President Joe Biden claims to support legalization of marijuana and forgiving those previously charged with pot possession. Yet his administration has worked overtime to block gun rights to those who legally use the drug either recreationally or medicinally.

Even more incredibly, in a Tenth Circuit case, Biden’s Justice Department actually argued that the District Court erred when it rejected antiquated laws disarming Catholics when considering a present-day case involving marijuana.

No really. Earlier this year, ol’ Joe read what was on the Prompter in front of him, announcing his deep “commitment” to “equal justice” for those convicted of marijuana possession. From Marijuana Moment . . .

President Joe Biden on Monday said that marijuana reform is part of his commitment to “equal justice,” arguing that people should be released from prison and have their records cleared for simple possession.

Speaking at a Martin Luther King Jr. Day hosted by the National Action Network’s (NAN), the president said he was keeping his “promise” by providing relief to those who’ve been criminalized over cannabis.

At almost the exact same time, the US Justice Department sought the prosecution of a marijuana user for also possessing a gun. A federal grand jury indicted Jared Harrison on the charge. Unfortunately for the US Attorney, a district court judge tossed the indictment as a violation of the Second Amendment on a motion from Harrison’s attorneys.

Now, in the case of US v. Harrison, the Justice Department has filed a brief arguing that laws disarming Catholics were righteous and serve as a valid historical analogue in support of the present-day ban on marijuana users possessing firearms.

The district court erred when it rejected laws disarming Catholics and loyalists.

i. The district court misapprehended the reason for the laws and the
government’s argument about them.

The district court erred for several reasons when it rejected the use of founding-era laws disarming Catholics and loyalists. To begin, the district court as a factual matter misconstrued the reason the laws were enacted and the government’s argument regarding them. In its order, the district court described those laws as “a variety of rather ignominious historical restrictions that [the government] argues demonstrates a historical tradition permitting legislatures to disarm those whom the legislature views as ‘untrustworthy…’”

In short, whatever the Meat Puppet in Chief may say in front of the cameras, the Department of Justice continues the fight against guns by arguing in support or racist, classist, and sexist gun control laws. Like the scorpion on the frog’s back, they just can’t help themselves.

      • Yes, of course Catholics. Millions of children have been terrorized by Catholic teachers with rulers! Disam them all! I was baptized a Catholic, but I left as quickly as I could because I couldn’t face those terrorists. Remember, these Catholics were in charge of the Inquisitions a few centuries ago!!

        • “Millions of children have been terrorized by Catholic teachers with rulers!”

          I’m gonna have to ask the girlfriend if I can buy her a habit outfit and a ruler, for a little play acting…

          Mmmmmmm… (*Boing*!) 🙂

      • The English Bill of Rights (1689):

        “That the subjects which are Protestants may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions and as allowed by law.”

        Catholic? Forget it…..

    • Don’t forget the parents for God’s sake. They are worse than Catholics in the trustworthy department.

  1. Translation: The government should be allowed to disarm people they don’t like while not disarming the people they do like.

    That is, at the end of it, these people’s basic standard: If I like you, you are right, if I don’t like you, you are wrong.

  2. Complain all you want. But the republicans are far more loyal to the second amendment. Than the democrats are when they claim they support leg@lizing marijuana.

    And when the democrats do work to leg@lize pot. They work at the same time to take away your civil right to keep and bear arms.

    It’s always been a trade. You’re legalized drugs for the repeal of your gun rights.

  3. We’ve had two pot head president’s. Clinton and Obama. Both worked to take away your gun rights. And both never worked to repeal the drug laws.

    • … and currently have a pot / crack / meth / coke apologist on behalf of his offspring, whom instructed his DOJ to look the other way…. or else.

      • RE: “In short, whatever the Meat Puppet in Chief may say in front of the cameras, the Department of Justice continues the fight against guns by arguing in support or racist, classist, and sexist gun control laws. Like the scorpion on the frog’s back, they just can’t help themselves.”

        Give democRats enough rope and they’ll hang themselves with what are race based atrocities or the residue from race based atrocities the Party owns lock, stock and barrel…Good article Mr. Boch.

        • I’m sure his heart swells with pride, knowing he has your approval… 🙂

        • Meat Puppets everywhere are feeling insulted by this Meat Puppet in Chief commentary.

  4. Well how about that, a Catholic wanting to disarm Catholics.
    KKK much?
    Marijuana is no more dangerous then alcohol and maybe even less so.
    Ask any cop who they would rather deal with.
    A drunk or a high on pot head.
    That’s not the issue however, it’s a any reason “We” can conjure to remove a constitutional right.
    Traitor.
    Ulp. Did I accidentally say something negative about our president. Ahh ohh my bad.
    President Biden is the greatest president America has or ever will have
    President Biden is the greatest president America has or ever will have
    President Biden is the greatest president America has or ever will have
    Holy Holy Holy
    forever and ever
    Amen

    • Regret to inform you, I am a retired Police Officer and Corrections Sergeant. I would much prefer to deal with a drunk that a pot head.

  5. The average pot smoker isn’t usually a danger. The usual dangers come from those engaged in illegal sales, production or smuggling of illegal substances. Or from those who turn to criminal activities to support drug habits.
    The bigger question would be why the Dementiacrats want to keep people drugged, fat, lazy, ignorant and disarmed, and dependent on government.
    In doing so you end up with unproductive citizens who have nothing to contribute, or even pay taxes. Without a tax base government will fail.

    • OldmaninAL,

      “….drugged, fat, lazy, ignorant and disarmed, and dependent on government.”

      So, you’ve met my brother-in-law?

    • Exactly. Of course, the greatest danger in the history of cannabis in this country, have been people wearing DOE and other badges. They love to raid a drug deal, shoot all the dogs, and half the people, while tossing grenades into baby’s cribs. Then charge the dealer with murder, attempted murder, and animal cruelty along with all the drug charges.

    • “The biggest question in economics and politics of the coming decade will be what to do with all these useless people.

      How will they find some sense of meaning in life when they are basically meaningless, worthless? My best guess at present is a combination of drugs and computer games.”

      -Yuval Noah Harari

    • Marijuana use in adolescence is extremely dangerous, possibly more than alcohol. It actually changes brain chemistry, This often leads to schizophrenia in their late teens and 20’s. there is no recovery from this. I don’t expect you to believe me, so research it yourself.
      Have you ever attempted to have a serious conversation with a marijuana user?. Reality and physics will never be in the conversation, My Border Collie is smarter than most marijuana users. But it is your life, just don’t expect everyone to be OK with your bad choices.

  6. ASSAULT WEAPON BAN HEARING: Federal Appellate Court Scrutinizes AR-15/Magazine Bans under 2A

  7. Pot smokers are more gentle than a drunk yet alcoholics get a pass on everything, even multiple DUI’s and assaults.

  8. Whoa! Joe Biden is a Catholic, he has 5 guns according to Hunter Biden. Hunters sister-in-law-turned-lover, her son is Catholic and according to Hunter he has more guns in his bed room than an armory.

    So the DOJ is letting these untrustworthy Catholics have guns and not investing it and bringing charges?

    • During an hours-long text’ed conversation on Oct. 23, 2018, Hunter Biden tore into his sister-in-law-turned-lover/pump-piece-when-hookers-not-avaiable for disposing of the gun in a garbage-bin outside a grocery store in Wilmington, Del.

      In response to Hallie’s claim that she was afraid Hunter would use the gun Hunter texted back “To do what Hallie.” and further texted “They think you’re scared I would shoot you,” he went on before calling her a “f—ing a–hole.”

      Then further Hunter texted … “You now have me as an abusive pedophile with homicidal tendencies,” Hunter went on. “And that’s now in the hands of the FBI.”

      Also, in the texted exchange Hunter wrote “There are 5 guns in dads house. There are f​—ing more weapons in your sons room then in an armory,” Hunter again messaged Hallie at 9:20 p.m. “What’s my f— up? Owning a gun?”

      That’s all a matter of actual texted conversation proven to be between Hunter and Hallie.

      • Sounds like more Putin misinformation… Like shutting down the coal/wood fired pizza ovens or banning gas stoves, THEY are not coming for your stoves, your guns or your pizza… The Bribem regime only cares about your economic welfare and your quality of life… Did I do that right possum?

        • You mean this one

          Our Bribem who art in the Whitehouse
          Braindead be thy name
          Your bureaucrats come, thy will be done
          To lock us all in chains
          Give us this day our monthly check
          and forgive us our student loans
          as we sit unemployed in our mothers basement
          and lead us not into prosperity but deliver us from MAGA
          for thou art truly the worst US President in history… Can I get an amen…

  9. 2nd time my reply was moderated and did not reappear?
    Gee whizz and I said what? Marijuana users are less of a danger then drunks(My opinion)? Bidens a Catholic and he wants to disarm catholics. KKK much?
    Or was it my posting the Our Biden prayer?
    Gee whizz I’m trying to be a good lacky and I’m being treated just like all the rest . I’m confused

    • in the last three days 90% of what I’ve posted has gone to moderation. One thing I posted two days ago just appeared this morning.

      • I’ve had postings delayed, then posted, then removed, then posted in a totally unrelated article, all while reading fractured Engrish postings of how to make much simple good fortune with miminale computer and lanquish skils.
        It would actually be entertaining if you turned it into a drinking game.

    • drink … okay
      drink ing … NOT ALLOWED!
      someone … okay
      someone else … NOT ALLOWED!
      yet … okay
      yet another … NOT ALLOWED!
      Why? Why?? WHYYYY?!?!?!?

  10. The District Court read the meaning of these laws correctly. They were passed to disarm those who disagreed with the government. No different from what the Biden administration would like to do today.

  11. The DOJ, an agency of the US government, says Catholics are untrustworthy… let’s see if MSM somewhere writes up an article on that. 😅

    anyway…

    States Can Now Limit The Amount Of Firearms You Can Own?!

  12. I thought Catholics overwhelmingly voted for Joe? And the 94′ crime bill that Joe sponsored is said to be responsible for more incarcerations for minor infractions (pot use) than any other law. Since he’s on record as a segregationist it makes since to outlaw firearms for whole groups of people.

    • “I thought Catholics overwhelmingly voted for Joe?”

      of the Catholics that voted about 42% voted for Joe. Compared to the Catholics that did not vote and the ones that voted Trump…that 42% for Joe was “overwhelmingly” in that context but compared to the overall Catholic population its a minority.

  13. I dunt care what side of the islands you on or if you sits or stands in the crapper. We cant have dem cathlic nuns running round here all stoned and everthings shooten up da place wit thems guns.
