    RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS our gov. has taken away post 9/11

    RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS WE HAVE NEEDLESSLY
    LOST IN THE NAME OF NATIONAL SECURITY


    Through the enactment of the USA PATRIOT Act and subsequent
    executive directives and regulations, essential rights and freedoms
    that were once guaranteed to all individuals have been substantially
    degraded. Many Americans still do not realize the significance of
    what we have lost. The resulting expansion of government powers,
    and the erosion
    of 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 14th Amendment
    rights and freedoms have transformed the United States.

    1st AMENDMENT FREEDOM OF SPEECH

    • The Patriot Act broadly expands the official definition of
    terrorism, so that many domestic groups that engage in
    nonviolent civil disobedience could very well find themselves
    labeled as terrorists.

    • The Government may now prosecute librarians or keepers
    of any other records if they reveal that the government
    requested information on their clients or members in the
    course of an investigation. It has become a crime for these
    individuals to try to safeguard your privacy or to tell you
    that you are under investigation.

    1st AMENDMENT FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION

    • Government agents may now monitor the First Amendmentprotected activities of religious and political institutions, and
    then infiltrate these groups with no suspicion of criminal
    activity. This is a return to domestic spying on law-abiding
    religious and political groups.

    • You may now be the subject of a government investigation
    simply because of the political, activist, or advocacy
    groups you are involved in, or the statements you make
    within these groups.

    1st AMENDMENT RIGHT TO ACCESS
    GOVERNMENT INFORMATION

    • A U.S. Department of Justice directive actively encourages
    federal, state, and local officials to resist and/or limit access
    to government records through Freedom of Information Act
    (FOIA) requests.

    • The Government has conducted immigration hearings in
    secret behind closed doors. Such proceedings were once
    open to the public. Hundreds, if not thousands, of immigrants
    have already been deported in secret.



    4th AMENDMENT FREEDOM FROM UNREASONABLE
    SEARCHES &SEIZURES


    • Law Enforcement authorities may now conduct secret searches and wiretaps in your home or office
    without showing “probable cause.” They need only to claim that intelligence gathering is “a significant
    purpose” of their intrusion, even when the primary goal is ordinary law enforcement. They may also
    monitor where and to whom you send and receive e-mail, or where you go on the Internet, recording
    every e-mail address and website you have been in contact with.

    • Law Enforcement may now demand any personal records held by any source including your doctor,
    employer, accountant, or library. All they have to do is claim that it is related to an investigation into
    “terrorism.” The record keepers may not reveal that your records were provided to the government.

    • Judicial oversight of secret searches has been effectively minimized. The Patriot Act directs judges to
    consent to secret searches based only on the Government’s assertion that a “significant” purpose of
    an investigation is gathering information related to “terrorism,” as the government defines it.

    5th AMENDMENT RIGHT TO DUE PROCESS & FREEDOM FROM BEING
    HELD WITHOUT CHARGE


    • Americans can now be jailed without a formal charge & without the right to confront the witnesses or
    evidence against them. American citizens are now being held in military jails without charge and without a clear path of appeal for their indefinite confinement.

    • Hundreds of Arab, Muslim and South Asian men were rounded up in the Ashcroft raids following
    September 11, and held for weeks without charges until all were cleared of terrorism charges


    6th AMENDMENT RIGHT TO LEGAL REPRESENTATION

    • Hundreds of U.S. residents have been detained for months at a time, and denied access to the advice
    and advocacy of an attorney. The Government may now monitor conversations between attorneys &
    clients in federal jails.

    • The Bush Administration filed papers in court that arguing that an American citizen held in a military
    jail without charge should be denied access to legal counsel because such access would interfere with
    the process of his interrogation.


    6th AMENDMENT RIGHT TO A SPEEDY AND PUBLIC TRIAL

    • The U.S. Government may now jail its residents and citizens indefinitely without charge & without a public trial.


    8th AMENDMENT FREEDOM FROM CRUEL AND UNUSUAL PUNISHMENTS

    • The U.S. Government has taken into custody individuals they identify as “material witnesses,” transported them across the country, and held them for months in solitary confinement without charge or
    contact with their family.

    • According to the Justice Department’s own Inspector General, immigrant men rounded up in the
    Ashcroft raids following September 11 and held in the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn, NY
    were subjected to a pattern of “physical and verbal abuse.”

    14th AMENDMENT RIGHT TO EQUAL PROTECTION


    • Over 82,000 men from Arab, Muslim and South Asian countries registered with the Government
    under the Special Registration program. Over 13,000 are now in deportation proceedings. None
    have been charged with terrorism.

    It's sad to see these changes. The laws in this country are out of control.

    Legislation and law does not make this country better, freedom makes this or any other country great.

    Anyone backing any politician with a D or R next to their name is likely doing it wrong. If you think that Republicans are the party of Freedom you are sadly mistaken.

    Your rights has been slowly eroding since Lincoln

    Suspension of habeas corpus, jailing journalists, burning down whole cities that already surrendered

    Right now the your rights and freedoms are on a slippery slide with no end in sight. People are desensitized to it. When they wake up, things will change.

    It will only get worse over the next several years. Maybe decades. Eventually there will be an uprising demanding civil liberties be restored to the 20th century levels.

    The next Governmental step will be removing weapons from all US citizens..

    On April 19th 2013 Martial Law was introduced on American soil......

    When the Government removes the 2nd amendment from law,(which they will ),They will then use martial law in order to remove the weapons from ALL American civilians..You will peacefully hand in your weapons or have them taken from you in any means necessary and yes there will be plenty of bloodshed but you will give up your weapons,this is a certainty..

    All the concrete jungles in the US, known as gangland inner city ghettos, (little pharma), will be terminated...

    Just a couple of months ago 90+% of you laughed at me when I told you America was becoming a Police State....

    In only a few short months later it is here,"Oh my".......

    Am I surprised?

    Not in the slightest.........

    They don't have enough money, and nobody has enough political will or clout to make sweeping reformations to the 2nd Amendment to the point they would "come for our guns". Impossible to enforce if it is not being embraced at the state level.

    exactly. but it could be a law in say 5 years where its a felony to own a gun unless you have a special reason. and if you are caught with a gun its a 5 year sentence no question asked

    Oh man you are missing out, I grew up with guns, hunting target shooting and all of that...people that have never shot a gun in their life just dont know...and since they dont care, they have no problem with taking away the rights of others...its really the ignorant that want more gun laws...most people that own guns are safe law abiding citizens...

    I've shot a gun before, spent the last year down in SC. I really feel that they should just let it go, there's just so many people who aren't in that situation that bitch about it just to bitch about something...

    yeah there a witch hunt going on right now with regards to firearms, the ironic part is that gun and ammo manufacturers cant make products fast enough to keep up with demand..Ive been waiting on a revolver for a couple months now, im sure gun companies have had record sales in the last year... in fact, they seem do be doing so well that this whole gun hunt seems fishy...all it did was make everyone go out and buy up all of the guns thinking they would be outlawed soon
