World´s largest firearms dealer says it

The world´s largest firearms dealer says it has sold 3.5 years of magazines for the gun used by the Sandy Hook killer in just three days. And now they are struggling to meet the demand. Brownells president Pete Brownell made a public apology to gun owners for the delay in fulfilling orders of assault weapon magazines, explaining that the company had experienced ´unprecedented´ demand for AR-15 ammunition magazines in the last three days.[Snip]´I wanted to take a minute to shed some insight on the magazine situation if i can. First of all I wanted to offer an apology for the

Comments:
If anything sends a message about the Second Amendment, this does. (And the many other reports of extraordinarily high sales volume serve to confirm its veracity.)

I thought I read that the rifle was left in the killers car. I could be wrong but that wouldn´t fit the "assault rifle" narrative then would it?....no.

Dear Daily Mail [UK] Staff:

These are not assault weapons. They are not automatic. They are ordinary rifles that are made to LOOK different. OK, they´re a little scarier, more militaristic.

But they are NOT automatic - not since the 30´s - and they are not made for assault. They shoot no different than any other long gun.

So, do a little research on your own - it took me 35 seconds yesterday - and stop misleading the world on what you think is going on over here.

Our Second Amendment is designed to protect our citizenry from the tyrannical government our Founders left behind (in YOUR country, I believe!). It´s what keeps a free people, free. The rest of our Bill of Rights and Constitution are rendered meaningless without the Second Amendment to protect them.

And so it will remain.

´Out of our cold dead hands.´

Pick-up a Glock 27 in .40 caliber! A great carry piece. Very accurate and with plenty of punch!

Agree #1. But the term Assault Rifle carries such gravitas for the left (and the uninformed).

This shows what the American populace thinks about gun control, magazine bans, and other such feel-good do nothing laws.

I too read reports that stated that the rifle remained in the car, and that the killer had a Sig Sauer and a Glock with him.
Pretty awkward, killing oneself with a rifle !

Notice that the left does not talk about "assault rifles" anymore, they now talk about "assault weapons" that they define as any semi-automatic handgun or rifle that can "possibly" hold a clip or magazine containing more then 10 rounds of ammunition. Those are the firearms that the left now has their sights on to ban, such a ban would therefore encompass just about every modern defensive firearm produced and sold in America today.

If that were to happen the left would also be wiping out most of the US small arms and associated industries as they exist in America today, as those industries could not survive depending on diminishing military small arms contracts in the future. That would mean that thousands more well paying US jobs in those industries would also disappear.

A concealable .45, like a Kimber, is the best concealed carry defense. One, or two shots at the most, is all that´s needed!

Ha! Like I would be interested in the opinion about my country from a lost country like Britain. Not likely.Their people are so helpless now and the foreigners, all militant and very anti-British, have crushed their freedoms to death- and all they can now do about it is whimper.

Just to be a little more accurate, Brownell´s is one of the world´s largest mail order firearms parts and accessory dealers. They do not sell complete firearms per se.

University of East London bans segregated
Muslim event from its premises

Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/17/2014 8:58:27 AM     Post Reply
I blogged yesterday about this "segregated" Muslim event organised by the Islamic Society of the University of East London, due to happen tonight at UEL´s main lecture theatre on its Docklands campus. Much to my surprise, UEL immediately banned it from their campus. [Snip] UEL should be congratulated over this. As I pointed out, it has an "equality and diversity" policy. It didn´t know that the dinner organised by the Islamic society--which was to include a speech by the controversial anti-gay preacher Murtaza Khan--was segregated by sex and was providing a platform for an extremist. The university´s decision to pull the

Tony Blair´s religious charity has links to an Islamic extremist group being investigated by MI5 and MI6, it has been alleged. [Snip] The organisation has been declared a terrorist group in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, and could be banned in Britain, despite insisting they do not have links to extremist factions. The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Watch, which has been looking into the group for 13 years, revealed that Dr Ismail Khudr Al-Shatti, an adviser to the Kuwaiti government and a member of Mr Blair’s advisory council, is a leading member of the Kuwaiti branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. the

Deep in the flat and featureless landscape of eastern Ukraine, it is all too ­possible that the outline of World War III is taking shape. Whipped up by the Kremlin ­propaganda machine and led by Russian ­military intelligence, armed men are erecting road blocks, storming police stations and ripping down the country’s flag. They are demolishing not just their own country — bankrupt, ill-run and beleaguered — but also the post-war order that has kept most of Europe and us, here in Britain, safe and free for decades. Vladimir Putin is striking at the heart of the West.

Why are the US authorities trying to extradite and imprison arguably the one man in the world with the skills and influence to bring peace, stability, and prosperity to fractured Ukraine? This week I flew to Vienna, Austria, to find out in a world exclusive interview with Ukraine´s Dmitry Firtash, the billionaire industrialist, philanthropist, and political fixer who is striving desperately to help his country forge an independent future free from the bullying of Russia and the meddling of the West in next month´s scheduled elections. And his biggest obstacle? According to Firtash, it´s Barack Obama.

The Internal Revenue Service is considering a bold move to label perks like free lunch given to workers by companies as taxable. The agency wonders if freebies like haircuts and gym memberships are a way to compensate the highly skilled rather than just a way to jumpstart productivity. After all, argue proponents of such a tax, workers at Silicon Valley firms like Google and Facebook receive free meals from famously fancy in-house eateries every day. Some companies even go a step further by offering freebies like haircuts, car services, and child care. Typical workaday folks can expect to pay for all

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
