Why Do Democrats love Revolvers?
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

If I were a semiautomatic pistol, I would be getting a complex. What Democrats really hate is semiautomatic rifles, although it isn’t clear exactly why. True, the Sandy Hook killings were carried out with such a weapon, but in the scheme of things, rifles of any sort are rarely used as murder weapons. In 2011, according to the FBI, there were 14,612 victims of homicide in the U.S., down 14.7% from 2007. Of those 14,612, only 323 were murdered with any type of rifle. More than five times as many were killed with knives. More were killed with blunt objects, and more than twice as many were killed

They go after semiautomatics because they operate incrementally; the other guns will be taken next. Same way we now have gay marriage in the military, advancing later to lowering the age of consent to include children, to polygamy, who knows what else. It´s why "the poor" have free cell phones and can buy fast food with food stamps.

Great. Now I have to rethink my love of revolvers. My personal carry gun is a 5 shot snub nose .357 revolver. They are completely reliable and not dependent on bullet weight or powder charge as autos are. Magazine spring fatigue is not an issue. There is no need to rack the slide, and they are as close to completely safe as one can get. About half my handgun cabinet is autos and they make some fine ones, but I still feel better with a revolver.
Now the libs like them? Grrrr.

Don´t kid yourselves. Give them enough power, and the socialists will ban every firearm down to matchlocks, and then start on swords, axes, and knives.

If there´s no kids around a loaded revolver is just fine. But I think an unloaded semi with a handy clip is less prone to accidents.

Another reason is that if they can hold their shots fired down, they leave no brass to track them. With a magazine full you leave a trail of empties. With a wheel-gun, if you can hold your number of shots fired to a single cylinder full, there is no brass to trace and you can disappear with only the spent bullets to mess up the scenery. Good planning.

Agreeing with Reply 2 - Posted by: chumley

The snub nosed .357 is reliable, simple, and is plenty accurate for self defense. The .357 is actually an elongated .38 special. So, .38 special ammo can be shot from the heavier .357 hand gun, which is what I do to minimize recoil. With my .357 snub nose S&W, I can hit a soda can at 20 ft.

In the heat of battle, if it should come to that, there is the fight or flight reaction that hypes a person up, and makes them prone to pulling the trigger before aiming. With a revolver, you know you have to properly aim for each shot because you only have a few shots. But some situations call for an autoloader and some situations call for a revolver.

One reason they´re after semi-automatic rifles more than pistols is that it´s harder to hit targets at long distance with pistols.

Their target isn´t reducing civilian murders, but thwarting any ideas of armed revolt.

I´m more concerned about the projected crowd loss for Obama´s inauguration. Where´s people uniting around our great presidents second term?A show of appreciation for his first term accomplishments would tell the world America´s on it´s way back.

They can ban booze (didn´t work), and they can ban pot (hasn´t worked), and they can ban prostitutes (wink-wink), and whatever they ban, if there is genuine demand for it, the underground economy will become the supplier. This serves to empower the gangs and sydicates (higher margins). And that means more murders. Does the mob want guns banned. Yes, of course. None of those background checks, either.

This article infers the Sandy Hook killings were committed with a semiautomatic rifle. I heard he had a rifle in his car, I thought the murders were committed with two handguns.

Did I miss something?

Doesn´t anyone remember the liberal war on the "Saturday Night Special" back in the 80´s? This would mean they could define what that meant, whether it was a $10 handgun, or a $2,000 handgun, that was up to them. What it really meant was that poor people couldn´t own guns as they´d keep raising the bar until every handgun was a "Saturday Night Special."

Fast forward to 2012, and now the liberal mantra is "Assault Rifle", where again, they define the term as they go along. "Assault Rifle" could be defined as a black-powder musket, as American troops certainly used them for that purpose against British soldiers in the American War for Independence.

#14, You and I and a few others must have missed the release of the Medical Examiner´s report which stated that all were killed with the rifle.

F´nSwine´s proposed law would not have prevented the Newtown killings. The killer killed the owner of the legally-purchased and registered firearms first.

the good news about a total firearms ban is that then, like in England, you will be able to purchase reasonably priced full auto guns. Just not legally....

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

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. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article

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

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

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

Democrats settle on fairness

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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
