NRA chief: Enforce
the existing gun laws

Washington Times, by David Sherfinski

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/23/2012 11:10:52 PM

The National Rifle Association does not plan to support any new gun control measures in the wake of the shooting rampage in Newtown, Conn., the head of the organization said Sunday, arguing that the government should vigorously enforce laws already on the books and reiterating the group’s push for more armed guards in schools as part of the solution. Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre, answering questions for the first time since the Dec. 14 shootings, said legislation to impose restrictions on clip sizes or bans on so-called assault weapons

Actually, most of the existing laws should be repealed as well; but maintaining the status quo is better than what the gun-grabbers want.

NRA representatives should go on ABC, NBC, PMSNBC and CNN and start publicly asking precisely WHY Barack Obama and Eric Holder were FORCING American firearms dealers to sell weapons to Mexican drug cartels, and WHY they are hiding behind "executive privilege" in refusing to answer questions, and WHY these media outlets have REFUSED to report on the story!

Obama REFUSES to address "Operation Fast & Furious." Let´s FORCE him to. If Wise King Barky wants to have a "national conversation" on gun control, let´s FORCE him to answer for his own administration´s actions!

More than three hundred people are DEAD because of Obama and Holder, almost TWELVE TIMES the number of dead in Sandy Hook, Connecticut....

WHY was Obama FORCING GUNS into the hands of Mexican drug cartels?

WHY is he hiding behind executive privilege?

WHY are these networks refusing to seek the TRUTH in this matter?

If the NRA is going to be persecuted for standing up for Second Amendment rights, Barack Obama and his Palace Guard in the MFM should be persecuted with the FACTS!

The gun laws aren´t aimed at criminals but average law abiding citizens.The worst shooting areas in the country all probably have assault weapons bans.

Just watch how many school districts go with LaPeirre´s advice rather than the gun grabbers.

To really figure out wy these mass shootings happen,they really need to dig into the background of the shooters. But they won´t because they want the gun to be a free standing criminal itself.


These last 3 shootings were done by weird looking people,that has to be a part of it.I don´t think it´s as hard to spot a loon as they make it out to be.

Almost all school shooters are on SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) a very powerful class of psychotropic drugs. The American Psychiatric Association keeps insisting it is the underlying condition and not the drug that is responsible. But the evidence to the contrary is becoming overwhelming. Misguided privacy laws prevent effective monitoring of patients. The MSM maintains a silence conspiracy because it will focus attention on something other than legal fire arms. Pathetic.

See, if the pro-regressive elites manage to outlaw everything, then everybody becomes a law-breaker. Just like that.

And of course law-breakers have to be - uh - corrected.

So, three hots and a cot await us all. Oh - and ´dependable´ medical care (for our homemade shiv wounds).

Those wacky elites! They´ll need special facilities for those of us who ... remember. Nurse! Time for her injection!

I´ve purposely stayed away from the Newtown story. I can´t bear the thought of those little children........

Anyway, the answer to someone like Lanza (?) not sure of the name-the shooter, is to allow certain designated teachers to carry guns. All must have attended training, both on the weapon they carry and with someone with the know-how to determine if they are responsible enough to be trusted with them. You don´t protect anyone by disarming. Simple as that.

The Second Amendment enshrines the God-given right to bear arms. It does not ´grant´ it.

Correct #4. I´d say block new laws to begin with and, then, begin repealing all the idiotic ones (all?).

The truth is politically incorrect and so is difficult to get into the national debate about guns:

The last thing the anti-gun crowd - from the president on down - want is an end to mass shootings, especially in schools.

From their point of view, the deaths of a few, or a few dozen, kids every couple of years is a small price to pay for the chance effectively nullify the second amendment.

The left is forever telling us that this or piece of the constitution was a mistake - even that the whole thing is out of date in a modern world, or at least subject to creative interpretation as a "living, breathing document."

The founders did make one mistake, probably because they gave freedom´s heirs more credit than we deserve: They used the amendment process to incorporate an affirmation of the unalienable rights which are beyond the legitimate authority of any government - especially one based on individual freedom.

The inclusion of what we call the bill of rights was required for and a condition of ratification of the constitution and therefore the removal of any of them violates the contract and renders the whole document invalid.

The whole point of the progressive movement is to free the government from the restrictions of the constitution and thereby replace freedom with a socialist dictatorship.

To conflate two quotations from Marx and Soros, "The principal impediment to the attainment of world socialism is the unreasonable attitude of the average american citizen" - i.e., the average american believes that he or she - individually - has rights.

Just like we know why they don´t want Voter ID or to purge dead voters from the rolls, we also know why the want to render the 2nd Amendment meaningless. They want the tentacles of the federal government to continue spreading over the land unopposed. The only legal owners of firearms in their world will be the military, police and Democrat goons.

It really annoys me that people on our side have given up the argument the founders made that only an unarmed people can be an enslaved people. It´s all now about self defense and hunting. This is NOT what the founders intended.

Been an NRA member for six years now. Bought my Smith 45 M&P the day after Obie stole the 2008 election. Now have my CWP and carry a Smith bodyguard 380. Became convinced needed protection after experiencing our first break-in at the house. Let´s see how tough these tough-talking elected libs would be if they had to go about their jobs with no security details protecting them....with guns. How about you Obie?

Correct me if I´m wrong, but wasn´t the so-called assault weapon left in the trunk of the Newtown shooter´s car? If so, it appears that that info is being suppressed in the news.

The first reaction of government to these acts is to try and restrict the freedoms of law abiding citizens. The reaction to 9/11 is a great example withe new beast Department of Homeland Security and all the restrictions on air travel, etc. This is what government does and we need to be more vigilant than ever to their attempted power grabs.

USAID documents cite Hillary
Clinton in chaos of Afghan aid
Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you —

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
