Merriam-Webster definition of “radical” – “of or relating to the origin : fundamental; marked by a considerable departure from the usual or traditional : extreme; tending or disposed to make extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions; of, relating to, or constituting a political group associated with views, practices, and policies of extreme change; advocating extreme measures to retain or restore a political state of affairs.”
It is on the premise that National Open Carry is the constitutional norm, the fundamental right, even though it may not be the social norm nor the legal norm that I say that the NRA is a radical organization. Radicalism depends on where you place the norm. Under the Constitution of the United States National Open Carry is the norm NOT the NRA’s National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry!
In 2002 I requested help from the NRA with my Second Amendment case for Seamen’s rights, (1) for the right to arms aboard ship at sea to defend against pirates; and (2) for the right to openly keep and bear arms in intrastate, itnerstate, nautical, and maritime travel. The NRA letter you see above was their answer!
It is my contention that the NRA does not want anyone to win a Second Amendment case for National Open Carry because it would threaten the NRA’s financial standing.
The Stat Counter to this blog logged visits by the NRA on September 1, 2009 visiting “The NRA is Finally Taking Notice by Visiting This Blog” and again on September 10, 2009 “The NRA is an Organization of Radicals with their National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry,” just 1 day after I uploaded that post.
I will be filing an Admiralty/Maritime lawsuit against the U.S. Government (U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Obama, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States) in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for seamen’s rights under the Second Amendment. Will the NRA offer to help me? Or will they just sit on their ass relying on Game Theory and let the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia dismiss my case? I have been fighting for seamen’s rights under the Second Amendment for seven years now without the help of the NRA or any other Second Amendment advocacy group. Who will help me now?
