The Facts About Assault
Weapons and Crime

Wall Street Journal, by John R. Lott Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/17/2013 8:10:48 PM

Warning about "weapons designed for the theater of war," President Obama on Wednesday called for immediate action on a new Federal Assault Weapons Ban. He said that "more of our fellow Americans might still be alive" if the original assault weapons ban, passed in 1994, had not expired in 2004. Last month, in the wake of the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) promised to introduce an updated version of the ban. She too warned of the threat posed by "military weapons." After the nightmare of Newtown, their concern is understandable.

They way they´re still pushing this you´d almost think the rumors of O´tard arranging to sell off US resources to the Chinese in exchange for our debt were true - said rumor indicating the Chinese (and the O´tards) wouldn´t like the armed response citizens would make when they found out what had been done.

Unfortunately for the liberal Democrat gun control activists the 2nd Amendment does not indicate that they have any right to tell the people that they can no longer own and possess semi-automatic firearms that are in common use, or how many rounds they should have in a deer rifle.

The people of the USA have had the right to keep and bear arms long before the USA was even formed back in 1776, and that right should not be taken away because a few crazy people commit insanely criminal acts. The government should be looking at affective ways to keep guns out of the hands of the criminally insane and not law abiding citizens.

Great article, but a question:

FTA: " Last month, in the wake of the horrific shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., ..."

And: "The killer in Newtown used a Bushmaster .223."

There is TV video footage, up all over the internet, of the police finding and removing the Bushmaster from the trunk of Lanza´s car. It´s easy to find on Youtube. Since Lanza killed himself inside the school, he couldn´t have used the rifle found in his trunk. So why does everyone keep repeating that he used the Bushmaster AR-15? What´s up with that?

Warning about "weapons designed for the theater of war," President Obama on Wednesday called for immediate action blah blah blah

When the Revolutionary War began, the typical "hunting rifle" of the colonial farmers was a better performing weapon than the one issued to the soldiers of the British Army.

That is the G-d given right that the Second Amendment protects...as good or better that the army of tyranny.

Never waste a good crisis #4. The left has been salivating over the chance to ban "assault weapons" for years. Newtown gave them their excuse (crisis).

Read Federalist #46 off of a link on today´s American Thinker. Infantry weapons are what the Founding Fathers had in mind, with a mobilized militia (local ad-hoc organizations, run by the local government)fielding an army 10 to 20 times larger than the standing army as an insurance policy against tyranny.

To maybe answer #8: In my county we have two deputies on every shift. Assuming none are in court or otherwise not there. If they handle a call on the far side of the county (where most of the trouble is), it could easily take 20 minutes to get to our side, even with lights and siren and burning rubber.
Its just a fact of life out here.
That´s why we arm ourselves. My gun is never more than a few seconds away. Same with the neighbors. It works pretty well for us.

Chris Hayes: Would Fox News

Mediaite, by Matt Wilstein    Original Article

Monday night, MSNBC’s Chris Hayes used an essay on Slate about the Bundy Ranch standoff and race as a jumping off point to discuss how this story would be different if rancher Cliven Bundy’s armed supporters were black. “When is it that people take up arms against the federal or state government, point their arms at federal agents and face no consequence for it?” Hayes asked. “The answer is to that is hardly ever.” Hayes went on to imagine how Fox News react to the New Black Panthers if they decided to “greet law enforcement with long guns.” Or what if the

Reid: ‘Something Will Happen’ To
Stop Nevada Rancher Cliven Bundy
KLUC-FM (Las Vegas)*, by Staff    Original Article

BUNKERVILLE, Nev. — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says “something is going to happen” to get Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy to stop letting his cattle graze on federal land. “It’s obvious that you can’t just walk away from this. And we can speculate all we want to speculate to what’s going to happen next,” Reid told KSNV-TV. “But I don’t think it’s going to be tomorrow that something is going to happen, but something will happen. We are a nation of laws, not of men and women.” Reid called militias staying at Bundy’s Bunkerville ranch “domestic violent terrorist-wannabes.” Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev.,

Eric Holder: Obama’s ‘Clemency
Project’ will help drug offenders
sentenced under ‘the old regime’
Daily Caller, by Patrick Howley    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/22/2014 7:56:12 PM     Post Reply
Attorney General Eric Holder criticized drug sentences doled out under “the old regime” in a video Monday announcing the Obama administration’s “Clemency Project 2014.” “In 2010, President Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act reducing unfair disparities in sentences imposed on people for offenses involving different forms of cocaine. But there’s still too many people in federal prison who were sentenced under the old regime and who, as a result, will have to spend far more time in prison than they would if sentenced today for exactly the same crime. This is simply not right,” Holder says in the video. President Obama could

“If Obamacare Dies,
Sarah Palin Killed It”
National Review Online, by Wseley J. Smith    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/22/2014 7:54:08 PM     Post Reply
Several weeks ago the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia sponsored a debate–more a discussion–between me and Thaddeus Mason Pope about end of life care under the Affordable Care Act. He supports medical futility. I oppose it. We went from there. I began my presentation with the quote in the headline above–asserting that Palin’s term “death panels” may have put a spear through the heart of Obamacare. I then said: People are afraid of centralized bureaucrats dictating whether Craig’s [the moderator’s terminally ill babies) children can have medical care, whether my 96-year-old mother can have medical care, whether people with disabilities can have medical

Corruption: The senator who once guarded funding for a cowboy poetry festival in his home state now thinks those who stand in the way of his family´s increasing fortunes for defending their land are domestic terrorists. Cliven Bundy now finds himself being called a "domestic terrorist" for disputing the payment of grazing fees to a federal government he believes does not or at least should not own the 84% of Nevada that his cattle graze upon. "Those people who hold themselves out to be patriots are not. They´re nothing more than domestic terrorists," said Sen. Harry Reid last Thursday. "I repeat: What

After Breitbart Texas reported on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) intent to seize 90,000 acres belonging to Texas landholders along the Texas/Oklahoma line, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott questioned the BLM’s authority to take such action. “I am about ready,” General Abbott told Breitbart Texas, “to go to go to the Red River and raise a ‘Come and Take It’ flag to tell the feds to stay out of Texas.” Gen. Abbott sent a strongly-worded letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze, asking for answers to a series of questions related to the potential land grab. “I am deeply concerned about the

Before ObamaCare, IBD Helped
Spare The Nation HillaryCare
Investors Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 4/22/2014 7:35:16 PM     Post Reply
Although this editorial was written more than 20 years ago, just replace "Clinton" with "Obama," and it all applies perfectly to ObamaCare, from the phony promises to the bogus financing scheme to the massive new bureaucracy. It was this editorial and as many as 100 more like it in IBD that helped spare the nation the tragedy that would have been HillaryCare. The 246-page first draft of President Clinton´s health care reform proposal tells us plenty about the type of people in the White House these days. The plan reads like a very slick con job, and that should cause every taxpaying

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

   

 



 
Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.
