Menino: Veep promised him
fast action on gun control

Boston Herald, by David Wedge

Vice President Joe Biden “guaranteed” Mayor Thomas M. Menino — a leading national gun control advocate — that President Obama will pass sweeping firearms reforms by the end of the month, the mayor said today. “He said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January,’” Menino said at City Hall today. “They’re going to get it done.” The mayor, who has been recovering from a host of ailments for the past two months, said Biden called him several times while he was in the hospital, including a call after the Newtown school massacre

It´s hard to tell if these guys are just made of pure stupid, or if they´re nefarious tyrants. Either way, they´re trouble.

Looks like Biden and Obambi are confident they can get Boehner and the Rebublicans to completely surrender on gun confiscation legislation by the end of the month.

To echo an prior poster´s point - and I sincerely don´t know the answer to this question, but either these wannabe tyrants have no idea they are playing with fire tempting fate by lighting the fuse on a civil war, or that is exactly what they want?

When a government is willing to use all of its resources, including the implied and actual use force, to disarm law-abiding citizens at the price of those citizens´ lives and/or freedon, then we are approaching the same challenge our Founders faced at Lexington and Concord almost 238 years ago.

Obe can legislate exe orders and Congressional dems can pass all the bills they want then the Republicans can cave all they want BUT it takes an amendment ratified by 36 State legislatures ( 2/3 of them) to change the Constitution and it´s doubtful that the BIll Of Rights can be changed at all.
Since red states outnumber the lib states the amendment will meet the same fate as the equal rights for women and many other political endeavors.

This seems to me to be a 10th ammendment issue: The Tenth Amendment states the Constitution´s principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government by the Constitution, nor prohibited to the States, are reserved to the States or the people. If there is a power granted to the federal government, it is certainly not power over guns. In fact, that power is specifically denied. States may control guns, not the federal government. BTW, look how great a job Illinois is doing.

We are Leonidas.

"...shall not be infringed" is incapable of parsing.

#18: Those who no longer consider the Constitution worth defending [even if only from the contempt others have shown for it] should abandon the field and cede it to those who still have stomach for the fight. And who still respect and value its principles, and for the sacrifices of our forbears.

#19. you have a long, tough, bloody fight ahead of you if you are going to make the 10th amendment mean what it meant to Americans before 1861. Remember, at that time there were 30 independent, sovereign states united only by the Constitution. Since 1865, there is only one state; The United States which is now composed of 50 de facto provinces. There´s a heap of difference and the 10th amendment has meant nothing Lincoln´s war on those independent, sovereign states turned them into provinces.

#17, suggest you look at the intent and history of the 14th amendment. It was originally offered as a bill to only oppose the 2nd amendment on the several states. After debate, it was decided to impose the whole BOR.
So, actually, the states don´t get to control guns, just a lot of low information voters seem to think it´s OK for their 2nd amendment right to be trampled because a state legislature does it instead of the feds; not that the feds aren´t stomping on it too. (see 1986 GCA for further details).
Also see 97th congress, 2nd session, "The Right To Keep And Bear Arms", Feb 1982,Government Printing Office.
You can skip the "Other Views" sections where the libtards throw their out-right lies into the mix. Teddy "U-boat Commander" Kennedy had the printing stopped, I seem to remember, but a federal repository library should have it in the stacks or can get it to loan.

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud
Tampa Tribune [FL], by Michelle Bearden & Staff    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/20/2014 1:30:26 PM     Post Reply
CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds
Steady at Dismal 8.1%
Breitbart California, by William Bigelow    Original Article

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees. The field of finance

On Easter weekend, Diogo Morgado portraying Jesus Christ is on screens everywhere. Morgado is the star of Son of God, by executive producers Mark Burnett and wife Roma Downey, which continues to thrive in theaters, pulling in $59 million since its debut Feb. 28. Downey believes there will be a "spike" in attendance at theaters this weekend because of the spiritual holiday for a film that has already proved a box-office force.

SCARBOROUGH, Maine- John C. Houbolt, an engineer whose contributions to the U.S. space program were vital to NASA´s successful moon landing in 1969, has died. He was 95. Houbolt died Tuesday at a nursing home in Scarborough, Maine, of complications from Parkinson´s disease, his son-in-law Tucker Withington, of Plymouth, Mass., confirmed Saturday. As NASA describes on its website, while under pressure during the U.S.-Soviet space race, Houbolt was the catalyst in securing U.S. commitment to the science and engineering theory that eventually carried the Apollo crew to the moon and back safely. His efforts in the early 1960s are largely

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.

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

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
