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The illegal previous assault weapons ban did nothing and was repealed..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

DNC Chair and Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) told Meet the Press’ David Gregory Sunday morning that President Barack Obama’s latest delay in the approval of the proposed Keystone Pipeline was not a political decision meant to animate members of the Democratic base ahead of the 2014 midterms. “As a member of Congress who represents hundreds of thousands of people in south Florida, I want to make sure the right decision is arrived at and that the president makes that decision carefully and doesn’t factor politics into his decision, which I don’t think he is,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Drought -- and neighbors --
press Las Vegas to conserve water

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

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

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

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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
