On May 4, actress Melissa Joan Hart appeared in a new gun control PSA in which she suggests gun control should be a topic of causal conversation.
She also uses the PSA to exclaim that she is “a member of Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America.”
Breitbart News previously reported that Hart had signed on as spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action’s newest gun control campaign, and now we see she is not simply a spokeswoman but a member of the gun control group as well.
In the May 4 PSA Hart talks about how eagerly friends talk about receiving “a promotion at work” or how quick kids talk “when they ace a test.” In the same way, she says we need to talk about gun control; and this includes talking to friends and neighbors about locking up their guns.
Securing firearms is one thing, mine are kept where my little niece cannot get to them, but they are not stored so as to be useless should I ever need them, as this PSA suggests
In another part of the PSA, Hart appears beside a man in a police uniform who takes the magazine out of handgun, locks the magazine in a safe, then runs a cable lock through the gun, rendering it inoperable. He then hands the key for the cable lock to Hart. As he does this, Hart talks about the importance of locking up the gun and ammo separately.
She never once explains what a father is supposed to do when an intruder enters the house at 3 a.m. but the gun is locked in one closet and the ammo in another. Nor does she venture a guess on what a single mom is supposed to do when she and the kids get home from a movie, only to find sexual predators in the house waiting for them.
Does the mother ask the sexual predator if he can give her a few minutes to freshen up, then use that time to unlock the gun in one room and run to another to unlock the ammo?
It is unnecessary to lock you gun up in one safe, and then the magazine in another, and maybe the bullets somewhere else. That is not safe, in fact it renders your firearm basically useless should someone break in. Seems that the Cult of Gun Control is not about gun safety at all, but about disarming us by any means they can utilize. As I keep saying the war on gun rights IS a war on self-defense.
On April 30, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam (R) signed Senate Bill 1110 – a bill which bars state cooperation with federal gun control laws.
Sponsored by Senator Richard Briggs (R-Dist. 7), SB 1110 “prohibits the use of any public funds, personnel, or property to enforce any federal law or regulation that regulates the ownership, use, or possession of firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories.”
SB 1110 passed the house by a margin of 74 to 20 and the senate by a margin of 24 to 1.
According to the Tenth Amendment Center, the measure was “originally introduced in the House as HB1341 by Rep. Terri Lynn Weaver.” At that time, Weaver said, “I’m from the cut that there is no need for Washington D.C. to be the end all and be all with regards to the regulatory world. We should respect our 10th Amendment and shift the power back to the states and that’s what House Bill 1341 does.”
What was true for HB 1341 is also true for SB 1110.
This law comes on the heels of another blow to federal gun control signed by Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) last week. On April 29, Pence signed Senate Bill 433 – a bill that “repeals the prohibition against manufacturing, importing, selling, or possessing a sawed-off shotgun.”
SB 433 addresses the ban on short barreled, modified shotguns and will also present a challenge to the federal government’s “title II firearm” policy requiring registration fees and transfer records each time the firearm changes hands.
I will say this, you can make your own mind up. There can be no doubt where our natural rights are concerned. The right to self-defense, and the right to buy, own, and carry guns is part of our Bill of Rights for that reason. Unless someone has a consistent record on defending those rights, I can not truly support them. And, sorry, but Ben Carson said what he said, and that statement made clear he does not understand what a natural right is
Now, he has, in my view, made it worse by sounding like a typical politician
In the aforementioned conference call, he walked back his statements made on the Glenn Beck show and seems pretty adamant about it.
Carson said on the conference call, “Perhaps I didn’t convey it appropriately. I wanted to convey that, you know, I’ve lived in urban areas. I’ve worked in urban areas. I’ve seen a lot of carnage, and I’d prefer a situation where the kinds of weapons that create that kind of carnage don’t fall to the hands of criminal elements or insane people.
“But that is secondary to the desire to always defend the Second Amendment.”
He said that if elected, “under no circumstances” would he “allow a bureaucrat to remove any law-abiding citizen’s rights for any kind of weapon they wanted to protect themselves,” including semi-automatic and fully automatic firearms, Bloomberg reported.
So, can we trust him> One of the appealing things about Dr. Carson was that he was NOT a politician, now though, he sounds very much like a politician doing damage control.
Worst AG ever? YEP!
If there’s one thing that Eric Holder regrets during his time as attorney general for the United States, it’s his failure to press through a Second Amendment crackdown on the heels of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead, he said.
“I think the inability to pass reasonable gun safety laws after the Newtown massacre is something that weighs heavily on my mind,” Mr. Holder said during an interview with CNN.
He was speaking of the White House push to pass a federal background check mandate for all commercial gun sales, as well as an outright ban on so-called assault weapons and large-capacity ammunition magazines, in the wake of the December 2012 school tragedy.
Assault weapons is an invented term, that describes rifles that “look scary” or that look like military style rifles. they are, in fact just rifles, and are almost never used in crime, so banning those would not have had any impact on criminals. The same is true of banning “high-capacity” magazines. Such bans would have zero impact on criminals. Such laws WOULD, however, be used to ban many popular handguns and rifles that ARE used in hundreds of thousands of defensive gun uses by law-abiding Americans every year. And such laws would be used to pave the way for more restrictive laws.
The last of the legislative efforts to fail was a universal background check law that couldn’t make it out of the Democrat-controlled Senate. President Obama then announced a slew of executive actions to curb gun rights.
But Mr. Holder still reflected over the stronger legislation that never did pass.
“And the thought that we could not translate that horror into reasonable — I mean, really reasonable gun safety measures that were supported by the vast majority of the American people is for me something that I take personally as a failure,” he said, The Hill reported. “And something that I think we as a society should take as a failure — a glaring failure that I hope will ultimately be rectified.”
Holder lies through his teeth when he claims most Americans support such laws. Most OPPOSE such idiotic steps that do nothing but ban popular weapons that tens of millions of Americans own, and that millions have used in self-defense.
Breitbart’s AWR Hawkins suggests that Michael Bloomberg may be giving up on gun control and going back to running his business:
With gun control failing nationally, The New York Times reports that Michael Bloomberg is heading back to private business at Bloomberg L.P.
This comes after he dumped $150,000 into the August 12th Milwaukee County Sheriff’s race in an attempt to beat Sheriff David Clarke’s “conservative pro-gun policies.” Clarke won. Bloomberg lost.
It also comes after his gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety aired a video meant to justify firearm confiscation for women’s safety, but which inadvertently made the case for women to own guns to protect themselves. Breitbart News reported that after a female panel reviewed the commercial on ABC’s The View, three of the four panelists came away telling women to get a gun to protect themselves and their children.
Bloomberg’s return to private business also comes after the most visible gun control group he supports, Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America, only managed to convince five businesses–Chipotle, Jack in the Box, Chili’s, Sonic, and Target–to ask law-abiding citizens to come to their stores unarmed. Moms Demand was able to get a sixth business–Starbucks–to ask customers who openly carry firearms not to be so flamboyant about it.
On the other side of the coin, Breitbart News recently reported that 57,000 businesses were fighting this push by putting a “guns welcome” sign on their front doors.
I think that while AWR does a good job of chronicling some of the many high-profile failures of Bloomberg’s gun control agenda, I don’t see any barriers at all that would prevent the billionaire from both returning to work at Bloomberg L.P. and continuing to fund gun control initiatives.
I would agree with Owens here. Bloomberg will NEVER stop, he is dyed in the wool Statist. People like him obsess over controlling others, and nothing will ever stop their perverse desire to erase personal liberty. If Bloomberg were to have his say. You would eat and drink only what he deemed good for you. You would be stripped of your right to own firearms, and every last freedom would be open to Bloomberg’s approval. The fact is, and I am sure some will accuse me of being sensational or over the top here, that Bloomberg is evil. Note, I am not Ann Coulter, I do not write or say things to get attention, I say things I BELIEVE! How can I deem Bloomberg, and those like him evil. Well, our liberties come from one source, that source is God above. And anyone trying to stamp out those liberties is therefore directly opposing God. And that is undeniably evil. And, as one of our Founders reminded us, all evil needs to succeed is for good men to do nothing. So, it is easy to see that we must NEVER stop opposing the Bloombergs of the world.
Note, if anyone believes that those calling for gun laws that would disarm the people are not evil, allow me to submit that Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Castro, ISIS, and every other dictator or Totalitarian you can name used gun control to first disarm, then to enslave and butcher their people.
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.
