For womb the bell tolls
Post Date: 2011-12-31 12:17:11 by CZ82
For womb the bell tolls THE LAST TIME liberal women got the idea to use their wombs as an argument for gun control, Representatives Carolyn McCarthy, D-N.Y., Nita M. Lowey, D-N.Y., and Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., were uttering such prattle as "women find they have a maternal instinct" for gun control. A reporter for The New York Times observed at the time that the congresswomen "seem(ed) to miss the irony that the same political party that claimed ownership of the position that women could be more than mothers is, in this instance, casting them primarily in that role." The Million Mom March (which infected the nation's capital on Sunday) was poised to set women's ...

Post Date: 2011-12-08 08:09:07 by A K A Stone
Licensing should not be part of exercising the right to keep and bear arms, the grassroots group Georgia Gun Owners asserts in a press release issued today. Announcing the pre-filing of the Georgia Constitutional Carry Act of 2012 (HB679) by State Representative Jason Spencer, the bill promises to eliminate the requirement to have a Georgia Weapons Carry License to carry firearms openly or concealed, as is currently established lawful practice in Vermont, Alaska, Arizona and Wyoming. Per Georgia Gun Owners, the legislation will: Eliminate the mandatory intrusive government requirement for background checks of law-abiding Georgia gun owners; Eliminate the mandatory requirement ...

As the debate raged last week over the attempt to pass a law that would allow U.S. citizens to be detained indefinitely without trial, Americans were busy preparing for their own form of homeland security, as gun sales hit an all time high for a single day on Black Friday.

Florida teen detained by TSA for design on her purse
Post Date: 2011-12-03 21:40:25 by jwpegler
It's not unusual for 17-year-old to find themselves in hot water with the fashion police. But on a flight from Virginia to Florida, Vanessa Gibbs found herself detained by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) over the appearance of her purse. And just to be clear, it wasn't the content inside the purse that the TSA objected to. No, agency officials took exception with the design of a gun on Gibbs' handbag. "It's my style, it's camouflage, it has an old western gun on it," Gibbs told News4Jax.com. Gibbs didn't run into any trouble while traveling north from Jacksonville International Airport. But on her way back home, TSA officials at Norfolk ...
Man killed by his own concealed weapon
Post Date: 2011-11-21 01:01:48 by A K A Stone
A Spotsylvania County man with a valid concealed-weapon permit died after a semi-automatic pistol without an external safety discharged as he tried to adjust the weapon, which was tucked into his waistband, investigators have concluded. The 45-year-old man was sitting in the front seat of his family's minivan in a shopping center parking lot on Sunday when his .40-caliber Glock discharged, authorities said. "For some reason, maybe for comfort, he reached out and went to adjust it," said Spotsylvania sheriff's Capt. Liz Scott. "The detective thinks that in doing so in just grabbing it he inadvertently grabbed the trigger." "This particular ...
A Way to Put a STOP To Gun Control
Post Date: 2011-11-08 04:38:41 by Coral Snake
Here ia a way I propose for all Pro Gun Congresscritters and State, County and City Legislators to put a stop to gun control. Simply amend the laws to tell the HISTORIC TRUTH about such legislation and penalize the passers of the legislation if that65 HISTORIC TRUTH happens again. Here is an example of such an amendment. Whereas, "Gun Control" legislation, even of a so called "reasonable" kind has been tied to every Genocidal action from the Native American Wars to the current genocides in East Africa including the Soviet Holodomer in the Ukraine and the Anti-Semitic Holocaust in Nazi Germany. and Whereas, "Gun Control" legislation has never reduced the rate ...
21 Submachine Guns Stolen From LAPD SWAT
Post Date: 2011-10-17 18:52:48 by Brian S
Thieves made off with 21 submachine guns and various other weapons from a Los Angeles Police Department SWAT training site last week. The 21 MP-5 submachine guns and 12 high-caliber handguns had been modified to fire only simulated rounds, but could be converted back to use live ammunition in about five minutes, according to KABC. Locks on at least three doors had been cut through to reach the weapons. The guns had been moved to a lock box in the facility Wednesday. By the time officers arrived for training Thursday, the items had been stolen. The department had only recently converted the former textile building for SWAT training purposes. Although LAPD Deputy Chief Michael Downing ...
Washington, D.C. Assault Weapons Ban Constitutional, Appeals Court Rules
Post Date: 2011-10-04 11:20:37 by Brian S
Washington, D.C.s ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines doesnt violate the constitutional rights of residents in the U.S. capital, a federal appeals court ruled. The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington today also upheld registration requirements for handguns put in place after a landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2008 ended the citys almost total ban on firearms. The three-judge panel ordered a lower court to further review other aspects of Washingtons gun control law, such as its limits on multiple purchases. The District has carried its burden of showing a substantial relationship between the prohibition of both semi- automatic rifles and ...
Atf: Illegal To Sell Guns To Med Marijuana Users
Post Date: 2011-09-28 18:42:06 by Brian S
(09-28) 15:26 PDT Helena, Mont. (AP) -- Firearms dealers in states that allow medical marijuana can't sell guns or ammunition to registered users of the drug, a policy that marijuana and gun-rights groups say denies Second Amendment rights to individuals who are following state law. Federal law already makes it illegal for someone to possess a gun if he or she is "an unlawful user of, or addicted to" marijuana or other controlled substances. A Sept. 21 letter from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, issued in response to numerous inquiries from gun dealers, clarifies that medical marijuana patients are included in that definition. "There are no ...

SEPTEMBER 21--Angered that his Taco Bell drive-thru order failed to include hot sauce, a Missouri man returned to the fast food restaurant and allegedly pulled a shotgun on an employee, who fled in fear from the takeout window.

Concealed Guns Backed by 243 in U.S. House
Post Date: 2011-09-12 13:43:22 by Brian S
Ive never touched a handgun and I havent been to Florida in decades, yet this month Florida officials mailed me a permit to carry a concealed gun. If Congress adopts a bill that the National Rifle Association is pushing, Floridas licenses would apply to 49 states in all -- allowing their holders to carry hidden guns in places such as midtown Manhattan, where the New York Police Department rejects most such applications for concealed- carry permits. Only Illinois and Washington D.C., where residents arent allowed to carry concealed handguns at all, would be exempt. Co-sponsored by more than half the members of the U.S. House, the bill requires any ...
EXCLUSIVE: Third Gun Linked to 'Fast and Furious' Identified at Border Agent's Murder Scene (SKS)
Post Date: 2011-09-09 14:39:38 by hondo68
VIDEO A third gun linked to "Operation Fast and Furious" was found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, new documents obtained exclusively by Fox News suggest, contradicting earlier assertions by federal agencies that police found only two weapons tied to the federal government's now infamous gun interdiction scandal. Sources say emails support their contention that the FBI concealed evidence to protect a confidential informant. Sources close to the Terry case say the FBI informant works inside a major Mexican cartel and provided the money to obtain the weapons used to kill Terry. Unlike the two AK-style assault weapons found at the scene, the third ...

Time to "Gun Control" the "Gun Control" States (A Behind The Georgia Guidestones Special Article) By Coral Snake The gun control crowd is at it again. This time trying to build a way around the "electoral colledge" system of electing the President so they can have a perpetual lock on the Presidency and candidates for the SCOTUS in hopes of overturning the Washinton DC and Chicago SCOTUS descisions against handgun bans and bringing them bact to the table. Gun grabber governor Jerry (Moon Beam) Brown has recently signed a law in in the People's Republic of Commiefornia that gives its electoral votes not to the presidential candidate that wins the popular ...

(AP) -- Virginia Tech was locked down Thursday when three children attending a summer camp said they saw a man holding what looked like a gun, an unsettling report on the campus where a 2007 massacre left 33 people dead.

Super Congress To Target Second Amendment
Post Date: 2011-08-01 20:34:14 by hondo68
The so-called "Super Congress" that is about to be created with the debt ceiling vote will have powers far beyond just controlling the nation's purse strings -- its authority will extend to target the second amendment -- eviscerating normal protections that prevent unconstitutional legislation from being fast-tracked into law. As the Huffington Post reported last month, the debt deal that has already been passed by the House and faces the Senate tomorrow will create an unconstitutional "Super Congress" that will be comprised of six Republicans and six Democrats and granted "extraordinary new powers" to quickly force legislation through both chambers. ...
Another alien universe heard from: Guns "should be illegal for all but properly constituted, trained and controlled agencies of governments."

Professor A.C. Grayling, citizen disarmament advocate and author of "Life, Sex, and Ideas: The Good Life Without God," strikes a heroic pose. A tip of the boonie hat and deep genuflection to Snaggle- Tooth Jones for forwarding a link to this opinion by Professor A.C. Grayling entitled: "What would Breivik be without a gun? The global arms trade inevitably leads to the sort of atrocity inflicted on Norway. The killing machine has to be stopped."In discussion of the atrocity in Norway last week, there is one subject which has been notable by the almost total silence about it: guns. In response to recurring massacres in American high schools and British villages, in ...

Post Date: 2011-07-30 19:56:45 by hondo68
FORT IRWIN, Calif. Federal officials say more than two dozen firearms have been stolen from a Southern California military base. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says in a statement Friday that 26 AK-74 assault rifles and one Dragunov sniper rifle were stolen from a supply warehouse at Fort Irwin in San Bernardino County on July 15.

Exclusive: ATF Intimidates Gun Owners With Home Visits (2 guns within 5 days)
Post Date: 2011-07-29 18:41:15 by hondo68
Even as it finds itself embroiled in a scandal that saw weapons being deliberately sent to criminal gangs in Mexico, the ATF has issued a letter ordering firearms dealers in border states to report sales of two or more semi-automatic rifles, and is following it up by harassing gun owners with intimidating home visits as well as threatening gun dealers to spy on their customers. As the Justice Department announced earlier this month, "All gun shops in four Southwest border states (Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico) will be required to alert the federal government to frequent buyers of high-powered rifles." However, what the media failed to report at the time was the most ...

Democrats try to channel scandal into gun control push
Post Date: 2011-06-16 18:31:45 by CZ82
Democrats try to channel scandal into gun control push By Jonathan Strong Faced with bracing evidence and the testimony of four ATF agents contradicting the Justice Departments initial blanket denials that assault weapons were knowingly allowed to escape into the clutches of Mexican drug cartels, Democrats tried a new approach at a hearing Wednesday. Rather than focus on questioning the GOPs investigative tactics, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee sought to subtly channel the burgeoning scandal into a push for new gun control laws. For instance, Rep. Gerry Connolly, Virginia Democrat, connected the apparently reckless investigative strategy to the National Rifle ...
#4. The 18th Century Machine Gun (was Racist)
Post Date: 2011-06-11 00:00:03 by Mad Dog
In 1718 Britain, a guy named James Puckle patented the world's first rapid fire weapon: the Defense Gun, also known as the Puckle Gun. Resembling a giant revolver on a tripod, this gun claimed to be able to fire 63 shots in seven minutes (which in modern mathematics is known as "nine shots a minute"). That may not seem like much, but when you consider that the most skilled musketeers at the time could only fire three shots a minute, it was a vast improvement. "Kills three times as many Frenchmen!" The official reason why the Puckle Gun never caught on with the British Army is that it had way too many cylinders -- like three or four. Clearly this was more ...

Post Date: 2011-04-28 21:46:46 by hondo68
After sharply cutting back on the number of stores that sold guns in 2006, Wal-Mart says they'll be available again in about half its stores.
