Ted Nugent Criticized From All Sides For Anti-Semitic Facebook Post
Post Date: 2016-02-10 08:27:43 by tooconservative
Aging rock star and NRA Board member Ted Nugent made a controversial Facebook post yesterday which has drawn bipartisan condemnation from both left and right-leaning Jewish groups, and what appears to be a broad-based coalition of gun owners as well. Heres Nugents post. The rhetoric was vintage Nugent, which was more than enough to get the anti-gun left in a furor, but Nugent created real anger among many gun rights supporters as well for his choice of images. Nugent used a photo of a number of Jewish gun control supporters, where each individual photo was overlaid with an Israeli flag, with anti-Israeli or anti-Jewish conspiracy claims posted with some of the photos. The ...
People Have A 'Fundamental Right' To Own Assault Weapons, Court Rules [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2016-02-05 10:00:07 by misterwhite
In a major victory for gun rights advocates, a federal appeals court on Thursday sided with a broad coalition of gun owners, businesses and organizations that challenged the constitutionality of a Maryland ban on assault weapons and other laws aimed at curbing gun violence. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the state's prohibition on what the court called "the vast majority of semi-automatic rifles commonly kept by several million American citizens" amounted to a violation of their rights under the Constitution. "In our view, Maryland law implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment -- the right of law-abiding ...
New 3D-printed 9mm semi-automatic pistol debuts
Post Date: 2016-02-04 20:57:29 by tooconservative
Thought 3D-printed guns had to be made of plastic? Think againSolid Concepts debuts a 3D-printed, fully metal version of the M1911 handgun. On Sunday, a West Virginia carpenter who goes by the name "Derwood" released a new video (above) of his "Shuty-MP1" firearm, a small semi-automatic 9mm weapon that is almost entirely 3D-printed with inexpensive PLA plastic. The only parts of the gun that are metal are the steel barrel and springs. Derwood's gun illustrates the evolution of 3D-printed firearms, which have rapidly evolved in nearly three years since the debut of the simple Liberator and the printed AR-15 lower receiver. "This gun has been a work in ...

Post Date: 2016-01-22 05:29:04 by no gnu taxes
A gun store in Jackson, Mississippi has a new sign in the window announcing store policy is no gun sales to Terrorists or Democrats. The sign contains an explanation that both groups were banned because its too hard to tell the difference between them. According to WVLT, the sign announcing no sales for Terrorists or Democrats at Downrange Sporting Goods sits beside another sign that says, If you voted for Kenneth Stokes or Barack Obama youre too stupid to own a gun. Please find another dealer. Stokes is the Mississippi councilman who called on residents in Jackson to throw rocks at police cars to stop high speed chases in the ...

El Chapo Drug Kingpin Had a Rifle From Federal Fast & Furious Program The Fast and Furious gun-smuggling scandal is one of those stories that the government and the media declared over . . . that wasnt, or isnt, actually over. Heres a nice example: A .50-caliber rifle found at Joaquin El Chapo Guzmans hideout in Mexico was funneled through the gun-smuggling investigation known as Fast and Furious, sources confirmed Tuesday to Fox News. A .50-caliber is a massive rifle that can stop a car, or as it was intended, take down a helicopter. After the raid on Jan. 8 in the city of Los Mochis that killed five of his men and wounded one ...

Justin Amash: Lets Close Loophole That Lets U.S. Sell Guns to Syrian Rebels Libertarian Congressman responds to President Obama's executive order on guns. By Robby Soave January 07, 2016 "Information Clearing House" - "Reason"- While numerous skeptics of the idea that stronger gun control would meaningfully curb mass shootings or reduce murders have assailed President Obama's proposed executive action on guns as foolhardy, Rep. Justin Amash formulated a different criticism of the plan. He tweeted: So, the guy who sells guns from our government to radical Syrian rebels lectures law-abiding Americans about selling guns to each other. Justin Amash ...
On Gun Control, Obama Looks like Reagan and Bush
Post Date: 2016-01-06 14:03:51 by hondo68
The Obama Administration is planning new gun restrictions to be implemented by executive order. Politico reports: According to gun industry insiders and others familiar with the proposals, the changes include requiring an expanded number of small-scale gun sellers to be licensed and therefore conduct background checks whenever selling a weapon. This wouldnt close the so-called gun show loophole, though it has the potential to narrow it.In response, the Conservative media has expressed the expected outrage, with Donald Trump declaring that "pretty soon, you wont be able to get guns." With these new measures, however, Obama isn't ...
Long Before Militia in Oregon, Eric Holder Was in “Armed Standoff” At Columbia ROTC Building
Post Date: 2016-01-06 10:42:30 by Deckard
If the standoff in Oregon had taken place last year, he would have been the man in charge of the federal response across every law enforcement agency, including the FBI, ATF and U.S. Marshals. Though Loretta Lynch has now succeeded him as Attorney General, Eric Holder led the nations law enforcement response during most of the Obama Administration. And he, too, was once involved in an armed standoff. In sharp contrast to his role as Attorney General, Eric Holder, as a young black radical at Columbia, was one of those who were engaged in an armed standoff with authorities over a territorial dispute. Today, the thinking on the left is different, but during ...
Oregon activists picked the wrong battle, militia leaders say
Post Date: 2016-01-05 09:07:13 by Willie Green
EUGENE, Jan 5 Self-styled militia members who seized federal property in rural Oregon in an effort to galvanize opposition to the US government appear to have made a tactical error - potential allies say they picked the wrong battle. As armed anti-government activists occupied a snowy wildlife refuge for a third day to call attention to a land-use dispute, militia leaders from similar groups across the country criticized the seizure of federal land and a building. The protesters have said they aim to restore and defend the Constitution to protect the rights of ranchers and ignite a national debate about states rights and federal land-use policy they hope could ...

Those Jamokes In Oregon Aren't Terrorists, They're Jamokes [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2016-01-04 17:10:19 by Willie Green
The American political lexicon has an appropriate word for the armed men conspicuously loitering in part of Oregons Malheur National Wildlife Refuge instead of going home. It is not terrorist or militia or occupation or revolution or movement or front or army or resistance. The word is jamoke. Get a load of these sad jamokes! is the thing you say about them. Maybe when they are done annexing this remote administrative offices supply of free park maps and permit application forms, they will liberate rural Oregons port-a-johns next. Some of the port-a-johns are heavily fortified with locking doors and hand sanitizer pumps. Surely this will call for siege ...
Trump: Hillary Clinton Should Disarm Her Bodyguards If She Really Believes ‘Guns Don’t Keep You Safe’
Post Date: 2016-01-03 13:31:15 by cranky
On January 3 Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump used a Facebook post to call out Hillary Clintons hypocrisy in telling the American people that guns dont keep you safe while simultaneously surrounding herself with heavily armed bodyguards. On December 19 Breitbart News reported that Clinton reacted to the surge in gun sales that followed the San Bernardino terror attack by saying, Guns, in and of themselves
will not make Americans safer. She then listed the number of gun-related deaths each year in a way that appeared to suggest guns actually make America less safe. On January 3 Trump responded with: Hillary said that guns ...
Do Gun Bans Reduce Violent Crime? Ask the Aussies and Brits

Do Gun Bans Reduce Violent Crime? Ask the Aussies and Brits BY GLEN TSCHIRGI 3 years, 5 months ago (H/T Instapundit) Nothing original to add here, but this posting I picked up from Instapundit is well worth passing along, particularly in light of the typical, knee-jerk, Statist reactions to the horrific Aurora CO shootings: Actually, if the Australian Bureau of Criminology can be believed, Americans would be insane to concern themselves with what non-Americans think about American gun rights. In 2002 five years after enacting its gun ban the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In ...
Politico: Executive Gun Control Will Force Background Checks on Private Sellers
Post Date: 2016-01-01 19:06:35 by Stoner
Politico reports that President Obamas upcoming executive gun control will force a number of private gun sellers to get their Federal Firearms License (FFL) and perform background checks on every gun sold. This is will not do away with the nonexistent gun show loophole, but it will further limit Americans freedom to sell guns to their neighbors or family members without a background checkwhich is ultimately what Democrats want to accomplish anyway. According to Politico, Obama will tighten the definition of what it means to be engaged in the business of firearms sales. Currently, those who sell firearms with the principal ...
Police May Confiscate Guns without Notice to Owner Starting January 1 [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-12-29 20:33:17 by Stoner
Beginning January 1, police in California may confiscate firearms from gun owners thought to be a danger to themselves or others without giving the owner any notice. This is the result of the implementation of gun violence restraining orders (GVROs), which go into effect New Years Day. According to KPCC, GVROs could be issued without prior knowledge of the person. In other words, a judge could issue the order without ever hearing from the person in question, if there are reasonable grounds to believe the person is a threat based on accounts from the family and police. And since the order can be issued without the gun owner even being present to defend him or ...

Douglas County, GA Bobby Daniels was a peace officer by trade a private security guard employed at CNNs headquarters in Atlanta. When he learned that his emotionally troubled 25-year-old son Bias had suffered a breakdown and was holding a fellow security guard at gunpoint in a mobile home part in Douglasville, Bobby raced to the scene. Using the skills of persuasion and patient de-escalation upon which a private peace officer must rely, Bobby persuaded his son to relinquish his handgun and place it on the hood of a car.Just seconds later, Daniels was fatally shot not by his mentally ill son, but by the sheriffs deputies who had arrived on the scene.In ...
The question I asked before any play date
Post Date: 2015-12-24 15:30:07 by misterwhite
It was the most awkward and divisive of questions that I would ask of other parents, usually new acquaintances, but also of old friends. Wed be on the phone, discussing our young children, laughing, and the subject of play dates would come up. The other mom might say, Can Chloe come over here tomorrow to play with Maddie? I would ask, Do you keep guns in your house? Always it would lead to the most illuminating of answers, whether yes or no. If the response was negative, the parent would answer immediately, following up with something like, No, never. We dont believe in having firearms. In the other cases, there would always be a pause ...
Guns and Vultures
Post Date: 2015-12-21 20:53:36 by Stoner
So last night my feed was filled with posts about ban all guns, damn the NRA, hateful Christians, Republican murderers, evil Tea Party, white men are the real killers. Were used to that. Any time theres another mass murder, almost always somewhere with strict gun control, usually in a Gun Free Zone, the buzzards swoop in. The events were still in play and the president and the leading democrat candidates had already called for more gun control. People who dont know much about the topic demand that something be done, even though all the usual proposals would actually make the problem worse, rather than better. But it doesnt matter. They want what they want, and ...
Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Executive Order or Not, ‘I’m Not Surrendering the Guns’
Post Date: 2015-12-19 19:56:54 by cranky
On December 18, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio referenced President Obamas pending executive action on gun control and said executive order or not, guns will not be surrendered. Arpaio talked with Breitbart News about a number of gun-related issues and indicated that an ongoing problem is that guns and gun control have become part of the political situation. As a result, Democrats react to the criminal misuse of guns by grandstanding to punish law-abiding citizens with gun control. The same thing happens after a terror attack, such as the one that took place in San Bernardino on December 2. Since then, Democrats have pushed to add the no-fly list to background checks, ...

I took down my Rebel flag (which you can't buy on e-bay any more) and peeled the NRA sticker off the front door. I disconnected my home alarm system and quit the candy-ass Neighborhood Watch. I bought two Pakistani flags and put one at each corner of the front yard. Then I purchased the black flag of ISIS (which you can buy on e-bay) and put it in the center of the yard. Now the local police, sheriff, FBI, CIA, NSA, Homeland Security, Secret Service and other agencies are all watching the house 24/7. I've never felt safer and I'm saving $69.95 a month.
Judge Dismisses Denver D.A.'s Unconstitutional Jury Tampering Charges

Jacob Sullum Last August, Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey charged two local activists, Mark Iannicelli and Eric Brandt, with seven felonies each for passing out jury nullification pamphlets at the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse. Morrissey continued to pursue those charges even after conceding that such activity is protected by the First Amendment. When I asked Lynn Kimbrough, Morrissey's public information officer, what Iannicelli and Brandt had done that crossed the line from constitutionally protected speech to ...
The Rifles Of The Next Civil War
Post Date: 2015-12-16 01:04:03 by tooconservative
Two days ago I wrote a post gaming out the gun control fantasies being called for by the left-leaning mainstream media. I basically allowed for a scenario where President Obama made executive orders based upon two recent calls by New York-based media outlets, one following through on the Daily News desire to brand all National Rifle Association members as terrorists, and the other on the Times call to make common firearms illegal. In my scenario, I imagined a very brief, lenient, and indeed hopeful turn of events where Congress, most state governors, law enforcement officers, the military, and even Vice President Biden all honored their oaths to defend the Constitution, not any particular ...
