Title 18, U.S. Code 241 - Conspiracy Against Rights


Quote:
United States Code
TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
PART I - CRIMES
CHAPTER 13 - CIVIL RIGHTS

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

U.S. Code as of: 01/22/02
Section 241. Conspiracy against rights

If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same;
or
If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured -

They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.


OK, so tell me, aren't this anti gun organizations conspiring against OUR rights to have the firearms we are guaranteed access to via the Constitution? Why can't I get the latest "non-sporting" firearms made in Isreal or Europe? Why do I have to pay an exhorbitant amount of money for a fully automatic weapon because the current supply is all there is available? Why do I have to pay through the nose for a 12 round magazine because of pressure from these sorts of groups to have these laws passed? Why do I have to ask the government PERMISSION for every gun I buy from a dealer?

Does the word "infringed" mean something entirely different now than it did when the U.S. Constitution and the original Bill of Rights was penned into life as the law of this country?

From all indications I have seen, these and many other laws were passed from the instigation of a minority in order to try to restrict our rights to exercise fully the Second Amendment. Some have flatly stated that their goal is the total ban of all firearms in private ownership.

Does this not present clear and ample grounds to prosecute those individuals for violation of this code?

a direct assault (on election day)doesn't seem to always work for them.the anti-gun people may not have more numbers but they are more visible.most people wouldn't recognize a schumer or fienstien(shudder) if they sat on their head.all it takes is one baldwin or sarandon to sway the lay peoples minds.a lot of people see them & for some reason their words carry more weight than that of people who do know the issue.if enough people believe a lie then it becomes "the truth"or close enough that people may not care about the consequences.
alas,charleton heston could only carry the torch so far.who is charismatic enough,who has the morals,the depth of character to lead the blind into the light?
the average joe/latisha needs to know what rights are being taken away.bit by bit the constitution is being nibbled at in the name of "national security"or public safety.knee jerk reactions to problems only create more problems.
i don't have any solutions.the NRA-ILA suggets that we get organized.they try to warn us about what can/is happening.how many of us don't heed the warning?how many think that we are too busy,or that "they"will handle it?i think that we are part of the problem.we may know that our freedoms are taken away but for the most part,we don't do anything about it.
where to begin?

Yeah, Charlton Heston was a charasmatic figure, but I wish he hadn't come on to the scene as the death knell of Neal Knox in the NRA. I like the way Neal talks, but I think the old guard of the NRA are kind of set in their ways.

I guess we just need a spokesperson who can catch people's attention. Unfortunately, that probably only leaves movie stars as likely candidates, as few other figures would have the household name status needed to catch people's attention.

It always amuses me to see the anti-gun actors and actresses mouthing off about their stance, but I tend to wonder how many of them took their stand to heart and refused to star in a movie that had guns in it? Probably not many, I would bet. Oh, but that it different, I guess.

Still, my question remains: Are anti-gun groups participating in a conspiracy against our rights that are guaranteed by the US Constitution? As I have pointed out in this thread, that is against the law.
