In another display of the overwhelming power of the public school system, a Tennessee father was arrested for trying to pick his child up from school at the end of the day. The dad arrived by foot to pick his son up from school at 2:00pm, the school’s dismissal time. However, he was told that he could not walk his son out due to a new school policy of only dismissing car riders at 2:00pm. Any student walking has to wait until 2:35pm to leave. The father pointed out that the new policy was likely intended for kids walking home alone – not for children whose parents are there to walk them out.
Unfortunately for everyone, the school resource officer was in the office at the same time and decided that the father was being belligerent and rude. He warned the dad that he would be arrested if he didn’t stop agitating for his son’s release.
When the father insisted that he did not need a reason to take his son out of school and that the school has no legal grounds to keep his son until 2:35, the officer pressed forward.
“I’m going to call some help down here and we’re going to take you up to the jail right now… I’m not putting up with this today. You’re being childish and it’s uncalled for.”
In the end, the father does not back down from his argument. The school has no right to hold his son against his parents’ will – which is when the officer arrests him for being “disorderly.” Fortunately for us, it was all caught on video, and we can see just how long the arms of the law can be – even unjust law.
With Mr. Obama and his allies attacking the right to keep and bear arms from a dozen angles at once, the anti-rights forces in America have overlooked the Undetectable Handgun Law of 1988, set to expire on Dec. 3, less than six weeks away. (Google 18 USC §922(p) for the letter of the law.)
If the law expires as it is scheduled to do, airports and all secure areas could be exposed to guns that metal detectors cannot identify.
Although no such guns exist (in the commercial world) and have never been available to the public, the “news” media created a furor over the non-existent firearms when the polymer-framed Glock pistol was introduced, spreading fear that such weapons could be smuggled into airports past all known screening devices. The Glock and all similar polymer-framed firearms contain large amounts of steel and are easily spotted by metal detectors.
The chances that Congress will let the statute expire are near zero, a quick survey of industry experts indicates. But the subject hasn’t hit the public radar yet, and simple reenactment of a federal gun law is a risky bet, given the present administration’s penchant for introducing gun mandates at any opportunity.
Any bill that must get through both houses of Congress becomes a magnet for amendments and agenda-driven add-ons. A gun bill will be particularly susceptible to that pressure. Only one tiny change will be needed, the same one made last time this expiration came up. The number of years in the sunset clause on this 1988 law, now “25,” will have to increase to whatever new date Congress chooses. They went from 15 to 25 last time.
However – no plans for renewal of the expiring “invisible” gun ban have been announced by either major political party. The expiration date, however, is set in stone by the existing law. If the law does expire, someone somewhere is likely to try to develop and introduce an undetectable gun (outside the world of superspies).
Two bills were introduced, one back in April, HR1474, which extended the ban for another 10 years and added undetectable ammo magazines, and S1149 in June, which also extends the ban for 10 years with similar conditions. Neither bill has gone anywhere. Undetectable guns and magazines doesn’t say much about undetectable ammo, but no one expects Congress to be very logical about any of this.
The expiration date is just 11 days prior to nationwide events planned to recognize the calamity surrounding the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. Both pro-rights and anti-rights groups have announced intentions to use that date to press for action on gun rights in America. Efforts to restrict Americans’ right to arms, using the actions of the psychopath on that day as a motivation, have thus far failed.
Second Event Also on Dec. 3
By coincidence, Dec. 3 has been set by the Arizona Court of Appeals to hear oral arguments in the Guns Save Lives censorship case, with the Goldwater Institute’s Scharf-Norton Center for Constitutional Litigation representing plaintiff Alan Korwin and TrainMeAZ, LLC. TrainMeAZ is a coalition of firearm industry firms working together to promote gun safety. http://www.trainmeaz.com
The red-heart Guns Save Lives logo at the center of the case has been adopted as a theme for Gun Save Lives Day, a response to the events planned for restricting gun rights timed around the Newtown demonstrations. When this counter protest was announced, the lamestream media went apoplectic, spewing bile and vitriol at the pro-rights people.
Politico reported Monday Oct. 28 that weekly sessions on gun control have been held between the White House Office of Public Engagement and representatives from Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Guns, the Brady Campaign to Promote Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action, the Center for American Progress, Organizing for Action and Americans for Responsible Solutions. It is understood that demonstrations and calls for new restrictions on gun rights tied to the Newtown date are part of those planning sessions.
To the extent government operatives are at work compromising the Second Amendment instead of supporting it, they violate their oath and should be removed from office or brought up on charges. This may seem quaint but it matters. No one in government is taking any action against this fifth column-type of activity.

President Donald Trump will hold a rally for D.C. establishment Senator Luther Strange tonight in Alabama even though Alabama voters who still support Trump have said grassroots conservative Senate candidate Roy Moore is the candidate who is more aligned with the agenda that got Trump elected to the White House.
HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – In case there was any doubt, President Donald Trump can still draw a big crowd in the Yellowhammer State. Trump visited the Rocket City Friday night to stump for Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who is in a hotly contested runoff against former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore for the GOP’s nod in a U.S. Senate special election. […]
President Donald Trump, speaking Friday at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama, for Luther Strange – his choice to take Jeff Sessions's former seat in the U.S. Senate – acknowledged that populist elements of his coalition may not go along with his pick, as he took shots at them.
Shortly before the start of a rally for Alabama candidate for U.S. Senate Luther Strange featuring President Donald Trump, Breitbart News TV editor Jeff Poor was initially denied entry, despite assurances from the Strange campaign directly to Breitbart News that there would not be any problem getting in.
In the final days of the Alabama special GOP primary runoff for U.S. Senate, appointed Sen. Luther Strange resorted to an inflammatory TV spot strongly implying his opponent Roy Moore shielded a child molester from justice and downplayed the seriousness of child sex abuse as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
Should Graham-Cassidy, the latest manifestation of the seven-year Republican promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, manage to pass the Senate next week, ironically enough, conservatives will owe a debt of thanks to Sen. John McCain.
Citizens of several foreign countries will be denied visas to enter the United States because their home governments have refused to share information about the identity of prospective visitors, officials say. A report listing non-cooperative governments — likely including several Islamic governments such as Iran — was forwarded to the White House on Friday, […]
Friday on Huntsville, AL talk radio WVNN’s “The Dale Jackson Show,” host Dale Jackson told Alabama voters that they could send President Donald Trump a message by voting against Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) in the upcoming Alabama Senate election. “If you’re looking to send a message, the message is sent through giving Donald Trump a big loss,” stated Jackson. […]
Despite many adult refugees pretending to be migrant minors, testing is too “frightening” to be allowed, they say. Men seeking asylum have often posed as migrant minors. Such men have committed sexual assault. Since migrant minors get more benefits from the European governments, they have a powerful incentive to lie about their age. A study […]
Just like they do in America, Liberals brand their opponents as “Neo-Nazis”—which may get embarrassing. With the aid of the media, Angela Merkel’s fellow politicians are claiming the opponents of their open borders regime are “Neo-Nazis.” That may get embarrassing because these “Neo-Nazis” are likely to gain office for the first time. That will force […] […]
Things are heating up in Trumpland as Alabama citizens prepare to vote for the next U.S. Senator from the Heart of Dixie state. Trump is campaigning for Luther Strange, but Judge Roy Moore is the guy he should be backing. As Breitbart points out, Senators threatened to retire if Moore won in order to get […]

Jay-Z is among the Hollywood elite who think they are above everyone else. He literally refers to himself as God. His self proclaimed nickname is Hova, short for J–Hova. Which you can easily see is a play on the word Jehovah (Hebrew word for God). Surprise, he is also a Black Lives Matter advocate, along with […]
Apparently Professor Garrett Avila-Nichols forgot what class was, or he never really knew what it was to begin with. Liberals preach tolerance, unless you don’t agree with what they have to say. Then they become extremely intolerant. For example Professor Avila-Nichols at Bridgewater State University posted an explicit rant about Trump supporters saying that […]

When I was in elementary school, we got spanked by the teacher if we misbehaved in class. Now granted, that was two decades ago and less politically correct. We minded our manners, said “Yes, sir” and “No, ma’am”, and we got a swift swat on the butt if we acted up. If you ask me, […]

RUSH: Your view probably is special and a little bit minority view in terms of numbers. But I will ponder it. Because elements of what you say are absolutely true in terms of history. They do organize, they do practice, rehearse. They do pay protesters to come in. There are scripts. I'm glad you called.
