Petition to NRA to Endorse and Lobby for the Michael's Law Amendment to 18 U.S.C. 926A

WHEREAS, the National Rifle Association ("NRA") has been attempting to effect "National Reciprocity" for gun permits for nearly a decade; and WHEREAS, the NRA has not, to date, been successful; and WHEREAS, even if such legislation were to successfully pass Congress and be signed into law by the president, we believe there is a good chance the law would be thrown out by the Supreme Court on 10th Amendment grounds, as using Federal power to coerce states that do not want to grant reciprocity into doing so violates "states' rights;" and WHEREAS, the Small Business in Transportation Coalition ("SBTC") has proposed an amendment to an existing Federal firearms-related statute (18 U.S.C. 926A; Interstate Transportation of Firearms) in furtherance of the U.S. Constitution's Commerce Clause, calling for the statute to be re-entitled: "Interstate Possession, Transportation and Carrying of Firearms;" and WHEREAS, this proposal is referred to as the "Michael's Law Amendment," in honor of an unarmed trucker named Michael Boeglin, who was shot and killed and burned in his truck on June 26, 2014 in Detroit; and  WHEREAS, Americans travelling interstate are routinely the victim of gun violence with no means to protect themselves if the states they go to do not grant reciprocity, including, but not limited to, truckers like Randy Tomblin, Jerry Matson and most recently, a trucker shot today, January 27, 2016; and WHEREAS, this proposed law would apply to all Americans and would not require any Federal registration whatsoever, but would merely reaffirm the Second Amendment insofar as traveling from state-to-state is concerned and would preempt the ability of the states to make laws that apply to interstate transportation of-- and travelling with-- firearms; WHEREAS, the text of this proposed law, in its entirety, is as follows: 18 U.S. Code 926A; (Renamed): Interstate possession, transportation and carrying of firearms... (1) Notwithstanding any other provision of any Federal law or any Federal rule, a person who is an American citizen and is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from possessing, carrying, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to carry on his person in a loaded, readily-accessible capacity and transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place in any state to any other place in a different state in accordance with the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution. (2) FEDERAL PREEMPTION The states are hereby preempted from regulating firearms that are transported into, out of, or through their state by a person who is an American citizen and is not a resident of that state, regardless of whether or not the firearm is carried in a loaded, readily-accessible capacity, pursuant to the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution. NOW, LET IT HEREBY BE RESOLVED that we, the people of the United States of America, including, but not limited to, members of the SBTC and NRA, respectfully request the NRA leadership immediately embrace, endorse, and lobby for the passage of the SBTC's proposed MICHAEL'S LAW AMENDMENT in the interest of protecting all Americans' gun rights.  (Click Here to join the Michael's Law Amendment group on Facebook).

Los Angeles DCFS: Cagle the Cannibal Must Go!

Bobby Cagle, director of Los Angeles DCFS, is supposed to protect children. Instead, he is a child abuser and is connected to multiple child murders and uncounted acts of abuse. He has confessed to suborning perjury in order to kidnap my children. He has confessed to child sex trafficking. He believes nothing can happen to him as he believes he owns the LAPD. Cagle has publicly stated his support for child murder. He has publicly stated his support for cannibalism (specifically, eating dead babies).  Suiting words to action, he has used his total control of Los Angeles Children's Court to order his fellow abuser, Judge Michael Whitaker, to force children into a "home" run by a mentally ill child killer and cannibal. This is what he has done to my two wonderful sons, Nikolay and Kennedy Taylor. Their days are numbered as I post this petition. The only thing we don't know is the number. If we can get rid of Cagle soon, my boys can still be saved. I will go into great detail about Cagle's abuse in upcoming updates--and it's going to be hard reading, as Cagle specializes in prolonged torture of children, ending in murder. I want to make it clear that the murders and abuse of children under DCFS "care" are not "failures of the system." They are intentional. The eight people I have dealt with at DCFS are all child abusers. That cannot be coincidence. The fish rots from the head, as the saying goes. Cagle hires child abusers in his own image. Cagle targeted and specifically chose to abuse my children, and thousands of others. He has known from the beginning what he was doing. It is no accident my children were targeted for child sex trafficking, for abuse by a violent racist, and are now in the "care" of a child killer. Those who have signed my sister petition, Bring My Sons Home, know the story already, but I will go through it here in updates to show precisely Cagle's involvement. What I want done: Cagle has to go, preferably in handcuffs. It is beyond any rational justification to have a child abuser in charge of a child protection agency. The child murders in LA county need to be thoroughly investigated not just as for who struck the final blow, but also to show Cagle's involvement. I have seen with my own sons how Cagle micro-manages the cases to order child abuse. He is obsessed with hurting children. Consider this horrifying statistic: there are almost 1000 missing children in the LA County foster care system. I have seen this horror with my own eyes, seen the scars on my children's faces. Based on my own experience and research, I think most of those children are dead. Some may be barely alive, having been sold to the porn industry, as Cagle tried to do to my sons. Every last one of those boys and girls need to be found ASAP. A massive law enforcement effort must be made. If someone, like Bobby Cagle, endorses child murder and cannibalism, he has to go!   Protect children? Cagle has never protected a child in his life. He is at the very least, an accessory to child murder, as in the brutal killings of Anthony Avalos and Laila Marie Daniel, ages 10 and 2 respectively. Bobby Cagle may in fact be a serial child killer, and those 1000 missing children may be dead at his hands, or at his orders. Cagle the Cannibal has to go.
