Post Date: 2012-04-02 20:07:04 by hondo68
Former president Bill Clinton has joined the Obama administration in exploiting the Taryvon Martin case in what is now obviously a concerted effort to roll back the Second Amendment. Bill Clinton signs Brady bill on November 30, 1993. James Brady looks on. Clinton told ABC News that Stand Your Ground Laws the right of a person to defend himself with deadly force when there is reasonable belief of a threat should be struck down.

Are we really all that much safer taking the chance that this kind of thing could happen over and over and over again? In ...
More Killings Called Self-Defense
Post Date: 2012-03-31 22:01:51 by lucysmom
At a time when the overall U.S. homicide rate is declining, more civilians are killing each other and claiming self-defensea trend that is most pronounced in states with new "stand your ground" laws. These laws, which grant people more leeway to attack and even kill someone who is threatening them, are attracting close scrutiny following February's controversial killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida by a neighborhood watchman. Florida has one of the broadest self-defense laws of the 25 states with some version of a "stand your ground" principle. So-called justifiable homicides nearly doubled from 2000 to 2010, the most ...

Post Date: 2012-03-26 17:32:31 by hondo68
Notorious gun-grabber Sen. Charles Schumer is exploiting the publicity surrounding the Trayvon Martin case to call for the feds to outlaw Stand Your Ground self-defense laws around the country. Schumer is an influential Democrat who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Schumer wants to the Justice Department to expand an investigation into the controversial law. More than thirty states have some form of the Castle Doctrine or the Stand Your Ground law on the books. The Castle Doctrine has its roots in English common law under the dictum that an Englishmans home is his castle and the belief that deadly force may be used when a home is invaded. I am ...

Update: House Speaker Kraig Paulsen met with reporters at about 3 p.m. to say he had spoken by phone with Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, but received no word as to where the Democrats were or when they would return to the Capitol. Republicans will remain at ease in the House chambers for the time being, Paulsen said, in hopes that the Democrats will return yet today. The right thing for them to do is to get back here and do the work that Iowans sent us here to do, he said. Well be patient a little bit longer and see if they can make a decision here and give me something more definitive to work with. Paulsen said that McCarthy suggested during the ...
New Government Initiative Would Circumvent Second Amendment By Targeting Ammunition Not Guns
Post Date: 2012-02-23 20:21:00 by hondo68
With over 10 million guns sold in the United States in 2011, violent crime rising significantly as the economic crisis worsens, and self defense killings sky rocketing, its becoming increasingly unpopular for politicians to call for restrictions on firearms. If anything, even though government officials in states like Illinois and New Jersey are attempting to outlaw guns completely, the public outcry has been deafening, with each attempt met by protests and solidarity from individual rights and gun advocates all over the country. Its clear that the majority of Americans support their inherent right to bear arms. But, even though the strategy of attacking our second Amendment is ...

Might Barack Obama Be The Greatest Gun Salesman in America? Posted on February 21, 2012 at 6:12pm by Christopher Santarelli Gun manufacturers would likely not be the first to come to mind when considering industries who have benefited the most during President Obamas first term, but a study from Ammo.net finds that firearm sales and concealed handgun permit applications are at all-time highs since the 2008 election. Just to show a few statistics illustrating what those in the industry call the Obama effect: Rugers firearm sales have gone from $117 million to $232 million, an increase of 98% Winchesters sales of ammunition have gone ...
New Jersey bill aims to ban all handgun, some rifle ammo
Post Date: 2012-01-29 12:55:15 by hondo68
In an end-run around an all out gun ban, the New Jersey Assembly Law & Public Safety Committee is set to consider legislation that would ban ammunition under the auspices of protecting police. The language seemingly targets the already prohibited armor piercing ammunition but would encompass any ammo that is deemed to pose a threat to the safety and well being of law enforcement. Ammoland is reporting that Common hunting, target, and self-defense ammunition would be subject to ban, along with BBs, airgun pellets, and non-metallic ammunition like plastic airsoft pellets. The NRA concurs with Ammoland, reporting that while the language of the bill ...

video platformvideo managementvideo solutionsvideo player A young Oklahoma mother shot and killed an intruder to protect her 3-month-old baby on New Year's Eve, less than a week after the baby's father died of cancer. Sarah McKinley says that a week earlier a man named Justin Martin dropped by on the day of her husband's funeral, claiming that he was a neighbor who wanted to say hello. The 18-year-old Oklahoma City area woman did not let him into her home that day. On New Year's Eve Martin returned with another man, Dustin Stewart, and this time was armed with a 12-inch hunting knife. The two soon began trying to break into McKinley's home.

Guns Save People, Again

Guns Save People, Again A 19-year-old thug tried to rob a 23-year-old man in the stairwell of his apartment building in Philadelphia. He walked up to the man, pistol-whipped him, and shot him in the leg. He met some difficulties, though. The mother of the victim heard the commotion from her apartment upstairs, grabbed her legally owned gun, got out and shot the robber. He died immediately, with a wound in his chest. Robbers we will have, always. Armed they will be, always. Whether laws limit gun ownership or not, criminals are criminals exactly because they dont care for the laws. This one is interesting, though. It happens in an apartment building. Nothing wrong with apartment ...
For womb the bell tolls

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 ...

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

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 ...

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 ...
