From a constitutional lawyer: Re-Posted: Current Federal and State law:

You do NOT have to stay home.
You do NOT have to close your business.
You are NOT restricted in your travels.
You are NOT banned from religious assembly.
These are NOT laws, as a law must be passed by your state legislature. And, of course, this has not happened in any of our 50 states.
These following orders are UNLAWFUL “orders”:
Stay at home,
Close your business,
Don’t go to church,
Practice social distancing,
Wear a mask,
No interstate travel etc etc.

These are NOT laws that can carry any kind of criminal penalty for violation. They are at best ONLY guidelines for “suggestion”. These “orders” carry NO legitimate force of law with which to back them up.

NO governor nor mayor may craft a law and assign a punishment for its non-compliance. They can’t. And, even if one of these tyrants tries to do so, such orders or actions would then be profoundly unconstitutional and a solid basis for compensation to “anyone affected” by them.

The Free Exercise Clause of the First 1st Amendment firmly establishes freedom of religion as a fundamental liberty, and the Due Process Clause of the Fifth 5th Amendment firmly establishes your right to purchase a lawful product in interstate commerce from a willing seller as “fundamental”.

Fundamental liberties are in the highest category of liberty, akin to freedom of conscience and speech and press and privacy and travel.

Right to Congregate/Assemble
Per the First 1ST Amendment to the United States Constitution:
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Right to Travel:
DESPITE ACTIONS OF POLICE AND LOCAL COURTS, HIGHER COURTS HAVE RULED THAT AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE A RIGHT TO TRAVEL!!!
Per our 14TH Amendment to the United States Constitution (abridged):
“The right of a citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon in the ordinary course of life and business is a common right which he has under his right to enjoy life and liberty, to acquire and possess property, and to pursue happiness and safety. It includes the right in so doing to use the ordinary and usual conveyances of the day.”

Stopping a tyrannical overthrow of the United States AND the WORLD, the stripping of our Liberties & Freedoms BEGINS with YOU. Do your part and STAND UP for yourSELF before you no longer have a self to stand up for!!!

These are the facts.. Stop letting tyrants lie to you. Call them what they really are = Tyrants.
Feel free to copy and share!

Mark’s Note:
Those who would institute or ‘enforce’ these dictates have forsaken their sworn oaths to uphold the Constitution, and are, in fact, the “enemies within”.

Did China accidentally lose control of a virus weapon before they had an antidote for themselves and before they could strategically launch it against the United States or other countries? Maybe it was strategically launched? Let’s hope it was not intentional, but information points to the fact Chinese leaders Knew for six days about it before they said anything, allowing air travel from China to go around the world in those six days……

Either way, now the damage has been done, and continues.

There needs to be real repercussions, financial, or otherwise, against Communist China when this subsides.
They are/have destroyed lives and economy’s around the world and need to be severely punished. They withheld information on this ‘outbreak’ knowingly, trying to put the Jennie back into the bottle maybe, or, again, was this intentional?

China, along with Russia and Iran, (now there is three of a kind that would beat a full house…) have unapologetically launched a propaganda campaign insinuating that the United States unleashed this Chinese virus…I hope the world knows better and puts the blame squarely on Communist China where it belongs!

The age old argument about the size of the handgun ammo you think you need to stop a threat, I see this bouncing around all over the internet…….

I could drop you with a .22 and wound you with a .45, its about shot placement. Would I rather carry a larger round ? Yes. But people get all hung up on the size of the round when in the end it boils down to placement and skill under stress, no small consideration.

And the tool at hand in the time of need, is the tool you need indeed. Amen.

I was in the FaceBook censorship, anti First Amendment jail for the last 7 days for mentioning a firearm on a facebook page where they talk about firearms, go figure,….so that makes FaceBook anti Second Amendment as well…

The good news that is now in the works, and coming down the road, is that FaceBook, Twitter, and Google have a huge lawsuit pending that just may put some real people in a real jailcell over their un-American, pro communist Chinese censorship behavior.

Prager University is challenging all three of these censorship happy entities in court. The reason some of the bigshots could end up in jail is because they have all lied under oath to Congress about not committing censorship, First Amendment violations, and it is on record and very easy to prove.

A Public Forum, (as all three claim to be) can not be held accountable for content in that forum. So, there is no reason for them to be concerned about content. They are illegally using censorship on these Public Forums. A Publisher on the other hand, can control content on their sites, but here is the rub, you cannot consider yourself both a Public Forum AND a Publisher at the same time in the Same venue, as Facebook, Twitter, and Google are all trying to do in censoring, (controlling) content.

What is at stake is nothing less than OUR First Amendment freedoms being controlled on these Public Forums by people who have their own agendas to stifle us. It is about, ALL ABOUT, Control. Let us give Prager University kudos for taking on these three giant manipulators, that badly need reigning in!

I believe that Communist China accidentally lost control of their virus weapon before they had an antidote for themselves and before they could strategically launch it against the United States.

There needs to be real repercussions, financial or otherwise against Communist China when this subsides.

They are destroying lives and economy’s around the world and need to be severely punished. They withheld this manufactured ‘outbreak’ knowingly for at least two months or more trying to put the Jennie back into the bottle.

Communist China, out of necessity for worldwide stability, has to be held accountable by the World community for the chaos is has foolishly unleashed.

(A little Halloween fun)

A little information before the story, St. Froid lake in Maine is nine miles long, a mile wide in some places surrounded by good sized hills. The echo on a still night is really good, with almost a ten second delay. I knew this well, I had been going to this camp my grandfather built since I was very little.
Now the short spooky story.
One fall, 30 years ago I brought my son and his friend to the camp, they were 8 and 10, it is quite secluded with a four mile ride into the woods on gated dirt roads to the camp on the edge and at the end of St. Froid Lake, no electricity, no indoor plumbing, (outhouse) propane lights and candles only.
We were having a good time doing things around the camp and lake. The sun was fading into the west, the shadows were getting longer. I asked the boys if they wanted to toast some marshmallows after dinner, of course, what child would say no to that?
As the twilight became more pronounced and the stars started twinkling on the mirrored surface of a very still lake……..I asked the boys if they had ever heard the story of the Yeti that came to terrorize these parts years ago? Of course they hadn’t, I said the story was like this as told to me as a boy:
A long time ago, from out of the north, came a demon of the big woods, no one knew why it came, but when it did it rampaged through the region causing death and destruction everywhere, camps were torn apart, people went missing never to be seen again, terror reigned supreme though the lake campgrounds!! No one who saw this demon lived to tell the tale, only the bloody claw marks on ripped apart log cabins and shredded clothing strewn about and huge footprints in the dirt bore witness to the what had savagely passed through the region….
The boys listened intently. That was many years ago I said, before my grandfather was born, no one knew why it came, and no one knew why it departed, some say it wanted revenge on people for encroaching into its domain. I was told as a boy that it would let out an awful scream in the night, and people would know an evil terror was coming!!
I think I can give a scream kind of like it if you want me to try I said to the boys, they nervously agreed that I try. (they did not know of the delayed echo of the lake) So I let out a blood curdling scream then casually said that’s probably what the Yeti sounded like….
Suddenly, from the dark distant wooded hills, and seemingly from all around came a terrorizing reply!!! I said OH NO! ITS BACK!! IT ANSWERED ME!!! IT’S RETURNING!!
Well you can imagine the total dread that came over the boys, they wanted to pack up right then and there and go home NOW!!
It took me thirty minutes to calm them down and explain the echo, they were mad at me for a couple days before they started to think it was a good camp fire tale. Beware the returning Yeti bent on destruction o’ people of the North Maine Woods! Mark Shean, 10-27-19, author of GUN SENSE, on Amazon.

I was going to turn my gun into the government, but I decided to do a background check on the ones that want my guns, I discovered that they were all mentally unstable, so I guess I will keep it in sane hands after all, mine.

Until 2018, Massachusetts prohibited anyone who wasn’t a law enforcement officer from having a stun gun—any type of weapon or portable device that uses an electrical current to incapacitate someone temporarily. After that total ban was struck down as unconstitutional, the state changed its laws to include stun guns in the legal definition of a firearm. That means that Massachusetts residents who want stun guns must meet the state’s licensing and other requirements for gun possession and use.

Stun Guns: From Ban to Regulations

Massachusetts law treats all stun guns alike, whether they deliver an electric shock on direct contact or shoot darts attached to wires that carry an electrical charge (like Tasers, a brand name commonly used for this kind of pistol-type device). Previously, the state limited the use of stun guns to law enforcement officers. In 2018, however, the state’s highest court found that the absolute ban on civilian possession of these weapons, even in one’s own home, violated the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms. (Ramirez v. Commonwealth, 94 N.E.3d 809 (Sup. Jud. Ct. Mass 2018).)

Soon after that decision, Massachusetts amended its laws to get rid of the ban but to require regulations restricting the use of stun guns by anyone without a license. Civilians in the state may buy and carry a stun gun if they have license to carry firearms, as long as the electronic device is in a shape that resembles a gun. That explicitly rules out “covert” electronic weapons that resemble other objects like pens. (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 140, §§ 121, 131, 131J (2019).)

Restrictions on Stun Gun Licenses

As with other types of firearms, Massachusetts law prohibits certain people from getting licenses for stun guns, including those who:

  • are under 21
  • have been convicted of a felony, violent crime, weapons violation, or domestic violence
  • are subject to domestic violence protection order, or
  • are subject to an “extreme risk protection order ” (ERPO) which prohibits gun possession by those who pose a risk of injuring themselves or others with firearms.

Because of these restrictions, you’ll have to undergo a background check before getting a license for a stun gun. If you’re served with an ERPO, you must also surrender your license, along with any stun gun in your possession or control” (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 140, §§ 131, 131s (2019).)

Proper Storage of Stun Guns

Also in response to the Ramirez decision, Massachusetts added a law that requires storing any stun gun in a locked container that can only be opened by the owner or someone else who’s legally authorized to use the weapon (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 140, § 131L (2019)).

No Stun Guns in Airports or Planes

It’s illegal to enter to or try to enter a secure area of an airport or plane cabin with a stun gun, even if you have a firearms license (Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 269, § 12F (2019)).
