Noah Webster

    American Lexicographer

    “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    to James Madison

    “They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    Ben Franklin

    American Statesman

    “The ruling class doesn’t care about public safety. Having made it very difficult for States and localities to police themselves, having left ordinary citizens with no choice but to protect themselves as best they can, they now try to take our guns away. In fact they blame us and our guns for crime. This is so wrong that it cannot be an honest mistake.”

    Malcolm Wallop

    former U.S. Sen. (R-WY)


    “Our main agenda is to have all guns banned. We must use whatever means possible. It doesn’t matter if you have to distort the facts or even lie. Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.”

    Sara Brady

    Chairman, Handgun Control Inc, to Senator Howard Metzenbaum

    The National Educator, January 1994, Page 3.

    “If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.”

    “This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future!”

    Adolph Hitler

    Chancellor, Germany, 1933

    “A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…”

    – George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790

    “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, Virginia Constitution, Draft 1, 1776

    “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787

    “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, December 20, 1787

    “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

    “A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, August 19, 1785

    “The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to to John Cartwright, 5 June 1824

    “On every occasion [of Constitutional interpretation] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823

    “I enclose you a list of the killed, wounded, and captives of the enemy from the commencement of hostilities at Lexington in April, 1775, until November, 1777, since which there has been no event of any consequence … I think that upon the whole it has been about one half the number lost by them, in some instances more, but in others less. This difference is ascribed to our superiority in taking aim when we fire; every soldier in our army having been intimate with his gun from his infancy.”

    – Thomas Jefferson, letter to Giovanni Fabbroni, June 8, 1778

    “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    – Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

    “To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.”

    – George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adooption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788

    “I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.”

    – George Mason, Address to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 4, 1788

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”

    – Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787

    “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.”

    – James Madison, Federalist No. 46, January 29, 1788

    “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”

    – James Madison, I Annals of Congress 434, June 8, 1789

    “…the ultimate authority, wherever the derivative may be found, resides in the people alone…”

    – James Madison, Federalist No. 46, January 29, 1788

    “Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

    – William Pitt (the Younger), Speech in the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

    “A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves…and include, according to the past and general usuage of the states, all men capable of bearing arms… “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”

    – Richard Henry Lee, Federal Farmer No. 18, January 25, 1788

    “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”

    – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

    “This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty…. The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”

    – St. George Tucker, Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Laws of England, 1803

    “The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms, like law, discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The balance ofpower is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up. Horrid mischief would ensue were one-half the world deprived of the use of them; for while avarice and ambition have a place in the heart of man, the weak will become a prey to the strong. The history of every age and nation establishes these truths, and facts need but little arguments when they prove themselves.”

    – Thomas Paine, “Thoughts on Defensive War” in Pennsylvania Magazine, July 1775

    “The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

    – Samuel Adams, Massachusetts Ratifying Convention, 1788

    “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”

    – Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1833

    “What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty …. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”

    – Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, I Annals of Congress 750, August 17, 1789

    “For it is a truth, which the experience of ages has attested, that the people are always most in danger when the means of injuring their rights are in the possession of those of whom they entertain the least suspicion.”

    – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 25, December 21, 1787

    “If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state. In a single state, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.”

    – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28

    “[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little, if at all, inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their own rights and those of their fellow-citizens. This appears to me the only substitute that can be devised for a standing army, and the best possible security against it, if it should exist.”

    – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28, January 10, 1788

    “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.”

    Be careful what you ask for…….

    “Are there things we can do? Sure. One of the things
    we could do is we could improve the quality of the federal database,” Cruz said
    in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.” “Right now a lot of states, a lot of local
    jurisdictions, are not reporting criminal convictions, not reporting mental
    health barriers to ownership. And so the federal database is not nearly as good
    as it should be. That would be a common-sense improvement.”(code words)

    Cruz’s recommendation focuses on the National Instant Criminal Background
    Check System (NICS), an FBI database through which licensed gun dealers are
    required to screen potential buyers before making a sale. Under federal law,
    felons, illegal immigrants, spousal abusers and the severely mentally ill are
    barred from buying or owning firearms.

    I have made my opinion of Trump clear – he’s one of three Democrats running this year, so what if he’s running as a Republican.

    So basically that leaves Cruz and Rubio.

    I suspect both will disappoint in some ways, if elected, but of the two, I would say Cruz is the one to support.

    If you think I’m wrong, if you think Rubio is better, or, God forbid, you favor Trump, go ahead and tell us why. (This to the general audience – anyone free to chime in.)

  • Well said.

  • Sweetheart loans are a form of known political persuasion. However, it’s kinda silly to single out Cruz for taking a loan from Goldman Sachs when Hillary took huge donations as “speaking fees”.

  • No talking points, just facts. And the truth does deserve to be repeated.

  • Dolan Trump

    I enjoyed that video.

  • Small point – apparently they’ve changed the name: M249 light machine gun (LMG) Intended to inform, not to criticize.

  • Yeah where are the pack mules needed to keep those beasts fed? They must chew up a TON of ammo in intense firefights.

  • Ed. G. Mann

    Those ‘facts’ have been spread all over the web. Those that carry, own, and believe in the Second Amendment know them. The rest don’t care about them; they’re never going to be swayed because they don’t believe in guns. They hate guns and anyone that owns them. They’re hackneyed and for that reason are boring to believers and ignored by the rest.
    FYI as I wrote in other places here I have my CCP in SC and Utah. Now what?

  • Ed. G. Mann

    That’s fine in the military where you have someone else loading and paying for that ammo.
    I shot pretty much all small arms in the Nam, from the M-3 to the 47. I served with the 1st / 5th SF in Nam from ’64 to early 68 in two tours plus a couple of months. We didn’t carry a SAW weren’t available then. 16’s and 60’s. The 47 was best, it didn’t give you up, sounded like the gomers.

    When you carry a SAW you carry the ammo and your own ruck plus the rest of the team spreads out ammo for the weapon. That’s a lot of weight.

  • You have your CCP in SC and Utah.

    So what?

    Let me know when you get one in San Diego County. That would be a neat trick.

    Why do you insist on quibbling with people who, probably, mostly agree with you?

  • Ed. G. Mann

    I was forced to visit CA once, no desire to do it twice. I’ll go no farther west than Idaho.

    On this site most of the people don’t agree which doesn’t bother me. It peppers up the day. I’ll argue with anyone; here I find mostly invective when an opposing opinion is delivered. That comes from small minds.
    what I said about those points is true. Preaching to the choir produces nothing. You get an amen but no converts. And it annoys the organist.

  • I agree that

    Preaching to the choir produces nothing.


    Those ‘facts’ have been spread all over the web.

    Still, there are places some people go, who also visit this site, where those things can stand to be repeated because they MIGHT reach someone who needs to hear or see them and who MIGHT be inspired. This site does not tolerate most moonbats and their nonsense, though they do show up from time to time.

    I invite constructive criticism of what I post, but “I’ve already seen that” is just whining. If you’ve already seen it, stop reading, go to the next post.

    Please, by all means, read the posts I make that are interesting, but skip the ones you’ve heard (and this goes for everyone here) also please feel free to correct me when necessary.

    I also have a photo and art blog comprised of original work which sells locally and sometimes nationally.

    Commenting here is just a break from the daily toil.

  • Not upset – and I do appreciate ANY input. Well, other than moonbat nonsense…

    I’m not convinced that Cruz’s loan was a “sweetheart” loan.

    And was it not Goldman Sachs that paid Hillary $650,000 for three speeches? Great work if you can get it.

  • Yeah I worded that poorly – so I went back & fixed it.

    Meanwhile, every time you open your cocksucker, you are moronic.

    I did qualify you sniveling little pussy. Let’s bring everyone up do date on your cowardice.

    Fibtard the fucktard is a whiny, petulant keyboard warrior. He likes to taunt people who have real military experience. When challenged though, he will accept the offer of mutual combat, then chicken out and stay home in mom’s basement where he feels safe.

    Fiberal is a coward who talks big but can’t back it up.

    Yes, it is. That’s why they chambered it in 5.56mm instead of 7.62, plus the weapon will also use the standard M4 magazines.

    I’ve used both the M60, M240B and the SAW, the SAW is fine for laying down suppressive fire against soft targets like any belt-fed, but when you want to tear shit up, the M60 is my first choice. M240B is a POS as far as I’m concerned

    Standard combat load out these days is over 130lbs, that is why America has evac’d more soldiers from the battlefield since 9/11/01 with load related injuries than have been wounded by the enemy.

    In a real firefight, the gunner would have used more controlled bursts, 6 to 9 rounds, per.
