Bullet overkill
Washington Post, by Editorial

Posted By:Dreadnought, 2/24/2013 11:23:07 PM

SEN. CHRIS MURPHY (D-Conn.) offered a trenchant comment the other day about the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December, which was carried out by Adam Lanza with a semiautomatic assault weapon that reloaded bullets in rapid succession from a single ammunition magazine. Twenty children and six adults were killed in a deadly few minutes of fire. “We do know that historically in these instances, amateurs have trouble switching magazines,” the senator said, according to the New York Times. “I believe, and many of the parents there believe, that if Lanza had to switch cartridges nine times

FTA: . . . a report for the National Institute of Justice noted that studies have shown that attacks with semiautomatic weapons “result in more shots fired, more persons hit, and more wounds inflicted per victim than do attacks with other firearms.”
Yep, there are more people shot with semi-automatics than with muzzle-loaders. Or single shot .22s. But if you took away semi-automatics, you would soon find that revolvers are the real danger. Then those bolt-action rifles that can hit a target a mile away. Then those pump shotguns. Then those single-shot everything. Then crossbows. Seems like one certain tribe in Africa managed to kill tens of thousands of another tribe not to many years ago using mainly machetes. So gotta ban them too!

Yes, but the founders intended that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed...because - what if I needed to defend myself against an imperial government, like the one we have now...who wishes to confiscate my hard earned money and give it to folks who vote for them...and who is discussing taking my 401K and retirement accounts and giving me a mere 3% to further support their lust for power? Read the founders reasons for the second amendment. Virtually nothing that is being discussed will solve the killings of innocents in Ct and Chicago. It´s the culture and the democrats destroy it every day.

We need the same weapons that police do, for the same reasons. If the police think they need magazines with greater than 10 shots then the citizen who doesn´t have personal police protection needs it too.

It is my understanding that no assault rifle was used in the Sandy Hook shooting. Lanza had an assault rifle but he left it in the car. He used three pistols. At least thats what I read some time back. So why this fixation on assault rifles, big clips and Sandy Hook. Oh, never mind, I can figure it out.

I could be mistaken but it seems to me that in cases like most of these mass shootings the police show up after the damage has been done, not knocking the police, just stating what I belive to be fact.

So tell me, why do Federal agencies need to buy 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition (except to limit ammunition available to citizens?)

Whoever said the 2nd amendment has to do with just protection against criminals, or to harvest venison steaks for ducks, rabbts or farm varmints. The primary reason was that goverment(s) not be able to run roughshod over its citizens.

Once again, why do domestic governmental agencies need 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition, enough to kill all of us multiple times?

A person who seriously practices for awhile can change magazines attached to a rifle in a couple of seconds. Remember 3 10 round magazines equates to 1 30 round magazine, and it would just take a few seconds more to fire off 3 10 rounds magazines then it would to fire off 1 30 round magazine.

The Congress would be much better off in the long run trying to find effective ways to keep all firearms out of the hands of dangerous crazy people, rather then take away the established constitutional rights of hundreds of millions of law abiding people in response to the criminally insane acts of a few dangerous crazy people.

It would be appreciated if the truth about Sandy Hook would be told. #4 questions the weapon used, different opinions have been given;we all saw the rifle take from the trunk of the car in the parking lot and searches for others running into the trees. Had Adam Lanza been given scopolamine? It is eerily too contemporaneous with the push to throw out the 2nd amendment and a lot of people speaking out against guns don´t seem to know what they are talking about other than an ideology.

I´m sorry but the root cause of almost all these massacres, is the twisted thinking of liberal-polluted minds. It is the people who buy into the ´Me-me-me´, ´I´m a victim´, ´It´s not my fault´, ´I need justice´ philosophy that commit these crimes.

Therefore I propose we ban Liberalism and Progressive ism. We would still occasionally have this kind of thing happen - but it would be rare.

According to some police reports he did switch mags many, many times and most of the discarded mags were mostly full. He was playing Call of Duty and kept swapping in a full magazine when he had a chance.

This is why we need the full police report before we make any more stupid laws.

Ironically, just a stone´s throw from SHES, the Town of Newtown owns a large property and building complex that was once a state mental hospital. (Google Fairfield Hills Hospital)

It was closed because liberal cry-babies pushed the "de-institutionalization" of mental health treatment agenda. Rather than put away some people for treatment, they´re left to roam in the "community", which to the twisted liberal mind is more "fair".

Once in the community, the mentally ill can take part in everyday life, watch violent videos and maybe take their meds, and spend quality time with their mommies at gun ranges.

And liberals go about like nothing happened, proudly displaying their new YES WE DID bumper stickers. Well, yes, you did. And you libs will answer for it.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin blasted President Barack Obama for nominating as his new Health and Human Services Secretary the same woman who ordered the shutdown of the war memorials during the so-called government shutdown last year. After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director. This is the same person who sent the email initiating the barricading of the memorials, even as veterans were arriving in D.C. on their "honor flights" to see the memorials that they built.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving
