Patriot Convention


This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.

This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.

That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.

If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.

It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.

We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.

The communist planks are all in place…

...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.

That one issue will have ramifications for decades.

Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

Vietnam Vet Barred From Owning a Gun Because of a Teenage Misdemeanor 45 Years Ago

 Jefferson Wayne Schrader Barred From Owning Or Selling a Gun Because of a Fight He Got Into in 68

A 19-year-old sailor stationed in Annapolis, Md., in 1968 was arrested for getting into a fight with an alleged member of a street gang.

Now, more than four decades later, the 64-year-old U.S. Navy veteran has been stripped of his right to own a gun.

Jefferson Wayne Schrader of Cleveland, Ga., has been fighting a losing battle in the courts since 2008 to get his name off the fed’s firearm ban list. In fact, just last month, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., upheld a lower-court ruling barring him from owning a firearm.

“It’s a depressing thing. A depressing thing,” he told TheBlaze in a phone interview, “to have the government treat you like that. It’s not, well, it’s not a good thing.”

The ban list is meant to prevent people of questionable standing, including illegal aliens, drug addicts, people dishonorably discharged from the U.S. military, and fugitives, from buying or selling guns.

And although Schrader — a certified expert with a handgun — served in Vietnam from Jan. 1, 1968, until being honorably discharged in September 1970, the U.S. government believes he is unfit to own a gun because of his teenage misdemeanor.

“Due to a conviction some forty years ago for common-law misdemeanor assault and battery for which he served no jail time, plaintiff Jefferson Wayne Schrader, now a sixty-four-year-old veteran, is, by virtue of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1), barred for life from ever possessing a firearm,” U.S. Circuit Judge David Tatel wrote in the court’s January opinion.

  1. The day is coming.... When this bull*hit is brought to an end. This long train of abuse against the law abiding citizens of this country, cannot be sustained by fed gov. The safety valve on this pressure cooker has been broken beyond repair...

    1. Indeed it is Sir and SHTF may have a whole new meaning.

  2. This comes from a court case US vs Sidney Coleman from about 10 - 13 years ago. A misdemeanor was manufactured into a felony so that a harsher sentence could be given to Sidney when the Maryland State Police found the case they started to apply it to everyone. I have a copy of the case thatm started this all.

    1. I have a friend who had a felony in 1960 and after so many years, he was "allowed" to have guns in this state, but in 1984 this was changed and he still can't own them legally. Unbelievable.

  3. You use to be able to petition to get your 2nd Amendment Rights back you can't now also if you get barred in one state from owning guns you are barred in all states. Looks like Governors need to get pardon's going again.

    1. At any rate, it is a Natural Right, so screw them.
