Terrifying. Reloading. Disarmed! Politicians.

Gawker (website of some sort) wets itself over ..

THE MOST TERRIFYING thing on the internet.

Hello!! Is an inanimate object! Does nothing without a ‘USER” meaning a human being to operate it!!

Good grief…Some people need to grow up and deal with the real world.

A tool people a piece of metal, plastic, wood and it scares you?

Reloading myths.

Six of them.

Separating old wives tales from explosive truth

Sometimes the amount of B.S. floating around reloading circles is astonishing.  For instance, I’ve come to realize that I will most likely not die a sudden death of lead poisoning from handling cast bullets.  Just as shooters reload for as many reasons as there are types of reloading devices, some myths are true and others are old wives (or old reloaders) tales. No matter.  Just ensure that safety always takes priority at the loading bench.  Load often, use common sense, and enjoy a great hobby that makes better, more attentive shooters of us all.

Well this would make some sense..

DISARMING AMERICA’S HEROES:

Feds say no to veterans having guns and ammo.

Well if you think about it. Makes sense as why arm those whom you trained and have experienced combat. Wouldn’t want them to use those skills against the Government when it goes for total control and take over of all things American and Free…

Truth from Wild Bill.

Disorganized Conservatives..Herding cats…Yep..

Problem being the Dhimmwits blindly follow whomever offers them the most promises of bullshit.

The Repuplikans or Conservatives tend to think for themselves and have independent streaks and do not like anyone telling them what to do..

So tough to organize.

___

Politicians…Bleh..

This is Rep. Alice Hausman (DFL 66A, Roseville)(Minnesota)
“Author” of:
HF 241 Gun ban, registration confiscation (the bill defines common use handgun revolvers as “assault weapons“)
HF 242 Standard capacity magazine ban, 10 rounds
HF 243 Standard capacity magazine ban, 7 rounds

Didn’t write the bills, didn’t present the bills (Heather Martens, paid anti-gun lobbyist from Protect MN presented the bills. Highly irregular.) And Hausman couldn’t be bothered to attend the public hearings on these bills despite the fact that Minnesotans came from all over the state to testify.
Gross dereliction of duty.

THANK YOU for fighting for your gun rights — here’s what’s next

gocra_letterhead_email.png

Due to an email glitch, some people didn’t get this message yesterday, so we apologize if you get this twice. Please note that we’ve updated the probable Senate hearing date next week to THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21.

YOU FILLED THE CAPITOL
Gun rights activists — that’s you! — made a fantastic showing at last week’s gun control hearings at the Minnesota House. At the hearings, a dozen bills were introduced and debated. Eleven of them would restrict our right to keep and bear arms.

For an overview of all of these bills and what they mean, visit our bill reference page at http://www.gocra.org/news/reference/2013-firearms-bills/

But thanks to your turnout, and your flooding the legislature with calls and emails, there are already cracks forming in the support for these attacks on the Second Amendment:

YOU MADE THEM THINK TWICE!
Rep. Debra Hilstrom
Committee member Debra Hilstrom (DFL – Brooklyn Center), apparently sent hundreds of people this email over the weekend:

Thank you for contacting me regarding bills introduced regarding guns. I do not support any bans or the proposal for additional background checks.
Thank you
Debra
Sent from my iPad

We appreciate Rep. Hilstrom’s pro-civil-rights approach!

Rep. Alice Hausman
Representative Alice Hausman (DFL – Roseville), the author of the “assault weapon” and magazine ban bills, was not even in the room to present “her” bills to the committee. She left it to a gun control lobbyist, paid by out-of-state foundation funds, to pitch the proposals. Even the Star Tribune took note of this highly irregular activity.

Hausman later admitted to a reporter from the liberal web site MinnPost.com that she “doesn’t really know anything about guns” and “just sorta signed up.”

LET’S CLOSE THE DEAL – ACTION ITEMS
These bills stand a good chance of being shot down in committee. You can make that happen:

1) CALL and EMAIL Representative Alice Hausman and (politely) demand that she withdraw the bills that she didn’t even present.
651-296-3824
rep.alice.hausman@house.mn

Rep. John Ward

2) CALL and EMAIL Representative John Ward, thank him for his past support of your gun rights, and encourage him to stand by his values, maintain his GOCRA A-rating, and vote against these infringements.
651-296-4333
rep.john.ward@house.mn

Representative Shannon Savick
3) CALL and EMAIL Representative Shannon Savick, remind her that her district is filled with hunters, sportsmen and Second Amendment supporters, and ask her to vote against these rights-infringing bills.
651-296-8216
rep.shannon.savick@house.mn

4) CALL and EMAIL your OWN state representative and senator and tell them not to support these infringements. If their info isn’t at the bottom of this email, please update your address using the link below! We need it to get you information specific to your area.

WHAT’S NEXT?

The Minnesota Senate will have their own gun bill hearings starting, probably, next Thursday afternoon. If you can join us at the capitol to stand up for your rights, we need you there. We’ll send you more details as soon as we have them.

Please forward this email to gun owners and civil rights supporters, and ask them to sign up at http://www.gocra.org/join.html

What Do Those Gun Grabbers in Minnesota’s House of Representatives Do…

For ‘real’ work?
Stolen here..

After my post on gun control legislation in Minnesota and its impact on jobs in that state, I started looking at the legislators who were sponsoring this legislation. Other than the fact that they were all Democrats, or as they are called in Minnesota – Democrat-Farmer-Labor, they had another similarity. They had made their careers, for the most part, in the public sector. Some, like Rep. Alice Hausman and Rep. Phyllis Kahn, even listed their occupation as “Legislator”. Look at the list below of the sponsors of HF 241 which is Minnesota’s version of an assault weapons (sic) ban.

Rep. Alice Hausman (DFL-St. Paul) Legislator/fmr Teacher
Rep. Frank Horstein (DFL-Minneapolis) Community Organizer
Rep. Erik Simonson (DFL-Duluth) Asst Fire Chief
Rep. Jim Davnie (DFL-Minneapolis) Financial Educator
Rep. Linda Slocum (DFL-Richfield) Teacher
Rep. Rena Moran (DFL-St. Paul) Parent Leader Coord.
Rep. Raymond Dehn (DFL-Minneapolis) Sustainability Consultant
Rep. JoAnn Ward (DFL-Woodbury) Retired Teacher
Rep. Phyllis Kahn (DFL-Minneapolis) Legislator/University Research Assoc.

This made me wonder if the sponsors of gun control legislation in other states shared the similar characteristics of being primary from the public sector. With hearings on gun control legislation in Colorado and New Jersey scheduled for this week, I looked at those two states in particular.
