Obama pushes to extend gun background checks to Social Security
Post Date: 2015-07-19 23:18:29 by TheFireBert
Seeking tighter controls over firearm purchases, the Obama administration is pushing to ban Social Security beneficiaries from owning guns if they lack the mental capacity to manage their own affairs, a move that could affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by others. The push is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws regulating who gets reported to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, or NICS, which is used to prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the country illegally and others. A potentially large group within Social Security are people who, in the language of federal gun laws, are unable to ...
Down The Memory Hole? ANOTHER Immigrant Mass Murder—Muslim Gunman From Kuwait Kills Unarmed Marines
Post Date: 2015-07-17 20:03:10 by nativist nationalist
The first thing I wanted to know when I saw the Washington Post report of a gunman shooting US Marines in Tennessee was What color gunman? Of course, the story didnt say, although its been updated with the gunmans name (Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez from Kuwait). I think that when MSM reporters are in press conferences, and the spokesman says We cant release the name of the gunman just yet, the reporters should be shouting that question: What color gunman? Because I promise you, people at home are shouting it at their TVs. Anyhow, the killer turns out to have been a Muslim immigrant apparently assimilated right up to the ...

The Biggest Threat to Americans? Other Americans With Guns
Post Date: 2015-07-13 04:26:36 by buckeroo
What do you think a mother would say is the greater threat to her child: Russia or guns? I couldnt help but ask myself that question on Friday when I heard the testimony of General Joseph Dunford, President Obamas nominee to be the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, before the Senate Armed Services Committee. When Dunford was asked what was the greatest threat to the United States, he responded by ranking them in this order: Russia, China, North Korea, and ISIS. Now, Dunford is undoubtedly correct when it comes to the global threats facing us, and those are the threats its his job to assess. But from a day-to-day perspective, our greatest threat, and Id ...
New SWAT Documents Detail the Brutal Reality of U.S. Police Militarization
Post Date: 2015-07-10 08:50:36 by Deckard
Massachusetts SWAT teams made headlines last year when they refused to grant a public information request to the ACLU, claiming they were private companies and, therefore, exempt from such inquiry. The ACLU subsequently sued, and last month, it received access to the documents it requested. The documents confirm that broad overreach, unnecessary and overblown tactics, and an eagerness to attack are increasingly present in law enforcement establishments around the country. The NEMLEC, or Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, encompasses multiple SWAT teams across that region of the state. According to the documents it tried to suppress, NEMLEC conducted 79 SWAT ...
Government Crusade Against Churches Begins With Removal Of Non-Profit Status
Post Date: 2015-07-07 13:31:37 by Don
In the aftermath of the Supreme Court decision mandating that states reward same-sex marriages throughout the nation, churches across the country prepare for the inevitable assault on their tax-exempt statuses. Beliefs columnist for The New York Times, Mark Oppenheimer, wrote at Time.com that churches should have their tax-exempt statuses ripped away for opposing same-sex marriage. Felix Salmon at Fusion wrote the same thing: [T]he US government subsidizes churches to the tune of many billions of dollars per year by giving them tax-exempt status.

Post Date: 2015-06-30 16:43:38 by cranko
Over the past weekend, Seattle held a few gay pride events, too. Thats where Another group of pro-Second Amendment, gay libertarians decided to attend the Emerald Citys pride gathering and test its open-carry tolerance. And they were welcomed. On Sunday, Kevin Finger and five of his friends walked down the streets of Seattle with firearms strapped to their sides and AR-15s and AK-47s slung over their shoulders. They also carried a large sign reading, Armed Gays Dont Get Bashed. The group was concerned about the reaction they might get while carrying rifles and pistols on the streets of Seattle.

SCOTUS Refuses to Hear Major Gun Rights Case, Clarence Thomas Files Sharp Dissent [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-06-22 22:24:13 by tpaine
SCOTUS Refuses to Hear Major Gun Rights Case, Clarence Thomas Files Sharp Dissent Petition denied in Jackson v. San Francisco. The U.S. Supreme Court dealt Second Amendment supporters a major defeat today by refusing to hear an appeal filed by San Francisco gun owners seeking to overturn that city's requirement that all handguns kept at home and not carried on the owners person be "stored in a locked container or disabled with a trigger lock." Todays action by the Court leaves that gun control ordinance on the books. If the facts of the San Francisco case sound familiar it is because they correspond so closely to the facts at issue in the Supreme Court's 200 ...

Interview with man who used personal firearm to save crowd from armed terroristsGod used a shepherd boy, David, armed with 5 stones to defeat Goliath.

Senate Bill Forces Gun Owners to Buy Â“Smart GunsÂ”
Post Date: 2015-06-22 07:11:15 by CZ82
Senate Bill Forces Gun Owners to Buy Smart Guns Tim Brown June 15, 2015 Communist Gun Grabbing Massachusetts Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren introduced legislation last week which is not only unconstitutional, but also a very dumb idea (pun intended). According to the bill, "anyone selling a handgun must retrofit it with personalization technology before that sale can be completed." The "Handgun Trigger Safety Act" is touted as a means of gun safety. However, at its root, it is a bill that is unconstitutional due to the fact that the government has been given specific instructions not to infringe on the rights of the people when it ...
Obama Seeks to Limit Free Speech About Guns
Post Date: 2015-06-09 09:24:49 by Deckard
For an administration that was supposed to be the most transparent in American history, the one under Obama has been everything but transparent. Of course, that's just one of the 1,063 plus examples of lies, criminal activity and treason perpetrated by Obama and his administration. There appears to be no end in sight to the treachery of Obama, allowed to perpetuate by a complicit and treasonous Congress. Obama has effectively "gagged" Congress in regard to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but it is something Congress has allowed. Executive order after executive order has seen more power being shifted to whomever occupies the Oval Office, aka Obama at this point in time. America ...
The GOP War on Private Weapons In America [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-06-04 05:54:11 by Deckard
Publishers Note: I am a resigned life member of the NRA. I am a non-voter. I think the Constitution is a diabolically clever instrument to make a slave people think they are free. I am in favor to the total decriminalization and deregulation of all weapons systems across the Fetid Plain. There is not a weapons law on the books at any level of government in America I support. The only disarmament program I can get behind is all statist badged armed employees should be totally ungunned of all lethal and non-lethal systems until all government police forces are disbanded nation-wide. Things would be sporty, for about an hour. I have confined this analysis to Republican mischief at ...
DOJ TO BYPASS CONGRESS WITH 12+ GUN CONTROLS
Post Date: 2015-05-31 21:55:02 by out damned spot
Obamas Department of Justice is working on more than a dozen new gun control regulations it plans to begin implementing apart from Congress. Some of the regulations are set to be put in place by November, others simply by the end of the Obama administration. According to The Hill, the regulations range from new restrictions on high- powered pistols to gun storage requirements and the issuance of new rules expanding criteria for people who do not quality for gun ownership. Part and parcel to this new criteria will be an ATF-implemented ban on gun ownership for anyone convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence. Gun Owners ...
Detroit Cop Shoots Friendly Dog In The Face, Rips Mouth Apart
Post Date: 2015-05-29 09:04:21 by Deckard
Filming Cops by Jean DETROIT A cop shot a cattle dog mix in the face because he said the dog growled and jumped at him. In cop-speak that probably means it was sound asleep and twitching in a characteristic dog dream. Alison Lewis is a local musician whose dog, Millie, often is on the stage with her while she performs. She was at the old Tiger Stadium to do a gig with Millie by her side. She and two friends had to gone to a local field to let their dogs run. Lewis used to live in the neighborhood and took Millie to the field three or four times a week. Several people had been playing a baseball game and were just loading up their equipment as Lewis and her ...
Nevada case is latest to test 'stand your ground' laws
Post Date: 2015-05-25 18:45:08 by cranky
The idea that a person's home is their castle and they have the right to kill trespassers has been widely accepted in the U.S. for more than a century. But that broad legal premise has been put to the test in several states amid cases that stretched the boundaries of "stand your ground" self-defense laws. The latest high-profile case is in Nevada, where a man is on trial on murder charges after opening fire on two trespassers - not in his home but at a vacant rental unit he owns. In neighboring Utah, a man was hailed as a hero after he intervened in a would-be carjacking outside a grocery store, gunning down the suspect. Months earlier, a jury convicted a Montana man who ...
Guy who shot at George Zimmerman recently in mental institution
Post Date: 2015-05-19 21:17:37 by Tooconservative
A little over a week ago George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting. You probably recall the story since it was all over the web. And as with the link I just provided, thats how it was described in headlines across the spectrum. George Zimmerman was involved in a shooting. And why would anyone be surprised? You know what a bad guy he is, right? He was probably just trying to gun down some other helpless citizen. But as it turns out, the story is a bit more complicated than the initial headlines indicated. Local police and one judge have finally gotten to the bottom of things. A police report says a man charged with shooting at George Zimmerman last week had a fixation on ...

Bracken: When The Music Stops – How America’s Cities May Explode In Violence

westernrifleshooters.wordpress.com < /a> Bracken: When The Music Stops How Americas Cities May Explode In Violence From Matt Bracken: In response to recent articles in mainstream military journals discussing the use of the U.S. Army to quell insurrections on American soil, I offer an alternate vision of the future. Instead of a small town in the South as the flash point, picture instead a score of U.S. cities in the thrall of riots greater than those experienced in Los Angeles in 1965 (Watts), multiple cities in 1968 (MLK assassination), and Los Angeles again in 1992 (Rodney King). New Yorkers can imagine the 1977 blackout looting or the 1991 Crown Heights ...

Pew first: Gun rights top gun control in major public opinion shift (62% distrust government)
Post Date: 2015-04-20 18:03:25 by hondo68
Exactly two years after President Obama's bid for gun control following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting died in Congress, a new poll has discovered a huge shift in public opinion to backing Second Amendment gun rights and away from controlling gun ownership. The reason: Americans now believe having a gun is the best way to protect against crime, 63 percent to 30 percent. Pew Research Center found that while support for gun control once reached 66 percent, it has dropped to 46 percent while support for gun rights has jumped 52 percent, the highest ever in the past 25 years. "We are at a moment when most Americans believe crime rates are rising and when most believe ...
Guns in U.S. are ‘ultimate check against government tyranny’: Cruz
Post Date: 2015-04-17 05:56:24 by out damned spot
The right to gun ownership in America is not just about hunting, or protecting property and person, but the ultimate check against government tyranny, argues a fund appeal from Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz, R- Texas. The Cruz fundraising letter echoes arguments made by militia groups, and a far-right demonstration last winter that followed voter passage of an initiative requiring criminal background checks for gun purchasers. The Second Amendment to the Constitution isnt just for protecting hunting rights, and its not only to safeguard your right to target practice, said Cruz, a former Texas solicitor general. It is a ...
