Connecticut senator wants background
checks for ammunition buyers

CNN, by Carol Cratty

Washington - In the wake of the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting, one of the state´s senators announced Tuesday he will introduce legislation requiring background checks to buy ammunition. "Ammunition is now the black hole in gun violence prevention," Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal said. Blumenthal said it is illegal to sell either guns or ammunition to certain groups of people including felons, the mentally ill and those who commit domestic violence. But under current law someone can buy bullets from a gun store without any review of the person´s background.

I don´t have a problem with some variety of enhanced background checks.But i don´t see a reason where the same person would have to get checked every time they buy ammo. One BG check should do it.

The left is just taking a bunch of air swipes at the problem. As long as they stay relatively harmless,I don´t see it as a big problem. The problem is the hardcore gun grabbers.

Of course Nancy Lanza would have passed a background check so this law would have not made any difference to her son.

Jared Loughner passed a Federal background check even though he was manifestly insane and had been arrested for drug possession.

No. It´s easy to see where this is headed. Leftist like blumenthal won´t stop until people have to present an ID to buy so much as a box of fifty 22 calibers. All such sales will eventually entered into a database which is part of an enormous expansion of big government. It is dangerous to allow the incremental confiscation of individual rights. G

Continued. Give liberals nothing on gun control. The 2nd Amendment is non-negotiable.

Letting Liberal Democrats set your gun policy is like letting pedophiles run your children´s day care. It may turn out alright, but I wouldn´t bet that way.

Our own government is smelling like King George. Next will be a search for "ammunition stores".

Just remember that one of the only pieces of legislation that Present Obama put his name on during his meteoric rise (other than " No Second Chance for Abortion Survivors´) had to do with heavy restrictions on the purchase/availability of ammunition.

Here´s a better idea; Perform an in depth background check on EVERY wannabe Congress critter, then publish the results prior to elections.

Excuse me, but we don´t even run background checks on aides to members of the cabinet or Congress. Why is it more important to check out ammunition buyers than government employees? When the IRS bought hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition, what checks were done then?

The next step is to limit how much you can buy. Like buying decongestants at the drugstore.

Most "Gun Stores" don´t carry bullets, you need to go to a reloading supplies store to purchase, casings, powder, primers, shot and bullets -- ammunition components.

A magazine feeding bullets would fit on a high-end reloading press or an air rifle.

A Star Player Accused, and
a Flawed Rape Investigation
New York Times, by Walt Bogdanich    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/16/2014 3:36:33 PM     Post Reply
Tallahassee, Fla. — Early on the morning of Dec. 7, 2012, a freshman at Florida State University reported that she had been raped by a stranger somewhere off campus after a night of drinking at a popular Tallahassee bar called Potbelly’s. As she gave her account to the police, several bruises began to appear, indicating recent trauma. Tests would later find semen on her underwear. For nearly a year, the events of that evening remained a well-kept secret until the woman’s allegations burst into the open, roiling the university and threatening a prized asset: Jameis Winston, one of the marquee names of

How Safe Are U.S. Ferries?

Almost 300 people are missing off the coast of South Korea after a ferry there, carrying mostly schoolchildren, capsized and sank. About 164 people have been pulled from the wreckage, and the race to find survivors is well underway. No one ever expects a disaster, but this one has especially stunned people. Passengers say they heard a loud thud, which suggests the vessel collided with something, but it´s too early to tell. "This particular ferry was built in Japan, who make some of the best ships in the world. It wasn´t anywhere near full and it was travelling a well-worn

WASHINGTON — It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered. Mrs. Clinton played an energetic role in virtually every foreign policy issue of President Obama’s first term, advocating generally hawkish views internally while using her celebrity to try to restore America’s global standing after the hit it took during the George W. Bush administration. But her halting answer suggests a problem that Mrs. Clinton could confront as she

Here’s What the CIA Director
Was Really Doing in Kiev
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake & Josh Rogin    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/16/2014 4:43:37 AM     Post Reply
The head of the CIA just made a secretive journey to Ukraine—to do what, he won’t say. But the answer could change the power equation in the hottest of geopolitical hotspots. The Obama administration is now considering a new policy to share more real-time intelligence with the interim government in Kiev after pressure from some in the U.S. military, Congress and U.S. allies in Ukraine. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan met with Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and First Deputy Prime Minister Vitaliy Yarema to discuss the formation of new, more secure channels for sharing U.S. intelligence with the country

Liberals in rose-colored glasses
consider ObamaCare a ‘victory’

Ever since ObamaCare supposedly hit the arbitrary target of 7 million sign-ups by March 31, its supporters have been taking the most premature victory lap since conservative proponents of the Iraq War (like me) crowed about the results of the three elections inside Iraq in 2005 and how they demonstrated the country was on the verge of a historic peace. “It’s all over but the shouting: ObamaCare is working,” said Eugene Robinson in Tuesday’s Washington Post. “All the naysaying in the world can’t drown out mounting evidence that the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, is a real success.” Those

South Korea says hundreds missing

South Korean officials said Wednesday that nearly 300 people were still missing several hours after a passenger ferry sank off that country´s southern coast, leaving at least two dead and seven injured. A government official had said earlier Wednesday that around 100 people were unaccounted for, but the number was later revised upward due to a tallying error. The ferry was carrying 477 people, most of them high school students, and was bound for the island of Jeju when it sent a distress call at around 9 a.m. local time Wednesday as it began leaning to one side, according to

Could the Boston Marathon

BOSTON - It was a shocking slaying in a Boston suburb that sometimes goes years without one homicide, let alone three at once. The victims´ throats had been sliced in a home on a tree-lined street, marijuana and cash strewn over their bodies. The investigation languished for more than 18 months until just a few days after the Boston Marathon explosions, when the FBI identified the suspected bombers as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, ethnic Chechens who emigrated from Russia to the U.S. about a decade ago.

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

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

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

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)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
