Or maybe she just figures the people she is trying to sell her gun control plans to are too stupid to do any research. That is OK Bob Owens has done it for them
Hillary Clinton’s campaign has released a “factsheet” entitled Hillary Clinton Believes It’s Time to Act on Gun Violence. The position paper establishes a radically left-wing, gun control agenda, while also establishing that the candidate and her staff don’t know or understand existing federal gun laws.
The most glaring example of the Clinton campaigns ignorance is it’s position on “straw purchasing.”
The Clinton campaign incredibly claims that straw purchasing is merely a “paperwork violation.”
Straw purchasing—defined as someone with a “clean” criminal record buying a firearm for a prohibited person—has been a federal felony for decades, with violators facing a sentence of up to ten years in a federal prison and a $250,000 fine for each violation.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) have long maintained a web site decrying this federal crime, Don’t Lie For the Other Guy.
Go read the rest, it gets worse. Take this gem
It is estimated that 20 to 40 percent of all gun purchases in America are conducted with no background check because federal law fails to cover unlicensed transfers online, at gun shows, and between anonymous strangers.
There really is no research to verify this “stat” But the Cult of Gun Control has a nasty habit of making “facts” up, so that is nothing new. To me, I always wonder how anyone can give a number of “unreported” incidents of any sort.
DUNCANVILLE (CBSDFW.COM) – A suspected robber is on the run and three others are in the hospital after a homeowner opened fire this afternoon.
“Almost like fire crackers but louder,” said neighbor Felicia White.
According to police, three men went into a home on the 6900 block of Rolling Creek Lane and attacked the homeowner. They said one of the men stole something from his house during the struggle before the homeowner grabbed a gun.
Neighbors reported hearing five gun shots. Police said that bullets hit all three suspected robbers. They said the suspects jumped into a Silver Dodge Avenger driven by a fourth man, and that the suspects stopped at an intersection by nearby Duncanville High School.
The three men who suffered gunshot wounds were arrested and taken to the hospital.
Again, we see how a gun can be a great equalizer from multiple assailants, or when used by a weaker victim attacked by a stronger assailant. Bob Owens notes this too
Last week I saw a tweet from a muscular 20-something martial arts fan in Washington D.C. who haughtily said that guns are for “losers.” He asserted that a “real man” could handle an opponent with empty hands.
That’s great… if you are young, healthy, trained in martial arts, and only face a single unarmed opponent willing to play by your dojo-approved rules.
In the real world, where bad guys aren’t interested in fighting fair, Mr. Ego wouldn’t fair so well.
How very true
And by intolerant, I mean they wish to grind to dust anything they deem offensive, you know, really bad stuff, like hoop skirts
Previous Rule 5 subject Blake Lively Surrenders To Gawker, Agrees To Delete Her Lifestyle And Fashion Site
In an interview with Vogue published today, actress and model Blake Lively revealed that she will be deleting her lifestyle site Preserve on October 9. The site has been decried again andagain for celebrating antebellum fashion and decor, and it seems like the criticism has pushed her to shuttering the site just a year after its launch.
Lively’s announcement has already spurred an article with this gleefulheadline from Gawker (emphasis added): “Blake Lively Finally Deletes Her Antebellum-Obsessed Lifestyle Site Preserve.” Gawker‘s triumphant tone on the news of Preserve‘s demise follows a year-long string of stories skewering Lively for — gasp — praising Southern culture.
Man, you can’t have that. You might start thinking southern folk are human or something, and you might have to grant them the right to think, speak, and maybe even vote. Who knows where that might lead?
Alongside photos of a woman dressed in clothes available for purchase on the site ran the following text:
“The term Southern Belle came to fruition during the Antebellum period (prior to the Civil War), acknowledging women with an inherent social distinction who set the standards for style and appearance. These women epitomized Southern hospitality with a cultivation of beauty and grace, but even more with a captivating and magnetic sensibility… While at times depicted as coy, these belles of the ball, in actuality could command attention with the ease of a hummingbird relishing a pastoral bloom.”
Keep in mind folks, nothing Lively is doing praises, or condones slavery, all her site is about is fashion, and lifestyle, not politics, not any endorsement of anything evil, or wrong. Yet this woman has been ravaged by the radical vermin of the Left. I wish I could say something to Blake Lively to stop her deleting this site. As Fritz explains, we MUST not surrender one inch to these Totalitarians
The reason that SJWs keep pushing such ridiculous shit is because it works. Each incremental attack on American culture as it exists is a win for them. We must resist at all costs.
A previously deported criminal alien from El Salvador who was convicted of kidnapping and raping a 12-year-old at gunpoint has made his way back to Texas across the porous U.S.-Mexico border. Agents with the U.S. Border Patrol arrested 34-year-old Rene Vladimir Escobar Bautista over the weekend near the border city of Hidalgo, court records obtained by Breitbart Texas revealed.
During an investigation into his background, authorities learned that Escobar had been deported in 2003 following a federal prison sentence on a child rape case. In 2001, federal authorities arrested Escobar who was 20-years-old at the time after he kidnapped a 12-year-old girl at gunpoint form her parents house in Long Island, New York and took her to North Carolina.
Court records from the New York case show that in 2002 rather than fight the case, Escobar took a plea deal and a judge found him guilty of the charge of taking a minor across state lines to engage in sexual activity. For that charge, Escobar was sentenced to spend 16 months in prison and then he was deported.
Escobar is just one of several criminal alien sexual predators who have been previously deported that have been arrested near the Texas border recently, as reported by Breitbart Texas.
In September, authorities arrested 22-year-old Jose Manuel Segovia near Roma Texas. Segovia had been previously convicted of attempted child rape.
Also in September, authorities arrested 47-year-old Pablo Medrano Banda who had been living in South Texas. Medrano had previously been convicted of indecency with a child by sexual contact.
In August, authorities arrested 23-year-old Mauricio Toto Xolo near the Texas border. Toto Xolo spent a year in prison following a 2010 rape conviction.
Also in August authorities arrested Joel Silva Duran, a 22-year-old convicted child rapist who had re-entered the country just months after having been deported.
Yes, yes, I know, Brooks is a “Conservative”, excuse me while I laugh for a moment, OK, that is better. Brooks is no more a Conservative than the buffoonish David Frum, but let me get to the reason I am giving Brooks this award
During appearances on NPR’s All Things Considered and PBS NewsHour on Friday, the Washington Post’s E.J. Dionne and the New York Times’ David Brooks eagerly touted President Obama’s blatant decision to “politicize” the Oregon school shooting to push gun control. Brooks and Dionne, who both openly endorse federal gun control legislation, eagerly cheered President Obama’s response to the Oregon shooting with Brooks, who self-identifies as a conservative telling NPR’s Robert Siegel that he “support[s] every gun control legislation you can imagine” even though he conceded that it won’t be “particularly effective.”
Well, did you catch that? Brooks supports all the federal gun control, even though he admits it will not do a damned thing to make anyone safer! How foolish can he be? But Brooks cares nothing about reducing crime, or the natural right of bearing arms. He does not give the first damn about those things. He cares not that as gun ownership has risen, and more and more American carry firearms, violent crime has fallen, and fallen a lot. Brooks could point that out, but he prefers to say stupid things to get praise from Leftists tools like E.J. Dionne
I’m very glad to hear what David said, and I think that there is something terribly wrong when the Republican Party and the conservative movement are so closely aligned institutionally with the gun lobby and those who say we cannot have any laws in our country. And I think the president’s statement calls that out.
See, Dionne, who spews the same lies as all lies about the “gun lobby” and the Republicans opposition to “any laws” as all the other Leftists spew, pats Brooks on the head and that is what really matters to Brooks.
In this world, there are predators, and they always pick the easiest prey. Mass shooters are no different!
Appearing on Monday’s CNN Newsroom with Carol Costello to discuss the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College, CNN Law Enforcement Analyst Harry Houck asserted that he had a “big problem” with the Oregon college being a “gun-free zone,” as he complained that such locations “lead lambs to the slaughter.”
He went on to declare that, “If my kid went to that school, I’d be talking to that administration” about why they do not allow any guns at the school. After praising the local police for an unusually fast response time, he began his commentary:
One big problem I have here is that this is a gun-free zone, all right, and the fact that, that maybe if security officers were there that were armed, they could have been able to engage this guy with their weapons, and maybe we could have prevented some of this carnage. But what we’ve learned and a lot of people have known throughout the years, is that gun-free zones, all they do is lead lambs to the slaughter. And that’s what happened here.
According to Portland State University Professor’s Rachel Sanders’ “White Privilege” course, “whiteness” must be dismantled if racial justice will ever be achieved.
The course description states that “whiteness is the lynchpin of structures of racial meaning and racial inequality in the United States” and claims that “to preserve whiteness is to preserve racial injustice.”
Students taking the course will “endeavor to make whiteness strange.” In order to make whiteness strange, the description says students must “interrogate whiteness as an unstable legal, political, social, and cultural construction.”
The course readings and concepts are drawn, in part, from the field of “critical race theory.” According toHarvard University, critical race theory “combine[s] progressive political struggles for racial justice with critiques of the conventional legal and scholarly norms which are themselves viewed as part of the illegitimate hierarchies that need to be changed.”
The Portland State University course description claims the construction of “whiteness” attaches material and psychological benefits to “individuals who identify, or are identified, as white.”
Students taking the course will also study the literary work of writer Ta-Nehisi Coates, who referred to the 9/11 first responders as “menaces of nature” in his latest book. In addition to reading the work of Mr. Coates, students will consider questions such as “[w]hat is white normativity, and how does it interact with other normative orders, including male normativity and heteronormativity?”
Go read it all, and be sickened at the absolute garbage that passes for “education” on college campuses today
So many, if not all of the “mass shooters” have been on antidepressants. Yet all we talk about is banning guns?
I truly believe there is a very real connection here. But, it may never be addressed by a media that only wants to hype up ratings, and politicians who only want an excuse to take away gun rights.
A message from people who could do without Obama’s anti-gun PR campaign
Will CNN, or any other media outlet have these Oregon shooting victims families on to tell their stories? Likely not, since these folks are opposed to gun control
Two female survivors and the family of one of the victims of the Umpqua Community College attack have come out stridently against gun control in the wake of the attack on the community college by a misfit fellow student* who committed suicide when men with guns showed up.
Cheyeanne Fitzgerald, 16, was badly wounded during Oregon shootings when a classmate opened fire, but neither she not her family want to lose their liberties in a knee-jerk “we must do something!” rush to pass gun control laws.
A teenager who was shot in the back during the Umpqua College shootings on Thursday has said she is still in favor of gun ownership – despite her narrow escape.
Cheyeanne Fitzgerald, 16, remains critically ill in hospital following an operation to remove one of her kidneys but her brother Jesse, speaking exclusively to DailyMail.com outside the Mercy Medical Center in Roseburg, says she is beginning to improve.
He also revealed that the family have discussed the issue of gun ownership and said that all – including Cheyeanne – remain opposed to controls.
‘We’re pro second amendment, pro guns,’ said Jesse. ‘My sister, my mother, my whole family are all in favor. We were talking about it in the hospital and none of us have changed our minds.’
The family of Quinn Cooper, who was killed in the attack, is also stridently against using the incident to infringe upon our rights.
In a statement released on Friday, his grieving family said their lives were ‘shattered beyond repair’ but said Quinn’s death should not be used as a means of advancing arguments in favour of gun control.
‘We are hearing so many people talk about gun control and taking people’s guns away,’ they said.
‘If the public couldn’t have guns it wouldn’t help since sick people like this will always be able to get their hands on a gun.
‘We need to be able to protect ourselves as a community and as a nation. Please don’t let this horrible act of insanity become about who should or shouldn’t have a gun.
‘Please remember the victims and their families. Please remember Quinn.’
Shelby Wambolt, who surrived the attack which killed friends and fellow students, alsodisagrees with calls for more gun control.
But Ms Wambolt said calls by President Obama for tighter regulations on gun ownership were misguided.
She said: “I know Obama got on the air and talked about gun control and I really don’t believe gun control is the problem.”
“What I’m hearing is that he (the gunman) did have mental illness and some issues but our town doesn’t have a lot of avenues for people who have mental illness.
Yep, do not expect that news special any time soon
In the current race to the absolute bottom, New York’s Daily News is keeping pace with the most appalling platforms for hysterical hard left propaganda. The tabloid’s take on the Oregon killings:
On October 3–two days after a gunman killed 10 at the gun free facilities on the Umpqua Community College campus–the New York Daily News called for the U.S. State Department to designate the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “terrorist organization.”
They based this request on their belief that national security faces a greater threat from armed citizens than from “foreign terrorists,” and they singled out the NRA as the bulwark preserving citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. …
To be on the State Department’s list of designated terror organizations a group has to be state-sponsored for terrorism–which the NRA is not. Moreover, they do not exist for terrorist reasons. Rather, they exist to defend the civil liberties protected by the Second Amendment.
Understand folks, to the Left I am a terrorist, and so is anyone else who owns firearms, especially if we are adamant about preserving that natural right
They remind readers that “murdered Americans killed by…lunatic gun slingers include terrified children calling for their mothers, teachers begging for the lives of their students, students begging for not just their own lives but the lives of their classmates, moviegoers looking for escape, bystanders cheering for athletes, athletes trying to be the best they can be as the worst we ever could have imagined struck them down in cold blood.”
Good Lord they have truly gone bat shit crazy, and yes, they are now even employing radical Communist agitators, because “Social Justice”
The downward digging won’t slow down soon, to judge from this new hire:
Daily Kos columnist and #BlackLivesMatter activist Shaun King has been hired by the New York Daily News to be their new social justice writer.
CNN reports that the newspaper announced the hiring move in a staff memo [Friday] that created this new role for King because of how impressed they said they were with King’s writings on issues like inequality and race relations.
No one should be shocked here, I mean really! Yes King is a fatuous liar, an agitator who takes joy in creating racial hatred and generally a boil on the ass of society, but, remember to the Left, truth, and morals are meaningless. So why wouldn’t they hire a bottom feeder like King?
There is so much to dislike about this program that I barely know where to begin criticizing it. To say that I don’t care for the show is an understatement. To say that it makes me want to gouge my own eyeballs out with a KFC spork is closer to the truth, and here’s why: IT DOESN’T EXPLAIN ANYTHING!
I thought the whole point of this series was to help us understand how and why the zombie apocalypse began. If that’s not so, what IS the point? It seems to me that its parent series has the bases covered when it comes to showing us clueless people trying to survive the chaos of walker-world. Do we really need to see more of the same here? I mean, can somebody please explain to me why we are supposed to care about another random group of people who know nothing about what’s going on, and afford us no insight into the genesis of the zombie pandemic?
Oh, and did I mention that this show’s main characters are dumbasses? They are, especially the female lead named Madison, who, in the second episode, attempts to have a conversation with what looks like an undead Barack Obama as it shambles toward her, drooling and glassy-eyed. Keep in mind that, by this point in the story, she and her boyfriend, Travis, have already been attacked by a zombie – which didn’t stop trying to eat them even after they ran it over with a truck.
As for Travis, later on, he too tries to have a nice, civil chat with a zombie that he finds feasting on the intestines of a dog in his living room. Then, when another character is forced to step in and save the fool’s life, he tries to stop his hero from killing the zombie. Now that I think about it, Travis is an even bigger dumbass than Madison, and she’s got only slightly more functioning brain cells than your average walker.
By the way, none of these people seem to care what’s going on outside of Los Angeles, which is where the story takes place. Thanks to ‘The Walking Dead’, we know that zombies are also popping up on the east coast – and assumedly everywhere else on the planet – yet, nobody in this story appears to be curious at all about what’s happening anywhere else. You’d think that at least one of them would be glued to their TV or computer, trying to find out anything they can about the scope of the problem while there’s still electricity available to them, but they don’t. Instead, everyone on the show behaves as if the advances in communications technology over the course of their lives have had only a peripheral influence on them.
And why is it that these folks didn’t immediately load up on food, water and weapons once they realized that the living dead were walking the Earth? After all, they were among the first to see a walker up close, so it would be reasonable for them to try and procure as many survival items as possible before stories of reanimated, flesh-eating corpses spread throughout the city, and all the stores got overrun. Frankly, the only character on the entire show who seemed to appreciate the gravity of the situation early on was a pimple-faced high school kid named Tobias who tried unsuccessfully to impress upon dim-witted Madison just how completely screwed everyone was. Sadly, he was only a minor character, and after the second episode, he was never heard from again.
Look, if I wanted to watch a show about unappealing idiots facing imminent, societal collapse, I’d tune into C-SPAN. Maybe this program’s creators don’t know it, but there are alternatives to their zombie franchise on TV these days, and those shows actually have entertaining characters and engaging plotlines. While the likes of ‘iZombie’ and ‘Z Nation’ may not have the production value of AMC’s original gore-fest, at least they’re trying to take the theme in a new direction. What does this program do, other than kill time before we get a chance to see Rick Grimes and his crew of seasoned zombie-killers again?
Personally, I would like to have seen this teleplay begin with a focus on hospital, morgue and funeral home employees in various states across the country, since those are the kinds of places where you’d expect zombies of this particular variety to first appear. It also would have made sense to introduce a few characters from some top-secret, government facility who either started the whole mess, or at least have some idea as to what caused it. Instead we are confronted with a bunch of people whose only distinguishing, common features are that they tend to be less intelligent and likeable than just about everyone on the first series.
Last night, the inaugural season of ‘Fear The Walking Dead’ came to an ugly, putrefied end, yet we still have no new information pertaining to the origin of the zombie apocalypse. The only thing we do know for sure is that Californians have little to no common sense, and their government is run by incompetent, lying douchebags. Thanks, AMC, that really clears things up for me. What’s next on the schedule, a prequel to ‘Mork and Mindy’ where Mork meets a chick named Mandy before finally settling down with the girl of his dreams?

Mike McDaniel destroys the Left’s empty rhetoric on “gun violence”
Originally posted on Stately McDaniel Manor:
The Second Amendment recognizes the right of the people to keep and bear arms. The Supreme Court’s Hellerdecision (decided June 26, 2008) affirmed that the Second Amendment does indeed speak of the rights of individuals. The court’s McDonalddecision (decided June 28, 2010) applied the Second Amendment to the states. Progressives love to cry “It’s–any decision, edict or law they favor– settled law; even discussing it is a distraction; move along.” Law doesn’t get much more settled than a fundamental, inalienable individual right specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights, affirmed as such and applied to the states by the Supreme Court, yet Progressives never fail to take or manufacture every possible opportunity to inveigh against it. Why?
The attack at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, Oregon has provided such an opportunity, just as the Sandy Hook Elementary attack in Newtown, CT provided an opportunity. The motivations…

Vice President Joe Biden was given a thunderous reception as the keynote speaker at the Human Rights Campaign’s annual dinner on Saturday — particularly after the audience urged him to take a shot at a presidential run.
Biden was interrupted early in his speech before hundreds of gay-rights activists, celebrities, and business leaders assembled in a cavernous, spotlight-studded convention center in Washington, D.C.
“A number of you have said to me over the last three or four years — ” he began. But he was suddenly cut off.
“You should run!” one audience member shouted. “Yeah, you should run!” another chimed in from across the room.
“No, they didn’t say that!” Biden laughed. “Oh, anyway. What was I saying?” he continued, as the audience cheered and applauded and the vice president grinned sheepishly.

The Obama administration tried to persuade Argentina to “provide the Islamic State of Iran with nuclear fuel” back in 2010.
President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner made these accusations during her speech this week to the General Assembly.
Nuclear fuel is a key component in nuclear weapons.
The United States mainstream media ignored this story for some odd reason?
UPDATE – Here is President Kirchner’s speech to the UN General Assembly.
(relevant accusation starts around the 19:45 minute mark)
When the Argentinians asked the administration to put it in writing – all communications ceased and the administration went silent.
The White House knew it would be unpopular with the American public.
President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner, a leftist, made the claim Monday at the United Nations.
Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner claimed Monday afternoon at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City that in 2010, the Obama administration tried to convince the Argentinians “to provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel,” reported Mediaite.
Kirchner said that two years into Obama’s first term, his administration sent Gary Samore, former White House Coordinator for Arms Control and Weapons of Mass Destruction, to Argentina to persuade the nation to provide Iran with nuclear fuel, which is a key component of nuclear weapons.
Kirchner’s full remarks are as follows, per the Argentine president’s official website:
“In 2010 we were visited in Argentina by Gary Samore, at that time the White House’s top advisor in nuclear issues. He came to see us in Argentina with a mission, with an objective: under the control of IAEA, the international organization in the field of weapons control and nuclear regulation, Argentina had supplied in the year 1987, during the first democratic government, the nuclear fuel for the reactor known as “Teheran”. Gary Samore had explained to our Minister of Foreign Affairs, Héctor Timerman, that negotiations were underway for the Islamic Republic of Iran to cease with its uranium enrichment activities or to do it to a lesser extent but Iran claimed that it needed to enrich this Teheran nuclear reactor and this was hindering negotiations. They came to ask us, Argentines, to provide the Islamic Republic of Iran with nuclear fuel. Rohani was not in office yet. It was Ahmadinejad’s administration and negotiations had already started.”…
Kirchner went on to say at the U.N. that when Samore was asked to provide the request in writing, all communications immediately ceased and Samore disappeared…
