Ringstaff opts for PC with “we will not tolerate” guns in Cleveland City schools statement

In Uncategorized on February 13, 2013 at 10:27 AM

This week, the Cleveland TN City School Board has voted 7 to 0 to not allow guns in our city schools to protect our children.

The only exception made was that police resource officers may carry guns on city school property.

A move that essentially leaves your child as vulnerable today as it did yesterday. Politically speaking the city school board debated and voted to essentially make no new improvements or improve upon the security inside our city public schools and have given the teachers no added avenues to protect our children.

I agree that not every teacher has the desire or personality needed to confront an armed gunman face to face. The fact remains that many of our teachers are veterans and ex or current law enforcement officers and have more than enough training to yield a gun to protect our kids.

In the aftermath of Newtown and Sandy Hook and dozens of other horrible incidents in our schools, concerned citizens and taxpayers are asking for increased protection. That request has not only been ignored it has been stated and voted upon that we “will not tolerate” guns in our schools.

This to me means that only bad guys with guns will be allowed in our schools. Look at the message this sends.

I am assuming Mr Ringstaff and the school board will also have concerns about the most recent bill that is forging ahead that allows guns in parking lots for the safety of the teachers who travel back and forth.

In a world that is accepting of political correctness, the Cleveland city school board has obliged and have severely missed the mark. The opportunity to demonstrate to the community that your child’s safety is in our best interest was lost in the hopes to look politically correct in the eyes of a growing leftist viewpoint.

What a world we live in where the leaders of the city of Cleveland Tennessee are so attuned to the daily drumbeat from the White House that the safety factor is ignored for our children for the sake of not looking confrontational to the policies coming from DC.

Why not just choose to not make a statement at all Mr Ringstaff or how about making a statement such as the safety of our kids in our schools are of utmost importance and we will continue to protect them as we have for years, with guns, may I remind you. Anyone approaching our property with the intent to harm will be met with deadly force.

Instead, we get the PC version directly from the Socialist playbook, we will not tolerate guns in our schools, with exceptions.

Where is the day when leaders stood up and were accountable? Where is a community that cries out when a director of schools makes a statement that leads to absolutely not one added barrier of added security to protect your children but does allow for his anti gun rhetoric to flourish although the community is crying out for you to take action.

I am puzzled.

Let’s hope and pray in spite of our elected and appointed leaders that we do not have disasters such as aforementioned. Let’s make a conscious decision to hold our leaders completely accountable for any breeches o safety upon our kids. Hopefully this outcry will spawn action. The message that your desire to be PC is crippling this country and is leaving our children less safe.

I pray down an order of protection around our schools, obviously our leaders have chosen to do otherwise with this recent action.

This blog is only my opinion and if you read and disagree, I challenge you to tell me what they have done with this vote and a missed opportunity to protect our children.

If you are completely honest with your self, I’m sure you will come to the same conclusion as me and that is:

No added barriers of safety were decided and voted upon that further protect our children. Only a politically correct gun control statement was made and nothing else.

I digress for now, because I am bewildered!

HB 42- Rep Joe Carr files bill to criminalize federal agents who enforce gun control laws

In Uncategorized on January 29, 2013 at 9:31 AM

Representative Joe Carr seems to be listening to the will of the people and separating himself as a willing and able leader in the gun control battle being waged by a very liberal socialist left.

While many in the state house, Congress and top federal seats remain mostly quiet, one representative steps out as a leader on the issue.

Let’s step out of our comfort zone and support this legislation to criminalize any federal agent who attempts to enforce illegal, unconstitutional gun ban laws being created in DC. it is time we step up and support those who put their necks out for our rights. We must be there when they step up and are sure to be attacked by many even within their own parties.

State Representative Joe Carr 48TH Legislative District Lascassas, TN.

State Representative Joe Carr, from Tennessee’s 48th District filed legislation Tuesday, House Bill 0042, that would charge any Federal agent with a Class A Misdemeanor for enforcing or attempting to enforce a federal law, statute, rule, regulation or executive order that bans, restricts or requires the registration of any semi automatic firearm, firearm accessory or ammunition.

“In light of recent comments and actions taken by President Obama and Vice President Biden, I believe it is necessary that Tennessee proactively promote, maintain and defend Tennessee’s sovereignty guaranteed to it in the 10th Amendment of the Constitution. Additionally this most blatant assault on the 2nd Amendment by the Obama Administration is a systematic effort to disarm the law biding citizens of the United States. The 2nd Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights which was intended to protect the individual and the states from the tyranny of government,” stated Representative Carr.

Carr also said, “The 2nd Amendment is not meant just for hunters, it specifically states that ‘A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed’, therefore, the Federal government shall not through law or executive order infringe upon our Constitutional-given rights as citizens of the United States and the Great State of Tennessee.”

Recently, Carr announced the formation of the 10th Amendment Caucus, a group he co-founded with State Representative Judd Matheny from Tennessee’s 47th District. The Caucus will be focused on advancing the Constitutional requirement for states to maintain, promote and defend the 10th Amendment. Additionally, Carr is the architect and author of almost all Illegal Immigration laws in Tennessee. Due to his efforts, Tennessee has some of the strongest enforceable immigration laws in the United States.

UN and Obama prepare for March vote to take our guns

In Agenda 21 on December 5, 2012 at 5:06 PM

If you read no further than the copied paragraph below you have gone far enough to alert you to what OBAMA and the UN are planning come March on the International stage.

Remember, and I have told you many times. The United Nations will eventually be our international governing body. They will soon rule us from an international platform taking our sovereignty and our Constitution with it unless we stop it!

Here is the most recent list of actions the UN and your fake president will be voting on in March. If you choose to sleep, hug your gun closely and prepare to let her go!

*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

Dear fellow Patriot,

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.

You see, only hours after re-election, Barack Obama immediately made a move for gun control…

On November 7th, his administration gleefully voted at the UN for a renewed effort to pass the “Small Arms Treaty.”

I don’t know about you, but watching anti-American globalists plot against our Constitution makes me sick.

What’s worse, the UN set March 18th-28th to meet to pass the final version of the treaty that will be sent to the Senate for ratification.

You and I will only have a few short months to prepare for this battle…

If we’re to succeed, we must fight back now.

That’s why I’m helping lead the fight to defeat the UN “Small Arms Treaty” in the United States Senate.

And it’s why I need your help today.

Will you join me by taking a public stand against the UN “Small Arms Treaty” and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey right away?

Ultimately, UN bureaucrats will stop at nothing to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept many of their schemes under wraps.

But looking at previous attempts by the UN to pass global gun control, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.

You can bet the UN is working to FORCE the U.S. to implement every single one of these anti-gun policies:
*** Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

*** CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);

*** BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;

*** Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.

Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.

These anti-gun globalists know that as long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.

That’s why I was so excited to see the National Association for Gun Rights leading the fight to stop the UN “Small Arms Treaty!”

Will you join them by going on record AGAINST global gun control and sign the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey today?

The truth is there’s no time to waste.

You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical agenda.

They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.

In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat them when they make their move in March.

And worse… the UN Small Arms Treaty is no longer the only UN scheme threatening our gun rights.

More and more of the UN’s radical agenda is slipping through covertly, under the cover of domestic legislation.

Not long ago, Obama told Sarah Brady from the anti-gun Brady Campaign, “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control].  We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

In fact, Hillary Clinton’s State Department recently bragged that Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious are implementations of the UN’s anti-gun agenda!

And I’d place a wager that Obama’s M1 Rifle Re-importation Ban was also the UN’s agenda dutifully executed by his administration.

Anti-gun UN policy that NEVER received a single vote in the United States Congress!

The UN will meet soon to pass a final version of the “Small Arms Treaty” to be sent for ratification by the Senate.

But even worse than a renewed mandate, the General Assembly could vote by simple majority to implement the “Small Arms Treaty.”

This would bypass any further meetings and would allow them to insist that member states ratify the treaty immediately.

So if you and I are going to defeat them, we have to turn the heat up on Washington now before it’s too late!
1. Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?

2. Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes!” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

But I hope you’ll do more than just sign your survey today.

With your help, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue to turn up the heat on targeted Senators who are working to implement the UN “Small Arms Treaty.”

Direct mail.  Phones.  E-mail.  Blogs.  Guest editorials.  Press conferences.  Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits.  The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.

But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat the UN’s schemes, pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!

So please put yourself on record AGAINST the UN Gun Ban by signing NAGR’s Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.

And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

Here is the survey to take to send a strong message to the US Senate that our 2nd Amendment rights are not negotiable.
