Mark Witaschek is a successful businessman and law abiding citizen living in Washington D.C. On June 7th, 2012, members of the D.C. gun recovery unit asked Witaschek if they could search his home for guns. Witaschek gave them permission. They found one box of Winchester .40 ammunition, a gun cleaning kit (legal), and a Civil War era pistol. They confiscated the pistol even it is legal to own one without a permit.
One month later, on July 7th, 2012, 30 police in full combat gear raided Witaschek’s home. His 16 year old son was in the shower and the police broke down the bathroom door with a battering ram and pulled the naked boy from the bathroom and took him to a room with his three siblings.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) on Friday revealed that evidence was uncovered that not only is D.C. engaged in double-standards, but that the District of Columbia and Philadelphia police departments provided firearms to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) to help her promote her “assault weapon” ban legislation in January.
The NRA also stated that the police agencies who gave Feinstein the weapons denied the same request from Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for firearms to be used in their presentations opposing the ban. Continue reading
Gun rights activists have received permission from the Colorado State Attorney General’s office, to start gathering signatures to recall a third senator, Evie Hudak. This comes on the heels of two successful recalls just last month. A win here would turn the state senate over to the republicans.
The petitoners need 18,900 signatures in order to force a recall election. Mike McAlpine, a spokesman for the group emailed the Denver Post with the following statement:
An 18 year old teen was alone, when he heard noises outside his home in the Mission Oaks neighborhood. On Friday afternoon. Two men banged on the front door but he refused to answer it. The two men then went around the house to a back door. The boy called his father, who gave him instructions. The men broke in and the teen opened fire, killing one man, and sending the other one on the run.

Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy has just released a study of the relative effects of stringent gun laws. They found that a country like Luxenbourg, which bans all guns has a murder rate that is 9 times higher than Germany, where there are 30,000 guns per 100,000 people. They also cited a study by the U.S.National Academy of Sciences, which studied 253 journal articles, 99 books, 43 government publications, and it failed to find one gun control initiative that worked.
In fact, in many cases it found that violence is very often lower, where guns are more readily available. The report points to a myth that guns are more easily obtained in the United States than in Europe. That is factually incorrect.
Multiple liberal news outlets use a false narrative of Washington Naval Yard shooter, Aaron Alexis, used an AR-15 in his attacks. Piers Morgan, the New York Daily News, and CNN, among a host of others having been playing up the AR-15 angle in an effort to revive their gun banning laws.
Reliable sources have reported that Alexis had a shotgun and two pistols. it is believed he brought the shotgun and removed the two pistols from his victims. The real question is how could someone with a long history of mental problems get access to such a secure area. That is the same question people mare asking about Nidal Malik Hasan, the Fort Hood shooter.
Mayor Bloomberg of New York has made a claim that 7 children are murdered with a gun every day of the year. (2555) For the purpose of determining children, the numbers are usually ages 1 through 14. But according to Center For Disease Control and Prevention‘s 2011 National Vital Statistics Report, the number of children murdered between the ages of 1 and 4 are 370 for the country. Murders of children 5 to 14 is 269. And that’s all murders, not just gun deaths. Therefore the number of children killed would be less than 1.7 a day.
When you think of Miss America, you don’t think of motor cycle racing, auto mechanics, skydiving, sharpshooting, or bow hunting. Yet, those activities and many more go into what makes up Miss Kansas,
She’s a redneck boy’s dream come true. Theresa Vail is a bowhunter, an M-16 sharpshooter, skydiver, national guard soldier, gease monkey, and also Miss Kansas. She’s been a motorcycle racing queen and can skin out a deer with the best of them. And if that wasn’t enough to melt your heart, she is also devastatingly beautiful.
She is not, to say the least, your typical beauty queen contestant. She will also differ from past and present contestants in another way. She intends to let the whole world see her tattoos, which include the Serenity Prayer and the army’s medical insignia. Usually contestants have their tattoos removed or covered strategically by their bathing suit.
Last night’s recall elections, the first two in the history of Colorado, were hugely successful in driving two democratic state senators from office. John Morse and Angela Giron, were both recalled yesterday, in which the nation looked on as a referendum for gun control. Giron’s loss was somewhat unexpected, since democrats outnumber republicans in that district, by a whopping 47% to 23%.
Since the recall petitions went out, the elections have been seen of national importance for both sides. Gun control has always been a national issue that have led to certain defeat on election day, but forces within the democratic gun control lobby, insisted that the tide had turned. It was the biggest surprise since the Little Big Horn.
