OFA Email Asks for Anecdotes
of Gun Violence

Breitbart Big Government, by Mary Chastain

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/21/2013 6:44:28 AM

The former campaign apparatus of Barack Obama, Organizing for Action, sent out an email requesting recipients send back stories of gun violence which they have experienced. Sami Rahamim, the author of the email, encourages readers to share their stories to prove to Congress that America needs “sensible solutions” for expanded gun control legislation. President Obama recalled anecdotes of children killed in the infamous Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting when he announced his legislative push for stricter gun control laws in January. He recited several letters from children urging him to restrict the use of firearms.

What about stories of people still alive because of a successful defense with a firearm? Guess that doesn´t fit their agenda, does it!

The antics of the tyrant-wannabes bother me less than the idiocy and apathy of the people as a whole.

Hint: Laws do not control inanimate objects. Laws only compel people who are inclined to obey laws to behave a certain way. Those disinclined to obey laws will do their thing, unimpeded by anything Congress does.

In my many years I have personally witnessed many cases where violent guns have gone into woods and fields for the sole purpose of killing deer, bear,rabbits,squirrels and various birds. In many cases the guns were successful but in some cases they were not. Stupid guns.

Every single month, the NRA magazine "American Rifleman" prints 10 or so stories of defensive gun uses. They take these stories from local newspapers and other news sources. They don´t just make them up. Let´s see them published as "balanced reporting".

Too bad and sad that most of those victims are either dead and buried or their lips are zipped.

Chicago, Detroit, Newark, LA, come to mind.

Our government under liberal Bill Klintoon killed more children at Waco than Sandy Hook by burning them to death... He was eventually impeached and Obozo should be too

The illegal previous assault weapons ban did nothing and was repealed..

Obama taking advice from children is about as dumb as one can get. In a case like this, most kids only parrot what their teachers or parents have said. And Zero is quick to weed out anything that doesn´t match his agenda.

We could crash their site with completely outrageous and and obviously made up stories...

I was the victim of an assault by aliens from the planet ZXOG. They landed in my back pasture and tried to steal my horses, holding me off with ray guns and laser wands.

The American Rifleman magazine publishes stories every month about how a gun used properly stopped violence by predators and thugs.
Guess they musta missed those stories.

They would like some personal "gun violence" stories? Well, okay, here´s a few:

"When I was in my teens in 1986, a young NYPD officer named Scott Gadell was engaged in a gunfight with a criminal who was already out on bail on a murder rap. As Gadell reloaded his 6-round revolver, the perp walked up behind him and shot him in the back of his head, execution style. When Gadell´s body was found, laying in his blood was a half-loaded revolver and scattered individual .38 Special cartridges. I am enthused that Obama support´s Governor Cuomo´s effort to limit law-abiding citizens to one more round than Officer Gadell had when he was executed. Who knows? With seven rounds, Gadell may have forestalled his execution by at least another 10 seconds!"

"Over 10 years ago, a street vendor I knew was walking into his apartment building and confronted from behind by members of the NYPD. The police demanded he show identification. As the vendor pulled out his wallet, one of cops mistook the wallet for a pistol. The cops then began to shoot, firing over 41 rounds, striking the man 19 times and killing him."

"In the town near mine a couple years ago, a couple of MTA police mistook a Nassau County Police Bureau of Special Operations officer for a mentally distrurbed individual who had been killed by other Nassau County cops some 10 minutes earlier. The MTA cops fired on the BSO officer and killed him."

"Then this past August, I was walking to work from 34th Street, when I heard what I thought was machine gun fire. It wasn´t! It was the NYPD firing 16 rounds at a murder suspect, killing the suspect and wounding nine innocent bystanders."

Every morning as I go to work, I am frustrated by how crowded the streets are with school buses and parents driving kids to school. Our schools and streets are overcrowded with Criminal Aliens, they fill the local Emergency Rooms, take jobs and housing, and I am forced to pay for all this wonderful "diversity" through my taxes. I have no children in public schools, yet I am forced to pay for them. If I don´t, MEN WITH GUNS will come to my house and confiscate my property.
Our cry of Freedom used to be "No taxation without representation." Now it is "No representation without taxation." All these criminal non-citizens are using our public resources and we are forced to pay for it, while our politicians seem to think they were elected to represent the criminals.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

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.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

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.

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
