If you want to exercise your constitutional rights in the Northern Mariana Islands, you’d better be willing to fork up $1,000. The U.S. territory just decided to implement a handgun tax on any gun purchased on the islands, no matter what size or caliber.
According to the Marianas Variety, the bill was passed after the island’s gun ban was struck down last month. The bill also included language that said guns should only be used for self-defense.
“An individual is allowed to use a firearm or deadly force in self-defense if: the individual is protecting him- or herself and the use of the firearm or deadly force would prevent the immediate use of force by an aggressor,” the bill reads.
“Provided further that this use is based upon the reasonable belief that the aggressor is about to inflict an intentional contact that would or could be reasonably thought to result in serious bodily harm or death and the use of force by the aggressor can safely be prevented only by the immediate use of a deadly force.”
Apparently, nobody seemed to notice that a $1,000 tax is roughly equivalent to a ban on a constitutional right, much like the poll taxes in the South. Those were struck down, too — although, given Obama’s assault on the Second Amendment, we’ll see if the courts even recognize constitutional rights anymore….
The Northern Mariana Islands, which are roughly halfway between Hawaii and China in the Pacific Ocean, only have a little over 50,000 people on them. However, those people are Americans, and they have the right to bear arms.
Until this ban is lifted, patriotic Americans shouldn’t spend any money in the Northern Mariana Islands. If lawmakers there want to block our Constitution, they don’t want our money.
Anti-Hillary Clinton protestors don’t show disrespect to the American flag!
Anti-Berny Sanders protestors don’t show disrespect to the American flag!
ONLY ANTI-TRUMP PROTESTORS SHOWS SUCH DISRESPECT FOR THE AMERICAN FLAG!!!!!
Guys, this make it ALL clear!
The American “human trash” are against Trump.
They hate Trump, They hate America, They hate all the things we respect and love.
VOTE FOR TRUMP!!!!
Israelis’ crowd control method SKUNK spray!
Leave it to the Israelis to come up with an ingenious crowd control method!
For those who want less violent means used in handling protests, this seems to be the perfect fit.
This is a riot control weapon that really works.
Non-toxic, non-lethal, but very effective.
The Palestinians want it banned because it makes them feel degraded.
I wonder how long the aroma lasts on a demonstrator.
Looks like these guys may be eating outside for a while rather than around the family dinner table. Great stuff. The Israeli biomedical engineers have done it again video is about 2 minutes long.
Warren Buffett, “I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971…before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the land…all because of public pressure.
This is one idea that really should be passed around.
*Congressional Reform Act *
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.
2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term’s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Maybe it is time.
THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!!!!! If you agree with the above, pass it on.
Obama Is FURIOUS After Judge Jeanine Calls Obama A Terrorist On Live TV
Judge Jeanine Pirro commented that the Obama administration and Islamic radicals might as well be on the same side, because it is clear our ‘leader’ is not going to do anything to prevent these acts in the future.
~Wow, this was bold.
