The state of New York gave gun owners who owned so-called “assault weapons” before the passage of the SAFE Act, a hastily-passed gun control law, until April 15, 2014, to register them with the state government.
On Tuesday, the deadline, New York gun owners and Second Amendment rights advocates gathered in downtown Buffalo, N.Y., and shredded gun registration forms in an act of protest.
New York lawmakers have “shredded” their constitutional rights, so it’s only fitting the gun registration forms get the same treatment, protesters reportedly said.
That definition of insanity is, of course, doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. Alter, who apparently is not all that bright, wonders when Liberals are going to try another boycott of Rush Limbaugh
Former Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter appeared on The Ed Show, Tuesday, to lobby for more boycotts of the “racist” Rush Limbaugh. The radio host’s crime, according to the writer, is making a few joking comments about the shoe-throwing incident involving Hillary Clinton. On his show, Limbaugh mused, “I can totally relate to people who think that everything the Clintons do is staged…I just don’t attach much genuineness to them.”
Limbaugh allowed, “Maybe it’s because in my subconscious, I think it was staged.” Alter railed against Limbaugh, assailing, “When do more boycotts of Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors come? You know, there’s been some racist garbage over the years. He’s been racist on any number of occasions. ” Alter lamented that there has only been ” a little bit of a boycott” over past incidents. [MP3 audio here.]
Oh Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, you are a special kind of stupid aren’t you? Every time thought bigots like you have boycotted Rush, the boycott has not only failed, but has proven to make Rush more popular. But go ahead and boycott there Johnny, and while you are at it, go ahead and bang your head against a brick wall too.
Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.”
The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.
The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform.
“I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, that we as a faculty and staff and student body, as an administration, if we 10 years from now are as white as we are today, we will have failed as a university,” said Bruce Shepard, president of WWU, in a 2012 address.
And the Left wonders why we cannot get past race? Maybe because that is all they focus on.
Bearing Arms has an update on another aspect of how disastrous Fast and Furious was
Let me be clear: Operation Fast and Furious was never about trying to interdict and take down drug cartels. It was thought to have been about providing some small bit of truth to the 90-percent lie told by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder, in order to justify another attempt at a federal “assault weapon” ban.
There were no mechanisms at all to track the thousands of firearms that straw purchasers and low-level smugglers—at least some of whom were federal government informants—bought in the United States and then smuggled back across the border to arm narco-terrorists.
New reports now prove that in addition to the 300+ deaths caused by Fast and Furious guns south of the border, guns are now flowing back northward as cartels extend their reach northward across a border that the federal government refuses to defend:
Smugglers from Arizona being monitored through the U.S. government’s Operation Fast and Furious helped supply firearms to a gun-trafficking ring led by officials in Columbus, N.M., according to court documents.
Court documents also provide additional details on the extent of the Columbus conspirators’ involvement with Mexican drug traffickers and La Linea enforcers of the Carrillo Fuentes drug cartel.
According to one of the court documents, Border Patrol agents looking for a stolen vehicle stopped Blas Gutierrez, a former Columbus Village trustee, and Miguel Carrillo, a gun straw purchaser, in Columbus on Jan. 14, 2010. The two men, who were later convicted in the federal case against 11 Columbus conspirators, were not arrested that day.
The Border Patrol agents who stopped Gutierrez and Carrillo reported that they had found eight firearms inside the 2004 Nissan, including three Romarm Cugir pistols, two Ruger P345 pistols and three Fabrique National de Herstal pistols.
An investigation later determined that the three Fabrique Nationale de Herstal pistols had been purchased Jan. 9, 2010 in Arizona by Jaime Avila, one of the arms-trafficking conspiracy ringleaders who was being monitored by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) as part of Operation Fast and Furious. Avila was one of the main suspects in the ATF’s centerpiece case for Fast and Furious.
The court document stated that the three Romarm Cugir pistols found on Gutierrez and Carrillo that day “were bought (on) an unlisted date by another straw purchaser identified as Uriel Patino, also of Phoenix.” Patino was another ATF target in Operation Fast and Furious. Patino was a co-defendant with Jaime Avila.
And yes, I agree with Bob Owens, this WAS about getting more gun control laws passed. Think about that, I do not care what your opinion of guns is, just think about that.
The Other McCain has an entire week every year dedicated to offending Feminuts. Sadly, this is NOT National Offend a Feminist Week, because I may have stumbled across the ultimate Feminist offending headline EVAH! And, as RS McCain, is busy offending Feminists with Tarzan/Jane references I figured what the Hell, I might as well unleash the headline that will make Feminists howl in outrage. Well yeah, they pretty much howl in outrage all the time anyway, outrage IS their business after all, but still, this will not only cause great outrage, but will clear up their complexions as well If they just stopped hating on men so much.
What are the scariest words to hear? We are from the
government United Nations, we are here to help
The United Nations (UN) has delivered its latest verdict on the measures necessary to save the world from global warming and the news is as grim as it is predictable and wearisomely familiar:
More regulation from “experts”, technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N.
More taxpayer subsidies for expensive, inefficient renewable energy.
More nuclear power (with shale gas used as a transitional fuel to replace coal).
The abandonment of fossil fuels.
Less meat consumption.
A single, globally-regulated price for carbon dioxide.
More local-government-enforced walking, cycling and public transportation.
More back-door wealth redistribution from the West to the developing world in the name of “sustainability”
All at a cost to the global economy of up to 3.7 per cent of GDP by 2030, provided we act now.
All in the pursuit of redistributing wealth and controlling people’s lives
Yes, the dirt bag that killed three at the Kansas City Jewish Center got his guns without a federal background check. The Left, of course, will jump on this as a clear reason why we need “universal background checks”. But, as Bearing Arms points out the shooter got his weapons ILLEGALLY
Frazier Glenn Miller, alias Frazier Glenn Cross is a long-time Ku Klux Klux leader who served time in federal prison on weapons charges. Despite his high-profile history as a felon, hate group leader, and perennial politician, Miller was still able to easily acquire firearms to carry out yesterday’s alleged hate crimes that tookthree innocent lives.
The man who allegedly killed three people when he opened fire outside a Jewish community center and nearby retirement community in a Kansas City suburb Sunday is reportedly a 73-year-old Missouri man with a history of racist and anti-Semitic activity.
A Johnson County (Kan.) jail official told the Associated Press that authorities had identified the suspect in the shooting in Overland Park as Frazier Glenn Cross, aka Frazier Glenn Miller.
The Kansas City Star reported that Miller was booked into the Johnson County jail on suspicion of premeditated first-degree murder Sunday evening, but had not been formally charged. The paper reported that public records showed that Cross is a resident of Aurora, Mo., a small town southwest of Springfield.
Miller had been in prison before on weapons charges, and was a felon. He was a known hate group leader.
Someone tell me again that more gun laws (universal background checks, microstamping, magazine limits, bans on so-called “military style” weapons) would have made a difference here.
The Left, I fear will never grasp this.
The Left likes to claim free speech as their issue, until someone dares disagree with them, or dares say something they disapprove of. Matt at Conservative Hideout has the latest outrageous outrage the Rainbow Shirts AKA Gay Mafia is flipping their lids over
The forces of tolerance are once again on the offensive. Focus on the family has a movie coming out with the topic of traditional marriage. The gay mafia doesn’t like it, so they have decided that no one is allowed to see it. You know, tolerance!
The Christian organization Focus on the Family is releasing a movie in theaters May 6 called “Irreplaceable” about the value of traditional families, the importance of fathers being engaged in their children’s lives and the healing power of forgiveness.
But apparently to some advocates for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender, or LGBT, community, that’s a cardinal sin.
LGBT advocates have launched an effort to disparage themovie online, petition against it and work to make sure“Irreplaceable” isn’t seen in your local theater.
Focus President Jim Daly reports in a blog post that some of the more than 700 theaters nationwide scheduled to showthe film in a one-night-only event are starting to back out, intimidated by homosexual activists.
“Some of those who disagree with us are calling ‘Irreplaceable’ ‘anti-gay propaganda,’” Daly writes, “and demanding that theaters refuse to show the film.”
Efforts to shut down the movie are being coordinated through Facebook, Twitter and a Change.org petition begun by Shalom Rosenberg, a homosexual middle school teacher from Belmont, Calif.

CHRIS WALLACE: Attorney General Eric Holder complaining about treatment of him and also the president after another testy exchange with House Republicans on Capitol Hill. And we’re back now with the panel. Well, Attorney General Holder said the Obama administration has faced, his words, “unprecedented, ugly opposition” and speaking to Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, he clearly implied it’s because of race. Brit, does he have a point?
BRIT HUME: I don’t think so. And I think, you know, first of all, it’s false that no attorney general and no president have been subjected to this kind of treatment. After all, Bill Clinton was impeached. Think about that for a moment. John Mitchell went to jail. I mean the list is long of attorneys general and other officials who have been subjected to some very rough treatment on Capitol Hill and elsewhere. And this strikes me as kind of crybaby stuff from Holder. My sense of that this is that both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African-American and the first to hold the jobs that they hold. And this, I don’t know if he’s specifically meant race or not. I suspect perhaps he did. But to those two men, race has been both a shield and a sword that they have used effectively to defend themselves and to attack others. And I think it is depressing at this stage in our national life after all we’ve been through on this issue and given the overwhelming consensus on the issue of civil rights that this kind of stuff is still going on.
Feminuts vs Trannies! This showdown of victim classes is for the I Am Oppressed Championship Belt! The Other McCain offers a preview
The ongoing conflict between radical feminists and transgender activists, which I first noticed in January and revisited last night in the context of the Dana McCallum rape case, has escaped the notice of mainstream liberal journalism. Liberals tacitly side with the transgenders in pretending that the radfems — a/k/a TERFs (Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminists) — have no legitimate grievance.
What the TERFs perceive is that male-to-female transgenders are cynically seeking to usurp and co-opt the “feminist” label for their own advantage, thus shunting aside biological women and demoting them to second-class status within their own movement.
Of course, the instinctive conservative reaction to all this is to pop some popcorn and enjoy the schadenfreude. But the very fact that liberals want everybody to ignore this obscure conflict should be a clue that the conflict is, in fact, highly significant. Much like the Hugo Schwzyer “male feminist” controversy, which long raged on the margins of Gender Theory discussion before erupting into headlines, the TERF war against transfeminism (and vice-versa) tells us a lot about the problems of contemporary progressivism.
This one should have a stipulation. The loser has to make the winner sandwiches for life!
Before a wig-wearing nutjob threw a shoe at Hillary Clinton, the footwear flinger gave her heart to accused Colorado mass killer James Holmes.
Alison Ernst, 36, of Phoenix, was identified Friday as the sneaker-tossing kook who targeted the former First Lady one day earlier during a speech at a Las Vegas casino.
And Colorado officials confirmed she was the loopy lady escorted from the courtroom after a bizarre — and bald-headed — outburst during an August 2012 court hearing for Holmes. . . .
Twenty months earlier, she arrived in a Colorado courtroom with her head shaved while wearing a red dress before declaring she held evidence “vital to the defense of James Holmes.” Two deputies quickly escorted her outside.
The Arizona woman later filed an off-the-wall lawsuit detailing her devotion to Holmes, who was accused of killing 12 people and wounding another 70 in an Aurora movie theater. . . .
“I seek a restraining order to stop Holmes from entering my mind through subliminal messaging and causing me to be obsessed with him on a daily basis.”
Wow! Sounds like she already has a restraining order against reality
Yes, even when they are in the military. Case in point Lt. Col. Robert Bateman, who wrote pack of lies and distortions after the recent Ft. Hood shootings
What is not working, as Secretary Hagel formulated it, is America’s gun culture. All of these mass shootings took place with privately owned weapons purchased without any sort of serious screening or taken from their rightful owners — a mother or a father, by theft or murder. In essence, you can be a complete and total nutcase and acquire a gun pretty easily. You can even purchase one yourself, provided you do not have a criminal record. Or if you have an IQ over 70 and can drive yourself to a gun show, you can buy one there even if you do have a criminal record.* No matter what, you can have a gun. Period.
Purchased without ANY serious screening? An FBI background check is not serious? Give us a break. As far as a mad man murdering to get a gun, or stealing one, I do not know what Col. Bateman would suggest, well besides trampling American’s inherent right to own guns, which, of course would do nothing but raise the number of violent crimes. Of course, Bateman has to throw in the bogus :gun show loophole lie, as all good gun control types do. The fact is if you are a licensed firearms dealer, you MUST, under federal law, run background check, and Bateman damn well knows that.
This is not, nor should it be, about “American soldiers should carry guns on post.” I guarantee that some lunatics will propose that, claiming that soldiers on military posts always used to have guns on post but that they were “disarmed” by this president or that one. No, the fact is that American soldiers, sailors, and marines never carried their military weapons on post except when training, with the exception of the military police.
No one has suggested any such thing. No one, I repeat NO ONE has suggested soldiers carry their “military weapons on base. WE have suggested, we including survivors of the first Ft. Hood shooting, have suggested that soldiers with concealed carry permits be able to carry their PERSONAL firearms on base. Another lie but Bateman has more
Last month I was traveling, in part with my wife and daughter, and I began to notice something. There were a lot more concealed weapons there than I remember seeing before. Four times in the space of just a few days I noticed men carrying pistols under their shirts, in restaurants, stores, and even in a children’s play area of a shopping mall. This craze, which seems new to me because I have been serving overseas for so long, is taking place not just on the streets or in bars,** but in family restaurants and places where we all shop. So that is a part of the solution.
Bateman must have X-Ray vision. I mean he can see things that are concealed What a great super power he has. It goes great with his ability to fabricate “facts”.
What we need to dois make owning guns impractical for everyone. The simple solution for this is not a new law or judicial ruling. It is “voting” with our wallets.
I started to do it last week when I was in a nice seafood restaurant that had food that was so good I was thinking of writing it up and also telling my friends about the place. As an out-of-the-way joint, they could certainly use the free publicity, though they certainly pulled in their share of locals for a blustery Sunday morning. Then I saw the guns.
He saw the “guns”? Doe she mean he saw random guns wondering around the parking lot? Or maybe he used that X-Ray vision super power again, or maybe he is simply a liar.
Nope, not going to do it, I decided on the spot. And I am also not going to bring my kids or my wife in there ever again until they decide that guns are not allowed in their restaurant. And that, friends, is the solution. Not confrontation with the gun owners, not legislation by politicians beholden to the big money of the NRA, just a simple statement to the owners and managers of every store, every chain, every restaurant where you see somebody carrying a concealed weapon: “I am never coming back to this store until you ban guns on your property.”
Well, any business can choose for itself, but really now, a serious question for Col. Bateman. How many times has a person with a permit to carry concealed gone mad and shot up a mall, restaurant, or park? Go ahead and look that up Mr. Bateman, I can wait. The fact is that type of thing DOES NOT HAPPEN. But there are plenty of examples of people, intent on doing evil, arming themselves ILEGALLY and walking right past the “guns banned here” signs Bateman calls for. I have three words for Lt. Col. Bateman, they fit perfectly. Stuck on Stupid!
The fact is that violent crime does not rise, and usually decreases in states with concealed carry. Another fact is that guns are used more often, FAR more often in self defense, than to commit some heinous act. As well, ten of millions of Americans own guns, and never do anything wrong with those guns, and again, many of them DO defend themselves with their firearms. Likewise millions of Americans with concealed carry permits never cause any harm, yet the gun control zealots wish to smear them anyway. And finally, I trust a soldier with a carry permit far more than I trust a zealot like Lt. Col. Bateman
Took my S&W M&P 9MM to the range today, and put 150 rounds through it. And, all 150 were in the 8-10 rings and 138 hit in the 9 or 10. It was nice, as I was the only one on the short side (15 yard) of the range, so I just locked in and had fun.
I have watched some reviews on the M&P and some of those are really tough on this gun’s trigger, one even called it awful. Sorry, I do not agree with that. It is a very good trigger to me. When I first fired the gun it took a bit to really “get” the trigger, it felt a bit light at first, but after 100 rounds or so, I really like this trigger. This gun is a joy to shoot, recoil is minimal, so firing rapidly and staying accurate is a breeze. My last 14 shots, were from 5 yards and I just ripped them as fast as I could, and all found the 9-10 rings. Of course, gun opinions and opinions about triggers are subjective, so what I like, others might not, but how anyone bashes this trigger system escapes me. Here is my target
OK, let me clear up the dangerous part of the title. After I had finished, I went back in the pro shop to return my eyes and ears, and pick up some solvent since my Rem Oil is about used up. I bought some Break Free CLP if you want to know. I used to use Hoppes 9 but that stuff tears up my hands, but anyway, back to the danger of picking up a new gun.
As I was waiting to pay for my cleaner, I was talking to one of the guys that run the place, and in the gun case right in front of me was a Ruger SR 40 C. I asked if I could see it and let me say, it felt so good in my hand, light, and very ergonomic and the trigger is supposed to be one of the very best. So, that is the danger, now I want one, and they run between $450 and $500, so it is an affordable semi-auto. It comes with a 9 round mag, and a 15 round mag as well. With the 10 round mag it is a good carry size. By the way I just corrected the mag sizes, I had previously listed the 9MM mag capacities, 10, and 17 my mistake
Here it is,
and it also comes, for more money of course in a TALO edition, which really looks sharp. Do I “need” another gun? No, but man I like this one
Hint: it’s the people passing laws that require people to verify who they are in order to vote
(The Blaze) President Barack Obama tore into state voter ID laws Friday when speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, accusing Republicans of trying to block minorities, women and seniors from voting and calling the laws a fraud.
“We don’t want folks voting that shouldn’t be voting,” Obama told the gathering in New York. “Let’s stipulate to that as the lawyers say, but there is a reason why those who argue that harsh restrictions on voting are somehow necessary to fight voter fraud are having such a hard time proving any real widespread voter fraud.”
Except for the 36,000 cases of potential voter fraud in 2012, just in the state of North Carolina. Every illegal vote harms a legitimate vote.
Obama said most studies show voter fraud is not a problem.
“The real voter fraud is those that try to deny our rights by making arguments about voter fraud. but I have to say, there have been some of these officials who have been passing these laws have been more blunt,” Obama said.
Wow, just wow
Covering the Persident’s ass
In recent months more Detroit homeowners have taken matters into their own hands, shooting suspected intruders on-site and, in some cases, killing them.
For example, three cases of homeowners shooting suspected intruders have been reported in the past five weeks.
In early March, a 17-year-old was fatally shot outside a home on Penrod Street. On March 25, a homeowner with a valid concealed weapons license fatally shot two suspected intruders at his home on Dexter. Earlier this week a homeowner shot two suspected intruders, killing a 15-year-old.
In those cases, the homeowners are not facing charges.
Ron Scott of the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality believes in self defense but says these “vigilantees” have gone too far.
“Certainly people have a right to defend themselves in their home but they do not have a right to make it a free-fire zone, and the chief, or his spokesperson, should never put that in the minds of people. We must operate not on the basis of fear but on the basis of understanding and how we as a community can come together to stop the violence,” he says.
This idiot really ought to read the definition of vigilante is. And what the heck he means by “free-fire zones” is beyond me. Basically he is demonizing anyone who uses deadly force to defend their lives as lawless killers. And he can flap his gums about “fear” and “understanding” all day long, but the only people responsible for these shootings are the thugs who decided they were entitled to break in people’s homes and threaten their lives.
Here is more about Ron Scott that explains his pro-criminal bias. From his bio at Huff PO
Ron Scott was a member of the Detroit Chapter of the Black Panther Party and has been actively involved on the ground level here in Detroit and across the nation over 40 years fighting for the human rights of people of color. He is a member of the Boggs Center Board, an active member of Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality, a Detroit Community organizer/activist and co-host a radio show here in Detroit.
At the Detroit Coalition Against Police Brutality website there are some links to some interesting sites, including one to “Free Mumia” a heinous cop killer who the far Left has embraced. You can read them all here Lots of the links are old and no longer work, and the site itself was last updated in 2012. Maybe Scott is just searching for some publicity so he can get back in the race pimping game?
