America´s deadliest city

Deeply affected by the massacre at Sandy Hook, gun owners in Camden, New Jersey, America´s deadliest town, turned in a record number of weapons in a buy back scheme over the weekend. 1,137 firearms including an elephant-gun were handed in on Friday and Saturday at two churches in the crime-plagued town as the ramifications of the mass child killings in Connecticut seemed to inspire residents to give up their arms. ´We heard that there were a number of gun owners on Saturday who had publicly said, in light of the situation that had just occurred in Connecticut,

And yet ... these deadly cities are still ... deadly. Funny how that happens.

Thugs steal guns, get money for them, then steal more guns. They aren´t giving up their favorites, that´s for sure.

If I lived in ´´America´s deadliest city´´ the last thing in the world I would consider is to turn in my personal firearm.

And the first consideration - I would move out of Camden...

Look at the photo. Looks like a pile of old, broken junk. Most are not worth the cash paid for them by the fascists... Oh, I mean "government."

One seriously wonders where AP and their UK counterpart get their facts...

According to US News - Camden NJ doesn´t make the top 10 list of ´dangerous cities´ in the US.

According to Yahoo News - it doesn´t even come in the top 25 in that category.

But hey - sure did sound nifty in the fairy tale version...

Well I´m sure this will result in the violent crime rate in Camden taking a BIG drop. Right? Right?

Photo caption quote, "It wasn´t just criminals who handed back their rifles and firearms to the police on Friday and Saturday - law abiding citizens did too" I highly doubt criminals stood in line and sold their weapons; the caption is a misleading lie.

$250.00 each for these old junkers ?

This is another ´cash for clunkers´ deal that helps thugs trade up to better and newer models.

Sorry I missed it.

I´m saving up for the new Barrett 50.

My wife will be thrilled when she finds it under the tree !

Sorry, folks. I saw some good firearms there. Right in the middle of the pile is a Henry (gold receiver) and even as a reproduction, worth about 1000 dollars. As an authentic Henry, worth more than a new car.
Buybacks accomplish nothing, however, than a false sense of accomplishment.

From what I could see, not all were junk---far from it. If they sorted thru they´d likely find many fully serviceable and collectible pieces.

Many of the arms there are not all that "pretty" but there was at least one each: M1891 Mosin-Nagant, SKS, M-1 carbine, Ruger 10-22, Winchester M-94 or Henry lever-action with brass plated or all brass receiver, to name only a few. These are not junk, but fun shooters and plinkers. My screen is small, so I could not identify many of the arms in the pile.

Took another, closer look. Also a US M-1898 Krag, and a WW-1 vintage German M-1898 Mauser, a Browning BAR semi-automatic rifle NOT to be confused with the BAR selective fire weapon used by the military from the ´30´s to the 60´s.

FTA: "´The more we unarm ourselves then maybe we can stop some of the violence that´s going on. If we don´t have the firearm then we can´t use the firearm,´ said James Green, who turned over his firearm."

"Stop violence by unarming ourselves"! I hereby nominate Mr. Green as idiot of the year

I wonder what Mr. Green will do if he should happen to cross paths with any of the bad guys who didn´t turn in their weapons. I´m sure once he explains his progressive stance on gun control to them they will let him pass on his way unmolested...

Old, broken and rusty guns turned in, i.e. overpriced scrap metal. If they were still functioning, they´d have been sold in the booming gun market. Feel good (for liberals) programs like this are always failures and a waste of money.

There were a few nice ones in the picture, but also some Jennings, Raven and at least one Mitchell. None are even suitable to hammer a nail. cash value new of those is about $60 each.

That´s easy to answer. Those old guns had serial numbers which could be traced back to them. Now they can get street guns with the serial numbers obliterated.

This reminds me of all the craziness after "Jaws" came out. I wonder if people will come to realize, just like sharks, firearms while dangerous have an important role to play. Sharks in the ecosystem of the oceans, firearms in the shaping and protection of liberty.

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

Democrats target 30 House
Republicans on immigration
Politico, by Seung Min Kim    Original Article

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/15/2014 2:28:49 PM     Post Reply
Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

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
