All Gun Laws Passed Since 1902 are Invalid and Illegal

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The so-called “Wars on Drugs and Terror” notwithstanding, the “Efficiency Of Militia Bill H.R. 11654M” June 28, 1902 Invalidates All So-Called Gun-Control Laws ‘Passed’ Since that Date.

This shot will  hopefully be heard around the world.
Everyone who is even partially aware of what is going on around them is aware that if only the “Bad Guys” have guns, you and I are F*cked if we are confronted by them.

   The new “Only Legal to Run” (you can shoot them in the back) Bill only serves to confirm my absolute conviction that this, and other governments around the world are disarming their citizens for the simple reason that when they say “ENOUGH!” they will mean it… Tom Dennen

H.R. 11654M also divides the militia into three distinct and separate entities.

  The three classes H.R. 11654 provides for are the organized militia, henceforth known as the National Guard of the State, Territory and Di strict of Columbia ;the unorganized militia; and the regular army.

The militia encompasses every able-bodied male between the ages of 18 and 45. All members of the unorganized militia have the absolute personal right and 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms of any type, and as many as they can afford to buy.

The Dick Act of 1902 cannot be repealed; to do so would violate bills of attainder and ex post facto laws which would be yet another gross violation of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The President of the United States has zero authority without violating the Constitution to call the National Guard to serve outside of their State borders.

The National Guard Militia can only be required by the National Government for limited purposes specified in the Constitution (to uphold the laws of the Union ; to suppress insurrection and repel invasion). These are the only purposes for which the Federal Government can call upon the National Guard.
But also listen to some real American Patriots, the men on the side of We, The People…

  Rep. Kucinich (D-Ohio)  Questions The ‘Patriot Act’ 2-25-2002

How Can We Justify This?
Let us pray that our nation will remember that the unfolding of the promise of democracy in our nation paralleled the striving for civil rights. That is why we must challenge the rationale of the Patriot Act. We must ask why should America put aside guarantees of constitutional justice? 

How can we justify in effect canceling the First Amendment and the right of free speech, the right to peaceably assemble? 

How can we justify in effect canceling the Fourth Amendment, probable cause, the prohibitions against unreasonable search and seizure? 

How can we justify in effect canceling the Fifth Amendment, nullifying due process, and allowing for indefinite incarceration without a trial? 

How can we justify in effect canceling the Sixth Amendment, the right to prompt and public trial? 

How can we justify in effect canceling the Eighth Amendment which protects against cruel and unusual punishment? 

We cannot justify widespread wiretaps and internet surveillance without judicial supervision, let alone with it. We cannot justify secret searches without a warrant. We cannot justify giving the Attorney general the ability to designate domestic terror groups. We cannot justify giving the FBI total access to any type of data which may exist in any system anywhere such as medical records and financial records. 

We cannot justify giving the CIA the ability to target people in this country for intelligence surveillance. We cannot justify a government which takes from the people our right to privacy and then assumes for its own operations a right to total secrecy. The Attorney General recently covered up a statue of Lady Justice showing her bosom as if to underscore there is no danger of justice exposing herself at this time, before this administration. 

Let us pray that our nation’s leaders will not be overcome with fear. Because today there is great fear in our great Capitol. And this must be understood before we can ask about the shortcomings of congress in the current environment. The great fear began when we had to evacuate the Capitol on September 11. It continued when we had to leave the Capitol again when a bomb scare occurred as members were pressing the CIA during a secret briefing. It continued when we abandoned Washington when anthrax, possibly from a government lab, arrived in the mail. It continued when the Attorney General declared a nationwide terror alert and then the Administration brought the destructive Patriot Bill to the floor of the House. It continued in the release of the Bin Laden tapes at the same time the President was announcing the withdrawal from the ABM treaty. It remains present in the cordoning off of the Capitol. It is present in the camouflaged armed national guardsmen who greet members of Congress each day we enter the Capitol campus. It is present in the labyrinth of concrete barriers through which we must pass each time we go to vote. The trappings of a state of siege trap us in a state of fear, ill equipped to deal with the Patriot Games, the Mind Games, the War Games of an unelected President and his unelected Vice President. 

Let us pray that our country will stop this war. “To promote the common defense” is one of the formational principles of America. Our Congress gave the President the ability to respond to the tragedy of September the Eleventh. We licensed a response to those who helped bring the terror of September the Eleventh. But we the people and our elected representatives must reserve the right to measure the response, to proportion the response, to challenge the response, and to correct the response. 

♠ Because we did not authorize the invasion of Iraq. 

♠ We did not authorize the invasion of Iran. 

♠ We did not authorize the invasion of North Korea. 

♠ We did not authorize the bombing of civilians in Afghanistan. 

♠ We did not authorize permanent detainees in Guantanamo Bay. 

♠ We did not authorize the withdrawal from the Geneva Convention. 

♠ We did not authorize military tribunals suspending due process and habeas corpus. 

♠ We did not authorize assassination squads. 

♠ We did not authorize the resurrection of COINTELPRO. 

♠ We did not authorize the repeal of the Bill of Rights. 

♠ We did not authorize the revocation of the constitution. 

♠ We did not authorize national identity cards. 

♠ We did not authorize the eye of Big Brother to peer from cameras throughout our cities. 

♠ We did not authorize an eye for an eye. 

♠ Nor did we ask that the blood of innocent people, who perished on September 11, be avenged with the blood of innocent villagers in Afghanistan. 

♠ We did not authorize the administration to wage war anytime, anywhere, anyhow it pleases. 

♠ We did not authorize war without end. 

♠ We did not authorize a permanent war economy. 

Yet we are upon the threshold of a permanent war economy. The President has requested a $45.6 billion increase in military spending. All defense-related programs will cost close to $400 billion. Consider that the Department of Defense has never passed an independent audit. Consider that the Inspector General has notified Congress that the Pentagon cannot properly account for $1.2 trillion in transactions. Consider that in recent years the Dept. of Defense could not match $22 billion worth of expenditures to the items it purchased, wrote off, as lost, billions of dollars worth of in-transit inventory and stored nearly $30 billion worth of spare parts it did not need. 

Yet the defense budget grows with more money for weapons systems to fight a cold war which ended, weapon systems in search of new enemies to create new wars. This has nothing to do with fighting terror. This has everything to do with fueling a military industrial machine with the treasure of our nation, risking the future of our nation, risking democracy itself with the militarization of thought which follows the militarization of the budget.

      Rep. Kucinich failed only to mention HR6166.
      Those who have not read it may want to review what a global inquisition looks like, then turn on the evening news.

      Dear Tom,

      I am afraid you are very much mistaken in some of your assertions.
      First, you are right that every gun control (restriction) passed by the federal government since 1902 is unconstitutional and therefore null and void. But, this is not a result of the 1902/03 Dick Act but rather Article VI clause 2 of the Constitution.

      The federal government began passing such unconstitutional restrictive gun laws in 1927. A brief time line of some of this legislation is as follows:

      1. 1927 federal Mailing of Firearms Act, 18 U.S.C.A. § 1715 (first federal gun control law)
      2. 00/00/1934 National Firearms Act of 1934
      3. 06/30/1938 Federal Firearms Act of 1938
      4. 00/00/1968 federal Gun Control Act of 1968,
      5. 05/19/1986 Firearms Owners’ Protection Act (FOPA)
      6. 00/00/1993 Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, Pub. L. No. 103-159, 107 Stat. 1536

      Second, the Dick law was the beginning of the process to do away with the Militia of the several States and put in place an Article I federal Army which is largely maintained by the states. The Dick Act did indeed change the name of the militia to “National Guard” but subsequent amendments actually changed the NG into an Article I federal Army. (Pretty darn sl9ick wouldn’t you say!)

      The National Guard today is not a state Militia but in fact an Article I federal Army.
      Third, the Dick Act may be repealed (just as any federal law may be repealed) and in fact has been substantially modified several times since its passage.

      Four, the President can call the National Guard to serve outside the country and has done so many times including in Vietnam and all the Gulf wars. In fact beginning in the 960s the federal government started calling up the NG and sent them to Columbia to train before going to Vietnam. You will note the Militia is to be trained by the states per the Constitution. (Art. I Sec 8 Cl. 14)

      The feds can constitutionally do this is because the NG is an adjunct of the regular Armey and in fact has taken a dual oath, one to their state, and one to the federal government.
      The federal government got the states to go along with this by giving them money and because so many of our fellow citizens are constitutionally ignorant. It started funding the NG and not funding the Militia of the several States.

      The states are in violation of their duty under the principle of Allegiance and Protection to maintain a militia and also in violation of the Constitution which requires the states to maintain their militias so they can be called up by the feds under limited circumstance, as you noted.
      This is the sad state of affairs as of this time.

      There is a national organization which is working to re-establish the militias of the several states and restore the first clause of the Second Amendment: Revitalizing the Second Amendment (RT2A). You can find it at Please check it out and tell your friends.

      For the sake of Liberty,

      Richard D. Fry
      General Counsel
