“In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate — look to his character.”
–Noah Webster, Letters to a Young Gentleman Commencing His Education, 1789
Apparently no one did that with current occupants in Washington!!
Is the only thing the DFL Party knows in this State! I swear they use whatever methods they can to get what they want. Taxes, fees, licenses, just screwing of Minnesotans..
Gun Violence Is Not Always A Bad Thing
For the left, guns are worthless. If guns were never created, gun violence and gun death would not occur. But it’s naive to believe that murder and mayhem would still not occur. Cain killed Able and he did it without a gun. Genesis 4 tells us that Cain and Abel were in the field and Cain rose up…
And having sky high gas prices in Minnesota, with little or no comment from our worthless politicians may dampen this enthusiasm to go fishing or at least head up north!!
Anglers spend $2.4 billion in Minnesota, according to new report
And that does a hell of a lot more then those Godless Communists in St Paul!!
But hey! Those tree huggers contribute so much to umm…to…umm their favorite politicians!!
We need to start a politician buyback program!!
The Force fails Obama’s minions!!
What? The other half to drunk on Buck Ofama‘s Bullshit?
Hillary.. Lying, conniving bitch!!
No we are not…Just really pissed off!!! Our eyes are open!
Slimy does not quite cover it!! Chicago thug Buck Ofama is beyond slimy!!
Zombie gun control bill? Not on our watch!
An update from the capitol:
Senator Ron Latz (DFL-St. Louis Park) announced last night that he intended to resurrect a gun bill this morning, after the leadership had announced that there would be no gun bills heard this year.
We were able to mobilize a quick reaction from our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/gocra), and we worked this morning with Latz and other legislators to ensure that only good language got through the House finance committee.
We are at the Capitol this afternoon, keeping an eye on things and making sure nothing bad gets added in conference committee.
The streamlined bill contains some genuinely positive improvements to the NICS system, which should help ensure that prohibited people are actually entered into the national system — and removed when their prohibitions are over.
The fact that the Sen. Latz and the committee voted only for a bill that met with GOCRA approval is a testament to the influence that YOU have at the legislature. Your voices, emails, calls (and maroon shirts!) reminded our civil servants who they work for!

“What is your preferred method for prying them (guns) from my cold dead hands?” “You’re probably not going to take my guns…..because I have guns” -Steven Colbert
Steven Colbert discussing gun control with Congresswoman Donna Edwards on the TV. Excellent.
It turns out that I’m watching a rerun which means you can see the clip here.
But the anti freedom, anti gun crowd said the streets would run red with blood? All those crazy taxpaying citizens with guns would lead to wild west shootouts and killins’ they said!! How can this be!!
After scandal, after scandal….Geeeshh…Buck Ofama and his Chicago Gangland politics continue!!
Buck Ofama’s BFF Whore…And all around PR man, no journalism to be found here!!!
Enemies list? Isn’t that something Gang Lords, Despots and Dictators have? Oh wait! We are talking about Buck Ofama!
Shocked? This murdering scumbag has no morals and obviously no clue that ‘babies’ are Human beings, living and breathing before he slaughtered them..
Colorado….No reason what so ever to visit there anymore…
In close coordination with Planned Parenthood, Democrat lawmakers have repealed the Colorado criminal abortion statutes which is the premise of the newly passed House Bill 1154 – prohibiting criminal prosecution of abortionists like Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell – making it legal in Colorado to kill a child, regardless of the circumstances surrounding his/her birth.
Wild Bill Justice..
The NRA Convention from the Women’s Point of View
Lisa is married to a long time NRA member and was familiar with the organization prior to becoming married. She states that her father – tragically – committed suicide with a rifle so she was not personally a fan of guns. That all changed when she began doing her own research on the actual facts…
The International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR) announces that Brazilian gun rights group Movimento Viva Brasil has joined the international coalition of 25 groups in 16 different countries dedicated to the preservation and defense of civilian firearms rights.
What happens when you try to tell the truth in America, with Buck Ofama in charge!!!
Buck Ofama…Effing waste of a pResident…One hell of a despot!!!
More about the Buck Ofama lying Bastards that killed the Men in Benghazi!
Oh hell yes!! Illegals are…Illegal!!! What do you not understand about that?
Should be done everywhere..
So please tell me what the hell is the difference between this
What is the difference???
And this is not murder?
Subject: Senate Gun Control Bill
Read this very carefully….
The “most popular” part of the proposed Senate gun control bill (background checks) sounds like a good idea at first but is more restrictive than anyone anticipated and will have significant unintended consequences.
There is a huge push to get it through Congress before the public has a chance to consider its contents.
Common activities that we take for granted will become federal crimes. These are not irresponsible exaggerations. Please take a moment to review the requirements of the bill.
Here are a few examples of the restrictions in the bill:
Loaning your buddy a shotgun for a duck hunting trip will be considered a transfer. If the following requirements are not met, YOU HAVE BOTH COMMITTED A FEDERAL CRIME.
1. He must have already purchased his hunting license
2. Season is already open (and will not close before he returns it)
3. He cannot travel with the firearm through a county where season is not yet open or any area where hunting is prohibited and certainly not across a state line.
He CANNOT stop by your house on the day before season opens, pick up the shot gun, go to the sporting goods store to buy a license and shells then drive out to the hunting lease. In this scenario, YOU BOTH WOULD HAVE COMMITTED MULTIPLE FEDERAL CRIMES, YOUR WEAPONS WILL BE FORFEITED AND YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR RIGHT TO BUY OR OWN A FIREARM.
It appears that only you may relocate your weapons. If your weapon leaves your home without you, the new legislation considers it a transfer of possession. ALL transfers require going through a firearms dealer, paying the transfer fee and a background check for the transferee.
Putting the weapon, even temporarily in someone else’s possession, requires a transfer through a dealer. There is no exception for putting them in a friend’s truck while moving to your new house or packing them unloaded, locked in a gunsafe into a moving truck.
Any scenario in which your weapon leaves your home without you is considered a transfer. Failure to properly transfer the weapon is a federal crime which can result in a prison term AND WILL RESULT IN THE FORFEITURE OF YOUR WEAPON.
In the scenario above, your buddy’s truck was used to commit a federal crime and WILL BE CONFISCATED just like with current Fish and Game violations.
Infractions as above which involve 2 guns of any type are considered weapons trafficking. You will be prosecuted under the same federal laws as a terrorist arms dealer.
Any of the infractions above (or hundreds of other routine scenarios) may result in federal charges, confiscation of ALL your weapons and being prohibited, like all felons, from ever owning a weapon again.
Please read the text of the bill yourself. Most of it is boring legalese but the sections on transfers and trafficking are critical.
Take a minute to think about all the routine activities like those above that will make you a federal criminal and result in prison time plus the confiscation of your weapons and other property.
A link to the bill is included below on the official Senate website. See Section 122 “Firearms Transfers”.
Read it and call your congressman’s office. Talk to their staff. Tell them how you feel about this.
Keep in mind, none of the above would have stopped the tragedy’s in Columbine or Newtown. The proposed law makes you a criminal and opens the door for confiscation of your weapons and property for otherwise routine activities.
Think and act. Congress is hoping that you will do neither.
If you found the patience to read the entire text, you also learned that exactly $100 million per year of your tax money is set aside to enforce these restrictions.
“Let the American youth never forget, that they possess a noble inheritance, bought by the toils, and sufferings, and blood of their ancestors; and capacity, if wisely improved, and faithfully guarded, of transmitting to their latest posterity all the substantial blessings of life, the peaceful enjoyment of liberty, property, religion, and independence.”
–Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution, 1833
“The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed.”
This dude was a terrorist and that is all. Should be in a prison and why the hell isn’t he?
And this surprises some?
Buck Ofama. He just won’t give up.
Jobs, economy, Benghazi, Syria, N Korea, Iran he ignores…
So called leftist started War on Women, Abortion, birth control for children…
Those are all his priorities..
And the media pants adoringly and wags their tails and eats their own shit…
