How About The White House Shuts Up!!!

White House Suggests More Gun Control To Address Surge Of Shootings in Chicago, Baltimore, And New York City…

Maybe a little idiot in Government control?

All three cities have historically had the toughest gun laws in the nation..

And they have not worked..Now they piss on law enforcement, goaded on by Obama..

And all are led by DemocRATS…

So maybe supporting LEOs may work a bit better and letting them do their jobs without politicians looking for headlines coming after them all the time??

Just saying…

 

Did You See This Victory for Second Amendment Rights?

GOA Victory in the U.S. Supreme Court!
— Decision is a win for private property and the Second Amendment

“In protecting an individual right to keep and bear arms, the Second Amendment secures a right of private property in those arms that are protected by the Amendment.” — GOA brief in Henderson v. United States, (p. 19)

The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday decided Henderson v. United States — a case where Gun Owners of America and its foundation have been very active.

The Court’s unanimous (9-0) ruling further protects Second Amendment rights and erects a higher barrier against the confiscation of firearms.

The case involved Tony Henderson, a former Border Patrol agent with a previous pot conviction.  Because of his felony, the government tried to take his firearms collection, which totaled more than $3,500.

Gun Owners of America went to bat for Mr. Henderson and argued he should be able to sell his guns, which at the time, were in the FBI’s possession.

 

After Henderson had been convicted on an unrelated marijuana conviction, he sold his ownership rights in the firearms to an unrelated third party who was legally eligible to possess the firearms.  The third party asked the FBI to turn the guns over to the purchaser, but the FBI refused.

The government used a theory of “constructive possession” to claim that Mr. Henderson’s firearms could not be transferred, even to a third party, without violating the felon-in-possession ban.

The trial court and the court of appeals agreed with this legal fiction, preventing Mr. Henderson from selling his firearms to the unrelated third party.

Thankfully, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously sided in favor of Tony Henderson.

The high Court held that the government’s “constructive possession” theory was unsustainable and inconsistent with the purpose of the statute, which is a position consistent with our amicus brief.

Our amicus brief (Section II) also argued that the government did not have a superior property interest in Mr. Henderson’s firearms.  This is why, GOA said, the government could not use a forfeiture proceeding to take all of Mr. Henderson’s firearms.

As a “right protecting against both public and private violence,” GOA argued in its brief, it is an “essential principle” that the Second Amendment protect the right of private property in firearms — otherwise, tyrants would be free to “simply tak[e] away the people’s arms” on the basis of any pretext. (p. 20-21)

The court’s decision is a victory for private property rights, and helps to further erect a barrier against the confiscation of firearms.

The only constraint the Court imposed in this case was that a felon could not sell his collection to someone who later would allow him to control the firearms.

Governor Dayton And Lt. Governor Tina Smith Playing Politics…

Governor Dayton And Lt. Governor Tina Smith Playing Politics …

Rather than working with fellow Minnesota leaders, Gov. Dayton and Lt. Gov. Smith will be busy campaigning for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday. Their actions continue a pattern of unfortunate priorities and bad ideas that have been in place for over four years, as Democrat leadership at the Capitol has led Minnesota backwards.

Anti-Gun Democrat Lawmaker Blasts Girlfriend’s Car With Shotgun

Anti-Gun Democrat Lawmaker Blasts Girlfriend’s Car With Shotgun

And of course they arrested….the gun..

Looking through the article there is nary a word of Lawmaker being arrested..

Being an anti-gun Democrat in a Democrat-controlled city, Senator Virgil Smith has not been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, discharging a weapon within city limits, property damage, or any of the other charges that the non-politically-connected might have faced for such obvious criminal behavior.

Lawmaker…one stupid assed term if I may say so..

 

2015 Gun Facts Scorecard

Scoring State Gun Control & Gun Rights Laws.

Every year the Brady Campaign produces their State Scorecard, ranking which states have the “strongest gun laws.”

Every year, we prove there is no correlation between what Brady thinks is a good gun control law and violent crime.

This year, we decided enough is enough. To end the ongoing canard called the Brady Campaign State Scorecard, we embarked on a preliminary study of the effectiveness of gun control and gun rights legislation, to see what has an effect on violence.

The Top Take-Aways

The Brady Campaign will not be happy. After performing some high-level statistical analysis on a roster of laws, we found that:

  • The Brady Campaign State Scorecard has no correlation to violent crime control

  • Some correlation exists between public carry of firearms and lower violent crime

  • Seven points of gun owner rights liberation correlate with lower crime, whereas none appear for tighter gun restrictions

  • Most gun control laws appear to encourage robbery

  • None of the popular gun control laws reduced firearm homicides
