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:
How dare Barack HUSSEIN Obama turn the Memorial Service for the 12 murdered at the Washington Navy Yard into a political platform for his already failed in Congress gun control platform.
“I’m here today to say there’s nothing routine about this tragedy. There’s nothing routine about your loss…We must insist here today there is nothing normal about innocent men and women being gunned down where they work,” Obama told those gathered (setting the stage for calling this massacre yet another case of ‘workplace violence’ perhaps), and then he morphed into full political campaign mode… forgetting why he was there…as he started spewing his entire ‘bad gun’ rhetoric.

I posted this 3 weeks ago but suddenly it has gone viral with a vengeance, so I am reposting it. Enjoy.
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.
Liberal activist judges toe the ideological line, no matter how far removed it is from actual US law. To them, they are just slinging crap against the wall to see what will stick. But this judge goes so far over the line and makes such a ridiculous point that he ought to be tested for drugs.
The Mississippi Supreme Court slapped down a decision by a circuit court judge, who held up the implementation for over two months. The court ruled unanimously that the circuit court judge had erred as a matter of law. The judge, Winston Kidd, had placed an injunction on the bill, saying that the law was too vague and that a reasonable person could not understand what is and what is not permissible.
Missouri is about to take a big step in stopping Obama from enforcing new gun laws. Gov Nixon vetoed the bill, but it originally passed both houses by more than enough votes to override it. The new law could send federal officers to a year in prison for trying to enforce laws within their borders.
Missouri legislators are about to override a veto by Gov Jay Nixon, to enact one of the toughest nullification laws in the US. The bill would make it a crime for federal officers to attempt to enforce federal gun laws in Missouri carrying a possible sentence of 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine. The same penalty would apply to journalists who publish information about gun owners.Several democrats have already said they would vote to override the veto, even though they feel the bill is unconstitutional. They concede that they come from parts of the state where a no vote is a career ending move. They feel the bill is unconstitutional because it places state law above federal law and it violates the freedom of the press.
An interesting report comes out of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public policy. It’s on the effects of gun control on violence. I found out things I didn’t know before and if you didn’t know the source of the material, you would swear it came directly from the NRA. You’d better read it here, because it will never see the light of day in the liberal media.
For an administration that seems so dead set against racism, they have funny ways of showing it. They have an employee in the DHS, who advocates shooting a large number of whites and who engages in anti-gay diatribes. The scary part is that this employees buys guns and ammunition for the DHS. If he were white and advocated killing blacks, would he still have a job?
