Bill Would Force Calif. Gun Owners To Buy Insurance February 5, 2013 3:09 PM SACRAMENTO (AP) Democratic lawmakers proposed legislation Tuesday that would require California gun owners to buy liability insurance to cover damages or injuries caused by their weapons. Similar bills have been introduced in other states after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. They include Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and New York. I was moved, like many others, being the father of two young children, by the Sandy Hook incident and looking for constructive ways to manage gun violence here in California as well as the rest of the country, said Assemblyman Philip Ting ...

What the Judiciary Committee Should Ask Wayne LaPierre By Frank Smyth, January 29, 2013 On Wednesday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on gun violence featuring testimony from the NRA's Wayne LaPierre, as well as Mark Kelly, the husband of former Representative Gabrielle Giffords, Democrat of Arizona, who was shot in the head while holding a public meeting in her district two years ago. Members of the Judiciary Committee should take the opportunity to press LaPierre on whether his organization truly represents the views of most American gun owners--and on what, specifically those views are. While the NRA boasts a 4 million strong membership, it has a secretive and ...

Second Amendment Hypocrites

A recent poll conducted by the National Association of Chiefs of Police indicated that almost 64 percent of police commanders and sheriffs favor a law allowing private citizens to carry concealed firearms for protection. Almost 73 percent said that citizens should not be restricted from purchasing more than one weapon, and 96 percent say they believe criminals obtain firearms from illegal sources. Unfortunately most states - especially those called Blue States due to their Liberal-leanings - continue to prohibit private citizens from carrying concealed handguns. At the same time, there are outspoken opponents of gun ownership, such as Senators Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Diane Feinstein ...

Universal background checks would strip 18-20 year olds of handgun rights
Post Date: 2013-02-04 09:27:11 by A K A Stone
Lost amidst the clamor for universal back ground checks are a lot of important details. One of those details, besides the issues of who will pay for universal background checks, and how will such checks be precluded from turning into a registration scheme, is the fact that simply making firearm background checks universal would have to effect of denying the right of 18-20 year olds to own a handgun, even in their home. In 2008 the US Supreme Court held in District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment guarantee[s] the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation. At issue in Heller was the District of Columbias statute which ...

Men tote assault rifles at Obama event - Remind usurper who's boss
Post Date: 2013-02-03 14:14:46 by hondo68
At least two men were spotted carrying assault rifles outside Obama's speech.(CNN) At least two Arizona men brought assault rifles to President Obamas speech Monday to the annual Veterans of Foreign Wars convention in Phoenix. CNNs Ed Henry reported that one of the men was carrying an AR-15 assault rifle and shouted anti-Obama slogans. The men remained outside the convention center where the president was speaking. Henry said U.S. Secret Service and local police were "very much aware" of the situation and were paying close attention to the men. However, Arizona is an open-carry state, meaning it's legal to carry firearms in public as long as they are ...

Newtown Sides with NRA: Votes for Armed Guards In Schools

Newtown Sides with NRA: Votes for Armed Guards In Schools When the rubber hits the road, when the stark and very real choice is either empty political posturing with useless gun control laws or doing something practical to protect your children, the only people laughing at the NRA are a media determined to protect anything and everything involving Barack Obama. Today the Newtown Board of Education made the only choice any parent can: It voted to put armed guards in its schools: The vote, for now, only represents a request it still needs to clear budget and logistical boundaries since the guards would come from the town's police resources as opposed to the school board itself. ...
The Folly of Gun Control
Post Date: 2013-02-01 17:47:02 by ericbl
Im getting really tired of all of this blather about banning so-called "assault weapons". First, there is no such gun classification as an "assault weapon". The term "assault weapon" is a political term, concocted by the Democrats in the 1990's for the purposes of scaring uninformed people. Second, banning things doesn't work. Fully automatic weapons have been banned in the U.S. since the 1920's, yet there are plenty of gang members and mobsters who have them. The U.S. government has spent countless billions of dollars in the U.S., Mexico and Columbia trying to eradicate illicit drugs, yet there is more cocaine and marijuana in the country ...

Sandy Hook: Is The Lone Gunman A Lie To Manipulate The Public? There is a great deal of noise surrounding the Sandy Hook massacre. Ive noticed that when I search on twitter I see people making confident declarations about what happened that were based on earlier media reports of the story that afterward got changed. I had always thought that the internet helps us learn things, but in this case, older versions of events that have been discarded are still alive and well in the search engines. There are, additionally, some people asserting that the Sandy Hook massacre is some kind of hoax involving actors or even green screen cgi footage. I dont find any of this ...

He and Charlton Heston screwed to pooch in '68 by endorsing legislation mandating, getting the governments permission to have a gun.

A Columbus, Ohio, concealed carrier saved himself and his two-month-old son, and ended an alleged crime spree when he shot an armed robber Jan. 7. According to Columbus Ohio Police, Kelby Smith parked his car at his brothers house on the west side of the city around 9 p.m. and while he was getting his two month old out from the backseat, a man approached him, put a gun to his head and demanded money. Smith set his son, who was in a car seat, down and then knelt down to shield the child from the gunman. He then handed over what money he had in his pockets: $40. All of this seems depressingly typical. But theres a twist. As the gunman began to leave, he turned and trained the ...

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. has called on residents to arm themselves against criminals. (Gary Porter / Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) David A. Clarke Jr. has a message for residents in his jurisdiction: You can't rely on him anymore. You need to arm yourself.

Here's the full transcript: "I'm Sheriff David Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: your safety. It's no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game. But are you ready?

Gun Ownership: American Exceptionalism
Post Date: 2013-01-28 17:36:26 by Capitalist Eric
In response to an attempt by a handful of liberal politicians in Congress to enact laws against the ownership of assault weapons, meaning semi-automatic AR-15's, we are seeing the most remarkable American resistance movement that I can recall in my lifetime. Websites that run articles in favor of gun ownership and against gun control find that these articles get a high number of hits. Therefore, the sites run even more articles on the same topic. This is only sensible. You give the customers what they want. The rush to buy ammunition and anything connected with assault rifles is like nothing I have ever seen. In the state of Georgia, one pro-gun group is giving away in a raffle a ...

In the ongoing fevered debate over gun control legislation, registration of firearms is a key flashpoint. Progressives insist that nothing could be more reasonable and benign than simply requiring every firearm and firearm owner to be registered with some government entity. Thus, they argue, bad guys could be screened out and guns used in crimes could be traced to help catch the criminals. They denounce as paranoid, delusional nonsense the concerns of gun owners that registration would lead to eventual confiscation. In a Fact Check at Time.com intended to dismiss The Gun Registry Red Herring, Michael Scherer notes that President Obamas Now ...

What purpose do any of our freedoms serve if we have no means to protect them? Are we not only as strong as our own weakest link? Surely the people are strong when united, but when the fist of angered men crashes down with might and power, what is our powerless response? Thomas Jefferson was an extraordinarily insightful man as a founding father, and is attributed to the saying A government big enough to give you everything you want, is a government big enough to take away everything that you have. It is important to remember the fallacy of this statement, however. The government of the United States does not grant rights, and it does not allocate freedom. Rather, the ...

Boycott Amazon dot Com. They just gave the police on Mercer Island near Seattle $35,000 to set up a Gun Buy Back program. I have already notified them to cancel my account because I don't do business with companies that work hard and spend money to try to destroy my Constitutional RIGHTS,and I damn sure don't spend my money with them so they can use the profit I provide them to spend to work against me.

Obama admits he goes out shooting “all the time”

Gun Control Advocates Need to Listen to Gun Owners, Obama Says WASHINGTON President Obama said that he and his guests go skeet shooting at Camp David all the time and that gun control advocates need to do a little more listening to understand why so many Americans are wary of government limits on firearms. In an interview released Sunday morning, Mr. Obama acknowledged that getting his package of gun proposals through Congress could be tough, and he expressed empathy for the strong sentiments of gun owners. Like Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who has mentioned that he owns two shotguns, Mr. Obama tried to associate himself with those who enjoy firing ...
Gun Owners Refuse to Register Under New York Law
Post Date: 2013-01-25 15:22:35 by hondo68
After Democrats in New York rammed a sweeping assault on the right to keep and bear arms through the legislature that failed to exempt police officers from the draconian restrictions, gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history. According to news reports, gun rights activists are urging everyone to defy far-left Governor Andrew Cuomos new registration mandate while daring authorities to come and take it. Analysts say the legislation, passed in a frenzy last week in the wake of the Newtown shooting, represents the most brazen infringement on the right to keep and bear arms anywhere ...
The Second Amendment is Dead, Long Live the Right to Bear Arms

45 human beings legally disarmed the state of New York under the leadership of the Governor Cuomo. A state with a population of 19 million people has been disarmed in a significant fashion for those foolish or sheepish enough to comply with the law. The country is bombarded with media propaganda on a continuous basis on the moral high ground and fairness of democratic processes. In one fell swoop, the rulers of the tax jurisdiction of New York have proven not only the folly and charade that is representative democracy but abridged the most fundamental right of all the right to self-defense. Ironically, the legislators had accidentally disarmed the only ones who should be subject to ...
