Supreme Court Again Ducks a Second Amendment Ruling

Posted on October 16, 2013

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear another case dealing with arbitrary ‘may-issue’ concealed carry laws, marking at least the fourth time in the past several years the high court has opted not to settle the issue as to whether one’s right to keep and bear arms extends beyond the home.

The case, Woollard v. Sheridan, directly challenged Maryland’s concealed carry law which requires that applicants have a “good and substantial reason” for wanting to obtain a CCW permit.

The plaintiff in the case, Raymond Woollard of Baltimore County, was denied a handgun permit after the Maryland Handgun Permit Review Board determined that he “…ha[d] not submitted any documentation to verify threats occurring beyond his residence, where he can already legally carry a handgun.”

    Was there a rape in his city? A robbery? A mugging? Car theft? Bank holdup? Fraud? Identity theft? Assault?

    If yes to any, then a threat exists, and he has the right to keep and bear.

    The cure for this type of problem?

    REMOVE any and ALL body guards or any other type of security from any and ALL government employees at any level.

    FORCE them to obey the same laws they think we should obey and watch the schreeching and hair pulling begin.

    EVERY 'first responder' should be armed and trained.

    The 'victim' is ALWAYS the 'first responder'.

  3. They are only the 'high court' by proclamation and deception – the fact is they are USURPERS and traitors to even MANS system, but what do you expect when they take which is HOLY (GODS) and proclaim it theirs under a different set of standards. DISGUISED as An ANGEL of light coming in to deceive you – had you known Yahweh's LAWS, STATUTES, JUDGMENTS with a heart that seeks truth in love & harmony – then this deception would have been obvious… otherwise, you will just discount ALL reason and equity in order to serve your fleshly SIN nature & God says COOL just GO AHEAD and you will receive your just rewards.

    To understand this basic principle of self defense – all one must do is be intellectually honest with integrity of a 3rd party inspector towards yourself.

    DOES ONE have a right / obligation & duty / permission to defend himself or others against violent physical attacks?

    THREE choices
    Duty & Obligation

    Which is it and why – ?

    A careful investigation into that question will eventually lead to a conclusion… which is you RESPECT life there is one conclusion and if you do not respect life, you have the other position.

    So, are all you constitutionalists, that wave the flag for the dead constitution and its dieing 2nd. Amendment going to write (crawl) to this state's (god's) Permit Review Board and tell them they should stop interfering with people's "right" to get a C.C.W. permit ???

    Oh, but don't worry. Your "Supreme Court" will save you. 'Been working pretty good so far, right? Well, it does so, so, if you have several hundred thousand to spend on "legal fees" and can wait a few years.

    I've seen so many people that are concerned for their "right" to be armed, fall for this trap of C.C.W. PERMIT, and a trap it is.

    If you need a permit, then it's not a "right", now is it ??   

    Oh, and don't forget to fill out the necessary paperwork for your back round check to make sure you've been good little boys and girls, as well as come back after the waiting period; you know, just to make sure you weren't going to do anything rash with that new weapon, and if you were, you'll have had sufficient time to calm down.   My, that god the state sure know how to watch over its little chillins, now doesn't it ?

    Instead of going to the god (name a state) for permission to do anything, this nation needs to turn back to The Great I Am that became flesh and dwelt among us and seek His Will/Kingdom on earth.   

    The King of kings says it's just fine with Him for His people to carry concealed (or open) without another god's (government's) permission.   His is all that matters!

    Remember Ehud in the Book of Judges ?

    Wake Up, It's Dead:

    It's time to wake up Constitutionalists.   Wake up Constitutionalists.  Come on, wake up, wake up Constitutionalists.  Coffee's brewing.   Take a big whiff Constitutionalists.   You're just dreaming, Constitutionalists.   In fact, you have to wake up RIGHT NOW, because the police are here and they have everyone in the whole city under "lock down".   

    They're POUNDING ON THE DOOR, telling us we have to come out while they search the house for a 19 year old patsy they're blaming ANOTHER false flag event on.  Wake up Constitutionalists.  Come on Constitutionalists, wake up.  Wake up.  Wake up.

    Your Constitutional Republic died decades ago and was turned into a Communist Republic.   

    Give this a try: Tell me about all the things you're "free" to do without getting permits, licenses, etc. ????   

    Try and add or build something on "your" property without asking permission !!!

    “The Communist Manifesto” and The Ten Planks contained therein is the system our enemy was allowed to slowly ensnare us with. Here’s just a few examples, but they’re all in full force and effect in the U.S.S.A:

    1st. Plank:  Property tax  (Abolition of the right to property – land rent)
    2nd.: Graduated Income tax.
    3rd.: Inheritance tax. (Abolition of the right to inheritance)
    5th.: Central Bank in control of credit & currency (Federal Reserve Bank)
    10th. Free compulsory education (indoctrination via the public fool system)

    And now it's morphed into Corporate Fascism.

    Those are just a few examples of the results of this nation's being deceived by the enemy to think we know better than The Almighty and should usurp His Law making power, which is to be EXCLUSIVE TO HIM.

    The sooner this reality is recognized and repentance for usurping the power of lawmaking from Whom it rightfully belongs, the sooner things will turn around for the better.

    The only way to save this nation is to turn back to Him, His Perfect Moral Laws, Statutes and Judgments, i.e., His Kingdom/Will On Earth. Seek Him while He may yet be found. 

    Look around, the judgments are happening before your eyes.

  5. See my comment below.

  6. Just make the rules about bodyguards the same as CCW. Whatever proof you need to carry, you would also need to hire a bodyguard who carries.

  7. Point of clarification: The Chris making this reply/comment to you is a different "Chris" and did not post my comment below that I I referred you to:

    " Just make the rules about bodyguards the same as CCW. Whatever proof you need to carry, you would also need to hire a bodyguard who carries. "

    No one in this Goernemnt has the spine to do anything because it is the right thing to do. That includes all three branches of the Government. This Government will fail. We will have to let it fail and crumble and fall apart and then begin to build it back, and we must do that under the principals set fourth by our Creator, our Lord God and Jesus Christ. This Governemnt will fail because it has forced us away from Him. We at the grass roots must keep our faith with Him and maybe he will have some mercy on those of us that do when he puts an end to this monstrosity. All those morons in the Government had to do was to follow the rules set out by our founding fathers, but oh know, they had to be the biggest morons on earth, and here we are now, a failing socitey with no hope of righting the ship. Our Government is totally controlled by MORONS, and we all will have to pay for it.
