Communism, in all its forms, destroys liberty, wealth, and hope, as Venezuela shows us. Food rationing, nationalization of businesses destitution, in an oil RICH nation, and of course gun confiscation
The socialist President of Venezuela is spending a whopping $47 million on disarmament centers. They can’t even keep stores stocked with toilet paper, or other necessities, but he’s concentrating on disarming Venezuelan citizens.
It’s what happens to gun owners and freedom when a lawless, leftwing, socialist president who doesn’t like America, who uses the power of his office to intimidate his political opponents, and who will do nearly anything to preserve his power gets elected. On Sunday, Nicholas Maduro, the president of Venezuela, announced that he will spend $47 million for 60 civilian disarmament centers, where people can turn in their privately owned guns. Venezuela banned the commercial sale of guns in 2012, and Maduro–continuing the fundamental transformation of the country begun by his predecessor, Hugo Chavez–now says “We are building peace from within, and for that, you need disarmament.”
History repeats itself, and God help the people of Venezuela if they are foolish enough to comply.
Well, it seems that enough pressure can even change the minds of lowlife DA’s
Shaneen Allen, guilty of being a gun totting single mother, is now finally receiving the justice that wife-beating Ray Rice received from the same prosecutor.
Because of all the outrage and phone calls and emails sent to the New Jersey legal apparatus the DA has finally been pressured into offering Shaneen Allen the pre trial intervention, sparing her from a trial that would have cost her thousands and held a penalty if she lost of 10 years in jail.
The Attorney General of New Jersey, seeing the spit storm mounting decided to swoop in and give everyone political cover offering “clarification” to county prosecutors with respect to out-of-state visitors from states where their gun possession would be legal.
AG John Hoffman:
“In most of these cases, imprisonment is neither necessary nor appropriate to serve the interests of justice and protect public safety.”
To which slime ball DA McClain stated:
“In applying the factors set out in the clarification, I determined that the defendant in this case should be offered the opportunity to be admitted into the Atlantic County PTI Program. I have communicated that determination to the court and defense counsel.”
Now the next step is for New Jersey to change its anti-liberty laws, and for the Congress to enact a national reciprocity law for CHL holders!
Ah, laws, don’t you just love them. You can carry your firearm in a national park, but you may not use that firearm
WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) — A 57-year-old Texas man faces a federal misdemeanor charge of discharging a firearm in a national park after he reported shooting a charging bear with his .357 revolver.
Brian R. Muphy’s attorney is scheduled to plead not guilty on Murphy’s behalf during a court hearing in West Glacier on Friday. Murphy is scheduled to appear via video.
Charging documents say Murphy was hiking on the Mount Brown Lookout Trail on July 26 when a grizzly bear charged him. He told rangers he discharged his bear spray and fired a shot when the bear continued toward him. The wounded bear fled and could not be located.
It is legal to carry a gun in Glacier National Park but it is illegal to discharge it. A conviction carries a $500 fine.
Can’t we get some laws that make sense?
And, damned convenient! H/T Bob Owens
Government Watchdog Judicial Watch is claiming that Attorney General Eric Holder has announced his resignation due to his inability to further stonewall the American people over his role in one of ten alleged plots to smuggle American guns to Mexican narco-terrorist organizations and domestic gangs in an attempt to build support for more draconian gun control laws in the United States.
Likewise, Kelly Terry-Willis, the sister of Brian Terry, a Border Patrol agent murdered with guns smuggled in one of those operations, says that she doesn’t find the timing of his resignation to be a coincidence :
“I do not find it a coincidence that Eric Holder chose now to resign after Judge Bates denied the request from the DOJ to delay the release of the Fast and Furious documents. I personally think Eric Holder was really hoping that the documents would never be made public to my family and the American people,” Terry-Willis tells Townhall. “Will we ever get the accountability for my brother, Brian, Jaime Zapata and every other person who lost their lives to the guns from this horrific scandal? I don’t know, but I have a serious gut feeling when we finally see what is in those documents….the dynamics of this investigation are going to change and hopefully the people involved are brought to justice. Eric Holder can run, but there will be no hiding. The truth always reveals itself.”
Judicial Watch had sued the Department of Justice for a listing of the Fast and Furious documents the administration is hiding under Obama’s executive privilege, and and Federal judge ruled this week that the Administration must turn those documents over :
The court ruling to which [Judicial Watch President Tom] Fitton is referring is an order by a federal judge that by Oct. 22 the DOJ must provide Judicial Watch with a listing of the Fast and Furious documents the administration is hiding under Obama’s executive privilege—called a “Vaughn index.”
“A Vaughn index must: (1) identify each document withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption,” Judicial Watch noted in its press release announcing the ruling on Thursday.
Fitton said that the resignation of the “disgraced Holder” is “past due accountability for Holder’s Fast and Furious lies, and I hope it brings some solace to the family of U.S. Border Patrol Brian Terry and the hundreds of innocent Mexicans likely killed thanks to the Holder Justice Department’s scheme that armed the murderous Mexican drug cartels.”
Fast and Furious is one of ten possible gunwalking operations in five states , according to investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson.
At least one of those alleged DOJ operations, dubbed “Gangwalker,” was apparently designed to supply weapons to Chicago’s murderous drug gangs and drive up the number of gang-related homicides in that city, increasing calls for more restrictive gun control laws.
Anything to “never let a crisis go to waste” right? Even if that includes creating that crisis. And what are a few hundred lives in the pursuit of “gun sense” right? And note this. If terrorists, working with these cartels, infiltrate our country and commit acts of terror, I wonder how many of the weapons they use will be linked to, well, you know. And, Holder will be nowhere to be found, or to be held responsible for any role he might have played. What a convenient time to step down. Isn’t that just, well…,special
