Chicago and the perverse morality of gun control

When you want to see the moral retardation of the gun control cult in all its depravity, look at Chicago. Right now, the city council and mayor are doing their level best to make sure no one can run a legitimate gun store in the city. All the while the body count from armed gangs and thugs keeps mounting, Bob Owens takes a look at this farce

Thanks to absurdly restrictive gun control laws that ensured that only criminals and cops had handguns, Chicago has long been little more than “Mogadishu on Lake Michigan.” It is a bloody nightmare of a city when gunfire crackles through the air, day and night.  Is not at all uncommon for 50 or more people to be shot in the course of a weekend. Indeed, this past weekend, more than 60 people were shot, 9 of them fatally .

But Illinois Democrats have been forced by the courts to finally begin issuing concealed carry permits so that citizens can defend themselves, and the first permits were issued earlier this year.

An unnamed serviceman put his legally concealed handgun to good use Friday night after a thug opened fire on a group of people because they dared move his drink off of their car when they wanted to leave.

No… I’m not kidding .

The military member and three others were leaving a party Friday night in the 11700 block of South Union Avenue in West Pullman, Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Hain said in Cook County Bond Court.

One of the victims noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle and asked attendees of a party next door who it belonged to, Hain said.

When she removed it, Denzel A. Mickiel approached her, shouting obscenities and threatening her and her friends, according to Hain and court records.

Mickiel, 22, went into the residence, returned with a gun and began firing at the group, she said.

As Mickiel fired shots at the victims’ vehicle, the military member retrieved his gun and took cover near the vehicle’s front fender, according to Hain. Two unidentified males also shot at the group, she said.

The service member fired two shots and struck Mickiel twice, she said.

Mickiel is in critical condition, and the group that merely asked a drink be moved from their car are all going to be OK.  That would not have been the case had the good guy not been armed. In fact, those people would likely be dead, and certainly the gun control cult would have  used their deaths as reason to further disarm the law abiding. Will Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City Council learn from this? Will they grasp that what they are doing in trying to make it impossible for people to legally attain firearms for self-defense is morally deficient? Likely not, after all it is not safety they are after, it is control, of people they are after. To them gun ownership is part of Individualism, which is a sin against their Collectivist ideology. Again, a good guy stops a violent attack with a legally carried firearm, and again, the morally retarded gun control cult will ignore it and continue to push for more gun people control.

Hillary, Hillary, you shameless liar you

I am, it would seem, a terrorist in the eyes of she who would be queen. I am not alone though, Bob Owens, he must be a terrorist too!

It appears that the woman who was so corrupt that she was thrown out of the Watergate trial isn’t a fan of guns in the hands of anyone except Vince Foster.

During a town hall meeting today, Clinton said that American gun owners opposed to universal background checks—an prerequisite for registration and confiscation— are terrorizing the rest of the nation.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke about her views on gun control Tuesday, saying she was “disappointed” Congress did not pass a universal background checks bill after “the horrors” of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

In fact, we have, and have had background checks for buying a gun since the early 90′s. This is the truth no matter Statists like Clinton knowingly LIE and say there are no background checks

“I believe that we need a more thoughtful conversation, we cannot let a minority of people — and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people — hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a CNN town hall.

Did you catch that folks. We, the Collective, the Community, simply cannot allow certain viewpoints because that might “terrorize” the majority. apparently Ms. Clinton wants to control your speech too

Clinton said she feels for parents sending their kids to school, noting that there have been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook.

No, there have NOT BEEN 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook. That claim was patently false, and was absolutely debunked by Politifact AND CNN Ms. Clinton.

“I don’t think any parent, any person, should have to fear about their child going to school or going to college because someone, for whatever reasons — psychological, emotional, political, ideological, whatever it means — could possibly enter that school property with an automatic weapon and murder innocent children, students, teachers,” Clinton said.

Here we go again, a Statist talking of eliminating fear as if they can control that. Not to mention that nothing that Ms. Clinton supports would have stopped any of the recent mass shootings.  Even a spokestool of Bloomberg admits that

At our companion site Townhall.com Katie Pavlich notes that the man who was Michael Bloomberg’s top paid gun grabber has admitted that the various citizen control schemes proposed by gun control groups would have had no impact on mass shootings:

Meet Mark Glaze, the former executive director and face of Michael Bloomberg’s Everytown For Gun Safety,a group that used to be called Mayors Against Illegal Guns [MAIG]. Whenever a mass shooting occurs (which despite popular belief and hysteria from the media, isn’t happening more frequently than it used to), Glaze takes to the airwaves to demand new gun control legislation, specifically expanded background checks.

As of Friday, Glaze left his post with MAIG Everytown and is admitting in an exit interview with the Wall Street Journal that the proposals outlined by the gun control group and sent to Congress, would not have prevented mass shootings in the past and won’t stop them in the future.

Make sure that you read Glaze’s exact words, which are an admission that the gun control policies pushed by Moms Demand Action From Illegal Mayors In Everytown (MDAIMIE) will in no way slow or stop mass killings.

So, if you are a supporter of “#gunsense” ask yourself why these laws are being pushed if the people pushing them ADMIT they will never prevent a shooting at a school or other public place? Then ask yourself why you would ever support a candidate that supported such laws.

And the award for most effective gun control group in America goes to………..

These idiots!

The most effective gun control group in the United States has struck twice again in recent weeks, and they have convinced two more restaurant chains to ban the carry of firearms:

Two more restaurant chains are adding their names to the list of eateries that have adopted a no-guns policy.

Sonic Drive-In and Chili’s Grill & Bar issued statements Friday asking patrons to leave their guns at home.

USA Today reported Saturday that the announcements were prompted by recent demonstrations by open-carry activists who brought rifles and shotguns into Sonic, Chili’s and Chipotle Mexican Grill outlets in Texas.

“We recognize that the open carry of firearms in restaurants creates an uncomfortable atmosphere and is not permitted under many local liquor laws,” Chili’s Dallas-based parent said in statement. “So, we kindly ask that guests refrain from openly carrying firearms into our restaurants and we will continue to follow state and local laws on this issue.”

The Oklahoma-based Sonic said: “We’ve considered the views and desires of our customers and employees that staff the drive-ins across the country. Accordingly, we’re asking that customers refrain from bringing guns onto our patios or into our indoor dining areas. With respect to the storage of guns in vehicles, we ask that our customers continue to honor local laws.”

The “look at me” gang strikes again, and again! I am convinced they are not even about open carry of sidearms anymore. They are all about them, them, and oh yeah, everybody look at me! Bob Owens sums up their selfishness

I’ve lost count of the number of restaurant chains that we we’ve lost the option to carry firearms in nationally because of the actions of self-absorbed long-gun open carriers in Texas taking firearms into business establishments. Their stated goal is either to “normalize” long gun open carry, or to make the open carry of handguns possible.

The reality is that long gun open carry of loaded weapons into business establishments has never been normal in any relatively settled area of the United States in the United States. Even in colonial times you were required discharge your loaded weapon before entering meeting halls and taverns. Such a volley discharge by the Lexington militia at a fortuitous moment caused the British to release Paul Revere after he’d been captured during his night ride to call out the militia on April 19, 1775, prior to the arrival of the column of Regulars.

These open carry groups are also souring the possibility of Texas legalizing handgun open carry. Both the Democrat and Republican candidates for the governorship of Texas have come out in favor of legalizing handgun open carry. The legislature was leaning that direction. So what do these groups do? They parade around in public with long-guns at the low-ready or slung across their backs at a diagonal so that they are constantly muzzle sweeping one another, or are pointing their muzzles at concrete… a decidedly non-safe direction. Their actions are making it less likely that such a law will pass.

Shannon Watts and Moms Demand Action from Mayors in Everytown have not accomplished anything as a group. Every citizen control “victory” they can claim comes as the result of these open carry groups carrying firearms in an unsafe manner into business establishments that simply want to sell their products, and who don’t want to be part of a poorly executed Quixotic campaign.

The results don’t lie.

Business establishment long-gun open carriers are the most effective gun control groups in the United States at this moment.

If these groups really want to help, they need to stop their grandstanding. Frankly, the idea of a group of 8 or 10 people ALL carrying rifles sitting down in a restaurant to eat is idiotic and impractical. And, as Owens notes, they are not safe with those guns in too many instances. Here is your reality check. If you walked into my business, I, as a passionate advocate of gun rights would boot your asses out. So, stop the damned grandstanding, get your heads out of your asses, stop acting out every negative stereotype Moms Demand Action put out there, and if you care one damn bit about gun rights STOP HELPING! Unless of course Bloomberg is paying y’all to make gun owners look like ass hats. Frankly I am starting to wonder.

Indiana School Board uses common sense on defending students

Hat Tip to Bearing Arms for this story that is sure to drive gun control activists nuts

WHITE CO., Ind. (WLFI) – Administrators and school board members with the North White School Corporation can carry guns inside campus buildings beginning in July.

The North White Board of Trustees voted unanimously, 7-0, to approve the new policy on Monday. According to North White School Board President Shannon Mattix, the policy states guns may be carried inside campus buildings while school is in session and at school events.

Participants must pass two annual training sessions, one six-hour basic firearm training session, and up to 40 hours of crisis management and defensive tactics training. Those carrying guns are required to go through a psychological evaluation at least once a year.

Other policy requirements include the firearm must be concealed, semi-automatic, held in a Level Two or Three holster, and carried not stored in the building.

Mattix explained that in developing this policy, they wanted to rely on factual information and data and to eliminate emotions.

I like the stipulations, contrary to what gun grabbers say those in favor of arming teachers, concealed carry, etc believe in responsibility and safety, and I have always wanted armed teachers to receive extra training.

15 People Shot In Less Than 24 Hours In Rahm Emanuel’s Gun Control Haven

When will Liberals retire their stale talking points about guns?

I fully expect the Left to continue their war on guns and on self-defense as well. They are never sated in their quest to control people. And, I fully expect them to continue to make up stats and tell bad-faced lies about guns and gun owners, I mean it is not like they can rely on facts is it? But for God’s sake can they at least make up some new lies rather than beating the same tired, worn out talking points?

Hillary “What difference at this point does it make” Clinton, has spoken on guns.

Hillary Clinton told an audience of mental health professionals on Tuesday that the United States needs to rein in its gun culture or risk a world where insignificant disagreements could lead to shootings.

Asked about the mental health aspects of guns, Clinton said “I think we’ve got to rein in what has become an almost article faith that anybody can have a gun, anywhere, anytime. I don’t believe that is in the best interest of the vast majority of people.”

“We really have got to get our arms around it because at the rate we are going, we are going to have so many people with guns everywhere fully licensed, fully validated,” Clinton said, painting a picture of a country where small annoyances could lead to shootings.

Clinton, whose comments came during the question and answer portion at the end of her appearance, said because “we are living at a time when there is so much external stimulation and some much internal confusion in certain people,” it would be a bad idea to let people “go to bars with guns, let them go to schools with guns, let them go to church with guns.”

But Clinton also gave an olive branch to gun owners, adding “I think you can say that and still support the right of people to own guns.”

Sorry, I almost fell asleep reading that. Good grief, is the Left STILL trying to sell the “Wild West shootouts” and “blood in the streets” lies? There is simply NO, I mean NO statistical data that supports Hillary’s specious claims. Everything, not counting the “facts” the gun grabbers make up of course proves that violent crime goes DOWN when concealed carry laws, or stand your ground laws are passed. Yes, I know, the Left tries to say that homicide rates increase after stand your ground laws are passed. However, they leave out that it is justifiable homicides A.K.A. self-defense cases that go up. There are no Wild West scenarios, and the number of defensive gun uses outnumber the number of criminal uses of guns. Sorry, Hillary, but the “science” here? It really is settled. Now, for goodness sake, stop telling your irresponsible lies, or at the very least be more original and make up new, fresh lies. Yes, we will still blow holes in these new lies, but at least we will have some variety for a change.

Poor Mayor Nanny!

Michael Bloomberg is finding out that no one likes a self-important asshole

If Bloomberg has revealed anything over the past few years, it’s that, despite lots of rhetoric about keeping firearms out of the hands of criminals, law-abiding gun owners are the true intended targets of his campaigns.

It’s for that reason that more than 160 mayors, according to a Washington Examiner report, deserted Mayors Against Illegal Guns — a 15% drop in mayor-members — after they realized they were misled.

Mayor after mayor, the accounts were the same.

Rockford, Ill., Mayor Larry Morrissey: “The reason why I joined the group in the first place is because I took the name for what it said: against ‘illegal’ guns. The focus should not be against law-abiding citizens. We should be focusing our enforcement on folks who have no right to carry a gun, concealed or otherwise.”

Poughkeepsie, N.Y. Mayor John Tkazyik: “It did not take long to realize that MAIG’s agenda was much more than ridding felons of illegal guns . . . MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.”

Sioux City, Ia., Mayor Bob Scott: “They’re not just against illegal guns, they’re against all guns.”

Danbury, Ct., Mayor Mark Boughton: “I joined because I believe enforcement of existing gun laws is preferable to creating new gun laws. It is clear in recent months, however, that Bloomberg’s mission has changed from law enforcement to simply increasing gun regulations.”

Those assertions are undeniable. Bloomberg has pressured municipalities all over the country to ban assault weapons and “high-capacity magazines” (even though assault weapons account for only 2% of nation-wide gun crime); he has suggested police officers strike until lawmakers meet his demands (a more reckless and unsafe proposal I’ve never heard); and he’s targeted the free speech of law-abiding citizens by insisting Facebook censor gun-themed fan pages.

At Least 43 Shot, 5 Killed Over Weekend In Rahm Emanuel’s Gun-Control Haven

43 Shot, 5 Killed, In Spate Of Weekend Violence In Chicago – NBC News

.

.
At least 43 people have been shot, five of them fatally, in a spate of violence across Chicago since Friday.

The latest homicide took place around 12:25 a.m. Sunday in the 3500 block of West Fullerton Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood.

A 21-year-old woman was in the back seat of a vehicle driving eastbound on Fullerton when a group of men standing on the sidewalk shouted gang slogans and opened fire on the car.

The woman was transported to Norwegian American Hospital with wounds to the left side of her head and was later pronounced dead, according to authorities.

On Saturday, a 17-year-old boy was fatally shot when a man dressed in all black approached him in the 5500 block of West North Avenue and fired at him from behind. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.

Less than an hour earlier, a 22-year-old man was fatally shot in the chest in the 5400 block of South Winchester Avenue in the Back of the Yards neighborhood.

Police said the man was pronounced dead at the scene and a 19-year-old woman who was shot in the leg was taken in stable condition to Mount Sinai Hospital.

The two were shot when someone fired into a home from outside, striking them both.

Police are conducting a homicide investigation.

On Friday, a 32-year-old woman was fatally shot in her driveway in the 1300 block of West 116th Street as she returned home from an anti-violence fundraiser.

Officers reported hearing shots fired around 10:30 p.m. and the woman, identified as Leonore Draper, was found in her car with wounds to her arm and chest. She was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.

Earlier Friday, an off-duty police officer shot his neighbors, one of them fatally, after one neighbor shot and injured the officer’s wife in an argument that stemmed from a long-running feud between the two couples.

Eight people were injured in overnight shootings Sunday.

• A 23-year-old woman shot around 6 a.m. in the 4700 block of South Loomis Boulevard. Police did not have any further details about how the woman was shot, but said she suffered two wounds to the thigh and was in stable condition at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center.

• Around 3:20 a.m. a 21-year-old man was shot while standing on a sidewalk in the 4700 block of North Drake Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood. Police said a silver sedan drove by and fired shots at the man, who was transported to Swedish Covenant Hospital by someone with a wound to his left shin.

• Less than two hours earlier, two 21-year-old men were shot in the 2500 block of West Division Street. The two were on a sidewalk when a large group of men approached on foot and someone in the group fired at the them, police said. One victim was shot in the left shoulder and taken to John H. Stroger Jr., Hospital of Cook County in stable condition. The other victim was taken to Norwegian American Hospital with a wound to the right foot and was expected to be treated and released.

• Around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, a 38-year-old woman was shot while sitting in a parked car in the 10000 block of South Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, officials said. The woman told police a silver sedan drove by and fired shots at the vehicle she was in. She suffered a graze wound to the left shoulder and refused treatment, police said.

• About 40 minutes earlier, a 24-year-old man was shot while driving near West 32nd Street and South Racine Avenue. The man was stopped at a stop sign when a man fired at him from the sidewalk. The victim drove himself to Stroger Hospital in stable condition with a wound to the right forearm, police said.

• Just before 9:30 p.m., a 16-year-old boy was shot in the 500 block of East 47th Street in the city’s Bronzeville neighborhood. The teen was walking on the sidewalk when two men exited a vehicle and fired shots at him. The teen was taken to Mercy Hospital with a wound to his left foot.

• Around 4:30 p.m., a 36-year-old man was shot while standing on the 7900 block of South Vernon Avenue. The man said he heard shots and felt pain. He suffered wounds to his wrist and hip and was listed in good condition at Jackson Park Hospital, where he was expected to be treated and released.

Mayor Statist is back

Oh Bloomberg, he just does not quit does he? No matter how often he fails, no matter how wrong he is, he just keeps writing checks

Bloomberg, bless his heart, seems convinced that the real problem is his marketing, and so he’s sinking $50 million dollars to launch yet another citizen control group, Everytown for Gun Safety.

In his first major political investment since leaving office, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced plans to build a nationwide network aimed at curbing gun violence and battling the National Rifle Association, according to published reports.

Bloomberg told the New York Times that he is planning to spend $50 million this year to establish the grassroots gun control lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety.

The new organization will encompass two other Bloomberg-funded gun control groups – Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America – and will first take aim at expanding background checks for gun buyers both at the state and national levels, according to the Times.

Everytown for Gun Safety will borrow from some of the NRA’s field operation tactics to grow influence, targeting mothers and other women that might be swayed on gun issues. The group has already targeted 15 states across the country with varying views on gun control, with the goal of recruiting 1 million new supporters.

Bloomberg’s Achilles heel is that he thinks that a) authoritarianism is the solution for every problem, and b) that throwing more money at the issue is how to make authoritarianism palatable. What he doesn’t seem to be able to grasp despite his considerable business success is that many and perhaps most Americans aren’t driven primarily by money, but by a love of liberty and individual sovereignty.

I would argue that Bloomberg’s weakness is his insatiable thirst for power over the lives of others. He cannot stand to be told no, or to have anyone differ from him. He knows best for you, and damn you if you dare disagree. Bloomberg despises freedom, and individualism because he is a Statist. Therefore he will spend any amount of money, and tell as many lies, and intimidate in any way he can to dictate your choices to you! He is  a dangerous man, never forget that. We must never underestimate his fanatical hunger for power. If given his way, he would dictate what we eat, drink, how we raise our children, and completely strip away any right to self-defense.

Idaho Officially Nullifies All Future Federal Gun Control Laws

Victory: Idaho Just Officially Nullified All Future Federal Gun Control – Conservative Tribune

Last week, we reported that the state of Idaho passed emergency legislation that would take effect immediately that nullifies all future federal gun control in the state. That bill was just signed into law by Governor Butch Otter. This is a huge victory for the Second Amendment.

.

.
Idaho joins states like Arizona, Missouri, Kentucky, and others who have passed or are considering substantive legislation that would nullify federal gun control by outlawing it in the state outright or preventing the state from cooperating with the feds in the enforcement of gun control measures.

The strategy the Idaho law and similar laws use is one that uses the anti-commandeering doctrine, which was set down by the Supreme Court to protect the Tenth Amendment by preventing Congress from commandeering state officers in the enforcement of a federal regulatory scheme.

From Ben Swann:

On Thursday, Idaho Governor Butch Otter (R) signed a bill, which would effectively nullify future federal gun laws, by prohibiting state enforcement of any future federal act relating to personal firearms, a firearm accessories or ammunition.

S1332 passed the house by a vote of 68-0 and the senate by a vote of 34-0. Alaska and Kansas have also passed similar laws.

Erich Pratt, Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America, cheered the governor’s action. “By signing this nullification bill into law, Idaho has joined an elite class of states that are telling the feds to ‘get lost’ – especially when it comes to unconstitutional gun control infringements”

The key text of the legislation provides that:

any official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision thereof who knowingly and willfully orders an official, agent or employee of the state of Idaho or a political subdivision of the state to enforce any executive order, agency order, law, rule or regulation of the United States government as provided in subsection (2) of this section upon a personal firearm, a firearm accessory or ammunition shall, on a first violation, be liable for a civil penalty not to exceed one thousand dollars ($1,000) which shall be paid into the general fund of the state…

This is fantastic news. States are openly rebelling against federal gun control, and their refusal to cooperate in enforcing it will render it ineffective in many areas. The feds need states to participate in the enforcement of these kinds of laws, because there simply aren’t enough federal resources to do so. If we get enough states on board with this type of legislation, we can beat back federal gun control just by default.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree with Idaho’s attempt to nullify federal gun control. Let’s fight back.

New Jersey CEO Warns State Assembly “We Will Not Comply” With Proposed Gun Control Law (Video)

New Jersey CEO Takes A Stand Over Proposed Gun Control Bill, Warns Lawmakers ‘We Will Not Comply’ Just Like Connecticut – The Blaze

.

.
A New Jersey man warned a State Assembly committee last week that he and other gun owners in the state “will not comply” with a proposed gun control bill to further limit magazine capacity.

During the March 13 hearing, Anthony P. Colandro told lawmakers that the proposed bill would turn law-abiding gun owners into criminals overnight. Colandro is the CEO of Gun for Hire, a firearm training center in New Jersey, and expressed concern regarding what the law could do to his business.

“I own, personally, approximately $30,000 of guns, contrary to what Cease Fire New Jersey Says, that they do not make 10-round magazines for,” he explained. “I also have in my possession at my range over $20,000 of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.”

He then asked the chairman of the committee who exactly would be compensating him if the items suddenly become illegal.

“Have you guys seen what is happening in Connecticut right now?” he continued. “One million gun owners in New Jersey are also gonna say, like our brothers and sisters in the north, that we will not comply. And I can tell you here and now, I will not comply.”

.

.
The bill currently under consideration, known as A2006, bans all magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. The proposed law exempts firearms with .22 caliber tubular magazines.

After more than three hours of testimony last Thursday, the Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee voted 5-3 to advance the bill. The bill then cleared Democratic-controlled Assembly on Thursday with a 46-31 margin. A version of the proposed law has been introduced in the state Senate but has yet to come up in a committee for a vote.

As TheBlaze reported last week, Shyanne Roberts, a 9-year-old competitive shooter, also appeared before the New Jersey Law and Public Safety Committee last week speak against the proposed law.

“I have worked and trained very hard to get to the level I am at and if A2006 becomes law, I will be forced to choose between giving up on a very great and promising future in a sport that I love or asking my dad to move to another state,” she said. “I will not be giving up my sport.”

Will Connecticut enforce their draconian gun ban bill?

We said registration always leads to confiscation……..

All eyes seem to be on Connecticut right now.

Fox News is reporting that the government of Connecticut announced yesterday that it sent out letters to gun owners that failed to register the modern sporting rifles made illegal by a blatantly unconstitutional “assault weapon” ban:

Connecticut officials are urging owners of now-illegal assault weapons and large capacity ammunition magazines to relinquish them to the police or make them permanently inoperable.

The Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection announced Friday it had sent a letter to owners who had failed to register the items by a Jan. 1 deadline, part of last year’s gun control law. Officials offered advice on what to do now with the weapons and magazines.

The letter says gun owners are in compliance with the new state law if their items are no longer in Connecticut or were sold to an authorized gun dealer.

The majority of gun owners refused to comply with this bill, and rightfully so. The question is now how far will Connecticut go? Are they willing to make felons out of these folks? Are they going to do the right thing and repeal this foolish law? As I said, all eyes are on Connecticut now. And we will soon know if Chris Christie REALLY wants to be president

Parasitic Gun Control Activist Busted For Bringing Pistol Into Elementary School

Gun Control Activist Swears He Forgot He Was Carrying Gun While Visiting School – Daily Caller

A Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who is well known locally for pushing for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law has been arrested for – wait for it – carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.

.

.
The arrested gun-control advocate, Dwayne Ferguson, caused quite a scene at Harvey Austin Elementary School, reports local CBS affiliate WIVB.

At about 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, police acted on a pair of anonymous 911 tips. A battalion of cops quickly swarmed the school. The brigade included over a dozen squad cars, the SWAT team and K9 units. The Erie County Sheriff’s Air One helicopter and what appears to be an armored vehicle also turned up.

The school was immediately placed on lockdown. Parts of two streets were closed.

About 60 students who were still on campus participating in after-school activities were funneled to the cafeteria.

Cops searched the school room by room and would not let parents on campus until they were satisfied that no shooting threat existed.

Ferguson, 52, was at Harvey Elementary because he works as a mentor in an after-school program for disadvantaged students.

He said he frequently carries a pistol. He has a license but the license does not matter under the strict state law Ferguson helped pass.

Among much else, the 2013 law, deemed New York’s SAFE Act, made it a felony to carry a gun on school property, according to The Buffalo News.

While it was always illegal to carry a gun on school grounds, the new law bumped the crime from a misdemeanor to a felony in response to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The community activist has claimed that he forgot he was carrying his gun in a felony gun-free zone he helped create.

Rev. James E. Giles, Ferguson’s friend and the president of Buffalo’s Back to Basics Outreach Ministries, vouched for this claim.

“I’m sure Dwayne went into the school not thinking he had the gun on him,” Giles told The Buffalo News.

Giles said Ferguson even asked police on the scene what was going on.

“Dwayne’s reaction was to get his kids – he had about 50 of them – and make sure they were safe,” Giles explained.

Ferguson was eventually busted when police were patting down the people at the school so they could evacuate. He was wearing the gun in a holster. Throughout the duration of the terrifying lockdown, the community activist never bothered to tell the cops that he was carrying a gun.

“He had opportunities,” local chief of police Kevin Brinkworth told the News.

“I will say he had no ill intent to harm these students,” Brinkworth noted. “I don’t know why he had it on him.”

Ferguson is the head of the Buffalo chapter of MAD DADS, a national group that opposes gang violence and illegal drugs. MAD DADS is an acronym for Men Against Destruction Defending Against Drugs and Social Disorder.

The father of three also belongs to Buffalo Peacemakers, a separate anti-violence group that stands athwart gang-related crime.

Still more, Ferguson is something of a professional vigilante in Buffalo. He can be seen patrolling local malls and city streets in an effort to stop gang violence.

Ferguson now faces two felony charges of criminal gun possession.

He faced his first court hearing on Friday, reports local NBC affiliate WGRZ. Prosecutors had asked Judge Jeanette Ogden to set bail at $10,000. However, Ogden allowed Ferguson to walk out of her courtroom on his own recognizance, citing his community involvement and his squeaky clean criminal record.

Ogden did order Ferguson to submit all of his guns to authorities and to stay away from Harvey Austin Elementary until his criminal case has been resolved.

Cuban Refugee Manuel Martinez Schools Leftist Lawmakers On The Dangers Of Gun Control (Video)

Manuel Martinez, Fled Castro’s Cuba, Destroys Oregon Lawmakers Gun Control Attempt (Video) – Gateway Pundit

WOW! This was the best defense of the Second Amendment EVER!

Manuel Martinez, who narrowly escaped Cuba in 1962 after being imprisoned for opposing Fidel Castro, passionately defended the Second Amendment in front of Oregon’s Senate Judiciary Committee.

Martinez passionately compared the state lawmakers’ attempts to pass gun control to his past in Marxist Cuba.

“You say you want to protect the people. You’re not going to protect nobody… A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50 years ago. I didn’t buy it… This is Marxism, plain and clear. Come on, tell me I’m wrong, I’ve been there when you were learning how to walk… A very powerful man put me in chains… You sell THIS to the people who do not have self respect, self-determination. And they are weak. And they love to be subjugated. And be dependent on the government. You don’t sell that to me sir. This is TREASON. This is an ASSAULT on the dream of the founding fathers. They didn’t die for THIS. I come here, for years, talking about what happened, while you people, sink to this.”

Moms Demand Action trying to silence Dana Loesch

Don’t you love how the Left defines freedom of speech? Donald Douglas is standing with Dana So is Stacy McCain

Demonizing and marginalizing dissent is what liberals do routinely. They pick an issue — from atomic energy to abortion, from global warming to gay marriage — and declare that people who disagree with them are dangerous ignorant extremists.

So now a gun-control group called Moms Demand Action is trying to give Dana Loesch the “extremist” treatment. Dana has volunteered to go into the lion’s den — appearing as the sole pro-Second Amendment voice on ABC’s The View — and these liberals evidently consider it intolerable that anyone in favor of the right to keep and bear arms should appear on a major broadcast network program.

Panic reaction at Media Matters: “The decision to give Loesch a national platform on a highly-rated television show is troubling . . .”

Translation: “OMG! An outspoken conservative woman on national TV! This cannot be permitted! No dissent allowed!”

Silencing dissent is what the Left does. They do not have the facts, so they must demonize their opponents. More on #istandwithdana at Twitchy

Make sure to tune in Monday as I guest co-host @TheViewTV ! Looking forward to joining the ladies and dishing on topics.

Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 02, 2014

Moms Demand Action isn’t quite demanding that Dana Loesch be barred from appearing on ABC’s “The View,” but the gun control group is certainly making its displeasure about Loesch’s Monday appearance known. Shannon Watts is the founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and has been tweeting and retweeting opposition to “hate monger” and “pro-gun extremist” Loesch.

Disappointed @theviewtv having #DanaLoesch on. @JennyMcCarthy@WhoopiGoldberg @SherriEShepherd need #gunsense – I’ll watch @TheTalk_CBS—

@theviewtv @DianeSawyer After such good work with #2020YoungGuns, why would #Disney #ABC put hate monger #DanaLoesch on show? #MomsDemand—

Many more stupid tweets at the link, typically from people who are incredibly ignorant about guns, self-defense, and the number of crimes stopped by armed citizens, Take that last tweet above

Never mind the fact that @nhdogmom labels Dana a “hate monger” a charge with no basis in fact, Focus on her championing of the ABC special Young Guns as good work, In fact it was, at best shoddy work meant to panic people about kids and guns

ABC News ran their anti-gun propaganda feature “Young Guns” last night in an attempt to convince their audience that their elementary school aged children were at a high risk for gun accidents and death.

But that simply isn’t the truth.

As the Crime Prevention Research Center shows, the numbers are heavily skewed by gang violence from older teens.

ABC News is planning multiple hours of coverage on Friday that is only designed to incorrectly scare people into not owning guns. While the Pediatrics Journal study that they are emphasizing here has problems, ABC News doesn’t even come close to accurately reporting what the study does show. The ABC News report constantly talks about the significant risk of guns to children generally, recommending that people ask their neighbors about gun ownership. Their report makes it look like these accidents involve young children, but the numbers are driven by 17, 18, and 19 year olds, overwhelmingly blacks in drug gangs.

About 80% of the firearm injuries are related to violent crime, not accidents or self harm. Requiring your average family to lock up their guns or to scare them into not owning them, isn’t going to stop incidents involving violent crime or drug gangs. Indeed, disarming people will make this problem worse.

Moms Demand Action really ought to inform themselves about guns and crime stats. That will involve thinking rather than emoting but if they try really hard…….

Trayvon Martin’s mother still playing her Absolute Moral Authority Card

She has no problems, it would seem, with cashing in on her loss, or with spreading Left Wing Propaganda either

Jan. 16 (UPI) – Sybrina Fulton, who’s 17-year-old son Trayvon Martin was shot by neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman in 2012, visited the University of Utah on Thursday to discuss racial profiling.

Hundreds attended the Martin LutherKing Week event, in which Fulton said that an “upside” to her son’s death was the “opportunity to save someone else’s child.”

“Don’t think for one second racial profiling doesn’t happen. Don’t think for one minute even in your community of Salt Lake City it doesn’t happen,” she said. ”Racism is still alive. Racial profiling is still alive. Injustice is still alive.”

Fulton said that the circumstances of her son’s death — he was wearing a hoodie when Zimmerman shot him — applied all over the country.

“There should not become a time when we are comfortable with burying our children,” Fulton said. “What happened many miles away in Sanford should be uncomfortable for you.”

“Is it the hoodie that really made the difference? Or the color of his skin?” she asked. “And if by one second, just by one mere second, we think that it’s the color of his skin, then something is wrong with America.”

“”At the end of the day, it’s not about Trayvon. It’s about the person that felt he was suspicious,” she added.

Actually it WAS all about your son. He attacked someone, and was in the process of pounding his head on a sidewalk when he was shot. And, no, your son was NOT racially profiled, and NO, Florida’s Stand Your Ground Law did not play a role. But, of course, you do not mind travelling the country, lying through your teeth in the pursuit of trampling the right of self-defense.

Noted gun grabber to retire from Congress!

No, not Sheila Jackson-Lee, but, anti self defense advocate Carolyn McCarthy

Carolyn McCarthy is retiring:

“I have decided not to seek re-election to the United States Congress in 2014,” McCarthy said in a statement.  “I am forever grateful to my constituents for giving me the privilege of representing them in Congress for the past 18 years.  As I plan for the next chapter of my life, I look forward to resuming my role as a citizen activist for the causes and principles that are so close to my heart.”

McCarthy spent nine terms in office as a Congresswoman from New York, attempting to strip away the gun rights of all Americans. McCathy’s hatred of guns came after her husband was killed and her son was wounded by Jamaican racist Colin Ferguson in what became known as the Long Island Railway 

 

Sarah Silverman, today’s Marxist Moron

Is there anything more pathetic than a buffoon who thinks they are smarter than everyone else? How about a comedian that thinks they are funny when in fact they are just crass and obscene? Sarah Silverman has both of those bases covered

 

Comedian Sarah Silverman sent out a tweet today equating gun owners with “gun boners” and suggesting they should listen to the Pope, as if he is pro gun control.

Twitchy.com carried her tweet

Hey gun boners–at least listen to THE POPE. RT @Pontifex How much suffering & devastation has the use of arms carried in its wake.

She was referencing the following September 2 tweet from Pope Francis:

How much suffering, how much devastation, how much pain has the use of arms carried in its wake.

What Silverman failed to catch is that the Pope’s tweet was a statement drawn from a larger set of remarks about the conflict in Syria. 

Anyone who reads the Pope’s statement in context will see that he was not even bemoaning guns or gun ownership per se, but the use of chemical weapons against defenseless Syrians–especially children. 

Sarah, you ignorant woman, you ought to broaden your horizons a bit. Try getting to know some gun owners. Try reading some real stats on the number of times guns are used in self-defense. Hell, Sarah, you might even want to try some of that tolerance you Liberals always whine about.
