Formerly ‘Great’ Britain…

Pussified…

Before a similar quote was attributed to Rahm Emanuel, former-United Kingdom Prime Minister Winston Churchill supposedly stated, “never let a good crisis go to waste.” While the quote is of questionable veracity, current-UK PM David Cameron seems to embrace the sentiment. Following November’s heinous terrorist attacks in Paris, the Tory leader no longer appears content to merely subjugate the proles of Airstrip One, and has, in the run up to a European Council meeting held Friday December 18, demanded that the rest of Europe enact severe gun controls. While most of the EU is not a paragon of gun rights, at the moment some of its countries are considerably more respectful of those rights than the UK.

Law Enforcement Across U.S. Encourages Controversial Gun Practice

Causing many gun grabbing statists to wet themselves..And go into hysterics..

Two law enforcement officers from different parts of the country have encouraged those with valid permits to carry a pistol, to PLEASE do so. Citing the attacks in recent months all over the world, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, known as “The Toughest Sheriff In America”, along with Sheriff Paul Van Blarcum from Ulster County, NY, voiced their plea for legally armed

Times that Try Men’s Souls are Overwhelming by Design…

The gun-grabbers are coming at us from all directions. Oath Breaker-in-Chief Barack Obama and the leading Democrat contender for his job, the wretched unindicted co-conspirator Hillary Clinton, have both made citizen disarmament centerpieces of their political platforms, implying Australian-style gun confiscations are in the plans.

The “newspaper of record” took the unusual step of giving its citizen disarmament editorial front page headline placement, advocating:

Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

How the ‘New York Times’ and Loretta Lynch Made Me Join the NRA…

The New York Times and Attorney General Loretta Lynch have finally put an end to all that. Hello again, Mr. LaPierre. Here’s my twenty-five bucks.  Send me that rosewood knife.  I’m in.

I don’t know which is worse, Ms. Lynch or the NYT. Actually they’re closely related, but let me start with the paper.  They published an editorial Friday (“End the Gun Epidemic in America“), contra the 2nd Amendment and calling for the confiscation of arms:

 Certain kinds of weapons, like the slightly modified combat rifles used in California, and certain kinds of ammunition, must be outlawed for civilian ownership. It is possible to define those guns in a clear and effective way and, yes, it would require Americans who own those kinds of weapons to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.

The amazing, and revealing, aspect of the editorial is that only days after the San Bernardino attack the words “Islam,” “ISIS,” “jihad” or anything resembling them are not mentioned in this editorial (as if they were complete anathema), only the amorphous “terrorism.” To wit:

America’s elected leaders offer prayers for gun victims and then, callously and without fear of consequence, reject the most basic restrictions on weapons of mass killing, as they did on Thursday. They distract us with arguments about the word terrorism. Let’s be clear: These spree killings are all, in their own ways, acts of terrorism.

MNGOPAC ACTION ALERT: It’s time to get involved.

Minnesota Gun Owners Political Action Committee

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families impacted by yesterday’s tragedy in California.

We were also humbled by the courage displayed by law enforcement officers in their response yesterday. Their actions likely saved the lives of many victims. They are the true heroes of yesterday’s event.

Unfortunately, the anti-gunners are already out in force calling for restrictions on your Second Amendment rights.

The President, even while the situation was still unfolding, called for “universal background checks”, the use of secret government lists to ban people from exercising their Second Amendment rights, and on and on.

DFL Representative Kim Norton (HD 25B – Rochester) called this morning for the repeal of carry laws, new waiting periods, universal background checks, and other limits.  Here’s her post on Twitter:
