“Is it reasonable to expect wisdom from the ignorant? Fidelity from the profligate? Assiduity and application to public business from men of a dissipated life? Is it reasonable to commit the management of public revenue to one who has wasted his own patrimony? Those, therefore, who pay no regard to religion and sobriety in the persons whom they send to the legislature of any State are guilty of the greatest absurdity and will soon pay dear for their folly.” –John Witherspoon, A Sermon Delivered at Public Thanksgiving after Peace
Castle Doctrine going to protect you after you shoot? In your own house?
Because they are not there to save you. They are not there to protect you. They are there to respond after the incident is over and well..investigate..
As the petty little DICtator should..Not to be confused with the petty little DICtator Buck Ofama…They should both STFU and disappear..
Emanuel Getting Return Fire for Pressuring Banks on Guns
After learning that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel had asked Bank of America and TD Bank to pressure Smith & Wesson and Sturm, Ruger into accepting gun measures being offered by the Obama administration, Texas Senator Ted Cruz has fired back, sending his own letter to both gun companies, both banks, and Emanuel. Cruz characterizes Emanuel’s efforts as hardly qualifying as “modest common sense gun control” then invites both banks to move to Texas while encouraging Emanuel to “keep efforts to diminish the Bill of Rights north of the Red River.” Others, including Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) Chairman Alan Gottlieb were somewhat more direct, accusing Emanuel of acting “like a Chicago gangster and not a public servant”. Gottlieb also suggested that “gun owners and supports of the Bill of Rights should stop giving Chicago a line of credit by purchasing municipal bonds.”

From the Shooting Wire..
In the battle to protect our second amendment rights we’re not exactly faring so well.
First, we failed on three irrefutable laws of politics. In politics they say “speed kills” which means that responding with speed, or attacking with speed, kills your challenger. And NO, not literally “kills” but figuratively. Nothing about our response or communications plan suggests speed.
Democratic consultant James Carville once famously said, “If you don’t feed the press the press will feed on you.” We’ve been living proof of that over the last couple weeks.
And then there is the truest of political laws that “if you don’t define yourself for the voters then your opponent will define you for them”. We’ve been defined by our opponents in this fight just about every second of every day.
We’ve dropped the ball on all three of these, and as a result we have suffered greatly.
Yet somehow keep coming out ahead when the do fail..
The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) approved the $256 million sale of A123 Systems’ operation, despite warnings from military insiders and lawmakers on Capitol Hill that the sale presents a danger to national security.
A123 Systems, which went bankrupt despite the Obama administrations’ $249 million in green energy funding to produce advanced lithium ion batteries, controls 91 patents for the sensitive technology.
Well this is somewhat of a kick in the ass for Feinstein! The most Impotent Dhimmicrap in the Senate says ummm not so much..
Holder…Acting out, as usual, unconstitutionally and well beyond his scope..But then like Buck Ofama his Lord and Master, he is an arrogant effing prick..
According to reports, Attorney General Eric Holder has begun the implementation of three gun control measures related to President Obama’s Jan. 16 executive orders.
I lurves it when the entitled folks so enamored by Buck Ofama come out against him!!
Thousands of poor Brazilian families are living in wretched conditions at make-shift refugee camps after being evicted from their homes at gunpoint by federal forces, some of whom were sporting United Nations logos, according to sources.
Oh look!! The UN involved? More petty little pissants running around…I see UN in my neighborhood! Well things could go badly..
Hey!! Where do you stand on abortion and what do you think God thinks of that??
Gun Control Isn’t Just About the Guns
No it is not…It is about control..
Obama losing his gun control campaign
New polling from Washington Post-ABC News and Pew find that President Obama’s campaign to repress the Second Amendment right “keep and bear arms” is faltering.
On January 22, 2013, Pew released polling results that found the public followed news about Obama’s gun control proposals closely and the reaction is mixed. Only 39 percent think Obama’s proposals are about right, while 31 percent think the proposals go too far. Or, as Politico put it, “39 percent back Obama gun plan.”
Of course there is the usual partisan divide. A 57 percent majority of Republicans say the proposals go too far, and 25 percent say they are about right. A 55 percent majority of Democrats (55%) say the proposals s are about right, and 10 percent say they go too far. Independents are more evenly divided — 36 percent say the proposals are about right, while 33 percent say they go too far. . . . please click here for the rest of the post →
MO Lawmakers: Parents Must Notify Schools Of Gun Ownership In 30 Days
Here we go. Missouri Statelawmakers see dollar signs in their eyes and they are using the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut to push for legislation that would require parents in the state to notify the schools their children that they own a firearm within 30 days or face a fine.
How to pull a major Oops…And Reed pulled a major Ooops…
Yesterday, Reed Exhibitions announced it was “postponing” the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show. Originally scheduled to begin on February 2 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, the nine day show is the country’s largest outdoor show, and regularly attracts as many as 200,000 outdoor enthusiasts. It also puts an estimated $44 million in direct revenues into the region’s economy. Some hoteliers and restaurants say this decision will “make for a very long winter” in their area. Many of the more than 1,000 exhibitors come from out of the region and provide a huge boost to a slow season during the nine-day event. Reed kicked off a controversy when managers announced their decision not to allow any presence of the AR-rifle platform at the Eastern Show. That prohibition even extended to images of the rifle used to solicit raffle ticket sales. In other words, the AR (initially, they called it an “assault rifle”) was a non-starter at what Reed considered a pure hunting and fishing show.
Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, is an ardent defender of the Second Amendment and a member of the House Judiciary Committee. He told WND the latest gun-control push from Democrats was totally, and sadly, predictable.
“The people that have stepped forward on this are the gun grabbers. They are the anti-Second Amendment crowd. They are the opportunists that showed up the morning after the terrible tragedy at Sandy Hook,” said King. “So the president is following Rahm Emanuel’s directive. It’s a crisis that he doesn’t want to let go to waste.”
King rejects all of the main Obama priorities on guns and took special aim at the effort to reduce magazine capacity.
“If you’re going to reduce the number of rounds in a clip, where is the constitutional stop for that? Do you do it at 10 rounds? Seven rounds? Six, five, four, one? Or do you just say everything has to be a single shot?” asked King. “When you go down this incremental encroachment upon our Second Amendment rights, I think they probably would not stop at machetes. But that’s the direction they want to go.”

BANK RUN: $114 Billion Withdrawn From Big US Banks
More Gun Ban Bills..
Along with Feinstein scheming to get things passed in the Senate there are anti-gun democrats proposing similar bills in the House:
- H.R. 138 would ban transfer or possession of standard-capacity magazines, targeting those that hold more than 10 rounds.
- H.R. 142 would ban Internet or mail order ammunition purchases, require a federal license for all ammunition sellers and mandate reporting of “bulk” ammo purchases.
- H.R. 21 would ban all private firearms transfers.
- H.R. 34 & H.R. 117 are both gun registration bills overriding long standing protections of gun owner privacy.
This is more evidence that these anti-gunners do not care about the Second Amendment. They do not care about our Right to Bear Arms. They are not concerned with the nation’s hunters, sportsmen, or families trying to protect themselves.
The liberals go on TV to discuss gun control to complain that conservatives do not compromise and that “something is better than nothing.” They play the victim like they are just looking for minor gun control to prevent tragedies. They say they will never threaten the use of weapons used for hunting and personal protection. Then they propose something that is so extreme like Feinstein’s proposed ban; of course we would never cooperate or agree with this.
