January 5, 2013The introduction in Congress this week of anti-gun owner bills may very likely be met with deep and harsh opposition by America’s millions of law-abiding gun owners and millions more who believe in the U.S. Constitution, an Inside-the-Beltway civil rights expert said on Friday.“The anti-gun hysteria and other crapola coming out of Washington could lead to massive civil disobedience throughout the United States,” said John M. Snyder, a gun-rights lobbyist and former editor with the National Rifle Association.Synder noted that, President Barack Obama, Sens. Dianne Feinstein D-Calif. and Chuck Schumer D-N.Y., Reps. Carolyn McCarthy D-N.Y., Diana DeGette D-Colo. and other “political hacks are conspiring to take away Americans’ gun rights.”
To reduce the possibility of duplication of effort both within the TTCP and with other ‘standardization’ organizations, TTCP encourages liaison at all levels. Each Group is required to liaise with the other TTCP Groups and outside agencies that have similar areas of interest. The Washington Deputies each have responsibilities for direct liaison with sister standardization groups at the management level. Liaison is maintained with the organisations listed below, at a thrice yearly meeting held in Washington DC.
The greatest benefits for all members of TTCP are achievable when cooperative activities involve all nations. Wherever practicable, groups give higher priority to conducting collaborative activities than they give to the exchange of information. TTCP recognizes that information exchange is necessary, but the existence of a Group or any of its dependent Technical Panels (TPs) and Action Groups (AGs) based solely on information exchange, requires the approval of the Principals.
What the Framers said about our Second AmendmentRights to Keep and Bear Arms“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.”— George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788“Whereas civil-rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as military forces, which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.”– Tench Coxe, in Remarks on the First Part of the Amendments to the Federal Constitution“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”– Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no recourse left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual State. In a single State, if the persons entrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.– Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28
