Albuquerque Defend the Second Amendment Rally

Today I went to the Defend the Second Amendment Rally at the New Mexico Veterans Memorial (1100 Louisiana Blvd SE).

About 50-60 people attended the rally, which started at about 11:00 AM (we were congregating in the parking lot up to and a bit past 11:00).

Shawn Haufe and Jamie Fraser-Paige

Jamie Fraser-Paige and event organizer Shawn Haufe talked for about 45 minutes about various points of interest to Second Amendment supporters, including —

  • There were only 50-60 people attending today, versus several thousand at the recent victim disarmament rallies in New Mexico.
  • Most rank-and-file law enforcement officers are solid supporters of the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right.
  • The outspoken Democrats are almost in lockstep unison behind the victim disarmament agenda.
  • Properly secure your weapons when not using them or carrying them.
  • The lamestream snoozemedia is almost in lockstep unison in support of the victim disarmament agenda.
  • We don’t care if you’re black, white, Hispanic, gay, straight, Christian, Jew, whatever, just so long as you support liberty for everyone.

Republican candidate for Secretary of State JoHanna Cox attended. She told the audience that this is her first time running for public office, she’s an attorney by trade, and that one of the things she’s looking to do as Secretary of State is to help people who have completed their terms of parole or probation or been pardoned get their Second Amendment rights to own and carry weapons reinstated.

JoHanna Cox addressing the audience

(In a freer nation, once someone completes their probation and parole terms or is pardoned, THAT’S IT — their pre-existing civil, human, Constitutional right to own and carry weapons, as supposed to be protected from government infringement by the Second Amendment and Art.II Sec.6 of the New Mexico State Constitution, would once again be upheld and respected in full.)

The next rally is tentatively scheduled to be at Veterans Memorial Park in Rio Rancho (950 Pinetree Rd SE) on Saturday, 12 May 2018, at 11:00 AM. Check in with the Gun Owners of New Mexico pages (here and here) and group on Facebook for details and updates!

Kokesh for Not-President Event in ABQ

Filed under: Events, Friends, Networking, Organizing, Politics — Tags: , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 6:01 AM (06:01)

Last night (Thursday, 16 November 2017), I attended Adam Kokesh’s TaxationIsTheft — Albuquerque event at Cervantes Restaurant and Lounge (5801 Gibson SE) in Albuquerque, where he spelled out his campaign for “Not President” for 2020.

Also attending were Adam’s Not Campaign Manager Ben Farmer, along with local libertarian luminaries Bill Koehler, Frank Martin and Robert Kruger.

Adam speaks!

For what it’s worth, I volunteered to be the New Mexico State Coordinator for the Not Campaign.

I first met Adam in June 2009 at a planning meeting for his campaign for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District, and have been impressed with him ever since.

Afterwards, we went to his new touring RV, which the team had decided to name “No Force One.” He seemed a bit disappointed when I told him that this wasn’t the first vehicle with the moniker (one of Harry Browne’s campaigns had access to a small aircraft with the same name).

[ABQ Journal] ABQ mayor’s marijuana veto survives challenge

ABQ mayor’s marijuana veto survives challenge

By Dan McKay / Journal Staff Writer
Published: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 at 7:26pm
Updated: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 at 11:09pm

Mayor Richard Berry’s veto of a marijuana decriminalization bill withstood a challenge from Albuquerque city councilors on Wednesday.

Democrats on the City Council failed to persuade one of their Republican colleagues to change positions and join them in favor of a veto override.

But no one changed positions. The override attempt failed on a 5-4 vote along party lines.

It takes six of nine councilors to override a mayoral veto.

About a half-dozen speakers urged councilors to override the veto and enact the legislation – which called for making it a civil offense, not a criminal violation, under city law to possess an ounce or less of marijuana.

A companion bill sought to make marijuana a low priority for law enforcement.

Berry, a Republican, vetoed both proposals. He said they conflicted with state and federal law.

Councilors Isaac Benton and Rey Garduño, who co-sponsored the legislation, said cities have authority to set their own penalties for marijuana possession. That gives police officers discretion to cite people under either a local ordinance or under state law, they said.

Furthermore, the two argued, local voters already support reducing marijuana penalties.

“We don’t have to wait for the federal government or the state of New Mexico to tell us how to govern our own community, or respond to the voice of the community,” Benton said as he read a joint statement.

About 60 percent of Bernalillo County voters last year expressed support for decriminalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana. That was in response to a nonbinding question on the general-election ballot.

None of the council’s four Republicans spoke about the veto Wednesday. But they’ve previously said they don’t view city government as the right venue for changing drug laws.

That didn’t stop people from trying to change their minds.

Mike Blessing of the Libertarian Party of New Mexico told councilors they were supporting organized crime if they refuse to change the law. Support for an override, however, means “you’re standing up for free markets,” Blessing said.

Other supporters said that a marijuana conviction can make it hard to find a job and that enforcement draws resources away from more-serious crimes.

“The war on drugs has been a terrible failure,” Garduño said. “We know this isn’t working.”

In New Mexico, marijuana use is legal only for medical purposes.

Supporting the override were Benton, Garduño, Ken Sanchez, Diane Gibson and Klarissa Peña, all Democrats.

Republicans Brad Winter, Dan Lewis, Trudy Jones and Don Harris voted “no.”

  1. Register to vote as “Libertarian” so that your voter registration card reads “LIB” in the spot marked “PARTY” (lower right-hand corner).
  2. Sign up as what the LPNM refers to as a “Caucus Member.” Basically, this means that you’ve signed the Non-Aggression Pledge and paid $25 in dues. You can do this at the Convention itself, as we’ll have the necessary paperwork on hand.

  2. Sign up with the LPNM as a Caucus Member (see above).
  3. Get nominated by your peers at the State Convention (or a County Convention for offices contained entirely in one county).
  4. Download and thoroughly read the candidate guides available from the Secretary of State’s office, as they contain all of the details required by the State of New Mexico – filing dates, signature requirements, etc.

    See here for the guides – http://www.sos.state.nm.us/Candidate_And_Pac_Information/

  5. Read the Run for Office page at lp.org

  2. Sign up with the LPNM as a Caucus Member (see above).
  3. Show up at this convention and signify willingness to be a delegate.
  4. Sign up as a National member.
  5. Download and read the LP National Bylaws and Convention Rules
  6. Show up at the National Convention.

Filed under: Blogging / Writing, Events, Life, Networking, Science, Technology — Tags: , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:35 PM (16:35)

  1. Bubonicon
    1. Kinda wanted to go to Bubonicon 45 this weekend, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. I just wasn’t sufficiently motivated. There were only a couple of panels that sounded even remotely interesting – I’m not going to blow 45-50 for one or two panels. Maybe they can make video recordings of them and post those recordings to YouTube?
    2. Bubonicon 46
      1. Would like to do something like a suite for the Libertarian Futurist Society
        1. Topics
          1. What role should politics have in science fiction?
          2. What role should science fiction have in politics?
          3. Trends in science fiction, publishing, etc., in regards to libertarian science fiction
        2. Record any panels for YouTube, etc. Same sort of rules as for monthly ABQ Liberty Forums at Frontier.
        3. Relevant links –
          1. Bubonicon
          2. Libertarian Futurist Society
  2. STAIF-2 2014
    1. Location – to be determined and announced
    2. Dates – 15-17 April 2014 (?)
      1. Week of spring break (11-13 March 2014) would be better. During April, most students and faculty are preparing for finals and end of semester.
    3. Agenda – to be determined and announced
    4. Price tag –
      1. Hopefully NOT 300-400 a person as in 2012 and 2013
        1. ∅300-400 per person is OK for people on expense accounts (paid for by others – government, military, corporate, university, etc.) or with spare cash to blow.
        2. ∅100 per person is more like it when the expected attendees are showing up on their own dime. Especially in this lousy economy – ∅300-400 is a bit much even during good times.
    5. Website – http://staif2.org
    6. Create Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter and Youtube accounts for STAIF-2 ?
    7. Reserve blogs at WordPress and Blogger / Blogspot – staif2.wordpress.com, staif2.blogspot.com ?
    8. Co-locate at Bubonicon 46 – use a party suite for presentations?
      1. Would save on expenses, allowing STAIF to cut admission by a factor of 20
  3. LPNM / LPBC
    1. Start posting to Twitter, Google Plus accounts
