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.
Alan Korwin is the author of Gun Laws of America and The Uninvited Ombudsman

A new Facebook propaganda initiative promises to develop a “center” that will protect us from “fake news.” Facebook propaganda, to be effective, must be perceived as neutral, impartial activity.

Leftists need to elect Democrat Governors, but they should have been concerned back in 2010. It is understandable that the Left would want more Democrat governors to help with redistricting battles and other issues. But the fact that they only now recognize the problem means the Democrats have been missing the boat since 2010, at […]

No wonder immigrants aren’t assimilating into Transgender Sweden! They still believe in male and female. According to a new Vice documentary, Sweden is a “forward thinking” nation that has tax-supported “genderless” schools for young children. It bans speech (“enforcing gender stereotypes”) in order to produce a genderless society (or is it an excuse to prod […]
Michelle Obama (or is it Michael Obama?) claims she is a sex symbol. My question is, of what sex and what species? Because she certainly is not an attractive woman.

RUSH: So Trump decided to ban transgenders from the military to get me off his back. Yeah, I think a lot of people miss this show. This is crazy! I'm sure Trump and his team have been thinking about this for years. Ahem. But, seriously, to get me off his back about Sessions? (laughing) But this is how they think.
RUSH: It turns out this guy had fingerprints all over a bunch of other Democrats in the House and their computers, their network operations. This is where the serious breach of security occurred. This is where the Russians got in. This guy may have facilitated it.
RUSH: This is not a sop from Trump to his base. His base is not made up of exclusive conservatives or right-wingers or conservative social issues people. His base is a wide swath of people in this country and many of them are not doctrinaire conservatives. Many of them are not even ideological. They're simply unhappy with what's been going on in Wa […]
RUSH: There's something else that's going on here. I don't claim to know what it is. I'm just telling you that, to me, none of it makes sense... There may be reasons for it, but we don't know what they are. There's always more behind the scenes to every event than we will ever know. So trying to make substantive analysis and jud […]

The real bombast is not here. The real […]

RUSH: Minimum wage hikes kill jobs. Attacking businesses with new “feel-good” regulations kills jobs. Creating more government programs grows government, not the economy. There’s nothing the Democrats are offering now that they haven’t offered before.
RUSH: Scaramucci was on Fox. TheHill.com has the story, but he was on Fox News today. Scaramucci said Obama holdovers are responsible for the leaks. I'm telling you, folks, this is what I think this is.
