Should the FBI Know How Many Guns You Own?

The "library records" provision of the so-called Patriot Act could also be known as the "gun records" provision, because it also allows the FBI to seize the forms you use to buy guns.

This infamous provision, Section 215, is a direct assault on your Fourth Amendment rights because it allows the FBI to obtain personal information about you, without a warrant and without your knowledge.

Section 215 is set to expire in May, along with two other provisions. But Congress will probably renew these provisions unless it hears from YOU.

Tell Congress to repeal the ENTIRE Patriot Act, and renew NONE of its provisions.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The FBI already had powerful tools to combat terrorism before the Patriot Act. The FISA court would allow the FBI to obtain records of suspected terrorists from motels, car rental agencies, storage facilities, and similar businesses.

But the Patriot Act’s Section 215 dangerously broadens this power. Now, the FBI can . . .

* Merely claim, without providing ANY evidence, that the information it seeks is "relevant" to a terrorism investigation
* Acquire personal information on anyone, including U.S. citizens not suspected of terrorism (or any other crime)
* "Gag" institutions and businesses so they can’t tell people they are being investigated
* Obtain even the most private information, such as emails, medical records, library history, and gun purchase forms

Section 215 violates not only the Fourth Amendment, but also the First and Second Amendments. The federal government has no business knowing what I read or how many guns I own.

The Justice Department’s own Inspector General has found that the FBI uses Section 215 powers tens of thousands of times per year, mostly targeted at innocent Americans.

This makes me suspect that the real purpose of Section 215 isn’t to protect me, but instead to allow the FBI to spy on, intimidate, and blackmail people it doesn’t like, just as it did in the J. Edgar Hoover days.

If you don’t want to be compared to J. Edgar, then don’t allow the FBI the power to invade the privacy of innocent Americans. Oppose renewal of Section 215. Instead, repeal the Patriot Act!

Villagers outraged after police order them not to protect garden sheds | Mail Online

Villagers outraged after police order them not to protect garden sheds | Mail Online.

Residents in Surrey and Kent villages have been ordered by police to remove wire mesh from their windows as burglars could be injured.

Home owners in the villages of Tandridge and Tatsfield in Surrey and in Westerham, Brasted and Sundridge in Kent have said they are furious that they are being branded ‘criminals’ for protecting their property.

Take their guns, knives and what ever else the nanny state deems “dangerous” in merry old nutless England and just let the bad guys waltz on into your home….
Certainly does nothing for ones right to live without fear now does it?
The stupid should and will hurt…

One for Me! None for You!!

MArooned: If This Surprises You….
EDITORIAL: Guns for us, not for you

Some of the most far-out anti-gun laws are found on the left coast, but that could change – for privileged politicians. A California state Senate committee will consider a
bill next week that grants legislators permission to carry concealed firearms. The measure highlights the growing rift between the bureaucratic class and taxpayers who don’t have the luxury of exempting themselves from bad laws.

Range Day..More Ammo to Test..

Got to the Burnsville Range today.

Took along another box from Bulkammo.com.

This time Fiocchi .357 JHPs.

With a 125 grn bullet.

Again shooting it in my trusty GP-100,

I also had along a box of reloads 158 grn plated bullets with 3.3 grns of Bullseye behind them.

I went through my reloads first and then loading up with the Fiocchi’s. Since I am usually shooting 158 grn JHP when I shoot .357s I was a bit unsure what to expect, though I was fairly sure the Fiocchi’s would be a bit “easier” on the hand and wrist.

They were. I was surprised a bit how easy shooting they were!

Plenty of boom. I noticed the Dad and young son in next lane take notice when I sent my first 6 down range.

I proceeded to fire away.

Accuracy was good, was shooting offhand, mostly SA. A few in DA. Accuracy was decent and I am sure would be better with someone whom got and shot a little more then I have this winter!! I would bet on it!

A bit tighter then the .38 reloads!!

I have shot some Fiocchi before in my 9mm. And also I have a number of 12 gauge double ought rounds.

But have never really paid attention to performance.

Other then if I had a problem.

These rounds performed, accuracy was fine.

No noticeable “extra” residue when I cleaned my GP.

SO all in all a  satisfactory experience and would not be afraid to purchase a bunch if or when needed.

As always was a pleasure to get out and shoot a bit. Especially after last week!!

Range was busy. No one waiting when we arrived, plenty on the range and we got in right away. When we left they were waiting to shoot.

Always good to “exercise” those 2nd Amendment Rights and practice “real” gun control….By hitting your target!!!

Molon Labe…

Rules?? What Are rules? I don't need no stinking rules!!!
