Infringement is Constitutionally Banned

Punishment must be made swift and sure

"Officials" think anything is OK. It is not.
Those who would infringe must face punishment.

The lamestream media told you:

We have to take away the "assault weapons." These are too dangerous to have on "our streets." "We don't want to take away all your guns," says Mr. Hogg, convincingly, despite what all his supporters and media lapdogs say. The "assault weapon" ban simply bans anything with a magazine... and a grip. https://www.gunlaws.com/FeinsteinGunBanBillAnalysis.htm

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Civilians must have armed parity with police. That was the principle behind the Second Amendment. Government could not get out of hand if the the people were armed, the last bulwark against tyranny.

Infringement is banned in no uncertain terms in the Constitution. Taking or attempting to take legally owned guns from the public is infringement. Those who would infringe upon the public's right to possess and possession of arms must face punishment. It is not something they can simply do. Removing or outlawing firearms from the public is forbidden.

The actions of criminals, no matter how bad those acts may be, do not justify illegal actions against the public. Such logic is emblematic of the irrational behavior of so-called progressives in general. It is a sign of people who need medical treatment and are not getting any. It represents, among other problems, the logic error, appelare desperadi, "we must do something." You should not do something, you should do the right thing.

Disarming the public is not even remotely a solution to the actions of criminals or insane people. In fact, it only makes matters worse, by leaving the innocent helpless in the face of miscreants and sociopaths. Failure to see this is a sign of untreated hoplophobia.

One way of fighting this, untested at the current time, is creed discrimination. It is illegal to discriminate based upon creed. Though creed is often viewed in a religious context, it is also equally valid in a socio-political context. The fierce attachment with which many Americans cling to their right to arms is indeed a creed, dating back to Colonial times. Singling citizens out for special legal action is creed discrimination and illegal under civil-rights statutes. Where are the creative and ambitious civil-rights attorneys looking to break new ground and make a name for themselves...

Guns Are A High Calling

It’s Not Controversial -- It’s Virtually Holy

Alan Korwin

This article originally ran in the JPFO Bill of Rights Sentinel, Ed. 13

It’s easy to feel a certain degree of guilt about advocating for gun rights and the Second Amendment.

The amount of mud-slinging, criticism and abuse “regular” people heap on you, when you speak of guns is so enormous, it can weigh you down. It is difficult to bear. The constant berating, denigration and antagonism. The non-stop belittling. Endless bombardment by the so-called mainstream media, about crime and society’s psychos doing bad things, it makes it tough to see the forest for the trees, to stand up for what’s right and just and good.

Yet the brilliant Founding Fathers, the ones who ensconced the right to arms in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution must have had some method to their madness. And it turns out it wasn’t madness at all. It was brilliance.

They realized that no matter what they did about the lowly common man, the even lower common criminal was going to be armed. The despots and dictators, the corrupt power-mad immoral politicians, even somewhat decent politicians, and especially the determined slave owners within their midst were going to be armed to the teeth.

These malefactors were going to have and invent ever more deadly weapons and means of oppression as time went on. If Americans weren’t free to be equally armed, a free country was little more than a pipe dream.

Being called into the fray today for defense of an armed public is not a dark art or evil science, it is among the highest of callings. It is liberty personified. It means standing up to the darkest of powers, the most evil of evil people.

The world rulers, the masters of humanity, who would lord it over you, tell you how to live and what you can and cannot do, they are where evil lives. A Chuck Schumer, a Dianne Feinstein and their allies who would summarily disarm you, while they remain constantly heavily armed by hired thugs, they are the ones who should feel crushed by overwhelming guilt. They do not.

Without this stunning guaranteed personal right to arms, which no other place on Earth possesses, America could not be what it is. In our Founders’ genius and insight, they created what you and I could do to pursue the most robust and splendid course of political action imaginable. It is one you can join in with me.

These children now running loose, legitimately terrified for their lives thanks to psychopaths running loose, these kids would ignorantly disarm you in a false hope of creating safety. They are among the greatest threat to everyone’s safety we may have ever faced. They don’t understand this. And they are being used by evil manipulators hoping to accomplish an insidious goal for which they have been thwarted for decades. It is a malevolent plan without equal.

If not for guns, Europe would be speaking German. Without a robust right to arms, there would be no Israel. The despotic Arabs and Muslim nations would wipe Israel off the map, this is their unholy promise, stopped only by the force of arms. Where are any armed minions of “the religion of peace” opposing that pernicious threat? Nowhere to be found.

“If not for guns, Europe would be speaking German now.”

Wake up, mass media. What magic makes America immune to such intolerance? Who in the democrat party, the ones preaching tolerance and inclusion, is arguing loudly, or at all, for arming the rape victim? Nowhere to be found. Wake up, mass media. Wake up “progressive” America. Wake up to the highest political calling there is -- independent self-reliance with the power to act. Communist dictator Mao correctly said power comes from the barrel of a gun. Power to the people, right on.

ISN'T IT BETTER TO KILL THE MURDERER?

The lamestream media told you:

All these crazed permit holders carrying dangerous loaded semi-automatic handguns that spray bullets are nothing but bloody danger waiting to happen on our streets. The whole idea is just a gun-lobby scheme to sell more guns and make the gun manufacturers richer at the cost of our children's lives. If it was legal we would have the whole batch of them lined up against a wall and shot, which would be a good thing, they are just devil's pawns, if the devil was real.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

As gun owners know, CCW-permit holders are in the smallest demographic group for the commission of crime of virtually any ambulatory group of Americans. Self-educated and supremely conscious of the dire ramifications of using firearms in any situation, they are extremely reluctant to draw a firearm and use it unless it is absolutely necessary and justifiable. So-called news-media experts didn't get the memo.

Firearm trade magazines carry regular columns detailing the common and righteous use of firearms in self defense, and though these typically include stories where the gun-owner was completely in the right and may even end up vindicated at the scene, we all know this is frequently not the case. Long, protracted court cases, expensive lawyering and unknown results hang over any use of firearms in a public setting.

Yes, it's better to be alive, but: "It's always better to avoid a gunfight than to win one." Now there's a bit of wisdom you will never see in mass media, even the fair-and-balanced station, for reasons that were unclear at press time.

It's common for gun owners, after experiencing self defense, to obsess about why they were caught in the grinder in the first place. Coulda should woulda may interfere with sleep, work and play. Avoidance is the ultimate self defense and "PreFence" addresses that in scores of ways most people have never considered.


 
Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill

By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano 240 p. #ST $15
http://www.gunlaws.com/books21Newest.htm

add_to_cart.gif  view_cart.gif

A veteran of the armed forces, national defense and private security, author Grossman, and DeGaetano, detail ways professionals keep their clients out of harm's way before harm appears. You should too. You should not be there in the first place.

"If you're reaching for your gun you've already lost."

Learn how to remain miles away from where you might need to shoot your way out of a bad spot. Even if you don't have to shoot the bad guy, being anywhere near that is being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I cannot recommend this piece of self-defense ammunition enough.

If you suspected this was going to be about killing mass murderers caught in the act, that's a complex question you can write to me about. Your chances of running across that are slim. What action authorities should take as a matter of policy is a separate question. Different rules and principles apply.

Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies - Not

Lamestream Report Based on Nonsense

Reported as if Credible, Without Real Basis

The lamestream media told you:

Science News -- Erika Engelhaupt -- "Despite a public debate that grows more fractious with every school shooting, Americans actually agree on gun policy to a surprising extent. According to a survey of more than 2,100 people, majorities of both gun owners and nonowners support 15 potential gun restrictions or regulations, researchers report online May 17 in the American Journal of Public Health."

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Science News, a once respectable digest of important developments in scientific discovery, has abandoned even the pretense of neutrality or science, with a new report on firearms based solely on the nation’s leading gun-control advocates. “Americans Agree on 15 Gun Policies” cites David Hemenway, described as “an expert on violence prevention who was not involved in the study.” This individual is widely recognized as one of the leading anti-gun-rights proponents in the nation, supported and quoted by gun-control groups, whose work finds no redeeming values to gun ownership.

The study itself comes from the John Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, an agenda-driven organization created in 1995 and funded primarily with a $50 million endowment from Michael Bloomberg (and joined by other left-leaning funders) for the expressed purpose of developing gun-control policy positions. Asking this source for data, and Hemenway to provide credibility is like asking the Flat Earth Society for maps.

The Hopkins Center, since its creation, has issued a steady flood of papers discovering a single finding -- guns are bad, cause harm, serve no valid purpose, and should be regulated, banned, controlled, and gun owners are basically a detriment to society. No valuable purpose to firearms or their role in society appears in any output from the Center, which dominates page after page in Google searches. Its single-minded results alone should prompt any reasonable scientist to question its findings, since firearms are clearly involved in peace-keeping internationally, stopping crime domestically, saving lives, and even if only in police hands, they serve a valuable civic function. Three consecutive years of credible research from the federal Centers for Disease Control shows private firearms prevent 2.5 million crimes annually.

While the Science News report claims gun owners and non-owners alike overwhelmingly support background checks, the actual survey was not described. As readers of Page Nine are aware, background checks have no effect on the main areas of mass murder that motivate the ill-informed public to seek them -- sociopathic children who seek to mass murder their classmates, Muslim jihadis waging war on Americans, inner-city gangs fully armed and committing 6,000 unsolved murders annually after two decades of background checks, and the recording of 12 million innocent Americans names yearly, in the false name of stopping crime.

Perhaps worst is the little-known fact that, after vicious criminals are identified during checks, trying to buy guns at known locations with the FBI on the phone, and having provided their names and contact info on signed forms (which itself is felony perjury), they are simply sent away, with their money. Whether Americans actually agree on that, as Hemenway, the Hopkins Center and Science News report is true, was unclear at press time, like the other highly controversial facts about background checks.

Setting the denied persons free might not be too terribly bad, since the denials are conducted by low-level computer clerks sitting in offices in West Virginia. The checks remove fundamental constitutional rights people should have without trials, due process or representation, and according to expert Dr. John Lott, false positives in the system exceed 90%. That’s proven out by the almost total lack of convictions, or even court cases, for the supposed criminals denied their rights in stores, another point Americans might not agree upon in the high numbers Science News unequivocally declares. No effort to reach Science News was made, since they have been unresponsive in the past, and the story is so hopelessly prejudicial.

Editor Nancy Shute, writer Erika Engelhaupt and Science News are of course welcome to respond, answer any of the claims made in this article and provide any evidence refuting this piece, or run an article in their publication addressing these points, which would be standard in similar cases. According to leading experts, that will not occur.

We Need More Gun Laws -- say what?

The lamestream media told you:

Surviving victims of the Parkland mass murders went on a 20-state 75-city summer bus tour they arranged to promote gun-safety measures that will stop future school massacres. They are seeking new common-sense gun laws against a Congress that has refused to act because the evil NRA has bought and sold its members. What the adults have been unable to achieve the kids may have a chance at getting done, at last. Yes, we keep running this story.

The common-sense measures the children are supporting include increased universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons and removal of dangerous guns from our streets. The tour includes a voter-registration drive for youngsters who will be turning or are 18 years of age.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

America has 94,000+ words of gun law at the federal level. Do the children know that? It's rhetorical. They do not. Every imaginable criminal act is already outlawed. New proposed laws only outlaw legal behavior, except -- No federal crimes (yet) for officials who infringe.

Gun laws don't cause crime (at least not directly).

Gun laws don't stop crime (or might be a slight deterrent to the weak).

Gun laws provide a way to gauge and punish criminals after they commit crimes. Every crime imaginable is already illegal. New gun laws, which are only proposed by democrats for reasons that are unclear, affect rights Americans have and do not address criminals in any new way. That's because all criminal activity with guns is already illegal, but I repeat myself.

If you want to see and understand the gun laws already in place across the nation, you get and read this, it has them all. Politicians don't know it. The public doesn't know it. Most judges don't know it.

You should know it:

The complex multi-city multi-state anti-gun-rights bus tour for the new Parkland political activist advocates has been staged and orchestrated by the nation's leading anti-Second Amendment political operatives, and funded by dark money forces who are remaining completely out of the public eye. The idea the kids did this themselves is as false as almost everything else about this micro-managed event.

Sociopathic children who want to mass murder their classmates are unaffected by gun laws. They don't care about their classmates or gun laws, they care about the psychotropic drugs most of them are on, a fact suppressed by mass media, but available to researchers and you if you look.

Even if "law" required every gun in America to be under lock and key, an infringement banned by the Constitution that would make guns worthless for their righteous and intended use, guns would remain widely available -- as they are to countless criminals who cannot have them at all. Kids get drugs, what makes you think they won't be able to get guns -- especially if they are intent on committing murder.

To be effective in combating the misinformation and anti-rights attacks citizens face from children on a bus tour, mass media that reports total distortion on gun issues, and neighbors and friends whose understanding is lower than their shoe size, read in plain English what our gun laws are:

Why Are Kids Killing Kids?

The lamestream media told you:

We need common-sense gun laws to stop the mass murders we are seeing across this great country. If only we had more gun laws. The big bully NRA is stopping Congress from doing the right thing. That's the problem. Imagine how much peace we would have if only we could get these weapons-of-war off our streets, with more laws. Maybe these kids on the march now, completely self-motivated, will finally come up with an answer.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Laws don't stop criminals. Laws describe punishment after criminals act. This simple truth is lost on many people who are uneducated, or cannot think straight, even after they're educated. More laws don't change these facts.

The children's March for our Lives, including the 20-state, 75-city tour supposedly set up by themselves as a summer jaunt, is heralded as a solution. For reasons that were unexplained at press time, they offer the same solutions the gun-control advocates have offered for decades -- more background checks, bans and confiscations of scary black guns, a new ban on bump stocks (a plastic item used in one unresolved crime in Sin City), and a proposed ban on additional resource officers (armed police) in schools. Also, assaults on the NRA and discrimination against anyone having anything to do with the NRA.

The NRA is the largest gun-safety organization on the planet. They are the ones who promote the gun-safety rules, teach the gun-safety trainers, formulate the policies that lead to decreases in firearm accidents.

The people who work there want their kids protected at school as much as you or anyone else. The idea that mass media could propose such a preposterous lie ("the NRA wants kids dead!" is stunning, shows the insanity of the left. It doesn't even make sense. The NRA stands stalwart against anti-rights activists who want to deny the Bill of Rights. What's wrong with that is the people who want the Bill of Rights abolished, not its defense.

According to one leading expert, kids are killing each other because society is teaching them not only to do so but how to do so. Every fiber of pop culture is filled with that message. Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, who has taught our armed forces to get over their inhibitions about killing sees it, and has documented it, in his amazing book,"Stop Teaching Our Kids to Kill." This book will shock you. You may not be strong enough to read it.


STOP TEACHING OUR KIDS TO KILL
 
By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Gloria DeGaetano 240 p. #ST $15

add_to_cart.gif  view_cart.gif

 


It's not just fun and games when Hollywood's super stars run around machine-gunning each other with glee, blowing each other's brains out at close range in full color with splat effects, or doing that bullet-death-dance they do.

Kids learn from this. There is no moral component to mass murder any longer. It's right there on the screen. The methods and tactics for killing and getting away are taught in movies, video games and especially, on TV every night. You switch channels and every click brings another gun, another murder, more death and no consequence. This has a consequence.

Grossman documents this with medical-, psychological- and combat-accurate references page after page. You will learn from this book. You will be outraged. You will have the verbal ammunition you need to fight back. He even provides phone numbers. You want to stop our kids from killing each other? Get a few of these and give them to your liberal friends who think guns are the problem. What a laugh that is.

Guns Are A Public Health BENEFIT

CDC Continues to be banned from interference

For good reason

The lamestream media told you:

The corrupt and detestable Republicans keep blocking funds for the federal government to do valuable research into gun violence and prevention of gun crime. This has been going on for decades.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

What are the chances the CDC, banned for decades from doing gun research, because it’s work is little more than gun-control propaganda, would ever come up with a result like the headline on this article? Guns are indeed a public health benefit. Guns are why America is still free.

It turns out that psychopathology, schizophrenia, psychosis, and the whole host of certifiable mental states that lead to violent crime and outbursts of insanity, leading to death and destruction, can be cured by “lead poisoning” -- criminals getting shot by armed citizens. Because guns stop crime and keep people safe, it is scientifically proven that gun ownership has a public health benefit. Doctors and researches might argue over the size of the benefit, or the comparative value of the benefit, but it is definitely there.

The CDC has never come close to recognizing any benefit from the “germs of guns” or the "disease" of gun ownership. It’s no wonder they are banned from inserting their known bias into the field, and calling it research. Only democrats campaign for re-injecting their bad medicine into the field. For them, it’s an alternate avenue of attack on fundamental civil rights, by groups with no legitimate value for American jurisprudence, looking for new ways to take away your guns, something they swear they will not do.

You're the Loser -- or Winner

The lamestream media told you:

The blue wave is going to take over the government. Once democrats control the House they plan to impeach the president. Nothing will stop them. We told you so. They'll eliminate the filibuster rule the republicans idiotically maintain because they have principles. Dems don't. Just watch. The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

ATTENTION:

If you belong to a shooting club, a hunt club, a wildlife club, Ducks Unlimited, Western Turkey something, Single Action Shooting Sports, Three Gun whatever, IPSC, the alphabet our-side soup --

and you’re not registered to vote, or you don’t vote,

YOU PERSONALLY will be responsible for everyone else losing their right to keep and bear arms.

Left-wing billionaires are doing everything they can to rob you of your rights.

To make sure their armed servants have guns, to protect them, and you have nothing.

The bill to ban the AR-15, that school kids think they want, bans anything with a magazine and a grip. It's true. They don't know that. Maybe you don't either.

Elections matter. You matter -- unless you don’t vote.
I don’t know how to be more clear.

You are already on the government list -- because you get mail.

You have a phone, a TV with reception -- "they" know who you are.

Figure out how to register, where to vote, and vote.

You have four months.

You’ve been warned. Now back to our regularly scheduled program.

Infringement Is Illegal

The lamestream media told you:

We must ban guns. Especially the AR-15. And guns with magazines. And repeal the Second Amendment. No one needs a gun. There are so many stories in the so-called "news" calling for gun bans it is pointless to point to any particular ones. The journalism ethic that requires covering all sides of a story is completely abandoned, no where to be found. All the good guns do, all the lives saved and crimes prevented, are suppressed. When a mass murderer was shot dead outside a diner in Ohio the other day, reporters flocked to the scene after hearing of people shot, then fled when they learned the criminal had been shot by a permit holder.

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

Calls to outlaw guns, gun possession, accessories and similar wild-eyed notions now percolating through a portion of our youth and culture are... illegal.

So called “news” media, involved in whipping up the public and unsuspecting youngsters into a frenzy to ban gun types, gun parts, all guns, and places where people can have guns for all legal purposes -- like defense against murderers -- are an affront to our society and our Constitution. When did teachers lose their right to keep and bear arms exactly? The guarantees of The U.S. Bill of Rights can just be... lost?

Unless you decide to give up on the rule of law, and simply enact anything by mob rule, guns can’t simply be banned, as television is campaigning for. People could begin a new country based on utopian socialist rule with no leadership, no charter, and the will of the people simply expressed day-to-day by vote, that’s conceivable. But America cannot legitimately ban guns already in the public’s hands by passing laws, to appease loud children.

We get that the kids are scared, and should be, they’ve been let down. That doesn’t erase the rule of law.

If stopping crazed, psychotic mass murderers who take it on themselves to spree murder their classmates is the goal, that’s a good goal.

Loud youngsters who think disarming the public will somehow accomplish that goal are not mature enough to understand that first, -- it won’t work, and second, the adults egging them on in the media and politics are manipulative SOBs worse than their worst parents.

Those adults are using what amounts to a national tantrum to accomplish the adults’ goal -- not the children’s goal. The so-called “news” media has disguised or totally hidden this revealing truth. Journalists have become virtually as much an enemy of the nation’s health as the murderers themselves. That’s a hard thing to say, as a journalist myself.

Here’s a secret. Everyone wants to stop sociopathic students from murdering their classmates at school. It shouldn’t be a secret. The hated NRA wants to stop that. Do you really think they’re devils who want their own kids at that kind of risk? If you do, you’ve been sold a bill of goods. Remember the secret -- Everyone wants to stop sociopathic students from murdering their classmates at school.

Here’s the bottom line. Banning a firearm a person already owns is infringement, simply by definition. Doing that is banned in America, it’s why we’re the linchpin of freedom on the planet. It’s why oppressed masses flock here, and always have, though schools no longer teach this. They used to, when America was at its peak.

Attempting to take such a firearm away -- government confiscation of the public’s guns is aggravated infringement, felony-level criminal activity. It is exactly what government cannot legitimately do. It’s where peaceful rule of law ends and tyranny begins: gun-taking. Gun-taking kindles revolts, around the world, and if it goes too far, it could happen here. Disarming the innocent doesn’t set well with the innocent. The reverse is true too -- you can’t arm slaves and expect them to remain slaves.

State by state, we are going to see an effort to put aggravated infringement into statute so offending officials can be charged and imprisoned if they attempt to infringe on this fundamental constitutional right. Banning guns is on the same par as banning gays, blacks, speech, Bibles -- you just can’t do that here.

It doesn’t matter how many votes you can manipulate or cajole with phony logic. “Majority rules, minority protected,” you remember that, right? It means you can’t strip the Bill of Rights with a legislative vote.

People who do so or attempt to do so need to be subject to defined penalties. Like any other civil and human rights violation. We actually have 18 USC §241, and 18 USC §242 for this, they just need some backup, and enforcement (q.v., denial of constitutional or statutory rights is a crime). Read those short, crystalline statutes.

The noise level is rising to a dangerous pitch. Attempting to disarm the public is what has, throughout history, led to either revolution or genocide. Americans want neither. The loud children want neither either, they just don’t know it. They know not what they do, and their handlers are keeping them quietly in the dark.

The Andersons and Wolves are incomprehensibly keeping them ignorant, and maybe they are themselves. I’m reluctant to join my colleagues who see it for an evil agenda, and the markings could easily be read that way. At the least the mass media culprits should lose their licenses to broadcast. Oh, that’s right—they are unlicensed operators.

Banning guns already in the public’s hands is infringement. Attempting to take an infringed item is aggravated infringement. Attempting to take an infringed item is where chilling phrases like, “Bullets first!” and “From my cold dead fingers!” arise. This country does not want to go there. Someone tell the kids.

BACKGROUND CHECKS -- JUST LIKE "RED FLAG" LAWS

Identify Serious Criminals, Then Turn Them Loose

They're standing in the store, trying to buy guns, FBI's on the phone

Is this what "97% of the public" actually supports? Do they even know?

The lamestream media told you:

Do you support background checks? It's the biggest gun question of the day. Mass media insists virtually everyone does. How could any rational person not support background checks?

The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:

1. After two decades of background checks, inner city gangs are all thoroughly armed. The checks have failed. Plus, we have 6,000 gangland rubouts every year, maybe you've noticed. And there are no 6,000 murder trials for the 6,000 murderers. Is that what everyone supports?

2. The muslim jihad is pretty much unaffected by the background checks. The jihad mass murder in the Florida gay nightclub, the "workplace violence" (Obama's term for the jihad), no effect from the background checks. Is that what everyone supports?

3. The psychotic children who want to mass murder their class mates, they aren't even addressed by background checks, and we all want to fix that problem. Why are we even talking about background checks when murderous classmates are what we want to fix? Isn't the mass media missing something there? Shouldn't someone ask them about that?

4. The background check collects the names of 10 to 12 million innocent Americans who purchase firearms every year, who didn't do anything. What does that have to do with stopping mass murderers, or any crime? Is that a good use of scarce resources? Does that have a sinister ulterior motive like its critics claim -- a list of gun owners kept by big government? Can we audit that system? (No, government tell us, just trust us, we're honest.)

5. And of course the biggest problem. Murderers, rapists, parolees, escapees, fugitives, kidnappers, arsonists, thieves, even illegal aliens and DACA students who walk into gun stores, cash in hand, seeking to buy guns -- which is at least five years in the federal slammer. They fill out forms with their names and addresses, and with the FBI on the phone, while they're standing there, get turned down. What happens next? They get sent away, with their money. Still eager to buy guns.

Is that what everyone supports?

Is that what the mass media makes clear when they conduct their polls?

The background check plan is a scam.

The only thing the background check does effectively is collect the names of innocent Americans who buy constitutionally protected products, that create a balance of power between the public and the government.
