Idaho House approves bill to make gun confiscation a criminal offense

:

The Idaho House has approved a measure that makes it a misdemeanor for government and law officials to enforce any new federal firearms laws including bans and registrations.

, or the "Idaho Federal Firearm, Magazine and Register Ban Enforcement Act," approved Monday 55 – 13, could bring fines of up to $1,000 and a year jail time to any local officials who engage in confiscation, including assistance in such acts with any federal agents.

The bill's  also explains the bill's job in protecting police:

"The legislation also protects Idaho law enforcement officers from their supervisors ordering them to violate this statute. Supervisors doing so would be in violation of this law and officers would not have to follow such an order. Idaho law enforcement officers are partners with Idaho citizens in protecting the rights as outlined in both the U.S. and Idaho Constitutions. This bill demonstrates the commitment of Idaho's law enforcement officers to Idaho citizens and the legislature's commitment to protect Idaho law enforcement officers from being forced to violate their oath of office."

Proposed WA law would allow the sheriff to inspect the homes of gun owners

Overreach much? Sheesh.

In California they are confiscating tens of thousands of legally purchased firearms while in Washington state a new law has been proposed that would allow the sheriff to inspect the homes of an assault weapon owner one time per year. How far will gun regulations go?

Christianity under fire as a crime against humanity

Another report of , very similar to .

This should bring around anyone who doubts that “human rights” has become a euphemism for 

An American pastor is facing a federal lawsuit filed by a George Soros-funded organization alleging that the pastor’s messages on homosexuality are a “crime against humanity” — a lawsuit that some Christians fear might have far-reaching consequences for church mission groups.

The Bible repeatedly  homosexuality in the strongest possible terms. Evidently, that would make the book that has served as Western Civilization’s keel for the last 2,000 years a crime against humanity.

Scott Lively, a Massachusetts pastor known for his opposition to homosexuality, was sued by Sexual Minorities Uganda (SMUG). They claim that he incited the persecution of homosexuals in Uganda.

Lively traveled to Uganda in 2009 where he delivered messages that shared his Biblical views on homosexuality.

A handful of myths explained

has five myths about automatic weapons, buying guns online, background checks, assault rifles and more.

Myth : You can buy automatic weapons at any gun shop

This is completely and utterly false. Automatic weapons are highly regulated, extremely expensive ($15,000+) and VERY difficult to acquire. They're also extremely rare and have NEVER been used in any school shooting in America.

Just to acquire an "automatic weapon," you must go through extensive background checks and fingerprinting. You must apply to the federal government (ATF) for permission, then wait six months or longer to be "approved" by the ATF.

I don't own any automatic weapons and have no desire to. Automatic weapons are wildly inaccurate. Even soldiers almost never use automatic fire. They almost always use their own rifles on either single shot or a three-round burst. Full auto is just a really fast way to waste ammo and hit nothing.

Myth : You can buy guns online

Ron Paul on "government security"

Originally posted on his House website, it is no longer available since his retirement.  Here is the whole thing:

The senseless and horrific killings last week in Newtown, Connecticut reminded us that a determined individual or group of individuals can cause great harm no matter what laws are in place. Connecticut already has restrictive gun laws relative to other states, including restrictions on fully automatic, so-called “assault” rifles and gun-free zones.

Predictably, the political left responded to the tragedy with emotional calls for increased gun control. This is understandable, but misguided. The impulse to have government “do something” to protect us in the wake national tragedies is reflexive and often well intentioned. Many Americans believe that if we simply pass the right laws, future horrors like the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting can be prevented. But this impulse ignores the self evident truth that criminals don't obey laws.

The political right, unfortunately, has fallen into the same trap in its calls for quick legislative solutions to gun violence. If only we put armed police or armed teachers in schools, we’re told, would-be school shooters will be dissuaded or stopped.

More control, with added confiscatory goodness!

This time around, they'll be coming to take your guns - whether you like it or not.  From :

If you’re going to advocate gun controls, it helps to know what you’re talking about: . Layers of editorial oversight.
