Uh oh. PA wants medical marijuana users to “dispose” of their guns

Hot Air - Wed, 01/03/2018 - 14:21

It’s a new year and medical marijuana is finding its way into the Keystone State. That’s not particularly remarkable since it’s a trend which has taken root in plenty of states around the nation. But Pennsylvania gun owners are now facing the same conundrum threatening to plague their fellow Second Amendment enthusiasts in other states where either medical or recreational pot has been legalized.

Pennsylvania State Police officials are stirring up protest among Pennsylvania gun-owners who are also potential medical marijuana patients.

“It disturbs me greatly to see the Pennsylvania State Police put on their website references to federal law while ignoring the fact that it is legal under Pennsylvania law,” says Patrick Nightingale of Greenfield.

Nightingale is a gun owner, a criminal defense attorney, and a recent applicant for a medical marijuana card.

What disturbs him is a State Police statement on their website, citing federal law, telling medical marijuana card holders, “It is unlawful for you to keep possession of any firearms which you owned or had in your possession prior to obtaining a medical marijuana card, and you should consult an attorney about the best way to dispose of your firearms.”

Rather than waiting for some sort of pronouncement from either the Governor or the Justice Department in Washington, the state troopers have posted a warning to gun owners who are seeking medical marijuana cards. That seems like an unusual step, particularly since neither Governor Wolf nor the state’s Attorney General have weighed in on the question yet.

So here’s the first question to tackle. Are the state police going to be enforcing state law or federal law when the two are in direct conflict? It’s true that the cops aren’t supposed to ignore violations of the law whenever they see it, but usually, a federal violation either lines up with a matching state law or falls under an area where the state’s code is silent. As we’ve seen in other states already, this marijuana legalization question is something of a unique beast.

There’s also a common sense angle to this. It’s not illegal for adults to continue to own a firearm if they possess or drink alcohol, providing they’re not going out and engaging in drunken mayhem and violence as a result. Why would the state treat marijuana any differently if it’s been reclassified along the same lines as booze? Granted, that applies mostly to the states with recreational pot use, but we could apply the same question to prescription medicines. If your doctor prescribes some sort of opioid for you, you clearly shouldn’t be either driving your car or firing your weapons while under the influence. But simply having the drugs in your possession legally doesn’t strip you of your Second Amendment rights. If marijuana is now a “prescription drug” under Pennsylvania law, confiscating guns seems to be a bit of a stretch, doesn’t it?

While we probably don’t need to drop yet another hot potato in the Supreme Court’s lap right now, it seems that they’re going to have to chime in on this one sooner or later. The court has been reluctant to take a stand on Second Amendment rights since Heller, but this is a state vs federal conflict that’s crying out for a definitive resolution.

Antifa Website Posts Directions for Sabotaging ATMs After Anarchists ‘Wreck’ Nearly 20 in Portland

GatewayPundit - Wed, 01/03/2018 - 14:04

Antifa anarchists have decided that an excellent way to “smash the state” is to inconvenience their friends and neighbors by sabotaging ATM machines — in a city that voted 73.3% for Hillary Clinton and only 17% for Donald Trump.

via the anarchists at It’s Going Down

In a communique posted to the Antifa website It’s Going Down, an anonymous criminal admitted to using guerrilla tactics to “wreck” ATM machines in the ultra-blue city of Portland, Oregon — and encouraged readers in other cities to do the same.

“We are no longer willing to wait for the some great spark to cause the Revolution, nor can we afford to wait as our mental health depreciates with each new bit of bad news about our dying planet and all these warring nations fighting over blood and oil. Instead, we will turn every little act into an act of rebellion and refuse to submit to the State any longer,” the criminal wrote.

Finally, someone on the left admit that their side is suffering from severe mental health issues!

The anonymous contributor then claimed to have borrow the tactic from “comrades in Philly” and went out with a group of friends to inconvenience people with their vandalism.

“We attempted first to lodge rectangles of non-corrugated cardboard into the slots on the ATMs, but found that the machines wouldn’t accept our counterfeits. In a split second decision, we ransacked the closest big box grocery store for all the Visa gift cards we could stuff into our pockets. We cut off about a third of these, so as to make them that much harder to fish out of the machines, and processed to gallivant across Portland jamming every machine we came across. In total we managed to wreck almost 20 ATMs, although we shall have to see how long it takes the banks to repair them,” the anarchist wrote.

With a complete lack of regard for those who perhaps have to walk to those ATMs in the bitter cold, the contributor added that “this tactic could and should be implemented all winter long.” They also wrote that the sabotage “could even likely be performed in broad daylight without catching so much as a second look. In truth, humans are so programmed not to notice things anymore that even the cops that passed us by periodically didn’t so much as slow down or look over while passing.”

“While our actions will not make the State crumble tomorrow, they allow us a bit of sanity and self-confidence which has been stolen from us,” the author, rather hilariously, admitted at the end of their call for crime.
