Jeh Johnson Claims ‘Gun Ownership Is Part of Homeland Security’

Second Amendment Foundaton

Jeh Johnson recently claimed ‘gun ownership is part of Homeland Security.’ It is statements such as this that led to the recent gun control measures that have been recently voted down in the Senate and attempted to be brought before the House of Representatives. Fortunately, pro Second Amendment groups such the the NRA and Second Amendment Foundation are actively battling to defend our rights. Here is the Second Amendment Foundation’s response to Jeh Johnson.

The DHS censored parts of the public solicitation.
After the story broke, the DHS censored parts of the public solicitation.

Contrary to what Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Tuesday that gun control is a “critical element” of protecting the nation against terrorists, the Second Amendment Foundation today said the right to keep and bear arms is this country’s original homeland security, and he needs to remember that.

“The threat we face today from terrorism is exactly why the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “Every American has the right to self-defense, and for Johnson to contend that infringing on that right is the way to keep the country safe is simply preposterous.” Johnson was on CBS television, at which time he stated, “We have to face the fact that meaningful gun control has to be a part of homeland security.” In response, Gottlieb observed, “What we really need to do is maximize the ability of law-abiding citizens to exercise their right to bear arms. Nothing deters terrorists as well as good people fighting back. Gun-free zone designations certainly haven’t stopped the atrocities in Paris, San Bernardino and Orlando. Restrictive concealed carry laws that prevent honest citizens from having the tools they need for self-defense have turned people into victims.

“Jeh Johnson has this one completely backwards,” he continued. “Nobody wants terrorists or even common street criminals to have guns. But laws that penalize honest Americans, and that ban certain types of firearms, will not prevent bad people from committing mayhem.

Second Amendment Foundaton “The conversation should not be about firearms, but fanatics,” Gottlieb stated. “But Johnson’s boss, Barack Obama, can’t even bring himself to acknowledge who and what the enemy is, without having a temper tantrum on live television.

“Guns, and gun owners, have protected our shores for more than two centuries,” he concluded. “Barack Obama and Jeh Johnson would have us believe that eviscerating the Second Amendment will somehow discourage terrorists from attacking us. That’s not just dishonest, it is delusional.”

  1. Better stockpile guns and ammo and get the waterproof tubes out and pick your hiding spot.

    They will now be coming for your guns, and once they have disarmed Americans, well… you know what happens next when haters win.

    Has anyone noticed the new “Gun Buyers” ads online in NYS? They claim to want to “help” poor NYers cope with “guns you may no longer want or need”.

    As part of their shady “sales pitch”, they claim to be FFLs. So what? Anybody can be one, if you have the money and do the work required.

    I never heard of these guys until Biden was projected to be the “winner”.

    So who are they? According to thier online “information”, they have a whole network of discerning collectors and gun lovers thst ONLY WANT TO BUY USED GUNS! Ha…give me a break!

    It gets even better…how does this (likely a Michael Bloomberg inspired/financed not so subtle gun buybck program…now “That it’s become so difficult to have a gun in NY..”we are going to help you” HA! gun control trick or ploy alert!

    And it gets even better… how does it work? Well, first you fill out a form online giving your name, adress, type of gun ,serial number,yada,yada.

    Once they know this, then they will send you a FREE shpping carton.Gee…(:@ )
    Then get this…you shipo them your gun! o, like,they can examine it and give you their estimate of its value. So they make you(almost certainly a low-ball) offer. If you accept…ZAP..title automatically then is trnsferred to them And you get a check! Wow…

    And just who is this network of gun lovers and collectors that they are buying these guns for…lets see…well, guess wo will be “collecting” your guns, if you let them, lads…Bloomberg and his rich gun-loving firends. Well, they’d love OUR guns if they can now help you NYers out) now that Andyfeels even more empowered…after all, the corret pecking order will be restablisehd…Biden(Obama, Clinton) and Kamala (ACS,et al).

    You are going to soon see an America that has been viciously politiciesd by a relentless campaign of 4 years of disinformation and constantb attacks on Trump…the Demonrats have spared no expense in organizing mobs and quasi race riots at the same time they are calling for (and getting) “defunding of Police.”

    Notice bow the “old guard” of Senior police Officials are taking their pensions now.

    I am sad to predict the emergence of two (2) Americas…a split the Dems seem to think to thier advantage.

    I think unconstitutional gun siezures and illegal FORCED “gun buybacks” will begin as soon as the Biden admin (or rather the Kamala/Pelosi/Chuck/Obama/Hillary/Mike Bloomber/George Soros et. al Administration.

    Do NOT sell or give up your guns. IGNORE new laws that say you can no longer sell your guns privately.
    Why NOT?

    I could yesterday, right? What changed, other than the leftish democrats siezing powr…if you believe that Joe Biden’Kamala won, nd by th numbers they are showing now…if you think gthis election isnt guys give up now, because you will be of no use the the Resistance Movement(s) that will surely come, as Americans do tend to fight tyrants…big and little.

    Just think about it…Andrew Cuomo has almost gotten away with using NY Taxpayers money to go after the NRA, as well as appoint a political hack as NY’s Attorney General, who then launched attacks on the NRA, even stooping to personal attacka on the Officers of the NRA.

    Guys, I hope that Biden will remember that he is still an American…although I guess he is “above the law’ now. The idea of using Executive Orders to disarm Americans strikes me as some of the reason we ended up dumping tea in Boston Harbor.

    Those boys learned how to make and hold onto their guns and would have understood why you need large-capacity magazines.

    Hope for the best…prepare for the worst. Red Dawn kind of scenario? Let’s hope they won’t go that far…A Cuban surprise?..after Castro won, remember what happened? Cubans do…

    Do NOT let your Freedom be taken from you…”The right to own weapons is the right to be free”(The Weapon Shops of Ishtar)…A.E.Von Vogt. In case you haven’t noticed, the NRA IS “The Weapon Shops of Ishtar”.
    Join them now and be part of the New Resistance that is sure to come, READ IT! (Weapon Shops of Ishtar) and take heart, brothers!

    1. @ snalrz barkly,

      He’s not. President Trump replaced Jeh Johnson with General John F. Kelly the same day he was sworn in to office. Also this article is a year old.

      Welcome back if you just awoke from a coma. There is much to get caught up on.

  2. Obama and Hillary want to take up all Firearms. A person with a Gun is a
    Citizen / A person without a Gun will be a Subject!

  3. “Homeland Security” has pretty much been a bad joke since its inception, but now it seems to be evolving into a danger to the people it was supposedly formed to protect. Germany had a similar organization in the 1930’s and 40’s, it was called the Nazi SS!

  4. It is time to impeach the government officials from senators and governors to the little man in the oval office they are committing acts of treason right under our very noses. They should be given the chair. Isn’t that what we did to the Rosenberg’s for their acts of treason. They were sworn in to protect the Constitution of the United States and they all are failing to keep their sacred words they are liars and not American’s.

  5. ‘Jeh Johnson recently claimed ‘gun ownership is part of Homeland Security.’
    He is 100% Correct. That’s the reason for the 2nd. Amendment.
    So why are the $**% anti-Americans trying to PREVENT Americans from owning guns? Well, actually I answered my own question.
    Obama said he wanted to “Change” (which is Libtard speak for Destroy) America (which he hates) and he and his minions are doing a great job of it.

  6. Our current government needs to go back and take U. S. history again, and understand why we were given the Second Amendment. It was for self-defense, hunting, and most importantly, to protect us should our government become oppressive, and the government in England was doing to the colonists. Read the Forefather quotes on everyone having the right to a firearm. <

  7. “Barack Obama and Jeh Johnson would have us believe that eviscerating the Second Amendment will somehow discourage terrorists from attacking us.” That’s not just dishonest, it’s retarded, but then again, leftist hacks like obama and johnson have a severe mental disorder! So what else would we expect from these mental midget marxists?

  8. He also stated on Brett Baer’s show on Fox that he will not allow ANYONE to besmirch his religion… Islam.

  9. Gun control regulations do not work these ideas that they are safe are so delusional. And they would try to put into out heads the delusion that gun laws make us safe. You have to look no farther than to our southern border neighbor Mexico which has very strict gun laws and only one gun store not per state but for the whole damn country. This would like having to go to Denver Colorado to buy a firearm no matter what state you lived in. You would have to fill out a ton of paper work shell out a wheel barrow full of pesos. And maybe walk out of the store with a firearm. You would have to buy a special permit if you wanted to take it outside of your home. And if you are a hunter you would have to purchase this special permit and carry it with you at all times. Now with all these gun safe laws and regulations why did they have 164,000 gun related deaths from 2001-2014? And the number is climbing steadily every day.

  10. Gun ownership isn’t “part of” homeland security, it “IS” homeland security. This republic will never be conventionally invaded by a malevolent armed force as long as this is true. We have though, in the past century been invaded from within by a domestic enemy that seeks to remove that safeguard to ensure their survival and tyrannical power. To avert this eventual possibility is the primary reason that the Founders included the Second Amendment in the Constitution (the supreme and ABSOLUTE law.

  11. People use guns to kill illegally, people use drugs illegally, and people driving cars kill. Seems to me we have a People caused Violent Crime problem. Laws do not stop people from committing crimes.
    When crimes occurred in the past we talked about fighting crime. Today the media doesn’t blame the criminal but blames the tool that he used. It’s not the person it’s the gun. Drug violence? It’s not the person it’s the drugs. Many times a violent bad guy with a gun has to be stopped by a brave good guy with a gun. We Americans are our own first responders. We Americans will defend ourselves and our Constitution against all enemies, both domestic and foreign. Are you prepared to defend yourself? When you are faced with a dangerous situation I ask this question; What are you prepared to do?

  12. Hello everyone and God bless, I’ve seen in the past years of my life many instances of persons that are not right in the mind should never ever be close to any type of weapon but what can be construed as a weapon I can take the leg of a chair break it off and there’s my weapon a knife a garden shovel I know you all see my point coming it’s been said before so I’ll stop short but when politicians use children and a horrible terrorist events to propagate themselves and thier anti American messages so they can falsely strip us of our GOD given rights to protect our country and family! the cost to implement the programs for the anti-gun Senate bills and appropriation bills would be enormous and fruitless and ohhhh yup UNCONSTITUTIONAL. … So to MRS?..Hillary Clinton this person has not morals or Ethics she is as her so call husband is a CROOK plan and simple!!!!!!

  13. Just another attempt of the Obama administration to circumvent the constitution. Some one needs to educate this man as to the oath he has taken to protect the constitution, not destroy it. We must rid ourselves of this type of thinking.

  14. “gun ownership is part of Homeland Security.” It is part of my personal Homeland Security and it is my part in securing the nation.
    “gun control is a “critical element” of protecting the nation against terrorists” The only control necessary is personal control and ability to double tap your target.

  15. In response to Johnson’s statements regarding private ownership of guns and the Second Amendment, I would like to point out just a couple of facts.
    1. Ownership of guns is legal under federal law and state law.
    2. Passing a law making ownership of guns will not affect those of us who already own guns. For your edification, I give you…
    3. The Constitution of the United States, Article 1, Section 9, Clause 3 says “No bill of attainder of ex post facto law shall be passed”

    For those of you who may not understand these terms, the follow are definitions from Miriam Webster Dictionary (online)
    “bill of attainder….. a legislative act that imposes punishment without a trial
    “ex post facto law”…… a civil or criminal law with retroactive effect; especially : a law that retroactively alters a defendant’s rights especially by criminalizing and imposing punishment for an act that was not criminal or punishable at the time it was committed, by increasing the severity of a crime from its level at the time the crime was committed, by increasing the punishment for a crime from the punishment imposed at the time the crime was committed, or by taking away from the protections (as evidentiary protection) afforded the defendant by the law as it existed when the act was committed

    Gentlepersons, I leave you with one thought: if you already own guns, hang onto them…’s later than you think.

  16. Terrorism is Defined as having everyone else bleed to further the cause and/or ideology of someone else !!!!

  17. Constitutionality is the least of the Fearmonger’s concerns. Disarmament of citizens, and the transformation of said citizens into subjects, is nothing less than a globalist proposal to unite the world into slavery.
    Democratic and Republic government is the birthright of this nation, founded on principles of self determination, not subjects of tyranny, cronyism, and corruption.
    Disarmament of the populace is a necessary step in imposition of dictatorships. Historical precedent proves that dissent is crushed, brutally usually, and the self-regulation of a trade alliance becomes an unelected and dictatorial supranational government.
    The Brexit may be confirmed by the British Parliament, or not. We have three candidates for president, an incompetent and corrupt lifelong politician (Democrats), a brash and offensive businessman (Republicans), and a Governor who reduced taxes and waste via Veto power alone and who professes alliance to the Constitution and the Amendments thereof(Libertarian).
    Of course, the Governor will be marginalized and disparaged when he is not ignored outright, and we will end up with either more of the same crap (lies, cronyism, corruption, and attempts to weaken and destroy US Sovereignty) from the White House that we’ve received for the past 8 years(likely in a more aggressive manner), or a total unknown who says protecting the US is his biggest priority and the usual requirements of Political Correctness do not apply… Which may end up as the Orwellian Dystopia we endure being magnified further outside the constitutional abuses we know today.

  18. Tell us, Jeh; what part of ‘Shall NOT Be Infringed’ do you NOT understand?!?!?

    Listen up:

    “To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm…is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.”
    –Arkansas Supreme Court Decision, ‘Wilson v. State’, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. – 1878

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
    –Cesare Beccaria (1735-1794), quoted in Jefferson’s “Commonplace Book,” 1774-1776

    “One of the ordinary modes, by which Tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms.”
    –SCOTUS Justice Joseph Story (on the bench 1811-1845)

    “[W]hen the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.”
    –George Mason (1725-1792), from Debates Virginia State Ratifying Convention – 1788

    “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.”
    –Noah Webster, 1888, ‘An Examination into…the Federal Constitution’ 1787

    “Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American…the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”
    –Tench Coxe (1755-1824), Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, February 20, 1788

    “No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to congress a power to disarm the people.”
    –William Rawle (1759-1836), Rawle, A View of the Constitution, p. 125-6, 1829

    “For among other evils caused by being disarmed, it renders you contemptible; which is one of those disgraceful things which a prince must guard against.”
    – Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527), ‘The Prince’

    “A government that intended to protect the liberty of the people would not disarm them. A government planning the opposite most certainly and logically would disarm them. And so it has been in this century. Check out the history of Germany, the Soviet Union, Cuba, China and Cambodia.”
    –Charlie Reese

    “The tragic history of civilian disarmament cries a warning against any systematic attempts to render innocent citizens ill-equipped to defend themselves from tyrant terrorists, despots or oppressive majorities.”
    –Daniel L. Schmutter, Esq.

    “I am one who believes that as a first step, the United States should move expeditiously to disarm the civilian population, other than police and security officers, of all handguns, pistols, and revolvers… No one should have the right to anonymous ownership or use of a gun.”
    –Professor Norval Morris, Dean of the University of Chicago School of Law and Director of the United Nations Institute for the Prevention of Crime; Testimony to Congress on his appointment as Director of Law Enforcement Assistance Administration under President Jimmy Carter

    “I do not believe in people owning guns. Guns should be owned only by the police and military. I am going to do everything I can to disarm this state.”
    –Michael Dukakis, then-Governor of Massachusetts

    And, Jeh, Barack, Diane, Charlie, Michael, et al., pay CLOSE attention here:

    “When you disarm your subjects you offend them by showing that either from cowardliness or lack of faith, you distrust them; and either conclusion will induce them to hate you.”
    – Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527), ‘The Prince’

  19. ‘gun ownership is part of Homeland Security.’ in the sense that Admiral Yamamoto said that “you can’t invade the United States because there is a gun behind every blade of grass.”

  20. G-Man, you said it! Especially that last paragraph. I hope that all of those “diehard conservatives” and “never Trump” folks understand that by not voting at all or for Trump, or voting for a 3rd party candidate is all the same as voting for HRC, and will result in her becoming President. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Think about the Supreme Court nominees the next President is going to make (potentially). That alone can change the country dramatically, and in the wrong direction if HRC is President. VOTE TRUMP!

  21. I work for DHS and I can’t carry my side arm. I’m a trained military veteran and work in LE, but since I’m not an 1811 I can not carry or bring my sidearm on government property. Essentially I’m only afforded my 2nd admendment rights on the weekends. I hope I don’t need it for self defensive during the work week when I’m out and about in town.

  22. Jeh Johnson is just one more elitist hypocrite crony of BO. HE carries a gun everyday, everywhere. But he doesnt want you or I to do it. I guess he slept through his history classes that proved that guns ARE the original Homeland Security. Guns won and tamed the Wild West. The Japanese wouldnt attack the US during WWII because they feared a “gun behind every bush.” Why have we had as few terrorist attacks as we have up to now? Because our enemies know that in addition to the massive firepower wielded by our military, the CITIZENS of this country are also armed! Johnson is just another of OB’s Kool-Aid drinkers that thinks criminals will abide by more gun-control laws. The word ILLEGAL is anathema to these so-called educated azzoles, except when it applies to people who try to live by and follow the law.

  23. Suffice it to say I agree. We may have to fight before the elections if there are elections because I am not convinced he is going out quietly and will find a reason to declare martial law.

  24. “Barack Obama, can’t even bring himself to acknowledge who and what the enemy is”

    Barack Obama and his progressive socialist party not only acknowledge who the enemy is, They work relentlessly against them.
    Those who hold a strong belief in the US Constitution and Bill of Rights are the enemy.
    Those not going along with the “CHANGE” in America, will have to be controlled by law enforcement.
    I hear “patriots” speak of the next revolution – I tell them the overthrow of our country started 8 years ago – and this next election will determine if we win – or if we will have to fight not to lose!

    1. Obama knows who the ememy us, he is Muslim and Americans are his enemy. Whatever his public response is there is a very private “Gotcha”.

  25. I am an aarp member and a NRA member so I am well versed in the various issues. MY stance is simple. You come into my home uninvited you get shot regardless who you are, Criminal, Terrorist or Government Agent. No reason for anyone to break into a law abiding citizens home as happens over 1000 times a year in this Country because of law enforcement errors. The situations usually result in death, injury, destruction and loss of property.

  26. “Jeh Johnson recently claimed ‘gun ownership is part of Homeland Security.’”

    I agree with that statement, just not with the same emphasis. I say that Homeland Security is more effective with armed citizens. The more armed citizens there are, the safer the nation is.

  27. My sentiments exactly. Anyone comes into my home for any reason uninvited gets shot. Just that simple. I live in Colorado where we have make my day laws and I will treat anyone who breaks into my home as a threat to me and my family. Law enforcement breaks into the wrong homes over 1000 times per year and the incidents are generally horrendous resulting in deaths and injuries to innocent people, loss of property, and long court battles to get your property back or restitution for the damage done.. I am a law abiding citizen with no criminal history whatsoever. So if anyone comes in uninvited they are in for a life or death battle. That should be the position of every law abiding firearm owner in this Country. Give me Liberty or Give You Death.

  28. Let them talk their crap. One of the most enjoyable moments of 2017 will be watching President Trump fire the likes of Jeh Johnson, Loretta Lynch and all the other bozos holding Obama appointments. Regardless whether Trump becomes elected, I derive a sense of pleasure knowing these Obama lapdogs squirm every time at the mere mention of Trump’s name.

    Even if Clinton winds up in office, these suck-ups still have no assurances of retention. They are well aware that Hillary is ruthless and been known to throw her own cohorts under the bus when it suits her needs. Hillary has very distinct prerequisite when it comes to selecting her inner-circle of corruption. And it has nothing to do with one’s experience for any particular position either.

    This was made evident during Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State when it was obvious all her position appointments (including ambassadors) were long-time friends or those needing to be rewarded for political favors.

    On second thought, Loretta Lynch more than likely will get to keep her job under a Clinton administration given that Hillary owes Lynch dearly for refusing to prosecute her under the Espionage Act.

    It is a tragedy for America that this has happened despite all the FBI’s hard work clearly proving Hillary’s intentional criminal activity. As much as Hillary would love to abuse her power and go after the FBI Director for this, thankfully a new president cannot remove an FBI Director without serious cause. It will be interesting though to see if Hillary tries.

    Hopefully she will never get a chance to make it that far, so vote Trump. Even if you don’t like him, it will rid us of the Johnsons and Lynches that have infiltrated our government.

  29. I believe the original intent of Founding Fathers, in regards to 2nd Amendment and wording of “keep and bear arms” was to not only to protect ones self and property from criminals, but to enable the citizens to stand up to a oppressive government, should one take power. I find it disturbing that Federal Agencies, other than Armed Forces now have more manpower and weapons than our countries Defense Forces. Does a Department of Homeland Security agent take a oath to Defend the Constitution against all enemies Foreign and Domestic like armed forces members?

    1. Obama swore twice to uphold the Constitution and look what that has gotten us. Not too late for impeachment.

  30. Cudos to the above comments. Just wanted to add another to the list of anti-gunners: Called The Hartford Insurance Company this morning to get a quote on a rider to insure my gun collection and was told that they only insure antigue guns with the firing pins removed. Told them that perhaps I should reconsider with whom I should get my Renters or Homeowners Insurance. My renters insurance is through the AARP/ The Hartford Insurance Group.

    1. AARP reflexively supports every statist, big gummint, anti-liberty program that comes along, including Obamacare and gun control. I suspect they’re behind the rider limitations, not The Hartford.

  31. America started when the Brits, who were oppressing us, decided to confiscate the patriots guns and ammo reserves at Concord Ma in 1776. The patriots knew they would be absolutely powerless if un-armed. The first armed resistance took place at Lexington MA to stop the Brits from taking their weapons and ammo. A rag tag bunch of farmers, shop owners, teachers, students etc. (normal people) said “No you don’t” and backed it up with ‘the shot heard round the world’.
    Are we there again??

  32. “Outlawing guns makes more outlaws.”

    And that is what they want. Turn you into an outlaw then demonize you. And NO I do not think you should give anything up to the feds or any other authority. In fact if I had any firearms to give up they would magically disappear should any confiscation scheme become law.

  33. My weapons are for personal protection from all threats foreign and domestic as my oath states. Therefore my weapons are necessary for homeland security.”Gun Control”. is contrary to the idea of homeland security.. Because it removes the possibility of a citizen protecting his home or country.

  34. Before Japan attacked Pearl Harbor the powerful leaders wanted to attack California instead of Pearl because the US`army was not mobilized yet. But Yamamato, who was educated in the US, convinced them not at attack the mainland. He told them that almost every citizen had a rifle and ‘there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass” to defend the US. They changed their mind because of this.
    Also during WW2 Germany wanted to “borrow” the gold Switzerland hand in their banks to finance the war. The German general was told no, that the gold was not Switzerland’s but it was the property of others.
    The German General got angry and said, ” What if I have a million man German army on your border in few days. The Swiss general said, If you do that we will have a million Swiss citizens on our border and they will all fire once and you will no longer have a million man army.
    It was NOT mountains that kept the Germans out of Switzerland, it was the fact that all it’s citizens were armed and trained in how to use their rifle.

    1. I like the one that has the German general saying to a Swiss general “We have twice the soldiers you can muster” to which the Swiss general said “then we will have to fire twice!”, obviously referring to the training and marksmanship of the Swiss peoples.

  35. Iv’e said the same thing for years. I have a perfectly clean record all my life and have always been a law abiding citizen. Outlawing guns will only make me a criminal because I will never give mine up for illegal confiscation and from that day on I will be a outlaw.
    Outlawing guns makes more outlaws.

  36. Obammunists like Jeh Johnson are obvious ideologues, but aren’t stupid people. They fully realize an armed citizenry only threatens their own treacherous statist designs, not “national security.” Comrade Rahm Emanuel’s dicta that “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste” lives on in this administration, which can’t leave office too soon.

  37. The Second Amendment is all the gun control we in America need.Our founding fathers saw the importance and the need to be armed and wisely wrote the Second Amendment into the Constitution. It is a damn shame that the snakes of terror and treason continue to show their head and give credence to the need for our Constitutions Second Amendment further proving how righteous and correct our founding fathers were. Adding more proof that our Founding Fathers were unwavering in their beliefs are the current acts of terrorism in the world today and more importantly is the fact that these terrorist attacks are happening on American soil. What is most disturbing is that Homeland security the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton have made banning firearms their personal agenda and have declared war on the American people. Another disturbing fact is that the leadership in America who is supposed to keep America safe from the terrorist in the world and the common criminals are actually opening our borders to the terrorist and arranging early parole go criminals in America. Does any of this make sense? I have owned guns my entire life and due to being a responsible gun owner I have never had a problem. I sincerely hope that the anti gun politicians and the TREASONOUS TRAITOR’S in Washington do not give me a reason to take pause. I too as are most others unwavering.

  38. Yeah….let’s all listen to Barack Obama and Jeh Johnson….two Globalist traitors who have been around for about ten minutes in the history of this country. Mr. Gottlieb is a 100 percent accurate. The 2nd Amendment was put in place so that We the People could protect not only ourselves, but the entire Nation against Tyrants like Obama and Johnson. The know they can’t take complete globalist countrol as long as the entirety of the citizens of this country are armed. Unfortunately for them, people in this country are waking up, and if they keep poking the Bear, it won’t turn out well….for them.
